It is not, however, as though the word of God had failed; for, not all they who are of Israel, the same are Israel. Neither, because they are seed of Abraham, are all children, - but, In Isaac, shall there be called unto thee a seed. That is - not the children of the flesh, the same are children of God; but, the children of the promise, are reckoned as a seed.

God hath not cast off his people, whom he fore approved. Or know ye not, in the account of Elijah what the scripture saith, when he intercedeth with God against Israel? Lord! Thy prophets, have they slain, thine altars, have they overthrown, and, I, am left alone, and they are seeking my life! But what saith unto him the response? I have left for myself seven thousand men, who, indeed, have not bowed a knee unto Baal. read more.
Thus, then, in the present season also, a remnant, by way of an election of favour, hath come into being. If, however, by favour, no longer of works; else, favour, no longer proveth to be favour! What then? That which Israel seeketh after, the same, it hath not obtained: - the election, however, have obtained it, and, the rest, have been hardened; -


Thus, then, in the present season also, a remnant, by way of an election of favour, hath come into being.


And the Apostles and Elders were gathered together to see about this matter. And, when much discussion had arisen, Peter standing up, said unto them - Brethren! Ye yourselves, well know that, in days long past, amongst you, God chose that, through my mouth, the nations should hear the word of the glad tidings, and believe. And, the heart-observing God, bare witness, - unto them, giving the Holy Spirit, just as, even unto us; read more.
and made no distinction at all betwixt us and them, by their faith, purifying their hearts. Now, therefore, why are ye proving God, that ye should put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which, neither our fathers, nor we, have been able to bear. But, through the favour of the Lord Jesus, we believe we shall be saved, in like manner as, even they.

and, not being, agreed, among themselves, they began to leave, - Paul having said one thing - Well, did, the Holy Spirit, speak through Isaiah the prophet, unto your fathers, saying - Go thy way unto this people, and say - Ye shall, surely hear, and yet will in nowise understand. And, surely see, and yet will in nowise perceive; For the heart of this people, hath become dense, and, with their ears, heavily, have they heard, and, their eyes, have they closed, - lest once they should see with their eyes, and, with their ears, should hear, and, with their hearts, should understand, and return, - when I would certainly heal them. read more.
Be it, known unto you, therefore, that, unto the nations, hath been sent forth this salvation of God: they, will also hear.

What, then, shall we say? That, they of the nations, who were not in pursuit of righteousness, have laid hold of righteousness, - a righteousness, however, which is by faith; Whereas, Israel, though in pursuit of a law of righteousness, unto a law, have not attained. Wherefore? Because, not by faith but as by works, have they sought it : they have stumbled at the stone of stumbling, read more.
Even as it is written - Lo! I lay in Zion, a stone to strike against and a rock to stumble over, and, he that resteth faith thereupon, shall not be put to shame.

I say, then - Hath God cast off his people? Far be it! For, I also, am an Israelite, - of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin: God hath not cast off his people, whom he fore approved. Or know ye not, in the account of Elijah what the scripture saith, when he intercedeth with God against Israel? Lord! Thy prophets, have they slain, thine altars, have they overthrown, and, I, am left alone, and they are seeking my life! read more.
But what saith unto him the response? I have left for myself seven thousand men, who, indeed, have not bowed a knee unto Baal. Thus, then, in the present season also, a remnant, by way of an election of favour, hath come into being. If, however, by favour, no longer of works; else, favour, no longer proveth to be favour! What then? That which Israel seeketh after, the same, it hath not obtained: - the election, however, have obtained it, and, the rest, have been hardened; - Even as it is written - God hath given unto them a spirit of stupor, - eyes not to see, and ears not to hear, - until this very day; And, David, saith - Let their table be turned into a snare, and into gin, and into a trap, and into a recompense unto them, Darkened be their eyes, not to see, and, their back, do thou continually bow down. I say then - Did they stumble in order that they might fall? Far be it! But, by their fall, salvation hath come unto the nations, to the end of provoking them to jealousy. If, moreover, their fail, is the riches of a world, and their loss, the riches of nations, how much rather their fullness? Unto you, however, am I speaking, - you of the nations; inasmuch, indeed, then, as, I, am an apostle to the nations, my ministry, I glorify, If by any means I may provoke to jealousy my own flesh, and save some from among them; - For, if, the casting away of them, hath become the reconciling of a world, what shall, the taking of them in addition, be, but life from among the dead? If, moreover, the first fruit is holy, the lump shall be also; and, if the root is holy, the branches shall be also. If, however, some of the branches, have been broken out, and, thou, being a wild olive hast been grafted in among them, and hast become a joint partaker of the root of the fatness of the olive, Be not boasting over the branches! Howbeit, if thou boast, it is not, thou, that bearest the root, but the root, thee! Thou wilt say, then - Branches were broken out in order that, I, might he grafted in. Well: by their want of faith, they have been broken out, - and, thou, by thy faith, dost stand! - Regard not lofty things, but be afraid; For, if, God, hath not spared, the natural branches, neither, thee, will he spare! See, then, the kindness and the severity of God: upon them who have fallen, severity, - but, upon thee, the kindness of God, if thou abide still in the kindness, - otherwise, thou also, shalt he cut out; Whereas, they also, unless they abide still in their want of faith, shall be grafted in, for God is, able, again to engraft them! For, if, thou, out of the naturally wild olive was cut out, and, beyond nature, hast been engrafted into the good olive, how much rather, shall these, the natural branches be engrafted into their own olive tree? For I wish not, ye should be ignorant, brethren, of this sacred secret, lest within yourselves ye be presumptuous, that, a hardening in part, hath befallen Israel, until, the full measure of the nations, shall come in; And, so, all Israel shall be saved: even as it is written - There shall have come out of Zion the Deliverer, - He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob; And, this, for them, is the covenant from me, as soon as I take away their sins. As touching the joyful-message, indeed, they are enemies for your sake, but, as touching the election, beloved for their father's sake; For, not to be regretted, are the gifts and the calling of God: - For, just as, ye, at one time had not yielded unto God, and yet now have received mercy by their refusal to yield, So, these also, have now refused to yield, by your own mercy, in order that, themselves also, should now become objects of mercy; For God hath shut up all together, in a refusal to yield, in order that, upon all, he may bestow mercy.

Even as Abraham - believed in God, and it was reckoned unto him as righteousness. Be taking note, therefore - that, they who are of faith, the same, are, sons, of Abraham; And, the scripture, foreseeing, that, by faith, God would declare the nations righteous, fore-announced the good news unto Abraham, saying, All the nations shall be blessed in thee. read more.
So then, they who are of faith, are blessed with believing Abraham; For, as many as are of works of law, are, under a curse, - for it is written - Accursed, is everyone that continueth not in all things that are written in the book of the law to do them. Moreover, that, in law, no one, is declared righteous with God, is evident, - because, The righteous one, by faith, shall live; And, the law, is not of faith, but - he that hath done them, shall live in them, Christ, hath redeemed, us, out of the curse of the law, having become, in our behalf, a curse; - because it is written - Cursed, is every one that hangeth upon a tree; - In order that, unto the nations, the blessing of Abraham, might come about in Jesus Christ, - in order that, the promise of the Spirit, we might receive through means of the faith.


Thus, then, in the present season also, a remnant, by way of an election of favour, hath come into being.


Yet will I leave remaining in Israel, seven thousand, - all knees which have not bowed to Baal, and all mouths which have not kissed to him.

And it shall come to pass, whosoever, shall call on the name of Yahweh, shall be delivered, - For in Mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, shall be a delivered remnant, just as Yahweh hath said, and among the survivors, whom Yahweh doth call.

The remnant of Israel - will not do perversity, nor speak falsehood, neither shall there be found in their mouth a tongue of deceit, - surely, they, shall feed and lie down, with none to make them afraid.

Since the days of our fathers, we, have been in great guilt, until this day, - and, for our iniquities, have we been given up - we, our kings, our priests, - into the hand of the kings of the lands, by sword and by captivity and by spoiling and by a turning pale of face, as at this day. And, now, for a very little moment, hath come favour from Yahweh our God, in leaving to us a remnant to escape, and in giving to us a nail in his holy place, - that our God may enlighten our eyes, and give us a little reviving in our bondage. For, bondmen, we are, but, in our bondage, hath our God not forsaken us, - but extended unto us lovingkindness before the kings of Persia, to give us a reviving, to set up on high the house of our God, to raise up the desolations thereof, and to give us a wall in Judah and in Jerusalem.

that Hanani one of my brethren came, he and certain men out of Judah, - so I asked them concerning the Jews who had escaped, who were left of the captivity, and concerning Jerusalem. And they said unto me, The remnant who are left of the captivity, there in the province, are in great misfortune and reproach, the wall of Jerusalem, is broken down, and, the gates thereof, are burned with fire.

And it shall come to pass in that day, That the remnant of Israel. And the escaped of the house of Jacob Shall, no more again, lean upon him that smote them, - But shall lean upon Yahweh the Holy One of Israel, in truth. A remnant, shall return, The remnant of Jacob, - unto the mighty GOD; For though thy people, O Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, A mere remnant, shall return of them, - A full end decreed, bringeth in, justice, like a flood; read more.
For, a full end and that a decreed one, is My Lord Yahweh of hosts executing in the midst of all the earth.

Alas for the shepherds who are destroying and scattering the sheep of my pasture Declareth Yahweh. Therefore, Thus, saith Yahweh God of Israel, Concerning the shepherds who are tending my people, - Ye have scattered my flock and have driven them away, and Nave not visited them, - Behold me! visiting upon you the wickedness of your doings Declareth Yahweh. myself, therefore will gather the remnant of my flock, out of all the lands whither I have driven them, - And will bring them back unto their own fold, And they shall be fruitful and multiply; read more.
And I will raise up over them shepherds who will tend them, - So shall they not be afraid any more, nor be dismayed nor be missing, Declareth Yahweh.

For, thus, saith Yahweh - Shout ye for Jacob with gladness, Make shrill thy voice, as the head of the nations, - Publish ye praise ye and say, Save thou O Yahweh thy people, the remnant of Israel. Behold me bringing them in out of the land of the North, And I will gather them out of the remote parts of the earth, Among them, the blind and the lame The woman with child and she that giveth birth, together, - A great convocation, shall return hither: With weeping, shall they come in, And with supplications, will I lead them, I will bring them unto rivers of waters By a smooth way, wherein they shall not stumble, - For I have become, to Israel, a father, And as for Ephraim, my firstborn, is he!

And, the remnant of Jacob, shall be, in the midst of many peoples, as dew from Yahweh, as myriad drops on plants, - which tarrieth not for man, nor waiteth for the sons of Adam. And, the remnant of Jacob, shall be among the nations, in the midst of many peoples, as a lion among the beasts of the jungle, as a young lion among flocks of sheep, - who, if he passeth by, both treadeth down - and teareth in pieces, and none can deliver. Let thy hand be uplifted against thine adversaries, - and, all thine enemies, shall be cut off.

Isaiah, moreover, exclaimeth over Israel - Though the number of the sons of Israel be as the sand of the sea, the remnant, shall be saved;

I say, then - Hath God cast off his people? Far be it! For, I also, am an Israelite, - of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin: God hath not cast off his people, whom he fore approved. Or know ye not, in the account of Elijah what the scripture saith, when he intercedeth with God against Israel? Lord! Thy prophets, have they slain, thine altars, have they overthrown, and, I, am left alone, and they are seeking my life! read more.
But what saith unto him the response? I have left for myself seven thousand men, who, indeed, have not bowed a knee unto Baal. Thus, then, in the present season also, a remnant, by way of an election of favour, hath come into being.

Even as it is written - Lo! I lay in Zion, a stone to strike against and a rock to stumble over, and, he that resteth faith thereupon, shall not be put to shame.

Seeing that both, Jews for signs, do ask, and, Greeks for wisdom, do seek, Whereas, we, proclaim a Christ who hath been crucified, - unto Jews, indeed, an occasion of stumbling, and, unto Gentiles, foolishness;

Yahweh of hosts, him, shall ye hallow, - And let, him, be your fear, and let, him inspire you with awe; So shall he become a hallowed asylum, - But a stone to strike against, and a rock to stumble over unto both houses of Israel A trap and a snare to the dweller in Jerusalem; And many, shall stumble among them, - and fall and be torn, and snared, and captured.

I say, then - Hath God cast off his people? Far be it! For, I also, am an Israelite, - of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin: God hath not cast off his people, whom he fore approved.

Well: by their want of faith, they have been broken out, - and, thou, by thy faith, dost stand! - Regard not lofty things, but be afraid; For, if, God, hath not spared, the natural branches, neither, thee, will he spare! See, then, the kindness and the severity of God: upon them who have fallen, severity, - but, upon thee, the kindness of God, if thou abide still in the kindness, - otherwise, thou also, shalt he cut out; Whereas, they also, unless they abide still in their want of faith, shall be grafted in, for God is, able, again to engraft them! For, if, thou, out of the naturally wild olive was cut out, and, beyond nature, hast been engrafted into the good olive, how much rather, shall these, the natural branches be engrafted into their own olive tree? For I wish not, ye should be ignorant, brethren, of this sacred secret, lest within yourselves ye be presumptuous, that, a hardening in part, hath befallen Israel, until, the full measure of the nations, shall come in; And, so, all Israel shall be saved: even as it is written - There shall have come out of Zion the Deliverer, - He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob; And, this, for them, is the covenant from me, as soon as I take away their sins. As touching the joyful-message, indeed, they are enemies for your sake, but, as touching the election, beloved for their father's sake; For, not to be regretted, are the gifts and the calling of God: - For, just as, ye, at one time had not yielded unto God, and yet now have received mercy by their refusal to yield, So, these also, have now refused to yield, by your own mercy, in order that, themselves also, should now become objects of mercy; For God hath shut up all together, in a refusal to yield, in order that, upon all, he may bestow mercy.

Surely, to falsehood, pertain the hills The noisy throng on the mountains, - Surely, in Yahweh our God, is the salvation of Israel!

Oh that, out of Zion, were granted the salvation of Israel! When Yahweh bringeth back the captives of his people, Jacob, shall exult, Israel, be glad.

Oh that, out of Zion, were granted the salvations of Israel! When God bringeth back the captives of his people, Jacob, shall exult, Israel, shall be glad.


Yet will I leave remaining in Israel, seven thousand, - all knees which have not bowed to Baal, and all mouths which have not kissed to him.

I say, then - Hath God cast off his people? Far be it! For, I also, am an Israelite, - of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin:

Thus, then, in the present season also, a remnant, by way of an election of favour, hath come into being.

Yet still shall there be in it a tenth, Though it again be consumed, - Like an oak and like a terebinth Which when felled, have a stock in them, A holy seed, shall be the stock thereof. Courage.

It is not, however, as though the word of God had failed; for, not all they who are of Israel, the same are Israel.


For the sake of discipline, persevere! As towards sons, God, beareth himself, towards you; for who is a son whom a father doth not discipline? If however ye are without discipline, whereof, all, have received a share, then, are ye, bastards, and, not sons. Furthermore, indeed, the fathers of our flesh, we used to have, as administrators of discipline, and we used to pay deference: shall we not, much rather, submit ourselves to the Father of our spirits and, live? read more.
For, they, indeed, for a few days, according to that which seemed good to them, were administering discipline; but, he, unto that which is profitable, with view to our partaking of his holiness:

For this cause, I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus in behalf of you the nations: - If at least ye have heard of the administration of the favour of God which hath been given unto me for you, How that, by way of revelation, was made known unto me the sacred secret, - even as I before wrote in brief, - read more.
Respecting which ye can, by reading, perceive my discernment in the sacred secret of the Christ, - Which, in other generations, had not been made known unto the sons of men, as it hath, now, been revealed by his holy apostles and prophets, in Spirit; - That they who are of the nations should be joint heirs, and a joint body, and joint partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through means of the glad-message, -

Wherefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry, - As, to prudent men, I speak, - judge, ye, what I say: - The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not, a sharing together of the blood of the Christ? The loaf which we break, is it not, a sharing together of the body of the Christ? read more.
Because, one loaf, one body, we, the many, are, for we, all, of the one loaf, partake. Be looking at Israel after the flesh: - are not, they who eat the sacrifices, joint partakers with the altar?

For this cause, we also, from the day when we heard of you , cease not, in your behalf, praying and asking - that ye may be filled unto the personal knowledge of his will, in all spiritual wisdom and discernment, So as to walk worthily of the Lord, unto all pleasing, in every good work, bearing fruit, and growing in the personal knowledge of God, With all power, being empowered, according to the grasp of his glory, unto all endurance and long-suffering with joy, read more.
Giving thanks unto the Father that hath made you sufficient for your share in the inheritance of the saints in the light, Who hath rescued us out of the authority of the darkness, and translated us into the kingdom of the Son of his love; In whom, we have our redemption - the remission of our sins, -

Let, as many as are servants under a yoke, be counting, their own masters, worthy, of all honour, lest, the name of God and the teaching, be defamed. They, however, that have believing masters, let them not despise them, because they are, brethren but, the more, be doing them service, because, believing and beloved, are they who, from the good workmanship, receive advantage. These things, be teaching, and exhorting: -

Beloved! be not held in surprise by the burning among you, which, for putting you to the proof, is befalling you, as though a, surprising, thing were happening unto you; But, in so far as ye are taking fellowship in the Christ's sufferings, rejoice! in order that, in the revealing of his glory also, ye may rejoice with exultation: If ye are being reproached in the name of Christ, happy are ye ! Because, the Spirit, of the glory, and the Spirit of God, unto you is bringing rest.

Simon Peter, servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, unto them who have obtained, equally precious, faith, with us, in the righteousness of our God, and Saviour Jesus Christ, Favour unto you, and peace, be multiplied, in the personal knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; - As, all things, suited for life and godliness his divine power, unto us, hath given, through the personal knowledge of him that hath called us through glory and excellence, - read more.
Through which, his precious, and very great, promises, have, unto us, been given, in order that, through these, ye might become sharers in a divine nature - escaping the corruption that is in the world by coveting.


And the Apostles and Elders were gathered together to see about this matter. And, when much discussion had arisen, Peter standing up, said unto them - Brethren! Ye yourselves, well know that, in days long past, amongst you, God chose that, through my mouth, the nations should hear the word of the glad tidings, and believe. And, the heart-observing God, bare witness, - unto them, giving the Holy Spirit, just as, even unto us; read more.
and made no distinction at all betwixt us and them, by their faith, purifying their hearts. Now, therefore, why are ye proving God, that ye should put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which, neither our fathers, nor we, have been able to bear. But, through the favour of the Lord Jesus, we believe we shall be saved, in like manner as, even they.

and, not being, agreed, among themselves, they began to leave, - Paul having said one thing - Well, did, the Holy Spirit, speak through Isaiah the prophet, unto your fathers, saying - Go thy way unto this people, and say - Ye shall, surely hear, and yet will in nowise understand. And, surely see, and yet will in nowise perceive; For the heart of this people, hath become dense, and, with their ears, heavily, have they heard, and, their eyes, have they closed, - lest once they should see with their eyes, and, with their ears, should hear, and, with their hearts, should understand, and return, - when I would certainly heal them. read more.
Be it, known unto you, therefore, that, unto the nations, hath been sent forth this salvation of God: they, will also hear.

What, then, shall we say? That, they of the nations, who were not in pursuit of righteousness, have laid hold of righteousness, - a righteousness, however, which is by faith; Whereas, Israel, though in pursuit of a law of righteousness, unto a law, have not attained. Wherefore? Because, not by faith but as by works, have they sought it : they have stumbled at the stone of stumbling, read more.
Even as it is written - Lo! I lay in Zion, a stone to strike against and a rock to stumble over, and, he that resteth faith thereupon, shall not be put to shame.

If, however, some of the branches, have been broken out, and, thou, being a wild olive hast been grafted in among them, and hast become a joint partaker of the root of the fatness of the olive, Be not boasting over the branches! Howbeit, if thou boast, it is not, thou, that bearest the root, but the root, thee! Thou wilt say, then - Branches were broken out in order that, I, might he grafted in. Well: by their want of faith, they have been broken out, - and, thou, by thy faith, dost stand! - Regard not lofty things, but be afraid; For, if, God, hath not spared, the natural branches, neither, thee, will he spare! See, then, the kindness and the severity of God: upon them who have fallen, severity, - but, upon thee, the kindness of God, if thou abide still in the kindness, - otherwise, thou also, shalt he cut out; Whereas, they also, unless they abide still in their want of faith, shall be grafted in, for God is, able, again to engraft them! For, if, thou, out of the naturally wild olive was cut out, and, beyond nature, hast been engrafted into the good olive, how much rather, shall these, the natural branches be engrafted into their own olive tree? For I wish not, ye should be ignorant, brethren, of this sacred secret, lest within yourselves ye be presumptuous, that, a hardening in part, hath befallen Israel, until, the full measure of the nations, shall come in; And, so, all Israel shall be saved: even as it is written - There shall have come out of Zion the Deliverer, - He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob; And, this, for them, is the covenant from me, as soon as I take away their sins. As touching the joyful-message, indeed, they are enemies for your sake, but, as touching the election, beloved for their father's sake; For, not to be regretted, are the gifts and the calling of God: - For, just as, ye, at one time had not yielded unto God, and yet now have received mercy by their refusal to yield, So, these also, have now refused to yield, by your own mercy, in order that, themselves also, should now become objects of mercy; For God hath shut up all together, in a refusal to yield, in order that, upon all, he may bestow mercy.

Even as Abraham - believed in God, and it was reckoned unto him as righteousness. Be taking note, therefore - that, they who are of faith, the same, are, sons, of Abraham; And, the scripture, foreseeing, that, by faith, God would declare the nations righteous, fore-announced the good news unto Abraham, saying, All the nations shall be blessed in thee. read more.
So then, they who are of faith, are blessed with believing Abraham; For, as many as are of works of law, are, under a curse, - for it is written - Accursed, is everyone that continueth not in all things that are written in the book of the law to do them. Moreover, that, in law, no one, is declared righteous with God, is evident, - because, The righteous one, by faith, shall live; And, the law, is not of faith, but - he that hath done them, shall live in them, Christ, hath redeemed, us, out of the curse of the law, having become, in our behalf, a curse; - because it is written - Cursed, is every one that hangeth upon a tree; - In order that, unto the nations, the blessing of Abraham, might come about in Jesus Christ, - in order that, the promise of the Spirit, we might receive through means of the faith.


I say, then - Hath God cast off his people? Far be it! For, I also, am an Israelite, - of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin: God hath not cast off his people, whom he fore approved. Or know ye not, in the account of Elijah what the scripture saith, when he intercedeth with God against Israel? Lord! Thy prophets, have they slain, thine altars, have they overthrown, and, I, am left alone, and they are seeking my life! read more.
But what saith unto him the response? I have left for myself seven thousand men, who, indeed, have not bowed a knee unto Baal. Thus, then, in the present season also, a remnant, by way of an election of favour, hath come into being. If, however, by favour, no longer of works; else, favour, no longer proveth to be favour! What then? That which Israel seeketh after, the same, it hath not obtained: - the election, however, have obtained it, and, the rest, have been hardened; - Even as it is written - God hath given unto them a spirit of stupor, - eyes not to see, and ears not to hear, - until this very day; And, David, saith - Let their table be turned into a snare, and into gin, and into a trap, and into a recompense unto them, Darkened be their eyes, not to see, and, their back, do thou continually bow down. I say then - Did they stumble in order that they might fall? Far be it! But, by their fall, salvation hath come unto the nations, to the end of provoking them to jealousy. If, moreover, their fail, is the riches of a world, and their loss, the riches of nations, how much rather their fullness? Unto you, however, am I speaking, - you of the nations; inasmuch, indeed, then, as, I, am an apostle to the nations, my ministry, I glorify, If by any means I may provoke to jealousy my own flesh, and save some from among them; - For, if, the casting away of them, hath become the reconciling of a world, what shall, the taking of them in addition, be, but life from among the dead?

Surely, to falsehood, pertain the hills The noisy throng on the mountains, - Surely, in Yahweh our God, is the salvation of Israel!

Oh that, out of Zion, were granted the salvation of Israel! When Yahweh bringeth back the captives of his people, Jacob, shall exult, Israel, be glad.

Oh that, out of Zion, were granted the salvations of Israel! When God bringeth back the captives of his people, Jacob, shall exult, Israel, shall be glad.


Jesus answered - Are there not, twelve hours, in the day? If one walk in the day, he doth no stumble, because, the light of this world, he seeth; But, if one walk in the night, he stumbleth, because, the light, is not in him.

Jesus, therefore, said unto them - Yet a little while, the light, is, among you: Walk, while ye have, the light, lest, darkness, on you should lay hold; and, he that walketh in darkness, knoweth not whither he drifteth. While, the light, ye have, believe on the light, that, sons of light, ye may become. These things, spake Jesus, - and, departing, was hid from them.

For, not like our Rock, is their rock, Our enemies themselves, being judges; For of the vine of Sodom, is their vine, And of the vineyards of Gomorrah, - Their grapes, are grapes of gall, Clusters of bitter things, are theirs: The poison of large serpents, is their wine, - Yea the fierce venom of asps. read more.
Is not, that, stored up with me, - Sealed up amongst my treasures; Unto the days of vengeance and requital: Unto the time their foot shall totter? For, near, is the day of their fate, And their destiny speedeth on.
