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]

3:1 For, behold, the Lord, Yahweh of Armies, takes away from Jerusalem and from Judah supply and support, the whole supply of bread, and the whole supply of water;

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

3:3 the captain of fifty, the honorable man, the counselor, the skilled craftsman, and the clever enchanter.

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

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.

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."

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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

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.

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

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;

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."

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

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

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

3:21 the signet rings, the nose rings,

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

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

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.

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

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