Isaiah 22-25 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
The Valley of Vision
22 The [a]oracle concerning the valley of vision.
What is the matter with you now, that you have all gone up to the housetops?
12 Therefore in that day the Lord [m]God of hosts called you to weeping, to wailing,
15 Thus says the Lord [q]God of hosts,
“Come, go to this steward,
24 So they will hang on him all the glory of his father’s house, offspring and [u]issue, all the least of vessels, from bowls to all the jars. 25 In that day,” declares the Lord of hosts, “the peg driven in a firm place will give way; it will even break off and fall, and the load hanging on it will be cut off, for the Lord has spoken.”
The Fall of Tyre
23 The [v]oracle concerning Tyre.
Wail, O ships of Tarshish,
8 Who has planned this against Tyre, the bestower of crowns,
12 He has said, “You shall exult no more, O crushed virgin daughter of Sidon.
13 Behold, the land of the Chaldeans—this is the people which was not; Assyria appointed it for desert creatures—they erected their siege towers, they stripped its palaces, they made it a ruin.
14 Wail, O ships of Tarshish,
15 Now in that day Tyre will be forgotten for seventy years like the days of one king. At the end of seventy years it will happen to Tyre as in the song of the harlot:
16 Take your harp, walk about the city,
17 It will come about at the end of seventy years that the Lord will visit Tyre. Then she will go back to her harlot’s wages and will play the harlot with all the kingdoms [ae]on the face of the earth. 18 Her gain and her harlot’s wages will be set apart to the Lord; it will not be stored up or hoarded, but her gain will become sufficient food and choice attire for those who dwell in the presence of the Lord.
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 [af]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.
7 The new wine mourns,
Song of Praise for God’s Favor
25 O Lord, You are my God;
6 The Lord of hosts will prepare a [av]lavish banquet for all peoples on this mountain;
