Isaiah 24


24:1 Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it
 waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad its
 inhabitants.
24:2 And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as
 with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with
 her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with
 the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of
 interest, so with the giver of interest to him.
24:3 The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for
 the LORD hath spoken this word.
24:4 The earth mourneth [and] fadeth away, the world languisheth
 [and] fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish.
24:5 The earth also is defiled under its inhabitants; because
 they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken
 the everlasting covenant.
24:6 Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that
 dwell in it are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the
 earth are burned, and few men left.
24:7 The new wine mourneth, the vine languisheth, all the
 merry-hearted do sigh.
24:8 The mirth of tabrets ceaseth, the noise of them that
 rejoice endeth, the joy of the harp ceaseth.
24:9 They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink shall
 be bitter to them that drink it.
24:10 The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut
 up, that no man may enter.
24:11 [There] is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy is
 darkened, the mirth of the land is gone.
24:12 In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten
 with destruction.
24:13 When thus it shall be in the midst of the land among the
 people, [there shall be] as the shaking of an olive-tree, [and]
 as the gleaning grapes when the vintage is done.
24:14 They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the
 majesty of the LORD, they shall cry aloud from the sea.
24:15 Wherefore glorify ye the LORD in the fires, [even] the
 name of the LORD God of Israel in the isles of the sea.
24:16 From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs,
 [even] glory to the righteous. But I said, My leanness, my
 leanness, woe to me! the treacherous dealers have dealt
 treacherously; yes, the treacherous dealers have dealt very
 treacherously.
24:17 Fear, and the pit, and the snare, [are] upon thee, O
 inhabitant of the earth.
24:18 And it shall come to pass, [that] he who fleeth from the
 noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh
 up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for
 the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the
 earth do shake.
24:19 The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is entirely
 dissolved, the earth is exceedingly moved.
24:20 The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall
 be removed like a cottage; and the transgression of it shall be
 heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.
24:21 And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the LORD
 shall punish the host of the high ones [that are] on high, and
 the kings of the earth upon the earth.
24:22 And they shall be gathered, [as] prisoners are gathered in
 the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many
 days shall they be visited.
24:23 Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed,
 when the LORD of hosts shall reign on mount Zion, and in
 Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.
