Isaiah 14 (WEBP)

[1] For Yahweh will have compassion on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel, and set them in their own land. The foreigner will join himself with them, and they will unite with the house of Jacob.
[2] The peoples will take them, and bring them to their place. The house of Israel will possess them in Yahweh’s land for servants and for handmaids. They will take as captives those whose captives they were; and they shall rule over their oppressors.
[3] It will happen in the day that Yahweh will give you rest from your sorrow, from your trouble, and from the hard service in which you were made to serve,
[4] that you will take up this parable against the king of Babylon, and say, “How the oppressor has ceased! The golden city has ceased!”
[5] Yahweh has broken the staff of the wicked, the scepter of the rulers,
[6] who struck the peoples in wrath with a continual stroke, who ruled the nations in anger, with a persecution that no one restrained.
[7] The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet. They break out in song.
[8] Yes, the cypress trees rejoice with you, with the cedars of Lebanon, saying, “Since you are humbled, no lumberjack has come up against us.”
[9] Sheol from beneath has moved for you to meet you at your coming. It stirs up the departed spirits for you, even all the rulers of the earth. It has raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.
[10] They all will answer and ask you, “Have you also become as weak as we are? Have you become like us?”
[11] Your pomp is brought down to Sheol, with the sound of your stringed instruments. Maggots are spread out under you, and worms cover you.
[12] How you have fallen from heaven, shining one, son of the dawn! How you are cut down to the ground, who laid the nations low!
[13] You said in your heart, “I will ascend into heaven! I will exalt my throne above the stars of God! I will sit on the mountain of assembly, in the far north!
[14] I will ascend above the heights of the clouds! I will make myself like the Most High!”
[15] Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, to the depths of the pit.
[16] Those who see you will stare at you. They will ponder you, saying, “Is this the man who made the earth to tremble, who shook kingdoms,
[17] who made the world like a wilderness, and overthrew its cities, who didn’t release his prisoners to their home?”
[18] All the kings of the nations sleep in glory, everyone in his own house.
[19] But you are cast away from your tomb like an abominable branch, clothed with the slain who are thrust through with the sword, who go down to the stones of the pit; like a dead body trodden under foot.
[20] You will not join them in burial, because you have destroyed your land. You have killed your people. The offspring of evildoers will not be named forever.
[21] Prepare for slaughter of his children because of the iniquity of their fathers, that they not rise up and possess the earth, and fill the surface of the world with cities.
[22] “I will rise up against them,” says Yahweh of Armies, “and cut off from Babylon name and remnant, and son and son’s son,” says Yahweh.
[23] “I will also make it a possession for the porcupine, and pools of water. I will sweep it with the broom of destruction,” says Yahweh of Armies.
[24] Yahweh of Armies has sworn, saying, “Surely, as I have thought, so shall it happen; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand:
[25] that I will break the Assyrian in my land, and tread him under foot on my mountains. Then his yoke will leave them, and his burden leave their shoulders.
[26] This is the plan that is determined for the whole earth. This is the hand that is stretched out over all the nations.
[27] For Yahweh of Armies has planned, and who can stop it? His hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back?”
[28] This burden was in the year that King Ahaz died.
[29] Don’t rejoice, O Philistia, all of you, because the rod that struck you is broken; for out of the serpent’s root an adder will emerge, and his fruit will be a fiery flying serpent.
[30] The firstborn of the poor will eat, and the needy will lie down in safety; and I will kill your root with famine, and your remnant will be killed.
[31] Howl, gate! Cry, city! You are melted away, Philistia, all of you; for smoke comes out of the north, and there is no straggler in his ranks.
[32] What will they answer the messengers of the nation? That Yahweh has founded Zion, and in her the afflicted of his people will take refuge.

Young’s Literal Translation

Isaiah 14 (YLT)

[1] Because Jehovah loveth Jacob, And hath fixed again on Israel, And given them rest on their own land, And joined hath been the sojourner to them, And they have been admitted to the house of Jacob.
[2] And peoples have taken them, And have brought them in unto their place, And the house of Israel have inherited them, On the land of Jehovah, For men-servants and for maid-servants, And they have been captors of their captors, And have ruled over their exactors.
[3] And it hath come to pass, In the day of Jehovah’s giving rest to thee, From thy grief, and from thy trouble, And from the sharp bondage, That hath been served upon thee,
[4] That thou hast taken up this simile Concerning the king of Babylon, and said, How hath the exactor ceased,
[5] Ceased hath the golden one. Broken hath Jehovah the staff of the wicked, The sceptre of rulers.
[6] He who is smiting peoples in wrath, A smiting without intermission, He who is ruling in anger nations, Pursuing without restraint!
[7] At rest-quiet hath been all the earth, They have broken forth into singing.
[8] Even firs have rejoiced over thee, Cedars of Lebanon-saying: Since thou hast lain down, The hewer cometh not up against us.
[9] Sheol beneath hath been troubled at thee, To meet thy coming in, It is waking up for thee Rephaim, All chiefs ones of earth, It hath raised up from their thrones All kings of nations.
[10] All of them answer and say unto thee, Even thou hast become weak like us! Unto us thou hast become like!
[11] Brought down to Sheol hath been thine excellency, The noise of thy psaltery, Under thee spread out hath been the worm, Yea, covering thee is the worm.
[12] How hast thou fallen from the heavens, O shining one, son of the dawn! Thou hast been cut down to earth, O weakener of nations.
[13] And thou saidst in thy heart: the heavens I go up, Above stars of God I raise my throne, And I sit in the mount of meeting in the sides of the north.
[14] I go up above the heights of a thick cloud, I am like to the Most High.
[15] Only-unto Sheol thou art brought down, Unto the sides of the pit.
[16] Thy beholders look to thee, to thee they attend, Is this the man causing the earth to tremble, Shaking kingdoms?
[17] He hath made the world as a wilderness, And his cities he hath broken down, Of his bound ones he opened not the house.
[18] All kings of nations-all of them, Have lain down in honour, each in his house,
[19] And-thou hast been cast out of thy grave, As an abominable branch, raiment of the slain, Thrust through ones of the sword, Going down unto the sons of the pit, As a carcase trodden down.
[20] Thou art not united with them in burial, For thy land thou hast destroyed, Thy people thou hast slain, Not named to the age is the seed of evil doers.
[21] Prepare ye for his sons slaughter; Because of the iniquity of their fathers, They rise not, nor have possessed the land, Nor filled the face of the world with cities.
[22] And I have risen up against them, (The affirmation of Jehovah of Hosts,) And have cut off, in reference to Babylon, Name and remnant, and continuator and successor, The affirmation of Jehovah.
[23] And have made it for a possession of a bittern, And ponds of waters, And daubed it with the mire of destruction, The affirmation of Jehovah of Hosts!
[24] Sworn hath Jehovah of Hosts, saying, ‘As I thought-so hath it not been? And as I counselled-it standeth;
[25] To break Asshur in My land, And on My mountains I tread him down, And turned from off them hath his yoke, Yea, his burden from off their shoulder turneth aside.
[26] This is the counsel that is counselled for all the earth, And this is the hand that is stretched out for all the nations.
[27] For Jehovah of Hosts hath purposed, And who doth make void? And His hand that is stretched out, Who doth turn it back?’
[28] In the year of the death of king Ahaz was this burden:
[29] Rejoice not thou, Philistia, all of thee, That broken hath been the rod of thy smiter, For from the root of a serpent cometh out a viper, And its fruit is a flying saraph.
[30] And delighted have the first-born of the poor, And the needy in confidence lie down, And I have put to death with famine thy root, And thy remnant it slayeth.
[31] Howl, O gate; cry, O city, Melted art thou, Philistia, all of thee, For from the north smoke hath come, And there is none alone in his set places.
[32] And what doth one answer the messengers of a nation? ‘ That Jehovah hath founded Zion, And in it do the poor of His people trust!’
