"Through your servants you have reproached the Lord, And you have said, 'With my many chariots I came up to the heights of the mountains, To the remotest parts of Lebanon ; And I cut down its tall cedars and its choice cypresses. And I will go to its highest peak, its thickest forest.
Lift up your eyes on high And see who has created these stars, The One who leads forth their host by number, He calls them all by name ; Because of the greatness of His might and the strength of His power, Not one of them is missing.
"But these two things will come on you suddenly in one day : Loss of children and widowhood. They will come on you in full measure In spite of your many sorceries, In spite of the great power of your spells.
"Stand fast now in your spells And in your many sorceries With which you have labored from your youth ; Perhaps you will be able to profit, Perhaps you may cause trembling.
"You are wearied with your many counsels ; Let now the astrologers , Those who prophesy by the stars, Those who predict by the new moons, Stand up and save you from what will come upon you.
Who is this who comes from Edom, With garments of glowing colors from Bozrah, This One who is majestic in His apparel, Marching in the greatness of His strength ? "It is I who speak in righteousness, mighty to save."
I shall make mention of the lovingkindnesses of the LORD, the praises of the LORD, According to all that the LORD has granted us, And the great goodness toward the house of Israel, Which He has granted them according to His compassion And according to the abundance of His lovingkindnesses.
