Isaiah 22

The prophet lamenteth the invasion of Jewry by the Persians.

Isaiah 22:1 The heuy burthen, apon the valley of Visions. What hast thou there to do, that thou clymnest vp in to the house toppe, Isaiah 22:2 o thou citie of miracles, sedicious and wilfull? seinge, thy slayne me are nether killed wt swerde, ner deed in batel? Isaiah 22:3 For all thy captaynes gat them to their horses from the ordinaunce, yee they are altogether rydden awaye, and fled farre of. Isaiah 22:4 When I perceaued yt, I sayde: awaye fro me, yt I maye wepe bytterly. Take no laboure for to coforte me, as touchinge the destruction of my people. Isaiah 22:5 For this is ye daye of the LORDE of hoostes, wherin he will plage, treade downe, and wede out the valley of Visios, and breake downe the walles, with soch a crack, that it shal geue a sownde in the mountaynes. Isaiah 22:6 I sawe the Elamites take the quyuers to carte and to horse, and that the walles were bare from harnesse. Isaiah 22:7 Thy goodly valleys were ful of Charettes, the horse men made them soone to besege the gates.

He reproveth their human wisdom and worldly joy.

Isaiah 22:8 Then was the coueringe of Iuda put from thence, and then was sene the sege of the tymbre house. Isaiah 22:9 There shal ye se the riftes in the walles of the cite of Dauid, wherof there shalbe many. Ye shal gather together the waters of the lower pole, Isaiah 22:10 and tel the houses of Ierusale, and break of some of the to kepe ye walles. Isaiah 22:11 And ye shal make a pyt betwyxte ye twayne walles of the water of the olde pole, and nothinge regarde him, that toke it in honde and made it. Isaiah 22:12 And at the same tyme shal ye LORDE of hoostes cal me to wepinge mourninge, to baldnesse and puttinge on of sack clothe. Isaiah 22:13 But they to fulfil their lust and wilfulnes, slaugter oxe, they kyll shepe, they eate costly meate, & drynke wyne: let vs eate and drinke, tomorow we shal die. Isaiah 22:14 Neuertheles whe the LORDE of hoostes herde of it, he sayde: yee, yf this wickednes of yours shalbe remitted, ye must die for it. This hath ye LORDE God of hoostes spoken.

He prophesieth Shebna's deprivation,

Isaiah 22:15 Thus sayeth the LORDE God of hoostes: Go in to the treasury vnto Sobna the gouernoure, and saye vnto him: Isaiah 22:16 What hast thou here to do? & from whece comest thou? that thou hast made the a graue here? For he had caused a costly tombe of stone to be made for himself, and a place to lye in to be hewen out of a rock. Isaiah 22:17 Beholde the LORDE shal cast the out by violence, he will deck the of another fashion, and put vpon the a straunge clothe. Isaiah 22:18 He shal carie ye in to a farre coutre, like a ball with his hondes, There shalt thou die, there shal the pompe of thy charettes haue an ende: thou vylleyne of the house of thy LORDE: Isaiah 22:19 I wil shute the out of thine office, and put the from thine estate.

and Eliakim prefiguring the Kingdom of Christ, his substitution.

Isaiah 22:20 After this wil I cal my seruaunt Eliakim, ye sonne of Helkia, Isaiah 22:21 and araye him with thy cote, and gyrde him with thy gyrdle, and I wil geue thy power in to his honde He shalbe a father of the citisens of Ierusalem, and of the Kynred of Iuda. Isaiah 22:22 I will also laye the keye of Dauids house vpon his shulders, and yf he open, no man shal shit, and yf he do shyt, no man shal open. Isaiah 22:23 I wil fasten him to a nale in the place of the most hie faithfulnesse, and he shalbe vpon the glorius trone of his fathers house. Isaiah 22:24 They shal hage vpon him all the glory of his fathers house, of the children and childers childre, all apparel small and great, all instrumentes of measure & musike. Isaiah 22:25 This shal come to passe, (saieth the LORDE of hoostes) when the nale, yt is fastened to the place of the highest faithfulnesse: shalbe pluckt of, And whe the weight that hangeth vpon it, shal fall, be broken, and hewen in peces. For the LORDE himself hath sayde it.
