13 The Lord shall go forth fas a mighty man,
He shall stir up jealousy like ga man of war:
He shall cry, yea, hroar;
He shall ||prevail against his enemies.
I have been still, and irefrained myself:
Now will I cry klike a travailing woman;
I will destroy and †devour at once.
And dry up all their herbs;
And I will make the rivers aislands,
And I will dry up the pools.
I will lead them in paths that they have not known:
I will make darkness light before them,
And crooked things †straight.
These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.
That say to the molten images, Ye are our gods.
18 nHear, ye deaf;
And olook, ye blind, that ye may see.
Or deaf, as my messenger that I sent?
Who is blind as he that is perfect,
And blind as qthe Lord’s servant?
tOpening the ears, but he heareth not.
||They are all of them snared in holes,
And they are hid in prison houses:
They are vfor a prey, and none delivereth;
Who will hearken and hear †for the time to come?
24 Who gave Jacob for wa spoil, and Israel to the robbers?
Did not the Lord, he against whom we have sinned?
For they would not walk in his ways,
Neither were they obedient unto his law.
25 xTherefore he hath poured upon him the fury of his anger, and the strength of battle:
And it burned him, yet he alaid it not to heart.
