You say, “Let’s feast and drink,
for tomorrow we die!”
The LORD of Heaven’s Armies has revealed this to me: “ Till the day you die,
you will never be forgiven for this sin.” That is the judgment of the Lord, the
LORD of Heaven’s Armies.
A Message for Shebna / Isaiah 22:15-25
This is what the Lord, the LORD of Heaven’s Armies, said to me: “Confront
Shebna, the palace administrator, and give him this message:
“Who do you think you are,
and what are you doing here,
building a beautiful tomb for yourself—
a monument high up in the rock?
For the LORD is about to hurl you away, mighty man.
He is going to grab you,
crumple you into a ball,
and toss you away into a distant, barren land.
There you will die,
and your glorious chariots will be broken and useless.
You are a disgrace to your master!
“Yes, I will drive you out of office,” says the LORD. “I will pull you down from
your high position. 20And then I will call my servant Eliakim son of Hilkiah to
replace you. 21 I will dress him in your royal robes and will give him your title and
your authority. And he will be a father to the people of Jerusalem and Judah. 22 I
will give him the key to the house of David—the highest position in the royal
court. When he opens doors, no one will be able to close them; when he closes
doors, no one will be able to open them. 23 He will bring honor to his family
name, for I will drive him firmly in place like a nail in the wall. 24 They will give
him great responsibility, and he will bring honor to even the lowliest members
of his family.*”
But the LORD of Heaven’s Armies also says: “ The time will come when I will
pull out the nail that seemed so firm. It will come out and fall to the ground.
Everything it supports will fall with it. I, the LORD, have spoken!”
A Message about Tyre / Isaiah 23:1-18
This message came to me concerning Tyre:
Wail, you trading ships of Tarshish,
for the harbor and houses of Tyre are gone!
The rumors you heard in Cyprus*
are all true.
Mourn in silence, you people of the coast
and you merchants of Sidon.
Your traders crossed the sea,*
sailing over deep waters.
22:24 Hebrew They will hang on him all the glory of his father’s house: its offspring and offshoots, all its lesser vessels, from the
bowls to all the jars. 23:1 Hebrew Kittim; also in 23:12. 23:2 As in Dead Sea Scrolls and Greek version; Masoretic
Text reads Those who have gone over the sea have filled you.
