XCVI. GROUNDS OF HOPEFULNESS FOR THE RIGHTEOUS: WOES FOR THE WICKED.

XCVI

1Be hopeful, ye righteous; for suddenly shall the sinners perish before you,
And ye shall have lordship over them according to your desires.

2{And in the day of the tribulation of the sinners,
Your children shall mount and rise as eagles,
And higher than the vultures will be your nest,
And ye shall ascend and enter the crevices of the earth,
And the clefts of the rock for ever as coneys before the unrighteous,
And the sirens shall sigh because of you-and weep.}

3Wherefore fear not, ye that have suffered;
For healing shall be your portion,
And a bright light shall enlighten you,
And the voice of rest ye shall hear from heaven.

4Woe unto you, ye sinners, for your riches make you appear like the righteous,
But your hearts convict you of being sinners,
And this fact shall be a testimony against you for a memorial of [your] evil deeds.

5Woe to you who devour the finest of the wheat,
And drink wine in large bowls,
And tread under foot the lowly with your might.

6Woe to you who drink water from every fountain,
For suddenly shall ye be consumed and wither away,
Because ye have forsaken the fountain of life.

7Woe to you who work unrighteousness
And deceit and blasphemy:
It shall be a memorial against you for evil.

8Woe to you, ye mighty,
Who with might oppress the righteous;
For the day of your destruction is coming.

In those days many and good days shall come to the righteous -in the day of your judgement.

 

95

95:1 Wait in hope, you righteous; for suddenly shall sinners perish from before you, and you shall exercise dominion over them, according to your will.

95:2 In the day of the sufferings of sinners your offspring shall be elevated, and lifted up like eagles. Your nest shall be more exalted than that of the avest; you shall ascend, and enter into the cavities of the earth, and into the clefts of the rocks for ever, like conies, from the sight of the ungodly;

95:3 Who shall groan over you, and weep like sirens.

95:4 You shall not fear those who trouble you; for restoration shall be yours; a splendid light shall shine around you, and the voice of tranquility shall be heard from heaven. Woe to you, sinners; for your wealth makes you resemble saints, but your hearts reproach you, [knowing] that you are sinners. This word shall testify against you, for the remembrance of crime.

95:5 Woe to you who feed upon the glory of the corn, and drink the strength of the deepest spring, and in [the pride of] your power tread down the humble.

95:6 Woe to you who drink water at pleasure; for suddenly shall you be recompensed, consumed, and withered, because you have forsaken the foundation of life.

95:7 Woe to you who act iniquitously, fraudulently, and blasphemously; there shall be a remembrance against you for evil.

95:8 Woe to you, powerful, who with power strike down righteousness; for the day of your destruction shall come; [while] at that very time many and good days shall be the portion of the righteous, [even] at the period of your judgment.
