“And the first borne of the poore shall feed, and the needy shall lie downe in safetie: and I will kill thy root with famine, and he shall slay thy remnant.”
King James Version (KJV)
27. For the Lord of hostes hath purposed, and who shall disanull it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turne it backe? 28. In the yeere that king Ahaz died, was this burden. 29. ¶ Reioyce not thou whole Palestina, because the rod of him that smote thee is broken: for out of the serpents roote shall come foorth a cockatrice, and his fruite shall be a fierie flying serpent. 30. And the first borne of the poore shall feed, and the needy shall lie downe in safetie: and I will kill thy root with famine, and he shall slay thy remnant. 31. Howle, O gate, crie, O citie, thou whole Palestina art dissolued, for there shal come from the North a smoke, and none shall bee alone in his appointed times. 32. What shall one then answere the messengers of the nation? that the Lord hath founded Zion, and the poore of his people shall trust in it.
