The Lord Answers Again

1I will stand on my watch, and set me on the tower, and will watch to see what he will say to me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved. 2And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain on tables, that he may run that reads it. 3For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. 4Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith. 5Yes also, because he transgresses by wine, he is a proud man, neither keeps at home, who enlarges his desire as hell, and is as death, and cannot be satisfied, but gathers to him all nations, and heaps to him all people:
