Evil men plot against the godly
If you have done foolishly by exalting yourself
you must do to him what he had intended to do to the accused. In this way you will purge
You have scrutinized my inner motives;
For I hear what so many are saying,
Because of this the land will mourn and the sky above will grow black.
“For the Lord who rules over all says, ‘As I had planned to hurt
so, to the contrary, I have planned in these days to do good to Jerusalem and Judah – do not fear!
And the Lord said, “If as one people all sharing a common language
Give the signal to attack Babylon’s wall!
ע (Ayin) The Lord has done what he planned; he has fulfilled
But have my words and statutes, which I commanded my servants the prophets, not outlived your fathers?
