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, Yahweh of Hosts, takes away from Jerusalem and from Judah supply and support, The whole supply of bread, And the whole supply of water;

IS 3:2 The mighty man, The man of war, The judge, The prophet, The diviner, The elder,

IS 3:3 The captain of fifty, The honorable man, The counselor, The skilled craftsman, And the clever enchanter.

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

IS 3:5 The people will be oppressed, Everyone by another, And everyone by his neighbor. The child will behave himself proudly against the old man, And the base against the honorable.

IS 3:6 Indeed a man shall take hold of his brother in the house of his father, saying, "You have clothing, you be our ruler, And let this ruin be under your hand."

IS 3:7 In that day he will cry out, saying, I will not be a healer; For in my house is neither bread nor clothing. You 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 Yahweh, To provoke the eyes of his glory.

IS 3:9 The look of their faces testify against them. They parade their sin like Sodom. They don't hide it. Woe to their soul! For they have brought disaster upon themselves.

IS 3:10 Tell the righteous "Good!" For they shall eat the fruit of their deeds.

IS 3:11 Woe to the wicked! Disaster is upon them; For the deeds of his hands will be paid back to him.

IS 3:12 As for my people, children are their oppressors, And women rule over them. My people, those who lead you cause you to err, And destroy the way of your paths.

IS 3:13 Yahweh stands up to contend, And stands to judge the peoples.

IS 3:14 Yahweh will enter into judgment with the elders of his people, And their leaders: "It is you who have eaten up the vineyard. The spoil of the poor is in your houses.

IS 3:15 What do you mean that you crush my people, And grind the face of the poor?" says the Lord, Yahweh of Hosts.

IS 3:16 Moreover Yahweh said, "Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, And walk with outstretched necks and flirting eyes, Walking to trip as they go, Jingling ornaments on their feet;

IS 3:17 Therefore the Lord brings sores on the crown of the head of the women of Zion, And Yahweh will make their scalps bald."

IS 3:18 In that day the Lord will take away the beauty of their anklets, the headbands, the crescent necklaces,

IS 3:19 the earrings, the bracelets, the veils,

IS 3:20 the headdresses, the ankle chains, the sashes, the perfume bottles, the charms,

IS 3:21 the signet rings, the nose rings,

IS 3:22 the fine robes, the capes, the cloaks, the purses,

IS 3:23 the hand-mirrors, the fine linen garments, the tiaras, and the shawls.

IS 3:24 It shall happen that instead of sweet spices, there shall be rottenness; Instead of a belt, a rope; Instead of well set hair, baldness; Instead of a robe, a girding of sackcloth; And branding instead of beauty.

IS 3:25 Your men shall fall by the sword, And your mighty in the war.

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