1 H4428 Behold, a king H4427 shall reign [H8799] H6664 in righteousness H8269 , and princes H8323 shall rule [H8799] H4941 in judgment.
2 H376 And a man H4224 shall be as an hiding place H7307 from the wind H5643 , and a covert H2230 from the tempest H6388 ; as rivers H4325 of water H6724 in a dry place H6738 , as the shadow H3515 of a great H5553 rock H5889 in a weary H776 land.
3 H5869 And the eyes H7200 of them that see [H8802] H8159 shall not be dim [H8799] H241 , and the ears H8085 of them that hear [H8802] H7181 shall hearken [H8799] .
4 H3824 The heart H4116 also of the rash [H8737] H995 shall understand [H8799] H1847 knowledge H3956 , and the tongue H5926 of the stammerers H4116 shall be ready [H8762] H1696 to speak [H8763] H6703 plainly.
5 H5036 The vile person H7121 shall be no more called [H8735] H5081 liberal H3596 , nor the churl H559 said [H8735] H7771 to be bountiful.
6 H5036 For the vile person H1696 will speak [H8762] H5039 villany H3820 , and his heart H6213 will work [H8799] H205 iniquity H6213 , to practise [H8800] H2612 hypocrisy H1696 , and to utter [H8763] H8442 error H3068 against the LORD H7324 , to make empty [H8687] H5315 the soul H7457 of the hungry H4945 , and he will cause the drink H6771 of the thirsty H2637 to fail [H8686] .
7 H3627 The instruments H3596 also of the churl H7451 are evil H3289 : he deviseth [H8804] H2154 wicked devices H2254 to destroy [H8763] H6041 the poor [H8675] H6035 H8267 with lying H561 words H34 , even when the needy H1696 speaketh [H8763] H4941 right.
8 H5081 But the liberal H3289 deviseth [H8804] H5081 liberal things H5081 ; and by liberal things H6965 shall he stand [H8799] .
9 H6965 Rise up [H8798] H802 , ye women H7600 that are at ease H8085 ; hear [H8798] H6963 my voice H982 , ye careless [H8802] H1323 daughters H238 ; give ear [H8685] H565 unto my speech.
10 H3117 Many days H8141 and years H7264 shall ye be troubled [H8799] H982 , ye careless women [H8802] H1210 : for the vintage H3615 shall fail [H8804] H625 , the gathering H935 shall not come [H8799] .
11 H2729 Tremble [H8798] H7600 , ye women that are at ease H7264 ; be troubled [H8798] H982 , ye careless ones [H8802] H6584 : strip [H8800] H6209 you, and make you bare [H8798] H2290 , and gird H2504 sackcloth upon your loins.
12 H5594 They shall lament [H8802] H7699 for the teats H2531 , for the pleasant H7704 fields H6509 , for the fruitful [H8802] H1612 vine.
13 H127 Upon the land H5971 of my people H5927 shall come up [H8799] H6975 thorns H8068 and briers H1004 ; yea, upon all the houses H4885 of joy H5947 in the joyous H7151 city:
14 H759 Because the palaces H5203 shall be forsaken [H8795] H1995 ; the multitude H5892 of the city H5800 shall be left [H8795] H6076 ; the forts H975 and towers H4631 shall be for dens H5704 for H5769 ever H4885 , a joy H6501 of wild asses H4829 , a pasture H5739 of flocks;
15 H7307 Until the spirit H6168 be poured [H8735] H4791 upon us from on high H4057 , and the wilderness H3759 be a fruitful field H3759 , and the fruitful field H2803 be counted [H8735] H3293 for a forest.
16 H4941 Then judgment H7931 shall dwell [H8804] H4057 in the wilderness H6666 , and righteousness H3427 remain [H8799] H3759 in the fruitful field.
17 H4639 And the work H6666 of righteousness H7965 shall be peace H5656 ; and the effect H6666 of righteousness H8252 quietness [H8687] H983 and assurance H5704 for H5769 ever.
18 H5971 And my people H3427 shall dwell [H8804] H7965 in a peaceable H5116 habitation H4009 , and in sure H4908 dwellings H7600 , and in quiet H4496 resting places;
19 H1258 When it shall hail [H8804] H3381 , coming down [H8800] H3293 on the forest H5892 ; and the city H8213 shall be low [H8799] H8218 in a low place.
