Isaiah 22 ©
The prophet lamenteth the invasion of Jewry; he reproveth their trust in human means, and not in God; and their desperate rioting, when the times called for humiliation. He prophesieth the downfall of Shebna, and Eliakim's advancement in his room.
And it was xrevealed in mine ears by the LORD of hosts, ySurely this iniquity shall not be purged from you till ye die, saith the Lord GOD of hosts.
And I fwill clothe him with thy robe, and strengthen him with thy girdle, and I will commit thy government into his hand: and he shall be a gfather to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Judah.
And they kshall hang upon him all the glory of his father's house, the offspring and the issue, all 10vessels of small quantity, from the vessels of cups, even to all the vessels of flagons.
In that day, saith the LORD of hosts, shall lthe nail that is fastened in the sure place be removed, and be cut down, and fall; and the mburden that was upon it shall be cut off: nfor the LORD hath spoken it.
