16 Bind up the testimony; seal the teaching[a] among my disciples.17 I will wait for the Lord, who is hiding his face from the house of Jacob, and I will hope in him.18 Behold, I and the children whom the Lord has given me are signs and portents in Israel from the Lord of hosts, who dwells on Mount Zion.19 And when they say to you, “Inquire of the mediums and the necromancers who chirp and mutter,” should not a people inquire of their God? Should they inquire of the dead on behalf of the living?20 To the teaching and to the testimony! If they will not speak according to this word, it is because they have no dawn.21 They will pass through the land,[b] greatly distressed and hungry. And when they are hungry, they will be enraged and will speak contemptuously against[c] their king and their God, and turn their faces upward.22 And they will look to the earth, but behold, distress and darkness, the gloom of anguish. And they will be thrust into thick darkness.
