Isaiah 29

NLT 1 “What sorrow awaits Ariel, the City of David. Year after year you celebrate your feasts. NIV 1 Woe to you, Ariel, Ariel, the city where David settled! Add year to year and let your cycle of festivals go on. NLT 2 Yet I will bring disaster upon you, and there will be much weeping and sorrow. For Jerusalem will become what her name Ariel means— an altar covered with blood. NIV 2 Yet I will besiege Ariel; she will mourn and lament, she will be to me like an altar hearth. NLT 3 I will be your enemy, surrounding Jerusalem and attacking its walls. I will build siege towers and destroy it. NIV 3 I will encamp against you on all sides; I will encircle you with towers and set up my siege works against you. NLT 4 Then deep from the earth you will speak; from low in the dust your words will come. Your voice will whisper from the ground like a ghost conjured up from the grave. NIV 4 Brought low, you will speak from the ground; your speech will mumble out of the dust. Your voice will come ghostlike from the earth; out of the dust your speech will whisper. NLT 5 “But suddenly, your ruthless enemies will be crushed like the finest of dust. Your many attackers will be driven away like chaff before the wind. Suddenly, in an instant, NIV 5 But your many enemies will become like fine dust, the ruthless hordes like blown chaff. Suddenly, in an instant, NLT 6 I, the LORD of Heaven’s Armies, will act for you with thunder and earthquake and great noise, with whirlwind and storm and consuming fire. NIV 6 the LORD Almighty will come with thunder and earthquake and great noise, with windstorm and tempest and flames of a devouring fire. NLT 7 All the nations fighting against Jerusalem will vanish like a dream! Those who are attacking her walls will vanish like a vision in the night. NIV 7 Then the hordes of all the nations that fight against Ariel, that attack her and her fortress and besiege her, will be as it is with a dream, with a vision in the night— NLT 8 A hungry person dreams of eating but wakes up still hungry. A thirsty person dreams of drinking but is still faint from thirst when morning comes. So it will be with your enemies, with those who attack Mount Zion.” NIV 8 as when a hungry person dreams of eating, but awakens hungry still; as when a thirsty person dreams of drinking, but awakens faint and thirsty still. So will it be with the hordes of all the nations that fight against Mount Zion. NLT 9 Are you amazed and incredulous? Don’t you believe it? Then go ahead and be blind. You are stupid, but not from wine! You stagger, but not from liquor! NIV 9 Be stunned and amazed, blind yourselves and be sightless; be drunk, but not from wine, stagger, but not from beer. NLT 10 For the LORD has poured out on you a spirit of deep sleep. He has closed the eyes of your prophets and visionaries. 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). NLT 11 All the future events in this vision are like a sealed book to them. When you give it to those who can read, they will say, “We can’t read it because 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, “Read this, please,” they will answer, “I can’t; it is sealed.” NLT 12 When you give it to those who cannot read, they will say, “We don’t know how to read.” NIV 12 Or if you give the scroll to someone who cannot read, and say, “Read this, please,” they will answer, “I don’t know how to read.” NLT 13 And so the Lord says, “These people say they are mine. They honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. And their worship of me is nothing but man-made rules learned by rote. 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 based on merely human rules they have been taught. NLT 14 Because of this, I will once again astound these hypocrites with amazing wonders. The wisdom of the wise will pass away, and the intelligence of the intelligent will disappear.” 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.” NLT 15 What sorrow awaits those who try to hide their plans from the LORD, who do their evil deeds in the dark! “The LORD can’t see us,” they say. “He doesn’t know what’s going on!” 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?” NLT 16 How foolish can you be? He is the Potter, and he is certainly greater than you, the clay! Should the created thing say of the one who made it, “He didn’t make me”? Does a jar ever say, “The potter who made me is stupid”? NIV 16 You turn things upside down, as if the potter were thought to be like the clay! Shall what is formed say to the one who formed it, “You did not make me”? Can the pot say to the potter, “You know nothing”? NLT 17 Soon—and it will not be very long— the forests of Lebanon will become a fertile field, and the fertile field will yield bountiful crops. NIV 17 In a very short time, will not Lebanon be turned into a fertile field and the fertile field seem like a forest? NLT 18 In that day the deaf will hear words read from a book, and the blind will see through the gloom and darkness. 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. NLT 19 The humble will be filled with fresh joy from the LORD . The poor will 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. NLT 20 The scoffer will be gone, the arrogant will disappear, and those who plot evil will be killed. NIV 20 The ruthless will vanish, the mockers will disappear, and all who have an eye for evil will be cut down— NLT 21 Those who convict the innocent by their false testimony will disappear. A similar fate awaits those who use trickery to pervert justice and who tell lies to destroy the innocent. NIV 21 those who with a word make someone out to be guilty, who ensnare the defender in court and with false testimony deprive the innocent of justice. NLT 22 That is why the LORD, who redeemed Abraham, says to the people of Israel, “My people will no longer be ashamed or turn pale with fear. NIV 22 Therefore this is what the LORD, who redeemed Abraham, says to the descendants of Jacob: “No longer will Jacob be ashamed; no longer will their faces grow pale. NLT 23 For when they see their many children and all the blessings I have given them, they will recognize the holiness of the Holy One of Jacob. They will stand in awe of the God of Israel. NIV 23 When they see among them their children, the work of my hands, they will keep my name holy; they will acknowledge the holiness of the Holy One of Jacob, and will stand in awe of the God of Israel. NLT 24 Then the wayward will gain understanding, and complainers will accept instruction. NIV 24 Those who are wayward in spirit will gain understanding; those who complain will accept instruction.”
