30:1 Woe to the rebellious children, said ADONAI (יהוה), that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:
30:2 That walk to go down into Mitzrayim, and have not asked at my mouth; to strengthen themselves in the strength of Paroh , and to trust in the shadow of Mitzrayim!
30:3 Therefore shall the strength of Paroh be your shame, and the trust in the shadow of Mitzrayim [your] confusion.
30:4 For his princes were at Zoan, and his ambassadors came to Hanes.
30:5 They were all ashamed of a people [that] could not profit them, nor be an help nor profit, but a shame, and also a reproach.
30:6 The burden of the beasts of the south: into the eretz trouble and anguish, from whence [come] the young and old lion, the viper and fiery flying serpent, they will carry their riches upon the shoulders of young asses, and their treasures upon the bunches of camels, to a people [that] shall not profit [them].
30:7 For the Mitzrites shall help in vain, and to no purpose: therefore have I cried concerning this, Their strength [is] to sit still.
30:8 Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever:
30:9 That this [is] a rebellious people, lying children, children [that] will not hear the law of ADONAI (יהוה):
30:10 Which say to the seers, See not; and to the Neviim, Prophesy not to us right things, speak to us smooth things, prophesy deceits:
30:11 Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the set apart One of Yisrael to cease from before us.
30:12 Wherefore thus said the set apart One of Yisrael, Because you despise this word, and trust in oppression and perverseness, and stay thereon:
30:13 Therefore this iniquity shall be to you as a breach ready to fall, swelling out in a high wall, whose breaking comes suddenly at an instant.
30:14 And he shall break it as the breamelekh the potters' vessel that is broken in pieces; he shall not spare: so that there shall not be found in the bursting of it a sherd to take fire from the hearth, or to take water [withal] out of the pit.
30:15 For thus said Adon ADONAI (יהוה):,
"the set apart One of Yisrael; In returning and rest shall you be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and you would not.
30:16 But you said, No; for we will flee upon horses; therefore shall you flee: and, We will ride upon the swift; therefore shall they that pursue you be swift.
30:17 One thousand [shall flee] at the rebuke of one; at the rebuke of five shall you flee: till you be left as a beacon upon the top of a mountain, and as an ensign on an hill.
30:18 And therefore will ADONAI (יהוה) wait, that he may be gracious to you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for ADONAI (יהוה) [is] a Elohim (אלהים) of judgment: blessed [are] all they that wait for him.
30:19 For the people shall dwell in Tziyon at Yerushalayim: you shall weep no more: he will be very gracious to you at the voice of your cry; when he shall hear it, he will answer you.
30:20 And [though] ADONAI (יהוה) give you the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not your teachers be removed into a corner any more, but your eyes shall see your teachers:
30:21 And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, This [is] the way, walk you in it, when you turn to the right hand, and when you turn to the left.
30:22 You shall defile also the covering of your graven images of silver, and the ornament of your molten images of gold: you shall cast them away as a menstruous cloth; you shall say to it, Get you hence.
30:23 Then shall he give the rain of your seed, that you shall sow the ground withal; and bread of the increase of the earth, and it shall be fat and plenteous: b'Yom ha hu shall your cattle feed in large pastures.
30:24 The oxen likewise and the young asses that ear the ground shall eat clean provender, which has been winnowed with the shovel and with the fan.
30:25 And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers [and] streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall.
30:26 Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that ADONAI (יהוה) bindeth up the breach of His people, and heals the stroke of their wound.
30:27 Behold, the Name of ADONAI (יהוה) comes from far, burning [with] his anger, and the burden [thereof is] heavy: his lips are full of indignation, and his tongue as a devouring fire:
30:28 And his breath, as an overflowing stream, shall reach to the midst of the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of vanity: and [there shall be] a bridle in the jaws of the people, causing [them] to err.
30:29 Ye shall have a song, as in the night [when] a set apart solemnity is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goeth with a pipe to come into the mountain of ADONAI (יהוה), to the mighty One of Yisrael.
30:30 And ADONAI (יהוה) shall cause his glorious voice to be heard, and shall show the lighting down of his arm, with the indignation of [his] anger, and [with] the flame of a devouring fire, [with] scattering, and tempest, and hailstones.
30:31 For through the voice of ADONAI (יהוה) shall the Ashshur n be beaten down, [which] smote with a rod.
30:32 And [in] every place where the grounded staff shall pass, which ADONAI (יהוה) shall lay upon him, [it] shall be with tabrets and harps: and in battles of shaking will he fight with it.
30:33 For Tophet (תָּפְתֶּה) was established of old, Yes, for the king it is prepared. He has made it deep and large; Its pyre (מְדוּרָה) is fire with much wood; The breath of ADONAI (יהוה), like a stream of brimstone, Kindles (בָּעַר) it.
