attitude is one that is the opposite of bravado,
and a selfish, bullying,
approach to life, but rather, has an outlook of doing what's in the highest

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

they have chosen their own ways, etc., so I will choose their delusions.",
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
66:5-14 Hear the word of the LORD
you that tremble.(regard
it not as something trivial).at
that respect the true God); Your brethren that hated you
and 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

glorified. But he.(the
true God).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

66:15,16 For, behold, God 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 God plead with all flesh and
the slain of the God 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,

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.
