Rebellion of God’s People1 The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz concerning a Judah and Jerusalem, which he saw during the ▼
▼ Lit daysreigns of c Uzziah d Jotham e Ahaz and f Hezekiah, kings of Judah. 2 g Listen, O heavens, and hear, O h earth;
For the Lord speaks,
i “Sons I have reared and brought up,
But they have j revolted against Me.
3 “An ox knows its owner,
And a donkey its master’s manger,
But Israel k does not know,
My people l do not understand.”
4 Alas, sinful nation,
People weighed down with iniquity,
▼ Lit Seed, n Offspring of evildoers,
Sons who o act corruptly!
They have p abandoned the Lord,
They have q despised the Holy One of Israel,
They have turned away ▼
▼ Lit backwardfrom Him.
5 Where will you be stricken again,
As you s continue in your rebellion?
The whole head is t sick
And the whole heart is faint.
6 u From the sole of the foot even to the head
There is v nothing sound in it,
Only bruises, welts and raw wounds,
w Not pressed out or bandaged,
Nor softened with oil.
7 Your x land is desolate,
Your cities are burned with fire,
Your fields— strangers are devouring them in your presence;
It is desolation, as overthrown by strangers.
8 The daughter of Zion is left like a shelter in a vineyard,
Like a watchman’s hut in a cucumber field, like a besieged city.
9 y Unless the Lord of hosts
Had left us a few z survivors,
We would be like aa Sodom,
We would be like Gomorrah.
God Has Had Enough10 Hear ab the word of the Lord,
You rulers of ac Sodom;
Give ear to the instruction of our God,
You people of Gomorrah.
11 ad “What are your multiplied sacrifices to Me?”
Says the Lord.
▼ Or am sated withhave had enough of burnt offerings of rams
And the fat of fed cattle;
And I take no pleasure in the blood of bulls, lambs or goats.
12 “When you come af to appear before Me,
Who requires ▼
▼ Lit of your handof you this trampling of My courts?
13 “Bring your worthless offerings no longer,
ah Incense is an abomination to Me.
ai New moon and sabbath, the aj calling of assemblies—
I cannot ak endure iniquity and the solemn assembly.
14 “I hate your new moon festivals and your al appointed feasts,
They have become a burden to Me;
I am am weary of bearing them.
15 “So when you an spread out your hands in prayer,
ao I will hide My eyes from you;
Yes, even though you ap multiply prayers,
I will not listen.
aq Your hands are ▼
▼ Lit full ofcovered with blood.
16 as “Wash yourselves, at make yourselves clean;
au Remove the evil of your deeds from My sight.
av Cease to do evil,
17 Learn to do good;
aw Seek justice,
Reprove the ruthless,
▼ Or Vindicate the fatherless, ay Defend the orphan,
Plead for the widow.
“Let Us Reason”18 “Come now, and az let us reason together,”
Says the Lord,
ba “Though your sins are as scarlet,
They will be as white as snow;
Though they are red like crimson,
They will be like wool.
19 bb “If you consent and obey,
You will bc eat the best of the land;
20 “But if you refuse and rebel,
You will be bd devoured by the sword.”
Truly be the mouth of the Lord has spoken.
Zion Corrupted, to Be Redeemed21 How the faithful city has become a bf harlot,
She who was full of justice!
Righteousness once lodged in her,
But now murderers.
22 Your silver has become dross,
Your drink diluted with water.
23 Your bg rulers are rebels
And companions of thieves;
Everyone bh loves a bribe
And chases after rewards.
They bi do not ▼
▼ Or vindicatedefend the ▼
▼ Or fatherlessorphan,
Nor does the widow’s plea come before them.
24 Therefore the Lord ▼
▼ Heb YHWH, usually rendered LordGod of hosts,
The bm Mighty One of Israel, declares,
“Ah, I will be relieved of My adversaries
And bn avenge Myself on My foes.
25 “I will also turn My hand against you,
And will bo smelt away your dross as with lye
And will remove all your alloy.
26 “Then I will restore your bp judges as at the first,
And your counselors as at the beginning;
After that you will be called the bq city of righteousness,
A faithful city.”
27 Zion will be br redeemed with justice
And her ▼
▼ Or returneesrepentant ones with righteousness.
28 But ▼
▼ Lit crushing of transgressors and sinners shall be togethertransgressors and sinners will be bu crushed together,
And those who forsake the Lord will come to an end.
29 Surely ▼
▼ So with some mss; M.T. theyyou will be ashamed of the ▼
▼ Or terebinths, bx oaks which you have desired,
And you will be embarrassed at the by gardens which you have chosen.
30 For you will be like an ▼
▼ Or terebinthoak whose ca leaf fades away
Or as a garden that has no water.
31 The strong man will become tinder,
His work also a spark.
Thus they shall both cb burn together
And there will be cc none to quench them.
