Isaiah 3:1 - 3:7

Yahweh Will Judge Judah’s Leaders

For behold, the Lord, Yahweh of hosts, is going to remove from Jerusalem and Judah
Both supply and support, the whole supply of bread
And the whole supply of water,
The mighty man and the man of war,
The judge and the prophet,
The diviner and the elder,
The commander of fifty and the highly respected man,
The counselor and the wise craftsman,
And the experienced enchanter.
And I will make young men their princes,
And capricious children will rule over them,
And the people will be oppressed,
Each one by another, and each one by his neighbor;
The youth will overwhelm the elder
And the dishonorable against the honorable.
When a man grasps his brother in his father’s house, saying,
“You have a cloak, you shall be our ruler,
And these ruins will be under your hand,”
He will protest on that day, saying,
“I will not be your healer,
For in my house there is neither bread nor cloak;
You should not appoint me ruler of the people.”
