Isaiah 65:13-16


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

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

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

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

65:14 Look, my servants will shout for joy as happiness fills their hearts! 1 

But you will cry out as sorrow fills your hearts; 2 

you will wail because your spirits will be crushed. 3 

65:15 Your names will live on in the curse formulas of my chosen ones. 4 

The sovereign Lord will kill you,

but he will give his servants another name.

65:16 Whoever pronounces a blessing in the earth 5 

will do so in the name of the faithful God; 6 

whoever makes an oath in the earth

will do so in the name of the faithful God. 7 

For past problems will be forgotten;

I will no longer think about them. 8
