Book 12 : NEVIIM - ISAIAH - Chapter 024


Behold, HaShem maketh the earth empty and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof


And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the creditor, so with the debtor


The earth shall be utterly emptied, and clean despoiled; for HaShem hath spoken this word


The earth fainteth and fadeth away, the world faileth and fadeth away, the lofty people of the earth do fail


The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, violated the statute, broken the everlasting covenant


Therefore hath a curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are found guilty; therefore the inhabitants of the earth waste away, and men are left few


The new wine faileth, the vine fadeth; all the merry-hearted do sigh


The mirth of tabrets ceaseth, the noise of them that rejoice endeth, the joy of the harp ceaseth


They drink not wine with a song; strong drink is bitter to them that drink it


Broken down is the city of wasteness; every house is shut up, that none may come in


There is a crying in the streets amidst the wine; all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone


In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten unto ruin


For thus shall it be in the midst of the earth, among the peoples, as at the beating of an olive-tree, as at the gleanings when the vintage is done


Those yonder lift up their voice, they sing for joy; for the majesty of HaShem they shout from the sea


'Therefore glorify ye HaShem in the regions of light, even the name of HaShem, the G-d of Israel, in the isles of the sea.


From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs: 'Glory to the righteous.' But I say: I waste away, I waste away, woe is me! The treacherous deal treacherously; yea, the treacherous deal very treacherously


Terror, and the pit, and the trap, are upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth


And it shall come to pass, that he who fleeth from the noise of the terror shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the trap; for the windows on high are opened, and the foundations of the earth do shake


The earth is broken, broken down, the earth is crumbled in pieces, the earth trembleth and tottereth


The earth reeleth to and fro like a drunken man, and swayeth to and fro as a lodge; and the transgression thereof is heavy upon it, and it shall fall, and not rise again


And it shall come to pass in that day, that HaShem will punish the host of the high heaven on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth


And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the dungeon, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be punished


Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed; for HaShem of hosts will reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before His elders shall be Glory
