New Testament Inspired: Beautiful Quaker Words: James Nayler’s Deathbed Testimony

There is a spirit which I feel that delights to do no evil, nor to revenge any wrong, but delights to endure all things, in hope to enjoy its own in the end. Its hope is to outlive all wrath and contention, and to weary out all exaltation and cruelty, or whatever is of a nature contrary to itself. It sees to the end of all temptations. As it bears no evil in itself, so it conceives none in…

Daily Old Testament: Isaiah 66 and New Testament Inspired Words of James Nayler - Nayler Sonnet 15 by K. Boulding

Isaiah 66 – “With heaven my throne and earth my footstool, what house could you build me, what place could you make for my rest? All of this was made by my hand” (66:2). Still God’s eyes are “drawn to the man of humbled and contrite spirit” (66:2). People sacrifice all kinds of things to their idols rather than respond to God’s love. Jerusalem should rejoice, for now “towards her I send flowing peace, like a river” (66:12). She shall be comforted.

 

There is a constant…

Daily Old Testament: Isaiah 65 and New Testament Inspired Words of James Nayler - Nayler Sonnet 14 by K. Boulding

Isaiah 65 – The last chapters are an apocalyptic vision – post-exilic or even later in time. The Lord has been ready to help those who went astray, but no one ever asked for help. “I was ready to be found, but no one was looking for me” (65:1). All day long the people threw dirt into God’s “face” – burning incense of pagan altars, breaking the laws God gave to their ancestors. They will suffer punishment at God’s hands “both for their own sins and for those of their ancestors”…

Daily Old Testament: Isaiah 64 and New Testament Inspired Words of James Nayler - Nayler Sonnet 13 by K. Boulding

 

Isaiah 64 - “Oh, that you would tear the heavens open and come down—at your Presence the mountains would melt” (64:1).

 

“No ear has heard, no eye has seen any god but you act like this for those who trust him. You guide those who act with integrity and keep your ways in mind” (64:4-5). “And yet, Yahweh, you are our Father; we the clay, you the potter, we are all the work of your hand” (64:7-8).

 

All we ever had from you is destroyed – Zion,…

Daily Old Testament: Isaiah 63 and New Testament Inspired Words of James Nayler - Nayler Sonnet 12 by K. Boulding

Isaiah 63 – A poem written in the form of a dialogue between the prophet and Yahweh, depicted here as one who treads grapes with his garments stained red. The prophet asks why his garments are red. Yahweh responds he has “trodden the winepress alone” (63:3) with not one man with Him. In His anger he has trampled them, an anger that supported Him in His loneliness. The prophet sings of Yahweh’s goodness in saving His people. “It was neither messenger nor angel but his Presence…

Daily Old Testament: Isaiah 62 and New Testament Inspired Words of James Nayler - Nayler Sonnet 11 by K. Boulding

Isaiah 62 – I, the prophet, will not grow weary of Jerusalem until her “integrity shines out like the dawn” (62:1).

 

“The nations will see your righteousness. World leaders will be blinded by your glory. . . The Lord will hold you in his hand for all to see—a splendid crown in the hand of God” (62:2-3).

 

She will be like a crown in God’s hand. No longer “forsaken” or “abandoned”, she will be the Lord’s delight, wedded to Him like a bride. “[O]n your…

Daily Old Testament: Isaiah 61 and New Testament Inspired Words of James Nayler - Nayler Sonnet 10 by K. Boulding

Isaiah 61 – The spirit of the Lord has been poured out on the prophet to “bring good news to the poor, to bind up hearts that are broken; to proclaim liberty to captives, freedom to those in prison” (61:1).

 

I exult in Yahweh “for he has clothed me in the garments of salvation, he has wrapped me in the cloak of integrity . . . .as the earth makes fresh things grow, as a garden makes seeds spring up, so will the Lord Yahweh make both integrity and praise spring up in the…

Daily Old Testament: Isaiah 60 and New Testament Inspired Words of James Nayler - Nayler Sonnet 9 by K. Boulding

Isaiah 60 – A poem meant to be read with 62 as well, probably composed by the author of the Book of Consolation [40-55 according to Jerusalem Bible note]. “[T]hough night still covers the earth and darkness the peoples . . . the glory of Yahweh is rising. . .” (60:1-2).

 

Kings will come to you and people from everywhere. A note says that these words were seen as applying to the Magi coming to Jesus’ birthplace. The wealth of the nations shall flow into the city…

Daily Old Testament: Isaiah 59 and New Testament Inspired Words of James Nayler - Nayler Sonnet 8 by K. Boulding

Isaiah 59 – The iniquities of man create a gulf between man and God. When we sin, God veils his face from us.

 

Relying on idols is relying on “nothingness” (59:4). “We looked for light and all is darkness, for brightness and we walk in the dark” (59:9). Our “faults are present to our minds, and we know our iniquities: rebellion and denial of Yahweh” (59:12).

 

The following translation is different from what I remember – “He put integrity on like a…

Daily Old Testament: Isaiah 58 and New Testament Inspired Words of James Nayler - Nayler Sonnet 7 by K. Boulding

Isaiah 58 – The prophet must tell of the people’s faults. If you do not respect the days of fasting, but do business all day, you cannot expect to please the Lord. If you do these things and only do them superficially, you cannot please the Lord.

 

What the Lord wants is for you “to break unjust fetters and undo the thongs of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free . . .share your bread with the hungry, and shelter the homeless poor . . .clothe the man you see to be…
