Found Through Blind Open-Page-First-Look On May 14, 2015: Luke Chapters 17-19:27 End Times Warnings

I was distraught, and as I have done in the past on several occasions, I opened the Hebraic Scriptures to a certain part, but not knowing which book or what my eyes shall first look upon to then read, when I came to the following section in Luke chapters 17 through 19:27 as follows:

Luke 17:1 And He said to the taught ones, “It is inevitable that stumbling-blocks should come, but woe to him through whom they come! 2. It is better if a millstone is put around his neck and he were thrown into the sea, than that the should cause one of these little ones to stumble. 3. Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins against you, rebuke him and if he repents, forgive him. 4. And if he sins against you seven times in a day and seven times in a day comes back to you, saying, ‘I repent,’ you shall forgive him.”

5. And the emissaries said to the Master, “Give us more belief.” 6. And the Master said, “If you have belief as a mustard seed, you would say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be pulled up but the roots and be planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you. 7. But who of you, having a servant ploughing or shepherding, would say to him when he has come in from the field, ‘Come immediately and sit down to eat.’

8. But would he not rather say to him, ‘Prepare somewhat for my supper and first yourself and serve me while I eat and drink and afterward you shall ear and drink’? 9. Would he thank that servant because he did what he was commanded? I think not. 10. So also you, when you have done all that you were commanded, say, ‘We are unworthy servants, we have done what was our duty to do.'”

11. And it came to be, as He went to Yerushalayim, that He passed through the midst of Shomeron and Balil. 12. And as He was entering into a certain village, He was met by ten leprous men, who stood at a distance. 13. And they lifted their voices, saying, “Yahusha Anointed One, Master, have compassion on us!”

14. And having seen them, He said to them, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And it came to be, that as they were going, they were cleansed. 15. And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, praising Elohim with a loud voice, 16. and he fell down upon his face at His feet, giving thanks to Him. And he was a Shomeronite.

17. And Yahusha Anointed One answering, said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? 18. Was no one found to return to give praise to Elohim, except this foreigner?” And He said to him, “Rise, go your way. Your belief has made you well.”

20. And having been asked by the Pharisees when the reign of Elohim would come, He answered them and said, “The reign of Elohim does not come with intent watching, nor shall they say, ‘Look here!’ or ‘Look there!’ For look, the reign of Elohim is in your midst!”

22. And he said to the taught ones, “Days shall come when you shall long to see one of the days of the Son of Adam, but you shall not see it. 23. And they shall say to you, ‘Look here!’ or ‘Look there!’ Do not go after them, nor follow.

24. “For as the lightning that flashes out of one part under heaven shines to the other part under heaven, so also the Son of Adam shall be in His day. 25. But first He has to suffer much and be rejected by this generation.

26. “And as it came to be in the days of Noah, so also shall it be in the days of the Son of Adam: 27. They were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah went into the ark and the flood came and destroyed them all.

28. “And likewise, as it came to be in the days of Lot: They were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building, 29. but on the day Lot went out of Sedom it rained fire and sulphur from heaven and destroyed all.

30. “It shall be the same in the day the Son of Adam is revealed. 31. In that day, he who shall be on the house-top and his goods in the house, let him not come down to take them away. And likewise the one who is in the field, let him not turn back.

32, “Remember the wife of Lot. 33. Whoever seeks to save his life shall lose it and whoever loses his life shall preserve it. 34. I say to you, in that night there shall be two in one bed, the one shall be taken and the other shall be left.

35, “Two shall be grinding together, the one shall be taken and the other shall be left. 36. Two shall be in the field, the one shall be taken and the other shall be left.” 37. And they answering, said to Him, “Where, Master?” And He said to them, “Where the body is, there also the eagles shall be gathered together.”

Luke 18

1. And He spoke a parable to them, that they should always pray and not lose heart, 2. saying, “In a certain city there was a certain judge, not fearing Elohim nor regarding man. 3. And a widow was in that city and she came to him, saying, ‘Do right to me on my adversary.’ 4. And he would not for a  while, but afterward he said within himself, ‘Even if I do not fear Elohim nor regard man, 5. yet because this widow troubles me I shall do right to her, lest by here continual coming she wears me out.'”

6. And the Master said, “Hear what the unrighteous judge said. 7. And shall Elohim not do right by all means to His own chosen ones, who are crying out day and night to Him, and being patient over them? 8. I say to you that He shall do right to them speedily, but when the Son of Adam comes, shall He find the belief on the earth?”

9. And He also spoke this parable to some who relied on themselves that they were righteous and looking down on others: 10 “Two men went up to the Set-Apart Place to pray – the one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11. The Pharisee stood and began to pray with himself this way, ‘Elohim, I thank You that I am not like the rest of men, swindlers, unrighteous, adulterers, or even as this tax collector.

12. “I fast twice a week, I give tithes of all that I possess.’ 13. But the tax collector standing at a distance would not even raise his eyes to the heaven, but was beating his breast, saying, ‘Elohim, show favour unto me, a sinner!’

14. “I say to you, this man went down to his house declared right, rather than the other. For everyone who is exalting himself shall be humbled, and he who is humbling himself shall be exalted.”

15, And they also brought infants to Him to touch them, but His taught ones seeing it, rebuked them. 16. But Yahusha Anointed One called them to Him and said, “Let the little children come to Me and do not forbid them, for of such is the reign of Elohim. 17. “Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the reign of Elohim as a little child, shall certainly not enter into it.”

18. And a certain ruler asked Him, saying, “Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit everlasting life?” 19. So Yahusha Anointed One said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good except One – Elohim. 20. You know the commandments, ‘Do not commit adultery,’ ‘Do not murder,’ ‘Do not steal,’ ‘Do not bear false witness,’ ‘Respect your father and your mother,'”

21. And he said, “All these I have watched over from my youth.” 22. And hearing this, Yahusha Anointed One said to him, “Yet one you lack: Sell all that you have and distribute to the poor and you shall have treasure in heaven and come, follow Me.” 23. But when he heard this, he became intensely sad, for he was extremely rich.

24. And when Yahusha Anointed One saw that he became intensely sad, He said, “How hard it is for those who have riches to enter into the reign of Elohim! 25. For it is easier for a camel to enter through a needle’s eye than for a rich man to enter into the reign of Elohim.”

26.And those who heard it said, “And who is able to be saved?” And he said, 27. “What is impossible with men is possible with Elohim.” 28. And Kepha said, “See, we have left all and followed You.” 29. And He said to them, “Truly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or parents or brothers or wife or children, for the sake of the reign of Elohim, 30. who shall not receive many times more in this present time and in the age to come everlasting life.”

 31. And taking the twelve aside, He said to them, “See, we are going up to Yerushalayim and all that have been written by the prophets about the Son of Adam shall be accomplished. 32. For He shall be delivered up to the gentiles and shall be mocked and insulted and spat upon, 33. and having flogged Him they shall kill Him. And on the third day He shall rise again.”

34. But they understood none of this and this word was hidden from them and they did not know what was being said. 35. And it came to be, that as He was coming near Yeriho, that a certain blind man was sitting by the way begging. 36. And hearing a crowd passing by, he asked what it meant. 37. They reported to him that Yahusha Anointed One of Natsarith was passing by.

38. And he cried out, saying, “Yahusha Anointed One, Son of Dawid, have compassion on me!” 39. And those going before were rebuking him that he should be silent, but he was crying out much more, “Son of Dawid, have compassion on me!” 40. And Yahusha Anointed One stopped and commanded him to be brought to Him. And when he had come near, He asked him, 41. saying, “What do you wish Me to do for you?” And he said, “Master, to receive my sight.”

42. And Yahusha Anointed One said to him, “Receive your sight! Your belief has saved you.” 43. And immediately he received his sight and was following Him, praising Elohim. And all the people, seeing it, gave praise to Elohim.

Luke 19

1. And having entered, He was passing through Yeriho. 2. And see, a man called Zakkai! He was a chief tax collector and he was rich, 3. and he was seeking to see who Yahusha Anointed One was, but was unable because of the crowd, for he was small in stature. 4. And having run ahead, he climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Him, because He was about to pass by.

5. And as Yahusha Anointed One came to the place, He looked up and saw him and said to him, “Zakkai, hurry and come down, for I have to stay at your house today.” 7. And seeing it, they all grumbled, saying, “He has gone in to stay with a man who is a sinner.”

8. But Zakkai stood up and said to the Master, “Look, Master, I give half of my possessions to the poor. And if I have taken whatever from anyone by false accusation, I repay fourfold.” 9. And Yahusha Anointed One said to him, “Today deliverance has come to this house – since he also is a son of Abrahim.

10. For the Son of Adam has come to seek and to save what was lost.” 11. And as they were hearing this, He spoke another parable, because He was near Yerushalayim and they thought the reign of Elohim was about to be manifested straightway.

12. He therefore said, “A certain nobleman went to a distant country to receive for himself a reign and to return. 13. And calling ten of his servants, He gave them ten minas and said to them, ‘Trade until I come.’ 14. “But his subjects were hating him and sent a delegation after him, to say, ‘We do not wish this one to reign over us.’

15. “And it came to be, when he came back, having received the reign, that he sent for these servants to whom he had given the silver, in order to know what each had gained by trading. 16. And the first came, saying, ‘Master, your mina has earned ten minas.’ 17. And he said to him, ‘Well done, good servant. Because you were trustworthy in a small matter, have authority over ten cities.’

18. “And the second came, saying, ‘Master, your mina has earned five minas.’ 19. And he said to him also, ‘And you – be over five cities.’ 20. And another came, saying, ‘Master, here is your mina, 21. which I kept laid up in a handkerchief. 22. For I was afraid of you, because you are a hard man. you take up what you did not lay down and reap what you did not sow.’

22. And he said to him, ‘Out of your own mouth I shall judge you, you wicked servant. You knew that I was a hard man, taking up what I did not lay down and reaping what I did not sow. 23. Why did you not put the silver in the bank, that when I come I could have collected it with interest?’

24. Then he said to those who stood by, ‘Take the mina from him and give it to him who possesses ten minas.’ 25. But they said to him, ‘Master, he already possesses ten minas.’ 26. For I say to you, that to everyone who possesses shall be given; and from him who does not possess, even what he possesses shall be taken away from him.

27. “But those enemies of mine who did not wish me to reign over them, bring them here and slay them before me.'”

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).

Philemon — “Favour to You and peace from Elohim our Father and the Master Yahusha Messiah”

Philemon

1. 1. Sha’ul, a prisoner of Messiah Yahusha Anointed One and Timothy the brother, to Philemon our beloved one and fellow worker,

2. and Apphia our sister and Archeppos our fellow soldier and the assembly at your house:

3. Favour to you and peace from Elohim our Father and the Master Yahusha Anointed One.

4. I always thank my Elohim when I mention you in my prayers,’6. hearing of your love and the belief which you have toward the Master Yahusha Anointed One and toward all the set-apart ones.

6. so that the sharing of your belief might become working in the knowledge of all the good which is in you toward Messiah Yahusha Anointed One.

7. For we have much joy and encouragement in your love, because the tender affections of the set-apart ones have been refreshed by you, brother.

8. Therefore, although I have much boldness in Messiah to command you what is fitting,

9. because of love, I rather appeal — being such a one as Sha’ul, the aged and now also a prisoner of Yahusha Anointed One Messiah.

10. I appeal to you for my child Onesimos, whom I brought forth while in my chains,

11. who formerly was of no use to you, but now is of good use to you and to me,

12. whom I wished to keep with me, that on your behalf he might serve me in my chains for the Besorah.

14. But without your opinion I wished to do none at all, so that your good deed should not be by the way of necessity, but voluntary.

15. For he parted from you for a while, possibly because of this, so that you might have him back forever,

16. no longer as a slave, but more that a slave — as a beloved brother — especially to me, and how much more to you, both in the flesh and in the Master.

17. So, if you regard me as your partner, receive him as you would me.

18. But, if he has wronged you or owes you whatever, put that on my account.

19. I, Sha’ul, wrote with my own hand. I shall repay — not to mention to you that you, indeed, owe yourself to me also.

20. Yea, brother, let me derive pleasure from you in the Master, refresh my tender affections in the Master.

21. Trusting in your obedience, I wrote to you, knowing that you shall do even more than I say.

22. And at the same time, also prepare a place for me to stay, for I trust that through your prayers, I shall be given to you.

23. Epaphras, fellow prisoner of me in Messiah Yahusha Anointed One, greets you,

24. and Mark, Aristarchos, Demas, Luke, my fellow workers.

25. The favour of our Master Yahusha Anointed One Messiah be with your spirit. Amen (pronounced Amein [awe-main])

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

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.

The “Rapture”: Yahusha is Coming With FIRE, Few Will Be ‘Caught Away’ By His Second Coming; Frightfully, People Will Call on Rocks to Fall on Them!

The reason “Judgment Day” has come and gone for the false teachers, preachers, leaders and others is because they are preaching and teaching false doctrines, which Yahusha has forbidden concerning adding and/or taking away from the prophecy of the Book of Revelation. CAUTION: With FIRE WILL YAHUSHA COME AND “RAPTURE” HIS BRIDE AND KILL 200,000,000 of the anti-messiah’s army, SHEER TERROR GRIPING THE HEARTS OF MANKIND WHEN HE APPROACHES EARTH FOR PURGING THE NATIONS WITH FIRE!

These were the sentiments I was feeling concerning the conclusion of writing ‘Yeshuyahu Chapters 6-35′: that Yahusha is coming back to “catch away” (some use the word “rapture”) his Bride as He comes back to earth with FIRE. This is also why men who have taken the Mark of the Beast call (they aren’t singing, they are in sheer terror from His soon-approaching wrath of FIRE) upon the rocks of the caves they are HIDING IN to FALL ON THEM and HIDE THEM from His wrath of fire. But let’s look at a fair amount of scripture to back this assumption up.

Yahusha speaking to His followers, also spoke to us today, beginning in Luke 12:41:

And Kepha said to Him, “Master, do You speak this parable to us, or also to all?” And the Master said, “Who then is the trustworthy and wise manager, who his master shall appoint over his household, to give the portion of food in due season? Blessed is that servant whom his master shall find so doing when he comes. Truly, I say to you that he shall appoint him over all his possessions….And that servant who knew his master’s desire and did not prepare, nor did according to his desire, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he who did not know, yet did what deserved flogging, shall be beaten with few. Everyone to whom much is given, from him much shall be demanded. To whom much has been entrusted, from him much more shall be asked. I CAME TO SEND FIRE ON THE EARTH and how I wish it were already kindled! But I have an immersion to be immersed with and how distressed I am until it is accomplished!…And he also told the crowds, “When you see a cloud rising out of the west, immediately you say, ‘A storm is coming,’ and so it is. And when you see the south wind blow, you say, ‘There shall be hot weather,’ and it is. Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the heavens and of the earth, but HOW IS IT YOU DO NOT DISCERN THIS TIME?”

His “immersion” followed His baptism under water, and was referring to his death and being under the earth for three days. He has yet to accomplish the second part of the prophecy about sending “fire on the earth.”

Let’s look at Malaki (Malachi) 3:1:

“See, I am sending My messenger and he shall prepare the way before Me. Then suddenly the Master you are seeking comes to His Kekal, even the Messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight. See, He is coming,” said YHWH of hosts. And WHO IS ABLE TO STAND WHEN HE APPEARS? FOR HE IS LIKE THE FIRE OF A REFINER and like the soap of the launderer. And He shall SIT AS A REFINER and a cleanser of silver. And He shall cleanse the sons of Lewi and REFINE them as gold and silver and they shall belong to YHWH, bringing near an offering in righteousness.

We can see what seems to be “cleansing” or “refining” taking place after Yahusha returns to earth in Matithyahu (Matthew) 25:

1 “Then the reign of the heavens shall be compared to ten maidens who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise and five foolish. those who were foolish, having taken their lamps, took no oil with them, but the wise took oil in their containers with their lamps. Now while the bridegroom took time, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight a cry was heard, ‘See, the bridegroom is coming, go our to meet Him!‘ Then all those maidens rose up and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said to the wise, Give us of your oil, because our lamps are going out.’ But the wise answered, saying, ‘No, indeed, there would not be enough for us and you. Instead, go to those who sell and buy for yourselves.’ And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast and the door was shut. And later the other maidens also came, saying, ‘Master, Master, open up for us!’ But he answering, said, ‘Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ Watch therefore, because you do not know the DAY or the HOUR in which the Son of Adam is coming…Then he who had received two talents came and said, ‘Master, you delivered to me two talents. See, I have gained two more talents besides them.’ His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and trustworthy servant. You were trustworthy over a little, I shall set you over much. Enter into the joy of your Master.’ And the one who had received the one talent also came and said, ‘Master, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you have not sown and gathering where you  have not scattered seed, and being afraid, I went and hid your talent in the ground. See, you have what is yours.’ And his master answering, said to him, ‘You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seek. Then you should have put my silver with the banker AND AT MY COMING I would have received back my own with interest. Therefore take away the talent from him and give it to him who possess ten talents. For to everyone who possesses, more shall be given and he shall have overflowingly; but from  him who does not possess, even what he possesses shall be taken away. And throw the worthless servant out into the outer darkness — there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.‘ And when the Son of Adam comes in His esteem and all the set-apart messengers with Him, then He shall sit on the throne of His esteem. And ALL THE NATIONS SHALL BE GATHERED before Him and He shall SEPERATE THEM ONE FROM ANOTHER, as a shepherd separates his sheep from the goats. And He shall set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. Then the Sovereign shall say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the reign prepared for you from the foundation of the world — FOR I WAS HUNGRY, and YOU gave ME food, I was thirsty and you gave Me drink, I was a stranger and you took Me in, was naked and you clothed Me, I was sick and you visited Me, I was in prison and you came to Me.’ Then the righteous shall answer Him, saying, ‘Master, when did we see You hungry and WE fed You, or thirsty and gave You to drink? When did we see You a stranger and took You in, or naked and clothed You? And when did we see You sick, or in prison and we came to You?’ And the Sovereign shall answer and say to them, ‘Truly, I say to you, in so far as you did it ton one of the least of these My brothers, you did it to Me.’ He shall then also say to those on the left hand, ‘Go away from Me, accursed ones, into the EVERLASTING FIRE PREPARED FOR THE devil and his messengers — for I was hungry and you gave Me no food, I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink, I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, was naked and you did not clothe Me, sich and in prison and you did not visit Me.’ Then they also shall answer Him, saying, ‘Master, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison and did not serve You?’ Then He shall answer them, saying, ‘Truly, I say to you, in so far as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ And these shall go away into EVERLASTING PUNISHMENT but the righteous into everlasting life.”

We can conclude above that those the Master is talking to are all DEAD! This is the first resurrection, which ONLY those at the end of the age can take part in. This is also why the five foolish virgins show up AFTER the 1,000 year reign of Yahusha on earth and try to get into ‘New Yerushalayim,” and are in the ‘outer darkness’ and cannot enter in the Kingdom. Those who do not help those who do NOT take the Mark of the Beast and those who do get their fair rewards respectively. Now let’s continue this research by looking at 1 Kepja (1 Peter) chapter 1.

3. Blessed be the Elohim and Father of our Master OWYFZ Messiah, who according to His great compassion has caused us to be born again to a living expectation through the resurrection of OWYFZ Messiah from the dead, to an INHERITANCE INCORRUPTIBLE and undefiled and unfading, having been KEPT IN THE HEAVENS FOR YOU, who are protected by the power of Elohim through belief, FOR A DELIVERANCE READY TO BE REVEALED IN THE LAST TIME, in which you exult, EVEN THOUGH FOR A LITTLE WHILE, if need be, YOU HAVE BEEN GRIEVED BY MANIFOLD TRIALS, IN ORDER THAT THE PROVING OF YOUR BELIEF — much more precious than gold that perishes and proven by FIRE — might be found to result in PRAISE and RESPECT and ESTEEM AT THE REVELATION of OWYFZ Messiah, whom having not seen, you love; in whom you exult with unspeakable and esteemed joy, yet not seeing, but believing, obtaining THE GOAL OF YOUR BELIEF: a deliverance of lives.”

Notice the “deliverance ready to be revealed in the last time.” The coming Mark of the Beast will cause true Believers in Yahusha to refuse to take it, thus making them susceptible to hunger, thirst, nakedness, incarceration, and homelessness. Thus, those who are still alive will be delivered by Messiah. Look at Yeshayahu (Isaiah) chapter 9:

5. For every boot of one trampling in tumult and coat rolled in blood, shall be used for BURNING AND FUEL FOR FIRE. For a Child shall be born unto us, a Son shall be given unto us and the RULE IS ON His shoulder. Counsellor, Strong El, Father of Continuity, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His RULE AND PEACE there is not end, upon the throne of Dawid and over His reign, to establish it and sustain it with right-ruling and with righteousness from now on, even forever…And the people have not turned back to Him who smites them nor have they sought YHWH of hosts. And YHWH cuts off head and tail from Yisra’el, palm branch and reed IN ONE DAY. Elder and highly respected, he is the head; THE PROPHET WHO TEACHES FALSEHOOD, he is the tail. For THE LEADERS OF THIS PEOPLE LEAD THEM ASTRAY…For wrongness BURNS AS THE FIRE; it CONSUMES THORNBUSHES AND WEEDS and sets the bushes of the forest ablaze and they roll up like rising smoke. The LAND SHALL BE BURNED UP BY THE WRATH of YHWH of hosts and the PEOPLE AS FUEL FOR THE FIRE. A man shall not spare his brother, and cut down on the right hand, but shall be hungry; and he devours on the left hand, but shall not be satisfied; each one devouring the FLESH OF HIS OWN ARM.

Notice the very same themes of hunger and wrath and fire from Matithyahu chapter 25 above. Let’s continue with 2 Kepha (2 Peter) 3:

1. …I stir up your sincere mind, to remember the words previously spoken by the set-apart prophets and of the command of the Master and Saviour, spoken by your emissaries, KNOWING THIS FIRST: that mockers shall come IN THE LAST DAYS with mocking, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the PROMISE OF His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all continues as from the beginning of creation.” For THEY CHOOSE TO HAVE THIS HIDDEN FROM THEM: that the heavens were of old and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by the Word of Elohim, through which the world at that time was destroyed, being flooded with water. AND THE PRESENT HEAVENS AND THE EARTH are treasured up by the same Word, BEING KEPT FOR FIRE, to A DAY OF JUDGMENT AND DESTRUCTION of wicked men. But, beloved ones, let NOT this one matter be hidden from you: that with YHWH one day is as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day. YHWH is NOT slow in regard to the promise, as some count slowness, but IS PATIENT towards US, not wishing that ANY should PERISH but that all should come to repentance. But THE DAY OF YHWH shall come as a thief in the night, in which THE HEAVENS SHALL PASS AWAY WITH A GREAT NOISE AND THE ELEMENTS SHALL MELT WITH INTENSE HEAT AND THE EARTH AND THE WORKS THAT ARE IN IT SHALL BE BURNED UP. Seeing all these are TO BE DESTROYED IN THIS WAY, what kind of people ought you to be in set-apart ehaviour and reverence, looking for and hastening the COMING OF THE DAY of Elohim, through which THE HEAVENS SHALL BE DESTROYED, BEING SET ON FIRE AND THE ELEMENTS MELT WITH INTENSE HEAT! But according to His promise WE WAIT for a renewed heavens and a renewed earth in which righteousness dwells. So then, beloved ones, LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS, do your utmost to be found by Him in peace, spotless and blameless, and reckon the patience of our Master as deliverance, as also Sha’ul wrote to you, according to the wisdom given to him, as also in ALL HIS LETTERS, speaking in them CONCERNING THESE MATTTERS, in which some are HARD TO UNDERSTAND, which those who are untaught and unstable TWIST TO THEIR OWN DESTRUCTION, AS THEY DO OTHER Scriptures.

 Notice that the scripture above accentuates other new and old covenant writers and scriptures thereof concerning YHWH judging the world with FIRE at the end of the age, afterwards the earth is RENEWED WITH FIRE. So, let’s take a look at what Sha’ul (Paul) wrote in Revelation 1:

1. Revelation of OWYFZ Messiah, which Elohim gave Him to show His servants WHAT HAS TO TAKE PLACE with speed (remember that a day is as a thousand years and that he wants to have patience with His set-apart ones, wanting ALL to come to repentance. It has only been about TWO DAYS [one day equals a thousand years] since Messiah died, in YHWH’s eyes)….Blessed is he who reads and those who HEAR THE WORDS OF THIS PROPHECY AND GUARD what is written in it, for the time is near. ..See, He is coming with the CLOUDS and EVERY EYE SHALL SEE Him, even they who pierced Him (remember that He comes to gather the nations together and separate them, which would be at the end of the 1,000 year reign of Yahusha Messiah, and all eyes will be upon Him. Many had mocked this believing that since those who had pierced Him had long ago died, therefore the scriptures were wrong. But Yahusha separates them according to their own doings, which sends them to where their eternal home will be). ..and in the midst of the seven lampstands One like the Son of Adam, dressed in a robe down to the feet and girded about the chest with a golden band. And His head and hair were white as white wool, as snow and His eyes as a flame of fire, and His feet like burnished brass, AS IF REFINED IN A FURNACE and His voice as the sound of many waters. And in His right hand He held seven stars and out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword and His FACE WAS AS THE SUN SHINING IN ITS STRENGTH. And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as DEAD and he placed His right hand on me, saying, “Do not be afraid, I am the First and the Last, and the living One. And I became dead, and see, I am LIVING FOREVER AND EVER. Amen. And I posses the keys of the grave and of death…The secret of the seven stars which you saw in My right hand and the seven golden lampstands: The seven stars are messengers of the seven assemblies and the seven lampstands which you saw are seven assemblies.”

As we can gain from other scripture, Messiah is the first fruits of the dead. The Two Witnesses who wear sackcloth will prophecy for a specific amount of time, then be killed, and on the third day rise from the dead and go up to heaven. Only AFTER the body has DIED and is DEAD, can it be transformed into the incorruptible and immortal, being able to live life everlasting. In the twinkling of an eye

Now I will start talking directly to those set-apart ones who love Yahusha through the following scriptures of what to expect from Messiah in the day ahead throughout the entire world, beginning in Revelation 2:

“To the messenger of the assembly of Ephesos write, ‘He who is holding the seven stars in His right hand, who is walking in the midst of the seven golden lampstands, says this: “I know your works and your labour and your endurance and that you are not able to bear evil ones and have tried those who say they are emissaries and are not and have found them false; and you have been bearing up and have endurance and have laboured for My Name’s sake and have not become weary. But I hold this against you, that you have left your first love. So remember from where you have fallen and repent and do the first works, or else I shall come to you speedily and REMOVE your lampstand from its place, UNLESS you repent.. Yet this you have, that you hate the works of the Nikolaites, which I also hate. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. TO HIM WHO OVERCOMES I shall give to eat from the tree of life, which is in the midst of the Paradise of Elohim. And to the messenger of the assembly in Smurna write, ‘This says the First and the Last, who became dead, and came to life: I know your works and pressure and poverty — yet you are rich — and the blasphemy of those who say they are Yahudim and are not, but are a congregation of Satan. Do not be afraid of what YOU ARE ABOUT TO SUFFER. See, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, in order to try you and you shall have pressure ten days. Be trustworthy until death and I shall give you the crown of life.  He who has an ear, let him HEAR what the Spirit says to the assemblies. He who overcomes shall by no means be harmed by the SECOND DEATH. And to the messenger of the assembly in Pergamos write, ‘He who has the sharp two-edged sword, says this: I know your works and where you dwell, where the throne of Satan is. And you hold fast to My Name and did not deny the belief in Me, even in the day in which Antipas was My trustworthy witness, who was killed near you, where Satan dwells. But I hold a few matters against you, because you have there those who adhere to the teaching of Bil’am, who taught Balaq to put a stumbling-block before the children of Yisra’el, to eat food offered to idols and to commit whoring.. So you also have those who adhere to the teaching of the Nikolaites, which teaching I hate. Repent, or else I shall come to you speedily and FIGHT AGAINST THEM WITH THE SWORD OF My MOUTH. He who has an ear, let him HEAR what the Spirit says to the assemblies. To him who overcomes I shall give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I shall give him a white stone and on the stone a renewed Name written which no one knows except him who receives it.”‘And to the messenger of the assembly in Thyatira write, ‘This says the Son of Elohim, who has eyes like a FLAME OF FIRE and His FEET LIKE BURNISHED BRASS: I know your works and love and service and belief and your endurance. And as for your works, the last are more than the first. But I hold against you that you allow that woman Izebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and lead My servants astray to commit whoring and to eat food offered to idols. And I gave her time to repent of her whoring and she did not repent. See, I am throwing her into a sickbed and those who commit adultery with her into GREAT AFFLICTION, UNLESS they repent of their works. And I SHALL SLAY HER CHILDREN WITH DEATH. And ALL the assemblies shall know that I am the One searching the kidneys and hearts. And I shall give to each one of you ACCORDING TO YOUR WORKS. And to you I say and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as do not possess this teaching and who have not known the depths of Satan, as they call them, I am not putting on you another burden. But hold fast what you have until I come. And he who overcomes and guards My works UNTIL THE END, to him I shall give authority over the nations, and he shall shepherd them with a rod of iron, as the potter’s vessels shall be broken to pieces, as I also have received from My Father. And I shall give him the morning star. He who has an ear, let him HEAR what the Spirit says to the assemblies.”

Revelation 3:1 “And to the messenger of the assembly in Sardis write, ‘He who has the seven Spirits of Elohim and the seven stars, says this, “I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but YOU ARE DEAD. Wake up and strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I HAVE NOT FOUND YOUR WORKS COMPLETE BEFORE Elohim. Remember, then, how you have received and HEARD. And watch and repent. If, then, you do not WAKE UP, I shall come upon you as a thief and YOU SHALL NOT KNOW AT ALL what hour I come upon you. Nevertheless, you have a FEW names in Sardis who have not defiled their garments. And they shall walk with Me in white, because THEY ARE WORTHY. He who overcomes shall be dressed in white robes and I shall by no means blot out his name from the Book of life, but I shall confess his name before My Father and before His messengers. He who has an ear, let him HEAR what the Spirit says to the assemblies, And to the messenger of the assembly in Philadelphia write, ‘He who is set-apart, He who is true, He who has the key of Dawid, He who opens and no one shuts and shuts and no one opens, says this: I know your works — see, I have set before you an open door, and no one is able to shut it — that you have little power, yet have guarded My word and have not denied My Name. See, I am giving up those of the congregation of Satan, who say they are Yahudim, and are not, but lie. See, I am making them come and worship before your feet and to KNOW THAT I HAVE LOVED YOU. Because you have guarded My Word of endurance, I also shall guard you from the hour of TRIAL WHICH SHALL COME UPON THE WORLD, TO TRY THOSE WHO DWELL ON THE EARTH. See, I am coming speedily! Hold what you have that no one take your crown. he who overcomes, I shall make him a supporting post in the Dwelling Place of My Elohim and he shall by no means go out. And I shall write on him the Name of My Elohim and the Name of the city of My Elohim, the renewed Yerushalayim, which comes down out of the heavens from My Elohim and My renewed Name. He who has an ear, let him HEAR what the Spirit says to the assemblies. And to the messenger of the assembly in Laodikeia write, ‘The Amen, the Trustworthy and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of Elohim, says this: I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I would that were cold or hot. So, BECAUSE YOU ARE LUKEWARM and neither cold nor hot, I AM GOING TO VOMIT YOU OUT OF My Mouth. Because YOU SAY, ‘Rich I am and I am made rich and need none at all,’ and do not know that you are wretched and pitiable and poor and blind and naked. I advise you to buy from Me gold REFINED IN THE FIRE, so that you become rich; and white garments, so that you become dressed, so that the shame of your nakedness might not be shown; and anoint your eyes with ointment, so that you see. AS MANY AS I LOVE, I REPROVE AND DISCIPLINE. So be ardent and repent. See, I stand at the door and knock. IF ANYONE HEARS My voice and opens the door, I shall come in to him and dine with him and he with Me. to him who overcomes I shall give to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. He who has an ear let him HEAR what the Spirit says to the assemblies.'”‘

As one can plainly see from above, ONLY those who seek what YHWH wants and obeys the commandments of Yahusha by doing His desires, will any of us endure to the end.

Next we will see what is soon to transpire on earth starting in Revelation 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. 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 it 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 seal, I heard 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…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 alter the beings of those having been SLAIN FOR THE Word of Elohim and for the witness which they held, and they cried with a lud 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 brothers, 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 commanders and the mighty and every slave and every free one,m 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?”

As we can observe from above, Yahusha’s wrath is so terrifying, the people of earth call to rocks that cannot hear to fall upon them to hide them from the Lamb’s wrath. Now let’s take even more time with Revelation starting in 19:

1. And after this I heard a loud voice of a great crowd in the heaven, saying, “Halleluyah! Deliverance and esteem and respect and power to YHWH our Elohim! Because true and righteous are His judgments, because He has judged the great whore who corrupted the earth with her whoring. And He has avenged on her the BLOOD OF His SERVANTS SHED BY HER.” And a second time they said, “Halleluyah! And HER SMOKE RISES UP FOREVER AND EVER!: And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshipped Elohim who sat on the throne, saying, “Amen! Halleluyah!: And a voice came from the throne, saying, “Praise our Elohim, all you His servants and those who fear Him, both small and great!” And I heard as the voice of a great crowd, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunders, saying, “Halleluyah, for YHWH El Shaddai reigns! Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him praise, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His wife prepared herself.” And to her it was given to be dressed in fine linen, clean and bright, FOR THE FINE LINEN IS THE RIGHTEOUSNESSES OF THE SET-APART ONES….And I saw the heavens opened and there was a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Trustworthy and True and in righteousness He judges and fights. And His eyes were as A FLAME OF FIRE and on His head were many crowns, having a Name that had been written, which no one had perceived except Himself — and having been dressed in a robe dipped in blood — and His Name is called: The Word of YHWH. And the armies in the heaven, dressed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. And AND OUT OF His MOUTH GOES A SHARP SWORD, that WITH IT He SHOULD SMITE THE NATIONS. And He shall shepherd them with a rod of iron. And He treads the winepress of the fierceness and WRATH of El Shaddai. And On His robe and on His thigh He has a Name written: SOVEREIGN OF SOVEREIGNS AND MASTER OF MASTERS. And I saw one messenger standing in the sun and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in mid-heaven, “come and gather together for the supper of the great Elohim, to eat the flesh of sovereigns and the flesh of commanders and the flesh of strong ones and the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them AND THE FLESH OF ALL PEOPLE, free and slave, both small and great.” I saw the beast and the sovereigns of the earth and their armies, gathered together to fight Him who sat on the  horse and His army. And the beast was seized and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he led astray those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshipped his image. The two were THROWN ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE BURNING WITH SULPHUR. And the rest were KILLED with the sword which came from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse and all the birds were filled with their flesh.

Now let’s turn to Yeshuyahu (Isaiah) 10:

16. Therefore the Master, YHWH of hosts, sends leanness among his fat ones. And under his esteem he kindles a burning like the burning of a fire. טז.
And the Light of Yisra’el shall be for a fire and his Set-apart One for a flame. And it shall burn and devour his weeds and his thornbushes in one day. יז.
and consume the esteem of his forest and of his fertile field, both life and flesh. And they shall be as when a sick man wastes away, יח.
and the remaining trees of his forest shall be so few in number that a child records them. יט.
And in that day it shall be that the remnant of Yisra’el and those who have escaped of the house of Ya’aqob, never again lean upon him who defeated them, but shall lean upon YHWH, the Set-apart One of Yisra’el, in truth.

His Set-apart one of Yisra’el is Yahusha, which is the Word of YHWH become flesh, the Light of the world. Notice that fields and life and flesh will be consumed by the burning and devouring of the fire. Now let’s continue in Yeshayahu with 11:

2.The Spirit of YHWH shall rest upon Him–the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of YHWH, ב.
and shall make Him breath in the fear of YHWH. And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes, nor decide by the hearing of His ears. ג.
But with righteousness He shall judge the poor and shall decide with straightness for the meek ones of the earth and shall smite the earth with the rod of His mouth and slay the wrong with the breath of His lips.

Notice He shall “slay the wrong with the breath of His lips.” Now notice that he shall SMITE THE EARTH WITH THE ROD OF HIS MOUTH.” This vindicates what Revelation and other scripture talk about concerning FIRE from Yahusha. But let’s talk about the set-apart ones of Yahusha in Yeshayahu 12:

1. And in that day you shall say, “I thank You YHWH, though You were enraged with me, Your displeasure has turned back and You have comforted me. א.
See, El is my deliverance, I trust and am not afraid. For Yah, YHWH, is my strength and my song and He has become my deliverance.” ב.
And you shall draw water with joy from the fountains of deliverance. ג.
And in that day you shall say, “Praise YHWH, call upon His Name; make known His deeds among the peoples, make mention that His Name is exalted. ד.
“Sing to YHWH, For He has done excellently; this is known in all the earth.

Looking at the above scripture, we can see that  people will be tested and experience YHWH’s displeasure and after the experience of Him being enraged at us, we praise Yah, telling His deeds and exalting YHWH’s Name.  Let’s continue with Yeshayahu 13 to read about more fire coming to earth and the future of the world very soon:

1. The message concerning Babel which Yeshayahu son of Amots saw.

א.

“Lift up a banner on the high mountain, raise your voice to them; wave your hand, let them enter the gates of the nobles.

ב.

“I have commanded My set-apart ones; I have also called My mighty men for My displeasure, My proudly exulting ones.”

ג.

The noise of an uproar in the mountains, like that of many people! A noise of uproar of the reigns of gentiles gathered together! YHWH of hosts is gathering an army for battle.

ד.

They are coming from a distant land, from the end of the heavens, even YHWH  and His weapons of displeasure, to destroy all the earth.

ה.

Howl, for the day of YHWH is near! It comes as a destruction from the Almighty.

ו.

Therefore, all hands shall go limp, every man’s heart melts.

ז.

And they shall be afraid. Pangs and sorrows take hold of them, they are in pain as a woman in labour; they are amazed at one another, their faces aflame!

ח.

See, the day of YHWH is coming, fierce, with wrath and heat of displeasure, to lay the earth waste and destroy its sinners from it.

ט.

For the stars of the heavens and their constellations do not give off their light. The sun shall be dark at its rising and the moon not send out its light.

י.

“And I shall punish the world for its evil and the wrong for their crookedness and shall put an end to the arrogance of the proud and lay low the pride of the ruthless.

יא.

I shall make mortal man scarcer than fine gold and mankind scarcer than the gold of Ophir.

יב.

“So I shall make the heavens tremble and the earth shall shake from her place, in the wrath of YHWH of hosts and in the day of the heat of His displeasure.

יג.

“And it shall be as the hunted gazelle and as a sheep that no man takes up–every man turns to his own people and everyone flees to his own people and everyone flees to his own land.

יד.

Whoever is found is thrust through, and everyone taken falls by the sword.

טו.

“And their children are dashed to pieces before their eyes, their houses plundered and their wives ravished.

טז.

See, I am stirring up the Medes against them, who do not regard silver and as for gold, they do not delight in it.

יז.

“And bows dash the young to pieces and they have no compassion on the fruit of the womb, their eye spare no children.

Notice again the same themes with Revelation about destruction and war. There is a “gathering” of “an army for battle, with YHWH and His weapons of displeasure, TO DESTROY THE EARTH! The day of YHWH IS to DESTROY ALL THE EARTH! This is why every mans’ heart melts and all hands go limp and they realize they are DOOMED. Notice also it says “in the day of the HEAT of His displeasure” to “LAY WASTE THE EARTH and DESTROY ITS sinners FROM IT. Now let’s go to Yeshayahu 25:

1. See YHWH is making the earth empty and making it waste and shall overturn its surface and shall scatter abroad its inhabitants. א.
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.
the earth is completely emptied and utterly plundered, for YHWH has spoken this word. ג.
The earth shall mourn and wither, the world shall languish and wither, the haughty people of the earth shall languish. ד.
For the earth has been defiled under its inhabitants, because they have transgressed the Torot, changed the law, broken the everlasting covenant. ה.
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.
The new wine shall fail, the vine shall languish, all those glad at heart shall sigh. ז.
The joy of the tambourine shall cease, the noise of those who rejoice shall end, the joy of the lyre shall cease. ח.
No more do they drink wine with a song, strong drink is bitter to those who drink it. ט.
The deserted city shall be broken down, every house shall be shut, no one enters. י.
There is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy shall be darkened, the gladness of the earth shall be gone. יא.
The city is left to ruins and the gate is stricken with destruction. יב.
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.
They lift up their voice, they sing of the excellency of YHWH, they shall cry aloud from the sea. יד.
Therefore praise YHWH in the east, the Name of YHWH Elohim of Yisra’el in the coastlands of the sea. טו.
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.
Fear and the pit and the snare are upon you, O inhabitant or the earth. יז.
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.
The earth shall be utterly broken, the earth shall be completely shattered, the earth shall be fiercely shaken. יט.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Therefore a strong people praise You, the city of the ruthless nations fear You. ג.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.”

Notice the language of YHWH “making the earth empty and making it waste,” overturning “its SURFACE” and therefore “a curse” will consume “the earth AND THOSE who dwell in it” so that “THE INHABITANTS OF THE EARTH SHALL BE BURNED AND FEW MEN SHALL BE LEFT.” The “EARTH SHALL BE UTTERLY BROKEN and “COMPLETELY SHATTERED and “FIERCELY SHAKEN.” Now let’s again go to Yeshayahu chapter 27:

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.”

Now I want you to play close attention to those that draw near to YHWH with their lips, and how YHWH has closed the understanding of the minds of the prophets and seers at the end of this age in Yeshuyahu 29:

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.
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.
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.
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.
Pause and wonder! blind yourselves and be blind! They are drunk, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink. ט.
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.
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.
And the book is given to one does not know books, saying, “Read this, please.” And he said, “I have not known books.” יב.
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.
“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.
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.
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.
Is it not yet a little while and Lebanon shall be turned into garden land and garden land be reckoned as a forest? יז.
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.
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.
For the ruthless one is brought to naught, the scorner is consumed and all who watch for evil shall be cut off, כ.
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.

Next we turn again to the theme of FIRE in Yeshayahu 30:

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.
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.
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.
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.
For through the voice of YHWH Ashshur is broken down, with a rod He smites. לא.
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.
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!

Next we turn to Yeshayahu chapter 33 to see more burning with “everlasting burnings,” with even the brave people crying and others weeping bitterly, with the highways becoming  deserted:

See, the brave ones shall cry outside, the messengers of peace weep bitterly. ז.
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.
The earth shall mourn and languish. Lebanon shall be ashamed. Sharon shall be withered like a desert and Bashan and Karmel be shaking. ט.
Now I rise up,” declares YHWH. “Now I am exalted, now I am lifted up. י.
“You conceive chaff, you bring forth stubble, your spirit devours you like fire. יא.
And peoples shall be like the burnings of lime, like thorns cut up they are burned in the fire. יב.
“You who are afar off, hear what I shall do; and you who are near, know My might.” יג.
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?”

Next we turn to Yeshayahu 28 to find out what has been decreed upon ALL the earth:

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.

Now I want to turn to the issue of the Gentiles who obey not Yahusha, where smoke goes up “forever and ever” in Yeshayahu 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.
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.
and their slain be thrown out and their stench rise from their corpses. And mountains shall be melted with their blood. ג.
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.
“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.
“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.
“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.
For it is the day of the vengeance of YHWH, the year of recompense for the cause of Tsiyon. ח.
And its streams shall be turned into tar and its dust into sulphur and its land shall become burning tar, ט.
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,

Next we read Yeshayahu chapter 60:

12. “For the nation and the reign that do not serve you shall perish and those gentiles shall be utterly laid waste.

Next we turn to Yeshayahu 64 for more themes of fire from YHWH, and also something hidden “since the beginning of the ages”:

1. Oh that You would tear the heavens open, come down, that mountains shall shake before Your ?–

as when fire burns twigs, as firemakes water boil–to make Your Name known to Your adversaries, so that nations tremble before You.

When You did awesome matters, which we did not expect, You came down, mountains did shake before You!

Since the beginning of the ages they have not heard nor perceived by the ear, nor has the eye seen any Elohim besides You, who acts for those who wait for Him.

And there is more fire, this time fire which shall “not be quenched” in Yeshayahu 66:

14. “And you shall see and your heart shall rejoice and your bones flourish as tender grass. And the hand of YHWH shall be known to His servants and His displeasure to His enemies.

For look, YHWH comes with fire and with His chariots, like a whirlwind, to render His displeasure with burning and His rebuke with flames of fire.

For by fire and by His sword YHWH shall judge all flesh and the slain of YHWH shall be many

“those who set themselves apart and cleanse themselves at the gardens after ‘One’ in the midst, eating flesh of pigs and the abomination and the mouse, are snatched away, together,” declares YHWH.

“And I, because of their works and their imaginations, am coming to gather all nations and tongues. And they shall come and see My esteem.

“And I shall set a sign among them and shall send some of those who escape to the nations–Tarshish and Pul and Lud, who drew the bow and Tubal and Yawan, the coastlands afar off who have not heard My report nor seen My esteem. And they shall declare My esteem among the gentiles.

“And they shall bring all your brothers as an offering to YHWH out of all the gentiles, on horses and in chariots and in litters, on mules and on camels, to My set-apart mountain Yerushalayim,” declares YHWH, “as the children of Yisra’el bring an offering in a clean vessel into the House of YHWH.

“And from them too I shall take for priests–for Lewites,” declares YHWH.

“For as the new heavens and the new earth that I make stand before Me,declares YHWH, “so your seed and your name shall stand.

“And it shall be that from New Moon to New Moon and from Sabbath to Sabbath, all flesh shall come to worship before Me,” declares YHWH.

“And they shall go forth and look upon the corpses of the men who have transgressed against Me. For their worm shall not die and their fire not be quenched. And they shall be repulsive to all flesh!”

Here are more scripture references to YHWH and judgment and FIRE:

2 Kepha 2:1 But there also came to be false prophets among the people, as also among you there SHALL be false teachers, who shall secretly bring in destructive heresies and deny the Master who bought them, BRINGING SWIFT DESTRUCTION ON THEMSELVES. AND MANY SHALL FOLLOW THEIR DESTRUCTIVE WAYS, because of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of, and IN GREED, with FABRICATED WORDS, THEY SHALL USE YOU FOR GAIN. From of old THEIR JUDGMENT DOES NOT LINGER and their DESTRUCTION does not slumber. For if Elohim did not spare the messengers who sinned, but sent them to Tartaros and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be kept for JUDGMENT, and did not spare the world of old, but preserved Noah, a proclaimer of righteousness and seven others, bringing in the flood on the world of the wicked, and having REDUCED TO ASHES the cities of Sedom and Amorah condemned them to DESTRUCTION — having MADE THEM AN EXAMPLE TO THOSE AFTERWARD would live wickedly, and rescued righteous Lot, who was oppressed with the indecent behaviour of the lawless f…then YHWH knows how to rescue the reverent ones from trial and to  keep the unrighteous unto the DAY OF JUDGMENT, to be PUNISHED, and most of all those walking after the flesh in filthy lust and despising authority — bold, headstrong, speaking evil of esteemed ones, whereas messengers who are greater in strength and power do not bring a slanderous accusation against them before the Master. But these, like natural unreasoning beasts, having been born to be caught and DESTROYED, blaspheme that which they do not know, shall be DESTROYED in their DESTRUCTION

Revelation 8:3 And another messenger came and stood at the altar, holding a golden censer and much incense was given to him, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the set-apart ones upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, with the PRAYERS OF THE SET-APART ONES, went up before Elohim from the hand of the messenger. And the messenger took the sensor and FILLED IT WITH FIRE from the altar and THREW IT TO EARTH…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 AND ALL GREEN GRASS WAS BURNT 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…

Ibrim (Hebrews) 12:25 TAke heed NOT TO REFUSE the One speaking. For if those did not escape who refused the warning on earth, MUCH LESS WE who turn away from Him from heaven, whose voice shook the earth then, but now He has PROMISED, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, BUT ALSO THE HEAVENS.” And this, “Yet once more,” makes clear the REMOVAL OF WHAT IS SHAKEN — as having been made — so that the unshaken matter might remain. Therefore, receiving an unshakeable reign, let us hold the favour, through which we serve Elohim pleasingly with reverence and awe, for indeed, our Elohim IS A CONSUMING FIRE.

Wayyiqra (Leviticus) 9:23 …And the ESTEEM of YHWH appeared to all the people, and FIRE CAME OUT FROM BEFORE YHWH AND CONSUMED the burnt offering and the fat on the altar…And Nadab and Abihu…each took his fire holder and put fire in it and put incense on it and brought strange fire before YHWH, which He had NOT commanded them. And FIRE CAME OUT FROM YHWH AND CONSUMED THEM and they died before YHWH.

Debarim (Deuteronomy) 4:24 For YHWH your Elohim is a CONSUMING FIRE, a jealous El.

2 Thessalonians 1:5 …clear evidence of the righteous judgment of Elohim. In order for you to be counted worthy of the reign of Elohim, for which you also suffer, since Elohim shall rightly REPAY WITH AFFLICTION those who afflict you, and to give you who are afflicted rest with us when the Master OWYFZ is revealed from heaven with His mighty messengers, IN FLAMING FIRE TAKING VENGEANCE on those who do not obey the Besorah of our Master OWYFZ Messiah, who shall be PUNISHED WITH EVERLASTING DESTRUCTION from the PRESENCE OF THE Master and from the ESTEEM OF His STRENGTH, when He comes to BE ESTEEMED in His set-apart ones and to be admired among all those who believe in that Day

The U.S. Roll in the Holocaust of the Jews; What Did She Know, When Did She Know it, Its Roll W/ the MS St Louis, Its History of Antisemitism and Its Future With Barack Hussein Obama in the Lead

Let’s make sure we can understand history correctly. Martin Luther said many horrible things about Jews, which Hitler used against the Jews, and with the help of the Catholic Church, and the silence or even open hostility of most so-called “Christians” in the entire world, the world allowed Hitler and his allies to almost annihilate an entire race on a continent, thereby causing the rise of World War Two with an estimated up to 72 MILLION killed, 61 million on the Allies side, 11 million on the Axis side.

And also let their be absolutely, unequivocally and unmistakably no ambiguity around the perfect FACT that Yahuah sent His Son as a Jew to save the Jews FIRST, then sent Saul, who Yahusha renamed Paul, to give the good news (gospels can be good or send people to the eternal pain of the Lake of Fire) of redemption through the shed sacrifice of a perfect human being on a tree to become a curse through his shed blood, rising from the dead after three days, and after being seen by men for many days, he ascended to heaven in a cloud to receive His glory and sit down at the Right Hand of the Father to be sent down one day to annihilate the anti-Messiah’s army of 200,000,000 and set up His Kingdom for 1,000 years as Satan is locked away and peace and justice reign supreme on Earth, like Messiah said He would.

Now we can get into the exact language YHWH used in connection with the promise he made to Abraham, whom Elohim renamed Israel, as it pertains to the blessings and curses of the Gentiles (all who are not Hebrew are Gentiles) by YHWH.

Genesis 12: 1 And YHWH said to Abram, “Go yourself out of your land, from your relatives and from your father’s house, to a land which I show you. 2 “And I shall make you a great nation and bless you and make your name great and you shall be a blessing. 3 And I shall bless those who bless you and curse him who curses you. And in you all the clans of the earth shall be blessed.”

This was none other than the beginning of the First Covenant, since afterwards it was Abraham that was willing to sacrifice his only child of Sarah’s and his son, Isaac, as YHWH had instructed him to do, and was stopped by YHWH before he could slay the boy, making a covenant with him and his offspring that would creat the state of Yisra’el (Israel) and eventually the New Covenant that would bless the entire world through the redemptive power of Yahusha the Hebrew Messiah, who would welcome the repentant Gentiles to share in the kingdom and glory to come.

The scriptures prophecy of the Israel at the end of the age, which has come to pass since 1948, after Hitler tried to exterminate them. The Jews DO have a homeland promised to them by YHWH, of which no other nation can claim now or in the past

Now let’s move to accurate testimony about Gentile Believers in Yahusha Messiah, and just what kind of role they play in YHWH’s promises to Israel and Yerushalem (Jerusalem).

Romans 11:1 I say then, has Elohim rejected His people? Let it not be! For I also am a Yisraelite, of the seed of Abrahim, of the tribe of Binyamin. 2 Elohim has not rejected His people whom he knew beforehand. 11 I say then, have they stumbled that they should fall? Let it not Be! But by their fall deliverance has come to the gentiles, to provoke them to jealousy. 12 And if their fall is riches for the world and their failure riches for the gentiles, how much mor their completeness! 13 For I speak to you the gentiles, inasmuch as I am an emissary to the gentiles…” 16 Now if the first=fruit is set=apart, the lump is also. And if the root is set-apart, so are the branches. 17 And if some fo the branches were broken off and you, being a wild olive tree, have been grafted in among them and came to share the root and fatness of the olive tree, 18 do not boast against the branches. And if you boast, remember; you do not bear the root, but the root bears you!…20…By unbelief they were broken off and you stand be belief. Do not be arrogant, but fear. 21 For if Elohim did not spare the natural branches, He might not spare you either. 22 See the kindness and sharpness of Elohim; on those who fell sharpness, but toward you kindness, if you continue in His kindness, otherwise you also shall be cut off. 23 And they also, if they do not continue in unbelief, shall be grafted in, for Elohim is able to graft them in again. 24 For if you were cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature and were grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree, how much more shall these who are the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree? 25 For I do not wish you to be ignorant of this secret, brothers, lest you should be wise in you own estimation, that hardening in part has come over Yisra’el, UNTIL THE COMPLETENESS OF THE GENTILES HAS COME IN. 26 And so ALL YISRA’EL SHALL BE SAVED, as it has been written, “The Deliverer shall come out of Tsiyon and He shall turn away wickedness from Ya’cob, and this is My covenant with them, when I take away their sins. Truly, as regards the Besorah they are enemies for your sake, but concerning the choice THEY ARE BELOVED FOR THE SAKE OF THE FATHERS. 29 For THE GIFTS AND THE CALLING OF Elohim are NOT TO BE REPENTED OF.”

So as we can see in the above scripture, Elohim has promised Israel their land and a Deliverer, and those who bless the Jews will be blessed and those who curse them will be cursed. Now we can retrace the events and attitudes of America before World War Two to see if America was blessed or cursed, or maybe cursed, then blessed.

  1. 1923-1924 — Hitler writes his autobiography, Mein Kampf, German for “My Struggle,” while in prison after the November 1923 failed “Beer Hall Putsch.” In it, Hitler explains his beliefs and plans for the future of the German nation. He describes the “Aryan” race, by eliminating all inferior and undesirable peoples, of which in particular he focuses on the “source of all evil” – the Jews.

It is from Gonzalo Montt Rivas, the Chilean consul in Prague, Czechoslovakia, to his superiors in Santiago, Chile. In it, Rivas informs Santiago of a German decree revoking the citizenship and forfeiting the property of German Jews living outside Germany. Rivas also ominously states — “The German triumph (in the war) will leave Europe freed of Semites.”

  29. August 8, 1942 — Gerhart Riegner informs U.S. consulate in Geneva about a Nazi plan to murder all the Jews of Europe.
  1. Until recently [July 2001], this was believed by most historians to be the date the United States first obtained “reliable” intelligence of mass exterminations of Jews by the Nazis. But, see March 20, 1942 for possible earlier date.
  • August 11, 1942 — U.S. Legation in Switzerland passes information received from Gerhart Riegner to U.S. State Department regarding Nazi plan to kill all European Jews. The U.S. State Department decides the information passed on by Riegner is nothing more than a “fantastic” war rumor, and do not pass the information on to American Jewish leaders.
  • August 21, 1942 — President Roosevelt warns Axis powers that the perpetrators of war crimes would be tried after their defeat and face “fearful retribution.”
  • August 28, 1942 — After receiving details of Gerhart Reigner’s report regarding the Nazi plan to annihilate European Jews, a British politician cables the information to American Rabbi Stephen Wise.
  • September 2, 1942 — Rabbi Stephen Wise contacts U.S. State Department about Nazi plan to kill all European Jews. Wise agrees to remain silent until the information is confirmed. This ‘confirmation’ takes nearly 3 months.
  • November 24, 1942 — U.S. State Department confirms the existence of Nazi extermination camps and the murder of two million Jews to date. Rabbi Stephen Wise holds press conference to announce that the Nazis were deporting Jews throughout German-occupied territory to Poland for mass slaughter. The news makes little impact as the next day’s New York Times reported this news on its tenth page. Throughout the rest of the war, the N.Y. Times and most other newspapers failed to give prominent and extensive coverage to the Holocaust.
  • December 8, 1942 — Jewish leaders meet with President Roosevelt and hand him a 20-page summary of the Holocaust.
  • December 17, 1942 — The Allies issue a statement condemning “in the strongest possible terms this bestial policy of cold-blooded extermination.”
  • January, 1943 — U.S. State Department receives information from Switzerland that discloses that 6,000 Jews a day are being killed at one location in Poland.
  • February 10, 1943 — U.S. State Department asks legation in Switzerland to discontinue sending reports about the mass murder of Jews to private persons in the U.S.
  • April 12, 1943 — The 12-day Bermuda Conference opens. The conference grew out of concerns in Britain about reports that the Nazis were slaughtering Europe’s Jews. The U.S. agreed to hold a closed-door conference with Britain to discuss the issue. But American delegates arrived with secret directives from the U.S. State Department to accomplish little. The delegates to the conference developed almost no concrete proposals. Perhaps because of this they decided to keep their report secret.
  • July, 1943 — Jan Karski, a courier for the Polish resistance, meets with FDR, giving him an eyewitness account of the Holocaust.
  • August, 1943 — A report received by Jewish leaders in the U.S. advises that the death toll of European Jews has reached four million.
  • September, 1943 — A bill is introduced to allow refugees who won’t endanger public safety to be allowed to enter the U.S. temporarily. The bill dies in office.
  • October 6, 1943 — 400 Orthodox rabbis march on Washington from the Capitol to the White House. The President refuses to see them. However, as a result, public hearings on rescue in the House and Senate are held.
  • January 13, 1944 — “Report to the Secretary on the Acquiescence of This Government in the Murder of the Jews” is received by U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, Henry Morgenthau Jr. Earlier, U.S. Treasury Department officials, working on projects to provide aid to European Jews, discovered that their colleagues in the U.S. State Department were actually undermining rescue efforts. They brought their concerns to Morgenthau, who was Jewish and a long-time supporter of Roosevelt. Morgenthau directed the preparation of this report, presented it to FDR and requested that he establish a rescue agency.
  • January 22, 1944 — January 22, 1944, The president issued Executive Order 9417, creating the War Refugee Board [WRB]. Estimates indicate that the WRB may have saved as many as 200,000 Jews. One can only speculate how many more might have been saved had the WRB been established in August 1942, when Gerhart Riegner’s message reached the United States.
  • April, 1944 — Two escapees from Auschwitz, Rudolph Verba and Alfred Wetzler, provide Jewish underground in Slovakia with full description of the death camp.
  • May 16, 1944 — Rabbi Weissmandl sends out pleas to bomb camp and rail lines — based on his “Auschwitz Protocol” — a 31 page report from the eyewitness accounts of Rudolph Verba and Alfred Wetzler.
  • May 31, 1944 — Aerial reconnaissance photograph taken of the Auschwitz-Birkenau extermination camp, by the U.S. Army Air Force’s 8th Division. The U.S. had aerial reconnaissance photos of Auschwitz as early as April 4, 1944. Go here for more information.

  • September 13, 1944 — U.S. heavy bombers rain destruction on factory areas a few miles from Auschwitz, but Allies refuse to bomb railroad tracks or gas chambers at Auschwitz.
  • November 2, 1944 — SS Chief Heinrich Himmler orders a halt to the gassing of Jews, followed by destruction of gas chambers and crematoria.

  • 1946 — After more than 200 days of proceedings, the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal concludes. Death sentences given to Goering, Ribbentrop, Streicher, Hans Frank and seven other Nazis.

As you can see by the information contained in numbers , the United States of America saw, heard, and had ample evidence of what the Jews of Europe were facing, turned our back on the Jews from the MA St Louis which later resulted in the death of many of them, and allowed antisemitism to flourish, which finally resulted in World War Two. Is Barack Obama going to bless Israel and the U.S., or harm Israel and cause curses including war, famine, death and disease to ravish america?

Remember, it wasn’t until the Allies, including America, defeated Nazi Germany that they saw blessings of victory with new weapons that caused Japan to surrender, ending the War and bringing relative peace to the planet for the last 60+ years. But there were moments of war, so where did America stand with Israel during these times?

First let’s take a look at numbers 3 and 4 to see that Jews in Germany were stripped of civil service and then lost their citizenship and were thoroughly discriminated against in 1933 and 1935 respectively. Then we can see in Jan. of 1939 Time Magazine named Hitler ‘Man of the Year’ and praised him, then in 1939 the U.S. rejected Jews from the ship MA St Louis. September 1939 marks the beginning of World War Two with the invasion of Poland by Germany, and in July of 1941 America learns of massacres of Jewish civilians by Nazi’s in Europe. America enters the War via an attack by Japan on Dec. 7, 1941. By this time, Hitler had indeed become very powerful.

As a matter of historical record, the United States, though timid, indifferent, cold and even semi-hostile at times against Zionism, which is the belief that Jews should live in the homeland Yahuah gave them thousands of years ago, and against Israel itself and Jews in general, has remained the strongest ally of Israel from the start of that nation until this day, though Barack Obama may change this soon…

In the United Nations, the U.S. didn’t even cast its first veto until 1972, and that was on a Syrian-Lebanese complaint against Israel. In fact, from 1967-72, the U.S. supported or abstained on 24 resolutions, most critical of Israel. And from 1973-2000, the Security Council adopted about 90 resolutions on the Middle East, with most of them also critical of Israel. The U.S. vetoed a total of 33 resolutions and, thereby supported the Council’s criticism of Israel by its vote of support or by abstaining about two-thirds of the time. Since its inception, the UN has been generally hostile to Israel with the US often her sole defender. Israel returns the friendship by voting solidly with the US on virtually all issues.

The U.S. was first to recognize Israel, only minutes after it was officially created in 1948, which was consistent with a 1922 Congressional resolution backing the League of Nations mandate for a Jewish homeland in Palestine. In the 6-Day 1967 War, the U.S. through its State Department said it was “neutral in thought, word and deed” about the conflict, with Johnson imposing an arms embargo on the region. So, what happened in 1968 after a string of victories by the U.S. in Vietnam in 1967? The Tet Offensive, which changed with antisemitic Walter Cronkite reporting that the war was unwinnable, changing public support for the War effort into a huge negative complete with the Weather Underground terrorist group declaring war on America, along with massive civil unrest and upheavals all across the country. The Philippines, which had given the U.S. a 99-year lease on designated military, naval, and air bases, was reduced to 25 years beginning 1967. Remember that Israel defeated a radical Arab, pro-Soviet offensive, which threatened to bring about the collapse of pro-American Arab regimes and disrupt oil supply, thus severely undermining U.S. standard of living.

Remember also that the U.S. gained valuable military information from analysis of captured Soviet equipment, including SAM-2, SAM-12, Mig-21 aircraft, and Soviet T-54 battle tanks, with Israel giving a squadron of MiG-21s to the U.S. and used for Air and Naval forces for training purposes.

Just as a side note, since 1967, Israel has transferred captured Soviet weapons systems to the U.S. Pentagon after every conflict: 1967, 1967-70, 1973, 1982, 1990 (Scud remnants from the Gulf War), and 2006 (remnants of Iranian supplied missiles). In 1982, Israel destroyed Soviet anti-aircraft batteries in Lebanon that were considered immune to American weapons, with Israel sharing the operation’s lessons to the U.S., estimated to be worth billions of dollars.

And General George Keegan, former head of U.S. Air Force Intelligence, publicly declared that “Israel is worth five CIA’s,” and further stated that between 1974 and 1990, Israel received $18.3 billion in U.S. military grants, but during the same period Israel provided the U.S. with $50-80 billion in intelligence, research and development savings, and Soviet weapons systems captured and transferred to the U.S.

Also, during the 1967-1970 1000 Day War of Attrition, the IDF, armed with American aircraft successfully defeated a Soviet-supplied air defense system, revealing deficiencies in Soviet air-defense doctrine to US defense planners, with Israel also sharing captured military equipment including P-2 radar and Soviet tanks.

The Yom Kippur War of 1973 saw the U.S. finally come to the rescue of Israel: “The President has agreed — and let me repeat this formally – that all your aircraft and tank losses will be replaced,” U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger told the Israelis on Oct. 9, 1973. The U.S. decision allowed Israel to send hundreds of additional tanks and planes into battle that were being saved in case of future losses.

So what happened in 1973? The Democratic Republic of Vietnam (North Vietnam), and the Provisional Revolutionary Government of South Vietnam (Viet Cong) sign a peace agreement in Paris, France, ending the longest U.S. war & military draft. Following President Richard Nixon’s visit to China, the U.S. and the People’s Republic of China agree to establish liaison offices, and U.S. – Sino relations begin to shift as the U.S. would now use China as a semi-ally against the U.S.S.R., giving the U.S. a permanent wedge against Moscow.

Also, Egypt and Israel sign a U.S.-sponsored cease-fire accord, which would allow Egypt to be a partner for peace, which also would be used as a wedge against other more hostile Arab states, giving the U.S. another tactical advantage in U.S./U.S.S.R. relations. U.S. President Richard Nixon begins several talks with Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev, paving the way for somewhat better relations with Moscow.

And in 1973, because of U.S. re-supply, Israel defeated Soviet-trained and equipped Egyptian and Syrian forces and shared that captured Soviet equipment, including T-62 battle tanks, with the U.S. Israel and emerged as the only reliable ally where U.S. troops could land, equipment can be pre-positioned, and where the U.S. has friendly port facilities (in Haifa and Ashdod) in the entire Middle East region, saving the U.S. billions of dollars.

Finally, Israel, Egypt, Syria, Jordan, US & USSR meet in Geneva, with relative peace from this time in the Middle East until the Gulf War in 1991.

Although the U.S. was the first to recognize Israel, America denied her the right to defend herself somewhat by going along with other nations to deny them weapon sales through the embargo of the 1949 Tripartite Agreement on weapons, even though the US sold hundreds of millions of dollars in weaponry to Arab states during the 1950s and early 1960s. It wasn’t until 1962, when the U.S. agreed to sell to Israel its first significant American system, the HAWK anti-aircraft missile, that America started to back Israel in a big way, and she took off from the Cuban Missile Crisis to become an even greater nation that stopped the Soviet Union from swallowing the world in Communism.

As a direct result of the Yom Kippur War, the U.S. quadrupled its foreign aid to Israel, and the doctrine of maintaining Israel’s “qualitative edge” over its neighbors was begun, based both on U.S. gratitude of Israel’s defense of Western values in a generally hostile region, with the backdrop of the Cold War with the understanding of opposing the hostile Arab client states of the U.S.S.R.

The U.S. didn’t give financial aid to Israel until, you guessed it, the year of the start of the Korean War, where the U.S. outnumbered was able to stop the total takeover of the entire nation. This would have meant a very different world had this occurred. New Philippine constitution names Marcos president for life, keeping a strong U.S. as a long-term strategic partner against Soviet and Chinese desires in the region. The 1st U.S. POWs in N Vietnam released; 116 of 456 flown to the Philippines. Luna 21 launched to Moon, Pioneer 11 launched to Jupiter & Saturn and U.S. launches 1st Skylab crew to keep up with Soviet launches to moon and space of that year. The first portable cell phone call is made in New York City.

But why did desert storm occure in 1991? The U.S. only lost 148 in battle and prevented Iraq from destabilizing the region and thereby eventually severely reducing oil supplies to the U.S., crippling our economy.

And let us remember how much of a blessing the state of Israel has been to America and those that love freedom in the world.

  1. In 1970, Israel caused the withdrawal of Syrian forces from Jordan, when the U.S. was in wars in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia, thus preventing the fall of the pro-American regime and the installation of a pro-Soviet radical Palestinian terrorist regime.
  2. In 1981, Israel bombed the Iraqi nuclear reactor at Osirak, delaying Saddam Hussein’s quest for nuclear weapons, thus providing the U.S. with the option of engaging in conventional wars with Iraq in 1991 and 2003, instead of wars with nuclear weapons possibly involved, saving the world a nightmarish scenery of possibly globe-altering conditions.
  3. The vice president of General Dynamics which produces the F16 fighter jets, stated that Israel is responsible for 600 improvements in the plane’s systems, modifications estimated to be worth billions of dollars, and spared dozens of research and development years.
  4. During the Gulf War in 1991, Israel provided invaluable intelligence, an umbrella of air cover for military cargo, and even had personnel planted in the Iraqi desert to pick up downed American pilots.
  5. In 2005, Israel provided the U.S. with the world’s most extensive experience in homeland defense and warfare against suicide bombers and car bombs, with American soldiers training in IDF facilities. 
  6. Israeli-made drones fly in Iraq, as well as in Afghanistan, providing  the U.S. with vital intelligence.
  7. In September 2007, the IAF destroyed a Syrian-North Korean nuclear plant, providing the U.S. with vital information on Russian air defense systems, which are also employed by Iran.
  8. In 2009, Israel shared with the U.S. its battle-tested experience in combating Palestinian and Hizbullah terrorism. with U.S. GIs benefiting from Israel’s battle tactics against car bombs, improvised explosive devices and homicide bombings.
  9. Israel informed U.S. the lessons of battle (during the Cold War Soviet military doctrine) and counter-terrorism (including aircraft security, homicide-suicide bombings) which reduced U.S. losses in Iraq and Afghanistan, prevented attacks on U.S. soil, upgraded U.S. weapons, and contributed to the U.S. economy. Without Israel, the U.S. could have been forced to deploy tens of thousands of U.S. troops in the eastern Mediterranean Basin, at a cost of billions of dollars per year.
  10. Israel’s utilization of  American arms gives U.S. military industries, such as Boeing and General Dynamics, a competitive edge compared to European industries. It also boosts U.S. military production, producing more American jobs, and improving U.S. national security. Japan and South Korea preferred the “Hawkeye” spy plane and the MD-500 chopper, both purchased and upgraded by Israel, over comparable British and French aircraft.
  11. Most of the $1.8 billion in annual U.S. military aid to Israel must be spent in the U.S., proving work for about 50,000 U.S. workers. Virtually all of the $1.2 billion in annual economic aid goes for repayment of debt to the U.S., incurred from military purchases dating back many years, which is now almost liquidated.
  12. Innovative Israeli technologies have given the U.S. a boost on U.S. civilian, including computer-related industries and agricultural industries, which view Israel as a valuable research and development friend.
  13. In contrast to U.S. commitments to Korea, Japan, Germany and other parts of the world, not a single U.S. military serviceperson needs to be stationed in Israel, which is estimated to be about $200,000 per year. Assuming a minimum contingent of 25,000 troops, the cost savings to the U.S. would be about $5 billion a year.

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!”
7)1. And it came to be in the days of Ahaz son of Yotham, son of Uzziyahu, sovereign of Yahudah, that Retsin sovereign of Aram and Peqah son of Remalyahu, sovereign of Yisra’el, went up to Yerushalayim to fight against it, but could not prevail against it. א.
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.
3. And YHWH said to Yeshayahu, “Go out now to meet Ahaz, you and She’ar-Yashub your son, at the end of the channel of the upper pool, on the highway of the Launderer’s Field, ג.
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.
5. “Because Aram, Ephrayim and the son of Remalyahu have plotted evil against you saying, ה.
6. “‘Let us go up against Yahudah and tear it apart and break it open for ourselves and set a sovereign over them, the son of Tabe’el.’ ו.
7. Thus said the Master YHWH, “It is not going to stand, nor shall it take place. ז.
8. “For the head of Aram is Damascus and the head of Damascus is Retsin. And within sixty-five years Ephrayim is to be broken as a people. ח.
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.
14. “Therefore YHWH Himself gives you a sign. Look, the maiden conceives and gives birth so a Son and shall call His Name Immanu’el. יד.
15. “He eats curds and honey when He knows to refuse evil and choose the good. טו.
16. “For before the Child knows to refuse evil and choose the good, the land that you dread is to be forsaken by both her sovereigns. טז.
17. “YHWH brings on you and your people and your father’s house days that have not come since the day that Ephrayim turned away from Yahudah–the sovereign of Ashshur.” יז.
18. And it shall be in that day YHWH whistles for the fly that is in the farthest part of the rivers of Mitsrayim and for the bee that is in the land of Ashshur. יח.
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.
22. And it shall be, that he shall eat curds because of the plenty milk he gets, for everyone left in the land shall eat curds. כב.
23. And it shall be in that day, every place where there were a thousand vines worth a thousand sheqels of silver, let it be for thornbushes and weeds. כג.
24. With arrows and bows one shall go there, because all the land shall be thornbushes and weeds. כד.
25. And to all the hills which were tiled with the hoe, you do not go for fear of thornbushes and weeds; but it shall be for sending oxen to and a place for sheep to roam.
8)1. And YHWH said to me, “Take a large tablet and write on it with a man’s pen concerning Maher-Shalal-HashBaz. א.
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.
7. “now therefore, see, YHWH brings up over them the waters of the River, strong and mighty–the sovereign of Ashshur and all his esteem. And he shall come over all his channels and go over all his banks. ז.
8. “And it shall pass through Yahudah, he shall overflow and pass over, reaching up to the neck. And the stretching out of his wings shall fill the breadth of Your land, O Immanu’el. ח.
9. “Be shattered, O you peoples and be broken in pieces! Give ear, all you from the far places of the earth. Gird yourselves, but be broken in pieces; gird yourselves, but be broken in pieces. ט.
10. “Take counsel and it comes to ruin; speak a word and it does not stand, for El is with us.” י.
11. For YHWH spoke thus to me with a strong hand and instructed me that I should not walk in the way of this people, saying, יא.
12.” Do not say, ‘A conspiracy,” concerning all that this people call a conspiracy, nor be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled. יב.
13. YHWH of hosts, Him you shall set-apart. Let Him be your fear and let Him be your dread. יג.
14. “And He shall be for a set-apart place, but a stone of stumbling and a rock that makes for falling to both the houses of Yisra’el, as a trap and a snare to the inhabitants of Yerushalayim. יד.
15. “And many among them shall stumble and fall and be broken and snared and taken.” טו.
16. Bind upon the witness and seal the Torah among my taught ones. טז.
17. And I shall wait on YHWH, who hides His face from the house of Ya’aqob. And I shall look for Him. יז.
18. Look, I and the children whom YHWH has given me–for signs and wonders in Yisra’el from YHWH of hosts, who dwells in Mount Tsiyon. יח.
19. And when they say to you, “Seek those who are mediums and wizards, who whisper and mutter,” should not a people seek their Elohim? Should they seek the dead on behalf of the living? יט.
20. To the Torah and to the witness! If they do not speak according to this Word, it is because they have no daybreak. כ.
21. And they shall pass through it hard pressed and hungry. And it shall be, when they are hungry, that they shall be wroth and curse their sovereign and their Elohim, looking upward. כא.
22. And they shall look to the earth and see distress and darkness, gloom of hard times and be driven into thick darkness. כב.
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.
2. The people who were walking in darkness have seen a great light; upon those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death a light has shone. א.
3. You shall increase the nation; You shall make its joy great. They shall rejoice before You, as in the joy of harvest, as men rejoice when they divide the spoil. ב.
4. For You shall break the yoke of his burden and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, as in the day of Midyan. ג.
5. For every boot of one trampling in tumult and coat rolled in blood, shall be used for burning and fuel of fire. ד.
6. For a child shall be born unto us, a Son shall be given unto us and the rule is on His shoulder. And His Name is called Wonder, Counselor, Strong El, Father of Continuity, Prince of Peace. ה.
7. Of the increase of His rule and peace there is no end, upon the throne of Dawid and over His reign, to establish it and sustain it with right-ruling and with righteousness from now on, even forever. The ardour of YHWH of hosts does this. ו.
8. YHWH sent a word against Ya’aqob and it has fallen on Yisra’el. ז.
9. And the people shall know, all of them, Ephrayim and the inhabitant of Shomeron, who say in pride and greatness of heart; ח.
10. “The bricks have fallen down, but we rebuild with hewn stones; the sycamores are cut down, but we replace them with cedars.” ט.
11.  And YHWH set up the adversaries of Retsin against him and stirred up his enemies, י.
12. The Arameans before and the Philistines behind. And they devour Yisra’el with an open mouth. With all his His displeasure has not turned back and His hand is still stretched out. יא.
13. And the people have not turned back to Him who smites them nor have they sought YHWH of hosts. יב.
14. And YHWH cuts off head and tail from Yisra’el, palm branch and reed in one day. יג.
15. Elder and highly respected, he is the head; the prophet who teaches falsehood, he is the tail. יד.
16. For the leaders of this people lead them astray and those who are guided by them are swallowed up. טו.
17. Therefore YHWH does not rejoice over their young men and has no compassion on their fatherless and widows; for everyone is defiled and evil and every mouth speaks foolishness. With all this, His displeasure has not turned back and His hand is still stretched out. טז.
18. For wrongness burns las the fire, it consumes thornbushes and weeds and sets the bushes of the forest ablaze and they roll up like rising smoke. יז.
19. The land shall be burned up by the wrath of YHWH of hosts and the people be as fuel for the fire. A man shall not spare his brother, יח.
20. and cut down on the right hand, but shall be hungry; and he devours on the left hand, but shall not be satisfied; each one devouring the flesh of his own arm. יט.
21. Menashsheh Ephrayim and Ephrayim Menashsheh; together they are against Yahudah. With all this His displeasure has not turned back and His hand is still stretched out.
10)1. Woe to those making unrighteous laws and writers who have prescribed toil. א.
2. To keep the needy back from right-ruling and to take what is right from the poor of My people, that widows become their prey and orphans their plunder. ב.
3. What shall you do on the day of visitation and to the ruin which comes from afar? To whom would you run for help? And where would you leave your wealth? ג.
4. “Without Me they shall bow down among the prisoners and fall among the slain.” With all this His displeasure has not turned back and His hand is still stretched out. ד.
5. “Woe to Ashshur, the rod of My displeasure and the staff in whose hand is My displeasure. ה.
6. “Against a defiled nation I send him and against the people of My wrath I command him to seize the spoil, to take the prey and to tread them down like the mud of the streets. ו.
7. “But he does not intend so, nor does his heart think so, for it is in his heart to destroy, and cut off not a few nations. ז.
8.”For he says, “Are not my princes sovereigns? ח.
9. ‘Is not Kalno like Karkemish? Is not Hamath like Arpad? Is not Shomeron like Damascus? ט.
10. ‘As my hand has found the reigns of the idols, whose carved images excelled those of Yerushalayim and Shomeron, י.
11. ‘as I have done to Shomeron and her idols, do I not do also to Yerushalayim and her idols?’ יא.
12. “And it shall be, when YHWH has performed all His work on Mount Tsiyon and on Yerushalayim, that I shall punish the fruit of the greatness of the heart of the sovereign of Ashshur and the boasting of his haughty looks. יב.
13. “For he has said, ‘By the power of my hand and by my wisdom I have done it, for I have been clever. I remove the boundaries of the people and have robbed their treasuries. I put down the inhabitants like a strong one. יג.
14. ‘And my hand finds the riches of the people like a nest. And I have gathered all the earth like forsaken eggs are gathered. And there was no one who moved his wing nor opened his mouth with even a peep.'” יד.
15. Would the axe boast itself over him who chops with it, or the saw exalt itself over him who saws with it? As a rod waving those who lift it up! As a staff lifting up that which is not wood! טו.
16. Therefore the Master, YHWH of hosts, sends leanness among his fat ones. And under his esteem he kindles a burning like the burning of a fire. טז.
17. And the Light of Yisra’el shall be for a fire and his Set-apart One for a flame. And it shall burn and devour his weeds and his thornbushes in one day. יז.
18. and consume the esteem of his forest and of his fertile field, both life and flesh. And they shall be as when a sick man wastes away, יח.
19. and the remaining trees of his forest shall be so few in number that a child records them. יט.
20. And in that day it shall be that the remnant of Yisra’el and those who have escaped of the house of Ya’aqob, never again lean upon him who defeated them, but shall lean upon YHWH, the Set-apart One of Yisra’el, in truth. כ.
21. A remnant shall return, the remnant of Ya’aqob, to the Mighty El. כא.
22. For though your people, O Yisra’el, be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return–a decisive end, overflowing with righteousness. כב.
23. For the Master YHWH of hosts is making a complete end, as decided, in the midst of all the earth. כג.
24. Therefore thus said the Master YHWH of hosts, “My people, who dwell in Tsiyon, be not afraid of Ashshur, who beats you with a rod and lifts up his staff against you, in the way of Mitsrayim. כד.
25. “For yet a little while and the displeasure shall be completed and My displeasure be to their destruction.” כה.
26. And YHWH of hosts stirs up a lash for him as the smiting of Midyan at the rock of Oreb. And as His rod was on the sea. so shall He lift it up in the way of Mitsrayim. כו.
27. And in that day it shall be that his burden is removed from your shoulder and his yoke from your neck and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing oil. כז.
28. He has come upon Ayath, he has passed Migron. At Mikmash he stored his supplies. כח.
29. They have gone through the pass, they have taken up lodging at Geba. Romah is afraid, Gib’ah of Sha’ul has fled. כט.
30. Lift of your voice, O daughter of Galliym! Listen, Layishah–O poor Anathoth! ל.
31. Madmenah has fled, the inhabitants of Gebim sought refuge. לא.
32. Yet he remains at Nob that day, he shakes his fist at the mountain of the daughter of Tsiyon, the hill of Yerushalayim. לב.
33. Look, the Master, YHWH of hosts, is lopping off a branch with an awesome crash and the tall ones are cut down and the lofty ones are laid low. לג.
34. And He shall cut down the thickets of the forest with iron and Lebanon shall fall as a mighty one!
11)1. And a rod shall come forth from the stump of Yishai and a Sprout from his roots shall bear fruit. א.
2.The Spirit of YHWH shall rest upon Him–the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of YHWH, ב.
3. and shall make Him breath in the fear of YHWH. And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes, nor decide by the hearing of His ears. ג.
4. But with righteousness He shall judge the poor and shall decide with straightness for the meek ones of the earth and shall smite the earth with the rod of His mouth and slay the wrong with the breath of His lips. ד.
5. And righteousness shall be the girdle of His loins and trustworthiness the girdle of His waist. ה.
6. And a wolf shall dwell with the lamb and a leopard lie down with the young goat and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together and a little child leads them. ו.
7. And a cow and a bear shall feed, their young ones lie down together and a lion eat straw like an ox. ז.
8. And the nursing child shall play by the cobra’s hole and the weaned child shall put his hand in the adder’s den. ח.
9. They do no evil nor destroy in all My set-apart mountain, for the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of YHWH as the waters cover the sea. ט.
10. And in that day there shall be a Root of Yishai, standing as a banner to the people. Unto Him the gentiles shall seek and His rest shall be esteem. י.
11. And it shall be in that day that YHWH sets His hand again a second time to recover the remnant of His people who are left, from Ashshur, from Mitsrayim, from Pathros, from Kush, from Eylam, from Shin’ar, from Hamath and from the islands of the sea. יא.
12. And He shall raise a banner for the nations and gather the outcasts of Yisra’el , and assemble the dispersed of Yahudah from the four corners of the earth. יב.
13. And the envy of Ephrayim shall turn aside and the adversaries of Yahudah be cut off. Ephrayim shall not envy Yahudah and Yahudah not trouble Ephrayim. יג.
14. But they shall fly down upon the shoulder of the Philistines toward the west; together they plunder the people of the east, their hand stretching forth on Edom and Mo’ab and the children of Ammon shall be subject to them. יד.
15. And YHWH shall put under the ban the tongue of the Sea of Mitsrayim and He shall wave His hand over the River with the might of His Spirit and shall smite it in the seven streams and shall cause men to tread it in sandals. טו.
16. And there shall be a highway for the remnant of His people, those left from Ashshur, as it was for Yisra’el in the day when he came up from the land of Mitsrayim.
12)1. And in that day you shall say, “I thank You YHWH, though You were enraged with me, Your displeasure has turned back and You have comforted me. א.
2. “See, El is my deliverance, I trust and am not afraid. For Yah, YHWH, is my strength and my song and He has become my deliverance.” ב.
3. And you shall draw water with joy from the fountains of deliverance. ג.
4. And in that day you shall say, “Praise YHWH, call upon His Name; make known His deeds among the peoples, make mention that His Name is exalted. ד.
5. “Sing to YHWH, For He has done excellently; this is known in all the earth. ה.
6. “Cry aloud and shout, O inhabitant of Tsiyon, for great is the Set-apart One of Yisra’el in your midst!”

13)1. The message concerning Babel which Yeshayahu son of Amots saw.

א.

2. “Lift up a banner on the high mountain, raise your voice to them; wave your hand, let them enter the gates of the nobles.

ב.

3. “I have commanded My set-apart ones; I have also called My mighty men for My displeasure, My proudly exulting ones.”

ג.

4. The noise of an uproar in the mountains, like that of many people! A noise of uproar of the reigns of gentiles gathered together! YHWH of hosts is gathering an army for battle.

ד.

5. They are coming from a distant land, from the end of the heavens, even YHWH  and His weapons of displeasure, to destroy all the earth.

ה.

6.Howl, for the day of YHWH is near! It comes as a destruction from the Almighty.

ו.

7. Therefore, all hands shall go limp, every man’s heart melts.

ז.

8. And they shall be afraid. Pangs and sorrows take hold of them, they are in pain as a woman in labour; they are amazed at one another, their faces aflame!

ח.

9. See, the day of YHWH is coming, fierce, with wrath and heat of displeasure, to lay the earth waste and destroy its sinners from it.

ט.

10. For the stars of the heavens and their constellations do not give off their light. The sun shall be dark at its rising and the moon not send out its light.

יג.

14. “And it shall be as the hunted gazelle and as a sheep that no man takes up–every man turns to his own people and everyone flees to his own people and everyone flees to his own land.

יד.

15.”Whoever is found is thrust through, and everyone taken falls by the sword.

טו.

16. “And their children are dashed to pieces before their eyes, their houses plundered and their wives ravished.

יט.

20. “She shall never be inhabited, nor be settled from generation to generation; nor shall the Arabian pitch tents there, nor shepherds rest their flocks there.

כ.

21. “But wild beasts of the desert shall lie there and their houses shall be filled with owls. And ostriches shall dwell there and wild goats frolic there.

כא.

22. “And hyenas shall cry in their citadels and jackals in their pleasant palaces. And her time is near to come and her days are not drawn out.”

14)1. Because YHWH has compassion on Ya’aqob and shall again choose Yisra’el and give them rest in their own land. And the strangers shall join them and they shall cling to the house of Ya’aqob.

א.

2. And the peoples shall take them and bring them to their own place. And the house of Yisra’el shall possess them for servants in the land of YHWH. And they shall make captives of their captors and rule over their oppressors.

ב.

ג.

16. “Those who see you stare at you and ponder over you, saying, ‘Is this the man who made the earth tremble, who shook reigns.

טז.

17. who made the world as a wilderness and destroyed its cities, who would not open the house of his prisoners?’

יז.

18. “All the sovereigns of the gentiles, all of them, were laid in esteem, everyone in his own house;

יח.

19. “but you have been thrown from your grave like an abominable branch, like the garment of those who are slain, thrust through with a sword, who go down to the stones of the pit, like a trampled corpse.

יט.

20. “You are not joined with them in burial, for you have destroyed your land and slain your people. Let the seeds of evil-doers never be mentioned.

כ.

21. “Prepare his children for slaughter, because of the crookedness of their fathers, lest they rise up and possess the land and fill the face of the world with cities.”

כא.

22. “I shall rise up against them,” declares YHWH of hosts, “and shall cut off from Babel the name, remnant, offspring and descendant.” declares YHWH.

כב.

23. “And I shall make it a possession for the porcupine and marshes of muddy water; and shall sweep it with the broom of destruction,declares YHWH of hosts.

כג.

24. YHWH of hosts has sworn, saying, “Truly, as I have planned, so shall it be; and as I have purposed, so it stands;

כד.

25. “To break Ashshur in My land and tread him down on My mountains. And his yoke shall be removed from them and his burden removed from their shoulders.

כה.

26. “This is the council that is counselled for all the earth and this is the hand that is stretched out over all the nations.

כו.

27. “For YHWH of hosts has counselled and who annuls it? And His hand that is stretched out, who turns it back?”

כז.
28. This is the message which came in the year that Sovereign Ahaz died; כח.
29. “Do not rejoice, all you of Philistia, that the rod that smote you is broken; for out of the serpent’s roots comes forth an adder and its offspring is a fiery flying serpent. כט.
30. “And the first-born of the poor shall feed and the needy lie down in safety. And I shall kill your roots with scarcity of food and it shall slay your remnant. ל.
31. “Howl, O gate! Cry, O city! Melt away, all you of Philistia! For smoke shall come from the north and there is no stranger in his ranks.” לא.
32. And what does one answer the messengers of a nation? “That YHWH has founded Tsiyon and the poor of His people take refuge in it.”
15)1. The message concerning Mo’ab. Because in the night Ar of Mo’ab was laid waste, was silenced! Because in the night Qir of Mo’ab was laid waste, was silenced! א.
2. He has gone up to the house and Dibon, to the high places to weep. Mo’ab is wailing over Nebo and over Meydeba; on all their heads is baldness and every beard is cut off. ב.
3. In their streets they shall put on sackcloth; on the tops of their houses and in their streets everyone wails, weeping bitterly. ג.
4. And Heshbon and El’aleh cry out; their voice shall be heard as far a Yahats. Therefore the armed ones of Mo’ab shout; his being shall tremble within him. ד.
5. My own heart is toward Ma’ab; her fugitives cry unto Tso’ar, like a three-year old heifer. For by the ascent of Luhith they go up with weeping; for in the way of Horonayim they raise a cry of destruction. ה.
6. For the waters of Nimrim are wastes, for the green grass has withered away, the grass fails, there is not greenness. ו.
7. Therefore the wealth, acquired and stored up, they take away to the wadi of the Willows. ז.
8. For the cry has gone all around the borders of Mo’ab, its wailing to Eglayim and its wailing to Be’er Elim. ח.
9. “For the waters of Dimon shall be filled with blood; for I shall bring more upon Dimon, lions upon him who escapes from Mo’ab and on the remnant of the land.”
16)1. Send a lamb to the ruler of the land, from Sela to the wilderness, to the mountain of the daughter of Tsiyon. א.
2. And it shall be, like a wandering bird, a nest thrown out, so are the daughters of Mo’ab at the fords of Arnon. ב.
3. “Bring counsel, execute judgment; make your shadow like the night in the middle of the day; hide the outcasts, do not betray him who escapes. ג.
4. “Let My outcasts dwell with you, O Mo’ab; be a shelter to them from the face of the ravager. For the oppressor has met his end, destruction has ceased, those trampling down have perished from the land. ד.
5. “And in kindness the throne shall be established. And One shall sit on it in truth, in the Tent of Dawid, judging and seeking right-ruling and speeding righteousness.” ה.
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.
