The Bible in Its Traditions

Isaiah 3:25–4:1


25  Thy men shall fall by the sword, and thy mighty in the war.

25  And thy most beautiful son whom thou lovest shall fall by the sword; and your mighty men shall fall by the sword, and shall be brought low.

25  Likewise, your most handsome men will fall by the sword, and your strong men will fall in battle.

26  And her gates shall lament and mourn; and utterly bereft she shall sit upon the ground.

26  And the stores of your ornaments shall mourn, and thou shalt be left alone, and shalt be levelled with the ground.

26  And her gates will grieve and mourn. And she will sit on the ground, desolate.


4:1  And seven women shall take hold of one man in that day, saying: 'We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel; only let us be called by thy name; take thou away our reproach.'
