Ode to Solomon Chapter 38

A BEAUTIFUL DESCRIPTION OF THE POWER OF TRUTH

I went up to the Light (of Truth) as if into a chariot: and the Truth took me and led me:

And carried me across pits and gulleys;

And from the rocks and the waves it preserved me:

And it became to me a haven of Salvation: and set me on the arms of immoral life:

And it went with me and made me rest, and suffered me not to wander, because it was the Truth;

And I ran no risk, because I walked with Him;

And I did not make an error in anything because I obeyed the Truth.

For Error flees away from it, (the Truth) and meets it not: but the Truth proceeds in the right path,

And whatever I did not know, it made clear to me, all the poisons of error, and the plagues of death which they think to be sweetness:

And I saw the destroyer (of destruction) when the bride who is corrupted is adorned: and the bridegroom who corrupts and is corrupted;

And I asked the Truth “who are these ? ” and He said to me, this is the deceiver and the error:

And they are alike in the beloved and in his bride: and they lead astray and corrupt the whole world:

And they invite many to the banquet,

And they give them to drink of the wine of their intoxication, and remove their wisdom and knowledge, and so they make them without intelligence;

And then they leave them; and then these go about like madmen corrupting: seeing that they are without heart, nor do they seek for it!

And I was made wise, so as not to fall into the hands of the deceiver; and I congratulated myself because the Truth went with me;

And my foundations were laid on the hand of the Lord: because He established me.

For He set the root and watered it and fixed it and blessed it; and its fruits are forever.

It struck deep and sprung up and spread out and was full and enlarged;

And the Lord alone was Glorified in His planting and in His husbandry: by His care and by the blessing of His lips,

By the beautiful planting of His right hand: and by the discovery of His planting, and by the thought of His mind.

Hallelujah!

Restoration of Jacob

Therefore all of them that devour you shall be devoured; and all your adversaries, every one of them, shall go into captivity; and they that spoil you, shall be a spoil.  And all they that prey upon you, I will give for prey.

For I will restore health unto you, and I will heal you of your wounds, says the LORD; because they called you an outcast, saying, this is Zion, whom no man seeketh after.

(Jeremiah 30:16-17)

Their children also shall be as they were of old and their congregation shall be established before me, and I will punish all that oppress them.

And their nobles shall be of themselves, and their governor shall proceed from the midst of them; and I will cause him to draw near, and he shall approach unto ME: for who us this that engaged his heart to approach unto Me? says the LORD.

And you shall be MY people and I will be your GOD. Behold, the whirlwind of the LORD goes forth with Fury, a continuing whirlwind: it shall fall with pain upon the head of the wicked.

The fierce anger of the LORD shall not return, until HE  have done it, and until He have performed the intents of HIS heart: in the latter days you shall consider it. 

(Jeremiah 30:20-24)

You are the children of the prophets, and the covenant which GOD made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, in your seed shall all the kindred of the earth shall be blessed. Unto you first, GOD has raised up HIS SON, sent HIM to bless you, in turning away very one of you from his iniquities.

(Acts 3:24-25)
