Isaiah 32
King James Bible: Purple Letter EditionERP 
Christ the coming righteous King

1Behold, a King shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in justice {judgment}. 2And a man shall be like {as} an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; like {as} rivers of water in a dry place, like {as} the shadow of a great rock in a weary land. 3And the eyes of them who see shall not be dim, and the ears of them who hear shall hearken. 4The heart also of the rash shall understand knowledge, and the tongue of the stammerers shall be ready to speak plainly. 5The vile person shall be no more called noble {liberal}, nor the churl said to be bountiful. 6For the vile person will speak villainy, and his heart will work iniquity, to practice hypocrisy, and to utter error against the LORD, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail. 7The instruments also of the churl are evil; he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaketh right. 8But the noble {liberal} deviseth noble {liberal} things; and by noble {liberal} things shall he stand.

9Rise up, ye women who are at ease; hear my voice, ye careless daughters; give ear unto my speech. 10Many days and years shall ye be troubled, ye careless women; for the vintage shall fail, the gathering shall not come. 11Tremble, ye women who are at ease; be troubled, ye careless ones; strip you, and make you bare, and gird sackcloth upon your loins. 12They shall smite upon the breasts {lament for the teats}, for the pleasant fields, for the fruitful vine. 13Upon the land of My people shall come up thorns and briers; yea, upon all the houses of joy in the joyous city, 14Because the palaces shall be forsaken, the multitude of the city shall be left, the forts and towers shall be for dens forever, a joy of wild asses, a pasture of flocks, 15Until the Spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted as {for} a forest. 16Then justice {judgment} shall dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness remain in the fruitful field. 17And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever. 18And My people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places, 19When it shall hail, coming down on the forest; and the city shall be low in a low place. 20Blessed are ye that sow beside all waters, that send forth there {thither} the feet of the ox and the ass.
