Isaiah 17:1-14
1. The burden of Damascus. Lo, Damascus is taken away from [being] a city, And it hath been a heap -- a ruin.
2. Forsaken are the cities of Aroer, For droves they are, and they have lain down, And there is none troubling.
3. And ceased hath the fortress from Ephraim, And the kingdom from Damascus, And the remnant of Aram are as the honour of the sons of Israel, The affirmation of Jehovah of Hosts!
4. And it hath come to pass, in that day, Wax poor doth the honour of Jacob, And the fatness of his flesh doth wax lean.
5. And it hath come to pass, As the gathering by the reaper of the standing corn, And his arm the ears reapeth, And it hath come to pass, As the gathering of the ears in the valley of Rephaim,
6. And left in him have been gleanings, As the compassing of an olive, Two -- three berries on the top of a branch, Four -- five on the fruitful boughs, The affirmation of Jehovah, God of Israel!
7. In that day doth man look to His Maker, Yea, his eyes to the Holy One of Israel look,
8. And he looketh not unto the altars. The work of his own hands, And that which his own fingers made He seeth not -- the shrines and the images.
9. In that day are the cities of his strength As the forsaken thing of the forest, And the branch that they have left, Because of the sons of Israel, It also hath been a desolation.
10. Because thou hast forgotten the God of thy salvation, And the rock of thy strength hast not remembered, Therefore thou plantest plants of pleasantness, And with a strange slip sowest it,
11. In the day thy plant thou causest to become great, And in the morning thy seed makest to flourish, A heap [is] the harvest in a day of overflowing, And of mortal pain.
12. Wo [to] the multitude of many peoples, As the sounding of seas they sound; And [to] the wasting of nations, As the wasting of mighty waters they are wasted.
13. Nations as the wasting of many waters are wasted, And He hath pushed against it, And it hath fled afar off, And been pursued as chaff of hills before wind, And as a rolling thing before a hurricane.
14. At even-time, lo, terror, before morning it is not, This [is] the portion of our spoilers, And the lot of our plunderers!

Isaiah 18:1-7
1. Ho, land shadowed [with] wings, That [is] beyond the rivers of Cush,
2. That is sending by sea ambassadors, Even with implements of reed on the face of the waters, -- Go, ye light messengers, Unto a nation drawn out and peeled, Unto a people fearful from its beginning and onwards, A nation meeting out by line, and treading down, Whose land floods have spoiled.
3. All ye inhabitants of the world, And ye dwellers of earth, At the lifting up of an ensign on hills ye look, And at the blowing of a trumpet ye hear.
4. For thus said Jehovah unto me, `I rest, and I look on My settled place, As a clear heat on an herb. As a thick cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.
5. For before harvest, when the flower is perfect, And the blossom is producing unripe fruit, Then hath [one] cut the sprigs with pruning hooks, And the branches he hath turned aside, cut down.
6. They are left together to the ravenous fowl of the mountains, And to the beast of the earth, And summered on them hath the ravenous fowl, And every beast of the earth wintereth on them.
7. At that time brought is a present to Jehovah of Hosts, A nation drawn out and peeled. Even of a people fearful from the beginning hitherto, A nation meting out by line, and treading down, Whose land floods have spoiled, Unto the place of the name of Jehovah of Hosts -- mount Zion!`

Psalms 106:32-39
32. And they cause wrath by the waters of Meribah, And it is evil to Moses for their sakes,
33. For they have provoked his spirit, And he speaketh wrongfully with his lips.
34. They have not destroyed the peoples, As Jehovah had said to them,
35. And mix themselves among nations, and learn their works,
36. And serve their idols, And they are to them for a snare.
37. And they sacrifice their sons And their daughters to destroyers,
38. And they shed innocent blood -- Blood of their sons and of their daughters, Whom they have sacrificed to idols of Canaan, And the land is profaned with blood.
39. And they are defiled with their works, And commit whoredom in their habitual doings.

Proverbs 25:11-12
11. Apples of gold in imagery of silver, [Is] the word spoken at its fit times.
12. A ring of gold, and an ornament of pure gold, [Is] the wise reprover to an attentive ear.

2 Corinthians 5:1-21
1. For we have known that if our earthly house of the tabernacle may be thrown down, a building from God we have, an house not made with hands -- age-during -- in the heavens,
2. for also in this we groan, with our dwelling that is from heaven earnestly desiring to clothe ourselves,
3. if so be that, having clothed ourselves, we shall not be found naked,
4. for we also who are in the tabernacle do groan, being burdened, seeing we wish not to unclothe ourselves, but to clothe ourselves, that the mortal may be swallowed up of the life.
5. And He who did work us to this self-same thing [is] God, who also did give to us the earnest of the Spirit;
6. having courage, then, at all times, and knowing that being at home in the body, we are away from home from the Lord, --
7. for through faith we walk, not through sight --
8. we have courage, and are well pleased rather to be away from the home of the body, and to be at home with the Lord.
9. Wherefore also we are ambitious, whether at home or away from home, to be well pleasing to him,
10. for all of us it behoveth to be manifested before the tribunal of the Christ, that each one may receive the things [done] through the body, in reference to the things that he did, whether good or evil;
11. having known, therefore, the fear of the Lord, we persuade men, and to God we are manifested, and I hope also in your consciences to have been manifested;
12. for not again ourselves do we recommend to you, but we are giving occasion to you of glorifying in our behalf, that ye may have [something] in reference to those glorifying in face and not in heart;
13. for whether we were beside ourselves, [it was] to God; whether we be of sound mind -- [it is] to you,
14. for the love of the Christ doth constrain us, having judged thus: that if one for all died, then the whole died,
15. and for all he died, that those living, no more to themselves may live, but to him who died for them, and was raised again.
16. So that we henceforth have known no one according to the flesh, and even if we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know him no more;
17. so that if any one [is] in Christ -- [he is] a new creature; the old things did pass away, lo, become new have the all things.
18. And the all things [are] of God, who reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and did give to us the ministration of the reconciliation,
19. how that God was in Christ -- a world reconciling to Himself, not reckoning to them their trespasses; and having put in us the word of the reconciliation,
20. in behalf of Christ, then, we are ambassadors, as if God were calling through us, we beseech, in behalf of Christ, `Be ye reconciled to God;`
21. for him who did not know sin, in our behalf He did make sin, that we may become the righteousness of God in him.
