29 ||Woe to aAriel, to Ariel, ||the city bwhere David cdwelt!

Add ye year to year; let them dkill esacrifices.

Yet I will distress aAriel,

And there shall be heaviness and sorrow:

And it shall be unto me as aAriel.

And I will ccamp against thee fround about,

And gwill lay siege against thee with ha mount,

And I will raise iforts against thee.

And kthou shalt be brought down, and shalt speak out of the ground,

And lthy speech shall be low out of the dust,

And thy voice shall be, as of mone that hath a familiar spirit, out of the ground,

And thy speech shall mwhisper out of the dust.

Moreover the multitude of thy nstrangers shall be like small dust,

And the multitude of nthe terrible ones shall be oas chaff that passeth away:

Yea, it shall be pat an instant suddenly.

Thou shalt be qvisited of the Lord of hosts

With thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise,

With rstorm and tempest, and sthe flame of devouring fire.

tAnd the multitude of all the nations that fight against aAriel,

Even all that fight against her and her umunition, and that distress her,

Shall be vas a dream of a night vision.

It shall even be as when an hungry man vwdreameth, and, behold, he eateth;

But whe awaketh, and his soul is empty:

Or as when a thirsty man dreameth, and, behold, he drinketh;

But he awaketh, and, behold, he is faint, and xhis soul hath appetite:

So shall the multitude of all the nations be,

That fight against mount Zion.

Stay yourselves, and wonder;

||Cry ye out, and cry:

yThey are drunken, zbut not with wine;

They stagger, but not with strong drink.

10  For athe Lord hath poured out upon you the spirit of bdeep sleep,

And hath cclosed your eyes:

The prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered.

11  dAnd the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a ||book ethat is sealed,

Which men deliver to one that is learned,

Saying, Read this, I pray thee:

And he saith, I cannot; efor it is sealed:

12  And the book is delivered to him that is not learned,

Saying, Read this, I pray thee:

And he saith, I am not learned.

13  Wherefore the Lord said,

fForasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth,

And with their lips do ghonour me,

But have removed their heart far from me,

And their fear toward me is taught by hthe precept of men:

14  iTherefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people,

Even a marvellous work and a wonder:

For jthe wisdom of their wise men shall perish,

And the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.

15  Woe unto kthem that seek deep to hide their counsel from the Lord,

And their works are in the dark,

And lthey say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?

16  Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay:

For mshall the work say of him that made it, He made me not?

Or shall nthe thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?

17  Is it not oyet a very little while,

And pLebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field,

qAnd the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest?

18  And rin that day sshall the deaf hear the words of the book,

And the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.

19  tThe meek also shall increase their joy in the Lord,

And uthe poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.

20  For vthe terrible one wis brought to nought, and the xscorner wis consumed,

And all that watch for iniquity are cut off:

21  That make a man an offender for a word,

And lay a snare for yhim that reproveth in the gate,

And zturn aside the just afor a thing of nought.

22  Therefore thus saith the Lord, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob,

Jacob shall not now be ashamed,

Neither shall his face now wax pale.

23  But when he seeth his children, bthe work of mine hands, in the midst of him,

cThey shall sanctify my name,

And sanctify the Holy One of Jacob,

And shall fear dthe God of Israel.

24  They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding,

And ethey that murmured shall learn fdoctrine.
