23~ISAIAH 001|001` The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah.

23~ISAIAH 001|002` 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.

23~ISAIAH 001|003` The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master's crib: but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider.

23~ISAIAH 001|004` 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 to anger, they are gone away backward.

23~ISAIAH 001|005` Why should you be stricken any more? you will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.

23~ISAIAH 001|006` From the sole of the foot even to 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.

23~ISAIAH 001|007` 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.

23~ISAIAH 001|008` 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.

23~ISAIAH 001|009` Except the Lord of hosts had left to us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like to Gomorrah.

23~ISAIAH 001|010` Hear the word of the Lord, you rulers of Sodom; give ear to the law of our God, you people of Gomorrah.

23~ISAIAH 001|011` To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices to 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.

23~ISAIAH 001|012` When you come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts?

23~ISAIAH 001|013` Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination to me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.

23~ISAIAH 001|014` Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble to me; I am weary to bear them.

23~ISAIAH 001|015` And when you spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when you make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.

23~ISAIAH 001|016` Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;

23~ISAIAH 001|017` Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.

23~ISAIAH 001|018` 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.

23~ISAIAH 001|019` If you be willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land:

23~ISAIAH 001|020` But if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.

23~ISAIAH 001|021` How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.

23~ISAIAH 001|022` Your silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water:

23~ISAIAH 001|023` Your princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come to them.

23~ISAIAH 001|024` 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:

23~ISAIAH 001|025` And I will turn my hand upon you, and purely purge away thy dross, and take away all thy tin:

23~ISAIAH 001|026` And I will restore thy judges as at the first, and thy counsellers as at the beginning: afterward you shalt be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city.

23~ISAIAH 001|027` Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness.

23~ISAIAH 001|028` And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the Lord shall be consumed.

23~ISAIAH 001|029` For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which you have desired, and you shall be confounded for the gardens that you have chosen.

23~ISAIAH 001|030` For you shall be as an oak whose leaf fadeth, and as a garden that hath no water.

23~ISAIAH 001|031` 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.

23~ISAIAH 002|001` The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.

23~ISAIAH 002|002` And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it.

23~ISAIAH 002|003` And many people shall go and say, Come you, 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.

23~ISAIAH 002|004` 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.

23~ISAIAH 002|005` O house of Jacob, come you, and let us walk in the light of the Lord.

23~ISAIAH 002|006` Therefore you hast forsaken thy people the house of Jacob, because they be replenished from the east, and are soothsayers like the Philistines, and they please themselves in the children of strangers.

23~ISAIAH 002|007` 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:

23~ISAIAH 002|008` Their land also is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made:

23~ISAIAH 002|009` And the mean man bows down, and the great man humbleth himself: therefore forgive them not.

23~ISAIAH 002|010` Enter into the rock, and hide you in the dust, for fear of the Lord, and for the glory of his majesty.

23~ISAIAH 002|011` 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.

23~ISAIAH 002|012` For the day of the Lord of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low:

23~ISAIAH 002|013` And upon all the cedars of Lebanon, that are high and lifted up, and upon all the oaks of Bashan,

23~ISAIAH 002|014` And upon all the high mountains, and upon all the hills that are lifted up,

23~ISAIAH 002|015` And upon every high tower, and upon every fenced wall,

23~ISAIAH 002|016` And upon all the ships of Tarshish, and upon all pleasant pictures.

23~ISAIAH 002|017` 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.

23~ISAIAH 002|018` And the idols he shall utterly abolish.

23~ISAIAH 002|019` 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 fPfR+p majesty, when he arise to shake terribly the earth.

23~ISAIAH 002|020` 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;

23~ISAIAH 002|021` 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 arise to shake terribly the earth.

23~ISAIAH 002|022` Cease you from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?

23~ISAIAH 003|001` 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,

23~ISAIAH 003|002` The mighty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient,

23~ISAIAH 003|003` The captain of fifty, and the honourable man, and the counseller, and the cunning artificer, and the eloquent orator.

23~ISAIAH 003|004` And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them.

23~ISAIAH 003|005` 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.

23~ISAIAH 003|006` When a man shall take hold of his brother of the house of his father, saying, You hast clothing, be you our ruler, and let this ruin be under thy hand:

23~ISAIAH 003|007` 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.

23~ISAIAH 003|008` 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.

23~ISAIAH 003|009` The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe to their soul! for they have rewarded evil to themselves.

23~ISAIAH 003|010` Say you to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.

23~ISAIAH 003|011` Woe to the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him.

23~ISAIAH 003|012` As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead you cause you to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.

23~ISAIAH 003|013` The Lord stands up to plead, and stands to judge the people.

23~ISAIAH 003|014` The Lord will enter into judgment with the ancients of his people, and the princes thereof: for you have eaten up the vineyard; the spoil of the poor is in your houses.

23~ISAIAH 003|015` What mean you that you beat my people to pieces, and grind the faces fPfR+p of the poor? saith the Lord God of hosts.

23~ISAIAH 003|016` 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 their feet:

23~ISAIAH 003|017` 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.

23~ISAIAH 003|018` In that day the Lord will take away the bravery of their tinkling ornaments about their feet, and their cauls, and their round tires like the moon,

23~ISAIAH 003|019` The chains, and the bracelets, and the mufflers,

23~ISAIAH 003|020` The bonnets, and the ornaments of the legs, and the headbands, and the tablets, and the earrings,

23~ISAIAH 003|021` The rings, and nose jewels,

23~ISAIAH 003|022` The changeable suits of apparel, and the mantles, and the wimples, and the crisping pins,

23~ISAIAH 003|023` The glasses, and the fine linen, and the hoods, and the vails.

23~ISAIAH 003|024` 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; and burning instead of beauty.

23~ISAIAH 003|025` Your men shall fall by the sword, and thy mighty in the war.

23~ISAIAH 003|026` And her gates shall lament and mourn; and she being desolate shall sit upon the ground.

23~ISAIAH 004|001` And in that day seven 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.

23~ISAIAH 004|002` 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.

23~ISAIAH 004|003` 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:

23~ISAIAH 004|004` 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.

23~ISAIAH 004|005` 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.

23~ISAIAH 004|006` 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.

23~ISAIAH 005|001` 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:

23~ISAIAH 005|002` 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.

23~ISAIAH 005|003` And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem, and men of Judah, judge, I pray you, between me and my vineyard.

23~ISAIAH 005|004` 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?

23~ISAIAH 005|005` 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:

23~ISAIAH 005|006` 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.

23~ISAIAH 005|007` 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.

23~ISAIAH 005|008` Woe to them that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there be no place, that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth!

23~ISAIAH 005|009` In mine ears said the Lord of hosts, Of a truth many houses shall be desolate, even great and fair, without inhabitant.

23~ISAIAH 005|010` You, ten acres of vineyard shall yield one bath, and the seed of an homer shall yield an ephah.

23~ISAIAH 005|011` Woe to them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them!

23~ISAIAH 005|012` 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.

23~ISAIAH 005|013` 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.

23~ISAIAH 005|014` 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.

23~ISAIAH 005|015` And the mean man shall be brought down, and the mighty man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled:

23~ISAIAH 005|016` But the Lord of hosts shall be exalted in judgment, and God that is holy shall be sanctified in righteousness.

23~ISAIAH 005|017` Then shall the lambs feed after their manner, and the waste places of the fat ones shall strangers eat.

23~ISAIAH 005|018` Woe to them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope:

23~ISAIAH 005|019` 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!

23~ISAIAH 005|020` Woe to 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!

23~ISAIAH 005|021` Woe to them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

23~ISAIAH 005|022` Woe to them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:

23~ISAIAH 005|023` Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!

23~ISAIAH 005|024` Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumes 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.

23~ISAIAH 005|025` 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 bodies were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

23~ISAIAH 005|026` And he will lift up an ensign to the nations from far, and will hiss to them from the end of the earth: and, behold, they shall come with speed swiftly:

23~ISAIAH 005|027` 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:

23~ISAIAH 005|028` Whose arrows are sharp, and all their bows bent, their horses' hoofs shall be counted like flint, and their wheels like a whirlwind:

23~ISAIAH 005|029` 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 safe, and none shall deliver it.

23~ISAIAH 005|030` And in that day they shall roar against them like the roaring of the sea: and if one look to the land, behold darkness and sorrow, fPfR+p and the light is darkened in the heavens thereof.

23~ISAIAH 006|001` In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.

23~ISAIAH 006|002` Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.

23~ISAIAH 006|003` And one cried to another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.

23~ISAIAH 006|004` And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.

23~ISAIAH 006|005` Then said I, Woe is 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.

23~ISAIAH 006|006` Then flew one of the seraphims to me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:

23~ISAIAH 006|007` And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and yours iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.

23~ISAIAH 006|008` 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.

23~ISAIAH 006|009` And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear you indeed, but understand not; and see you indeed, but perceive not.

23~ISAIAH 006|010` 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.

23~ISAIAH 006|011` 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,

23~ISAIAH 006|012` And the Lord have removed men far away, and there be a great fPfR+p forsaking in the midst of the land.

23~ISAIAH 006|013` 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 cast their leaves: so the holy seed shall be the substance thereof.

23~ISAIAH 007|001` 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 toward Jerusalem to war against it, but could not prevail against it.

23~ISAIAH 007|002` And it was told the house of David, saying, Syria is confederate with Ephraim. And his heart was moved, and the heart of his people, as the trees of the wood are moved with the wind.

23~ISAIAH 007|003` Then said the Lord to Isaiah, Go forth now to meet Ahaz, you, and Shearjashub thy son, at the end of the conduit of the upper pool in the highway of the fuller's field;

23~ISAIAH 007|004` And say to him, Take heed, and be quiet; fear not, neither be fainthearted for the two tails of these smoking firebrands, for the fierce anger of Rezin with Syria, and of the son of Remaliah.

23~ISAIAH 007|005` Because Syria, Ephraim, and the son of Remaliah, have taken evil counsel against you, saying,

23~ISAIAH 007|006` 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 Tabeal:

23~ISAIAH 007|007` Thus saith the Lord God, It shall not stand, neither shall It come to pass.

23~ISAIAH 007|008` For the head of Syria is Damascus, and the head of Damascus is Rezin; and within threescore and five years shall Ephraim be broken, that it be not a people.

23~ISAIAH 007|009` And the head of Ephraim is Samaria, and the head of Samaria is Remaliah's son. If you will not believe, surely you shall not be established.

23~ISAIAH 007|010` Moreover the Lord spoke again to Ahaz, saying,

23~ISAIAH 007|011` Ask you a sign of the Lord thy God; ask it either in the depth, or in the height above.

23~ISAIAH 007|012` But Ahaz said, I will not ask, neither will I tempt the Lord.

23~ISAIAH 007|013` And he said, Hear you now, O house of David; is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will you weary my God also?

23~ISAIAH 007|014` Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

23~ISAIAH 007|015` Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good.

23~ISAIAH 007|016` For before the child shall know to refuse the evil, and choose the good, the land that you hate shall be forsaken of both her kings.

23~ISAIAH 007|017` The Lord shall bring upon you, and upon thy people, and upon thy father's house, days that have not come, from the day that Ephraim departed from Judah; even the king of Assyria.

23~ISAIAH 007|018` 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.

23~ISAIAH 007|019` 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.

23~ISAIAH 007|020` In the same day shall the Lord shave with a rasor that is hired, namely, by them beyond the river, by the king of Assyria, the head, and the hair of the feet: and it shall also consume the beard.

23~ISAIAH 007|021` And it shall come to pass in that day, that a man shall nourish a young cow, and two sheep;

23~ISAIAH 007|022` 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~ISAIAH 007|023` 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.

23~ISAIAH 007|024` With arrows and with bows shall men come there; because all the land shall become briers and thorns.

23~ISAIAH 007|025` And on all hills that shall be digged with the mattock, there shall not come there the fear of briers and thorns: but it shall be for the sending forth of oxen, and for the treading of lesser cattle.

23~ISAIAH 008|001` Moreover the Lord said to me, Take you a great roll, and write in it with a man's pen concerning Mahershalalhashbaz.

23~ISAIAH 008|002` And I took to me faithful witnesses to record, Uriah the priest, and Zechariah the son of Jeberechiah.

23~ISAIAH 008|003` And I went to the prophetess; and she conceived, and bare a son. Then said the Lord to me, Call his name Mahershalalhashbaz.

23~ISAIAH 008|004` For before the child shall have knowledge to cry, My father, and my mother, the riches of Damascus and the spoil of Samaria shall be taken away before the king of Assyria.

23~ISAIAH 008|005` The Lord spoke also to me again, saying,

23~ISAIAH 008|006` Forasmuch as this people refuseth the waters of Shiloah that go softly, and rejoice in Rezin and Remaliah's son;

23~ISAIAH 008|007` Now therefore, behold, the Lord brings 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:

23~ISAIAH 008|008` 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 Immanuel.

23~ISAIAH 008|009` Associate yourselves, O you people, and you shall be broken in pieces; and give ear, all you of far countries: gird yourselves, and you shall be broken in pieces; gird yourselves, and you shall be broken in pieces.

23~ISAIAH 008|010` Take counsel together, and it shall come to nought; speak the word, and it shall not stand: for God is with us.

23~ISAIAH 008|011` For the Lord spoke thus to me with a strong hand, and instructed me that I should not walk in the way of this people, saying,

23~ISAIAH 008|012` Say you not, A confederacy, to all them to whom this people shall say, A confederacy; neither fear you their fear, nor be afraid.

23~ISAIAH 008|013` Sanctify the Lord of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.

23~ISAIAH 008|014` And he shall be for 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.

23~ISAIAH 008|015` And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be taken.

23~ISAIAH 008|016` Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples.

23~ISAIAH 008|017` And I will wait upon the Lord, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him.

23~ISAIAH 008|018` 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.

23~ISAIAH 008|019` And when they shall say to you, Seek to them that have familiar spirits, and to wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek to their God? for the living to the dead?

23~ISAIAH 008|020` To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

23~ISAIAH 008|021` 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.

23~ISAIAH 008|022` And they shall look to the earth; and behold trouble and darkness, dimness of anguish; and they shall be driven to darkness.

23~ISAIAH 009|001` Nevertheless the dimness shall not be such as was in her vexation, when at the first he lightly afflicted the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, and afterward did more grievously afflict her by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, in Galilee of the nations.

23~ISAIAH 009|002` 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.

23~ISAIAH 009|003` You hast multiplied the nation, and not increased the joy: they joy before you according to the joy in harvest, and as men rejoice when they divide the spoil.

23~ISAIAH 009|004` For you hast broken the yoke of his burden, and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, as in the day of Midian.

23~ISAIAH 009|005` 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.

23~ISAIAH 009|006` 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, Counseller, The mighty God, the everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

23~ISAIAH 009|007` 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.

23~ISAIAH 009|008` The Lord sent a word into Jacob, and it hath lighted upon Israel.

23~ISAIAH 009|009` And all the people shall know, even Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria, that say in the pride and stoutness of heart,

23~ISAIAH 009|010` The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycomores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.

23~ISAIAH 009|011` Therefore the Lord shall set up the adversaries of Rezin against him, and join his enemies together;

23~ISAIAH 009|012` The Syrians before, 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.

23~ISAIAH 009|013` For the people turneth not to him that assults them, neither do they seek the Lord of hosts.

23~ISAIAH 009|014` Therefore the Lord will cut off from Israel head and tail, branch and rush, in one day.

23~ISAIAH 009|015` The ancient and honourable, he is the head; and the prophet that teaches lies, he is the tail.

23~ISAIAH 009|016` For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.

23~ISAIAH 009|017` 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 speaks folly. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

23~ISAIAH 009|018` For wickedness burn 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.

23~ISAIAH 009|019` 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.

23~ISAIAH 009|020` 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:

23~ISAIAH 009|021` Manasseh, Ephraim; and Ephraim, Manasseh: and they together shall be against Judah. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

23~ISAIAH 010|001` Woe to them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed;

23~ISAIAH 010|002` 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!

23~ISAIAH 010|003` And what will you do in the day of visitation, and in the desolation which shall come from far? to whom will you flee for help? and where will you leave your glory?

23~ISAIAH 010|004` 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.

23~ISAIAH 010|005` O Assyrian, the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation.

23~ISAIAH 010|006` 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.

23~ISAIAH 010|007` 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.

23~ISAIAH 010|008` For he saith, Are not my princes altogether kings?

23~ISAIAH 010|009` Is not Calno as Carchemish? is not Hamath as Arpad? is not Samaria as Damascus?

23~ISAIAH 010|010` As my hand hath found the kingdoms of the idols, and whose graven images did excel them of Jerusalem and of Samaria;

23~ISAIAH 010|011` Shall I not, as I have done to Samaria and her idols, so do to Jerusalem and her idols?

23~ISAIAH 010|012` 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.

23~ISAIAH 010|013` 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:

23~ISAIAH 010|014` 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 peeped.

23~ISAIAH 010|015` Shall the axe 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.

23~ISAIAH 010|016` 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.

23~ISAIAH 010|017` 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;

23~ISAIAH 010|018` And shall consume the glory of his forest, and of his fruitful field, both soul and body: and they shall be as when a standardbearer fainteth.

23~ISAIAH 010|019` And the rest of the trees of his forest shall be few, that a child may write them.

23~ISAIAH 010|020` 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.

23~ISAIAH 010|021` The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, to the mighty God.

23~ISAIAH 010|022` 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~ISAIAH 010|023` For the Lord God of hosts shall make a consumption, even determined, in the midst of all the land.

23~ISAIAH 010|024` Therefore thus saith the Lord God of hosts, O my people that dwellest in Zion, be not afraid of the Assyrian: he shall smite you with a rod, and shall lift up his staff against you, after the manner of Egypt.

23~ISAIAH 010|025` For yet a very little while, and the indignation shall cease, and mine anger in their destruction.

23~ISAIAH 010|026` And the Lord of hosts shall stir up a scourge for him according to the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb: and as his rod was upon the sea, so shall he lift it up after the manner of Egypt.

23~ISAIAH 010|027` And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.

23~ISAIAH 010|028` He is come to Aiath, he is passed to Migron; at Michmash he hath laid up his carriages:

23~ISAIAH 010|029` They are gone over the passage: they have taken up their lodging at Geba; Ramah is afraid; Gibeah of Saul is fled.

23~ISAIAH 010|030` Lift up thy voice, O daughter of Gallim: cause it to be heard to Laish, O poor Anathoth.

23~ISAIAH 010|031` Madmenah is removed; the inhabitants of Gebim gather themselves to flee.

23~ISAIAH 010|032` 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.

23~ISAIAH 010|033` 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.

23~ISAIAH 010|034` And he shall cut down the thickets of the forest with iron, and Lebanon shall fall by a mighty one.

23~ISAIAH 011|001` And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:

23~ISAIAH 011|002` 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;

23~ISAIAH 011|003` 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:

23~ISAIAH 011|004` 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.

23~ISAIAH 011|005` And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.

23~ISAIAH 011|006` 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.

23~ISAIAH 011|007` And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.

23~ISAIAH 011|008` And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den.

23~ISAIAH 011|009` 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.

23~ISAIAH 011|010` And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.

23~ISAIAH 011|011` 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 Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.

23~ISAIAH 011|012` 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.

23~ISAIAH 011|013` The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex Ephraim.

23~ISAIAH 011|014` But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west; they shall spoil them of the east together: they shall lay their hand upon Edom and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them.

23~ISAIAH 011|015` 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.

23~ISAIAH 011|016` 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.

23~ISAIAH 012|001` And in that day you shalt say, O Lord, I will praise you: though you wast angry with me, yours anger is turned away, and you comfortedst me.

23~ISAIAH 012|002` Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.

23~ISAIAH 012|003` Therefore with joy shall you draw water out of the wells of salvation.

23~ISAIAH 012|004` And in that day shall you say, Praise the Lord, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted.

23~ISAIAH 012|005` Sing to the Lord; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth.

23~ISAIAH 012|006` Cry out and shout, you inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of you.

23~ISAIAH 013|001` The burden of Babylon, which Isaiah the son of Amoz did see.

23~ISAIAH 013|002` Lift you up a banner upon the high mountain, exalt the voice to them, shake the hand, that they may go into the gates of the nobles.

23~ISAIAH 013|003` I have commanded my sanctified ones, I have also called my mighty ones for mine anger, even them that rejoice in my highness.

23~ISAIAH 013|004` The noise of a multitude in the mountains, like as of a great people; a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together: the Lord of hosts mustereth the host of the battle.

23~ISAIAH 013|005` They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, even the Lord, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land.

23~ISAIAH 013|006` Howl you; for the day of the Lord is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.

23~ISAIAH 013|007` Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt:

23~ISAIAH 013|008` And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.

23~ISAIAH 013|009` Behold, the day of the Lord comes, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.

23~ISAIAH 013|010` For the stars of 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.

23~ISAIAH 013|011` 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.

23~ISAIAH 013|012` I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.

23~ISAIAH 013|013` Therefore I will shake the 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.

23~ISAIAH 013|014` And it shall be as the chased roe, and as a sheep that no man takes up: they shall every man turn to his own people, and flee every one into his own land.

23~ISAIAH 013|015` Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is joined to them shall fall by the sword.

23~ISAIAH 013|016` Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished.

23~ISAIAH 013|017` Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, which shall not regard silver; and as for gold, they shall not delight in it.

23~ISAIAH 013|018` 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.

23~ISAIAH 013|019` And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees' excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.

23~ISAIAH 013|020` It shall never be inhabited, neither shall it be lived in from generation to generation: neither shall the Arabian pitch tent there; neither shall the shepherds make their fold there.

23~ISAIAH 013|021` 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.

23~ISAIAH 013|022` And the wild beasts of the 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.

23~ISAIAH 014|001` 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.

23~ISAIAH 014|002` 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 they were; and they shall rule over their oppressors.

23~ISAIAH 014|003` And it shall come to pass in the day that the Lord shall give you rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein you wast made to serve,

23~ISAIAH 014|004` That you shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased!

23~ISAIAH 014|005` The Lord hath broken the staff of the wicked, and the sceptre of the rulers.

23~ISAIAH 014|006` He who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, and none hindereth.

23~ISAIAH 014|007` The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they break forth into singing.

23~ISAIAH 014|008` You, the fir trees rejoice at you, and the cedars of Lebanon, saying, Since you art laid down, no feller is come up against us.

23~ISAIAH 014|009` Hell from beneath is moved for you to meet you at thy coming: it stirs up the dead for you, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.

23~ISAIAH 014|010` All they shall speak and say to you, Art you also become weak as we? art you become like to us?

23~ISAIAH 014|011` Your pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under you, and the worms cover you.

23~ISAIAH 014|012` How art you fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art you cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

23~ISAIAH 014|013` For you hast said in yours heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

23~ISAIAH 014|014` I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

23~ISAIAH 014|015` Yet you shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

23~ISAIAH 014|016` They that see you shall narrowly look upon you, and consider you, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;

23~ISAIAH 014|017` That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?

23~ISAIAH 014|018` All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house.

23~ISAIAH 014|019` But you 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 body trodden under feet.

23~ISAIAH 014|020` You shalt not be joined with them in burial, because you hast destroyed thy land, and slain thy people: the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned.

23~ISAIAH 014|021` 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.

23~ISAIAH 014|022` 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~ISAIAH 014|023` 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.

23~ISAIAH 014|024` 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:

23~ISAIAH 014|025` 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.

23~ISAIAH 014|026` This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations.

23~ISAIAH 014|027` For the Lord of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?

23~ISAIAH 014|028` In the year that king Ahaz died was this burden.

23~ISAIAH 014|029` Rejoice not you, whole Palestina, because the rod of him that smote you is broken: for out of the serpent's root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent.

23~ISAIAH 014|030` 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.

23~ISAIAH 014|031` Howl, O gate; cry, O city; you, whole Palestina, art dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke, and none shall be alone in his appointed times.

23~ISAIAH 014|032` 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.

23~ISAIAH 015|001` 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;

23~ISAIAH 015|002` He is gone up to Bajith, and to Dibon, the high places, to weep: Moab shall howl over Nebo, and over Medeba: on all their heads shall be baldness, and every beard cut off.

23~ISAIAH 015|003` 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.

23~ISAIAH 015|004` And Heshbon shall cry, and Elealeh: their voice shall be heard even to Jahaz: therefore the armed soldiers of Moab shall cry out; his life shall be grievous to him.

23~ISAIAH 015|005` My heart shall cry out for Moab; his fugitives shall flee to Zoar, an heifer of three years old: for by the mounting up of Luhith with weeping shall they go it up; for in the way of Horonaim they shall raise up a cry of destruction.

23~ISAIAH 015|006` For the waters of Nimrim shall be desolate: for the hay is withered away, the grass faileth, there is no green thing.

23~ISAIAH 015|007` Therefore the abundance they have gotten, and that which they have laid up, shall they carry away to the brook of the willows.

23~ISAIAH 015|008` For the cry is gone round about the borders of Moab; the howling thereof to Eglaim, and the howling thereof to Beerelim.

23~ISAIAH 015|009` For the waters of Dimon shall be full of blood: for I will bring more upon Dimon, lions upon him that escapeth of Moab, and upon the remnant of the land.

23~ISAIAH 016|001` Send you the lamb to the ruler of the land from Sela to the wilderness, to the mount of the daughter of Zion.

23~ISAIAH 016|002` 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.

23~ISAIAH 016|003` Take counsel, execute judgment; make thy shadow as the night in the midst of the noonday; hide the outcasts; bewray not him that wandereth.

23~ISAIAH 016|004` Let mine outcasts dwell with you, Moab; be you a covert to them from the face of the spoiler: for the extortioner is at an end, the spoiler ceases, the oppressors are consumed out of the land.

23~ISAIAH 016|005` 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.

23~ISAIAH 016|006` 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.

23~ISAIAH 016|007` Therefore shall Moab howl for Moab, every one shall howl: for the foundations of Kirhareseth shall you mourn; surely they are stricken.

23~ISAIAH 016|008` For the fields of Heshbon languish, and the vine of Sibmah: the lords of the heathen have broken down the principal plants thereof, they are come even to Jazer, they wandered through the wilderness: her branches are stretched out, they are gone over the sea.

23~ISAIAH 016|009` Therefore I will bewail with the weeping of Jazer the vine of Sibmah: I will water you with my tears, O Heshbon, and Elealeh: for the shouting for thy summer fruits and for thy harvest is fallen.

23~ISAIAH 016|010` 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.

23~ISAIAH 016|011` Wherefore my bowels shall sound like an harp for Moab, and mine inward parts for Kirharesh.

23~ISAIAH 016|012` 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.

23~ISAIAH 016|013` This is the word that the Lord hath spoken concerning Moab since that time.

23~ISAIAH 016|014` 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.

23~ISAIAH 017|001` The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.

23~ISAIAH 017|002` The cities of Aroer are forsaken: they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make them afraid.

23~ISAIAH 017|003` The fortress also shall cease from Ephraim, 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.

23~ISAIAH 017|004` 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.

23~ISAIAH 017|005` 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 Rephaim.

23~ISAIAH 017|006` 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.

23~ISAIAH 017|007` At that day shall a man look to his Maker, and his eyes shall have respect to the Holy One of Israel.

23~ISAIAH 017|008` 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.

23~ISAIAH 017|009` 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.

23~ISAIAH 017|010` Because you hast forgotten the God of thy salvation, and hast not been mindful of the rock of thy strength, therefore shalt you plant pleasant plants, and shalt set it with strange slips:

23~ISAIAH 017|011` In the day shalt you make thy plant to grow, and in the morning shalt you make thy seed to flourish: but the harvest shall be a heap in the day of grief and of desperate sorrow.

23~ISAIAH 017|012` 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!

23~ISAIAH 017|013` 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.

23~ISAIAH 017|014` And behold at eveningtide trouble; and before the morning he is not. This is the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us.

23~ISAIAH 018|001` Woe to the land shadowing with wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia:

23~ISAIAH 018|002` That sends ambassadors by the sea, even in vessels of bulrushes upon the waters, saying, Go, you 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 sp

23~ISAIAH 018|003` All you inhabitants of the world, and dwellers on the earth, see you, when he lifteth up an ensign on the mountains; and when he blows a trumpet, hear you.

23~ISAIAH 018|004` For so the Lord said to 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.

23~ISAIAH 018|005` For before the harvest, when the bud is perfect, and the sour grape is ripening in the flower, he shall both cut off the sprigs with pruning hooks, and take away and cut down the branches.

23~ISAIAH 018|006` They shall be left together to the fowls of the mountains, and to the beasts of the earth: and the fowls shall summer upon them, and all the beasts of the earth shall winter upon them.

23~ISAIAH 018|007` In that time shall the present be brought to the Lord of hosts of a people scattered and peeled, and from a people terrible from their beginning hitherto; a 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.

23~ISAIAH 019|001` 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.

23~ISAIAH 019|002` 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.

23~ISAIAH 019|003` 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.

23~ISAIAH 019|004` 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.

23~ISAIAH 019|005` And the waters shall fail from the sea, and the river shall be wasted and dried up.

23~ISAIAH 019|006` And they shall turn the rivers far away; and the brooks of defence shall be emptied and dried up: the reeds and flags shall wither.

23~ISAIAH 019|007` The paper reeds by the brooks, by the mouth of the brooks, and every thing sown by the brooks, shall wither, be driven away, and be no more.

23~ISAIAH 019|008` The fishers also shall mourn, and all they that cast angle into the brooks shall lament, and they that spread nets upon the waters shall languish.

23~ISAIAH 019|009` Moreover they that work in fine flax, and they that weave networks, shall be confounded.

23~ISAIAH 019|010` And they shall be broken in the purposes thereof, all that make sluices and ponds for fish.

23~ISAIAH 019|011` Surely the princes of Zoan are fools, the counsel of the wise counsellers of Pharaoh is become brutish: how say you to Pharaoh, I am the son of the wise, the son of ancient kings?

23~ISAIAH 019|012` Where are they? where are thy wise men? and let them tell you now, and let them know what the Lord of hosts hath purposed upon Egypt.

23~ISAIAH 019|013` The princes of Zoan are become fools, the princes of Noph are deceived; they have also seduced Egypt, even they that are the stay of the tribes thereof.

23~ISAIAH 019|014` 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.

23~ISAIAH 019|015` Neither shall there be any work for Egypt, which the head or tail, branch or rush, may do.

23~ISAIAH 019|016` In that day shall Egypt be like to 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.

23~ISAIAH 019|017` And the land of Judah shall be a terror to 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.

23~ISAIAH 019|018` 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.

23~ISAIAH 019|019` 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.

23~ISAIAH 019|020` And it shall be for a sign and for a witness to the Lord of hosts in the land of Egypt: for they shall cry to the Lord because of the oppressors, and he shall send them a saviour, and a great one, and he shall deliver them.

23~ISAIAH 019|021` 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 to the Lord, and perform it.

23~ISAIAH 019|022` And the Lord shall smite Egypt: he shall smite and heal it: and they shall return even to the Lord, and he shall be intreated of them, and shall heal them.

23~ISAIAH 019|023` In that day shall there be a 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.

23~ISAIAH 019|024` In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land:

23~ISAIAH 019|025` Whom the Lord of hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel mine inheritance.

23~ISAIAH 020|001` In the year that Tartan came to Ashdod, (when Sargon the king of Assyria sent him,) and fought against Ashdod, and took it;

23~ISAIAH 020|002` At the same time spoke 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.

23~ISAIAH 020|003` 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 Ethiopia;

23~ISAIAH 020|004` So shall the king of Assyria lead away the Egyptians prisoners, and the Ethiopians captives, young and old, naked and barefoot, even with their buttocks uncovered, to the shame of Egypt.

23~ISAIAH 020|005` And they shall be afraid and ashamed of Ethiopia their expectation, and of Egypt their glory.

23~ISAIAH 020|006` And the inhabitant of this isle shall say in that day, Behold, such is our expectation, whither we flee for help to be delivered from the king of Assyria: and how shall we escape?

23~ISAIAH 021|001` The burden of the desert of the sea. As whirlwinds in the south pass through; so it comes from the desert, from a terrible land.

23~ISAIAH 021|002` A grievous vision is declared to me; the treacherous dealer deals treacherously, and the spoiler spoils. Go up, O Elam: besiege, O Media; all the sighing thereof have I made to cease.

23~ISAIAH 021|003` Therefore are my loins filled with pain: pangs have taken hold upon me, as the pangs of a woman that travaileth: I was bowed down at the hearing of it; I was dismayed at the seeing of it.

23~ISAIAH 021|004` My heart panted, fearfulness affrighted me: the night of my pleasure hath he turned into fear to me.

23~ISAIAH 021|005` Prepare the table, watch in the watchtower, eat, drink: arise, you princes, and anoint the shield.

23~ISAIAH 021|006` For thus hath the Lord said to me, Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he sees.

23~ISAIAH 021|007` 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:

23~ISAIAH 021|008` 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:

23~ISAIAH 021|009` And, behold, here comes 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 to the ground.

23~ISAIAH 021|010` 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 to you.

23~ISAIAH 021|011` The burden of Dumah. He call to me out of Seir, Watchman, what of the night? Watchman, what of the night?

23~ISAIAH 021|012` The watchman said, The morning comes, and also the night: if you will inquire, inquire you: return, come.

23~ISAIAH 021|013` The burden upon Arabia. In the forest in Arabia shall you lodge, O you travelling companies of Dedanim.

23~ISAIAH 021|014` The inhabitants of the land of Tema brought water to him that was thirsty, they prevented with their bread him that fled.

23~ISAIAH 021|015` For they fled from the swords, from the drawn sword, and from the bent bow, and from the grievousness of war.

23~ISAIAH 021|016` For thus hath the Lord said to me, Within a year, according to the years of an hireling, and all the glory of Kedar shall fail:

23~ISAIAH 021|017` And the residue of the number of archers, the mighty men of the children of Kedar, shall be diminished: for the Lord God of Israel hath spoken it.

23~ISAIAH 022|001` The burden of the valley of vision. What ails you now, that you art wholly gone up to the housetops?

23~ISAIAH 022|002` You that art full of stirs, a tumultuous city, a joyous city: thy slain men are not slain with the sword, nor dead in battle.

23~ISAIAH 022|003` All thy rulers are fled together, they are bound by the archers: all that are found in you are bound together, which have fled from far.

23~ISAIAH 022|004` Therefore said I, Look away from me; I will weep bitterly, labour not to comfort me, because of the spoiling of the daughter of my people.

23~ISAIAH 022|005` 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.

23~ISAIAH 022|006` And Elam bare the quiver with chariots of men and horsemen, and Kir uncovered the shield.

23~ISAIAH 022|007` 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.

23~ISAIAH 022|008` And he discovered the covering of Judah, and you didst look in that day to the armor of the house of the forest.

23~ISAIAH 022|009` Ye have seen also the breaches of the city of David, that they are many: and you gathered together the waters of the lower pool.

23~ISAIAH 022|010` And you have numbered the houses of Jerusalem, and the houses have you broken down to fortify the wall.

23~ISAIAH 022|011` Ye made also a ditch between the two walls for the water of the old pool: but you have not looked to the maker thereof, neither had respect to him that fashioned it long ago.

23~ISAIAH 022|012` And in that day did the Lord God of hosts call to weeping, and to mourning, and to baldness, and to girding with sackcloth:

23~ISAIAH 022|013` 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.

23~ISAIAH 022|014` And it was revealed in mine ears by the Lord of hosts, Surely this iniquity shall not be purged from you till you die, saith the Lord God of hosts.

23~ISAIAH 022|015` Thus saith the Lord God of hosts, Go, get you to this treasurer, even to Shebna, which is over the house, and say,

23~ISAIAH 022|016` What hast you here? and whom hast you here, that you hast hewed you out a sepulchre here, as he that heweth him out a sepulchre on high, and that graveth an habitation for himself in a rock?

23~ISAIAH 022|017` Behold, the Lord will carry you away with a mighty captivity, and will surely cover you.

23~ISAIAH 022|018` He will surely violently turn and toss you like a ball into a large country: there shalt you die, and there the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lord's house.

23~ISAIAH 022|019` And I will drive you from thy station, and from thy state shall he pull you down.

23~ISAIAH 022|020` And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will call my servant Eliakim the son of Hilkiah:

23~ISAIAH 022|021` 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.

23~ISAIAH 022|022` And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.

23~ISAIAH 022|023` And I will fasten him as a nail in a sure place; and he shall be for a glorious throne to his father's house.

23~ISAIAH 022|024` And they shall hang upon him all the glory of his father's house, the offspring and the issue, all vessels of small quantity, from the vessels of cups, even to all the vessels of flagons.

23~ISAIAH 022|025` 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.

23~ISAIAH 023|001` The burden of Tyre. Howl, you ships of Tarshish; for it is laid waste, so that there is no house, no entering in: from the land of Chittim it is revealed to them.

23~ISAIAH 023|002` Be still, you inhabitants of the isle; you whom the merchants of Zidon, that pass over the sea, have replenished.

23~ISAIAH 023|003` And by great waters the seed of Sihor, the harvest of the river, is her revenue; and she is a mart of nations.

23~ISAIAH 023|004` Be you ashamed, O Zidon: 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.

23~ISAIAH 023|005` As at the report concerning Egypt, so shall they be sorely pained at the report of Tyre.

23~ISAIAH 023|006` Pass you over to Tarshish; howl, you inhabitants of the isle.

23~ISAIAH 023|007` Is this your joyous city, whose antiquity is of ancient days? her own feet shall carry her afar off to sojourn.

23~ISAIAH 023|008` Who hath taken this counsel against Tyre, the crowning city, whose merchants are princes, whose traffickers are the honourable of the earth?

23~ISAIAH 023|009` 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.

23~ISAIAH 023|010` Pass through thy land as a river, O daughter of Tarshish: there is no more strength.

23~ISAIAH 023|011` 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.

23~ISAIAH 023|012` And he said, You shalt no more rejoice, O you oppressed virgin, daughter of Zidon: arise, pass over to Chittim; there also shalt you have no rest.

23~ISAIAH 023|013` Behold the land of the Chaldeans; 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.

23~ISAIAH 023|014` Howl, you ships of Tarshish: for your strength is laid waste.

23~ISAIAH 023|015` And it shall come to pass in that day, that Tyre shall be forgotten seventy years, according to the days of one king: after the end of seventy years shall Tyre sing as an harlot.

23~ISAIAH 023|016` Take an harp, go about the city, you harlot that hast been forgotten; make sweet melody, sing many songs, that you mayest be remembered.

23~ISAIAH 023|017` 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.

23~ISAIAH 023|018` 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.

23~ISAIAH 024|001` Behold, the Lord maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scatters abroad the inhabitants thereof.

23~ISAIAH 024|002` 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 lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him.

23~ISAIAH 024|003` The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the Lord hath spoken this word.

23~ISAIAH 024|004` The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish.

23~ISAIAH 024|005` The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenient.

23~ISAIAH 024|006` 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.

23~ISAIAH 024|007` The new wine mourneth, the vine languisheth, all the merryhearted do sigh.

23~ISAIAH 024|008` The mirth of tabrets ceases, the noise of them that rejoice endeth, the joy of the harp ceases.

23~ISAIAH 024|009` They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink shall be bitter to them that drink it.

23~ISAIAH 024|010` The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut up, that no man may come in.

23~ISAIAH 024|011` There is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone.

23~ISAIAH 024|012` In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction.

23~ISAIAH 024|013` 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.

23~ISAIAH 024|014` They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of the Lord, they shall cry aloud from the sea.

23~ISAIAH 024|015` Wherefore glorify you the Lord in the fires, even the name of the Lord God of Israel in the isles of the sea.

23~ISAIAH 024|016` From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, even glory to the righteous. But I said, My leanness, my leanness, woe to me! the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously; yea, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously.

23~ISAIAH 024|017` Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon you, O inhabitant of the earth.

23~ISAIAH 024|018` And it shall come to pass, that he who fleeth from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that comes 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.

23~ISAIAH 024|019` The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly.

23~ISAIAH 024|020` The earth shall reel to and fro 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.

23~ISAIAH 024|021` 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.

23~ISAIAH 024|022` 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~ISAIAH 024|023` 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.

23~ISAIAH 025|001` O Lord, you art my God; I will exalt you, I will praise thy name; for you hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.

23~ISAIAH 025|002` For you 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.

23~ISAIAH 025|003` Therefore shall the strong people glorify you, the city of the terrible nations shall fear you.

23~ISAIAH 025|004` For you 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.

23~ISAIAH 025|005` You 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.

23~ISAIAH 025|006` And in this mountain shall the Lord of hosts make to 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.

23~ISAIAH 025|007` 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.

23~ISAIAH 025|008` 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.

23~ISAIAH 025|009` 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.

23~ISAIAH 025|010` 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.

23~ISAIAH 025|011` And he shall spread forth his hands in the midst of them, as he that swims spreads forth his hands to swim: and he shall bring down their pride together with the spoils of their hands.

23~ISAIAH 025|012` 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.

23~ISAIAH 026|001` In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah; We have a strong city; salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks.

23~ISAIAH 026|002` Open you the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in.

23~ISAIAH 026|003` You wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you: because he trusteth in you.

23~ISAIAH 026|004` Trust you in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength:

23~ISAIAH 026|005` For he brings down them that dwell on high; the lofty city, he layeth it low; he layeth it low, even to the ground; he brings it even to the dust.

23~ISAIAH 026|006` The foot shall tread it down, even the feet of the poor, and the steps of the needy.

23~ISAIAH 026|007` The way of the just is uprightness: you, most upright, dost weigh the path of the just.

23~ISAIAH 026|008` You, in the way of thy judgments, O Lord, have we waited for you; the desire of our soul Is to thy name, and to the remembrance of you.

23~ISAIAH 026|009` With my soul have I desired you in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek you early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.

23~ISAIAH 026|010` 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.

23~ISAIAH 026|011` 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 yours enemies shall devour them.

23~ISAIAH 026|012` Lord, you wilt ordain peace for us: for you also hast wrought all our works in us.

23~ISAIAH 026|013` O Lord our God, other lords beside you have had dominion over us: but by you only will we make mention of thy name.

23~ISAIAH 026|014` They are dead, they shall not live; they are deceased, they shall not rise: therefore hast you visited and destroyed them, and made all their memory to perish.

23~ISAIAH 026|015` You hast increased the nation, O Lord, you hast increased the nation: you art glorified: you hadst removed it far to all the ends of the earth.

23~ISAIAH 026|016` Lord, in trouble have they visited you, they poured out a prayer when thy chastening was upon them.

23~ISAIAH 026|017` Like as a woman with child, that draweth near the time of her delivery, is in pain, and cries out in her pangs; so have we been in thy sight, O Lord.

23~ISAIAH 026|018` 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.

23~ISAIAH 026|019` Your dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, you that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.

23~ISAIAH 026|020` Come, my people, enter you into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about you: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.

23~ISAIAH 026|021` For, behold, the Lord comes 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.

23~ISAIAH 027|001` In that day the Lord with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.

23~ISAIAH 027|002` In that day sing you to her, A vineyard of red wine.

23~ISAIAH 027|003` I the Lord do keep it; I will water it every moment: lest any hurt it, I will keep it night and day.

23~ISAIAH 027|004` 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.

23~ISAIAH 027|005` Or let him take hold of my strength, that he may make peace with me; and he shall make peace with me.

23~ISAIAH 027|006` 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.

23~ISAIAH 027|007` 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?

23~ISAIAH 027|008` In measure, when it shooteth forth, you wilt debate with it: he stays his rough wind in the day of the east wind.

23~ISAIAH 027|009` 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 calkstone that are beaten in sunder, the groves and images shall not stand up.

23~ISAIAH 027|010` Yet the defenced city shall be desolate, 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.

23~ISAIAH 027|011` 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.

23~ISAIAH 027|012` And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall beat off from the channel of the river to the stream of Egypt, and you shall be gathered one by one, O you children of Israel.

23~ISAIAH 027|013` 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.

23~ISAIAH 028|001` Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim, whose glorious beauty is a fading flower, which are on the head of the fat valleys of them that are overcome with wine!

23~ISAIAH 028|002` 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.

23~ISAIAH 028|003` The crown of pride, the drunkards of Ephraim, shall be trodden under feet:

23~ISAIAH 028|004` 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 sees, while it is yet in his hand he eateth it up.

23~ISAIAH 028|005` In that day shall the Lord of hosts be for a crown of glory, and for a diadem of beauty, to the residue of his people,

23~ISAIAH 028|006` And for a spirit of judgment to him that sits in judgment, and for strength to them that turn the battle to the gate.

23~ISAIAH 028|007` 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.

23~ISAIAH 028|008` For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, so that there is no place clean.

23~ISAIAH 028|009` 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.

23~ISAIAH 028|010` For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

23~ISAIAH 028|011` For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people.

23~ISAIAH 028|012` To whom he said, This is the rest where with you may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.

23~ISAIAH 028|013` But the word of the Lord was to 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.

23~ISAIAH 028|014` Wherefore hear the word of the Lord, you scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem.

23~ISAIAH 028|015` Because you have said, We have made a covenient with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come to us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:

23~ISAIAH 028|016` 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.

23~ISAIAH 028|017` Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.

23~ISAIAH 028|018` And your covenient with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then you shall be trodden down by it.

23~ISAIAH 028|019` 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.

23~ISAIAH 028|020` For the bed is shorter than that a man can stretch himself on it: and the covering narrower than that he can wrap himself in it.

23~ISAIAH 028|021` For the Lord shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act.

23~ISAIAH 028|022` Now therefore be you 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~ISAIAH 028|023` Give you ear, and hear my voice; hearken, and hear my speech.

23~ISAIAH 028|024` Doth the plowman plow all day to sow? doth he open and break the clods of his ground?

23~ISAIAH 028|025` 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?

23~ISAIAH 028|026` For his God doth instruct him to discretion, and doth teach him.

23~ISAIAH 028|027` 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.

23~ISAIAH 028|028` Bread corn 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.

23~ISAIAH 028|029` This also comes forth from the Lord of hosts, which is wonderful in counsel, and excellent in working.

23~ISAIAH 029|001` Woe to Ariel, to Ariel, the city where David lived! add you year to year; let them kill sacrifices.

23~ISAIAH 029|002` Yet I will distress Ariel, and there shall be heaviness and sorrow: and it shall be to me as Ariel.

23~ISAIAH 029|003` And I will camp against you round about, and will lay siege against you with a mount, and I will raise forts against you.

23~ISAIAH 029|004` And you 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.

23~ISAIAH 029|005` 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.

23~ISAIAH 029|006` You 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.

23~ISAIAH 029|007` And the multitude of all the nations that fight against Ariel, even all that fight against her and her munition, and that distress her, shall be as a dream of a night vision.

23~ISAIAH 029|008` 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.

23~ISAIAH 029|009` Stay yourselves, and wonder; cry you out, and cry: they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink.

23~ISAIAH 029|010` 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.

23~ISAIAH 029|011` And the vision of all is become to you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray you: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed:

23~ISAIAH 029|012` And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray you: and he saith, I am not learned.

23~ISAIAH 029|013` 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:

23~ISAIAH 029|014` 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.

23~ISAIAH 029|015` Woe to them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the Lord, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who sees us? and who knoweth us?

23~ISAIAH 029|016` Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter's 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?

23~ISAIAH 029|017` 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?

23~ISAIAH 029|018` 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.

23~ISAIAH 029|019` The meek also shall increase their joy in the Lord, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.

23~ISAIAH 029|020` For the terrible one is brought to nought, and the offender is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off:

23~ISAIAH 029|021` 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.

23~ISAIAH 029|022` 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~ISAIAH 029|023` But when he sees 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.

23~ISAIAH 029|024` They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.

23~ISAIAH 030|001` 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:

23~ISAIAH 030|002` 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!

23~ISAIAH 030|003` Therefore shall the strength of Pharaoh be your shame, and the trust in the shadow of Egypt your confusion.

23~ISAIAH 030|004` For his princes were at Zoan, and his ambassadors came to Hanes.

23~ISAIAH 030|005` 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.

23~ISAIAH 030|006` The burden of the beasts of the south: into the land of trouble and anguish, from where 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.

23~ISAIAH 030|007` For the Egyptians shall help in vain, and to no purpose: therefore have I cried concerning this, Their strength is to sit still.

23~ISAIAH 030|008` Now 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:

23~ISAIAH 030|009` That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the Lord:

23~ISAIAH 030|010` Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not to us right things, speak to us smooth things, prophesy deceits:

23~ISAIAH 030|011` Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.

23~ISAIAH 030|012` Wherefore thus saith the Holy One of Israel, Because you despise this word, and trust in oppression and perverseness, and stay thereon:

23~ISAIAH 030|013` Therefore this iniquity shall be to you as a breach ready to fall, swelling out in a high wall, whose breaking comes suddenly at an instant.

23~ISAIAH 030|014` 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 sherd to take fire from the hearth, or to take water withal out of the pit.

23~ISAIAH 030|015` For thus saith the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall you be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and you would not.

23~ISAIAH 030|016` But you said, No; for we will flee upon horses; therefore shall you flee: and, We will ride upon the swift; therefore shall they that pursue you be swift.

23~ISAIAH 030|017` One thousand shall flee at the rebuke of one; at the rebuke of five shall you flee: till you be left as a beacon upon the top of a mountain, and as an ensign on an hill.

23~ISAIAH 030|018` And therefore will the Lord wait, that he may be gracious to 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.

23~ISAIAH 030|019` For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem: you shalt weep no more: he will be very gracious to you at the voice of thy cry; when he shall hear it, he will answer you.

23~ISAIAH 030|020` 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 yours eyes shall see thy teachers:

23~ISAIAH 030|021` And yours ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way, walk you in it, when you turn to the right hand, and when you turn to the left.

23~ISAIAH 030|022` Ye shall defile also the covering of thy graven images of silver, and the ornament of thy molten images of gold: you shalt cast them away as a menstruous cloth; you shalt say to it, Get you hence.

23~ISAIAH 030|023` Then shall he give the rain of thy seed, that you 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.

23~ISAIAH 030|024` 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.

23~ISAIAH 030|025` 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.

23~ISAIAH 030|026` 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 bind up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.

23~ISAIAH 030|027` Behold, the name of the Lord comes 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:

23~ISAIAH 030|028` 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.

23~ISAIAH 030|029` 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.

23~ISAIAH 030|030` 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.

23~ISAIAH 030|031` For through the voice of the Lord shall the Assyrian be beaten down, which smote with a rod.

23~ISAIAH 030|032` 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.

23~ISAIAH 030|033` For Tophet 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.

23~ISAIAH 031|001` Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not to the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the Lord!

23~ISAIAH 031|002` 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.

23~ISAIAH 031|003` 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.

23~ISAIAH 031|004` For thus hath the Lord spoken to 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

23~ISAIAH 031|005` As birds flying, so will the Lord of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver it; and passing over he will preserve it.

23~ISAIAH 031|006` Turn you to him from whom the children of Israel have deeply revolted.

23~ISAIAH 031|007` For in that day every man shall cast away his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which your own hands have made to you for a sin.

23~ISAIAH 031|008` Then shall the Assyrian fall with the sword, not of a mighty man; and the sword, not of a mean man, shall devour him: but he shall flee from the sword, and his young men shall be discomfited.

23~ISAIAH 031|009` 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.

23~ISAIAH 032|001` Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment.

23~ISAIAH 032|002` 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.

23~ISAIAH 032|003` And the eyes of them that see shall not be dim, and the ears of them that hear shall hearken.

23~ISAIAH 032|004` The heart also of the rash shall understand knowledge, and the tongue of the stammerers shall be ready to speak plainly.

23~ISAIAH 032|005` The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful.

23~ISAIAH 032|006` For the vile person will speak villany, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise 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.

23~ISAIAH 032|007` The instruments also of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaks right.

23~ISAIAH 032|008` But the liberal deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand.

23~ISAIAH 032|009` Rise up, you women that are at ease; hear my voice, you careless daughters; give ear to my speech.

23~ISAIAH 032|010` Many days and years shall you be troubled, you careless women: for the vintage shall fail, the gathering shall not come.

23~ISAIAH 032|011` Tremble, you women that are at ease; be troubled, you careless ones: strip you, and make you bare, and gird sackcloth upon your loins.

23~ISAIAH 032|012` They shall lament for the teats, for the pleasant fields, for the fruitful vine.

23~ISAIAH 032|013` Upon the land of my people shall come up thorns and briers; yea, upon all the houses of joy in the joyous city:

23~ISAIAH 032|014` 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;

23~ISAIAH 032|015` 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.

23~ISAIAH 032|016` Then judgment shall dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness remain in the fruitful field.

23~ISAIAH 032|017` And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever.

23~ISAIAH 032|018` And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places;

23~ISAIAH 032|019` When it shall hail, coming down on the forest; and the city shall be low in a low place.

23~ISAIAH 032|020` Blessed are you that sow beside all waters, that send forth there the feet of the ox and the ass.

23~ISAIAH 033|001` Woe to you that spoils, and you wast not spoiled; and dealest treacherously, and they dealt not treacherously with you! when you shalt cease to spoil, you shalt be spoiled; and when you shalt make an end to deal treacherously, they shall deal treacherously with

23~ISAIAH 033|002` O Lord, be gracious to us; we have waited for you: be you their arm every morning, our salvation also in the time of trouble.

23~ISAIAH 033|003` At the noise of the tumult the people fled; at the lifting up of thyself the nations were scattered.

23~ISAIAH 033|004` 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.

23~ISAIAH 033|005` The Lord is exalted; for he dwelleth on high: he hath filled Zion with judgment and righteousness.

23~ISAIAH 033|006` And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the Lord is his treasure.

23~ISAIAH 033|007` Behold, their valiant ones shall cry without: the ambassadors of peace shall weep bitterly.

23~ISAIAH 033|008` The highways lie waste, the wayfaring man ceases: he hath broken the covenient, he hath despised the cities, he regardeth no man.

23~ISAIAH 033|009` The earth mourneth and languisheth: Lebanon is ashamed and hewn down: Sharon is like a wilderness; and Bashan and Carmel shake off their fruits.

23~ISAIAH 033|010` Now will I rise, saith the Lord; now will I be exalted; now will I lift up myself.

23~ISAIAH 033|011` Ye shall conceive chaff, you shall bring forth stubble: your breath, as fire, shall devour you.

23~ISAIAH 033|012` And the people shall be as the burnings of lime: as thorns cut up shall they be burned in the fire.

23~ISAIAH 033|013` Hear, you that are far off, what I have done; and, you that are near, acknowledge my might.

23~ISAIAH 033|014` 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?

23~ISAIAH 033|015` He that walketh righteously, and speaks uprightly; he that despises the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stops his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil;

23~ISAIAH 033|016` 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.

23~ISAIAH 033|017` Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off.

23~ISAIAH 033|018` Thine heart shall meditate terror. Where is the scribe? where is the receiver? where is he that counted the towers?

23~ISAIAH 033|019` You shalt not see a fierce people, a people of a deeper speech than you canst perceive; of a stammering tongue, that you canst not understand.

23~ISAIAH 033|020` Look upon Zion, the city of our solemnities: yours 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.

23~ISAIAH 033|021` But there the glorious Lord will be to us a place of broad rivers and streams; wherein shall go no galley with oars, neither shall gallant ship pass thereby.

23~ISAIAH 033|022` For the Lord is our judge, the Lord is our lawgiver, the Lord is our king; he will save us.

23~ISAIAH 033|023` Your 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.

23~ISAIAH 033|024` And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity.

23~ISAIAH 034|001` Come near, you nations, to hear; and hearken, you people: let the earth hear, and all that is therein; the world, and all things that come forth of it.

23~ISAIAH 034|002` 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.

23~ISAIAH 034|003` Their slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their bodies, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood.

23~ISAIAH 034|004` And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the 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.

23~ISAIAH 034|005` For my sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Idumea, and upon the people of my curse, to judgment.

23~ISAIAH 034|006` 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 Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Idumea.

23~ISAIAH 034|007` 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.

23~ISAIAH 034|008` For it is the day of the Lord's vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion.

23~ISAIAH 034|009` And the streams thereof shall be turned into pitch, and the dust thereof into brimstone, and the land thereof shall become burning pitch.

23~ISAIAH 034|010` 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.

23~ISAIAH 034|011` 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.

23~ISAIAH 034|012` They shall call the nobles thereof to the kingdom, but none shall be there, and all her princes shall be nothing.

23~ISAIAH 034|013` 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.

23~ISAIAH 034|014` 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.

23~ISAIAH 034|015` There shall the great owl make her nest, and lay, and hatch, and gather under her shadow: there shall the vultures also be gathered, every one with her mate.

23~ISAIAH 034|016` Seek you out of the book of the Lord, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them.

23~ISAIAH 034|017` And he hath cast the lot for them, and his hand hath divided it to them by line: they shall possess it for ever, from generation to generation shall they dwell therein.

23~ISAIAH 035|001` The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.

23~ISAIAH 035|002` It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given to it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of the Lord, and the excellency of our God.

23~ISAIAH 035|003` Strengthen you the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees.

23~ISAIAH 035|004` 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.

23~ISAIAH 035|005` Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.

23~ISAIAH 035|006` 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.

23~ISAIAH 035|007` 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.

23~ISAIAH 035|008` 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.

23~ISAIAH 035|009` 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:

23~ISAIAH 035|010` 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.

23~ISAIAH 036|001` Now it came to pass in the fourteenth year of king Hezekiah, that Sennacherib king of Assyria came up against all the defenced cities of Judah, and took them.

23~ISAIAH 036|002` And the king of Assyria sent Rabshakeh from Lachish to Jerusalem to king Hezekiah with a great army. And he stood by the conduit of the upper pool in the highway of the fuller's field.

23~ISAIAH 036|003` Then came forth to him Eliakim, Hilkiah's son, which was over the house, and Shebna the scribe, and Joah, Asaph's son, the recorder.

23~ISAIAH 036|004` And Rabshakeh said to them, Say you now to Hezekiah, Thus saith the great king, the king of Assyria, What confidence is this wherein you trustest?

23~ISAIAH 036|005` I say, sayest you, (but they are but vain words) I have counsel and strength for war: now on whom dost you trust, that you rebellest against me?

23~ISAIAH 036|006` Lo, you 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.

23~ISAIAH 036|007` But if you say to me, We trust in the Lord our God: is it not he, whose high places and whose altars Hezekiah hath taken away, and said to Judah and to Jerusalem, Ye shall worship before this altar?

23~ISAIAH 036|008` Now therefore give pledges, I pray you, to my master the king of Assyria, and I will give you two thousand horses, if you be able on thy part to set riders upon them.

23~ISAIAH 036|009` How then wilt you turn away the face of one captain of the least of my master's servants, and put thy trust on Egypt for chariots and for horsemen?

23~ISAIAH 036|010` And am I now come up without the Lord against this land to destroy it? the Lord said to me, Go up against this land, and destroy it.

23~ISAIAH 036|011` Then said Eliakim and Shebna and Joah to Rabshakeh, Speak, I pray you, to thy servants in the Syrian language; for we understand it: and speak not to us in the Jews' [0241] language, in the ears of the people that are on the wall.

23~ISAIAH 036|012` But Rabshakeh said, Hath my master sent me to thy master and to you to speak these words? hath he not sent me to the men that sit upon the wall, that they may eat their own dung, and drink their own piss with you?

23~ISAIAH 036|013` Then Rabshakeh stood, and cried with a loud voice in the Jews'[0559] language, and said, Hear you the words of the great king, the king of Assyria.

23~ISAIAH 036|014` Thus saith the king, Let not Hezekiah deceive you: for he shall not be able to deliver you.

23~ISAIAH 036|015` Neither let Hezekiah 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.

23~ISAIAH 036|016` Hearken not to Hezekiah: for thus saith the king of Assyria, Make an agreement with me by a present, and come out to me: and eat you every one of his vine, and every one of his fig tree, and drink you every one the waters of his own cistern;

23~ISAIAH 036|017` 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.

23~ISAIAH 036|018` Beware lest Hezekiah 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?

23~ISAIAH 036|019` Where are the gods of Hamath and Arphad? where are the gods of Sepharvaim? and have they delivered Samaria out of my hand?

23~ISAIAH 036|020` 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?

23~ISAIAH 036|021` But they held their peace, and answered him not a word: for the king's commandment was, saying, Answer him not.

23~ISAIAH 036|022` Then came Eliakim, the son of Hilkiah, that was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and Joah, the son of Asaph, the recorder, to Hezekiah with their clothes rent, and told him the words of Rabshakeh.

23~ISAIAH 037|001` And it came to pass, when king Hezekiah heard it, that he rent his clothes, and covered himself with sackcloth, and went into the house of the Lord.

23~ISAIAH 037|002` And he sent Eliakim, who was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and the elders of the priests covered with sackcloth, to Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz.

23~ISAIAH 037|003` And they said to him, Thus saith Hezekiah, 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.

23~ISAIAH 037|004` It may be the Lord thy God will hear the words of Rabshakeh, whom the king of Assyria his master hath sent to reproach the living God, and will reprove the words which the Lord thy God hath heard: wherefore lift up thy prayer for the remnant that is left.

23~ISAIAH 037|005` So the servants of king Hezekiah came to Isaiah.

23~ISAIAH 037|006` And Isaiah said to them, Thus shall you say to your master, Thus saith the Lord, Be not afraid of the words that you hast heard, where with the servants of the king of Assyria have blasphemed me.

23~ISAIAH 037|007` Behold, I will send a blast upon him, and he shall hear a rumour, and return to his own land; and I will cause him to fall by the sword in his own land.

23~ISAIAH 037|008` So Rabshakeh returned, and found the king of Assyria warring against Libnah: for he had heard that he was departed from Lachish.

23~ISAIAH 037|009` And he heard say concerning Tirhakah king of Ethiopia, He is come forth to make war with you. And when he heard it, he sent messengers to Hezekiah, saying,

23~ISAIAH 037|010` Thus shall you speak to Hezekiah king of Judah, saying, Let not thy God, in whom you trustest, deceive you, saying, Jerusalem shall not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria.

23~ISAIAH 037|011` Behold, you hast heard what the kings of Assyria have done to all lands by destroying them utterly; and shalt you be delivered?

23~ISAIAH 037|012` Have the gods of the nations delivered them which my fathers have destroyed, as Gozan, and Haran, and Rezeph, and the children of Eden which were in Telassar?

23~ISAIAH 037|013` Where is the king of Hamath, and the king of Arphad, and the king of the city of Sepharvaim, Hena, and Ivah?

23~ISAIAH 037|014` And Hezekiah received the letter from the hand of the messengers, and read it: and Hezekiah went up to the house of the Lord, and spread it before the Lord.

23~ISAIAH 037|015` And Hezekiah prayed to the Lord, saying,

23~ISAIAH 037|016` O Lord of hosts, God of Israel, that dwellest between the Cherubims, you art the God, even you alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth: you hast made heaven and earth.

23~ISAIAH 037|017` Incline yours ear, O Lord, and hear; open yours eyes, O Lord, and see: and hear all the words of Sennacherib, which hath sent to reproach the living God.

23~ISAIAH 037|018` Of a truth, Lord, the kings of Assyria have laid waste all the nations, and their countries,

23~ISAIAH 037|019` And have cast their gods into the fire: for they were no gods, but the work of men's hands, wood and stone: therefore they have destroyed them.

23~ISAIAH 037|020` Now therefore, O Lord our God, save us from his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that you art the Lord, even you only.

23~ISAIAH 037|021` Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent to Hezekiah, saying, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Whereas you hast prayed to me against Sennacherib king of Assyria:

23~ISAIAH 037|022` This is the word which the Lord hath spoken concerning him; The virgin, the daughter of Zion, hath despised you, and laughed you to scorn; the daughter of Jerusalem hath shaken her head at you.

23~ISAIAH 037|023` Whom hast you reproached and blasphemed? and against whom hast you exalted thy voice, and lifted up yours eyes on high? even against the Holy One of Israel.

23~ISAIAH 037|024` By thy servants hast you reproached the Lord, and hast said, By the multitude of my chariots am I come up to the height of the mountains, to the sides of Lebanon; and I will cut down the tall cedars thereof, and the choice fir trees thereof: and I will enter into the height of hi

23~ISAIAH 037|025` I have digged, and drunk water; and with the sole of my feet have I dried up all the rivers of the besieged places.

23~ISAIAH 037|026` Have you not heard long ago, how I have done it; and of ancient times, that I have formed it? now have I brought it to pass, that you shouldest be to lay waste defenced cities into ruinous heaps.

23~ISAIAH 037|027` Therefore their inhabitants were of small power, they were dismayed and confounded: they were as the grass of the field, and as the green herb, as the grass on the housetops, and as corn blasted before it be grown up.

23~ISAIAH 037|028` But I know thy abode, and thy going out, and thy coming in, and thy rage against me.

23~ISAIAH 037|029` Because thy rage against me, and thy tumult, is come up into mine ears, therefore will I put my hook in thy nose, and my bridle in thy lips, and I will turn you back by the way by which you came.

23~ISAIAH 037|030` And this shall be a sign to you, Ye shall eat this year such as groweth of itself; and the second year that which springs of the same: and in the third year sow you, and reap, and plant vineyards, and eat the fruit thereof.

23~ISAIAH 037|031` And the remnant that is escaped of the house of Judah shall again take root downward, and bear fruit upward:

23~ISAIAH 037|032` For out of Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant, and they that escape out of mount Zion: the zeal of the Lord of hosts shall do this.

23~ISAIAH 037|033` Therefore thus saith the Lord concerning the king of Assyria, He shall not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow there, nor come before it with shields, nor cast a bank against it.

23~ISAIAH 037|034` By the way that he came, by the same shall he return, and shall not come into this city, saith the Lord.

23~ISAIAH 037|035` For I will defend this city to save it for mine own sake, and for my servant David's sake.

23~ISAIAH 037|036` Then the angel of the Lord went forth, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians a hundred and fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.

23~ISAIAH 037|037` So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed, and went and returned, and lived at Nineveh.

23~ISAIAH 037|038` And it came to pass, as he was worshipping in the house of Nisroch his god, that Adrammelech and Sharezer his sons smote him with the sword; and they escaped into the land of Armenia: and Esarhaddon his son reigned in his stead.

23~ISAIAH 038|001` In those days was Hezekiah sick to death. And Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz came to him, and said to him, Thus saith the Lord, Set yours house in order: for you shalt die, and not live.

23~ISAIAH 038|002` Then Hezekiah turned his face toward the wall, and prayed to the Lord,

23~ISAIAH 038|003` And said, Remember now, O Lord, I beseech you, how I have walked before you in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore.

23~ISAIAH 038|004` Then came the word of the Lord to Isaiah, saying,

23~ISAIAH 038|005` Go, and say to Hezekiah, Thus saith the Lord, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will add to thy days fifteen years.

23~ISAIAH 038|006` And I will deliver you and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria: and I will defend this city.

23~ISAIAH 038|007` And this shall be a sign to you from the Lord, that the Lord will do this thing that he hath spoken;

23~ISAIAH 038|008` 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.

23~ISAIAH 038|009` The writing of Hezekiah king of Judah, when he had been sick, and was recovered of his sickness:

23~ISAIAH 038|010` I said in the cutting off of my days, I shall go to the gates of the grave: I am deprived of the residue of my years.

23~ISAIAH 038|011` I said, I shall not see the Lord, even the Lord, in the land of the living: I shall behold man no more with the inhabitants of the world.

23~ISAIAH 038|012` Mine age is departed, and is removed from me as a shepherd's tent: I have cut off like a Weaver my life: he will cut me off with pining sickness: from day even to night wilt you make an end of me.

23~ISAIAH 038|013` I reckoned till morning, that, as a lion, so will he break all my bones: from day even to night wilt you make an end of me.

23~ISAIAH 038|014` Like a crane or a swallow, so did I chatter: I did mourn as a dove: mine eyes fail with looking upward: O Lord, I am oppressed; undertake for me.

23~ISAIAH 038|015` What shall I say? he hath both spoken to me, and himself hath done it: I shall go softly all my years in the bitterness of my soul.

23~ISAIAH 038|016` O Lord, by these things men live, and in all these things is the life of my spirit: so wilt you recover me, and make me to live.

23~ISAIAH 038|017` Behold, for peace I had great bitterness: but you hast in love to my soul delivered it from the pit of corruption: for you hast cast all my sins behind thy back.

23~ISAIAH 038|018` For the grave cannot praise you, death can not celebrate you: they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth.

23~ISAIAH 038|019` The living, the living, he shall praise you, as I do this day: the father to the children shall make known thy truth.

23~ISAIAH 038|020` The Lord was ready to save me: therefore we will sing my songs to the stringed instruments all the days of our life in the house of the Lord.

23~ISAIAH 038|021` For Isaiah had said, Let them take a lump of figs, and lay it for a plaister upon the boil, and he shall recover.

23~ISAIAH 038|022` Hezekiah also had said, What is the sign that I shall go up to the house of the Lord?

23~ISAIAH 039|001` At that time Merodachbaladan, the son of Baladan, king of Babylon, sent letters and a present to Hezekiah: for he had heard that he had been sick, and was recovered.

23~ISAIAH 039|002` And Hezekiah 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 armor, and all that was found in his treasures: there was nothing in his house, nor in all his dominion, that Hezekiah shewed them not.

23~ISAIAH 039|003` Then came Isaiah the prophet to king Hezekiah, and said to him, What said these men? and from where came they to you? And Hezekiah said, They are come from a far country to me, even from Babylon.

23~ISAIAH 039|004` Then said he, What have they seen in yours house? And Hezekiah answered, All that is in mine house have they seen: there is nothing among my treasures that I have not shewed them.

23~ISAIAH 039|005` Then said Isaiah to Hezekiah, Hear the word of the Lord of hosts:

23~ISAIAH 039|006` Behold, the days come, that all that is in yours house, and that which thy fathers have laid up in store until this day, shall be carried to Babylon: nothing shall be left, saith the Lord.

23~ISAIAH 039|007` And of thy sons that shall issue from you, which you shalt beget, shall they take away; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon.

23~ISAIAH 039|008` Then said Hezekiah to Isaiah, Good is the word of the Lord which you hast spoken. He said moreover, For there shall be peace and truth in my days.

23~ISAIAH 040|001` Comfort you, comfort you my people, saith your God.

23~ISAIAH 040|002` Speak you comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry to her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the Lord's hand double for all her sins.

23~ISAIAH 040|003` The voice of him that cries in the wilderness, Prepare you the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.

23~ISAIAH 040|004` Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:

23~ISAIAH 040|005` And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.

23~ISAIAH 040|006` The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field:

23~ISAIAH 040|007` The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: because the spirit of the Lord blows upon it: surely the people is grass.

23~ISAIAH 040|008` The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.

23~ISAIAH 040|009` O Zion, that bringest good tidings, get you up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say to the cities of Judah, Behold your God!

23~ISAIAH 040|010` Behold, the Lord God will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.

23~ISAIAH 040|011` He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.

23~ISAIAH 040|012` Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?

23~ISAIAH 040|013` Who hath directed the spirit of the Lord, or being his counseller hath taught him?

23~ISAIAH 040|014` With whom took he counsel, and who instructed him, and taught him in the path of judgment, and taught him knowledge, and shewed to him the way of understanding?

23~ISAIAH 040|015` Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he takes up the isles as a very little thing.

23~ISAIAH 040|016` And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient for a burnt offering.

23~ISAIAH 040|017` All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity.

23~ISAIAH 040|018` To whom then will you liken God? or what likeness will you compare to him?

23~ISAIAH 040|019` The workman melteth a graven image, and the goldsmith spreads it over with gold, and casts silver chains.

23~ISAIAH 040|020` He that is so impoverished that he hath no oblation choose a tree that will not rot; he seeks to him a cunning workman to prepare a graven image, that shall not be moved.

23~ISAIAH 040|021` Have you not known? have you not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have you not understood from the foundations of the earth?

23~ISAIAH 040|022` It is he that sits upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretches out the heavens as a curtain, and spreads them out as a tent to dwell in:

23~ISAIAH 040|023` That brings the princes to nothing; he maketh the judges of the earth as vanity.

23~ISAIAH 040|024` You, they shall not be planted; yea, they shall not be sown: yea, their stock shall not take root in the earth: and he shall also blow upon them, and they shall wither, and the whirlwind shall take them away as stubble.

23~ISAIAH 040|025` To whom then will you liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One.

23~ISAIAH 040|026` Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that brings out their host by number: he call them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.

23~ISAIAH 040|027` Why sayest you, O Jacob, and speaks, O Israel, My way is hid from the Lord, and my judgment is passed over from my God?

23~ISAIAH 040|028` Have you not known? hast you not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.

23~ISAIAH 040|029` He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.

23~ISAIAH 040|030` Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:

23~ISAIAH 040|031` But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

23~ISAIAH 041|001` 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.

23~ISAIAH 041|002` Who raised up the righteous man 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.

23~ISAIAH 041|003` He pursued them, and passed safely; even by the way that he had not gone with his feet.

23~ISAIAH 041|004` Who hath wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I the Lord, the first, and with the last; I am he.

23~ISAIAH 041|005` The isles saw it, and feared; the ends of the earth were afraid, drew near, and came.

23~ISAIAH 041|006` They helped every one his neighbour; and every one said to his brother, Be of good courage.

23~ISAIAH 041|007` So the carpenter encouraged the goldsmith, and he that smothers with the hammer him that smote the anvil, saying, It is ready for the sodering: and he fastened it with nails, that it should not be moved.

23~ISAIAH 041|008` But you, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend.

23~ISAIAH 041|009` You whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called you from the chief men thereof, and said to you, You art my servant; I have chosen you, and not cast you away.

23~ISAIAH 041|010` Fear you not; for I am with you: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen you; yea, I will help you; yea, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness.

23~ISAIAH 041|011` Behold, all they that were incensed against you shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with you shall perish.

23~ISAIAH 041|012` You shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with you: they that war against you shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought.

23~ISAIAH 041|013` For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying to you, Fear not; I will help you.

23~ISAIAH 041|014` Fear not, you worm Jacob, and you men of Israel; I will help you, saith the Lord, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.

23~ISAIAH 041|015` Behold, I will make you a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: you shalt thresh the mountains, and beat them small, and shalt make the hills as chaff.

23~ISAIAH 041|016` You shalt fan them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind shall scatter them: and you shalt rejoice in the Lord, and shalt glory in the Holy One of Israel.

23~ISAIAH 041|017` When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I the Lord will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them.

23~ISAIAH 041|018` I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.

23~ISAIAH 041|019` I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree, and the pine, and the box tree together:

23~ISAIAH 041|020` That they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the Lord hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it.

23~ISAIAH 041|021` Produce your cause, saith the Lord; bring forth your strong reasons, saith the King of Jacob.

23~ISAIAH 041|022` Let them bring them forth, and shew us what shall happen: let them shew the former things, what they be, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare us things for to come.

23~ISAIAH 041|023` Shew the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that you are gods: yea, do good, or do evil, that we may be dismayed, and behold it together.

23~ISAIAH 041|024` Behold, you are of nothing, and your work of nought: an abomination is he that choose you.

23~ISAIAH 041|025` I have raised up one from the north, and he shall come: from the rising of the sun shall he call upon my name: and he shall come upon princes as upon morter, and as the potter treadeth clay.

23~ISAIAH 041|026` Who hath declared from the beginning, that we may know? and before, that we may say, He is righteous? yea, there is none that sheweth, yea, there is none that declares, yea, there is none that heareth your words.

23~ISAIAH 041|027` The first shall say to Zion, Behold, behold them: and I will give to Jerusalem one that brings good tidings.

23~ISAIAH 041|028` For I beheld, and there was no man; even among them, and there was no counseller, that, when I asked of them, could answer a word.

23~ISAIAH 041|029` Behold, they are all vanity; their works are nothing: their molten images are wind and confusion.

23~ISAIAH 042|001` Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delights; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.

23~ISAIAH 042|002` He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.

23~ISAIAH 042|003` A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment to truth.

23~ISAIAH 042|004` He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.

23~ISAIAH 042|005` Thus saith God the Lord, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which comes out of it; he that giveth breath to the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:

23~ISAIAH 042|006` I the Lord have called you in righteousness, and will hold yours hand, and will keep you, and give you for a covenient of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;

23~ISAIAH 042|007` To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.

23~ISAIAH 042|008` I am the Lord: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.

23~ISAIAH 042|009` Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.

23~ISAIAH 042|010` Sing to the Lord a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth, you that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof.

23~ISAIAH 042|011` Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift up their voice, the villages that Kedar doth inhabit: let the inhabitants of the rock sing, let them shout from the top of the mountains.

23~ISAIAH 042|012` Let them give glory to the Lord, and declare his praise in the islands.

23~ISAIAH 042|013` The Lord shall go forth as a mighty man, he shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: he shall cry, yea, roar; he shall prevail against his enemies.

23~ISAIAH 042|014` I have long time holden my peace; I have been still, and refrained myself: now will I cry like a travailing woman; I will destroy and devour at once.

23~ISAIAH 042|015` I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands, and I will dry up the pools.

23~ISAIAH 042|016` And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do to them, and not forsake them.

23~ISAIAH 042|017` They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images, that say to the molten images, Ye are our gods.

23~ISAIAH 042|018` Hear, you deaf; and look, you blind, that you may see.

23~ISAIAH 042|019` Who is blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my messenger that I sent? who is blind as he that is perfect, and blind as the Lord's servant?

23~ISAIAH 042|020` Seeing many things, but you observest not; opening the ears, but he heareth not.

23~ISAIAH 042|021` The Lord is well pleased for his righteousness' sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honourable.

23~ISAIAH 042|022` But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivers; for a spoil, and none saith, Restore.

23~ISAIAH 042|023` Who among you will give ear to this? who will hearken and hear for the time to come?

23~ISAIAH 042|024` Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? did not the Lord, he against whom we have sinned? for they would not walk in his ways, neither were they obedient to his law.

23~ISAIAH 042|025` Therefore he hath poured upon him the fury of his anger, and the strength of battle: and it hath set him on fire round about, yet he knew not; and it burned him, yet he laid it not to heart.

23~ISAIAH 043|001` But now thus saith the Lord that created you, O Jacob, and he that formed you, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed you, I have called you by thy name; you art mine.

23~ISAIAH 043|002` When you passest through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you: when you walkest through the fire, you shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon you.

23~ISAIAH 043|003` For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for you.

23~ISAIAH 043|004` Since you wast precious in my sight, you hast been honourable, and I have loved you: therefore will I give men for you, and people for thy life.

23~ISAIAH 043|005` Fear not: for I am with you: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather you from the west;

23~ISAIAH 043|006` 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 ends of the earth;

23~ISAIAH 043|007` Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.

23~ISAIAH 043|008` Bring forth the blind people that have eyes, and the deaf that have ears.

23~ISAIAH 043|009` Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the people be assembled: who among them can declare this, and shew us former things? let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified: or let them hear, and say, It is truth.

23~ISAIAH 043|010` Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that you may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.

23~ISAIAH 043|011` I, even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no saviour.

23~ISAIAH 043|012` I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore you are my witnesses, saith the Lord, that I am God.

23~ISAIAH 043|013` You, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it?

23~ISAIAH 043|014` Thus saith the Lord, your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; For your sake I have sent to Babylon, and have brought down all their nobles, and the Chaldeans, whose cry is in the ships.

23~ISAIAH 043|015` I am the Lord, your Holy One, the creator of Israel, your King.

23~ISAIAH 043|016` Thus saith the Lord, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters;

23~ISAIAH 043|017` Which brings forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power; they shall lie down together, they shall not rise: they are extinct, they are quenched as tow.

23~ISAIAH 043|018` Remember you not the former things, neither consider the things of old.

23~ISAIAH 043|019` Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

23~ISAIAH 043|020` The beast of the field shall honour me, the dragons and the owls: because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen.

23~ISAIAH 043|021` This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.

23~ISAIAH 043|022` But you hast not called upon me, O Jacob; but you hast been weary of me, O Israel.

23~ISAIAH 043|023` You hast not brought me the small cattle of thy burnt offerings; neither hast you honoured me with thy sacrifices. I have not caused you to serve with an offering, nor wearied you with incense.

23~ISAIAH 043|024` You hast bought me no sweet cane with money, neither hast you filled me with the fat of thy sacrifices: but you hast made me to serve with thy sins, you hast wearied me with yours iniquities.

23~ISAIAH 043|025` I, even I, am he that blots out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.

23~ISAIAH 043|026` Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare you, that you mayest be justified.

23~ISAIAH 043|027` Your first father hath sinned, and thy teachers have transgressed against me.

23~ISAIAH 043|028` Therefore I have profaned the princes of the sanctuary, and have given Jacob to the curse, and Israel to reproaches.

23~ISAIAH 044|001` Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant; and Israel, whom I have chosen:

23~ISAIAH 044|002` Thus saith the Lord that made you, and formed you from the womb, which will help you; Fear not, O Jacob, my servant; and you, Jesurun, whom I have chosen.

23~ISAIAH 044|003` 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 yours offspring:

23~ISAIAH 044|004` And they shall spring up as among the grass, as willows by the water courses.

23~ISAIAH 044|005` One shall say, I am the Lord's; and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob; and another shall subscribe with his hand to the Lord, and surname himself by the name of Israel.

23~ISAIAH 044|006` 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 God.

23~ISAIAH 044|007` 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 to them.

23~ISAIAH 044|008` Fear you not, neither be afraid: have not I told you from that time, and have declared it? you are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.

23~ISAIAH 044|009` They that make a graven image are all of them vanity; and their delectable things shall not profit; and they are their own witnesses; they see not, nor know; that they may be ashamed.

23~ISAIAH 044|010` Who hath formed a god, or molten a graven image that is profitable for nothing?

23~ISAIAH 044|011` 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.

23~ISAIAH 044|012` 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.

23~ISAIAH 044|013` The carpenter stretches out his rule; he marketh it out with a line; he fitteth it with planes, and he marketh it out with the compass, and maketh it after the figure of a man, according to the beauty of a man; that it may remain in the house.

23~ISAIAH 044|014` He heweth him down cedars, and takes the cypress and the oak, which he stretches for himself among the trees of the forest: he planteth an ash, and the rain doth nourish it.

23~ISAIAH 044|015` Then shall it be for a man to burn: for he will take thereof, and warm himself; yea, he kindleth it, and bake bread; yea, he maketh a god, and worshippeth it; he maketh it a graven image, and falleth down thereto.

23~ISAIAH 044|016` He burn 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:

23~ISAIAH 044|017` And the residue thereof he maketh a god, even his graven image: he falleth down to it, and worshippeth it, and prayeth to it, and saith, Deliver me; for you art my god.

23~ISAIAH 044|018` They have not known nor understood: for he hath shut their eyes, that they cannot see; and their hearts, that they cannot understand.

23~ISAIAH 044|019` And none considers 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 the residue thereof an abomination? shall I

23~ISAIAH 044|020` 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?

23~ISAIAH 044|021` Remember these, O Jacob and Israel; for you art my servant: I have formed you; you art my servant: O Israel, you shalt not be forgotten of me.

23~ISAIAH 044|022` I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return to me; for I have redeemed you.

23~ISAIAH 044|023` Sing, O you heavens; for the Lord hath done it: shout, you lower parts of the earth: break forth into singing, you mountains, O forest, and every tree therein: for the Lord hath redeemed Jacob, and glorified himself in Israel.

23~ISAIAH 044|024` Thus saith the Lord, thy redeemer, and he that formed you from the womb, I am the Lord that maketh all things; that stretches forth the heavens alone; that spreads abroad the earth by myself;

23~ISAIAH 044|025` That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish;

23~ISAIAH 044|026` That confirms the word of his servant, and performeth the counsel of his messengers; that saith to Jerusalem, You shalt be inhabited; and to the cities of Judah, Ye shall be built, and I will raise up the decayed places thereof:

23~ISAIAH 044|027` That saith to the deep, Be dry, and I will dry up thy rivers:

23~ISAIAH 044|028` That saith of Cyrus, He is my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasure: even saying to Jerusalem, You shalt be built; and to the temple, Your foundation shall be laid.

23~ISAIAH 045|001` 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;

23~ISAIAH 045|002` I will go before you, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:

23~ISAIAH 045|003` And I will give you the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that you mayest know that I, the Lord, which call you by thy name, am the God of Israel.

23~ISAIAH 045|004` For Jacob my servant's sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called you by thy name: I have surnamed you, though you hast not known me.

23~ISAIAH 045|005` I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded you, though you hast not known me:

23~ISAIAH 045|006` That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else.

23~ISAIAH 045|007` I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.

23~ISAIAH 045|008` Drop down, you heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the Lord have created it.

23~ISAIAH 045|009` Woe to him that strives with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest you? or thy work, He hath no hands?

23~ISAIAH 045|010` Woe to him that saith to his father, What begettest you? or to the woman, What hast you brought forth?

23~ISAIAH 045|011` Thus saith the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command you me.

23~ISAIAH 045|012` I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded.

23~ISAIAH 045|013` I have raised him up in righteousness, and I will direct all his ways: he shall build my city, and he shall let go my captives, not for price nor reward, saith the Lord of hosts.

23~ISAIAH 045|014` Thus saith the Lord, The labour of Egypt, and merchandise of Ethiopia and of the Sabeans, men of stature, shall come over to you, and they shall be yours: they shall come after you; in chains they shall come over, and they shall fall down to you, they shall make supplication to you, saying, Surely God is in you; and there is none else, there is no God.

23~ISAIAH 045|015` Verily you art a God that hidest thyself, O God of Israel, the Saviour.

23~ISAIAH 045|016` They shall be ashamed, and also confounded, all of them: they shall go to confusion together that are makers of idols.

23~ISAIAH 045|017` But Israel shall be saved in the Lord with an everlasting salvation: you shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end.

23~ISAIAH 045|018` For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the Lord; and there is none else.

23~ISAIAH 045|019` I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not to the seed of Jacob, Seek you me in vain: I the Lord speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.

23~ISAIAH 045|020` Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, you that are escaped of the nations: they have no knowledge that set up the wood of their graven image, and pray to a god that cannot save.

23~ISAIAH 045|021` Tell you, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the Lord? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.

23~ISAIAH 045|022` Look to me, and be you saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.

23~ISAIAH 045|023` I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, that to me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.

23~ISAIAH 045|024` Surely, shall one say, In the Lord have I righteousness and strength: even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed.

23~ISAIAH 045|025` In the Lord shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory.

23~ISAIAH 046|001` Bel bows down, Nebo stoopeth, their idols were upon the beasts, and upon the cattle: your carriages were heavy loaden; they are a burden to the weary beast.

23~ISAIAH 046|002` They stoop, they bow down together; they could not deliver the burden, but themselves are gone into captivity.

23~ISAIAH 046|003` Hearken to me, O house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel, which are borne by me from the belly, which are carried from the womb:

23~ISAIAH 046|004` And even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you.

23~ISAIAH 046|005` To whom will you liken me, and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be like?

23~ISAIAH 046|006` They lavish gold out of the bag, and weigh silver in the balance and hire a goldsmith; and he maketh it a god: they fall down, yea, they worship.

23~ISAIAH 046|007` They bear him upon the shoulder, they carry him, and set him in his place, and he stands; from his place shall he not remove: yea, one shall cry to him, yet can he not answer, nor save him out of his trouble.

23~ISAIAH 046|008` Remember this, and shew yourselves men: bring it again to mind, O you transgressors.

23~ISAIAH 046|009` Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,

23~ISAIAH 046|010` Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

23~ISAIAH 046|011` Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executes my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.

23~ISAIAH 046|012` Hearken to me, you stouthearted, that are far from righteousness:

23~ISAIAH 046|013` I bring near my righteousness; it shall not be far off, and my salvation shall not tarry: and I will place salvation in Zion for Israel my glory.

23~ISAIAH 047|001` Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground: there is no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for you shalt no more be called tender and delicate.

23~ISAIAH 047|002` Take the millstones, and grind meal: uncover thy locks, make bare the leg, uncover the thigh, pass over the rivers.

23~ISAIAH 047|003` Your nakedness shall be uncovered, yea, thy shame shall be seen: I will take vengeance, and I will not meet you as a man.

23~ISAIAH 047|004` As for our redeemer, the Lord of hosts is his name, the Holy One of Israel.

23~ISAIAH 047|005` Sit you silent, and get you into darkness, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for you shalt no more be called, The lady of kingdoms.

23~ISAIAH 047|006` I was wroth with my people, I have polluted mine inheritance, and given them into yours hand: you didst shew them no mercy; upon the ancient hast you very heavily laid thy yoke.

23~ISAIAH 047|007` And you saidst, I shall be a lady for ever: so that you didst not lay these things to thy heart, neither didst remember the latter end of it.

23~ISAIAH 047|008` Therefore hear now this, you that art given to pleasures, that dwellest carelessly, that sayest in yours heart, I am, and none else beside me; I shall not sit as a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children:

23~ISAIAH 047|009` But these two things shall come to you in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood: they shall come upon you in their perfection for the multitude of thy sorceries, and for the great abundance of yours enchantments.

23~ISAIAH 047|010` For you hast trusted in thy wickedness: you hast said, None sees me. Your wisdom and thy knowledge, it hath perverted you; and you hast said in yours heart, I am, and none else beside me.

23~ISAIAH 047|011` Therefore shall evil come upon you; you shalt not know from where it riseth: and mischief shall fall upon you; you shalt not be able to put it off: and desolation shall come upon you suddenly, which you shalt not know.

23~ISAIAH 047|012` Stand now with yours enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries, wherein you hast laboured from thy youth; if so be you shalt be able to profit, if so be you mayest prevail.

23~ISAIAH 047|013` You art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save you from these things that shall come upon you.

23~ISAIAH 047|014` Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it.

23~ISAIAH 047|015` Thus shall they be to you with whom you hast laboured, even thy merchants, from thy youth: they shall wander every one to his quarter; none shall save you.

23~ISAIAH 048|001` Hear you 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.

23~ISAIAH 048|002` For they call themselves of the holy city, and stay themselves upon the God of Israel; the Lord of hosts is his name.

23~ISAIAH 048|003` I have declared the former things from the beginning; and they went forth out of my mouth, and I shewed them; I did them suddenly, and they came to pass.

23~ISAIAH 048|004` Because I knew that you art obstinate, and thy neck is an iron sinew, and thy brow brass;

23~ISAIAH 048|005` I have even from the beginning declared it to you; before it came to pass I shewed it you: lest you shouldest say, Mine idol hath done them, and my graven image, and my molten image, hath commanded them.

23~ISAIAH 048|006` You hast heard, see all this; and will not you declare it? I have shewed you new things from this time, even hidden things, and you didst not know them.

23~ISAIAH 048|007` They are created now, and not from the beginning; even before the day when you heardest them not; lest you shouldest say, Behold, I knew them.

23~ISAIAH 048|008` You, you heardest not; yea, you knewest not; yea, from that time that yours ear was not opened: for I knew that you wouldest deal very treacherously, and wast called a transgressor from the womb.

23~ISAIAH 048|009` For my name's sake will I defer mine anger, and for my praise will I refrain for you, that I cut you not off.

23~ISAIAH 048|010` Behold, I have refined you, but not with silver; I have chosen you in the furnace of affliction.

23~ISAIAH 048|011` For mine own sake, even for mine own sake, will I do it: for how should my name be polluted? and I will not give my glory to another.

23~ISAIAH 048|012` Hearken to me, O Jacob and Israel, my called; I am he; I am the first, I also am the last.

23~ISAIAH 048|013` Mine hand also hath laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand hath spanned the heavens: when I call to them, they stand up together.

23~ISAIAH 048|014` All you, assemble yourselves, and hear; which among them hath declared these things? the Lord hath loved him: he will do his pleasure on Babylon, and his arm shall be on the Chaldeans.

23~ISAIAH 048|015` I, even I, have spoken; yea, I have called him: I have brought him, and he shall make his way prosperous.

23~ISAIAH 048|016` Come you near to me, hear you this; I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it was, there am I: and now the Lord God, and his spirit, hath sent me.

23~ISAIAH 048|017` Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the Lord thy God which teaches you to profit, which leadeth you by the way that you shouldest go.

23~ISAIAH 048|018` O that you hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea:

23~ISAIAH 048|019` Your seed also had been as the sand, and the offspring of thy bowels like the gravel thereof; his name should not have been cut off nor destroyed from before me.

23~ISAIAH 048|020` Go you forth of Babylon, flee you from the Chaldeans, with a voice of singing declare you, tell this, utter it even to the end of the earth; say you, The Lord hath redeemed his servant Jacob.

23~ISAIAH 048|021` And they thirsted not when he led them through the deserts: he caused the waters to flow out of the rock for them: he clave the rock also, and the waters gushed out.

23~ISAIAH 048|022` There is no peace, saith the Lord, to the wicked.

23~ISAIAH 049|001` Listen, O isles, to me; and hearken, you people, from far; The Lord hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name.

23~ISAIAH 049|002` 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;

23~ISAIAH 049|003` And said to me, You art my servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.

23~ISAIAH 049|004` 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.

23~ISAIAH 049|005` And now, saith the Lord that formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the Lord, and my God shall be my strength.

23~ISAIAH 049|006` And he said, It is a light thing that you shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give you for a light to the Gentiles, that you mayest be my salvation to the end of the earth.

23~ISAIAH 049|007` Thus saith the Lord, the Redeemer of Israel, and his Holy One, to him whom man despises, to him whom the nation hate, to a servant of rulers, Kings shall see and arise, princes also shall worship, because of the Lord that is faithful, and the Holy One of Israel, and he shall choose you.

23~ISAIAH 049|008` Thus saith the Lord, In an acceptable time have I heard you, and in a day of salvation have I helped you: and I will preserve you, and give you for a covenient of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages;

23~ISAIAH 049|009` That you mayest say to the prisoners, Go forth; to them that are in darkness, shew yourselves. They shall feed in the ways, and their pastures shall be in all high places.

23~ISAIAH 049|010` They shall not hunger nor thirst; neither shall the heat nor sun smite them: for he that hath mercy on them shall lead them, even by the springs of water shall he guide them.

23~ISAIAH 049|011` And I will make all my mountains a way, and my highways shall be exalted.

23~ISAIAH 049|012` Behold, these shall come from far: and, lo, these from the north and from the west; and these from the land of Sinim.

23~ISAIAH 049|013` Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains: for the Lord hath comforted his people, and will have mercy upon his afflicted.

23~ISAIAH 049|014` But Zion said, The Lord hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me.

23~ISAIAH 049|015` Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget you.

23~ISAIAH 049|016` Behold, I have graven you upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me.

23~ISAIAH 049|017` Your children shall make haste; thy destroyers and they that made you waste shall go forth of you.

23~ISAIAH 049|018` Lift up yours eyes round about, and behold: all these gather themselves together, and come to you. As I live, saith the Lord, you shalt surely clothe you with them all, as with an ornament, and bind them on you, as a bride doeth.

23~ISAIAH 049|019` For thy waste and thy desolate places, and the land of thy destruction, shall even now be too narrow by reason of the inhabitants, and they that swallowed you up shall be far away.

23~ISAIAH 049|020` The children which you shalt have, after you hast lost the other, shall say again in yours ears, The place is too strait for me: give place to me that I may dwell.

23~ISAIAH 049|021` Then shalt you say in yours heart, Who hath begotten me these, seeing I have lost my children, and am desolate, a captive, and removing to and fro? and who hath brought up these? behold, I was left alone; these, where had they been?

23~ISAIAH 049|022` Thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I will lift up mine hand to the Gentiles, and set up my standard to the people: and they shall bring thy sons in their arms, and thy daughters shall be carried upon their shoulders.

23~ISAIAH 049|023` And kings shall be thy nursing fathers, and their queens thy nursing mothers: they shall bow down to you with their face toward the earth, and lick up the dust of thy feet; and you shalt know that I am the Lord: for they shall not be ashamed that wait for me.

23~ISAIAH 049|024` Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captive delivered?

23~ISAIAH 049|025` But thus saith the Lord, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with you, and I will save thy children.

23~ISAIAH 049|026` And I will feed them that oppress you with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the Lord am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.

23~ISAIAH 050|001` Thus saith the Lord, Where is the bill of your mother's divorcement, whom I have put away? or which of my creditors is it to whom I have sold you? behold, for your iniquities have you sold yourselves, and for your transgressions is your mother put away.

23~ISAIAH 050|002` 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 stinks, because there is no water, and dieth for thirst.

23~ISAIAH 050|003` I clothe the heavens with blackness, and I make sackcloth their covering.

23~ISAIAH 050|004` The Lord God hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned.

23~ISAIAH 050|005` The Lord God hath opened mine ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away back.

23~ISAIAH 050|006` I gave my back to the attackers, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting.

23~ISAIAH 050|007` For the Lord God will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed.

23~ISAIAH 050|008` He is near that justifieth me; who will contend with me? let us stand together: who is mine adversary? let him come near to me.

23~ISAIAH 050|009` Behold, the Lord God will help me; who is he that shall condemn me? lo, they all shall wax old as a garment; the moth shall eat them up.

23~ISAIAH 050|010` 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.

23~ISAIAH 050|011` Behold, all you that kindle a fire, that compass yourselves about with sparks: walk in the light of your fire, and in the sparks that you have kindled. This shall you have of mine hand; you shall lie down in sorrow.

23~ISAIAH 051|001` Hearken to me, you that follow after righteousness, you that seek the Lord: look to the rock where you are hewn, and to the hole of the pit where you are digged.

23~ISAIAH 051|002` Look to Abraham your father, and to Sarah that bare you: for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him.

23~ISAIAH 051|003` For the Lord shall comfort Zion: he will comfort all her waste places; and he will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the Lord; joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody.

23~ISAIAH 051|004` Hearken to me, my people; and give ear to me, O my nation: for a law shall proceed from me, and I will make my judgment to rest for a light of the people.

23~ISAIAH 051|005` My righteousness is near; my salvation is gone forth, and mine arms shall judge the people; the isles shall wait upon me, and on mine arm shall they trust.

23~ISAIAH 051|006` Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.

23~ISAIAH 051|007` Hearken to me, you that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law; fear you not the reproach of men, neither be you afraid of their revilings.

23~ISAIAH 051|008` For the moth shall eat them up like a garment, and the worm shall eat them like wool: but my righteousness shall be for ever, and my salvation from generation to generation.

23~ISAIAH 051|009` Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the Lord; awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old. Art you not it that hath cut Rahab, and wounded the dragon?

23~ISAIAH 051|010` Art you not it which hath dried the sea, the waters of the great deep; that hath made the depths of the sea a way for the ransomed to pass over?

23~ISAIAH 051|011` Therefore the redeemed of the Lord shall return, and come with singing to Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.

23~ISAIAH 051|012` I, even I, am he that comforts you: who art you, that you shouldest be afraid of a man that shall die, and of the son of man which shall be made as grass;

23~ISAIAH 051|013` And forgettest the Lord thy maker, that hath stretched forth the heavens, and laid the foundations of the earth; and hast feared continually every day because of the fury of the oppressor, as if he were ready to destroy? and where is the fury of the oppressor?

23~ISAIAH 051|014` The captive exile hasteneth that he may be loosed, and that he should not die in the pit, nor that his bread should fail.

23~ISAIAH 051|015` But I am the Lord thy God, that divided the sea, whose waves roared: The Lord of hosts is his name.

23~ISAIAH 051|016` And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered you in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say to Zion, You art my people.

23~ISAIAH 051|017` Awake, awake, stand up, O Jerusalem, which hast drunk at the hand of the Lord the cup of his fury; you hast drunken the dregs of the cup of trembling, and wrung them out.

23~ISAIAH 051|018` There is none to guide her among all the sons whom she hath brought forth; neither is there any that takes her by the hand of all the sons that she hath brought up.

23~ISAIAH 051|019` These two things are come to you; who shall be sorry for you? desolation, and destruction, and the famine, and the sword: by whom shall I comfort you?

23~ISAIAH 051|020` Your sons have fainted, they lie at the head of all the streets, as a wild bull in a net: they are full of the fury of the Lord, the rebuke of thy God.

23~ISAIAH 051|021` Therefore hear now this, you afflicted, and drunken, but not with wine:

23~ISAIAH 051|022` Thus saith thy Lord the Lord, and thy God that pleadeth the cause of his people, Behold, I have taken out of yours hand the cup of trembling, even the dregs of the cup of my fury; you shalt no more drink it again:

23~ISAIAH 051|023` But I will put it into the hand of them that afflict you; which have said to thy soul, Bow down, that we may go over: and you hast laid thy body as the ground, and as the street, to them that went over.

23~ISAIAH 052|001` 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 you the uncircumcised and the unclean.

23~ISAIAH 052|002` Shake thyself from the dust; arise, and sit down, O Jerusalem: loose thyself from the bands of thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion.

23~ISAIAH 052|003` For thus saith the Lord, Ye have sold yourselves for nought; and you shall be redeemed without money.

23~ISAIAH 052|004` For thus saith the Lord God, My people went down before into Egypt to sojourn there; and the Assyrian oppressed them without cause.

23~ISAIAH 052|005` Now therefore, what have I here, saith the Lord, that my people is taken away for nought? they that rule over them make them to howl, saith the Lord; and my name continually every day is blasphemed.

23~ISAIAH 052|006` Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall know in that day that I am he that doth speak: behold, it is I.

23~ISAIAH 052|007` How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that brings good tidings, that publisheth peace; that brings good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith to Zion, Your God reigneth!

23~ISAIAH 052|008` Your watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when the Lord shall bring again Zion.

23~ISAIAH 052|009` Break forth into joy, sing together, you waste places of Jerusalem: for the Lord hath comforted his people, he hath redeemed Jerusalem.

23~ISAIAH 052|010` The Lord hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.

23~ISAIAH 052|011` Depart you, depart you, go you out from there, touch no unclean thing; go you out of the midst of her; be you clean, that bear the vessels of the Lord.

23~ISAIAH 052|012` For you shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight: for the Lord will go before you; and God of Israel will be your rereward.

23~ISAIAH 052|013` Behold, my servant shall deal prudently, he shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high.

23~ISAIAH 052|014` As many were astonied at you; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men:

23~ISAIAH 052|015` So shall he sprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider.

23~ISAIAH 053|001` Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?

23~ISAIAH 053|002` 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.

23~ISAIAH 053|003` He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

23~ISAIAH 053|004` Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

23~ISAIAH 053|005` But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

23~ISAIAH 053|006` All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

23~ISAIAH 053|007` He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

23~ISAIAH 053|008` He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.

23~ISAIAH 053|009` And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.

23~ISAIAH 053|010` Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when you shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand.

23~ISAIAH 053|011` He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.

23~ISAIAH 053|012` Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul to death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

23~ISAIAH 054|001` Sing, O barren, you that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, you that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the Lord.

23~ISAIAH 054|002` Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of yours habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes;

23~ISAIAH 054|003` For you shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.

23~ISAIAH 054|004` Fear not; for you shalt not be ashamed: neither be you confounded; for you shalt not be put to shame: for you shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt not remember the reproach of thy widowhood any more.

23~ISAIAH 054|005` For thy Maker is yours husband; the Lord of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.

23~ISAIAH 054|006` For the Lord hath called you as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth, when you wast refused, saith thy God.

23~ISAIAH 054|007` For a small moment have I forsaken you; but with great mercies will I gather you.

23~ISAIAH 054|008` In a little wrath I hid my face from you for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on you, saith the Lord thy Redeemer.

23~ISAIAH 054|009` For this is as the waters of Noah to me: for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with you, nor rebuke you.

23~ISAIAH 054|010` For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from you, neither shall the covenient of my peace be removed, saith the Lord that hath mercy on you.

23~ISAIAH 054|011` O you afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will lay thy stones with fair colors, and lay thy foundations with sapphires.

23~ISAIAH 054|012` And I will make thy windows of agates, and thy gates of carbuncles, and all thy borders of pleasant stones.

23~ISAIAH 054|013` And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of thy children.

23~ISAIAH 054|014` In righteousness shalt you be established: you shalt be far from oppression; for you shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near you.

23~ISAIAH 054|015` Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against you shall fall for thy sake.

23~ISAIAH 054|016` Behold, I have created the smith that blows the coals in the fire, and that brings forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.

23~ISAIAH 054|017` No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.

23~ISAIAH 055|001` Ho, every one that thirst, come you to the waters, and he that hath no money; come you, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.

23~ISAIAH 055|002` Wherefore do you spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently to me, and eat you that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.

23~ISAIAH 055|003` Incline your ear, and come to me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenient with you, even the sure mercies of David.

23~ISAIAH 055|004` Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people.

23~ISAIAH 055|005` Behold, you shalt call a nation that you knowest not, and nations that knew not you shall run to you because of the Lord thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for he hath glorified you.

23~ISAIAH 055|006` Seek you the Lord while he may be found, call you upon him while he is near:

23~ISAIAH 055|007` Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return to the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

23~ISAIAH 055|008` For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

23~ISAIAH 055|009` For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

23~ISAIAH 055|010` For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not there, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the planter, and bread to the eater:

23~ISAIAH 055|011` So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return to me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

23~ISAIAH 055|012` For you shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

23~ISAIAH 055|013` Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.

23~ISAIAH 056|001` Thus saith the Lord, Keep you judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed.

23~ISAIAH 056|002` 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.

23~ISAIAH 056|003` Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to the Lord, speak, saying, The Lord hath utterly separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree.

23~ISAIAH 056|004` For thus saith the Lord to the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenient;

23~ISAIAH 056|005` Even to them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.

23~ISAIAH 056|006` Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the Lord, to serve him, and to love the name of the Lord, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and takes hold of my covenient;

23~ISAIAH 056|007` Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.

23~ISAIAH 056|008` The Lord God, which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered to him.

23~ISAIAH 056|009` All you beasts of the field, come to devour, yea, all you beasts in the forest.

23~ISAIAH 056|010` His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.

23~ISAIAH 056|011` You, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.

23~ISAIAH 056|012` Come you, say they, I will fetch wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and to morrow shall be as this day, and much more abundant.

23~ISAIAH 057|001` 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.

23~ISAIAH 057|002` He shall enter into peace: they shall rest in their beds, each one walking in his uprightness.

23~ISAIAH 057|003` But draw near hither, you sons of the sorceress, the seed of the adulterer and the whore.

23~ISAIAH 057|004` Against whom do you sport yourselves? against whom make you a wide mouth, and draw out the tongue? are you not children of transgression, a seed of falsehood.

23~ISAIAH 057|005` Enflaming yourselves with idols under every green tree, slaying the children in the valleys under the clifts of rocks?

23~ISAIAH 057|006` Among the smooth stones of the stream is thy portion; they, they are thy lot: even to them hast you poured a drink offering, you hast offered a meat offering. Should I receive comfort in these?

23~ISAIAH 057|007` Upon a lofty and high mountain hast you set thy bed: even there wentest you up to offer sacrifice.

23~ISAIAH 057|008` Behind the doors also and the posts hast you set up thy remembrance: for you hast discovered thyself to another than me, and art gone up; you hast enlarged thy bed, and made you a covenient with them; you lovedst their bed where you sawest it.

23~ISAIAH 057|009` And you wentest to the king with ointment, and didst increase thy perfumes, and didst send thy messengers far off, and didst debase thyself even to hell.

23~ISAIAH 057|010` You art wearied in the greatness of thy way; yet saidst you not, There is no hope: you hast found the life of yours hand; therefore you wast not grieved.

23~ISAIAH 057|011` And of whom hast you been afraid or feared, that you hast lied, and hast not remembered me, nor laid it to thy heart? have not I held my peace even of old, and you fearest me not?

23~ISAIAH 057|012` I will declare thy righteousness, and thy works; for they shall not profit you.

23~ISAIAH 057|013` When you criest, let thy companies deliver you; but the wind shall carry them all away; vanity shall take them: but he that putteth his trust in me shall possess the land, and shall inherit my holy mountain;

23~ISAIAH 057|014` And shall say, Cast you up, cast you up, prepare the way, take up the stumbling block out of the way of my people.

23~ISAIAH 057|015` For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

23~ISAIAH 057|016` For I will not contend for ever, neither will I be always wroth: for the spirit should fail before me, and the souls which I have made.

23~ISAIAH 057|017` For the iniquity of his covetousness was I wroth, and smote him: I hid me, and was wroth, and he went on frowardly in the way of his heart.

23~ISAIAH 057|018` I have seen his ways, and will heal him: I will lead him also, and restore comforts to him and to his mourners.

23~ISAIAH 057|019` I create the fruit of the lips; Peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near, saith the Lord; and I will heal him.

23~ISAIAH 057|020` But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt.

23~ISAIAH 057|021` There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.

23~ISAIAH 058|001` Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.

23~ISAIAH 058|002` Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God: they ask of me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to God.

23~ISAIAH 058|003` Wherefore have we fasted, say they, and you sees not? wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and you takes no knowledge? Behold, in the day of your fast you find pleasure, and exact all your labours.

23~ISAIAH 058|004` Behold, you fast for strife and debate, and to smite with the fist of wickedness: you shall not fast as you do this day, to make your voice to be heard on high.

23~ISAIAH 058|005` Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt you call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the Lord?

23~ISAIAH 058|006` Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke?

23~ISAIAH 058|007` Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that you bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when you sees the naked, that you cover him; and that you hide not thyself from yours own flesh?

23~ISAIAH 058|008` Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and yours health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before you; the glory of the Lord shall be thy rereward.

23~ISAIAH 058|009` Then shalt you call, and the Lord shall answer; you shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If you take away from the midst of you the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity;

23~ISAIAH 058|010` And if you draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noonday:

23~ISAIAH 058|011` And the Lord shall guide you continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and you shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.

23~ISAIAH 058|012` And they that shall be of you shall build the old waste places: you shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.

23~ISAIAH 058|013` If you turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the Lord, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing yours own ways, nor finding yours own pleasure, nor speaking yours own words:

23~ISAIAH 058|014` Then shalt you delight thyself in the Lord; and I will cause you to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed you with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.

23~ISAIAH 059|001` Behold, the Lord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:

23~ISAIAH 059|002` But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

23~ISAIAH 059|003` For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness.

23~ISAIAH 059|004` None call for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.

23~ISAIAH 059|005` They hatch cockatrice' eggs, and weave the spider's web: he that eateth of their eggs dieth, and that which is crushed breaks out into a viper.

23~ISAIAH 059|006` Their webs shall not become garments, neither shall they cover themselves with their works: their works are works of iniquity, and the act of violence is in their hands.

23~ISAIAH 059|007` Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths.

23~ISAIAH 059|008` The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace.

23~ISAIAH 059|009` Therefore is judgment far from us, neither doth justice overtake us: we wait for light, but behold obscurity; for brightness, but we walk in darkness.

23~ISAIAH 059|010` We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes: we stumble at noon day as in the night; we are in desolate places as dead men.

23~ISAIAH 059|011` We roar all like bears, and mourn sore like doves: we look for judgment, but there is none; for salvation, but it is far off from us.

23~ISAIAH 059|012` For our transgressions are multiplied before you, and our sins testify against us: for our transgressions are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them;

23~ISAIAH 059|013` In transgressing and lying against the Lord, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.

23~ISAIAH 059|014` And judgment is turned away backward, and justice stands afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.

23~ISAIAH 059|015` You, truth faileth; and he that departs from evil maketh himself a prey: and the Lord saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment.

23~ISAIAH 059|016` And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation to him; and his righteousness, it sustained him.

23~ISAIAH 059|017` For he put on righteousness as a breastplate, and an helmet of salvation upon his head; and he put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloke.

23~ISAIAH 059|018` According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay, fury to his adversaries, recompence to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompence.

23~ISAIAH 059|019` So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.

23~ISAIAH 059|020` And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and to them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the Lord.

23~ISAIAH 059|021` As for me, this is my covenient with them, saith the Lord; My spirit that is upon you, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed's seed, saith the Lord, from henceforth and for ever.

23~ISAIAH 060|001` Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.

23~ISAIAH 060|002` For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon you, and his glory shall be seen upon you.

23~ISAIAH 060|003` And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.

23~ISAIAH 060|004` Lift up yours eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to you: thy sons shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side.

23~ISAIAH 060|005` Then you shalt see, and flow together, and yours heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be converted to you, the forces of the Gentiles shall come to you.

23~ISAIAH 060|006` The multitude of camels shall cover you, the dromedaries of Midian and Ephah; all they from Sheba shall come: they shall bring gold and incense; and they shall shew forth the praises of the Lord.

23~ISAIAH 060|007` All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together to you, the rams of Nebaioth shall minister to you: they shall come up with acceptance on mine altar, and I will glorify the house of my glory.

23~ISAIAH 060|008` Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows?

23~ISAIAH 060|009` Surely the isles shall wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring thy sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, to the name of the Lord thy God, and to the Holy One of Israel, because he hath glorified you.

23~ISAIAH 060|010` And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister to you: for in my wrath I smote you, but in my favour have I had mercy on you.

23~ISAIAH 060|011` Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring to you the forces of the Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought.

23~ISAIAH 060|012` For the nation and kingdom that will not serve you shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.

23~ISAIAH 060|013` The glory of Lebanon shall come to you, the fir tree, the pine tree, and the box together, to beautify the place of my sanctuary; and I will make the place of my feet glorious.

23~ISAIAH 060|014` The sons also of them that afflicted you shall come bending to you; and all they that despised you shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call you; The city of the Lord, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.

23~ISAIAH 060|015` Whereas you hast been forsaken and hated, so that no man went fZfXaW+I-_ through you, I will make you an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations.

23~ISAIAH 060|016` You shalt also suck the milk of the Gentiles, and shalt suck the breast of kings: and you shalt know that I the Lord am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.

23~ISAIAH 060|017` For brass I will bring gold, and for iron I will bring silver, and for wood brass, and for stones iron: I will also make thy officers peace, and yours exactors righteousness.

23~ISAIAH 060|018` Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but you shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise.

23~ISAIAH 060|019` The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light to you: but the Lord shall be to you an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.

23~ISAIAH 060|020` Your sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the Lord shall be yours everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.

23~ISAIAH 060|021` Your people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified.

23~ISAIAH 060|022` A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the Lord will hasten it in his time.

23~ISAIAH 061|001` The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings to 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;

23~ISAIAH 061|002` To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;

23~ISAIAH 061|003` To appoint to them that mourn in Zion, to give to them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.

23~ISAIAH 061|004` And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.

23~ISAIAH 061|005` And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.

23~ISAIAH 061|006` But you shall be named the Priests of the Lord: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: you shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall you boast yourselves.

23~ISAIAH 061|007` For your shame you shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be to them.

23~ISAIAH 061|008` For I the Lord love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenient with them.

23~ISAIAH 061|009` And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which the Lord hath blessed.

23~ISAIAH 061|010` 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 fZfXaW+I-_ covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorne herself with her jewels.

23~ISAIAH 061|011` For as the earth brings forth her bud, and as the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.

23~ISAIAH 062|001` For Zion's sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burn.

23~ISAIAH 062|002` And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and you shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the Lord shall name.

23~ISAIAH 062|003` You shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.

23~ISAIAH 062|004` You shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but you shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the Lord delights in you, and thy land shall be married.

23~ISAIAH 062|005` For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons marry you: and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over you.

23~ISAIAH 062|006` I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: you that make mention of the Lord, keep not silence,

23~ISAIAH 062|007` And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.

23~ISAIAH 062|008` The Lord hath sworn by his right hand, and by the arm of his strength, Surely I will no more give thy corn to be meat for yours enemies; and the sons of the stranger shall not drink thy wine, for the which you hast laboured:

23~ISAIAH 062|009` But they that have gathered it shall eat it, and praise the Lord; and they that have brought it together shall drink it in the courts of my holiness.

23~ISAIAH 062|010` Go through, go through the gates; prepare you the way of the fZfXaW+I-_ people; cast up, cast up the highway; gather out the stones; lift up a standard for the people.

23~ISAIAH 062|011` Behold, the Lord hath proclaimed to the end of the world, Say you to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation comes; behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.

23~ISAIAH 062|012` And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of the Lord: and you shalt be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken.

23~ISAIAH 063|001` Who is this that comes from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save.

23~ISAIAH 063|002` Wherefore art you red in yours apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat?

23~ISAIAH 063|003` I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment.

23~ISAIAH 063|004` For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.

23~ISAIAH 063|005` And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore mine own arm brought salvation to me; and my fury, it upheld me.

23~ISAIAH 063|006` And I will tread down the people in mine anger, and make them drunk in my fury, and I will bring down their strength to the earth.

23~ISAIAH 063|007` I will mention the lovingkindnesses of the Lord, and the praises of the Lord, according to all that the Lord hath bestowed on us, and the great goodness toward the house of Israel, which he hath bestowed on them according to his mercies, and according to the multitude of his lovingkindnesses.

23~ISAIAH 063|008` For he said, Surely they are my people, children that will not lie: so he was their Saviour.

23~ISAIAH 063|009` In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them: in his love and in his pity he redeemed them; and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old.

23~ISAIAH 063|010` But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them.

23~ISAIAH 063|011` Then he remembered the days of old, Moses, and his people, saying, Where is he that brought them up out of the sea with the shepherd of his flock? where is he that put his holy Spirit within him?

23~ISAIAH 063|012` That led them by the right hand of Moses with his glorious arm, dividing the water before them, to make himself an everlasting name?

23~ISAIAH 063|013` That led them through the deep, as an horse in the wilderness, that they should not stumble?

23~ISAIAH 063|014` As a beast goeth down into the valley, the Spirit of the Lord caused him to rest: so didst you lead thy people, to make thyself a glorious name.

23~ISAIAH 063|015` Look down from heaven, and behold from the habitation of thy holiness and of thy glory: where is thy zeal and thy strength, the sounding of thy bowels and of thy mercies toward me? are they restrained?

23~ISAIAH 063|016` Doubtless you art our father, though Abraham be ignorant of us, and Israel acknowledge us not: you, O Lord, art our father, our redeemer; thy name is from everlasting.

23~ISAIAH 063|017` O Lord, why hast you made us to err from thy ways, and hardened our heart from thy fear? Return for thy servants' sake, the tribes of yours inheritance.

23~ISAIAH 063|018` The people of thy holiness have possessed it but a little while: our adversaries have trodden down thy sanctuary.

23~ISAIAH 063|019` We are yours: you never barest rule over them; they were not called by thy name.

23~ISAIAH 064|001` Oh that you wouldest rend the heavens, that you wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at thy presence,

23~ISAIAH 064|002` As when the melting fire burn, the fire causes the waters to boil, to make thy name known to yours adversaries, that the nations may tremble at thy presence!

23~ISAIAH 064|003` When you didst terrible things which we looked not for, you came down, the mountains flowed down at thy presence.

23~ISAIAH 064|004` For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside you, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him.

23~ISAIAH 064|005` You meetest him that rejoiceth and worketh righteousness, those that remember you in thy ways: behold, you art wroth; for we have sinned: in those is continuance, and we shall be saved.

23~ISAIAH 064|006` But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

23~ISAIAH 064|007` And there is none that call upon thy name, that stirs up himself to take hold of you: for you hast hid thy face from us, and hast consumed us, because of our iniquities.

23~ISAIAH 064|008` But now, O Lord, you art our father; we are the clay, and you our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.

23~ISAIAH 064|009` Be not wroth very sore, O Lord, neither remember iniquity for ever: behold, see, we beseech you, we are all thy people.

23~ISAIAH 064|010` Your holy cities are a wilderness, Zion is a wilderness, Jerusalem a desolation.

23~ISAIAH 064|011` Our holy and our beautiful house, where our fathers praised you, is burned up with fire: and all our pleasant things are laid waste.

23~ISAIAH 064|012` Wilt you refrain thyself for these things, O Lord? wilt you hold thy peace, and afflict us very sore?

23~ISAIAH 065|001` I Am sought of them that asked not for me; I am found of them that sought me not: I said, Behold me, behold me, to a nation that was not called by my name.

23~ISAIAH 065|002` I have spread out my hands all the day to a rebellious people, which walketh in a way that was not good, after their own thoughts;

23~ISAIAH 065|003` A people that provoketh me to anger continually to my face; that sacrificeth in gardens, and burn incense upon altars of brick;

23~ISAIAH 065|004` Which remain among the graves, and lodge in the monuments, which eat swine's flesh, and broth of abominable things is in their vessels;

23~ISAIAH 065|005` Which say, Stand by thyself, come not near to me; for I am holier than you. These are a smoke in my nose, a fire that burn all the day.

23~ISAIAH 065|006` Behold, it is written before me: I will not keep silence, but will recompense, even recompense into their bosom,

23~ISAIAH 065|007` Your iniquities, and the iniquities of your fathers together, saith the Lord, which have burned incense upon the mountains, and blasphemed me upon the hills: therefore will I measure their former work into their bosom.

23~ISAIAH 065|008` Thus saith the Lord, As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one saith, Destroy it not; for a blessing is in it: so will I do for my servants' sakes, that I may not destroy them all.

23~ISAIAH 065|009` And I will bring forth a seed out of Jacob, and out of Judah an inheritor of my mountains: and mine elect shall inherit it, and my servants shall dwell there.

23~ISAIAH 065|010` And Sharon shall be a fold of flocks, and the valley of Achor a place for the herds to lie down in, for my people that have sought me.

23~ISAIAH 065|011` But you are they that forsake the Lord, that forget my holy mountain, that prepare a table for that troop, and that furnish the drink offering to that number.

23~ISAIAH 065|012` Therefore will I number you to the sword, and you shall all bow down to the slaughter: because when I called, you did not answer; when I spoke, you did not hear; but did evil before mine eyes, and did choose that wherein I delighted not.

23~ISAIAH 065|013` Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, my servants shall eat, but you shall be hungry: behold, my servants shall drink, but you shall be thirsty: behold, my servants shall rejoice, but you shall be ashamed:

23~ISAIAH 065|014` Behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart, but you shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for vexation of spirit.

23~ISAIAH 065|015` And you shall leave your name for a curse to my chosen: for the Lord God shall slay you, and call his servants by another name:

23~ISAIAH 065|016` That he who blesses himself in the earth shall bless himself in the God of truth; and he that swears in the earth shall swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are hid from mine eyes.

23~ISAIAH 065|017` For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.

23~ISAIAH 065|018` But be you glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy.

23~ISAIAH 065|019` And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.

23~ISAIAH 065|020` There shall be no more there an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be fZfXaW+I-_ accursed.

23~ISAIAH 065|021` And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them.

23~ISAIAH 065|022` They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands.

23~ISAIAH 065|023` They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the Lord, and their offspring with them.

23~ISAIAH 065|024` And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.

23~ISAIAH 065|025` The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the Lord.

23~ISAIAH 066|001` Thus saith the Lord, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that you build to me? and where is the place of my rest?

23~ISAIAH 066|002` 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.

23~ISAIAH 066|003` He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a dog's neck; he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine's blood; he that burn incense, as if he blessed an idol. You, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delights in their abominations.

23~ISAIAH 066|004` I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spoke, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.

23~ISAIAH 066|005` Hear the word of the Lord, you that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name's sake, said, Let the Lord be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed.

23~ISAIAH 066|006` A voice of noise from the city, a voice from the temple, a voice of the Lord that rendereth recompence to his enemies.

23~ISAIAH 066|007` Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child.

23~ISAIAH 066|008` 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.

23~ISAIAH 066|009` Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith the Lord: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? saith thy God.

23~ISAIAH 066|010` Rejoice you with Jerusalem, and be glad with her, all you that love her: rejoice for joy with her, all you that mourn for her:

23~ISAIAH 066|011` That you may suck, and be satisfied with the breasts of her consolations; that you may milk out, and be delighted with the abundance of her glory.

23~ISAIAH 066|012` 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 fZfXaW+I-_ shall you suck, you shall be borne upon her sides, and be dandled upon her knees.

23~ISAIAH 066|013` As one whom his mother comforts, so will I comfort you; and you shall be comforted in Jerusalem.

23~ISAIAH 066|014` And when you 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.

23~ISAIAH 066|015` 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.

23~ISAIAH 066|016` For by fire and by his sword will the Lord plead with all flesh: and the slain of the Lord shall be many.

23~ISAIAH 066|017` They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the Lord.

23~ISAIAH 066|018` 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.

23~ISAIAH 066|019` And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those that escape of them to the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal, and Javan, 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.

23~ISAIAH 066|020` And they shall bring all your brethren for an offering to 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.

23~ISAIAH 066|021` And I will also take of them for priests and for Levites, saith the Lord.

23~ISAIAH 066|022` 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~ISAIAH 066|023` And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and fZfXaW+I-_ from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the Lord.

23~ISAIAH 066|024` And they shall go forth, and look upon the bodies 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 to all flesh.
