Isaiah 14:24–27

M S

V

24  YHWH of hosts hath sworn, saying: Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand,

24  Thus saith the Lord of hosts, As I have said, so it shall be: and as I have purposed, so the matter shall remain

24  The Lord of hosts has sworn, saying: Surely, just as I have considered it, so shall it be, and in the same manner as I have drawn it through my mind,

25  That I will break Asshur in My land, and upon My mountains tread him under foot; then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulder.

25  even to destroy the Assyrians upon my land, and upon my mountains: and they shall be for trampling; and their yoke shall be taken away from them, and their glory shall be taken away from their shoulders.

25  so shall it occur. So shall I crush the Assyrian in my land, and I will trample him upon my mountains, and his yoke will be taken away from them, and his burden will be removed from their shoulder.

26  This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth; and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations.

26  This is the plan that I have decided, concerning the entire earth, and this is the hand which is extended over all the nations.

26  This is the end that is purposed against all the earth; and this is the land that is stretched out against all the nations.

27  For YHWH of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? And His hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?

27  For what the Holy God has purposed, who shall frustrate? and who shall turn back his uplifted hand?

27  For the Lord of hosts has decreed it, and who is able to weaken it? And his hand is extended, so who can avert it?
