ContextThe Lord is Exalted
1Woe to you that spoil, and you were not spoiled; and deal treacherously, and they dealt not treacherously with you! when you shall cease to spoil, you shall be spoiled; and when you shall make an end to deal treacherously, they shall deal treacherously with you. 2O LORD, be gracious to us; we have waited for you: be you their arm every morning, our salvation also in the time of trouble. 3At the noise of the tumult the people fled; at the lifting up of yourself the nations were scattered. 4And your spoil shall be gathered like the gathering of the caterpillar: as the running to and fro of locusts shall he run on them. 5The LORD is exalted; for he dwells on high: he has filled Zion with judgment and righteousness. 6And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of your times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the LORD is his treasure. 7Behold, their valiant ones shall cry without: the ambassadors of peace shall weep bitterly. 8The highways lie waste, the wayfaring man ceases: he has broken the covenant, he has despised the cities, he regards no man. 9The earth mourns and languishes: Lebanon is ashamed and hewn down: Sharon is like a wilderness; and Bashan and Carmel shake off their fruits. 10Now will I rise, said the LORD; now will I be exalted; now will I lift up myself. 11You shall conceive chaff, you shall bring forth stubble: your breath, as fire, shall devour you. 12And the people shall be as the burnings of lime: as thorns cut up shall they be burned in the fire. 13Hear, you that are far off, what I have done; and, you that are near, acknowledge my might. 14The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness has surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings? 15He that walks righteously, and speaks uprightly; he that despises the gain of oppressions, that shakes his hands from holding of bribes, that stops his ears from hearing of blood, and shuts his eyes from seeing evil; 16He shall dwell on high: his place of defense shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure. 17Your eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off. 18Your heart shall meditate terror. Where is the scribe? where is the receiver? where is he that counted the towers? 19You shall not see a fierce people, a people of a deeper speech than you can perceive; of a stammering tongue, that you can not understand. 20Look on Zion, the city of our solemnities: your eyes shall see Jerusalem a quiet habitation, a tabernacle that shall not be taken down; not one of the stakes thereof shall ever be removed, neither shall any of the cords thereof be broken. 21But there the glorious LORD will be to us a place of broad rivers and streams; wherein shall go no galley with oars, neither shall gallant ship pass thereby. 22For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; he will save us. 23Your tacklings are loosed; they could not well strengthen their mast, they could not spread the sail: then is the prey of a great spoil divided; the lame take the prey. 24And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity.
