Isaiah 22:15–24

15 This is what the Lord, the Lord Almighty, says:

“Go, say to this steward,

to Shebnat the palaceu administrator:v

16 What are you doing here and who gave you permission

to cut out a gravew for yourselfx here,

hewing your grave on the height

and chiseling your resting place in the rock?

17 “Beware, the Lord is about to take firm hold of you

and hurly you away, you mighty man.

18 He will roll you up tightly like a ball

and throwz you into a large country.

There you will die

and there the chariotsa you were so proud of

will become a disgrace to your master’s house.

19 I will depose you from your office,

and you will be oustedb from your position.c

20 “In that dayd I will summon my servant,e Eliakimf son of Hilkiah. 21 I will clothe him with your robe and fasten your sashg around him and hand your authorityh over to him. He will be a father to those who live in Jerusalem and to the people of Judah. 22 I will place on his shoulderi the keyj to the house of David;k what he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open.l 23 I will drive him like a pegm into a firm place;n he will become a seata of honoro for the house of his father. 24 All the glory of his family will hang on him: its offspring and offshoots—all its lesser vessels, from the bowls to all the jars.
