Isaiah 32

The Glorious Future

1Behold, a a  king will reign righteously
And princes will rule justly.
2Each will be like a b  refuge from the wind
And a shelter from the storm,
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.
3Then h  the eyes of those who see will not be
Or turned away
And the ears of those who hear will listen.
Lit heart
mind of the k  hasty will discern the
Lit knowledge
And the tongue of the stammerers will hasten to speak clearly.
5No longer will the m  fool be called noble,
Or the rogue be spoken of as generous.
6For a fool speaks nonsense,
And his heart
Or does
o  inclines toward wickedness:
To practice p  ungodliness and to speak error against the  Lord,
Lit make empty the hungry soul
r  keep the hungry person unsatisfied
Lit he causes to lack
to withhold drink from the thirsty.
7As for a rogue, his weapons are evil;
He t  devises wicked schemes
To u  destroy the afflicted with
Lit words of falsehood
w  Even though the needy one speaks
Lit justly
what is right.
8But y  the noble man devises noble plans;
And by noble plans he stands.

9Rise up, you z  women who are at ease,
And hear my voice;
aa  Give ear to my word,
You complacent daughters.
10Within 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.
11Tremble, 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.
14Because 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;
15Until 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.
16Then ap  justice will dwell in the wilderness
And righteousness will abide in the fertile field.
17And the aq  work of righteousness will be peace,
And the service of righteousness ar  quietness and
Or security
confidence forever.
18Then my people will live in a at  peaceful habitation,
And in secure dwellings and in undisturbed au  resting places;
19And it will av  hail when the aw  forest comes down,
And ax  the city will be utterly laid low.
20How ay  blessed will you be, you who sow beside all waters,
Lit send out the foot of the ox
let out freely the ox and the donkey.
