NASB — Isaiah 33 — KJV

The Judgment of God

  1 Woe ato you, O destroyer,
  While you were not destroyed;
  And he bwho is treacherous, while [others] did not deal treacherously with him.
  As soon as you finish destroying, cyou will be destroyed;
  As soon as you cease to deal treacherously, [others] will ddeal treacherously with you.
  2 O LORD, abe gracious to us; we have bwaited for You.
  Be Itheir IIcstrength every morning,
  Our salvation also in the dtime of distress.
  3 At the sound of the tumult apeoples flee;
  At the blifting up of Yourself nations disperse.
  4 Your spoil is gathered [as] the caterpillar gathers;
  As locusts rushing about men rush about on it.
  5 The LORD is aexalted, for He dwells on high;
  He has bfilled Zion with justice and righteousness.
  6 And He will be the Iastability of your times,
  A bwealth of salvation, wisdom and cknowledge;
  The dfear of the LORD is his treasure.
  7 Behold, their brave men cry in Ithe streets,
  The IIaambassadors of peace weep bitterly.
  8 The highways are desolate, Ithe atraveler has ceased,
  He has bbroken the covenant, he has despised the cities,
  He has no regard for man.
  9 aThe land mourns [and] pines away,
  bLebanon is shamed [and] withers;
  cSharon is like a desert plain,
  And Bashan and Carmel Ilose [their foliage].
  10 “Now aI will arise,” says the LORD,
  “Now I will be exalted, now I will be lifted up.
  11 “You have aconceived Ichaff, you will give birth to stubble;
  IIMy bbreath will consume you like a fire.
  12 “The peoples will be burned to lime,
  aLike cut thorns which are burned in the fire.

  “Where is bhe who counts?
  Where is he who weighs?
  Where is he who counts the towers?”
  19 You will no longer see a fierce people,
  A people of Iaunintelligible speech IIwhich no one comprehends,
  Of a stammering tongue IIIwhich no one understands.
  20 aLook upon Zion, the city of our appointed feasts;
  Your eyes will see Jerusalem, an bundisturbed habitation,
  cA tent which will not be folded;
  Its stakes will never be pulled up,
  Nor any of its cords be torn apart.
  21 But there the majestic [One], the LORD, will be for us
  A place of arivers [and] wide canals
  On which no boat with oars will go,
  And on which no mighty ship will pass
  22 For the LORD is our ajudge,
  The LORD is bour lawgiver,
  The LORD is cour king;
  dHe will save us—
  23 Your tackle hangs slack;
  It cannot hold the base of its mast firmly,
  Nor spread out the sail.
  Then the aprey of an abundant spoil will be divided;
  bThe lame will take the plunder.
  24 And no resident will say, “I am asick”;
  The people who dwell Ithere will be bforgiven [their] iniquity.

God's judgment against the enemies of his Church.

1 ¶ Woe to thee that spoilest, and thou [wast] not spoiled; and dealest treacherously, and they dealt not treacherously with thee! when thou shalt cease to spoil, thou shalt be spoiled; [and] when thou shalt make an end to deal treacherously, they shall deal treacherously with thee. 2 O LORD, be gracious unto us; we have waited for thee: be thou their arm every morning, our salvation also in the time of trouble. 3 At the noise of the tumult the people fled; at the lifting up of thyself the nations were scattered. 4 And your spoil shall be gathered [like] the gathering of the caterpiller: as the running to and fro of locusts shall he run upon them. 5 The LORD is exalted; for he dwelleth on high: he hath filled Zion with judgment and righteousness. 6 And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, [and] strength of salvation: the fear of the LORD [is] his treasure. 7 Behold, their valiant ones shall cry without: the ambassadors of peace shall weep bitterly. 8 The highways lie waste, the wayfaring man ceaseth: he hath broken the covenant, he hath despised the cities, he regardeth no man. 9 The earth mourneth [and] languisheth: Lebanon is ashamed [and] hewn down: Sharon is like a wilderness; and Bashan and Carmel shake off [their fruits]. 10 Now will I rise, saith the LORD; now will I be exalted; now will I lift up myself. 11 Ye shall conceive chaff, ye shall bring forth stubble: your breath, [as] fire, shall devour you. 12 And the people shall be [as] the burnings of lime: [as] thorns cut up shall they be burned in the fire.

The privileges of the godly.

13 ¶ Hear, ye [that are] far off, what I have done; and, ye [that are] near, acknowledge my might. 14 The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings? 15 He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil; 16 He shall dwell on high: his place of defence [shall be] the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters [shall be] sure. 17 Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off. 18 Thine heart shall meditate terror. Where [is] the scribe? where [is] the receiver? where [is] he that counted the towers? 19 Thou shalt not see a fierce people, a people of a deeper speech than thou canst perceive; of a stammering tongue, [that thou canst] not understand. 20 Look upon Zion, the city of our solemnities: thine eyes shall see Jerusalem a quiet habitation, a tabernacle [that] shall not be taken down; not one of the stakes thereof shall ever be removed, neither shall any of the cords thereof be broken. 21 But there the glorious LORD [will be] unto us a place of broad rivers [and] streams; wherein shall go no galley with oars, neither shall gallant ship pass thereby. 22 For the LORD [is] our judge, the LORD [is] our lawgiver, the LORD [is] our king; he will save us. 23 Thy tacklings are loosed; they could not well strengthen their mast, they could not spread the sail: then is the prey of a great spoil divided; the lame take the prey. 24 And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein [shall be] forgiven [their] iniquity.
