“Now I will be on high,” says Yahweh,
“Now I will be lifted up, now I will be lifted up. 11
You have conceived chaff, you will give birth to stubble;
My breath will consume you like a fire. 12
The peoples will be burned to lime,
Like cut thorns which are burned in the fire.
“You who are far away, hear what I have done;
And you who are near, acknowledge My might.” 14
Sinners in Zion are in dread;
Trembling has seized the godless.
“Who among us can sojourn with the consuming fire?
Who among us can sojourn with continual burning?” 15
He who walks righteously and speaks uprightly;
He who rejects greedy gain of oppression,
And shakes his hands so that they hold no bribe;
He who stops his ears from hearing about bloodshed
And shuts his eyes from looking upon evil; 16
He will dwell on the heights,
His refuge will be the strongholds of the cliffs;
His bread will be given him,
His water will be sure.
