Isaiah 66:14–24

Yahweh’s Final Judgment

14 And you shall see and your heart shall rejoice,

and your bones shall flourishn like the grass,

and the hand of Yahweh shall make itself known too his servants,

and he shall curse his enemies.

15 For look! Yahweh will come in fire,

and his chariots like the storm wind,

to give backp his anger in wrath,

and his rebuke in flames of fire.

16 For Yahweh enters into judgment on all flesh with fire and his sword,

and those slain byq Yahweh shall be many.

17 Those who sanctify themselves

and those who cleanse themselves to go intor the gardens after the one in the middle,

eating the flesh of swine

and detestable thingss and rodentst together

shall come to an end!” declaresu Yahweh.

18 “And I—their works and thoughts!—am about to come to gather all nations and tongues,

and they shall come and see my glory.

19 And I will set a sign among them,

and I will send survivors from them to the nations:

Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, who draw the bow;

Tubal and Javan, the faraway coastlands

that have not heard of my fame,

and have not seen my glory.

And they shall declare my glory among the nations, 20 and bring all your countrymenv from all the nations as an offering to Yahweh on horses and chariotsw and in litters and on mules and camels, tox my holy mountain,y Jerusalem,” says Yahweh, “just as the sons of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel to the house of Yahweh. 21 And indeed, I will take some of them as priests and the Levites,” says Yahweh. 22 “For just as the new heavens and earth that I am about to make shall stand before me,” declaresz Yahweh, “so shall your descendantsa and your name stand.

23 And this shall happen: From new moon to new moonb and from Sabbath to Sabbathc all flesh shall come to bow in worship before me,” says Yahweh. 24 “And they shall go out and look at the corpses of the peopled who have rebellede against me,

for their worm shall not die,

and their fire shall not be quenched,

and they shall be an abhorrence to all flesh.”
