Deuteronomy 28:1-68

1 "Indeed, if you diligently obey the LORD your God to carry out all his commands that I'm giving you today, then the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. 2 Moreover, all these blessings will come upon you in abundance, if you obey the LORD your God: 3 "Blessed shall you be in the city and blessed shall you be in the country. 4 "Blessed shall your children be, as well as the produce of your land, the offspring of your beasts and cattle, and the offspring of your flock. 5 "Blessed shall be your grain basket and your kneading bowl. 6 "Blessed shall you be in your comings and goings." 7 "The LORD will make your enemies, who rise against you and attack from one direction, to flee from you in seven directions. 8 "The LORD will send blessings for you with regard to your barns and everything you undertake. Indeed, he will bless you in the land that the LORD your God is about to give you. 9 "The LORD will assign you to be a holy people for himself, just as he promised you, as long as you keep his commands and walk in his ways. 10 "Then all the people of the earth will observe that the name of the LORD is proclaimed among you, and they will fear you. 11 "The LORD will show his abundant goodness with respect to your children, the offspring of your animals, and the produce of your farmland that he promised your ancestors he would give you. 12 "The LORD will open his rich treasury, the heavens, to release rain upon your land in season and bless everything you undertake so that you'll lend to many nations but won't borrow. 13 "The LORD your God will make you the head and not the tail {— } placing you above and not beneath {— } if you obey the commands of the LORD your God that I'm giving you today to keep and observe. 14 Do not deviate from any of his commands that I'm giving you today {— } neither to the right nor the left {— } to follow and serve other gods." 15 "But if you don't obey the LORD your God and faithfully carry out all his commands and statutes that I'm giving you today, then all these curses will come upon you and overwhelm you. 16 "Cursed shall you be in the city and cursed shall you be in the country. 17 "Cursed shall be your grain basket and your kneading bowl. 18 "Cursed shall your children be, as well as the produce of your land, the offspring of your beasts and cattle, and the offspring of your flock. 19 "Cursed shall you be in your comings and goings." 20 "The LORD will send the curse among you, will confuse you, and will rebuke you in everything you undertake until you are destroyed and perish quickly because of your evil deeds, since you will have forsaken him. 21 The LORD will cause you to be ill with long-lasting diseases until you are wiped out from the land that you are entering to possess. 22 The LORD will afflict you with tuberculosis, fever, inflammation, high fever, drought, blight, and mildew. These will attack you until you are completely destroyed. 23 The sky above your head will become bronze while the ground beneath you will become iron. 24 The LORD will change the rain on your land to powder and dust. It will come down from the sky until you are exterminated." 25 "The LORD will cause you to be defeated by your enemies. You'll go out against them in one direction, but you'll flee from them in seven directions. Consequently, you'll be in a state of great terror throughout all the kingdoms of the earth. 26 Your dead bodies will be food for the birds of the sky and the wild animals of the earth, with no one to chase them away. 27 "The LORD will afflict you with the boils of Egypt, with tumors, skin disease, and festering rashes, and none of them will be curable. 28 The LORD will afflict you with insanity, blindness, and mental confusion. 29 As a result, you'll wander aimlessly in broad daylight just as a blind person wanders in darkness. You won't prosper in life. Instead you'll be oppressed and plundered all day long, with no deliverer. 30 You'll be engaged to a woman, but another man will rape her. You'll build a house but you won't live in it. You'll plant a vineyard but you won't harvest it. 31 Your ox will be slaughtered in front of you, and you won't be able to eat it. Your donkey will be stolen from you while you watch and won't be returned to you. Your flock of sheep will be handed to your enemies and there will be no deliverer. 32 Your sons and daughters will be given to another people while you watch, and you won't be able to approach them at all, and you'll be powerless to help. 33 A people whom you don't know will devour what your land and labor produces. You'll be only oppressed and discouraged continually 34 until you are driven insane from what your eyes will see. 35 "The LORD will inflict you with incurable boils on your knees and legs, and from the sole of your foot to the top of your head. 36 "The LORD will banish you and your king whom you will appoint over you to go to a nation that neither you nor your ancestors have known, and there you'll serve other gods of wood and stone. 37 You'll become a desolation and a proverb, and you'll be mocked among the people where the LORD will drive you." 38 "You'll plant many seeds in a field, but your harvest will be small because the locust will consume it. 39 You'll plant a vineyard, but you won't drink wine or harvest any grapes, because worms will consume it. 40 You'll have olive trees throughout your territory, but you won't be able to anoint yourself with oil, because the olives will drop off the trees. 41 You'll bear sons and daughters, but they won't belong to you, because they'll go into captivity. 42 Whirling locusts will consume every tree and the produce of your land. 43 The foreigner in your midst will be elevated higher and higher over you, while you are brought low little by little. 44 He will lend to you, but you won't lend to him. He'll be the head, but you'll be the tail. 45 All these curses will come upon you and will overwhelm you until you are exterminated, because you didn't obey the LORD your God to keep his commands and statutes, which he had commanded you. 46 These curses will serve as a sign and wonder for you and your descendants as long as you live." 47 "Because you didn't serve the LORD your God joyfully and wholeheartedly, despite the abundance of everything you have, 48 you'll serve your enemies whom the LORD your God will send against you. You will serve in famine and in drought, in nakedness, and in lack of everything. They'll set a yoke of iron upon your neck until they have exterminated you. 49 "The LORD will raise a distant nation against you from the other side of the earth. Swooping down like a vulture, 50 it will be a nation whose language you don't understand, whose stern appearance neither shows regard nor extends grace to anyone whether old or young. 51 Its army will consume the offspring of your animals and the produce of your soil until you are exterminated. They will leave you without your grain, wine, oil, the increase of your cattle, and the lamb of your flock, until you are completely destroyed. 52 They'll besiege all your cities until your high and fortified walls in which you have trusted collapse throughout the land. Indeed, they will besiege all your cities, which the LORD your God gave you. 53 "You'll eat your own children {— } the flesh of your sons and daughters, whom the Lord your God gave you {— } on account of the siege and the distress with which your enemy will oppress you. 54 Even the compassionate man among you {— } the very sensitive one {— } will look with evil in his eyes toward his brother, his beloved wife, and his surviving sons, whom he spared. 55 He will withhold from each of them the flesh of his sons that he is eating {— } since there will be nothing left {— } on account of the siege and distress with which your enemy will oppress you in all your cities. 56 The most tender and sensitive lady among you, who doesn't venture to touch the soles of her feet to the ground on account of her daintiness, will look with hostility in her eyes against her beloved husband, her sons, and her daughters. 57 She will eat her afterbirth and her newborn children secretly {— } since there will be nothing left {— } on account of the siege and distress with which your enemy will oppress you in your cities." 58 "If you aren't careful to observe all the words of this Law that have been written in this book, instructing you to fear this glorious and awesome name of the LORD your God 59 then he will inflict extraordinary plagues on you and your children, great and lasting plagues, and severe and lasting illnesses. 60 He will inflict on you all the diseases of Egypt that you dreaded, and they won't be curable. 61 Moreover, the LORD will inflict you with illnesses and plagues that were not written in this book of the Law, until you are exterminated. 62 Because you will not have obeyed the LORD your God, very few of you will be left {— } instead of you being as numerous as the stars in the heavens. 63 Just as the LORD delighted to prosper and increase you, so now the LORD will delight to destroy, exterminate, and banish you from the land that you are about to enter to possess." 64 "He'll scatter you among the peoples from one end of the earth to the other, and there you'll serve other gods made of wood and stones, which neither you nor your ancestors have known. 65 Among those nations you'll have no rest. There'll be no resting place for the soles of your feet. Instead, the LORD will give you an anxious heart, failing eyesight, and a despairing spirit. 66 You'll cling to life, being fearful by both night and day, with no assurance of survival. 67 In the morning you'll say, 'I wish it were evening.' Yet in the evening you'll say, "I wish it were morning," on account of what you'll dread and what you'll see. 68 Finally, the LORD will bring you back to Egypt by ship, a place that I said you'll never see again. There you'll try to sell yourselves to your enemies as male and female slaves, but no one will buy you."

Judges 3:4

4 They remained there to test Israel, to reveal if they would obey the commands of the LORD that he issued to their ancestors through Moses.

Nehemiah 4:7-8

7 But when Sanballat, Tobiah, the Arabs, the Ammonites, and the Ashdodites heard that the repair work on the Jerusalem wall was progressing and that its breaches were being repaired, they flew into a rage. 8 So they all conspired together to invade and fight against Jerusalem, creating confusion there.

Ezekiel 38:1-23

1 The word of the LORD came to me: 2 "Human son, turn your gaze to look at Gog of the land of Magog, the chief noble of Meshech, and Tubal. Prophesy against him. 3 Tell him, 'This is what the Lord GOD says: "Look, I'm against you, O Gog, chief noble of Rosh, Meshech, and Tubal. 4 I'll turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and bring you out {— } you and your whole army {— } horses and cavalry riders, all of them richly attired, a magnificent company replete with buckler and shield, and all of them wielding battle swords. 5 Persia, Cush, and Put accompany them, all of them equipped with shields and helmets, 6 Gomer with all its troops, the household of Togarmah from the remotest parts of the north with all its troops {— } many people with you. 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23

Matthew 24:1-51

1 As Jesus left the temple and was walking away, his disciples came up to him to point out to him the temple buildings. 2 But he said to them, "You see all these things, don't you? I tell you with certainty, there isn't a single stone here that will be left standing on top of another. They will all be torn down." 3 While Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately and said, "Tell us, when will these things take place, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?" 4 Jesus answered them, "See to it that no one deceives you, 5 because many will come in my name and say, 'I am the Messiah,' and they will deceive many people. 6 You are going to hear of wars and rumors of wars. See to it that you are not alarmed. These things must take place, but the end hasn't come yet, 7 because nation will rise up in arms against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8 But all these things are only the beginning of the birth pains." 9 "Then they will hand you over to suffer and will kill you, and you will be hated by all the nations because of my name. 10 Then many people will fall away, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 Many false prophets will appear and deceive many people, 12 and because lawlessness will increase, the love of many people will grow cold. 13 But the person who endures to the end will be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come." 15 "So when you see the destructive desecration, mentioned by the prophet Daniel, standing in the Holy Place " (let the reader take note), 16 then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains. 17 Anyone who's on the housetop must not come down to get what is in his house, 18 and anyone who's in the field must not turn back to get his coat. 19 "How terrible it will be for women who are pregnant or who are nursing babies in those days! 20 Pray that it may not be in winter or on a Sabbath when you flee, 21 because at that time there will be great suffering, the kind that has not happened from the beginning of the world until now and certainly will never happen again. 22 If those days had not been limited, no one would survive. But for the sake of the elect, those days will be limited. 23 "At that time, if anyone says to you, 'Look! Here is the Messiah!' or 'There he is!', don't believe it, 24 because false messiahs and false prophets will appear and display great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 Remember, I have told you this beforehand. 26 So if they say to you, 'Look! He's in the wilderness,' don't go out looking for him. And if they say, 'Look! He's in the storeroom,' don't believe it, 27 because just as the lightning comes from the east and flashes as far as the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 28 Wherever there's a corpse, there the vultures will gather." 29 "Immediately after the suffering of those days, 'The sun will be darkened, the moon will not give its light, the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of heaven will be shaken loose.' 30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all 'the tribes of the land will mourn' when they see 'the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven' with power and great glory. 31 He will send out his angels with a loud trumpet blast, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to another." 32 "Now learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its branches become tender and it produces leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 In the same way, when you see all these things, you will know that the Son of Man is near, right at the door. 34 I tell you with certainty, this generation will not disappear until these things happen. 35 Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will never disappear." 36 "No one knows when that day or hour will come {— not the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father,} 37 because just as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be when the Son of Man comes. 38 In those days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage right up to the day when Noah went into the ark. 39 They were unaware of what was happening until the flood came and swept all of them away. That's how it will be when the Son of Man comes. 40 At that time two people will be in the field. One will be taken, and the other will be left behind. 41 Two women will be grinding grain at the mill. One will be taken, and the other will be left behind. 42 "So keep on watching, because you don't know on what day your Lord is coming. 43 But be sure of this: if the owner of the house had known when during the night the thief would be coming, he would have stayed awake and not allowed his house to be broken into. 44 So you, too, must be ready, because at an hour you are not expecting him the Son of Man will come." 45 "Who, then, is the faithful and wise servant whom his master has put in charge of his household to give the others their food at the right time? 46 How blessed is that servant whom his master finds doing this when he comes! 47 I tell you with certainty, he will put him in charge of all his property. 48 "But if that wicked servant says to himself, 'My master has been delayed,' 49 and begins to beat his fellow servants and eat and drink with the drunks, 50 the master of that servant will come on a day when he doesn't expect him and at an hour that he doesn't know. 51 Then his master will punish him severely and assign him a place with the hypocrites. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth."

Amos 9:7

7 "Aren't you people of Israel like the people of Cush to me?" declares the LORD. "I brought Israel up from the land of Egypt, did I not, as well as the Philistines from Caphtor and the Arameans from Kir?

Exodus 3:8

8 so I have come down to deliver them from their domination by the Egyptians and to bring them out of that land to a good and spacious land, a land flowing with milk and honey, to the territory of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites.

Judges 2:3

3 Therefore I'm now saying, 'I won't expel them before you. Instead, they'll remain at your side, and their gods will ensnare you.'"

Joshua 13:1-5

1 When Joshua had grown old, having lived many years, the LORD said to him, "You are old and have lived many years, but much of the land still remains to be possessed. 2 This territory remains: all of the Philistine regions, including all Geshurite holdings 3 from the Shihor east of Egypt as far as the border of Ekron on the north (which is considered part of Canaan). This includes the five rulers of the Philistines: the Gazites, the Ashdodites, the Ashkelonites, the Gittites, the Ekronites, and the Avvites. 4 "To the south, there remains to be conquered all the territory held by the Canaanites, Mearah that belongs to the Sidonians, as far as Aphek, to the border of the Amorites, 5 including the territory of the Gebalites and all of Lebanon facing the east from Baal-gad at the foot of Mount Hermon as far as Lebo-hamath,

Ezekiel 36:1-38

Zechariah 12:1-6

1 A declaration: the word of the LORD to Israel. The LORD, who stretches out the heavens, who lays the foundation of the earth, and who frames the spirit of man within himself, declares, 2 "Look, I am making Jerusalem an unstable cup toward all of its surrounding armies when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. 3 It will come about at that time that I will make Jerusalem a heavy weight; so everyone who burdens themselves with it will be crushed, even though all of the nations of the earth gather themselves against it. 4 At that time," declares the LORD, "I will strike every horse with panic and every rider with insanity. I will keep my eyes on the house of Judah, but I will blind every horse of the invading armies. 5 "The leaders of Judah will say to themselves, 'Those who live in Jerusalem are my strength through the LORD of the Heavenly Armies, their God. 6 At that time I will make the leaders of Judah like a brazier filled with blazing wood, or like a torch setting fire to harvested grain. They will devour all the invading armies, both on the right hand and on the left. As a result, Jerusalem will again be inhabited in its rightful place {— } as the real Jerusalem.
