But the LORD [is
] with me as a mighty
terrible one: therefore my
persecutors shall stumble, and they
shall not prevail: they shall be greatly ashamed; for they shall not prosper: [their
confusion shall never be forgotten.
And I will deliver them to be removed
into all the kingdoms of the earth for [their
] hurt, [to be] a
reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a curse
, in all places whither I shall drive them.
For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; As mine
anger and my fury hath been poured forth upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem; so shall my fury be poured forth upon you, when ye shall enter into Egypt: and ye shall be
an execration, and an astonishment, and a curse, and a reproach; and ye shall see
this place no more.
In that ye provoke
me unto wrath with the works of your hands, burning incense unto other gods in the land of Egypt, whither ye be gone to dwell, that ye might cut
yourselves off, and that ye might be a curse
and a reproach among all the nations of the earth? ... And I will take
the remnant of Judah, that have set their faces to go into the land of Egypt to sojourn there, and they shall all be consumed, [and
] fall in the land of Egypt; they shall [even
] be consumed by the sword [and
] by the famine: they shall die, from the
least even unto the greatest, by the sword and by the famine: and they shall be
an execration, [and
] an astonishment, and a curse, and a reproach.
And thou shalt become
an astonishment, a proverb
, and a byword, among all nations whither the LORD shall lead thee.
Moreover I will
make thee waste, and a reproach among the nations
] round about thee, in the sight of all that pass by. ... So it shall be a reproach and a taunt, an instruction
and an astonishment unto the nations that [are
] round about thee, when
I shall execute judgments in thee in anger and in fury and in furious rebukes. I the LORD have spoken [it
O Lord, according
to all thy righteousness, I beseech thee, let thine anger and thy fury be turned away from thy city Jerusalem
, thy holy
mountain: because for our sins, and for the
iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and thy people [are become
] a reproach to all [that are
] about us.
of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life
, and some to shame [and
] everlasting contempt
As they were
increased, so they sinned against me: [therefore]
will I change their glory into shame.
