Isaiah 33

33
XXXIII
1Wo unto thee that spoilest, and thou hast not been spoiled;
And that plunderest, and they have not plundered thee:
When thou shalt cease to spoil, thou shalt be spoiled;
And when thou shalt make an end to plunder, they shall plunder thee.
2O Jehovah, be gracious unto us; we have waited for thee:
Be thou their arm every morning,
Our salvation also in the time of distress.
3At the noise of the tumult the people fled;
When thou didst raise thyself up, the nations were scattered.
4But your spoil shall be gathered, as the caterpillar gathereth;
As the locusts run to and fro, so shall men run upon it.
5 Jehovah is exalted, for he dwelleth on high:
He hath filled Zion with judgment and justice.
6And there shall be stability of thy times,
For wisdom and knowledge shall be the riches of salvation;
The fear of Jehovah, this shall be his treasure.
7Behold their valiant men! they raise a cry without; The messengers of peace! they weep bitterly.
8The highways are desolate,
The wayfaring man ceaseth:
He hath broken the covenant; he hath despised the cities;
He regardeth not man.
9The land mourneth, it languished!;
Lebanon is put to shame, it withereth:
Sharon is become like a desert,
And Bashan and Carmel shake off their foliage.
10Now will I arise, saith Jehovah;
Now will I be exalted; now will I lift up myself.
11Ye shall conceive chaff, ye shall bring forth stubble;
Your anger, it is a fire that shall consume you.
12And the people shall be as stones burnt into lime,
As thorns that are cut off are consumed in the fire.
13Hear, ye that are afar off, my doings;
And ye that are near, acknowledge my might.
14The sinners in Zion are struck with dread,
Trembling hath seized the wicked:
Who among us can dwell with the devouring fire?
Who among us can dwell with everlasting burnings?
15He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly;
He that despiseth the gain of oppression,
That shaketh his hands from holding of bribes,
That stoppeth his ears from hearing of bloodshed,
And shutteth his eyes from seeing evil;
16He shall dwell on high:
The strong holds of the rocks shall be his fortress,
His bread shall be given him; his waters shall not fail.
17Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty:
They shall see the land far extended.
18Thine heart shall reflect on the terror:
Where is now the notary? where is the weigher of tribute?
Where is he that noted down the towers?
19That fierce people shalt thou see no more;
A people of a deep speech, which thou couldst not understand;
Of a barbarous language, which thou couldst not comprehend.
20Look upon Zion, the city of our solemn feasts:
Thine eyes shall see Jerusalem a quiet habitation,
A tabernacle that shall not be removed;
Not one of the stakes thereof shall be plucked up for ever,
Neither shall any of the cords thereof be snapped asunder.
21But there shall the Mighty One, Jehovah, be unto us
Instead of rivers, and branching streams;
There shall not go therein a ship with oars,
Neither shall a mighty vessel pass over it.
22For Jehovah is our judge; Jehovah is our lawgiver;
Jehovah is our king: he shall save us.
23Thy ropes are loosed, O thou enemy!
So that they cannot strengthen the basis of their mast;
They have not spread the sail.
Then shall be divided the prey of a great spoil;
The lame shall seize the prey.
24Neither shall the inhabitant say, I am sick:
The people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity.

Isaiah 33

33
1Woe to you, destroyer,
who yourself have not been destroyed;
you treacherous one,
with whom none has dealt treacherously!
When you have ceased to destroy,
you will be destroyed;
and when you have made an end of dealing treacherously,
you will be dealt with treacherously.
2O Lord, be gracious to us; we wait for thee.
Be our arm every morning,
our salvation in the time of trouble.
3At the thunderous noise peoples flee,
at the lifting up of thyself nations are scattered;
4and spoil is gathered as the caterpillar gathers;
as locusts leap, men leap upon it.
5The Lord is exalted, for he dwells on high;
he will fill Zion with justice and righteousness;
6and he will be the stability of your times,
abundance of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge;
the fear of the Lord is his treasure.
7Behold, the valiant ones#33.7 The meaning of the Hebrew word is uncertain cry without;
the envoys of peace weep bitterly.
8The highways lie waste,
the wayfaring man ceases.
Covenants are broken,
witnesses#33.8 One ancient Ms: Heb cities are despised,
there is no regard for man.
9The land mourns and languishes;
Lebanon is confounded and withers away;
Sharon is like a desert;
and Bashan and Carmel shake off their leaves.
10“Now I will arise,” says the Lord,
“now I will lift myself up;
now I will be exalted.
11You conceive chaff, you bring forth stubble;
your breath is a fire that will consume you.
12And the peoples will be as if burned to lime,
like thorns cut down, that are burned in the fire.”
13Hear, you who are far off, what I have done;
and you who are near, acknowledge my might.
14The sinners in Zion are afraid;
trembling has seized the godless:
“Who among us can dwell with the devouring fire?
Who among us can dwell with everlasting burnings?”
15He who walks righteously and speaks uprightly,
who despises the gain of oppressions,
who shakes his hands, lest they hold a bribe,
who stops his ears from hearing of bloodshed
and shuts his eyes from looking upon evil,
16he will dwell on the heights;
his place of defense will be the fortresses of rocks;
his bread will be given him, his water will be sure.
17Your eyes will see the king in his beauty;
they will behold a land that stretches afar.
18Your mind will muse on the terror:
“Where is he who counted, where is he who weighed the tribute?
Where is he who counted the towers?”
19You will see no more the insolent people,
the people of an obscure speech which you cannot comprehend,
stammering in a tongue which you cannot understand.
20Look upon Zion, the city of our appointed feasts!
Your eyes will see Jerusalem,
a quiet habitation, an immovable tent,
whose stakes will never be plucked up,
nor will any of its cords be broken.
21But there the Lord in majesty will be for us
a place of broad rivers and streams,
where no galley with oars can go,
nor stately ship can pass.
22For the Lord is our judge, the Lord is our ruler,
the Lord is our king; he will save us.
23Your tackle hangs loose;
it cannot hold the mast firm in its place,
or keep the sail spread out.
Then prey and spoil in abundance will be divided;
even the lame will take the prey.
24And no inhabitant will say, “I am sick”;
the people who dwell there will be forgiven their iniquity.
