He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.

7 – 10 October 2023

He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.

The word, above in Isaiah 53:11, rendered “travail” is ‘amal, meaning “toil, i.e. wearing effort; hence, worry, whether of body or mind.” In Isaiah’s other two uses of it, in context, we understand it is speaking of the work, giving knowledge, that is resisted and opposed by the ignorance and prejudice that are the status quo. It speaks of our time, this generation in a time ruled by unrighteous decree: intentional demoralization that perverts law to punishes the innocent (law abiding) while absolving the lawless (the knowledge of the day that calls good evil and evil good).

Isaiah 10
1 Woe unto them that decree [chaqaq] unrighteous decrees [chaqaq], and that write [kathab] grievousness [‘amal] which they have prescribed [kathab];
2 To turn aside the needy from judgment, and to take away the right from the poor of my people, that widows may be their prey, and that they may rob the fatherless! [When there is no man {able} to protect and defend against these corrupt powers.]
3 And what will you do in the day of visitation [pquddah – when the LORD makes His presence known as the Chief Overseer of the earth, to rescue those without power], and in the desolation which shall come from far [merchaq – in this appointed time the LORD decreed]? to whom will you flee for help? and where will you leave your glory [which is your shame]?
4 Without me they [those that refuse this good prescription] shall bow down under the prisoners, and they shall fall under the slain. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
5 O Assyrian [communists in power], the rod [injustice] of my anger, and the staff [misleading] in their hand is my indignation [za’am].
6 I will send him [as the consequence of their neglect and vacating My good] against a hypocritical nation, and against the people of my wrath will I give him a charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets.

The word rendered “hypocritical,” speaking of this nation and time, is chaneph, also only appearing twice elsewhere in Isaiah, meaning “soiled (i.e. with sin), impious.” It is understood in the sense of previous discussions of the dirt picked up in the journey, which (corruption) needs to be washed from the feet of the travelers.

Isaiah 9
13 For the people turn not unto him that smite them [with the rod and staff of the communists], neither do they seek the LORD of hosts [who is a man of war].
14 Therefore the LORD will cut off from Israel head and tail, branch and rush, in one day.
15 The ancient and honorable, he is the head; and the prophet that teaches lies, he is the tail.
16 For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them [without My knowledge] are destroyed.
17 Therefore the LORD shall have no joy in their young men, neither shall have mercy on their fatherless and widows: for everyone is an hypocrite [chaneph – soiled by the corruption they have been misled into] and an evildoer, and every mouth speaks folly. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
18 For wickedness burns as the fire: it shall devour the briers and thorns [deceivers and misleaders that have overgrown My garden I left in the hand of those charged with protecting and defending it against corruption], and shall kindle in the thickets of the forest [where these misleader congregate], and they shall mount [be remove from their positions of trust] up like the lifting up of smoke.
19 Through the wrath [the warned consequence of rejecting this word] of the LORD of hosts [who is a man of war, the champion of the good fight] is the land [‘erets – the earth is] darkened [become totally ignorant], and the people shall be as the fuel of the fire: no man shall spare his brother.

Isaiah 33
2 O LORD, be gracious unto us; we have waited for you: be you their arm [might – strength] every morning, our salvation [yshuw’ah – Jesus, Jehovah’s Salvation in the flesh] also in the time of trouble [tsarah – this time of tribulation].
3 At the noise [qowl – the voice] of the tumult [hamown – Your multitude] the people fled; at the lifting up of yourself the nations [gowy – those who haven’t known You] were scattered.
4 And your spoil [you recovered from those who spoiled us] shall be gathered like the gathering of the caterpillar [until nothing remains in their hands]: as the running to and fro of locusts shall he [in His multitude] run upon them.
5 The LORD is exalted; for he dwelleth on high: he has filled Zion with judgment and righteousness.
6 And [His] wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability [‘emuwn – meaning “literally firmness; figuratively security; morally fidelity”] of your times, and strength of salvation [yshuw’ah – Jesus, Jehovah’s Salvation in the flesh]: the fear of the LORD is his treasure.
7 Behold, their valiant ones shall cry without: the ambassadors [mal’ak – the messengers: leviathan {the priesthood} of Isaiah 27:1, from who should be heard the highways, who will make peace with Me] of peace shall weep bitterly.
8 The highways [the ancient wisdom and knowledge] lie waste, the wayfaring man ceases: he has broken the covenant, he has despised the cities, he regards no man.
9 The earth mourns [its own desolation] and languishes [‘amal – waxes feeble]: Lebanon [where purity should be seen om high] is ashamed and hewn down: Sharon [what is in plain sight] is like a wilderness; and Bashan and Carmel [what was a fruitful garden] shakes off their fruits.
10 Now will I rise, says the LORD; now will I be exalted; now will I lift up myself.
11 You shall conceive chaff, you shall bring forth stubble: your breath [the evil spirit in you that produces worthlessness], as fire, shall devour you.
12 And the people shall be as the burnings of lime: as thorns [misleaders] cut up shall they be burned in the fire.
13 Hear [shama’ – obey this good leading], you that are far off [rachowq. – you who find yourselves in this time when the world is ruled by evil decree, deadly prescriptions of perverse law meant to demoralize, confuse, and control those obeying them], what I have done; and, you that are near, acknowledge my might.
14 The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness has surprised [‘achaz] the hypocrites [chaneph – those whose minds are blinded by corruption]. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?
15 He that walketh righteously, and speaks uprightly; he that despises the gain of oppressions, that shakes his hands from holding of bribes, that stops his ears from hearing of blood [the words of evil men meant to drain the life of those following their evil prescription], and shuts his eyes from seeing evil [as the way];
16 He shall dwell on high: his place of defense shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.
17 Your eyes [being purified of corruption] shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off [merchaq – this appointed time the LORD decreed].

The word ‘achaz, above in verse 14, rendered “surprise,” means “to seize (often with the accessory idea of holding in possession).” It is the word first used in Genesis 22:13 to tell of the ram “caught” in the thicket by its horns. When the passage says Abraham beheld the ram “behind” him, the word is ‘achar, the origin of the ‘achariyth, both words used speaking these “last days:” the “after” life.

The word rendered ram is ‘ayil, meaning “strength; hence, anything strong; specifically a chief (politically); also a ram (from his strength); a pilaster (as a strong support); an oak or other strong tree.”

Genesis 22
13 And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind [‘achar – in these last days] him a ram [‘ayil – the might men of Moab, the Medes and Persians] caught [‘achaz – surprised] in a thicket [cbak] by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.
14 And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovahjireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen.

The following, ending with Colossians 3, is from the post of 24 May 2023, with today’s additions in double brackets.

Genesis 32
22 And he [Jacob] rose up that night, and took his two wives, and his two women servants, and his eleven sons, and passed over [‘abar] the ford [ma’abar – this Passover] Jabbok [the emptiness].
23 And he took them, and sent them over the brook, and sent over that he had.
24 And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a Man [the LORD – unknown as His people wrestle with His word and work] with him until the breaking of the day [until the light appears: until they understood].
25 And when he saw that he prevailed [this is referring to when Rachel and Leah wrestled with each other and Rachel prevailed in the birth of Naphtali through her maid Bilhah {trouble}, the same women Reuben (Leah’s son) went up to and took His father’s place, for which Rachel’s child {Joseph} was given his birthright] not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob’s thigh [these words speak of his power to procreate] was out of joint [yaqa’ – hanged on a tree: dislocated in the crucifixion of Christ], as he wrestled with him.
26 And he said, Let me go, for the day breaks [and understanding is coming]. And he said, I will not let you go, except you bless me [this is the blessing Jacob spoke of Joseph that would be upon Ephraim {Genesis 48:13 thru 20}, of which Jacob defined further {in Genesis 49:22 thru 26} as he told his children what shall befall them in these last days {‘achariyth} – the last child there spoken of is Benjamin {the son that is at God’s right hand, born in due time after the Passover}, saying he “shall raven [tear in pieces] as a wolf: in the morning {when understanding has come and He is born again} he shall devour the prey, and at night {in this time when darkness covers the earth} he shall divide the spoil.”] .
27 And he said unto him, What is your name? And he said, Jacob.
28 And he said, Your name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince have you power with God and with men, and have prevailed [to Passover Jabbok].
29 And Jacob asked him, and said, Tell me, I pray you, your name [this man with a name that no man knows, the son only the Father knows and those to whom He will reveal him, is the same John speaks of in Revelation 19, whose name is written on his vesture and thigh]. And he said, Wherefore is it that you do ask after my name? And he blessed him there [saying He will bless the seed of Joseph with this deep understanding when he is thereby crowned with The LORD’s glory] .
30 And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel [the face, paniym, presence of ‘el: God]: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.
31 And as he passed over Penuel [by the presence of God with us] the sun [understanding of this new day] rose upon him, and he halted [tsala’ – only used three other times describing whom it speaks of, meaning they wander off course] upon his thigh [when their power was lost through the internal bickering that separated the family].
32 Therefore the children of Israel eat not of the sinew which shrank [these words refer to Gad {giyd – sinew} that forgot {the LORD} – neshah {shrank} from nashah, describing the troop that is {in forgetfulness} overcome but shall overcome at the last {‘aqeb}, after Dan has bitten at the horse heels {aqeb}, and the rider has fallen backward {‘achowr}], which is upon the hollow of the thigh, unto this day: because he touched the hollow of Jacob’s thigh in the sinew that shrank.

Genesis 33
1 And Jacob lifted up his eyes, and looked, and, behold, Esau came, and with him four hundred men. And he divided the children unto Leah, and unto Rachel, and unto the two handmaids.
2 And he put the handmaids [the bondwomen] and their children foremost [ri’shown – the former house], and Leah and her children after [‘acharown – in these last days, the sleeping dead], and Rachel and Joseph hindermost [‘acharown – the living].
3 And he passed over before [paniym – God’s presence with] them, and bowed himself to the ground seven times, until he came near to his brother.
4 And Esau [brethren who before were our enemies, are now by the same grace of God changed] ran to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his neck, and kissed him: and they wept.
5 And he lifted up his eyes, and saw the women and the children; and said, Who are those with you? And he said, The children which God has graciously given your servant [I and the children the LORD has given, are for signs of the end reached].
6 Then the handmaidens came near, they and their children, and they bowed themselves.
7 And Leah also with her children came near, and bowed themselves: and after [‘achar] came Joseph near and Rachel [journeying to Raeford, where she has ford the brook], and they bowed themselves.

This pattern sent for our realization: the change in Esau, is like the change in Saul, when it is said he will become a different man (called Benjamin), those born again after our passing over Jabbok.

In 1 Samuel 9 & 10, this pattern is seen when Samuel (hearing God – Shmuw’el) speaks what He heard, to Saul, who, when he hears (it is God’s voice) and speaks, is with Samuel called a Prophet.

1 Samuel 9
9 (Beforetime in Israel, when a man went to enquire of God, thus he spake, Come, and let us go to the seer [ra’ah]: for he that is now called a Prophet was beforetime called a Seer [ra’ah].)

Saul goes to Samuel because he is said to be looking for his father’s asses that were lost. It is his father (Kish – from the once-used, in Isaiah 29:21, word qowsh, meaning to set a trap) who, for this purpose (setting the trap, to find the asses, in a time when all sight is gone, and in the darkness people can’t even find their own asses) sent him on this search.

Isaiah 29
1 Woe to Ariel [the Lion of God – the strength {understanding} of God, here taken and controlled by the wicked], to Ariel, the city where David [the lion of Judah] dwelt! add you year to year; let them kill sacrifices.
2 Yet I will distress Ariel, and there shall be heaviness and sorrow: and it shall be unto me as Ariel [it will again be My strength].
3 And I [as a man of war] will camp against you round about, and will lay siege against you with a mount, and I will raise forts against you.
4 And you shall be brought down, and shall speak out of the ground, and your speech shall be low out of the dust [as the voice of the serpent from the ruin of the earth], and your voice shall be, as of one that has a familiar spirit [of the known dead speaking words of death], out of the ground, and your speech shall whisper out of the dust.
5 Moreover the multitude of your strangers shall be like small dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones shall be as chaff that passes away: yea, it shall be at an instant suddenly.
6 You shall be visited [paqad – as the Chief Overseer of the Earth] of the LORD of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.
7 And the multitude of all the nations that fight against Ariel, even all that fight against her and her munition [matsowd – her munitions are the net with which they catch those who are without the root, foundation, of righteousness], and that distress her, shall be as a dream of a night vision.
8 It shall even be as when a hungry man dreams, and, behold, he eats; but he awakes, and his soul is empty: or as when a thirsty man dreams, and, behold, he drinks; but he awakens, and, behold, he is faint, and his soul has appetite: so shall the multitude of all the nations be, that fight against mount Zion [when they awaken and realize their own mind’s delusions deceived them and they have been emptied of all understanding].
9 Stay yourselves, and wonder [not knowing what you are experiencing]; cry you out, and cry: they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink.
10 For the LORD has poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep [with no signs of life], and has closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers [ra’ah – those who see as God sees] has he covered [kacah].
11 And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book [cepher] that is sealed [chatham], which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray you: and he says, I cannot; for it is sealed [chatham]:
12 And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray you: and he says, I am not learned.
13 Wherefore the LORD said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honor me, but have removed their heart [the foundations of their mind – their stiocheion is corrupt] far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvelous [eye opening] work among this people, even a marvelous work and a wonder [pele’ – at which all have wondered]: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.
15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their [wicked] counsel [‘etsah] from the LORD, and their works are in the dark [their own ignorance of reality and truth they can’t understand because it is as a foreign language], and they say, Who sees us? and who knows us?
16 Surely your turning of things upside down [the overthrow] shall be esteemed as the potter’s [yatsar] clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed [yatser] say of him that framed [yatsar] it, He had no understanding?
17 Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon [purity seen in high places] shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest?
18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words [this word] of the book [cepher], and the eyes of the blind shall see [again] out of obscurity, and out of darkness [by coming out of ignorance].
19 The meek also shall increase their joy in the LORD, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.
20 For the terrible one is brought to naught, and the scorner is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off:
21 That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproves in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of naught.
22 Therefore thus says the LORD, who redeemed [padah] Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob, Jacob shall not now be ashamed, neither shall his face now wax pale [but they will reach the end promised].
23 But when he sees his children [who have been born again out of death and hell], the work of my hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name [declare My identity Holy], and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel.
24 They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.

Hosea 13
14 I will ransom [padah] them from the power of the grave [sh’owl, Sheol]; I will redeem them from death: O death, I will be your plagues; O grave [Sheol – hell], I will be your destruction: repentance shall be hid from my eyes [nocham cathar ‘ayin – this comfort, restoring things and matter concealed shall come as this fountain of living waters].

In Genesis 22:4 we are told of Abraham, on the third (resurrection) day, seeing (ra’ah) the place “far off,” using the word rachowq, meaning “remote, literally or figuratively, of place or time; specifically, precious.” The statement comes while describing the LORD as Jehovah-jireh (Jehovah sees – everything) to Abraham, after he sees as the LORD does and obeys His voice.

Genesis 22
15 And the angel of the LORD called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time,
16 And said, By myself have I sworn, says the LORD, for because you have done this thing, and have not withheld your son, your only son:
17 That in blessing I will bless you, and in multiplying I will multiply your seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and your seed shall possess the gate [of hell] of his enemies;
18 And in your seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because you have obeyed my voice.
19 So Abraham returned unto his young men, and they rose up and went together to Beersheba; and Abraham dwelt at Beersheba [the well of seven oaths – the promises flowing from the Father].

The word rendered “possess” in verse 17 above is yarash, meaning “to occupy (by driving out previous tenants, and possessing in their place); by implication, to seize, to rob, to inherit; also to expel, to impoverish, to ruin.” It’s used to describe the seducers who possess and control the goodman’s house and of our (I and the children God has given me) inheriting it with the land (America) and earth.

Hebrews 11
8 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, OBEYED; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.
9 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:
10 For he looked for a city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
11 Through faith also Sarah herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.
12 Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.
13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.

39 And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise:
40 God having provided some better thing for us, that [by our obedience] they without us should not be made perfect [all of us together, resurrected in ONE BODY in the Father’s presence].

1 Samuel 9
26 And they arose early: and it came to pass about the spring of the day, that Samuel called Saul [the one desired] to the top of the house [away from the trouble within], saying, Up, that I may send you away. And Saul arose, and they went out both of them, he and Samuel, abroad [chuwts – outside the corrupt houses].
27 And as they were going down [into the depths of hell] to the end [of the earth] of the city [named Sheol], Samuel said to Saul, Bid the servant [your children] pass on [‘abar – Passover] before [into the presence of God with] us, (and he passed on [‘abar – passed over Jabbok first]), but [there] stand you still a while [yowm – in this appointed day], that I may show you [shama’ – to obey] the word of God.

1 Samuel 10
1 Then Samuel took a vial of oil, and poured it upon his head, and kissed him, and said, Is it not because the LORD has anointed you to be captain [nagiyd – commander of His army] over his inheritance?
2 When you are departed from me to [that] day, then you shall find two men [Judah and Ephraim] by Rachel’s [journeyer’s – the pilgrims spoken of in Hebrews 11:13, who are seeking this city where we’ve arrived] sepulcher [place of burial] in the border of [the limit, where is born again] Benjamin at Zelzah [tseltsach – when the darkness is clearly understood]; and they will say unto you, The asses which you went to seek are found [when you, the lost, are again able to find your own asses in the darkness]: and, lo, your father has left the care of the asses [[Israel and Judah]], and sorrows for you, saying, What shall I do for my son [make him {the prodigal} a feast]?
3 Then shall you go on forward from thence, and you shall come to the plain of Tabor [you shall clearly see the mountain of God], and there shall meet you three men going up [rising] to God to Bethel [into the house, Family, of God], [for the feast celebrating the men found] one carrying three kids, and another carrying three loaves of bread, and another carrying a bottle of wine:
4 And they will salute you, and give you two loaves of bread [giving this word of God they have received]; which you shall receive of their hands.
5 After that you shall come to the hill of God, where is the garrison of the Philistines [the stronghold of the invading army]: and it shall come to pass, when you are come thither to the city [whose builder and maker is God], that you shall meet a company of prophets coming down from the high place [the mountain (hill) of God] with a psaltery, and a tabret, and a pipe, and a harp, before [paniym – playing the songs the LORD has given] them; and they shall prophesy [repeating His word as received]:
6 And the Spirit of the LORD will come upon you, and you shall prophesy with them [all repeating this word as received], and shall be turned into another [‘acher] man [becoming a new creation, ONE BODY in the LORD’s presence].
7 And let it be, when these signs are come unto you, that you do [‘asha – make, manifest God with you] as occasion serve you; for God is with you.

Acts 13
6 And when they had gone through the isle unto Paphos [now when the waters are boiling hot], they found a certain sorcerer [a self-described so-called wise man], a false prophet, a Jew, whose name was Barjesus [son of Jesus]:
7 Which was with the deputy of the country, Sergius [wondering] Paulus [about this little man Paul], a prudent man; who called for Barnabas [son of rest] and Saul [desired], and desired to hear the word of God.
8 But Elymas [wizard – a self-proclaimed “expert”] the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith.
9 Then Saul [from whom he desired to hear the word of God], (who also [after his change] is called Paul [a little man, in obscurity, by whose wisdom the city is delivered]) filled with the Holy Ghost [the LORD unknown in him speaking and working], set his eyes on him.
10 And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, you child of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease to pervert the right ways of the LORD?
11 And now, behold, the hand of the LORD is upon you, and you [false prophets and antichrists] shall be blind, not seeing the sun for a season. And immediately there fell on him a mist and [his word appeared as] a darkness; and he went about seeking some to lead him by the hand.
12 Then the deputy, when he saw what was done, believed, being astonished at the doctrine of the LORD.

38 Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins:
39 And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which you could not be justified by the law of Moses.
40 Beware therefore, lest that come upon you, which is spoken of in the prophets;
41 Behold, you despisers, and wonder, and perish: for I work a work in your days, a work which you shall in no wise believe, though a man declares it unto you.

Acts 17
23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, To The Unknown God. Whom therefore you ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.
24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is LORD of heaven and earth, dwells not in temples made with hands;
25 Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he gives to all life, and breath, and all things;
26 And has made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
27 That they should seek the LORD, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.
30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commands all men every where to repent:
31 Because he has appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he has ordained; whereof he has given assurance unto all men, in that he has raised him from the dead.
32 And when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked: and others said, We will hear you again of this matter.

Psalms 40
A Psalm of David
1 I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
2 He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
3 And he has put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.
4 Blessed is that man that makes the LORD his trust, and respects not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
5 Many, O LORD my God, are your wonderful works which you have done, and your thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto you: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.
6 Sacrifice and offering you did not desire; my ears have you opened: burnt offering and sin offering have you not required.
7 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,
8 I delight to do your will, O my God: yea, your law is within my heart.
9 I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, you know.
10 I have not hid your righteousness within my heart; I have declared your faithfulness and your salvation: I have not concealed your lovingkindness and your truth from the great congregation.
11 Withhold not you your tender mercies from me, O LORD: let your lovingkindness and your truth continually preserve me.
12 For innumerable evils have compassed me about: my iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of my head: therefore my heart fails me.
13 Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to help me.
14 Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish me evil.
15 Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto me, Aha, aha.
16 Let all those that seek you rejoice and be glad in you: let such as love your salvation say continually, The LORD be magnified.
17 But I am poor and needy; yet the LORD thinketh upon me: you are my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God.

Friends, men will and do mock us for confessing the LORD’s presence with us and through us working and speaking. But, as we know, the shame shall be theirs when He appears.

Colossians 3
1 If you then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sits on the right hand of God.
2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
3 For you are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall you also appear with him in glory.

The three words, ‘achaz, ‘achar, and ‘ayil, appear in Exodus 15 where they speak of the mighty upon which the surprise comes, when they find themselves as the rams caught in the thicket.

Exodus 15
1 Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spoke, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he has triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider has he thrown into the sea.
2 The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him a habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him.
3 The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.
4 Pharaoh’s chariots and his host has he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea.
5 The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone.
6 Your right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: your right hand, O LORD, has dashed in pieces the enemy.
7 And in the greatness of your excellency you have overthrown them that rose up against you: you sent forth your wrath, which consumed them as stubble.
8 And with the blast of your nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as a heap, and the depths were congealed in the heart [the mind] of the sea.
9 The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.
10 You did blow with your wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters.
11 Who is like unto you, O LORD, among the gods? who is like you, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?
12 You stretched out your right hand, the earth swallowed them.
13 You in your mercy have led forth the people which you have redeemed: you have guided them in your strength unto your holy habitation.
14 The people shall hear [shama’], and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold [‘achaz] on the inhabitants of Palestina [the Palestine, the Philistines, the army of invaders].
15 Then the dukes of Edom shall be amazed; the mighty men [‘ayil – the ram] of Moab [those whose mouths are the gates holding the world in death and hell], trembling shall take hold [‘achaz] upon them; all the inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away.
16 Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of your arm they shall be as still as a stone; till your people pass over, O LORD, till the people pass over, which you have purchased.
17 You shall bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of your inheritance, in the place, O LORD, which you have made for you to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, O LORD, which your hands have established.
18 The LORD shall reign for ever and ever.
19 For the horse of Pharaoh went in with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, and the LORD brought again the waters of the sea upon them; but the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea.
20 And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances.
21 And Miriam answered them, Sing you to the LORD, for he has triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider has he thrown into the sea.
22 So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur [the “wall” of lies]; and they went three days [waiting for the resurrection] in the wilderness, and found no water [no word of God].
23 And when they came to Marah [bitterness], they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter [mar]: therefore the name of it was called Marah.
24 And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink?
25 And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD showed him [yara’ – taught him of] a tree [of life], which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet [mathaq – a five times used word that speaks of counsel, here referring to the LORD’s refused until this time when the tree of life is cast into the sea, to the people at large who, in bitterness, wait for this moment]: there he made for them a statute [choq] and an ordinance, and there he proved them,
26 And said, If you will diligently hearken [shama’ – obey] to the voice of the LORD your God, and will do that which is right in his sight, and will give ear [‘azan – pay close attention] to his commandments, and keep all his statutes [choq], I will put none of these diseases upon you, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that heals [rapha’] you.
27 And they came to Elim [‘ayil – the place of the ram, overcoming those whose mouth, their evil counsel opposing and resisting the LORD’s anointed, are the gate of hell that must be Exodused], where were twelve wells of water [governmental perfection], and threescore and ten palm trees [the resurrection that comes with ending the causes of the desolation, ending the abominations put in God’s place, the evil counsel that replaces His good]: and they encamped there by the waters.

In the title verse, Isaiah 53:11, the “travail” with which the LORD is satisfied (says it’s enough), the “grievousness” prescribed by the wicked, the ‘amal, is the “sorrow” of Psalms 55:10.

Proverbs 5
1 My son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow [subordinate] your ear [what you have before heard] to my understanding:
2 That you mayest regard discretion, and that your lips may keep knowledge.
3 For the lips of a strange woman [the words heard from the unfaithful] drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:
4 But her end [‘achariyth – in these last days] is bitter [mar] as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword.
5 Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.
6 Lest you shouldest ponder the path of life, her [the unfaithful who’ve left the LORD and gone into darkness] ways are moveable, that you can not know them.
7 Hear [shama’ – obey] me now therefore, O you children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.

Psalms 55
1 Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not yourself from my supplication.
2 Attend unto me, and hear me: I mourn in my complaint, and make a noise;
3 Because of the voice of the enemy, because of the oppression of the wicked: for they cast iniquity upon me, and in wrath they hate me.
4 My heart is sore pained within me: and the terrors of death are fallen upon me.
5 Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror has overwhelmed me.
6 And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove [and knew the signs of the end]! for then would I fly away [in full understanding: in heaven], and be at rest.
7 Lo, then would I [did blindly] wander far off [rachaq – into this time when the earth is ruled by evil decree], and remain in the wilderness [desolation]. Selah.
8 I would hasten my escape [exodus] from the windy storm and tempest.
9 Destroy, O LORD, and divide their tongues [which are the gates of hell]: for I have seen violence and strife in the city.
10 Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof [the lies in which the trust]: mischief also and sorrow [‘amal] are in the midst of it.
11 Wickedness is in the midst thereof: deceit and guile depart not from her streets.
12 For it was not an enemy that reproached me; then I could have borne it: neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him:
13 But it was you, a man my equal, my guide, and my acquaintance.
14 We took sweet [mathaq] counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company.
15 Let death seize upon them, and let them go down quick into hell: for wickedness is in their dwellings, and among them.
16 As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me.
17 Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.
18 He has delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were many with me.
19 God shall hear, and afflict them, even he that abides of old. Selah. Because they have no changes [chaliyphah], therefore they fear not God.
20 He has put forth his hands against such as be at peace with him: he has broken his covenant.
21 The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords.
22 Cast your burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain you: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
23 But you, O God, shall bring them down into the pit of destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in you.
