Isaiah

Isaiah 26:7-8

7 The path of the righteous is level; You, the Upright One, make the way of the righteous smooth. 8 Yes, Lord, walking in the way of Your laws, we wait for You; Your name and renown are the desire of our hearts. Through chapter twenty-four prophecies continue, then in chapter twenty-five there is a beautiful Praise to the Lord full of promises from God and judgment against Moab. Then in chapter twenty-six a Song of Praise with instructions to…

Isaiah 21:3-4

Isaiah 21:3-4 NIV 3 At this my body is racked with pain, pangs seize me, like those of a woman in labor; I am staggered by what I hear, I am bewildered by what I see. 4 My heart falters, fear makes me tremble; the twilight I longed for has become a horror to me. Isaiah 21:3-4 ESV 3 Therefore my loins are filled with anguish; pangs have seized me, like the pangs of a woman in labor; I am…

Isaiah 19:10, 19-22

10 The workers in cloth will be dejected, and all the wage earners will be sick at heart. 19 In that day there will be an altar to the Lord in the heart of Egypt, and a monument to the Lord at its border. 20 It will be a sign and witness to the Lord Almighty in the land of Egypt. When they cry out to the Lord because of their oppressors, he will send them a savior and defender,…
Isaiah

Isaiah 16:10-12

10 Joy and gladness are taken away from the orchards; no one sings or shouts in the vineyards; no one treads out wine at the presses, for I have put an end to the shouting. 11 My heart laments for Moab like a harp, my inmost being for Kir Hareseth. 12 When Moab appears at her high place, she only wears herself out; when she goes to her shrine to pray, it is to no avail. The against Moab which…
Isaiah

Isaiah 15:4-5

4 Heshbon and Elealeh cry out, their voices are heard all the way to Jahaz. Therefore the armed men of Moab cry out, and their hearts are faint. 5 My heart cries out over Moab; her fugitives flee as far as Zoar, as far as Eglath Shelishiyah. They go up the hill to Luhith, weeping as they go; on the road to Horonaim they lament their destruction. This chapter, all nine verses, is a prophecy against Moab from Almighty God…
Isaiah

Isaiah 14:12-15

12 How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations! 13 You said in your heart, “I will ascend to the heavens; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of Mount Zaphon. (Zaphon was the most sacred mountain of the Canaanites.) 14 I will ascend above…

Isaiah 13:6-8

6 Wail, for the day of the Lord is near; it will come like destruction from the Almighty. 7 Because of this, all hands will go limp, every heart will melt with fear. 8 Terror will seize them, pain and anguish will grip them; they will writhe like a woman in labor. They will look aghast at each other, their faces aflame. The title for this chapter is “A Prophecy Against Babylon” (NIV) and it is certainly fitting as the…
Isaiah

Isaiah 9:8-10

8 The Lord has sent a message against Jacob; it will fall on Israel. 9 All the people will know it—Ephraim and the inhabitants of Samaria—who say with pride and arrogance of heart, 10 “The bricks have fallen down, but we will rebuild with dressed stone; the fig trees have been felled, but we will replace them with cedars. The source of all pride is the heart and it is also the source of all arrogance as noted in verse…
Isaiah

Isaiah 7:1-4

1 When Ahaz son of Jotham, the son of Uzziah, was king of Judah, King Rezin of Aram and Pekah son of Remaliah king of Israel marched up to fight against Jerusalem, but they could not overpower it. 2 Now the house of David was told, “Aram has allied itself with Ephraim”; so the hearts of Ahaz and his people were shaken, as the trees of the forest are shaken by the wind. 3 Then the Lord said to Isaiah,…
Isaiah

Isaiah 6:9-10

Isaiah 6:9-10 NIV 9 He said, “Go and tell this people: “‘Be ever hearing, but never understanding; be ever seeing, but never perceiving.’ 10 Make the heart of this people calloused; make their ears dull and close their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed.” Isaiah 6:8c-10 LXX 8c And He said, Go, and say to this people, 9 Ye shall hear indeed, but ye shall…
Isaiah

Isaiah 1:5-6

Isaiah 1:5 NIV 5 Why should you be beaten anymore? Why do you persist in rebellion? Your whole head is injured, your whole heart afflicted. Isaiah 1:5 JUB 5 Why should I chastise you anymore? Ye will revolt more and more; every head is sick, and every heart faint. As we enter into Isaiah, the first occurrence of the word heart occurs in chapter one as above, the next not until chapter six. Chapter one introduces a vision given to…
Song of Solomon

Song of Songs 8:5b-7

5b Under the apple tree I roused you; there your mother conceived you, there she who was in labor gave you birth. 6 Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its ardor unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like the very flame of the Lord. 7 Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot sweep it away. If one were to give all the…
