Serving God, Changing Lives

Isaiah 32:9-20

9Rise up, you women who are at ease, hear my voice;
you complacent daughters, listen to my speech.
10In little more than a year
you will shudder, you complacent ones;
for the vintage will fail,
the fruit harvest will not come.
11Tremble, you women who are at ease,
shudder, you complacent ones;
strip, and make yourselves bare,
and put sackcloth on your loins.
12Beat your breasts for the pleasant fields,
for the fruitful vine,
13for the soil of my people
growing up in thorns and briers;
yes, for all the joyous houses
in the jubilant city.
14For the palace will be forsaken,
the populous city deserted;
the hill and the watchtower
will become dens forever,
the joy of wild asses,
a pasture for flocks;
15until a spirit from on high is poured out on us,
and the wilderness becomes a fruitful field,
and the fruitful field is deemed a forest.
16Then justice will dwell in the wilderness,
and righteousness abide in the fruitful field.
17The effect of righteousness will be peace,
and the result of righteousness, quietness and trust forever.
18My people will abide in a peaceful habitation,
in secure dwellings, and in quiet resting places.
19The forest will disappear completely,
and the city will be utterly laid low.
20Happy will you be who sow beside every stream,
who let the ox and the donkey range freely.
