The prophet threateneth Ephraim for thier pride and drunkenness.

Isaiah 28:1 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} 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! Isaiah 28:2 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Behold, the Lord 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. Isaiah 28:3 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} The crown of pride, the drunkards of Ephraim, shall be trodden under feet: Isaiah 28:4 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} 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.

The residue shall be advanced in the Kingdom of Christ.

Isaiah 28:5 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} In that day shall the LORD of hosts be for a crown of glory, and for a diadem of beauty, unto the residue of his people, Isaiah 28:6 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And for a spirit of judgment to him that sitteth in judgment, and for strength to them that turn the battle to the gate.

He rebuketh their error.

Isaiah 28:7 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} 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.

Isaiah 28:10 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} For precept [must be] upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, [and] there a little: Isaiah 28:11 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people. Isaiah 28:12 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} 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. Isaiah 28:13 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} But the word of the LORD 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.

and their security.

Isaiah 28:14 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which [is] in Jerusalem. Isaiah 28:15 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} 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:

Christ the sure foundation is promised.

Isaiah 28:16 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, 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. Isaiah 28:17 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} 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.

Their security shall be tried.

Isaiah 28:18 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} 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. Isaiah 28:19 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} 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.

Isaiah 28:21 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} For the LORD 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.
