ComfortH5162 you, comfortH5162 you my people,H5971 saidH559 your God.H430
SpeakH1696 you comfortablyH5921 H3820 to Jerusalem,H3389 and cryH7121 to her, that her warfareH6635 is accomplished,H4390 that her iniquityH5771 is pardoned:H7521 for she has receivedH3947 of the LORD'sH3068 handH3027 doubleH3718 for allH3605 her sins.H2403
The voiceH6963 of him that criesH7121 in the wilderness,H4057 PrepareH6437 you the wayH1870 of the LORD,H3068 make straightH3474 in the desertH6160 a highwayH4546 for our God.H430
EveryH3605 valleyH1516 shall be exalted,H5375 and everyH3605 mountainH2022 and hillH1389 shall be made low:H8213 and the crookedH6121 shall be made straight,H4334 and the roughH7406 places plain:H1237
And the gloryH3519 of the LORDH3068 shall be revealed,H1540 and allH3605 fleshH1320 shall seeH7200 it together:H3162 for the mouthH6310 of the LORDH3068 has spokenH1696 it.
The voiceH6963 said,H559 Cry.H7121 And he said,H559 WhatH4100 shall I cry?H7121 AllH3605 fleshH1320 is grass,H2682 and allH3605 the goodlinessH2617 thereof is as the flowerH6731 of the field:H7704
The grassH2682 wither,H3001 the flowerH6731 fades:H5034 becauseH3588 the spiritH7307 of the LORDH3068 blowsH5380 on it: surelyH403 the peopleH5971 is grass.H2682
The grassH2682 wither,H3001 the flowerH6731 fades:H5034 but the wordH1697 of our GodH430 shall standH6965 for ever.H5769
O Zion,H6726 that bringH1319 goodH1319 tidings,H1319 getH5927 you up intoH5921 the highH1364 mountain;H2022 O Jerusalem,H3389 that bringH1319 goodH1319 tidings,H1319 liftH7311 up your voiceH6963 with strength;H3581 liftH7311 it up, be not afraid;H3372 sayH559 to the citiesH5892 of Judah,H3063 BeholdH2009 your God!H430
Behold,H2009 the LordH136 GODH3069 will comeH935 with strongH2389 hand, and his armH2220 shall ruleH4910 for him: behold,H2009 his rewardH7939 is with him, and his workH6468 beforeH6440 him.
He shall feedH7462 his flockH5739 like a shepherd:H7462 he shall gatherH6908 the lambsH2922 with his arm,H2220 and carryH5375 them in his bosom,H2436 and shall gently leadH5095 those that are with young.H5763
WhoH4310 has measuredH4058 the watersH4325 in the hollowH8168 of his hand, and metedH8505 out heavenH8064 with the span,H2239 and comprehendedH3557 the dustH6083 of the earthH776 in a measure,H7991 and weighedH8254 the mountainsH2022 in scales,H6425 and the hillsH1389 in a balance?H3976
WhoH4310 has directedH8505 the SpiritH7307 of the LORD,H3068 or being his counselorH6098 has taughtH3045 him?
With whomH4310 took he counsel,H3289 and who instructedH995 him, and taughtH3925 him in the pathH734 of judgment,H4941 and taughtH3925 him knowledge,H1847 and showedH3045 to him the wayH1870 of understanding?H8394
Behold,H2005 the nationsH1471 are as a dropH4752 of a bucket,H1805 and are countedH2803 as the small dustH7834 of the balance:H3976 behold,H2005 he takesH5190 up the islesH339 as a veryH1851 littleH1851 thing.
And LebanonH3844 is not sufficientH1767 to burn,H1197 norH369 the beastsH2416 thereof sufficientH1767 for a burntH5930 offering.
AllH3605 nationsH1471 beforeH5048 him are as nothing;H369 and they are countedH2803 to him lessH657 than nothing,H657 H8414 and vanity.H8414
To whomH4310 then will you likenH1819 God?H410 or whatH4100 likenessH1823 will you compareH6186 to him?
The workmanH2796 meltsH5258 a gravenH6459 image, and the goldsmithH6884 spreadsH7554 it over with gold,H2091 and castsH6884 silverH3701 chains.H7569
He that is so impoverishedH5533 that he has noH3808 oblationH8641 choosesH977 a treeH6086 that will not rot;H7537 he seeksH1245 to him a cunningH2450 workmanH2796 to prepareH3559 a gravenH6459 image, that shall not be moved.H4131
Have you not known?H3045 have you not heard?H8085 has it not been toldH5046 you from the beginning?H7218 have you not understoodH995 from the foundationsH4146 of the earth?H776
It is he that sitsH3427 on the circleH2329 of the earth,H776 and the inhabitantsH3427 thereof are as grasshoppers;H2284 that stretchesH5186 out the heavensH8064 as a curtain,H1852 and spreadsH4969 them out as a tentH168 to dwellH3427 in:
That bringsH5414 the princesH7336 to nothing;H369 he makesH6213 the judgesH8199 of the earthH776 as vanity.H8414
Yes,H637 they shall not be planted;H5193 yes,H637 they shall not be sown:H2232 yes,H637 their stockH1503 shall not takeH3947 rootH8327 in the earth:H776 and he shall alsoH1571 blowH5398 on them, and they shall wither,H3001 and the whirlwindH5591 shall takeH5375 them away as stubble.H7179
To whomH4310 then will you likenH1819 me, or shall I be equal?H7737 saidH559 the HolyH6918 One.
LiftH5375 up your eyesH5869 on high,H4791 and beholdH7200 whoH4310 has createdH1254 theseH428 things, that bringsH3318 out their hostH6635 by number:H4557 he callsH7121 them allH3605 by namesH8034 by the greatnessH7230 of his might,H202 for that he is strongH533 in power;H3581 not oneH376 fails.H5737
WhyH4100 sayH559 you, O Jacob,H3290 and speak,H1696 O Israel,H3478 My wayH1870 is hidH5641 from the LORD,H3068 and my judgmentH4941 is passedH5674 overH5674 from my God?H430
Have you not known?H3045 have you not heard,H8085 that the everlastingH5769 God,H430 the LORD,H3068 the CreatorH1254 of the endsH7098 of the earth,H776 faintsH3286 not, neitherH3808 is weary?H3021 there is noH369 searchingH2714 of his understanding.H8394
He givesH5414 powerH3581 to the faint;H3287 and to them that have noH369 mightH202 he increasesH7235 strength.H6109
Even the youthsH5288 shall faintH3286 and be weary,H3021 and the youngH5288 H970 men shall utterly fall:H3782
But they that waitH6960 on the LORDH3068 shall renewH2498 their strength;H3581 they shall mountH5927 up with wingsH83 as eagles;H5404 they shall run,H7323 and not be weary;H3021 and they shall walk,H3212 and not faint.H3286
