Appendix A
Promises Concerning
The Messiah & His Times


page 142


33.14 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will perform that good thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel and the house of Judah.
33.15 In Those Days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of Righteousness to grow up unto David: and He shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land.
33.16 In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: And this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The Lord Our Righteousness. 


36.24 For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.
36.25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
36.26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
36.27 And I will put my spirit within you and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
36.28 And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.
36.31 Then shall ye remember your own evil ways, and your doings that were not good, and shall loath yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations.

page 143

36.32 Not for your sakes do I this, saith the Lord God, be it known unto you: be ashamed and confounded for your own ways, O house of Israel.
36.36 Then the heathen that are left round about you shall know that I the Lord build the ruined places, and land that that was desolate: I the Lord have spoken it, and I will do it.
37.21 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:
37.22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:
37.24 And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.
37.25 And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant... and my servant David shall be their prince forever.
37.26 Moreover I will make a Covenant of Peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.
37.27 My Tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God and they shall be my people.
37.28 And the heathen shall know that I the Lord do sanctify Israel when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore. 


10.13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me: and I remained there with the kings of Persia.

12.1 And at that time (referring to the King, great flatterer and deceiver who places the Abomination of Desolation and the tabernacles of his palace between the seas) shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.

page 144

12.2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.


12.9 And I that am the lord thy God from the land of Egypt will yet make thee to dwell in tabernacles, as in the days of the solemn feast.


20.35 And I will bring you into the wilderness of the people, and there will I plead with you face to face.
20.36 Like as I pleaded with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so will I plead with you, saith the Lord God.


3.1 For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem,
3.2 I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.
3.14 Multitudes, multitudes in the Valley of Decision: for the Day of the Lord is near in the Valley of Decision. 


5.18 Woe unto you that desire the day of the Lord! To what end is it for you? The day of the Lord is darkness, and not light.

9.8 Behold, the eyes of the Lord God are upon the sinful kingdom, and I will destroy it from off the face of the earth; saving that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob, saith the Lord.
9.9 For, Lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth.
9.10 All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword, which say, the evil shall not overtake nor prevent us.

page 145

9.11 In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old:
9.13 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper...


4.6 In that day (referring to the day of peace, each man under his vine and his fig tree), saith the Lord, will I assemble her that halteth, and I will gather her that is driven out, and her that I have afflicted;
4.7 And I will make her that halteth a remnant, and her that was cast far off a strong nation: and the Lord shall reign over them in mount Zion from henceforth, ever for ever.
4.8 And thou, O tower of the flock, the strong hold of the daughter of Zion, unto thee shall it come, even the first dominion; the kingdom shall come to the daughter of Jerusalem.
4.9 Now why dost thou cry out aloud? Is there no king in thee? Is thy counsellor perished? For pangs have taken thee as a woman in travail.
4.10 Be in pain, and labour to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in travail: for now shalt thou go forth out of the city, and thou shalt dwell in the field, and thou shalt go even to Babylon; there shalt thou be delivered; there the Lord shall redeem thee from the hand of thine enemies.

5.2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.
5.3 Therefore, will he give them up, until the time that she which travaileth hath brought forth: then the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel.
5.4 And He shall stand and feed in the strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God; and they shall abide: for now shall He be great unto the ends of the earth.
5.5 And this man shall be the peace, when the Assyrian shall come into our land: and when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight principal men.
5.7 And the remnant of Jacob shall be in the midst of many people as a dew from the lord..
5.8 And the remnant of Jacob shall be among the Gentiles in the midst of many people as a lion among the beasts of the forest..

page 146

7.11 In the day that thy walls are to be built, in that day shall the decree be far removed.
7.15 According to the days of thy coming out of the land of Egypt will I shew unto Him marvellous things.
7.16 The nations shall see and be confounded at all their might: they shall lay their hand upon their mouth, their ears shall be deaf. 


2.14 For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the Glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.
2.15 Woe unto him that giveth his neighbor drink [vanity], that puttest thy bottle to him, and makest him drunken also, that thou mayest look on their nakedness.
2.16 Thou art filled with shame for glory: drink thou also, and let thy foreskin be uncovered: the cup of the Lord's right hand shall be turned unto thee, and shameful spewing shall be on thy glory.
2.17 For the violence of Lebanon shall cover thee...

3.4 And his brightness was as the light; he had horns coming out of his hand: and there was the hiding of his power.
3.11 The sun and the moon stood still in their habitation: at the light of thine arrows they went, and at the shining of thy glittering spear.
3.12 Thou didst march through the land in indignation, thou didst thresh the heathen in anger.
3.17 Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls. 


1.7 Hold thy peace at the presence of the Lord God: for the day of the Lord is at hand: for the Lord hath prepared a sacrifice, he hath bid his guests.
1.8 And it shall come to pass in the day of the Lord's sacrifice, that I will punish the princes, and the king's children, and all such as are clothed with strange apparel.

page 147

1.12 And it shall come to pass at that time, that I will search Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men that are settled on their lees: that say in their heart, the Lord will not do good, neither will do evil.
1.14 The great day of the Lord is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the Lord: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.
1.15 That day is a Day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,
1.17 And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the Lord: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.

2.3 Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord's anger.

3.1 Woe to her that is filthy and polluted, to the oppressing city!
3.4 Her prophets are light and treacherous persons: her priests have polluted the sanctuary, they have done violence to the law.
3.8 Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the Lord, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.
3.9 For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the Lord, to serve him with one consent.
3.19 Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame.
3.20 At that time will I bring you again, even in the time that I gather you: for I will make you a name and a praise among all people of the earth, when I turn back your captivity before your eyes, saith the Lord. 


2.6 For thus saith the Lord of hosts; yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the seas, and the dry land;
2.7 And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the Lord of Hosts.
2.8 The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the Lord of Hosts.
2.9 The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the Lord of Hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of Hosts.

3.21 Speak to Zerubbabel, governor of Judah, saying, I will shake the heavens and the earth;

page 148

3.22 And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother.
3.23 In that day, saith the Lord of Hosts, will I take thee, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shelaltiel, saith the Lord, and will make thee as a signet: for I have chosen thee, saith the Lord of Hosts. 


1.12 Then the angel of the Lord answered and said, O Lord, of Hosts, how long wilt thou not have mercy on Jerusalem and on the cities of Judah, against which thou hast had indignation these three score and ten years?
1.13 And the Lord answered the angel that talked with me with good words and comfortable words.
1.16 Therefore thus saith the Lord; I am returned to Jerusalem with mercies: my house shall be built in it, saith the Lord of Hosts, and a line shall be stretched forth upon Jerusalem.

2.4 And said unto him, run, speak to this young man, saying Jerusalem shall be inhabited as towns without walls for the multitude of men and cattle therein.
2.5 For I, saith the Lord, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her.
2.6 Ho, ho, come forth, and flee from the land of the north, saith the Lord: for I have spread you abroad as the four winds of the heaven, saith the Lord.
2.10 Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the Lord.
2.11 And many nations shall be joined to the Lord in that day, and shall be my people: and I will dwell in the midst of thee, and thou shalt know that the Lord of Hosts hath sent me unto thee.

3.8 Hear now, O Joshua, the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for They are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my servant the Branch.
3.9 For behold the stone that I have laid before Joshua; upon one stone shall be seven eyes: behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, saith the Lord of Hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day.
3.10 In that day, saith the Lord of Hosts, shall ye call every man his neighbor under the Vine and under the Fig Tree.

page 149

4.4 So I answered and spake to the angel that talked with me, saying What are these my Lord? (referring to the gold candlestick, its seven lamps and their seven pipes, and the Two Olive Trees beside it)
4.5 Then the angel that talked with me answered and said unto me, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, no, my Lord.
4.6 Then He answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the Word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of Hosts.
4.7 Who are thou, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it.
4.8 Moreover the Word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
4.9 The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that the Lord of Hosts hath sent me unto you.
4.10 For who hath despised the day of small things? For they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the Lord, which run to and fro through the whole earth.
4.11 The answered I, and said unto him, What are these Two Olive Trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof?
4.12 And I answered again, and said unto Him, What be these Two Olive Branches which through the Two Golden Pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves?
4.13 And He answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, no, my Lord.
4.14 The said He, These are the Two Anointed Ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth.

6.11 Then take silver and gold, and make crowns, and set them upon the head of Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest;
6.12 And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the Lord of Hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The Branch; and he shall grow up out of his place, and He shall build the Temple of the Lord.

page 150

6.13 Even he shall build the temple of the Lord; and he shall be the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and He shall be a priest upon his throne: and the Counsel of Peace shall be between them both.
6.15 And they that are far off shall come and build in the temple of the Lord, and ye shall know that the Lord of hosts hath sent me unto you. And this shall come to pass, if ye will diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God.

7.9 Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, saying, Execute true judgment and shew mercy and compassions every man to his brother:
7.10 And oppress not the Widow, nor the Fatherless, the stranger, nor the poor; and let none of you imagine evil against his brother in your heart.
7.11 But they refused to hearken, and pulled away the shoulder, and stopped their ears, that they should not hear.
7.12 Yea, they made their hearts as an adamant stone, lest they should hear the law, and the words which the Lord of Hosts hath sent in his spirit by the former prophets: therefore came a great Wrath from the Lord of Hosts.
7.14 But I scattered them with a whirlwind among all the nations whom they knew not. Thus the land was desolate after them, that no man passed through nor returned: for they laid the pleasant land desolate.

8.2 Thus saith the Lord of hosts; I was jealous for Zion with great jealousy, and I was jealous for her with great fury.
8.3 Thus saith the Lord: I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a City of Truth; and the mountain of the Lord of hosts the Holy Mountain.
8.21 And the inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, Let us go speedily to pray before the Lord, and to seek the Lord of Hosts: I will go also.
8.22 Yea, many people and strong nations shall come to seek the Lord of Hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the Lord.
8.23 Thus saith the Lord of Hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.

9.8 And I will encamp about mine house because of the army, because of him that passeth by, and because of him that returneth: and no oppressor shall pass through them any more: for now have I seen with mine eyes.

page 151

9.9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.
9.10 And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim and the horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off: and He shall speak peace unto the heathen: and his dominion shall be from sea even to sea, and from the river even to the ends of the earth.

11.1 Open thy doors, O Lebanon, that the fire may devour thy cedars.
11.3 There is a voice of the howling of the shepherds; for their glory is spoiled: a voice of the roaring of young lions; for the pride of Jordan is spoiled.
11.4 Thus saith the Lord My God; Feed the flock of the Slaughter; whose possessors slay them and hold themselves not guilty: and they that sell them say, Blessed be the Lord; for I am rich: and their own shepherds pity them not.
11.7 And I will feed the flock of slaughter, even you, O poor of the flock. And I took unto me Two Staves; the one I called Beauty, and the other I called Bands; and I fed the flock.
11.9 Then said I, I will not feed you: that that dieth, let it die; and that that is to be cut off, let it be cut off; and let the rest eat every one the flesh of another.
11.10 And I took my staff, even Beauty, and cut it asunder, that I might break my covenant which I had made with all the people.
11.12 And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forebear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver.
11.13 And the Lord said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the Lord.
11.14 Then I cut asunder mine other staff, even Bands, that I might break the brotherhood between Judah and Israel.
11.15 And the Lord said unto me, Take unto thee yet the instruments of a foolish shepherd.
11.16 For, lo, I will raise up a shepherd in the land, which shall not visit those that be cut off, neither shall seek the young one, nor heal that that is broken, nor feed that that standeth still: but he shall eat the flesh of the fat, and tear their claws in pieces.
11.17 Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock!

12.2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.
12.3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
12.4 In that day, saith the Lord, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness.

page 152

12.8 In that day shall the Lord defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and He that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the Angel of the Lord before them.
12.9 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
12.10 And I will pour upon the House of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

13.4 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the prophets shall be ashamed every one of his vision, when he hath prophesied; neither shall they wear a rough garment to deceive:
13.5 But He shall say, I am no prophet, I am an husbandman; for man taught me to keep cattle from my youth.
13.6 And one shall say unto Him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then He shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends. 


3.1 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the Messenger of the Covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, He shall come, saith the Lord of Hosts.

4.1 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of Hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
4.2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Son of Righteousness arise with healing in his wings: and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
4.5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord:
4.6 And heshall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

page 153


2.2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
2.19 And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the Lord, and for the glory of His Majesty, when He ariseth to shake terribly the earth.

4.1 And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach.
4.2 In that day shall the Branch of the Lord be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and comely for them that are escaped of Israel.
4.3 And it shall come to pass that He that is left in Zion, and He that remaineth in Jerusalem, shall be called Holy, even every one that is written among the living in Jerusalem.
4.4 When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst there of by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning.
4.5 And the Lord will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a defense.
4.6 And there shall be a Tabernacle for a shadow in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a covert from storm and rain.

5.1 Now will I sing to my wellbeloved a song of my beloved touching his vineyard...and he looked that it bring forth grapes and it brought forth wild grapes.
5.5 And now go to; I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard. I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten up; and break down the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down.
5.6 And I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but there shall come up briers and thorns: I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it.
5.14 Therefore, Hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.

page 154

5.25 Therefore is the anger of the Lord kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcasses were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
5.26 And He will lift up an ensign to the nations from far, and will hiss unto them from the end of the earth: and, behold, they shall come with speed swiftly.
5.30 And in that day they shall roar against them like the roaring of the sea: and if one look unto the land, behold darkness and sorrow, and the light is darkened in the heavens thereof.

7.11 Ask thee a sign of the Lord thy God; ask it either in the depth or in the height above.
7.13 And he said, Hear ye now, O house of David; is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will ye weary My God also?
7.14 Therefore, the Lord Himself shall give you a sign; behold, a Virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
7.23 And it shall come to pass in that day, that every place shall be, where there were a thousand vines at a thousand silverlings, it shall even be for briers and thorns.
7.24 With arrows and with bows shall men come thither; because all the land shall become briers and thorns.

8.18 Behold, I and the children whom the Lord hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the Lord of Hosts, which dwelleth in Mount Zion.

9.2 The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.
9.5 For every battle of the warrior is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but this shall be with burning and fuel of fire.
9.6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.
9.7 Of the increase of His government and peace, there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth ever for ever. The zeal of the Lord of Hosts will perform this.

page 155

9.8 The Lord sent a word into Jacob and it hath lighted upon Israel.

10.3 And what will ye do in the day of visitation, and in the desolation which shall come from far?
10.13 For he saith, by the strength of my hand I have done it, and by My Wisdom..
10.14 And my hand hath found as a nest the riches of the people: and as one gathereth eggs that are left, have I gathered all the earth; and there was none that moved the wing, or opened the mouth, or peeped.
10.15 Shall the ax boast itself against him that heweth therewith?...
10.16 Therefore shall the Lord, the Lord of Hosts, send among his fat one leanness; and under his glory He shall kindle a burning like the burning of fire.
10.17 And the light of Israel shall be for a fire, and His Holy One for a flame: and it shall burn and devour his thorns and his briers in one day.
10.18 And shall consume the glory of his forest, and of his fruitful field, both soul and body; and they shall be as when a standard bearer fainteth.
10.19 And the rest of the trees of his forest shall be few, that a child may write them.
10.20 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall be no more again stay upon him that smote them; but shall stay upon the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, in Truth.
10.21 The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, unto the Mighty God.
10.24 Therefore thus saith the Lord God of hosts, O my people that dwellest in Zion, be not afraid of the Assyrian: he shall smite thee with a rod, and shall lift up his staff against thee, after the manner of Egypt.
10.25 For yet a very little while, and the indignation shall cease, and mine anger in their destruction.
10.26 And the Lord of hosts shall stir up a scourge for him according to the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb: and as his rod was upon the sea, so shall he lift it up after the manner of Egypt.
10.27 And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.
10.34 And he shall cut down the thickets of the forest with iron, and Lebanon shall fall by a mighty one.

11.1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of His Roots:

page 156

11.2 And the Spirit of the Lord 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 the Lord.
11.3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the Lord: and He shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears.
11.4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the Rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips will he slay the wicked.
11.5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.
11.6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid..
11.9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.
11.10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.
11.11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set His Hand again The Second Time to recover the remnant of His People, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt...and from the islands of the sea.
11.12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.

16.4 Let mine outcasts dwell with thee, Moab; be thou a covert to them from the face of the spoiler: for the extortioner is at the end, the spoil ceaseth, the oppressors are consumed out of the land.
16.5 And in mercy shall the throne be established: and He shall sit upon it in truth in the Tabernacle of David, judging, and seeking judgment, and hasting righteousness.

24.1 Behold, the Lord maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof.

26.15 Thou hast increased the nation, O Lord, thou hast increased the nation: thou art glorified: thou hadst removed it far unto all the end of the earth.
26.18 We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen.

page 157

27.6 He shall cause them that come of Jacob to take root: Israel shall blossom and bud, and fill the face of the world with fruit.
27.7 Hath He smitten him, as he smote those that smote Him? Or is He slain according to the slaughter of them that are slain by Him?
27.8 In measure, when it shooteth forth, thou wilt debate with it: He stayeth his Rough Wind in the day of the East Wind.

28.2 Behold, the Lord hath a Mighty and Strong one, which as a tempest of hail and a destroying storm, as a flood of mighty waters overflowing, shall cast down to the earth with the hand.
28.5 In that day shall the Lord of hosts be for a crown of glory, and for a diadem of beauty, unto the residue of his people.
28.6 And for a spirit of judgment to him that sitteth in judgment, and for strength to them that turn the battle to the gate.
28.9 Whom shall He teach knowledge? And whom shall He make to understand doctrine? Them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.
28.10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line; here a little, and there a little: For [with Stammering lips and Another Tongue will He speak to this people.
28.12 To whom He said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest: and this the refreshing: yet they would not hear.
28.13 But the Word of the Lord was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.
28.14 Wherefore hear the Word of the Lord, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem.
28.15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
28.16 Therefore, thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.

page 158

28.17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.
28.18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.
28.21 For the Lord shall rise up as in mount Perazim, He shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that He may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act.
28.22 Now therefore be ye not mockers, lest your bands be made strong: for I have heard from the Lord God of hosts a consumption, even determined upon the whole earth.
28.24Doth the plowman plow all day to sow?...
28.26 For his God doth instruct him to discretion, and doth teach him.

29.13 Wherefore the Lord said, forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honor me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
29.14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the Wisdom of their Wise Men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.
29.15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the Lord, and their works are in the dark, and say, Who seeth us? And who knoweth us?
29.16 Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter's clay: For shall the work say of Him that made it, He made me not? Or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?
29.17 Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest?
29.18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book (The Sealed Book which is opened up to them) and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.

30.26 Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the Lord bindeth up the breach of His People, and [Servant] his tongue as a devouring fire.

page 159

30.27 Behold, the name of the Lord cometh from far, burning with his anger, and the burden thereof is heavy:his lips are full of indignation, and his tongue as a devouring fire.
30.28 And His breath, as an overflowing stream, shall reach to the midst of the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of vanity: andthere shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people, causing them to err.

32.1 Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment.
32.2 And a man shall be as a hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land.

33.3 At the noise of the tumult the people fled; at the lifting up of thyself the nations scattered.
33.4 And your spoil shall be gathered like the gathering of the caterpillar: as the running to and fro of locusts shall He run upon them.
33.8 The highways lie waste, the wayfaring man ceaseth: he that broken the covenant, he that despised the cities, he regardeth no man.
33.9 The earth mourneth and languisheth: Lebanon is ashamed and hewn down: Sharon is like a wilderness; and Bashan and Carmel shake off their fruits.
33.10 Now will I rise, saith the Lord; now will I be exalted; now will I lift up myself.
33.17 Thine eyes shall see the King in His Beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off.
33.20 Look upon Zion, the city of our solemnities: thine eyes shall see Jerusalem a quiet habitation, a tabernacle that shall not be taken down; not one of the stakes thereof shall ever be removed, neither shall any of the cords thereof be broken.

40.10 Behold, the Lord God will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for Him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before Him.

page 160

40.15 Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, He taketh up the isles as a very little thing.
40.16 And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient for a burnt offering.

42.1 Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon Him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.
42.2 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.
42.3 A bruised Reed shall He not break, and the Smoking Flax shall He not quench: He shall bring forth judgment unto Truth.
42.4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till He have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for His Law.
42.6 I the Lord have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a Light of the Gentiles.
42.7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.
42.16 I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.
42.13 The Lord shall go forth as a mighty man, He shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: He shall cry, yea, roar; He shall prevail against His enemies.
42.14 I have long time holden my peace; I have been still, and refrained myself: now I will cry like a travailingwoman;I will destroy and devour at once.

43.1 But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.
43.5 Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the East, and gather thee from the West.

44.1Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant; and Israel, whom I have chosen:
44.2 Thus saith the Lord that made thee and formed thee from the womb, which will help thee; Fear not, O Jacob, my servant; and thou, Jesurun, whom I have chosen.

page 161

44.3 For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring:
44.4 And they shall spring up as among the grass, as willows by the water courses.
44.5 One shall say, I am the Lord's; and another shall call Himself by the name of Jacob: and another shall subscribe with His hand unto the Lord, and surname Himself by the Name of Israel.
44.24 Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer, and He that formed thee from the womb, I am the Lord that maketh all things...
44.28 That saith of Cyrus, he is my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasure: even saying to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be built; and to the Temple, Thy foundation shall be laid.

45.7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.

48.10 Listen O isles, unto Me: and hearken, ye people from far; The Lord hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath He made mention of my name.

49.2 And he hath made my mouth like a sharp Sword; in the shadow of His Hand hath He hid Me; and made me a polished shaft; in His quiver hath He hid Me;
49.3 And said unto me, Thou art my Servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.
49.6 And he said, It is a light thing that Thou shoudest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the Preserved of Israel;I will also give thee for a Light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest bemy salvation unto the end of the earth.
49.8 Thus saith the Lord, in an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of Salvation have I helped thee: and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages.
49.9 That thou mayest say to the prisoners, Go forth; to them that are in darkness, Shew yourselves. They shall feed in the ways and their pastures shall be in all high places.
49.10 They shall not hunger or thirst...
49.20 The children which thou shalt have, after thou hast lost the other, shall say again in thine ears, The place is too strait for me: give place to me that I may dwell.
49.21 Then shalt thou say in thine heart, Who hath begotten me these, seeing I have lost my children, and am desolate, a captive, and removing to and fro? And who hath brought up these? Behold, I was left alone; these, where had they been?

page 162

49.22 Thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I will lift up mine hand to the Gentiles, and set up my standard to the people: and they shall bring thy sons In their arms, and thy daughters shall be carried upon their shoulders.

50.4 The Lord God hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a Word in season to him that is weary: He wakeneth morning by morning, He wakenth mine ear to hear as the learned.
50.5 The Lord God hath opened mine ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away back.
50.6 I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting.
50.7 For the Lord God will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed.
50.8 He is near that justifieth me; who will contend with me? Let us stand together: who is mine adversary? Let him come near to me.
50.11 Behold, all ye that kindle a fire, that compass yourselves about with sparks: walk in the light of your fire, and in the sparks that ye have kindled. This shall ye have of Mine Hand: Ye shall lie down in Sorrow.

51.4 Hearken unto me, my people; and give ear unto me, O my nation: for a law shall proceed from me, and I will make my judgment to rest for a Light of the people.
51.5 My righteousness is near; my salvation is gone forth, and mind arms shall judge the people; the isles shall wait upon me, and on mine arm shall they trust.
51.9 Awake, awake, put on strength O arm of the Lord; awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of Old. Art thou not it that hath cut Rahab, and wounded the Dragon?
51.10 I, even I, am He that comforteth you: who art thou, that thou shoudest be afraid of a man that shall die, and of the son of man which shall be made as grass:
51.15 But I am the Lord thy God, that divided the sea, whose waves roared: The Lord of Hosts is His Name.
51.16 AndI have put my words in Thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of my hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people.

page 163

52.7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of Him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith of Zion, Thy God Reigneth!
52.8 Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for theyshall see eye to eye, when the Lord shall bring again Zion.
52.9 Break forth into joy, sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem: for the Lord hath comforted His People. He hath Redeemed Jerusalem.
52.10 The Lord hath made bare His Holy Arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the Salvation of our God.
52.13 Behold, My Servant shall deal prudently, He shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high.
52.14 As many were astonied at thee; His visage was so marred more than any man, and His form more than the sons of men:
52.15 So shall he sprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider.

53.1 Who hath believed our report? And to whom is the arm of the Lord Revealed?
53.2 For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: He hath no form nor comeliness: And when We shall see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him.
53.3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; He was despised, and we esteemed Him not.
53.4 Surely He hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
53.5 ButHe was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with his stripes we are healed.
53.6 All we like sheep have gone astray: we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
53.7 He was oppressed, and He was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so He openeth not his mouth.

page 164

53.8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare His Generation? ForHe was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
53.9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in death: because He had done no violence, neither was any deceit in His Mouth.
53.10 Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him: he hath put Him to grief: when thou shalt make His soul an offering for sin, He shall see His Seed. He shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand.
53.11 He shall see the Travail of His Soul, and shall be satisfied: by His knowledge shall my Righteous Servant justify many; for He shall bear their iniquities.
53.12 Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great, and He shall divide the spoil with the strong; because He hath poured out His Soul unto death: and He was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

54.1 Sing, O barren, Thou that dist not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: For more are the children of the desolate than the children of the Married Wife, saith the Lord.
54.2 Enlarge the place of thy Tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes.
54.3 For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.
54.4 Fear not: for thou shalt not be ashamed: neither be thou confounded: for thou shalt not be put to shame: for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth and shalt not remember the Reproach of thy Widowhood any more.
54.5 For Thine Maker is thine Husband; the Lord of Hosts is His Name; and Thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; the God of the Whole earth shall He be called.
54.6 For the Lord hath called thee as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth, when thou wast refused, saith thy God.
54.7 For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee.
54.8 In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the Lord Thy Redeemer.
54.9 For this is as the waters of Noah unto me: for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth, so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee.

55.4 Behold, I have given Him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people.
55.5 Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not, and nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee because of the Lord thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel, for He hath glorified thee.
55.6 Seek ye the Lord while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near.

page 165

59.19 So shall theyfear the name of the Lord from the West, and His glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.
59.20 And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the Lord.

60.1 Arise, shine; for thy Light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.
60.2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and His Glory shall be seen upon thee.
60.3 And the Gentiles shall come to Thy Light, and kings to the brightness of Thy Rising.
60.9 Surely the isles shall wait for me, and the Ships of Tarshish first, to bring thy sons from afar, their silver and their gold with them, unto the name of the Lord Thy God, and to the Holy One of Israel, because He hath glorified thee.
60.10 And the sons of the strangers shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister unto thee: for in my wrath I smote thee, but in my favour have I had mercy on thee.
60.15 Whereas thou hast been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through thee, I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations.
60.16 Thou shalt also suck the milk of the Gentiles, and shalt suck the breast of kings: and thou shalt know that I the Lord am Thy Saviour and Thy Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.
60.17 For brass I will bring gold, and for iron I will bring silver, and for wood brass, and for stones iron: I will also make thy officers peace, and thine exactors righteousness.

61.6 But ye shall be named the Priests of the Lord: men shall call you the Ministers of Our God; ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in theirGlory shall Ye boast yourselves.
61.7 For your shame you shall have double: and for confusion They shall rejoice in Their portion: Therefore, in Their land They shall possess the Double: everlasting Joy shall be unto Them.
61.8 For I the Lord love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct Their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with Them.
61.9 And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that They are the Seed which the Lord hath blessed.

63.11 Then he remembered the days of old, Moses, and his people, saying, Where is he that brought them up out of the sea with the shepherd of his flock? Where is He that put His Holy Spirit within Him?
63.12 That led them by the right hand of Moses with his glorious arm, dividing the water before them, to make himself an everlasting name?

page 166

65.1 I am sought of them that asked not for me; I am found of them that sought me not: I said, Behold me, behold me, unto a nation that was not called by my name.

66.1 Thus saith the Lord, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? And where is the place of my rest?
66.12 For thus saith the Lord, behold, I will extend peace like a river, and the Glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream: then shall ye suck, ye shall be borne upon her sides, and be dandled on Her knees.
66.19 And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those that escape of them unto the nations, to Tarshish, Put, and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal, and Javan, to the isles far off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen My Glory; and they shall declare My Glory among the Gentiles.
66.21 And I will also take of Them for priests and for Levites, saith the Lord.


Appendix B
The Curse


9.8 Their tongue is an arrow shot out; it speaketh peaceably to his neighbor with his mouth, but in heart he layeth his wait.
9.9 Shall I not visit them for these things? saith the Lord: shall not my soul be avenged on a nation as this?
9.10 For the mountains will I take up a weeping and wailing, and for the habitations of the wilderness a lamentation, because they are burned up, so that none can pass through them; neither can men hear the voice of the cattle; both the fowl of the heavens and the beast are fled; they are gone.
9.11 And I will make Jerusalem heaps, and a den of dragons; and I will make the cities of Judah desolate, without inhabitant.
9.12 Who is the wise man, that may understand this? And who is He to whom the mouth of the Lord hath spoken, that He may declare it, for what the Land perisheth and is burned up like a wilderness, that none passeth through?
9.13 And the Lord saith, because they have forsaken my law which I set before them, and have not obeyed my voice, neither walked therein;

page 167

9.14 But have walked after the imagination of their own heart, and after Ba'alim, which their fathers taught them:
9.15 Therefore, thus saith the Lord of Hosts, The God of Israel: behold, I will feed them, even this people, with Wormwood, and give them water of gall to drink.
9.16 And I will scatter them also among the heathen, whom neither they nor their fathers have known: and I will send a Sword after them till I have consumed them.
9.25 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will punish all them which are circumcised with the uncircumcised... and all the house of Israel are uncircumcised in the heart.

10.14 Every man is brutish in his knowledge: every founder is confounded by the graven image: for his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath in them.
10.15 They are vanity, and the work of errors: in the time of their visitation they shall perish.
10.16 The portion of Jacob is not like them: for He is the former of all things; and Israel is the Rod of His Inheritance: the Lord of Hosts is His Name.
10.19 Woe is me for my hurt! My wound is grievous: But I said, Truly this is a grief, and I must bear it.
10.20 My Tabernacle is spoiled, and all my cords are broken: my children are gone forth of me, and they are not: there is none to stretch forth my Tent any more, and to set up my curtains.
10.21 For the pastors are become brutish, and have not sought the Lord: Therefore they shall not prosper, and all their flocks shall be scattered.
10.22 Behold the noise of the brute is come, and a great commotion out of the north country, to make the cities of Judah desolate, and a den of dragons.

11.9 And the Lord said unto me, A conspiracy is found among the men of Judah, and among the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
11.10 They are turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers, which refused to hear my words; and they went after other gods to serve them: the House of Israel and the House of Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers.
11.11 Therefore, thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them.

page 168

11.16 The Lord called Thy Name, a Green Olive Tree, fair, and of goodly fruit: with the noise of a great tumult He hath kindled fire upon it, and the branches of it are broken.
11.17 For the Lord of hosts, that planted thee, hath pronounced evil against thee, for the evil of the House of Israel and of the House of Judah, which they have done against themselves to provoke me to anger in offering incense unto Ba'al.
11.18 And the Lord hath given me knowledge of it, and I know it: Then Thou shewedst Me their doings.
11.19 But I was like a lamb or an ox that is brought to the slaughter; and I knew not that they had devised devices against me, saying, Let us destroy The Tree with the fruit thereof, and let us cut Him off from the Land of the Living, that His Name may be no more remembered.
11.20 But, O Lord of Hosts, that judgest righteously, that triest the reins and the heart, let me see thy vengeance on them: for unto thee have I revealed my cause.

12.1 Righteous art thou, O Lord, when I plead with thee: yetlet me talk with thee of thy judgments: Wherefore doth the way of the Wicked Prosper? Wherefore are all they happy that deal very Treacherously?
12.2 Thou hast planted them, yea, they have taken root: they grow, yea, they bring forth fruit: thou art near in their mouth, and far from their reins.
12.4 How long shall the land mourn, and the herbs of every field wither, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein? The beasts are consumed and the birds; because they said, He shall not see our last end.
12.7 I have forsaken mine house, I have left mine heritage; I have given the dearly beloved of my soul into the hand of her enemies.
12.8 Mine heritage is unto me as a lion in the forest; it crieth out against me: therefore have I hated it.
12.9 Mine heritage is unto me as a speckled bird, the birds round about are against her; come ye, assemble all the beasts of the field, come to devour.
12.10 Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness.
12.13 They have sown wheat, but shall reap thorns: They have put themselves to pain, but shall not profit: and They shall be shamed of your revenues because of the fierce anger of the Lord.
12.14 Thus saith the Lord against all mine evil neighbors, that touch the inheritance which I have caused my people Israel to inherit; behold, I will pluck them out of their land, and pluck out the house of Judah from among them.

page 169

12.15 And it shall come to pass, after that I have plucked them out I will return, and have compassion on them, and will bring them again, every man to his heritage, and every man to his land.
12.16 And it shall come to pass, if they will diligently learn the ways of my people, to swear by my name, the Lord liveth; as they taught my people to swear by Ba'al; then shall they be built in the midst of my people.
12.17 But if they [my evil neighbors] will not obey, I will utterly pluck up and destroy that nation, saith the Lord.

13.7 Then I went to Euphrates, and digged, and took the girdle from the place where I had hid it: and, behold, the girdle was marred, it was profitable for nothing.
13.9 Thus saith the Lord, after this manner will I mar the pride of Judah and the great pride of Jerusalem.
13.10 This evil people, which refuse to hear my words, which walk in the imagination of their heart, and walk after other gods, to serve them, and to worship them, shall even be as this girdle, which is good for nothing.
13.11 For as the girdle cleaveth to the loins of a man, so have I caused to cleave unto me the whole house of Israel and the whole house of Judah, saith the Lord; that they might be unto me for a people, and for a name, and for a praise, and for a glory: but they would not hear.
13.12 Therefore thou shalt speak unto them this word: Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, every bottle shall be filled with wine: and they shall say unto thee, Do we not certainly know that every bottle shall be filled with wine?
13.13 Then shalt thou say unto them, Thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will fill all the inhabitants of this land, even the kings that sit upon David's throne, and the priests, and the prophets, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem, with drunkenness.
13.14 And I will dash them one against another, even the fathers and the sons together, saith the Lord: I will not pity, nor spare, nor have mercy, but destroy them...and while ye look for light, he turn it into the shadow of death, and make it gross darkness.
13.17 But if ye will not hear it, my soul shall weep in secret places for your pride; and mine eye shall weep sore, and run down with tears, because the Lord's flock is carried away captive.
13.20 Lift up your eyes, and behold them that come from the north: where is the flock that was given thee, thy beautiful flock?

page 170

13.21 What wilt thou say when He shall punish thee? For thou hast taught them to be captains, and as chief over thee: shall not sorrows take thee, as a woman in Travail?
13.23 Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? Then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil.
13.26 Therefore will I discover thy skirts upon thy face, that thy shame may appear.

15.1 Then said the Lord unto me, Though Moses and Samuel stood before me, yet my mind could not be toward this people: cast them out of my sight, and let them go forth.
15.2 And it shall come to pass, if they say unto thee, whither shall we go forth? Then thou shalt tell them, Thus saith the Lord, such as are for death, to death; and such as are for the sword, to the sword; and such as are for the famine, to the famine; and such as are for the captivity, to the captivity... and I will cause them to be removed into all kingdoms of the earth.
15.9 She that hath borne seven languisheth: she hath given up the ghost.
15.12 Shall iron break the northern iron and the steel?
15.13 Thy substance and thy treasures will I give spoil without price, and that for all thy sins, even in all thy borders.
15.14 And I will make thee to pass with thine enemies into a land which Thou Knowest Not: for a fire is kindled in mine anger, which shall burn upon you.
15.18 Why is my pain perpetual, and my wound incurable, which refuseth to be healed? Wilt thou altogether unto me as a liar, and as waters that fail?
15.19 Therefore thus saith the Lord, if thou return, then will I bring thee again, and thou shalt stand before me.. and I will deliver thee out of the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem thee out of the hand of the terrible.

16.14 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that it shall no more be said, The Lord liveth, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;
16.15 But, the Lord liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers.
16.16 Behold, I will send for many fishers, saith the Lord, and they shall fish them; and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.
16.17 For mine eyes are upon all their ways: they are not hid from my face, neither is their iniquity hid from mine eyes.
16.18 And first I will recompense their iniquity and their sin Double: because they have defiled my land, they have filled mine inheritance with the carcasses of their detestable and abominable things.

page 171

16.9 For thus saith the Lord of Hosts, the God of Israel: behold, I will cause to cease out of this place in your eyes, and in your days, the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride.
16.10 And it shall come to pass, when thou shalt shew this people all these words, and they shall say unto thee, Wherefore hath the Lord pronounced all this great evil against us? Or what is our iniquity? Or what is our sin that we have committed against the Lord our God?
16.11 Then shalt thou say unto them, Because your fathers have forsaken me, saith the Lord, and have walked after other gods, and have served them, and have worshipped them, and have forsaken me, and have not kept my law;
16.12 And ye have done worse than your fathers; for, behold, ye walk everyone after the imagination of his evil heart, that they may not hearken unto me:
16.13 Therefore will I cast you out of this land into a land that ye know not, neither ye nor your fathers; and there shall ye serve other gods day and night; where I will not shew you favor.

17.18 Let them be confounded that persecute me, but let not me be confounded. Let them be dismayed, but let not me be dismayed: bring upon them the day of evil, and destroy them with double destruction.

18.6 O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the Lord? Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.
18.7 At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy it.
18.8 If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them.
18.15 Because my people hath forgotten me, they have burned incense to vanity, and they have caused them to stumble in their ways from the ancient paths, to walk in paths, in a way not cast up;
18.16 To make their land desolate, and a perpetual hissing; everyone that passeth thereby shall be astonished, and wag his head.
18.17 I will scatter them as with an east wind before the enemy; I will shew them the back, and not the face, in the day of their calamity.
18.19 Give heed to me, O Lord, and hearken to the voice of them that contend with me.
18.20 Shall evil be recompensed for good? for they have digged a pit for my soul. Remember that I stood before thee to speak good for them, and to turn away thy wrath from them.

19.6 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that this place shall no more be called Tophet, nor The Valley of the son of Hinnom, but the Valley of Slaughter.

page 172

19.7 And I will make void the counsel of Judah and Jerusalem in this place;
19.8 And I will make this city desolate, and an hissing; every one that passeth thereby shall be astonished and hiss because of all the plagues thereof.

22.29 O earth, earth, hear the word of the Lord.
22.30 Thus saith the Lord, write ye this man childless, a man that shall not prosper in his days: for no man of his seed shall prosper, sitting upon the throne of David, and ruling any more in Judah. (refers to Coniah the son of Jehoiakim, King of Judah).

23.1 Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the Lord.
23.2 Therefore thus saith the Lord God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people; ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith the Lord.
23.3 And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase.
23.4 And I will set up shepherds over them which shall feed them: and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking, saith the Lord.
23.5 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a [servant] King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.
23.6 In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: And this is His Name whereby he shall be called,The Lord Our Righteousness.
23.12 Wherefore their ways shall be unto them as slippery ways in the darkness: They shall be driven on, and fall therein: for I will bring evil upon them, even the year of their visitation, saith the Lord.
23.14 I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they are all of them unto me as Sodom and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.
23.15 Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts concerning the prophets: Behold I will feed them with Wormwood, and make them drink the water of gall: for from the prophets of Jerusalem is profaneness gone forth into the land.

page 173

23.19 Behold, a whirlwind of the Lord is gone forth in fury, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked.
23.20 The anger of the Lord shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart: In the Latter Days ye shall consider it perfectly.
23.24 Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see Him? saith the Lord. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Lord.
23.28 The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the Lord.
23.30 Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the Lord, that steal my words every one from his neighbor.
23.31 Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the Lord, that use their tongues and say, he saith.
23.33 And when this people, or the prophet, or a priest, shall ask thee, saying, What is the burden of the Lord? Thou shalt then say unto them, What burden? I will even forsake you, saith the Lord.

24.1 The Lord shewed me, and, behold, two baskets of figs were set before the temple of the Lord...
24.2 One basket had very good figs, even like the figs that are first ripe: and the other basket had very naughty figs, which could not be eaten, they were so bad.
24.5 Thus saith the Lord, the God of Israel, like these good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are carried away captive of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans for their good.
24.6 For I will set mine eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them again to this land: and I will build them, and not pull them down; and I will plant them, and not pluck them up.
24.7 And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am the Lord: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart.
24.8 And as the evil figs, which cannot be eaten, they are so evil; surely thus saith the Lord, so will I give Zedekiah the King of Judah, and his princes, and their residue of Jerusalem, that remain in this land, and them that dwell in Egypt:
24.9 And I will deliver them to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth for their hurt, to be a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a curse, in all places whither I shall drive them.

page 174

25.8 Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts; because ye have not heard my words,
25.9 Behold, I will send and take all the families of the north, saith the Lord, and Nebuchadnezzar the King of Babylon, my servant, and will bring them against this land...
25.11 And this whole land shall be a desolation, and an astonishment; and these nations shall serve the king of Babylon Seventy Years.
25.12 And it shall come to pass, when Seventy Years are accomplished, that I will punish the King of Babylon, and that nation, saith the Lord, for their iniquity, and the land of the Chaldeans, and will make it perpetual desolations.
25.30 Therefore prophesy thou against them all these words, and say unto them, The Lord shall roar from on high, and utter his voice from his holy habitation; he shall mightily roar upon his habitation; he shall give a shout as they that tread the grapes, against all the inhabitants of the earth.
25.31 A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth; for the Lord hath a controversy with the nations, He will plead with all flesh; He will give them that are wicked to the sword, saith the Lord.
25.32 Thus saith the Lord of hosts, behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth.
25.33 And the slain of the Lord shall be at that day from one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth: they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried: they shall be dung upon the ground.
25.34 Howl, ye shepherds, and cry; and wallow yourselves in the ashes, ye principal of the flock: for the days of your slaughter and of your dispersions are accomplished; and ye shall fall like a pleasant vessel.
25.35 And the shepherds shall have no way to flee, nor the principal of the flock to escape.

26.2 Thus saith the Lord; stand in the court of the Lord's house, and speak unto all the cities of Judah..
26.4 And thous shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord; if ye will not hearken to me, to walk in my law, which I have set before you,

page 175

26.5 To hearken to the words of my servants the prophets, whom I sent you both rising up early, and sending them, but ye have not hearkened;
26.5 Then will I make this house like Shiloh, and will make this city a curse to all the nations of the earth.

29.10 For thus saith the Lord, that after seventy years be accomplished at Babylon I will visit you, and perform my good word toward you, in causing you to return to this place.
29.16 Know that thus saith the Lord of the king that sitteth upon the throne of David, and of all the people that dwelleth in this city, and of your brethren that are not gone forth with you into captivity;
29.17 Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Behold, I will send upon them the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, and will make them like vile figs, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil.
29.18 And I will persecute them with the sword, with the famine, and with the pestilence, and will deliver them to be removed to all the kingdoms of the earth, to be a curse, and an astonishment, and an hissing, and a reproach among all the nations whither I have driven them.

30.2 Write thee all the words that I have spoken unto thee in a book.
30.3 For, lo, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith the Lord:
30.5 We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace.
30.6 Ask ye now, and see whether a man doth travail with child? Wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness?
30.7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it; it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.
30.8 For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of Him:
30.9 But they shall serve the Lord their God andDavid their King, whom I will raise up unto them.
30.10 Therefore fear thou not, O my servant Jacob, saith the Lord; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save thee from afar, and thy seed from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid.

page 176

30.11 For I am with thee, saith the Lord, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet will I not make a full end of thee: But I will correct thee in measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished.
30.24 The fierce anger of the Lord shall not return, until He have done it, and until He have performed the intents of His Heart: in the Latter days ye shall consider it.

31.8 Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth.
31.10 Hear the word of the Lord, O yea nations, and declare it in the isles far off, and say, he that scattered Israel will gather Him, and keep Him, as a shepherd doth his flock.
31.21 Set thee up waymarks, make thee high heaps: set thine heart toward the highway, even the way which thou wentest: turn again, O Virgin of Israel, turn again to these thy cities.
31.22 How long wilt thou go about, O thou backsliding daughter? For the Lord hath created a new thing in the earth, A woman shall compass a man.
31.27 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah with the seed of man and with the seed of beast.
31.31 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah.
31.33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts: and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

33.34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, know the Lord: for they shall all know me, from the least of them, unto the greatest of them, saith the Lord: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
33.11 The voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the voice of them that shall say, Praise the Lord of Hosts: for the Lord is good; for his Mercy endureth forever: and of them that shall bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of the Lord. For I will cause to return the captivity of the land, as at the first, saith the Lord.

33.14 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will perform that good thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel and to the house of Judah.

page 177

33.15 In those days, and at that time, will Icause the Branch of Righteousness to grow up unto David; and He shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land.
33.16 In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: And this is the name wherewith She shall be called, The Lord our Righteousness. 


1.3 The word of the Lord came expressly unto Ezekeil the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the river Chebar; and the hand of the Lord was there upon him.
1.4 And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the color of amber, out of the midst of the fire.
1.5 Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: They had the likeness of a man.
1.6 And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings.
1.7 And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf's foot: and they sparkled like the color of burnished brass.
1.8 And they had the hands of a man under their wings on their four sides; and they four had their faces and their wings.
1.9 Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward.
1.10 As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle.
1.12 And they went every one straight forward: whither the spirit was to go, they went; and they turned not when they went.
1.13 As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, and like the appearance of lamps: it went up and down among the living creatures; and the fire was bright and out of the fire went forth lightning.
1.15 Now as I beheld the living creatures, behold one wheel upon the earth by the living creatures, with his four faces.
1.16 The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the color of a beryl: and they four had one likeness: and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel.
1.17 When they went, they went upon their four sides: and they turned not when they went.
1.18 As for their rings, they were so high that they were dreadful; and their rings were full of eyes round about them four.
1.20 Whithersoever the spirit was to go, they went, thither was their spirit to go; and the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.

page 178

1.22 And the likeness of the firmament upon the heads of the living creature was as the color of the terrible crystal, stretched forth over their heads above.
1.25 And there was a voice from the firmament that was over their heads, when they stood, and had let down their wings.
1.26 And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it.

3.3 And He said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee. Then did I eat it; andit was in my mouth as honey for sweetness.
3.4 And He said unto me, Son of man, go, get thee unto the house of Israel, and speak with my words unto them.
3.5 For thou art not sent to a people of a strange speech and of an hard language, but to the house of Israel;
3.6 Not to many people of a strange speech and of an hard language, whose words thou canst not understand. Surely, had I sent thee to them, they would have hearkened unto thee.
3.7 But the house of Israel will not hearken unto thee; for they will not hearken unto me: for all the house of Israel are impudent and hardhearted.
3.24 Then the spirit entered into me, and set me upon my feet, and spake with me, and said unto me, Go, shut thyself within thine house.

11.17 Therefore, say, thus saith the Lord God; I will even gather you from the people, and assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel.
11.18 And they shall come thither, and they shall take away all the detestable things thereof and all the abominations thereof from thence.
11.19 And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart of our their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh.

14.9 And if the prophet be deceived when he hath spoken a thing, I the Lord have deceived that prophet, and I will stretch out my hand upon him, and will destroy him from the midst of my people Israel.
14.21 For thus saith the Lord God: How much more when I send my four sore judgments upon Jerusalem, the sword, and the famine, and the noisesome beast, and the pestilence, to cut off from it man and beast?

15.2 Son of man, What is the Vine Tree more than any tree, or than a branch which is among the trees of the forest?
15.3 Shall wood be taken thereof to do any work? Or will men take a pin of it to hang any vessel thereon?
15.4 Behold, it is cast into the fire for fuel; the fire devoureth both the ends of it, and the midst of it is burned. Is it meet for any work?

page 179

15.5 Behold, when it was whole, it was meet for no work: how much less shall it be meet yet for any work, when the fire hath devoured it and it is burned?
15.6 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; as the Vine Tree among the trees of the forest, which I have given to the fire for fuel, so will I give the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
15.7 And I will set my face against them; they shall go out from one fire, and another fire shall devour them; and ye shall know that I am the Lord, when I set my face against them.

19.10 Thy mother is like a vine in thy blood, painted by the waters: she was fruitful and full of branches by reason of many waters.
19.11 And she had strong rods for the scepters of them that bare rule, and her stature was exalted among the thick branches, and she appeared in her height with the multitude of her branches.
19.12 But she was plucked up in fury, she was cast down to the ground, and the east wind dried up her fruit: her strong rods were broken and withered; the fire consumed them.
19.13 And now she is planted in the wilderness, in a dry and thirsty ground.
19.14 And the fire is gone out of a rod of her branches, which hath devoured her fruit, so that she hath no strong rod to be a scepter to rule. This is a lamentation and shall be for a lamentation.

20.33 As I live, saith the Lord God, surely with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out, will I rule over you:
20.35 And I will bring you into the wilderness of the people, and there will I plead with you face to face.
20.36 Like as I pleaded with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so will I plead with you, saith the Lord God.
20.37 And I will cause you to pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant.
20.43 And there shall ye remember your ways, and all your doings, wherein ye have been defiled; and ye shall loath yourselves in your own sight for all your evils that ye have committed.

page 180

21.7 And it shall be, when they say unto thee, Wherefore sighest thou? That thou shalt answer, For the tidings; because it cometh: and every heart shall melt, and all hands shall be feeble, and every spirit shall faint, and all knees shall be weak as water: behold, it cometh, and shall be brought to pass, saith the Lord God.
21.25 And thou, profane wicked prince of Israel, whose day is come, when iniquity shall have an end.
21.26 Thus saith the Lord God: remove the diadem, and take off the crown: This shall not be the same: exalt Him that is low, and abase him that is high.
21.27 I will overturn, overturn, overturn it: and it shall be no more, UntilHe come whose Right It Is: and I will give it Him.

22.22 As silver is melted in the midst of the furnace, so shall ye be melted in the midst thereof; and ye shall know that I the Lord have poured out my fury on you.

33.11 Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and Live: Turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?

34.8 As I live, saith the Lord God, surely because my flock became a prey, and my flock became meat to every beast of the field, because there was no shepherd, neither did my shepherds search for my flock, but the shepherds fed themselves, and fed not my flock:
34.9 Therefore, O ye shepherds, hear the word of the Lord;
34.10 Thus saith the Lord God; Behold I am against the shepherds; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves anymore; for I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them.
34.11 For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I even I will both search my sheep, and seek them out.
34.12 As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that He is among his sheep THAT ARE SCATTERED; so will Iseek out my sheep, andwill deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.
34.13 And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the country.
34.14 I will feed them in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains of Israel shall their fold be: there shall they lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel.
34.15 I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, saith the Lord God.
34.16 I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick: but I will destroy the fat and the strong; I will feed them with judgment.

page 181

34.17 And as for you, O my flock, thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I judge between cattle and cattle, between rams and the he goats.
34.18 Seemeth it a small thing unto you to have eaten up the good pasture, but ye must tread down with your feet the residue of your pastures? And to have drunk of the deep waters, but ye must foul the residue with your feet?
34.22 Therefore will I save my flock, and they shall no more be a prey; and I will judge between cattle and cattle.
34.23 And I will set up one shepherd over them, and He shall feed them, even my servant David; He shall feed them, and He shall be their shepherd.
34.24 And I the Lord will be their God, and my Servant David a prince among them; I the Lord have spoken it.
34.25 And I will make with them a covenant of peace, and will cause the evil beasts to cease out of the land: and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness and sleep in the woods.
34.26 And I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in His Season; there shall be showers of blessing.

36.24 For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.
36.25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
36.26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
36.27 And I will put my spirit within you and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
36.28 And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.
36.31 Then shall ye remember your own evil ways, and your doings that were not good, and shall loath yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations.

page 182

36.32 Not for your sakes do I this, saith the Lord god, be it known unto you: be ashamed and confounded for your own ways, O house of Israel.
36.36 Then the heathen that are left round about you shall know that I the Lord build the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate: I the Lord have spoken it, and I will do it.

37.21 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:
37.22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one King shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations (Joseph/Ephraim and Judah) neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:
37.24 And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them...and my servant David shall be their prince forever.
37.26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: And I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them forevermore.
37.27 My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God and they shall be my people.
37.28 And the heathen shall know that I the Lord do sanctify Israel, when My Sanctuary shall be in the midst of them forevermore.

38.2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against Him.
38.3 And say, Thus saith the Lord Gog; Behold I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:
38.4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses, and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:
38.5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
38.9 Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many peoples with thee.

page 183

38.14 Therefore, Son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord God; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it?
38.15 And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army:
38.16 And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the Latter Days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes.
38.18 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the Land of Israel, saith the Lord God, that my fury shall come up in my face.
38.19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;
38.20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, every wall shall fall to the ground.
38.22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.
38.23 Thus will I Magnify Myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the Lord.

Appendix C
A Small Commentary Concerning The Dead Sea Scrolls
This Manuscript


What you have just read is the manuscript I sent out to the Ministry by cover of letters which follow in this book. Each cover letter added to the book. And I knew that this book would be ignored.

But you can read as well as I. And they should have been able to read as well as you. They should have been able to communicate, what you have just read, to you as well as I. This is Their Vanity and Their Sin. For before me they had not this sin. For they did not have this book weighing against them.

But I have set you up as My Witness, that they should have known these things and should have communicated it to you properly, as easily as I have done it. Therefore, shall their Wisdom perish before your eyes.

The Proper way to communicate the Word of God is to quote Him as He has expressed Himself through all the prophets: you do not make up new things as you go along-not unless you are a prophet of God and have the authority to do so, as He has defined it: either being the Anointed One or His prophet, which is done by being fulfilled in prophesy.

Now all of these prophets whom I have quoted have been Confirmed as prophets, because their prophesies have been fulfilled. And They confirm Me. For I have said nothing, and done nothing, which has not previously been set in their Word. Thus, I have said I am not a prophet. I have said nothing new but called the things God Told You into Remembrance, knowing full well that the Ministry would not receive it: because they have set themselves up as the Authority of God. And they have put themselves above Their God. They may have offended Him, even, by ignoring the things that I have called into Remembrance. Certainly, I am offended in them, though it is God's Word, not mine, and I would anticipate that if I am offended He might be also. And if they think He might be offended, they ought to examine what they have done to me. They should have answered me, and if they thought me wrong, corrected me. For that is their responsibility to the Word of God: To correct and teach the Truth. And for one who takes correction there can be no error; only learning. I wonder who among the pastors can stand being corrected either by me or by you..or by God. I wonder how they perceive Truth. Eat this little book and you will soon ascertain this fact. But do not judge them; for they have been judged already. They have judged themselves before your very eyes. And this book is become the market in which they have been weighed.

page 185

If they admit any errors in this, do not chastise them for they have already been chastised; nor chastise me for my errors. But let us all kneel down in worship of God that the Word of God is Mightier than We.

My message was quite clear. My intent with them was to get them to take a stronger message to Judah concerning the evidence of Jesus Christ, to raise the Tabernacle of Moses, which is My Evidence that all things before it have been fulfilled, and to ask Judah whether he desires the Sign of the Virgin to come (again). I desire that Judah admit His Mistake so that we can get on to bigger and more majestic things, about the building of the Kingdom.

When I wrote these things I had not known what was written in the Dead Sea Scrolls. That is evident in my letters, for had I known them I would have written them in my book. In the latter letters you can see that I discovered a terrible error that I had made. Because my book was ignored with its letters, I had assumed that the Ministry really had no idea that the things of my book were in the Bible; and that they had written my book off as one man's interpretation of the Bible against another's. For they believe in their hearts that the Bible is open to interpretation, making the fulfillment of the prophets an impossible dream. And they have forgotten that the very basis of their faith is based upon those prophets: that Jesus Christ fulfilled prophesy and by fulfilling it is the legitimate heir to God's Kingdom, as its King. For I acknowledge Him as My King, that He fulfilled the prophesy of My King.

(I was unknowingly Being made a fool) I did not realize that They should have already known what was in the Dead Sea Scrolls; and knowing these things, they should have answered me back by saying, "What's New? and that "What you have written has been written long before you". Or, at the least, they should have answered me in their own best way that they did not know what to make of my book, so that I could have had an opportunity to defend it to them. But they gave me no opportunity to either go into the sheep gate nor go out with these things in hand.. And if My God has taken any pleasure in the things I have written, and the way I did them, then this is for a lesson unto them.

They would be wise to ask whether My God would take some pleasure in me. Not because I have done anything remarkable, from my point of view, but because I have attempted, in my best way, to remain faithful and true in His Word and defend Him in that way. And in attempting this I did not know that the Ministry would so completely ignore my work, causing me to look like a fool to Myself and them to look like fools to me. But it is fortunate that it is them, rather than others before them, who are confronted by this book. For one hundred years ago I could not have done this and lived. I would have feared death all the time of writing it. And I would have feared persecution, wouldn't I? But these days I can do these freely without persecution, can't I? .... Can't I?

page 186

I have tried to help you get to know Him a little better, taking Him at His Word. And I have openly asked that if I have made any errors that I would be pleased if you would show them to me. For there are errors in the pages of my book. Some I put there on purpose. Not to misguide you, but to ask you to point them out. For I wanted to know how well you read the Word of God. Or how well one knows it. So these are my errors in quoting the Word of God. And you should make note of them. And you should ask whether I erred.

Dead Sea Scrolls, Commentary on Habakkuk:

Behold, the nations and see, marvel and be astonished; for I accomplish a deed in your days but you will not believe it when told (i.5).

Interpreted, this concerns those who were unfaithful together with the Liar, in that they did not listen to the word received by the Teacher of Righteousness from the mouth of God. And it concerns the unfaithful of the New Covenant in that they have not believed in the Covenant of God and have profaned His Holy Name. And likewise, this saying is to be interpreted as concerning those who will be unfaithful at the end of days. They, the men of violence and the breakers of the Covenant, will not believe when they hear all that is to happen to the final generation from the Priest, in whose heart God set understanding, that He might interpret all the words of His Servants the Prophets, through whom He foretold all that would happen to His people and His Land.

Behold, his soul is puffed up and is not upright (ii.4a): 

Interpreted, this means that the wicked shall double their guilt upon themselves and it shall not be forgiven when they are judged. 

Woe to him who amasses that which is not his! How long will he load himself up with pledges? (ii.5-6)

Interpreted, this concerns the Wicked Priest who was called by the name of truth when he first arose. But when he ruled over Israel his heart became proud, and he forsook God and betrayed the precepts for the sake of riches. He robbed and amassed the riches of the men of violence who rebelled against God, and he took the wealth of the peoples, heaping sinful iniquity upon himself. And he lived in the ways of abominations amidst every unclean defilement.

page 187

Woe to him who gets evil profit for his house; who perches his nest high to be safe from the hand of evil! You have devised shame to your house; by cutting off many peoples you have forfeited you own soul. For the stone cries out from the wall and the beam from the woodwork replies (ii.9-11).

Interpreted, this concerns the priest who... that its stones might be laid in oppression and the beam of its woodwork in robbery. And as for that which He said, By cutting off many peoples you have forfeited your own soul, interpreted this concerns the condemned House whose judgment God will pronounce in the midst of many peoples. He will bring him thence for judgment and will declare him guilty in the midst of them, and will chastise him with fire and brimstone.

Woe to him who says to wood, awake, and to dumb stone, arise! Can such a thing give guidance? Behold, it is covered with gold and silver but there is no spirit within it. But the Lord is in His Holy temple: let all the earth be silent before Him!

Interpreted, this concerns all the nations which serve stone and wood. But on the Day of Judgment, God will destroy from the earth all idolatrous and wicked men.

And concerning His Words to David, And I will give you rest from all your enemies (2 Sam.vii.11) This means that He will give them rest from all the children of Satan who cause them to stumble so that they may be destroyed by their errors..

The Lord declares to you that He will build you a House (2 Sam.vii, IIC) I will raise up your seed after you (2 Sam. vii.12). I will establish the throne of His Kingdom forever (2 Sam.vii.13) I will be his father and he shall be my son (2 Sam.vii.14).He is the Branch of David who shall arise with the Interpreter of the Law to rule in Zion at the end of time. As it is written, I will raise up the tent of David that is fallen (Amos ix.11). That is to say, the fallen tent of David is He who shall arise to save Israel.

page 188

The Lord spoke to Moses saying:

You have heard the words which this people have spoke to you; all they have said is right. O that their heart were always like this, to fear me and to keep my commandments always, that it might be well with them and their children forever! (Deut.v.28-9). I will raise up for them a Prophet like you from among their brethren. I will put my words into His Mouth and he shall tell them all that I command Him. And I will require a reckoning of whoever will not listen to the words which the Prophet shall speak in my Name (Deut.xviii.19-19).

Concerning...the money of valuation that a man gives as ransom for his life, it shall be half a shekel...He shall give it only once in his life. Twenty gerahs make one shekel according to the shekel of the Temple. (Exod.xxx.12-13)

And concerning that which he said, In this year of Jubilee each of you shall return to his property (Lev xxx.13); and likewise, And this is the manner of release: every creditor shall release that which he has lent to his neighbor. He shall not exact it of his neighbor and his brother, for God's release has been proclaimed. (Deut. xv.2)

And it will be proclaimed at the end of days concerning the captives as he said, To proclaim liberty to the captives (Isa. lxi.1) Its interpretation is that He will assign them to the Sons of Heaven and to the inheritance of Melkizedeck; for He will cast their lot amid the portions of Melkizedek, who will return them there and will proclaim to them liberty, forgiving them the wrongdoings of all their iniquities.

page 189

And this thing will occur in the first week of the Jubilee that follows the nine Jubilees. And the Day of Atonement is the end of the tenth Jubilee, when all the Sons of Light and the men of the lot of Melkizedek will be atoned for. And a statute concerns them to provide them with their rewards. For this is the moment of the Year of Grace for Melkizedek. And He will, by his strength, judge the Holy Ones of God, executing judgment as it is written concerning Him in the Songs of David, who said, Elohim has taken his place in the divine council; in the midst of the gods He holds judgment (Psalms lxxxii.1). And it was concerning Him that He said, Let the assembly of the peoples return to the height above them; El (God) will judge the peoples (Psalms vii. 7-8). As for that which he said, How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? Selah (Psalms lxxxi;i.2) its interpretation concerns Satan and the spirits of his lot who rebelled by turning away from the precepts of God to... AndMelkizedek will avenge the vengeance of the judgments of God...and He will drag them from the hand of Satan and from the hand of all the spirits of his lot. And all the gods of Justice will come to his aid to attend to the destruction of Satan. And the height is ...all the sons of God...this... This is the day of Peace/Salvation concerning which God spoke through Isaiah the prophet, who said, How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of the messenger who proclaims peace, who brings good news, who proclaims salvation, who sayst to Zion: Your Elohim reigns (Isa.lii.7) Its interpretation: the mountains are the prophets... and the messenger is The Anointed One of the Spirit, concerning whom Daniel said, until an Anointed One, a prince (Dan.ix.25)...And He who brings good news, who proclaims salvation: it is concerning Him that it is written....To comfort all who mourn, to grant to those who mourn in Zion (Isa.lxi.2-3) To comfort those who mourn: Its interpretation, to make them understand all the ages of time...In truth... will turn away from Satan...by judgments of God, as it is written concerning him, who says to Zion: your Elohim reigns. Zion is...those who uphold the covenant, who turn from walking in the way of the people. And your Elohim is Melkizedek, who will save them from the hand of Satan.

Their Horoscope of the Messiah

..of his hand: two...a birthmark. And the hair will be red. And there will be lentils on...and small birthmarks on his thigh. And after two years He will know how to distinguish one thing from another. In his youth, he shall be like...like a man who knows nothing until the time when He knows the Three Books. 

And then He will acquire wisdom and learn understanding...vision to come to him on his knees. And with his father and his ancestors... life and old age. Counsel and prudence will be with him, and He will know the secrets of man. His wisdom will reach all the peoples, and He will know the secrets of all the living. And all their designs against Him will come to nothing, and his rule over all the living will be great. His designs will succeed for He is the Elect of God. His birth and the breath of his spirit...and his designs shall be forever...

page 190

And the Dead Sea Scrolls quoted this thing of Moses:

For I say that they will abandon me, and will choose the abominations of the nations, their horrors and their idols. They will serve false gods which shall be for them a snare and a pitfall. They will sin against the Holy Days and against the Sabbath and the Covenant, and against the Commandments which I command you to keep this day.

Therefore I will smite them with a mighty blow in the midst of the land which they cross the Jordan to possess. And when all the curses come upon them and catch up with them to destroy them and blot them out, then shall they know that the truth has been fulfilled with regard to them.

These are some of the thoughts in the Dead Sea Scrolls. If you read them, even those waiting to be published, you will find a considerable continuity in the understanding of the prophesied scattering and restoration of Israel in the latter days, which is a time when God will take out His Wrath against all the nations of the earth. They understood the intent and purpose of God's prophesy and recognized that in later times there would be a need for interpreting, or applying those things, to the Latter Days. They understood that the Proof of God's Word would be established in Those Days and would strike at the Wisdom of those who actually set themselves above God, who make His Word into something He had not written. They understood the need for consistency in The Word of God: something modern Christian Shepherds still await in understanding. And they recognized the dangers of trying to manipulate the Word of God and spent a great deal of time warning against those Liars who do so. And they note that those liars believe that they are lying for God. A liar is a liar in any book and for any reason. What is the chaff to the wheat?

I have not set myself out to expose liars. Nor do I intend to cause you to look at your pastors, accusing them all of lying. But they will be known for their works. And they will be weighed against this book whether they like it or not. For it is not an interpretation. And you can show them this as well as God.

page 191

You will find that most pastors have sincerely believed that all these things of which I have included in my manuscript, except the Tabernacle and the Two Anointed Ones, will be fulfilled by God. But they tend to go to great lengths modifying the way He will do it or the time in which He will do it. Whereas they will wave Revelation, speaking of its truth, and at the same time tell you to look forward to being caught up to Heaven when the Anointed of God comes and be removed from the works of the Tribulation Age. But now, knowing these things, that Revelation has Blessed those Who participate in the First Resurrection, you can go to your Pastor and ask Him whether He will be entitled to a Blessing if He is not willing to participate with The Word, here on earth, when He Comes. For The Word of God is He Who sets the Kingdom. He has a mighty army, even 144,000 Jews, who Testify of Jesus, and they are the Ones who throw the Liar into the pit. Blessed are They who participate in the First Resurrection. Don't allow anyone to lure you into a false comfort of Grace and Salvation, being in that generation, without earning it. For Revelation contemplates that He, The Word, is desirous of Help in that specific generation of The First Resurrection.

If this book is not known on earth, it is known in Heaven. For the Word of God is in it and it is in the Word of God. Because it does not speak of Itself.

Take This Word to your pastor. And don't let him tell you that these things do not apply to you but apply to someone else far into the future, or far into the past. For He is not God and he cannot know either the time or the place for the fulfillment of these things. Therefore, be aware of the desolate, and sympathize for them, for it may be that God has chosen you.
