Context Readings

Yahweh Comforts Zion

13 And you forget Jehovah your Maker, who has stretched out the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth. And you dread continually, every day, because of the fury of the oppressor, as if he were ready to destroy. And where is the fury of the oppressor? 14 Bowed he hurries to be freed, and not that he should die in the pit, nor that he lack his bread. 15 But I am Jehovah your God, who divided the sea, and its waves roared; Jehovah of Hosts is His name.
