and set up the lamps before the Lord, just as the Lord had commanded him.
“Speak to Aaron and tell him: When you set up the lamps, the seven lamps are to give light in front of the lampstand.”
“No one, after lighting a lamp, covers it with a basket or puts it under a bed, but puts it on a lampstand so that those who come in may see its light.
“No one lights a lamp and puts it in the cellar or under a basket, but on a lampstand, so that those who come in may see its light.
If, therefore, your whole body is full of light, with no part of it in darkness, it will be entirely illuminated, as when a lamp shines its light on you.”
the light of a lamp
will never shine in you again;
and the voice of a groom and bride
will never be heard in you again.
All this will happen
because your merchants
were the nobility of the earth,
because all the nations were deceived
by your sorcery,
