Isaiah 1:28-31

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 1

28 But wrongdoers and sinners together will be broken, And those who abandon the LORD will come to an end. 29 You certainly will be ashamed of the oaks which you have desired, And you will be embarrassed by the gardens which you have chosen. 30 For you will be like an oak whose leaf withers away, Or like a garden that has no water. 31 The strong man will become like flax fiber, And his work a spark. So they shall both burn together And there will be no one to extinguish them.
King James Version

Chapter 1

28 And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the LORD shall be consumed. 29 For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which ye have desired, and ye shall be confounded for the gardens that ye have chosen. 30 For ye shall be as an oak whose leaf fadeth, and as a garden that hath no water. 31 And the strong shall be as tow, and the maker of it as a spark, and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench them.
Christian Standard Bible

Chapter 1

28 At the same time both rebels and sinners will be broken, and those who abandon the Lord will perish. 29 Indeed, they will be ashamed of the sacred trees you desired, and you will be embarrassed because of the garden shrines you have chosen. 30 For you will become like an oak whose leaves are withered, and like a garden without water. 31 The strong one will become tinder, and his work a spark; both will burn together, with no one to extinguish the flames.
New Living Translation

Chapter 1

28 But rebels and sinners will be completely destroyed, and those who desert the LORD will be consumed.
29 You will be ashamed of your idol worship in groves of sacred oaks. You will blush because you worshiped in gardens dedicated to idols. 30 You will be like a great tree with withered leaves, like a garden without water. 31 The strongest among you will disappear like straw; their evil deeds will be the spark that sets it on fire. They and their evil works will burn up together, and no one will be able to put out the fire.
English Standard Version

Chapter 1

28 But rebels and sinners shall be broken together, and those who forsake the LORD shall be consumed. 29 For they shall be ashamed of the oaks that you desired; and you shall blush for the gardens that you have chosen. 30 For you shall be like an oak whose leaf withers, and like a garden without water. 31 And the strong shall become tinder, and his work a spark, and both of them shall burn together, with none to quench them.
New International Version

Chapter 1

28 But rebels and sinners will both be broken, and those who forsake the LORD will perish. 29 You will be ashamed because of the sacred oaks in which you have delighted; you will be disgraced because of the gardens that you have chosen. 30 You will be like an oak with fading leaves, like a garden without water. 31 The mighty man will become tinder and his work a spark; both will burn together, with no one to quench the fire.'
