Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the Ruach; prophesy, son of man, and say to the Ruach, thus says Adonai Elohim: ‘Come from the four winds Ruach, and breathe into these slain, that they may live.’ ”
Adonai looked and was displeased that there was no justice. He saw that there was no one, he was astonished that no one was interceding; so his own arm worked salvation for him, and his own righteousness sustained him. He put on righteousness as his breastplate, and the helmet of salvation on his head; he put on the garments of vengeance and wrapped himself in zeal as in a cloak. According to what they have done, so will he repay wrath to his enemies and retribution to his foes; he will repay the islands their due. From the west, men will fear the name of Adonai, and from the rising of the sun, they will revere his glory. For he will come like a rushing stream that the Ruach Adonai drives along. “The Redeemer will come to Zion, to those in Jacob who repent of their sins,” thus declares Adonai.
