1Woe to the rebellious children, says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my Spirit, that they may add sin to sin:
2That walk to go down into Mitzrayim [Egypt - The Narrow Place], and have not asked at my mouth; to strengthen themselves in the strength of Par’oh [Pharaoh - Great House], and to trust in the shadow of Mitzrayim [Egypt - The Narrow Place]!
3Therefore shall the strength of Par’oh [Pharaoh - Great House] be your shame, and the trust in the shadow of Mitzrayim [Egypt - The Narrow Place] [your] confusion.
4For his princes were at Tzo’an [Place of Departure], and his ambassadors came to Hanes.
5They were all ashamed of a people [that] could not profit them, nor be an help nor profit, but a shame, and also a reproach (disgrace; shame).
6The burden of the beasts of the south: into the land of trouble and anguish, from what place [come] the young and old lion, the viper and fiery flying serpent, they will carry their riches upon the shoulders of young asses, and their treasures upon the bunches of camels (camel’s humps), to a people [that] shall not profit [them].
7For the Mitzri shall help in vain, and to no purpose: therefore have I cried concerning this, Their strength [is] to sit still.
8Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come forever and ever:
9That this [is] a rebellious people, lying children, children [that] will not hear the law of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate):
10Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:
11Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] to cease from before us.
12For what reason thus says the Holy One of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], Because you2f despise this word, and trust in oppression and perverseness, and stay thereon:
13Therefore this iniquity shall be to you as a breach (breaking forth; a break; opening, inlet) ready to fall, swelling out in a high wall, whose breaking comes suddenly at an instant.
14And he shall break it as the breaking of the potters’ vessel that is broken in pieces; he shall not spare: so that there shall not be found in the bursting of it a shard to take fire from the hearth, or to take water [withal] out of the pit.
15For thus says the Lord-Adonai [Greatest Above All Things] GOD-Yehōvih (THE FATHER), the Holy One of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]; In returning and rest shall you2f be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and you2f would not.
16But you2f said, No; for we will flee upon horses; therefore shall you2f flee: and, We will ride upon the swift; therefore shall they that pursue you be swift.
17One thousand [shall flee] at the rebuke (reprimand; strongly warn; restrain) of one; at the rebuke (reprimand; strongly warn; restrain) of five shall you2f flee: till you2f be left as a beacon upon the top of a mountain, and as an flag (or banner; as of an army) on an hill.
18And therefore will the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) [is] a God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] of judgment: Blessed (Favored by God; happy; prosperous) [are] all they that wait for him.
19For the people shall dwell in Tziyon [parched place] at Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace]: youi shall weep no more: he will be very gracious unto youi at the voice of youi cry; when he shall hear it, he will answer youi.
20And [though] the Lord-Adonai (The Father) [Greatest Above All Things] give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not youri teachers be removed into a corner any more, but youri eyes shall see youri teachers:
21And youri ears shall hear a word behind youi, saying, This [is] the way, walk you2f in it, when you2f turn to the right hand, and when you2f turn to the left.
22You2f shall defile also the covering of youri graven images of silver, and the ornament of youri molten images of gold: youi shall cast them away as a monstrous cloth; youi shall say unto it, Get youi hence.
23Then shall he give the rain of youi seed, that youi shall sow the ground withal; and bread of the increase of the earth, and it shall be fat and plenteous: in that day shall youri cattle feed in large pastures.
24The oxen likewise and the young asses that ear the ground shall eat clean provender (food for livestock or cattle), which has been winnowed with the shovel and with the fan (a fork-shaped tool to throw grain in the air, to let he wind separate the wheat from the chaff).
25And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers [and] streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall.
26Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) binds up the breach (breaking forth; a break; opening, inlet) of his people, and heals the stroke of their wound.
27Behold, the name of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) comes from far, burning [with] his anger, and the burden [thereof is] heavy: his lips are full of indignation, and his tongue as a devouring fire:
28And his breath, as an overflowing stream, shall reach to the midst of the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of vanity: and [there shall be] a bridle in the jaws of the people, causing [them] to err.
29You2f shall have a song, as in the night [when] a holy solemnity is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goes with a pipe to come into the mountain of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), to the mighty One of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God].
30And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) shall cause his glorious voice to be heard, and shall show the lighting down of his arm, with the indignation of [his] anger, and [with] the flame of a devouring fire, [with] scattering, and tempest, and hailstones.
31For through the Voice of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) shall the Ashur (Assyrian) be beaten down, [which] struck with a rod.
32And [in] every place where the grounded staff shall pass, which the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) shall lay upon him, [it] shall be with tambourines and harps: and in battles of shaking will he fight with it.
33For Tofet [place of fire] [is] ordained of old; yes, for the king it is prepared; he has made [it] deep [and] large: the pile thereof [is] fire and much wood; the breath of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), like a stream of sulfur, does kindle it.
