1 ¶ Woe1945 to the rebellious5637 children,1121 saith5002 the LORD,3068 that take6213 counsel,6098 but not of me; and that cover5258 with a covering,4541 but not of my spirit,7307 that they may add5595 sin2403 to sin:2403 2 That walk1980 to go down3381 into Egypt,4714 and have not asked7592 at my mouth;6310 to strengthen5810 themselves in the strength4581 of Pharaoh,6547 and to trust2620 in the shadow6738 of Egypt!4714 3 Therefore shall the strength4581 of Pharaoh6547 be your shame,1322 and the trust2622 in the shadow6738 of Egypt4714 your confusion.3639 4 For his princes8269 were at Zoan,6814 and his ambassadors4397 came5060 to Hanes.2609 5 They were all ashamed3001 of a people5971 that could not profit3276 them, nor be an help5828 nor profit,3276 but a shame,1322 and also a reproach.2781 6 ¶ The burden4853 of the beasts929 of the south:5045 into the land776 of trouble6869 and anguish,6695 from whence come the young3833 and old lion,3918 the viper660 and fiery8314 2794 flying5774 serpent,8314 they will carry5375 their riches2428 upon the shoulders3802 of young asses,5895 and their treasures214 upon the bunches1707 of camels,1581 to a people5971 that shall not profit3276 them. 7 For the Egyptians4714 shall help5826 in vain,1892 and to no purpose:7385 therefore have I cried7121 {Or, to her} concerning this,2063 Their1992 strength7293 is to sit still.7674 8 ¶ Now go,935 write3789 it before them in a table,3871 and note2710 it in a book,5612 that it may be for {Heb. the latter day} the time3117 to come314 for5704 ever5703 and ever:5769 9 That this is a rebellious4805 people,5971 lying3586 children,1121 children1121 that will14 not hear8085 the law8451 of the LORD:3068 10 Which say559 to the seers,7200 See7200 not; and to the prophets,2374 Prophesy2372 not unto us right things,5229 speak1696 unto us smooth things,2513 prophesy2372 deceits:4123 11 Get you out5493 of the way,1870 turn aside5186 out of the path,734 cause the Holy One6918 of Israel3478 to cease7673 from before6440 us. 12 Wherefore thus saith559 the Holy One6918 of Israel,3478 Because ye despise3988 this word,1697 and trust982 in {Or, fraud} oppression6233 and perverseness,3868 and stay8172 thereon: 13 Therefore this iniquity5771 shall be to you as a breach6556 ready to fall,5307 swelling out1158 in a high7682 wall,2346 whose breaking7667 cometh935 suddenly6597 at an instant.6621 14 And he shall break7665 it as the breaking7667 of the potters'3335 {Heb. the bottle of potters} vessel5035 that is broken in pieces;3807 he shall not spare:2550 so that there shall not be found4672 in the bursting4386 of it a sherd2789 to take2846 fire784 from the hearth,3344 or to take2834 water4325 withal out of the pit.1360 15 For thus saith559 the Lord136 GOD,3069 the Holy One6918 of Israel;3478 In returning7729 and rest5183 shall ye be saved;3467 in quietness8252 and in confidence985 shall be your strength:1369 and ye would14 not. 16 But ye said,559 No; for we will flee5127 upon horses;5483 therefore shall ye flee:5127 and, We will ride7392 upon the swift;7031 therefore shall they that pursue7291 you be swift.7043 17 One259 thousand505 shall flee at6440 the rebuke1606 of one;259 at6440 the rebuke1606 of five2568 shall ye flee:5127 till ye be left3498 as {Or, a tree bereft of branches, or boughs, or a mast} a beacon8650 upon the top7218 of a mountain,2022 and as an ensign5251 on an hill.1389 18 ¶ And therefore will the LORD3068 wait,2442 that he may be gracious2603 unto you, and therefore will he be exalted,7311 that he may have mercy7355 upon you: for the LORD3068 is a God430 of judgment:4941 blessed835 are all they that wait2442 for him. 19 For the people5971 shall dwell3427 in Zion6726 at Jerusalem:3389 thou shalt weep1058 no more:1058 he will be very2603 gracious2603 unto thee at the voice6963 of thy cry;2199 when he shall hear8085 it, he will answer6030 thee. 20 And though the Lord136 give5414 you the bread3899 of adversity,6862 and the water4325 of {Or, oppression} affliction,3906 yet shall not thy teachers3384 be removed into a corner3670 any more, but thine eyes5869 shall see7200 thy teachers:3384 21 And thine ears241 shall hear8085 a word1697 behind310 thee, saying,559 This is the way,1870 walk ye in it,3212 when ye turn to the right hand,541 and when ye turn to the left.8041 22 Ye shall defile2930 also the covering6826 of {Heb. the graven images of thy silver} thy graven images6456 of silver,3701 and the ornament642 of thy molten images4541 of gold:2091 thou shalt {Heb. scatter} cast them away2219 as a menstruous cloth;1739 thou shalt say559 unto it, Get thee hence.3318 23 Then shall he give5414 the rain4306 of thy seed,2233 that thou shalt sow2232 the ground127 withal; and bread3899 of the increase8393 of the earth,127 and it shall be fat1879 and plenteous:8082 in that day3117 shall thy cattle4735 feed7462 in large7337 pastures.3733 24 The oxen504 likewise and the young asses5895 that ear5647 the ground127 shall eat398 {Or, savoury. Heb. leavened} clean2548 provender,1098 which hath been winnowed2219 with the shovel7371 and with the fan.4214 25 And there shall be upon every {Heb. lifted up} high1364 mountain,2022 and upon every high5375 hill,1389 rivers6388 and streams2988 of waters4325 in the day3117 of the great7227 slaughter,2027 when the towers4026 fall.5307 26 Moreover the light216 of the moon3842 shall be as the light216 of the sun,2535 and the light216 of the sun2535 shall be sevenfold,7659 as the light216 of seven7651 days,3117 in the day3117 that the LORD3068 bindeth up2280 the breach7667 of his people,5971 and healeth7495 the stroke4273 of their wound.4347 27 ¶ Behold, the name8034 of the LORD3068 cometh935 from far,4801 burning1197 with his anger,639 {Or, and the grievousness of flame} and the burden4858 thereof is {Heb. heaviness} heavy:3514 his lips8193 are full4390 of indignation,2195 and his tongue3956 as a devouring398 fire:784 28 And his breath,7307 as an overflowing7857 stream,5158 shall reach to the midst2673 of the neck,6677 to sift5130 the nations1471 with the sieve5299 of vanity:7723 and there shall be a bridle7448 in the jaws3895 of the people,5971 causing them to err.8582 29 Ye shall have a song,7892 as in the night3915 when a holy6942 2794 solemnity2282 is kept;6942 and gladness8057 of heart,3824 as when one goeth1980 with a pipe2485 to come935 into the mountain2022 of the LORD,3068 to the {Heb. rock} mighty One6697 of Israel.3478 30 And the LORD3068 shall cause {Heb. the glory of his voice} his glorious1935 voice6963 to be heard,8085 and shall shew7200 the lighting down5183 of his arm,2220 with the indignation2197 of his anger,639 and with the flame3851 of a devouring398 fire,784 with scattering,5311 and tempest,2230 and hailstones.68 1259 31 For through the voice6963 of the LORD3068 shall the Assyrian804 be beaten down,2865 which smote5221 with a rod.7626 32 And {Heb. every passing of the rod founded} in every place3605 where the grounded4145 staff4294 shall pass,4569 which the LORD3068 shall {Heb. cause to rest upon him} lay5117 upon him, it shall be with tabrets8596 and harps:3658 and in battles4421 of shaking8573 will he fight3898 {Or, against them} with it. 33 For Tophet8613 is ordained6186 {Heb. from yesterday} of old;865 yea, for the king4428 it is prepared;3559 he hath made it deep6009 and large:7337 the pile4071 thereof is fire784 and much7235 wood;6086 the breath5397 of the LORD,3068 like a stream5158 of brimstone,1614 doth kindle1197 it.
