Jonathan Isaiah 30:33


31 For through the voice of the Word of the Lord the Assyrian shall be broken, he that smote by his power. 32 And it shall come to pass, that the Lord shall cause to rest the vengeance of His might in every pass of their princes and mighty ones, even amongst them. The house of Israel shall praise with tabrets and harps, because of the mighty war which shall be waged for them against the people. 33 For hell is made ready from eternity on account of their sins; yea, the eternal King hath prepared it deep and wide: a fiery pyre as of abundance of fuel bums in it: the Word of the Lord, like an overwhelming torrent of brimstone, shall kindle it.

1 Timothy 1:17

New Testament

15 This saying is trustworthy and deserves full acceptance: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners”—and I am the worst of them! 16 But here is why I was treated with mercy: so that in me as the worst, Christ Jesus could demonstrate his utmost patience, as an example for those who are going to believe in him for eternal life. 17 Now to the eternal King, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever! Amen.

 Notes and References

"... Awareness of such divine remembrance is a foretaste of the “consolation(s)” people are to enjoy as a consequence of divine judgment (see Targum 2 Samuel 23:1; Targum Isaiah 8:2; 18:4; 40:1-2; Targum Jeremiah 12:5; 31:6, 26; Targum Hosea 6:2, with Luke 2:24-25; 6:24; Acts 4:36; Romans 15:5; 2 Corinthians 1:7; 1 Thessalonians 2:3-4). Moreover, favorable judgment may be attributed to an angelic advocate, designated by the Greek term parakletos (so Targum Job 33:23 and John 14:16-17, 26; 15:26; 16:7; 1 John 2:1-2). In all this, God acts as sovereign, the king of the ages (see Targum Isaiah 6:5; 30:33 Targum Jeremiah 10:10; Targum Zechariah 14:16; as well as 1 Timothy 1:17; [Revelation 15:3]), who is able to raise the dead with the sound of a trumpet (see 1 Corinthians 15:52; 1 Thessalonians 4:16, and Exodus 20:18) ..."
