14 Therefore, hear the word of the Lord, O scoffers, Who rule this people who are in Jerusalem, 15 Because you have said, “We have made a covenant with death, And with [a]Sheol we have made a [b]pact. The overwhelming [c]scourge will not reach us when it passes by, For we have made falsehood our refuge and we have concealed ourselves with deception.”
“Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a tested stone, A costly cornerstone for the foundation, [e]firmly placed. He who believes in it will not be [f]disturbed. 17 “I will make justice the measuring line And righteousness the level; Then hail will sweep away the refuge of lies And the waters will overflow the secret place. 18 “Your covenant with death will be [g]canceled, And your pact with Sheol will not stand; When the overwhelming scourge passes through, Then you become its trampling place.
26 Then after the sixty-two weeks the [a]Messiah will be cut off and have [b]nothing, and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. And [c]its end will come with a flood; even to the end [d]there will be war; desolations are determined.27 And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; and on the wing of [e]abominations will come one who [f]makes desolate, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who [g]makes desolate.”
