earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth
shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like

thou, that thou shouldest be afraid of a man that shall die, and of the son of
man which shall be made as grass;
And forgettest the LORD thy maker, that hath stretched forth the
heavens, and laid the foundations of the earth; and hast feared continually
every day because of the fury of the oppressor, as if he were ready to destroy?
and where is the fury of the oppressor?
The captive exile hasteneth that he may be loosed, and
that he should not die in the pit, nor that his bread should fail.
But I am the LORD thy God, that
divided the sea, whose waves roared: The LORD of hosts is his name.
And I have put my words in thy
mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the
heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my
stand up, O Jerusalem, which hast drunk at the hand of the LORD the cup of his
fury; thou hast drunken the dregs of the cup of trembling, and wrung them

body as the ground, and as the street, to them that went over.
