The blessings of Christ's Kingdom.
Isaiah 32:1 Behold a king shall reign in justice, and princes shall rule in judgment. Isaiah 32:2 And a man shall be as when one is hid from the wind, and hideth himself from a storm, as rivers of waters in drought, and the shadow of a rock that standeth out in a desert land. Isaiah 32:3 The eyes of them that see shall not be dim, and the ears of them that hear shall hearken diligently. Isaiah 32:4 And the heart of fools shall understand knowledge, and the tongue of stammerers shall speak readily and plain. Isaiah 32:5 The fool shall no more be called prince: neither shall the deceitful be called great: Isaiah 32:6 For the fool will speak foolish things, and his heart will work iniquity, to practise hypocrisy, and speak to the Lord deceitfully, and to make empty the soul of the hungry, and take away drink from the thirsty. Isaiah 32:7 The vessels of the deceitful are most wicked: for he hath framed devices to destroy the meek, with lying words, when the poor man speaketh judgment. Isaiah 32:8 But the prince will devise such things as are worthy of a prince, and he shall stand above the rulers.
Desolation is foreshewn.
Isaiah 32:9 Rise up, ye rich women, and hear my voice: ye confident daughters, give ear to my speech. Isaiah 32:10 For after days and a year, you that are confident shall be troubled: for the vintage is at an end, the gathering shall come no more. Isaiah 32:11 Be astonished, ye rich women, be troubled, ye confident ones: strip you, and be confounded, gird your loins. Isaiah 32:12 Mourn for your breasts, for the delightful country, for the fruitful vineyard. Isaiah 32:13 Upon the land of my people shall thorns and briers come up: how much more upon all the houses of joy, of the city that rejoiced? Isaiah 32:14 For the house is forsaken, the multitude of the city is left, darkness and obscurity are come upon its dens for ever. A joy of wild asses, the pastures of flocks.
Restoration is promised to succeed.
Isaiah 32:15 Until the spirit be poured upon us from on high: and the desert shall be as a charmel, and charmel shall be counted for a forest. Isaiah 32:16 An judgment shall dwell in the wilderness, and justice shall sit in charmel. Isaiah 32:17 And the work of justice shall be peace, and the service of justice quietness, and security for ever. Isaiah 32:18 And my people shall sit in the beauty of peace, and in the tabernacles of confidence, and in wealthy rest. Isaiah 32:19 But hail shall be in the descent of the forest, and the city shall be made very low. Isaiah 32:20 Blessed are ye that sow upon all waters, sending thither the foot of the ox and the ass.
