Isaiah 24


Behold, the Lord maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof.


And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him.


The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the Lord hath spoken this word.


The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languisheth and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish.


The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof: because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.
