Isaiah 9:13-15

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 9

13 Yet the people do not turn back to Him who struck them, Nor do they seek the LORD of armies. 14 So the LORD cuts off head and tail from Israel, Both palm branch and bulrush in a single day. 15 The head is the elder and esteemed man, And the prophet who teaches falsehood is the tail.
King James Version

Chapter 9

13 For the people turneth not unto him that smiteth them, neither do they seek the LORD of hosts. 14 Therefore the LORD will cut off from Israel head and tail, branch and rush, in one day. 15 The ancient and honourable, he is the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail.
Christian Standard Bible

Chapter 9

13 The people did not turn to him who struck them; they did not seek the Lord of Armies. 14 So the Lord cut off Israel's head and tail, palm branch and reed in a single day. 15 The head is the elder, the honored one; the tail is the prophet, the one teaching lies.
New Living Translation

Chapter 9

13 For after all this punishment, the people will still not repent. They will not seek the LORD of Heaven's Armies. 14 Therefore, in a single day the LORD will destroy both the head and the tail, the noble palm branch and the lowly reed. 15 The leaders of Israel are the head, and the lying prophets are the tail.
English Standard Version

13 But the people have not returned to him who struck them, nor have they sought the LORD Almighty. 14 So the LORD will cut off from Israel both head and tail, both palm branch and reed in a single day; 15 the elders and dignitaries are the head, the prophets who teach lies are the tail.
