Isaiah 3

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] [20] [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31] [32] [33] [34] [35] [36] [37] [38] [39] [40] [41] [42] [43] [44] [45] [46] [47] [48] [49] [50] [51] [52] [53] [54] [55] [56] [57] [58] [59] [60] [61] [62] [63] [64] [65] [66]

IS 3:1 For, behold, the Lord, Jehovah of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah stay and staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water;

IS 3:2 the mighty man, and the man of war; the judge, and the prophet, and the diviner, and the elder;

IS 3:3 the captain of fifty, and the honorable man, and the counsellor, and the expert artificer, and the skilful enchanter.

IS 3:4 And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them.

IS 3:5 And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbor: the child shall behave himself proudly against the old man, and the base against the honorable.

IS 3:6 When a man shall take hold of his brother in the house of his father, `saying', Thou hast clothing, be thou our ruler, and let this ruin be under thy hand;

IS 3:7 in that day shall he lift up `his voice', saying, I will not be a healer; for in my house is neither bread nor clothing: ye shall not make me ruler of the people.

IS 3:8 For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen; because their tongue and their doings are against Jehovah, to provoke the eyes of his glory.

IS 3:9 The show of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have done evil unto themselves.

IS 3:10 Say ye of the righteous, that `it shall be' well `with him'; for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.

IS 3:11 Woe unto the wicked! `it shall be' ill `with him'; for what his hands have done shall be done unto him.

IS 3:12 As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they that lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.

IS 3:13 Jehovah standeth up to contend, and standeth to judge the peoples.

IS 3:14 Jehovah will enter into judgment with the elders of his people, and the princes thereof: It is ye that have eaten up the vineyard; the spoil of the poor is in your houses:

IS 3:15 what mean ye that ye crush my people, and grind the face of the poor? saith the Lord, Jehovah of hosts.

IS 3:16 Moreover Jehovah said, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with outstretched necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet;

IS 3:17 therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and Jehovah will lay bare their secret parts.

IS 3:18 In that day the Lord will take away the beauty of their anklets, and the cauls, and the crescents;

IS 3:19 the pendants, and the bracelets, and the mufflers;

IS 3:20 the headtires, and the ankle chains, and the sashes, and the perfume-boxes, and the amulets;

IS 3:21 the rings, and the nose-jewels;

IS 3:22 the festival robes, and the mantles, and the shawls, and the satchels;

IS 3:23 the hand-mirrors, and the fine linen, and the turbans, and the veils.

IS 3:24 And it shall come to pass, that instead of sweet spices there shall be rottenness; and instead of a girdle, a rope; and instead of well set hair, baldness; and instead of a robe, a girding of sackcloth; branding instead of beauty.

IS 3:25 Thy men shall fall by the sword, and thy mighty in the war.

IS 3:26 And her gates shall lament and mourn; and she shall be desolate and sit upon the ground.
