With an airon
With the point of an adamant it is engraved
On the tablet of their bheart
And on the horns of your altars,
their children remember
Their altars and their 1Asherahs
Beside flourishing trees
Upon high hills.
My mountain in the field,
Your wealth and all your treasures
I will give as plunder,
Your high places, because of sin,
Within all your borders.
will let go of your inheritance,
Which I gave to you;
And I will cause you to serve your enemies
In a land which you do not know;
For you have kindled a fire in My anger,
Which will burn forever.
Cursed is the man who trusts in man
And makes flesh his arm
And whose heart turns away from Jehovah.
he will be like a shrub in the desert
And will not see when good comes;
But he will dwell in the parched places in the wilderness,
A land of salt and uninhabited.

And whose trust Jehovah is.

Which sends out its roots by a stream,
And will not be afraid when heat comes;
For its leaves remain flourishing,
And it will not be anxious in the year of drought
And will not cease to bear fruit.

A man makes riches but not rightly;
In the midst of his days they will leave him,
And at his end he will be a fool.

All who forsake You will be put to shame.

Was before Your face.

those who persecute me be put to shame, but as for me, do not let me be put to shame;
Let them be dismayed, but do not let me be dismayed.

said Jehovah to me, Go and stand in the gate of the sons of the people, through which the kings of Judah come in and through which they go out, and in all the gates of Jerusalem,
say to them, Hear the word of Jehovah, O kings of Judah and all Judah and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem who enter through these gates:
says Jehovah, Take heed to your souls and bear no burden on the 1aSabbath
day, nor bring anything
through the gates of Jerusalem.
do not bring out any burden from your houses on the Sabbath day, nor do any work; but sanctify the Sabbath day, as I commanded your fathers.
they did not listen or incline their ear; rather they stiffened their neck that they might not hear or receive correction.
if indeed you listen to Me, declares Jehovah, and bring no burden through the gates of this city on the Sabbath day, but sanctify the Sabbath day and do not do any work on it,
kings and princes who sit on the throne of David, riding on chariots and on horses, they and their princes, the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, will come through the gates of this city; and this city will be inhabited forever.
they will come from the cities of Judah and the places surrounding Jerusalem and from the land of Benjamin and from the lowland and from the hill country and from the 1Negev
, bringing burnt offerings and sacrifices and meal offerings and frankincense and bringing thanksgiving to the house of Jehovah.
if you do not listen to Me to sanctify the Sabbath day and not to bear a burden when coming in through the gates of Jerusalem on the Sabbath day, then I will kindle a fire in its gates, and it will devour the palaces of Jerusalem and will not be extinguished.
