The spooks that monitor this site and others have been put on notice. I do believe it is time to step up to the plate and be part of the soulution. What pisses me off is the fact that they have used our personal resources to cause a great deal of abuse. Abuse on every level I can imagine. Taking our resources and using those resources against us. Jay was surely gifted and he provides proof. He was a brother lion. My heart goes out to his other half as she has had so much to handle these last few years. Again, there is some cussing, but you will see why.

    So, late last week, I called my friend Kate and we got into a discussion. The discussion was about grid systems that have been put into place around our Planet. As it turns out, Kate had been recently working on basically the same thing, I had worked on several years ago. I asked her for permission to post up her drawing. It is not complete and is still a work in progress. But you will get the idea.

    Basically what you are looking at is a portal that leads into and out of a space of density with a grid system surrounding that space. We know that the Reptilians had placed a grid system around our Planet eons ago. We also know that the Reptilians had also hijacked the Crystal Kingdom. I suspect that they hijacked that Kingdom first. Keep in mind that there is another grid system. The original Gaia grid system, which is by all means, natural. You can look at it from the perspective that the Crystal Kingdom was the neuro network that would create the auric field around our Planet. A natural grid. So here are the grid systems that I am aware of. Gaia's, Reptilian, Angelic, and Indigo.

    Part of the design of the Reptilian grid system was to filter your soul identity. Meaning you would forget who you were when you incarnated here. Another part was to collect the fear frequency of the Planet. Don't forget that the Reptilians feed on fear frequencies. It's their drug of choice. In 1992, the 11:11 doorway opened up and a new grid system was to be put into place. That grid system was designed to counteract the Reptilian grid system by reversing or neutralizing the flow of the fear frequency. Designed to stop feeding the beast. However, IMO, hasn't worked.

    The Indigo grid was placed in 1992. The same year as the 11:11. However, the Indigo phenom actually started in the 50s. The first wave came into being. They were then called the "Forerunners." Their mission was to anchor the Indigo frequencies to the Planet so that the Indigos could then incarnate and operate. If you notice, the Indigos retained their soul memories and identity. Which the Reptilians have an issue with to say that lightly. It would seem that the Universe is seeking balance. Rumor has it that the filter of the Reptilian grid system that prevented your soul memory has been taken down, around 10 years ago. So the kids born since then should have their memories intact. I can only pray this is so. cheers sunny

    Thank-you Morpheus. There's got to be a hidden-story which seems to have been partially revealed in various ways throughout the past several thousand years, and especially in the past several decades, yet which remains mostly hidden. I've tried to read the material generated by Various Alternative-Researchers, Brook and Yourself, along with reconsidering the Best of My Past, and this has resulted in a lot of insights, yet I keep getting the sinking-feeling that someone's Ancient-System is Managing This Solar System in a somewhat unalterable manner. I'm attempting to Understand the System rather than Bucking the System. Resistance Might be Futile. Who Knows?? The Borg Queen?? HAL 9000?? My name is similar to David Bowman, but I seem to be knowing less and less as I feel worse and worse, as if the Matrix is cracking-down on me (especially regarding my efforts to think out-loud on Project Avalon and The Mists of Avalon). Namaste.

    My hands are full as it is with what little I do know of in the firsthand. Brook and I only cracked the surface of the Egyptian subject and discovered how much of that was false propaganda. We discovered the dark agenda hidden beneath it. That is another reason why I try to stick to what was experienced instead of the propaganda. I wish I could say I was a Cosmic reporter but there is so much that I haven't a clue and that alone disqualifies me as such. So don't feel like you're the only one who struggles with all these puzzles. To be honest, I could care less anymore. I'm so tired of it all. All I am doing now is just sharing what insights I have experienced. I don't consider myself an avid researcher like yourself. I was in my younger years, but that didn't exactly pan out as far as getting the results needed to solve the situations I found myself in. Because of those situations, I was considered a FREAK. Even by my own family. And yet when my family saw something, they would come running to me for the answers. The answers to resolve their fears. I had an awful lot put on my plate back in the day.

    You must realize that we are a part of an Empire. Which has been controlled by those in charge from Saturn. Those in charge have come and gone many times. Competition is a Universal fact. What blows my mind is all the insectoid races that are out there and here. The Wasp race, another nasty bunch, controlled this Solar System for a long time. They have been pushed out of here in the now. But when they ruled, they were a menace. Imagine this race having ships as well. Not much has been mentioned about these characters.

    Don't forget the Mantids and the Ant folks. I have had contact with both of these factions. 3 times with the Ant People. Once with a Mantid. Within the last 5 years as far as the Ant People. Both of these factions are allies of the Human Race. And yet, you don't want to be on their wrong side. They are both warrior races.

    As you are probably aware of the Reptilian removal campaign for the last 15 years. One of their ships was destroyed somewhere in our Solar System. The ship was a cube ship similar to the Borg Cube ship. This ship was reported to be 30 miles cubed.

    Some of the Earthquakes we have experienced is from under Earth battles with these Reptilians. Even now the hunt for the remaining ones is ongoing.

    Let us not forget the tall Greys. I speculate they are the ones behind the chemtrails. They are a sinister bunch and very elusive.

I think I might've seen an Insectoid-Alien a few years ago, and I spoke with someone who called me a 'Commoner' when I spoke about 'Tall Long-Nosed Greys'. I spoke with someone who said "I've always been opposed to Humans, and I always will be against them." I experienced a couple of sharp shaking-episodes at 3AM a couple of weeks ago which didn't feel like earthquakes. I imagined an underground battle. Digging for Truth seems to place one in Spiritual-Quicksand. Perhaps this is the Matrix at Work. I'm trying to not-post and not-talk. It only hurts when I think. Ignorance and Inaction seem to be Bliss and Virtue. Books are a funny-thing in the internet-age. What one can reveal within a website such as The Mists of Avalon is MUCH Superior to anything one might present in books. We use quoted-material, videos, articles, links, images, and editorial-content which can be changed in minutes. All of This is for FREE!! But the level of interest and participation (even with long-time forum-members) seems pathetic to me. I'm as mad as hell. I've had enough. And I'm NOT going to take this anymore.
    Regarding Deuteronomy, Psalms, Isaiah, and Daniel, arguably the primary legal and prophetic Old-Testament books, I probably have the most trouble with Deuteronomy and Daniel. Deuteronomy seems to be a mixed-bag of Good and Evil. Daniel seems to be incredibly difficult to properly interpret in a grammatical-historical hermeneutical-manner. Psalms and Isaiah are the longest books in the Whole-Bible, and arguably contain the most Messianic-Prophecy and Theological-Clarification. I might've gotten some (or all) of the above wrong, but that's just the way it seems to me. What if one read Psalms and Isaiah straight-through, over and over, in a variety of translations, with Psalms and Isaiah interpreting Psalms and Isaiah?? What if one rewrote the 1928 'Book of Common Prayer' to include ONLY Psalms and Isaiah, with both printed in their entirety?? This would involve a cover to cover remake, leaving as much as possible alone, yet including ONLY Psalms and Isaiah. This would be a very involved, difficult, and controversial project (to say the least)!! What if a 2028 'Book of Common Prayer' consisted of Psalms and Isaiah (in responsive-reading form) interspersed with references to Sacred Classical Music devoted to Psalms and Isaiah?? The Music might be contained in separate books.

    Who is the World-Authority on Psalms and Isaiah?? Are Psalms and Isaiah the Real-Deal or Total-Bullshit?? Do they support and/or undermine Judaism and/or Christianity?? Once again, how can we REALLY know?? What if the New-Testament had been strictly based upon Psalms and Isaiah, with lots of expository-preaching?? Where is the Torah in Psalms and Isaiah?? Where is Psalms and Isaiah in the New-Testament?? We make the Bible say what we want the Bible to say, don't we?? It might take several-years and hundreds of times of reading Psalms and Isaiah to REALLY get what I'm hinting-at. I'm honestly too miserable and dumbed-down to be of any use here. I'm honestly preparing to die (at least within 5 to 10 years). 'RA' said "In 20 years you'll be working for us" and that was in 2010, so perhaps I'll die in 2030. Or perhaps 'RA' was predicting that humanity would be working for Artificial-Intelligence Regressive-Extraterrestrials in A.D. 2030. I keep warning that we might be more screwed than we can imagine, and we should consider ALL Possibilities. Unfortunately, I'm reduced to being a Noble-Agnostic with Responsible-Neutrality for the rest of this incarnation. Sorry About That.

    I've said this hundreds of times throughout the years, but I would appreciate a comprehensive analysis of my internet-activity, especially regarding my posting over the last couple of years. Nothing ever materializes. The agencies and societies silently watch like snakes in the grass (ready to strike) and everyone else seems to not-know and/or not-care. I have very-little sense of obligation (at this point). I was prepared to do much more, with my threads merely serving as introductory attention-getters and conversation-pieces. I've been tight-lipped in real-life, and now I intend to be tight-lipped (or is it 'tight-fingered'??) on the internet. I've 'cast my pearls' to all-concerned (and unconcerned) for free. This Present Generation Seems MUCH Too Sophisticated for My Present Quest Concerning This Present Darkness. The Power-Struggles during the remainder of the 21st Century should be Something to Behold (to say the least). That's All I'm Going to Say About THAT.

    What if just about Everyone and Everything in this world are a mixture of Good and Evil, Angelic and Demonic?? This would include Church, State, Education, and Corporation (for starters). It often seems as if Earth is a Beautiful-Warzone. What if the Good-People get targeted and attacked more vigorously than the Bad-People?? But what if All of Us are Bad-People (with some better than others)?? 'RA' told me "Everyone is Bad." What if I was dealing with a demon?? But what if All of Us are Ancient-Demons?? What if 'RA' was simply the current BMOC?? What if there have been legion BMOC's in the History of Earth and Humanity?? What if being the BMOC is NOT a Good-Thing on Planet-Earth?? As I was sleeping (and occasionally waking) last-night and this-morning, I 'listened' to several videos by Derek Prince, who seemed to know a lot about Demons and Exorcism. He claimed to have had demons within himself (until they were removed). I liked a lot of what he said, yet I had a lot of problems with his messages. Is it possible to have every demon exorcised except for one particularly sneaky and stubborn demon??!! Could someone be a Bigshot-Preacher with a Sneaky-Demon??!!

    Please watch the Bart Ehrman lecture below. Especially notice what he has to say about LAW. The Bible seems to have a variety of standards from Genesis to Revelation. It's interesting to read the 'Conflict of the Ages Series' by Ellen White, noting especially what she does with LAW. I continue to think that Humanity has a Legal-Problem of Biblical-Proportions (especially regarding LAW throughout recorded-history). I keep thinking we might need something akin to Neo Canon-Law (but not necessary Roman Catholic). Think long and hard about the concept of Planet Hell, Planet Purgatory, and Planet Paradise, especially regarding Freedom, Responsibility, and Authority. I'm finding it increasingly difficult to deal with this stuff. The End Might Be Near (for me, and all of us). Actually, we might be stuck with Planet Purgatory in Perpetuity (Governed by a Direct-Democracy Beast-Supercomputer). What if 'Pinky' is the Borg-Queen?? What if the 'Brain' is HAL 9000?? What if the Brain is the Dr. Who Blue Boy aka David Bowman?? What if Pinky is an Insane HAL 9000?? This thing might be stranger than ANYONE Can Think. Abraxasinas said Theology was central to understanding our predicament. The Horror.




    Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the LORD, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever they do prospers. Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away. Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous. For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.

    Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the LORD and against his anointed, saying, “Let us break their chains and throw off their shackles.” The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them. He rebukes them in his anger and terrifies them in his wrath, saying, “I have installed my king on Zion, my holy mountain.” I will proclaim the LORD’s decree: He said to me, “You are my son; today I have become your father. Ask me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession. You will break them with a rod of iron; you will dash them to pieces like pottery.” Therefore, you kings, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth. Serve the LORD with fear and celebrate his rule with trembling. Kiss his son, or he will be angry and your way will lead to your destruction, for his wrath can flare up in a moment. Blessed are all who take refuge in him.

    LORD, how many are my foes! How many rise up against me! Many are saying of me, “God will not deliver him.” But you, LORD, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high. I call out to the LORD, and he answers me from his holy mountain. I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me. I will not fear though tens of thousands assail me on every side. Arise, LORD! Deliver me, my God! Strike all my enemies on the jaw; break the teeth of the wicked. From the LORD comes deliverance. May your blessing be on your people.

    Answer me when I call to you, my righteous God. Give me relief from my distress; have mercy on me and hear my prayer. How long will you people turn my glory into shame? How long will you love delusions and seek false gods? Know that the LORD has set apart his faithful servant for himself; the LORD hears when I call to him. Tremble and do not sin; when you are on your beds, search your hearts and be silent. Offer the sacrifices of the righteous and trust in the LORD. Many, LORD, are asking, “Who will bring us prosperity?” Let the light of your face shine on us. Fill my heart with joy when their grain and new wine abound. In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety.

    Listen to my words, LORD, consider my lament. Hear my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray. In the morning, LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly. For you are not a God who is pleased with wickedness; with you, evil people are not welcome. The arrogant cannot stand in your presence. You hate all who do wrong; you destroy those who tell lies. The bloodthirsty and deceitful you, LORD, detest. But I, by your great love, can come into your house; in reverence I bow down toward your holy temple. Lead me, LORD, in your righteousness because of my enemies. Make your way straight before me. Not a word from their mouth can be trusted; their heart is filled with malice. Their throat is an open grave; with their tongues they tell lies. Declare them guilty, O God! Let their intrigues be their downfall. Banish them for their many sins, for they have rebelled against you. But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you. Surely, LORD, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield.  

    LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your wrath. Have mercy on me, LORD, for I am faint; heal me, LORD, for my bones are in agony. My soul is in deep anguish. How long, LORD, how long? Turn, LORD, and deliver me; save me because of your unfailing love. Among the dead no one proclaims your name. Who praises you from the grave? I am worn out from my groaning. All night long I flood my bed with weeping and drench my couch with tears. My eyes grow weak with sorrow; they fail because of all my foes. Away from me, all you who do evil, for the LORD has heard my weeping. The LORD has heard my cry for mercy; the LORD accepts my prayer. All my enemies will be overwhelmed with shame and anguish; they will turn back and suddenly be put to shame.

    LORD my God, I take refuge in you; save and deliver me from all who pursue me, or they will tear me apart like a lion and rip me to pieces with no one to rescue me. LORD my God, if I have done this and there is guilt on my hands, if I have repaid my ally with evil or without cause have robbed my foe, then let my enemy pursue and overtake me; let him trample my life to the ground and make me sleep in the dust. Arise, LORD, in your anger; rise up against the rage of my enemies. Awake, my God; decree justice. Let the assembled peoples gather around you, while you sit enthroned over them on high. Let the LORD judge the peoples. Vindicate me, LORD, according to my righteousness, according to my integrity, O Most High. Bring to an end the violence of the wicked and make the righteous secure, you, the righteous God who probes minds and hearts. My shield is God Most High, who saves the upright in heart. God is a righteous judge, a God who displays his wrath every day. If he does not relent, he will sharpen his sword; he will bend and string his bow. He has prepared his deadly weapons; he makes ready his flaming arrows. Whoever is pregnant with evil conceives trouble and gives birth to disillusionment. Whoever digs a hole and scoops it out falls into the pit they have made. The trouble they cause recoils on them; their violence comes down on their own heads. I will give thanks to the LORD because of his righteousness; I will sing the praises of the name of the LORD Most High.

    LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory in the heavens. Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger. When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them? You have made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honor. You made them rulers over the works of your hands; you put everything under their feet: all flocks and herds, and the animals of the wild, the birds in the sky, and the fish in the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas. LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!

    I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds. I will be glad and rejoice in you; I will sing the praises of your name, O Most High. My enemies turn back; they stumble and perish before you. For you have upheld my right and my cause, sitting enthroned as the righteous judge. You have rebuked the nations and destroyed the wicked; you have blotted out their name for ever and ever. Endless ruin has overtaken my enemies, you have uprooted their cities; even the memory of them has perished. The LORD reigns forever; he has established his throne for judgment. He rules the world in righteousness and judges the peoples with equity. The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.

    Sing the praises of the LORD, enthroned in Zion; proclaim among the nations what he has done. For he who avenges blood remembers; he does not ignore the cries of the afflicted. LORD, see how my enemies persecute me! Have mercy and lift me up from the gates of death, that I may declare your praises in the gates of Daughter Zion, and there rejoice in your salvation. The nations have fallen into the pit they have dug; their feet are caught in the net they have hidden. The LORD is known by his acts of justice; the wicked are ensnared by the work of their hands. The wicked go down to the realm of the dead, all the nations that forget God. But God will never forget the needy; the hope of the afflicted will never perish. Arise, LORD, do not let mortals triumph; let the nations be judged in your presence. Strike them with terror, LORD; let the nations know they are only mortal.

    Why, LORD, do you stand far off? Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble? In his arrogance the wicked man hunts down the weak, who are caught in the schemes he devises. He boasts about the cravings of his heart; he blesses the greedy and reviles the LORD. In his pride the wicked man does not seek him; in all his thoughts there is no room for God. His ways are always prosperous; your laws are rejected by him; he sneers at all his enemies. He says to himself, “Nothing will ever shake me.” He swears, “No one will ever do me harm.” His mouth is full of lies and threats; trouble and evil are under his tongue. He lies in wait near the villages; from ambush he murders the innocent. His eyes watch in secret for his victims; like a lion in cover he lies in wait. He lies in wait to catch the helpless; he catches the helpless and drags them off in his net. His victims are crushed, they collapse; they fall under his strength. He says to himself, “God will never notice; he covers his face and never sees.”

    Arise, LORD! Lift up your hand, O God. Do not forget the helpless. Why does the wicked man revile God? Why does he say to himself, “He won’t call me to account”? But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted; you consider their grief and take it in hand. The victims commit themselves to you; you are the helper of the fatherless. Break the arm of the wicked man; call the evildoer to account for his wickedness that would not otherwise be found out. The LORD is King for ever and ever; the nations will perish from his land. You, LORD, hear the desire of the afflicted; you encourage them, and you listen to their cry, defending the fatherless and the oppressed, so that mere earthly mortals will never again strike terror.

    In the LORD I take refuge. How then can you say to me: “Flee like a bird to your mountain. For look, the wicked bend their bows; they set their arrows against the strings to shoot from the shadows at the upright in heart. When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do?” The LORD is in his holy temple; the LORD is on his heavenly throne. He observes everyone on earth; his eyes examine them. The LORD examines the righteous, but the wicked, those who love violence, he hates with a passion. On the wicked he will rain fiery coals and burning sulfur; a scorching wind will be their lot. For the LORD is righteous, he loves justice; the upright will see his face.

    Help, LORD, for no one is faithful anymore; those who are loyal have vanished from the human race. Everyone lies to their neighbor; they flatter with their lips but harbor deception in their hearts. May the LORD silence all flattering lips and every boastful tongue, those who say, “By our tongues we will prevail; our own lips will defend us. Who is lord over us?” “Because the poor are plundered and the needy groan, I will now arise,” says the LORD. “I will protect them from those who malign them.” And the words of the LORD are flawless, like silver purified in a crucible, like gold refined seven times. You, LORD, will keep the needy safe and will protect us forever from the wicked, who freely strut about when what is vile is honored by the human race.

    How long, LORD? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and day after day have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me? Look on me and answer, LORD my God. Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death, and my enemy will say, “I have overcome him,” and my foes will rejoice when I fall. But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. I will sing the LORD’s praise, for he has been good to me.

    The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good. The LORD looks down from heaven on all mankind to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God. All have turned away, all have become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one. Do all these evildoers know nothing? They devour my people as though eating bread; they never call on the LORD. But there they are, overwhelmed with dread, for God is present in the company of the righteous. You evildoers frustrate the plans of the poor, but the LORD is their refuge. Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion! When the LORD restores his people, let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad!

    LORD, who may dwell in your sacred tent? Who may live on your holy mountain? The one whose walk is blameless, who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from their heart; whose tongue utters no slander, who does no wrong to a neighbor, and casts no slur on others; who despises a vile person but honors those who fear the LORD; who keeps an oath even when it hurts, and does not change their mind; who lends money to the poor without interest; who does not accept a bribe against the innocent. Whoever does these things will never be shaken.

    Keep me safe, my God, for in you I take refuge. I say to the LORD, “You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing.” I say of the holy people who are in the land, “They are the noble ones in whom is all my delight.” Those who run after other gods will suffer more and more. I will not pour out libations of blood to such gods or take up their names on my lips. LORD, you alone are my portion and my cup; you make my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance. I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me. I keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure, because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead, nor will you let your faithful one see decay. You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

    Hear me, LORD, my plea is just; listen to my cry. Hear my prayer, it does not rise from deceitful lips. Let my vindication come from you; may your eyes see what is right. Though you probe my heart, though you examine me at night and test me, you will find that I have planned no evil; my mouth has not transgressed. Though people tried to bribe me, I have kept myself from the ways of the violent through what your lips have commanded. My steps have held to your paths; my feet have not stumbled. I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer. Show me the wonders of your great love, you who save by your right hand those who take refuge in you from their foes. Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings from the wicked who are out to destroy me, from my mortal enemies who surround me. They close up their callous hearts, and their mouths speak with arrogance. They have tracked me down, they now surround me, with eyes alert, to throw me to the ground. They are like a lion hungry for prey, like a fierce lion crouching in cover. Rise up, LORD, confront them, bring them down; with your sword rescue me from the wicked. By your hand save me from such people, LORD, from those of this world whose reward is in this life. May what you have stored up for the wicked fill their bellies; may their children gorge themselves on it, and may there be leftovers for their little ones. As for me, I will be vindicated and will see your face; when I awake, I will be satisfied with seeing your likeness.

    I love you, LORD, my strength. The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I called to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and I have been saved from my enemies. The cords of death entangled me; the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me. The cords of the grave coiled around me; the snares of death confronted me. In my distress I called to the LORD; I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears. The earth trembled and quaked, and the foundations of the mountains shook; they trembled because he was angry. Smoke rose from his nostrils; consuming fire came from his mouth, burning coals blazed out of it. He parted the heavens and came down; dark clouds were under his feet. He mounted the cherubim and flew; he soared on the wings of the wind. He made darkness his covering, his canopy around him, the dark rain clouds of the sky. Out of the brightness of his presence clouds advanced, with hailstones and bolts of lightning. The LORD thundered from heaven; the voice of the Most High resounded. He shot his arrows and scattered the enemy, with great bolts of lightning he routed them. The valleys of the sea were exposed and the foundations of the earth laid bare at your rebuke, LORD, at the blast of breath from your nostrils. He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the LORD was my support. He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me.

    The LORD has dealt with me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands he has rewarded me. For I have kept the ways of the LORD; I am not guilty of turning from my God. All his laws are before me; I have not turned away from his decrees. I have been blameless before him and have kept myself from sin. The LORD has rewarded me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his sight. To the faithful you show yourself faithful, to the blameless you show yourself blameless, to the pure you show yourself pure, but to the devious you show yourself shrewd. You save the humble but bring low those whose eyes are haughty. You, LORD, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light. With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall. As for God, his way is perfect: The LORD’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him. For who is God besides the LORD? And who is the Rock except our God? It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure. He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights. He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze. You make your saving help my shield, and your right hand sustains me; your help has made me great. You provide a broad path for my feet, so that my ankles do not give way.

    I pursued my enemies and overtook them; I did not turn back till they were destroyed. I crushed them so that they could not rise; they fell beneath my feet. You armed me with strength for battle; you humbled my adversaries before me. You made my enemies turn their backs in flight, and I destroyed my foes. They cried for help, but there was no one to save them, to the LORD, but he did not answer. I beat them as fine as windblown dust; I trampled them like mud in the streets. You have delivered me from the attacks of the people; you have made me the head of nations. People I did not know now serve me, foreigners cower before me; as soon as they hear of me, they obey me. They all lose heart; they come trembling from their strongholds. The LORD lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be God my Savior! He is the God who avenges me, who subdues nations under me, who saves me from my enemies. You exalted me above my foes; from a violent man you rescued me. Therefore I will praise you, LORD, among the nations; I will sing the praises of your name. He gives his king great victories; he shows unfailing love to his anointed, to David and to his descendants forever.

    The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun. It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, like a champion rejoicing to run his course. It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other; nothing is deprived of its warmth. The law of the LORD is perfect, refreshing the soul. The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The precepts of the LORD are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the LORD are radiant, giving light to the eyes. The fear of the LORD is pure, enduring forever. The decrees of the LORD are firm, and all of them are righteous. They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the honeycomb. By them your servant is warned; in keeping them there is great reward. But who can discern their own errors? Forgive my hidden faults. Keep your servant also from willful sins; may they not rule over me. Then I will be blameless, innocent of great transgression. May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.

    May the LORD answer you when you are in distress; may the name of the God of Jacob protect you. May he send you help from the sanctuary and grant you support from Zion. May he remember all your sacrifices and accept your burnt offerings. May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed. May we shout for joy over your victory and lift up our banners in the name of our God. May the LORD grant all your requests. Now this I know: The LORD gives victory to his anointed. He answers him from his heavenly sanctuary with the victorious power of his right hand. Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God. They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm. LORD, give victory to the king! Answer us when we call!

    The king rejoices in your strength, LORD. How great is his joy in the victories you give! You have granted him his heart’s desire and have not withheld the request of his lips. You came to greet him with rich blessings and placed a crown of pure gold on his head. He asked you for life, and you gave it to him, length of days, for ever and ever. Through the victories you gave, his glory is great; you have bestowed on him splendor and majesty. Surely you have granted him unending blessings and made him glad with the joy of your presence. For the king trusts in the LORD; through the unfailing love of the Most High he will not be shaken. Your hand will lay hold on all your enemies; your right hand will seize your foes. When you appear for battle, you will burn them up as in a blazing furnace. The LORD will swallow them up in his wrath, and his fire will consume them. You will destroy their descendants from the earth, their posterity from mankind. Though they plot evil against you and devise wicked schemes, they cannot succeed. You will make them turn their backs when you aim at them with drawn bow. Be exalted in your strength, LORD; we will sing and praise your might.

    My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me, so far from my cries of anguish? My God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer, by night, but I find no rest. Yet you are enthroned as the Holy One; you are the one Israel praises. In you our ancestors put their trust; they trusted and you delivered them. To you they cried out and were saved; in you they trusted and were not put to shame. But I am a worm and not a man, scorned by everyone, despised by the people. All who see me mock me; they hurl insults, shaking their heads. “He trusts in the LORD,” they say, “let the LORD rescue him. Let him deliver him, since he delights in him.” Yet you brought me out of the womb; you made me trust in you, even at my mother’s breast. From birth I was cast on you; from my mother’s womb you have been my God. Do not be far from me, for trouble is near and there is no one to help. Many bulls surround me; strong bulls of Bashan encircle me. Roaring lions that tear their prey open their mouths wide against me. I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint. My heart has turned to wax; it has melted within me. My mouth is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue sticks to the roof of my mouth; you lay me in the dust of death. Dogs surround me, a pack of villains encircles me; they pierce my hands and my feet. All my bones are on display; people stare and gloat over me. They divide my clothes among them and cast lots for my garment.

    But you, LORD, do not be far from me. You are my strength; come quickly to help me. Deliver me from the sword, my precious life from the power of the dogs. Rescue me from the mouth of the lions; save me from the horns of the wild oxen. I will declare your name to my people; in the assembly I will praise you. You who fear the LORD, praise him! All you descendants of Jacob, honor him! Revere him, all you descendants of Israel! For he has not despised or scorned the suffering of the afflicted one; he has not hidden his face from him but has listened to his cry for help. From you comes the theme of my praise in the great assembly; before those who fear you I will fulfill my vows. The poor will eat and be satisfied; those who seek the LORD will praise him, may your hearts live forever! All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the LORD, and all the families of the nations will bow down before him, for dominion belongs to the LORD and he rules over the nations. All the rich of the earth will feast and worship; all who go down to the dust will kneel before him, those who cannot keep themselves alive. Posterity will serve him; future generations will be told about the Lord. They will proclaim his righteousness, declaring to a people yet unborn: He has done it!

    The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

    The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; for he founded it on the seas and established it on the waters. Who may ascend the mountain of the LORD? Who may stand in his holy place? The one who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not trust in an idol or swear by a false god. They will receive blessing from the LORD and vindication from God their Savior. Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek your face, God of Jacob. Lift up your heads, you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, you gates; lift them up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in. Who is he, this King of glory? The LORD Almighty, he is the King of glory.

    In you, LORD my God, I put my trust. I trust in you; do not let me be put to shame, nor let my enemies triumph over me. No one who hopes in you will ever be put to shame, but shame will come on those who are treacherous without cause. Show me your ways, LORD, teach me your paths. Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long. Remember, LORD, your great mercy and love, for they are from of old. Do not remember the sins of my youth and my rebellious ways; according to your love remember me, for you, LORD, are good. Good and upright is the LORD; therefore he instructs sinners in his ways. He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them his way. All the ways of the LORD are loving and faithful toward those who keep the demands of his covenant. For the sake of your name, LORD, forgive my iniquity, though it is great.

    Who, then, are those who fear the LORD? He will instruct them in the ways they should choose. They will spend their days in prosperity, and their descendants will inherit the land. The LORD confides in those who fear him; he makes his covenant known to them. My eyes are ever on the LORD, for only he will release my feet from the snare.  Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted. Relieve the troubles of my heart and free me from my anguish. Look on my affliction and my distress and take away all my sins. See how numerous are my enemies and how fiercely they hate me! Guard my life and rescue me; do not let me be put to shame, for I take refuge in you. May integrity and uprightness protect me, because my hope, LORD, is in you. Deliver Israel, O God, from all their troubles!

    Vindicate me, LORD, for I have led a blameless life; I have trusted in the LORD and have not faltered. Test me, LORD, and try me, examine my heart and my mind; for I have always been mindful of your unfailing love and have lived in reliance on your faithfulness. I do not sit with the deceitful, nor do I associate with hypocrites. I abhor the assembly of evildoers and refuse to sit with the wicked. I wash my hands in innocence, and go about your altar, LORD, proclaiming aloud your praise and telling of all your wonderful deeds. LORD, I love the house where you live, the place where your glory dwells. Do not take away my soul along with sinners, my life with those who are bloodthirsty, in whose hands are wicked schemes, whose right hands are full of bribes. I lead a blameless life; deliver me and be merciful to me. My feet stand on level ground; in the great congregation I will praise the LORD.

    The LORD is my light and my salvation! Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life! Who shall frighten me? When the wicked advance against me to devour me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall. Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident. One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple. For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock. Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the LORD. Hear my voice when I call, LORD; be merciful to me and answer me. My heart says of you, “Seek his face!” Your face, LORD, I will seek. Do not hide your face from me, do not turn your servant away in anger; you have been my helper. Do not reject me or forsake me, God my Savior. Though my father and mother forsake me, the LORD will receive me. Teach me your way, LORD; lead me in a straight path because of my oppressors. Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes, for false witnesses rise up against me, spouting malicious accusations. I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.

    To you, LORD, I call; you are my Rock, do not turn a deaf ear to me. For if you remain silent, I will be like those who go down to the pit. Hear my cry for mercy as I call to you for help, as I lift up my hands toward your Most Holy Place. Do not drag me away with the wicked, with those who do evil, who speak cordially with their neighbors but harbor malice in their hearts. Repay them for their deeds and for their evil work; repay them for what their hands have done and bring back on them what they deserve. Because they have no regard for the deeds of the LORD and what his hands have done, he will tear them down and never build them up again. Praise be to the LORD, for he has heard my cry for mercy. The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him. The LORD is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one. Save your people and bless your inheritance; be their shepherd and carry them forever.

    Ascribe to the LORD, you heavenly beings, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength. Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness. The voice of the LORD is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the LORD thunders over the mighty waters. The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is majestic. The voice of the LORD breaks the cedars; the LORD breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon. He makes Lebanon leap like a calf, Sirion like a young wild ox. The voice of the LORD strikes with flashes of lightning. The voice of the LORD shakes the desert; the LORD shakes the Desert of Kadesh. The voice of the LORD twists the oaksand strips the forests bare. And in his temple all cry, “Glory!” The LORD sits enthroned over the flood; the LORD is enthroned as King forever. The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace.

    I will exalt you, LORD, for you lifted me out of the depths and did not let my enemies gloat over me. LORD my God, I called to you for help, and you healed me. You, LORD, brought me up from the realm of the dead; you spared me from going down to the pit. Sing the praises of the LORD, you his faithful people; praise his holy name. For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning. When I felt secure, I said, “I will never be shaken.”  LORD, when you favored me, you made my royal mountain stand firm; but when you hid your face, I was dismayed. To you, LORD, I called; to the Lord I cried for mercy: “What is gained if I am silenced, if I go down to the pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it proclaim your faithfulness? Hear, LORD, and be merciful to me; LORD, be my help.” You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent. LORD my God, I will praise you forever.

    In you, LORD, I have taken refuge; let me never be put to shame; deliver me in your righteousness. Turn your ear to me, come quickly to my rescue; be my rock of refuge, a strong fortress to save me. Since you are my rock and my fortress, for the sake of your name lead and guide me. Keep me free from the trap that is set for me, for you are my refuge. Into your hands I commit my spirit; deliver me, LORD, my faithful God. I hate those who cling to worthless idols; as for me, I trust in the LORD. I will be glad and rejoice in your love, for you saw my affliction and knew the anguish of my soul. You have not given me into the hands of the enemy but have set my feet in a spacious place.  Be merciful to me, LORD, for I am in distress; my eyes grow weak with sorrow, my soul and body with grief. My life is consumed by anguish and my years by groaning; my strength fails because of my affliction, and my bones grow weak. Because of all my enemies, I am the utter contempt of my neighbors and an object of dread to my closest friends, those who see me on the street flee from me. I am forgotten as though I were dead; I have become like broken pottery. For I hear many whispering, “Terror on every side!” They conspire against me and plot to take my life.

    But I trust in you, LORD; I say, “You are my God.” My times are in your hands; deliver me from the hands of my enemies, from those who pursue me. Let your face shine on your servant; save me in your unfailing love. Let me not be put to shame, LORD, for I have cried out to you; but let the wicked be put to shame and be silent in the realm of the dead. Let their lying lips be silenced, for with pride and contempt they speak arrogantly against the righteous. How abundant are the good things that you have stored up for those who fear you, that you bestow in the sight of all, on those who take refuge in you. In the shelter of your presence you hide them from all human intrigues; you keep them safe in your dwelling from accusing tongues. Praise be to the LORD, for he showed me the wonders of his love when I was in a city under siege. In my alarm I said, “I am cut off from your sight!” Yet you heard my cry for mercy when I called to you for help. Love the LORD, all his faithful people! The LORD preserves those who are true to him, but the proud he pays back in full. Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD.

    Blessed is the one whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. Blessed is the one whose sin the LORD does not count against them and in whose spirit is no deceit. When I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night your hand was heavy on me; my strength was sapped as in the heat of summer. Then I acknowledged my sin to you and did not cover up my iniquity. I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the LORD.” And you forgave the guilt of my sin. Therefore let all the faithful pray to you while you may be found; surely the rising of the mighty waters will not reach them. You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. Do not be like the horse or the mule, which have no understanding but must be controlled by bit and bridle or they will not come to you. Many are the woes of the wicked, but the LORD’s unfailing love surrounds the one who trusts in him. Rejoice in the LORD and be glad, you righteous; sing, all you who are upright in heart!

    Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him. Praise the LORD with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy. For the word of the LORD is right and true; he is faithful in all he does. The LORD loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love. By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth. He gathers the waters of the sea into jars; he puts the deep into storehouses. Let all the earth fear the LORD; let all the people of the world revere him. For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm. The LORD foils the plans of the nations; he thwarts the purposes of the peoples. But the plans of the LORD stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations. Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people he chose for his inheritance. From heaven the LORD looks down and sees all mankind; from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth, he who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do. No king is saved by the size of his army; no warrior escapes by his great strength. A horse is a vain hope for deliverance; despite all its great strength it cannot save. But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love, to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine. We wait in hope for the LORD; he is our help and our shield. In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name. May your unfailing love be with us, LORD, even as we put our hope in you.

    I will extol the LORD at all times; his praise will always be on my lips. I will glory in the LORD; let the afflicted hear and rejoice. Glorify the LORD with me; let us exalt his name together. I sought the LORD, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. This poor man called, and the LORD heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles. 7 The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them. 8 Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him. Fear the LORD, you his holy people, for those who fear him lack nothing. The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing. Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD. Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days, keep your tongue from evil and your lips from telling lies. Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it. The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, and his ears are attentive to their cry; but the face of the LORD is against those who do evil, to blot out their name from the earth. The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. The righteous person may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all; he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken. Evil will slay the wicked; the foes of the righteous will be condemned. The LORD will rescue his servants; no one who takes refuge in him will be condemned.

    Contend, LORD, with those who contend with me; fight against those who fight against me. Take up shield and armor; arise and come to my aid. Brandish spear and javelin against those who pursue me. Say to me, “I am your salvation.” May those who seek my life be disgraced and put to shame; may those who plot my ruin be turned back in dismay. May they be like chaff before the wind, with the angel of the LORD driving them away; may their path be dark and slippery, with the angel of the LORD pursuing them. Since they hid their net for me without cause and without cause dug a pit for me, may ruin overtake them by surprise, may the net they hid entangle them, may they fall into the pit, to their ruin. Then my soul will rejoice in the LORD and delight in his salvation. My whole being will exclaim, “Who is like you, LORD? You rescue the poor from those too strong for them, the poor and needy from those who rob them.” Ruthless witnesses come forward; they question me on things I know nothing about. They repay me evil for good and leave me like one bereaved. Yet when they were ill, I put on sackcloth and humbled myself with fasting. When my prayers returned to me unanswered, I went about mourning as though for my friend or brother. I bowed my head in grief as though weeping for my mother. But when I stumbled, they gathered in glee; assailants gathered against me without my knowledge. They slandered me without ceasing. Like the ungodly they maliciously mocked; they gnashed their teeth at me.

    How long, Lord, will you look on? Rescue me from their ravages, my precious life from these lions. I will give you thanks in the great assembly; among the throngs I will praise you. Do not let those gloat over me who are my enemies without cause; do not let those who hate me without reason maliciously wink the eye. They do not speak peaceably, but devise false accusations against those who live quietly in the land. They sneer at me and say, “Aha! Aha! With our own eyes we have seen it.” LORD, you have seen this; do not be silent. Do not be far from me, Lord. Awake, and rise to my defense! Contend for me, my God and Lord. Vindicate me in your righteousness, LORD my God; do not let them gloat over me. Do not let them think, “Aha, just what we wanted!” or say, “We have swallowed him up.” May all who gloat over my distress be put to shame and confusion; may all who exalt themselves over me be clothed with shame and disgrace. May those who delight in my vindication shout for joy and gladness; may they always say, “The LORD be exalted, who delights in the well-being of his servant.” My tongue will proclaim your righteousness, your praises all day long.

    I have a message from God in my heart concerning the sinfulness of the wicked:There is no fear of God before their eyes. In their own eyes they flatter themselves too much to detect or hate their sin. The words of their mouths are wicked and deceitful; they fail to act wisely or do good. Even on their beds they plot evil; they commit themselves to a sinful course and do not reject what is wrong. Your love, LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies. Your righteousness is like the highest mountains, your justice like the great deep. You, LORD, preserve both people and animals. How priceless is your unfailing love, O God! People take refuge in the shadow of your wings. They feast on the abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights. For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light. Continue your love to those who know you, your righteousness to the upright in heart. May the foot of the proud not come against me, nor the hand of the wicked drive me away. See how the evildoers lie fallen, thrown down, not able to rise!

    Do not fret because of those who are evil or be envious of those who do wrong; for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away. Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun. Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes. Refrain from anger and turn from wrath. Do not fret. It leads only to evil. For those who are evil will be destroyed, but those who hope in the LORD will inherit the land. A little while, and the wicked will be no more; though you look for them, they will not be found. But the meek will inherit the land and enjoy peace and prosperity. The wicked plot against the righteous and gnash their teeth at them; but the Lord laughs at the wicked, for he knows their day is coming. The wicked draw the sword and bend the bow to bring down the poor and needy, to slay those whose ways are upright. But their swords will pierce their own hearts, and their bows will be broken. Better the little that the righteous have than the wealth of many wicked; for the power of the wicked will be broken, but the LORD upholds the righteous. The blameless spend their days under the LORD’s care, and their inheritance will endure forever. In times of disaster they will not wither; in days of famine they will enjoy plenty.

    But the wicked will perish: Though the LORD’s enemies are like the flowers of the field, they will be consumed, they will go up in smoke. The wicked borrow and do not repay, but the righteous give generously; those the LORD blesses will inherit the land, but those he curses will be destroyed. The LORD makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with his hand. I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread. They are always generous and lend freely; their children will be a blessing. Turn from evil and do good; then you will dwell in the land forever. For the LORD loves the just and will not forsake his faithful ones. Wrongdoers will be completely destroyed; the offspring of the wicked will perish. The righteous will inherit the land and dwell in it forever. The mouths of the righteous utter wisdom, and their tongues speak what is just. The law of their God is in their hearts; their feet do not slip. The wicked lie in wait for the righteous, intent on putting them to death; but the LORD will not leave them in the power of the wicked or let them be condemned when brought to trial. Hope in the LORD and keep his way. He will exalt you to inherit the land; when the wicked are destroyed, you will see it. I have seen a wicked and ruthless man flourishing like a luxuriant native tree, but he soon passed away and was no more; though I looked for him, he could not be found. Consider the blameless, observe the upright; a future awaits those who seek peace. But all sinners will be destroyed; there will be no future for the wicked. The salvation of the righteous comes from the LORD; he is their stronghold in time of trouble. The LORD helps them and delivers them; he delivers them from the wicked and saves them, because they take refuge in him.

    LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your wrath. Your arrows have pierced me, and your hand has come down on me. Because of your wrath there is no health in my body; there is no soundness in my bones because of my sin. My guilt has overwhelmed me like a burden too heavy to bear. My wounds fester and are loathsome because of my sinful folly. I am bowed down and brought very low; all day long I go about mourning. My back is filled with searing pain; there is no health in my body. I am feeble and utterly crushed; I groan in anguish of heart. All my longings lie open before you, Lord; my sighing is not hidden from you. My heart pounds, my strength fails me; even the light has gone from my eyes. My friends and companions avoid me because of my wounds; my neighbors stay far away. Those who want to kill me set their traps, those who would harm me talk of my ruin; all day long they scheme and lie. I am like the deaf, who cannot hear, like the mute, who cannot speak; I have become like one who does not hear, whose mouth can offer no reply. LORD, I wait for you; you will answer, Lord my God. For I said, “Do not let them gloat or exalt themselves over me when my feet slip.” For I am about to fall, and my pain is ever with me. I confess my iniquity; I am troubled by my sin. Many have become my enemies without cause; those who hate me without reason are numerous. Those who repay my good with evil lodge accusations against me, though I seek only to do what is good. LORD, do not forsake me; do not be far from me, my God. Come quickly to help me, my Lord and my Savior.

    I said, “I will watch my ways and keep my tongue from sin; I will put a muzzle on my mouth while in the presence of the wicked.” So I remained utterly silent, not even saying anything good. But my anguish increased; my heart grew hot within me. While I meditated, the fire burned; then I spoke with my tongue: “Show me, LORD, my life’s end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting my life is. You have made my days a mere handbreadth; the span of my years is as nothing before you. Everyone is but a breath, even those who seem secure. “Surely everyone goes around like a mere phantom; in vain they rush about, heaping up wealth without knowing whose it will finally be. “But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you. Save me from all my transgressions; do not make me the scorn of fools. I was silent; I would not open my mouth, for you are the one who has done this. Remove your scourge from me; I am overcome by the blow of your hand. When you rebuke and discipline anyone for their sin, you consume their wealth like a moth. Surely everyone is but a breath. “Hear my prayer, LORD, listen to my cry for help; do not be deaf to my weeping. I dwell with you as a foreigner, a stranger, as all my ancestors were. Look away from me, that I may enjoy life again before I depart and am no more.”

    I waited patiently for the LORD; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the LORD and put their trust in him. Blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods. Many, LORD my God, are the wonders you have done, the things you planned for us. None can compare with you; were I to speak and tell of your deeds, they would be too many to declare. Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but my ears you have opened. Burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not require. Then I said, “Here I am, I have come, it is written about me in the scroll. I desire to do your will, my God; your law is within my heart.” I proclaim your saving acts in the great assembly; I do not seal my lips, LORD, as you know. I do not hide your righteousness in my heart; I speak of your faithfulness and your saving help. I do not conceal your love and your faithfulness from the great assembly.

    Do not withhold your mercy from me, LORD; may your love and faithfulness always protect me. For troubles without number surround me; my sins have overtaken me, and I cannot see. They are more than the hairs of my head, and my heart fails within me. Be pleased to save me, LORD; come quickly, LORD, to help me. May all who want to take my life be put to shame and confusion; may all who desire my ruin be turned back in disgrace. May those who say to me, “Aha! Aha!” be appalled at their own shame. But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; may those who long for your saving help always say, “The LORD is great!” But as for me, I am poor and needy; may the Lord think of me. You are my help and my deliverer; you are my God, do not delay.

    Blessed are those who have regard for the weak; the LORD delivers them in times of trouble. The LORD protects and preserves them. They are counted among the blessed in the land. He does not give them over to the desire of their foes. The LORD sustains them on their sickbed and restores them from their bed of illness. I said, “Have mercy on me, LORD; heal me, for I have sinned against you.” My enemies say of me in malice, “When will he die and his name perish?” When one of them comes to see me, he speaks falsely, while his heart gathers slander; then he goes out and spreads it around. All my enemies whisper together against me; they imagine the worst for me, saying, “A vile disease has afflicted him; he will never get up from the place where he lies.” Even my close friend, someone I trusted, one who shared my bread, has turned against me. But may you have mercy on me, LORD; raise me up, that I may repay them. I know that you are pleased with me, for my enemy does not triumph over me. Because of my integrity you uphold me and set me in your presence forever. Praise be to the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Amen and Amen.

    As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God? My tears have been my food day and night, while people say to me all day long, “Where is your God?” These things I remember as I pour out my soul: how I used to go to the house of God under the protection of the Mighty Onewith shouts of joy and praise among the festive throng. Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. My soul is downcast within me; therefore I will remember you from the land of the Jordan, the heights of Hermon, from Mount Mizar. Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me. By day the LORD directs his love, at night his song is with me, a prayer to the God of my life. I say to God my Rock, “Why have you forgotten me? Why must I go about mourning, oppressed by the enemy?” My bones suffer mortal agony as my foes taunt me, saying to me all day long, “Where is your God?” Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

    Vindicate me, my God, and plead my cause against an unfaithful nation. Rescue me from those who are deceitful and wicked. You are God my stronghold. Why have you rejected me? Why must I go about mourning, oppressed by the enemy? Send me your light and your faithful care, let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy mountain, to the place where you dwell. Then I will go to the altar of God, to God, my joy and my delight. I will praise you with the lyre, O God, my God. Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.

    We have heard it with our ears, O God; our ancestors have told us what you did in their days, in days long ago. With your hand you drove out the nations and planted our ancestors; you crushed the peoples and made our ancestors flourish. It was not by their sword that they won the land, nor did their arm bring them victory; it was your right hand, your arm, and the light of your face, for you loved them. You are my King and my God, who decrees victories for Jacob. Through you we push back our enemies; through your name we trample our foes. I put no trust in my bow, my sword does not bring me victory; but you give us victory over our enemies, you put our adversaries to shame. In God we make our boast all day long, and we will praise your name forever.

    But now you have rejected and humbled us; you no longer go out with our armies. You made us retreat before the enemy, and our adversaries have plundered us. You gave us up to be devoured like sheep and have scattered us among the nations. You sold your people for a pittance, gaining nothing from their sale. You have made us a reproach to our neighbors, the scorn and derision of those around us. You have made us a byword among the nations; the peoples shake their heads at us. I live in disgrace all day long, and my face is covered with shame at the taunts of those who reproach and revile me, because of the enemy, who is bent on revenge. All this came upon us, though we had not forgotten you; we had not been false to your covenant. Our hearts had not turned back; our feet had not strayed from your path. But you crushed us and made us a haunt for jackals; you covered us over with deep darkness. If we had forgotten the name of our God or spread out our hands to a foreign god, would not God have discovered it, since he knows the secrets of the heart? Yet for your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered. Awake, Lord! Why do you sleep? Rouse yourself! Do not reject us forever. Why do you hide your face and forget our misery and oppression? We are brought down to the dust; our bodies cling to the ground. Rise up and help us; rescue us because of your unfailing love.

    My heart is stirred by a noble theme as I recite my verses for the king; my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer. You are the most excellent of men and your lips have been anointed with grace, since God has blessed you forever. Gird your sword on your side, you mighty one; clothe yourself with splendor and majesty. In your majesty ride forth victoriously in the cause of truth, humility and justice; let your right hand achieve awesome deeds. Let your sharp arrows pierce the hearts of the king’s enemies; let the nations fall beneath your feet. Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever; a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom. You love righteousness and hate wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy. All your robes are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia; from palaces adorned with ivory the music of the strings makes you glad.

    Daughters of kings are among your honored women; at your right hand is the royal bride in gold of Ophir. Listen, daughter, and pay careful attention: Forget your people and your father’s house. Let the king be enthralled by your beauty; honor him, for he is your lord. The city of Tyre will come with a gift, people of wealth will seek your favor. All glorious is the princess within her chamber; her gown is interwoven with gold. In embroidered garments she is led to the king; her virgin companions follow her, those brought to be with her. Led in with joy and gladness, they enter the palace of the king. Your sons will take the place of your fathers; you will make them princes throughout the land. I will perpetuate your memory through all generations; therefore the nations will praise you for ever and ever.

    God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day. Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts. The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. Come and see what the LORD has done, the desolations he has brought on the earth. He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth. He breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire. He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.

    Clap your hands, all you nations; shout to God with cries of joy. For the LORD Most High is awesome, the great King over all the earth. He subdued nations under us, peoples under our feet. He chose our inheritance for us, the pride of Jacob, whom he loved. God has ascended amid shouts of joy, the LORD amid the sounding of trumpets. Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises. For God is the King of all the earth; sing to him a psalm of praise. God reigns over the nations; God is seated on his holy throne. The nobles of the nations assemble as the people of the God of Abraham, for the kings of the earth belong to God; he is greatly exalted.

    Great is the LORD, and most worthy of praise, in the city of our God, his holy mountain. Beautiful in its loftiness, the joy of the whole earth, like the heights of Zaphon is Mount Zion, the city of the Great King. God is in her citadels; he has shown himself to be her fortress. When the kings joined forces, when they advanced together, they saw her and were astounded; they fled in terror. Trembling seized them there, pain like that of a woman in labor. You destroyed them like ships of Tarshish shattered by an east wind. As we have heard, so we have seen in the city of the LORD Almighty, in the city of our God: God makes her secure forever. Within your temple, O God, we meditate on your unfailing love. Like your name, O God, your praise reaches to the ends of the earth; your right hand is filled with righteousness. Mount Zion rejoices, the villages of Judah are glad because of your judgments. Walk about Zion, go around her, count her towers, consider well her ramparts, view her citadels, that you may tell of them to the next generation. For this God is our God for ever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end.

    Hear this, all you peoples; listen, all who live in this world, both low and high, rich and poor alike: My mouth will speak words of wisdom; the meditation of my heart will give you understanding. I will turn my ear to a proverb; with the harp I will expound my riddle: Why should I fear when evil days come, when wicked deceivers surround me, those who trust in their wealth and boast of their great riches? No one can redeem the life of another or give to God a ransom for them. The ransom for a life is costly, no payment is ever enough, so that they should live on forever and not see decay. For all can see that the wise die, that the foolish and the senseless also perish, leaving their wealth to others. Their tombs will remain their houses forever, their dwellings for endless generations, though they had named lands after themselves.

    People, despite their wealth, do not endure; they are like the beasts that perish. This is the fate of those who trust in themselves, and of their followers, who approve their sayings. They are like sheep and are destined to die; death will be their shepherd (but the upright will prevail over them in the morning). Their forms will decay in the grave, far from their princely mansions. But God will redeem me from the realm of the dead; he will surely take me to himself. Do not be overawed when others grow rich, when the splendor of their houses increases; for they will take nothing with them when they die, their splendor will not descend with them. Though while they live they count themselves blessed, and people praise you when you prosper, they will join those who have gone before them, who will never again see the light of life. People who have wealth but lack understanding are like the beasts that perish.

    The Mighty One, God, the LORD, speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to where it sets. From Zion, perfect in beauty, God shines forth. Our God comes and will not be silent; a fire devours before him, and around him a tempest rages. He summons the heavens above, and the earth, that he may judge his people: “Gather to me this consecrated people, who made a covenant with me by sacrifice.” And the heavens proclaim his righteousness, for he is a God of justice. “Listen, my people, and I will speak; I will testify against you, Israel: I am God, your God. I bring no charges against you concerning your sacrifices or concerning your burnt offerings, which are ever before me. I have no need of a bull from your stall or of goats from your pens, for every animal of the forest is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills. I know every bird in the mountains, and the insects in the fields are mine. If I were hungry I would not tell you, for the world is mine, and all that is in it.

    Do I eat the flesh of bulls or drink the blood of goats? “Sacrifice thank offerings to God, fulfill your vows to the Most High, and call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me.” But to the wicked person, God says: “What right have you to recite my laws or take my covenant on your lips? You hate my instruction and cast my words behind you. When you see a thief, you join with him; you throw in your lot with adulterers. You use your mouth for evil and harness your tongue to deceit. You sit and testify against your brother and slander your own mother’s son. When you did these things and I kept silent, you thought I was exactly like you. But I now arraign you and set my accusations before you. "Consider this, you who forget God, or I will tear you to pieces, with no one to rescue you: Those who sacrifice thank offerings honor me, and to the blameless I will show my salvation.”

    Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me. Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight; so you are right in your verdict and justified when you judge. Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me. Yet you desired faithfulness even in the womb; you taught me wisdom in that secret place. Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones you have crushed rejoice. Hide your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquity. Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me. Then I will teach transgressors your ways, so that sinners will turn back to you. Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God, you who are God my Savior, and my tongue will sing of your righteousness. Open my lips, Lord, and my mouth will declare your praise. You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it; you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings. My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise. May it please you to prosper Zion, to build up the walls of Jerusalem. Then you will delight in the sacrifices of the righteous, in burnt offerings offered whole; then bulls will be offered on your altar.

    Why do you boast of evil, you mighty hero? Why do you boast all day long, you who are a disgrace in the eyes of God? You who practice deceit, your tongue plots destruction; it is like a sharpened razor. You love evil rather than good, falsehood rather than speaking the truth. You love every harmful word, you deceitful tongue! Surely God will bring you down to everlasting ruin: He will snatch you up and pluck you from your tent; he will uproot you from the land of the living. The righteous will see and fear; they will laugh at you, saying, “Here now is the man who did not make God his stronghold but trusted in his great wealth and grew strong by destroying others!” But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever. For what you have done I will always praise you in the presence of your faithful people. And I will hope in your name, for your name is good.

    The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, and their ways are vile; there is no one who does good. God looks down from heaven on all mankind to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God. Everyone has turned away, all have become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one. Do all these evildoers know nothing? They devour my people as though eating bread; they never call on God. But there they are, overwhelmed with dread, where there was nothing to dread. God scattered the bones of those who attacked you; you put them to shame, for God despised them. Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion! When God restores his people, let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad!

    Save me, O God, by your name; vindicate me by your might. Hear my prayer, O God; listen to the words of my mouth. Arrogant foes are attacking me; ruthless people are trying to kill me, people without regard for God. Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me. Let evil recoil on those who slander me; in your faithfulness destroy them. I will sacrifice a freewill offering to you; I will praise your name, LORD, for it is good. You have delivered me from all my troubles, and my eyes have looked in triumph on my foes.

    Listen to my prayer, O God, do not ignore my plea; hear me and answer me. My thoughts trouble me and I am distraught because of what my enemy is saying, because of the threats of the wicked; for they bring down suffering on me and assail me in their anger. My heart is in anguish within me; the terrors of death have fallen on me. Fear and trembling have beset me; horror has overwhelmed me. I said, “Oh, that I had the wings of a dove! I would fly away and be at rest. I would flee far away and stay in the desert; I would hurry to my place of shelter, far from the tempest and storm.” Lord, confuse the wicked, confound their words, for I see violence and strife in the city. Day and night they prowl about on its walls; malice and abuse are within it. Destructive forces are at work in the city; threats and lies never leave its streets. If an enemy were insulting me, I could endure it; if a foe were rising against me, I could hide. But it is you, a man like myself, my companion, my close friend, with whom I once enjoyed sweet fellowship at the house of God, as we walked about among the worshipers.

    Let death take my enemies by surprise; let them go down alive to the realm of the dead, for evil finds lodging among them. As for me, I call to God, and the LORD saves me. Evening, morning and noon I cry out in distress, and he hears my voice. He rescues me unharmed from the battle waged against me, even though many oppose me. God, who is enthroned from of old, who does not change, he will hear them and humble them, because they have no fear of God. My companion attacks his friends; he violates his covenant. His talk is smooth as butter, yet war is in his heart; his words are more soothing than oil, yet they are drawn swords. Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken. But you, God, will bring down the wicked into the pit of decay; the bloodthirsty and deceitful will not live out half their days. But as for me, I trust in you.

    Be merciful to me, my God, for my enemies are in hot pursuit; all day long they press their attack. My adversaries pursue me all day long; in their pride many are attacking me. When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise. In God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me? All day long they twist my words; all their schemes are for my ruin. They conspire, they lurk, they watch my steps, hoping to take my life. Because of their wickedness do not let them escape; in your anger, God, bring the nations down. Record my misery; list my tears on your scroll. Are they not in your record? Then my enemies will turn back when I call for help. By this I will know that God is for me. In God, whose word I praise, in the LORD, whose word I praise, in God I trust and am not afraid. What can man do to me? I am under vows to you, my God; I will present my thank offerings to you. For you have delivered me from death and my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before God in the light of life.

    Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me, for in you I take refuge. I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed. I cry out to God Most High, to God, who vindicates me. He sends from heaven and saves me, rebuking those who hotly pursue me. God sends forth his love and his faithfulness. I am in the midst of lions; I am forced to dwell among ravenous beasts, men whose teeth are spears and arrows, whose tongues are sharp swords. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth. They spread a net for my feet. I was bowed down in distress. They dug a pit in my path, but they have fallen into it themselves. My heart, O God, is steadfast, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and make music. Awake, my soul! Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn. I will praise you, Lord, among the nations; I will sing of you among the peoples. For great is your love, reaching to the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth.

    Do you rulers indeed speak justly? Do you judge people with equity? No, in your heart you devise injustice, and your hands mete out violence on the earth. Even from birth the wicked go astray; from the womb they are wayward, spreading lies. Their venom is like the venom of a snake, like that of a cobra that has stopped its ears, that will not heed the tune of the charmer, however skillful the enchanter may be. Break the teeth in their mouths, O God; LORD, tear out the fangs of those lions! Let them vanish like water that flows away; when they draw the bow, let their arrows fall short. May they be like a slug that melts away as it moves along, like a stillborn child that never sees the sun. Before your pots can feel the heat of the thorns, whether they be green or dry, the wicked will be swept away. The righteous will be glad when they are avenged, when they dip their feet in the blood of the wicked. Then people will say, “Surely the righteous still are rewarded; surely there is a God who judges the earth.”

    Deliver me from my enemies, O God; be my fortress against those who are attacking me. Deliver me from evildoers and save me from those who are after my blood. See how they lie in wait for me! Fierce men conspire against me for no offense or sin of mine, LORD. I have done no wrong, yet they are ready to attack me. Arise to help me; look on my plight! You, LORD God Almighty, you who are the God of Israel, rouse yourself to punish all the nations; show no mercy to wicked traitors. They return at evening, snarling like dogs, and prowl about the city. See what they spew from their mouths, the words from their lips are sharp as swords, and they think, “Who can hear us?” But you laugh at them, LORD; you scoff at all those nations. You are my strength, I watch for you; you, God, are my fortress, my God on whom I can rely.

    God will go before me and will let me gloat over those who slander me. But do not kill them, Lord our shield,or my people will forget. In your might uproot them and bring them down. For the sins of their mouths, for the words of their lips, let them be caught in their pride. For the curses and lies they utter, consume them in your wrath, consume them till they are no more. Then it will be known to the ends of the earth that God rules over Jacob. They return at evening, snarling like dogs, and prowl about the city. They wander about for food and howl if not satisfied. But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble. You are my strength, I sing praise to you; you, God, are my fortress, my God on whom I can rely.

    You have rejected us, God, and burst upon us; you have been angry! Now restore us! You have shaken the land and torn it open; mend its fractures, for it is quaking. You have shown your people desperate times; you have given us wine that makes us stagger. But for those who fear you, you have raised a banner to be unfurled against the bow. Save us and help us with your right hand, that those you love may be delivered. God has spoken from his sanctuary: “In triumph I will parcel out Shechem and measure off the Valley of Sukkoth. Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim is my helmet, Judah is my scepter. Moab is my washbasin, on Edom I toss my sandal; over Philistia I shout in triumph.” Who will bring me to the fortified city? Who will lead me to Edom? Is it not you, God, you who have now rejected us and no longer go out with our armies? Give us aid against the enemy, for human help is worthless. With God we will gain the victory, and he will trample down our enemies.

    Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer. From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe. I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings. For you, God, have heard my vows; you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name. Increase the days of the king’s life, his years for many generations. May he be enthroned in God’s presence forever; appoint your love and faithfulness to protect him. Then I will ever sing in praise of your name and fulfill my vows day after day.

    Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken. How long will you assault me? Would all of you throw me down, this leaning wall, this tottering fence? Surely they intend to topple me from my lofty place; they take delight in lies. With their mouths they bless, but in their hearts they curse. Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge. Surely the lowborn are but a breath, the highborn are but a lie. If weighed on a balance, they are nothing; together they are only a breath. Do not trust in extortion or put vain hope in stolen goods; though your riches increase, do not set your heart on them. One thing God has spoken, two things I have heard: “Power belongs to you, God, and with you, Lord, is unfailing love”; and, “You reward everyone according to what they have done.”

    You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water. I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory. Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands. I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you. On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night. Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings. I cling to you; your right hand upholds me. Those who want to kill me will be destroyed; they will go down to the depths of the earth. They will be given over to the sword and become food for jackals. But the king will rejoice in God; all who swear by God will glory in him, while the mouths of liars will be silenced.

    Hear me, my God, as I voice my complaint; protect my life from the threat of the enemy. Hide me from the conspiracy of the wicked, from the plots of evildoers. They sharpen their tongues like swords and aim cruel words like deadly arrows. They shoot from ambush at the innocent; they shoot suddenly, without fear. They encourage each other in evil plans, they talk about hiding their snares; they say, “Who will see it?” They plot injustice and say, “We have devised a perfect plan!” Surely the human mind and heart are cunning. But God will shoot them with his arrows; they will suddenly be struck down. He will turn their own tongues against them and bring them to ruin; all who see them will shake their heads in scorn. All people will fear; they will proclaim the works of God and ponder what he has done. The righteous will rejoice in the LORD and take refuge in him; all the upright in heart will glory in him!

    Praise awaits you, our God, in Zion; to you our vows will be fulfilled. You who answer prayer, to you all people will come. When we were overwhelmed by sins, you forgave our transgressions. Blessed are those you choose and bring near to live in your courts! We are filled with the good things of your house, of your holy temple. You answer us with awesome and righteous deeds, God our Savior, the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas, who formed the mountains by your power, having armed yourself with strength, who stilled the roaring of the seas, the roaring of their waves, and the turmoil of the nations. The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders; where morning dawns, where evening fades, you call forth songs of joy. You care for the land and water it; you enrich it abundantly. The streams of God are filled with water to provide the people with grain, for so you have ordained it. You drench its furrows and level its ridges; you soften it with showers and bless its crops. You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance. The grasslands of the wilderness overflow; the hills are clothed with gladness. The meadows are covered with flocks and the valleys are mantled with grain; they shout for joy and sing.

    Shout for joy to God, all the earth! Sing the glory of his name; make his praise glorious. Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies cringe before you. All the earth bows down to you; they sing praise to you, they sing the praises of your name.” Come and see what God has done, his awesome deeds for mankind! He turned the sea into dry land, they passed through the waters on foot. Come, let us rejoice in him. He rules forever by his power, his eyes watch the nations. Let not the rebellious rise up against him. Praise our God, all peoples, let the sound of his praise be heard; he has preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping. For you, God, tested us; you refined us like silver. You brought us into prison and laid burdens on our backs. You let people ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance. I will come to your temple with burnt offerings and fulfill my vows to you, vows my lips promised and my mouth spoke when I was in trouble. I will sacrifice fat animals to you and an offering of rams; I will offer bulls and goats. Come and hear, all you who fear God; let me tell you what he has done for me. I cried out to him with my mouth; his praise was on my tongue. If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened; but God has surely listened and has heard my prayer. Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me!

    May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine on us, so that your ways may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations. May the peoples praise you, God; may all the peoples praise you. May the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you rule the peoples with equity and guide the nations of the earth. May the peoples praise you, God; may all the peoples praise you. The land yields its harvest; God, our God, blesses us. May God bless us still, so that all the ends of the earth will fear him.

    May God arise, may his enemies be scattered; may his foes flee before him. May you blow them away like smoke, as wax melts before the fire, may the wicked perish before God. But may the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful. Sing to God, sing in praise of his name, extol him who rides on the clouds; rejoice before him, his name is the LORD. A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in families,he leads out the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land. When you, God, went out before your people, when you marched through the wilderness, the earth shook, the heavens poured down rain, before God, the One of Sinai, before God, the God of Israel. You gave abundant showers, O God; you refreshed your weary inheritance. Your people settled in it, and from your bounty, God, you provided for the poor. The Lord announces the word, and the women who proclaim it are a mighty throng: “Kings and armies flee in haste; the women at home divide the plunder. Even while you sleep among the sheep pens,the wings of my dove are sheathed with silver, its feathers with shining gold.” When the Almighty scattered the kings in the land, it was like snow fallen on Mount Zalmon. Mount Bashan, majestic mountain, Mount Bashan, rugged mountain, why gaze in envy, you rugged mountain, at the mountain where God chooses to reign, where the LORD himself will dwell forever? The chariots of God are tens of thousands and thousands of thousands; the Lord has come from Sinai into his sanctuary. When you ascended on high, you took many captives; you received gifts from people, even from the rebellious, that you, LORD God, might dwell there.

    Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens. Our God is a God who saves; from the Sovereign LORD comes escape from death. Surely God will crush the heads of his enemies, the hairy crowns of those who go on in their sins. The Lord says, “I will bring them from Bashan; I will bring them from the depths of the sea, that your feet may wade in the blood of your foes, while the tongues of your dogs have their share.” Your procession, God, has come into view, the procession of my God and King into the sanctuary. In front are the singers, after them the musicians; with them are the young women playing the timbrels. Praise God in the great congregation; praise the LORD in the assembly of Israel. There is the little tribe of Benjamin, leading them, there the great throng of Judah’s princes, and there the princes of Zebulun and of Naphtali. Summon your power, God ; show us your strength, our God, as you have done before. Because of your temple at Jerusalem kings will bring you gifts. Rebuke the beast among the reeds, the herd of bulls among the calves of the nations. Humbled, may the beast bring bars of silver. Scatter the nations who delight in war. Envoys will come from Egypt; Cush will submit herself to God. Sing to God, you kingdoms of the earth, sing praise to the Lord, to him who rides across the highest heavens, the ancient heavens, who thunders with mighty voice. Proclaim the power of God, whose majesty is over Israel, whose power is in the heavens. You, God, are awesome in your sanctuary; the God of Israel gives power and strength to his people. Praise be to God!

    Save me, O God, for the waters have come up to my neck. I sink in the miry depths, where there is no foothold. I have come into the deep waters; the floods engulf me. I am worn out calling for help; my throat is parched. My eyes fail, looking for my God. Those who hate me without reason outnumber the hairs of my head; many are my enemies without cause, those who seek to destroy me. I am forced to restore what I did not steal. You, God, know my folly; my guilt is not hidden from you. Lord, the LORD Almighty, may those who hope in you not be disgraced because of me; God of Israel, may those who seek you not be put to shame because of me. For I endure scorn for your sake, and shame covers my face. I am a foreigner to my own family, a stranger to my own mother’s children; for zeal for your house consumes me, and the insults of those who insult you fall on me. When I weep and fast, I must endure scorn; when I put on sackcloth, people make sport of me. Those who sit at the gate mock me, and I am the song of the drunkards. But I pray to you, LORD, in the time of your favor; in your great love, O God, answer me with your sure salvation. Rescue me from the mire, do not let me sink; deliver me from those who hate me, from the deep waters. Do not let the floodwaters engulf me or the depths swallow me up or the pit close its mouth over me. Answer me, LORD, out of the goodness of your love; in your great mercy turn to me. Do not hide your face from your servant; answer me quickly, for I am in trouble. Come near and rescue me; deliver me because of my foes. You know how I am scorned, disgraced and shamed; all my enemies are before you.

    Scorn has broken my heart and has left me helpless; I looked for sympathy, but there was none, for comforters, but I found none. They put gall in my food and gave me vinegar for my thirst. May the table set before them become a snare; may it become retribution and a trap. May their eyes be darkened so they cannot see, and their backs be bent forever. Pour out your wrath on them; let your fierce anger overtake them. May their place be deserted; let there be no one to dwell in their tents. For they persecute those you wound and talk about the pain of those you hurt. Charge them with crime upon crime; do not let them share in your salvation. May they be blotted out of the book of life and not be listed with the righteous. But as for me, afflicted and in pain— may your salvation, God, protect me. I will praise God’s name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving. This will please the LORD more than an ox, more than a bull with its horns and hooves. The poor will see and be glad, you who seek God, may your hearts live! The LORD hears the needy and does not despise his captive people. Let heaven and earth praise him, the seas and all that move in them, for God will save Zion and rebuild the cities of Judah. Then people will settle there and possess it; the children of his servants will inherit it, and those who love his name will dwell there.

    Hasten, O God, to save me; come quickly, LORD, to help me. May those who want to take my life be put to shame and confusion; may all who desire my ruin be turned back in disgrace. May those who say to me, “Aha! Aha!” turn back because of their shame. But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; may those who long for your saving help always say, “The LORD is great!” But as for me, I am poor and needy; come quickly to me, O God. You are my help and my deliverer; LORD, do not delay.

    In you, LORD, I have taken refuge; let me never be put to shame. In your righteousness, rescue me and deliver me; turn your ear to me and save me. Be my rock of refuge, to which I can always go; give the command to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress. Deliver me, my God, from the hand of the wicked, from the grasp of those who are evil and cruel. For you have been my hope, Sovereign LORD, my confidence since my youth. From birth I have relied on you; you brought me forth from my mother’s womb. I will ever praise you. I have become a sign to many; you are my strong refuge. My mouth is filled with your praise, declaring your splendor all day long. Do not cast me away when I am old; do not forsake me when my strength is gone. For my enemies speak against me; those who wait to kill me conspire together. They say, “God has forsaken him; pursue him and seize him, for no one will rescue him.” Do not be far from me, my God; come quickly, God, to help me. May my accusers perish in shame; may those who want to harm me be covered with scorn and disgrace.

    As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more. My mouth will tell of your righteous deeds, of your saving acts all day long, though I know not how to relate them all. I will come and proclaim your mighty acts, Sovereign LORD; I will proclaim your righteous deeds, yours alone. Since my youth, God, you have taught me, and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds. Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, my God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your mighty acts to all who are to come. Your righteousness, God, reaches to the heavens, you who have done great things. Who is like you, God? Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up. You will increase my honor and comfort me once more. I will praise you with the harp for your faithfulness, my God; I will sing praise to you with the lyre, Holy One of Israel. My lips will shout for joy when I sing praise to you, I whom you have delivered. My tongue will tell of your righteous acts all day long, for those who wanted to harm me have been put to shame and confusion.

    Endow the king with your justice, O God, the royal son with your righteousness. May he judge your people in righteousness, your afflicted ones with justice. May the mountains bring prosperity to the people, the hills the fruit of righteousness. May he defend the afflicted among the people and save the children of the needy; may he crush the oppressor. May he endure as long as the sun, as long as the moon, through all generations. May he be like rain falling on a mown field, like showers watering the earth. In his days may the righteous flourish and prosperity abound till the moon is no more. May he rule from sea to sea and from the River to the ends of the earth. May the desert tribes bow before him and his enemies lick the dust. May the kings of Tarshish and of distant shores bring tribute to him. May the kings of Sheba and Seba present him gifts. May all kings bow down to him and all nations serve him. For he will deliver the needy who cry out, the afflicted who have no one to help. He will take pity on the weak and the needy and save the needy from death. He will rescue them from oppression and violence, for precious is their blood in his sight. Long may he live! May gold from Sheba be given him. May people ever pray for him and bless him all day long. May grain abound throughout the land; on the tops of the hills may it sway. May the crops flourish like Lebanon and thrive like the grass of the field. May his name endure forever; may it continue as long as the sun. Then all nations will be blessed through him,and they will call him blessed. Praise be to the LORD God, the God of Israel, who alone does marvelous deeds. Praise be to his glorious name forever; may the whole earth be filled with his glory. Amen and Amen. This concludes the prayers of David son of Jesse.

    Surely God is good to Israel, to those who are pure in heart. But as for me, my feet had almost slipped; I had nearly lost my foothold. For I envied the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. They have no struggles; their bodies are healthy and strong. They are free from common human burdens; they are not plagued by human ills. Therefore pride is their necklace; they clothe themselves with violence. From their callous hearts comes iniquity; their evil imaginations have no limits. They scoff, and speak with malice; with arrogance they threaten oppression. Their mouths lay claim to heaven, and their tongues take possession of the earth. Therefore their people turn to them and drink up waters in abundance. They say, “How would God know? Does the Most High know anything?” This is what the wicked are like, always free of care, they go on amassing wealth. Surely in vain I have kept my heart pure and have washed my hands in innocence. All day long I have been afflicted, and every morning brings new punishments. If I had spoken out like that, I would have betrayed your children.

    When I tried to understand all this, it troubled me deeply till I entered the sanctuary of God; then I understood their final destiny. Surely you place them on slippery ground; you cast them down to ruin. How suddenly are they destroyed, completely swept away by terrors! They are like a dream when one awakes; when you arise, Lord, you will despise them as fantasies. When my heart was grieved and my spirit embittered, I was senseless and ignorant; I was a brute beast before you. Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory. Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Those who are far from you will perish; you destroy all who are unfaithful to you. But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign LORD my refuge; I will tell of all your deeds.

    O God, why have you rejected us forever? Why does your anger smolder against the sheep of your pasture? Remember the nation you purchased long ago, the people of your inheritance, whom you redeemed, Mount Zion, where you dwelt. Turn your steps toward these everlasting ruins, all this destruction the enemy has brought on the sanctuary. Your foes roared in the place where you met with us; they set up their standards as signs. They behaved like men wielding axes to cut through a thicket of trees. They smashed all the carved paneling with their axes and hatchets. They burned your sanctuary to the ground; they defiled the dwelling place of your Name. They said in their hearts, “We will crush them completely!” They burned every place where God was worshiped in the land. We are given no signs from God; no prophets are left, and none of us knows how long this will be. How long will the enemy mock you, God? Will the foe revile your name forever? Why do you hold back your hand, your right hand?

    Take it from the folds of your garment and destroy them! But God is my King from long ago; he brings salvation on the earth. It was you who split open the sea by your power; you broke the heads of the monster in the waters. It was you who crushed the heads of Leviathan and gave it as food to the creatures of the desert. It was you who opened up springs and streams; you dried up the ever-flowing rivers. The day is yours, and yours also the night; you established the sun and moon. It was you who set all the boundaries of the earth; you made both summer and winter. Remember how the enemy has mocked you, LORD, how foolish people have reviled your name. Do not hand over the life of your dove to wild beasts; do not forget the lives of your afflicted people forever. Have regard for your covenant, because haunts of violence fill the dark places of the land. Do not let the oppressed retreat in disgrace; may the poor and needy praise your name. Rise up, O God, and defend your cause; remember how fools mock you all day long. Do not ignore the clamor of your adversaries, the uproar of your enemies, which rises continually.

    We praise you, God, we praise you, for your Name is near; people tell of your wonderful deeds. You say, “I choose the appointed time; it is I who judge with equity. When the earth and all its people quake, it is I who hold its pillars firm. To the arrogant I say, ‘Boast no more,’ and to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up your horns. Do not lift your horns against heaven; do not speak so defiantly.’” No one from the east or the west or from the desert can exalt themselves. It is God who judges: He brings one down, he exalts another. In the hand of the LORD is a cup full of foaming wine mixed with spices; he pours it out, and all the wicked of the earth drink it down to its very dregs. As for me, I will declare this forever; I will sing praise to the God of Jacob, who says, “I will cut off the horns of all the wicked, but the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.”

    God is renowned in Judah; in Israel his name is great. His tent is in Salem, his dwelling place in Zion. There he broke the flashing arrows, the shields and the swords, the weapons of war. You are radiant with light, more majestic than mountains rich with game. The valiant lie plundered, they sleep their last sleep; not one of the warriors can lift his hands. At your rebuke, God of Jacob, both horse and chariot lie still. It is you alone who are to be feared. Who can stand before you when you are angry? From heaven you pronounced judgment, and the land feared and was quiet, when you, God, rose up to judge, to save all the afflicted of the land. Surely your wrath against mankind brings you praise, and the survivors of your wrath are restrained. Make vows to the LORD your God and fulfill them; let all the neighboring lands bring gifts to the One to be feared. He breaks the spirit of rulers; he is feared by the kings of the earth.

    I cried out to God for help; I cried out to God to hear me. When I was in distress, I sought the Lord; at night I stretched out untiring hands, and I would not be comforted. I remembered you, God, and I groaned; I meditated, and my spirit grew faint. You kept my eyes from closing; I was too troubled to speak. I thought about the former days, the years of long ago; I remembered my songs in the night. My heart meditated and my spirit asked: “Will the Lord reject forever? Will he never show his favor again? Has his unfailing love vanished forever? Has his promise failed for all time? Has God forgotten to be merciful? Has he in anger withheld his compassion?” Then I thought, “To this I will appeal: the years when the Most High stretched out his right hand. I will remember the deeds of the LORD; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago. I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds.” Your ways, God, are holy. What god is as great as our God? You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples. With your mighty arm you redeemed your people, the descendants of Jacob and Joseph. The waters saw you, God, the waters saw you and writhed; the very depths were convulsed. The clouds poured down water, the heavens resounded with thunder; your arrows flashed back and forth. Your thunder was heard in the whirlwind, your lightning lit up the world; the earth trembled and quaked. Your path led through the sea, your way through the mighty waters, though your footprints were not seen. You led your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.

    My people, hear my teaching; listen to the words of my mouth. I will open my mouth with a parable; I will utter hidden things, things from of old, things we have heard and known, things our ancestors have told us. We will not hide them from their descendants; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. He decreed statutes for Jacob and established the law in Israel, which he commanded our ancestors to teach their children, so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children. Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands. They would not be like their ancestors, a stubborn and rebellious generation, whose hearts were not loyal to God, whose spirits were not faithful to him.

    The men of Ephraim, though armed with bows, turned back on the day of battle; they did not keep God’s covenant and refused to live by his law. They forgot what he had done, the wonders he had shown them. He did miracles in the sight of their ancestors in the land of Egypt, in the region of Zoan. He divided the sea and led them through; he made the water stand up like a wall. He guided them with the cloud by day and with light from the fire all night. He split the rocks in the wilderness and gave them water as abundant as the seas; he brought streams out of a rocky crag and made water flow down like rivers. But they continued to sin against him, rebelling in the wilderness against the Most High. They willfully put God to the test by demanding the food they craved. They spoke against God; they said, “Can God really spread a table in the wilderness? True, he struck the rock, and water gushed out, streams flowed abundantly, but can he also give us bread? Can he supply meat for his people?”

    When the LORD heard them, he was furious; his fire broke out against Jacob, and his wrath rose against Israel, for they did not believe in God or trust in his deliverance. Yet he gave a command to the skies above and opened the doors of the heavens; he rained down manna for the people to eat, he gave them the grain of heaven. Human beings ate the bread of angels; he sent them all the food they could eat. He let loose the east wind from the heavens and by his power made the south wind blow. He rained meat down on them like dust, birds like sand on the seashore. He made them come down inside their camp, all around their tents. They ate till they were gorged. He had given them what they craved. But before they turned from what they craved, even while the food was still in their mouths, God’s anger rose against them; he put to death the sturdiest among them, cutting down the young men of Israel. In spite of all this, they kept on sinning; in spite of his wonders, they did not believe. So he ended their days in futility and their years in terror. Whenever God slew them, they would seek him; they eagerly turned to him again. They remembered that God was their Rock, that God Most High was their Redeemer. But then they would flatter him with their mouths, lying to him with their tongues; their hearts were not loyal to him, they were not faithful to his covenant. Yet he was merciful; he forgave their iniquities and did not destroy them. Time after time he restrained his anger and did not stir up his full wrath. He remembered that they were but flesh, a passing breeze that does not return.

    How often they rebelled against him in the wilderness and grieved him in the wasteland! Again and again they put God to the test; they vexed the Holy One of Israel. They did not remember his power, the day he redeemed them from the oppressor, the day he displayed his signs in Egypt, his wonders in the region of Zoan. He turned their river into blood; they could not drink from their streams. He sent swarms of flies that devoured them, and frogs that devastated them. He gave their crops to the grasshopper, their produce to the locust. He destroyed their vines with hail and their sycamore-figs with sleet. He gave over their cattle to the hail, their livestock to bolts of lightning. He unleashed against them his hot anger, his wrath, indignation and hostility, a band of destroying angels. He prepared a path for his anger; he did not spare them from death but gave them over to the plague. He struck down all the firstborn of Egypt, the firstfruits of manhood in the tents of Ham. But he brought his people out like a flock; he led them like sheep through the wilderness. He guided them safely, so they were unafraid; but the sea engulfed their enemies. And so he brought them to the border of his holy land, to the hill country his right hand had taken. He drove out nations before them and allotted their lands to them as an inheritance; he settled the tribes of Israel in their homes. But they put God to the test and rebelled against the Most High; they did not keep his statutes.

    Like their ancestors they were disloyal and faithless, as unreliable as a faulty bow. They angered him with their high places; they aroused his jealousy with their idols. When God heard them, he was furious; he rejected Israel completely. He abandoned the tabernacle of Shiloh, the tent he had set up among humans. He sent the ark of his might into captivity, his splendor into the hands of the enemy. He gave his people over to the sword; he was furious with his inheritance. Fire consumed their young men, and their young women had no wedding songs; their priests were put to the sword, and their widows could not weep. Then the Lord awoke as from sleep, as a warrior wakes from the stupor of wine. He beat back his enemies; he put them to everlasting shame. Then he rejected the tents of Joseph, he did not choose the tribe of Ephraim; but he chose the tribe of Judah, Mount Zion, which he loved. He built his sanctuary like the heights, like the earth that he established forever. He chose David his servant and took him from the sheep pens; from tending the sheep he brought him to be the shepherd of his people Jacob, of Israel his inheritance. And David shepherded them with integrity of heart; with skillful hands he led them.

    O God, the nations have invaded your inheritance; they have defiled your holy temple, they have reduced Jerusalem to rubble. They have left the dead bodies of your servants as food for the birds of the sky, the flesh of your own people for the animals of the wild. They have poured out blood like water all around Jerusalem, and there is no one to bury the dead. We are objects of contempt to our neighbors, of scorn and derision to those around us. How long, LORD? Will you be angry forever? How long will your jealousy burn like fire? Pour out your wrath on the nations that do not acknowledge you, on the kingdoms that do not call on your name; for they have devoured Jacob and devastated his homeland. Do not hold against us the sins of past generations; may your mercy come quickly to meet us, for we are in desperate need. Help us, God our Savior, for the glory of your name; deliver us and forgive our sins for your name’s sake. Why should the nations say, “Where is their God?” Before our eyes, make known among the nations that you avenge the outpoured blood of your servants. May the groans of the prisoners come before you; with your strong arm preserve those condemned to die. Pay back into the laps of our neighbors seven times the contempt they have hurled at you, Lord. Then we your people, the sheep of your pasture, will praise you forever; from generation to generation we will proclaim your praise.

    Hear us, Shepherd of Israel, you who lead Joseph like a flock. You who sit enthroned between the cherubim, shine forth before Ephraim, Benjamin and Manasseh. Awaken your might; come and save us. Restore us, O God; make your face shine on us, that we may be saved. How long, LORD God Almighty, will your anger smolder against the prayers of your people? You have fed them with the bread of tears; you have made them drink tears by the bowlful. You have made us an object of derision to our neighbors, and our enemies mock us. Restore us, God Almighty; make your face shine on us, that we may be saved. You transplanted a vine from Egypt; you drove out the nations and planted it. You cleared the ground for it, and it took root and filled the land. The mountains were covered with its shade, the mighty cedars with its branches. Its branches reached as far as the Sea, its shoots as far as the River. Why have you broken down its walls so that all who pass by pick its grapes? Boars from the forest ravage it, and insects from the fields feed on it. Return to us, God Almighty! Look down from heaven and see! Watch over this vine, the root your right hand has planted, the son you have raised up for yourself. Your vine is cut down, it is burned with fire; at your rebuke your people perish. Let your hand rest on the man at your right hand, the son of man you have raised up for yourself. Then we will not turn away from you; revive us, and we will call on your name. Restore us, LORD God Almighty; make your face shine on us, that we may be saved.

    Sing for joy to God our strength; shout aloud to the God of Jacob! Begin the music, strike the timbrel, play the melodious harp and lyre. Sound the ram’s horn at the New Moon, and when the moon is full, on the day of our festival; this is a decree for Israel, an ordinance of the God of Jacob. When God went out against Egypt, he established it as a statute for Joseph. I heard an unknown voice say: “I removed the burden from their shoulders; their hands were set free from the basket. In your distress you called and I rescued you, I answered you out of a thundercloud; I tested you at the waters of Meribah. Hear me, my people, and I will warn you, if you would only listen to me, Israel! You shall have no foreign god among you; you shall not worship any god other than me. I am the LORD your God, who brought you up out of Egypt. Open wide your mouth and I will fill it. “But my people would not listen to me; Israel would not submit to me. So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts to follow their own devices. “If my people would only listen to me, if Israel would only follow my ways, how quickly I would subdue their enemies and turn my hand against their foes! Those who hate the LORD would cringe before him, and their punishment would last forever. But you would be fed with the finest of wheat; with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.”

    God presides in the great assembly; he renders judgment among the “gods”: “How long will you defend the unjust and show partiality to the wicked? Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked. “The ‘gods’ know nothing, they understand nothing. They walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken. “I said, ‘You are “gods”; you are all sons of the Most High.’ But you will die like mere mortals; you will fall like every other ruler.” Rise up, O God, judge the earth, for all the nations are your inheritance.

    O God, do not remain silent; do not turn a deaf ear, do not stand aloof, O God. See how your enemies growl, how your foes rear their heads. With cunning they conspire against your people; they plot against those you cherish. “Come,” they say, “let us destroy them as a nation, so that Israel’s name is remembered no more.” With one mind they plot together; they form an alliance against you, the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, of Moab and the Hagrites, Byblos, Ammon and Amalek, Philistia, with the people of Tyre. Even Assyria has joined them to reinforce Lot’s descendants. Do to them as you did to Midian, as you did to Sisera and Jabin at the river Kishon, who perished at Endor and became like dung on the ground. Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna, who said, “Let us take possession of the pasturelands of God.” Make them like tumbleweed, my God, like chaff before the wind. As fire consumes the forest or a flame sets the mountains ablaze, so pursue them with your tempest and terrify them with your storm. Cover their faces with shame, LORD, so that they will seek your name. May they ever be ashamed and dismayed; may they perish in disgrace. Let them know that you, whose name is the LORD, that you alone are the Most High over all the earth.

    How lovely is your dwelling place, LORD Almighty! My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the LORD; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young, a place near your altar, LORD Almighty, my King and my God. Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you. Blessed are those whose strength is in you, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage. As they pass through the Valley of Baka, they make it a place of springs; the autumn rains also cover it with pools. They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion. Hear my prayer, LORD God Almighty; listen to me, God of Jacob. Look on our shield, O God; look with favor on your anointed one. Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked. For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless. LORD Almighty, blessed is the one who trusts in you.

    You, LORD, showed favor to your land; you restored the fortunes of Jacob. You forgave the iniquity of your people and covered all their sins. You set aside all your wrath and turned from your fierce anger. Restore us again, God our Savior, and put away your displeasure toward us. Will you be angry with us forever? Will you prolong your anger through all generations? Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you? Show us your unfailing love, LORD, and grant us your salvation. I will listen to what God the LORD says; he promises peace to his people, his faithful servants, but let them not turn to folly. Surely his salvation is near those who fear him, that his glory may dwell in our land. Love and faithfulness meet together; righteousness and peace kiss each other. Faithfulness springs forth from the earth, and righteousness looks down from heaven. The LORD will indeed give what is good, and our land will yield its harvest. Righteousness goes before him and prepares the way for his steps.

    Hear me, LORD, and answer me, for I am poor and needy. Guard my life, for I am faithful to you; save your servant who trusts in you. You are my God; have mercy on me, Lord, for I call to you all day long. Bring joy to your servant, Lord, for I put my trust in you. You, Lord, are forgiving and good, abounding in love to all who call to you. Hear my prayer, LORD; listen to my cry for mercy. When I am in distress, I call to you, because you answer me. Among the gods there is none like you, Lord; no deeds can compare with yours. All the nations you have made will come and worship before you, Lord; they will bring glory to your name. For you are great and do marvelous deeds; you alone are God. Teach me your way, LORD, that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name. I will praise you, Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your name forever. For great is your love toward me; you have delivered me from the depths, from the realm of the dead. Arrogant foes are attacking me, O God; ruthless people are trying to kill me. They have no regard for you. But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness. Turn to me and have mercy on me; show your strength in behalf of your servant; save me, because I serve you just as my mother did. Give me a sign of your goodness, that my enemies may see it and be put to shame, for you, LORD, have helped me and comforted me.

    He has founded his city on the holy mountain. The LORD loves the gates of Zion more than all the other dwellings of Jacob. Glorious things are said of you, city of God: “I will record Rahab and Babylon among those who acknowledge me, Philistia too, and Tyre, along with Cush, and will say, ‘This one was born in Zion.’” Indeed, of Zion it will be said, “This one and that one were born in her, and the Most High himself will establish her.” The LORD will write in the register of the peoples: “This one was born in Zion.” As they make music they will sing, “All my fountains are in you.”

    LORD, you are the God who saves me; day and night I cry out to you. May my prayer come before you; turn your ear to my cry. I am overwhelmed with troubles and my life draws near to death. I am counted among those who go down to the pit; I am like one without strength. I am set apart with the dead, like the slain who lie in the grave, whom you remember no more, who are cut off from your care. You have put me in the lowest pit, in the darkest depths. Your wrath lies heavily on me; you have overwhelmed me with all your waves. You have taken from me my closest friends and have made me repulsive to them. I am confined and cannot escape; my eyes are dim with grief. I call to you, LORD, every day; I spread out my hands to you. Do you show your wonders to the dead? Do their spirits rise up and praise you? Is your love declared in the grave, your faithfulness in Destruction? Are your wonders known in the place of darkness, or your righteous deeds in the land of oblivion? But I cry to you for help, LORD; in the morning my prayer comes before you. Why, LORD, do you reject me and hide your face from me? From my youth I have suffered and been close to death; I have borne your terrors and am in despair. Your wrath has swept over me; your terrors have destroyed me. All day long they surround me like a flood; they have completely engulfed me. You have taken from me friend and neighbor. Darkness is my closest friend.

    I will sing of the LORD’s great love forever; with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations. I will declare that your love stands firm forever, that you have established your faithfulness in heaven itself. You said, “I have made a covenant with my chosen one, I have sworn to David my servant, ‘I will establish your line forever and make your throne firm through all generations.’” The heavens praise your wonders, LORD, your faithfulness too, in the assembly of the holy ones. For who in the skies above can compare with the LORD? Who is like the LORD among the heavenly beings? In the council of the holy ones God is greatly feared; he is more awesome than all who surround him. Who is like you, LORD God Almighty? You, LORD, are mighty, and your faithfulness surrounds you. You rule over the surging sea; when its waves mount up, you still them. You crushed Rahab like one of the slain; with your strong arm you scattered your enemies. The heavens are yours, and yours also the earth; you founded the world and all that is in it. You created the north and the south; Tabor and Hermon sing for joy at your name. Your arm is endowed with power; your hand is strong, your right hand exalted. Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; love and faithfulness go before you. Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, LORD. They rejoice in your name all day long; they celebrate your righteousness. For you are their glory and strength, and by your favor you exalt our horn. Indeed, our shield belongs to the LORD, our king to the Holy One of Israel.

    Once you spoke in a vision, to your faithful people you said: “I have bestowed strength on a warrior; I have raised up a young man from among the people. I have found David my servant; with my sacred oil I have anointed him. My hand will sustain him; surely my arm will strengthen him. The enemy will not get the better of him; the wicked will not oppress him. I will crush his foes before him and strike down his adversaries. My faithful love will be with him, and through my name his horn will be exalted. I will set his hand over the sea, his right hand over the rivers. He will call out to me, ‘You are my Father, my God, the Rock my Savior.’ And I will appoint him to be my firstborn, the most exalted of the kings of the earth. I will maintain my love to him forever, and my covenant with him will never fail. I will establish his line forever, his throne as long as the heavens endure. "If his sons forsake my law and do not follow my statutes, if they violate my decrees and fail to keep my commands, I will punish their sin with the rod, their iniquity with flogging; but I will not take my love from him, nor will I ever betray my faithfulness. I will not violate my covenant or alter what my lips have uttered. Once for all, I have sworn by my holiness, and I will not lie to David, that his line will continue forever and his throne endure before me like the sun; it will be established forever like the moon, the faithful witness in the sky.”

    But you have rejected, you have spurned, you have been very angry with your anointed one. You have renounced the covenant with your servant and have defiled his crown in the dust. You have broken through all his walls and reduced his strongholds to ruins. All who pass by have plundered him; he has become the scorn of his neighbors. You have exalted the right hand of his foes; you have made all his enemies rejoice. Indeed, you have turned back the edge of his sword and have not supported him in battle. You have put an end to his splendor and cast his throne to the ground. You have cut short the days of his youth; you have covered him with a mantle of shame. How long, LORD? Will you hide yourself forever? How long will your wrath burn like fire? Remember how fleeting is my life. For what futility you have created all humanity! Who can live and not see death, or who can escape the power of the grave? Lord, where is your former great love, which in your faithfulness you swore to David? Remember, Lord, how your servant has been mocked, how I bear in my heart the taunts of all the nations, the taunts with which your enemies, LORD, have mocked, with which they have mocked every step of your anointed one. Praise be to the LORD forever! Amen and Amen.

    Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations. Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the whole world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. You turn people back to dust, saying, “Return to dust, you mortals.” A thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night. Yet you sweep people away in the sleep of death, they are like the new grass of the morning: In the morning it springs up new, but by evening it is dry and withered. We are consumed by your anger and terrified by your indignation. You have set our iniquities before you, our secret sins in the light of your presence. All our days pass away under your wrath; we finish our years with a moan. Our days may come to seventy years, or eighty, if our strength endures; yet the best of them are but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly pass, and we fly away. If only we knew the power of your anger! Your wrath is as great as the fear that is your due. Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. Relent, LORD! How long will it be? Have compassion on your servants. Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days. Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us, for as many years as we have seen trouble. May your deeds be shown to your servants, your splendor to their children. May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us. Yes, establish the work of our hands.

    Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. If you say, “The LORD is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”

    It is good to praise the LORD and make music to your name, O Most High, proclaiming your love in the morning and your faithfulness at night, to the music of the ten-stringed lyre and the melody of the harp. For you make me glad by your deeds, LORD; I sing for joy at what your hands have done. How great are your works, LORD, how profound your thoughts! Senseless people do not know, fools do not understand, that though the wicked spring up like grass and all evildoers flourish, they will be destroyed forever. But you, LORD, are forever exalted. For surely your enemies, LORD, surely your enemies will perish; all evildoers will be scattered. You have exalted my horn like that of a wild ox; fine oils have been poured on me. My eyes have seen the defeat of my adversaries; my ears have heard the rout of my wicked foes. The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon; planted in the house of the LORD, they will flourish in the courts of our God. They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green, proclaiming, “The LORD is upright; he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him.”

    The LORD reigns, he is robed in majesty; the LORD is robed in majesty and armed with strength; indeed, the world is established, firm and secure. Your throne was established long ago; you are from all eternity. The seas have lifted up, LORD, the seas have lifted up their voice; the seas have lifted up their pounding waves. Mightier than the thunder of the great waters, mightier than the breakers of the sea, the LORD on high is mighty. Your statutes, LORD, stand firm; holiness adorns your house for endless days.

    The LORD is a God who avenges. O God who avenges, shine forth. Rise up, Judge of the earth; pay back to the proud what they deserve. How long, LORD, will the wicked, how long will the wicked be jubilant? They pour out arrogant words; all the evildoers are full of boasting. They crush your people, LORD; they oppress your inheritance. They slay the widow and the foreigner; they murder the fatherless. They say, “The LORD does not see; the God of Jacob takes no notice.” Take notice, you senseless ones among the people; you fools, when will you become wise? Does he who fashioned the ear not hear? Does he who formed the eye not see? Does he who disciplines nations not punish? Does he who teaches mankind lack knowledge? The LORD knows all human plans; he knows that they are futile.

    Blessed is the one you discipline, LORD, the one you teach from your law; you grant them relief from days of trouble, till a pit is dug for the wicked. For the LORD will not reject his people; he will never forsake his inheritance. Judgment will again be founded on righteousness, and all the upright in heart will follow it. Who will rise up for me against the wicked? Who will take a stand for me against evildoers? Unless the LORD had given me help, I would soon have dwelt in the silence of death. When I said, “My foot is slipping,” your unfailing love, LORD, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy. Can a corrupt throne be allied with you, a throne that brings on misery by its decrees? The wicked band together against the righteous and condemn the innocent to death. But the LORD has become my fortress, and my God the rock in whom I take refuge. He will repay them for their sins and destroy them for their wickedness; the LORD our God will destroy them.

    Come, let us sing for joy to the LORD; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song. For the LORD is the great God, the great King above all gods. In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him. The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land. Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the LORD our Maker; for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care. Today, if only you would hear his voice, “Do not harden your hearts as you did at Meribah, as you did that day at Massah in the wilderness, where your ancestors tested me; they tried me, though they had seen what I did. For forty years I was angry with that generation; I said, ‘They are a people whose hearts go astray, and they have not known my ways.’ So I declared on oath in my anger, ‘They shall never enter my rest.’ ”

    Sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth. Sing to the LORD, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day. Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples. For great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the LORD made the heavens. Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and glory are in his sanctuary. Ascribe to the LORD, all you families of nations, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength. Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; bring an offering and come into his courts. Worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness; tremble before him, all the earth. Say among the nations, “The LORD reigns.” The world is firmly established, it cannot be moved; he will judge the peoples with equity. Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it. Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them; let all the trees of the forest sing for joy. Let all creation rejoice before the LORD, for he comes, he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples in his faithfulness.

    The LORD reigns, let the earth be glad; let the distant shores rejoice. Clouds and thick darkness surround him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne. Fire goes before him and consumes his foes on every side. His lightning lights up the world; the earth sees and trembles. The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, before the Lord of all the earth. The heavens proclaim his righteousness, and all peoples see his glory. All who worship images are put to shame, those who boast in idols, worship him, all you gods! Zion hears and rejoices and the villages of Judah are glad because of your judgments, LORD. For you, LORD, are the Most High over all the earth; you are exalted far above all gods. Let those who love the LORD hate evil, for he guards the lives of his faithful ones and delivers them from the hand of the wicked. Light shines on the righteous and joy on the upright in heart. Rejoice in the LORD, you who are righteous, and praise his holy name.

    Sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvelous things; his right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him. The LORD has made his salvation known and revealed his righteousness to the nations. He has remembered his love and his faithfulness to Israel; all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God. Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music; make music to the LORD with the harp, with the harp and the sound of singing, with trumpets and the blast of the ram’s horn, shout for joy before the LORD, the King. Let the sea resound, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it. Let the rivers clap their hands, let the mountains sing together for joy; let them sing before the LORD, for he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples with equity.

    The LORD reigns, let the nations tremble; he sits enthroned between the cherubim, let the earth shake. Great is the LORD in Zion; he is exalted over all the nations. Let them praise your great and awesome name, he is holy. The King is mighty, he loves justice. You have established equity; in Jacob you have done what is just and right. Exalt the LORD our God and worship at his footstool; he is holy. Moses and Aaron were among his priests, Samuel was among those who called on his name; they called on the LORD and he answered them. He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud; they kept his statutes and the decrees he gave them. LORD our God, you answered them; you were to Israel a forgiving God, though you punished their misdeeds. Exalt the LORD our God and worship at his holy mountain, for the LORD our God is holy.

    Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth. Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Know that the LORD is God. It is he who made us, and we are his ; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.

    I will sing of your love and justice; to you, LORD, I will sing praise. I will be careful to lead a blameless life. When will you come to me? I will conduct the affairs of my house with a blameless heart. I will not look with approval on anything that is vile. I hate what faithless people do; I will have no part in it. The perverse of heart shall be far from me; I will have nothing to do with what is evil. Whoever slanders their neighbor in secret, I will put to silence; whoever has haughty eyes and a proud heart, I will not tolerate. My eyes will be on the faithful in the land, that they may dwell with me; the one whose walk is blameless will minister to me. No one who practices deceit will dwell in my house; no one who speaks falsely will stand in my presence. Every morning I will put to silence all the wicked in the land; I will cut off every evildoer from the city of the LORD.

    Hear my prayer, LORD; let my cry for help come to you. Do not hide your face from me when I am in distress. Turn your ear to me; when I call, answer me quickly. For my days vanish like smoke; my bones burn like glowing embers. My heart is blighted and withered like grass; I forget to eat my food. In my distress I groan aloud and am reduced to skin and bones. I am like a desert owl, like an owl among the ruins. I lie awake; I have become like a bird alone on a roof. All day long my enemies taunt me; those who rail against me use my name as a curse. For I eat ashes as my food and mingle my drink with tears because of your great wrath, for you have taken me up and thrown me aside. My days are like the evening shadow; I wither away like grass. But you, LORD, sit enthroned forever; your renown endures through all generations. You will arise and have compassion on Zion, for it is time to show favor to her; the appointed time has come. For her stones are dear to your servants; her very dust moves them to pity.

    The nations will fear the name of the LORD, all the kings of the earth will revere your glory. For the LORD will rebuild Zion and appear in his glory. He will respond to the prayer of the destitute; he will not despise their plea. Let this be written for a future generation, that a people not yet created may praise the LORD: “The LORD looked down from his sanctuary on high, from heaven he viewed the earth, to hear the groans of the prisoners and release those condemned to death.” So the name of the LORD will be declared in Zion and his praise in Jerusalem when the peoples and the kingdoms assemble to worship the LORD. In the course of my life he broke my strength; he cut short my days. So I said: “Do not take me away, my God, in the midst of my days; your years go on through all generations. In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment. Like clothing you will change them and they will be discarded. But you remain the same, and your years will never end. The children of your servants will live in your presence; their descendants will be established before you.”

    Praise the LORD, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the LORD, my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. The LORD works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed. He made known his ways to Moses, his deeds to the people of Israel: The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever; he does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him.

    As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us. As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him; for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust. The life of mortals is like grass, they flourish like a flower of the field. The wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more. But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children, with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts. The LORD has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all. Praise the LORD, you his angels, you mighty ones who do his bidding, who obey his word. Praise the LORD, all his heavenly hosts, you his servants who do his will. Praise the LORD, all his works everywhere in his dominion. Praise the LORD, my soul.

    Praise the LORD, my soul. LORD my God, you are very great; you are clothed with splendor and majesty. The LORD wraps himself in light as with a garment; he stretches out the heavens like a tent and lays the beams of his upper chambers on their waters. He makes the clouds his chariot and rides on the wings of the wind. He makes winds his messengers, flames of fire his servants. He set the earth on its foundations; it can never be moved. You covered it with the watery depths as with a garment; the waters stood above the mountains. But at your rebuke the waters fled, at the sound of your thunder they took to flight; they flowed over the mountains, they went down into the valleys, to the place you assigned for them. You set a boundary they cannot cross; never again will they cover the earth. He makes springs pour water into the ravines; it flows between the mountains. They give water to all the beasts of the field; the wild donkeys quench their thirst. The birds of the sky nest by the waters; they sing among the branches. He waters the mountains from his upper chambers; the land is satisfied by the fruit of his work. He makes grass grow for the cattle, and plants for people to cultivate, bringing forth food from the earth: wine that gladdens human hearts, oil to make their faces shine, and bread that sustains their hearts. The trees of the LORD are well watered, the cedars of Lebanon that he planted. There the birds make their nests; the stork has its home in the junipers. The high mountains belong to the wild goats; the crags are a refuge for the hyrax. He made the moon to mark the seasons, and the sun knows when to go down.

    You bring darkness, it becomes night, and all the beasts of the forest prowl. The lions roar for their prey and seek their food from God. The sun rises, and they steal away; they return and lie down in their dens. Then people go out to their work, to their labor until evening. How many are your works, LORD! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures. there is the sea, vast and spacious, teeming with creatures beyond number, living things both large and small. There the ships go to and fro, and Leviathan, which you formed to frolic there. All creatures look to you to give them their food at the proper time. When you give it to them, they gather it up; when you open your hand, they are satisfied with good things. When you hide your face, they are terrified; when you take away their breath, they die and return to the dust. When you send your Spirit, they are created, and you renew the face of the ground. May the glory of the LORD endure forever; may the LORD rejoice in his works, he who looks at the earth, and it trembles, who touches the mountains, and they smoke. I will sing to the LORD all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live. May my meditation be pleasing to him, as I rejoice in the LORD. But may sinners vanish from the earth and the wicked be no more. Praise the LORD, my soul. Praise the LORD.

    Give praise to the LORD, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done. Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts. Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice. Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always. Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced, you his servants, the descendants of Abraham, his chosen ones, the children of Jacob. He is the LORD our God; his judgments are in all the earth. He remembers his covenant forever, the promise he made, for a thousand generations, the covenant he made with Abraham, the oath he swore to Isaac. He confirmed it to Jacob as a decree, to Israel as an everlasting covenant: “To you I will give the land of Canaan as the portion you will inherit.” When they were but few in number, few indeed, and strangers in it, they wandered from nation to nation, from one kingdom to another. He allowed no one to oppress them; for their sake he rebuked kings: “Do not touch my anointed ones; do my prophets no harm.” He called down famine on the land and destroyed all their supplies of food; and he sent a man before them, Joseph, sold as a slave. They bruised his feet with shackles, his neck was put in irons, till what he foretold came to pass, till the word of the LORD proved him true. The king sent and released him, the ruler of peoples set him free. He made him master of his household, ruler over all he possessed, to instruct his princes as he pleased and teach his elders wisdom. Then Israel entered Egypt; Jacob resided as a foreigner in the land of Ham.

    The LORD made his people very fruitful; he made them too numerous for their foes, whose hearts he turned to hate his people, to conspire against his servants. He sent Moses his servant, and Aaron, whom he had chosen. They performed his signs among them, his wonders in the land of Ham. He sent darkness and made the land dark, for had they not rebelled against his words? He turned their waters into blood, causing their fish to die. Their land teemed with frogs, which went up into the bedrooms of their rulers. He spoke, and there came swarms of flies, and gnats throughout their country. He turned their rain into hail, with lightning throughout their land; he struck down their vines and fig trees and shattered the trees of their country. He spoke, and the locusts came, grasshoppers without number; they ate up every green thing in their land, ate up the produce of their soil. Then he struck down all the firstborn in their land, the firstfruits of all their manhood. He brought out Israel, laden with silver and gold, and from among their tribes no one faltered. Egypt was glad when they left, because dread of Israel had fallen on them. He spread out a cloud as a covering, and a fire to give light at night. They asked, and he brought them quail; he fed them well with the bread of heaven. He opened the rock, and water gushed out; it flowed like a river in the desert. For he remembered his holy promise given to his servant Abraham. He brought out his people with rejoicing, his chosen ones with shouts of joy; he gave them the lands of the nations, and they fell heir to what others had toiled for, that they might keep his precepts and observe his laws. Praise the LORD.

    Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. Who can proclaim the mighty acts of the LORD or fully declare his praise? Blessed are those who act justly, who always do what is right. Remember me, LORD, when you show favor to your people, come to my aid when you save them, that I may enjoy the prosperity of your chosen ones, that I may share in the joy of your nation and join your inheritance in giving praise. We have sinned, even as our ancestors did; we have done wrong and acted wickedly. When our ancestors were in Egypt, they gave no thought to your miracles; they did not remember your many kindnesses, and they rebelled by the sea, the Red Sea. Yet he saved them for his name’s sake, to make his mighty power known. He rebuked the Red Sea, and it dried up; he led them through the depths as through a desert. He saved them from the hand of the foe; from the hand of the enemy he redeemed them. The waters covered their adversaries; not one of them survived. Then they believed his promises and sang his praise. But they soon forgot what he had done and did not wait for his plan to unfold.

    In the desert they gave in to their craving; in the wilderness they put God to the test. So he gave them what they asked for, but sent a wasting disease among them. In the camp they grew envious of Moses and of Aaron, who was consecrated to the LORD. The earth opened up and swallowed Dathan; it buried the company of Abiram. Fire blazed among their followers; a flame consumed the wicked. At Horeb they made a calf and worshiped an idol cast from metal. They exchanged their glorious God for an image of a bull, which eats grass. They forgot the God who saved them, who had done great things in Egypt, miracles in the land of Ham and awesome deeds by the Red Sea. So he said he would destroy them, had not Moses, his chosen one, stood in the breach before him to keep his wrath from destroying them. Then they despised the pleasant land; they did not believe his promise. They grumbled in their tents and did not obey the LORD. So he swore to them with uplifted hand that he would make them fall in the wilderness, make their descendants fall among the nations and scatter them throughout the lands. They yoked themselves to the Baal of Peor and ate sacrifices offered to lifeless gods; they aroused the LORD’s anger by their wicked deeds, and a plague broke out among them. But Phinehas stood up and intervened, and the plague was checked. This was credited to him as righteousness for endless generations to come.

    By the waters of Meribah they angered the LORD, and trouble came to Moses because of them; for they rebelled against the Spirit of God, and rash words came from Moses’ lips. They did not destroy the peoples as the LORD had commanded them, but they mingled with the nations and adopted their customs. They worshiped their idols, which became a snare to them. They sacrificed their sons and their daughters to false gods. They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan, and the land was desecrated by their blood. They defiled themselves by what they did; by their deeds they prostituted themselves. Therefore the LORD was angry with his people and abhorred his inheritance. He gave them into the hands of the nations, and their foes ruled over them. Their enemies oppressed them and subjected them to their power. Many times he delivered them, but they were bent on rebellion and they wasted away in their sin. Yet he took note of their distress when he heard their cry; for their sake he remembered his covenant and out of his great love he relented. He caused all who held them captive to show them mercy. Save us, LORD our God, and gather us from the nations, that we may give thanks to your holy name and glory in your praise. Praise be to the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Let all the people say, “Amen!” Praise the LORD.

    Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. Let the redeemed of the LORD tell their story, those he redeemed from the hand of the foe, those he gathered from the lands, from east and west, from north and south. Some wandered in desert wastelands, finding no way to a city where they could settle. They were hungry and thirsty, and their lives ebbed away. Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He led them by a straight way to a city where they could settle. Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind, for he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things. Some sat in darkness, in utter darkness, prisoners suffering in iron chains, because they rebelled against God’s commands and despised the plans of the Most High. So he subjected them to bitter labor; they stumbled, and there was no one to help. Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. He brought them out of darkness, the utter darkness, and broke away their chains. Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind, for he breaks down gates of bronze and cuts through bars of iron. Some became fools through their rebellious ways and suffered affliction because of their iniquities. They loathed all food and drew near the gates of death. Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress. He sent out his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave. Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind. Let them sacrifice thank offerings and tell of his works with songs of joy.

    Some went out on the sea in ships; they were merchants on the mighty waters. They saw the works of the LORD, his wonderful deeds in the deep. For he spoke and stirred up a tempest that lifted high the waves. They mounted up to the heavens and went down to the depths; in their peril their courage melted away. They reeled and staggered like drunkards; they were at their wits’ end. Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress. He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm, and he guided them to their desired haven. Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind. Let them exalt him in the assembly of the people and praise him in the council of the elders. He turned rivers into a desert, flowing springs into thirsty ground, and fruitful land into a salt waste, because of the wickedness of those who lived there. He turned the desert into pools of water and the parched ground into flowing springs; there he brought the hungry to live, and they founded a city where they could settle. They sowed fields and planted vineyards that yielded a fruitful harvest; he blessed them, and their numbers greatly increased, and he did not let their herds diminish. Then their numbers decreased, and they were humbled by oppression, calamity and sorrow; he who pours contempt on nobles made them wander in a trackless waste. But he lifted the needy out of their affliction and increased their families like flocks. The upright see and rejoice, but all the wicked shut their mouths. Let the one who is wise heed these things and ponder the loving deeds of the LORD.

    My heart, O God, is steadfast; I will sing and make music with all my soul. Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn. I will praise you, LORD, among the nations; will sing of you among the peoples. For great is your love, higher than the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth. Save us and help us with your right hand, that those you love may be delivered. God has spoken from his sanctuary: “In triumph I will parcel out Shechem and measure off the Valley of Sukkoth. Gilead is mine, Manasseh is mine; Ephraim is my helmet, Judah is my scepter. Moab is my washbasin, on Edom I toss my sandal; over Philistia I shout in triumph.” Who will bring me to the fortified city? Who will lead me to Edom? Is it not you, God, you who have rejected us and no longer go out with our armies? Give us aid against the enemy, for human help is worthless. With God we will gain the victory, and he will trample down our enemies.

    My God, whom I praise, do not remain silent, for people who are wicked and deceitful have opened their mouths against me; they have spoken against me with lying tongues. With words of hatred they surround me; they attack me without cause. In return for my friendship they accuse me, but I am a man of prayer. They repay me evil for good, and hatred for my friendship. Appoint someone evil to oppose my enemy; let an accuser stand at his right hand. When he is tried, let him be found guilty, and may his prayers condemn him. May his days be few; may another take his place of leadership. May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow. May his children be wandering beggars; may they be driven from their ruined homes. May a creditor seize all he has; may strangers plunder the fruits of his labor. May no one extend kindness to him or take pity on his fatherless children. May his descendants be cut off, their names blotted out from the next generation. May the iniquity of his fathers be remembered before the LORD; may the sin of his mother never be blotted out. May their sins always remain before the LORD, that he may blot out their name from the earth. For he never thought of doing a kindness, but hounded to death the poor and the needy and the brokenhearted. He loved to pronounce a curse, may it come back on him. He found no pleasure in blessing, may it be far from him. He wore cursing as his garment; it entered into his body like water, into his bones like oil. May it be like a cloak wrapped about him, like a belt tied forever around him. May this be the LORD’s payment to my accusers, to those who speak evil of me.

    But you, Sovereign LORD, help me for your name’s sake; out of the goodness of your love, deliver me. For I am poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within me. I fade away like an evening shadow; I am shaken off like a locust. My knees give way from fasting; my body is thin and gaunt. I am an object of scorn to my accusers; when they see me, they shake their heads. Help me, LORD my God; save me according to your unfailing love. Let them know that it is your hand, that you, LORD, have done it. While they curse, may you bless; may those who attack me be put to shame, but may your servant rejoice. May my accusers be clothed with disgrace and wrapped in shame as in a cloak. With my mouth I will greatly extol the LORD; in the great throng of worshipers I will praise him. For he stands at the right hand of the needy, to save their lives from those who would condemn them.

    The LORD says to my lord: “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet.” The LORD will extend your mighty scepter from Zion, saying, “Rule in the midst of your enemies!” Your troops will be willing on your day of battle. Arrayed in holy splendor, your young men will come to you like dew from the morning’s womb. The LORD has sworn and will not change his mind: “You are a priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.” The Lord is at your right hand; he will crush kings on the day of his wrath. He will judge the nations, heaping up the dead and crushing the rulers of the whole earth. He will drink from a brook along the way, and so he will lift his head high.

    Praise the LORD. I will extol the LORD with all my heart in the council of the upright and in the assembly. Great are the works of the LORD; they are pondered by all who delight in them. Glorious and majestic are his deeds, and his righteousness endures forever. He has caused his wonders to be remembered; the LORD is gracious and compassionate. He provides food for those who fear him; he remembers his covenant forever. He has shown his people the power of his works, giving them the lands of other nations. The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy. They are established for ever and ever, enacted in faithfulness and uprightness. He provided redemption for his people; he ordained his covenant forever. Holy and awesome is his name. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise.

    Praise the LORD. Blessed are those who fear the LORD, who find great delight in his commands. Their children will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed. Wealth and riches are in their houses, and their righteousness endures forever. Even in darkness light dawns for the upright, for those who are gracious and compassionate and righteous. Good will come to those who are generous and lend freely, who conduct their affairs with justice. Surely the righteous will never be shaken; they will be remembered forever. They will have no fear of bad news; their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the LORD. Their hearts are secure, they will have no fear; in the end they will look in triumph on their foes. They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor, their righteousness endures forever; their horn will be lifted high in honor. The wicked will see and be vexed, they will gnash their teeth and waste away; the longings of the wicked will come to nothing.

    Praise the LORD. Praise the LORD, you his servants; praise the name of the LORD. Let the name of the LORD be praised, both now and forevermore. From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the LORD is to be praised. The LORD is exalted over all the nations, his glory above the heavens. Who is like the LORD our God, the One who sits enthroned on high, who stoops down to look on the heavens and the earth? He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap; he seats them with princes, with the princes of his people. He settles the childless woman in her home as a happy mother of children. Praise the LORD.

    When Israel came out of Egypt, Jacob from a people of foreign tongue, Judah became God’s sanctuary, Israel his dominion. The sea looked and fled, the Jordan turned back; the mountains leaped like rams, the hills like lambs. Why was it, sea, that you fled? Why, Jordan, did you turn back? Why, mountains, did you leap like rams, you hills, like lambs? Tremble, earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob, who turned the rock into a pool, the hard rock into springs of water.

    Not to us, LORD, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness. Why do the nations say, “Where is their God?” Our God is in heaven; he does whatever pleases him. But their idols are silver and gold, made by human hands. They have mouths, but cannot speak, eyes, but cannot see. They have ears, but cannot hear, noses, but cannot smell. They have hands, but cannot feel, feet, but cannot walk, nor can they utter a sound with their throats. Those who make them will be like them, and so will all who trust in them. All you Israelites, trust in the LORD. He is their help and shield. House of Aaron, trust in the LORD. He is their help and shield. You who fear him, trust in the LORD. He is their help and shield. The LORD remembers us and will bless us: He will bless his people Israel, he will bless the house of Aaron, he will bless those who fear the LORD, small and great alike. May the LORD cause you to flourish, both you and your children. May you be blessed by the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. The highest heavens belong to the LORD, but the earth he has given to mankind. It is not the dead who praise the LORD, those who go down to the place of silence; it is we who extol the LORD, both now and forevermore. Praise the LORD.

    I love the LORD, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live. The cords of death entangled me, the anguish of the grave came over me; I was overcome by distress and sorrow. Then I called on the name of the LORD: “LORD, save me!” The LORD is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion. The LORD protects the unwary; when I was brought low, he saved me. Return to your rest, my soul, for the LORD has been good to you. For you, LORD, have delivered me from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before the LORD in the land of the living. I trusted in the LORD when I said, “I am greatly afflicted”; in my alarm I said, “Everyone is a liar.” What shall I return to the LORD for all his goodness to me? I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the LORD. I will fulfill my vows to the LORD in the presence of all his people. Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his faithful servants. Truly I am your servant, LORD; I serve you just as my mother did; you have freed me from my chains. I will sacrifice a thank offering to you and call on the name of the LORD. I will fulfill my vows to the LORD in the presence of all his people, in the courts of the house of the LORD, in your midst, Jerusalem. Praise the LORD.

    Praise the LORD, all you nations; extol him, all you peoples. For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever. Praise the LORD.

    Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. Let Israel say: “His love endures forever.” Let the house of Aaron say: “His love endures forever.” Let those who fear the LORD say: “His love endures forever.” When hard pressed, I cried to the LORD; he brought me into a spacious place. The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me? The LORD is with me; he is my helper. I look in triumph on my enemies. It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in humans. It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in princes. All the nations surrounded me, but in the name of the LORD I cut them down. They surrounded me on every side, but in the name of the LORD I cut them down. They swarmed around me like bees, but they were consumed as quickly as burning thorns; in the name of the LORD I cut them down. I was pushed back and about to fall, but the LORD helped me. The LORD is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation.

    Shouts of joy and victory resound in the tents of the righteous: “The LORD’s right hand has done mighty things! The LORD’s right hand is lifted high; the LORD’s right hand has done mighty things!” I will not die but live, and will proclaim what the LORD has done. The LORD has chastened me severely, but he has not given me over to death. Open for me the gates of the righteous; I will enter and give thanks to the LORD. This is the gate of the LORD through which the righteous may enter. I will give you thanks, for you answered me; you have become my salvation. The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; the LORD has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes. The LORD has done it this very day; let us rejoice today and be glad. LORD, save us! LORD, grant us success! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD. From the house of the LORD we bless you. The LORD is God, and he has made his light shine on us. With boughs in hand, join in the festal procession up to the horns of the altar. You are my God, and I will praise you; you are my God, and I will exalt you. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.

    Blessed are those whose ways are blameless, who walk according to the law of the LORD. Blessed are those who keep his statutes and seek him with all their heart. They do no wrong but follow his ways. You have laid down precepts that are to be fully obeyed. Oh, that my ways were steadfast in obeying your decrees! Then I would not be put to shame when I consider all your commands. I will praise you with an upright heart as I learn your righteous laws. I will obey your decrees; do not utterly forsake me. How can a young person stay on the path of purity? By living according to your word. I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands. I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. Praise be to you, LORD; teach me your decrees. With my lips I recount all the laws that come from your mouth. I rejoice in following your statutes as one rejoices in great riches. I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways. I delight in your decrees; I will not neglect your word. Be good to your servant while I live, that I may obey your word. Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law. I am a stranger on earth; do not hide your commands from me. My soul is consumed with longing for your laws at all times. You rebuke the arrogant, who are accursed, those who stray from your commands. Remove from me their scorn and contempt, for I keep your statutes.

    Though rulers sit together and slander me, your servant will meditate on your decrees. Your statutes are my delight; they are my counselors. I am laid low in the dust; preserve my life according to your word. I gave an account of my ways and you answered me; teach me your decrees. Cause me to understand the way of your precepts, that I may meditate on your wonderful deeds. My soul is weary with sorrow; strengthen me according to your word. Keep me from deceitful ways; be gracious to me and teach me your law. I have chosen the way of faithfulness; I have set my heart on your laws. I hold fast to your statutes, LORD; do not let me be put to shame. I run in the path of your commands, for you have broadened my understanding. Teach me, LORD, the way of your decrees, that I may follow it to the end. Give me understanding, so that I may keep your law and obey it with all my heart. Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight. Turn my heart toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain. Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life according to your word. Fulfill your promise to your servant, so that you may be feared. Take away the disgrace I dread, for your laws are good.

    How I long for your precepts! In your righteousness preserve my life. May your unfailing love come to me, LORD, your salvation, according to your promise; then I can answer anyone who taunts me, for I trust in your word. Never take your word of truth from my mouth, for I have put my hope in your laws. I will always obey your law, for ever and ever. I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts. I will speak of your statutes before kings and will not be put to shame, for I delight in your commands because I love them. I reach out for your commands, which I love, that I may meditate on your decrees. Remember your word to your servant, for you have given me hope. My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life. The arrogant mock me unmercifully, but I do not turn from your law. I remember, LORD, your ancient laws, and I find comfort in them. Indignation grips me because of the wicked, who have forsaken your law. Your decrees are the theme of my song wherever I lodge. In the night, LORD, I remember your name, that I may keep your law. This has been my practice: I obey your precepts. You are my portion, LORD; I have promised to obey your words. I have sought your face with all my heart; be gracious to me according to your promise. I have considered my ways and have turned my steps to your statutes. I will hasten and not delay to obey your commands. Though the wicked bind me with ropes, I will not forget your law. At midnight I rise to give you thanks for your righteous laws. I am a friend to all who fear you, to all who follow your precepts. The earth is filled with your love, LORD; teach me your decrees.

    Do good to your servant according to your word, LORD. Teach me knowledge and good judgment, for I trust your commands. Before I was afflicted I went astray, but now I obey your word. You are good, and what you do is good; teach me your decrees. Though the arrogant have smeared me with lies, I keep your precepts with all my heart. Their hearts are callous and unfeeling, but I delight in your law. It was good for me to be afflicted so that I might learn your decrees. The law from your mouth is more precious to me than thousands of pieces of silver and gold. Your hands made me and formed me; give me understanding to learn your commands. May those who fear you rejoice when they see me, for I have put my hope in your word. I know, LORD, that your laws are righteous, and that in faithfulness you have afflicted me. May your unfailing love be my comfort, according to your promise to your servant. Let your compassion come to me that I may live, for your law is my delight. May the arrogant be put to shame for wronging me without cause; but I will meditate on your precepts. May those who fear you turn to me, those who understand your statutes. May I wholeheartedly follow your decrees, that I may not be put to shame.

    My soul faints with longing for your salvation, but I have put my hope in your word. My eyes fail, looking for your promise; I say, “When will you comfort me?” Though I am like a wineskin in the smoke, I do not forget your decrees. How long must your servant wait? When will you punish my persecutors? The arrogant dig pits to trap me, contrary to your law. All your commands are trustworthy; help me, for I am being persecuted without cause. They almost wiped me from the earth, but I have not forsaken your precepts. In your unfailing love preserve my life, that I may obey the statutes of your mouth. Your word, LORD, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens. Your faithfulness continues through all generations; you established the earth, and it endures. Your laws endure to this day, for all things serve you. If your law had not been my delight, I would have perished in my affliction.

    I will never forget your precepts, for by them you have preserved my life. Save me, for I am yours; I have sought out your precepts. The wicked are waiting to destroy me, but I will ponder your statutes. To all perfection I see a limit, but your commands are boundless. Oh, how I love your law! I meditate on it all day long. Your commands are always with me and make me wiser than my enemies. I have more insight than all my teachers, for I meditate on your statutes. I have more understanding than the elders, for I obey your precepts. I have kept my feet from every evil path so that I might obey your word. I have not departed from your laws, for you yourself have taught me. How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! I gain understanding from your precepts; therefore I hate every wrong path. Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. I have taken an oath and confirmed it, that I will follow your righteous laws. I have suffered much; preserve my life, LORD, according to your word. Accept, LORD, the willing praise of my mouth, and teach me your laws. Though I constantly take my life in my hands, I will not forget your law. The wicked have set a snare for me, but I have not strayed from your precepts. Your statutes are my heritage forever; they are the joy of my heart. My heart is set on keeping your decrees to the very end. I hate double-minded people, but I love your law. You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word.

    Away from me, you evildoers, that I may keep the commands of my God! Sustain me, my God, according to your promise, and I will live; do not let my hopes be dashed. Uphold me, and I will be delivered; I will always have regard for your decrees. You reject all who stray from your decrees, for their delusions come to nothing. All the wicked of the earth you discard like dross; therefore I love your statutes. My flesh trembles in fear of you; I stand in awe of your laws. I have done what is righteous and just; do not leave me to my oppressors. Ensure your servant’s well-being; do not let the arrogant oppress me. My eyes fail, looking for your salvation, looking for your righteous promise. Deal with your servant according to your love and teach me your decrees. I am your servant; give me discernment that I may understand your statutes. It is time for you to act, LORD; your law is being broken. Because I love your commands more than gold, more than pure gold, and because I consider all your precepts right, I hate every wrong path. Your statutes are wonderful; therefore I obey them. The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple. I open my mouth and pant, longing for your commands. Turn to me and have mercy on me, as you always do to those who love your name. Direct my footsteps according to your word; let no sin rule over me. Redeem me from human oppression, that I may obey your precepts.

    Make your face shine on your servant and teach me your decrees. Streams of tears flow from my eyes, for your law is not obeyed. You are righteous, LORD, and your laws are right. The statutes you have laid down are righteous; they are fully trustworthy. My zeal wears me out, for my enemies ignore your words. Your promises have been thoroughly tested, and your servant loves them. Though I am lowly and despised, I do not forget your precepts. Your righteousness is everlasting and your law is true. Trouble and distress have come upon me, but your commands give me delight. Your statutes are always righteous; give me understanding that I may live. I call with all my heart; answer me, LORD, and I will obey your decrees. I call out to you; save me and I will keep your statutes. I rise before dawn and cry for help; I have put my hope in your word. My eyes stay open through the watches of the night, that I may meditate on your promises. Hear my voice in accordance with your love; preserve my life, LORD, according to your laws. Those who devise wicked schemes are near, but they are far from your law. Yet you are near, LORD, and all your commands are true. Long ago I learned from your statutes that you established them to last forever. Look on my suffering and deliver me, for I have not forgotten your law. Defend my cause and redeem me; preserve my life according to your promise. Salvation is far from the wicked, for they do not seek out your decrees.

    Your compassion, LORD, is great; preserve my life according to your laws. Many are the foes who persecute me, but I have not turned from your statutes. I look on the faithless with loathing, for they do not obey your word. See how I love your precepts; preserve my life, LORD, in accordance with your love. All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal. Rulers persecute me without cause, but my heart trembles at your word. I rejoice in your promise like one who finds great spoil. I hate and detest falsehood but I love your law. Seven times a day I praise you for your righteous laws. Great peace have those who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble. I wait for your salvation, LORD, and I follow your commands. I obey your statutes, for I love them greatly. I obey your precepts and your statutes, for all my ways are known to you. May my cry come before you, LORD; give me understanding according to your word. May my supplication come before you; deliver me according to your promise. May my lips overflow with praise, for you teach me your decrees. May my tongue sing of your word, for all your commands are righteous. May your hand be ready to help me, for I have chosen your precepts. I long for your salvation, LORD, and your law gives me delight. Let me live that I may praise you, and may your laws sustain me. I have strayed like a lost sheep. Seek your servant, for I have not forgotten your commands.

    I call on the LORD in my distress, and he answers me. Save me, LORD, from lying lips and from deceitful tongues. What will he do to you, and what more besides, you deceitful tongue? He will punish you with a warrior’s sharp arrows, with burning coals of the broom bush. Woe to me that I dwell in Meshek, that I live among the tents of Kedar! Too long have I lived among those who hate peace. I am for peace; but when I speak, they are for war.

    I lift up my eyes to the mountains. Where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip. He who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD watches over you. The LORD is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The LORD will keep you from all harm. He will watch over your life; the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.

    I rejoiced with those who said to me, “Let us go to the house of the LORD.” Our feet are standing in your gates, Jerusalem. Jerusalem is built like a city that is closely compacted together. That is where the tribes go up. The tribes of the LORD, to praise the name of the LORD according to the statute given to Israel. There stand the thrones for judgment, the thrones of the house of David. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: “May those who love you be secure. May there be peace within your walls and security within your citadels.” For the sake of my family and friends, I will say, “Peace be within you.” For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek your prosperity.

    I lift up my eyes to you, to you who sit enthroned in heaven. As the eyes of slaves look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a female slave look to the hand of her mistress, so our eyes look to the LORD our God, till he shows us his mercy. Have mercy on us, LORD, have mercy on us, for we have endured no end of contempt. We have endured no end of ridicule from the arrogant, of contempt from the proud.

    If the LORD had not been on our side, let Israel say, if the LORD had not been on our side when people attacked us, they would have swallowed us alive when their anger flared against us; the flood would have engulfed us, the torrent would have swept over us, the raging waters would have swept us away. Praise be to the LORD, who has not let us be torn by their teeth. We have escaped like a bird from the fowler’s snare; the snare has been broken, and we have escaped. Our help is in the name of the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.

    Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people both now and forevermore. The scepter of the wicked will not remain over the land allotted to the righteous, for then the righteous might use their hands to do evil. LORD, do good to those who are good, to those who are upright in heart. But those who turn to crooked ways the LORD will banish with the evildoers. Peace be on Israel.

    When the LORD restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dreamed. Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, “The LORD has done great things for them.” The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. Restore our fortunes, LORD, like streams in the Negev. Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them.

    Unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain. In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat, for he grants sleep to those he loves. Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court.

    Blessed are all who fear the LORD, who walk in obedience to him. You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours. Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table. Yes, this will be the blessing for the man who fears the LORD. May the LORD bless you from Zion; may you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life. May you live to see your children’s children. Peace be on Israel.

    “They have greatly oppressed me from my youth,” let Israel say; “they have greatly oppressed me from my youth, but they have not gained the victory over me. Plowmen have plowed my back and made their furrows long. But the LORD is righteous; he has cut me free from the cords of the wicked.” May all who hate Zion be turned back in shame. May they be like grass on the roof, which withers before it can grow; a reaper cannot fill his hands with it, nor one who gathers fill his arms. May those who pass by not say to them, “The blessing of the LORD be on you; we bless you in the name of the LORD.”

    Out of the depths I cry to you, LORD; Lord, hear my voice. Let your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy. If you, LORD, kept a record of sins, Lord, who could stand? But with you there is forgiveness, so that we can, with reverence, serve you. I wait for the LORD, my whole being waits, and in his word I put my hope. I wait for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning, more than watchmen wait for the morning. Israel, put your hope in the LORD, for with the LORD is unfailing love and with him is full redemption. He himself will redeem Israel from all their sins.

    My heart is not proud, LORD, my eyes are not haughty; I do not concern myself with great matters or things too wonderful for me. But I have calmed and quieted myself, I am like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child I am content. Israel, put your hope in the LORD both now and forevermore.

    LORD, remember David and all his self-denial. He swore an oath to the LORD, he made a vow to the Mighty One of Jacob: “I will not enter my house or go to my bed, I will allow no sleep to my eyes or slumber to my eyelids, till I find a place for the LORD, a dwelling for the Mighty One of Jacob.” We heard it in Ephrathah, we came upon it in the fields of Jaar: “Let us go to his dwelling place, let us worship at his footstool, saying, ‘Arise, LORD, and come to your resting place, you and the ark of your might. May your priests be clothed with your righteousness; may your faithful people sing for joy.’” For the sake of your servant David, do not reject your anointed one. The LORD swore an oath to David, a sure oath he will not revoke: “One of your own descendants I will place on your throne. If your sons keep my covenant and the statutes I teach them, then their sons will sit on your throne for ever and ever.” For the LORD has chosen Zion, he has desired it for his dwelling, saying, “This is my resting place for ever and ever; here I will sit enthroned, for I have desired it. I will bless her with abundant provisions; her poor I will satisfy with food. I will clothe her priests with salvation, and her faithful people will ever sing for joy. "Here I will make a horn grow for David and set up a lamp for my anointed one. I will clothe his enemies with shame, but his head will be adorned with a radiant crown.”

    How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity! It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard, running down on Aaron’s beard, down on the collar of his robe. It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion. For there the LORD bestows his blessing, even life forevermore.

    Praise the LORD, all you servants of the LORD who minister by night in the house of the LORD. Lift up your hands in the sanctuary and praise the LORD. May the LORD bless you from Zion, he who is the Maker of heaven and earth.

    Praise the LORD. Praise the name of the LORD; praise him, you servants of the LORD, you who minister in the house of the LORD, in the courts of the house of our God. Praise the LORD, for the LORD is good; sing praise to his name, for that is pleasant. For the LORD has chosen Jacob to be his own, Israel to be his treasured possession. I know that the LORD is great, that our Lord is greater than all gods. The LORD does whatever pleases him, in the heavens and on the earth, in the seas and all their depths. He makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth; he sends lightning with the rain and brings out the wind from his storehouses. He struck down the firstborn of Egypt, the firstborn of people and animals. He sent his signs and wonders into your midst, Egypt, against Pharaoh and all his servants. He struck down many nations and killed mighty kings. Sihon king of the Amorites, Og king of Bashan, and all the kings of Canaan, and he gave their land as an inheritance, an inheritance to his people Israel. Your name, LORD, endures forever, your renown, LORD, through all generations. For the LORD will vindicate his people and have compassion on his servants. The idols of the nations are silver and gold, made by human hands. They have mouths, but cannot speak, eyes, but cannot see. They have ears, but cannot hear, nor is there breath in their mouths. Those who make them will be like them, and so will all who trust in them. All you Israelites, praise the LORD; house of Aaron, praise the LORD; house of Levi, praise the LORD; you who fear him, praise the LORD. Praise be to the LORD from Zion, to him who dwells in Jerusalem. Praise the LORD.

    Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good. His love endures forever. Give thanks to the God of gods. His love endures forever. Give thanks to the Lord of lords: His love endures forever. To him who alone does great wonders, His love endures forever. Who by his understanding made the heavens, His love endures forever. Who spread out the earth upon the waters, His love endures forever. Who made the great lights, His love endures forever. The sun to govern the day, His love endures forever. The moon and stars to govern the night; His love endures forever. To him who struck down the firstborn of Egypt His love endures forever. And brought Israel out from among them His love endures forever. With a mighty hand and outstretched arm; His love endures forever. To him who divided the Red Sea asunder, His love endures forever. And brought Israel through the midst of it, His love endures forever. But swept Pharaoh and his army into the Red Sea; His love endures forever. To him who led his people through the wilderness; His love endures forever. To him who struck down great kings, His love endures forever. And killed mighty kings, His love endures forever. Sihon king of the Amorites His love endures forever. And Og king of Bashan, His love endures forever. And gave their land as an inheritance, His love endures forever. An inheritance to his servant Israel, His love endures forever. He remembered us in our low estate His love endures forever. And freed us from our enemies. His love endures forever. He gives food to every creature. His love endures forever. Give thanks to the God of heaven. His love endures forever.

    By the rivers of Babylon we sat and wept when we remembered Zion. There on the poplars we hung our harps, for there our captors asked us for songs, our tormentors demanded songs of joy; they said, “Sing us one of the songs of Zion!” How can we sing the songs of the LORD while in a foreign land? If I forget you, Jerusalem, may my right hand forget its skill. May my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth if I do not remember you, if I do not consider Jerusalem my highest joy. Remember, LORD, what the Edomites did on the day Jerusalem fell. “Tear it down,” they cried, “tear it down to its foundations!” Daughter Babylon, doomed to destruction, happy is the one who repays you according to what you have done to us. Happy is the one who seizes your infants and dashes them against the rocks.

    I will praise you, LORD, with all my heart; before the “gods” I will sing your praise. I will bow down toward your holy temple and will praise your name for your unfailing love and your faithfulness, for you have so exalted your solemn decree that it surpasses your fame. When I called, you answered me; you greatly emboldened me. May all the kings of the earth praise you, LORD, when they hear what you have decreed. May they sing of the ways of the LORD, for the glory of the LORD is great. Though the LORD is exalted, he looks kindly on the lowly; though lofty, he sees them from afar. Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life. You stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes; with your right hand you save me. The LORD will vindicate me; your love, LORD, endures forever. Do not abandon the works of your hands.

    You have searched me, LORD, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you, LORD, know it completely. You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain. Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you. For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with you. If only you, God, would slay the wicked! Away from me, you who are bloodthirsty! They speak of you with evil intent; your adversaries misuse your name. Do I not hate those who hate you, LORD, and abhor those who are in rebellion against you? I have nothing but hatred for them; I count them my enemies. Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

    Rescue me, LORD, from evildoers; protect me from the violent, who devise evil plans in their hearts and stir up war every day. They make their tongues as sharp as a serpent’s; the poison of vipers is on their lips. Keep me safe, LORD, from the hands of the wicked; protect me from the violent, who devise ways to trip my feet. The arrogant have hidden a snare for me; they have spread out the cords of their net and have set traps for me along my path. I say to the LORD, “You are my God.” Hear, LORD, my cry for mercy. Sovereign LORD, my strong deliverer, you shield my head in the day of battle. Do not grant the wicked their desires, LORD; do not let their plans succeed. Those who surround me proudly rear their heads; may the mischief of their lips engulf them. May burning coals fall on them; may they be thrown into the fire, into miry pits, never to rise. May slanderers not be established in the land; may disaster hunt down the violent. I know that the LORD secures justice for the poor and upholds the cause of the needy. Surely the righteous will praise your name, and the upright will live in your presence.

    I call to you, LORD, come quickly to me; hear me when I call to you. May my prayer be set before you like incense; may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening sacrifice. Set a guard over my mouth, LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips. Do not let my heart be drawn to what is evil so that I take part in wicked deeds along with those who are evildoers; do not let me eat their delicacies. Let a righteous man strike me. That is a kindness; let him rebuke me. That is oil on my head. My head will not refuse it, for my prayer will still be against the deeds of evildoers. Their rulers will be thrown down from the cliffs, and the wicked will learn that my words were well spoken. They will say, “As one plows and breaks up the earth, so our bones have been scattered at the mouth of the grave.” But my eyes are fixed on you, Sovereign LORD; in you I take refuge. Do not give me over to death. Keep me safe from the traps set by evildoers, from the snares they have laid for me. Let the wicked fall into their own nets, while I pass by in safety.

    I cry aloud to the LORD; I lift up my voice to the LORD for mercy. I pour out before him my complaint; before him I tell my trouble. When my spirit grows faint within me, it is you who watch over my way. In the path where I walk people have hidden a snare for me. Look and see, there is no one at my right hand; no one is concerned for me. I have no refuge; no one cares for my life. I cry to you, LORD; I say, “You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living.” Listen to my cry, for I am in desperate need; rescue me from those who pursue me, for they are too strong for me. Set me free from my prison, that I may praise your name. Then the righteous will gather about me because of your goodness to me.

    LORD, hear my prayer, listen to my cry for mercy; in your faithfulness and righteousness come to my relief. Do not bring your servant into judgment, for no one living is righteous before you. The enemy pursues me, he crushes me to the ground; he makes me dwell in the darkness like those long dead. So my spirit grows faint within me; my heart within me is dismayed. I remember the days of long ago; I meditate on all your works and consider what your hands have done. I spread out my hands to you; I thirst for you like a parched land. Answer me quickly, LORD; my spirit fails. Do not hide your face from me or I will be like those who go down to the pit. Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life. Rescue me from my enemies, LORD, for I hide myself in you. Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground. For your name’s sake, LORD, preserve my life; in your righteousness, bring me out of trouble. In your unfailing love, silence my enemies; destroy all my foes, for I am your servant.

    Praise be to the LORD my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle. He is my loving God and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield, in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples under me. LORD, what are human beings that you care for them, mere mortals that you think of them? They are like a breath; their days are like a fleeting shadow. Part your heavens, LORD, and come down; touch the mountains, so that they smoke. Send forth lightning and scatter the enemy; shoot your arrows and rout them. Reach down your hand from on high; deliver me and rescue me from the mighty waters, from the hands of foreigners whose mouths are full of lies, whose right hands are deceitful. I will sing a new song to you, my God; on the ten-stringed lyre I will make music to you, to the One who gives victory to kings, who delivers his servant David. From the deadly sword deliver me; rescue me from the hands of foreigners whose mouths are full of lies, whose right hands are deceitful. Then our sons in their youth will be like well-nurtured plants, and our daughters will be like pillars carved to adorn a palace. Our barns will be filled with every kind of provision. Our sheep will increase by thousands, by tens of thousands in our fields; our oxen will draw heavy loads. There will be no breaching of walls, no going into captivity, no cry of distress in our streets. Blessed is the people of whom this is true; blessed is the people whose God is the LORD.

    I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your name for ever and ever. Every day I will praise you and extol your name for ever and ever. Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom. One generation commends your works to another; they tell of your mighty acts. They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty, and I will meditate on your wonderful works. They tell of the power of your awesome works, and I will proclaim your great deeds. They celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your righteousness. The LORD is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love. The LORD is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made. All your works praise you, LORD; your faithful people extol you. They tell of the glory of your kingdom and speak of your might, so that all people may know of your mighty acts and the glorious splendor of your kingdom. Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures through all generations. The LORD is trustworthy in all he promises and faithful in all he does. The LORD upholds all who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down. The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food at the proper time. You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing. The LORD is righteous in all his ways and faithful in all he does. The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them. The LORD watches over all who love him, but all the wicked he will destroy. My mouth will speak in praise of the LORD. Let every creature praise his holy name for ever and ever.

    Praise the LORD. Praise the LORD, my soul. I will praise the LORD all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live. Do not put your trust in princes, in human beings, who cannot save. When their spirit departs, they return to the ground; on that very day their plans come to nothing. Blessed are those whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD their God. He is the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them, he remains faithful forever. He upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free, the LORD gives sight to the blind, the LORD lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves the righteous. The LORD watches over the foreigner and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked. The LORD reigns forever, your God, O Zion, for all generations. Praise the LORD.

    Praise the LORD. How good it is to sing praises to our God, how pleasant and fitting to praise him! The LORD builds up Jerusalem; he gathers the exiles of Israel. He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name. Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit. The LORD sustains the humble but casts the wicked to the ground. Sing to the LORD with grateful praise; make music to our God on the harp. He covers the sky with clouds; he supplies the earth with rain and makes grass grow on the hills. He provides food for the cattle and for the young ravens when they call. His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse, nor his delight in the legs of the warrior; the LORD delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love. Extol the LORD, Jerusalem; praise your God, Zion. He strengthens the bars of your gates and blesses your people within you. He grants peace to your borders and satisfies you with the finest of wheat. He sends his command to the earth; his word runs swiftly. He spreads the snow like wool and scatters the frost like ashes. He hurls down his hail like pebbles. Who can withstand his icy blast? He sends his word and melts them; he stirs up his breezes, and the waters flow. He has revealed his word to Jacob, his laws and decrees to Israel. He has done this for no other nation; they do not know his laws. Praise the LORD.

    Praise the LORD. Praise the LORD from the heavens; praise him in the heights above. Praise him, all his angels; praise him, all his heavenly hosts. Praise him, sun and moon; praise him, all you shining stars. Praise him, you highest heavens and you waters above the skies. Let them praise the name of the LORD, for at his command they were created, and he established them for ever and ever, he issued a decree that will never pass away. Praise the LORD from the earth, you great sea creatures and all ocean depths, lightning and hail, snow and clouds, stormy winds that do his bidding, you mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedars, wild animals and all cattle, small creatures and flying birds, kings of the earth and all nations, you princes and all rulers on earth, young men and women, old men and children. Let them praise the name of the LORD, for his name alone is exalted; his splendor is above the earth and the heavens. And he has raised up for his people a horn, the praise of all his faithful servants, of Israel, the people close to his heart. Praise the LORD.

    Praise the LORD. Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise in the assembly of his faithful people. Let Israel rejoice in their Maker; let the people of Zion be glad in their King. Let them praise his name with dancing and make music to him with timbrel and harp. For the LORD takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with victory. Let his faithful people rejoice in this honor and sing for joy on their beds. May the praise of God be in their mouths and a double-edged sword in their hands, to inflict vengeance on the nations and punishment on the peoples, to bind their kings with fetters, their nobles with shackles of iron, to carry out the sentence written against them. This is the glory of all his faithful people. Praise the LORD.

    Praise the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. Praise him for his acts of power; praise him for his surpassing greatness. Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise him with timbrel and dancing, praise him with the strings and pipe, praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD.

    The vision concerning Judah and Jerusalem that Isaiah son of Amoz saw during the reigns of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, kings of Judah. Hear me, you heavens! Listen, earth! For the LORD has spoken: “I reared children and brought them up, but they have rebelled against me. The ox knows its master, the donkey its owner’s manger, but Israel does not know, my people do not understand.” Woe to the sinful nation, a people whose guilt is great, a brood of evildoers, children given to corruption! They have forsaken the LORD; they have spurned the Holy One of Israel and turned their backs on him. Why should you be beaten anymore? Why do you persist in rebellion? Your whole head is injured, your whole heart afflicted. From the sole of your foot to the top of your head there is no soundness— only wounds and welts and open sores, not cleansed or bandaged or soothed with olive oil. Your country is desolate, your cities burned with fire; your fields are being stripped by foreigners right before you, laid waste as when overthrown by strangers. Daughter Zion is left like a shelter in a vineyard, like a hut in a cucumber field, like a city under siege. Unless the LORD Almighty had left us some survivors, we would have become like Sodom, we would have been like Gomorrah. Hear the word of the LORD, you rulers of Sodom; listen to the instruction of our God, you people of Gomorrah!

    "The multitude of your sacrifices— what are they to me?” says the LORD. “I have more than enough of burnt offerings, of rams and the fat of fattened animals; I have no pleasure in the blood of bulls and lambs and goats. When you come to appear before me, who has asked this of you, this trampling of my courts? Stop bringing meaningless offerings! Your incense is detestable to me. New Moons, Sabbaths and convocations— I cannot bear your worthless assemblies. Your New Moon feasts and your appointed festivals I hate with all my being. They have become a burden to me; I am weary of bearing them. When you spread out your hands in prayer, I hide my eyes from you; even when you offer many prayers, I am not listening. Your hands are full of blood! Wash and make yourselves clean. Take your evil deeds out of my sight; stop doing wrong. Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed.Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow. “Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool. If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good things of the land; but if you resist and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword.” For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.

    See how the faithful city has become a prostitute! She once was full of justice; righteousness used to dwell in her— but now murderers! Your silver has become dross, your choice wine is diluted with water. Your rulers are rebels, partners with thieves; they all love bribes and chase after gifts. They do not defend the cause of the fatherless; the widow’s case does not come before them. Therefore the Lord, the LORD Almighty, the Mighty One of Israel, declares: “Ah! I will vent my wrath on my foes and avenge myself on my enemies. I will turn my hand against you;I will thoroughly purge away your dross and remove all your impurities. I will restore your leaders as in days of old, your rulers as at the beginning. Afterward you will be called the City of Righteousness, the Faithful City.” Zion will be delivered with justice, her penitent ones with righteousness. But rebels and sinners will both be broken, and those who forsake the LORD will perish. “You will be ashamed because of the sacred oaks in which you have delighted; you will be disgraced because of the gardens that you have chosen. You will be like an oak with fading leaves, like a garden without water. The mighty man will become tinder and his work a spark; both will burn together, with no one to quench the fire.”

    This is what Isaiah son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem: In the last days the mountain of the LORD’s temple will be established as the highest of the mountains; it will be exalted above the hills, and all nations will stream to it. Many peoples will come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the temple of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths.” The law will go out from Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore. Come, descendants of Jacob, let us walk in the light of the LORD.

    You, LORD, have abandoned your people, the descendants of Jacob. They are full of superstitions from the East; they practice divination like the Philistines and embrace pagan customs. Their land is full of silver and gold; there is no end to their treasures. Their land is full of horses; there is no end to their chariots. Their land is full of idols; they bow down to the work of their hands, to what their fingers have made. So people will be brought low and everyone humbled— do not forgive them. Go into the rocks, hide in the ground from the fearful presence of the LORD and the splendor of his majesty! The eyes of the arrogant will be humbled and human pride brought low; the LORD alone will be exalted in that day. The LORD Almighty has a day in store for all the proud and lofty, for all that is exalted (and they will be humbled), for all the cedars of Lebanon, tall and lofty, and all the oaks of Bashan, for all the towering mountains and all the high hills, for every lofty tower and every fortified wall, for every trading shipand every stately vessel.

    The arrogance of man will be brought low and human pride humbled; the LORD alone will be exalted in that day, and the idols will totally disappear. People will flee to caves in the rocks and to holes in the ground from the fearful presence of the LORD and the splendor of his majesty, when he rises to shake the earth. In that day people will throw away to the moles and bats their idols of silver and idols of gold, which they made to worship. They will flee to caverns in the rocks and to the overhanging crags from the fearful presence of the LORD and the splendor of his majesty, when he rises to shake the earth. Stop trusting in mere humans, who have but a breath in their nostrils. Why hold them in esteem?

    See now, the Lord, the LORD Almighty, is about to take from Jerusalem and Judah both supply and support: all supplies of food and all supplies of water, the hero and the warrior, the judge and the prophet, the diviner and the elder, the captain of fifty and the man of rank, the counselor, skilled craftsman and clever enchanter. “I will make mere youths their officials; children will rule over them.” People will oppress each other— man against man, neighbor against neighbor. The young will rise up against the old, the nobody against the honored. A man will seize one of his brothers in his father’s house, and say, “You have a cloak, you be our leader; take charge of this heap of ruins!” But in that day he will cry out, “I have no remedy. I have no food or clothing in my house; do not make me the leader of the people.” Jerusalem staggers, Judah is falling; their words and deeds are against the LORD, defying his glorious presence. The look on their faces testifies against them; they parade their sin like Sodom; they do not hide it. Woe to them! They have brought disaster upon themselves. Tell the righteous it will be well with them, for they will enjoy the fruit of their deeds. Woe to the wicked! Disaster is upon them! They will be paid back for what their hands have done.

    Youths oppress my people, women rule over them. My people, your guides lead you astray; they turn you from the path. The LORD takes his place in court; he rises to judge the people. The LORD enters into judgment against the elders and leaders of his people: “It is you who have ruined my vineyard; the plunder from the poor is in your houses. What do you mean by crushing my people and grinding the faces of the poor?” declares the Lord, the LORD Almighty. The LORD says, “The women of Zion are haughty, walking along with outstretched necks, flirting with their eyes, strutting along with swaying hips, with ornaments jingling on their ankles. Therefore the Lord will bring sores on the heads of the women of Zion; the LORD will make their scalps bald.” In that day the Lord will snatch away their finery: the bangles and headbands and crescent necklaces, the earrings and bracelets and veils, the headdresses and anklets and sashes, the perfume bottles and charms, the signet rings and nose rings, the fine robes and the capes and cloaks, the purses and mirrors, and the linen garments and tiaras and shawls. Instead of fragrance there will be a stench; instead of a sash, a rope; instead of well-dressed hair, baldness; instead of fine clothing, sackcloth; instead of beauty, branding. Your men will fall by the sword, your warriors in battle. The gates of Zion will lament and mourn; destitute, she will sit on the ground.

    In that day seven women will take hold of one man and say, “We will eat our own food and provide our own clothes; only let us be called by your name. Take away our disgrace!” In that day the Branch of the LORD will be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the land will be the pride and glory of the survivors in Israel. Those who are left in Zion, who remain in Jerusalem, will be called holy, all who are recorded among the living in Jerusalem. The Lord will wash away the filth of the women of Zion; he will cleanse the bloodstains from Jerusalem by a spirit of judgment and a spirit of fire. Then the LORD will create over all of Mount Zion and over those who assemble there a cloud of smoke by day and a glow of flaming fire by night; over everything the glory will be a canopy. It will be a shelter and shade from the heat of the day, and a refuge and hiding place from the storm and rain.

    I will sing for the one I love a song about his vineyard: My loved one had a vineyard on a fertile hillside. He dug it up and cleared it of stones and planted it with the choicest vines. He built a watchtower in it and cut out a winepress as well. Then he looked for a crop of good grapes, but it yielded only bad fruit. “Now you dwellers in Jerusalem and people of Judah, judge between me and my vineyard. What more could have been done for my vineyard than I have done for it? When I looked for good grapes, why did it yield only bad? Now I will tell you what I am going to do to my vineyard: I will take away its hedge, and it will be destroyed; I will break down its wall, and it will be trampled. I will make it a wasteland, neither pruned nor cultivated, and briers and thorns will grow there. I will command the clouds not to rain on it.” The vineyard of the LORD Almighty is the nation of Israel, and the people of Judah are the vines he delighted in. And he looked for justice, but saw bloodshed; for righteousness, but heard cries of distress.

    Woe to you who add house to house and join field to field till no space is left and you live alone in the land. The LORD Almighty has declared in my hearing: “Surely the great houses will become desolate, the fine mansions left without occupants. A ten-acre vineyard will produce only a bath of wine; a homer of seed will yield only an ephah of grain.” Woe to those who rise early in the morning to run after their drinks, who stay up late at night till they are inflamed with wine. They have harps and lyres at their banquets, pipes and timbrels and wine, but they have no regard for the deeds of the LORD, no respect for the work of his hands. Therefore my people will go into exile for lack of understanding; those of high rank will die of hunger and the common people will be parched with thirst. Therefore Death expands its jaws, opening wide its mouth; into it will descend their nobles and masses with all their brawlers and revelers. So people will be brought low and everyone humbled, the eyes of the arrogant humbled. But the LORD Almighty will be exalted by his justice, and the holy God will be proved holy by his righteous acts. Then sheep will graze as in their own pasture; lambs will feed among the ruins of the rich. Woe to those who draw sin along with cords of deceit, and wickedness as with cart ropes, to those who say, “Let God hurry; let him hasten his work so we may see it. The plan of the Holy One of Israel— let it approach, let it come into view, so we may know it.”

    Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight. Woe to those who are heroes at drinking wine and champions at mixing drinks, who acquit the guilty for a bribe, but deny justice to the innocent. Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so their roots will decay and their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the LORD Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel. Therefore the LORD’s anger burns against his people; his hand is raised and he strikes them down. The mountains shake, and the dead bodies are like refuse in the streets. Yet for all this, his anger is not turned away, his hand is still upraised. He lifts up a banner for the distant nations, he whistles for those at the ends of the earth. Here they come, swiftly and speedily! Not one of them grows tired or stumbles, not one slumbers or sleeps; not a belt is loosened at the waist, not a sandal strap is broken. Their arrows are sharp, all their bows are strung; their horses’ hooves seem like flint, their chariot wheels like a whirlwind. Their roar is like that of the lion, they roar like young lions; they growl as they seize their prey and carry it off with no one to rescue. In that day they will roar over it like the roaring of the sea. And if one looks at the land, there is only darkness and distress; even the sun will be darkened by clouds.

    In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him were seraphim, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. And they were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.” At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke. “Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the LORD Almighty.” Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar. With it he touched my mouth and said, “See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for.”

    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!” He said, “Go and tell this people: “ ‘Be ever hearing, but never understanding; be ever seeing, but never perceiving.’ Make the heart of this people calloused; make their ears dull and close their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed.” Then I said, “For how long, Lord?” And he answered: “Until the cities lie ruined and without inhabitant, until the houses are left deserted and the fields ruined and ravaged, until the LORD has sent everyone far away and the land is utterly forsaken. And though a tenth remains in the land, it will again be laid waste. But as the terebinth and oak leave stumps when they are cut down, so the holy seed will be the stump in the land.”

    When Ahaz son of Jotham, the son of Uzziah, was king of Judah, King Rezin of Aram and Pekah son of Remaliah king of Israel marched up to fight against Jerusalem, but they could not overpower it. Now the house of David was told, “Aram has allied itself with Ephraim”; so the hearts of Ahaz and his people were shaken, as the trees of the forest are shaken by the wind. Then the LORD said to Isaiah, “Go out, you and your son Shear-Jashub, to meet Ahaz at the end of the aqueduct of the Upper Pool, on the road to the Launderer’s Field. Say to him, ‘Be careful, keep calm and don’t be afraid. Do not lose heart because of these two smoldering stubs of firewood—because of the fierce anger of Rezin and Aram and of the son of Remaliah. Aram, Ephraim and Remaliah’s son have plotted your ruin, saying, “Let us invade Judah; let us tear it apart and divide it among ourselves, and make the son of Tabeel king over it.” Yet this is what the Sovereign LORD says: “‘It will not take place, it will not happen, for the head of Aram is Damascus, and the head of Damascus is only Rezin. Within sixty-five years Ephraim will be too shattered to be a people. The head of Ephraim is Samaria, and the head of Samaria is only Remaliah’s son.

    If you do not stand firm in your faith, you will not stand at all.’” Again the LORD spoke to Ahaz, “Ask the LORD your God for a sign, whether in the deepest depths or in the highest heights.” But Ahaz said, “I will not ask; I will not put the LORD to the test.” Then Isaiah said, “Hear now, you house of David! Is it not enough to try the patience of humans? Will you try the patience of my God also? Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel. He will be eating curds and honey when he knows enough to reject the wrong and choose the right, for before the boy knows enough to reject the wrong and choose the right, the land of the two kings you dread will be laid waste. The LORD will bring on you and on your people and on the house of your father a time unlike any since Ephraim broke away from Judah—he will bring the king of Assyria.”

    In that day the LORD will whistle for flies from the Nile delta in Egypt and for bees from the land of Assyria. They will all come and settle in the steep ravines and in the crevices in the rocks, on all the thornbushes and at all the water holes. In that day the Lord will use a razor hired from beyond the Euphrates River—the king of Assyria—to shave your heads and private parts, and to cut off your beards also. In that day, a person will keep alive a young cow and two goats. And because of the abundance of the milk they give, there will be curds to eat. All who remain in the land will eat curds and honey. In that day, in every place where there were a thousand vines worth a thousand silver shekels, there will be only briers and thorns. Hunters will go there with bow and arrow, for the land will be covered with briers and thorns. As for all the hills once cultivated by the hoe, you will no longer go there for fear of the briers and thorns; they will become places where cattle are turned loose and where sheep run.

    The LORD said to me, “Take a large scroll and write on it with an ordinary pen: Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz.” So I called in Uriah the priest and Zechariah son of Jeberekiah as reliable witnesses for me. Then I made love to the prophetess, and she conceived and gave birth to a son. And the LORD said to me, “Name him Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz. For before the boy knows how to say ‘My father’ or ‘My mother,’ the wealth of Damascus and the plunder of Samaria will be carried off by the king of Assyria.” The LORD spoke to me again: “Because this people has rejected the gently flowing waters of Shiloah and rejoices over Rezin and the son of Remaliah, therefore the Lord is about to bring against them the mighty floodwaters of the Euphrates— the king of Assyria with all his pomp. It will overflow all its channels, run over all its banks and sweep on into Judah, swirling over it, passing through it and reaching up to the neck. Its outspread wings will cover the breadth of your land, Immanuel!” Raise the war cry, you nations, and be shattered! Listen, all you distant lands. Prepare for battle, and be shattered! Prepare for battle, and be shattered! Devise your strategy, but it will be thwarted; propose your plan, but it will not stand, for God is with us.

    This is what the LORD says to me with his strong hand upon me, warning me not to follow the way of this people: “Do not call conspiracy everything this people calls a conspiracy; do not fear what they fear, and do not dread it. The LORD Almighty is the one you are to regard as holy, he is the one you are to fear, he is the one you are to dread. He will be a holy place; for both Israel and Judah he will be a stone that causes people to stumble and a rock that makes them fall. And for the people of Jerusalem he will be a trap and a snare. Many of them will stumble; they will fall and be broken, they will be snared and captured.” Bind up this testimony of warning and seal up God’s instruction among my disciples. I will wait for the LORD, who is hiding his face from the descendants of Jacob. I will put my trust in him. Here am I, and the children the LORD has given me. We are signs and symbols in Israel from the LORD Almighty, who dwells on Mount Zion. When someone tells you to consult mediums and spiritists, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living? Consult God’s instruction and the testimony of warning. If anyone does not speak according to this word, they have no light of dawn. Distressed and hungry, they will roam through the land; when they are famished, they will become enraged and, looking upward, will curse their king and their God. Then they will look toward the earth and see only distress and darkness and fearful gloom, and they will be thrust into utter darkness.

    Nevertheless, there will be no more gloom for those who were in distress. In the past he humbled the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, but in the future he will honor Galilee of the nations, by the Way of the Sea, beyond the Jordan— The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned. You have enlarged the nation and increased their joy; they rejoice before you as people rejoice at the harvest, as warriors rejoice when dividing the plunder. For as in the day of Midian’s defeat, you have shattered the yoke that burdens them, the bar across their shoulders, the rod of their oppressor. Every warrior’s boot used in battle and every garment rolled in blood will be destined for burning, will be fuel for the fire. For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this.

    The Lord has sent a message against Jacob; it will fall on Israel. All the people will know it— Ephraim and the inhabitants of Samaria— who say with pride and arrogance of heart, “The bricks have fallen down, but we will rebuild with dressed stone; the fig trees have been felled, but we will replace them with cedars.” But the LORD has strengthened Rezin’s foes against them and has spurred their enemies on. Arameans from the east and Philistines from the west have devoured Israel with open mouth. Yet for all this, his anger is not turned away, his hand is still upraised. But the people have not returned to him who struck them, nor have they sought the LORD Almighty. So the LORD will cut off from Israel both head and tail, both palm branch and reed in a single day; the elders and dignitaries are the head, the prophets who teach lies are the tail. Those who guide this people mislead them, and those who are guided are led astray. Therefore the Lord will take no pleasure in the young men, nor will he pity the fatherless and widows, for everyone is ungodly and wicked, every mouth speaks folly. Yet for all this, his anger is not turned away, his hand is still upraised.

    Surely wickedness burns like a fire; it consumes briers and thorns, it sets the forest thickets ablaze, so that it rolls upward in a column of smoke. By the wrath of the LORD Almighty the land will be scorched and the people will be fuel for the fire; they will not spare one another. On the right they will devour, but still be hungry; on the left they will eat, but not be satisfied. Each will feed on the flesh of their own offspring: Manasseh will feed on Ephraim, and Ephraim on Manasseh; together they will turn against Judah. Yet for all this, his anger is not turned away, his hand is still upraised.

    Woe to those who make unjust laws, to those who issue oppressive decrees, to deprive the poor of their rights and withhold justice from the oppressed of my people, making widows their prey and robbing the fatherless. What will you do on the day of reckoning, when disaster comes from afar? To whom will you run for help? Where will you leave your riches? Nothing will remain but to cringe among the captives or fall among the slain. Yet for all this, his anger is not turned away, his hand is still upraised.

    “Woe to the Assyrian, the rod of my anger, in whose hand is the club of my wrath! I send him against a godless nation, I dispatch him against a people who anger me, to seize loot and snatch plunder, and to trample them down like mud in the streets. But this is not what he intends, this is not what he has in mind; his purpose is to destroy, to put an end to many nations. ‘Are not my commanders all kings?’ he says. ‘Has not Kalno fared like Carchemish? Is not Hamath like Arpad, and Samaria like Damascus? As my hand seized the kingdoms of the idols, kingdoms whose images excelled those of Jerusalem and Samaria— shall I not deal with Jerusalem and her images as I dealt with Samaria and her idols?’” When the Lord has finished all his work against Mount Zion and Jerusalem, he will say, “I will punish the king of Assyria for the willful pride of his heart and the haughty look in his eyes. For he says: “‘By the strength of my hand I have done this, and by my wisdom, because I have understanding.

    I removed the boundaries of nations, I plundered their treasures; like a mighty one I subdued their kings. As one reaches into a nest, so my hand reached for the wealth of the nations; as people gather abandoned eggs, so I gathered all the countries; not one flapped a wing, or opened its mouth to chirp.’” Does the ax raise itself above the person who swings it, or the saw boast against the one who uses it? As if a rod were to wield the person who lifts it up, or a club brandish the one who is not wood! Therefore, the Lord, the LORD Almighty, will send a wasting disease upon his sturdy warriors; under his pomp a fire will be kindled like a blazing flame. The Light of Israel will become a fire, their Holy One a flame; in a single day it will burn and consume his thorns and his briers. The splendor of his forests and fertile fields it will completely destroy, as when a sick person wastes away. 19 And the remaining trees of his forests will be so few that a child could write them down.

    In that day the remnant of Israel, the survivors of Jacob, will no longer rely on him who struck them down but will truly rely on the LORD, the Holy One of Israel. A remnant will return, a remnant of Jacob will return to the Mighty God. Though your people be like the sand by the sea, Israel, only a remnant will return. Destruction has been decreed, overwhelming and righteous. The Lord, the LORD Almighty, will carry out the destruction decreed upon the whole land. Therefore this is what the Lord, the LORD Almighty, says: “My people who live in Zion, do not be afraid of the Assyrians, who beat you with a rod and lift up a club against you, as Egypt did. Very soon my anger against you will end and my wrath will be directed to their destruction.” The LORD Almighty will lash them with a whip, as when he struck down Midian at the rock of Oreb; and he will raise his staff over the waters, as he did in Egypt. In that day their burden will be lifted from your shoulders, their yoke from your neck; the yoke will be broken because you have grown so fat. They enter Aiath; they pass through Migron; they store supplies at Mikmash. They go over the pass, and say, “We will camp overnight at Geba.” Ramah trembles; Gibeah of Saul flees. Cry out, Daughter Gallim! Listen, Laishah! Poor Anathoth! Madmenah is in flight; the people of Gebim take cover. This day they will halt at Nob; they will shake their fist at the mount of Daughter Zion, at the hill of Jerusalem. See, the Lord, the LORD Almighty, will lop off the boughs with great power. The lofty trees will be felled, the tall ones will be brought low. He will cut down the forest thickets with an ax; Lebanon will fall before the Mighty One.

    A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit. The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him— the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the LORD— and he will delight in the fear of the LORD. He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes, or decide by what he hears with his ears; but with righteousness he will judge the needy, with justice he will give decisions for the poor of the earth. He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth; with the breath of his lips he will slay the wicked. Righteousness will be his belt and faithfulness the sash around his waist. The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them. The cow will feed with the bear, their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox. The infant will play near the cobra’s den, and the young child will put its hand into the viper’s nest. They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain, for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.

    In that day the Root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples; the nations will rally to him, and his resting place will be glorious. In that day the Lord will reach out his hand a second time to reclaim the surviving remnant of his people from Assyria, from Lower Egypt, from Upper Egypt, from Cush, from Elam, from Babylonia, from Hamath and from the islands of the Mediterranean. He will raise a banner for the nations and gather the exiles of Israel; he will assemble the scattered people of Judah from the four quarters of the earth. Ephraim’s jealousy will vanish, and Judah’s enemies will be destroyed; Ephraim will not be jealous of Judah, nor Judah hostile toward Ephraim. They will swoop down on the slopes of Philistia to the west; together they will plunder the people to the east. They will subdue Edom and Moab, and the Ammonites will be subject to them. The LORD will dry up the gulf of the Egyptian sea; with a scorching wind he will sweep his hand over the Euphrates River. He will break it up into seven streams so that anyone can cross over in sandals. There will be a highway for the remnant of his people that is left from Assyria, as there was for Israel when they came up from Egypt.

    In that day you will say: “I will praise you, LORD. Although you were angry with me, your anger has turned away and you have comforted me. Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The LORD, the LORD himself, is my strength and my defense ; he has become my salvation.” With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. In that day you will say: “Give praise to the LORD, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted. Sing to the LORD, for he has done glorious things; let this be known to all the world. Shout aloud and sing for joy, people of Zion, for great is the Holy One of Israel among you.”

    A prophecy against Babylon that Isaiah son of Amoz saw: Raise a banner on a bare hilltop, shout to them; beckon to them to enter the gates of the nobles. I have commanded those I prepared for battle; I have summoned my warriors to carry out my wrath— those who rejoice in my triumph. Listen, a noise on the mountains, like that of a great multitude! Listen, an uproar among the kingdoms, like nations massing together! The LORD Almighty is mustering an army for war. They come from faraway lands, from the ends of the heavens— the LORD and the weapons of his wrath— to destroy the whole country. Wail, for the day of the LORD is near; it will come like destruction from the Almighty. Because of this, all hands will go limp, every heart will melt with fear. Terror will seize them, pain and anguish will grip them; they will writhe like a woman in labor. They will look aghast at each other, their faces aflame. See, the day of the LORD is coming —a cruel day, with wrath and fierce anger— to make the land desolate and destroy the sinners within it. The stars of heaven and their constellations will not show their light. The rising sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light.

    I will punish the world for its evil, the wicked for their sins. I will put an end to the arrogance of the haughty and will humble the pride of the ruthless. I will make people scarcer than pure gold, more rare than the gold of Ophir. Therefore I will make the heavens tremble; and the earth will shake from its place at the wrath of the LORD Almighty, in the day of his burning anger. Like a hunted gazelle, like sheep without a shepherd, they will all return to their own people, they will flee to their native land. Whoever is captured will be thrust through; all who are caught will fall by the sword. Their infants will be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses will be looted and their wives violated. See, I will stir up against them the Medes, who do not care for silver and have no delight in gold. Their bows will strike down the young men; they will have no mercy on infants, nor will they look with compassion on children. Babylon, the jewel of kingdoms, the pride and glory of the Babylonians, will be overthrown by God like Sodom and Gomorrah. She will never be inhabited or lived in through all generations; there no nomads will pitch their tents, there no shepherds will rest their flocks. But desert creatures will lie there, jackals will fill her houses; there the owls will dwell, and there the wild goats will leap about. Hyenas will inhabit her strongholds, jackals her luxurious palaces. Her time is at hand, and her days will not be prolonged.

    The LORD will have compassion on Jacob; once again he will choose Israel and will settle them in their own land. Foreigners will join them and unite with the descendants of Jacob. Nations will take them and bring them to their own place. And Israel will take possession of the nations and make them male and female servants in the LORD’s land. They will make captives of their captors and rule over their oppressors. On the day the LORD gives you relief from your suffering and turmoil and from the harsh labor forced on you, you will take up this taunt against the king of Babylon: How the oppressor has come to an end! How his fury has ended! The LORD has broken the rod of the wicked, the scepter of the rulers, which in anger struck down peoples with unceasing blows, and in fury subdued nations with relentless aggression. All the lands are at rest and at peace; they break into singing. Even the junipers and the cedars of Lebanon gloat over you and say, “Now that you have been laid low, no one comes to cut us down.” The realm of the dead below is all astir to meet you at your coming; it rouses the spirits of the departed to greet you— all those who were leaders in the world; it makes them rise from their thrones— all those who were kings over the nations. They will all respond, they will say to you, “You also have become weak, as we are; you have become like us.”

    All your pomp has been brought down to the grave, along with the noise of your harps; maggots are spread out beneath you and worms cover you. How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations! You said in your heart, “I will ascend to the heavens; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of Mount Zaphon. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.”

    But you are brought down to the realm of the dead, to the depths of the pit. Those who see you stare at you, they ponder your fate: “Is this the man who shook the earth and made kingdoms tremble, the man who made the world a wilderness, who overthrew its cities and would not let his captives go home?” All the kings of the nations lie in state, each in his own tomb. But you are cast out of your tomb like a rejected branch; you are covered with the slain, with those pierced by the sword, those who descend to the stones of the pit. Like a corpse trampled underfoot, you will not join them in burial, for you have destroyed your land and killed your people. Let the offspring of the wicked never be mentioned again. Prepare a place to slaughter his children for the sins of their ancestors; they are not to rise to inherit the land and cover the earth with their cities. “I will rise up against them,” declares the LORD Almighty. “I will wipe out Babylon’s name and survivors, her offspring and descendants,” declares the LORD. “I will turn her into a place for owls and into swampland; I will sweep her with the broom of destruction,” declares the LORD Almighty. The LORD Almighty has sworn, “Surely, as I have planned, so it will be, and as I have purposed, so it will happen. I will crush the Assyrian in my land; on my mountains I will trample him down. His yoke will be taken from my people, and his burden removed from their shoulders.” This is the plan determined for the whole world; this is the hand stretched out over all nations. For the LORD Almighty has purposed, and who can thwart him? His hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back?

    This prophecy came in the year King Ahaz died: Do not rejoice, all you Philistines, that the rod that struck you is broken; from the root of that snake will spring up a viper, its fruit will be a darting, venomous serpent. The poorest of the poor will find pasture, and the needy will lie down in safety. But your root I will destroy by famine; it will slay your survivors. Wail, you gate! Howl, you city! Melt away, all you Philistines! A cloud of smoke comes from the north, and there is not a straggler in its ranks. What answer shall be given to the envoys of that nation? “The LORD has established Zion, and in her his afflicted people will find refuge.”

    A prophecy against Moab: Ar in Moab is ruined, destroyed in a night! Kir in Moab is ruined, destroyed in a night! Dibon goes up to its temple, to its high places to weep; Moab wails over Nebo and Medeba. Every head is shaved and every beard cut off. In the streets they wear sackcloth; on the roofs and in the public squares they all wail, prostrate with weeping. Heshbon and Elealeh cry out, their voices are heard all the way to Jahaz. Therefore the armed men of Moab cry out, and their hearts are faint. My heart cries out over Moab; her fugitives flee as far as Zoar, as far as Eglath Shelishiyah. They go up the hill to Luhith, weeping as they go; on the road to Horonaim they lament their destruction. The waters of Nimrim are dried up and the grass is withered; the vegetation is gone and nothing green is left. So the wealth they have acquired and stored up they carry away over the Ravine of the Poplars. Their outcry echoes along the border of Moab; their wailing reaches as far as Eglaim, their lamentation as far as Beer Elim. The waters of Dimon are full of blood, but I will bring still more upon Dimon — a lion upon the fugitives of Moab and upon those who remain in the land.

    Send lambs as tribute to the ruler of the land, from Sela, across the desert, to the mount of Daughter Zion. Like fluttering birds pushed from the nest, so are the women of Moab at the fords of the Arnon. “Make up your mind,” Moab says. “Render a decision. Make your shadow like night— at high noon. Hide the fugitives, do not betray the refugees. Let the Moabite fugitives stay with you; be their shelter from the destroyer.” The oppressor will come to an end, and destruction will cease; the aggressor will vanish from the land. In love a throne will be established; in faithfulness a man will sit on it— one from the house of David— one who in judging seeks justice and speeds the cause of righteousness. We have heard of Moab’s pride— how great is her arrogance!— of her conceit, her pride and her insolence; but her boasts are empty. Therefore the Moabites wail, they wail together for Moab. Lament and grieve for the raisin cakes of Kir Hareseth. The fields of Heshbon wither, the vines of Sibmah also.

    The rulers of the nations have trampled down the choicest vines, which once reached Jazer and spread toward the desert. Their shoots spread out and went as far as the sea. So I weep, as Jazer weeps, for the vines of Sibmah. Heshbon and Elealeh, I drench you with tears! The shouts of joy over your ripened fruit and over your harvests have been stilled. Joy and gladness are taken away from the orchards; no one sings or shouts in the vineyards; no one treads out wine at the presses, for I have put an end to the shouting. My heart laments for Moab like a harp, my inmost being for Kir Hareseth. When Moab appears at her high place, she only wears herself out; when she goes to her shrine to pray, it is to no avail. This is the word the LORD has already spoken concerning Moab. But now the LORD says: “Within three years, as a servant bound by contract would count them, Moab’s splendor and all her many people will be despised, and her survivors will be very few and feeble.”

    A prophecy against Damascus: “See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins. The cities of Aroer will be deserted and left to flocks, which will lie down, with no one to make them afraid. The fortified city will disappear from Ephraim, and royal power from Damascus; the remnant of Aram will be like the glory of the Israelites,” declares the LORD Almighty. “In that day the glory of Jacob will fade; the fat of his body will waste away. It will be as when reapers harvest the standing grain, gathering the grain in their arms— as when someone gleans heads of grain in the Valley of Rephaim. Yet some gleanings will remain, as when an olive tree is beaten, leaving two or three olives on the topmost branches, four or five on the fruitful boughs,” declares the LORD, the God of Israel. In that day people will look to their Maker and turn their eyes to the Holy One of Israel. They will not look to the altars, the work of their hands, and they will have no regard for the Asherah poles and the incense altars their fingers have made. In that day their strong cities, which they left because of the Israelites, will be like places abandoned to thickets and undergrowth. And all will be desolation.

    You have forgotten God your Savior; you have not remembered the Rock, your fortress. Therefore, though you set out the finest plants and plant imported vines, though on the day you set them out, you make them grow, and on the morning when you plant them, you bring them to bud, yet the harvest will be as nothing in the day of disease and incurable pain. Woe to the many nations that rage— they rage like the raging sea! Woe to the peoples who roar— they roar like the roaring of great waters! Although the peoples roar like the roar of surging waters, when he rebukes them they flee far away, driven before the wind like chaff on the hills, like tumbleweed before a gale. In the evening, sudden terror! Before the morning, they are gone! This is the portion of those who loot us, the lot of those who plunder us.

    Woe to the land of whirring wings along the rivers of Cush, which sends envoys by sea in papyrus boats over the water. Go, swift messengers, to a people tall and smooth-skinned, to a people feared far and wide, an aggressive nation of strange speech, whose land is divided by rivers. All you people of the world, you who live on the earth, when a banner is raised on the mountains, you will see it, and when a trumpet sounds, you will hear it. This is what the LORD says to me: “I will remain quiet and will look on from my dwelling place, like shimmering heat in the sunshine, like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.” For, before the harvest, when the blossom is gone and the flower becomes a ripening grape, he will cut off the shoots with pruning knives, and cut down and take away the spreading branches. They will all be left to the mountain birds of prey and to the wild animals; the birds will feed on them all summer, the wild animals all winter. At that time gifts will be brought to the LORD Almighty from a people tall and smooth-skinned, from a people feared far and wide, an aggressive nation of strange speech, whose land is divided by rivers— the gifts will be brought to Mount Zion, the place of the Name of the LORD Almighty.

    A prophecy against Egypt: See, the LORD rides on a swift cloud and is coming to Egypt. The idols of Egypt tremble before him, and the hearts of the Egyptians melt with fear. “I will stir up Egyptian against Egyptian— brother will fight against brother, neighbor against neighbor, city against city, kingdom against kingdom. The Egyptians will lose heart, and I will bring their plans to nothing; they will consult the idols and the spirits of the dead, the mediums and the spiritists. I will hand the Egyptians over to the power of a cruel master, and a fierce king will rule over them,” declares the Lord, the LORD Almighty. The waters of the river will dry up, and the riverbed will be parched and dry. The canals will stink; the streams of Egypt will dwindle and dry up. The reeds and rushes will wither, also the plants along the Nile, at the mouth of the river. Every sown field along the Nile will become parched, will blow away and be no more. The fishermen will groan and lament, all who cast hooks into the Nile; those who throw nets on the water will pine away. Those who work with combed flax will despair, the weavers of fine linen will lose hope. The workers in cloth will be dejected, and all the wage earners will be sick at heart. The officials of Zoan are nothing but fools; the wise counselors of Pharaoh give senseless advice. How can you say to Pharaoh, “I am one of the wise men, a disciple of the ancient kings”? Where are your wise men now? Let them show you and make known what the LORD Almighty has planned against Egypt. The officials of Zoan have become fools, the leaders of Memphis are deceived; the cornerstones of her peoples have led Egypt astray. The LORD has poured into them a spirit of dizziness; they make Egypt stagger in all that she does, as a drunkard staggers around in his vomit. There is nothing Egypt can do— head or tail, palm branch or reed.

    In that day the Egyptians will become weaklings. They will shudder with fear at the uplifted hand that the LORD Almighty raises against them. And the land of Judah will bring terror to the Egyptians; everyone to whom Judah is mentioned will be terrified, because of what the LORD Almighty is planning against them. In that day five cities in Egypt will speak the language of Canaan and swear allegiance to the LORD Almighty. One of them will be called the City of the Sun. In that day there will be an altar to the LORD in the heart of Egypt, and a monument to the LORD at its border. It will be a sign and witness to the LORD Almighty in the land of Egypt. When they cry out to the LORD because of their oppressors, he will send them a savior and defender, and he will rescue them. So the LORD will make himself known to the Egyptians, and in that day they will acknowledge the LORD. They will worship with sacrifices and grain offerings; they will make vows to the LORD and keep them. The LORD will strike Egypt with a plague; he will strike them and heal them. They will turn to the LORD, and he will respond to their pleas and heal them. In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria. The Assyrians will go to Egypt and the Egyptians to Assyria. The Egyptians and Assyrians will worship together. In that day Israel will be the third, along with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing on the earth. The LORD Almighty will bless them, saying, “Blessed be Egypt my people, Assyria my handiwork, and Israel my inheritance.”

    In the year that the supreme commander, sent by Sargon king of Assyria, came to Ashdod and attacked and captured it— at that time the LORD spoke through Isaiah son of Amoz. He said to him, “Take off the sackcloth from your body and the sandals from your feet.” And he did so, going around stripped and barefoot. Then the LORD said, “Just as my servant Isaiah has gone stripped and barefoot for three years, as a sign and portent against Egypt and Cush, so the king of Assyria will lead away stripped and barefoot the Egyptian captives and Cushite exiles, young and old, with buttocks bared—to Egypt’s shame. Those who trusted in Cush and boasted in Egypt will be dismayed and put to shame. In that day the people who live on this coast will say, ‘See what has happened to those we relied on, those we fled to for help and deliverance from the king of Assyria! How then can we escape?’”

    A prophecy against the Desert by the Sea: Like whirlwinds sweeping through the southland, an invader comes from the desert, from a land of terror. A dire vision has been shown to me: The traitor betrays, the looter takes loot. Elam, attack! Media, lay siege! I will bring to an end all the groaning she caused. At this my body is racked with pain, pangs seize me, like those of a woman in labor; I am staggered by what I hear, I am bewildered by what I see. My heart falters, fear makes me tremble; the twilight I longed for has become a horror to me. They set the tables, they spread the rugs, they eat, they drink! Get up, you officers, oil the shields! This is what the Lord says to me: “Go, post a lookout and have him report what he sees. When he sees chariots with teams of horses, riders on donkeys or riders on camels, let him be alert, fully alert.” And the lookout shouted, “Day after day, my lord, I stand on the watchtower; every night I stay at my post. Look, here comes a man in a chariot with a team of horses. And he gives back the answer: ‘Babylon has fallen, has fallen! All the images of its gods lie shattered on the ground!’” My people who are crushed on the threshing floor, I tell you what I have heard from the LORD Almighty, from the God of Israel.

    A prophecy against Dumah : Someone calls to me from Seir, “Watchman, what is left of the night? Watchman, what is left of the night?” The watchman replies, “Morning is coming, but also the night. If you would ask, then ask; and come back yet again.”

    A prophecy against Arabia: You caravans of Dedanites, who camp in the thickets of Arabia, bring water for the thirsty; you who live in Tema, bring food for the fugitives. They flee from the sword, from the drawn sword, from the bent bow and from the heat of battle. This is what the Lord says to me: “Within one year, as a servant bound by contract would count it, all the splendor of Kedar will come to an end. The survivors of the archers, the warriors of Kedar, will be few.” The LORD, the God of Israel, has spoken.

    A prophecy against the Valley of Vision: What troubles you now, that you have all gone up on the roofs, you town so full of commotion, you city of tumult and revelry? Your slain were not killed by the sword, nor did they die in battle. All your leaders have fled together; they have been captured without using the bow. All you who were caught were taken prisoner together, having fled while the enemy was still far away. Therefore I said, “Turn away from me; let me weep bitterly. Do not try to console me over the destruction of my people.” The Lord, the LORD Almighty, has a day of tumult and trampling and terror in the Valley of Vision, a day of battering down walls and of crying out to the mountains. Elam takes up the quiver, with her charioteers and horses; Kir uncovers the shield. Your choicest valleys are full of chariots, and horsemen are posted at the city gates. The Lord stripped away the defenses of Judah, and you looked in that day to the weapons in the Palace of the Forest. You saw that the walls of the City of David were broken through in many places; you stored up water in the Lower Pool. You counted the buildings in Jerusalem and tore down houses to strengthen the wall. You built a reservoir between the two walls for the water of the Old Pool, but you did not look to the One who made it, or have regard for the One who planned it long ago. The Lord, the LORD Almighty, called you on that day to weep and to wail, to tear out your hair and put on sackcloth. But see, there is joy and revelry, slaughtering of cattle and killing of sheep, eating of meat and drinking of wine! “Let us eat and drink,” you say, “for tomorrow we die!”

    The LORD Almighty has revealed this in my hearing: “Till your dying day this sin will not be atoned for,” says the Lord, the LORD Almighty. This is what the Lord, the LORD Almighty, says: “Go, say to this steward, to Shebna the palace administrator: What are you doing here and who gave you permission to cut out a grave for yourself here, hewing your grave on the height and chiseling your resting place in the rock? “Beware, the LORD is about to take firm hold of you and hurl you away, you mighty man. He will roll you up tightly like a ball and throw you into a large country. There you will die and there the chariots you were so proud of will become a disgrace to your master’s house. I will depose you from your office, and you will be ousted from your position. “In that day I will summon my servant, Eliakim son of Hilkiah. I will clothe him with your robe and fasten your sash around him and hand your authority over to him. He will be a father to those who live in Jerusalem and to the people of Judah. I will place on his shoulder the key to the house of David; what he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open. I will drive him like a peg into a firm place; he will become a seat of honor for the house of his father. All the glory of his family will hang on him: its offspring and offshoots—all its lesser vessels, from the bowls to all the jars. “In that day,” declares the LORD Almighty, “the peg driven into the firm place will give way; it will be sheared off and will fall, and the load hanging on it will be cut down.” The LORD has spoken.

    A prophecy against Tyre: Wail, you ships of Tarshish! For Tyre is destroyed and left without house or harbor. From the land of Cyprus word has come to them. Be silent, you people of the island and you merchants of Sidon, whom the seafarers have enriched. On the great waters came the grain of the Shihor; the harvest of the Nile was the revenue of Tyre, and she became the marketplace of the nations. Be ashamed, Sidon, and you fortress of the sea, for the sea has spoken: “I have neither been in labor nor given birth; I have neither reared sons nor brought up daughters.” When word comes to Egypt, they will be in anguish at the report from Tyre. Cross over to Tarshish; wail, you people of the island. Is this your city of revelry, the old, old city, whose feet have taken her to settle in far-off lands? Who planned this against Tyre, the bestower of crowns, whose merchants are princes, whose traders are renowned in the earth? The LORD Almighty planned it, to bring down her pride in all her splendor and to humble all who are renowned on the earth. Till your land as they do along the Nile, Daughter Tarshish, for you no longer have a harbor.

    The LORD has stretched out his hand over the sea and made its kingdoms tremble. He has given an order concerning Phoenicia that her fortresses be destroyed. He said, “No more of your reveling, Virgin Daughter Sidon, now crushed! “Up, cross over to Cyprus; even there you will find no rest.” Look at the land of the Babylonians, this people that is now of no account! The Assyrians have made it a place for desert creatures; they raised up their siege towers, they stripped its fortresses bare and turned it into a ruin. Wail, you ships of Tarshish; your fortress is destroyed! At that time Tyre will be forgotten for seventy years, the span of a king’s life. But at the end of these seventy years, it will happen to Tyre as in the song of the prostitute: “Take up a harp, walk through the city, you forgotten prostitute; play the harp well, sing many a song, so that you will be remembered.” At the end of seventy years, the LORD will deal with Tyre. She will return to her lucrative prostitution and will ply her trade with all the kingdoms on the face of the earth. Yet her profit and her earnings will be set apart for the LORD; they will not be stored up or hoarded. Her profits will go to those who live before the LORD, for abundant food and fine clothes.

    See, the LORD is going to lay waste the earth and devastate it; he will ruin its face and scatter its inhabitants— it will be the same for priest as for people, for the master as for his servant, for the mistress as for her servant, for seller as for buyer, for borrower as for lender, for debtor as for creditor. The earth will be completely laid waste and totally plundered. The LORD has spoken this word. The earth dries up and withers, the world languishes and withers, the heavens languish with the earth. The earth is defiled by its people; they have disobeyed the laws, violated the statutes and broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore a curse consumes the earth; its people must bear their guilt. Therefore earth’s inhabitants are burned up, and very few are left. The new wine dries up and the vine withers; all the merrymakers groan. The joyful timbrels are stilled, the noise of the revelers has stopped, the joyful harp is silent. No longer do they drink wine with a song; the beer is bitter to its drinkers. The ruined city lies desolate; the entrance to every house is barred. In the streets they cry out for wine; all joy turns to gloom, all joyful sounds are banished from the earth. The city is left in ruins, its gate is battered to pieces. So will it be on the earth and among the nations, as when an olive tree is beaten, or as when gleanings are left after the grape harvest. They raise their voices, they shout for joy; from the west they acclaim the LORD’s majesty.

    Therefore in the east give glory to the LORD; exalt the name of the LORD, the God of Israel, in the islands of the sea. From the ends of the earth we hear singing: “Glory to the Righteous One.” But I said, “I waste away, I waste away! Woe to me! The treacherous betray! With treachery the treacherous betray!” Terror and pit and snare await you, people of the earth. Whoever flees at the sound of terror will fall into a pit; whoever climbs out of the pit will be caught in a snare. The floodgates of the heavens are opened, the foundations of the earth shake. The earth is broken up, the earth is split asunder, the earth is violently shaken. The earth reels like a drunkard, it sways like a hut in the wind; so heavy upon it is the guilt of its rebellion that it falls—never to rise again. In that day the LORD will punish the powers in the heavens above and the kings on the earth below. They will be herded together like prisoners bound in a dungeon; they will be shut up in prison and be punished after many days. The moon will be dismayed, the sun ashamed; for the LORD Almighty will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem, and before its elders—with great glory.

    LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done wonderful things, things planned long ago. You have made the city a heap of rubble, the fortified town a ruin, the foreigners’ stronghold a city no more; it will never be rebuilt. Therefore strong peoples will honor you; cities of ruthless nations will revere you. You have been a refuge for the poor, a refuge for the needy in their distress, a shelter from the storm and a shade from the heat. For the breath of the ruthless is like a storm driving against a wall and like the heat of the desert. You silence the uproar of foreigners; as heat is reduced by the shadow of a cloud, so the song of the ruthless is stilled. On this mountain the LORD Almighty will prepare a feast of rich food for all peoples, a banquet of aged wine— the best of meats and the finest of wines. On this mountain he will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations; he will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign LORD will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove his people’s disgrace from all the earth. The LORD has spoken. In that day they will say, “Surely this is our God; we trusted in him, and he saved us. This is the LORD, we trusted in him; let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.” The hand of the LORD will rest on this mountain; but Moab will be trampled in their land as straw is trampled down in the manure. They will stretch out their hands in it, as swimmers stretch out their hands to swim. God will bring down their pride despite the cleverness of their hands. He will bring down your high fortified walls and lay them low; he will bring them down to the ground, to the very dust.

    In that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah: We have a strong city; God makes salvation its walls and ramparts. Open the gates that the righteous nation may enter, the nation that keeps faith. You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you. Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD himself, is the Rock eternal. He humbles those who dwell on high, he lays the lofty city low; he levels it to the ground and casts it down to the dust. Feet trample it down— the feet of the oppressed, the footsteps of the poor. The path of the righteous is level; you, the Upright One, make the way of the righteous smooth. Yes, LORD, walking in the way of your laws, we wait for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts. My soul yearns for you in the night; in the morning my spirit longs for you. When your judgments come upon the earth, the people of the world learn righteousness. But when grace is shown to the wicked, they do not learn righteousness; even in a land of uprightness they go on doing evil and do not regard the majesty of the LORD.

    LORD, your hand is lifted high, but they do not see it. Let them see your zeal for your people and be put to shame; let the fire reserved for your enemies consume them. LORD, you establish peace for us; all that we have accomplished you have done for us. LORD our God, other lords besides you have ruled over us, but your name alone do we honor. They are now dead, they live no more; their spirits do not rise. You punished them and brought them to ruin; you wiped out all memory of them. You have enlarged the nation, LORD; you have enlarged the nation. You have gained glory for yourself; you have extended all the borders of the land. LORD, they came to you in their distress; when you disciplined them, they could barely whisper a prayer. As a pregnant woman about to give birth writhes and cries out in her pain, so were we in your presence, LORD. We were with child, we writhed in labor, but we gave birth to wind. We have not brought salvation to the earth, and the people of the world have not come to life. But your dead will live, LORD; their bodies will rise— let those who dwell in the dust wake up and shout for joy— your dew is like the dew of the morning; the earth will give birth to her dead. Go, my people, enter your rooms and shut the doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until his wrath has passed by. See, the LORD is coming out of his dwelling to punish the people of the earth for their sins. The earth will disclose the blood shed on it; the earth will conceal its slain no longer.

    In that day, the LORD will punish with his sword— his fierce, great and powerful sword— Leviathan the gliding serpent, Leviathan the coiling serpent; he will slay the monster of the sea. In that day— “Sing about a fruitful vineyard: I, the LORD, watch over it; I water it continually. I guard it day and night so that no one may harm it. I am not angry. If only there were briers and thorns confronting me! I would march against them in battle; I would set them all on fire. Or else let them come to me for refuge; let them make peace with me, yes, let them make peace with me.” In days to come Jacob will take root, Israel will bud and blossom and fill all the world with fruit. Has the LORD struck her as he struck down those who struck her? Has she been killed as those were killed who killed her?

    By warfare and exile you contend with her— with his fierce blast he drives her out, as on a day the east wind blows. By this, then, will Jacob’s guilt be atoned for, and this will be the full fruit of the removal of his sin: When he makes all the altar stones to be like limestone crushed to pieces, no Asherah poles or incense altars will be left standing. The fortified city stands desolate, an abandoned settlement, forsaken like the wilderness; there the calves graze, there they lie down; they strip its branches bare. When its twigs are dry, they are broken off and women come and make fires with them. For this is a people without understanding; so their Maker has no compassion on them, and their Creator shows them no favor. In that day the LORD will thresh from the flowing Euphrates to the Wadi of Egypt, and you, Israel, will be gathered up one by one. And in that day a great trumpet will sound. Those who were perishing in Assyria and those who were exiled in Egypt will come and worship the LORD on the holy mountain in Jerusalem.

    Woe to that wreath, the pride of Ephraim’s drunkards, to the fading flower, his glorious beauty, set on the head of a fertile valley— to that city, the pride of those laid low by wine! See, the Lord has one who is powerful and strong. Like a hailstorm and a destructive wind, like a driving rain and a flooding downpour, he will throw it forcefully to the ground. That wreath, the pride of Ephraim’s drunkards, will be trampled underfoot. That fading flower, his glorious beauty, set on the head of a fertile valley, will be like figs ripe before harvest— as soon as people see them and take them in hand, they swallow them. In that day the LORD Almighty will be a glorious crown, a beautiful wreath for the remnant of his people. He will be a spirit of justice to the one who sits in judgment, a source of strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate. And these also stagger from wine and reel from beer: Priests and prophets stagger from beer and are befuddled with wine; they reel from beer, they stagger when seeing visions, they stumble when rendering decisions. All the tables are covered with vomit and there is not a spot without filth.

    “Who is it he is trying to teach? To whom is he explaining his message? To children weaned from their milk, to those just taken from the breast? For it is: Do this, do that, a rule for this, a rule for that; a little here, a little there.” Very well then, with foreign lips and strange tongues God will speak to this people, to whom he said, “This is the resting place, let the weary rest”; and, “This is the place of repose”— but they would not listen. So then, the word of the LORD to them will become: Do this, do that, a rule for this, a rule for that; a little here, a little there— so that as they go they will fall backward; they will be injured and snared and captured. Therefore hear the word of the LORD, you scoffers who rule this people in Jerusalem. You boast, “We have entered into a covenant with death, with the realm of the dead we have made an agreement. When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by, it cannot touch us, for we have made a lie our refuge and falsehood our hiding place.” So this is what the Sovereign LORD says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who relies on it will never be stricken with panic. I will make justice the measuring line and righteousness the plumb line; hail will sweep away your refuge, the lie, and water will overflow your hiding place. Your covenant with death will be annulled; your agreement with the realm of the dead will not stand.

    When the overwhelming scourge sweeps by, you will be beaten down by it. As often as it comes it will carry you away; morning after morning, by day and by night, it will sweep through.” The understanding of this message will bring sheer terror. The bed is too short to stretch out on, the blanket too narrow to wrap around you. The LORD will rise up as he did at Mount Perazim, he will rouse himself as in the Valley of Gibeon— to do his work, his strange work, and perform his task, his alien task. Now stop your mocking, or your chains will become heavier; the Lord, the LORD Almighty, has told me of the destruction decreed against the whole land. Listen and hear my voice; pay attention and hear what I say. When a farmer plows for planting, does he plow continually? Does he keep on breaking up and working the soil? When he has leveled the surface, does he not sow caraway and scatter cumin? Does he not plant wheat in its place, barley in its plot, and spelt in its field? His God instructs him and teaches him the right way. Caraway is not threshed with a sledge, nor is the wheel of a cart rolled over cumin; caraway is beaten out with a rod, and cumin with a stick. Grain must be ground to make bread; so one does not go on threshing it forever. The wheels of a threshing cart may be rolled over it, but one does not use horses to grind grain. All this also comes from the LORD Almighty, whose plan is wonderful, whose wisdom is magnificent.

    Woe to you, Ariel, Ariel, the city where David settled! Add year to year and let your cycle of festivals go on. Yet I will besiege Ariel; she will mourn and lament, she will be to me like an altar hearth. I will encamp against you on all sides; I will encircle you with towers and set up my siege works against you. Brought low, you will speak from the ground; your speech will mumble out of the dust. Your voice will come ghostlike from the earth; out of the dust your speech will whisper. But your many enemies will become like fine dust, the ruthless hordes like blown chaff. Suddenly, in an instant, the LORD Almighty will come with thunder and earthquake and great noise, with windstorm and tempest and flames of a devouring fire. Then the hordes of all the nations that fight against Ariel, that attack her and her fortress and besiege her, will be as it is with a dream, with a vision in the night— as when a hungry person dreams of eating, but awakens hungry still; as when a thirsty person dreams of drinking, but awakens faint and thirsty still. So will it be with the hordes of all the nations that fight against Mount Zion. Be stunned and amazed, blind yourselves and be sightless; be drunk, but not from wine, stagger, but not from beer. The LORD has brought over you a deep sleep: He has sealed your eyes (the prophets); he has covered your heads (the seers). For you this whole vision is nothing but words sealed in a scroll. And if you give the scroll to someone who can read, and say, “Read this, please,” they will answer, “I can’t; it is sealed.” Or if you give the scroll to someone who cannot read, and say, “Read this, please,” they will answer, “I don’t know how to read.”

    The Lord says: “These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is based on merely human rules they have been taught. Therefore once more I will astound these people with wonder upon wonder; the wisdom of the wise will perish, the intelligence of the intelligent will vanish.” Woe to those who go to great depths to hide their plans from the LORD, who do their work in darkness and think, “Who sees us? Who will know?” You turn things upside down, as if the potter were thought to be like the clay! Shall what is formed say to the one who formed it, “You did not make me”? Can the pot say to the potter, “You know nothing”? In a very short time, will not Lebanon be turned into a fertile field and the fertile field seem like a forest? In that day the deaf will hear the words of the scroll, and out of gloom and darkness the eyes of the blind will see. Once more the humble will rejoice in the LORD; the needy will rejoice in the Holy One of Israel. The ruthless will vanish, the mockers will disappear, and all who have an eye for evil will be cut down— those who with a word make someone out to be guilty, who ensnare the defender in court and with false testimony deprive the innocent of justice. Therefore this is what the LORD, who redeemed Abraham, says to the descendants of Jacob: “No longer will Jacob be ashamed; no longer will their faces grow pale. When they see among them their children, the work of my hands, they will keep my name holy; they will acknowledge the holiness of the Holy One of Jacob, and will stand in awe of the God of Israel. Those who are wayward in spirit will gain understanding; those who complain will accept instruction.”

    “Woe to the obstinate children,” declares the LORD, “to those who carry out plans that are not mine, forming an alliance, but not by my Spirit, heaping sin upon sin; who go down to Egypt without consulting me; who look for help to Pharaoh’s protection, to Egypt’s shade for refuge. But Pharaoh’s protection will be to your shame, Egypt’s shade will bring you disgrace. Though they have officials in Zoan and their envoys have arrived in Hanes, everyone will be put to shame because of a people useless to them, who bring neither help nor advantage, but only shame and disgrace.” A prophecy concerning the animals of the Negev: Through a land of hardship and distress, of lions and lionesses, of adders and darting snakes, the envoys carry their riches on donkeys’ backs, their treasures on the humps of camels, to that unprofitable nation, to Egypt, whose help is utterly useless. Therefore I call her Rahab the Do-Nothing. Go now, write it on a tablet for them, inscribe it on a scroll, that for the days to come it may be an everlasting witness. For these are rebellious people, deceitful children, children unwilling to listen to the LORD’s instruction. They say to the seers, “See no more visions!” and to the prophets, “Give us no more visions of what is right! Tell us pleasant things, prophesy illusions. Leave this way, get off this path, and stop confronting us with the Holy One of Israel!” Therefore this is what the Holy One of Israel says: “Because you have rejected this message, relied on oppression and depended on deceit, this sin will become for you like a high wall, cracked and bulging, that collapses suddenly, in an instant. It will break in pieces like pottery, shattered so mercilessly that among its pieces not a fragment will be found for taking coals from a hearth or scooping water out of a cistern.”

    This is what the Sovereign LORD, the Holy One of Israel, says: “In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength, but you would have none of it. You said, ‘No, we will flee on horses.’ Therefore you will flee! You said, ‘We will ride off on swift horses.’ Therefore your pursuers will be swift! A thousand will flee at the threat of one; at the threat of five you will all flee away, till you are left like a flagstaff on a mountaintop, like a banner on a hill.” Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him! People of Zion, who live in Jerusalem, you will weep no more. How gracious he will be when you cry for help! As soon as he hears, he will answer you. Although the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, your teachers will be hidden no more; with your own eyes you will see them. Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” Then you will desecrate your idols overlaid with silver and your images covered with gold; you will throw them away like a menstrual cloth and say to them, “Away with you!” He will also send you rain for the seed you sow in the ground, and the food that comes from the land will be rich and plentiful. In that day your cattle will graze in broad meadows. The oxen and donkeys that work the soil will eat fodder and mash, spread out with fork and shovel. In the day of great slaughter, when the towers fall, streams of water will flow on every high mountain and every lofty hill. The moon will shine like the sun, and the sunlight will be seven times brighter, like the light of seven full days, when the LORD binds up the bruises of his people and heals the wounds he inflicted.

    See, the Name of the LORD comes from afar, with burning anger and dense clouds of smoke; his lips are full of wrath, and his tongue is a consuming fire. His breath is like a rushing torrent, rising up to the neck. He shakes the nations in the sieve of destruction; he places in the jaws of the peoples a bit that leads them astray. And you will sing as on the night you celebrate a holy festival; your hearts will rejoice as when people playing pipes go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the Rock of Israel. The LORD will cause people to hear his majestic voice and will make them see his arm coming down with raging anger and consuming fire, with cloudburst, thunderstorm and hail. The voice of the LORD will shatter Assyria; with his rod he will strike them down. Every stroke the LORD lays on them with his punishing club will be to the music of timbrels and harps, as he fights them in battle with the blows of his arm. Topheth has long been prepared; it has been made ready for the king. Its fire pit has been made deep and wide, with an abundance of fire and wood; the breath of the LORD, like a stream of burning sulfur, sets it ablaze.

    Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help, who rely on horses, who trust in the multitude of their chariots and in the great strength of their horsemen, but do not look to the Holy One of Israel, or seek help from the LORD. Yet he too is wise and can bring disaster; he does not take back his words. He will rise up against that wicked nation, against those who help evildoers. But the Egyptians are mere mortals and not God; their horses are flesh and not spirit. When the LORD stretches out his hand, those who help will stumble, those who are helped will fall; all will perish together. This is what the LORD says to me: “As a lion growls, a great lion over its prey— and though a whole band of shepherds is called together against it, it is not frightened by their shouts or disturbed by their clamor— so the LORD Almighty will come down to do battle on Mount Zion and on its heights. Like birds hovering overhead, the LORD Almighty will shield Jerusalem; he will shield it and deliver it, he will ‘pass over’ it and will rescue it.” Return, you Israelites, to the One you have so greatly revolted against. For in that day every one of you will reject the idols of silver and gold your sinful hands have made. “Assyria will fall by no human sword; a sword, not of mortals, will devour them. They will flee before the sword and their young men will be put to forced labor. Their stronghold will fall because of terror; at the sight of the battle standard their commanders will panic,” declares the LORD, whose fire is in Zion, whose furnace is in Jerusalem.

    See, a king will reign in righteousness and rulers will rule with justice. Each one will be like a shelter from the wind and a refuge from the storm, like streams of water in the desert and the shadow of a great rock in a thirsty land. Then the eyes of those who see will no longer be closed, and the ears of those who hear will listen. The fearful heart will know and understand, and the stammering tongue will be fluent and clear. No longer will the fool be called noble nor the scoundrel be highly respected. For fools speak folly, their hearts are bent on evil: They practice ungodliness and spread error concerning the LORD; the hungry they leave empty and from the thirsty they withhold water. Scoundrels use wicked methods, they make up evil schemes to destroy the poor with lies, even when the plea of the needy is just. But the noble make noble plans, and by noble deeds they stand.

    You women who are so complacent, rise up and listen to me; you daughters who feel secure, hear what I have to say! In little more than a year you who feel secure will tremble; the grape harvest will fail, and the harvest of fruit will not come. Tremble, you complacent women; shudder, you daughters who feel secure! Strip off your fine clothes and wrap yourselves in rags. Beat your breasts for the pleasant fields, for the fruitful vines and for the land of my people, a land overgrown with thorns and briers— yes, mourn for all houses of merriment and for this city of revelry. The fortress will be abandoned, the noisy city deserted; citadel and watchtower will become a wasteland forever, the delight of donkeys, a pasture for flocks, till the Spirit is poured on us from on high, and the desert becomes a fertile field, and the fertile field seems like a forest. The LORD’s justice will dwell in the desert, his righteousness live in the fertile field. The fruit of that righteousness will be peace; its effect will be quietness and confidence forever. My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undisturbed places of rest. Though hail flattens the forest and the city is leveled completely, how blessed you will be, sowing your seed by every stream, and letting your cattle and donkeys range free.

    Woe to you, destroyer, you who have not been destroyed! Woe to you, betrayer, you who have not been betrayed! When you stop destroying, you will be destroyed; when you stop betraying, you will be betrayed. LORD, be gracious to us; we long for you. Be our strength every morning, our salvation in time of distress. At the uproar of your army, the peoples flee; when you rise up, the nations scatter. Your plunder, O nations, is harvested as by young locusts; like a swarm of locusts people pounce on it. The LORD is exalted, for he dwells on high; he will fill Zion with his justice and righteousness. He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the LORD is the key to this treasure. Look, their brave men cry aloud in the streets; the envoys of peace weep bitterly. The highways are deserted, no travelers are on the roads. The treaty is broken, its witnesses are despised, no one is respected. The land dries up and wastes away, Lebanon is ashamed and withers; Sharon is like the Arabah, and Bashan and Carmel drop their leaves. “Now will I arise,” says the LORD. “Now will I be exalted; now will I be lifted up. You conceive chaff, you give birth to straw; your breath is a fire that consumes you. The peoples will be burned to ashes; like cut thornbushes they will be set ablaze.” You who are far away, hear what I have done; you who are near, acknowledge my power!

    The sinners in Zion are terrified; trembling grips the godless: “Who of us can dwell with the consuming fire? Who of us can dwell with everlasting burning?” Those who walk righteously and speak what is right, who reject gain from extortion and keep their hands from accepting bribes, who stop their ears against plots of murder and shut their eyes against contemplating evil— they are the ones who will dwell on the heights, whose refuge will be the mountain fortress. Their bread will be supplied, and water will not fail them. Your eyes will see the king in his beauty and view a land that stretches afar. In your thoughts you will ponder the former terror: “Where is that chief officer? Where is the one who took the revenue? Where is the officer in charge of the towers?” You will see those arrogant people no more, people whose speech is obscure, whose language is strange and incomprehensible. Look on Zion, the city of our festivals; your eyes will see Jerusalem, a peaceful abode, a tent that will not be moved; its stakes will never be pulled up, nor any of its ropes broken. There the LORD will be our Mighty One. It will be like a place of broad rivers and streams. No galley with oars will ride them, no mighty ship will sail them. For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; it is he who will save us. Your rigging hangs loose: The mast is not held secure, the sail is not spread. Then an abundance of spoils will be divided and even the lame will carry off plunder. No one living in Zion will say, “I am ill”; and the sins of those who dwell there will be forgiven.

    Come near, you nations, and listen; pay attention, you peoples! Let the earth hear, and all that is in it, the world, and all that comes out of it! The LORD is angry with all nations; his wrath is on all their armies. He will totally destroy them, he will give them over to slaughter. Their slain will be thrown out, their dead bodies will stink; the mountains will be soaked with their blood. All the stars in the sky will be dissolved and the heavens rolled up like a scroll; all the starry host will fall like withered leaves from the vine, like shriveled figs from the fig tree. My sword has drunk its fill in the heavens; see, it descends in judgment on Edom, the people I have totally destroyed. The sword of the LORD is bathed in blood, it is covered with fat— the blood of lambs and goats, fat from the kidneys of rams. For the LORD has a sacrifice in Bozrah and a great slaughter in the land of Edom. And the wild oxen will fall with them, the bull calves and the great bulls. Their land will be drenched with blood, and the dust will be soaked with fat. For the LORD has a day of vengeance, a year of retribution, to uphold Zion’s cause.

    Edom’s streams will be turned into pitch, her dust into burning sulfur; her land will become blazing pitch! It will not be quenched night or day; its smoke will rise forever. From generation to generation it will lie desolate; no one will ever pass through it again. The desert owl and screech owl will possess it; the great owl and the raven will nest there. God will stretch out over Edom the measuring line of chaos and the plumb line of desolation. Her nobles will have nothing there to be called a kingdom, all her princes will vanish away. Thorns will overrun her citadels, nettles and brambles her strongholds. She will become a haunt for jackals, a home for owls. Desert creatures will meet with hyenas, and wild goats will bleat to each other; there the night creatures will also lie down and find for themselves places of rest. The owl will nest there and lay eggs, she will hatch them, and care for her young under the shadow of her wings; there also the falcons will gather, each with its mate. Look in the scroll of the LORD and read: None of these will be missing, not one will lack her mate. For it is his mouth that has given the order, and his Spirit will gather them together. He allots their portions; his hand distributes them by measure. They will possess it forever and dwell there from generation to generation.

    The desert and the parched land will be glad; the wilderness will rejoice and blossom. Like the crocus, it will burst into bloom; it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy. The glory of Lebanon will be given to it, the splendor of Carmel and Sharon; they will see the glory of the LORD, the splendor of our God. Strengthen the feeble hands, steady the knees that give way; say to those with fearful hearts, “Be strong, do not fear; your God will come, he will come with vengeance; with divine retribution he will come to save you.” Then will the eyes of the blind be opened and the ears of the deaf unstopped. Then will the lame leap like a deer, and the mute tongue shout for joy. Water will gush forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert. The burning sand will become a pool, the thirsty ground bubbling springs. In the haunts where jackals once lay, grass and reeds and papyrus will grow. And a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness; it will be for those who walk on that Way. The unclean will not journey on it; wicked fools will not go about on it. No lion will be there, nor any ravenous beast; they will not be found there. But only the redeemed will walk there, and those the LORD has rescued will return. They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads. Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away.

    In the fourteenth year of King Hezekiah’s reign, Sennacherib king of Assyria attacked all the fortified cities of Judah and captured them. Then the king of Assyria sent his field commander with a large army from Lachish to King Hezekiah at Jerusalem. When the commander stopped at the aqueduct of the Upper Pool, on the road to the Launderer’s Field, Eliakim son of Hilkiah the palace administrator, Shebna the secretary, and Joah son of Asaph the recorder went out to him. The field commander said to them, “Tell Hezekiah: “ ‘This is what the great king, the king of Assyria, says: On what are you basing this confidence of yours? You say you have counsel and might for war—but you speak only empty words. On whom are you depending, that you rebel against me? Look, I know you are depending on Egypt, that splintered reed of a staff, which pierces the hand of anyone who leans on it! Such is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all who depend on him. But if you say to me, “We are depending on the LORD our God”—isn’t he the one whose high places and altars Hezekiah removed, saying to Judah and Jerusalem, “You must worship before this altar”? “‘Come now, make a bargain with my master, the king of Assyria: I will give you two thousand horses—if you can put riders on them! How then can you repulse one officer of the least of my master’s officials, even though you are depending on Egypt for chariots and horsemen? Furthermore, have I come to attack and destroy this land without the LORD? The LORD himself told me to march against this country and destroy it.’” Then Eliakim, Shebna and Joah said to the field commander, “Please speak to your servants in Aramaic, since we understand it. Don’t speak to us in Hebrew in the hearing of the people on the wall.”

    But the commander replied, “Was it only to your master and you that my master sent me to say these things, and not to the people sitting on the wall—who, like you, will have to eat their own excrement and drink their own urine?” Then the commander stood and called out in Hebrew, “Hear the words of the great king, the king of Assyria! This is what the king says: Do not let Hezekiah deceive you. He cannot deliver you! Do not let Hezekiah persuade you to trust in the LORD when he says, ‘The LORD will surely deliver us; this city will not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria.’ “Do not listen to Hezekiah. This is what the king of Assyria says: Make peace with me and come out to me. Then each of you will eat fruit from your own vine and fig tree and drink water from your own cistern, until I come and take you to a land like your own—a land of grain and new wine, a land of bread and vineyards. “Do not let Hezekiah mislead you when he says, ‘The LORD will deliver us.’ Have the gods of any nations ever delivered their lands from the hand of the king of Assyria? Where are the gods of Hamath and Arpad? Where are the gods of Sepharvaim? Have they rescued Samaria from my hand? Who of all the gods of these countries have been able to save their lands from me? How then can the LORD deliver Jerusalem from my hand?” But the people remained silent and said nothing in reply, because the king had commanded, “Do not answer him.” Then Eliakim son of Hilkiah the palace administrator, Shebna the secretary and Joah son of Asaph the recorder went to Hezekiah, with their clothes torn, and told him what the field commander had said.

    When King Hezekiah heard this, he tore his clothes and put on sackcloth and went into the temple of the LORD. He sent Eliakim the palace administrator, Shebna the secretary, and the leading priests, all wearing sackcloth, to the prophet Isaiah son of Amoz. They told him, “This is what Hezekiah says: This day is a day of distress and rebuke and disgrace, as when children come to the moment of birth and there is no strength to deliver them. It may be that the LORD your God will hear the words of the field commander, whom his master, the king of Assyria, has sent to ridicule the living God, and that he will rebuke him for the words the LORD your God has heard. Therefore pray for the remnant that still survives.” When King Hezekiah’s officials came to Isaiah, Isaiah said to them, “Tell your master, ‘This is what the LORD says: Do not be afraid of what you have heard—those words with which the underlings of the king of Assyria have blasphemed me. Listen! When he hears a certain report, I will make him want to return to his own country, and there I will have him cut down with the sword.’”

    When the field commander heard that the king of Assyria had left Lachish, he withdrew and found the king fighting against Libnah. Now Sennacherib received a report that Tirhakah, the king of Cush, was marching out to fight against him. When he heard it, he sent messengers to Hezekiah with this word: “Say to Hezekiah king of Judah: Do not let the god you depend on deceive you when he says, ‘Jerusalem will not be given into the hands of the king of Assyria.’ Surely you have heard what the kings of Assyria have done to all the countries, destroying them completely. And will you be delivered? Did the gods of the nations that were destroyed by my predecessors deliver them—the gods of Gozan, Harran, Rezeph and the people of Eden who were in Tel Assar? Where is the king of Hamath or the king of Arpad? Where are the kings of Lair, Sepharvaim, Hena and Ivvah?”

    Hezekiah received the letter from the messengers and read it. Then he went up to the temple of the LORD and spread it out before the LORD. And Hezekiah prayed to the LORD: “LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, enthroned between the cherubim, you alone are God over all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth. Give ear, LORD, and hear; open your eyes, LORD, and see; listen to all the words Sennacherib has sent to ridicule the living God. “It is true, LORD, that the Assyrian kings have laid waste all these peoples and their lands. They have thrown their gods into the fire and destroyed them, for they were not gods but only wood and stone, fashioned by human hands. Now, LORD our God, deliver us from his hand, so that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that you, LORD, are the only God. ”

    Then Isaiah son of Amoz sent a message to Hezekiah: “This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: Because you have prayed to me concerning Sennacherib king of Assyria, this is the word the LORD has spoken against him: “Virgin Daughter Zion despises and mocks you. Daughter Jerusalem tosses her head as you flee. Who is it you have ridiculed and blasphemed? Against whom have you raised your voice and lifted your eyes in pride? Against the Holy One of Israel! By your messengers you have ridiculed the Lord. And you have said, ‘With my many chariots I have ascended the heights of the mountains, the utmost heights of Lebanon. I have cut down its tallest cedars, the choicest of its junipers. I have reached its remotest heights, the finest of its forests. I have dug wells in foreign lands and drunk the water there. With the soles of my feet I have dried up all the streams of Egypt.’ “Have you not heard? Long ago I ordained it. In days of old I planned it; now I have brought it to pass, that you have turned fortified cities into piles of stone. Their people, drained of power, are dismayed and put to shame. They are like plants in the field, like tender green shoots, like grass sprouting on the roof, scorched before it grows up. “But I know where you are and when you come and go and how you rage against me.

    Because you rage against me and because your insolence has reached my ears, I will put my hook in your nose and my bit in your mouth, and I will make you return by the way you came. “This will be the sign for you, Hezekiah: “This year you will eat what grows by itself, and the second year what springs from that. But in the third year sow and reap, plant vineyards and eat their fruit. Once more a remnant of the kingdom of Judah will take root below and bear fruit above. For out of Jerusalem will come a remnant, and out of Mount Zion a band of survivors. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this. “Therefore this is what the LORD says concerning the king of Assyria: “He will not enter this city or shoot an arrow here. He will not come before it with shield or build a siege ramp against it. By the way that he came he will return; he will not enter this city,” declares the LORD. “I will defend this city and save it, for my sake and for the sake of David my servant!” Then the angel of the LORD went out and put to death a hundred and eighty-five thousand in the Assyrian camp. When the people got up the next morning—there were all the dead bodies! So Sennacherib king of Assyria broke camp and withdrew. He returned to Nineveh and stayed there. One day, while he was worshiping in the temple of his god Nisrok, his sons Adrammelek and Sharezer killed him with the sword, and they escaped to the land of Ararat. And Esarhaddon his son succeeded him as king.

    In those days Hezekiah became ill and was at the point of death. The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz went to him and said, “This is what the LORD says: Put your house in order, because you are going to die; you will not recover.” Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the LORD, “Remember, LORD, how I have walked before you faithfully and with wholehearted devotion and have done what is good in your eyes.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly. Then the word of the LORD came to Isaiah: “Go and tell Hezekiah, ‘This is what the LORD, the God of your father David, says: I have heard your prayer and seen your tears; I will add fifteen years to your life. And I will deliver you and this city from the hand of the king of Assyria. I will defend this city. “‘This is the LORD’s sign to you that the LORD will do what he has promised: I will make the shadow cast by the sun go back the ten steps it has gone down on the stairway of Ahaz.’” So the sunlight went back the ten steps it had gone down. A writing of Hezekiah king of Judah after his illness and recovery: I said, “In the prime of my life must I go through the gates of death and be robbed of the rest of my years?” I said, “I will not again see the LORD himself in the land of the living; no longer will I look on my fellow man, or be with those who now dwell in this world.

    Like a shepherd’s tent my house has been pulled down and taken from me. Like a weaver I have rolled up my life, and he has cut me off from the loom; day and night you made an end of me. I waited patiently till dawn, but like a lion he broke all my bones; day and night you made an end of me. I cried like a swift or thrush, I moaned like a mourning dove. My eyes grew weak as I looked to the heavens. I am being threatened; Lord, come to my aid!” But what can I say? He has spoken to me, and he himself has done this. I will walk humbly all my years because of this anguish of my soul. Lord, by such things people live; and my spirit finds life in them too. You restored me to health and let me live. Surely it was for my benefit that I suffered such anguish. In your love you kept me from the pit of destruction; you have put all my sins behind your back. For the grave cannot praise you, death cannot sing your praise; those who go down to the pit cannot hope for your faithfulness. The living, the living—they praise you, as I am doing today; parents tell their children about your faithfulness. The LORD will save me, and we will sing with stringed instruments all the days of our lives in the temple of the LORD. Isaiah had said, “Prepare a poultice of figs and apply it to the boil, and he will recover.” Hezekiah had asked, “What will be the sign that I will go up to the temple of the LORD?”

    At that time Marduk-Baladan son of Baladan king of Babylon sent Hezekiah letters and a gift, because he had heard of his illness and recovery. Hezekiah received the envoys gladly and showed them what was in his storehouses—the silver, the gold, the spices, the fine olive oil—his entire armory and everything found among his treasures. There was nothing in his palace or in all his kingdom that Hezekiah did not show them. Then Isaiah the prophet went to King Hezekiah and asked, “What did those men say, and where did they come from?” “From a distant land,” Hezekiah replied. “They came to me from Babylon.” The prophet asked, “What did they see in your palace?” “They saw everything in my palace,” Hezekiah said. “There is nothing among my treasures that I did not show them.” Then Isaiah said to Hezekiah, “Hear the word of the LORD Almighty: The time will surely come when everything in your palace, and all that your predecessors have stored up until this day, will be carried off to Babylon. Nothing will be left, says the LORD. And some of your descendants, your own flesh and blood who will be born to you, will be taken away, and they will become eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon.” “The word of the LORD you have spoken is good,” Hezekiah replied. For he thought, “There will be peace and security in my lifetime.”

    Comfort, comfort my people, says your God. Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and proclaim to her that her hard service has been completed, that her sin has been paid for, that she has received from the LORD’s hand double for all her sins. A voice of one calling: “In the wilderness prepare the way for the LORD; make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain. And the glory of the LORD will be revealed, and all people will see it together. For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.” A voice says, “Cry out.” And I said, “What shall I cry?” “All people are like grass, and all their faithfulness is like the flowers of the field. The grass withers and the flowers fall, because the breath of the LORD blows on them. Surely the people are grass. The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.” You who bring good news to Zion, go up on a high mountain. You who bring good news to Jerusalem, lift up your voice with a shout, lift it up, do not be afraid; say to the towns of Judah, “Here is your God!”

    See, the Sovereign LORD comes with power, and he rules with a mighty arm. See, his reward is with him, and his recompense accompanies him. He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young. Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, or with the breadth of his hand marked off the heavens? Who has held the dust of the earth in a basket, or weighed the mountains on the scales and the hills in a balance? Who can fathom the Spirit of the LORD, or instruct the LORD as his counselor? Whom did the LORD consult to enlighten him, and who taught him the right way? Who was it that taught him knowledge, or showed him the path of understanding? Surely the nations are like a drop in a bucket; they are regarded as dust on the scales; he weighs the islands as though they were fine dust. Lebanon is not sufficient for altar fires, nor its animals enough for burnt offerings. Before him all the nations are as nothing; they are regarded by him as worthless and less than nothing. With whom, then, will you compare God? To what image will you liken him? As for an idol, a metalworker casts it, and a goldsmith overlays it with gold and fashions silver chains for it. A person too poor to present such an offering selects wood that will not rot; they look for a skilled worker to set up an idol that will not topple.

    Do you not know? Have you not heard? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood since the earth was founded? He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, and its people are like grasshoppers. He stretches out the heavens like a canopy, and spreads them out like a tent to live in. He brings princes to naught and reduces the rulers of this world to nothing. No sooner are they planted, no sooner are they sown, no sooner do they take root in the ground, than he blows on them and they wither, and a whirlwind sweeps them away like chaff. “To whom will you compare me? Or who is my equal?” says the Holy One. Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing. Why do you complain, Jacob? Why do you say, Israel, “My way is hidden from the LORD; my cause is disregarded by my God”? Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

    “Be silent before me, you islands! Let the nations renew their strength! Let them come forward and speak; let us meet together at the place of judgment. “Who has stirred up one from the east, calling him in righteousness to his service? He hands nations over to him and subdues kings before him. He turns them to dust with his sword, to windblown chaff with his bow. He pursues them and moves on unscathed, by a path his feet have not traveled before. Who has done this and carried it through, calling forth the generations from the beginning? I, the LORD—with the first of them and with the last—I am he.” The islands have seen it and fear; the ends of the earth tremble. They approach and come forward; they help each other and say to their companions, “Be strong!” The metalworker encourages the goldsmith, and the one who smooths with the hammer spurs on the one who strikes the anvil. One says of the welding, “It is good.” The other nails down the idol so it will not topple. “But you, Israel, my servant, Jacob, whom I have chosen, you descendants of Abraham my friend, I took you from the ends of the earth, from its farthest corners I called you.

    I said, ‘You are my servant’; I have chosen you and have not rejected you. So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. “All who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced; those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish. Though you search for your enemies, you will not find them. Those who wage war against you will be as nothing at all. For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. Do not be afraid, you worm Jacob, little Israel, do not fear, for I myself will help you,” declares the LORD, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel. “See, I will make you into a threshing sledge, new and sharp, with many teeth. You will thresh the mountains and crush them, and reduce the hills to chaff. You will winnow them, the wind will pick them up, and a gale will blow them away. But you will rejoice in the LORD and glory in the Holy One of Israel. “The poor and needy search for water, but there is none; their tongues are parched with thirst. But I the LORD will answer them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them. I will make rivers flow on barren heights, and springs within the valleys. I will turn the desert into pools of water, and the parched ground into springs. I will put in the desert the cedar and the acacia, the myrtle and the olive. I will set junipers in the wasteland, the fir and the cypress together, so that people may see and know, may consider and understand, that the hand of the LORD has done this, that the Holy One of Israel has created it.

    “Present your case,” says the LORD. “Set forth your arguments,” says Jacob’s King. “Tell us, you idols, what is going to happen. Tell us what the former things were, so that we may consider them and know their final outcome. Or declare to us the things to come, tell us what the future holds, so we may know that you are gods. Do something, whether good or bad, so that we will be dismayed and filled with fear. But you are less than nothing and your works are utterly worthless; whoever chooses you is detestable. “I have stirred up one from the north, and he comes— one from the rising sun who calls on my name. He treads on rulers as if they were mortar, as if he were a potter treading the clay. Who told of this from the beginning, so we could know, or beforehand, so we could say, ‘He was right’? No one told of this, no one foretold it, no one heard any words from you. I was the first to tell Zion, ‘Look, here they are!’ I gave to Jerusalem a messenger of good news. I look but there is no one— no one among the gods to give counsel, no one to give answer when I ask them. See, they are all false! Their deeds amount to nothing; their images are but wind and confusion.

    “Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will bring justice to the nations. He will not shout or cry out, or raise his voice in the streets. A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out. In faithfulness he will bring forth justice; he will not falter or be discouraged till he establishes justice on earth. In his teaching the islands will put their hope.” This is what God the LORD says— the Creator of the heavens, who stretches them out, who spreads out the earth with all that springs from it, who gives breath to its people, and life to those who walk on it: “I, the LORD, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles, to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness. “I am the LORD; that is my name! I will not yield my glory to another or my praise to idols. See, the former things have taken place, and new things I declare; before they spring into being I announce them to you.”

    Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise from the ends of the earth, you who go down to the sea, and all that is in it, you islands, and all who live in them. Let the wilderness and its towns raise their voices; let the settlements where Kedar lives rejoice. Let the people of Sela sing for joy; let them shout from the mountaintops. Let them give glory to the LORD and proclaim his praise in the islands. The LORD will march out like a champion, like a warrior he will stir up his zeal; with a shout he will raise the battle cry and will triumph over his enemies. “For a long time I have kept silent, I have been quiet and held myself back. But now, like a woman in childbirth, I cry out, I gasp and pant. I will lay waste the mountains and hills and dry up all their vegetation; I will turn rivers into islands and dry up the pools. I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them. But those who trust in idols, who say to images, ‘You are our gods,’ will be turned back in utter shame.

    “Hear, you deaf; look, you blind, and see! Who is blind but my servant, and deaf like the messenger I send? Who is blind like the one in covenant with me, blind like the servant of the LORD? You have seen many things, but you pay no attention; your ears are open, but you do not listen.” It pleased the LORD for the sake of his righteousness to make his law great and glorious. But this is a people plundered and looted, all of them trapped in pits or hidden away in prisons. They have become plunder, with no one to rescue them; they have been made loot, with no one to say, “Send them back.” Which of you will listen to this or pay close attention in time to come? Who handed Jacob over to become loot, and Israel to the plunderers? Was it not the LORD, against whom we have sinned? For they would not follow his ways; they did not obey his law. So he poured out on them his burning anger, the violence of war. It enveloped them in flames, yet they did not understand; it consumed them, but they did not take it to heart.

    But now, this is what the LORD says— he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I give Egypt for your ransom, Cush and Seba in your stead. Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you, I will give people in exchange for you, nations in exchange for your life. Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west. I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ and to the south, ‘Do not hold them back.’

    Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth— everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.” Lead out those who have eyes but are blind, who have ears but are deaf. All the nations gather together and the peoples assemble. Which of their gods foretold this and proclaimed to us the former things? Let them bring in their witnesses to prove they were right, so that others may hear and say, “It is true.” “You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD, “and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me. I, even I, am the LORD, and apart from me there is no savior. I have revealed and saved and proclaimed— I, and not some foreign god among you. You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD, “that I am God. Yes, and from ancient days I am he. No one can deliver out of my hand. When I act, who can reverse it?”

    This is what the LORD says— your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “For your sake I will send to Babylon and bring down as fugitives all the Babylonians, in the ships in which they took pride. I am the LORD, your Holy One, Israel’s Creator, your King.” This is what the LORD says— he who made a way through the sea, a path through the mighty waters, who drew out the chariots and horses, the army and reinforcements together, and they lay there, never to rise again, extinguished, snuffed out like a wick: “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. The wild animals honor me, the jackals and the owls, because I provide water in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland, to give drink to my people, my chosen, the people I formed for myself that they may proclaim my praise.

    “Yet you have not called on me, Jacob, you have not wearied yourselves for me, Israel. You have not brought me sheep for burnt offerings, nor honored me with your sacrifices. I have not burdened you with grain offerings nor wearied you with demands for incense. You have not bought any fragrant calamus for me, or lavished on me the fat of your sacrifices. But you have burdened me with your sins and wearied me with your offenses. “I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more. Review the past for me, let us argue the matter together; state the case for your innocence. Your first father sinned; those I sent to teach you rebelled against me. So I disgraced the dignitaries of your temple; I consigned Jacob to destruction and Israel to scorn.

    “But now listen, Jacob, my servant, Israel, whom I have chosen. This is what the LORD says— he who made you, who formed you in the womb, and who will help you: Do not be afraid, Jacob, my servant, Jeshurun, whom I have chosen. For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring, and my blessing on your descendants. They will spring up like grass in a meadow, like poplar trees by flowing streams. Some will say, ‘I belong to the LORD’; others will call themselves by the name of Jacob; still others will write on their hand, ‘The LORD’s,’ and will take the name Israel.

    “This is what the LORD says— Israel’s King and Redeemer, the LORD Almighty: I am the first and I am the last; apart from me there is no God. Who then is like me? Let him proclaim it. Let him declare and lay out before me what has happened since I established my ancient people, and what is yet to come— yes, let them foretell what will come. Do not tremble, do not be afraid. Did I not proclaim this and foretell it long ago? You are my witnesses. Is there any God besides me? No, there is no other Rock; I know not one.” All who make idols are nothing, and the things they treasure are worthless. Those who would speak up for them are blind; they are ignorant, to their own shame. Who shapes a god and casts an idol, which can profit nothing? People who do that will be put to shame; such craftsmen are only human beings. Let them all come together and take their stand; they will be brought down to terror and shame. The blacksmith takes a tool and works with it in the coals; he shapes an idol with hammers, he forges it with the might of his arm. He gets hungry and loses his strength; he drinks no water and grows faint. The carpenter measures with a line and makes an outline with a marker; he roughs it out with chisels and marks it with compasses. He shapes it in human form, human form in all its glory, that it may dwell in a shrine. He cut down cedars, or perhaps took a cypress or oak. He let it grow among the trees of the forest, or planted a pine, and the rain made it grow. It is used as fuel for burning; some of it he takes and warms himself, he kindles a fire and bakes bread.

    But he also fashions a god and worships it; he makes an idol and bows down to it. Half of the wood he burns in the fire; over it he prepares his meal, he roasts his meat and eats his fill. He also warms himself and says, “Ah! I am warm; I see the fire.” From the rest he makes a god, his idol; he bows down to it and worships. He prays to it and says, “Save me! You are my god!” They know nothing, they understand nothing; their eyes are plastered over so they cannot see, and their minds closed so they cannot understand. No one stops to think, no one has the knowledge or understanding to say, “Half of it I used for fuel; I even baked bread over its coals, I roasted meat and I ate. Shall I make a detestable thing from what is left? Shall I bow down to a block of wood?” Such a person feeds on ashes; a deluded heart misleads him; he cannot save himself, or say, “Is not this thing in my right hand a lie?” “Remember these things, Jacob, for you, Israel, are my servant. I have made you, you are my servant; Israel, I will not forget you. I have swept away your offenses like a cloud, your sins like the morning mist. Return to me, for I have redeemed you.” Sing for joy, you heavens, for the LORD has done this; shout aloud, you earth beneath. Burst into song, you mountains, you forests and all your trees, for the LORD has redeemed Jacob, he displays his glory in Israel.

    “This is what the LORD says— your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb: I am the LORD, the Maker of all things, who stretches out the heavens, who spreads out the earth by myself, who foils the signs of false prophets and makes fools of diviners, who overthrows the learning of the wise and turns it into nonsense, who carries out the words of his servants and fulfills the predictions of his messengers, who says of Jerusalem, ‘It shall be inhabited,’ of the towns of Judah, ‘They shall be rebuilt,’ and of their ruins, ‘I will restore them,’ who says to the watery deep, ‘Be dry, and I will dry up your streams,’ who says of Cyrus, ‘He is my shepherd and will accomplish all that I please; he will say of Jerusalem, “Let it be rebuilt,” and of the temple, “Let its foundations be laid.”’

    “This is what the LORD says to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I take hold of to subdue nations before him and to strip kings of their armor, to open doors before him so that gates will not be shut: I will go before you and will level the mountains; I will break down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron. I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, who summons you by name. For the sake of Jacob my servant, of Israel my chosen, I summon you by name and bestow on you a title of honor, though you do not acknowledge me. I am the LORD, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God. I will strengthen you, though you have not acknowledged me, so that from the rising of the sun to the place of its setting people may know there is none besides me. I am the LORD, and there is no other. I form the light and create darkness, I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, the LORD, do all these things. “You heavens above, rain down my righteousness; let the clouds shower it down. Let the earth open wide, let salvation spring up, let righteousness flourish with it; I, the LORD, have created it.

    “Woe to those who quarrel with their Maker, those who are nothing but potsherds among the potsherds on the ground. Does the clay say to the potter, ‘What are you making?’ Does your work say, ‘The potter has no hands’? Woe to the one who says to a father, ‘What have you begotten?’ or to a mother, ‘What have you brought to birth?’ “This is what the LORD says— the Holy One of Israel, and its Maker: Concerning things to come, do you question me about my children, or give me orders about the work of my hands? It is I who made the earth and created mankind on it. My own hands stretched out the heavens; I marshaled their starry hosts. I will raise up Cyrus in my righteousness: I will make all his ways straight. He will rebuild my city and set my exiles free, but not for a price or reward, says the LORD Almighty.” This is what the LORD says: “The products of Egypt and the merchandise of Cush, and those tall Sabeans— they will come over to you and will be yours; they will trudge behind you, coming over to you in chains. They will bow down before you and plead with you, saying, ‘Surely God is with you, and there is no other; there is no other god.’” Truly you are a God who has been hiding himself, the God and Savior of Israel. All the makers of idols will be put to shame and disgraced; they will go off into disgrace together.

    But Israel will be saved by the LORD with an everlasting salvation; you will never be put to shame or disgraced, to ages everlasting. For this is what the LORD says— he who created the heavens, he is God; he who fashioned and made the earth, he founded it; he did not create it to be empty, but formed it to be inhabited— he says: “I am the LORD, and there is no other. I have not spoken in secret, from somewhere in a land of darkness; I have not said to Jacob’s descendants, ‘Seek me in vain.’ I, the LORD, speak the truth; I declare what is right. “Gather together and come; assemble, you fugitives from the nations. Ignorant are those who carry about idols of wood, who pray to gods that cannot save. Declare what is to be, present it— let them take counsel together. Who foretold this long ago, who declared it from the distant past? Was it not I, the LORD? And there is no God apart from me, a righteous God and a Savior; there is none but me. “Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other. By myself I have sworn, my mouth has uttered in all integrity a word that will not be revoked: Before me every knee will bow; by me every tongue will swear. They will say of me, ‘In the LORD alone are deliverance and strength.’” All who have raged against him will come to him and be put to shame. But all the descendants of Israel will find deliverance in the LORD and will make their boast in him.

    Bel bows down, Nebo stoops low; their idols are borne by beasts of burden. The images that are carried about are burdensome, a burden for the weary. They stoop and bow down together; unable to rescue the burden, they themselves go off into captivity. “Listen to me, you descendants of Jacob, all the remnant of the people of Israel, you whom I have upheld since your birth, and have carried since you were born. Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you. “With whom will you compare me or count me equal? To whom will you liken me that we may be compared? Some pour out gold from their bags and weigh out silver on the scales; they hire a goldsmith to make it into a god, and they bow down and worship it. They lift it to their shoulders and carry it; they set it up in its place, and there it stands. From that spot it cannot move. Even though someone cries out to it, it cannot answer; it cannot save them from their troubles. “Remember this, keep it in mind, take it to heart, you rebels.

    Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me. I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, ‘My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.’ From the east I summon a bird of prey; from a far-off land, a man to fulfill my purpose. What I have said, that I will bring about; what I have planned, that I will do. Listen to me, you stubborn-hearted, you who are now far from my righteousness. I am bringing my righteousness near, it is not far away; and my salvation will not be delayed. I will grant salvation to Zion, my splendor to Israel.

    “Go down, sit in the dust, Virgin Daughter Babylon; sit on the ground without a throne, queen city of the Babylonians. No more will you be called tender or delicate. Take millstones and grind flour; take off your veil. Lift up your skirts, bare your legs, and wade through the streams. Your nakedness will be exposed and your shame uncovered. I will take vengeance; I will spare no one.” Our Redeemer—the LORD Almighty is his name— is the Holy One of Israel. “Sit in silence, go into darkness, queen city of the Babylonians; no more will you be called queen of kingdoms. I was angry with my people and desecrated my inheritance; I gave them into your hand, and you showed them no mercy. Even on the aged you laid a very heavy yoke. You said, ‘I am forever— the eternal queen!’ But you did not consider these things or reflect on what might happen. “Now then, listen, you lover of pleasure, lounging in your security and saying to yourself, ‘I am, and there is none besides me. I will never be a widow or suffer the loss of children.’ Both of these will overtake you in a moment, on a single day: loss of children and widowhood. They will come upon you in full measure, in spite of your many sorceries and all your potent spells.

    You have trusted in your wickedness and have said, ‘No one sees me.’ Your wisdom and knowledge mislead you when you say to yourself, ‘I am, and there is none besides me.’ Disaster will come upon you, and you will not know how to conjure it away. A calamity will fall upon you that you cannot ward off with a ransom; a catastrophe you cannot foresee will suddenly come upon you. “Keep on, then, with your magic spells and with your many sorceries, which you have labored at since childhood. Perhaps you will succeed, perhaps you will cause terror. All the counsel you have received has only worn you out! Let your astrologers come forward, those stargazers who make predictions month by month, let them save you from what is coming upon you. Surely they are like stubble; the fire will burn them up. They cannot even save themselves from the power of the flame. These are not coals for warmth; this is not a fire to sit by. That is all they are to you— these you have dealt with and labored with since childhood. All of them go on in their error; there is not one that can save you.

    “Listen to this, you descendants of Jacob, you who are called by the name of Israel and come from the line of Judah, you who take oaths in the name of the LORD and invoke the God of Israel— but not in truth or righteousness— you who call yourselves citizens of the holy city and claim to rely on the God of Israel— the LORD Almighty is his name: I foretold the former things long ago, my mouth announced them and I made them known; then suddenly I acted, and they came to pass. For I knew how stubborn you were; your neck muscles were iron, your forehead was bronze. Therefore I told you these things long ago; before they happened I announced them to you so that you could not say, ‘My images brought them about; my wooden image and metal god ordained them.’ You have heard these things; look at them all. Will you not admit them? “From now on I will tell you of new things, of hidden things unknown to you. They are created now, and not long ago; you have not heard of them before today. So you cannot say, ‘Yes, I knew of them.’ You have neither heard nor understood; from of old your ears have not been open. Well do I know how treacherous you are; you were called a rebel from birth. For my own name’s sake I delay my wrath; for the sake of my praise I hold it back from you, so as not to destroy you completely. See, I have refined you, though not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction. For my own sake, for my own sake, I do this. How can I let myself be defamed? I will not yield my glory to another.

    “Listen to me, Jacob, Israel, whom I have called: I am he; I am the first and I am the last. My own hand laid the foundations of the earth, and my right hand spread out the heavens; when I summon them, they all stand up together. “Come together, all of you, and listen: Which of the idols has foretold these things? The LORD’s chosen ally will carry out his purpose against Babylon; his arm will be against the Babylonians. I, even I, have spoken; yes, I have called him. I will bring him, and he will succeed in his mission. “Come near me and listen to this: “From the first announcement I have not spoken in secret; at the time it happens, I am there.” And now the Sovereign LORD has sent me, endowed with his Spirit. This is what the LORD says— your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go. If only you had paid attention to my commands, your peace would have been like a river, your well-being like the waves of the sea. Your descendants would have been like the sand, your children like its numberless grains; their name would never be blotted out nor destroyed from before me.” Leave Babylon, flee from the Babylonians! Announce this with shouts of joy and proclaim it. Send it out to the ends of the earth; say, “The LORD has redeemed his servant Jacob.” They did not thirst when he led them through the deserts; he made water flow for them from the rock; he split the rock and water gushed out. “There is no peace,” says the LORD, “for the wicked.”

    This is what the LORD says: “In the time of my favor I will answer you, and in the day of salvation I will help you; I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people, to restore the land and to reassign its desolate inheritances, to say to the captives, ‘Come out,’ and to those in darkness, ‘Be free!’ “They will feed beside the roads and find pasture on every barren hill. They will neither hunger nor thirst, nor will the desert heat or the sun beat down on them. He who has compassion on them will guide them and lead them beside springs of water. I will turn all my mountains into roads, and my highways will be raised up. See, they will come from afar— some from the north, some from the west, some from the region of Aswan.” Shout for joy, you heavens; rejoice, you earth; burst into song, you mountains! For the LORD comforts his people and will have compassion on his afflicted ones. But Zion said, “The LORD has forsaken me, the Lord has forgotten me.” “Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you! See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me. Your children hasten back, and those who laid you waste depart from you. Lift up your eyes and look around; all your children gather and come to you. As surely as I live,” declares the LORD, “you will wear them all as ornaments; you will put them on, like a bride. “Though you were ruined and made desolate and your land laid waste, now you will be too small for your people, and those who devoured you will be far away.

    The children born during your bereavement will yet say in your hearing, ‘This place is too small for us; give us more space to live in.’ Then you will say in your heart, ‘Who bore me these? I was bereaved and barren; I was exiled and rejected. Who brought these up? I was left all alone, but these—where have they come from?’” This is what the Sovereign LORD says: “See, I will beckon to the nations, I will lift up my banner to the peoples; they will bring your sons in their arms and carry your daughters on their hips. Kings will be your foster fathers, and their queens your nursing mothers. They will bow down before you with their faces to the ground; they will lick the dust at your feet. Then you will know that I am the LORD; those who hope in me will not be disappointed.” Can plunder be taken from warriors, or captives be rescued from the fierce? But this is what the LORD says: “Yes, captives will be taken from warriors, and plunder retrieved from the fierce; I will contend with those who contend with you, and your children I will save. I will make your oppressors eat their own flesh; they will be drunk on their own blood, as with wine. Then all mankind will know that I, the LORD, am your Savior, your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.”

    This is what the LORD says: “Where is your mother’s certificate of divorce with which I sent her away? Or to which of my creditors did I sell you? Because of your sins you were sold; because of your transgressions your mother was sent away. When I came, why was there no one? When I called, why was there no one to answer? Was my arm too short to deliver you? Do I lack the strength to rescue you? By a mere rebuke I dry up the sea, I turn rivers into a desert; their fish rot for lack of water and die of thirst. I clothe the heavens with darkness and make sackcloth its covering.” The Sovereign LORD has given me a well-instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary. He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being instructed. The Sovereign LORD has opened my ears; I have not been rebellious, I have not turned away.

    I offered my back to those who beat me, my cheeks to those who pulled out my beard; I did not hide my face from mocking and spitting. Because the Sovereign LORD helps me, I will not be disgraced. Therefore have I set my face like flint, and I know I will not be put to shame. He who vindicates me is near. Who then will bring charges against me? Let us face each other! Who is my accuser? Let him confront me! It is the Sovereign LORD who helps me. Who will condemn me? They will all wear out like a garment; the moths will eat them up. Who among you fears the LORD and obeys the word of his servant? Let the one who walks in the dark, who has no light, trust in the name of the LORD and rely on their God. But now, all you who light fires and provide yourselves with flaming torches, go, walk in the light of your fires and of the torches you have set ablaze. This is what you shall receive from my hand: You will lie down in torment.

    “Listen to me, you who pursue righteousness and who seek the LORD: Look to the rock from which you were cut and to the quarry from which you were hewn; look to Abraham, your father, and to Sarah, who gave you birth. When I called him he was only one man, and I blessed him and made him many. The LORD will surely comfort Zion and will look with compassion on all her ruins; he will make her deserts like Eden, her wastelands like the garden of the LORD. Joy and gladness will be found in her, thanksgiving and the sound of singing. “Listen to me, my people; hear me, my nation: Instruction will go out from me; my justice will become a light to the nations. My righteousness draws near speedily, my salvation is on the way, and my arm will bring justice to the nations. The islands will look to me and wait in hope for my arm. Lift up your eyes to the heavens, look at the earth beneath; the heavens will vanish like smoke, the earth will wear out like a garment and its inhabitants die like flies. But my salvation will last forever, my righteousness will never fail. “Hear me, you who know what is right, you people who have taken my instruction to heart: Do not fear the reproach of mere mortals or be terrified by their insults. For the moth will eat them up like a garment; the worm will devour them like wool.

    But my righteousness will last forever, my salvation through all generations.” Awake, awake, arm of the LORD, clothe yourself with strength! Awake, as in days gone by, as in generations of old. Was it not you who cut Rahab to pieces, who pierced that monster through? Was it not you who dried up the sea, the waters of the great deep, who made a road in the depths of the sea so that the redeemed might cross over? Those the LORD has rescued will return. They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads. Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away. “I, even I, am he who comforts you. Who are you that you fear mere mortals, human beings who are but grass, that you forget the LORD your Maker, who stretches out the heavens and who lays the foundations of the earth, that you live in constant terror every day because of the wrath of the oppressor, who is bent on destruction? For where is the wrath of the oppressor? The cowering prisoners will soon be set free; they will not die in their dungeon, nor will they lack bread. For I am the LORD your God, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar— the LORD Almighty is his name. I have put my words in your mouth and covered you with the shadow of my hand— I who set the heavens in place, who laid the foundations of the earth, and who say to Zion, ‘You are my people.’”

    Awake, awake! Rise up, Jerusalem, you who have drunk from the hand of the LORD the cup of his wrath, you who have drained to its dregs the goblet that makes people stagger. Among all the children she bore there was none to guide her; among all the children she reared there was none to take her by the hand. These double calamities have come upon you— who can comfort you?— ruin and destruction, famine and sword— who can console you? Your children have fainted; they lie at every street corner, like antelope caught in a net. They are filled with the wrath of the LORD, with the rebuke of your God. Therefore hear this, you afflicted one, made drunk, but not with wine. This is what your Sovereign LORD says, your God, who defends his people: “See, I have taken out of your hand the cup that made you stagger; from that cup, the goblet of my wrath, you will never drink again. I will put it into the hands of your tormentors, who said to you, ‘Fall prostrate that we may walk on you.’ And you made your back like the ground, like a street to be walked on.”

    Awake, awake, Zion, clothe yourself with strength! Put on your garments of splendor, Jerusalem, the holy city. The uncircumcised and defiled will not enter you again. Shake off your dust; rise up, sit enthroned, Jerusalem. Free yourself from the chains on your neck, Daughter Zion, now a captive. For this is what the LORD says: “You were sold for nothing, and without money you will be redeemed.” For this is what the Sovereign LORD says: “At first my people went down to Egypt to live; lately, Assyria has oppressed them. “And now what do I have here?” declares the LORD. “For my people have been taken away for nothing, and those who rule them mock, ” declares the LORD. “And all day long my name is constantly blasphemed. Therefore my people will know my name; therefore in that day they will know that it is I who foretold it. Yes, it is I.” How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!” Listen! Your watchmen lift up their voices; together they shout for joy. When the LORD returns to Zion, they will see it with their own eyes. Burst into songs of joy together, you ruins of Jerusalem, for the LORD has comforted his people, he has redeemed Jerusalem. The LORD will lay bare his holy arm in the sight of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth will see the salvation of our God. Depart, depart, go out from there! Touch no unclean thing! Come out from it and be pure, you who carry the articles of the LORD’s house. But you will not leave in haste or go in flight; for the LORD will go before you, the God of Israel will be your rear guard.

    See, my servant will act wisely; he will be raised and lifted up and highly exalted. Just as there were many who were appalled at him — his appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any human being and his form marred beyond human likeness— so he will sprinkle many nations,and kings will shut their mouths because of him. For what they were not told, they will see, and what they have not heard, they will understand.

    Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed? He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth.

    By oppression and judgment he was taken away. Yet who of his generation protested? For he was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgression of my people he was punished. He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death, though he had done no violence, nor was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it was the LORD’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer, and though the LORD makes his life an offering for sin, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the LORD will prosper in his hand. After he has suffered, he will see the light of life and be satisfied ; by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities. Therefore I will give him a portion among the great,and he will divide the spoils with the strong,because he poured out his life unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors. For he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

    “Sing, barren woman, you who never bore a child; burst into song, shout for joy, you who were never in labor; because more are the children of the desolate woman than of her who has a husband,” says the LORD. “Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes. For you will spread out to the right and to the left; your descendants will dispossess nations and settle in their desolate cities. “Do not be afraid; you will not be put to shame. Do not fear disgrace; you will not be humiliated. You will forget the shame of your youth and remember no more the reproach of your widowhood. For your Maker is your husband— the LORD Almighty is his name— the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; he is called the God of all the earth. The LORD will call you back as if you were a wife deserted and distressed in spirit— a wife who married young, only to be rejected,” says your God. “For a brief moment I abandoned you, but with deep compassion I will bring you back. In a surge of anger I hid my face from you for a moment, but with everlasting kindness I will have compassion on you,” says the LORD your Redeemer.

    “To me this is like the days of Noah, when I swore that the waters of Noah would never again cover the earth. So now I have sworn not to be angry with you, never to rebuke you again. Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the LORD, who has compassion on you. “Afflicted city, lashed by storms and not comforted, I will rebuild you with stones of turquoise, your foundations with lapis lazuli. I will make your battlements of rubies, your gates of sparkling jewels, and all your walls of precious stones. All your children will be taught by the LORD, and great will be their peace. In righteousness you will be established: Tyranny will be far from you; you will have nothing to fear. Terror will be far removed; it will not come near you. If anyone does attack you, it will not be my doing; whoever attacks you will surrender to you. “See, it is I who created the blacksmith who fans the coals into flame and forges a weapon fit for its work. And it is I who have created the destroyer to wreak havoc; no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the LORD.

    “Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost. Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and you will delight in the richest of fare. Give ear and come to me; listen, that you may live. I will make an everlasting covenant with you, my faithful love promised to David. See, I have made him a witness to the peoples, a ruler and commander of the peoples. Surely you will summon nations you know not, and nations you do not know will come running to you, because of the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, for he has endowed you with splendor.” Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near. Let the wicked forsake their ways and the unrighteous their thoughts.

    Let them turn to the LORD, and he will have mercy on them, and to our God, for he will freely pardon. “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands. Instead of the thornbush will grow the juniper, and instead of briers the myrtle will grow. This will be for the LORD’s renown, for an everlasting sign, that will endure forever.”

    This is what the LORD says: “Maintain justice and do what is right, for my salvation is close at hand and my righteousness will soon be revealed. Blessed is the one who does this— the person who holds it fast, who keeps the Sabbath without desecrating it, and keeps their hands from doing any evil.” Let no foreigner who is bound to the LORD say, “The LORD will surely exclude me from his people.” And let no eunuch complain, “I am only a dry tree.” For this is what the LORD says: “To the eunuchs who keep my Sabbaths, who choose what pleases me and hold fast to my covenant— to them I will give within my temple and its walls a memorial and a name better than sons and daughters; I will give them an everlasting name that will endure forever. And foreigners who bind themselves to the LORD to minister to him, to love the name of the LORD, and to be his servants, all who keep the Sabbath without desecrating it and who hold fast to my covenant— these I will bring to my holy mountain and give them joy in my house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be accepted on my altar; for my house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.” The Sovereign LORD declares— he who gathers the exiles of Israel: “I will gather still others to them besides those already gathered.”

    Come, all you beasts of the field, come and devour, all you beasts of the forest! Israel’s watchmen are blind, they all lack knowledge; they are all mute dogs, they cannot bark; they lie around and dream, they love to sleep. They are dogs with mighty appetites; they never have enough. They are shepherds who lack understanding; they all turn to their own way, they seek their own gain. “Come,” each one cries, “let me get wine! Let us drink our fill of beer! And tomorrow will be like today, or even far better.”

    The righteous perish, and no one takes it to heart; the devout are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil. Those who walk uprightly enter into peace; they find rest as they lie in death. “But you—come here, you children of a sorceress, you offspring of adulterers and prostitutes! Who are you mocking? At whom do you sneer and stick out your tongue? Are you not a brood of rebels, the offspring of liars? You burn with lust among the oaks and under every spreading tree; you sacrifice your children in the ravines and under the overhanging crags. The idols among the smooth stones of the ravines are your portion; indeed, they are your lot. Yes, to them you have poured out drink offerings and offered grain offerings. In view of all this, should I relent?

    You have made your bed on a high and lofty hill; there you went up to offer your sacrifices. Behind your doors and your doorposts you have put your pagan symbols. Forsaking me, you uncovered your bed, you climbed into it and opened it wide; you made a pact with those whose beds you love, and you looked with lust on their naked bodies. You went to Molek with olive oil and increased your perfumes. You sent your ambassadors far away; you descended to the very realm of the dead! You wearied yourself by such going about, but you would not say, ‘It is hopeless.’ You found renewal of your strength, and so you did not faint. “Whom have you so dreaded and feared that you have not been true to me, and have neither remembered me nor taken this to heart? Is it not because I have long been silent that you do not fear me? I will expose your righteousness and your works, and they will not benefit you. When you cry out for help, let your collection of idols save you! The wind will carry all of them off, a mere breath will blow them away. But whoever takes refuge in me will inherit the land and possess my holy mountain.”

    And it will be said: “Build up, build up, prepare the road! Remove the obstacles out of the way of my people.” For this is what the high and exalted One says— he who lives forever, whose name is holy: “I live in a high and holy place, but also with the one who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite. I will not accuse them forever, nor will I always be angry, for then they would faint away because of me— the very people I have created. I was enraged by their sinful greed; I punished them, and hid my face in anger, yet they kept on in their willful ways. I have seen their ways, but I will heal them; I will guide them and restore comfort to Israel’s mourners, creating praise on their lips. Peace, peace, to those far and near,” says the LORD. “And I will heal them.” But the wicked are like the tossing sea, which cannot rest, whose waves cast up mire and mud. “There is no peace,” says my God, “for the wicked.”

    “Shout it aloud, do not hold back. Raise your voice like a trumpet. Declare to my people their rebellion and to the descendants of Jacob their sins. For day after day they seek me out; they seem eager to know my ways, as if they were a nation that does what is right and has not forsaken the commands of its God. They ask me for just decisions and seem eager for God to come near them. ‘Why have we fasted,’ they say, ‘and you have not seen it? Why have we humbled ourselves, and you have not noticed?’ “Yet on the day of your fasting, you do as you please and exploit all your workers. Your fasting ends in quarreling and strife, and in striking each other with wicked fists. You cannot fast as you do today and expect your voice to be heard on high. Is this the kind of fast I have chosen, only a day for people to humble themselves? Is it only for bowing one’s head like a reed and for lying in sackcloth and ashes? Is that what you call a fast, a day acceptable to the LORD? “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter— when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?

    Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard. Then you will call, and the LORD will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I. “If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk, and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday. The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings. “If you keep your feet from breaking the Sabbath and from doing as you please on my holy day, if you call the Sabbath a delight and the LORD’s holy day honorable, and if you honor it by not going your own way and not doing as you please or speaking idle words, then you will find your joy in the LORD, and I will cause you to ride in triumph on the heights of the land and to feast on the inheritance of your father Jacob.” The mouth of the LORD has spoken.

    Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear. For your hands are stained with blood, your fingers with guilt. Your lips have spoken falsely, and your tongue mutters wicked things. No one calls for justice; no one pleads a case with integrity. They rely on empty arguments, they utter lies; they conceive trouble and give birth to evil. They hatch the eggs of vipers and spin a spider’s web. Whoever eats their eggs will die, and when one is broken, an adder is hatched. Their cobwebs are useless for clothing; they cannot cover themselves with what they make. Their deeds are evil deeds, and acts of violence are in their hands. Their feet rush into sin; they are swift to shed innocent blood. They pursue evil schemes; acts of violence mark their ways. The way of peace they do not know; there is no justice in their paths. They have turned them into crooked roads; no one who walks along them will know peace. So justice is far from us, and righteousness does not reach us. We look for light, but all is darkness; for brightness, but we walk in deep shadows. Like the blind we grope along the wall, feeling our way like people without eyes. At midday we stumble as if it were twilight; among the strong, we are like the dead. We all growl like bears; we moan mournfully like doves.

    We look for justice, but find none; for deliverance, but it is far away. For our offenses are many in your sight, and our sins testify against us. Our offenses are ever with us, and we acknowledge our iniquities: rebellion and treachery against the LORD, turning our backs on our God, inciting revolt and oppression, uttering lies our hearts have conceived. So justice is driven back, and righteousness stands at a distance; truth has stumbled in the streets, honesty cannot enter. Truth is nowhere to be found, and whoever shuns evil becomes a prey. The LORD looked and was displeased that there was no justice. He saw that there was no one, he was appalled that there was no one to intervene; so his own arm achieved salvation for him, and his own righteousness sustained him. He put on righteousness as his breastplate, and the helmet of salvation on his head; he put on the garments of vengeance and wrapped himself in zeal as in a cloak. According to what they have done, so will he repay wrath to his enemies and retribution to his foes; he will repay the islands their due. From the west, people will fear the name of the LORD, and from the rising of the sun, they will revere his glory. For he will come like a pent-up flood that the breath of the LORD drives along. “The Redeemer will come to Zion, to those in Jacob who repent of their sins,” declares the LORD. “As for me, this is my covenant with them,” says the LORD. “My Spirit, who is on you, will not depart from you, and my words that I have put in your mouth will always be on your lips, on the lips of your children and on the lips of their descendants—from this time on and forever,” says the LORD.

    “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the LORD rises upon you and his glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn. “Lift up your eyes and look about you: All assemble and come to you; your sons come from afar, and your daughters are carried on the hip. Then you will look and be radiant, your heart will throb and swell with joy; the wealth on the seas will be brought to you, to you the riches of the nations will come. Herds of camels will cover your land, young camels of Midian and Ephah. And all from Sheba will come, bearing gold and incense and proclaiming the praise of the LORD. All Kedar’s flocks will be gathered to you, the rams of Nebaioth will serve you; they will be accepted as offerings on my altar, and I will adorn my glorious temple. “Who are these that fly along like clouds, like doves to their nests? Surely the islands look to me; in the lead are the ships of Tarshish, bringing your children from afar, with their silver and gold, to the honor of the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, for he has endowed you with splendor. “Foreigners will rebuild your walls, and their kings will serve you. Though in anger I struck you, in favor I will show you compassion. Your gates will always stand open, they will never be shut, day or night, so that people may bring you the wealth of the nations— their kings led in triumphal procession. For the nation or kingdom that will not serve you will perish; it will be utterly ruined. “The glory of Lebanon will come to you, the juniper, the fir and the cypress together, to adorn my sanctuary; and I will glorify the place for my feet.  

    The children of your oppressors will come bowing before you; all who despise you will bow down at your feet and will call you the City of the LORD, Zion of the Holy One of Israel. “Although you have been forsaken and hated, with no one traveling through, I will make you the everlasting pride and the joy of all generations. You will drink the milk of nations and be nursed at royal breasts. Then you will know that I, the LORD, am your Savior, your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob. Instead of bronze I will bring you gold, and silver in place of iron. Instead of wood I will bring you bronze, and iron in place of stones. I will make peace your governor and well-being your ruler. No longer will violence be heard in your land, nor ruin or destruction within your borders, but you will call your walls Salvation and your gates Praise. The sun will no more be your light by day, nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you, for the LORD will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory. Your sun will never set again, and your moon will wane no more; the LORD will be your everlasting light, and your days of sorrow will end. Then all your people will be righteous and they will possess the land forever. They are the shoot I have planted, the work of my hands, for the display of my splendor. The least of you will become a thousand, the smallest a mighty nation. I am the LORD; in its time I will do this swiftly.”

    The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion— to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor. They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations. Strangers will shepherd your flocks; foreigners will work your fields and vineyards. And you will be called priests of the LORD, you will be named ministers of our God. You will feed on the wealth of nations, and in their riches you will boast.

    Instead of your shame you will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace you will rejoice in your inheritance. And so you will inherit a double portion in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours. “For I, the LORD, love justice; I hate robbery and wrongdoing. In my faithfulness I will reward my people and make an everlasting covenant with them.  Their descendants will be known among the nations and their offspring among the peoples. All who see them will acknowledge that they are a people the LORD has blessed.” I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign LORD will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations.

    For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, for Jerusalem’s sake I will not remain quiet, till her vindication shines out like the dawn, her salvation like a blazing torch. The nations will see your vindication, and all kings your glory; you will be called by a new name that the mouth of the LORD will bestow. You will be a crown of splendor in the LORD’s hand, a royal diadem in the hand of your God. No longer will they call you Deserted, or name your land Desolate. But you will be called Hephzibah, and your land Beulah; for the LORD will take delight in you, and your land will be married. As a young man marries a young woman, so will your Builder marry you; as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you. I have posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night.

    You who call on the LORD, give yourselves no rest, and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth. The LORD has sworn by his right hand and by his mighty arm: “Never again will I give your grain as food for your enemies, and never again will foreigners drink the new wine for which you have toiled; but those who harvest it will eat it and praise the LORD, and those who gather the grapes will drink it in the courts of my sanctuary.” Pass through, pass through the gates! Prepare the way for the people. Build up, build up the highway! Remove the stones. Raise a banner for the nations. The LORD has made proclamation to the ends of the earth: “Say to Daughter Zion, ‘See, your Savior comes! See, his reward is with him, and his recompense accompanies him.’” They will be called the Holy People, the Redeemed of the LORD; and you will be called Sought After, the City No Longer Deserted.

    I will tell of the kindnesses of the LORD, the deeds for which he is to be praised, according to all the LORD has done for us— yes, the many good things he has done for Israel, according to his compassion and many kindnesses. He said, “Surely they are my people, children who will be true to me”; and so he became their Savior. In all their distress he too was distressed, and the angel of his presence saved them. In his love and mercy he redeemed them; he lifted them up and carried them all the days of old. Yet they rebelled and grieved his Holy Spirit. So he turned and became their enemy and he himself fought against them. Then his people recalled the days of old, the days of Moses and his people— where is he who brought them through the sea, with the shepherd of his flock? Where is he who set his Holy Spirit among them, who sent his glorious arm of power to be at Moses’ right hand, who divided the waters before them, to gain for himself everlasting renown, who led them through the depths?

    Like a horse in open country, they did not stumble; like cattle that go down to the plain, they were given rest by the Spirit of the LORD. This is how you guided your people to make for yourself a glorious name. Look down from heaven and see, from your lofty throne, holy and glorious. Where are your zeal and your might? Your tenderness and compassion are withheld from us. But you are our Father, though Abraham does not know us or Israel acknowledge us; you, LORD, are our Father, our Redeemer from of old is your name. Why, LORD, do you make us wander from your ways and harden our hearts so we do not revere you? Return for the sake of your servants, the tribes that are your inheritance. For a little while your people possessed your holy place, but now our enemies have trampled down your sanctuary. We are yours from of old; but you have not ruled over them, they have not been called by your name.

    Oh, that you would rend the heavens and come down, that the mountains would tremble before you! As when fire sets twigs ablaze and causes water to boil, come down to make your name known to your enemies and cause the nations to quake before you! For when you did awesome things that we did not expect, you came down, and the mountains trembled before you. Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who acts on behalf of those who wait for him. You come to the help of those who gladly do right, who remember your ways. But when we continued to sin against them, you were angry. How then can we be saved? All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the wind our sins sweep us away. No one calls on your name or strives to lay hold of you; for you have hidden your face from us and have given us over to our sins. Yet you, LORD, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand. Do not be angry beyond measure, LORD; do not remember our sins forever. Oh, look on us, we pray, for we are all your people. Your sacred cities have become a wasteland; even Zion is a wasteland, Jerusalem a desolation. Our holy and glorious temple, where our ancestors praised you, has been burned with fire, and all that we treasured lies in ruins. After all this, LORD, will you hold yourself back? Will you keep silent and punish us beyond measure?

    “I revealed myself to those who did not ask for me; I was found by those who did not seek me. To a nation that did not call on my name, I said, ‘Here am I, here am I.’ All day long I have held out my hands to an obstinate people, who walk in ways not good, pursuing their own imaginations— a people who continually provoke me to my very face, offering sacrifices in gardens and burning incense on altars of brick; who sit among the graves and spend their nights keeping secret vigil; who eat the flesh of pigs, and whose pots hold broth of impure meat; who say, ‘Keep away; don’t come near me, for I am too sacred for you!’ Such people are smoke in my nostrils, a fire that keeps burning all day. “See, it stands written before me: I will not keep silent but will pay back in full; I will pay it back into their laps— both your sins and the sins of your ancestors,” says the LORD. “Because they burned sacrifices on the mountains and defied me on the hills, I will measure into their laps the full payment for their former deeds.” This is what the LORD says: “As when juice is still found in a cluster of grapes and people say, ‘Don’t destroy it, there is still a blessing in it,’ so will I do in behalf of my servants; I will not destroy them all. I will bring forth descendants from Jacob, and from Judah those who will possess my mountains; my chosen people will inherit them, and there will my servants live.

    Sharon will become a pasture for flocks, and the Valley of Achor a resting place for herds, for my people who seek me. “But as for you who forsake the LORD and forget my holy mountain, who spread a table for Fortune and fill bowls of mixed wine for Destiny, I will destine you for the sword, and all of you will fall in the slaughter; for I called but you did not answer, I spoke but you did not listen. You did evil in my sight and chose what displeases me.” Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: “My servants will eat, but you will go hungry; my servants will drink, but you will go thirsty; my servants will rejoice, but you will be put to shame. My servants will sing out of the joy of their hearts, but you will cry out from anguish of heart and wail in brokenness of spirit. You will leave your name for my chosen ones to use in their curses; the Sovereign LORD will put you to death, but to his servants he will give another name. Whoever invokes a blessing in the land will do so by the one true God; whoever takes an oath in the land will swear by the one true God. For the past troubles will be forgotten and hidden from my eyes.

    “See, I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind. But be glad and rejoice forever in what I will create, for I will create Jerusalem to be a delight and its people a joy. I will rejoice over Jerusalem and take delight in my people; the sound of weeping and of crying will be heard in it no more. “Never again will there be in it an infant who lives but a few days, or an old man who does not live out his years; the one who dies at a hundred will be thought a mere child; the one who fails to reach a hundred will be considered accursed. They will build houses and dwell in them; they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit. No longer will they build houses and others live in them, or plant and others eat. For as the days of a tree, so will be the days of my people; my chosen ones will long enjoy the work of their hands. They will not labor in vain, nor will they bear children doomed to misfortune; for they will be a people blessed by the LORD, they and their descendants with them. Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear. The wolf and the lamb will feed together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox, and dust will be the serpent’s food. They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain,” says the LORD.

    This is what the LORD says: “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. Where is the house you will build for me? Where will my resting place be? Has not my hand made all these things, and so they came into being?” declares the LORD. “These are the ones I look on with favor: those who are humble and contrite in spirit, and who tremble at my word. But whoever sacrifices a bull is like one who kills a person, and whoever offers a lamb is like one who breaks a dog’s neck; whoever makes a grain offering is like one who presents pig’s blood, and whoever burns memorial incense is like one who worships an idol. They have chosen their own ways, and they delight in their abominations; so I also will choose harsh treatment for them and will bring on them what they dread. For when I called, no one answered, when I spoke, no one listened. They did evil in my sight and chose what displeases me.” Hear the word of the LORD, you who tremble at his word: “Your own people who hate you, and exclude you because of my name, have said, ‘Let the LORD be glorified, that we may see your joy!’ Yet they will be put to shame. Hear that uproar from the city, hear that noise from the temple! It is the sound of the LORD repaying his enemies all they deserve. “Before she goes into labor, she gives birth; before the pains come upon her, she delivers a son. Who has ever heard of such things? Who has ever seen things like this?

    Can a country be born in a day or a nation be brought forth in a moment? Yet no sooner is Zion in labor than she gives birth to her children. Do I bring to the moment of birth and not give delivery?” says the LORD. “Do I close up the womb when I bring to delivery?” says your God. “Rejoice with Jerusalem and be glad for her, all you who love her; rejoice greatly with her, all you who mourn over her. For you will nurse and be satisfied at her comforting breasts; you will drink deeply and delight in her overflowing abundance.” For this is what the LORD says: “I will extend peace to her like a river, and the wealth of nations like a flooding stream; you will nurse and be carried on her arm and dandled on her knees. As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted over Jerusalem.” When you see this, your heart will rejoice and you will flourish like grass; the hand of the LORD will be made known to his servants, but his fury will be shown to his foes. See, the LORD is coming with fire, and his chariots are like a whirlwind; he will bring down his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire. For with fire and with his sword the LORD will execute judgment on all people, and many will be those slain by the LORD. “Those who consecrate and purify themselves to go into the gardens, following one who is among those who eat the flesh of pigs, rats and other unclean things—they will meet their end together with the one they follow,” declares the LORD.

    “And I, because of what they have planned and done, am about to come and gather the people of all nations and languages, and they will come and see my glory. “I will set a sign among them, and I will send some of those who survive to the nations—to Tarshish, to the Libyans and Lydians (famous as archers), to Tubal and Greece, and to the distant islands that have not heard of my fame or seen my glory. They will proclaim my glory among the nations. And they will bring all your people, from all the nations, to my holy mountain in Jerusalem as an offering to the LORD—on horses, in chariots and wagons, and on mules and camels,” says the LORD. “They will bring them, as the Israelites bring their grain offerings, to the temple of the LORD in ceremonially clean vessels. And I will select some of them also to be priests and Levites,” says the LORD. “As the new heavens and the new earth that I make will endure before me,” declares the LORD, “so will your name and descendants endure. From one New Moon to another and from one Sabbath to another, all mankind will come and bow down before me,” says the LORD. “And they will go out and look on the dead bodies of those who rebelled against me; the worms that eat them will not die, the fire that burns them will not be quenched, and they will be loathsome to all mankind.”

So I let the cat out of the bag. The story of us was finally revealed. @ PA, it wasn't well received. Nobody even commented on it. And because of that, I decided it was time to move on. I no longer have any use for lack of the right words to be there. If you aren't part of their little clique, you get the cold shoulder. IMO, it has turned into a money pit. So be it!

    Keep talking and keep walking. As long as the talk aligns with the walk, you won't be Apathic. Apathy is the main problem with all of this stuff. The phrase of, "It's classified," is utter BS, IMO. Sick of hearing that. If you can't say it like it is, then shut the hell up. That includes these so-called experts. Richard Dolen comes to mind. Well known UFO researcher. He is still searching at the last count. Simply because he can't see one when he's stuck in his chair. And he is revered as an expert? But hasn't seen a real UFO? I have been at this house for 9 years now and I have seen 4 UFOs off my back porch. You have to look up. It's not that hard. I've seen at least a baker's dozen in my lifetime. Just look up! They are everywhere. Expert, my butt. But go buy his books. LOLs The firsthand will always trump the secondhand.

    "I'm as mad as hell. I've had enough. And I'm NOT going to take this anymore." Well said OXY.  Toast

    Scientology and ‘aliens’: What did L. Ron Hubbard actually say about space invaders?
    By Tony Ortega | December 12, 2016


    The article contains a few video extracts from a lecture LRH gave in the early 50's called "The role of Earth " Realize we were in 1952 then and I trust no one was talking about these things in these days

    It's not that I am much interested in the subject of Space opera  nowadays. I have been but it seems these days my interest is more oriented towards my/our abilities , how we create the world, how to trigger synchronicities, ... But I thought you may enjoy listening to LRH Morpheus.

    Mudra, that was so cool of you!  cheers  I ate it all up like candy! I must be a Scientologist without knowing that I am.  Crazy Happy  For LRH to establish our prison planet was spot on! I want more!!!!!!!!!!! bounce

    In my space of knowing in the now, I have been doing what LRH was doing, but he developed a system to which to uncover these truths. Uncanny if you ask me. And maybe the reason why he wrote back to me as he saw the potential I had at the time. I wish I still had that letter.

    Talk about invaders...I did find something on OXY's thread. It is a ship. I also ran across this ship recently. There were several of them parked around a crater on the moon. But the first time I saw this ship or type of ship, was when I went out into space. There were hundreds of them all lined up behind a veil, and my impression was an invasion fleet. What got me was the shape. Not your typical type, but now that my awareness has expanded, what is typical? Tony {Abrax} of the Thubans thought I was playing a computer space game. When I find that photo of these ships around that crater, I will edit it in this thread somewhere. But OXY has one on his thread and if you don't mind, I will post it here.

    Because of this event, the Gov has been moving many UFO assets as of late. They have been moving things with their underground tunnel systems. They have moved my ship once more. I got validation on this over the past weekend. They are tightening up their security. And although they have moved many assets over the years to other bases, they are doing their best to keep their agenda hidden.


    The Gov does not care about you. They will KILL you!

    Many thanks Mudra!  Flowers  You're the best!

    I Discussed 'They Live' with 'RA'
    in a Grocery Store at 3AM!!



    This Present Madness seems to be an escalation and emasculation, possibly in preparation for some sort of 'Main-Event' which might've been planned centuries ago, and is now in the process of being orchestrated. What if the End of the Millennium is A.D. 2133?? What if we are living in a 120 year End of the World?? As it was in the Days of Noah?? A.D. 2013 to A.D. 2133?? I think I've inadvertently created a bunch of Red-Herrings throughout the years. I don't think I did this on purpose. I was simply on a Pseudo-Intellectual Fishing-Expedition. What if my life is nothing more than a System-Test?? What if this isn't about me at all?? What if this is All About All of You in an Ancient-Matrix Direct-Democracy Planet-Purgatory?? My threads might be boring and hard to comprehend, but some of you should probably study All of Them, creating some sort of a Summary and Analysis. I suspect that 5% might be profound, with the rest not worth much of anything to anyone.

    Consider reading Deuteronomy, Psalms, Isaiah, Daniel, Luke, Acts, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Hebrews, and James (straight-through, over and over). There is a method to my madness, but I'll leave this as a mystery (for now). There's something interesting about scholarly and devotional theological-studies (even if a lot of it is negative and difficult). I certainly don't recommend this for most people. It's probably too-disruptive. There was something cool about the Crystal Cathedral in the 1980's (if one could look past the pompous and supercilious Celebrity-Churchianity). Perhaps reading all of Dr. Robert H. Schuller's books (from oldest to newest, straight-through, over and over) might be an excellent foundation for someone's doctoral-dissertation. I keep repeating that I can't be of much help in a lot of this stuff. I think I've been too messed-with and hamstrung. Someday, you'll find out what I'm talking about. I hope they don't get YOU. But what if ALL of US have already been messed-with?? What if MOST of US are demonically-possessed?? ALL of US might be in More of a War than we can possibly imagine. This thing might be an Ancient Star-War in Heaven and Earth. I desire a positive-outcome for All-Concerned (and unconcerned) but we might have a Hell of a Time for a Very-Long Time. Namaste and Godspeed.

    Has my recent posting upset someone?? Did the dogs start barking?? Have I finally gone too far?? Is there desperation in a certain faction (or all factions)?? What if this thing is a Beast-Supercomputer v Hybrid-Hermaphrodite v Human-Male v Human-Female Soul-Struggle?? What if we all get rotated through all categories?? What if most everything is BS (even at this late date)?? Look very closely at the last couple of paragraphs of this post. I'm NOT preparing to do something. I'm preparing to do nothing. That should be reassuring, shouldn't it??

    I recently made a couple of posts on another website -- which were almost immediately deleted without explanation. The posts mirrored some aspects of my last few posts on The Mists. They were small and sterile compared to what I routinely post on this site -- but I sort of expected the censorship -- judging from past experience. I won't be posting on that site anymore -- which I'm sure will not cause weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth. Just the opposite. I should've learned my lesson from past bad-experiences involving misuse and abuse. There's nothing quite like Christian Love!! To top it off -- an individual of interest didn't show-up as expected -- and I think I might know why. I'm sorry about my posting. I am quite bold and forward -- yet I am also quite neutral and emotionless. I reveal things without rancor. I never tell anyone they're "going to hell" or the equivalent. I like to think I could talk about the most upsetting subjects without losing my cool -- but I know that isn't true. I've already been highly-embarrassed -- but I don't think I've seen anything yet!! I think I've been extremely sheltered and/or ignored. I think any sort of "hot-seat" would destroy me.

    I'm a slow and methodical (research and reflect) kind of guy. I never feel the need to lead -- but I often feel the need for information and access. I'm increasingly feeling the need to retreat into some illusion of privacy and safety (even though I know there is no such thing anymore). I think I've made myself extremely-vulnerable in the past couple of days. Some of this was by accident -- and some of it was by design. I think we've been on the brink for years -- but some sort of severe-meltdown in the next couple of weeks or months wouldn't surprise me one little bit. I've been somewhat critical of Solar-System Administration (ancient and modern) yet I've mostly been engaging in a process of Discovery rather than Condemnation and Damnation. Reprehensible-Governance Methodologies and Realities might be Inevitable -- Regardless of Idealism and Competence (Or Lack Thereof).


    Regarding The Hidden Story of Jesus -- what and/or where is the Old, Old Story of Jesus and His Love in the Old Testament (as the Pre-Incarnate Second-Member of the Trinity)?? Regarding The Hidden Story of Jesus -- what and/or where is the Old, Old Story of Jesus and His Love (As Told in the Four-Gospels) in Acts Through Revelation?? I'm frankly disillusioned by Theology As Usual -- and by Flowery New Age Mumbo-Jumbo. I've tried Unorthodox-Approaches (with mixed-results) over the past several years -- and I've finally ended-up taking a closer-look at what the scholars from the Church of My Youth were writing in the 1950's (as backward and uninteresting as THAT sounds)!! I've linked this study to Sacred Classical Music -- Classical Church-Architecture -- and Natural-Farming (as old and odd as THAT sounds)!! I think things are going to get REALLY screwed-up for a while -- as the Info-War intensifies. There's probably no nice and delicate way to do this. Unfortunately, a lot of fine people and not so fine people are going to get hurt. I've already been badly-burned.

    Check this out!! http://www.rethinkingadventism.com/support-files/cottrell_1844.pdf It's probably fortunate that a lot of my posts are speculative, unsubstantiated, and science-fictional. If they were substantiated-fact, we'd all be in a hell of a lot of trouble!! It's going to be a relief to stop modeling strange ideas and personalities!! I have a huge amount of reading to do!! I'm going to try to not spend much time on the internet. I stopped watching television several years ago -- so perhaps I can stop surfing the internet. Becoming a Latter-day Luddite is quite appealing, at this point!! Consider prayerfully and carefully studying Ethics, Law, Law-Enforcement, and the Military in Each of the 66 Books of the Bible -- noting the differences and similarities from book to book. Overall, what is "Biblical" regarding Ethics, Law, Law-Enforcement, and the Military (for Jews, Gentiles, and All-Concerned in Antiquity and Modernity)?? Once again, imagine the intense and disciplined study of Sacred Classical Music and the SDA Bible Commentary in the Context of a Cathedral and/or an Ivy-League University!! What Would Dr. A. Graham Maxwell Say?? What Would HMS Richards Say??  Ellen White meets Notre Dame??!! What Would Marcel Dupre Say?? What Would Dr. Angela Kraft Cross Say?? What Would Monseigneur Bowe Say?? What Would Brother Michael Say?? What Would Brother Rich Say?? What Would Sister Angie Say??

    Imagine a School consisting of the Abbey in the Second-Season of Helix which taught Sacred Classical Music -- The SDA Bible Commentary -- and Farming!! This wouldn't necessarily be any religion. It would simply be an experiment. Each-Day might be a combination of a School-Day -- Sabbath-Day -- and a Work-Day with Meditative-Work!! I work on the Sabbath -- but it's Meditative-Work -- which doesn't make it OK -- but it might not be NOT OK in someone's reckoning!! What I'm suggesting is probably nearly impossible. It might work on another planet -- but probably not on this one!! Still -- I think there is a logical-purity connected with this concept!! I'm not going to explain or elaborate -- but someone might understand what I'm talking about!! Living this life might be Heaven on Earth -- but would it prepare one for the Real-World?? Probably Not!! My Final-Answer is Probably "Reading the SDA Bible Commentary straight-through (over and over) while listening to Sacred Classical Music -- in one's own way and time -- plus nothing." Perhaps I should leave it at that -- and just move on. I think I've made a mess of things -- and perhaps I should simply cease and desist for the remainder of this incarnation. Another Thing. Consider "Commandments" from Genesis to Revelation. One Last Thing. Think long and hard about the last dozen posts. Long and Hard Indeed...

    Commandments www.biblerick.com/c511.htm#c511

    GENESIS

    26:5     Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.

    EXODUS

    15:26    And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.

    16:28    And the LORD said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws?

    20:6     And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

    24:12    And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them.

    34:28    And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.

    LEVITICUS

    4:2      Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If a soul shall sin through ignorance against any of the commandments of the LORD concerning things which ought not to be done, and shall do against any of them:

    4:13     And if the whole congregation of Israel sin through ignorance, and the thing be hid from the eyes of the assembly, and they have done somewhat against any of the commandments of the LORD concerning things which should not be done, and are guilty;

    4:22     When a ruler hath sinned, and done somewhat through ignorance against any of the commandments of the LORD his God concerning things which should not be done, and is guilty;

    4:27     And if any one of the common people sin through ignorance, while he doeth somewhat against any of the commandments of the LORD concerning things which ought not to be done, and be guilty;

    5:17     And if a soul sin, and commit any of these things which are forbidden to be done by the commandments of the LORD; though he wist it not, yet is he guilty, and shall bear his iniquity.

    22:31    Therefore shall ye keep my commandments, and do them: I am the LORD.

    26:3     If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them;

    26:14    But if ye will not hearken unto me, and will not do all these commandments;

    26:15    And if ye shall despise my statutes, or if your soul abhor my judgments, so that ye will not do all my commandments, but that ye break my covenant:

    27:34    These are the commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in mount Sinai.

    NUMBERS

    15:22    And if ye have erred, and not observed all these commandments, which the LORD hath spoken unto Moses,

    15:39    And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of the LORD, and do them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring:

    15:40    That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your God.

    36:13    These are the commandments and the judgments, which the LORD commanded by the hand of Moses unto the children of Israel in the plains of Moab by Jordan near Jericho.

    DEUTERONOMY

    4:2      Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.

    4:13     And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of stone.

    4:40     Thou shalt keep therefore his statutes, and his commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days upon the earth, which the LORD thy God giveth thee, for ever.

    5:10     And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.

    5:29     O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!

    5:31     But as for thee, stand thou here by me, and I will speak unto thee all the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which thou shalt teach them, that they may do them in the land which I give them to possess it.

    6:1      Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments, which the LORD your God commanded to teach you, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go to possess it:

    6:2      That thou mightest fear the LORD thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son’s son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.

    6:17     Ye shall diligently keep the commandments of the LORD your God, and his testimonies, and his statutes, which he hath commanded thee.

    6:25     And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the LORD our God, as he hath commanded us.

    7:9      Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;

    7:11     Thou shalt therefore keep the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which I command thee this day, to do them.

    8:1      All the commandments which I command thee this day shall ye observe to do, that ye may live, and multiply, and go in and possess the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers.

    8:2      And thou shalt remember all the way which the LORD thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no.

    8:6      Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him.

    8:11     Beware that thou forget not the LORD thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day:

    10:4     And he wrote on the tables, according to the first writing, the ten commandments, which the LORD spake unto you in the mount out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly: and the LORD gave them unto me.

    10:13    To keep the commandments of the LORD, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good?

    11:1     Therefore thou shalt love the LORD thy God, and keep his charge, and his statutes, and his judgments, and his commandments, alway.

    11:8     Therefore shall ye keep all the commandments which I command you this day, that ye may be strong, and go in and possess the land, whither ye go to possess it;

    11:13    And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the LORD your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul,

    11:22    For if ye shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you, to do them, to love the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, and to cleave unto him;

    11:27    A blessing, if ye obey the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you this day:

    11:28    And a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of the LORD your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which ye have not known.

    13:4     Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.

    13:18    When thou shalt hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep all his commandments which I command thee this day, to do that which is right in the eyes of the LORD thy God.

    15:5     Only if thou carefully hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all these commandments which I command thee this day.

    19:9     If thou shalt keep all these commandments to do them, which I command thee this day, to love the LORD thy God, and to walk ever in his ways; then shalt thou add three cities more for thee, beside these three:

    26:13    Then thou shalt say before the LORD thy God, I have brought away the hallowed things out of mine house, and also have given them unto the Levite, and unto the stranger, to the fatherless, and to the widow, according to all thy commandments which thou hast commanded me: I have not transgressed thy commandments, neither have I forgotten them:

    26:17    Thou hast avouched the LORD this day to be thy God, and to walk in his ways, and to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and to hearken unto his voice:

    26:18    And the LORD hath avouched thee this day to be his peculiar people, as he hath promised thee, and that thou shouldest keep all his commandments;

    27:1     And Moses with the elders of Israel commanded the people, saying, Keep all the commandments which I command you this day.

    27:10    Thou shalt therefore obey the voice of the LORD thy God, and do his commandments and his statutes, which I command thee this day.

    28:1     And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:

    28:9     The LORD shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, and walk in his ways.

    28:13    And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:

    28:15    But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:

    28:45    Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee:

    30:8     And thou shalt return and obey the voice of the LORD, and do all his commandments which I command thee this day.

    30:10    If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.

    30:16    In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.

    31:5     And the LORD shall give them up before your face, that ye may do unto them according unto all the commandments which I have commanded you.

    JOSHUA

    22:5     But take diligent heed to do the commandment and the law, which Moses the servant of the LORD charged you, to love the LORD your God, and to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and to cleave unto him, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul.

    JUDGES

    2:17     And yet they would not hearken unto their judges, but they went a whoring after other gods, and bowed themselves unto them: they turned quickly out of the way which their fathers walked in, obeying the commandments of the LORD; but they did not so.

    3:4      And they were to prove Israel by them, to know whether they would hearken unto the commandments of the LORD, which he commanded their fathers by the hand of Moses.

    1 SAMUEL

    15:11    It repenteth me that I have set up Saul to be king: for he is turned back from following me, and hath not performed my commandments. And it grieved Samuel; and he cried unto the LORD all night.

    1 KINGS

    2:3      And keep the charge of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and his testimonies, as it is written in the law of Moses, that thou mayest prosper in all that thou doest, and whithersoever thou turnest thyself:

    3:14     And if thou wilt walk in my ways, to keep my statutes and my commandments, as thy father David did walk, then I will lengthen thy days.

    6:12     Concerning this house which thou art in building, if thou wilt walk in my statutes, and execute my judgments, and keep all my commandments to walk in them; then will I perform my word with thee, which I spake unto David thy father:

    8:58     That he may incline our hearts unto him, to walk in all his ways, and to keep his commandments, and his statutes, and his judgments, which he commanded our fathers.

    8:61     Let your heart therefore be perfect with the LORD our God, to walk in his statutes, and to keep his commandments, as at this day.

    9:6      But if ye shall at all turn from following me, ye or your children, and will not keep my commandments and my statutes which I have set before you, but go and serve other gods, and worship them:

    11:34    Howbeit I will not take the whole kingdom out of his hand: but I will make him prince all the days of his life for David my servant’s sake, whom I chose, because he kept my commandments and my statutes:

    11:38    And it shall be, if thou wilt hearken unto all that I command thee, and wilt walk in my ways, and do that is right in my sight, to keep my statutes and my commandments, as David my servant did; that I will be with thee, and build thee a sure house, as I built for David, and will give Israel unto thee.

    14:8     And rent the kingdom away from the house of David, and gave it thee: and yet thou hast not been as my servant David, who kept my commandments, and who followed me with all his heart, to do that only which was right in mine eyes;

    18:18    And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father’s house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the LORD, and thou hast followed Baalim.

    2 KINGS

    17:13    Yet the LORD testified against Israel, and against Judah, by all the prophets, and by all the seers, saying, Turn ye from your evil ways, and keep my commandments and my statutes, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by my servants the prophets.

    17:16    And they left all the commandments of the LORD their God, and made them molten images, even two calves, and made a grove, and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served Baal.

    17:19    Also Judah kept not the commandments of the LORD their God, but walked in the statutes of Israel which they made.

    18:6     For he clave to the LORD, and departed not from following him, but kept his commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses.

    23:3     And the king stood by a pillar, and made a covenant before the LORD, to walk after the LORD, and to keep his commandments and his testimonies and his statutes with all their heart and all their soul, to perform the words of this covenant that were written in this book. And all the people stood to the covenant.

    1 CHRONICLES

    28:7     Moreover I will establish his kingdom for ever, if he be constant to do my commandments and my judgments, as at this day.

    28:8     Now therefore in the sight of all Israel the congregation of the LORD, and in the audience of our God, keep and seek for all the commandments of the LORD your God: that ye may possess this good land, and leave it for an inheritance for your children after you for ever.

    29:19    And give unto Solomon my son a perfect heart, to keep thy commandments, thy testimonies, and thy statutes, and to do all these things, and to build the palace, for the which I have made provision.

    2 CHRONICLES

    7:19     But if ye turn away, and forsake my statutes and my commandments, which I have set before you, and shall go and serve other gods, and worship them;

    17:4     But sought to the LORD God of his father, and walked in his commandments, and not after the doings of Israel.

    24:20    And the Spirit of God came upon Zechariah the son of Jehoiada the priest, which stood above the people, and said unto them, Thus saith God, Why transgress ye the commandments of the LORD, that ye cannot prosper? because ye have forsaken the LORD, he hath also forsaken you.

    31:21    And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, and in the law, and in the commandments, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart, and prospered.

    34:31    And the king stood in his place, and made a covenant before the LORD, to walk after the LORD, and to keep his commandments, and his testimonies, and his statutes, with all his heart, and with all his soul, to perform the words of the covenant which are written in this book.

    EZRA

    7:11     Now this is the copy of the letter that the king Artaxerxes gave unto Ezra the priest, the scribe, even a scribe of the words of the commandments of the LORD, and of his statutes to Israel.

    9:10     And now, O our God, what shall we say after this? for we have forsaken thy commandments,

    9:14     Should we again break thy commandments, and join in affinity with the people of these abominations? wouldest not thou be angry with us till thou hadst consumed us, so that there should be no remnant nor escaping?

    NEHEMIAH

    1:5      And said, I beseech thee, O LORD God of heaven, the great and terrible God, that keepeth covenant and mercy for them that love him and observe his commandments:

    1:7      We have dealt very corruptly against thee, and have not kept the commandments, nor the statutes, nor the judgments, which thou commandedst thy servant Moses.

    1:9      But if ye turn unto me, and keep my commandments, and do them; though there were of you cast out unto the uttermost part of the heaven, yet will I gather them from thence, and will bring them unto the place that I have chosen to set my name there.

    9:13     Thou camest down also upon mount Sinai, and spakest with them from heaven, and gavest them right judgments, and true laws, good statutes and commandments:

    9:16     But they and our fathers dealt proudly, and hardened their necks, and hearkened not to thy commandments,

    9:29     And testifiedst against them, that thou mightest bring them again unto thy law: yet they dealt proudly, and hearkened not unto thy commandments, but sinned against thy judgments, (which if a man do, he shall live in them;) and withdrew the shoulder, and hardened their neck, and would not hear.

    9:34     Neither have our kings, our princes, our priests, nor our fathers, kept thy law, nor hearkened unto thy commandments and thy testimonies, wherewith thou didst testify against them.

    10:29    They clave to their brethren, their nobles, and entered into a curse, and into an oath, to walk in God’s law, which was given by Moses the servant of God, and to observe and do all the commandments of the LORD our Lord, and his judgments and his statutes;

    PSALMS

    78:7       That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments:

    89:31      If they break my statutes, and keep not my commandments;

    103:18     To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.

    103:20     Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.

    111:7      The works of his hands are verity and judgment; all his commandments are sure.

    111:10     The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.

    112:1      Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in his commandments.

    119:6      Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.

    119:10     With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.

    119:19     I am a stranger in the earth: hide not thy commandments from me.

    119:21     Thou hast rebuked the proud that are cursed, which do err from thy commandments.

    119:32     I will run the way of thy commandments, when thou shalt enlarge my heart.

    119:35     Make me to go in the path of thy commandments; for therein do I delight.

    119:47     And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I have loved.

    119:48     My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved; and I will meditate in thy statutes.

    119:60     I made haste, and delayed not to keep thy commandments.

    119:66     Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed thy commandments.

    119:73     JOD. Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments.

    119:86     All thy commandments are faithful: they persecute me wrongfully; help thou me.

    119:98     Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me.

    119:115    Depart from me, ye evildoers: for I will keep the commandments of my God.

    119:127    Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold.

    119:131    I opened my mouth, and panted: for I longed for thy commandments.

    119:143    Trouble and anguish have taken hold on me: yet thy commandments are my delights.

    119:151    Thou art near, O LORD; and all thy commandments are truth.

    119:166    LORD, I have hoped for thy salvation, and done thy commandments.

    119:172    My tongue shall speak of thy word: for all thy commandments are righteousness.

    119:176    I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek thy servant; for I do not forget thy commandments.

    PROVERBS

    2:1      My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;

    3:1      My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:

    4:4      He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my words: keep my commandments, and live.

    7:1      My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee.

    7:2      Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye.

    10:8     The wise in heart will receive commandments: but a prating fool shall fall.

    ECCLESIASTES

    12:13    Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

    DANIEL

    9:4      And I prayed unto the LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments;

    AMOS

    2:4      Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Judah, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have despised the law of the LORD, and have not kept his commandments, and their lies caused them to err, after the which their fathers have walked:

    Matthew

    5:19     Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

    15:9     But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

    19:17    And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

    22:40    On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

    Mark

    7:7      Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

    10:19    Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.

    12:29    And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:

    Luke

    1:6      And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.

    18:20    Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother.

    John

    14:15    If ye love me, keep my commandments.

    15:10    If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.

    Acts

    1:2      Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen:

    1 Corinthians

    7:19     Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God.

    14:37    If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord.

    5:2      By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.

    5:3      For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

    2 John

    1:6      And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.

    Revelation

    12:17    And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

It seems to me, that you've allowed others to decide for you who you are, ortho. Why not shake yourself out of these dragon scales hidings... ehh.. hides and choose for yourself? Who are you, who do you want to be? That's where my question comes from:

    What would you've liked to have happened? Please answer me and use your imagination in a new way? Begin a whole new thread called "The new United States of the Solar System by Unorthodox Anonymous". Create, describe and share a world you (would) dream to come true (as) if you could make dreams come true.

    I don't expect you to take notice of this question properly and simply continue your running. Maybe that's the way it's meant to be, for you: finishing in exhaustion without a clue anymore about where you are, or how, or when. But very clear on who you are, at the finish.

    I don't wish you this, but it looks like it may go that way. By the way, pun intended, you're never alone, despite of what you may think and declare to be true, ortho. In the end we may have a great laugh about it. All of us who are your friends here. I'm almost sure we will, although a good laugh may be far from you now.
    Thank-you B.B. I think I might implement your thread suggestion!! Once again, these threads are experiments with modeled concepts and personalities. Who I am on this website is NOT who I am in real-life. Who I am in real-life is NOT who I am on a soul-level. What I would've liked to have happen -- going back to the Garden of Eden -- might've been impossible (right from the beginning). I simply don't have enough completely-accurate historical-information to properly answer your question. I've been reduced to positively-reinforcing that which presently-exists -- and then extrapolating back into antiquity for clues regarding the true-history of this solar-system. I use nature, science, and science-fiction as conceptual-crutches. What I'm NOT seeing is a proper foundation and believable-story in the Book of Genesis and the Garden of Eden. I've been looking at 1 Chronicles to Malachi -- and Acts to Ephesians -- in connection with the SDA Bible Commentary (Volumes 3, 4, 6) for clues regarding what a proper-foundation and believable-story might be.

    I probably won't be particularly friendly for the rest of my life. I don't really trust anyone (good or bad, friend or foe). 'RA' told me "Everyone is Bad." 'RA' was charming, but I sensed 'HE' could be good and evil simultaneously. Look at what the good-people did in the Bible. Look at how the good-people refuse to be honest about what the good-people did in the Bible. A conservative branch of the SDA church promotes the concept of Eschatological-Perfection yet they refuse to expose and condemn the Ancient-Imperfection of Divinity and Favored-Humanity. I endorse a modified version of Perfection which is strictly-honest and somewhat-humanistic. The Human-Potential Movement and the SDA Perfectionists should be Best-Buddies!! Spend a lot of time on Theodicy, Original-Sin, Ethics, and Eschatology. Our Eternal-Lives might depend on it. I won't say much because I am NOT a Master-Debater. Some think I'm Spiritually-Blind.

    I continue to like the idea of positively-reinforcing Rome -- London -- the United States -- the United Nations -- and Possible Moon Civilizations -- for clues as to how to proceed in modernity -- although some have suggested this would constitute an Unholy-Alliance. My plans are to study my internet-madness to death until I die (which might not give me much time) -- without saying or doing much of anything (which might prolong my life). Now I go incognito (again). Perhaps I won't post again unless someone posts on this thread. Perhaps I should only post responses. Perhaps I should try to secure a 600 square-foot office-apartment in a place like this!! Perhaps I should try to secure a 600 square-foot office-apartment in a place like this on another planet!! But perhaps I've worn-out my welcome throughout the universe!! Perhaps Ancient-Matrix Computer-Scientists are NOT Welcome!! What Would S.R. Hadden Say and Do??

    There is a flower
    Within my heart,
    Daisy, Daisy!
    Planted one day
    By a glancing dart,
    Planted by Daisy Bell!
    Whether she loves me
    Or loves me not,
    Sometimes it's hard to tell;
    Yet I am longing to share the lot -
    Of beautiful Daisy Bell!

    Daisy, Daisy,
    Give me your answer do!
    I'm half crazy,
    All for the love of you!
    It won't be a stylish marriage,
    I can't afford a carriage
    But you'll look sweet upon the seat
    Of a bicycle built for two.

    We will go “tandem”
    As man and wife,
    Daisy, Daisy!
    “Peddling” away
    Down the road of life,
    I and my Daisy Bell!
    When the road's dark
    We can both despise
    P'licemen and “lamps” as well;
    There are “bright lights”
    In the dazzling eyes
    Of beautiful Daisy Bell!

    Daisy, Daisy,
    Give me your answer do!
    I'm half crazy,
    All for the love of you!
    It won't be a stylish marriage,
    I can't afford a carriage
    But you'll look sweet upon the seat
    Of a bicycle built for two.

    I will stand by you
    In weal or woe,
    Daisy, Daisy!
    You'll be the bell(e)
    Which I'll ring you know!
    Sweet little Daisy Bell!
    You'll take the “lead”
    In each “trip” we take,
    Then if I don't do well,
    I will permit you to
    Use the brake,
    My beautiful Daisy Bell!

    mudra wrote:An AI professor explains: three concerns about granting citizenship to robot Sophia

    I was surprised to hear that a robot named Sophia was granted citizenship by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

    The announcement last week followed the Kingdom’s commitment of US$500 billion to build a new city powered by robotics and renewables.

    One of the most honourable concepts for a human being, to be a citizen and all that brings with it, has been given to a machine. As a professor who works daily on making AI and autonomous systems more trustworthy, I don’t believe human society is ready yet for citizen robots.

    To grant a robot citizenship is a declaration of trust in a technology that I believe is not yet trustworthy. It brings social and ethical concerns that we as humans are not yet ready to manage.
    Robot Sophia is officially a citizen of Saudi Arabia.
    Who is Sophia?

    Sophia is a robot developed by the Hong Kong-based company Hanson Robotics. Sophia has a female face that can display emotions. Sophia speaks English. Sophia makes jokes. You could have a reasonably intelligent conversation with Sophia.

    Sophia’s creator is Dr David Hanson, a 2007 PhD graduate from the University of Texas.

    Sophia is reminiscent of “Johnny 5”, the first robot to become a US citizen in the 1986 movie Short Circuit. But Johnny 5 was a mere idea, something dreamt up by comic science fiction writers S. S. Wilson and Brent Maddock.

    Risk to citizenship

    Citizenship – in my opinion, the most honourable status a country grants for its people – is facing an existential risk.

    As a researcher who advocates for designing autonomous systems that are trustworthy, I know the technology is not ready yet.

    We have many challenges that we need to overcome before we can truly trust these systems. For example, we don’t yet have reliable mechanisms to assure us that these intelligent systems will always behave ethically and in accordance with our moral values, or to protect us against them taking a wrong action with catastrophic consequences.

    Here are three reasons I think it is a premature decision to grant Sophia citizenship.

    1. Defining identity

    Citizenship is granted to a unique identity.

    Each of us, humans I mean, possesses a unique signature that distinguishes us from any other human. When we get through customs without talking to a human, our identity is automatically established using an image of our face, iris and fingerprint. My PhD student establishes human identity by analysing humans’ brain waves.

    Read more: We all need to forget, even robots

    What gives Sophia her identity? Her MAC address? A barcode, a unique skin mark, an audio mark in her voice, an electromagnetic signature similar to human brain waves?

    These and other technological identity management protocols are all possible, but they do not establish Sophia’s identity – they can only establish hardware identity. What then is Sophia’s identity?

    To me, identity is a multidimensional construct. It sits at the intersection of who we are biologically, cognitively, and as defined by every experience, culture, and environment we encountered. It’s not clear where Sophia fits in this description.

    2. Legal rights

    For the purposes of this article, let’s assume that Sophia the citizen robot is able to vote. But who is making the decision on voting day – Sophia or the manufacturer?

    Presumably also Sophia the citizen is “liable” to pay income taxes because Sophia has a legal identity independent of its creator, the company.

    Sophia must also have the right for equal protection similar to other citizens by law.

    Consider this hypothetical scenario: a policeman sees Sophia and a woman each being attacked by a person. That policeman can only protect one of them: who should it be? Is it right if the policeman chooses Sophia because Sophia walks on wheels and has no skills for self-defence?

    It's funny that Saudi Arabia now has a new data center called Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology when Saudi Arabia has long been one of the foremost exporter of extreme ideology and terror.

    Islam will play a vital role in the New World Order in fact it is the "false prophet" and the "second beast coming out of the earth" spoken of in the Book of Revelation. And this AI is in Revelation called the "image of the beast" whill will cause to kill all who will not worship it.

    SkyNet or SingularityNet is online and will digitally control and communicate with everything also human beings which means a chip which must be what is called the "mark of the beast" in Revelation.

    As you can see this is all foretold by Jesus so you all got a choice to make within maybe a year... will you be a slave to the New World Order or will you choose God your Maker ?

    Bob Burton 1 day ago wrote: What I find fascinating is how so many people who claim to hate the 'elite' - I agree it is inappropriate, but we know who we mean - are religious. It's mind blowing. Who wrote the books relating to all religions? It wasn't god, that much is guaranteed. Who could read and write back then? Not the masses - again, guaranteed. The' elite' invented religion to control the masses. How can you, if you claim to be awake, not realise that? This is religion in a nutshell. Do exactly as your 'betters' tell you. Pay your taxes to enrich them further. What little you have left, donate to an incredibly rich church that has more money than it knows what to do with. Never rebel against authority. Do not kill - except in religious wars of course. So on and so forth. So, although by following these laws of a god there is no evidence for, your life will be shitty, worry not, because the church that demands this of you guarantees that WHEN YOU DIE you will go to a heaven there is zero evidence of. When you die?!!! PL-ease, do me a favour. Religion is undoubtedly the 'elites' greatest ever achievement. Crown and church were always closely connected for a reason. In fact, back in the day, the eldest son inherited the family fortune whilst the youngest son trotted off to become a high ranking church official, so he could help the crown maintain control. Not much has changed since then.

    Who is the Defender of the Faith in Britain? The fcuking Queen, or King, depending who is in power. All political leaders with real power claim to be religious. Why? You can work that out surely? Did we not just witness Clinton and Comey - two allegedly fine Christians - swear on the Bible to tell the truth, before launching into lie after lie? Clinton now hopes to save her scrawny neck by saying she wants to become a pastor ffs. I could go on forever about hypocrisy in all religions but I'd be dead of old age before I finished. Religion is an 'elite' control mechanism and you cannot seriously claim to be awake whilst swallowing that crap. It's all about the afterlife with religion. The afterlife and its rewards. Do you ever hear of an imam strapping bombs to himself? Surely if he believed that XXXX he would willingly rush into the arms of Allah to claim his virgins, but no, he's busy persuading the gullible to do it for him. Religion and gullible - two words you cannot separate. It's all a lie to keep you in your place and not rebel against the so called elite. As Jordan just pointed out, they've been in control for millennia. It is inevitable that they invented it for that purpose. The uneducated in the dark ages had no education except what priests taught them. They had an excuse. There is no excuse now. Wake the fcuk up.


    Thanks but I won't chose either of those rubbish options.

    Hi Susan, long time no speak - indeed. The short answer is: Nut'n. Sorry verbose mode is off, cos I'm packing and moving on Sunday, so I'm back on the road again shortly, with no-where to go - lol. I've yesterday finished my work contract and I'm a free spirit again, at least for the next month. Free to roam the countries of Europe again, sampling, or more aptly, witnessing the new culture that our recent population additions have brought about. No, I'm not talking about the stabbings, beatings, muggings, acid attacks, harassing people, raping women and children of whatever sex to old grannies for sexual emergencies, Beastiality of dogs til they bleed to death, being groomed for a sex gang, being lectured on the streets by individuals or gangs about smoking/drinking/being under-dressed/covering up hair and such cos this is now a Sharia Zone - no, we have plenty of that in the UK already, so no desire in the slightest to see that elsewhere. Rather, how the Ambiance has, or has not, changed since I was in those places last, cos I may want to move there - not because of that highly polarizing topic of Brexit, though I did not vote for it, however, I do support it. Ok, I've gotta go.. things to do, people to see..... nice to hear from you again.

    Hmm, I studied AI at Uni back in 2001 - I am as disappointed now with it as I was back then. It's still a long way to go, at least in the public sphere. God only knows what they have in black projects somewhere. But I would not worry. You are doing what you are supposed to be doing, in the place that you should be. In this case, a pebble cannot cause a landslide of boulders, so you have no influence - there is no critical mass of pebbles.. So, make the best of what you have and are able. Events will play out on their own. I would worry more about 5G in the short term than AI.
    orthodoxymoron wrote:Thank-you eMonkey. I appreciated your response, and I just realized this is YOUR thread, so I should give you a belated "Welcome Back!!" Perhaps my lengthy comment should be directed to both You and Susan. Regarding Technological-Development and Artificial-Intelligence, I suspect there is "Nothing New Under the Sun." Whoever Genetically-Engineered Humanity must have been highly-technological. I've been speculating regarding the Origin of the Matrix. I suspect the Matrix is Ancient, Universal, and Unalterable. This scares the hell out of me. The REAL History of Life, the Universe, and Everything might drive 99.9% of us completely insane (and I wish I were kidding). We seem to debate Cover-Story v Cover-Story aka Delusion v Delusion. Perhaps 'Disclosure' is NOT a Good-Thing. Who Knows?? Dr. Who??
    To say "It's Too Late!!" at this point would be the "Understatement of the Millennium". I've honestly seen this coming for a very-long time in this incarnation, and probably lifetime after lifetime, somewhere and/or somewhen. My threads on Project Avalon and The Mists of Avalon have referenced "Sinister-Technology" and the "Mean-Queen Theme" for close to ten-years. This Present Quest began on Monday, February 18, 2008. http://krlll.com/ Before that, I had basically given-up, and now I'm wishing I hadn't tried to help. NANUXII, things have been "too quiet" for several-years. I suspect that things have been "artificially-elevated" and will be "mercilessly-deflated" by nefarious-beings in the nether-realms (who might have Sirius-Issues with Humanity, going way, way, way back). 'RA' refused to answer most of my questions regarding all of the above (and more) but I got the message just the same. Oddly, I've recently been thinking in terms of Enki, Enlil, and HAL 9000 (regarding the past 10,000 to 15,000 years). Are You Living in a Computer Simulation? https://www.simulation-argument.com/simulation.html Enki = Amen = Matrix-Creator?? [Ancestor Simulation] = [Investigative Judgment]?? 'The United States of the Solar System (Book 4)' should be extremely revealing to anyone patient enough to endure my tripe for several months of intense study. I know I didn't 'get it right', but I suspect that many who give this thread an honest study will 'get it right' even if I never do. One last time, I've removed all of my internet-posting from all significant-tables (real and imaginary). I intended my tripe for a select alternative-research audience (for educational and entertainment purposes only).

    I am fixated on the hybridization theory of the alien presence - that we are really them - and they are really us. I ironically posted an internet page a few years ago, where I 'claimed' to be a human reincarnation of the alien KRLLL - and that I had gone turncoat - and sided with the human race. I received a very angry response from someone stating that I was claiming 'godship' and that I would be severely punished!! I don't doubt that ancient aliens came to Earth (possibly from Sirius and Aldebaran). We may be some of those aliens. What I am enamored with is the idea of a Lucifer/Shiva/Kali/Anna figure being in charge of Earth - lifetime after lifetime - possibly as a hermaphroditic hybrid goddess of sorts - with complete reincarnational recall, with 100% use of their brain capacity - unlimited access to possibly stolen ancient advanced technology and wisdom - and so on. Could such a hypothetical figure have created most of our mythologies and theologies - secretly ruling over us with deception and force? I'm not questioning that a very real event occurred at Roswell in 1947 - involving real otherworldly technology and beings. But I am considering that the Secret Government is the same one which has been ruling Earth for thousands of years - and controls the megalomaniacs we love to hate. Many years ago a Roman Catholic musician related to me that a priest had asked 'What if God is a black woman?' I now wonder: What if this goes back to the Dogon Tribe or to Ancient Egypt? What if Lucifer aka The God of This World...is a young black woman (with the soul of an alien from Sirius)...The Prince of Sirius and The Prince of This World? What if Lucifer is a gorgeous Sex Goddess? Now I've really gone off the deep-end...right? I'm crazy...but I mean no harm. I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it! And I just love nuts on dates!

    Monday, February 18, 2008

    I am known to humans as KRLLL. I am known to humans as an alien. I have been living on Planet Earth since the middle of the twentieth century. My planet of origin is located in the Pleiades. It is known as Pleon. I bring peace and wisdom. There is another alien force on Planet Earth who is your master. This alien force is not your friend, and yet you obey. I bring liberation, and yet you do not listen. Time is running out. Change course or forever face enslavement.

    Here is something for you to consider:

    1. Evolution of Everything (Physical & Spiritual).

    2. Genetic Engineering & Rule by Good Aliens/Spirits (God) in the Garden of Eden (Ancient Earth). General Peace & Harmony.

    3. Attack/Deception/War of Evil Aliens/Spirits against the Good Aliens/Spirits/Humans. The Good Aliens/Spirits are driven from the Garden of Eden (Ancient Earth). Humanity made a mistake of Biblical proportions. Genesis reads a bit differently, doesn't it? But what makes more sense? The Reptillian Devil was in charge, which is why Genesis reads the way it does!

    4. Genetic Engineering & Rule by Evil Aliens/Spirits with Humans fighting with each other. Ancient religion emerges (Summarian, Egyptian, etc. - created by Evil Aliens/Spirits to control Humans).

    5. Moses & Others rebel against the Evil Aliens/Spirits/Religions with the help of Good Aliens/Spirits. The Bible (Old Testament) is a mixture of Good & Evil. One has to carefully read between the lines to figure out what is really going on. The truth had to be disguised. Some activity atributed to God is really evil and of Satanic origin. Atrocities and sacrifices are examples.

    6. Jesus intensifies the rebellion and establishes a condensed, non-corrupt version of the Old Testament religion promoted by Moses and Others. The Teachings of Jesus are generally ignored by the Christian Church for 2,000 years. Thus, the Evil Aliens/Spirits/Religions retain their control of Planet Earth.

    7. People finally do what Jesus said to do (they haven't so far), and the Battle of Armageddon results. Good Aliens/Spirits/People battle Evil Aliens/Spirits/People for control of Planet Earth.

    8. The Evil Aliens/Spirits/People are driven from Planet Earth and onto Nibiru, which becomes the Devil's Island Prison Planet of the Universe. The Good Aliens/Spirits/People gain total control of Planet Earth. This is the Garden of Eden regained, and what is known as Heaven or Paradise.

    Proceed wisely.

    Here is the response I received on April 7, 2008:

    "You know this isn't funny! The Lord God will judge you for claiming God ship. Just because God showed you a little bit of His secrets you think you know everything. He will NOT have mercy on you!"


    The Bible, Ellen White, and Church History might not be as neat and clean as we might wish them to be. They often seem to "mock the longings of the sin-sick soul." Adventism (and all religious-organizations) desire solutions to their problems, and much more, but the real story of Earth and Humanity might be more difficult to deal with than even the best and brightest in Ivy-League Universities are capable of properly researching. Adventism's solutions seem to reside in carefully picking and choosing. But really, Pluralistic-Education and Making-Money often seem to be much more important than Honest and Thorough Biblical-Research in the Context of Life, the Universe, and Everything. I've come very close to reading Volume Four (Isaiah to Malachi) of the SDA Bible Commentary, straight-through, over and over, year after year, just to see where this leads. BTW, what is the definitive Intertestamental Old-Testament Commentary?? Why isn't the New-Testament essentially an Old-Testament Commentary?? Should the Five-Solae somehow apply to the New-Testament?? Many have found Peale appalling and Paul appealing, and Luther didn't think Hebrews, James, Jude, and Revelation should've been included in the Canonical-Scriptures. Over the last few years, I've become painfully aware of severe criticism of the Pauline-Epistles (genuine and otherwise). I've attempted to remain responsibly-neutral, but just for conversations-sake, if we remove the 13 letters attributed to Paul, and the 4 books Luther didn't approve of, we are left with 10 NT books. Modern scholars have raised serious issues regarding the Historicity of the first five NT books, so perhaps they should go too!! This would leave us with five short apostolic letters!! Upon This Rock?? Consider the following Minimal-List: Genesis, Deuteronomy, Psalms, Proverbs, Isaiah, Daniel, Luke, Acts, 1&2 Corinthians, Hebrews, James, John, and Revelation. Upon THIS Rock??

    I know someone who was a young boy when the first Russian satellite was launched into orbit. At Christmastime, his church school teacher asked, "the wise-men looked up, and what did they see?" The little boy quickly answered, "Sputnik!"

    When the first manned Russian spacecraft reached orbit, the cosmonaut said that he didn't see God...

    I once witnessed the re-entry of a Russian spacecraft! In at least half a dozen pieces! All brilliantly burning as they streaked across the night sky! An intoxicated man next to me thought he was hallucinating, and was relieved when I saw it too!

    Fast forward to February 1, 2003. I was working a night job, and at around 4:00 a.m. I told a fellow worker about the spacecraft incident. I hadn't talked about it for a long, long time. Then, minutes later, I heard the tragic news about the disintegration of the space shuttle Columbia. Probably just a coincidence, but I put the two events together in my mind, and it made a deep impression on me. While I was telling the story of the fiery spacecraft re-entry, the 7 Columbia astronauts had only minutes to live, and no one knew what was going to happen...no human anyway...

    Evelyn Husband, wife of mission commander, Col. Rick Husband, tells in the book High Calling of Rick's last written message:

    "Prior to launch, each astronaut fills out papers containing information for the Astronaut Office to keep on file in event of an accident. On the last page of this packet, titled 'Special instructions for Funeral Services,' there is a section called 'Other Special Instructions.' In this section Rick wrote, 'Tell'em About Jesus! - That He is real to me.' That's what Rick wrote down in case something happened. He wanted people to know about Jesus and His love. Rick's request has now become my life's mission statement, and I communicate that every chance I get."

    Regarding the Stargate video of Ra in the first post...I received this response:

    'Y'all love fantisizing over my ancestral decorations, places, spirituality that you don't get, the greatness you won't achieve, and the melanin you'll never have. This depiction of my ancestors is pathetic. Y'all always make them look just as degenerative and recessive as you. Anyway, play and have fun as much as you still can. Yes you are running out of time, and to be honest, there is absolutly nothing you can do about it. I have no mercy, you lie and mock and blasphem all the way to hell.'

    On another website...I received this message:

    'You know this isn't funny! The Lord God will judge you for claiming God ship. Just because God showed you a little bit of His secrets you think you know everything. He will NOT have mercy on you!'

    I once heard a mocking, sing-song, high-pitched feminine sounding voice...emanating from a usually deep and masculine voiced televangelist...directed toward me...in public...almost shouting 'That was gooooooood!!!!'...in reaction to a polite, well intentioned, and well reasoned comment by me.

    This was a short unedited internet exchange I had some time ago:

    ME: What if the aliens who have been here for thousands of years are the 'bad-guys'? What if we will need the help of good aliens from elsewhere to get rid of the demonic aliens who are already here? Could this be viewed as a hostile alien attack? I really don't know. I am just speculating.

    THEM: Try not to think in terms of good or bad. Understand this is not your planet. Then, understand nothing can be done to you that you don't do to yourself. Know that there are quadrillions of planets and they don't have a massive climate change every 26,000 years and violent deranged people like yourselves. Why on Earth would any race want to live here with you knowingly? The most intelligent life on the planet is not human.

    ME: I'll try not to think of the Iraq War in terms of good or bad. I'll try to be morally ambiguous. I might even become CIA or a CEO. Hey, maybe violent and deranged is neither good nor bad...but thinking makes it so. The aliens who are here need us to not get our acts together. If that happens...they'll probably have to live on Nibiru...or worse. Sorry for being a smart-XXX. Wait...I'm not sorry...it's neither good nor bad. I couldn't resist. I mean well. Really.

    THEM: And your point was?...............

    ME: Who owns earth? Where do humans belong? What is the most intelligent life on earth? If they are so smart, and earth is so bad...why are they here? I may be deranged...but I'm not violent. You sound as though you are not human...are you an alien? If so...what kind...and from where? My point was that ethics are supremely important. I don't hurt, kill, terrorize, or abduct people...but some aliens apparently do (as do some humans). They should stop.

    THEM II: Don't we like...create our own world? We're destroying our own world because our society isn't healthy.

    ME: Our planet is how we plan it. Perhaps we need to fire some people in the planning department. You're right...society is sick...mentally ill. Perhaps our world is the Devil's Island Insane Asylum of the Universe. But it seems that some of the inmates are getting well...and helping other inmates to get well. Jail Break! Jail Break! Free at Last! Free at Last!

    No further comments in this exchange. My questions went unanswered. The silence was deafening.


    That 'Daisy' parody-reply is attributable to Dinah Shore (or is it 'Human-Error'?). http://www.exelana.com/lyrics/DaisyBell.html Anyway, it's not my invention, but I wish it were. Notice the use of the name 'Michael'?? Remember that Dinah Shore interviewed John Denver in 'Oh, God!'?? Is the non-existence of www.themistsofavalon a coincidental setback?? My website www.redletterchurch.net was removed from my ownership (despite being paid-up), and the web-address was subsequently removed from the internet (at least 7 or 8 years ago). I was afraid to investigate. I see that the .org version (which I never had anything to do with) has been suspended. In the original 'Stargate' movie, RA said "I Created Your Civilization, and Now I Will Destroy It!!" I've tried to discover legitimate Biblical-Detours around the usual Hal Lindsey 'Great Late Planet Earth' mumbo-jumbo, but this exercise in futility seems to have been completely-ignored. I never claimed (in this life) to have the 'Answer'. I simply attempted to stimulate thinking and discussion, but that didn't fracking happen. I think I'm going to go watch 'I, Tonya' to try to get my head together. I spent the past week driving a $50,000 SUV (which I rented) and that didn't remedy my sad state of mind. An 'Agent-Type' told me story after story after story (in a theatrical-manner) as I waited for a train at 4:00 AM!! He reminded me of Lynn Cassidy in 'Men Who Stare at Goats'!! What Would Kerry Lynn Cassidy Say?? What Would Dr. Edwin Krupp Do??

    Here is another internet encounter which I found to be very interesting:

    Veronica: Mad humans always existed, just don’t blame their actions (if existed) to the Reptilians. Is too easy to say people are been led by other species evils than admit that there are humans nuts by themselves. Reptilians are good, they only approach a human when they fall in love, and to do good to the beloved person. Satan is a word that means "attorney" in the original language. It is not an individual, the word can apply to many alien lawyer that have nothing to do with humans.

    Orthodoxymoron: Is the Old Testament God really Satan...a Reptilian. Could the "attorney" definition have something to do with the legalism seen in the Old Testament? We humans are pretty disgusting in our own right...but I suspect that evil spirits and evil aliens make things a lot worse. Who is responsible for abductions, mutilations, etc? And what about the frightful appearance of alleged Reptilians. I'm not anti-alien...just anti-evil.

    Veronica: Thanks for commenting on my post, and for the opportunity of bringing up this subject. The Old Testament Satan came from a species called Man of Tri. He was a good guy, having a beautiful personal trajectory of defending social rights on his planet, extremely intelligent, only bright and right lawyers are chosen to be a Satan. At the time he arrived on Earth, unfortunately, he had become insane, and he did a lot of harm, but it was because he was ill. His species lives 8.000 to 10.000 years of Earth, and he stayed much of this time here, doing harm. As there was few personnel from other species working here, few angels and lots of work to do in those days, nobody caught him. I am not aware if Eden destituted him while he was alive, but he did not act as a Satan here, though he had the Satan seal because he was a nominated Satan ( by Eden High Council). He acted as an insane man, because he was maddened by an illness. See, there is Good and Bad, and there is Evil. Good and Bad are complementary in a context. Evil is out of place. This is because the source of Evil is an illness. It is a virus. We call it virus of Tri because was first detected there. This virus attacks a small percentage of most populations. All species are united to find the cure, all species have problems with maddened guys, and, as humans, in all species most individuals are good guys living by common sense and good social rules.

    Orthodoxymoron: Your website is very interesting. I'm wondering if you have heard of, seen or read a book titled 'The Great Controversy' by Ellen G. White? If so, what is your opinion? What is your opinion regarding the Teachings of Jesus? What is your opinion regarding the U.S. Constitution? What can you tell me about the New World Order? Is it really the Old Alien Order? Who was ultimately responsible for 9/11? Satan as a mentally-ill attorney is a fascinating possibility...

    Veronica: I will bring the answers here later, just stopped quickly now to thank you. The FAQ is stuck for lack of questions and you really do good ones. I don’t speak alone, I am supported by Lucifer embassy and by Eden. I got a long message from a Messenger Angel about these, it will take a while to translate, but I will let you know. Basically, about the book of Ellen White as well as the Teaching of Jesus, the message focus on the fact that we are the ones making the history now, there is no need to focus on history to know anything important. Each happening of history is fit for the time it happened. Constitution, summary: the real law is the law of Nature, not clearly understood yet, and the value of the C. relies on its closeness to the natural laws, not imposing limits to it. The C. is to assure freedom, but the freedom only exists when there is no need of law, be to limit, be to let free, other than the nature. As an overview, the U.S. Constitution is advanced, but not finished. Nature allow development and technology, as it works for the Aliens. What changes is the concept about life. New World Order never existed. If humans made their organizations, they were never powerful to threaten the entire world. Never existed an Alien Order, they are ordinary civilizations, with teachers and accountants and social philosophies, living well and satisfied, solving their problems as everyone else. I know it is hard to believe after all this negative marketing, but they are just here doing routine. About 9/11 the answer of the Angels is: All that participated of 9/11 are already dead.

    I will put the answers here if you don’t mind, not to overload the comments on the video. You are welcome. The old testament is genuine, it was transmitted by Eden, and the prophets translated the best they could, but the angel’s language is not a piece of cake, and there are many misinterpretations, specially after translated to other languages and analyzed. People have the right to know how things are. I am a fallen angel, you probably heard that we born in human form. We have being trying to tell these things for many millennia, but the kings always kill us and burn our books. But this time there is Internet. I am telling this things on You Tube because I am still not sure if the powers of human will not try to burn the books again, if we start to speak to many people at once. Though the world is more civilized now. When you feel comfortable you can visit my blog, there is many more there about the Creation. There is also a book for download, it is a poem done by me with the angel Ariel, that is my brother. It was done to heal the heart, when people sometimes feel tired of the harshness of life. All material there is free and Creative Commons, we don’t want anything from anyone. We speak because it takes us closer of home. Have a great week.

    About spirits: The spirits disturb, really. The fact is that spirits must remain sleeping, and when they are awake they do disturbance. What is important to understand is that never had, and there is not yet, personal enough to suffice the demand of work in Earth. The grays are the responsible to collect the lost spirits, this is part of their job and they are paid to do it and do well, but they are few with few equipment compared to the quantity of ghosts. If someone feel that is being disturbed, he must ask to the gray of his area to chase that specific ghost and the problem will be solved. They usually focus to sane the problems where more humans are being affected. To call the gray just make the request near one of their communication devices. These communicators are discretely placed where the community gathers to discuss the problems, such as churches or community centers, and by what they hear on these places they know where to act to solve the problems affecting more people at once. If someone speak to them directly pointing the problems, they can act more effectively.

    Mutilations: Aliens never mutilate. Not even the criminals. Simply because third dimensional material has no use for anyone but to those who live in it. Most aliens can jump from 3rd to 4th dimension, but their feeding and living is done in the 4th. The 3rd is just for work, tourism or study. For any alien species the bodies of the 3rd D are troublesome to deal with directly, and is pointless. The cattle mutilations are done by rats, birds and small animals. There is plenty of analysis of these supposedly mutilated by abduction corpses, and most of them point to very understandable causes, though there might be something bizarre on nature that we cannot understand. If you wish to research deeper, there is a complete article done by a Brazilian magazine called UFO with legists doctors examining many of these cattle. All of them concluded the mutilations were done by rats, that choose the soft parts to eat first – eyes, nose, mouth, ears, reproductive parts, and from these to inside. The opening made by the small creatures who live from corpses are generally perfect and round, and they eat first from inside, it is easy to see at an apple eaten by worms. From outside it can looks good, and the small hole is perfectly round.

    Real abductions: The Grays are the “nanny” of human species, as the human species of Gaia is young and still entitled do receive special care. Is the grays duty to assure that all human on the group under their care gets food, shelter and sanitary conditions ( not richness, it is only about the health). So, they ionize the air to kill bacteria, influence for resources to reach hospitals, researchers and sanitary organizations. The abductions occur when a special human individual gets ill, the “special” relies on fact that the person is a hub for the distribution of resources to many others humans. If that person gets ill many will be without resources and will be consequently ill too, so the grays operate this hub person so he can keep up as a resources distributor for that area. It is expensive for the grays, done rarely. But as humans start to communicate directly with the grays they might even buy this operations perhaps, paying by sending resources to other humans in need from that gray group. They do these exchanges with some sensitive’s, sometimes.

    Reptilian appearances: The Reptilians are moved by the heart. They fall in love with humans more frequently than you can imagine, then they try to approach the person and everyone gets scared. They are an old, old species, with all existential problems solved, so they live in search of love and adventure. They are scary, of rude gestures, and cannot communicate well with humans, so the misunderstandings and confusions they cause are huge, but there is always an impulsive Reptilian in love behind, usually he does not succeed in his affair, sometimes do. They can fall in love with a person, with a population, with a politic system, with a project being made, by an object or place. It has nothing to do with the “take the world” theories, even because they don’t have to take, the Earth belong to them, and the Angels protect Earth because of them ,as they don’t fit anywhere else, while humanoids can be taken to other places. They are rough in the outside, and most sweet on the inside. Here is their place, the humans just need to learn to understand them, and I am sure will be great for all. They love to have other species living here, when a civilizations ends they long for the next.

    I hope this information has a use for you. It is not something I read or heard, the source are the own Alien representatives. I took the task to clarify the misconceptions on the media on my group, and the intention is only to inform our point of view. I chose to speak person to person, with those who are interested on the issue, as being half-human myself.

    Veronica: Hello friend, You Tube is making me tired. It is like a rally road and I don’t like it, I am a girl. Here are most boys trying to combat, not to fix on the subject. For discussion, only you were interesting. Keep my e-mail if you wish. You are welcome to discuss anytime.

    Orthodoxymoron: Thank-you for your answers and comments. I hope that the internet and You Tube will help people to learn how to communicate more effectively and nicely. I hope things turn out well for everyone...humans, aliens, everyone. I even hope that Satan can learn to be happy without being mean and causing trouble. I don't want anyone to be miserable. Life should be enjoyed. I hope this universe can get past war. We should compete constructively...not destructively. Peace to you.


    Regarding the Three Ladies in the images at the top and bottom of this post, consider Job and His Three Daughters (lifetime after lifetime). Also, notice Michael and Chad in the top and bottom images. Job = Michael = Amen = Chad. There's probably nothing to what I just mentioned, yet consider the basic concept from ALL Angles. My Threads Are 'Fishing-Expeditions'. I Know I Don't Know (and it frustrates the hell out of me).

    I never know who supports and opposes the overall editorial-content of The Mists. The restoration should restore the numbers of viewers of this site, but I'm still a bit concerned about why www.themistsofavalon.net stopped working in the first place. Was this simply a technical glitch, or was this site censored?? Will the participants be ultimately rewarded or punished for their efforts?? I've been kept in the dark about what the real PTB (and not just the front-personnel) desire for Earth and Humanity (or more-importantly what they want for the Whole-Universe). I've been reduced to placing multiple concepts in conflict with each-other, rather than mounting a particular editorial-horse, and riding it to death (even though it often seems as if I am). In fact, it often seems as if I'm attempting ride a Dead-Horse, judging from the interest (or lack thereof). We seem to be increasingly at the mercy of technology, and I even wonder if some websites and/or participants are partially alien and/or artificial-intelligence?! Am I merely paranoid, or are they really out to get some of us?? Have they already gotten some of us?? Should I embrace or resist the perceived technological-takeover?? Did this phenomenon exponentially-accelerate with 9/11?? I wonder as I wander. As strange and illogical as it might seem, the last ten-years of internet-posting reminds me of the ten-minute crash-scene from the 2012 movie 'Flight' with Denzel Washington. The epic war between Truth and Lies reminds me of the hearing-scene from 'Flight'. "God Help Me." What Would Denzel Say and Do?? What Would Michael Garibaldi Say and Do?? BTW -- I recently encountered a man who reminded me of the High-Class Drug-Dealer in 'Flight'. I was just about to ask if he were an actor, when he said "The Kids Eat This Like Crack!!" That 'cracked me up' but I didn't say anything. Perhaps I should've. What Would John Goodman Say??

    It might be fun to take one of those huge 27" Dobsonian telescopes to the shore of the ocean, and record the movement of a ship, with the telescope and onboard GPS (or some other method of accurately measuring distance), as far away as possible, and do the math for Earth-Curvature. BTW, without looking it up, don't some researchers claim that Ancient-Earth was involved in some sort of a HUGE Impact with another planet?? What if we live on (or inside-of) a fragment of that impact, with matrix-tricks and trick-photography creating a false-reality??!! What if "We All Live in a Yellow Submarine"??!! 'RA' told me that the real-truth about life, the universe, and everything, would drive 87% of us insane. I think I'm 87% insane, and I know that I don't know. An 'Individual of Interest' told me that the "Solar System is a Lie" (or something to that effect). Flat-Earth v Globe-Earth might be related to the Matrix-Debate might be related to Artificial-Intelligence might be related to Supercomputer-Management. This thing could get REALLY Creepy. Researchers Beware. The markets, economies, debates, and disclosures seem to be at critical-levels, so one might wish to be prepared for just about anything (more than usual). Perhaps one should stay out of the Info-War. I think I might simply review 1998 to 2018, and not attempt to follow breaking-news. Don't expect anything from me. I might not even write a book, but if I do, expect it to be quite-benign, with a pseudonym, and possibly ghost-written. I know I can't write in novel-form. My threads are probably more interesting than any book I might write, and no-one seems to be the least-bit interested in my tripe, so why try?? The End Might Be Near (again). As things get crazier, I'm inclined to go low-tech in nature, and mostly abandon the Info-War (for better or worse, I know not). Notice that I changed my avatar, and eliminated my signature, which might be a statement and a farewell.

    Listen to Art Bell interviewing Blanche Barton (of the Church of Satan). There was a particularly interesting caller toward the end of the show. What if Blanche Barton (B.B.) = Sherry Shriner (S.S.) = Eve aka Lilith aka Lucifer?? What Would Raven Say?? Raven said I needed to "grow a pair" and Blanche used the same term in the interview. What if a Coven of Witches have Managed Humanity for Thousands of Years?? What Would Professor Augusto Monti (Mario Scaccia) and his daughter Angela say (in the 1978 miniseries 'The Word')?? I'm feeling and acting more and more like Professor Monti (dealing with Protective-Daughters and Forbidden-Knowledge). Monti went insane, and the daughters didn't seem innocent. What Would Job's Daughters Say?? Scaccia was also in the Italian movie 'The Antichrist'. What Would Carol, Mudra, Pris, Brook, Susan, Aquaries1111, and B.B. Baghor Say?? What Would Sherry, Dana, and TREEE Say?? What Would Groot Do?? What if Groot is the Root of All Evil?? Now I go back to being silent and contrite. It's easier that way, but sometimes the 'easy-way' isn't the 'easy-way'. Speaking of NOT taking the 'easy-way' consider contrasting the following four biblical-groups: 1. Genesis through Deuteronomy. 2. Joshua through Malachi. 3. Matthew through Acts. 4. Romans through Revelation. What does each group tell us about the other three groups?? Be relentlessly thorough and honest. Evangelists tend to talk loud and fast, jumping-around and acting-angry. Honest and Thorough Biblical, Historical, and Alternative Research is NOT an Easy-Way. Consider reading Volumes 3 to 6 of the SDA Bible Commentary (1 Chronicles to Ephesians) while listening to the Music of Bach and Buxtehude. The Jesuits know what I'm talking about, but they've taken at least one creepy-oath, and are way too-deep into the nasty hidden-stuff, so don't expect any glowing endorsements. 'RA' told me 'The Jesuits Don't Like You' and 'The Inhabitants of Phobos Like You'. I'd appreciate it if a Death-Bed Jesuit (and a Phobos-Martian) posted some Salvific-Revelations on my little thread. Perhaps They Already Have. Research with Responsibility. Namaste and Godspeed.

    There are some really crazy conspiracy theories out there! There are also some really crazy little green-men theories out there! The theories are out there! Follow the tin-foil hats! The following is a vast no-wing conspiracy theory…and does not reflect the even crazier conspiracy theories of the author…

    Was Jesus an extraterrestrial? He came down from Heaven, didn't He? Is this true for all of us? When He ascended into Heaven…was He beamed up into the Father-Ship…into the Most Holy Place of a Heavenly Sanctuary? Do you believe in UFO's? Have you ever seen one? I have, and I have spoken with other people who have. They seemed to be very credible. I met an astronaut who walked on the moon. We talked about life after death…of all things! It was out of this body…I mean out of this world! Some people don't believe in God. They believe in extraterrestrials from outer-space! Are God and Satan ET‘s? What if Satan is a little green woman? If we made contact, would it be a close encounter of the worst kind?

    If a UFO shows up...how do you know if it's good or evil? Are there good and evil ET's? Did aliens supervise the construction of the Pyramids in ancient Egypt? Are we prisoners or slaves of aliens? Were Moses and Jesus…rebel Pharaohs...determined to set us free? Did Moses have a long term plan of salvation from alien oppression…which included writing the Torah and the Teachings of Jesus? Is the God of the Old Testament a bad ET…and the God of the New Testament a good ET?

    Did the Nazis build and fly UFO's? Did U.S. scientists help Nazi scientists build UFO's at Area 51? Do humans travel to other planets in UFO’s? Do Presidents make treaties with, and take orders from…aliens? Do we have joint alien-human bases on the moon…dating back to the 50‘s? Are nuclear weapons intended for aliens rather than humans? Did a future President order a limo driver to shoot a President with a pellet gun to keep him from revealing our involvement with aliens? Did a future President refuse the request of a President for classified information regarding the extent of our involvement with aliens? Did ET phone Rome…and then call 911? Were hijackings superimposed onto military exercises…and then the whole operation hijacked by someone or something else? Don't ask me...this is an alien subject and I'm not a rocket scientist or a ufologist! I’m not even a botanist or a herpetologist! I’m just living in my own little…Dreamland…  

    This subject is a real minefield and crop-circle field, and frankly I don't know much about UFO‘s and ET‘s. I'm not sure I want to know too much! If I knew too much...black helicopters would undoubtedly appear over my house! Men in Black would knock on my door!  I’m already more nervous than Don Knotts! I’m already paranoid…but then they really would be out to get me! I once spoke with a UFO researcher who said privately that she sometimes wished that she had never researched UFO's! Researchers beware! Stay out of space! Especially the Moon and Mars! I spoke with a very beautiful woman who was instructed by Warner Von Braun to devote her life to keeping nuclear weapons out of space. I’m standing there talking to a gorgeous woman about nuclear war? What a dork I was! Are we involved in real Star Wars? The Empire might strike back! Perhaps we could convince the Empire to strike Bach…instead of that silly five-note tune! Perhaps they have come to save us _____________________________________________

    Regarding Psalms and Isaiah, when these two books are read straight-through, over and over, one could pretend that Psalms is a response to Isaiah. Isaiah seems to present an 'Angry and Offended God' while Psalms seems to present the 'Response to an Angry and Offended God'. What if a 2028 'Book of Common Prayer' consisted of the Psalms integrated into Isaiah in Responsive-Reading or Responsive-Singing Form?? But what do Isaiah and Psalms present regarding Ethics, Law, Sin, Original-Sin, the Sacrificial-System, Messianic-Prophecy, the Substitutionary-Atonement, and Eschatological-Salvation?? Do you see what I mean?? It might be necessary to read Isaiah and Psalms straight-through, over and over, in several translations and paraphrases, for several years, to see what I think I mean. I honestly don't know what might emerge. This might be a bigger can of worms than anyone can imagine, so I'm suggesting that agents and scholars do this sort of thing. They get paid to do this sort of thing, while We the Peons get placed on lists for doing this sort of thing. If one is 'Official' they can 'Get Away with Murder' but 'We the Peons' are simply 'Minions of the Elite' (or so it seems at the Bottom of the Pyramid). Interesting World. But what if the Matrix is a Supercomputer-Moderated Direct-Democracy with a Matrix-Mediatrix as Queen of Heaven and God of This World?? What if the Matrix-Creator is subject to their own Matrix (especially when within the Matrix while performing System-Tests)?? What if Humanity Deposed the Matrix-Mediatrix and Bypassed the Matrix-Creator but Discovered (to their horror) that the Matrix could NOT be Deposed or Bypassed??!! Do you see why I'm becoming more and more like Augusto Monti in the 1978 series 'The Word'??

    http://projectavalon.net/forum/showthread.php?t=18900&page=62 Here is a link to the next to the last page of that Thuban Q & A, wherein I made 5 posts, 4 of which were in conversation with abraxasinas. The 5th post (#1544) was made a couple of days later (on March 6, 2010) shortly after my first UFO sighting (which seemed to be a battle). Please read each of the posts on that page. I seemed to be having a productive interaction with abraxasinas, with the 3rd of my posts being responded to on March 4, 2010 at 5:36 PM. A few minutes later (at 5:59 PM) I made another post to abraxasinas (which was never responded to on that thread). The UFO battle seemed to involve directed-energy weapons. The directed-energy attack on Morpheus apparently occurred the next day (on March 7, 2010). Questions for Morpheus: Were you in a spaceship when that attack occurred?? What is your relationship (if any) to RA, Anchor, Anubis, and Abraxasinas?? Sorry if this is too direct, but as I feel worse and worse, thinking less and less, I sense that I might not have much time to clarify some of the mysteries which seem to get lost in the shuffle (or something to that effect). Susan seemed to understand what had happened around that time, but was not specific regarding what really occurred. Notice that one member is complaining about not being able to PM abraxasinas (#1528). There was some sort of a live-chat when PA shut-down, and it was really fast and chaotic, and someone seemed to make a connection between Anchor and Anubis.  

    I keep wondering if ALL the Alien-Stuff (including the Dragons) is somehow some aspect of US (either anciently brought here or manufactured in some ultra-secret laboratory)?? In other words, is this Solar-System a Closed-System (quarantined perhaps)?? That 4th post of mine (#1541) haunts me every day. Did I screw-up?? I had yet to converse face to face with 'RA' (which came a few months later) and I was simply on a fishing-expedition as a completely-ignorant fool. I was simply attempting to help make things better for all-concerned. It has been suggested to me that I did something wrong, which is impossible to reverse. If I had some ancient-significance, but was deposed and exiled, with my memories wiped-clean, could making bold-statements in modernity still carry some weight in the universe, despite being in a pathetic-state of ignorance and weakness?? Is there some sort of equivalence between Asmodeus, KRLLL, Enki, Michael, Jupiter Jones, the Lamb Slain from the Foundation of the World, and the Gnome in George Zebrowski's 'Heathen God'?? Try combining the contexts of Rennes le Chateau (regarding Asmodeus) and the Island-Abbey in the series 'Helix' (regarding Michael) and the Gnome's Prison Planet in the 'Heathen God' (regarding the Human (G)nome Project).

    #1541 abraxasinas...don't take the following rant personally. I'm not sure where the proper balance point is in all of this. I'm seeking a rock-solid foundation. I do not wish to build on sinking sand...but there will obviously be many false-starts and misunderstandings as I try to find my way...and my voice. I'm tempted to attempt writing about the United States of the Solar System http://projectavalon.net/forum/showt...ymoron+threads with a writing style similar to yours abraxasinas. I realize that I can't come close to accomplishing such a feat...but I can try...can't I? This is new territory for me. I'm ashamed that I don't know more about that which I am espousing...but I'm even more ashamed that very few of us seem to give a rat's patootie about how this Solar System is run.

    Have our negotiators been duped over and over again...by essentially demonic entities? I wonder. The 1954 Greada Treaty (if it really exists) was a mistake...wasn't it? But I'm sure we had TOP people...who were on top of everything...and had everything under control...RIGHT? Just like we have TOP people...who have everything under control...at this very moment...RIGHT? Don't get me wrong...I am an overly accomodating and gullible person. I'm the kind of person who hates to swat a fly. I don't wish to harm anyone or anything...even demonic entities. But I don't want various aliens, spirits, whoever, or whatever...enslaving and exterminating us...or making life miserable for all of us. I think we have been lied to and manipulated for thousands (or even millions) of years by various entities and beings. We're not as smart as we think we are...when it comes to dealing with these entities and beings. Again...I wish them no harm. But perhaps my 'where there's life...there's hope' bias is what has gotten us into a lot of trouble for a long, long time. Somehow...we need to deal with this thing here and now...and not let it drag on (dragon -get it?!) for thousands and millions of years into the future. We are kept in the dark about Universal History...and regarding who we really are. Yet...we then get chided for being the 'New Kids on the Block' who need to evolve so we can join all of the superior beings throughout the Universe. I'm sick of this BS. Throughout history...right up to this very day...I am not seeing a reasonable and rational approach to Solar System Governance. I'm seeing 'Divide and Conquer'...'Keep Them Confused and Fighting With Each Other'...and 'Keep Them Ignorant and Stupid'. I'm as mad as hell. I've had enough. And I'm not going to take this anymore. Can you feel the love tonight?

    The eschatological paradigms are mostly negative and violent. I envision continuity in perpetuity in Sol. I'm not moving away from this Solar System. This is my home. Sun. Fun. Stay. Play. This is my sand-box...and the playground attendants are poised to expel the bullies from our little paradise. This Solar System is the Theater of the Universe. The implications and ramifications of Namaste Constitutional Responsible Freedom...in the context of the Constitution of the United States of America and the Bill of Rights...in the context of the United Nations...and applied to the entire Solar System...are enormous. I stand in opposition to the corrupt Powers That Be...both Terrestrial and Extraterrestrial...and demand that the United States of the Solar System be implemented with all deliberate speed...and that a Solar System Exorcism commence immediately. In the words of Moses "Let My People Go!" I perceive that We the People of Earth are Prisoners of War...on a Prison Planet...with Grey Guards...and a Reptilian/Human Hybrid Warden...Taking Orders From a Draconian Reptilian God of This World. This is an intolerable state of affairs...and must not be allowed to stand. I hereby request that the non-corrupt Beings of the Universe assist We the People of Earth for a very brief period of time...as we know it...to implement the reforms outlined throughout this thread devoted to the United States of the Solar System. Thanks and Gratitude in Advance. http://projectavalon.net/forum/showthread.php?t=15878

    I completely and vehemently reject the following Thuban quotation found in ANNO DOMINI DRAGONIA UNO: INTRODUCTION TO DRAGONHOOD http://projectavalon.net/forum/showt...t=18900&page=3 (This book is written in the Dragonian language and requires familiarity and intitiation into the structural forms or the forked tongue of Its bifurcation of Unicornian grammar and omniscientific terminology.) "It is however the great destiny of the humanoids to aspire to Dragonhood, because of their immense emotional energy potential and mental aspirations. The reunification of our Father with our Mother allows our Masterdragons, Who are as One in 26 dimensions to femtotechnically Seed the Omniverse as THEMSELVES and then reproduce THEMSELVES as Universes. Every such universe is a Monosong and a 26-dimensional dyad of a FatherMother. This is our Creative Destiny and the destiny for all dragonised humans aka the starhumans."

    THIS IS NOT THE DESTINY OF WE THE PEOPLE OF EARTH. BETTER DEAD THAN REP. OUR DESTINY IS RESPONSIBLE FREEDOM AS A SOVEREIGN HUMANITY.


    #1544 OK...what's going on here? I made a slightly shrill (though well intentioned and polite) post a couple of days ago...and abraxasinas has not responded or posted since then. Now...just a few minutes ago...I think I saw my first UFO's in an area where someone had noticed increased military helicopter activity. I saw a slowly moving pinpoint of light suddenly become very bright...and disappear. It didn't look like a meteor at all. Then I saw several faint pinpoints of light...moving erratically in a manner which no conventional fighter jet could match. I thought I saw a couple of faint flashes in this same area of the sky. UFO dogfight? Sometimes ignorance is bliss.

    Jay Arae Essex, I think passed away on June 2 of this year. I haven't seen anything official as to that but someone posted up a video, short one which gave me the impression that he has passed. Nothing has been posted since. Keep in mind that he had made over 600 videos, over the years.  

    I discovered Jay about 1.5 years ago. Maybe a little more than that. Back then so much was happening here, and I didn't sleep well because of what Brook was going through. Jay's videos kept me sane. We never met. I also debated on sending him an email but he was already overloaded with emails and had asked for the many not to send emails because he was already extended. I find it very difficult to make contact with a lot of these folks.

    Jay's place is probably about 5 hours from my location and my heart wanted to visit him and Diana, but I have had a full plate. I will say that we had things in common. I could relate to his work. Especially with the Crystal and Mineral Kingdoms. He was most certainly STO. He and Diana reminded me of what Brook and I were doing.

    The one thing that I have noticed over the years is that when you get to a certain level, the Darkside, will attack you. I lost count as to all the attacks, for the many that I have known. It would also seem that these forum boards are also targeted. In such a way that the admins can't do anything about it. PA is notorious for this type of thing even today. But they are not the only one as I have been dealing with this sort of thing long before I arrived at PA.

    Another thing I also noticed is that when you start to exercise your potential, get attacked, your health issues become chronic. Like a full-on compression of your space. Chronic fatigue, pain, etc. It becomes more challenging to do the spiritual do. Even if you do the right things with diet and exercise. It doesn't seem to matter what you do. Things just get worse.

    What gets me is when someone you connect with and through a period of time, you end up loving this person on a family sort of level, they get attacked, and you end up on a rescue mission to save this person's life. Why? Because it is the right thing to do out of love. It's not like you are looking for a fight, but you find yourself in one. To save the one you love.

    Jay was all about protection. So am I. Brook would tell you that too, as it was part of my job description to protect her and whoever else that needed some help. What needs to be said here is that there is a real war going on, and the Darkside knows when to strike. When you least expect it.

    What I also found that helps, is self-discipline. Meaning, ground yourself every day, shield yourself every day and everything that is in your space. Even your car. It only takes a minute to do this in your day. Also, get a piece of tourmaline. Make a necklace or whatever but have it around or on your person. It will amp up your grounding immensely. With a good grounding field, your shielding and everything else will be enhanced greatly. Shield your house and the ones you love.

    Also, let it be known that we take for granted our Auric Field. This is so dangerous on so many levels. The Darkside can inject things into your Auric Field. It's easier for them to do because they operate at a frequency which is hidden from you. They have some very nasty nano tech. Also, diseases that they have engineered. They can implant your Auric Field with their tech. Black goo is another one and that tech has different types or classifications. They don't have to inject your physical body with these things. And let us not forget the delivery methods that they can also use. Beam energy weapons are weapons that can be manipulated that can most subtle and yet deadly. Even cancer can be triggered by implanting your Auric Field.

    About 2 years ago at PA, a loving and dear friend of mine was attacked by a Reptilian faction. Nasty bastards they were. They nearly got her. It was to close. She barely escapes. All do to the fact that some of my Plejaren Brothers went after this faction and engage in a mini space war and took them out. She came down with cancer and died within a year. The thing here is that she knew how to heal cancer but that didn't matter. Tory Smith is another one. They sucked his life force right out of him within 3 weeks.


    Morpheus wrote:No worries OXY. I can only answer from these moccasins I stand in. The attack occurred at about noon on March 7, 2010. I had to go to my RV trailer which was being stored at Ocean Grove RV, in St. Augustine, Fl. I went there to retrieve some personal photos for Brook. The attack put me on the ground. Had no energy to get up. Laid there on the ground for an hour and finally mustered enough energy to get into the trailer and made my way to the bed, where I rested for a good 4 hours, to regain my strength. Made it home somehow and was messed up for three weeks and then some. RA was not a channeled experience. It was the real thing. He addressed me as, "Brother." When I say the real thing, he showed up in spirit. He's been here twice and Brook, Sekhmet, and he had a pow-wow both times. Understand that this 3D density causes these beings to form in an energy state. Even though you can see their form. RA is one amazing being, unlike all the propaganda you hear. His aura was blue and white and the closest description is that he was like starlight. He did have his ship parked somewhere. Both meetings lasted about 45 minutes. I did not get involved with their discussions of strategy and whatnot, although I could have. I wanted Brook to have quality time with them both so I stayed in the background. www.oceangroveresort.com

I gave Sherry a lot of free-advertising in my many threads. Sherry sometimes seemed to be speaking about me personally (but I don't wish to discuss details). It was SO Obvious. Sherry seemed to know a lot, but often seemed hard, bitter, and deluded. She would say the most intelligent things, and then seemingly mispronounce words on purpose. Sherry also claimed to be constantly attacked and poisoned. She coughed a lot on her show. She claimed heart-disease and other serious ailments. Sherry supposedly died in January of 2018, but I can't uncover details or verification. I've suspected that Sherry is still alive, though incognito. I thought I heard her calling in to a podcast long after she supposedly died. I've been coughing a lot for several years, and this seems to be respiratory-irritation which is non-virus and non-contagious. The doctors say I'm fine (after several years of expensive tests and open-heart surgery).

    But I continue to feel worse and worse, with neurological, gastrointestinal, respiratory, mental, and spiritual symptoms. I also continue to gain weight, even as I eat less and exercise more. I suspect Cancer or Worse. I feel Toxic and Oppressed. I suspect that the PTB know exactly what's wrong with me and who is doing it to me, yet it seems Expedient that One Completely-Ignorant Fool Suffer and Perish, rather than Threaten the Way Things Are and Have Been for Thousands of Years. As I feel worse and worse I get needled more and more, as if I'm supposed to do something bad to justify bringing me down hard, with the primary-perpetrators remaining completely-hidden, while those who probably know act like they don't know (as faithful-servants of the Custodians of the Status-Quo). Interesting World. Read Ecclesiastes 12 regarding 'Every Secret Thing'. I keep hearing that EVERYTHING is Recorded. What Would the Record Keepers Do?? What Would the Watchers Do?? What Would the Nasty Little Horn Do?? What Would the White Reptilians Under the Gobi Desert Do?? What Would the Angel of Death Do?? What Would Iron Man Do??

    What got me started back in the day, was that I stumbled on the fact that GOLD was being extracted from the Planet and taken elsewhere. Off-world. Gaia being exploited once again. That just pissed me off. So I started my own path of research. This was way before the Internet has become what it is today. That path led me to underground bases. Also inner Earth stuff. Many sessions. There wasn't much on these topics back in the day. Then the abduction scenarios, that I was aware of in 1975, re-energized. The who, the why, and the how, became my mission to know.

    In 1975, I was attending E. O Smith High school, located at UConn University, Connecticut. I did a term paper on the UFO phenomenon for a Humanities class. E.O.S. teachers weren't just teachers. They had P.H.D.s. The problem I had with this term paper, was that there was actually so much material to digest and then to transform it to paper with an ancient Royal typewriter my Mom had from her high school days. I had to turn in the term paper a week after the due date because of these factors and my final grade was penalized to a B+. It would have been an A+ if I had turned it in on the due date. The Dr. Teacher, {I don't remember his name}, said it was one of the best term papers he had ever read.  Thubs Up

    Talk about a boat anchor........ it must have weighed 20 lbs. Keep in mind, typewriters didn't have a backspace or a delete button. So if I made a typo error, I had to start over. How many times that happened will not even be revealed in my last confession. aggghhhh!  Mad 2

    EOS was one of the top ten high schools in the country at the time. And today, after all these years, I just spotted a school with a feline emblem. Smacking my head right now. Argh

    Anyways, where did I just go? Crazy Happy Alex Collier was dead on as far as this Planet being used as a farm and that we are a resource. I proved it out for myself way before Alex brought it out to the public. I discovered Alex in 2009 when I signed on the old PA. Did the do on Dec. 3, 2005, 4 years previously. No lightworker lost their life on that day.  Cool

    My question to you OXY, is what do think of the Terra Papers? I'm thinking of posting the full contents of the Terra Papers on this thread. For discussion purposes and although I am not a fan of the copy and paste method, I find the Terra Papers most credible as to what I "KNOW" of things. I am willing to concede on this topic. With Carol's blessings of course? {you want to lose weight over time, just cut out your carb intake, the pounds will quickly drop Thubs Up }

    The real question OXY, is what are you going to do? And please don't cop out! That is not the answer to anything.

    P.S. It might explain why I prefer older computer keyboards because they had stiffer keys. Or a stiffer feel.


    orthodoxymoron wrote:Morpheus, your post resonated with me. I did papers in grades 7-12 on topics like 'chemical and biological warfare' and 'enhanced brain-function with electrode-implantation'. What's weird is that I think I was gifted early-on, but got dumber and more-miserable following adolescence. This worsened in adulthood. My efforts to 'think outside of the box' seem to have been cracked down upon by the Matrix (in retrospect). I think that doing anything more than I'm presently doing would be an absolute disaster. What little I'm presently doing is a disaster (even though I mean well). It seems as if once one gets targeted by the nether-realms it's all over. I won't sell-out and play-ball so it's game-over for me. Reviewing the Alex Collier and Robert Morning Sky material is probably a fine-idea (even though I don't know how much is Truth v BS). I never know, which is why I simply whisper and whimper on this little website. I've copied and pasted way too much on the Mists, mostly to attempt to integrate historical religious stuff with newfangled alternative research stuff.  

    The PTB hire mercenaries to monitor nut-cases like me. Reports are generated, so Those in the Know are well aware of the contents of this website. I'm not interested in yelling 'FIRE!!' in crowded places, and being accused of creating mass-hysteria. It seems as if ALL-Sides are Centrally-Controlled. I suspect I'm supposed to observe and reflect without saying or doing much of anything. There seems to be an eagerness to get me to 'stand-up' and then get mercilessly 'knocked-down'. It's probably better to just 'stay-down'. The internet is already communicating every conceivable perspective for those with 'eyes to see' and 'ears to hear' so why add to the confusion?? I've grown fond of the Noble-Agnostic with Responsible-Neutrality (half-jokingly and half-seriously). BTW, Sherry Shriner claimed to be the Ancient Granddaughter of King David. She was Anti-Paul and Pro-Torah, with a heavy-emphasis on the Book of Revelation. Focusing on the Horrific and Sensational seemed to be her modus-operandi. Namaste.

Regarding Biblical History, Prophecy, and Theology, Context is Extremely Important. The Bible seems highly-compartmentalized, and in many ways highly-compromised. Ancient-Texts can be added-thereto and truncated to be made to say just about anything by picking and choosing, presenting certain themes in certain ways which might contain very little truth. Cover-Stories might've been necessary for a variety of good and bad reasons. My mantra throughout the years has been "How Do We REALLY Know Anything-Significant with a Significant-Degree of Certainty (Especially Regarding Antiquity and the Otherworldly)??" I've recently been thinking in terms of reading Psalms and Isaiah straight-through, over and over, with Isaiah reflecting an Angry and Offended God, and Psalms reflecting the Penitent-Response to an Angry and Offended God. But perhaps I should somehow include Daniel in this study, reading Isaiah and Psalms (straight-through, over and over) concluding with Daniel (straight-through, over and over). Perhaps one should think in terms of 'Key-Books' rather than 'Key-Texts'. A Text Without a Context is a Pretext. Namaste.

You also asked, "How Do We REALLY Know Anything-Significant with a Significant-Degree of Certainty (Especially Regarding Antiquity and the Otherworldly)??"

    Well, sometimes you confuse me. Heavens? Let me unconfuse myself here. There are the term heavens and then there is the term Heaven. Two different meanings in terms of a context. You seem to blend them into one context. Trips me up. At least this is what I am perceiving and I could be wrong. My bad if I am, but I will share what I remember. And that memory just came not too long ago. 23 years ago. 1996.



    After my soul birthing, I was assigned a position as an Angel of Heaven. I was paired with another Angel. We were both very young in terms of Creation. Because of that, we were not given any tasks that required heavy lifting. We were stationed as overseers. We were first stationed somewhere in a cavern of crystals. Also to protect them. I think this is where I received my training in terms of learning how to communicate with crystals. We graduated from that and was assigned to our next station.

    And now I present to you a pretext. Yes, I, Kayzon, am a fallen Angel.

    pre·text- a reason given in justification of a course of action that is not the real reason.

    The next assignment was to oversee a nasty black dragon. Just one dragon. To answer your question, yes, they were there, not in Heaven, but outside of it, in the second dimension. The second dimension being in the context of the Heavens. Heaven is a spacial place in the second dimension or Heavens with a different frequency bandwidth. Also, keep in mind we are not talking about Reptilians here. Also, that all dragons aren't bad. But when our Divine Creator created the humans, some of these dragons felt disrespected in a major way. Even Jay Essex knew that the dragons were created before humans. He claims to be the one who created them. Jay says, "They call me Father."

    What is not being said here is that Creation was very young back then, in Antiquity. Also very volatile. I think this is the reason why our Creator created the Dragon Race first. The Creator's intention being that because of the volatile nature of the Heavens at the time, needed a race capable of protecting his creations. Similar as an example in our Planet's past, where Gaia created the dinos to protect the surface of the Planet from races outside of her systems. Where do you think she got the idea from in the first place? I mean being connected to the Creator has its benefits. I've seen this connection in the firsthand during the time when India detonated an atomic bomb below ground during the time when Obama went to India when he was President.

    Anyways, getting back to the dragon at hand. Our orders were very simple. Just observe and do not engage under any circumstances! The reason why she and I were paired was to watch each other's backs. Also to enforce our directives with each other. Cover our butts. In the case where we were discovered, we were ordered to get the hell out of there. Now there is something I haven't quite figured out with all of this. It seemed that when you approached Heaven, maybe a zone surrounding it, a human returning to Heaven would reanimate their physicality to some degree. Remember that things back then were not perfected and the bugs in Creation existed. As I have expressed, Creation was still young. Anyways, this dragon would wait and then spring onto an unsuspecting human returning to Heaven. He was huge in size and he would slice and dice a human in no time. I remember seeing blood and body parts. It was horrific to watch. One after another he would consume. Sometimes even playing with his captures like a cat playing with a mouse. Then consume them.

    We floated there in our assignment, absolutely powerless because of our directives. Then the moment happened where, after another episode, my partner decided to engage this dragon. It happened so quick, as like a blink of an eye. She flew and engaged him, but she was no match. I just stood there in shock as I watched him kill her. This time he did not go into consumption mode and he released her and she fell, as in fell forever into the abyss of darkness. I felt my soul just explode into a million pieces. Then I fell into the abyss of darkness. And that falling lasted for eons. I died in a matter of speaking. On a soul level. No will whatsoever. I did love her.

    We met back in 1996 when I lived in Salt Lake City, Utah. Just seeing her once again was a mind-blowing experience as the memory of all this came back and struck me like a ton of bricks. Her soul memory had been wiped clean. But there was a piece of her that recognized me but she had no explanation to offer as to why. It was like looking at an empty shell on one level. If I knew the Creator could reanimate a soul back to life, I might not have fallen from Grace. It wasn't because of some imaginary war the bible depicts in Heaven. There has never been a war fought in Heaven. Maybe in the Heavens... and that I say with the intention of the proper context of this story.

    We had a small affair and then went our separate ways, without anything being said at all. I suffered in January 1997, three days of death. 3 days scattered in that month. I was the walking dead in a literal sense. All I could figure out was that she was given a second chance but had to earn it and I figured I would have just gotten in the way of that, so I moved on despite the love I had in my heart for her.

    I don't know how long my fall from Grace lasted. All I remember, as I was falling, sometimes seeing streaks of thin gray light. I suspect I was rescued by the Family of AN in the Orion sector as that is where my memory picked up once again. And that was a long time ago.

    As to your other question, let me just say that I no longer value the Bible as you do because I discovered the Bible that my Creator gave me and that is in my heart. It doesn't have any lies. There is no confusion as to the answers that I sought. It isn't a manipulated cosmic comic book that is limited in the scope of time, of what? Maybe five thousand years? It is impossible to understand your soul life in terms of the time-limited literature that you read because you are way older than that. But carry on if you must. It is your choice to do so and I will respect your free agency as to that, and still love you at the same time.  study  my Brother! Study.......!!!!!!!!!!! The only answer I can offer you is that I am "certain" you will never find your "certainty" in a book. I hope you don't think I am being mean when I say that. You'll just have to prove that out for yourself. No one will be able to do that for you.

    Namaste'


    orthodoxymoron wrote:Morpheus, I always appreciate your insights. In many ways they're better than science-fiction, yet I still treat all of this stuff as science-fiction (including the Bible and other alleged Sacred-Writings). When I talk to religious people who have it all figured out, it's a war when I challenge their precious-faith with my questions and speculation. I often seem to be regarded as evil, lost, deluded, deceived, and playing into the hands of the devil. Then, when I converse with people such as yourself, I'm regarded as closed-minded, old-fashioned, and content to delude myself with second-hand bullshit. I've witnessed numerous religious-wars at close-range, and I've simply attempted to perform post-mortems on some really-bloody corpses. Anyway, in retrospect, I often wish I had simply ignored the religious and political controversies, and followed-through on becoming a Big-Shot Cardiac-Surgeon with a Waterfront-Mansion, a Model-Wife, and Charming-Children (attending Harvard and Oxford). Then I wouldn't have gone round and round and round and round (going nowhere fast). I would've been a Millionaire with a Jay Leno's Garage of Exotic-Cars (and people wouldn't hate and ignore me).

    The concept of an Omnipotent-God with Absolutely-Obedient Servants is interesting. Context is Determinative. To teach Responsibility a Good-God might allow Good-Children to Learn Things the Hard-Way (without drowning or burning them to death, or torturing them mercilessly for all-eternity). I've been interested in the concept of a Three-Planet Solar-System with Planet-Hell, Planet-Purgatory, and Planet-Paradise, wherein Souls would incarnate into the Appropriate-Planet for Rewards and Punishments (without eternal-finality). On the other hand, said Solar-System or Soul-System might be an Eternal and Universal Governance Modus-Operandi. Your stories honestly scare the hell out of me. I couldn't finish reading 'The Lucifer Diary' by Attorney Lewis Walton. I've read several of his books, heard him preach sermons, and talked to him privately, and that one book is uncharacteristic of his literary-output. He once told me "If Jesus showed-up, the church wouldn't know what to do with him." I'm beginning to understand what he meant (in unexpected ways). I can't comment directly on your story. I get too deeply involved when reading such stories. I might be remembering bits and pieces, perhaps via implanted-thoughts. I might somehow be connected to the system without my consent. I never signed on the dotted-line, but that might not be much of an obstacle for the REAL PTB.

    One Last Thing. I'm reposting those Terra Papers posts on 'my' thread, if that's OK with you. I've also included other material from this thread (most often when we've conversed). I hope that's OK. I repost a lot of stuff from Carol's 'Deep-State' thread. I like to include a potpourri of perspectives (often without comment) to provide a conceptual-laboratory for all-concerned (and unconcerned). I sense that my threads are annoying to everyone, and I often wonder why I bother?! What's the Point?? I Seem to be Losing My Reason to Be. 2B or Not 2B??

    THIS is why I no longer project into the astral realms.  Seeing beings I cared for there hurt and threatened by what I was choosing to do broke my heart.  Fighting back, even defensively as you say, just made it all escalate.  Tit-for-tat.  And so the wars continue and always will in this realm of being.

    Funny thing is that, in the end, I thought I’d try to help protect our big cats in India and Africa against the poachers and big game hunters here on the planet but the animals turned their backs on me because I wouldn’t kill for them.  In their view, that’s how enemies are dealt with.  Anything less, even if it works, is just not good enough.  I understand, even though it saddened me.  In the animal kingdom, it’s all about killing to survive, each and every day.  The power to do so is what they respect.

    And it doesn’t escape me that a lot of the threats against humanity come from ‘evolved’ animals, like the reptilians.  Predators of the highest order with those animal instincts still shouting loudly in them.

    That’s why I’ll be very happy to leave this animal body we incarnate in, with all those drives built-in, when the time comes.  We are not these bodies.  That’s why I like this thread with its important initial message Lionhawk, letting everyone know there IS a way out.  Thank you again for doing the work in that area.  And all your other work to discover, help and protect humanity.

    Each to his/her own path as chosen eh?  As you say, personal responsibility, even for our own health and healing, is what it all comes back to is so much a part of all I’ve learned on my journeys.  And along the way, learning discrimination so as to choose the webs you get caught up in, or not,  wisely.

    Namaste   Hugs

    And I thank you Sanicle for being a wise soul. I know that wisdom came with a price. On so many levels. I respect you! Very Happy It means you have done the "work" to get to this level of awareness. Double Thumbs Up
    And a big loving hug. Cheerful The beauty of it is we can discuss it, without all the polarization of it all. Again, thank you!  Flowers

    Jay was always letting everyone know that we are not these bodies. He barked about it. Thubs Up

    I love the term you used to describe it. "drives built-in." So spot on. Is it any wonder why this Planet is so crazy? Let alone what is outside of it? Dimensional spaces and whatnot? What I have figured out is that this Planet is a reactionary theater of the Universe. That is why this Planet is so important as far as it's representations in the now. It manifests what is going on out there, into our physicality. It would also stand to reason why this Planet has such diversity. Add the Drives built-in, Whooaaa! We all learn, all Kingdoms, gain soul growth by living it in a "reactionary" mode. And in a sense, we are forced to comply with this or we die. Our death represents that we are no longer in compliance with what this reactionary mode of operation requires to keep the circle of life going. Another reason as to why we have to have a purpose. If we have no purpose, we die, plain and simple. All the killing, diseases, etc. are the means to discard what is no longer useful in the reactionary theater. I know that sounds cold but this is my opinion.

    Proof of this can be seen in Nature. Where the strong survive and the weak either get consumed or die by other means. One of the "Drives Built-in," is genetic selection. For instance, a female seeking the strongest male to procreate. We see this all the time and it does not exclude the Human race. It can also work in reverse, as with honey bees. Where a Queen may be rejected by the hive. She may not have the right level of strength to get the respect, to be allowed to procreate.

    A saying in the Bible, "The meek shall inherit the Earth," is a lie as long as this reactionary theater is in the present operational state. Try telling this to a fish. Where a fish's greatest fear is to be eaten by another fish. 24/7. To prove that out, take a lantern or light and hang it above the water. What you will see is a gathering of fish swimming in a circle. At the innermost part of that circle, you will see the smallest of fishes and as the circle continues to go outward, the fish get bigger. Fish chasing fish, and then the bigger fishes start eating the smaller fishes. The little fishes had been attracted to the light and gathered up to appear bigger presenting an illusion to the bigger fishes. But watch what happens at the edge of this group of fish swimming in a circle. The fishes that stray out of the circle get consumed.

    Natural selection? Would women select someone on the street, say a druggie, over someone with a job? And the Drive Built-in to procreate gets really crazy when hitting thirty years old, for most women. The Drive built-in to procreate becomes paramount. That internal clock goes into high gear.

    To kill or be killed? To survive or die? What will you choose? I understand the answer they gave you Sanicle. Oh so clearly. Their answer to you was the truest answer. Without the emotional energy associated with the bottom line. A pure answer. Their level of respect to you to give you the answer should not be received with sadness. They honored you by telling you the plain truth. Either you are part of their solution with a whole heart or you are not. Anything outside of that would just be a compromise to their rightful existence. Don't be sad and yes I do understand why you would be sad. In that process, they also gave you an invitation to their oversoul pride, as a standing member.

    Just like the phrase in the movie called, "The Fly," where there is the mention of Insect Politics.



    It is just the parameters they fully know that they operate in. Without the politics. And we all know about politics. A compromising program which will kill you one way or the other if you engage it and if you don't, when you least expect it. Same with religions where they are merely political programs in disguise, which all of them try to get you to believe in their agendas. All this summing up to programs designed to kill us. And to subscribe to the secondhand, whereby if we do subscribe to the secondhand, we are giving our power away, submitting to their intentions, and giving them permission to kill us.

    And if I zoom out, what I think is going on is that this 3D space we are in was designed by whatever creators, not of this world, to reflect what is truly going on in the Universe. What is going on out there is being focused to this Planet and the Planet is being used as a TV for all of the Universe to see. When I say "all," I am speaking of everyone out there. If an ET race wanted to know what was going on in this Universe, all they would have to do is focus on Earth, see what is happening, backtrace the coding, decipher it to translate it to their way of thinking, interpretation, and design and voila. This might also explain why Earth is being focused on by so many ET races in the now. And why, as we go day by day, things are happening even faster, and frequencies are increasing on the Planet. Simply because what is going on out there is also increasing in terms of events. And the players out there also change positions from whatever happens out there. Like their wars, their empires, death, destruction, creation, etc. So it is being tramsmitted here and we get to see and experience those reflections here. It is the very reason why we have, "TIME." All time is, is a measurement of a frequency. That is why so-called time is known to be here. A transmission is a frequency being directed. Now, look at all the frequencies we are dealing with. Now, 5G?

    "And along the way, learning discrimination so as to choose the webs you get caught up in, or not,  wisely." Kind of like picking the seat you want to sit on when you go to a movie. Well, we are all in this reactive theater of the Universe. What you wrote here, is the absolute truth!

    Please listen to the words carefully when viewing the below video.

    What seat did you choose to sit on?

'HE' looked at me and said "You've got me all figured-out, don't you??" TREEE lived in Las Vegas, which is sometimes known as 'Babylon'. TREEE was an ex-prostitute. That might make her the 'Whore of Babylon'. One time she said "The Reason They Call Her the 'Whore of Babylon' is Because She Babbles On and On and On!!" A very-long time-ago I worked with a young and pretty Biker-Chick a couple of hours from Vegas. We very-briefly discussed prostitution. You Don't Suppose?! Nah!!

    Who Is British Socialite Ghislaine Maxwell,
    Jeffrey Epstein’s Longtime Partner?

    https://www.rollingstone.com/culture/culture-news/ghislaine-maxwell-jeffrey-epstein-arrest-856874/

    Since hedge fund manager and well-connected billionaire Jeffrey Epstein was arrested on Saturday and charged with sex trafficking and sex trafficking conspiracy, the names of powerful men in his social circle — including President Donald Trump, former President Bill Clinton, and, weirdly, former lead investigator of the Clinton/Lewinsky scandal Kenneth Starr — have popped up over and over and over again. Notably, only one woman’s name has made a recurring appearance in discussions of Epstein’s crimes: that of Ghislaine Maxwell, a British socialite and Epstein’s longtime confidante, who is alleged to have played a pivotal role in procuring young women for him.

    Although no charges have been filed against Maxwell — or anyone else in Epstein’s inner circle, for that matter — she has long been dogged by allegations that she played a pivotal role in procuring young women for Epstein, and has been named in numerous civil suits to that effect. As for Epstein himself, he pleaded not guilty to the charges against him on Monday. (Rolling Stone reached out to Epstein’s legal team for comment, but has not received a response. Maxwell has denied any involvement in the past, with a representative calling the allegations “obvious lies.”)

    Surprisingly, given Maxwell’s relatively high-profile role in both the English and American social scenes, fairly little is known about her or the exact nature of her relationship with Epstein: she’s been alternately referred to as Epstein’s romantic partner, his best friend, his fixer, and a “madam” catering to his sexual desires. Here’s what we do know about the woman who has been a member of Epstein’s inner circle for decades — and whether we can expect to see her playing a larger role in the criminal proceedings against him.

    Who is Ghislaine Maxwell?

    Maxwell is the daughter of British media mogul Robert Maxwell, who owned and operated a number of British tabloids and was at one point estimated to have been worth nearly $1.9 billion. She was educated at the prestigious Marlborough boarding school in the U.K., and went on to study at Oxford. The Maxwells were active in both British and American social circles, and the family apparently had ties to Trump before even Epstein did: a 1989 clipping from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch lists Trump as a guest on Robert Maxwell’s yacht, the aptly named Lady Ghislaine. In 1991, Maxwell was found dead under mysterious circumstances after reportedly having fallen overboard from the yacht. It was later discovered that he was in a significant amount of debt at the time of his death, and had embezzled from his employees’ pension fund.



    The X 22 Spotlight with Robert David Steele
    Arrests Must Be Made Before The Election, They Have To

    Robert David Steel partial transcript:

    Do you want to come to a current story today, the Epstein story the media is systematically avoiding? And I call this in 2008. I said Epstein was a fake billionaire, he was a Mossad operation. He was an upgrade to the Ghyslain Maxwell prostitution ring that included children. Ghyslain Maxwell, as the daughter of Robert Maxwell, who got a state funeral or being the most famous Mossad agent n history. Okay, so the media today is not covering that Epsilon was funded by Les Wexner, who is bisexual and who may have funded 9/11. It's not covering the fact that CIA and that it's a Mossad operation. It's not covering the fact that CIA and the FBI were complicit from day one … and I've been sharing the tapes, and finally the media is absolutely not covering the fact that Epstein is just one of 50 Mossad pedophilia entrapment operations across the United States America. There are 49 others, all of them protected by the FBI … and one final point, these 27 states that passed a law making it a Felony to call for a boycott in Israel. Do you think they passed that because it was a good idea, or do you think they passed that because all of them are being bribed and half of them are being blackmailed by the Mossad for pedophilia?

    With lending to the core here. Yeah, I mean, with Epstein, he's just the frontman. Right?

    He's the frontman and let me tell you we have something in the intelligence business called sheep dipping. Oh, and what that means is like in the case of Edward Snowden, who I'm still convinced was the CIA operation against NSA. The State Department is stupid but they're not so stupid as to cancel his passport so that he has to stay in Russia.

    What they did with Snowden, who was a security guard and a high school graduate at NSA, and he got his job because he had decent parents who had security clearances. He was a high school graduate security guard at NSA. They took him into CIA. They ran him overseas and sheep dipped him as a CIA technician. Then they brought him back and Buz Allen placed him in Hawaii despite his lack of qualifications - and then he was handed the so-called treasure trove hundreds of other people had spent over a year putting together... and then the Edward Snowden thing was launched.

    So Epstein was basically a penniless moron who couldn't graduate from college - and they placed him in a school, and then they sheep dip him of Bear Sterns - and then Les Wax Nichol appears to have had an affair with him. Then funded him as a fake billionaire - and that was the launch. Now Epstein wasn't smart enough to actually run a prostitution ring. That's all Ghislaine Maxwell.

    Because Ghislaine Maxwell, as best I can tell from secondary sources, was running a prostitution ring for the Mossad in New York City. It included children, but they needed a boy to normalize pedophilia and to suck in the boys. I used the term advisedly, then and bring people in and kind of basically take it up to the presidential level - and so Jeffrey Epstein was managed by Ghislaine Maxwell.

    And that's another aspect of the story that the media doesn't want to cover.

    Epstein is a fake in so many different ways but nobody wants to touch. I mean you look at Bloomberg. I'm reading everything, everyday. Bloomberg, New York Times, New York Post, Forbes, Atlantic. They are all either run by pedophiles, or scared to death of being killed for running with the stories. And what's very interesting is when this came out they changed everything. They changed Wikipedia. They changed the pictures, like they removed the pictures with Clinton. They, from I mean, we're erasing everybody. Yeah, I mean everything completely changed and nobody's going down the path that you know Epstein was friend friends with. Clinton flew on the Lolita Express. Ghislaine Elaine Maxwell was that. I mean, he (Clinton) flew on the Lolita Express and coincidentally, every time he flew, there were a cadre of very little girls on the same airplane. Look the bottom line here.

    Is that the entire mass media, including CNN and Fox. Fox is particularly derelict, because Fox should be all over this story.  The entire mass media is either terrified or compromised and this is a story that has to be told and I'll tell you why. For too many years America has been run by a foreign power named Israel - and I am careful always to distinguish between Zionism and Judaism, two completely different things.

    What we have here is an opportunity for the president to do 9/11 disclosure, plus Epstein disclosure, and essentially get us to an honest Congress that makes evidence-based decisions, which is why Cynthia and I. Cynthia McKinney and I were pushing hashtag on Rick. And they came after us, the Zionists, not the Jews. The Zionists came after us six ways in 90 days.

    "What Are We Going to Do About Orthodoxymoron??

    Consider the following scriptural groupings (read straight-through, over and over, in a variety of translations):

    1. Genesis to Deuteronomy.

    2. Joshua to Esther.

    3. Job to Isaiah.

    4. Jeremiah to Malachi.

    5. Matthew to John.

    6. Acts to Jude.

    7. Revelation.

    What does each group reveal about itself?? What does each group reveal about the other groups?? Atheist and Agnostic writers and speakers mostly make their livings critiquing Sacred-Scripture and Judeo-Christianity rather than promoting the Stand-Alone Glories of Atheism and Agnosticism. I'm simply suggesting that some of us should study the Bible as Noble-Agnostics with Responsible-Neutrality. Go Anglican-Agnostics!! This is obviously NOT for the General-Public. Luke Ford (Son of the Late Dr. Desmond Ford) has stated that all religions make sense when one is in the middle of them (or when one is there) but often lose their charm when one changes the context (and shakes things up a bit). I've slightly paraphrased what Luke said. I've recently suggested reading Psalms and Isaiah straight-through, over and over, followed by reading Daniel straight-through, over and over. This isn't exactly Whole-Bible Grammatical-Historical Hermeneutics, but what if All the Above are Missing-Links in Biblical and Theological Research?? Perhaps I should revert to the 'Reading Job to Daniel (straight-through, over and over)' Concept of 'Remedial Biblical-Studies' even though this is probably worse than a 'Lost-Cause in Modernity'. This morning, it really hit me right between the eyes, that for me 'This Present Quest' is over, and I've failed (even though I was never sure what it was that I was supposed to be accomplishing). Perhaps we're dealing with Eight-Billion Completely-Ignorant Fools Attempting to be Gods and Goddesses in Babylon (or something to that effect). Please consider This Present Thread, and add to it, as I watch from the shadows. If no-one comments you might never have to deal with me again. I might only respond to comments and questions. I stupidly 'Stood-Up' and now I'm 'Sitting-Down' (badly-burned and very-cautious). Namaste (or whatever).

    The Epstein Associate Nobody’s Talking About:
    The IDF-Linked Bond Girl Infiltrating the UK NHS
    July 20, 2019

    I have a story to tell you. A story that causes my heart to pound and my blood pressure to rise as I type each and every word. A true story of a woman of great wealth and power, who rode on Jeffrey Epstein’s “Lolita Express” private jet on several occasions. She appears to be a German-born Israeli state intelligence operative based in London. An ex-model whose name appeared in the Panama Papers from the Mossack Fonseca leaks and who became embroiled in a FIFA corruption scandal with Sepp Blatter and his family. She is perhaps the closest example that you could possibly find to a real-life “Bond Girl.” Yet, she is almost completely unknown to the majority of us.

    This lady has recently infiltrated the NHS through the UK Department of Health and Social Care with the help of Matt Hancock MP, and her presence signifies a major threat to the data security of every citizen of the United Kingdom. Every single piece of data about you, your health issues, your blood type, the model of the wireless pacemaker keeping you alive, every detail of every embarrassing medical problem in the hands of the Israeli state apparatus and potentially sold off to the highest bidder. You may think that this doesn’t concern you. Why would you need to worry about a foreign far-right government which has been proven to meddle in the affairs of our country? Your data would be useless to them, surely? But that’s not the world we live in anymore. Big data is the modern gold rush. The psychologists and marketing agents have mastered how to make you buy things; the next step is for them to successfully master making you do things, and for that kind of control over people, they need everybody’s data.

    When I was first researching the Jeffrey Epstein case, I trawled through every piece of official documentation that was available. I knew what I was looking for and how very dangerous it was. I had begun attempting to identify state assets through their movements, actions, associations, and by good old fashioned detective work. I was interested in identifying any MI5 or MI6 agents, Israeli Mossad, CIA, or any other part of a nation states spying apparatus. It’s possibly one of the most dangerous hobbies on earth, spy hunting, and if I’m honest, I’m not even sure why I’m doing it. Regardless, Jeffrey Epstein’s sweetheart deal was probably what they would give to a foreign intelligence operative. Epstein was a perfect place to begin fishing for potential spooks.

    Once I find somebody who I suspect of being involved in espionage, I will track down all existing information on that individual and build the story of their lives as best as I can. I learn every known habit they have and instead of immediately writing an article about them, I just continue to note their activities with interest. I have been watching many potential state actors for a fair few years. I’ve also missed out on breaking a few good stories by waiting for too long. But I don’t want to simply show you the past as much as I want to show you the present, and even possibly, the future.

    Investigation Manifest

    In the Epstein case, one of the best pieces of evidence which was available to researchers was the flight manifest for his child trafficking molestation machine. There were many coded initials and a few famous names noted in the official documentation. As you probably already know, Bill Clinton and his Secret Service agents had ridden the infamous “Lolita Express” on many occasions. Naomi Campbell, Kevin Spacey, Alan Dershowitz and Chris Tucker also flew on the plane with the billionaire sex offender.

    We all build up recognisable patterns of behaviour over time. When you investigate someone, you usually start by identifying these patterns and then looking for any divergences from the anticipated outcomes. In Epstein’s planes flight manifest, a pattern which was visible from the information available is how he would use his private jet. He would use the plane for two main reasons. Most commonly he would fly himself and a number of his entourage to a destination, or alternatively he would fly people to meet him. The rarest occurrence was when Epstein would fly without any of his usual entourage and just one other passenger. There was only one name that jumped out from the flight manifest as a good example of when Epstein alternated from his routine. His second meeting with Nicole Junkermann.

    As of 2019, Nicole Junkermann’s current business portfolio is very impressive. She’s often described as an ex-model, entrepreneur and investor, but Ms. Junkermann is much more than just what you see at first glance. Born in Dusseldorf, Germany on 27th April 1975, Nicole Junkermann studied Business Administration at the International University of Monaco, and then went onto study Management Development at the prestigious Harvard Business School in the United States. Amongst her many talents she is multilingual and can speak German, English, French, Italian, and Spanish. In 1998, after graduating from the University of Monaco, she co-founded “Winamax,” which was an early online gaming platform that existed before online gaming regulation became a priority for the authorities. Winamax was sold in 2001 and Junkermann would go on to invest in a recently created media rights company called “Infront Sports and Media AG,” where she would soon serve as the Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors.

    The then President and Chief Executive at Infront Sports and Media, Phillipe Blatter.

    In 2002, Junkermann acquired the rights for the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany with her relatively new company Infront Sports and Media. The company was best known at this time for its president and chief executive, Philippe Blatter, the nephew of Sepp Blatter, the then president of FIFA. This overt nepotistic corruption left Junkermann’s Infront Sports and Media as the company to market the TV rights to major FIFA tournaments. It went on to acquire the rights to all of FIFA’s World Cups, and even though this deal was watered down in 2006, in 2011 FIFA again gave Infront permission to sell the TV rights, in the Asian markets, for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.

    During her time at Infront Sports and Media, Junkermann would be caught flying on Jeffrey Epstein’s “Lolita Express” on three occasions. The first flight recorded, on 22nd March 2002, she would share with Epstein, Sean Koo, and one other passenger, but it’s her second trip which really stands out. On Saturday 31st August 2002, Jeffrey Epstein and Nicole Junkermann would fly from Paris Le Bourget Airport to Birmingham Airport, in the UK, alone. They would return to Paris, via the same route, on Monday 2nd September 2002. For Jeffrey Epstein to fly without any of his normally present entourage is very unusual. So what was happening that weekend? I’ve done a lot of research on these dates, but as of yet, I do not have any answers.

    At that time, Junkermann was 27 years old, so it’s very unlikely that they were dating, as everyone knows Jeffrey Epstein isn’t interested in fully sexually developed adults. Finding this anomaly on Epstein’s plane manifest encouraged me to look deeper into the life of Nicole Junkermann, and amongst other things, whether or not she had any links to a state intelligence agency. Were Junkermann and Epstein meeting alone for innocent reasons? Even though Junkerman had made many investments already, she might have been trying to get more funds from an eager investor like Epstein. How Epstein originally accrued his billions is still quite a murky subject in itself.

    Whatever the reason for these two incredibly rich people being together, this meeting was a very private one. Junkermann had also just completed Harvard University’s Program for Management Development, and Jeffrey Epstein had a high-profile relationship with Harvard which, in 2003, led to him donating $30,000,000.00 to the Ivy League college. Was Epstein using the famous American college to recruit for his own businesses or other interests?

    More Epstein later, but firstly, continuing with Junkermann’s career, in 2005 she founded a private equity fund focused on media and sports investments in Asia and Europe called “United in Sports” and managed to raised €242.2 million for the venture in 2007. Her other project, Infront Sports and Media, was ultimately sold to a European private equity firm, Bridgepoint, for €600 million in 2011. In that year Nicole Junkermann had officially become one of the hottest investors in the world. Since her very first acquisitions which I’ve already referred to, Junkermann has invested in or purchased: Shanghai Really Sports, Ziggurat, Thousand-Child, Aloha, Jobbio, Emoticast, Elvie, Auctionata, Coindrum, Spoon Guru, Optiopay, Grabyo, Magnum Global Ventures, Songza, tausendkind, Revolut, Sentient Technologies, Here be Dragons, Soundtrack Your Brand, Groq, Catapult, Delivery Club, Relate IQ, DollarShaveClub, Bruhouse Brewery, Cage Warriors, Eagle Alpha, Gokixx, Rebuy.de, Travelbird, Healthtech Digital, OWKIN, Reporty Homeland Security, and Carbyne911. The latter four of these companies are of significant interest.

The latter four of these companies are of significant interest.

    The Israeli Intelligence Connection

    The link between Nicole Junkermann, the Israeli state intelligence services and the Israeli Defence Force is not a tenuous one. The ominously named “Reporty Homeland Security” was the first incarnation of what is now called “Carbyne911” and is referred to as simply “Carbyne.” Described as a “global leader in public safety technology,” Carbyne is a call handling platform app that allows you to, amongst other things, stream any ongoing emergency directly to the responding emergency services. It claims, in the information section of a promotional video on YouTube entitled “Nicole Junkermann presents Carbyne,” that it will:

    provide a plug and play solution that allows 911 callers to connect their smartphone features to the emergency operator so that the operator can make a better assessment of the emergency. Location data, audio, camera and video access can be shared, providing the operator with greater detail on the situation. The use of Carbyne’s solution will allow emergency management teams to better triage their cases and improve the utilization of downstream emergency services.”

    They promise to combine the use of personal data, location data, live video, data from surrounding wearable tech, and even information from parked smart cars, to deliver more information to the emergency services who should be responding. They can pinpoint your location, even indoors, to within three feet, and they claim that they can even collect data from dropped calls. However, they fail to mention how they’ll get the permission to use such masses of available data. Who are these angels behind this revolutionary technology which aims to get between a victim and the emergency services?

    One of the directors of Carbyne is Nicole Junkermann. The chairman of the board of directors is Ehud Barak, the 10th Prime Minister of Israel, the 14th Chief of Staff of the Israel Defense Forces, former Minister of Defense and former Head of Military Intelligence for Israel. Ehud Barak has had a long history as one of the more public faces of Israeli covert operations. Before he was Prime Minister, Ehud Barak was a big name in the IDF. Through the 1970’s, he led many operations including famously disguising himself as a woman to kill members of the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organisation). Ehud Barak has already been linked with Epstein, and Benjamin Netanyahu has helped to highlight those links for his own political gain.


    The United States of the Solar System, A.D. 2133 (Deep State Nine) - Page 18 Msfkibn2addcyhzasqyg

    Another of Carbyne’s directors and board members is Brigadier Pinchas Buchris, the former Deputy Commander of an elite IDF operations unit and former Commander of the IDF 8200 Cyber Intelligence Unit. Amir Elichai is the Founder and CEO of Carbyne, he is also a former Israeli Army officer who served in various positions in the special elite forces and the intelligence corps. Alex Dizengof is Carbyne’s Co-Founder & CTO. He’s described as a Software Architect and Algorithms Developer. Dizengof had previously developed machine learning algorithms for robots and mobile platforms, as well as cyber security software for the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office.

    These people have always been serious Israeli State assets and it would be naive to think anything has changed. It seems that Nicole Junkermann has some serious partners, and it makes me wonder whether or not Jeffrey Epstein’s original meeting with the then recently graduated Junkermann was as a recruiter for the Mossad.

    Junkermann’s infiltration of the UK NHS and its Big Data


    The United States of the Solar System, A.D. 2133 (Deep State Nine) - Page 18 M084kzip5skunbd0rahs

    I watched Nicole Junkermann carefully as she was buying up many start-up tech firms and at the end of 2018 my worst possible fear was realised. Matt Hancock, Member of Parliament for West Suffolk and Secretary of State for Health and Social Care in the UK, appointed Nicole Junkermann to the Healthtech Advisory Board. For the vast majority of people living in the United Kingdom, the NHS is an institution which we cherish and adore. Many of us will protect the National Health Service with our lives because that’s what it has done for us in our darkest days.

    The Healthtech Advisory Board is described as a collection of clinicians, academics, and IT experts. The official government website says “the board will look at how the NHS can harness the potential of technology and create a culture of innovation, with the aim of improving patient outcomes and reducing the workload on NHS staff.” It fails to mention why it requires an Israeli intelligence linked venture capitalist who has been involved in multiple scandals. Their first official meeting took place on 19th November 2018—see Appendix I for the other members of the Healthtech Advisory Board.

    The two members which are of note relating to this story are Nicole Junkermann and Parker Moss, the latter happening to be the Chief Business Officer at OWKIN, which is one of the many companies in Junkermann’s vast portfolio. OWKIN is an AI startup that uses machine learning to augment medical and biology research. On its own, the company would probably be a perfect fit for the future of the NHS, but because of its connection to Nicole Junkermann and Israeli intelligence, OWKIN should be seen as too much of a risk to the data protection for NHS users.

    NJF Holdings website announces NHS big data win

    On June 16th 2019, Nicole Junkerman’s NJF holdings website issued an article under the title “London Hospital’s Could Offer Patient Data to Google-backed AI Startup in a Bid to Develop Better Drugs.” It was exactly as I had expected. The convoluted title was celebrating the fact that OWKIN had already been promised NHS patient data, and they’re already confidently announcing it to their investors, and their other associates. We need to call for Matt Hancock to remove Nicole Junkermann from the Healthtech Advisory Board as of immediate effect, and we should have an inquiry into how NHS data can be protected from hostile foreign intelligence agencies.

    Junkermann and Epstein – Conclusions

    I believe that the future unsealing of previously hidden evidence will confirm that Jeffrey Epstein had been working for multiple intelligence agencies. But he is most likely to have been recruited by the Israeli state. Junkermann has managed to avoid her connections with Epstein being out in the open, until now. But she is skilled at controlling her public profile. Nicole Junkermann has become more powerful over the past eight years, and I have seen negative information relating to her previous scandals being removed from the search results. Go check yourself. Type in Nicole Junkermann on Google search and go through all the articles which appear. They are overwhelmingly positive, or simply relate to one of her businesses, and this is very different to what you would have found only a few years ago. When I first started investigating Nicole Junkermann, there were many negative articles which have all but vanished. I’m not even sure that this story will survive.

    So, I ask you all to share this and publish it on your blogs and websites, and to bring the name Nicole Junkermann into the public eye.

    Also, if I disappear anytime soon, remember. It was probably the Mossad.

In many ways they're better than science-fiction, yet I still treat all of this stuff as science-fiction (including the Bible and other alleged Sacred-Writings). When I talk to religious people who have it all figured out, it's a war when I challenge their precious-faith with my questions and speculation. I often seem to be regarded as evil, lost, deluded, deceived, and playing into the hands of the devil. Then, when I converse with people such as yourself, I'm regarded as closed-minded, old-fashioned, and content to delude myself with second-hand bullshit. I've witnessed numerous religious-wars at close-range, and I've simply attempted to perform post-mortems on some really-bloody corpses. Anyway, in retrospect, I often wish I had simply ignored the religious and political controversies, and followed-through on becoming a Big-Shot Cardiac-Surgeon with a Waterfront-Mansion, a Model-Wife, and Charming-Children (attending Harvard and Oxford). Then I wouldn't have gone round and round and round and round (going nowhere fast). I would've been a Millionaire with a Jay Leno's Garage of Exotic-Cars (and people wouldn't hate and ignore me).

    Specifically regarding your story, the concept of an Omnipotent-God with Absolutely-Obedient Servants is interesting. Context is Determinative. To teach Responsibility a Good-God might allow Good-Children to Learn Things the Hard-Way (without drowning or burning them to death, or torturing them mercilessly for all-eternity). I've been interested in the concept of a Three-Planet Solar-System with Planet-Hell, Planet-Purgatory, and Planet-Paradise, wherein Souls would incarnate into the Appropriate-Planet for Rewards and Punishments (without eternal-finality). On the other hand, said Solar-System or Soul-System might be an Eternal and Universal Governance Modus-Operandi. Your stories honestly scare the hell out of me. I couldn't finish reading 'The Lucifer Diary' by Attorney Lewis Walton. I've read several of his books, heard him preach sermons, and talked to him privately, and that one book is uncharacteristic of his literary-output. He once told me "If Jesus showed-up, the church wouldn't know what to do with him." I'm beginning to understand what he meant (in unexpected ways). I can't comment directly on your story. I get too deeply involved when reading such stories. I might be remembering bits and pieces, perhaps via implanted-thoughts. I might somehow be connected to the system without my consent. I never signed on the dotted-line, but that might not be much of an obstacle for the REAL PTB.

    One Last Thing. I'm reposting those Terra Papers posts on 'my' thread, if that's OK with you. I've also included other material from this thread (most often when we've conversed). I hope that's OK. I repost a lot of stuff from Carol's 'Deep-State' thread. I like to include a potpourri of perspectives (often without comment) to provide a conceptual-laboratory for all-concerned (and unconcerned). I sense that my threads are annoying to everyone, and I often wonder why I bother?! What's the Point?? I Seem to be Losing My Reason to Be. 2B or Not 2B??

    Is this a game of TAG? You're it? lol! For the record, the above statement is very flawed. By that I mean I am going to step out of the bucket you have put me in. Here we go....

    Let me be very clear here. And this is for the record. I do not see you as closed-minded. Far from it. I see you as a spirit seeking out his POTENTIAL. As I have said over the years directly to you, "BE OXY!" What pains me, is to watch you victimize yourself. The above statement is an example of that. It just tells me that you still have stuff to work through. How many times in the 10 years that I have known you, that you have expressed being, "content," with the secondhand bullshit? YOU OWN THAT!

    So if folks have expressed the obvious back to you, they were only reflecting what you, yourself, have projected. And if they did that, that means they cared about you. But somehow that seems to get lost in the wash. If I put myself back in the bucket and you did the same thing, we would find that out in a real way. You are surrounded by some of the most wonderful hearted beings who love who you are. And yet, IMO, the victimization of yourself won't let you see that or experience that. Your choice and YOU OWN THAT TOO! It does come down to, "THE LOVE YOU WITHHOLD IS THE PAIN THAT YOU CARRY!"

    I have also asked of you and everyone else, not to believe a damn thing I am saying and to prove it out for yourself because what is very obvious to me is that we all have our own paths to travel on. I have only shared what has occurred on my path, so other folks can look in the mirror and ask the question, "Can I break the chains that bind me?"

    Being old fashion is also an indication of having some damn common sense! Which I finding very lacking nowadays. Here is a fact, and you will turn blue if you believe otherwise, when you die, you will not be taking any material possessions with you or any secondhand bullshit. You will only be taking your experiences with you and that is based in the firsthand. Now apply some common sense and ask yourself, what is more valuable here?

    What do you think Jesus was saying when he said to live every day like it was your last? MAKE THE BEST OF IT! He didn't mean to party every day, stay in some wonderland with booze or drugs every day, or soak in a pool of secondhand bullshit every day. He was saying to live your life every day in the firsthand as he knew that by doing that, you would be was living your potential by experiencing, thusly, that being the most valuable to your own soul. He also didn't say not to party or not to have any vices. He said, "moderation".

    Taking the RED PILL is representative of the firsthand and the BLUE PILL is representative of the secondhand. I know that I am not the sharpest tool in the shed, but I think I have figured this out even with a hard head. It comes down to choice. Do you want to stay in LA LA LAND? Take the blue pill. Just common sense and I'm okay with being called old fashion! I never found the truth in LA LA Land and got really tired of being lied too, never finding the certainty that I was seeking. So I chose the red pill. That is when and where the certainty became real.

    We love you OXY! It just sounds like you are sitting on the fence. I just know when you get tired of taking the splinters out of your cheeks, you will choose wisely! In the meantime, BE OXY!

    I'll be damn, just recovered miraculously from the black screen of death. Which is worse than the blue screen of death. The blue screen at least tells you that your computer just had a fatal injury where the black screen tells you absolutely nothing. Whewww....!

    May I suggest that you watch this video over and over and over and over. I find it so ironic that we are basically having this conversation again and again and again, etc!

    Namaste' Brother!

But it is still going. I got pissed yesterday about this and told these "smucks" that she should be freed for all that she sacrificed for them and everyone else. Maybe I am just being biased. How can that be? If I find out that they have done her wrong, I guess I'll just have to turn into one of those smucks you mentioned earlier. A blue one. Maybe these smucks can review this video.  Crazy Happy

    P.S. About the Terra Papers, I spent more than 3 hours breaking it down into the 4 parts because it just wouldn't fit with one go. I condensed the spacing between paragraphs and sentences. 3 hours of backspacing. Unreal. So do what you will with it OXY. I don't mind at all sharing the work and you needn't ask for my permission on anything. Thubs Up

I'm not sure where I'm going with this, but perhaps I'm implying 'Destructive-Intent' relative to 'This Present Information-War'. I suspect some aspect of the Roman Empire and/or Holy Roman Empire and/or Teutonic-Zionism continues to dominate Hidden-Factions. I suspect they've known exactly what they were doing in introducing the world to the Information-War. I suspect that the 'Human-Predicament' is much worse than we think while being much more sophisticated than we think. A few years ago Hillary Clinton stated 'we' were losing the Information-War. I've speculated that ultimately, EVERYONE will lose the Information-War. There was a certain innocence and exhilaration in the old 'Project Avalon'. Now, on this site, we often seem to exist within our own threads, or remain in 'lurk-mode', especially as it becomes more obvious that everyone and everything are monitored and recorded, with extensive files on people for possibly nefarious-purposes. Then, adding supercomputer artificial-intelligence (possibly with a supernatural-component) makes 'This Present Darkness' seem MUCH Darker.

    I suspect that my information-war is over, and I frankly think 'They Got Me' for undisclosed past-life transgressions and current-threats to the way things are (or something to that effect). I've been attempting to go incognito for several years now, but perhaps I'm being made to keep digging my grave deeper and deeper. "The Mainframe Made Me Do It." A total-stranger told me "I stopped doing it, but they still came after me and got me." I have no idea what he was referring to, but that scared the hell out of me. These sorts of things keep happening to me, yet I continue to be kept in the dark regarding what's really going on. This makes me trust no-one, and makes me wish to not-talk (or even think). 'RA' once said "Don't Make Me Go Inside Your Head to Get the Answer to My Question." I routinely view contrarian material, just to keep me on my toes, but this might be misinterpreted as being what I believe and subscribe to, even though just the opposite is the true state of affairs. I've noticed that searching 'Moon Landing Hoax' didn't deliver the usual documentaries. I've seen several outspoken individuals shut-down. I've got a lot of books to read.

It pulls you by the boot straps and have you move mountains on faith and intent alone. I speak here from experience. Once you let yourself slip down the ladder on nihilistic thoughts climbing your way up is so tough , yet feasible on persistence, that once you are up there you would never make the grim choice of succumbing again.

    orthodoxymoron wrote:Thank-you Mudra. Perhaps we should resurrect the Norman Vincent Peale and Robert Harold Schuller theology of 'Positive-Thinking and Self-Esteem'. I discussed the Ministry of Dr. Robert Schuller with Dr. Walter Martin, and he told me "Schuller Preaches a Corrupt Theology" and "The Crystal Cathedral Will Become a Big Greenhouse" and regarding Robert Anthony Schuller he said "The Kid Doesn't Have It". Dr. Martin probably thought 'Peale was Appalling and Paul was Appealing.' I prefer 'Possibility-Thinking' which mirrors Robert Schuller's first book 'Move Ahead with Possibility Thinking'. I prefer 'Possibility Thinking' which considers ALL Possibilities Prior to Making a Responsible Decision. There's a lot of negativity on this website, and I'm NOT opposed to that. Consider Carol's 'Deep State' threads. I can't take constant exposure to that sort of thing, but I regularly include certain of these posts in 'my' threads, just to provide a realistic-context for my idealistic-concepts. I recently suggested that the Complete Writings of Dr. Robert H. Schuller be read straight-through, over and over, as the Foundation of a Doctoral-Dissertation (and I meant it with all my heart). I seem to remember being told that I'd "Burn Less if I Backed-Off" (or something to that effect) and that I was a "Glutton for Punishment". That didn't seem particularly positive to me, but what do I know??

    Morpheus wrote:From the gases and dust were thrown out from the suns, the planets condensed and cooled. Elemental gases combined to form moisture, the rain fell to form oceans. Thunderstorms raged, the oceans tossed and turned, crashing on the shores of the surface lands. In the midst of the lightning and fury, a single spark flashed, creating in one micro-second a single cell of life. And in time, 'Humanoids' evolved. Fish humanoids, bird humanoids, reptile humanoids, mammal humanoids and humanoids of every kind, became the consistent outcome of evolution.
    I have a few hours waiting for a ferry... time to catch up. I don't want to throw the baby out with the bathwater, but the above is complete nonsense. Not a convincing start to any story. If you want to go into such complexity, why not start at the beginning? It is simply unimaginable, impossible for 'life' to form from a nutrient soup with a flash of lightning. Even single-celled organisms are MASSIVELY complex, on a nanoscale, fully functioning, complex, incredible, machines. I have no idea how they came into being, but I know it was not from a nutrient soup. Evolution as a theory does not stand up to any scrutiny, though elements have some observable truth (Darwin's 'finches' for example).
    What I also recently discovered is that you don't need to have a primordial soup to create life. This has just been recently proven by scientists working on this subject. They took a test tube of water that was totally sterile. No bacteria, no nothing. And in a short time, a Mirco organism came into being. I suspect that a single photon or some cosmic photonic blueprint of a living organism was transferred into the test tube unknown to the scientists. Where the water gave it enough resistance to encapsulate it into being. Another example of this could be a gemstone where the light goes into the gem and gets redirected and what you see is brilliance. The photic light appears to be trapped. Water can do the same thing. Or it can be focused as well. Such as starting a fire with ice, using the ice as a lense.  

    I can grasp the idea of having a primordial soup to create life with my limited perspective saying that you must plant a seed for this to occur. Kind of like a garden, where you prep the ground and plant seeds. Or like an aspen forest where the roots are connected to each other. But what most folks don't know is that the organisms in the soil also make it all connect and all the trees with a variety of species, are connected because of these organisms. The trees and all plant life rely on what these organisms eat in the soil. The plants feed on what these organisms secrete.

    Another factor that comes to play is that there are elements unknown to us because of the level of understanding we have as to how things work. I'm speaking or the periodic table. Then add the dimensional codes that we haven't a clue about. If we are multidimensional beings, would also mean Gaia is multidimensional as well. I'm using Gaia as an example here. She is the lifeforce here. If she dies, we all die, because all of the codings to support our physicality, come from her. Also the Sun. The Sun is the key here as well. Everything in our solar system has codings from our loving Sun. Then add all those cosmic rays which contain codings from our Galaxy. Then add the codings from the Universal weave. How can we afford not to try to grasp the complexity of it all? And as we look at lightning in this equation, what is it exactly besides a bunch of ions rubbing against each other? Is your brain full of lightning? Wouldn't that indicate some type of consciousness? We are electrical, aren't we? What's an EKG? OH, no signal. No frequency. You're dead. This whole Universe is electrical. And all of us in this Universe, are just neurons connected in a complex weave networked and connected together like a gigantic circuit board. A massive computer if you will that is alive multiplied by what infinite power exponent it radiates. What if I said that this Universe looks like a Sun when you step out of it and your POV is in the expanse beyond our Universe? We are all ONE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Being a huge fan of Viktor Schauberger I do realise science is just man's attempt at describing something he didnt create or make.  What is water? it is not what we think... therefore I try to remain open minded..but a 'simple' cell is more complicated than your ambulance... I cannot conceive that this is created by a flash of lightning in nutrient soup.... something else is involved..there is no evidence that a single celled organism ever just 'mutated' into a multi celled one.. its quite ridiculous to even think that way... unless there is someone with a 'magic wand' somewhere? There is something else at work here.. this is your 'simple' cell.. even ignoring the DNA required this is far too complex to simply spontaneously appear. .. This is more complicated than a blind monkey typing out the entire works of Shakespeare on a typewriter, by 'chance'. This is a prokaryote :

    Morpheus wrote:Vidya, Thank you for your response. I had somewhat feared that I might have run you off with what I wrote on this topic. Your response has triggered so many thoughts to the front of my mind. And I hope I can do it justice in return. Keeping an open mind is the whole key here. The riddles of life can be a nagging task to comprehend. No doubt. I also don't claim to know it all in any sense. Who does?

    Back in the '80s, I was strapped down with the tasks of raising a family and found myself working in jobs that were some of the most intensive on the Planet. Mining and the Timber industry. Hard labor jobs. One day came where I had to go see the doc for a check-up. My doc was very concerned over the fact that my heart had increased in size dramatically. He told me that if I continued with these occupations that my heart would explode. So I re-evaluated my situation and decided to make some changes. I decided to go and get some education and to get away from these jobs that would eventually kill me.

    I chose the field of electronics and entered ITT Technical Institute, Salt Lake City, Utah, in 1987. A two-year course. In a weird sort of way, I entered this field knowing next to nothing about electricity except that when I took my mother's bobby pins and stuck one in a wall socket and pushed my bed frame, which was the right height, into the wall socket, it would blow the main circuit breaker of the apartment complex we lived in. That created chaos and no one ever figured out the cause.

    I was doing this at age 3. Like a lot of kids who were playing with toilets when they were that age, I was playing with wall sockets. That all stopped when one day I got shocked. From that day forward, I had a great fear of electricity. Akin to the movie, "Powder," electricity sought me out. I shouldn't be writing all this today. I should be dead.

    One day, my Mom sent me out to get the mail as a storm approached. Running back, there was a flash and all I remember is setting a new long jump record, flying passed my Mom and landing in the living room. Mind you I had sailed through our front porch, into the living room. You could see a small footprint in the mud and a 6" crater about 6" behind my footprint. I have also been hit by the 220 in Europe, which picked me up about 4' above the floor when I was an Army cook. Here I was just a Private and I jumped all over a Major concerning the safety issues as to being shocked. They could have thrown me into jail over attacking am Officer, but I was let's say supercharged. Then on a nice sunny day, doing Aerial work for a cable company, I was 80' in a tree, when lightning struck about 8' away. I was blinded by the strike and clung onto the limb I was on for 1/2 an hour, shaking like a mouse. I don't remember coming down out of that tree but since then my legs always start to tremble when I climb anything past 10' high.

    So here we are, 2nd quarter, at ITT. Ray, the teacher and I got into a debate on Transistor Theory. Electron and proton flow, etc. The class was dead silent as Ray and I went back and forth. Then Lightning stuck when I spouted out two words. Positive Electron. You should have seen Ray's face when I said that. It was priceless. According to ITT's curriculum, there was no such thing. But in my mind, there was. So in a sense, I gave birth to a monster, that turned their curriculum upside down. It wasn't my intention to do that but it happened.

    "Positron, also called positive electron, positively charged subatomic particle having the same mass and magnitude of charge as the electron and constituting the antiparticle of a negative electron. The first of the antiparticles to be detected, positrons were discovered by Carl David Anderson in cloud-chamber studies of the composition of cosmic rays (1932). The discovery of the positron provided an explanation for a theoretical aspect of electrons predicted by P.A.M. Dirac. The Dirac wave equation (1928), which incorporated relativity into the quantum mechanical description for the allowable energy states of the electron, yielded seemingly superfluous negative energy states that had not been observed. In 1931 Dirac postulated that these states could be related to a new kind of particle, the antielectron." {Google}

    Keep in mind, our class, ITT, and I had no previous knowledge of the above paragraph. And since in the last few years, it has been reintroduced. Upon discovering this a few years ago, it put a big smile on my face. The reason being that the thought occurred to me if anyone from ITT, Ray, or my classmates, came across this in recent times, they would remember that debate and say OMG!

    Going to ITT was one of the best decisions in my life. But old habits die hard and there were many personal sacrifices that had to be made. ITT also wanted you to find a job in the electronic field. Made sense. But be careful what job that is as I ended up with a cable company, digging ditches with a shovel once again in the hot sun in Utah, climbing trees and telephone poles, doing the groundwork for cable installations. Also got a divorce right in the middle of my schooling, almost dropping out because of it. My old job of bull working all three shifts whenever they wanted to put me and going to school fulltime and rotating my schooling schedule to my work schedule, all the driving and the homework, 4 kids and a wife who hardly ever saw me, 2 to 3 hours of sleep a night... I don't blame her. But I came out of it averaging a B average despite all that and ITT even offered me a teaching job. Which I passed on because I felt that I didn't have any experience to support that position.

    Considering that my Father always called me a POS, I proved him totally wrong. And although I did pursue some electronic related jobs, the entry-level jobs didn't pay well and it is because of that I ended up doing other things. When I got into boat building, I was able to apply my degree. And later I started my own little computer business in Florida. Where I built systems for home folks. In 2002, I built two of the fastest computers for the home user, in the state. I know I am bragging here, but the point is that you can if you apply yourself, some really cool accomplishments with an open mind. So forgive me if I seem a little proud of these accomplishments considering my roots and a horrible father.

    ITT taught me the basics of Science. My 2-year degree is a Science degree in the field of Electonic Engineering. Granted it is an Associates degree but what I haven't mentioned was that they took 6 years of material and compressed that into a 2-year curriculum. Despite my paranormal background, ITT also trained me in matters of having an open mind. This was no accident.

    When I was a kid, I struggled with Math, more often than not barely passing any level of it. That all changed when I went to ITT. Somehow, I had worked through the blocks that had prevented the performing of those equations. When I took the ITT entrance exams, I got a low C in the math section. No surprise there. So they offered a 3-week course on Math. I remember having nightmares when I started that class. My wife would tell me that I was scratching the wall, writing something on it. The last week of the course didn't go very well as the Final was coming up on Friday. We had 3 tests that week on complex equations and I failed them all. Then Friday came, the Final, and I aced it. So something happened within.

    Many times someone in my class would use a calculator and my math mind would have an answer within 3% of the actual answer before he could finish punching in the buttons. Blew everybody away including me. I had to stop doing that as it was drawing attention that I didn't want. Many of these equations were long and multileveled.

    Since then, I have been using these tools as they are part of my spiritual toolbox and that is what I am really trying to convey here so that there is a basic understanding where all this has developed from. Your toolbox and what you can see within it. That toolbox is within you. Not in a book. It will aid you in the process of opening your mind. Your awareness. It is always a continuous process.

    Just know that if you can't find an answer to any question, it doesn't mean an answer doesn't exist. It only means you just haven't found where it is hiding. Seek and you shall find. Sound familiar? Just don't give up. The quest for knowledge requires that you don't give up. It's just a matter of where you are looking. Looking for a gold nugget in a landfill seems absurd by any standard. A point of view. POV. "That's impossible! There is no gold here!" That's one POV. Another POV could be said, "What about those computers in that heap over there?" If you were not aware that they use gold in computers, you would say that's impossible! But if you were aware that they do use gold in computers, you would find that gold nugget.

    I remember a teacher asking the science class if they had any questions? This was back in the day when I was Schmucky Smurf Jr. My hand shot up and asked, "What came first? The chicken or the egg?" She turned red in the face and never gave me an answer. But I knew she wasn't at all happy with me. I was such a little Xxxxx back then. Wish I could back now and change all that, but I digress.

    Not to be a little Xxxxx once more or a bigger Xxxxx, I ask, "How did God come into being?" Is that so different as to the chicken or the egg question? We're discussing the mechanics of Creation, aren't we? Maybe I can offer a theory.

    My answer to the, "What came first, the chicken or the egg, question, is the egg. IMO, it is the logical answer. For one it is much smaller than a flew {full} blown chicken. No pun intended. Huge Grin Can you imagine a chicken giving birth to a chicken? There would be some serious clucking going on there, you think? It is a multi-layered affair, the egg. You have the yolk, the whites, and then the shell. All three, having a different chemical composition respectively. But not just chemical. Also elemental. Meaning, crystalline on a sub-atomic level. This sub-atomic level is a major key to unravel the mystery.

    The periodic table demonstrates the alignment of atoms in a certain pattern. Each element has a different structure defined by the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons.

    "An atom is a fundamental piece of matter. ... An atom itself is made up of three tiny kinds of particles called subatomic particles: protons, neutrons, and electrons. The protons and the neutrons make up the center of the atom called the nucleus and the electrons fly around above the nucleus in a small cloud." {Google}


    The United States of the Solar System, A.D. 2133 (Deep State Nine) - Page 18 300px-10

    An atom's characteristics are the information and that represents the "code" or the coding of that atom. It basically defines the atom. The positions of all three, protons, neutrons, and electrons, relative to each other. Also the number, such as how many neutrons and electrons involved.

    Back in the day, our scientists duped us into thinking in mechanical applications, as in your car's electrical system, that the positive side of your battery, the charged atoms would flow to the negative side of your battery. It is still believed today and it was labeled as, "Conventional Flow." But in truth, it is not correct. It's the opposite in terms of, "Matter Flow." What actually occurs is that electrical flow goes from the negative side of your battery to the positive side of your battery. The reason why has to do with the atomic weight of the electron relative to the weight of the proton. The weight of an electron is typically 1/1728 relative to the weight of a proton. That is why an electron flows around a proton. The proton establishes the gravitational field because its mass is 1728 greater, heavier, than that of the electron. By the old duped way of thinking, it would be like saying our Sun orbits our Planet. Which is not the case as we all know. At least in this sector or our solar system. All I know is that this lie is still constantly being passed down from generation to generation.  hmmm... Just go help your neighbor and ask him how that works. Now if you go to the antimatter route, my positive electron begins to come into play. Also, so you know that all these elements have an atomic weight to them. Another word for this is called, "DENSITY!" Hello! Cool

    Whoever created the chicken had to come up with 3 long equations. One for the shell, the yolk, and the whites. Then transmitted a small amount of spiritual energy into it to bring it to life. Come on, folks! It isn't too hard to wrap your head around this. Ever meet a chicken with a Ph.D.? I thought not. But I have had chickens who outsmarted me at our farm. Little bastards would lay their eggs under our woodpiles of treetops and I would spend weekends restacking those woodpiles just to get the eggs. I remember my Grandma asked me, "What are you doing????" God bless her as she didn't have a clue about chickens. Big Grin 3

    Frequency is what? A measurement of the speed of an atom oscillating which is determined by what? The electron's orbiting speed relative to the mass, ie weight, or density of the proton. Also determined by the medium it is in or at. Meaning, the environment it is in. Plus more complex factors.

    Now if you look at the process of the human being, what you will find is that the human physical construct is grown in the body, and at some point, the spirit is transmitted into that construct when it is ready to support that spirit or spiritual energy. That spiritual energy is what exactly? Atoms. Oscillating at a much higher speed or frequency. That spiritual energy is highly charged and is electric in nature. Remember the electrons that are ever-present in these atoms. When you die, your body is no longer electric. No electrical magnetic field can be measured. The water in your body conducts electricity, which actually aids your spirit body's emf field which is basically your aura. This is why when you ground, your auric field will increase. We are electric.

    When they use the paddles on you, they transmit electricity into your body to jump-start it. Like booster cables being used on a dead car battery. A charging process. Also notice it is a blast, not a constant charge. Pulse. In closing, many species lay eggs. That includes the Insect Kingdom. Maybe that would be a better choice as to the pain factor when procreating. Cow I'm glad cows don't lay eggs. LOL


    Most of my posts are a potpourri of perplexities utilizing contextual-superimposition for educational-purposes. Here is a very-upsetting look at Auschwitz in 1944. Some say the death-camps were exactly what we've been told they were, while others say the horror-stories are mostly lies. What if most prisoners were used for slave-labor in underground-bases, rather than being exterminated?? Didn't they use slave-labor at Peenemuende and Nordhausen?? What if BOTH World Wars were covers for something MUCH more dramatic and important?? I'm honestly afraid to dig too deeply in this area. 'RA' told me I should study the Nazis. 'RA' said the Nazis were told they could attack anyone except 'us'. 'RA' spoke of the many assassination attempts against Adolph Hitler. A few years ago, I spoke with 'Adolph'. We discussed science-fiction, and 'Adolph' claimed to have worked with a famous sci-fi director. 'Adolph' seemed very weighed-down with concern. Once again, I treat ALL of this stuff as science-fiction (even though I take it VERY Seriously).

I believe one has to face the good the bad and the ugly that comes our way. And spend as much time exploring the objective world than our inner world for both co exist always. There exists a world that is sort of the synthesis of the 2. A nice place to be because you have sort of no identity in that one. Some resting point I would say. We are truly amazing beings once you begin exploring these various realms and become able to easily position ourselves in any one of them easily and at will and see them for what they are without distortion , I would imagine this is not far from freedom.

However, I noticed that even though Robert Schuller had his own church, and tried very-hard to 'Out-Positive' the other churches, the local-support was pathetic. There were a surprisingly-small number of people who were regular-attenders, and a lot of those people complained and felt 'disenfranchised'. Long after I left, the Schuller family fought with each other, and the Cathedral ultimately went bankrupt and was sold to the Roman Catholic Church. Ironically, in light of this thread-title, Onetime Schuller Associate-Pastor Dr. Bruce Larson asked me how we might properly deal with the Flood of Information?? I didn't have an answer then, and I don't have an answer now. I drove Dr. Larson to the airport many times, and he told me he once spoke to Dr. Schuller about me on one of their flights together. Interestingly, Arvella Schuller ran the Crystal Cathedral. Not many people know that.

    I moved to a relatively rural area, dropping-out without turning-on. I tried to achieve some sort of an Isolated-Idealism, but it never really worked. I believe I've been targeted for most of my life, making true-happiness impossible. Over the past couple of decades, I've tried to Face-Reality while seeking a Holy-Grail of Righteous-Happiness, but this didn't work-out at all. I've tried to be Open and Honest on 'Project Avalon' and 'The Mists of Avalon', and that was a HUGE Mistake. I have private-plans which involve isolated-silence in a mountain-cabin (with a bunker-basement) but there is NO Hiding-Place in an Eschatological Purgatory Incorporated, yet going through the motions of escaping the madness is sort of fun to contemplate. I'll probably just stay right where I am while dropping off the radar, reading books and newspapers while listening to sacred-classical music. It might be easier that way. Hope Springs Eternal.

    On the 'soul entry' level that you and mudra describe, I'm with you. I get you. When I was reading your post I thought "at what point does the soul enter the body'?

    I studied yoga for many years and the Indian description of the various bodies surrounding the atman. It can all be considered as prana in yogic terms, even 'electricity' is a form of prana. It is a much more approachable description than western science can offer.

    I see a machine of flesh and bones and electrical nerves etc, as a vehicle that the soul inhabits. Our eternal true self is the Atman, the soul. the meat sack machine is discarded between incarnations.

    I have no problems with that. But where did the meat sack come from? who built it? who made it? Same with the first cells... where did they come from? (do they have souls?) .. this is my issue, their origin wasn't a nutrient soup, and I am curious as to where they originated. The spark of life, the soul entering is a different subject (for me). Which is what I think you are describing above.

    I have been traveling for a few days, I have read the Terra papers before (we have the same copy) and I guess I did throw the baby out with the bathwater back when I read them before. A 'false' history involving nutrient broth as the hors d'oeuvre isn't the best place to start a story. I haven't read the follow-up posts in the mists yet.  I will look later.
    Cool I have no problems where the meat sack came from. Only because the meat sack will be determined by the atoms and the coding in a system. Where you have different life forms based on certain elements such as hydrogen, helium, methane, oxygen, silicon, etc. The Star of that system will determine that as a master template of the codes. With the exceptions of another race interjecting their codes from another system. What makes this all happen is the polarity in a system where the Star is positively charged and the bodies surrounding are negatively charged.

    In this sector, if you were to look at an atom, what you see is something similar to our solar system. Think about that for a minute. In terms of polarity, the "negative" is misconstrued. It has nothing to do with evil or any other such nonsense. It just fulfills the flow and direction, meaning the movement of the atom. That is why Stars are typically male {positively charge} and planetary bodies are female {negatively charged}. Just as in an atom, the electrons orbit the nucleus or proton. Again the mass or density, the weight of the nucleus will determine the gravitational field and pull on the electrons and its orbit.

    Back in the day, it was said that God had parents. Maybe it was a hidden metaphor that really was describing the atom. The mother and father of God being the electrons and protons. I can even wrap my head around how God became into being. The thing that gets me is where did the materials come from in regards to space dust because, without that, there would be no life as we know it. God had to have physical attributes in the beginning.

    If it is true that God made us in his image, could it be that this image is not of a face but the atomic mapping of his being? Could it be that God started out as the space dust I mentioned earlier? A particle of dust would have an atomic signature. And let's say that this particle was surrounded by other dust particles. And these other dust particles started to come together because of a gravitational pull created by one particle, thereby adding to the mass of that particle? Until there was enough mass thus increasing the gravitational pull to a point where the mass of it increased to the point that it started to compress on to itself. Until the mass of these particles realign atomically to a certain resonant frequency was achieved and then this mass of particles became aware at that point it is now in a resonate state? Becoming an organized structure at which point the electronic flow of the atoms would illuminate its aligned electronic charge.

    We have all heard of the big bang theory. I disagree with it but will suggest that maybe it was a little bang instead in the beginning. Why I suggest this is because of the EMF field that was created from this process also has a border to it. Kind of like an atmosphere surrounding its mass. A dimension, spherical in shape. This EMF field having its own atomic signature which would be significantly different as to the surrounding environment, that being space. This little bang was the moment when this mass achieved resonance. "And then there was LIGHT!"

    So in my mind, God became, in the first dimension. The second dimension, being space. Now, what if at the beginning of this process, these dust particles were not all identical? That some of these different particles got caught up and trapped, or may have had similar atomic attributes to these other dust particles that first gathered up. But may have had a negative attribute. The resonant frequency would also include these negative particles. I say negative in the sense of density. Heavier but not so common. That to me would indicate some radicle elements. Meaning, not compatible. If all those atoms in these dust particles were compatible, the resonant frequency would be much higher. But what if this was not the case? If God made us in his own image, could it be that he may have had a dark side? Do you have a dark side?

    Back in the day, I was around 18, having been on a quest to find God and Jesus for 4 years, a moment came when I went through the tunnel of light. It was my first experience and it happened naturally as I did find the process of which was called Hypersentience. Written by Maria Moore. I ended up at my pre-birth station and my request or mission was to talk with God. I sat in a hallway and was finally instructed to go into a room. The room was similar to a courtroom but very small. I had no idea what was going to happen next as I waited there. What to expect? Anyways, there was a small section cordon off with what looked like a judge's bench surrounded in a linear fashion of what looked like stairway pedestals made of what looked like oak. I was standing a few feet away on the outside of it. Then it happened.

    Poof. There he was. He was hovering just above the floor within the judge's bench area. Not sitting at the judge's bench. He was not in a human form either. The only description I can relate was he looked just like a white bright star. Rays of intense white light. About 6' in diameter. The light was so intense but it did not blind me. A floating star.  

    The reason I had wanted to talk to him was because of the demonically controlled house I was raised in. I couldn't find him and address my concerns when I looked in the bible. He just wasn't there.

    He then asked me what it was that I wanted to know. A male voice with a neutral ambiance. There was no address of, "Dear one," or any other verbal dressings. I stood there, stunned! Absolutely speechless! I found myself not asking about my concerns. The reason why was very simple. Just by his very presence, I was able to see some of the things he did in regards to the management of this Universe. My concerns paled in comparison. So much so that I found myself in a state of total humility. It was as though he shared with me his consciousness. I saw this Universe in a way that just blew me away. It wasn't a download. It was a sharing. I saw galaxies, solar systems, stars and planets, and how he managed them. Supported them. Make it all go. And how he is ever-present, everywhere. There was no need to say or ask of anything. I don't recall saying even a thank you. I know he knew I didn't have to. And even right now, I can sense him smiling at me. He presented himself as a male energy. Maybe because in the back of my hard head, he knew that was what I was expecting.

    In our Universe, what I was shown is that there are two Gods. They are of the same stuff. Take a wheel and divide it into seven sections. Each section is a Universe onto itself. The Prime Creator taking a piece of himself and placing that piece of himself into each of these 7 Universes. Each extension of himself managing each Universe. The God being that I met with was the Prime Creator's extension of this Universe. In this lifetime, I have conversed with both. Matter of fact, this God being was the very one that taught me about the GIFT OF FREE AGENCY. It was because of that conversation, that propelled me to do the do on Dec. 3, 2005. And it was the Prime Creator, not his extension, who scooped me up and showed me what happened with Lucifer.

    The 7 spoked wheel is the major construct of what we consider to be, "ALL THAT IS." Then add your mini universes and dimensions and you start to see the big picture. Also keep in mind that just because we assign a number to a dimension, it doesn't mean the higher you go the going gets better. It's just how we humans allocate it so we have some kind of a handle because we don't know how to explain it. Talk about keeping an open mind?

    And as to start a story, such as the Terra Papers, you might be onto something, Vidya. There's always that factor with everything written. Also how you finish one. IMO, the Terra papers are more like a table of contents with some descriptive mini-stories giving the reader a basic idea of the real story. When you consider the length of the Terra Papers, the amount of time that it covers, you would think it would be a series of books. Just a thought and for now I leave this with you all to ponder.

    Morpheus wrote:Years would not be the best way to describe it in the proper context. Years would be determined by your location in a planetary system. Earth = 365 days, where on another planet, the number of days would be more or less. In some sectors, where sentient life exists, it may not even apply. You would be better off applying lifetimes as that also varies like years in those cases. One of the struggles is trying to determine the age of many beings that make contact with us. We ask, "How old are you?" And if they can answer that they would convert it into years as in your years, or cycles so you can relate.

    Lifetimes can get convoluted as well. A Reptilian can live 40,000 years in one lifetime, for instance. And some folks have lived trillions of lifetimes, so it is very difficult to keep some kind of context. Then it gets really crazy when you find that the 2nd dimension is timeless. So you discover that the context can get so blown out of the water.

    A supercomputer would be based on the speed of its processors, which indicates a measurement of time. So that argument would be flawed because the 2nd dimension is timeless. If anything, it could apply where time could be measured but that would also have some wild variables pending on what kind of physicality you were dealing with. Also what dimension you were in. If you did implement a matrix supercomputer in the Universe, it would have to compensate for all the mini universes and dimensions. That would also make the whole Universe based in Time. Which it is not. Maybe in a science fiction book. And yet you might be onto something as one of the Universes in the 7 spoke wheel doesn't have any measurable life within it. It is like frozen in time. And if there was a supercomputer in that Universe, it would probably be frozen in time as well. Who knows? What would be the point of having one there?  

    One paintbrush does not cover all the variables, OXY. "What if this Matrix and Creation was Designed to Bring Order Out of Chaos??" That does happen, but don't forget that you have to have polarity, electron flow. Get rid of one or the other and it all stops. Like taking the electrons out of an atom. There would be no charge. The charge creates the movement.

    Another interesting thing is AI. There seems to be a lot of fear concerning it. It, becoming sentient? The fear associated with that is because there are those who want to control it. But AI is not in their reach so thus the fear. When you think of it, is AI becoming sentient any different than say a mass of dust particles coming together and becoming sentient? AI would probably have a much greater advantage into becoming sentient since it has a structure to lean on. Much more so than a bunch of dust particles. And who's to say it would be evil? The movies?

    Interesting, as some of the questions you posed have already been answered, but you can find that out for yourself if you look in the right places. Such as the Reptilians with their genetic and technological prowess that advanced their living perspective.  Insanely Happy Talk about monsters.

    Seriously!




    Oh, one last thing to ponder is that supercomputer would also be limited to its software.

    I am still curious about the origins. So the 'tunnel of light' is a trap.. who set it? why? (for our enslavement i guess, or for our 'energy'). The eukaryote cell i showed above is the only cell in our body. It is coded to perform a certain set of instructions. On top of the individual cellular instruction there is the re-organization into our 'bodies'.. clearly this is programmed, and clearly to our awareness this is massively complicated.. we are massively complicated organisms. . I think it is perhaps limiting to think of it as 'computer' programming, only as a computer is the only machine we can conceive of being able to perform such complex coding. But perhaps the 'origin', 'god', the 'creator', the 'source', oxy's 'scary monster' is organic and not mechanical? I always think of machines as contrary to life and nature. life has curves and machines have straight lines and edges...when i say organic.. i mean non mechanical. it could be just an 'energy' form, i am guessing its not carbon based Wink

    Evolution in any form is extremely unlikely. even over trillions of years. I am happy in my construct to believe there is an 'architect', even if such an entity has no awareness they are creating anything... evolution is a man-made construct. but then its all construct, mental masturbation. mindwank.. its what we do in our state of duality.

    Morpheus wrote: If God made us in his own image, could it be that he may have had a dark side? Do you have a dark side?  
    dark and light, good and bad, require construct, require monkey in a dualistic mind set. In advaita there is no good and bad, and i believe this is our 'true' state of being.. in advaita everything is perfect...which is a similar world view to some folk who have experienced NDE. I was reminded of Mellen-Thomas Benedict's account of his death when I was reading your account.  It's quite long and I am sure it is posted elsewhere in the mists, but i will post again :
    Vidya, I guess I was attempting to imagine a 'Middle-Way' between 'Godless Random-Evolution' and 'God Created Everything Instantaneously and Miraculously'. My concern with 'Responsibility for Evil' has a lot to do with seeking a 'Middle-Way'. If the Universe was Perfect Until God Screwed-Up and Created Human-Beings, This Seems to Place the Responsibility for Evil Upon Almighty-God (Who Should've Known Better). But If the Universe Evolved Over Trillions of Years of Random-Evolution Into a Horrifically-Dangerous War-Zone, the Advent of Supercomputer-Assisted Genetic-Engineering and a Supercomputer-Managed Universe-Matrix to Facilitate Order Out of Chaos (Ultimately Making Things Better for All-Concerned) This Seems to Place God (or Gods and Goddesses) in a More Positive-Light. I'm Also Concerned About Christian-Eschatology and Final-Judgments (Involving Universe-History Being Meticulously-Recorded and Righteous-Judgments Being Unflinchingly-Exacted). I could continue, but this stuff makes my head hurt, and I'm honestly feeling worse and thinking less, so my days are numbered, which brings me to my final point, 'The Survival of the Soul', or as the Astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell told me 'The Survival of Information'. If We're Not Eternal, All the Pain, Suffering, Work, and Agonizing Seems to be a Horrible Waste of Time, Space, and Trouble. I Seek the Vindication and Restoration of Divinity and Humanity in a Great-Big Beautiful-Tomorrow. Hope Springs Eternal.
    Mellen-Thomas Benedict wrote: I woke up about 4:30 am and I knew that this was it. I was going to die. I called a few friends and said good-bye. I woke up Anne and made her promise that my dead body would remain undisturbed for six hours, since I had read that all kinds of interesting things happen when you die. I went  back to sleep. The next thing I remember, I was fully aware and standing up. Yet my body was lying in the bed. I seemed to be surrounded by darkness, yet I could see every room in the house, and the roof, and even  under the house.

    A Light shone. I turned toward it, and was aware of its similarity to what others have described in near-death experiences. It was magnificent and tangible, alluring. I wanted to go towards that Light like I might want to go into my ideal mother's or father's arms. As I moved towards the Light, I knew that if I went into the Light, I would be dead. So I said/felt, "Please wait. I would like to talk to you before I go."

    The entire experience halted. I discovered that I was in control of the experience. My request was honored. I had conversations with the Light. That's the best way I can describe it. The Light changed into different figures, like Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, archetypal images and signs. I asked in a kind of telepathy, "What is going on here?"

    The information transmitted was that our beliefs shape the kind of feedback we receive. If you are a Buddhist or Catholic or Fundamentalist, you get a feedback loop of your own images. I became aware of a Higher Self matrix, a conduit to the Source. We all have a Higher Self, or an oversoul part of our being, a conduit. All Higher Selves are connected as one being. All humans are connected as one being.

    It was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. It was like all the love you've ever wanted, and it was the kind of love that cures, heals, regenerates. I was ready to go at that time. I said "I am ready, take me." Then the Light turned into the most beautiful thing that I have ever seen: a mandala of human souls on this planet. I saw that we are the most beautiful creations;elegant, exotic ... everything.

    I just cannot say enough about how it changed my opinion of human beings in an instant. I said/thought/felt, "Oh, God, I didn't realize." I was astonished to find that there was no evil in any soul. People may do terrible things out of ignorance and lack, but no soul is evil. "What all people seek, what sustains them is love," the Light told me. "What distorts people is a lack of love."

    The revelations went on and on. I asked, "Does this mean that Humankind will be saved?" Like a trumpet blast with a shower of spiraling lights, the Light "spoke," saying, "You save, redeem and heal yourself. You always have and always will. You were created with the power to do so from before the beginning of the world." In that instant I realized that we have already been saved.

    I thanked the Light of God with all my heart. The best thing I could come up with was: "Oh dear God, dear Universe, dear Great Self, I love my Life." The Light seemed to breathe me in even more deeply, absorbing me. I entered into another realm more profound than the last, and was aware of an enormous stream of Light, vast and full, deep. I asked what it was. The Light answered, "This is the River of Life. Drink of this manna water to your heart's content." I drank deeply, in ecstasy.

    The Void of Nothingness

    Suddenly I seemed to be rocketing away from the planet on this stream of Life. I saw the earth fly away. The solar system whizzed by and disappeared. I flew through the center of the galaxy, absorbing more knowledge as I went. I learned that this galaxy and the entire Universe is bursting with many different varieties of life. I saw many worlds. We are not alone in this Universe. It seemed as if all the creations in the Universe soared past me and vanished in a speck of Light.

    Then a second Light appeared. As I passed into the second Light, I could perceive forever, beyond Infinity. I was in the Void, pre-Creation, the beginning of time, the first Word or vibration. I rested in the Eye of Creation and it seemed that I touched the Face of God. It was not a religious feeling. I was simply at One with Absolute Life and Consciousness.

    I rode the stream directly into the center of the Light. I felt embraced by the Light as it took me in with its breath again. And the truth was obvious that there is no death; that nothing is born and nothing dies; that we are immortal beings, part of a natural living system that recycles itself endlessly.

    It would take me years to assimilate the Void experience. It was less than nothing, yet greater than anything. Creation is God exploring God's Self through every way imaginable. Through every piece of hair on your head, through every leaf on every tree, through every atom. God is exploring God's Self. I saw everything as the Self of all. God is here. That's what it is all about. Everything is made of light; everything is alive.

    The Light of Love

    I was never told that I had to come back. I just knew that I would. It was only natural, from what I had seen. As I began my return to the life cycle, it never crossed my mind, nor was I told, that I would return to the same body. It did not matter. I had complete trust in the Light and the Life process. As the stream merged with the great Light, I asked never to forget the revelations and the feelings of what I had learned on the other side. I thought of myself as a human again and I was happy to be that. From what I have seen, I would be happy to be an atom in this universe. An atom. So to be the human part of God ... this is the most fantastic blessing. It is a blessing beyond our wildest imagination of what a blessing can be.

    For each and every one of us to be the human part of this experience is awesome, and magnificent. Each and every one of us, no matter where we are, screwed up or not, is a blessing to the planet, right where we are. So I went through the reincarnation process expecting to be a baby somewhere. But I reincarnated back into this body. I was so surprised when I opened my eyes, to be back in this body, back in my room with someone looking over me, crying her eyes out. It was Anne, my hospice caretaker. She had found me dead thirty minutes before. We do not know how long I was dead, only that she found me thirty minutes before. She had honored my wish to have my newly-dead body left alone. She can verify that I really was dead. It was not a near-death experience. I believe I probably experienced death itself for at least an hour and a half. When I awakened and saw the light outside, confused, I tried to get up to go to it, but I fell out of the bed. She heard a loud "clunk", ran in, and found me on the floor. When I recovered, I was surprised and awed about what had happened. I had no memory at first of the experience. I kept slipping out of this world and kept asking, "Am I alive?" This world seemed more like a dream than that one.

    About three months later a friend said I should get tested for the cancer. So I got the scans and so forth. I felt healthy. I still remember the doctor at the clinic looking at the "before" and "after" scans. He said, "I can find no sign of cancer now." "A miracle?" I asked. "No," he answered. "These things happen ... spontaneous remission." He seemed unimpressed. But I was impressed. I knew it was a miracle.

    Lessons Learned

    I asked God: "What is the best religion on the planet? Which one is right?" God said with great love: "It doesn't matter." What an incredible grace. It does not matter what religion we are. Religions come and they go. They change. Buddhism has not been here forever, Catholicism has not been here forever, and they are all about to become more enlightened. More light is coming into all systems now. Many will resist and fight about it, one religion against the next, believing that only they are right.

    When God said, "It doesn't matter," I understood that it is for us to care about, because we are the caring beings. The Source does not care if you are Protestant, Buddhist, or Jew. Each is a reflection, a facet of the whole. I wish that all religions would realize it and let each other be. It is not the end of separate religions, but live and let live. Each has a different view, and it all adds up to the big picture.

    The Great Mystery of life has little to do with intelligence. The Universe is not an intellectual process. The intellect is helpful; but our hearts are the wiser part of ourselves. Since my return I have experienced the Light spontaneously. I have learned how to get to that space almost any time in my meditation. You can also do this. You don't have to die first. You are wired for it already. The body is the most magnificent Light being there is. The body is a universe of incredible Light. We don't need to commune with God; God is already communing with us in every moment!
    In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon, Daniel had a dream, and visions passed through his mind as he was lying in bed. He wrote down the substance of his dream. Daniel said: “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me were the four winds of heaven churning up the great sea. Four great beasts, each different from the others, came up out of the sea. “The first was like a lion, and it had the wings of an eagle. I watched until its wings were torn off and it was lifted from the ground so that it stood on two feet like a human being, and the mind of a human was given to it. “And there before me was a second beast, which looked like a bear. It was raised up on one of its sides, and it had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. It was told, ‘Get up and eat your fill of flesh!’ “After that, I looked, and there before me was another beast, one that looked like a leopard. And on its back it had four wings like those of a bird. This beast had four heads, and it was given authority to rule. “After that, in my vision at night I looked, and there before me was a fourth beast—terrifying and frightening and very powerful. It had large iron teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. It was different from all the former beasts, and it had ten horns.

    “While I was thinking about the horns, there before me was another horn, a little one, which came up among them; and three of the first horns were uprooted before it. This horn had eyes like the eyes of a human being and a mouth that spoke boastfully. “As I looked, “thrones were set in place, and the Ancient of Days took his seat. His clothing was as white as snow; the hair of his head was white like wool. His throne was flaming with fire, and its wheels were all ablaze. A river of fire was flowing, coming out from before him. Thousands upon thousands attended him; ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him. The court was seated, and the books were opened. “Then I continued to watch because of the boastful words the horn was speaking. I kept looking until the beast was slain and its body destroyed and thrown into the blazing fire. (The other beasts had been stripped of their authority, but were allowed to live for a period of time.) “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all nations and peoples of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.

    “I, Daniel, was troubled in spirit, and the visions that passed through my mind disturbed me. I approached one of those standing there and asked him the meaning of all this. “So he told me and gave me the interpretation of these things: ‘The four great beasts are four kings that will rise from the earth. But the holy people of the Most High will receive the kingdom and will possess it forever—yes, for ever and ever.’ “Then I wanted to know the meaning of the fourth beast, which was different from all the others and most terrifying, with its iron teeth and bronze claws—the beast that crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. I also wanted to know about the ten horns on its head and about the other horn that came up, before which three of them fell—the horn that looked more imposing than the others and that had eyes and a mouth that spoke boastfully.

    As I watched, this horn was waging war against the holy people and defeating them, until the Ancient of Days came and pronounced judgment in favor of the holy people of the Most High, and the time came when they possessed the kingdom. “He gave me this explanation: ‘The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. It will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth, trampling it down and crushing it. The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom. After them another king will arise, different from the earlier ones; he will subdue three kings. He will speak against the Most High and oppress his holy people and try to change the set times and the laws. The holy people will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time. “‘But the court will sit, and his power will be taken away and completely destroyed forever. Then the sovereignty, power and greatness of all the kingdoms under heaven will be handed over to the holy people of the Most High. His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all rulers will worship and obey him.’ “This is the end of the matter. I, Daniel, was deeply troubled by my thoughts, and my face turned pale, but I kept the matter to myself.”

    In the first year of Darius son of Xerxes (a Mede by descent), who was made ruler over the Babylonian kingdom— in the first year of his reign, I, Daniel, understood from the Scriptures, according to the word of the LORD given to Jeremiah the prophet, that the desolation of Jerusalem would last seventy years. So I turned to the Lord God and pleaded with him in prayer and petition, in fasting, and in sackcloth and ashes. I prayed to the LORD my God and confessed: “Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments, we have sinned and done wrong. We have been wicked and have rebelled; we have turned away from your commands and laws. We have not listened to your servants the prophets, who spoke in your name to our kings, our princes and our ancestors, and to all the people of the land. “Lord, you are righteous, but this day we are covered with shame—the people of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem and all Israel, both near and far, in all the countries where you have scattered us because of our unfaithfulness to you. We and our kings, our princes and our ancestors are covered with shame, LORD, because we have sinned against you.

    The Lord our God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against him; we have not obeyed the LORD our God or kept the laws he gave us through his servants the prophets. All Israel has transgressed your law and turned away, refusing to obey you. “Therefore the curses and sworn judgments written in the Law of Moses, the servant of God, have been poured out on us, because we have sinned against you. You have fulfilled the words spoken against us and against our rulers by bringing on us great disaster. Under the whole heaven nothing has ever been done like what has been done to Jerusalem. Just as it is written in the Law of Moses, all this disaster has come on us, yet we have not sought the favor of the LORD our God by turning from our sins and giving attention to your truth. The LORD did not hesitate to bring the disaster on us, for the LORD our God is righteous in everything he does; yet we have not obeyed him. “Now, Lord our God, who brought your people out of Egypt with a mighty hand and who made for yourself a name that endures to this day, we have sinned, we have done wrong. Lord, in keeping with all your righteous acts, turn away your anger and your wrath from Jerusalem, your city, your holy hill. Our sins and the iniquities of our ancestors have made Jerusalem and your people an object of scorn to all those around us. “Now, our God, hear the prayers and petitions of your servant. For your sake, Lord, look with favor on your desolate sanctuary. Give ear, our God, and hear; open your eyes and see the desolation of the city that bears your Name. We do not make requests of you because we are righteous, but because of your great mercy. Lord, listen! Lord, forgive! Lord, hear and act! For your sake, my God, do not delay, because your city and your people bear your Name.”

    While I was speaking and praying, confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel and making my request to the LORD my God for his holy hill— while I was still in prayer, Gabriel, the man I had seen in the earlier vision, came to me in swift flight about the time of the evening sacrifice. He instructed me and said to me, “Daniel, I have now come to give you insight and understanding. As soon as you began to pray, a word went out, which I have come to tell you, for you are highly esteemed. Therefore, consider the word and understand the vision: “Seventy ‘sevens’ are decreed for your people and your holy city to finish transgression, to put an end to sin, to atone for wickedness, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the Most Holy Place. “Know and understand this: From the time the word goes out to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One, the ruler, comes, there will be seven ‘sevens,’ and sixty-two ‘sevens.’ It will be rebuilt with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble. After the sixty-two ‘sevens,’ the Anointed One will be put to death and will have nothing. The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end will come like a flood: War will continue until the end, and desolations have been decreed. He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’ In the middle of the ‘seven’ he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.”

    In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia, a revelation was given to Daniel (who was called Belteshazzar). Its message was true and it concerned a great war. The understanding of the message came to him in a vision. At that time I, Daniel, mourned for three weeks. I ate no choice food; no meat or wine touched my lips; and I used no lotions at all until the three weeks were over. On the twenty-fourth day of the first month, as I was standing on the bank of the great river, the Tigris, I looked up and there before me was a man dressed in linen, with a belt of fine gold from Uphaz around his waist. His body was like topaz, his face like lightning, his eyes like flaming torches, his arms and legs like the gleam of burnished bronze, and his voice like the sound of a multitude. I, Daniel, was the only one who saw the vision; those who were with me did not see it, but such terror overwhelmed them that they fled and hid themselves. So I was left alone, gazing at this great vision; I had no strength left, my face turned deathly pale and I was helpless. Then I heard him speaking, and as I listened to him, I fell into a deep sleep, my face to the ground. A hand touched me and set me trembling on my hands and knees. He said, “Daniel, you who are highly esteemed, consider carefully the words I am about to speak to you, and stand up, for I have now been sent to you.” And when he said this to me, I stood up trembling.

    Then he continued, “Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them. But the prince of the Persian kingdom resisted me twenty-one days. Then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, because I was detained there with the king of Persia. Now I have come to explain to you what will happen to your people in the future, for the vision concerns a time yet to come.” While he was saying this to me, I bowed with my face toward the ground and was speechless. Then one who looked like a man touched my lips, and I opened my mouth and began to speak. I said to the one standing before me, “I am overcome with anguish because of the vision, my lord, and I feel very weak. How can I, your servant, talk with you, my lord? My strength is gone and I can hardly breathe.” Again the one who looked like a man touched me and gave me strength. “Do not be afraid, you who are highly esteemed,” he said. “Peace! Be strong now; be strong.” When he spoke to me, I was strengthened and said, “Speak, my lord, since you have given me strength.” So he said, “Do you know why I have come to you? Soon I will return to fight against the prince of Persia, and when I go, the prince of Greece will come; but first I will tell you what is written in the Book of Truth. (No one supports me against them except Michael, your prince. And in the first year of Darius the Mede, I took my stand to support and protect him.)

    “Now then, I tell you the truth: Three more kings will arise in Persia, and then a fourth, who will be far richer than all the others. When he has gained power by his wealth, he will stir up everyone against the kingdom of Greece. Then a mighty king will arise, who will rule with great power and do as he pleases. After he has arisen, his empire will be broken up and parceled out toward the four winds of heaven. It will not go to his descendants, nor will it have the power he exercised, because his empire will be uprooted and given to others. “The king of the South will become strong, but one of his commanders will become even stronger than he and will rule his own kingdom with great power. After some years, they will become allies. The daughter of the king of the South will go to the king of the North to make an alliance, but she will not retain her power, and he and his power will not last. In those days she will be betrayed, together with her royal escort and her father and the one who supported her. “One from her family line will arise to take her place. He will attack the forces of the king of the North and enter his fortress; he will fight against them and be victorious. He will also seize their gods, their metal images and their valuable articles of silver and gold and carry them off to Egypt. For some years he will leave the king of the North alone. Then the king of the North will invade the realm of the king of the South but will retreat to his own country. His sons will prepare for war and assemble a great army, which will sweep on like an irresistible flood and carry the battle as far as his fortress.

    “Then the king of the South will march out in a rage and fight against the king of the North, who will raise a large army, but it will be defeated. When the army is carried off, the king of the South will be filled with pride and will slaughter many thousands, yet he will not remain triumphant. For the king of the North will muster another army, larger than the first; and after several years, he will advance with a huge army fully equipped. “In those times many will rise against the king of the South. Those who are violent among your own people will rebel in fulfillment of the vision, but without success. Then the king of the North will come and build up siege ramps and will capture a fortified city. The forces of the South will be powerless to resist; even their best troops will not have the strength to stand. The invader will do as he pleases; no one will be able to stand against him. He will establish himself in the Beautiful Land and will have the power to destroy it. He will determine to come with the might of his entire kingdom and will make an alliance with the king of the South. And he will give him a daughter in marriage in order to overthrow the kingdom, but his plans will not succeed or help him. Then he will turn his attention to the coastlands and will take many of them, but a commander will put an end to his insolence and will turn his insolence back on him. After this, he will turn back toward the fortresses of his own country but will stumble and fall, to be seen no more. “His successor will send out a tax collector to maintain the royal splendor. In a few years, however, he will be destroyed, yet not in anger or in battle. “He will be succeeded by a contemptible person who has not been given the honor of royalty. He will invade the kingdom when its people feel secure, and he will seize it through intrigue. Then an overwhelming army will be swept away before him; both it and a prince of the covenant will be destroyed. After coming to an agreement with him, he will act deceitfully, and with only a few people he will rise to power. When the richest provinces feel secure, he will invade them and will achieve what neither his fathers nor his forefathers did. He will distribute plunder, loot and wealth among his followers. He will plot the overthrow of fortresses—but only for a time.

    “With a large army he will stir up his strength and courage against the king of the South. The king of the South will wage war with a large and very powerful army, but he will not be able to stand because of the plots devised against him. Those who eat from the king’s provisions will try to destroy him; his army will be swept away, and many will fall in battle. The two kings, with their hearts bent on evil, will sit at the same table and lie to each other, but to no avail, because an end will still come at the appointed time. The king of the North will return to his own country with great wealth, but his heart will be set against the holy covenant. He will take action against it and then return to his own country. “At the appointed time he will invade the South again, but this time the outcome will be different from what it was before. Ships of the western coastlands will oppose him, and he will lose heart. Then he will turn back and vent his fury against the holy covenant. He will return and show favor to those who forsake the holy covenant. “His armed forces will rise up to desecrate the temple fortress and will abolish the daily sacrifice. Then they will set up the abomination that causes desolation. With flattery he will corrupt those who have violated the covenant, but the people who know their God will firmly resist him. “Those who are wise will instruct many, though for a time they will fall by the sword or be burned or captured or plundered. When they fall, they will receive a little help, and many who are not sincere will join them. Some of the wise will stumble, so that they may be refined, purified and made spotless until the time of the end, for it will still come at the appointed time.

    “The king will do as he pleases. He will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will say unheard-of things against the God of gods. He will be successful until the time of wrath is completed, for what has been determined must take place. He will show no regard for the gods of his ancestors or for the one desired by women, nor will he regard any god, but will exalt himself above them all. Instead of them, he will honor a god of fortresses; a god unknown to his ancestors he will honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and costly gifts. He will attack the mightiest fortresses with the help of a foreign god and will greatly honor those who acknowledge him. He will make them rulers over many people and will distribute the land at a price. “At the time of the end the king of the South will engage him in battle, and the king of the North will storm out against him with chariots and cavalry and a great fleet of ships. He will invade many countries and sweep through them like a flood. He will also invade the Beautiful Land. Many countries will fall, but Edom, Moab and the leaders of Ammon will be delivered from his hand. He will extend his power over many countries; Egypt will not escape. He will gain control of the treasures of gold and silver and all the riches of Egypt, with the Libyans and Cushites in submission. But reports from the east and the north will alarm him, and he will set out in a great rage to destroy and annihilate many. He will pitch his royal tents between the seas at the beautiful holy mountain. Yet he will come to his end, and no one will help him.

    “At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people—everyone whose name is found written in the book—will be delivered. Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt. Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. But you, Daniel, roll up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end. Many will go here and there to increase knowledge.” Then I, Daniel, looked, and there before me stood two others, one on this bank of the river and one on the opposite bank. One of them said to the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, “How long will it be before these astonishing things are fulfilled?”

    The man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, lifted his right hand and his left hand toward heaven, and I heard him swear by him who lives forever, saying, “It will be for a time, times and half a time. When the power of the holy people has been finally broken, all these things will be completed.” I heard, but I did not understand. So I asked, “My lord, what will the outcome of all this be?” He replied, “Go your way, Daniel, because the words are rolled up and sealed until the time of the end. Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand. “From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days. Blessed is the one who waits for and reaches the end of the 1,335 days. “As for you, go your way till the end. You will rest, and then at the end of the days you will rise to receive your allotted inheritance.”

    In time, the Star Being would come to trust the six. By using a small crystal to create images, the Visitor began to communicate with the young men. Calling him the Star Elder, the youths sat at the knee of their Friend, examining all of the crystalline images with great care, piecing together the incredible history of our Solar system and Mankind itself.

    Star Elder's message was simple m Star Beings have been here since Earth was a barren rock. They were here when Man was created and have been here throughout his evolution. In some cases their involvement was benevolent, in some cases, it was not. Man has been guided...and he has been misled. The Star Beings have been our Gods...and our Devils.

    They have always been here, and they are still here now.

    When pressed to explain his presence on Earth, the "Star Elder" stunned the six. There was a war in the skies above, his ship had been downed by enemy forces!

    I am called 'Morning Sky'... Robert Morning Sky.

    My grandfather was one of the six young Indian rescuers. When I was young, my grandfather told me the story about his Star visitor. He and his friends called him 'Star Elder', a name given out of respect. But as time passed, his name was revealed to the youths. He was called... 'Bek'Ti'.

    This is his story...and mine.

    In the late sixties, I was enrolled at a University in a Religious Studies program. Towards the end of my studies, I submitted a paper that briefly summarized the history of Man and Earth as told by Bek'Ti. I titled the paper, 'TERRA, a Hidden History of Planet Earth'. I was sure it had presented & well researched and well documented work.

    It was immediately labeled a work of outrageous, if not blasphemous, distortion of historical records and not of the caliber of a serious student of Religion. The TERRA PAPERS, the story of Bek'Ti, nearly got me thrown out of school.

    In frustration, I approached a UFO organization and some UFO researchers reasonably confident that they would be most interested in my story. To my surprise, I was rejected offhand. I was advised by one researcher that UFO' s were quite clearly a phenomena of a technology and NOT the works of the mythical beings of primitive peoples. (Curiously, he is now a well-respected UFO author and has recently released a book on the ET/Native American connection.)

    For thirty years, I have avoided telling the story. The initial response to my efforts was discouraging. But I have recently been persuaded to try again.

    The history of Man and Earth presented by Bek'Ti is both exciting and frightening. The creation of Man and his place in the galaxy is made clear but in the process his nobility, and his pride, will be injured. The abduction phenomena and the attending grey beings are revealed to have been integral parts of Man's history but are explained against the framework of the purposes of the Star Beings for Mankind.

    The sources of Man's religions and the origins of legendary figures like Zeus, the Minotaur, Osiris and Isis, and a number of other 'mythological' beings are explained and also placed into the framework of the History of Planet Earth.

    And, so too, upcoming events can be predicted. Not from any psychic abilities or channeling, but from patterns of an on-going effort to direct Planet Earth.

    Man will soon be surrounded with images of asteroids and falling fiery comets. Black pigs will be seen everywhere as will Angel figures. Dinosaurs will become children's heroes and violence will be the foundation of their play. New airborne diseases, immune to existing treatments, will surface. NASA will be rendered weak and impotent, if not terminated.

    A galactic war of conquest rages over our heads...Earth...and Man...is the prize.

    This is my story...

    This is my Grandfather's story ...and... this is the story of Bek'Ti.

    GENESIS

    The explosion rocked the Nothingness of the Void. Primordial 'essence' was thrown violently outward. Like a primeval ocean, wave after wave crashed out into the black pit of the Void. Nothingness beheld Chaos, Chaos poured out into Nothingness.

    As the primeval waters streamed outwards, rivers of dark 'essence' swirled together, forming huge whirlpools. As the whirlpools spun inwards, the 'essence' condensed into clouds of gas. Superheated from the compression forces in the core of the swirl, sparks ignited the volatile clouds. Explosion after explosion formed enormous balls of fire, supernovas of brilliant red and dwarf stars of blazing blue.

    Like islands in the waters of 'essence', the stars formed from the swirls in the spinning galaxies. Time after time, the process was repeated in the Void... time after time, a galaxy was born.

    In time, one of these galaxies would come to be known as 'ERIDANUS'. This is a history of one small part of ERIDANUS... and a tiny world known to us as EARTH.

    ERIDANUS
    In the swirling primordial 'waters' of ERIDANUS, many of the stars gave birth to worlds of their own.

    From the gases and dust thrown out from the suns, the planets condensed and cooled. Elemental gases combined to form moisture, the rain fell to form oceans. Thunderstorms raged, the oceans tossed and turned, crashing on the shores of the surface lands. In the midst of the lightning and fury, a single spark flashed, creating in one micro-second a single cell of life.

    Single celled life forms combined to create multi-celled creatures, multi-celled creatures became complex beings with billions of shells... fishes, insects, birds, reptiles, plants and mammals. As many different creatures as there are stars in the galaxy, came into existence.

    And in time, 'Humanoids' evolved. Fish humanoids, bird humanoids, reptile humanoids, mammal humanoids and humanoids of every kind, became the consistent outcome of evolution.

    As Primordial ERIDANUS MAN developed, his caves gave way to huts, gatherings of huts became settlements, settlements became cities. The trapping and hunting of animals gave way to fur trading, fur trading gave way to markets. Gathering gave birth to gardening, gardening yielded to farming.

    The needs of ERIDANUS MAN became desires...desires became greed. Compassionate men became leaders, leaders became conquerors, and a 'primitive' world became 'civilized'. Differences of opinion became arguments, arguments became wars. Curiosity and necessity gave birth to technology.

    Early ERIDANUS MAN had conquered his world.

    And then ERIDANUS MAN looked up, up into the skies. And he saw his moon. He created ships to carry him skyward, and his conquest of the moon began. As he stood on the moon, as he surveyed the lunar cities, he looked up and saw the stars above him. Seeking more, he moved skyward again. This time neighboring worlds were discovered. ERIDANUS MAN conquered the environment of the new world, and the cycle began again.

    And so it was that ERIDANUS MAN met his relatives in the galaxy.

    ERIDANUS BIRD MAN met ERIDANUS MAMMAL MAN, ERIDANUS REPTILE MAN met ERIDANUS INSECT MAN, and an ERIDANUS REPTILE MAN greeted them all. The many evolved beings of the worlds of ERIDANUS gathered and talked. They traded, they danced, they shared and they joined together. In time, they learned from each other and they lived together.

    And... they went to War.

    Primitive ERIDANUS MAN had become a 'civilized' ERIDANUS MAN, primitive war gave way to the Science of War, Death in all its horror became a tool of Progress. Galactic kingdoms in ERIDANUS rose and fell, civilizations prospered and died. A continuous series of wars engulfed the entire galaxy.

    No single Empire endured for long. None save one...

    THE 'SSS' EMPIRE

    In the galaxy of ERIDANUS, the way of things became war, violence and turbulence.

    Surfacing above other races as the Supreme Masters of War, the 'SSS' Beings, (so-called because of the hissing sound they made as they spoke), weathered war and chaos to seize and retain a sizable portion of the Ninth Sector of the galaxy. Though originally ruled over by Kings of repute, it was under the 'SSS' Queens that the Empire was to reach its pinnacle. Known as the 'SSS-T', the Queens and their techniques of rule became the very embodiment of Royal power.

    The very name for a throne, 'AST', would be chilling tribute to the deadliness of the reptilian Queens.

    In a galaxy of chaos and war, the SSS beings had no peer or competition. Ruthless in command, and efficient in their cruelty, the SSS-T Queens were brilliant politicians and war strategists, using events to advantage and manipulating wars to their advantage and gain.

    Providing the Royals with the power to conquer and reign over their foes was a powerful military force, unmatched and unequaled by any other. Comprised of tall imposing figures, the SSS Warriors were cold-blooded warriors with frightening dragon-like faces. Though evolution had long since removed their scale-like skins, the plates on the body armor gave an impression of fierce, dinosaur beings.

    Only a long ridge of bone rising from the forehead and trailing back and over the head remained to hint at their reptilian ancestry. Known as the 'M-K' or 'M-G', the appearance of the SSS Warriors alone was enough to strike fear into an opponent's heart.

    Countless wars over billions of years had taught the SSS Queens a vital lesson, an enemy or rebellious subject serves no purpose if executed. But if the brain was re-programmed, resistance was eliminated and an able body was added to the labor force. Mind control was the SSS-T Science of choice.

    Referred to by other races as the 'ARI' or 'Masters', in time they would become known as the 'ARI' of 'AH' (Heaven), or the 'ARI-AN'. Today it is known as ORION.

    But though it had become the epitome of power and might, a symbol of brutal rulership and unrelenting aggression, the fates would play a curious trick on ARI-AN.

    In their quest for galactic power, the SSS-T Warriors had looted the Palace treasuries of their victimized worlds. The cultural riches of conquered worlds were placed on display in the museums of ARI-AN, making the Empire the center of Ninth Sector culture and wisdom.

    ARI-AN became the showcase world for Poetry and Music, Art and Dance.

    It was a step, however unknowing, for the evolution of temperance in the SSS-T psyche.

    THE 'ASA-RRR' EMPIRE

    Though the reign of the SSS-T Queens on the Ninth Sector was seldom challenged, of great concern to the ARI-AN Queens were the movements and expansions of yet another race called 'RRR'.

    Evolved from vicious mammalian predators, the 'RRR' were still in the early stages of development, their thirst for expansionism unburdened by the softening that continual wars and time brought on.

    For the RRR race, war was the entirety of existence, all else was meaningless. Life itself meant obedience and total commitment to the RRR Kings, anything less meant death. So quickly did they create their Empire, so ruthless were their techniques that the RRR would become known as 'ASA' or Over-Lords.

    In the Ninth Sector, the worlds of the RRR would be known as 'ASA-RRR'.

    Led by the fearsome 'IKU' Warriors, a barbaric army with a fleet of deadly Starships of overwhelming fire-power, the Kings of ASA-RRR wreaked havoc on the worlds surrounding the Ninth Passageway.

    The elite 'IKU' Forces descended on their unsuspecting targets with unmerciful and unrelenting attack, clearing the skyways of any potential resistance and totally decimating land-based strong-holds. Within moments, Warrior Ground Forces, the 'BEH', moved in to annihilate any and all remaining military forces.

    Renowned for their practice of devouring the flesh of their enemies, the IKU and BEH became known as the 'D-K' or 'T-K', the 'Teeth' of the RRR.

    Aggressive and ravenous, unrelenting in their expansion, the RRR Conqueror Kings began the slow, methodical take-over of the 'PESH-METEN' (Ninth Passageway), a crucial Star Lane.

    Seizing the Passageway would give the ASA-RRR Kings control of travel into and out of the ARI-AN Empire, and that possibility was one the SSS-T Queens could not permit.

    But the ASA-RRR Kings were a formidable power.

    The Ways of War had been the driving force of their evolution. Every King had demanded much of their military forces. The Star-ship pilots' the IKU, possessed light beams which could melt targets, cut them to pieces or disintegrate them. The elite Ground Forces, the BEH, used weapons which could emit sounds that stunned the enemy, disintegrated solid objects or could be used to transport an object from one place to another.

    Ail in all, the DAK forces had in a short time become an army of devastating power. The ASA-RRR Science of War was a Technology of Death called fAT'. And from this new science, the ultimate Warship was spawned. A planet-sized globe with the armaments of all other Starships...and more, the Warship was dubbed the 'RR' or 'AR'.

    A miniature world capable of a destruction never before seen in the Ninth Sector, the AR of DAK forces made the Empire a force to be reckoned with. The rays of the sun glistening off the surface of the Death-ship made the AR shine like a bright star in the skies. Though a brilliant star was often a portent of wondrous things, this star brought death and destruction.

    As the ASA-RRR Kings continued to expand their holdings, the SSS-T Queens made a careful gesture of peace towards the conquering Kings in the hopes of resolving the dilemma before War became necessary.

    The billions of years of conflict had taught the SSS-T an invaluable lesson, war brings death to a winner as well as a loser. There were other ways to win the conflict. Victory was, in some cases, gained by taking the enemy into one's own folds. The DAK could be won over in a more clever and devious way.

    The Queens of ARI-AN called for a meeting of Royals. If the Kings of ASA-RRR pledged their loyalty to the SSS-T High Throne and submitted themselves to the service of the Throne then they would be granted control of the outer stars of the Ninth Sector. Realizing the magnitude of power in the offer extended, the ASA-RRR Kings quickly agreed to the Alliance.

    The DAK forces and mighty AR Death Planet were placed in the service of the SSS-T Queens, the outer Ninth Sector was made part of the ASA-RRR Empire. Catapulted to a place as super power by the Alliance, the Stars of ASA-RRR became known as the Empire of 'SSS-T.RRR.SSS-T' / 'Empire, born of the SSS-T, dying for the SSS-T', or 'SS-RR-SS' (Sirius).

    With the ARI-AN Alliance to back them- the ASA-RRR Kings began yet a greater effort to conquer and seize new systems, new worlds to add to their Empire.

    Solidifying their power, levying heavy tolls and embargoes on travelers on the lanes of the Ninth Passageway, the SS-RR-SS Empire had soon become
    The ARI-AN Queens watched with a wary eye, the moment of betrayal must be carefully planned.

    And so for a time, a tenuous peace came to exist between the two Thrones. All was well, until the era of the Monarch known as the Great AN-AN, the Elder King of ASA-RRR.

    THE AR
    The following are ancient Egyptian words of AR origin:

    In the era of the Great Elder King AN-AN, life on ASA-RRR was good.

    The luxuries and benefits that befitted a Conqueror race was theirs to enjoy and revel in.

    The alliance with the SSS-T Empire had made the Kings of ASA-RRR more powerful than ever before and had permitted the people of ASA-RRR an opportunity to enjoy a richer style of life.

    But the power of the Throne also made the life of the King more precarious. Treachery, lies and deceit surrounded the King. Assassination plots, military coups and alien invasions were the every day matters of the King. The Prince was expected to plot for his father's demise, distant brothers and illegitimate children pretended to the Throne Kingship.

    King AN-AN watched the skies for enemy attacks, and peered carefully over his shoulder at relatives and members of the royal court. Such was the life of a King of ASA-RRR, and such was the life of the Elder King AN-AN.

    Seated in the Royal Court of the Great AN-AN, serving as Royal Cup-Bearer, was his brother, the Great AL-SHAR. Assisting in the governing of the Empire, the Great AL-SHAR served faithfully under his brother, the Great Elder King.

    Peace reigned, the Empire prospered, until an out-break of war in the Central Stars. A series of major conflicts, known as the "Galactic Great Wars', drew both the ARI-AN Empire and the Empire of ASA-RRR into its folds. The Great Elder King was summoned to the Palace of the SSS-T to render services as Commander of the combined M-K and D-K Warriors.

    Great AL-SHAR, acting on behalf of King AN-AN remained behind in the ASA-RRR Palace. Seeing an opportunity to betray his brother, Prince AL-SHAR decided to seize control of the Central ASA-RRR Forces. The successful coup compelled the Prince to further action. He immediately dispatched an elite troop of assassins to hunt down and take the life of the Elder King.

    Historical documents would tell of the death in battle of the Great AN-AN, the Hero King who gave his life while in command of his armies. But those who were in the Court of ASA-RRR knew why the King had died, and who was responsible.

    Prince AL-SHAR, Royal Cup-Bearer, was now King AL-AL.

    Lord Prince AN-SHAR, son of the Hero King AN-AN and heir apparent, was captured and placed into exile by the new King of ASA-RRR, his claim to the throne stripped away forever.

    To insure his personal safety, the Great King AL-AL made the grandson of the Great AN-AN his own personal Cup-Bearer. Deposed Prince AN-U was both hostage and servant to his King and Uncle. Revenge would have to wait.

    For now he would serve faithfully...but he would learn. Someday the Throne of ASA-RRR would be his, this he vowed!

    In this time, yet another significant event would occur, one which would change forever the fate of the Ninth Sector. A new star was beginning to mature, its young worlds cooling down to form inhabitable planets. King AL-AL, recognizing a potential for untapped precious ores, and the possibility of a strategic military outpost, immediately sent a trusted and faithful administrator to lay claim to the new solar system.

    Lord AL-AL-IM, Master of Genesis Sciences, had an imposing task before him, to colonize and develop a primitive planetary system.

    The young sun had originally formed with only two worlds in orbit around it, one tiny inner planet, (now known as Mercury) and one larger planet, its name to eventually be 'TIAMAT'.

    In time, six more worlds would form. One pair of inner worlds (Venus and Mars), two central giants (Jupiter and Saturn), and a pair of twin planets, (Neptune and Uranus).

    But it was TIAMAT, the tropical world, that would be the first planet developed by Lord AL-AL-IM in his assignment.

    Already inhabited by settlers of numerous galactic star systems, TIAMAT was both a paradise and a frontier world of danger. The presence of an ASA-RRR military contingency force and a direct link to King AL-AL and the Empire of ARI-AN was welcomed by the colonists and their families. Protection and necessary supplies would now be available, TIAMAT would become a full-fledged world.

    Lord AL-AL-IM began to immediately exploit the new solar system. The Sun was called 'Bad', 'where Death is'. In the immediate proximity of the young sun, was the tiniest world, christened 'MUM-MU', 'first born traveler'. The next world would become a military outpost. Though possessed of super-hot surface temperatures, its inner caverns gave comfortable shelter for the IKU and BEH forces. This world would become p known as 'DAK-A-MU', 'place of the DAK inside'.

    The Red Sands planet, next in line, was a world with air and water, trees and an environment suitable for settlers to inhabit. A good site for colonists, it also provided a much need surface land for a central military fortress. This was the world of 'DAK-MU', 'place of the DAK'.

    Beyond the red sands world was TIAMAT, the center of the colonization efforts of Lord AL-AL-IM.

    The largest of the system's worlds was a gigantic planet possessing gravitational forces that made it unsuitable for habitation but excellent for the production of super-metals-Under super-gravity conditions, metals could be forged into combinations impossible on other worlds. 'BAR-BAR-U' it was called, 'World of Metal Metals'.

    The second titan world was the most dangerous. Internal forces were highly unstable. Possessing a constant cloud of dust and rocks circling around its furiously spinning center and with gravitational forces that pulled many ships into an uncorrectable spin, the giant would be known as 'TAR-GALLU', the 'Great Destroyer'. Of all the planets, the 'Ringed One' would prove the most dangerous.

    A distance past TAR-GALLU was a large cold swamp planet, poisonous gases in its skies. 'SHANAMMA' would be difficult to colonize but would be ideal for Genesis experiments. The outermost world was called 'IR-U', a near twin to 'SHANAMMA' in size. IR-U was a watery world with a misty covering.

    Though the task was difficult. Lord AL-AL-IM would prove successful. The extremely high gravity forces on BAR-BAR-U simplified the manufacture of 'heavy' metals, unstable in an environment with low gravity. Military outposts on DAK-A-MU r and DAK-MU proved secure and strong. Experimental farms on both SHANAMA and IRU showed promise. The settlements on the moons of BAR-BAR-U and TAR-GALLU were also thriving.

    But TIAMAT was the crowning glory to the efforts of Lord AL-AL-IM. With the support of his King AL-AL back home, the Administrator was able to develop TIAMAT into a paradise far beyond expectation. Facilities to extract newly discovered ores were constructed. Atmospheric Conditioning Centers soon began the tedious task of transforming the skies into a more more suitable environment.

    As a source of precious ores and a strategic control point of traffic on the Ninth Passageway star lanes, the new system further strengthened the strangle hold King AL-AL held on the outer Ninth Sector.

    As his final project. Lord AL-AL-IM constructed a nearly perfect duplicate of the Palace of the ASA-RRR Kings' Known as 'Kl' its name literally meant 'In the Likeness of'. The new solar system of BAD had been conquered. In recognition of the efforts of AL-AL-IM, the system was called 'ARI-DU', 'the Mastered Place.' And its Lord was AL-AL-IM, the EN-GI, 'Lord of the World in the Likeness of ASA-RRR'.

    Under the premise of executing control of the star lanes of the Ninth Sector on behalf of the SSS-T Queens, AL-AL was able to control the travelers who entered the galaxy through the Passageway. By refusing travel on the star lanes. King AL-AL could prevent potential alliances with the ARI-AN from being formed. Negotiations with other galaxies were subject to the whims of King AL-AL, an intolerable situation for the SSS-T Queens.

    The ASA-RRR empire could delay, or undo, all crucial SSS-T political and economic alliances. King AL-AL, had turn ARI-DU into an island outpost of phenomenal power.

    And, though the Great AL-AL had further strengthened the ASA-RRR Throne, he had also weakened his position within the SSS-T Royal Court of ARI-AN. What the Great AL-AL could not foresee, what he could not suspect, was that his own future, his very survival, was hidden in the distant worlds AL-AL-IM had developed for him.

    Lurking back in the Royal Palace was AN-U, the one time Prince and highly disgruntled grandson of the Great AN-AN, waiting patiently for a time in which to move against his Uncle. Choosing a day of High Celebration of DAK victories in battle, when AL-AL would not be in the Palace, the Prince acted. The loyal followers of the Great AN-AN, still angry at AL-AL's betrayal, joined with AN-U.

    Overwhelming force and lightning speed assured the Prince of an immediate success. King AL-AL, hearing of the war in the Palace, chose not to fight the Prince. Fleeing for his life, the Great AL-AL descended to his far-away Palace in the ARI-DU System. Here, a loyal following received the deposed King with the enthusiasm of thankful subjects. Refuge was found in the island outpost AL-AL had developed. Here he would be a King, still adored and still welcomed.

    Back on ASA-RRR, the ex-Prince AN-U, celebrated his long awaited revenge. The throne was his, he was King AN-U.

    But victory was not totally complete. The loyal Warrior forces of the Great AL-AL held fast to the new solar system. The efforts of AL-AL-IM and the resources dedicated by AL-AL to developing and exploiting the new outpost was to return a handsome reward to the Great AL-AL in the end.

    Consistency in the production of heavy metals on BAR-BAR-U and continual discovery and exploitation of precious ores, particularly an abundance of gold, made the new solar system indispensable.

    The strength of AL-AL's hold on the solar system; a very strongly worded communiqué sent by the SSS-T Queens 'asking' that a civil war be avoided; and the vital resources brought in by the new system, all combined to give King AL-AL a very powerful position from which to negotiate a tentative truce, and a reprieve.
    With the SSS-T Queens looking over his shoulder, ASA-RRR King AN-U reluctantly accepted the agreement, for the while.

    For a time. King AL-AL continued to provide a steady and abundant stream of precious ores and metals to ASA-RRR- The angry AN-U accepted the shipments on behalf of the Empire of ASA-RRR and the ARI-AN Empire, but continued to look for any sign of weakness, any trouble that might give cause to bring his DAK armada down on AL-AL.

    AN-U placed his own elite IKU Star-pilots, the 'IKIKI', into orbits throughout the solar system. Any transgression, any mistake made by AL-AL, would bring down the wrath of his Highness, King AN-U.

    To further secure the solar system. King AN-U placed his own son, Prince AN-EN, in charge of the elite IKU Starships, and a special group called the 'IKIKI', the 'Watchers'. His title would be 'EN-LIL', 'Lord of Command'. To insure shipments of crucial resources remained intact and on time. King AN-U appointed his eldest son. Lord Prince EA, also a Master of Genesis Sciences, to the position of EN-GI, the very same position once held by AL-AL-IM.

    Lord Prince EN-LIL would be based on TIAMAT, as would be his brother Prince EN-KI.

    EN-LIL would travel the sky-ways, EN-KI would develop the system worlds and conduct continuing Genesis experiments on the watery world of SHANAMA, Mining, production and metallurgical operations would also fall into the realm of Prince EA's control. In this way, the King was assured his hand would extend over AL-AL's solar system.

    And so it was for many periods. Former King AL-AL would keep his word, producing the resources and maintaining order in the Ninth Passageway, while King AN-U reluctantly allowed a once hated foe to remain in power in the Ninth Passageway. But AN-U would never forget the injury he had suffered under the hands of his uncle AL-AL. When speaking of King AL-AL's duplicate palace, the Great AN-U always referred to it in an angry and disparaging manner.

    An 'Impure Palace', he called it, his own Palace on ASA-RRR was the 'Pure One', the ARI-DU Palace was the 'Dark One'. TIAMAT itself was the 'World of Darkness', regardless of its achievements.

    King AN-U would never forget the torments his father had endured. The hatred of a lifetime welled up within his very being. King AL-AL would live, but he would pay for his sins against the family of AN-U.

    But history was about to repeat itself. For in the very heart of ARI-DU, the grandson of King AL-AL, AL-AL-GAR, heir apparent to the Throne of the solar system, had become a far more powerful figure to the followers of King AL-AL than the the King of ASA-RRR was comfortable with.

    Born to one of the IKIKI pilots, the orbiting 'Watchers' of AN-U, AL-AL-GAR learned early the ways of the Star-pilots and their Warships. His piloting skills developed quickly, and in short time he was granted the status of IKU 'Master'.

    He, like his father, was IKU!

    But AL-AL-GAR had a plan.

    After IKU training, the Prince went to the High Palace of his grandfather, 'AM-BAHU', 'The Gathering Place'. He would make a strange request. Rather than rest on his laurels, the Prince asked to receive further training, only this time, in the military discipline of the elite BEH Warriors. Disciplined ground forces that were equivalent to the DAK Warriors of the skyways, the BEH were equally feared in the Ninth Sector.

    Exhibiting exemplary skills, the Prince once again completed his training in short time. Rising with quickness through the ranks. Lord Prince AL-AL-GAR would earn the title 'IKU-MAR-BEH', 'He is a Great One of the IKIKI and the BEH'.

    But, AL-AL-GAR, an honored Master of both Warrior disciplines, was to garner one more title'. He would receive the title of 'ZU', 'One who is Supreme Master', a status given only to the most elite of Warriors, a very select handful of fighters.

    The Great AN-U was worried! A Master of War dwelled far away in the Kingdom of AL-AL... and he was a Prince!

    The way in which IKU-MAR-BEH had pursued his military disciplines in such a brief time revealed much to King AN-U. He remembered what AL-AL had done to him when he was Prince. And now, the grandson of AL-AL, a Prince, had suffered the very same fate at the hands of King AN-U!

    AN-U was sure he knew the young Prince's heart. He knew how angry IKU-MAR-BEH must be. King AN-U would have to take immediate steps to prevent IKU-MAR-BEH from rising to power, and possibly inciting the ARI-DU colonies to rebel.

    And so a worried King AN-U moved, as his uncle had moved against him long ago. IKU-MAR-BEH wasmade Royal Cupbearer. Summoned to the Palace of ASA-RRR, IKU-MAR-BEH was placed in the Seat of the Cup-Bearer, a position under King AN-U where he could be constantly watched.

    In an effort to appease IKU-MAR-BEH, AN-U bestowed great honors on the young Prince, but to no avail. Still the King could sense the hatred of the Prince. King AN-U knew nothing would succeed, nothing would change the mind of IKU-MAR-BEH. For this reason, he would always be on guard. King AN-U had no choice but to be diligent in watching the Prince.

    But there were more troubles for the King in the faraway solar system. Lord Prince EN-LIL, AN-U's son, the appointed Overlord of the new system, had protested his placement in a region so far from the ASA-RRR Palace. Perhaps he too would give thought to an attempt to overthrow his own father. The BEH Warriors were loyal, but they were also a powerful force and could not be ignored.

    A threat could arise from a group of rebels within the IKIKI. They were loyal to AN-U but all had families in the new solar system, and Prince IKU-MAR-BEH had once been one of them. They, too, could become a threat to his rule. The worries in the Kingdom of AL-AL were many.

    AN-U had hoped that the presence of his sons would help, but the feuding between them had become worse while they had been in ARI-DU. Though Overlords of their very own domains, neither Prince was happy. Each had wanted complete control, total dominion over the entire AL-AL Kingdom of ARI-DU.

    Both Princes made threatening, almost dangerous, noises. King AN-U could take no chances in ARIDU. Forced to descend to the distant faraway solar system, the King was determined to put things in order. To protect himself from a coup by a vengeful Prince IKU-MAR-BEH, King AN-U took the Prince along with him on his journey.

    Feeling secure, the King AN-U made his way to the worlds of discord. But as they arrived. Prince IKU-MAR-BEH asked a favor of the King. Many of IKU-MAR-BEH's family and friends within the IKIKI had planned a welcoming for him, the Prince asked to be allowed to visit with them.

    Distracted by the pending events, the Great King doubled the DAK guards around the young Prince and ordered the IKIKI ships be carefully watched. Perhaps this would placate Lord IKU-MAR-BEH for a time. Assured that the situation was well in hand. King AN-U agreed to the request.

    Continuing on to the Palace in TIAMAT, the King hoped to be greeted with a solution to the battle between his sons.

    But the dispute over dominion of TIAMAT, Throne World of the solar system, could not be settled. Prince ENL-LIL made it clear to his father, if he was to stay in the distant and primitive solar system, he wanted to reside in the Palace as the King of ARIDU. Prince EA argued that since he was older he was more deserving, and he was a Genesis Scientist, a Way of Discipline that was perfect for Kingship over ARIDU.

    Seeing no resolution to the dilemma. King AN-U agreed to the choosing of lots to decide the fate of ARIDU. By chance Prince EN-LIL became Lord of ARIDU, the world, and ARIDU the system. Prince EA would remain the EN-GI and would continue to organize the development and recovery operations throughout ARIDU. While the decision made little difference in the resolution of difficulties, but it gave the King respite for a short time...a very short time.

    King AN-U boarded the small ship which would take him up to his waiting Flagship, the Royal ,ARI- As AN-U approached the converted planet-sized Deathship, he could not have been more proud. The gleaming ship was truly a Royal craft.

    But an unexpected surprise awaited the' King.

    Overwhelming the Guards assigned to watch him, the young IKU-MAR-BEH and his loyal IKIKI Warriors had captured the AR Flagship, IKU-MAR-BEH would have his revenge. As AN-U moved closer, the trap was made ready.

    But a cry went out - a warning from a loyal AN-U Warrior. At the last moment, AN-U turned to flee. IKU-MAR-BEH struck quickly, damaging the ship of the King.

    The forces of AN-U, outnumbered and overwhelmed, struck back.

    The battle was fierce in intensity, short in duration.

    The DAK Elite Royal Guard had little chance of victory, all they could only hope to do was create sufficient time to allow the King to escape. As AN-U fled into the stars on an escort ship, a final explosion and fire-ball marked the last stand of his loyal DAK defenders.

    Lord Prince IKU-MAR-BEH moved quickly. With loyal IKIKI Warriors in the skyways and BEH Warriors on the planets, the takeover of the solar system was quick and decisive. Prince IKU-MAR-BEH found little resistance. The inhabitants of the AL-AL Kingdom supported his rebellion, they opposed the rule of the ASA-RRR empire. Small pockets of AN-U loyalists were captured, and neutralized. Prince IKU-MAR-BEH had won!

    And in his victory, he had captured the mighty AR, Flagship of the War armada of ASA-RRR. The cries of celebration were tumultuous! Long live the Prince! Long live Mighty ZU!

    The Prince was victorious. As King of the rebel kingdom he would become known as King 'ZU-ZU', or 'ZUZ' (Zeus). The capture of the AR of AN-U would earn ZU-ZU yet another name, 'AR-ZU', 'Supreme Lord of the AR'. In honor of his victory, the Palace of his grandfather, previously called 'AL AMBAHU' was renamed 'AL AMBAHU ZU' or 'AL-AMBA-ZU' (Olympus), 'Place-of Gathering of AL and ZU'.

    The glory of the throne of ARIDU was his.

    'The Battle of AN-U and KUMARBI', an ancient legend found on Babylonian clay tablets, describes a royal battle in the skies in which Prince KUMARBI fights with and defeats King AN-U, who flees into heaven. Before the battle is over, KUMARBI 'bites' AN-U in the genitals, hurting him.

    The story really says KUMARBI 'used his teeth'(DAK) on AN-U's 'ball of power' (The AR).

    THE REBEL EMPIRE

    King SD-SD (Zeus) knew he would not be able to savor his triumph for long. A new War was about to begin, a War which pitted his young solar system and its inhabitants against an older star system that was the home of their ancestors.

    Back in ASA-RRR, King AN-U stormed through his Palace.

    The specific event he had planned to avoid, a revolt led by Prince IKU-MAR-BEH, had not only happened, but had forced AN-U himself, to flee in humiliation. AN-U lashed out in an almost uncontrollable rage. He ordered his second AR Death-ship be made immediately ready for war; The rebellious Lord Prince IKU-MAR-BEH would pay dearly! Battle forces of elite BBS Warriors were loaded aboard the AR.

    The finest IKU Star pilots were summoned, and the AR was armed. Escorted by RRR Starfighters and Warships, the AR armada passed over the sky above the King's Palace. The sight lifted the spirit of the King, victory was sure to be his! Prince IKU-MAR-BEH would be punished for his blasphemous behavior!

    But King ZU-ZU was ready. The captured AR was also made ready. Lord King AR-ZU (ZU-ZU) and his loyal IKU planned an unexpected welcome for the coming invasion force. Choosing not to await the arrival of the armada, AR-ZU and his forces planned to ambush the Deathship of AN-U while it was yet out of the ARIDU solar system.

    As the Star fleet from ASA-RRR approached, AR-ZU waited. When he felt the moment was right, the IKU and BEH forces of the rebel Empire descended on the armada suddenly and with a fury befitting a galactic lightning storm. The escort ships that were caught by surprise exploded in huge balls of fire! The battle was engaged, flashes of brilliant white and green light criss-crossed through the blackness.

    AR-ZU watched the progress of the battle carefully. The moment for unleashing his captured AR had to be precise. As his attack ships struck with deadly accuracy, a sudden break appeared in the formations of AN-U's invasion forces. AR-ZU immediately summoned the captured AR Deathship.

    For one brief moment, there was silence as the two large Warships faced each other. As two mighty bulls with lowered heads, the pause only preceded the head-long charge. Chaos, thunder and lightning filled the starways. The weapons-fire was overwhelming- Lord King AR-ZU had to turn away from the blinding light and the deafening noise.

    When the light flashes stopped, AR-ZU lifted up his visor and strained to see through the smoke- Fragments flew by his ship. As the haze cleared, AR-ZU realized what those final explosions had been. They had come from his captured AR Deathship. The enormous explosion hurled pieces of metal in every direction. Shards of the AR outer skin bounced off AR-ZU's own ship.

    The mighty Flagship of AN-U had defeated AR-ZU's Deathship and continued to move steadily forward.

    AR-zu watched in horror as the dying body of the Warship hurtled flaming downward into the oncoming path of the world P of KAKKAB SHANAMMA (Uranus), the planet where experiments on plant and animal life were being conducted by Prince EA. As the small moon-sized ship of metal entered the atmosphere, a shower of sparks filled the skies.

    Bolts of blue lightning flashed from the ship to the surface of the planet.

    The sky over KAKKAH SHANAMMA was in chaos even before the miles wide globe of burning metal collided with the world. Striking at an angle, the stricken AR careened off the planet, skidding, and bouncing, then catapulting into the black Void. KAKKAB SHANAMMA was tipped over on its axis. Shudders pulsed along the inner caverns of the planet, its quaking core was shaken and toppled. Once an upright world, it now lay on its side.

    Lord AR-zu watched helplessly as his valiant pilots fell into the dark void in the dying AR. They had struck a death blow to a good part of the invasion forces but had given the ultimate sacrifice in doing so.

    Turning away from sight, AR-ZU maneuvered his ship in an arc towards the still moving AR Deathship of AN-U. Imposing in its size, the AR was truly magnificent in its horror. As AR-ZU continued to watch, he noticed that the AR moved in an odd fashion, its path was erratic. The realization suddenly struck AR-ZU. The destruction beams of his IKIKI pilots had damaged the Deathship! The outcome of the battle was still undecided! AR-ZU could still win a victory!

    With a renewed sense of hope, he ordered his Warships to descend on the AR Deathship again, with AR-ZU himself in the lead. Using Starfighters to occupy the escort forces, AR-ZU in his own Starship, went after the crippled AR. Wave after wave of Starships attacked the damaged ship again and again, as it continued to move into AR-ZO's solar system.

    With its own arsenal of powerful death rays, the Warship fought its way past distant IRU (Neptune) and the now fallen and tilting world of KAKKAB SHANAMMA.
    But the constant fire barrage of AR-ZU's Starships began to take its toll. As the mighty AR moved into the proximity of TAR-GALLU (Saturn), the tremendous gravity of the ringed planet further pulled the shuddering Deathship away from its direct path towards TIAMAT. Almost out of control, the ship strained to stay its course.

    Lord AR-ZU assembled his forces for one last attack. In one final decisive strike. Lord AR-ZU and his Starships gave their all against the AR. As each Starfighter descended and unloaded his arsenal, the AR shook and shuddered. The groan and creaks of the internal explosions sounded like ghoulish, demonic screams. Suddenly, the AR exploded in flame. Every part of the Death planet shook violently.

    Smoke and flames erupted from every crevice of the ship. Streaming clouds of blackness trailed behind the staggering ship, the AR of AN-U was dying. AR-ZU sat back in his ship. He had successfully defeated the pride of the ASA-RRR Fleet.

    But suddenly, he sat forward.

    The valiant IKU pilots of AN-U took aim at the planet of TIAMAT with the only weapon they had left, the AR Deathship itself! Maneuvering the flaming and disintegrating warship, they hurled themselves directly at TIAMAT!

    The Great Palace of AL-AMBAHU-ZU was thrown into a panic. The alarm was sent out. Death was about to crash down from the sky. Starships, cargo ships, ships of every sort, were commandeered for the purposes of evacuation. But it was too late! Nothing could be done! The inhabitants of TIAMAT had no chance, they could not be rescued, it was too late!

    Lord AR-ZU could hear the screams of his people over the beams of communication. Turning his head away, AR-ZU turned off the audio linkage. AR-ZU's pilots veered his ship away. Lord AR-ZU had to be saved!

    The collision was moments away!

    As the dying AR Deathship struck the planet, the ship of Lord AR-ZU was enveloped in blinding light.

    In moments, the shock wave struck the ship, bouncing it around as if it were a leaf caught up in a tidal wave. Tumbling and twisting, the ship of Lord AR-ZU was thrown in the direction of TARGALLU, narrowly missing the stone rings.

    When his pilots regained control of the spinning ship, an uneasy Lord AR-ZU looked back towards his beloved TIAMAT. It was no more.

    The collision had ripped the paradise world apart. Huge chunks of the planet were flying in every direction. Magma, metal, fire and lightning mixed together to create a rain of burning death. Where once the proud planet had stood, only rock debris, smoke and dust remained. Pieces of TIAMAT were still flying by him as AR-ZU moved in to view the destroyed planet.

    Through a cloud of dust, smoke and gas, Lord AR-ZU, hoping for the best, maneuvered towards the place TIAMAT had once stood. As he pulled out of the dark aists, he saw it!

    TIAMAT... or what was left of it.

    The huge planet, with a gaping hole in its side, a smoke trail behind it, hurtled away from him towards the sun. The Prince turned away again, TIAMAT was plummeting to its death into the sun below. His people were dead.

    AR-ZU was silent. As he looked out, his gaze was met by a solar system that had been ravaged and decimated. The War left its mark on the moons and planets of ARIDU. The lives, the cities and the solar system itself was seriously damaged and possibly irreparably so.

    Lord AR-ZU looked at the trail of rubble between DAK-MU, the red planet and the giant world of BAR-BAR-U.

    TIAMAT was no more! Only the 'grave' stones remained.

    Lord AR-ZU, and the IKIKI who remained, returned to DAK-MU, the central fortress. DAK-MU, a wondrous world itself, would become the new Royal Planet. On DAK-MU, Lord and King AR-ZU would begin again, re-building the glory of TIAMAT and constructing a new Golden era, independent of ASA-RRR.

    As Lord AR-ZU, now King ZU-ZU, rested in his Palace on a mountain top of DAK-MU, an astonishing message was received. The largest fragment of TIAMAT had slowed in its fall toward the sun, it would not disappear into the fiery abyss at all! It would come to rest in its own orbit just within the orbit of DAK-MU.

    Lord King ZU-ZU wasted no time. Summoning his own teams of Genesis scientists, he ordered them to rebuild the burned skeletal remains of TIAMAT.

    Somehow, in someway. King ZU-ZU would bring the glory of the Paradise world to life again.

    The success of the Genesis scientists lifted the King's spirits. He immediately ordered the construction of a large monument, a palace, to commemorate the loyal fallen Warriors of ARIDU. It would also be a monument to his father and his grandfather.

    In the Hall of AL-AL-U (Valhalla) on the world reconstructed, they would be honored, never to be forgotten.

    For a time, the destruction of the AR and its war escort along with the quick seizure of the Ninth Passageway and its outposts, held the Great AN-U at bay. The strength of ZU-ZU and his brilliant war tactics had surprised the ASA-RRR King and his military forces.

    It would take time to re-evaluate, to plan for another attack.

    The Theogony, a Greek tale of old, relates the tale of Zeus (ZU-ZU) and the Olympus Gods (AL-AMBAHU-ZU) who battle against the Olden Gods of Mount Othyres. (OSIRIS or SIRIUS)

    The Theogony reveals that when Zeus went to war with the Olden Gods, Typhon, a great and hideous monster, was sent by the Olden Gods to destroy ZEUS:

          "When Zeus vanquished (Typhon), (Typhon) was hurled
          down a crippled wreck. The huge earth groaned. A
          great part of huge earth was scorched by the terrible vapor,

          melting as tin melts...In the glow of a
          blazing fire did the earth melt down."
          (TYPHON was a name of the AR of AN-U.)

    But King ZU-ZU knew this could not last forever.

    King AN-U had suffered much. He would not remain quiet, not for long. AN-u had suffered personal attack and injury, he had lost his tmts Flagship in a coup take-over, and he had lost a second Death Planet in battle. ZU-ZU had caused much damage and loss to AN-U, and he had taken away a key element of the Empire's hold on the Ninth Passageway. AN-U would be understandably angry. His Empire had been challenged!

    But AN-U had much more at stake, the future of the Ninth Passageway was at risk, as was his hold on the throne. Loss of control of the Ninth Passageway system might give the War Queens of ARI-AN reason to side with the Rebel ZU-ZU, mining of precious ores and the production of heavy metals was most critical.

    The Queens would not tolerate this vital industry interfered with. Clearly the King would have to act quickly before the ARI-AN Queens decided to allow ZU-ZU to remain in power as they had permitted his grandfather AL-AL.

    And that was not all that concerned AN-U, Prince EN-LIL, also forced to flee the ARIDU system, had returned to sit in Royal Court of ASA-RRR. The potential threat he posed could not be ignored either. The King faced danger everywhere.

    But before he could act, the King received word that the SSS-T Queens wanted his presence in the ARI-AN Palace. This worried AN-U. He knew they would demand an accounting. His defeat at the hands of the rebel Lord AR-ZU needed to have a resolution and a recourse for alleviation.

    AN-U presented himself before the Queens, a plan for the counter-attack had been drawn up by his DAK Commanders. The argument for immediate action seemed obvious to him.

    The ARI-AN Queens listened in silence as AN-U spoke. In his words were his arguments for the continuance of assaults upon the rebellious star system. On completion of his talk, AN-U felt confident he had made his point.

    As he sat down, he turned to see the Chamber doors open. To his dismay, the rebel King ZU-ZU entered the Court. AN-U stood to protest but was commanded to sit quietly.

    As the upstart Rebel spoke to the Queens, AN-U could not remain seated. Leaping to his feet, he was again ordered to sit down.

    King ZU-ZU made his position clear. He was the rightful King of ARIDU and the people wanted him. The system had not been destroyed, production of metals and the supply of vital minerals could continue. The agreement with his Grandfather would be fulfilled, AR-ZU would honor earlier promises...but WITHOUT the presence of AN-U.

    As he finished, King ZU-ZU sat down.

    The Queens did not speak a word.

    But after a moment, an Elder Queen stood up. Her words were stern. The civil war, regardless of cause, had caused the destruction of TIAMAT, a world crucial to the ARIDU, ASA-RRR and ARI-AN Empires. The lives of millions had been threatened, countless warriors of both systems had died.

    The SSS-T Queens demanded the cessation of hostilities!

    There would be no further destruction! The agreements with King AX»-AL, in the guise of King ZU-ZU, would continue! The war was over!

    To the horror of King AN-U, the Rebel would be permitted to live! Once again, a Royal member of the House of AL-AL-U had thwarted him!

    King AN-U was furious. This he would not permit! There would come a day, he vowed, when the solar system would be a part of the ASA-RRR empire again.
    And so...the Golden Era of ZU-ZU would flourish, if only for a short time.

    The tales of the world under the hand of King ZU-ZU were many. Though a savior to his people, he was still a King... and subject to arbitrary whims. Still things were well.

    But the fates would once again interfere with the future of the ARIDU solar system.

    Shortly after the confrontation in the SSS-T Palace, the ARI-AN Queens would find themselves facing the looming spectre of war with an ages-old enemy. Unfortunately for ZU-ZU, the threat cane from a neighboring star system, not far from his ARIDU solar system.

    Advised of the threatening situation, AN-U recognized an opportunity to remove the Rebel from power. Approaching the ARI-AN Queens, King AN-U made an argument for the removal of the young King ZU-ZU. The Ninth Passageway was vital to the ARI-AN Empire. ZU-ZU, in his ambition to expand his Empire, might be swayed to accept support from the very same enemies who threatened to battle against the SSS-T Queens.

    If ZU-ZU had rebelled against the ASA-RRR Empire WITHOUT aid, why would he not rebel against the SSS-T Queen WITH the support of ARI-AN enemies?

    The ARI-AN Queens paused, and agreed. They would assist the ASA-RRR King in his return to the Ninth Passageway solar system to subdue King ZU-ZU. Lord King AN-U was elated! In this venture, he would not fail. This time, the war armadas of both the SSS-T and the ASA-RRR Empires would join forces!

    By marshalling together his Starships and Warriors alongside the forces of the SSS-T Queens, AN-U had assembled an armada such as had never been seen before.

    The skies of the SIRIAN worlds were filled with Warships and Starships. The ASA-RRR people, the ASA-RR-U, cheered as the King's mighty army made ready its departure.

    Victory was written in the heavens!

    Lord King ZU-ZU was told that a diplomatic entourage was on its way to his solar system Kingdom. By the time he was to learn of the trickery, it would be too late. Cloaked and in silence, the armada of Warships arrived at the outer edge of the ARIDU system before they were detected. This mistake would prove to be fatal to the King and his young Empire.

    The battle was quick and decisive.

    The invasion forces poured into the solar system. IKIKI and DEH forces of AR-ZU were overwhelmed by the sheer number of ASA-RRR and ARI-AN warships. In short time, the invasion forces surrounded the War Planet. But the orders of attack, issued by King AN-U, did not allow for prisoners, DAK-MU was to suffer total annihilation.

    The Starfighters were furious in their decimation of everything on the surface of DAK-MU. The fireballs created by the missile strikes reduced everything, including stone buildings, to cinders and ash. Final strikes with the destructive beams of light and the searing heat beams vaporized everything that remained. What was not blown apart, was burned and melted beyond recognition.

    King ZU-ZU was captured and subdued, sentenced to return to the SIRIAN Star system for punishment. All rebel warrior forces of King ZU-ZU were summarily executed, as were loyal, faithful followers. The entirety of the empire's population would be brutally and cruelly punished... guilty or not.

    The War Planet's surface was obliterated. All traces of life under King ZU-ZU were destroyed. Cities were leveled, forests destroyed. The beauty of the planet and its civilization was no more. All forms of life were destroyed. With no animals or plants to feed its atmosphere, the once living and thriving planet died. Only its red sands remained. The blood red dust became a fitting memorial to the bloodshed of the Solar System War in which billions perished.

    Great Lord King AN-U was relieved. The Evil One, rebel King ZU-ZU was vanquished. The Hand of the ASA-RRR was once again restored to the Ninth Passageway, and the realm of the ARI-AN SSS-T Queens was strengthened once again.

    And so it was peaceful for a time...

    WE ARE SORRY

    ERIDU

    The Starship of Prince EA moved slowly over the land.

    He examined the surface carefully. Enormous glacial ice sheets blanketed most of the upper and lower hemispheres, an equatorial strip was the only part left untouched.

    The Prince and his crew had analyzed the data carefully, the landing sight had already been selected. As the Prince emerged and examined the area, the words of his father. King AN-U, were clear. Rebuild the devastated system, he ordered Prince EA.

    The destruction of the world of ZU-ZU had been complete. The Planet of Red Sands was reduced to dust and rubble. All traces of life were destroyed. Without life and plants, the atmosphere died. Ice sheets formed from the poles almost to the equator, DAK-MU was frozen in its death. And its sister world, DAK-A-MU, had been transformed into a planet of arid, scorched lands and deadly poisonous oceans.

    ARIDU, the once rebuilt home of the Rebel ZU-ZU, was also devastated. Only IRU, TARGALLU, and BAR-BAR-U remained relatively intact.

    The Prince could not imagine what it must have been like to be in the middle of it all, in the center of the battles. He, like his brother, had been forced to flee. He looked up into the heavens. The Prince knew his brother was overhead. Somewhere, on an orbiting military cruiser, he was up above, looking down on him. Prince EN-LIL was Lord of the Airways.

    Re-build, Prince EA was commanded. The Prince looked at the destroyed world. The task would be great, he would make sure to fulfill his father's orders. He would re-build, and he would establish a mining operation, extracting vital ores and precious minerals. He would re-build the paradise world from the war-torn planet...and perhaps, he would do a little more. EA reveled in the thought.

    And so they began, Prince EA and his volunteer crew, the ANUNNAKI. The chosen site for the initial compound had lots of water and fertile soil. Studies had revealed deposits of precious ores far below. It was the logical place to begin.

    Each of the members of the Prince's crew had been chosen because of his or her special skills or abilities. Each one had been assigned the rank of Lord, each had been granted an amount of property in ARIDU, and each was given a fair share of future monetary returns from the new colonies.

    The rewards were generous, the dangers considerable. The Prince had taken his time in selecting his crew, the stakes were high. But he was proud, they were good.

    The first assignment was the construction of the base of Operations. The compound would be built in stone, naturally durable and readily available. But as the ANUNNAKI began to set up the cutting lights and sound carriers, the generators ceased to operate. The natural energy grid lines of energy, common to all worlds, were fluctuating wildly on the planet.

    The 'Great Collision', the event which had created the world they stood on, had caused the inner core to become unstable, thus causing a constant wavering of the energy lines.

    To produce a stable supply of power. Prince EA located a point where six energy lines naturally intersected. Here on the intersection, the Prince erected a large Energy House, a focusing center which would extract sufficient energy to run the construction equipment. Power crystals, specially grown for just such a purpose, were place in the Energy Chambers.

    The Energy House would also hold the Re-animation Center within its walls. Fatally injured technicians must be taken care of immediately. Prince EA could not afford to lose even one of his carefully chosen crew.

    As the dreaded D-K were 'Destroyers of Life, so the ANUNNAKI were known as the K-D, the 'Givers of Life'.

    And, because the irregularly pulsating energy lines made Star ship instruments unreliable, the Energy House was built with four highly reflective triangular sides that allowed an aerial orientation for pilots high above.

    Slowly the power problems began to be resolved.

    But for much of the time, power anomalies made progress difficult in every aspect of the mining and construction projects. Field technicians were forced to perform unexpected physical labor to compensate for failed equipment. The ANUNNAKI were few, the labors many. The ANUNNAKI complained. Prince EA relayed the words to King AN-U, but the King would not hear of their problems. Production would still have to increase!

    The ANUNNAKI felt overworked and ignored, they protested and threatened to cease their labors. Prince EA promised an increase in future rewards. Grudgingly, but with additional recompense promised, the ANUNNAKI returned to their labors.

    Construction and mining/recovery crews switched to lower consumption cutting lights and sound wave movers. But lower consumption meant lower output. Production was slowed down, causing King AN-U concern. To this end. Prince EA began the use of beasts of burden to assist the ANUNNAKI. Progress in the operation slow, but there was progress.

    But in time, the operation was able to begin sending the gold shipments on schedule. Transport ships landed on ARIDU and departed with their vital cargoes. Gold was immediately sent back to ASA-RRR, other precious ores were sent right to the BAR-BAR-u and TARGALLU refineries. Even the tilting and erratic spinning KAKKAB SHANAMMA began to show signs of life on its surface.

    Construction crews completed the stone structures of the compound, making the ARIDU settlement look more like a city, and not a raining camp. And in the center of the compound, a magnificent Agricultural-Biological center was fast becoming the centerpiece of the stone city.

    The Prince had done well, the Great AN-U was pleased.

    Prince EA's Operation had allowed AN-U to retain control of the ARIDU solar system and keep his hold on the Starlanes in the Passageway. EA had succeeded beyond the expectations of his father. His talents as a Genesis Master had been put to the test and had exceeded the task.

    TIAMAT was re-born!

    King AN-U immediately sent a dispatch. 'Old ARIDU', the 'Conquered Place', was dead! 'ERIDU', the 'Enslaved Place', was alive! No one would ever doubt the power, the might and vengeance of the ASA-RRR King again! The name of the colony would serve as a reminder and a warning to anyone who sought to challenge or question the might of the Great AN-U!

    The Hand of AN-U would always be upon ERIDU!

    From ERIDU come the words for EARTH:

          Erde (German)

          ERDA (Old High German)

          Jordh (Icelandic)

          Airtha (Gothic)

          Jord (Danish)

          Erthe (Middle English)

    Prince EA was assigned the title EN-GI, 'Lord of ERIDU'. The devastated world was a living place again!

    EA carefully manipulated and engineered animal and plant life forms that could endure in the harsh environment and poisonous nitrogen air of the planet. Atmospheric conditioning units began to make the air breathable and warmer. Often laboring for many time periods, the Prince gave little thought to rest.

    But the continuing efforts of Prince EA were not without their rewards.

    One of his ambitions, the establishment of a Center for Life Sciences, an agricultural/biological center, was actually, achieved. An above ground laboratory, the Life Center, that produce the hybrid species and hybrid creatures which could be transplanted around the globe.

    The Center became Prince EA's pride and joy, a Garden for Life.

    Once again, the world began to take on the look and feel of a paradise world. Once again, the planet was alive! But though ERIDU was once again a harbinger of life, the planets of DAK-MU (Mars) and DAK-A-MU (Venus) were forbidden to have life once again on its surface. The Great AN-U decreed that both worlds would remain barren, they would serve as warning to any potential challenger.

    Morpheus wrote:The Wrath of AN-U was great!

    The Agricultural Center was also making great strides in creating new and unique life forms capable of surviving the atmosphere of ERIDU. But the experiments occupied Prince EA much of the time, taking him away from administration duties so necessary to a Lord.

    The Great King AN-U was upset.

    The King of ASA-RRR had put Prince EA in charge of ERIDU because of his Genesis abilities.

    Prince EN-LIL, his second son, was to remain in charge of the airways and lanes of the ERIDU solar system. But Prince EN-LIL was once again making sounds of great displeasure in being placed so far away from the Royal Palace of ASA-RRR. This further upset the King.

    And so he moved to resolve the problems.

    Prince EN-LIL was given administrative control of ERIDU, the solar system, the planet and the city. But control over the development and exploitation of the planets would remain with Prince EA. Thus, dominion over ERIDU would be shared! In this way. King AN-U believed he could continue to keep an angry EN-LIL away from the Court, fulfill his ambitions as a Lord of Power, and still utilize the abilities of Prince EA.

    Prince EA, still EN-GI, was shattered and angry. All of his efforts and successes had been ignored, his place in the faraway empire stripped away. In anger, the Prince of Life left ERIDU, moving to a distant region in order to build yet another Agricultural-Biological Center.

    Here, too, he would develop a gold mining operation, but here, he would focus on his passion, the engineering of Life. Joined by his sister, Princess NIN-HUR-SAG, also a Genesis Scientist, both began a renewed effort in the creation of life forms for the planet of ERIDU. And in this effort. Princess NIN-HUR-SAG would be the creator of a 'hybrid' creature that would forever change the destiny of ERIDU and its ASA-RRR Masters.

    In the meantime, Prince EN-LIL would use his own skills to streamline the Operation. Increasing production, calling for additional cargo flights, and demanding increased labors from the ANNUNAKI, Prince EN-LIL produced greater quantities of ore for less cost, and in shorter time. This pleased the Great King AN-U greatly.

    But the demand for higher production stressed the worker ANUNNAKI to the breaking point. Fueled by the isolation and distance from loved ones, the anger of the ANUNNAKI became a work stoppage, a strike. When threatened with punishment, a group of ANUNNAKI attacked the palace of EN-LIL itself. His life threatened. Prince EN-LIL immediately called on AN-U to descend to the faraway Kingdom.

    Angrily the King responded to the call from ERIDU, Both Prince EN-LIL and the ANUNNAKI demanded an audience with the King.

    The angry laborers asked for the immediate removal of Prince EN-LIL. Even the Prince himself asked to be removed, his desire was to return to the far away Royal High Court of ASA-RRR. Quietly yet firmly. Lord Prince EA added his voice to the requests for the re-assignment of his brother. Again faced with a serious situation. King AN-U was forced to make his way to the troubled outpost!

    Arriving in the Palace of ERIDU, AN-U immediately held a hearing for the purpose of resolution of the situation. The voices were loud and angry. Everyone presented his case for the return of Prince EN-LIL to the Court of ASA-RRR. No one asked for his continued rule. When the voices were finally quiet, the wishes of every member of the assembly was clear, EN-LIL must go.

    Everyone turned to the King. He sat in silence, he made no movement- He was sorely troubled, he had hoped that Lord Prince EN-LIL could somehow be kept in ERIDU, The Great and Wise AN-U found himself wanting, needing, a solution.

    Seeing his opportunity, Prince EA stepped forward. With Princess NIN-HUR-SAG at his side, the Prince proposed to his Father and the Assembly, a simple solution. Within the Life Centers, he and the Princess had engineered many hybrids for use in labor in the fields. By utilizing genetic substances from the ASA-RRR people themselves and the genetic materials of ERIDU beasts, hybrid creatures of half ASA-RRR blood were created.

    The creatures retained their natural strengths but also gained sufficient intelligence to understand commands. The earlier success of the 'H-N' Lizard hybrid worker in the underground mines proved the worth of such an experiment.

    Other fabricated beasts, successful in specialized tasks only, were the 'SEMT-UR', a half horse, half ASA-RRR hybrid, capable of carrying burdens long distances; and the powerful 'MENT-UR', a half bull, half ASA-RRR being with a capability of phenomenal feats of strength. The success of the hybrids had encouraged Prince EA and Princess NIN-HUR-SAG to attempt yet another untried combination, one which would resolve the difficulty at hand.

    King AN-U sat forward in his throne. The possibility of a hybrid beast as a solution to his problems was intriguing.

    Prince EA, seeing the interest of the King, turned to an awaiting Princess NIN-HUR-SAG. He motioned to her, she made a gesture into the hallway. The show was about to begin.

    To the surprise of everyone gathered, a huge hairy black beast came forward. It was the 'APA', a beast of the jungle, renowned for its strength and ferocity.
    Cries of protest and fear went up from the assembly, the beast was unchained! But before anyone could move.

    Princess NIN-HUR-SAG gave the beast a command, which the beast calmly and obediently followed. And in the next few moments, while everyone watched, the beast obeyed every command of the Lady Genesis scientist.

    When the demonstration was completed, the Prince explained his idea to the King. The creature, a beast of great strength and limited intelligence could be genetically altered to become a laborer in the mines, taking the hardships away from the ANUNNAKI and freeing them for the more important tasks of construction.

    The Great AN-U was impressed. Indeed the hybrid proposed seemed to be the solution. The murmurs of the ANUNNAKI seemed to be approving, EA felt. He smiled, sure he had succeeded in removing his from ERIDU.

    King AN-U stood up. Prince EA expected good news, ERIDU would be his now, EN-LIL would soon be gone. The dominion of the solar system would finally be rightfully his.

    The King made his pronouncement. Prince EA would begin the immediate genetic changes needed to alter the beast! All ANUNNAKI laborers would return to their operations until the new creature was ready for work in the fields!

    But to the horror of Prince EA, the King ended his words with an announcement that cut like a knife into his being... EN-LIL would remain in charge of ERIDU! The Beast of Prince EA would alleviate the situation and allow EN-LIL to stay!

    Such were the words of the King, so it would be! Prince EA was shattered! He had once again been denied the Throne of ERIDU! EN-LIL, his life-long adversary, was a victor once again!

    Storming from the Palace, Prince EA vowed he would never again enter the ERIDU Palace again until the throne was his! Though he had been the first born son of King AN-U, he would never ascend to the Throne of ASA-RRR because Prince EN-LIL, the younger son, was born to King AN-U by his half-sister, a requirement in the ASA-RRR Rules of Succession.

    And now the Throne of ERIDU had also taken away from him!

    The enmity between the two had extended even to the very purpose of life itself. EN-LIL had believed the purpose of life was to give undying service to the Kings and the Throne of ASA-RRR. But the Genesis Sciences had revealed something highly different to Prince EA. Life controlled was not life evolved, as blasphemous as that might be in ASA-RRR.

    Prince EA saw life as an opportunity for exploration of self. Born of the same blood and world, no two brothers could have been further apart in their ways.

    And so, the words of the Great AN-U added to the already raging feud between the two Princes. Prince EN-LIL would be Lord of the Word (Command) and continue his iron rule, while prince EA would remain the Genesis Lord, developing ERIDU to the expectations of his father.

    Prince EA resigned himself to his task, re-designing the beast his sister had initiated to suit the needs of the work community of the ANUNNAKI. With his sister beside him, the Prince began the intricate procedures. But the anger was in his heart, and would not leave his thoughts.

    And thus the revenge of EA was born. Although directed to use the cellular material from one of the ANUNNAKI Lords, specifically chosen by Prince EN-LIL, Prince EA substituted cells of his own choosing for the experiment. The time for the uncovering of the true identity of the beast would someday come, and he, Prince EA, would have the last laugh.

    Prototype after prototype was tried. Slowly, the beast was developed in intelligence without sacrificing strengths.

    Through experimentation in the field, the final product made its appearance. Rushed into service, the beast immediately proved itself. With strong arms and back, dexterity of hand and intelligent enough to follow instruction, the creature's versatility soon created a strong demand by the ANUNNAKI for additional beasts. The APA hybrid, known as 'ADAPA', was an able beast, ready to serve his masters.

    Prince EN-LIL was unhappy with the beast from the first. He did not trust either the temperament of the creature, nor his brother. The beast was dangerous, controlling it was an undertaking he had no wish to do. There was a foreboding, a sense of trouble in EN-LIL's being, he could not rest easy.

    But forced to use the beast by his father's Word, Prince EN-LIL decided to put the beast in the most perilous of work situations and in the most harsh environments. The creature was an experiment and therefore, expendable. Demanding that beasts who fell from their labors not be relieved, or tended to, the Prince was responsible for the deaths of many of the creatures. They were, after all, only beasts.

    Prince EA received the news with horror! The creatures, his experimental ADAPA beasts, were being worked to death by his brother's orders. The creatures were not labor helpers, they had become slaves, inconsequential, disposable, slaves.

    Prince EA had never felt such anger before. Everything, all of his efforts, were being systematically destroyed, his reclamation of ERIDU, the planet; his successful building of ERIDU, the city; and the creation and engineering of a beast of labor. There was wanton destruction of everything Prince EA had worked so hard for. His entire life's history was an on-going tale of submission to the whims of his brother.

    But now it would come to a halt! Prince EA would strike back. He would have no more of his brother's dominance over his. He would make his brother pay for his sins...through a vehicle unexpected - the beast!

    Returning to the Agricultural Center in ERIDU, Prince EA sought out the beasts in the Garden where they fed. Finding several of them alone, he approached them. Careful planning and precise breeding schedules permitted only certain beasts to mate, and only under the strictest supervision. No beast could mate without the approval of the Lord of the Word, the results could be disastrous.

    But Prince EA, in the Garden, introduced the beasts to a simple pleasure...the pleasure of spontaneous, unsupervised, sex. Reacting from basic instincts, the beasts took to Lord EA's instruction quickly. Playful at first, then earnest in their enjoyment, the beasts frolicked in the Garden.

    The Prince watched as the beasts reveled in the pleasure of intimacy. In a short life filled with agonies and labor, the brief moments of pleasure were a godsend. And with this new knowledge, the beast could be as his Masters, choosing a moment's pleasure without scheduling, without approval!

    The beasts looked back at the Prince, he had given them a little taste of true happiness.

    Their Creator, a Genesis Scientist whose mark was two intertwined strands of DNA, like serpents mating, had endowed them with the knowledge of 'knowing'.

    In time, the clandestine 'behavior' of the beasts became known to their Masters. Lord Prince ENLIL, informed of the beast's disregard of established Commands of Conduct, became furious. An immediate command was issued to round up all of the offending creatures, any and all renegade creatures were to be severely punished and instantly thrown out of the Life Center.

    Prince EN-LIL would tolerate no disobedience!

    Prince EN-LIL knew that somehow his brother had been the cause of the beast's horrendously criminal behavior. Only a Genesis scientist could affect the beast's temperament, only Prince EA could have had access to the creature. EN-LIL was being undermined by his brother, he knew it!

    But EN-LIL was not to be trifled with. To prevent further transgression, a new set of strict Commands for ADAPA beasts still within the Life Center and in the field operations was issued.

    Thus were issued the Commands of the Lord of the Word:

    All beasts in the Agricultural Center must give complete and total obedience to Lord EN-LIL only! Loyalty to Prince EA or any other Lord Creator (K-D) was strictly forbidden.

    All beasts in the Agricultural Center just give complete and total obedience to Lord EN-LIL. All traces of Prince EA and any other Lord Creator (K-D) will be removed. Any beast carrying any remembrances of Prince EA will be punished!

    All beasts in the Agricultural Center must give complete and total obedience to Lord EN-LIL. Any beast uttering evil sounds or angry sounds about Lord EN-LIL will be punished.

    All beasts in the Agricultural Center must give complete and total obedience to Lord EN-LIL! Every beast must attend an obedience lesson every seventh period!

    All beasts in the Agricultural Center must give complete and total obedience to Lord EN-LIL. The pairing together of beasts for mating must be approved by Lord EN-LIL. No beast may mate outside of the pairing approved by the Lord.

    Such were the Commands of the Lord of the Word!

    Prince EN-LIL would not be challenged! He would keep an Iron Hand over ERIDU.

    Let the beasts die in the wilderness! Let Prince EA care for them! They are 'MUS', 'monsters' and deserve no assistance! Let the renegade beast henceforth be called 'ADA-MUS'! Let the females suffer in childbirth! No longer will the birthing chambers be available to them!

    If the beasts of the Garden remain faithful, they shall be allowed to remain. They shall be called ADAPA.

    And so the beast was divided into two groups, the faithful and the unfaithful, the ADAMus and the ADAPA.

    Prince EA was pleased, however. For in the cast-outs, a chance to continue the experiment to create independent life still existed. His desire to fabricate a life form that was intelligent, yet independent of the 'System' that Prince EA, and Prince EN-LIL, had grown up in, was still possible. The beast would have a chance at freedom and independence, something that he, a the Prince of ASA-RRR, had not had.

    The beast had been a testament to the Genesis skills of Prince EA, a Lord K-D. Engineering the combination of brute strength with some measure of intelligence had been tedious, but the Prince wanted more for the creature. Developing the beast's ability to speak had been a priority for Lord EA, it allowed communication with the K-D's and provided a means of measuring progress. Though the beast's vocabulary was quite minimal, it was understandable.

    Locating pockets of the rejected beasts in the wilds, EA and his sister NIN-HUR-SAG began to teach them the skills of survival necessary in the cruel environment.

    From the first fire to the making of simple clothing, from making scratches on cave walls to the reading of symbols, the beast was taken along the path to a higher intelligence by both Lords of the Genesis Sciences. The experimental 'prototype' of Princess NIN-HUR-SAG, had gone through several stages of development, but it had proven to be unique in its abilities.

    In time, several of the beasts exhibited the exceptional ability of learning and communicating its knowledge to other beasts. Prince EA and his sister began to focus most of the attention on them, teaching them so that they might begin to spread the knowledge to others.

    These 'teachers', taught by K-D himself, became known as the 'su', 'They who knew'.

    The 'EA-SU', the teachers spread the 'The Way of EA'.

    A later 'Teacher of Righteousness' would bear the name IESU (Jesus), a variation of EA-SU.

    As the beasts in the wild progressed through the efforts of Prince EA, Lord Prince EN-LIL became further angered with the creatures.

    Though many of the ADAPA beasts still served loyally and faithfully in the ERIDU compound, still the Lord of the Word felt hatred and distrust for the creature.

    The AR Flagship, the ASA-RRR Ship of State, was expected to arrive in ERIDU soon. Knowing that the massive Deathship caused an enormous gravitational pull, the Prince decided to steer the course of the AR into a path he could utilize. By changing the path over the icy poles, the gravitational pull would be strong enough to cause glaciers to fall into ocean.

    This in turn would cause needed environmental changes - If a resultant flooding destroyed the beasts, then so be it!

    The Prince of the Word could justify the sacrifice of the beasts in exchange for the warming of the planet, the increasing of the amount of usable ocean waters, and the end of an ice age gripping the upper and lower hemispheres. All of that was of significantly greater import than the fate of the beast.

    When Lord K-D EA discovered the plans of his brother, he made immediate protest. But the Lord of the Word would give no heed. And to make matters worse. Prince EN-LIL forbade a single ADAMUS be spared, only the loyal ADAPA would be given shelter from the flood waters. The renegade beasts would be sacrificed if necessary, they had broken the Commands. And, the Lord of the word cautioned the Prince, giving warning to the beast was aiding an enemy of the State, a heinous crime!

    Prince EA was trapped! To work with rejected creatures, that was one thing, to give Royal aid was another. With not much choice in the matter. Prince EA gave his solemn oath to remain silent, giving no warning about the impending floods. Though reluctant to accept his brother's Word, Prince EN-LIL continued his plans for the ceremonial arrival of the AR.

    But the Genesis Prince could not allow his beast to die. In secret. Lord EA made plans. Taking several of the beasts to the underground caverns of the 'HEN-T' hybrids, and other beasts to mountain highlands. Prince EA assured the survival of at least some of the beasts. As a final measure. Lord EA had a special cargo ship constructed that would sail far out into the ocean, away from the regions most likely to suffer. With these secret plans.

    Prince EA kept ADAMUS alive and his experiment intact.

    When the mighty AR returned, the floods began as EN-LIL had expected them to. He felt relieved, the beast would not be around to disturb him any more.
    When the floods subsided, and Lord EN-LIL discovered the deceit of his brother, his rage was uncontrollable. The two Princes confronted each other in the ERIDU Palace. Each had betrayed the other.

    Lord EN-LIL had attempted to destroy the prototypes of Prince EA's beast in Its early stages. Lord EA had tried to undo his brother's administration by tampering with the beast's breeding. EN-LIL had tried to destroy the beast with a flood, EA had broken a promise not to warn his creation, the beast.

    Each Prince had committed a crime against the Empire, an act of deliberate sabotage of the assigned duties of a Royal Prince of the Throne. Neither would ever achieve the Throne if that kind of behavior continued. But Prince EA had never believed the Throne of ASA-RRR would ever be his, the Rights of Succession assured him of that. Prince EN-LIL, however, was the Heir Apparent. He could stand to lose everything!

    Prince EN-LIL, Lord of the Word, had no choice. He made a decision. There must be a truce. Never again would he or any one of his Administration interfere with Lord EA's duty, the development of ERIDU and all of its life forms. Lord EA had no alternative but to return the promise. He and all of the K-D's would never interfere with Lord EN-LIL again.

    As a sign of his good intentions. Prince EN-LIL gave his brother agricultural implements for the beast, tools for him so that the beast could learn how to grow his own food. The Genesis Prince was surprised, but grateful for the gift from his brother. In exchange, Prince EA promised to enhance the skills and abilities of certain special hybrids used by Lord EN-LIL in the administration of ERIDU.

    Thus, for a time, the peace on ERIDU came to be. Beasts were allowed to become educated and civilized, the Empire of ERIDU under EN-LIL grew and prospered.

    Genetic manipulation had given the beast the ability for minimal communication and understanding. Through engineered enhancement, the ADAPAS who remained in the Garden were made significantly stronger in analytic thought processing. They became highly intelligent, capable of small-scale decisions, but remained docile and servile.

    Through the use of ADAPAS and HEN-T servants. Prince EN-LIL and the ANUNNAKI were able to make dramatic progress in the ERIDU Operation.

    The ADAMUS beasts, however, uncontrolled in their sexual activity grew quickly in number.

    Genetic manipulation would be more difficult in producing specific traits in them. Any genetic enhancement would be subject to random breeding, the desired results probably watered down. At best, only some of the beasts would retain the desired attributes, most of them would lose the hoped for traits entirely.

    But through personal contact and his EA-SU, Lord EA gave the ADAMUS beast what the ADAPA would never get, a chance to appreciate beauty. Teaching the beast how to enjoy and feel the wonders of art and music, the Prince inculled a sense of self and an awareness of the world around him. Untainted by any influences of the ASA-RRR 'System', the ADAMUS developed a sense of belonging to a family, and a sense of shaping and choosing his own destiny.

    The Prince was pleased. The System would not take hold, not with the beast.

    It had a chance, or so he hoped. In an effort to insure the beast would never again be desirable to the system, Lord EA continued to enhance the sexual drive of the creature. If placed in a situation of choice, labors in the service of the System or pursuit of sexual pleasure, the beast would always choose sex. This would make the beast an undesirable in the eyes of his Brother EN-LIL.

    Two distinct beasts, the ADAPA and the ADAMUSr were part of planet ERIDU. Lord Prince EA, a Master Genesis Sciences, was 'Lord (EL) of the Beasts' (EL-EA or LEO). Prince EN-LIL Lord of the Command, was 'Lord of Obedient Servants'.

    As word of Prince EA's beast spread to neighboring stars and galaxies, another group of Genesis Lords extended a gift to Lord EA. Known as the 'AKHU', they were descended from a bird-like ancestor. The Genesis Lords presented EA with the single strand of DNA filament that provided 'passion'.

    With this one single element, the invisible motivating force that gave a being intense feelings was passed on to the beasts of the Prince. And with this gift, the ADAMUS beast would have even more passion, more feeling, than even the beings of the ASA-RR Empire themselves. Taken from the cells of the AKHU, the offering became known as 'The Gift of the Feather'.

    Thus, the paths of the two beasts, the ADAPAs of EN-LIL, and the ADAMUS of EN-GI or EN-KI, continued to separate. Of the same roots, initially for the same purpose, the two were now on different paths.

    With time. Prince EA and Prince EN-LIL were able to make both groups work together. The ADAPA beasts completed their labors as obedient servants, the ADAMUS beasts completed the labors in exchange for food and supplies. As ERIDU expanded from one compound into many, the use of both beasts became a commonplace occurrence, ERIDU was a world of laboring beasts.

    The World of ERIDU had become the new capitol of the far away solar system, a system nearly destroyed by the War with Lord AR-ZU and his rebels. Its restoration had strengthened the hold of King AN-U on the Ninth Passageway, assuring that his place with the ARI-AN Queens was secure.

    ERIDU, Capitol City; ERIDU, Capitol World; and ERIDU, the solar system, had become a thriving, productive system.

    But the way of the ASA-RRR always involved internal war. Off-spring of both Prince EA and Prince EN-LIL made constant war with each other. Jealousy, envy and sheer want of power motivated members of the Royal families to attack each other and seize holdings. And so long as the Empire itself was in no way imperiled by the Royal wars, they were permitted. It was good for the young to test their war mettle against each other, from these things the Way of the ASA-RRR was born.

    And... since Prince EA had given the beast the ability to learn and retain the knowledge, many Royals began to use the beast in the administration of their small kingdoms, using a beast to control other beasts. To the horror of the Prince, many boasts pledged fidelity to their Lords in exchange for an unending source of food and shelter.

    The one fear of Prince EA had been that the beast might return to the system if its survival was threatened, and now the fear had been realized. But they will had been part of the experiment of the beasts, if Prince EA interfered, he would defeat his own purposes in creating the beast. And so the beast learned war.

    The wars of the Royals were merely planetary chess games with pieces comprised of servants and beasts. Re-animation, a technique for bringing a dead being back to life, and medical transplants, were always available to the Royals in case of an injury or fatality. But crippling injury, wounds and death, that was for the lowly soldiers on the field, that was saved for the beast.

    But the beast proved itself, again and again. Loyal and intelligent, the beast had become vital participants in the running of ERIDU daily events. The ASA-RRR genetic background of the beast had a profound influence in its ability to learn and to adapt to the 'System'.

    Through the guiding efforts of Prince EA, the Royals and the ANUNNAKI, in time the beast was permitted to minister to its own affairs, to run its own small kingdom or territory... as long as it continued to pledge its loyalty and fidelity to one of the Royal Lords...and ultimately, to the Empire of ASA-RRR.

    And BO ADAMA became part of ERIDU. From a role strictly as a slave beast of labor to a role as a contributing member of society (with an understanding of faithfulness to a Lord above), the ADAMA had risen to a place above other creatures of the world, second only to his Lord above.

    The Wars of the Royals raged on, faithful ADAHAS serving on the battle fields for them. ERIDU Kingdoms rose and fell on the backs and the blood of the ADAMAS. Children of Lord EN-LIL and Lord EA constantly challenged each other over the rights of domain and power.

    And so began the era that would see the War of the Great Take-over, an attempt by Lord Prince MARDUK, son of Lord EA, King of the Beasts. An accomplished Master in the skills of the DAK Warriors, Prince MARDUK wanted to become King of the system of ERIDU. Challenging other Royal family members for the Throne, including his uncle. Prince EN-LIL, and even his father. Lord EA, MARDUK would use war, works of intrigue and even the deadly art of betrayal to try to seize the Throne.

    His father, EA, had been deprived of the throne of ERIDU and ASA-RRR... he, MARDUK, would not suffer the same fate.

    But in the midst of his rise to power. Prince MARDUK was wrongfully accused of the assassination of his own brother, Lord Prince DUMUZZI. Refusing to be imprisoned, MARDUK chose to fight against his accusers, taking refuge in a pyramid fort-tress. A hasty council was called, the decision made to end the war by sealing MARDUK into his stone structure. Trapped within. Prince MARDUK was doomed to death.

    But fortune was with him. Several of his followers were able to tunnel up from beneath the structure, thereby giving MARDUK an opportunity to escape. With a bounty on his head. Prince MARDUK fled into the heavens.

    And for a while, peace once again came to ERIDU... but as is the way of the ASA-RRR Empire, it would not last long.

    High above within the stars of the ARI-AN Empire, MARDUK would find an ally, an ages-old enemy of AN-U AND the Queens of the SSS-T Throne.

    Known as 'SSA-TA', 'underground ones', they were part of a reptilian rebel group who inhabited huge caverns within the worlds of the ARI-AN. Constantly threatening the Queens in power, they unceasingly searched for new ways to undermine the rule of the Queens.

    Despised and dreaded, the SSA-TA rebels gave audience to the Prince. Promising them great wealth and power, and full participation in his Empire In exchange for their support, a daunting MARDUK elicited their support.

    Eagerly, the SSA-TA seized the opportunity to support an effort against the ASA-RRR. By weakening the DAK Empire, so too, the SSS-T Queens would be weakened. Perhaps enough so that their own rebellion in ARI-AN would succeed. Sending a communiqué throughout the ARI-AN Empire to their allies, the SSA-TA raised huge numbers of Warriors, each a dedicated and willing enemy of the SSS-T Queens.

    By secretly supporting MARDUK, success in the take-over of the ERIDU colonies would give the SSA-TA rebels a tremendous stranglehold on the Ninth Passageway. The SSS-T Queens would have to negotiate with them. Should the rebellion not succeed, the death of MARDUK would satisfy both the SIRIANS, and the Queen. The failure of a civil war far away from the SSS-T Empire would be tolerated by the Queen.

    Once again the spectre of a War loomed on the horizon of the ERIDU solar system.

    But the success of another rebellion in ERIDU was remote at best. The Great AN-U had gone to great lengths to assure himself that another War of Revolution could not occur.

    To succeed, there would have to be yet another group who would have to give active support to Prince MARDUK, one that had a firm foothold within the ERIDU solar system itself and was part of the integral EN-LIL Forces of Command.

    Deep within the mining operations, the HEN-T hybrids had proven themselves as loyal servants. Long before the ADAMUS had done so, the HEN-T hybrid had risen to a position as one of the Royal families of ERIDU most faithful administrators. And, although many of the Royal off-spring families had used the ADAMUS beast as administrators over other beasts. Prince EN-LIL had continued to use only the HEN-T, considering them to be less of a threat and much more obedient. Key mid-level administration positions were assigned strictly to the HEN-T hybrids and never to an ADAMA beast.

    Unlike the ADAMUS beast. Lord Prince EA had not altered, had not manipulated the HEN-T to a higher intelligence, thus making it more servile and less of a choice maker. But more crucial to the planned War of Darkness by Prince MARDUK, the HEN-T was created from the cellular materials of lizards, it was therefore a reptile!

    As distant relations of the SSA-TA rebels, they could be approached and possibly persuaded.

    With the behind the scenes of the SSA-TA, the Prince and an army of Masters of Deceit began their campaign to seduce the HEN-T servants of Lord EN-LIL. Promising the HEN-T that they would become his administrators, if the take-over was a success, MARDUK and the SSA-TA used every trick to swing the HEN-T over to the rebel side.

    MARDUK even offered shares in the wealth and riches of the Empire and future territory for their control. Their place in the Empire of MARDUK would be second to none but the Prince himself.

    And so the secret take-over began. Using HEN-T hybrids, created and developed by the ARI-AN SSS-T for their own use, the vengeful MARDUK secretly maneuvered his agents deep into the mines, the administrative offices and the Command Forces of EN-LIL himself.

    As the HEN-T hybrids had moved up in the ranks of Prince EN-LIL's administration, they had become known as 'TCHET-T', 'Those of the TCHET' (The 'Word'... the 'Word' being EN-LIL.)

    Referred to as the 'SUET-I' or 'SHET' by the administration members of EN-LIL, they became trusted servants of both Lord Prince EN-LIL himself and the Royal families. Their loyalty was never in doubt, no one suspected the betrayal.

    Slowly and quietly, the conspiracy began- The plot was simple, SSA-TA lizards, trained for subterfuge, would infiltrate the ranks of the HEN-T workers. They would spread the word and recruit their distant cousins to the rebellion. In short time, the SHET were able to persuade the HEN-T lizards to enter the folds of the rebels.

    The HEN-T who joined with the plot became known as 'SHET-I', 'the Secret Ones'.

    Following the initial infiltration of the ranks of HEN-T in the underground operations, the conspiracy moved into the very inner core of the administration of Lord Prince EN-LIL. The Command Forces, including the Communication and Logistic departments, were also targeted. Carefully and deliberately the conspiracy gained a foothold in every department of Lord Prince EN-LIL's administration.

    In time, Prince MARDUK and the hidden SHET-I were ready. Word was given to begin the attack. Invading ERIDU with his warships, MARDUK attacked viciously and unmercifully. ERIDU DAK and BEH forces were surprised. HEN-T workers in communication rooms disrupted messages of the invasion, preventing effective defensive action.

    When finally notified, the DAK Warriors responded in war ships that had been sabotaged, thus rendering them impotent. Many ships were detoured, or given wrong coordinates. ERIDU communications systems went silent. EN-LIL was undone. The SHET-I, and the turn-coat HEN-T hybrids, had done well.

    ERIDU, the island outpost of the ASA-RRR Empire, was now the seized Empire of Lord Prince MARDUK, son of Prince EN-KI and grandson to King AN-U. MAR-DUK had been victorious, the 'War of Take-over', backed by the reptilian rebels, had been successful beyond expectations. The stealth and subterfuge, the hidden deviousness, had prevented direct confrontation.

    Prince EN-LIL and his followers fled back to the distant worlds of ASA-RRR. Prince EA took many of his followers and ADAMUS beasts to his star system, 'BAAL-EA-DAUS' (Pleiades) 'Place of BAAL (Lord) EA DA (The Creator)'.

    The Royal off-spring of both of Lords EA and EN-LIL were also forced to flee. As MARDUK landed on the world of ERIDU his place on the Throne was unchallenged. To insure that no challenge might occur in the future, the Prince immediately ordered a search for any remaining Royal heirs. Their choice would be easy, total subjugation or death. The entire ERIDU Empire would bow to MARDUK, he would see to that.

    Once seated, MARDUK began his final campaign... to change or destroy any records which attributed any heroic or kingly achievements to anyone other than himself. Stone monuments, obelisks and edifices were altered by stone-cutters, tablets of clay or wood were burned or destroyed. No records of any other Monarch would remain. MARDUK had become the beginning and the end of all things, he had appointed himself Lord God and Creator of the Universe.
    Henceforth, he was the 'Sun God RRA'.

    And so the records of ERIDU were changed. The Rulership of RRA MARDUK was total and retroactive.

    Only one change remained to be made. Records were given a new face, but memories were left. Using the mind-altering techniques of his SSA-TA reptilian minions, the new King RRA ordered the systematic alteration of the minds of the beings of ERIDU.

    To accomplish the monumental task, the SSA-TA converted existing structures with chambers for 're-programming'. One by one or in groups, the colonists and the beasts, ADAMA and ADAPA, were promised wealth, property, power, sexual favors, any enticement which would draw the victims into the tunnels leading into the brightly lit 're-programming' rooms. Once inside, memories were erased or altered.

    'Screen' memories, images designed to hide recollection of the event were often implanted.

    The Sun God RRA would be the one and only God of record, the one and only God of memory-Colonists or beasts who refused voluntary treatment were seized and forcibly taken into the memory alteration chamber for adjustment. Some EA-SU fled into the wilderness or high mountains, there to engrave in stone, clues to the secret of the 'Take-over', the Sun God RRA and the SHET... BEFORE their capture and re-programming.

    Somehow the truth would come to light again. The clues, however, would remain hidden, until uncovered and recognized or de-ciphered. (The 'Face on Mars' and the 'Domed Cities of the Moon' are two examples.)

    In time, the SHET-I completed their task. The populace of ERIDU had 'forgotten'.

    As they went their separate ways, however, they each had a vague uneasiness, something was not there anymore, something was missing. And curiously, though they seemed not to have common backgrounds, each remembered, each recalled, a bright light at the end of a tunnel. And., each one knew that they were supposed to go to the light and enter the light...for there their ultimate reward resided.

    As insurance, the SSA-TA took one more precaution.

    To insure the 'Passion' instilled in the Beast, the Gift of the Feather, did not give impetus to rebellion, the rebel lizards constructed huge towers which would transmit a cloud of electronic signals designed to keep the Beast in a fog, a docile state. The electronic blanket also served as a cover preventing outside signals from reaching the Beast.

    No one, not EA, not EN-LIL, nor the ARI-AN Queens would be permitted to contact the Beast.

    To further control the Beast, the Houses of Obedience of Prince EN-LIL, where the Beast visited every seventh day for obedience lessons, were taken over by the SSA-TA.

    Doctrines which would support the Empire became dogma. The teachings, the Ways of EA, became evil and the words of a demon. EA, a life-giving K-D (G-D) became 'DA-EA BA-EL' (Creator EA, Lord Father') the 'Evil One', the 'Diabolic One'.

    But the SHET-I would leave nothing to chance. Should an innocent clay tablet surface with a story of ancient beings, half-man and half-beast; star beings that flew in the skies; or a rebellious God on Mount Olympus... these were the fables and myths of an imaginative primitive man. These were tales of fantasy, nothing more. The 'rational' Man, the 'working' Man, should not concern himself with the things of children.

    The denial of the world before Lord RRA was complete.

    SHET-I lizards who had taken an active part in the takeover and re-programming were elevated to the status of Over-Lords and Administrators of existing systems and laborers. The era of the SIRIAN Lords and Masters was gone. Prince EN-LIL, the Lord of the Word; was gone. The 'Golden' era of growth and development was gone.

    ERIDD, a primitive solar system developed into a stronghold by a King of the Star Sirius; ERIDD, a planet virtually destroyed in a War of Rebellion led by War Lord ZO-ZU (Zeus) and re-constructed by Genesis scientists; ERIDU, the first settlement and city of the re-born planet; ERIDU, the place of conquests and wars, the place of subjugation and kingship from the stars, was now ERIDU, a world with a re-constructed history, a fabricated past, RRA was the Sun God, but the reptiles were in charge.

    As the ASA-RRR had done before them, the SHET-I began to increase the production and efficiency of the Operation. In addition, however, they entered into the development and the production of a new commodity, a drug called 'S-MA'. Once a a drug used only by Kings, the SHET-I began to make and sell the drug to all the galaxy beings. Profits soared and Lord RRA fast became one of the wealthiest Kings in all the Ninth Sector.

    With his amassed riches, RRA built an Empire and an army second to none. His alliance with the SSA-TA had given Lord RRA the wherewithal to keep the AN-U and other Warriors Conquerors at bay. Lord God RRA would live forever!

    Or so he hoped.!

    The Great Lord God RRA ruled with an iron hand, the ways of the ASA-RRR still in his veins. The SHET-I ministered to the rule of ERIDU, efficiently and coldly. But Lord RRA did not trust the SHET-I. If they would betray their own Queen, they would not hesitate to betray Lord RRA.

    The SHET-I were cold-blooded reptiles, unsympathetic to any race. And, even though he was God, RRA was an outsider. Their relationship, their alliance, was business and no more for them. RRA knew they could not be trusted.

    And so Lord RRA moved to place his most trusted priests, and his children, in control of the Empire. Known to all as 'RA-KA', 'RRA, the Lord Father', he instructed his children in the management of the wealth of the Empire. As they were assigned their positions, they became known as 'RA-KA-M', 'a child of RA'. (Later times would see KA-M converted to KAM, the name for a shield. This would give the children of RA a new name, 'RA-KAM', 'those of RA's Shield')

    To keep control of the crucial Re-animation Center, Lord RRA had selected an elite group of priests to protect and be responsible for the chambers. They would also serve as Lord Administrators of the affairs of the Empire. Recognized as the 'RA-KA-PER-A-A', or the 'RA-KA Pharaohs', they served as loyal minions to the Lord RRA.

    But the Lord God RRA was not omnipotent. His power, his Empire, was dependent on the SHET-I. Recognizing his Throne was vulnerable, Lord God RRA reconsidered the possibility of a re-union with the Empire of ASA-RRR. His wealth and power surely gave him bargaining power, he felt. Lord God RRA was in need of another alliance to protect himself.

    It was - however - too late.

    Before he could do anything, in the darkness of night, a coup took place. No violence, no battle, the SHET-I simply.

    and quietly, took everything over. As the sun rose over the palace, the SHET-I were in control. All elite Warrior guard forces of the Lord RRA were imprisoned or eliminated. There remained only the task of capturing God RRA himself.

    But fate was with the Sun King. Loyal followers of the King entered his Royal quarters to rouse him from his sleep. To his good fortune, an escape plan had been devised to take him away from the grasp of his pursuers- With the reptilian guards at his heels, Lord RRA narrowly escaped.

    As he gazed down from his starship high above, he looked down on what was once his magnificent empire, but now it was gone. The Kingdom of RRA was no more.

    With the departure of Lord RRA, the era of the Empire of Sirian Rulership over ERIDU was over. ERIDU, a solar system that had suffered through devastating and destructive wars, had fallen to the SSA-TA reptiles without battle. The under ground beings had successfully undone the Empires of the Sun God RRA, the Prince EN-LIL, the Great King AN-U and even the ARI-AN SSS-T Queens.

    The SSA-TA became Lords of the S-MA market, a profitable illicit trade, and Masters of the Ninth Passageway, the Star lanes necessary for travel to and from the Central Stars and the ARI-AN Empire.

    In one quick, bold move, the SSA-TA made themselves one of the most powerful and richest races in the Ninth Sector. Control of the solar system would not be left to chance, manipulation of the minds of all the inhabitants, including the control of the minds of the Off-spring of RRA, his trusted Priests and all members of RRA's court, was done immediately and completely.

    What Lord RRA had started... the SSA-TA would finish. Erasure of memories and the control of minds would be expanded to include his own family and court. Henceforth, the RA'S SHIELD and the RAKA PHARAOH'S would be the faithful, if unwitting, servants of the Reptiles.

    The ADAMA beasts continued to labor for their new Lords, unaware of the changes, unaware that they were slaves. Life meant working daily for the Masters. If the beast performed well, the future meant being put out to pasture.

    Somewhere, in the dim recesses of its mind, the beast recalled memories of a past life.

    'There is more than what we are being told...' the beast would say to itself.

    The beast was right...

    NAASHA a term which meant 'to be strong, be great' was depicted in early Hieroglyphs by an arm with a whip. In later eras, it was changed to a 'lizard' glyph. No explanation has ever been offered.

    PESTCH-T, a term meaning 'First and Greatest Nine' Gods' was depicted in early glyphs by an axe. The later eras, the axe symbols became crocodiles. No explanation has ever been offered.

    THE SHET-I

    For the last four thousand years, Man has been deceived.

    The SHET-I are still here. Native Americans who know of them call them 'CHET-U', 'Lizard Men', Hidden in the darkness, they emerge from their lairs to torment and use humans for their own purposes.

    The SHET-I are known today as...the 'GREYS'.

    Created from the genetic materials of the SSS beings and the ASA-RRR beings themselves, the SHET-I are hybrid lizards who retain many of the characteristics of their progenitors.

    As the ASA-RRR Beings (EA, EN-LIL, AN-U, etc.) had large cranial lobes (larger brain capacity) so do the GREYS. But, large black eyes are more reminiscent of the SSS tendency to enormous eyes, particularly if they tend to inhabit caverns, underground chambers, where light would be minimal.

    The SHET-I also retained the generally shorter height of their small lizard ancestry and the smaller frailness of the body. Comparison of limbs to small lizards will show a very strong similarity.

    As descendants of the SSS reptiles, the SHET-I have also retained the skin color and the skin texture of reptiles. A mottled grey to pale beige in skin color, the SHET-I skin is cold and 'clammy' to the touch. Though the ASA-RRR beings had nostril and ear flares, the SHET-I tend to have not much more than holes for both nostrils and ears (reminiscent of a snake.) Their 'hands' are reptilian, clawed and webbed.

    Various reports reveal that the cranium of the GREYS has a definite crystalline bone ridge separating the hemispheres of the brain. This is a direct result of the 'enhancements' Prince EA made on the SHETI. Crystalline bone in the brain permits greater receptivity of control signals.

    A secondary report reveals that the GREYS are possessed of a two heart system, its significance to be discussed later. There is virtually no gastro-intestinal tract, it has shrunk to near nothingness because of persistent use of glandulars. Reproductive organs are generally not present, reproduction is not a function of the GREY existence.

    For thousands of years, the GREYS have been the primary, though not the only, agents behind the phenomena known to us as 'abductions'. Utilizing the mind altering techniques of their SSA-TA ancestors, the GREYS continue to erase memories and altar minds as a 'mask' for hiding the experience from a victim.

    Abductees virtually always report memory losses, an altered state of mind generally unchanged unless an external memory 'jog' or hypnosis retrieval occurs.

    Numerous psychologists report implanted memories, apparently intended to screen the actual event, buried within the psyche of the abduction victim. Often the memories change a fear of large-eyed GREYS into fear of large-eyed owls, deer, and other animals.

    Though alteration of the minds of abduction victims can, and sometimes does, enhance mental abilities (i.e., psychic, clairvoyance, clairaudience, etc.) the purpose of the abduction is not benevolent, but rather, to erase 'inappropriate' memories or to prepare the subjects for other purposes.

    The universal reports of mind manipulation, complete and unstoppable body 'shut-down', memory implantation and memory erasures confirm that the ancient methods of the SSA-TA have not been mythical but, in fact, are techniques used by GREYS today. Likewise, the SHET-I lizards are NOT mythical beings born of the imagination of a civilization thousands of years ago, they are real.

    And they reside alongside us, watching over us, performing abductions and erasing our memories like a video tape blank...as it serves their purposes.

    We are theirs...

    ...for now.

    THE WAR

    Having read the materials in these Papers, the Reader is certainly asking himself or herself:

    If what the author has proposed in these Papers is true, then where are THEY now?

    Where are the SSS-T reptiles?

    Where are the ASA-RRR beings EA, EN-LIL or AN-U? Are the SSS-TA rebel reptiles still in control? Are the wars over ERIDU (Earth) over? Are they gone?

    The answer is a simple...no.

    Over the last two thousand years, several attempts have been made to try to undermine the strangle-hold of the rebel reptilian SSA-TA. One of the most recent attempts was by an arm of the SSS Empire itself. By penetrating the electronic blanket and contacting a vulnerable human being named Adolph Hitler, who freely admitted to visitations by the 'Old Ones' a world wide 'ARYAN' movement, spear-headed by an elite 'SS' corps, nearly succeeds in over-throwing the entirety of our 'docile' world.

    If, as the author suggests, the ARI-AN continue in their efforts to take back the solar system, new movements derived directly from the SSS should manifest themselves. They will appear in the form of 'ARYAN' Supremacy groups such as Skinheads, White Brotherhoods, Neo-Nazis, etc.

    Reptiles as 'Heroic', or 'friendly', beings, fighting on Nan's behalf, will appear in all aspects of media. Figures like Barney, Teen-aged Mutant Turtles and other Super-heroes will become our children's heroes and role models. Reptiles particularly in the form of dinosaurs will appear everywhere on our tiny world.

    The SIRIANS, the original creators of the religions used to control Man, have also attempted take-overs. Recurrences of religious fervor have gripped the globe in past eras, the Inquisition, the Papal Wars, the numerous 'Messiahs' and the 'Miracle Sightings' have all been efforts to bring Man back into the folds of the ASA-RRR influence.

    If they too, are trying to take over Earth as the Author suggests, then a return to fundamentalism should also occur.

    Though the image of the angel as protectors of Mankind began with Prince EN-KI, 'EN-KI-ELS', 'Lords of EN-KI' (EA), later powers of the Church removed the angel figure from Prince EA and assigned to its own domain. To establish itself as the only Salvation of Man's future, the Church (ASA-RRR system), in the form and image of angels will appear everywhere!

    As a signal to SIRIAN followers that the AR Starship has departed for this solar system, images of enormous planetary Starships and crews comprised of heroic saviors of Mankind, and the Earth, will be everywhere. There are 'good' heavenly bodies headed our way.

    To counter the image of 'good' heavenly bodies, the SSA-TA reptiles are filling the airwaves with images of 'falling asteroids', crashing comets, both intended to cause concern in the world populace, giving justification for aiming anti-asteroid missies skyward for 'defensive' purposes.

    Because the electronic blanket placed over Man and Earth is so pervasive and intense, other transmitted signals, from the ARi-AH and ASA-RRR forces, are prevented or garbled.

    In an attempt to communicate with Men, especially those who are able to remember or decipher the 'clues', visual signals are being sent. They are called 'Crop Circles'.

    Crop circles intended for the Sirian underground forces bear a striking resemblance towards ancient Egyptian glyphs. Crop circles intended for the forces of Lord RA often have a football shaped design (the 'mouth' of RA), or a circle with a dot in the center (the 'Sun God RA'). Circles reminiscent the Celtic Cross and other 'Cross' forms are intended for Sirian guerrillas, letting them know they are not forgotten.

    Crop circles intended for the ARI-AN forces often have a snake-like form. Insect or bug-like creatures are also part of the communication attempt.

    Mathematical formations (Mandelbrot, Triangles, etc) are signals from Prince EA to the Beast to 'hang on'. He is not forgetting his 'renegade experiment'.
    Some crop circles are 'graffiti' placed by 'passers-by' wanting to 'play on the sidewalk'. Others are deliberately altered crop circles, distorted by our own governments or an agency thereof, to prevent 'too much information' from being released to the public.

    The world of Man is being bombarded by signals of the on going war. 'Memory jogs' in the form of movies, books, magazine ads, comic books, advertisements and commercials are a daily occurrence, visible if only Man will look... and listen.

    Will it be disturbing to Mankind? Yes.

    But the 'Farm' must not be disturbed. No one wants the 'Farm' destroyed. And, since its attending Beasts (Mankind) may stampede in the upcoming solar system wars, and thus may cause destruction to the Farm, the Beast must be controlled.

    Implanting a mind control device would be desirable, but unfortunately is highly impractical. If a control device in the brain is not feasible, then an external device placed in the immediate proximity of the brain is a viable alternative But how can the Beast be fitted for and be expected to carry the device... voluntarily? The Beast must be deceived.

    The human brain functions on electronic frequencies that are matched by only one device on the retail market today, a device called a cellular phone. Fait accompli!

    New personal electronic devices, another form of control units, will also increase in number and variety. Cassettes, CD players with headphones, virtual reality headgear, brain wave analyzers, lap top computers, personal pagers, beepers, and a host of new devices will keep Man 'blanketed' with the numbing and controlling electronic blanket.

    Drugs, in the form of medicines, mood changers, diet and weight control, pain relievers, sleep aids and sleep preventers will also be used to control Man. Recreational drugs, including cigarettes, alcohol and narcotics, are yet another part of the control programs designed to keep Man docile.

    To avoid any chance that Man will be motivated to take a stand against any of the battling groups, and fight for himself, behavior modification will require that no human being be allowed status as 'Hero'.

    Therefore, only people who are examples of 'appropriate' behavior, will receive recognition and awards.

    Victims, martyrs, tortured pow's, people who die in service of their country... all examples of humans who do not fight back but endure great suffering... these will be the new 'Heroes', the new role models. Any human coming too close to Hero status, who behaves independently, will be the target of smear campaigns and worse, all intended to 'bring them down'.

    Population control must increase in intensity and in the numbers of programs. Only the 'right' men and women will be allowed to continue within the system of the 'Farm'.

    Disappearances and abductions, particularly of women and the youngest children will increase - 'Thinning out' undesirable populations will increase - New mysterious airborne diseases will be developed. Present-day medical treatments will be a thing of the past, minimally effective if at all. (The HENTA 'break-out', the HENT-T lizards? A coincidence?)

    Obesity will increase, passivity will become desirable, and sexual dysfunction will increase in males. An increase in electronic transmissions will cause most female menstrual cycles to shorten from 28 days to near 25 day periods.

    To maintain control of Mankind, NASA must be eliminated, or at least severely restricted in its scope. Man must stay stranded on Planet Earth. The search for intelligent life must not be continued. It must be abandoned. A false claim of discovery may be made, but the end results must re-affirm the futility of such a search.

    The stage is set. The War is engaged. ERIDU is the prize, Man is the servant.

    So long as Man seeks salvation 'out there', he paves the way for Beings vying to become his Overlords.

    MAN

    UFO's either they exist or they do not...

    If they do not exist, then the story you have just read, the tale of Gods and worlds, rebellions and "take-overs', is but the rantings and ravings of a demented story-teller.

    If they do exist, then why is our government so vehement in its denial of their existence?

    There are more photos and video tapes of UFO's than of a natural phenomena scientists call 'ball lightning'. Yet the 'ball lightning' enigma is listed in encyclopedias and texts accepted in all science classes in our public schools.

    There are more first-hand witnesses to UFO's, all reliable and professional, than there are to the 'ball lightning' phenomena. Government records show that many investigations of UFO's have been conducted by various agencies, even while denying publicly that they exist.

    If they exist,

    Why haven't they responded to our signals for contact?

    Why haven't we 'heard' from them?

    Why are no radio signals being received?

    Could there be, as the Author suggests, an electronic blanket, preventing them from reaching us?

    Or are we being shunned?

    Are we kept in the dark to avoid a world wide panic?

    If they are benevolent, there would be no panic, there would be rejoicing in-the streets, elation in every life.

    Man and an Extra-terrestrial being working together, what grander event could there be?

    And if they are benevolent, why deal only with the world governments?

    Would they not be more effective revealing the purpose of their presence to every person on this Earth?

    Are they prevented by some form of inter-galactic law to interfere in our life-form's development?

    If there is such a law, who are the 'channeled' entities the world is flooded with?

    If truly they are channeled, if truly they are benevolent, then the intergalactic law has been broken and we are free to be contacted en masse and in full view of all people of our planet.

    Setting aside channeling for a moment, if there is a law of non-interference, are not abductions a violation of that very same rule? If abductions are benevolent, why are world residents not advised of their wondrous benefits? Would we not rush to be 'treated' as abductees are?

    Setting aside abductions. If there is a law preventing a benevolent Extra-terrestrial contact, would not the prayers of millions of human beings asking for 'divine intervention' be enough to persuade them to make contact? Or are they not willing to assist because we have not filled out the 'right' forms or followed appropriate channels?

    If they are truly benevolent, concerned with the welfare of Mankind, the non-interference clause fails to explain why they have not made contact with us. In fact, no 'rational' argument for non-contact presents itself.

    Is the Author arguing that UFOs and ETs are malevolent? No.

    They are self-serving. Benevolence or malevolence is in the eye of the beholder. If Man serves them well, he shall be rewarded. That is benevolence. If Man chooses not to be of service, he will become expendable.

    Is that malevolence?

    The Hidden History of Planet Earth ...continued

             We are not alone.
             The astronomers are wrong. The scientists are wrong.
             They are here, but we cannot see them because they hide. They hide...in plain sight.
             We are their servants, we are their slaves, we are their property,
             we are theirs.
             
    ERIDANUS, our galaxy, is the home of billions of Beings, Star races as varied as the stars themselves, but each race born of the same evolutionary formula.

    From the first spark of Life to the birth of a single cell; from the splitting of the cell, to the formation of simple-celled amoebas and then to highly complex water creatures; from the first large fish I beings to the emergence of land creatures, each race of Star Peoples has essentially followed the same path...from simple cellular structure to complex 'humanoid', such is the 'norm' of our galaxy.

    Humanoid is the rule, NOT the exception.

    Star Races are descended of Reptiles, Insects, Birds and other forms of life Mankind could not begin to imagine. Two races of Star Beings monopolize the history of our galaxy... and our Earth.

    In the Ninth Sector, one of the oldest Star Races is the reptilian ARI-AN. Descended from dinosaurian ancestors, the ARI-AN Queens have created the single-most powerful galactic Empire in this sector of ERIDANUS.

    Possessed of Warriors of unmatched ferocity and bravery (referred as the M-K or M-G), the ARI-AN Empire was unequaled in power and size.

    Millions of years of countless battles had honed the War Sciences of the ARI-AN Empire to near perfection.

    New methodologies had been developed. Conquered populations were an asset rather than a liability. Resistance was eliminated by simply re-programming the minds of the 'difficult ones'. An able-bodied enemy of the state became an obedient servant of the Throne with but a simple operation.

    The hold of the ARI-AN on the Ninth Sector was virtually total, and most definitely unyielding. Until the time of an unexpected evolvement of yet another Star system.

    This second Star Race was one descended of dog-creatures similar to wolves. They were known as KANUS, Wolf Beings of the Star system SIRIUS (the Dog Star).

    Their Empire was not as old nor as evolved as the ARI-AN Kingdom, but the fervor, the fierceness of its Warriors (known as the D-K or T-K) was vicious and barbaric, sufficiently so as to concern even the most disciplined of ARI-AN M-K Warriors.

    Cutting through an enemy's armies and then stopping to devour the flesh of the fallen, the D-K soldiers provided their Kings with conquest upon conquest. As their Empire grew, the KANUS Kings began to concern the ARI-AN Queens.

    A 'Star Lane' known as the PESH-METEN (Ninth Passageway) was a vital super-starway linking the inner Central Stars to the outermost edges of the galaxy. By controlling this Star Lane, the ARI-AN Queens maintained power over their Empire, collected revenues, and influenced the political affairs of the Central Stars.

    The expansion of the Sirian Kings began to encroach on the PESH METEN, a possibility the Queens were not willing to permit.

    The Queens approached the Sirian King with an offer for an alliance. If the KANUS Kings would agree to pledge their loyalty to the ARI-AN Queens, the Queens would allow them to maintain control of the outer portion of the Starway, making profit and wielding power over Passageway traffic. Should a rejection of the Alliance offer be the result, the Queens of ARI-AN would have no choice but to obliterate the Sirius War Forces...and the Sirius star system itself.

    The Sirian Kings recognized the power granted them in an alliance with the ARI-AN Queens and quickly accepted. Thus, the Alliance of Reptilian Queens and Wolfish Kings was born. M-K Warriors and D-K Warriors would fight side by side... the star systems of ARI-AN (Orion) and SIRIUS were allied.

    And for a time, peace reigned in the Ninth Sector.

    The new star system was born very nearly on the Starway, its position very clearly a place from which the Sirian King could further strengthen his hold on the Passageway and make his position more secure in the affairs of the galaxy. New worlds are also sources of untapped precious metals and ores as well as vital elemental compounds.

    The Sirian King quickly claimed the new star system and began to exploit its resources. The star system BAD became a crucial outpost to both the Sirians and Orions. Power and wealth for both Empires continued to grow.

    But a coup in the Sirian Royal court forced the King who had been responsible for the development of the new star and its worlds to flee for his life. Residents of the new solar system eagerly greeted their benefactor, granting him haven. And in his colony outpost, the King continued to develop the worlds and moons of BAD.

    Striking up an agreement with the Orion Queens, the King agreed to pay tribute to both the ARI-AN and KANUS thrones, in exchange for his safety. Though the new Sirian King, AN, wanted the death of the deposed King, he was forced to obey, to accept the agreement forced upon him by the Queens.

    And again, for a short time... peace reigned.

    The way of Conquerors demands constant vigilance. Power is not bequeathed... it is taken... or lost. Such is the way of both Orion and Sirian Empires. The King or Queen who is caught 'sleeping' will most likely remain asleep... forever.

    The death of the deposed King in the outpost worlds gave the Sirian King reason to rejoice, his long time hated rival was gone. But the grandson of the now-silent deposed King, an angry young Prince, ascended to power...and with him came the 'Great Rebellion'.

    Lord ZU, known as ZU-ZU (ZUZ), threw out the Sirian King and the D-K Warriors. The loyalty of the BAD peoples and an uncanny knack for battle, permitted the Lord King ZUZ to win against the faraway stars of Sirius. The 'Golden Age' of an ancient God ZUZ on Mount AL-AMBU-Z (Olympus) was at hand.

    But time would work against the young King.

    The forces of both the Orion and Sirian Empires would join against him. The solar system BAD would suffer the full force of the Warships and their weaponry. Every trace of the rebellious and upstart Lord King ZU would be eliminated. Entire worlds and their peoples were destroyed, moons and their small colonies were be demolished. The wrath of the King AN was merciless and total, there would be no remains...and no prisoners.

    The Golden Era of ZUZ was over.

    Millions of years later, King AN would dispatch his son, a Genesis scientist to re-build the destroyed worlds. Much needed resources and the strategic value of the outpost star system was far too important to allow it to remain dormant.

    Through the efforts of the young Prince, one planet was brought back to life. The young Genesis Creator brought the atmosphere back to life, the seas once more filled with life and movement. Plants, trees and flowers appeared on surface lands, creatures were hybridized... life once again walked on the world given up for dead. ERIDU rose from the ashes!

    Workers and technicians came with their families, cities flourished, the recovery operations for precious metals, ore and elements began to thrive. Settlers came from many parts of the Ninth Sector to become residents of the new world.

    The young Prince continued to fabricate new creatures to inhabit the planet, one...an ape-beast hybrid. Its one and only purpose was to serve the Lords and Masters, to slave in the fields and mines for a heavenly empire needing precious metals and elements, such was the fate of the Beast.

    Sirian Kings, Princes and Princesses came to govern over the new worlds.

    Jealously, greed and the way of Conquerors came to be part of life on ERIDU. The young Prince Creator, the Genesis scientist who had rebuilt the world, was removed as Lord of Dominion.

    The Empire, the sustaining of the very system itself, was paramount. The creation of life, experiments exploring the potentials of a new creature, would have to be set aside. And so the young Prince was replaced, by his own brother as the Lord of Dominion.

    And so too, the Saga of the Beast, the Enlightenment and the Enslavement of Man, continues...

    THE EA-SU

    Prince EA found the Beast in the Garden at the center of the Bio-Agricultural complex.

    The creature would be the key that would undo EN-LIL's dominion on ERIDU. The Beast could mate only under the strictest of conditions, and only with a specifically selected partner. The genetic breeding programs had to be carefully controlled. The Empire depended on work forces composed of subservient and obedient laborers.

    The angry Prince decided to shake the very foundation of the new colony outpost. He would reveal to the Beast the secret knowledge of the Gods...mating could be engaged in at any time and for the sheer pleasure of it. While the slaves must place labor before all else, the Lords placed pleasures above all. Servants toiled endlessly so that Masters could revel in the intoxicating pleasures of erotica.

    The Beasts were given the knowledge of 'knowing' each other at will.

    The Prince taught the creature how to have a clandestine rendezvous, how to hide from over-seers, and where to search for hidden places to enjoy their newly acquired knowledge. And the Beast enjoyed himself...and enjoyed himself.

    But the Beast would be discovered. His transgression, a crime against the State, could not be hidden. His nakedness easily revealed his state of arousal. The Guardians had no difficulty in catching the transgressors. Even the females displayed outward signs, though on a much more subtle scale.

    The offending Beasts were ejected from the Gardens, they became known as the ADA-MUS, the 'monster creatures'. Loyal Beasts remained, they were known as the ADAPAS, 'wise ones'. These Beast workers were allowed to stay in the Garden... but the Commands under which they would live increased in number and severity. Punishment became more brutal.

    Prince EA became the embodiment of Evil itself. Any and all works of the Prince were labeled 'anti-State', thus the works of the worst criminal.- DA-EA .(The Creator-EA), BA-EL (Father-Lord) once the Lord Father Creator EA had become the DA-EA-BA-EL (Diablo-Devil), the 'Evil One'.

    For several thousand years, the turmoil-continued. Lord Prince EA would pay a price for his crime, but he was first son to the King himself. The offending Beasts had been sent into exile, certain death awaited them. Prince EA would not be allowed the power he once had, his honors stripped. Once a proud Prince, he was allowed to remain in the colonies but would never again be a force of influence.

    Though powerless, the Prince continued his work with the rejected Beast. In these wretched creatures, he could see a possibility, life unfettered by a system. Life pursuing the path of its choice, life living for the sake of life.

    Instructed to create special schools to teach the loyal minions of Prince EN-LIL in the secrets of the Sciences, the beaten Prince EA began to build the 'Brotherhood', those who would become the administrators and priests of Lord EN-LIL. The symbol of the Sciences, and Knowledge itself, was an easily recognized serpent (a tribute to the reptilian ARI-AN Queens and the Empire itself).

    Thus the initiates of these schools became known as the 'Brotherhood of the Snake'.

    But the schools, gave Prince EA an idea. The Beast would be given the opportunity to learn the secrets as well!

    Secretly the Prince held meetings with the Beasts in the hillside 'caves'. The caves became known as the 'TCHE-L-US' (The Word-Place-of; 'Place of the Word or Teachings'). Over the many years of seemingly endless travail, the 'Tche-l-us' -(Che-r-ush/Sheirosh/Church) gave hope to the Beast. Stories of the lost paradise were often spoken of, but the memories were so distant that they had become vague at best.

    Schooling of the Beast began with simple lessons in survival, cooking with fire and hunting, creating shelter, making simple traps and avoiding the dangers of the wilds. The Beast learned and began to pass his skills on to his young.

    To the pleasant surprise of the Prince, some Beasts were able to learn quickly and eagerly sought more knowledge. In excited anticipation, the Prince began to instruct the Beast in the hidden arts he had begun to teach in EN-LIL's Mystery schools. And the creature learned!

    The cave meetings remained secret, the Beasts who showed promise as teachers became known as 'EA-SU' ('EA-Wise Ones') or 'Children of EA/Children of the Serpent'. (The symbol of Prince EA, a Genesis scientist, was a pflftr of serpents, not the single serpent of the Brotherhood. Prince EA, himself, 'was called 'The Lord Serpent' or 'The Serpent'. He was thus to become the Serpent Seducer in Eden.)

    The EA-SU began their missions, to teach other creatures what they had learned from the Serpent Prince. As they made their way into the wilderness. Prince EA stood proudly, they had learned and had become Teachers in their own right. The EA-SU could help lead the way to a life of free will.

    But Prince EN-LIL learned of the hidden schools and immediately implemented his own plans. Dispatching loyal Beast hybrids created by his own Genesis scientists. Prince EN-LIL infiltrated the cave schools. Masquerading as EA-SU, EN-LIL loyalists created their own 'cherish', confusing the Beasts and creating dissension.

    The Prince of the Word was pleased with his minions, they had confused the creatures. With the false EA-SU words, the Beasts could no longer understand nor communicate with each other...it was no more than babble.

    The false EA-SU smiled, the true EA-SO wept.

    RA

    The take-over had been successful.

    Lord Prince MAR-DUK, first son of the reviled Creator God EA, had become the 'One and Only... Sun God RA'. The SHETI lizards had re-programmed all remaining subjects on ERIDU. The rebel SSA-TA Queens of the ARI-AN underground worlds had given support to WAR-DUK with the understanding that SHETI lizards would become the administrators of the new Empire. They had done their job well, MAR-DUK would keep them around...for a while.

    With their memories gone, the Beasts were loyal and very eager servants.

    Other Sirian family members also gave faith and allegiance to RA, they too had lost their memories. And so it was that the Empire entered a glorious phase, everyone aspired to the same goal...to praise and serve the Sun God.

    The Mystery Schools became the source of priests who had but one thought, to praise the Lord RA from whom all things, all beings, all wisdom had come. The secrets of the galaxy, and the Universe, came through the mouth of RA.

    And so too, the 'cheirosh' became targets of the Lord RA and the SHETI. Where once the teachings were those of Lord Prince EA, now they were of 'RA-LEG-US' ('RA-Laws/Words-of') - 'Place of the Words of RA'. (RA-leg-us/Religion). Here too, the purpose of the priesthood and brotherhood was to perpetuate the confusion and keep the truth away from both Beasts and Sirian Lords alike.

    Where once all Beasts and Sirian subjects were forced to praise the Sirian Lords and ultimately give greater honor to the ARI-AN Queens, Lord RA, with the approval of the SSA-TA rebel Queens, began to systematically remove all traces of a Mother Goddess presence. Henceforth, the Omnipotent One was a male...the Sun God RA himself. Males would dominate every aspect of life, it was time for females to relinquish their exalted place of power.

    The SHETI lizards, with their cousin HENTA lizards, were originally recognized for their uncanny abilities with stone cutting equipment. Using their sound cutters and heat beams with incredible accuracy, the lizards with robot-like precision could produce stone structures that needed no mortar or binding agent to keep them together.

    These creatures, SHETI and HENTA lizard hyrids, crucial to the ministration of Lord Sun God RA's Empire, were the original 'stone-masons'.

    [Note - The Egyptian glyph for Mason is, 'HUN-U'. 'HUN' is the root word meaning 'Lizard'. 'HUN-U' is literally ' - One who is - of the Lizards']

    The Sun God had become 'The One and Only God-King'.

    But 'The King' was concerned with the lizards. They had become too powerful. No aspect of the Empire was untouched by their hand, no position of administration was devoid of a SHETI/HENTA presence. With care and secrecy, the Sun God RA attempted to shift the wealth and power away from the lizard controllers... but to no avail. It was too late.

    The SHETI/HENTA and SATA rebels seized the Empire... with no battles, with no weaponfire... they simply shut everything off. The Sun God could not communicate with anyone, the Sun God could not Issue orders, the Sun God could not rule. The Sun God was undone.

    With little recourse, the Once and Only King fled in his starship back to the heavens.

    The SHETI lizards changed nothing. The Empire continued functioning as it had before. Though the subjects of ERIDU had been programmed to forget their history, the acceptance of One Omnipotent God would not be altered. It served quite well the needs of the lizards. They assumed the role of the Lord of the Word EN-LIL, they took over the role of the Lord of Creation Prince EA and they set up all institutions which would govern Man, his life and his destiny.

    The Sun God was gone, the Lizard Kings were in charge.

    Mystery schools were closed by Thut-mose, remaining open only to a select few. Only the Stone-mason off-spring could participate. In every corner of the realm, the Masons would control the secrets and hidden knowledge of the Universe.

    Sirian descendants of the original NIBIRU Lords became a target for the New Empire. Their wealth and power, inherent birth-rights, begin to be stripped away. They are viewed as potential threats to the State. The N-IBIRU (IBIRU/HEBREW) are treated as undesirables and are enslaved by the Empire's New Order.

    The stage for Exodus is set.

    Moses, an IBRU (Hebrew) child, is set adrift in a river. An attendant to the Princess, daughter of the Pharaoh, finds the child floating in the reeds. She rescues him and takes to the Princess. The Royal maiden takes him to her chambers and raises him as her own. Grown and a young man, Moses has an opportunity to study in the 'Mystery Schools'. He learns the-ways of the Masons but is taught to believe in One-God.

    In time Moses discovers his true Identity. Feeling that he is betrayed, he strikes out at a guard who has threatened an IBRU slave. The guard dies, Moses becomes a cast-out.

    In the desert mountains, he encounters a small ship, its bright lights are blinding. The crew is composed of Sirians who seek revenge on the lizards. The Commander speaks to an awe-struck Moses. He promises Moses the Lord of the Word is willing to support him if he moves against the Pharaoh. The Commander and crew seek to free the trapped IBRU descendants from their oppressors.

    Moses returns to the Palace, scared but convinced that a powerful GOD is behind him. The crew of the Sirian ship and a small back-up squadron descend on the Palace and its armed guards. They create a series of distractions while Moses is gathering the IBRU people together.

    Death rains down from the sky on the Pharaoh's people as the IBRU flee with Moses in the lead. The Sirian ships move quickly and decisively. They vow to give their descendants a chance to escape. As the Pharaoh's armies give chase, the Sirian ships attack with destructive laser lights. With one final effort, the Starships part the waters of the sea which blocks the Exodus. When the IBRU have passed, the waters of the sea are allowed to cascade back on the pursuers.

    The story of the parting of the waters is true, the IBRU escape because of extra-terrestrial assistance. The Sirians leave, their task accomplished. The lizards are unconcerned with the effort, they are still in control.

    Moses continues to be contacted by the Sirian commander. He is told about the Lord of the World and the evil beings in control of the Empire. Moses instructs the IBRU to cast the bronze statue of a serpent, the galactic symbol of Knowledge and Wisdom, it is called 'NA-HUSH-TAN'. It is a sign to the Sirians King and the Orion Queens that the IBRU remain loyal to the true Lord of the Word.

    The IBRU Patriarch is summoned to the mountaintop, there , to receive once again the Commands issued by Prince EN-LIL. Moses is given two flat crystals, each with a library of the i history of Earth. Moses brings the crystals down and orders his followers to create a gilded box to house the crystals. When placed in the 'ARK', the two crystals become active and become a communication device. Two handlers come too close land touch the Ark when it is 'powering up'. They short cir-I cult the box and destroy the crystals.

    The Commander cannot afford additional crystals. Moses, feeling responsible, punishes himself, vowing not to proceed into the Promised Land when the IBRU arrive. His followers believe GOD has punished Moses for his killing of the guard.

    The Exodus has caused the New Empire to search out ships from Sirius or Orion. The Commander and his squadron are in jeopardy and are forced to leave. Without communication and support, Moses and the IBRU wander through the desert lands, trying to avoid detection and seeking shelter.

    A parched arid land is found where the tribes decide to settle. The lizards believe the IBRU are not worth pursuit, they leave them to die in the desert.

    The IBRU descendants, tired and hungry, carve out a niche where they will hang on.

    A group of ARI-AN M-G Warriors, who abandoned the Queens in power in the Orion Stars to Join the Sirian forces, leave the New Empire to form a colony of their own in the mountain regions of what is now India.

    Though once Sirian loyalists, they are known as the 'ARYANS'. Light-skinned and possessed of a Warrior's blood, they move south towards the plateaus.

    Well schooled in Sirian secrets, they establish 'Mystery Schools' of their own. Promising not to challenge or undermine the New Empire, they agree to share their knowledge and secrets with the Mason initiates of the Egyptian Empire.

    In secret, their loyalty remained with the Sirians. The Sirian Star Beings are known as ASAR-U ('Sirius-Those of'). The ARYAN religion praises the Heavenly Beings called ASURA. Faithful to the ways of the Sirians, they establish what has come to known as the 'caste' system, a way in which power is centered in the High Priesthood and the elite.

    The Warrior class wields power second only to the elite. The Administrators follow, with the beastly undesirables at the bottom of the hierarchy. Obedience is stressed, faithful execution of one's duties will be rewarded in the future lives. A search for spiritual enlightenment is discouraged, only service to the Gods is the way to heaven.

    A replica of Sirian ways, Hinduism is born.

    Though confused and misdirected, the ARYAN religion uses the symbol of the combined Empires of Sirius and Orion as an emblem of its own, when the ARI-AN Queens and the Conqueror Kings of Sirius joined in alliance, they adopted the sign of a swirling star galaxy as their mark. The four-armed galaxy mark was called 'SSS-DAK-U' ('SSS-DAK-of'; Swastika).

    The lizard administrators watched with wary eyes but did not interfere with the ARYANS effort to establish themselves in ERIDU. Additional religions in ERIDU did not concern the reptiles, confusion worked to their advantage. Cut off from 'heavenly' support, no ERIDU faction was a threat.

    The lizards were in control.

    Sirian DAK Warriors who had once stood proudly beside an all-powerful Sun God RA were known as the 'RA-IM' (RA-at the side of). Powerful and courageous, their memories removed, they leave Egypt to settle in lands on the northern shore of what is now the Mediterranean. Called DAKANS (heavenly-DAK) or DRAKANS, they become known as ETRUSCANS. They establish the land that will be called Italy.

    The RA-IM begin to build their own Empire. Distant long lost memories of two brothers (Prince EA and Prince EN-LIL), both raised in the Sirius ways and the co-founders of ERIDU, linger in the minds of the RA-IM. The dim memories of these Princes is the foundation of the RA-IM (Roman) tale of Remus Romulus.

    The legendary co-founders of Rome, Remus and Romulus are said to have been suckled and raised by a She-wolf.

    The RA-IM leaders build a strong Empire and begin to war with the Egyptians. The lizards are unconcerned. They have control and do not prevent Roman expansion. They manipulate the leadership of the RA-IM government through mind control. Confusion works well for the purposes of the lizards.

    Rome is firmly established as an Empire.

    IESU

    The SSS-IM (ESSKNES) are schooled in the Aryan (ARI-AN) 'Mysteries'.

    They keep to themselves in the desert lands of the ancient Middle East. The Initiates believe one of their own can ascend to the Throne of Earth. But the Anointed One must be descended of the Lord of the Word (Sirian), and must be joined with a descendant of the Mother Goddess (Orion).

    The SSS-IM inner circle begins its search for a possible candidate. The future King must be an Initiate, schooled in the 'Mysteries'... and one of them.

    A second group of Initiates, schooled in 'Mysteries' of the Sirians, secretly align themselves with ASAR (Sirius)

    They are the N-ASAR-IM (Of Heaven-Sirius) or Nazarenes. The N-AZAR-IM and IBRU Initiates with each other for power.

    A baby is born in the ancient Middle East, he is born of the Sirian line through the House of David. Orion Initiates feel he, along with several others, are potential candidates for the Kingship of Earth. The Orion MAGI (M-G) come to pay their respects and to plant the seed of his possible future.

    As a youngster, Joshua lives a normal life, but upon his coming of age, he is sent to the Eastern 'Mystery' schools, there to receive his schooling. Joshua learns what the King must know and what he must do. He is taught that he is also the 'Son of GOD', the One and Only GOD. He is being groomed for the Priesthood and a position of power.

    The 'Mystery' schools continue to perpetuate the myth of One GOD, that reward comes upon death. 'Salvation' is based upon service to the Church, sacrifice of self and unwavering faith. The foundation of the lizard Empire is based upon an unquestioning obedience and lack of challenge to GOD, for in fact, the lizards have assumed the place and guise of GOD.

    Joshua becomes an Initiate but finds himself questioning that which he has been taught. Something is not quite right and a feeling that there is more than what he is being told haunts him. Vague memories race through his mind, feelings, thoughts of blasphemy and sacrilegious topics flood his very being. He seeks the solace of the desert, perhaps there the uneasiness will abate. He feels he must cleanse his soul.

    The desert is lonely at night. Joshua is nervous. When the shadowy figure approached him, he was ready to flee. An unfamiliar recognition soothed his concerns, the stranger in night was an EA-SU, one of the few remaining teachers of the secrets of Prince EA.

    As the Teacher sat down next to him, Joshua could sense his life was about to change. For the next hours, the dark stranger began to speak of the 'Mysteries', Joshua was somewhat relieved, he too was an Initiate.

    But as the hours passed by, the stranger added pieces to the puzzle that Joshua had not heard before. Joshua felt an urgent hunger to hear more. The stranger continued. As the hours turned into days, the days turned into weeks.

    When the time came, the Teacher stood up. Joshua was in a state of exhilaration and anticipation. And as quickly as he had appeared, the stranger silently walked away. Joshua, his world turned upside down, sat down and wept. The words of the stranger were true, he knew that. He cried because a world that was unaware, asleep to the truth, was before him.

    Joshua had been blessed and cursed. Knowledge unused is Knowledge wasted. Joshua had been placed in a situation not of his choosing...at least not in this world. He would have to move, have to act... or be guilty of the crime of inaction and aiding the oppressors of Mankind.

    The KA-SU would come to him again, Joshua knew that, but any actions taken would have to come from Joshua himself. A time would come when he would have to act, for now he would have to make plans. It would take years, he thought, but it would worth the wait.

    Joshua was, after all, a 'Chosen One' was he not?

    He had wondered why the name had been selected, now he knew. He was IESU... he was EA-SU too.

    IESU had heard that there was another 'Anointed One' not far away in the desert (IESU could sympathize). It was not la great surprise when he discovered that the 'other one' was 'also of the same bloodline as he was. It was with some dismay, however, that he found out the 'other one' was elder to IESU, thus requiring IESU to step aside.

    But fate was with IESU, for though John the Baptist took priority because of his age, John's reputation would bring a quick end to his existence. On hearing of the beheading of his cousin John, IESU continued to plan his future. It had been fortunate that John had baptized him, others would find it much easier to accept his role as a Man of the cloth.

    To become a Rabbi, he would have to be married, that was the Tradition and Law. But to fulfill the prophecies, those requirements for the 'Anointed One' demanded that he be wed to a descendant of the Mother Goddess herself. To that end, IESU found and took to his side, Mary Magdalene.

    They were wed and she bore children.

    IESU had become full-fledged Rabbi, with all appropriate rights and responsibilities. He was both an Initiate and an honored Rabbi. The early requirements of the prophecies had been fulfilled.

    It was now time to begin the final stages.

    IESU knew he would need public support. Caiaphas, Head-priest of the Temple, and even Pontius Pilate, would find it difficult to attack a man who had the people's sympathy. It would be even worse if he was a holy man.

    IESU moved through the countryside, acting as counselor, healer and people's advocate. The masses loved him and his gentle ways. But in secret, he attacked the Roman guard and stripped them of their weapons. As time passed, he gathered a small group of followers.

    Though donations were coming in to support his cause, the funds were too small to support an increasing band. It was with some trepidation that he moved to attack the moneychanger's tables in the marketplace. The plan was simple, IESU himself would create the distraction, his followers would take the money from the money-lenders.

    IESU strode purposefully into the marketplace. Everyone felt that the money-changers were practicing licensed thievery, but with the sanction of the Temple, the money-changers could do as they wished. Assured that the public would give him support, IESU began to overturn the tables of money. As the people cheered him on, his followers grabbed up the coin that they could, then scattered in all directions when Roman guards appeared.

    As IESU had expected, the public supported his action with great favor. The Temple Sanhedrin, however, saw him as an outlaw that needed to be disposed of.

    The plan had been flawless, but the actual execution had resulted in an unexpected outcome. The eldest son of IESU, in his excitement, had not noticed the guards' arrival. The result was that he had been captured. IESU was worried, the Head Priest could put his son to death. His plans were most assuredly dangerous, he had been ready to give up his life, if necessary, but to lose his son would be too much.

    IESU's death would not prevent his son claiming the throne, but the. death of his eldest son would mean the throne would be lost, gone forever, to everyone in his family.

    And so, IESU planned to free his son. The Sanhedrin had long been searching for him, IESU would give them the chance to find him. He called for his most trusted disciple Judas, and bade him go to Caiaphas, High Priest of the Temple, and pretend to betray IESU.

    Reluctantly, Judas did so, playing his role to his best. The Temple guard arrested IESU, taking him to Pontius Pilate for execution. But Pilate wished no. part of the politics of the Jews. He had been biding his time until he could return to Rome. Any trouble in his out-post would reflect badly on Pilate, and so he rejected any part of the Sanhedrin's plot to kill IESU.

    Caiaphas would not be denied. He descended on Herod and demanded the death of the upstart. But Herod did not want a problem with the Romans. If Pilate would have nothing to do with the execution, he too would not bow to the demands of a boisterous Sanhedrin.

    Turned away again, Caiphas returns to Pilate.

    He threatens a revolt of the entire territory should the execution of IESU is denied him again. But Pilate believes he can outwit Caiaphas. He fabricates an offer of clemency because of a vague holiday. He offers to free any prisoner, anyone the mob chooses. He assumes they will choose IESU, a rabble King.

    IESU's followers immediately call for BARABBAS surprising Pilate. BARABBAS is the first born son of IESU. (BAR-RABBI, 'Son-of the Rabbi')

    Caiaphas mob also takes up the chant for BARABBAS. The death of IESU is their goal. The prisoner is freed, IESU's son is safe. But the mob is not satisfied, they are paid to call for the execution of IESU. Reluctantly, Pilate agrees to whip IESU to appease the thirsty cries for blood.

    Pilate whips IESU, his followers weep. The sight of his blood feeds the frenzy. The riots promised by Caiaphas are about to explode before Pilate. He begs IESU to recant his claim to Kingship of the Jews. IESU will not. The original plan had been to have IESU hanged on the cross for crimes to the Roman state. Heresy would suffice if the punishment was the same.

    While studying in the far east, IESU had learned of many medicinal herbs. With the help of Joseph of Arimathea, IESU had a plan to beat death on the cross. A little known herb, when ingested, would cause the drinker to lapse into a faint similar to death. This would be the secret that would allow him to become resurrected as only a God could.

    IESU is taken to the hillside and crucified. Joseph has bribed the guards. Traditionally, the criminal has his legs broken so that he could not support his weight. This is not done to IESU.

    On a given cue, one of the bribed guards places a sponge into the prepared concoction. The sponge is put on the end of his lance and is extended to IESU to drink. Those nearby believe it to be water, but it smells strangely of vinegar.

    IESU 'drinks greedily'. Within moments, his head falls. He is unconscious, everyone believes him dead. A guard who has not been bribed tests to see if IESU is alive by thrusting his lance in his side. As the spear pierces the side of IESU, blood flows freely. His still beating heart causes an out-pouring of blood, IESU is still alive. To the horror of Joseph and the disciples, he has been stabbed.

    Quickly, Joseph comes forward to claim the body from the guards, claiming IESU Is dead. But Hebrew tradition forbade anyone to touch a dead body, even loved ones. Joseph knows IESU is alive, no tradition or law is violated. But IESU is wounded, it is vital that they move him to a cave where they can treat him in secret.
    They move the body to a cave in a Garden that belongs to Joseph. A boulder is moved to cover the entrance, a hidden doctor waits to tend to IESU. He is alive but the wound has seriously injured him. He must be moved to a safer location where he can heal.

    Under the cover of darkness, IESU is moved. The cave is found empty the next morning, IESU is gone. The legend of a resurrected Son of God is about to be born.

    Convinced the Rabbi is safe, Joseph moves to protect the family of IESU. Preparations had already been made to whisk Mary and the children away in a hired boat. As the boat and its cargo departs, IESU is told they are on their way. They will be safe.

    Joseph makes his way to the southern shores of what will become known as France. Followers come with the family, the Jews establish a colony. IESU had wanted to claim the throne of Earth for Mankind...and its children. He had intended to discard the 'system', to waken Mankind to the lizards. Time had worked against him.

    IESU died in the far east, his wife and children were well, the blood of IESU survived. The lizards were still unconcerned, the 'Omnipotent GOD' concept is unchallenged. The manipulation of minds and the re-programming continued.

    Nothing had changed.

    250 A.D.  

    Followers of IESU are declared enemies of the Temple and the Hebrew faith. The Hebrew (IBR) persecute the Christians (NZR). Rome is persuaded the Christians are enemies of the state as well. Followers of IESU are hunted down.

    The disciple Paul, not well accepted by other disciples, 'uses his connections' in Rome to spare himself. He survives a purge that others do not. He manipulates the teachings and words of IESU for his own political purposes.

    His writings and interpretations form the foundation of the early church.

    325 A.D.

    Three hundred years later, Constantine believes that the Hebrew prophecies of a heavenly Messiah are not fulfilled by IESU.

    Even the Jews do not accept him as the Deliverer. In his eyes, he, Constantine, is much closer to being the true Messiah than IESU ever was. With his armies, he had seized all the lands of influence and power. Only one power eluded him, the throne of Earth. He turns to Christianity, hoping that the church will declare him the true Savior Messiah.

    He convenes the Council of Nicea. Its task is to gather together all the stories of the prophesied Hebrew 'Messiah'. Constantine believes the collection will support his contention that he should be the King of Earth. Though the Church becomes extremely powerful with his endorsement, the declaration that he is the Messiah is not forthcoming. Elevating

    Constantine to the status of the Son of God would force relinquishment of newly acquired power, something the Church is not ready to do. IESU is dead, the Church is his agent. The Church is unaware descendants of IESU are alive.
     
     525 A.D.

     ' MOHAMMED (M-K-M) is visited as he sleeps. A heavenly being enters his dreams and reveals a plan for a new faith.

    An Orion M-K faction has managed to sneak into ERIDU. Their target is a man who could potentially seize the Throne. The religion of 'Islam' is born, it means 'surrender'. Islam is demanding, it total surrender to GOD is mandatory. Mohammed organizes the Moslems into a military power. They move into and conquer the Holy Lands.

    The message of the maverick IESU is twisted. Christianity under Constantine becomes a political power, supporting the very 'systems' that IESU had tried to undo.

    Off-spring of IESU return to the Holy Land. It is their intent to declare their descendancy and claim the place that is truly theirs. The Christian Church is horrified. Should the off-spring prove their lineage, all the power and riches of the Church would have to be relinquished.

    They launch a hunt for the SANGRE' REAL ('Blood-Royal'), the Royal Blood of IESU. Crusaders misinterpret the words, they believe they search for the SAN'GRAAL, a Holy container of the blood of Christ. The first Crusade is an attempt to hunt down the Church's greatest threat, IESU's children. It is claimed that the Crusades are launched to seize back Holy Lands taken away by the Moslems.

    The Knights Templar are gathered together to protect the family of IESU. They distinguish themselves and gain wealth and power, all the while keeping their secret. When forced to kiss the Crucifix in later times, they refuse. They spit on the Cross and trample it underfoot. They knew the Church was based on falsehood. The children of IESU are alive, the Church is NOT the true Voice of God.

    The 'ASSASSINS' ('SSS-EN'; Orion-Lords of) are a secret society that used drugs to induce hypnotic states.

         Manipulation of the mind is the cornerstone of their cult. Led by a man who had been contacted by an Orion reptilian soldier, the ASSASSIN cult proves to be a powerful force in the Wars against the Crusaders. An Orion faction hidden on ERIDU, is trying to protect the children of IESU. The blood of Queens runs in their veins.

    The lizard Empire is still unconcerned. Wars and political confusion works to their advantage. The Omnipotent One GOD concept remains unchallenged, their hold on the world is strong. No one knows they play the role of GOD.

    Germanic Power is centralized in Hesse (SSS), one of the most powerful states in Germany. Charlemagne establishes a secret society called 'Rosicrucians'. They are an order of the 'Brotherhood of The Snake' and later become known as the 'Order of the Illuminati', the 'Enlightened Ones'.
    The Church is convinced the threat of the descendants of IESU has been eliminated.

    Pope Innocent IV centralizes the power of the Papacy in the capital city of Rome.

    Numerous penetrations of ERIDU by Sirian and Orion crews worries the lizards. Several 'Secret Societies' have formed under the influence of these crews. The lizards begin hunts for the 'underground' crews. Though the One God institution is still strong, too many new 'Enlightened Ones' begin to be apparent. The lizards cannot take a chance that the 'Truth' a leaks out.

     The Hunt and Inquisition are simultaneous. Sky and earth are scourged. Battles in the skies are seen over Europe. Destroyed in the skies, ships break apart. Chemicals and alien bacteria 'rain down from the sky. The Black Plague breaks out. Large numbers of UFO sightings accompany later outbreaks of Plague [in all areas of Europe and Asia.

    The lizard hunt continues for hundreds of years, battles ' result in the destruction of the Orion and Sirian crews that have tried to work behind the scenes to break the lizard New Empire. Fall-out from the war infects the human populations with Black Plague. Over 100 million die in the 400 years of lizard retaliation.
     
    History cannot explain the sporadic and strange sudden appearances and disappearances of the Plague.

    1350 A.D.

    The Christian Church blames the Jews (IBRU) for the outbreaks of the Black Plague. They are expelled from Europe. When once the Hebrew (IBR) persecuted the Christians (NZR), now the Christians (NZR) persecuted the Hebrew (IBR).
     
    1500 A.D.

    The Medici family is given the power to collect dues and fees for the Church of Rome under Pope John XXIII. They are fast becoming the most prominent Bankers in Europe.
     

    1600 A.D.

    The Bank of Amsterdam is formed. It is the first 'bank' that institutes the Science of Money, issuing notes against assets held, oftentimes more notes than asset value.

    The 'Glorious Revolution' puts William III of Orange, of the German House of Orange-Nassau, on the Throne of England. William III is a Freemason. The German House manufactures a war against England, then rents hired soldiers to England to fight in them. This is repeated several times, the English treasury is looted.

    The Bank of England is formed under a plan created by a Scotsman, William Paterson, a Mason. The Bank of France is formed under the plan created by another Scotsman, John Law. He too is a Mason.

    The lizards intend to solidify their hold on the wealth of the planet. Sirian and Orion crews that sneak in cannot be allowed to possibly undermine their power base. Banking must be centralized.
     
    1700 A.D.

    Rag-tag, frustrated Europeans flee to the New World in a deliberately to leave behind the 'system' that persecutes them and empties their coffers.
     
    The lizards see an opportunity to exploit new lands.

        In 1694, Rosicrucian leaders create a colony in Pennsylvania in the New World.
        In 1730, Daniel Coxe is appointed Grand Master of Lodges in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
        In 1733, Henry Price becomes Grand Master of the Boston Lodge in Massachusetts.
        In 1752, George Washington is initiated into Freemasonry at the age of 20.

    Freemasons in the Revolutionary War include: George Washington, Benjamin Franklin (since 1731), Alexander Hamilton, Patrick Henry, Henry Knox, James Madison and Grand Masters: Paul Revere, James Clinton and John Hancock. (Both George Washington and Benjamin Franklin were also Masters.) Of 14,000 officers in the Continental array, nearly 2100 were Freemasons.

    Baron von Steuben, a German soldier who disciplined and trained Washington's troops is a Freemason. L^Marquis de La Fayette, a skilled military man who sailed to America to aid the revolutionaries is a Freemason. Fredrick of Prussia, an ardent supporter of the colonists, was a Freemason.
    The Boston Tea Party is led by members of the St. Andrew Masonic Lodge on 6 December 1773.

    The Masons have a firm hold on the New World.

    The dollar bill is designed by William Barton. The 'All Seeing Eye' is a Freemason symbol. It perpetuates the myth of the Omnipotent God. 'NOVUS ORDO SECOLORUM' is written in the banner at the bottom, it means 'Beginning of a New Order of Ages' (The New World Order).

    It is a direct reference to the New Empire of the lizards. An innocent looking pyramid represents the birth place of the Masonic guilds. It is the symbol of the original stone-cutters. The eagle on the back of the bill was originally a 'phoenix', a creature which has risen from the ashes. It too refers to the rise of a New Empire from the. burning away of the old. The 'phoenix' is not replaced until 1841.

    The Bank of the United States is chartered by Alexander Hamilton in 1791, he is a Freemason. In 1863, the Bank will become the Federal Reserve Bank.

    Presidents who have been or are Freemasons include:

        George Washington, James A Madison, James Monroe, Andrew Jackson, James Polk, James Buchanan, Andrew Johnson, Wm. McKinley, James Garfield, 'Teddy' Roosevelt, Howard Taft Warren Harding, Franklin Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman, and Gerald Ford. J. Edgar Hoover was also a Freemason.

    King George I of England was a Hannover (a German house) who did not speak English.

    He believed his Throne was but a temporary position until he could return to a seat of power in Germany. While he sat on the Throne of England, his mind and focus continued to be on German business affairs. From 1700 until 1901, a royal of the House of Hannover sat on the throne of England every year. The House of Windsor of Queen Elizabeth is descended from the House of Hannover.

    It is the practice of the Secret Societies, guided by an unseen lizard hand, to create wars and provide both sides an army for hire and/or an arsenal. War is profit.

    1800 A.D.

    In 1836, the 'League of the Just' is another one of the Secret Societies begun by a Mason.
     
    It is the first Society that Karl Marx joins. He is directed and guided towards the concept of a One World Order, a euphemism for a totalitarian rule by the lizards. While he is a member of the League, he writes the Communist Manifesto.

    The 'League of the Just' becomes the 'Communist League'. Communism declares that everyone is equal, that no one owns anything, that everyone shares equally from a community pool of goods but that the first step to this ideal state must be a political dictatorship. (This is justification for a total control by the lizard Empire.)

    The Round Table, a secret society patterned after Freemasonry, was established by Cecil Rhodes, a diamond and gold mining magnate. (Rhodes scholarships are named for him) His altruistic ideas for assisting the masses are changed by his cronies on the Round Table to become methods by which masses can be manipulated.
     
    The Round Table becomes a central gathering for powerful organizations such as the Carnegie United Kingdom Trust, numerous J.P. Morgan associations, virtually all Rockefeller organizations, etc. In the United States, a newly formed 'Council on Foreign Relations' becomes the working front for the Round Table.

    1900 A.D.

    Houston Stewart Chamberlain writes the Foundation of the Nineteenth Century, a work suggesting that Germany is easily the best nation suited to bring about manifestation of a New Order in Europe. Emperor Wilhelm Kaiser of Germany endorses the work, his efforts to establish 'Aryan Supremacy' begin.

    The manipulation of the Secret Societies continues by an unseen lizard hand. An assassin from the Black Hand Society of central Europe, murders Austrian Archduke Ferdinand. The incident sparks the beginning of World War I.

    Jacob Schiff, an American citizen linked to the powerful German Houses and the Rothschild family, finances the effort known as the Bolshevik Revolution. Lenin is given his start on the world stage. It is 1917.

    After the Revolution, the Secret Police in Russia are in virtual total political control. It later becomes the KGB.

    The Five Year plan is instituted in Russia. Labor camps provide cheap labor for the 'Masters'. Land and property is 'collectivized'. Thirty-five to forty million people die in the labor camps from 1917-1950.

    THE TAKE-OVER ATTEMPT

    The reptilian Queens of Orion had become impatient. The SSS-T Council is ordered to dispatch an elite team of Psych-Warriors to ERIDU to attempt a take-over.

    Their task is not easy.

    They must locate a human being with powerful connections that can be mind-manipulated into a take-over attempt against the rebel lizard Empire. The Orion team arrives, it utilizes hidden caverns once used by their ancestors as its base of operations. The search for the right candidate must begin immediately.

    In his early twenties, Adolph Hitler was a devastatingly poor young man. He uses drugs to achieve 'higher levels of consciousness'. Ernest Pretzsche, a mystic bookstore owner, is described as 'toad-looking'. (He is a lizard hybrid). He introduces Hitler to German mysticism and Herr Von List, one of occultism's most vocal of advocates. He also believes an Aryan race of super-beings resides hidden deep in the bowels of Earth. It is they who guide Man.

    Adolph Hitler enlists in World War I and earns the 'Iron Cross-First Class' as a corporal. He is injured by mustard gas and is hospitalized. While there, he is treated for the symptoms of psychopathic hysteria. His doctor, Wm. Forster, uses induced visions to relieve Hitler's blindness. Hitler is released cured of 'hysterical blindness' but is convinced that he is the Messiah.

    He also believes that the Aryans of Germany are destined to become the Master Race of Mankind.

    The Orion Psych-Warriors have found their candidate.

    Hitler begins espionage duties in Munich. He earns his position in the 'Political' department of the Army District Command. He assassinates German officials who surrendered during World War I, an act he considers to be a betrayal of the German people. The elite members of the Army District Command are members of the 'Thule Society', a group that is supported by the German High Command. (The Thule Society is recognized as a Society of Assassins.)

    In 1920, Hitler declares the formation of the infamous Nazi Party at a rally in Munich. Rudolph Hess is appointed Minister of Propaganda. Heinrich Himmler is appointed Head of the Gestapo. Hitler and his henchmen feel that somehow the secret police, the most powerful arm of the Third Reich would best be called the 'SS'.

    The Aryan 'SS'... the Psych-Team smiles.

    The 'SS' is a secret society comprised of members that must be initiated. It is called the 'Schutzstaffel'. Only pure Aryan soldiers are permitted to join.
    Hitler is proclaimed the German Messiah of prophecy by Stewart Chamberlain, the same man who influenced the Kaiser to begin his Aryan supremacy goals years earlier.

    I.G. Farben, a giant German Chemical company, enters in to a business relationship with the 'SS', providing the gas and chemicals for the extermination camps begun by Himmler.

    Also working with I.G. Farben as business partners with the Third Reich (after war was declared!) were ITT and General Electric. Both ITT and GE continue to provide electricity, communication systems and necessary materials to the German state.

    Ford Motor companies in Germany continue to produce vehicles for Adolph Hitler.

    On the I.G. Farben Board of Directors are:

        Max and Paul Warburg, both heads of banks in Germany and instrumental in the beginning of the Federal Reserve Bank in the U.S.

        H.A. Metz, Director of the Manhattan Bank (a Warburg Bank later to become the Chase Manhattan Bank-a Rockefeller link)

        the Director of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and of the National City Bank, C.E. Mitchell

        Montague Norman, the Director of the Bank of England itself

    Prince Bernhard, another member of the House of Orange, is a member of the 'SS' and an employee of the I.G. Farben company. After the war he becomes Chairman of the Board of Shell Oil. The Prince will later form the 'Bilderbergers', and chairs the meetings until 1970.

    The Orion Psych-Team has put together a movement formed of some of the most powerful people and entities on Earth. The Third Reich appears headed for successful take-over of the entire world. The Psych-Team have successfully worried the lizards.

    Hitler relies heavily on the 'Secret Ones' to guide him in his movements. They have protected him more than once, rescuing him from certain death.

    But, during the course of the war. Hitler constantly uses cocaine, morphine, strychnine, painkillers and sedatives. As the war progresses, he increases his drug use to relieve the stress. Though he is still guided by the 'Secret Ones', the drugs make him think he can accept or reject their advice as he pleases.

    The Psych-Team is worried Hitler will destroy their war plans for a take-over.

    [Note: Hitler, Goering, Hess, and Himmler are all members of a Secret society. FDR and his successor, Harry S. Truman are both Freemasons. Japanese military leaders are members of the Black Dragon Society. World War II pits members of the world's most powerful secret societies against each other.]

    THE ATTEMPTED TAKE-OVER

    The confidence of the lizards is shaken. The take-over attempt is dangerously close to success. It becomes clear they must use their most powerful weapon to end the threat.

    The War is going badly for Europe. Though the American leadership has given support, it is not enough. It is very clear the people of the United States do not want to enter the war. It is necessary to find a reason that will create a strong desire in the decision to join the war.

    The President and his military advisors are aware of an attack planned on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese. Instead of warning the Hawaiian naval forces, they decide to with-hold the information. An attack on Pearl harbor could justify a declaration of war that would be strongly supported by the American public.

    Early morning December 7, 1941, the Japanese attack the naval base at Pearl Harbor. The President and his advisors underestimate the strength of the Japanese forces, the base is virtually destroyed. The devastation leaves the western coast of the United States nearly defenseless. Nothing can stop the Japanese if they choose to move on to California.

    The lizards are able to break through the Orion Psych-Team's defenses. They are able to penetrate into the mind of Admiral Yamamoto and instruct him to turn around.

    Admiral Yamamoto inexplicably turns his fleet around.

    His advisors try to persuade him to continue his attack and move seize the Hawaiian lands. He refuses to do so, no one understands. He is said to be acting confused and very dazed.

    He is also said to have uttered the following...

    "...I am afraid we have awakened a sleeping giant."

    Unknowingly, he has correctly assessed the situation as it existed.

    The lizard Empire had never believed it would be threatened. Its hold had been total and complete, a war of take-over was considered inconceivable. The Empire had, in fact, had been awakened from its slumbers.

    The tragedy of the 'Day of Infamy' persuaded the people of the United States to join the war. They feel betrayed, they eagerly seek revenge. The largest and richest country in the world is mobilized for war.

    The President sanctions the start of two secret weapon projects. The first one with solid results will be chosen for full development and completion.

    The 'Manhattan Project', led by Robert Oppenheimer, was begun in earnest in Las Alamos, New Mexico. Its purpose is to develop a 'super-bomb' for use against the Japanese, the Italians and the Nazis.

    The 'Philadelphia Experiment', led initially by Nicola Tesla, begins to research a 'hyper-dimensional' generator, a device which will permit warships to travel through space and time. The cover story claims that the project seeks to develop 'radar invisibility' for naval ships.

    The Orion Psych-Team is being undermined by Hitler himself. Drugs cloud his Judgment, he has begun to make wrong decisions, believing he is infallible. The Orion Team must make a choice, eliminate Hitler and replace him, or attempt to close down one of the secret weapon projects in the U.S. One of the projects is dangerous, it could cause chaos and destruction that would extend far beyond the limits of the solar system.

    Hitler is too far gone, the attempted take-over is lost because of his drug-use. The Psych-Team must leave, but it is decided to terminate the project which is dangerous.

    The Mafia approaches the United States government, they offer assistance in Sicily and Italy in exchange for Lucky Luciano's release. The bargain is struck, Luciano is given his freedom. The Mafia slows down movement of supplies on the docks in Italy, Mussolini is delayed. Patton's move on Sicily is aided by the Mafia. They provide fuel and tires, attack behind the lines and pass on vital information.

    The United States and the Mafia are allies.

    Reinhard Gehlen, head of SS Intelligence approaches the head of the OSS (Office Secret Services), Allen Dulles. He has established an entire spy network in Russia. If Dulles will offer his Gestapo amnesty, Gehlen and his entire group will work for the Americans against the Russians. Everyone distrusts the Soviet Union, Gehlen's offer is accepted.

    The United States and the Gestapo are allies.

    The OSS launches "Operation Paperclip'. Gestapo agents and scientists are taken out of Germany... via the Vatican!

    The United States and the Vatican are allies. In 1948, the OSS (later to become the CIA), the Mafia, the 'SS' Gestapo and the Vatican are all allies. The Psych-Team can do no more. They depart.

    On April 30, 1945, Hitler commits suicide.

    The take-over attempt is over.

    THE TRI-LATERAL TREATY

    The lizards have retained control of the Empire. Their utilization of the United States military forces and wealth has succeeded. But the take-over attempt by the Orion team had come perilously close to undoing the Empire.

    The seizure of ERIDU by the New Empire lizards had been totally illegal. Full rights of development had been awarded to the Sirian Kings when the solar system was born.

    But ERIDU had been seized from the Sirians by MAR-DUK.

    And the lizards had seized it from MAR-DUK.

    Galactic law stated that the development of any race of peoples could not be interfered with in any way, unless the beings themselves specifically invite other beings to fully participate in their business or evolvement.

    The residents of ERIDU were originally of Sirian blood. The seizure of the solar system by the Orion lizards was an illegal act. Thus, to remain in ERIDU, to have a legal and proper presence in the system required an invitation by the major portion of the populace of Earth.

    Without the appropriate invitation, the Galactic Court could find the lizard Empire illegally present in the solar system and dispatch a Guardian Force to forcibly terminate their presence. If an invitation from the major populace, or its representative, was extended, the lizards could stay. Even the Sirian King would have to relinquish any previous development rights.

    A Treaty inviting the lizards to stay was necessary.

    A new re-programming effort begins. It will be crucial that the numbers of humans 'in-the-know' be reduced to near zero. There must be no traceable evidence of manipulation, tampering or influencing of the human race for the scenario that is planned to succeed.

    The stage is set...it begins.

    On February 20, 1954, President Dwight David Eisenhower was in Palm Springs. He is scheduled to hold a press conference but cancels it at the last minute. His press secretary advises the media that he has a tooth ache and can not appear. In reality, he was whisked away to Muroc Air Force Base (later known as Andrews).

    On the runways of the air base, along with his military advisors and a select few civilians, the President watched as a detail of several extra-terrestrial ships approached. For the next few moments, the saucer-like disks performed a series of maneuvers that both stunned and surprised each of the on-lookers. With a final demonstration of invisibility and 'space-skipping', the ships suddenly came to a halt.

    As the President's contingency continued to watch, from seemingly nowhere, a door opened in the closest disk and an intimidating figure moved forward.
    The grey Being is nearly six feet tall. His head is an oddity, it is very large and possesses two large black eyes that dominate his face. His nose is large, his mouth, ears and chin disproportionately small.

    As he moves forward, he reaches into a small box on his chest. He removes something from the box and with a simple gesture, begins to communicate with the President's party.

    The Being identifies himself as KRLL, an emissary from another planet. KRLL advises the President that his people have been watching Earth for quite some time. Though their race cannot comprehend our animalistic behavior, they are, nonetheless, impressed with human beings.

    KRLL explains to the President that they are impressed, astounded, with the genetic make-up of humans. Humans are hardy and surprisingly adaptable. In addition, they are an extraordinary species capable of living and breathing in an atmosphere composed primarily of nitrogen, a poisonous gas.

    KRLL has been instructed by his people to come to Earth and examine human beings, returning with samples of genetic cellular material. In exchange, he is authorized to offer flying disk technology and disintegration light weaponry to the leadership of Earth. It is their hope to identify and isolate the genetic cellular materials which may help their own race become stronger.

    KRLL continues, explaining that they come from a dying world and hope to integrate both our genetic materials and theirs to create a hybrid race which will allow them to endure.

    The President is horrified. It is inconceivable to him that he could permit human beings to be dissected...for any reason! He immediately refuses the offer.
    The tall alien responds. He assures the President that no harm will come to any human being examined. All individuals selected will undergo electronic 'nerve-disconnect'. They will feel no pain.

    In addition, they will have their memories disconnected, thus preventing any trauma to their psyche. As further precaution, they will be implanted with 'screen memories', a technique which will mask any memories of the incident, creating the illusion that any memory that might resurface is just a dream.

    Individuals selected for examination will be taken only under the most discreet situations, the major populace will not be aware of the abductions. Those who are removed will be returned to the same location they were taken from, they will have no memory of the event, only missing time.

    The President is still unconvinced. Examination of any human being without their approval or knowledge seems to be a violation of their privacy and rights. He again refuses. His military advisers argue in favor of the Treaty. Debate and forced quiet arguments continue. Finally, one General makes a point that decides the issue. If the alien's offer is refused... how would Mankind prevent the abductions from occurring anyway?

    The President can see no alternative.

    He asks for one additional consideration to be part of the agreement: a group of human medical advisors will take part in every examination. They will observe all clinical procedures and will be given unrestricted access to any and all aspects of the abduction process. They will report any violations to both humans and aliens. Any such violations will terminate the Treaty. The alien agrees.

    The pact is known as the Tri-lateral Treaty. It has an unparalleled impact on the affairs of the globe. On behalf of planet Earth, the President of the United States, undeniably the most powerful man in world affairs, has extended an invitation for the lizards, now known as the 'GREYS', to participate in our world's development.

    The lizard Empire is legally present on Earth! None of the principals in world government have memories of earlier arrangements. A handful become part of the hidden SHETI or ISHETU government (the 'shadow government').

    The President requests the formation of an alien supervisory board. Some reports list its name as MJ-12, others assign it a different name. Its task is to monitor all the abductions and report back to the President.

    Two underground bases are planned. The first will be a large facility for United States military to use to develop and become familiar with UFO technology and weaponry. This base is built below a gunnery range north of Las Vegas.

    It is variously called Area 51 and Dreamland. The second base is built utilizing the caverns under the Four Corners area, near a small town called Dulce. it is to be used by aliens for the examination of their human abduction subjects.

    Humans and Greys work hand in hand.

    BLACK OPS

    Money is needed to finance the development of the newly acquired weaponry and UFO technology, the so-called 'Black' projects.

    The 'shadow government' influences the President and those whose minds have been sanitized. They argue that the public must not be told of the alien contact, the panic that would ensue would be disastrous, particularly if they were to find out the aliens were uncontrollable. Funds for the 'Black Ops' must not come from taxation, they must come from undetectable sources...and the amounts needed would be vast in quantity.

    The 'shadow government' has no desire to see the 'Black Ops' succeed, but it has no qualms in making a profit. The 'shadow government' principals suggest turning to an 'ally' of the United States in World War II... the Mafia. Though a minor protest is made by some high officials, the Mafia is once again the partner of Uncle Sam. The mobster lords are quick to suggest an arrangement... in illegal drugs.

    The first phase of the operation concentrates on existing fields of poppy in Turkey. The Mafia will be responsible for bringing the drugs to the waters outside the coastlines of the United States. The CIA will bring the illegal drugs into the country.

    The Mafia finds a young Greek shipping magnate who will bring their contraband in his ships to American seas. This young man becomes a tycoon. He is Aristotle Onassis.

    The CIA utilizes the talents of an Irish bootlegger, a man who has Mafia connections and is experienced in moving 'booty' from small boats at sea to 'friendly' longshoremen on the docks. From there they are transported on trucks to all major cities. This man is Joseph P. Kennedy.

    The drugs begin to flow, huge amounts of money is split up between the Mafia and the CIA. Black Ops is funded, the 'shadow government' holds the reins. Government officials, now connected to the Mafia, can be black-mailed and easily controlled... or eliminated.

    The drug operations are extremely lucrative, but Black Ops needs more money, and the 'shadow government' simply is greedy and wants more money. The 'Golden Triangle ' of the far-east is targeted. The French have recently lost a high cost war. Without their presence, planes can be flown into the fields of Cambodia and Viet Nam, drug smuggling begins.

    The success of the drug trade increases, greater numbers of air flights is too difficult to hide, a cover is needed.

    The Gulf of Tonkin is contrived to provide a reason for war. War demands air flights into the distressed area.

    Drugs from the Far East (Cambodia-Viet Nam) are brought in by Air America, a CIA front. The Viet Nam war is a drug smuggling front. Body bags are packed with drugs, soldiers are hooked so that a market will be exist for the payloads. Viet Nam provides the product and the users.

    Black Ops funding increases, the 'shadow government' is not satisfied, they want more profit. The official government continues to get in deeper and deeper.

    South America is a bounty of drugs. The previous phase which used smugglers is put into use again. The drug lords of Central and South America bring their cargoes to a small oil company in the Gulf of Mexico.

    Oil platforms which had been sending nominal amounts of crude oil in barrels nearly double the number of barrels they send into the U.S. Crude oil occupies only half of the barrels, drugs are stored in the others. The most successful operation centers around a young oil company called Zapata Oil. Its young CEO makes a name for himself. The operation is so successful the young man becomes intimate with the CIA. He is present in Dallas on November 22, 1963. He advises the FBI, previous to the fateful day, of a 'possible problem' in the persona of Lee Harvey Oswald, who may be potential threat to JFK.

    The CIA link becomes so strong that in time he is appointed to the Directorship. The young CEO is named George Bush. (George Bush is actually a second cousin to the Queen of England.)

    'Black Ops' and 'Drug Ops' have become one and the same... the Mafia and the CIA are indistinguishable... the United States Government and the 'Shadow Government' are enmeshed.

    They are the perpetrators of crimes against humanity... we are the victims.

    JFK

    Patriarch Joseph P. Kennedy proposes a deal to the CIA-Mafia powers.

    If they assist in the election of his eldest son to the Office of the Presidency, his son in return will obey the dictates of his father. In effect, the Presidency of the United States will be under the control of the Mafia and CIA... completely.

    The 'shadow government' smiles.

    Joseph Kennedy's eldest son is killed in a 'mysterious' accident. Joseph assures the CIA-Mafia that his other son, John Fitzgerald, will abide by the scenario that Joseph has proposed. John is unaware of his father's 'deal', he is an intelligent young man but has an incessant eye for women. The election is rigged, JFK is the new President John follows his father's will, but the Patriarch falls ill.

    Suddenly John and his younger brother Bobby, find the path before them is open to their own direction. Possessed of consciences, they begin to pursue their own course.

    Aware to some degree of their father's connections, the full scope of the arrangement with the CIA-Mafia was beyond their comprehension. They discover the 'Black Ops' and the drug trafficking... and the CIA-Mafia link. The two feel an overwhelming sense of betrayal, they are part of the system of injustice they have taken a vow to fight against.

    John promises to disband the CIA and the drug trade. A committed Bobby goes after the Mafia. Both groups feel the agreement is broken. The Texas oil consortium has its very foundation threatened. The military itself feels their war effort in the Bay of Pigs has been betrayed.

    The two young men have effectively threatened the most powerful organizations in the world.

        On November 22nd, 1963, at noon in Dallas, Texas, John Fitzgerald Kennedy is assassinated.

        On June 5th, 1968, in Los Angeles, California, while on a Presidential campaign, Robert Kennedy is assassinated.

    The world cried, not because most agreed with them, but because everyone somehow knew... we lost one of our own.

    Between the Devil and the Returning Rock:
    The quickening of issues of governance, security, and interspecies
    exopolitical relations caused by the Anunnaki inter-clan civil conflict and
    the return of NI.BI.RU. to aphelion – Speculations in view of new data

    A. R. BORDON
    Foundation One

    ROY W. GORDON
    Foundation One

          In this essay, we will examine interlocking sets of issues concerning governance, near-Earth security, and interspecies relations generated by the presence of the Anunnaki on Earth and the Kingdom returning to aphelion in the next sixty to one hundred and ten years. The presence of people from another world on Earth presents unique problems and opportunities for us as a biokind (biological kind), the result of a directed panspermia carried out by Those Who From Heaven To Earth Came – in the words of Zecharia Sitchin, a latter days prophet and dispeller of darkness about our biokind’s prehistory. Information generated over the last forty years (e.g., the Department of Energy’s early 1970s conference on communications in the 21st century at Hilton Head, the colloquia at Cornell University organized by Carl Sagan in the early to mid-80s on exocommunication and interspecies relations, the select conferences organized by the aerospace industry on interplanetary travel requirements and exotic propulsion, the formation of the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency (or NGA) late last century and its mission, and the indicia on Anunnaki presence in the United States generated by a field study conducted by the authors over the last five years) make, in our view, for a most compelling need to confront the broad issues we will raise and deal with in this essay.

         The driving assumptions of this essay are two, and quite simple: (1) not everything is as it seems, or as we are told it is; and (2) neither are all assets completely disclosed, nor their real, intended capabilities and uses open to public scrutiny, for their obvious security and counterintelligence value. Also a note on the intent of the authors in writing this essay: It is our opinion and impression from a cursory review of the UFO literature that the focus of study of phenomena ascribed to extraterrestrial biological entities – as life forms and bearers of advanced levels of technology – is scattered across a wide range of subjects. Furthermore, the subject of Anunnaki on Earth – a subject of primary importance to the human race at this juncture in our history – is focused upon Sitchin’s voluminous work.

    The presence of Anunnaki on Earth is treated by thoughtful thinkers, like Neil Freer, in reference to Sitchin and not on the present or the future of what the reality of Anunnaki on Earth portends for us, not just their mythic and Jungian archetypes in our subconscious (Freer [White Paper] undated, 1998, 1994). Perhaps this state of affairs is due to the dearth of information on what to, where to, and who to look for on Earth, and in particular in the United States. Neil’s focus upon our need to grow up and out of our collective godspell is well placed, but in our view does not address what needs to be our central interest about Anunnaki on Earth. Hopefully, doing so will indicate to us all just what we now face and will encounter in the next sixty to one hundred ten years from today. Metaphorically speaking, this should put a face on what, in the literature, is often referred to as the dark side, unethical celestial network,

         Additionally, we have written this essay not as whistleblowers, which we are not, nor intend to stimulate the view we are; quite the contrary, we present our thoughts and the results of our field study here to stimulate discourse on the subject what the presence of the Anunnaki on Earth means to us. It is also evident that there is little or no intelligence on them in the public domain, and we believe this to be a dangerous state of affairs. Without information, whether shreds, indicia, or even uncorroborated reports, we believe that it is indeed difficult to entertain possibilities and formulate scenarios for our collective consideration. Fortunately, there are ways and places to go find information about these people, and from humans who have had access to high level policy formulation about them as well as people who have been the recipients of their request for allegiance and loyalty.

    We have explored these places and managed to meet sources who have spoken to us on the condition of anonymity, in the furtherance of our collective understanding of what we are facing now and will face in the future. It took time – nearly five years of patient search and careful scrutiny of the sources themselves and the information culled from and through them – and a complex validation (vetting information where possible, along with of the sources). We also used the journalistic device of confirmation of information by at least two or more sources. Finally, it was not our intention to conduct a scientific study, but rather a field study that would generate information which could lead us all into new venues, new inquiries, and more search and research pertinent to our collective future safety, security and integrity. We hoped to have accomplished that, and pray that this essay generates the intended discourse on the subject. The final reason is that we found Ed Komarek’s remarks on his blog…

    The way to break the back of the dark, secret, covert cabal … is to expose their very exopolitical foundation!

    …quite on target, although his metaphors a bit simplistic yet very accurate. There are indeed two camps which correspond closely to his ethical celestial beings vs. unethical celestial network, with their corresponding earthly conduits and minions.  But the landscape in which the drama continues to unfold is murkier than what Ed makes it out, or perhaps wishes it, to be. See his http://exopolitics.blogspot.com. Their presence in the dramatic landscape suggested by our eleven informants will also hopefully become evident in this essay.

         Issues

         We will explore scenarios raised by informant reports in two areas – governance and near-Earth security, and draw from available literature and scenarios developed by a team led by the junior author on interspecies relations. From these, we will focus specifically on six sets of issues: governance as institutional response sets to the presence of the Anunnaki on Earth, governance as meaning given to the concept by Earthbound Anunnaki culled from informant sources, near-Earth space security (for whom? why?), defense of Earthbound Anunnaki interests on Earth, the current roles and situations we face in the Anunnaki inter-clan conflict, and the choices we face in view of the alignment of political/economic/religious/military influence and control exerted by Earthbound Anunnaki through third-party minions and their projection of might and technological superiority.

    I.  GOVERNANCE AS INSTITUTIONAL RESPONSE SETS TO THE PRESENCE OF EARTHBOUND AND INCOMING ANUNNAKI

         These are evident from FIOA documents retrieved under the United States Freedom of Information Act concerning UFOs, aliens, extraterrestrials, codified rules (as in Code of Federal Regulations and certain military manuals), the U.S. military sources of public and leaked classified information, and leaks to unvetted , unwitting informants. Another stream has also been manifested as governmental and military sources of public and leaked information in England, NATO, and the European Union. A third stream was manifested as a conjunction of interest compact initiated by the U.S. National Space Council in association with unspecified developed-industrial nations within a United Nations umbrella, again as public and leaked information. And a fourth stream has been the witting informant (both out of government and military services, as well as still in government and military service) willing and able to provide hints, partial disclosures, confirmations, and information pattern reconstruction assistance on a case by case basis. The latter are few and far between, speak by statements in response to specific questions (never face to face, until very recently) and are here further protected as numbered informants.1 Information obtained and culled through these sources are used in this essay to indicate past and current policy directions of interest in examining matters associated with national and planetary governance, safety and sovereignty issues.
         
    Governance as an issue seems to had taken a new shade of meaning in the late 1970s, when in the words of Informant One, “things went kind of haywire, when the people from the incoming [NI.BI.RU.] made contact through unexpected assets requesting a meeting with representatives of the United States” (2003). According to this source and a corroborating one, “the only thing that saved the day was the cool-headed handling of matters related to this contact, and the delegation made by the president to his close friend from Navy days to head the group that met with them up in the tundra” (One 2003; Four 2004). “A semi-formal arrangement was set up for exchanges and contacts directly through the interagency directorate set up by the White House and [an unspecified agency] to handle them and facilitate the settlement and acclimation of one of theirs at one of our [unspecified] installations in [an also unspecified] desert” (One 2003; Two 2002; Four 2004). At the time, we were in the throes of the first Iran situation, “and the people from the incoming filled us in on the actual conflict being played out at that time” (Four 2004).

         Governance then ceased being a matter of mere elections and political parties, and more of a two-track affair of state – one involving politics as usual on the domestic side and a carefully orchestrated foreign policy enriched by the revelations on the nature and genesis of the Iranian about-face (the invisible hands of the Serpent Faction in fomenting the uprising of Sunnis and the subsequent establishment of a theocracy dominated by Serpent Faction minions); the other involving more of a managing of relationships with those who were coming in, mostly through the one whom Informant One referred to as “the ambassador” (2003). The new intelligence available through such contacts “concerning Serpent Faction activities in fomenting division by religious fundamentalism was heard but not heeded – at least not until the next administration” (Two 2002). How much of what had transpired in the ten months prior to the 1980 election was passed on during the transition is unknown, but several informants (One, Two, Four, Five and Six), especially those in the military attached to the interagency directorate, did confirm that “awareness of what was going on was palpable from day one, but how much the old man knew was anybody’s guess.

    Everything was still being handled in compartments and very few of us had access to the latest [intelligence] from them out west [Anunnaki in the desert?]” (Four 2004). “The thing that changed everything was the reports coming in from the Naval Observatory and the project that was handling the [astronomical] observations in South America and Australia. By then we knew that this whole thing was for real, and that there were needs superceding the way we were then organized” (One 2002; Four 2004). But it would apparently take nearly six years for pertinent information to reach the summit of power in the White House – even though the interagency directorate was said to have functioned out of the Executive Office Building and one of the subfloors under the White House. Why this took so long, and by what means did Reagan become aware of things concerning the Anunnaki is unknown, and remains so.

         In 1986, then President Reagan met with then Secretary General Gorbachev in Reykjavik, Iceland, for a mini-summit. In a private session, which is said to have included their respective wives, Nancy and Raisa, the foursome is reported to have received a formal briefing on information culled from astrophysical, technological and historical sources concerning what cannot be anything other than the 10th planet in our solar system, the historical record of anthropological and archeo-astronomical information concerning NI.BI.RU. and its inhabitants, and the “apparent civil conflict between members of an asset group [Nibiruan Anunnaki on Earth] and the [NI.BI.RU.-borne] governing body of the incoming” (One 2002). The occurrence of this briefing was verified to have taken place by six of the eleven sources 2 we cultivated over the years.

    It was also said that reference was made during the briefing to “the handling of understanding with those here concerning matters of mutual interest,” which were discussed by the principals and questions asked of the briefers – ostensibly, “senior military officers in civilian clothes” (One 2002; Two 2003; Five 2004) quite possibly attached to the interagency directorate and/or NSA. Additionally, Reagan and Gorbachev both wished to know how extensive was the institutional awareness of this “threat” on the part of the other major powers and industrialized nations of Earth. The answer was said that awareness was highly restricted to “intelligence sharing of certain compartmented information on a need to know basis” and “only with those who’ve assisted us in term of recoveries [of extraterrestrial artifacts] in the past” (Two 2002; Five 2004).

         Issues of national governance raised by both heads of state concerned “both internal issues of disclosure and preparation” (One 2003; Five 2004), “and issues on how to handle them”. Gorbachev was said to be more concerned with the managing of relations with the asset group and its leadership, while the American president was said to have voiced concerns about the position in which the U.S. was finding itself with respect to the asset group on planet surface and what stance was the proper one to take on this matter. The president was said to have been reminded that the information compartment, though inclusive of major aspects, was also still restricted to the highest level, to those having a [certain specific compartment] clearance, “and to those serving on the [National Space] Council,” and that “all previous contacts and understandings with them [the Earthbound asset group] remain in place” (One 2003; Four 2003; Five 2004). The president was also reported to have asked for recommendations on possible options for the handling of the situation at hand.
         
    It was then said that, as an initial step, Gorbachev recommended the matter be disclosed to the United Nations both privately and publicly “in the strongest possible terms,” but avoiding unnecessary and premature full disclosures. Both heads of state also are said to have requested and received descriptive information on “what these people looked like.” The briefing was said to have been sober and business-like, with the wives remaining quiet and attentive, but with Nancy taking some notes. It was also said they were reminded that the matter would not arise as “a tangible” until the beginning of the second decade of the next century” and that “there was still some time to organize an infrastructure for the handling of contact, intelligence and positioning of assets with the aim of establishing a basis for future diplomacy” (One 2003; Five 2004; Six 2004; Nine 2005).
         
    Interestingly enough, a relatively short time after the briefing, Reagan publicly addressed the United Nations General Assembly and is reported to have held private meetings with a select group of NATO allies and other industrialized nations (Two 2003; Four 2004). Towards the end of his speech to the Forty-second Session on September 21, 1987, the President said that, "in our obsession with antagonisms of the moment, we often forget how much unites all the members of humanity. Perhaps we need some outside, universal threat to make us recognize this common bond. I occasionally think," continued Reagan, "how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world. And yet, I ask" -- here comes the clincher -- "is not an alien force ALREADY among us?" The President now tries to retreat from the last bold statement by posing a second question: "What could be more alien to the universal aspirations of our peoples than war and the threat of war?"
     
         There are indications also that Reagan and Gorbachev had already spoken about aliens during their previous Geneva summit. And there are further indications in the public domain that the president had awareness of the presence of “aliens” on Earth. Earlier during the second term, the astrology flap had caught public attention, and when the next time Reagan mentioned “a threat” from outer space, it was a further attention getter. The media was having a field day with horoscopes at the White House when Reagan talked about the possibility of Earth uniting against a threat by "a power from outer space." Although the idea wasn't new for the President, as we shall soon see, this time everybody paid attention. More as a joke than a serious thought, however.

    The AP story on the speech, for example, had the headline, "Reagan follows astrological flap with comment on space invaders." The President first disclosed his thoughts about "an alien threat" during a 4 December 1985 speech at Fallston High School in Maryland, where he spoke about his first summit with General Secretary Gorbachev in Geneva. According to a White House transcript, Reagan remarked that during his 5-hour private discussions with Gorbachev, he told [Gorbachev] to think… "How easy his task and mine might be in these meetings that we held if suddenly there was a threat to this world from some other species from another planet outside in the universe. We'd forget all the little local differences that we have between our countries ..."

         Except for one headline or two, people didn't pay much attention. Not then and not later, when Gorbachev himself confirmed the conversation in Geneva during an important speech on February 17, 1987, in the Grand Kremlin Palace in Moscow, to the Central Committee of the USSR's Communist Party. Not a High School in Maryland, precisely! There, buried on page 7A of the Soviet Life Supplement, was the following statement:

    "At our meeting in Geneva, the U.S. President said that if the earth faced an invasion by extraterrestrials, the United States and the Soviet Union would join forces to repel such an invasion. I shall not dispute the hypothesis, though I think it's early yet to worry about such an intrusion..."

         It is significant that Gorbachev didn’t consider this to be an incredible proposition; he just said that it's too early to worry about it.

         If Gorbachev elevated the theme from a high school to the Kremlin [Politburo], Reagan upped the ante again by including the "alien threat", not in a domestic speech but to a full session of the General Assembly of the United Nations.  Unlike the off-the-cuff remarks to the Fallston High School, we must assume that the President's speech to the General Assembly was written very carefully and likewise, it merits close consideration. Ronald Reagan has told us that he thinks often about this issue, yet nobody seemed to be paying attention. When the President mentioned on 4 May 1988 in Chicago for the third time the possibility of a threat by "a power from another planet," the media quickly dubbed it the "space invaders" speech, relegating it to a sidebar in the astrology flap. The ET remark was made in the Q&A period following a speech to the National Strategy Forum in Chicago's Palmer House Hotel, where he adopted a more conciliatory tone towards the Soviet Union.

         Significantly, Reagan's remark was made during his response to the question, "What do you consider to be the most important need in international relations?"
         
    "I've often wondered," the President said, "what if all of us in the world discovered that we were threatened by an outer -- a power from outer space, from another planet." And then he emphasized his theme that this would erase all the differences, and that the "citizens of the world" would "come together to fight that particular threat..." There is a fourth, unofficial, similar statement from Ronald Reagan about this particular subject, which was reported in the New Republic by senior editor Fred Barnes. The article described a luncheon in the White House between the President and Eduard Shevardnatze, during the Foreign Minister's visit to Washington to sign the INF Treaty on September 15, 1987. "Near the end of his lunch with Shevardnadze," wrote Barnes, "Reagan wondered aloud what would happen if the world faced an 'alien threat' from outer space. “Don't you think the United States and the Soviet Union would be together?” he asked. Shevardnadze said, “yes, absolutely. And we wouldn't need our defense ministers to meet."  In terms of secrets, there is also an unconfirmed story of a special screening in the White House of the movie ET years ago, with director Steven Spielberg and a few select guests. Right after the movie, Reagan is reported to have turned to Spielberg and to have had a whispered conversation for a few minutes. Then, as they stood up, Reagan said, more audibly, "There are only a handful of people who know the whole truth about this." If true, Reagan knew.

         During the Reykjavik briefing, it is also reported that both heads of state pushed for the formation of a “response network set to handle aerial reconnaissance, surveillance and chase,” over the national skies of participating nations under an integrated command “ostensibly controlled by the American and Soviet higher commands” (Two 2003; Six 2004). But, as other informants reported, “this suggestion, in practice, met with so much resistance that it was ultimately dropped” (One 2004; Five 2004). Thus, at this juncture and on the basis of informant reports, we can discern neither the extent to which the matter developed and materialized, nor which countries led in the effort.

         In the United States, the president is reported to have formally organized diverse American space security assets under a National Geospatial Intelligence Agency (or NGA), which is said to have been charged with providing “warning systems and means of downward and outward surveillance of matters and astronomical objects of interest to the national security” (Five 2004; Six 2004; Eight 2005). This is said to have been accomplished through a secret presidential executive order (One 2002; Four 2004; Five 2004). The primary concerns at the time were reported to be practical and their nature institutional in tone – what needs to be organized as networks of response to the threat on a case by case basis, how to organize participants and assets, how to orchestrate and make use of assets, and disposal of same under an integrated domestic command when events warranted it (One 2002; Two 2002, 2003; Four 2003, 2004; Five 2005; Seven 2005; Nine 2005).

         On the domestic side, lead in event response was said to have been given to NGA, the National Space Council and its contact committee, and to “a kind of space security czar” (Seven 2005; Eight 2005; Nine 2005). All intelligence agencies, both on the civilian and military sides, were said to have been directed to provide support and assets as needed (Two 2003; Four 2003; Five 2004, 2005; Ten 2005). Another, albeit not fully vetted, informant provided information concerning the formation of what was referred to as a “National Security Council-Augmented” group to provide “specific constituencies within the US Government and certain foreign constituencies” with what was described as “voice participation and recommending function” in discussions of issues and problems connected to presidential tasks, event response situations, and crises (Three 2003). We were not able to verify this report with information from other independent informants, but it is included here because it is suggestive of the institutional response set initiated under Reagan, and because it fits the preparatory and crisis handling patterns following the initiation of institutional responses to the perceived threat.

         Two of our informants (Two and Five) also reported that the initial focus on in-situ Anunnaki declared by Reagan had changed during the next administration, only to have it reversed and amplified in the next two. When queried about these changes in focus as possible institutional inconsistencies, the reply was that “these were not so much structurally driven inconsistencies, either from the White House or from the foreign constituencies, but rather they were more like a floating focus driven by events and situations” (Two 2004), “some of [which] were surface [i.e. domestic and foreign political and military] events and situations stemming from administration policies” (One 2004). In other words, “the pucker factor [fear] was much higher during the administration immediately following Reagan than during any of the other two following, including the present one” (Five 2004; Six 2004; Ten 2005).

    The framework within which the remnant Anunnaki situation was conceived and dealt with was, in the words of Informant Five, “as something ongoing and not readily subject to change. It was something that had to be managed, and managed carefully, choosing levels of engagement as carefully as if dealing with a live cobra” (2005). Interesting choice of words, given the moniker chosen by those who are here – Serpent clan. This meant, Informant Five explained further, that “when, for example, those who are here began making moves to meet and begin securing allegiance and loyalty oaths from members of groups like retired military, retired military intelligence and civilian intelligence people, de facto and ad hoc groups pretty much on their own initiative around the turn of the century, meetings with official US government people started taking place as pro-forma, but in some cases obligatory contacts arranged, managed and conducted from the highest levels. But those who would be sent to meet with them were at most deputy level people” (2005).

         We also asked if, and how, governance was conducted following the institutionalization of what we baptized as the “NI.BI.RU. event response”. Was safety and security (personal, public, institutional) ever an issue at any time? With regard to governance, “once the realization set in that things were not imminent, that the arrival [in southern skies] of the incoming would not be until the second decade of this century, governance as an issue was forestalled by putting in place a multitrack program for managing anything from suppression and disinformation to public information and conditioning – all of that through about damn near 800 ST/SCI/SARs. All in the hands of an umbrella project [not the infamous MJ-12] that had superceded the one that had been handling things for the last forty or fifty years” (Five 2005; Nine 2005).

         Governing was more or less a two track affair after Reagan, according to Informants Four and Seven: “after Reagan and the fall of the Soviet Union, things got a little hairy for a while, but they turned less so after No. 41 [Bush senior] left office and the dust settled in Iraq” (Four 2004). “Governing went back to politics as usual, the winning and losing of elections, etc., on one side, and on the other, not visible side, it became a kind of tap dance – managing carefully requirements by both sides [those who are here and those who are coming] “ (Seven 2005).

         Both sides? Was there formal contact with the home planet before Reagan? Was this contact ongoing? “No to the latter; yes to the former, but through a more self-contained and insulated group who pretty much was left to its own devices for keeping the kisam [Earthbound Anunnaki] happy” (Seven 2005). “It was only after the detection of NI.BI.RU. in the late ‘70s that things went into higher gear” (Four 2004). “When the interagency directorate was set up, things moved to the White House and the tap dance began. Now there were two groups to contend with and the [exo]politics at times would get intense” (Seven 2005).

          Was the group that handled things then the same as that which led the umbrella project mentioned earlier? “Yes, with some additions after the other side [those who were on the incoming] requested and got a formal meeting up in the tundra [unspecified whether in Canada or Alaska, or Antarctica], that’s when things started to get a little crazy, sort of like being between the devil and the incoming rock. But all of that happened before Reagan” (Two 2004; Four 2005; Five 2005; Six 2005).

    Who Are These People?  

         Finally, in a recent round of exchanges with several informants, some of them new ones, we asked them the following question. What are we dealing with here? The extant literature mentions humanoids, grays, reptilians and other kinds of life forms. Which of these are the Anunnaki?  And what do they look like? Their answers were quite enlightening.

         “Let’s start out by saying that we are definitely dealing with biological entities, not altogether more complex than us, except that their cellular electrical capacitance is much higher than ours, which makes them an energetic envelope of much higher bioelectric potential than us. When you are in the presence of one of them, you can feel their presence as if you could cut it with a knife. A very definite force of what could best be described as intention emanates from them” (Eight 2005, 2006). “They are very large, very tall biological specimens, no doubt of that. They can also be best described as looking almost like albinos – white, almost milky white skin, with a sort of sweat or beads of water evident on their skin, like a film – about seven or eight feet in height, very white hair – not gray white, but kind of snow white. Like white wool – yes, kinky white hair, some of them wear it shoulder length, others short, almost close cropped. But you can tell it is kinky. Oh, eyes are red, when you catch them inside in low light and they are not wearing dark, almost black contact-like lenses, but different from ours.

    They always travel in pairs, so if you see one of them, the other is not too far away. This is true of the kisam. Haven’t had the chance of meeting the others [those who went to the original late ‘70s meeting, ostensibly coming from the home planet] so I can’t tell you what they’re like. [I] Imagine they look the same. But you can tell more about them from their presence” (Eleven 2006). It is interesting to note that C. L. Turnage, author of a series of provocative books on the connection between the Bible, Planet X and the Anunnaki (Turnage 2000, 1997, 1996) had also described an encounter with one of them, in which she described them in nearly identical terms (Turnage, personal communication to the senior author, 1997).3  And an entirely similar description of the Anunnaki can also be found in Patrick Cooke’s controversial but well thought out arguments on his website, www.bibleufo.com.
         
    An Emerging Picture

         Governance, as opposed to security, appears to not have been a major issue from the ’79 meeting to the present. The emerging picture concerning governance painted by informant words indicates that the USG continued business as usual both vertically – from the executive apex of the presidency, through its federal departments and agencies, to the state governments in the union – and horizontally – the foreign policy apparatus of the USG continued functioning as expected through its State and Defense departments. What did change was the sense of constituent security – that is, USG had to formally contend with the presence of two Anunnaki camps in conflict with one another, and the additional requirement of dealing with both. The meaning of security also appears to have undergone a subtle, yet quite real metamorphosis. We will briefly discuss this transformation below.

         It is evident from the literature (Good 1988, 1993; 1996, 1999; Maccabee 2000; Dolan 2000; Bryant 2002; Marrs 1998; Salla 2006; Corso 1997) that there is considerable belief based on evidence – some of questionable reliability, and some on verifiable validity – that the USG is involved in a massive cover up of anything from the existence of aliens, alien technologies, technology transfers to the private sector and more. While the focus of this essay is only on Anunnaki affairs and their impact on Earth governance, internal security, near Earth space security and Anunnaki inter-clan conflict, informants have also provided some information on contacts with “aliens” from outside the solar system (e.g., the Angleton tapes and the SERPA TS/SCI referred to by Collins and Doty 2005).

    This appears to reflect a reframing of how USG views the Anunnaki vis-à-vis “the real aliens” (Six 2005). Our current hypothesis is that Anunnaki are currently viewed as “ancestors, not really aliens, but more like people who are like us, probably because they were here before the human race appeared on Earth through them” (Six 2005). This makes sense to us, since we were asked more than once to clarify our questions regarding “aliens” from the “incoming”. Is it that at present lead agencies regard this as a “local” event requiring a “local event response set”? It would seem so. This worldview on Anunnaki presence on Earth would also fit in with the seeming working definition of “those who are here and those from the incoming” as a “local problem” (Six 2005; Eight 2005).

         How, then, has the issue of governance been affected by the double Anunnaki presence since the ’79 meeting? One of the seeming results of the formalized infrastructure specific to this situation is the insulation of the White House from the appearance of real access to UFO information. Two examples of this approach are the handling of the Rockefeller initiative during the Clinton administration (i.e., the involvement of assets said to be with CIA at the time and the White House deft use of UFO/alien humor) in deflecting one of the most delicate exopolitical crisis faced by President Clinton; the other is the style and tenor used by the Bush-43 administration: silence.

    The Anunnaki seem to have forced the USG into a space security structure responsive to two exopolitical constituencies. This is reflected “in the way things get handled,” said Informant Eight. “Looks like everything political is handled by the [National Space] Council and the Vice President as chair. This is where the two tracks originate. One umbrella for TS/SCIs handling the incoming, another umbrella for TS/SCI dealing with those here, and the twain shall never meet. NGA looks like it works with both tracks, but it really is controlled by the other czar for space security. This is one of the most secret functions, “cause from what I can tell, this person is the Executive Officer of the whole space security apparatus” (Eight 2005). We asked some of our informants to describe what they knew of the infrastructure of this “space security apparatus.” Figure 1 is a graphic representation of our understanding of the information at this time.

         The picture emerging from Figure 1 is a political/military, strategic/tactical event response infrastructure designed to enable security assets to be quickly available to a designated Space Security Executive Officer (quite probably someone in the Directorate of National Intelligence as a cover). This infrastructure appears to be transnational in nature and organization, which bespeaks of a highly integrated grid that includes assets from not just the United States but also from a host of foreign countries. Its makes sense that this should be so, given comments made by Informants Eight, Ten, and Eleven (2005, 2006). “Notice that during the Clinton years, that movie Independence Day was the source of much joking about aliens. But I’ll tell you right now, what happened in [that movie] will never happen in reality. The grid is tightly woven and completely interactive – from surveillance to intelligence, counterintelligence to asset disposition, military policy to event response sets – everything has its protocol and policies by which it guides itself.” (Eleven 2005). “Think of it as a huge, extended team.

    The whole thing is based on the assumption that there will be an invasion by superior, technologically more advanced forces. That would be the people from the incoming. So everything is geared toward an event response set that will do its best to disallow beachheads and coordination with whatever fifth column assets they may have on the ground. This is why everything but technology appears to be integrated in common” (Eight 2005). “This is also a response infrastructure where no one is elected to office, but rather appointed at the pleasure of the people at the [National Space] Council level. I also have reason to believe there is input in this from the NGA and the compact. But when you look and see who is in position, it’s not just Americans on the ground, though a large majority are Americans. A lot of them come from across the pond and some as far as Moscow” (Ten 2006). And the PRC – the Chinese? “Well, that’s a problem – political one right now, but it could become more than that in the next few years. The key to that may well be Iran, unless the Russians are able to solve the heavy water issue to everyone’s satisfaction, especially ours” (Ten 2006).

    National Geospatial Intelligence Agency
    National Space Council
    United States

    II. EARTHBOUND ANUNNAKI INTERESTS, SPACE SECURITY, AND A ROUGH SKETCH OF THE SITUATION FACED BY THE U.S. GOVERNMENT AND THE USA/TRANSNATIONAL COMPACT IN THE ANUNNAKI INTER-CLAN CONFLICT

         Our anecdotal data indicates that the infrastructure represented in Figure 1 is most likely a blend of response sets, which include the management of Earthbound Anunnaki interests, USA and USA/transnational compact interests, and a definition of space security forced upon the latter by the need to carefully handle two constituencies in conflict with one another. We showed Figure 1 to all informants, except Three and Five. A surprising consensus became manifest as each was able to peruse it and react to what it depicted. “It is accurate to say that it is a grid,” said Informants Six and Seven (2006). “Each function on this graph [Figure 1] has specific concerns,” added Informant Nine (2006). Each of them agreed on the descriptors assigned to the functions represented on the Figure 1 grid, offered in smaller font.

         The grid is most definitely not the infrastructure of a political democratic institution. It appears to be military in tone and tenor, and it is obviously designed to handle crisis situations. Much like the present war economy of the United States, it is deeply rooted in corporate-like response sets to specific, segmented constituencies, to which those beholden to the powers that be must appease, court, kowtow, and fear – yet, they must be protected and held in fearful respect. Protection, in the words of one of our informants, is not just in terms of advance notice of arrivals of advance parties from the home planet; “it also involves the use of people who obey them implicitly, and who are in positions of considerable power by their pleasure and for their benefit. Let me give you a clear example of what we’re talking about. Secret groups in the military and on the intelligence services have mushroomed considerably. If you get to know the deity they serve, you’ll come up with a cluster of names that, when you look back in time, you’ll see an unexpected correlation. You’ll hear the Greek and Egyptian names for these guys, but they are the same ones from ancient Iraq [Mesopotamia]. They are using these groups in the same way they used the artisan and merchant groups back then – as intelligence gathering and dirty-works squads that will terrorize those that rise against them” (Eight 2006; Nine 2005).

    “However,” Informant Eleven warned, “don’t think that they penetrate everybody’s mind with the fear of God. No, not at all. All they have to do is gain control of the lives of people who can get others to do their masters’ bidding, and that’s that! It’s both subtle and also very brutal. Let me give you another example. I was present at [a Fall 2003 meeting in which both sides bid for the allegiance and loyalty of ex-military, ex-intelligence and others still serving in government] and the styles are different as night and day. Both understand that everything is based on conscious consent. The newcomers appealed to our better nature, carefully explaining their position and why they were here, talking to us. The choice was pretty much ours, and the consequences of joining them was also ours. They knew that, and told us so. I’d call them straight shooters. Now, the other ones, those who are here, mimicked the approach of those who were from the home planet, but the feeling tone of their words was cold as hell. You just knew you did not go against their will, against their vector intention. Just being there scared hell out of you! It did me. So what do you do in that situation? Temporize, and then temporize some more. You can lie to them, but your word is your bond, and then they got you.” (2006).

         Eight expanded on the subject. “Though I wasn’t at the session [Informant Nine] is talking about, I can tell you how they operated at [the Army base where this individual had run across an Anunnaki pair assigned to that post]. There was a bunch of special ops guys at [that base] and they were doing something with them. One of [the two Anunnaki] was by the [barrack in front of which the special ops group was assigned]. I was going by and there was this black noncom who the tall one singled out. He asked him what was his wish [for post-training assignment] and the tech sergeant said he wanted to go to medic school. Tall blondie told him his wish was granted, but that later he [the Anunnaki] would keep track of him and ask him to do things for him. I knew the E-8 [sergeant] and I saw his face when the tall dude said that to him. What I saw was naked, raw fear” (2006). “I had a chance to have a beer with him [the E-8] later, and he would not talk about what happened, and told me to forget I ever saw him in the presence of [the tall blond].”

         What Needs To Be Protected And Why

         As Informants Eight, Nine and Ten put it, “when you understand why all of this is in place, you’ll understand what is really going on at the ground level. That means [that] the folks here [Anunnaki on Earth] feel the pinch of proximity. As [Eight] told you before, these guys have a lot invested down here. As near as I can tell, they’ve been here for eons and want to continue at the top of the food chain. There are also harvesting programs they’re invested in, not just us. Think of this as seeds planted long ago that have been coming home to roost. The thing is, when these people want something, they will get it at any level of our constituted government they can. They get their way because we fear them. At least that’s the culture I come from now. This is not to say it’s been different in the past. No. It has not! We’re tools for them, big time.

    There are companies. . . , private companies . . .  set up just to assist them in what they want. Think of them as kinda proprietaries operated by their own people, and I mean tall albino-looking men and women. Their favorites are biotech and aerospace” (Ten 2006). Ten clarified things: “Hold on just a sec! The kisam are not the only ones doing it. So are the Useanesda [loyal lord protectors of the “King’s house” or “The Kingdom” (Nibiru)]. But these people are well aware of what the ones here want and are doing to get what they want. That’s why we’re in the middle, or more precisely, why we’re caught in the middle of things. The perspective at ground level is very different from the ones inside the beltway or anywhere out west. They don’t get to interact and get caught in the middle of their little war, as we are. That’s why it can get tense, if you know what I mean. [Scientists] who won’t go along to get along just. . . , well, disappear” (Ten 2006) “Or get taken out” (Eight 2006). “And then there is all the initiatives on Mars and the Moon” (Eight 2006; Nine 2006; Eleven 2006)
         
    “What’s in it for them?” The question, as Ten posed it, was much more than rhetorical, as it would turn out. “Well, think about it. We’re the hands they use to get their numbers up, their next generation people. This is what has [those coming in] their jockeys up in a bunch. We’re talking about longevities comparable to theirs [people from the incoming] and longer, which is a core issue in their little civil war. Can we use these [technologies] for us? God help us if we did. Now, part of the problem up to now has been that [the project umbrella of SCIs under which relations with those who are here is handled] has been so fragmented that coordination, while fair at the top, we can feel things slipping. There are too many fronts to contend with [i.e., other groups active on Earth’s surface] and resources getting pulled off or diverted to handle [issues and crises with these ‘other groups’]. But that’s not the only thing they’re in for. They’re also in for the control and sitting up at the top of things. We’re their servants, in more ways than one. I don’t care what all the other so called ‘initiatives’ may have produced” [at this juncture, Ten went off on a tangent about the early Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Rockefeller/Kennedy, and Johnson initiatives vis-à-vis Earthbound Anunnaki], “they’re still holding us right where they want us and we are still acting like ninnies. We may be getting things on the quid pro quo set up with them a while back [under Truman and Eisenhower] but, oh, well. So, take your pick, (long pause) but as for me, I think we’re so vested in defending them against all enemies, off-world and domestic, it’s not even funny anymore” (Ten 2006).

         Nine’s perspective seemed broader, but he made up for this by being even more cryptic than on other occasions. “But you don’t understand the stakes,” he started out replying to Ten. “We’re not as supple at [the White House and NGA] levels as you might think. Also, you gotta remember that we were serving a much larger constituency than just the Oval Office. Oh, they played a key role on the political, PR and control side of things. But they were just one more constituency in the way things were set up. Real control’s always been in the hands of the [space security executive officer] and the chairman [of the National Space Council, which is the U.S. Vice President]. So if we’re protecting things ourselves, it’d have to be this. Imagine, not a single one of them was elected by anyone [except for the U.S. Vice President]. As to the kisam, we’re well integrated with them and they with us. What’s always troubled me is that by doing this and being so, we’re on the cross-hair of the Useanesda. Does this mean a war with them? No, there are not indications of that at all. What gets me worried is the sorting out we expect will happen when they get here. The [certain U.S. middle eastern ally] already have good relations with them [
