Isaiah 1


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.
1:2 Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the LORD hath
 spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have
 rebelled against me.
1:3 The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master's crib:
 [but] Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider.
1:4 Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of
 evil-doers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken
 the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel to anger,
 they are gone away backward.
1:5 Why should ye be stricken any more? ye will revolt more and
 more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.
1:6 From the sole of the foot even to the head [there is] no
 soundness in [it]; [but] wounds, and bruises, and putrifying
 sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither
 mollified with ointment.
1:7 Your country [is] desolate, your cities [are] burned with
 fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and [it
 is] desolate, as overthrown by strangers.
1:8 And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard,
 as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city.
1:9 Except the LORD of hosts had left to us a very small
 remnant, we should have been as Sodom; we should have been like
 Gomorrah.
1:10 Hear the word of the LORD, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear to
 the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.
1:11 To what purpose [is] the multitude of your sacrifices to
 me? saith the LORD: I am full of the burnt-offerings of rams,
 and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of
 bullocks, or of lambs, or of he-goats.
1:12 When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at
 your hand, to tread my courts?
1:13 Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination to
 me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I
 cannot endure; [it is] iniquity, even the solemn meeting.
1:14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth:
 they are a trouble to me; I am weary to bear [them].
1:15 And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide my eyes
 from you: yes, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your
 hands are full of blood.
1:16 Wash ye, make yourselves clean; put away the evil of your
 doings from before my eyes; cease to do evil;
1:17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed,
 judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD:
 though your sins are as scarlet, they shall be white as snow,
 though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
1:19 If ye are willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of
 the land:
1:20 But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the
 sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken [it].
1:21 How is the faithful city become a harlot! it was full of
 judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.
1:22 Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water:
1:23 Thy princes [are] rebellious, and companions of thieves:
 every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge
 not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come to
 them.
1:24 Therefore saith the LORD, the LORD of hosts, the mighty One
 of Israel, Ah, I will ease me of my adversaries, and avenge me
 of my enemies:
1:25 And I will turn my hand upon thee, and thoroughly purge
 away thy dross, and take away all thy tin:
1:26 And I will restore thy judges as at the first, and thy
 counselors as at the beginning: afterward thou shalt be called,
 The city of righteousness, the faithful city.
1:27 Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with
 righteousness.
1:28 And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners
 [shall be] together, and they that forsake the LORD shall be
 consumed.
1:29 For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which ye have
 desired, and ye shall be confounded for the gardens that ye
 have chosen.
1:30 For ye shall be as an oak whose leaf fadeth, and as a
 garden that hath no water.
1:31 And the strong shall be as tow, and the maker of it as a
 spark, and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench
 [them].
