Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:1 - Look, a king will promote fairness; officials will promote justice.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:2 - Each of them will be like a shelter from the wind and a refuge from a rainstorm; like streams of water in a dry region and like the shade of a large cliff in a parched land.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:3 - Eyes will no longer be blind and ears will be attentive.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:4 - The mind that acts rashly will possess discernment and the tongue that stutters will speak with ease and clarity.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:5 - A fool will no longer be called honorable; a deceiver will no longer be called principled.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:6 - For a fool speaks disgraceful things; his mind plans out sinful deeds. He commits godless deeds and says misleading things about the LORD; he gives the hungry nothing to satisfy their appetite and gives the thirsty nothing to drink.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:7 - A deceiver's methods are evil; he dreams up evil plans to ruin the poor with lies, even when the needy are in the right.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:8 - An honorable man makes honorable plans; his honorable character gives him security.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:9 - You complacent women, get up and listen to me! You carefree daughters, pay attention to what I say!
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:10 - In a year's time you carefree ones will shake with fear, for the grape harvest will fail, and the fruit harvest will not arrive.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:11 - Tremble, you complacent ones! Shake with fear, you carefree ones! Strip off your clothes and expose yourselves - put sackcloth on your waist!
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:12 - Mourn over the field, over the delightful fields and the fruitful vine!
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:13 - Mourn over the land of my people, which is overgrown with thorns and briers, and over all the once-happy houses in the city filled with revelry.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:14 - For the fortress is neglected; the once-crowded city is abandoned. Hill and watchtower are permanently uninhabited. Wild donkeys love to go there, and flocks graze there.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:15 - This desolation will continue until new life is poured out on us from heaven. Then the desert will become an orchard and the orchard will be considered a forest.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:16 - Justice will settle down in the desert and fairness will live in the orchard.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:17 - Fairness will produce peace and result in lasting security.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:18 - My people will live in peaceful settlements, in secure homes, and in safe, quiet places.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:19 - Even if the forest is destroyed and the city is annihilated,
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:20 - you will be blessed, you who plant seed by all the banks of the streams, you who let your ox and donkey graze.
