ListenH8085 to me, you that followH7291 after righteousness,H6664 you that seekH1245 the LORD:H3068 lookH5027 to the rockH6697 from where you are hewn,H2672 and to the holeH4718 of the pitH953 from where you are dig.H5365
LookH5027 to AbrahamH85 your father,H1 and to SarahH8283 that boreH2342 you: for I calledH7121 him alone,H259 and blessedH1288 him, and increasedH7235 him.
For the LORDH3068 shall comfortH5162 Zion:H6726 he will comfortH5162 allH3605 her wasteH2723 places; and he will makeH7760 her wildernessH4057 like Eden,H5731 and her desertH6160 like the gardenH1588 of the LORD;H3068 joyH8342 and gladnessH8057 shall be foundH4672 therein, thanksgiving,H8426 and the voiceH6963 of melody.H2172
ListenH7181 to me, my people;H5971 and give earH238 to me, O my nation:H3816 for a lawH8451 shall proceedH3318 from me, and I will make my judgmentH4941 to restH7280 for a lightH216 of the people.H5971
My righteousnessH6664 is near;H7138 my salvationH3468 is goneH3318 forth,H3318 and my armsH2220 shall judgeH8199 the people;H5971 the islesH339 shall waitH6960 onH413 me, and on my armH2220 shall they trust.H3176
LiftH5375 up your eyesH5869 to the heavens,H8064 and lookH5027 on the earthH776 beneath:H8478 for the heavensH8064 shall vanishH4414 away like smoke,H6227 and the earthH776 shall wax oldH1086 like a garment,H899 and they that dwellH3427 therein shall dieH4191 in likeH3644 manner:H3654 but my salvationH3444 shall be for ever,H5769 and my righteousnessH6666 shall not be abolished.H2865
ListenH8085 to me, you that knowH3045 righteousness,H6664 the peopleH5971 in whose heartH3820 is my law;H8451 fearH3372 you not the reproachH2781 of men,H582 neitherH408 be you afraidH2865 of their revilings.H1421
For the mothH6211 shall eatH398 them up like a garment,H899 and the wormH5580 shall eatH398 them like wool:H6785 but my righteousnessH6666 shall be for ever,H5769 and my salvationH3444 from generationH1755 to generation.H1755
Awake,H5782 awake,H5782 putH3847 on strength,H5797 O armH2220 of the LORD;H3068 awake,H5782 as in the ancientH6924 days,H3117 in the generationsH1755 of old.H5769 Are you not it that has cutH2672 Rahab,H7294 and woundedH2490 the dragon?H8577
Are you not it which has driedH2717 the sea,H3220 the watersH4325 of the greatH7227 deep;H8415 that has madeH7760 the depthsH4615 of the seaH3220 a wayH1870 for the ransomedH1350 to passH5674 over?H5674
Therefore the redeemedH6299 of the LORDH3068 shall return,H7725 and comeH935 with singingH7440 to Zion;H6726 and everlastingH5769 joyH8057 shall be on their head:H7218 they shall obtainH5381 gladnessH8057 and joy;H8057 and sorrowH3015 and mourningH585 shall fleeH5127 away.
I, even I, am he that comfortsH5162 you: whoH4310 are you, that you should be afraidH3372 of a manH582 that shall die,H4191 and of the sonH1121 of manH120 which shall be madeH5414 as grass;H2682
And forgetH7911 the LORDH3068 your maker,H6213 that has stretchedH5186 forth the heavens,H8064 and laid the foundationsH3245 of the earth;H776 and have fearedH6342 continuallyH8548 everyH3605 dayH3117 becauseH6440 of the furyH2534 of the oppressor,H6693 as ifH834 he were readyH3559 to destroy?H7843 and whereH346 is the furyH2534 of the oppressor?H6693
The captiveH6808 exileH6808 hastensH4116 that he may be loosed,H6605 and that he should not dieH4191 in the pit,H7845 norH3808 that his breadH3899 should fail.H2637
But I am the LORDH3068 your God,H430 that dividedH7280 the sea,H3220 whose wavesH1530 roared:H1993 The LORDH3068 of hostsH6635 is his name.H8034
And I have putH7760 my wordsH1697 in your mouth,H6310 and I have coveredH3680 you in the shadowH6738 of my hand,H3027 that I may plantH5193 the heavens,H8064 and lay the foundationsH3245 of the earth,H776 and sayH559 to Zion,H6726 You are my people.H5971
Awake,H5782 awake,H5782 standH6965 up, O Jerusalem,H3389 whichH834 have drunkH8354 at the handH3027 of the LORDH3068 the cupH3563 of his fury;H2534 you have drunkenH8354 the dregsH6907 of the cupH3563 of trembling,H8653 and wrungH4680 them out.
There is noneH369 to guideH5095 her among allH3605 the sonsH1121 whom she has broughtH3205 forth;H3205 neitherH369 is there any that takesH2388 her by the handH3027 of allH3605 the sonsH1121 that she has broughtH1431 up.
TheseH2007 twoH8147 things are comeH7122 to you; whoH4310 shall be sorryH5110 for you? desolation,H7701 and destruction,H7667 and the famine,H7458 and the sword:H2719 by whomH4310 shall I comfortH5162 you?
Your sonsH1121 have fainted,H5968 they lieH7901 at the headH7218 of allH3605 the streets,H2351 as a wildH8377 bullH8377 in a net:H4364 they are fullH4392 of the furyH2534 of the LORD,H3068 the rebukeH1606 of your God.H430
ThereforeH3651 hearH8085 nowH4994 this,H2063 you afflicted,H6041 and drunken,H7937 but not with wine:H3196
ThusH3541 saidH559 your Lord the LORD,H3068 and your GodH430 that pleadsH7378 the cause of his people,H5971 Behold,H2009 I have takenH3947 out of your handH3027 the cupH3563 of trembling,H8653 even the dregsH6907 of the cupH3563 of my fury;H2534 you shall noH3808 moreH3254 drinkH8354 it again:H5750
But I will putH7760 it into the handH3027 of them that afflictH3013 you; whichH834 have saidH559 to your soul,H5315 BowH7812 down,H7812 that we may goH5674 over:H5674 and you have laidH7760 your bodyH1460 as the ground,H776 and as the street,H2351 to them that wentH5674 over.H5674
