The Cornerstone, Part II. Up and Down the Bible

The Stone which the builders rejected has become the Cornerstone.
By the LORD this has been done and it is wonderful in our eyes.

– Psalms 118:22-23

Part II. Up and Down the Bible

Isaiah 14:13-15

You [Lucifer] said in your heart: “I will scale the heavens, above the stars of God I will set up my throne; I will take my seat on the Mount of Assembly, in the recesses of the North. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will be like the Most High!” 

…Yet down to the nether world you go, to the recesses of the pit

Isaiah 57:7-9

Upon a high and lofty mountain you made your bed, and there you went up to offer sacrifice. Behind the door and the doorpost you placed your indecent symbol. Deserting me, you spread out your high, wide bed, and of those whose embraces you love you carved the symbol and gazed upon it…

…While you sent your ambassadors far away, down even to the nether world.


Jeremiah 51:25-26

Beware! I am against you, destroying mountain, destroyer of the entire earth, says the LORD; I will stretch forth my hand against you…

…roll you down over the cliffs, and make you a burnt mountain. They will not take from you a cornerstone, or a foundation stone, ruins forever shall you be, says the LORD.

May the LORD God bless you in the name of the Judeo-Christian tradition.
