12 ^ As for my people, "^children are
their oppressors, and women rule over them.
O my people, ' || they which lead thee cause
thee to err, and f destroy the way of thy paths.

13 The Lord standeth up "to plead, and
standeth to judge the people.

14 The Lord will enter into judgment '
with the ancients of his people, and the
princes thereof-: for ye have 1| eaten up " the

The punishment of the women.

16 IF Moreover the Lord saith, Because
the daughters of Zion axe haughty, and
walk with stretched forth necks and f wan-
ton eyes, walking and || mincing as they go,
and making a tinkling with their feet :

17 Therefore the Lord will smite with
Pa scab the crown of the head of the daugh-
ters of Zion, and the Lord will f^ discover
their secret parts.

18 In that day the Lord will take away
the bravery of their tinkling ornaments cAout

, their feet ^ and their |1 cauls, and their 'round
tires like the moon,

19 The II chains, and the bracelets, and
the II mufflers,

20 The bonnets, and the ornaments of the
legs, and the head-bands, and the f tablets,
and the ear-rings,

21 The rings, and nose-jewels,

22 The changeable suits of apparel, and
the mantles, and the wimples, and the crisp-

23 The glasses, and the fine linen, and
the hoods, and the vails.

24 And it shall come to pass, that instead
of sweet smell there shall be stink ; and in-
stead of a girdle a rent ; and instead of well
set hair ' baldness ; and instead of a stoma-
cher a girding of sackcloth : and burning
instead of beauty.

25 Thy men shall fall by the sword,
and thy f mighty in the war.

is left in Zion, and he that remaineth in

vere judgment. 8 His judgments upon covetousness,
11 upon lasciviousness, 13 itpon impiety, 2Q and upon
injustice. 26 The executioners of God's judgments.

"VrOW will I sing to my well-beloved a
X 1 song of my beloved touching * his vine-
yard. My well-beloved hath a vineyard in
fa very fruitful hill :

2 And he || fenced it, and gathered out
the stones thereof, and planted it with the
choicest vine, and built a tower in the midst
of it, and also fmade a wine-press therein:
I" and he looked that it should bring forth
grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes.

3 And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem,
and men of Judah, " judge, I pray you, be-
twixt me and my vineyard.

4 What could have been done more to
my vineyard, that I have not done in it ?

looked that it should,
brought it forth wild

wherefore, when I
bring forth grapes,
grapes ?

5 And now go to ; I will tell you what 1
will do to my vineyard: "^I will take away
the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten up ;
and break down the wall thereof, and it shall
be t trodden down :

6 And I will lay it waste : it shall not be
pruned, nor digged ; but there shall come
up briers and thorns : I will also command,
the clouds that they rain no rain upon it.

7 For the vineyard of the Lord of hosts
is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah
't his pleasant plant : and he looked for
judgment, but behold f oppression ; for right-
eousness, but behold a cry.

8 IWo unto them that join "house to
house, that lay field to field, till there be no
place, that t they may be placed alone in
the midst of the earth !

9 *■ II In mine ears, said the Lord of hosts,
t Of a truth many houses shall be desolate,
even great and fair, without inhabitant.

10 Yea, ten acres of vineyard shall yield
one 8 bath, and the seed of an homer shall
yield an ephah.

God's judgments on impiety and injustice. ISAIAH.

12 And 'the harp, and the viol, the tabret,
and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts : but
''they regard not the work of the Lord,
neither consider the operation of his hands.
1311 'There fore my people are gone into
captivity, -"because they have no knowledge :
and t their honourable men are famished,
and their multitude dried up with thirst.

14 Therefore hell hath enlarged herself,
and opened her mouth without measure :
and their glory, and their multitude, and
their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall de-
scend into it.

15 And "the mean man shall be brought
down, and the mighty man shall be hum-
bled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be
humbled :

16 But the Lord of hosts shall be exalted
in judgment, and | t God that is holy shall
be sanctified in righteousness.

17 Then shall the lambs feed after their
manner, and the waste places of ° the fat one
shall strangers eat.

18 Wo unto them that draw iniquity
with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with
a cart-rope :

19 P That say. Let him make speed, and
nasten his work, that we may see it : and let
the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw
nigh and come, that we may know it !

20 TT Wo unto them t that call evil good,
and good evil; that put darkness for light,
and light for darkness ; that put bitter for
sweet, and sweet for bitter !

21 Wo unto them that are <i wise in
their own eyes, and prudent tin their own
sight !

22 'Wo unto them that are mighty to
drink wine, and men of strength to mingle
strong drink :

23 Which ^justify the wicked for reward,
and take away the righteousness of the right-
eous from him!

24 Therefore ' as t the fire devoureth the
stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff,
so "their root shall be as rottenness, and
their blossom shall go up as dust : because
they have cast away the law of the Lord
of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy
One of Israel.

25 "Therefore is the anger of the Lord
kindled against his people, and he hath
stretched forth his hand against them, and
hath smitten them : and y the hills did trem-

Isaiah's vision of God's glory.

from Uhe end of the earth; and behold,
''they shall come with speed swiftly :

27 None shall be weary nor stumble among
them ; none shall slumber nor sleep ; neither
« shall the girdle of their loins be loosed, nor
the latchet of their shoes be broken :

28 ^ Whose arrows are sharp, and all their
bows bent, their horses' hoofs shall be
counted like flint, and their wheels like a

29 Their roaring shall be like a lion,
they shall roar like young lions : yea, they
shall roar, and lay hold of the prey, and
shall carry it away safe, and none shall de-
liver it.

30 And in that day they shall roar against
them, like the roaring of the sea : and if
one ^look unto the land, behold, darkness
and II sorrow, || and the light is darkened in
the heavens thereof.




1 Isaiah, in a vision of the Lord in his glory, 5 being
terrified, is confirmed for his message. 9 He sheweth
the obstinacy of the people unto their desolation. 13 A
remnant shall be saved.

N the year that =^king Uzziah died I '' saw
also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high
and lifted up, and || his train filled the

2 Above it stood the seraphims : each one
had six wings ; with twain he covered his
face, and •'with twain he covered his feet,
and with twain he did fly.

3 And t one cried unto another, and said,
^Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts:
t " the whole earth is full of his glory.

4 And the posts of the t door moved at
the voice of him that cried, and ^ the house
was filled with smoke.

5 Us Then said I, Wo is me ! for I am
t undone; because I am a man of unclean
lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of
unclean lips : for mine eyes have seen the
King, the Lord of hosts.

6 Then flew one of the seraphims unto
me, t having a live coal in his hand, which
he had taken with the tongs from off '' the
altar :

7 And he t'laid it upon my mouth, and
said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips ; and
thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin

8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord,
saying, Whom shall I send, and who will

Ahaz, being troubled with fear,

10 Make ""the heart of this people fat,
and make their ears heavy, and shut their
eyes; "lest they see with their eyes, and
hear with their ears, and understand with
their heart, -and convert, and be healed.

11 Then said I, Lord, how long? And
he answered, "Until the cities be Avasted
without inhabitant, and the houses without
man, and the land be t utterly desolate ;

far away, and there he a great forsaking in

13 IT But yet in it shall he a tenth, Ij and
it shall return, and shall be eaten : as a teil-
tree, and as an oak whose || substance is in
them, when they cast their leaves : so •) the
holy seed shall be the substance thereof.


. Ahaz, being troubled with fear ofRezin and Pekah, is
comforted by Isaiah. 10 Afiaz, having liberty to choose
a sign, and refusing it, hath for a sign, Christ promised.
17 His judgment is prophesied to come by Assyria.

AND it came to pass in the days of
^Ahaz the son of Jotham, the son of
Uzziah, king of Judah, that Rezin the king
of Syria, and Pekah the son of Remaliah,
king of Israel, went up toward Jerusalem
to war against it, but cotild not prevail a-
gainst it.

2 And it was told the house of David,
saying, Syria t is. confederate with Ephraim.
And his heart was moved, and the heart of
his people, as the trees of the wood are
moved with the wind.

3 Then said the Lord unto Isaiah, Go
forth now to meet Ahaz, thou, '•and ||Shear-
jashub thy son, at the end of the "conduit of
the upper pool in the || highway of the ful-
ler's field ;

4 And say unto him. Take heed, and be
quiet; fear not, f neither be faint-hearted
for the two tails of these smoking fire-brands,
for the fierce anger of Rezin with Syria, and
of the son of Remaliah.

5 Because Syria, Ephraim, and the son of
Remaliah, have taken evil counsel against
thee, saying,

6 Let us go up against Judah, and || vex
it, and let us make a breach therein for us,
and set a king in the midst of it, even the
son of Tabeal :

7 Thus saith the Lord God, ''It shall not
stand, neither shall it come to pass.

8 «For the head of Syria is Damascus,
and the head of Damascus is Rezin; and
within threescore and five years-shall Ephraim
be broken, t that it be not a people.

9 And the head of Ephraim is Samaria,
and the head of Samaria is Remaliah's son.
