Isaiah 32

RHE 1 Behold a king shall reign in justice, and princes shall rule in judgment. NIV 1 See, a king will reign in righteousness and rulers will rule with justice. RHE 2 And a man shall be as when one is hid from the wind, and hideth himself from a storm, as rivers of waters in drought, and the shadow of a rock that standeth out in a desert land. NIV 2 Each one will be like a shelter from the wind and a refuge from the storm, like streams of water in the desert and the shadow of a great rock in a thirsty land. RHE 3 The eyes of them that see shall not be dim, and the ears of them that hear shall hearken diligently. NIV 3 Then the eyes of those who see will no longer be closed, and the ears of those who hear will listen. RHE 4 And the heart of fools shall understand knowledge, and the tongue of stammerers shall speak readily and plain. NIV 4 The fearful heart will know and understand, and the stammering tongue will be fluent and clear. RHE 5 The fool shall no more be called prince: neither shall the deceitful be called great: NIV 5 No longer will the fool be called noble nor the scoundrel be highly respected. RHE 6 For the fool will speak foolish things, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, and speak to the Lord deceitfully, and to make empty the soul of the hungry, and take away drink from the thirsty. NIV 6 For fools speak folly, their hearts are bent on evil: They practice ungodliness and spread error concerning the LORD; the hungry they leave empty and from the thirsty they withhold water. RHE 7 The vessels of the deceitful are most wicked: for he hath framed devices to destroy the meek, with lying words, when the poor man speaketh judgment. NIV 7 Scoundrels use wicked methods, they make up evil schemes to destroy the poor with lies, even when the plea of the needy is just. RHE 8 But the prince will devise such things as are worthy of a prince, and he shall stand above the rulers. NIV 8 But the noble make noble plans, and by noble deeds they stand. RHE 9 Rise up, ye rich women, and hear my voice: ye confident daughters, give ear to my speech. NIV 9 You women who are so complacent, rise up and listen to me; you daughters who feel secure, hear what I have to say! RHE 10 For after days and a year, you that are confident shall be troubled: for the vintage is at an end, the gathering shall come no more. NIV 10 In little more than a year you who feel secure will tremble; the grape harvest will fail, and the harvest of fruit will not come. RHE 11 Be astonished, ye rich women, be troubled, ye confident ones: strip you, and be confounded, gird your loins. NIV 11 Tremble, you complacent women; shudder, you daughters who feel secure! Strip off your fine clothes and wrap yourselves in rags. RHE 12 Mourn for your breasts, for the delightful country, for the fruitful vineyard. NIV 12 Beat your breasts for the pleasant fields, for the fruitful vines RHE 13 Upon the land of my people shall thorns and briers come up: how much more upon all the houses of joy, of the city that rejoiced? NIV 13 and for the land of my people, a land overgrown with thorns and briers— yes, mourn for all houses of merriment and for this city of revelry. RHE 14 For the house is forsaken, the multitude of the city is left, darkness and obscurity are come upon its dens for ever. A joy of wild asses, the pastures of flocks. NIV 14 The fortress will be abandoned, the noisy city deserted; citadel and watchtower will become a wasteland forever, the delight of donkeys, a pasture for flocks, RHE 15 Until the spirit be poured upon us from on high: and the desert shall be as a charmel, and charmel shall be counted for a forest. NIV 15 till the Spirit is poured on us from on high, and the desert becomes a fertile field, and the fertile field seems like a forest. RHE 16 An judgment shall dwell in the wilderness, and justice shall sit in charmel. NIV 16 The LORD’s justice will dwell in the desert, his righteousness live in the fertile field. RHE 17 And the work of justice shall be peace, and the service of justice quietness, and security for ever. NIV 17 The fruit of that righteousness will be peace; its effect will be quietness and confidence forever. RHE 18 And my people shall sit in the beauty of peace, and in the tabernacles of confidence, and in wealthy rest. NIV 18 My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undisturbed places of rest. RHE 19 But hail shall be in the descent of the forest, and the city shall be made very low. NIV 19 Though hail flattens the forest and the city is leveled completely, RHE 20 Blessed are ye that sow upon all waters, sending thither the foot of the ox and the ass. NIV 20 how blessed you will be, sowing your seed by every stream, and letting your cattle and donkeys range free.
