Isaiah 10 (WEBP)

[1] Woe to those who decree unrighteous decrees, and to the writers who write oppressive decrees
[2] to deprive the needy of justice, and to rob the poor among my people of their rights, that widows may be their plunder, and that they may make the fatherless their prey!
[3] What will you do in the day of visitation, and in the desolation which will come from afar? To whom will you flee for help? Where will you leave your wealth?
[4] They will only bow down under the prisoners, and will fall under the slain. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
[5] Alas Assyrian, the rod of my anger, the staff in whose hand is my indignation!
[6] I will send him against a profane nation, and against the people who anger me I will give him a command to take the plunder and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets.
[7] However, he doesn’t mean so, neither does his heart think so; but it is in his heart to destroy, and to cut off not a few nations.
[8] For he says, “Aren’t all of my princes kings?
[9] Isn’t Calno like Carchemish? Isn’t Hamath like Arpad? Isn’t Samaria like Damascus?”
[10] As my hand has found the kingdoms of the idols, whose engraved images exceeded those of Jerusalem and of Samaria,
[11] shall I not, as I have done to Samaria and her idols, so do to Jerusalem and her idols?
[12] Therefore it will happen that when the Lord has performed his whole work on Mount Zion and on Jerusalem, I will punish the fruit of the willful proud heart of the king of Assyria, and the insolence of his arrogant looks.
[13] For he has said, “By the strength of my hand I have done it, and by my wisdom, for I have understanding. I have removed the boundaries of the peoples, and have robbed their treasures. Like a valiant man I have brought down their rulers.
[14] My hand has found the riches of the peoples like a nest, and like one gathers eggs that are abandoned, I have gathered all the earth. There was no one who moved their wing, or that opened their mouth, or chirped.”
[15] Should an ax brag against him who chops with it? Should a saw exalt itself above him who saws with it? As if a rod should lift those who lift it up, or as if a staff should lift up someone who is not wood.
[16] Therefore the Lord, Yahweh of Armies, will send among his fat ones leanness; and under his glory a burning will be kindled like the burning of fire.
[17] The light of Israel will be for a fire, and his Holy One for a flame; and it will burn and devour his thorns and his briers in one day.
[18] He will consume the glory of his forest and of his fruitful field, both soul and body. It will be as when a standard bearer faints.
[19] The remnant of the trees of his forest shall be few, so that a child could write their number.
[20] It will come to pass in that day that the remnant of Israel, and those who have escaped from the house of Jacob will no more again lean on him who struck them, but shall lean on Yahweh, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.
[21] A remnant will return, even the remnant of Jacob, to the mighty God.
[22] For though your people, Israel, are like the sand of the sea, only a remnant of them will return. A destruction is determined, overflowing with righteousness.
[23] For the Lord, Yahweh of Armies, will make a full end, and that determined, throughout all the earth.
[24] Therefore the Lord, Yahweh of Armies, says, “My people who dwell in Zion, don’t be afraid of the Assyrian, though he strike you with the rod, and lift up his staff against you, as Egypt did.
[25] For yet a very little while, and the indignation against you will be accomplished, and my anger will be directed to his destruction.”
[26] Yahweh of Armies will stir up a scourge against him, as in the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb. His rod will be over the sea, and he will lift it up like he did against Egypt.
[27] It will happen in that day that his burden will depart from off your shoulder, and his yoke from off your neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing oil.
[28] He has come to Aiath. He has passed through Migron. At Michmash he stores his baggage.
[29] They have gone over the pass. They have taken up their lodging at Geba. Ramah trembles. Gibeah of Saul has fled.
[30] Cry aloud with your voice, daughter of Gallim! Listen, Laishah! You poor Anathoth!
[31] Madmenah is a fugitive. The inhabitants of Gebim flee for safety.
[32] This very day he will halt at Nob. He shakes his hand at the mountain of the daughter of Zion, the hill of Jerusalem.
[33] Behold, the Lord, Yahweh of Armies, will lop the boughs with terror. The tall will be cut down, and the lofty will be brought low.
[34] He will cut down the thickets of the forest with iron, and Lebanon will fall by the Mighty One.

King James w/Strong’s #s

Isaiah 10 (KJVS)

[1] Woe H1945 unto them that decree H2710 (8802) unrighteous H205 decrees H2711, and that write H3789 (8764) grievousness H5999 [which] they have prescribed H3789 (8765);
[2] To turn aside H5186 (8687) the needy H1800 from judgment H1779, and to take away H1497 (8800) the right H4941 from the poor H6041 of my people H5971, that widows H490 may be their prey H7998, and [that] they may rob H962 (8799) the fatherless H3490!
[3] And what will ye do H6213 (8799) in the day H3117 of visitation H6486, and in the desolation H7722 [which] shall come H935 (8799) from far H4801? to whom will ye flee H5127 (8799) for help H5833? and where will ye leave H5800 (8799) your glory H3519?
[4] Without me they shall H1115 bow down H3766 (8804) under the prisoners H616, and they shall fall H5307 (8799) under the slain H2026 (8803). For all this his anger H639 is not turned away H7725 (8804), but his hand H3027 [is] stretched out still H5186 (8803).
[5] O H1945 Assyrian H804, the rod H7626 of mine anger H639, and the staff H4294 in their hand H3027 is mine indignation H2195.
[6] I will send H7971 (8762) him against an hypocritical H2611 nation H1471, and against the people H5971 of my wrath H5678 will I give him a charge H6680 (8762), to take H7997 (8800) the spoil H7998, and to take H962 (8800) the prey H957, and to tread them down H7760 (8800) H4823 like the mire H2563 of the streets H2351.
[7] Howbeit he meaneth H1819 (8762) not so, neither doth his heart H3824 think H2803 (8799) so; but [it is] in his heart H3824 to destroy H8045 (8687) and cut off H3772 (8687) nations H1471 not a few H4592.
[8] For he saith H559 (8799), [Are] not my princes H8269 altogether H3162 kings H4428?
[9] [Is] not Calno H3641 as Carchemish H3751? [is] not Hamath H2574 as Arpad H774? [is] not Samaria H8111 as Damascus H1834?
[10] As my hand H3027 hath found H4672 (8804) the kingdoms H4467 of the idols H457, and whose graven images H6456 did excel them of Jerusalem H3389 and of Samaria H8111;
[11] Shall I not, as I have done H6213 (8804) unto Samaria H8111 and her idols H457, so do H6213 (8799) to Jerusalem H3389 and her idols H6091?
[12] Wherefore it shall come to pass, [that] when the Lord H136 hath performed H1214 (8762) his whole work H4639 upon mount H2022 Zion H6726 and on Jerusalem H3389, I will punish H6485 (8799) the fruit H6529 of the stout H1433 heart H3824 of the king H4428 of Assyria H804, and the glory H8597 of his high H7312 looks H5869.
[13] For he saith H559 (8804), By the strength H3581 of my hand H3027 I have done H6213 (8804) [it], and by my wisdom H2451; for I am prudent H995 (8738): and I have removed H5493 (8686) the bounds H1367 of the people H5971, and have robbed H8154 (8782) their treasures H6259 (8675) H6264, and I have put down H3381 (8686) the inhabitants H3427 (8802) like a valiant H47 H3524 [man]:
[14] And my hand H3027 hath found H4672 (8799) as a nest H7064 the riches H2428 of the people H5971: and as one gathereth H622 (8800) eggs H1000 [that are] left H5800 (8803), have I gathered H622 (8804) all the earth H776; and there was none that moved H5074 (8802) the wing H3671, or opened H6475 (8802) the mouth H6310, or peeped H6850 (8772).
[15] Shall the axe H1631 boast H6286 (8691) itself against him that heweth H2672 (8802) therewith? [or] shall the saw H4883 magnify H1431 (8691) itself against him that shaketh H5130 (8688) it? as if the rod H7626 should shake H5130 (8687) [itself] against them that lift it up H7311 (8688), [or] as if the staff H4294 should lift up H7311 (8687) [itself, as if it were] no wood H6086.
[16] Therefore shall the Lord H113, the Lord H136 (8676) H3068 of hosts H6635, send H7971 (8762) among his fat ones H4924 leanness H7332; and under his glory H3519 he shall kindle H3344 (8799) a burning H3350 like the burning of a fire H784.
[17] And the light H216 of Israel H3478 shall be for a fire H784, and his Holy One H6918 for a flame H3852: and it shall burn H1197 (8804) and devour H398 (8804) his thorns H7898 and his briers H8068 in one H259 day H3117;
[18] And shall consume H3615 (8762) the glory H3519 of his forest H3293, and of his fruitful field H3759, both soul H5315 and body H1320: and they shall be as when a standardbearer H5263 (8802) fainteth H4549 (8800).
[19] And the rest H7605 of the trees H6086 of his forest H3293 shall be few H4557, that a child H5288 may write H3789 (8799) them.
[20] And it shall come to pass in that day H3117, [that] the remnant H7605 of Israel H3478, and such as are escaped H6413 of the house H1004 of Jacob H3290, shall no more again H3254 (8686) stay H8172 (8736) upon him that smote H5221 (8688) them; but shall stay H8172 (8738) upon the LORD H3068, the Holy One H6918 of Israel H3478, in truth H571.
[21] The remnant H7605 shall return H7725 (8799), [even] the remnant H7605 of Jacob H3290, unto the mighty H1368 God H410.
[22] For though thy people H5971 Israel H3478 be as the sand H2344 of the sea H3220, [yet] a remnant H7605 of them shall return H7725 (8799): the consumption H3631 decreed H2782 (8803) shall overflow H7857 (8802) with righteousness H6666.
[23] For the Lord H136 GOD H3069 of hosts H6635 shall make H6213 (8802) a consumption H3617, even determined H2782 (8737), in the midst H7130 of all the land H776.
[24] Therefore thus saith H559 (8804) the Lord H136 GOD H3069 of hosts H6635, O my people H5971 that dwellest H3427 (8802) in Zion H6726, be not afraid H3372 (8799) of the Assyrian H804: he shall smite H5221 (8686) thee with a rod H7626, and shall lift up H5375 (8799) his staff H4294 against thee, after the manner H1870 of Egypt H4714.
[25] For yet a very H4213 little while H4592, and the indignation H2195 shall cease H3615 (8804), and mine anger H639 in their destruction H8399.
[26] And the LORD H3068 of hosts H6635 shall stir up H5782 (8790) a scourge H7752 for him according to the slaughter H4347 of Midian H4080 at the rock H6697 of Oreb H6159: and [as] his rod H4294 [was] upon the sea H3220, so shall he lift it up H5375 (8804) after the manner H1870 of Egypt H4714.
[27] And it shall come to pass in that day H3117, [that] his burden H5448 shall be taken away H5493 (8799) from off thy shoulder H7926, and his yoke H5923 from off thy neck H6677, and the yoke H5923 shall be destroyed H2254 (8795) because H6440 of the anointing H8081.
[28] He is come H935 (8804) to Aiath H5857, he is passed H5674 (8804) to Migron H4051; at Michmash H4363 he hath laid up H6485 (8686) his carriages H3627:
[29] They are gone over H5674 (8804) the passage H4569: they have taken up their lodging H4411 at Geba H1387; Ramah H7414 is afraid H2729 (8804); Gibeah H1390 of Saul H7586 is fled H5127 (8804).
[30] Lift up H6670 (8761) thy voice H6963, O daughter H1323 of H1530 Gallim H1554: cause it to be heard H7181 (8685) unto Laish H3919, O poor H6041 Anathoth H6068.
[31] Madmenah H4088 is removed H5074 (8804); the inhabitants H3427 (8802) of Gebim H1374 gather themselves to flee H5756 (8689).
[32] As yet shall he remain H5975 (8800) at Nob H5011 that day H3117: he shall shake H5130 (8787) his hand H3027 [against] the mount H2022 of the daughter H1323 (8675) H1004 of Zion H6726, the hill H1389 of Jerusalem H3389.
[33] Behold, the Lord H113, the LORD H3068 of hosts H6635, shall lop H5586 (8764) the bough H6288 with terror H4637: and the high ones H7311 (8802) of stature H6967 [shall be] hewn down H1438 (8803), and the haughty H1364 shall be humbled H8213 (8799).
[34] And he shall cut down H5362 (8765) the thickets H5442 of the forest H3293 with iron H1270, and Lebanon H3844 shall fall H5307 (8799) by a mighty one H117.

Young’s Literal Translation

Isaiah 10 (YLT)

[1] Woe to those decreeing decrees of iniquity, And writers who have prescribed perverseness.
[2] To turn aside from judgment the poor, And to take violently away the judgment Of the afflicted of My people, That widows may be their prey, That the fatherless they may spoil.
[3] And what do ye at a day of inspection? And at desolation?-from afar it cometh. Near whom do ye flee for help? And where do ye leave your honour?
[4] Without Me it hath bowed down In the place of a bound one, And in the place of the slain they fall. With all this not turned back hath His anger, And still His hand is stretched out.
[5] Woe to Asshur, a rod of Mine anger, And a staff in their hand is Mine indignation.
[6] Against a profane nation I send him, And concerning a people of My wrath I charge him, To spoil spoil, and to seize prey, And to make it a treading-place as the clay of out places.
[7] And he-he thinketh not so, And his heart reckoneth not so, For-to destroy is in his heart, And to cut off nations not a few.
[8] For he saith, ‘Are not my princes altogether kings?
[9] Is not Calno as Carchemish? Is not Hamath as Arpad? Is not Samaria as Damascus?
[10] As my hand hath got to the kingdoms of a worthless thing, and their graven images, Greater than Jerusalem and than Samaria,
[11] Do I not-as I have done to Samaria, And to her worthless things, So do to Jerusalem and to her grievous things?
[12] And it hath come to pass, When the Lord doth fulfil all His work In mount Zion and in Jerusalem, I see concerning the fruit of the greatness Of the heart of the king of Asshur. And concerning the glory of the height of his eyes.
[13] For he hath said, ‘By the power of my hand I have wrought, And by my wisdom, for I have been intelligent, And I remove borders of the peoples, And their chief ones I have spoiled, And I put down as a mighty one the inhabitants,
[14] And my hand as to a nest Getteth to the wealth of the peoples, And as a gathering of forsaken eggs All the earth I-I have gathered, And there hath not been one moving wing, Or opening mouth, or whispering.’
[15] -Doth the axe glorify itself Against him who is hewing with it? Doth the saw magnify itself Against him who is shaking it? As a rod waving those lifting it up! As a staff lifting up that which is not wood!
[16] Therefore doth the Lord, the Lord of Hosts, Send among his fat ones leanness, And under his honour He kindleth a burning As the burning of a fire.
[17] And the light of Israel hath been for a fire, And his Holy One for a flame, And it hath burned, and devoured his thorn And his brier in one day.
[18] And the honour of his forest, and his fruitful field, From soul even unto flesh He doth consume, And it hath been as the fainting of a standard-bearer.
[19] And the rest of the trees of his forest are few, And a youth doth write them.
[20] And it hath come to pass, in that day, The remnant of Israel, And the escaped of the house of Jacob, Do not add any more to lean on its smiter, And have leant on Jehovah, The Holy One of Israel, in truth.
[21] A remnant returneth-a remnant of Jacob, Unto the Mighty God.
[22] For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, A remnant doth return of it, A consumption determined, Overflowing with righteousness.
[23] For a consumption that is determined, The Lord, Jehovah of Hosts, Is making in the midst of all the land.
[24] Therefore, thus said the Lord, Jehovah of Hosts, ‘Be not afraid, my people, inhabiting Zion, because of Asshur, With a rod he doth smite thee, And his staff lifteth up against thee, in the way of Egypt.
[25] For yet a very little, And the indignation hath been completed, And Mine anger by their wearing out.
[26] And awaking for him is Jehovah of Hosts, A scourge like the smiting of Midian at the rock Oreb, And his rod is over the sea, And he hath lifted it in the way of Egypt.
[27] And it hath come to pass, in that day, Turned is his burden from off thy shoulder, And his yoke from off thy neck, And destroyed hath been the yoke, because of prosperity.
[28] He hath come in against Aiath, He hath passed over into Migron, At Michmash he looketh after his vessels.
[29] They have gone over the passage, Geba they have made a lodging place, Trembled hath Rama, Gibeah of Saul fled.
[30] Cry aloud with thy voice, daughter of Gallim, Give attention, Laish! answer her, Anathoth.
[31] Fled away hath Madmenah, The inhabitants of the high places have hardened themselves.
[32] Yet to-day in Nob to remain, Wave its hand doth the mount of the daughter of Zion, The hill of Jerusalem.
[33] Lo, the Lord, Jehovah of Hosts, Is lopping a branch with violence, And the high of stature are cut down, And the lofty are become low,
[34] And He hath gone round the thickets of the forest with iron, And Lebanon by a mighty one falleth!
