Woe to Jerusalem

29 “Woe ato 1Ariel, to Ariel, the city bwhere David dwelt!

Add year to year;

Let feasts come around.

2 Yet I will distress Ariel;

There shall be heaviness and sorrow,

And it shall be to Me as Ariel.

3 I will encamp against you all around,

I will lay siege against you with a mound,

And I will raise siegeworks against you.

4 You shall be brought down,

You shall speak out of the ground;

Your speech shall be low, out of the dust;

Your voice shall be like a medium’s, cout of the ground;

And your speech shall whisper out of the dust.

5 “Moreover the multitude of your dfoes

Shall be like fine dust,

And the multitude of the terrible ones

Like echaff that passes away;

Yes, it shall be fin an instant, suddenly.

6 gYou will be punished by the Lord of hosts

With thunder and hearthquake and great noise,

With storm and tempest

And the flame of devouring fire.

7 iThe multitude of all the nations who fight against 2Ariel,

Even all who fight against her and her fortress,

And distress her,

Shall be jas a dream of a night vision.

8 kIt shall even be as when a hungry man dreams,

And look—he eats;

But he awakes, and his soul is still empty;

Or as when a thirsty man dreams,

And look—he drinks;

But he awakes, and indeed he is faint,

And his soul still craves:

So the multitude of all the nations shall be,

Who fight against Mount Zion.”


About The New King James Version

The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
