  24. LIFT UP YOUR EYES TO THE HEAVENS AND LOOK UPON THE EARTH BENEATH: FOR THE HEAVENS SHALL VANISH AWAY LIKE SMOKE AND THE EARTH SHALL WAX OLD AS A GARMENT AND THEY THAT LIVE THEREIN SHALL DIE IN LIKE MANNER: BUT MY SALVATION SHALL BE FOREVER AND MY RIGHTEOUSNESS SHALL NOT BE ABOLISHED.
  25. LISTEN TO ME, YOU THAT KNOW RIGHTEOUSNESS, THE PEOPLE IN WHOSE HEART IS MY LAW; FEAR YOU NOT THE REPROACH OF MEN, NEITHER BE YOU AFRAID OF THEIR REVILINGS.
  26. HOW BEAUTIFUL UPON THE MOUNTAINS ARE THE FEET OF HIM THAT BRINGS GOOD TIDINGS OF GOOD, THAT PUBLISHES PEACE; THAT BRINGS GOOD TIDINGS OF GOOD, THAT PUBLISHES SALVATION; THAT SAYS UNTO ZION, YOUR GOD REIGNS!
  27. HE, JESUS, HAS NO FORM, NOR COMELINESS; AND WHEN WE SHALL SEE HIM, THERE IS NO BEAUTY THAT WE SHOULD DESIRE HIM.
  28. HE, JESUS, 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.
  29. SURELY HE, JESUS, HAS BORNE OUR GRIEFS AND CARRIED OUR SORROWS: YET WE DID ESTEEM HIM STRICKEN , SMITTEN OF GOD, AND AFFLICTED.
  30. BUT HE, JESUS, 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.
  31. ALL WE LIKE SHEEP HAVE GONE ASTRAY; WE HAVE TURNED EVERYONE TO HIS OWN WAY; AND THE LORD HAS LAID UPON HIM THE INIQUITY OF US ALL.
  32. HE, JESUS, WAS AFFLICTED AND OPPRESSED, 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 OPENED NOT HIS MOUTH.
  33. HE, JESUS, WAS TAKEN FROM PRISON AND FROM JUDGMENT: AND WHO SHALL DECLARE HIS GENERATION? FOR HE WAS CUT OFF OUT OF THE LAND OF THE LIVING:FOR THE TRANSGRESSION OF MY PEOPLE WAS HE STRICKEN.
  34. AND HE MADE HIS GRAVE WITH THE WICKED AND WITH THE RICH IN HIS DEATH; BECAUSE HE HAD DONE NO VIOLENCE , NEITHER WAS ANY DECEIT IN HIS MOUTH.
  35. YET IT PLEASED THE LORD,(GOD ALMIGHTY, YAH'WEH,) TO BRUISE HIM; HE HAS PUT HIM TO GRIEF: WHEN YOU SHALL 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.
  36. HE, GOD ALMIGHTY, YAH'WEH, SHALL SEE THE TRAVAIL OF HIS, JESUS, SOUL AND SHALL BE SATISFIED: BY HIS KNOWLEDGE SHALL MY RIGHTEOUS SERVANT JUSTIFY MANY; FOR HE SHALL BEAR THEIR INIQUITIES.
  37. THEREFORE WILL I DIVIDE HIM A PORTION WITH THE GREAT AND HE SHALL DIVIDE THE SPOIL WITH THE STRONG; BECAUSE HE, JESUS, HAS 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.
  38. FOR YOUR MAKER IS THINE HUSBAND; THE LORD OF HOSTS IS HIS NAME; AND YOUR REDEEMER, THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL; THE GOD OF THE WHOLE EARTH SHALL HE BE CALLED.
  39. NO WEAPON THAT IS FORMED AGAINST YOU SHALL PROSPER; AND EVERY TONGUE THAT SHALL RISE AGAINT YOU IN JUDGMENT, YOU SHALL CONDEMN. THIS IS THE HERITAGE OF THE SERVANTS OF THE LORD AND THEIR RIGHTEOUSNESS IS OF ME, SAYS THE LORD.
  40. SEEK YOU THE LORD WHILE HE MAY BE FOUND, CALL YOU UPON HIM WHILE HE IS NEAR.
  41. LET THE WICKED FORSAKE HIS WAYS AND THE UNRIGHTEOUS MAN HIS THOUGHTS; AND LET HIM RETURN UNTO THE LORD AND HE WILL HAVE MERCY UPON HIM; AND TO OUR GOD AND HE WILL ABUNDANTLY PARDON.
  42. FOR MY THOUGHTS ARE NOT YOUR THOUGHTS, NEITHER ARE YOUR WAYS, MY WAYS, SAYS THE LORD.
  43. FOR AS THE HEAVENS ARE HIGHER THAN THE EARTH, SO ARE MY WAYS HIGHER THAN YOUR WAYS AND MY THOUGHTS, THAN YOUR THOUGHTS.
  44. SO SHALL MY WORD BE THAT GOES FORTH OUT OF MY MOUTH: IT SHALL NOT RETURN TO ME VOID, BUT IT SHALL ACCOMPLISH THAT WHICH I PLEASE AND IT SHALL PROSPER IN THE THING WHEREUNTO I SENT IT.
  45. ALSO THE SONS OF THE STRANGER, GENTILE, THAT JOIN THEMSELVES TO THE LORD TO SERVE HIM AND TO LOVE THE NAME OF THE LORD, TO BE HIS SERVANTS, EVERYONE THAT KEEPS THE SABBATH FROM POLLUTING IT AND TAKES HOLD OF MY COVENANT.
  46. FOR THE HOUSE OF THE LORD GOD SHALL BE CALLED A HOUSE OF PRAYER FOR ALL PEOPLE,
  47. THE LORD GOD WHICH GATHERS THE OUTCAST OF ISRAEL SAY, YET WILL I GATHE OTHERS,(GENTILES) TO HIM, ISRAEL, BESIDE THOSE THAT ARE GATHERED TO HIM. 
  48. THE RIGHTEOUS PERISHES AND NO MAN LAYS IT TO HEART: AND MERCIFUL MEN ARE TAKEN AWAY, NONE CONSIDERING THAT THE RIGHTEOUS IS TAKEN AWAY FROM THE EVIL TO COME.
  49. THERE IS NO PEACE SAYS MY GOD, TO THE WICKED.
  50. IS NOT THIS THE FAST THAT I HAVE CHOSEN? TO LOOSE THE BANDS OF WICKEDNESS, TO UNDO THE HEAVY BURDENS, AND TO LET THE OPPRESSED GO FREE AND THAT YOU BREAK EVERY YOKE?
  51. IS IT NOT TO DEAL YOUR BREAD TO THE HUNGRY AND THAT YOU BRING THE POOR THAT ARE CAST OUT TO YOUR HOUSE? WHEN YOU SEE THE NAKED, THAT YOU COVER HIM; AND THAT YOU HIDE NOT YOURSELF FROM THINE OWN FLESH?
  52. THEN SHALL YOU CALL AND THE LORD SHALL ANSWER; YOU SHALL CRY AND HE SHALL SAY, HERE AM I.
  53. IF YOU TURN AWAY YOUR FOOT FROM THE SABBATH, FROM DOING YOUR PLEASURE ON MY HOLY DAY; AND CALL THE SABBATH A DELIGHT, THE HOLY OF THE LORD, HONORABLE; AND SHALL HONOR HIM, NOT DOING YOUR OWN WAYS, NOR FINDING YOUR OWN PLEASURE, NOR SPEAKING YOUR OWN WORDS: 
  54. THEN SHALL YOU DELIGHT YOURSELF IN THE LORD; AND I WILL CAUSE YOU TO RIDE UPON THE HIGH PLACES OF THE EARTH AND FEED YOU WITH THE HERITAGE OF JACOB YOUR FATHER: FOR THE MOUTH OF THE LORD HAS SPOKEN IT.
  55. BEHOLD THE LORDS HAND IS NOT SHORTENED, THAT IT CANNOT SAVE; NEITHER HIS EAR HEAVY, THAT IT CANNOT HEAR:
  56. BUT YOUR INIQUITIES HAVE SEPARATED BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR GOD AND YOUR SINS HAVE HIDDEN HIS FACE FROM YOU AND HE WILL NOT HEAR.
  57. FOR OUR TRANSGRESSIONS ARE MULTIPLIED BEFORE US AND OUR SINS TESTIFY AGAINST US; FOR OUR TRANSGRESSIONS ARE WITH US; AND AS FOR OUR INIQUITIES, WE KNOW THEM.
  58. AND HE SAW THAT THERE WAS NO MAN AND WONDERED THAT THERE WAS NO INTERCESSOR: THEREFORE HIS ARM BROUGHT SALVATION TO HIM; AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS IT SUSTAINED HIM.
  59. FOR HE PUT ON RIGHTEOUSNESS AS A BREASTPLATE AND A HELMET OF SALVATION UPON HIS HEAD;
  60. ACCORDING TO THEIR DEEDS, ACCORDINGLY HE WILL REPAY, FURY TO HIS ADVERSARIES, RECOMPENCE TO HIS ENEMIES; TO THE ISLANDS HE WILL REPAY RECOMPENCE.
  61. SO SHALL THEY FEAR 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 HOLY SPIRIT OF THE LORD SHALL LIFT UP A BANNER AGAINST HIM.
  62. BUT YOU SHALL CALL YOUR WALLS, SALVATION AND YOUR GATES, PRAISE.
  63. THE SUN SHALL NO MORE BE YOUR LIGHT BY DAY; NEITHER FOR BRIGHTNESS SHALL THE MOON GIVE LIGHT TO YOU; FOR THE LORD SHALL BE UNTO YOU AN EVERLASTING LIGHT AND YOUR GOD YOUR GLORY.
  64. YOUR SUN SHALL NO MORE GO DOWN; NEITHER SHALL YOUR MOON WITHDRAW ITSELF; FOR THE LORD SHALL BE YOUR EVERLASTING LIGHT AND THE DAYS OF YOUR MOURNING SHALL BE ENDED.
  65. THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME; BECAUSE THE LORD HAS ANOINTED ME TO PREACH GOOD TIDINGS TO THE MEEK; HE HAS SENT ME TO BIND UP THE BROKENHEARTED, TO PROCLAIM LIBERTY TO THE CAPTIVES AND THE OPENING OF THE PRISON TO THOSE THAAT ARE BOUND;
  66. TO PROCLAIM THE ACCEPTABLE DAY OF THE LORD AND THE DAY OF VENEGANCE OF OUR GOD; TO COMFORT ALL THAT MOURN.
  67. AND THE GENTILES SHALL SEE YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS AND ALL THE KINGS YOUR GLORY: AND YOU SHALL BE CALLED BY A NEW NAME, WHICH THE MOUTH OF THE LORD SHALL NAME.
  68. AND THEY SHALLCALL THEM, THE HOLY PEOPLE, THE REDEEMED OF THE LORD: AND YOU SHALL BE CALLED, SOUGHT OUT, A CITY NOT FORSAKEN.
  69. FOR HE SAID, SURELY THEY ARE MY PEOPLE, CHILDREN THT WILL NOT LIE; SO HE WAS THEIR SAVIOR.
  70. DOUBTLESS YOU ARE OUR FATHER, THOUGH ABRAHAM BE IGNORANT OF US AND ISRAEL ACKNOWLEDGE US NOT: YOU O LORD, ARE OUR FATHER, OUR REDEEMER; THY NAME IS FROM EVERLASTING. 
  71. FOR SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE WORLD MEN HAVE NOT HEARD, NOR PERCEIVED BY THE EAR, NEITHER HAS EYE SEEN, O GOD, BESIDE YOU, WHAT HE HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO WAIT FOR HIM.
  72. BUT WE ARE ALL AS AN UNCLEAN THING AND ALL OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS ARE AS FILTHY RAGS; AND WE ALL DO FADE AS A LEAF; AND OUR INIQUITIES , LIKE THE WIND, HAVE TAKEN US AWAY.
  73. BUT NOW, O LORD, YOU ARE OUR FATHER; WE ARE THE CLAY AND YOU OUR POTTER; AND WE ALL ARE THE WORK OF YOUR HAND.
  74. I AM SOUGHT OF THOSE THAT ASKED NOT FOR ME; I AM FOUND OF THOSE THAT SOUGHT ME NOT; I SAID, BEHOLD ME, BEHOLD ME, UNTO A NATION THAT WAS NOT CALLED BY MY NAME.
  75. ****FOR BEHOLD I CREATE NEW HEAVENS AND A NEW EARTH: AND THE FORMER WILL NOT BE REMEMBERED, NOR COME TO MIND.****

  77.  THUS SAYS THE LORD, THE HEAVEN IS MY THRONE: WHERE IS THE HOUSE THAT YOU WILL BUILD UNTO ME? AND WHERE IS THE PLACE OF MY REST?
  78. FOR ALL THOSE THINGS HAS MINE HAND MADE AND ALL THOSE THINGS HAVE BEEN, SAYS THE LORD: BUT TO THIS MAN WILL I LOOK, EVEN TO HIM THAT IS POOR AND OF A CONTRITE SPIRIT AND TREMBLES AT MY WORD.
  79. I ALSO WILL CHOOSE THEIR DELUSIONS AND WILL BRING THEIR FEARS UPON THEM: BECAUSE WHEN I CALLED, NO ONE ANSWERED; WHEN I SPOKE, THEY DID NOT HEAR: BUT THEY DID EVIL BEFORE MINE EYES AND CHOSE THAT IN WHICH I DELIGHTED NOT.
  80. AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS, THAT FROM ONE NEW MOON, TO ANOTHER, AND FROM ONE SABBATH TO ANOTHER, SHALL ALL FLESH COME TO WORSHIP BEFORE ME, SAYS THE LORD.
  81. AND THEY SHALL GO FORTH  AND LOOK UPON THE CARCASSES OF THE MEN THAT HAVE TRANSGRESSED AGAINST ME; FOR THEIR WORM SHALL NOT DIE, NEITHER SHALL THEIR FIRE BE QUENCHED; AND THEY SHALL BE AN ABHORRING TO ALL FLESH.
  82. BEFORE I FORMED YOU , JEREMIAH, IN THE BELLY, I KNEW YOU; AND BEFORE YOU CAME FORTH OUT OF THE WOMB, I SANCTIFIED YOU AND I ORDAINED YOU A PROPHET UNTO THE NATIONS.
  83. THEN SAID I, OH LORD GOD! BEHOLD I CANNOT SPEAK: FOR I AM A CHILD.
  84. BUT THE LORD SAID TO ME, SAY NOT I AM A CHILD; FOR YOU SHALL GO TO ALL THAT I SHALL SEND YOU AND WHATSOEVER I COMMAND YOU, YOU SHALL SPEAK.
  85. BE NOT AFRAID OF THEIR FACES; FOR I AM WITH YOU, TO DELIVER YOU, SAYS THE LORD.
  86. THEN THE LORD PUT FORTH HIS HAND AND TOUCHED MY MOUTH. AND THE LORD SAID TO ME, BEHOLD I HAVE PUT MY WORDS IN YOUR MOUTH.
  87. SEE I HAVE THIS DAY SET YOU OVER THE NATIONS AND OVER THE KINGDOMS, TO ROOT OUT AND TO PULL DOWN AND TO DESTROY AND TO THROW DOWN, TO BUILD AND TO PLANT. 
  88. THEY SAY, IF A MAN PUT AWAY HIS WIFE, AND SHE GO FROM HIM AND BECOME ANOTHER MANS, SHALL HE RETURN UNTO HER AGAIN?
  89. RETURN, YOU BACKSLIDING ISRAEL, (AMERICA-JUNIOR ISRAEL), SAYS THE LORD; AND I WILL NOT CAUSE MINE ANGER TO FALL UPON YOU: FOR I AM MERCIFUL, SAYS THE LORD, AND I WILL NOT KEEP ANGER FOREVER.
  90. TURN O BACKSLIDING CHILDREN SAYS THE LORD; FOR I AM MARRIED TO YOU: AND I WILL TAKE YOU ONE OF A CITY AND TWO OF A FAMILY AND I WILL BRING YOU TO ZION:
  91. AND I WILL GIVE YOU PASTORS ACCORDING TO MINE HEART, WHICH SHALL FEED YOU WITH KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING.
  92. AT THAT TIME THEY SHALL CALL JERUSALEM THE THRONE OF THE LORD; AND ALL THE NATIONS SHALL BE GATHERED UNTO IT, TO THE NAME OF THE LORD, TO JERUSALEM; NEITHER SHALL THEY WALK ANY MORE AFTER THE IMAGINATION OF THEIR EVIL HEART.
  93. THE LORD LIVES IN TRUTH, IN JUDGMENT, AND IN RIGHTEOUSNESS; AND THE NATIONS SHALL BLESS THEMSELVES IN HIM AND IN HIM, SHALL THEY GLORY.
  94. FOR MY PEOPLE IS FOOLISH, THEY HAVE NOT KNOWN ME; THEY ARE STUPID CHILDREN AND THEY HAVE NO UNDERSTANDING: THEY ARE WISE TO DO EVIL, BUT TO DO GOOD, THEY HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE.
  95. HEAR NOW THIS, O FOOLISH PEOPLE AND WITHOUT UNDERSTANDING; WHICH HAVE EYES AND SEE NOT; WHICH HAVE EARS AND HEAR NOT:
  96. FEAR YOU NOT ME? SAYS THE LORD: WILL YOU NOT TREMBLE AT MY PRESENCE, WHICH HAVE PLACED THE SAND FOR THE BOUND OF THE SEA BY A PERPETUAL DECREE, THAT IT CANNOT PASS IT: AND THOUGH THE WAVES THEREOF TOSS THEMSELVES, YET CAN THEY NOT PREVAIL; THOUGH THEY ROAR, YET CAN THEY NOT PASS OVER IT? 
  97. BUT THIS PEOPLE HAS A REVOLTING AND A REBELLIOUS HEART; THEY ARE REVOLTED AND DEPARTED.
  98. NEITHER SAY THEY IN THEIR HEART, LET US NOW FEAR THE LORD OUR GOD, THAT GIVES RAIN, BOTH THE FORMER AND THE LATTER, IN HIS SEASONS; HE RESERVES UNTO US THE APPOINTED WEEKS OF THE HARVEST.
  99. YOUR INIQUITIES HAVE TURNED AWAT THESE THINGS AND YOUR SINS HAVE WITHHOLDEN GOOD THINGS FROM YOU.
  100. HEAR O EARTH: BEHOLD, I WILL BRING EVIL UPON THIS PEOPLE, EVEN THE FRUITS OF THEIR THOUGHTS, BECAUSE THEY HAVE NOT LISTENED TO MY WORDS, NOR TO MY LAW, BUT REJECTED IT.
  101. BUT THIS THING I COMMANDED THEM SAYING, OBEY MY VOICE AND I WILL BE YOUR GOD AND YOU SHALL BE MY PEOPLE: AND WALK YOU IN ALL THE WAYS THAT I HAVE COMMANDED YOU, THAT IT MAY BE WELL WITH YOU.
  102. BUT THEY LISTENED NOT, NOR INCLINED THEIR EAR, BUT WALKED IN THE COUNSELS AND IN THE IMAGINATION OF THEIR EVIL HEART AND WENT BACKWARD AND NOT FORWARD.
  103. BUT YOU SHALL SAY TO THEM, THIS IS A NATION, (AMERICA), THAT OBEYS NOT THE VOICE OF THE LORD THEIR GOD, NOR RECEIVED CORRECTION: TRUTH IS PERISHED AND IS CUT OFF FROM THEIR MOUTH.
  104. THUS SAYS THE LORD, LET NOT THE WISE MAN GLORY IN HIS WISDOM, NEITHER LET THE MIGHTY MAN GLORY IN HIS MIGHT, LET NOT THE RICH MAN GLORY IN HIS RICHES:
  105. BUT LET HIM THAT GLORIES, GLORY IN THIS, THAT HE UNDERSTAND AND KNOWS ME, THAT I AM THE LORD THAT EXERCISES LOVINGKINDNESS, JUDGMENT, AND RIGHTEOUSNESS, IN THE EARTH: FOR IN THESE THINGS I DELIGHT, SAYS THE LORD.
  106. THUS SAYS THE LORD, LEARN NOT THE WAYS OF THE HEATHEN AND BE NOT DISMAYED AT THE SIGNS OF HEAVEN; FOR THE HEATHEN ARE DISMAYED AT THEM.

  108. ***********THEY DECK THE TREE WITH SILVER AND GOLD;****** THEY FASTEN IT WITH NAILS AND WITH HAMMERS, THAT IT MOVE NOT.
  109. WHO WOULD NOT FEAR YOU O KING OF THE NATIONS.
  110. BUT THE LORD IS THE TRUE GOD, HE IS THE LIVING GOD AND AN EVERLASTING KING: AT HIS WRATH THE EARTH SHALL TREMBLE AND THE NATIONS SHALL NOT BE ABLE TO ABIDE HIS INDIGNATION.
  111. HE HAS MADE THE EARTH BY HIS POWER, HE HAS ESTABLISHED THE WORLD BY HIS WISDOM AND HAS STRETCHED OUT THE HEAVENS BY HIS DISCRETION.
  112. WHEN HE UTTERS HIS VOICE, THERE IS A MULTITUDE OF WATERS IN THE HEAVENS AND HE CAUSES THE VAPORS TO ASCEND FROM THE ENDS OF THE EARTH; HE MAKES LIGHTNINGS WITH RAIN AND BRINGS FORTH THE WIND OUT OF HIS TREASURES.
  113. O LORD I KNOW THAT THE WAY OF MAN IS NOT IN HIMSELF: IT IS NOT IN MAN THAT LIVES TO DIRECT HIS STEPS.
  114. O LORD CORRECT ME BUT WITH JUDGMENT; NOT IN YOUR ANGER, THAT YOU BRING ME TO NOTHING.
  115. THEN THE LORD SAID UNTO ME, THE PROPHETS PROPHESY LIES IN MY NAME: I SENT THEM NOT, NEITHER SPOKE UNTO THEM: THEY PROPHESY UNTO YOU A FALSE VISION AND DIVINATION AND A THING OF NOTHING AND THE DECEIT OF THEIR HEART.
  116. YOU HAVE FORSAKEN ME SAYS THE LORD, YOU ARE GONE BACKWARD: THEREFORE WILL I STRETCH OUT MY HAND AGAINST YOU AND DESTROY YOU; I AM WEARY WITH REPENTING.
  117. SHALL A MAN MAKE gods UNTO HIMSELF AND THEY ARE NO gods?
  118. THEREFORE BEHOLD, I WILL CAUSE THEM TO KNOW, I WILL CAUSE THEM TO KNOW MINE HAND AND MY MIGHT; AND THEY SHALL KNOW THAT MY NAME IS "THE LORD".
  119. THUS SAYS THE LORD, CURSED BE THE MAN THAT TRUSTS IN MAN AND MAKES FLESH HIS ARM AND WHOSE HEART DEPARTS FROM THE LORD.
  120. BLESSED IS THE MAN THAT TRUSTS IN THE LORD AND WHOSE HOPE THE LORD IS.
  121. FOR HE SHALL BE AS A TREE PLANTED BY THE WATERS AND THAT SPREADS OUT HER ROOTS BY THE RIVER AND SHALL NOT SEE WHEN HEAT COMES, BUT HER LEAF SHALL BE GREEN; AND SHALL NOT BE ANXIOUS IN THE YEAR OF DROUGHT, NEITHER SHALL CEASE FROM YIELDING FRUIT.
  122. THE HEART IS DECEITFUL ABOVE ALL THINGS AND DESPERATELY WICKED: WHO CAN KNOW IT?
  123. I THE LORD SEARCHES THE HEART, I TRY THE REINS, EVEN TO GIVE EVERY MAN ACCORDING TO HIS WAYS AND ACCORDING TO THE FRUIT OF HIS DOINGS.
  124. AS THE PARTRIDGE SITS ON EGGS AND HATCHES THEM NOT; SO HE THAT GETS RICHES AND NOT BY RIGHT, SHALL LEAVE THEM IN THE MIDST OF HIS DAYS AND AT HIS END SHALL BE A FOOL.
  125. O LORD THE HOPE OF ISRAEL, ALL THAT FORSAKE YOU SHALL BE ASHAMED AND THEY THAT DEPART FROM ME SHALL BE WRITTEN IN THE EARTH, BECAUSE THEY HAVE FORSAKEN THE LORD, THE FOUNTAIN OF LIVING WATER.
  126. HEAL ME O LORD AND I SHALL BE HEALED; SAVE ME AND I SHALL BE SAVED: FOR YOU ARE MY PRAISE.
  127. BE NOT A TERRO TO ME; FOR YOU ARE MY HOPE IN THE DAY OF EVIL AND DOOM.
  128. AT WHAT INSTANT I SHALL SPEAK CONCERNING A NATION AND CONCERNING A KINGDOM, TO PLUCK UP AND TO PULL DOWN AND TO DESTROY IT;
  129. IF THAT NATION, AGAINST WHOM I HAVE PRONOUNCED, TURN FROM THEIR EVIL, I WILL REPENT OF THE EVIL THAT I THOUGHT TO DO TO THEM.
  130. IF IT DO EVIL IN MY SIGHT, THAT IT WILL NOT OBEY MY VOICE, THEN I WILL REPENT OF THE GOOD WHEREWITH I SAID I WOULD BENEFIT THEM.
  131. BEHOLD, I FRAME EVIL AGAINST YOU AND DEVISE A PLAN AGAINST YOU; RETURN YOU NOW EVERYONE FROM HIS EVIL WAY AND MAKE YOUR WAYS AND YOUR DOINGS GOOD.
  132. WOE TO HIM THAT BUILDS HIS HOUSE BY UNRIGHTEOUSNESS AND HIS CHAMBERS BY WRONG? THAT USES HIS NEIGHBORS SERVICE WITHOUT WAGES AND GIVES HIM NOT FOR HIS WORK;
  133. BEHOLD THE DAYS COME SAYS THE LORD, THAT I WILL RAISE UNTO DAVID A RIGHTEOUS BRANCH AND A KING SHALL REIGN AND PROSPER AND SHALL EXECUTE JUDGMENT AND JUSTICE IN THE EARTH.
  134. ***IN HIS DAYS JUDAH SHALL BE SAVED AND ISRAEL SHALL LIVE SAFELY : AND THIS IS HIS NAME WHEREBY HE SHALL BE CALLED, **THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS**.
  135. THE PROPHETS SAY STILL TO THEM THAT DESPISE ME, THE LORD HAS SAID, YOU SHALL HAVE PEACE; AND THEY SAY TO EVERY ONE THAT LIVES AFTER THE IMAGINATION OF HIS  OWN HEART, NO EVIL SHALL COME UPON YOU.
  136. BEHOLD A WHIRLWIND OF THE LORD IS GONE FORTH IN FURY, EVEN A GRIEVEIOUS WHIRLWIND: IT SHALL FALL VIOLENTLY UPON THE HEAD OF THE WICKED.
  137. THE ANGER OF THEN LORD SHALL NOT RETURN UNTIL HE HAS EXECUTED AND TILL HE HAVE PERFORMED THE THOUGHTS OF HIS HEART: IN THE LATTER DAYS YOU SHALL CONSIDER IT PERFECTLY.
  138. AM I A GOD AT HAND SAYS THE LORD AND NOT A GOD AFAR OFF?
  139. CAN ANY HIDE HIMSELF IN SECRET PLACES THAT I SHALL NOT SEE HIM? SAYS THE LORD. DO NOT I FILL HEAVEN AND EARTH? SAYS THE LORD.
  140. IS NOT MY WORD LIKE AS A FIRE? SAYS THE LORD; AND LIKE A HAMMER THAT BREAKS THE ROCK IN PIECES?
  141. THEREFORE BEHOLD I AM AGAINST THE PROPHETS SAYS THE LORD, THAT STEAL MY WORDS EVERY ONE FROM HIS NEIGHBOR.
  142. BEHOLD I AM AGAINST THE PROPHETS SAYS THE LORD, THAT USE THEIR TONGUES AND SAYS, HE SAYS.
  143. BEHOLD I AM AGAINST THOSE THAT PROPHESY FALSE DREAMS SAYS THE LORD, AND DO TELL THEM AND CAUSE MY PEOPLE TO ERR BY THEIR LIES AND BY THEIR LIGHTNESS; YET I SENT THEM NOT, NOR COMMANDED THEM: THEREFORE THEY SHALL NOT PROFIT THIS PEOPLE AT ALL, SAYS THE LORD.
  144. AND THE BURDEN OF THE LORD SHALL YOU MENTION NO MORE: FOR EVERY MANS WORDS SHALL BE HIS BURDEN; FOR YOU HAVE PERVERTED THE WORDS OF THE LIVING GOD, OF THE LORD OF HOSTS OUR GOD.
  145. 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 TREAD THE GRAPES, AGAINST ALL THE INHABITANTS OF THE EARTH.
  146. A NOISE SHALL COME EVEN TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH; FOR THE LORD HAS A CONTROVERSY WITH THE NATIONS, HE WILL PLEAD WITH ALL FLESH; HE WILL GIVE THEM THAT ARE WICKED TO THE SWORD, SAYS THE LORD.
  147. THUS SAYS THE LORD OF HOSTS, BEHOLD EVIL SHALL FO FORTH FROM NATION TO NATION AND A GREAT WHIRLWIND SHALL BE RAISED UP FROM THE COASTS OF THE EARTH.
  148. 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.
  149. HEAR NOW, HANANIAH,(PREACHERS), THE LORD HAS NOT SENT YOU; BUT YOU MAKE THIS PEOPLE TO TRUST IN A LIE.
  150. THEREFORE THUS SAYS THE LORD, BEHOLD I WILL CAST YOU FROM THE FACE OF THE EARTH: THIS YEAR YOU SHALL DIE BECAUSE YOU HAVE TAUGHT REBELLION AGAINST THE LORD.
  151. IT IS OF THE LORDS MERCIES THAT WE ARE NOT CONSUMED, BECAUSE HIS COMPASSIONS FAIL NOT. 
  152. THEY ARE NEW EVERY MORNING; GREAT IS YOUR FAITHFULNSS.
  153. THE LORD IS MY PORTION SAYS MY SOUL; THEREFORE WILL I HOPE IN HIM.
  154. THE LORD IUS GOOD TO THOSE THAT WAIT FOR HIM, TO THE SOUL THAT SEEK HIM.
  155. IT IS GOOD THAT A MAN SHOULD BOTH HOPE AND QUIETLY WAIT FOR THE SALVATION OF THE LORD.
  156. IT IS GOOD FOR A MAN THAT HE BEAR THE YOKE IN HIS YOUTH.
  157. LET HIM SIT ALONE AND KEEP SILENCE, BECAUSE HE HAS BORNE IT UPON HIM.
  158. SON OF MAN, I HAVE MADE YOU A WATCHMAN TO THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL,(THOSE TODAY ADOPTED INTO ISRAEL BY BEING BORN AGAIN): THEREFORE HEAR THE WORD AT MY MOUTH AND GIVE THEM WARNING FROM ME.
  159. WHEN I SAY TO THE WICKED, YOU SHALL SURELY DIE; AND YOU GIVE HIM NOT WARNING, NOR SPEAK TO WARN THE WICKED FROM HIS WICKED WAY, TO SAVE HIS LIFE; THE SAME WICKED MAN SHALL DIE IN HIS INIQUITY; BUT HIS BLOOD WILL I REQUIRE AT YOUR HAND.
  160. YET IF YOU WARN THE WICKED AND HE TURN NOT FROM HIS WICKEDNESS, NOR FROM HIS WICKED WAY, HE SHALL DIE IN HIS INIQUITY; BUT YOU SHALL HAVE DELIVERED YOUR SOUL.
  161. AGAIN, WHEN A RIGHTEOUS MAN DOES TURN FROM HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS AND COMMIT INIQUITY AND I LAY A STUMBLINGBLOCK BEFORE HIM, HE SHALL DIE: BECAUSE YOU HAVE NOT GIVEN HIM WARNING, HE SHALL DIE IN HIS SIN AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS WHICH HE HAS DONE, SHALL NOT BE REMEBERE; BUT HIS BLOOD WILL I REQUIRE AT YOUR HAND.
  162. NEVERTHELESS IF YOU WARN THE RIGHTEOUS MAN, THAT THE RIGHTEOUS SIN NOT AND HE DOES NOT SIN, HE SHALL SURELY LIVE BECAUSE HE IS WARNED; ALSO YOU HAVE DELIVERED YOUR SOUL.
  163. YET SAY YOU, WHY? DOES NOT THE SON BEAR THE INIQUITY OF THE FATHER? WHEN THE SON HAS DONE THAT WHICH IS LAWFUL AND RIGHT AND HAS KEPT ALL MY STATUES AND HAS DONE THEM, HE SHALL SURELY LIVE.
  164. THE SOUL THAT SINS, IT SHALL DIE. THE SON SHALL NOT BEAR THE INIQUITY OF THE FATHER, NEITHER SHALL THE FATHER BEAR THE INIQUITY OF THE SON: THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF THE RIGHTEOUS SHALL BE UPON HIM, AND THE WICKEDNESS OF THE WICKED SHALL BE UPON HIM.
  165. BUT IF THE WICKED WILL TURN FROM ALL HIS SINS THAT HE HAS COMMITTED AND KEEP ALL MY STATUES, AND DO THAT WHICH IS LAWFUL AND RIGHT, HE SHALL SURELY LIVE, HE SHALL NOT DIE.
  166. ALL HIS TRANSGRESSIONS WHICH HE HAS COMMITTED, THEY SHALL NOT BE MENTIONED TO HIM: IN HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS THAT HE HAS DONE, HE SHALL LIVE.
  167. HAVE I ANY PLEASURE AT ALL THAT THE WICKED SHOULD DIE? SAYS THE LORD: AND NOT THAT HE SHOULD RETURN FROM HIS WAYS AND LIVE?
  168. BUT WHEN THE RIGHTEOUS TURNS AWAY FROM HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND COMMITS INIQUITY AND DOES ACCORDING TO ALL THE ABOMINATIONS THAT THE WICKED MAN DOES, SHALL HE LIVE? ALL HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS THAT HE HAS DONE SHALL NOT BE MENTIONED: IN HIS TRESPASS THAT HE HAS TRESPASSED, AND IN HIS SIN THAT HE HAS SINNED, IN THEM SHALL HE DIE.
  169. YET YOU SAY, THE WAY OF THE LORD IS NOT EQUAL. HEAR NOW , O HOUSE OF ISRAEL; IS NOT MY WAYS EQUAL? ARE NOT YOUR WAYS UNEQUAL?
  170. WHEN A RIGHTEOUS MAN TURNS AWAY FROM HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS AND COMMITS INIQUITY, AND DIES IN THEM; FOR HIS INIQUITY THAT HE HAS DONE, SHALL HE DIE.
  171. AGAIN, WHEN THE WICKED MAN TURNS AWAY FROM HIS WICKEDNESS THAT HE HAS COMMITTED AND DOES THAT WHICH IS LAWFUL AND RIGHT, HE SHALL SAVE HIS SOUL ALIVE.
  172. BECAUSE HE CONSIDERS AND TURNS AWAY FROM ALL HIS TRANSGRESSIONS THAT HE HAS COMMITTED, HE SHALL SURELY LIVE, HE SHALL NOT DIE.'
  173. FOR I HAVE NO PLEASURE IN THE DEATH OF HIM THAT DIES, SAYS THE LORD GOD: WHEREFORE TURN YOURSELVES AND LIVE YOU.
  174. I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD; WALK IN MY STATUES AND KEEP MY JUDGMENTS AND DO THEM;
  175. AND HALLOW MY SDABBATHS; AND THEY SHALL BE A SIGN BETWEEN ME AND YOU, THAT YOU MAY KNOW THAT I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD.
  176. THEY HAVE PUT NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE HOLY AND PROFANE, NEITHER HAVE THEY SHOWN DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE UNCLEAN AND THE CLEAN AND HAVE HID THEIR EYES FROM MY SABBATHS AND I AM PROFANED AMONG THEM.
  177. AND I SOUGHT FOR A MAN AMONG THEM, THAT SHOULD MAKE UP THE HEDGE AND STAND IN THE GAP BEFORE ME IN THE LAND, THAT I SHOUYLD NOT DESTROY IT: BUT I FOUND NONE.
  178. THEREFORE HAVE I POURED OUT MINE INDIGNATION UPON THEM; I HAVE CONSUMED THEM WITH THE FIRE OF MY WRATH; THEIR OWN WAYS HAVE I RECOMPENSED ON THEIR OWN HEADS, SAYS THE LORD GOD.
  179. I THE LORD HAVE SPOKEN IT: IT SHALL COME TO PASS AND I WILL DO IT; I WILL NOT GO BACK, NEITHER WILL I SPARE, NEITHER WILL I REPENT; ACCORDING TO YOUR DOINGS, SHALL THEY JUDGE YOU, SAYS THE LORD GOD.
  180. SO YOU O SON OF MAN, I HAVE SET YOU A WATCHMAN TO THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL,(CHURCH); THEREFORE YOU SHALL HEAR THE WORD AT MY MOUTH AND WARN THEM FOR ME.
  181. WHEN I SAY TO THE WICKED, O WICKED MAN, YOU SHALL SURELY DIE; IF YOU DON'T SPEAK TO WARN THE WICKED FROM HIS WAY, THAT WICKED MAN SHALL DIE IN HIS INIQUITY; BUT HIS BLOOD WILL I REQUIRE AT YOUR HAND.
  182. AGAIN WHEN I SAY TO THE WICKED, YOU SHALL SURELY DIE; IF HE TURN FROM HIS SIN AND DO THAT WHICH IS LAWFUL AND RIGHT;
  183. IF THE WICKED RESTORE THE PLEDGE, GIVE AGAIN THAT HE HAD ROBBED, WALK IN THE STATUES OF LIFE, WITHOUT COMMITTING INIQUITY; HE SHALL SURELY LIVE, HE SHALL NOT DIE.
  184. NONE OF HIS SINS THAT HE HAS COMMITTED SHALL BE MENTIONED TO HIM: HE HAS DONE THAT WHICH IS LAWFUL AND RIGHT; HE SHALL SURELY LIVE.
  185. ***READ VERSES OF 1-14 OF CHAPTER 37 OF EZEKIEL**
  186. THEN THE LORD BROUGHT ME BACK THE WAY OF THE GATE OF THE OUTWARD SANCTUARY WHICH LOOKS TOWARDS THE EAST; AND IT WAS SHUT.
  187. THEN THE LORD SAID TO ME; THIS GATE SHALL BE SHUT, IT SHALL NOT BE OPENED AND NO MAN SHALL ENTER IN BY IT; BECAUSE THE LORD, THE GOD OF ISRAEL, HAS ENTERED IN BY IT, THEREFORE IT SHALL BE SHUT.
  188. IT IS FOR THE PRINCE; THE PRINCE, HE SHALL SIT IN IT TO EAT BREAD BEFORE THE LORD; HE SHALL ENTER BY THE WAY OF THE PORCH OF THAT GATE, AND SHALL GO OUT BY THE WAY OF THE SAME.
  189. DANIEL ANSWERED AND SAID, BLESSED BE THE NAME OF GOD FOREVER AND EVER: FOR WISDOM AND MIGHT ARE HIS:
  190. AND HE CHANGES TIMES AND SEASONS: HE REMOVES KINGS AND SETS UP KINGS: HE GIVES WISDOM TO THE WISE AND KNOWLEDGE TO THOSE THAT KNOW UNDERSTANDING:
  191. HE REVEALS THE DEEP AND SECRET THINGS: HE KNOWS WHAT IS IN THE DARKNESS AND THE LIGHT DWELLS WITH HIM.
  192. THE KING ANSWERED TO DANIEL AND SAID, OF A TRUTH IT IS, THAT YOUR GOD IS A GOD OF gods AND A LORD OF KINGS AND A REVEALER OF SECRETS, SEEING YOU COULD REVEAL THIS SECRET.
