30 Woe to athe rebellious children, saith the Lord,

bThat take counsel, but not of me;

And that ccover with a covering, but not of my spirit,

dThat they may add sin to sin:

That walk eto go down into Egypt,

And have not fasked at my mouth;

To strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh,

And to trust in gthe shadow of Egypt!

Therefore shall the strength of Pharaoh be your shame,

And hthe trust in gthe shadow of Egypt your confusion.

For his princes were at iZoan,

And jhis ambassadors came to kHanes.

lThey were all ashamed of ma people that could not profit them,

Nor be an help nor profit,

But a shame, and also a reproach.

nThe burden of othe beasts of the south:

Into the land of ptrouble and panguish,

qFrom whence come the young and rold lion,

stThe viper and sufiery flying serpent,

vThey will carry their riches upon the shoulders of wyoung asses,

And vtheir treasures upon the bunches of camels,

To ma people that shall not profit them.

For hthe Egyptians shall help in vain, and to no purpose:

Therefore have I cried ||concerning this, Their xstrength is to sit still.

Now go, ywrite it before them in a table,

And znote it in a book,

That it may be for the time to come

For ever and ever:

That athis is a rebellious people, lying children,

Children that will not hear the law of the Lord:

10  Which say to the bseers, See not;

And to the prophets, cProphesy not unto us right things,

dSpeak unto us smooth things,

Prophesy deceits:

11  Get you out of the way,

Turn aside out of the path,

Cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.

12  Wherefore thus saith the Holy One of Israel,

Because ye despise this word,

And trust in ||oppression and eperverseness,

And stay thereon:

13  Therefore this iniquity shall be to you fas a breach ready to fall,

Swelling out in a high wall,

gWhose breaking cometh ghsuddenly at an instant.

14  And ihe shall break it as the breaking of the potters’ vessel

That is broken in pieces; khe shall not spare:

So that there shall not be found in the bursting of it kka sherd

lTo take fire from the hearth,

Or to take water withal out of mthe pit.

15  For thus saith the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel;

In returning and nrest shall ye be saved;

oIn quietness and in confidence shall be your strength:

pAnd ye would not.

16  But ye said, No; for qwe will flee upon horses;

Therefore shall ye flee:

And, qWe will ride upon rthe swift;

Therefore shall they that pursue you be swift.

17  sOne thousand shall flee at the rebuke of one;

At the rebuke of five shall ye flee:

Till ye be left as ||a beacon upon the top of a mountain,

And as ttan ensign on an hill.

18  And utherefore will the Lord wait, that he may be gracious unto you,

And therefore vwill he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you:

For the Lord is a God of judgment:

wBlessed are all they that wait for him.

19  For xthe people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem:

Thou shalt weep no more:

He will be very gracious unto thee at the voice of thy cry;

When he shall hear it, he will answer thee.

20  And though the Lord give you ythe bread of adversity, and zthe water of ||affliction,

Yet ashall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more,

But thine eyes shall see thy teachers:

21  And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying,

aaThis is the way, walk ye in it,

bWhen ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.

22  Ye shall defile also cthe covering of dthy graven images eof silver,

And fthe ornament of thy molten images eof gold:

Thou shalt cast them away gas a menstruous cloth;

hThou shalt say unto it, Get thee hence.

23  Then shall he give the rain of thy seed,

That thou shalt sow the ground withal;

And bread of the increase of the earth,

And it shall be fat and plenteous:

iIn that day shall thy cattle feed in large jpastures.

24  kThe oxen likewise and lthe young asses that mear the ground

Shall eat ||clean nprovender,

Which hath been winnowed with the shovel and with the fan.

25  And there shall be oupon every high mountain,

And oupon every high hill,

Rivers and pstreams of waters in the day of the great slaughter,

When othe towers fall.

26  Moreover qthe light of rthe moon shall be as the light of rthe sun,

And the light of rthe sun shall be ssevenfold,

As the light of seven days,

In the day that the Lord bindeth up the breach of his people,

And thealeth the stroke of their wound.

27  Behold, the name of the Lord cometh from far,

Burning with his anger, ||and the burden thereof is heavy:

His lips are full of indignation,

And his tongue as a devouring fire:

28  And whis breath, as an overflowing stream,

xShall reach to the midst of the neck,

xxTo sift the nations with the sieve of vanity:

And there shall be ya bridle in the jaws of the people, causing them to err.

29  Ye shall have a song, as in the night when a holy solemnity is kept;

And gladness of heart, as zwhen one goeth awith a pipe

To come into bthe mountain of the Lord, to the mighty One of Israel.

30  And the Lord shall cause his glorious voice to be heard,

And shall shew cthe lighting down of his arm,

With the indignation of his anger,

And with dthe flame of a devouring fire,

With scattering, and etempest, and efhailstones.

31  For gthrough the voice of the Lord shall the Assyrian hbe beaten down,

iWhich smote with a rod.

32  And in every place where the grounded staff shall pass,

Which the Lord shall lay upon him,

It shall be with ktabrets and kharps:

And in battles of lshaking will he fight ||with it.

33  For mTophet is ordained of old;

Yea, for the king it nis prepared;

He hath made it deep and large:

oThe pile thereof is fire and much wood;

The breath of the Lord, like a stream of brimstone, pdoth kindle it.
