    See now this is a sport. More than people scrambling to get a ball or making human pyramids. This takes practice and skill, props to this guy.

    (Fear God, Heed His Word or suffer the consequences):

    For the LORD spake thus to me
    with a strong hand,
    and instructed me

    that I should not walk
    in the way of this people,

    (Strong Hand): Signifies a powerful sense of the Lord's inspiration).

    Do not say,
    A conspiracy,
    concerning all that this people
    call a conspiracy,

    nor be afraid of their threats,
    nor be troubled.

    The LORD of hosts him you shall hallow;
    and let him be your fear,
    and let him be your dread.

    (Hallow): Means to treat as Holy. (Your fear): Indicates a sense of reverence, awe, and wonder. (Your dread): Indicates fright and terror. If the people want to be frightened of God, if they want to respond to God correctly, they should treat His name with awe and fear him. (Exodus 20:20)<---And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that (((ye sin not))).

    And he shall be for a sanctuary;
    but for a stone of stumbling
    and for
    a rock of offence

    (God is a sanctuary for believers, but a stone of stumbling for unbelievers.

    (Psalms 118:22)<---The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.

    (Luke 20:17-18)<---And he beheld them, and said, What is this then that is written, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner? Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

    (Romans 9:33)<---As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

    (1 Peter 2:6-8)<---Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. not you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, (((being disobedient))): whereunto also they were appointed).

    to both the houses of Israel,
    for a trap

    and for a snare
    to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

    (Isaiah 8:11-14).

    ***Judah is commanded to trust in the Lord or perish, a command reinforced by Isaiah and his children, who serve as signs to Judah (Verses 12-18).

    ***Judah is commanded to walk in the light of Isaiah's prophecies or be thrown into utter darkness.
