Isaiah 30:12-14 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

12 Therefore thus saith the Holy one of Israel, Because you have cast off this word, and trust in [a]violence, and wickedness, and stay thereupon,

13 Therefore this iniquity shall be unto you as a breach that falleth, or a swelling in an high wall, whose breaking cometh suddenly in a moment.

14 And the breaking thereof is like the breaking of a potter’s pot, which is broken without pity, and in the breaking thereof is not found [b]a shard to take fire out of the hearth, or to take water out of the pit.


  1. Isaiah 30:12 Meaning, in their stubbornness against God and the admonitions of his Prophets.
  2. Isaiah 30:14 Signifying, that the destruction of the wicked shall be without recovery.

Isaiah 30:12-14 New International Version (NIV)

12 Therefore this is what the Holy One of Israel says:

“Because you have rejected this message,
    relied on oppression
    and depended on deceit,
13 this sin will become for you
    like a high wall, cracked and bulging,
    that collapses suddenly, in an instant.
14 It will break in pieces like pottery,
    shattered so mercilessly
that among its pieces not a fragment will be found
    for taking coals from a hearth
    or scooping water out of a cistern.”
