Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 29:1 - “What sorrow awaits Ariel,[fn] the City of David.
Year after year you celebrate your feasts.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 29:2 - Yet I will bring disaster upon you,
and there will be much weeping and sorrow.
For Jerusalem will become what her name Ariel means—
an altar covered with blood.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 29:3 - I will be your enemy,
surrounding Jerusalem and attacking its walls.
I will build siege towers
and destroy it.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 29:4 - Then deep from the earth you will speak;
from low in the dust your words will come.
Your voice will whisper from the ground
like a ghost conjured up from the grave.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 29:5 - “But suddenly, your ruthless enemies will be crushed
like the finest of dust.
Your many attackers will be driven away
like chaff before the wind.
Suddenly, in an instant,

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 29:6 - I, the LORD of Heaven’s Armies, will act for you
with thunder and earthquake and great noise,
with whirlwind and storm and consuming fire.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 29:7 - All the nations fighting against Jerusalem[fn]
will vanish like a dream!
Those who are attacking her walls
will vanish like a vision in the night.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 29:8 - A hungry person dreams of eating
but wakes up still hungry.
A thirsty person dreams of drinking
but is still faint from thirst when morning comes.
So it will be with your enemies,
with those who attack Mount Zion.”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 29:9 - Are you amazed and incredulous?
Don’t you believe it?
Then go ahead and be blind.
You are stupid, but not from wine!
You stagger, but not from liquor!

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 29:10 - For the LORD has poured out on you a spirit of deep sleep.
He has closed the eyes of your prophets and visionaries.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 29:11 - All the future events in this vision are like a sealed book to them. When you give it to those who can read, they will say, “We can’t read it because it is sealed.”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 29:12 - When you give it to those who cannot read, they will say, “We don’t know how to read.”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 29:13 - And so the Lord says,
“These people say they are mine.
They honor me with their lips,
but their hearts are far from me.
And their worship of me
is nothing but man-made rules learned by rote.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 29:14 - Because of this, I will once again astound these hypocrites
with amazing wonders.
The wisdom of the wise will pass away,
and the intelligence of the intelligent will disappear.”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 29:15 - What sorrow awaits those who try to hide their plans from the LORD,
who do their evil deeds in the dark!
“The LORD can’t see us,” they say.
“He doesn’t know what’s going on!”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 29:16 - How foolish can you be?
He is the Potter, and he is certainly greater than you, the clay!
Should the created thing say of the one who made it,
“He didn’t make me”?
Does a jar ever say,
“The potter who made me is stupid”?

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 29:17 - Soon—and it will not be very long—
the forests of Lebanon will become a fertile field,
and the fertile field will yield bountiful crops.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 29:18 - In that day the deaf will hear words read from a book,
and the blind will see through the gloom and darkness.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 29:19 - The humble will be filled with fresh joy from the LORD.
The poor will rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 29:20 - The scoffer will be gone,
the arrogant will disappear,
and those who plot evil will be killed.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 29:21 - Those who convict the innocent
by their false testimony will disappear.
A similar fate awaits those who use trickery to pervert justice
and who tell lies to destroy the innocent.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 29:22 - That is why the LORD, who redeemed Abraham, says to the people of Israel,[fn]
“My people will no longer be ashamed
or turn pale with fear.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 29:23 - For when they see their many children
and all the blessings I have given them,
they will recognize the holiness of the Holy One of Israel.
They will stand in awe of the God of Jacob.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 29:24 - Then the wayward will gain understanding,
and complainers will accept instruction.
NLT Footnotes
Ariel sounds like a Hebrew term that means “hearth” or “altar.”
Hebrew Ariel.
Greek version reads Their worship is a farce, / for they teach man-made ideas as commands from God. Compare Mark 7:7.
Hebrew of Jacob. See note on 14:1.
