Isaiah 33:1-24
1. Woe to thee that spoilest, and thou wast not spoiled; and that dealest treacherously, and they dealt not treacherously with thee! When thou shalt cease to spoil, thou shalt be spoiled; when thou shalt make an end of dealing treacherously, they shall deal treacherously with thee.
2. Jehovah, be gracious unto us; we have waited for thee: be their arm every morning, yea, our salvation in the time of trouble.
3. At the noise of the tumult the peoples fled; at the lifting up of thyself the nations were scattered.
4. And your spoil shall be gathered [like] the gathering of the caterpillar: as the running of locusts shall they run upon it.
5. Jehovah is exalted; for he dwelleth on high: he hath filled Zion with justice and righteousness;
6. and he shall be the stability of thy times, the riches of salvation, wisdom and knowledge: the fear of Jehovah shall be your treasure.
7. Behold, their valiant ones cry without; the messengers of peace weep bitterly.
8. The highways are desolate, the wayfaring man ceaseth. He hath broken the covenant, he hath despised the cities, he regardeth no man.
9. The land mourneth, it languisheth; Lebanon is ashamed, is withered; the Sharon is become as a desert, and Bashan and Carmel are stripped.
10. Now will I arise, saith Jehovah; now will I be exalted, now will I lift up myself.
11. Ye shall conceive dry grass, ye shall bring forth stubble: your breath shall devour you [as] fire.
12. And the peoples shall be [as] burnings of lime, [as] thorns cut up shall they be burned in the fire.
13. Hear, ye that are far off, what I have done; and ye that are near, acknowledge my might.
14. The sinners in Zion are afraid; trembling hath surprised the hypocrites: Who among us shall dwell with the consuming fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting flames?
15. He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from taking hold of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil:
16. he shall dwell on high, the fortresses of the rocks shall be his high retreat; bread shall be given him, his water shall be sure.
17. Thine eyes shall see the King in his beauty; they shall behold the land that is far off.
18. Thy heart shall meditate on terror: Where is the scribe? where is the receiver? where is he that counted the towers?
19. Thou shalt no more see the fierce people, a people of a deeper speech than thou canst comprehend, of a stammering tongue that cannot be understood.
20. Look upon Zion, the city of our solemnities: thine eyes shall see Jerusalem a quiet habitation, a tent that shall not be removed, the stakes whereof shall never be pulled up, neither shall any of its cords be broken;
21. but there Jehovah is unto us glorious, a place of rivers, of broad streams: no galley with oars shall go there, neither shall gallant ship pass thereby.
22. For Jehovah is our judge, Jehovah, our lawgiver, Jehovah, our king: he will save us.
23. Thy tacklings are loosed; they strengthen not the socket of their mast, they cannot spread the sail: then is the prey of a great spoil divided; the lame take the prey.
24. And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven [their] iniquity.

Isaiah 34:1-17
1. Come near, ye nations, to hear; and hearken, ye peoples: let the earth hear, and all its fulness; the world, and all that cometh forth of it.
2. For the wrath of Jehovah is against all the nations, and [his] fury against all their armies: he hath devoted them to destruction, he hath delivered them to the slaughter.
3. And their slain shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up from their carcases, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood.
4. And all the host of the heavens shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll; and all their host shall fade away, as a leaf fadeth from off the vine, and as the withered [fruit] from the fig-tree.
5. For my sword is bathed in the heavens; behold, it shall come down upon Edom, and upon the people of my ban, to judgment.
6. The sword of Jehovah is filled with blood, it is made fat with fatness, with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams; for Jehovah hath a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Edom.
7. And the buffaloes shall come down with them, and the bullocks with the bulls; and their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness.
8. For it is the day of Jehovah's vengeance, the year of recompenses for the controversy of Zion.
9. And the torrents thereof shall be turned into pitch, and its dust into brimstone; yea, the land thereof shall become burning pitch:
10. it shall not be quenched night nor day; the smoke thereof shall go up for ever: from generation to generation it shall lie waste; none shall pass through it for ever and ever.
11. And the pelican and the bittern shall possess it, and the great owl and the raven shall dwell in it. And he shall stretch out upon it the line of waste, and the plummets of emptiness.
12. Of her nobles who should proclaim the kingdom, none are there; and all her princes shall be nought.
13. And thorns shall come up in her palaces, nettles and brambles in her fortresses; and it shall be a dwelling-place of wild dogs, a court for ostriches.
14. And there shall the beasts of the desert meet with the jackals, and the wild goat shall cry to his fellow; the lilith also shall settle there, and find for herself a place of rest.
15. There shall the arrow-snake make her nest, and lay, and hatch, and gather under her shadow; there also shall the vultures be gathered one with another.
16. Search ye in the book of Jehovah and read: not one of these shall fail, one shall not have to seek for the other; for my mouth, it hath commanded, and his Spirit, it hath gathered them.
17. For he himself hath cast the lot for them, and his hand hath divided it unto them with the line: they shall possess it for ever; from generation to generation shall they dwell therein.

Psalms 109:1-5
1. {To the chief Musician. Of David. A Psalm.} O God of my praise, be not silent:
2. For the mouth of the wicked [man] and the mouth of deceit are opened against me: they have spoken against me with a lying tongue,
3. And with words of hatred have they encompassed me; and they fight against me without a cause.
4. For my love they are mine adversaries; but I [give myself unto] prayer.
5. And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love.

Proverbs 25:25-26
25. [As] cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country.
26. A troubled fountain, and a defiled well, is a righteous [man] that giveth way before the wicked.

2 Corinthians 12:1-21
1. Well, it is not of profit to me to boast, for I will come to visions and revelations of [the] Lord.
2. I know a man in Christ, fourteen years ago, (whether in [the] body I know not, or out of the body I know not, God knows;) such [a one] caught up to [the] third heaven.
3. And I know such a man, (whether in [the] body or out of the body I know not, God knows;)
4. that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable things said which it is not allowed to man to utter.
5. Of such [a one] I will boast, but of myself I will not boast, unless in my weaknesses.
6. For if I shall desire to boast, I shall not be a fool; for I will say [the] truth; but I forbear, lest any one should think as to me above what he sees me [to be], or whatever he may hear of me.
7. And that I might not be exalted by the exceeding greatness of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn for the flesh, a messenger of Satan that he might buffet me, that I might not be exalted.
8. For this I thrice besought the Lord that it might depart from me.
9. And he said to me, My grace suffices thee; for [my] power is perfected in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather boast in my weaknesses, that the power of the Christ may dwell upon me.
10. Wherefore I take pleasure in weaknesses, in insults, in necessities, in persecutions, in straits, for Christ: for when I am weak, then I am powerful.
11. I have become a fool; *ye* have compelled me; for *I* ought to have been commended by you; for I have been nothing behind those who were in surpassing degree apostles, if also I am nothing.
12. The signs indeed of the apostle were wrought among you in all endurance, signs, and wonders, and works of power.
13. For in what is it that ye have been inferior to the other assemblies, unless that I myself have not been in laziness a charge upon you? Forgive me this injury.
14. Behold, this third time I am ready to come to you, and I will not be in laziness a charge; for I do not seek yours, but you; for the children ought not to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children.
15. Now *I* shall most gladly spend and be utterly spent for your souls, if even in abundantly loving you I should be less loved.
16. But be it so. *I* did not burden you, but being crafty I took you by guile.
17. Did I make gain of you by any of those whom I have sent to you?
18. I begged Titus, and sent the brother with [him]: did Titus at all make gain of you? have we not walked in the same spirit? [have we] not in the same steps?
19. Ye have long been supposing that we excuse ourselves to you: we speak before God in Christ; and all things, beloved, for your building up.
20. For I fear lest perhaps coming I find you not such as I wish, and that *I* be found by you such as ye do not wish: lest [there might be] strifes, jealousies, angers, contentions, evil speakings, whisperings, puffings up, disturbances;
21. lest my God should humble me as to you when I come again, and that I shall grieve over many of those who have sinned before, and have not repented as to the uncleanness and fornication and licentiousness which they have practised.
