Column XVII Isaiah 21 vs.15 to 22 vs.24

1. (Continue 21 vs.15) the heavy burden of war. (16) Because thus said YHWH to me in yet [m..three] [*O] years [one year] as the years of
2. a hired man all the glory of Kedar will be ended. (17) And the remnant of the number of archers of the mighty men of {&the sons&} of Kedar shall be diminished.
3. because YHWH the God of Israel has spoken. (PP)

4. (Chapter 22 vs.1) The Oracle of the Valley of The Vision of [+the kings of Aephoa+] [m..What is with you now?] because all of you have gone up to the roofs (2) a city full of noise, a city
5. of tumult, a city of glee, your slain are not slain of the sword nor your dead of war. (3) All
6. your rulers have wandered off together, they are constrained by the archers, all those found within you are constrained together, far away
7. they have fled. (4) Therefore I said look away from me for I am bitter in my weeping do not hasten to comfort me concerning
8. the destruction of the daughter my people. (5) [{Because it is a day}] of trouble, treading down and confusion to the Lord YHWH
9. of Hosts in the valley of vision of His holy place upon the mountain [m..breaking down walls and sanctifying [crying out to] the mountains.] (6) and Elam lifted {&yod&} up the quiver
10. with chariots of mankind and horsemen and Qir uncovered the shield. (7) And it shall be that your choicest valleys shall be full of
11. chariots and the horsemen shall surely place themselves at the gate. (8) And you shall roll aside the curtain of Judah and you shall look
12. in that day to the armory of the house of the forest. (9) You have seen the breaches of the city of David
13. that they are great and you have gathered together the waters of the lower blessing or pool (10) And the houses of Jerusalem
14. you have counted and you have broken the houses down to fortify the wall. (11) and you made a channel between the two walls
15. for the waters of the old blessing or pool and neither did you look to its maker nor the one who fashioned it long ago
16. did you see. (PP)

17. (12) And in that day will the Lord YHWH of Hosts call for crying and for mourning and for baldness
18. and for the girding of sack cloth. (13) and behold joy and gladness and killing of cattle and slaughter of sheep and eating of
19 flesh and drinking wine, Eat and drink for tomorrow we die. (14) And he disclosed in my ears evenYHWH
20. of Hosts, in no way will this iniquity be atoned for you until you die says the Lord
21. YHWH of Hosts. (PP)

22. (15) Thus said the Lord YHWH of Hosts, go, arrive to this steward, even Shebna
23. who is over the household. and say (16) What is yours here and who is yours here that you have hewn out here a tomb for yourself
24. hewing out on high his tomb, engraving in the rock cliff a habitation for himself. (17) Behold YHWH will hurl you away
25. with a mighty exile and will surely cover you up. (18) With a great rolling {&yod&} he will roll you like a ball to
26. a land of wide spaces, there shall you die and there shall the chariots of your glory be the shame of the house
27. of your lord. (19) And I will drive you from your fortress and from your office shall He throw you down. (PP)

28. And it will be in that day that I will call to my servant to Eliakim, son of Hilkiah (21) And I will cause him to be dressed {&tau&}
29. in your tunic and will strengthen him with your girdle and I will give your government into his hand and he shall be
30. as a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem and to the house of Judah. (22) And I will give him the key of the house of David
31. upon his shoulder and he will open and no one shall shut and shut and no one will open. (23) And I will drive him as a nail in an
32. established place and he shall be for a throne of glory for his father’s house. (24) And they shall hang upon him all the glory of

Isaiah 21:15 22:24 King James Version

21:15 For they fled from the swords, from the drawn sword, and from the bent bow, and from the grievousness of war.

16 For thus hath the Lord said unto me, Within a year, according to the years of an hireling, and all the glory of Kedar shall fail:

17 And the residue of the number of archers, the mighty men of the children of Kedar, shall be diminished: for the Lord God of Israel hath spoken it.

22:1 The burden of the valley of vision. What aileth thee now, that thou art wholly gone up to the housetops?

2 Thou that art full of stirs, a tumultuous city, joyous city: thy slain men are not slain with the sword, nor dead in battle.

3 All thy rulers are fled together, they are bound by the archers: all that are found in thee are bound together, which have fled from far.

4 Therefore said I, Look away from me; I will weep bitterly, labour not to comfort me, because of the spoiling of the daughter of my people.

5 For it is a day of trouble, and of treading down, and of perplexity by the Lord God of hosts in the valley of vision, breaking down the walls, and of crying to the mountains.

6 And Elam bare the quiver with chariots of men and horsemen, and Kir uncovered the shield.

7 And it shall come to pass, that thy choicest valleys shall be full of chariots, and the horsemen shall set themselves in array at the gate.

8 And he discovered the covering of Judah, and thou didst look in that day to the armour of the house of the forest.

9 Ye have seen also the breaches of the city of David, that they are many: and ye gathered together the waters of the lower pool.

10 And ye have numbered the houses of Jerusalem, and the houses have ye broken down to fortify the wall.

11 Ye made also a ditch between the two walls for the water of the old pool: but ye have not looked unto the maker thereof, neither had respect unto him that fashioned it long ago.

12 And in that day did the Lord God of hosts call to weeping, and to mourning, and to baldness, and to girding with sackcloth:

13 And behold joy and gladness, slaying oxen, and killing sheep, eating flesh, and drinking wine: let us eat and drink; for to morrow we shall die.

14 And it was revealed in mine ears by the Lord of hosts, Surely this iniquity shall not be purged from you till ye die, saith the Lord God of hosts.

15 Thus saith the Lord God of hosts, Go, get thee unto this treasurer, even unto Shebna, which is over the house, and say,

16 What hast thou here? and whom hast thou here, that thou hast hewed thee out a sepulchre here, as he that heweth him out a sepulchre on high, and that graveth an habitation for himself in a rock?

17 Behold, the Lord will carry thee away with a mighty captivity, and will surely cover thee.

18 He will surely violently turn and toss thee like a ball into a large country: there shalt thou die, and there the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lord’s house.

19 And I will drive thee from thy station, and from thy state shall he pull thee down.

20 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will call my servant Eliakim the son of Hilkiah:

21 And I will clothe him with thy robe, and strengthen him with thy girdle, and I will commit thy government into his hand: and he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Judah.

22 And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.

23 And I will fasten him as a nail in a sure place; and he shall be for a glorious throne to his father’s house.

24 And they shall hang upon him all the glory of his father’s house, the offspring and the issue, all vessels of small quantity, from the vessels of cups, even to all the vessels of flagons.
