Isaiah 33:1-24
1. Wo, spoiler! and thou not spoiled, And treacherous! and they dealt not treacherously with thee, When thou dost finish, O spoiler, thou art spoiled, When thou dost finish dealing treacherously, They deal treacherously with thee.
2. O Jehovah, favour us, for thee we have waited, Be their arm, in the mornings, Yea, our salvation in time of adversity.
3. From the voice of a multitude fled have peoples, From thine exaltation scattered have been nations.
4. And gathered hath been your spoil, A gathering of the caterpillar, As a running to and fro of locusts is he running on it.
5. Set on high is Jehovah, for He is dwelling on high, He filled Zion [with] judgment and righteousness,
6. And hath been the stedfastness of thy times, The strength of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge, Fear of Jehovah -- it [is] His treasure.
7. Lo, `Their Ariel,` they have cried without, Messengers of peace do weep bitterly.
8. Desolated have been highways, Ceased hath he who passeth along the path, He hath broken covenant, He hath despised enemies, He hath not esteemed a man.
9. Mourned, languished hath the land, Confounded hath been Lebanon, Withered hath been Sharon as a wilderness, And shaking are Bashan and Carmel.
10. Now, do I arise, saith Jehovah, Now I am exalted, now I am lifted up.
11. Ye conceive chaff, ye bear stubble, Your spirit! -- fire devoureth you.
12. And peoples have been [as] burnings of lime, Thorns, as sweepings, with fire they burn.
13. Hear, ye far off, that which I have done, And know, ye near ones, My might.
14. Afraid in Zion have been sinners, Seized hath trembling the profane: Who doth dwell for us -- consuming fire, Who doth dwell for us -- burnings of the age?
15. Whoso is walking righteously, And is speaking uprightly, Kicking against gain of oppressions, Shaking his hands from taking hold on a bribe, Stopping his ear from hearing of blood, And shutting his eyes from looking on evil,
16. He high places doth inhabit, Strongholds of rock [are] his high tower, His bread hath been given, his waters stedfast.
17. A king in his beauty, see do thine eyes, They see a land afar off.
18. Thy heart doth meditate terror, Where [is] he who is counting? Where [is] he who is weighing? Where [is] he who is counting the towers?
19. The strong people thou seest not, A people deeper of lip than to be understood, Of a scorned tongue, there is no understanding.
20. See Zion, the city of our meetings, Thine eyes see Jerusalem a quiet habitation, A tent not taken down, Not removed are its pins for ever, And none of its cords are broken.
21. But there mighty [is] Jehovah for us, A place of rivers -- streams broad of sides, No ship with oars doth go into it, And a mighty ship doth not pass over it.
22. For Jehovah our judge, Jehovah our lawgiver, Jehovah our king -- He doth save us.
23. Left have been thy ropes, They strengthen not rightly their mast, They have not spread out a sail, Then apportioned hath been a prey of much spoil, The lame have taken spoil.
24. Nor doth an inhabitant say, `I was sick,` The people that is dwelling in it, is forgiven of iniquity!

Isaiah 34:1-17
1. Come near, ye nations, to hear, And ye peoples, give attention, Hear doth the earth and its fulness, The world, and all its productions.
2. For wrath [is] to Jehovah against all the nations, And fury against all their host, He hath devoted them to destruction, He hath given them to slaughter.
3. And their wounded are cast out, And their carcases cause their stench to ascend, And melted have been mountains from their blood.
4. And consumed have been all the host of the heavens, And rolled together as a book have been the heavens, And all their hosts do fade, As the fading of a leaf of a vine, And as the fading one of a fig-tree.
5. For soaked in the heavens was My sword, Lo, on Edom it cometh down, On the people of My curse for judgment.
6. A sword [is] to Jehovah -- it hath been full of blood, It hath been made fat with fatness, With blood of lambs and he-goats. With fat of kidneys of rams, For a sacrifice [is] to Jehovah in Bozrah, And a great slaughter in the land of Edom.
7. And come down have reems with them, And bullocks with bulls, And soaked hath been their land from blood, And their dust from fatness is made fat.
8. (For a day of vengeance [is] to Jehovah, A year of recompences for Zion`s strife,)
9. And turned have been her streams to pitch, And her dust to brimstone, And her land hath become burning pitch.
10. By night and by day she is not quenched, To the age go up doth her smoke, From generation to generation she is waste, For ever and ever, none is passing into her.
11. And possess her do pelican and hedge-hog, And owl and raven dwell in her, And He hath stretched out over her A line of vacancy, and stones of emptiness.
12. [To] the kingdom her freemen they call, But there are none there, And all her princes are at an end.
13. And gone up her palaces have thorns, Nettle and bramble [are] in her fortresses, And it hath been a habitation of dragons, A court for daughters of an ostrich.
14. And met have Ziim with Aiim, And the goat for its companion calleth, Only there rested hath the night-owl, And hath found for herself a place of rest.
15. There made her nest hath the bittern, Yea, she layeth, and hath hatched, And hath gathered under her shadow, Only there gathered have been vultures, Each with its companion.
16. Seek out of the book of Jehovah, and read, One of these hath not been lacking, None hath missed its companion, For My mouth -- it hath commanded, And His spirit -- He hath gathered them.
17. And He hath cast for them a lot, And His hand hath apportioned [it] to them by line, Unto the age they possess it, To all generations they dwell in it!

Psalms 109:1-5
1. To the Overseer. -- A Psalm of David. O God of my praise, be not silent,
2. For the mouth of wickedness, and the mouth of deceit, Against me they have opened, They have spoken with me -- A tongue of falsehood, and words of hatred!
3. They have compassed me about, And they fight me without cause.
4. For my love they oppose me, and I -- prayer!
5. And they set against me evil for good, And hatred for my love.

Proverbs 25:25-26
25. [As] cold waters for a weary soul, So [is] a good report from a far country.
26. A spring troubled, and a fountain corrupt, [Is] the righteous falling before the wicked.

2 Corinthians 12:1-21
1. To boast, really, is not profitable for me, for I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord.
2. I have known a man in Christ, fourteen years ago -- whether in the body I have not known, whether out of the body I have not known, God hath known -- such an one being caught away unto the third heaven;
3. and I have known such a man -- whether in the body, whether out of the body, I have not known, God hath known, --
4. that he was caught away to the paradise, and heard unutterable sayings, that it is not possible for man to speak.
5. Of such an one I will boast, and of myself I will not boast, except in my infirmities,
6. for if I may wish to boast, I shall not be a fool, for truth I will say; but I forebear, lest any one in regard to me may think anything above what he doth see me, or doth hear anything of me;
7. and that by the exceeding greatness of the revelations I might not be exalted overmuch, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, a messenger of the Adversary, that he might buffet me, that I might not be exalted overmuch.
8. Concerning this thing thrice the Lord did I call upon, that it might depart from me,
9. and He said to me, `Sufficient for thee is My grace, for My power in infirmity is perfected;` most gladly, therefore, will I rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of the Christ may rest on me:
10. wherefore I am well pleased in infirmities, in damages, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses -- for Christ; for whenever I am infirm, then I am powerful;
11. I have become a fool -- boasting; ye -- ye did compel me; for I ought by you to have been commended, for in nothing was I behind the very chiefest apostles -- even if I am nothing.
12. The signs, indeed, of the apostle were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds,
13. for what is there in which ye were inferior to the rest of the assemblies, except that I myself was not a burden to you? forgive me this injustice!
14. Lo, a third time I am ready to come unto you, and I will not be a burden to you, for I seek not yours, but you, for the children ought not for the parents to lay up, but the parents for the children,
15. and I most gladly will spend and be entirely spent for your souls, even if, more abundantly loving you, less I am loved.
16. And be it [so], I -- I did not burden you, but being crafty, with guile I did take you;
17. any one of those whom I have sent unto you -- by him did I take advantage of you?
18. I entreated Titus, and did send with [him] the brother; did Titus take advantage of you? in the same spirit did we not walk? -- did we not in the same steps?
19. Again, think ye that to you we are making defence? before God in Christ do we speak; and the all things, beloved, [are] for your up-building,
20. for I fear lest, having come, not such as I wish I may find you, and I -- I may be found by you such as ye do not wish, lest there be strifes, envyings, wraths, revelries, evil-speakings, whisperings, puffings up, insurrections,
21. lest again having come, my God may humble me in regard to you, and I may bewail many of those having sinned before, and not having reformed concerning the uncleanness, and whoredom, and lasciviousness, that they did practise.
