Isaiah 33

GNT 1 Our enemies are doomed! They have robbed and betrayed, although no one has robbed them or betrayed them. But their time to rob and betray will end, and they themselves will become victims of robbery and treachery. 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. GNT 2 Lord, have mercy on us. We have put our hope in you. Protect us day by day and save us in times of trouble. NIV 2 LORD, be gracious to us; we long for you. Be our strength every morning, our salvation in time of distress. GNT 3 When you fight for us, nations run away from the noise of battle. NIV 3 At the uproar of your army, the peoples flee; when you rise up, the nations scatter. GNT 4 Their belongings are pounced upon and taken as loot. NIV 4 Your plunder, O nations, is harvested as by young locusts; like a swarm of locusts people pounce on it. GNT 5 How great the Lord is! He rules over everything. He will fill Jerusalem with justice and integrity NIV 5 The LORD is exalted, for he dwells on high; he will fill Zion with his justice and righteousness. GNT 6 and give stability to the nation. He always protects his people and gives them wisdom and knowledge. Their greatest treasure is their reverence for the Lord. 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. GNT 7 The brave are calling for help. The ambassadors who tried to bring about peace are crying bitterly. NIV 7 Look, their brave men cry aloud in the streets; the envoys of peace weep bitterly. GNT 8 The highways are so dangerous that no one travels on them. Treaties are broken and agreements are violated. No one is respected any more. NIV 8 The highways are deserted, no travelers are on the roads. The treaty is broken, its witnesses are despised, no one is respected. GNT 9 The land lies idle and deserted. The forests of Lebanon have withered, the fertile valley of Sharon is like a desert, and in Bashan and on Mount Carmel the leaves are falling from the trees. 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. GNT 10 The Lord says to the nations, "Now I will act. I will show how powerful I am. NIV 10 “Now will I arise,” says the LORD. “Now will I be exalted; now will I be lifted up. GNT 11 You make worthless plans and everything you do is useless. My spirit is like a fire that will destroy you. NIV 11 You conceive chaff, you give birth to straw; your breath is a fire that consumes you. GNT 12 You will crumble like rocks burned to make lime, like thorns burned to ashes. NIV 12 The peoples will be burned to ashes; like cut thornbushes they will be set ablaze.” GNT 13 Let everyone near and far hear what I have done and acknowledge my power." NIV 13 You who are far away, hear what I have done; you who are near, acknowledge my power! GNT 14 The sinful people of Zion are trembling with fright. They say, "God's judgment is like a fire that burns forever. Can any of us survive a fire like that?" 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?” GNT 15 You can survive if you say and do what is right. Don't use your power to cheat the poor and don't accept bribes. Don't join with those who plan to commit murder or to do other evil things. 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— GNT 16 Then you will be safe; you will be as secure as if in a strong fortress. You will have food to eat and water to drink. 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. GNT 17 Once again you will see a king ruling in splendor over a land that stretches in all directions. NIV 17 Your eyes will see the king in his beauty and view a land that stretches afar. GNT 18 Your old fears of foreign tax collectors and spies will be only a memory. 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?” GNT 19 You will no longer see any arrogant foreigners who speak a language that you can't understand. NIV 19 You will see those arrogant people no more, people whose speech is obscure, whose language is strange and incomprehensible. GNT 20 Look at Zion, the city where we celebrate our religious festivals. Look at Jerusalem! What a safe place it will be to live in! It will be like a tent that is never moved, whose pegs are never pulled up and whose ropes never break. 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. GNT 21 The Lord will show us his glory. We will live beside broad rivers and streams, but hostile ships will not 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. GNT 22 All the rigging on those ships is useless; the sails cannot be spread! We will seize all the wealth of enemy armies, and there will be so much that even the lame can get a share. The Lord himself will be our king; he will rule over us and protect 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. GNT 24 No one who lives in our land will ever again complain of being sick, and all sins will be forgiven. NIV 24 No one living in Zion will say, “I am ill”; and the sins of those who dwell there will be forgiven.
