1 a b of c, which Isaiah the son of Amoz did see.
2 Lift ye up a a upon the high b, c the voice unto them, shake the hand, that they may go into the gates of the nobles.
3 I have commanded my a, I have also called my b ones for mine anger, even them that rejoice in my highness.
4 The noise of a multitude in the mountains, like as of a great people; a tumultuous noise of the a of nations gathered together: the Lord of hosts mustereth the host of the b.
5 They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, even the Lord, and the weapons of his indignation, to a the whole land.
6 ¶a ye; for the b of the Lord is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.
7 Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man’s heart shall a:
8 And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in a as a woman that b: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.
9 Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall a the sinners thereof out of it.
10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be a in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.
11 And I will a the b for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the c of the d.
12 I will make a man more a than fine gold; even a man than the b wedge of Ophir.
13 Therefore I will a the heavens, and the b shall c out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts, and in the day of his fierce d.
14 And it shall be as the a, and as a sheep that b: they shall every man turn to his own c, and flee every one into his own d.
15 Every one that is found shall be a through; and every one that is joined unto them shall fall by the sword.
16 Their a also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their b shall be c, and their wives ravished.
17 Behold, I will stir up the a against them, which shall not regard silver; and as for gold, they shall not delight in it.
18 Their bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eye shall not spare children.
19 ¶And a, the glory of kingdoms, the b of the c excellency, shall be as when God d e and Gomorrah.
20 It shall never be a, neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation: neither shall the Arabian pitch tent there; neither shall the shepherds make their fold there.
21 But a beasts of the desert shall lie there; and their houses shall be full of doleful creatures; and owls shall dwell there, and b shall dance there.
22 And the wild beasts of the islands shall cry in their desolate a, and b in their pleasant palaces: and her time is near to come, and her days shall not be prolonged.
