Isaiah 51:13


51:13 Why do you forget 1  the Lord, who made you,

who stretched out the sky 2 

and founded the earth?

Why do you constantly tremble all day long 3 

at the anger of the oppressor,

when he makes plans to destroy?

Where is the anger of the oppressor? 4 

Isaiah 51:22-23


51:22 This is what your sovereign master, 5  the Lord your God, says:

“Look, I have removed from your hand

the cup of intoxicating wine, 6 

the goblet full of my anger. 7 

You will no longer have to drink it.

51:23 I will put it into the hand of your tormentors 8 

who said to you, ‘Lie down, so we can walk over you.’

You made your back like the ground,

and like the street for those who walked over you.”
