Book of Isaiah
Chapter 30 - King James Version
1"Woe to the rebellious children," says
the Lord, "Who take counsel, but not of Me, and who devise
plans, but not of My spirit, that they may add sin to sin;
2 Who walk to go down to Egypt, and have

Pharaoh shall be your shame, and trust in the shadow of Egypt
be your humiliation.

princes were at Zoan, and
his ambassadors came to Hanes.
5 They were all ashamed
of a people
who could not benefit them, or be help or benefit,
but a shame and also a reproach."

12 Therefore thus says the Holy One of
Israel: "Because you despise
and trust in oppression and perversity,
13 Therefore this iniquity shall be to
you like a breach
ready to fall, a bulge in a high wall,
whose breaking comes suddenly,
in an instant.
14 And He shall break
it like the breaking of
the potter's vessel, which is broken
in pieces; He shall
not spare. So there shall not be found
among its fragments a shard
to take fire from the hearth, or
to take water from the cistern."
15 For thus says the Lord
of Israel: "In
returning and rest you shall be
saved; In quietness and
confidence shall be your strength."
16 And you said,
"No, for we will flee on horses"
- Therefore you shall flee! and, "We will ride on swift
horses" - Therefore those

18 Therefore the Lord will
wait, that He may be gracious to
you; And therefore He will
be exalted, that He may have mercy on you. For the Lord is
of justice; Blessed are
those who wait for Him.
For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem; You shall
weep no more, He will be very gracious to you at the sound
of your cry; When He hears it, He will answer you.
though the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the
affliction, yet your teachers will not be moved into a
corner anymore, But your eyes shall see your teachers.
shall hear a word behind you, saying, "This is the way,
walk in it," Whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever
turn to the left.
22 You will also defile the covering
of your graven images of silver, and the ornament of your
of gold. You will throw them away as an unclean thing;
will say to them, "Get away!"

the rain for your seed with which you sow the ground, and
the increase of the earth; It will be fat and plenteous.

of the sun will be
sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the
day that the
Lord binds up the bruise of His people and
heals the stroke of their wound.
27 Behold, the name of the
Lord comes from afar, burning with His anger, and His burden
is heavy; His lips are full of indignation, and His tongue
like a devouring fire;

stream, which reaches up to the neck, to sift the nations
