Isaiah Obadiah

Isaiah chapter 33 and the book of Obadiah.

FE 1Woe to you who plunder, but you will not plunder, and let no one deal treacherously among you; for when you seek to plunder, they will plunder you; and when you seek to deal treacherously, they will deal treacherously with you. Isaiah 33:12Master, be favorful to us; for in you is our trust; be our helper every morning, also our salvation in the time of distress. 3At the noise of your tumult the people fled; at the lifting up of yourself the peoples were scattered. 4From now on, your spoil will be gathered like the gathering of the caterpillar; as a swarm of locusts when it is gathered together. Isaiah 33:2-45The Master is exalted, for he lives on high; he has filled Zion with justice and righteousness. 6Faith will be the stability of your times, and your salvation in a place of refuge; wisdom and knowledge and the fear of the Master is his treasure. Isaiah 33:5-67If he should be seen by them they will howl violently; the ambassadors of peace will weep bitterly. 8The highways lie waste, the wayfaring man ceases, and the contract is broken; the cities are despised, and there is no regard for man. 9The land mourns and languishes; Lebanon is ashamed and confounded; Sharon has become like a plain; and Bashan and Carmel are desolate. Isaiah 33:7-910Now I will arise, says the Master. Now I will be exalted; now I will lift myself up. 11You will conceive thorns, you will bring forth stubble; your breath, as fire, will devour you. 12The peoples will be as the burning of lime; as thorns that are gathered together they will be burned in the fire. Isaiah 33:10-1213Hear, you who are far off, what I have done; and you who are near, acknowledge my might. 14The sinners in Zion are afraid; trembling has seized the heathen. Who among us will live with devouring fire? Who among us will live with everlasting burnings? 15He who walks righteously and speaks uprightly; he who despises treachery and oppression, who refuses to accept a bribe, who stops his ears that he may not hear of bloodshed, and shuts his eyes that he may not see evil. 16He will live on high; his place of defense will be the precipice of rocks; his bread will be given him; his water will be sure. Isaiah 33:13-1617Your eyes will see the king in his beauty; they will look at the lands that are far off. 18Your heart will learn fear. Where is the scribe? Where is the weigher? Where is he who counted towers for a mighty people? 19You will not see a fierce people, a people of a deeper speech, of a stammering tongue, so that he cannot be understood. Isaiah 33:17-1920Look on Zion, the city of our solemnities; your eyes will see Jerusalem a rich habitation, a tent that will not be shaken to and fro; whose pegs will never be removed, nor will any of its cords be broken. 21For there the name of the Master is glorious to us; he will be for us a place of light, an enlightenment, and an open space made by the hand; in which the authority of a prince will not reign, nor will the mighty one be able to invade it. 22For the Master is our judge, the Master is our lawgiver, the Master is our king; and he is our savior. Isaiah 33:20-2223Your riggings are loosed; they could not well hold straight their mast, they could not spread the sail; until they have divided the prey, a multitude of lame will take it. 24The inhabitant will not say, I am sick; the people who live in it will be forgiven their iniquity. Isaiah 33:23-24 (Isaiah 33 BRB)


10For the violence against your brother Jacob shame will cover you and you will be cut off forever. 11In the day that you stood against him, in the day that strangers carried his forces away captive and foreigners entered into his gates and cast lots on Jerusalem, even you were as 1 of them. 12You should not have looked for the day of your brother's disaster in the day when he was afflicted by strangers, nor should you have rejoiced over the children of Judah in the day of their destruction, nor should you have spoken proudly in the day of distress. 13You should not have entered into the gate of my people in the day of their calamity, nor should you have rejoiced over their misfortune in the day of their distress, nor should you have terrified his forces in the day of their calamity. 14You should not have stood in the narrow pass to cut off his fugitives, nor should you have delivered up his survivors in the day of distress. (Obadiah 1:10-14 BRB)


FE 17On the mount of Zion will be deliverance and holiness will be there. The house of Jacob will inherit those who inherited them. I Isaiah 16:12 18The house of Jacob will be a fire and the house of Joseph a flame and the house of Esau stubble. They will kindle in them and devour them and there will not be a fugitive remaining to the house of Esau, I Isaiah 16:14 for the Master has spoken it. (Obadiah 1:17-18 BRB)
