Israel Assured of God's Help
1 Keep silence before me, O islands, and let the people renew their strength; let them come near, and let them speak; let us come together into judgment.
2 Who raised up justice from the East, and called him to his foot? And gave the nations before him, and subdued the Kings? He gave them as dust to his sword, and as scattered stubble unto his bow.
3 He pursued them, and passed safely by the way that he had not gone with his feet.
4 Who hath wrought and done it? He that calleth the generations from the beginning. I the LORD am the first, and with the last I am the same.
5 The isles saw it, and did fear, and the ends of the earth were abashed, drew near, and came.
6 Every man helped his neighbor, and said to his brother, Be strong.
7 So the workman comforted the founder, and he that smote with the hammer, him that smote by course, saying, It is ready for the soldering, and he fastened it with nails that it should not be moved.
8 But thou, Israel, art my servant, and thou Jacob, whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend.
9 For I have taken thee from the ends of the earth, and called thee before the chief thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my servant, I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away.
10 Fear thou not, for I am with thee; be not afraid, for I am thy God; I will strengthen thee, and help thee, and will sustain thee with the right hand of my justice.
11 Behold, all they that provoke thee, shall be ashamed, and confounded; they shall be as nothing, and they that strive with thee, shall perish.
12 Thou shalt seek them and shalt not find them, to wit, the men of thy strife, for they shall be as nothing, and the men that war against thee, as a thing of nought.
13 For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not, I will help thee.
14 Fear not, thou worm, Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith the LORD and thy redeemer the holy one of Israel.
15 Behold, I will make thee a roller, and a new threshing instrument having teeth; thou shalt thresh the mountains, and bring them to powder, and shalt make the hills as chaff.
16 Thou shalt fan them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind shall scatter them; and thou shalt rejoice in the LORD, and shalt glory in the holy one of Israel.
17 When the poor and the needy seek water, and there is none (their tongue faileth for thirst; I the LORD will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them.)
18 I will open rivers in the tops of the hills, and fountains in the midst of the valleys; I will make the wilderness as a pool of water, and the waste land as springs of water.
19 I will set in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle tree, and the pine tree, and I will set in the wilderness the fir tree, the elm and the box tree together.
20 Therefore let them see and know, and let them consider and understand together that the hand of the LORD hath done this, and the holy one of Israel hath created it.
1 Corinthians 14:8
And also if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to battle?
"Let not Geneva be forgotten or despised. Religious liberty owes it most respect." John Adams, the second president of the United States
Before, and many years after the KJV was printed, the GENEVA BIBLE was the People's Choice, but an ungodly King made it illegal to publish it any longer: http://www.genevabible.org/Geneva.html Click on "Geneva Bible History" on my site.Yahoo Group Owner
