Redemption

284

“Give ear, O heavens, and I will speak;
And hear, O earth, the words of my mouth.
Let my teaching drop as the rain,
My speech distill as the dew,
As raindrops on the tender herb,
And as showers on the grass.
For I proclaim the name of the Lord:
Ascribe greatness to our God.
He is the Rock, His work is perfect;
For all His ways are justice,
A God of truth and without injustice;
Righteous and upright is He.

“They have corrupted themselves;
They are not His children,
Because of their blemish:
A perverse and crooked generation.
Do you thus deal with the Lord,
O foolish and unwise people?
Is He not your Father, who bought you?
Has He not made you and established you?

“Remember the days of old,
Consider the years of many generations.
Ask your father, and he will show you;
Your elders, and they will tell you:
When the Most High divided their inheritance to the nations,
When He separated the sons of Adam,
He set the boundaries of the peoples
According to the number of the children of Israel.
For the Lord’s portion is His people;
Jacob is the place of His inheritance.

10 “He found him in a desert land
And in the wasteland, a howling wilderness;
He encircled him, He instructed him,
He kept him as the apple of His eye.
11 As an eagle stirs up its nest,
Hovers over its young,
Spreading out its wings, taking them up,
Carrying them on its wings,
12 So the Lord alone led him,
And there was no foreign god with him.

13 “He made him ride in the heights of the earth,
That he might eat the produce of the fields;
He made him draw honey from the rock,
And oil from the flinty rock;
14 Curds from the cattle, and milk of the flock,
With fat of lambs;
And rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats,
With the choicest wheat;
And you drank wine, the blood of the grapes.

15 “But Jeshurun grew fat and kicked;
You grew fat, you grew thick,
You are obese!
Then he forsook God who made him,
And scornfully esteemed the Rock of his salvation.
16 They provoked Him to jealousy with foreign gods;
With abominations they provoked Him to anger.
17 They sacrificed to demons, not to God,
To gods they did not know,
To new gods, new arrivals
That your fathers did not fear.
18 Of the Rock who begot you, you are unmindful,
And have forgotten the God who fathered you.

19 “And when the Lord saw it, He spurned them,
Because of the provocation of His sons and His daughters.
20 And He said: ‘I will hide My face from them,
I will see what their end will be,
For they are a perverse generation,
Children in whom is no faith.
21 They have provoked Me to jealousy by what is not God;
They have moved Me to anger by their foolish idols.
But I will provoke them to jealousy by those who are not a nation;
I will move them to anger by a foolish nation.
22 For a fire is kindled in My anger,
And shall burn to the lowest hell;
It shall consume the earth with her increase,
And set on fire the foundations of the mountains.

23 ‘I will heap disasters on them;
I will spend My arrows on them.
24 They shall be wasted with hunger,
Devoured by pestilence and bitter destruction;
I will also send against them the teeth of beasts,
With the poison of serpents of the dust.
25 The sword shall destroy outside;
There shall be terror within
For the young man and virgin,
The nursing child with the man of gray hairs.
26 I would have said, “I will dash them in pieces,
I will make the memory of them to cease from among men,”
27 Had I not feared the wrath of the enemy,
Lest their adversaries should misunderstand,
Lest they should say, “Our hand is high;
And it is not the Lord who has done all this.” ’

28 “For they are a nation void of counsel,
Nor is there any understanding in them.
29 Oh, that they were wise, that they understood this,
That they would consider their latter end!
30 How could one chase a thousand,
And two put ten thousand to flight,
Unless their Rock had sold them,
And the Lord had surrendered them?
31 For their rock is not like our Rock,
Even our enemies themselves being judges.
32 For their vine is of the vine of Sodom
And of the fields of Gomorrah;
Their grapes are grapes of gall,
Their clusters are bitter.
33 Their wine is the poison of serpents,
And the cruel venom of cobras.

34 Is this not laid up in store with Me,
Sealed up among My treasures?
35 Vengeance is Mine, and recompense;
Their foot shall slip in due time;
For the day of their calamity is at hand,
And the things to come hasten upon them.’

36 “For the Lord will judge His people
And have compassion on His servants,
When He sees that their power is gone,
And there is no one remaining, bond or free.
37 He will say: ‘Where are their gods,
The rock in which they sought refuge?
38 Who ate the fat of their sacrifices,
And drank the wine of their drink offering?
Let them rise and help you,
And be your refuge.

39 ‘Now see that I, even I, am He,
And there is no God besides Me;
I kill and I make alive;
I wound and I heal;
Nor is there any who can deliver from My hand.
40 For I raise My hand to heaven,
And say, “As I live forever,
41 If I whet My glittering sword,
And My hand takes hold on judgment,
I will render vengeance to My enemies,
And repay those who hate Me.
42 I will make My arrows drunk with blood,
And My sword shall devour flesh,
With the blood of the slain and the captives,
From the heads of the leaders of the enemy.” ’

43 “Rejoice, O Gentiles, with His people;
For He will avenge the blood of His servants,
And render vengeance to His adversaries;
He will provide atonement for His land and His people.”

Come Lord and avenge us against our enemies who rule from on high over your people! Avenge us of ther lies, and their ursury, and their lust for blood and human flesh. Avenge us Mashiach with your Torah, your word, and have mercy upon your people caught in their wicked snares and schemes.

Foil all their schemes who claim to be of your people and are not. Remove from their hand the land which you have granted to us forever! Have mercy upon your people O Lord of Hosts who has given unto us HaMashiach in whom we have rejected!

Have mercy upon us YHWH in whom your people have forgotten your name and ascribe you titles. For they lie with lying lips who cloak your name in titles – for your name has been removed from their lips! You have rejected them says the Lord!

Have mercy upon us, your people O Lord! In you we trust for our deliverance and find rest!

Have mercy and remember Your Word and your everlasting covenants.

Let their schemes be turned upon their own heads, let them fall in the traps they have laid who destroy your people and the people of the world.

Let the leaders of the people, if they do not serve you, let them be removed and cast down according to your will my God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

For they march about as angry beasts to devour in their madness for their rejection of your Mashiach. Have mercy God of our Fathers, known to us generation to generation by only your mercy and love.

Let not any man or woman claim to be of you, who knows you not – let them not know your name! Let them not know how to say your name! Let their words be boulders of confusion within their minds. Let them not understand anything of logic that they may be dashed by their own confusion and judgment.

Have mercy on your people O Lord and deliver us from the foul deceptions of the enemy who destroy your people Israel and the ends of the earth.

Take vengeance for us O Lord and remember the day of the rejection of Mashiach and cleanse the land of all those who reject you.

Praise be to your name forever and ever YHWH and to your Mashiach who they have given many names, Eashoa, Yeshua, Jesus! Let those who have deceived your people to reject HaMashiach, let them have two choices: receive salvation through the name in which they reject, or be cast out forever, cast out from your glory and your Temple, and your Holy City.

Have mercy on their ignorance O Lord and take vengeance on those who deceive them. Let those who deceived your people and cursed our nation, let them be forever outside of your Holy veil, let them not enter, but remain outside as the dogs.

Let all who see them say, “These are they which rejected HaMashiach and are forever cast out,”

Come Adonai, for the bride awaits!
