NASB — Isaiah 29 — KJV

Jerusalem Is Warned

  1 Woe, O IAriel, IAriel the city [where] David [once] acamped!
  Add year to year, IIbobserve [your] feasts on schedule.
  2 I will bring distress to Ariel,
  And she will be [a city of] lamenting and amourning;
  And she will be like an Ariel to me.
  3 I will acamp against you Iencircling [you],
  And I will set siegeworks against you,
  And I will raise up battle towers against you.
  4 Then you will abe brought low;
  From the earth you will speak,
  And from the dust [where] you are prostrate
  Your words [will come].
  Your voice will also be like that of a Ispirit from the ground,
  And your speech will whisper from the dust.

[1] II.e. Lion of God, or Jerusalem IILit let your feasts run their round a2S 5:9 bIs 1:14; 5:12; 22:12, 13; 29:9, 13
[2] aIs 3:26; Lm 2:5
[3] ILit like a circle aLk 19:43, 44
[4] IOr ghost aIs 8:19

  5 ¶ But the multitude of your Ienemies will become like fine adust,
  And the multitude of the bruthless ones like the chaff which IIblows away;
  And it will happen cinstantly, suddenly.
  6 From the LORD of hosts you will be apunished with bthunder and earthquake and loud noise,
  [With] whirlwind and tempest and the flame of a consuming fire.
  7 And the amultitude of all the nations who wage war against IAriel,
  Even all who wage war against her and her stronghold, and who distress her,
  Will be like a dream, a bvision of the night.
  8 It will be as when a hungry man dreams
  And behold, he is eating;
  But when he awakens, his Ihunger is not satisfied,
  Or as when a thirsty man dreams
  And behold, he is drinking,
  But when he awakens, behold, he is faint
  And his Ithirst is not quenched.
  aThus the multitude of all the nations will be
  Who wage war against Mount Zion.

  9aBe delayed and wait,
  Blind yourselves and be blind;
  They bbecome drunk, but not with wine,
  They stagger, but not with strong drink.
  10 For the LORD has poured over you a spirit of deep asleep,
  He has bshut your eyes, the prophets;
  And He has covered your heads, the seers.
11 The entire vision will be to you like the words of a sealed Iabook, which when they give it to the one who IIis literate, saying, “Please read this,” he will say, “I cannot, for it is sealed.” 12 Then the Ibook will be given to the one who IIis illiterate, saying, “Please read this.” And he will say, “I IIIcannot read.”

13 ¶ Then the Lord said,
  “Because athis people draw near with their Iwords
  And honor Me with their IIlip service,
  But they remove their hearts far from Me,
  And their IIIreverence for Me IVconsists of Vtradition learned [by rote],
  14 Therefore behold, I will once again deal amarvelously with this people, wondrously marvelous;
  And bthe wisdom of their wise men will perish,
  And the discernment of their discerning men will be concealed.”

  15 ¶ Woe to those who deeply ahide their Iplans from the LORD,
  And whose bdeeds are [done] in a dark place,
  And they say, “cWho sees us?” or “Who knows us?”
  16 You turn [things] around!
  Shall the potter be considered Ias equal with the clay,
  That awhat is made would say to its maker, “He did not make me”;
  Or what is formed say to him who formed it, “He has no understanding”?

Blessing after Discipline

  17 ¶ Is it not yet just a little while
  IBefore Lebanon will be turned into a afertile field,
  And the fertile field will be considered as a forest?
  18 On that day the adeaf will hear bwords of a book,
  And out of [their] gloom and darkness the ceyes of the blind will see.
  19 The aafflicted also will increase their gladness in the LORD,
  And the bneedy of mankind will rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.
  20 For the aruthless will come to an end and the bscorner will be finished,
  Indeed call who Iare intent on doing evil will be cut off;
  21 Who Icause a person to be indicted by a word,
  And aensnare him who adjudicates at the gate,
  And IIbdefraud the one in the right with IIImeaningless arguments.

God's heavy judgment upon Jerusalem.

1 ¶ Woe to Ariel, to Ariel, the city [where] David dwelt! add ye year to year; let them kill sacrifices. 2 Yet I will distress Ariel, and there shall be heaviness and sorrow: and it shall be unto me as Ariel. 3 And I will camp against thee round about, and will lay siege against thee with a mount, and I will raise forts against thee. 4 And thou shalt be brought down, [and] shalt speak out of the ground, and thy speech shall be low out of the dust, and thy voice shall be, as of one that hath a familiar spirit, out of the ground, and thy speech shall whisper out of the dust. 5 Moreover the multitude of thy strangers shall be like small dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones [shall be] as chaff that passeth away: yea, it shall be at an instant suddenly. 6 Thou shalt be visited of the LORD of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.

The unsatiableness of her enemies.

7 ¶ And the multitude of all the nations that fight against Ariel, even all that fight against her and her munition, and that distress her, shall be as a dream of a night vision. 8 It shall even be as when an hungry [man] dreameth, and, behold, he eateth; but he awaketh, and his soul is empty: or as when a thirsty man dreameth, and, behold, he drinketh; but he awaketh, and, behold, [he is] faint, and his soul hath appetite: so shall the multitude of all the nations be, that fight against mount Zion.

The senselessness,

9 ¶ Stay yourselves, and wonder; cry ye out, and cry: they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink. 10 For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered. 11 And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which [men] deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it [is] sealed: 12 And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.

and deep hypocrisy of the Jews.

13 ¶ Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near [me] with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men: 14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, [even] a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise [men] shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent [men] shall be hid. 15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us? 16 Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter's clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding? 17 [Is] it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest?

A promise of sanctification to the godly.

18 ¶ And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness. 19 The meek also shall increase [their] joy in the LORD, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel. 20 For the terrible one is brought to nought, and the scorner is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off: 21 That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of nought. 22 Therefore thus saith the LORD, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob, Jacob shall not now be ashamed, neither shall his face now wax pale. 23 But when he seeth his children, the work of mine hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name, and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel. 24 They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.
