Isaiah 30

30:1 Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, that take
 counsel, but not from me; and that cover with a covering, but
 not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:
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 shade of Egypt!
30:3 Therefore shall the strength of Pharaoh be your shame, and
 the trust in the shade of Egypt [your] confusion.
30:4 For his princes were at Zoan, and his embassadors came to
30:5 They were all ashamed of a people [that] could not profit
 them, nor be a help nor profit, but a shame, and also a
30:6 The burden of the beasts of the south: into the land of
 trouble and anguish, from whence [come] the young and the old
 lion, the viper and 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
30:7 For the Egyptian shall help in vain, and to no purpose:
 therefore have I cried concerning this, Their strength [is] to
 sit still.
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:
30:9 That this [is] a rebellious people, lying children,
 children [that] will not hear the law of the LORD:
30:10 Who say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets,
 Prophesy not to us right things, speak to us smooth things,
 prophesy deceits:
30:11 Withdraw from the way, turn aside from the path, cause the
 Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.
30:12 Wherefore thus saith the Holy One of Israel, Because ye
 despise this word, and trust in oppression and perverseness,
 and lean upon it:
30:13 Therefore this iniquity shall be to you as a breach ready
 to fall, swelling out in a high wall, whose breaking cometh
 suddenly at an instant.
30:14 And he shall break it as the breaking of the potter's
 vessel that is broken in pieces; he shall not spare: so that
 there shall not be found in the bursting of it a piece to take
 fire from the hearth, or to take water out of the pit.
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.
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.
30:17 One thousand [shall flee] at the rebuke of one; at the
 rebuke of five shall ye flee: till ye be left as a beacon upon
 the top of a mountain, and as an ensign on a hill.
30:18 And therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious
 to you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have
 mercy upon you: for the LORD [is] a God of judgment: blessed
 [are] all they that wait for him.
30:19 For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem: thou
 shalt weep no more: he will be very gracious to thee at the
 voice of thy cry; when he shall hear it, he will answer thee.
30:20 And [though] the LORD shall give you the bread of
 adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy
 teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thy eyes shall
 see thy teachers:
30:21 And thy 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.
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 polluted cloth; thou shalt say to it,
 Be gone from me.
30:23 Then shall he give the rain of thy seed, with which thou
 shalt sow the ground; 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.
30:24 The oxen likewise and the young asses that plow the ground
 shall eat clean provender, which hath been winnowed with the
 shovel and with the fan.
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.
30:26 Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of
 the sun, and the light of the sun shall be seven-fold, 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.
30:27 Behold, the name of the LORD cometh from far, burning
 [with] his anger, and the burden [of it is] heavy: his lips are
 full of indignation, and his tongue as a devouring fire:
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.
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 upon the mountain of the LORD, to the
 mighty One of Israel.
30:30 And the LORD shall cause his glorious voice to be heard,
 and shall show 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.
30:31 For through the voice of the LORD shall the Assyrian be
 beaten down, [who] smote with a rod.
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.
30:33 For Tophet [is] ordained of old; yes, for the king it is
 prepared; he hath made [it] deep [and] large: the pile of it
 [is] fire and much wood; the breath of the LORD, like a stream
 of brimstone, doth kindle it.
