Yeshayahu (Book of Isaiah), Chapter 33

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 Woe to thee that spoilest, and thou wast not spoiled; and dealest treacherously, and they dealt not treacherously with thee! When thou hast ceased to spoil, thou shalt be spoiled; and when thou art weary with dealing treacherously, they shall deal treacherously with thee.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 O HaShem, be gracious unto us; we have waited for Thee; be Thou their arm every morning, our salvation also in the time of trouble.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 At the noise of the tumult the peoples are fled; at the lifting up of Thyself the nations are scattered.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 And your spoil is gathered as the caterpillar gathereth; as locusts leap do they leap upon it.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 HaShem is exalted, for He dwelleth on high; He hath filled Zion with justice and righteousness.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 And the stability of thy times shall be a hoard of salvation--wisdom and knowledge, and the fear of HaShem which is His treasurer

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 Behold, their valiant ones cry without; the ambassadors of peace weep bitterly.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 The highways lie waste, the wayfaring man ceaseth; he hath broken the covenant, he hath despised the cities, he regardeth not man.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 The land mourneth and languisheth; Lebanon is ashamed, it withereth; Sharon is like a wilderness; and Bashan and Carmel are clean bare.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 Now will I arise, saith HaShem; now will I be exalted; now will I lift Myself up.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 Ye conceive chaff, ye shall bring forth stubble; your breath is a fire that shall devour you.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 And the peoples shall be as the burnings of lime; as thorns cut down, that are burned in the fire.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 Hear, ye that are far off, what I have done; and, ye that are near, acknowledge My might.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'14 The sinners in Zion are afraid; trembling hath seized the ungodly: 'Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? Who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?'

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'15 He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from looking upon evil;

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000F-QINU`"'16 He shall dwell on high; his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks; his bread shall be given, his waters shall be sure.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000010-QINU`"'17 Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty; they shall behold a land stretching afar.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000011-QINU`"'18 Thy heart shall muse on the terror: 'Where is he that counted, where is he that weighed? Where is he that counted the towers?'

'"`UNIQ--named-00000012-QINU`"'19 Thou shalt not see the fierce people; a people of a deep speech that thou canst not perceive, of a stammering tongue that thou canst not understand.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000013-QINU`"'20 Look upon Zion, the city of our solemn gatherings; thine eyes shall see Jerusalem a peaceful habitation, a tent that shall not be removed, the stakes whereof shall never be plucked up, neither shall any of the cords thereof be broken.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000014-QINU`"'21 But there HaShem will be with us in majesty, in a place of broad rivers and streams; wherein shall go no galley with oars, neither shall gallant ship pass thereby.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000015-QINU`"'22 For HaShem is our Judge, HaShem is our Lawgiver, HaShem is our King; He will save us.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000016-QINU`"'23 Thy tacklings are loosed; they do not hold the stand of their mast, they do not spread the sail; then is the prey of a great spoil divided; the lame take the prey.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000017-QINU`"'24 And the inhabitant shall not say: 'I am sick'; the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity.
