“Woe to you who plunder, though you have not been plundered;And you who deal treacherously, though they have not felt treacherously with you! When you cease plundering, You will be plundered;When you make an end of dealing treacherously,They will deal treacherously with you. O LORD, Be gracious to us;We have waited for You. Be their arm every morning, Our salvation also in time of trouble.At the noise of the tumult the people shall flee; When You lift Yourself up, the nations shall be scattered ;And Your plunder shall be gathered Like the gathering of the caterpillar;As the running to and fro of locusts, He shall run upon them. The LORD is exalted, for He dwells on High; He has filled Zion with justice and righteousness. Wisdom and knowledge will be the stability of your times, And the strength of salvation. The fear of the LORD is His treasure.” Isaiah 33: 1-6 New King James Version of the Bible
“Doom to you Destroyer, not yet destroyed;And doom to you Betrayer, not yet betrayed. When you finish destroying, your turn will come-destroyed! When you quit betraying, your turn will come-betrayed!God treat us kindly. You’re our only hope. First thing in the morning, be there for us! When things go bad, help us out!You spoke in thunder and everyone ran. You showed up and nations scattered. Your people, for a change got in on the loot, picking the field clean of the enemy spoils. God is supremely esteemed. His center holds. Zion brims over with all that is just and right. God keeps your days stable and secure, salvation, wisdom and knowledge in surplus. Isaiah 33: 1-6 The Message Version of the Bible
“Ah, you destroyer, who yourself have not been destroyed, you traitor, whom none has betrayed! When you have ceased to destroy, you will be destroyed;and when you have finished betraying they will betray you. O LORD, be gracious to us, we wait for you. Be our arm every morning, our salvation in the time of trouble. At the tumultuous noise peoples flee; when you lift yourself up, nations are scattered, and your spoil is gathered as the caterpillar gathers; as locusts leap, it is leapt upon.The LORD is exalted, for he dwells on high; he will fill Zion with justice and righteousness, and he will be the stability of your times, abundance of salvation, wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the LORD is Zion’s treasure.” Isaiah33 :1-6 English Standard Version of the Bible
