Distressed Yerushalayim

33:1  Woe  to you who plunder, though you have not been plundered; And you who deal treacherously, though they have not dealt 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.

33:2 O ADONAI (יהוה), be gracious to us; We have waited for You. Be their arm every morning, Our salvation (יְשׁוּעָה) also in the time of trouble.

33:3 At the noise of the tumult the people fled; at the lifting up of yourself the nations were scattered.

33:4 And your spoil shall be gathered [like] the gathering of the caterpiller: as the running to and fro of locusts shall he run upon them.

33:5 ADONAI (יהוה) is exalted; for he dwelleth on high: he has filled Tziyon with judgment and tzedek.

33:6  And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of your times, [and] strength of salvation: the fear of ADONAI (יהוה) [is] his treasure.

33:7  Behold, their valiant ones shall cry without: the ambassadors of peace shall weep bitterly.

33:8 The highways lie waste, the wayfaring man ceases: he has broken the covenant, he has despised the cities, he regards no man.

33:9 The earth mourns [and] languishs: Levanon is ashamed [and] hewn down: Sharon is like a wilderness; and Bashan and Carmel shake off [their fruits].

33:10 Now will I rise, said ADONAI (יהוה); now will I be exalted; now will I lift up myself.

33:11 You shall conceive chaff, You shall bring forth stubble;Your breath, as fire, shall devour you.

33:12 And the people shall be [as] the burnings of lime: [as] thorns cut up shall they be burned in the fire.

33:13 Hear, you [that are] far off, what I have done; and, you [that are] near, acknowledge my might.

33:14 The sinners in Tziyon are afraid; fearfulness has surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?

33:15 He that halak Tzadakot, and speaketh meisharim (right thing); he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shakes his hands from holding of bribes, that stops his ears from hearing of blood, and shuts his eyes from seeing evil;

33:16 He shall dwell on high: his place of defence [shall be] the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters [shall be] sure.

33:17 Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off.

33:18 Thine heart shall meditate terror. Where [is] the scribe? where [is] the receiver? where [is] he that counted the towers?

33:19 Thou shall not see a fierce people, a people of a deeper speech than you canst perceive; of a stammering tongue, [that you canst] not understand.

33:20 Look upon Tziyon, the city of our solemnities: your eyes shall see Yerushalayim a quiet habitation, a tabernacle [that] shall not be taken down; not one of the stakes thereof shall ever be removed, neither shall any of the cords thereof be broken.

33:21 But there the glorious ADONAI (יהוה) [will be] to us a place of broad rivers [and] streams; wherein shall go no galley with oars, neither shall gallant ship pass thereby.

33:22 כִּ֤י יְהוָה֙ שֹׁפְטֵ֔נוּ יְהוָ֖ה מְחֹקְקֵ֑נוּ יְהוָ֥ה מַלְכֵּ֖נוּ ה֥וּא יוֹשִׁיעֵֽנוּ׃

Ki ADONAI shofetenu, ADONAI mechokekenu; ADONAI malkenu hu yoshi'enu.

For ADONAI (יהוה) is our judge, ADONAI (יהוה) is our lawgiver, ADONAI (יהוה) is our king. He will save us.

33:23 Thy tacklings are loosed; they could not well strengthen their mast, they could not spread the sail: then is the prey of a great spoil divided; the lame take the prey.

33:24 And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein [shall be] forgiven [their] iniquity.
