A Reign of Righteousness
Women of Jerusalem Warned

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:1 - Behold, a king will reign in righteousness,
And princes will rule with justice.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:2 - A man will be as a hiding place from the wind,
And a cover from the tempest,
As rivers of water in a dry place,
As the shadow of a great rock in a weary land.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:3 - The eyes of those who see will not be dim,
And the ears of those who hear will listen.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:4 - Also the heart of the rash will understand knowledge,
And the tongue of the stammerers will be ready to speak plainly.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:5 - The foolish person will no longer be called generous,
Nor the miser said to be bountiful;

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:6 - For the foolish person will speak foolishness,
And his heart will work iniquity:
To practice ungodliness,
To utter error against the LORD,
To keep the hungry unsatisfied,
And he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:7 - Also the schemes of the schemer are evil;
He devises wicked plans
To destroy the poor with lying words,
Even when the needy speaks justice.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:8 - But a generous man devises generous things,
And by generosity he shall stand.
Consequences of Complacency

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:9 - Rise up, you women who are at ease,
Hear my voice;
You complacent daughters,
Give ear to my speech.

You will be troubled, you complacent women;
For the vintage will fail,
The gathering will not come.

Be troubled, you complacent ones;
Strip yourselves, make yourselves bare,
And gird sackcloth on your waists.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:12 - People shall mourn upon their breasts
For the pleasant fields, for the fruitful vine.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:13 - On the land of my people will come up thorns and briers,
Yes, on all the happy homes in the joyous city;

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:14 - Because the palaces will be forsaken,
The bustling city will be deserted.
The forts and towers will become lairs forever,
A joy of wild donkeys, a pasture of flocks—

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:15 - Until the Spirit is poured upon us from on high,
And the wilderness becomes a fruitful field,
And the fruitful field is counted as a forest.
The Peace of God’s Reign

And righteousness remain in the fruitful field.

And the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever.

In secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places,

And the city is brought low in humiliation.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:20 - Blessed are you who sow beside all waters,
Who send out freely the feet of the ox and the donkey.
