The great confusion which cometh by sin.
Isaiah 3:1 For lo! the Lord, Yahweh of hosts, removing from Jerusalem and from Judah, The stay and staff,The whole stay of bread, And the whole stay of water: Isaiah 3:2 Man of might, and man of war,Judge and prophet, And diviner and elder; Isaiah 3:3 Captain of fifty, and favourite; And counselor, and skilled artificer, And master of magical formulas; Isaiah 3:4 And I will appoint, boys, to be their princes,And, petulant children, shall rule over them, Isaiah 3:5 And the people, will tyrannise, Every man over his fellow-man, And every man over his friend,And they will rage, The boy, against, the elder, And, the despised, against, the honourable, Isaiah 3:6 When a man, shall lay hold, on his brother, of the house of his father, [saying]Clothing, hast thou, Become thou our, ruler, This downfall, be under thy hand. Isaiah 3:7 He will swear, in that day, sayingI will take no control, When, in mine own house, is neither food nor clothing,Ye must not set me, for a ruler of people! Isaiah 3:8 For stumbled, hath Jerusalem, and, Judah, hath fallen,Because, their tongue and their doings, are against Yahweh, Provoking his glorious, presence.
The impudency of the people.
Isaiah 3:9 The show of their face, hath answered against them, And, their sinlike Sodom, have they told, they have not concealed it. Alas for their souls! For, they, have requited, to, themselves, calamity. Isaiah 3:10 Say ye to the righteous, It is well! For, the fruit of their doings, shall they eat: Isaiah 3:11 Alas! for the lawless, it is ill, For, what his own hand hath matured, shall be done to him.
The oppression and covetousness of the rulers.
Isaiah 3:12 My people! children, are their tyrants, And, women, rule over them,My people! they who should lead thee forward, are causing thee to stray, Thy pathways, have they destroyed. Isaiah 3:13 Yahweh, hath taken his station to plead,And is standing to judge peoples: Isaiah 3:14 Yahweh, into judgment, will enter, With the elders of his people, And their princes,But, ye, have consumed the vineyard, That which hath been robbed from the oppressed, is in your houses. Isaiah 3:15 What right have ye to crush my people, And, the faces of the oppressed, to grind? Demandeth My Lord, Yahweh of hostsAnd Yahweh saith
The judgments which shall be for the pride of the women.
Isaiah 3:16 Because haughty, are the daughters of Zion, And they walk with neck thrown back, and wanton eyes,Tripping along as they go, And, with their feet, making, a tinkling sound, Isaiah 3:17 Therefore will My Lord, smite with leprosy, the crown of hair of the daughters of Zion,And, as for Yahweh, their shame, will he lay bare! Isaiah 3:18 In that day, will My Lord remove the fineryof the anklets, and the little suns, and the little moons; Isaiah 3:19 the pendants, and the bracelets, and the veils; Isaiah 3:20 the chaplets, and the armlets, and the girdles, and the scent-cases, and the amulets; Isaiah 3:21 the rings, and the nose-jewels; Isaiah 3:22 the robes, and the over-tunics, and the cloaks, and the purses; Isaiah 3:23 and the mirrors, and the linen wraps, and the tiaras, and the cloaks. Isaiah 3:24 And it shall come to pass-That, instead of fragrance, a putrid odour, shall be, And, instead of a girdle, an encircling rope, And, instead of braided hair, baldness, And, instead of a festal robe, a girding of sackcloth, Branding instead of beauty: Isaiah 3:25 Thy males, by the sword shall fall,And, thy mighty men, by the war; Isaiah 3:26 And her gates shall mourn and lament,And, forsaken, on the ground, shall she sit.
