11 Tremble, O) ye that are at case; be ye disquieted, 0 ye
Mourn ye for the pleasant field, for the fruitful vine.
shall come up;
Yea, over all the joyous houses, over the exulting city, 14 For the palace is deserted, the populous city is left deso
late; Ophel and the watch-tower shall for a long time be a
A joy of wild asses, a pasture for the flocks:
And the wilderness become a fruitful field;
And the fruitful field be esteemed a forest : 16 And judgment shall dwell in the wilderness;
And in the fruitful field shall reside righteousness. 17 And the work of righteousness shall be peace;
And the effect of righteousness perpetual quiet and secui
And in habitations secure,
And in resting places undisturbed. 19 But the hail shall fall, and the forest be brought down;
And the city shall be laid level with the plain.
CHAP. 1 Wo unto thee, thou spoiler, who hast not been spoiled
O JEHOVAH, have mercy on us; we have trusted in
3. From thy terrible voice the peoples fled;
and seize it.
5 JEHOVAH is exalted; yea, he dwelleth on high:
He hath filled Sion with judgment and justice.
7 Behold the mighty men raise a grievous cry;
The messengers of peace weep bitterly.
Libanus is put to shame, it withereth:
10 Now will I arise, saith JEHOVAH;
Now will I lift myself up on high ; now will I be exalted. 11 Ye shall conceive chaff; ye shall bring forth stubble ;
And my spirit like fire shall consume you. 12 And the peoples shall be burned, as the lime is burned ;
As the thorns are cut up, and consumed in the fire. 13 Hear, 0 ye that are afar off, my doings;
And acknowledge, O ye that are near, my power.
Terror hath seized the hypocrites:
Who among us can abide these continued burnings ?
Who shutteth his eyes against the appearance of evil: 16 His dwelling shall be in the high places;
The strongholds of the rocks shall be his lofty fortress:
They shall see thine own land far extended.
The people of a deep speech, which thou couldst not
hear; And of a stammering tongue, which thou couldst not
Thine eyes shall behold Jerusalem,
And of whose cords none shall be broken.
A place of confluent streams, of broad rivers;
Neither shall any mighty vessel go through.
JEHOVAH is our king: he shall save us.
23 Thy sails are loose; they cannot make them fast:
Then shall a copious spoil be divided ;
Even the lame shall seize the prey. 24 Neither shall the inhabitant say, I am disabled with
sickness: The people, that dwelleth therein, is freed from the
punishment of their iniquity.
CHAP. 1 XXXIV.
DRAW near, 0 ye nations, and hearken;
2 For the wrath of JEHOVAH is kindled against all the
nations; And his anger against all the orders thereof: He hath devoted them; he hath given them up to
slaughter. 3 And their slain shall be cast out;
And from their carcasses their stink shall ascend;
And the mountains shall melt down with their blood. 4 And all the host of heaven shall waste away;
And the heavens shall be rolled up like a scroll:
And as the blighted fruit from the fig-tree.
Behold, on Edom it shall descend;
And on the people justly by me devoted to destruction. 6 The sword of JEHOVAH is glutted with blood;
It is pampered with fat;
And a great slaughter in the land of Edom. . ng And the wild goats shall fall down with them;
And the bullocks, together with the bulls:
And their dust shall be enriched with fat. 8 For it is the day of vengeance to JEHOVAH; The year of recompense to the defenders of the cause of
Sion. 9 And her torrents shall be turned into pitch,
And her dust into sulphur;
And her whole land shall become burning pitch; 10 By night or by day it shall not be extinguished;
For ever shall her smoke ascend :
To everlasting ages no one shall pass through her; 11 But the pelican and the porcupine shall inherit her;
And the owl and the raven shall inhabit there :
And the plummet of emptiness over her scorched plains. . 12 No more shall they boast the renown of the kingdom; And all her princes shall utterly fail.
13 And in her palaces shall spring up thorns ;
The nettle and the bramble, in her fortresses ;
A court for the daughters of the ostrich.
And shall find for herself a place of rest.
Every one of them shall join her mate.
Not one of these shall be missed ;
And his spirit itself hath gathered them.
And his hand hath meted out their portion by the line :
CHAP. 1 The desert, and the waste, shall be glad;
2 Like the rose shall it beautifully flourish;
And the well-watered plain of Jordan shall also rejoice :
The majesty of our God. :
And confirm ye the tottering knees.
Fear ye not; behold your God!
He himself will come, and will deliver you.
And the ears of the deaf shall be opened :
And the tongue of the dumb shall sing :
