Today we use the Gregorian calendar from Pope Gregory; from the 1500’s.

 

July 11th, 2020 - in the 21 Century

 

July -- Julius Caesar's month

Middle English Julie
Latin Julius "Julius"
Latin Julius 
mensis "month of Julius"

 

Latin quintilis mensis "fifth month" – Now the 7th month L

 

Quintilis (and later Julius) has always had 31 days.

Julius Caesar reformed the Roman calendar (hence the Julian calendar) in 46 BC. In the process, he renamed this month after himself.

 

 

Yehovah God has His own calendar, which is deleted from the world 

 

We are now in the 4th month of God, day 19 - no scriptural name

 

Judaism uses Tammuz, a made up name

Ezek.8[ 14 ] Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the Yehovah's house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz - ( pagan deity )  תַּמּוּז - a Sumerian deity of food or vegetation, a Phoenician deity

Let’s start:

Some scriptual thoughts of what an abomination could be:

 

Lev.7 [18] And if any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings be eaten at all on the third day, it shall not be accepted; neither shall it be imputed unto him that offers it: it shall be an abomination, and the soul that eats of it shall bear his iniquity.

 

Lev.11

[1]And Yehovah spoke unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto them,
[2] Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These are the beasts which you shall eat among all the beasts that are on the earth.
[3] Whatsoever parts the hoof, and is cloven-footed, and chews the cud, among the beasts that shall you eat.

[4] Nevertheless these shall you not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the hoof: as the camel, because he chews the cud, but divides not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.
[5] And the coney, because he chews the cud, but divides not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.
[6] And the hare, because he chews the cud, but divides not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.
[7] And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be cloven-footed, yet he chews not the cud; he is unclean to you.
[8] Of their flesh shall you not eat, and their carcass shall you not touch; they are unclean to you.
[9] These shall you eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall you eat.
[10] And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an
abomination unto you:
[11] They shall be even an
abomination unto you; you shall not eat of their flesh, but you shall have their carcasses in abomination.
[12] Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters that shall be an
abomination unto you.
[13] And these are they which you shall have in
abomination among the fowls; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the ospray,
[14] And the vulture, and the kite after his kind;
[15] Every raven after his kind;
[16] And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk after his kind,
[17] And the little owl, and the cormorant, and the great owl,
[18] And the swan, and the pelican, and the gier eagle,
[19] And the stork, the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat.
[20] All fowls that creep, going upon all four, shall be an
abomination unto you.
[21] Yet these may you eat of every flying creeping thing that goes upon all four, which have legs above their feet, to leap withal upon the earth;[22] Even these of them you may eat; the locust after his kind, and the bald locust after his kind, and the beetle after his kind, and the grasshopper after his kind.

[23] But all other flying creeping things, which have four feet, shall be an abomination unto you.
[24] And for these you shall be unclean: whosoever touches the carcass of them shall be unclean until the evening.
[25] And whosoever bears ought of the carcass of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the evening.
[26] The carcasses of every beast which divides the hoof, and is not cloven-footed, nor chews the cud, are unclean unto you: every one that touches them shall be unclean.
[27] And whatsoever goes upon his paws, among all manner of beasts that go on all four, those are unclean unto you: whoso touches their carcass shall be unclean until the evening.
[28] And he that bears the carcass of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the evening: they are unclean unto you.
[29] These also shall be unclean unto you among the creeping things that creep upon the earth; the weasel, and the mouse, and the tortoise after his kind,
[30] And the ferret, and the chameleon, and the lizard, and the snail, and the mole.
[31] These are unclean to you among all that creep: whosoever doth touch them, when they be dead, shall be unclean until the even.
[32] And upon whatsoever any of them, when they are dead, doth fall, it shall be unclean; whether it be any vessel of wood, or raiment, or skin, or sack, whatsoever vessel it be, wherein any work is done, it must be put into water, and it shall be unclean until the evening; so it shall be cleansed.
[33] And every earthen vessel, where into any of them falls, whatsoever is in it shall be unclean; and you shall break it.
[34] Of all meat which may be eaten, that on which such water cometh shall be unclean: and all drink that may be drunk in every such vessel shall be unclean.
[35] And everything whereupon any part of their carcass falls shall be unclean; whether it be oven, or ranges for pots, they shall be broken down: for they are unclean, and shall be unclean unto you.
[36] Nevertheless a fountain or pit, wherein there is plenty of water, shall be clean: but that which touches their carcass shall be unclean.[37] And if any part of their carcass fall upon any sowing seed which is to be sown, it shall be clean.
[38] But if any water be put upon the seed, and any part of their carcass fall thereon, it shall be unclean unto you.
[39] And if any beast, of which you may eat, die; he that touches the carcass thereof shall be unclean until the evening.

[40] And he that eats of the carcass of it shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the evening: he also that bears the carcass of it shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even.[41] And every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth shall be an abomination; it shall not be eaten.[42] Whatsoever gosh upon the belly, and whatsoever gos upon all four, or whatsoever hath more feet among all creeping things that creep upon the earth, them you shall not eat; for they are an abomination.
[43] Ye shall not make yourselves abominable with any creeping thing that creeps, neither shall you make yourselves unclean with them, that you should be defiled thereby.[44] For I am Yehovah your God: you shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and you shall be holy; for I am holy: neither shall you defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.

[45] For I am Yehovah that brings you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: you shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.
[46] This is the law of the beasts, and of the fowl, and of every living creature that moves in the waters, and of every creature that creeps upon the earth:[47]
To make a difference between the unclean and the clean, and between the beast that may be eaten and the beast that may not be eaten.

 

Read all of Lev.18 if you get a chance

Lev.18 [22] You shall not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. [23] Neither shall you lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.

תֶּבֶל tevel {teh'-vel}

Meaning – confusion: (violation of nature or divine order), perversion (in sexual sin)

[29] For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people.

 

Lev.20 [13] If a man also lie with mankind, as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

 

Deut.7 [25] the graven images of their gods shall you burn with fire: you shall not desire the silver or gold that is on them, nor take it unto yourself lest you be snared therein: for it is an abomination to Yehovah your God.[26] Neither shall you bring an abomination into your house, lest you be a cursed thing like it: but you shall utterly detest it, and you shall utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing.

 

Deut.12 [28] Observe and hear all these words which I command thee, that it may go well with thee, and with your children after thee forever, when you doest that which is good and right in the sight of Yehovah your God.[29] When Yehovah your God shall cut off the nations from before thee, whither you go to possess them, and you succeed them, and dwell in their land;[30] Take heed to thyself that you be not snared by following them, after that they be destroyed from before thee; and that you inquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise.[31] You shall not do so unto Yehovah your God: for every abomination to Yehovah, which he hates, have they done unto their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods.

 

Deut.13

[1] If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and gives you a sign or a wonder,[2] And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spoke unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which you have not known, and let us serve them;
[3] Thou shall not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for Yehovah your God proves you, to know whether you love Yehovah your God with all your heart and with all your soul.[4] Ye shall walk after Yehovah your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and you shall serve him, and cleave unto him.[5] And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from Yehovah your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which Yehovah your God commanded thee to walk in. So shall you put the evil away from the midst of you.


[6] If your brother, the son of your mother, or your son, or your daughter, or the wife of your bosom, or your friend, which is as your own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which you hast not known, you, nor your fathers;
[7] Namely, of the gods of the people which are round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth;[8] Thou shall not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall your eye pity him, neither shall you spare, neither shall you conceal him:[9] But you shall surely kill him; your hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people.[10] And you shall stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to thrust thee away from Yehovah your God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.[11] And all Israel shall hear, and fear, and shall do no more any such wickedness as this is among you.


[12] If you shall hear say in one of your cities, which Yehovah your God hath given thee to dwell there, saying,[13] Certain men, the children of Belial, are gone out from among you, and have withdrawn the inhabitants of their city, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which you have not known;[14] Then shall you inquire, and make search, and ask diligently; and, behold, if it be truth, and the thing certain, that such
abomination is wrought among you;[15] Thou shall surely smite the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, destroying it utterly, and all that is therein, and the cattle thereof, with the edge of the sword.
[16] And you shall gather all the spoil of it into the midst of the street thereof, and shall burn with fire the city, and all the spoil thereof every whit, for Yehovah your God: and it shall be an heap for ever; it shall not be built again.[17] And there shall cleave naught of the cursed thing to your hand: that Yehovah may turn from the fierceness of his anger, and show thee mercy, and have compassion upon thee, and multiply thee, as he hath sworn unto your fathers;[18] When you shall hearken to the voice of Yehovah your God, to keep all his commandments which I command thee this day, to do that which is right in the eyes of Yehovah your God.

 

Deut.17

[1] Thou shall not sacrifice unto Yehovah your God any bullock, or sheep, wherein is blemish, or any evilfavouredness: for that is an abomination unto Yehovah your God.
[2] If there be found among you, within any of your gates which Yehovah your God gives thee, man or woman, that hath wrought wickedness in the sight of Yehovah your God, in transgressing his covenant,
[3] And hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded;
[4] And it be told thee, and you have heard of it, and inquired diligently, and, behold, it be true, and the thing certain, that such
abomination is wrought in Israel:
[5] Then shall you bring forth that man or that woman, which have committed that wicked thing, unto your gates, even that man or that woman, and shall stone them with stones, till they die.
[6] At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of death be put to death; but at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death.
[7] The hands of the witnesses shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterward the hands of all the people. So you shall put the evil away from among you.

 

Deut.22 [5] The woman shall not wear that which pertains unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto Yehovah your God.

 

Deut.23 [19] You shall not lend upon usury to your brother; usury of money, usury of victuals, usury of anything that is lent upon usury:[18] You shall not bring the hire of a whore, or the price of a dog, into the house of Yehovah your God for any vow: for even both these are abomination unto Yehovah your God.

 

Deut.24 [1] When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favor in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house.[2] And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man's wife.[3] And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and gives it in her hand, and sends her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her to be his wife;[4] Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before Yehovah: and you shall not cause the land to sin, which Yehovah your God gives you for an inheritance.

 

Deut.25 [13] You shall not have in your bag divers weights, a great and a small.[14] You shall not have in your house divers measures, a great and a small.[15] But you shall have a perfect and just weight, a perfect and just measure shall you have: that your days may be lengthened in the land which Yehovah your God gives you.[16] For all that do such things, and all that do unrighteously are an abomination unto Yehovah your God.

Deut.27 [15] Cursed be the man that makes any graven or molten image, an abomination unto Yehovah, the work of the hands of the craftsman, and puts it in a secret place. And all the people shall answer and say, Amen.

Deut.32 [16] They provoked Him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations provoked they him to anger.

 

1Kgs.11 [1] But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites;[2] Of the nations concerning which Yehovah said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love.[3] And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines: and his wives turned away his heart.[4] For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with Yehovah his God, as was the heart of David his father.[5] For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites.[6] And Solomon did evil in the sight of Yehovah, and went not fully after Yehovah, as did David his father.[7] Then did Solomon build an high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, in the hill that is before Jerusalem, and for Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon.
[8] And likewise did he for all his strange wives, which burnt incense and sacrificed unto their gods.[9] And Yehovah was angry with Solomon, because his heart was turned from Yehovah God of Israel, which had appeared unto him twice,[10] And had commanded him concerning this thing, that he should not go after other gods: but he kept not that which Yehovah commanded.

 

1Kgs.14[24] And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which Yehovah cast out before the children of Israel.

 

Now, a few Proverbs:

Prov.3 [32] for the froward is abomination to Yehovah: but his secret is with the righteous.

Prov.6 [16] These six things doth Yehovah hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: [17] A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,[18] An heart that devises wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,[19] A false witness that speaks lies, and he that sows discord among brethren.

Prov.8 [7] For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips.

Prov.11 [1] A false balance is abomination to Yehovah: but a just weight is his delight.

[20] They that are of a froward heart are abomination to Yehovah: but such as are upright in their way are his delight.

Prov.12 [22] Lying lips are abomination to Yehovah: but they that deal truly are his delight.

Prov.13 [19] the desire accomplished is sweet to the soul: but it is abomination to fools to depart from evil.

Prov.15 [8] The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to Yehovah: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.

[9] The way of the wicked is an abomination unto Yehovah: but he loveth him that follows after righteousness.

[26] The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to Yehovah: but the words of the pure are pleasant words.

Prov.16 [5] Everyone that is proud in heart is an abomination to Yehovah: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.

[12] It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness: for the throne is established by righteousness.

Prov.17 [15] He that justifies the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to Yehovah.

Prov.20 [10] Divers weights, and divers measures, both of them are alike abomination to Yehovah.

[23] Divers weights are an abomination unto Yehovah; and a false balance is not good.

Prov.21 [27] The sacrifice of the wicked is abomination: how much more, when he brings it with a wicked mind?

Prov.24 [9] The thought of foolishness is sin: and the scorner is an abomination to men.

Prov.26 [25] When he speaks fair, believe him not: for there are seven abominations in his heart.

Prov.28 [9] He that turns away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination.

Prov.29 [27] An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked.

 

The book of Ezekiel has the word “abomination” many times, here are just a few:

Ezek.44 [1] Then he brought me back the way of the gate of the outward sanctuary which looks toward the east; and it was shut.
[2] Then said Yehovah unto me; This gate shall be shut, it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter in by it; because Yehovah, the God of Israel, hath entered in by it, therefore it shall be shut.
[3] It is for the prince; the prince, he shall sit in it to eat bread before Yehovah; he shall enter by the way of the porch of that gate, and shall go out by the way of the same.
[4] Then brought he me the way of the north gate before the house: and I looked, and, behold, the glory of Yehovah filled the house of Yehovah: and I fell upon my face.
[5] And Yehovah said unto me, Son of man, mark well, and behold with your eyes, and hear with your ears all that I say unto thee concerning all the ordinances of the house of Yehovah, and all the laws thereof; and mark well the entering in of the house, with every going forth of the sanctuary.
[6] And you shall say to the rebellious, even to the house of Israel, Thus says the Lord Yehovah; O you house of Israel, let it suffice you of all your abominations,
[7] In that you have brought into my sanctuary strangers, uncircumcised in heart, and uncircumcised in flesh, to be in my sanctuary, to pollute it, even my house, when you offer my bread, the fat and the blood, and they have broken my covenant because of all your abominations.
[8] And you have not kept the charge of mine holy things: but you have set keepers of my charge in my sanctuary for yourselves.

[9] Thus says the Lord Yehovah No stranger, uncircumcised in heart, nor uncircumcised in flesh, shall enter into my sanctuary, of any stranger that is among the children of Israel.

 

Book of Daniel

Dan.9 [27] And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

Dan.11 [31] And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that makes desolate.

Dan.12 [11] And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that makes desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.

Mal.2 [11] Judah hath dealt treacherously, and an abomination is committed in Israel and in Jerusalem; for Judah hath profaned the holiness of Yehovah which he loved, and hath married the daughter of a strange god.

 

The word “abomination” is 6 times in the Gospels and letters

Matt.24 [15] When you therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso reads, let him understand :) [16] Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:
[17] Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take anything out of his house:
[18] Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.

Same story:

Mark.13 [14] But when you shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that reads understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains: [15] And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take anything out of his house:[16] And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment.

 

Luke.16 [15] and Yeshua said unto them, you are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knows your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.

 

Rev.17 [1] And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come here; I will show unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sits upon many waters:
[2] With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
[3] So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
[4] And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
[5] And upon her forehead was a name written,
MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

[6] And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Yeshua: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
[7] And the angel said unto me, wherefore didst you marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carries her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
[8] The beast that you saw was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
[9] And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sits.
[10] And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
[11] And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goes into perdition.
[12] And the ten horns which you saw are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
[13] These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
[14] These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
[15] And he said unto me, The waters which you saw, where the whore sits, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
[16] And the ten horns which you saw upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
[17] For God hath put in their hearts to fulfill his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
[18] And the woman which you saw is that great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth.
[4] And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:[5] And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

 

Rev.21

[1] And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
[2] And I John saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
[3] And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
[4] And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
[5] And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
[6] And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
[7] He that overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
[8] But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
[9] And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come here, I will show thee the bride, the Lamb's wife.
[10] And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
[11] Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;
[12] And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:
[13] On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.
[14] And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
[15] And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.
[16] And the city lies foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.
[17] And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.
[18] And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.
[19] And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;
[20] The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.
[21] And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.
[22] And I saw no temple therein: for the Yehovah God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
[23] And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
[24] And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honor into it.
[25] And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.
[26] And they shall bring the glory and honor of the nations into it.
[27]
And there shall in no wise enter into it anything that defiles, neither whatsoever works abomination, or makes a lie:

but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life. J

 

In closing for today:

Be aware of things, places and people that may be an abomination unto our God and avoid them.

 

Shabbat Shalom
