Book of Isaiah
Chapter 10 - King James Version
1"Woe to those who decree unrighteous
decrees, who write misfortune, Which they have prescribed.
2 To rob the needy of justice, and to
take what is right from the poor of My people, that widows
may be their prey, and that
they may rob the fatherless.
3 What will you do in the day
of punishment, and in the desolation which will come from
afar? To whom will you flee for help? And where will you
4 Without Me they shall
bow down among the prisoners, and they shall fall among the
slain." For all this His anger is not turned away, but His
hand is stretched out still.
5 "Woe to Assyria, the rod of
My anger and the staff in whose hand is My indignation.
6 I will send him against an ungodly
nation, and against the people
of My wrath I will give him charge, to seize the
spoil, to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire
7 Yet he does not mean so, nor does his
so; But it is in his heart to destroy, and cut
off not a few nations.
8 For he says, Are not my princes altogether
9 Is not Calno like Carchemish? Is not
Hamath like Arpad? Is not Samaria like Damascus?
10 As my hand
of idols, whose carved images excelled those
Jerusalem and Samaria,
11 As I have done to Samaria and
Shall I not do also to Jerusalem and her idols?"
Therefore it shall come to pass, when the Lord
has performed all his work on Mount Zion and on Jerusalem,
that He will say, "I will punish the fruit of the
arrogant heart of the king of Assyria, and the
glory of his haughty looks."
13 For he says: "By the strength
of my hand I have done it, and by my wisdom,
for I am prudent; Also I have removed the boundaries
of the people, and have robbed their treasuries;
So I have put down the inhabitants like a valiant
14 My hand has found like a nest the
riches of the people, and as one gathers eggs that are
I have gathered all the earth; And there was
no one who moved his wing, nor opened his mouth with even
15 Shall the ax boast itself against
him who chops with it? Or shall the saw magnify itself
against him who saws with it? As if a rod
could wield itself against those who lift it up, or as if a
could lift up, as if it were not wood!
Therefore the Lord, the Lord of hosts, will send leanness
his fat ones; and under his glory He will
kindle a burning like the burning of a fire.
17 So the Light
of Israel will be for a fire; And his Holy One for a flame;
It will burn and devour His thorns and his briers in one
18 And it will consume the glory of his
forest and of his fruitful field, Both soul and body; And they
as when a sick man wastes away.
19 Then the rest of the
trees of his forest will be so few in number that a child
20 And it shall come to pass in that
day that the remnant of Israel; And such as have escaped of
will never again depend on him who defeated them,
But will depend on the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.
The remnant will return, the remnant of Jacob,
22 For though your people, O Israel,
be as the sand
of the sea, Yet a remnant of them will return;
The destruction decreed shall overflow with righteousness.
Lord God of hosts will make a determined end in the
midst of all
24 Therefore thus says the Lord God
of Hosts: "O My people, who dwell in Zion, do not be afraid
Assyrian. He shall strike you with a rod and lift
you, in the manner of Egypt.
25 "For yet
a very little while and the indignation will cease, as will
26 And the Lord of hosts
will stir up a scourge
for him like the slaughter of Midian
at the rock of Oreb; as His rod was on the sea, so will He
it up in
manner of Egypt.
27 It shall come to pass in
that day that his burden will be taken away
from your shoulder, and his yoke from your
neck, and the yoke will be destroyed because
of the anointing oil.
28 He has come to Aiath,
He has passed Migron; At Michmash he has
attended to his equipment.
29 They have gone along the
ridge, they have taken up lodging at
Geba. Ramah is afraid, Gibeah
of Saul has fled.
30 Lift up your voice, O daughter of
Gallim! Cause it to be heard as far as Laish - O poor
31 Madmenah has fled, the inhabitants
of Gebim seek refuge.
32 As yet he will remain at Nob
that day; He will shake his fist
at the mount of the daughter of Zion, the hill of Jerusalem.
33 Behold, the Lord, The Lord of
will lop off the bough with terror; Those of high
stature will be hewn down, and
the haughty will be humbled.
34 He will cut down
the thickets of the forest with iron, and Lebanon
will fall by the Mighty One.
