The blessings of Christ's Kingdom.
Isaiah 32:1 Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in justice. Isaiah 32:2 And a man shall be as a hiding-place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest, as streams of water in a dry place, as the shade of a great rock in a weary land. Isaiah 32:3 And the eyes of them that see shall not be dim, and the ears of them that hear shall hearken. Isaiah 32:4 And the heart of the rash shall understand knowledge, and the tongue of the stammerers shall be ready to speak plainly. Isaiah 32:5 The fool shall be no more called noble, nor the churl said to be bountiful. Isaiah 32:6 For the fool will speak folly, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise profaneness, and to utter error against Jehovah, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and to cause the drink of the thirsty to fail. Isaiah 32:7 And the instruments of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the meek with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right. Isaiah 32:8 But the noble deviseth noble things; and in noble things shall he continue.
Desolation is foreshewn.
Isaiah 32:9 Rise up, ye women that are at ease, [and] hear my voice; ye careless daughters, give ear unto my speech. Isaiah 32:10 For days beyond a year shall ye be troubled, ye careless women; for the vintage shall fail, the ingathering shall not come. Isaiah 32:11 Tremble, ye women that are at ease; be troubled, ye careless ones; strip you, and make you bare, and gird [sackcloth] upon your loins. Isaiah 32:12 They shall smite upon the breasts for the pleasant fields, for the fruitful vine. Isaiah 32:13 Upon the land of my people shall come up thorns and briers; yea, upon all the houses of joy in the joyous city. Isaiah 32:14 For the palace shall be forsaken; the populous city shall be deserted; the hill and the watch-tower shall be for dens for ever, a joy of wild asses, a pasture of flocks;
Restoration is promised to succeed.
Isaiah 32:15 until the Spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness become a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be esteemed as a forest. Isaiah 32:16 Then justice shall dwell in the wilderness; and righteousness shall abide in the fruitful field. Isaiah 32:17 And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness, quietness and confidence for ever. Isaiah 32:18 And my people shall abide in a peaceable habitation, and in safe dwellings, and in quiet resting-places. Isaiah 32:19 But it shall hail in the downfall of the forest; and the city shall be utterly laid low. Isaiah 32:20 Blessed are yet that sow beside all waters, that send forth the feet of the ox and the ass.
