Isaiah 14:27-30

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 14

27 For the LORD of armies has planned, and who can frustrate it? And as for His stretched-out hand, who can turn it back?'
28 In the year that King Ahaz died, this pronouncement came:
29 'Do not rejoice, Philistia, all of you, Because the rod that struck you is broken; For from the serpent’s root a viper will come out, And its fruit will be a winged serpent. 30 Those who are most helpless will eat, And the poor will lie down in security; I will kill your root with famine, And it will kill your survivors.
King James Version

Chapter 14

27 For the LORD of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back? 28 In the year that king Ahaz died was this burden. 29 Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina, because the rod of him that smote thee is broken: for out of the serpent's root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent. 30 And the firstborn of the poor shall feed, and the needy shall lie down in safety: and I will kill thy root with famine, and he shall slay thy remnant.
Christian Standard Bible

Chapter 14

27 The Lord of Armies himself has planned it; therefore, who can stand in its way? It is his hand that is outstretched, so who can turn it back?
28 In the year that King Ahaz died, this pronouncement came:
29 Don't rejoice, all of you in Philistia, because the rod of the one who struck you is broken. For a viper will come from the root of a snake, and from its egg comes a flying serpent. 30 Then the firstborn of the poor will be well fed, and the impoverished will lie down in safety, but I will kill your root with hunger, and your remnant will be slain.
New Living Translation

Chapter 14

27 The LORD of Heaven's Armies has spoken--who can change his plans? When his hand is raised, who can stop him?'
28 This message came to me the year King Ahaz died:
29 Do not rejoice, you Philistines, that the rod that struck you is broken--that the king who attacked you is dead. For from that snake a more poisonous snake will be born, a fiery serpent to destroy you! 30 I will feed the poor in my pasture; the needy will lie down in peace. But as for you, I will wipe you out with famine and destroy the few who remain.
English Standard Version

Chapter 14

27 For the LORD of hosts has purposed, and who will annul it? His hand is stretched out, and who will turn it back? 28 In the year that King Ahaz died came this oracle:
29 Rejoice not, O Philistia, all of you, that the rod that struck you is broken, for from the serpent’s root will come forth an adder, and its fruit will be a flying fiery serpent. 30 And the firstborn of the poor will graze, and the needy lie down in safety; but I will kill your root with famine, and your remnant it will slay.
New International Version

Chapter 14

27 For the LORD Almighty has purposed, and who can thwart him? His hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back?
28 This prophecy came in the year King Ahaz died:
29 Do not rejoice, all you Philistines, that the rod that struck you is broken; from the root of that snake will spring up a viper, its fruit will be a darting, venomous serpent.
30 The poorest of the poor will find pasture, and the needy will lie down in safety. But your root I will destroy by famine; it will slay your survivors.
