After Affliction Comes Deliverance1Woe to the ones causing misery, [4you 1but 2no one 3makes] miserable; and the one disrespecting you, does not disrespect; [3shall be captured 1the ones 2disrespecting], and they shall be delivered up; and as a moth upon a cloak, so they shall be vanquished. 2O lord, show mercy on us! [3upon 4you 1for 2we rely]. [5became 1The 2seed 3of the ones 4resisting persuasion] for destruction; but our deliverance is in time of affliction. 3On account of the sound of the fear of you [2were amazed 1peoples]. [5because of 6the 7fear 8of you 1and 4were dispersed 2the 3nations]. 4But now [2shall be gathered 1your spoils], small and great; in which manner as if one should gather locusts, so they shall mock you. 5Holy is the God dwelling in heavens. Zion shall be filled up with equity and righteousness. 6[2to 3the law 1They shall be delivered up]. [2is in 3treasuries 1Our deliverance]. Located there are wisdom and higher knowledge and piety to the lord; these are treasuries of righteousness. 7Behold indeed, in the fear of you these shall be fearful. Whom you feared shall yell out because of you; for messengers shall be sent enjoining for peace, bitterly weeping. 8[5shall be made desolate 1For 2the 4of these 3ways]. [5has been made to cease 1Your 2fear 3of the 4nations], and the covenant is lifted away, and in no way shall you consider them men. 9[3mourned 1The 2land]. Lebanon is ashamed. [3marshes 2became 1Sharon]. [3of distinction 2will be 1Galilee], and Carmel. 10Now I shall rise up, says the lord. Now I shall be glorified, now I shall be exalted, 11now you shall see, now you shall perceive, [5in vain 4shall be 1the 2strength 3of your spirit]; fire shall devour you. 12And [2shall be 1the nations] for incinerating as a thorn-bush in a field being tossed and being incinerated. 13[3shall hear 1The ones 2at a distance] what I did; and [3shall know 1the ones 2approaching] my strength. 14[5departed 1The 3in 4Zion 2lawless ones]. [2shall take 1Trembling] the impious. Who shall announce to you that a fire is being burned? Who shall announce to you the [2place 1eternal]? 15The one going in righteousness, speaking the straight way, detesting lawlessness and injustice, and [3with the 4hands 1shaking off 2bribes], weighing down the ears that he should not hear a judgment of blood, closing the eyelids of the eyes that he should not behold injustice. 16This one shall live in a high cave [2rocks 1of strong]; bread shall be given to him, and his water is trustworthy.
Future Zion17[2a king 3with 4glory 1You shall see], and your eyes shall see a land at a distance. 18 Your soul shall meditate upon fear. Where are the academics? Where are the ones advising? Where is the one counting the ones being maintained? 19A small and great people which did not take advice, nor had beheld a deep voice, so that [3should not 4hear 1a people 2being treated as worthless], and there is no [2to the one 3hearing 1understanding]. 20Behold, Zion the city, our deliverance. Your eyes shall see Jerusalem, [2city 1a rich], tents which in no way shall be shaken, nor shall [4be moved 1the 2stanchions 3of her tent] into the eon of time, nor [3her rough cords 1in any way 2shall] be torn up. 21For the name of the lord [2great 3to you 1will be]; with rivers and [4aqueducts 1spacious 2and 3broad]. You shall not go this way, nor shall [3go 1a boat 2being rowed]. 22 For my God is great; [2shall not 3pass me by 1the lord]; the lord our judge; the lord our ruler; the lord our king; the lord himself shall deliver us. 23[2were torn 1Your rough cords], for [2does not 3have strength 1your mast], it leans, it shall not let down the shrouds, it shall not lift a signal flag until of which time it should be delivered up for plunder; therefore many lame men [2plunder 1shall cause]. 24And in no way shall [6say 7I am tired 1the 2people 3dwelling 4in 5her], [3shall be forgiven 1for 4to them 2sin].
