Isaiah 10:12-22 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
12 So it will be that when the Lord has completed all His 1work on Mount Zion and on Jerusalem, He will say, "I will apunish the fruit of the arrogant heart of the king of Assyria and 2the pomp of bhis haughtiness." 13 For 3he has said, "By the power of my hand and by my wisdom I did this, For I have understanding; And I 4removed the boundaries of the peoples And plundered their treasures, And like a mighty man I brought down ctheir inhabitants, 14 And my hand reached to the riches of the peoples like a 5nest, And as one gathers abandoned eggs, I gathered all the earth; And there was not one that flapped its wing or opened its beak or chirped." 15 Is the 6axe to 7boast itself over the one who chops with it? Is the saw to exalt itself over the one who wields it? That would be like 8a dclub wielding those who lift it, Or like 9a rod lifting him who is not wood. 16 Therefore the Lord, the eGOD of hosts, will send a 10wasting disease among his 11stout warriors; And under his 12glory a fire will be kindled like a burning flame. 17 And the 13light of Israel will become a fire and his 14Holy One a flame, And it will 15burn and devour his thorns and his briars in a single day. 18 And He will 16destroy the glory of his forest and of his fruitful garden, both soul and body, And it will be as when a sick man wastes away. 19 And the 17rest of the trees of his forest will be so small in number That a child could write them down.

A Remnant Will Return

20 Now in that day the 18remnant of Israel, and those of the house of Jacob 19who have escaped, will never again rely on the one who struck them, but will truly 20rely on the LORD, the Holy One of Israel. 21 A 21remnant will return, the remnant of Jacob, to the 22mighty God. 22 For 23though your people, O Israel, may be like the sand of the sea, Only a remnant within them will return; A 24destruction is determined, overflowing with righteousness.
