Column XXII Isaiah 28 vs.2 to 28 vs.24

1. (Continue Chapter 28:2) [and] it shall be laid to rest nearby (3) They shall be trampled under feet even the crown of pride of the drunkards of
2. Ephraim. (4) And their glorious beauty shall be a fading blossom which is at the tops of the valleys
3. of fatness as her first fruits before summer which when he looks and seeing it
4. being yet in his hand it is swallowed up. (PP)

5. (5) In that Day YHWH of Hosts shall be for a crown of beauty and for a diadem
6. of splendor to the remnant of his people (6) and for the spirit of judgement for those sitting upon the judgement seat and for power
7. for those returning the warfare {to the) gate. (7) And they also went astray by wine and wandered about by strong drink, the priest
8. and the prophet have gone astray by strong drink, they are swallowed by the wine they have wandered about from strong drink they go astray as seers
9. and they totter in decisions (8) Because all tables are filled with vomit and excrement without space. (PP)

10. (9) Whom shall He teach knowledge and whom shall he cause to understand what is heard, those who are weaned from milk, those grown too old
11. from the breasts (10) For it is command to command, command to command, line to line, line to line, a bit here and a bit there.
12. (11) Because with stammering lips and with another tongue will he speak to this people. (12) This is that which he says
13. to them This is the rest that you must lay before the weary and this is the repose but you were not
14. willing {to} listen. (13) and the word of YHWH was to them command to command, command to command, line to line, line
15. to line, a bit here and a bit there so that they might go and stumble backward to be broken and to be trapped
16. and be captured. (PP)

17. (14) Therefore hear the word of YHWH scornful men who are rulers of this people who are in Jerusalem.
18. (15) Because you say we have cut a covenant with death and with Sheol we have made a vision, the scourge
19. is overflowing because it will pass over [Q lacks – ayin] it will not come to us because we have put a lie for our shelter and in deception have we hid ourselves.
20. (16) Therefore thus says {+&adonay&} YHWH Behold I make a stone foundation in Zion, a tried corner stone
21. precious, and exceedingly strong foundation, and the one believing shall not be careless. (17) And I will put justice to the line
22. and righteousness to the plumb line and hail shall sweep away the covering of lies and water shall engulf the hiding place.
23. (18) And your covenant with death shall be covered over also your vision [+with+] Sheol shall not stand
24. The overflowing scourge that is passing over and you shall be to it for treading down. (19) From the time of its passing over it shall take
25. you because every morning it shall pass over in the morning and in the night [and it shall be] a terror just
26. to understand the sound. (20) Because the bed is shorter than one might stretch himself and the covering [m..+narrow] as a cover
27. than he can cover himself with. (21) Because as in Mount Peraziym YHWH will rise up in the valley of Gibeon
28. He will rage to do His work, his strange work, and to toil in his labor his alien labor.
29. (22) And now do not make light lest your bindings be strengthened because an end has been determined,
30. I have heard from the [m..+Lord] YHWH of Hosts concerning the whole earth. (PP)

31. (23){&H&} Listen and hear my voice, draw near and hear what I am saying. (24) All day

Isaiah 28: 2- 24  King James Version

28:Behold, the Lord hath a mighty and strong one, which as a tempest of hail and a destroying storm, as a flood of mighty waters overflowing, shall cast down to the earth with the hand.

The crown of pride, the drunkards of Ephraim, shall be trodden under feet:

And the glorious beauty, which is on the head of the fat valley, shall be a fading flower, and as the hasty fruit before the summer; which when he that looketh upon it seeth, while it is yet in his hand he eateth it up.

In that day shall the Lord of hosts be for a crown of glory, and for a diadem of beauty, unto the residue of his people,

And for a spirit of judgment to him that sitteth in judgment, and for strength to them that turn the battle to the gate.

But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment.

For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, so that there is no place clean.

Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.

10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

11 For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people.

12 To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.

13 But the word of the Lord was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

14 Wherefore hear the word of the Lord, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem.

15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:

16 Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.

17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.

18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.

19 From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report.

20 For the bed is shorter than that a man can stretch himself on it: and the covering narrower than that he can wrap himself in it.

21 For the Lord shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act.

22 Now therefore be ye not mockers, lest your bands be made strong: for I have heard from the Lord God of hosts a consumption, even determined upon the whole earth.

23 Give ye ear, and hear my voice; hearken, and hear my speech.

24 Doth the plowman plow all day to sow? doth he open and break the clods of his ground?
