Restoring Zion

BibleInPoems, Ron Calugar, 2015-2023 . . 174
Isaiah 15:1-35:10

The enemies of Judah, they all shall be brought down.
Moab, Syria, Egypt, Tyre, and Sidon are cast to the ground.

The Lord will make the earth empty. It will languish and fade away.
It will reel like a drunken man who cannot find his way.

Then death will be swallowed in victory. God will wipe away all tears.
That day in Judah will be a new song, that has never graced our ears.

You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you.
Because he trusteth in the Lord, for he knows what God can do.

Then salvation shall come from Judah. In Zion, the foundation stone.
A precious corner, and he that believes, shall never stand alone.

But for now this people draws near with their mouth and honors me with their lips.
They've removed their hearts far from me. They've forgotten my precepts.

Woe unto the rebellious children who take council but not of me.
Woe to them who trust weapons of men, instead of God's army.

Come near, all nations and listen. For armies will God dispose.
Till Judah is brought from the desert, that blossoms like a rose.

The eyes of the blind shall be opened. The ears of the deaf will hear.
The lame shall leap. The dumb shall sing, and Zion will no more fear.
