Isaiah 1 The corruptions prevailing among the Jews.
The sins of Israel and Judah
1:1 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 Kgs. 15:1, 13; 18:1 Isa. 2:1; 40:9
1:2 Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the LORD hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me. Deut. 32:1 Jer. 3:22 Isa. 65:2 Mic. 1:2
1:3 The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master's crib [but] Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider. Jer. 8:7
1:4 Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward. Song 2:7, 9, 17; 4:6 Isa. 5:24
1:5 Why should ye be stricken any more? ye will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. Ps. 38:3
1:6 From the sole of the foot even unto the head [there is] no soundness in it; [but] wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment.
1:7 Your country [is] desolate, your cities [are] burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and [it is] desolate, as overthrown by strangers. Lev. 26:33 Jer. 44:6
1:8 And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city.
1:9 Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, [and] we should have been like unto Gomorrah. Isa. 10:20-22; 11:11, 16 Rom. 9:29
1:10 Hear the word of the LORD, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah. Ezek. 16:46
1:11 To what purpose [is] the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats. Jer. 6:20 Mal. 1:10
1:12 When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts? 1 Chron.23:31 Jer. 7:9,10
1:13 Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; [it is] iniquity, even the solemn meeting.
1:14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear [them].
1:15 And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood. Isa. 59:2 Mic. 3:4
1:16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; Ps. 26:6 Isa. 52:11 Jer. 25:5
1:17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow. Jer. 22:3
1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. Ps. 51:7 Isa. 43:26; 44:22 Rev. 7:14
1:19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: Deut. 30:15,16
1:20 But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken [it].
1:21 How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.
1:22 Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water:
1:23 Thy princes [are] rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them. Ex. 23:8 Jer. 5:28 Ezek. 22:7 Mic. 7:3
1:24 Therefore saith the Lord, the LORD of hosts, the mighty One of Israel, Ah, I will ease me of mine adversaries, and avenge me of mine enemies:
1:25 And I will turn my hand upon thee, and purely purge away thy dross, and take away all thy tin: Ezek. 22:19-22 Mal. 3:3
1:26 And I will restore thy judges as at the first, and thy counsellors as at the beginning: afterward thou shalt be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city. Isa. 33:5 Zech. 8:3
1:27 Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness.
1:28 And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners [shall be] together, and they that forsake the LORD shall be consumed. Ps. 9:5 2 Thess. 1:8, 9
1:29 For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which ye have desired, and ye shall be confounded for the gardens that ye have chosen.
1:30 For ye shall be as an oak whose leaf fadeth, and as a garden that hath no water.
1:31 And the strong shall be as tow, and the maker of it as a spark, and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench [them]. Isa. 33:11-14 Mt. 3:12
