Isaiah 1

1
1The vision of Yesha’yahu [Yehovah has saved] the son of Amotz [strong], which he saw concerning Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised] and Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace] in the days of ‘Uziyah [my strength is Yehovah], Toram [Yehovah is Perfect], Achaz [he has grasped], [and] Hizkiyahu [Yehovah is my strength], kings of Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised].
2Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) has spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me.
3The ox knows his owner, and the ass his master’s crib: [but] Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] does not know, my people does not consider.
4Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), they have provoked the Holy One of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] unto anger, they are gone away backward.
5Why should you2f be stricken anymore? you2f will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.
6From the sole of the foot even unto the head [there is] no soundness in it; [but] wounds, and bruises, and putrefying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified (be softened; appeased) with ointment.
7Your 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.
8And the daughter of Tziyon [parched place] is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city.
9Except the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) Tz’va’ot [of the Heavenly Armies] had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as S’dom [Burning], [and] we should have been like unto ‘Amora [Submersion].
10Hear the word of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), you2f rulers of S’dom [Burning]; give ear unto the Torah of our God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered], you2f people of ‘Amora [Submersion].
11To what purpose [is] the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate): 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.
12When you2f come to appear before me, who has required this at your hand, to trample my courts?
13Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and Shabbat, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; [it is] iniquity, even the solemn meeting.
14Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hates: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear [them].
15And when you2f spread forth your hands, I will hide my eyes from you: yes, when you2f make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.
16Wash you, make yourself clean; put away the evil of your doings from before my eyes; cease to do evil;
17Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, defend the fatherless, plead for the widow.
18Come now, and let us reason together, says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate): though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
19If you2f be willing and obedient, you2f shall eat the good of the land:
20But if you2f refuse and rebel, you2f shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) has spoken [it].
21How is the faithful city become an prostitute! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.
22Your1s silver is become scum, youri wine mixed with water:
23Your1s princes [are] rebellious, and companions of thieves: everyone loves gifts, and follows after rewards: they defend not the fatherless, neither does the cause of the widow come unto them.
24Therefore says the Lord-Adon [Lord of the Earth], the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) Tz’va’ot [of the Heavenly Armies], the mighty One of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], Ah, I will free myself of my adversaries, and avenge me of my enemies:
25And I will turn my hand upon youi, and purely purge away youri scum, and take away all youri tin:
26And I will restore youri as at the first, and youri counselors as at the beginning: afterward youi shall be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city.
27Tziyon [parched place] shall be redeemed with judgment, and her repentant [ones] with righteousness.
28And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners [shall be] together, and they that forsake the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) shall be consumed.
29For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which you2f have desired, and you2f shall be confounded for the gardens that you2f have chosen.
30For you2f shall be as an oak whose leaf fades, and as a garden that has no water.
31And the strong shall be as tinder, and the maker of it as a spark, and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench [them].

Isaiah 1

1
1The 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.
2Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth;
for the Lord has spoken:
“Sons have I reared and brought up,
but they have rebelled against me.
3The ox knows its owner,
and the ass its master's crib;
but Israel does not know,
my people does not understand.”
4Ah, sinful nation,
a people laden with iniquity,
offspring of evildoers,
sons who deal corruptly!
They have forsaken the Lord,
they have despised the Holy One of Israel,
they are utterly estranged.
5Why will you still be smitten,
that you continue to rebel?
The whole head is sick,
and the whole heart faint.
6From the sole of the foot even to the head,
there is no soundness in it,
but bruises and sores
and bleeding wounds;
they are not pressed out, or bound up,
or softened with oil.
7Your country lies desolate,
your cities are burned with fire;
in your very presence
aliens devour your land;
it is desolate, as overthrown by aliens.
8And the daughter of Zion is left
like a booth in a vineyard,
like a lodge in a cucumber field,
like a besieged city.
9 # Rom 9.29. If the Lord of hosts
had not left us a few survivors,
we should have been like Sodom,
and become like Gomorrah.
10Hear the word of the Lord,
you rulers of Sodom!
Give ear to the teaching of our God,
you people of Gomorrah!
11“What to me is the multitude of your sacrifices?
says the Lord;
I have had enough of burnt offerings of rams
and the fat of fed beasts;
I do not delight in the blood of bulls,
or of lambs, or of he-goats.
12“When you come to appear before me,
who requires of you
this trampling of my courts?
13Bring no more vain offerings;
incense is an abomination to me.
New moon and sabbath and the calling of assemblies—
I cannot endure iniquity and solemn assembly.
14Your new moons and your appointed feasts
my soul hates;
they have become a burden to me,
I am weary of bearing them.
15When you spread forth your hands,
I will hide my eyes from you;
even though you make many prayers,
I will not listen;
your hands are full of blood.
16Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean;
remove the evil of your doings
from before my eyes;
cease to do evil,
17learn to do good;
seek justice,
correct oppression;
defend the fatherless,
plead for the widow.
18“Come now, let us reason together,
says the Lord:
though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red like crimson,
they shall become like wool.
19If you are willing and obedient,
you shall eat the good of the land;
20but if you refuse and rebel,
you shall be devoured by the sword;
for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”
21How the faithful city
has become a harlot,
she that was full of justice!
Righteousness lodged in her,
but now murderers.
22Your silver has become dross,
your wine mixed with water.
23Your princes are rebels
and companions of thieves.
Every one loves a bribe
and runs after gifts.
They do not defend the fatherless,
and the widow's cause does not come to them.
24Therefore the Lord says,
the Lord of hosts,
the Mighty One of Israel:
“Ah, I will vent my wrath on my enemies,
and avenge myself on my foes.
25I will turn my hand against you
and will smelt away your dross as with lye
and remove all your alloy.
26And I will restore your judges as at the first,
and your counselors as at the beginning.
Afterward you shall be called the city of righteousness,
the faithful city.”
27Zion shall be redeemed by justice,
and those in her who repent, by righteousness.
28But rebels and sinners shall be destroyed together,
and those who forsake the Lord shall be consumed.
29For you shall be ashamed of the oaks
in which you delighted;
and you shall blush for the gardens
which you have chosen.
30For you shall be like an oak
whose leaf withers,
and like a garden without water.
31And the strong shall become tow,
and his work a spark,
and both of them shall burn together,
with none to quench them.
