call upon all nations; firstly, upon the Gen tiles, and then upon the Jews. And behold  and lo, this shall be their cry, and the voice  of the Lord unto all people: Go ye forth unto  the land of Zion, that the borders of my peo ple may be enlarged, and that her stakes may  be strengthened, and that Zion may go forth  unto the regions round about: yea, let the  cry go forth among all people; awake and  arise and go forth to meet the Bridegroom:  behold and lo the Bridegroom cometh, go ye  out to meet him. Prepare yourselves for the  great day of the Lord.
4 Watch, therefore, for ye know neither  the day nor the hour. Let them, therefore,  who are among the Gentiles, flee unto Zion.  And let them who be of Judah, flee unto Je rusalem, unto the mountains of the Lord’s  house. Go ye out from among the nations,  even from Babylon, from the midst of wicked ness, which is spiritual Babylon. But verily  thus saith the Lord, let not your flight be in  haste, but let all things be prepared before  you: and he that goeth, let him not look back,  lest sudden destruction shall come upon him.
5 Hearken and hear O ye inhabitants of the  earth. Listen ye elders of my church to gether, and hear the voice of the Lord, for he  calleth upon all men and he commandeth all  men everywhere to repent: for behold the  Lord God hath sent forth the angel, crying  through the midst of heaven, saying: prepare  ye the way of the Lord, and make his paths  strait, for the hour of his coming is nigh,  when the Lamb shall stand upon Mount Zion, [p. 432]

And let them who be of Judah, flee unto Jerusalem, unto the mountains of the Lord’s house. Go ye out from among the nations, even from Babylon, from the midst of wickedness, which is spiritual Babylon.

5 Hearken and hear O ye inhabitants of the earth. Listen ye elders of my church together, and hear the voice of the Lord, for he calleth upon all men and he commandeth all men everywhere to repent: for behold the Lord God hath sent forth the angel, crying through the midst of heaven, saying: prepare ye the way of the Lord, and make his paths strait, for the hour of his coming is nigh, when the Lamb shall stand upon Mount Zion, [p. 432]
