Psalm 94

1  Lord God to whom vengeance belongs, 
   O God to whom vengeance belongs, shine out in majesty.
2  Rise up, O Judge of the earth; 
   give the arrogant their just deserts.
3  Lord, how long shall the wicked, 
   how long shall the wicked triumph?
4  How long shall the evildoers boast 
   and pour out such impudent words?
5  They crush your people, O Lord, 
   and afflict your heritage.
6  They murder the widow and the stranger; 
   the orphans they put to death.
7  And yet they say, ‘The Lord will not see, 
   neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.’
8  Consider, most stupid of people; 
   you fools, when will you understand?
9  He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? 
   He that formed the eye, shall he not see?
10  He who corrects the nations, shall he not punish? 
   He who teaches the peoples, does he lack knowledge?
11  The Lord knows every human thought, 
   that they are but a breath.
12  Blessed are those whom you chasten, O Lord, 
   whom you instruct from your law;
13  That you may give them rest in days of adversity, 
   until a pit is dug for the wicked.
14  For the Lord will not fail his people, 
   neither will he forsake his inheritance.
15  For justice shall return to the righteous, 
   and all that are true of heart shall follow it.
16  Who will rise up for me against the wicked? 
   Who will take my part against the evildoers?
17  If the Lord had not helped me, 
   my soul would soon have been put to silence.
18  And when I said, ‘My foot has slipped’, 
   your loving mercy, O Lord, upheld me.
19  In the multitude of cares that troubled my heart, 
   your comforts have refreshed my soul.
20  Will you have anything to do with the throne of wickedness, 
   which fashions evil through its law?
21  They gather together against the life of the righteous 
   and condemn the innocent to death.
22  But the Lord has become my stronghold 
   and my God the rock of my trust.
23  He will turn against them their own wickedness
      and silence them through their own malice; 
   the Lord our God will put them to silence.

Isaiah 8: 1-15

Isaiah’s Son a Sign of the Assyrian Invasion

8Then the Lord said to me, Take a large tablet and write on it in common characters, ‘Belonging to Maher-shalal-hash-baz’,* 2and have it attested* for me by reliable witnesses, the priest Uriah and Zechariah son of Jeberechiah. 3And I went to the prophetess, and she conceived and bore a son. Then the Lord said to me, Name him Maher-shalal-hash-baz; 4for before the child knows how to call ‘My father’ or ‘My mother’, the wealth of Damascus and the spoil of Samaria will be carried away by the king of Assyria.

5 The Lord spoke to me again: 6Because this people has refused the waters of Shiloah that flow gently, and melt in fear before* Rezin and the son of Remaliah; 7therefore, the Lord is bringing up against it the mighty flood waters of the River, the king of Assyria and all his glory; it will rise above all its channels and overflow all its banks; 8it will sweep on into Judah as a flood, and, pouring over, it will reach up to the neck; and its outspread wings will fill the breadth of your land, O Immanuel.


9 Band together, you peoples, and be dismayed;
   listen, all you far countries;
gird yourselves and be dismayed;
   gird yourselves and be dismayed!
10 Take counsel together, but it shall be brought to naught;
   speak a word, but it will not stand,
   for God is with us.*

11 For the Lord spoke thus to me while his hand was strong upon me, and warned me not to walk in the way of this people, saying: 12Do not call conspiracy all that this people calls conspiracy, and do not fear what it fears, or be in dread. 13But the Lord of hosts, him you shall regard as holy; let him be your fear, and let him be your dread. 14He will become a sanctuary, a stone one strikes against; for both houses of Israel he will become a rock one stumbles over—a trap and a snare for the inhabitants of Jerusalem. 15And many among them shall stumble; they shall fall and be broken; they shall be snared and taken.
