Isaiah 54:17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
For those who are new here, I will tell you that this Biblical passage is Hellenic (Greek) in origin. I have gone into the Hellenic origin of the Bible in other articles that you will find here.
This verse is speaking specifically to people who do the right thing but are attacked for it by those who have something to lose, or who will be exposed, by the actions of the righteous ones. The LORD represents the planet Saturn: the Cosmic Judge and Punisher. I have already explained Saturn’s role in the Universe in some detail here and briefly here. So, the LORD will punish those who in any way lash out at, the righteous. Making things right is the domain of the LORD/Saturn, so those who act as He does will be defended/protected by Him.
What is really being referred to here is God’s Justice, or Karma (also Saturn’s domain) that covers actions that go way beyond safeguarding the righteous. Even something as seemingly inconsequential as having your ideas stolen by the envious and the inadequate, will incur a Karmic debt. Every dirty deed is recorded by Saturn in His ledger. His accounts have a due date whereby they have to be paid in full. If not, there will be hell to pay…
I can’t believe how timely this blog is. I’ve been thinking along this vein all day.
Thank you, Helen
