Isaiah 32

The Glorious Future

Behold, a a king will reign righteously
And princes will rule justly.
Each will be like a b refuge from the wind
And a shelter from the storm,
Like
Lit canals
,
d streams of water in a dry country,
Like the e shade of a
Lit heavy
huge rock in
Lit an exhausted
a parched land.
Then h the eyes of those who see will not be
Or turned away
blinded,
And the ears of those who hear will listen.
The
Lit heart
mind of the k hasty will discern the
Lit knowledge
truth,
And the tongue of the stammerers will hasten to speak clearly.
No longer will the m fool be called noble,
Or the rogue be spoken of as generous.
For a fool speaks nonsense,
And his heart
Or does
,
o inclines toward wickedness:
To practice p ungodliness and to speak error against the  Lord,
To
Lit make empty the hungry soul
,
r keep the hungry person unsatisfied
And
Lit he causes to lack
to withhold drink from the thirsty.
As for a rogue, his weapons are evil;
He t devises wicked schemes
To u destroy the afflicted with
Lit words of falsehood
slander,
w Even though the needy one speaks
Lit justly
what is right.
But y the noble man devises noble plans;
And by noble plans he stands.

Rise up, you z women who are at ease,
And hear my voice;
aa Give ear to my word,
You complacent daughters.
10 Within a year and a few days
You will be troubled, O complacent daughters;
ab For the vintage is ended,
And the fruit gathering will not come.
11 Tremble, you women who are at ease;
ac Be troubled, you complacent daughters;
ad Strip, undress and put sackcloth on your waist,
12  ae Beat your breasts for the pleasant fields, for the fruitful vine,
13  af For the land of my people in which thorns and briars shall come up;
Yea, for all the joyful houses and for the ag jubilant city.
14 Because ah the palace has been abandoned, the
Lit multitude of the
populated aj city forsaken.
Or Ophel
Hill and watch-tower have become al caves forever,
A delight for am wild donkeys, a pasture for flocks;
15 Until the an Spirit is poured out upon us from on high,
And the wilderness becomes a ao fertile field,
And the fertile field is considered as a forest.
16 Then ap justice will dwell in the wilderness
And righteousness will abide in the fertile field.
17 And the aq work of righteousness will be peace,
And the service of righteousness ar quietness and
Or security
confidence forever.
18 Then my people will live in a at peaceful habitation,
And in secure dwellings and in undisturbed au resting places;
19 And it will av hail when the aw forest comes down,
And ax the city will be utterly laid low.
20 How ay blessed will you be, you who sow beside all waters,
Who
Lit send out the foot of the ox
let out freely the ox and the donkey.
