33 Woe to thee athat spoilest, and thou wast not spoiled;

And bdealest treacherously, and they dealt not treacherously with thee!

cWhen 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.

O Lord, be gracious unto us; dwe have waited for thee:

eBe thou their arm fevery morning,

Our salvation also in the time of trouble.

At the noise of the tumult the people fled;

gAt the lifting up of thyself the nations were scattered.

And ayour spoil shall be hgathered like the gathering of ithe caterpiller:

As the running to and fro of locusts shall he krun upon them.

lThe Lord is exalted; for he dwelleth on high:

He hath filled Zion with judgment and righteousness.

And wisdom and knowledge shall be

mThe stability of thy times, and nstrength of salvation:

The fear of the Lord is his treasure.

Behold, their ||valiant ones shall cry without:

oThe ambassadors of peace shall weep bitterly.

pThe highways lie waste, the wayfaring man ceaseth:

He qhath broken the covenant,

rHe hath despised the cities, he regardeth no man.

sThe earth mourneth and tlanguisheth:

uLebanon is ashamed and ||hewn down:

uSharon is like a wilderness;

And vBashan and uCarmel wshake off their fruits.

10  xNow will I rise, saith the Lord;

Now will I be exalted;

Now will I lift up myself.

11  yYe shall conceive zchaff, yye shall bring forth zstubble:

Your breath, as fire, shall devour you.

12  And the people shall be as the burnings of lime:

aAs thorns bcut up shall they be burned in the fire.

13  Hear, cye that are far off, what I have done;

And, cye that are near, acknowledge my might.

14  The sinners in Zion are afraid;

dFearfulness hath surprised ethe hypocrites.

fWho among us shall dwell with the devouring fire?

Who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?

15  gHe that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly;

He that despiseth the gain of ||hoppressions,

That shaketh his hands from holding of ibribes,

That stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood,

And jshutteth his eyes from seeing evil;

16  kHe shall dwell on high:

His place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks:

Bread shall be given him; lhis waters shall be sure.

17  Thine eyes shall see mthe king in his beauty:

They shall behold the land that is very far off.

18  Thine heart shall meditate terror.

nWhere is the scribe? where is the receiver?

Where is he that counted the towers?

19  oThou shalt not see pa fierce people,

qA people of a deeper speech than thou canst perceive;

Of a ||rstammering tongue, that thou canst not understand.

20  Look upon Zion, the city of our ssolemnities:

tThine eyes shall see Jerusalem a uquiet habitation,

A tabernacle that shall not be taken down;

vNot one of wthe stakes thereof shall ever be removed,

Neither shall any of xthe cords thereof be broken.

21  But there the glorious Lord will be unto us

A place of broad yrivers and ystreams;

Wherein shall go no galley with oars,

Neither shall gallant ship pass thereby.

22  For the Lord is our judge, the Lord is our zlawgiver,

aThe Lord is our king; he will save us.

23  ||Thy btacklings care loosed;

They could not well strengthen their dmast, they could not spread ethe sail:

Then is fthe prey of a great fspoil divided;

gThe lame take the prey.

24  And hthe inhabitant shall not say, I am sick:

iThe people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity.
