1902 Rotherham's Emphasized Bible (EBR)
1 The captivity of Judah for her sin. 5 Trust in man is cursed, 7 in God is blessed. 9 The deceitful heart cannot deceive God. 12 The salvation of God. 15 The prophet complaineth of the mockers of his prophecy. 19 He is sent to renew the Covenant in hallowing the Sabbath.
17:1 ¶ The sin of Judah, is written, With a stylus of iron, With the point of a diamond: It is engraved, Upon the tablet of their heart, And upon the horns of your altars;

17:3 O my mountain in the field, Thy substance, all thy treasures, for a prey, will I give: Thy high places for sin, within all thy bounds.
17:4 So shalt thou, even of thyself, suffer to rest the inheritance which I gave thee, Seeing that I will cause thee to serve thine enemies, in the land which thou knowest not; For, a fire, have ye kindled in mine anger, Unto times age-abiding, shall it burn.

17:8 For he shall become like a tree planted by waters, And, by a stream, shall he send out his roots, Neither shall he perceive when heat cometh, But his leaf shall continue green: Even, in a year of dearth, shall he not be anxious, Neither shall he cease from bearing fruit.
17:9 Deceitful, is the heart above all things And, dangerously wayward,Who can know it?
17:11 [As] a partridge gathereth eggs she did not lay, [So] is he that maketh riches, but not with justice,In the midst of his days, shall he leave them, And, in his latter end, prove to have been base.
17:12 ¶ A throne of glory, exalted from the beginning, hath been the place of our sanctuary.
17:16 But, as for me, I have neither forced myself away from tending the flock after thee, Nor yet, for the woeful day, have I longedthou, knowest,That which came out of my lips, before thy face, was uttered.
17:17 Do not thou become to me a terror,My refuge, art thou, in the day of calamity.

17:22 Neither shall ye take forth any burden out of your houses, on the sabbath, day, Nor, any manner of work, shall ye do,But ye shall hallow the sabbath day, As I commanded your fathers.

17:24 And it shall come to pass,If ye will, indeed hearken, unto me, Declareth Yahweh, To bring in no burden, through the gates of this city, on the sabbath, day,But to hallow the sabbath day, by not doing thereon any manner of work,
17:25 Then shall enter in through the gates of this city, Kings and princes, Sitting on the throne of David, Riding in chariots and on horses, They, and their princes, The men of Judah, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, And this city shall remain unto times age-abiding.
17:26 And they shall come inOut of the cities of Judah, and, Out of the places round about Jerusalem, and, Out of the land of Benjamin, and, Out of the lowlands, and out of the hill country, and, Out of the South, Bringing in ascending-offering, and peace-offering, and meal-offering, and frankincense,Even they who bring in a thank-offering into the house of Yahweh.
17:27 But, if ye will not hearken unto meTo hallow the sabbath day, And to bear no burden and bring in through the gates of Jerusalem, on the sabbath day, Then will I kindle a fire within her gates, And it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem, And shall not be quenched.
