Book 23 Isaiah 001:001 The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem, in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah. 001:002 Hear, heavens, and listen, earth; for Yahweh has spoken: I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me. 001:003 The ox knows his owner, and the donkey his master's crib; but Israel doesn't know, my people don't consider. 001:004 Ah sinful nation, a people loaded with iniquity, a seed of evil doers, children who deal corruptly! They have forsaken Yahweh. They have despised the Holy One of Israel. They are estranged and backward. 001:005 Why should you be beaten more, that you revolt more and more? The whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. 001:006 From the sole of the foot even to the head there is no soundness in it: wounds, welts, and open sores. They haven't been closed, neither bandaged, neither soothed with oil. 001:007 Your country is desolate. Your cities are burned with fire. Strangers devour your land in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers. 001:008 The daughter of Zion is left like a shelter in a vineyard, like a hut in a field of melons, like a besieged city. 001:009 Unless Yahweh of Armies had left to us a very small remnant, we would have been as Sodom; we would have been like Gomorrah. 001:010 Hear the word of Yahweh, you rulers of Sodom! Listen to the law of our God, you people of Gomorrah! 001:011 "What are the multitude of your sacrifices to me?," says Yahweh. "I have had enough of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed animals. I don't delight in the blood of bulls, or of lambs, or of male goats. 001:012 When you come to appear before me, who has required this at your hand, to trample my courts? 001:013 Bring no more vain offerings. Incense is an abomination to me; new moons, Sabbaths, and convocations: I can't bear with evil assemblies. 001:014 My soul hates your New Moons and your appointed feasts. They are a burden to me. I am weary of bearing them. 001:015 When you spread forth your hands, I will hide my eyes from you. Yes, when you make many prayers, I will not hear. Your hands are full of blood. 001:016 Wash yourselves, make yourself clean. Put away the evil of your doings from before my eyes. Cease to do evil. 001:017 Learn to do well. Seek justice. Relieve the oppressed. Judge the fatherless. Plead for the widow." 001:018 "Come now, and let us reason together," says Yahweh: "Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow. Though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. 001:019 If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land; 001:020 but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured with the sword; for the mouth of Yahweh has spoken it." 001:021 How the faithful city has become a prostitute! She was full of justice; righteousness lodged in her, but now murderers. 001:022 Your silver has become dross, your wine mixed with water. 001:023 Your princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves. Everyone loves bribes, and follows after rewards. They don't judge the fatherless, neither does the cause of the widow come to them. 001:024 Therefore the Lord, Yahweh of Armies, the Mighty One of Israel, says: "Ah, I will get relief from my adversaries, and avenge myself of my enemies; 001:025 and I will turn my hand on you, thoroughly purge away your dross, and will take away all your tin. 001:026 I will restore your judges as at the first, and your counselors as at the beginning...
