030:009:001
I saw the LORD standing upon the altar:
and he said,
Smite the lintel of the door,
that the posts may shake:
and cut them in the head,
all of them;
and I will slay the last of them with the sword:
he that fleeth of them shall not flee away,
and he that escapeth of them shall not be delivered.


030:009:002
Though they dig into hell,
thence shall mine hand take them;
though they climb up to heaven,
thence will I bring them down:


030:009:003
And though they hide themselves in the top of Carmel,
I will search and take them out thence;
and though they be hid from my sight in the bottom of the sea,
thence will I command the serpent,
and he shall bite them:


030:009:004
And though they go into captivity before their enemies,
thence will I command the sword,
and it shall slay them:
and I will set mine eyes upon them for evil,
and not for good.


030:009:005
And the Lord GOD of hosts is he that toucheth the land,
and it shall melt,
and all that dwell therein shall mourn:
and it shall rise up wholly like a flood;
and shall be drowned,
as by the flood of Egypt.


030:009:006
It is he that buildeth his stories in the heaven,
and hath founded his troop in the earth;
he that calleth for the waters of the sea,
and poureth them out upon the face of the earth:
The LORD is his name.


030:009:007
Are ye not as children of the Ethiopians unto me,
O children of Israel?
saith the LORD.
Have not I brought up Israel out of the land of Egypt?
and the Philistines from Caphtor,
and the Syrians from Kir?


030:009:008
Behold,
the eyes of the Lord GOD are upon the sinful kingdom,
and I will destroy it from off the face of the earth;
saving that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob,
saith the LORD.


030:009:009
For,
lo,
I will command,
and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations,
like as corn is sifted in a sieve,
yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth.


030:009:010
All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword,
which say,
The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us.


030:009:011
In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen,
and close up the breaches thereof;
and I will raise up his ruins,
and I will build it as in the days of old:


030:009:012
That they may possess the remnant of Edom,
and of all the heathen,
which are called by my name,
saith the LORD that doeth this.


030:009:013
Behold,
the days come,
saith the LORD,
that the plowman shall overtake the reaper,
and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed;
and the mountains shall drop sweet wine,
and all the hills shall melt.


030:009:014
And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel,
and they shall build the waste cities,
and inhabit them;
and they shall plant vineyards,
and drink the wine thereof;
they shall also make gardens,
and eat the fruit of them.


030:009:015
And I will plant them upon their land,
and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them,
saith the LORD thy God.
