Isaiah 23 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
The Fall of Tyre
23 The [a]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 [j]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.
Isaiah 24 New 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.
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 [b]lavish banquet for all peoples on this mountain;
Isaiah 26 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
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
Isaiah 27 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
The Deliverance of Israel
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.
