Isaiah 1:2–9

fHear, O heavens, and ggive ear, O earth:

For the Lord hath spoken,

I have ggnourished and brought up children,

And they have rebelled against me.

hThe ox knoweth his owner,

And the ass his master’s icrib:

But Israel kldoth not know,

My people ldoth not consider.

Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity,

mA seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters:

They have forsaken the Lord,

They have nprovoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger,

They are gone away backward.

oWhy should ye be stricken any more?

Ye will revolt more and more:

The whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.

From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no psoundness in it;

But qwounds, and qrbruises, and sputrifying sores:

They have not been closed, neither bound up, neither tmollified with ||ointment.

uYour country is desolate,

Your cities are burned with fire:

Your land, strangers devour it in your presence,

And it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.

And the daughter of Zion is left vas a cottage in a vineyard,

As vva lodge win a garden of cucumbers,

As a besieged city.

xExcept the Lord of hosts had left unto us ya very small remnant,

We should have been as zSodom,

And we should have been like unto zGomorrah.
