Listen, O        In the beginning God   Give ear, O heavens, and let
heavens, and     created the heavens    me speak; and let the earth
hear, O earth    and the earth          hear the words of my mouth
       Isaiah 1:2-3
2 Listen, O heavens, and hear, O earth;
For the LORD speaks,
“Sons I have reared and brought up,
But they have revolted against Me.
3 An ox knows its owner,

And a donkey its master's manger,
But Israel does not know,
My people do not understand.”
         Isaiah 1:4
Alas, sinful nation,
People weighed down with iniquity,
Offspring of evildoers,        Literally “Seed
                               of Evil Ones.”
Sons who act corruptly!
They have abandoned the Lord,
They have despised the Holy One of Israel,
They have turned away from Him.
          Isaiah 1:10-11
10 Hear the word of the LORD,
You rulers of Sodom;
Give ear to the instruction of our God,
You people of Gomorrah.
11 "What are your multiplied sacrifices to Me?"

Says the LORD.
"I have had enough of burnt offerings of rams,
And the fat of fed cattle.
And I take no pleasure in the blood of bulls,
lambs, or goats.
       Isaiah 1:21
How the faithful city has become a harlot,
She who was full of justice!
Righteousness once lodged in her,
But now murderers.



  The Faithful City      A Harlot
 Was once a           Is now a
 lodging place for    lodging place
 righteousness.       for murderers.
       Isaiah 1:26-27
26 Then I will restore your judges as at the first,
And your counselors as at the beginning;
After that you will be called the city of
righteousness,
A faithful city."
27 Zion will be redeemed with justice

And her repentant ones with righteousness.
           Isaiah 6:1
     In the year of King Uzziah's
death, I saw the Lord sitting on a
throne, lofty and exalted, with the
train of His robe filling the temple.
And King Uzziah was a leper to the day of his
death; and he lived in a separate house, being a
leper, for he was cut off from the house of the
LORD. And Jotham his son was over the king's
house judging the people of the land. 22 Now the
rest of the acts of Uzziah, first to last, the
prophet Isaiah, the son of Amoz, has written. (2
Chronicles 26:21-22).
         Isaiah 6:2-4
      Seraphim stood above Him, each
having six wings; with two he covered
his face, and with two he covered his
feet, and with two he flew. 3 And one
called out to another and said, “Holy,
Holy, Holy, is the LORD of hosts, The
whole earth is full of His glory.” 4 And
the foundations of the thresholds
trembled at the voice of him who called
out, while the temple was filling with
smoke.
         Isaiah 6:5
    Then I said, “Woe is me, for I
am ruined! Because I am a man of
unclean lips, And I live among a
people of unclean lips; For my eyes
have seen the King, the LORD of
hosts.”
        Isaiah 6:6-7
      Then one of the seraphim flew
to me, with a burning coal in his
hand which he had taken from the
altar with tongs. 7 And he touched
my mouth with it and said, “Behold,
this has touched your lips; and
your iniquity is taken away, and
your sin is forgiven.”

       Isaiah 36:1
     Now it came about in the
fourteenth year of King Hezekiah,
Sennacherib king of Assyria came
up against all the fortified cities of
Judah and seized them.
     Isaiah 37:36-37
36   Then the angel of the LORD
went out, and struck 185,000 in the
camp of the Assyrians; and when
men arose early in the morning,
behold, all of these were dead.
37   So Sennacherib, king of
Assyria, departed and returned
home, and lived at Nineveh.

Nor make His voice heard in the street.

And a dimly burning wick He will not

Until He has established justice in the
earth;
And the coastlands will wait expectantly
for His law.
