And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
For lo! in those days And in that time, When I restore the fortunes Of Judah and Jerusalem,
I will gather all the nations And bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat.There I will contend with them Over My very own people, Israel, Which they scattered among the nations. For they divided My land among themselves
And cast lots over My people; And they bartered a boy for a whore, And sold a girl for wine, which they drank.
What is this you are doing to Me, O Tyre, Sidon, and all the districts of Philistia? Are you requiting Me for something I have done, or are you doing something for My benefit? Quick as a flash, I will pay you back;
for you have taken My gold and My silver, and have carried off My precious treasures to your palaces;
and you have sold the people of Judah and the people of Jerusalem to the Ionians, so that you have removed them far away from their homeland.
Behold, I will rouse them to leave the place you have sold them to, and I will pay you back:
I will deliver your sons and daughters into the hands of the people of Judah, and they will sell them into captivity to a distant nation—for the LORD has spoken.
Proclaim this among the nations: Prepare for battle! Arouse the warriors, Let all the fighters come and draw near!
For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also:
For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.
But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
