The Book of the Prophet Isaiah

Chapter 16

1

Send3 ye the lamb to the ruler6 of the land from Sela to the wilderness, unto the mount of the daughter of Zion.

2

For it shall be, [that], as a wandering6 bird cast out30 of the nest, [so] the daughters of Moab shall be at the fords of Arnon.

3

Take54 counsel, execute3 judgment; make3 thy shadow as the night in the midst of the noonday; hide16 the outcasts;12 bewray17 not him that wandereth.6

4

Let mine outcasts12 dwell4 with thee, Moab; be3 thou a covert to them from the face of the spoiler:6 for the extortioner5 is at an end,1 the spoiler ceaseth,1 the oppressors6 are consumed1 out of the land.

5

And in mercy shall the throne be established:90 and he shall sit1 upon it in truth in the tabernacle of David, judging,6 and seeking6 judgment, and hasting righteousness.

6

We have heard1 of the pride of Moab; [he is] very proud: [even] of his haughtiness, and his pride, and his wrath: [but] his lies [shall] not [be] so.

7

Therefore shall Moab howl55 for Moab, every one shall howl:55 for the foundations of Kirhareseth shall ye mourn;4 surely [they are] stricken.

8

For the fields of Heshbon languish,49 [and] the vine of Sibmah: the lords of the heathen have broken down1 the principal plants thereof, they are come1 [even] unto Jazer, they wandered1 [through] the wilderness: her branches are stretched out,8 they are gone over1 the sea.

9

Therefore I will bewail4 with the weeping of Jazer the vine of Sibmah: I will water17 thee with my tears, O Heshbon, and Elealeh: for the shouting for thy summer fruits and for thy harvest is fallen.1

10

And gladness is taken away,8 and joy out of the plentiful field; 3760 and in the vineyards there shall be no singing,29 neither shall there be shouting:37 the treaders6 shall tread out4 no wine in [their] presses; I have made [their vintage] shouting to cease.52

11

Wherefore my bowels shall sound4 like an harp for Moab, and mine inward parts for Kirharesh.

12

And it shall come to pass, when it is seen8 that Moab is weary8 on the high place, that he shall come1 to his sanctuary to pray;99 but he shall not prevail.4

13

This [is] the word that the LORD hath spoken14 concerning Moab since that time.

14

But now the LORD hath spoken,14 saying,2 Within three years, as the years of an hireling, and the glory of Moab shall be contemned,8 with all that great multitude; and the remnant [shall be] very small [and] feeble. 3524
