The blessings of Christ's Kingdom.
Isaiah 32:1 Lo, for righteousness doth a king reign, As to princes, for judgment they rule. Isaiah 32:2 And each hath been as a hiding-place [from] wind, And as a secret hiding-place [from] inundation, As rivulets of waters in a dry place, As a shadow of a heavy rock in a weary land. Isaiah 32:3 And not dazzled are the eyes of beholders, And the ears of hearers do attend. Isaiah 32:4 And the heart of those hastened Understandeth to know, And the tongue of stammerers hasteth to speak clearly. Isaiah 32:5 A fool is no more called 'noble,' And to a miser it is not said, 'rich;' Isaiah 32:6 For a fool speaketh folly, And his heart doth iniquity, to do profanity, And to speak concerning Jehovah error, To empty the soul of the hungry, Yea, drink of the thirsty he causeth to lack. Isaiah 32:7 And the miserhis instruments [are] evil, He hath counselled wicked devices, To corrupt the poor with lying sayings, Even when the needy speaketh justly. Isaiah 32:8 And the noble counselled noble things, And he for noble things riseth up.
Desolation is foreshewn.
Isaiah 32:9 Women, easy ones, rise, hear my voice, Daughters, confident ones, give ear [to] my saying, Isaiah 32:10 Days and a year ye are troubled, O confident ones, For consumed hath been harvest, The gathering cometh not. Isaiah 32:11 Tremble ye women, ye easy ones, Be troubled, ye confident ones, Strip and make bare, with a girdle on the loins, Isaiah 32:12 For breasts they are lamenting, For fields of desire, for the fruitful vine. Isaiah 32:13 Over the ground of my people thornbrier goeth up, Surely over all houses of joy of the exulting city, Isaiah 32:14 Surely the palace hath been left, The multitude of the city forsaken, Fort and watch-tower hath been for dens unto the age, A joy of wild assesa pasture of herds;
Restoration is promised to succeed.
Isaiah 32:15 Till emptied out on us is the Spirit from on high, And a wilderness hath become a fruitful field, And the fruitful field for a forest is reckoned. Isaiah 32:16 And dwelt in the wilderness hath judgment, And righteousness in the fruitful field remaineth. Isaiah 32:17 And a work of the righteousness hath been peace, And a service of the righteousnessKeeping quiet and confidence unto the age. Isaiah 32:18 And dwelt hath My people in a peaceful habitation, And in stedfast tabernacles, And in quiet resting-places. Isaiah 32:19 And it hath hailed in the going down of the forest, And in the valley is the city low. Isaiah 32:20 Happy [are] ye sowing by all waters, Sending forth the foot of the ox and the ass!
