I Will Make Him a (Zodiac) Sign and a Proverb
13:1 And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, prophesy against the (Gemini) prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say thou unto them that prophesy out of their own (lunar) hearts, Hear ye the word of the Lord;
3 Thus saith the Lord God; Woe unto the foolish (Gemini) prophets, that follow their own (lunar) spirit, and have (lunar) seen nothing!
4 O Israel, thy (Gemini) prophets are like the (Ursa Minor and Cnis Minor) foxes in the deserts.
5 Ye have not gone up into the (lunar) gaps, neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel to stand (Gemini lying down) in the battle in the day of the Lord.
6 They have (lunar eye) seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The Lord saith: and the Lord hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that they would confirm the word.
7 Have ye not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying divination, whereas ye say, The Lord saith it; albeit I have not spoken?
8 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Because ye have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith the Lord God.
9 And mine hand shall be upon the (Gemini) prophets that (lunar eye) see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my (Gemini) people, neither shall they be written in the (red radius pen) writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the Lord God.
10 Because, even because they have seduced my (Gemini) people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a (red radius line) wall, and, lo, others daubed it with (lunar) untempered morter:
11 Say unto them which daub it with (lunar) untempered morter, that it shall fall: there shall be an overflowing (rotating star) shower; and ye, O great (rotating star) hailstones, shall fall; and a stormy wind shall rend it.
12 Lo, when the (red radius line) wall is fallen, shall it not be said unto you, Where is the (lunar) daubing wherewith ye have daubed it?
13 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; I will even rend it with a stormy wind in my fury; and there shall be an overflowing shower in mine anger, and great hailstones in my fury to consume it.
14 So will I break down the (red radius line) wall that ye have daubed with (lunar) untempered morter, and bring it down to the ground, so that the foundation thereof shall be discovered, and it shall fall, and ye shall be consumed in the midst thereof: and ye shall know that I am the Lord.
15 Thus will I accomplish my (solar fiery) wrath upon the (red radius line) wall, and upon them that have daubed it with (lunar) untempered morter, and will say unto you, The wall is no more, neither they that daubed it;
16 To wit, the (Gemini) prophets of Israel which prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and which see visions of peace for her, and there is no peace, saith the Lord God.
17 Likewise, thou son of man, set thy face against the (Gemini) daughters of thy people, which prophesy out of their own (lunar) heart; and prophesy thou against them,
18 And say, Thus saith the Lord God; Woe to the (Gemini) women that sew (lunar) pillows to all armholes, and make (crescent) kerchiefs upon the (lunar) head of every stature to hunt souls! Will ye hunt the souls of my (Gemini) people, and will ye save the souls alive that come unto you?
The ancients were accustomed when they reclined at table to have cushions under their arms, though this is not our habit. But there is no doubt that they wished to represent a kind of sleep, like the foolish who consult oracles, and think themselves in ecstasies, and snatched away beyond all thoughts of this world. Then they had veils or coverings which they put over their heads. In this way imposture flourished with the Roman augurs; for they veiled their head when they wished to begin their incantations. Livy says, that the augur stood at the threshold with his head covered, and uttered these words, "O Jupiter, hear;" ["Lib. 1. ch. 32. See also chap. 36.]
19 And will ye pollute me among my (Gemini) people for handfuls of (solar) barley and for pieces of (solar) bread, to slay the (Gemini) souls that should not die, and to save the (Gemini) souls alive that should not live, by your lying to my (Gemini) people that hear your lies?
20 Wherefore thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against your (lunar) pillows, wherewith ye there hunt the (Gemini) souls to make them fly, and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the (Gemini) souls go, even the (Gemini) souls that ye hunt to make them fly.
21 Your (lunar) kerchiefs also will I tear, and deliver my (Gemini) people out of your hand, and they shall be no more in your hand to be hunted; and ye shall know that I am the Lord.
22 Because with lies ye have made the heart of the righteous sad (lunar frown), whom I have not made sad; and strengthened the hands of the (Gemini) wicked, that he should not return from his wicked way, by promising him life:
23 Therefore ye shall see no more vanity, nor divine divinations: for I will deliver my (Gemini) people out of your hand: and ye shall know that I am the Lord.
14:1 Then came certain of the (Gemini) elders of Israel unto me, and sat before me.
2 And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
3 Son of man, these (Gemini) men have set up their (crescent) idols in their (lunar) heart, and put the (lunar) stumblingblock of their iniquity before their face: should I be enquired of at all by them?
4 Therefore speak unto them, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Every man of the house of Israel that setteth up his (crescent) idols in his (lunar) heart, and putteth the (lunar) stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face, and cometh to the (Orion) prophet; I the Lord will answer him that cometh according to the multitude of his idols;
5 That I may take the (Gemini) house of Israel in their own (lunar) heart, because they are all estranged from me through their idols.
6 Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord God; Repent, and turn yourselves from your idols; and turn away your faces from all your (lunar) abominations.
7 For every one of the house of Israel, or of the stranger that sojourneth in Israel, which separateth himself from me, and setteth up his idols in his heart, and putteth the (lunar) stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face, and cometh to a (Orion) prophet to enquire of him concerning me; I the Lord will answer him by myself:
8 And I will set my face against that man, and will make him a (Zodiac) sign and a proverb, and I will (red radius line) cut him off from the midst of my (Gemini) people; and ye shall know that I am the Lord.
9 And if the (Orion) prophet be deceived when he hath spoken a thing, I the Lord have deceived that (Orion) prophet, and I will stretch out my hand upon him, and will destroy him from the midst of my (Gemini) people Israel.
10 And they shall bear the punishment of their iniquity: the punishment of the (Orion) prophet shall be even as the punishment of him that seeketh unto him;
11 That the house of Israel may go no more astray from me, neither be polluted any more with all their transgressions; but that they may be my (Gemini) people, and I may be their God, saith the Lord God.
12 The word of the Lord came again to me, saying,
13 Son of man, when the land sinneth against me by trespassing grievously, then will I stretch out mine hand upon it, and will break the (red radius line) staff of the (solar) bread thereof, and will send (lunar empty bowl) famine upon it, and will (blue radius line) cut off man and beast from it:
14 Though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they should deliver but their own souls by their righteousness, saith the Lord God.
15 If I cause noisome beasts to pass through the land, and they spoil it, so that it be desolate, that no man may pass through because of the beasts:
16 Though these three men were in it, as I live, saith the Lord God, they shall deliver neither (Gemini) sons nor (Gemini) daughters; they only shall be delivered, but the land shall be desolate.
17 Or if I bring a sword upon that land, and say, Sword, go through the land; so that I (blue radius "X") cut off man and beast from it:
18 Though these three men were in it, as I live, saith the Lord God, they shall deliver neither (Gemini) sons nor (Gemini) daughters, but they only shall be delivered themselves.
19 Or if I send a pestilence into that land, and pour out my fury upon it in (red radius line) blood, to cut off from it man and beast:
20 Though Noah, Daniel, and Job were in it, as I live, saith the Lord God, they shall deliver neither (Gemini) son nor daughter; they shall but deliver their own souls by their righteousness.
21 For thus saith the Lord God; How much more when I (blue radius "X") send my four sore judgments upon Jerusalem, the (Taurus) sword, and the (Aquarius) famine, and the noisome (Leo) beast, and the (Scorpio) pestilence, to cut off from it man and beast?
22 Yet, behold, therein shall be left a remnant that shall be brought forth, both (Gemini) sons and daughters: behold, they shall come forth unto you, and ye shall see their way and their doings: and ye shall be comforted concerning the evil that I have brought upon Jerusalem, even concerning all that I have brought upon it.
23 And they shall comfort you, when ye see their ways and their doings: and ye shall know that I have not done without cause all that I have done in it, saith the Lord God.
15:1 And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, what is the (red radius) vine tree more than any (green Milky Way) tree, or than a (green Milky Way) branch which is among the trees of the forest?
3 Shall wood be taken thereof to do any work? or will (Gemini) men take a pin of it to hang any (lunar or solar) vessel thereon?
4 Behold, it is cast into the (solar or lunar) fire for fuel; the (solar or lunar) fire devoureth both the ends of it, and the midst of it is burned. Is it meet for any work?
5 Behold, when it was whole, it was meet for no work: how much less shall it be meet yet for any work, when the fire hath devoured it, and it is burned?
6 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; As the (red radius) vine tree among the (green Milky Way) trees of the forest, which I have given to the (solar or lunar) fire for fuel, so will I give the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
7 And I will set my face against them; they shall go out from one (lunar) fire, and another (solar) fire shall devour them; and ye shall know that I am the Lord, when I set my face against them.
8 And I will make the land desolate, because they have committed a trespass, saith the Lord God.
