1 The Uision of Isaiah the sonne of Amoz, which hee sawe concerning Iudah and Ierusalem, in the dayes of Uzziah, Iotham, Ahaz, & Hezekiah kings of Iudah.

2 Heare, O heauens, and giue eare, O earth: for the Lord hath spoken; I haue nourished and brought vp children, and they haue rebelled against me.

3 The oxe knoweth his owner, and the asse his masters cribbe: but Israel doeth not know, my people doeth not consider.

4 Ah sinnefull nation, a people laden with iniquitie, a seede of euill doers, children that are corrupters: they haue forsaken the Lord, they haue prouoked the Holy one of Israel vnto anger, they are gone away backward.

5 Why should yee be stricken any more? yee will reuolt more and more: the whole head is sicke, and the whole heart faint.

6 From the sole of the foote, euen vnto the head, there is no soundnesse in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they haue not beene closed, neither bound vp, neither mollified with oyntment.

7 Your countrey is desolate, your cities are burnt with fire: your land, strangers deuoure it in your presence, and it is desolate as ouerthrowen by strangers.

8 And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged citie.

9 Except the Lord of hostes had left vnto vs a very small remnant, we should haue beene as Sodom, and we should haue bene like vnto Gomorrah.

10 Heare the word of the Lord, ye rulers of Sodom, giue eare vnto the Law of our God, yee people of Gomorrah.

11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices vnto me, sayth the Lord? I am full of the burnt offerings of rammes, and the fat of fedde beasts, and I delight not in the blood of bullockes, or of lambes, or of hee goates.

12 When ye come to appeare before mee, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts?

13 Bring no more vaine oblations, incense is an abomination vnto me: the new Moones, and Sabbaths, the calling of assemblies I cannot away with; it is iniquitie, euen the solemne meeting.

14 Your new Moones, and your appointed Feasts my soule hateth: they are a trouble vnto me, I am weary to beare them.

15 And when ye spread foorth your handes, I will hide mine eyes from you; yea, when yee make many prayers I will not heare: your hands are full of blood.

16 Wash yee, make you cleane, put away the euill of your doings from before mine eyes, cease to doe euill,

17 Learne to doe well, seeke iudgement, relieue the oppressed, iudge the fatherlesse, plead for the widow.

18 Come now and let vs reason together, saith the Lord: though your sinnes be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimsin, they shall be as wooll.

19 If yee be willing and obedient, yee shall eate the good of the land.

20 But if yee refuse and rebell, yee shalbe deuoured with the sword: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.

21 Howe is the faithfull citie become an harlot? it was full of iudgement, righteousnesse lodged in it; but now murtherers.

22 Thy siluer is become drosse, thy wine mixt with water.

23 Thy princes are rebellious and companions of theeues: euery one loueth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they iudge not the fatherlesse, neither doth the cause of the widowe come vnto them.

24 Therefore, saith the Lord, the Lord of hostes, the mighty one of Israel; Ah, I will ease me of mine aduersaries, and auenge me of mine enemies.

25 And I will turne my hand vpon thee, and purely purge away thy drosse, and take away all thy tinne.

26 And I will restore thy iudges as at the first, and thy counsellers as at the beginning: afterward thou shalt be called the citie of righteousnesse, the faithfull citie.

27 Zion shall be redeemed with iudgement, and her conuerts with righteousnesse.

28 And the destruction of the transgressours and of the sinners shall be together: and they that forsake the Lord shall be consumed.

29 For they shall be ashamed of the okes which yee haue desired, and yee shalbe confounded for the gardens that yee haue chosen.

30 For yee shall be as an oke whose leafe fadeth, and as a garden that hath no water.

31 And the strong shall be as towe, and the maker of it as a sparke, and they shall both burne together, and none shall quench them.

Dennis's Isaiah Chapter 1 comment about verse 18 on 9/10/2015, 9:01pm...

This is a great verse for people like me who think their sins are not all removed because of the struggle with sin in our lives. These were clothes that had been dyed with strong colors that were permanent and wouldn't come out once dyed.


Danuelle Tucker's Isaiah Chapter 1 comment on 9/02/2015, 8:15pm...

Isaiah 1 is a reflection of the times we have entered into especially in the United States we have forsaken the God that has blessed this nation in the past because we obeyed him and now we have turned our back on God and went after false God's and left for the love of money. We have become rebellious like he said and refuse to hear him until something tragic happens. It sad that's the only time people now a days take the time to hear what thus saith the Lord until misfortune come. I pray that this nation will turn back their hearts and minds to God and allow him to rid this nation of it's impurities.


LL's Isaiah Chapter 1 comment on 8/31/2015, 6:34pm...

The mentioning of Sodom and Gommorah, also reminds me of the now times..if you noticed since the passing of bills all over the country for gay rights, that same behavior was extremely prevalent back then and both cities were destroyed. In addition, Bible prophecy states that people will be waxed cold...and boy are they! This country is in bad shape and a lot of that has to do with the expulsion of God in this country. People are really disobedient and moving God out of schools and other places, has caused havoc and it already is doing just that, this country is no longer protected but we as Christians, nothing will harm we need to stay prayed up to intercede. God be with us


Billy j adkins's Isaiah Chapter 1 comment on 8/24/2015, 7:54pm...

HARY COLLINS's Isaiah Chapter 1 comment on 8/14/2015, 1:45am...

God is ever ready and willing to receive us back if we can make a sincere turn from our evil life style.I advice we do it now that we still have the opportunity because the next one second might be too late.


Gwendolen's Isaiah Chapter 1 comment on 7/30/2015, 5:30am...

People are vain, people of color are being oppressed more than before, children are killin family, vanity is out of control, there is not love, people have turned away from GOD and the church and doing what pleases their flesh. Homosexuality is made legal to marry, and times are worst than ever before, but GOD is still in control, and he will get our attention. We have to began to PRAY and seek him NOW! Before destruction comes and we are consumed. I am a woman after GOD's own heart. Matt 6:33


Brianna's Isaiah Chapter 1 comment about verse 18 on 7/22/2015, 5:57am...

One Bible translates this to mean " let us set things straight between us ". So Jehovah wants people to come into an approved state with him. Jehovah has made himself available, and is even willing to blot out even the most crimson of sins. He doesn 't force people to worship him, but he is always making the way for lost sheep to find him.


Mike Vs 11's Isaiah Chapter 1 comment on 7/08/2015, 2:27am...

I look at our churches today and I see much sacrifice of goods but little sacrifice of heart. God was not pleased with the bullocks and rams. Nor is he pleased with our cash or cars or whatever when he does not have our hearts. It is time that we as christians give God our heart and not simply lip service. We can walk a walk and talk a talk at church but our homes are riddled with the sins and weights of this world. Soft porn flows through almost every T.V., immodesty hangs in most closets just waiting to be worn. It is as if somhow we think that the filth we allow on the T.V. and the lack of morals we display in everyday living is somhow missed by God and he is ok with it. Obviously he was not fooled by the Israelites and he is not fooled by us.
