Bring near your contention, Saith Yahweh, - Advance your defences, Saith the King of Jacob: Let them advance them, and tell us, What shall happen, - Things known in advance - what they were, tell ye, That we may lay them to our heart and mark the after-story of them, Or, things yet to come, let us hear: Tell ye the events which shall be here-after, That we may perceive that gods, ye are, - Surely ye must do something - good or bad, That we may be amazed and behold it, at once. read more.
Lo! ye, are, of nought, And your work is a puff of breath, - An abomination, he that chooseth you!

Now, therefore, Thus, saith Yahweh - Creating thee, O Jacob, and Fashioning thee O Israel, - Do not fear, For I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name. Mine, thou art! When thou passest through the waters, with thee, I am, Or, through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee, - When thou walkest through fire, thou shall not be scorched, And, a flame, shall not kindle upon thee; For, I, - Yahweh, am, Thy God, The Holy One of Israel Ready to save thee, - I have given, as thy ransom, Egypt, Ethiopia and Seba, in thy stead. read more.
Because thou art precious in mine eyes, art honoured And, I, love thee, - And will give mankind, in thy stead, Yea, peoples, for thy life, Do not fear for, with thee, I am, - From the East, will I bring in thy seed, And, from the West, will I gather thee: I will say to the North Give up! And to the South Do not withhold! Bring in My sons from far, and My daughters from the end of the earth; Every one who is called by my Name, Whom for mine own glory, I have created - formed - yea, made! Bring forth A blind people that have, eyes, and A deaf, that have, ears. All the nations, are gathered together Yea there is an assembling of peoples, Who among them, can tell this, And things in advance, can let us hear? Let them set forth their witnesses that they may get their right, Or let them hear, and say Truth! Ye, are my witnesses Declareth Yahweh, And my Servant, whom I have chosen, - That ye may take note - and believe me, And perceive that, I, am He, Before me, was not formed a GOD, Nor after me, shall one come into being: I - I, am Yahweh, - And there is none besides me ready to save: I, have told - and will save, and make known, That there is among you no strange one; And, ye, are my witnesses, Declareth Yahweh That, I, am GOD. Even from To-day, I, am He, And none, out of my hand, can deliver, - I work and who reverseth? Thus saith Yahweh, Your Redeemer, The Holy One of Israel, - For your sakes, have I sent into Babylon, And will bring down as fugitives, all of them, - Even the Chaldeans, in the ships which cause them loud outcry. I - Yahweh, am Your Holy One, - The Creator of Israel, Your King. Thus, saith Yahweh, - Who setteth in the sea, a way, - And in the mighty waters, a path; Who bringeth forth Chariot and horse, Force and strength, Together, shall they he down They shall not arise, They are extinguished Like a wick, are they quenched! Do not keep in mind former things, - And things of old, do not consider: Behold me! doing a new thing, Now, shall it spring forth, Will ye not take note thereof? Surely I will set In the desert, a way, In a desolate land, rivers:

I have let myself be consulted by them who had not asked, I have suffered myself to be found by them who had not sought me, - I have said, Here I am! Here I am! Unto a nation that had not been called by my name, I have spread out my hands all the day, Unto a rebellious people, - Who walk In the way that is not good, After their own devices. The people who are provoking me to anger to my face continually, - Sacrificing in gardens, and Burning incense upon bricks; read more.
Who tarry among groves, And in the secret places, do lodge, Who eat the flesh of swine, And the broth of refuse things is in their vessels, - Who say - Draw near by thyself, Do not approach with me, For I am holier than thou! These, are A smoke in my nostrils, A fire, burning all the day. Lo! it is written before me, - I will not keep silence, But I have recompensed, and will recompense into their bosom: Your own iniquities, And the, iniquities of your fathers together, Saith Yahweh, Who have burned incense upon the mountains, And upon the hills, have reproached me, - Therefore will I measure their former work into their bosom. Thus, saith Yahweh - As, new wine, is found, in the cluster, And one saith, Do not destroy it, for a blessing is in it, So, will I do for the sake of ray servants, That I may not destroy the whole nation ; Therefore will I bring forth Out of Jacob, a seed, and Out of Judah, an inheritor of my mountains, That my chosen ones may inherit it, And, my servants, dwell there; Then shall, Sharon, become, a fold for flocks, And the vale of Achor for the lying down of herds, - For my people who have sought me. But, ye are they - Who forsake Yahweh Who forget my holy mountain - Who prepare, for Fortune, a table and Who fill for Destiny, mixed wine; Therefore will I destine you to the sword, And, ye all, to the slaughter, shall bow down. Because I called and ye answered not, I spake, and ye hearkened not, - But did that which was wicked in mine eyes, And o that wherein I delighted not, ye made choice, Therefore, Thus, saith My Lord, Yahweh, - Lo! my servants, shall eat but, ye, shall be famished, Lo! my servants, shall drink but, ye shall be thirsty, - Lo! my servants, shall rejoice but ye, shall turn pale; Lo! my servants, shall shout in triumph for mirth of heart But, ye, shall make outcry, for pain of heart, And for a breaking of spirit, shall ye howl. So shall ye leave your name for an oath, to my chosen ones, - So then My Lord Yahweh, will slay thee, - And his servants, will he, call by another name: So that he who blesseth himself in the earth, Will bless himself in the God of faithfulness, And he who sweareth in the earth Will swear by the God of faithfulness - Because the former troubles have been forgotten, and Because they are hid from mine eyes.

He hath said, If a man send away his wife, and she go from him and become another man's, will he return unto her, again? would not that land be, utterly defiled? And, thou, hast been unchaste with many neighbours, and yet thinkest to return unto me! Declareth Yahweh. Lift up thine eyes unto the bare heights and see - where thou hast not been unchastely embraced! beside the ways, hast thou sat to them, like the Arabian m the desert, - and hast defiled the land with thine unchastities, and with thy wickedness. Therefore have been withholden the showers, And, the latter rain, hath not come, - Yet the forehead of an unchaste woman, hast thou, Thou hast refused to be ashamed. read more.
Hast thou not from this time, cried unto me, My father! the friend of my youth, art, thou? Will he maintain his anger to times age-abiding? Will he keep it perpetually? Lo! thou hast spoken thus but hast done wicked things and had thy way! And Yahweh said unto me, in the days of Josiah the king, Hast thou seen what apostate Israel, did? She used to go upon every high mountain and beneath every green tree, and commit unchastity there. And I said, after she had been doing all these things, Unto me, shall thou return? and she returned not, - and her treacherous sister Judah saw it! Though she saw that for all this, apostate Israel having committed adultery, I had sent her away, and had given a scroll of divorcement unto her, yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but, she also, went and committed unchastity. Yea though it had come to pass that through the levity of her unchastity, she had defiled the land, - and committed adultery with Stone and with Tree, yet, in spite of all this, her treacherous sister Judah returned not unto me, with all her heart, - but, falsely, Declareth Yahweh. Then said Yahweh unto me, - Apostate Israel, hath justified herself, - more than treacherous Judah. Go, and proclaim these words, towards the North and say - Return! thou apostate - Israel, Urgeth Yahweh, I will not lower my face against you, - for full of lovingkindness, I am, Declareth Yahweh, I will not maintain mine anger unto times age-abiding. Only, acknowledge thine iniquity, that against Yahweh thy God, hast thou transgressed, - and hast gone hither and thither unto foreigners under every green tree, and unto my voice, ye have not hearkened Declareth Yahweh. Return, ye apostate sons, Urgeth Yahweh, for, I, am become your husband, - therefore will I take you one of a city, and two of a family, and will bring you to Zion; and will give you shepherds according to mine own heart, - who will feed you with knowledge and discretion.

Can ye then say - The way of My Lord will not be equal? Hear I pray you O house of Israel, Will my way, not be equal? Will not your ways be unequal? When a righteous man shall turn away from his righteousness and do that which is perverse and die because of those things In his own perversity which he hath done, shall he die. But when a lawless man turneth away from his lawlessness which he hath done, And hath done justice and righteousness He, shall save his own soul, alive: read more.
When he considered, then he turned away from all his transgressions which he had committed, He shall surely live. He shall not die.

Therefore, Every man according to his own ways, will I judge you O house of Israel, Declareth My Lord Yahweh, Return ye - and make good your return - from all your transgressions, That they become not unto you a stumbling_ block of iniquity. Cast off from you all your transgressions which ye have committed against me, And make you a new heart; And a new spirit,- For why should ye die, O house of Israel? For I cannot take delight in the death of him that dieth, Declareth My Lord Yahweh, Make good your return then and, live!

Thou, therefore, Son of man, Say unto the house of Israel, Thus, have ye spoken saying: When our transgressions and our sins are upon us, - and for them, we are melting away How then can we live? Say unto them, As I live, Declareth My Lord Yahweh, Surely, I can take no pleasure in the death of the lawless man, But that the lawless man turn from his way, and live,- Turn ye, turn ye, from your wicked ways, For wherefore should ye die. O house of Israel? Thou, therefore, Son of man Say unto the sons of thy people - The righteousness of the righteous man, shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression, And as for the lawlessness of the lawless man, He shall not stumble thereby, in the day of his return from his lawlessness,- Nor shall the righteous man be able to live thereby, in the day of his sin. read more.
When I say of the righteous man He shall surely live but he hath trusted in his righteousness and committed perversity None of his righteous deeds shall be mentioned, But by his perversity which he hath committed - thereby, shall he die. And when I say to the lawless man Thou shalt surely die, but he shall turn from his sin, and do justice and righteousness: The debt-pledge, the lawless man shall restore Plunder, shall pay back, In the statutes of life, hath walked, so as not to commit perversity. He shall surely live he shall not die: - None of his sins which he hath committed shall be called to mind against him, - Justice and righteousness, hath he done He shall surely live. And can the sons of thy people say, The way of The Lord will not be equal? Nay! but as for them, their way will not be equal! When the righteous man shall turn from his righteousness and commit perversity Then shall he die for them; But when the lawless man shall turn from his lawlessness, and do justice and righteousness Upon them, shall he live. And can ye then say, The way of The Lord will not be equal? Every man - according to his own ways so will I judge you O house of Israel?

Wherewith, shall I come before Yahweh? bow myself to God on high? Shall I come before him with ascending-sacrifice? with calves of a year old? Will Yahweh, be pleased, with thousands of rams? with myriads of torrents of oil? Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression? the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? He hath told thee, O son of earth, what is good, - what then is, Yahweh, seeking of thee, but, to do justice, to delight in lovingkindness, and humbly to walk with thy God? The voice of Yahweh, to the city, crieth out, With safety for him who regardeth his name, - Hear ye the rod, and who hath appointed it.

From the days of your fathers, have ye departed from my statutes, and not observed them, Return ye unto me, that I may return unto you, saith Yahweh of hosts. And yet ye say, Wherein shall we return? Will, a son of earth, defraud, God? Nevertheless, ye, have been defrauding me, and yet ye say, Wherein have we defrauded thee? In the tithe and the offering. With a curse, have ye been cursing, and yet, me, have ye been defrauding, - the whole nation. read more.
Bring ye all the tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house, Yea, I pray you, put me to the proof hereby, saith Yahweh of hosts, whether I will not open to you the sluices of the heavens, and pour out for you blessing, until there be no room. Then will I rebuke, for you, the devourer that he spoil not, for you, the fruit of the ground, - neither shall the vine in the field, be barren to you, saith Yahweh of hosts. So shall all the nations, pronounce you happy, - for, ye, shall become, a land of delight, saith Yahweh of hosts.

Ye have said, Vain is it to serve God, - and, What profit when we have kept his charge, or when we have walked gloomily before Yahweh of hosts? Now, therefore, we are pronouncing happy - the proud, - and, the doers of lawlessness have, even been built up, and, they who have put God to the proof, have even been delivered.


But, he, said unto him - A certain man, was making a great supper, and invited many; and he sent out his servant, at the hour of the supper, to say unto the invited - Be coming! because, even now, is it, ready. And they all began, one after another to excuse themselves. The first, said unto him - A field, have I bought, and have need to go out and see it: I request thee, hold me excused. read more.
And, another, said - Five yoke of oxen, have I bought, and am going my way to prove them; I request thee, hold me excused. And, another, said - A wife, have I married, and, for this cause, I cannot come! And, going near, the servant reported unto his lord these things. Then, provoked to anger, the master of the house said unto his servant - Go out quickly, into the broadways and streets of the city, - and, the destitute, and tried, and blind, and lame, bring thou in here. And the servant said - Lord! what thou didst order, hath been done; and, yet, there is, room. And the lord said unto the servant - Go out among the highways and fences, and compel them to come in; that my house may be filled. For, I say unto you - Not one of those men who had been invited, shall taste of my supper.

He said, therefore - A certain man, of noble birth, went into a country far away, to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. And, calling ten servants of his own, he gave unto them ten minas, and said unto them - Do business, till I come. But, his citizens, hated him, and sent off an embassy after him, saying - We desire not, this, man, to be made king over us! read more.
And it came to pass, when he returned, having received the kingdom, that he bade be called unto him these servants, to whom he had given the silver, that he might take note, what business they had done. And the first came near, saying - Lord! thy mina, hath made, ten minas. And he said to him - Well done! good servant. Because, in a very small thing, thou hast been, faithful, have thou authority over, ten cities. And the second came, saying - Thy mina, lord, hath made five minas. And he said, to him also, And, thou, be over five cities. And, the other, came, saying - Lord, lo! thy mina, which I kept lying by in a napkin; For I was afraid of thee, because, a harsh man, thou art, - Thou takest up, what thou layedst not down, and reapest, what thou sowedst not! He saith to him - Out of thy mouth, do I judge thee, O wicked servant! Thou knewest that, I, a harsh man, am, - taking up, what I laid not down, and reaping, what I did not sow; Wherefore, then, didst thou not place my silver upon a money-changer'stable, and, I, when I came, with interest might have exacted it? And, unto the by-standers, he said - Take, from him, the mina, and give unto him that hath, the ten minas; - And they said to him, Lord! he hath ten minas; - I tell you - Unto everyone that hath, shall be given, whereas, from him that hath not, even what he hath, shall be taken away. But, these mine enemies who desired not that I should be made king over them, bring ye here, and slay them outright before me.

Then, began he to upbraid the cities, in which had been done his noblest mighty works; because they repented not: - Alas for thee, Chorazin! Alas for thee, Bethsaida! Because, if, in Tyre and Zidon, had been done the works of power, which were done in you, of old, in sackcloth and ashes, had they repented. Moreover, I say unto you, For Tyre and Zidon, more tolerable, will it be, in the day of judgment, than for you. read more.
And, thou, Capernaum! Unto heaven, shalt thou be uplifted? Unto hades, thou shall be brought down; because, if, in Sodom, had been done the works of power, which were done in thee, it would, in that case, have remained until this day. Moreover, I say unto you - For the land of Sodom, more tolerable, will it be in a day of judgment, than, for thee.

With their flocks and with their herds, will they go to seek Yahweh, but shall not find him; he hath withdrawn himself from them.

Because I called, and ye refused, I stretched out my hand, and no one regarded; But ye dismissed all my counsel, and, to my rebuke, would not yield, I also, at your calamity, will laugh, I will mock, when cometh your dread; read more.
When cometh as a crashing your dread, and, your calamity, as a storm-wind, overtaketh, when there come upon you, distress and anguish. Then, will they call me, but I will not answer, they will seek me diligently, but shall not find me. Because they hated knowledge, and, the reverence of Yahweh, did not choose; Consented not to my counsel, disdained all my rebuke, Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and, with their own counsels, be filled. For, the turning away of the simple, will slay them, - and, the carelessness of dullards, will destroy them. Whereas, he that hearkeneth unto me, shall dwell safely, and be at rest, without dread of misfortune.
