Bible: Isaiah 65:8-12
65:8 This is what the
“When 1 juice is discovered in a cluster of grapes,
someone says, ‘Don’t destroy it, for it contains juice.’ 2
So I will do for the sake of my servants –
I will not destroy everyone. 3
65:9 I will bring forth descendants from Jacob,
and from Judah people to take possession of my mountains.
My chosen ones will take possession of the land; 4
my servants will live there.
65:10 Sharon 5 will become a pasture for sheep,
they will belong to my people, who seek me. 8
65:11 But as for you who abandon the
and forget about worshiping at 9 my holy mountain,
who prepare a feast for the god called ‘Fortune,’ 10
and fill up wine jugs for the god called ‘Destiny’ 11 –
65:12 I predestine you to die by the sword, 12
all of you will kneel down at the slaughtering block, 13
because I called to you, and you did not respond,
I spoke and you did not listen.
You did evil before me; 14
you chose to do what displeases me.”
