Isaiah 27-31 New King James Version (NKJV)
Israel Will Be Restored
27 In that day the Lord with His severe sword, great and strong,
The Restoration of Israel
2 In that day sing to her,
6 Those who come He shall cause to take root in Jacob;
7 Has He struck [b]Israel as He struck those who struck him?
10 Yet the fortified city will be desolate,
12 And it shall come to pass in that day
13 So it shall be in that day:
Woe to Ephraim and Jerusalem
28 Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim,
5 In that day the Lord of hosts will be
7 But they also have erred through wine,
9 “Whom will he teach knowledge?
11 For with stammering lips and another tongue
14 Therefore hear the word of the Lord, you scornful men,
A Cornerstone in Zion
16 Therefore thus says the Lord God:
“Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation,
20 For the bed is too short to stretch out on,
Listen to the Teaching of God
23 Give ear and hear my voice,
27 For the black cummin is not threshed with a threshing sledge,
Woe to Jerusalem
29 “Woe to [k]Ariel, to Ariel, the city where David dwelt!
5 “Moreover the multitude of your foes
The Blindness of Disobedience
9 Pause and wonder!
11 The whole vision has become to you like the words of a [m]book that is sealed, which men deliver to one who is literate, saying, “Read this, please.”
And he says, “I cannot, for it is sealed.”
12 Then the book is delivered to one who [n]is illiterate, saying, “Read this, please.”
And he says, “I am not literate.”
13 Therefore the Lord said:
“Inasmuch as these people draw near with their mouths
15 Woe to those who seek deep to hide their counsel far from the Lord,
Future Recovery of Wisdom
17 Is it not yet a very little while
22 Therefore thus says the Lord, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob:
“Jacob shall not now be ashamed,
Futile Confidence in Egypt
30 “Woe to the rebellious children,” says the Lord,
6 The [q]burden against the beasts of the South.
Through a land of trouble and anguish,
A Rebellious People
8 Now go, write it before them on a tablet,
12 Therefore thus says the Holy One of Israel:
“Because you despise this word,
15 For thus says the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel:
“In returning and rest you shall be saved;
17 One thousand shall flee at the threat of one,
God Will Be Gracious
18 Therefore the Lord will wait, that He may be gracious to you;
19 For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem;
23 Then He will give the rain for your seed
Judgment on Assyria
27 Behold, the name of the Lord comes from afar,
29 You shall have a song
The Folly of Not Trusting God
31 Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help,
God Will Deliver Jerusalem
4 For thus the Lord has spoken to me:
“As a lion roars,
6 Return to Him against whom the children of Israel have deeply revolted. 7 For in that day every man shall throw away his idols of silver and his idols of gold—sin, which your own hands have made for yourselves.
8 “Then Assyria shall fall by a sword not of man,
