    MESSAGE TO JAMAICA

    ISAIAH 1

     1 – The vision concerning Judah and Jerusalem that Isaiah son of Amoz saw during the reigns of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, kings of Judah.

     

    A Rebellious Nation

    2 – Hear, O heavens! Listen, O earth! For the Lord has spoken: “I reared children and brought them up,

    but they have rebelled against me.

    3 – The ox knows his master, the donkey his owner’s manger, but Israel does not know, my people do not understand.”

    4 – Ah, sinful nation, a people loaded with guilt, a brood of evildoers, children given to corruption!

    They have forsaken the Lord ; they have spurned the Holy One of Israel and turned their backs on him.

    5 – Why should you be beaten anymore? Why do you persist in rebellion? Your whole head is injured,

    your whole heart afflicted.

    6 – From the sole of your foot to the top of your head there is no soundness- only wounds and welts

    and open sores, not cleansed or bandaged or soothed with oil.

    7 – Your country is desolate, your cities burned with fire; your fields are being stripped by foreigners

    right before you, laid waste as when overthrown by strangers.

    8 – The Daughter of Zion is left like a shelter in a vineyard, like a hut in a field of melons, like a city under siege.

    9 – Unless the Lord Almighty had left us some survivors, we would have become like Sodom, we would have been like Gomorrah.

    10 – Hear the word of the Lord , you rulers of Sodom; listen to the law of our God, you people of Gomorrah!

    11-  “The multitude of your sacrifices- what are they to me?” says the Lord . “I have more than enough of burnt offerings, of rams and the fat of fattened animals; I have no pleasure in the blood of bulls and lambs and goats.

    12 – When you come to appear before me, who has asked this of you, this trampling of my courts?

    13 – Stop bringing meaningless offerings! Your incense is detestable to me. New Moons, Sabbaths and convocations- I cannot bear your evil assemblies.

    14 – Your New Moon festivals and your appointed feasts my soul hates. They have become a burden to me; I am weary of bearing them.

    15 – When you spread out your hands in prayer, I will hide my eyes from you; even if you offer many prayers, I will not listen. Your hands are full of blood;

    16 – wash and make yourselves clean. Take your evil deeds out of my sight! Stop doing wrong,

    17 – learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless,

    plead the case of the widow.

    18 – “Come now, let us reason together,” says the Lord . “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.

    19 – If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the best from the land;

    20 – but if you resist and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword.” For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.

    21 – See how the faithful city has become a harlot! She once was full of justice; righteousness used to dwell in her- but now murderers!

    22 – Your silver has become dross, your choice wine is diluted with water.

    23 – Your rulers are rebels, companions of thieves; they all love bribes and chase after gifts. They do not defend the cause of the fatherless; the widow’s case does not come before them.

    24 – Therefore the Lord, the Lord Almighty, the Mighty One of Israel, declares: “Ah, I will get relief from my foes and avenge myself on my enemies.

    25 – I will turn my hand against you; I will thoroughly purge away your dross and remove all your impurities.

    26 – I will restore your judges as in days of old, your counselors as at the beginning. Afterward you will be called the City of Righteousness, the Faithful City.”

    27 – Zion will be redeemed with justice, her penitent ones with righteousness.

    28 – But rebels and sinners will both be broken, and those who forsake the Lord will perish.

    29 – “You will be ashamed because of the sacred oaks in which you have delighted; you will be disgraced because of the gardens that you have chosen.

    30 – You will be like an oak with fading leaves, like a garden without water.

    31 – The mighty man will become tinder and his work a spark; both will burn together, with no one to quench the fire.”
