Brief for Isaiah

Looks at the sin of Judah and proclaims God's judgment. Hezekiah. Coming restoration and blessing.

Synopsis for Isaiah

This book, as is true of all the prophetical books, derives its name from the prophet whose messages it records. The unity of Isaiah, a problem related to authorship and contents, has been the subject of much debate. The message of the book is twofold: judgment upon Judah for her sins (1-39), and comfort and hope for an exiled people (40-66). In these messages of encouragement are found some of the most graphic portrayals of the Messiah in the Old Testament.

Isaiah 41:6

  ( Listen:  book   chapter )    
Chapter

They help every one his neighbor; and 'every one' saith to his brother, Be of good courage. [6]   So the carpenter encourageth the goldsmith, 'and' he that smootheth with the hammer him that smiteth the anvil, saying of the soldering, It is good; and he fasteneth it with nails, that is should not be moved. [7]   But thou, Israel, my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend, [8]   thou whom I have taken hold of from the ends of the earth, and called from the corners thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my servant, I have chosen thee and not cast thee away; [9]   Fear thou not, for I am with thee; be not dismayed, for I am thy God; I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. [10]   Behold, all they that are incensed against thee shall be put to shame and confounded: they that strive with thee shall be as nothing, and shall perish. [11]   Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contend with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought. [12]   For I, Jehovah thy God, will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. [13]   Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith Jehovah, and thy Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel. [14]   Behold, I have made thee 'to be' a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth; thou shalt thresh the mountains, and beat them small, and shalt make the hills as chaff. [15]   Thou shalt winnow them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind shall scatter them; and thou shalt rejoice in Jehovah, thou shalt glory in the Holy One of Israel. [16]   

The poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst; I, Jehovah, will answer them, I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them. [17]   I will open rivers on the bare heights, and fountains in the midst of the valleys; I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water. [18]   I will put in the wilderness the cedar, the acacia, and the myrtle, and the oil-tree; I will set in the desert the fir-tree, the pine, and the box-tree together: [19]   that they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of Jehovah hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it. [20]   Produce your cause, saith Jehovah; bring forth your strong reasons, saith the King of Jacob. [21]   Let them bring forth, and declare unto us what shall happen: declare ye the former things, what they are, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or show us things to come. [22]   Declare the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that ye are gods: yea, do good, or do evil, that we may be dismayed, and behold it together. [23]   Behold, ye are of nothing, and your work is of nought; an abomination is he that chooseth you. [24]   I have raised up one from the north, and he is come; from the rising of the sun one that calleth upon my name: and he shall come upon rulers as upon mortar, and as the potter treadeth clay. [25]   Who hath declared it from the beginning, that we may know? and beforetime, that we may say, 'He is' right? yea, there is none that declareth, yea, there is none that showeth, yea, there is none that heareth your words. [26]   

'I am the' first 'that saith' unto Zion, Behold, behold them; and I will give to Jerusalem one that bringeth good tidings. [27]   And when I look, there is no man: even among them there is no counsellor, that, when I ask of them, can answer a word. [28]   Behold, all of them, their works are vanity 'and' nought; their molten images are wind and confusion. [29]   

Isaiah 42:6

  ( Listen:  book   chapter )    
Chapter

I, Jehovah, have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thy hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; [6]   to open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison-house. [7]   I am Jehovah, that is my name; and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise unto graven images. [8]   Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them. [9]   Sing unto Jehovah a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth; ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein, the isles, and the inhabitants thereof. [10]   Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift up 'their voice', the villages that Kedar doth inhabit; let the inhabitants of Sela sing, let them shout from the top of the mountains. [11]   Let them give glory unto Jehovah, and declare his praise in the islands. [12]   

Jehovah will go forth as a mighty man; he will stir up 'his' zeal like a man of war: he will cry, yea, he will shout aloud; he will do mightily against his enemies. [13]   I have long time holden my peace; I have been still, and refrained myself: 'now' will I cry out like a travailing woman; I will gasp and pant together. [14]   I will lay waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands, and will dry up the pools. [15]   And I will bring the blind by a way that they know not; in paths that they know not will I lead them; I will make darkness light before them, and crooked places straight. These things will I do, and I will not forsake them. [16]   They shall be turned back, they shall be utterly put to shame, that trust in graven images, that say unto molten images, Ye are our gods. [17]   Hear, ye deaf; and look, ye blind, that ye may see. [18]   Who is blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my messenger that I send? who is blind as he that is at peace 'with me', and blind as Jehovah's servant? [19]   Thou seest many things, but thou observest not; his ears are open, but he heareth not. [20]   It pleased Jehovah, for his righteousness' sake, to magnify the law, and make it honorable. [21]   But this is a people robbed and plundered; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison-houses: they are for a prey, and none delivereth; for a spoil, and none saith, Restore. [22]   

Who is there among you that will give ear to this? that will hearken and hear for the time to come? [23]   Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? did not Jehovah? he against whom we have sinned, and in whose ways they would not walk, neither were they obedient unto his law. [24]   Therefore he poured upon him the fierceness of his anger, and the strength of battle; and it set him on fire round about, yet he knew not; and it burned him, yet he laid it not to heart. [25]   

Isaiah 43:6

  ( Listen:  book   chapter )    
Chapter

I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back; bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the end of the earth; [6]   every one that is called by my name, and whom I have created for my glory, whom I have formed, yea, whom I have made. [7]   Bring forth the blind people that have eyes, and the deaf that have ears. [8]   Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the peoples be assembled: who among them can declare this, and show us former things? let them bring their witnesses, that they may be justified; or let them hear, and say, It is truth. [9]   Ye are my witnesses, saith Jehovah, and my servant whom I have chosen; that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. [10]   I, even I, am Jehovah; and besides me there is no saviour. [11]   I have declared, and I have saved, and I have showed; and there was no strange 'god' among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith Jehovah, and I am God. [12]   Yea, since the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who can hinder it? [13]   Thus saith Jehovah, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: For your sake I have sent to Babylon, and I will bring down all of them as fugitives, even the Chaldeans, in the ships of their rejoicing. [14]   

I am Jehovah, your Holy One, the Creator of Israel, your King. [15]   Thus saith Jehovah, who maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters; [16]   who bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the mighty man (they lie down together, they shall not rise; they are extinct, they are quenched as a wick): [17]   Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. [18]   Behold, I will do a new thing; now shall it spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. [19]   The beasts of the field shall honor me, the jackals and the ostriches; because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen, [20]   the people which I formed for myself, that they might set forth my praise. [21]   Yet thou hast not called upon me, O Jacob; but thou hast been weary of me, O Israel. [22]   Thou hast not brought me of thy sheep for burnt-offerings; neither hast thou honored me with thy sacrifices. I have not burdened thee with offerings, nor wearied thee with frankincense. [23]   Thou hast bought me no sweet cane with money, neither hast thou filled me with the fat of thy sacrifices; but thou hast burdened me with thy sins, thou hast wearied me with thine iniquities. [24]   I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake; and I will not remember thy sins. [25]   Put me in remembrance; let us plead together: set thou forth 'thy cause', that thou mayest be justified. [26]   

Thy first father sinned, and thy teachers have transgressed against me. [27]   Therefore I will profane the princes of the sanctuary; and I will make Jacob a curse, and Israel a reviling. [28]   

Isaiah 44:6

  ( Listen:  book   chapter )    
Chapter

Thus saith Jehovah, the King of Israel, and his Redeemer, Jehovah of hosts: I am the first, and I am the last; and besides me there is no God. [6]   And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I established the ancient people? and the things that are coming, and that shall come to pass, let them declare. [7]   Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have I not declared unto thee of old, and showed it? and ye are my witnesses. Is there a God besides me? yea, there is no Rock; I know not any. [8]   They that fashion a graven image are all of them vanity; and the things that they delight in shall not profit; and their own witnesses see not, nor know: that they may be put to shame. [9]   Who hath fashioned a god, or molten an image that is profitable for nothing? [10]   Behold, all his fellows shall be put to shame; and the workmen, they are of men: let them all be gathered together, let them stand up; they shall fear, they shall be put to shame together. [11]   The smith 'maketh' an axe, and worketh in the coals, and fashioneth it with hammers, and worketh it with his strong arm: yea, he is hungry, and his strength faileth; he drinketh no water, and is faint. [12]   The carpenter stretcheth out a line; he marketh it out with a pencil; he shapeth it with planes, and he marketh it out with the compasses, and shapeth it after the figure of a man, according to the beauty of a man, to dwell in a house. [13]   

He heweth him down cedars, and taketh the holm-tree and the oak, and strengtheneth for himself one among the trees of the forest: he planteth a fir-tree, and the rain doth nourish it. [14]   Then shall it be for a man to burn; and he taketh thereof, and warmeth himself; yea, he kindleth it, and baketh bread: yea, he maketh a god, and worshippeth it; he maketh it a graven image, and falleth down thereto. [15]   He burneth part thereof in the fire; with part thereof he eateth flesh; he roasteth roast, and is satisfied; yea, he warmeth himself, and saith, Aha, I am warm, I have seen the fire. [16]   And the residue thereof he maketh a god, even his graven image; he falleth down unto it and worshippeth, and prayeth unto it, and saith, Deliver me; for thou art my god. [17]   They know not, neither do they consider: for he hath shut their eyes, that they cannot see; and their hearts, that they cannot understand. [18]   And none calleth to mind, neither is there knowledge nor understanding to say, I have burned part of it in the fire; yea, also I have baked bread upon the coals thereof; I have roasted flesh and eaten it: and shall I make the residue thereof an abomination? shall I fall down to the stock of a tree? [19]   He feedeth on ashes; a deceived heart hath turned him aside; and he cannot deliver his soul, nor say, Is there not a lie in my right hand? [20]   Remember these things, O Jacob, and Israel; for thou art my servant: I have formed thee; thou art my servant: O Israel, thou shalt not be forgotten of me. [21]   I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee. [22]   Sing, O ye heavens, for Jehovah hath done it; shout, ye lower parts of the earth; break forth into singing, ye mountains, O forest, and every tree therein: for Jehovah hath redeemed Jacob, and will glorify himself in Israel. [23]   Thus saith Jehovah, thy Redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb: I am Jehovah, that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth (who is with me?); [24]   that frustrateth the signs of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish; [25]   that confirmeth the word of his servant, and performeth the counsel of his messengers; that saith of Jerusalem, She shall be inhabited; and of the cities of Judah, They shall be built, and I will raise up the waste places thereof; [26]   that saith to the deep, Be dry, and I will dry up thy rivers; [27]   That saith of Cyrus, 'He is' my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasure, even saying of Jerusalem, She shall be built; and of the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid. [28]   



Isaiah 45:6

  ( Listen:  book   chapter )    
Chapter

that they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none besides me: I am Jehovah, and there is none else. [6]   I form the light, and create darkness; I make peace, and create evil. I am Jehovah, that doeth all these things. [7]   Distil, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, that it may bring forth salvation, and let it cause righteousness to spring up together; I, Jehovah, have created it. [8]   Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! a potsherd among the potsherds of the earth! Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands? [9]   Woe unto him that saith unto a father, What begettest thou? or to a woman, With what travailest thou? [10]   Thus saith Jehovah, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker: Ask me of the things that are to come; concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands, command ye me. [11]   I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens; and all their host have I commanded. [12]   I have raised him up in righteousness, and I will make straight all his ways: he shall build my city, and he shall let my exiles go free, not for price nor reward, saith Jehovah of hosts. [13]   Thus saith Jehovah, The labor of Egypt, and the merchandise of Ethiopia, and the Sabeans, men of stature, shall come over unto thee, and they shall be thine: they shall go after thee, in chains they shall come over; and they shall fall down unto thee, they shall make supplication unto thee, 'saying', Surely God is in thee; and there is none else, there is no God. [14]   Verily thou art a God that hidest thyself, O God of Israel, the Saviour. [15]   They shall be put to shame, yea, confounded, all of them; they shall go into confusion together that are makers of idols. [16]   

'But' Israel shall be saved by Jehovah with an everlasting salvation: ye shall not be put to shame nor confounded world without end. [17]   For thus saith Jehovah that created the heavens, the God that formed the earth and made it, that established it and created it not a waste, that formed it to be inhabited: I am Jehovah; and there is none else. [18]   I have not spoken in secret, in a place of the land of darkness; I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I, Jehovah, speak righteousness, I declare things that are right. [19]   Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, ye that are escaped of the nations: they have no knowledge that carry the wood of their graven image, and pray unto a god that cannot save. [20]   Declare ye, and bring 'it' forth; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath showed this from ancient time? who hath declared it of old? have not I, Jehovah? and there is no God else besides me, a just God and a Saviour; there is none besides me. [21]   Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is none else. [22]   By myself have I sworn, the word is gone forth from my mouth 'in' righteousness, and shall not return, that unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear. [23]   Only in Jehovah, it is said of me, is righteousness and strength; even to him shall men come; and all they that were incensed against him shall be put to shame. [24]   In Jehovah shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory. [25]   



Isaiah 46:6

  ( Listen:  book   chapter )    
Chapter

Such as lavish gold out of the bag, and weigh silver in the balance, they hire a goldsmith, and he maketh it a god; they fall down, yea, they worship. [6]   They bear it upon the shoulder, they carry it, and set it in its place, and it standeth, from its place shall it not remove: yea, one may cry unto it, yet can it not answer, nor save him out of his trouble. [7]   Remember this, and show yourselves men; bring it again to mind, O ye transgressors. [8]   Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; 'I am' God, and there is none like me; [9]   declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not 'yet' done; saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure; [10]   calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man of my counsel from a far country; yea, I have spoken, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed, I will also do it. [11]   Hearken unto me, ye stout-hearted, that are far from righteousness: [12]   I bring near my righteousness, it shall not be far off, and my salvation shall not tarry; and I will place salvation in Zion for Israel my glory. [13]   

Isaiah 47:6

  ( Listen:  book   chapter )    
Chapter

I was wroth with my people, I profaned mine inheritance, and gave them into thy hand: thou didst show them no mercy; upon the aged hast thou very heavily laid thy yoke. [6]   And thou saidst, I shall be mistress for ever; so that thou didst not lay these things to thy heart, neither didst remember the latter end thereof. [7]   Now therefore hear this, thou that art given to pleasures, that sittest securely, that sayest in thy heart, I am, and there is none else besides me; I shall not sit as a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children: [8]   but these two things shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood; in their full measure shall they come upon thee, in the multitude of thy sorceries, and the great abundance of thine enchantments. [9]   For thou hast trusted in thy wickedness; thou hast said, None seeth me; thy wisdom and thy knowledge, it hath perverted thee, and thou hast said in thy heart, I am, and there is none else besides me. [10]   

Therefore shall evil come upon thee; thou shalt not know the dawning thereof: and mischief shall fall upon thee; thou shalt not be able to put it away: and desolation shall come upon thee suddenly, which thou knowest not. [11]   Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries, wherein thou hast labored from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail. [12]   Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels: let now the astrologers, the star-gazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from the things that shall come upon thee. [13]   Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: it shall not be a coal to warm at, nor a fire to sit before. [14]   Thus shall the things be unto thee wherein thou hast labored: they that have trafficked with thee from thy youth shall wander every one to his quarter; there shall be none to save thee. [15]   

Isaiah 48:6

  ( Listen:  book   chapter )    
Chapter

Thou hast heard it; behold all this; and ye, will ye not declare it? I have showed thee new things from this time, even hidden things, which thou hast not known. [6]   They are created now, and not from of old; and before this day thou heardest them not; lest thou shouldest say, Behold, I knew them. [7]   Yea, thou heardest not; yea, thou knewest not; yea, from of old thine ear was not opened: for I knew that thou didst deal very treacherously, and wast called a transgressor from the womb. [8]   For my name's sake will I defer mine anger, and for my praise will I refrain for thee, that I cut thee not off. [9]   

Behold, I have refined thee, but not as silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction. [10]   For mine own sake, for mine own sake, will I do it; for how should 'my name' be profaned? and my glory will I not give to another. [11]   Hearken unto me, O Jacob, and Israel my called: I am he; I am the first, I also am the last. [12]   Yea, my hand hath laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand hath spread out the heavens: when I call unto them, they stand up together. [13]   Assemble yourselves, all ye, and hear; who among them hath declared these things? He whom Jehovah loveth shall perform his pleasure on Babylon, and his arm 'shall be on' the Chaldeans. [14]   I, even I, have spoken; yea, I have called him; I have brought him, and he shall make his way prosperous. [15]   Come ye near unto me, hear ye this; from the beginning I have not spoken in secret; from the time that it was, there am I: and now the Lord Jehovah hath sent me, and his Spirit. [16]   Thus saith Jehovah, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: I am Jehovah thy God, who teacheth thee to profit, who leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go. [17]   Oh that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea: [18]   thy seed also had been as the sand, and the offspring of thy bowels like the grains thereof: his name would not be cut off nor destroyed from before me. [19]   

Go ye forth from Babylon, flee ye from the Chaldeans; with a voice of singing declare ye, tell this, utter it even to the end of the earth: say ye, Jehovah hath redeemed his servant Jacob. [20]   And they thirsted not when he led them through the deserts; he caused the waters to flow out of the rock for them; he clave the rock also, and the waters gushed out. [21]   There is no peace, saith Jehovah, to the wicked. [22]   

Isaiah 49:6

  ( Listen:  book   chapter )    
Chapter

yea, he saith, It is too light a thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth. [6]   Thus saith Jehovah, the Redeemer of Israel, 'and' his Holy One, to him whom man despiseth, to him whom the nation abhorreth, to a servant of rulers: Kings shall see and arise; princes, and they shall worship; because of Jehovah that is faithful, 'even' the Holy One of Israel, who hath chosen thee. [7]   Thus saith Jehovah, In an acceptable time have I answered thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee; and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to raise up the land, to make them inherit the desolate heritages: [8]   saying to them that are bound, Go forth; to them that are in darkness, Show yourselves. They shall feed in the ways, and on all bare heights shall be their pasture. [9]   They shall not hunger nor thirst; neither shall the heat nor sun smite them: for he that hath mercy on them will lead them, even by springs of water will he guide them. [10]   And I will make all my mountains a way, and my highways shall be exalted. [11]   Lo, these shall come from far; and, lo, these from the north and from the west; and these from the land of Sinim. [12]   

Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains: for Jehovah hath comforted his people, and will have compassion upon his afflicted. [13]   But Zion said, Jehovah hath forsaken me, and the Lord hath forgotten me. [14]   Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, these may forget, yet will not I forget thee. [15]   Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me. [16]   Thy children make haste; thy destroyers and they that made thee waste shall go forth from thee. [17]   Lift up thine eyes round about, and behold: all these gather themselves together, and come to thee. As I live, saith Jehovah, thou shalt surely clothe thee with them all as with an ornament, and gird thyself with them, like a bride. [18]   For, as for thy waste and thy desolate places, and thy land that hath been destroyed, surely now shalt thou be too strait for the inhabitants, and they that swallowed thee up shall be far away. [19]   The children of thy bereavement shall yet say in thine ears, The place is too strait for me; give place to me that I may dwell. [20]   Then shalt thou say in thy heart, Who hath begotten me these, seeing I have been bereaved of my children, and am solitary, an exile, and wandering to and fro? and who hath brought up these? Behold, I was left alone; these, where were they? [21]   Thus saith the Lord Jehovah, Behold, I will lift up my hand to the nations, and set up my ensign to the peoples; and they shall bring thy sons in their bosom, and thy daughters shall be carried upon their shoulders. [22]   

And kings shall be thy nursing fathers, and their queens thy nursing mothers: they shall bow down to thee with their faces to the earth, and lick the dust of thy feet; and thou shalt know that I am Jehovah; and they that wait for me shall not be put to shame. [23]   Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captives be delivered? [24]   But thus saith Jehovah, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered; for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children. [25]   And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I, Jehovah, am thy Saviour, and thy Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob. [26]   

Isaiah 50:6

  ( Listen:  book   chapter )    
Chapter

I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair; I hid not my face from shame and spitting. [6]   For the Lord Jehovah will help me; therefore have I not been confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be put to shame. [7]   He is near that justifieth me; who will content with me? let us stand up together: who is mine adversary? let him come near to me. [8]   Behold, the Lord Jehovah will help me; who is he that shall condemn me? behold, all they shall wax old as a garment, the moth shall eat them up. [9]   Who is among you that feareth Jehovah, that obeyeth the voice of his servant? he that walketh in darkness, and hath no light, let him trust in the name of Jehovah, and rely upon his God. [10]   Behold, all ye that kindle a fire, that gird yourselves about with firebrands; walk ye in the flame of your fire, and among the brands that ye have kindled. This shall ye have of my hand; ye shall lie down in sorrow. [11]   



Isaiah 51:6

  ( Listen:  book   chapter )    
Chapter

Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath; for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment; and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished. [6]   Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law; fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye dismayed at their revilings. [7]   For the moth shall eat them up like a garment, and the worm shall eat them like wool; but my righteousness shall be for ever, and my salvation unto all generations. [8]   Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of Jehovah; awake, as in the days of old, the generations of ancient times. Is it not thou that didst cut Rahab in pieces, that didst pierce the monster? [9]   Is it not thou that driedst up the sea, the waters of the great deep; that madest the depths of the sea a way for the redeemed to pass over? [10]   And the ransomed of Jehovah shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their heads: they shall obtain gladness and joy; 'and' sorrow and sighing shall flee away. [11]   I, even I, am he that comforteth you: who art thou, that thou art afraid of man that shall die, and of the son of man that shall be made as grass; [12]   and hast forgotten Jehovah thy Maker, that stretched forth the heavens, and laid the foundations of the earth; and fearest continually all the day because of the fury of the oppressor, when he maketh ready to destroy? and where is the fury of the oppressor? [13]   The captive exile shall speedily be loosed; and he shall not die 'and go down' into the pit, neither shall his bread fail. [14]   For I am Jehovah thy God, who stirreth up the sea, so that the waves thereof roar: Jehovah of hosts is his name. [15]   And I have put my words in thy mouth, and have covered thee in the shadow of my hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people. [16]   Awake, awake, stand up, O Jerusalem, that hast drunk at the hand of Jehovah the cup of his wrath; thou hast drunken the bowl of the cup of staggering, and drained it. [17]   

There is none to guide her among all the sons whom she hath brought forth; neither is there any that taketh her by the hand among all the sons that she hath brought up. [18]   These two things are befallen thee, who shall bemoan thee? desolation and destruction, and the famine and the sword; how shall I comfort thee? [19]   Thy sons have fainted, they lie at the head of all the streets, as an antelope in a net; they are full of the wrath of Jehovah, the rebuke of thy God. [20]   Therefore hear now this, thou afflicted, and drunken, but now with wine: [21]   Thus saith thy Lord Jehovah, and thy God that pleadeth the cause of his people, Behold, I have taken out of thy hand the cup of staggering, even the bowl of the cup of my wrath; thou shalt no more drink it again: [22]   and I will put it into the hand of them that afflict thee, that have said to thy soul, Bow down, that we may go over; and thou hast laid thy back as the ground, and as the street, to them that go over. [23]   

Isaiah 52:6

  ( Listen:  book   chapter )    
Chapter

Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore 'they shall know' in that day that I am he that doth speak; behold, it is I. [6]   How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace, that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation, that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth! [7]   The voice of thy watchmen! they lift up the voice, together do they sing; for they shall see eye to eye, when Jehovah returneth to Zion. [8]   Break forth into joy, sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem; for Jehovah hath comforted his people, he hath redeemed Jerusalem. [9]   Jehovah hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God. [10]   Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; cleanse yourselves, ye that bear the vessels of Jehovah. [11]   For ye shall not go out in haste, neither shall ye go by flight: for Jehovah will go before you; and the God of Israel will be your rearward. [12]   

Behold, my servant shall deal wisely, he shall be exalted and lifted up, and shall be very high. [13]   Like as many were astonished at thee (his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men), [14]   so shall he sprinkle many nations; kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they understand. [15]   

Isaiah 53:6

  ( Listen:  book   chapter )    
Chapter

All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and Jehovah hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. [6]   He was oppressed, yet when he was afflicted he opened not his mouth; as a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and as a sheep that before its shearers is dumb, so he opened not his mouth. [7]   By oppression and judgment he was taken away; and as for his generation, who 'among them' considered that he was cut off out of the land of the living for the transgression of my people to whom the stroke 'was due'? [8]   And they made his grave with the wicked, and with a rich man in his death; although he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. [9]   Yet it pleased Jehovah to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see 'his' seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of Jehovah shall prosper in his hand. [10]   He shall see of the travail of his soul, 'and' shall be satisfied: by the knowledge of himself shall my righteous servant justify many; and he shall bear their iniquities. [11]   Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he poured out his soul unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors: yet he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors. [12]

Chapter

For Jehovah hath called thee as a wife forsaken and grieved in spirit, even a wife of youth, when she is cast off, saith thy God. [6]   

For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee. [7]   In overflowing wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting lovingkindness will I have mercy on thee, saith Jehovah thy Redeemer. [8]   For this is 'as' the waters of Noah unto me; for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah shall no more go over the earth, so have I sworn that I will not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee. [9]   For the mountains may depart, and the hills be removed; but my lovingkindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall my covenant of peace be removed, saith Jehovah that hath mercy on thee. [10]   O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will set thy stones in fair colors, and lay thy foundations with sapphires. [11]   And I will make thy pinnacles of rubies, and thy gates of carbuncles, and all thy border of precious stones. [12]   And all thy children shall be taught of Jehovah; and great shall be the peace of thy children. [13]   In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression, for thou shalt not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near thee. [14]   Behold, they may gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall because of thee. [15]   

Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the fire of coals, and bringeth forth a weapon for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy. [16]   No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of Jehovah, and their righteousness which is of me, saith Jehovah. [17]

Seek ye Jehovah while he may be found; call ye upon him while he is near: [6]   let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return unto Jehovah, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. [7]   For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith Jehovah. [8]   For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. [9]   For as the rain cometh down and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, and giveth seed to the sower and bread to the eater; [10]   so shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. [11]   For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing; and all the trees of the fields shall clap their hands. [12]   Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir-tree; and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle-tree: and it shall be to Jehovah for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off. [13]

Also the foreigners that join themselves to Jehovah, to minister unto him, and to love the name of Jehovah, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from profaning it, and holdeth fast my covenant; [6]   even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt-offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples. [7]   

The Lord Jehovah, who gathereth the outcasts of Israel, saith, Yet will I gather 'others' to him, besides his own that are gathered. [8]   All ye beasts of the field, come to devour, 'yea', all ye beasts in the forest. [9]   His watchmen are blind, they are all without knowledge; they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; dreaming, lying down, loving to slumber. [10]   Yea, the dogs are greedy, they can never have enough; and these are shepherds that cannot understand: they have all turned to their own way, each one to his gain, from every quarter. [11]   Come ye, 'say they', I will fetch wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and to-morrow shall be as this day, 'a day' great beyond measure. [12]   

Isaiah 57:6

  ( Listen:  book   chapter )    
Chapter

Among the smooth 'stones' of the valley is thy portion; they, they are thy lot; even to them hast thou poured a drink-offering, thou hast offered an oblation. Shall I be appeased for these things? [6]   Upon a high and lofty mountain hast thou set thy bed; thither also wentest thou up to offer sacrifice. [7]   And behind the doors and the posts hast thou set up thy memorial: for thou hast uncovered 'thyself' to another than me, and art gone up; thou hast enlarged thy bed, and made thee a covenant with them: thou lovedst their bed where thou sawest it. [8]   And thou wentest to the king with oil, and didst increase thy perfumes, and didst send thine ambassadors far off, and didst debase thyself even unto Sheol. [9]   

Thou wast wearied with the length of thy way; yet saidst thou not, It is in vain: thou didst find a quickening of thy strength; therefore thou wast not faint. [10]   And of whom hast thou been afraid and in fear, that thou liest, and hast not remembered me, nor laid it to thy heart? have not I held my peace even of long time, and thou fearest me not? [11]   I will declare thy righteousness; and as for thy works, they shall not profit thee. [12]   When thou criest, let them that thou hast gathered deliver thee; but the wind shall take them, a breath shall carry them all away: but he that taketh refuge in me shall possess the land, and shall inherit my holy mountain. [13]   And he will say, Cast ye up, cast ye up, prepare the way, take up the stumbling-block out of the way of my people. [14]   For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy: I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite. [15]   For I will not contend for ever, neither will I be always wroth; for the spirit would faint before me, and the souls that I have made. [16]   For the iniquity of his covetousness was I wroth, and smote him; I hid 'my face' and was wroth; and he went on backsliding in the way of his heart. [17]   I have seen his ways, and will heal him: I will lead him also, and restore comforts unto him and to his mourners. [18]   I create the fruit of the lips: Peace, peace, to him that is far off and to him that is near, saith Jehovah; and I will heal him. [19]   

But the wicked are like the troubled sea; for it cannot rest, and its waters cast up mire and dirt. [20]   There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked. [21]   

Isaiah 58:6

  ( Listen:  book   chapter )    
Chapter

Is not this the fast that I have chosen: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the bands of the yoke, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? [6]   Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh? [7]   Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thy healing shall spring forth speedily; and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of Jehovah shall by thy rearward. [8]   Then shalt thou call, and Jehovah will answer; thou shalt cry, and he will say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking wickedly; [9]   and if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul: then shall thy light rise in darkness, and thine obscurity be as the noonday; [10]   and Jehovah will guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in dry places, and make strong thy bones; and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. [11]   And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places; thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in. [12]   If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, 'and' the holy of Jehovah honorable; and shalt honor it, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking 'thine own' words: [13]   then shalt thou delight thyself in Jehovah; and I will make thee to ride upon the high places of the earth; and I will feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of Jehovah hath spoken it. [14]   

Isaiah 59:6

  ( Listen:  book   chapter )    
Chapter

Their webs shall not become garments, neither shall they cover themselves with their works: their works are works of iniquity, and the act of violence is in their hands. [6]   Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; desolation and destruction are in their paths. [7]   

The way of peace they know not; and there is no justice in their goings: they have made them crooked paths; whosoever goeth therein doth not know peace. [8]   Therefore is justice far from us, neither doth righteousness overtake us: we look for light, but, behold, darkness; for brightness, but we walk in obscurity. [9]   We grope for the wall like the blind; yea, we grope as they that have no eyes: we stumble at noonday as in the twilight; among them that are lusty we are as dead men. [10]   We roar all like bears, and moan sore like doves: we look for justice, but there is none; for salvation, but it is far off from us. [11]   For our transgressions are multiplied before thee, and our sins testify against us; for our transgressions are with us, and as for our iniquities, we know them: [12]   transgressing and denying Jehovah, and turning away from following our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood. [13]   And justice is turned away backward, and righteousness standeth afar off; for truth is fallen in the street, and uprightness cannot enter. [14]   Yea, truth is lacking; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey. And Jehovah saw it, and it displeased him that there was no justice. [15]   And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his own arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it upheld him. [16]   And he put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation upon his head; and he put on garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a mantle. [17]   

According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay, wrath to his adversaries, recompense to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompense. [18]   So shall they fear the name of Jehovah from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun; for he will come as a rushing stream, which the breath of Jehovah driveth. [19]   And a Redeemer will come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith Jehovah. [20]   And as for me, this is my covenant with them, saith Jehovah: my Spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed's seed, saith Jehovah, from henceforth and for ever. [21]

Chapter

The multitude of camels shall cover thee, the dromedaries of Midian and Ephah; all they from Sheba shall come; they shall bring gold and frankincense, and shall proclaim the praises of Jehovah. [6]   All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together unto thee, the rams of Nebaioth shall minister unto thee; they shall come up with acceptance on mine altar; and I will glorify the house of my glory. [7]   Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows? [8]   Surely the isles shall wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring thy sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, for the name of Jehovah thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel, because he hath glorified thee. [9]   And foreigners shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister unto thee: for in my wrath I smote thee, but in my favor have I had mercy on thee. [10]   Thy gates also shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring unto thee the wealth of the nations, and their kings led captive. [11]   

For that nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted. [12]   The glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee, the fir-tree, the pine, and the box-tree together, to beautify the place of my sanctuary; and I will make the place of my feet glorious. [13]   And the sons of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee The city of Jehovah, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel. [14]   Whereas thou hast been forsaken and hated, so that no man passed through thee, I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations. [15]   Thou shalt also suck the milk of the nations, and shalt suck the breast of kings; and thou shalt know that I, Jehovah, am thy Saviour, and thy Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob. [16]   For brass I will bring gold, and for iron I will bring silver, and for wood brass, and for stones iron. I will also make thy officers peace, and thine exactors righteousness. [17]   Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, desolation nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise. [18]   The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but Jehovah will be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory. [19]   Thy sun shall no more go down, neither shall thy moon withdraw itself; for Jehovah will be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended. [20]   

Thy people also shall be all righteous; they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified. [21]   The little one shall become a thousand, and the small one a strong nation; I, Jehovah, will hasten it in its time. [22]

But ye shall be named the priests of Jehovah; men shall call you the ministers of our God: ye shall eat the wealth of the nations, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves. [6]   Instead of your shame 'ye shall have' double; and instead of dishonor they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess double; everlasting joy shall be unto them. [7]   For I, Jehovah, love justice, I hate robbery with iniquity; and I will give them their recompense in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them. [8]   And their seed shall be known among the nations, and their offspring among the peoples; all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which Jehovah hath blessed. [9]   I will greatly rejoice in Jehovah, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with a garland, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels. [10]   For as the earth bringeth forth its bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord Jehovah will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.

Jehovah hath sworn by his right hand, and by the arm of his strength, Surely I will no more give thy grain to be food for thine enemies; and foreigners shall not drink thy new wine, for which thou hast labored: [8]   but they that have garnered it shall eat it, and praise Jehovah; and they that have gathered it shall drink it in the courts of my sanctuary. [9]   Go through, go through the gates; prepare ye the way of the people; cast up, cast up the highway; gather out the stones; lift up an ensign for the peoples. [10]   Behold, Jehovah hath proclaimed unto the end of the earth, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, his reward is with him, and his recompense before him. [11]   And they shall call them The holy people, The redeemed of Jehovah: and thou shalt be called Sought out, A city not forsaken. [12]   

Isaiah 63:6

  ( Listen:  book   chapter )    
Chapter

And I trod down the peoples in mine anger, and made them drunk in my wrath, and I poured out their lifeblood on the earth. [6]   I will make mention of the lovingkindnesses of Jehovah, 'and' the praises of Jehovah, according to all that Jehovah hath bestowed on us, and the great goodness toward the house of Israel, which he hath bestowed on them according to his mercies, and according to the multitude of his lovingkindnesses. [7]   For he said, Surely, they are my people, children that will not deal falsely: so he was their Saviour. [8]   In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them: in his love and in his pity he redeemed them; and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old. [9]   But they rebelled, and grieved his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, 'and' himself fought against them. [10]   

Then he remembered the days of old, Moses 'and' his people, 'saying', Where is he that brought them up out of the sea with the shepherds of his flock? where is he that put his holy Spirit in the midst of them? [11]   that caused his glorious arm to go at the right hand of Moses? that divided the waters before them, to make himself an everlasting name? [12]   that led them through the depths, as a horse in the wilderness, so that they stumbled not? [13]   As the cattle that go down into the valley, the Spirit of Jehovah caused them to rest; so didst thou lead thy people, to make thyself a glorious name. [14]   Look down from heaven, and behold from the habitation of thy holiness and of thy glory: where are thy zeal and thy mighty acts? the yearning of thy heart and thy compassions are restrained toward me. [15]   For thou art our Father, though Abraham knoweth us not, and Israel doth not acknowledge us: thou, O Jehovah, art our Father; our Redeemer from everlasting is thy name. [16]   O Jehovah, why dost thou make us to err from thy ways, and hardenest our heart from thy fear? Return for thy servants' sake, the tribes of thine inheritance. [17]   Thy holy people possessed 'it' but a little while: our adversaries have trodden down thy sanctuary. [18]   We are become as they over whom thou never barest rule, as they that were not called by thy name. [19]

For we are all become as one that is unclean, and all our righteousnesses are as a polluted garment: and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away. [6]   And there is none that calleth upon thy name, that stirreth up himself to take hold of thee; for thou hast hid thy face from us, and hast consumed us by means of our iniquities. [7]   But now, O Jehovah, thou art our Father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand. [8]   

Be not wroth very sore, O Jehovah, neither remember iniquity for ever: behold, look, we beseech thee, we are all thy people. [9]   Thy holy cities are become a wilderness, Zion is become a wilderness, Jerusalem a desolation. [10]   Our holy and our beautiful house, where our fathers praised thee, is burned with fire; and all our pleasant places are laid waste. [11]   Wilt thou refrain thyself for these things, O Jehovah? wilt thou hold thy peace, and afflict us very sore? [12]

  ( Listen:  book   chapter )    
Chapter

Behold, it is written before me: I will not keep silence, but will recompense, yea, I will recompense into their bosom, [6]   your own iniquities, and the iniquities of your fathers together, saith Jehovah, that have burned incense upon the mountains, and blasphemed me upon the hills; therefore will I first measure their work into their bosom. [7]   Thus saith Jehovah, As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one saith, Destroy it not, for a blessing is in it: so will I do for my servants' sake, that I may not destroy them all. [8]   And I will bring forth a seed out of Jacob, and out of Judah an inheritor of my mountains; and my chosen shall inherit it, and my servants shall dwell there. [9]   And Sharon shall be a fold of flocks, and the valley of Achor a place for herds to lie down in, for my people that have sought me. [10]   But ye that forsake Jehovah, that forget my holy mountain, that prepare a table for Fortune, and that fill up mingled wine unto Destiny; [11]   I will destine you to the sword, and ye shall all bow down to the slaughter; because when I called, ye did not answer; when I spake, ye did not hear; but ye did that which was evil in mine eyes, and chose that wherein I delighted not. [12]   Therefore thus saith the Lord Jehovah, Behold, my servants shall eat, but ye shall be hungry; behold, my servants shall drink, but ye shall be thirsty; behold, my servants shall rejoice, but ye shall be put to shame; [13]   behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart, but ye shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall wail for vexation of spirit. [14]   

And ye shall leave your name for a curse unto my chosen; and the Lord Jehovah will slay thee; and he will call his servants by another name: [15]   so that he who blesseth himself in the earth shall bless himself in the God of truth; and he that sweareth in the earth shall swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are hid from mine eyes. [16]   For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former things shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. [17]   But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create; for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy. [18]   And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people; and there shall be heard in her no more the voice of weeping and the voice of crying. [19]   There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days; for the child shall die a hundred years old, and the sinner being a hundred years old shall be accursed. [20]   And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. [21]   They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree shall be the days of my people, and my chosen shall long enjoy the work of their hands. [22]   They shall not labor in vain, nor bring forth for calamity; for they are the seed of the blessed of Jehovah, and their offspring with them. [23]   And it shall come to pass that, before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. [24]   

The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the ox; and dust shall be the serpent's food. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith Jehovah. [25]

A voice of tumult from the city, a voice from the temple, a voice of Jehovah that rendereth recompense to his enemies. [6]   Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man-child. [7]   Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall a land be born in one day? shall a nation be brought forth at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children. [8]   Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? saith Jehovah: shall I that cause to bring forth shut 'the womb'? saith thy God. [9]   Rejoice ye with Jerusalem, and be glad for her, all ye that love her: rejoice for joy with her, all ye that mourn over her; [10]   that ye may suck and be satisfied with the breasts of her consolations; that ye may milk out, and be delighted with the abundance of her glory. [11]   For thus saith Jehovah, Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the nations like an overflowing stream: and ye shall suck 'thereof'; ye shall be borne upon the side, and shall be dandled upon the knees. [12]   As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem. [13]   And ye shall see 'it', and your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish like the tender grass: and the hand of Jehovah shall be known toward his servants; and he will have indignation against his enemies. [14]   

For, behold, Jehovah will come with fire, and his chariots shall be like the whirlwind; to render his anger with fierceness, and his rebuke with flames of fire. [15]   For by fire will Jehovah execute judgment, and by his sword, upon all flesh; and the slain of Jehovah shall be many. [16]   They that sanctify themselves and purify themselves 'to go' unto the gardens, behind one in the midst, eating swine's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, they shall come to an end together, saith Jehovah. [17]   For I 'know' their works and their thoughts: 'the time' cometh, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and shall see my glory. [18]   And I will set a sign among them, and I will send such as escape of them unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal and Javan, to the isles afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the nations. [19]   And they shall bring all your brethren out of all the nations for an oblation unto Jehovah, upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon dromedaries, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, saith Jehovah, as the children of Israel bring their oblation in a clean vessel into the house of Jehovah. [20]   And of them also will I take for priests 'and' for Levites, saith Jehovah. [21]   For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith Jehovah, so shall your seed and your name remain. [22]   And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith Jehovah. [23]   

And they shall go forth, and look upon the dead bodies of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh. [24]
