Israel's Taunt

1 When the LORD will have R543 compassion on Jacob and again choose R544 Israel, and settle them in their own land, then strangers R545 will join them and attach themselves to the house of Jacob. 2 The peoples will take them along and bring them to their place, and the house R546 of Israel will possess them as an inheritance in the land of the LORD as R547 male servants and female servants; and they F171 will take their captors captive and will rule over their oppressors.

3 And it will be in the day when the LORD gives you rest R548 from your pain and turmoil and harsh service in which you have been enslaved, 4 that you will take R549 up this taunt F172 against the king of Babylon, and say, "How the R550 oppressor has ceased, And how fury F173 has ceased!

5 "The LORD has broken the staff of the wicked,

The scepter of rulers

6 Which R551 used to strike the peoples in fury with unceasing strokes,

Which subdued F174 the nations in anger with unrestrained persecution.

7 "The whole earth is at rest and is quiet;

They break R552 forth into shouts of joy.

8 "Even the cypress R553 trees rejoice over you, and the cedars of Lebanon, saying,

`Since you were laid low, no tree cutter comes up against us.'

9 "Sheol R554 from beneath is excited over you to meet you when you come;

It arouses for you the spirits F175 of the dead, all the leaders F176 of the earth;

It raises all the kings of the nations from their thrones.

10 "They R555 will all respond and say to you,

`Even you have been made weak as we,

You have become like us.

11 `Your pomp R556 and the music of your harps

Have been brought down to Sheol;

Maggots are spread out as your bed beneath you

And worms are your covering.'

12 "How you have fallen R557 from heaven,

O star R558 F177 of the morning, son of the dawn!

You have been cut down to the earth,

You who have weakened the nations!

13 "But you said in your heart,

`I will ascend R559 to heaven;

I will raise R560 my throne above the stars of God,

And I will sit on the mount of assembly

In the recesses of the north.

14 `I will ascend above the heights of the clouds;

I R561 will make myself like the Most High.'

15 "Nevertheless you will R562 be thrust down to Sheol,

To the recesses of the pit.

16 "Those who see you will gaze at you,

They will ponder F178 over you, saying,

`Is this the man who made the earth tremble,

Who shook kingdoms,

17 Who made the world like a wilderness R563

And overthrew its cities,

Who did R564 not allow F179 his prisoners to go home?'

18 "All the kings of the nations lie in glory,

Each in his own tomb. F180

19 "But you have been cast R565 out of your tomb

Like a F181 rejected branch,

Clothed F182 with the slain who are pierced with a sword,

Who go down to the stones of the pit R566

Like a trampled R567 corpse.

20 "You will not be united with them in burial,

Because you have ruined your country,

You have slain your people.

May the offspring R568 of evildoers not be mentioned forever.

21 "Prepare for his sons a place of slaughter

Because of the iniquity R569 of their fathers.

They must not arise and take possession of the earth

And fill the face of the world with cities."

22 "I will rise up against them," declares the LORD of hosts, "and will cut off from Babylon name R570 and survivors, offspring R571 and posterity," declares the LORD. 23 "I will also make it a possession for the hedgehog R572 and swamps of water, and I will sweep it with the broom of destruction," R573 declares the LORD of hosts.

Judgment on Assyria

24 The LORD of hosts has sworn saying, "Surely, just R574 as I have intended so it has happened, and just as I have planned so it will stand, 25 to break R575 Assyria in My land, and I will trample him on My mountains. Then his yoke R576 will be removed from them and his burden removed from their shoulder. 26 "This is the plan R577 devised F183 against the whole earth; and this is the hand R578 that is stretched out against all the nations. 27 "For the R579 LORD of hosts has planned, and who can frustrate it? And as for His stretched-out hand, who can turn it back?"

28 In the year R580 that King Ahaz died this oracle R581 F184 came:

Judgment on Philistia

29 "Do not rejoice, O Philistia, R582 all of you,

Because the rod that struck R583 you is broken;

For from the serpent's root a viper R584 will come out,

And its fruit will be a flying R585 serpent.

30 "Those F185 who are most helpless R586 will eat,

And the needy will lie down in security;

I will destroy F186 your root with famine, R587

And it will kill off your survivors.

31 "Wail, O gate; R588 cry, O city;

Melt F187 away, O Philistia, R589 all of you;

For smoke comes from the north, R590

And there R591 is no straggler in his ranks.

32 "How then will one answer the messengers R592 of the nation?

That the R593 LORD has founded Zion,

And the R594 afflicted of His people will seek refuge in it."
