Yahweh Will Empty the Earth

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:1 -

Behold, Yahweh empties the earth to destruction, eviscerates it, distorts its surface, and scatters its inhabitants.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:3 - The earth will be completely emptied to destruction and completely plundered, for Yahweh has spoken this word.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:4 - The earth mourns and withers; the world languishes and withers; the exalted of the people of the earth languish.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:5 - The earth is also polluted [fn]by its inhabitants, for they trespassed laws, violated statutes, broke the everlasting covenant.

The new wine mourns;

The vine languishes;

All the glad of heart sigh.

The joy of tambourines ceases;

The rumbling of those exulting stops;

The joy of the harp ceases.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:9 -

They do not drink wine with song;

Strong drink is bitter to those who drink it.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:10 -

The city of chaos is broken down;

Every house is shut up so that none may enter.

There is an outcry in the streets concerning the wine;

All gladness [fn]turns to gloom.

The joy of the earth is taken away into exile.

Desolation remains in the city,

And the gate is struck down to ruins.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:13 -

For thus it will be in the midst of the earth among the peoples,

As the [fn]shaking of an olive tree,

As the gleanings when the grape harvest is over.

They lift up their voices, they shout for joy;

They cry out from the [fn]west concerning the majesty of Yahweh.

Therefore glorify Yahweh in the [fn]east,

The name of Yahweh, the God of Israel,

In the [fn]coastlands of the sea.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:16 -

From the ends of the earth we hear songs, “Glory to the Righteous One,”

But I say, “[fn]I waste away! [fn]I waste away! Woe is me!

The treacherous deal treacherously,

And the treacherous deal very treacherously.”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:17 -

Panic and pit and pitfall

Are upon you, O inhabitant of the earth.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:18 -

Then it will be that he who flees the sound of panic will fall into the pit,

And he who [fn]climbs out of the pit will be caught in the pitfall;

For the windows [fn]above are opened, and the foundations of the earth quake.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:19 -

The earth is broken asunder;

The earth is split through;

The earth is shaken violently.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:20 -

The earth reels to and fro like a drunkard

And it totters like a [fn]shack,

For its transgression is heavy upon it,

And it will fall, never to rise again.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:21 -

So it will be in that day,

That Yahweh will punish the host of heights on high,

And the kings of the earth on earth.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:22 -

They will be gathered together

Like prisoners in the [fn]pit,

And will be confined in prison;

And after many days they will be punished.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:23 -

Then the moon will be humiliated and the sun ashamed,

For Yahweh of hosts will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem,

And His glory will be before His elders.
