TJBU 8:16 O prophet, keep the testimony, testify not the testimony among them, because they do not obey; seal and hide the law, they are not willing to learn it. Isaiah 8:17 JPS 8:17 And I will wait for the LORD, that hideth His face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for Him.

Is not this the way of nations, the worshippers of idols? A people seek from their idol, the living from the dead. Isaiah 8:20 JPS 8:20 for instruction and for testimony?' —Surely they will speak according to this word, wherein there is no light.— TJBU 8:20 Thus ye shall say unto them: We will listen to the law which has been given to us, and to the testimony: yet ye shall go into captivity amongst the nations, and they shall speak to you according to this word. Now there is none amongst them, who would search and seek after it.
