The Judgment of God1 Woe a to you, O destroyer,
While you were not destroyed;
And he b who is treacherous, while others did not deal treacherously with him.
As soon as you finish destroying c you will be destroyed;
As soon as you cease to deal treacherously, others will d deal treacherously with you.
2 O Lord e be gracious to us; we have f waited for You.
▼ Some versions read ourtheir ▼
▼ Lit arm, i strength every morning,
Our salvation also in the j time of distress.
3 At the sound of the tumult k peoples flee;
At the l lifting up of Yourself nations disperse.
4 Your spoil is gathered as the caterpillar gathers;
As locusts rushing about men rush about on it.
5 The Lord is m exalted, for He dwells on high;
He has n filled Zion with justice and righteousness.
6 And He will be the ▼
▼ Or faithfulness, p stability of your times,
A q wealth of salvation, wisdom and r knowledge;
The s fear of the Lord is his treasure.
7 Behold, their brave men cry in ▼
▼ Lit the outsidethe streets,
▼ Lit messengers, v ambassadors of peace weep bitterly.
8 The highways are desolate ▼
▼ Lit he who passes along the waythe x traveler has ceased,
He has y broken the covenant, he has despised the cities,
He has no regard for man.
9 z The land mourns and pines away,
aa Lebanon is shamed and withers;
ab Sharon is like a desert plain,
And Bashan and Carmel ▼
▼ Lit shake offlose their foliage.
10 “Now ad I will arise,” says the Lord,
“Now I will be exalted, now I will be lifted up.
11 “You have ae conceived ▼
▼ Lit dry grasschaff, you will give birth to stubble;
▼ So one ancient version; M.T. reads Your breath willMy ah breath will consume you like a fire.
12 “The peoples will be burned to lime,
ai Like cut thorns which are burned in the fire.
13 “You who are far away aj hear what I have done;
And you who are near ▼
▼ Lit knowacknowledge My might.”
14 al Sinners in Zion are terrified;
am Trembling has seized the godless.
“Who among us can live with an the consuming fire?
Who among us can live with ▼
▼ Lit everlastingcontinual ap burning?”
15 He who aq walks righteously and speaks with sincerity,
He who rejects ▼
▼ Lit gain of extortionersunjust gain
And shakes his hands so that they hold no bribe;
He who stops his ears from hearing about bloodshed
And as shuts his eyes from looking upon evil;
16 He will dwell on the heights,
at His refuge will be the ▼
▼ Lit stronghold of rockimpregnable rock;
av His bread will be given him,
His water will be sure.
17 Your eyes will see aw the King in His beauty;
They will behold ax a far-distant land.
18 Your heart will meditate on ay terror:
“Where is az he who counts?
Where is he who weighs?
Where is he who counts the towers?”
19 You will no longer see a fierce people,
A people of ▼
▼ Lit deepness of lip, bb unintelligible speech ▼
▼ Lit from hearingwhich no one comprehends,
Of a stammering tongue ▼
▼ Lit there is no understandingwhich no one understands.
20 be Look upon Zion, the city of our appointed feasts;
Your eyes will see Jerusalem, an bf undisturbed habitation,
bg A tent which will not be folded;
Its stakes will never be pulled up,
Nor any of its cords be torn apart.
21 But there the majestic One, the Lord, will be for us
A place of bh rivers and wide canals
On which no boat with oars will go,
And on which no mighty ship will pass—
22 For the Lord is our bi judge,
The Lord is bj our lawgiver,
The Lord is bk our king;
bl He will save us—
23 Your tackle hangs slack;
It cannot hold the base of its mast firmly,
Nor spread out the sail.
Then the bm prey of an abundant spoil will be divided;
bn The lame will take the plunder.
24 And no resident will say, “I am bo sick”;
The people who dwell ▼
▼ Lit in itthere will be bq forgiven their iniquity.
