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 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. (Isai. 1:2)

3 The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master's crib: but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider. (Isai. 1:3)

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. (Isai. 1:4)

5 Why should ye be stricken any more? ye will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. (Isai. 1:5)

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. (Isai. 1:6)

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. (Isai. 1:7)

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. (Isai. 1:8)

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. (Isai. 1:9)

10 Hear the word of the LORD, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah. (Isai. 1:10)

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. (Isai. 1:11)

12 When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts? (Isai. 1:12)

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. (Isai. 1:13)

14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them. (Isai. 1:14)

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. (Isai. 1:15)

16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; (Isai. 1:16)

17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow. (Isai. 1:17)

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. (Isai. 1:18)

19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: (Isai. 1:19)

20 But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it. (Isai. 1:20)

21 How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers. (Isai. 1:21)

22 Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water: (Isai. 1:22)

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. (Isai. 1:23)

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: (Isai. 1:24)

25 And I will turn my hand upon thee, and purely purge away thy dross, and take away all thy tin: (Isai. 1:25)

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. (Isai. 1:26)

27 Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness. (Isai. 1:27)

28 And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the LORD shall be consumed. (Isai. 1:28)

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. (Isai. 1:29)

30 For ye shall be as an oak whose leaf fadeth, and as a garden that hath no water. (Isai. 1:30)

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. (Isai. 1:31)
