The King in His Beauty

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 33:1 -

Woe to you, O destroyer,

As soon as you cease to deal treacherously, others will deal treacherously with you.

And shakes his hands so that they hold no bribe;

He who stops his ears from hearing about bloodshed

And shuts his eyes from looking upon evil;

Nor any of its cords ever be torn apart.

A place of rivers and wide canals

The people who inhabit [fn]there will be forgiven their iniquity.
