thou shalt stop for a season, even until I command  thee again: then thou mayest translate again. And  except thou do this, behold thou shalt have no more  gift, and I will take away the things which I have  intrusted with thee.
11 And now, because I foresee the lying in wait  to destroy thee: Yea, I foresee that if my ser vant humbleth not himself, and receive a witness  from my hand, that he will fall into transgression;  and there are many that lie in wait to destroy thee  from off the face of the earth: And for this cause,  that thy days may be prolonged, I have given unto  thee these commandments; yea, for this cause I  have said, stop and stand still until I command thee,  and I will provide means whereby thou mayest ac complish the thing which I have commanded thee;  and if thou art faithful in keeping my command ments, thou shalt be lifted up at the last day:—  Amen. [p. 13]
