    Devour the proud with the fire of his fury. Establish the poor and afflicted to follow the Lord. We see that coming today. One God The Lord is Great and we are his people those that believe on Jesus. The pure language of Love. The great proud boasters full of self serving pride will be removed. The humble will be exalted.

    Verses 16 and 17- we may feel overwhelmed, but Jehovah God gives us the assurance that He and his son are backing us.
  • Brianna vs. 9
    For then I will change the language of the peoples to a pure language, So that all of them may call on the name of Jehovah, To serve him shoulder to shoulder.’

    Religion was never meant to be divided. There is one God, and he intended for us to worship him in ONE accord, one language, so that all people on this earth can serve "Shoulder to Shoulder".

    Verse 17 The Lord will joy over us with singing - wow wow and another wow
  • Irene123
    V. 9 (last half) - "..... that they may call upon the Name of the Lord, to serve Him with ONE consent." Acts 2:38; Acts 7:59 (and saying, Lord JESUS.....). Stephen called GOD - Jesus; just as Thomas did in Jn.28:20 - my LORD and my GOD; he said this to - Jesus. He was a Jew, just like Jesus; Jews did NOT believe in plural gods. Nor did Jesus rebuke Thomas.
