O Yahweh, my strength, and my refuge, and my place to fly to, in the day of distress, - Unto thee, shall nations come in, out of the ends of the earth, that they may say - Surely! Falsehood, did our fathers inherit, Vanity, among whom is none that can profit:
For thou didst become A refuge to the weak. A refuge to the needy, when distress was upon him, - A shelter from the storm. A shade from the heat, When the blast of tyrants was like a storm against a wall.
I will love thee, O Yahweh my strength!
Yea he said - It is too small a thing, for being my Servant, That thou shouldest raise up the tribes of Jacob, And the preserved of Israel, shouldst restore, - So I will give thee to become a light of nations, That, my salvation, may reach as far as the end of the earth.
Good is Yahweh, as a protection in the day of distress, - and one who acknowledgeth them who seek refuge in him.
The words of my mouth, and the soft utterance of my heart, shall come with acceptance, before thee, O Yahweh, my Rock and my Redeemer!
All the ends of the earth, will remember and turn to Yahweh, Yea all the families of the nations, will bow themselves down before thee,
For he will hide me in his pavilion, in the day of calamity, - He will conceal me, in the secrecy of his tent, Within a rock, will he set me on high.
Upon God, depend my salvation and mine honour, My rock of strength, my refuge, are in God.
That thy way may be known throughout the earth, Throughout all nations, thy saving help!
Ambassadors come out of Egypt, The Ethiopian, eagerly stretcheth out his hands, unto God.

All nations whom thou hast made, Shall come in and bow down before thee, O My Lord, That they may glorify thy Name.
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High, Under the shadow of the Almighty, will tarry,
Blessed be Yahweh, my Rock, who teacheth my hands to war, my fingers to fight:
A tower of strength, is the Name of Yahweh, thereinto, runneth the righteous, and is safe.
But it shall come to pass, in the afterpart of the days, That the mountain of the house of Yahweh Shall be, set up, as the head of the mountains, And be exalted above the hills, - And all the nations, shall stream thereunto;
They shall not hurt - nor destroy, in all my holy mountain, - For filled is the land with the knowledge of Yahweh, As the waters, to the sea, form a covering.
So shall each one become As a hiding-place from the wind And a covert from the storm, - As channels of water ill a dry place, As the shadow of a massive cliff in a weary land.
Arise - shine, For thy light, hath come, - And, the glory of Yahweh, on thee, hath beamed;
So shall nations see thy righteousness, And all kings, thy glory; And thou shalt be called by a new name, which, the mouth of Yahweh, will name.
Hath a nation, changed gods, although they were No-gods? Yet my people have changed my glory for that which could not profit!
And it shall come to pass when ye shall be multiplied and become fruitful in the land, in those days, Declareth Yahweh, They shall say no more, The ark of the covenant of Yahweh, Neither shall it come up on the heart, Neither shall they remember it, Neither shall they miss it, Neither shall it be made any more.
Surely, to falsehood, pertain the hills The noisy throng on the mountains, - Surely, in Yahweh our God, is the salvation of Israel!

Therefore, say, Thus saith My Lord. Yahweh, Although I have removed them far away among the nations, And although I have dispersed them throughout the lands Yet have I become to them a sanctuary for a little while, in the lands which they have entered
But it shall come to pass, in the afterpart of the days, that the mountain of the house of Yahweh shall be, set up, as the head of the mountains, and, exalted, shall it be, above the hills, - and peoples, shall stream thereunto;
What hath a carved image, profited, though the fashioner thereof, carved it? a molten image, and a teacher of falsehood, - though the fashioner of his fashioned thing trusted therein? that men should make Dumb Nonentities!
Yahweh, My Lord, is my strength, therefore hath he made my feet like hinds, and, upon my high places, will he cause me to march along. To the chief musician, on my double harp.
Then shall many nations, join themselves, unto Yahweh, in that day, and shall become my people, - and I will make my habitation in thy midst, so shalt thou know that, Yahweh of hosts, hath sent me unto thee.
Thus, saith Yahweh of hoses, - It shall yet be that there shall come in peoples, and the inhabitants of many cities;
For, from the rising of the sun, even unto the going in thereof, great is my Name among the nations, and, in every place, incense, is offered to my Name, and a pure present, - for great is my Name among the nations, saith Yahweh of hosts.
Knowing that, Not with corruptible things, with silver or gold, have ye been redeemed from your unmeaning behaviour paternally handed down,
After these things, I saw, and 1o! a great multitude, - which, to number it! no one was able, - of every nation, and of all tribes, and peoples, and tongues; standing before the throne, and before the Lamb; arrayed in white robes, and palm-branches in their hands; -
And, the seventh messenger, sounded; and there came to be loud voices in heaven, saying - The kingdom of the world, hath become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign unto the ages of ages.
