Isaiah 331599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
33 1 The destruction of them by whom God hath punished his Church.
1 Woe to thee that [a]spoilest, and wast not spoiled: and doest wickedly, and they did not wickedly against thee: when thou shalt [b]cease to spoil, thou shalt be spoiled: when thou shalt make an end of doing wickedly, [c]they shall do wickedly against thee.
5 The Lord is exalted: for he dwelleth on high: he hath filled Zion with judgment and justice.
6 And there shall be stability of [j]the times, strength, salvation, wisdom, and knowledge: for the fear of the Lord shall be his treasure.
8 The [m]paths are waste: the wayfaring man ceaseth: he hath broken the covenant: he hath contemned the cities: he regardeth no man.
9 The earth mourneth and fainteth: Lebanon is ashamed, and hewn down: [n]Sharon is like a wilderness, and Bashan is shaken and Carmel.
10 Now will I [o]arise, saith the Lord: now will I be exalted, now will I lift up myself.
11 [p]Ye shall conceive chaff, and bring forth stubble: the fire of your breath shall devour you.
12 And the people shall be as the burning of lime: and as the thorns cut up, shall they be burnt in the fire.
13 Hear, ye that are [q]far off, what I have done, and ye that are near, know my power.
14 The [r]sinners in Zion are afraid: a fear is come upon the hypocrites: who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with the everlasting burnings?
15 He that walketh in justice, and speaketh righteous things, refusing gain of oppression, shaking his hands from taking of gifts, stopping his ears from hearing of blood, and shutting his eyes from seeing evil,
16 He shall dwell on [s]high: his defense shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him, and his waters shall be sure.
18 Thine heart [v]shall meditate fear, Where is the scribe? where is the receiver? where is he that counted the towers?
19 Thou shalt not see a fierce people, a people of a dark speech, that thou canst not perceive, and of a stammering tongue that thou canst not understand.
20 Look upon Zion the city of our solemn feasts: thine eyes shall see Jerusalem a quiet habitation, a tabernacle that cannot be removed: and the stakes thereof can never be taken away, neither shall any of the cords thereof be broken.
21 For surely there the mighty Lord will be unto us, as a place [w]of floods, and broad rivers, whereby shall pass no ship with oars, neither shall great ship pass thereby.
22 For the Lord is our Judge, the Lord is our lawgiver: the Lord is our King, he will save us.
24 And none inhabitant shall say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein, shall have their iniquity forgiven.
