Go to Commentary on Isa 32
 

 1 Behold, a king will reign in righteousness,

 and rulers will govern with justice.

 

 2 Each one will be like a shelter from the wind

 and a refuge from the storm;

 like streams of water in a dry land,

 like the shade of a great rock in a weary land.

 

 3 The eyes of those who see will not be closed,

 and the ears of those who hear will listen.

 

 4 The mind of the rash will understand knowledge,

 and the tongue of the stammerers will hasten to speak clearly.

 

 5 The fool will no longer be called noble,

 nor the scoundrel be highly respected.

 

 6 For the fool will speak folly,

 and his heart will work iniquity,

 to practice profanity

 and to utter error against Yahweh,

 to make empty the soul of the hungry

 and to cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.

 

 7 The ways of the scoundrel are evil.

 He devises wicked devices to destroy the humble with lying words,

 even when the needy speaks right.

 

 8 But the noble devises noble things,

 and he will continue in noble things.

 

 
9 
Rise up, you women who are at ease!

 Hear my voice!

 You carefree daughters,

 give ear to my speech!

 

 10 For days beyond a year

 you will be troubled, you carefree women,

 for the vintage will fail.

 The harvest will not come.

 

 11 Tremble, you women who are at ease!

 Be troubled, you carefree ones!

 Strip yourselves, make yourselves naked

 and put sackcloth on your waist.

 

 12 Beat your breasts for the pleasant fields,

 for the fruitful vine.

 

 13 Thorns and briars

 will come up on my people’s land,

 yes, on all the houses of joy in the joyous city.

 

 14 For the palace will be forsaken.

 The populous city will be deserted.

 The hill and the watchtower will be for dens forever,

 a delight for wild donkeys,

 a pasture of flocks;

 

 15 until the spirit is poured on us from on high,

 and the wilderness becomes a fruitful field,

 and the fruitful field is considered a forest.

 

 16 Then justice will dwell in the wilderness

 and righteousness will remain in the fruitful field.

 

 17 The work of righteousness will be peace,

 and the effect of righteousness

 will be quietness and confidence forever.

 

 18 My people will live in a peaceful habitation,

 in safe dwellings and in quiet resting places.

 

 19 Though hail flattens the forest

 and the city is leveled completely.

 

 20 Blessed are you who sow

 beside all waters,

 who send out the feet of the ox and the donkey.
