For I am the LORD: I will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall come to pass; it shall be no more prolonged: for in your days, O rebellious house, will I say the word, and will perform it, saith the Lord GOD.
For I am the LORD; I will speak the word that I will speak, and it will be performed. It will no longer be delayed, but in your days, O rebellious house, I will speak the word and perform it, declares the Lord GOD."
For I [am] the Lord: I will speak
A sovereign Being, immutable and eternal; who will speak by his
prophets what is his mind and will shall be done: and the
word that I shall speak shall come to pass;
the word of prophecy delivered out in his nature by the true
prophets never fails, but is always accomplished; as that was
which respected the siege or Jerusalem, and captivity of the
Jews: it shall be no more prolonged:
the judgment threatened shall be inflicted, and that in a very
short time: for in your days, O rebellious
while they were living; which they hoped would never be, at least
not till after their death; whereas, within live or six years
after this, all came to pass: will I say the word, and will
perform it, saith the Lord God of hosts;
not only the prophecy of their ruin should be given out in their
days, but accomplished in that time; which they might depend
upon, since he who said it is the mighty God, the Lord of armies
in heaven and in earth.
