God's merciful restoration of Israel.
Isaiah 14:1 For Yahweh, will have compassion, on Jacob, And will yet, choose Israel, And will give them rest upon their own soil,And the sojourner, shall join himself, unto them, And they shall attach themselves unto the house of Jacob; Isaiah 14:2 And peoples, shall take them, and bring them into their own place, And the house of Israel shall possess themselves of them, upon the soil of Yahweh, for servants and for handmaids,Thus shall they be taking captive their captors, And shall tread down their oppressors. Isaiah 14:3 And it shall come to pass, in the day when Yahweh, shall give thee rest, from thy toil, and from thy disquiet,and from the hard service which had been laid upon thee,
Their triumphant insultation over Babel.
Isaiah 14:4 that thou shalt take up this taunt over the king of Babylon, and shalt say:How, hath ceased, the oppressor! Ceased, the exactress! Isaiah 14:5 Broke, hath Yahweh the staff of the lawless,The sceptre of despots; Isaiah 14:6 Smiting peoples in passion, With stroke unremitting,Trampling, in anger, on nations, Persecution unhindered. Isaiah 14:7 Quiet, at rest, the whole earth,Men have burst into shouting! Isaiah 14:8 Yea the pine-trees, make mirth at thee, Cedars of Lebanon, Since thou wast laid low, No feller hath come up against us! Isaiah 14:9 Hades, beneath, is excited about thee, To meet thine arrival,Rousing up, for thee, Shades, All the he-goats of earth! Maketh rise from their thrones, All the kings of the nations. Isaiah 14:10 All of them, answer, and say to thee,Thou too, made strengthless, as we! Unto us, art thou like! Isaiah 14:11 Brought down to Hades, thy pride, The hum of thy harps, Beneath thee, is spread out corruption, And, thy coverletworms! Isaiah 14:12 How, hast thou fallen from heaven, O Shining OneSon of the Dawn! Hewn down to the earth, O crusher of nations! Isaiah 14:13 Yet, thou, didst say in thy heartThe heavens, will I ascend, Above the stars of GOD, will I lift up my throne,That I may sit in the Mount of Assembly, In the Recesses of the North: Isaiah 14:14 I will mount on the hills of the clouds, I will match the Most High! Isaiah 14:15 Howbeit, to Hades, shalt thou be brought down,To the Recesses of the Pit! Isaiah 14:16 They who see thee, upon thee, will gaze, Upon thee, will thoughtfully muse,Is this, the man who startled the earth? Who terrified kingdoms? Isaiah 14:17 Who made the world like a desert? And, its cities, brake down? Its prisoners, he loosed not, Each one to his home? Isaiah 14:18 All the kings of the nationsthey all, are lying in state, Each one in his crypt; Isaiah 14:19 But, thou, art flung out from thy grave, Like a scion detested, Beshrouded with slain, the pierced of the sword, Like a carcase trod underfoot: Isaiah 14:20 As for them who go down to the stones of the Pit, Thou shalt not be united with them in burial; For, thy land, thou didst ruin, Thy people, didst slay,Unnamed to times ago-abiding, Be the seed of the wicked! Isaiah 14:21 Preparefor his sonsshambles, For the iniquity of their fathers,They shall not rise, nor possess the earth, Nor fill the face of the world with cities. Isaiah 14:22 I will rise, Then, against them, Declareth Yahweh of hosts,And will cut off from Babylon, Record and remnant, And scion and seed, Declareth Yahweh. Isaiah 14:23 And will make her a possession for the bittern, And marshes of water,And will sweep it with the besom of destruction, Declareth Yahweh of hosts.
God's purpose against Assyria.
Isaiah 14:24 Yahweh of hosts, hath sworn, saying,Surely, as I intended, so, hath it come to pass, And, as I purposed, the same, shall stand: Isaiah 14:25 That I will break in pieces the Assyrian, in my land, Yea, upon my mountains, will I tread him underfoot,So shall be removed from off them, his yoke, And, his burden, from off their shoulder, shall be removed. Isaiah 14:26 This, is the purpose that is purposed upon all the earth,And, this, the hand outstretched over all the nations; Isaiah 14:27 For, Yahweh of hosts, hath purposed,And who, shall frustrate? And, his, is the hand outstretched, And who, shall turn it back? Isaiah 14:28 In the year that King Ahaz died, came this oracle:
Palestina is threatened.
Isaiah 14:29 Do not rejoice, Philistia, any of thee, In that the rod of him that smote thee, is broken,For, out of the root of the serpent, shall come forth, a viper, And his fruit be a fiery dragon that flieth. Isaiah 14:30 Then shall feed, the firstborn of the poor, And, the needy, in confidence, lie down,And I will kill with famine thy root, And, thy residue, shall be slain. Isaiah 14:31 HowlO gate, Make outcryO city, Dispersed art thou, Philistia, all of thee,For, out of the north, a smoke cometh in, With no, straggler in his ranks. Isaiah 14:32 What, then, shall one answer the messengers of a nation? That, Yahweh, hath founded Zion, And, in her, shall seek refuge, the oppressed of his people.
