023:Book 23


023: Isaiah Book 23


023: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.


023:001:002
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.


023:001:003
The ox knoweth his owner,
and the ass his master's crib:
but Israel doth not know,
my people doth not consider.


023:001:004
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 unto anger,
they are gone away backward.


023:001:005
Why should ye be stricken any more?
ye will revolt more and more:
the whole head is sick,
and the whole heart faint.


023:001:006
From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it;
but wounds,
and bruises,
and putrifying sores:
they have not been closed,
neither bound up,
neither mollified with ointment.


023:001:007
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.


023:001:008
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.


023:001:009
Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant,
we should have been as Sodom,
and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.


023:001:010
Hear the word of the LORD,
ye rulers of Sodom;
give ear unto the law of our God,
ye people of Gomorrah.


023:001:011
To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me?
saith the LORD:
I am full of the burnt offerings of rams,
and the fat of fed beasts;
and I delight not in the blood of bullocks,
or of lambs,
or of he goats.


023:001:012
When ye come to appear before me,
who hath required this at your hand,
to tread my courts?


023:001:013
Bring no more vain oblations;
incense is an abomination unto me;
the new moons and sabbaths,
the calling of assemblies,
I cannot away with;
it is iniquity,
even the solemn meeting.


023:001:014
Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth:
they are a trouble unto me;
I am weary to bear them.


023:001:015
And when ye spread forth your hands,
I will hide mine eyes from you:
yea,
when ye make many prayers,
I will not hear:
your hands are full of blood.


023:001:016
Wash you,
make you clean;
put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes;
cease to do evil;


023:001:017
Learn to do well;
seek judgment,
relieve the oppressed,
judge the fatherless,
plead for the widow.


023:001:018
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.


023:001:019
If ye be willing and obedient,
ye shall eat the good of the land:


023:001:020
But if ye refuse and rebel,
ye shall be devoured with the sword:
for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.


023:001:021
How is the faithful city become an harlot!
it was full of judgment;
righteousness lodged in it;
but now murderers.


023:001:022
Thy silver is become dross,
thy wine mixed with water:


023:001:023
Thy 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 unto them.


023:001:024
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:


023:001:025
And I will turn my hand upon thee,
and purely purge away thy dross,
and take away all thy tin:


023:001:026
And I will restore thy judges as at the first,
and thy counsellors as at the beginning:
afterward thou shalt be called,
The city of righteousness,
the faithful city.


023:001:027
Zion shall be redeemed with judgment,
and her converts with righteousness.


023:001:028
And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together,
and they that forsake the LORD shall be consumed.


023:001:029
For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which ye have desired,
and ye shall be confounded for the gardens that ye have chosen.


023:001:030
For ye shall be as an oak whose leaf fadeth,
and as a garden that hath no water.


023:001:031
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.
