Isaiah 24

Isa 24:1 Lo, Jehovah empties the land and makes it bare, and distorts its face, and scatters those living in it.
Isa 24:2 And as it is with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with the master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the creditor, so with the debtor.
Isa 24:3 The land shall completely be emptied and utterly stripped, for Jehovah has spoken this Word.
Isa 24:4 The land mourns and languishes; the world droops and languishes; the proud people of the earth droop.
Isa 24:5 And the earth is profaned under those living in it, because they transgress laws and violate a statute, and break the everlasting covenant.
Isa 24:6 On account of this a curse has devoured the land; and they who live in it are held guilty. For this those living in the land are consumed, and few men are left.
Isa 24:7 The new wine has failed; the vine droops; all the merry-hearted sigh.
Isa 24:8 The exultation of timbrels ceases; the noise of those who revel ends; the exultation of the harp ceases.
Isa 24:9 They shall not drink wine with a song; fermented drink shall be bitter to those who drink it.
Isa 24:10 The city of shame is broken down; every house is shut, that no one may enter.
Isa 24:11 A crying over the wine is in the streets; all joy is darkened; the gladness in the land is exiled.
Isa 24:12 Desolation is remaining in the city, and a ruin; the gate is battered.
Isa 24:13 For it is thus in the midst of the land, among the peoples, it shall be as the shaking of an olive tree, and as gleanings when the grape harvest is completed.
Isa 24:14 They lift up their voice; they sing for the majesty of Jehovah; they cry aloud from the sea.
Isa 24:15 On account of this, glorify Jehovah in the flames, the name of Jehovah God of Israel, in the coasts of the sea.
Isa 24:16 We have heard songs from the end of the earth, Honor to the Righteous. But I said, Leanness to me! Leanness to me! Woe to me! Traitors betray, even with treachery; traitors betray!
Isa 24:17 Dread, and the pit, and a snare are upon you, one living in the earth.
Isa 24:18 And it shall be, he who flees from the sound of dread shall fall into the pit. And he who comes up out of the middle of the pit shall be taken in the snare. For the windows from on high are opened, and the earth’s foundations quake.
Isa 24:19 The earth is breaking, breaking! The earth is crashing, crashing! The earth is tottering, tottering.
Isa 24:20 Like a drunkard, the earth is staggering, staggering! And it rocks to and fro like a hut. And its trespass is heavy on it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.
Isa 24:21 And it shall be in that day, Jehovah shall punish the army of the high place on high, and on the kings of the land on the land.
Isa 24:22 And they will be gathered, a gathering of prisoners in a dungeon. And they shall be shut up in a prison; and after many days they will be visited.
Isa 24:23 Then the moon shall blush, and the sun shall be ashamed, when Jehovah of Hosts shall reign in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem; and before His elders is His glory.

On this day...
