Book 12 : NEVIIM - ISAIAH - Chapter 003


For, behold, the L-rd, HaShem of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah stay and staff, every stay of bread, and every stay of water


The mighty man, and the man of war; the judge, and the prophet, and the diviner, and the elder


The captain of fifty, and the man of rank, and the counsellor, and the cunning charmer, and the skilful enchanter


And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them


And the people shall oppress one another, every man his fellow, and every man his neighbour; the child shall behave insolently against the aged, and the base against the honourable


For a man shall take hold of his brother of the house of his father: 'Thou hast a mantle, be thou our ruler, and let this ruin be under thy hand.


In that day shall he swear, saying: 'I will not be a healer; for in my house is neither bread nor a mantle; ye shall not make me ruler of a people.


For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen; because their tongue and their doings are against HaShem, to provoke the eyes of His glory


The show of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have wrought evil unto themselves


Say ye of the righteous, that it shall be well with him; for they shall eat the fruit of their doings


Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him; for the work of his hands shall be done to him


As for My people, a babe is their master, and women rule over them. O My people, they that lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths


HaShem standeth up to plead, and standeth to judge the peoples


HaShem will enter into judgment with the elders of His people, and the princes thereof: 'It is ye that have eaten up the vineyard; the spoil of the poor is in your houses


What mean ye that ye crush My people, and grind the face of the poor?' saith the L-rd, the GOD of hosts


Moreover HaShem said: because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched-forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet


Therefore the L-rd will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and HaShem will lay bare their secret parts


In that day the L-rd will take away the bravery of their anklets, and the fillets, and the crescents


the pendants, and the bracelets, and the veils


the headtires, and the armlets, and the sashes, and the corselets, and the amulets


the rings, and the nose-jewels


the aprons, and the mantelets, and the cloaks, and the girdles


and the gauze robes, and the fine linen, and the turbans, and the mantles


And it shall come to pass, that instead of sweet spices there shall be rottenness; and instead of a girdle rags; and instead of curled hair baldness; and instead of a stomacher a girding of sackcloth; branding instead of beauty


Thy men shall fall by the sword, and thy mighty in the war


And her gates shall lament and mourn; and utterly bereft she shall sit upon the ground
