NASB — Isaiah 24 — KJV

Judgment on the Earth

1 Behold, the LORD alays the earth waste, devastates it, distorts its surface and scatters its inhabitants. 2 And the people will be like the priest, the servant like his master, the maid like her mistress, the buyer like the seller, the lender like the borrower, the acreditor like the debtor. 3 The earth will be completely laid waste and completely despoiled, for the LORD has spoken this word. 4 The aearth mourns [and] withers, the world fades [and] withers, the bexalted of the people of the earth fade away. 5 The earth is also apolluted Iby its inhabitants, for they transgressed laws, violated statutes, bbroke the everlasting covenant. 6 Therefore, a acurse devours the earth, and those who live in it are held guilty. Therefore, the binhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men are left.

  7 ¶ The anew wine mourns,
  The vine decays,
  All the merry-hearted sigh.
  8 The agaiety of tambourines ceases,
  The noise of revelers stops,
  The gaiety of the harp ceases.
  9 They do not drink wine with song;
  aStrong drink is bbitter to those who drink it.
  10 The acity of chaos is broken down;
  bEvery house is shut up so that none may enter.
  11 There is an aoutcry in the streets concerning the wine;
  bAll joy Iturns to gloom.
  The gaiety of the earth is banished.
  12 Desolation is left in the city
  And the agate is battered to ruins.
  13 For athus it will be in the midst of the earth among the peoples,
  As the Ishaking of an olive tree,
  As the gleanings when the grape harvest is over.
  14 aThey raise their voices, they shout for joy;
  They cry out from the Iwest concerning the majesty of the LORD.
  15 Therefore aglorify the LORD in the Ieast,
  The bname of the LORD, the God of Israel,
  In the IIccoastlands of the sea.
  16 From the aends of the earth we hear songs, “bGlory to the Righteous One,”
  But I say, “IcWoe to me! IWoe to me! Alas for me!
  The dtreacherous deal treacherously,
  And the treacherous deal very treacherously.”
  17 aTerror and pit and snare
  IConfront you, O inhabitant of the earth.
  18 Then it will be that he who flees the Ireport of disaster will fall into the pit,
  And he who IIclimbs out of the pit will be caught in the snare;
  For the awindows IIIabove are opened, and the bfoundations of the earth shake.
  19 aThe earth is broken asunder,
  The earth is bsplit through,
  The earth is shaken violently.
  20 The earth areels to and fro like a drunkard
  And it totters like a Ishack,
  For its btransgression is heavy upon it,
  And it will fall, cnever to rise again.
  21 So it will happen in that day,
  That the LORD will apunish the host of Iheaven on high,
  And the bkings of the earth on earth.
  22 They will be gathered together
  [Like] aprisoners in the Idungeon,
  And will be confined in prison;
  And after many days they [will] b[be] punished.
  23 Then the amoon will be abashed and the sun ashamed,
  For the bLORD of hosts will reign on cMount Zion and in Jerusalem,
  And [His] glory will be before His elders.

The doleful judgments of God upon the land.

1 ¶ Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof. 2 And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. 3 The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD hath spoken this word. 4 The earth mourneth [and] fadeth away, the world languisheth [and] fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish. 5 The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. 6 Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left. 7 The new wine mourneth, the vine languisheth, all the merryhearted do sigh. 8 The mirth of tabrets ceaseth, the noise of them that rejoice endeth, the joy of the harp ceaseth. 9 They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink shall be bitter to them that drink it. 10 The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut up, that no man may come in. 11 [There is] a crying for wine in the streets; all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone. 12 In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction.

God in his judgments shall advance his Kingdom.

16 ¶ From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, [even] glory to the righteous. But I said, My leanness, my leanness, woe unto me! the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously; yea, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously. 17 Fear, and the pit, and the snare, [are] upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth. 18 And it shall come to pass, [that] he who fleeth from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake. 19 The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly. 20 The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again. 21 And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones [that are] on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth. 22 And they shall be gathered together, [as] prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited. 23 Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.
