Wo, I say again, unto that house, or that vil lage or city, that rejecteth you, or your words,  or your testimony of me; for I, the Almighty,  have laid my hands upon the nations to  scourge them for their wickedness; and  plagues shall go forth, and they shall not be  taken from the earth until I have completed  my work which shall be cut short in righte ousness; until all shall know me, who remain,  even from the least unto the greatest, and  shall be filled with the knowledge of the Lord,  and shall see eye to eye, and shall lift up their  voice, and with the voice together sing this  new song, saying,
17 The Lord hath brought again Zion:
The Lord hath redeemed his people, Israel,
According to the election of grace,
Which was brought to pass by the faith
And covenant of their fathers.
The Lord hath redeemed his people,
And satan is bound, and time is no longer:
The Lord hath gathered all things in one:
The Lord hath brought down Zion from above:
The Lord hath brought up Zion from beneath;
The earth hath travelled and brought forth    her strength;
And truth is established in her bowels;
And the heavens have smiled upon her;
And she is clothed with the glory of her God:
For he stands in the midst of his people:
Glory, and honor, and power, and might,
Be ascribed to our God, for he is full of mercy,
Justice, grace and truth, and peace,
For ever and ever Amen.
18 And again, verily, verily I say unto you, [p. 120]
Wo, I say again, unto that house, or that village or city, that rejecteth you, or your words, or your testimony of me; for I, the Almighty, have laid my hands upon the nations to scourge them for their wickedness; and plagues shall go forth, and they shall not be taken from the earth until I have completed my work which shall be cut short in righteousness; until all shall know me, who remain, even from the least unto the greatest, and shall be filled with the knowledge of the Lord, and shall see eye to eye, and shall lift up their voice, and with the voice together sing this new song, saying,
