Isaiah 321Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness,
and princes shall rule in justice.
2A man shall be as a hiding place from the wind,
and a shelter from the storm,
as streams of water in a dry place,
as the shade of a large rock in a weary land.
3The eyes of those who see will not be dim,
and the ears of those who hear will listen.
4The heart of the rash will understand knowledge,
and the tongue of the stammerers will be ready to speak plainly.
5The fool will no longer be called noble,
nor the scoundrel be highly respected.
6For the fool will speak folly,
and his heart will work iniquity,
to practice profanity,
and to utter error against Jehovah,
To make empty the soul of the hungry,
and to cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.
7The ways of the scoundrel are evil.
He devises wicked devices to destroy the humble with lying words,
even when the needy speaks right.
8But the noble devises noble things;
and he will continue in noble things.
9Rise up, you women who are at ease! Hear my voice!
You careless daughters, give ear to my speech!
10For days beyond a year you will be troubled, you careless women;
for the vintage shall fail.
The harvest won't come.
11Tremble, you women who are at ease!
Be troubled, you careless ones!
Strip yourselves, make yourselves naked,
and put sackcloth on your waist.
12Beat your breasts for the pleasant fields,
for the fruitful vine.
13Thorns and briars will come up on my people's land;
yes, on all the houses of joy in the joyous city.
14For the palace will be forsaken.
The populous city will be deserted.
The hill and the watchtower will be for dens forever,
a delight for wild donkeys,
a pasture of flocks;
15Until the Spirit is poured on us from on high,
and the wilderness becomes a fruitful field,
and the fruitful field is considered a forest.
16Then justice will dwell in the wilderness;
and righteousness will remain in the fruitful field.
17The work of righteousness will be peace;
and the effect of righteousness, quietness and confidence forever.
18My people will abide in a peaceful habitation,
in safe dwellings,
and in quiet resting places.
19Though hail flattens the forest,
and the city is leveled completely.
20Blessed are you who sow beside all waters,
who send out the feet of the ox and the donkey.
