024:015:001
Then said the LORD unto me,
Though Moses and Samuel stood before me,
yet my mind could not be toward this people:
cast them out of my sight,
and let them go forth.


024:015:002
And it shall come to pass,
if they say unto thee,
Whither shall we go forth?
then thou shalt tell them,
Thus saith the LORD;
Such as are for death,
to death;
and such as are for the sword,
to the sword;
and such as are for the famine,
to the famine;
and such as are for the captivity,
to the captivity.


024:015:003
And I will appoint over them four kinds,
saith the LORD:
the sword to slay,
and the dogs to tear,
and the fowls of the heaven,
and the beasts of the earth,
to devour and destroy.


024:015:004
And I will cause them to be removed into all kingdoms of the earth,
because of Manasseh the son of Hezekiah king of Judah,
for that which he did in Jerusalem.


024:015:005
For who shall have pity upon thee,
O Jerusalem?
or who shall bemoan thee?
or who shall go aside to ask how thou doest?


024:015:006
Thou hast forsaken me,
saith the LORD,
thou art gone backward:
therefore will I stretch out my hand against thee,
and destroy thee;
I am weary with repenting.


024:015:007
And I will fan them with a fan in the gates of the land;
I will bereave them of children,
I will destroy my people since they return not from their ways.


024:015:008
Their widows are increased to me above the sand of the seas:
I have brought upon them against the mother of the young men a spoiler at noonday:
I have caused him to fall upon it suddenly,
and terrors upon the city.


024:015:009
She that hath borne seven languisheth:
she hath given up the ghost;
her sun is gone down while it was yet day:
she hath been ashamed and confounded:
and the residue of them will I deliver to the sword before their enemies,
saith the LORD.


024:015:010
Woe is me,
my mother,
that thou hast borne me a man of strife and a man of contention to the whole earth!
I have neither lent on usury,
nor men have lent to me on usury;
yet every one of them doth curse me.


024:015:011
The LORD said,
Verily it shall be well with thy remnant;
verily I will cause the enemy to entreat thee well in the time of evil and in the time of affliction.


024:015:012
Shall iron break the northern iron and the steel?


024:015:013
Thy substance and thy treasures will I give to the spoil without price,
and that for all thy sins,
even in all thy borders.


024:015:014
And I will make thee to pass with thine enemies into a land which thou knowest not:
for a fire is kindled in mine anger,
which shall burn upon you.


024:015:015
O LORD,
thou knowest:
remember me,
and visit me,
and revenge me of my persecutors;
take me not away in thy longsuffering:
know that for thy sake I have suffered rebuke.


024:015:016
Thy words were found,
and I did eat them;
and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart:
for I am called by thy name,
O LORD God of hosts.


024:015:017
I sat not in the assembly of the mockers,
nor rejoiced;
I sat alone because of thy hand:
for thou hast filled me with indignation.


024:015:018
Why is my pain perpetual,
and my wound incurable,
which refuseth to be healed?
wilt thou be altogether unto me as a liar,
and as waters that fail?


024:015:019
Therefore thus saith the LORD,
If thou return,
then will I bring thee again,
and thou shalt stand before me:
and if thou take forth the precious from the vile,
thou shalt be as my mouth:
let them return unto thee;
but return not thou unto them.


024:015:020
And I will make thee unto this people a fenced brasen wall:
and they shall fight against thee,
but they shall not prevail against thee:
for I am with thee to save thee and to deliver thee,
saith the LORD.


024:015:021
And I will deliver thee out of the hand of the wicked,
and I will redeem thee out of the hand of the terrible.
