A Believing Remnant

9 "1Be broken, O peoples, and be a2shattered; And give ear, all remote places of the earth. Gird yourselves, yet be bshattered; Gird yourselves, yet be cshattered. 10 "3Devise a plan, but it will be thwarted; State a dproposal, but 4it will not stand, For e5God is with us." 11 For thus the LORD spoke to me fwith 6mighty power and instructed me 7not to walk in the way of this people, saying, 12 "You are not to say, 'It is a 8conspiracy!' In regard to all that this people call a conspiracy, And 9you are not to fear gwhat they fear or be in dread of it. 13 "It is the 10LORD of hosts 11whom you should regard as holy. And He shall be your fear, And He shall be your dread. 14 "Then He shall become a 12sanctuary; But to both the houses of Israel, a 13stone to strike and a rock to stumble over, And a snare and a 14trap for the inhabitants of Jerusalem. 15 "Many 15will stumble over them, Then they will fall and be broken; They will even be snared and caught." 16 16Bind up the testimony, 17seal the hlaw among 18my disciples. 17 And I will 19wait for the LORD 20who is hiding His face from the house of Jacob; I will even look eagerly for Him. 18 21Behold, I and the children whom the LORD has given me are for 22signs and wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, who 23dwells on Mount Zion. 19 When they say to you, "24Consult the mediums and the spiritists who whisper and mutter," should not a people 25consult their God? Should they 26consult the dead on behalf of the living? 20 To the i27law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because 28they have no dawn. 21 They will pass through jthe land 29hard-pressed and famished, and it will turn out that when they are hungry, they will be enraged and curse ktheir king and their God as they face upward. 22 Then they will 30look to the earth, and behold, distress and darkness, the gloom of anguish; and they will be 31driven away into darkness.
