Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the people be assembled: who among them can declare this, and shew us former things? let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified: or let them hear, and say, It is truth.
Assemble yourselves and come Draw near together, ye escaped of the nations, - They know not Who carry the wood of their carved image, And pray unto a GOD who cannot save.
Assemble yourselves - all of you and hear, Who among them, hath told these things? he whom Yahweh loveth, will execute - His pleasure, on Babylon, And his stroke on the Chaldeans.
Hear ye, this all ye peoples, Give ear, all ye inhabitants of this passing world;
El, Elohim, Yahweh, hath spoken, and culled the earth, From the rising of the sun, unto the going in thereof:
Give help - and come in, all ye nations on every side, and gather yourselves together, - Thither, bring down, O Yahweh, thy mighty ones!
Bring near your contention, Saith Yahweh, - Advance your defences, Saith the King of Jacob:
Who then, like me, can call, and declare it, and order it, for me, Seeing that I appointed an age-abiding people, - Or things yet to be, and that shall come to pass, Let them declare on their part.
Declaring from the beginning, the latter end, And from olden time, that which had never been done, - Saying My purpose shall stand, and All my pleasure, will I perform;
therefore told I thee - in time past, Ere yet it came, I let thee hear, - Lest thou shouldest say Mine idol wrought them, Yea, my carved image and my molten image, commanded them!
That they may
Put me in mind, Let us enter into judgment at once, - Recount, thou, that thou mayest be justified:
But, if it be, a vexation, in your eyes, to serve Yahweh, choose ye for yourselves, to-day, whom ye will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served, that were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye are dwelling, - but, I and my house, will serve Yahweh.
1 Kings 18:21
And Elijah drew near unto all the people, and said - How long are ye limping on the two divided opinions? If, Yahweh, be GOD, follow, him, but, if, Baal, follow, him. But the people answered him, not a word.
