Book of Isaiah Chapter 33

ISAIAH 33:1 Woe to thee that spoilest, and thou wast not spoiled; and dealest treacherously, and they dealt not treacherously with thee! when thou shalt cease to spoil, thou shalt be spoiled; and when thou shalt make an end to deal treacherously, they shall deal treacherously with thee.

ISAIAH 33:2 O LORD, be gracious unto us; we have waited for thee: be thou their arm every morning, our salvation also in the time of trouble.

ISAIAH 33:3 At the noise of the tumult the people fled; at the lifting up of thyself the nations were scattered.

ISAIAH 33:4 And your spoil shall be gathered like the gathering of the caterpiller: as the running to and fro of locusts shall he run upon them.

ISAIAH 33:5 The LORD is exalted; for he dwelleth on high: he hath filled Zion with judgment and righteousness.

ISAIAH 33:6 And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the LORD is his treasure.

ISAIAH 33:7 Behold, their valiant ones shall cry without: the ambassadors of peace shall weep bitterly.

ISAIAH 33:8 The highways lie waste, the wayfaring man ceaseth: he hath broken the covenant, he hath despised the cities, he regardeth no man.

ISAIAH 33:9 The earth mourneth and languisheth: Lebanon is ashamed and hewn down: Sharon is like a wilderness; and Bashan and Carmel shake off their fruits.

ISAIAH 33:10 Now will I rise, saith the LORD; now will I be exalted; now will I lift up myself.

ISAIAH 33:11 Ye shall conceive chaff, ye shall bring forth stubble: your breath, as fire, shall devour you.

ISAIAH 33:12 And the people shall be as the burnings of lime: as thorns cut up shall they be burned in the fire.

ISAIAH 33:13 Hear, ye that are far off, what I have done; and, ye that are near, acknowledge my might.

ISAIAH 33:14 The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?

ISAIAH 33:15 He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil;

ISAIAH 33:16 He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.

ISAIAH 33:17 Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off.

ISAIAH 33:18 Thine heart shall meditate terror. Where is the scribe? where is the receiver? where is he that counted the towers?

ISAIAH 33:19 Thou shalt not see a fierce people, a people of a deeper speech than thou canst perceive; of a stammering tongue, that thou canst not understand.

ISAIAH 33:20 Look upon Zion, the city of our solemnities: thine eyes shall see Jerusalem a quiet habitation, a tabernacle that shall not be taken down; not one of the stakes thereof shall ever be removed, neither shall any of the cords thereof be broken.

ISAIAH 33:21 But there the glorious LORD will be unto us a place of broad rivers and streams; wherein shall go no galley with oars, neither shall gallant ship pass thereby.

ISAIAH 33:22 For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; he will save us.

ISAIAH 33:23 Thy tacklings are loosed; they could not well strengthen their mast, they could not spread the sail: then is the prey of a great spoil divided; the lame take the prey.

ISAIAH 33:24 And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity.

History of the King James Bible

Meaning and pronunciation of Hebrew names in the Old Testament

Preface to the First Edition of the King James Bible

The bible and Zionism

The Bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, is accepted by the three major Western faiths. It is a major work of Western civilization. The Bible documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
