Dearly beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, how that one day is with the Lord, as a thousand year, and a thousand year as one day.
The Lord is not slack to fulfil his promise, as some men count slackness: but is patient to us ward, and would have no man lost, but would receive all men to repentance.

EZEKIEL or JEHEZEKIEL Chpt 8
And behold, the glory of the God of Israel was in the same place: even as I had seen it afore in the field. And he said unto me: Thou son of man, O lift up thine eyes, and look toward the north. Then I lift up mine eyes toward the north., and behold: before the port northward, there was an altar made unto the image of provocation in the very entering in. And he said furthermore unto me: Thou son of man, seest thou what these do? Seest thou the great abominations that the house of Israel comites in this place? which ought not to be done in my sanctuary: But turn thee about, and thou shalt see yet greater abominations. And with that brought he me to the court gate: and when I looked, behold, there was an hole in the wall. Then said he unto me: Thou son of man, dig through the wall. And when I digged through the wall, behold there was a door. And he said unto me: Go thy way in, and look what wicked abominations they do there. So I went in, and saw: and behold, there were all manner of images of worms and beasts, all Idols and abominations of the house of Israel painted every one round about the wall. There stood also before the images. Seventy of the Lords of the counsel of the house of Israel: and in the midst of them stood Jaazaniah the son of Saphan: And every one of them had a censor in his hand, and out of the incense, there went a smoke, as it had been a cloud. Then said he unto me: Thou son of man, has thou seen what the Senators of the house of Israel do secretly, everyone in his chamber: For they say, Tush, the Lord seeth us not, the Lord regardeth not the world. And he said unto me: Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see the great abominations that they do. And with that he brought me to the door of the port of the Lords house, toward the north. And behold, there fat women mourning for Thamus. Then said he unto me: hast thou seen this, thou son of man? Turn ye about, and thou shalt see yet greater abominations. And so he brought me into the inward court of the Lords house: And behold at the port of the Lords house, between the for entry and the altar, there were five and twenty men, that turned their backs on the temple of the Lord, and their faces toward the east, and these worshiped the son.
And he said unto me: hast thou seen this thou son of man? Thinketh the house of Israel , that it is but a trifle, to do these abominations here? Should they fill the land full of wickedness, and undertake to provoke me unto anger: Yee and purposely to cast up their noses upon me? Therefore will I also do something in my wrothfull displeasure, so that mine eye shall not over see them, neither will I spare them. Yee and though they cry in mine ears with loud voice, yet will I not hear them
ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 3
Every man can *eschue a person moved to anger, for what he doth wisely? Even so shall the Lord of Hosts take away from Jerusalem and from Juda, all possessions and power, all meat and drink, the captain and the soldier, the judge and the prophet, the wise and the aged man, the worshipful of fifty year old, and the honorable: the Senators, and the men of understanding: the masters of crafts and orators. And I shall give you children to be your princes,( sayeth the Lord ) and babes shall have the rule of you. One shall ever be doing violence and wrong to another. The boy will presume against the elder, and the vile person against the honorable. Ye when one shall take a friend of his own kindred by the bosom, and say: Thou hast clothing, thou shalt be our head, for thou mayest keep us from this fall and peril.
Then shall he swear and say: I can not help you. Moreover, there is neither meat nor clothing in my house, make me no ruler of the people. For Jerusalem and Juda must decay, because both their words and counsel are against the Lord, they provoke the presence of his Majesty unto anger. The changing of their countenance betrayeth them, yee they declare their own sins themselves, as the Sodomites, and hide them not. Woe be unto their souls, for they shall be heavily rewarded. Then shall they say: O happy are the godly, for they may enjoy the fruits of their studies. But woe be unto the ungodly and unrighteous for they shall be rewarded after their works. O my people, *ribaudes oppress thee, and women have rule of thee. O my people, thy leaders deceive thee, and tread out the way of thy footsteps. The Lord is here to commune of the matter, and standeth to give judgement with the people. The Lord shall come forth to reason with the Senators and princes of his people, and shall say thus unto them: It is ye that have burnt up my vineyard, the robbery of the poor is in your house. Wherefore do ye oppress my people, and marred the faces of the innocents? thus shall the Lord God of Hosts revile them.
Moreover thus sayeth the Lord: Seeing the daughters of Sion are become so proud, and come in with stretched out necks, and with vain wanton eyes: seeing they come in tripping so nicely with their feet: Therefore shall the Lord shave the heads of the daughters of Sion, and make their beauty bare in the day. In that day shall the Lord take away the gorgeousness of their apparel, and spangles, chains, *partlets, and collars, bracelets and hooves, that goodly flowered wide and boarded raiment, brushes and head bands, rings and garlands, holy day clothes and veils, kerchiefs and pins, glasses and smocks, bonnets and *taches
And instead of good smell there shall be stink among them. And for their girdles there shall be loose bands. And for well set hair there shall be baldness. Instead of a stomacher, a sackcloth, and for their beauty witherdness and *son burning. Their husbands and their mighty men shall perish with the sword in battle.
*eschue (avoid, escape) *ribaudes ( extortioners :MN). *partlets = ruffled covering for the neck. *taches = buckles, clasps, fasteners. *son burning exactly as recorded
THE SECOND BOOK OF KINGS Chpt 17
And the Lord testified to Israel and to Juda, by all the prophets and by all the sears, saying: Turn from your wicked ways and keep my commandments and mine ordinances according to all the laws which I commanded your fathers, and as I sent to you by my servants the prophets. Notwithstanding they would not hear, but hardened their necks, like to the necks of their fathers that did not believe the Lord their God. And they refused his ordinances and his appointment that he had made with their fathers, and the witness which he had witnessed to them and followed vanity and became vain, like to the heathen that were round about them, of which the Lord had charged them, that they should not do like them. But they left the commandments of the Lord their God and made them Images of metal, even two calves: and made groves and bowed themselves unto all the Host of heaven, and served Baal. And they sacrificed their sons and their daughters in fire, and used witchcraft and enchantments, and were sold to work wickedness in the sight of the Lord, for to anger him.
THE SECOND BOOK OF KINGS Chpt 21
Manasseh was twelve year old when he began to reign and reigned fifty and five year in Jerusalem: his mothers name was Haphzibah. And he did that displeased the Lord, even after the abominations of the Heathen which the Lord cast out before the children of Israel. And he went and built the hillaltars again, which Hezekiah his father had destroyed. And he reared up altars to Baal and made groves, as did Ahab king of Israel. And he bowed himself unto all the Host of heaven and served them. And he built altars in the very house of the Lord, of which the Lord had said: in Jerusalem I will put my name. And he built altars unto all the Host of heaven, even in two courts of the house of the Lord. And he offered his son in fire, and observed dismal days, and used witchcraft and maintained workers with spirits, and tellers of fortunes: and wrought much wickedness in the sight of the Lord to anger him.
JEREMIE or JEREMIAH Chpt 7
These are the words that God spake unto Jeremie: Stand under the gates of the Lords house, and cry out these words there, with a loud voice, and say: Hear the word of the Lord all ye of Judah, that go in this door, to honor the Lord. Thus saith the Lord of Hosts the God of Israel. Amend your ways and your counsels, and I will let you dwell in this place. Trust not in the false lying words, saying: here is the temple of the Lord, here is the temple of the Lord, here is the temple of the Lord.
For if ye amend your ways and your counsels, if ye will judge right between a man and his neighbor: If ye will not oppress the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow: if ye will not shed innocent blood in this place: if ye will not cleave to strange gods to your own destruction: then will I let you dwell in this place, yee in the land that I gave afore time unto your fathers forever. But take heed, yee trust in counsels, that beguile you and do you no good. For when ye have stolen, murdered, committed *advoutry, and *penury: When ye have offered unto Baal, following strange and unknown gods: Then come ye, and stand before me in this house, which hath my name given unto it, and say: Tush, we are absolved quiet, through we have done all these abominations.
What? Think you this house that beareth my name, is a den of thieves? And these things are not done privately, but before mine eyes, sayeth the Lord. Go to my place in *Siloh, where unto I gave my name afore time, and look well what I did to the same place for the wickedness of my people of Israel. And now, though ye have done all these deeds ( sayeth the Lord ) and I myself rose up ever by times to warn you and to commune with you, yet would ye not hear me: I called, ye would not answer. And therefore even as I have done to Siloh, so will I do to this house, that my name is given unto ( and that ye put your trust in ) ye unto the place that I have given to you and your fathers. And I shall thrust you out of my sight, as I have cast out all your brethren the whole seed of Ephraim.
Therefore thou shalt not pray for this people, thou shalt neither give thanks, nor bid prayer for them : thou shalt make no intercession to me for them for in no wise will I hear thee. Seest thou not what they do in the cities of Juda, and without Jerusalem? The children gather sticks, the fathers kindle fire, the mothers knead the dough, to make cakes for the queen of heaven.
They pour out drink offerings unto strange gods, to provoke me to wrath: How be it they hurt not me ( saith the Lord ) but rather confound, and shame themselves.
And therefore thus saith the Lord God: Behold, my wrath and my indignation shall be poured out upon this place, upon men and cattle upon the trees in the field and upon and all the fruit of the land, and it shall burn so, that no man may quench it.
Thus saith the Lord of Hosts, the God of Israel: Yee heap up your burnt offerings with your sacrifices, and eat flesh. But when I brought your fathers out of Egypt, I spake no word unto them of burntofferings and sacrifices: but this I commanded them, saying: hearken and obey my voice, and I shall be your God, and ye shall be my people: so that ye walk in all the ways, which I have commanded you, that ye may prosper.
But they were not obedient, they inclined not their ears there unto, but went after their own imaginations and after the motions of their own wicked heart, and so turned themselves away, and converted not unto me. And this have they done, from the time that your fathers came out of Egypt, unto this day.
Nevertheless, I sent unto them my servants all the prophets: I rose up early and sent them word, yet would they not hearken, ner offer me their ears, but were obstinate and worse than their fathers. And thou shalt now speak all these words unto them, but they shall not hear thee: thou shalt cry upon them, but they shall not answer thee. Therefore shalt thou say unto them: this is the people, that neither heareth the voice of the Lord their God, nor receiveth his correction. Faithfulness and truth is clean rooted out of their mouth.
Wherefor cut off thine hair, and cast it away, take up a complaint in the whole land for the Lord shall cast away, and scatter the people, that he is displeased withal. For the children of Judah have done evil in my sight, saith the Lord. They have set up their abominations, in the house that hath my name, and have defiled it. They have also builded an altar at Topheth, which is in the valley of the children of Hennom: that they might burn their sons and their daughters, which I never commanded them, neither came it ever to my thought. And therefore behold, the days shall come ( saith the Lord ) that it shall no more be called Topheth, or the valley of the children of Hennom, but the valley of the slain, for in Topheth, they shall be buried, because they shall else have no room. Yee the dead bodies of this people shall be eaten up of the fowls of the air and the wild beasts of the earth, and no man shall fraie (scare) them away. And as for the voice of mirth and gladness of the cities of Judah, and Jerusalem the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride: I will make them cease, for the land shall be desolate
*penury (to cause poverty)
*advoutry: prefix "a" meaning not or without, devout: devotion; plain hearted to God, caused others to be devoted to something other than the living God. see James 2 for adultery.
*Shiloh = "place of rest"
JEREMIE or JEREMIAH Chpt 44
This is the word that was showed to Jeremy concerning all the Jews, which dwell in Egypt: which dwell at Magdal, at Thaphnis, at Memphis, and in the land of Patures. Thus sayeth the Lord of Hosts the God of Israel: Ye have seen all the misery that I have brought upon Jerusalem, and upon all the cities of Judah: so that this day they are desolate, and no man dwelling therein: and that because of the great blasphemes, which they committed, to provoke me unto anger: In that they went back to do sacrifice, and worship unto strange gods: whom neither they, ner ye, ner your fathers have known. How be it, I sent unto them my servants all the prophets: I rose up early, I sent unto them, and gave them warning: O do no such abominable things, and things that I hate. But they would not follow ner hearken, to turn from their wickedness, and to do no more sacrifice unto strange gods.As for the words that thou hast spoken unto us in the name of the Lord, we will in no wise hear them: But whatsoever goeth forth out of our own mouth, that will we do: We will do sacrifice, and offer oblations unto the Queen of heaven: like as we and our forefathers, our Kings and our heads have done in the cities of Judah, and in the streets and fields of Jerusalem. For then had we plenteousness of victuals, then were we in prosperity, and no misfortune came upon us.
Wherefore mine indignation and wrath was kindled, and it burnt up the cities of Judah, the fields with the streets of Jerusalem, so that they were made waste and desolate, as it is come to pass this day. Now therefore thus saith the Lord of Hosts the God of Israel: How happeneth it, that ye do so great evil unto your own souls, thus to destroy the men and woman, children and babes of Judah? so that none of you is left, because ye provoke me unto wrath with the works of your own hands: when ye offer unto strange gods in the land of Egypt where as ye be gone to dwell: That ye might utterly perish, and that ye might be reviled and shamefully entreated of all nations. Or have ye now forgotten the wickedness of your forefathers, the wickedness of the Kings of Judah and their wives, the wickedness that ye yourselves and your wives have done in the land of Judah, in the city and land of Jerusalem?
Yet are ye not sorry this day, ye fear not neither walk in my law and my commandments, that I have given unto you and your forefathers.
Therefore thus saith the Lord of Hosts the God of Israel: I am steadfastly advised and determined, to punish you, and to root out all Judah. As for the remnant of Judah that purposely went into Egypt, there to ease them of their misery: I will take them and they shall all be destroyed. In the land of Egypt shall they perish being consumed with the sword and with hunger. For from the least unto the most , they shall perish with the sword and with hunger. More over they will be reviled, abhorred, shamed and confounded. For I visit them that dwell in Egypt, as I have visited Jerusalem: with the sword, with hunger and with pestilence: So that none of the remnant of Judah, which are gone to dwell in Egypt shall be left to come again into the land of Judah all though they think to come thither again, and to dwell there. For none shall come again, but such as are fled away.
Then all the men which knew that their wives had offered unto strange gods, and a great sort of wives that stood there, yee and all the people that dwelt there in Egypt in the city of Patures, answered Jeremy, and said:
But since we left, to offer, and to do sacrifice unto the Queen of heaven, we have had scarceness of all things, and perish with the sword and hunger. Last of all, when we women did sacrifice and offered unto the Queen of heaven, did we make her cakes and pour unto her drink offerings, to do her service, without our husbands wills?
Then said Jeremy unto all the people, to the men, to the women, and to all the folk, which had given him that answer: Did not the Lord remember the sacrifices that ye, your forefathers, your kings and rulers ( with all the people ) have offered in the cities of Judah, in the streets and land of Jerusalem? and hath he not considered this in his mind? In so much, that the Lord might no longer suffer the wickedness of your intentions, and the abominable things which he did? Is not your land desolate and void, yee and abhorred, so that no man dwelleth therin any more, as it is come to pass this day?
Did not all this happen to you, because ye made such sacrifice, and sinned against the Lord? Ye have not followed his voice, to walk in his law, in his ordinances and statutes.
Yee this is the cause, that all misfortune happened unto you, as it is come to pass this day. Moreover, Jeremy spake unto all the people and to all the women: Hear the word of the Lord all Judah, ye that be in the land of Egypt: Thus saith the Lord of Hosts the God of Israel: Ye and your wives have both spoken with your own mouth, the thing that ye have fulfilled in deed:
Yee thus have ye said: We will not fail, but do the thing that pleaseth us: we will do sacrifice and pour out drink offerings to the Queen of heaven. Purposely have ye set up your own good meanings, and hastily have ye fulfilled your own intent. And therefore, hear the word of the Lord all Judah, ye that dwell in the land of Egypt.
Behold, I have sworn by my great name, saith the Lord, that my name shall not be rehearsed through any mans mouth of Juda, in all the land of Egypt: to say: The Lord God liveth, for I will watch, to plague them, and not for their wealth. And all the men of Judah that be in the land of Egypt, shall perish with the sword and with hunger, until they be utterly destroyed.
Nevertheless, those that fled away for the sword, shall come again into the land of Judah, but there shall be very few of them. And all the remnant of Judah, that are gone into Egypt, there to dwell, shall know whose words shall be found true: theirs or mine. Take this for a token, that I will visit you in this place, sayeth the Lord, and that ye may know, how that I ( without doubt ) will perform my purpose upon you to punish you. Behold, saith the Lord, I will deliver Pharao Hophrea King of Egypt into the hands of his enemies, that seek his life: even as I gave Zedekiah King of Judah into the hands of Nabuchodonosor King of Babylon, which sought after his life
