Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍1 

  1. THE VISION OF ISAIAH the son of Amoz, which he saw con­cern­ing Ju­dah and Je­ru­sa­lem in the days of Uz-‍zi‍′‍-‍ah, Jo‍′‍-‍tham, Ahaz, and Hez-‍e-‍ki‍′‍-‍ah, (all) kings of Judah.
  2. Hear, O‍ ‍heav­ens, and give ear, O‍ ‍earth: for the ⟨Lord⟩ hath spo­ken, I have nour­ished and brought up chil­dren, and they have re­belled against me.
  3. The ox know­eth his own­er, and the ass his mas­ters crib: but Is­ra­el doth not know, my peo­ple doth not consider.
  4. Ah sin­ful na­tion, a peo­ple lad­en with iniquity, a seed of evil­do­ers, chil­dren that are cor­rupt­ers: they have for­sak­en the ⟨Lord⟩, they have pro­voked the Holy One of Is­ra­el un­to an­ger, they are gone away backward.
  5. Why should ye be strick­en any more? ye will re­volt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.
  6. From the sole of the foot even un­to the head there is no sound­ness in it; but wounds, and bruis­es, and pu­tri­fy­ing sores: they have not been closed, nei­ther bound up, nei­ther mol­li­fied with ointment.
  7. Your coun­try is‍ ‍des­o­late, your cit­ies are burned with fire: your land, stran­gers de­vour it in your pres­ence, and it is‍ ‍des­o­late, as over­thrown by strangers.
  8. And the daugh­ter of Zion is left as a‍ ‍cot­tage in a‍ ‍vine­yard, as a lodge in a gar­den of cu­cum­bers, as a be­sieged city.
  9. Except the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts had left un­to us a‍ ‍very small rem­nant, we should have been as Sod­om, and we should have been like un­to Go-‍mor‍′‍-‍rah.
  10. Hear the word of the ⟨Lord⟩, ye rul­ers of Sod­om; give ear un­to the law of our ⟨God⟩, ye peo­ple of Go-‍mor‍′‍-‍rah.
  11. To what pur­pose is the mul­ti­tude of your sac­ri­fic­es un­to me? sai­th the ⟨Lord⟩: I am full of the burnt of­fer­ings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I de­light not in the blood of bull­ocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.
  12. When ye come to ap­pear be­fore me who hath re­quired this at your hand, to tread my courts?
  13. Bring no more vain obla­tions; in­cense is an abom­i­na­tion un­to me; the new moons and sab­baths, the call­ing of as­sem­blies, I can­not away with; it is‍ ‍iniquity, even the sol­emn meeting.
  14. Your new moons and your ap­point­ed feasts my soul hat­eth: they are a trou­ble un­to me; I am weary to bear them.
  15. And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make ma­ny pray­ers, I will not hear: your hands are full of‍ ‍blood.
  16. Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your do­ings from be­fore mine eyes; cease to do evil;
  17. Learn to do well; seek judg­ment, re­lieve the op­pressed, judge (for)‍ ‍the fa­ther­less, plead for the widow.
  18. Come now, and let us rea­son to­geth­er, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩: though your sins be as scar­let, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crim­son, they shall be as wool.
  19. If ye be will­ing and obe­di­ent, ye shall eat the good of the land:
  20. But if ye re­fuse and re­bel, ye shall be de­voured with the sword: for the mouth of the ⟨Lord⟩ hath spo­ken it.
  21. How is the faith­ful city be­come an har­lot! it was full of judg­ment; righ­teous­ness lodged in it; but now murderers.
  22. Thy sil­ver is be­come dross, thy wine mixed with water:
  23. Thy princ­es are re­bel­lious, and com­pan­ions of thieves: ev­ery one lov­eth gifts, and fol­low­eth af­ter re­wards: they judge not (for)‍ ‍the fa­ther­less, nei­ther doth the cause of the wid­ow come un­to them.
  24. Therefore sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩, the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts, the migh­ty One of Is­ra­el, Ah, I will ease me of mine ad­ver­sar­ies, and avenge me of mine enemies:
  25. And I will turn my hand up­on thee, and pure­ly purge away thy dross, and take away all thy tin:
  26. And I will re­store thy judg­es as at the first, and thy coun­sel­lors as at the be­gin­ning: af­ter­ward thou shalt be called, The city of‍ ‍righ­teous­ness, the faith­ful city.
  27. Zion shall be re­deemed with judg­ment, and her con­verts with righ­teous­ness.
  28. And the de­struc­tion of the trans­gres­sors and of the sin­ners shall be to­geth­er, and they that for­sake the ⟨Lord⟩ shall be consumed.
  29. For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which ye have de­sired, and ye shall be con­found­ed for the gar­dens that ye have chosen.
  30. For ye shall be as an oak whose leaf fad­eth, and as a gar­den that hath no‍ ‍water.
  31. And the strong shall be as tow, and the mak­er of it as a spark, and they shall both burn to­geth­er, and none shall quench them.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍2 
  1. THE WORD THAT ISAIAH the son of Amoz saw con­cern­ing Ju­dah and Jerusalem.
  2. And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the moun­tain of the ⟨Lords⟩ house shall be es­tab­lished in the top of the moun­tains, and shall be ex­alt­ed above the hills; and all na­tions shall flow un­to it.
  3. And ma­ny peo­ple shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the moun­tain of the ⟨Lord⟩, to the house of the ⟨God⟩ of Ja­cob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ from Jerusalem.
  4. And he shall judge among the na­tions, and shall re­buke ma­ny peo­ple: and they shall beat their swords in­to plow­shares, and their spears in­to prun­ing­hooks: na­tion shall not lift up sword against na­tion, nei­ther shall they learn war any‍ ‍more.
  5. O‍ ‍house of Ja­cob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the ⟨Lord⟩.
  6. Therefore thou hast for­sak­en thy peo­ple the house of Ja­cob, be­cause they be re­plen­ished from the east, and are sooth­say­ers like the Phi-‍lis‍′‍-‍tines, and they please them­selves in the chil­dren of strangers.
  7. Their land al­so is full of sil­ver and gold, nei­ther is there any end of their treas­ures; their land is al­so full of hors­es, nei­ther is there any end of their chariots:
  8. Their land al­so is full of idols; they wor­ship the work of their own hands, that which their own fin­gers have made:
  9. And the mean man bow­eth down, and the great man hum­bleth him­self: there­fore for­give them not. (See Also: Isaiah 44:9-20)
  10. Enter in­to the rock, and hide thee in the dust, for fear of the ⟨Lord⟩, and for the glo­ry of his majesty.
  11. The lof­ty looks of man shall be hum­bled, and the haugh­ti­ness of men shall be bowed down, and the ⟨Lord⟩ alone shall be ex­alt­ed in that day.
  12. For the day of the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts shall be up­on ev­ery one that is lift­ed up; and he shall be brought low:
  13. And up­on all the ce­dars of Leb‍′‍-‍a-‍non, that are high and lift­ed up, and up­on all the oaks of Ba‍′‍-‍shan,
  14. And up­on all the high moun­tains, and up­on all the hills that are lift­ed up,
  15. And up­on ev­ery high tow­er, and up­on ev­ery fenced wall,
  16. And up­on all the ships of Tar‍′‍-‍shish, and up­on all pleas­ant pictures.
  17. And the loft­i­ness of man shall be bowed down, and the haugh­ti­ness of men shall be made low: and the ⟨Lord⟩ alone shall be ex­alt­ed in that day.
  18. And the idols he shall ut­ter­ly‍ ‍abolish.
  19. And they shall go in­to the holes of the rocks, and in­to the caves of the earth, for fear of the ⟨Lord⟩, and for the glo­ry of his maj­es­ty, when he aris­eth to shake ter­rib­ly the earth.
  20. In that day a man shall cast his idols of sil­ver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for him­self to wor­ship, to the moles and to the bats;
  21. To go in­to the clefts of the rocks, and in­to the tops of the rag­ged rocks, for fear of the ⟨Lord⟩, and for the glo­ry of his maj­es­ty, when he aris­eth to shake ter­rib­ly the earth.
  22. Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nos­trils: for where­in is he to be ac­count­ed of?
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍3 
  1. FOR, BE­HOLD, THE⟨Lord⟩, the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts, doth take away from Je­ru­sa­lem and from Ju­dah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water,
  2. The migh­ty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the proph­et, and the pru­dent, and the ancient.
  3. The cap­tain of fif­ty, and the hon­our­a­ble man, and the coun­sel­lor, and the cun­ning ar­tif­i­cer, and the el­o­quent orator.
  4. And I will give chil­dren to be their princ­es, and babes shall rule over them.
  5. And the peo­ple shall be op­pressed, ev­ery one by an­oth­er, and ev­ery one by his neigh­bour: the child shall be­have him­self proud­ly against the an­cient, and the base against the honourable.
  6. When a man shall take hold of his broth­er of the house of his fa­ther, say­ing, Thou hast cloth­ing, be thou our rul­er, and let this ruin be un­der thy hand:
  7. In that day shall he swear, say­ing, I will not be an heal­er; for in my house is nei­ther bread nor cloth­ing: make me not a rul­er of the people.
  8. For Je­ru­sa­lem is ruined, and Ju­dah is fall­en: be­cause their tongue and their do­ings are against the ⟨Lord⟩, to pro­voke the eyes of his glory.
  9. The shew of their coun­ten­ance doth wit­ness against them; and they de­clare their sin as Sod­om, they hide it not.
  10. Say ye to‍ ‍the righ­teous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.
  11. Woe un­to the wick­ed! it shall be ill with him: for the re­ward of his hands shall be giv­en him.
  12. As for my peo­ple, chil­dren are their op­pres­sors, and wom­en rule over them. O‍ ‍my peo­ple, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and de­stroy the way of thy‍ ‍paths.
  13. The ⟨Lord⟩ stand­eth up to plead, and stand­eth to judge the people.
  14. The ⟨Lord⟩ will en­ter in­to judg­ment with the an­cients of his peo­ple, and the princ­es there­of: for ye have eat­en up the vine­yard; the spoil of the poor is in your houses.
  15. What mean ye that ye beat my peo­ple to piec­es, and grind the fac­es of the poor? sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩ of hosts.
  16. Moreover the ⟨Lord⟩ sa­ith, Be­cause the daugh­ters of Zion are haugh­ty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wan­ton eyes, walk­ing and minc­ing as they go, and mak­ing a tin­kling with (an­klets on)‍ ‍their feet:
  17. There­fore the ⟨Lord⟩ will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daugh­ters of Zion, and the ⟨Lord⟩ will dis­cov­er their se­cret parts.
  18. In that day the ⟨Lord⟩ will take away the brav­ery of theirtin­kling or­na­mentsabout their feet, and theircauls, and their round tires like the moon,
  19. The chains, and the brace­lets, and the mufflers,
  20. The bon­nets, and the or­na­ments of the legs, and the head­bands, and the tab­lets, and the earrings,
  21. The rings, and nose jewels,
  22. The change­a­ble suits of ap­par­el, and the man­tles, and the wim­ples, and the crisp­ing pins,
  23. The glass­es, and the fine lin­en, and the hoods, and the‍ ‍vails.
  24. And it shall come to pass, that in­stead of sweet smell there shall be stink; and in­stead of a gir­dle a rent; and in­stead of well set hair bald­ness; and in­stead of a stom­acher a gird­ing of sack­cloth; andburn­ing in­stead of beauty.
  25. Thy men shall fall by the sword, and thy migh­ty in the‍ ‍war.
  26. And her gates shall la­ment and mourn; and she be­ingdes­o­late shall sit up­on the ground.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍4 
  1. AND IN THAT DAYsev­en wom­en shall take hold of one man, say­ing, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own ap­par­el: on­ly let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach.
  2. In that day shall the branch of the ⟨Lord⟩ be beau­ti­ful and glo­ri­ous, and the fruit of the earth shall be ex­cel­lent and come­ly for them that are es­caped of Israel.
  3. And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that re­main­eth in Je­ru­sa­lem, shall be called holy, even ev­ery one that is writ­ten among the liv­ing in Jerusalem:
  4. When the ⟨Lord⟩ shall have washed away the filth of the daugh­ters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Je­ru­sa­lem from the midst there­of by the spir­it of judg­ment, and by the spir­it of burning.
  5. And the ⟨Lord⟩ will create up­on ev­ery dwell­ing place of mount Zion, and up­on her as­sem­blies, a cloud and smoke by‍ ‍day, and the shin­ing of a flam­ing fire by‍ ‍night: for up­on all the glo­ry shall be a defence.
  6. And there shall be a tab­er­na­cle for a shad­ow in the day­time from the heat, and for a place of ref­uge, and for a covert from storm and from rain.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍5 
  1. NOW WILL I SING to my well­be­lov­ed a song of my be­lov­ed touch­ing his vine­yard. My well­be­lov­ed hath a vine­yard in a very fruit­ful hill:
  2. And he fenced it, and gath­ered out the stones there­of, and plant­ed it with the choic­est vine, and built a tow­er in the midst of it, and al­so made a wine­press there­in: and he looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes.
  3. And now, O‍ ‍in­hab­it­ants of Je­ru­sa­lem, and men of Ju­dah, judge, I pray you, be­twixt me and my‍ ‍vineyard.
  4. What could have been done more to my vine­yard, that I have not done in it? where­fore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild grapes?
  5. And now go to; I will tell you what I will do to my vine­yard: I will take away the hedge there­of, and it shall be eat­en up; and break down the wall there­of, and it shall be trod­den down:
  6. And I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but there shall come up briers and thorns: I will al­so com­mand the clouds that they rain no rain up­on it.
  7. For the vine­yard of the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts is the house of Is­ra­el, and the men of Ju­dah his pleas­ant plant: and he looked for judg­ment, but be­hold op­pres­sion; for‍ ‍righ­teous­ness, but be­hold a cry.
  8. Woe un­to them that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there be no place (in­be­tween), that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth!
  9. In mine ears said the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts, Of a truth ma­ny hous­es shall be des­o­late,even great and fair, with­out inhabitant.
  10. Yea, ten acres of vine­yard shall yield one bath, and the seed of an‍ ‍ho­mer shall yield an e‍′‍-‍phah.
  11. Woe un­to them that rise up ear­ly in the morn­ing, that they may fol­low strong drink; that con­tin­ue un­til night, till wine in­flame them!
  12. And the harp, and the viol, the tab­ret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they re­gard not the work of the ⟨Lord⟩, nei­ther con­sid­er the op­er­a­tion of his hands.
  13. Therefore my peo­ple are gone in­to cap­tiv­i­ty, be­cause they have no knowl­edge: and their hon­our­a­ble men are fam­ished, and their mul­ti­tude dried up with thirst.
  14. Therefore hell hath en­larged her­self, and opened her mouth with­out meas­ure: and their glo­ry, and their mul­ti­tude, and their pomp, and he that re­joic­eth, shall des­cend in­to it.
  15. And the mean man shall be brought down, and the migh­ty man shall be hum­bled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled:
  16. But the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts shall be ex­alt­ed in judg­ment, and ⟨God⟩ that is holy shall be sanc­ti­fied in‍ ‍righteousness.
  17. Then shall the lambs feed af­ter their man­ner, and the waste plac­es of the fat ones shall stran­gers eat.
  18. Woe un­to them that draw in­iq­ui­ty with cords of van­i­ty, and sin as it were with a cart rope:
  19. That say, Let him make speed, and has­ten his work, that we may see it: and let the coun­sel of the Holy One of Is­ra­el draw nigh and come, that we may know it!
  20. ⟨•Woe un­to them that call evil good, and good evil; that put dark­ness for light, and light for dark­ness; that put bit­ter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
  21. Woe un­to them that are wise in their own eyes, and pru­dent in their own sight!•⟩
  22. Woe un­to them that are migh­ty to drink wine, and men of strength to min­gle strong drink:
  23. Which jus­ti­fy the wick­ed for re­ward, and take away the righ­teous­ness of‍ ‍the righ­teous from him!
  24. Therefore as the fire de­vour­eth the stub­ble, and the flame con­sum­eth the chaff, so their root shall be as rot­ten­ness, and their blos­som shall go up as dust: be­cause they have cast away the law of the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts, and de­spised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
  25. Therefore is the an­ger of the ⟨Lord⟩ kin­dled against his peo­ple, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smit­ten them: and the hills did trem­ble, and their car­cas­es were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his an­ger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
  26. And he will lift up an en­sign to the na­tions from far, and will hiss un­to them from the end of the earth: and, be­hold, they shall come with speed swiftly:
  27. None shall be weary nor stum­ble among them; none shall slum­ber nor sleep; nei­ther shall the gir­dle of their loins be loosed, nor the latch­et of their shoes be broken:
  28. Whose ar­rows are sharp, and all their bows bent, their hors­es’ hoofs shall be count­ed like flint, and their wheels like a whirlwind:
  29. Their roar­ing shall be like a li­on, they shall roar like young li­ons: yea, they shall roar, and lay hold of the prey, and shall car­ry it away(in)‍ ‍safe­(ty), and none shall de­liv­er it.
  30. And in that day they shall roar against them like the roar­ing of the sea: and if one look un­to the land, be­hold dark­ness and sor­row, and the light is dark­ened in the (first and sec­ond) heav­ens thereof.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍6 
  1. IN THE YEAR THAT king Uz-‍zi‍′‍-‍ah died ⟨•I saw al­so the ⟨Lord⟩ sit­ting up­on a throne, high and lift­ed up, and his train filled the temple.
  2. Above it stood the ser‍′‍-‍a-‍phims: each one had six wings; with twain he cov­ered his face, and with twain he cov­ered his feet, and with twain he did fly.
  3. And one cried un­to an­oth­er, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
  4. And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.•⟩
  5. Then said I, Woe is‍ ‍(up­on) me! for I am un­done; be­cause I am a man of un­clean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a peo­ple of un­clean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts.
  6. Then flew one of the ser‍′‍-‍a-‍phims un­to me, hav­ing a live coal in his hand, which he had tak­en with the tongs from off the (holy)‍ ‍altar:
  7. And he laid it up­on my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine in­iq­ui­ty is tak­en away, and thy sin purged.
  8. Also I heard the voice of the ⟨Lord⟩, say­ing, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.
  9. And he said, Go, and tell this peo­ple, Hear ye in­deed, but un­der­stand not; and see ye in­deed, but per­ceive not.
  10. Make the heart of this peo­ple fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and un­der­stand with their heart, and con­vert, and be healed (while still in rebellion).
  11. Then said I, ⟨Lord⟩, how long? And he an­swered, Un­til the cit­ies be wast­ed with­out in­hab­it­ant, and the hous­es with­out man, and the land be ut­ter­ly‍ ‍desolate,
  12. And the ⟨Lord⟩ have re­moved men far away, and there be a great for­sak­ing in the midst of the land.
  13. But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall re­turn, and shall be eat­en: as a‍ ‍teil tree, and as an oak, whose sub­stance‍ ‍is‍ ‍in‍ ‍them, when they casttheir leaves: so the holy seed shall be the sub­stance‍ ‍thereof.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍7 
  1. AND IT CAME TO pass in the days of Ahaz the son of Jo‍′‍-‍tham, the son of Uz-‍zi‍′‍-‍ah, the king of Ju­dah, that Re‍′‍-‍zin the king of Syr­ia, and Pe‍′‍-‍kah the son of Rem-‍a-‍li‍′‍-‍ah, king of Is­ra­el, went up to­ward Je­ru­sa­lem to war against it, but could not pre­vail against it.
  2. And it was told the house of David, say­ing, Syr­ia is‍ ‍con­fed­er­ate with E‍′‍-‍phra-‍im. And his heart was moved, and the heart of his peo­ple as the trees of the wood are moved with the wind.
  3. Then said the ⟨Lord⟩ un­to Isa­iah, Go forth now to meet Ahaz, thou, and She‍′‍-‍ar–‍jash‍′‍-‍ub thy son, at the end of the con­du­it of the up­per pool in the high­way of the full­ers field;
  4. And say un­to him, Take heed, and be quiet; fear not, nei­ther be faint­heart­ed for the two tails of these smok­ing fire­brands, for the fierce an­ger of Re‍′‍-‍zin with Syr­ia, and of the son of Rem-‍a-‍li‍′‍-‍ah.
  5. Because Syr­ia, E‍′‍-‍phra-‍im, and the son of Rem-‍a-‍li‍′‍-‍ah, have tak­en evil coun­sel against thee, saying,
  6. Let us go up against Ju­dah, and vex it, and let us make a breach there­in for us, and set a king in the midst of it, even the son of Ta‍′‍-‍be-‍al:
  7. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩; It shall not stand, nei­ther shall it come to pass.
  8. For the head of Syr­ia is Da­mas­cus, and the head of Da­mas­cus is Re‍′‍-‍zin; and with­in three­score and five years shall E‍′‍-‍phra-‍im be bro­ken, that it be not a people.
  9. And the head of E‍′‍-‍phra-‍im is Sa-‍ma‍′‍-‍ri-‍a, and the head of Sa-‍ma‍′‍-‍ri-‍a is Rem-‍a-‍li‍′‍-‍ahs son. If ye will not be­lieve, sure­ly ye shall not be established.
  10. Moreover the ⟨Lord⟩ spake again un­to Ahaz, saying,
  11. Ask thee a sign of the ⟨Lord⟩ thy ⟨God⟩; ask it ei­ther in the depth, or in the height above.
  12. But Ahaz said, I will not ask, nei­ther will I‍ ‍tempt the ⟨Lord⟩.
  13. And he said, Hear ye now, O‍ ‍house of David; Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will ye weary my ⟨God⟩ also?
  14. Therefore the ⟨Lord⟩ him­self shall give you a sign; Be­hold, a vir­gin shall con­ceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Im-‍man‍′‍-‍u-‍el.
  15. Butter and hon­ey shall he eat, that he may know to re­fuse evil, and choose the good.•⟩
  16. For be­fore the child shall know to re­fuse the evil, and choose the good, the land that thou ab­hor­rest shall be for­sak­en of both her kings.
  17. The ⟨Lord⟩ shall bring up­on thee, and up­on thy peo­ple, and up­on thy fa­thers house, days that have not come, from the day that E‍′‍-‍phra-‍im depart­ed from Ju­dah; even the king of Assyria.
  18. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the ⟨Lord⟩ shall hiss for the fly that is in the ut­ter­most part of the riv­ers of Egypt, and for the bee that is in the land of Assyria.
  19. And they shall come, and shall rest all of them in the des­o­late val­leys, and in the holes of the rocks, and up­on all thorns, and up­on all bushes.
  20. In the same day shall the ⟨Lord⟩ shave with a ra­zor (he) that is hired, name­ly, by them be­yond the (Eu-‍phra‍′‍-‍tes) riv­er, by the king of As­syr­ia, the head, and the hair of the feet: and it shall al­so con­sume the beard.
  21. And it shall come to pass in that day, that a man shall nour­ish a young cow, and two sheep;
  22. And it shall come to pass, for the abun­dance of milk that they shall give he shall eat but­ter: for but­ter and hon­ey shall ev­ery one eat that is left in the land.
  23. And it shall come to pass in that day, that ev­ery place shall be, where there were a thou­sand vines at a‍ ‍thou­sand sil­ver­lings, it shall even be for briers and thorns.
  24. With ar­rows and with bows shall men come thith­er; be­cause all the land shall be­come bri­ers and thorns.
  25. And on all hills that shall be digged with the mat­tock, there shall not come thith­er the fear of bri­ers and thorns: but it shall be for the send­ing forth of ox­en, and for the tread­ing of les­ser cattle.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍8 
  1. MOREOVER THE ⟨Lord⟩ said un­to me, Take thee a great roll, and write in it with a mans pen con­cern­ing‍ ‍Ma‍′‍-‍her–‍shal‍′‍-‍al–‍hash‍′‍-‍baz.
  2. And I took un­to me faith­ful wit­ness­es to re­cord, U-‍ri‍′‍-‍ah the priest, and Zech-‍a-‍ri‍′‍-‍ah the son of Je-‍ber-‍e-‍chi‍′‍-‍ah.
  3. And I‍ ‍went un­to the proph­et­ess; and she con­ceived, and bare a son. Then said the ⟨Lord⟩ to me, Call his name‍ ‍Ma‍′‍-‍her–‍shal‍′‍-‍al–‍hash‍′‍-‍baz.
  4. For be­fore the child shall have knowl­edge to cry, My fa­ther, and my moth­er, the rich­es of Da­mas­cus and the spoil of Sa-‍ma‍′‍-‍ri-‍a shall be tak­en awaybe­fore the king of Assyria.
  5. The ⟨Lord⟩ spake al­so un­to me again, saying,
  6. Forasmuch as this peo­ple re­fus­eth the wa­ters of Shi-‍lo‍′‍-‍ah that go soft­ly, and re­joice in Re‍′‍-‍zin and Rem-‍a-‍li‍′‍-‍ahs son;
  7. Now there­fore, be­hold, the ⟨Lord⟩ bring­eth up up­on them the wa­ters of the riv­er, strong and ma­ny, even the king of As­syr­ia, and all his glo­ry: and he shall come up over all his chan­nels, and go over all his banks:
  8. And he shall pass through Ju­dah; he shall over­flow and go over, he shall reach even to the neck; and the stretch­ing out of his wings shall fill the breadth of thy land, O‍ ‍Im-‍man‍′‍-‍u-‍el.
  9. Associate your­selves, O‍ ‍ye peo­ple, and ye shall be bro­ken in piec­es; and give ear, all ye of far coun­tries: gird your­selves, and ye shall be bro­ken in piec­es; gird your­selves, and ye shall be bro­ken in pieces.
  10. Take coun­sel to­geth­er, and it shall come to nought; speak the word, and it shall not stand: for ⟨God⟩ is with us.
  11. For the ⟨Lord⟩ spake thus to me with a strong hand, and in­struct­ed me that I should not walk in the way of this peo­ple, saying,
  12. Say ye not, A‍ ‍con­fed­er­a­cy, to all them to whom this peo­ple shall say, A‍ ‍con­fed­er­a­cy; nei­ther fear ye their fear, nor be afraid.
  13. ⟨•Sanctify the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts him­self (in your heart); and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.
  14. And he shall be for‍ (you) a sanc­tu­ary;•⟩ but for a stone of stum­bling and for a rock of of­fence to both the hous­es of Is­ra­el, for a‍ ‍gin and for a snare to the in­hab­it­ants of Jerusalem.
  15. And ma­ny among them shall stum­ble, and fall, and be bro­ken, and be snared, and be taken.
  16. ⟨•Bind up the tes­ti­mo­ny, seal the law among my‍ ‍disciples.
  17. And I will wait up­on the ⟨Lord⟩, that hid­eth his face from the house of Ja­cob, and I will look for him.
  18. Behold, I and the chil­dren whom the ⟨Lord⟩ hath giv­en me are for signs and for won­ders in Is­ra­el from the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts, which dwell­eth in mount Zion.•⟩
  19. And when they shall say un­to you, Seek un­to them that have fa­mil­iar spir­its, and un­to wiz­ards that peep, and mut­ter: should not a peo­ple seek un­to their ⟨God⟩? for the liv­ing to the dead?
  20. To the law and to the (proph­ets‍) tes­ti­mo­ny: if they speak not ac­cord­ing to this word, it is be­cause there is no light in them.
  21. And they shall pass through it, hard­ly be­stead and hun­gry: and it shall come to pass, that when they shall be hun­gry, they shall fret them­selves, and curse their king and their ⟨God⟩, and look upward.
  22. And they shall look un­to the earth; and be­hold trou­ble and dark­ness, dim­ness of anguish; and they shall be driv­en to darkness.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍9 
  1. NEVERTHELESS THE‍(IR) DIM­NESS(of an­guish)shall not be such as was in her vex­a­tion, when at the first he (on­ly) light­ly af­flict­ed the land of Zeb‍′‍-‍u-‍lun and the land of Naph‍′‍-‍ta-‍li, and af­ter­ward did more griev­ous­ly af­flict her by the way of the sea, be­yond Jor­dan, in Gal­i­lee of the nations.
  2. The peo­ple that walked in dark­ness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of‍ ‍the shad­ow of death, up­on them hath the light shined.•⟩
  3. Thou hast mul­ti­plied the na­tion, and not in­creased the joy: they joy be­fore thee ac­cord­ing to the joy in har­vest, and as men re­joice when they di­vide the spoil.
  4. For thou hast bro­ken the yoke of his bur­den, and the staff of his shoul­der, the rod of his op­pres­sor, as in the day of Mid‍′‍-‍i-‍an.
  5. For ev­ery bat­tle of the war­rior is with con­fused noise, and gar­ments rolled in blood; but this shall be with burn­ing and fuel of fire.
  6. ⟨•For un­to us a child is born, un­to us a son is giv­en: and the gov­ern­ment shall be up­on his shoul­der: and his name shall be called Won­der­ful, Coun­sel­lor, The migh­ty ⟨God⟩, The ever­last­ing Fa­ther, The Prince of Peace.
  7. Of the in­crease of his gov­ern­ment and peace there shall be no end, up­on the throne of David, and up­on his king­dom, to or­der it, and to es­tab­lish it with judg­ment and with jus­tice from hence­forth even for ever. The zeal of the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts will per­form this.•⟩
  8. The ⟨Lord⟩ sent a word in­to Ja­cob, and it hath light­ed up­on Israel.
  9. And all the peo­ple shall know, even E‍′‍-‍phra-‍im and the in­hab­it­ant of Sa-‍ma‍′‍-‍ri-‍a, that say in the pride and stout­ness of heart,
  10. The bricks are fall­en down, but we will build with hewn stones: the syco­mores are cut down, but we will change them in­to cedars.
  11. Therefore the ⟨Lord⟩ shall set up the ad­ver­sar­ies of Re‍′‍-‍zin against him, and join his en­e­mies to­geth­er;
  12. The Syr­i­ans be­fore, and the Phi-‍lis‍′‍-‍tines be­hind; and they shall de­vour Is­ra­el with open mouth. For all this his an­ger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
  13. For the peo­ple turn­eth not un­to him that smit­eth them, nei­ther do they seek the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts.
  14. Therefore the ⟨Lord⟩ will cut off from Is­ra­el head and tail, branch and rush, in one day.
  15. The an­cient and (“)hon­our­a­ble,(”) he is the head; and the proph­et that teach­eth lies, he is the tail.
  16. For the lead­ers of this peo­ple cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.
  17. Therefore the ⟨Lord⟩ shall have no joy in their young men, nei­ther shall have mer­cy on their fa­ther­less and wid­ows: for ev­ery one is an hyp­o­crite and an evil­do­er, and ev­ery mouth speak­eth fol­ly. For all this his an­ger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
  18. ⟨•For wick­ed­ness burn­eth as the fire: it shall de­vour the briers and thorns, and shall kin­dle in the thick­ets of the for­est, and they shall mount up like the lift­ing up of smoke.•⟩
  19. Through the wrath of the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts is the land dark­ened, and the peo­ple shall be as the fuel of the fire: no man shall spare his brother.
  20. And he shall snatch on the right hand, and be hun­gry; and he shall eat on the left hand, and they shall not be sat­is­fied: they shall eat ev­ery man the flesh of his own arm:
  21. Ma-‍nas‍′‍-‍seh, E‍′‍-‍phra-‍im; and E‍′‍-‍phra-‍im, Ma-‍nas‍′‍-‍seh: and they to­geth­er shall be against Ju­dah. For all this his an­ger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍10 
  1. WOE UN­TO THEM THAT de­cree un­righ­teous de­crees, and that write griev­ous­ness which they have prescribed;
  2. To turn aside the needy from judg­ment, and to take away the right from the poor of my peo­ple, that wid­ows may be their prey, and that they may rob the fatherless!
  3. And what will ye do in the day of‍ ‍vis­i­ta­tion, and in the des­o­la­tionwhich shall come from far? to whom will ye flee for help? and where will ye leave your glory?
  4. Without me they shall bow down un­der the pris­on­ers, and they shall fall un­der the slain. For all this his an­ger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
  5. O‍ ‍As­syr­i­an, the rod of mine an­ger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation.
  6. I will send him against an hyp­o­crit­i­cal na­tion, and against the peo­ple of my wrath will I give him a charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets.
  7. Howbeit he mean­eth not so, nei­ther doth his heart think so, but it is in his heart to de­stroy and cut off na­tions not a few.
  8. For he sa­ith, Are not my princ­es al­to­geth­er‍ ‍kings?
  9. Is not Cal‍′‍-‍no as Car‍′‍-‍che-‍mish? is not Ha‍′‍-‍math as Ar‍′‍-‍pad? is not Sa-‍ma‍′‍-‍ri-‍a as Damascus?
  10. As my hand hath found the king­doms of the idols, and whose grav­en im­ag­es did ex­cel them of Je­ru­sa­lem and of Sa-‍ma‍′‍-‍ri-‍a;
  11. Shall I not, as I have done un­to Sa-‍ma‍′‍-‍ri-‍a and her idols, so do to Je­ru­sa­lem and her idols?
  12. Wherefore it shall come to pass, that when the ⟨Lord⟩ hath per­formed his whole work up­on mount Zion and on Je­ru­sa­lem, I will pun­ish the fruit of the stout heart of the king of As­syr­ia, and the glo­ry of his high looks.
  13. For he sa­ith, By the strength of my hand I have done it, and by my wis­dom; for I am pru­dent: and I have re­moved the bounds of the peo­ple, and have robbed their treas­ures, and I have put down the in­hab­it­ants like a‍ ‍val­iant‍ ‍man;
  14. And my hand hath found as a nest the rich­es of the peo­ple: and as one gath­er­eth eggs that are left, have I gath­ered all the earth; and there was none that moved the wing, or opened the mouth, or‍ ‍(even)‍ ‍peeped.
  15. Shall the ax boast it­self against him that hew­eth there­with? or shall the saw mag­ni­fy it­self against him that shak­eth it? as if the rod should shake it­self against them that lift it up, or as if the staff should lift up it­self, as if it were no‍ ‍wood.
  16. Therefore shall the ⟨Lord⟩, the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts, send among his fat ones lean­ness; and un­der his glo­ry he shall kin­dle a burn­ing like the burn­ing of a fire?
  17. And the light of Is­ra­el shall be for a fire, and his Holy One for a flame: and it shall burn and de­vour his thorns and his briers in one day;
  18. And shall con­sume the glo­ry of his for­est, and of his fruit­ful field, both soul and body: and they shall be as when a stan­dard-bear­er fainteth.
  19. And the rest of the trees of his for­est shall be few, that a child may write them.
  20. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the rem­nant of Is­ra­el, and such as are es­caped of the house of Ja­cob, shall no more again stay up­on him that smote them; but shall stay up­on the ⟨Lord⟩, the Holy One of Is­ra­el, in truth.
  21. The rem­nant shall re­turn, even the rem­nant of Ja­cob, un­to the migh­ty ⟨God⟩.
  22. For though thy peo­ple Is­ra­el be as the sand of the sea, yet a rem­nant of them shall re­turn: the con­sump­tion de­creed shall over­flow with‍ ‍righ­teous­ness.
  23. For the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩ of hosts shall make a‍ ‍con­sump­tion, even de­ter­mined, in the midst of all the land.
  24. Therefore thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩ of hosts, be not afraid of the As­syr­i­an: he shall smite thee with a rod, and shall lift up his staff against thee, af­ter the man­ner of Egypt.
  25. For yet a very lit­tle while, and the in­dig­na­tion shall cease, and mine an­ger in their destruction.
  26. And the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts shall stir up a‍ ‍scourge for him ac­cord­ing to the slaugh­ter of Mid‍′‍-‍i-‍an at the rock of O‍′‍-‍reb: and as his rod was up­on the sea, so shall he lift it up af­ter the man­ner of Egypt.
  27. And it shall come to pass in that day, that his bur­den shall be tak­en away from off thy shoul­der, and his yoke shall be de­stroyed be­cause of the anointing.
  28. He is come to A‍′‍-‍iath, he is passed to Mig‍′‍-‍ron; at Mich‍′‍-‍mash he hath laid up his carriages:
  29. They are gone over the pas­sage: they have tak­en up their lodg­ing at Ge‍′‍-‍ba; Ra‍′‍-‍mah is afraid; Gib‍′‍-‍e-‍ah of Saul is fled.
  30. Lift up thy voice, O‍ ‍daugh­ter of Gal‍′‍-‍lim: cause it to be heard un­to La‍′‍-‍ish, O‍ ‍poor An‍′‍-‍a-‍thoth.
  31. Mad-‍me‍′‍-‍nah is re­moved; the in­hab­it­ants of Ge‍′‍-‍bim gath­er them­selves to flee.
  32. As yet shall he re­main at Nob that day: he shall shake his hand against the mount of the daugh­ter of Zion, the hill of Jerusalem.
  33. Behold, the ⟨Lord⟩, the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts, shall lop the bough with ter­ror: and the high ones of stat­ure shall be hewn down, and the haugh­ty shall be humbled.
  34. And he shall cut down the thick­ets of the for­est with iron, and Leb‍′‍-‍a-‍non shall fall by a migh­ty‍ ‍one.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍11 
  1. ⟨•AND THERE SHALL COME forth a‍ ‍rod out of the stem of Jes­se, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:
  2. And the spir­it of the ⟨Lord⟩ shall rest up­on him, the spir­it of wis­dom and un­der­stand­ing, the spir­it of coun­sel and might, the spir­it of knowl­edge and of the fear of the ⟨Lord⟩;
  3. And shall make him of quick un­der­stand­ing in the fear of the ⟨Lord⟩: and he shall not judge af­ter the sight of his eyes, nei­ther re­prove af­ter the hear­ing of his ears:
  4. But with righ­teous­ness shall he judge the poor, and re­prove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.
  5. And righ­teous­ness shall be the gir­dle of his loins, and faith­ful­ness the gir­dle of his reins.
  6. The wolf al­so shall dwell with the lamb, and the leop­ard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young li­on and the fat­ling to­geth­er; and a lit­tle child shall lead them.
  7. And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down to­geth­er: and the li­on shall eat straw like the ox.
  8. And the suck­ing child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cock­a­trice‍den.
  9. They shall not hurt nor de­stroy in all my holy moun­tain: for the earth shall be full of the knowl­edge of the ⟨Lord⟩, as the wa­ters cov­er the sea.
  10. And in that day there shall be an en­sign of the peo­ple; to it shall the Gen­tiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.•⟩
  11. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the ⟨Lord⟩ shall set his hand again the sec­ond time to re­cov­er the rem­nant of his peo­ple, which shall be left, from As­syr­ia, and from Egypt, and from Path‍′‍-‍ros, and from Cush, and from E‍′‍-‍lam, and from Shi‍′‍-‍nar, and from Ha‍′‍-‍math, and from the is­lands of the sea.
  12. And he shall set up an en­sign for the na­tions, and shall as­sem­ble the out­casts of Is­ra­el, and gath­er to­geth­er the dis­persed of Ju­dah from the four cor­ners of the earth.
  13. The en­vy of E‍′‍-‍phra-‍im shall de­part, and the ad­ver­sar­ies of Ju­dah shall be cut off: E‍′‍-‍phra-‍im shall not en­vy Ju­dah, and Ju­dah shall not vex E‍′‍-‍phra-‍im.
  14. But they shall fly up­on the shoul­ders of the Phi-‍lis‍′‍-‍tines to­ward the west; they shall spoil them of the east to­geth­er: they shall lay their hand up­on E‍′‍-‍dom and Mo­ab; and the chil­dren of Am­mon shall obey them.
  15. And the ⟨Lord⟩ shall ut­ter­ly de­stroy the tongue of the Egyp­tian sea; and with his migh­ty wind shall he shake his hand over the river, and shall smite it in the sev­en streams, and make men go over dryshod.
  16. And there shall be an high­way for the rem­nant of his peo­ple, which shall be left, from As­syr­ia; like as it was to Is­ra­el in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.

  9. Behold, the day of the ⟨Lord⟩ com­eth, cru­el both with wrath and fierce an­ger, to lay the land des­o­late: and he shall de­stroy the sin­ners there­of out of it.
  10. For the stars of‍ (the sec­ond) heav­en and the con­stel­la­tions there­of shall not give their light: the sun shall be dark­ened in his go­ing forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.
  11. And I will pun­ish the world for their evil, and the wick­ed for their iniquity; and I will cause the ar­ro­gan­cy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haugh­ti­ness of the‍ ‍terrible.
  12. I will make a man more pre­cious than fine gold; even a man (more pre­cious) than the gold­en wedge of O‍′‍-‍phir.
  13. Therefore I will shake the (first two) heav­ens, and the earth shall re­move out of her place, in the wrath of the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.
  14. And it shall be as the chased roe, and as a sheep that no man tak­eth up: they shall ev­ery man turn to his own peo­ple, and flee ev­ery one in­to his own land.
  15. Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and ev­ery one that is joined un­to them shall fall by the sword.
  16. Their chil­dren al­so shall be dashed to piec­es be­fore their eyes; their hous­es shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished.
  17. Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, which shall not re­gard sil­ver; and as for gold, they shall not de­light in it.
  18. Their bows al­so shall dash the young men to piec­es; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eye shall not spare children.•⟩
  19. And Bab­y­lon, the glo­ry of king­doms, the beau­ty of the Chal‍′‍-‍dees’ ex­cel­len­cy, shall be as when ⟨God⟩over­threw Sod­om and Go-‍mor‍′‍-‍rah.
  20. It shall nev­er be in­hab­it­ed, nei­ther shall it be dwelt in from gen­er­a­tion to gen­er­a­tion: nei­ther shall the A-‍ra‍′‍-‍bi-‍an pitch tent there; nei­ther shall the shep­herds make their fold there.
  21. But wild beasts of the des­ert shall lie there; and their hous­es shall be full of‍ ‍dole­ful crea­tures; and owls shall dwell there, and sa­tyrs shall dance there.
  22. And the wild beasts of the (coastal) is­lands shall cry in their des­o­late hous­es, and drag­ons in their pleas­ant pal­ac­es: and her time is near to come, and her days shall not be prolonged.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍14 
  1. FOR THE ⟨Lord⟩ WILL HAVE mer­cy on Ja­cob, and will yet choose Is­ra­el, and set them in their own land: and the stran­gers shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob.
  2. And the peo­ple shall take them, and bring them to their place: and the house of Is­ra­el shall pos­sess them in the land of the ⟨Lord⟩ for serv­ants and hand­maids: and they shall take them cap­tives, whose cap­tives were; and they shall rule over their oppressors.
  3. And it shall come to pass in the day that the ⟨Lord⟩ shall give thee rest from thy sor­row, and from thy fear, and from the hard bond­age where­in thou wast made to serve.
  4. That thou shalt take up this pro­verb against the king of Bab­y­lon, and say, How hath the op­press­or ceased! the gold­en city‍ ‍ceased!
  5. The ⟨Lord⟩ hath bro­ken the staff of the wick­ed, and the scep­tre of the rulers.
  6. He who smote the peo­ple in wrath with a con­tin­u­al stroke, he that ruled the na­tions in an­ger, is per­se­cut­ed, and none hindereth.
  7. The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they break forth in­to singing.
  8. Yea, the fir trees re­joice at thee, and the ce­dars of Leb‍′‍-‍a-‍non, say­ing, Since thou art laid down, no fell­er is come up against us.
  9. Hell from be­neath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy com­ing: it stir­reth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the na­tions.
  10. All they shall speak and say un­to thee, Art thou al­so be­come weak as we? art thou be­come like un­to us?
  11. Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy vi­ols: the worm is spread un­der thee, and the worms cov­er thee.
  12. ⟨•How art thou fall­en from (the third) heav­en, O‍ ‍Lu‍′‍-‍ci-‍fer, son of the morn­ing! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weak­en the nations!
  13. For thou hast said in thine heart, I will1‌as­cend in­to (the third) heav­en, I will2‌ex­alt my throne above the stars of ⟨God⟩: I will3‌sit al­so up­on the mount of the con­gre­ga­tion, in the sides of the north:
  14. I will4‌as­cend above the heights of the clouds; I will5‌be like the most High.
  15. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of‍ ‍the‍ ‍pit.
  16. They that see thee shall nar­row­ly look up­on thee, and con­sid­er thee, say­ing, Is this the man that made the earth to trem­ble, that did shake kingdoms;
  17. That made the world as a‍ ‍wil­der­ness, and de­stroyed the cit­ies there­of; that opened not the house of his prisoners?•⟩(See Also: Ezekiel 28:12b-19)
  18. All the kings of the na­tions,even all of them, lie in glo­ry, ev­ery one in his own house.
  19. But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abom­i­na­ble branch, and as the rai­ment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a car­case trod­den un­der feet.
  20. Thou shalt not be joined with them in bur­i­al, be­cause thou hast de­stroyed thy land, and slain thy peo­ple: the seed of evil­do­ers shall nev­er be renowned.
  21. Prepare slaugh­ter for his chil­dren for the in­iq­ui­ty of their fa­thers; that they do not rise, nor pos­sess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities.
  22. For I will rise up against them, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts, and cut off from Bab­y­lon the name, and rem­nant, and son, and neph­ew, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩.
  23. I will al­so make it a pos­ses­sion for the bit­tern, and pools of wa­ter: and I will sweep it with the be­som of de­struc­tion, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts.
  24. The ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts hath sworn, say­ing, Sure­ly as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have pur­posed, so shall it stand:
  25. That I will break the As­syr­i­an in my land, and up­on my moun­tains tread him un­der foot: then shall his yoke de­part from off them, and his bur­den de­part from off their shoulders.
  26. This is the pur­pose that is pur­posed up­on the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out up­on all the‍ ‍nations.
  27. For the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts hath pur­posed, and who shall dis­an­nul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?
  28. In the year that king Ahaz died was this burden.
  29. Rejoice not thou, whole Pal-‍es-‍ti‍′‍-‍na, be­cause the rod of him that smote thee is bro­ken: for out of the ser­pents root shall come forth a cock­a­trice, and his fruit shall be a fi­ery fly­ing serpent.
  30. And the first­born of the poor shall feed, and the needy shall lie down in safe­ty: and I will kill thy root with fam­ine, and he shall slay thy remnant.
  31. Howl, O‍ ‍gate; cry, O‍ ‍city; thou, whole Pal-‍es-‍ti‍′‍-‍na, art dis­solved: for there shall come from the north a smoke, and none shall be alone in his ap­point­ed times.
  32. What shall one then an­swer the mes­sen­gers of the na­tion? That the ⟨Lord⟩ hath found­ed Zion, and the poor of his peo­ple shall trust in it.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍15 
  1. THE BUR­DEN OF MO­AB. Be­cause in the night Ar of Mo­ab is laid waste, and brought to si­lence; be­cause in the night Kir of Mo­ab is laid waste, and brought to silence;
  2. He is gone up to Ba‍′‍-‍jith, and to Di‍′‍-‍bon, the high plac­es, to weep: Mo­ab shall howl over Ne‍′‍-‍bo, and over Med‍′‍-‍e-‍ba: on all their heads shall be bald­ness, and ev­ery beard cut off.
  3. In their streets they shall gird them­selves with sack­cloth: on the tops of their hous­es, and in their streets, ev­ery one shall howl, weep­ing abundantly.
  4. And Hesh‍′‍-‍bon shall cry, and E-‍le-‍a‍′‍-‍leh: their voice shall be heard even un­to Ja‍′‍-‍haz: there­fore the armed sol­diers of Mo­ab shall cry out; his life shall be griev­ous un­to him.
  5. My heart shall cry out for Mo­ab; his fu­gi­tivesshall flee un­to Zo‍′‍-‍ar, an heif­er of three years old: for by the mount­ing up of Lu‍′‍-‍hith with weep­ing shall they go it up; for in the way of‍ ‍Hor-‍o-‍na‍′‍-‍im they shall raise up a cry of destruction.
  6. For the wa­ters of Nim‍′‍-‍rim shall be des­o­late: for the hay is‍ ‍with­ered away, the grass fail­eth, there is no green thing.
  7. Therefore the abun­dance they have got­ten, and that which they have laid up, shall they car­ry away to the brook of the‍ ‍willows.
  8. For the cry is gone round about the bor­ders of Mo­ab; the howl­ing there­of un­to Eg‍′‍-‍la-‍im, and the howl­ing there­of un­to Be‍′‍-‍er–‍e‍′‍-‍lim.
  9. For the wa­ters of Di‍′‍-‍mon shall be full of blood: for I will bring more up­on Di‍′‍-‍mon, li­ons up­on him that es­cap­eth of Mo­ab, and up­on the rem­nant of the land.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍16 
  1. SEND YE THE LAMB to the rul­er of the land from Se‍′‍-‍la to the wil­der­ness, un­to the mount of the daugh­ter of Zion.
  2. For it shall be, that, as a wan­der­ing bird cast out of the nest, so the daugh­ters of Mo­ab shall be at the fords of Arnon.
  3. Take coun­sel, ex­e­cute judg­ment; make thy shad­ow as the night in the midst of the noon­day; hide the out­casts; be­wray not him that wandereth.
  4. Let mine out­casts dwell with thee, Mo­ab; be thou a‍ ‍cov­ert to them from the face of the spoil­er: for the ex­tor­tion­er is at an end, the spoil­er ceas­eth, the op­pres­sors are con­sumed out of the land.
  5. And in mer­cy shall the throne be es­tab­lished: and he shall sit up­on it in truth in the tab­er­na­cle of David, judg­ing, and seek­ing judg­ment, and hast­ing‍ ‍righ­teous­ness.
  6. We have heard of the pride of Mo­ab; he is‍ ‍very proud: even of his haugh­ti­ness, and his pride, and his wrath: but his lies shall not be so.
  7. Therefore shall Mo­ab howl for Mo­ab, ev­ery one shall howl: for the foun­da­tions of Kir–‍har‍′‍-‍e-‍seth shall ye mourn; sure­ly they are stricken.
  8. For the fields of Hesh‍′‍-‍bon lan­guish, and the vine of Sib‍′‍-‍mah: the lords of the heath­en, have bro­ken down the prin­ci­pal plants there­of, they are come even un­to Ja‍′‍-‍zer, they wan­dered through the wil­der­ness: her branch­es are stretched out, they are gone over the sea.
  9. Therefore I will be­wail with the weep­ing of Ja‍′‍-‍zer the vine of Sib‍′‍-‍mah: I will wa­ter thee with my tears, O‍ ‍Hesh‍′‍-‍bon, and E-‍le-‍a‍′‍-‍leh: for the shout­ing for thy sum­mer fruits and for thy har­vest (which) is fallen.
  10. And glad­ness is tak­en away, and joy out of the plen­ti­ful field; and in the vine­yards there shall be no sing­ing, nei­ther shall there be shout­ing; the tread­ers shall tread out no wine in their press­es; I have made their vint­age shout­ing to cease.
  11. Wherefore my bow­els shall sound like an harp for Mo­ab, and mine in­ward parts (shall sound like an harp) for Kir–‍ha‍′‍-‍resh.
  12. And it shall come to pass, when it is seen that Mo­ab is weary on the high place, that he shall come to his sanc­tu­ary to pray; but he shall not‍ ‍prevail.
  13. This is the word that the ⟨Lord⟩ hath spo­ken con­cern­ing Mo­ab since that time.
  14. But now the ⟨Lord⟩ hath spo­ken, say­ing, With­in three years, as the years of an hire­ling, and the glo­ry of Mo­ab shall be con­temned, with all that great mul­ti­tude; and the rem­nant shall be very small and feeble.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍17 
  1. THE BUR­DEN OF DA­MAS­CUS. Be­hold, Da­mas­cus is tak­en away from be­ing a city, and it shall be a ruin­ous heap.
  2. The cit­ies of Ar‍′‍-‍o-‍er are for­sak­en: they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make them afraid.
  3. The for­tress al­so shall cease from E‍′‍-‍phra-‍im, and the king­dom from Da­mas­cus, and the rem­nant of Syr­ia: they shall be as the glo­ry of the chil­dren of Is­ra­el, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts.
  4. And in that day it shall come to pass, that the glo­ry of Ja­cob shall be made thin, and the fat­ness of his flesh shall wax lean.
  5. And it shall be as‍ ‍when the har­vest­man gath­er­eth the corn, and reap­eth the ears with his arm; and it shall be as he that gath­er­eth ears in the val­ley of Reph‍′‍-‍a-‍im,
  6. Yet glean­ing grapes shall be left in it, as the shak­ing of an ol­ive tree, two or three ber­ries in the top of the up­per­most bough, four or five in the out­most fruit­ful branch­es there­of, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩ of Israel.
  7. ⟨•At that day shall a man look to his Mak­er, and his eyes shall have re­spect to the Holy One of Israel.•⟩
  8. And he shall not look to the al­tars, the work of his hands, nei­ther shall re­spect that which his fin­gers have made, ei­ther the groves, or the images.
  9. In that day shall his strong cit­ies be as a for­sak­en bough, and an up­per­most branch, which they left be­cause of the chil­dren of Is­ra­el: and there shall be‍ ‍desolation.
  10. Because thou hast for­got­ten the ⟨God⟩ of thy sal­va­tion, and hast not been mind­ful of the rock of thy strength, there­fore shalt thou plant pleas­ant plants, and shalt set it with strange slips:?
  11. In the day shalt thou make thy plant to grow, and in the morn­ing shalt thou make thy seed to flour­ish: but the har­vest shall be a heap in the day of grief and of des­per­ate sorrow.
  12. Woe to the mul­ti­tude of ma­ny peo­ple, which make a noise like the noise of the seas; and to the rush­ing of na­tions,that make a rush­ing like the rush­ing of migh­ty waters!
  13. The na­tions shall rush like the rush­ing of ma­ny wa­ters: but God shall re­buke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the moun­tains be­fore the wind, and like a roll­ing thing be­fore the‍ ‍whirlwind.
  14. And be­hold at eve­ning­tide trou­ble; and be­fore the morn­ing he isnot.  This is the por­tion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍18 
  1. WOE TO THE LAND shad­ow­ing with wings, which is be­yond the riv­ers of E-‍thi-‍o‍′‍-‍pi-‍a:
  2. That send­eth am­bas­sa­dors by the sea, even in‍ ‍ves­sels of bul­rush­es up­on the wa­ters. say­ing, Go, ye swift mes­sen­gers, to a na­tion scat­tered and peeled, to a peo­ple ter­ri­ble from their be­gin­ning hith­er­to; a na­tion met­ed out and trod­den down, whose land the riv­ers have spoiled!
  3. All ye in­hab­it­ants of the world, and dwell­ers on the earth, see ye, when he lift­eth up an en­sign on the moun­tains; and when he blow­eth a trum­pet, hear ye.
  4. For so the ⟨Lord⟩ said un­to me, I will take my rest, and I will con­sid­er in my dwell­ing place like a clear heat up­on herbs, and like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.
  5. For afore the har­vest, when the bud is per­fect, and the sour grape is rip­en­ing in the flow­er, he shall both cut off the sprigs with prun­ing­hooks, and take away and cut down the branches.
  6. They shall be left to­geth­er un­to the fowls of the moun­tains, and to the beasts of the earth: and the fowls shall (spend the) sum­mer up­on them, and all the beasts of the earth shall (spend the) win­ter up­on them.
  7. In that time shall the pres­ent be brought un­to the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts of a peo­ple scat­tered and peeled, and from a peo­ple ter­ri­ble from their be­gin­ning hith­er­to; a‍(n heath­en) na­tion meted out and trod­den un­der foot, whose land the riv­ers have spoiled, to the place of the name of the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts, the mount Zion.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍19 
  1. THE BUR­DEN OF EGYPT. Be­hold, the ⟨Lord⟩ rid­eth up­on a swift cloud, and shall come in­to Egypt: and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his pres­ence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it.
  2. And I will set the Egyp­tians against the Egyp­tians: and they shall fight ev­ery one against his broth­er, and ev­ery one against his neigh­bour; city against city, and king­dom against kingdom.
  3. And the spir­it of Egypt shall fail in the midst there­of; and I will de­stroy the coun­sel there­of: and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charm­ers, and to them that have fa­mil­iar spir­its, and to the‍ ‍wizards.
  4. And the Egyp­tians will I give over in­to the hand of a cru­el lord; and a fierce king shall rule over them, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩, the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts.
  5. And the wa­ters shall fail from the sea, and the riv­er shall be wast­ed and dried up.
  6. And they shall turn the riv­ers far away; and the brooks of de­fence shall be emp­tied and dried up: the (pa­per) reeds and flags shall wither.
  7. The pa­per reeds (in marsh­land mead­ows) by the brooks, by the mouth of the brooks, shall with­er, be driv­en away, and be no more.
  8. The fish­ers al­so shall mourn and all that that cast an­gle in­to the brooks shall la­ment, and that that spread nets up­on the wa­ters shall languish.
  9. Moreover they that work in fine flax, and they that weave net­works, shall be confounded.
  10. And they shall be bro­ken in the pur­pos­es there­of, all that make sluic­esand ponds for fish.
  11. Surely the princ­es of Zo‍′‍-‍an are fools, the coun­sel of the wise coun­sel­lors of Pha­raoh is be­come brut­ish:(so)‍ ‍how (then) say ye un­to Pha­raoh, I am the son of the wise, the son of an­cient kings?
  12. Where are they? where are thy wise men? and let them tell thee now, and let them know what the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts hath pur­posed up­on‍ ‍Egypt.
  13. The princ­es of Zo‍′‍-‍an are be­come fools, the princ­es of Noph are de­ceived; they have al­so se­duced Egypt, even they that are the stay of the tribes thereof.
  14. The ⟨Lord⟩ hath min­gled a per­verse spir­it in the midst there­of: and they have caused Egypt to err in ev­ery work there­of, as a drunk­en man stag­ger­eth in his vomit.
  15. Neither shall there be any work (avail­a­ble) for Egypt, which the head or tail, branch or rush, may‍ ‍do.
  16. In that day shall Egypt be like un­to wom­en: and it shall be afraid and fear be­cause of the shak­ing of the hand of the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts, which he shak­eth over it.
  17. And the land of Ju­dah shall be a ter­ror un­to Egypt, ev­ery one that mak­eth men­tion there­of shall be afraid in him­self, be­cause of the coun­sel of the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts, which he hath de­ter­mined against it.
  18. In that day shall five cit­ies in the land of Egypt speak the lan­guage of Ca­naan, and swear to the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts; one shall be called, The city of destruction.
  19. In that day shall there be an al­tar to the ⟨Lord⟩ in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pil­lar at the bor­der there­of to the ⟨Lord⟩.
  20. And it shall be for a sign and for a wit­ness un­to the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts in the land of Egypt: for they shall cry un­to the ⟨Lord⟩ be­cause of the op­pres­sors, and he shall send them a sav­iour, and a great one, and he shall de­liv­er them.
  21. And the ⟨Lord⟩ shall be known to Egypt, and the Egyp­tians shall know the ⟨Lord⟩ in that day, and shall do sac­ri­fice and obla­tion; yea, they shall vow‍ ‍a‍ ‍vow un­to the ⟨Lord⟩, and per­form it.
  22. And the ⟨Lord⟩ shall smite Egypt: he shall smite and heal it: and they shall re­turn even to the ⟨Lord⟩, and he shall be en­treat­ed of‍ ‍them, and shall heal them.
  23. In that day shall there be a‍(n) high­way out of Egypt to As­syr­ia, and the As­syr­ian shall come in­to Egypt, and the Egyp­tian in­to As­syr­ia, and the Egyp­tians shall serve with the Assyrians.
  24. In that day shall Is­ra­el be the third (par­ty) with Egypt and with As­syr­ia, even a bless­ing in the midst of the land:
  25. Whom the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts shall bless, say­ing, Blessed be Egypt my peo­ple, and As­syr­ia the work of my hands, and Is­ra­el mine inheritance.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍20 
  1. IN THE YEAR THAT TAR‍′‍-‍TAN came un­to Ash‍′‍-‍dod, (when Sar‍′‍-‍gon the king of As­syr­ia sent him,) and fought against Ash‍′‍-‍dod, and took it;
  2. At the same time spake the ⟨Lord⟩ by Isai­ah the son of Amoz, say­ing, Go and loose the sack­cloth from off thy loins, and put off thy shoe from thy foot. And he did so, walk­ing na­ked and barefoot.
  3. And the ⟨Lord⟩ said, Like as my serv­ant Isai­ah hath walked na­ked and bare­foot three years for a sign and won­der up­on Egypt and up­on E-‍thi-‍o‍′‍-‍pi-‍a;
  4. So shall the king of As­syr­ia lead away the Egyp­tians (as)‍ ‍pris­on­ers, and the E-‍thi-‍o‍′‍-‍pi-‍ans (as)‍ ‍cap­tives, young and old, na­ked and bare­foot, even with their but­tocks un­cov­ered, to the shame of Egypt.
  5. And they shall be afraid and ashamed of E-‍thi-‍o‍′‍-‍pi-‍a their ex­pec­ta­tion, and of Egypt their glory.
  6. And the in­hab­it­ant of this isle shall say in that day, Be­hold, such is our ex­pec­ta­tion, whith­er (shall) we flee for help to be de­liv­ered from the king of As­syr­ia: and how shall we escape?
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍21 
  1. THE BURDEN OF THE DES­ERT of the sea. As‍ ‍whirl­winds in the south pass through; so it com­eth from the des­ert, from a ter­ri­ble‍ ‍land.
  2. A griev­ous vi­sion is de­clared un­to me; the treach­er­ous deal­er deal­eth treach­er­ous­ly, and the spoil­er spoil­eth. Go up, O‍ ‍E‍′‍-‍lam: be­siege, O‍ ‍Me‍′‍-‍di-‍a; all the sigh­ing there­of have I made to cease.
  3. Therefore are my loins filled with pain: pangs have tak­en hold up­on me, as the pangs of a‍ ‍wom­an that tra­vail­eth (in child­birth): I was dis­mayed at the see­ing of it.
  4. My heart pant­ed, fear­ful­ness af­fright­ed me: the night of my pleas­ure hath he turned in­to fear un­to me.
  5. Prepare (ye) the ta­ble, watch in the watch­tow­er, eat, drink: arise, ye princ­es, and anoint the shield.
  6. For thus hath the ⟨Lord⟩ said un­to me, Go, set a‍ ‍watch­man, let him de­clare what he seeth.
  7. And he saw a char­i­ot with a cou­ple of horse­men, a char­i­ot of ass­es, and a char­i­ot of cam­els; and he hear­kened dil­i­gent­ly with much heed:
  8. And he cried, A li­on: My lord, I stand con­tin­u­al­ly up­on the watch­tow­er in the day­time, and I am set in my ward whole nights:
  9. And, be­hold, here com­eth a char­i­ot of men, with a cou­ple of horse­men. And he an­swered and said, ⟨•Bab­y­lon is fall­en, is fall­en;•⟩ and all the grav­en im­ag­es of her gods he hath bro­ken (down) un­to the ground. (See Also: Revelation 14:8)
  10. O‍ ‍my thresh­ing, and the corn of my floor: that which I have heard of the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts, the ⟨God⟩ of Is­ra­el, have I de­clared un­to you.
  11. The bur­den of Du‍′‍-‍mah. He call­eth to me out of Se‍′‍-‍ir, Watch­man, what of the night? Watch­man, what of the night?
  12. The watch­man said, The morn­ing com­eth, and al­so the night: if ye will en­quire, en­quire ye: re­turn,‍ ‍come.
  13. The bur­den up­on A-‍ra‍′‍-‍bi-‍a. In the for­est in A-‍ra‍′‍-‍bi-‍a shall ye lodge, O‍ ‍ye trav­el­ling com­pa­nies of Ded‍′‍-‍a-‍nim.
  14. The in­hab­it­ants of the land of Te‍′‍-‍ma brought wa­ter to him that was thirsty, they pre­vent­ed with their bread him that fled.
  15. For they fled from the swords, from the drawn sword, and from the bent bow, and from the griev­ous­ness of war.
  16. For thus hath sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ said un­to me, With­in a year, ac­cord­ing to the years of an hire­ling, and all the glo­ry of Ke‍′‍-‍dar shall fail:
  17. And the res­i­due of the num­ber of arch­ers, the migh­ty men of the chil­dren of Ke‍′‍-‍dar, shall be di­min­ished: for the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩ of Is­ra­el hath spo­ken it.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍22 
  1. THE BUR­DEN OF THE VAL­LEY of vi­sion. What ail­eth thee now, that thou art whol­ly gone up to the house tops?
  2. Thou art full of stirs, a tu­mult­u­ous city, a joy­ous city: thy slain men are not slain with the sword, nor dead in battle.
  3. All thy rul­ers are fled to­geth­er, they are bound by the arch­ers: all that are found in thee are bound to­geth­er, which have fled from far.
  4. Therefore said I, Look away from me, be­cause of the spoil­ing of the daugh­ter of my people.
  5. For it is a day of trou­ble, and of tread­ing down, and of per­plex­i­ty by the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩ of hosts in the val­ley of vi­sion, break­ing down the walls, and of cry­ing to the mountains.
  6. And E‍′‍-‍lam bare the quiv­er with char­i­ots of men and horse­men, and Kir un­cov­ered the shield.
  7. And it shall come to pass, that thy choic­est val­leys shall be full of char­i­ots, and the horse­men shall set them­selves in ar­ray at the gate.
  8. And he dis­cov­ered the cov­er­ing of Ju­dah, and thou didst look in that day to the ar­mour of the house of the forest.
  9. Ye have seen al­so the breach­es of the city of David, that they are ma­ny: and ye gath­ered to­geth­er the wa­ters of the low­er pool.
  10. And ye have num­bered the hous­es of Je­ru­sa­lem, and the hous­es have ye bro­ken down to for­ti­fy the‍ ‍wall.
  11. Ye made al­so a‍ ‍ditch be­tween the two walls for the wa­ter of the old pool: but ye have not looked un­to the mak­er there­of, nei­ther had re­spect un­to him that fash­ioned it long ago.
  12. And in that day did the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩ of hosts call to weep­ing, and to mourn­ing, and to bald­ness, and to gird­ing with sackcloth:
  13. And be­hold joy and glad­ness, slay­ing ox­en, and kill­ing sheep, eat­ing flesh, and drink­ing wine: let us eat and drink; for to mor­row we shall die.
  14. And it was re­vealed in mine ears by the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts, Sure­ly this in­iq­ui­ty shall not be purged from you till ye die, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩ of hosts.
  15. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩ of hosts, Go, get thee un­to this treas­ur­er, even un­to Sheb‍′‍-‍na, which is over the house, and say,
  16. What hast thou here? and whom hast thou here, that thou hast hewed thee out a sep­ul­chre here, as he that hew­eth him out a sep­ul­chre on high, and that grav­eth an hab­i­ta­tion for him­self in a rock?
  17. Behold, the ⟨Lord⟩ will car­ry thee away with a migh­ty cap­tiv­i­ty, and will sure­ly cov­er thee.
  18. He will sure­ly vi­o­lent­ly turn and toss thee like a ball in­to a large coun­try: there shalt thou die, and there the char­i­ots of thy glo­ry shall be the shame of thy lords house.
  19. And I will drive thee from thy sta­tion, and from thy state shall he pull thee down.
  20. And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will call my serv­ant E-‍li‍′‍-‍a-‍kim the son of Hil-‍ki‍′‍-‍ah:
  21. And I will clothe him with thy robe, and strength­en him with thy gir­dle, and I will com­mit thy gov­ern­ment in­to his hand: and he shall be a fa­ther to the in­hab­it­ants of Je­ru­sa­lem, and to the house of Ju­dah.
  22. And the key of the house of David will I lay on his shoul­der; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.
  23. And I will fas­ten him as a nail in a sure place; and he shall be for a glo­ri­ous throne to his fa­thers house.
  24. And they shall hang up­on him all the glo­ry of his fa­thers house, the off­spring and the is­sue, all ves­sels of small quan­ti­ty, from the ves­sels of‍ ‍cups, even to all the ves­sels of‍ ‍flag-‍ons.
  25. In that day, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts, shall the nail that is fas­tened in the sure place be re­moved, and be cut down, and fall: and the bur­den that was up­on it shall be cut off: for the ⟨Lord⟩ hath spo­ken it.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍23 
  1. THE BUR­DEN OF‍ ‍TYRE. Howl, ye ships of Tar‍′‍-‍shish; for it is laid waste, so that there is no house, no en­ter­ing in: from the land of Chit‍′‍-‍tim it is re­vealed to them.
  2. Be still, ye in­hab­it­ants of the isle; thou whom the mer­chants of Zi‍′‍-‍don, that pass over the sea, have replenished.
  3. And by great wa­ters the seed of Si‍′‍-‍hor, the har­vest of the riv­er, is her rev­e­nue; and she is a mart of na­tions.
  4. Be thou ashamed, O‍ ‍Zi‍′‍-‍don: for the sea hath spo­ken, even the strength of the sea, say­ing, I tra­vail not, nor bring forth chil­dren, nei­ther do I nour­ish up young men, nor bring up virgins.
  5. As at the re­port con­cern­ing Egypt, so shall they be sore­ly pained at the re­port of Tyre.
  6. Pass ye over to Tar‍′‍-‍shish; howl, ye in­hab­it­ants of the‍ ‍isle.
  7. Is this your joy­ous city, whose an­tiq­ui­ty is of an­cient days? her own feet shall car­ry her afar off to sojourn.
  8. Who hath tak­en this coun­sel against Tyre, the crown­ing city, whose mer­chants are princ­es, whose traf­fick­ersare the hon­our­a­ble of the earth?
  9. The ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts hath pur­posed it, to stain the pride of all glo­ry, and to bring in­to con­tempt all the hon­our­a­ble of the earth.
  10. Pass through thy land as a riv­er, O‍ ‍daugh­ter of Tar‍′‍-‍shish: there is no more strength.
  11. He stretched out his hand over the sea, he shook the king­doms: the ⟨Lord⟩ hath giv­en a com­mand­ment against the mer­chant city, to de­stroy the strong holds thereof.
  12. And he said, Thou shalt no more re­joice, O‍ ‍thou op­pressed vir­gin, daugh­ter of Zi‍′‍-‍don: arise, pass over to Chit‍′‍-‍tim; there al­so shalt thou have no rest.
  13. Behold the land of the Chal-‍de‍′‍-‍ans; this peo­ple was not, till the As­syr­ian found­ed it for them that dwell in the wil­der­ness: they set up the tow­ers there­of, they raised up the pal­ac­es there­of; and he brought it to ruin.
  14. Howl, ye ships of Tar‍′‍-‍shish: for your strength is laid waste.
  15. And it shall come to pass in that day, that Tyre shall be for­got­en sev­en­ty years, ac­cord­ing to the days of one king: af­ter the end of sev­en­ty years shall Tyre sing as an harlot.
  16. Take an harp, go about the city, thou har­lot that hast been for­got­ten; make sweet mel­o­dy, sing ma­ny songs, that thou may­est be remembered.
  17. And it shall come to pass af­ter the end of sev­en­ty years, that the ⟨Lord⟩ will visit Tyre, and she shall turn to her hire, and shall com­mit for­ni­ca­tion with all the king­doms of the world up­on the face of the earth.
  18. And her mer­chan­dise and her hire shall be ho­li­ness to the ⟨Lord⟩: it shall not be treas­ured nor laid up; for her mer­chan­dise shall be for them that dwell be­fore the ⟨Lord⟩, to eat suf­fi­cient­ly, and for dur­a­ble clothing.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍24 
  1. BEHOLD, THE ⟨Lord⟩ MAK­ETH the earth emp­ty, and mak­eth it waste, and turn­eth it up­side down, and scat­ter­eth abroad the in­hab­it­ants thereof.
  2. And it shall be, as with the peo­ple, so with the priest; as with the serv­ant, so with his mas­ter; as with the maid, so with her mis­tress; as with the buy­er, so with the sell­er; as with the tak­er of us­ury, so with the giv­er of us­ury to him.
  3. The land shall be ut­ter­ly emp­tied, and ut­ter­ly spoiled: for the ⟨Lord⟩ hath spo­ken this‍ ‍word.
  4. The earth mourn­eth and fad­eth away, the world lan­guish­eth and fad­eth away, the haugh­ty peo­ple of the earth do languish.
  5. The earth al­so is de­filed un­der the in­hab­it­ants there­of; be­cause they have trans­gressed the laws, changed the or­di­nance, bro­ken the ever­last­ing covenant.
  6. Therefore hath the curse de­voured the earth, and they that dwell there­in are des­o­late: there­fore the in­hab­it­ants of the earth are burned, and few men left.
  7. The new wine mourn­eth, the vine lan­guish­eth, all the mer­ry­heart­ed do sigh.
  8. The mirth of‍ ‍tab­rets ceas­eth, the noise of them that re­joice end­eth, the joy of the harp ceaseth.
  9. They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink shall be bit­ter to them that drink it.
  10. The city of con­fu­sion is bro­ken down: ev­ery house is shut up, that no man may come in.
  11. There is a cry­ing for wine in the streets; all joy is dark­ened, the mirth of the land is gone.
  12. In the city is left des­o­la­tion, and the gate is smit­ten with destruction.
  13. When thus it shall be in the midst of the land among the peo­ple, there shall be as the shak­ing of an ol­ive tree, and as the glean­ing grapes when the vin­tage is done.
  14. They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the maj­es­ty of the ⟨Lord⟩, they shall cry aloud from the sea.
  15. Wherefore glo­ri­fy ye the ⟨Lord⟩ in the fires, even the name of the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩ of Is­ra­el in the isles of the sea.
  16. From the ut­ter­most part of the earth have we heard songs, even glo­ry to‍ ‍the righ­teous. But I said, My lean­ness, my lean­ness, woe un­to me! the treach­er­ous deal­ers have dealt treach­er­ous­ly; yea, the treach­er­ous have dealt very treacherously.
  17. Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are up­on thee, O‍ ‍in­hab­it­ant of the earth.
  18. And it shall come to pass, that he who fleeth from the noise of the fear shall fall in­to the pit; and he that com­eth up out of the midst of the pit shall be tak­en in the snare: for the win­dows from on high are open, and the foun­da­tions of the earth do shake.
  19. The earth is ut­ter­ly bro­ken down, the earth is clean dis­solved, the earth is moved exceedingly.
  20. The earth shall reel to and from like a drunk­ard, and shall be re­moved like a cot­tage; and the trans­gres­sion there­of shall be heavy up­on it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.•⟩
  21. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the ⟨Lord⟩ shall pun­ish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth up­on the earth.
  22. And they shall be gath­ered to­geth­er, as pris­on­ers are gath­ered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the pris­on, and af­ter ma­ny days shall they be visited.
  23. Then the moon shall be con­found­ed, and the sun ashamed, when the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Je­ru­sa­lem, and be­fore his an­cients gloriously.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍25 
  1. O‍ ‍⟨LORD⟩, THOU ART MY ⟨God⟩; I will ex­alt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done won­der­ful things; thy coun­sels of old are faith­ful­ness and truth.
  2. For thou hast made of a city an heap; of a‍ ‍de­fenced city a ruin: a pal­ace of stran­gers to be no city; it shall nev­er be built.
  3. Therefore shall the strong peo­ple glo­ri­fy thee, the city of the ter­ri­blena­tions shall fear thee.
  4. For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his dis­tress, a ref­uge from the storm, a shad­ow from the heat, when the blast of the ter­ri­ble ones is as a storm against the wall.
  5. Thou shalt bring down the noise of stran­gers, as the heat in a dry place; even the heat with the shad­ow of a cloud: the branch of the ter­ri­ble ones shall be brought low.
  6. And in this moun­tain shall the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts make un­to all peo­ple a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of mar­row, of wines on the lees well refined.
  7. And he will de­stroy in this moun­tain the face of the cov­er­ing cast over all peo­ple, and the vail that is spread over all nations.
  8. He will swal­low up death in‍ ‍vic­to­ry, and the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩ will wipe away tears from off all fac­es; and the re­buke of his peo­ple shall he take away from off all the earth: for the ⟨Lord⟩ hath spo­ken it.
  9. And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our ⟨God⟩; we have wait­ed for him, and he will save us: this is the ⟨Lord⟩; we have wait­ed for him, we will be glad and re­joice in his salvation.•⟩
  10. For in this moun­tain shall the hand of the ⟨Lord⟩ rest, and Mo­ab shall be trod­den down un­der him, even as straw is‍ ‍trod­den down for the dunghill.
  11. And he shall spread forth his hands in the midst of them, as he that swim­meth spread­eth forth his hands to swim: and he shall bring down their pride to­geth­er with the spoils of their hands.
  12. And the for­tress of the high fort of thy walls shall he bring down, lay low, and bring to the ground, even to the dust.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍26 
  1. IN THATDAY SHALL THIS song be sung in the land of Ju­dah; We have a strong city; sal­va­tion will God ap­point for walls and bulwarks.
  2. Open ye the gates, that the righ­teous na­tion which keep­eth the truth may en­ter in.
  3. Thou wilt keep him in per­fect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: be­cause he trust­eth in thee.
  4. Trust ye in the ⟨Lord⟩ for ever: for in the ⟨Lord⟩ JE-‍HO‍′‍-‍VAH is ever­last­ing strength:•⟩
  5. For he bring­eth down them that dwell on high; the lofty city, he lay­eth it low; he lay­eth it low, even to the ground; he bring­eth it even to the dust.
  6. The foot shall tread it down, even the feet of the poor, and the steps of the needy.
  7. The way of the just is up­right­ness: thou, most up­right, dost weigh the path of the just.
  8. Yea, in the way of thy judg­ments, O‍ ‍⟨Lord⟩, have we wait­ed for thee; the de­sire of our soul is to thy name, and to the re­mem­brance of thee.
  9. With my soul have I de­sired thee in the night; yea, with my spir­it with­in me will I seek thee ear­ly: for when thy judg­ments are in the earth, the in­hab­it­ants of the world will learn‍ ‍righteousness.•⟩
  10. Let fa­vour be shewed to the wick­ed, yet will he not learn righ­teous­ness: in the land of up­right­ness will he deal un­just­ly, and will not be­hold the maj­es­ty of the ⟨Lord⟩.
  11. ⟨Lord⟩, when thy hand is lift­ed up, they will not see: but they shall see, and be ashamed for their en­vy at the peo­ple; yea, the fire of thine en­e­mies shall de­vour them.
  12. ⟨Lord⟩, thou wilt or­dain peace for us: for thou al­so hast wrought all our works in us.
  13. O‍ ‍⟨Lord⟩ our ⟨God⟩, other(far less­er) lords be­side thee have had do­min­ion over us: butby thee on­ly‌will we make men­tion of thy‍ ‍name.
  14. They are dead, they shall not live; they are de­ceased, they shall not rise: there­fore hast thou vis­it­ed and de­stroyed them, and made all their mem­o­ry to perish.
  15. Thou hast in­creased the na­tion, O‍ ‍⟨Lord⟩, thou hast in­creased the na­tion: thou art glo­ri­fied: thou hadst re­moved it far un­to all the ends of the earth.
  16. ⟨Lord⟩, in trou­ble have they vis­it­ed thee, they poured out a pray­er when thy chas­ten­ing was up­on them.
  17. Like as a wom­an with child, that draw­eth near the time of her de­liv­ery, is in pain, and cri­eth out in her pangs; so have we been in thy sight, O‍ ‍⟨Lord⟩.
  18. We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought any de­liv­er­ance in the earth; nei­ther have the in­hab­it­ants of the world fallen.
  19. Thy dead men shall live, to­geth­er with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.
  20. Come, my peo­ple, en­ter thou in­to thy cham­bers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thy­self as it were for a lit­tle mo­ment, un­til the in­dig­na­tion be overpast.
  21. For, be­hold, the ⟨Lord⟩ com­eth out of his place to pun­ish the in­hab­it­ants of the earth for their iniquity; the earth al­so shall dis­close her blood, and shall no more cov­er her slain.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍27 
  1. IN THAT DAY THE ⟨Lord⟩ with his sore and great and strong sword shall pun­ish le-‍vi‍′‍-‍a-‍than the pierc­ing ser­pent, even le-‍vi‍′‍-‍a-‍than that crook­ed ser­pent; and he shall slay the drag­on that is in the sea.
  2. In that day sing ye un­to her, A‍ ‍vine­yard of red‍ ‍wine.
  3. I the ⟨Lord⟩ do keep it, I will wa­ter it ev­ery mo­ment: lest any hurt it, I will keep it night and day.
  4. Fury is not in me: who would set the bri­ers and thorns against me in bat­tle? I would go through them, I would burn them together.
  5. Or let him take hold of my strength, that he may make peace with me: and he shall make peace with me.
  6. He shall cause them that come of Ja­cob to take root: Is­ra­el shall blos­som and bud, and fill the face of the world with fruit.
  7. Hath he smit­ten him, as he smote those that smote him? or is he slain ac­cord­ing to the slaugh­ter of them that are slain by him?
  8. In meas­ure, when it shoot­eth forth, thou wilt de­bate with it: he stay­eth his rough wind in the day of the east wind.
  9. By this there­fore shall the in­iq­ui­ty of Ja­cob be purged; and this is all the fruit to take away his sin; when he mak­eth all the stones of the al­tar as chalk­stones that are beat­en in sun­der, the groves and im­ag­es shall not stand up.
  10. Yet the de­fenced city shall bedes­o­late,and the hab­i­ta­tion for­sak­en, and left like a wil­der­ness: there shall the calf feed, and there shall he lie down, and con­sume the branch­es thereof.
  11. When the boughs there­of are with­ered, they shall be bro­ken off: the wom­en come, and set them on fire: for it is a peo­ple of no un­der­stand­ing: there­fore he that made them will not have mer­cy on them, and he that formed them will shew them no favour.
  12. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the ⟨Lord⟩ shall beat off from the chan­nel of the riv­er un­to the stream of Egypt, and ye shall be gath­ered one by‍ ‍one, O‍ ‍ye chil­dren of Israel.
  13. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the great trum­pet shall be blown, and they shall come which were rea­dy to per­ish in the land of As­syr­ia, and the out­casts in the land of Egypt, and shall wor­ship the ⟨Lord⟩ in the holy mount at Jerusalem.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍28 
  1. WOE TO THE CROWN OF PRIDE, to the drunk­ards of E‍′‍-‍phra-‍im, whose glo­ri­ous beau­ty is a fad­ing flow­er, which are on the head of the fat val­leys of them that are over­come with‍ ‍wine!
  2. Behold, the ⟨Lord⟩ hath a migh­ty and strong one, which as a tem­pest of hail and a de­stroy­ing storm, as a flood of migh­ty wa­ters over­flow­ing, shall cast down to the earth with the hand.
  3. The crown of pride, the drunk­ards of E‍′‍-‍phra-‍im, shall be trod­den un­der feet:
  4. And the glo­ri­ous beau­ty, which is on the head of the fat val­ley, shall be a fad­ing flow­er, and as the hasty fruit be­fore the sum­mer; which when he that look­eth up­on it seeth, while it is yet in his hand he eat­eth it up.
  5. In that day shall the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts be for a crown of glo­ry, and for a di­a­dem of beau­ty, un­to the res­i­due of his people,
  6. And for a spir­it of judg­ment to him that sit­teth in judg­ment, and for strength to them that turn the bat­tle to the gate.
  7. But they al­so have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the proph­et have erred through strong drink, they are swal­lowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vi­sion, they stum­ble in judgment.
  8. For all ta­bles are full of vom­it and fil­thi­ness, so that there is no place clean.
  9. Whom shall he teach knowl­edge? and whom shall he make to un­der­stand doc­trine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.
  10. For pre­ceptmust be up­on pre­cept,pre­cept up­on pre­cept; line up­on line, line up­on line; here a lit­tle, and there a little;
  11. For with stam­mer­ing lips and an­oth­er tongue will he speak to this people.•⟩
  12. To whom he said, This is the rest where­with ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the re­fresh­ing: yet they would not hear.
  13. But the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ was un­to them pre­cept up­on pre­cept,pre­cept up­on pre­cept; line up­on line, line up­on line; here a lit­tle, and there a lit­tle; that they might go, and fall back­ward, and be bro­ken, and snared, and taken.
  14. Wherefore hear the word of the ⟨Lord⟩, ye scorn­ful men, that rule this peo­ple which is in Jerusalem.
  15. Because ye have said, We have made a cov­en­ant with death, and with hell are we at agree­ment; when the over­flow­ing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come un­to us: for we have made lies our ref­uge, and un­der false­hood have we hid ourselves.
  16. Therefore thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩, Be­hold, I lay in Zion for a foun­da­tion a stone, a tried stone, a pre­cious cor­ner stone, a sure foun­da­tion: he that be­liev­eth shall not make‍ ‍haste.
  17. Judgment al­so will I lay to the (plumb)­line, and righ­teous­ness to the plum­met: and the hail shall sweep away the ref­uge of lies, and the wa­ters shall over­flow the hid­ing place.
  18. And your cov­en­ant with death shall be dis­an­nulled, and your agree­ment with hell shall not stand; when the over­flow­ing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trod­den down by it.
  19. From the time that it go­eth forth it shall take you: for morn­ing by morn­ing shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vex­a­tion on­ly to un­der­stand the report.
  20. For the bed is short­er than that a man can stretch him­self on it: and the cov­er­ing nar­row­er than that he can wrap him­self (up)in it.
  21. For the ⟨Lord⟩ shall rise up as in mount Per‍′‍-‍a-‍zim, he shall be wroth as in the val­ley of Gib‍′‍-‍e-‍on, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange‍ ‍act.
  22. Now there­fore be ye not mock­ers, lest your bands be made strong: for I have heard from the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩ of hosts a con­sump­tion, even de­term­ined up­on the whole earth.
  23. Give ye ear, and hear my voice; heark­en, and hear my‍ ‍speech.
  24. Doth the plow­manplow all day (not) to sow? doth he (not) open and break the clods of his ground?
  25. When he hath made plain the face there­of, doth he not cast abroad the fitch­es, and scat­ter the cum­min, and cast in the prin­ci­pal wheat and the ap­point­ed bar­ley and the rie in their place?
  26. For his ⟨God⟩ doth in­struct him to dis­cre­tion, and doth teach him.
  27. For the fitch­es are not threshed with a thresh­ing in­stru­ment, nei­ther is a cart wheel turned about up­on the cum­min; but the fitch­es are beat­en out with a staff, and the cum­min with a rod.
  28. Bread corn(al­so) is bruised; be­cause he will not ever be thresh­ing it, nor break it with the wheel of his cart, nor bruise it with his horsemen.
  29. This al­so com­eth forth from the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts, which is‍ ‍won­der­ful in coun­sel, and ex­cel­lent in‍ ‍working.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍29 
  1. WOE TO A‍′‍-‍RI-‍EL, TO A‍′‍-‍RI-‍EL, the city where David dwelt! add ye year to;‍ ‍year; let them kill sacrifices.
  2. Yet I will dis­tress A‍′‍-‍ri-‍el, and there shall be heav­i­ness and sor­row: and it shall be un­to me as A‍′‍-‍ri-‍el.
  3. And I will camp against thee round about, and will lay siege against thee with a mount, and I will raise forts against thee.
  4. And thou shalt be brought down, and shalt speak out of the ground, and thy speech shall be low out of the dust, and thy voice shall be, as of one that hath a fa­mil­iar spir­it, out of the ground, and thy speech shall whis­per out of the dust.
  5. Moreover the mul­ti­tude of thy stran­gers shall be like small dust, and the mul­ti­tude of the ter­ri­ble ones shall be as chaff that pass­eth away: yea, it shall be at an in­stant suddenly.
  6. Thou shalt be vis­it­ed of the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts with thun­der, and with earth­quake, and great noise, with storm and tem­pest, and the flame of de­vour­ing fire.
  7. And the mul­ti­tude of all the na­tions that fight against A‍′‍-‍ri-‍el, even all that fight against her and her mu­ni­tion, and that dis­tress her, shall be as a dream of a night vision.
  8. It shall even be as‍ ‍when an hun­gry man dream­eth, and, be­hold, he eat­eth; but he awak­eth, and his soul is emp­ty: or as‍ ‍when a thirsty man dream­eth, and, be­hold, he drink­eth; but he awak­eth, and, be­hold, he is faint, and his soul hath ap­pe­tite: so shall the mul­ti­tude of all the na­tions be, that fight against mount Zion.
  9. Stay your­selves, and won­der; cry ye out, and cry: they are drunk­en, but not with wine; they stag­ger, but not with strong drink.
  10. For the ⟨Lord⟩ hath poured out up­on you the spir­it of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the proph­ets and your rul­ers, the seers hath he covered.
  11. And the vi­sion of all is be­come un­to you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men de­liv­er to one that is learned, say­ing, Read this, I pray thee: and he sa­ith, I can­not; for it is sealed:
  12. And the book is de­liv­ered to him that is not learned, say­ing, Read this, I pray thee: and he sa­ith, I am not learned.
  13. Wherefore the ⟨Lord⟩ said, For­as­much as this peo­ple draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do hon­our me, but have re­moved their heart far from me, and their fear to­ward me is taught by the pre­cept of men:
  14. Therefore, be­hold, I will pro­ceed to do a mar­vel­lous work among this peo­ple, even a mar­vel­lous work and a won­der: for the wis­dom of their wise men shall per­ish, and the un­der­stand­ing of their pru­dent men shall be hid.
  15. ⟨•Woe un­to them that seek deep to hide their coun­sel from the ⟨Lord⟩, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who know­eth us?
  16. Surely your turn­ing of things up­side down shall be es­teemed as the pot­ters clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?•⟩
  17. Is it not yet a‍ ‍very lit­tle while, and Leb‍′‍-‍a-‍non shall be turned in­to a fruit­ful field, and the fruit­ful field shall be es­teemed as a forest?
  18. ⟨•And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of ob­scu­ri­ty, and out of darkness.
  19. The meek al­so shall in­crease their joy in the ⟨Lord⟩, and the poor among men shall re­joice in the Holy One of Israel.•⟩
  20. For the ter­ri­ble one is brought to nought, and the scorn­er is con­sumed, and all that watch for‍ ‍in­iq­ui­ty are cut off:
  21. That make a man an of­fend­er for a word, and lay a snare for him that re­prov­eth in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of nought.
  22. Therefore thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩, who re­deemed Abra­ham, con­cern­ing the house of Ja­cob, Ja­cob shall not now be ashamed, nei­ther shall his face now wax pale.
  23. But when he seeth his chil­dren, the work of mine hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanc­ti­fy my name, and sanc­ti­fy the Holy One of Ja­cob, and shall fear the ⟨God⟩ of Israel.
  24. They al­so that erred in spir­it shall come to un­der­stand­ing, and they that mur­mured shall learn doctrine.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍30 
  1. WOE TO THE RE­BEL­LIOUS CHIL­DREN, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩, that take coun­sel, but not of me; and that cov­er with a cov­er­ing, but not of my spir­it, that they may add sin to sin:
  2. That walk to go down in­to Egypt, and have not asked at my mouth; to strength­en them­selves in the strength of Pharaoh, and to trust in the shad­ow of Egypt!
  3. Therefore shall the strength of Pharaoh be your shame, and the trust in the shad­ow of Egypt your confusion.
  4. For his princ­es were at Zo‍′‍-‍an, and his am­bas­sa­dors came to Ha‍′‍-‍nes.
  5. They were all ashamed of a peo­ple that could not prof­it them, nor be an help nor prof­it, but a shame, and al­so a reproach.
  6. The bur­den of the beasts of the south: in­to the land of trou­ble and an­guish, from whence come the young and old li­on, the vi­per and fiery fly­ing ser­pent, they will car­ry their rich­es up­on the shoul­ders of young ass­es, and their treas­ures up­on the bunch­es of cam­els, to a peo­ple that shall not prof­it them.
  7. For the Egyp­tians shall help in‍ ‍vain, and to no pur­pose: there­fore have I cried con­cern­ing this, Their strength is to sit still.
  8. No go, write it be­fore them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever:
  9. That this is a re­bel­lious peo­ple, ly­ing chil­dren, chil­dren that will not hear the law of the ⟨Lord⟩:
  10. Which say to the seers, See not; and to the proph­ets, Proph­e­sy not un­to us right things, speak un­to us smooth things, proph­e­sy‍ ‍deceits:
  11. Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Is­ra­el to cease from be­fore us.
  12. Wherefore thus sa­ith the Holy One of Is­ra­el, Be­cause ye de­spise this word, and trust in‍ ‍op­pres­sion and per­verse­ness, and stay‍ ‍thereon:
  13. Therefore this in­iq­ui­ty shall be to you as a breach rea­dy to fall, swell­ing out in a high wall, whose break­ing com­eth sud­den­ly at an instant.
  14. And he shall break it as the break­ing of the pot­ters’ ves­sel that is bro­ken in piec­es; he shall not spare: so that there shall not be found in the burst­ing of it a‍ ‍(pot)­sherd to take fire from the hearth, or to take wa­ter with­al out of the pit.
  15. For thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩, the Holy One of Is­ra­el; In re­turn­ing and rest shall ye be saved; in qui­et­ness and in con­fi­dence shall be your strength: and ye would not.
  16. But ye said, No; for we will flee up­on hors­es; there­fore shall ye flee: and, We will ride up­on the swift; there­fore shall they that pur­sue you be swift.
  17. One thou­sand shall flee at the re­buke of one; at the re­buke of five shall ye flee: till ye be left as a bea­con up­on the top of a moun­tain, and as an en­sign on an hill.
  18. And there­fore will the ⟨Lord⟩ wait, that he may be gra­cious un­to you, and there­fore will he be ex­alt­ed, that he may have mer­cy up­on you: for the ⟨Lord⟩ is a ⟨God⟩ of judg­ment: bless­ed are all they that wait for him.
  19. For the peo­ple shall dwell in Zion at Je­ru­sa­lem: thou shalt weep no more: he will be very gra­cious un­to thee at the voice of thy cry; when he shall hear it, he will an­swer thee.
  20. And though the ⟨Lord⟩ give you the bread of ad­vers­i­ty, and the wa­ter of af­flic­tion, yet shall not thy teach­ers be re­moved in­to a cor­ner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy‍ ‍teachers:
  21. And thine ears shall hear a‍ ‍word be­hind thee, say­ing, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.
  22. Ye shall de­file al­so the cov­er­ing of thy grav­en im­ag­es of sil­ver, and the or­na­ments of thy mol­ten im­ag­es of gold: thou shalt cast them away as a men­stru­ous cloth; thou shalt say un­to it, Get thee hence.
  23. Then shall he give the rain of thy seed, that thou shalt sow the ground with­al; and bread of the in­crease of the earth, and it shall be fat and plen­te­ous: in that day shall thy cat­tle feed in large pastures.
  24. The ox­en like­wise and the young ass­es that ear the ground shall eat clean pro­ven­der, which hath been win­nowed with the shov­el and with the fan.
  25. And there shall be up­on ev­ery high moun­tain, and up­on ev­ery high hill, riv­ers and streams of wa­ters in the day of the great slaugh­ter, when the tow­ers fall.
  26. Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sev­en­fold, as the light of sev­en days,•⟩ in the day that the ⟨Lord⟩ bind­eth up the breach of his peo­ple, and heal­eth the stroke of their‍ ‍wound.
  27. Behold, the name of the ⟨Lord⟩ com­eth from far, burn­ing with his an­ger, and the bur­den there­of is heavy: his lips are full of in­dig­na­tion, and his tongue as a de­vour­ing fire:
  28. And his breath, as an over­flow­ing stream, shall reach to the midst of the neck, to sift the na­tions with the sieve of van­i­ty: and there shall be a bri­dle in the jaws of the peo­ple, caus­ing them to err.
  29. Ye shall have a song, as in the night when a holy so­lem­ni­ty is kept; and glad­ness of heart, as when one go­eth with a pipe to come in­to the moun­tain of the ⟨Lord⟩, to the migh­ty One of Israel.
  30. And the ⟨Lord⟩ shall cause his glo­ri­ous voice to be heard, and shall shew the light­ing down of his arm, with the in­dig­na­tion of his an­ger, and with the flame of a de­vour­ing fire, with scat­ter­ing, and tem­pest, and hailstones.
  31. For through the voice of the ⟨Lord⟩ shall the As­syr­i­an be beat­en down, which smote with a rod.
  32. And in ev­ery place where the ground­ed staff shall pass, which the ⟨Lord⟩ shall lay up­on him, it shall be with ta­brets and harps: and in bat­tles of shak­ing will he fight with it.
  33. For To‍′‍-‍phet is or­dained of old; yea, for the king it is pre­pared; he hath made it deep and large: the pile there­of is fire and much wood; the breath of the ⟨Lord⟩, like a stream of brim­stone, doth kin­dle it.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍31 
  1. WOE TO THEM THAT GO DOWN to Egypt for help; and stay(up)­on hors­es, and trust in char­i­ots, be­cause they are ma­ny; and in horse­men, be­cause they are very strong; but they look not un­to the Holy One of Is­ra­el, nei­ther seek the ⟨Lord⟩!
  2. Yet he al­so is wise, and will bring evil, and will not call back his words: but will arise against the house of the evil­do­ers, and against the help of them that work‍ ‍iniquity.
  3. Now the Egyp­tians are men, and not ⟨God⟩; and their hors­es flesh, and not spir­it. When the ⟨Lord⟩ shall stretch out his hand, both he that help­eth shall fall, and he that is‍ ‍hol­pen shall fall down, and they all shall fail together.
  4. For thus hath the ⟨Lord⟩ spo­ken un­to me, Like as the li­on and the young li­on roar­ing on his prey, when a mul­ti­tude of shep­herds is called forth against him, he will not be afraid of their voice, nor abase him­self for the noise of them: so shall the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts come down to fight for mount Zion, and for the hill thereof.
  5. As birds fly­ing, so will the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts de­fend Je­ru­sa­lem; de­fend­ing al­so he will de­liv­er it; and pass­ing over he will pre­serve it.
  6. Turn ye un­to him from whom the chil­dren of Is­ra­el have deep­ly‍ ‍revolted.
  7. For in that day ev­ery man shall cast away his idols of sil­ver, and his idols of gold, which your own hands have made un­to you for a sin.
  8. Then shall the As­syr­i­an fall with the sword, not of a migh­ty man; and the sword, nor of a mean man, shall de­vour him: but he shall flee from the sword, and his young men shall be‍ ‍discomfited.
  9. And he shall pass over to his strong hold for fear, and his princ­es shall be afraid of the en­sign, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩, whose fire is in Zion, and his fur­nace in Jerusalem.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍32 
  1. BEHOLD, A KING SHALL REIGN in righ­teous­ness, and princ­es shall rule in‍ ‍judgment.
  2. And a man shall be as an hid­ing place from the wind, and a cov­ert from the tem­pest; as riv­ers of wa­ter in a dry place, as the shad­ow of a great rock in a‍ ‍weary‍ ‍land.
  3. And the eyes of them that see shall not be dim, and the ears of them that hear shall‍ ‍hearken.
  4. The heart al­so of the rash shall un­der­stand knowl­edge, and the tongue of the stam­mer­ers shall be rea­dy to speak plainly.
  5. The vile per­son shall be no more called lib­er­al, nor the churl said to be bountiful.
  6. For the vile per­son will speak vil­la­ny, and his heart will work iniquity, to prac­tice hy­poc­ri­sy, and to ut­ter er­ror against the ⟨Lord⟩, to make emp­ty the soul of the hun­gry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.
  7. The in­stru­ments al­so of the churlare evil: he de­vis­eth wick­ed de­vic­es to de­stroy the poor with ly­ing words, even when the needy speak­eth right.
  8. But the lib­er­al de­vis­eth lib­er­al things; and by lib­er­al things shall he stand.
  9. Rise up, ye wom­en that are at ease; hear my voice, ye care­less daugh­ters; give ear un­to my‍ ‍speech.
  10. Many days and years shall ye be trou­bled, ye care­less wom­en: for the vin­tage shall fail, the gath­er­ing shall not come.
  11. Tremble, ye wom­en that are at ease; be trou­bled, ye care­less ones: strip you‍‍(r­self), and make you‍‍(r­self) bare, and gird sack­cloth up­on your loins.
  12. They shall la­ment for the teats, for the pleas­ant fields, for the fruit­ful vine.
  13. Upon the land of my peo­ple shall come up thorns and bri­ers; yea, up­on all the hous­es of joy in the joy­ous city:
  14. Because the pal­ac­es shall be for­sak­en; the mul­ti­tude of the city shall be left; the forts and tow­ers shall be for dens for ever, a joy of wild ass­es, a pas­ture of flocks;
  15. Until the spir­it be poured up­on us from on high, and the wil­der­ness be a fruit­ful field, and the fruit­ful field be count­ed for a forest.
  16. Then judg­ment shall dwell in the wil­der­ness, and righ­teous­ness re­main in the fruit­ful field.
  17. And the work of‍ ‍righ­teous­ness shall be peace; and the ef­fect of‍ ‍righ­teous­ness quiet­ness and as­sur­ance for ever.
  18. And my peo­ple shall dwell in a peace­a­ble hab­i­ta­tion, and in sure dwell­ings, and in quiet rest­ing places;
  19. When it shall hail, com­ing down on the for­est; and the city shall be in a low place.
  20. Blessed are ye that sow be­side all wa­ters, that send forth thith­er the feet of the ox and the ass.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍33 
  1. WOE TO THEE THAT SPOIL­EST, and thou wast not spoiled; and deal­est treach­er­ous­ly, and they dealt not treach­er­ous­ly with thee! when thou shalt cease to spoil, thou shalt be spoiled;and when thou shalt make an end to deal treach­er­ous­ly, they shall deal treach­er­ous­ly with thee.
  2. O‍ ‍⟨Lord⟩, be gra­cious un­to us; we have wait­ed for thee: be thou their arm ev­ery morn­ing, our sal­va­tion al­so in the time of trouble.
  3. At the noise of the tu­mult the peo­ple fled; at the lift­ing up of thy­self the na­tions were scattered.
  4. And your spoil shall be gath­ered like the gath­er­ing of the cat­er­pil­ler: as the run­ning to and fro of lo­custs shall he run up­on them.
  5. The ⟨Lord⟩ is ex­alt­ed; for he dwell­eth on high: he hath filled Zion with judg­ment and righ­teous­ness.
  6. And wis­dom and knowl­edge shall be the sta­bil­i­ty of thy times, and strength of sal­va­tion: the fear of the ⟨Lord⟩ is his treasure.
  7. Behold, their val­iant ones shall cry with­out: the am­bas­sa­dors of peace shall weep bitterly.
  8. The high­ways lie waste, the way­far­ing man ceas­eth: he hath bro­ken the cov­en­ant, he hath de­spised the cit­ies, he re­gard­eth no man.
  9. The earth mourn­eth and lan­guish­eth: Leb‍′‍-‍a-‍non is ashamed and hewn down: Shar‍′‍-‍on is like a‍ ‍wil­der­ness; and Ba‍′‍-‍shan and Car­mel shake off their fruits.
  10. Now will I rise, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩; now will I be ex­alt­ed; now will I lift up myself.
  11. Ye shall con­ceive chaff, ye shall bring forth stub­ble: your breath, as fire, shall de­vour you.
  12. And the peo­ple shall be as the burn­ings of lime: as thorns cut up shall they be burned in the fire.
  13. Hear, ye that are far off, what I have done; and, ye that are near, ac­knowl­edge my‍ ‍might.
  14. The sin­ners in Zion are afraid; fear­ful­ness hath sur­prised the hyp­o­crites. Who among us shall dwell with the de­vour­ing fire? who among us shall dwell with ever­last­ing burnings?
  15. He that walk­eth righ­teous­ly, and speak­eth up­right­ly; he that de­spis­eth the gain of op­pres­sions, that shak­eth his hands from hold­ing of bribes, that stop­peth his ears from hear­ing of blood, and shut­teth his eyes from see­ing evil;
  16. He shall dwell on high: his place of de­fence shall be the mu­ni­tions of rocks: bread shall be giv­en him; his wa­ters shall be sure.
  17. Thine eyes shall see the king in his beau­ty: they shall be­hold the land that is‍ ‍very far off.•⟩
  18. Thine heart shall med­i­tate ter­ror. Where is the scribe? where is the re­ceiv­er? where is he that count­ed the towers?
  19. Thou shalt not see a fierce peo­ple, a peo­ple of a deep­er speech than thou canst per­ceive; of a‍ ‍stam­mer­ing tongue,that thou canst not understand.
  20. Look up­on Zion, the city of our sol­em­ni­ties: thine eyes shall see Je­ru­sa­lem a qui­et hab­i­ta­tion, a tab­er­na­cle that shall not be tak­en down; not one of the stakes there­of shall ever be re­moved, nei­ther shall any of the cords there­of be broken.
  21. But there the glo­ri­ous ⟨Lord⟩ will be un­to us a place of broad riv­ers and streams; where­in shall go no gal­ley with oars, nei­ther shall (any oth­er) gal­lant ship pass thereby.
  22. For the ⟨Lord⟩ is our judge, the ⟨Lord⟩ is our law­giv­er, the ⟨Lord⟩ is our king; he will save us.
  23. Thy tack­lings are loosed; they could not well strength­en their mast, they could not spread the sail: then is the prey of a great spoil di­vid­ed; the lame take the prey.
  24. And the in­hab­it­ant shall not say, I am sick: the peo­ple that dwell there­in shall be for­giv­en their‍ ‍iniquity.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍34 
  1. COME NEAR, YENA­TIONS, to hear; and heark­en, ye peo­ple: let the earth hear, and all that is there­in; the world, and all things that come forth of it.
  2. For the in­dig­na­tion of the ⟨Lord⟩ is up­on all na­tions, and his fu­ry up­on all their ar­mies: he hath ut­ter­ly de­stroyed them, he hath de­liv­ered them to the slaughter.
  3. Their slain al­so shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their car­cas­es, and the moun­tains shall be melt­ed with their blood.
  4. And all the host of‍ ‍(the sec­ond) heav­en shall be dis­solved, and the (first two) heav­ens shall be rolled to­geth­er as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down,•⟩ as the leaf fall­eth off from the vine, and as a fall­ing fig from the fig tree.
  5. For my sword shall be bathed in‍ ‍(the third) heav­en: be­hold, it shall come down up­on Id-‍u-‍me‍′‍-‍a, and up­on the peo­ple of my curse, to judgment.
  6. The sword of the ⟨Lord⟩ is filled with blood, it is made fat with fat­ness, and with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kid­neys of rams: for the ⟨Lord⟩ hath a sac­ri­fice in Boz‍′‍-‍rah, and a great slaugh­ter in the land of Id-‍u-‍me‍′‍-‍a.
  7. And the uni­corns shall come down with them, and the bull­ocks with the bulls; and their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness.
  8. For it is the day of the ⟨Lords⟩ ven­geance, and the year of rec­om­penc­es for the con­tro­ver­sy of Zion.
  9. And the streams there­of shall be turned in­to pitch, and the dust there­of in­to brim­stone, and the land there­of shall be­come burn­ing‍ ‍pitch,
  10. It shall not be quenched night nor day; the smoke there­of shall go up for ever: from gen­er­a­tion to gen­er­a­tion it shall lie waste; none shall pass through it for ever and ever.
  11. But the cor­mor­ant and the bit­tern shall poss­ess it; the owl al­so and the ra­ven shall dwell in it: and he shall stretch out up­on it the line of con­fu­sion, and the stones of emptiness.•⟩
  12. They shall call the no­bles there­of to the king­dom, but none shall be there, and all her princ­es shall be nothing.
  13. And thorns shall come up in her pal­ac­es, net­tles and bram­bles in the for­tress­es there­of: and it shall be an hab­i­ta­tion of‍ ‍drag­ons,and a court for owls.
  14. The wild beasts of the des­ert shall al­so meet with the wild beasts of the is­land, and the sa­tyr shall cry to his fel­low; the screech owl al­so shall rest there, and find for her­self a place of rest.
  15. There shall the great owl make her nest, and lay, and hatch, and gath­er (her young ones) un­der her shad­ow: there shall the vul­tures al­so be gath­ered, ev­ery one with her mate.
  16. Seek ye out of the book of the ⟨Lord⟩, and read: no‍(t) one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath com­mand­ed, and his spir­it hath gath­ered them.
  17. And he hath cast the lot for them, and his hand hath di­vid­ed it un­to them by line: they shall pos­sess it for ever, from gen­er­a­tion to gen­er­a­tion shall they dwell therein.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍35 
  1. THE WIL­DER­NESS AND THE SOL­I­TARY place shall be glad for them; and the des­ert shall re­joice, and blos­som as the rose.‍ ‍[]

  1. It shall blos­som abun­dant­ly, and re­joice even with joy and sing­ing: the glo­ry of Leb‍′‍-‍a-‍non shall be giv­en un­to it, the ex­cel­len­cy of our ⟨God⟩.
  2. Strengthen ye the weak hands, and con­firm the fee­ble knees.
  3. Say to them that are of a fear­ful heart, Be strong, fear not: be­hold, your ⟨God⟩ will come with ven­geance, even ⟨God⟩with a rec­om­pence; he will come and save you.
  4. Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
  5. Then shall the lame man leap as an‍ ‍hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wil­der­ness shall wa­ters break out, and streams in the desert.
  6. And the parched ground shall be­come a pool, and the thirsty land springs of wa­ter: in the hab­i­ta­tion of‍ ‍drag­ons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes.
  7. And an high­way shall be there, and a‍ ‍way, and it shall be called The way of holi­ness; the un­clean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the way­far­ing men, though fools, shall not err therein.
  8. No li­on shall be there, nor any rav­en­ous beast shall go up there­on, it shall not be found there; but the re­deemed shall walk there:
  9. And the ran­somed of the ⟨Lord⟩ shall re­turn, and come to Zion with songs and ever­last­ing joy up­on their heads: they shall ob­tain joy and glad­ness, and sor­row and sigh­ing shall flee away.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍36 
  1. NOW IT CAME TO PASS in the four­teenth year of king Hez-‍e-‍ki‍′‍-‍ah, that Sen-‍nach‍′‍-‍e-‍rib king of As­syr­ia came up against all the de­fenced cit­ies of Ju­dah, and took them.
  2. And the king of As­syr­ia sent Rab‍′‍-‍sha-‍keh from La‍′‍-‍chish to Je­ru­sa­lem un­to king Hez-‍e-‍ki‍′‍-‍ah with a great ar­my. And he stood by‍ ‍the con­du­it of the up­per pool in the high­way of the full­ers field.
  3. Then came forth un­to him E-‍li‍′‍-‍a-‍kim, Hil-‍ki‍′‍-‍ahs son, which was over the house, and Sheb‍′‍-‍na the scribe, and Jo‍′‍-‍ah, A‍′‍-‍saphs son, the recorder.
  4. And Rab‍′‍-‍sha-‍keh said un­to them, Say ye now to Hez-‍e-‍ki‍′‍-‍ah, Thus sa­ith the great king, the king of As­syr­ia, What con­fi­dence is this where­in thou trustest?
  5. I say, say­est thou, (but they are butvain words) I have coun­sel and strength for war: now on‍ ‍whom dost thou trust, that thou re­bell­est against me.
  6. Lo, thou trust­est in the staff of this bro­ken reed, on Egypt; where­on if a man lean, it will go in­to his hand, and pierce it: so is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all that trust in him.
  7. But if thou say to me, We trust in the ⟨Lord⟩ our ⟨God⟩: is it not he, whose high plac­es and whose al­tars Hez-‍e-‍ki‍′‍-‍ah hath tak­en away, and said to Ju­dah and to Je­ru­sa­lem, Ye shall wor­ship be­fore this altar?
  8. Now there­fore give pledg­es, I pray thee, to my mas­ter the king of As­syr­ia, and I will give thee two thou­sand hors­es, if thou be able on thy part to set rid­ers up­on them.
  9. How then wilt thou turn away the face of one cap­tain of the least of my mas­ters serv­ants, and put thy trust on Egypt for char­i­ots and for horsemen?
  10. And am I now come up with­out the ⟨Lord⟩ against this land to de­stroy‍ ‍it? the ⟨Lord⟩ said un­to me, Go up against this land, and de­stroy‍ ‍it.
  11. Then said E-‍li‍′‍-‍a-‍kim and Sheb‍′‍-‍na and Jo‍′‍-‍ah un­to Rab‍′‍-‍sha-‍keh, Speak, I pray thee, un­to thy serv­ants in the Syr­i­an lan­guage; for we un­der­stand it: and speak not to us in the Jews’ lan­guage, in the ears of the peo­ple that are on the‍ ‍wall.
  12. But Rab‍′‍-‍sha-‍keh said, Hath my mas­ter sent me to thy mas­ter and to thee to speak these words? hath he not sent me to the men that sit up­on the wall, they they may eat their own dung, and drink their own piss with‍ ‍you?
  13. Then Rab‍′‍-‍sha-‍keh stood, and cried with a loud voice in the Jews’ lan­guage, and said, Hear ye the words of the great king, the king of Assyria.
  14. Thus sa­ith the king, Let not Hez-‍e-‍ki‍′‍-‍ah de­ceive you; for he shall not be able to de­liv­er you.
  15. Neither let Hez-‍e-‍ki‍′‍-‍ah make you trust in the ⟨Lord⟩, say­ing, The ⟨Lord⟩ will sure­ly de­liv­er us: this city shall not be de­liv­ered in­to the hand of the king of Assyria.
  16. Hearken not to Hez-‍e-‍ki‍′‍-‍ah: for thus sa­ith the king of As­syr­ia, Make an agree­ment with me by‍ ‍a pres­ent, and come out to me: and eat ye ev­ery one of his vine, and ev­ery one of his fig tree, and drink ye ev­ery one the wa­ters of his own cistern;
  17. Until I come and take you away to a land like your own land, a land of corn and wine, a land of bread and vineyards.
  18. Beware lest Hez-‍e-‍ki‍′‍-‍ah per­suade you, say­ing, The ⟨Lord⟩ will de­liv­er us. Hath any of the gods of the na­tions de­liv­ered his land out of the hand of the king of Assyria?
  19. Where are the gods of Ha‍′‍-‍math and Ar‍′‍-‍phad? where are the gods of Seph-‍ar-‍va‍′‍-‍im? and have they de­liv­ered Sa-‍ma‍′‍-‍ri-‍a out of my hand?
  20. Who are they among all the gods of these lands, that have de­liv­ered their land out of my hand, that the ⟨Lord⟩ should de­liv­er Je­ru­sa­lem out of my hand?
  21. But they held their peace, and an­swered him not a word: for the kings com­mand­ment was, say­ing, An­swer him not.
  22. Then came E-‍li‍′‍-‍a-‍kim, the son of Hil-‍ki‍′‍-‍ah, that was over the house­hold, and Sheb‍′‍-‍na the scribe, and Jo‍′‍-‍ah, the son of A‍′‍-‍saph, the re­cord­er, to Hez-‍e-‍ki‍′‍-‍ah with their clothes rent, and told him the words of Rab‍′‍-‍sha-‍keh.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍37 
  1. AND IT CAME TO PASS, when king Hez-‍e-‍ki‍′‍-‍ah heard it, that he rent his clothes, and cov­ered him­self with sack­cloth, and went in­to the house of the ⟨Lord⟩.
  2. And he sent E-‍li‍′‍-‍a-‍kim, who was over the house­hold, and Sheb‍′‍-‍na the scribe, and the el­ders of the priests cov­ered with sack­cloth, un­to Isai­ah the proph­et the son of Amoz.
  3. And they said un­to him, Thus sa­ith Hez-‍e-‍ki‍′‍-‍ah, This day is a day of trou­ble, and of re­buke, and of blas­phe­my: for the chil­dren are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth.
  4. Then the an­gel of the ⟨Lord⟩ went forth, and smote in the camp of the As­syr­i­ans a‍(n) hun­dred and four score and five thou­sand: and when they arose ear­ly in the morn­ing, be­hold, they were all dead corpses‍.[185,000]
  5. So Sen-‍nach‍′‍-‍e-‍rib king of‍ ‍As­syr­ia de­part­ed, and went and re­turned, and dwelt at Nin‍′‍-‍e-‍veh.
  6. And it came to pass, as he was wor­ship­ping in the house of Nis‍′‍-‍roch his god, that A-‍dram‍′‍-‍me-‍lech and Sha-‍re‍′‍-‍zer his sons smote him with the sword; and they es­caped in­to the land of Ar-‍me‍′‍-‍ni-‍a: and E‍′‍-‍sar–‍had‍′‍-‍don his son reigned in his stead.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍38 
  1. IN THOSE DAYS WAS HEZ-‍E-‍KI‍′‍-‍AH sick un­to death. And Isai­ah the proph­et the son of Amoz came un­to him, and said un­to him, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩, Set thine house in or­der: for thou shalt die, and not live.
  2. Then Hez-‍e-‍ki‍′‍-‍ah turned his face to­ward the wall, and prayed un­to the ⟨Lord⟩,
  3. And said, Re­mem­ber now, O‍ ‍⟨Lord⟩, I be­seech thee, how I have walked be­fore thee in truth and with a per­fect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Hez-‍e-‍ki‍′‍-‍ah wept‍ ‍sore.
  4. Then came the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ to Isai­ah, saying,
  5. Go, and say to Hez-‍e-‍ki‍′‍-‍ah, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩, the ⟨God⟩ of David thy fa­ther, I have heard thy pray­er, I have seen thy tears: be­hold, I will add un­to thy days fif­teen years.
  6. And I will de­liv­er thee and this city out of the hand of the king of As­syr­ia: and I will de­fend this city.
  7. And this shall be a sign un­to thee from the ⟨Lord⟩, that the ⟨Lord⟩ will do this thing that he hath spoken;
  8. Behold, I will bring again the shad­ow of the de­grees, which is gone down in the sun dial of Ahaz, ten de­grees back­ward. So the sun re­turned ten de­grees, by‍ ‍which de­grees it was gone down.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍39 
  1. AT THAT TIME ME-‍RO‍′‍-‍DACH–‍BAL‍′‍-‍A-‍DAN, the son of Bal‍′‍-‍a-‍dan, king of Bab­y­lon, sent let­ters and a pres­ent to Hez-‍e-‍ki‍′‍-‍ah: for he had heard that he had been sick, and was recovered.
  2. And Hez-‍e-‍ki‍′‍-‍ah was glad of them, and shewed them the house of his pre­cious things, the sil­ver, and the gold, and the spic­es, and the pre­cious oint­ment, and all the house of his ar­mour, and all that was found in his treas­ures: there was noth­ing in his house, nor in all his do­min­ion, that Hez-‍e-‍ki‍′‍-‍ah shewed them not.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍40 
  1. COM­FORT YE, COM­FORT YE MY peo­ple, sa­ith your ⟨God⟩.
  2. Speak ye com­fort­ab­ly to Je­ru­sa­lem, and cry un­to her, that her war­fare is ac­com­plished, that her in­iq­ui­ty is par­doned: for she hath re­ceived of the ⟨Lords⟩ hand dou­ble for all her sins.
  3. The voice of him that cri­eth in the wil­der­ness, Pre­pare ye the way of the ⟨Lord⟩, make straight in the des­ert a high­way for our ⟨God⟩.•⟩
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍41 
  1. KEEP SILENCE BEFORE ME, O‍ ‍is­lands; and let the peo­ple re­new their strength: let them come near; then let them speak: let us come near to­geth­er to judgment.
  2. Who raised up the righ­teousman from the east, called him to his foot, gave the na­tions be­fore him, and made him rule over kings? he gave them as the dust to his sword, and as driv­en stub­ble to his bow.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍42 
  1. BEHOLD MY SERV­ANT, WHOM I up­hold; mine elect, in whom my soul de­light­eth; I have put my spir­it up­on him: he shall bring forth judg­ment to the Gentiles.
  2. He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.
  3. A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smok­ing flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judg­ment un­to truth.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍43 
  1. BUT NOW THUS SA­ITH THE⟨Lord⟩ that cre­at­ed thee, O‍ ‍Ja­cob, and he that formed thee, O‍ ‍Is­ra­el, Fear not: for I have re­deemed thee, I have called thee by‍ ‍thy name; thou art mine.
  2. When thou pass­est through the wa­ters, I will be with thee; and through the riv­ers, they shall not over­flow thee: when thou walk­est through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; nei­ther shall the flame kin­dle up­on thee.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍44 
  1. YET NOW HEAR, O‍ ‍JA­COB my serv­ant; and Is­ra­el, whom I have chosen:
  2. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ that made thee, and formed thee from the womb, which will help thee; Fear not, O‍ ‍Ja­cob, my serv­ant; and thou, Jes‍′‍-‍u-‍run, whom I have chosen.
  3. For I will pour wa­ter up­on him that is thirsty, and floods up­on the dry ground: I will pour my spir­it up­on thy seed, and my bless­ing up­on thine offspring:
  4. And they shall spring up as among the grass, as wil­lows by the wa­ter courses.
  5. One shall say, I am the ⟨Lords⟩; and an­oth­er shall call him­self by the name of Ja­cob; and an­oth­er shall sub­scribe with his hand un­to the ⟨Lord⟩, and sur­name him­self by the name of Israel.
  6. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ the King of Is­ra­el, and his re­deem­er the ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and be­side me there is no‍ ‍(oth­er)‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  7. And who, as I, shall call, and shall de­clare it, and set it in order for me, since I ap­point­ed the an­cient peo­ple? and the things that are com­ing, and shall come, let them shew un­to them.
  8. Fear ye not, nei­ther be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have de­clared it? ye are even my wit­ness­es. Is there a ⟨God⟩ be­side me? yea, there is no‍ (oth­er)⟨God⟩; I know not any.
  9. ⟨•They that make a grav­en im­age are all of them van­i­ty; and their de­lect­a­ble things shall not prof­it (them); and they are their own wit­ness­es; they see not, nor know; that they may be ashamed.
  10. Who hath formed a‍ ‍god, or grav­en im­age that is prof­it­able for nothing?
  11. Behold, all his fel­lows shall be ashamed; and the work­men, they are of men: let them all be gath­ered to­geth­er, let them stand up; yet they shall fear, and they shall be ashamed together.
  12. The smith with the tongs both work­eth in the coals, and fash­ion­eth it with ham­mers, and work­eth it with the strength of his arms: yea, he is hun­gry, and his strength fail­eth: he drink­eth no wa­ter, and is faint.
  13. The car­pen­ter stretch­eth out his rule; he mark­eth it out with a line; he fit­teth it with planes, and he mark­eth it af­ter the fig­ure of a man, ac­cord­ing to the beau­ty of a man; that it may re­main in the house.
  14. He hew­eth him down ce­dars, and tak­eth the cy­press and the oak, which he strength­en­eth for him­self among the trees of the for­est: he plant­eth an ash, and the rain doth nour­ish it.
  15. Then shall it be for a man to burn: for he will take there­of, and warm him­self; yea, he kin­dl­eth it; he mak­eth a‍ ‍god, and wor­ship­peth it; he mak­eth it a grav­en im­age, and fall­eth down thereto.
  16. He burn­eth part there­of in the fire; with part there­of he eat­eth flesh; he roast­eth roast, and is sat­is­fied: yea, he warm­eth him­self, and sa­ith, Aha, I am warm, I have seen the fire:
  17. And (from) the res­i­due there­of he mak­eth a god, even his grav­en im­age: he fall­eth down un­to it, and wor­ship­peth it, and pray­eth un­to it, and sa­ith, De­liv­er me; for thou art my god.
  18. They have not known nor un­der­stood: for he hath shut their eyes, that they can­not see; and their hearts, that they can­not understand.
  19. And none con­sid­er­eth in his heart, nei­ther is there knowl­edge nor un­der­stand­ing to say, I have burned part of it in the fire; yea, al­so I have baked bread up­on the coals there­of; I have roast­ed flesh, and eat­en it: and shall I make (from) the res­i­due there­of an abom­i­na­tion? shall I fall down to the stock of a tree?
  20. He feed­eth on ash­es: a de­ceived heart hath turned him aside, that he can­not de­liv­er his soul, nor say, Is there not a lie in my right hand?•⟩(See Also: Isaiah 2:8-9)
  21. Remember these, O‍ ‍Ja­cob and Is­ra­el; for thou art my serv­ant: O‍ ‍Is­ra­el, thou shalt not be for­got­ten of me.
  22. I have blot­ted out, as a thick cloud, thy trans­gres­sions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: re­turn un­to me; for I have re­deemed thee.
  23. Sing, O‍ ‍ye heav­ens; for the ⟨Lord⟩ hath done it: shout, ye low­er parts of the earth: break forth in­to sing­ing, ye moun­tains, O‍ ‍for­est, and ev­ery tree there­in: for the ⟨Lord⟩ hath re­deemed Ja­cob, and glo­ri­fied him­self in Israel.
  24. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩, thy re­deemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the ⟨Lord⟩ that mak­eth all things; that stretch­eth forth the heav­ens alone; that spread­eth abroad the earth by myself;•⟩
  25. That frus­trat­eth the to­kens of the li­ars, and mak­eth di­vin­ers mad; that turn­eth wise men back­ward, and mak­eth their knowl­edge foolish;
  26. That con­firm­eth the word of his serv­ant, and per­form­eth the coun­sel of his mes­sen­gers; that sa­ith to Je­ru­sa­lem, Thou shalt be in­hab­it­ed; and to the cit­ies of Ju­dah,Ye shall be built, and I will raise up the de­cayed plac­es thereof:
  27. That sa­ith to the deep, Be dry, and I will dry up thy‍ ‍rivers:
  28. That sa­ith of Cy­rus, He is my shep­herd, and shall per­form all my pleas­ure: even say­ing to Je­ru­sa­lem, Thou shalt be built; and to the tem­ple, Thy foun­da­tion shall be laid.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍45 
  1. THUS SA­ITH THE ⟨Lord⟩ TO HIS anoint­ed, to Cy­rus, whose right hand I have hold­en, to sub­due na­tions be­fore him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open be­fore him the two‍-‍leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut;
  2. I will go be­fore thee, and make the crook­ed plac­es straight: I will break in piec­es the gates of brass, and cut in sun­der the bars of iron:
  3. And ⟨•I will give thee the treas­ures of‍ (the “)‍darkness,()and hid­den rich­es of se­cret plac­es, that thou may­est know that I, the ⟨Lord⟩, which call thee by thy name, am the ⟨God⟩ of Is­ra­el.•⟩
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍46 
  1. BEL BOWETH DOWN, NE‍′‍-‍BO stoop­eth, their idols were up­on the beasts, and up­on the cat­tle: your car­riag­es were heavy load­en;(sic)they are a bur­den to the weary beast.
  2. They stoop, they bow down to­geth­er; they could not de­liv­er the bur­den, but them­selves are gone in­to captivity.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍47 
  1. COME DOWN, AND SIT IN‍ ‍the dust, O‍ ‍vir­gin daugh­ter of Bab­y­lon, sit on the ground: there is no throne, O‍ ‍daugh­ter of the Chal-‍de‍′‍-‍ans: for thou shalt no more be called ten­der and‍ ‍delicate.
  2. Take the mill­stones, and grind meal: un­cov­er thy locks, make bare the leg, un­cov­er the thigh, pass over the rivers.
  3. Thy na­ked­ness shall be un­cov­ered, yea, (and un­der­neath) thy shame shall be seen: I will take ven­geance, and I will not meet thee as a man.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍48 
  1. HEAR YE THIS, O‍ ‍HOUSE of Ja­cob, which are called by the name of Is­ra­el, and are come forth out of the wa­ters of Ju­dah, which swear by the name of the ⟨Lord⟩, and make men­tion of the ⟨God⟩ of Is­ra­el, but not in truth, nor in‍ ‍righ­teous­ness.
  2. For they call them­selves of the holy city, and stay them­selves up­on the ⟨God⟩ of Is­ra­el; The ⟨Lord⟩ of hosts is his name.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍49 
  1. LISTEN, O‍ ‍ISLES, UN­TO ME; and heark­en, ye peo­ple, from far; The ⟨Lord⟩ hath called me from the womb; from the bow­els of my moth­er hath he made men­tion of my‍ ‍name.
  2. And he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shad­ow of his hand hath he hid me, and made me a pol­ished shaft; in his quiv­er hath he hid me;
  3. And said un­to me, Thou art my serv­ant, O‍ ‍Is­ra­el, in whom I will be glorified.
  4. Then I said, I have la­boured in‍ ‍vain, I have spent my strength for nought, and in‍ ‍vain: yet sure­ly my judg­ment is with the ⟨Lord⟩, and my work with my‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍50 
  1. THUS SA­ITH THE ⟨Lord⟩, where is the bill of your moth­ers di­vorce­ment, whom I have put away? or which of my cred­it­ors is it to whom I have sold you? Be­hold, for your in­iq­ui­ties have ye sold your­selves, and for your trans­gres­sions is your moth­er put away.
  2. Wherefore, when I came, was there no man? when I called, was there none to an­swer? Is my hand short­ened at all, that it can­not re­deem? or have I no pow­er to de­liv­er? be­hold, at my re­buke I dry up the sea, I make the riv­ers a wil­der­ness: their fish stink­eth, be­cause there is no wa­ter, and di­eth for thirst.
  3. I clothe the (first two) heav­ens with black­ness, and I make sack­cloth their covering.
  4. Who is among you that fear­eth the ⟨Lord⟩, that obey­eth the voice of his serv­ant, that walk­eth in dark­ness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the ⟨Lord⟩, and stay up­on his ⟨God⟩.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍51 
  1. HEARKEN TO ME, YE THAT fol­low af­ter righ­teous­ness, ye that seek the ⟨Lord⟩: look un­to the rock (from)whence ye are digged.
  2. Look un­to Abra­ham your fa­ther, and un­to Sar­ah that bare you: for I called him alone, and blessed him, and in­creased him.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍52 
  1. AWAKE, AWAKE; PUT ON thy strength, O‍ ‍Zion; put on thy beau­ti­ful gar­ments, O‍ ‍Je­ru­sa­lem, the holy city: for hence­forth there shall no more come in­to thee the un­cir­cum­cised and the unclean.
  2. Shake thy­self from the dust; arise, and sit down, O‍ ‍Je­ru­sa­lem: loose thy­self from the bands of thy neck, O‍ ‍cap­tive daugh­ter of Zion.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍53 
  1. WHO HATH BE­LIEVED OUR re­port? and to whom is the arm of the ⟨Lord⟩ revealed?
  2. For he shall grow up be­fore him as a ten­der plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor come­li­ness; and when we shall see him, there is no beau­ty that we should de­sire him.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍54 
  1. SING, O‍ ‍BARREN, THOU THAT didst not bear; break forth in­to sing­ing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not tra­vail with child: for more are the chil­dren of the des­o­late than the chil­dren of the mar­ried wife, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩.
  2. Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the cur­tains of thine hab­i­ta­tions: spare not, length­en thy cords, and strength­en thy‍ ‍stakes;
  3. 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 righ­teous­nessis of me, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩.•⟩
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍55 
  1. HO, EV­ERY ONE THAT THIRST­ETH, come ye to the wa­ters, and he that hath no mon­ey; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk with­out mon­ey and with­out price.
  2. Where­fore do ye spend mon­ey for that which is not bread? and your la­bour for that which sat­is­fi­eth not? heark­en dil­i­gent­ly un­to me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul de­light it­self in fatness.
  3. So shall my word be that go­eth forth out of my mouth: it shall not re­turn un­to me void, but it shall ac­com­plish that which I please, and it shall pros­per in the thing where­to I sent it.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍56 
  1. THUS SA­ITH THE ⟨Lord⟩,Keep ye judg­ment, and do jus­tice: for my sal­va­tion is near to come, and my righ­teous­ness(is al­so near) to be revealed.
  2. Blessed is the man that do­eth this, and the son of man that lay­eth hold on it; that keep­eth the sab­bath from pol­lut­ing it, and keep­eth his hand from do­ing any‍ ‍evil.•⟩
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍57 
  1. ⟨•THE RIGH­TEOUS PERISHETH, and no man lay­eth it to heart: and mer­ci­ful men are tak­en away, none con­sid­er­ing that the righ­teous is tak­en away from the evil to come.
  2. He shall en­ter in­to peace: they shall rest in their beds, each one walk­ing in his uprightness.•⟩
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍58 
  1. CRY ALOUD, SPARE NOT, lift up the voice like a trum­pet, and shew my peo­ple their trans­gres­sion, and the house of Ja­cob their sins.
  2. Yet they seek me dai­ly, and de­light to know my ways, as (though they were) a na­tion that did righ­teous­ness, and for­sook not the or­di­nance‍(s) of their ⟨God⟩: (still) they ask of me the or­di­nanc­es of jus­tice; (and) they take (de­lud­ed) de­light in ap­proach­ing to ⟨God⟩.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍59 
  1. BEHOLD, THE ⟨Lords⟩ HAND is not short­ened, that it can­not save; nei­ther his ear heavy, that it can­not hear:
  2. But your in­iq­ui­ties have sep­a­rat­ed be­tween you and your ⟨God⟩, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍60 
  1. ⟨•ARISE, SHINE; FOR THY LIGHT is come, and the glo­ry of the ⟨Lord⟩ is ris­en up­on thee.
  2. For, be­hold, the dark­ness shall cov­er the earth, and gross dark­ness the peo­ple: but the ⟨Lord⟩ shall arise up­on thee, and his glo­ry shall be seen up­on thee.•⟩
  3. And the Gen­tiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the bright­ness of thy‍ ‍rising.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍61 
  1. THE SPIRIT OF THE⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩ is up­on me; be­cause the ⟨Lord⟩ hath anoint­ed me to preach good tid­ings un­to the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the bro­ken­heart­ed, to pro­claim lib­er­ty to the cap­tives, and the open­ing of the pris­on to them that are bound;
  2. To pro­claim the ac­cept­a­ble year of the ⟨Lord⟩, and the day of ven­geance of our ⟨God⟩; to com­fort all that mourn;
  3. I will great­ly re­joice in the ⟨Lord⟩, my soul shall be joy­ful in my ⟨God⟩; for he hath clothed me with the gar­ments of sal­va­tion, he hath cov­ered me with the robe of righ­teous­ness, as a bride­groom deck­eth him­self with or­na­ments, and as a bride adorn­eth her­self with her jewels.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍62 
  1. FOR ZI­ONS SAKE WILL I NOT hold my peace, and for Je­ru­sa­lems sake I will not rest, un­til the righ­teous­ness there­of go‍(eth) forth as bright­ness, and the sal­va­tion there­of as a lamp that burneth.
  2. And the Gen­tiles shall see thy righ­teous­ness, and all kings thy glo­ry: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the ⟨Lord⟩ shall name.
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍63 
  1. WHO IS THIS THAT COM­ETH from E‍′‍-‍dom, with dyed gar­ments from Boz‍′‍-‍rah? this (one)that is glo­ri­ous in his ap­par­el, tra­vel­ling in the great­ness of his strength? I that speak in righ­teous­ness, migh­ty to save.
  2. Where­foreart thou red in thine ap­par­el, and thy gar­ments like him that tread­eth in the winefat?
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍64 
  1. OH THAT THOU WOULD­EST RENDthe (first & sec­ond) heav­ens, that the moun­tains might flow down at thy presence,
  2. As when the melt­ing fire burn­eth, the fire caus­eth the wa­ters to boil, to make thy name known to thine ad­ver­sa­ries, that the na­tions may trem­ble at thy‍ ‍presence!
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍65 
  1. IAM SOUGHTOFTHEM THAT asked not for me; I am found of‍ ‍them that sought me not: I said, Be­hold me, be­hold me, un­to a na­tion that was not called by my‍ ‍name.
  2. I have spread out my hands all the day un­to a re­bel­lious peo­ple, which walk­eth in a‍ ‍waythat was not good, af­ter their own thoughts;
Isaiah‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍66 
  1. THUS SA­ITH THE ⟨Lord⟩, The (third) heav­en is my throne, and the earth is my foot­stool: where is the house that ye build un­to me? and where is the place of my rest?
  2. For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a con­trite spir­it, and trem­bleth at my word.
  3. He that kill­eth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sac­ri­fic­eth a lamb, as if he cut off a dogs neck; he that of­fer­eth an obla­tion, as if he of­fered swines blood; he that burn­eth in­cense, as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have cho­sen their own ways, and their soul de­light­eth in their abominations.
  4. I al­so will choose their de­lu­sions, and will bring their fears up­on them; be­cause when I called, none did an­swer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil be­fore mine eyes, and chose that in which I de­light­ed not.
  5. Hear the word of the ⟨Lord⟩, ye that trem­ble at his word; Your breth­ren that hat­ed you, that cast you out for my names sake, said, Let the ⟨Lord⟩ be glo­ri­fied: but he shall ap­pear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed.
  6. A‍ ‍voice of noise from the city, a‍ ‍voice from the tem­ple, a‍ ‍voice of the ⟨Lord⟩ that ren­der­eth rec­om­pence to his enemies.
  7. Before she tra­vailed, she brought forth, be­fore her pain came, she was de­liv­ered of a man child.
  8. Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a na­tion be born at once? for as soon as Zion tra­vailed, she brought forth her children.
  9. Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? sa­ith thy ⟨God⟩.
  10. Rejoice ye with Je­ru­sa­lem, and be glad with her, all ye that love her: re­joice for joy with her, all ye that mourn for her:
  11. That ye may suck, and be sat­is­fied with the breasts of her con­so­la­tions; that ye may milk out, and be de­light­ed with the abun­dance of her glory.
  12. For thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩, Be­hold, I will ex­tend peace to her like a riv­er, and the glo­ry of the Gen­tiles like a flow­ing stream: then shall ye suck, ye shall be borne up­on her sides, and be dan­dled up­on her knees.
  13. As one whom his moth­er com­fort­eth, so will I com­fort you; and ye shall be com­fort­ed in Jerusalem.
  14. And when ye see this, your heart shall re­joice and your bones shall flour­ish like an herb: and the hand of the ⟨Lord⟩ shall be known to­ward his serv­ants, and his in­dig­na­tion to­ward his enemies.
  15. For, be­hold, the ⟨Lord⟩ will come with fire, and with his char­i­ots like a‍ ‍whirl­wind, to rend­er his an­ger with fu­ry, and his re­buke with flames of fire.
  16. For by fire and by his sword will the ⟨Lord⟩ plead with all flesh: and the slain of the ⟨Lord⟩ shall be many.
  17. They that sanc­ti­fy them­selves, and pur­i­fy them­selves in the gar­dens be­hind one tree in the midst, eat­ing swines flesh, and the abom­i­na­tion, and the mouse, shall be con­sumed to­geth­er, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩.
  18. For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gath­er all na­tions and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory.
  19. And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those that es­cape of them un­to the na­tions,to Tar‍′‍-‍shish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tu‍′‍-‍bal, and Ja‍′‍-‍van, to the isles afar off, that have not heard my fame, nei­ther have seen my glo­ry; and they shall de­clare my glo­ry among the Gentiles.
  20. And they shall bring all your breth­ren for an of­fer­ing un­to the ⟨Lord⟩ out of all na­tions up­on hors­es, and in char­i­ots, and in lit­ters, and up­on mules, and up­on swift beasts, to my holy moun­tain Je­ru­sa­lem, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩, as the chil­dren of Is­ra­el bring an of­fer­ing in a clean ves­sel in­to the house of the ⟨Lord⟩.
  21. And I will al­so take of them for priests and for Le­vites, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩.
  22. For as the new heav­ens and the new earth, which I will make, shall re­main be­fore me, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩, so shall your seed and your name remain.
  23. And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to an­oth­er, shall all flesh come to‍ ‍wor­ship be­fore me, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩.
  24. And they shall go forth, and look up­on the car­cas­es of the men that have trans­gressed against me: for their worm shall not die, nei­ther shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an ab­hor­ring un­to all flesh.
