1Listen now also to what I have to tell you about the bright waters 1 Both here and at lxxiv. 4 Charles substituted ‘lightning’ for ‘waters’ to accord with the details of the vision as given in liii. 8–10. that are to come at the consummation after these black waters: this is the meaning of them. 2After the signs have appeared, which you were told about before, when the nations are in confusion, and the time of my Messiah is come, he will call all the nations together, and some of them he will spare, and some of them he will destroy. 3This is what will happen to the nations spared by him. 4Every nation that has not exploited 2 Text ‘known’. Israel and has not trampled the race of Jacob underfoot will be spared. 5And this will be because some out of all the nations will become subject to your people. 6But all those who have had dominion over you, or have exploited 2 Text ‘known’. you, will be given over to the sword.
