Isaiah 24:17–23

M S
G
V

17  Terror, and the pit, and the trap, are upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth.

17  Fear, and a pit, and a snare, are upon you that dwell on the earth.

17  Dread, and the pit, and the snare are over you, O inhabitant of the earth!

M G S
V

18  And it shall come to pass, that he who fleeth from the noise of the terror shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the trap; for the windows on high are opened, and the foundations of the earth do shake;

18  And this shall be: whoever will flee from the voice of dread will fall into the pit. And whoever will extricate himself from the pit will be caught in the snare. For the floodgates from above have been opened, and the foundations of the earth will be shaken.

M S
G
V

19  The earth is broken, broken down, the earth is crumbled in pieces, the earth trembleth and tottereth;

19  the earth shall be utterly confounded, and the earth shall be completely perplexed.

19  The earth will be utterly broken! The earth will be utterly crushed! The earth will be utterly shaken!

M G S
V

20  The earth reeleth to and fro like a drunken man, and swayeth to and fro as a lodge; and the transgression thereof is heavy upon it, and it shall fall, and not rise again.

20  The earth will stagger greatly, like a drunken man, and will be carried away, like the tent of a single night. And its iniquity will be heavy upon it, and it will fall and not rise up again.

M S
G
V

21  And it shall come to pass in that day, that YHWH will punish the host of the high heaven on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth.

21  And God shall bring his hand upon the host of heaven, and upon the kings of the earth.

21  And this shall be: in that day, the Lord will visit upon the armies of the sky above, and upon the kings of the earth who are on the ground.

22  And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the dungeon, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be punished.

22  And they shall gather the multitude thereof into prisons, and they shall shut them into a strong hold: after many generations they shall be visited.

22  And they will be gathered together like the gathering of one bundle into a pit. And they will be enclosed in that place, as in a prison. And after many days, they will be visited.

23  Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed; for YHWH of hosts will reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before His elders shall be Glory.

23  And the brick shall decay, and the wall shall fall; for the Lord shall reign from out of Sion, and out of Jerusalem, and shall be glorified before his elders.

23  And the moon will be ashamed, and the sun will be confounded, when the Lord of hosts will reign on mount Zion and in Jerusalem, and when he will have been glorified in the sight of his elders.
