The Earth Judged
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:1 -

Look, the LORD is stripping the earth bare

and making it desolate.

He will twist its surface and scatter its inhabitants:

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:2 -

people and priest alike,

servant and master,

female servant and mistress,

buyer and seller,

lender and borrower,

creditor and debtor.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:3 -

The earth will be stripped completely bare

and will be totally plundered,

for the LORD has spoken this message.

The earth mourns and withers;

the world wastes away and withers;

the exalted people of the earth waste away.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:5 -

The earth is polluted by its inhabitants,

for they have transgressed teachings,

overstepped decrees,

and broken the permanent covenant.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:6 -

Therefore a curse has consumed the earth,

and its inhabitants have become guilty;

the earth’s inhabitants have been burned,

and only a few survive.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:7 -

The new wine mourns;

the vine withers.

All the carousers now groan.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:8 -

The joyful tambourines have ceased.

The noise of the jubilant has stopped.

The joyful lyre has ceased.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:9 -

They no longer sing and drink wine;

beer is bitter to those who drink it.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:10 -

The city of chaos is shattered;

every house is closed to entry.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:11 -

In the streets they cry[fn] for wine.

All joy grows dark;

earth’s rejoicing goes into exile.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:12 -

Only desolation remains in the city;

its gate has collapsed in ruins.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:13 -

For this is how it will be on earth

among the nations:

like a harvested olive tree,

like a gleaning after a grape harvest.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:14 -

They raise their voices, they sing out;

they proclaim in the west

the majesty of the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:15 -

Therefore, in the east honor the LORD!

In the coasts and islands of the west

honor the name of the LORD,

the God of Israel.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:16 -

From the ends of the earth we hear songs:

The Splendor of the Righteous One.

But I said, “I waste away! I waste away![fn]

Woe is me.”

The treacherous act treacherously;

the treacherous deal very treacherously.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:17 -

Panic, pit, and trap await you

who dwell on the earth.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:18 -

Whoever flees at the sound of panic

will fall into a pit,

and whoever escapes from the pit

will be caught in a trap.

For the floodgates on high are opened,

and the foundations of the earth are shaken.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:19 -

The earth is completely devastated;

the earth is split open;

the earth is violently shaken.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:20 -

The earth staggers like a drunkard

and sways like a hut.

Earth’s rebellion weighs it down,

and it falls, never to rise again.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:21 -

On that day the LORD will punish

the army of the heights in the heights

and the kings of the ground on the ground.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:22 -

They will be gathered together

like prisoners in a pit.

They will be confined to a dungeon;

after many days they will be punished.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:23 -

The moon will be put to shame

and the sun disgraced,

because the LORD of Armies will reign as king

on Mount Zion in Jerusalem,

and he will display his glory

in the presence of his elders.
