Lo! days are coming, Declareth Yahweh, when I will raise up to David A righteous Bud, And he shall reign as king, and prosper, And shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. In his days, Shall Judah be saved, And Israeli abide securely, - And, this, is his name whereby he shall be called Yahweh, our Righteousness. Therefore, lo! days are coming, Declareth Yahweh, When it shall not be said any more As Yahweh liveth, who brought up the sons of Israel out of the land of Egypt; read more.
but - As Yahweh liveth who hath brought up and who hath brought in the seed of the house of Israel out of the land of the North, and out of all the lands whither I have driven them, - And they shall remain upon their own soil.
Lo! days are coming, Declareth Yahweh, - when I will establish my good word, which I have spoken - As to the house of Israel And concerning the house of Judah: In those days and at that time, will I cause to bud unto David A Bud of righteousness, - And he shall execute justice and righteousness in the land: In those days, Judah shall be Saved, and I Jerusalem abide, securely, - And, this, is that which shall be proclaimed to her - Yahweh, our righteousness! read more.
For, Thus, saith Yahweh, - There shall not be wanting to David - A man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel;
And I will solemnise for them a covenant of prosperity, And will cause to cease the mischievous wild-beast out of the land, And they shall dwell in the wilderness, securely, And shall sleep in the forests; And I, will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing,- And I will cause the abundant rain to come down in its season abundant rains of blessing, shall they be; And the tree of the field shall yield his fruit And The land, shall yield her increase, And they shall remain on their own sell in security,- So shall they know that I, am Yahweh, When I have broken a the bars of their yoke, And shall deliver them out of the hand of them who have been using them as slaves. read more.
And they shall be no longer a prey for the nations, Nor shall the wild beast of the earth! devour them, - But they shall dwell securely with none to put them in terror. And I will raise up unto them a plantation for fame,- And there shall be no longer the destroyed of hunger in the land, Neither shall they bear any longer the reproach of the nations. So shall they know that, I, Yahweh their God am with them,- And that they are my people the house of Israel, Declareth My Lord. Yahweh. Ye, therefore my flock the flock of my pasture are men, - am your God, Declareth My Lord Yahweh.
Thus saith My Lord, Yahweh, When I gather together the house of Israel, from the midst of the peoples among whom they have been scattered, and shall hallow myself in them before the eyes of the nations Then shall they dwell upon their own so, which I gave to my servant - to Jacob: Yea they shall dwell thereupon securely, Yea shall bud houses, and plant vineyards, and dwell securely, - When I have executed judgments on all that despised them on every side of them, So shall they know that, I, Yahweh am their God
So will Yahweh become king over all the earth, - In that day, shall there be one Yahweh, and, his Name, be one. All the land shall turn into a plain, from Geba to Rimmon, south of Jerusalem, - and shall lift herself on high and abide in her own place, from the gate of Benjamin up to the place of the first gate, up to the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananeel up to the wine-presses of the king. So shall men dwell therein, and, utter destruction, shall not be any more, - but Jerusalem, shall abide, in security. read more.
And, this, shall be the plague wherewith Yahweh will plague all the peoples who have made war against Jerusalem, - his flesh, shall be made to rot, while he is standing upon his feet, and, his eyes, shall rot in their sockets, and, his tongue, shall rot in their mouth; And it shall come to pass, in that day, that there shall be a great confusion from Yahweh among them, - and they will lay hold every one upon the hand of his neighbour, and his hand, will rise up, against the hand of his neighbour; Moreover also, Judah, will fight with Jerusalem, - and the wealth of all the nations round about, shall be gathered together, gold and silver and apparel, in great abundance. And, so, shall be the plague of the horse, the mule, the camel, and the ass, and all the beasts which shall be in those camps, - like this plague! And it shall come to pass, that, as for every one that is left out of all the nations that came against Jerusalem, that they shall come up, from year to year, to bow down to the king, Yahweh of hosts, and to celebrate the festival of booths. And it shall come to pass that - whoso shall not come up out of the families of the earth unto Jerusalem, to bow down to the king, Yahweh of hosts, - there shall not, on them, be any rain. And, if the family of Egypt shall not come up, and shall not enter in, upon whom there falleth none, then shall smite them the plague wherewith Yahweh, did plague, the nations, because they came not up to celebrate the festival of booths. This, shall be the punishment of Egypt, - and the punishment of all the nations, when they come not up to celebrate the festival of booths. In that day, shall there be inscribed upon the bells of the horses, Holy unto Yahweh, - and the caldrons in the house of Yahweh shall be like the dashing bowls before the altar. And every caldron in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be Holy unto Yahweh of hosts, - So shall all who are offering sacrifice, come in, and take of them, and boil therein, - Neither shall there be a merchant any more in the house of Yahweh of hosts, in that day.
So would the anger of Yahweh kindle upon you and he would shut up the heavens, that them should he no rain, and the ground, would not yield her increase, - so should ye perish speedily, from off the good land, which Yahweh is giving unto you.
When the heavens are shut up, and there is no rain, because they have been sinning against thee, - and they shall pray toward this place, and confess thy Name, and, from their sin, shall return, because thou hast been afflicting them,
Yahweh will cause the rain of thy land to he powder and dust, - out of the heavens, shall it come down upon thee, until thou he destroyed.
Moreover also, I, have withholden from you the abundant rain, when yet there were only three mouths to the harvest, Or I might rain upon one city, and, on another city, might not rain, - One portion, would be rained upon, and, the portion whereupon it should not rain, would be dried up;
If I shut up the heavens that there be no rain, or if I lay command on the locust, to devour the land, - or if I send pestilence, amongst my people:
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.
And it shall come to pass that - whoso shall not come up out of the families of the earth unto Jerusalem, to bow down to the king, Yahweh of hosts, - there shall not, on them, be any rain.
And it shall come to pass, that, as for every one that is left out of all the nations that came against Jerusalem, that they shall come up, from year to year, to bow down to the king, Yahweh of hosts, and to celebrate the festival of booths. And it shall come to pass that - whoso shall not come up out of the families of the earth unto Jerusalem, to bow down to the king, Yahweh of hosts, - there shall not, on them, be any rain.
And, if the family of Egypt shall not come up, and shall not enter in, upon whom there falleth none, then shall smite them the plague wherewith Yahweh, did plague, the nations, because they came not up to celebrate the festival of booths. read more.
This, shall be the punishment of Egypt, - and the punishment of all the nations, when they come not up to celebrate the festival of booths.
Even the light of the lawless, shall go out, - Neither shall shine the flame of his fire; The light, hath darkened in his tent, Yea, his lamp above him, goeth out; The steppings of his strength are hemmed in, and his own counsel casteth him down; read more.
For he is thrust into a net by his own feet, and, upon a trap, he marcheth; There catcheth him - by the heel - a gin, there holdeth him fast - a noose: Concealed in the ground is a cord for him, - and a snare for him, on the path. Round about, terrors have startled him, and have driven him to his feet. Let his strength be famished, and, calamity, be ready at his side; Let it devour the members of his body, Let the firstborn of death devour his members; Uprooted, out of his tent, be his confidence, and let it drive him down to the king of terrors; There shall dwell in his tent, what is naught-of-his, Let brimstone be strewed over his dwelling; Beneath, let his roots be dried up, and, above, be cut off his branch; His memorial, have perished out of the land, and let him have no name over the face of the open field; Let them thrust him out of light into darkness, Yea, out of the world, let them chase him; Let him have neither scion nor seed among his people, neither any survivor in his place of sojourn: Over his day, have they been astounded who come behind, and, them who are in advance, a shudder hath seized. Surely, these, are the dwellings of him that is perverse, and, this, is the place of him that knoweth not GOD.
Your iniquities, have thrust away these things, Yea, your sins, have withholden that which is good from you.
This, is the portion of a lawless man with GOD, That, the heritage of tyrants - from the Almighty, he shall receive. If his children be multiplied, for them, there is the sword, and, his offspring, shall not be filled with bread; His survivors, by pestilence, shall come to the grave, and, his widows, shall not weep; read more.
Though he heap up silver like, dust, and, like a pile, he prepare clothing, He may prepare, but, the righteous, shall put on, and, the silver, shall the innocent apportion. He hath built, like a moth, his house, - like a hut, which a watcher hath made. The rich man, shall lie down, and not do it again, his eyes, hath he opened, and then is not. There shall reach him - like waters - terrors, By night, a storm-wind hath stolen him away; An east wind shall lift him up, and he shall depart, and it shall sweep him away out of his place; And He will cast upon him and not spare, Out of his hand, shall he, swiftly flee; He shall clap over him his hands, and shall hiss him forth out of his place.
All the days of the lawless man, he, doth writhe with pain, and, the number of years, is hidden from the tyrant; A noise of dreadful things, is in his ears, In prosperity, the destroyer cometh upon him; He hath no confidence to come back out of darkness, he, being destined to the power oft the sword; read more.
A wanderer, he, for bread, saying Where is it ? He knoweth that, prepared by his own hand, is the day of darkness; Distress and anguish shall startle him, It shall overpower him, like a king ready for the onset: Because he had stretched out - against GOD - his hand, and, against the Almighty, had been wont to behave himself proudly; He used to run against him with uplifted neck, with the stout bosses of his bucklers; For he had covered his face with his fatness, and had gathered a superabundance on his loins; And had inhabited demolished cities, houses, wherein men would not dwell, that were destined to become heaps. He shall not be rich, nor shall his substance continue, neither shall their shadow stretch along on the earth; He shall not depart out of darkness, his young branch, shall the flame dry up, and he shall depart, by the breath of his own mouth! Let no one trust in him that - by vanity - is deceived, for, vanity, shall be his recompense; Before his day, shall it be accomplished, with, his palm-top, not covered with leaves; He shall wrong - like a vine - his sour grapes, and shall cast off - as an olive-tree - his blossom. For, the family of the impious, is unfruitful, and, a fire, hath devoured the tents of bribery; Conceiving mischief, and bringing forth iniquity, yea, their inmost soul, prepareth deceit.
That, the joy-shout of the lawless, is short, and, the rejoicing of the impious, for a moment? Though his elevation mount up to the heavens, and, his head, to the clouds, doth reach, Like his own stubble, shall he utterly perish, They who had seen him, shall say, Where is he? read more.
Like a dream, shall he fly away, and they shall not find him, yea he shall be chased away, as a vision of the night. The eye that hath scanned him, shall not do it again, neither, any more, shall his place behold him: His children, shall seek the favour of the poor, and, his own hand, shall give back his wealth. His bones, are full of youthful vigour, yet, with him - in the dust, shall it lie down. Though, a sweet taste in his mouth, be given by vice, though he hide it under his tongue; Though he spare it, and will not let it go, but retain it in the midst of his mouth, His food, in his stomach, is changed, the gall of adders, within him! Wealth, hath he swallowed, and hath vomited the same, Out of his belly, shall, GOD, drive it forth: The poison of adders, shall he suck, The tongue of the viper shall slay him; Let him not see in the channels the flowings of torrents of honey and milk. In vain, he toiled, he shall not swallow, like wealth to be restored, in which he cannot exult! For he hath oppressed - hath forsaken the poor, A house, hath he seized, which he cannot rebuild. Surely he hath known no peace in his inmost mind, - With his dearest thing, shall he not get away: Nothing escaped his devouring greed, - For this cause, shall his prosperity not continue: When his abundance is gone, he shall be in straits, All the power of distress, shall come upon him. It shall be that, to fill his belly, he will thrust at him the glow of his anger, and rain it upon him for his punishment. He shall flee from the armour of iron, - There shall pierce him, a bow of bronze! He hath drawn it out, and it hath come forth out of his back, - yea the flashing arrow-head, out of his gall, There shall march on him - terrors: Every misfortune, is laid up for his treasures, - There shall consume, a fire, not blown up, - it shall destroy what remaineth in his tent: The heavens shall reveal his iniquity, and, the earth, be rising up against him: The increase of his house shall vanish, melting away in the day of his anger. This, is the portion of the lawless man, from God, and the inheritance decreed him from the Mighty One.
Wherefore do, lawless men, live, advance in years, even wax mighty in power? Their seed, is established in their sight, along with them, yea their offspring, before their eyes; Their houses, are at peace, without dread, neither is, the rod of GOD, upon them; read more.
His bull, covereth, and causeth not aversion, His cow safely calveth, and casteth not her young; They send forth - like a flock - their young ones, and, their children, skip about for joy; They rejoice aloud as with timbrel and lyre, and make merry to the sound of the pipe; They complete, in prosperity, their days, and, in a moment to hades, they sink down. Yet they said unto GOD, Depart from us, and, In the knowledge of thy ways, find we no pleasure. What is the Almighty, that we should serve him? Or what shall we profit, that we should urge him? Lo! not in their own hand, is their welfare, The counsel of lawless men, is far from me! How oft, the lamp of the lawless, goeth out, and their calamity, cometh upon them, Sorrows, apportioneth he in his anger; They become as straw before the wind, and as chaff, which the storm stealeth away. Shall, GOD, reserve, for his children, his sorrow? Let him recompense him so that he may know it; His own eyes, shall see his misfortune, and, the wrath of the Almighty, shall he drink. For what shall be his pleasure in his house after him, when, the number of his months, is cut in twain? Is it, to GOD, one can teach knowledge, seeing that, he, shall judge, them who are on high? This, man dieth, in the very perfection of his prosperity, wholly tranquil and secure; His veins, are filled with nourishment, and, the marrow of his bones, is fresh; Whereas, this other man, dieth, in bitterness of soul, and hath never tasted good fortune: Together, in the dust, they lie down, and, the worm, spreadeth a covering over them. Lo! I know your plans, and the devices, wherewith ye would do me violence! For ye say, Where is the house of the noble-minded? And where the dwelling-tent of the lawless? Have ye not asked the passers-by in the way? And, their signs, can ye not recognise? That, to the day of calamity, is the wicked reserved, to the day of indignant visitation, are they led. Who can declare - to his face - his way? And, what, he, hath done, who shall recompense to him? Yet, he, to the graves, is borne, and, over the tomb, one keepeth watch; Pleasant to him are the mounds of the torrent-bed, - and, after him, doth every man march, as, before him, there were without number.
Boundaries, men move back, flocks, they seize and consume; The ass of the fatherless, they drive off, they take in pledge the ox of the widow; They turn aside the needy out of the way, at once, are the humbled of the land made to hide themselves. read more.
Lo! as wild asses in the wilderness, they go forth with their work, eager seekers for prey, the waste plain, yieldeth them food for their young; In the field - -a man's fodder, they cut down, and, the vineyard of the lawless, they strip of its late berries; Ill-clad, they are left to lodge without clothing, and have no covering in the cold; With the sweeping rain of the mountains, are they wet, and, through having no shelter, they embrace a rock. Men tear, from the breast, the fatherless, and, over the poor, they take a pledge; Naked, they go about without clothing, and, famished, they carry the sheaves; Between their walls, are they exposed to the sun, Wine-presses, they tread, and yet are thirsty; Out of the city - out of the houses, they make outcry. and, the soul of the wounded, calleth for help, and, GOD, doth not regard it as foolish. They, have become rebels against the light, - they are not acquainted with the ways thereof, neither abide they in the paths thereof. With the light, riseth the murderer, He slayeth the poor and needy, And, in the night, he becometh like a thief. And, the eye of the adulterer, watcheth for the evening twilight, saying, Not an eye will see me! A covering for the face, he putteth on; He breaketh, in the dark, into houses, - By day, they lock themselves in, They know not the light; For, in the case of all such, morning to them is the death-shade, For, to be recognised, is a death-shade terror. Swift is he on the face of the waters, Speedily vanished their share in the land, He turneth not to the way of the vineyards. Drought and heat, steal away snow water, Hades, them who have sinned. Maternal love shall forget him, the worm shall find him sweet, No more shall he be remembered, but perversity shall be shivered like a tree. He oppresseth the barren who beareth not, and, to the widow, he doeth not good; Yea he draggeth along the mighty by his strength, He riseth up, and none hath assurance of life; It is given him to be secure, and confident, yet, his eyes, are upon their ways. They are exalted a little, and are not, Yea having been laid low, like all men, are they gathered, Even as the top of an ear of corn, do they hang down.
By the sword, shah ye fall, Upon the boundary of Israel, will I judge you, - So shall, ye know that a Yahweh.
Then shalt thou say unto the people of the land Thus saith the Lord Yahweh concerning the inhabitants of Jerusalem, upon the so of Israel, Their bread, with anxious care, shall they eat, And their water in astonishment, shall they drink, - That there land may be deserted of her fulness because of the violence of all them who dwell therein: Yea the cities that are inhabited I shall be laid waste, And the land, shall become m astonish- men, - So shall ye know that, I am Yahweh.
And it shall come to pass that - whoso shall not come up out of the families of the earth unto Jerusalem, to bow down to the king, Yahweh of hosts, - there shall not, on them, be any rain. And, if the family of Egypt shall not come up, and shall not enter in, upon whom there falleth none, then shall smite them the plague wherewith Yahweh, did plague, the nations, because they came not up to celebrate the festival of booths. This, shall be the punishment of Egypt, - and the punishment of all the nations, when they come not up to celebrate the festival of booths.
