Isaiah 32:2-12 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
2 Each man will be like a shelter1 from the wind and a refuge from the storm,2 like streams of water3 in the desert4 and the shadow of a great rock in a thirsty land. 3 Then the eyes of those who see will no longer be closed,5 and the ears6 of those who hear will listen. 4 The mind of the rash will know and understand,7 and the stammering tongue8 will be fluent and clear. 5 No longer will the fool9 be called noble nor the scoundrel be highly respected. 6 For the fool speaks folly,10 his mind is busy with evil:11 He practices ungodliness12 and spreads error13 concerning the LORD; the hungry he leaves empty14 and from the thirsty he withholds water. 7 The scoundrel's methods are wicked,15 he makes up evil schemes16 to destroy the poor with lies, even when the plea of the needy17 is just.18 8 But the noble man makes noble plans, and by noble deeds19 he stands.20

The Women of Jerusalem

9 You women21 who are so complacent, rise up and listen22 to me; you daughters who feel secure,23 hear what I have to say! 10 In little more than a year24 you who feel secure will tremble; the grape harvest will fail,25 and the harvest of fruit will not come. 11 Tremble,26 you complacent women; shudder, you daughters who feel secure!27 Strip off your clothes,28 put sackcloth29 around your waists. 12 Beat your breasts30 for the pleasant fields, for the fruitful vines31
