Prophecy against Mount Seir
1 Again the word of the Lord came to me, saying,†
2 “Son of man, set your face against Mount Seir and prophesy against it,
3 and say to it, ‘Thus says the Lord and Master: “Behold, O Mount Seir, I am against you, and I will stretch out My hand against you. I will cause you to become a desert, and you will be wasted.
4 I will also cause desolation in your cities, and you shall be desolate. Then you will know that I am the Lord.
5 Because you have an eternal hatred for the house of Israel, and laid in wait deceitfully with sword in hand as enemies, in a time of wrongdoing to the extreme;
6 therefore, as I live,” says the Lord and Master, “truly you sinned even to blood, thus blood shall pursue you.
7 I will cause Mount Seir to become a desert and a desolate place, and destroy man and cattle from it.
8 I will fill your hills and valleys with your slain, and in all your plains and among you the slain shall fall by the sword.
9 I will make you an eternal desolation, and your cities will be inhabited no more. Then you will know that I am the Lord.
10 “Because you said, ‘The two nations and the two countries shall be mine, and I shall inherit them,’ though the Lord is there;
11 therefore, as I live,” says the Lord, “I will deal with you according to your enmity, and I will be made known to you when I judge you.
12 Then you will know that I am the Lord. I heard the voice of your blasphemies when you said, ‘The desert mountains of Israel are given to us as food.’
13 You boasted against Me with your mouth, and I heard it.”
14 Thus says the Lord: “When all the earth is in gladness, I will make you a desert.
15 You will be a desert, O Mount Seir, and all of Edom will be utterly destroyed. Then you will know that I am the Lord their God.’ ”
13 O Lord, Your name abides forever, O Lord, Your memorial unto generation and generation.
14 For the Lord will judge His people, And He shall comfort His servants.
15 The idols of the nations are silver and gold, The works of men’s hands;
16 They have a mouth, but they shall not speak; They have eyes, but they shall not see;
17 They have ears, but they shall not hear; They have noses, but they shall not smell; They have hands, but they shall not feel; They have feet, but they shall not walk; They have no sound in their throat; For neither is there breath in their mouth.
18 May those who made them become like them, And all who trust in them.
19 O house of Israel, bless the Lord; O house of Aaron, bless the Lord;
20 O house of Levi, bless the Lord; You who fear the Lord, bless the Lord.
21 Blessed be the Lord out of Zion, He who dwells in Jerusalem.
Proverbs of Solomon 28
26 He who casts off his father or mother and thinks he does not sin, He is the accomplice of an ungodly man.
27 A greedy man judges rashly, But he who trusts in the Lord shall be careful.
28 He who trusts in an arrogant heart, such a man is without discernment, But he who walks in wisdom, such a man shall be saved.†
29 He who gives to the poor shall not be in want, But he who turns away his eye from them shall be in much distress.
30 The righteous lament in the places of the ungodly, But in their destruction the righteous shall be increased.†
1 “And to the angel of the church in Sardis write, ‘These things says He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars: “I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive, but you are dead.†
2 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die, for I have not found your works perfect before God.†
3 Remember therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you.
4 You have a few names even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy.†
5 He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.†
6 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” ’
7 “And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write, ‘These things says He who is holy, He who is true, “He who has the key of David, He who opens and no one shuts, and shuts and no one opens” :†
8 “I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.†
9 Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie—indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.†
10 Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.†
11 Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.
12 He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.†
13 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” ’
14 “And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write, ‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God:†
15 “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot.†
16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.
17 Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked—†
18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see.
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.
20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.†
21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.†
22 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” ’ ”
