Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:1 - Lo, for righteousness doth a king reign, As to princes, for judgment they rule.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:2 - And each hath been as a hiding-place from wind, And as a secret hiding-place from inundation, As rivulets of waters in a dry place, As a shadow of a heavy rock in a weary land.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:3 - And not dazzled are the eyes of beholders, And the ears of hearers do attend.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:4 - And the heart of those hastened Understandeth to know, And the tongue of stammerers hasteth to speak clearly.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:5 - A fool is no more called 'noble,' And to a miser it is not said, 'rich;'
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:6 - For a fool speaketh folly, And his heart doth iniquity, to do profanity, And to speak concerning Jehovah error, To empty the soul of the hungry, Yea, drink of the thirsty he causeth to lack.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:7 - And the miser -- his instruments are evil, He hath counselled wicked devices, To corrupt the poor with lying sayings, Even when the needy speaketh justly.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:8 - And the noble counselled noble things, And he for noble things riseth up.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:9 - Women, easy ones, rise, hear my voice, Daughters, confident ones, give ear to my saying,
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:10 - Days and a year ye are troubled, O confident ones, For consumed hath been harvest, The gathering cometh not.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:11 - Tremble ye women, ye easy ones, Be troubled, ye confident ones, Strip and make bare, with a girdle on the loins,
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:12 - For breasts they are lamenting, For fields of desire, for the fruitful vine.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:13 - Over the ground of my people thorn -- brier goeth up, Surely over all houses of joy of the exulting city,
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:14 - Surely the palace hath been left, The multitude of the city forsaken, Fort and watch-tower hath been for dens unto the age, A joy of wild asses -- a pasture of herds;
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:15 - Till emptied out on us is the Spirit from on high, And a wilderness hath become a fruitful field, And the fruitful field for a forest is reckoned.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:16 - And dwelt in the wilderness hath judgment, And righteousness in the fruitful field remaineth.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:17 - And a work of the righteousness hath been peace, And a service of the righteousness -- Keeping quiet and confidence unto the age.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:18 - And dwelt hath My people in a peaceful habitation, And in stedfast tabernacles, And in quiet resting-places.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:19 - And it hath hailed in the going down of the forest, And in the valley is the city low.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 32:20 - Happy are ye sowing by all waters, Sending forth the foot of the ox and the ass!
