Isaiah - Chapters 23-42

23:1: The burden of Tyre. Howl, you ships of Tarshish; for it is laid waste, so that there is no house, no entering in: from the land of Kittim it is revealed to them.
23:2: Be still, you inhabitants of the coast, you whom the merchants of Sidon, that pass over the sea, have replenished.
23:3: On great waters the seed of the Shihor, the harvest of the Nile, was her revenue; and she was the market of nations.
23:4: Be ashamed, Sidon; for the sea has spoken, the stronghold of the sea, saying, I have not travailed, nor brought forth, neither have I nourished young men, nor brought up virgins.
23:5: When the report comes to Egypt, they shall be sorely pained at the report of Tyre.
23:6: Pass over to Tarshish; wail, you inhabitants of the coast.
23:7: Is this your joyous [city], whose antiquity is of ancient days, whose feet carried her afar off to sojourn?
23:8: Who has purposed this against Tyre, the giver of crowns, whose merchants are princes, whose traffickers are the honorable of the earth?
23:9: Yahweh of hosts has purposed it, to stain the pride of all glory, to bring into contempt all the honorable of the earth.
23:10: Pass through your land as the Nile, daughter of Tarshish; there is no restraint any more.
23:11: He has stretched out his hand over the sea, he has shaken the kingdoms: Yahweh has given commandment concerning Canaan, to destroy the strongholds of it.
23:12: He said, You shall no more rejoice, you oppressed virgin daughter of Sidon: arise, pass over to Kittim; even there shall you have no rest.
23:13: Behold, the land of the Chaldeans: this people was not; the Assyrian founded it for those who dwell in the wilderness; they set up their towers; they overthrew the palaces of it; they made it a ruin.
23:14: Howl, you ships of Tarshish; for your stronghold is laid waste.
23:15: It shall come to pass in that day, that Tyre shall be forgotten seventy years, according to the days of one king: after the end of seventy years it shall be to Tyre as in the song of the prostitute.
23:16: Take a harp, go about the city, you prostitute that has been forgotten; make sweet melody, sing many songs, that you may be remembered.
23:17: It shall happen after the end of seventy years, that Yahweh will visit Tyre, and she shall return to her hire, and shall play the prostitute with all the kingdoms of the world on the surface of the earth.
23:18: Her merchandise and her hire shall be holiness to Yahweh: it shall not be treasured nor laid up; for her merchandise shall be for those who dwell before Yahweh, to eat sufficiently, and for durable clothing.

24:1: Behold, Yahweh makes the earth empty, and makes it waste, and turns it upside down, and scatters abroad the inhabitants of it.
24:2: 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 creditor, so with the debtor; as with the taker of interest, so with the giver of interest to him.
24:3: The earth shall be utterly emptied, and utterly laid waste; for Yahweh has spoken this word.
24:4: The earth mourns and fades away, the world languishes and fades away, the lofty people of the earth do languish.
24:5: The earth also is polluted under the inhabitants of it; because they have transgressed the laws, violated the statutes, broken the everlasting covenant.
24:6: Therefore has the curse devoured the earth, and those who dwell therein are found guilty: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.
24:7: The new wine mourns, the vine languishes, all the merry-hearted do sigh.
24:8: The mirth of tambourines ceases, the noise of those who rejoice ends, the joy of the harp ceases.
24:9: They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink shall be bitter to those who drink it.
24:10: The waste city is broken down; every house is shut up, that no man may come in.
24:11: There is a crying in the streets because of the wine; all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone.
24:12: In the city is left desolation, and the gate is struck with destruction.
24:13: For thus shall it be in the midst of the earth among the peoples, as the shaking of an olive tree, as the gleanings when the vintage is done.
24:14: These shall lift up their voice, they shall shout; for the majesty of Yahweh they cry aloud from the sea.
24:15: Therefore glorify Yahweh in the east, even the name of Yahweh, the God of Israel, in the isles of the sea!
24:16: From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs: Glory to the righteous. But I said, I pine away, I pine away, woe is me! the treacherous have dealt treacherously; yes, the treacherous have dealt very treacherously.
24:17: Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are on you, O inhabitant of the earth.
24:18: It shall happen, that he who flees from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he who comes up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows on high are opened, and the foundations of the earth tremble.
24:19: The earth is utterly broken, the earth is torn apart, the earth is shaken violently.
24:20: The earth shall stagger like a drunken man, and shall sway back and forth like a hammock; and the disobedience of it shall be heavy on it, and it shall fall, and not rise again.
24:21: It shall happen in that day, that Yahweh will punish the host of the high ones on high, and the kings of the earth on the earth.
24:22: They shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison; and after many days shall they be visited.
24:23: Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed; for Yahweh of Hosts will reign on Mount Zion, and in Jerusalem; and before his elders shall be glory.

25:1: Yahweh, you are my God; I will exalt you, I will praise your name; for you have done wonderful things, [even] counsels of old, in faithfulness [and] truth.
25:2: For you have made of a city a heap, of a fortified city a ruin, a palace of strangers to be no city; it shall never be built.
25:3: Therefore shall a strong people glorify you; a city of awesome nations shall fear you.
25:4: For you have been a stronghold to the poor, a stronghold to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shade from the heat, when the blast of the awesome ones is as a storm against the wall.
25:5: As the heat in a dry place will you bring down the noise of strangers; as the heat by the shade of a cloud, the song of the awesome ones shall be brought low.
25:6: In this mountain will Yahweh of Hosts make to all peoples a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.
25:7: He will destroy in this mountain the surface of the covering that covers all peoples, and the veil that is spread over all nations.
25:8: He has swallowed up death forever; and the Lord Yahweh will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the reproach of his people will he take away from off all the earth: for Yahweh has spoken it.
25:9: It shall be said in that day, Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is Yahweh; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.
25:10: For in this mountain will the hand of Yahweh rest; and Moab shall be trodden down in his place, even as straw is trodden down in the water of the dung-hill.
25:11: He shall spread forth his hands in the midst of it, as he who swims spreads forth [his hands] to swim; but [Yahweh] will lay low his pride together with the craft of his hands.
25:12: The high fortress of your walls has he brought down, laid low, and brought to the ground, even to the dust.

26:1: In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah: we have a strong city; salvation will he appoint for walls and bulwarks.
26:2: Open you the gates, that the righteous nation which keeps faith may enter in.
26:3: You will keep [him] in perfect peace, [whose] mind [is] stayed [on you]; because he trusts in you.
26:4: Trust in Yahweh forever; for in Yah, Yahweh, is an everlasting Rock.
26:5: For he has brought down those who dwell on high, the lofty city: he lays it low, he lays it low even to the ground; he brings it even to the dust.
26:6: The foot shall tread it down; even the feet of the poor, and the steps of the needy.
26:7: The way of the just is uprightness: you that are upright do direct the path of the just.
26:8: Yes, in the way of your judgments, Yahweh, have we waited for you; to your name, even to your memorial [name], is the desire of our soul.
26:9: With my soul have I desired you in the night; yes, with my spirit within me will I seek you earnestly: for when your judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness.
26:10: Let favor be shown to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness; in the land of uprightness will he deal wrongfully, and will not see the majesty of Yahweh.
26:11: Yahweh, your hand is lifted up, yet they don't see: but they shall see [your] zeal for the people, and be disappointed; yes, fire shall devour your adversaries.
26:12: Yahweh, you will ordain peace for us; for you have also worked all our works for us.
26:13: Yahweh our God, other lords besides you have had dominion over us; but by you only will we make mention of your name.
26:14: [They are] dead, they shall not live; [they are] deceased, they shall not rise: therefore have you visited and destroyed them, and made all memory of them to perish.
26:15: You have increased the nation, O Yahweh, you have increased the nation; you are glorified; you have enlarged all the borders of the land.
26:16: Yahweh, in trouble have they visited you; they poured out a prayer [when] your chastening was on them.
26:17: Like as a woman with child, who draws near the time of her delivery, is in pain and cries out in her pangs; so we have been before you, Yahweh.
26:18: We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not worked any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen.
26:19: Your dead shall live; my dead bodies shall arise. Awake and sing, you who dwell in the dust; for your dew is [as] the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast forth the dead.
26:20: Come, my people, enter you into your chambers, and shut your doors about you: hide yourself for a little moment, until the indignation be past.
