Isaiah 22

Isa 22:1 The burden of the valley of vision: What ails you now, that you have gone up to the housetops?

Isa 22:7 And it happened; your choicest valleys were full of chariots; and the horsemen surely set in order at the gate.
Isa 22:8 And he removed Judah’s covering; and you looked in that day to the armor of the house of the forest.
Isa 22:9 You have also seen the breaks in the city of David, that they are many; and you gathered the waters of the lower pool.

Isa 22:14 And Jehovah of Hosts revealed in my ears, Surely this iniquity shall not be covered for you until you die, says the Lord Jehovah of Hosts.
Isa 22:15 So says the Lord Jehovah of Hosts, Go! Go to this treasurer, to Shebna who is over the house.
Isa 22:16 What is to you here? And who is here to you, that you have carved a tomb for yourself here, as one having cut out his tomb on high, having carved out a home for himself in the rock?
Isa 22:17 Behold, Jehovah hurls you with a hurling, O man, and grasps you with a grasping.
Isa 22:18 Whirling, He will whirl you like a ball, into a land wide of hands. You shall die there, and there are the chariots of your glory, the shame of your lord’s house.
Isa 22:19 And I will drive you from your position, and he will pull you from your station.
Isa 22:20 And in that day it shall be, even I will call to My servant Eliakim the son of Hilkiah.
Isa 22:21 And I will clothe him with your robe and will fasten your sash on him. And I will give your authority into his hand. And he shall be a father to the ones living in Jerusalem and to the house of Judah.
Isa 22:22 And the key of the house of David I will lay on his shoulder, so that he opens, and no one shuts; and he shuts, and no one opens.
Isa 22:23 And I will drive him as a nail in a sure place; and he shall be for a throne of glory to his father’s house.
Isa 22:24 And they shall hang on him all the glory of his father’s house, the offspring and the offshoots, all small vessels, from vessels of cups even to all vessels of jars.
Isa 22:25 In that day, says Jehovah of Hosts, the nail that is driven in the sure place shall be removed, and be cut down, and fall. And the burden that was on it shall be cut off. Jehovah has spoken.

On this day...
