Yet nowH6258 hear,H8085 O JacobH3290 my servant;H5650 and Israel,H3478 whom I have chosen:H977
ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 that madeH6213 you, and formedH3335 you from the womb,H990 which will helpH5826 you; FearH3372 not, O Jacob,H3290 my servant;H5650 and you, Jesurun,H3484 whom I have chosen.H977
For I will pourH3332 waterH4325 on him that is thirsty,H6771 and floodsH5140 on the dryH3004 ground: I will pourH3332 my spiritH7307 on your seed,H2233 and my blessingH1293 on your offspring:H6631
And they shall springH6779 up as amongH996 the grass,H2682 as willowsH6155 by the waterH4325 courses.H2988
One shall say,H559 I am the LORD's;H3068 and anotherH2088 shall callH7121 himself by the nameH8034 of Jacob;H3290 and anotherH2088 shall subscribeH3789 with his handH3027 to the LORD,H3068 and surnameH3655 himself by the nameH8034 of Israel.H3478
ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 the KingH4428 of Israel,H3478 and his redeemerH1350 the LORDH3068 of hosts;H6635 I am the first,H7223 and I am the last;H314 and besideH1107 me there is noH369 God.H430
And who,H4310 as I, shall call,H7121 and shall declareH5046 it, and set it in orderH6186 for me, since I appointedH7760 the ancientH5769 people?H5971 and the things that are coming,H857 and shall come,H935 let them showH5046 to them.
FearH6342 you not, neitherH408 be afraid:H7297 have not I toldH8085 you from that time,H227 and have declaredH5046 it? you are even my witnesses.H5707 Is there a GodH433 besideH1107 me? yes, there is noH369 God;H6697 I knowH3045 not any.
They that makeH3335 a gravenH6459 image are allH3605 of them vanity;H8414 and their delectableH2530 things shall not profit;H3276 and they are their own witnesses;H5707 they seeH7200 not, norH1077 know;H3045 that they may be ashamed.H954
WhoH4310 has formedH3335 a god,H410 or moltenH5258 a gravenH6459 image that is profitableH3276 for nothing?H1115
Behold,H2005 allH3605 his fellowsH2270 shall be ashamed:H954 and the workmen,H2796 they are of men:H120 let them allH3605 be gatheredH6908 together, let them standH5975 up; yet they shall fear,H6342 and they shall be ashamedH954 together.H3162
The smithH2796 H1270 with the tongsH4621 both worksH6466 in the coals,H6352 and fashionsH3335 it with hammers,H4717 and worksH6466 it with the strengthH3581 of his arms:H2220 yes,H1571 he is hungry,H7456 and his strengthH3581 fails:H369 he drinksH8354 noH3808 water,H4325 and is faint.H3286
The carpenterH2796 H6086 stretchesH5186 out his rule;H6957 he marksH8388 it out with a line;H8279 he fitsH6213 it with planes,H4741 and he marksH8388 it out with the compass,H4230 and makesH6213 it after the figureH8403 of a man,H376 according to the beautyH8597 of a man;H120 that it may remainH3427 in the house.H1004
He hewsH3772 him down cedars,H730 and takesH3947 the cypressH8645 and the oak,H437 which he strengthensH553 for himself among the treesH6086 of the forest:H3293 he plantsH5195 an ash,H766 and the rainH1653 does nourishH1431 it.
Then shall it be for a manH120 to burn:H1197 for he will takeH3947 thereof, and warmH2552 himself; yes,H637 he kindlesH5400 it, and bakesH644 bread;H3899 yes,H637 he makesH6466 a god,H410 and worshipsH7812 it; he makesH6213 it a gravenH6459 image, and fallsH5456 downH5456 thereto.
He burnsH8313 partH2677 thereof in the fire;H784 with partH2677 thereof he eatsH398 flesh;H1320 he roastsH6740 roast,H6748 and is satisfied:H7646 yes,H637 he warmsH2552 himself, and said,H559 Aha,H253 I am warm,H2552 I have seenH7200 the fire:H217
And the residueH7611 thereof he makesH6213 a god,H410 even his gravenH6459 image: he fallsH5456 downH5456 to it, and worshipsH7812 it, and praysH6419 to it, and said,H559 DeliverH5337 me; for you are my god.H410
They have not knownH3045 norH3808 understood:H995 for he has shutH2902 their eyes,H5869 that they cannot see;H7200 and their hearts,H3826 that they cannot understand.H7919
And noneH3808 considersH7725 in his heart,H3820 neitherH3808 is there knowledgeH1847 norH3808 understandingH8394 to say,H559 I have burnedH8314 partH2677 of it in the fire;H784 yes,H637 alsoH637 I have bakedH644 breadH3899 on the coalsH1513 thereof; I have roastedH6740 flesh,H1320 and eatenH398 it: and shall I makeH6213 the residueH3499 thereof an abomination?H8441 shall I fallH5456 downH5456 to the stockH944 of a tree?H6086
He feedsH7462 on ashes:H665 a deceivedH2048 heartH3820 has turnedH5186 him aside,H5186 that he cannotH3808 deliverH5337 his soul,H5315 norH3808 say,H559 Is there not a lieH3576 in my rightH3225 hand?H3225
RememberH2142 these,H428 O JacobH3290 and Israel;H3478 for you are my servant:H5650 I have formedH3335 you; you are my servant:H5650 O Israel,H3478 you shall not be forgottenH5382 of me.
I have blottedH4229 out, as a thick cloud,H5645 your transgressions,H6588 and, as a cloud,H6051 your sins:H2403 returnH7725 to me; for I have redeemedH1350 you.
Sing,H7442 O you heavens;H8064 for the LORDH3068 has doneH6213 it: shout,H7321 you lowerH8482 parts of the earth:H776 breakH6476 forth into singing,H7440 you mountains,H2022 O forest,H3293 and everyH3605 treeH6086 therein: for the LORDH3068 has redeemedH1350 Jacob,H3290 and glorifiedH6286 himself in Israel.H3478
ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORD,H3068 your redeemer,H1350 and he that formedH3335 you from the womb,H990 I am the LORDH3068 that makesH6213 allH3605 things; that stretchesH5186 forth the heavensH8064 alone;H905 that spreadsH7554 abroadH7554 the earthH776 by myself;
That frustratesH6565 the tokensH226 of the liars,H907 and makes divinersH7080 mad;H1984 that turnsH7725 wiseH2450 men backward,H268 and makes their knowledgeH1847 foolish;H5528
That confirmsH6965 the wordH1697 of his servant,H5650 and performesH7999 the counselH6098 of his messengers;H4397 that saidH559 to Jerusalem,H3389 You shall be inhabited;H3427 and to the citiesH5892 of Judah,H3063 You shall be built,H1129 and I will raiseH6965 up the decayedH2723 places thereof:
That saidH559 to the deep,H6683 Be dry,H2717 and I will dryH3001 up your rivers:H5103
That saidH559 of Cyrus,H3566 He is my shepherd,H7462 and shall performH7999 allH3605 my pleasure:H2656 even sayingH559 to Jerusalem,H3389 You shall be built;H1129 and to the temple,H1964 Your foundationH3245 shall be laid.
