Isaiah 24:1-6

The Lord’s Devastation of the Earth

See, the Lord is going to lay waste the earth

and devastate it;

he will ruin its face

and scatter its inhabitants—

it will be the same

for priest as for people,

for the master as for his servant,

for the mistress as for her servant,

for seller as for buyer,

for borrower as for lender,

for debtor as for creditor.

The earth will be completely laid waste

and totally plundered.

The Lord has spoken this word.

The earth dries up and withers,

the world languishes and withers,

the heavens languish with the earth.

The earth is defiled by its people;

they have disobeyed the laws,

violated the statutes

and broken the everlasting covenant.

Therefore a curse consumes the earth;

its people must bear their guilt.

Therefore earth’s inhabitants are burned up,

and very few are left.
