Isaiah 30:10-20 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
10 Who say to the 1seers, "You must not see visions"; And to the prophets, "You must not 2prophesy to us what is right, 3Speak to us apleasant words, Prophesy illusions. 11 "Get out of the way, 4turn aside from the path, b5Let us hear no more about the Holy One of Israel." 12 Therefore thus says the Holy One of Israel, "6Since you have rejected this word And have put your trust in 7oppression and guile, and have relied on them, 13 Therefore this 8iniquity will be to you Like a 9breach about to fall, A bulge in a high wall, Whose collapse comes 10suddenly in an instant, 14 Whose collapse is like the smashing of a 11potter's jar, cSo ruthlessly shattered That a sherd will not be found among its pieces To dtake fire from a hearth Or to scoop water from a cistern." 15 For thus the Lord eGOD, the Holy One of Israel, has said, "In frepentance and 12rest you will be saved, In 13quietness and trust is your strength." But you were not willing, 16 And you said, "No, for we will flee on 14horses," Therefore you shall flee! "And we will ride on swift horses," Therefore those who pursue you shall be swift. 17 15One thousand will flee at the threat of one man; You will flee at the threat of five, Until you are left as a gflag on a mountain top And as a signal on a hill.

God Is Gracious and Just

18 Therefore the LORD h16longs to be gracious to you, And therefore He iwaits on 17high to have compassion on you. For the LORD is a 18God of justice; How blessed are all those who j19long for Him. 19 kO people in Zion, 20inhabitant in Jerusalem, you will 21weep no longer. He will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry; when He hears it, He will 22answer you. 20 Although the Lord has given you 23bread of privation and water of oppression, He, your Teacher will no longer 24hide Himself, but your eyes will behold your Teacher.
