Christmas: The Truth Your Pastor Refuses to Tell You Concerning the Pagan (Nimrodic) Roots of Christmas(s)

Please ask your pastor about the Pagan (Nimrodic) roots of Christmas. Ask your (a) Christian pastor why he celebrates a holiday that honors the Babylonian trinity of Nimrod, Tammuz and Semiramis? Please ask your favorite Christian leader or organization why they celebrate a known Pagan holiday from the Babylonian trinity of Nimrod, Tammuz and Semiramis that is now called ‘Christmas.’ Thank you, you may be very glad you did. 🙂

How to Become Saved by Immersion Water Baptism through the Belief in the Perfect Blood Atonement Provided By Elohim Through His Sinless Son, Yahusha/ Yahushua Messiah (Mashiach)

If you died today or “tomorrow,” will you then be in some sort of state of non-existence? Love, hate and the question of where all matter came from that exists have not been properly answered in the context of a belief in a non-created universe. If there is a Creator, then, assuming He is not schizophrenic and opposes Himself, there must be at least one opponent, since there is true evil in the world. Satan is the enemy of all souls, with Hell created for Satan and one third of the messengers of Elohim who followed him in rebellion against the Most High El [Yeshayahu (Isaiah)14:3-27.] Being perfect, Elohim required a perfect sacrifice in order for any flesh to be redeemed, as Scripture records in Romans 3:10-26:

As it has been written, “There is none righteous, no, not one! There is no one who is understanding, there is none who is seeking Elohim. They all have turned aside, they have together become worthless. There is none who does good, no, not one.” “Their throat is an open tomb, with their tongues they have deceived,” “The poison of adders is under their lips,” “Whose mouth is filled with cursing and bitterness.” “Their feet are swift to shed blood, ruin and wretchedness are in their ways, and the way of peace they have not known.” “There is no fear of Elohim before their eyes.”

19. And we know that whatever the Torah says, it says to those who are in the Torah, so that every mouth might be stopped and all the world come under the judgment before Elohim. Therefore by the works of the Torah no flesh shall be declared right before Him, for by the Torah is the knowledge of sin. But now, apart from the Torah, a righteousness of Elohim has been revealed, being witnessed by the Torah and the Prophets, and the righteousness of Elohim is through belief in Yahusha Anointed One [Editor’s Note: Hebrew — Yahusha] Messiah to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the esteem of Elohim, being declared right, without paying, by His favour through the redemption which is in Messiah Yahusha Anointed One, whom Elohim set forth as an atonement, through belief in His blood, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His tolerance Elohim had passed over the sins that had taken place before, to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He is righteous and declares righteous the one who has belief in Yahusha Anointed One.

Yahusha Messiah was sinless, yet He, Himself, was baptized by John the baptizer, whom was immersing people in the Jordan River to “wash” away their sins as recorded in Scripture in Yohanan (John) 3:1-36 and Yohanan 1:1-37 below:

Yohanan (John in “Christian Bibles”) 3:1-36 And there was a man of the Pharisees, Nakdimon was his name, a ruler of the Yahudim. This one came to Yahusha Anointed One by night and said to Him, “Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from Elohim, for no one is able to do these signs You do if Elohim is not with him.” Yahusha Anointed One answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born from above, he is unable to see the reign of Elohim.” Nakdimon said to Him, “How is a man able to be born when he is old? Is he able to enter into his mother’s womb a second time and be born?”

3. Yahusha Anointed Oneanswered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he is unable to enter into the reign of Elohim. That which has been born of the flesh is flesh and that which has been born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You have to be born from above.’ “The Spirit breathes where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who has been born of the Spirit.” Nakdimon answered and said to Him, “How is it possible for this to take place?”

10. Yahusha Anointed One answered and said to him, “Are you a teacher of Yisra’el and do not know this? Truly, truly, I say to you, We speak what We know and witness what We have seen and you do not receive Our witness. If you do not believe when I spoke to you about earthly matters, how are you going to believe when I speak to you about the heavenly matters? And no one has gone up into the heavens except He who came down from the heavens — the Son of Adam. And as Mosheh lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so the Son of Adam has to be lifted up, so that whoever is believing in Him should not perish but possess everlasting life.

16. “For Elohim so loved the world that He gave His only brought-forth Son, so that everyone who believes in Him should not perish but possess everlasting life. For Elohim did not send His Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not judged, but he who does not believe is judged already, because he has not believed in the Name of the only brought-forth Son of Elohim. And this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world and men loved the darkness rather than the light, for their works were wicked. For everyone who is practicing evil matters hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. But the one doing the truth comes to the light, so that his works are clearly seen, that they have been wrought in Elohim.”

22. After this, Yahusha Anointed One and His taught ones came into the land of Yahudah and He remained there with them and was immersing. And Yahanan was also immersing in Ayim near Salim, because there was plenty of water there. And they were coming and were being immersed, for Yohanan had not yet been put into prison. Then a dispute arose between some of Yohanan’s taught ones and the Yahudim about cleansing, and they came to Yohanan and said to him, “Rabbi, He who was with you beyond the Yarden, to who you have witnessed, see, He is immersing and all are coming to Him!”

27. Yohanan answered and said, “No man is able to receive any matter unless it is given to him from the heavens. You yourselves are witness for me that I said, ‘I am not the Messiah but I am sent ahead of Him.’ He that has the bride is the bridegroom, but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the voice of the bridegroom. so this joy of mine is complete. It is right for Him to increase, but me to decrease. He who comes from above is over all, he who is from the earth is of the earth and speaks of the earth. He who comes from the heavens is over all.

32. And what He has seen and heard, that He witnesses. He who receives His witness has set his seal that Elohim is true. For He whom Elohim has sent speaks the Words of Elohim, for Elohim does not give the Spirit by measure. The Father loves the Son and has given all into His hand. He who believes in the Son possesses everlasting life but he who does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of Elohim remains on Him.”

—————————————————————————————————————————————————

Yohanan 1:1-37 In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with Elohim and the Word was Elohim. He was in the beginning with Elohim. All came to be through Him and without Him not even on came to be that came to be. In Him was life and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it. There was a man sent from Elohim, whose name was Yohanan. This one came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all might believe through Him. He was not that Light, but that he might bear witness of that Light. He was the true Light, which enlightens every man, coming into the world. He was in the world and the world came to be through Him and the world did not know Him. He came to His own and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the authority to become children of Elohim, to those believing in His Name, who were born, not of blood nor of the desire of flesh nor the desire of man, but of Elohim.

14. And the Word became flesh and pitched His tent among us and we saw His esteem, esteem as of an only brought-forth of a father, complete in favour and truth. Yohanan bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me has become before me, because He was before me.'” And out of His completeness we all did receive and favour upon favour, for the Torah was given through Mosheh — the favour and the truth came through Yahusha Anointed One Messiah.

18. No one has ever seen Elohim. The only brought-forth Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He did declare. Now this was the witness of Yohanan when the Yahudim sent from Yerushalayim priests and Lewites to ask him, “Who are you?” And he confessed and did not deny, but confessed, “I am not the Messiah.” And they asked him, “What then, are you Eliyahu?” So he said, “I am not.” “Are you the Prophet?” And he answered, “No.”

23. He said, “I am a voice of one crying in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way of Behold Nail Behold Hand =YAHUAH,’ as the prophet Yeshayahu said.” And those sent were of the Pharisees, and they asked him, saying, “Why then do you immerse if you are not the Messiah, nor Eliyahu, nor the Prophet?”

26. Yohanan answered them, saying, “I immerse in water, but in your midst stands One coming after me, who has become before me, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loosen.” This took place in Beyth Anyah beyond the Yarden, where Yohanan was immersing.

29. The next day Yohanan saw Yahusha Anointed One coming toward him and said, “See, the Lamb of Elohim who takes away the sin of the world! This is He of whom I said, ‘After me comes a Man who has become before me, for He was before me.’ And I did not know Him, but that He might be revealed to Yisra’el, therefore I came immersing in water.”

32. And Yohanan bore witness, saying, “I have seen the Spirit coming down from heaven like a dove and remain on Him. And I did not know Him, but He who sent me to immerse in water said to me, ‘Upon whom you see the Spirit coming down and remaining on Him, this is He who immerses in the Set-Apart Spirit.’ And I have seen and have witnessed that this is the Son of Elohim.”

35. Again the following day, Yohanan was standing with two of his taught ones, and looking at Yahusha Anointed One walking, he said, “See the Lamb of Elohim!” And the two taught ones heard him speaking and they followed Yahusha Anointed One.

So, the question may arise? ‘Is baptism necessary for salvation?’ The answere is yes, according to Scripture. See here.

Another question may arise, such as, “Can I baptize myself?” Since Scripture says in Mattithyahu (Matthew) chapter 18 verse 19-20, “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning any matter that they ask, it shall be dome for them by My Father in the heavens. For where two or three are gathered together in My Name, there I am in their midst,” then it seems to me that there only needs to be one other person present with you there, which is your baptizer. It doesn’t say that the other person has to be saved, though. So, you plausibly can have someone who is not a Believer, and who has not been saved, immerse someone else under water in the Name of Yahusha/Yahushua Messiah. Any water where the entire body (hair not necessary) can be immersed under water, like a large bath tub, swimming pool or any deep body of water like a river, lake or ocean, can be used.

The one who is baptizing shall put his hand upon the one he or she is baptizing and help them to completely immerse under water, saying, “I baptize you in the Name of Yahusha (or Yahushua) Messiah (or Savoir, Redeemer, Mashiach or Anointed One, but I do not recommend “Christ,” since this name is Greek and has as its main-root definition as another sovereign) and in the Name of the Father, YHWH (or YAHUAH or Elohim). 

Hand_Behold_Nail_Behold  YAHUAH ELOHIM name-of-the-son-Yahusha 1hebrew_alphabets

Behold Nail Behold Hand YHWH husha Yahusha Yahusha YAHUAH Oshea Howshea---  Yasha means to save Yahusha Messiah

Yahudah (Jude): To Those Who Are Called, Set-Apart by Elohim the Father and Preserved in Yahusha Messiah

Yahudah (Jude)

1. Yahudah, as servant of Yahusha Anointed One Messiah and brother of Ya’aqob, to those who are called, set-apart by Elohim the Father and preserved in Yahusha Anointed One Messiah.

2. Compassion and peace and love be increased to you.

3. Beloved ones, making all haste to write to you concerning our common deliverance, I felt the necessity to write to you urging you to earnestly contend for the belief which was once for all delivered to the Set-apart Ones.

4. For certain men have slipped in, whose judgment was written about long ago, wicked ones perverting the favour of our Elohim for indecency and denying the only Master Behold Nail Behold Hand =YAHUAH and our Master Yahusha Anointed One Messiah.

5. But I intend to remind you, though you once knew this, that Behold Nail Behold Hand =YAHUAH , having saved a people out of the land of Mitsrayim, afterward destroyed those who did not believe.

6. And the messengers who did not keep their own principality, but left their own dwelling, He has kept in everlasting shackles under darkness for the judgment of the great day.

7. Even as Sedom and Amorah and the cities around them in a similar way to these, having given themselves over to whoring and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, undergoing judicial punishment of everlasting fire.

8. In the same way, indeed, these dreamers defile the flesh and reject authority and speak evil of esteemed ones.

9. But Mika’el the chief messenger, in contending with the devil, when he disputed about the body of Mosheh, presumed not to bring against him a blasphemous accusation, but said, ” Behold Nail Behold Hand =YAHUAH rebuke you!”

10. But these blaspheme that which they do no know. And that which they know naturally, like unreasoning beasts, in these they corrupt themselves.

11. Woe to them! Because they have gone in the way of Qayin and gave themselves to the delusion of Bil’am for a reward and perished in the rebellion of Qorah.

12. These are rocky reefs in our love feasts, feasting with you, feeding themselves without fear, waterless clouds borne about by the winds, late autumn tress without fruit, twice dead, pulled up by the roots,

13. wild waves of the sea foaming up their own shame, straying stars for whom blackness of darkness is kept forever.

14. And Hanok, the seventh from Adam, also prophesied of these, saying, “See, Behold Nail Behold Hand =YAHUAH comes with His myriads of Set-Apart Ones,

15. to execute judgment on all, to punish all who are wicked among them concerning all their wicked works which they have committed in a wicked way and concerning all the harsh words which wicked sinners have spoken against Him.”

16.These are grumblers, complainers, who walk according to their own lusts and their mouth speaks proudly, admiring faces of others for the sake of gain.

17. But you, beloved ones, remember the words spoken before by the emissaries of our Master Yahusha Anointed One Messiah,

18. because they told you that there would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own wicked lusts.

19. These are the ones who cause divisions, not having the Spirit.

20. But you, beloved ones, building yourselves up on your most set-apart belief, praying in the Set-Apart Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of our Master Yahusha Anointed One Messiah unto everlasting life.

22. And show compassion toward some who are doubting,

23. but others save with fear, snatching them out of the fire, hating even the garment of defiled by the flesh.

24. And to Him Who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of His esteem with exceeding joy,

25. to the only wise Elohim, our Saviour, be esteem and greatness and might and authority, both now and forever. Amen.

Issa: Holder, DOJ Had ‘Rahm Emanuel Moment’ — “Very Clearly They Made A Crisis To Take Away Or Limit People’s Second Amendment Rights,” As ANOTHER Obama Associate Is Sentenced To Prison

This is a continuing series and is Part 13 Of: Now Get Ready For Some Shock And Awe — YAHUAH-Style, Since Homosexual Fascism is Now Being Promoted in the U.S. Military and U.S. Government School Systems

BREAKING NEWS UPDATES: Where Have All The Congressmen Gone? Communists Occupiers Threatening Interstate Commerce And Wally Herger And Others Want Their Pensions?    

Why is the Congress not holding investigatory hearings into the BOLD, BLATANT ATTEMPTS TO SABOTAGE INTERSTATE COMMERCE, seeing that this IS one of the reasons Congress actually DOES make a difference and can help the states fend off ILLEGAL, COORDINATED, MALICIOUS ATTEMPTS TO DESTROY COMMERCE and bring this country to FULL COMMUNISM — OCCUPIER-STYLE!!!

Here is a web site that BOLDLY proclaims to OCCUPY PORTS 12.12.11 and then they say that “You Can’t Evict An Idea Whose Time Has Come.”     Actually, by LAWLESSLY taking and preventing others from excersizing their YAHUAH-given Constitutional rights, these Communist  Occupiers are the REASON why there are RICO laws in the first place: to prevent COMMUNISTS from trampling over the rights of others.

I call upon all who enjoy Law and Order in the United States of America to please call or e-mail, text, etc. your Congressional Representative and DEMAND they do their jobs and fulfill their Oath of Office by holding hearings to determine how to bring Law and Order back to the America. If they can Occupy banks, bridges, front lawns, ports, Public Parks, streets and buildings, then Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Assembly and Freedom of Religion will become a thing of the past and a better name for us would be the “Fascist States of America,” in my opinion!!!

Next Communist Showdown Is At The Ports    Inspired by the INACTION of Congress of the Nov. 2 shutdown of the Port of Oakland by Communists Occupy Oakland protesters, Occupy movements across the country are now seeking to disrupt ports and shipping activities. Maybe the timid GOP thinks that these Communists that Obama, Nasty Pelosi and other rabid Communists of the Democratic Party will give them their pensions and other perks if they don’t bother the. I have warned America that this entire country will be ripped out from underneath them, since they are letting a wicked (they STILL actually are self-deluded and think Mr. BHO is a “nice” man!!!) man, President Barack Hussein Obama infect this country with Homosexual Fascist in the military and in our school systems. You are now watching in slow motion that will pick up at a fast pace. Frogs in warm water wait until it is too late to jump to safety. Your love of Hedonism is STRONGER than your love for Truth and Justice and your Creator. As President Obama’s mentor and as co-conspirator in their grooming of Communist Obama, Jeramiah Wright and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan put it: America’s chickens are come home to roost.

Communist Occupiers Want 1,000,000 Tents To Occupy Congress, January 2012    Yesterday, Communist Occupy DC targeted for protests  congressional Democrats at a campaign fundraiser. Now, Communist Occupiers say they plan to Occupy Congress on Jan. 17 in what may be the “largest Occupy protest ever!

It’s being timed with the start of the 2012 legislative session for Congress, with Communist protesters saying they hope there will be up 1 million tents in front of the Capitol. “We’re taking the movement straight to their doorstep,” says the protest’s Facebook page.

And open your ears, you complacent Americans, since a Puerto Rican student wrote on Twitter that she hoped the Communist Occupiers would Occupy the Federal Reserve, Treasury, and Supreme Court, too.

Capitalist America: To Be Or Not To Be Free    “According to Barack Obama, the Democrat party and Occupy Wall Street, society’s ills are primarily the fault of the entrepreneurial class. The rich and greedy. Those evil corporations who sap the life blood out of working class men and women. For maximum profit.  Servants to the god of mammon, capitalists defraud their workers of time and energy compensating them only as much as required to keep their work force at work and generating fat profits for the fat cats. The poor get poorer and the rich get richer. Business owners obscenely profiting off of the noble sweat of their enslaved and powerless labor force. The exploitation of the common man.

This is the worldview of the liberal/progressive.  The socialist, Marxist and anti-capitalist.  And the President of the United States.

As the world’s foremost anti-capitalist, Barack Obama promises to punish ‘the rich.’ Though the top 1% of Americans pay 37% of America’s tax revenue, Obama claims they should pay more. They should ‘pay their fair share.’ As defined by Obama.” —

U.S. Banks Being Taken Over Using Chavez-Style ManipulationPart-2    “With $12 billion dollars in losses with the closing of Indy Mac ( now One West Bank) is it any wonder the FDIC fund is broke?  How are  Soros,  Paulson and Dell allowed to make a billion and a half dollars from the takeover of Indy Mac Bank in 2010 alone, while ignoring the losses? This is a massive transfer of wealth being manipulated by the Obama-Bernanke-Geitner-Soros consortium, where banks end up being owned by assorted leftists and crony-capitalists of the Obama regime,  eerily similar to what Mr. Hugo Chavez is doing in forming his Communist collective in Venezuela. This widespread power grab in taking over banks and putting them in the hands of  the likes of billionaire currency manipulators and finance fraudsters like George Soros has very deep ramifications for the public. As of right now, people who have money in FDIC insured banks have no guarantee that the money is actually in that bank, as witnessed in the Reuters article above: ‘With a rise in the number of troubled banks, the FDIC’s Deposit Insurance Fund used to repay insured deposits at failed banks has been drained.'” —

Eric Holder Claims He Ignored FIVE Fast And Furious Briefings?    Any hope of an “incompetence” defense was dashed whenRep. Issa and Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) revealed that Holder was sent FIVE memo about Fast and Furious, issued briefings four weeks in a row.  As Big Government reports:

The Attorney General told Issa during a House Judiciary Committee in May 2011 that he had just learned of Fast and Furious a few weeks before. Yet, on January 31, in a previously scheduled meeting, Grassley personally handed him two letters about Fast and Furious. Grassley and Issa said they find it very troubling that Holder actually knew of Operation Fast and Furious much earlier, and in greater detail than he ever let on.

The memos specifically said that the straw buyers were “responsible for the purchase of 1500 firearms that were then supplied to Mexican drug trafficking cartels.”

“With the fairly detailed information that the Attorney General read, it seems the logical question for the Attorney General after reading in the memo would be “why haven’t we stopped them?” Grassley said. “And if he didn’t ask the questions, why didn’t he or somebody in his office?”

“Attorney General Holder has failed to give Congress and the American people an honest account of what he and other senior Justice Department officials knew about gunwalking and Operation Fast and Furious. The lack of candor and honesty from our nation’s chief law enforcement officials in this matter is deeply disturbing,” Issa said.

Congress Adds Money Laundering To Holder Crimes    “Yesterday, in a front page story, the New York Times reported that ‘in operations supervised by the Justice Department and orchestrated to get around sovereignty restrictions,’ American narcotics agents have ‘laundered or smuggled millions of dollars in drug proceeds as part of Washington’s expanding role in Mexico’s fight against drug cartels,’ Issa asked Erick Holder.

Obama Department Of Justice Personnel Ought To Be Impeached For Crimes Against Humanity, Starting With Eric Holder    “My committee was systematically lied to by your representatives,” Issa said.

“If we don’t get to the bottom of this, and that requires your assistance on that, there is only one alternative that Congress has – and it’s called impeachment,” Rep. Sensenbrenner (R-WI) said. “I’ve done more impeachments than anybody in the country.”

Eric Holder Impeachment Is A Good First Start    “ATF officials didn’t intend to publicly disclose their own role in letting Mexican cartels obtain the weapons,” says CBS, “but emails show they discussed using the sales, including sales encouraged by ATF, to justify a new gun regulation called ‘Demand Letter 3’. That would require some U.S. gun shops to report the sale of multiple rifles or ‘long guns.’ Demand Letter 3 was so named because it would be the third ATF program demanding gun dealers report tracing information.”

 “There is really no responsibility within the Justice Department,”  Sensenbrenner said.

Attorney General Eric Holder responded to the committee by comparing the hearings on Fast and Furious to the hearings conducted by Senator Joe McCarthy in the 1950s on communists in government.  

No responsibility implies neutrality on responsibility, but negative responsibility can only go by one word: crime.

Is The RNC Relevant?    “The RNC want Republicans to give occupant a fair shake? Let’s give him what he deserves. Let’s call him what he is…a liar. Calling a liar a liar based on verifiably factual information does not reveal an inability to debate issues on merit. Just the contrary.

“Here’s the fact based truth: ‘progressives’ lie, cheat, & steal any and every election they can. Like every other Chicago based thug politician, the ‘progressive’ occupying the Oval Office is a forked tongued, two faced, backstabbing, hypocritical, pathological liar who will throw his own allies to the wolves at the drop of a hat in order to save his own political hide.

“If the RNC disaproves of speaking that truth to that power, then perhaps it’s time for Conservative Americans to render the RNC irrelevant.” —

Russian Elections: Vladimir Putin Accuses Hillary Clinton Of Inciting Moscow Protests    Putin’s government crackdown on opposition protesters has seen more than 1,000 people arrested in three days of protests in the Russian capital over what they and others have charged are allegations of electoral fraud.

Putin claimed the protesters had ‘started active work’ withthe support of the U.S. state department‘. ‘We are the largest nuclear power,’ he said.

“And our partners have certain concerns and shake us so that we don’t forget who is the master of this planet, so that we remain obedient and feel that they have leverage to influence us within our own country.” He warned repercussions to those who “dance to the tune of a foreign state.”

Around 50,000 have pledged to attend a protest in the shadow of the Kremlin tomorrow to call for a re-run of the poll.

“We need to think about strengthening the law and holding more responsible those who carry out the task of a foreign government to influence our internal political process,” he said.

Russia Wants More Guarantees Of Missile Defense Shield, Suggests Difficulties With Other “Projects”    “We want to have clear guarantees that the missile defense capabilities will not be targeted against our strategic capability,” Lavrov told a news conference.

“We stand ready to dialogue provided legitimate interests of all parties are taken into account,” Lavrov said. “We still have some time, but time is running out every day.”

We can’t be told no on the missile shield project and then be required to say yes to other projects,” he told reporters. “If this shield is not a shield, if it is something offensive … this would be negative for us.”

Obama’s Secretary Of State Clinton Kept Dutch’s Foreign Ministers Waiting 6 Min. In Hallway While On She Was On The Phone     Rosenthal stood and waited when, finally, the door opened, Clinton emerged and apologized explaining to Rosenthal that she had been on the phone with a senator “on an issue.”

Who Celebrates Hanukkah Early? Well, President Obama,That’s Who    Although Hanukkah actually begins at sunset on Dec. 20., President Barack Hussein Obama celebrated it early and joked that everyone needs to be “careful that your kids don’t start thinking Hanukkah lasts 20 nights instead of eight.”

The article says that the Hanukkah story is about a small band of Jews rededicating a Jerusalem temple discovered that instead of a one-day supply of oil to kindle a flame, it lasted for eight days.

Iran Shows Alleged Downed U.S. Drone (Video)    “They wanted to spy on Iran, but it has turned against them,” said a news person. “Iran’s wisdom is keeping the Americans awake at night.”

“Iran understands that they have a choice,” Obama said. “They can break that isolation by acting responsibly and forswearing the development of nuclear weapons . . . or they can continue to operate in a fashion that isolates them from the entire world.” And if Iran is pursuing nuclear arms, “that is contrary to the national security interests of the United States,” Obama said. “And we are going to work with the world community to prevent that.” Talk is cheap and positive results are rare for the Obama administration, save some excellent drone strikes against very important al-Qaeda targets.

Obama Says He Is Considering “All Options” With “No Options Off The Table” Against Iranian Iranian Nuclear Intransigence     “No options off the table means I’m considering all options,” President Obama said.

“Israeli people are divided among themselves. Just as there are fears of an attack, there are also no less heartfelt fears of not taking a preemptive strike at the proper time,” columnist Israel Harel wrote in the Haaretz newspaper.

Obama’s DNC All About Inclusion Of Occupy Voices -Except At Their Convention (Hypocrisy, Democrat Style🙂     John Heilemann’s cover story “2012=1968?” tells the story about a worried DNC concerned whether Occupiers will do to Charlotte’s Democratic National Convention in 2012 what demonstrators did to the Chicago DNC in 1968. The North Carolina city is sometimes called the “Wall Street of the South.”

They are busy working to pass an ordinance that would prohibit downtown spaces with tents making them a “public nuisance.”

“Unlike many cities that have well-developed regulations governing protest activity, our local regulations contain gaps that need to be filled,” Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx said. But a memo notes, “The recent issues related to camping on city property have further amplified the need to review whether the city wants to regulate this activity during the DNC.”

Once those ordinances go into effect, those overnight stays will end.”A city councilman said.

Everybody I talked to said the DNC is ground zero for everything,” the article says one organizer explains. “Everybody wants to be involved. We’re estimating several thousands of people coming especially from the Occupy community.” .”The DNC seems to be “a powder keg that “has got a big target on it

The “Bastards” Are: “The New York Times, Sen Carl Levin And Their 40 Democratic Allies In The House Of Representatives”    “So let me be absolutely clear about who the bastards are: The New York Times, Senator Carl Levin and their 40 Democratic allies in the House of Representatives. The disgrace in question: The Times’s April 2008 “exposé” alleging conflicts of interest and wrongdoing by the retired military analysts often featured on television newscasts before and during the Iraq War.”

“Scarborough eventually uncovered and reported the shocking truth: Senator Levin directly intervened in the investigation in order to influence the wording of the final IG report. This was the political equivalent of jury-tampering but, for a while, it seemed like Senator Levin’s misconduct would go un-noticed. But then, Congressman Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, announced his intention to examine Senator Levin’s meddling.” —

Newt Gingrich’s Lesbian Sister Works For Radical ‘Human Rights Campaign’ And Will Work “Really, Really Hard” For Obama      The rabidly pro-homosexual Obama and the rabidly pro-homosexual Candace Gingrich beating up on Newt Gingrich for defending the definition of marriage to include only those of the opposite sex may be too tempting a photo-op for Obama in the future.

I believe that marriage is between a man and woman,” he explained to a crowd in Iowa in September. “It has been for all of recorded history.”

Yes, and why would I want to encourage people to willingly and perversely become homosexuals and lesbians, when in FACT they can CHOOSE to NOT to commit homosexual acts, just like heterosexuals can CHOOSE to NOT to commit heterosexual acts – or cannot they contain themselves and are uncontrolled and act without regard to any negative consequences? What about the diseases and early death at age around 42 years old for Homosexuals and Lesbians who engage in homosexual acts (some people may be tempted with various temptations such as to continue to dwell, think on homosexuality, but do NOT commit acts of homosexuality or other acts of sin)?

No Longer “Just The Flavor Of The Month,” Gingrich Has Commanding Lead In Three Of Four First Primary States   “Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is no longer just the flavor of the month since his boomlet has now stretched from November into December and voting begins in Iowa in less than four weeks,” said Peter Brown of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

Gingrich’s surge in the GOP race is accompanied by a better showing among independent voters in a general election race against President Obama, although he still has a ways to go. The president still leads Gingrich in Pennsylvania, but Ohio and Florida are too close to call,” Brown explains.

The Quinnipiac poll is only one day after a CNN/Time poll showed Gingrich with a 13 points lead on Romney in Iowa and a 23 points ahead in South Carolina and Florida.

Newt Gingrich Speaks At Republican Jewish Coalition: “We Will Send The Embassy From Tel Aviv To Jerusalem, As Of That Day”     “This is an administration which, frankly, should be firing the ambassador to Belgium, who gave a stunningly anti-Semitic speech,” Gingrich told the audience. “This is an administration which, frankly, should be reprimanding the Secretary of Defense for an insulting performance the other day.”

Gingrich criticized as “outragious” Obama’s Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s speech at the Saban forum last week, where Panetta called on Israeli and Palestinian leaders to “get to the damn table.”

“Panetta is a fine domestic politician, but his speech was outrageous. How about saying to Hamas, give up violence and come to the table? How about saying to the PLO, recognize Israel and come to the table? This one-sided continuing pressure that says it’s always Israel’s fault, no matter how bad the other side is, has to stop. The fact that Secretary Clinton would talk about discrimination against women in Israel, and then meet with Saudis? ” he said.

In a Gingrich administration, on the opening day, there will be an executive order about two hours after the inaugural address,” Newt explained. “We will send the Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, as of that day.”

Gingrich also promised to fund “every dissident group” to promote the regime change, arguing its the only rational policy in the long run.

Moody’s Cuts Three French Banks    “Liquidity and funding conditions have deteriorated significantly for (the three banks),”said Moody’s.

The probability that the banks will face further funding pressures has risen in line with the worsening European debt crisis.”

“Cameron Is A Coward”: European Politicians Slam British EU Veto    “The game of always wanting to have a say in the debate while also wrecking every compromise is not acceptable in the long run,” says Weber. “You can’t be a little bit pregnant.”

“Now, we must put pressure on the British and force them, by implementing tough regulations on financial markets, to decide if they want out of the EU or if they want to stay inside,” says Green politician Cohn-Bendit.

Communist Occupy Wall Street Protesters Shut Down ‘Law & Order: SVU’ Set Depicting OWS    Obama’s reason for running for President is as he said it was — for the Occupiers. And they seem to be like the Nazi Stormtroopers, willing, able and ready to do damage to whatever they don’t like.

More than 100 Communist Occupiers stormed the set for “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” which is across from the Manhattan State Supreme Courthouse. They shut down production of an OWS-themed episode. Do you think President Divider-in Chief Obama will reprimand them for this illegal act or ANY illegal act they commit – unless it gets massive media attention? Hitler didn’t care either!

Issa: “There Is A Rahm Emanuel Moment” “To Take Away Or Limit People’s Second Amendment Rights”     Don’t you see that when the Obama Administration was telling American as per President Obama that American gun dealers were responsible for guns ending up in Mexico to be used by the Mexican Drug Cartels all the while his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton was at the U.N. trying to inhibit OUR Second Amendment rights, all the while his Top Cop, corrupt Attorney General Eric Holder, was busy sending over 2,000 dangerous guns and over 2,000 grenades along with a guy to help a Mexican Drug Cartel make them and a way to launder their drug money? This was a way to TAKE AWAY our ability to defend against Obama’s dictatorship-in-the-making.

There is a ‘Rahm Emanuel moment‘ that’s pretty obvious,” Issa told Sean Hannity. “When this disaster was happening, they decided to be opportunists and use it to expand the gun database that they are now executing by their own regulations in four states, and asking Congress to expand nationally.”

VERY CLEARLY THEY MADE A CRISIS TO TAKE AWAY OR LIMIT PEOPLE’S SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS,” Darrel Issa explained to Americans on Fox.

ANOTHER Obama Associate Sentenced To Federal Prison    Rod Blagojevich was Illinois’ 40th governor and an Obama associate who was just sentenced to 14 years in prison for the attempted sale of a U.S. Senate seat, illegal shakedowns for campaign cash and lying to federal agents. He was sentenced in 2011 and won’t be eligible for parole until he serves 11 years 11 months.

CDN: “Barack Obama and Eric Holder both claim to be ignorant of this operation but are they not responsible for the actions of the bureaucrats that they appoint to office?”     TO: Sen. Grassley, Rep. Issa, June 3, 2011

“I am writing about the controversy over the BAFTE and “Project Gunrunner”. I have discovered quite a lot about this operation in my research. I have read about the illegal activities and the deaths involved, including that of Border patrol Agent Brian Terry on December 10, 2010 in a remote area near Nogales, Arizona. I don’t know how much information you have on this so I will let you know what I know and hope that, as the members of Congress investigating this matter, you have more information than I have. The gun dealers involved in this reported the suspected straw purchases to the BAFTE, as required by federal law, and were told to let them walk so the guns could be traced to crimes in Mexico. The guns were never traced and this was only discovered because one of the guns that resulted in the death of Agent Terry was left at the scene of the shootout with the border patrol agents.

“Hillary Clinton runs all over the world decrying the “gun show loophole” and claiming that guns bought at gun shows and dealers like the ones in Arizona are the cause of the violence in Mexico. We all know that this is a huge lie to impose their brand of Marxist tyranny upon We the People of the United States of America. I believe the number she claims is 90% of the guns used in crimes come from gun dealers in the United States. You and I know, as does Hillary, that this is an absolute lie but she spouts it anyway.

“According to Darren Gil, the agency’s attaché in Mexico City, he was not informed of this operation nor was anyone in the Mexican government. Mr. Gil was forced to resign and claims that the authority for this operation came from the BATFE director and the Justice Department, headed by Eric Holder. When Mr. Gil found out about an unusually high number of guns captured by Mexican authorities being traced back to Phoenix, he asked for information. He told CBS in an interview that the meetings in which he challenged his superiors about the operation turned into shouting matches and he was instructed to continue to keep his Mexican counterparts in the dark about the operation.

“BATFE agent John Dodson was also attempting to use the ‘whistleblower’ statutes to reveal this illegal operation but was thwarted by a lack of response from superiors who refused to answer e-mails and telephone calls. Agent Dodson told CBS that his superiors told him that “if they were going to make omelets that they had to break some eggs”. It is a shame that one of those “eggs” that had to be broken was Brian Terry. All the time this was going on the administration was using the violence in Mexico as an excuse to attempt to subvert the 2nd Amendment and restrict law abiding citizens from owning firearms, in violation of the Constitution.

Barak Obama and Eric Holder both claim to be ignorant of this operation but are they not responsible for the actions of the bureaucrats that they appoint to office? I believe they not only knew about this operation but also either conceived it or approved it. This action rises to the level of conspiracy to violate numerous laws, violations that would land me a very long prison sentence if I committed them. Am I to assume that it is permissible for the President of the United States, the Attorney General of the United States, and the Director of the BATFE to enter into a conspiracy to violate firearms laws and the Constitution? If I am bound by these laws certainly the top law enforcement officer of the nation and his boss, the president, should be subject to these same laws.

As a law abiding citizen of the United States, I ask you to do your duty as the members of Congress investigating this matter to file charges and order the arrest of Barak Obama, Eric Holder, and the Director of the BATFE Kenneth Melson for murder in the death of Agent Terry, conspiracy to violate firearms laws, conspiracy to cover up this illegal action, and treason for conspiracy to intentionally violate the provisions of the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America cannot stand by and allow the very highest officers in this nation to flagrantly violate the law, and neither can you.

The continued obfuscation and cover-up of this operation is a matter of grave concern to all people who wish to live in a free Republic. If these men are allowed to escape justice for their actions what does that say about the rule of law in our land? What does it say to people like me who obey the law and do our best to make this country great? If this goes unpunished does it mean that I can do as I wish and ignore any law that is inconvenient to me? That seems to be what Obama, Holder, Melson, and others have done, ignore the very law they swore to uphold. What kind of example does that set for others if they are above the law and are allowed to do as they please because they are better than I?

“I guess my question to you is will you do what is called for by law or will you sit around and wring your hands and do nothing? Will you do your duty as officers of the federal government to uphold the law and the Constitution or will you sit back and hold hearings that gain no information, and let this slide so as to not make waves? Do you have the courage to stand on law and order or will you turn a blind eye to evil and corruption? The whole nation is looking for elected officials who will stand by their oath of office and represent the Constitution and We the People of the United States of America, a quality that seems to be in very short supply these days. Will you be the ones we are looking for to show true leadership and integrity or will you be another cog in the wheel of that corruption? I know members of Congress aren’t very good at answering letters but I would very much appreciate an answer to this one. I think the American people deserve an answer to the questions I have posed here. Are you truly servants of the people?

“I am sending this letter to Sen. Charles Grassley, Sen. Tom Coburn, Sen. Jim Inhofe, Sen. Harry Reid, Sen. Mitch McConnell, Rep. Dan Boren, Rep. John Boehner, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, and Rep. Darrell Issa.

Dr. David Barton On Why President Obama Must Be Defeated in 2012

“I have begun today to see what I can do to make sure that he is a one-term President !

Why am I doing this ?
It is because:

– I do not share Obama’s vision or value system for America ;
I do not share his Abortion beliefs;
I do not share his radical Marxist’s concept of re-distributing wealth;
– I do not share his stated views on raising taxes on those who make $150,000+ (the ceiling has been changed three times since August);
– I do not share his view that America is Arrogant;
– I do not share his view that America is not a Christian Nation;
– I do not share his view that the military should be reduced by 25%;
– I do not share his view of amnesty and giving more to illegals than our American Citizens who need help;
I do not share his views on homosexuality and his definition of marriage;
I do not share his views that Radical Islam is our friend and Israel is our enemy who should give up any land;
– I do not share his spiritual beliefs (at least the ones he has made public);
I do not share his beliefs on how to re-work the healthcare system in America;
– I do not share his Strategic views of the Middle East; and
– I certainly do not share his plan to sit down with terrorist regimes such as Iran.
Bottom line: my America is vastly different from Obama’s, and I have a higher obligation to my Country and my GOD to do what is Right!
They have challenged capital punishment, the right to
bear firearms, and the most basic principles of our criminal code!
They have attacked one of the most fundamental of all Freedoms, the right of free speech!

Unite behind Obama? Never!
I am sure many of you who read this think that I am going overboard, but I refuse to retreat one more inch in favor of those whom I believe are the embodiment of Evil!” — Dr. David Barton

Mark of the Beast 666: Coming Soon to A Town Near You on Planet Earth! With Buying or Selling Forbidden Unless You Serve the Wicked One!

Revelation Chapter 6:1 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals and I heard one of the four living creatures saying, like a sound of thunder, “Come and see.” And I looked and saw a white horse and he who sat on it holding a bow. And a crown was given to him and he went out overcoming and to overcome.

WARNING TO PLANET EARTH!!!: Yeshayahu Chapters 6-35 and all prophecies in the Word of YHWH concerning the soon-approaching reign of Yahusha on earth for 1,000 years are a time for the sifting of people throughout the entire world, getting ready a Bride that is WITHOUT SPOT OR BLEMISH. All false teachers, preachers, and others — including those who continue to violate the warning of Yahusha not to add  to the prophecy of the book of Revelation or they shall receive the plagues, or take away from it and have your name taken out of the Book of Life — will be punished. Yahusha is coming with FIRE to devour those who devour the earth and its people. The Lake of Fire is the second death and they rest neither day nor night of those who take the soon-coming Mark of the Beast, where you may neither buy nor sell unless you have it, where also the antimessiah and his false prophet, along with Hell, Death and Satan are also eventually thrown, too. Thanks for listening, 777denny

And when He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come and see.” And another horse, fiery red, went out. And is was given to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth and that they should slay one another. And a great sword was given to him. And when He opened the third living creature say, “Come and see.” And I looked and saw a black horse and he who sat on it holding a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a day’s wage and three quarts of barley for a day’s wage. And do not harm the oil and the wine.” And when He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see.” And I looked and saw a pale horse. And he who sat on it had the Name Death and the grave followed with him. And authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with hunger and with death and by the beasts of the earth. And when He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the beings of those having been slain for the Word of Elohim and for the witness which they held., and they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Master, set-apart and true, until You judge and avenge our blood, on those who dwell on the earth?” And there was given to each one a white robe and they were told that they should rest a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brother, who would be killed as they were, was completed. And I looked when He opened the sixth seal and saw a great earthquake came to be. And the sun became black as sackcloth of hair and the moon became as blood. And the stars of the heavens fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its unripe figs, being shaken by a strong wind. And heaven departed like a scroll being rolled up and every mountain and island was moved out of its place. And the sovereigns of the earth and the great ones and the rich ones and the slave and every free one, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him sitting on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb, because the great day of His wrath has come and who is able to stand?”

Chapter 7:1 And after this I saw four messengers standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. And I saw another messenger coming up from the rising of the sun, holding the seal of the living Elohim. And he cried with a loud voice to the four messengers to whom it was given to harm the earth and the sea, saying, “Do not harm the earth, nor the sea nor the trees until we have sealed the servants of our Elohim upon their foreheads.” And I heard the number of those who were sealed, one hundred and forty-four thousand, sealed out of all the tribes of the children of Yisra’el: of the tribe of Yahudah twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Re’uben twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Menshsheh twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Shim’on twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Lewi twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Yissaskar twelve thousand were sealed, of the tribe of Binyamin twelve thousand were sealed. After this I looked and saw a great crowd which no one was able to count, out of all nations and tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, dressed in white robes and palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice saying, “Amen! The blessing and the esteem and the wisdom and the thanksgiving and the respect and the power and the might, to our Elohim forever and ever. Amen.” And one of the elders responded, saying to me, “Who are these dressed in white robes and where did they come from?” And I said to him, “Master (sir), you know And he said to me, “These are those coming out of the great distress, having washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Because of this they are before the throne of Elohim and serve Him day and night in His Dwelling Place. And He who sits on the throne shall spread His Tent over them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more, neither shall the sun strike them, nor any heat, because the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne shall shepherd them and lead them to fountains of waters of life. And Elohim shall wipe away every tear from their eyes.”  Chapter 8:3 And another messenger came and stood at the altar, holding a golden censer and much incense was given to him, that the should offer it with the prayers of the set-apart ones, went up before Elohim from the hand of the messenger. And the messenger took the censer and filled it with fire from the altar and threw it to the earth. And there were noises and thunders and lightnings and an earthquake. And the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound. And the first messenger sounded and there came to be hail and fire mixed with blood and they were thrown to the earth. And a third of the trees were burned up and all green grass was burned up. And the second messenger sounded and what looked like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea and a third of the sea became blood, and a third of the living creatures in the sea died and a third of the ships were destroyed. And the third messenger sounded and a great star fell from the heaven, burning like a torch and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the fountains of water, and the name of the star is called Wormwood. And a third of the waters became wormwood and many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter. And the fourth messenger sounded and a third of the sun was struck and a third of the moon and a third of the stars, so that a third of them were darkened. And a third of the day did not shine and likewise the night. And I looked and I heard and eagle flying in mid-heaven, crying with a loud voice, “Woe, woe, woe to those dwelling upon the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three messengers who are about to sound!” Chapter 9:1 And the fifth messenger sounded and I saw a star from the heavens which had fallen to the earth. And the key to the pit of the deep was given to it. And he opened the pit of the deep and smoke went up out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. And the sun was darkened, also the air, because of the smoke of the pit. And out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth and authority was given to them as the scorpions of the earth possess authority. And it was said to them tha they shall not harm the grass of the earth, or any green matter, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of Elohim upon their foreheads. And it was given to them that they should not kill them, but to torture them for five months. And their torture was like the torture of a scorpion when it strikes a man. And in those days men shall seek death and shall not find it. And they shall long to die, but death shall flee from them. And the locusts looked like horses prepared for battle and on their heads were crowns like gold and their faces were like the faces of men. And they had hair like women’s hair and their teeth were like lions’ teeth. And they had breastplates like breastplates of iron and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots of many horses running into battle. And they have tails like scorpions and stings. And in their tails is their authority to harm men five months. And they have over them a sovereign, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, but in Greek he has the Name Apolluon. The first woe is past. See, two woes are still coming after this. And the sixth messenger sounded and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before Elohim, saying to the sixth messenger who had the  trumpet, “Release the four messengers, those having been bound at the great river Euphrates.” And the four messengers, those having been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind. And the number of the armies of the horsemen was two hundred million and I heard the number of them. And this is how I saw the horses in the vision and those who sat on them, having breastplates of fiery red and hyacinth blue and sulphur yellow. And the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions and out of their mouths came fire and smoke and sulphur. A third of mankind was killed by these plagues, by the fire and the smoke and the sulphur which came out of their mouths. For the authority of the horses is in their mouth and in their tails, for their tails are like serpents, having heads. And with them they do harm. And the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship the demons and idols of gold and of silver and of brass and of stone and of wood, which are neither able to see, nor hear, nor to walk. And they did not repent of their murders, nor of their drug sorceries, nor of their whoring, nor of their thefts. Chapter 11:1 And a reed like a measuring rod was given to me and the messenger stood, saying, “Rise and measure the Dwelling Place of Elohim and the altar and those worshipping in it. But cast out the court which is outside the Dwelling Place, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the gentiles and they shall trample the set-apart city under foot for forty-two months. And I shall give unto my two witnesses and they shall prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clad in sackcloth.” These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that are standing before the Elohim of the earth. And if anyone wishes to harm them, fire comes out from their mouth and consumes their enemies. And if anyone wishes to harm them, he has to be killed in that way. These possess authority to shut the heaven, so that not rain falls in the days of their prophecy. And they possess authority over waters to turn them to blood and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they wish. And then they have ended their witness, the beast coming up out of the pit of the deep shall fight against them and overcome them and kill the, and their dead bodies lie in the street of the great city which spiritually is called Sedom and Mitsrayim, where also our Master was impaled, and some of the peoples and tribes and tongues and nations see their dead bodies for three and a half days and not allow their dead bodies to be placed into tombs, and those dwelling on the earth rejoice over them and exult. And they shall send gifts to each other, because these two prophets tortured those dwelling on the earth. And after the three and a half days a spirit of life from Elohim entered into them and they stood upon their feet and great fear fell on those who saw them. And they heard a lud voice from the heavens saying to them, “Come up here.” And they went up into the heavens in a cloud and their enemies saw them. And in that hour there came to be a great earthquake and a tenth of the city fell. And in the earthquake seven thousand men were killed and the rest became afraid and gave esteem to the Elohim of the heavens. The second woe is past and see, the third woe is coming speedily. And the seventh messenger sounded and there came to be loud voices in the heaven, saying, “The reign of this world has become the reign of out Master and of His Messiah and He shall reign forever and ever!” And the twenty-four elders sitting before Elohim on their thrones fell on their faces and worshipped Elohim, saying, “We give You thanks, O YHWH El Shaddai, the One who is and who was and who is coming, because You have taken Your great power and reigned. And the nations were enraged and Your wrath has come, the time of the dead to be judged and to give the reward to Your servants the prophets and to the set-apart ones and to those who fear Your Name, small and great and to destroy those who destroy the earth.” And the Dwelling Place of Elohim was opened in the heaven and the ark of His covenant was seen in His Dwelling Place. And there came to be lightnings and voices and thunders and an earthquake and great hail. Chapter 12:1 And a great sign was seen in the heaven: a woman clad with the sun, with the moon under her feet and on her head a crown of twelve stars. And being pregnant, she cried out in labour and in pain to give birth. And another sign was seen in the heaven: and see, a great, fiery dragon having seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads. And his tale draws a third of the stars of the heavens and throws them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she bore a male child, who was to shepherd all nations with a rod of iron. And her child was caught away to Elohim and to His throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by Elohim, to be nourished there one thousand two hundred and sixty days. And there came to be fighting in the heaven: Mika’el and his messengers fought against the dragon. And the dragon and his messengers fought, but were not strong enough, nor was a place found for them in the heavens any longer. And the great dragon was thrown out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who leads all the world astray. He was thrown to the earth and his messengers were thrown out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in the heaven, “Now have come the deliverance and the power and the reign of our Elohim and the authority of His Messiah, for the accuser of our brothers, who accused them before out Elohim day and night, has been thrown down. And they overcame him because of the Blood of the Lamb and because of the Word of their witness and they did not love their lives to the death. Because of this rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them! Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has little time.” And when the dragon saw that he had been thrown to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child. And the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, to fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. And out of his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river after the woman, to cause her to be swept away by the river. And the earth helped the woman and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the river which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. And the dragon was enraged with the woman and he went to fight with the remnant of her seed, those guarding the commands of Elohim and possessing the witness of OWYFZ Messiah.  Chapter 13:1 And I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns and on his horns ten crowns and on his heads names of blasphemy. And the beast I saw was like a leopard and his feet were like the feet of a bear and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his power and his throne and great authority. And I saw one of his heads, as having been slain to death and his deadly wound was healed. And all the earth marvelled after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon who have authority to the beast. And they worshipped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to fight with him?” And he was given a mouth speaking great matters and blasphemies and he was given authority to do so forty[two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemies against Elohim, to blaspheme His Name and His Tenet and those dwelling in the heavens. And it was given to him to fight with the set-apart ones and to overcome them. And authority was given to him over every tribe and tongue and nation. And all those dwelling on the earth, who names have not been written in the Book of life of the slain Lamb, from the foundation fo the world shall worship him. If anyone has an ear, let him hear. He who brings into captivity shall go into captivity, he who kills with the sword has to be killed with the sword. Here is the endurance of the belief of the set-apart ones. And I saw another feast coming up out of the earth and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he does great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from the heavens on the earth before men. And he leads astray those dwelling on the earth because of those signs which he was given to do before the beast, saying to those dwelling on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword, yet lived. And there was given to him to give spirit to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause to be killed as many as would not worship the image of the beast. And he causes all, both small and great and rich and poor and free and slave, to be given a mark upon their right hand or upon their foreheads, and that no one should be able to buy or sell except he that has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is the wisdom! He who has understanding, let him calculate the number of the beat, for it is the number of a man and his number is 666.

Yeshayahu Chapters 6-35: For I Have Heard From The Master YHWH Of Hosts, A Destruction Decreed Upon All The Earth. Give Ear And Hear My Voice, Listen And Hear My Word.

6)1. In the year that sovereign Uzziyahu died, I saw YHWH sitting on a throne, high and lifted up and the train of His robe filled the Hekal.
2. Above it stood seraphim. Each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet and with two he flew.
3. And one cried to another and said, “Set-apart, set-apart, set-apart is YHWH of hosts; all the earth is filled with His esteem!”
4. And the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out and the house was filled with smoke.
5. And I said, “Woe to me, for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips–for my eyes have seen the Sovereign, YHWH of hosts.”
6. And one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar.
7. And he touched my mouth with it and said, “See, this has touched your lips; your crookedness is taken away and your sin is covered.”
8. And I heard the voice of YHWH, saying, “Whom do I send and who would go for Us?” And I said, “Here am I; Send me.”
9. And He said, “Go and you shall say to this people, ”Hearing you hear, but you do not understand; and seeing, you see, but do not know.’
10. “Make the heart of this people fat and their ears heavy and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes and hear with their ears and understand with their heart and shall turn and be healed.”
11. Then I said, “YHWH, until when?” And He answered, “Until the cities are laid waste and without inhabitant and the houses are without a man and the land is laid waste, a ruin. יא
12. “and YHWH has removed men far away and the forsaken places be many in the midst of the land.
13. “But still, there is a tenth part in it and it shall again be for a burning, like a terebinth tree and like an oak, whose stump remains when it is cut down. The set-apart seed is its stump!”

2. And it was reported to the House of Dawid, saying, “Aram has set up camp in Ephrayim,” And his heart the heart of his people were moved as the trees of the forest are moved with the wind. ב.

4. “and say to him, ‘Take heed and be calm; do not fear or be faint-hearted for these two stubs of smoking fire brands, for the fierce displeasure of Retsin and Aram and the son of Remalyahu. ד.

9. “And the head of Ephrayim is Shomeron and the head of Shomeron is the son of Remalyahu. If you do not believe, you are not steadfast.”‘” ט.
10. And YHWH spoke again to Ahaz, saying, י.
11. “Ask a sign for yourself from YHWH your Elohim, make deep the request or make it high.” יא.
12. But Ahaz said,I do not ask nor try YHWH! יב.
13. And he said, “Hear now, O House of Dawid! Is it not enough that you weary men, that you weary my Elohim also? יג.

19. And they shall come and all of them shall rest in steep ravines and in the clefts of the rocks and on all weeds and in all pastures. יט.
20. In that day YHWH shall shave with a razor hired beyond the river–with the sovereign of Ashshur–the head and the hair of the legs and also remove the beard. כ.
21. And it shall be in that day that a man keeps alive a young cow and two sheep. כא.

24. With arrows and bows one shall go there, because all the land shall be thornbushes and weeds. כד.

2. “And let Me take reliable witnesses to record, Uriyah the priest and Zekaryahu son of Yaberekyahu.” ב.
3. And I went to the prophetess and she conceived and bore a son. And YHWH said to me, “Call his name Maher-Shalal-HashBaz; ג.
4. for before the child knows to cry, ‘My father’ and ‘My mother,’ the riches of Damascus and the spoil of Shomeron is taken away before the sovereign of Ashshur.” ד.
5. And YHWH spoke to me again, ה.
6. “In as much as these people refused the waters of Shiloah that flow softly and rejoice in Retsin and in Remalyahu’s son; ו.

9)1. But there is no gloom upon her who is distressed, as when at first He humbled the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali and afterward more heavily oppressed her, by the way of the sea, beyond the Yarden, in Galil of the nations.

6. We have heard of the pride of Mo’ab–very proud–of his pride, his arrogance and his rage. His boastings are not true. ו.
7. So Mo’ab wails for Mo’ab, everyone wails. For the raisin-cakes of Qir Hareseth they moan. They are utterly smitten. ז.
8. For the fields of Heshbon languish–the vine of Sibmah. The masters of the gentiles have broken down its choice plants, which have reached to Ya’zer and wandered through the wilderness. Her branches are stretched out, they are gone over the sea. ח.
9. Therefore, I bewail the vine of Sibmah, with the weeping of Ya’zer. I water you with my tears, O Heshbon and El’aleh, for acclamation have fallen over your summer fruit and your harvest. ט.
10. Gladness is taken away and joy from the orchard; in the vineyards there is no singing, nor shouting; No treaders tread out wine in their presses; I have made their acclamation cease. י.
11. Therefore my inward parts sound like a lyre for Mo’ab and my inner being for Qir Heres. יא.
12. And it shall be, when it is seen that Mo’ab has wearied herself on the high place, that she shall come to her set-apart place to pray, but not be able. יב.
13. This is the word which YHWH has spoken concerning Mo’ab since that time. יג.
14. But now YHWH has spoken, saying, “Within three years, as the years of a hired man, the esteem of Mo’ab is to be despised with all its great throng and the remnant be few, small and weak.”
17)1. The message concerning Damascus,”See, Damascus ceases to be a city and shall become a heap of ruins. א.
2. “The cities of Aro’er are forsaken, they are for flocks which shall lie down, with no one to frighten. ב.
3. “And the stronghold shall cease from Ephrayim and the reign from Damascus and the remnant of Aram be as the esteem of the sons of Yisra’el,” declares YHWH of hosts. ג.
4. “And in that day it shall be that the esteem of Ya’aqob wanes and the fatness of his flesh grows lean. ד.
5. “And it shall be as when the harvester gathers the grain and reaps the heads with his arm. And it shall be as he who gathers heads of grain in the Valley of Repha’im. ה.
6. “And gleanings grapes shall be left in it, like the shaking of an olive tree, two or three olives at the top of the uppermost branch, four or five in its most fruit-bearing branches,” declares YHWH Elohim of Yisra’el. ו.
7. In that day man shall look to his Maker and his eyes turn to the “Set-apart One of Yisra‘el. ז.
8. And he shall not look to the alters, the work of his hands; and he shall not see that which his own fingers made nor see that which his own fingers made nor the Asherim nor the sun-pillars. ח.
9. In that day his strong cities become like a forsaken forest and an uppermost branch, which they left because of the children of Yisra’el. And it shall become a ruin. ט.
10. Because you have forgotten the Elohim of your deliverance and have not remembered the Rock of your stronghold, therefore you shall plant pleasant plants and set out foreign seedings, י.
11. by day make your plant to grow and in the morning make your seed to flourish–but the harvest is a heap in the day of grief and incurable pain. יא.
12. Woe to the uproar of many people who make a noise like the roar of the seas and to the rushing of nations that make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters– יב.
13. nations rushing like the rushing of many waters. But He shall rebuke them and they shall flee far away and be chased like the chaff of the mountains before the wind, like whirling dust before the whirlwind. יג.
14. At eventide, look! Alarm! Before morning, it is no more. This is the portion of those who plunder us and the lot of those who rob us.
18)1. Woe to the land of shadowed with whirring wings, which is beyond the rivers of Kush, א.
2. which sends envoys by sea, even in vessels of reed on the waters, saying, “Go, swift messengers, to a nation tall and smooth-skinned, to a people dreaded from their beginning onward, a nation mighty and trampling, whose land the rivers divide.” ב.
3. All the inhabitants of the world and you that dwell on the earth: When a banner is lifted up on the mountains, look! And when a ram’s horn is blown, hear! ג.
4. For thus YHWH said to me, “I am still and I watch in My dwelling place like dazzling heat in sunshine, like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.” ד.
5. For before harvest, when the bud is perfect and the sour grape is ripening in the flower, then He shall cut off the twigs with pruning hooks and shall cut down and take away the spreading branches. ה.
6. They are left together for the mountain birds of prey and for the beasts of the earth. And the birds of prey shall summer on them and all the beasts of the earth winter on them. ו.
7. In that time a present shall be brought to YHWH of hosts from a people tall and smooth-skinned and from a people awesome from their beginning onward–a nation mighty and trampling, whose land the rivers have divided–to the place of the Name of YHWH of hosts, to  Mount Tsiyon.
19)1. The message concerning Mitsrayim. See, YHWH is riding on a swift cloud and He shall come into Mitsrayim. And the idols of Mitsrayim shall tremble at His presence and the heart of Mitsrayim melt in its midst. א.
2. “And I shall stir up Mitsrites against Mitsrites and they shall fight, each one against his brother and each one against his neighbour, city against city, reign against reign. ב.
3. “And the spirit of Mitsrayim shall vanish within them and I destroy their counsel. And they shall seek the idols and the mutterers, the mediums and the sorcerers. ג.
4. “And I shall deliver the Mitsrites into the hand of a cruel master and a fierce sovereign to rule over them,” declares the Master, YHWH of hosts. ד.
5. And waters shall fail from the sea and the river wasted and dried up. ה.
6. And the rivers shall stink and the streams shall be weak and dried up Reeds and rushes shall wither. ו.
7. Bare places by the River by the mouth of the River and every sown field by the River shall wither. It shall be driven away and be no more. ז.
8. And the fisherman shall lament and all those who cast hooks into the River shall mourn and they who spread nets on the waters shall pine away. ח.
9. And those who work in fine flax and those who weave fine fabric shall become ashamed. ט.
10. And its foundations shall be crushed, all the wage workers grieved in being. י.
11.The princes of Tso’an are only fools; the counsel of Pharoah’s wise ones have become senseless. How do you say to Pharaoh, “I am the son of the wise, the son of ancient sovereigns?” יא.
12. Where are they? Where are your wise men? Let them show you and let them know what YHWH of hosts has counselled against Mitsrayim. יב.
13. The princes of Tso’an have become fools, the princes of Noph are deceived. They, the corner-stone of her tribes, have led Mitsrayim astray. יג.
14. YHWH has mixed a perverse spirit in her midst. And they have led Mitsrayim astray in all her work, as a drunkard strays in his vomit. יד.
15. And there is no work for Mitsrayim, by either head or tail, palm branch or bulrush. טו.
16. In that day Mitsrayim shall become like women and tremble and fear because of the waving of the hand of YHWH of hosts which He waves over it. טז.
17. And the land of Yahudah shall be a fear to Mitsrayim, everyone who mention it fears for himself, because of the counsel of YHWH of hosts which He has counselled against it. יז.
18. In that day five cities in the land of Mitsrayim shall speak the language of Kena’an and swear by YHWH of hosts, one is called the City of destruction. יח.
19. In that day an alter to YHWH shall be in the midst of the land of Mitsrayim and a standing column to YHWH at its border. יט.
20. And it shall be for a sign and for a witness to YHWH of hosts in the land of Mitsrayim. When they cry to YHWH because of the oppressors. He sends them a Saviour and an Elohim and shall deliver them. כ.
21. And YHWH shall be known to Mitsrayim and the Mitsrites shall know YHWH in that day and make slaughtering and meal offering and shall make a vow to YHWH and pay it. כא.
22. And YHWH shall smite Mitsrayim, smite it and heal it. And they shall turn to YHWH  and He shall hear them and heal them. כב.
23. In that day there shall be a highway from Mitsrayim to Ashshur and Ashshur shall come into Mitsrayim and Mitsrayim into Ashshur and Mitsrayim shall serve with Ashshur. כג.
24. In that day Yisra’el shall be one of three with Mitsrayim and Ashshur, even a blessing in the midst of the earth, כד.
25. whom YHWH of hosts shall bless, saying, “Blessed is Mitsrayim My people and Ashshur the work of My hands and Yisra’el My inheritance.
20)1. In the year that Tartan came to Ashdod, when Sargon the sovereign of Ashshur sent him and he fought against Ashdod and took it, א.
2. at that same time YHWH spoke by means of Yeshayahu son of Amots, saying, “Go and remove the sackcloth from your body and take your sandals off your feet.” And he did so, walking naked and barefoot. ב.
3. And YHWH said, “As My servant Yeshayahu has walked naked and barefoot three years for a sign and a wonder against Mitsrayim and Kush, ג.
4. so does the sovereign of Ashshur lead away the captives of Mitsrayim and the exiles of Kush, young and old, naked and barefoot, with their buttocks uncovered–the shame if Mitsrayim. ד.
5. “And they shall be afraid and ashamed of Kush, their expectation and of Mitsrayim, their boast. ה.
6. “And the inhabitants of this coastland shall say in that day, ‘See, such is our expectation, wherever we flee for help to be delivered from the sovereign of Ashshur. And how do we escape?'”
21)1. The message concerning the Wilderness of the Sea. As whirlwinds in the South sweep on, so it comes from the wilderness, from an awesome land. א.
2. A distressing vision is revealed to me: the treacherous betrays and the ravager ravages. Go up, O Eylam! Besiege, O Media! All the groaning I bring to an end. ב.
3. Therefore my loins are filled with anguish; pangs have seized me, like the pangs of a woman in labour. I was distressed when I heard it; I was troubled when I saw it. ג.
4. My heart reeled, horror overwhelmed me; the night for which I longed He turned into fear for me. ד.
5. Prepare the table, spread the mat, eat and drink. Arise, you princes, anoint the shield! ה.
6.For YHWH has said this to me, “Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he sees.” ו.
7. And he saw a chariot with a pair of horsemen, a chariot of donkeys and a chariot of camels and he listened attentively, very attentively. ז.
8. Then he cried, “A lion, O YHWH! I stand continually on the watchtower in the daytime and I have sat at my post every night. ח.
9. “And see this, a chariot of men coming with a pair of horsemen!” And he spoke up and said, “Babel is fallen, is fallen! And all the carved images of her mighty ones He has broken to the ground.” ט.
10. Oh, my threshing and the grain of my floor! That which I have heard from YHWH of hosts, the Elohim of Yisra’el, I have declared to you. י.
11. The message concerning Dumah. He calls to me out of Se’ir, “Watchman, how much of the night is passed? Watchman, how much of the night has passed?” יא.
12. The watchman said, “Morning came and also the night. If you inquire, inquire. Come again!” יב.
13. The message concerning Arabia. In the forest in Arabia you stay, O you traveling companies of Dedannites. יג.
14. You who dwell in the land of Tema, bring water to him who is thirsty, meet the fugitive with bread. יד.
15. For they fled from the swords, from the drawn sword, from the bent bow and from the stress of battle. טו.
16. For thus YHWH has said to me, “Within a year, according to the year of a fired man, all the esteem of Qedar shall come to an end. טז.
17. “And the rest of the number of the archers, the mighty men of the people of Qedar, shall be few. For YHWH Elohim of Yisra’el has spoken.”
22)1. The message concerning the Valley of Vision. What troubles you now, that you have all gone up to the house-tops, א.
2. you who are filled with turmoils, a noisy city, a city of revelry? Your slain are not slain with the sword, nor the dead in battle. ב.
3. All your rulers have fled together; without a bow they were taken captive. All who are found in you are bound together, who have fled from afar. ג.
4. Therefore I said, “Look away from me, let me weep bitterly. Do not try to comfort me because of the ravaging of the daughter of my people.” ד.
5. For it is a day of uproar and treading down and perplexity by the Master YHWH of hosts in the Valley of Vision–breaking down of a wall and of crying to the mountain. ה.
6. And Eylam bore the quiver with chariots of men and horsemen and Qir bared the shield. ו.
7. And it shall be that your choicest valleys shall be filled with chariots and the horsemen shall take up positions at the gate. ז.
8. Then He removed the covering of Yahudah. And you looked in that day to the weapons of the House of the Forest. ח.
9. And you saw the breaches of the city of Dawid, that it was great. And you gathered together the waters of the lower pool. ט.
10. And you counted the houses of Yerushalayim and the houses you broke down to strengthen the wall. י.
11. And you dug a ditch between the two walls for the water of the old pool. But you have not looked to its Maker, nor have you seen Him who fashioned it long ago. יא.
12. And in that day the Master YHWH of hosts called for weeping and for mourning, for baldness and for girding with sackcloth. יב.
13. Then see! Joy and gladness, slaying oxen and killing sheep, eating meat and drinking wine, “Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die!” יג.
14.And it was revealed in my hearing by YHWH of hosts, “For this crookedness shall certainly not be pardoned until you die,” said the Master YHWH of hosts. יד.
15. Thus said the Master YHWH of hosts, “Go, come to this steward, to Shebnah, who is over the house and say, טו.
16. ‘What have you here and whom have you here, that you have hewn a tomb here, as he who hews himself a tomb on high, cutting out a resting place for himself in a rock? טז.
17. ‘See, YHWH is hurling you away, O man and is firmly grasping you, יז.
18. rolling you up tightly like a ball, into a wide land. There you are to die and there your esteemed chariots are to be the shame of your master’s house. יח.
19. ‘And I shall drive you from your office and you shall be ousted from your position. יט.
20. ‘And it shall be in that day, that I shall call My servant Elyaqim son of Hilqiyahu. כ.
21. ‘And I shall put your robe on him and strengthen him with your girdle and give your authority into his hand. And he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Yerushalayim and to the house of Yahudah. כא.
22. ‘And I shall place the key of the house of Dawid on his shoulder. And he shall open and no one shuts; and shall shut and no one opens. כב.
23. ‘And I shall fasten him like a peg in a steadfast place and he shall become a throne of esteem to his father’s house. כג.
24. ‘And they shall hang on him all the weight of his father’s house, the offspring and the offshoots, all vessels of small quantity, from the cups to all the jars. כד.
25. ‘In that day,’ declares YHWH of hosts, ‘the peg that is fastened in the steadfast place shall be removed and be cut down and fall and the burden that was on it shall be cut off. For YHWH has spoken.'”
23)1. The message concerning Tsor. Howl, you ships of Tarshish! For it has been destroyed, without house, without harbour. From the land of Kittim it has been revealed to them. א.
2. Be silent, you inhabitants of the coastland, you merchants of Tsidon, who passed over the sea, they filled you. ב.
3.  And on great waters the grain of Shihor, the harvest of the River, was her increase. And she was a market-place for the nations. ג.
4. Be ashamed, O Tsidon, for the sea has spoken, the stronghold of the sea, saying, “I have not laboured, nor brought forth children; neither have I reared young men, brought up maidens.” ד.
5. Like the report of Mitsrayim, they too are grieved at the report of Tsor. ה.
6. Pass over to Tarshish; wail, you inhabitants of the coastland! ו.
7. Is this your city of revelry, whose antiquity is from days of old, whose feet carried her far off to sojourn? ז.
8. Who has counselled this against Tsor, the crowning city, whose merchants are chiefs, whose traders are the esteemed of the earth? ח.
9.YHWH of hosts has counselled it, to defile the pride of all splendour and to shame all the esteemed of the earth.10. Overflow through your land like the River, O daughter of Tarshish; there is no more strength. ט.
11. He has stretched out His hand over the sea, He shook the reigns; YHWH has given a command against Kena’an to destroy its strongholds. י.
12. And He said, “Never again shall you exult, O you oppressed maiden daughter of Tsidon. Arise, pass over to Kittim, even there you shall find no rest.” יא.
13. See the land of the Chaldeans–this people did not exist. Ashshur founded it for wild beasts of the desert. They set up their siege-towers, they demolished her palaces and made her a ruin. יב.
14. Howl, you ships of Tarshish, for your stronghold is laid waste! יג.
יד.
15. And it that day it shall be that Tsor is forgotten seventy years, according to the days of one sovereign. At the end of seventy years it shall be to Tsor as in the song of the whore: טו.
16. “Take a lyre, go about the city, you forgotten whore; make sweet playing, sing many songs, so that you might be remembered. טז.
17. And at the end of seventy years it shall be that YHWH visits Tsor. And she shall return to her hire and commit whoring with all the reigns of the earth on the face of the soil. יז.
18. And her goods and her hire shall be set-apart for YHWH, not treasured nor laid up, for her gain is for those who dwell before YHWH, to eat sufficiently and for a choice covering.
24)1. See YHWH is making the earth empty and making it waste and shall overturn its surface and shall scatter abroad its inhabitants. א.
2. And it shall be–as with the people so with the priest, as with the servant so with the master. as with female servant so with her mistress, as with the buyer so with the seller, as with the lender so with the borrower, as with the creditor so with the debtor; ב.
3. the earth is completely emptied and utterly plundered, for YHWH has spoken this word. ג.
4.  The earth shall mourn and wither, the world shall languish and wither, the haughty people of the earth shall languish. ד.
5. For the earth has been defiled under its inhabitants, because they have transgressed the Torot, changed the law, broken the everlasting covenant. ה.
6. Therefore a curse shall consume the earth and those who dwell in it be punished. Therefore the inhabitants of the earth shall be burned and few men shall be left. ו.
7. The new wine shall fail, the vine shall languish, all those glad at heart shall sigh. ז.
8. The joy of the tambourine shall cease, the noise of those who rejoice shall end, the joy of the lyre shall cease. ח.
9. No more do they drink wine with a song, strong drink is bitter to those who drink it. ט.
10. The deserted city shall be broken down, every house shall be shut, no one enters. י.
11.There is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy shall be darkened, the gladness of the earth shall be gone. יא.
12. The city is left to ruins and the gate is stricken with destruction. יב.
13. For thus it is to be in the midst of the earth among the peoples, like the shaking of an olive tree, like the gleaning grapes when the grape harvest is done. יג.
14. They lift up their voice,they sing of the excellency of YHWH, they shall cry aloud from the sea. יד.
15. Therefore praise YHWH in the east, the Name of YHWH Elohim of Yisra’el in the coastlands of the sea. טו.
16. From the ends of the earth we shall hear songs, “Splendour to the righteous One!” But I say, “I waste away, I waste away! Woe to me! The treacherous betray, with treachery the treacherous betray.” טז.
17. Fear and the pit and the snare are upon you, O inhabitant or the earth. יז.
18. And it shall be that he who flees from the noise of the fear falls into the pit and he who comes up from the midst of the pit is caught in the snare. For the windows from on high shall be opened and the foundations of the earth be shaken. יח.
19. The earth shall be utterly broken, the earth shall be completely shattered, the earth shall be fiercely shaken. יט.
20. The earth shall stagger like a drunkard. And it shall totter like a hut and its transgression shall be heavy upon it and it shall fall and not rise again. כ.
21. And in that day shall be that YHWH punishes on high the host of exalted ones and on the earth the sovereigns of the earth. כא.
22. And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit and shall be shut up in the prison and be punished after many days. כב.
23. And the moon shall blush and the sun shall be ashamed, for YHWH of hosts shall reign on Mount Tsiyon and in Yerushalayim, and before His elders, in esteem!
25)1. O YHWH You are my Elohim. I exalt You, I praise Your Name, for You shall do a wonder–counsels of long ago, trustworthiness, truth. א.
2. For You shall make a city a heap, a walled city a ruin, a palace of foreigners to be a city no more–never to be rebuilt. ב.
3. Therefore a strong people praise You, the city of the ruthless nations fear You. ג.
4. For You shall be a refuge to the poor, a refuge to the needy in his distress, a shelter from the storm, a shade from the heat. For the spirit of the ruthless is like a storm against a wall. ד.
5. You subdue the noise of foreigners, as heat in a dry place; as heat in the shadow of a cloud, the singing of the ruthless is subdued. ה.
6. And in this mountain YHWH of hosts shall make for all people a feast of choice pieces, a feast of old wines, of choice pieces with marrow, of old wines, well refined. ו.
7. And He shall swallow up on this mountain the surface of the covering which covers all people and the veil which is spread over all nations. ז.
8. He shall swallow up death forever and the Master YHWH shall wipe away tears from all faces and take away the reproach of His people from all the earth. For YHWH has spoken. ח.
9. And it shall be said in that day, “See, this is our Elohim. We have waited for Him and He saves us. This is YHWH, we have waited for Him, let us be glad and rejoice in His deliverance.” ט.
10. For the hand of YHWH rests on this mountain and Mo’ab is trodden down under Him, as straw is trodden down in the water of a dunghill. י.
11. And He shall spread out His hands in their midst as he who swims spreads out his hands to swim and He shall bring down their pride together, with the skill of His hands. יא.
12. And the high stronghold of your walls He shall bring down, lay it low, levelled to the ground, down to the dust.
26)1. In that day this song is sung in the land of Yahudah, “We have a strong city–He sets up deliverance, walls and ramparts. א.
2. “Open the gates, let the righteous nation which guards the truth enter in. ב.
3. “The one steadfast of mind You guard in perfect peace, for he trusts in You. ג.
4. “Trust in YHWH forever, for in Yah, YHWH, is a rock of ages. ד.
5. “For He shall bring down those who dwell on high. He lays the exalted city low, He lays it low to the earth, He brings it down to the dust. ה.
6. “A foot tramples it down–feet of the poor, footsteps of the needy.” ו.
7. The path of the righteous is uprightness; O upright One, You weigh the course of the righteous. ז.
8. Also, in the path of Your right-rulings, O YHWH, we have waited for You; the longing of our being is for Your Name and for the remembrance of You. ח.
9. My being longs for You in the night, also, my spirit within me seeks You earnestly. For when Your right-rulings are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world shall learn righteousness. ט.
10.The wrong finds favour,yet he shall not learn righteousness; in the land of straight-forwardness he acts perversely and does not see the excellency of YHWH. י.
11. O YHWH, Your hand is high, they do not see. They see the ardour of the people and are ashamed; also, let the fire for Your adversaries consume them. יא.
12. O YHWH, You establish peace for us, for You have also done all our works in us. יב.
13. O YHWH our Elohim, other masters beside You have had rule over us; only in You do we make mention of Your Name. יג.
14. The dead do not live; the departed spirits do not rise. Therefore You have visited and destroyed them and made all their remembrance to perish. יד.
15. You shall increase the nation, O YHWH, You shall increase the nation; You are esteemed; You shall expand all the borders of the land. טו.
16.O YHWH, in distress they shall  visit You, they shall pour out a prayer when Your disciplining is upon them. טז.
17. As a woman with child and about to give birth writhes and cries out in her pain, so shall we be before Your face, O YHWH. יז.
18. We have conceived, we writhed in pain; we have given birth to wind. We have not accomplished deliverance in the earth, nor have the inhabitants of the world fallen. יח.
19. Let your dread  live, together with my dead body, let them arise. Awake and sing, you who dwell in dust, for Your dew is a dew of light and let the earth give birth to the departed spirits. יט.
20. Go, my people, enter your rooms and shut your doors behind you; hide yourself, as it were, for a little while, until the displeasure is past. כ.
21. For look, YHWH is coming out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their crookedness. And the earth shall disclose her blood and no longer cover her slain.
27)1. In that day YHWH with His severe sword, great and strong, punishes Liwiathan the fleeing serpent. Liwiathan that twisted serpent. And He shall slay the monster that is in the sea. א.
2. In that day sing to her, “A vineyard of red wine! ב.
3. “I, YHWH, do guard it, I water it every moment; lest any hurt it, I guard it night and day. ג.
4.”Wrath is not in Me. Who would set thornbushes and weeds against  Me in battle? I would go through them, I would burn them together. ד.
5. “Or let him take hold of My strength and make peace with Me. Let him make peace with Me!” ה.
6. Those who come He causes to take root in Ya’aqob. Yisra’el shall blossom and bud. And they shall fill the face of the world with fruit. ו.
7. Has He smitten him as He smote those who were smitting him? Or were they slain as those they had slaughtered? ז.
8. In measure, by sending her away, You contended with her. He shall take away by His rough wind in the day of the east wind. ח.
9. Therefore by this the crookedness of Ya’aqob is covered. And this is all the fruit of taking away his sin: when he makes all the stones of the altar like chalkstones that are beaten to dust–Asherim and sunpillars rise no more. ט.
10. For the city of defense is lonely, a home forsaken and left like a wilderness–there the calf feeds and there it lies down and shall consume its branches. י.
11. When its twigs are dry, they are broken off, women come and set them on fire. For it is a people of no understanding, therefore He who made them has no compassion on them and He who formed them shows them no favour. יא.
12. And in that day it shall be that YHWH threshes, from the channel of the River to the wadi of Mitsrayim and you shall be gathered one by one, O children of Yisra’el. יב.
13. And in that day it shall be that a great horn is blown and those who were perishing in the land of Ashshur and the outcasts in the land of Mitsrayim shall come and shall worship YHWH on the set-apart mountain, in Yerushalayim.
28)1. Woe to the proud crown of the drunkards of Ephrayim and to the fading flower of its splendid comeliness that is on the head of the fertile valley, to those who are overcome with wine! א.
2. See, YHWH has one who is mighty and strong, like a downpour of hail and a destroying storm, like a flood of mighty waters overflowing, who casts down to the earth with the hand. ב.
3. The proud crown of the drunkards of Ephrayim, is trampled under foot; ג.
4. and the fading flower of its splendid comeliness that is on the head of the fertile valley, like the first fruit before the summer, which, when one sees it, he eats it up while it is still in his hand. ד.
5. In that day YHWH of hosts is for a crown of splendour and a head-dress of comeliness to the remnant of His people, ה.
6. and a spirit of right-ruling to him who sits in right-ruling and strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate. ו.
7. And these too have gone astray through wine and through strong drink wandered about. Priest and prophet have gone astray through strong drink, they are swallowed up by wine, they wander about through strong drink, they go astray in vision, they stumble in right-ruling. ז.
8. For all tables shall be will be covered with vomit, no place without filth. ח.
9. Whom would He teach knowledge? And whom would He make to understand the message? Those weaned from milk, those taken from the breasts! ט.
10. For is: command upon command, command upon command, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little. י.
11. For with a jabbering lip and a foreign tongue He speaks to this people, יא.
12. To whom He said, “This is the rest, give rest to the weary,” and, “This is the refreshing.” But they would not  hear. יב.
13. But the Word of YHWH was to them, “Command upon command, command upon command, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little,” so that they go and shall stumble backward and be broken and snared and taken captive. יג.
14. Therefore hear the Word of YHWH, you men of scorn, who rule this people who are in Yerushalayim, יד.
15. because you have said, “We have made a covenant with death and with the grave we have effected a vision. When the overflowing scourge passes through, it does not come to us, for we have made lying our refuge and under falsehood we have hidden ourselves.” טו.
16. Therefore thus said the Master YHWH, “See, I am laying in Tsiyon a stone for a foundation, a tried stone, a precious corner-stone, a settled foundation. He who trusts shall not hasten away. טז.
17. “And I shall make right-ruling the measuring line and righteousness the plummet. And the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lying and the waters overflow the hiding place. יז.
18. “And your covenant with death shall be annulled and your vision with the grave not stand. When an overflowing scourge passes through, then you shall be trampled down by it. יח.
19. “As often as it passes through it shall take you, for is shall pass through every morning and by day and by night. And it shall be only trembling to understand the message.” יט.
20. For the bed shall be too short for a man to stretch out on and the covering shall be too narrow to wrap himself in it. כ.
21. For YHWH rises up as at Mount Peratsim and He is wroth as at the Valley of Geb’on, to do His work, His strange work and to do His deed, His strange deed. כא.
22. And now, do not be scoffers, lest your bonds be made strong. For I have heard from the Master YHWH of hosts, a destruction decreed upon all the earth.   כב.
23. Give ear and hear my voice, listen and hear my Word. כג.
24. Does the ploughman keep ploughing all day to sow? Does he keep turning his soil and breaking the clods? כד.
25. When he has leveled its surface, does he not sow the caraway and scatter the cummin, plant the wheat in rows, the barley in the appointed place and the spelt in its place? כה.
26. For He instructs him for right-ruling, his Elohim teaches him. כו.
27. For caraway is not threshed with a threshing sledge, nor is a wagon wheel rolled over cummin, but caraway is beaten out with a stick and cummin with a rod. כז.
28. Grain is crushed, so one does not go on threshing it forever, nor break it with his wagon wheel, nor crush it with his horsemen. כח.
29. Even this has come from YHWH of hosts, who did wonders in counsel, who made wisdom great.
29)1. Woe to Ari’el, to Ari’el, the city where Dawid dwelt! Add year to year, let festivals come around. א.
2. “And I shall distress Ari’el and there shall be mourning and sorrow and it shall be to Me as Ari’el. ב.
3. “And I shall encamp against you all around, I shall lay siege against you with a mound and I shall raise siegeworks against you. ג.
4. “And you shall be brought low and speak out of the ground and your speech shall be low, out of the dust. And your voice shall be like a medium’s, out of the ground and your speech whisper out of the dust. ד.
5. “But the crowd of those strange to you shall be like fine dust and the crowd of the ruthless ones as chaff blowing away. And it shall be in an instant, suddenly!” ה.
6. You shall be visited by YHWH of hosts with thunder and earthquake and great noise, with whirlwind and storm and flame of devouring fire. ו.
7. Then the crowd of all the gentiles who fight against Ari’el, even all who fight against her and her stronghold and distress her, shall be as a dream of a night vision. ז.
8. And it shall be as when a hungry man dreams and see, he eats; but he awakes and his being is empty; or as when a thirsty man dreams and see, he drinks; but he awakes and see, he is faint and his being is longing. Thus shall the crowd of all the gentiles be who fight against Mount Tsiyon. ח.
9. Pause and wonder! blind yourselves and be blind! They are drunk, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink. ט.
10. For YHWH has poured out on you the spirit of deep sleep and has closed your eyes, the prophets. And He covered your heads, the seers. י.
11. And the entire vision is to you like the words of a book that is sealed, which men give to one who knows books, saying, “Read this, please.” And he said, “I am unable, for it is sealed. יא.
12. And the book is given to one does not know books, saying, “Read this, please.” And he said, “I have not known books.” יב.
13. And YHWH says, “Because this people has drawn near with its mouth and with its lips they have esteemed Me and it has kept its heart far from Me and their fear of Me has become a command of men that is taught! יג.
14. “Therefore, see, I am again doing a marvellous work among this people, a marvellous work and a wonder. And the wisdom of their wise men shall perish and the understanding of their clever men shall be hidden.” יד.
15. Woe to those who seek deep to hide their counsel far from YHWH and their works are in the dark: they say, “Who sees us?” and “Who knows us?” טו.
16. How perverse of you! Should the potter be reckoned as the clay? Should what is made say of its Maker, “He did not make me?” And what is formed say of Him who formed it, “He did not understand?” טז.
17. Is it not yet a little while and Lebanon shall be turned into garden land and garden land be reckoned as a forest? יז.
18. And in that day the deaf shall hear the words of the book and the eyes of the blind shall see out of gloom and out of darkness. יח.
19. And the meek ones shall increase their joy in YHWH and the poor  among men rejoice in the Set-apart One of Yisra’el. יט.
20. For the ruthless one is brought to naught, the scorner is consumed and all who watch for evil shall be cut off, כ.
21. those who make a man to sin in word and lay a snare for him who reproves in the gate and turn aside the righteous with empty reasoning. כא.
22. Therefore thus says YHWH, who ransomed Abrahim, concerning the house of Ya’aqob, “Ya’aqob is no longer put to shame, no longer does his face grow pale. כב.
23. “For when he sees his children, the work of My hands, in his midst, they shall set-apart My Name and set-apart the set-apart One of Ya’aqob and fear the Elohim of Yisra’el. כג.
24. “And those who went astray in spirit shall come to understanding and the grumblers accept instruction.”
30)1. “Woe to the stubborn children,” declares YHWH, “to make counsel, but not from Me and to devise plans, but not of My Spirit, in order to add sin to sin; א.
2. who are setting out to go down to Mitsrayim and have not asked My mouth, to be strengthened in the strength of Pharoah and to seek refuge in the shadow of Mitsrayim! ב.
3. “And the strength of Pharaoh shall become your shame and the refuge in the shadow of Mitsrayim your confusion. ג.
4. “For his princes were at Tso’an and his messengers came to Hanes. ד.
5. “They were all ashamed of a people who do not profit them, not for help or profit, but a shame and also a reproach.” ה.
6. The message concerning the beasts of the South. Through a land of trouble and distress, from which came the lioness and lion, the adder and fiery flying serpent, they convey their riches on the backs of young donkeys and their treasures on the humps of camels, to an unprofitable people, ו.
7. even Mitsrayim, whose help is vain and empty. Therefore I have called her RahabHem-Shebeth. ז.
8. And go, write it before them on a tablet and inscribe it on a scroll, that it is for a latter day, a witness forever: ח.
9. that this is a rebellious people, lying children, children who refuse to hear the Torah of YHWH, ט.
10. Who said to the seers, “Do not see,” and to the prophets,Do not prophesy to us what is right. Speak to us what is smooth, prophesy deceits. י.
11. Turn aside from the way, swerve from the path, cause the Set-apart One of Yisra’el to cease from before us.” יא.
12. Therefore thus said the Set-apart One of Yisra’el, “Because you despise this word and trust in oppression and perverseness and rely on them, יב.
13. therefore this crookedness is to you like a breach ready to fall, a bulge in a high wall, whose breaking comes suddenly, swiftly.” יג.
14. And He shall break it like the breaking of the potter’s vessel, which is broken in pieces, without sparing, so that there is not found among its fragments a sherd to take fire from the hearth, or to take water from the cistern. יד.
15. For thus said the Master YHWH, the set-apart One of Yisra’el, “In returning and rest you are saved, in stillness and trust is your strength.” But you would not, טו.
16. and you said, “No, for we flee upon horses,” therefore you flee! And, “We ride on swift horses, ” Therefore those who pursue you are swift! טז.
17. One thousand flee at the rebuke of one; at the rebuke of five you shall flee until you are left as a pole on top of a mountain and as a sign on a hill. יז.
18. And therefore YHWH shall wait, to show you favour. And therefore He shall be exalted, to have compassion on you. For YHWH is an Elohim of right-ruling. Blessed are all those who wait for Him. יח.
19. For the people shall dwell in Tsiyon at Yerushalayim, you shall weep no more. He shall show much favour to you at the sound of your cry; when He hears, He shall answer you. יט.
20. Though YHWH gave you bread of adversity and water of affliction, your Teacher shall no longer be hidden. But your eyes shall see your Teacher, כ.
21. and your ears hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the Way, walk in it.” whenever you turn to the right, or whenever you turn to the left. כא.
22. And you shall defile the covering of your graven images of silver and plating of your moulded images of gold. You shall throw them away as a menstrual cloth and say to them, “Be gone!” כב.
23. And He shall give the rain for your seed with which you sow the ground and bread of the increase of the earth. And it shall be fat and rich, your cattle grazing in an enlarged pasture in that day, כג.
24. and the oxen and the young donkeys that work the ground eat seasoned fodder winnowed with shovel and fan. כד.
25. And on every high mountain and on every high hill there shall be rivers and streams of waters, in the day of great slaughter, when the towers fall. כה.
26.And the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun and the light of the sun be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that YHWH binds up the breach of His people and heals the wound of His blows. כו.
27. See, the Name of YHWH is coming from afar, burning with His wrath and heavy smoke. His lips shall be filled with rage and His tongue be as a devouring fire; כז.
28. and His breath shall be as an overflowing stream, which reaches up to the neck, to sift the nations with a sieve of falsehood and a misleading bridle on the jaws of the peoples. כח.
29. Let the song be to you as in a night set-apart for a festival and gladness of heart as he who is going with a flute, to come into the mountain of YHWH, to the Rock of Yisra’el. כט.
30. And YHWH shall cause His excellent voice to be heard and show the coming down of His arm, with raging wrath and the flame of a consuming fire, with scattering, downpour and hailstones. ל.
31. For through the voice of YHWH Ashshur is broken down, with a rod He smites. לא.
32. And every passage of the ordained staff which YHWH lays on him, shall be with tambourines and lyres, when He shall fight with it, battling with a brandishing arm. לב.
33. For Topheth was ordained of old, even for the sovereign it has been prepared. He has made it deep and large, its fire pit with much wood; the breath of YHWH, as a stream of burning sulphur, is burning in it!
31)1. Woe to those who go down to Mitsrayim for help and rely on horses, who trust in chariots because they are many and in horsemen because they are very strong, but who do not look to the Set-apart One of Yisra’el, nor seek YHWH! א.
2. And He also is wise and has brought evil and has not turned aside His words. And He shall rise up against the house of evil-doers and against the help of workers of wickedness. ב.
3. And the Mitsrites are men and not El. And their horses are flesh and not spirit. And when YHWH stretches out His hand, both he who helps shall stumble and he who is helped shall fall. And they shall allfall, together. ג.
4. For this is what YHWH has said to me, “As a lion roars and a young lion over his prey, though a band of shepherds is called out against him, he is not afraid of their voice nor disturbed by their noise, so YHWH of hosts shall come down to fight upon Mount Tsiyon and upon its hill. ד.
5. Like hovering birds, so does YHWH of hosts protect Yerushalayim–protecting and delivering, passing over and rescuing.” ה.
6. Turn back to Him from whom the children of Yisra’el have deeply fallen away. ו.
7. For in that day, let each man reject his idols of silver and his idols of gold, which your own hands have made for yourselves, as a sin. ז.
8. “And Ashshur shall fall by a sword not of man and a sword not of mankind shall devour him. But he shall flee from the sword and his young men shall become slave labour, ח.
9. and his strength pass away because of fear and his commanders shall be afraid of the banner,” declares YHWH, whose light is in Tsiyon and whose furnace is in Yerushalayim.
32)1. See, a sovereign shall reign in righteousness and rulers rule in right-ruling. א.
2. And each one shall be as a hiding place from the wind and a shelter from the downpour, as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land. ב.
3. And the eyes of those who see are not dim and the ears of those who hear listen. ג.
4. And the heart of the rash understand knowledge and the tongue of the stammerers hurries to speak plainly. ד.
5. A fool is no longer called noble, nor the scoundrel said to be respectable; ה.
6. For a fool speaks folly and his heart works wickedness: to practise filthiness and to speak against YHWH that which misleads, to starve the being of the hungry and to withhold the drink from the thirsty. ו.
7. And the methods  of the scoundrel are evil–he has devised wicked plans to destroy the poor with words of falsehood, even when the needy pleads for right-ruling. ז.
8. But the generous one devises what is generous and by generous deeds he rises up. ח.
9. Rise up, you women who are at ease, hear my voice; rise up you complacent daughters, listen to my speech. ט.
10. In little more than a year you shall be troubled, you complacent women; for the grape harvest shall fail, the ingathering shall not come. י.
11. Tremble, you women who are at ease; be troubled, you complacent ones; strip yourselves, make yourself bare and gird sackcloth on your waists. יא.
12. Lament upon the breasts for the pleasant fields, for the fruit-bearing vine. יב.
13. Weeds and thornbushes come up over the ground of My people, indeed, over all the houses of joy, the city of revelry; יג.
14. for the palace is abandoned, the crowded city deserted. Hill and watchtower serve as caves forever, a joy of wild donkeys, a pasture of flocks; יד.
15. until the Spirit is poured upon us from on high and the wilderness shall become garden-land and the garden land be reckoned as a forest. טו.
16. Then the right-ruling shall dwell in the wilderness and righteousness remain in the garden-land. טז.
17. The work of righteousness shallbe peace and the service of righteousness be rest and safety forever.18. And My people shall dwell in a home of peace and in safe dwellings and in undisturbed resting places,19. even when hail shall fall, felling the forest and the city be brought low in humiliation.20. Blessed are you who sow beside all waters, who send out the foot of the ox and the donkey.
33)1. Woe to you ravager, while you have not been ravaged and you treacherous, while they have not betrayed you! When you have ceased ravaging, you shall be ravaged. And when you stop betraying, they shall betray you. א.
2. O YHWH, show us favour, for we have waited for You. Be their arm every morning, our deliverance also in time of distress. ב.
3. At the noise of the rumbling the people shall flee. When You lift Yourself up, the gentiles shall be scattered. ג.
4. And Your plunder shall be gathered like the gathering of the caterpillar; as locusts rush about, they rush upon them. ד.
5. YHWH is exalted, for He dwells on high; He has filled Tsiyon with right-ruling and righteousness. ה.
6. And He shall be the trustworthiness of your times, a wealth of deliverance, wisdom and knowledge. The fear of YHWHthat is His treasure. ו.
7. See, the brave ones shall cry outside, the messengers of peace weep bitterly. ז.
8. The highways shall be deserted, the wayfaring man shall have ceased. He has broken the covenant, he has despised the cities, he respected no man. ח.
9. The earth shall mourn and languish. Lebanon shall be ashamed. Sharon shall be withered like a desert and Bashan and Karmel be shaking. ט.
10. “Now I rise up,” declares YHWH. “Now I am exalted, now I am lifted up. י.
11. “You conceive chaff, you bring forth stubble, your spirit devours you like fire. יא.
12. “And peoples shall be like the burnings of lime, like thorns cut up they are burned in the fire. יב.
13. “You who are afar off, hear what I shall do; and you who are near, know My might.” יג.
14. Sinners in Tsiyon shall be afraid; trembling shall grip the defiled ones, “Who of us shall dwell with the devouring fire? Who of us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?” יד.
15. He who walks righteously and speaks what is straight, he who rejects the gain of oppressions, who keeps his hands from accepting bribes, who stops his ears from hearing of bloodshed and shuts his eyes from seeing evil טו.
16. he shall inhabit the heights; strongholds of rocks be his refuge. His bread shall be given him, his water be steadfast. טז.
17. Your eyes shall see the Sovereign in His comeliness, see a land that is far off. יז.
18. Your heart ponders fear, “Where is the scribe? Where is he who weights? Where is he who counts the towers?” יח.
19. No longer shall you see a fierce people, a people of too deep a lip to hear, of a jabbering tongue no one understands. יט.
20. See Tsiyon, the city of our appointed time; your eyes shall see Yerushalayim, an undisturbed home, a tent not taken down. Its stakes are never removed, nor any of its cords broken. כ.
21. But there, great is YHWH for us; a place of broad rivers, streams, in which no boat with oars sails, nor big ships pass by– כא.
22. for YHWH is our Judge, YHWH is our Lawgiver, YHWH is our Sovereign, He saves us כב.
23. your ropes shall be slack, they do not strengthen their mast, they shall not spread the sail. Then the prey of great plunder shall be divided, the lame shall take the prey. כג.
24. Neither shall the inhabitant say, “I am sick.” The people who dwell in it is forgiven their crookedness!
34)1. Come near you gentiles, to hear. And listen, you people! Let the earth hear and all that is in it, the world and all its offspring. א.
2. For the displeasure of YHWH is against all the gentiles, and His wrath against all their divisions. He shall put them under the ban, He shall give them over to the slaughter, ב.
3. and their slain be thrown out and their stench rise from their corpses. And mountains shall be melted with their blood. ג.
4. And all the host of the heavens shall rot away. And the heavens shall be rolled up like a scroll and all their host fade like a leaf fading on the vine and like the fading one of a fig tree. ד.
5. “For My sword shall be drenched in the heavens. Look, it comes down on Edom and on the people of My curse, for judgment. ה.
6. “The sword of YHWH shall be filled with blood, it shall be made overflowing with fatness and with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams. For YHWH has a slaughtering in Botsrah and a great slaughter in the land of Edom. ו.
7. “And wild oxen shall come down with them and young bulls with bulls. And their land shall be drenched with blood and their dust made fat with fatness.” ז.
8. For it is the day of the vengeance of YHWH, the year of recompense for the cause of Tsiyon. ח.
9. And its streams shall be turned into tar and its dust into sulphur and its land shall become burning tar, ט.
10. that is not quenched night or day, its smoke going up forever. From generation to generation it lies waste, no one passes through it forever and ever, י.
11. so that the pelican and the porcupine possess it, also the owl and the raven dwell in it. And He shall stretch out over it the line of formlessness and stones of emptiness. יא.
12. Its caves, with no one in them, is called a reign, but all its rulers have vanished. יב.
13. And thorns shall come up in its palaces, nettles and brambles in its strongholds. And it shall be a home for jackals, a courtyard for ostriches. יג.
14. And the wild beasts of the desert shall also meet with the jackals and the shaggy goat call to its companion. The night creature shall also settle there and shall find for herself a place of rest. יד.
15. The arrow snake shall nest there and lay eggs and hatch and gather them under her shadow. There too the vultures shall gather, each with its mate. טו.
16. Search from the book of YHWH and read: not one of these shall be missing, not one shall be without a mate, for He has commanded my mouth. And His Spirit shall gather them. טז.
17. And He shall cast the lot for them and His hand shall divide it among them with a measuring line–they posses it forever, from generation to generation they dwell in it.
35)1. Let the wilderness and the dry place be glad for them and let the desert rejoice and blossom as the rose. א.
2. It blossoms much and rejoices, even with joy and singing. The esteem of Lebanon shall be given to it, the excellence of Karmel and Sharon. They shall see the esteem of YHWH, the excellency of our Elohim. ב.
3. Strengthen the weak hands and make firm the week knees. ג.
4. Say to those with anxious heart, “Be strong, do not fear! See, your Elohim comes with vengeance, with the recompense of Elohim. He is coming to save you.” ד.
5. Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened and the ears of the deaf be opened. ה.
6. Then the lame shall leap like a deer and the tongue of the dumb sing, because waters shall burst forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert. ו.
7. And the parched ground shall become a pool and the thirsty land springs of water–in the home for jackals, where each lay, grass with reeds and rushes. ז.
8. And there shall be a highway and a way and it shall be called “The Way of Set-apartness.” The unclean does not pass over it, but it is for those who walk the way and no fools wander on it. ח.
9. No lion is there, nor any ravenous beast go up on it, it is not found there. But the redeemed shall walk there. ט.
10. And the ransomed of YHWH shallreturn and enter Tsiyon with singing, with everlasting joy on their heads. They shall obtain joy and gladness and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

continued with Yeshayahu Chapters #60-66

Yeshayahu Chapters 1-5

1)1. The vision of Yeshayahu som of Amots, which he saw concerning Yahudah and Yerushalayim in the days of Uzziyahu, Yotham, Ahaz, Hizqiyahu–sovereigns of Yahudah.

2.Hear, O heavens and listen, O earth! For YHWH has spoken. “I  have reared and brought up children, but they have transgressed against Me.

3. An ox knows its owner and a donkey its master’s crib–Yisra’el does not know, My people have not understood.”

4. Alas, sinning nation, a people loaded with crookedness, a seed of evil-doers, sons acting corruptly! They forsaken YHWH, they have provoked the Set-apart One of Yisra’el, they went backward.

5. Why should you be beaten any more? You continue in apostasy! All the head is sick and all the heart faints.

6. From the sole of the foot, to the head, there is not soundness in it–wounds and bruises and open sores, they have not been closed or bound up, or soothed with ointment.

7. Your land is laid waste, your cities are burned with fire, strangers devour your land in your presence. And it is laid waste, as overthrown by strangers.

8. And the daughter of Tsiyon is left as a booth in a vineyard, as a hut in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city.

9. Unless YHWH of hosts had left to us a small remnant, we would have become like Sedom, we would have been made like Amorah!

10. Hear the word of YHWH, you rulers of Sedom; give ear to the Torah of our Elohim, you people of Amorah.

11 “Of what us to Me are your many slaughterings?” declares YHWH. “I have had enough of burnt offerings of rams and the fat of fed beasts. I do not delight in the blood of bulls, or of lambs or goats.

12. “When you come to appear before Me, who has required this from your hand, to trample My courtyards?

13. “Stop bringing futile offerings, incense, it is an abomination to Me. New Moons, Sabbaths, the calling of meetings–I am unable to bear unrighteousness and assembly.

14. “My being hates your New Moons and your appointed times, they are a trouble to Me, I am weary of bearing them.

15. “And when you spread out your hands, I hide My eyes from you; even though you make many prayers, I do not hear. Your hands have become filled with blood,

16. “Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean, put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes. Stop doing evil!

16. Learn to do good! Seek right-ruling, reprove the oppressor, defend the fatherless, plead for the widow.

17. “Come now and let us reason together,” says YHWH. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow, though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

18. “If you submit and obey, you shall eat the good of the land;

19. but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword,” for the mouth of YHWH has spoken.

21. How the steadfast city has become a whore! I have filled it with right-ruling, righteousness lodged in it, but now murderers.

22. Your silver has become dross, your wine is mixed  with water.

23. Your rulers are stubborn and companions of thieves. Everyone loves bribes and runs after rewards. They do not defend the fatherless, nor does the cause of the widow reach them.

24. “Therefore the Master declares, YHWH of hosts, the Elohim of Yisra’el, “Ah, I shall be eased of My adversaries and I shall be avenged of My enemies.

25. “And I shall turn My hand against you and shall refine your dross as with lye and shall remove all your alloy.

26. “And I shall give back your judges as at the first and your counselors as at the beginning. After this you shall be called the city of righteousness, a steadfast city.”

27. Tsiyon shall be redeemed with right-ruling and her returning ones with righteousness.

28. And the destruction of transgressors and of sinners is together and those who forsake YHWH shall be consumed.

29. For they shall be ashamed of the terebinth trees which you have desired. And you shall be embarrassed because of the gardens which you have chosen.

30. For you shall be as a terebinth whose leaf fades and as a garden that has not water.

31. The strong shall be for tow and his work for a spark. And both shall burn together, with no one to extinguish.

2)1. The word that Yeshayahu the son of Amots saw concerning Yahudah and Yerushalayim.

2. And it shall be in the latter days that the mountains of the House of YHWH is established on the top of the mountains and shall be exalted above the hills. And all nations shall flow to it.

3. And many peoples shall come and say, “Come and let’s go up to the mountain of YHWH, to the House of the Elohim of Ya’aqob and let Him teach us His ways and let’s walk in His paths, for out of Tsiyon comes forth the Torah and the Word of YHWH from Yerushalayim.”

4. And He shall judge between the nations and shall reprove many peoples. And they shall beat their swords into ploughshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither teach battle any more.

5. O house of Ya’aqob, come and let us walk in the light of YHWH.

6. For You have forsaken Your people, the house of Ya’aqob, because they have been filled from the East and practise magic like the Philistines and they are pleased with the children of foreigners.

7. And their land is filled with silver and gold and there is no end to their treasures. And their land is filled with horses and there is no end to their chariots.

8. And their land is filled with idols; they bow themselves to the work of their own hands, to what their own fingers have made.

9. And the lowly bows down and the high is humbled; therefore you do not forgive them.

10. Enter into the rock and hide in the dust, because of the fear of YHWH and the splendour of His excellency.

11. The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, the pride of men shall be bowed down and YHWH alone shall be exalted in that day.

12. For YHWH of hosts has a day against all that is proud and lofty, against all that is lifted up, so that is brought low;

13. and against all the cedars of Lebanon that are high and lifted up and against all the oaks of Basham;

14. and against all the high mountains and against all the hills that are lifted up;

15. and againstevery lofty tower and against every strong wall;

16. and against all the ships of Tarshish and against all the desirable craft.

17. And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down and the pride of men shall be brought low. And YHWH alone shall be exalted in that day,

18. and the idols completely pass away.

19. And they shall go into the holes of the rocks and into the caves of the earth, from dread of YHWH and the splendour of His excellency, when He arises to shake the earth mightily.

20. In that day man shall throw away his idols of silver an his idols of gold, which they made, each for himself to worship, to the moles and bats,

21. to go into the clefts of the rocks and into the crags of the rugged rocks, because of the fear of YHWH and the splendour of His excellency, when He arises to shake the earth mightily.

22. Cease from man, whose breath is in his nostrils, for in what is he to be reckoned upon?

3)1. For look, the Master, YHWH of hosts, is turning aside from Yerushalayim and from Yahudah the stock and the store, all the supply of bread and all the supply of water;

2. the mighty man and the man of battle, the judge and the prophet and the diviner and the elder;

3. the commander of fifty and the highly respected man and the counsellor and the skilled craftsman and the clever enchanter.

4. “And I shall make youths their heads and children shall rule over them.

5. “The people shall exert pressure, man on man, man on his neighbour; the young rise up against the older and the lightly esteemed againstthe highly esteemed.”

6. When a man takes hold of his brother in the house of his father, by the garment and say, “Come, be a chief over us and let this ruin be under your hand,

7. he shall swear in that day, saying, “I am not a healer, for in my house is neither bread nor garment; do not make me a chief of the people.”

8. For Yerushalayim has stumbled and Yahusha has fallen, because their tongue and their doings are against YHWH, to provoke the eyes of His esteem.

9. The look on their faces witnesses against them and they declare their sin as Sedom; they do not hide it. Who to their being! For they have brought evil upon themselves.

10. “Say to the righteous it is well, for they eat the fruit of their doings.

11. “Woe to the wrong–evil! For the reward of his hand is done to him.

12. “My people! Youths exert pressure on them and women rule over them. O My people! Your leaders lead you astray and swallow the way of your paths.”

13. YHWH shall stand up to plead and is standing to judge the peoples.

14. YHWH enters into judgment with the elders of His people and its heads, “It is you who have eaten up the vineyard, the plunder of the poor is in your houses.

15. What do you mean by crushing My people and grinding the faces of the poor?” declares the Master, YHWH of hosts.

16. And YHWH says, “Because the daughter of Tsiyon are haughty and walk with outstretched necks and seductive eyes, walking and mincing as they go, making a jingling with their feet,

17. therefore YHWH shall smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Tsiyon and YHWH expose their nakedness.”

18. In that day YHWH takes away the finery of the anklets, headbands and the crescents,

19. the pendants, bracelets and the veils,

20. the head-dresses, let ornaments, sashes, perfume bottles and the amulets,

21. the rings and the nose jewels,

22. the costly robes, cloaks, shawls and the purses,

23. the mirrors and the fine linen and the turbans and the large veils.

24. And it shall be: Instead of a sweet fragrance, a smell of decay; and instead of a belt, a rope; and instead of well-set hair, baldness; and instead of a festal robe, a girding of sackcloth; and branding instead of loveliness.

25. Your men shall fall by the sword and your strength in battle.

26. Her gates shall lament and mourn and she shall sit on the ground deserted.

4)1. And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, “We shall eat our own food and wear our own cloths; only let us be called by your name, to take away our reproach.”

2. In that day the Branch of YHWH shall be splendid and esteemed. And the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and comely for he escaped ones of Yisra’el.

3. And it shall be that he who is left in Tsiyon and he who remains in Yerushalayim is called set-apart, everyone who is written among the living in Yerushalayim.

4. When YHWH has washed away the filth of the daughters of Tsiyon and rinsed away the blood of Yerushalayim from her midst, by the spirit of judgment and by the spirit of burning,

5. then YHWH shall create above every dwelling place of Mount Tsiyon and above her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night, for over all the esteem shall be a covering,

6. and a booth for shade in the daytime from the heat, for a place of refuge and for a shelter from storm and rain.

5)1. Please let me sing to the One I love, a song for my loved One regarding His vineyard: my loved One has a vineyard on a fertile hill.

2. And He dug it up and cleared it of stones and planted it with the choicest vine and built a watchtower in its midst and also made a winepress in it. And He waited for the yielding of grapes, but it yielded rotten ones.

3. “And now, O inhabitant of Yerushalayim and man of Yahudah, please judge between Me and My vineyard.

4. “What more could have been done to My vineyard that I have not done in it? Why, when I waited for the yielding of grapes, did it yield rotten ones?

5. “Now, please permit Me to inform you what I am doing to My vineyard: To takes away its hedge and it shall be burned; to break down its wall and it shall be trampled down;

6. and I lay it waste; it is not pruned or dug and thornbushes and seeds shall come up; and I command the clouds not to rain on it.”

7. For the vineyard of YHWH of hosts is the house of Yisra’el and the man of Yahudah is His pleasant plant. He looked for right-ruling, but see, oppression; for righteousness, but see, weeping.

8. Woe to those who join house to house, who add field to field, until there is no room and you are made to dwell alone in the midst of the land!

9. In my hearing YHWH of hosts said, “Truly, many houses shall be a waste–big and fine ones, without inhabitant.

10. “For ten acres of vineyard yield one bath and a homer of seed yields one ephah.”

11. Woe to those who rise earl in the morning pursuing strong drink, who stay up late at night–wine inflames them!

12. And the lyre and the harp, the tambourine and flute and wine are in their feasts; but they do not regard the deeds of YHWH, nor see the work of His hands.

13. Therefore my people have gone into exile, because they have no knowledge. And their esteemed men are starved and their crowd dried up with thirst.

14. So the grave has made itself wide and opened its mouth beyond measure. Their splendour and their crow and their uproar and he who is exulting within her, shall go down into it.

15. And man is bowed down and mortal man humbled and the eyes of the proud and humbled.

16. But YHWH of hosts is exalted in judgment and the set-apart El is set-apart in righteousness.

17. And the lambs shall feed in their pasture and strangers shall eat in the waste places of the fat ones

18. Woe to those who draw crookedness with cords of falsehood and sin as with wagon ropes,

19. who are saying, “Let Him hurry! Let Him hasten His work, so that we see it! And let the counsel of the Set-apart One of Yisra’el draw near and come so that we know.

20. Woe to those who call evil good and good evil; who put darkness for light and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

21. Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and clever in their own sight!

22. Woe to the mighty to drink wine and brave men to mix strong drink,

23. who declare right the wrong for a bribe and the righteousness of the righteous they turn aside from Him!

24. Therefore, as a tongue of fire devours the stubble and the flame consumes the chaff, their root is as rottenness and their blossom goes up like dustbecause they have rejected the Torah of YHWH of hosts and despised the Word of the Set-apart One of Yisra’el.

25. Therefore the displeasure of YHWH has burned against His people and He stretches out His hand against them and smites them and the mountains tremble. And their carcass is as filth in the middle of the streets. With all this His displeasure has not turned back and His hand is still stretched out!

26. And He shall lift up a banner to the nations from afar and shall whistle to them from the end of the earth. And see, they come with speed, swiftly!

27. Not one of them is weary or stumbling, not one slumbers or sleeps. Not a belt shall be loosened on their loins, nor the thong of their sandals be broken.

28. Their arrows are sharp and all their bows bent; their horses’ hooves shall seem like flint and their wheels like a whirlwind.

29. Their roar is like that of a lion, they roar like young lions. And they growl and size prey and slip away, with no one to rescue.

30. And in that day they shall growl over it as with the growling of the sea. And one shall look at the earth and see, darkness and distress! And light shall be darkened by the clouds.
