ISAIAH 23
1: The burden of Tyre. Howl, ye ships of Tarshish; for it is laid waste, so that there is no house, no entering in: from the land of Chittim it is revealed to them.
2: Be still, ye inhabitants of the isle; thou whom the merchants of Zidon, that pass over the sea, have replenished.
3: And by great waters the seed of Sihor, the harvest of the river, is her revenue; and she is a mart of nations.
4: Be thou ashamed, O Zidon: for the sea hath spoken, even the strength of the sea, saying, I travail not, nor bring forth children, neither do I nourish up young men, nor bring up virgins.
5: As at the report concerning Egypt, so shall they be sorely pained at the report of Tyre.
6: Pass ye over to Tarshish; howl, ye inhabitants of the isle.
7: Is this your joyous city, whose antiquity is of ancient days? her own feet shall carry her afar off to sojourn.
8: Who hath taken this counsel against Tyre, the crowning city, whose merchants are princes, whose traffickers are the honourable of the earth?
9: The LORD of hosts hath purposed it, to stain the pride of all glory, and to bring into contempt all the honourable of the earth.
10: Pass through thy land as a river, O daughter of Tarshish: there is no more strength.
11: He stretched out his hand over the sea, he shook the kingdoms: the LORD hath given a commandment against the merchant city, to destroy the strong holds thereof.
12: And he said, Thou shalt no more rejoice, O thou oppressed virgin, daughter of Zidon: arise, pass over to Chittim; there also shalt thou have no rest.
13: Behold the land of the Chaldeans; this people was not, till the Assyrian founded it for them that dwell in the wilderness: they set up the towers thereof, they raised up the palaces thereof; and he brought it to ruin.
14: Howl, ye ships of Tarshish: for your strength is laid waste.
15: And it shall come to pass in that day, that Tyre shall be forgotten seventy years, according to the days of one king: after the end of seventy years shall Tyre sing as an harlot.
16: Take an harp, go about the city, thou harlot that hast been forgotten; make sweet melody, sing many songs, that thou mayest be remembered.
17: And it shall come to pass after the end of seventy years, that the LORD will visit Tyre, and she shall turn to her hire, and shall commit fornication with all the kingdoms of the world upon the face of the earth.
18: And her merchandise and her hire shall be holiness to the LORD: it shall not be treasured nor laid up; for her merchandise shall be for them that dwell before the LORD, to eat sufficiently, and for durable clothing.


ISAIAH 24
1: Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof.
2: And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him.
3: The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD hath spoken this word.
4: The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish.
5: The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.
6: Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.
7: The new wine mourneth, the vine languisheth, all the merryhearted do sigh.
8: The mirth of tabrets ceaseth, the noise of them that rejoice endeth, the joy of the harp ceaseth.
9: They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink shall be bitter to them that drink it.
10: The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut up, that no man may come in.
11: There is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone.
12: In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction.
13: When thus it shall be in the midst of the land among the people, there shall be as the shaking of an olive tree, and as the gleaning grapes when the vintage is done.
14: They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of the LORD, they shall cry aloud from the sea.
15: Wherefore glorify ye the LORD in the fires, even the name of the LORD God of Israel in the isles of the sea.
16: From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, even glory to the righteous. But I said, My leanness, my leanness, woe unto me! the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously; yea, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously.
17: Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth.
18: And it shall come to pass, that he who fleeth from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake.
19: The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly.
20: The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.
21: And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth.
22: And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited.
23: Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.


PSALM 78
1: Give ear, O my people, to my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth.
2: I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old:
3: Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us.
4: We will not hide them from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done.
5: For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children:
6: That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children:
7: That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments:
8: And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation that set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not stedfast with God.
9: The children of Ephraim, being armed, and carrying bows, turned back in the day of battle.
10: They kept not the covenant of God, and refused to walk in his law;
11: And forgat his works, and his wonders that he had shewed them.
12: Marvellous things did he in the sight of their fathers, in the land of Egypt, in the field of Zoan.
13: He divided the sea, and caused them to pass through; and he made the waters to stand as an heap.
14: In the daytime also he led them with a cloud, and all the night with a light of fire.
15: He clave the rocks in the wilderness, and gave them drink as out of the great depths.
16: He brought streams also out of the rock, and caused waters to run down like rivers.
17: And they sinned yet more against him by provoking the most High in the wilderness.
18: And they tempted God in their heart by asking meat for their lust.
19: Yea, they spake against God; they said, Can God furnish a table in the wilderness?
20: Behold, he smote the rock, that the waters gushed out, and the streams overflowed; can he give bread also? can he provide flesh for his people?
21: Therefore the LORD heard this, and was wroth: so a fire was kindled against Jacob, and anger also came up against Israel;
22: Because they believed not in God, and trusted not in his salvation:
23: Though he had commanded the clouds from above, and opened the doors of heaven,
24: And had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them of the corn of heaven.
25: Man did eat angels' food: he sent them meat to the full.
26: He caused an east wind to blow in the heaven: and by his power he brought in the south wind.
27: He rained flesh also upon them as dust, and feathered fowls like as the sand of the sea:
28: And he let it fall in the midst of their camp, round about their habitations.
29: So they did eat, and were well filled: for he gave them their own desire;
30: They were not estranged from their lust. But while their meat was yet in their mouths,
31: The wrath of God came upon them, and slew the fattest of them, and smote down the chosen men of Israel.
32: For all this they sinned still, and believed not for his wondrous works.
33: Therefore their days did he consume in vanity, and their years in trouble.
34: When he slew them, then they sought him: and they returned and enquired early after God.
35: And they remembered that God was their rock, and the high God their redeemer.
36: Nevertheless they did flatter him with their mouth, and they lied unto him with their tongues.
37: For their heart was not right with him, neither were they stedfast in his covenant.
