The vision of Yesha`yahu the son of Amotz, which he saw concerning Yehudah and Yerushalayim, in the days of `Uzziyah, Yotam, Achaz, and Hizkiyahu, kings of Yehudah.
Hear, heavens, And listen, eretz; for the LORD has spoken: I have nourished and brought up children, And they have rebelled against me.
The ox knows his owner, And the donkey his master's crib; But Yisra'el doesn't know, My people don't consider.
Ah sinful nation, A people laden with iniquity, A seed of evil-doers, Children who deal corruptly! They have forsaken the LORD. They have despised the Holy One of Yisra'el. They are estranged and backward.
Why should you be beaten more, That you revolt more and more? The whole head is sick, And the whole heart faint.
From the sole of the foot even to the head there is no soundness in it: Wounds, welts, and open sores. They haven't been closed, neither bandaged, neither soothed with oil.
