He said about Levi: Your Thummim and Urim belong to Your faithful one; You tested him at Massah and contended with him at the waters of Meribah.
He said about his father and mother, "I do not regard them." He disregarded his brothers and didn't acknowledge his sons, for they kept Your word and maintained Your covenant.
They will teach Your ordinances to Jacob and Your instruction to Israel; they will set incense before You and whole burnt offerings on Your altar.
LORD, bless his possessions, and accept the work of his hands. Smash the loins of his adversaries and enemies, so that they cannot rise again.
Now therefore: Arise, LORD God, [come] to Your resting place, You and the ark [that shows] Your strength. May Your priests, LORD God, be clothed with salvation, and may Your godly people rejoice in goodness.
For the Israelites and the Levites are to bring the contributions of grain, new wine, and oil to the storerooms where the articles of the sanctuary are kept and where the priests, gatekeepers, and singers serve. We will not neglect the house of our God.
May Your priests be clothed with righteousness, and may Your godly people shout for joy.
I will clothe its priests with salvation, and its godly people will shout for joy.
But you will be called the LORD's priests; they will speak of you as ministers of our God; you will eat the wealth of the nations, and you will boast in their riches.
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for His possession, so that you may proclaim the praises of the One who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.
You made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they will reign on the earth.
for I satisfy the thirsty person and feed all those who are weak."
This city will bear on My behalf a name of joy, praise, and glory before all the nations of the earth, who will hear of all the good I will do for them. They will tremble with awe because of all the good and all the peace I will bring about for them.
But I will see Your face in righteousness; when I awake, I will be satisfied with Your presence.
They are filled from the abundance of Your house; You let them drink from Your refreshing stream,
You satisfy me as with rich food; my mouth will praise You with joyful lips.
How happy is the one You choose and bring near to live in Your courts! We will be satisfied with the goodness of Your house, the holiness of Your temple.
For He has satisfied the thirsty and filled the hungry with good things.
I have come to my garden-- my sister, my bride. I gather my myrrh with my spices. I eat my honeycomb with my honey. I drink my wine with my milk. Eat, friends! Drink, be intoxicated with love!
The LORD of Hosts will prepare a feast for all the peoples on this mountain-- a feast of aged wine, choice meat, finely aged wine.
"Come, everyone who is thirsty, come to the waters; and you without money, come, buy, and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost!
Why do you spend money on what is not food, and your wages on what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, and you will enjoy the choicest of foods.
Pay attention and come to Me; listen, so that you will live. I will make an everlasting covenant with you, the promises assured to David.
Be glad for Jerusalem and rejoice over her, all who love her. Rejoice greatly with her, all who mourn over her--
so that you may nurse and be satisfied from her comforting breast and drink deeply and delight yourselves from her glorious breasts.
For this is what the LORD says: I will make peace flow to her like a river, and the wealth of nations like a flood; you will nurse and be carried on [her] hip, and bounced on [her] lap.
As a mother comforts her son, so I will comfort you, and you will be comforted in Jerusalem.
You will see, you will rejoice, and you will flourish like grass; then the LORD's power will be revealed to His servants, but He will show His wrath against His enemies.
The LORD of Hosts will defend them. They will consume and conquer with slingstones; they will drink and be rowdy as if with wine. They will be as full as the sprinkling basin, like [those] at the corners of the altar.
The LORD their God will save them on that day as the flock of His people; for they are like jewels in a crown, sparkling over His land.
How lovely and beautiful they will be! Grain will make the young men flourish, and new wine, the young women.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, because they will be filled.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavens, in Christ;
and to know the Messiah's love that surpasses knowledge, so you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
no longer will they hunger; no longer will they thirst; no longer will the sun strike them, or any heat.
Because the Lamb who is at the center of the throne will shepherd them; He will guide them to springs of living waters, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.
