23-1:3††††† The oxe knoweth his owner, and the asse his masters cribbe: but Israel doeth not know, my people doeth not consider.

23-1:4††††† Ah sinnefull nation, a people laden with iniquitie, a seede of euill doers, children that are corrupters: they haue forsaken the Lord, they haue prouoked the Holy one of Israel vnto anger, they are gone away backward.

23-1:5††††† Why should yee be stricken any more? yee will reuolt more and more: the whole head is sicke, and the whole heart faint.

23-1:6††††† From the sole of the foote, euen vnto the head, there is no soundnesse in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they haue not beene closed, neither bound vp, neither mollified with oyntment.

23-1:7††††† Your countrey is desolate, your cities are burnt with fire: your land, strangers deuoure it in your presence, and it is desolate as ouerthrowen by strangers.

23-1:8††††† And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged citie.

23-1:11†††† To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices vnto me, sayth the Lord? I am full of the burnt offerings of rammes, and the fat of fedde beasts, and I delight not in the blood of bullockes, or of lambes, or of hee goates.

23-1:12†††† When ye come to appeare before mee, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts?

23-1:13†††† Bring no more vaine oblations, incense is an abomination vnto me: the new Moones, and Sabbaths, the calling of assemblies I cannot away with; it is iniquitie, euen the solemne meeting.

23-1:14†††† Your new Moones, and your appointed Feasts my soule hateth: they are a trouble vnto me, I am weary to beare them.

23-1:15†††† And when ye spread foorth your handes, I will hide mine eyes from you; yea, when yee make many prayers I will not heare: your hands are full of blood.

23-1:16†††† Wash yee, make you cleane, put away the euill of your doings from before mine eyes, cease to doe euill,

23-1:24†††† Therefore, saith the Lord, the Lord of hostes, the mighty one of Israel; Ah, I will ease me of mine aduersaries, and auenge me of mine enemies.

23-1:25†††† And I will turne my hand vpon thee, and purely purge away thy drosse, and take away all thy tinne.

23-1:26†††† And I will restore thy iudges as at the first, and thy counsellers as at the beginning: afterward thou shalt be called the citie of righteousnesse, the faithfull citie.

23-1:27†††† Zion shall be redeemed with iudgement, and her conuerts with righteousnesse.

23-2:2††††† And it shall come to passe in the last dayes, that the mountaine of the Lords house shall be established in the top of the mountaines, and shall be exalted aboue the hilles; and all nations shall flow vnto it.

23-2:3††††† And many people shall goe & say; Come yee and let vs go vp to the mountaine of the Lord, to the house of the God of Iacob, and he will teach vs of his wayes, and we will walke in his pathes: for out of Zion shall goe forth the lawe, and the word of the Lord from Ierusalem.

23-2:4††††† And hee shall iudge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beate their swords into plow-shares, and their speares into pruning hookes: nation shall not lift vp sword against nation, neither shall they learne warre any more.

23-2:5††††† O house of Iacob, come yee, and let vs walke in the light of the Lord.

23-2:6††††† Therefore thou hast forsaken thy people the house of Iacob; because they be replenished from the East, and are soothsayers like the Philistines, and they please themselues in the children of strangers.

23-2:8††††† Their land also is full of idoles: they worship the worke of their owne hands, that which their owne fingers haue made.

23-2:9††††† And the meane man boweth downe, and the great man humbleth himselfe; therefore forgiue them not.

23-2:10†††† Enter into the rocke, and hide thee in the dust, for feare of the Lord, and for the glory of his Maiestie.

23-2:11†††† The loftie lookes of man shalbe humbled, and the hautines of men shalbe bowed downe: and the Lord alone shalbe exalted in that day.

23-2:12†††† For the day of the Lord of hostes shall bee vpon euery one that is proud and loftie, and vpon euery one that is lifted vp, and he shalbe brought low;

23-2:13†††† And vpon all the Cedars of Lebanon, that are high and lifted vp; and vpon all the okes of Bashan,

23-2:14†††† And vpon all the high mountaines, and vpon all the hilles that are lifted vp,

23-2:15†††† And vpon euery high tower, and vpon euery fenced wall,

23-2:16†††† And vpon all the ships of Tarshish, and vpon all pleasant pictures.

23-2:17†††† And the loftinesse of man shall be bowed downe, and the hautinesse of men shalbe made low: and the Lord alone shalbe exalted in that day.

23-2:18†††† And the idoles hee shall vtterly abolish.

23-2:19†††† And they shall goe into the holes of the rocks, and into the caues of the earth for feare of the Lord, and for the glory of his Maiestie; when hee ariseth to shake terribly the earth.

23-2:20†††† In that day a man shall cast his idoles of siluer, and his idoles of golde which they made each one for himselfe to worship, to the moules and to the battes:

23-2:21†††† To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rockes, for feare of the Lord, and for the glorie of his Maiestie; when hee ariseth to shake terribly the earth.

23-2:22†††† Cease ye from man whose breath is in his nostrels: for wherein is hee to be accounted of?

23-5:4††††† What could haue beene done more to my Uineyard, that I haue not done in it? Wherefore when I looked that it should bring foorth grapes, brought it foorth wilde grapes?

23-5:7††††† For the Uineyard of the Lord of hostes is the house of Israel, and the men of Iudah his pleasant plant: and he looked for iudgement, but beholde oppression; for righteousnesse, but behold a crie.

23-5:12†††† And the harpe and the viole, the tabret and pipe, and wine are in their feasts: but they regard not the worke of the Lord, neither consider the operation of his hands.

23-5:14†††† Therefore hell hath enlarged her selfe, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pompe, and hee that reioyceth, shall descend into it.

23-5:15†††† And the meane man shall bee brought downe, and the mightie man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the loftie shall be humbled.

23-5:20†††† Woe vnto them that call euill good, and good euill, that put darkenes for light, and light for darkenesse, that put bitter for sweete, and sweete for bitter.

23-5:23†††† Which iustifie the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousnes of the righteous from him.

23-5:24†††† Therfore as the fire deuoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaffe, so their root shall be rottennes, and their blossome shall goe vp as dust: because they haue cast away the Lawe of the Lord of hosts, and despised the worde of the Holy One of Israel.

23-5:25†††† Therefore is the anger of the Lord kindled against his people, and he hath stretched foorth his hande against them, and hath smitten them: and the hilles did tremble, and their carkeises were torne in the midst of the streets: for all this, his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

23-5:26†††† And he will lift vp an ensigne to the nations from farre, and wil hisse vnto them from the end of the earth: and behold, they shall come with speed swiftly.

23-5:27†††† None shalbe weary, nor stumble amongst them: none shall slumber nor sleepe, neither shall the girdle of their loynes be loosed, nor the latchet of their shooes be broken.

23-5:28†††† Whose arrowes are sharpe, and all their bowes bent, their horses hoofs shall bee counted like flint, and their wheeles like a whirlewind.

23-5:29†††† Their roaring shalbe like a lyon, they shall roare like yong lions: yea they shal roare and lay hold of the pray, and shall carie it away safe, and none shall deliuer it.

23-5:30†††† And in that day they shall roare against them, like the roaring of the sea: and if one looke vnto the land, behold darkenesse and sorrow, and the light is darkened in the heauens therof.

23-6:4††††† And the posts of the doore moued at the voyce of him that cryed, and the house was filled with smoke.

23-6:5††††† Then sayd I; woe is me; for I am vndone, because I am a man of vncleane lippes, and I dwell in the midst of a people of vncleane lippes: for mine eyes haue seene the king, the Lord of hostes.

23-6:10†††† Make the heart of this people fat, and make their eares heauy, and shut their eyes: lest they see with their eyes, and heare with their eares, and vnderstand with their heart, and conuert and be healed.

23-6:12†††† And the Lord haue remoued men farre away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land.

23-6:13†††† But yet in it shalbe a tenth, and it shall returne, and shall be eaten: as a Teyle tree, and as an Oke whose substance is in them, when they cast their leaues: so the holy seede shall be the substance thereof.

Chapter 7:25 Verses

23 Isaiah

(K.J.V. 1611) .

23-7:1††††† And it came to passe in the dayes of Ahaz the sonne of Iotham, the sonne of Uzziah king of Iudah, that Rezin the king of Syria, and Pekah, the sonne of Remaliah king of Israel, went vp towards Ierusalem to warre against it, but could not preuaile against it.

23-7:2††††† And it was told the house of Dauid, saying, Syria is confederate with Ephraim: and his heart was moued, and the heart of his people as the trees of the wood are mooued with the wind.

23-7:3††††† Then sayd the Lord vnto Isaiah; Goe forth now to meete Ahaz, thou, & Shear-iashub thy sonne, at the end of the conduit of the vpper poole in the high way of the fullers field.

23-7:4††††† And say vnto him; Take heede and be quiet: feare not, neither be faint hearted for the two tailes of these smoking firebrands, for the fierce anger of Rezin with Syria, and of the sonne of Remaliah.

23-7:5††††† Because Syria, Ephraim, and the sonne of Remaliah haue taken euill counsell against thee, saying;

23-7:6††††† Let vs goe vp against Iudah and vexe it, and let vs make a breach therein for vs, and set a king in the midst of it, euen the sonne of Tabeal.

23-7:7††††† Thus saith the Lord God; It shall not stand, neither shall it come to passe.

23-7:8††††† For the head of Syria is Damascus, and the head of Damascus is Rezin, and within threescore and fiue yeeres shall Ephraim be broken, that it be not a people.

23-7:9††††† And the head of Ephraim is Samaria, and the head of Samaria is Remaliahs sonne: if yee will not beleeue, surely yee shall not be established.

23-7:10†††† Moreouer the Lord spake againe vnto Ahaz, saying;

23-7:11†††† Aske thee a signe of the Lord thy God; aske it either in the depth, or in the height aboue.

23-7:12†††† But Ahaz sayd, I will not aske, neither will I tempt the Lord.

23-7:13†††† And he sayd; Heare yee now, O house of Dauid; Is it a small thing for you to wearie men, but will yee wearie my God also?

23-7:14†††† Therefore the Lord himselfe shal giue you a signe: Behold, a Uirgine shall conceiue and beare a Sonne, and shall call his name Immanuel.

23-7:15†††† Butter and hony shall he eat, that hee may know to refuse the euill, and choose the good.

23-7:16†††† For before the childe shall know to refuse the euill and choose the good; the land that thou abhorrest, shalbe forsaken of both her kings.

23-7:17†††† The Lord shall bring vpon thee and vpon thy people, and vpon thy fathers house, dayes that haue not come, from the day that Ephraim departed from Iudah; euen the King of Assyria.

23-7:18†††† And it shall come to passe in that day, that the Lord shall hisse for the flie, that is in the vttermost part of the riuers of Egypt, and for the Bee that is in the land of Assyria.

23-7:19†††† And they shall come, and shall rest all of them in the desolate valleys, and in the holes of the rockes, and vpon all thornes, and vpon all bushes.
