32 Behold, aa king shall reign in righteousness,
And princes shall rule in judgment.
And ba covert from the tempest;
As rivers of water cin a dry place,
3 And ethe eyes of them that see shall not be dim,
And ethe ears of them that hear shall hearken.
4 The heart also of the †rash shall understand knowledge,
Nor the churl said to be bountiful.
And his heart will work iniquity,
To practise hypocrisy, and to utter error against the Lord,
To make empty the soul of the hungry,
And he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.
He deviseth wicked devices
gTo destroy the poor with lying words,
Even ||when the needy speaketh right.
8 But hthe liberal deviseth liberal things;
And by liberal things shall he ||stand.
9 Rise up, ye women ithat are at ease; hear my voice,
Ye careless daughters; give ear unto my speech.
10 †Many days and years shall ye be troubled, ye careless women:
For the vintage shall fail, the gathering shall not come.
11 Tremble, ye women ithat are at ease; be troubled, ye careless ones:
13 oUpon the land of my people shall come up thorns and briers;
14 rBecause the palaces shall be forsaken;
The multitude of the city shall be left;
rA joy of wild asses, a pasture of flocks;
15 Until tthe spirit be poured upon us from on high,
And uthe wilderness be a fruitful field,
vAnd the fruitful field be counted for a forest.
And righteousness remain vin the fruitful field.
And the effect of qrighteousness quietness and assurance for ever.
And in sure dwellings,
And in iquiet resting places;
||And the city shall be low in a low place.
20 Blessed are bye that sow beside all waters,
