NASB — Isaiah 32 — KJV

The Glorious Future

  1 Behold, a aking will reign righteously
  And princes will rule justly.
  2 Each will be like a arefuge from the wind
  And a shelter from the storm,
  Like Ibstreams of water in a dry country,
  Like the ashade of a IIhuge rock in IIIa parched land.
  3 Then athe eyes of those who see will not be Iblinded,
  And the ears of those who hear will listen.
  4 The Imind of the ahasty will discern the IItruth,
  And the tongue of the stammerers will hasten to speak clearly.
  5 No longer will the afool be called noble,
  Or the rogue be spoken of [as] generous.
  6 For a fool speaks nonsense,
  And his heart Iainclines toward wickedness:
  To practice bungodliness and to speak error against the LORD,
  To IIckeep the hungry person unsatisfied
  And IIIto withhold drink from the thirsty.
  7 As for a rogue, his weapons are evil;
  He adevises wicked schemes
  To bdestroy [the] afflicted with Islander,
  cEven though [the] needy one speaks IIwhat is right.
  8 But athe noble man devises noble plans;
  And by noble plans he stands.

  16 Then ajustice will dwell in the wilderness
  And righteousness will abide in the fertile field.
  17 And the awork of righteousness will be peace,
  And the service of righteousness, bquietness and Iconfidence forever.
  18 Then my people will live in a apeaceful habitation,
  And in secure dwellings and in undisturbed bresting places;
  19 And it will ahail when the bforest comes down,
  And cthe city will be utterly laid low.
  20 How ablessed will you be, you who sow beside all waters,
  Who Ilet out freely the ox and the donkey.

The blessings of Christ's Kingdom.

1 ¶ Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment. 2 And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land. 3 And the eyes of them that see shall not be dim, and the ears of them that hear shall hearken. 4 The heart also of the rash shall understand knowledge, and the tongue of the stammerers shall be ready to speak plainly. 5 The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl said [to be] bountiful. 6 For the vile person will speak villany, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, and to utter error against the LORD, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail. 7 The instruments also of the churl [are] evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right. 8 But the liberal deviseth liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand.

Desolation is foreshewn.

9 ¶ Rise up, ye women that are at ease; hear my voice, ye careless daughters; give ear unto my speech. 10 Many days and years shall ye be troubled, ye careless women: for the vintage shall fail, the gathering shall not come. 11 Tremble, ye women that are at ease; be troubled, ye careless ones: strip you, and make you bare, and gird [sackcloth] upon [your] loins. 12 They shall lament for the teats, for the pleasant fields, for the fruitful vine. 13 Upon the land of my people shall come up thorns [and] briers; yea, upon all the houses of joy [in] the joyous city: 14 Because the palaces shall be forsaken; the multitude of the city shall be left; the forts and towers shall be for dens for ever, a joy of wild asses, a pasture of flocks;

Restoration is promised to succeed.

15 Until the spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted for a forest. 16 Then judgment shall dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness remain in the fruitful field. 17 And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever. 18 And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places; 19 When it shall hail, coming down on the forest; and the city shall be low in a low place. 20 Blessed [are] ye that sow beside all waters, that send forth [thither] the feet of the ox and the ass.
