Isaiah 49

Listen
<08085> (8798)_,
O isles
<0339>_,
unto me; and hearken
<07181> (8685)_,
ye people
<03816>_,
from far
<07350>_;
The LORD
<03068>
hath called
<07121> (8804)
me from the womb
<0990>_;
from the bowels
<04578>
of my mother
<0517>
hath he made mention
<02142> (8689)
of my name
<08034>_.
And he hath made
<07760> (8799)
my mouth
<06310>
like a sharp
<02299>
sword
<02719>_;
in the shadow
<06738>
of his hand
<03027>
hath he hid
<02244> (8689)
me, and made
<07760> (8799)
me a polished
<01305> (8803)
shaft
<02671>_;
in his quiver
<0827>
hath he hid
<05641> (8689)
me;
And said
<0559> (8799)
unto me, Thou [art] my servant
<05650>_,
O Israel
<03478>_,
in whom I will be glorified
<06286> (8691)_.
Then I said
<0559> (8804)_,
I have laboured
<03021> (8804)
in vain
<07385>_,
I have spent
<03615> (8765)
my strength
<03581>
for nought
<08414>_,
and in vain
<01892>_:
[yet] surely
<0403>
my judgment
<04941>
[is] with the LORD
<03068>_,
and my work
<06468>
with my God
<0430>_.
{my work: or, my reward}
And now, saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
that formed
<03335> (8802)
me from the womb
<0990>
[to be] his servant
<05650>_,
to bring
<07725> (0)
Jacob
<03290>
again
<07725> (8788)
to him, Though Israel
<03478>
be not gathered
<0622> (8735)_,
yet shall I be glorious
<03513> (8735)
in the eyes
<05869>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and my God
<0430>
shall be my strength
<05797>_.
{Though...: or, That Israel may be gathered to him, and I may, etc}
And he said
<0559> (8799)_,
It is a light thing
<07043> (8738)
that thou shouldest be my servant
<05650>
to raise up
<06965> (8687)
the tribes
<07626>
of Jacob
<03290>_,
and to restore
<07725> (8687)
the preserved
<05341> (8803) (8675) <05336>
of Israel
<03478>_:
I will also give
<05414> (8804)
thee for a light
<0216>
to the Gentiles
<01471>_,
that thou mayest be my salvation
<03444>
unto the end
<07097>
of the earth
<0776>_.
{It is...: or, Art thou lighter than that thou shouldest, etc} {preserved: or, desolations}
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
the Redeemer
<01350> (8802)
of Israel
<03478>_,
[and] his Holy One
<06918>_,
to him whom man
<05315>
despiseth
<0960>_,
to him whom the nation
<01471>
abhorreth
<08581> (8764)_,
to a servant
<05650>
of rulers
<04910> (8802)_,
Kings
<04428>
shall see
<07200> (8799)
and arise
<06965> (8804)_,
princes
<08269>
also shall worship
<07812> (8691)_,
because of the LORD
<03068>
that is faithful
<0539> (8737)_,
[and] the Holy One
<06918>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and he shall choose
<0977> (8799)
thee. {whom man...: or, that is despised in soul}
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
In an acceptable
<07522>
time
<06256>
have I heard
<06030> (8804)
thee, and in a day
<03117>
of salvation
<03444>
have I helped
<05826> (8804)
thee: and I will preserve
<05341> (8799)
thee, and give
<05414> (8799)
thee for a covenant
<01285>
of the people
<05971>_,
to establish
<06965> (8687)
the earth
<0776>_,
to cause to inherit
<05157> (8687)
the desolate
<08074> (8802)
heritages
<05159>_;
{establish: or, raise up}
That thou mayest say
<0559> (8800)
to the prisoners
<0631> (8803)_,
Go forth
<03318> (8798)_;
to them that [are] in darkness
<02822>_,
Shew
<01540> (8734)
yourselves. They shall feed
<07462> (8799)
in the ways
<01870>_,
and their pastures
<04830>
[shall be] in all high places
<08205>_.
They shall not hunger
<07456> (8799)
nor thirst
<06770> (8799)_;
neither shall the heat
<08273>
nor sun
<08121>
smite
<05221> (8686)
them: for he that hath mercy
<07355> (8764)
on them shall lead
<05090> (8762)
them, even by the springs
<04002>
of water
<04325>
shall he guide
<05095> (8762)
them.
And I will make
<07760> (8804)
all my mountains
<02022>
a way
<01870>_,
and my highways
<04546>
shall be exalted
<07311> (8799)_.
Behold, these shall come
<0935> (8799)
from far
<07350>_:
and, lo, these from the north
<06828>
and from the west
<03220>_;
and these from the land
<0776>
of Sinim
<05515>_.
Sing
<07442> (8798)_,
O heavens
<08064>_;
and be joyful
<01523> (8798)_,
O earth
<0776>_;
and break forth
<06476> (8798)
into singing
<07440>_,
O mountains
<02022>_:
for the LORD
<03068>
hath comforted
<05162> (8765)
his people
<05971>_,
and will have mercy
<07355> (8762)
upon his afflicted
<06041>_.
But Zion
<06726>
said
<0559> (8799)_,
The LORD
<03068>
hath forsaken
<05800> (8804)
me, and my Lord
<0136>
hath forgotten
<07911> (8804)
me.
Can a woman
<0802>
forget
<07911> (8799)
her sucking child
<05764>_,
that she should not have compassion
<07355> (8763)
on the son
<01121>
of her womb
<0990>_?
yea, they may forget
<07911> (8799)_,
yet will I not forget
<07911> (8799)
thee. {that...: Heb. from having compassion}
Behold, I have graven
<02710> (8804)
thee upon the palms of [my] hands
<03709>_;
thy walls
<02346>
[are] continually
<08548>
before me.
Thy children
<01121>
shall make haste
<04116> (8765)_;
thy destroyers
<02040> (8764)
and they that made thee waste
<02717> (8688)
shall go forth
<03318> (8799)
of thee.
Lift up
<05375> (8798)
thine eyes
<05869>
round about
<05439>_,
and behold
<07200> (8798)_:
all these gather themselves together
<06908> (8738)_,
[and] come
<0935> (8804)
to thee. [As] I live
<02416>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_,
thou shalt surely clothe
<03847> (8799)
thee with them all, as with an ornament
<05716>_,
and bind
<07194> (8762)
them [on thee], as a bride
<03618>
[doeth].
For thy waste
<02723>
and thy desolate places
<08074> (8802)_,
and the land
<0776>
of thy destruction
<02035>_,
shall even now be too narrow
<03334> (8799)
by reason of the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)_,
and they that swallowed thee up
<01104> (8764)
shall be far away
<07368> (8804)_.
The children
<01121>
which thou shalt have, after thou hast lost
<07923>
the other, shall say
<0559> (8799)
again in thine ears
<0241>_,
The place
<04725>
[is] too strait
<06862>
for me: give
<05066> (8798)
place
<04725>
to me that I may dwell
<03427> (8799)_.
Then shalt thou say
<0559> (8804)
in thine heart
<03824>_,
Who hath begotten
<03205> (8804)
me these, seeing I have lost my children
<07921> (8803)_,
and am desolate
<01565>_,
a captive
<01540> (8802)_,
and removing to and fro
<05493> (8803)_?
and who hath brought up
<01431> (8765)
these? Behold, I was left
<07604> (8738)
alone; these, where
<0375>
[had] they [been]?
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_,
Behold, I will lift up
<05375> (8799)
mine hand
<03027>
to the Gentiles
<01471>_,
and set up
<07311> (8686)
my standard
<05251>
to the people
<05971>_:
and they shall bring
<0935> (8689)
thy sons
<01121>
in [their] arms
<02684>_,
and thy daughters
<01323>
shall be carried
<05375> (8735)
upon [their] shoulders
<03802>_.
{arms: Heb. bosom}
And kings
<04428>
shall be thy nursing fathers
<0539> (8802)_,
and their queens
<08282>
thy nursing mothers
<03243> (8688)_:
they shall bow down
<07812> (8691)
to thee with [their] face
<0639>
toward the earth
<0776>_,
and lick up
<03897> (8762)
the dust
<06083>
of thy feet
<07272>_;
and thou shalt know
<03045> (8804)
that I [am] the LORD
<03068>_:
for they shall not be ashamed
<0954> (8799)
that wait
<06960> (8802)
for me. {nursing fathers: Heb. nourishers} {queens: Heb. princesses}
Shall the prey
<04455>
be taken
<03947> (8714)
from the mighty
<01368>_,
or the lawful
<06662>
captive
<07628>
delivered
<04422> (8735)_?
{lawful...: Heb. captivity of the just}
But thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
Even the captives
<07628>
of the mighty
<01368>
shall be taken away
<03947> (8714)_,
and the prey
<04455>
of the terrible
<06184>
shall be delivered
<04422> (8735)_:
for I will contend
<07378> (8799)
with him that contendeth
<03401>
with thee, and I will save
<03467> (8686)
thy children
<01121>_.
{captives: Heb. captivity}
And I will feed
<0398> (8689)
them that oppress
<03238> (8688)
thee with their own flesh
<01320>_;
and they shall be drunken
<07937> (8799)
with their own blood
<01818>_,
as with sweet wine
<06071>_:
and all flesh
<01320>
shall know
<03045> (8804)
that I the LORD
<03068>
[am] thy Saviour
<03467> (8688)
and thy Redeemer
<01350> (8802)_,
the mighty One
<046>
of Jacob
<03290>_.
{sweet: or, new}
