Two

By mercy and truth iniquity is purged. Righteousness' and peace's lips together merged. Into the great ark animals marched in pairs, as Noah continued in obedience and prayers. In Peleg's day, men's years were cut to half. Two nations at war --- "son of promise" means "to laugh." Parallel testaments fuse old with new, scriptures aligning as smooth as glue. The next Adam came and fulfilled the whole law. Entreat Him with humble love and awe. Between thieves Yeshua was crucified. Angels greeted His tomb after He died. Unbelievers will die a second time, guilty of each committed crime. The faithful will ressurect unto new life, greeting their groom as a youthful wife. Before you life and death are set. Choose whom you will serve, love your only debt. A great light rules the day, and lessor the night. Wield your shiny sword for truth and might. No height or depth in all of creation can separate believers from God's salvation. No eye has seen; no ear has heard God's plans beyond the living Word... ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. Psalm 85:10 By mercy and truth iniquity is purged, and by the fear of God men depart from evil. Proverbs 16:6 *Isaac (Abraham's son) means "laughter" or "he will laugh". "Two nations at war" refers to the ongoing conflict between Muslims and Jews. No eye has seen no ear has heard the things that God has prepared for those who love him. 1 Corinthians 2:9 Deuteronomy 30:15 See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil; Genesis 1:16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. Romans 13:8 Owe no man anything, but to love one another, for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. Romans 8:39  Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. 1-22-23

Good job with this one!! It's sad to know that many Americans no longer believe in Christianity. The new socialism is brainwashing the kids and our newest generation will make sweeping changes to the world, which are already being established by the elitists. I sure do hope those who love God can endure the coming trials.

Fine poetry, Juliet. Much food for thought... Interesting to me, though, how translation can be so far off... One example: Psalm 85:10 should read -- 'Kindness and Truth have met; Righteousness and Peace have kissed.' The words for Kindness (Hebrew = Chesed) and Righteousness (Hebrew = Tzedek) are very basic Hebrew words, which I have never ever seen mistranslated -- except in Christian and Muslim renditions of the Bible... Let the buyer beware! ~ Just sayin,' Gershon

I use biblehub.com which has the Hebrew words and yes, that is what the word is chesed (kindness) and tszedeq (righteousness) spelling on the second was a bit different. Thanks, Gershon!

I gather that you are Hebrew, based on some of your poems as well. I appreciate your helpful comments.

Thanks for your insite. I had to do some research as well. Seems that there is no "perfect" English word for "chesed." https://www.bible-researcher.com/chesed.html I'm interested in learning more about Hebrew language and culture. Have you heard of "your Dutch uncle, John?" He's got lots of great videos on YouTube where he uses Hebrew words to expound on scripture and numerical values are also included which shows amazing parallels and depth in meaning.
