Day 220

The 297 Day Bible – Day 220 [text]
Christ in the Prophets
Jeremiah Chapter 39

1 in the ninth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the tenth month, came Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon and all his army against Jerusalem, and besieged it;

2 in the eleventh year of Zedekiah, in the fourth month, the ninth day of the month, a breach was made in the city–

3 that all the princes of the king of Babylon came in, and sat in the middle gate, even Nergal-sarezer, Samgar-nebo, Sarsechim Rab-saris, Nergal-sarezer Rab-mag, with all the residue of the princes of the king of Babylon.

4 And it came to pass, that when Zedekiah the king of Judah and all the men of war saw them, then they fled, and went forth out of the city by night, by the way of the king’s garden, by the gate betwixt the two walls; and he went out the way of the Arabah.

5 But the army of the Chaldeans pursued after them, and overtook Zedekiah in the plains of Jericho; and when they had taken him, they brought him up to Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon to Riblah in the land of Hamath, and he gave judgment upon him.

6 Then the king of Babylon slew the sons of Zedekiah in Riblah before his eyes; also the king of Babylon slew all the nobles of Judah.

7 Moreover he put out Zedekiah’s eyes, and bound him in fetters, to carry him to Babylon.

8 And the Chaldeans burned the king’s house, and the house of the people, with fire, and broke down the walls of Jerusalem.

9 Then Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard carried away captive into Babylon the remnant of the people that remained in the city, the deserters also, that fell away to him, with the rest of the people that remained.

10 But Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard left of the poor of the people, that had nothing, in the land of Judah, and gave them vineyards and fields in that day.

11 Now Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon gave charge concerning Jeremiah to Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard, saying:

12 ‘Take him, and look well to him, and do him no harm; but do unto him even as he shall say unto thee.’

13 So Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard sent, and Nebushazban Rab-saris, and Nergal-sarezer Rab-mag, and all the chief officers of the king of Babylon;

14 they sent, and took Jeremiah out of the court of the guard, and committed him unto Gedaliah the son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, that he should carry him home; so he dwelt among the people. {S}

15 Now the word of the LORD came unto Jeremiah, while he was shut up in the court of the guard, saying:

16 ‘Go, and speak to Ebed-melech the Ethiopian, saying:
Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel:
Behold, I will bring My words upon this city for evil, and not for good; and they shall be accomplished before thee in that day.

17 But I will deliver thee in that day, saith the LORD; and thou shalt not be given into the hand of the men of whom thou art afraid.

18 For I will surely deliver thee, and thou shalt not fall by the sword, but thy life shall be for a prey unto thee; because thou hast put thy trust in Me, saith the LORD.’ {P}

Jeremiah Chapter 40

1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, after that Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard had let him go from Ramah, when he had taken him being bound in chains among all the captives of Jerusalem and Judah, that were carried away captive unto Babylon.

2 And the captain of the guard took Jeremiah, and said unto him:
‘The LORD thy God pronounced this evil upon this place;

3 and the LORD hath brought it, and done according as He spoke; because ye have sinned against the LORD, and have not hearkened to His voice, therefore this thing is come upon you.

4 And now, behold, I loose thee this day from the chains which are upon thy hand. If it seem good unto thee to come with me into Babylon, come, and I will look well unto thee; but if it seem ill unto thee to come with me into Babylon, forbear; behold, all the land is before thee; whither it seemeth good and right unto thee to go, thither go.–

5 Yet he would not go back.–
Go back then to Gedaliah the son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, whom the king of Babylon hath made governor over the cities of Judah, and dwell with him among the people; or go wheresoever it seemeth right unto thee to go.’
So the captain of the guard gave him an allowance and a present, and let him go.

6 Then went Jeremiah unto Gedaliah the son of Ahikam to Mizpah, and dwelt with him among the people that were left in the land. {P}

7 Now when all the captains of the forces that were in the fields, even they and their men, heard that the king of Babylon had made Gedaliah the son of Ahikam governor in the land, and had committed unto him men, and women, and children, and of the poorest of the land, of them that were not carried away captive to Babylon;

8 then they came to Gedaliah to Mizpah, even Ishmael the son of Nethaniah, and Johanan and Jonathan the sons of Kareah, and Seraiah the son of Tanhumeth, and the sons of Ephai the Netophathite, and Jezaniah the son of the Maacathite, they and their men.

9 And Gedaliah the son of Ahikam the son of Shaphan swore unto them and to their men, saying:
‘Fear not to serve the Chaldeans; dwell in the land, and serve the king of Babylon, and it shall be well with you.

10 As for me, behold, I will dwell at Mizpah, to stand before the Chaldeans that may come unto us; but ye, gather ye wine and summer fruits and oil, and put them in your vessels, and dwell in your cities that ye have taken.’

11 Likewise when all the Jews that were in Moab, and among the children of Ammon, and in Edom, and that were in all the countries, heard that the king of Babylon had left a remnant of Judah, and that he had set over them Gedaliah the son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan;

12 then all the Jews returned out of all places whither they were driven, and came to the land of Judah, to Gedaliah, unto Mizpah, and gathered wine and summer fruits in great abundance. {S}

13 Moreover Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the captains of the forces that were in the fields, came to Gedaliah to Mizpah,

14 and said unto him:
‘Dost thou know that Baalis the king of the children of Ammon hath sent Ishmael the son of Nethaniah to take thy life?’
But Gedaliah the son of Ahikam believed them not.

15 Then Johanan the son of Kareah spoke to Gedaliah in Mizpah secretly, saying:
‘Let me go, I pray thee, and I will slay Ishmael the son of Nethaniah, and no man shall know it; wherefore should he take thy life, that all the Jews that are gathered unto thee should be scattered, and the remnant of Judah perish?’

16 But Gedaliah the son of Ahikam said unto Johanan the son of Kareah:
‘Thou shalt not do this thing; for thou speakest falsely of Ishmael.’ {P}

Christ in the Writings
Job Chapter 40

1 {S} Moreover the LORD answered Job, and said:

2 Shall he that reproveth contend with the Almighty? He that argueth with God, let him answer it. {P}

3 {S} Then Job answered the LORD, and said:

4 Behold, I am of small account; what shall I answer Thee? I lay my hand upon my mouth.

5 Once have I spoken, but I will not answer again; yea, twice, but I will proceed no further. {P}

6 Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said:

7 Gird up thy loins now like a man; I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto Me.

8 Wilt thou even make void My judgment? Wilt thou condemn Me, that thou mayest be justified?

9 Or hast thou an arm like God? And canst thou thunder with a voice like Him?

10 Deck thyself now with majesty and excellency, and array thyself with glory and beauty.

11 Cast abroad the rage of thy wrath; and look upon every one that is proud, and abase him.

12 Look on every one that is proud, and bring him low; and tread down the wicked in their place.

13 Hide them in the dust together; bind their faces in the hidden place.

14 Then will I also confess unto thee that thine own right hand can save thee.

15 Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox.

16 Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the stays of his body.

17 He straineth his tail like a cedar; the sinews of his thighs are knit together.

18 His bones are as pipes of brass; his gristles are like bars of iron.

19 He is the beginning of the ways of God; He only that made him can make His sword to approach unto him.

20 Surely the mountains bring him forth food, and all the beasts of the field play there.

21 He lieth under the lotus-trees, in the covert of the reed, and fens.

22 The lotus-trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook compass him about.

23 Behold, if a river overflow, he trembleth not; he is confident, though the Jordan rush forth to his mouth.

24 Shall any take him by his eyes, or pierce through his nose with a snare?

25 Canst thou draw out leviathan with a fish-hook? or press down his tongue with a cord?

26 Canst thou put a ring into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a hook?

27 Will he make many supplications unto thee? or will he speak soft words unto thee?

28 Will he make a covenant with thee, that thou shouldest take him for a servant for ever?

29 Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? Or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens?

30 Will the bands of fishermen make a banquet of him? Will they part him among the merchants?

31 Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons? or his head with fish-spears?

32 Lay thy hand upon him; think upon the battle, thou wilt do so no more.

Christ in the Witnesses
The Epistle of Paul to the Philippians – Chapter 3
܀ ܕܠܘܬ ܦܝܠܝܦܣܝ̈ܐ ܀

1 Finally, my brethren, rejoice in our Lord. To write these [things] again and again to you, is not irksome to me, because they make you cautious.

2 Beware of dogs; beware of evil doers; beware of the clipped in flesh.

3 For we are the [real] circumcision, who worship God in spirit, and glory in Jesus the Messiah, and place no reliance on the flesh.

4 And yet I might place reliance on the flesh. For, if any one thinketh that his reliance should be on the flesh, I might [do so] more than he.

5 Circumcised when eight days old; of the stock of Israel; of the tribe of Benjamin; a Hebrew, descendant of Hebrews; as to the law, a Pharisee;

6 as to zeal, a persecutor of the church; and as to the righteousness of the law, I was without fault.

7 But these things, which had been my excellence, I have accounted a detriment, because of the Messiah.

8 And now also I account them all a detriment, because of the excellency of the knowledge of Jesus the Messiah my Lord; for the sake of whom, I have parted with all things, and have accounted [them] as dung, that I might gain the Messiah,

9 and be found in him; since my righteousness is not [now] that from the law, but that which is from faith in the Messiah, that is, the righteousness which is from God;

10 that thereby I might know Jesus, and the efficacy of his resurrection; and might participate in his sufferings, and be assimilated to his death:

11 if so be, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.

12 Not as though I had already taken [the prize], or were already complete; but I run [in the race], if so I may take that, for which Jesus the Messiah took me.
13 My brethren, I do not consider myself, as having taken [it]. But one thing I know, that I forget the things behind me, and reach for the things before me;

14 and I run straight for the goal, that I may obtain the [prize] of victory of the call of God from on high, by Jesus the Messiah.

15 Therefore let those who are perfect, have these views; and if ye differently view any thing, God will reveal that also to you.

16 Nevertheless, that we may attain to this, let us proceed on in one path, and with one consent.

17 Be like me, my brethren; and contemplate them, who walk after the pattern ye have seen in us.

18 For there are many who walk otherwise; of whom I have often told you, and I now tell you, with weeping, that they are adversaries of the cross of the Messiah;

19 whose end is destruction; whose god is their belly, and their glory their shame; whose thoughts are on things of the earth.

20 But our concern is with heaven; and from thence we expect our Vivifier, our Lord, Jesus the Messiah;

21 who will change the body of our abasement, that it may have the likeness of the body of his glory, according to his great power, whereby all things are made subject to him.

I have loved you, JESUSbible II


1,1 The burden of the word of the LORD to Israel by Malachi.

1,2 I have loved you, saith the LORD. Yet ye say:
‘Wherein hast Thou loved us?’
Was not Esau Jacob’s brother? saith the LORD; yet I loved* Jacob;

1,3 But Esau I hated, and made his mountains a desolation, and gave his heritage to the jackals of the wilderness.

1,4 Whereas Edom saith:
‘We are beaten down, but we will return and build the waste places’;
thus saith the LORD of hosts:
They shall build, but I will throw down; and they shall be called the border of wickedness, and the people whom the LORD execrateth for ever.

1,5 And your eyes shall see, and ye shall say:
‘The LORD is great beyond the border of Israel.’

1,6 A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master; if then I be a father, where is My honour? and if I be a master, where is My fear? saith the LORD of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise My name. And ye say:
‘Wherein have we despised Thy name?’

1,7 Ye offer polluted bread upon Mine altar. And ye say:
‘Wherein have we polluted thee?’
In that ye say:
‘The table of the LORD is contemptible.’

1,8 And when ye offer the blind for sacrifice, is it no evil! And when ye offer the lame and sick, is it no evil! Present it now unto thy governor; will he be pleased with thee? or will he accept thy person? saith the LORD of hosts.

1,9 And now, I pray you, entreat the favour of God that He may be gracious unto us!–
this hath been of your doing.–
will He accept any of your persons? saith the LORD of hosts.

1,10 Oh that there were even one among you that would shut the doors, that ye might not kindle fire on Mine altar in vain! I have no pleasure in you, saith the LORD of hosts, neither will I accept an offering at your hand.

1,11 For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same My name is great among the nations; and in every place offerings are presented unto My name, even pure oblations; for My name is great among the nations, saith the LORD of hosts.

1,12 But ye profane it, in that ye say:
‘The table of the LORD is polluted, and the fruit thereof, even the food thereof, is contemptible.’

1,13 Ye say also:
‘Behold, what a weariness is it!’
and ye have snuffed at it, saith the LORD of hosts; and ye have brought that which was taken by violence, and the lame, and the sick; thus ye bring the offering; should I accept this of your hand? saith the LORD. {S}

1,14 But cursed be he that dealeth craftily, whereas he hath in his flock a male, and voweth, and sacrificeth unto the Lord a blemished thing; for I am a great King, saith the LORD of hosts, and My name is feared among the nations.

2,1 And now, this commandment is for you, O ye priests.

2,2 If ye will not hearken, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto My name, saith the LORD of hosts, then will I send the curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings; yea, I curse them, because ye do not lay it to heart.

2,3 Behold, I will rebuke the seed for your hurt, and will spread dung upon your faces, even the dung of your sacrifices; and ye shall be taken away unto it.

2,4 Know then that I have sent this commandment unto you, that My covenant might be with Levi, saith the LORD of hosts.

2,5 My covenant was with him of life and peace, and I gave them to him, and of fear, and he feared Me, and was afraid of My name.

2,6 The law of truth was in his mouth, and unrighteousness was not found in his lips; he walked with Me in peace and uprightness, and did turn many away from iniquity.

2,7 For the priest’s lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth; for he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts.

2,8 But ye are turned aside out of the way; ye have caused many to stumble in the law; ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi, saith the LORD of hosts.

2,9 Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as ye have not kept My ways, but have had respect of persons in the law. {P}

2,10 Have we not all one father? Hath not one God created us? Why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, profaning the covenant of our fathers?

2,11 Judah hath dealt treacherously, and an abomination is committed in Israel and in Jerusalem; for Judah hath profaned the holiness of the LORD which He loveth, and hath married the daughter of a strange god.

2,12 May the LORD cut off to the man that doeth this, him that calleth and him that answereth out of the tents of Jacob, and him that offereth an offering unto the LORD of hosts. {P}

2,13 And this further ye do:
ye cover the altar of the LORD with tears, with weeping, and with sighing, insomuch that He regardeth not the offering any more, neither receiveth it with good will at your hand.

2,14 Yet ye say:
Because the LORD hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously, though she is thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant.

2,15 And not one hath done so who had exuberance of spirit! For what seeketh the one? a seed given of God. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth.

2,16 For I hate putting away, saith the LORD, the God of Israel, and him that covereth his garment with violence, saith the LORD of hosts; therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously. {P}

2,17 Ye have wearied the LORD with your words. Yet ye say:
‘Wherein have we wearied Him?’
In that ye say:
‘Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the LORD, and He delighteth in them; or where is the God of justice?’

*n. GOD defines ‘love’ as a choice, and act of the will – humanly speaking. Humanly the word implies preference – specifically over his brother Esau. Other passages translate the preference over Esau as ‘hate’.

n. This will be the final book in JESUSbible II – the addition of Scripture that JESUS referred to as The Prophets.

Shabbat Shalom

Day 219

The 297 Day Bible – Day 219
Christ in the Prophets
Jeremiah Chapter 37

1 And Zedekiah the son of Josiah reigned as king, instead of Coniah the son of Jehoiakim, whom Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon made king in the land of Judah.

2 But neither he, nor his servants, nor the people of the land, did hearken unto the words of the LORD, which He spoke by the prophet Jeremiah.

3 And Zedekiah the king sent Jehucal the son of Shelemiah, and Zephaniah the son of Maaseiah the priest, to the prophet Jeremiah, saying:
‘Pray now unto the LORD our God for us.’

4 Now Jeremiah came in and went out among the people; for they had not put him into prison.

5 And Pharaoh’s army was come forth out of Egypt; and when the Chaldeans that besieged Jerusalem heard tidings of them, they broke up from Jerusalem. {P}

6 Then came the word of the LORD unto the prophet Jeremiah, saying:

7 ‘Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel:
Thus shall ye say to the king of Judah, that sent you unto Me to inquire of Me:
Behold, Pharaoh’s army, which is come forth to help you, shall return to Egypt into their own land.

8 And the Chaldeans shall return, and fight against this city; and they shall take it, and burn it with fire. {P}

9 Thus saith the LORD:
Deceive not yourselves, saying:
The Chaldeans shall surely depart from us; for they shall not depart.

10 For though ye had smitten the whole army of the Chaldeans that fight against you, and there remained but wounded men among them, yet would they rise up every man in his tent, and burn this city with fire.’

11 And it came to pass, that when the army of the Chaldeans was broken up from Jerusalem for fear of Pharaoh’s army, {S}

12 then Jeremiah went forth out of Jerusalem to go into the land of Benjamin, to receive his portion there, in the midst of the people.

13 And when he was in the gate of Benjamin, a captain of the ward was there, whose name was Irijah, the son of Shelemiah, the son of Hananiah; and he laid hold on Jeremiah the prophet, saying:
‘Thou fallest away to the Chaldeans.’

14 Then said Jeremiah:
‘It is false; I fall not away to the Chaldeans’;
but he hearkened not to him; so Irijah laid hold on Jeremiah, and brought him to the princes.

15 And the princes were wroth with Jeremiah, and smote him, and put him in prison in the house of Jonathan the scribe; for they had made that the prison.

16 When Jeremiah was come into the dungeon-house, and into the cells, and Jeremiah had remained there many days;

17 then Zedekiah the king sent, and fetched him; and the king asked him secretly in his house, and said:
‘Is there any word from the LORD?’
And Jeremiah said:
‘There is.’
He said also:
‘Thou shalt be delivered into the hand of the king of Babylon.’

18 Moreover Jeremiah said unto king Zedekiah:
‘Wherein have I sinned against thee, or against thy servants, or against this people, that ye have put me in prison?

19 Where now are your prophets that prophesied unto you, saying:
The king of Babylon shall not come against you, nor against this land?

20 And now hear, I pray thee, O my lord the king:
let my supplication, I pray thee, be presented before thee; that thou cause me not to return to the house of Jonathan the scribe, lest I die there.’

21 Then Zedekiah the king commanded, and they committed Jeremiah into the court of the guard, and they gave him daily a loaf of bread out of the bakers’ street, until all the bread in the city was spent. Thus Jeremiah remained in the court of the guard.

Jeremiah Chapter 38

1 And Shephatiah the son of Mattan, and Gedaliah the son of Pashhur, and Jucal the son of Shelemiah, and Pashhur the son of Malchiah, heard the words that Jeremiah spoke unto all the people, saying:

2 ‘Thus saith the LORD:
He that remaineth in this city shall die by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence; but he that goeth forth to the Chaldeans shall live, and his life shall be unto him for a prey, and he shall live. {S}

3 Thus saith the LORD:
This city shall surely be given into the hand of the army of the king of Babylon, and he shall take it.’

4 Then the princes said unto the king:
‘Let this man, we pray thee, be put to death; forasmuch as he weakeneth the hands of the men of war that remain in this city, and the hands of all the people, in speaking such words unto them; for this man seeketh not the welfare of this people, but the hurt.’

5 Then Zedekiah the king said:
‘Behold, he is in your hand; for the king is not he that can do any thing against you.’

6 Then took they Jeremiah, and cast him into the pit of Malchiah the king’s son, that was in the court of the guard; and they let down Jeremiah with cords. And in the pit there was no water, but mire; and Jeremiah sank in the mire. {S}

7 Now when Ebed-melech the Ethiopian, an officer, who was in the king’s house, heard that they had put Jeremiah in the pit; the king then sitting in the gate of Benjamin;

8 Ebed-melech went forth out of the king’s house, and spoke to the king, saying:

9 ‘My lord the king, these men have done evil in all that they have done to Jeremiah the prophet, whom they have cast into the pit; and he is like to die in the place where he is because of the famine; for there is no more bread in the city.’

10 Then the king commanded Ebed-melech the Ethiopian, saying:
‘Take from hence thirty men with thee, and take up Jeremiah the prophet out of the pit, before he die.’

11 So Ebed-melech took the men with him, and went into the house of the king under the treasury, and took thence worn clouts and worn rags, and let them down by cords into the pit to Jeremiah.

12 And Ebed-melech the Ethiopian said unto Jeremiah:
‘Put now these worn clouts and rags under thine armholes under the cords.’
And Jeremiah did so.

13 So they drew up Jeremiah with the cords, and took him up out of the pit; and Jeremiah remained in the court of the guard. {S}

14 Then Zedekiah the king sent, and took Jeremiah the prophet unto him into the third entry that was in the house of the LORD; and the king said unto Jeremiah: ‘I will ask thee a thing; hide nothing from me.’

15 Then Jeremiah said unto Zedekiah:
‘If I declare it unto thee, wilt thou not surely put me to death? and if I give thee counsel, thou wilt not hearken unto me.’

16 So Zedekiah the king swore secretly unto Jeremiah, saying:
‘As the LORD liveth, that made us this soul, I will not put thee to death, neither will I give thee into the hand of these men that seek thy life.’ {S}

17 Then said Jeremiah unto Zedekiah: {S}
‘Thus saith the LORD, the God of hosts, the God of Israel: If thou wilt go forth unto the king of Babylon’s princes, then thy soul shall live, and this city shall not be burned with fire; and thou shalt live, thou, and thy house;

18 but if thou wilt not go forth to the king of Babylon’s princes, then shall this city be given into the hand of the Chaldeans, and they shall burn it with fire, and thou shalt not escape out of their hand.’ {S}

19 And Zedekiah the king said unto Jeremiah:
‘I am afraid of the Jews that are fallen away to the Chaldeans, lest they deliver me into their hand, and they mock me.’

20 But Jeremiah said:
‘They shall not deliver thee. Hearken, I beseech thee, to the voice of the LORD, in that which I speak unto thee; so it shall be well with thee, and thy soul shall live.

21 But if thou refuse to go forth, this is the word that the LORD hath shown me:

22 Behold, all the women that are left in the king of Judah’s house shall be brought forth to the king of Babylon’s princes, and those women shall say:
Thy familiar friends have set thee on, and have prevailed over thee; thy feet are sunk in the mire, and they are turned away back.

23 And they shall bring out all thy wives and thy children to the Chaldeans; and thou shalt not escape out of their hand, but shalt be taken by the hand of the king of Babylon; and thou shalt cause this city to be burned with fire.’ {S}

24 Then said Zedekiah unto Jeremiah:
‘Let no man know of these words, and thou shalt not die.

25 But if the princes hear that I have talked with thee, and they come unto thee, and say unto thee:
Declare unto us now what thou hast said unto the king; hide it not from us, and we will not put thee to death; also what the king said unto thee;

26 then thou shalt say unto them:
I presented my supplication before the king, that he would not cause me to return to Jonathan’s house, to die there.’ {P}

27 Then came all the princes unto Jeremiah, and asked him; and he told them according to all these words that the king had commanded. So they left off speaking with him; for the matter was not reported.

28 So Jeremiah abode in the court of the guard until the day that Jerusalem was taken. {S} And it came to pass, when Jerusalem was taken–

Christ in the Writings
Job Chapter 39

1 Knowest thou the time when the wild goats of the rock bring forth? Or canst thou mark when the hinds do calve?

2 Canst thou number the months that they fulfil? Or knowest thou the time when they bring forth?

3 They bow themselves, they bring forth their young, they cast out their fruit.

4 Their young ones wax strong, they grow up in the open field; they go forth, and return not again.

5 Who hath sent out the wild ass free? Or who hath loosed the bands of the wild ass?

6 Whose house I have made the wilderness, and the salt land his dwelling-place.

7 He scorneth the tumult of the city, neither heareth he the shoutings of the driver.

8 The range of the mountains is his pasture, and he searcheth after every green thing.

9 Will the wild-ox be willing to serve thee? Or will he abide by thy crib?

10 Canst thou bind the wild-ox with his band in the furrow? Or will he harrow the valleys after thee?

11 Wilt thou trust him, because his strength is great? Or wilt thou leave thy labour to him?

12 Wilt thou rely on him, that he will bring home thy seed, and gather the corn of thy threshing-floor?

13 The wing of the ostrich beateth joyously; but are her pinions and feathers the kindly stork’s?

14 For she leaveth her eggs on the earth, and warmeth them in dust,

15 And forgetteth that the foot may crush them, or that the wild beast may trample them.

16 She is hardened against her young ones, as if they were not hers; though her labour be in vain, she is without fear;

17 Because God hath deprived her of wisdom, neither hath He imparted to her understanding.

18 When the time cometh, she raiseth her wings on high, and scorneth the horse and his rider. {P}

19 Hast thou given the horse his strength? Hast thou clothed his neck with fierceness?

20 Hast thou made him to leap as a locust? The glory of his snorting is terrible.

21 He paweth in the valley, and rejoiceth in his strength; he goeth out to meet the clash of arms.

22 He mocketh at fear, and is not affrighted; neither turneth he back from the sword.

23 The quiver rattleth upon him, the glittering spear and the javelin.

24 He swalloweth the ground with storm and rage; neither believeth he that it is the voice of the horn.

25 As oft as he heareth the horn he saith:
‘Ha, ha!’
and he smelleth the battle afar off, {N}
the thunder of the captains, and the shouting.

26 Doth the hawk soar by thy wisdom, and stretch her wings toward the south?

27 Doth the vulture mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high?

28 She dwelleth and abideth on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the stronghold.

29 From thence she spieth out the prey; her eyes behold it afar off.

30 Her young ones also suck up blood; and where the slain are, there is she.

Christ in the Witnesses
The Epistle of Paul to the Philippians – Chapter 2
܀ ܕܠܘܬ ܦܝܠܝܦܣܝ̈ܐ ܀

1 If, therefore, ye have consolation in the Messiah, or if a commingling of hearts in love, or if a fellowship of the spirit, or if compassions and sympathies;

2 complete ye my joy, by having one apprehension, and one love, and one soul, and one mind.

3 And do nothing in strife, or in vain glory; but, with lowliness of mind, let each esteem his neighbor as better than himself.

4 And let not each be solicitous [only] for himself, but every one also for his neighbor.

5 And think ye so in yourselves, as Jesus the Messiah also thought;

6 who, as he was in the likeness of God, deemed it no trespass to be the coequal of God;

7 yet divested himself, and assumed the likeness of a servant, and was in the likeness of men, and was found in fashion as a man;

8 and he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

9 Wherefore, also, God hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is more excellent than all names;

10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of [beings] in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth;

11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus the Messiah is the Lord, to the glory of God his Father.

12 Therefore, my beloved, as ye have at all times obeyed, not only when I was near to you, but now when I am far from you, prosecute the work of your life, more abundantly, with fear and with trembling.

13 For God is operating in you, both to purpose, and also to perform that which ye desire.

14 Do all things without murmuring, and without altercation;

15 that ye may be perfect and without blemish, as the sincere children of God, who are resident in a perverse and crooked generation; and that ye may appear among them as luminaries in the world;

16 so that ye may be to them in place of life; for my glory in the day of the Messiah, that I may not have run in vain or toiled for naught.

17 And if I should be made a libation upon the sacrifice and service of your faith, I rejoice and exult with you all.

18 And so also do ye rejoice and exult with me.

19 But I hope in jehovah Jesus, that I shall shortly send Timothy unto you, so that I also may have composure, when informed concerning you.

20 For I have no other one here, who, like my self, will sincerely care for your welfare.

21 For they all seek their own, not the [things] of Jesus the Messiah.

22 But ye know the proof of him, that as a son with his father, so he labored with me in the gospel.

23 Him I hope shortly to send to you, when I shall have seen how [things result] with me.

24 And I trust in my Lord, that I shall shortly come myself to you.

25 But now, a circumstance urged me to send to you Epaphroditus, the brother who is an assistant and laborer with me, but is your legate and minister to my wants.

26 For he longed to see you all, and was anxious, because he knew ye had heard, that he was sick.

27 And indeed he was sick, nigh unto death:
but God had mercy on him:
nor was it on him only, but also on me, that I might not have trouble upon trouble.

28 Promptly, therefore, have I sent him to you; so that when ye see him, ye may again be joyful, and I may have a little breathing.

29 Receive him then in the Lord, with all joy; and hold in honor those who are such.

30 For, because of the Messiah’s work, he came near to death, and little regarded his life, that he might fulfill what you lacked in the ministration to me.

"Give thanks to GOD for He is good for His love is forever."

​my God shall come, JESUSbible II

10-29-15 Zechariah

14,1 Behold, a day of the LORD cometh, when thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.

14,2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, but the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

14,3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when He fighteth in the day of battle.

14,4 And His feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleft in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, so that there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

14,5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azel; yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah; and the LORD ​​
my God shall come, and all the holy ones with Thee.

14,6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that there shall not be light, but heavy clouds and thick;

14,7 And there shall be one day which shall be known as the LORD’S, not day, and not night; but it shall come to pass, that at evening time there shall be light.

14,8 And it shall come to pass in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem:
half of them toward the eastern sea, and half of them toward the western sea; in summer and in winter shall it be.

And the LORD shall be King over all the earth; in that day shall the LORD be One, and His name one.

14,10 All the land shall be turned as the Arabah, from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem; and she shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin’s gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananel unto the king’s winepresses.

14,11 And men shall dwell therein, and there shall be no more extermination; but Jerusalem shall dwell safely. {S}

14,12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the peoples that have warred against Jerusalem:
their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their sockets, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.

14,13 And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour.

14,14 And Judah also shall fight against Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the nations round about shall be gathered together, gold, and silver, and apparel, in great abundance.

14,15 And so shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camel, and of the ass, and of all the beasts that shall be in those camps, as this plague.

14,16 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations that came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.

14,17 And it shall be, that whoso of the families of the earth goeth not up unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, upon them there shall be no rain.

14,18 And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, they shall have no overflow; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the nations that go not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.

14,19 This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all the nations that go not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.

14,20 In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses:
and the pots in the LORD’S house shall be like the basins before the altar.

14,21 Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holy unto the LORD of hosts; and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein; and in that day there shall be no more a trafficker in the house of the LORD of hosts. {P}​​

* only [One] GOD will be left
