Isaiah 40:1--66:24

Comfort
<05162> (8761)
ye, comfort
<05162> (8761)
ye my people
<05971>_,
saith
<0559> (8799)
your God
<0430>_.
Speak
<01696> (8761)
ye comfortably
<03820>
to Jerusalem
<03389>_,
and cry
<07121> (8798)
unto her, that her warfare
<06635>
is accomplished
<04390> (8804)_,
that her iniquity
<05771>
is pardoned
<07521> (8738)_:
for she hath received
<03947> (8804)
of the LORD'S
<03068>
hand
<03027>
double
<03718>
for all her sins
<02403>_.
{comfortably: Heb. to the heart} {warfare: or, appointed time}
The voice
<06963>
of him that crieth
<07121> (8802)
in the wilderness
<04057>_,
Prepare
<06437> (8761)
ye the way
<01870>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
make straight
<03474> (8761)
in the desert
<06160>
a highway
<04546>
for our God
<0430>_.
Every valley
<01516>
shall be exalted
<05375> (8735)_,
and every mountain
<02022>
and hill
<01389>
shall be made low
<08213> (8799)_:
and the crooked
<06121>
shall be made straight
<04334>_,
and the rough places
<07406>
plain
<01237>_:
{straight: or, a straight place} {plain: or, a plain place}
And the glory
<03519>
of the LORD
<03068>
shall be revealed
<01540> (8738)_,
and all flesh
<01320>
shall see
<07200> (8804)
[it] together
<03162>_:
for the mouth
<06310>
of the LORD
<03068>
hath spoken
<01696> (8765)
[it].
The voice
<06963>
said
<0559> (8802)_,
Cry
<07121> (8798)_.
And he said
<0559> (8804)_,
What shall I cry
<07121> (8799)_?
All flesh
<01320>
[is] grass
<02682>_,
and all the goodliness
<02617>
thereof [is] as the flower
<06731>
of the field
<07704>_:
The grass
<02682>
withereth
<03001> (8804)_,
the flower
<06731>
fadeth
<05034> (8804)_:
because the spirit
<07307>
of the LORD
<03068>
bloweth
<05380> (8804)
upon it: surely
<0403>
the people
<05971>
[is] grass
<02682>_.
The grass
<02682>
withereth
<03001> (8804)_,
the flower
<06731>
fadeth
<05034> (8804)_:
but the word
<01697>
of our God
<0430>
shall stand
<06965> (8799)
for ever
<05769>_.
O Zion
<06726>_,
that bringest good tidings
<01319> (8764)_,
get thee up
<05927> (8798)
into the high
<01364>
mountain
<02022>_;
O Jerusalem
<03389>_,
that bringest good tidings
<01319> (8764)_,
lift up
<07311> (8685)
thy voice
<06963>
with strength
<03581>_;
lift [it] up
<07311> (8685)_,
be not afraid
<03372> (8799)_;
say
<0559> (8798)
unto the cities
<05892>
of Judah
<03063>_,
Behold your God
<0430>_!
{O Zion...: or, O thou that tellest good tidings to Zion} {O Jerusalem...: or, O thou that tellest good tidings to Jerusalem}
Behold, the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>
will come
<0935> (8799)
with strong
<02389>
[hand], and his arm
<02220>
shall rule
<04910> (8802)
for him: behold, his reward
<07939>
[is] with him, and his work
<06468>
before
<06440>
him. {with strong...: or, against the strong} {his work: or, recompence for his work}
He shall feed
<07462> (8799)
his flock
<05739>
like a shepherd
<07462> (8802)_:
he shall gather
<06908> (8762)
the lambs
<02922>
with his arm
<02220>_,
and carry
<05375> (8799)
[them] in his bosom
<02436>_,
[and] shall gently lead
<05095> (8762)
those that are with young
<05763> (8802)_.
{that...: or, that give suck}
Who hath measured
<04058> (8804)
the waters
<04325>
in the hollow of his hand
<08168>_,
and meted out
<08505> (8765)
heaven
<08064>
with the span
<02239>_,
and comprehended
<03557> (8804)
the dust
<06083>
of the earth
<0776>
in a measure
<07991>_,
and weighed
<08254> (8804)
the mountains
<02022>
in scales
<06425>_,
and the hills
<01389>
in a balance
<03976>_?
{a measure: Heb. a tierce}
Who hath directed
<08505> (8765)
the Spirit
<07307>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
or [being] his counsellor
<0376> <06098>
hath taught
<03045> (8686)
him? {his...: Heb. man of his counsel}
With whom took he counsel
<03289> (8738)_,
and [who] instructed
<0995> (8799)
him, and taught
<03925> (8762)
him in the path
<0734>
of judgment
<04941>_,
and taught
<03925> (8762)
him knowledge
<01847>_,
and shewed
<03045> (8686)
to him the way
<01870>
of understanding
<08394>_?
{instructed...: Heb. made him understand} {understanding: Heb. understandings?}
Behold, the nations
<01471>
[are] as a drop
<04752>
of a bucket
<01805>_,
and are counted
<02803> (8738)
as the small dust
<07834>
of the balance
<03976>_:
behold, he taketh up
<05190> (8799)
the isles
<0339>
as a very little thing
<01851>_.
And Lebanon
<03844>
[is] not
<0369>
sufficient
<01767>
to burn
<01197> (8763)_,
nor the beasts
<02416>
thereof sufficient
<01767>
for a burnt offering
<05930>_.
All nations
<01471>
before him [are] as nothing; and they are counted
<02803> (8738)
to him less than nothing
<0657>_,
and vanity
<08414>_.
To whom then will ye liken
<01819> (8762)
God
<0410>_?
or what likeness
<01823>
will ye compare
<06186> (8799)
unto him?
The workman
<02796>
melteth
<05258> (8804)
a graven image
<06459>_,
and the goldsmith
<06884> (8802)
spreadeth
<07554> (8762)
it over with gold
<02091>_,
and casteth
<06884> (8802)
silver
<03701>
chains
<07577>_.
He that [is] so impoverished
<05533> (8794) (8676) <05534> (8765)
that he hath no oblation
<08641>
chooseth
<0977> (8799)
a tree
<06086>
[that] will not rot
<07537> (8799)_;
he seeketh
<01245> (8762)
unto him a cunning
<02450>
workman
<02796>
to prepare
<03559> (8687)
a graven image
<06459>_,
[that] shall not be moved
<04131> (8735)_.
{is so...: Heb. is poor of oblation}
Have ye not known
<03045> (8799)_?
have ye not heard
<08085> (8799)_?
hath it not been told
<05046> (8717)
you from the beginning
<07218>_?
have ye not understood
<0995> (8689)
from the foundations
<04146>
of the earth
<0776>_?
[It is] he that sitteth
<03427> (8802)
upon the circle
<02329>
of the earth
<0776>_,
and the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
thereof [are] as grasshoppers
<02284>_;
that stretcheth out
<05186> (8802)
the heavens
<08064>
as a curtain
<01852>_,
and spreadeth them out
<04969> (8799)
as a tent
<0168>
to dwell in
<03427> (8800)_:
{It is...: or, Him that}
That bringeth
<05414> (8802)
the princes
<07336> (8802)
to nothing; he maketh
<06213> (8804)
the judges
<08199> (8802)
of the earth
<0776>
as vanity
<08414>_.
Yea, they shall not be planted
<05193> (8738)_;
yea, they shall not be sown
<02232> (8795)_:
yea, their stock
<01503>
shall not take root
<08327> (8782)
in the earth
<0776>_:
and he shall also blow
<05398> (8804)
upon them, and they shall wither
<03001> (8799)_,
and the whirlwind
<05591>
shall take
<05375> (8799)
them away as stubble
<07179>_.
To whom then will ye liken
<01819> (8762)
me, or shall I be equal
<07737> (8799)_?
saith
<0559> (8799)
the Holy One
<06918>_.
Lift up
<05375> (8798)
your eyes
<05869>
on high
<04791>_,
and behold
<07200> (8798)
who hath created
<01254> (8804)
these [things], that bringeth out
<03318> (8688)
their host
<06635>
by number
<04557>_:
he calleth
<07121> (8799)
them all by names
<08034>
by the greatness
<07230>
of his might
<0202>_,
for that [he is] strong
<0533>
in power
<03581>_;
not one
<0376>
faileth
<05737> (8738)_.
Why sayest
<0559> (8799)
thou, O Jacob
<03290>_,
and speakest
<01696> (8762)_,
O Israel
<03478>_,
My way
<01870>
is hid
<05641> (8738)
from the LORD
<03068>_,
and my judgment
<04941>
is passed over
<05674> (8799)
from my God
<0430>_?
Hast thou not known
<03045> (8804)_?
hast thou not heard
<08085> (8804)_,
[that] the everlasting
<05769>
God
<0430>_,
the LORD
<03068>_,
the Creator
<01254> (8802)
of the ends
<07098>
of the earth
<0776>_,
fainteth
<03286> (8799)
not, neither is weary
<03021> (8799)_?
[there is] no searching
<02714>
of his understanding
<08394>_.
He giveth
<05414> (8802)
power
<03581>
to the faint
<03287>_;
and to [them that have] no might
<0202>
he increaseth
<07235> (8686)
strength
<06109>_.
Even the youths
<05288>
shall faint
<03286> (8799)
and be weary
<03021> (8799)_,
and the young men
<0970>
shall utterly
<03782> (8800)
fall
<03782> (8735)_:
But they that wait
<06960> (8802)
upon the LORD
<03068>
shall renew
<02498> (8686)
[their] strength
<03581>_;
they shall mount up
<05927> (8799)
with wings
<083>
as eagles
<05404>_;
they shall run
<07323> (8799)_,
and not be weary
<03021> (8799)_;
[and] they shall walk
<03212> (8799)_,
and not faint
<03286> (8799)_.
{renew: Heb. change}
Keep silence
<02790> (8685)
before me, O islands
<0339>_;
and let the people
<03816>
renew
<02498> (8686)
[their] strength
<03581>_:
let them come near
<05066> (8799)_;
then let them speak
<01696> (8762)_:
let us come near
<07126> (8799)
together
<03162>
to judgment
<04941>_.
Who raised up
<05782> (8689)
the righteous
<06664>
[man] from the east
<04217>_,
called
<07121> (8799)
him to his foot
<07272>_,
gave
<05414> (8799)
the nations
<01471>
before
<06440>
him, and made [him] rule
<07287> (8686)
over kings
<04428>_?
he gave
<05414> (8799)
[them] as the dust
<06083>
to his sword
<02719>_,
[and] as driven
<05086> (8737)
stubble
<07179>
to his bow
<07198>_.
{the righteous...: Heb. righteousness}
He pursued
<07291> (8799)
them, [and] passed
<05674> (8799)
safely
<07965>_;
[even] by the way
<0734>
[that] he had not gone
<0935> (8799)
with his feet
<07272>_.
{safely: Heb. in peace}
Who hath wrought
<06466> (8804)
and done
<06213> (8804)
[it], calling
<07121> (8802)
the generations
<01755>
from the beginning
<07218>_?
I the LORD
<03068>_,
the first
<07223>_,
and with the last
<0314>_;
I [am] he.
The isles
<0339>
saw
<07200> (8804)
[it], and feared
<03372> (8799)_;
the ends
<07098>
of the earth
<0776>
were afraid
<02729> (8799)_,
drew near
<07126> (8804)_,
and came
<0857> (8799)_.
They helped
<05826> (8799)
every one
<0376>
his neighbour
<07453>_;
and [every one] said
<0559> (8799)
to his brother
<0251>_,
Be of good courage
<02388> (8798)_.
{Be...: Heb. Be strong}
So the carpenter
<02796>
encouraged
<02388> (8762)
the goldsmith
<06884> (8802)_,
[and] he that smootheth
<02505> (8688)
[with] the hammer
<06360>
him that smote
<01986> (8802)
the anvil
<06471>_,
saying
<0559> (8802)_,
It [is] ready
<02896>
for the sodering
<01694>_:
and he fastened
<02388> (8762)
it with nails
<04548>_,
[that] it should not be moved
<04131> (8735)_.
{goldsmith: or, founder} {him...: or, the smiting} {saying...: or, saying of the soder, It is good}
But thou, Israel
<03478>_,
[art] my servant
<05650>_,
Jacob
<03290>
whom I have chosen
<0977> (8804)_,
the seed
<02233>
of Abraham
<085>
my friend
<0157> (8802)_.
[Thou] whom I have taken
<02388> (8689)
from the ends
<07098>
of the earth
<0776>_,
and called
<07121> (8804)
thee from the chief men
<0678>
thereof, and said
<0559> (8799)
unto thee, Thou [art] my servant
<05650>_;
I have chosen
<0977> (8804)
thee, and not cast thee away
<03988> (8804)_.
Fear
<03372> (8799)
thou not; for I [am] with thee: be not dismayed
<08159> (8691)_;
for I [am] thy God
<0430>_:
I will strengthen
<0553> (8765)
thee; yea, I will help
<05826> (8804)
thee; yea, I will uphold
<08551> (8804)
thee with the right hand
<03225>
of my righteousness
<06664>_.
Behold, all they that were incensed
<02734> (8737)
against thee shall be ashamed
<0954> (8799)
and confounded
<03637> (8735)_:
they shall be as nothing; and they
<0582>
that strive
<07379>
with thee shall perish
<06> (8799)_.
{they that strive...: Heb. the men of thy strife}
Thou shalt seek
<01245> (8762)
them, and shalt not find
<04672> (8799)
them, [even] them
<0582>
that contended
<04695>
with thee: they that war
<04421>
against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought
<0657>_.
{them that...: Heb. the men of thy contention} {they...: Heb. the men of thy war}
For I the LORD
<03068>
thy God
<0430>
will hold
<02388> (8688)
thy right hand
<03225>_,
saying
<0559> (8802)
unto thee, Fear
<03372> (8799)
not; I will help
<05826> (8804)
thee.
Fear
<03372> (8799)
not, thou worm
<08438>
Jacob
<03290>_,
[and] ye men
<04962>
of Israel
<03478>_;
I will help
<05826> (8804)
thee, saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_,
and thy redeemer
<01350> (8802)_,
the Holy One
<06918>
of Israel
<03478>_.
{men: or, few men}
Behold, I will make
<07760> (8804)
thee a new
<02319>
sharp
<02742>
threshing
<04173>
instrument having
<01167>
teeth
<06374>_:
thou shalt thresh
<01758> (8799)
the mountains
<02022>_,
and beat [them] small
<01854> (8799)_,
and shalt make
<07760> (8799)
the hills
<01389>
as chaff
<04671>_.
{teeth: Heb. mouths}
Thou shalt fan
<02219> (8799)
them, and the wind
<07307>
shall carry them away
<05375> (8799)_,
and the whirlwind
<05591>
shall scatter
<06327> (8686)
them: and thou shalt rejoice
<01523> (8799)
in the LORD
<03068>_,
[and] shalt glory
<01984> (8691)
in the Holy One
<06918>
of Israel
<03478>_.
[When] the poor
<06041>
and needy
<034>
seek
<01245> (8764)
water
<04325>_,
and [there is] none, [and] their tongue
<03956>
faileth
<05405> (8804)
for thirst
<06772>_,
I the LORD
<03068>
will hear
<06030> (8799)
them, I the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>
will not forsake
<05800> (8799)
them.
I will open
<06605> (8799)
rivers
<05104>
in high places
<08205>_,
and fountains
<04599>
in the midst
<08432>
of the valleys
<01237>_:
I will make
<07760> (8799)
the wilderness
<04057>
a pool
<098>
of water
<04325>_,
and the dry
<06723>
land
<0776>
springs
<04161>
of water
<04325>_.
I will plant
<05414> (8799)
in the wilderness
<04057>
the cedar
<0730>_,
the shittah tree
<07848>_,
and the myrtle
<01918>_,
and the oil
<08081>
tree
<06086>_;
I will set
<07760> (8799)
in the desert
<06160>
the fir tree
<01265>_,
[and] the pine
<08410>_,
and the box tree
<08391>
together
<03162>_:
That they may see
<07200> (8799)_,
and know
<03045> (8799)_,
and consider
<07760> (8799)_,
and understand
<07919> (8686)
together
<03162>_,
that the hand
<03027>
of the LORD
<03068>
hath done
<06213> (8804)
this, and the Holy One
<06918>
of Israel
<03478>
hath created
<01254> (8804)
it.
Produce
<07126> (8761)
your cause
<07379>_,
saith
<0559> (8799)
the LORD
<03068>_;
bring forth
<05066> (8685)
your strong
<06110>
[reasons], saith
<0559> (8799)
the King
<04428>
of Jacob
<03290>_.
{Produce: Heb. Cause to come near}
Let them bring [them] forth
<05066> (8686)_,
and shew
<05046> (8686)
us what shall happen
<07136> (8799)_:
let them shew
<05046> (8685)
the former things
<07223>_,
what they [be], that we may consider
<07760> (8799) <03820>
them, and know
<03045> (8799)
the latter end
<0319>
of them; or declare
<08085> (8685)
us things for to come
<0935> (8802)_.
{consider...: Heb. set our heart upon them}
Shew
<05046> (8685)
the things that are to come
<0857> (8802)
hereafter
<0268>_,
that we may know
<03045> (8799)
that ye [are] gods
<0430>_:
yea, do good
<03190> (8686)_,
or do evil
<07489> (8686)_,
that we may be dismayed
<08159> (8691)_,
and behold
<07200> (8799)
[it] together
<03162>_.
Behold, ye [are] of nothing
<0369>_,
and your work
<06467>
of nought
<0659>_:
an abomination
<08441>
[is he that] chooseth
<0977> (8799)
you. {of nothing: or, worse than nothing} {of nought: or, worse than of a viper}
I have raised up
<05782> (8689)
[one] from the north
<06828>_,
and he shall come
<0857> (8799)_:
from the rising
<04217>
of the sun
<08121>
shall he call
<07121> (8799)
upon my name
<08034>_:
and he shall come
<0935> (8799)
upon princes
<05461>
as [upon] morter
<02563>_,
and as the potter
<03335> (8802)
treadeth
<07429> (8799)
clay
<02916>_.
Who hath declared
<05046> (8689)
from the beginning
<07218>_,
that we may know
<03045> (8799)_?
and beforetime
<06440>_,
that we may say
<0559> (8799)_,
[He is] righteous
<06662>_?
yea, [there is] none that sheweth
<05046> (8688)_,
yea, [there is] none that declareth
<08085> (8688)_,
yea, [there is] none that heareth
<08085> (8802)
your words
<0561>_.
The first
<07223>
[shall say] to Zion
<06726>_,
Behold
<02009>_,
behold
<02009>
them: and I will give
<05414> (8799)
to Jerusalem
<03389>
one that bringeth good tidings
<01319> (8764)_.
For I beheld
<07200> (8799)_,
and [there was] no man
<0376>_;
even among them, and [there was] no counsellor
<03289> (8802)_,
that, when I asked
<07592> (8799)
of them, could answer
<07725> (8686)
a word
<01697>_.
{answer: Heb. return}
Behold, they [are] all vanity
<0205>_;
their works
<04639>
[are] nothing
<0657>_:
their molten images
<05262>
[are] wind
<07307>
and confusion
<08414>_.
Behold my servant
<05650>_,
whom I uphold
<08551> (8799)_;
mine elect
<0972>_,
[in whom] my soul
<05315>
delighteth
<07521> (8804)_;
I have put
<05414> (8804)
my spirit
<07307>
upon him: he shall bring forth
<03318> (8686)
judgment
<04941>
to the Gentiles
<01471>_.
He shall not cry
<06817> (8799)_,
nor lift up
<05375> (8799)_,
nor cause his voice
<06963>
to be heard
<08085> (8686)
in the street
<02351>_.
A bruised
<07533> (8803)
reed
<07070>
shall he not break
<07665> (8799)_,
and the smoking
<03544>
flax
<06594>
shall he not quench
<03518> (8762)_:
he shall bring forth
<03318> (8686)
judgment
<04941>
unto truth
<0571>_.
{smoking: or, dimly burning} {quench: Heb. quench it}
He shall not fail
<03543> (8799)
nor be discouraged
<07533> (8799)_,
till he have set
<07760> (8799)
judgment
<04941>
in the earth
<0776>_:
and the isles
<0339>
shall wait
<03176> (8762)
for his law
<08451>_.
{discouraged: Heb. broken}
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
God
<0410>
the LORD
<03068>_,
he that created
<01254> (8802)
the heavens
<08064>_,
and stretched them out
<05186> (8802)_;
he that spread forth
<07554> (8802)
the earth
<0776>_,
and that which cometh out
<06631>
of it; he that giveth
<05414> (8802)
breath
<05397>
unto the people
<05971>
upon it, and spirit
<07307>
to them that walk
<01980> (8802)
therein:
I the LORD
<03068>
have called
<07121> (8804)
thee in righteousness
<06664>_,
and will hold
<02388> (8686)
thine hand
<03027>_,
and will keep
<05341> (8799)
thee, and give
<05414> (8799)
thee for a covenant
<01285>
of the people
<05971>_,
for a light
<0216>
of the Gentiles
<01471>_;
To open
<06491> (8800)
the blind
<05787>
eyes
<05869>_,
to bring out
<03318> (8687)
the prisoners
<0616>
from the prison
<04525>_,
[and] them that sit
<03427> (8802)
in darkness
<02822>
out of the prison
<03608>
house
<01004>_.
I [am] the LORD
<03068>_:
that [is] my name
<08034>_:
and my glory
<03519>
will I not give
<05414> (8799)
to another
<0312>_,
neither my praise
<08416>
to graven images
<06456>_.
Behold, the former things
<07223>
are come to pass
<0935> (8804)_,
and new things
<02319>
do I declare
<05046> (8688)_:
before they spring forth
<06779> (8799)
I tell
<08085> (8686)
you of them.
Sing
<07891> (8798)
unto the LORD
<03068>
a new
<02319>
song
<07892>_,
[and] his praise
<08416>
from the end
<07097>
of the earth
<0776>_,
ye that go down
<03381> (8802)
to the sea
<03220>_,
and all that is therein
<04393>_;
the isles
<0339>_,
and the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
thereof. {all...: Heb. the fulness thereof}
Let the wilderness
<04057>
and the cities
<05892>
thereof lift up
<05375> (8799)
[their voice], the villages
<02691>
[that] Kedar
<06938>
doth inhabit
<03427> (8799)_:
let the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of the rock
<05553>
sing
<07442> (8799)_,
let them shout
<06681> (8799)
from the top
<07218>
of the mountains
<02022>_.
Let them give
<07760> (8799)
glory
<03519>
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
and declare
<05046> (8686)
his praise
<08416>
in the islands
<0339>_.
The LORD
<03068>
shall go forth
<03318> (8799)
as a mighty man
<01368>_,
he shall stir up
<05782> (8686)
jealousy
<07068>
like a man
<0376>
of war
<04421>_:
he shall cry
<07321> (8686)_,
yea, roar
<06873> (8686)_;
he shall prevail
<01396> (8691)
against his enemies
<0341> (8802)_.
{prevail: or, behave himself mightily}
I have long time
<05769>
holden my peace
<02814> (8689)_;
I have been still
<02790> (8686)_,
[and] refrained
<0662> (8691)
myself: [now] will I cry
<06463> (8799)
like a travailing woman
<03205> (8802)_;
I will destroy
<05395> (8799) (8676) <08074> (8799)
and devour
<07602> (8799)
at once
<03162>_.
{devour: Heb. swallow, or, sup up}
I will make waste
<02717> (8686)
mountains
<02022>
and hills
<01389>_,
and dry up
<03001> (8686)
all their herbs
<06212>_;
and I will make
<07760> (8804)
the rivers
<05104>
islands
<0339>_,
and I will dry up
<03001> (8686)
the pools
<098>_.
And I will bring
<03212> (8689)
the blind
<05787>
by a way
<01870>
[that] they knew
<03045> (8804)
not; I will lead
<01869> (8686)
them in paths
<05410>
[that] they have not known
<03045> (8804)_:
I will make
<07760> (8799)
darkness
<04285>
light
<0216>
before
<06440>
them, and crooked things
<04625>
straight
<04334>_.
These things
<01697>
will I do
<06213> (8804)
unto them, and not forsake
<05800> (8804)
them. {straight: Heb. into straightness}
They shall be turned
<05472> (8738)
back
<0268>_,
they shall be greatly
<01322>
ashamed
<0954> (8799)_,
that trust
<0982> (8802)
in graven images
<06459>_,
that say
<0559> (8802)
to the molten images
<04541>_,
Ye [are] our gods
<0430>_.
Hear
<08085> (8798)_,
ye deaf
<02795>_;
and look
<05027> (8685)_,
ye blind
<05787>_,
that ye may see
<07200> (8800)_.
Who [is] blind
<05787>_,
but my servant
<05650>_?
or deaf
<02795>_,
as my messenger
<04397>
[that] I sent
<07971> (8799)_?
who [is] blind
<05787>
as [he that is] perfect
<07999> (8794)_,
and blind
<05787>
as the LORD'S
<03068>
servant
<05650>_?
Seeing
<07200> (8800) (8675) <07200> (8804)
many things
<07227>_,
but thou observest
<08104> (8799)
not; opening
<06491> (8800)
the ears
<0241>_,
but he heareth
<08085> (8799)
not.
The LORD
<03068>
is well pleased
<02654> (8804)
for his righteousness
<06664>_'
sake; he will magnify
<01431> (8686)
the law
<08451>_,
and make [it] honourable
<0142> (8686)_.
{it: or, him}
But this [is] a people
<05971>
robbed
<0962> (8803)
and spoiled
<08154> (8803)_;
[they are] all of them snared
<06351> (8687)
in holes
<02352> (8676) <0970>_,
and they are hid
<02244> (8717)
in prison
<03608>
houses
<01004>_:
they are for a prey
<0957>_,
and none delivereth
<05337> (8688)_;
for a spoil
<04933>_,
and none saith
<0559> (8802)_,
Restore
<07725> (8685)_.
{they are all...: or, in snaring all the young men of them} {for a spoil: Heb. a treading}
Who among you will give ear
<0238> (8686)
to this? [who] will hearken
<07181> (8686)
and hear
<08085> (8799)
for the time to come
<0268>_?
{for...: Heb. for the after time?}
Who gave
<05414> (8804)
Jacob
<03290>
for a spoil
<04933> (8675) <04882>_,
and Israel
<03478>
to the robbers
<0962> (8802)_?
did not the LORD
<03068>_,
he against whom
<02098>
we have sinned
<02398> (8804)_?
for they would
<014> (8804)
not walk
<01980> (8800)
in his ways
<01870>_,
neither were they obedient
<08085> (8804)
unto his law
<08451>_.
Therefore he hath poured
<08210> (8799)
upon him the fury
<02534>
of his anger
<0639>_,
and the strength
<05807>
of battle
<04421>_:
and it hath set him on fire
<03857> (8762)
round about
<05439>_,
yet he knew
<03045> (8804)
not; and it burned
<01197> (8799)
him, yet he laid
<07760> (8799)
[it] not to heart
<03820>_.
But now thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
that created
<01254> (8802)
thee, O Jacob
<03290>_,
and he that formed
<03335> (8802)
thee, O Israel
<03478>_,
Fear
<03372> (8799)
not: for I have redeemed
<01350> (8804)
thee, I have called
<07121> (8804)
[thee] by thy name
<08034>_;
thou [art] mine.
When thou passest through
<05674> (8799)
the waters
<04325>_,
I [will be] with thee; and through the rivers
<05104>_,
they shall not overflow
<07857> (8799)
thee: when thou walkest
<03212> (8799)
through
<01119>
the fire
<0784>_,
thou shalt not be burned
<03554> (8735)_;
neither shall the flame
<03852>
kindle
<01197> (8799)
upon thee.
For I [am] the LORD
<03068>
thy God
<0430>_,
the Holy One
<06918>
of Israel
<03478>_,
thy Saviour
<03467> (8688)_:
I gave
<05414> (8804)
Egypt
<04714>
[for] thy ransom
<03724>_,
Ethiopia
<03568>
and Seba
<05434>
for thee.
Since thou wast precious
<03365> (8804)
in my sight
<05869>_,
thou hast been honourable
<03513> (8738)_,
and I have loved
<0157> (8804)
thee: therefore will I give
<05414> (8799)
men
<0120>
for thee, and people
<03816>
for thy life
<05315>_.
{life: or, person}
Fear
<03372> (8799)
not: for I [am] with thee: I will bring
<0935> (8686)
thy seed
<02233>
from the east
<04217>_,
and gather
<06908> (8762)
thee from the west
<04628>_;
I will say
<0559> (8799)
to the north
<06828>_,
Give up
<05414> (8798)_;
and to the south
<08486>_,
Keep not back
<03607> (8799)_:
bring
<0935> (8685)
my sons
<01121>
from far
<07350>_,
and my daughters
<01323>
from the ends
<07097>
of the earth
<0776>_;
[Even] every one
<03605>
that is called
<07121> (8737)
by my name
<08034>_:
for I have created
<01254> (8804)
him for my glory
<03519>_,
I have formed
<03335> (8804)
him; yea, I have made
<06213> (8804)
him.
Bring forth
<03318> (8685)
the blind
<05787>
people
<05971>
that have
<03426>
eyes
<05869>_,
and the deaf
<02795>
that have ears
<0241>_.
Let all the nations
<01471>
be gathered
<06908> (8738)
together
<03162>_,
and let the people
<03816>
be assembled
<0622> (8735)_:
who among them can declare
<05046> (8686)
this, and shew
<08085> (8686)
us former things
<07223>_?
let them bring forth
<05414> (8799)
their witnesses
<05707>_,
that they may be justified
<06663> (8799)_:
or let them hear
<08085> (8799)_,
and say
<0559> (8799)_,
[It is] truth
<0571>_.
Ye [are] my witnesses
<05707>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_,
and my servant
<05650>
whom I have chosen
<0977> (8804)_:
that ye may know
<03045> (8799)
and believe
<0539> (8686)
me, and understand
<0995> (8799)
that I [am] he: before
<06440>
me there was no God
<0410>
formed
<03335> (8738)_,
neither shall there be after
<0310>
me. {no...: or, nothing formed of God}
I, [even] I, [am] the LORD
<03068>_;
and beside
<01107>
me [there is] no saviour
<03467> (8688)_.
I have declared
<05046> (8689)_,
and have saved
<03467> (8689)_,
and I have shewed
<08085> (8689)_,
when [there was] no strange
<02114> (8801)
[god] among you: therefore ye [are] my witnesses
<05707>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_,
that I [am] God
<0410>_.
Yea, before the day
<03117>
[was] I [am] he; and [there is] none that can deliver
<05337> (8688)
out of my hand
<03027>_:
I will work
<06466> (8799)_,
and who shall let
<07725> (8686)
it? {let it: Heb. turn it back?}
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
your redeemer
<01350> (8802)_,
the Holy One
<06918>
of Israel
<03478>_;
For your sake I have sent
<07971> (8765)
to Babylon
<0894>_,
and have brought down
<03381> (8689)
all their nobles
<01281>_,
and the Chaldeans
<03778>_,
whose cry
<07440>
[is] in the ships
<0591>_.
{nobles: Heb. bars}
I [am] the LORD
<03068>_,
your Holy One
<06918>_,
the creator
<01254> (8802)
of Israel
<03478>_,
your King
<04428>_.
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
which maketh
<05414> (8802)
a way
<01870>
in the sea
<03220>_,
and a path
<05410>
in the mighty
<05794>
waters
<04325>_;
Which bringeth forth
<03318> (8688)
the chariot
<07393>
and horse
<05483>_,
the army
<02428>
and the power
<05808>_;
they shall lie down
<07901> (8799)
together
<03162>_,
they shall not rise
<06965> (8799)_:
they are extinct
<01846> (8804)_,
they are quenched
<03518> (8804)
as tow
<06594>_.
Remember
<02142> (8799)
ye not the former things
<07223>_,
neither consider
<0995> (8709)
the things of old
<06931>_.
Behold, I will do
<06213> (8802)
a new thing
<02319>_;
now it shall spring forth
<06779> (8799)_;
shall ye not know
<03045> (8799)
it? I will even make
<07760> (8799)
a way
<01870>
in the wilderness
<04057>_,
[and] rivers
<05104>
in the desert
<03452>_.
The beast
<02416>
of the field
<07704>
shall honour
<03513> (8762)
me, the dragons
<08577>
and the owls
<01323> <03284>_:
because I give
<05414> (8804)
waters
<04325>
in the wilderness
<04057>_,
[and] rivers
<05104>
in the desert
<03452>_,
to give drink
<08248> (8687)
to my people
<05971>_,
my chosen
<0972>_.
{owls: or, ostriches: Heb. daughters of the owl}
This
<02098>
people
<05971>
have I formed
<03335> (8804)
for myself; they shall shew forth
<05608> (8762)
my praise
<08416>_.
But thou hast not called
<07121> (8804)
upon me, O Jacob
<03290>_;
but thou hast been weary
<03021> (8804)
of me, O Israel
<03478>_.
Thou hast not brought
<0935> (8689)
me the small cattle
<07716>
of thy burnt offerings
<05930>_;
neither hast thou honoured
<03513> (8765)
me with thy sacrifices
<02077>_.
I have not caused thee to serve
<05647> (8689)
with an offering
<04503>_,
nor wearied
<03021> (8689)
thee with incense
<03828>_.
{small...: Heb. lambs, or, kids}
Thou hast bought
<07069> (8804)
me no sweet cane
<07070>
with money
<03701>_,
neither hast thou filled
<07301> (8689)
me with the fat
<02459>
of thy sacrifices
<02077>_:
but thou hast made me to serve
<05647> (8689)
with thy sins
<02403>_,
thou hast wearied
<03021> (8689)
me with thine iniquities
<05771>_.
{filled...: Heb. made me drunk, or, abundantly moistened}
I, [even] I, [am] he that blotteth out
<04229> (8802)
thy transgressions
<06588>
for mine own sake, and will not remember
<02142> (8799)
thy sins
<02403>_.
Put me in remembrance
<02142> (8685)_:
let us plead
<08199> (8735)
together
<03162>_:
declare
<05608> (8761)
thou, that thou mayest be justified
<06663> (8799)_.
Thy first
<07223>
father
<01>
hath sinned
<02398> (8804)_,
and thy teachers
<03887> (8688)
have transgressed
<06586> (8804)
against me. {teachers: Heb. interpreters}
Therefore I have profaned
<02490> (8762)
the princes
<08269>
of the sanctuary
<06944>_,
and have given
<05414> (8799)
Jacob
<03290>
to the curse
<02764>_,
and Israel
<03478>
to reproaches
<01421>_.
{princes...: or, holy princes}
Yet now hear
<08085> (8798)_,
O Jacob
<03290>
my servant
<05650>_;
and Israel
<03478>_,
whom I have chosen
<0977> (8804)_:
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
that made
<06213> (8802)
thee, and formed
<03335> (8802)
thee from the womb
<0990>_,
[which] will help
<05826> (8799)
thee; Fear
<03372> (8799)
not, O Jacob
<03290>_,
my servant
<05650>_;
and thou, Jesurun
<03484>_,
whom I have chosen
<0977> (8804)_.
For I will pour
<03332> (8799)
water
<04325>
upon him that is thirsty
<06771>_,
and floods
<05140> (8802)
upon the dry ground
<03004>_:
I will pour
<03332> (8799)
my spirit
<07307>
upon thy seed
<02233>_,
and my blessing
<01293>
upon thine offspring
<06631>_:
And they shall spring up
<06779> (8804)
[as] among
<0996>
the grass
<02682>_,
as willows
<06155>
by the water
<04325>
courses
<02988>_.
One shall say
<0559> (8799)_,
I [am] the LORD'S
<03068>_;
and another shall call
<07121> (8799)
[himself] by the name
<08034>
of Jacob
<03290>_;
and another shall subscribe
<03789> (8799)
[with] his hand
<03027>
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
and surname
<03655> (8762)
[himself] by the name
<08034>
of Israel
<03478>_.
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
the King
<04428>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and his redeemer
<01350> (8802)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_;
I [am] the first
<07223>_,
and I [am] the last
<0314>_;
and beside
<01107>
me [there is] no God
<0430>_.
And who, as I, shall call
<07121> (8799)_,
and shall declare
<05046> (8686)
it, and set it in order
<06186> (8799)
for me, since I appointed
<07760> (8800)
the ancient
<05769>
people
<05971>_?
and the things that are coming
<0857> (8802)_,
and shall come
<0935> (8799)_,
let them shew
<05046> (8686)
unto them.
Fear
<06342> (8799)
ye not, neither be afraid
<07297> (8799) (8676) <07297> (8804)_:
have not I told
<08085> (8689)
thee from that time
<0227>_,
and have declared
<05046> (8689)
[it]? ye [are] even my witnesses
<05707>_.
Is there
<03426>
a God
<0433>
beside
<01107>
me? yea, [there is] no God
<06697>_;
I know
<03045> (8804)
not [any]. {God; I: Heb. rock, etc}
They that make
<03335> (8802)
a graven image
<06459>
[are] all of them vanity
<08414>_;
and their delectable things
<02530> (8803)
shall not profit
<03276> (8686)_;
and they [are] their own witnesses
<05707>_;
they see
<07200> (8799)
not, nor know
<03045> (8799)_;
that they may be ashamed
<0954> (8799)_.
{delectable: Heb. desirable}
Who hath formed
<03335> (8804)
a god
<0410>_,
or molten
<05258> (8804)
a graven image
<06459>
[that] is profitable
<03276> (8687)
for nothing
<01115>_?
Behold, all his fellows
<02270>
shall be ashamed
<0954> (8799)_:
and the workmen
<02796>_,
they [are] of men
<0120>_:
let them all be gathered together
<06908> (8691)_,
let them stand up
<05975> (8799)_;
[yet] they shall fear
<06342> (8799)_,
[and] they shall be ashamed
<0954> (8799)
together
<03162>_.
The smith
<01270> <02796>
with the tongs
<04621>
both worketh
<06466> (8804)
in the coals
<06352>_,
and fashioneth
<03335> (8799)
it with hammers
<04717>_,
and worketh
<06466> (8799)
it with the strength
<03581>
of his arms
<02220>_:
yea, he is hungry
<07457>_,
and his strength
<03581>
faileth
<0369>_:
he drinketh
<08354> (8804)
no water
<04325>_,
and is faint
<03286> (8799)_.
{with the tongs: or, with an axe}
The carpenter
<02796> <06086>
stretcheth out
<05186> (8804)
[his] rule
<06957>_;
he marketh it out
<08388> (8762)
with a line
<08279>_;
he fitteth
<06213> (8799)
it with planes
<04741>_,
and he marketh it out
<08388> (8762)
with the compass
<04230>_,
and maketh
<06213> (8799)
it after the figure
<08403>
of a man
<0376>_,
according to the beauty
<08597>
of a man
<0120>_;
that it may remain
<03427> (8800)
in the house
<01004>_.
He heweth him down
<03772> (8800)
cedars
<0730>_,
and taketh
<03947> (8799)
the cypress
<08645>
and the oak
<0437>_,
which he strengtheneth
<0553> (8762)
for himself among the trees
<06086>
of the forest
<03293>_:
he planteth
<05193> (8804)
an ash
<0766>_,
and the rain
<01653>
doth nourish
<01431> (8762)
[it]. {strengtheneth: or, taketh courage}
Then shall it be for a man
<0120>
to burn
<01197> (8763)_:
for he will take
<03947> (8799)
thereof, and warm
<02552> (8799)
himself; yea, he kindleth
<05400> (8686)
[it], and baketh
<0644> (8804)
bread
<03899>_;
yea, he maketh
<06466> (8799)
a god
<0410>_,
and worshippeth
<07812> (8691)
[it]; he maketh
<06213> (8804)
it a graven image
<06459>_,
and falleth down
<05456> (8799)
thereto.
He burneth
<08313> (8804)
part
<02677>
thereof in
<01119>
the fire
<0784>_;
with part
<02677>
thereof he eateth
<0398> (8799)
flesh
<01320>_;
he roasteth
<06740> (8799)
roast
<06748>_,
and is satisfied
<07646> (8799)_:
yea, he warmeth
<02552> (8799)
[himself], and saith
<0559> (8799)_,
Aha
<01889>_,
I am warm
<02552> (8804)_,
I have seen
<07200> (8804)
the fire
<0217>_:
And the residue
<07611>
thereof he maketh
<06213> (8804)
a god
<0410>_,
[even] his graven image
<06459>_:
he falleth down
<05456> (8799)
unto it, and worshippeth
<07812> (8691)
[it], and prayeth
<06419> (8691)
unto it, and saith
<0559> (8799)_,
Deliver
<05337> (8685)
me; for thou [art] my god
<0410>_.
They have not known
<03045> (8804)
nor understood
<0995> (8799)_:
for he hath shut
<02902> (8804)
their eyes
<05869>_,
that they cannot see
<07200> (8800)_;
[and] their hearts
<03826>_,
that they cannot understand
<07919> (8687)_.
{shut: Heb. daubed}
And none considereth
<07725> (8686)
in his heart
<03820>_,
neither [is there] knowledge
<01847>
nor understanding
<08394>
to say
<0559> (8800)_,
I have burned
<08313> (8804)
part
<02677>
of it in
<01119>
the fire
<0784>_;
yea, also I have baked
<0644> (8804)
bread
<03899>
upon the coals
<01513>
thereof; I have roasted
<06740> (8799)
flesh
<01320>_,
and eaten
<0398> (8799)
[it]: and shall I make
<06213> (8799)
the residue
<03499>
thereof an abomination
<08441>_?
shall I fall down
<05456> (8799)
to the stock
<0944>
of a tree
<06086>_?
{considereth...: Heb. setteth to his heart} {the stock...: Heb. that which comes of a tree?}
He feedeth
<07462> (8802)
on ashes
<0665>_:
a deceived
<02048> (8795)
heart
<03820>
hath turned him aside
<05186> (8689)_,
that he cannot deliver
<05337> (8686)
his soul
<05315>_,
nor say
<0559> (8799)_,
[Is there] not a lie
<08267>
in my right hand
<03225>_?
Remember
<02142> (8798)
these, O Jacob
<03290>
and Israel
<03478>_;
for thou [art] my servant
<05650>_:
I have formed
<03335> (8804)
thee; thou [art] my servant
<05650>_:
O Israel
<03478>_,
thou shalt not be forgotten
<05382> (8735)
of me.
I have blotted out
<04229> (8804)_,
as a thick cloud
<05645>_,
thy transgressions
<06588>_,
and, as a cloud
<06051>_,
thy sins
<02403>_:
return
<07725> (8798)
unto me; for I have redeemed
<01350> (8804)
thee.
Sing
<07442> (8798)_,
O ye heavens
<08064>_;
for the LORD
<03068>
hath done
<06213> (8804)
[it]: shout
<07321> (8685)_,
ye lower parts
<08482>
of the earth
<0776>_:
break forth
<06476> (8798)
into singing
<07440>_,
ye mountains
<02022>_,
O forest
<03293>_,
and every tree
<06086>
therein: for the LORD
<03068>
hath redeemed
<01350> (8804)
Jacob
<03290>_,
and glorified
<06286> (8691)
himself in Israel
<03478>_.
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
thy redeemer
<01350> (8802)_,
and he that formed
<03335> (8802)
thee from the womb
<0990>_,
I [am] the LORD
<03068>
that maketh
<06213> (8802)
all [things]; that stretcheth forth
<05186> (8802)
the heavens
<08064>
alone; that spreadeth abroad
<07554> (8802)
the earth
<0776>
by myself;
That frustrateth
<06565> (8688)
the tokens
<0226>
of the liars
<0907>_,
and maketh diviners
<07080> (8802)
mad
<01984> (8779)_;
that turneth
<07725> (8688)
wise
<02450>
[men] backward
<0268>_,
and maketh their knowledge
<01847>
foolish
<05528> (8762)_;
That confirmeth
<06965> (8688)
the word
<01697>
of his servant
<05650>_,
and performeth
<07999> (8686)
the counsel
<06098>
of his messengers
<04397>_;
that saith
<0559> (8802)
to Jerusalem
<03389>_,
Thou shalt be inhabited
<03427> (8714)_;
and to the cities
<05892>
of Judah
<03063>_,
Ye shall be built
<01129> (8735)_,
and I will raise up
<06965> (8787)
the decayed places
<02723>
thereof: {decayed...: Heb. wastes}
That saith
<0559> (8802)
to the deep
<06683>_,
Be dry
<02717> (8798)_,
and I will dry up
<03001> (8686)
thy rivers
<05104>_:
That saith
<0559> (8802)
of Cyrus
<03566>_,
[He is] my shepherd
<07462> (8802)_,
and shall perform
<07999> (8686)
all my pleasure
<02656>_:
even saying
<0559> (8800)
to Jerusalem
<03389>_,
Thou shalt be built
<01129> (8735)_;
and to the temple
<01964>_,
Thy foundation shall be laid
<03245> (8735)_.
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
to his anointed
<04899>_,
to Cyrus
<03566>_,
whose right hand
<03225>
I have holden
<02388> (8689)_,
to subdue
<07286> (8800)
nations
<01471>
before
<06440>
him; and I will loose
<06605> (8762)
the loins
<04975>
of kings
<04428>_,
to open
<06605> (8800)
before
<06440>
him the two leaved gates
<01817>_;
and the gates
<08179>
shall not be shut
<05462> (8735)_;
{have...: or, strengthened}
I will go
<03212> (8799)
before
<06440>
thee, and make
<03474> (0)
the crooked places
<01921> (8803)
straight
<03474> (8762) (8675) <03474> (8686)_:
I will break in pieces
<07665> (8762)
the gates
<01817>
of brass
<05154>_,
and cut in sunder
<01438> (8762)
the bars
<01280>
of iron
<01270>_:
And I will give
<05414> (8804)
thee the treasures
<0214>
of darkness
<02822>_,
and hidden riches
<04301>
of secret places
<04565>_,
that thou mayest know
<03045> (8799)
that I, the LORD
<03068>_,
which call
<07121> (8802)
[thee] by thy name
<08034>_,
[am] the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_.
For Jacob
<03290>
my servant's
<05650>
sake, and Israel
<03478>
mine elect
<0972>_,
I have even called
<07121> (8799)
thee by thy name
<08034>_:
I have surnamed
<03655> (8762)
thee, though thou hast not known
<03045> (8804)
me.
I [am] the LORD
<03068>_,
and [there is] none else, [there is] no God
<0430>
beside
<02108>
me: I girded
<0247> (8762)
thee, though thou hast not known
<03045> (8804)
me:
That they may know
<03045> (8799)
from the rising
<04217>
of the sun
<08121>_,
and from the west
<04628>_,
that [there is] none
<0657>
beside
<01107>
me. I [am] the LORD
<03068>_,
and [there is] none else.
I form
<03335> (8802)
the light
<0216>_,
and create
<01254> (8802)
darkness
<02822>_:
I make
<06213> (8802)
peace
<07965>_,
and create
<01254> (8802)
evil
<07451>_:
I the LORD
<03068>
do
<06213> (8802)
all these [things].
Drop down
<07491> (8685)_,
ye heavens
<08064>_,
from above
<04605>_,
and let the skies
<07834>
pour down
<05140> (8799)
righteousness
<06664>_:
let the earth
<0776>
open
<06605> (8799)_,
and let them bring forth
<06509> (8799)
salvation
<03468>_,
and let righteousness
<06666>
spring up
<06779> (8686)
together
<03162>_;
I the LORD
<03068>
have created
<01254> (8804)
it.
Woe
<01945>
unto him that striveth
<07378> (8801)
with his Maker
<03335> (8802)_!
[Let] the potsherd
<02789>
[strive] with the potsherds
<02789>
of the earth
<0127>_.
Shall the clay
<02563>
say
<0559> (8799)
to him that fashioneth
<03335> (8802)
it, What makest
<06213> (8799)
thou? or thy work
<06467>_,
He hath no hands
<03027>_?
Woe
<01945>
unto him that saith
<0559> (8802)
unto [his] father
<01>_,
What begettest
<03205> (8686)
thou? or to the woman
<0802>_,
What hast thou brought forth
<02342> (8799)_?
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
the Holy One
<06918>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and his Maker
<03335> (8802)_,
Ask
<07592> (8798)
me of things to come
<0857> (8802)
concerning my sons
<01121>_,
and concerning the work
<06467>
of my hands
<03027>
command
<06680> (8762)
ye me.
I have made
<06213> (8804)
the earth
<0776>_,
and created
<01254> (8804)
man
<0120>
upon it: I, [even] my hands
<03027>_,
have stretched out
<05186> (8804)
the heavens
<08064>_,
and all their host
<06635>
have I commanded
<06680> (8765)_.
I have raised him up
<05782> (8689)
in righteousness
<06664>_,
and I will direct
<03474> (8762)
all his ways
<01870>_:
he shall build
<01129> (8799)
my city
<05892>_,
and he shall let go
<07971> (8762)
my captives
<01546>_,
not for price
<04242>
nor reward
<07810>_,
saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_.
{direct: or, make straight}
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
The labour
<03018>
of Egypt
<04714>_,
and merchandise
<05505>
of Ethiopia
<03568>
and of the Sabeans
<05436>_,
men
<0582>
of stature
<04060>_,
shall come over
<05674> (8799)
unto thee, and they shall be thine: they shall come
<03212> (8799)
after
<0310>
thee; in chains
<02131>
they shall come over
<05674> (8799)_,
and they shall fall down
<07812> (8691)
unto thee, they shall make supplication
<06419> (8691)
unto thee, [saying], Surely God
<0410>
[is] in thee; and [there is] none else, [there is] no
<0657>
God
<0430>_.
Verily
<0403>
thou [art] a God
<0410>
that hidest
<05641> (8693)
thyself, O God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_,
the Saviour
<03467> (8688)_.
They shall be ashamed
<0954> (8804)_,
and also confounded
<03637> (8738)_,
all of them: they shall go
<01980> (8804)
to confusion
<03639>
together
<03162>
[that are] makers
<02796>
of idols
<06736>_.
[But] Israel
<03478>
shall be saved
<03467> (8738)
in the LORD
<03068>
with an everlasting
<05769>
salvation
<08668>_:
ye shall not be ashamed
<0954> (8799)
nor confounded
<03637> (8735)
world
<05769>
without end
<05703>_.
For thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
that created
<01254> (8802)
the heavens
<08064>_;
God
<0430>
himself that formed
<03335> (8802)
the earth
<0776>
and made
<06213> (8802)
it; he hath established
<03559> (8790)
it, he created
<01254> (8804)
it not in vain
<08414>_,
he formed
<03335> (8804)
it to be inhabited
<03427> (8800)_:
I [am] the LORD
<03068>_;
and [there is] none else.
I have not spoken
<01696> (8765)
in secret
<05643>_,
in a dark
<02822>
place
<04725>
of the earth
<0776>_:
I said
<0559> (8804)
not unto the seed
<02233>
of Jacob
<03290>_,
Seek
<01245> (8761)
ye me in vain
<08414>_:
I the LORD
<03068>
speak
<01696> (8802)
righteousness
<06664>_,
I declare
<05046> (8688)
things that are right
<04339>_.
Assemble
<06908> (8734)
yourselves and come
<0935> (8798)_;
draw near
<05066> (8690)
together
<03162>_,
ye [that are] escaped
<06412>
of the nations
<01471>_:
they have no knowledge
<03045> (8804)
that set up
<05375> (8802)
the wood
<06086>
of their graven image
<06459>_,
and pray
<06419> (8693)
unto a god
<0410>
[that] cannot save
<03467> (8686)_.
Tell
<05046> (8685)
ye, and bring [them] near
<05066> (8685)_;
yea, let them take counsel
<03289> (8735)
together
<03162>_:
who hath declared
<08085> (8689)
this from ancient time
<06924>_?
[who] hath told
<05046> (8689)
it from that time? [have] not I the LORD
<03068>_?
and [there is] no God
<0430>
else beside
<01107>
me; a just
<06662>
God
<0410>
and a Saviour
<03467> (8688)_;
[there is] none
<0369>
beside
<02108>
me.
Look
<06437> (8798)
unto me, and be ye saved
<03467> (8734)_,
all the ends
<0657>
of the earth
<0776>_:
for I [am] God
<0410>_,
and [there is] none else.
I have sworn
<07650> (8738)
by myself, the word
<01697>
is gone out
<03318> (8804)
of my mouth
<06310>
[in] righteousness
<06666>_,
and shall not return
<07725> (8799)_,
That unto me every knee
<01290>
shall bow
<03766> (8799)_,
every tongue
<03956>
shall swear
<07650> (8735)_.
Surely, shall [one] say
<0559> (8804)_,
in the LORD
<03068>
have I righteousness
<06666>
and strength
<05797>_:
[even] to him shall [men] come
<0935> (8799)_;
and all that are incensed
<02734> (8737)
against him shall be ashamed
<0954> (8799)_.
{Surely...: or, Surely he shall say of me, In the LORD is all righteousness and strength} {righteousness: Heb. righteousnesses}
In the LORD
<03068>
shall all the seed
<02233>
of Israel
<03478>
be justified
<06663> (8799)_,
and shall glory
<01984> (8691)_.
Bel
<01078>
boweth down
<03766> (8804)_,
Nebo
<05015>
stoopeth
<07164> (8802)_,
their idols
<06091>
were upon the beasts
<02416>_,
and upon the cattle
<0929>_:
your carriages
<05385>
[were] heavy loaden
<06006> (8803)_;
[they are] a burden
<04853>
to the weary
<05889>
[beast].
They stoop
<07164> (8804)_,
they bow down
<03766> (8804)
together
<03162>_;
they could
<03201> (8804)
not deliver
<04422> (8763)
the burden
<04853>_,
but themselves
<05315>
are gone
<01980> (8804)
into captivity
<07628>_.
{themselves: Heb. their soul}
Hearken
<08085> (8798)
unto me, O house
<01004>
of Jacob
<03290>_,
and all the remnant
<07611>
of the house
<01004>
of Israel
<03478>_,
which are borne
<06006> (8803)
[by me] from the belly
<0990>_,
which are carried
<05375> (8803)
from the womb
<07356>_:
And [even] to [your] old age
<02209>
I [am] he; and [even] to hoar hairs
<07872>
will I carry
<05445> (8799)
[you]: I have made
<06213> (8804)_,
and I will bear
<05375> (8799)_;
even I will carry
<05445> (8799)_,
and will deliver
<04422> (8762)
[you].
To whom will ye liken
<01819> (8762)
me, and make [me] equal
<07737> (8686)_,
and compare
<04911> (8686)
me, that we may be like
<01819> (8799)_?
They lavish
<02107> (8801)
gold
<02091>
out of the bag
<03599>_,
and weigh
<08254> (8799)
silver
<03701>
in the balance
<07070>_,
[and] hire
<07936> (8799)
a goldsmith
<06884> (8802)_;
and he maketh
<06213> (8799)
it a god
<0410>_:
they fall down
<05456> (8799)_,
yea, they worship
<07812> (8691)_.
They bear
<05375> (8799)
him upon the shoulder
<03802>_,
they carry
<05445> (8799)
him, and set him in his place
<03240> (8686)_,
and he standeth
<05975> (8799)_;
from his place
<04725>
shall he not remove
<04185> (8686)_:
yea, [one] shall cry
<06817> (8799)
unto him, yet can he not answer
<06030> (8799)_,
nor save
<03467> (8686)
him out of his trouble
<06869>_.
Remember
<02142> (8798)
this, and shew yourselves men
<0377> (8695)_:
bring [it] again
<07725> (8685)
to mind
<03820>_,
O ye transgressors
<06586> (8802)_.
Remember
<02142> (8798)
the former things
<07223>
of old
<05769>_:
for I [am] God
<0410>_,
and [there is] none else; [I am] God
<0430>_,
and [there is] none
<0657>
like
<03644>
me,
Declaring
<05046> (8688)
the end
<0319>
from the beginning
<07225>_,
and from ancient times
<06924>
[the things] that are not [yet] done
<06213> (8738)_,
saying
<0559> (8802)_,
My counsel
<06098>
shall stand
<06965> (8799)_,
and I will do
<06213> (8799)
all my pleasure
<02656>_:
Calling
<07121> (8802)
a ravenous bird
<05861>
from the east
<04217>_,
the man
<0376>
that executeth my counsel
<06098>
from a far
<04801>
country
<0776>_:
yea, I have spoken
<01696> (8765)
[it], I will also bring
<0935> (8686)
it to pass; I have purposed
<03335> (8804)
[it], I will also do
<06213> (8799)
it. {that...: Heb. of my counsel}
Hearken
<08085> (8798)
unto me, ye stouthearted
<047> <03820>_,
that [are] far from
<07350>
righteousness
<06666>_:
I bring near
<07126> (8765)
my righteousness
<06666>_;
it shall not be far off
<07368> (8799)_,
and my salvation
<08668>
shall not tarry
<0309> (8762)_:
and I will place
<05414> (8804)
salvation
<08668>
in Zion
<06726>
for Israel
<03478>
my glory
<08597>_.
Come down
<03381> (8798)_,
and sit
<03427> (8798)
in the dust
<06083>_,
O virgin
<01330>
daughter
<01323>
of Babylon
<0894>_,
sit
<03427> (8798)
on the ground
<0776>_:
[there is] no throne
<03678>_,
O daughter
<01323>
of the Chaldeans
<03778>_:
for thou shalt no more
<03254> (8686)
be called
<07121> (8799)
tender
<07390>
and delicate
<06028>_.
Take
<03947> (8798)
the millstones
<07347>_,
and grind
<02912> (8798)
meal
<07058>_:
uncover
<01540> (8761)
thy locks
<06777>_,
make bare
<02834> (8798)
the leg
<07640>_,
uncover
<01540> (8761)
the thigh
<07785>_,
pass over
<05674> (8798)
the rivers
<05104>_.
Thy nakedness
<06172>
shall be uncovered
<01540> (8735)_,
yea, thy shame
<02781>
shall be seen
<07200> (8735)_:
I will take
<03947> (8799)
vengeance
<05359>_,
and I will not meet
<06293> (8799)
[thee as] a man
<0120>_.
[As for] our redeemer
<01350> (8802)_,
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>
[is] his name
<08034>_,
the Holy One
<06918>
of Israel
<03478>_.
Sit
<03427> (8798)
thou silent
<01748>_,
and get
<0935> (8798)
thee into darkness
<02822>_,
O daughter
<01323>
of the Chaldeans
<03778>_:
for thou shalt no more
<03254> (8686)
be called
<07121> (8799)_,
The lady
<01404>
of kingdoms
<04467>_.
I was wroth
<07107> (8804)
with my people
<05971>_,
I have polluted
<02490> (8765)
mine inheritance
<05159>_,
and given
<05414> (8799)
them into thine hand
<03027>_:
thou didst shew
<07760> (8804)
them no mercy
<07356>_;
upon the ancient
<02205>
hast thou very
<03966>
heavily
<03513> (8689)
laid thy yoke
<05923>_.
And thou saidst
<0559> (8799)_,
I shall be a lady
<01404>
for ever
<05769>_:
[so] that thou didst not lay
<07760> (8804)
these [things] to thy heart
<03820>_,
neither didst remember
<02142> (8804)
the latter end
<0319>
of it.
Therefore hear
<08085> (8798)
now this, [thou that art] given to pleasures
<05719>_,
that dwellest
<03427> (8802)
carelessly
<0983>_,
that sayest
<0559> (8802)
in thine heart
<03824>_,
I [am], and none else
<0657>
beside me; I shall not sit
<03427> (8799)
[as] a widow
<0490>_,
neither shall I know
<03045> (8799)
the loss of children
<07908>_:
But these two
<08147>
[things] shall come
<0935> (8799)
to thee in a moment
<07281>
in one
<0259>
day
<03117>_,
the loss of children
<07908>_,
and widowhood
<0489>_:
they shall come
<0935> (8804)
upon thee in their perfection
<08537>
for the multitude
<07230>
of thy sorceries
<03785>_,
[and] for the great
<03966>
abundance
<06109>
of thine enchantments
<02267>_.
For thou hast trusted
<0982> (8799)
in thy wickedness
<07451>_:
thou hast said
<0559> (8804)_,
None seeth
<07200> (8802)
me. Thy wisdom
<02451>
and thy knowledge
<01847>_,
it hath perverted
<07725> (8790)
thee; and thou hast said
<0559> (8799)
in thine heart
<03820>_,
I [am], and none else
<0657>
beside me. {perverted...: or, caused thee to turn away}
Therefore shall evil
<07451>
come
<0935> (8804)
upon thee; thou shalt not know
<03045> (8799)
from whence it riseth
<07837>_:
and mischief
<01943>
shall fall
<05307> (8799)
upon thee; thou shalt not be able
<03201> (8799)
to put it off
<03722> (8763)_:
and desolation
<07722>
shall come
<0935> (8799)
upon thee suddenly
<06597>_,
[which] thou shalt not know
<03045> (8799)_.
{from...: Heb. the morning thereof} {put: Heb. expiate}
Stand
<05975> (8798)
now with thine enchantments
<02267>_,
and with the multitude
<07230>
of thy sorceries
<03785>_,
wherein
<0834>
thou hast laboured
<03021> (8804)
from thy youth
<05271>_;
if so be thou shalt be able
<03201> (8799)
to profit
<03276> (8687)_,
if so be thou mayest prevail
<06206> (8799)_.
Thou art wearied
<03811> (8738)
in the multitude
<07230>
of thy counsels
<06098>_.
Let now the astrologers
<01895> (8802) <08064>_,
the stargazers
<02374> <03556>_,
the monthly
<02320>
prognosticators
<03045> (8688)_,
stand up
<05975> (8799)_,
and save
<03467> (8686)
thee from [these things] that shall come
<0935> (8799)
upon thee. {astrologers: Heb. viewers of the heavens} {the monthly...: Heb. that give knowledge concerning the months}
Behold, they shall be as stubble
<07179>_;
the fire
<0784>
shall burn
<08313> (8804)
them; they shall not deliver
<05337> (8686)
themselves
<05315>
from the power
<03027>
of the flame
<03852>_:
[there shall] not [be] a coal
<01513>
to warm
<02552> (8800)
at, [nor] fire
<0217>
to sit
<03427> (8800)
before it. {themselves: Heb. their souls}
Thus shall they be unto thee with whom thou hast laboured
<03021> (8804)_,
[even] thy merchants
<05503> (8802)_,
from thy youth
<05271>_:
they shall wander
<08582> (8804)
every one
<0376>
to his quarter
<05676>_;
none shall save
<03467> (8688)
thee.
Hear
<08085> (8798)
ye this, O house
<01004>
of Jacob
<03290>_,
which are called
<07121> (8737)
by the name
<08034>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and are come forth
<03318> (8804)
out of the waters
<04325>
of Judah
<03063>_,
which swear
<07650> (8737)
by the name
<08034>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and make mention
<02142> (8686)
of the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_,
[but] not in truth
<0571>_,
nor in righteousness
<06666>_.
For they call
<07121> (8738)
themselves of the holy
<06944>
city
<05892>_,
and stay
<05564> (8738)
themselves upon the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>_;
The LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>
[is] his name
<08034>_.
I have declared
<05046> (8689)
the former things
<07223>
from the beginning
<0227>_;
and they went forth
<03318> (8804)
out of my mouth
<06310>_,
and I shewed
<08085> (8686)
them; I did
<06213> (8804)
[them] suddenly
<06597>_,
and they came to pass
<0935> (8799)_.
Because I knew
<01847>
that thou [art] obstinate
<07186>_,
and thy neck
<06203>
[is] an iron
<01270>
sinew
<01517>_,
and thy brow
<04696>
brass
<05154>_;
{obstinate: Heb. hard}
I have even from the beginning
<0227>
declared
<05046> (8686)
[it] to thee; before it came to pass
<0935> (8799)
I shewed
<08085> (8689)
[it] thee: lest thou shouldest say
<0559> (8799)_,
Mine idol
<06090>
hath done
<06213> (8804)
them, and my graven image
<06459>_,
and my molten image
<05262>_,
hath commanded
<06680> (8765)
them.
Thou hast heard
<08085> (8804)_,
see
<02372> (8798)
all this; and will not ye declare
<05046> (8686)
[it]? I have shewed
<08085> (8689)
thee new things
<02319>
from this time
<06258>_,
even hidden things
<05341> (8803)_,
and thou didst not know
<03045> (8804)
them.
They are created
<01254> (8738)
now, and not from the beginning; even before
<06440>
the day
<03117>
when thou heardest
<08085> (8804)
them not; lest thou shouldest say
<0559> (8799)_,
Behold, I knew
<03045> (8804)
them.
Yea, thou heardest
<08085> (8804)
not; yea, thou knewest
<03045> (8804)
not; yea, from that time [that] thine ear
<0241>
was not opened
<06605> (8765)_:
for I knew
<03045> (8804)
that thou wouldest deal very
<0898> (8800)
treacherously
<0898> (8799)_,
and wast called
<07121> (8795)
a transgressor
<06586> (8802)
from the womb
<0990>_.
For my name's
<08034>
sake will I defer
<0748> (8686)
mine anger
<0639>_,
and for my praise
<08416>
will I refrain
<02413> (8799)
for thee, that I cut thee not off
<03772> (8687)_.
Behold, I have refined
<06884> (8804)
thee, but not with silver
<03701>_;
I have chosen
<0977> (8804)
thee in the furnace
<03564>
of affliction
<06040>_.
{with...: or, for silver}
For mine own sake, [even] for mine own sake, will I do
<06213> (8799)
[it]: for how should [my name] be polluted
<02490> (8735)_?
and I will not give
<05414> (8799)
my glory
<03519>
unto another
<0312>_.
Hearken
<08085> (8798)
unto me, O Jacob
<03290>
and Israel
<03478>_,
my called
<07121> (8794)_;
I [am] he; I [am] the first
<07223>_,
I also [am] the last
<0314>_.
Mine hand
<03027>
also hath laid the foundation
<03245> (8804)
of the earth
<0776>_,
and my right hand
<03225>
hath spanned
<02946> (8765)
the heavens
<08064>_:
[when] I call
<07121> (8802)
unto them, they stand up
<05975> (8799)
together
<03162>_.
{my...: or, the palm of my right hand hath spread out}
All ye, assemble
<06908> (8734)
yourselves, and hear
<08085> (8798)_;
which among them hath declared
<05046> (8689)
these [things]? The LORD
<03068>
hath loved
<0157> (8804)
him: he will do
<06213> (8799)
his pleasure
<02656>
on Babylon
<0894>_,
and his arm
<02220>
[shall be on] the Chaldeans
<03778>_.
I, [even] I, have spoken
<01696> (8765)_;
yea, I have called
<07121> (8804)
him: I have brought
<0935> (8689)
him, and he shall make his way
<01870>
prosperous
<06743> (8689)_.
Come
<07126> (8798)
ye near
<07126> (8798)
unto me, hear
<08085> (8798)
ye this; I have not spoken
<01696> (8765)
in secret
<05643>
from the beginning
<07218>_;
from the time
<06256>
that it was, there [am] I: and now the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_,
and his Spirit
<07307>_,
hath sent
<07971> (8804)
me.
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
thy Redeemer
<01350> (8802)_,
the Holy One
<06918>
of Israel
<03478>_;
I [am] the LORD
<03068>
thy God
<0430>
which teacheth
<03925> (8764)
thee to profit
<03276> (8687)_,
which leadeth
<01869> (8688)
thee by the way
<01870>
[that] thou shouldest go
<03212> (8799)_.
O that
<03863>
thou hadst hearkened
<07181> (8689)
to my commandments
<04687>_!
then had thy peace
<07965>
been as a river
<05104>_,
and thy righteousness
<06666>
as the waves
<01530>
of the sea
<03220>_:
Thy seed
<02233>
also had been as the sand
<02344>_,
and the offspring
<06631>
of thy bowels
<04578>
like the gravel
<04579>
thereof; his name
<08034>
should not have been cut off
<03772> (8735)
nor destroyed
<08045> (8735)
from before
<06440>
me.
Go ye forth
<03318> (8798)
of Babylon
<0894>_,
flee
<01272> (8798)
ye from the Chaldeans
<03778>_,
with a voice
<06963>
of singing
<07440>
declare
<05046> (8685)
ye, tell
<08085> (8685)
this, utter
<03318> (8685)
it [even] to the end
<07097>
of the earth
<0776>_;
say
<0559> (8798)
ye, The LORD
<03068>
hath redeemed
<01350> (8804)
his servant
<05650>
Jacob
<03290>_.
And they thirsted
<06770> (8804)
not [when] he led
<03212> (8689)
them through the deserts
<02723>_:
he caused the waters
<04325>
to flow
<05140> (8689)
out of the rock
<06697>
for them: he clave
<01234> (8799)
the rock
<06697>
also, and the waters
<04325>
gushed out
<02100> (8799)_.
[There is] no peace
<07965>_,
saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
unto the wicked
<07563>_.
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}
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
Where [is] the bill
<05612>
of your mother's
<0517>
divorcement
<03748>_,
whom I have put away
<07971> (8765)_?
or which of my creditors
<05383> (8802)
[is it] to whom I have sold
<04376> (8804)
you? Behold, for your iniquities
<05771>
have ye sold
<04376> (8738)
yourselves, and for your transgressions
<06588>
is your mother
<0517>
put away
<07971> (8795)_.
Wherefore, when I came
<0935> (8804)_,
[was there] no man
<0376>_?
when I called
<07121> (8804)_,
[was there] none to answer
<06030> (8802)_?
Is my hand
<03027>
shortened
<07114> (8804)
at all
<07114> (8800)_,
that it cannot redeem
<06304>_?
or have I no power
<03581>
to deliver
<05337> (8687)_?
behold, at my rebuke
<01606>
I dry up
<02717> (8686)
the sea
<03220>_,
I make
<07760> (8799)
the rivers
<05104>
a wilderness
<04057>_:
their fish
<01710>
stinketh
<0887> (8799)_,
because [there is] no water
<04325>_,
and dieth
<04191> (8799)
for thirst
<06772>_.
I clothe
<03847> (8686)
the heavens
<08064>
with blackness
<06940>_,
and I make
<07760> (8799)
sackcloth
<08242>
their covering
<03682>_.
The Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>
hath given
<05414> (8804)
me the tongue
<03956>
of the learned
<03928>_,
that I should know
<03045> (8800)
how to speak
<05790> (8800)
a word
<01697>
in season to [him that is] weary
<03287>_:
he wakeneth
<05782> (8686)
morning
<01242>
by morning
<01242>_,
he wakeneth
<05782> (8686)
mine ear
<0241>
to hear
<08085> (8800)
as the learned
<03928>_.
The Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>
hath opened
<06605> (8804)
mine ear
<0241>_,
and I was not rebellious
<04784> (8804)_,
neither turned away
<05472> (8738)
back
<0268>_.
I gave
<05414> (8804)
my back
<01460>
to the smiters
<05221> (8688)_,
and my cheeks
<03895>
to them that plucked off
<04803> (8802)
the hair: I hid
<05641> (8689)
not my face
<06440>
from shame
<03639>
and spitting
<07536>_.
For the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>
will help
<05826> (8799)
me; therefore shall I not be confounded
<03637> (8738)_:
therefore have I set
<07760> (8804)
my face
<06440>
like a flint
<02496>_,
and I know
<03045> (8799)
that I shall not be ashamed
<0954> (8799)_.
[He is] near
<07138>
that justifieth
<06663> (8688)
me; who will contend
<07378> (8799)
with me? let us stand
<05975> (8799)
together
<03162>_:
who [is] mine adversary
<01167> <04941>_?
let him come near
<05066> (8799)
to me. {mine...: Heb. the master of my cause?}
Behold, the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>
will help
<05826> (8799)
me; who [is] he [that] shall condemn
<07561> (8686)
me? lo, they all shall wax old
<01086> (8799)
as a garment
<0899>_;
the moth
<06211>
shall eat them up
<0398> (8799)_.
Who [is] among you that feareth
<03373>
the LORD
<03068>_,
that obeyeth
<08085> (8802)
the voice
<06963>
of his servant
<05650>_,
that walketh
<01980> (8804)
[in] darkness
<02825>_,
and hath no light
<05051>_?
let him trust
<0982> (8799)
in the name
<08034>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and stay
<08172> (8735)
upon his God
<0430>_.
Behold, all ye that kindle
<06919> (8802)
a fire
<0784>_,
that compass [yourselves] about
<0247> (8764)
with sparks
<02131>_:
walk
<03212> (8798)
in the light
<0217>
of your fire
<0784>_,
and in the sparks
<02131>
[that] ye have kindled
<01197> (8765)_.
This shall ye have of mine hand
<03027>_;
ye shall lie down
<07901> (8799)
in sorrow
<04620>_.
Hearken
<08085> (8798)
to me, ye that follow after
<07291> (8802)
righteousness
<06664>_,
ye that seek
<01245> (8764)
the LORD
<03068>_:
look
<05027> (8685)
unto the rock
<06697>
[whence] ye are hewn
<02672> (8795)_,
and to the hole
<04718>
of the pit
<0953>
[whence] ye are digged
<05365> (8795)_.
Look
<05027> (8685)
unto Abraham
<085>
your father
<01>_,
and unto Sarah
<08283>
[that] bare
<02342> (8787)
you: for I called
<07121> (8804)
him alone
<0259>_,
and blessed
<01288> (8762)
him, and increased
<07235> (8686)
him.
For the LORD
<03068>
shall comfort
<05162> (8765)
Zion
<06726>_:
he will comfort
<05162> (8765)
all her waste places
<02723>_;
and he will make
<07760> (8799)
her wilderness
<04057>
like Eden
<05731>_,
and her desert
<06160>
like the garden
<01588>
of the LORD
<03068>_;
joy
<08342>
and gladness
<08057>
shall be found
<04672> (8735)
therein, thanksgiving
<08426>_,
and the voice
<06963>
of melody
<02172>_.
Hearken
<07181> (8685)
unto me, my people
<05971>_;
and give ear
<0238> (8685)
unto me, O my nation
<03816>_:
for a law
<08451>
shall proceed
<03318> (8799)
from me, and I will make my judgment
<04941>
to rest
<07280> (8686)
for a light
<0216>
of the people
<05971>_.
My righteousness
<06664>
[is] near
<07138>_;
my salvation
<03468>
is gone forth
<03318> (8804)_,
and mine arms
<02220>
shall judge
<08199> (8799)
the people
<05971>_;
the isles
<0339>
shall wait
<06960> (8762)
upon me, and on mine arm
<02220>
shall they trust
<03176> (8762)_.
Lift up
<05375> (8798)
your eyes
<05869>
to the heavens
<08064>_,
and look
<05027> (8685)
upon the earth
<0776>
beneath: for the heavens
<08064>
shall vanish away
<04414> (8738)
like smoke
<06227>_,
and the earth
<0776>
shall wax old
<01086> (8799)
like a garment
<0899>_,
and they that dwell
<03427> (8802)
therein shall die
<04191> (8799)
in like
<03644>
manner
<03654>_:
but my salvation
<03444>
shall be for ever
<05769>_,
and my righteousness
<06666>
shall not be abolished
<02865> (8735)_.
Hearken
<08085> (8798)
unto me, ye that know
<03045> (8802)
righteousness
<06664>_,
the people
<05971>
in whose heart
<03820>
[is] my law
<08451>_;
fear
<03372> (8799)
ye not the reproach
<02781>
of men
<0582>_,
neither be ye afraid
<02865> (8735)
of their revilings
<01421>_.
For the moth
<06211>
shall eat them up
<0398> (8799)
like a garment
<0899>_,
and the worm
<05580>
shall eat
<0398> (8799)
them like wool
<06785>_:
but my righteousness
<06666>
shall be for ever
<05769>_,
and my salvation
<03444>
from generation
<01755>
to generation
<01755>_.
Awake
<05782> (8798)_,
awake
<05782> (8798)_,
put on
<03847> (8798)
strength
<05797>_,
O arm
<02220>
of the LORD
<03068>_;
awake
<05782> (8798)_,
as in the ancient
<06924>
days
<03117>_,
in the generations
<01755>
of old
<05769>_.
[Art] thou not it that hath cut
<02672> (8688)
Rahab
<07294>_,
[and] wounded
<02490> (8781)
the dragon
<08577>_?
[Art] thou not it which hath dried
<02717> (8688)
the sea
<03220>_,
the waters
<04325>
of the great
<07227>
deep
<08415>_;
that hath made
<07760> (8804)
the depths
<04615>
of the sea
<03220>
a way
<01870>
for the ransomed
<01350> (8803)
to pass over
<05674> (8800)_?
Therefore the redeemed
<06299> (8803)
of the LORD
<03068>
shall return
<07725> (8799)_,
and come
<0935> (8804)
with singing
<07440>
unto Zion
<06726>_;
and everlasting
<05769>
joy
<08057>
[shall be] upon their head
<07218>_:
they shall obtain
<05381> (8686)
gladness
<08342>
and joy
<08057>_;
[and] sorrow
<03015>
and mourning
<0585>
shall flee away
<05127> (8804)_.
I, [even] I, [am] he that comforteth
<05162> (8764)
you: who [art] thou, that thou shouldest be afraid
<03372> (8799)
of a man
<0582>
[that] shall die
<04191> (8799)_,
and of the son
<01121>
of man
<0120>
[which] shall be made
<05414> (8735)
[as] grass
<02682>_;
And forgettest
<07911> (8799)
the LORD
<03068>
thy maker
<06213> (8802)_,
that hath stretched forth
<05186> (8802)
the heavens
<08064>_,
and laid the foundations
<03245> (8801)
of the earth
<0776>_;
and hast feared
<06342> (8762)
continually
<08548>
every day
<03117>
because
<06440>
of the fury
<02534>
of the oppressor
<06693> (8688)_,
as if
<0834>
he were ready
<03559> (8790)
to destroy
<07843> (8687)_?
and where [is] the fury
<02534>
of the oppressor
<06693> (8688)_?
{were...: or, made himself ready}
The captive exile
<06808> (8802)
hasteneth
<04116> (8765)
that he may be loosed
<06605> (8736)_,
and that he should not die
<04191> (8799)
in the pit
<07845>_,
nor that his bread
<03899>
should fail
<02637> (8799)_.
But I [am] the LORD
<03068>
thy God
<0430>_,
that divided
<07280> (8802)
the sea
<03220>_,
whose waves
<01530>
roared
<01993> (8799)_:
The LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>
[is] his name
<08034>_.
And I have put
<07760> (8799)
my words
<01697>
in thy mouth
<06310>_,
and I have covered
<03680> (8765)
thee in the shadow
<06738>
of mine hand
<03027>_,
that I may plant
<05193> (8800)
the heavens
<08064>_,
and lay the foundations
<03245> (8800)
of the earth
<0776>_,
and say
<0559> (8800)
unto Zion
<06726>_,
Thou [art] my people
<05971>_.
Awake
<05782> (8708)_,
awake
<05782> (8708)_,
stand up
<06965> (8798)_,
O Jerusalem
<03389>_,
which hast drunk
<08354> (8804)
at the hand
<03027>
of the LORD
<03068>
the cup
<03563>
of his fury
<02534>_;
thou hast drunken
<08354> (8804)
the dregs
<06907>
of the cup
<03563>
of trembling
<08653>_,
[and] wrung [them] out
<04680> (8804)_.
[There is] none to guide
<05095> (8764)
her among all the sons
<01121>
[whom] she hath brought forth
<03205> (8804)_;
neither [is there any] that taketh
<02388> (8688)
her by the hand
<03027>
of all the sons
<01121>
[that] she hath brought up
<01431> (8765)_.
These two
<08147>
[things] are come
<07122> (8802)
unto thee; who shall be sorry
<05110> (8799)
for thee? desolation
<07701>_,
and destruction
<07667>_,
and the famine
<07458>_,
and the sword
<02719>_:
by whom shall I comfort
<05162> (8762)
thee? {are...: Heb. happened} {destruction: Heb. breaking}
Thy sons
<01121>
have fainted
<05968> (8795)_,
they lie
<07901> (8804)
at the head
<07218>
of all the streets
<02351>_,
as a wild bull
<08377>
in a net
<04364>_:
they are full
<04392>
of the fury
<02534>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
the rebuke
<01606>
of thy God
<0430>_.
Therefore hear
<08085> (8798)
now this, thou afflicted
<06041>_,
and drunken
<07937> (8803)_,
but not with wine
<03196>_:
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
thy Lord
<0113>
the LORD
<03068>_,
and thy God
<0430>
[that] pleadeth
<07378> (8799)
the cause of his people
<05971>_,
Behold, I have taken out
<03947> (8804)
of thine hand
<03027>
the cup
<03563>
of trembling
<08653>_,
[even] the dregs
<06907>
of the cup
<03563>
of my fury
<02534>_;
thou shalt no more
<03254> (8686)
drink it again
<08354> (8800)_:
But I will put
<07760> (8804)
it into the hand
<03027>
of them that afflict
<03013> (8688)
thee; which have said
<0559> (8804)
to thy soul
<05315>_,
Bow down
<07812> (8798)_,
that we may go over
<05674> (8799)_:
and thou hast laid
<07760> (8799)
thy body
<01460>
as the ground
<0776>_,
and as the street
<02351>_,
to them that went over
<05674> (8802)_.
Awake
<05782> (8798)_,
awake
<05782> (8798)_;
put on
<03847> (8798)
thy strength
<05797>_,
O Zion
<06726>_;
put on
<03847> (8798)
thy beautiful
<08597>
garments
<0899>_,
O Jerusalem
<03389>_,
the holy
<06944>
city
<05892>_:
for henceforth there shall no more
<03254> (8686)
come
<0935> (8799)
into thee the uncircumcised
<06189>
and the unclean
<02931>_.
Shake
<05287> (8690)
thyself from the dust
<06083>_;
arise
<06965> (8798)_,
[and] sit down
<03427> (8798)_,
O Jerusalem
<03389>_:
loose
<06605> (8690)
thyself from the bands
<04147>
of thy neck
<06677>_,
O captive
<07628>
daughter
<01323>
of Zion
<06726>_.
For thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
Ye have sold
<04376> (8738)
yourselves for nought
<02600>_;
and ye shall be redeemed
<01350> (8735)
without money
<03701>_.
For thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_,
My people
<05971>
went down
<03381> (8804)
aforetime
<07223>
into Egypt
<04714>
to sojourn
<01481> (8800)
there; and the Assyrian
<0804>
oppressed
<06231> (8804)
them without cause
<0657>_.
Now therefore, what have I here, saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_,
that my people
<05971>
is taken away
<03947> (8795)
for nought
<02600>_?
they that rule
<04910> (8802)
over them make them to howl
<03213> (8686)_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_;
and my name
<08034>
continually
<08548>
every day
<03117>
[is] blasphemed
<05006> (8711)_.
Therefore my people
<05971>
shall know
<03045> (8799)
my name
<08034>_:
therefore [they shall know] in that day
<03117>
that I [am] he that doth speak
<01696> (8764)_:
behold, [it is] I.
How beautiful
<04998> (8773)
upon the mountains
<02022>
are the feet
<07272>
of him that bringeth good tidings
<01319> (8764)_,
that publisheth
<08085> (8688)
peace
<07965>_;
that bringeth good tidings
<01319> (8764)
of good
<02896>_,
that publisheth
<08085> (8688)
salvation
<03444>_;
that saith
<0559> (8802)
unto Zion
<06726>_,
Thy God
<0430>
reigneth
<04427> (8804)_!
Thy watchmen
<06822> (8802)
shall lift up
<05375> (8804)
the voice
<06963>_;
with the voice
<06963>
together
<03162>
shall they sing
<07442> (8762)_:
for they shall see
<07200> (8799)
eye
<05869>
to eye
<05869>_,
when the LORD
<03068>
shall bring again
<07725> (8800)
Zion
<06726>_.
Break forth into joy
<06476> (8798)_,
sing
<07442> (8761)
together
<03162>_,
ye waste places
<02723>
of Jerusalem
<03389>_:
for the LORD
<03068>
hath comforted
<05162> (8765)
his people
<05971>_,
he hath redeemed
<01350> (8804)
Jerusalem
<03389>_.
The LORD
<03068>
hath made bare
<02834> (8804)
his holy
<06944>
arm
<02220>
in the eyes
<05869>
of all the nations
<01471>_;
and all the ends
<0657>
of the earth
<0776>
shall see
<07200> (8804)
the salvation
<03444>
of our God
<0430>_.
Depart
<05493> (8798)
ye, depart
<05493> (8798)
ye, go ye out
<03318> (8798)
from thence, touch
<05060> (8799)
no unclean
<02931>
[thing]; go ye out
<03318> (8798)
of the midst
<08432>
of her; be ye clean
<01305> (8734)_,
that bear
<05375> (8802)
the vessels
<03627>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
For ye shall not go out
<03318> (8799)
with haste
<02649>_,
nor go
<03212> (8799)
by flight
<04499>_:
for the LORD
<03068>
will go
<01980> (8802)
before
<06440>
you; and the God
<0430>
of Israel
<03478>
[will be] your rereward
<0622> (8764)_.
{be...: Heb. gather you up}
Behold, my servant
<05650>
shall deal prudently
<07919> (8686)_,
he shall be exalted
<07311> (8799)
and extolled
<05375> (8738)_,
and be very
<03966>
high
<01361> (8804)_.
{deal...: or, prosper}
As many
<07227>
were astonied
<08074> (8804)
at thee; his visage
<04758>
was so marred
<04893>
more than any man
<0376>_,
and his form
<08389>
more than the sons
<01121>
of men
<0120>_:
So shall he sprinkle
<05137> (8686)
many
<07227>
nations
<01471>_;
the kings
<04428>
shall shut
<07092> (8799)
their mouths
<06310>
at him: for [that] which had not been told
<05608> (8795)
them shall they see
<07200> (8804)_;
and [that] which they had not heard
<08085> (8804)
shall they consider
<0995> (8712)_.
Who hath believed
<0539> (8689)
our report
<08052>_?
and to whom is the arm
<02220>
of the LORD
<03068>
revealed
<01540> (8738)_?
{report: or, doctrine?: Heb. hearing?}
For he shall grow up
<05927> (8799)
before
<06440>
him as a tender plant
<03126>_,
and as a root
<08328>
out of a dry
<06723>
ground
<0776>_:
he hath no form
<08389>
nor comeliness
<01926>_;
and when we shall see
<07200> (8799)
him, [there is] no beauty
<04758>
that we should desire
<02530> (8799)
him.
He is despised
<0959> (8737)
and rejected
<02310>
of men
<0376>_;
a man
<0376>
of sorrows
<04341>_,
and acquainted
<03045> (8803)
with grief
<02483>_:
and we hid as it were
<04564> (8688)
[our] faces
<06440>
from him; he was despised
<0959> (8737)_,
and we esteemed
<02803> (8804)
him not. {we hid...: or, he hid as it were his face from us: Heb. as an hiding of faces from him, or, from us}
Surely
<0403>
he hath borne
<05375> (8804)
our griefs
<02483>_,
and carried
<05445> (8804)
our sorrows
<04341>_:
yet we did esteem
<02803> (8804)
him stricken
<05060> (8803)_,
smitten
<05221> (8716)
of God
<0430>_,
and afflicted
<06031> (8794)_.
But he [was] wounded
<02490> (8775)
for our transgressions
<06588>_,
[he was] bruised
<01792> (8794)
for our iniquities
<05771>_:
the chastisement
<04148>
of our peace
<07965>
[was] upon him; and with his stripes
<02250>
we are healed
<07495> (8738)_.
{wounded: or, tormented} {stripes: Heb. bruise}
All we like sheep
<06629>
have gone astray
<08582> (8804)_;
we have turned
<06437> (8804)
every one
<0376>
to his own way
<01870>_;
and the LORD
<03068>
hath laid
<06293> (8689)
on him the iniquity
<05771>
of us all. {laid...: Heb. made the iniquity of us all to meet on him}
He was oppressed
<05065> (8738)_,
and he was afflicted
<06031> (8737)_,
yet he opened
<06605> (8799)
not his mouth
<06310>_:
he is brought
<02986> (8714)
as a lamb
<07716>
to the slaughter
<02874>_,
and as a sheep
<07353>
before
<06440>
her shearers
<01494> (8802)
is dumb
<0481> (8738)_,
so he openeth
<06605> (8799)
not his mouth
<06310>_.
He was taken
<03947> (8795)
from prison
<06115>
and from judgment
<04941>_:
and who shall declare
<07878> (8787)
his generation
<01755>_?
for he was cut off
<01504> (8738)
out of the land
<0776>
of the living
<02416>_:
for the transgression
<06588>
of my people
<05971>
was he stricken
<05061>_.
{from prison...: or, away by distress and judgment: but, etc} {was he...: Heb. was the stroke upon him}
And he made
<05414> (8799)
his grave
<06913>
with the wicked
<07563>_,
and with the rich
<06223>
in his death
<04194>_;
because he had done
<06213> (8804)
no violence
<02555>_,
neither [was any] deceit
<04820>
in his mouth
<06310>_.
{death: Heb. deaths}
Yet it pleased
<02654> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
to bruise
<01792> (8763)
him; he hath put [him] to grief
<02470> (8689)_:
when thou shalt make
<07760> (8799)
his soul
<05315>
an offering for sin
<0817>_,
he shall see
<07200> (8799)
[his] seed
<02233>_,
he shall prolong
<0748> (8686)
[his] days
<03117>_,
and the pleasure
<02656>
of the LORD
<03068>
shall prosper
<06743> (8799)
in his hand
<03027>_.
{thou...: or, his soul shall make an offering}
He shall see
<07200> (8799)
of the travail
<05999>
of his soul
<05315>_,
[and] shall be satisfied
<07646> (8799)_:
by his knowledge
<01847>
shall my righteous
<06662>
servant
<05650>
justify
<06663> (8686)
many
<07227>_;
for he shall bear
<05445> (8799)
their iniquities
<05771>_.
Therefore will I divide
<02505> (8762)
him [a portion] with the great
<07227>_,
and he shall divide
<02505> (8762)
the spoil
<07998>
with the strong
<06099>_;
because he hath poured out
<06168> (8689)
his soul
<05315>
unto death
<04194>_:
and he was numbered
<04487> (8738)
with the transgressors
<06586> (8802)_;
and he bare
<05375> (8804)
the sin
<02399>
of many
<07227>_,
and made intercession
<06293> (8686)
for the transgressors
<06586> (8802)_.
Sing
<07442> (8798)_,
O barren
<06135>_,
thou [that] didst not bear
<03205> (8804)_;
break forth
<06476> (8798)
into singing
<07440>_,
and cry aloud
<06670> (8761)_,
thou [that] didst not travail with child
<02342> (8804)_:
for more
<07227>
[are] the children
<01121>
of the desolate
<08074> (8802)
than the children
<01121>
of the married wife
<01166> (8803)_,
saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_.
Enlarge
<07337> (8685)
the place
<04725>
of thy tent
<0168>_,
and let them stretch forth
<05186> (8686)
the curtains
<03407>
of thine habitations
<04908>_:
spare
<02820> (8799)
not, lengthen
<0748> (8685)
thy cords
<04340>_,
and strengthen
<02388> (8761)
thy stakes
<03489>_;
For thou shalt break forth
<06555> (8799)
on the right hand
<03225>
and on the left
<08040>_;
and thy seed
<02233>
shall inherit
<03423> (8799)
the Gentiles
<01471>_,
and make the desolate
<08074> (8737)
cities
<05892>
to be inhabited
<03427> (8686)_.
Fear
<03372> (8799)
not; for thou shalt not be ashamed
<0954> (8799)_:
neither be thou confounded
<03637> (8735)_;
for thou shalt not be put to shame
<02659> (8686)_:
for thou shalt forget
<07911> (8799)
the shame
<01322>
of thy youth
<05934>_,
and shalt not remember
<02142> (8799)
the reproach
<02781>
of thy widowhood
<0491>
any more.
For thy Maker
<06213> (8802)
[is] thine husband
<01166> (8802)_;
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>
[is] his name
<08034>_;
and thy Redeemer
<01350> (8802)
the Holy One
<06918>
of Israel
<03478>_;
The God
<0430>
of the whole earth
<0776>
shall he be called
<07121> (8735)_.
{Maker: Heb. Makers}
For the LORD
<03068>
hath called
<07121> (8804)
thee as a woman
<0802>
forsaken
<05800> (8803)
and grieved
<06087> (8803)
in spirit
<07307>_,
and a wife
<0802>
of youth
<05271>_,
when thou wast refused
<03988> (8735)_,
saith
<0559> (8804)
thy God
<0430>_.
For a small
<06996>
moment
<07281>
have I forsaken
<05800> (8804)
thee; but with great
<01419>
mercies
<07356>
will I gather
<06908> (8762)
thee.
In a little
<08241>
wrath
<07110>
I hid
<05641> (8689)
my face
<06440>
from thee for a moment
<07281>_;
but with everlasting
<05769>
kindness
<02617>
will I have mercy
<07355> (8765)
on thee, saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
thy Redeemer
<01350> (8802)_.
For this [is as] the waters
<04325>
of Noah
<05146>
unto me: for [as] I have sworn
<07650> (8738)
that the waters
<04325>
of Noah
<05146>
should no more go over
<05674> (8800)
the earth
<0776>_;
so have I sworn
<07650> (8738)
that I would not be wroth
<07107> (8800)
with thee, nor rebuke
<01605> (8800)
thee.
For the mountains
<02022>
shall depart
<04185> (8799)_,
and the hills
<01389>
be removed
<04131> (8799)_;
but my kindness
<02617>
shall not depart
<04185> (8799)
from thee, neither shall the covenant
<01285>
of my peace
<07965>
be removed
<04131> (8799)_,
saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
that hath mercy
<07355> (8764)
on thee.
O thou afflicted
<06041>_,
tossed with tempest
<05590> (8802)_,
[and] not comforted
<05162> (8794)_,
behold, I will lay
<07257> (8688)
thy stones
<068>
with fair colours
<06320>_,
and lay thy foundations
<03245> (8804)
with sapphires
<05601>_.
And I will make
<07760> (8804)
thy windows
<08121>
of agates
<03539>_,
and thy gates
<08179>
of carbuncles
<068> <0688>_,
and all thy borders
<01366>
of pleasant
<02656>
stones
<068>_.
And all thy children
<01121>
[shall be] taught
<03928>
of the LORD
<03068>_;
and great
<07227>
[shall be] the peace
<07965>
of thy children
<01121>_.
In righteousness
<06666>
shalt thou be established
<03559> (8709)_:
thou shalt be far
<07368> (8798)
from oppression
<06233>_;
for thou shalt not fear
<03372> (8799)_:
and from terror
<04288>_;
for it shall not come near
<07126> (8799)
thee.
Behold, they shall surely
<01481> (8800)
gather together
<01481> (8799)_,
[but] not
<0657>
by me: whosoever
<04310>
shall gather together
<01481> (8804)
against thee shall fall
<05307> (8799)
for thy sake.
Behold, I have created
<01254> (8804)
the smith
<02796>
that bloweth
<05301> (8802)
the coals
<06352>
in the fire
<0784>_,
and that bringeth forth
<03318> (8688)
an instrument
<03627>
for his work
<04639>_;
and I have created
<01254> (8804)
the waster
<07843> (8688)
to destroy
<02254> (8763)_.
No weapon
<03627>
that is formed
<03335> (8714)
against thee shall prosper
<06743> (8799)_;
and every tongue
<03956>
[that] shall rise
<06965> (8799)
against thee in judgment
<04941>
thou shalt condemn
<07561> (8686)_.
This [is] the heritage
<05159>
of the servants
<05650>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and their righteousness
<06666>
[is] of me, saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
Ho
<01945>_,
every one that thirsteth
<06771>_,
come
<03212> (8798)
ye to the waters
<04325>_,
and he that hath no money
<03701>_;
come
<03212> (8798)
ye, buy
<07666> (8798)_,
and eat
<0398> (8798)_;
yea, come
<03212> (8798)_,
buy
<07666> (8798)
wine
<03196>
and milk
<02461>
without money
<03701>
and without price
<04242>_.
Wherefore do ye spend
<08254> (8799)
money
<03701>
for [that which is] not bread
<03899>_?
and your labour
<03018>
for [that which] satisfieth
<07654>
not
<03808>_?
hearken
<08085> (8798)
diligently
<08085> (8800)
unto me, and eat
<0398> (8798)
ye [that which is] good
<02896>_,
and let your soul
<05315>
delight
<06026> (8691)
itself in fatness
<01880>_.
{spend: Heb. weigh}
Incline
<05186> (8685)
your ear
<0241>_,
and come
<03212> (8798)
unto me: hear
<08085> (8798)_,
and your soul
<05315>
shall live
<02421> (8799)_;
and I will make
<03772> (8799)
an everlasting
<05769>
covenant
<01285>
with you, [even] the sure
<0539> (8737)
mercies
<02617>
of David
<01732>_.
Behold, I have given
<05414> (8804)
him [for] a witness
<05707>
to the people
<03816>_,
a leader
<05057>
and commander
<06680> (8764)
to the people
<03816>_.
Behold, thou shalt call
<07121> (8799)
a nation
<01471>
[that] thou knowest
<03045> (8799)
not, and nations
<01471>
[that] knew
<03045> (8804)
not thee shall run
<07323> (8799)
unto thee because of the LORD
<03068>
thy God
<0430>_,
and for the Holy One
<06918>
of Israel
<03478>_;
for he hath glorified
<06286> (8765)
thee.
Seek
<01875> (8798)
ye the LORD
<03068>
while he may be found
<04672> (8736)_,
call
<07121> (8798)
ye upon him while he is near
<07138>_:
Let the wicked
<07563>
forsake
<05800> (8799)
his way
<01870>_,
and the unrighteous
<0205>
man
<0376>
his thoughts
<04284>_:
and let him return
<07725> (8799)
unto the LORD
<03068>_,
and he will have mercy
<07355> (8762)
upon him; and to our God
<0430>_,
for he will abundantly
<07235> (8686)
pardon
<05545> (8800)_.
{the unrighteous...: Heb. the man of iniquity} {abundantly...: Heb. multiply to pardon}
For my thoughts
<04284>
[are] not your thoughts
<04284>_,
neither [are] your ways
<01870>
my ways
<01870>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
For [as] the heavens
<08064>
are higher
<01361> (8804)
than the earth
<0776>_,
so are my ways
<01870>
higher
<01361> (8804)
than your ways
<01870>_,
and my thoughts
<04284>
than your thoughts
<04284>_.
For as the rain
<01653>
cometh down
<03381> (8799)_,
and the snow
<07950>
from heaven
<08064>_,
and returneth
<07725> (8799)
not thither, but watereth
<07301> (8689)
the earth
<0776>_,
and maketh it bring forth
<03205> (8689)
and bud
<06779> (8689)_,
that it may give
<05414> (8804)
seed
<02233>
to the sower
<02232> (8802)_,
and bread
<03899>
to the eater
<0398> (8802)_:
So shall my word
<01697>
be that goeth forth
<03318> (8799)
out of my mouth
<06310>_:
it shall not return
<07725> (8799)
unto me void
<07387>_,
but it shall accomplish
<06213> (8804)
that which I please
<02654> (8804)_,
and it shall prosper
<06743> (8689)
[in the thing] whereto I sent
<07971> (8804)
it.
For ye shall go out
<03318> (8799)
with joy
<08057>_,
and be led forth
<02986> (8714)
with peace
<07965>_:
the mountains
<02022>
and the hills
<01389>
shall break forth
<06476> (8799)
before
<06440>
you into singing
<07440>_,
and all the trees
<06086>
of the field
<07704>
shall clap
<04222> (8799)
[their] hands
<03709>_.
Instead of the thorn
<05285>
shall come up
<05927> (8799)
the fir tree
<01265>_,
and instead of the brier
<05636>
shall come up
<05927> (8799)
the myrtle tree
<01918>_:
and it shall be to the LORD
<03068>
for a name
<08034>_,
for an everlasting
<05769>
sign
<0226>
[that] shall not be cut off
<03772> (8735)_.
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
Keep
<08104> (8798)
ye judgment
<04941>_,
and do
<06213> (8798)
justice
<06666>_:
for my salvation
<03444>
[is] near
<07138>
to come
<0935> (8800)_,
and my righteousness
<06666>
to be revealed
<01540> (8736)_.
{judgment: or, equity}
Blessed
<0835>
[is] the man
<0582>
[that] doeth
<06213> (8799)
this, and the son
<01121>
of man
<0120>
[that] layeth hold
<02388> (8686)
on it; that keepeth
<08104> (8802)
the sabbath
<07676>
from polluting
<02490> (8763)
it, and keepeth
<08104> (8802)
his hand
<03027>
from doing
<06213> (8800)
any evil
<07451>_.
Neither let the son
<01121>
of the stranger
<05236>_,
that hath joined
<03867> (8738)
himself to the LORD
<03068>_,
speak
<0559> (8799)_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
The LORD
<03068>
hath utterly
<0914> (8687)
separated
<0914> (8686)
me from his people
<05971>_:
neither let the eunuch
<05631>
say
<0559> (8799)_,
Behold, I [am] a dry
<03002>
tree
<06086>_.
For thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
unto the eunuchs
<05631>
that keep
<08104> (8799)
my sabbaths
<07676>_,
and choose
<0977> (8804)
[the things] that please
<02654> (8804)
me, and take hold
<02388> (8688)
of my covenant
<01285>_;
Even unto them will I give
<05414> (8804)
in mine house
<01004>
and within my walls
<02346>
a place
<03027>
and a name
<08034>
better
<02896>
than of sons
<01121>
and of daughters
<01323>_:
I will give
<05414> (8799)
them an everlasting
<05769>
name
<08034>_,
that shall not be cut off
<03772> (8735)_.
Also the sons
<01121>
of the stranger
<05236>_,
that join
<03867> (8737)
themselves to the LORD
<03068>_,
to serve
<08334> (8763)
him, and to love
<0157> (8800)
the name
<08034>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
to be his servants
<05650>_,
every one that keepeth
<08104> (8802)
the sabbath
<07676>
from polluting
<02490> (8763)
it, and taketh hold
<02388> (8688)
of my covenant
<01285>_;
Even them will I bring
<0935> (8689)
to my holy
<06944>
mountain
<02022>_,
and make them joyful
<08055> (8765)
in my house
<01004>
of prayer
<08605>_:
their burnt offerings
<05930>
and their sacrifices
<02077>
[shall be] accepted
<07522>
upon mine altar
<04196>_;
for mine house
<01004>
shall be called
<07121> (8735)
an house
<01004>
of prayer
<08605>
for all people
<05971>_.
The Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>
which gathereth
<06908> (8764)
the outcasts
<01760> (8737)
of Israel
<03478>
saith
<05002> (8803)_,
Yet will I gather
<06908> (8762)
[others] to him, beside those that are gathered
<06908> (8737)
unto him. {beside...: Heb. to his gathered}
All ye beasts
<02416>
of the field
<07704>_,
come
<0857> (8798)
to devour
<0398> (8800)_,
[yea], all ye beasts
<02416>
in the forest
<03293>_.
His watchmen
<06822> (8802)
[are] blind
<05787>_:
they are all ignorant
<03045> (8804)_,
they [are] all dumb
<0483>
dogs
<03611>_,
they cannot
<03201> (8799)
bark
<05024> (8800)_;
sleeping
<01957> (8802)_,
lying down
<07901> (8802)_,
loving
<0157> (8802)
to slumber
<05123> (8800)_.
{sleeping: or, dreaming, or, talking in their sleep}
Yea, [they are] greedy
<05794> <05315>
dogs
<03611>
[which] can
<03045> (8804)
never have
<03045> (8804)
enough
<07654>_,
and they [are] shepherds
<07462> (8802)
[that] cannot understand
<0995> (8687)_:
they all look
<06437> (8804)
to their own way
<01870>_,
every one
<0376>
for his gain
<01215>_,
from his quarter
<07097>_.
{greedy: Heb. strong of appetite} {can...: Heb. know not to be satisfied}
Come
<0857> (8798)
ye, [say they], I will fetch
<03947> (8799)
wine
<03196>_,
and we will fill
<05433> (8799)
ourselves with strong drink
<07941>_;
and to morrow
<04279>
shall be as this day
<03117>_,
[and] much
<03966>
more
<03499>
abundant
<01419>_.
The righteous
<06662>
perisheth
<06> (8804)_,
and no man
<0376>
layeth
<07760> (8802)
[it] to heart
<03820>_:
and merciful
<02617>
men
<0582>
[are] taken away
<0622> (8737)_,
none considering
<0995> (8688)
that the righteous
<06662>
is taken away
<0622> (8738)
from
<06440>
the evil
<07451>
[to come]. {merciful...: Heb. men of kindness, or, godliness} {from...: or, from that which is evil}
He shall enter
<0935> (8799)
into peace
<07965>_:
they shall rest
<05117> (8799)
in their beds
<04904>_,
[each one] walking
<01980> (8802)
[in] his uprightness
<05228>_.
{enter into: or, go in} {in his...: or, before him}
But draw near
<07126> (8798)
hither, ye sons
<01121>
of the sorceress
<06049> (8781)_,
the seed
<02233>
of the adulterer
<05003> (8764)
and the whore
<02181> (8799)_.
Against whom do ye sport
<06026> (8691)
yourselves? against whom make ye a wide
<07337> (8686)
mouth
<06310>_,
[and] draw out
<0748> (8686)
the tongue
<03956>_?
[are] ye not children
<03206>
of transgression
<06588>_,
a seed
<02233>
of falsehood
<08267>_,
Enflaming
<02552> (8737)
yourselves with idols
<0410>
under every green
<07488>
tree
<06086>_,
slaying
<07819> (8802)
the children
<03206>
in the valleys
<05158>
under the clifts
<05585>
of the rocks
<05553>_?
{with...: or, among the oaks}
Among the smooth
<02511>
[stones] of the stream
<05158>
[is] thy portion
<02506>_;
they, they [are] thy lot
<01486>_:
even to them hast thou poured
<08210> (8804)
a drink offering
<05262>_,
thou hast offered
<05927> (8689)
a meat offering
<04503>_.
Should I receive comfort
<05162> (8735)
in these?
Upon a lofty
<01364>
and high
<05375> (8737)
mountain
<02022>
hast thou set
<07760> (8804)
thy bed
<04904>_:
even thither wentest thou up
<05927> (8804)
to offer
<02076> (8800)
sacrifice
<02077>_.
Behind
<0310>
the doors
<01817>
also and the posts
<04201>
hast thou set up
<07760> (8804)
thy remembrance
<02146>_:
for thou hast discovered
<01540> (8765)
[thyself to another] than me, and art gone up
<05927> (8799)_;
thou hast enlarged
<07337> (8689)
thy bed
<04904>_,
and made
<03772> (8799)
thee [a covenant] with them; thou lovedst
<0157> (8804)
their bed
<04904>
where
<03027>
thou sawest
<02372> (8804)
[it]. {made...: or, hewed it for thyself larger than theirs} {where...: or, thou providedst room}
And thou wentest
<07788> (8799)
to the king
<04428>
with ointment
<08081>_,
and didst increase
<07235> (8686)
thy perfumes
<07547>_,
and didst send
<07971> (8762)
thy messengers
<06735>
far off
<07350>_,
and didst debase
<08213> (8686)
[thyself even] unto hell
<07585>_.
{thou...: or, thou respectedst}
Thou art wearied
<03021> (8804)
in the greatness
<07230>
of thy way
<01870>_;
[yet] saidst
<0559> (8804)
thou not, There is no hope
<02976> (8737)_:
thou hast found
<04672> (8804)
the life
<02416>
of thine hand
<03027>_;
therefore thou wast not grieved
<02470> (8804)_.
{life: or, living}
And of whom hast thou been afraid
<01672> (8804)
or feared
<03372> (8799)_,
that thou hast lied
<03576> (8762)_,
and hast not remembered
<02142> (8804)
me, nor laid
<07760> (8804)
[it] to thy heart
<03820>_?
have not I held my peace
<02814> (8688)
even of old
<05769>_,
and thou fearest
<03372> (8799)
me not?
I will declare
<05046> (8686)
thy righteousness
<06666>_,
and thy works
<04639>_;
for they shall not profit
<03276> (8686)
thee.
When thou criest
<02199> (8800)_,
let thy companies
<06899>
deliver
<05337> (8686)
thee; but the wind
<07307>
shall carry them all away
<05375> (8799)_;
vanity
<01892>
shall take
<03947> (8799)
[them]: but he that putteth his trust
<02620> (8802)
in me shall possess
<05157> (8799)
the land
<0776>_,
and shall inherit
<03423> (8799)
my holy
<06944>
mountain
<02022>_;
And shall say
<0559> (8804)_,
Cast ye up
<05549> (8798)_,
cast ye up
<05549> (8798)_,
prepare
<06437> (8761)
the way
<01870>_,
take up
<07311> (8685)
the stumblingblock
<04383>
out of the way
<01870>
of my people
<05971>_.
For thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the high
<07311> (8802)
and lofty One
<05375> (8737)
that inhabiteth
<07931> (8802)
eternity
<05703>_,
whose name
<08034>
[is] Holy
<06918>_;
I dwell
<07931> (8799)
in the high
<04791>
and holy
<06918>
[place], with him also [that is] of a contrite
<01793>
and humble
<08217>
spirit
<07307>_,
to revive
<02421> (8687)
the spirit
<07307>
of the humble
<08217>_,
and to revive
<02421> (8687)
the heart
<03820>
of the contrite ones
<01792> (8737)_.
For I will not contend
<07378> (8799)
for ever
<05769>_,
neither will I be always
<05331>
wroth
<07107> (8799)_:
for the spirit
<07307>
should fail
<05848> (8799)
before
<06440>
me, and the souls
<05397>
[which] I have made
<06213> (8804)_.
For the iniquity
<05771>
of his covetousness
<01215>
was I wroth
<07107> (8804)_,
and smote
<05221> (8686)
him: I hid
<05641> (8687)
me, and was wroth
<07107> (8799)_,
and he went on
<03212> (8799)
frowardly
<07726>
in the way
<01870>
of his heart
<03820>_.
{frowardly: Heb. turning away}
I have seen
<07200> (8804)
his ways
<01870>_,
and will heal
<07495> (8799)
him: I will lead
<05148> (8686)
him also, and restore
<07999> (8762)
comforts
<05150>
unto him and to his mourners
<057>_.
I create
<01254> (8802)
the fruit
<05108>
of the lips
<08193>_;
Peace
<07965>_,
peace
<07965>
to [him that is] far off
<07350>_,
and to [him that is] near
<07138>_,
saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_;
and I will heal
<07495> (8804)
him.
But the wicked
<07563>
[are] like the troubled
<01644> (8737)
sea
<03220>_,
when it cannot
<03201> (8799)
rest
<08252> (8687)_,
whose waters
<04325>
cast up
<01644> (8799)
mire
<07516>
and dirt
<02916>_.
[There is] no peace
<07965>_,
saith
<0559> (8804)
my God
<0430>_,
to the wicked
<07563>_.
Cry
<07121> (8798)
aloud
<01627>_,
spare
<02820> (8799)
not, lift
<07311> (8685)
up thy voice
<06963>
like a trumpet
<07782>_,
and shew
<05046> (8685)
my people
<05971>
their transgression
<06588>_,
and the house
<01004>
of Jacob
<03290>
their sins
<02403>_.
{aloud: Heb. with the throat}
Yet they seek
<01875> (8799)
me daily
<03117> <03117>_,
and delight
<02654> (8799)
to know
<01847>
my ways
<01870>_,
as a nation
<01471>
that did
<06213> (8804)
righteousness
<06666>_,
and forsook
<05800> (8804)
not the ordinance
<04941>
of their God
<0430>_:
they ask
<07592> (8799)
of me the ordinances
<04941>
of justice
<06664>_;
they take delight
<02654> (8799)
in approaching
<07132>
to God
<0430>_.
Wherefore have we fasted
<06684> (8804)_,
[say they], and thou seest
<07200> (8804)
not? [wherefore] have we afflicted
<06031> (8765)
our soul
<05315>_,
and thou takest no knowledge
<03045> (8799)_?
Behold, in the day
<03117>
of your fast
<06685>
ye find
<04672> (8799)
pleasure
<02656>_,
and exact
<05065> (8799)
all your labours
<06092>_.
{labours: or, things wherewith ye grieve others: Heb. griefs}
Behold, ye fast
<06684> (8799)
for strife
<07379>
and debate
<04683>_,
and to smite
<05221> (8687)
with the fist
<0106>
of wickedness
<07562>_:
ye shall not fast
<06684> (8799)
as [ye do this] day
<03117>_,
to make your voice
<06963>
to be heard
<08085> (8687)
on high
<04791>_.
{ye shall...: or, ye fast not as this day}
Is it such a fast
<06685>
that I have chosen
<0977> (8799)_?
a day
<03117>
for a man
<0120>
to afflict
<06031> (8763)
his soul
<05315>_?
[is it] to bow down
<03721> (8800)
his head
<07218>
as a bulrush
<0100>_,
and to spread
<03331> (8686)
sackcloth
<08242>
and ashes
<0665>
[under him]? wilt thou call
<07121> (8799)
this
<02088>
a fast
<06685>_,
and an acceptable
<07522>
day
<03117>
to the LORD
<03068>_?
{a day...: or, to afflict his soul for a day?}
[Is] not this the fast
<06685>
that I have chosen
<0977> (8799)_?
to loose
<06605> (8763)
the bands
<02784>
of wickedness
<07562>_,
to undo
<05425> (8687)
the heavy
<04133>
burdens
<092>_,
and to let the oppressed
<07533> (8803)
go
<07971> (8763)
free
<02670>_,
and that ye break
<05423> (8762)
every yoke
<04133>_?
{the heavy...: Heb. the bundles of the yoke} {oppressed: Heb. broken}
[Is it] not to deal
<06536> (8800)
thy bread
<03899>
to the hungry
<07457>_,
and that thou bring
<0935> (8686)
the poor
<06041>
that are cast out
<04788>
to thy house
<01004>_?
when thou seest
<07200> (8799)
the naked
<06174>_,
that thou cover
<03680> (8765)
him; and that thou hide
<05956> (8691)
not thyself from thine own flesh
<01320>_?
{cast...: or, afflicted}
Then shall thy light
<0216>
break forth
<01234> (8735)
as the morning
<07837>_,
and thine health
<0724>
shall spring forth
<06779> (8799)
speedily
<04120>_:
and thy righteousness
<06664>
shall go
<01980> (8804)
before
<06440>
thee; the glory
<03519>
of the LORD
<03068>
shall be thy rereward
<0622> (8799)_.
{be...: Heb. gather thee up}
Then shalt thou call
<07121> (8799)_,
and the LORD
<03068>
shall answer
<06030> (8799)_;
thou shalt cry
<07768> (8762)_,
and he shall say
<0559> (8799)_,
Here I [am]. If thou take away
<05493> (8686)
from the midst
<08432>
of thee the yoke
<04133>_,
the putting forth
<07971> (8800)
of the finger
<0676>_,
and speaking
<01696> (8763)
vanity
<0205>_;
And [if] thou draw out
<06329> (8686)
thy soul
<05315>
to the hungry
<07457>_,
and satisfy
<07646> (8686)
the afflicted
<06031> (8737)
soul
<05315>_;
then shall thy light
<0216>
rise
<02224> (8804)
in obscurity
<02822>_,
and thy darkness
<0653>
[be] as the noonday
<06672>_:
And the LORD
<03068>
shall guide
<05148> (8804)
thee continually
<08548>_,
and satisfy
<07646> (8689)
thy soul
<05315>
in drought
<06710>_,
and make fat
<02502> (8686)
thy bones
<06106>_:
and thou shalt be like a watered
<07302>
garden
<01588>_,
and like a spring
<04161>
of water
<04325>_,
whose waters
<04325>
fail
<03576> (8762)
not. {drought: Heb. droughts} {fail: Heb. lie, or, deceive}
And [they that shall be] of thee shall build
<01129> (8804)
the old
<05769>
waste places
<02723>_:
thou shalt raise up
<06965> (8787)
the foundations
<04146>
of many
<01755>
generations
<01755>_;
and thou shalt be called
<07121> (8795)_,
The repairer
<01443> (8802)
of the breach
<06556>_,
The restorer
<07725> (8789)
of paths
<05410>
to dwell in
<03427> (8800)_.
If thou turn away
<07725> (8686)
thy foot
<07272>
from the sabbath
<07676>_,
[from] doing
<06213> (8800)
thy pleasure
<02656>
on my holy
<06944>
day
<03117>_;
and call
<07121> (8804)
the sabbath
<07676>
a delight
<06027>_,
the holy
<06918>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
honourable
<03513> (8794)_;
and shalt honour
<03513> (8765)
him, not doing
<06213> (8800)
thine own ways
<01870>_,
nor finding
<04672> (8800)
thine own pleasure
<02656>_,
nor speaking
<01696> (8763)
[thine own] words
<01697>_:
Then shalt thou delight
<06026> (8691)
thyself in the LORD
<03068>_;
and I will cause thee to ride
<07392> (8689)
upon the high places
<01116>
of the earth
<0776>_,
and feed
<0398> (8689)
thee with the heritage
<05159>
of Jacob
<03290>
thy father
<01>_:
for the mouth
<06310>
of the LORD
<03068>
hath spoken
<01696> (8765)
[it].
Behold
<02005>_,
the LORD'S
<03068>
hand
<03027>
is not shortened
<07114> (8804)_,
that it cannot save
<03467> (8687)_;
neither his ear
<0241>
heavy
<03513> (8804)_,
that it cannot hear
<08085> (8800)_:
But your iniquities
<05771>
have separated
<0914> (8688)
between
<0996>
you and your God
<0430>_,
and your sins
<02403>
have hid
<05641> (8689)
[his] face
<06440>
from you, that he will not hear
<08085> (8800)_.
{have hid: or, have made him hide}
For your hands
<03709>
are defiled
<01351> (8738)
with blood
<01818>_,
and your fingers
<0676>
with iniquity
<05771>_;
your lips
<08193>
have spoken
<01696> (8765)
lies
<08267>_,
your tongue
<03956>
hath muttered
<01897> (8799)
perverseness
<05766>_.
None calleth
<07121> (8802)
for justice
<06664>_,
nor [any] pleadeth
<08199> (8737)
for truth
<0530>_:
they trust
<0982> (8800)
in vanity
<08414>_,
and speak
<01696> (8763)
lies
<07723>_;
they conceive
<02029> (8800)
mischief
<05999>_,
and bring forth
<03205> (8687)
iniquity
<0205>_.
They hatch
<01234> (8765)
cockatrice
<06848>_'
eggs
<01000>_,
and weave
<0707> (8799)
the spider's
<05908>
web
<06980>_:
he that eateth
<0398> (8802)
of their eggs
<01000>
dieth
<04191> (8799)_,
and that which is crushed
<02116>
breaketh out
<01234> (8735)
into a viper
<0660>_.
{cockatrice': or, adder's} {crushed...: or, sprinkled is as if there brake out a viper}
Their webs
<06980>
shall not become garments
<0899>_,
neither shall they cover
<03680> (8691)
themselves with their works
<04639>_:
their works
<04639>
[are] works
<04639>
of iniquity
<0205>_,
and the act
<06467>
of violence
<02555>
[is] in their hands
<03709>_.
Their feet
<07272>
run
<07323> (8799)
to evil
<07451>_,
and they make haste
<04116> (8762)
to shed
<08210> (8800)
innocent
<05355>
blood
<01818>_:
their thoughts
<04284>
[are] thoughts
<04284>
of iniquity
<0205>_;
wasting
<07701>
and destruction
<07667>
[are] in their paths
<04546>_.
{destruction: Heb. breaking}
The way
<01870>
of peace
<07965>
they know
<03045> (8804)
not; and [there is] no judgment
<04941>
in their goings
<04570>_:
they have made them crooked
<06140> (8765)
paths
<05410>_:
whosoever goeth
<01869> (8802)
therein shall not know
<03045> (8804)
peace
<07965>_.
{judgment: or, right}
Therefore is judgment
<04941>
far
<07368> (8804)
from us, neither doth justice
<06666>
overtake
<05381> (8686)
us: we wait
<06960> (8762)
for light
<0216>_,
but behold obscurity
<02822>_;
for brightness
<05054>_,
[but] we walk
<01980> (8762)
in darkness
<0653>_.
We grope
<01659> (8762)
for the wall
<07023>
like the blind
<05787>_,
and we grope
<01659> (8762)
as if [we had] no eyes
<05869>_:
we stumble
<03782> (8804)
at noonday
<06672>
as in the night
<05399>_;
[we are] in desolate
<0820>
places as dead
<04191> (8801)
[men].
We roar
<01993> (8799)
all like bears
<01677>_,
and mourn
<01897> (8799)
sore
<01897> (8800)
like doves
<03123>_:
we look
<06960> (8762)
for judgment
<04941>_,
but [there is] none; for salvation
<03444>_,
[but] it is far off
<07368> (8804)
from us.
For our transgressions
<06588>
are multiplied
<07231> (8804)
before thee, and our sins
<02403>
testify
<06030> (8804)
against us: for our transgressions
<06588>
[are] with us; and [as for] our iniquities
<05771>_,
we know
<03045> (8804)
them;
In transgressing
<06586> (8800)
and lying
<03584> (8763)
against the LORD
<03068>_,
and departing away
<05253> (8800)
from
<0310>
our God
<0430>_,
speaking
<01696> (8763)
oppression
<06233>
and revolt
<05627>_,
conceiving
<02029> (8780)
and uttering
<01897> (8774)
from the heart
<03820>
words
<01697>
of falsehood
<08267>_.
And judgment
<04941>
is turned away
<05253> (8717)
backward
<0268>_,
and justice
<06666>
standeth
<05975> (8799)
afar off
<07350>_:
for truth
<0571>
is fallen
<03782> (8804)
in the street
<07339>_,
and equity
<05229>
cannot
<03201> (8799)
enter
<0935> (8800)_.
Yea, truth
<0571>
faileth
<05737> (8737)_;
and he [that] departeth
<05493> (8804)
from evil
<07451>
maketh himself a prey
<07997> (8711)_:
and the LORD
<03068>
saw
<07200> (8799)
[it], and it displeased
<03415> (8799) <05869>
him that [there was] no judgment
<04941>_.
{maketh...: or, is accounted mad} {it displeased...: Heb. it was evil in his eyes}
And he saw
<07200> (8799)
that [there was] no man
<0376>_,
and wondered
<08074> (8709)
that [there was] no intercessor
<06293> (8688)_:
therefore his arm
<02220>
brought salvation
<03467> (8686)
unto him; and his righteousness
<06666>_,
it sustained
<05564> (8804)
him.
For he put on
<03847> (8799)
righteousness
<06666>
as a breastplate
<08302>_,
and an helmet
<03553>
of salvation
<03444>
upon his head
<07218>_;
and he put on
<03847> (8799)
the garments
<0899>
of vengeance
<05359>
[for] clothing
<08516>_,
and was clad
<05844> (8799)
with zeal
<07068>
as a cloke
<04598>_.
According to
<05921>
[their] deeds
<01578>_,
accordingly he will repay
<07999> (8762)_,
fury
<02534>
to his adversaries
<06862>_,
recompence
<01576>
to his enemies
<0341> (8802)_;
to the islands
<0339>
he will repay
<07999> (8762)
recompence
<01576>_.
{deeds: Heb. recompences}
So shall they fear
<03372> (8799)
the name
<08034>
of the LORD
<03068>
from the west
<04628>_,
and his glory
<03519>
from the rising
<04217>
of the sun
<08121>_.
When the enemy
<06862>
shall come in
<0935> (8799)
like a flood
<05104>_,
the Spirit
<07307>
of the LORD
<03068>
shall lift up a standard
<05127> (8790)
against him. {lift...: or, put him to flight}
And the Redeemer
<01350> (8802)
shall come
<0935> (8804)
to Zion
<06726>_,
and unto them that turn
<07725> (8802)
from transgression
<06588>
in Jacob
<03290>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
As for me, this [is] my covenant
<01285>
with them, saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_;
My spirit
<07307>
that [is] upon thee, and my words
<01697>
which I have put
<07760> (8804)
in thy mouth
<06310>_,
shall not depart
<04185> (8799)
out of thy mouth
<06310>_,
nor out of the mouth
<06310>
of thy seed
<02233>_,
nor out of the mouth
<06310>
of thy seed's
<02233>
seed
<02233>_,
saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
from henceforth and for
<05704>
ever
<05769>_.
Arise
<06965> (8798)_,
shine
<0215> (8798)_;
for thy light
<0216>
is come
<0935> (8804)_,
and the glory
<03519>
of the LORD
<03068>
is risen
<02224> (8804)
upon thee. {shine...: or, be enlightened; for thy light cometh}
For, behold, the darkness
<02822>
shall cover
<03680> (8762)
the earth
<0776>_,
and gross darkness
<06205>
the people
<03816>_:
but the LORD
<03068>
shall arise
<02224> (8799)
upon thee, and his glory
<03519>
shall be seen
<07200> (8735)
upon thee.
And the Gentiles
<01471>
shall come
<01980> (8804)
to thy light
<0216>_,
and kings
<04428>
to the brightness
<05051>
of thy rising
<02225>_.
Lift up
<05375> (8798)
thine eyes
<05869>
round about
<05439>_,
and see
<07200> (8798)_:
all they gather themselves together
<06908> (8738)_,
they come
<0935> (8804)
to thee: thy sons
<01121>
shall come
<0935> (8799)
from far
<07350>_,
and thy daughters
<01323>
shall be nursed
<0539> (8735)
at [thy] side
<06654>_.
Then thou shalt see
<07200> (8799) (8675) <03372> (8799)_,
and flow together
<05102> (8804)_,
and thine heart
<03824>
shall fear
<06342> (8804)_,
and be enlarged
<07337> (8804)_;
because the abundance
<01995>
of the sea
<03220>
shall be converted
<02015> (8735)
unto thee, the forces
<02428>
of the Gentiles
<01471>
shall come
<0935> (8799)
unto thee. {abundance...: or, noise of the sea shall be turned toward thee} {forces: or, wealth}
The multitude
<08229>
of camels
<01581>
shall cover
<03680> (8762)
thee, the dromedaries
<01070>
of Midian
<04080>
and Ephah
<05891>_;
all they from Sheba
<07614>
shall come
<0935> (8799)_:
they shall bring
<05375> (8799)
gold
<02091>
and incense
<03828>_;
and they shall shew forth
<01319> (8762)
the praises
<08416>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
All the flocks
<06629>
of Kedar
<06938>
shall be gathered together
<06908> (8735)
unto thee, the rams
<0352>
of Nebaioth
<05032>
shall minister
<08334> (8762)
unto thee: they shall come up
<05927> (8799)
with acceptance
<07522>
on mine altar
<04196>_,
and I will glorify
<06286> (8762)
the house
<01004>
of my glory
<08597>_.
Who [are] these [that] fly
<05774> (8799)
as a cloud
<05645>_,
and as the doves
<03123>
to their windows
<0699>_?
Surely the isles
<0339>
shall wait
<06960> (8762)
for me, and the ships
<0591>
of Tarshish
<08659>
first
<07223>_,
to bring
<0935> (8687)
thy sons
<01121>
from far
<07350>_,
their silver
<03701>
and their gold
<02091>
with them, unto the name
<08034>
of the LORD
<03068>
thy God
<0430>_,
and to the Holy One
<06918>
of Israel
<03478>_,
because he hath glorified
<06286> (8765)
thee.
And the sons
<01121>
of strangers
<05236>
shall build up
<01129> (8804)
thy walls
<02346>_,
and their kings
<04428>
shall minister
<08334> (8762)
unto thee: for in my wrath
<07110>
I smote
<05221> (8689)
thee, but in my favour
<07522>
have I had mercy
<07355> (8765)
on thee.
Therefore thy gates
<08179>
shall be open
<06605> (8765)
continually
<08548>_;
they shall not be shut
<05462> (8735)
day
<03119>
nor night
<03915>_;
that [men] may bring
<0935> (8687)
unto thee the forces
<02428>
of the Gentiles
<01471>_,
and [that] their kings
<04428>
[may be] brought
<05090> (8803)_.
{forces: or, wealth}
For the nation
<01471>
and kingdom
<04467>
that will not serve
<05647> (8799)
thee shall perish
<06> (8799)_;
yea, [those] nations
<01471>
shall be utterly
<02717> (8800)
wasted
<02717> (8799)_.
The glory
<03519>
of Lebanon
<03844>
shall come
<0935> (8799)
unto thee, the fir tree
<01265>_,
the pine tree
<08410>_,
and the box
<08391>
together
<03162>_,
to beautify
<06286> (8763)
the place
<04725>
of my sanctuary
<04720>_;
and I will make the place
<04725>
of my feet
<07272>
glorious
<03513> (8762)_.
The sons
<01121>
also of them that afflicted
<06031> (8764)
thee shall come
<01980> (8804)
bending
<07817> (8800)
unto thee; and all they that despised
<05006> (8764)
thee shall bow themselves down
<07812> (8694)
at the soles
<03709>
of thy feet
<07272>_;
and they shall call
<07121> (8804)
thee, The city
<05892>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
The Zion
<06726>
of the Holy One
<06918>
of Israel
<03478>_.
Whereas
<08478>
thou hast been forsaken
<05800> (8803)
and hated
<08130> (8803)_,
so that no man went through
<05674> (8802)
[thee], I will make
<07760> (8804)
thee an eternal
<05769>
excellency
<01347>_,
a joy
<04885>
of many
<01755>
generations
<01755>_.
Thou shalt also suck
<03243> (8804)
the milk
<02461>
of the Gentiles
<01471>_,
and shalt suck
<03243> (8799)
the breast
<07699>
of kings
<04428>_:
and thou shalt 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>_.
For brass
<05178>
I will bring
<0935> (8686)
gold
<02091>_,
and for iron
<01270>
I will bring
<0935> (8686)
silver
<03701>_,
and for wood
<06086>
brass
<05178>_,
and for stones
<068>
iron
<01270>_:
I will also make
<07760> (8804)
thy officers
<06486>
peace
<07965>_,
and thine exactors
<05065> (8802)
righteousness
<06666>_.
Violence
<02555>
shall no more be heard
<08085> (8735)
in thy land
<0776>_,
wasting
<07701>
nor destruction
<07667>
within thy borders
<01366>_;
but thou shalt call
<07121> (8804)
thy walls
<02346>
Salvation
<03444>_,
and thy gates
<08179>
Praise
<08416>_.
The sun
<08121>
shall be no more thy light
<0216>
by day
<03119>_;
neither for brightness
<05051>
shall the moon
<03394>
give light
<0216>
unto thee: but the LORD
<03068>
shall be unto thee an everlasting
<05769>
light
<0215> (8686)_,
and thy God
<0430>
thy glory
<08597>_.
Thy sun
<08121>
shall no more go down
<0935> (8799)_;
neither shall thy moon
<03391>
withdraw
<0622> (8735)
itself: for the LORD
<03068>
shall be thine everlasting
<05769>
light
<0216>_,
and the days
<03117>
of thy mourning
<060>
shall be ended
<07999> (8804)_.
Thy people
<05971>
also [shall be] all righteous
<06662>_:
they shall inherit
<03423> (8799)
the land
<0776>
for ever
<05769>_,
the branch
<05342>
of my planting
<04302>_,
the work
<04639>
of my hands
<03027>_,
that I may be glorified
<06286> (8692)_.
A little one
<06996>
shall become a thousand
<0505>_,
and a small one
<06810>
a strong
<06099>
nation
<01471>_:
I the LORD
<03068>
will hasten
<02363> (8686)
it in his time
<06256>_.
The Spirit
<07307>
of the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>
[is] upon me; because the LORD
<03068>
hath anointed
<04886> (8804)
me to preach good tidings
<01319> (8763)
unto the meek
<06035>_;
he hath sent
<07971> (8804)
me to bind up
<02280> (8800)
the brokenhearted
<07665> (8737) <03820>_,
to proclaim
<07121> (8800)
liberty
<01865>
to the captives
<07617> (8803)_,
and the opening of the prison
<06495>
to [them that are] bound
<0631> (8803)_;
To proclaim
<07121> (8800)
the acceptable
<07522>
year
<08141>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and the day
<03117>
of vengeance
<05359>
of our God
<0430>_;
to comfort
<05162> (8763)
all that mourn
<057>_;
To appoint
<07760> (8800)
unto them that mourn
<057>
in Zion
<06726>_,
to give
<05414> (8800)
unto them beauty
<06287>
for ashes
<0665>_,
the oil
<08081>
of joy
<08342>
for mourning
<060>_,
the garment
<04594>
of praise
<08416>
for the spirit
<07307>
of heaviness
<03544>_;
that they might be called
<07121> (8795)
trees
<0352>
of righteousness
<06664>_,
the planting
<04302>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
that he might be glorified
<06286> (8692)_.
And they shall build
<01129> (8804)
the old
<05769>
wastes
<02723>_,
they shall raise up
<06965> (8787)
the former
<07223>
desolations
<08074> (8802)_,
and they shall repair
<02318> (8765)
the waste
<02721>
cities
<05892>_,
the desolations
<08074> (8802)
of many
<01755>
generations
<01755>_.
And strangers
<02114> (8801)
shall stand
<05975> (8804)
and feed
<07462> (8804)
your flocks
<06629>_,
and the sons
<01121>
of the alien
<05236>
[shall be] your plowmen
<0406>
and your vinedressers
<03755>_.
But ye shall be named
<07121> (8735)
the Priests
<03548>
of the LORD
<03068>_:
[men] shall call
<0559> (8735)
you the Ministers
<08334> (8764)
of our God
<0430>_:
ye shall eat
<0398> (8799)
the riches
<02428>
of the Gentiles
<01471>_,
and in their glory
<03519>
shall ye boast
<03235> (8691)
yourselves.
For your shame
<01322>
[ye shall have] double
<04932>_;
and [for] confusion
<03639>
they shall rejoice
<07442> (8799)
in their portion
<02506>_:
therefore in their land
<0776>
they shall possess
<03423> (8799)
the double
<04932>_:
everlasting
<05769>
joy
<08057>
shall be unto them.
For I the LORD
<03068>
love
<0157> (8802)
judgment
<04941>_,
I hate
<08130> (8802)
robbery
<01498>
for burnt offering
<05930>_;
and I will direct
<05414> (8804)
their work
<06468>
in truth
<0571>_,
and I will make
<03772> (8799)
an everlasting
<05769>
covenant
<01285>
with them.
And their seed
<02233>
shall be known
<03045> (8738)
among the Gentiles
<01471>_,
and their offspring
<06631>
among
<08432>
the people
<05971>_:
all that see
<07200> (8802)
them shall acknowledge
<05234> (8686)
them, that they [are] the seed
<02233>
[which] the LORD
<03068>
hath blessed
<01288> (8765)_.
I will greatly
<07797> (8800)
rejoice
<07797> (8799)
in the LORD
<03068>_,
my soul
<05315>
shall be joyful
<01523> (8799)
in my God
<0430>_;
for he hath clothed
<03847> (8689)
me with the garments
<0899>
of salvation
<03468>_,
he hath covered
<03271> (8804)
me with the robe
<04598>
of righteousness
<06666>_,
as a bridegroom
<02860>
decketh
<03547> (8762)
[himself] with ornaments
<06287>_,
and as a bride
<03618>
adorneth
<05710> (8799)
[herself] with her jewels
<03627>_.
{decketh: Heb. decketh as a priest}
For as the earth
<0776>
bringeth forth
<03318> (8686)
her bud
<06780>_,
and as the garden
<01593>
causeth the things that are sown
<02221>
in it to spring forth
<06779> (8686)_;
so the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>
will cause righteousness
<06666>
and praise
<08416>
to spring forth
<06779> (8686)
before all the nations
<01471>_.
For Zion's
<06726>
sake will I not hold my peace
<02814> (8799)_,
and for Jerusalem's
<03389>
sake I will not rest
<08252> (8799)_,
until the righteousness
<06664>
thereof go forth
<03318> (8799)
as brightness
<05051>_,
and the salvation
<03444>
thereof as a lamp
<03940>
[that] burneth
<01197> (8799)_.
And the Gentiles
<01471>
shall see
<07200> (8804)
thy righteousness
<06664>_,
and all kings
<04428>
thy glory
<03519>_:
and thou shalt be called
<07121> (8795)
by a new
<02319>
name
<05344> (8799)_,
which the mouth
<06310>
of the LORD
<03068>
shall name
<08034>_.
Thou shalt also be a crown
<05850>
of glory
<08597>
in the hand
<03027>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and a royal
<04410>
diadem
<06797> (8675) <06797>
in the hand
<03709>
of thy God
<0430>_.
Thou shalt no more be termed
<0559> (8735)
Forsaken
<05800> (8803)_;
neither shall thy land
<0776>
any more be termed
<0559> (8735)
Desolate
<08077>_:
but thou shalt be called
<07121> (8735)
Hephzibah
<02657>_,
and thy land
<0776>
Beulah
<01166> (8803)_:
for the LORD
<03068>
delighteth
<02654> (8804)
in thee, and thy land
<0776>
shall be married
<01166> (8735)_.
{Hephzibah: that is, My delight is in her} {Beulah: that is, Married}
For [as] a young man
<0970>
marrieth
<01166> (8799)
a virgin
<01330>_,
[so] shall thy sons
<01121>
marry
<01166> (8799)
thee: and [as] the bridegroom
<02860>
rejoiceth
<04885>
over the bride
<03618>_,
[so] shall thy God
<0430>
rejoice
<07797> (8799)
over thee. {as the...: Heb. with the joy of the bridegroom}
I have set
<06485> (8689)
watchmen
<08104> (8802)
upon thy walls
<02346>_,
O Jerusalem
<03389>_,
[which] shall never
<08548>
hold their peace
<02814> (8799)
day
<03117>
nor night
<03915>_:
ye that make mention
<02142> (8688)
of the LORD
<03068>_,
keep not silence
<01824>_,
{make...: or, are the LORD's remembrancers}
And give
<05414> (8799)
him no rest
<01824>_,
till he establish
<03559> (8787)_,
and till he make
<07760> (8799)
Jerusalem
<03389>
a praise
<08416>
in the earth
<0776>_.
{rest: Heb. silence}
The LORD
<03068>
hath sworn
<07650> (8738)
by his right hand
<03225>_,
and by the arm
<02220>
of his strength
<05797>_,
Surely I will
<0518>
no more give
<05414> (8799)
thy corn
<01715>
[to be] meat
<03978>
for thine enemies
<0341> (8802)_;
and the sons
<01121>
of the stranger
<05236>
shall not drink
<08354> (8799)
thy wine
<08492>_,
for the which thou hast laboured
<03021> (8804)_:
{Surely...: Heb. If I give, etc}
But they that have gathered
<0622> (8764)
it shall eat
<0398> (8799)
it, and praise
<01984> (8765)
the LORD
<03068>_;
and they that have brought it together
<06908> (8764)
shall drink
<08354> (8799)
it in the courts
<02691>
of my holiness
<06944>_.
Go through
<05674> (8798)_,
go through
<05674> (8798)
the gates
<08179>_;
prepare
<06437> (8761)
ye the way
<01870>
of the people
<05971>_;
cast up
<05549> (8798)_,
cast up
<05549> (8798)
the highway
<04546>_;
gather out
<05619> (8761)
the stones
<068>_;
lift up
<07311> (8685)
a standard
<05251>
for the people
<05971>_.
Behold, the LORD
<03068>
hath proclaimed
<08085> (8689)
unto the end
<07097>
of the world
<0776>_,
Say
<0559> (8798)
ye to the daughter
<01323>
of Zion
<06726>_,
Behold, thy salvation
<03468>
cometh
<0935> (8802)_;
behold, his reward
<07939>
[is] with him, and his work
<06468>
before
<06440>
him. {work: or, recompence}
And they shall call
<07121> (8804)
them, The holy
<06944>
people
<05971>_,
The redeemed
<01350> (8803)
of the LORD
<03068>_:
and thou shalt be called
<07121> (8735)_,
Sought out
<01875> (8803)_,
A city
<05892>
not forsaken
<05800> (8737)_.
Who [is] this that cometh
<0935> (8802)
from Edom
<0123>_,
with dyed
<02556> (8803)
garments
<0899>
from Bozrah
<01224>_?
this [that is] glorious
<01921> (8803)
in his apparel
<03830>_,
travelling
<06808> (8802)
in the greatness
<07230>
of his strength
<03581>_?
I that speak
<01696> (8764)
in righteousness
<06666>_,
mighty
<07227>
to save
<03467> (8687)_.
{glorious: Heb. decked}
Wherefore [art thou] red
<0122>
in thine apparel
<03830>_,
and thy garments
<0899>
like him that treadeth
<01869> (8802)
in the winefat
<01660>_?
I have trodden
<01869> (8804)
the winepress
<06333>
alone; and of the people
<05971>
[there was] none
<0376>
with me: for I will tread
<01869> (8799)
them in mine anger
<0639>_,
and trample
<07429> (8799)
them in my fury
<02534>_;
and their blood
<05332>
shall be sprinkled
<05137> (8799)
upon my garments
<0899>_,
and I will stain
<01351> (8689)
all my raiment
<04403>_.
For the day
<03117>
of vengeance
<05359>
[is] in mine heart
<03820>_,
and the year
<08141>
of my redeemed
<01350> (8803)
is come
<0935> (8804)_.
And I looked
<05027> (8686)_,
and [there was] none to help
<05826> (8802)_;
and I wondered
<08074> (8709)
that [there was] none to uphold
<05564> (8802)_:
therefore mine own arm
<02220>
brought salvation
<03467> (8686)
unto me; and my fury
<02534>_,
it upheld
<05564> (8804)
me.
And I will tread down
<0947> (8799)
the people
<05971>
in mine anger
<0639>_,
and make them drunk
<07937> (8762)
in my fury
<02534>_,
and I will bring down
<03381> (8686)
their strength
<05332>
to the earth
<0776>_.
I will mention
<02142> (8686)
the lovingkindnesses
<02617>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
[and] the praises
<08416>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
according to all that the LORD
<03068>
hath bestowed
<01580> (8804)
on us, and the great
<07227>
goodness
<02898>
toward the house
<01004>
of Israel
<03478>_,
which he hath bestowed
<01580> (8804)
on them according to his mercies
<07356>_,
and according to the multitude
<07230>
of his lovingkindnesses
<02617>_.
For he said
<0559> (8799)_,
Surely they [are] my people
<05971>_,
children
<01121>
[that] will not lie
<08266> (8762)_:
so he was their Saviour
<03467> (8688)_.
In all their affliction
<06869>
he was afflicted
<06862>_,
and the angel
<04397>
of his presence
<06440>
saved
<03467> (8689)
them: in his love
<0160>
and in his pity
<02551>
he redeemed
<01350> (8804)
them; and he bare
<05190> (8762)
them, and carried
<05375> (8762)
them all the days
<03117>
of old
<05769>_.
But they rebelled
<04784> (8804)_,
and vexed
<06087> (8765)
his holy
<06944>
Spirit
<07307>_:
therefore he was turned
<02015> (8735)
to be their enemy
<0341> (8802)_,
[and] he fought
<03898> (8738)
against them.
Then he remembered
<02142> (8799)
the days
<03117>
of old
<05769>_,
Moses
<04872>_,
[and] his people
<05971>_,
[saying], Where [is] he that brought them up
<05927> (8688)
out of the sea
<03220>
with the shepherd
<07462> (8802)
of his flock
<06629>_?
where [is] he that put
<07760> (8802)
his holy
<06944>
Spirit
<07307>
within
<07130>
him? {shepherd: or, shepherds}
That led
<03212> (8688)
[them] by the right hand
<03225>
of Moses
<04872>
with his glorious
<08597>
arm
<02220>_,
dividing
<01234> (8802)
the water
<04325>
before
<06440>
them, to make
<06213> (8800)
himself an everlasting
<05769>
name
<08034>_?
That led
<03212> (8688)
them through the deep
<08415>_,
as an horse
<05483>
in the wilderness
<04057>_,
[that] they should not stumble
<03782> (8735)_?
As a beast
<0929>
goeth down
<03381> (8799)
into the valley
<01237>_,
the Spirit
<07307>
of the LORD
<03068>
caused him to rest
<05117> (8686)_:
so didst thou lead
<05090> (8765)
thy people
<05971>_,
to make
<06213> (8800)
thyself a glorious
<08597>
name
<08034>_.
Look down
<05027> (8685)
from heaven
<08064>_,
and behold
<07200> (8798)
from the habitation
<02073>
of thy holiness
<06944>
and of thy glory
<08597>_:
where [is] thy zeal
<07068>
and thy strength
<01369>_,
the sounding
<01995>
of thy bowels
<04578>
and of thy mercies
<07356>
toward me? are they restrained
<0662> (8694)_?
{the sounding: or, the multitude}
Doubtless
<03588>
thou [art] our father
<01>_,
though Abraham
<085>
be ignorant
<03808> <03045> (8804)
of us, and Israel
<03478>
acknowledge
<05234> (8686)
us not: thou, O LORD
<03068>_,
[art] our father
<01>_,
our redeemer
<01350> (8802)_;
thy name
<08034>
[is] from everlasting
<05769>_.
{our redeemer...: or, our redeemer from everlasting is thy name}
O LORD
<03068>_,
why hast thou made us to err
<08582> (8686)
from thy ways
<01870>_,
[and] hardened
<07188> (8686)
our heart
<03820>
from thy fear
<03374>_?
Return
<07725> (8798)
for thy servants
<05650>_'
sake, the tribes
<07626>
of thine inheritance
<05159>_.
The people
<05971>
of thy holiness
<06944>
have possessed
<03423> (8804)
[it] but a little while
<04705>_:
our adversaries
<06862>
have trodden down
<0947> (8790)
thy sanctuary
<04720>_.
We are [thine]: thou never
<05769>
barest rule
<04910> (8804)
over them; they were not called
<07121> (8738)
by thy name
<08034>_.
{they...: Heb. thy name was not called upon them}
Oh
<03863>
that thou wouldest rend
<07167> (8804)
the heavens
<08064>_,
that thou wouldest come down
<03381> (8804)_,
that the mountains
<02022>
might flow down
<02151> (8738)
at thy presence
<06440>_,
As [when] the melting
<02003>
fire
<0784>
burneth
<06919> (8800)_,
the fire
<0784>
causeth the waters
<04325>
to boil
<01158> (8799)_,
to make thy name
<08034>
known
<03045> (8687)
to thine adversaries
<06862>_,
[that] the nations
<01471>
may tremble
<07264> (8799)
at thy presence
<06440>_!
{the melting...: Heb. the fire of meltings}
When thou didst
<06213> (8800)
terrible things
<03372> (8737)
[which] we looked
<06960> (8762)
not for, thou camest down
<03381> (8804)_,
the mountains
<02022>
flowed down
<02151> (8738)
at thy presence
<06440>_.
For since the beginning of the world
<05769>
[men] have not heard
<08085> (8804)_,
nor perceived by the ear
<0238> (8689)_,
neither hath the eye
<05869>
seen
<07200> (8804)_,
O God
<0430>_,
beside
<02108>
thee, [what] he hath prepared
<06213> (8799)
for him that waiteth
<02442> (8764)
for him. {seen...: or, seen a God beside thee, which doeth so for him, etc}
Thou meetest
<06293> (8804)
him that rejoiceth
<07797> (8801)
and worketh
<06213> (8802)
righteousness
<06664>_,
[those that] remember
<02142> (8799)
thee in thy ways
<01870>_:
behold, thou art wroth
<07107> (8804)_;
for we have sinned
<02398> (8799)_:
in those is continuance
<05769>_,
and we shall be saved
<03467> (8735)_.
But we are all as an unclean
<02931>
[thing], and all our righteousnesses
<06666>
[are] as filthy
<05708>
rags
<0899>_;
and we all do fade
<05034> (8799) (8676) <01101> (8686)
as a leaf
<05929>_;
and our iniquities
<05771>_,
like the wind
<07307>_,
have taken us away
<05375> (8799)_.
And [there is] none that calleth
<07121> (8802)
upon thy name
<08034>_,
that stirreth up
<05782> (8711)
himself to take hold
<02388> (8687)
of thee: for thou hast hid
<05641> (8689)
thy face
<06440>
from us, and hast consumed
<04127> (8799)
us, because
<03027>
of our iniquities
<05771>_.
{consumed: Heb. melted} {because: Heb. by the hand}
But now, O LORD
<03068>_,
thou [art] our father
<01>_;
we [are] the clay
<02563>_,
and thou our potter
<03335> (8802)_;
and we all [are] the work
<04639>
of thy hand
<03027>_.
Be not wroth
<07107> (8799)
very sore
<03966>_,
O LORD
<03068>_,
neither remember
<02142> (8799)
iniquity
<05771>
for ever
<05703>_:
behold, see
<05027> (8685)_,
we beseech thee, we [are] all thy people
<05971>_.
Thy holy
<06944>
cities
<05892>
are a wilderness
<04057>_,
Zion
<06726>
is a wilderness
<04057>_,
Jerusalem
<03389>
a desolation
<08077>_.
Our holy
<06944>
and our beautiful
<08597>
house
<01004>_,
where our fathers
<01>
praised
<01984> (8765)
thee, is burned up
<08316>
with fire
<0784>_:
and all our pleasant things
<04261>
are laid waste
<02723>_.
Wilt thou refrain
<0662> (8691)
thyself for these [things], O LORD
<03068>_?
wilt thou hold thy peace
<02814> (8799)_,
and afflict
<06031> (8762)
us very sore
<03966>_?
I am sought
<01875> (8738)
of [them that] asked
<07592> (8804)
not
<03808>
[for me]; I am found
<04672> (8738)
of [them that] sought
<01245> (8765)
me not
<03808>_:
I said
<0559> (8804)_,
Behold me, behold me, unto a nation
<01471>
[that] was not called
<07121> (8795)
by my name
<08034>_.
I have spread out
<06566> (8765)
my hands
<03027>
all the day
<03117>
unto a rebellious
<05637> (8802)
people
<05971>_,
which walketh
<01980> (8802)
in a way
<01870>
[that was] not good
<02896>_,
after
<0310>
their own thoughts
<04284>_;
A people
<05971>
that provoketh me to anger
<03707> (8688)
continually
<08548>
to my face
<06440>_;
that sacrificeth
<02076> (8802)
in gardens
<01593>_,
and burneth incense
<06999> (8764)
upon altars of brick
<03843>_;
{upon...: Heb. upon bricks}
Which remain
<03427> (8802)
among the graves
<06913>_,
and lodge
<03885> (8799)
in the monuments
<05341> (8803)_,
which eat
<0398> (8802)
swine's
<02386>
flesh
<01320>_,
and broth
<04839> (8675) <06564>
of abominable
<06292>
[things is in] their vessels
<03627>_;
{broth: or, pieces}
Which say
<0559> (8802)_,
Stand
<07126> (8798)
by thyself, come not near
<05066> (8799)
to me; for I am holier
<06942> (8804)
than thou. These [are] a smoke
<06227>
in my nose
<0639>_,
a fire
<0784>
that burneth
<03344> (8802)
all the day
<03117>_.
{nose: or, anger}
Behold, [it is] written
<03789> (8803)
before
<06440>
me: I will not keep silence
<02814> (8799)_,
but will recompense
<07999> (8765)_,
even recompense
<07999> (8765)
into their bosom
<02436>_,
Your iniquities
<05771>_,
and the iniquities
<05771>
of your fathers
<01>
together
<03162>_,
saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
which have burned incense
<06999> (8765)
upon the mountains
<02022>_,
and blasphemed
<02778> (8765)
me upon the hills
<01389>_:
therefore will I measure
<04058> (8804)
their former
<07223>
work
<06468>
into their bosom
<02436>_.
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
As the new wine
<08492>
is found
<04672> (8735)
in the cluster
<0811>_,
and [one] saith
<0559> (8804)_,
Destroy
<07843> (8686)
it not; for a blessing
<01293>
[is] in it: so will I do
<06213> (8799)
for my servants
<05650>_'
sakes, that I may not destroy
<07843> (8687)
them all.
And I will bring forth
<03318> (8689)
a seed
<02233>
out of Jacob
<03290>_,
and out of Judah
<03063>
an inheritor
<03423> (8802)
of my mountains
<02022>_:
and mine elect
<0972>
shall inherit
<03423> (8804)
it, and my servants
<05650>
shall dwell
<07931> (8799)
there.
And Sharon
<08289>
shall be a fold
<05116>
of flocks
<06629>_,
and the valley
<06010>
of Achor
<05911>
a place for the herds
<01241>
to lie down in
<07258>_,
for my people
<05971>
that have sought
<01875> (8804)
me.
But ye [are] they that forsake
<05800> (8802)
the LORD
<03068>_,
that forget
<07913>
my holy
<06944>
mountain
<02022>_,
that prepare
<06186> (8802)
a table
<07979>
for that troop
<01409> (8677) <01408>_,
and that furnish
<04390> (8764)
the drink offering
<04469>
unto that number
<04507>_.
{troop: or, Gad} {number: or, Meni, a pagan god}
Therefore will I number
<04487> (8804)
you to the sword
<02719>_,
and ye shall all bow down
<03766> (8799)
to the slaughter
<02874>_:
because when I called
<07121> (8804)_,
ye did not answer
<06030> (8804)_;
when I spake
<01696> (8765)_,
ye did not hear
<08085> (8804)_;
but did
<06213> (8799)
evil
<07451>
before mine eyes
<05869>_,
and did choose
<0977> (8804)
[that] wherein I delighted
<02654> (8804)
not.
Therefore thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_,
Behold, my servants
<05650>
shall eat
<0398> (8799)_,
but ye shall be hungry
<07456> (8799)_:
behold, my servants
<05650>
shall drink
<08354> (8799)_,
but ye shall be thirsty
<06770> (8799)_:
behold, my servants
<05650>
shall rejoice
<08055> (8799)_,
but ye shall be ashamed
<0954> (8799)_:
Behold, my servants
<05650>
shall sing
<07442> (8799)
for joy
<02898>
of heart
<03820>_,
but ye shall cry
<06817> (8799)
for sorrow
<03511>
of heart
<03820>_,
and shall howl
<03213> (8686)
for vexation
<07667>
of spirit
<07307>_.
{vexation: Heb. breaking}
And ye shall leave
<03240> (8689)
your name
<08034>
for a curse
<07621>
unto my chosen
<0972>_:
for the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>
shall slay
<04191> (8689)
thee, and call
<07121> (8799)
his servants
<05650>
by another
<0312>
name
<08034>_:
That he who blesseth
<01288> (8693)
himself in the earth
<0776>
shall bless
<01288> (8691)
himself in the God
<0430>
of truth
<0543>_;
and he that sweareth
<07650> (8737)
in the earth
<0776>
shall swear
<07650> (8735)
by the God
<0430>
of truth
<0543>_;
because the former
<07223>
troubles
<06869>
are forgotten
<07911> (8738)_,
and because they are hid
<05641> (8738)
from mine eyes
<05869>_.
For, behold, I create
<01254> (8802)
new
<02319>
heavens
<08064>
and a new
<02319>
earth
<0776>_:
and the former
<07223>
shall not be remembered
<02142> (8735)_,
nor come
<05927> (8799)
into mind
<03820>_.
{come...: Heb. come upon the heart}
But be ye glad
<07797> (8798)
and rejoice
<01523> (8798)
for ever
<05703>
[in that] which I create
<01254> (8802)_:
for, behold, I create
<01254> (8802)
Jerusalem
<03389>
a rejoicing
<01525>_,
and her people
<05971>
a joy
<04885>_.
And I will rejoice
<01523> (8804)
in Jerusalem
<03389>_,
and joy
<07797> (8804)
in my people
<05971>_:
and the voice
<06963>
of weeping
<01065>
shall be no more heard
<08085> (8735)
in her, nor the voice
<06963>
of crying
<02201>_.
There shall be no more thence an infant
<05764>
of days
<03117>_,
nor an old man
<02205>
that hath not filled
<04390> (8762)
his days
<03117>_:
for the child
<05288>
shall die
<04191> (8799)
an hundred
<03967>
years
<08141>
old
<01121>_;
but the sinner
<02398> (8802)
[being] an hundred
<03967>
years
<08141>
old
<01121>
shall be accursed
<07043> (8792)_.
And they shall build
<01129> (8804)
houses
<01004>_,
and inhabit
<03427> (8804)
[them]; and they shall plant
<05193> (8804)
vineyards
<03754>_,
and eat
<0398> (8804)
the fruit
<06529>
of them.
They shall not build
<01129> (8799)_,
and another
<0312>
inhabit
<03427> (8799)_;
they shall not plant
<05193> (8799)_,
and another
<0312>
eat
<0398> (8799)_:
for as the days
<03117>
of a tree
<06086>
[are] the days
<03117>
of my people
<05971>_,
and mine elect
<0972>
shall long enjoy
<01086> (8762)
the work
<04639>
of their hands
<03027>_.
{shall long...: Heb. shall make them continue long, or, shall wear out}
They shall not labour
<03021> (8799)
in vain
<07385>_,
nor bring forth
<03205> (8799)
for trouble
<0928>_;
for they [are] the seed
<02233>
of the blessed
<01288> (8803)
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and their offspring
<06631>
with them.
And it shall come to pass, that before they call
<07121> (8799)_,
I will answer
<06030> (8799)_;
and while they are yet speaking
<01696> (8764)_,
I will hear
<08085> (8799)_.
The wolf
<02061>
and the lamb
<02924>
shall feed
<07462> (8799)
together
<0259>_,
and the lion
<0738>
shall eat
<0398> (8799)
straw
<08401>
like the bullock
<01241>_:
and dust
<06083>
[shall be] the serpent's
<05175>
meat
<03899>_.
They shall not hurt
<07489> (8686)
nor destroy
<07843> (8686)
in all my holy
<06944>
mountain
<02022>_,
saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_.
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
The heaven
<08064>
[is] my throne
<03678>_,
and the earth
<0776>
[is] my footstool
<07272> <01916>_:
where [is] the house
<01004>
that ye build
<01129> (8799)
unto me? and where [is] the place
<04725>
of my rest
<04496>_?
For all those [things] hath mine hand
<03027>
made
<06213> (8804)_,
and all those [things] have been, saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_:
but to this [man] will I look
<05027> (8686)_,
[even] to [him that is] poor
<06041>
and of a contrite
<05223>
spirit
<07307>_,
and trembleth
<02730>
at my word
<01697>_.
He that killeth
<07819> (8802)
an ox
<07794>
[is as if] he slew
<05221> (8688)
a man
<0376>_;
he that sacrificeth
<02076> (8802)
a lamb
<07716>_,
[as if] he cut off
<06202> (0)
a dog's
<03611>
neck
<06202> (8802)_;
he that offereth
<05927> (8688)
an oblation
<04503>_,
[as if he offered] swine's
<02386>
blood
<01818>_;
he that burneth
<02142> (8688)
incense
<03828>_,
[as if] he blessed
<01288> (8764)
an idol
<0205>_.
Yea, they have chosen
<0977> (8804)
their own ways
<01870>_,
and their soul
<05315>
delighteth
<02654> (8804)
in their abominations
<08251>_.
{lamb: or, kid} {burneth: Heb. maketh a memorial of}
I also will choose
<0977> (8799)
their delusions
<08586>_,
and will bring
<0935> (8686)
their fears
<04035>
upon them; because when I called
<07121> (8804)_,
none did answer
<06030> (8802)_;
when I spake
<01696> (8765)_,
they did not hear
<08085> (8804)_:
but they did
<06213> (8799)
evil
<07451>
before mine eyes
<05869>_,
and chose
<0977> (8804)
[that] in which I delighted
<02654> (8804)
not. {delusions: or, devices}
Hear
<08085> (8798)
the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>_,
ye that tremble
<02730>
at his word
<01697>_;
Your brethren
<0251>
that hated
<08130> (8802)
you, that cast you out
<05077> (8764)
for my name's
<08034>
sake, said
<0559> (8804)_,
Let the LORD
<03068>
be glorified
<03513> (8799)_:
but he shall appear
<07200> (8737)
to your joy
<08057>_,
and they shall be ashamed
<0954> (8799)_.
A voice
<06963>
of noise
<07588>
from the city
<05892>_,
a voice
<06963>
from the temple
<01964>_,
a voice
<06963>
of the LORD
<03068>
that rendereth
<07999> (8764)
recompence
<01576>
to his enemies
<0341> (8802)_.
Before she travailed
<02342> (8799)_,
she brought forth
<03205> (8804)_;
before her pain
<02256>
came
<0935> (8799)_,
she was delivered
<04422> (8689)
of a man child
<02145>_.
Who hath heard
<08085> (8804)
such a thing? who hath seen
<07200> (8804)
such things? Shall the earth
<0776>
be made to bring forth
<02342> (8714)
in one
<0259>
day
<03117>_?
[or] shall a nation
<01471>
be born
<03205> (8735)
at once
<06471>_?
for as soon as
<01571>
Zion
<06726>
travailed
<02342> (8804)_,
she brought forth
<03205> (8804)
her children
<01121>_.
Shall I bring to the birth
<07665> (8686)_,
and not cause to bring forth
<03205> (8686)_?
saith
<0559> (8799)
the LORD
<03068>_:
shall I
<0589>
cause to bring forth
<03205> (8688)_,
and shut
<06113> (8804)
[the womb]? saith
<0559> (8804)
thy God
<0430>_.
{not...: or, not beget?}
Rejoice
<08055> (8798)
ye with Jerusalem
<03389>_,
and be glad
<01523> (8798)
with her, all ye that love
<0157> (8802)
her: rejoice
<07797> (8798)
for joy
<04885>
with her, all ye that mourn
<056> (8693)
for her:
That ye may suck
<03243> (8799)_,
and be satisfied
<07646> (8804)
with the breasts
<07699>
of her consolations
<08575>_;
that ye may milk out
<04711> (8799)_,
and be delighted
<06026> (8694)
with the abundance
<02123>
of her glory
<03519>_.
{abundance: or, brightness}
For thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
Behold, I will extend
<05186> (8802)
peace
<07965>
to her like a river
<05104>_,
and the glory
<03519>
of the Gentiles
<01471>
like a flowing
<07857> (8802)
stream
<05158>_:
then shall ye suck
<03243> (8804)_,
ye shall be borne
<05375> (8735)
upon [her] sides
<06654>_,
and be dandled
<08173> (8746)
upon [her] knees
<01290>_.
As one
<0376>
whom his mother
<0517>
comforteth
<05162> (8762)_,
so will I comfort
<05162> (8762)
you; and ye shall be comforted
<05162> (8792)
in Jerusalem
<03389>_.
And when ye see
<07200> (8804)
[this], your heart
<03820>
shall rejoice
<07797> (8804)_,
and your bones
<06106>
shall flourish
<06524> (8799)
like an herb
<01877>_:
and the hand
<03027>
of the LORD
<03068>
shall be known
<03045> (8738)
toward his servants
<05650>_,
and [his] indignation
<02194> (8804)
toward his enemies
<0341> (8802)_.
For, behold, the LORD
<03068>
will come
<0935> (8799)
with fire
<0784>_,
and with his chariots
<04818>
like a whirlwind
<05492>_,
to render
<07725> (8687)
his anger
<0639>
with fury
<02534>_,
and his rebuke
<01606>
with flames
<03851>
of fire
<0784>_.
For by fire
<0784>
and by his sword
<02719>
will the LORD
<03068>
plead
<08199> (8737)
with all flesh
<01320>_:
and the slain
<02491>
of the LORD
<03068>
shall be many
<07231> (8804)_.
They that sanctify
<06942> (8693)
themselves, and purify
<02891> (8693)
themselves in the gardens
<01593>
behind
<0310>
one
<0259>
[tree] in the midst
<08432>_,
eating
<0398> (8802)
swine's
<02386>
flesh
<01320>_,
and the abomination
<08263>_,
and the mouse
<05909>_,
shall be consumed
<05486> (8799)
together
<03162>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
{behind...: or, one after another}
For I [know] their works
<04639>
and their thoughts
<04284>_:
it shall come
<0935> (8802)_,
that I will gather
<06908> (8763)
all nations
<01471>
and tongues
<03956>_;
and they shall come
<0935> (8804)_,
and see
<07200> (8804)
my glory
<03519>_.
And I will set
<07760> (8804)
a sign
<0226>
among them, and I will send
<07971> (8765)
those that escape
<06412>
of them unto the nations
<01471>_,
[to] Tarshish
<08659>_,
Pul
<06322>_,
and Lud
<03865>_,
that draw
<04900> (8802)
the bow
<07198>_,
[to] Tubal
<08422>_,
and Javan
<03120>_,
[to] the isles
<0339>
afar off
<07350>_,
that have not heard
<08085> (8804)
my fame
<08088>_,
neither have seen
<07200> (8804)
my glory
<03519>_;
and they shall declare
<05046> (8689)
my glory
<03519>
among the Gentiles
<01471>_.
And they shall bring
<0935> (8689)
all your brethren
<0251>
[for] an offering
<04503>
unto the LORD
<03068>
out of all nations
<01471>
upon horses
<05483>_,
and in chariots
<07393>_,
and in litters
<06632>_,
and upon mules
<06505>_,
and upon swift beasts
<03753>_,
to my holy
<06944>
mountain
<02022>
Jerusalem
<03389>_,
saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_,
as the children
<01121>
of Israel
<03478>
bring
<0935> (8686)
an offering
<04503>
in a clean
<02889>
vessel
<03627>
into the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>_.
{litters: or, coaches}
And I will also take
<03947> (8799)
of them for priests
<03548>
[and] for Levites
<03881>_,
saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_.
For as the new
<02319>
heavens
<08064>
and the new
<02319>
earth
<0776>_,
which I will make
<06213> (8802)_,
shall remain
<05975> (8802)
before
<06440>
me, saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_,
so shall your seed
<02233>
and your name
<08034>
remain
<05975> (8799)_.
And it shall come to pass, [that] from
<01767>
one new moon
<02320>
to another
<02320>_,
and from
<01767>
one sabbath
<07676>
to another
<07676>_,
shall all flesh
<01320>
come
<0935> (8799)
to worship
<07812> (8692)
before
<06440>
me, saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_.
{from one new...: Heb. from new moon to his new moon, and from sabbath to his sabbath}
And they shall go forth
<03318> (8804)_,
and look
<07200> (8804)
upon the carcases
<06297>
of the men
<0582>
that have transgressed
<06586> (8802)
against me: for their worm
<08438>
shall not die
<04191> (8799)_,
neither shall their fire
<0784>
be quenched
<03518> (8799)_;
and they shall be an abhorring
<01860>
unto all flesh
<01320>_.
