The blessings of Christ's Kingdom.
Isaiah 32:1 Lo! in righteousness, shall reign, a king, Yea, even princes, with equity, shall bear rule. Isaiah 32:2 So shall each one become, As a hiding-place from the wind, And a covert from the storm,As channels of water in a dry place, As the shadow of a massive cliff in a weary land. Isaiah 32:3 And the eyes of them who are ready to see, shall not be closed,And, the ears of them who are ready to hear, shall hearken; Isaiah 32:4 And, the heart of the hurried, shall take note of knowledge, And, the tongue of stammerers, shall make haste to speak plainly. Isaiah 32:5 A base man, shall no longer be called, noble,Nor, a knave, be named, liberal; Isaiah 32:6 For, a base man, with baseness, will speak, And, his heart, will practise iniquity,Practising profanity, And speaking, against Yahweh that which misleadeth, Emptying the soul of the hungry, And, the drink of the thirsty, he causeth to fail; Isaiah 32:7 Yea, a knave, his weapons, are wicked,He, base schemes, hath devised, To ruin the oppressed with speeches of falsehood, Even when the needy pleadeth for justice. Isaiah 32:8 But, a noble man, noble things, hath devised,And, he, upon noble things, will stand,
Desolation is foreshewn.
Isaiah 32:9 Ye women in comfort! arise, hear my voice, Ye daughters so confident, give ear to my speech: Isaiah 32:10 Some days beyond a year, ye shall be troubled, ye confident ones,For failed, hath the vintage, No, gathering, cometh in. Isaiah 32:11 Tremble, ye women in comfort, Be troubled, ye daughters so confident,Strip! and bare yourselves, and gird somewhat on your loins: Isaiah 32:12 Upon your breasts, continue smiting: For desirable fields, For fruitful vine. Isaiah 32:13 Over the soil of my people, thorns and briars, shall grow,Yea, over all houses of joy, thou city exultant! Isaiah 32:14 For, the palace, is abandoned, The tumult of the city, hath ceasedHill and watch-tower, serve as caves, unto times age-abiding, The joy of wild-asses, The pasture of flocks:
Restoration is promised to succeed.
Isaiah 32:15 Until there be poured out upon us the spirit, from on high,Then shall, the wilderness, become, garden-land, And, the garden-land, for a forest, be reckoned; Isaiah 32:16 Then shall, justice, inhabit, the wilderness, And, righteousness, in the garden-land, shall abide; Isaiah 32:17 And, the yield of righteousness, shall be, peace,And, the tillage of righteousness, quietness and confidence! to times age-abiding; Isaiah 32:18 And my people, shall dwell, In a borne of peace,and, In habitations of security, and, In resting-places of comfort. Isaiah 32:19 But it shall hail during the felling of the forest, And, in a sunken place, shall, the city, sink. Isaiah 32:20 How happy are ye who sow beside all waters,Who send forth the foot of the ox and the ass.
