Isaiah 29:9-19

RHE 9 Be astonished, and wonder, waver, and stagger: be drunk, and not with wine: stagger, and not with drunkenness. NIV 9 Be stunned and amazed, blind yourselves and be sightless; be drunk, but not from wine, stagger, but not from beer. RHE 10 For the Lord hath mingled for you the spirit of a deep sleep, he will shut up your eyes, he will cover your prophets and princes, that see visions. NIV 10 The LORD has brought over you a deep sleep: He has sealed your eyes (the prophets); he has covered your heads (the seers). RHE 11 And the vision of all shall be unto you as the words of a book that is sealed which when they shall deliver to one that is learned, they shall say: Read this: and he shall answer: I cannot, for it is sealed. NIV 11 For you this whole vision is nothing but words sealed in a scroll. And if you give the scroll to someone who can read, and say to him, "Read this, please," he will answer, "I can't; it is sealed." RHE 12 And the book shall be given to one that knoweth no letters, and it shall be said to him: Read: and he shall answer: I know no letters. NIV 12 Or if you give the scroll to someone who cannot read, and say, "Read this, please," he will answer, "I don't know how to read." RHE 13 And the Lord said: Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips glorify me, but their heart is far from me, and they have feared me with the commandment and doctrines of men: NIV 13 The Lord says: "These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is made up only of rules taught by men. RHE 14 Therefore behold I will proceed to cause an admiration in this people, by a great and wonderful miracle: for wisdom shall perish from their wise men, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid. NIV 14 Therefore once more I will astound these people with wonder upon wonder; the wisdom of the wise will perish, the intelligence of the intelligent will vanish." RHE 15 Woe to you that are deep of heart, to hide your counsel from the Lord: and their works are in the dark, and they say: Who seeth us, and who knoweth us? NIV 15 Woe to those who go to great depths to hide their plans from the LORD, who do their work in darkness and think, "Who sees us? Who will know?" RHE 16 This thought of yours is perverse: as if the clay should think against the potter, and the work should say to the maker thereof: Thou madest me not: or the thing framed should say to him that fashioned it: Thou understandest not. NIV 16 You turn things upside down, as if the potter were thought to be like the clay! Shall what is formed say to him who formed it, "He did not make me"? Can the pot say of the potter, "He knows nothing"? RHE 17 Is it not yet a very little while, and Libanus shall be turned into charmel, and charmel shall be esteemed as a forest? NIV 17 In a very short time, will not Lebanon be turned into a fertile field and the fertile field seem like a forest? RHE 18 And in that day the deaf shall hear the words of the book, and out of darkness and obscurity the eyes of the blind shall see. NIV 18 In that day the deaf will hear the words of the scroll, and out of gloom and darkness the eyes of the blind will see. RHE 19 And the meek shall increase their joy in the Lord, and the poor men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel. NIV 19 Once more the humble will rejoice in the LORD; the needy will rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.
