The oracle concerning the valley of vision. What is the matter with you now, that you have all gone up to the housetops? (Isaiah 22:1)

You who were full of noise, You boisterous town, you exultant city; Your slain were not slain with the sword, Nor did they die in battle. (Isaiah 22:2)

All your rulers have fled together, And have been captured without the bow; All of you who were found were taken captive together, Though they had fled far away. (Isaiah 22:3)

Therefore I say, "Turn your eyes away from me, Let me weep bitterly, Do not try to comfort me concerning the destruction of the daughter of my people." (Isaiah 22:4)

For the Lord GOD of hosts has a day of panic, subjugation and confusion In the valley of vision, A breaking down of walls And a crying to the mountain. (Isaiah 22:5)

Elam took up the quiver With the chariots, infantry and horsemen; And Kir uncovered the shield. (Isaiah 22:6)

Then your choicest valleys were full of chariots, And the horsemen took up fixed positions at the gate. (Isaiah 22:7)
