41 He will lead them all impartially, and there will be no arrogance among them that any of them should be oppressed. 42 This is the magnificence of the king of Israel that God acknowledged, to raise him over the House of Israel to discipline it. 43 His words will be purer than the finest gold. In the assemblies he will judge the tribes of a sanctified people. His words will be as the words of the holy ones, among sanctified peoples. 44 Happy are th e people born in those days who will see the good fortune of Israel that God wall cause in the gathering of the tribes. 45 May God hasten his mercy to Israel; May he shield us from the contamination of defiled enemies; 46 The Lord himself is our king forevermore.
14 “To the angel of the church in Laodicea write the following: “This is the solemn pronouncement of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the originator of God’s creation: 15 ‘I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either cold or hot! 16 So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I am going to vomit you out of my mouth! 17 Because you say, “I am rich and have acquired great wealth, and need nothing,” but do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked, 18 take my advice and buy gold from me refined by fire so you can become rich! Buy from me white clothing so you can be clothed and your shameful nakedness will not be exposed, and buy eye salve to put on your eyes so you can see! 19 All those I love, I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent! 20 Listen! I am standing at the door and knocking! If anyone hears my voice and opens the door I will come into his home and share a meal with him, and he with me.
