Rebellion of God's People

1 The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz concerning 1Judah and Jerusalem, which he saw during the areigns of 2Uzziah, 3Jotham, 4Ahaz and 5Hezekiah, kings of Judah. 2 6Listen, O heavens, and hear, O 7earth; For the LORD speaks, "8Sons I have reared and brought up, But they have 9revolted against Me. 3 "An ox knows its owner, And a donkey its master's manger, But Israel 10does not know, My people 11do not understand." 4 Alas, sinful nation, People weighed down with iniquity, b12Offspring of evildoers, Sons who 13act corruptly! They have 14abandoned the LORD, They have 15despised the Holy One of Israel, They have turned away cfrom Him. 5 Where will you be stricken again, As you 16continue in your rebellion? The whole head is 17sick And the whole heart is faint. 6 18From the sole of the foot even to the head There is 19nothing sound in it, Only bruises, welts and raw wounds, 20Not pressed out or bandaged, Nor softened with oil. 7 Your 21land is desolate, Your cities are burned with fire, Your fields -strangers are devouring them in your presence; It is desolation, as overthrown by strangers. 8 The daughter of Zion is left like a shelter in a vineyard, Like a watchman's hut in a cucumber field, like a besieged city. 9 22Unless the LORD of hosts Had left us a few 23survivors, We would be like 24Sodom, We would be like Gomorrah.
