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 has spoken, I have
nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me.
1:3 The ox knows his owner, and the ass his master's crib: but Israel does
not know, my people does not consider.
1:4 Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers,
children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked
the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.
1:5 Why should all of you be stricken any more? all of you will revolt more
and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.
1:6 From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in
it; but wounds, and bruises, and rotting 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 unto us a very small remnant, we should
have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.
1:10 Hear the word of the LORD, all of you rulers of Sodom; give ear unto
the law of our God, all of you people of Gomorrah.
1:11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? says 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 all of you come to appear before me, who has required this at your
hand, to tread my courts?
1:13 Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the
new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is
iniquity, even the solemn meeting.
1:14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hates: they are a trouble
unto me; I am weary to bear them.
1:15 And when all of you spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from
you: yea, when all of you make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are
full of blood.
1:16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before
mine 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, says the LORD: though your sins
be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson,
they shall be as wool.
1:19 If all of you be willing and obedient, all of you shall eat the good
of the land:
1:20 But if all of you refuse and rebel, all of you shall be devoured with
the sword: for the mouth of the LORD has spoken it.
1:21 How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment;
righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.
1:22 Your silver is become dross, your wine mixed with water:
1:23 Your princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loves
gifts, and follows after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither does
the cause of the widow come unto them.
1:24 Therefore says the LORD, the LORD of hosts, the mighty One of Israel,
Ah, I will ease me of mine adversaries, and avenge me of mine enemies:
1:25 And I will turn my hand upon you, and thoroughly purge away your dross,
and take away all your tin:
1:26 And I will restore your judges as at the first, and your counsellors
as at the beginning: afterward you shall 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 all of you have desired,
and all of you shall be confounded for the gardens that all of you have chosen.
1:30 For all of you shall be as an oak whose leaf fades, and as a garden
that has 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.
