Isaiah 33

DBY 1 Woe to thee that spoilest, and thou wast not spoiled; and that dealest treacherously, and they dealt not treacherously with thee! When thou shalt cease to spoil, thou shalt be spoiled; when thou shalt make an end of dealing treacherously, they shall deal treacherously with thee. 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. DBY 2 Jehovah, be gracious unto us; we have waited for thee: be their arm every morning, yea, our salvation in the time of trouble. NIV 2 LORD, be gracious to us; we long for you. Be our strength every morning, our salvation in time of distress. DBY 3 At the noise of the tumult the peoples fled; at the lifting up of thyself the nations were scattered. NIV 3 At the uproar of your army, the peoples flee; when you rise up, the nations scatter. DBY 4 And your spoil shall be gathered [like] the gathering of the caterpillar: as the running of locusts shall they run upon it. NIV 4 Your plunder, O nations, is harvested as by young locusts; like a swarm of locusts people pounce on it. DBY 5 Jehovah is exalted; for he dwelleth on high: he hath filled Zion with justice and righteousness; NIV 5 The LORD is exalted, for he dwells on high; he will fill Zion with his justice and righteousness. DBY 6 and he shall be the stability of thy times, the riches of salvation, wisdom and knowledge: the fear of Jehovah shall be your 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. DBY 7 Behold, their valiant ones cry without; the messengers of peace weep bitterly. NIV 7 Look, their brave men cry aloud in the streets; the envoys of peace weep bitterly. DBY 8 The highways are desolate, the wayfaring man ceaseth. He hath broken the covenant, he hath despised the cities, he regardeth no man. NIV 8 The highways are deserted, no travelers are on the roads. The treaty is broken, its witnesses are despised, no one is respected. DBY 9 The land mourneth, it languisheth; Lebanon is ashamed, is withered; the Sharon is become as a desert, and Bashan and Carmel are stripped. 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. DBY 10 Now will I arise, saith Jehovah; now will I be exalted, now will I lift up myself. NIV 10 “Now will I arise,” says the LORD. “Now will I be exalted; now will I be lifted up. DBY 11 Ye shall conceive dry grass, ye shall bring forth stubble: your breath shall devour you [as] fire. NIV 11 You conceive chaff, you give birth to straw; your breath is a fire that consumes you. DBY 12 And the peoples shall be [as] burnings of lime, [as] thorns cut up shall they be burned in the fire. NIV 12 The peoples will be burned to ashes; like cut thornbushes they will be set ablaze.” DBY 13 Hear, ye that are far off, what I have done; and ye that are near, acknowledge my might. NIV 13 You who are far away, hear what I have done; you who are near, acknowledge my power! DBY 14 The sinners in Zion are afraid; trembling hath surprised the hypocrites: Who among us shall dwell with the consuming fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting flames? 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?” DBY 15 -- He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from taking hold of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing 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— DBY 16 he shall dwell on high, the fortresses of the rocks shall be his high retreat; bread shall be given him, his water shall be sure. 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. DBY 17 Thine eyes shall see the King in his beauty; they shall behold the land that is far off. NIV 17 Your eyes will see the king in his beauty and view a land that stretches afar. DBY 18 Thy heart shall meditate on terror: Where is the scribe? where is the receiver? where is he that counted the 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?” DBY 19 Thou shalt no more see the fierce people, a people of a deeper speech than thou canst comprehend, of a stammering tongue that cannot be understood. NIV 19 You will see those arrogant people no more, people whose speech is obscure, whose language is strange and incomprehensible. DBY 20 Look upon Zion, the city of our solemnities: thine eyes shall see Jerusalem a quiet habitation, a tent that shall not be removed, the stakes whereof shall never be pulled up, neither shall any of its cords 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. DBY 21 but there Jehovah is unto us glorious, -- a place of rivers, of broad streams: no galley with oars shall go there, neither shall gallant ship pass thereby. 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. DBY 22 For Jehovah is our judge, Jehovah, our lawgiver, Jehovah, 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. DBY 23 Thy tacklings are loosed; they strengthen not the socket of their mast, they cannot spread the sail: then is the prey of a great spoil divided; the lame take the prey. 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. DBY 24 And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven [their] iniquity. NIV 24 No one living in Zion will say, “I am ill”; and the sins of those who dwell there will be forgiven.
