The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons

Isaiah 10:1-7, 13-16

1 "Woe unto them that decree unrighteous decrees,
and that write grievousness which they have prescribed
2 to turn aside the needy from judgment and to take away the right from the poor of My people,
that widows may be their prey, and that they may rob the fatherless!
3 And what will ye do in the day of visitation,
and in the desolation which shall come from far?
To whom will ye flee for help?
And where will ye leave your glory?
4 Without Me they shall bow down under the prisoners,
and they shall fall under the slain."

For all this His anger is not turned away,
but His hand is stretched out still.

5 "Woe to the Assyrian, the rod of Mine anger, 
and the staff in their hand is Mine indignation! 
6 I will send him against a hypocritical nation, 
and against the people of My wrath will I give him a charge, 
to take the spoil and to take the prey, 
and to tread them down like the mire of the streets. 
7 Yet he meaneth not so, neither doth his heart think so; 
but it is in his heart to destroy and cut off nations not a few.

13 For he saith,

"'By the strength of my hand I have done it,
and by my wisdom, for I am prudent;
and I have removed the bounds of the people and have robbed their treasures,
and I have put down the inhabitants like a valiant man.
14 And my hand hath found as a nest the riches of the people, and as one gathereth eggs that are left, have I gathered all the earth;
and there was none that moved the wing, or opened the mouth, or peeped.'"

15 Shall the ax boast itself against him that heweth therewith?
Or shall the saw magnify itself against him that shaketh it?
As if the rod should shake itself against them that lift it up,
or as if the staff should lift up itself, as if it were no wood!
16 Therefore shall the Lord, the Lord of hosts, send among His fat ones leanness;
and under His glory He shall kindle a burning like the burning of a fire.

Psalm 94

1 O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongeth--
O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, show Thyself.
2 Lift up Thyself, Thou judge of the earth;
render to the proud their due reward.

3 LORD, how long shall the wicked--how long shall the wicked triumph?
4 How long shall they utter and speak hard things, and all the workers of iniquity boast?
5 They break in pieces Thy people, O LORD,
and afflict Thine heritage.
6 They slay the widow and the stranger,
and murder the fatherless.
7 Yet they say, "The LORD shall not see,
neither shall the God of Jacob regard it."

8 Understand, ye brutish among the people;
and ye fools, when will ye be wise?
9 He that planted the ear, shall He not hear?
He that formed the eye, shall He not see?
10 He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not He correct?
He that teacheth man knowledge, shall not He know?
11 The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man,
that they are vanity.

12 Blessed is the man whom Thou chastenest, O LORD,
and teachest him out of Thy law,
13 that Thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity,
until the pit be dug for the wicked.
14 For the LORD will not cast off His people,
neither will He forsake His inheritance.
15 But judgment shall return unto righteousness,
and all the upright in heart shall follow it.

16 Who will rise up for me against the evildoers?
Or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?
17 Unless the LORD had been my help,
my soul had almost dwelt in silence.
18 When I said, "My foot slippeth,"
Thy mercy, O LORD, held me up.
19 In the multitude of my thoughts within me,
Thy comforts delight my soul.
20 Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with Thee,
which frameth mischief by a law?
21 They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous,
and condemn the innocent blood.
22 But the LORD is my defense,
and my God is the rock of my refuge.
23 And He shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness;
yea, the LORD our God shall cut them off!
