The plague of the fifth sign — the Lord standing upon the altar, signifying that the Lord is ready to destroy Israel
the Lord 1standing
upon the altar. And He said,
Strike the capitals of the pillars
That the thresholds may shake.
And break them off upon the heads of them all,
And the last of them I will slay with the sword:
Any one of them who flees will not flee away,
And any one of them who escapes will not slip by.
they dig into 1Sheol
From there My hand will take them;
And though they go up into bheaven
From there I will bring them down.
And though they hide at the top of Carmel,
From there I will seek them
and take them.
And though they hide themselves from My sight on the floor of the sea,
There I will command the serpent, and it will bite them.
And though they go into captivity before their enemies,
There I will command the sword, and it will slay them;
And I will set My eyes upon them
For evil and not for good.
For the Lord Jehovah of hosts
Is the One who touches the land and it melts,
And all those who dwell in it mourn;
And all of it arises
like the 1River
And it sinks like the river of Egypt.
the One who builds His aupper
stories in the heavens
And has founded His vault over the earth; He is
the One who calls for the bwater
of the sea
And pours it upon the surface of the earth;
Jehovah is His name.
Are you not like the children of the 1Cushites
To Me, O children of Israel?
Have I not brought up Israel
Out from the land of Egypt,
And the Philistines out from 2Caphtor
out from Kir?
Yes, the eyes of the Lord Jehovah
Are on the sinful kingdom,
And I will destroy it
From off the face of the earth,
Except that I will anot 1utterly
destroy the house of Jacob,
For I will command
the house of Israel among all the nations,
is shaken in the sieve;
Yet a kernel will not fall to the ground.
All the sinners of My people
Will die by the sword,
Those who say, Evil will not overtake us
Nor come before us on all sides.
The restoration of the house of Israel, with the rebuilding of the fallen tabernacle of David for the kingdom of Christ
that day I will raise up
The fallen 1btabernacle
And I will wall up its breaches
And raise up its ruins
And build it up as it was
in the days of old;
That they may possess the aremnant
of Edom and all the nations which are called by My name, declares Jehovah who does this.
Indeed days are coming,
When the plowman will overtake the reaper,
And the grape treader, him who sows the seed;
And the mountains will drip sweet awine
And all the hills will melt.
And I will aturn
the captivity of My people Israel,
And they will build the bdesolated
cities and inhabit them
And they will plant vineyards and drink the wine from them,
And make gardens and eat the fruit from them.
And I will aplant
them upon their land, and they will bnot
be plucked up again from their land, which I have given to them, says Jehovah your God.
