A King Will Reign in Righteousness

Isaiah 32

1 Behold, a a king will reign in righteousness,
And princes will rule with justice.
2 A man will be as a hiding place from the wind,
And b a 1 cover from the tempest,
As rivers of water in a dry place,
As the shadow of a great rock in a weary land.
3 c The eyes of those who see will not be dim,
And the ears of those who hear will listen.
4 Also the heart of the 2 rash will d understand knowledge,
And the tongue of the stammerers will be ready to speak plainly.
5 The foolish person will no longer be called 3 generous,
Nor the miser said to be bountiful;
6 For the foolish person will speak foolishness,
And his heart will work e iniquity:
To practice ungodliness,
To utter error against the LORD,
To keep the hungry unsatisfied,
And he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.
7 Also the schemes of the schemer are evil;
He devises wicked plans
To destroy the poor with f lying words,
Even when the needy speaks justice.
8 But a 4 generous man devises generous things,
And by generosity he shall stand.
