Isaiah Ecclesiastes

Isaiah chapter 28 and the book of Ecclesiastes.

FE 1Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim, and woe to the shameful diadem of the strength of his glory, which dominates at the entrance of the fertile valley of those who are overcome with wine. 2The strength and the might of the Master is like a storm of hail and like a destroying whirlwind, and as a flood of mighty waters overflowing; I will give rest to this land by your hands; 3the crown of the proud and of the drunkards of Ephraim will be trampled under foot; 4and the shameful garland of the strength of his glory, which dominates at the entrance of the fertile valley, will be as the firstfruits before the summer, which he who sees it picks up at once and devours. Isaiah 28:1-45In that day the Master of hosts will be for a crown of glory and for a diadem of beauty to the remnant of his people, 6and for a spirit of justice to him who sits in judgment, and for strength to those who turn away the battle from the gate. Isaiah 28:5-67But these have also erred with wine, and with strong drink are gone astray; the priests and the prophets have erred with strong drink, they are overcome with wine, they stagger with strong drink, they err in judgment with drunkenness, they eat immoderately. 8For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, so that there is no place clean. Isaiah 28:7-89To whom will he teach knowledge and whom will he make understand the report? Those who are weaned from the milk and drawn from the breasts. 10Therefore commandment to commandment, commandment to commandment, line to line, line to line, there a little there a little. Isaiah 28:9-1011For with a difficult speech and with an alien tongue he will speak to this people. 12For I have said to them, This is the place of my rest where I may cause the weary to rest and this is the place of tranquility, but they would not listen. Q 1 Corinthians 14:21 13The word of the Master was to them commandment to commandment, commandment to commandment, line to line, line to line, there a little there a little, that they might walk and stumble backward and be broken and snared and taken. Isaiah 28:11-1314Therefore hear the word of the Master scornful men who rule this people that is in Jerusalem. 15Because you have said, We have made a contract with death and with Saul we have made an agreement, when the overflowing scourge will pass through it will not come to us, for we have placed our hope in lies and under falsehood we have hidden ourselves. Isaiah 28:14-1516Therefore, thus says the Master God: I lay in Zion a foundation, a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation; he who believes will not be afraid. Q Romans 10:11 Q 1 Peter 2:6 17I will make justice to the measuring line and righteousness to the plummet and the hail will sweep away the refuge of lies and the waters will overflow the hiding place. FE 18Your contract with death will be disannulled and your agreement with Saul will not stand when the overflowing scourge will pass, then you will be trampled down by it. 19From the time that it passes it will take you, for morning by morning it will pass by day and by night, Isaiah 28:16-19and it will only be a terror to understand the report. 20For the cloth is too short and the warp grows weak and is insufficient for a garment. 21For the Master will rise up as in a mountain pass. He will be angry as in the valley of Gibeon that he may do his works, his foreign works, and bring to pass his acts, his foreign acts. 22Now do not mock lest your chastisement be severe, for I have heard from the Master, master of hosts, that he will bring destruction and judgment on the whole land. Isaiah 28:19-2223Give ear and hear my voice, listen and hear my speech. 24Does the plowman plow all day to sow? Does he open and hoe his ground? 25Does he, after he has leveled its surface, not scatter the dill and sow cummin, and put in wheat and barley, and rye in its borders? 26For his god does instruct him to discretion and does teach him. Isaiah 28:23-2627For dill is not threshed under the feet of oxen nor is a threshing instrument turned about on cummin, but dill is beaten out with a staff and cummin with a rod. 28Grain is threshed for our sakes because man would not otherwise be threshing it, nor break it with many wheels of his threshing instruments, nor crush it under the feet of his oxen. 29This also comes forth from the Master of hosts who is wonderful in counsel and excellent in instruction. Isaiah 28:27-29 (Isaiah 28 BRB)
