Isaías

1. The vision of Isaiah the son of Amos, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, Hezekiah, kings of Judah.

2. Hear, {ye} heavens, and give ear, {thou} earth! for Jehovah hath spoken: I have nourished and brought up children; and they have rebelled against me.

3. The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master's crib; Israel doth not know, my people hath no intelligence.

4. Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that corrupt themselves! They have forsaken Jehovah; they have despised the Holy One of Israel; they are turned away backward.

5. Why should ye be smitten any more? ye will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.

6. From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in him; wounds, and weals, and open sores: they have not been dressed, nor bound up, nor mollified with oil.

7. Your country is desolate; your cities are burned with fire; your land, strangers eat it up in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.

8. And the daughter of Zion is left, as a booth in a vineyard, as a night-lodge in a cucumber-garden, as a besieged city.

9. Unless Jehovah of hosts had left us a very small residue, we should have been as Sodom, we should have been like unto Gomorrah.

10. Hear the word of Jehovah, rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, people of Gomorrah!

11. To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith Jehovah. I am sated with burnt-offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and in the blood of bullocks, and of lambs, and of he-goats I take no pleasure.

12. When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this from your hand-to tread my courts?

13. Bring no more vain oblations! Incense is an abomination unto me, -new moon and sabbath, the calling of convocations-wickedness and the solemn meeting I cannot bear.

14. Your new moons and your set feasts my soul hateth: they are a burden to me; I am wearied of bearing {them}.

15. And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you; yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.

16. Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; -cease to do evil,

17. learn to do well: seek judgment, gladden the oppressed, do justice to the fatherless, plead for the widow.

18. Come now, let us reason together, saith Jehovah: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

19. If ye be willing and hearken, ye shall eat the good of the land;

20. but if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of Jehovah hath spoken.

21. How is the faithful city become a harlot! It was full of judgment; righteousness used to lodge in it, but now murderers.

22. Thy silver is become dross, thy wine is mixed with water:

23. thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves; every one loveth presents, and hunteth after rewards; they judge not the fatherless, and the cause of the widow cometh not unto them.

24. Therefore saith the Lord, Jehovah of hosts, the Mighty One of Israel: Ah! I will ease me of mine adversaries, and avenge me of mine enemies.

25. And I will turn my hand upon thee, and will thoroughly purge away thy dross, and take away all thine alloy;

26. and I will restore thy judges as at the first, and thy counsellors as at the beginning. Afterwards thou shalt be called, Town of righteousness, Faithful city.

27. Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and they that return of her with righteousness.

28. But the ruin of the transgressors and of the sinners {shall be} together; and they that forsake Jehovah shall be consumed.

29. For they shall be ashamed of the terebinths that ye have desired, and ye shall blush for the gardens that ye have chosen.

30. For ye shall be as a terebinth whose leaf fadeth, and as a garden that hath no water.

31. And the strong shall be for tow, and his work a spark; and they shall both burn together, and there shall be none to quench {them}.

1. The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.

2. And it shall come to pass in the end of days, {that} the mountain of Jehovah's house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be lifted up above the hills; and all the nations shall flow unto it.

3. And many peoples shall go and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of Jehovah, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths. For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and Jehovah's word from Jerusalem.

4. And he shall judge among the nations, and shall reprove many peoples; and they shall forge their swords into ploughshares, and their spears into pruning-knives: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

5. House of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of Jehovah.

6. For thou hast cast off thy people, the house of Jacob, because they are filled {with what comes} from the east, and use auguries like the Philistines, and ally themselves with the children of foreigners.

7. And their land is full of silver and gold, and there is no end of their treasures: their land also is full of horses, and there is no end of their chariots.

8. And their land is full of idols; they bow themselves down to the work of their own hands, to that which their fingers have made.

9. And the mean man shall be bowed down, and the great man shall be brought low: and do not thou forgive them!

10. Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, from before the terror of Jehovah, and from the glory of his majesty.

11. The lofty eyes of man shall be brought low, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and Jehovah alone shall be exalted in that day.

12. For there shall be a day of Jehovah of hosts upon everything proud and lofty, and upon everything lifted up, and it shall be brought low;

13. and upon all the cedars of Lebanon, high and lifted up, and upon all the oaks of Bashan;

14. and upon all the lofty mountains, and upon all the hills that are lifted up;

15. and upon every high tower, and upon every fenced wall;

16. and upon all the ships of Tarshish, and upon all pleasant works of art.

17. And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be brought low; and Jehovah alone shall be exalted in that day:

18. and the idols shall utterly pass away.

19. And they shall go into the caves of the rocks, and into the holes of the earth, from before the terror of Jehovah, and from the glory of his majesty, when he shall arise to terrify the earth.

20. In that day men shall cast away their idols of silver and their idols of gold, which they made {each} for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats;

21. to go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the fissures of the cliffs, from before the terror of Jehovah, and from the glory of his majesty, when he shall arise to terrify the earth.

22. Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils; for what account is to be made of him?

1. For behold, the Lord, Jehovah of hosts, will take away from Jerusalem and from Judah stay and staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water,

2. the mighty man and the man of war, the judge and the prophet, and the diviner and the elder,

3. the captain of fifty, and the honourable man, and the counsellor, and the clever among artificers, and the one versed in enchantments.

4. And I will appoint youths as their princes, and children shall rule over them.

5. And the people shall be oppressed one by the other, and each by his neighbour; the child will be insolent against the elder, and the base against the honourable.

6. When a man shall take hold of his brother, in his father's house, {and shall say:} Thou hast clothing; be our chief, and let this ruin be under thy hand;

7. he will lift up {his hand} in that day, saying, I cannot be a healer, and in my house there is neither bread nor clothing; ye shall not make me a chief of the people.

8. For Jerusalem stumbleth and Judah falleth, because their tongue and their doings are against Jehovah, to provoke the eyes of his glory.

9. The look of their face doth witness against them, and they declare their sin as Sodom: they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have brought evil upon themselves.

10. Say ye of the righteous that it shall be well {with him}, for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.

11. Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill {with him}, because the desert of his hands shall be rendered unto him.

12. {As for} my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. My people! they that guide thee mislead {thee}, and destroy the way of thy paths.

13. Jehovah setteth himself to plead, and standeth to judge the peoples.

14. Jehovah will enter into judgment with the elders of his people and their princes, {saying:} It is ye that have eaten up the vineyard: the spoil of the poor is in your houses.

15. What mean ye that ye crush my people, and grind the faces of the afflicted? saith the Lord, Jehovah of hosts.

16. And Jehovah said, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched-out neck and wanton eyes, and go along mincing, and making a tinkling with their feet;

17. therefore the Lord will make bald the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and Jehovah will lay bare their secret parts.

18. In that day the Lord will take away the ornament of anklets, and the little suns and crescents,

19. the pearl-drops, and the bracelets, and the veils,

20. the head-dresses, and the stepping chains, and the girdles, and the scent-boxes, and the amulets;

21. the finger-rings, and the nose-rings;

22. the festival-robes, and the tunics, and the mantles, and the wallets;

23. the mirrors, and the fine linen bodices, and the turbans, and the flowing veils.

24. And it shall come to pass, instead of perfume there shall be rottenness; and instead of a girdle, a rope; and instead of well-set hair, baldness; and instead of a robe of display, a girding of sackcloth; brand instead of beauty.

25. Thy men shall fall by the sword, and thy mighty in the fight;

26. and her gates shall lament and mourn; and, stripped, she shall sit upon the ground.

1. And seven women shall take hold of one man in that day, saying, Our own bread will we eat, and with our own garments will we be clothed; only let us be called by thy name; -take away our reproach!

2. In that day there shall be a sprout of Jehovah for beauty and glory, and the fruit of the earth for excellency and for ornament for those that are escaped of Israel.

3. And it shall come to pass that he who remaineth in Zion, and he that is left in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, -every one that is written among the living in Jerusalem;

4. when the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have scoured out the blood of Jerusalem from its midst, by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning.

5. And Jehovah will create over every dwelling-place of mount Zion, and over its convocations, a cloud by day and a smoke, and the brightness of a flame of fire by night: for over all the glory shall be a covering.

6. And there shall be a tabernacle for shade by day from the heat, and for a shelter and for a covert from storm and from rain.

1. I will sing to my well-beloved a song of my beloved touching his vineyard: My well-beloved had a vineyard upon a fruitful hill.

2. And he dug it, and gathered out the stones thereof, and planted it with the choicest vine; and he built a tower in the midst of it, and also hewed out a winepress therein; and he looked that it should bring forth grapes, but it brought forth wild grapes.

3. And now, inhabitants of Jerusalem and men of Judah, judge, I pray you, between me and my vineyard.

4. What was there yet to do to my vineyard that I have not done in it? Wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild grapes? -

5. And now, let me tell you what I am about to do to my vineyard: I will take away its hedge, and it shall be eaten up; I will break down its wall, and it shall be trodden under foot;

6. and I will make it a waste-it shall not be pruned nor cultivated, but there shall come up briars and thorns; and I will command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it.

7. For the vineyard of Jehovah of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah the plant of his delight: and he looked for justice, and behold, blood-shedding; for righteousness, and behold, a cry.

8. Woe unto them that add house to house, that join field to field, until there is no more room, and that ye dwell yourselves alone in the midst of the land!

9. In mine ears Jehovah of hosts {hath said}, Many houses shall assuredly become a desolation, great and excellent ones, without inhabitant.

10. Yea, ten acres of vineyard shall yield one bath, and a homer of seed shall yield an ephah.

11. Woe unto them that, rising early in the morning, run after strong drink; that linger till twilight, {till} wine inflameth them!

12. And harp and lyre, tambour and flute, and wine are in their banquets; but they regard not the work of Jehovah, nor do they see the operation of his hands.

13. Therefore my people are led away captive from lack of knowledge, and their nobility die of famine, and their multitude are parched with thirst.

14. Therefore doth Sheol enlarge its desire, and open its mouth without measure; and her splendour shall descend {into it}, and her multitude, and her tumult, and {all} that is joyful within her.

15. And the mean man shall be bowed down, and the great man brought low, and the eyes of the lofty shall be brought low;

16. and Jehovah of hosts shall be exalted in judgment, and the holy *God hallowed in righteousness.

17. And the lambs shall feed as on their pasture, and the waste places of the fat ones shall strangers eat.

18. Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as with cart-ropes!

19. who say, Let him hasten, let him speed his work, that we may see {it}; and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw nigh and come, that we may know it!

20. Woe unto them who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

21. Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and intelligent in their own esteem!

22. Woe unto them that are mighty for drinking wine, and men valiant to mix strong drink;

23. who justify the wicked for a bribe, and turn away the righteousness of the righteous from them!

24. Therefore as a tongue of fire devoureth the stubble, and dry grass sinketh down in the flame, their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust; for they have rejected the law of Jehovah of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

25. Therefore is the anger of Jehovah kindled against his people, and he hath stretched out his hand against them and hath smitten them; and the mountains trembled, and their carcases are become as dung in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, and his hand is stretched out still.

26. And he will lift up a banner to the nations afar off, and will hiss for one from the end of the earth; and behold, it will come rapidly {and} lightly.

27. None among them is weary, none stumbleth; they slumber not, nor sleep; none hath the girdle of his loins loosed, nor the thong of his sandals broken;

28. their arrows are sharp, and all their bows bent; their horses' hoofs are reckoned as the flint, and their wheels as a whirlwind.

29. Their roaring is like a lioness, they roar as the young lions; yea, they growl, and snatch the prey, and carry it away safe, and there is none to deliver;

30. and they shall roar against them in that day like the roaring of the sea. And if one look upon the earth, behold darkness {and} distress, and the light is darkened in the heavens thereof.

1. In the year of the death of king Uzziah, I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and his train filled the temple.

2. Seraphim were standing above him: each had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he flew.

3. And one called to the other and said, Holy, holy, holy is Jehovah of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!

4. And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.

5. And I said, Woe unto me! for I am undone; for I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, Jehovah of hosts.

6. And one of the seraphim flew unto me, and he had in his hand a glowing coal, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar;

7. and he made it touch my mouth, and said, Behold, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin expiated.

8. And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? And I said, Here am I; send me.

9. And he said, Go; and thou shalt say unto this people, Hearing ye shall hear and shall not understand, and seeing ye shall see and shall not perceive.

10. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and blind their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and be converted, and healed.

11. And I said, Lord, how long? And he said, Until the cities be wasted, without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land become an utter desolation,

12. and Jehovah have removed men far away, and the solitude be great in the midst of the land.

13. But a tenth part shall still be therein, and it shall return and be eaten; as the terebinth and as the oak whose trunk {remaineth} after the felling: the holy seed shall be the trunk thereof.

1. And it came to pass in the days of Ahaz, the son of Jotham, the son of Uzziah, king of Judah, {that} Rezin the king of Syria, and Pekah the son of Remaliah, king of Israel, came up to Jerusalem to make war against it, but they were not able to fight against it.

2. And it was told the house of David saying, Syria is allied with Ephraim. Then his heart and the heart of his people shook, as the trees of the forest are shaken with the wind.

3. And Jehovah said to Isaiah, Go out now to meet Ahaz, thou and thy son Shear-jashub, at the end of the aqueduct of the upper pool, on the highway of the fuller's field;

4. and thou shalt say unto him, Take heed and be quiet; fear not, and let not thy heart faint before these two ends of smoking firebrands, because of the fierce anger of Rezin and Syria, and of the son of Remaliah.

5. Inasmuch as Syria hath taken evil counsel against thee, Ephraim {also} and the son of Remaliah, saying,

6. Let us go up against Judah, and harass it, and make a breach therein for us, and set up a king therein-the son of Tabeal;

7. thus saith the Lord Jehovah: It shall not stand, nor come to pass;

8. for the head of Syria is Damascus, and the head of Damascus is Rezin; and within sixty-five years shall Ephraim be broken, so as to be no {more a} people;

9. and the head of Ephraim is Samaria, and the head of Samaria is Remaliah's son. If ye believe not, surely ye shall not be established.

10. And Jehovah spoke again to Ahaz, saying,

11. Ask for thee a sign from Jehovah thy God; ask for it in the deep, or in the height above.

12. And Ahaz said, I will not ask, and will not tempt Jehovah.

13. And he said, Hear then, house of David: Is it a small matter for you to weary men, that ye weary also my God?

14. Therefore will the Lord himself give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and shall bring forth a son, and call his name Immanuel.

15. Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and to choose the good.

16. For before the child knoweth to refuse the evil and to choose the good, the land whose two kings thou fearest shall be forsaken.

17. Jehovah will bring upon thee, and upon thy people, and upon thy father's house, days which have not come since the day when Ephraim turned away from Judah-{even} the king of Assyria.

18. And it shall come to pass in that day, that Jehovah will hiss for the fly which is at the extremity of the streams of Egypt, and for the bee which is in the land of Assyria;

19. and they shall come and settle all of them in the desolate valleys, and in the holes of the rocks, and on all thorn-bushes, and on all the pastures.

20. In that day will the Lord, with a razor which is hired beyond the river, with the king of Assyria, shave the head and the hair of the feet, yea, the beard also will it take away.

21. And it shall come to pass in that day, {that} a man shall nourish a young cow and two sheep,

22. and it shall come to pass, from the abundance of milk they shall give, {that} he shall eat butter; for every one that remaineth in the midst of the land shall eat butter and honey.

23. And it shall come to pass in that day, {that} every place, where there were a thousand vines at a thousand silver pieces, shall become briars and thorns:

24. with arrows and with the bow shall they come thither, for the whole land shall become briars and thorns.

25. And all mountains that have been dug up with the hoe-thither will they not come, from fear of briars and thorns; and they shall be for the sending forth of oxen, and for the treading of small cattle.

1. And Jehovah said to me, Take thee a great tablet, and write thereon with a man's style, concerning Maher-shalal-hash-baz.

2. And I took unto me to witness, sure witnesses, Urijah the priest, and Zechariah the son of Jeberechiah.

3. And I came near to the prophetess, and she conceived and bore a son; and Jehovah said unto me, Call his name, Maher-shalal-hash-baz.

4. For before the lad knoweth to cry, My father! and, My mother! the riches of Damascus and the spoil of Samaria shall be taken away before the king of Assyria.

5. And Jehovah spoke again to me, saying,

6. Forasmuch as this people refuseth the waters of Shiloah which flow softly, and rejoiceth in Rezin and in the son of Remaliah,

7. therefore behold, the Lord will bring up upon them the waters of the river, strong and many, the king of Assyria and all his glory; and he shall mount up over all his channels, and go over all his banks:

8. and he shall pass through Judah; he shall overflow it and go further, he shall reach even to the neck; and the stretching out of his wings shall fill the breadth of thy land, O Immanuel!

9. Rage, ye peoples, and be broken in pieces! And give ear, all ye distant parts of the earth: Gird yourselves, and be broken in pieces; gird yourselves, and be broken in pieces!

10. Settle a plan, and it shall come to nought; speak a word, and it shall not stand: for *God is with us.

11. For Jehovah spoke thus to me with a strong hand, and he instructed me not to walk in the way of this people, saying,

12. Ye shall not say, Conspiracy, of everything of which this people saith, Conspiracy; and fear ye not their fear, and be not in dread.

13. Jehovah of hosts, him shall ye sanctify; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.

14. And he will be for a sanctuary; and for a stone of stumbling, and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

15. And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

16. Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples.

17. And I will wait for Jehovah, who hideth his face from the house of Jacob; and I will look for him.

18. Behold, I and the children that Jehovah hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel, from Jehovah of hosts, who dwelleth in mount Zion.

19. And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto the necromancers and unto the soothsayers, who chirp and who mutter, {say,} Shall not a people seek unto their God? {Will they go} for the living unto the dead?

20. To the law and the testimony! If they speak not according to this word, for them there is no daybreak.

21. And they shall pass through it, hard pressed and hungry; and it shall come to pass when they are hungry, they will fret themselves, and curse their king and their God, and will gaze upward:

22. and they will look to the earth; and behold, trouble and darkness, gloom of anguish; and they shall be driven into thick darkness.

1. Nevertheless the darkness shall not be as when the distress was in the {land}, at the time he at first lightly, and afterwards heavily, visited the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, -the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the nations:

2. the people that walked in darkness have seen a great light; they that dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, upon them light hath shone.

3. Thou hast multiplied the nation, hast increased its joy: they joy before thee like to the joy in harvest; as {men} rejoice when they divide the spoil.

4. For thou hast broken the yoke of his burden and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, as in the day of Midian.

5. For every boot of him that is shod for the tumult, and the garment rolled in blood, shall be for burning, fuel for fire.

6. For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder; and his name is called Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty *God, Father of Eternity, Prince of Peace.

7. Of the increase of his government and of peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it, and to uphold it with judgment and with righteousness, from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of Jehovah of hosts will perform this.

8. The Lord sent a word unto Jacob, and it lighteth upon Israel.

9. And all the people shall know {it}, Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria, that say in pride and stoutness of heart,

10. The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones; the sycamore trees are cut down, but we will replace them with cedars.

11. And Jehovah will set up the adversaries of Rezin against him, and arm his enemies,

12. the Syrians on the east, and the Philistines on the west; and they shall devour Israel with open mouth. For all this his anger is not turned away, and his hand is stretched out still.

13. But the people turneth not unto him that smiteth them, and they do not seek Jehovah of hosts.

14. And Jehovah will cut off from Israel head and tail, palm-branch and rush, in one day:

15. the ancient and honourable, he is the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail.

16. For the guides of this people mislead {them}; and they that are guided by them are swallowed up.

17. Therefore the Lord will not rejoice in their young men, neither will he have mercy on their fatherless and on their widows; for every one is a hypocrite and an evildoer, and every mouth speaketh folly. For all this his anger is not turned away, and his hand is stretched out still.

18. For wickedness burneth as a fire: it devoureth briars and thorns, and kindleth in the thickets of the forest, and they go rolling up like a pillar of smoke.

19. Through the wrath of Jehovah of hosts is the land burned up, and the people is as fuel for fire: a man spareth not his brother;

20. and he snatcheth on the right hand, and is hungry, and eateth on the left hand; and they are not satisfied. They eat every man the flesh of his own arm:

21. Manasseh, Ephraim, and Ephraim, Manasseh; {and} they together are against Judah. For all this his anger is not turned away, and his hand is stretched out still.

1. Woe unto them that decree iniquitous decrees, and to the writers that prescribe oppression,

2. to turn away the poor from judgment, and to take away the right from the afflicted of my people; that widows may be their prey, and that they may rob the fatherless!

3. And what will ye do in the day of visitation, and in the sudden destruction {which} shall come from far? To whom will ye flee for help, and where will ye leave your glory?

4. They can but crouch under the prisoners, and they shall fall under the slain. For all this his anger is not turned away, and his hand is stretched out still.

5. Ah! the Assyrian! the rod of mine anger! and the staff in their hand is mine indignation.

6. I will send him against a hypocritical nation, and against the people of my wrath will I give him a charge; to take the spoil, and to seize the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets.

7. But he meaneth not so, neither doth his heart think so; for it is in his heart to extirpate and cut off nations not a few.

8. For he saith, Are not my princes all kings?

9. Is not Calno as Karkemish? Is not Hamath as Arpad? Is not Samaria as Damascus?

10. As my hand hath found the kingdoms of the idols, -and their graven images exceeded those of Jerusalem and Samaria,

11. -shall I not, as I have done unto Samaria and her idols, so do to Jerusalem and her images?

12. And it shall come to pass, when the Lord hath performed his whole work upon mount Zion and upon Jerusalem, I will punish the fruit of the stoutness of heart of the king of Assyria, and the glory of his high looks.

13. For he saith, By the strength of my hand I have done {it}, and by my wisdom, for I am intelligent; and I have removed the bounds of the peoples, and have robbed their treasures, and, like a valiant man, I have brought down them that sit {on thrones};

14. and my hand hath found as a nest the riches of the peoples, and as one gathereth forsaken eggs, have I gathered all the earth; and there was none that moved the wing, or opened the mouth, or chirped.

15. -Shall the axe boast itself against him that heweth therewith? shall the saw magnify itself against him that wieldeth it? As if the rod should wield them that lift it up; as if the staff should lift up {him who is} not wood!

16. Therefore shall the Lord, Jehovah of hosts, send among his fat ones leanness, and under his glory he shall kindle a burning, like the burning of a fire:

17. and the light of Israel shall be for a fire, and his Holy One for a flame; and it shall burn and devour his thorns and his briars in one day,
