Isaiah 32 DBY

1 Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment.
2 And a man shall be as a hiding-place from the wind, and a covert from the storm; as brooks of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a thirsty land.
3 And the eyes of them that see shall not be dim, and the ears of them that hear shall hearken;
4 and the heart of the rash shall understand knowledge, and the tongue of the stammerers shall be ready to speak plainly.
5 The vile man shall be no more called noble, nor the churl a said to be bountiful:
