Isaiah 11 The 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. 2 Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth; for Jehovah hath spoken: I have ▼ nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me. ▼
▼ 1) Or made great and exalted ; See Eze 31:43 The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master’s crib; but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider. 4 Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evil-doers, children that deal corruptly! they have forsaken Jehovah, they have despised the Holy One of Israel, they are estranged and gone backward. 5 ▼ Why will ye be still stricken, that ye revolt more and more? ▼ the whole head is sick, and ▼ the whole heart faint. ▼
▼ 1) Or Why should ye be stricken any more? ye will revolt etc 2) Or every6 From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and fresh stripes: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with oil. 7 Your 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. ▼
▼ 1) Or as the overthrow of strangers8 And the daughter of Zion is left as a booth in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city. 9 Except Jehovah of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, we should have been like unto Gomorrah. 10 Hear the word of Jehovah, ye ▼ rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the ▼ law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah. ▼
▼ 1) Or judges 2) Or teaching11 What unto me is the multitude of your sacrifices? saith Jehovah: I have had enough 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. 12 When ye come ▼ to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to trample my courts? ▼
▼ 1) Or as otherwise read to see my face13 Bring no more ▼ vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; new moon and sabbath, the calling of assemblies,— ▼ I cannot away with iniquity and the solemn meeting. ▼
▼ 1) Heb an oblation of vanity 2) Or I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth; they are a ▼ trouble unto me; I am weary of bearing them. ▼
▼ 1) Or cumbrance15 And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you; yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood. 16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; 17 learn to do well; seek justice, ▼ relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow. ▼
▼ 1) Or set right the oppressor18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith Jehovah: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. 19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: 20 but if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword; for the mouth of Jehovah hath spoken it. 21 How is the faithful city become a harlot! she that was full of justice! righteousness lodged in her, but now murderers. 22 Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water. 23 Thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves; every one loveth bribes, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them. 24 Therefore saith the Lord, Jehovah of hosts, the Mighty One of Israel, Ah, I will ease me of mine adversaries, and avenge me of mine enemies; 25 and I will ▼ turn my hand upon thee, and ▼ thoroughly purge away thy dross, and will take away all thy ▼
▼ 3tin; ▼
▼ 1) Or bring my hand again 2) Heb as with lye 3) Or alloy26 and I will restore thy judges as at the first, and thy counsellors as at the beginning: afterward thou shalt be called The city of righteousness, a faithful town. 27 Zion shall be redeemed with justice, and ▼ her converts with righteousness. ▼
▼ 1) Or they that return of her28 But the ▼ destruction of transgressors and sinners shall be together, and they that forsake Jehovah shall be consumed. ▼
▼ 1) Heb breaking29 For they shall be ashamed of the ▼ oaks which ye have desired, and ye shall be confounded for the gardens that ye have chosen. ▼
▼ 1) Or terebinths30 For ye shall be as ▼ an oak whose leaf fadeth, and as a garden that hath no water. ▼
▼ 1) Or a terebinth31 And the strong shall be as tow, and his work as a spark; and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench them.
