Isaiah 33

NIRV 1 How terrible it will be for you, you who destroy others! Assyria, you haven't been destroyed yet. How terrible for you, you who turn against others! Others haven't turned against you yet. When you stop destroying, you will be destroyed. When you stop turning against others, others 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. NIRV 2 Lord, show us your favor. We long for you to help us. Make us strong every morning. Save us when we're in trouble. NIV 2 LORD, be gracious to us; we long for you. Be our strength every morning, our salvation in time of distress. NIRV 3 When the nations hear you thunder, they run away. When you rise up against them, they scatter. NIV 3 At the uproar of your army, the peoples flee; when you rise up, the nations scatter. NIRV 4 Nations, what you have taken in battle is destroyed. It's as if young locusts had eaten it up. Like large numbers of locusts, people rush to get it. NIV 4 Your plunder, O nations, is harvested as by young locusts; like a swarm of locusts people pounce on it. NIRV 5 The LORD is honored. He lives in heaven. He will fill Zion's people with what is fair and right. NIV 5 The LORD is exalted, for he dwells on high; he will fill Zion with his justice and righteousness. NIRV 6 He will be the firm foundation for their entire lives. He will give them all of the wisdom, knowledge and saving power they will ever need. Respect for the LORD is the key to that 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. NIRV 7 Look! Judah's brave men cry out loud in the streets. The messengers who were sent to bring peace sob bitter tears. NIV 7 Look, their brave men cry aloud in the streets; the envoys of peace weep bitterly. NIRV 8 The wide roads are deserted. No one travels on them. Our peace treaty with Assyria is broken. Those who witnessed it are looked down on. No one is respected. NIV 8 The highways are deserted, no travelers are on the roads. The treaty is broken, its witnesses are despised, no one is respected. NIRV 9 The land is filled with sadness and wastes away. Lebanon is full of shame and dries up. The rich land of Sharon is like the Arabah Desert. The trees of Bashan and Carmel drop their leaves. 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. NIRV 10 "Now I will take action," says the Lord. "Now I will be honored. Now I will be respected. NIV 10 “Now will I arise,” says the LORD. “Now will I be exalted; now will I be lifted up. NIRV 11 Assyria, your plans and actions are like straw. Your anger is a fire that will destroy you. NIV 11 You conceive chaff, you give birth to straw; your breath is a fire that consumes you. NIRV 12 The nations will be burned to ashes. They will be like bushes that are cut down and set on fire. NIV 12 The peoples will be burned to ashes; like cut thornbushes they will be set ablaze.” NIRV 13 "You nations far away, listen to what I have done! My people who are near, recognize how powerful I am! NIV 13 You who are far away, hear what I have done; you who are near, acknowledge my power! NIRV 14 The sinners in Zion are terrified. They tremble with fear. They say, 'Who of us can live through the LORD's destroying fire? Who of us can live through the fire that burns forever?' 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?” NIRV 15 A person must do what is right. He must be honest and tell the truth. He must not get rich by cheating others. His hands must not receive money from those who want special favors. He must not let his ears listen to plans to commit murder. He must close his eyes to even thinking about doing what is 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— NIRV 16 A person like that will be kept safe. It will be as if he were living on high mountains. It will be as if he were living in a mountain fort. He will have all of the food he needs. And he will never 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. NIRV 17 People of Judah, you will see the king in all of his glory and majesty. You will view his kingdom spreading far and wide. NIV 17 Your eyes will see the king in his beauty and view a land that stretches afar. NIRV 18 You will think about what used to terrify you. You will say to yourself, "Where is that chief officer of Assyria? Where is the one who forced us to send gifts to his king? Where is the officer in charge of the towers that were used when we were attacked?" 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?” NIRV 19 You won't see those proud people anymore. They spoke a strange language. None of us could understand it. NIV 19 You will see those arrogant people no more, people whose speech is obscure, whose language is strange and incomprehensible. NIRV 20 Just look at Zion! It's the city where we celebrate our regular feasts. Turn your eyes toward Jerusalem. It will be a peaceful place to live in. It will be like a tent that will never be moved. Its stakes will never be pulled up. None of its ropes will 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. NIRV 21 There the LORD will be our Mighty One. It will be like a place of wide rivers and streams. No boat with oars will travel on them. No mighty 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. NIRV 22 That's because the LORD is our judge. The LORD gives us our law. 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. NIRV 23 The ropes on your ship hang loose. The mast isn't very secure. The sail isn't spread out. But the LORD will strike the Assyrians down. Then a large amount of goods will be taken from them and divided up. Even people who are disabled will carry off what was taken. 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. NIRV 24 No one living in Zion will ever say again, "I'm sick." And the sins of those who live there 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.
