|The tower in Siloam
2 And Jesus answering Said, those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew
them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem?
5 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
6 He spake also
this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he carne and
sought fruit thereon, and found none.
7 Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come
seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground?
8 And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig
about it, and dung it:
9 And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.
Isaiah the prophet said,
7 Their land also is full of silver and gold, neither is there any end of their treasures;
their land is also full of horses, neither is there any end of their chariots:
8 Their land also is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which
their own fingers have made:
11 The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be. bowed
12 For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and
upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low:
14 And upon all the high mountains, and upon all the hills that are lifted up,
15 And upon every high tower, and upon every fenced wall,
17 And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made
low: and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.
