Zema - Their Own Sight

Song Lyrics

Biblical Reference

Woe to those who call evil good
- and good evil
Woe to those who put darkness for light
- and light for darkness
Woe to those who put bitter for sweet
- and sweet for bitter
Isaiah 5:20 - Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
- and prudent in their own sight
Isaiah 5:21 - Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
But they do not regard the work of the Lord
Nor consider the operation of His hand
Isaiah 5:12 - And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of the LORD, neither consider the operation of his hands.
Therefore as fire devours the stubble
So their root will be as rottenness
Because they have rejected the law of the Lord of Hosts
And despised the word of the Holy One of Israel
Isaiah 5:24 - Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
For all this His anger is not turned away Isaiah 5:25 - Therefore is the anger of the LORD kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.
He will lift up a banner to the nations from afar Isaiah 5:26 - And he will lift up an ensign to the nations from far, and will hiss unto them from the end of the earth: and, behold, they shall come with speed swiftly:
Therefore my people have gone into captivity
Because they have no knowledge
Their honorable men are famished
And their multitude dried up with thirst
Isaiah 5:13 - Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst.

Read all these verses in the context of Isaiah 5:12-26
