Ezra 10:3; Isaiah 66:2; Isaiah 66:5

Therefore olet us make a covenant with our God to put away all these wives and ptheir children, according to the counsel of my lord1 and of qthose who tremble at the commandment of our God, and let it be done raccording to the Law.


cAll these things my hand has made,

and so all these things came to be,

declares the Lord.

dBut this is the one to whom I will look:

he who is humble and contrite in spirit

and trembles at my word.


Hear the word of the Lord,

you who tremble at his word:

Your brothers who hate you

and cast you out for my name's sake

have said, lLet the Lord be glorified,

that we may see your joy;

but it is they who shall be put to shame.
