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.

ESAI or ISAIAH Chpt 57

But in the mean season the righteous perisheth, and no man regardeth it in his heart, Good godly people are taken away, and no man considereth it. Namely: that the righteous is conveyed away through the wicked: that he himself might be at rest, lie quietly upon his bed, and live after his own pleasure. Come hither therefore ye charmers children, ye sons of the *advoutrer, and the whore: Wherein take ye your pleasure? Upon whom gape ye with your mouth, and blare out your tongue? Are ye not children of *advoutry, and the seed of *dissimilation? Ye take your pleasure under the oaks, and under all green trees, the child being slain in the valleys, and the dens of stone. Thy part shall be with the stoney rocks by the river: Yee even these shall be thy part. For there thou hast poured meat and drink offerings unto them. Should I *oversee that? Thou hast made thy bed upon high mountains, thou wentest up thither, and there hast thou slain sacrifices. Behind the doors and posts, hast thou set up thy remembrance.
       When thou hast discovered thyself to another then me, when thou wentest down and made thy bed wider ( that is ) when thou didest carve the certain yonder Idols, and lovest their couches, where thou sawest them. Thou wentest straight to kings with oil and diverse ointments (that is ) thou hast sent thy messengers far off, and yet are thou fallen into the pit thereby. Thou hast had trouble for the multitude of thine own ways, yet saidest thou never: I will leave off. Thou thinkest to have life ( or health ) of thy self, and therefore thou believest not that thou art sick. For when wilt thou be abashed or fear, seeing thou hast broken thy promise, and rememberest me not, neither hast me in thy heart? Thinkest thou, that I also will hold my peace ( as afore time ) that thou fearest me not? Yee verily I will declare thy goodness and thy works but they shall not profit thee when thou cryest, let thy chosen heap deliver thee. But the wind shall take them all away, and carry them in to the air. Nevertheless, they that put their trust in me, shall inherit the land, and have my holy hill in possession.
      And therefore thus he sayeth: Make ready, make ready, and cleanse the street, take up what you can out of the way that leadeth to my people. For thus sayeth the high and excellent, even he that dwelleth in everlastingness, whose name is the holy one: I dwell high above and in the sanctuary, and with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit: that I may heal a troubled mind, and a contrite heart. For I chide not ever, and am not wroth without end. But the blasting goeth from me, though I make the breath. I am wroth with him for his covetousness and lust, I smite him, I hide me, and am angry, when he turneth himself, and followeth the by way of his own heart. But if I may see his right way again, I make him whole, I lead him and restore him unto them whom he maketh joyful, and that were sorry for him. I make the fruits of thanksgiving. I give peace unto them that are far off, and to them that are nye, say I the Lord, that make him whole. But the wicked are like the raging see, that cannot rest, whose water foameth with the mire and gravel. Even so the wicked have no peace, sayeth my God

     *advoutrer (a /devoted; not /devoted, to God), the seed of *dissimilation? similar Yet NOT!
Should I *oversee that? (overlook that?)
*advoutry : see the word devoted, a-devoted; where the heart is: prefix: a meaning: not, without against. devoted to God, Christ, and the truth. Note also that this word is most often replaced in the kjv and other bibles of man with adultery. So that you know this word here is NOT adultery, see James 2 for adultery. dissimulation : Dictionary; the act or process of making or becoming dissimilar. distinct, diverse, unlike, incompatible, disparate. note also: the word "religion" is not found in all the original text.

JEREMIE or JEREMIAH Chpt 2

 Moreover, the word of the Lord commanded me thus: Go thy way, and cry in the ears Jerusalem, and say: Thus saith the Lord: I remember thee for the kindness of thy youth, and because of thy steadfast love: in that thou followest me through the wilderness, in an untilled land. Thou Israel was hallowed unto the Lord, and so was his firstfruits. All they that devoured Israel, offended: misfortune fell upon them, saith the Lord. Hear therefore the word of the Lord, O thou house of Jacob, and all the generation of the house of Israel. Thus saith the Lord unto you.
      What unfaithfulness found your fathers in me, that they went so far away from me, falling to lightness, and being so vain? They thought not in their hearts: Where have we left the Lord, that brought us out of the land of Egypt, that led us through the wilderness, through a desert and rough land, through a dry and deadly land, yee a land that no man had gone through, and wherein no man had dwelt. And when I had brought you into a pleasant well builded land, that ye might enjoy the fruits and all the commodities of the same: ye went forth and defiled my land, and brought mine heritage to abomination.
      The priests themselves said not once: Where is the Lord? They that have the law in their hands, know me not: The shepherds offend against me. The Prophets do service to Baal, and follow such things as bring them no profit.
      Wherefore I am constrained ( saith the Lord ) to make my complaint upon you, and upon your children. Go into the Isles of Cethim, and look well: and send unto Cedar, take diligent heed: and see, whether such things be done there, whether the Gentiles themselves deal so falsely and untruly with their gods, ( which yet are no gods indeed ) But my people hath given over their high honor, for a thing that may not help them.
      Be astonished ( O ye heavens ) be afraid, and abashed at such a thing, saith the Lord. For my people hath done two evils. They have forsaken me the well of the water of life, and digged them pits, yee vile and broken pits, that hold no water. Is Israel a bond servant, or one of the household? Why is he then so spoiled? Why do they roar and cry upon him, as a lion? They have made his land waste, his cities are so burnt up, that there is no man dwelling in them. Yee the children of Noph and Taphnes have defiled thy neck.
      Come not this unto thee, because thou hast forsaken the Lord thy God, ever since he led thee by the way? And what hast thou now to do in the street of Egypt? to drink foul water? Ether, what makest thou in the way of Assiria? To drink water of the flood? Thine own wickedness shall reprove thee, and thy turning away shall condemn thee: that thou mayest know and understand, how evil and hurtful a thing it is, that thou hast forsaken the Lord thy God, and not feared him, saith the Lord God of Hosts.
      I have ever broken thy yoke of old, and burst thy bonds: yet sayest thou, I will no more serve, but ( like an harlot ) thou runnest about upon all high hills, and among all green trees where as I planted thee out of noble grapes and good roots. How art thou turned then in to a bitter, unfruitful, strange grape? Yee and that so sore: that though thou wash thee with *Nitrus and make thyself to favor with that sweet smelling herb of Borith: yet in my sight thou art stained with thy wickedness, sayeth the Lord thy God.
      Say not now: I am not unclean, and I have not followed the Gods. Look upon thy own ways in the woods, valleys and dens: so shalt thou know, what thou hast done. Thou art like a swift Dromedary, that goeth easily his way: and thy wantonness is like a wild Ass, that useth the wilderness, and that snuffeth and bloweth at his will. Who can tame thee? All they that seek thee, shall not fail, but find thee in thy own uncleanness. Thou keepest thy foot from nakedness, and thy throat from thirst, and thinkest thus in thyself: tush: I will take no sorrow, I will love the strange gods, and hang upon them.
      Like as a thief that is taken with the deed cometh to shame, even so is the house of Israel come to confusion: the common people, their kings and rulers, their priests and prophets. For they say to a stock, thou art my father, and to a stone: thou hast begotten me, yee they have turned their back upon me, and not their face. But in the time of their trouble, when they say: stand up, help us, I shall answer them: Where are now thy gods, that thou hast made thee? bid them stand up, and help thee in the time of need? For look how many cities thou hast ( O Judah ) so many gods hast thou also.
      Wherefore then will ye go to law with me, seeing ye are all sinners against me, saith the Lord? It is but lost labor, that I smite your children, for they receive not my correction. Your own sword devoureth your prophets, like a devouring lion. If ye be the people of the Lord, then hearken unto his word: Am I then become a wilderness unto the people of Israel? or a land that hath no light? Wherefore sayeth my people then: we are fallen off, and we will come no more unto thee? Doth a maiden forget her raiment, or a bride her stomacher? And doth my people forget me so long? Why boasteth thou thy ways so highly ( to obtain favor there through ) when thou hast yet stained them with blasphemies?
      Upon thy wings is found the blood of poor and innocent people, and that not in corners and holes only, but openly in all these places. Yet darest thou say: I am guiltless: Tush, his wrath can not come upon me. Behold, I will reason with thee because thou darest say: I have not offended. O how evil will it be for thee, to abide it: when it shall be known, how often thou hast gone backward? For thou shalt be confounded, as well of Egypt, as of the Assirians: yee thou shalt go thy way from them, and smite thy hands together upon thy head. Because the lord shall bring that confidence and hope of thine to naught, and thou shalt not prosper with all

*Nitrus = to shake tremble, loose, walls. to be loose of the walls (hedge of the Lord) replaced by the walls of false teachings. Borith = Berith meaning a covenant between men.( not of God) RN

JEREMIE or JEREMIAH Chpt 3

Commonly, when a man putteth away his wife, and she goeth from him, and marrieth with another, then the question is: should he restore unto her any more after that? Is not this field then defiled and unclean? But as for thee, thou hast played the harlot with many lovers, yet turn again to me, saith the Lord. Lift up thine eyes on every side, and look, if thou be not defiled. Thou hast waited for them in the streets, and as a murderer in the wilderness. Through thy whoredoms and blasphemes, the land is defiled.
      This is the cause, that the rain and evening dew hath ceased. Thou hadst gotten thee an whores forehead, and canst not be ashamed. Else wouldest thou say unto me: O my father, thou art he that hast brought me up, and led me from my youth: Wilt thou then put me away and cast me off for ever? Or wilt thou withdraw thyself clean from me? Nevertheless, thou speakest such words, but thou art ever doing worse and worse.
      The Lord said also unto me: in the time of Josiah the king: Hast thou seen what that shrinking Israel hath done? how she hath run upon all the hills, and among all thick trees, and there played the harlot: hast thou seen also ( when she had done all this ) how I said unto her: that she should turn again unto me, and yet she is not returned? Judah that unfaithful sister of hers also saw this: Namely, that after I had seen the *advoutry of the stinking harlot Israel, I put her away, and give her a bill of divorcement.
      For all this, her unfaithful sister Judah was not ashamed, but went back and played the harlot also. Yee and the noise of her whoredom hath defiled the whole land. For she hath committed her **advoutry with stones and with stocks.
      Nevertheless, her unfaithful sister Judah is not turned unto me again with her whole heart, but *feignedly, saith the Lord. And the Lord said unto me. The backslider Israel is more righteous, then the unfaithful Judah: and therefore go preach these words toward the north, and say: Thou shrinking Israel, turneth again ( saith the Lord ) and I will not turn my face from you, for I am merciful, saith the Lord, and I will not always bare displeasure against thee: but on this condition, that thou know thy great blaspheme: Namely, that thou hast unfaithfully forsaken the Lord thy God, and hast made thyself partaker of strange Gods under all green trees, but hast no will to hear my voice, saith the Lord.
      O ye shrinking children, turn again, sayeth the Lord: and I will be married with you. For I will take one out of the city, and two out of one generation from among you, and bring you out of Sion: and I will give you herdsmen after my own mind, which shall feed you with learning and wisdom. Moreover, when ye be increased and multiplied in the land, then ( saith the Lord ) there shall no more boast be made of the ark of the Lords Testament: No man shall think upon it, neither shall any man make mention of it: for from thenceforth it shall neither be visited, ner honored with gifts.
      Then shall Jerusalem be called the Lords seat and all Heathen shall be gathered unto it, for the name of the Lords sake, which shall be set up in Jerusalem. And from that time forth, they shall follow no more the imagination of their own froward heart.
      Then those that be of the house of Judah shall go into the house of Israel: and they shall come together out of the North, into the same land that I have gave their fathers. I have showed also, how I took thee up being but a child, and give thee a pleasant land for thy heritage, yee and a goodly Hosts of the Heathen: and how I commanded thee, that thou shouldest call me father only, and not to shrink from me.
      But like as a woman faileth her lover, so are ye unfaithful to me ( O ye house of Israel ) saith the Lord. And therefore the voice of the children of Israel was heard on every side, weeping and wailing: for they have defiled their way, and forgotten God their Lord.
      O ye shrinking children, turn again ( saying: lo, we are thine, for thou art the Lord our God:) And so I will heal your backturnings. The hills fall, and all the high pride of the mountains, but the health of Israel standeth only upon God our Lord.
      Confusion hath devoured our fathers labor from our youth up: yee their sheep and bullocks, their sons and daughters. So do we also sleep in our confusion, and shame covereth us: for we and our fathers from our youth up unto this day have sinned against the Lord our God, and have not obeyed the voice of the Lord our God

*advouterer: prefix "a" meaning not or without, devout: devotion; plain hearted to God only see James 2 for adultery **here we see the truth of this word, as these are devoted to any "thing" but our living God through Jesus Christ. see James 2 for adultery
*feignedly (pretended affection)

 

EZEKIEL or JEHEZEKIEL Chpt 6

 And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying: thou son of man, turn thy face to the mountains of Israel, that thou may prophesy unto them, and say: Hear the word of the Lord God, O ye mountains of Israel: Thus hath the Lord God spoken to the mountains, hills, rivers, valleys and dales.
      Behold, I will bring a sword over you, and destroy your high places. I will cast down your alt
ars, and break down your temples. Your slain men will I leave before your gods. and the dead carcasses of the children of Israel will I cast before their images, your bones will I destroy round about your altars, and dwelling places.
      The cities shall be desolate, the hill chapels laid waste: your alters destroyed, and broken: your goods cast down, and taken away, your temples laid even with the ground, your own works clean rooted out.
      Your slain men shall lie among you, that ye may learn to know, how that I am the Lord. Those that among you have escaped the sword, I will leave among the Gentiles, for I will scatter you among the nations. And they that escape from you, shall think upon me among the Heathen, where they shall be in captivity.
      As for that whorish and unfaithful heart of theirs, wherewith they run away from me, I will break it: yee and put out those eyes of theirs, that committed fornication with their Idols.
      Then shall they be ashamed, and displeased with themselves, for the wickedness and abominations, which they have done: and shall learn to know, how that it is not in vain, that I the Lord speak, to bring such misery upon them.
      The Lord said moreover unto me: Smite thy hands together, and stamp with thy feet, and say: Woe worth all the abominations and wickednesses of the house of Israel, for because of them, they shall perish with the sword, with hunger and with pestilence. Who so is far off, shall die of the pestilence: he that is near at hand, shall perish with the sword: and the other that are besieged, shall die of hunger.
      Thus will I satisfy my wrothful displeasure upon them. And so shall ye learn to know, that I am the Lord, when your slain men lie among your goddes, and about your alters: upon all high hills and tops of mountains, among all green trees, among all thick oaks: even in the places, where they did sacrifice to all their Idols. I will stretch my hand out upon them, and will make the land waste: So that it shall lie desolate and void, from the wilderness of Deblathah forth, through all their habitations: to learn them to know, that I am the Lord

 

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"

 

EZEKIEL or JEHEZEKIEL Chpt 20

  In the seventh year, the tenth day of the fifth month, it happened, that certain of the elders of Israel came unto me, for to ask counsel at the Lord, and sat them down by me. Then came the word of the Lord unto me on this manner: Thou son of man: speak unto the elders of Israel, and say unto them: Thus saith the Lord God: Are ye come hither to ask anything at me? As truly as I live, ( saith the Lord God ) I will give you no answer. Wilt thou not reprove them ( thou son of man ) wilt thou not reprove them? Show them the abominations of their fathers: and tell them: Thus saith the Lord God: In the day when I chose Israel, and lift up mine hand upon the seed of the house of Jacob, and showed myself unto them in the land of Egypt, Yee when I lift up mine hand over them, and said: I am the Lord your God, even in that day that I lift up mine hand over them, to bring them out of the land of Egypt, into a land that I provided for them, which flowed with milk and honey, and is a pleasant land among all others: Then said I unto them: Cast away every man the abominations that he hath before him, and defile not yourselves with the Idols of Egypt, for I am the Lord your God.
      But they rebelled against me, and would not follow me: to cast away every man the abominations of his eyes, and to forsake the Idols of Egypt. Then I made me to pour my indignation over them, and to satisfy my wrath upon them: Yee even in the midst of the land of Egypt. But I would not do it, for my names sake: that it should not be unhallowed before the Heathen, among whom they dwelt, and among whom I showed my self unto them, that I would bring them out of the land of Egypt. Now when I had carried them out of the land of Egypt, and brought them into the wilderness. I gave them my comandments, and showed them my laws: which who so keepeth shall live in them. I gave them also my holy days, to be a token between me and them, and thereby to know, that I am the Lord, which halloweth them. And yet the house of Israel rebelled against me in the wilderness, they would not walk in my comandments, they have cast away my laws ( which whose keepeth should live in them ) and my Sabbath days have they greatly unhallowed.
      Then I made me to pour out my indignation upon them, and to consume them in the wilderness, Yet I would not do it, for my names sake: least it should be dishonored before the Heathen, from which I had carried them away. But I swore unto them in the wilderness, that I would not bring them into the land, which I give them: a land that floweth with milk and honey, and is a pleasure of all lands: and because they refused my laws, and walked not in my comandments, but had unhallowed my Sabbaths, for their heart was gone after their idols. Nevertheless mine eye spared them, so that I would not utterly slay them, and consume them in the wilderness. Moreover, I said unto their sons in the wilderness: walk not in the statutes of your forefathers, keep not their ordinances, and defile yourselves with their idols, for I am the Lord your God. But walk in my statutes, keep my laws and do them, hallow my Sabbaths: for they are a token between you and me, that ye may know how that I am the Lord your God. Notwithstanding, their sons rebelled against me also: they walked not in my statutes, they kept not my laws to fulfill them ( which he that doth shall live in them ) neither hallowed they my Sabbath days. Then I made me to pour out my indignation over them, and to satisfy my wrath upon them in the wilderness. Nevertheless, I withdrew mine hand for my names sake, least it should be unhallowed among the Heathen, before whom I had brought them forth. I lift up mine hand over them also in the wilderness, that I would scatter them among the Heathen, and strew them among the nations: because they had not kept my laws, but cast aside my comandments, unhallowed my Sabbaths, and lift up their eyes to their fathers Idols. Wherefore I also gave them comandments not good, and laws through the which they should not live, and I unhallowed them in their own gifts ( when I appointed for my own self all their first born ) to make them desolate: that they might know that I am the Lord.
      Therefore ( O son of man ) tell the house of Israel, thus saith the Lord God: Behold all this, your fathers have yet blasphemed me more, and greatly offended against me: For after I had brought them into the land, That I promised to give to them, when they saw every high hill, and all the thick trees: they made their offerings, and provoked me with their oblations, making sweet saviours there, and poured out their drink offerings. Then I ask them, What have ye to with all, that ye go thither? And therefore it is called the high place unto this day. Wherefore, speak unto the house of Israel: Thus saith the Lord God: ye are even as unclean as your forefathers, and commit whoredom also with their abominations. In all your idols, where unto you bring your oblations, and to whos honor ye burn your children: ye defile your selves, even unto this day: how dare ye then come , and ask any question at me? O ye household of Israel? As truly as I live ( saith the Lord God ) ye get no answer of me: and as for the thing that ye go about, it shall not come to pass, where as ye say: we will be as the Heathen, and do as other people in the land, wood and stone will we worship.
      As truly as I live, saith the Lord God, I myself will rule you with a mighty hand, with a stretched out arm, and with indignation poured out over you: and will bring you out of the nations and lands, wherein ye are scattered: and gather you together with a mighty hand, with a stretched out arm and with indignation poured out upon you: and will bring you into the wilderness of the people, and there I will reason with you face to face. Like as I punished your forefathers in the wilderness, so will I punish you also, saith the Lord God. I will bring you under my jurisdiction, and under the bond of the covenant. The forsakers also and the transgressors will I take from among you, and bring them out of the land of your habitations: As for the land of Israel, they shall no come in it: that they may know that I am the Lord.
      Go now then ( thus saith the Lord God ) ye house of Israel, cast away, and destroy every man his Idols: then shall ye hear me, and no more blaspheme my holy name with your offerings and Idols. But upon my holy hill, even upon the high hill of Israel shall all the house of Israel and all that is in the land, worship me: and in the same place will I savoir them, and there will I require your heave offerings, and the firstlings of your oblations, with all your holy things.
      I will accept your sweet savoir, when I bring you from the nations, and gather you together out of the lands, wherein ye be scattered: that I may be hallowed in you before the Heathen. and that ye may know, that I am the Lord, which have brought you into the land of Israel: Yee into the same land, that I swore to give to your forefathers. There shall ye call to remembrance your own ways and all your imaginations, wherein ye have been defiled: and ye shall be displeased with your own selves, for all your wickedness, that ye have done. And ye shall know that I am the Lord: when I entreat you after my name, not after your wicked ways, nor according to your corrupt works: O ye house of Israel, saith the Lord.
      Moreover, the word of the Lord came unto me, saying: Thou son of man, set thy face toward the south, and speak to the south wind, and say to the wood toward the south: Hear the word of the Lord, thus saith the Lord God: Behold, I will kindle a fire in thee, that shall consume the *green trees with the Dry. No man shall be able to quench his flame, but all that looketh *from the south to the north shall be burned therein. And all flesh shall see, that I the Lord have kindled it, so that no man shall quench it. Then said I: O' Lord, they will say of me: Tush, they are but fables that he telleth

     MN: the *green trees with the Dry By the green trees understand the saints and holy ones, and by the dry, sinners and that the Godly shall by death escape captivity and the wicked be sent into everlasting pain. *from the South to the North, that is from Jerusalem to Babylon

     THE FOURTH BOOK OF ESDRAS Chpt 4

   And the angel that was sent unto me ( whos name was Uriel ) gave me an answer, and said: Thy heart has taken to much upon it in this world, and thou thinkest to comprehend the way of the Highest. Then said I: Yee my Lord: And he answered me, and said: I am sent to show thee these ways, and to set forth these similitudes, before thee: whereof if thou canst declare me one , I will show thee also the way, that thou desirest to see: and I shall show thee from whence the wicked heart cometh. And I said: Tell on my Lord. Then said he unto me: Go thy way, weigh me the weight of the fire, or measure me the blast of the wind, or call me again the day that is past. Then answered I and said: What man born is able to do that? Why requirest thou such of me? And he said unto me: If I should ask thee, how deep dwellings are in the sea? Or how great water springs are upon the firmament: Or how great water springs are in the firmament of the deep? Or which are the out goings of paradise? Peradventure thou wouldest say unto me: I never went down into the deep nor hell, neither did I ever climb up in to heaven. Nevertheless now have I asked thee but only of fire and wind and of the day, where through thou hast traveled, and from the which thou canst not be separated: and yet canest thou give me no answer of them.
      He said moreover unto me: Thine own things, and such as are grown up with thee, canest thou not know: how should thy vessel then be able to comprehend the way of the Highest, and now outwardly in the corrupt world, to understand the corruption that is evident in my sight: Then said I unto him: It were better that we were not at all, then that we should live in wickedness, and to suffer, and not to know wherefore. He answered me, and said: I went in a wood, and the trees took such a device and said: Come let us go, and fight against the sea, that it may depart away from us, and that we may make us yet more woods.
      The floods of the sea in like manner took this device, and said: Come, let us go up, and fight against the trees of the wood, that we may make our land wider. The thought of the wood was but vain and nothing worth, for the fire came and consumed the wood: The thought of the floods of the sea came likewise to naught also, for the sand stood up and stopped them.
      If thou were judge now between these two, whom wouldest thou justify, or whom wouldest thou condemn? I answered and said: Shurly it is a foolish thought that they both devised. For the ground is given unto the wood, and the sea also has his place to bare his floods. Then answered he me, and said: Thou hast given a right judgement, why judgest thy self also? For like as the ground is given unto the wood, and the sea to his flood: even so they that dwell upon the earth, may understand nothing, but that which is upon the earth: and he that dwelleth above the heavens, may only understand the things that are above the heavens. Then answered I, and said: I beseech thee, O' Lord, let me have understanding: for it was not my mind to be curious of thy high things, but of such as we meddle with all, namely, wherefore that Israel is blasphemed of the Heathen, and for what cause the people ( whom thou ever hast loved ) is given over, to be punished of ungodly nations: and why the law of our fathers is brought to nought, and the written covenants come to none effect, and we pass away out of the world as the grasshoppers, and our life is very fear, and we are not worthy to obtain mercy. What will he do unto his name, which is called upon over us? Of these things have I asked question.
      Then answered he me, and said: The more thou searchest, the more thou shalt marvel, for the world hasteth fast to pass away, and can not comprehend the things, that are promised for the righteous in time to come, for this world is full of unrighteousness and weakness.
      But as concerning the things whereof thou asked me, I will tell thee. The evil is sown, but the destruction thereof is not yet come. If the evil now that is sown, be not turned upside down, and the place where the evil is sown, pass not away, then can not the thing come that is sown with good. For the corn of evil seed hath been sown in the heart of man from the beginning, and how much ungodliness hath he brought up unto this time? and how much shall he yet bring forth, until he come into the barn?
      Ponder now by thy self, when the corn of the evil seed is cut down, how great a barn it shall fill: I answered and said: How and when shall these things come to pass? Wherefore are our years few from evil? And he answered me, saying: Ask not thou too much upon the Highest, for thy hastiness to be above him is but vain, thou makest to much a do. Did not the souls also of the righteous ask question of these things in their holiness:* How long shall I hope of this fashion? When cometh the fruit of my barn, and my reward? And upon this Jeremiel the Archangel gave them answer, and said: Even when the number of the seeds is filled in you: for he hath weighed the world in the balance: in measure and number hath he measured the time, and moveth it not, until the same measure be fulfilled. Then answered I and said: O' Lord, Lord, now are we all full of sin, and for our sake peradventure is it not, that the barn of the righteous shall not be filled, because of the sins of them that dwell upon the earth.
      So he answered me., and said: Go thy way to a woman with children, and ask of her, when she hath fulfilled her nine months, if her childbed may keep the birth any longer within her. Then said I: No Lord, that can she not. And he said unto me: In hell the secret places of souls are like the privy chamber of a woman. For like as a woman that travaileth, maketh haste, when the time and necessity of the birth is at hand: Even so doth she hast to deliver it that is committed unto her. Look what thou desirest to see, it shall be shown thee from the beginning. Then answered I , and said: If I have found favor in thy sight, and if it be possible, and if I be meet therefore, show me then, whether there be more to come than is past, or more past then there is for to come. What is past, I know: but what is for to come, I know not.
      And he said unto me: Stand up upon the right side, and I shall expound the similitude unto thee. So I stood, and behold, an hot burning oven went over before me: and it happened when the flame was gone by, the smoke had the upper hand. After this there went over before me a watery cloud, and sent down much rain with a storm: and when the stormy rain was past the drops remained still. Then said he unto me: like as the rain is more than the drops, and as the fire exceedeth the smoke, even so the measure of the things that are past, hath the upper hand. Then went the drops and the smoke above: and I prayed and said: May I live (thinkest thou) until that time? Or what shall happen in those days? He answered me, and said: As for the tokens whereof thou ask me, I may tell thee of them in a part: but as touching thy life, I may not show thee, for I am not sent therefore

* How long shall I hope of this fashion? (marginal note Revelation 6)

     EZEKIEL or JEHEZEKIEL Chpt 21

   The word of the Lord came yet unto me again saying: Thou son of man, make thee two streets, that the sword of the king of Babylon may come. Both these streets shall go out of one land. He shall set him up a place, at the head of the street shall he choose him out a corner. Make that a street, that the sword may come toward Kabbath of the Ammonites, and to the strong city of Jerusalem. For the king of Babylon shall stand in the turning of the way, at the head of the two trees: to ask counsel of the soothsayers, casting the lots with his arrows, to ask counsel at the Idols, and to look in the liver. But the soothsaying shall point to the right side upon Jerusalem, that he may set men of war, to smite it with a great noise, to cry out Alarm, to set battle rams against the gates, to grave up ditches, and to make bulwarks.
      Nevertheless, as for the soothsaying, they shall hold it but for vanity, even as though a jest were told them: yee and they themselves remember their wickedness, so that by right they must be taken and *womne.Therefore saith the Lord God: for as much as ye yourselves show your offense, and have opened your wickedness, so that in all your works men may see your sins: yee in so much ( I say ) that ye yourselves have made mention thereof ye shall be taken by violence.
      O thou shameful wicked guide of Israel whose day is come: even the time when wickedness shall have an end: Thus saith the Lord God: take away the miser, and put off the crown, and so is it away: the humble is exalted, and the proud brought low. Punish, punish, yee punish them will I, and destroy them: and that shall not be fulfilled till he come, to whom the judgement belongeth, and to whom I have given it. And thou ( O son of man ) prophecy, and speak: Thus saith the Lord God to the children of Ammon, and to their blaspheme, speak thou: The sword, the sword is drawn forth already to slaughter, and scoured that it glittereth ( because thou hast looked out vanities, and prophesied lies ) that it may come upon thy neck, like as upon the other ungodly, which be slain: whose day came, when their wickedness was full.
      Though it were put up again into the sheath, yet will I punish thee, in the land where thou wast nourished and born, and pour my indignation upon thee and will blow upon thee in the fire of my wrath, and deliver thee unto evil people, which are learned to destroy. Thou shalt feed the fire and thy blood shall be shed in the land, that thou mayest be put out of remembrance. Even I the Lord have spoken it

*dighting=prepared, dressed, made ready. *womne (won).

 

THE REVELATION OF ST JOHN Chpt 11

 

 And then was given me a reed, like unto a rod, and it was said unto me: Rise and meet the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein, and the *quere which is within the temple, cast out and meet it not: for it is given unto the Gentiles, and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty two months. And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy one thousand, two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sack cloth. These are two olive trees, and two candlesticks, standing before the God of the earth.
      And if any man will hurt them, fire shall proceed out of their mouths, and consume their enemies. And if any man will hurt them this wise must he be killed. These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophesying: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all manner plagues, as often as they will.
      And when they have finished their testimony, the beast that came out of the bottomless pit, shall make war against them and shall overcome them, and kill them. And their bodies shall lie in the streets of the great city, which spiritually is called *Zodom and Eygpt, where our Lord was crucified. And they of the people and kindreds, and tongues, and they of the nations, shall see their bodies three days and an half, and shall not *suffer their bodies to be put in graves. And they that dwell upon the earth, shall rejoice over them and be glad, and shall send gifts one to another for these two Prophets vexed them that dwelt on the earth.
      And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God, entered into them. And they stood up upon their feet: and great fear came upon them which saw them. And they heard a great voice from heaven, saying unto them. Come up hither. And they ascended up into heaven in a cloud, and their enemies saw them. And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain names of men seven thousand and the remnant were feared, and gave glory to God of heaven. The second woe is past, and third woe will come *anon.
      And the seventh angel blew, and there were made great voices in heaven, saying: the kingdoms of this world are our Lords and his Christs, and he shall reign for evermore. And the twenty four elders, which sit before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God saying: we give thee thanks Lord God almighty: which art and wast, and art to come, for thou hast received thy great might, and hast reigned. And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead that they should be judged and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the Prophets and Saints, and to them that fear thy name small and great and shouldest destroy them, which destroy the earth. And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple, the ark of his testament: and there followed lightnings, and voices, and thunderings and earthquake, and much hail

*Zodom (Sodom)      *suffer (allow) *anon (shortly). *quere : place of asking ...where petitions are heard.
