Isaiah 33

The LORD Is Exalted

1Woe to thee that spoylest, and wast not spoyled: and doest wickedly, and they did not wickedly against thee: when thou shalt cease to spoyle, thou shalt be spoyled: when thou shalt make an ende of doing wickedly, they shall doe wickedly against thee.

2O Lorde, haue mercie vpon vs, wee haue waited for thee: be thou, which waste their arme in the morning, our helpe also in time of trouble.

3At the noise of the tumult, the people fled: at thine exalting the nations were scattered.

4And your spoyle shall be gathered like the gathering of caterpillers: and he shall go against him like the leaping of grashoppers.

5The Lorde is exalted: for hee dwelleth on hie: he hath filled Zion with iudgement & iustice.

6And there shall be stabilitie of thy times, strength, saluation, wisdome and knowledge: for the feare of the Lord shalbe his treasure.

7Behold, their messengers shal cry without, and ye ambassadours of peace shal weepe bitterly.

8The pathes are waste: the wayfaring man ceaseth: hee hath broken the couenant: hee hath contemned the cities: he regarded no man.

9The earth mourneth & fainteth: Lebanon is ashamed, and hewen downe: Sharon is like a wildernes, and Bashan is shaken and Carmel.

10Now will I arise, saith the Lord: now will I be exalted, now will I lift vp my selfe.

11Ye shall conceiue chaffe, and bring forth stubble: the fire of your breath shall deuoure you.

12And the people shall be as the burning of lime: and as the thornes cut vp, shall they be burnt in the fire.

13Heare, yee that are farre off, what I haue done, and ye that are neere, know my power.

14The sinners in Zion are afraide: a feare is come vpon the hypocrites: who among vs shall dwel with the deuouring fire? who among vs shall dwell with the euerlasting burnings?

15Hee that walketh in iustice, and speaketh righteous things, refusing gaine of oppression, shaking his handes from taking of gifts, stopping his eares from hearing of blood, and shutting his eyes from seeing euill.

16He shall dwell on hie: his defence shall be the munitions of rockes: bread shalbe giuen him, and his waters shalbe sure.

17Thine eyes shall see the King in his glory: they shall beholde the lande farre off.

18Thine heart shall meditate feare, Where is the scribe? where is the receiuer? where is hee that counted the towres?

19Thou shalt not see a fierce people, a people of a darke speache, that thou canst not perceiue, and of a stammering tongue that thou canst not vnderstande.

20Looke vpon Zion the citie of our solemne feastes: thine eyes shall see Ierusalem a quiet habitation, a Tabernacle that can not be remooued: and the stakes thereof can neuer be taken away, neither shall any of the cordes thereof be broken.

21For surely there the mightie Lorde will be vnto vs, as a place of floods and broade riuers, whereby shall passe no shippe with oares, neither shall great shippe passe thereby.

22For the Lorde is our Iudge, the Lord is our lawe giuer: the Lord is our King, he will saue vs.

23Thy cordes are loosed: they could not wel strengthen their maste, neither coulde they spread the saile: then shall the praye be deuided for a great spoile: yea, the lame shal take away the pray.

24And none inhabitant shall say, I am sicke: the people that dwell therein, shall haue their iniquitie forgiuen.
