Isaiah 5:13-17 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

13 Therefore my people go into exile
    for want of knowledge;
their honored men are dying of hunger,
    and their multitude is parched with thirst.
14 Therefore Sheol has enlarged its appetite
    and opened its mouth beyond measure,
and the nobility of Jerusalem[a] and her multitude go down,
    her throng and he who exults in her.
15 Man is bowed down, and men are brought low,
    and the eyes of the haughty are humbled.
16 But the Lord of hosts is exalted in justice,
    and the Holy God shows himself holy in righteousness.
17 Then shall the lambs graze as in their pasture,
    fatlings and kids[b] shall feed among the ruins.

Isaiah 5:24-25 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

Foreign Invasion Predicted

24 Therefore, as the tongue of fire devours the stubble,
    and as dry grass sinks down in the flame,
so their root will be as rottenness,
    and their blossom go up like dust;
for they have rejected the law of the Lord of hosts,
    and have despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
25 Therefore the anger of the Lord was kindled against his people,
    and he stretched out his hand against them and smote them,
    and the mountains quaked;
and their corpses were as refuse
    in the midst of the streets.
For all this his anger is not turned away
    and his hand is stretched out still.
