Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 1:1 - The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 1:2 - Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth!
For the LORD has spoken:
“I have nourished and brought up children,
And they have rebelled against Me;

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 1:3 - The ox knows its owner
And the donkey its master’s crib;
But Israel does not know,
My people do not consider.”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 1:4 - Alas, sinful nation,
A people laden with iniquity,
A brood of evildoers,
Children who are corrupters!
They have forsaken the LORD,
They have provoked to anger
The Holy One of Israel,
They have turned away backward.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 1:5 - Why should you be stricken again?
You will revolt more and more.
The whole head is sick,
And the whole heart faints.

There is no soundness in it,
But wounds and bruises and putrefying sores;
They have not been closed or bound up,
Or soothed with ointment.

Your cities are burned with fire;
Strangers devour your land in your presence;
And it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 1:8 - So the daughter of Zion is left as a booth in a vineyard,
As a hut in a garden of cucumbers,
As a besieged city.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 1:9 - Unless the LORD of hosts
Had left to us a very small remnant,
We would have become like Sodom,
We would have been made like Gomorrah.

You rulers of Sodom;
Give ear to the law of our God,
You people of Gomorrah:

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 1:11 - “To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices to Me?”
Says the LORD.
“I have had enough of burnt offerings of rams
And the fat of fed cattle.
I do not delight in the blood of bulls,
Or of lambs or goats.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 1:12 - “When you come to appear before Me,
Who has required this from your hand,
To trample My courts?

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 1:13 - Bring no more futile sacrifices;
Incense is an abomination to Me.
The New Moons, the Sabbaths, and the calling of assemblies—
I cannot endure iniquity and the sacred meeting.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 1:14 - Your New Moons and your appointed feasts
My soul hates;
They are a trouble to Me,
I am weary of bearing them.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 1:15 - When you spread out your hands,
I will hide My eyes from you;
Even though you make many prayers,
I will not hear.
Your hands are full of blood.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 1:16 - “Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean;
Put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes.
Cease to do evil,

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 1:17 - Learn to do good;
Seek justice,
Rebuke the oppressor;[fn]
Defend the fatherless,
Plead for the widow.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 1:18 - “Come now, and let us reason together,”
Says the LORD,
“Though your sins are like scarlet,
They shall be as white as snow;
Though they are red like crimson,
They shall be as wool.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 1:19 - If you are willing and obedient,
You shall eat the good of the land;

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 1:20 - But if you refuse and rebel,
You shall be devoured by the sword”;
For the mouth of the LORD has spoken.

It was full of justice;
Righteousness lodged in it,
But now murderers.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 1:22 - Your silver has become dross,
Your wine mixed with water.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 1:23 - Your princes are rebellious,
And companions of thieves;
Everyone loves bribes,
And follows after rewards.
They do not defend the fatherless,
Nor does the cause of the widow come before them.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 1:24 - Therefore the Lord says,
The LORD of hosts, the Mighty One of Israel,
“Ah, I will rid Myself of My adversaries,
And take vengeance on My enemies.

And thoroughly purge away your dross,
And take away all your alloy.

Which you have desired;
And you shall be embarrassed because of the gardens
Which you have chosen.

And as a garden that has no water.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 1:31 - The strong shall be as tinder,
And the work of it as a spark;
Both will burn together,
And no one shall quench them.
