Battles in the Gate

Isaiah 28

28:1 Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of  Ephraim, whose glorious beauty is a fading flower, which are on the head of the  fat valleys of them that are overcome with  wine!   28:2 Behold, YHWH hath a mighty and strong  one, which as a tempest of hail and a destroying storm, as a flood of mighty  waters overflowing, shall cast down to the earth with the  hand.   28:3 The crown of pride, the drunkards of Ephraim,  shall be trodden under feet:   28:4 And the glorious beauty, which is on the head of  the fat valley, shall be a fading flower, and as the hasty fruit before the  summer; which when he that looketh upon it seeth, while it is yet in his hand he  eateth it up.   28:5 In that day shall YHWH of hosts be for a  crown of glory, and for a diadem of beauty, unto the residue of his  people,   28:6 And for a spirit of judgment:   judgment, justice, ordinance   a)judgment   1)act of deciding a case   2)place, court, seat of judgment   3)process, procedure, litigation (before judges)   4)case, cause (presented for judgment)   5)sentence, decision (of judgment)   6)execution (of judgment)   7)time (of judgment)   b)justice, right, rectitude (attributes of God or man)   c)ordinance   d)decision (in law)   e)right, privilege, due (legal)   f)proper, fitting, measure, fitness, custom, manner, plan   to him that sitteth in judgment,   1)strength, might   a)strength   b)might, valour, bravery   c)might, mighty deeds (of God) for strength to them that turn   10)to reverse, revoke the battle to the  gate. a)gate (of entrance)   b)gate (of space inside gate, i.e. marketplace, public meeting place)   1)city, town   c)gate (of palace, royal castle, temple, court of tabernacle)   d)heaven   28:7 But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment.28:8 For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, o that there is no place clean.   28:9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.28:10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:   28:11 For with stammering lips and another tonguewill he speak to this people.   28:12 To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.   28:13 But the word of YHWH was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.28:14 Wherefore hear the word of YHWH, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is inJer usa lem.   28:15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge  shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves   28:16 Therefore thus saith the Master YHWH, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.   28:17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and  righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies,  and the waters shall overflow the hiding  place.   28:18 And your covenant with death shall be  disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing  scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by  it.   28:19 From the time that it goeth forth it shall take  you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it  shall be a vexation only to understand the  report.   28:20 For the bed is shorter than that a man can  stretch himself on it: and the covering narrower than that he can wrap himself  in it.   28:21 For YHWH shall rise up as in mount  Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act.   28:22 Now therefore be ye not mockers, lest your  bands be made strong: for I have heard from the Master YHWH of hosts a  consumption, even determined upon the whole  earth.   28:23 Give ye ear, and hear my voice; hearken, and  hear my speech.   28:24 Doth the plowman plow all day to sow? doth he  open and break the clods of his ground?   28:25 When he hath made plain the face thereof, doth  he not cast abroad the fitches, and scatter the cummin, and cast in the  principal wheat and the appointed barley and rie in their  place?   28:26 For his Elohim doth instruct him to discretion,  and doth teach him.   28:27 For the fitches are not threshed with a  threshing instrument, neither is a cart wheel turned about upon the cummin; but  the fitches are beaten out with a staff, and the cummin with a  rod.   28:28 Bread corn is bruised; because he will not ever  be threshing it, nor break it with the wheel of his cart, nor bruise it with his  horsemen.   28:29 This also cometh forth from YHWH of  hosts, which is wonderful in counsel, and excellent in  working.
