Reading Isaiah’s Mind – Chapter 32 – verses 11 – 20

robes of the High Priest
Israel’s mantle (robe; role; responsibilty is to lead and instruct the “family-of-man” in righteousness.

11. The arrogance (pomposity; conceit; disdain; vanity; self-importance; stiff-necked ways; presumptuousness) of Salt Lake’s people (priesthood-leadership) encourages Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons) to revere (worship; idolize; pay tribute to; be afraid of; bend-the-knee before) a bunch of angry  (hostile; cross; indignant) prophets and apostles,  who are at-the-reins ( in the drivers seat; on the throne; at the helm; at the wheel) of Mormon power in Salt Lake City. They are stripping-off  (plundering; appropriating; stealing; robbing) the “robes” (mantles; roles)  of royalty from of Israel’s people while they cause Israel’s people to disregard their covenantal obligations  to Jehovah. They habituate Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons)  to assist  Salt Lake as it divests (strips; plunders) Israel’s people of their robe (mantle calling; duty; mission) then they deliver them  (relinquish-them ; handing them over; surrender-them) into the hands (power; authority;  control; influence) of Salt Lake’s prophets,  upon (after;  consequent to)  their baptism in the Mormon church.

beat their breasts
To beat one’s breasts means: to strike one’s fisst against one’s chest as an expression of sorrow, anger, or woe. Hardly anyone actually beats their breast any more, but the expression survives as a poetic expression that describes any act of public bewailing. 

12. Salt Lake’ top priesthood leaders are “Beating-their-Breasts” (striking their  fists against their chests as an expression of sorrow, anger, or woe. Hardly anyone actually beats their breast any more, but the expression survives as a poetic expression that describes any act of public bewailing) and “tear-out-their-hair” (express tearful dramatic concern and agitation ) over their grounds (rationale; pretext; excuse) and about their priestly-expertise (prowess; expert skill in priestcraft) and especially about their coveted  (highly-sought-after-without-regard for the rights of others) wrongly-desired) authority (dominion; supremacy ; sovereignty; authority; jurisdiction) over Israelite (rank and file Mormon) vines (lineages; families; dynasties; bloodlines) which are highly fruitful (profitable; profit-making; bankable; lucrative) to the “Corporation of the President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints”

FYI -” What we think of as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints operates today as a mere trademark of the corporation that owns the name to it. The actual church that used to go by that name, and which claims Jesus Christ as its head, does not exist today in any legally recognized form.  The no longer even exists…at all”.

reveling
Salt Lake’s top-church leaders and their wives are reveling and celebrating because of the plight (predicament; quandry; trouble; bind) that Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons ) are in.

13. Indeed (if truth be told),  for many years, loathsome thorns (Salt Lake’s  appointments as Israel’s royalty) have been rising-up (ascending; arising) higher than (greater in power and authority than) the daughters (branches; clans) of Israel.  They are reveling (rejoicing; partying; celebrating) in Salt Lake (at Mormon Church Headquarters)  over the plight (troubles; predicaments; dilemmas; difficulties) of Jehovah’s sheep (followers; lambs).

.

.

14. Indeed (as a matter of fact) the men occupying the citadel (Salt Lake headquarters) have totally forsaken (deserted) their posts as “watchers” (lookouts) on behalf of Israel’s people . They are neglecting  (disregarding; discounting; turning a blind eye to;  paying no attention to) the tower (position with the best view;  elevated-station guarded by a “watch” for danger or trouble) but rather,  they  are looking-forward (expecting;  anticipating) to  be surrounded (bound; encompassed) by a profligate (depraved; lascivious; reprobate) band (gang; company) of confederates (accomplices; partners-in-crime; co-conspirators; collaborators) forever while delighting in the “whiteness” (appearance-of-righteousness) seen among wild-asses (donkeys; jack-asses),  which “whiteness”  (appearance-of-righteousness ) is cheerfully sold (bought and sold) at the Mormon-sanctuaries (Mormon-temples) presided over by Mormon high-priests who’ve been forsaken (abandoned; deserted) by the God of Israel.

wasteland
Salt Lake’s high-priests are waiting for  “The Spirit” of “Ownership-Over-Everyone-Else; Lordship-Over-Everyone-Else; Mastery-Over-Everyone-Else”, i.e.  Baal  (the God of Salt Lake’s priesthood leadership) , to be poured out upon everyone and everything so their miserable “No-Mans-Land”  (inhospitable-kingdom; uninhabitable-kingdom; confusion; uncultivated-wasteland; No-man’s land) will be magically transformed into a “Bed of Roses” (but…….Don’t hold your breath!”).  

15. They are waiting-around for  “The Spirit” of “Ownership; Lordship ; Mastery-Over-Everyone-Else”, i.e.  Baal  (the only God of Salt Lake’s priesthood leadership) , to be poured out upon everyone and everything and their miserable wilderness (inhospitable-kingdom; uninhabitable-kingdom; confusion; uncultivated-wasteland; No-man’s land) to be magically transformed into a “Bed of Roses” (Don’t hold your breath!”) and that “Bed-of-Roses” will morph into a fruitful-field (“goldmine”; potentially prifitable chunk of real estate),  or so they think (hope; reckon). But not one of them is holding his breath in anticipation!

wilderness
Though they are unaware……Salt Lake’s priesthood leaders have unwittingly prepared for themselves and their families,   an eternal-state of emptiness and bewilderment.

16. Actrually, …..though they are unaware……they’ve actually  prepared  for themselves  and their families…. a lonely and desolate  wilderness and an eternal  state of utter bewilderment (emptiness) because of the God of Israel’s punishment (judgment; condemnation),  while  “Righteousness” (those of good-character; righteousness’s rightful possessors) will dwell in a fertile-field (“Bed-of-Roses”; fruitful-situations; fruitful-circumstance) that is fed and secured forever.

.

 

righteousness
Like Abraham before them,  Israel’s people (rank and file Mormons)  will become my ministers (ambassadors; representatives; envoys) of “Righteousness”(goodness; integrity; nobility) and peace ( wholeness; friendship; harmony),  pointing  (directing attention) to tranquility (serenity; rest; peace) and confidence (God’s loving-assurance) throughout eternity.

17. They (Israel’s people; rank and file Mormons) are possessors of  (have wrought)  “righteousness” (what-is-right; the birthright; what is good), so they will be my ministers (ambassadors; representatives; envoys) of “Righteousness”(what is right; what is true) and of peace (friendship; harmony) pointing the way (showing-the-way)  to tranquility (serenity; rest; peace) and confidence (God’s loving-assurance) throughout eternity.

“Peaceful Habitations for Israel’s people”

18. My people (Israel’s descendants; Israel’s successors) will reign (wear-the-crown) at rest (pleasantly; in-comfort; well; warmly) ,  in “peaceful-habitations” (happy-homes; quiet-residences; peaceful-societies; tranquil-circumstances) along with  others who have received a “sure-hope” (divine assurance) for themselves in an undisturbed (unmolested; irrevocable)  place of eternal rest (repose).

hai lstorm
Hail-stones (pellets of frozen rain) will come-forth (rain-down; come-down-from heaven;  appear; arrive; come into view) to level  (crush; trample; break-down; overpower) the tangled-thickets  of Salt Lake’s family-trees. 

19. But, hailstones (pellets of frozen rain) will come-forth (rain-down; come-down-from heaven;  appear; arrive; come into view) to level  (crush; asuash; trample; break; overpower) the tangled-thickets  of Salt Lake’s family-trees and flatten their City.

calumniate
Calumniating Jesus – He was slandered; bad-mouthed and insulted, and Pilate knew how much the Jews (the Jewish high-priests) hated Jesus!

20. The God of Israel blesses all of you (all of Israel’s people; all rank and file Mormons) far and above (exceeding; especially; surmounting; overtaking; overshadowing) everyone (anyone) in the West (LDS Church headquarters in Salt Lake City) because they have divorced (disunited; severed) themselves from Jehovah in order to  calumniate (slander; bad-mouth;insult; libel; defame; bear false tales about; revile) My (Jehovah’s)  princes and princesses (royalty;  rulers; Israelites who possess God’s authority) so they can promote (advance; introduce; recommend; advocate; boost; support) Canaanite (subjugation) worship.
