Wherefore, since from the Almighty times are not hid, have, his knowing ones, no vision of his days?
He said unto them - It is not yours to get to know times or seasons which the Father hath put in his own authority;
For in seven days more, I, am sending rain on the earth, forty days and forty nights, - so will I wipe out all the living things which I have made, from off the face of the ground.
So Yahweh said, The outcry of Sodom and Gomorrah, because it hath become great, - And their sin, because it hath become exceeding grievous,
Thus let them who know thy Name, put confidence in thee, that thou hast not forsaken the searchers for thee, O Yahweh.
Prolong thy lovingkindness unto them who know thee, - and thy righteousness, to the upright in heart.
When I reasoned, that I might understand this, A vexation, it was in mine eyes:
Said, I, in my heart, Both the righteous and the lawless, will God judge, - for there will be a time for every pursuit, and concerning every work - there.
For, to every pursuit, there is a time and a manner, - when, the vexation of man, is great concerning it.
I again saw under the sun, that not, to the swift, was the race, nor, to the strong, the battle, nay! nor, to the wise, food, nor yet, to the intelligent, riches, nor, even to the well-informed, comeliness, - for, time and accident, happened to them all.
For, a day of Yahweh of hosts, shall be - Upon every one who is high and lofty, - And upon every one who is lifted up, And he shall be brought low;
The little one, shall become a thousand, and the small one, a mighty nation: I - Yahweh, in its own season, will hasten it.
Righteous, art thou O Yahweh, when I present my pleading unto thee, - Yet, concerning the things that are right, let me speak with thee, - Wherefore hath, the way of the lawless, prospered? Wherefore have all, utter traitors, been at ease?
A day of avenging, to avenge him of his adversaries, When the sword shall devour and be filled, and be sated with their blood, - For, a sacrifice, hath My Lord, Yahweh of hosts, In the land of the North Towards the river Euphrates.
And, he, changeth times and seasons, removeth kings, and setteth up kings, - giving wisdom to the wise, and knowledge to them who are skilled in understanding:
For, as they were in those days that were before the flood, feeding and drinking, marrying and being given in marriage, - until the day Noah entered into the ark;
For, days of avenging, are, these, for all the things written to be fulfilled.
And, this, is the age-abiding life, That they get to know thee, the only real God, and him whom thou didst send, Jesus Christ.
he made also, of one, every nation of men to dwell upon all the face of the earth, - marking out fitting opportunities, and the bounds of their dwelling place,
But, according to thy hardness, and thine impenitent heart, art treasuring up for thyself anger, in a day of anger and revelation of the righteous judgment of God, -
But, concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, - ye have, no need, that, unto you, anything be written;
Howbeit, the Spirit, expressly saith - that, in later seasons, some will revolt from the faith, giving heed unto seducing spirits, and unto teachings of demons -
Which, in its own fit times, the happy and only Potentate will shew - the King of them that reign, and Lord of them that wield lordship,
And, in greed, with forged words, will they, of you, make merchandise: for whom, the sentence from of old, is not idle, and, their destruction, doth not slumber.
While, the heavens and the earth that now are, by the same word, have been stored with fire, being kept unto the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly men.
