Rebellion of God’s People

1 The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz concerning aJudah and Jerusalem, which he saw during the Ireigns of bUzziah, cJotham, dAhaz [and] eHezekiah, kings of Judah.
  2 aListen, O heavens, and hear, O bearth;
  For the LORD speaks,
  “cSons I have reared and brought up,
  But they have drevolted against Me.
  3 “An ox knows its owner,
  And a donkey its master’s manger,
  [But] Israel adoes not know,
  My people bdo not understand.”

  It is desolation, as overthrown by strangers.
  8 The daughter of Zion is left like a shelter in a vineyard,
  Like a watchman’s hut in a cucumber field, like a besieged city.

  You rulers of bSodom;
  Give ear to the instruction of our God,
  You people of Gomorrah.
  11aWhat are your multiplied sacrifices to Me?”
  Says the LORD.
  “I Ihave had enough of burnt offerings of rams
  And the fat of fed cattle;
  And I take no pleasure in the blood of bulls, lambs or goats.
  12 “When you come ato appear before Me,
  Who requires Iof you this trampling of My courts?
  13 “Bring your worthless offerings no longer,
  aIncense is an abomination to Me.
  bNew moon and sabbath, the ccalling of assemblies
  I cannot dendure iniquity and the solemn assembly.
  14 “I hate your new moon [festivals] and your aappointed feasts,
  They have become a burden to Me;
  I am bweary of bearing [them].
  15 “So when you aspread out your hands [in prayer],
  bI will hide My eyes from you;
  Yes, even though you cmultiply prayers,
  I will not listen.

Zion Corrupted, to Be Redeemed

  21 ¶ How the faithful city has become a aharlot,
  She [who] was full of justice!
  Righteousness once lodged in her,
  But now murderers.
  22 Your silver has become dross,
  Your drink diluted with water.
  23 Your arulers are rebels
  And companions of thieves;
  Everyone bloves a bribe
  And chases after rewards.
  They cdo not Idefend the IIorphan,
  Nor does the widow’s plea come before them.

  The aMighty One of Israel, declares,
  “Ah, I will be relieved of My adversaries
  And bavenge Myself on My foes.
  25 “I will also turn My hand against you,
  And will asmelt away your dross as with lye
  And will remove all your alloy.
  26 “Then I will restore your ajudges as at the first,
  And your counselors as at the beginning;

Isaiah complaineth of Judah for her rebellion.

1 ¶ The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, [and] Hezekiah, kings of Judah. 2 Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the LORD 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: [but] Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider. 4 Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.

He lamenteth her judgments.

5 ¶ Why should ye be stricken 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 it; [but] wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment. 7 Your country [is] desolate, your cities [are] burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and [it is] desolate, as overthrown by strangers. 8 And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city. 9 Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, [and] we should have been like unto Gomorrah.

He upbraideth their whole service.

10 ¶ Hear the word of the LORD, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah. 11 To what purpose [is] the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats. 12 When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts? 13 Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; [it is] iniquity, even the solemn meeting. 14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear [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.

He exhorteth to repentance, with promises and threatenings.

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, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow. 18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: 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 obedient, 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 the LORD hath spoken [it].

Bewailing their wickedness, he denounceth God's judgments.

21 ¶ How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers. 22 Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water: 23 Thy princes [are] rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them. 24 Therefore saith the Lord, the LORD of hosts, the mighty One of Israel, Ah, I will ease me of mine adversaries, and avenge me of mine enemies:

28 ¶ And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners [shall be] together, and they that forsake the LORD shall be consumed. 29 For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which ye have desired, and ye shall be confounded for the gardens that ye have chosen. 30 For ye shall be as an oak whose leaf fadeth, and as a garden that hath no water. 31 And the strong shall be as tow, and the maker of it as a spark, and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench [them].
