Who to us shall sojourn with devouring fire? who to us with everlasting burning? 15 He going in justice and speaking uprightness, rejecting in the plunder of oppression; shaking his hands from holding upon a gift, shutting his ear from the hearing of bloods, and binding up his eyes from looking upon evil; 16 He shall dwell upon heights: the strongholds of rocks his height: his bread was given; his waters sure.
