to a nation that was not called by1 my name.
2 iI spread out my hands all the day
jsacrificing in gardens
kwho eat pig's flesh,
lThese are a smoke in my nostrils,
6 Behold, mit is written before me:
n“I will not keep silent, but I will repay;
oI will indeed repay into their lap
7 both your iniquities pand your fathers' iniquities together,
qbecause they made offerings on the mountains
qand insulted me on the hills,
payment for their former deeds.”2
r“As the new wine is found in the cluster,
sand not destroy them all.
9 tI will bring forth offspring from Jacob,
10 uSharon shall become a pasture for flocks,
and vthe Valley of Achor a place for herds to lie down,
for my people wwho have sought me.
11 But xyou who forsake the Lord,
who forget ymy holy mountain,
who zset a table for Fortune
and zfill cups of mixed wine for Destiny,
abecause, when I called, you did not answer;
bbut you did what was evil in my eyes
“Behold, cmy servants shall eat,
14 behold, dmy servants shall sing for gladness of heart,
but his servants ghe will call by another name,
16 so that he who hblesses himself in the land
shall bless himself by hthe God of truth,
shall swear by ithe God of truth;
jbecause the former troubles are forgotten
17 “For behold, kI create new heavens
for behold, lI create Jerusalem to be a joy,
19 mI will rejoice in Jerusalem
nno more shall be heard in it the sound of weeping
for othe young man shall die a hundred years old,
and pthe sinner a hundred years old shall be accursed.
21 qThey shall build houses and inhabit them;
22 qThey shall not build and another inhabit;
rfor like the days of a tree shall the days of my people be,
and my chosen shall long enjoy3 the work of their hands.
23 sThey shall not labor in vain
for uthey shall be the offspring of the blessed of the Lord,
24 vBefore they call I will answer;
wwhile they are yet speaking I will hear.
25 xThe wolf and the lamb shall graze together;
and ydust shall be the serpent's food.
zThey shall not hurt or destroy
