Isaiah 1

Isa 1:1 The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, kings of Judah.
Isa 1:2 Hear, O heavens, and listen, O earth! For Jehovah has spoken: I have nursed and brought up sons, but they have rebelled against Me.
Isa 1:3 The ox knows his owner, and the ass his master’s manger, but Israel does not know; My people have not understood.
Isa 1:4 Woe, sinful nation, a people heavy with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, sons who corrupt! They have forsaken Jehovah; they have scorned the Holy One of Israel. They are estranged backward.
Isa 1:5 Why will you be stricken any more? Will you continue the revolt? The whole head is sick, and the whole heart is faint.
Isa 1:6 From the sole of the foot even to the head, no soundness is in it; only a wound and a stripe and a fresh blow; they have not been closed, nor bound up; nor was it softened with oil.
Isa 1:7 Your land is a desolation; your cities burned with fire. Foreigners devour your land before you; and behold, ruin, as overthrown by foreigners.
Isa 1:8 And the daughter of Zion is left a booth in a vineyard, like a hut in a cucumber field, like a besieged city.
Isa 1:9 Except Jehovah of Hosts had left a remnant for us, a few, we would be as Sodom; we would be as Gomorrah.
Isa 1:10 Hear the Word of Jehovah, rulers of Sodom. Listen to the Law of our God, people of Gomorrah.
Isa 1:11 What good to Me are your many sacrifices, says Jehovah? I am sated with burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fattened cattle, and the blood of bulls; nor do I delight in the blood of lambs and he goats.
Isa 1:12 When you come to see My face, who has required this at your hand, to trample My courts?
Isa 1:13 Do not add to bringing vain sacrifice; its incense is an abomination to Me. I cannot endure the new moon and sabbath, the going to meeting, and the evil assembly.
Isa 1:14 My soul hates your new moons and your appointed feasts. They are a burden to Me. I am weary of bearing them.
Isa 1:15 And when you spread out your hands, I will hide My eyes from you. Yea, when you multiply prayer, I will not hear. Your hands are full of blood.
Isa 1:16 Wash yourselves, purify yourselves. Put away the evil of your doings from My sight; stop doing evil.
Isa 1:17 Learn to do good, seek justice, straighten the oppressor, judge the orphan, strive for the widow.
Isa 1:18 Come now and let us reason together, says Jehovah: Though your sins are as scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red as the crimson, they shall be like wool.
Isa 1:19 If you are willing and hear, you shall eat the good of the land.
Isa 1:20 But if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured with the sword; for the mouth of Jehovah has spoken.
Isa 1:21 Oh how the faithful city has become a harlot! She was full of justice; righteousness lodged in it. But now, murderers!
Isa 1:22 Your silver has become dross; your wine is diluted with water.
Isa 1:23 Your princes are rebellious and companions of thieves. Everyone loves a bribe, and is pursuing rewards. They do not judge the orphan, nor does the cause of the widow come to them,
Isa 1:24 and says the Lord, Jehovah of Hosts, the mighty One of Israel, Alas! I will be eased of My foes, and avenge Myself of My enemies.
Isa 1:25 And I will return My hand on you, and refine your dross, as with lye, and turn aside all your alloy.
Isa 1:26 And I will return your judges as at the first; and your advisors, as at the beginning; then you shall be called the city of righteousness, a faithful city.
Isa 1:27 Zion shall be redeemed with justice, and her returning ones with righteousness.
Isa 1:28 And the ruin of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together. And those who forsake Jehovah shall be consumed.
Isa 1:29 For they shall be ashamed of the trees which you lusted after; and you shall be ashamed of the gardens that you have chosen.
Isa 1:30 For you shall be like a tree whose leaf fades, and like a garden that has no water in it.
Isa 1:31 And the strong shall be for tow, and his work for a spark; and they shall burn both together; and no one shall quench them.

On this day...
