Isaiah 65:13

Context

65:13 So this is what the sovereign Lord says:

“Look, my servants will eat, but you will be hungry!

Look, my servants will drink, but you will be thirsty!

Look, my servants will rejoice, but you will be humiliated!

Isaiah 65:21-23

they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit.

65:22 No longer will they build a house only to have another live in it, 1

for my people will live as long as trees, 3 

and my chosen ones will enjoy to the fullest what they have produced. 4

or give birth to children that will experience disaster. 5 

For the Lord will bless their children
