Where is the house that ye build unto me?
And where is the place of my rest?
2 For call those things hath mine hand made,
And all those things have been, saith the Lord:
But dto this man will I look,
Even to him that is poor and eof a contrite spirit,
And ftrembleth at my word.
3 gHe that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man;
He that offereth an oblation, kas if he offered swine’s blood;
He that †burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol.
Yea, they have chosen ltheir own ways,
And their soul delighteth in their abominations.
And will bring their fears upon them;
nBecause when I called, none did answer;
nWhen I spake, they did not hear:
nBut they did evil before mine eyes,
nAnd chose that in which I delighted not.
5 Hear the word of the Lord, ye that ftremble at his word;
Your brethren othat hated you,
That pcast you out for my name’s sake, said,
qLet the Lord be glorified:
6 A voice of tnoise from the city, a voice from the temple,
A voice of the Lord that rendereth recompence to his enemies.
7 Before she utravailed, she brought forth;
Before her upain came, she was delivered of a man child.
Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day?
Or shall a nation be born at once?
For as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.
9 Shall I bring to the birth, and not ||cause to bring forth? saith the Lord:
10 xRejoice ye with Jerusalem, and be glad with her, all ye that love her:
Behold, I will extend cpeace to her like a river,
And ye shall be comforted kin Jerusalem.
14 And when ye see this, myour heart shall rejoice,
And the hand of the Lord shall be known toward his servants,
And his indignation toward his enemies.
15 For, behold, pthe Lord will come with fire,
To render his anger swith fury,
And his rebuke with flames of fire.
17 They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves xin the gardens
Shall be bconsumed together, saith the Lord.
18 For I know their works and ctheir thoughts:
It shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues;
And dthey shall come, and see my glory.
19 And I will set ea sign among them,
And I will send fthose that escape of them unto the nations,
That have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory;
And lthey shall declare my glory among the Gentiles.
To my holy mountain Jerusalem, saith the Lord,
As the children of Israel bring an offering
In a clean vessel into the house of the Lord.
21 And I will also take of them for qpriests and for Levites, saith the Lord.
22 For as rthe new heavens and the new earth, which I will make,
Shall remain before me, saith the Lord,
So sshall your seed and your name remain.
And from one sabbath to another,
Upon vthe carcases of the men that have transgressed against me:
And they shall be zan abhorring unto all flesh.
