    And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done. 37Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. 38But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. 39Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.

    41He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.


    44But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.


    6Therefore thou hast forsaken thy people the house of Jacob, because they be replenished from the east, and are soothsayers like the Philistines, and they please themselves in the children of strangers.

    7Their 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:

    8Their land also is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made:


    1And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people:

    [Remember] when your Lord inspired to the angels, "I am with you, so strengthen those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved, so strike [them] upon the necks and strike from them every fingertip."

    8 12


    Remember, I am with you... (speaking to Muhammad).. so strengthen those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved..so strike upon the necks and strike with every fingertip...


    According to Ibn Saad, opposition in Mecca started when Muhammad delivered verses that condemned idol worship and the polytheism practiced by the Meccan forefathers.[83] However, the Quranic exegesis maintains that it began as Muhammad started public preaching.[84] As his followers increased, Muhammad became a threat to the local tribes and rulers of the city, whose wealth rested upon the Ka'aba, the focal point of Meccan religious life that Muhammad threatened to overthrow. Muhammad's denunciation of the Meccan traditional religion was especially offensive to his own tribe, the Quraysh, as they were the guardians of the Ka'aba.[82] Powerful merchants attempted to convince Muhammad to abandon his preaching; he was offered admission to the inner circle of merchants, as well as an advantageous marriage. He refused both of these offers.[82]

    Have We not made for him two eyes? And a tongue and two lips? And have shown him the two ways? But he has not broken through the difficult pass. And what can make you know what is the difficult pass? It is the freeing of a slave. Or feeding on a day of severe hunger; an orphan of near relationship, or a needy person in misery. And then being among those who believed and advised one another to patience and advised one another to mercy.
    — Quran (90:8–17)

    Tradition records at great length the persecution and ill-treatment towards Muhammad and his followers.[16] Sumayyah bint Khayyat, a slave of a prominent Meccan leader Abu Jahl, is famous as the first martyr of Islam; killed with a spear by her master when she refused to give up her faith. Bilal, another Muslim slave, was tortured by Umayyah ibn Khalaf who placed a heavy rock on his chest to force his conversion

    In 615, some of Muhammad's followers emigrated to the Ethiopian Kingdom of Aksum and founded a small colony under the protection of the Christian Ethiopian emperor Aṣḥama ibn Abjar.[16] Ibn Sa'ad mentions two separate migrations. According to him, most of the Muslims returned to Mecca prior to Hijra, while a second group rejoined them in Medina. Ibn Hisham and Tabari, however, only talk about one migration to Ethiopia. These accounts agree that Meccan persecution played a major role in Muḥammad's decision to suggest that a number of his followers seek refuge among the Christians in Abyssinia. According to the famous letter of ʿUrwa preserved in al-Tabari, the majority of Muslims returned to their native town as Islam gained strength and high ranking Meccans, such as Umar and Hamzah converted


    Muhammad, desperately hoping for an accommodation with his tribe, pronounced a verse acknowledging the existence of three Meccan goddesses considered to be the daughters of Allah. Muhammad retracted the verses the next day at the behest of Gabriel, claiming that the verses were whispered by the devil himself. Instead, a ridicule of these gods was offered.[89][n 4][n 5] This episode, known as "The Story of the Cranes," is also known as "Satanic Verses". According to the story, this led to a general reconciliation between Muḥammad and the Meccans, and the Abyssinia Muslims began to return home. When they arrived Gabriel had informed Muḥammad the two verses were not part of the revelation, but had been inserted by Satan.


    In other words, added in by a human heart with human fingers.. but not 'given'.

    5Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the LORD my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it. 6Keep therefore and do [them]; for this [is] your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation [is] a wise and understanding people. 7For what nation [is there so] great, who [hath] God [so] nigh unto them, as the LORD our God [is] in all [things that] we call upon him [for]? 8And what nation [is there so] great, that hath statutes and judgments [so] righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?




    behold

    wiser

    Daniel


    than Daniel

    3470. Ysha'yah


    ya shuh yah?


    yesh-ah-yaw

    yes sha. - yah?




    tell me.. ya so shuh...

    what is right and what is wrong??


    okay.. when you open your legs and find no hair, is that right or is that wrong?

    for me or for you?

    for you.


    Ma! what's for dinner?? I'm starving!







    Ecclesiastes 4:2-6
    "Wherefore I praised the dead which are already dead more than the living which are yet alive. 3Yea, better is he than both they, which hath not yet been, who hath not seen the evil work that is done under the sun.

    4Again, I considered all travail, and every right work, that for this a man is envied of his neighbour. This is also vanity and vexation of spirit. 5The fool foldeth his hands together, and eateth his own flesh. 6Better is an handful with quietness, than both the hands full with travail and vexation of spirit."



    (J)ohn 10:10 "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."



    Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding
    walk circumspectly
    not as fools
    the days are evil

    drunk with wine, wherein is excess;

    be not drunk with wine
    i[n] excess

    the husband is the head

    Christ
    is
    the
    head
    of every
    every
    man

    God
    is
    the head of Christ
    of every
    every
    man


    the husband is the head
    of the wife,

    of every
    every
    man
    Christ
    is
    the
    head
    and
    God
    is
    the head of Christ
    of every
    every
    man


    The fool hath said in his heart,
    There is no God.
    -who is-
    God
    -who is-
    the head of Christ
    of every
    every
    man


    They are corrupt,
    they have done abominable works,
    there is none that doeth good.


    [they] have forsaken the right way,
    [they] are gone astray,
    [they are in] the way of Balaam the son of Bosor,
    who [doesn't] love the wages of unrighteousness;??


    Ecclesiastes 4:2-6 So I concluded that the dead are better off than the living. But most fortunate of all are those who are not yet born. For they have not seen all the evil that is done under the sun. Then I observed that most people are motivated to success because they envy their neighbors. But this, too, is meaningless—like chasing the wind. “Fools fold their idle hands, leading them to ruin.” And yet, “Better to have one handful with quietness than two handfuls with hard work and chasing the wind.”

    "Wherefore I praised the dead which are already dead more than the living which are yet alive. 3Yea, better is he than both they, which hath not yet been, who hath not seen the evil work that is done under the sun.
    4Again, I considered all travail, and every right work, that for this a man is envied of his neighbour. This is also vanity and vexation of spirit. 5The fool foldeth his hands together, and eateth his own flesh. 6Better is an handful with quietness, than both the hands full with travail and vexation of spirit."


    So I concluded that the dead are better off than the living.
    being dead in sins
    and the uncircumcision of [the] flesh,

    O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

    or rather:
    O wretched man.
    that I am!
    who shall deliver me
    from [your] body of this death?



    so.. yes shu. yah.. ready?

    what is right and what is wrong??



    see one condemned? see one provoked unwarranted? see one trying to free himself from those attacks but not being let go?

    what is right? what is wrong?

    And then there are those who:




    or:






    very evil... true..

    7451. ra'

    bad, evil

    and some even cheer on.. rah rah rah!!

    bad, unpleasant, giving pain, unhappiness, misery

    A professor with tenure getting 'fired' for not changing his ways at school during these 'non discriminatory' years, but was always fine prior... is 'evil' that he had to lose his tenure.


    very misfortunate.. very unfortunate.

    The college students to still be 'influence-able' to bring such microaggressionisms to the real and effecting levels to other human life and futures, is also very unfortunate, misfortunate that they have to feel that way.

    (I)sa(i)ah 1:

    4 Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters:


    Does the parents not care??

    4 they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.


    [While your children are growing more and more corrupt]:

    7 Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.


    10 Hear the word of the LORD, [ye] rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of [our] God, ye people of Gomorrah.


    rulers are to parents as children are to Sodom


    11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.

    'LAW'...


    Matthew 3:7-10 "But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance: 9And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. 10And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire."


    17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.


    rather than


    11To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.

    12When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts?

    13Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.

    14Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.

    15And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.



    2 Chronicles 7:14 "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."
