Isaiah 1 (WEBP)

[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.
[2] Hear, heavens, and listen, earth; for Yahweh° has spoken: “I have nourished and brought up children and they have rebelled against me.
[3] The ox knows his owner, and the donkey his master’s crib; but Israel doesn’t know. My people don’t consider.”
[4] Ah sinful nation, a people loaded with iniquity, offspring§ of evildoers, children who deal corruptly! They have forsaken Yahweh. They have despised the Holy One of Israel. They are estranged and backward.
[5] Why should you be beaten more, that you revolt more and more? The whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.
[6] From the sole of the foot even to the head there is no soundness in it, but wounds, welts, and open sores. They haven’t been closed, bandaged, or soothed with oil.
[7] Your country is desolate. Your cities are burned with fire. Strangers devour your land in your presence and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.
[8] The daughter of Zion is left like a shelter in a vineyard, like a hut in a field of melons, like a besieged city.
[9] Unless Yahweh of Armies had left to us a very small remnant, we would have been as Sodom. We would have been like Gomorrah.
[10] Hear Yahweh’s word, you rulers of Sodom! Listen to the law of our God,§ you people of Gomorrah!
[11] “What are the multitude of your sacrifices to me?”, says Yahweh. “I have had enough of the burnt offerings of rams and the fat of fed animals. I don’t delight in the blood of bulls, or of lambs, or of male goats.
[12] When you come to appear before me, who has required this at your hand, to trample my courts?
[13] Bring no more vain offerings. Incense is an abomination to me. New moons, Sabbaths, and convocations— I can’t stand evil assemblies.
[14] My soul hates your New Moons and your appointed feasts. They are a burden to me. I am weary of bearing them.
[15] When you spread out your hands, I will hide my eyes from you. Yes, when you make many prayers, I will not hear. Your hands are full of blood.
[16] Wash yourselves. Make yourself clean. Put away the evil of your doings from before my eyes. Cease to do evil.
[17] Learn to do well. Seek justice. Relieve the oppressed. Defend the fatherless. Plead for the widow.”
[18] “Come now, and let’s reason together,” says Yahweh: “Though your sins are as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow. Though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
[19] If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good of the land;
[20] but if you refuse and rebel, you will be devoured with the sword; for Yahweh’s mouth has spoken it.”
[21] How the faithful city has become a prostitute! She was full of justice. Righteousness lodged in her, but now there are murderers.
[22] Your silver has become dross, your wine mixed with water.
[23] Your princes are rebellious and companions of thieves. Everyone loves bribes and follows after rewards. They don’t defend the fatherless, neither does the cause of the widow come to them.
[24] Therefore the Lord,§ Yahweh of Armies, the Mighty One of Israel, says: “Ah, I will get relief from my adversaries, and avenge myself on my enemies.
[25] I will turn my hand on you, thoroughly purge away your dross, and will take away all your tin.°
[26] I will restore your judges as at the first, and your counselors as at the beginning. Afterward you shall be called ‘The city of righteousness, a faithful town.’
[27] Zion shall be redeemed with justice, and her converts with righteousness.
[28] But the destruction of transgressors and sinners shall be together, and those who forsake Yahweh shall be consumed.
[29] For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which you have desired, and you shall be confounded for the gardens that you have chosen.
[30] For you shall be as an oak whose leaf fades, and as a garden that has no water.
[31] The strong will be like tinder, and his work like a spark. They will both burn together, and no one will quench them.”

Isaiah 1 (KJVS)

[1] The vision H2377 of Isaiah H3470 the son H1121 of Amoz H531, which he saw H2372 (8804) concerning Judah H3063 and Jerusalem H3389 in the days H3117 of Uzziah H5818, Jotham H3147, Ahaz H271, [and] Hezekiah H3169, kings H4428 of Judah H3063.
[2] Hear H8085 (8798), O heavens H8064, and give ear H238 (8685), O earth H776: for the LORD H3068 hath spoken H1696 (8765), I have nourished H1431 (8765) and brought up H7311 (8790) children H1121, and they have rebelled H6586 (8804) against me.
[3] The ox H7794 knoweth H3045 (8804) his owner H7069 (8802), and the ass H2543 his master’s H1167 crib H18: [but] Israel H3478 doth not know H3045 (8804), my people H5971 doth not consider H995 (8712).
[4] Ah H1945 sinful H2398 (8802) nation H1471, a people H5971 laden H3515 with iniquity H5771, a seed H2233 of evildoers H7489 (8688), children H1121 that are corrupters H7843 (8688): they have forsaken H5800 (8804) H853 the LORD H3068, they have provoked H5006 H853 the Holy One H6918 of Israel H3478 unto anger H5006 (8765), they are gone away H2114 (8738) backward H268.
[5] Why should ye be stricken H5221 (8714) any more? ye will revolt H5627 more and more H3254 (8686): the whole head H7218 is sick H2483, and the whole heart H3824 faint H1742.
[6] From the sole H3709 of the foot H7272 even unto the head H7218 [there is] no soundness H4974 in it; [but] wounds H6482, and bruises H2250, and putrifying H2961 sores H4347: they have not been closed H2115 (8804), neither bound up H2280 (8795), neither mollified H7401 (8795) with ointment H8081.
[7] Your country H776 [is] desolate H8077, your cities H5892 [are] burned H8313 (8803) with fire H784: your land H127, strangers H2114 (8801) devour H398 (8802) it in your presence, and [it is] desolate H8077, as overthrown H4114 by strangers H2114 (8801).
[8] And the daughter H1323 of Zion H6726 is left H3498 (8738) as a cottage H5521 in a vineyard H3754, as a lodge H4412 in a garden of cucumbers H4750, as a besieged H5341 (8803) city H5892.
[9] Except H3884 the LORD H3068 of hosts H6635 had left H3498 (8689) unto us a very small H4592 remnant H8300, we should have been H1961 (8804) as Sodom H5467, [and] we should have been like H1819 (8804) unto Gomorrah H6017.
[10] Hear H8085 (8798) the word H1697 of the LORD H3068, ye rulers H7101 of Sodom H5467; give ear H238 (8685) unto the law H8451 of our God H430, ye people H5971 of Gomorrah H6017.
[11] To what H4100 purpose [is] the multitude H7230 of your sacrifices H2077 unto me? saith H559 (8799) the LORD H3068: I am full H7646 (8804) of the burnt offerings H5930 of rams H352, and the fat H2459 of fed beasts H4806; and I delight H2654 (8804) not in the blood H1818 of bullocks H6499, or of lambs H3532, or of he goats H6260.
[12] When ye come H935 (8799) to appear H7200 (8736) before H6440 me, who hath required H1245 (8765) this at your hand H3027, to tread H7429 (8800) my courts H2691?
[13] Bring H935 (8687) no more H3254 (8686) vain H7723 oblations H4503; incense H7004 is an abomination H8441 unto me; the new moons H2320 and sabbaths H7676, the calling H7121 (8800) of assemblies H4744, I cannot away with H3201 (8799); [it is] iniquity H205, even the solemn meeting H6116.
[14] Your new moons H2320 and your appointed feasts H4150 my soul H5315 hateth H8130 (8804): they are a trouble H2960 unto me; I am weary H3811 (8738) to bear H5375 (8800) [them].
[15] And when ye spread forth H6566 (8763) your hands H3709, I will hide H5956 (8686) mine eyes H5869 from you: yea, when ye make many H7235 (8686) prayers H8605, I will not hear H8085 (8802): your hands H3027 are full H4390 (8804) of blood H1818.
[16] Wash H7364 (8798) you, make you clean H2135 (8690); put away H5493 (8685) the evil H7455 of your doings H4611 from before H5048 mine eyes H5869; cease H2308 (8798) to do evil H7489 (8687);
[17] Learn H3925 (8798) to do well H3190 (8687); seek H1875 (8798) judgment H4941, relieve H833 (8761) the oppressed H2541, judge H8199 (8798) the fatherless H3490, plead H7378 (8798) for the widow H490.
[18] Come now H3212 (8798), and let us reason together H3198 (8735), saith H559 (8799) the LORD H3068: though your sins H2399 be as scarlet H8144, they shall be as white H3835 (8686) as snow H7950; though they be red H119 (8686) like crimson H8438, they shall be as wool H6785.
[19] If ye be willing H14 (8799) and obedient H8085 (8804), ye shall eat H398 (8799) the good H2898 of the land H776:
[20] But if ye refuse H3985 (8762) and rebel H4784 (8804), ye shall be devoured H398 (8792) with the sword H2719: for the mouth H6310 of the LORD H3068 hath spoken H1696 (8765) [it].
[21] How is the faithful H539 (8737) city H7151 become an harlot H2181 (8802)! it was full H4392 of judgment H4941; righteousness H6664 lodged H3885 (8799) in it; but now murderers H7523 (8764).
[22] Thy silver H3701 is become dross H5509, thy wine H5435 mixed H4107 (8803) with water H4325:
[23] Thy princes H8269 [are] rebellious H5637 (8802), and companions H2270 of thieves H1590: every one loveth H157 (8802) gifts H7810, and followeth H7291 (8802) after rewards H8021: they judge H8199 (8799) not the fatherless H3490, neither doth the cause H7379 of the widow H490 come H935 (8799) unto them.
[24] Therefore saith H5002 (8803) the Lord H113, the LORD H3068 of hosts H6635, the mighty One H46 of Israel H3478, Ah H1945, I will ease H5162 (8735) me of mine adversaries H6862, and avenge H5358 (8735) me of mine enemies H341 (8802):
[25] And I will turn H7725 (8686) my hand H3027 upon thee, and purely H1253 purge away H6884 (8799) thy dross H5509, and take away H5493 (8686) all thy tin H913:
[26] And I will restore H7725 (8686) thy judges H8199 (8802) as at the first H7223, and thy counsellors H3289 (8802) as at the beginning H8462: afterward H310 thou shalt be called H7121 (8735), The city H5892 of righteousness H6664, the faithful H539 (8737) city H7151.
[27] Zion H6726 shall be redeemed H6299 (8735) with judgment H4941, and her converts H7725 (8802) with righteousness H6666.
[28] And the destruction H7667 of the transgressors H6586 (8802) and of the sinners H2400 [shall be] together H3162, and they that forsake H5800 (8802) the LORD H3068 shall be consumed H3615 (8799).
[29] For they shall be ashamed H954 (8799) of the oaks H352 which ye have desired H2530 (8804), and ye shall be confounded H2659 (8799) for the gardens H1593 that ye have chosen H977 (8804).
[30] For ye shall be as an oak H424 whose leaf H5929 fadeth H5034 (8802), and as a garden H1593 that hath no water H4325.
[31] And the strong H2634 shall be as tow H5296, and the maker H6467 of it as a spark H5213, and they shall both H8147 burn H1197 (8804) together H3162, and none shall quench H3518 (8764) [them].

Young’s Literal Translation

Isaiah 1 (YLT)

[1] The Visions of Isaiah son of Amoz, that he hath seen concerning Judah and Jerusalem, in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, Hezekiah, kings of Judah.
[2] Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth, For Jehovah hath spoken: Sons I have nourished and brought up, And they-they transgressed against Me.
[3] An ox hath known its owner, And an ass the crib of its master, Israel hath not known, My people hath not understood.
[4] Ah, sinning nation, a people heavy with iniquity, A seed of evil doers, sons-corrupters! They have forsaken Jehovah, They have despised the Holy One of Israel, They have gone away backward.
[5] Wherefore are ye stricken any more? Ye do add apostasy! Every head is become diseased, and every heart is sick.
[6] From the sole of the foot-unto the head, There is no soundness in it, Wound, and bruise, and fresh smiting! They have not been closed nor bound, Nor have they softened with ointment.
[7] Your land is a desolation, your cities burnt with fire, Your ground, before you strangers are consuming it, And a desolation as overthrown by strangers!
[8] And left hath been the daughter of Zion, As a booth in a vineyard, As a lodge in a place of cucumbers-as a city besieged.
[9] Unless Jehovah of Hosts had left to us a remnant, Shortly-as Sodom we had been, To Gomorrah we had been like!
[10] Hear the word of Jehovah, ye rulers of Sodom, Give ear to the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah,
[11] ‘Why to Me the abundance of your sacrifices? saith Jehovah, I have been satiated with burnt-offerings of rams, And fat of fatlings; And blood of bullocks, and lambs, And he-goats I have not desired.
[12] When ye come in to appear before Me, Who hath required this of your hand, To trample My courts?
[13] Add not to bring in a vain present, Incense-an abomination it is to Me, New moon, and sabbath, calling of convocation! Rendure not iniquity-and a restraint!
[14] Your new moons and your set seasons hath My soul hated, They have been upon me for a burden, I have been weary of bearing.
[15] And in your spreading forth your hands, I hide mine eyes from you, Also when ye increase prayer, I do not hear, Your hands of blood have been full.
[16] Wash ye, make ye pure, Turn aside the evil of your doings, from before Mine eyes, Cease to do evil, learn to do good.
[17] Seek judgment, make happy the oppressed, Judge the fatherless, strive for the widow.
[18] Come, I pray you, and we reason, saith Jehovah, If your sins are as scarlet, as snow they shall be white, If they are red as crimson, as wool they shall be!
[19] If ye are willing, and have hearkened, The good of the land ye consume,
[20] And if ye refuse, and have rebelled, By the sword ye are consumed, For the mouth of Jehovah hath spoken.
[21] How hath a faithful city become a harlot? I have filled it with judgment, Righteousness lodgeth in it-now murderers.
[22] Thy silver hath become dross, Thy drink polluted with water.
[23] Thy princes are apostates, and companions of thieves, Every one loving a bribe, and pursuing rewards, The fatherless they judge not, And the plea of the widow cometh not to them.
[24] Therefore-the affirmation of the Lord- Jehovah of Hosts, the Mighty One of Israel: Ah, I am eased of Mine adversaries, And I am avenged of Mine enemies,
[25] And I turn back My hand upon thee, And I refine as purity thy dross, And I turn aside all thy tin,
[26] And I give back thy judges as at the first, And thy counsellors as in the beginning, After this thou art called, ‘A city of righteousness-a faithful city.’
[27] Zion in judgment is redeemed, And her captivity in righteousness.
[28] And the destruction of transgressors and sinners is together, And those forsaking Jehovah are consumed.
[29] For men are ashamed because of the oaks That ye have desired, And ye are confounded because of the gardens That ye have chosen.
[30] For ye are as an oak whose leaf is fading, And as a garden that hath no water.
[31] And the strong hath been for tow, And his work for a spark, And burned have both of them together, And there is none quenching!
