Judgment and Hope
Thus says the LORD
, The heaven is
my throne, and the earth a footstool for my feet. What kind of house shall you build to me? and what kind of place for my rest?
For all these things
I made by my hand, and [3
these], says the LORD
. And upon whom shall I look upon, but only upon the humble and unassuming, and the
one trembling at my words?
But the lawless one, the one sacrificing a calf to me is
as the one striking a man; and the one sacrificing of the
as the one killing a dog; and the one offering fine flour is
as the one offering the
blood of a pig; the one offering frankincense for a memorial is
as blasphemous. And they chose their ways, and their abominations which their soul wanted.
And I will choose their mockeries, and [2
their sins 1
I will recompense] against them. For I called them, and they did not hearken to me; I spoke and they heard not; and they acted wickedly before me, and [2
that which 3
I did not 4
word of the LORD
! O ones trembling at his word. Let [2
your brethren] to the ones detesting you, and abhorring you, that the name of the LORD
should be glorified, and should be seen in their gladness, but those shall be ashamed.
A voice of a cry from out of the
city; a voice from out of the
voice of the LORD
recompensing a recompense to the adversaries.
Before her travailing to give birth, before the
coming of the misery of the pangs, she fled and gave birth to a male.
Who heard such? and who has seen thus? Has
earth] in one day? or even [2
given birth 1
a nation] at once, that [2
gave birth to 1
Zion] her children?
But I gave this expectation, and you did not remember me, said the LORD
. And behold, I [2the one
and 4the one
made], said your God.
Be glad, O Jerusalem, and let [5
assemble for a festival 6
the ones 3
her]! And the ones dwelling her rejoice in joy, all as many as mourn for her!
that you should nurse and be filled up from the
breast of her comfort; that sucking out you should indulge at the
introduction of her glory.
For thus says the LORD
, Behold, I turn aside to them as a river of peace, and as a rushing stream inundating the
glory of the
nations. Their children [2
shall be carried], and [2
shall be comforted].
As if any mother shall comfort, so also I shall comfort you; and in Jerusalem you shall be comforted.
And you shall see, and [2
shall rejoice 1
your heart], and your bones [2
shall rise up]; and [4
shall be known 1
hand 3of the LORD
] to the ones fearing him, and he shall threaten the ones resisting persuasion.
For behold the LORD
a fire 1
shall come], even as a blast by
his chariots, to recompense [2
punishment], and being contemptuously rejected in a flame of fire.
For by the fire of the LORD
shall be judged 1
earth], and by his broadsword all flesh. Many shall be slain by the LORD
The ones purifying themselves and cleansing themselves in the gardens, and [10
thresholds 1the ones
of a pig 4
mouse], together shall be consumed, said the LORD
And I [2
their works 3
their device 1
know]. And I come to bring together all the nations, and the tongues. And they shall come and shall see my glory.
And I will leave upon them a sign. And I will send out from them ones having been delivered unto the nations -- unto Tarshish, and Pul, and Lud, and Meshach, and Tubal, and unto Greece, and unto the islands -- the ones at a distance, the ones who have not heard of my name, nor have seen my glory. And they shall announce my glory among the nations.
And they shall lead your brethren from out of all the nations, as
a gift to the LORD
, with horses, and chariots, in royal chariots drawn by
mules with awnings, into the holy city Jerusalem. And the LORD
said, As [4
may offer 1
of Israel] their sacrifices to me with psalms in the house of the LORD
that from them I will take priests and Levites, said the LORD
in which 3
For] the [2
new] and the [2
new] which I make wait before me, says the LORD
, so I shall establish your seed, and your name.
And it will be month by month, and Sabbath by Sabbath, [3
shall come 1
flesh] to do obeisance before me in Jerusalem, said the LORD
And they shall go forth, and shall see the carcasses of men, the ones violating against me. For their worm shall not come to an end, and their fire shall not be extinguished. And they will be for a sight to all flesh.
