Isaiah 33

NCV 1 How terrible it will be for you who destroy others but have not been destroyed yet. How terrible it will be for you, traitor, whom no one has turned against yet. When you stop destroying, others will destroy you. When you stop turning against others, they will turn against you. NIV 1 Woe to you, destroyer, you who have not been destroyed! Woe to you, betrayer, you who have not been betrayed! When you stop destroying, you will be destroyed; when you stop betraying, you will be betrayed. NCV 2 Lord, be kind to us. We have waited for your help. Give us strength every morning. Save us when we are in trouble. — NIV 2 LORD, be gracious to us; we long for you. Be our strength every morning, our salvation in time of distress. NCV 3 Your powerful voice makes people run away in fear; your greatness causes the nations to run away. NIV 3 At the uproar of your army, the peoples flee; when you rise up, the nations scatter. NCV 4 Like locusts, your enemies will take away the things you stole in war. Like locusts rushing about, they will take your wealth. NIV 4 Your plunder, O nations, is harvested as by young locusts; like a swarm of locusts people pounce on it. NCV 5 The Lord is very great, and he lives in a high place. He fills Jerusalem with fairness and justice. NIV 5 The LORD is exalted, for he dwells on high; he will fill Zion with his justice and righteousness. NCV 6 He will be your safety. He is full of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge. Respect for the Lord is the greatest treasure. NIV 6 He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the LORD is the key to this treasure. NCV 7 See, brave men are crying out in the streets; those who tried to bring peace are crying loudly. NIV 7 Look, their brave men cry aloud in the streets; the envoys of peace weep bitterly. NCV 8 There is no one on the roads, no one walking in the paths. People have broken the agreements they made. They refuse to believe the proof from witnesses. No one respects other people. NIV 8 The highways are deserted, no travelers are on the roads. The treaty is broken, its witnesses are despised, no one is respected. NCV 9 The land is sick and dying; Lebanon is ashamed and dying. The Plain of Sharon is dry like the desert, and the trees of Bashan and Carmel are dying. NIV 9 The land dries up and wastes away, Lebanon is ashamed and withers; Sharon is like the Arabah, and Bashan and Carmel drop their leaves. NCV 10 The Lord says, "Now, I will stand up and show my greatness. Now, I will become important to the people. NIV 10 “Now will I arise,” says the LORD. “Now will I be exalted; now will I be lifted up. NCV 11 You people do useless things that are like hay and straw. A destructive wind will burn you like fire. NIV 11 You conceive chaff, you give birth to straw; your breath is a fire that consumes you. NCV 12 People will be burned until their bones become like lime; they will burn quickly like dry thornbushes." NIV 12 The peoples will be burned to ashes; like cut thornbushes they will be set ablaze.” NCV 13 You people in faraway lands, hear what I have done. You people who are near me, learn about my power. NIV 13 You who are far away, hear what I have done; you who are near, acknowledge my power! NCV 14 The sinners in Jerusalem are afraid; those who are separated from God shake with fear. They say, "Can any of us live through this fire that destroys? Who can live near this fire that burns on and on?" NIV 14 The sinners in Zion are terrified; trembling grips the godless: “Who of us can dwell with the consuming fire? Who of us can dwell with everlasting burning?” NCV 15 A person who does what is right and speaks what is right, who refuses to take money unfairly, who refuses to take money to hurt others, who does not listen to plans of murder, who refuses to think about evil -- NIV 15 Those who walk righteously and speak what is right, who reject gain from extortion and keep their hands from accepting bribes, who stop their ears against plots of murder and shut their eyes against contemplating evil— NCV 16 this is the kind of person who will be safe. He will be protected as he would be in a high, walled city. He will always have bread, and he will not run out of water. NIV 16 they are the ones who will dwell on the heights, whose refuge will be the mountain fortress. Their bread will be supplied, and water will not fail them. NCV 17 Your eyes will see the king in his beauty. You will see the land that stretches far away. NIV 17 Your eyes will see the king in his beauty and view a land that stretches afar. NCV 18 You will think about the terror of the past: "Where is that officer? Where is the one who collected the taxes? Where is the officer in charge of our defense towers?" NIV 18 In your thoughts you will ponder the former terror: “Where is that chief officer? Where is the one who took the revenue? Where is the officer in charge of the towers?” NCV 19 No longer will you see those proud people from other countries, whose strange language you couldn't understand. NIV 19 You will see those arrogant people no more, people whose speech is obscure, whose language is strange and incomprehensible. NCV 20 Look at Jerusalem, the city of our festivals. Look at Jerusalem, that beautiful place of rest. It is like a tent that will never be moved; the pegs that hold her in place will never be pulled up, and her ropes will never be broken. NIV 20 Look on Zion, the city of our festivals; your eyes will see Jerusalem, a peaceful abode, a tent that will not be moved; its stakes will never be pulled up, nor any of its ropes broken. NCV 21 There the Lord will be our Mighty One. That land is a place with streams and wide rivers, but there will be no enemy boats on those rivers; no powerful ship will sail on them. NIV 21 There the LORD will be our Mighty One. It will be like a place of broad rivers and streams. No galley with oars will ride them, no mighty ship will sail them. NCV 22 This is because the Lord is our judge. The Lord makes our laws. The Lord is our king. He will save us. NIV 22 For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; it is he who will save us. NCV 23 You sailors from other lands, hear: The ropes on your boats hang loose. The mast is not held firm. The sails are not spread open. Then your great wealth will be divided. There will be so much wealth that even the crippled people will carry off a share. NIV 23 Your rigging hangs loose: The mast is not held secure, the sail is not spread. Then an abundance of spoils will be divided and even the lame will carry off plunder. NCV 24 No one living in Jerusalem will say, "I am sick." The people who live there will have their sins forgiven. NIV 24 No one living in Zion will say, “I am ill”; and the sins of those who dwell there will be forgiven.
