Isaiah 24-27New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Judgment on the Earth
24 Behold, the Lord lays the earth waste, devastates it, distorts its surface and scatters its inhabitants. 2 And the people will be like the priest, the servant like his master, the maid like her mistress, the buyer like the seller, the lender like the borrower, the creditor like the debtor. 3 The earth will be completely laid waste and completely despoiled, for the Lord has spoken this word. 4 The earth mourns and withers, the world fades and withers, the exalted of the people of the earth fade away. 5 The earth is also polluted [a]by its inhabitants, for they transgressed laws, violated statutes, broke the everlasting covenant. 6 Therefore, a curse devours the earth, and those who live in it are held guilty. Therefore, the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men are left.

6 The Lord of hosts will prepare a [q]lavish banquet for all peoples on this mountain;
Song of Trust in God’s Protection
26 In that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah:
“We have a strong city;
7 The way of the righteous is smooth;
11 O Lord, Your hand is lifted up yet they do not see it.
20 Come, my people, enter into your rooms
The Deliverance of Israel
27 In that day the Lord will punish [ap]Leviathan the fleeing serpent,
2 In that day,
7 Like the striking of Him who has struck them, has He struck them?
12 In that day the Lord will start His threshing from the flowing stream of the Euphrates to the brook of Egypt, and you will be gathered up one by one, O sons of Israel. 13 It will come about also in that day that a great trumpet will be blown, and those who were perishing in the land of Assyria and who were scattered in the land of Egypt will come and worship the Lord in the holy mountain at Jerusalem.
Isaiah 29New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Jerusalem Is Warned
29 Woe, O [a]Ariel, [b]Ariel the city where David once camped!
5 But the multitude of your [f]enemies will become like fine dust,
9 Be delayed and wait,
11 The entire vision will be to you like the words of a sealed [k]book, which when they give it to the one who [l]is literate, saying, “Please read this,” he will say, “I cannot, for it is sealed.” 12 Then the [m]book will be given to the one who [n]is illiterate, saying, “Please read this.” And he will say, “I [o]cannot read.”
13 Then the Lord said,
“Because this people draw near with their [p]words
15 Woe to those who deeply hide their [u]plans from the Lord,
Blessing after Discipline

“Jacob shall not now be ashamed, nor shall his face now turn pale;
