Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 27:6 - 28:13; 29:22-23

 

6  Those who come He causes to take root in Yaʽaqoḇ, Yisra'ĕl shall blossom and bud. And they shall fill the face of the world with fruit.

7  Has He smitten him as He smote those who were smiting him? Or were they slain as those they had killed?

8  In measure, by sending her away, You contended with her. He shall take away by His rough wind in the day of the east wind.

9  Therefore by this the wickedness of Yaʽaqoḇ is covered. And this is all the fruit of taking away his sin: when he makes all the stones of the altar like chalkstones that are beaten to dust - Ashĕrim and sun-pillars rise no more.

10  For the city of defence is lonely, a home forsaken and left like a wilderness - there the calf feeds, and there it lies down, and shall consume its branches.

11  When its twigs are dry, they are broken off, women come and light them on fire. For it is a people of no understanding, therefore He who made them has no compassion on them, and He who formed them shows them no favour.

12  And in that day it shall be that יהוה threshes, from the channel of the River to the wadi of Mitsrayim. And you shall be gathered one by one, O children of Yisra'ĕl. 

13  And in that day it shall be that a great horn is blown, and those who were perishing in the land of Ashshur and the outcasts in the land of Mitsrayim shall come, and shall worship יהוה on the qodesh mountain, in Yerushalayim.

Yeshayahu 28

1  Woe to the proud crown of the drunkards of Ephrayim, and to the fading flower of its splendid comeliness that is on the head of the fertile valley, to those who are overcome with wine!

2  See, יהוה has one who is mighty and strong, like a downpour of hail and a destroying storm, like a flood of mighty waters overflowing, who casts down to the earth with the hand.

3  The proud crown of the drunkards of Ephrayim, is trampled under foot;

4  and the fading flower of its splendid comeliness that is on the head of the fertile valley, like the first fruit before the summer, which, when one sees it, he eats it up while it is still in his hand.

5  In that day יהוה of hosts is for a crown of splendour and a head-dress of comeliness to the remnant of His people,

6  and a spirit of Right-Ruling to him who sits in Right-Ruling, and strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate.

7  And these too have gone astray through wine, and through strong drink wandered about. Kohen and nabi have gone astray through strong drink, they are swallowed up by wine, they wander about through strong drink, they go astray in vision, they stumble in Right-Ruling.

8  For all tables shall be covered with vomit, no place without filth.

9  Whom would He teach knowledge? And whom would He make to understand the message? Those weaned from milk, those taken from the breasts!

10  For it is: command upon command, command upon command, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little.

11  For with a jabbering lip and a foreign tongue He speaks to this people,

12  to whom He said, "This is the rest, give rest to the weary," and, "This is the refreshing." But they would not hear.

13  But the Word of יהוה was to them, "Command upon command, command upon command, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, there a little," so that they go and shall stumble backward, and be broken and snared and taken captive.


Isaiah 29:22-23

22  Therefore thus said יהוה, who ransomed Aḇraham, concerning the house of Yaʽaqoḇ, "Yaʽaqoḇ is no longer put to shame, no longer does his face grow pale.

23  "For when he sees his children, the work of My hands, in his midst, they shall qadosh My Name, and qadosh the Qadosh One of Yaʽaqoḇ, and revere the Elohim of Yisra'ĕl.
