Wolves Coming Colorado II

No matter how many people go to Symposiums against wolves or for wolf management, leave comments on web site articles, hide on Facebook and cry like bitches, the Nation/State members of the U.N. are ALL still incrementally implementing the 1995 United Nations Environmental Policies and “Globall” Biodiversity Assessment which is the extended version of the 1992 Agenda 21 Charter which means Contract… Which means as long as they’re in charge your incompetent protesting against what they are intentionally doing to you is not going to stop. Time to stop following and believing in amateurs who are making non arguments against the case for REWILDING yet have never read the UNEP case book for REWILDING..

Wolves Coming Colorado

It’s interesting observing a certain group preaching how to stop wolf introduction into Colorado using the same arguments that failed Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Washington, Oregon..And this particular group speaks of education and coming together when they in fact are divisive, and ignore the international UNEP tome which has been in the states legislatures since 1995 setting up the infrastructure for the REWILDING process which includes the participation of protesting the progress of the UNEP tome itself.. What the wolf does is irrelevant when the so called teachers ignore the progress of the implementation of UNEP with no countering language to push back against the UNEP terminology. Thus because of the ignorance of the language and the process of implementation those implementing the UNEP REWILDING plan win hands down based on incompetent rebuttal {non compos mentis} which is legal silent acquiescence. Which is exactly the way the wolf intro went down in the states mentioned above.. . SWW is a limp dick..

Trump Isn’t Ending The Obama Nightmare

Obama’s change; Stop the war on terrorism started by Bush Clinton Bush.. oops… Repair the economy, oops… Get control of the large banks, oops… Repeal the Dodd-Frank Act and re-enact the Glass-Steagall Act.. Oops.. Ah, affordable health care a massive flop, oops, worst of all the first time in this countries history we are forced to buy a product and fined if we refuse.. The TSA and NSA were revealed to be spying on the citizens.. oops, and without any “probable cause” detailed in a sworn, signed and sealed affidavit by a government official and the subsequent issuance of a warrant by a judge. Oops… Trump must like this stuff because he has done NOTHING to put a stop to it…And as far as this great economy goes; My trade is still down a product stolen from the business by basically everyone, AND overhead and profit has been cut by 40% since 2007-8… And since 2010 the education and licensing for that trade has been compromised by; If you want to keep your licenses you must reeducate and pay more fees.. In other words you are required to take code book reading lessons once or twice annually to keep your license.Even though we passed four years of code book reading classes prior to receiving those licenses. All in the republican operated state of Idaho, which of course this is a national reeducation scam by every state now…  And the best part is the state cannot even hire competent code term smiths to enforce the code.. Recently I observed their experts calling legal work illegal and they enforced illegal code alterations as replacement before issuing certificates of approval.. This ended up before the administrative authority and guess what? Yours truly was found to be correctly interpreting the code.. In the meantime the alterations to non code compliance cost roughly $750.00.. And the tradesmen around me were scared to challenge the field expert and contact the Administrative authority.. This is definitely a nation of apathetic pathetic pussies..

The 4th Amendment had been eviscerated!

Amendment IV
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause [evidence of a crime], supported by oath or affirmation [in the form of a sworn, signed and notarized affidavit], and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
In addition, other federal agencies have greatly expanded their powers. The entire Bill of Rights (including the right of “free speech and to assemble” in the 1st Amendment) has been greatly restricted. State and federal statutes have been enacted allowing the seizure of property upon “mere suspicion” that they might be or have been used in a crime: CIVIL FORFEITURE. And the owner must prove that this assertion is NOT true in order to regain his property – the reverse of our rights guaranteed in the 5th Amendment.

Amendment V
“No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”

oooooops!

Are We Really on the Verge of a Second Civil War?

And ye shall hear of wars, and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. – Matthew 24:6

Victor Davis Hanson, in National Review, writes of the “Origins of Our Second Civil War.” In his explanation of how the stage has been set, he cites the following: Globalization, High Tech, The Campus, Illegal Immigration, and of course places as much blame as possible on Barack Obama.

Everything that he points out is mostly true and certainly the cause of a point in our history when anger and hatred are at a fever pitch.

I was shocked to read one of Hanson’s remedies to this civil war generating hatred and anger: “Religious and spiritual reawakening is crucial.”

Most often such suggestions for a cure to the evils and sinful lives that Americans lead and live is taboo from the written words of the press. In this case, the reference is quite generic and a bit less toxic to those who find Yahweh as the curse and not the cure.

What we are seeing in our society is the fruit of our labors of the man-god’s building with a definite denial, blindness, and determination to find the right answers from the corrupt government that crafts the “Bread and Circuses” that attempt to keep us all in line. So, are the Bread and Circus owners deliberately working to set the stage of “our second civil war?” Or have they, like so many other Americans, lost their focus on the moral compass of which our Creator provides to those wanting to take advantage of it? You’ll have to decide the answer to that.

Mr. Hanson refers to the Sermon on the Mount as an example of these modern-day troubles as a warning of what our future might look like. It should be pointed out that reading the Sermon on the Mount might provide some historical perspective, fully understanding cannot be achieved unless one is filled with the Spirit of Truth that guides and convicts.

Which brings us to the root cause of a belief that the U.S. is on the verge of a second civil war. There are just too many people looking to government and man-gods for answers. Those answers can never come from there because the foundation of their existence is full of sin and corruption and not on God their Creator.

As with the Sermon on the Mount, the words are incomplete unless Yahweh’s Spirit is leading the way (Hebrews 4:12). That leadership, unlike that of man’s, is voluntary. It requires us as individuals to reach out and take it. It’s a free gift and the only gift that can stop a second civil war.

Concerning the U.N.E.P. Wolf Issue

Any chance of pushing this UNEP wolf issue off the backs of those oppressed by this UNEP problem, because of apathy, disinterest, laziness, political division, listening to liar political hacks rather than researchers working diligently in discovery of word and term efforts to unravel this governments fraudulent political authority has all but been lost… Because of lacking of knowledge to argue correctly against the lawlessness being perpetrated against us.. Because ignorant people would rather listen to Rockholm, Fanning, Kemery and anyone else who runs their mouth yet can’t back up their mouth… So those with political authority keep this thing moving in fast forward because they face no credible opposition..

That International Law is pure commerce under the UCC , which emanates from the old NIL, which created the Admiralty Jurisdiction in the first place, which is pure Hammurabi Law. The source for that is found in the Admiralty case of Southworth Machinery Co. Inc. v F/V Corey Pride, et al., 1993 AMC 2261 on page 2265, Footnote 3, citing Benedict on Admiralty (7th Ed) and 4 other cases from 1984 to 1989. They are all commercial under maritime principles and subject to Admiralty Jurisdiction. In that case we have standing under International Law of Hammurabi that existed in 1600 BC and ruled the entire world, including the Roman Empire, The Laws of Rodians promulgated 900 B,C., which preceded the Christian era by 4 centuries and were put there by Justinian’s authority about 533 A.D.; the Law of Oleron, the Phoenicians, The Egyptians, China , India , France , England . So you see they screwed themselves when one knows what law they are operating under. That law is the oldest law known by mankind, that being Hammurabi. Hammurabi feared the Lord and wrote the laws as close to God’s law as possible to get rid of evil and help the people like us today.

They should read all his laws that come as close to the Lord’s law as anyone can get. Hammurabi’s Laws used by the government does not preclude us from using the law against the government. Of course the law that even trumps this man’s law is the Lord’s Law found in the Bible. But 99 percent of the People in America have shunned The Lord Almighty for man’s laws and seemingly they do want a King/ President to give their allegiance to rather than to the Lord Almighty. People would rather live as they are now and read all the men in history, Plato, Servius, Paulus, Vattel, Blackstone, Story, Pardessus and the list goes on. Not one of these men has ever cited the Lord’s Law as the ultimate law and what they have to say, rather than what the Lord said to live by. References to Hammurabi law was made by the U.S. Supreme court in modern times, They are Farrel v. United States ,336 U.S. 511, 69 S. Ct. 707, 93 L.Ed.850 and Mitchell v. Trawler Racer, 362U,S. 539, 80 S.CT. 926, 4 L.Ed. 2nd 941. All one has to do is invoke Admiralty law found in Title 28 as that’s where all Admiralty Rules were put, including the supplemental Rules of Admiralty A through F. You see that’s why they say you can’t bring the Constitution into a pure contract private Admiralty law scene. The courts have been operating in Admiralty since 1789.

The UNEP bullshit would hit a stone wall against truly enlightened men with a comprehensive understanding of these legal and lawful defenses…But since those certain “leaders” of the defense against this UNEP WOLF issue chose ignorance as their mechanism of argument they have accomplished NOTHING..

What did  Yahweh say about if you did this he would do what for your lands?

Thinking yourselves wise those wiser than you have made fools of you.. Not being as wise as those serpents who sicked those wolves on you has failed you… Not harmless as a dove skilled in using your minds to their full potential to turn the enemies own laws against them.. Self defeat..

Back to your politicians playing gods over your lives…

Ignorance wins you NOTHING…

Thanks goes out to ALL of the researchers past and present who actually did something in the push back effort against this evil system of deception.. James Montgomery. The INFORMER. David Williams. Spooner. Thoreau. Zackery Taylor.. Even Hammurabi himself..

Blind Trust In The Puppet Trump’s Plan For Fools

Just like Obama’s “change” Trump’s “MAGA” is just the same sleazy slinky back and forth on a path downstairs. You see the pendulum swing back and forth but not the descent into the pit of hell.

OBSERVING the cleverest deep state psyop of all time… Their 100% fake opposition to the deep state, their latest puppet Donald Trump… It would be hilarious were it not so disgustingly sad… Prior to this psyop was the Obama psyop, that completely fooled the leftists… Interesting how the leftists are blind to the truth of Obama yet can see Trump, and prior to Trump the rightists could see Obama, yet cannot see Trump.. Oh well.. The deep states shit show must go on… All I can say is bring on the donkey…

 

99 percent of the People in America have shunned The Lord Yahweh Almighty for the traditions of man’s laws and seemingly they do want a Pope-Caeasr Dagon King and that seat of powers puppet a President, recently Clinton, Bush, Obama and now Trump, less recent every U.S. president, to give their allegiance to rather than to the Lord Yahweh Almighty. People would rather live as they are now and read all the men in history, Plato, Servius, Paulus, Vattel, Blackstone, Story, Pardessus and the list goes on. Of course there are those who read nothing.. Not one of these men nor the politicos of the U.S. corporation has ever cited the Lord Yahweh’s Law as the ultimate law in what they have to say, rather than what the Lord Yahweh said to live by.. Although they have mocked that law.. We saw Obama openly with his mouth mocking Yahweh’s law.. The rest mock Yahweh’s law with their support of Satan’s world system, the Kingdoms of this world, the same system he offered Yeshua if Yeshua would bow down to him.. The ownership of the U.S. corporation is a legal documented fact validated in law books and law libraries.. The owner is named in the Paris Treaty of 1783… Presidents are puppets…

An Opportunity to Make the ESA Benefit People

*Editor’s Note* – I have the utmost respect for Jim Beers. His experience and his knowledge, along with a willingness to share makes him a standout in today’s world of programmed automatons. However, it is my belief that there is insanity in thinking that just one more attempt at instituting change can happen if we vote in the “right” people to serve in Washington. The System is far too big, far too powerful, and far too corrupt to think that any person or group of persons can change that. Thinking so is explemplary to the ignorance of the Global Power Structure.

Inserting another “however,” we shouldn’t throw out the baby with the bath water. Beers latest writing contains many accurate and powerful facts that we shouldn’t forget.

Having said this, I cannot offer any solution that will cause real change in our governmental structure, especially the criminal aspects of it. In the years that I have spent in this work, which involves uncountable hours of read-searching, it has become extraordinarily clear that in government absolutely nothing has changed – only the allowed rhetoric to rile and divide the masses. 

As to the history of the Endangered Species Act, all the promises, all the talk, all the hype over the past 20 years and, like all government establishments, nothing has changed. Beers has it right in warning us not to be fooled by false promises – promises for action in exchange for your vote. This has been the history of real criminal politics and there is no hope that it will change or that you and I can actually do anything about it…short of changing ourselves and how we perceive things.

My only suggestion is to do as we have been instructed in the Scriptures to not be a part of man’s government – “Come out of Her my people” (the Whore of Babylon). Our Creator knew and knows the corruption that would rule man’s crafted cesspool of lying, cheating, and stealing. 

Put your faith and belief in God the Almighty instead of man-gods and your perspective will change. Government will not.

By Jim Beers:

As this old wildlife bureaucrat sees the “Deep State” wriggle and squirm like a nightcrawler on the hook of the President I am encouraged that there may be a remedy on the horizon for all the damage and abuse that rural America is absorbing from environmental and animal overreach by federal bureaucracies.  “Endangered” “species” from Wolves and Grizzly Bears to Mountain Yellow-Legged Frogs and Tooth Cave Spiders can be changed from tools forged by bureaucrats to decimate animal husbandry, grazing, hunting, logging and other rural pursuits necessary for rural American communities into animals that decimate such communities for a wide range of nefarious hidden agendas.

The possibility of changing this has come to mind as I have followed the political battle between the Congress, and the FBI and DOJ about if and to what extent the FBI and DOJ meddled in the last Presidential election.  Furthermore, the vitriol spewed by certain members of the last Administration, particularly in the intelligence arena, toward the President and everything he does up to and including calling him a traitor is not only stunning but suggestive of a possible remedy for Endangered Species, Wilderness and other environmental laws that use power-seeking bureaucrats as unanswerable and irresponsible tools of vote-seeking politicians that pass and protect unjust laws they then disavow as being administered by “scientists” and “experts”.

Consider the following examples.

1.) When terrorism first became a major national concern, the law enforcement “experts” made the logical case that new “secret” courts (FISA courts) were necessary to issue “secret” warrants to search and investigate the profusion of cells and individuals suspected of plotting and carrying out terrorist acts. Despite misgivings by many legal historians, Congress passed a law establishing these FISA courts.  So, what happened?

We find that the FBI, DOJ and CIA tapped phones of Congressional staff, conducted secret surveillance of the Trump election campaign, and then lied to Congress and stalled only to dribble heavily redacted documents to Congressional Committees.  When called to appear before these Committees the contempt and disdain displayed toward Congress and the Administration was stunning.  The forecast that FISA would create a Star Chamber form of “justice” wherein proceedings were secret, rulings were arbitrary and tyrannical, and there was little difference between the “Kings” enforcers and the “Kings” judges became a fact. When an investigation is launched against the President, it lasts for years while being made up of lawyers strongly opposed to the President.  The wife of an FBI official is given thousands of dollars to run for an office by the Party opposing the President.  “Lost” emails, a private server containing highly classified information kept in a private residence basement are dismissed as acceptable.

2.) When the federal government sought to “equalize” tax advantages for all political lobbying organizations under President Obama, IRS employee Lois Lerner engaged in serious discrimination against conservative groups while favoring tax exemptions for liberal groups.  When that was exposed by a Congressional Committee, Ms. Lerner took the 5th and her boss, Mr. Koskinen lied to Congress when he said her emails were lost to a computer glitch.  Ms. Lerner skated free and retired: her boss did a double arabesque and pirouetted off stage right into infamy.

3.) Gun control advocates here and in the UN began accusing American gun dealers of supplying Mexican drug lords and foreign revolutionary movements with illegal guns and ammunition early in the Obama Administration.  Soon thereafter, ATF and DOJ began a secret operation they labelled Fast and Furious.  Two thousand automatic weapons, including over 30 .50 caliber rifles, were placed in the purported flow of illegal guns into Mexico to ostensibly discover the identify of traffickers.  The guns promptly disappeared and popped up in such widespread places as Mexican drug-related executions and the personal gun collection of drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, as well as one being the murder weapon of an American Border Patrol Agent, Brian Terry.  Simultaneously, the US State Department was negotiating an unmentioned “Small Arms Treaty” at the UN that supposedly would replace the 2nd Amendment when ratified by the US Senate and signed by President Obama.

When Fast and Furious became public, the DOJ refused to give Congress, or anyone else, any information.  The Attorney General was exceptionally arrogant (shades of Strzok, Brennan, Clapper, Comey, and McCabe, et al of recent vintage) and was found in Contempt of Congress.  The UN “Treaty” ploy was abandoned and since then guns from this ATF debacle continue popping up in both US and Mexican crime scenes.

4.) When I worked for the US Fish and Wildlife Service in Washington in the 1990’s I saw the same arrogance and hubris emerge in top managers.  They began to feel the power at their fingertips and what it could do for themselves.  Contempt for hunters, ranchers, loggers, shepherds, private property rights, animal ownership, and renewable natural resource management was what the environmental laws had become.  Successful bureaucrats were those that saw themselves as accumulating power and the financial rewards and gravitas it created.  By the mid 1990’s USFWS appointees and top bureaucrats were placing beholden women and minorities in top management positions as endangered species came to the forefront and the entire concept of managing wildlife for people became bureaucrats managing people and their rights for wildlife.

This led to Budget Requests to Congress to introduce wolves into the Upper Rocky Mountains and to open an unnecessary new office in California to seal a close alliance with radical environmental and animal rights’ organizations.  When Congress refused to authorize or fund either;  USFWS simply “diverted” (either “took” or “stole” is more accurate) $45M to $60M from the Excise Taxes that by law could only go to state wildlife agencies and then surreptitiously captured and imported Canadian wolves, released them into the Upper Rockies, opened the California office, and gave the leftover funds to USFWS managers in bonus packages.

When this theft was documented in a General Accounting Office Audit and presented to the House Resources Committee, the Director was absent at the Hearing she was requested to attend.  When she and her underlings finally testified, the arrogance and contempt for American law and the American electorate was a copy of that noted in 1, 2, and 3 above examples.  Any prosecution or reprimand or accountability for the perps was lost in the approaching Presidential election. Any deterrence for other bureaucrats about ever losing a bonus or retirement for any transgression was not only foregone; the opposite or “we are untouchable” was the message sent to the “Lerners”, “Comeys” and “Holders” of the “Deep State”.

Recommendation

Each of these examples has 2 things in common:

  1. Excessive central government power in the hands of unelected political appointees and bureaucrats.
  2. Legal backing by elected central government politicians to enact and federal laws that implement political agendas disguised as “feel-good” goals such as “saving” species and wilderness, gun control, tax “fairness”, and fighting terrorism.

There is an approaching federal mid-term election coming upon us.  Some forecast the House and Senate ceding the majority to the other Party, while some forecast the opposite.  The majority Party is apparently shedding the bloc of politicians that fight the President and his proposals at every turn and the minority Party is putting forth a radical-socialism, mix based on Venezuela and Cuban governance.  It will be a tumultuous election with no guarantees.  That tumult is what has created an opportunity.

The harms and damage of the Endangered Species Act (and the Wilderness Act, FISA, and similar federal overreaches for “feel-good” purposes) can be greatly, if not entirely reduced by telling your federal politicians running for office and the incumbents that you want to amend the ESA.  Tell them you are concerned about having an environment as hospitable to truly endangered plants and animals AS CAN BE ENCOURAGED IN THE SETTLED LANDSCAPES OF THE LOWER 48 STATES WHERE YOU LIVE, WORK AND RAISE YOUR FAMILIES AND THIS DEPENDS ON LOCAL SUPPORT!

Then tell them “the problem has been and remains that there is no responsibility or accountability for the success or failure of these programs in either federal politicians that support the programs or the federal bureaucrats that administer them”.

Therefore, you want to amend the ESA to require that as of the following fiscal year, all endangered species actions other than listing must have the written concurrence of the Governor of the state in which any action shall be proposed to take place.  Such permission by the Governor should be a signed agreement for each species and include the end-point, funding to be available annually, compensation for likely negative impacts like cattle, sheep and big game losses and human and property losses due to  government actions or lack thereof.  Tell them if they won’t support this, you either won’t vote for them or you will vote for the other guy.  AMEND THE ESA is the sign you should put along the road for the local paper to run.

Do not be fooled by offers to “return management of this or that species to the state”: such “offers” disguise the precedent that what the feds “give” they can later take away under a future political situation.  Don’t be fooled by legislative proposals promising more “transparency” or “participation”: such things are meaningless smoke and mirrors.  Nothing, short of taking primary authority and jurisdiction for all non-treaty wildlife and plants from federal control and placing it back at the lowest (and therefore most responsive to people) level of government will work.  Two hundred years of American life proved no less.

I could go on, but your time is limited.  Suffice it to say that the Governor (include the state legislature if you will) is an official actually close to the impacts of such federal action and he (they in the case of the Legislature) can be recalled or voted out of office when things go south: that is not true with either federal politicians or bureaucrats when sheep are killed by “GI” (Government Issue) grizzlies or elk/moose hunting is destroyed by “GI” wolves.  Governors and state legislatures are more responsible and responsive than any federal politician or bureaucrat in nearly every state.

If you think this too hard to do, just picture Strzok or Comey smirking at the camera, or Holder defending the indefensible, or the discredited Koskinen explaining how the “computer ate my homework”.  Then think about your kids and grandkids in ten or 15 years when a President Elizabeth Warren and Vice President Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are telling Secretary of the Interior Cameron Diaz to let those fires burn over onto private property and get rid of those ranchers, farmers and sheep herders so we can consolidate and expand federal land ownership.  If they still have the authority over these unjust federal laws solely in their hands without any check or balance, it can happen in a New York nanosecond, with or without Congress.

Either we get this under control soon or we can just say goodbye to the American experience.

Thinking Themselves Wise, They Are But Fools

 

Ephesians 5:13 Geneva

{13 But all things when they are reproved of the light, are manifest: for it is light that maketh all things manifest.}

Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children,

And walk in love, even as Christ hath loved us, and hath given himself for us, to be an offering and a sacrifice of a sweet smelling savor to God.

[a]But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as it becometh Saints,

Neither filthiness, neither foolish talking, neither [b]jesting, which are things not comely, but rather giving of thanks.

[c]For this ye know, that no whoremonger, neither unclean person, nor covetous person, which is an [d]idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ, and of God.

Let no man deceive you with vain words: for, for such things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

[e]Be not therefore companions with them.

For ye were once darkness, but are now [f]light in the Lord: walk as children of light.

(For the fruit of the [g]Spirit is in all goodness, and righteousness, and truth.)

10 Approving that which is pleasing to the Lord.

11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but even [h]reprove them rather.

12 For it is shame even to speak of the things which are done of them in secret.

13 But all things when they are reproved of the light, are manifest: for it is light that maketh all things manifest.

14 Wherefore [i]he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and stand up from the [j]dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

Again;

{13 But all things when they are reproved of the light, are manifest: for it is light that maketh all things manifest.}

For The Lord Hath Covered You With a Spirit of Slumber, and Hath Shut Up Your Eyes

Isaiah 29 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

29 1 A prophecy against Jerusalem.?13 The vengeance of God on them that follow the traditions of men.

Ah [a]altar, altar of the city that David dwelt in: add year unto year: [b]let them kill lambs.

But I will bring the altar into distress, and there shall be heaviness and sorrow, and it shall be unto me like [c]an altar.

And I will besiege thee as a circle, and fight against thee on a mount, and will cast up ramparts against thee.

So shalt thou be humbled, and shalt speak out of the [d]ground, and thy speech shall be as out of the dust: thy voice also shall be out of the ground like him that hath a spirit of divination, and thy talking shall whisper out of the dust.

Moreover, multitude of thy [e]strangers shall be like small dust, and the multitude of strong men shall be as chaff that passeth away: and it shall be in a moment, even suddenly.

Thou shalt be visited of the Lord of hosts with thunder, and shaking, and a great noise, a whirlwind, and a tempest, and a flame of a devouring fire.

And the [f]multitude of all the nations that fight against the altar, shall be as a dream or vision by night: even all they that make the war against it, and strongholds against it, and lay siege unto it.

And it shall be like as an hungry man dreameth, and behold, [g]he eateth: and when he awaketh, his soul is empty: or like as a thirsty man dreameth, and lo, he is drinking, and when he awaketh, behold, he is faint, and his soul longeth: so shall the multitude of all nations be that fight against mount Zion.

[h]Stay yourselves and wonder: they are blind, and make you blind: they are drunken, but not with wine: they stagger, but not by strong drink.

10 For the Lord hath covered you with a spirit of slumber, and hath shut up your eyes: the Prophet, and your chief Seers hath he covered.

11 And the vision of them all is become unto you, as the words of a book that is sealed up, which they deliver to one that can read, saying, Read this, I pray thee. Then shall he say, I [i]cannot; for it is sealed.

12 And the book is given unto him that cannot read, saying, Read this, I pray thee. And he shall say, I cannot read.

13 Therefore the Lord said, Because this people [j]come near unto me with their mouth, and honor me with their lips, but have removed their heart far from me, and their [k]fear toward me was taught by the precept of men,

14 Therefore behold, I will again do a marvelous work in this people, even a marvelous work, and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall [l]perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.

15 Woe unto them that [m]seek deep to hide their counsel from the Lord: for their works are in darkness, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?

16 Your turning of devices shall it not be esteemed [n]as the potter’s clay? for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or the thing formed, say of him that fashioned it, He had none understanding?

17 Is it not yet but a little while, and Lebanon shall be [o]turned into Carmel? and Carmel shall be counted as a forest?

18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.

19 The meek in the Lord shall receive joy again, and the poor men shall rejoice in the Holy one of Israel.

20 For the cruel man shall cease, and the scornful shall be consumed: and all that hasted to iniquity, shall be cut off:

21 Which made a man to sin in the [p]word, and took him in a snare: which reproved them in the gate, and made the just to fall without cause.

22 Therefore thus saith the Lord unto the house of Jacob, even he that redeemed Abraham: Jacob shall not now be confounded, neither now shall his face be pale.

23 But when he seeth his children, the work of mine hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my Name, and sanctify the Holy one of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel.

24 Then they that erred in spirit, [q]shall have understanding, and they that murmured, shall learn doctrine.
