Isaiah 11:1-16

1 But there shall come forth a shoot from the stock of Jesse,—And, a sprout from his roots, shall bear fruit; And the spirit of Yahweh shall rest upon him,— 2 The spirit of wisdom and understanding, The spirit of counsel and might, The spirit of knowledge and reverence of Yahweh; 3 So will he find fragrance, in the reverence of Yahweh, And not, by the sight of his eyes, will he judge, Nor by the hearing of his ears, will he decide; 4 But he will judge with righteousness! them who are poor, And decide with equity! for the oppressed of the land,—And he will smite the land With the sceptre of his mouth, And with the breath of his lips, will he slay the lawless one; 5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins,—And faithfulness the girdle of his reins; 6 And the wolf shall dwell with the lamb, And, the leopard, with the kid, shall lie down,—And the calf and the young lion and the fatling—together, With, a little child, leading them; 7 And the cow, with the bear shall find pasture, Together, shall their young ones, lie down,—And, the lion, like the ox, shall eat straw; 8 And the sucking child shall caress over the hole of the asp, Yea over the vipers den, hath the weaned child stretched out his hand: 9 They shall not hurt—nor destroy, in all my holy mountain,—For filled is the land with the knowledge of Yahweh, As the waters, to the sea, form a covering. 10 And there shall come to be, in that day, A root of Jesse, which shall be standing as an ensign of peoples, Unto him, shall nations seek,—And, his resting-place, shall be, glorious. 11 And it shall come to pass in that day, That My Lord will again a second time set his hand, to possess himself of the remnant of his people,—who shall be left—from Assyria and from Egypt and from Pathros and from Ethiopia and from Elam and from Shinar and from Hamath and from the Coastlands of the sea; 12 And he will lift up a standard to the nations, And will gather the outcasts of Israel,—And the dispersed of Judah, will he collect, From the four corners of the earth. 13 And the envy of Ephraim shall be removed, And the vexatious doings of Judah, shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah, shall not vex Ephraim; 14 But they shall fly on the wing of the Philistines in the west, Together, shall they make prey of the sons of the east,—On Edom and Moab, putting forth their hand, With the sons of Ammon hearkening unto them. 15 And Yahweh, will devote to destruction, the gulf of the Egyptian sea, And will brandish his hand against the River [="Euphrates"], in the full force of his spirit,—And will smite it in the seven streams And cause a marching through in sandals, 16 So shall there be a highway for the remnant of his people who shall be left out of Assyria,—Like as it was to Israel, in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt!

Isaiah 18:7

7 In that time, shall there be borne along. As a present unto Yahweh of hosts A people drawn out and polished, Even from a people terrible from their beginning and onwards,—nation most mighty and subduing Whose land rivers, have cut through, Unto the place of the Name of Yahweh of hosts. Mount Zion.

Zechariah 14:8-21

8 And it shall come to pass, in that day, that there shall go forth living waters out of Jerusalem, half of them unto the sea before, and half of them unto the sea behind, in summer and in winter, shall it he. 9 So will Yahweh become king over all the earth,—In that day, shall there be one Yahweh, and, his Name, be one. 10 All the land shall turn into a plain, from Geba to Rimmon, south of Jerusalem,—and shall lift herself on high and abide in her own place, from the gate of Benjamin up to the place of the first gate, up to the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananeel up to the wine-presses of the king. 11 So shall men dwell therein, and, utter destruction, shall not be any more,—but Jerusalem, shall abide, in security. 12 And, this, shall be the plague wherewith Yahweh will plague all the peoples who have made war against Jerusalem,—his flesh, shall be made to rot, while he is standing upon his feet, and, his eyes, shall rot in their sockets, and, his tongue, shall rot in their mouth; 13 And it shall come to pass, in that day, that there shall be a great confusion from Yahweh among them,—and they will lay hold every one upon the hand of his neighbour, and his hand, will rise up, against the hand of his neighbour; 14 Moreover also, Judah, will fight with Jerusalem,—and the wealth of all the nations round about, shall be gathered together, gold and silver and apparel, in great abundance. 15 And, so, shall be the plague of the horse, the mule, the camel, and the ass, and all the beasts which shall be in those camps,—like this plague! 16 And it shall come to pass, that, as for every one that is left out of all the nations that came against Jerusalem, that they shall come up, from year to year, to bow down to the king, Yahweh of hosts, and to celebrate the festival of booths. 17 And it shall come to pass that—whoso shall not come up out of the families of the earth unto Jerusalem, to bow down to the king, Yahweh of hosts,—there shall not, on them, be any rain. 18 And, if the family of Egypt shall not come up, and shall not enter in, upon whom there falleth none, then shall smite them the plague wherewith Yahweh, did plague, the nations, because they came not up to celebrate the festival of booths. 19 This, shall be the punishment of Egypt,—and the punishment of all the nations, when they come not up to celebrate the festival of booths. 20 In that day, shall there be [inscribed] upon the bells of the horses, Holy unto Yahweh,—and the caldrons in the house of Yahweh shall be like the dashing bowls before the altar. 21 And every caldron in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be Holy unto Yahweh of hosts,—So shall all who are offering sacrifice, come in, and take of them, and boil therein,—Neither shall there be a merchant any more in the house of Yahweh of hosts, in that day.

Matthew 12:17-21

17 that it might be fulfilled, which was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying:— 18 Lo! my servant, whom I have chosen, My beloved, in whom, my soul, delighteth,—I will put my Spirit upon him, and, justice, unto the nations, will he report: 19 He will not strive, nor will he cry out, nor shall any hear, in the broadways, his voice: 20 A bruised cane, will he not break, and, a smoking wick, will he not quench,—until he urge on, justice, to victory, 21 And, in his name, shall nations hope.

6 And, as for the sons of the foreigner—Who have joined themselves unto Yahweh To wait upon him, and To love the name of Yahweh, To become his for servants,—Every one who keepeth the sabbath, lest he profane it. And who, layeth firm hold on my covenant, 7 Surely I will bring them into my holy mountain And make them joyful in my house of prayer, Their ascending-offerings and their sacrifices, being accepted upon mine altar,—For, my house, a house of prayer, shall be called, for all the peoples! 8 Declareth My Lord, Yahweh, Who is gathering the outcasts of Israel:—Yet others, will I gather unto him Besides his own gathered ones.

Acts 11:1-18

1 Now the Apostles and the brethren who were throughout Judaea heard that, the nations also, had welcomed the word of God. 2 And, when Peter came up unto Jerusalem, they of the circumcision began to find fault with him, 3 Saying—he went in unto men uncircumcised, and did eat with them. 4 But Peter, making a beginning, went on to set forth the matter unto them in order, saying— 5 I was in the city of Joppa praying, and saw in a trance, a vision:—coming down a sort of vessel, like a large sheet, by four corners, being let down out of heaven, and it came even unto me: 6 Into which steadfastly looking, began to observe, and saw the quadrupeds of the earth, and the wild beasts, and the creeping things, and the birds of heaven. 7 Moreover heard a voice also, saying unto me—Rise, Peter! slay and eat. 8 But I said—By no means, Lord, because, a common or unclean thing, hath at no time entered into my mouth. 9 And a voice answered, a second time, out of heaven—What things, God, hath cleansed, be not, thou, making common. 10 And, this, took place thrice,—and the whole was drawn up again into heaven; 11 And lo! immediately, three men halted at the house wherein we were, sent from Caesarea unto me. 12 And the Spirit bade me go with them, nothing doubting. And there went with me these six brethren also; and we entered into the house of the man, 13 And he related to us how he had seen the messenger in his house, standing, and saying—Send away unto Joppa, and fetch Simon, who is surnamed Peter; 14 Who shall speak words unto thee, whereby thou shall be saved, thou, and all thy house. 15 And, as I began to be speaking, the Holy Spirit fell upon them, just as upon us also at the beginning. 16 And I was put in mind of the word of the Lord, how he used to say—John, indeed, immersed with water; but, ye, shall be immersed in Holy Spirit. 17 If therefore the like free-gift God gave unto them, as even unto us, when we had believed upon the Lord Jesus Christ, who was, I, that could withstand God? 18 And, having heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying—Hence, even unto the nations, God hath granted repentance unto life.

1 Timothy 3:16

Acts 17:22-27

22 And Paul taking his stand in the midst of the Hill of Mars, said—Ye men of Athens! In every way, how unusually reverent of the demons ye are, I perceive. 23 For, passing through, and carefully observing your objects of devotion, I found an altar also, in which was inscribed—Unto an Unknown God. What, therefore, not knowing, ye reverence, the same, do, I, declare unto you. 24 The God that made the world and all things that are therein, the same, being, Lord, of heaven and earth, not in hand-made shrines, doth dwell, 25 nor, by human hands, is waited upon, as though in want of anything, himself, giving unto all life and breath and all things; 26 he made also, of one, every nation of men to dwell upon all the face of the earth,—marking out fitting opportunities, and the bounds of their dwelling place, 27 that they might be seeking God—if, after all, indeed, they might feel after him and find him,—although, in truth, he is already not far from any one of us.

Pure, am, I: henceforth, unto the nations, will I go.

Romans 9:22-30

22 And, if God—wishing to shew his anger and to make known his power—bare, in much patience, with vessels of anger already fitted for destruction, 23 In order that he might make known the riches of his glory upon vessels of mercy which he prepared beforehand for glory,— 24 Whom he also called, even us, not only from among Jews, but also from among the nations, [what then?] 25 As also in Hosea he saith—I will call the not-my-people, My people, and the not-beloved, beloved, 26 And it shall be—in the place where it was said [to them]—not my people are, ye! there, shall they be called—Sons of a Living God. 27 Isaiah, moreover, exclaimeth over Israel—Though the number of the sons of Israel be as the sand of the sea, the remnant, shall be saved; 28 For, a complete and concise account, will the Lord make upon the earth. 29 And, even as Isaiah hath before said,—If, the Lord of hosts, had not left us a seed, as Sodom, had we become, and, as Gomorrha, had we been made like. 30 What, then, shall we say? That, they of the nations, who were not in pursuit of righteousness, have laid hold of righteousness,—a righteousness, however, which is by faith;
