Isaiah 30:1-33
1. Woe to the rebellious children, saith Jehovah, who take counsel, but not of me, and who make leagues, but not by my Spirit, that they may heap sin upon sin;
2. who walk to go down into Egypt, and have not asked of my mouth, to take refuge under the protection of Pharaoh, and trust in the shadow of Egypt!
3. For to you the protection of Pharaoh shall be a shame, and the trust in the shadow of Egypt a confusion.
4. For his princes were at Zoan, and his ambassadors came to Hanes.
5. They were all ashamed of a people [that] did not profit them, nor were a help or profit, but a shame, and also a reproach.
6. The burden of the beasts of the south: Through a land of trouble and anguish, whence come the lioness and lion, the viper and fiery flying serpent, they carry their riches upon the shoulders of asses, and their treasures upon the bunches of camels, to the people that shall not profit [them].
7. For Egypt shall help in vain, and to no purpose; therefore have I named her, Arrogance, that doeth nothing.
8. Now go, write it before them on a tablet, and record it in a book, that it may be for the time to come, as a witness for ever,
9. that this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of Jehovah;
10. who say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things; speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits;
11. get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us!
12. Therefore thus saith the Holy One of Israel: Because ye reject this word, and confide in oppression and wilfulness, and depend thereon,
13. therefore this iniquity shall be to you as a breach ready to fall, swelling out in a towering wall, whose breaking shall come suddenly in an instant.
14. And he shall break it as the breaking of a potter's vessel, that is broken in pieces unsparingly; and in the pieces of it there shall not be found a sherd to take fire from the hearth, or to scoop water out of the cistern.
15. For thus saith the Lord Jehovah, the Holy One of Israel: In returning and rest shall ye be saved, in quietness and confidence shall be your strength; but ye would not.
16. And ye said, No, but we will flee upon horses, therefore shall ye flee; and, We will ride upon the swift, therefore shall they that pursue you be swift.
17. One thousand [shall flee] at the rebuke of one; at the rebuke of five shall ye flee: till ye be left as a beacon upon the top of a mountain, and as a banner on a hill.
18. And therefore will Jehovah wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he lift himself up, that he may have mercy upon you; for Jehovah is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him.
19. For the people shall dwell in Zion, at Jerusalem. Thou shalt weep no more; he will be very gracious unto thee at the voice of thy cry; as he heareth it, he will answer thee.
20. And the Lord will give you the bread of adversity, and the water of oppression; yet thy teachers shall not be hidden any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers.
21. And when ye turn to the right hand or when ye turn to the left, thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it.
22. And ye shall defile the silver covering of your graven images, and the gold overlaying of your molten images; thou shalt cast them away as a menstruous cloth: Out! shalt thou say unto it.
23. And he will give the rain of thy seed with which thou shalt sow the ground; and bread, the produce of the ground, and it shall be fat and rich. In that day shall thy cattle feed in large pastures;
24. and the oxen and the asses that till the ground shall eat salted provender, which hath been winnowed with the shovel and with the fan.
25. And there shall be upon every high mountain and upon every hill that is lifted up, brooks [and] water-courses, in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall.
26. And 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 Jehovah bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the wound of their stroke.
27. Behold, the name of Jehovah cometh from far, burning [with] his anger a grievous conflagration; his lips are full of indignation, and his tongue as a consuming fire;
28. and his breath as an overflowing torrent, which reacheth even to the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of destruction, and [to put] a bridle into the jaws of the peoples, that causeth them to go astray.
29. Ye shall have a song, as in the night when a feast is sanctified; and joy of heart, as of one who goeth with a pipe to come unto the mountain of Jehovah, to the Rock of Israel.
30. And Jehovah will cause the majesty of his voice to be heard, and will shew the lighting down of his arm with indignation of anger, and a flame of consuming fire, with waterflood and storm and hailstones.
31. For through the voice of Jehovah shall the Assyrian be broken down: he will smite [him] with the rod.
32. And wherever shall pass the appointed staff, which Jehovah shall lay upon him, it shall be with tambours and harps; and with tumultuous battles will he fight with it.
33. For Topheth is prepared of old; for the king also it is prepared: he hath made it deep and large; its pile is fire and much wood; the breath of Jehovah, like a stream of brimstone, doth kindle it.

Isaiah 31:1-9
1. Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help, and depend on horses, and confide in chariots because [they are] many, and in horsemen because they are very strong; and who look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek Jehovah!
2. But he also is wise, and he bringeth evil, and recalleth not his words; and he will arise against the house of evildoers, and against the help of workers of iniquity.
3. And the Egyptians are men, and not God, and their horses flesh, and not spirit; and Jehovah shall stretch forth his hand, and he that helpeth shall stumble, and he that is helped shall fall, and they all shall perish together.
4. For thus hath Jehovah said unto me: Like as the lion and the young lion growling over his prey, when a multitude of shepherds is called forth against him, is not afraid of their voice, nor giveth way before the multitude of them; so will Jehovah of hosts come down to war upon mount Zion, and on the hill thereof.
5. As birds with outstretched wings, so will Jehovah of hosts cover Jerusalem; covering, he will also deliver, passing over, he will rescue [it].
6. Turn unto him from whom ye have deeply revolted, ye children of Israel;
7. for in that day every man shall cast away his idols of silver and his idols of gold, which your sinful hands have made unto you.
8. And Asshur shall fall by the sword, not of a great man; and the sword, not of a mean man, shall devour him: and he shall flee from the sword, and his young men shall become tributary;
9. and for fear, he shall pass over to his rock, and his princes shall be afraid of the banner, saith Jehovah, whose fire is in Zion, and his furnace in Jerusalem.

Isaiah 32:1-20
1. Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment.
2. And a man shall be as a hiding-place from the wind, and a covert from the storm; as brooks of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a thirsty land.
3. And the eyes of them that see shall not be dim, and the ears of them that hear shall hearken;
4. and the heart of the rash shall understand knowledge, and the tongue of the stammerers shall be ready to speak plainly.
5. The vile man shall be no more called noble, nor the churl said to be bountiful:
6. for the vile man will speak villainy, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, and to utter error against Jehovah, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and to cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.
7. The instruments also of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the meek with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right.
8. But the noble deviseth noble things; and to noble things doth he stand.
9. Rise up, ye women that are at ease, hear my voice; ye careless daughters, give ear unto my speech.
10. In a year and [some] days shall ye be troubled, ye careless women; for the vintage shall fail, the ingathering shall not come.
11. Tremble, ye women that are at ease; be troubled, ye careless ones; strip you, and make you bare, and gird [sackcloth] on your loins!
12. They shall smite on the breasts [in lamentation] for the pleasant fields, for the fruitful vineyards.
13. Upon the land of my people shall come up thistles [and] briars, yea, upon all the houses of joy in the joyous city.
14. For the palace shall be deserted, the multitude of the city shall be forsaken; hill and watchtower shall be caves for ever, a joy of wild asses, a pasture of flocks;
15. until the Spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness become a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted for a forest.
16. And judgment shall inhabit the wilderness, and righteousness dwell in the fruitful field.
17. And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance for ever.
18. And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting-places.
19. And it shall hail, coming down on the forest; and the city shall be low in a low place.
20. Blessed are ye that sow beside all waters, that send forth the feet of the ox and the ass.

Psalms 108:7-13
7. God hath spoken in his holiness: I will exult, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.
8. Gilead is mine, Manasseh is mine, and Ephraim is the strength of my head; Judah is my law-giver;
9. Moab is my wash-pot; upon Edom will I cast my sandal; over Philistia will I shout aloud.

2 Corinthians 11:16-33
16. Again I say, Let not any one think me to be a fool; but if otherwise, receive me then even as a fool, that *I* also may boast myself some little.
17. What I speak I do not speak according to [the] Lord, but as in folly, in this confidence of boasting.
18. Since many boast according to flesh, *I* also will boast.
19. For ye bear fools readily, being wise.
20. For ye bear if any one bring you into bondage, if any one devour [you], if any one get [your money], if any one exalt himself, if any one beat you on the face.
21. I speak as to dishonour, as though *we* had been weak; but wherein any one is daring, (I speak in folly,) *I* also am daring.
22. Are they Hebrews? *I* also. Are they Israelites? *I* also. Are they seed of Abraham? *I* also.
23. Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as being beside myself) *I* above measure [so]; in labours exceedingly abundant, in stripes to excess, in prisons exceedingly abundant, in deaths oft.
24. From the Jews five times have I received forty [stripes], save one.
25. Thrice have I been scourged, once I have been stoned, three times I have suffered shipwreck, a night and day I passed in the deep:
26. in journeyings often, in perils of rivers, in perils of robbers, in perils from [my own] race, in perils from [the] nations, in perils in [the] city, in perils in [the] desert, in perils on [the] sea, in perils among false brethren;
27. in labour and toil, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.
28. Besides those things that are without, the crowd [of cares] pressing on me daily, the burden of all the assemblies.
29. Who is weak, and I am not weak? Who is stumbled, and I burn not?
30. If it is needful to boast, I will boast in the things which concern my infirmity.
31. The God and Father of the Lord Jesus knows he who is blessed for ever that I do not lie.
32. In Damascus the ethnarch of Aretas the king kept the city of the Damascenes shut up, wishing to take me;
