Isaiah 3


3:1 For behold, the LORD, the LORD of hosts, doth take away from
 Jerusalem and from Judah the rod and the staff, the whole
 support of bread, and the whole support of water,
3:2 The mighty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the
 prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient,
3:3 The captain of fifty, and the honorable man, and the
 counselor, and the skillful artificer, and the eloquent orator.
3:4 And I will give children [to be] their princes, and babes
 shall rule over them.
3:5 And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and
 every one by his neighbor: the child shall behave himself
 proudly against the elder, and the base against the honorable.
3:6 When a man shall take hold of his brother of the house of
 his father, [saying], Thou hast clothing, be thou our ruler,
 and [let] this ruin [be] under thy hand:
3:7 In that day shall he swear, saying, I will not be a healer;
 for in my house [is] neither bread nor clothing: make me not a
 ruler of the people.
3:8 For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen: because their
 tongue and their doings [are] against the LORD, to provoke the
 eyes of his glory.
3:9 The show of their countenance doth witness against them; and
 they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide [it] not. Woe to
 their soul! for they have rewarded evil to themselves.
3:10 Say ye to the righteous, that [it shall be] well [with
 him]: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.
3:11 Woe to the wicked! [it shall be] ill [with him]: for the
 reward of his hands shall be given him.
3:12 [As for] my people, children [are] their oppressors, and
 women rule over them. O my people, they who lead thee cause
 [thee] to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.
3:13 The LORD standeth up to plead, and standeth to judge the
 people.
3:14 The LORD will enter into judgment with the elders of his
 people, and with their princes: for ye have eaten up the
 vineyard; the spoil of the poor [is] in your houses.
3:15 What mean ye [that] ye beat my people to pieces, and grind
 the faces of the poor? saith the LORD God of hosts.
3:16 Moreover the LORD saith, Because the daughters of Zion are
 haughty, and walk with extended necks and wanton eyes, walking
 and mincing [as] they go, and making a tinkling with their
 feet:
3:17 Therefore the LORD will smite with a scab the crown of the
 head of the daughters of Zion, and the LORD will uncover their
 secret parts.
3:18 In that day the LORD will take away the show of [their]
 tinkling ornaments [about their feet], and [their] cauls, and
 [their] round tires like the moon.
3:19 The chains, and the bracelets, and the mufflers,
3:20 The bonnets, and the ornaments of the legs, and the
 head-bands, and the tablets, and the ear-rings,
3:21 The rings, and nose-jewels,
3:22 The changeable suits of apparel, and the mantles, and the
 wimples, and the crisping-pins,
3:23 The glasses, and the fine linen, and the hoods, and the
 vails.
3:24 And it shall come to pass, [that] instead of sweet smell
 there shall be an offensive odor; and instead of a girdle a
 rent; and instead of well set hair baldness; and instead of a
 stomacher a girding of sackcloth; [and] burning instead of
 beauty.
3:25 Thy men shall fall by the sword, and thy mighty in the war.
3:26 And her gates shall lament and mourn; and she [being]
 desolate, shall sit upon the ground.
