The blessings of Christ's Kingdom.
Isaiah 32:1 Behold, a King shal reigne in righteousnes, and princes shal rule in iudgement. Isaiah 32:2 And a man shall be as an hiding place from the winde, and a couert from the tempest: as riuers of water in a drie place, as the shadow of a great rocke in a wearie land. Isaiah 32:3 And the eyes of them that see, shall not be dimme; and the eares of them that heare, shall hearken. Isaiah 32:4 The heart also of the rash shall vnderstand knowledge, and the tongue of the stammerers shall bee readie to speake plainely. Isaiah 32:5 The vile person shall be no more called liberall, nor the churle sayd to be bountifull. Isaiah 32:6 For the vile person wil speake villenie, and his heart will worke iniquitie, to practise hypocrisie, and to vtter errour against the LORD, to make emptie the soule of the hungry, and hee will cause the drinke of the thirstie to faile. Isaiah 32:7 The instruments also of the churle [are] euill: he deuiseth wicked deuices, to destroy the poore with lying wordes, euen when the needie speaketh right. Isaiah 32:8 But the liberall deuiseth liberall things, and by liberall things shall hee stand.
Desolation is foreshewn.
Isaiah 32:9 Rise vp ye women that are at ease: heare my voice, ye carelesse daughters, giue eare vnto my speech. Isaiah 32:10 Many dayes and yeeres shall ye be troubled, yee carelesse women: for the vintage shall faile, the gathering shall not come. Isaiah 32:11 Tremble yee women that are at ease: be troubled, ye carelesse ones, strip ye and make ye bare, and gird [sackecloth] vpon your loynes. Isaiah 32:12 They shall lament for the teats, for the pleasant fieldes, for the fruitfull vine. Isaiah 32:13 Upon the land of my people shall come vp thornes, [and] briars, yea vpon all the houses of ioy in the ioyous citie. Isaiah 32:14 Because the palaces shall be forsaken, the multitude of the citie shall be left, the forts and towres shall be for dennes for euer, a ioy of wild asses, a pasture of flockes;
Restoration is promised to succeed.
Isaiah 32:15 Untill the spirit be powred vpon vs from on high, and the wildernesse be a fruitfull field, and the fruitfull field be counted for a forrest. Isaiah 32:16 Then iudgement shall dwell in the wildernesse, and righteousnesse remaine in the fruitfull field. Isaiah 32:17 And the worke of righteousnesse shalbe peace, and the effect of righteousnesse, quietnesse and assurance for euer. Isaiah 32:18 And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places: Isaiah 32:19 When it shall haile, comming downe on the forrest; and the citie shall be low in a low place. Isaiah 32:20 Blessed [are] yee that sow beside all waters, that send forth [thither] the feete of the oxe and the asse.
