Isaiah 1:10 Hear the word of the LORD, ye rulers of Sodom;  give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.

Isaiah 1:12 When ye  come to appear before me, who hath required this at your  hand, to tread my courts?

Isaiah 5:1 Now will I sing to my wellbeloved a song of my  beloved touching his vineyard. My wellbeloved hath a  vineyard in a very fruitful hill: 
Isaiah 5:2 And he fenced it, and  gathered out the stones thereof, and planted it with the  choicest vine, and built a tower in the midst of it, and also  made a winepress therein: and he looked that it should bring  forth grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes. 
Isaiah 5:3 And  now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem, and men of Judah, judge, I  pray you, betwixt me and my vineyard. 
Isaiah 5:4 What could  have been done more to my vineyard, that I have not done  in it? wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth  grapes, brought it forth wild grapes? 
Isaiah 5:5 And now go to; I  will tell you what I will do to my vineyard: I will take away  the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten up; and break down  the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down: 
Isaiah 5:6 And I  will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but there  shall come up briers and thorns: I will also command the  clouds that they rain no rain upon it. 
Isaiah 5:7 For the vineyard  of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men  of Judah his pleasant plant: and he looked for judgment, but  behold oppression; for righteousness, but behold a cry.  
Isaiah 5:8 Woe unto them that join house to house, that lay  field to field, till there be no place, that they may be  placed alone in the midst of the earth! 
Isaiah 5:9 In mine ears  said the LORD of hosts, Of a truth many houses shall be  desolate, even great and fair, without inhabitant. 
Isaiah 5:10  Yea, ten acres of vineyard shall yield one bath, and the seed  of an homer shall yield an ephah.  
Isaiah 5:11 Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning,  that they may follow strong drink; that continue until  night, till wine inflame them!

Isaiah 5:25 Therefore is the anger of the  LORD kindled against his people, and he hath stretched  forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the  hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst  of the streets.

Isaiah 5:26 And he will lift up an ensign to the nations from  far, and will hiss unto them from the end of the earth: and,  behold, they shall come with speed swiftly: 
Isaiah 5:27 None  shall be weary nor stumble among them; none shall slumber  nor sleep; neither shall the girdle of their loins be loosed,  nor the latchet of their shoes be broken: 
Isaiah 5:28 Whose  arrows are sharp, and all their bows bent, their horses’  hoofs shall be counted like flint, and their wheels like a  whirlwind: 
Isaiah 5:29 Their roaring shall be like a lion, they  shall roar like young lions: yea, they shall roar, and lay hold  of the prey, and shall carry it away safe, and none shall  deliver it. 
Isaiah 5:30 And in that day they shall roar against  them like the roaring of the sea: and if one look unto the  land, behold darkness and sorrow, and the light is  darkened in the heavens thereof.

Isaiah 6:5 Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because  I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a  people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King,  the LORD of hosts. 
Isaiah 6:6 Then flew one of the seraphims  unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had  taken with the tongs from off the altar: 
Isaiah 6:7 And he laid  it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips;  and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.

Isaiah 6:13 But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return,  and shall be eaten: as a teil tree, and as an oak, whose  substance is in them, when they cast their leaves: so the  holy seed shall be the substance thereof.

Isaiah 7:5 Because Syria, Ephraim, and the son of Remaliah,  have taken evil counsel against thee, saying, 
Isaiah 7:6 Let us go  up against Judah, and vex it, and let us make a breach  therein for us, and set a king in the midst of it, even the  son of Tabeal: 
Isaiah 7:7 Thus saith the Lord GOD, It shall not  stand, neither shall it come to pass.

Isaiah 7:13  And he said, Hear ye now, O house of David; Is it a small  thing for you to weary men, but will ye weary my God also?

Isaiah Page 420   pass in that day, that a man shall nourish a young cow, and  two sheep; 
Isaiah 7:22 And it shall come to pass, for the  abundance of milk that they shall give he shall eat butter:  for butter and honey shall every one eat that is left in the  land. 
Isaiah 7:23 And it shall come to pass in that day, that  every place shall be, where there were a thousand vines at a  thousand silverlings, it shall even be for briers and thorns.   
Isaiah 7:24 With arrows and with bows shall men come  thither; because all the land shall become briers and thorns.  
Isaiah 7:25 And on all hills that shall be digged with the  mattock, there shall not come thither the fear of briers and  thorns: but it shall be for the sending forth of oxen, and for  the treading of lesser cattle.

Isaiah 28:14 Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye  scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem.  
Isaiah 28:15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant  with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the  overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come  unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under  falsehood have we hid ourselves:

Isaiah 28:27 For the fitches are  not threshed with a threshing instrument, neither is a cart  wheel turned about upon the cummin; but the fitches are  beaten out with a staff, and the cummin with a rod. 
Isaiah 28:28  Bread corn is bruised; because he will not ever be  threshing it, nor break it with the wheel of his cart, nor  bruise it with his horsemen. 
Isaiah 28:29 This also cometh  forth from the LORD of hosts, which is wonderful in  counsel, and excellent in working. 
      

Chapter 29 
Isaiah 29:1 Woe to Ariel, to Ariel, the city where David  dwelt! add ye year to year; let them kill sacrifices. 
Isaiah 29:2  Yet I will distress Ariel, and there shall be heaviness and  sorrow: and it shall be unto me as Ariel. 
Isaiah 29:3 And I will  camp against thee round about, and will lay siege against  thee with a mount, and I will raise forts against thee. 
Isaiah 29:4  And thou shalt be brought down, and shalt speak out of  the ground, and thy speech shall be low out of the dust, and  thy voice shall be, as of one that hath a familiar spirit, out of  the ground, and thy speech shall whisper out of the dust.  
Isaiah 29:5 Moreover the multitude of thy strangers shall be like  small dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones shall be  as chaff that passeth away: yea, it shall be at an instant  suddenly. 
Isaiah 29:6 Thou shalt be visited of the LORD of  hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise,  with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.  
Isaiah 29:7 And the multitude of all the nations that fight  against Ariel, even all that fight against her and her  munition, and that distress her, shall be as a dream of a  night vision. 
Isaiah 29:8 It shall even be as when an hungry  man dreameth, and, behold, he eateth; but he 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 his soul hath appetite: so shall the multitude of all  the nations be, that fight against mount Zion. 
Isaiah 29:9 Stay  yourselves, and wonder; cry ye out, and cry: they are  drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with  strong drink. 
Isaiah 29:10 For the LORD hath poured out upon  you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the  prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered. 
Isaiah 29:11  And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a  book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is  learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I  cannot; for it is sealed: 
Isaiah 29:12 And the book is delivered  to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and  he saith, I am not learned.  
Isaiah 29:13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this  people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips  do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me,  and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:   
Isaiah 29:14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a  marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous  work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men  shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men  shall be hid. 
Isaiah 29:15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide  their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the  dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?  
Isaiah 29:16 Surely your turning of things upside down shall be  esteemed as the potter’s clay: for shall the work say of him  that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say  of him that framed it, He had no understanding? 
Isaiah 29:17  Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon shall be  turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be  esteemed as a forest?  
Isaiah 29:18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of  the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of  obscurity, and out of darkness. 
Isaiah 29:19 The meek also shall  increase their joy in the LORD, and the poor among men  shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel. 
Isaiah 29:20 For the  terrible one is brought to nought, and the scorner is  consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off:  
Isaiah 29:21 That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a  snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and turn aside the  just for a thing of nought. 
Isaiah 29:22 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. 
Isaiah 29:23 But when he seeth his children,  the work of mine hands, in the midst of him, they shall  sanctify my name, and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and  shall fear the God of Israel. 
Isaiah 29:24 They also that erred in  spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured  shall learn doctrine.  

      

Chapter 30

Isaiah 30:1 Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD,  that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a  covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:  
Isaiah 30:2 That walk to go down into Egypt, and have not  asked at my mouth; to strengthen themselves in the strength  of Pharaoh, and to trust in the shadow of Egypt!

Isaiah 30:4  For his princes were at Zoan, and his ambassadors came to  Hanes. 
Isaiah 30:5 They were all ashamed of a people that  could not profit them, nor be an help nor profit, but a  shame, and also a reproach. 
Isaiah 30:6 The burden of the beasts  of the south: into the land of trouble and anguish, from  whence come the young and old lion, the viper and fiery  flying serpent, they will carry their riches upon the  shoulders of young asses, and their treasures upon the  bunches of camels, to a people that shall not profit them.  
Isaiah 30:7 For the Egyptians shall help in vain, and to no  purpose: therefore have I cried concerning this, Their  strength is to sit still.  
Isaiah 30:8 Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it  in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and  ever: 
Isaiah 30:9 That this is a rebellious people, lying  children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD:  
Isaiah 30:10 Which say to the seers, See not; and to the  prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us  smooth things, prophesy deceits: 
Isaiah 30:11 Get you out of the  way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel  to cease from before us. 
Isaiah 30:12 Wherefore thus saith the  Holy One of Israel, Because ye despise this word, and trust  in oppression and perverseness, and stay thereon:

Isaiah 30:14 And he shall break it as the  breaking of the potters’ vessel that is broken in pieces; he  shall not spare: so that there shall not be found in the  bursting of it a sherd to take fire from the hearth, or to take  water withal out of the pit. 
Isaiah 30:15 For thus saith the Lord  GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye  be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your  strength: and ye would not. 
Isaiah 30:16 But ye said, No; for we  will flee upon horses; therefore shall ye flee: and, We will  ride upon the swift; therefore shall they that pursue you be  swift.

Isaiah 30:20 And though the Lord give you the bread of  adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy  teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes  shall see thy teachers: 
Isaiah 30:21 And thine ears shall hear a  word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it,  when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.  
Isaiah 30:22 Ye shall defile also the covering of thy graven  images of silver, and the ornament of thy molten images of  gold: thou shalt cast them away as a menstruous cloth; thou  shalt say unto it, Get thee hence. 
Isaiah 30:23 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: in that day shall thy cattle feed in large pastures.  
Isaiah 30:24 The oxen likewise and the young asses that ear the  ground shall eat clean provender, which hath been  winnowed with the shovel and with the fan. 
Isaiah 30:25 And  there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every  high hill, rivers and streams of waters in the day of the  great slaughter, when the towers fall. 
Isaiah 30:26 Moreover the  light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the  light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven  days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his  people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.  
Isaiah 30:27 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: 
Isaiah 30:28 And his breath, as an overflowing  stream, shall reach to the midst of the neck, to sift the  nations with the sieve of vanity: and there shall be a bridle  in the jaws of the people, causing them to err. 
Isaiah 30:29 Ye  shall have a song, as in the night when a holy solemnity is  kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goeth with a pipe  to come into the mountain of the LORD, to the mighty One  of Israel. 
Isaiah 30:30 And the LORD shall cause his glorious  voice to be heard, and shall shew the lighting down of his  arm, with the indignation of his anger, and with the  flame of a devouring fire, with scattering, and tempest,  and hailstones. 
Isaiah 30:31 For through the voice of the LORD  shall the Assyrian be beaten down, which smote with a  rod. 
Isaiah 30:32 And in every place where the grounded staff  shall pass, which the LORD shall lay upon him, it shall be  with tabrets and harps: and in battles of shaking will he  fight with it. 
Isaiah 30:33 For Tophet is ordained of old; yea,  for the king it is prepared; he hath made it deep and  large: the pile thereof is fire and much wood; the breath of  the LORD, like a stream of brimstone, doth kindle it.   

      

Chapter 31

Isaiah 31:1 Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and  stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are  many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but  they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the  LORD! 
Isaiah 31:2 Yet he also is wise, and will bring evil,  and will not call back his words: but will arise against the  house of the evildoers, and against the help of them that  work iniquity. 
Isaiah 31:3 Now the Egyptians are men, and not  God; and their horses flesh, and not spirit. When the LORD  shall stretch out his hand, both he that helpeth shall fall, and  he that is holpen shall fall down, and they all shall fail  together. 
Isaiah 31:4 For thus hath the LORD spoken unto me,  Like as the lion and the young lion roaring on his prey,  when a multitude of shepherds is called forth against him,  he will not be afraid of their voice, nor abase himself for  the noise of them: so shall the LORD of hosts come down to  fight for mount Zion, and for the hill thereof.

Isaiah 32:3 And the eyes of them that  see shall not be dim, and the ears of them that hear shall  hearken. 
Isaiah 32:4 The heart also of the rash shall understand  knowledge, and the tongue of the stammerers shall be ready  to speak plainly. 
Isaiah 32:5 The vile person shall be no more  called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful. 
Isaiah 32:6  For the vile person will speak villany, 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. 
Isaiah 32:7 The  instruments also of the churl are evil: he deviseth wicked  devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the  needy speaketh right. 
Isaiah 32:8 But the liberal deviseth liberal  things; and by liberal things shall he stand.  
Isaiah 32:9 Rise up, ye women that are at ease; hear my voice,  ye careless daughters; give ear unto my speech.

Isaiah 32:13 Upon the land of my people shall come up  thorns and briers; yea, upon all the houses of joy in the  joyous city: 
Isaiah 32:14 Because the palaces shall be forsaken;  the multitude of the city shall be left; the forts and towers  shall be for dens for ever, a joy of wild asses, a pasture of    
Isaiah Page 430   flocks; 
Isaiah 32:15 Until the spirit be poured upon us from on  high, and the wilderness be a fruitful field, and the fruitful  field be counted for a forest.

Isaiah 33:17 Thine eyes  shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land  that is very far off.

Chapter 36

Isaiah 36:1 Now it came to pass in the fourteenth year of king  Hezekiah, that Sennacherib king of Assyria came up  against all the defenced cities of Judah, and took them.  
Isaiah 36:2 And the king of Assyria sent Rabshakeh from  Lachish to Jerusalem unto king Hezekiah with a great army.  And he stood by the conduit of the upper pool in the  highway of the fuller’s field. 
Isaiah 36:3 Then came forth unto  him Eliakim, Hilkiah’s son, which was over the house, and  Shebna the scribe, and Joah, Asaph’s son, the recorder.  
Isaiah 36:4 And Rabshakeh said unto them, Say ye now to  Hezekiah, Thus saith the great king, the king of Assyria,  What confidence is this wherein thou trustest? 
Isaiah 36:5 I say,  sayest thou, (but they are but vain words) I have  counsel and strength for war: now on whom dost thou trust,  that thou rebellest against me? 
Isaiah 36:6 Lo, thou trustest in  the staff of this broken reed, on Egypt; whereon if a man  lean, it will go into his hand, and pierce it: so is Pharaoh  king of Egypt to all that trust in him. 
Isaiah 36:7 But if thou say  to me, We trust in the LORD our God: is it not he, whose  high places and whose altars Hezekiah hath taken away, and  said to Judah and to Jerusalem, Ye shall worship before this  altar? 
Isaiah 36:8 Now therefore give pledges, I pray thee, to my  master the king of Assyria, and I will give thee two  thousand horses, if thou be able on thy part to set riders  upon them. 
Isaiah 36:9 How then wilt thou turn away the face of  one captain of the least of my master’s servants, and put thy  trust on Egypt for chariots and for horsemen? 
Isaiah 36:10 And  am I now come up without the LORD against this land to  destroy it? the LORD said unto me, Go up against this land,  and destroy it.  
Isaiah 36:11 Then said Eliakim and Shebna and Joah unto  Rabshakeh, Speak, I pray thee, unto thy servants in the  Syrian language; for we understand it: and speak not to us  in the Jews’ language, in the ears of the people that are on  the wall.  
Isaiah 36:12 But Rabshakeh said, Hath my master sent me to  thy master and to thee to speak these words? hath he not  sent me to the men that sit upon the wall, that they may eat  their own dung, and drink their own piss with you? 
Isaiah 36:13  Then Rabshakeh stood, and cried with a loud voice in the  Jews’ language, and said, Hear ye the words of the great  king, the king of Assyria. 
Isaiah 36:14 Thus saith the king, Let  not Hezekiah deceive you: for he shall not be able to deliver  you. 
Isaiah 36:15 Neither let Hezekiah make you trust in the  LORD, saying, The LORD will surely deliver us: this city  shall not be delivered into the hand of the king of Assyria.  
Isaiah 36:16 Hearken not to Hezekiah: for thus saith the king of  Assyria, Make an agreement with me by a present, and  come out to me: and eat ye every one of his vine, and every  one of his fig tree, and drink ye every one the waters of his  own cistern; 
Isaiah 36:17 Until I come and take you away to a  land like your own land, a land of corn and wine, a land of  bread and vineyards. 
Isaiah 36:18 Beware lest Hezekiah  persuade you, saying, The LORD will deliver us. Hath any  of the gods of the nations delivered his land out of the hand  of the king of Assyria? 
Isaiah 36:19 Where are the gods of  Hamath and Arphad? where are the gods of Sepharvaim?  and have they delivered Samaria out of my hand? 
Isaiah 36:20  Who are they among all the gods of these lands, that have  delivered their land out of my hand, that the LORD should  deliver Jerusalem out of my hand? 
Isaiah 36:21 But they held  their peace, and answered him not a word: for the king’s  commandment was, saying, Answer him not.  
Isaiah 36:22 Then came Eliakim, the son of Hilkiah, that  was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and Joah,  the son of Asaph, the recorder, to Hezekiah with their  clothes rent, and told him the words of Rabshakeh.  

      

Chapter 37

Isaiah 37:1 And it came to pass, when king Hezekiah heard  it, that he rent his clothes, and covered himself with  sackcloth, and went into the house of the LORD. 
Isaiah 37:2  And he sent Eliakim, who was over the household, and  Shebna the scribe, and the elders of the priests covered with  sackcloth, unto 
Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz. 
Isaiah 37:3  And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is  a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and of blasphemy: for the  children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to  bring forth. 
Isaiah 37:4 It may be the LORD thy God will hear  the words of Rabshakeh, whom the king of Assyria his  master hath sent to reproach the living God, and will  reprove the words which the LORD thy God hath heard:  wherefore lift up thy prayer for the remnant that is left.  
Isaiah 37:5 So the servants of king Hezekiah came to Isaiah.  
Isaiah 37:6 And Isaiah said unto them, Thus shall ye say unto  your master, Thus saith the LORD, Be not afraid of the  words that thou hast heard, wherewith the servants of the  king of Assyria have blasphemed me.

Isaiah 37:17 Incline thine ear, O LORD, and  hear; open thine eyes, O LORD, and see: and hear all the  words of Sennacherib, which hath sent to reproach the  living God. 
Isaiah 37:18 Of a truth, LORD, the kings of Assyria  have laid waste all the nations, and their countries, 
Isaiah 37:19  And have cast their gods into the fire: for they were no  gods, but the work of men’s hands, wood and stone:  therefore they have destroyed them.

Isaiah 37:21 Then 
Isaiah the son of Amoz sent unto Hezekiah,  saying, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Whereas thou  hast prayed to me against Sennacherib king of Assyria:  
Isaiah 37:22 This is the word which the LORD hath spoken  concerning him; The virgin, the daughter of Zion, hath  despised thee, and laughed thee to scorn; the daughter of  Jerusalem hath shaken her head at thee. 
Isaiah 37:23 Whom hast  thou reproached and blasphemed? and against whom hast  thou exalted thy voice, and lifted up thine eyes on high?  even against the Holy One of Israel. 
Isaiah 37:24 By thy  servants hast thou reproached the Lord, and hast said, By  the multitude of my chariots am I come up to the height of  the mountains, to the sides of Lebanon; and I will cut down  the tall cedars thereof, and the choice fir trees thereof: and  I will enter into the height of his border, and the forest of  his Carmel.

Isaiah 37:27  Therefore their inhabitants were of small power, they were  dismayed and confounded: they were as the grass of the  field, and as the green herb, as the grass on the  housetops, and as corn blasted before it be grown up.  
Isaiah 37:28 But I know thy abode, and thy going out, and thy  coming in, and thy rage against me. 
Isaiah 37:29 Because thy  rage against me, and thy tumult, is come up into mine ears,  therefore will I put my hook in thy nose, and my bridle in  thy lips, and I will turn thee back by the way by which thou  camest. 
Isaiah 37:30 And this shall be a sign unto thee, Ye  shall eat this year such as groweth of itself; and the second  year that which springeth of the same: and in the third year  sow ye, and reap, and plant vineyards, and eat the fruit  thereof. 
Isaiah 37:31 And the remnant that is escaped of the  house of Judah shall again take root downward, and bear  fruit upward: 
Isaiah 37:32 For out of Jerusalem shall go forth a  remnant, and they that escape out of mount Zion: the zeal of  the LORD of hosts shall do this. 
Isaiah 37:33 Therefore thus  saith the LORD concerning the king of Assyria, He shall  not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow there nor come  before it with shields, nor cast a bank against it. 
Isaiah 37:34 By  the way that he came, by the same shall he return, and shall  not come into this city, saith the LORD. 
Isaiah 37:35 For I will  defend this city to save it for mine own sake, and for my  servant David’s sake.

Isaiah 38:14 Like a crane or a swallow, so did I  chatter: I did mourn as a dove: mine eyes fail with looking  upward: O LORD, I am oppressed; undertake for me.  
Isaiah 38:15 What shall I say? he hath both spoken unto me, and  himself hath done it: I shall go softly all my years in the  bitterness of my soul. 
Isaiah 38:16 O Lord, by these things  men live, and in all these things is the life of my spirit: so  wilt thou recover me, and make me to live. 
Isaiah 38:17 Behold,  for peace I had great bitterness: but thou hast in love to my  soul delivered it from the pit of corruption: for thou hast  cast all my sins behind thy back. 
Isaiah 38:18 For the grave  cannot praise thee, death can not celebrate thee: they that  go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth. 
Isaiah 38:19 The  living, the living, he shall praise thee, as I do this day: the  father to the children shall make known thy truth. 
Isaiah 38:20  The LORD was ready to save me: therefore we will sing  my songs to the stringed instruments all the days of our life  in the house of the LORD.

Isaiah had said, Let  them take a lump of figs, and lay it for a plaister upon the  boil, and he shall recover.

Isaiah 51:23 But I will put it into the hand of  them that afflict thee; which have said to thy soul, Bow  down, that we may go over: and thou hast laid thy body as  the ground, and as the street, to them that went over.

Isaiah 58:4 Behold, ye fast  for strife and debate, and to smite with the fist of  wickedness: ye shall not fast as ye do this day, to make  your voice to be heard on high. 
Isaiah 58:5 Is it such a fast that I  have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to  bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth  and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an  acceptable day to the LORD? 
Isaiah 58:6 Is not this the fast  that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to  undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free,  and that ye break every yoke? 
Isaiah 58:7 Is it not to deal thy  bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are  cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou  cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own  flesh?

Chapter 59

Isaiah 59:1 Behold, the LORD’S hand is not shortened, that it  cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:   
Isaiah 59:2 But your iniquities have separated between you and  your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that  he will not hear. 
Isaiah 59:3 For your hands are defiled with  blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken  lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness.

Isaiah 59:8 The way  of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their  goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever  goeth therein shall not know peace.

Isaiah 59:11 We roar all  like bears, and mourn sore like doves: we look for  judgment, but there is none; for salvation, but it is far off  from us. 
Isaiah 59:12 For our transgressions are multiplied  before thee, and our sins testify against us: for our  transgressions are with us; and as for our iniquities, we  know them; 
Isaiah 59:13 In transgressing and lying against the  LORD, and departing away from our God, speaking  oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the  heart words of falsehood. 
Isaiah 59:14 And judgment is turned  away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is  fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. 
Isaiah 59:15 Yea,    
Isaiah Page 442   truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh  himself a prey: and the LORD saw it, and it displeased  him that there was no judgment.   
Isaiah 59:16 And he saw that there was no man, and  wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm  brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it  sustained him. 
Isaiah 59:17 For he put on righteousness as a  breastplate, and an helmet of salvation upon his head; and  he put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, and was  clad with zeal as a cloke. 
Isaiah 59:18 According to their  deeds, accordingly he will repay, fury to his adversaries,  recompence to his enemies; to the islands he will repay  recompence.

Isaiah 59:20 And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto  them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the LORD.  
Isaiah 59:21 As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith  the LORD; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words  which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy  mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the  mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth  and for ever.
