Isaiah - Chapter 1
  • 1. The vision concerning Judah and Jerusalem that Isaiah son of Amoz saw during the reigns of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, kings of Judah.
  • 2. Hear, O heavens! Listen, O earth! For the LORD has spoken: "I reared children and brought them up, but they have rebelled against me.
  • 3. The ox knows his master, the donkey his owner's manger, but Israel does not know, my people do not understand."
  • 4. Ah, sinful nation, a people loaded with guilt, a brood of evildoers, children given to corruption! They have forsaken the LORD; they have spurned the Holy One of Israel and turned their backs on him.
  • 5. Why should you be beaten anymore? Why do you persist in rebellion? Your whole head is injured, your whole heart afflicted.
  • 6. From the sole of your foot to the top of your head there is no soundness-- only wounds and welts and open sores, not cleansed or bandaged or soothed with oil.
  • 7. Your country is desolate, your cities burned with fire; your fields are being stripped by foreigners right before you, laid waste as when overthrown by strangers.
  • 8. The Daughter of Zion is left like a shelter in a vineyard, like a hut in a field of melons, like a city under siege.
  • 9. Unless the LORD Almighty had left us some survivors, we would have become like Sodom, we would have been like Gomorrah.
  • 10. Hear the word of the LORD, you rulers of Sodom; listen to the law of our God, you people of Gomorrah!
  • 11. The multitude of your sacrifices-- what are they to me? says the LORD. "I have more than enough of burnt offerings, of rams and the fat of fattened animals; I have no pleasure in the blood of bulls and lambs and goats.
  • 12. When you come to appear before me, who has asked this of you, this trampling of my courts?
  • 13. Stop bringing meaningless offerings! Your incense is detestable to me. New Moons, Sabbaths and convocations-- I cannot bear your evil assemblies.
  • 14. Your New Moon festivals and your appointed feasts my soul hates. They have become a burden to me; I am weary of bearing them.
  • 15. When you spread out your hands in prayer, I will hide my eyes from you; even if you offer many prayers, I will not listen. Your hands are full of blood;
  • 16. wash and make yourselves clean. Take your evil deeds out of my sight! Stop doing wrong,
  • 17. learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow.
  • 18. Come now, let us reason together, says the LORD. "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.
  • 19. If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the best from the land;
  • 20. but if you resist and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword." For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.
  • 21. See how the faithful city has become a harlot! She once was full of justice; righteousness used to dwell in her-- but now murderers!
  • 22. Your silver has become dross, your choice wine is diluted with water.
  • 23. Your rulers are rebels, companions of thieves; they all love bribes and chase after gifts. They do not defend the cause of the fatherless; the widow's case does not come before them.
  • 24. Therefore the Lord, the LORD Almighty, the Mighty One of Israel, declares: "Ah, I will get relief from my foes and avenge myself on my enemies.
  • 25. I will turn my hand against you; I will thoroughly purge away your dross and remove all your impurities.
  • 26. I will restore your judges as in days of old, your counselors as at the beginning. Afterward you will be called the City of Righteousness, the Faithful City."
  • 27. Zion will be redeemed with justice, her penitent ones with righteousness.
  • 28. But rebels and sinners will both be broken, and those who forsake the LORD will perish.
  • 29. You will be ashamed because of the sacred oaks in which you have delighted; you will be disgraced because of the gardens that you have chosen.
  • 30. You will be like an oak with fading leaves, like a garden without water.
  • 31. The mighty man will become tinder and his work a spark; both will burn together, with no one to quench the fire."
