In the year of the death of king Uzziah -- I see the Lord, sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and His train is filling the temple. Seraphs are standing above it: six wings hath each one; with two each covereth its face, and with two each covereth its feet, and with two each flieth. And this one hath called unto that, and hath said: 'Holy, Holy, Holy, is Jehovah of Hosts, The fulness of all the earth is His glory.'



He is Jehovah our God, In all the earth are His judgments.

Blessed is Jehovah God, God of Israel, He alone is doing wonders, And blessed is the Name of His honour to the age, And the whole earth is filled with His honour. Amen, and amen!

He is Jehovah our God, In all the earth are His judgments.

Do not these -- all of them -- against him a simile taken up, And a moral of acute sayings for him, And say, Woe to him who is multiplying what is not his? Till when also is he multiplying to himself heavy pledges? Do not thy usurers instantly rise up, And those shaking thee awake up, And thou hast been for a spoil to them? Because thou hast spoiled many nations, Spoil thee do all the remnant of the peoples, Because of man's blood, and of violence to the land, To the city, and to all dwelling in it. read more.
Woe to him who is gaining evil gain for his house, To set on high his nest, To be delivered from the hand of evil, Thou hast counselled a shameful thing to thy house, To cut off many peoples, and sinful is thy soul. For a stone from the wall doth cry out, And a holdfast from the wood answereth it. Woe to him who is building a city by blood, And establishing a city by iniquity. Lo, is it not from Jehovah of Hosts And peoples are fatigued for fire, And nations for vanity are weary? For full is the earth of the knowledge of the honour of Jehovah, As waters cover the bottom of a sea. Woe to him who is giving drink to his neighbour, Pouring out thy bottle, and also making drunk, In order to look on their nakedness. Thou hast been filled -- shame without honour, Drink thou also, and be uncircumcised, Turn round unto thee doth the cup of the right hand of Jehovah, And shameful spewing is on thine honour.

My son, if sinners entice thee be not willing. If they say, 'Come with us, we lay wait for blood, We watch secretly for the innocent without cause, We swallow them as Sheol -- alive, And whole -- as those going down to the pit, read more.
Every precious substance we find, We fill our houses with spoil, Thy lot thou dost cast among us, One purse is -- to all of us.' My son! go not in the way with them, Withhold thy foot from their path, For their feet to evil do run, And they haste to shed blood. Surely in vain is the net spread out before the eyes of any bird. And they for their own blood lay wait, They watch secretly for their own lives. So are the paths of every gainer of dishonest gain, The life of its owners it taketh.

Lo, all the souls are Mine, As the soul of the father, So also the soul of the son -- they are Mine, The soul that is sinning -- it doth die. And a man, when he is righteous, And hath done judgment and righteousness, On the mountains he hath not eaten, And his eyes he hath not lifted up Unto idols of the house of Israel, And the wife of his neighbour defiled not, And to a separated woman cometh not near, A man -- he doth not oppress, His pledge to the debtor he doth return, Plunder he doth not take away, His bread to the hungry he doth give, And the naked doth cover with a garment, In usury he doth not give, and increase taketh not, From perversity he turneth back his hand, True judgment he doth between man and man. In My statutes he doth walk, And My judgments he hath kept -- to deal truly, Righteous is he, he surely liveth, An affirmation of the Lord Jehovah. And -- he hath begotten a son, A burglar -- a shedder of blood, And he hath made a brother of one of these, And he all those hath not done, For even on the mountains he hath eaten, And the wife of his neighbour he hath defiled, The afflicted and needy he hath oppressed, Plunder he hath taken violently away, A pledge he doth not return, And unto the idols he hath lifted up his eyes, Abomination he hath done! In usury he hath given, and increase taken, And he liveth: he doth not live, All these abominations he hath done, He doth surely die, his blood is on him.
