The powerful word of God (Isa 66:5-66:6)

“Hear the word of Yahweh!

You who tremble at his word!

Your own people!

Those who hate you!

Those who cast you out

For my name’s sake!

They have said.

‘Let Yahweh be glorified!

Thus we may see your joy!

But it is they

Who shall be put to shame.

Listen!

An uproar from the city!

A voice from the temple!

The voice of Yahweh!

He renders retribution to his enemies!”

The prophet wanted everyone to hear and tremble at the powerful word of Yahweh. Those people who rejected the name of Yahweh will be put to shame. There will be an uproar in the city and the voice of Yahweh will be heard from the Temple as he renders retribution to his enemies.
