God Will Remove the Leaders

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 3:1 - For behold, the Lord [fn]GOD of hosts is going to remove from Jerusalem and Judah
Both [fn]supply and support, the whole [fn]supply of bread
And the whole [fn]supply of water;
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 3:2 - The mighty man and the warrior,
The judge and the prophet,
The diviner and the elder,
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 3:3 - The captain of fifty and the honorable man,
The counselor and the expert artisan,
And the skillful enchanter.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 3:4 - And I will make mere lads their princes,
And [fn]capricious children will rule over them,
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 3:5 - And the people will be oppressed,
Each one by another, and each one by his neighbor;
The youth will storm against the elder
And the inferior against the honorable.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 3:6 - When a man lays hold of his brother in his father’s house, saying,
“You have a cloak, you shall be our ruler,
And these ruins will be under your [fn]charge,”
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 3:7 - He will [fn]protest on that day, saying,
“I will not be your [fn]healer,
For in my house there is neither bread nor cloak;
You should not appoint me ruler of the people.”
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 3:8 - For Jerusalem has stumbled and Judah has fallen,
Because their [fn]speech and their actions are against the LORD,
To rebel against [fn]His glorious presence.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 3:9 - [fn]The expression of their faces bears witness against them,
And they display their sin like Sodom;
They do not even conceal it.
Woe to [fn]them!
For they have brought evil on themselves.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 3:10 - Say to the righteous that it will go well with them,
For they will eat the fruit of their actions.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 3:11 - Woe to the wicked! It will go badly with him,
For [fn]what he deserves will be done to him.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 3:12 - O My people! Their oppressors [fn]are children,
And women rule over them.
O My people! Those who guide you lead you astray
And confuse the direction of your paths.

God Will Judge

And stands to judge the people.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 3:14 - The LORD enters into judgment with the elders and princes of His people,
“It is you who have devoured the vineyard;
The plunder of the poor is in your houses.

And grinding the face of the poor?”
Declares the Lord [fn]GOD of hosts.

Judah's Women Denounced

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 3:16 - Moreover, the LORD said, “Because the daughters of Zion are proud
And walk with [fn]heads held high and seductive eyes,
And go along with mincing steps
And tinkle the bangles on their feet,
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 3:17 - Therefore the Lord will afflict the scalp of the daughters of Zion with scabs,
And the LORD will make their foreheads bare.”
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 3:18 - In that day the Lord will take away the beauty of their anklets, headbands, crescent ornaments,

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 3:23 - hand mirrors, undergarments, turbans and veils.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 3:24 - Now it will come about that instead of [fn]sweet perfume there will be putrefaction;
Instead of a belt, a rope;
Instead of well-set hair, a plucked-out scalp;
Instead of fine clothes, a donning of sackcloth;
And branding instead of beauty.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 3:25 - Your men will fall by the sword
And your [fn]mighty ones in battle.

And deserted she will sit on the ground.
