NASB — Isaiah 14 — KJV

Israel’s Taunt

1 When the LORD will ahave compassion on Jacob and again bchoose Israel, and settle them in their own land, then cstrangers will join them and attach themselves to the house of Jacob. 2 The peoples will take them along and bring them to their place, and the ahouse of Israel will possess them as an inheritance in the land of the LORD bas male servants and female servants; and Ithey will take their captors captive and will rule over their oppressors.

3 ¶ And it will be in the day when the LORD gives you arest from your pain and turmoil and harsh service in which you have been enslaved, 4 that you will atake up this Itaunt against the king of Babylon, and say,
  “How bthe oppressor has ceased,
  [And how] IIfury has ceased!
  5 “The LORD has broken the staff of the wicked,
  The scepter of rulers
  6 aWhich used to strike the peoples in fury with unceasing strokes,
  Which Isubdued the nations in anger with unrestrained persecution.
  7 “The whole earth is at rest [and] is quiet;
  They abreak forth into shouts of joy.
  8 “Even the acypress trees rejoice over you, [and] the cedars of Lebanon, [saying],
  ‘Since you were laid low, no [tree] cutter comes up against us.’
  9aSheol from beneath is excited over you to meet you when you come;
  It arouses for you the Ispirits of the dead, all the IIleaders of the earth;
  It raises all the kings of the nations from their thrones.
  10aThey will all respond and say to you,
  ‘Even you have been made weak as we,
  You have become like us.
  11 ‘Your apomp [and] the music of your harps
  Have been brought down to Sheol;
  Maggots are spread out [as your bed] beneath you
  And worms are your covering.’
  12 “How you have afallen from heaven,
  O Ibstar of the morning, son of the dawn!
  You have been cut down to the earth,
  You who have weakened the nations!
  13 “But you said in your heart,
  ‘I will aascend to heaven;
  I will braise my throne above the stars of God,
  And I will sit on the mount of assembly
  In the recesses of the north.
  14 ‘I will ascend above the heights of the clouds;
  aI will make myself like the Most High.’
  15 “Nevertheless you awill be thrust down to Sheol,
  To the recesses of the pit.
  16 “Those who see you will gaze at you,
  They will Iponder over you, [saying],
  ‘Is this the man who made the earth tremble,
  Who shook kingdoms,
  17 Who made the world like a awilderness
  And overthrew its cities,
  Who bdid not Iallow his prisoners to [go] home?’
  18 “All the kings of the nations lie in glory,
  Each in his own Itomb.
  19 “But you have been acast out of your tomb
  Like Ia rejected branch,
  IIClothed with the slain who are pierced with a sword,
  Who go down to the stones of the bpit
  Like a ctrampled corpse.
  20 “You will not be united with them in burial,
  Because you have ruined your country,
  You have slain your people.
  May the aoffspring of evildoers not be mentioned forever.
  21 “Prepare for his sons a place of slaughter
  Because of the ainiquity of their fathers.
  They must not arise and take possession of the earth
  And fill the face of the world with cities.”
22 “I will rise up against them,” declares the LORD of hosts, “and will cut off from Babylon aname and survivors, boffspring and posterity,” declares the LORD. 23 “I will also make it a possession for the ahedgehog and swamps of water, and I will sweep it with the broom of bdestruction,” declares the LORD of hosts.

Judgment on Assyria

24 The LORD of hosts has sworn saying, “Surely, ajust as I have intended so it has happened, and just as I have planned so it will stand, 25 to abreak Assyria in My land, and I will trample him on My mountains. Then his byoke will be removed from them and his burden removed from their shoulder. 26 This is the aplan Idevised against the whole earth; and this is the bhand that is stretched out against all the nations. 27 For athe LORD of hosts has planned, and who can frustrate [it]?

God's merciful restoration of Israel.

1 ¶ For the LORD will have mercy on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel, and set them in their own land: and the strangers shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob. 2 And the people shall take them, and bring them to their place: and the house of Israel shall possess them in the land of the LORD for servants and handmaids: and they shall take them captives, whose captives they were; and they shall rule over their oppressors. 3 And it shall come to pass in the day that the LORD shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve,

Their triumphant insultation over Babel.

4 ¶ That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased! 5 The LORD hath broken the staff of the wicked, [and] the sceptre of the rulers. 6 He who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, [and] none hindereth. 7 The whole earth is at rest, [and] is quiet: they break forth into singing. 8 Yea, the fir trees rejoice at thee, [and] the cedars of Lebanon, [saying], Since thou art laid down, no feller is come up against us. 9 Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet [thee] at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, [even] all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations. 10 All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us? 11 Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, [and] the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee. 12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! [how] art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! 13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. 15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. 16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, [and] consider thee, [saying, Is] this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; 17 [That] made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; [that] opened not the house of his prisoners? 18 All the kings of the nations, [even] all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house. 19 But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, [and as] the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet. 20 Thou shalt not be joined with them in burial, because thou hast destroyed thy land, [and] slain thy people: the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned. 21 Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities. 22 For I will rise up against them, saith the LORD of hosts, and cut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son, and nephew, saith the LORD. 23 I will also make it a possession for the bittern, and pools of water: and I will sweep it with the besom of destruction, saith the LORD of hosts.

God's purpose against Assyria.

24 ¶ The LORD of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, [so] shall it stand: 25 That I will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon my mountains tread him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders. 26 This [is] the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this [is] the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations. 27 For the LORD of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul [it]? and his hand [is] stretched out, and who shall turn it back? 28 In the year that king Ahaz died was this burden.

That the LORD hath founded Zion, and the poor of his people shall trust in it.
