The Book of Isaiah Chapter 28 – New King James Version (NKJV) – Audio Bible

Chapter 28 Woe to the crown of Pride to the Drunkards of Ephraim whose glorious Beauty is a Fading Flower Which is at the head of The Verdant Valleys To those who are overcome with wine Behold The Lord has a mighty and strong one Like a tempest of hail and a destroying Storm Like a flood of Mighty Waters Overflowing who will bring them down to The Earth with his hand The crown of Pride the drunkards of Ephraim will be trampled underfoot And the Glorious beauty is a Fading Flower which is at the head of The Verdant Valley Like the first fruit before the summer Which an observer sees He eats it up while it is still in his Hand In that day the Lord of hosts will be For a Crown of Glory and a diadem of Beauty to the remnant of his people For a spirit of Justice to him who sits In judgment And for strength to those who turn back The battle at the gate But they also have erred through wine And through intoxicating drink are out Of the way The priest and the prophet have erred

Through intoxicating drink They are swallowed up by wine They are out of the way through Intoxicating drink They er in Vision they stumble in Judgment For all tables are full of vomit and Filth no place is clean Whom will he teach knowledge And whom will he make to understand the Message Those just weaned from milk Those just drawn from the breasts For precept must be upon precept Precept upon precept line upon line line Upon line Here a little there a little For with stammering lips and another Tongue he will speak to this people to Whom he said This is the rest with which you may Cause the weary to rest And this is the refreshing Yet they would not hear But the word of the Lord was to them Precept upon precept precept upon Precept line upon line line upon line Here a little bear a little That they might go and fall backward and Be broken and snared and caught Therefore hear the word of the Lord you Scornful men who rule this people who Are in Jerusalem Because you have said

We have made a covenant with death And with sheol we are in agreement When the overflowing Scourge passes Through it will not come to us For we have made lies our refuge and Under falsehood we have hidden ourselves Therefore thus says the Lord God Behold I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation A tried Stone a precious Cornerstone a Sure Foundation Whoever believes will not act hastily Also I will make Justice the measuring Line And righteousness the plummet The hill will sweep away the Refuge of Lies And the waters will overflow The Hiding Place Your Covenant with death will be Annulled And your agreement with sheol will not Stand When the overflowing Scourge passes Through Then you will be trampled down by it As often as it goes out it will take you For morning by morning it will pass over And by day and by night It will be a terror just to understand The report For the bed is too short to stretch out On And the covering so narrow that one

Cannot wrap himself in it For the Lord will rise up as at Mount Pirezim He will be angry as in the valley of Gibeon that he may do his work his Awesome work and bring to pass his act His unusual Act Now therefore do not be mockers lest Your bonds be made strong For I have heard from the Lord God of Hosts a destruction determined even upon The whole Earth Givier and hear my voice Listen and hear my speech Does the plowman keep plowing all day to Sow Does he keep turning his soil and Breaking the clods When he has leveled its surface does he Not sow the Black come in and Scatter The coming Plant the wheat in Rose The barley in the appointed place and The spelled in its place For he instructs him in right judgment His God teaches him For the Black come in is not threshed With a threshing Sledge nor is a Cartwheel rolled over the coming But the Black come in is beaten out with A stick And the come in with a rod Bread flour must be ground Therefore he does not thresh it forever

Break it with his cartwheel or crush it With his Horsemen This also comes from The Lord of hosts Who is wonderful in Council and Excellent in guidance
