33:1 Woe to thee that spoilest, and thou wast not spoiled; and dealest treacherously, and they dealt not treacherously with thee! When thou hast ceased to spoil, thou shalt be spoiled; and when thou art weary with dealing treacherously, they shall deal treacherously with thee.
33:2 O the Lord, be gracious unto us; we have waited for Thee; be Thou their arm every morning, our salvation also in the time of trouble.
33:3 At the noise of the tumult the peoples are fled; at the lifting up of Thyself the nations are scattered.
33:4 And your spoil is gathered as the caterpillar gathereth; as locusts leap do they leap upon it.
33:5 the Lord is exalted, for He dwelleth on high; He hath filled Zion with justice and righteousness.
33:6 And the stability of thy times shall be a hoard of salvation--wisdom and knowledge, and the fear of the Lord which is His treasurer
33:7 Behold, their valiant ones cry without; the ambassadors of peace weep bitterly.
33:8 The highways lie waste, the wayfaring man ceaseth; he hath broken the covenant, he hath despised the cities, he regardeth not man.
33:9 The land mourneth and languisheth; Lebanon is ashamed, it withereth; Sharon is like a wilderness; and Bashan and Carmel are clean bare.
33:10 Now will I arise, saith the Lord; now will I be exalted; now will I lift Myself up.
33:11 Ye conceive chaff, ye shall bring forth stubble; your breath is a fire that shall devour you.
33:12 And the peoples shall be as the burnings of lime; as thorns cut down, that are burned in the fire.
33:13 Hear, ye that are far off, what I have done; and, ye that are near, acknowledge My might.
33:14 The sinners in Zion are afraid; trembling hath seized the ungodly: 'Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? Who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?'
33:15 He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from looking upon evil;
33:16 He shall dwell on high; his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks; his bread shall be given, his waters shall be sure.
33:17 Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty; they shall behold a land stretching afar.
33:18 Thy heart shall muse on the terror: 'Where is he that counted, where is he that weighed? Where is he that counted the towers?'
33:19 Thou shalt not see the fierce people; a people of a deep speech that thou canst not perceive, of a stammering tongue that thou canst not understand.
33:20 Look upon Zion, the city of our solemn gatherings; thine eyes shall see Jerusalem a peaceful habitation, a tent that shall not be removed, the stakes whereof shall never be plucked up, neither shall any of the cords thereof be broken.
33:21 But there the Lord will be with us in majesty, in a place of broad rivers and streams; wherein shall go no galley with oars, neither shall gallant ship pass thereby.
33:22 For the Lord is our Judge, the Lord is our Lawgiver, the Lord is our King; He will save us.
33:23 Thy tacklings are loosed; they do not hold the stand of their mast, they do not spread the sail; then is the prey of a great spoil divided; the lame take the prey.
33:24 And the inhabitant shall not say: 'I am sick'; the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity.
