O Lord, Be Gracious to Us

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 33:1 - Ah, you destroyer,

you traitor,
whom none has betrayed!

you will be destroyed;

they will betray you.

Be our arm every morning,
our salvation in the time of trouble.

the traveler ceases.
Covenants are broken;
cities[fn] are despised;

trembling has seized the godless:
“Who among us can dwell with the consuming fire?
Who among us can dwell with everlasting burnings?”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 33:15 - He who walks righteously and speaks uprightly,
who despises the gain of oppressions,
who shakes his hands, lest they hold a bribe,
who stops his ears from hearing of bloodshed
and shuts his eyes from looking on evil,

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 33:16 - he will dwell on the heights;
his place of defense will be the fortresses of rocks;
his bread will be given him; his water will be sure.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 33:17 - Your eyes will behold the king in his beauty;
they will see a land that stretches afar.

“Where is he who counted, where is he who weighed the tribute?
Where is he who counted the towers?”

the people of an obscure speech that you cannot comprehend,
stammering in a tongue that you cannot understand.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 33:20 - Behold Zion, the city of our appointed feasts!
Your eyes will see Jerusalem,
an untroubled habitation, an immovable tent,
whose stakes will never be plucked up,
nor will any of its cords be broken.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 33:21 - But there the LORD in majesty will be for us
a place of broad rivers and streams,
where no galley with oars can go,
nor majestic ship can pass.

the LORD is our king; he will save us.

they cannot hold the mast firm in its place
or keep the sail spread out.
Then prey and spoil in abundance will be divided;
even the lame will take the prey.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 33:24 - And no inhabitant will say, “I am sick”;
the people who dwell there will be forgiven their iniquity.
