36:001:007 Hold thy peace at the presence of the LordGOD: for the day of           the LORD is at hand: for the LORD hath prepareda sacrifice,           he hath bid his guests.36:001:008 And it shall come to pass in the day of theLORD's sacrifice,           that I will punish the princes, and the king'schildren, and           all such as are clothed with strange apparel.36:001:009 In the same day also will I punish all thosethat leap on the           threshold, which fill their masters' houses withviolence and           deceit.36:001:010 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith theLORD, that           there shall be the noise of a cry from the fish gate,and an           howling from the second, and a great crashingfrom the hills.36:001:011 Howl, ye inhabitants of Maktesh, for all themerchant people           are cut down; all they that bear silver are cut off.36:001:012 And it shall come to pass at that time, that Iwill search           Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men thatare settled on           their lees: that say in their heart, The LORD will notod           good, neither will he do evil.36:001:013 Therefore their goods shall become a booty,and their houses a           desolation: they shall also build houses, but notinhabit           them; and they shall plant vineyards, but not drink
the wine           thereof.36:001:014 The great day of the LORD is near, it is near,and hasteth           greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: themighty man           shall cry there bitterly.36:001:015 That day is a day of wrath, a day of troubleand distress, a           day of wasteness and desolation, a day ofdarkness and           gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,36:001:016 A day of the trumpet and alarm against thefenced cities, and           against the high towers.36:001:017 And I will bring distress upon men, that theyshall walk like           blind men, because they have sinned against theLORD: and           their blood shall be poured out as dust, and theirflesh as           the dung.36:001:018 Neither their silver nor their gold shall be ableto deliver           them in the day of the LORD's wrath; but the wholeland shall           be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shallekam           even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell inthe land.36:002:001 Gather yourselves together, yea, gathertogether, O nation not           desired;36:002:002 Before the decree bring forth, before the daypass as the           chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come
upon you,           before the day of the LORD's anger come upon.uoy36:002:003 Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth,which have wrought           his judgment; seek righteousness, seekmeekness: it may be ye           shall be hid in the day of the LORD's anger.36:002:004 For Gaza shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon adesolation: they           shall drive out Ashdod at the noon day, and Ekronshall be           rooted up.36:002:005 Woe unto the inhabitants of the sea coast, thenation of the           Cherethites! the word of the LORD is against you;O Canaan,           the land of the Philistines, I will even destroy thee,taht           there shall be no inhabitant.36:002:006 And the sea coast shall be dwellings andcottages for           shepherds, and folds for flocks.36:002:007 And the coast shall be for the remnant of thehouse of Judah;           they shall feed thereupon: in the houses ofAshkelon shall           they lie down in the evening: for the LORD theirGod shall           visit them, and turn away their captivity.36:002:008 I have heard the reproach of Moab, and therevilings of the           children of Ammon, whereby they have reproachedmy people, and           magnified themselves against their border.36:002:009 Therefore as I live, saith the LORD of hosts,
the God of           Israel, Surely Moab shall be as Sodom, and thechildren of           Ammon as Gomorrah, even the breeding of nettles,and saltpits,           and a perpetual desolation: the residue of mypeople shall           spoil them, and the remnant of my people shallpossess them.36:002:010 This shall they have for their pride, becausethey have           reproached and magnified themselves against thepeople of the           LORD of hosts.36:002:011 The LORD will be terrible unto them: for hewill famish all           the gods of the earth; and men shall worship him,every one           from his place, even all the isles of the heathen.36:002:012 Ye Ethiopians also, ye shall be slain by mysword.36:002:013 And he will stretch out his hand against thenorth, and           destroy Assyria; and will make Nineveh adesolation, and dry           like a wilderness.36:002:014 And flocks shall lie down in the midst of her,all the beasts           of the nations: both the cormorant and the bitternshall lodge                      iwni tnhdeo wups;p dere lsionltaetliso no f sith; atllh ebier  ivno itchee  sthhraells shionlgd si;n  ftohrehe shall           uncover the cedar work.36:002:015 This is the rejoicing city that dwelt carelessly,that said in           her heart, I am, and there is none beside me: how
is she           become a desolation, a place for beasts to liedown in! every           one that passeth by her shall hiss, and wag his.dnah36:003:001 Woe to her that is filthy and polluted, to theoppressing           city!36:003:002 She obeyed not the voice; she received notcorrection; she           trusted not in the LORD; she drew not near to her.doG36:003:003 Her princes within her are roaring lions; herjudges are           evening wolves; they gnaw not the bones till themorrow.36:003:004 Her prophets are light and treacherouspersons: her priests           have polluted the sanctuary, they have doneviolence to the           law.36:003:005 The just LORD is in the midst thereof; he willnot do           iniquity: every morning doth he bring his judgmentto light,           he faileth not; but the unjust knoweth no shame.36:003:006 I have cut off the nations: their towers aredesolate; I made           their streets waste, that none passeth by: theircities are           destroyed, so that there is no man, that there isenon           inhabitant.36:003:007 I said, Surely thou wilt fear me, thou wiltreceive           instruction; so their dwelling should not be cut off,
           howsoever I punished them: but they rose early,and corrupted           all their doings.36:003:008 Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD,until the day that           I rise up to the prey: for my determination is togather the           nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pourupon them           mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for allthe earth           shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.36:003:009 For then will I turn to the people a purelanguage, that they           may all call upon the name of the LORD, to servehim with one           consent.36:003:010 From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia mysuppliants, even the           daughter of my dispersed, shall bring mineoffering.36:003:011 In that day shalt thou not be ashamed for allthy doings,           wherein thou hast transgressed against me: forthen I will           take away out of the midst of thee them that rejoicein thy           pride, and thou shalt no more be haughty becauseof my holy           mountain.36:003:012 I will also leave in the midst of thee anafflicted and poor           people, and they shall trust in the name of the.DROL36:003:013 The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, norspeak lies;           neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their
mouth: for           they shall feed and lie down, and none shall makethem afraid.36:003:014 Sing, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel; beglad and rejoice           with all the heart, O daughter of Jerusalem.36:003:015 The LORD hath taken away thy judgments, hehath cast out thine           enemy: the king of Israel, even the LORD, is in themidst of           thee: thou shalt not see evil any more.36:003:016 In that day it shall be said to Jerusalem, Fearthou not: and           to Zion, Let not thine hands be slack.36:003:017 The LORD thy God in the midst of thee ismighty; he will save,           he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his,evol           he will joy over thee with singing.36:003:018 I will gather them that are sorrowful for thesolemn assembly,           who are of thee, to whom the reproach of it was aburden.36:003:019 Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflictthee: and I           will save her that halteth, and gather her that wasdriven           out; and I will get them praise and fame in everyland where           they have been put to shame.36:003:020 At that time will I bring you again, even in thetime that I           gather you: for I will make you a name and a praiseamong all           people of the earth, when I turn back your captivitybefore
