66:1 Thus says the LORD, The heaven is my throne and the earth
is my footstool. Where
is the house that you build unto me? And where
is the place of my rest?
Isaiah 66:2 For all those
things has my hand made and all those things which have been, says the
LORD, but to this individual will I look; whoever is poor and of a contrite
spirit and trembles at my word.
66:2 For all those things has my hand made including
all those things which have been.(have
been made by me and they carry on), says the
LORD, but to this individual will I look.(what
does this mean? 'to this individual will I look' if not being
available in us); whoever is poor.('poor',
that is, not filled with ego and full
of himself, but one having humility.(Matthew
11:29), one seeing a spiritual need in his or her life; not vanity

with selfishness, greed and approaches to gain favor, but one who serves
others out of the love he or she feels because he or she overstands

to, but rather a great respect

66:3 He that kills an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth
a lamb, as if he cut off a dog's neck; he that offers an oblation, as if
he offered swine's blood; he that burns incense as if he blessed an idol.
Yea, they have chosen their own ways and their soul delights in their abominations.
A contrite attitude is one
that is the opposite of bravado,
and a selfish, self-seeking
approach to live, but rather, has an outlook of doing what's in the highest
and best interests of others, as shown by a willingness to help and be
of service to and a wanting for others to raise up in life as high as possible.

66:4 I also will choose their delusions.(original
for word 'delusions' is 'caprice';
although we bring things upon us by how we act, it's the true and only
God of creation that selects the
degree of retribution).and will
bring their fears upon them.(Eclectic

that is, they are blinded, don't
know where they are going and don't know what life is all about, because
they have left God out of their lives:.Leviticus
26:36,37; Jeremiah 6:15-17;
because when I called none did answer, when I spake, they did not hear,
but they did evil before mine eyes and chose that in which I delighted

his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name's
sake.(get away from
me, we want nothing to do with your God), said, Let the LORD.(all
capital letters refers to their LORD, their god, which is Satan and his
ways).be glorified. But he shall
appear to your joy and they shall be ashamed. A voice of noise from the
city, a voice from the temple, a voice of the Lord that renders recompence
to his enemies. Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain
came she was delivered of a man child. Who hath heard such a thing? Who
hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day?
Or shall a nation be born at once? fFor as soon as Zion travailed she brought
forth her children. Shall I bring to the birth and not cause to bring forth,
says the Lord? Shall I cause to bring forth and shut the womb, says your
God? Rejoice you with Jerusalem and be glad with her all you that love
her. Rejoice for joy with her, all you that mourn for her; that you may
suck and be satisfied with the breasts of her consolations, that you may
milk out and be delighted with the abundance of her glory. For thus says
the LORD, Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river and the glory
of the Gentiles like a flowing stream, then shall you suck, you shall be
borne upon her sides and be dandled
upon her knees. As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you,
and you shall be comforted in Jerusalem. And when ye see this, your heart
shall rejoice and your bones shall flourish like an herb. And the hand
of the Lord shall be known toward his servants and his indignation toward
66:15,16 For, behold, the LORD will come with fire and with his chariots
like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames
of fire. For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh;
and the slain of the LORD shall be many.
66:17 They that sanctify themselves and purify themselves in the gardens
behind one tree in the midst, eating swine's flesh and the abomination
and the mouse, shall be consumed together, says the LORD.
66:18 For I know their works and their thoughts. It shall come that
I will gather all nations and tongues and they shall come and see my glory.
66:19-21 And I will set a sign among them and I will send those that
escape of them unto the nations to Tarshish, Pul and Lud; that draw the
bow, to Tubal, Javan and to the isles afar
off, that have not heard my fame neither have seen my glory. And they shall
declare my glory among the Gentiles. And they shall bring all your brethren
for an offering unto the Lord
out of all nations upon horses and in chariots and in litters and upon
mules and upon swift beasts, to my holy mountain Jerusalem says the Lord,
as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the
house of the Lord. And I will also take of them for priests and for Levites,
says the Lord.
66:22 For as the new heavens and the new earth.(2Peter
3:13), which I am doing, shall remain before me, says the Lord,
so shall your seed and your name remain.
66:23 And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another
and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before
me, says the Lord..(?)
66:24 And they shall go forth and look upon the carcases of the men
that have transgressed against me, for their worm shall not die neither
shall their fire be quenched and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.
