Column III Isaiah 2 vs.21 to 3 vs.24

1. (2:21 cont.) when he arises to terrify the earth. (22) Stop depending on humanity whose life
2. is in his nostrils because of what account is he? (PP)

3. (chapter 3 vs.1) Because behold the Lord YHWH is taking away from Jerusalem and from Judah
4. the stay and the staff, the complete stay of bread and the complete stay of water (2) the mighty man and the man
5. of war, the judge, the prophet, the sophist, and the elder, (3) the captain of 50, the exhorter,
6. the wise craftsman, and enchanting speaker. (4) And I will give youths for their leaders [+..+]
7. and capricious children shall rule over them. (5) And the people shall be oppressed by each other and each man by his neighbor.
8. And the youth shall act arrogantly against the elder, and the lowly against the honorable, (6) Then a man will grasp his brother
9. of the house of his father, and say you have clothes, you shall be our ruler and this overthrow
10. shall be under your hand. (7) [+And+] he will raise up in that day and say I will not be governor
11. for in my house there is no bread and there are no clothes, do not make me a ruler of the people. (8) because overthrown
12. is Jerusalem and Judah is fallen. Because their tongue and their habits are against YHWH to embitter
13. the eyes of his glory. (9) The appearance of their faces witness against them and they tell their sins like Sodom.
14. They do not conceal it. Woe to their souls because they have repaid evil to themselves. (10) Say to the righteous
15. that it will be well because they will eat of the fruit of their habits. (11) Woe to the evil wicked because
16. he returns to himself the recompense of his own hands. (12) Foolish children are the oppressors of my people and women rule over them , O my people
17. your leaders lead you astray and [{they swallow up}] the ways of your paths. (PP)

18. (13) YHWH stands up to contend , He stands to judge the people. (14) YHWH goes into judgement with
19. the elders of his people and his princes for you have consumed the vineyard and the loot of the poor is in {&your&} houses.
20. (15) What is it to you that you beat my people and you crush the faces of the poor says the {&Lord&} YHWH
21. of Hosts. (PP)

22. (16) And YHWH said: Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, walking with outstretched
23. necks and wanton eyes, walking delicately as they walk and with their feet they
24. rattle bangles. (17) And the [..Lord..] {&YHWH&}will strike with a scab the scalp of the daughters of Zion and the Lord their secret parts
25. will lay bare. (18) In that day [..YHWH..] {&adonay&} will turn aside the beauty of their bangles and tiaras {&mem&}
26. and the woven hair pieces and the turbans (19) [and] the pendants and the bracelets and the veils.
27. (20) [and] the bonnets and the anklets and [..the..] sashes and the perfumes and the charms.
28. [+and+] the rings and the nose jewels, (22) [+and+] the stately robes and the coats [m…mitpachoth…] and the purses
29. (23) and the mirrors and the linen shifts and the diadems and the mantillas. (24) and it shall be.

Isaiah 2:21 – 3:24 King James Version

2:21 To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the Lord, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.

22 Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of ?

3:1 For, behold, the Lord, the Lord of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water.

2 The mighty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient,

3 The captain of fifty, and the honourable man, and the counsellor, and the cunning artificer, and the eloquent orator.

4 And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them.

5 And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable.

6 When a man shall take hold of his brother of the house of his father, saying, Thou hast clothing, be thou our ruler, and let this ruin be under thy hand:

7 In that day shall he swear, saying, I will not be an healer; for in my house is neither bread nor clothing: make me not a ruler of the people.

8 For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen: because their tongue and their doings are against the Lord, to provoke the eyes of his glory.

9 The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves.

10 Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.

11 Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him.

12 As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.

13 The Lord standeth up to plead, and standeth to judge the people.

14 The Lord will enter into judgment with the ancients of his people, and the princes thereof: for ye have eaten up the vineyard; the spoil of the poor is in your houses.

15 What mean ye that ye beat my people to pieces, and grind the faces of the poor? saith the Lord God of hosts.

16 Moreover the Lord saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet:

17 Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the Lord will discover their secret parts.

18 In that day the Lord will take away the bravery of their tinkling ornaments about their feet, and their cauls, and their round tires like the moon,

19 The chains, and the bracelets, and the mufflers,

20 The bonnets, and the ornaments of the legs, and the headbands, and the tablets, and the earrings,

21 The rings, and nose jewels,

22 The changeable suits of apparel, and the mantles, and the wimples, and the crisping pins,

23 The glasses, and the fine linen, and the hoods, and the vails.

24 And it shall come to pass, that instead of sweet smell there shall be stink; and instead of a girdle a rent; and instead of well set hair baldness; and instead of a stomacher a girding of sackcloth; and burning instead of beauty.
