The blessings of Christ's Kingdom.
Isaiah 32:1 Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment. Isaiah 32:2 And a man shall be as a hiding-place from the wind, and a covert from the storm; as brooks of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a thirsty 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 vile man shall be no more called noble, nor the churl said to be bountiful: Isaiah 32:6 for the vile man will speak villainy, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, 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 The instruments also 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 to noble things doth he stand.
Desolation is foreshewn.
Isaiah 32:9 Rise up, ye women that are at ease, hear my voice; ye careless daughters, give ear unto my speech. Isaiah 32:10 In a year and [some] days 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] on your loins! Isaiah 32:12 They shall smite on the breasts [in lamentation] for the pleasant fields, for the fruitful vineyards. Isaiah 32:13 Upon the land of my people shall come up thistles [and] briars, yea, upon all the houses of joy in the joyous city. Isaiah 32:14 For the palace shall be deserted, the multitude of the city shall be forsaken; hill and watchtower shall be caves 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 counted for a forest. Isaiah 32:16 And judgment shall inhabit the wilderness, and righteousness dwell in the fruitful field. Isaiah 32:17 And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance for ever. Isaiah 32:18 And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting-places. Isaiah 32:19 And it shall hail, coming down on the forest; and the city shall be low in a low place. Isaiah 32:20 Blessed are ye that sow beside all waters, that send forth the feet of the ox and the ass.
