Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you for insight.
And What Do I Do With That?
15. This what the Lord, the Lord of Heaven's Armies, said to me: "Confront Shebna, the palace administrator, and give him this message:
16. "Who do you think you are, and what are you doing here, building a beautiful tomb for yourself — a monument high up in the rock?
17. For the LORD is about to hurl you away, mighty man. He is going to grab you,
18. crumple you into a ball, and toss you away into a distant, barren land. There you will die, and your glorious chariots will be broken and useless. You are a disgrace to your master!
19. "Yes, I will drive you out of office, " says the LORD. "I will pull you down from your high position.
20. And then I will call my servant Eliakim son of Hilkiah to replace you.
21. I will dress him in your royal robes and will give him your title and your authority. And He will be a father to the people of Jerusalem and Judah.
22. I will give him the key to the the house of David — the highest position in the royal court. When he opens doors, no one will be able to close them; when he closes doors, no one will be able to open them.
23. He will bring honor to his family name, for I will drive him firmly in place like a nail in the wall.
24. They will give him great responsibility, and he will bring honor to even the lowliest members of his family"
25. But the LORD of Heaven's Armies also says: "The time will come when I will pull out the nail that seemed so firm. It will come out and fall to the ground. Everything it supports will fall with it. I, the LORD, have spoken!"
Isaiah 22:15-25 NLT
