The worm is spread under thee, and worms cover thee. How thou are fallen from heaven, O day-star, son of the morning! How thou are cut down to the ground, who laid the nations low! And thou said in thy heart, I will ascend into heaven. I will exalt my throne above the stars of God, and I will sit upon the mount of congregation, in the outermost parts of the north.

Who is there among you that will give ear to this, that will hearken and hear for the time to come? Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? Did not LORD? He against whom we have sinned, and in whose ways they would not walk, nor were they obedient to his law. Therefore he poured upon him the fierceness of his anger, and the strength of battle. And it set him on fire round about, yet he knew not. And it burned him, yet he laid it not to heart.

And there shall be a pavilion for a shade in the daytime from the heat, and for a refuge, and for a covert from storm and from rain.


Yet thou have not called upon me, O Jacob, but thou have been weary of me, O Israel. Thou have not brought me from thy sheep for burnt-offerings, nor have thou honored me with thy sacrifices. I have not burdened thee with offerings, nor wearied thee with frankincense. Thou have bought me no sweet cane with money, nor have thou filled me with the fat of thy sacrifices. But thou have burdened me with thy sins. Thou have wearied me with thine iniquities. read more.
I, even I, am he who blots out thy transgressions for my own sake, and I will not remember thy sins. Put me in remembrance. Let us plead together. Set thou forth [thy case] that thou may be justified. Thy first father sinned, and thy teachers have transgressed against me. Therefore I will profane the rulers of the sanctuary, and I will make Jacob a curse, and Israel a reviling.


The burden of Dumah. He calls to me out of Seir, Watchman, what of the night? Watchman, what of the night? The watchman said, The morning comes, and also the night. If ye will inquire, inquire ye; turn ye back, come.


And in that day the deaf shall hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity and out of darkness. The meek also shall increase their joy in LORD, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel. For the terrible one is brought to nothing, and the scoffer ceases. And all those who watch for iniquity are cut off, read more.
who make a man an offender in [his] cause, and lay a snare for him who reproves in the gate, and turn aside the just with a thing of nothing. Therefore thus says LORD, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob: Jacob shall not now be ashamed, nor shall his face now grow pale. But when he sees his children, the work of my hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name. Yea, they shall sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall stand in awe of the God of Israel. They also who err in spirit shall come to understanding, and those who murmur shall receive instruction.


The burden upon Arabia. In the forest in Arabia ye shall lodge, O ye caravans of Dedanites. To him who was thirsty they brought water. The inhabitants of the land of Tema met the fugitives with their bread. For they fled away from the swords, from the drawn sword, and from the bent bow, and from the grievousness of war. read more.
For thus LORD has said to me, Within a year, according to the years of a hireling, all the glory of Kedar shall fail. And the residue of the number of the archers, the mighty men of the sons of Kedar, shall be few. For LORD, the God of Israel, has spoken it.


The burden of the valley of vision. What troubles thee now, that thou have wholly gone up to the housetops? O thou that are full of shoutings, a tumultuous city, a joyous town. Thy slain are not slain with the sword, nor are they dead in battle. All thy rulers fled away together. They were bound by the archers. All who were found of thee were bound together; they fled afar off. read more.
Therefore I said, Look away from me. I will weep bitterly. Labor not to comfort me for the destruction of the daughter of my people. For it is a day of trouble, and of treading down, and of perplexity, from the Lord, LORD of hosts, in the valley of vision, a breaking down of the walls, and a crying to the mountains. And Elam bore the quiver, with chariots of men [and] horsemen, and Kir uncovered the shield. And it came to pass, that thy choicest valleys were full of chariots, and the horsemen set themselves in array at the gate. And he took away the covering of Judah, and thou looked in that day to the armor in the house of the forest. And ye saw the breaches of the city of David, that they were many. And to fortify the wall, ye gathered together the waters of the lower pool, and ye numbered the houses of Jerusalem, and ye broke down the houses. Ye also made a reservoir between the two walls for the water of the old pool. But ye did not look to him who had done this, nor had ye respect to him who purposed it long ago. And in that day the Lord, LORD of hosts, called for weeping, and for mourning, and for baldness, and for girding with sackcloth. And, behold, joy and gladness, slaying oxen and killing sheep, eating flesh and drinking wine. Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we shall die. And LORD of hosts revealed himself in my ears, Surely this iniquity shall not be forgiven you till ye die, says the Lord, LORD of hosts. Thus says the Lord, LORD of hosts, Go, get thee to this treasurer, even to Shebna, who is over the house, [and say], What are thou doing here? And whom have thou here, that thou have hewed thee out here a sepulcher? Hewing him out a sepulcher on high, carving a habitation for himself in the rock! Behold, LORD, like a [strong] man, will hurl thee away violently. Yea, he will wrap thee up closely. He will surely wind thee round and round, [tossing] like a ball into a large country. There thou shall die, and there the chariots of thy glory shall be, thou shame of thy lord's house. And I will thrust thee from thine office, and thou shall be pulled down from thy station. And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will call my servant Eliakim the son of Hilkiah. And I will clothe him with thy robe, and strengthen him with thy belt. 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. And I will lay the key of the house of David upon his shoulder, and he shall open, and none shall shut, and he shall shut, and none shall open.


Yet the people have not turned to him who smote them, nor have they sought LORD of hosts. Therefore LORD will cut off from Israel head and tail, palm-branch and rush, in one day. The elder and the honorable man, he is the head. And the prophet who teaches lies, he is the tail. read more.
For those who lead this people cause them to err, and those who are led by them are destroyed. Therefore LORD will not rejoice over their young men, nor will he have compassion on their fatherless and widows. For everyone is profane and an evil-doer, and every mouth speaks folly. For all this his anger is not turned away, bu For wickedness burns as the fire. It devours the briers and thorns. Yea, it kindles in the thickets of the forest, and they roll upward in a column of smoke. Through the wrath of LORD of hosts is the land burnt up, and the people are as the fuel of fire; no man spares his brother. 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-- Manasseh, Ephraim, and Ephraim, Manasseh, and together they shall be against Judah. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.


I am LORD, and there is none else. Besides me there is no God. I will gird thee, though thou have not known me, that they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none besides me. I am LORD, and there is none else. I form the light, and create darkness. I make peace, and create evil. I am LORD who does all these things. read more.
Distil, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness. Let the earth open that it may bring forth salvation, and let it cause righteousness to spring up together. I, LORD, have created it. Woe to him who strives with his maker, a potsherd among the potsherds of the earth! Shall the clay say to him that fashions it, What are thou making? or thy work, He has no hands? Woe to him who says to a father, What are thou begetting? or to a woman, With what are thou travailing? Thus says LORD, the Holy One of Israel and his maker: Ask me of the things that are to come concerning my sons. And command ye me concerning the work of my hands. I have made the earth, and created man upon it. I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host I have commanded. I have raised him up in righteousness, and I will make straight all his ways. He shall build my city, and he shall let my exiles go free, not for price nor reward, says LORD of hosts. Thus says LORD: The labor of Egypt, and the merchandise of Ethiopia, and the Sabeans, men of stature, shall come over to thee, and they shall be thine. They shall go after thee. In chains they shall come over, and they shall fall d Verily thou are a God who hides thyself, O God of Israel, the Savior. They shall be put to shame, yea, confounded, all of them. They shall go into confusion together who are makers of idols. [But] Israel shall be saved by LORD with an everlasting salvation. Ye shall not be put to shame nor confounded world without end. For thus says LORD who created the heavens, the God who formed the earth and made it, who established it and did not create it a waste, who formed it to be inhabited: I am LORD, and there is none else. I have not spoken in secret, in a place of the land of darkness. I did not say to the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain. I, LORD, speak righteousness. I declare things that are right. Assemble yourselves and come, draw near together, ye that are escaped of the nations. They have no knowledge that carry the wood of their graven image, and pray to a god that cannot save. Declare ye, and bring [it] forth. Yea, let them take counsel together. Who has shown this from ancient time? Who has declared it of old? Have not I, LORD? And there is no other God besides me, a just God and a Savior. There is none Look to me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth, for I am God, and there is none else. By myself I have sworn, the word has gone forth from my mouth [in] righteousness, and shall not return, that to me every knee shall bow, every tongue will {confess to God (LXX/NT)}. Only in LORD, it is said of me, is righteousness and strength. Even to him men shall come, and all those who were incensed against him shall be put to shame. In LORD all the seed of Israel shall be justified, and shall glory.


And even these reel with wine, and stagger with strong drink. The priest and the prophet reel with strong drink. They are swallowed up of wine. They stagger with strong drink; they err in vision; they stumble in judgment. For all tables are full of vomit, filthiness, no place [clean]. Whom will he teach knowledge? And whom will he make to understand the message? Those who are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts? read more.
For it is precept upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little. No, but by [men of] strange lips and with another tongue he will speak to this people, to whom he said, This is the rest. Give ye rest to him who is weary. And this is the refreshing. Yet they would not hear. Therefore the word of LORD shall be to them precept upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little, that they may go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken. Therefore hear the word of LORD, ye scoffers, who rule this people that is in Jerusalem. Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and we are at agreement with Sheol. When the overflowing scourge shall pass through it shall not come to us, for we have made lies our refuge, and we have hid ourselves unde Therefore thus says lord LORD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation, a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner-[stone], a sure foundation. He who believes {in him shall, no, not be shamed (LXX/NT)}. And I will make justice the line, and righteousness the plummet. And the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding-place. And your covenant with death shall be annulled, and your agreement with Sheol shall not stand. When the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it. As often as it passes though, it shall take you. For morning by morning it shall pass through, by day and by night. And it shall be nothing but terror to understand the report. For the bed is shorter than what a man can stretch himself on it, and the covering narrower than what he can wrap himself in it. For LORD will rise up as in mount Perazim. He will be angry as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work, and bring to pass his act, his strange act. Now therefore be ye not scoffers, lest your bonds be made strong. For I have heard a decree of destruction from the Lord, LORD of hosts, upon the whole earth. Give ye ear, and hear my voice, hearken, and hear my speech. Does he who plows to sow plow continually? Does he [continually] open and harrow his ground? When he has leveled the face of it, does he not cast abroad the chick-peas, and scatter the cummin, and put in the wheat in rows, and the barley in the appointed place, and the spelt in the border of it? For his God instructs him aright, [and] teaches him. For the chick-peas are not threshed with a sharp instrument, nor is a cart wheel turned about upon the cummin, but the chick-peas are beaten out with a staff, and the cummin with a rod. Bread [grain] is ground, for he will not be always threshing it. And though the wheel of his cart and his horses scatter it, he does not grind it. This also comes forth from LORD of hosts, who is wonderful in counsel, and excellent in wisdom.


Ho, Assyrian, the rod of my anger, the staff in whose hand is my indignation! I will send him against a profane nation, and against the people of my wrath. I will give him a charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets. However he does not so reason, nor does his heart so think, but it is in his heart to destroy, and to cut off nations not a few. read more.
For he says, Are not my rulers all of them kings? Is not Calno as Carchemish? Is not Hamath as Arpad? Is not Samaria as Damascus? As my hand has found the kingdoms of the idols, whose graven images excelled those of Jerusalem and of Samaria, shall I not, as I have done to Samaria and her idols, so do to Jerusalem and her idols? Therefore it shall come to pass, that, when LORD has performed his whole work upon mount Zion and on Jerusalem, I will punish the fruit of the arrogant heart of the king of Assyria, and the glory of his high looks. For he has said, By the strength of my hand I have done it, and by my wisdom, for I have understanding. And I have removed the bounds of the peoples, and have robbed their treasures. And like a valiant man I have brought down those And my hand has found as a nest the riches of the peoples. And like a gathering of eggs that are forsaken, I have gathered all the earth. And there was none that moved the wing, or that opened the mouth, or chirped. Shall the axe boast itself against him who hews with it? Shall the saw magnify itself against him who wields it? As if a rod should wield those who lift it up, [or] as if a staff should lift up [him who is] not wood. Therefore will the Lord, LORD of hosts, send among his fat ones, leanness, and under his glory there shall be kindled a burning like the burning of fire. And the light of Israel will be for a fire, and his Holy One for a flame, and it will burn and devour his thorns and his briers in one day. And he will consume the glory of his forest, and of his fruitful field, both soul and body. And it shall be as when a standard-bearer faints. And the remnant of the trees of his forest shall be few, so that a child may write them. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and those who are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again lean upon him who smote them, but shall lean upon LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth. A remnant shall return, [even] the remnant of Jacob, to the mighty God. For though thy people, Israel, be as the sand of the sea, a remnant of them shall return. A destruction [is] determined, overflowing with righteousness. For a full end, and that determined, the Lord, LORD of hosts, will make in the midst of all the earth. Therefore thus says the Lord, LORD of hosts, O my people who dwell in Zion, be not afraid of the Assyrian, though he smites thee with the rod, and lifts up his staff against thee, according to the manner of Egypt. For yet a very little while, and the indignation shall be accomplished, and my anger [is] to his destruction. And LORD of hosts will stir up against him a scourge as in the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb. And his rod will be over the sea, and he will lift it up according to the manner of Egypt. And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall depart from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of fatness. He has come to Aiath. He has passed through Migron. At Michmash he lays up his baggage. They have gone over the pass. They have taken up their lodging at Geba. Ramah trembles. Gibeah of Saul has fled. Cry aloud with thy voice, O daughter of Gallim! Hearken, O Laishah! O thou poor Anathoth! Madmenah is a fugitive. The inhabitants of Gebim flee for safety. This very day he shall halt at Nob. He shakes his hand at the mount of the daughter of Zion, the hill of Jerusalem. Behold, the Lord, LORD of hosts, will lop off the boughs with terror. And the high of stature shall be hewn down, and the lofty shall be brought low. And he will cut down the thickets of the forest with iron, and Lebanon shall fall by a mighty one.


But now thus says LORD who created thee, O Jacob, and he who formed thee, O Israel: Fear not, for I have redeemed thee. I have called thee by thy name, Thou are mine. When thou pass through the waters, I will be with thee, and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee. When thou walk through the fire, thou shall not be burned, nor shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Savior. I have given Egypt as thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba in thy stead. read more.
Since thou have been precious in my sight, [and] honorable, and I have loved thee, therefore I will give men in thy stead, and peoples instead of thy life. Fear not, for I am with thee. I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west. I will say to the north, Give up, and to the south, Keep not back. Bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the end of the earth, everyone who is called by my name, and whom I have created for my glory, whom I have formed, yea, whom I have made. Bring forth the blind people who have eyes, and the deaf who have ears. Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the peoples be assembled. Who among them can declare this, and show us former things? Let them bring their witnesses that they may be justified, or let them hear, and say, It is tru Ye are my witnesses, says LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen, that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he. Before me there was no God formed, nor shall there be after me. I, even I, am LORD, and besides me there is no savior. I have declared, and I have saved, and I have shown, and there was no strange [god] among you. Therefore ye are my witnesses, says LORD, and I am God. Yea, since the day was I am he, and there is none that can deliver out of my hand. I will work, and who can hinder it?


Sheol from beneath is moved for thee, to meet thee at thy coming. It stirs up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth. It has raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations. They shall all answer and say to thee, Have thou also become weak as we? Have thou become like us? Thy pomp is brought down to Sheol, [and] the noise of thy viols. The worm is spread under thee, and worms cover thee. read more.
How thou are fallen from heaven, O day-star, son of the morning! How thou are cut down to the ground, who laid the nations low! And thou said in thy heart, I will ascend into heaven. I will exalt my throne above the stars of God, and I will sit upon the mount of congregation, in the outermost parts of the north. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds. I will make myself like the Most High. Yet thou shall be brought down to Sheol, to the utmost parts of the pit. Those who see thee shall gaze at thee. They shall consider thee, [saying], Is this the man who made the earth to tremble, who shook kingdoms, who made the world as a wilderness, and overthrew the cities of it, who did not let loose his prisoners to their home? All the kings of the nations, all of them, sleep in glory, each one in his own house. But thou are cast forth away from thy sepulcher like an abominable branch, clothed with the slain, who are thrust through with the sword, who go down to the stones of the pit, as a dead body trodden under foot. Thou shall not be joined with them in burial, because thou have destroyed thy land. Thou have slain thy people. The seed of evil-doers shall not be named forever. Prepare ye slaughter for his sons for the iniquity of their fathers, that they not rise up, and possess the earth, and fill the face of the world with cities. And I will rise up against them, says LORD of hosts, and cut off from Babylon name and remnant, and son and son's son, says LORD. I will also make it a possession for the porcupine, and pools of water. And I will sweep it with the broom of destruction, says LORD of hosts. LORD of hosts has sworn, saying, Surely, as I have thought, so shall it come to pass, and as I have purposed, so shall it stand, that I will break the Assyrian in my land, and tread him under foot upon my mountains. Then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulder. This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth, and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations. For LORD of hosts has purposed, and who shall annul it? And his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back? In the year that king Ahaz died was this burden. Rejoice not, O Philistia, all of thee, because the rod that smote thee is broken. For out of the serpent's root shall come forth an adder, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent. 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 thy remnant shall be slain. Howl, O gate, cry, O city. Thou are melted away, O Philistia, all of thee. For there comes a smoke out of the north, and there is no straggler in his ranks. What then shall [a man] answer the messengers of the nation? That LORD has founded Zion, and in her shall the afflicted of his people take refuge.


Tarry ye and wonder, take your pleasure and be blind. They are drunken, but not with wine. They stagger, but not with strong drink. For LORD has poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and has closed your eyes. The prophets, and your heads, the seers, he has covered. And all vision has become to you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to a man who is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee. And he says, I cannot, for it is sealed. read more.
And the book is delivered to him who is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee. And he says, I am not learned.

Shall the potter be esteemed as clay, that the thing made should say of him who made it, He did not make me, or the thing formed say of him who formed it, He has no understanding? Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest?


The burden of the wilderness of the sea. As whirlwinds in the South sweep through, it comes from the wilderness, from a terrible land. A grievous vision is declared to me. The treacherous man deals treacherously, and the destroyer destroys. Go up, O Elam. Besiege, O Media, all the sighing of it I have made to cease. Therefore my loins are filled with anguish. Pangs have taken hold upon me, as the pangs of a woman in travail. I am pained so that I cannot hear. I am dismayed so that I cannot see. read more.
My heart flutters. Horror has frightened me. The twilight that I desired has been turned into trembling to me. They prepare the table, they set the watch, they eat, they drink. Rise up, ye rulers, anoint the shield. For thus has LORD said to me, Go, set a watchman. Let him declare what he sees. and when he sees a troop, horsemen in pairs, a troop of donkeys, a troop of camels, he shall hearken diligently with much heed. And he cried out as a lion, O LORD, I stand continually upon the watchtower in the daytime, and am set in my ward whole nights, and, behold, here comes a troop of men, horsemen in pairs. And he answered and said, Fallen, fallen is Babylon. And all the graven images of her gods are broken to the ground. O my threshing, and the grain of my floor! That which I have heard from LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, I have declared to you.


And Hezekiah said to Isaiah, What shall be the sign that LORD will heal me, and that I shall go up to the house of LORD the third day?

And Hezekiah answered, It is a light thing for the shadow to go forward ten steps. No, but let the shadow return backward ten steps. read more.

But he awakes, and, behold, he is faint, and his soul has appetite. S


For thou have forsaken thy people the house of Jacob, because they are filled [with things] from the east, and [are] soothsayers like the Philistines.

Their land is also full of horses, neither is there any end of their chariots. Their land is also full of idols.

For there shall be a day of LORD of hosts upon all that is proud and haughty, and upon all that is lifted up, and it shall be brought low, and upon all the cedars of Lebanon that are high and lifted up, and upon all the oaks of Bashan, and upon all the high mountains, and upon all the hills that are lifted up, and upon every lofty tower, and upon every fortified wall, and upon all the ships of Tarshish, and upon all pleasant imagery. And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be brought low, and LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. And the idols shall utterly pass away.

Let me sing for my well-beloved a song of my beloved concerning his vineyard. My well-beloved had a vineyard in a very fruitful hill.

What could have been done more to my vineyard that I have not done in it? Why, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, it brought forth wild grapes? And now I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard. I will take away the hedge of it, and it shall be eaten up. I will break down the wall of it, and it shall be trodden down. And I will lay it waste. It shall not be pruned nor hoed, but there shall come up briers and thorns. I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it. For the vineyard of LORD of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah his pleasant plant. And he looked for justice, but, behold, oppression, for righteousness, but, behold, a cry. Woe to those who join house to house, who lay field to field, till there is no room, and ye be made to dwell alone in the midst of the land! In my ears [says] LORD of hosts, of a truth many houses shall be desolate, even great and fair, without inhabitant. For ten acres of vineyard shall yield one bath, and a homer of seed shall yield [but] an ephah.

And it came to pass in the days of Ahaz the son of Jotham, the son of Uzziah, king of Judah, that Rezin the king of Syria, and Pekah the son of Remaliah, king of Israel, went up to Jerusalem to war against it, but could not prevail And it was told the house of David, saying, Syria is allied with Ephraim. And his heart trembled, and the heart of his people, as the trees of the forest tremble with the wind.

For the head of Syria is Damascus, and the head of Damascus is Rezin. And within sixty-five years Ephraim shall be broken in pieces, so that is shall not be a people. And the head of Ephraim is Samaria, and the head of Samaria is Remaliah's son. If ye will not believe, surely ye shall not be established. And LORD spoke again to Ahaz, saying, Ask thee a sign of LORD thy God, ask it either in the depth, or in the height above. But Ahaz said, I will not ask, nor will I challenge LORD. And he said, Hear ye now, O house of David. Is it a small thing for you to weary men, that ye will weary my God also? Therefore LORD himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. Butter and honey shall he eat, when he knows to refuse the evil, and choose the good. For before the child shall know to refuse the evil, and choose the good, the land whose two kings thou abhor shall be forsaken.


In that day LORD of hosts will become a crown of glory, and a diadem of beauty, to the residue of his people, and a spirit of justice to him who sits in judgment, and strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate.


LORD sent a word into Jacob, and it has lighted upon Israel. And all the people shall know, [even] Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria, who say in pride and in arrogance of heart, The bricks are fallen, but we will build with hewn stone, the sycamores are cut down, but we will put cedars in their place. read more.
Therefore LORD will set up on high against him the adversaries of Rezin, and will stir up his enemies, the Syrians in front, and the Philistines 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.


Woe to those who decree unrighteous decrees, and to the writers who write perverseness, to turn aside the needy from justice, and to rob the poor of my people of their right, that widows may be their spoil, and that they may make the fatherless their prey! And what will ye do in the day of visitation, and in the desolation which shall come from far? To whom will ye flee for help? And where will ye leave your glory? read more.
They shall only bow down under the prisoners, and shall fall under the slain. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.


Woe to those who join house to house, who lay field to field, till there is no room, and ye be made to dwell alone in the midst of the land! In my ears [says] LORD of hosts, of a truth many houses shall be desolate, even great and fair, without inhabitant. For ten acres of vineyard shall yield one bath, and a homer of seed shall yield [but] an ephah. read more.
Woe to those who rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink, who tarry late into the night, till wine inflame them! And the harp and the lute, the tambourine and the pipe, and wine, are [in] their feasts, but they do not regard the work of LORD, nor have they considered the operation of his hands. Therefore my people have gone into captivity for lack of knowledge, and their honorable men are famished, and their multitude are parched with thirst. Therefore Sheol has enlarged its desire, and opened its mouth without measure. And their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he who rejoices among them, descend [into it]. And the common man is bowed down, and the great man is debased, and the eyes of the lofty are humbled, but LORD of hosts is exalted in justice, and God the Holy One is sanctified in righteousness. Then the lambs shall feed as in their pasture, and wanderers shall eat the waste places of the fat ones. Woe to those who draw iniquity with cords of falsehood, and sin as it were with a cart rope, who say, Let him make speed, let him hasten his work, that we may see it. And let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw near and come, that we may know it! Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil, who put darkness for light, and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Woe to those who are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink, who justify the wicked for rewards, and take away the justice of the righteous man from him! Therefore as the tongue of fire devours the stubble, and as the dry grass sinks down in the flame, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust, because they have rejected the law of LORD of hosts, an Therefore the anger of LORD is kindled against his people, and he has stretched forth his hand against them, and has smitten them. And the mountains tremble, and their dead bodies are as refuse in the midst of the streets. For all And he will lift up an ensign to the nations from far, and will whistle for them from the end of the earth, and, behold, they shall come with speed swiftly. None shall be weary nor stumble among them. None shall slumber nor sleep, nor shall the belt of their loins be loosed, nor the latchet of their shoes be broken, whose arrows are sharp, and all their bows bent. Their horses' hoofs shall be accounted as flint, and their wheels as a whirlwind. Their roaring shall be like a lioness. They shall roar like young lions. Yea, they shall roar, and lay hold of the prey, and carry it away safe, and there shall be none to deliver. And they shall roar against them in that day like the roaring of the sea. And if [a man] looks to the land, behold, darkness [and] distress, and the light is darkened in the clouds of it.


Thus says LORD, Keep ye justice, and do righteousness. For my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed. Blessed is the man who does this, and the son of man who holds it fast, who keeps the Sabbath from profaning it, and keeps his hand from doing any evil. Neither let the foreigner, who has joined himself to LORD, speak, saying, LORD will surely separate me from his people, nor let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree. read more.
For thus says LORD of the eunuchs who keep my Sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and hold fast my covenant: To them I will give in my house and within my walls a memorial and a name better than of sons and of daughters. I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off. Also the foreigners who join themselves to LORD, to minister to him, and to love the name of LORD, to be his servants, everyone who keeps the Sabbath from profaning it, and holds fast my covenant, even them I will bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer. Their burnt-offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon my altar, for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples. Lord LORD, who gathers the outcasts of Israel, says, Yet I will gather to him, besides his own who are gathered.




at that time LORD spoke by Isaiah the son of Amoz, saying, Go, and loose the sackcloth from off thy loins, and put thy shoe from off thy foot. And he did so, walking naked and barefoot. And LORD said, Just as my servant Isaiah has walked naked and barefoot three years for a sign and a wonder concerning Egypt and concerning Ethiopia,


But there shall be no gloom to her who was in anguish. In the former time he brought into contempt the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, but in the latter time he has made it glorious, by the way of the sea, beyond the Jord The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light. Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, upon them the light has shone. Thou have multiplied the nation. Thou have increased their joy. They joy before thee according to the joy in harvest, as men rejoice when they divide the spoil. read more.
For the yoke of his burden, and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, thou have broken as in the day of Midian. For all the armor of the armed man in the tumult, and the garments rolled in blood, shall be for burning, for fuel of fire. For to us a child is born, to us a son is given. And the government shall be upon his shoulder. And his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Father of Eternity, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and of peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to establish it, and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from henceforth even forever.
