Isaiah 66


66:1 Thus saith the LORD, The heaven [is] my throne, and the
 earth [is] my footstool: where [is] the house that ye build to
 me? and where [is] the place of my rest?
66:2 For all these [things] hath my hand made, and all these
 [things] have been, saith the LORD: but to this man [will] I
 look, [even] to [him that is] poor and of a contrite spirit,
 and trembleth at my word.
66:3 He that killeth an ox [is as if] he slew a man; he that
 sacrificeth a lamb, [as if] he cut off a dog's neck; he that
 offereth an oblation, [as if he offered] swine's blood; he that
 burneth incense, [as if] he blessed an idol. Yes, they have
 chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their
 abominations.
66:4 I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their
 fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I
 spoke, they did not hear: but they did evil before my eyes, and
 chose [that] in which I delighted not.
66:5 Hear the word of the LORD, ye that tremble at his word;
 Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name's
 sake, said, Let the LORD be glorified: but he shall appear to
 your joy, and they shall be ashamed.
66:6 A voice of noise from the city, a voice from the temple, a
 voice of the LORD that rendereth recompense to his enemies.
66:7 Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain
 came, she was delivered of a male child.
66:8 Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things?
 shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? [or] shall a
 nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she
 brought forth her children.
66:9 Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth?
 saith the LORD: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut [the
 womb]? saith thy God.
66:10 Rejoice ye with Jerusalem, and be glad with her, all ye
 that love her: rejoice for joy with her, all ye that mourn for
 her:
66:11 That ye may suck, and be satisfied with the breasts of her
 consolations; that ye may draw milk, and be delighted with the
 abundance of her glory.
66:12 For thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will extend peace to
 her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing
 stream: then shall ye suck, ye shall be borne upon [her] sides,
 and be dandled upon [her] knees.
66:13 As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you;
 and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem.
66:14 And when ye see [this], your heart shall rejoice, and your
 bones shall flourish like an herb: and the hand of the LORD
 shall be known towards his servants, and [his] indignation
 towards his enemies.
66:15 For behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his
 chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and
 his rebuke with flames of fire.
66:16 For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all
 flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many.
66:17 They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in
 the gardens behind one [tree] in the midst, eating swine's
 flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed
 together, saith the LORD.
66:18 For I [know] their works and their thoughts: it shall
 come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they
 shall come, and see my glory.
66:19 And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those
 that escape of them to the nations, [to] Tarshish, Pul, and
 Lud, that draw the bow, [to] Tubal, and Javan, [to] the isles
 afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my
 glory; and they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles.
66:20 And they shall bring all your brethren [for] an offering
 to the LORD out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots,
 and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts, to my
 holy mountain Jerusalem, saith the LORD, as the children of
 Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of
 the LORD.
66:21 And I will also take of them for priests [and] for
 Levites, saith the LORD.
66:22 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will
 make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your
 seed and your name remain.
66:23 And it shall come to pass, [that] from one new moon to
 another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come
 to worship before me, saith the LORD.
66:24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcasses of
 the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall
 not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall
 be an abhorring to all flesh.
