The III Percent Mission Statement: Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will
within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. ~ Thomas Jefferson
Brother I agree with you on most things, and don't get me wrong I like DMB, but their version of Watchtower was horrible! :P Just my opinion of course, all tastes are different. But for me, it just did not have the same vibe. If that makes any sense
De gustibus non est disputandum;)I like the fact that the white boy - spastically flailing as he does - leaves it all on the stage. He has energy.
The burden of the desert of the sea. As whirlwinds come from the south, it cometh from the desert from a terrible land.A grievous vision is told me: he that is unfaithful dealeth unfaithfully: and he that is a spoiler, spoileth. Go up, O Elam, besiege, O Mede: I have made all the mourning thereof to cease.Therefore are my loins filled with pain, anguish hath taken hold of me, as the anguish of a woman in labour: I fell down at the hearing of it, I was troubled at the seeing of it.My heart failed, darkness amazed me: Babylon my beloved is become a wonder to me.Prepare the table, behold in the watchtower them that eat and drink: arise, ye princes, take up the shield.For thus hath the Lord said to me: Go, and set a watchman: and whatsoever he shall see, let him tell, And he saw a chariot with two horsemen, a rider upon an ass, and a rider upon a camel: and he beheld them diligently with much heed.And a lion cried out: I am upon the watchtower of the LORD, standing continually by day: and I am upon my ward, standing whole nights. Behold this man cometh, the rider upon the chariot with two horsemen, and he answered, and said: Babylon is fallen, she is fallen, and all the graven gods thereof are broken unto the ground.O my thrashing and the children of my door, that which I have heard of the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, I have declared unto you. The burden of Duma calleth to me out of Seir: Watchman, what of the night? Watchman, what of the night?The watchman said: The morning cometh, and also the night: if you seek, seek: return, come (to me). The burden in Arabia. In the forest at evening you shall sleep, in the paths of Dedanim.Meeting the thirsty bring him water, you that inhabit the land of the south, meet with bread him that fleeth.For they are fled from before the swords, from the sword which hung over them, from the bent bow, from the face of a grievous battle.For thus saith the Lord to me: Within a year, according to the years of a hireling, all the glory of Kedar shall be taken away. And the residue of the number of strong archers of the children of Kedar shall be diminished: for the Lord the God of Israel hath spoken it. The burden of the valley of vision. What aileth thee also, that thou too art wholly gone up to the housetops?Full of clamour, a populous city, a joyous city: thy slain are not slain by the sword, nor dead in battle.All the princes are fled together, and are bound hard: all that were found, are bound together, they are fled far off.Therefore have I said: Depart from me, I will weep bitterly: labour not to comfort me, for the devastation of the daughter of my people.For it is a day of slaughter and of treading down, and of weeping to the Lord the God of hosts in the valley of vision, searching the wall, and magnificent upon the mountain.And Elam took the quiver, the chariot of the horseman, and the shield was taken down from the wall.And thy choice valleys shall be full of chariots, and the horseman shall place themselves in the gate.And the covering of Juda shall be discovered, and thou shalt see in that day the armory of the house of the forest.And you shall see the breaches of the city of David, that they are many: and you have gathered together the waters of the lower pool,And have numbered the houses of Jerusalem, and broken down houses to fortify the wall.And you made a ditch between the two walls for the water of the old pool: and you have not looked up to the maker thereof, nor regarded him even at a distance, that wrought it long ago.And the Lord, the God of hosts, in that day shall call to weeping, and to mourning, to baldness, and to girding with sackcloth:And behold joy and gladness, killing calves, and slaying rams, eating flesh, and drinking wine: Let us eat and drink; for to morrow we shall die. WE HAVE BEEN WARNED
