X Isaiah

1:1 The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah.

X Isaiah

1:2 Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for YHWH has spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me.

X Isaiah

1:3 The ox knows his owner, and the donkey his master's crib: but Israel does not know, my people does not consider.

X Isaiah

1:4 Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evil-doers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken YHWH, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel to anger, they are gone away backward.

X Isaiah

1:5 Why should you* be stricken any more? you* will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.

X Isaiah

1:6 From the sole of the foot even to the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment.

X Isaiah

1:7 Your* country is desolate, your* cities are burned with fire: your* land, strangers devour it in your* presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.

X Isaiah

1:8 And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city.

X Isaiah

1:9 Except YHWH of hosts had left to us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom; we should have been like Gomorrah.

X Isaiah

1:10 Hear the word of YHWH, you* rulers of Sodom; give ear to the law of our Elohim, you* people of Gomorrah.

X Isaiah

1:11 To what purpose is the multitude of your* sacrifices to me? says YHWH: I am full of the burnt-offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he-goats.

X Isaiah

1:12 When you* come to appear before me, who has required this at your* hand, to tread my courts?

X Isaiah

1:13 Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination to me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot endure; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.

X Isaiah

1:14 Your* new moons and your* appointed feasts my soul hates: they are a trouble to me; I am weary to bear them.

X Isaiah

1:15 And when you* spread forth your* hands, I will hide my eyes from you*: yes, when you* make many prayers, I will not hear: your* hands are full of blood.

X Isaiah

1:16 Wash you*, make yourselves* clean; put away the evil of your* doings from before my eyes; cease to do evil;

X Isaiah

1:17 Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.

X Isaiah

1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, says YHWH: though your* sins are as scarlet, they shall be white as snow, though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

X Isaiah

1:19 If you* are willing and obedient, you* shall eat the good of the land:

X Isaiah

1:20 But if you* refuse and rebel, you* shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of YHWH has spoken it.

X Isaiah

1:21 How is the faithful city become a harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.

X Isaiah

1:22 Your silver is become dross, your wine mixed with water:

X Isaiah

1:23 Your princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loves gifts, and follows after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither does the cause of the widow come to them.

X Isaiah

1:24 Therefore says the Master, YHWH of hosts, the mighty One of Israel, Ah, I will ease me of my adversaries, and avenge me of my enemies:

X Isaiah

1:25 And I will turn my hand upon you, and thoroughly purge away your dross, and take away all your tin:

X Isaiah

1:26 And I will restore your judges as at the first, and your counselors as at the beginning: afterward you shall be called, The city of righteousness, the faithful city.

X Isaiah

1:27 Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness.

X Isaiah

1:28 And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake YHWH shall be consumed.

X Isaiah

1:29 For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which you* have desired, and you* shall be confounded for the gardens that you* have chosen.

X Isaiah

1:30 For you* shall be as an oak whose leaf fades, and as a garden that has no water.

X Isaiah

1:31 And the strong shall be as tow, and the maker of it as a spark, and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench them.

X Isaiah

2:1 The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.

X Isaiah

2:2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mount of YHWH'S house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it.

X Isaiah

2:3 And many people shall go and say, Come you*, and let us go up to the mountain of YHWH, to the house of the Elohim of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of YHWH from Jerusalem.

X Isaiah

2:4 And he will judge among the nations, and will rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plow-shares, and their spears into pruning-hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.

X Isaiah

2:5 O house of Jacob, come you*, and let us walk in the light of YHWH.

X Isaiah

2:6 Therefore you have forsaken your people the house of Jacob, because they are replenished from the east, and are sooth-sayers like the Philistines, and they please themselves in the children of strangers.

X Isaiah

2:7 Their land also is full of silver and gold, neither is there any end of their treasures; their land is also full of horses, neither is there any end of their chariots:

X Isaiah

2:8 Their land also is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made:

X Isaiah

2:9 And the mean man bows down, and the great man humbles himself: therefore forgive them not.

X Isaiah

2:10 Enter into the rock, and hide you in the dust, for fear of YHWH, and for the glory of his majesty.

X Isaiah

2:11 The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be abased, and YHWH alone shall be exalted in that day.

X Isaiah

2:12 For the day of YHWH of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low:

X Isaiah

2:13 And upon all the cedars of Lebanon, that are high and lifted up, and upon all the oaks of Bashan,

X Isaiah

2:14 And upon all the high mountains, and upon all the hills that are lifted up,

X Isaiah

2:15 And upon every high tower, and upon every fortified wall,

X Isaiah

2:16 And upon all the ships of Tarshish, and upon all pleasant pictures.

X Isaiah

2:17 And the loftiness of man shall be abased, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and YHWH alone shall be exalted in that day.

X Isaiah

2:18 And the idols he will utterly abolish.

X Isaiah

2:19 And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of YHWH, and for the glory of his majesty, when he rises to shake terribly the earth.

X Isaiah

2:20 In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats;

X Isaiah

2:21 To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of YHWH, and for the glory of his majesty, when he rises to shake terribly the earth.

X Isaiah

2:22 Cease you* from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?

X Isaiah

3:1 For behold, the Master, YHWH of hosts, does take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the rod and the staff, the whole support of bread, and the whole support of water,

X Isaiah

3:2 The mighty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient,

X Isaiah

3:3 The captain of fifty, and the honorable man, and the counselor, and the skillful artificer, and the eloquent orator.

X Isaiah

3:4 And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them.

X Isaiah

3:5 And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbor: the child shall behave himself proudly against the elder, and the base against the honorable.

X Isaiah

3:6 When a man shall take hold of his brother of the house of his father, saying, You have clothing, be you our ruler, and let this ruin be under your hand:

X Isaiah

3:7 In that day shall he swear, saying, I will not be a healer; for in my house is neither bread nor clothing: make me not a ruler of the people.

X Isaiah

3:8 For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen: because their tongue and their doings are against YHWH, to provoke the eyes of his glory.

X Isaiah

3:9 The show of their countenance does witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe to their soul! for they have rewarded evil to themselves.

X Isaiah

3:10 Say you* to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.

X Isaiah

3:11 Woe to the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him.

X Isaiah

3:12 As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they who lead you cause you to err, and destroy the way of your paths.

X Isaiah

3:13 YHWH stands up to plead, and stands to judge the people.

X Isaiah

3:14 YHWH will enter into judgment with the elders of his people, and with their princes: for you* have eaten up the vineyard; the spoil of the poor is in your* houses.

X Isaiah

3:15 What mean you* that you* beat my people to pieces, and grind the faces of the poor? says the Sovereign YHWH of hosts.

X Isaiah

3:16 Moreover YHWH says, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with extended necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet:

X Isaiah

3:17 Therefore the Master will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and YHWH will uncover their secret parts.

X Isaiah

3:18 In that day the Master will take away the show of their tinkling ornaments about their feet, and their cauls, and their round tires like the moon.

X Isaiah

3:19 The chains, and the bracelets, and the mufflers,

X Isaiah

3:20 The bonnets, and the ornaments of the legs, and the head-bands, and the tablets, and the ear-rings,

X Isaiah

3:21 The rings, and nose-jewels,

X Isaiah

3:22 The changeable suits of apparel, and the mantles, and the wimples, and the crisping-pins,

X Isaiah

3:23 The glasses, and the fine linen, and the hoods, and the vails.

X Isaiah

3:24 And it shall come to pass, that instead of sweet smell there shall be an offensive odor; and instead of a girdle a rent; and instead of well set hair baldness; and instead of a stomacher a girding of sackcloth; and burning instead of beauty.

X Isaiah

3:25 Your men shall fall by the sword, and your mighty in the war.

X Isaiah

3:26 And her gates shall lament and mourn; and she being desolate, shall sit upon the ground.

X Isaiah

4:1 And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by your name, to take away our reproach.

X Isaiah

4:2 In that day shall the branch of YHWH be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and comely for them that have escaped of Israel.

X Isaiah

4:3 And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remains in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, even every one that is written among the living in Jerusalem:

X Isaiah

4:4 When the Master shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst of it by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning.

X Isaiah

4:5 And YHWH will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a defense.

X Isaiah

4:6 And there shall be a tabernacle for a shade in the day time from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a covert from storm and from rain.

X Isaiah

5:1 Now will I sing to my well-beloved a song of my beloved concerning his vineyard. My well-beloved has a vineyard in a very fruitful hill:

X Isaiah

5:2 And he fenced it, and gathered out the stones of it, and planted it with the choicest vine, and built a tower in the midst of it, and also made a wine-press therein: and he expected that it would bring forth grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes.

X Isaiah

5:3 And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem, and men of Judah, judge, I pray you*, between me and my vineyard.

X Isaiah

5:4 What more could have been done to my vineyard, that I have not done in it? Why, when I expected that it would bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild grapes?

X Isaiah

5:5 And now come; I will tell you* what I will do to my vineyard: I will take away its hedge, and it shall be eaten up; and break down the wall of it, and it shall be trodden down:

X Isaiah

5:6 And I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but there shall come up briers and thorns: I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it.

X Isaiah

5:7 For the vineyard of YHWH of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah his pleasant plant: and he looked for judgment, but behold oppression; for righteousness, but behold a cry.

X Isaiah

5:8 Woe to them that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there is no place, that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth!

X Isaiah

5:9 In my ears said YHWH of hosts, Of a truth many houses shall be desolate, even great and fair, without inhabitant.

X Isaiah

5:10 Yes, ten acres of vineyard shall yield one bath, and the seed of a homer shall yield an ephah.

X Isaiah

5:11 Woe to them that rise early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflameth them!

X Isaiah

5:12 And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of YHWH, neither consider the operation of his hands.

X Isaiah

5:13 Therefore my people have gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honorable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst.

X Isaiah

5:14 Therefore hell has enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoices, shall descend into it.

X Isaiah

5:15 And the mean man shall be brought down, and the mighty man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be abased.

X Isaiah

5:16 But YHWH of hosts shall be exalted in judgment, and Elohim that is holy shall be sanctified in righteousness.

X Isaiah

5:17 Then shall the lambs feed after their manner, and the waste places of the fat ones shall strangers eat.

X Isaiah

5:18 Woe to them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart-rope:

X Isaiah

5:19 That say, Let him make speed, and hasten his work, that we may see it: and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw near and come, that we may know it!

X Isaiah

5:20 Woe to them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

X Isaiah

5:21 Woe to them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

X Isaiah

5:22 Woe to them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:

X Isaiah

5:23 Who justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!

X Isaiah

5:24 Therefore as the fire devours the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of YHWH of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

X Isaiah

5:25 Therefore is the anger of YHWH kindled against his people, and he has stretched forth his hand against them, and has smitten them: and the hills trembled, and their carcasses were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

X Isaiah

5:26 And he will lift up an ensign to the nations from afar, and will hiss to them from the end of the earth: and behold, they shall come with speed swiftly:

X Isaiah

5:27 None shall be weary nor stumble among them; none shall slumber nor sleep; neither shall the girdle of their loins be loosed, nor the latchet of their shoes be broken:

X Isaiah

5:28 Whose arrows are sharp, and all their bows bent, their horses' hoofs shall be counted like flint, and their wheels like a whirlwind:

X Isaiah

5:29 Their roaring shall be like a lion, they shall roar like young lions: yes, they shall roar, and lay hold of the prey, and shall carry it away safe, and none shall deliver it.

X Isaiah

5:30 And in that day they shall roar against them like the roaring of the sea: and if one looks to the land, behold darkness and sorrow, and the light is darkened in its heavens.

X Isaiah

6:1 In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Master sitting upon a throne, high and elevated, and his train filled the temple.

X Isaiah

6:2 Above it stood seraphim: each one had six wings; with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.

X Isaiah

6:3 And one cried to another, and said, Holy, holy, holy is YHWH of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.

X Isaiah

6:4 And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.

X Isaiah

6:5 Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for my eyes have seen the King, YHWH of hosts.

X Isaiah

6:6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:

X Isaiah

6:7 And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this has touched your lips; and your iniquity is taken away, and your sin purged.

X Isaiah

6:8 Also I heard the voice of the Master, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

X Isaiah

6:9 And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear you* indeed, but understand not; and see you* indeed, but perceive not.

X Isaiah

6:10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.

X Isaiah

6:11 Then said I, Master, how long? And he answered, Until the cities shall be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate;

X Isaiah

6:12 And YHWH shall have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land.

X Isaiah

6:13 But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil-tree, and as an oak whose substance is in them, when they cast their leaves: so the holy seed shall be the substance of it.

X Isaiah

7:1 And it came to pass in the days of Ahaz the son of Jotham, the son of Uzziah, king of Judah, that Rezin the king of Syria, and Pekah the son of Remaliah, king of Israel, went up towards Jerusalem to war against it, but could not prevail against it.

X Isaiah

7:2 And it was told the house of David, saying, Syria is confederate with Ephraim. And his heart was moved, and the heart of his people, as the trees of the wood are moved with the wind.

X Isaiah

7:3 Then said YHWH to Isaiah, Go forth now to meet Ahaz, you, and Shear-jashub your son, at the end of the conduit of the upper pool in the highway of the fuller's field;

X Isaiah

7:4 And say to him, Take heed, and be quiet; fear not, neither be faint-hearted for the two tails of these smoking fire-brands, for the fierce anger of Rezin with Syria, and of the son of Remaliah.

X Isaiah

7:5 Because Syria, Ephraim, and the son of Remaliah, have taken evil counsel against you, saying,

X Isaiah

7:6 Let us go up against Judah, and harass it, and let us make a breach therein for us, and set a king in the midst of it, even the son of Tabeal:

X Isaiah

7:7 Thus says the Sovereign YHWH, It shall not stand, neither shall it come to pass.

X Isaiah

7:8 For the head of Syria is Damascus, and the head of Damascus is Rezin; and within sixty five years shall Ephraim be broken, that it be not a people.

X Isaiah

7:9 And the head of Ephraim is Samaria, and the head of Samaria is Remaliah's son. If you* will not believe, surely you* shall not be established.

X Isaiah

7:10 Moreover, YHWH spoke again to Ahaz, saying,

X Isaiah

7:11 Ask you a sign from YHWH your Elohim; ask it either in the depth, or in the hight above.

X Isaiah

7:12 But Ahaz said, I will not ask, neither will I tempt YHWH.

X Isaiah

7:13 And he said, Hear you* now, O house of David? Is it a small thing for you* to weary men, but will you* weary my Elohim also?

X Isaiah

7:14 Therefore the Sovereign himself will give you* a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

X Isaiah

7:15 Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good.

X Isaiah

7:16 For before the child shall know to refuse the evil, and choose the good, the land that you abhor shall be forsaken by both her kings.

X Isaiah

7:17 YHWH will bring upon you, and upon your people, and upon your father's house, days that have not come, from the day that Ephraim departed from Judah; even the king of Assyria.

X Isaiah

7:18 And it shall come to pass in that day, that YHWH will hiss for the fly that is in the uttermost part of the rivers of Egypt, and for the bee that is in the land of Assyria.

X Isaiah

7:19 And they shall come, and shall rest all of them in the desolate valleys, and in the holes of the rocks, and upon all thorns, and upon all bushes.

X Isaiah

7:20 In the same day will the Master shave with a razor that is hired, namely, by them beyond the river, by the king of Assyria, the head, and the hair of the feet: and it shall also consume the beard.

X Isaiah

7:21 And it shall come to pass in that day, that a man shall nourish a young cow, and two sheep;

X Isaiah

7:22 And it shall come to pass, for the abundance of milk that they shall give, he shall eat butter: for butter and honey shall every one eat that is left in the land.

X Isaiah

7:23 And it shall come to pass in that day, that every place shall be, where there were a thousand vines at a thousand pieces of silver, it shall even be for briers and thorns.

X Isaiah

7:24 With arrows and with bows shall men come toward that place; because all the land shall become briers and thorns.

X Isaiah

7:25 And on all hills that shall be digged with the mattock, there shall not come toward that place the fear of briers and thorns: but it shall be for the sending forth of oxen, and for the treading of lesser cattle.

X Isaiah

8:1 Moreover, YHWH said to me, Take you a great roll, and write in it with a man's pen concerning Maher-shalal-hash-baz.

X Isaiah

8:2 And I took to me faithful witnesses to record, Uriah the priest, and Zechariah the son of Jeberechiah.

X Isaiah

8:3 And I went to the prophetess; and she conceived, and bore a son. Then said YHWH to me, Call his name Maher-shalal-hash-baz.

X Isaiah

8:4 For before the child shall have knowledge to cry, My father, and my mother, the riches of Damascus and the spoil of Samaria shall be taken away before the king of Assyria.

X Isaiah

8:5 YHWH spoke also to me again, saying,

X Isaiah

8:6 Forasmuch as this people refuses the waters of Shiloah that flow gently, and rejoice in Rezin and Remaliah's son;

X Isaiah

8:7 Now therefore, behold, the Master brings up upon them the waters of the river, strong and many, even the king of Assyria, and all his glory: and he shall come up over all its channels, and go over all its banks:

X Isaiah

8:8 And he shall pass through Judah; he shall overflow and go over, he shall reach even to the neck; and the extension of his wings shall fill the breadth of your land, O Immanuel.

X Isaiah

8:9 Associate yourselves*, O you* people, and you* shall be broken in pieces; and give ear, all you* of far countries: gird yourselves*, and you* shall be broken in pieces; gird yourselves*, and you* shall be broken in pieces.

X Isaiah

8:10 Take counsel together, and it shall come to naught; speak the word, and it shall not stand: for Elohim is with us.

X Isaiah

8:11 For YHWH spoke thus to me with a strong hand, and instructed me that I should not walk in the way of this people, saying,

X Isaiah

8:12 Say you* not, A confederacy, to all them to whom this people shall say, A confederacy; neither fear you* their fear, nor be afraid.

X Isaiah

8:13 Sanctify YHWH of hosts himself; and let him be your* fear, and let him be your* dread.

X Isaiah

8:14 And he will be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offense to both the houses of Israel, for a trap and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

X Isaiah

8:15 And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be insnared, and be taken.

X Isaiah

8:16 Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples.

X Isaiah

8:17 And I will wait upon YHWH, that hides his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him.

X Isaiah

8:18 Behold, I and the children whom YHWH has given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from YHWH of hosts, who dwells in mount Zion.

X Isaiah

8:19 And when they shall say to you*, Seek to them that have familiar spirits, and to wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek to their Elohim? for the living to the dead?

X Isaiah

8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

X Isaiah

8:21 And they shall pass through it, distressed and hungry: and it shall come to pass, that when they shall be hungry, they shall fret themselves, and curse their king and their Elohim, and look upward.

X Isaiah

8:22 And they shall look to the earth; and behold trouble and darkness, dimness of anguish; and they shall be driven to darkness.

X Isaiah

9:1 Nevertheless the dimness shall not be such as was in her distress, when at the first he lightly afflicted the land of Zebulun, and the land of Naphtali, and afterward did more grievously afflict her by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, in Galilee of the nations.

X Isaiah

9:2 The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them has the light shined.

X Isaiah

9:3 You have multiplied the nation, and not increased the joy: they joy before you according to the joy in harvest, and as men rejoice when they divide the spoil.

X Isaiah

9:4 For you have broken the yoke of his burden, and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, as in the day of Midian.

X Isaiah

9:5 For every battle of the warrior is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but this shall be with burning and fuel of fire.

X Isaiah

9:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty Elohim, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

X Isaiah

9:7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from now on even forever. The zeal of YHWH of hosts will perform this.

X Isaiah

9:8 The Master sent a word into Jacob, and it has lighted upon Israel.

X Isaiah

9:9 And all the people shall know, even Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria, that say in the pride and stoutness of heart,

X Isaiah

9:10 The bricks have fallen down, but we will build with cut stones; the sycamores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.

X Isaiah

9:11 Therefore YHWH will set up the adversaries of Rezin against him, and join his enemies together;

X Isaiah

9:12 The Syrians before, and the Philistines behind; and they shall devour Israel with open mouth. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

X Isaiah

9:13 For the people turn not to him that smiteth them, neither do they seek YHWH of hosts.

X Isaiah

9:14 Therefore YHWH will cut off from Israel head and tail, branch and rush, in one day.

X Isaiah

9:15 The ancient and honorable, he is the head; and the prophet that teaches lies, he is the tail.

X Isaiah

9:16 For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led by them are destroyed.

X Isaiah

9:17 Therefore the Master will have no joy in their young men, neither will have mercy on their fatherless and widows: for every one is a hypocrite and an evil-doer, and every mouth speaks folly. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

X Isaiah

9:18 For wickedness burns as the fire: it shall devour the briers and thorns, and shall kindle in the thickets of the forest, and they shall mount up like the rising of smoke.

X Isaiah

9:19 Through the wrath of YHWH of hosts is the land darkened, and the people shall be as the fuel of the fire: no man shall spare his brother.

X Isaiah

9:20 And he shall snatch on the right hand, and be hungry; and he shall eat on the left hand, and they shall not be satisfied: they shall eat every man the flesh of his own arm:

X Isaiah

9:21 Manasseh, Ephraim; and Ephraim, Manasseh: and they together shall be against Judah. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

X Isaiah

10:1 Woe to them that decree unrighteous decrees, and that write grievousness which they have prescribed;

X Isaiah

10:2 To turn aside the needy from judgment, and to take away the right from the poor of my people, that widows may be their prey, and that they may rob the fatherless!

X Isaiah

10:3 And what will you* do in the day of visitation, and in the desolation which shall come from far? to whom will you* flee for help? and where will you* leave your* glory?

X Isaiah

10:4 Without me they shall bow down under the prisoners, and they shall fall under the slain. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

X Isaiah

10:5 O Assyrian, the rod of my anger, and the staff in their hand is my indignation.

X Isaiah

10:6 I will send him against a hypocritical nation, and against the people of my wrath will I give him a charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets.

X Isaiah

10:7 However he means not so, neither does his heart think so; but it is in his heart to destroy and cut off nations not a few.

X Isaiah

10:8 For he says, Are not my princes altogether kings?

X Isaiah

10:9 Is not Calno as Carchemish? is not Hamath as Arpad? is not Samaria as Damascus?

X Isaiah

10:10 As my hand has found the kingdoms of the idols, and whose graven images excelled them of Jerusalem and of Samaria;

X Isaiah

10:11 Shall I not, as I have done to Samaria and her idols, so do to Jerusalem and her idols?

X Isaiah

10:12 Therefore it shall come to pass, that when the Master has performed his whole work upon mount Zion and on Jerusalem, I will punish the fruit of the stout heart of the king of Assyria, and the glory of his high looks.

X Isaiah

10:13 For he says, By the strength of my hand I have done it, and by my wisdom; for I am prudent: and I have removed the bounds of the people, and have robbed their treasures, and I have put down the inhabitants like a valiant man:

X Isaiah

10:14 And my hand has found as a nest the riches of the people: and as one gathers eggs that are left, have I gathered all the earth; and there was none that moved the wing, or opened the mouth, or peeped.

X Isaiah

10:15 Shall the ax boast itself against him that heweth with it? or shall the saw magnify itself against him that moves it? as if the rod should shake itself against them that lift it, or as if the staff should lift itself, as if it were no wood.

X Isaiah

10:16 Therefore will the Master, YHWH of hosts, send among his fat ones leanness; and under his glory he will kindle a burning like the burning of a fire.

X Isaiah

10:17 And the light of Israel shall be for a fire, and his Holy One for a flame: and it shall burn and devour his thorns and his briers in one day;

X Isaiah

10:18 And shall consume the glory of his forest, and of his fruitful field, both soul and body: and they shall be as when a standard-bearer faints.

X Isaiah

10:19 And the rest of the trees of his forest shall be few, that a child may write them.

X Isaiah

10:20 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as have escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again lean upon him that smote them; but shall lean upon YHWH, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.

X Isaiah

10:21 The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob, to the mighty Elohim.

X Isaiah

10:22 For though your people Israel be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: the consumption decreed shall overflow with righteousness.

X Isaiah

10:23 For the Sovereign YHWH of hosts will make a consumption, even determined, in the midst of all the land.

X Isaiah

10:24 Therefore thus says the Sovereign YHWH of hosts, O my people that dwell in Zion, be not afraid of the Assyrian: he shall smite you with a rod, and shall lift up his staff against you, after the manner of Egypt.

X Isaiah

10:25 For yet a very little while, and the indignation shall cease, and my anger in their destruction.

X Isaiah

10:26 And YHWH of hosts will raise up a scourge for him according to the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb: and as his rod was upon the sea, so shall he lift it up after the manner of Egypt.

X Isaiah

10:27 And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off your shoulder, and his yoke from off your neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.

X Isaiah

10:28 He is come to Aiath, he is passed to Migron; at Michmash he has laid up his furniture.

X Isaiah

10:29 They have gone over the passage: they have taken up their lodging at Geba; Ramah is afraid; Gibeah of Saul has fled.

X Isaiah

10:30 Lift up your voice, O daughter of Gallim: cause it to be heard to Laish, O poor Anathoth.

X Isaiah

10:31 Madmenah is removed; the inhabitants of Gebim gather themselves to flee.

X Isaiah

10:32 As yet shall he remain at Nob that day: he shall shake his hand against the mount of the daughter of Zion, the hill of Jerusalem.

X Isaiah

10:33 Behold, the Master, YHWH of hosts will lop the bough with terror: and the high ones of stature shall be cut down, and the haughty shall be humbled.

X Isaiah

10:34 And he shall cut down the thickets of the forests with iron, and Lebanon shall fall by a mighty one.

X Isaiah

11:1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots:

X Isaiah

11:2 And the spirit of YHWH will rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of YHWH;

X Isaiah

11:3 And will make him of quick understanding in the fear of YHWH: and he will not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:

X Isaiah

11:4 But with righteousness will he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he will smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips will he slay the wicked.

X Isaiah

11:5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.

X Isaiah

11:6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.

X Isaiah

11:7 And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.

X Isaiah

11:8 And the suckling child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the den of the basilisk.

X Isaiah

11:9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of YHWH, as the waters cover the sea.

X Isaiah

11:10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.

X Isaiah

11:11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Master will set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.

X Isaiah

11:12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.

X Isaiah

11:13 The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not distress Ephraim.

X Isaiah

11:14 But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines towards the west; they shall spoil them of the east together: they shall lay their hand upon Edom and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them.

X Isaiah

11:15 And YHWH will utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea; and with his mighty wind will he shake his hand over the river, and will smite it in the seven streams, and make men go over dry shod.

X Isaiah

11:16 And there shall be a highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; as it was to Israel in the day that he came up from the land of Egypt.

X Isaiah

12:1 And in that day you shall say, O YHWH, I will praise you: though you were angry with me, your anger is turned away, and you have comforted me.

X Isaiah

12:2 Behold, Elohim is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Sovereign YHWH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.

X Isaiah

12:3 Therefore with joy shall you* draw water out of the wells of salvation.

X Isaiah

12:4 And in that day shall you* say, Praise YHWH, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted.

X Isaiah

12:5 Sing to YHWH; for he has done excellent things: this is known in all the earth.

X Isaiah

12:6 Cry aloud and shout, you inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of you.

X Isaiah

13:1 The burden of Babylon, which Isaiah the son of Amoz saw.

X Isaiah

13:2 Lift you* up a banner upon the high mountain, exalt the voice to them, shake the hand, that they may go into the gates of the nobles.

X Isaiah

13:3 I have commanded my sanctified ones, I have also called my mighty ones for my anger, even them that rejoice in my highness.

X Isaiah

13:4 The noise of a multitude in the mountains, as of a great people; a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations assembled: YHWH of hosts musters the host of the battle.

X Isaiah

13:5 They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, even YHWH, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land.

X Isaiah

13:6 Howl you*; for the day of YHWH is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.

X Isaiah

13:7 Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt:

X Isaiah

13:8 And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travails: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.

X Isaiah

13:9 Behold, the day of YHWH comes, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he will destroy its sinners out of it.

X Isaiah

13:10 For the stars of heaven and its constellations shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.

X Isaiah

13:11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogance of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.

X Isaiah

13:12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.

X Isaiah

13:13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of YHWH of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.

X Isaiah

13:14 And it shall be as the chased roe, and as a sheep that no man takes up: they shall every man turn to his own people, and flee every one to his own land.

X Isaiah

13:15 Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is joined to them shall fall by the sword.

X Isaiah

13:16 Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be plundered, and their wives ravished.

X Isaiah

13:17 Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, who shall not regard silver; and as for gold, they shall not delight in it.

X Isaiah

13:18 Their bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eye shall not spare children.

X Isaiah

13:19 And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees' excellence, shall be as when Elohim overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.

X Isaiah

13:20 It shall never be inhabited, neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation: neither shall the Arabian pitch tent there; neither shall the shepherds make their fold there.

X Isaiah

13:21 But wild beasts of the desert shall lie there; and their houses shall be full of doleful creatures; and owls shall dwell there, and satyrs shall dance there.

X Isaiah

13:22 And the wild beasts of the islands shall cry in their desolate houses, and dragons in their pleasant palaces: and her time is near to come, and her days shall not be prolonged.

X Isaiah

14:1 For YHWH will have mercy on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel, and set them in their own land: and the strangers shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob.

X Isaiah

14:2 And the people shall take them, and bring them to their place: and the house of Israel shall possess them in the land of YHWH for servants and handmaids: and they shall take them captives, whose captives they were; and they shall rule over their oppressors.

X Isaiah

14:3 And it shall come to pass in the day that YHWH shall give you rest from your sorrow, and from your fear, and from the hard bondage in which you were made to serve,

X Isaiah

14:4 That you shall take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How has the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased!

X Isaiah

14:5 YHWH has broken the staff of the wicked, and the scepter of the rulers.

X Isaiah

14:6 He who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, and none hindereth.

X Isaiah

14:7 The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they break forth into singing.

X Isaiah

14:8 Yes, the fir-trees rejoice at you, and the cedars of Lebanon, saying, Since you are laid down, no feller is come up against us.

X Isaiah

14:9 Hell from beneath is moved for you to meet you at your coming: it stirs up the dead for you, even all the chief ones of the earth; it has raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.

X Isaiah

14:10 All they shall speak and say to you, Are you also become weak as we? Are you become like us?

X Isaiah

14:11 Your pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of your viols: the worm is spread under you, and the worms cover you.

X Isaiah

14:12 How are you fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how are you cut down to the ground, which did weaken the nations!

X Isaiah

14:13 For you have said in your heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of Elohim: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

X Isaiah

14:14 I will ascend above the hights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High.

X Isaiah

14:15 Yet you shall be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

X Isaiah

14:16 They that see you shall narrowly look upon you, and consider you, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that shook kingdoms:

X Isaiah

14:17 That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed its cities; that opened not the house of his prisoners?

X Isaiah

14:18 All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house.

X Isaiah

14:19 But you are cast out of your grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcass trodden under feet.

X Isaiah

14:20 You shall not be joined with them in burial, because you have destroyed your land, and slain your people: the seed of evil-doers shall never be renowned.

X Isaiah

14:21 Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they may not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities.

X Isaiah

14:22 For I will arise against them, says YHWH of hosts, and cut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son, and nephew, says YHWH.

X Isaiah

14:23 I will also make it a possession for the bittern, and pools of water: and I will sweep it with the besom of destruction, says YHWH of hosts.

X Isaiah

14:24 YHWH of hosts has sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand.

X Isaiah

14:25 That I will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon my mountains tread him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders.

X Isaiah

14:26 This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched over all the nations.

X Isaiah

14:27 For YHWH of hosts has purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?

X Isaiah

14:28 In the year that king Ahaz died was this burden.

X Isaiah

14:29 Rejoice not you, all Palestina, because the rod of him that smote you is broken: for out of the serpent's root shall come forth a basilisk, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent.

X Isaiah

14:30 And the first-born of the poor shall feed, and the needy shall lie down in safety: and I will kill your root with famine, and he shall slay your remnant.

X Isaiah

14:31 Howl, O gate; cry, O city; you, all Palestina, are dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke, and none shall be alone in his appointed times.

X Isaiah

14:32 What shall one then answer the messengers of the nation? That YHWH has founded Zion, and the poor of his people shall trust in it.

X Isaiah

15:1 The burden of Moab. Because in the night Ar of Moab is laid waste, and brought to silence; because in the night Kir of Moab is laid waste, and brought to silence;

X Isaiah

15:2 He is gone up to Bajith, and to Dibon, the high places, to weep: Moab shall howl over Nebo, and over Medeba: on all their heads shall be baldness, and every beard shorn.

X Isaiah

15:3 In their streets they shall gird themselves with sackcloth: on the tops of their houses, and in their streets, every one shall howl, weeping abundantly.

X Isaiah

15:4 And Heshbon shall cry, and Elealeh: their voice shall be heard even to Jahaz: therefore the armed soldiers of Moab shall cry out; his life shall be grievous to him.

X Isaiah

15:5 My heart shall cry out for Moab; his fugitives shall flee to Zoar, a heifer of three years old: for they shall go up the ascent of Luhith with weeping; for in the way of Horonaim they shall raise a cry of destruction.

X Isaiah

15:6 For the waters of Nimrim shall be desolate: for the herb is withered away, the grass fails, there is no green thing.

X Isaiah

15:7 Therefore the abundance they have gained, and that which they have laid up, shall they carry away to the brook of the willows.

X Isaiah

15:8 For the cry has gone round the borders of Moab, her howling to Eglaim, and her howling to Beer-elim.

X Isaiah

15:9 For the waters of Dimon shall be full of blood: for I will bring more upon Dimon, lions upon him that escapes of Moab, and upon the remnant of the land.

X Isaiah

16:1 Send you* the lamb to the ruler of the land from Sela to the wilderness, to the mount of the daughter of Zion.

X Isaiah

16:2 For it shall be, that, as a wandering bird cast out of the nest, so the daughters of Moab shall be at the fords of Arnon.

X Isaiah

16:3 Take counsel, execute judgment; make your shadow as the night in the midst of the noon-day; hide the outcasts; discover not him that wanders.

X Isaiah

16:4 Let my outcasts dwell with you, Moab; be you a covert to them from the face of the spoiler: for the extortioner is at an end, the spoiler ceases, the oppressors are consumed out of the land.

X Isaiah

16:5 And in mercy shall the throne be established: and he shall sit upon it in truth in the tabernacle of David, judging, and seeking judgment, and hasting righteousness.

X Isaiah

16:6 We have heard of the pride of Moab; he is very proud: even of his haughtiness, and his pride, and his wrath: but his lies shall not be so.

X Isaiah

16:7 Therefore shall Moab howl for Moab, every one shall howl: for the foundations of Kir-hareseth shall you* mourn; surely they are stricken.

X Isaiah

16:8 For the fields of Heshbon languish, and the vine of Sibmah: the masters of the heathen have broken down her principal plants, they have come even to Jazer, they wandered through the wilderness: her branches are extended, they have gone over the sea.

X Isaiah

16:9 Therefore I will bewail with the weeping of Jazer the vine of Sibmah: I will water you with my tears, O Heshbon, and Elealeh: for the shouting for your summer fruits and for your harvest is fallen.

X Isaiah

16:10 And gladness is taken away, and joy from the plentiful field; and in the vineyards there shall be no singing, neither shall there be shouting: the treaders shall tread out no wine in their presses; I have made their vintage-shouting to cease.

X Isaiah

16:11 Therefore my bowels shall sound like a harp for Moab, and my inward parts for Kir-haresh.

X Isaiah

16:12 And it shall come to pass, when it is seen that Moab is weary on the high place, that he shall come to his sanctuary to pray; but he shall not prevail.

X Isaiah

16:13 This is the word that YHWH has spoken concerning Moab since that time.

X Isaiah

16:14 But now YHWH has spoken, saying, Within three years, as the years of a hireling, and the glory of Moab shall be contemned, with all that great multitude; and the remnant shall be very small and feeble.

X Isaiah

17:1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.

X Isaiah

17:2 The cities of Aroer are forsaken: they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make them afraid.

X Isaiah

17:3 The fortress also shall cease from Ephraim, and the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Syria: they shall be as the glory of the children of Israel, says YHWH of hosts.

X Isaiah

17:4 And in that day it shall come to pass, that the glory of Jacob shall be diminished, and the fatness of his flesh shall become lean.

X Isaiah

17:5 And it shall be as when the harvest-man gathers the grain, and reaps the ears with his arm; and it shall be as he that gathers ears in the valley of Rephaim.

X Isaiah

17:6 Yet gleaning grapes shall be left in it, as the shaking of an olive-tree, two or three berries in the top of the uppermost bough, four or five in the outmost fruitful branches of it, says YHWH Elohim of Israel.

X Isaiah

17:7 At that day shall a man look to his Maker, and his eyes shall have respect to the Holy One of Israel.

X Isaiah

17:8 And he shall not look to the altars, the work of his hands, neither shall respect that which his fingers have made, either the groves, or the images.

X Isaiah

17:9 In that day shall his strong cities be as a forsaken bough, and an uppermost branch, which they left because of the children of Israel: and there shall be desolation.

X Isaiah

17:10 Because you have forgotten the Elohim of your salvation, and have not been mindful of the rock of your strength, therefore shall you plant pleasant plants, and shall set it with foreign slips:

X Isaiah

17:11 In the day shall you make your plant to grow, and in the morning shall you make your seed to flourish: but the harvest shall be a heap in the day of grief and of desperate sorrow.

X Isaiah

17:12 Woe to the multitude of many people, who make a noise like the noise of the seas; and to the rushing of nations, that make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters!

X Isaiah

17:13 The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters: but Elohim will rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind.

X Isaiah

17:14 And behold at the time of evening trouble; and before the morning he is not. This is the portion of them that ravage us, and the lot of them that rob us.

X Isaiah

18:1 Woe to the land shadowing with wings, which is beyond the rivers of Cush:

X Isaiah

18:2 That sends embassadors by the sea, even in vessels of bulrushes upon the waters, saying, Go, you* swift messengers to a nation scattered and peeled, to a people terrible from their beginning until now; a nation measured by line and trodden down, whose land the rivers have laid waste.

X Isaiah

18:3 All you* inhabitants of the world, and dwellers on the earth, see you*, when he lifts up an ensign on the mountains; and when he blows a trumpet, hear you*.

X Isaiah

18:4 For so YHWH said to me, I will take my rest, and I will consider in my dwelling-place like a clear heat upon herbs, and like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.

X Isaiah

18:5 For before the harvest, when the bud is perfect, and the sour grape is ripening in the flower, he shall both cut off the sprigs with pruning-hooks, and take away and cut down the branches.

X Isaiah

18:6 They shall be left together to the fowls of the mountains, and to the beasts of the earth: and the fowls shall summer upon them, and all the beasts of the earth shall winter upon them.

X Isaiah

18:7 In that time shall the present be brought to YHWH of hosts of a people scattered and peeled, and from a people terrible from their beginning until now; a nation measured by line and trodden under foot, whose land the rivers have spoiled, to the place of the name of YHWH of hosts, the mount Zion.

X Isaiah

19:1 The burden of Egypt. Behold, YHWH rideth upon a swift cloud, and will come into Egypt: and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it.

X Isaiah

19:2 And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother, and every one against his neighbor; city against city, and kingdom against kingdom.

X Isaiah

19:3 And the spirit of Egypt shall fail in the midst of her, and I will destroy her counsel: and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to them that have familiar spirits, and to the wizards.

X Isaiah

19:4 And the Egyptians will I give over into the hand of a cruel master; and a fierce king shall rule over them, says the Master, YHWH of hosts.

X Isaiah

19:5 And the waters shall fail from the sea, and the rivers shall be wasted and dried up.

X Isaiah

19:6 And they shall turn the rivers far away; and the brooks of defense shall be emptied and dried up: the reeds and flags shall wither.

X Isaiah

19:7 The paper-reeds by the brooks, by the mouth of the brooks, and every thing sown by the brooks, shall wither, be driven away, and be no more.

X Isaiah

19:8 The fishers also shall mourn, and all they that cast angle into the brooks shall lament, and they that spread nets upon the waters shall languish.

X Isaiah

19:9 Moreover they that work in fine flax, and they that weave net-works shall be confounded.

X Isaiah

19:10 And they shall be broken in the purposes thereof, all that make sluices and ponds for fish.

X Isaiah

19:11 Surely the princes of Zoan are fools, the counsel of the wise counselors of Pharaoh is become brutish: how say you* to Pharaoh, I am the son of the wise, the son of ancient kings?

X Isaiah

19:12 Where are they? where are your wise men? and let them tell you now, and let them know what YHWH of hosts has purposed upon Egypt.

X Isaiah

19:13 The princes of Zoan are become fools, the princes of Noph are deceived; they have also seduced Egypt, even they that are the support of its tribes.

X Isaiah

19:14 YHWH has mingled a perverse spirit in the midst of it: and they have caused Egypt to err in every work of it, as a drunken man staggereth in his vomit.

X Isaiah

19:15 Neither shall there be any work for Egypt, which the head or tail, branch or rush, may perform.

X Isaiah

19:16 In that day shall Egypt be like women: and it shall be afraid and fear because of the shaking of the hand of YHWH of hosts, which he shakes over it.

X Isaiah

19:17 And the land of Judah shall be a terror to Egypt, every one that makes mention of it shall be afraid in himself, because of the counsel of YHWH of hosts, which he has determined against it.

X Isaiah

19:18 In that day shall five cities in the land of Egypt speak the language of Canaan, and swear to YHWH of hosts; one shall be called, The city of destruction.

X Isaiah

19:19 In that day shall there be an altar to YHWH in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at its border to YHWH.

X Isaiah

19:20 And it shall be for a sign and for a witness to YHWH of hosts in the land of Egypt: for they shall cry to YHWH because of the oppressors, and he shall send them a saviour, and a great one, and he shall deliver them.

X Isaiah

19:21 And YHWH shall be known to Egypt, and the Egyptians shall know YHWH in that day, and shall do sacrifice and oblation; yes, they shall vow a vow to YHWH, and perform it.

X Isaiah

19:22 And YHWH will smite Egypt: he will smite and heal it: and they shall return even to YHWH, and he will be entreated by them, and will heal them.

X Isaiah

19:23 In that day shall there be a highway from Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians.

X Isaiah

19:24 In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land:

X Isaiah

19:25 Whom YHWH of hosts will bless, saying, Blessed be Egypt my people, and Assyria the work of my hands, and Israel my inheritance.

X Isaiah

20:1 In the year that Tartan came to Ashdod, (when Sargon the king of Assyria sent him,) and fought against Ashdod, and took it;

X Isaiah

20:2 At the same time spoke YHWH by Isaiah the son of Amoz, saying, Go, and loose the sackcloth from off your loins, and put off your shoe from your foot. And he did so, walking naked and barefoot.

X Isaiah

20:3 And YHWH said, As my servant Isaiah has walked naked and barefoot three years for a sign and wonder upon Egypt and upon Cush;

X Isaiah

20:4 So shall the king of Assyria lead away the Egyptians prisoners, and the Cushites captives, young and old, naked and barefoot, even with their hind-parts uncovered, to the shame of Egypt.

X Isaiah

20:5 And they shall be afraid and ashamed of Cush their expectation, and of Egypt their glory.

X Isaiah

20:6 And the inhabitant of this island shall say in that day, Behold, such is our expectation, where we flee for help to be delivered from the king of Assyria: and how shall we escape?

X Isaiah

21:1 The burden of the desert of the sea. As whirlwinds in the south pass through; so it comes from the desert, from a terrible land.

X Isaiah

21:2 A grievous vision is declared to me; the treacherous dealer deals treacherously, and the spoiler plundereth. Go up, O Elam: besiege, O Media; all her sighing have I made to cease.

X Isaiah

21:3 Therefore are my loins filled with pain: pangs have taken hold upon me, as the pangs of a woman that travails: I was bowed down at the hearing of it; I was dismayed at the seeing of it.

X Isaiah

21:4 My heart panted, fearfulness frightened me: the night of my pleasure has he turned into fear to me.

X Isaiah

21:5 Prepare the table, watch in the watch-tower, eat, drink: arise, you* princes, and anoint the shield.

X Isaiah

21:6 For thus has the Master said to me, Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he sees.

X Isaiah

21:7 And he saw a chariot with a couple of horsemen, a chariot of donkeys, and a chariot of camels; and he listened diligently with much heed:

X Isaiah

21:8 And he cried, a lion: My master, I stand continually upon the watch-tower in the day time, and I am set in my ward whole nights.

X Isaiah

21:9 And behold, here comes a chariot of men, with a couple of horsemen. And he answered and said, Babylon is fallen, is fallen; and all the graven images of her elohims he has broken to the ground.

X Isaiah

21:10 O my threshing, and the grain of my floor; that which I have heard from YHWH of hosts, the Elohim of Israel, have I declared to you*.

X Isaiah

21:11 The burden of Dumah. He calls to me out of Seir, Watchman, what of the night? Watchman, what of the night?

X Isaiah

21:12 The watchman said, The morning comes, and also the night: if you* will inquire, inquire you*: return, come.

X Isaiah

21:13 The burden upon Arabia. In the forest in Arabia shall you* lodge, O you* traveling companies of Dedanim.

X Isaiah

21:14 The inhabitants of the land of Tema brought water to him that was thirsty, they met with their bread him that fled.

X Isaiah

21:15 For they fled from the swords, from the drawn sword, and from the bent bow, and from the grievousness of war.

X Isaiah

21:16 For thus has the Master said to me, Within a year, according to the years of a hireling, and all the glory of Kedar shall fail:

X Isaiah

21:17 And the residue of the number of archers, the mighty men of the children of Kedar, shall be diminished: for YHWH Elohim of Israel has spoken it.

X Isaiah

22:1 The burden of the valley of vision. What ails you now, that you have wholly gone up to the house-tops?

X Isaiah

22:2 You that are full of stirs, a tumultuous city, a joyous city: your slain men are not slain with the sword, nor dead in battle.

X Isaiah

22:3 All your rulers have fled together, they are bound by the archers: all that are found in you are bound together, who have fled from far.

X Isaiah

22:4 Therefore said I, Look away from me; I will weep bitterly, labor not to comfort me, because of the devastation of the daughter of my people.

X Isaiah

22:5 For it is a day of trouble, and of treading down, and of perplexity by the Sovereign YHWH of hosts in the valley of vision, breaking down the walls, and of crying to the mountains.

X Isaiah

22:6 And Elam bore the quiver with chariots of men and horsemen, and Kir uncovered the shield.

X Isaiah

22:7 And it shall come to pass, that your choicest valleys shall be full of chariots, and the horsemen shall set themselves in array at the gate.

X Isaiah

22:8 And he uncovered the coverings of Judah, and you did look in that day to the armor of the house of the forest.

X Isaiah

22:9 You* have seen also the breaches of the city of David, that they are many: and you* collected the waters of the lower pool.

X Isaiah

22:10 And you* have numbered the houses of Jerusalem, and the houses have you* broken down to fortify the wall.

X Isaiah

22:11 You* made also a ditch between the two walls for the water of the old pool: but you* have not looked to its maker, neither had respect to him that fashioned it long ago.

X Isaiah

22:12 And in that day did the Sovereign YHWH of hosts call to weeping, and to mourning, and to baldness, and to girding with sackcloth:

X Isaiah

22:13 And behold joy and gladness, slaying oxen, and killing sheep, eating flesh, and drinking wine: let us eat and drink; for to-morrow we shall die.

X Isaiah

22:14 And it was revealed in my ears by YHWH of hosts, Surely this iniquity shall not be purged from you* till you* die, says the Sovereign YHWH of hosts.

X Isaiah

22:15 Thus says the Sovereign YHWH of hosts, Go, repair to this treasurer, even to Shebna, who is over the house, and say,

X Isaiah

22:16 What have you here? and whom have you here, that you have hewed you out a sepulcher here, as he that heweth him out a sepulcher on high, and that graveth a habitation for himself in a rock?

X Isaiah

22:17 Behold, YHWH will carry you away with a mighty captivity, and will surely cover you.

X Isaiah

22:18 With violence he will surely turn and toss you like a ball into a wide country: there shall you die, and there the chariots of your glory shall be the shame of your master's house.

X Isaiah

22:19 And I will drive you from your station, and from your state shall he pull you down.

X Isaiah

22:20 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will call my servant Eliakim the son of Hilkiah:

X Isaiah

22:21 And I will clothe him with your robe, and strengthen him with your girdle, and I will commit your government into his hand: and he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Judah.

X Isaiah

22:22 And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.

X Isaiah

22:23 And I will fasten him as a nail in a sure place; and he shall be for a glorious throne to his father's house.

X Isaiah

22:24 And they shall hang upon him all the glory of his father's house, the offspring and the issue, all vessels of small quantity, from the vessels of cups, even to all the vessels of flagons.

X Isaiah

22:25 In that day, says YHWH of hosts, shall the nail that is fastened in the sure place be removed, and be cut down, and fall; and the burden that was upon it shall be cut off: for YHWH has spoken it.

X Isaiah

23:1 The burden of Tyre. Howl, you* ships of Tarshish; for it is laid waste, so that there is no house, no entering in: from the land of Chittim it is revealed to them.

X Isaiah

23:2 Be still, you* inhabitants of the island; you whom the merchants of Zidon, that pass over the sea, have replenished.

X Isaiah

23:3 And by great waters the seed of Sihor, the harvest of the river, is her revenue; and she is a mart of nations.

X Isaiah

23:4 Be you ashamed, O Zidon: for the sea has spoken, even the strength of the sea, saying, I travail not, nor bring forth children, neither do I nourish young men, nor bring up virgins.

X Isaiah

23:5 As at the report concerning Egypt, so shall they be sorely pained at the report of Tyre.

X Isaiah

23:6 Pass you* over to Tarshish; howl, you* inhabitants of the island.

X Isaiah

23:7 Is this your* joyous city, whose antiquity is of ancient days? her own feet shall carry her far off to sojourn.

X Isaiah

23:8 Who has taken this counsel against Tyre, the crowning city, whose merchants are princes, whose traders are the honorable of the earth?

X Isaiah

23:9 YHWH of hosts has purposed it, to stain the pride of all glory, and to bring into contempt all the honorable of the earth.

X Isaiah

23:10 Pass through your land as a river, O daughter of Tarshish: there is no more strength.

X Isaiah

23:11 He stretched his hand over the sea, he shook the kingdoms: YHWH has given a commandment against the merchant city, to destroy its strong holds.

X Isaiah

23:12 And he said, You shall no more rejoice, O you oppressed virgin, daughter of Zidon: arise, pass over to Chittim; there also shall you have no rest.

X Isaiah

23:13 Behold the land of the Chaldeans; this people was not, till the Assyrian founded it for them that dwell in the wilderness: they set up its towers, they raised up its palaces; and he brought it to ruin.

X Isaiah

23:14 Howl, you* ships of Tarshish: for your* strength is laid waste.

X Isaiah

23:15 And it shall come to pass in that day, that Tyre shall be forgotten seventy years, according to the days of one king: after the end of seventy years shall Tyre sing as a harlot.

X Isaiah

23:16 Take a harp, go about the city, you harlot that have been forgotten; make sweet melody, sing many songs, that you may be remembered.

X Isaiah

23:17 And it shall come to pass after the end of seventy years, that YHWH will visit to Tyre, and she shall turn to her hire, and shall commit fornication with all the kingdoms of the world upon the face of the earth.

X Isaiah

23:18 And her merchandise and her hire shall be holiness to YHWH: it shall not be treasured nor laid up; for her merchandise shall be for them that dwell before YHWH, for sufficient food, and for durable clothing.

X Isaiah

24:1 Behold, YHWH makes the earth empty, and makes it waste, and turns it upside down, and scatters abroad its inhabitants.

X Isaiah

24:2 And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of interest, so with the giver of interest to him.

X Isaiah

24:3 The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for YHWH has spoken this word.

X Isaiah

24:4 The earth mourns and fades away, the world languishes and fades away, the haughty people of the earth do languish.

X Isaiah

24:5 The earth also is defiled under its inhabitants; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.

X Isaiah

24:6 Therefore has the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell in it are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.

X Isaiah

24:7 The new wine mourns, the vine languishes, all the merry-hearted do sigh.

X Isaiah

24:8 The mirth of tabrets ceases, the noise of them that rejoice ends, the joy of the harp ceases.

X Isaiah

24:9 They shall not drink wine with a song; strong drink shall be bitter to them that drink it.

X Isaiah

24:10 The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut up, that no man may enter.

X Isaiah

24:11 There is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone.

X Isaiah

24:12 In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction.

X Isaiah

24:13 When thus it shall be in the midst of the land among the people, there shall be as the shaking of an olive-tree, and as the gleaning grapes when the vintage is done.

X Isaiah

24:14 They shall lift up their voice, they shall sing for the majesty of YHWH, they shall cry aloud from the sea.

X Isaiah

24:15 Therefore glorify you* YHWH in the fires, even the name of YHWH Elohim of Israel in the islands of the sea.

X Isaiah

24:16 From the uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, even glory to the righteous. But I said, My leanness, my leanness, woe to me! the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously; yes, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously.

X Isaiah

24:17 Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon you, O inhabitant of the earth.

X Isaiah

24:18 And it shall come to pass, that he who flees from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that comes up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake.

X Isaiah

24:19 The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is entirely dissolved, the earth is exceedingly moved.

X Isaiah

24:20 The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression of it shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.

X Isaiah

24:21 And it shall come to pass in that day, that YHWH shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth.

X Isaiah

24:22 And they shall be gathered, as prisoners are gathered in the pit, and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days shall they be visited to.

X Isaiah

24:23 Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when YHWH of hosts shall reign on mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.

X Isaiah

25:1 O YHWH, you are my Elohim; I will exalt you, I will praise your name; for you have done wonderful things; your counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.

X Isaiah

25:2 For you have made of a city a heap; of a fortified city a ruin: a palace of strangers to be no city; it shall never be built.

X Isaiah

25:3 Therefore shall the strong people glorify you, the city of the terrible nations shall fear you.

X Isaiah

25:4 For you have been a defense to the poor, a defense to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shade from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.

X Isaiah

25:5 You will bring down the noise of strangers, as the heat in a dry place; even the heat with the shade of a cloud: the branch of the terrible ones shall be brought low.

X Isaiah

25:6 And on this mountain will YHWH of hosts make to all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.

X Isaiah

25:7 And he will destroy on this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the vail that is spread over all nations.

X Isaiah

25:8 He will swallow up death in victory; and the Sovereign YHWH will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people will he remove from all the earth: for YHWH has spoken it.

X Isaiah

25:9 And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our Elohim; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is YHWH, we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.

X Isaiah

25:10 For on this mountain shall the hand of YHWH rest, and Moab shall be trodden down under him, even as straw is trodden down for the dunghill.

X Isaiah

25:11 And he will spread forth his hands in the midst of them, as he that swims spreads forth his hands to swim: and he will bring down their pride together with the spoils of their hands.

X Isaiah

25:12 And the fortress of the high fort of your walls will he bring down, lay low, and bring to the ground, even to the dust.

X Isaiah

26:1 In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah; We have a strong city; salvation will Elohim appoint for walls and bulwarks.

X Isaiah

26:2 Open you* the gates, that the righteous nation which keeps the truth may enter in.

X Isaiah

26:3 You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you: because he trusts in you.

X Isaiah

26:4 Trust you* in YHWH forever: for in the Sovereign YHWH is everlasting strength:

X Isaiah

26:5 For he brings down them that dwell on high; the lofty city, he lays it low; he lays it low, even to the ground; he brings it even to the dust.

X Isaiah

26:6 The foot shall tread it down, even the feet of the poor, and the steps of the needy.

X Isaiah

26:7 The way of the just is uprightness: you, most upright, do weigh the path of the just.

X Isaiah

26:8 Yes, in the way of your judgments, O YHWH, have we waited for you; the desire of our soul is to your name, and to the remembrance of you.

X Isaiah

26:9 With my soul have I desired you in the night; yes, with my spirit within me will I seek you early: for when your judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.

X Isaiah

26:10 Let favor be shown to the wicked, yet he will not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness he will deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of YHWH.

X Isaiah

26:11 YHWH, when your hand is lifted up, they will not see: but they shall see, and be ashamed for their envy at the people; yes, the fire of your enemies shall devour them.

X Isaiah

26:12 YHWH, you will ordain peace for us: for you also have worked all our works in us.

X Isaiah

26:13 O YHWH our Elohim, other masters beside you have had dominion over us; but by you only will we make mention of your name.

X Isaiah

26:14 They are dead, they shall not live; they are deceased, they shall not rise: therefore have you visited to and destroyed them, and made all their memory to perish.

X Isaiah

26:15 You have increased the nation, O YHWH, you have increased the nation; you are glorified: you had removed it far to all the ends of the earth.

X Isaiah

26:16 YHWH, in trouble have they visited to you, they poured out a prayer when your chastening was upon them.

X Isaiah

26:17 As a woman with child, that draws near the time of her delivery, is in pain, and cries out in her pangs; so have we been in your sight, O YHWH.

X Isaiah

26:18 We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not worked any deliverance on the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen.

X Isaiah

26:19 Your dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, you* that dwell in dust: for your dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.

X Isaiah

26:20 Come, my people, enter you into your chambers, and shut your doors about you; hide yourself as it were for a little moment until the indignation shall be overpast.

X Isaiah

26:21 For behold, YHWH comes out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

X Isaiah

27:1 In that day YHWH with his keen and great and strong sword will punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he will slay the dragon that is in the sea.

X Isaiah

27:2 In that day sing you* to her, A vineyard of red wine.

X Isaiah

27:3 I YHWH do keep it; I will water it every moment: lest any hurt it, I will keep it night and day.

X Isaiah

27:4 Fury is not in me: who would set the briers and thorns against me in battle? I would go through them, I would burn them together.

X Isaiah

27:5 Or let him take hold of my strength, that he may make peace with me, and he shall make peace with me.

X Isaiah

27:6 He shall cause them that descend from Jacob to take root: Israel shall blossom and bud, and fill the face of the world with fruit.

X Isaiah

27:7 Has he smitten him, as he smote those that smote him? or is he slain according to the slaughter of them that are slain by him?

X Isaiah

27:8 In measure, when it shoots forth, you will debate with it: he stays his rough wind in the day of the east wind.

X Isaiah

27:9 By this therefore shall the iniquity of Jacob be purged; and this is all the fruit to take away his sin; when he makes all the stones of the altar as chalk-stones that are beaten asunder, the groves and images shall not stand up.

X Isaiah

27:10 Yet the fortified city shall be desolate, and the habitation forsaken, and left like a wilderness: there shall the calf feed, and there shall he lie down, and consume its branches.

X Isaiah

27:11 When its boughs are withered, they shall be broken off: the women come and set them on fire: for it is a people of no understanding: therefore he that made them will not have mercy on them, and he that formed them will show them no favor.

X Isaiah

27:12 And it shall come to pass in that day, that YHWH shall gather from the channel of the river to the stream of Egypt, and you* shall be gathered one by one, O you* children of Israel.

X Isaiah

27:13 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the great trumpet shall be blown, and they shall come who were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship YHWH on the holy mount at Jerusalem.

X Isaiah

28:1 Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim, whose glorious beauty is a fading flower; who are on the head of the rich valleys of them that are overcome with wine!

X Isaiah

28:2 Behold, the Master has a mighty and strong one, which as a tempest of hail and a destroying storm, as a flood of mighty waters overflowing, shall cast down to the earth with the hand.

X Isaiah

28:3 The crown of pride, the drunkards of Ephraim shall be trodden under feet.

X Isaiah

28:4 And the glorious beauty, which is on the head of the rich valley, shall be a fading flower, and as the early fruit before the summer; which, when he that looks upon it, sees while it is yet in his hand he eats it up.

X Isaiah

28:5 In that day will YHWH of hosts be for a crown of glory, and for a diadem of beauty, to the residue of his people,

X Isaiah

28:6 And for a spirit of judgment to him that sits in judgment, and for strength to them that turn the battle to the gate.

X Isaiah

28:7 But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are overwhelmed with wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment.

X Isaiah

28:8 For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, so that there is no place clean.

X Isaiah

28:9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.

X Isaiah

28:10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

X Isaiah

28:11 For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people.

X Isaiah

28:12 To whom he said, This is the rest with which you* may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.

X Isaiah

28:13 But the word of YHWH was to them, precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

X Isaiah

28:14 Therefore hear the word of YHWH, you* scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem.

X Isaiah

28:15 Because you* have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we in agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not reach us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:

X Isaiah

28:16 Therefore thus says the Sovereign YHWH, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believes shall not make hurry.

X Isaiah

28:17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding-place.

X Isaiah

28:18 And your* covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your* agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then you* shall be trodden down by it.

X Isaiah

28:19 From the time that it goes forth it shall take you*: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report.

X Isaiah

28:20 For the bed is shorter than that a man can stretch himself on it: and the covering narrower than that he can wrap himself in it.

X Isaiah

28:21 For YHWH will rise as on mount Perazim, he will be angry as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act.

X Isaiah

28:22 Now therefore be you* not mockers, lest your* bands be made strong: for I have heard from the Sovereign YHWH of hosts a consumption, even determined upon the whole earth.

X Isaiah

28:23 Give you* ear, and hear my voice; listen, and hear my speech.

X Isaiah

28:24 Does the plowman plow all day to sow? does he open and break the clods of his ground?

X Isaiah

28:25 When he has made even the face of it, does he not cast abroad the vetches, and scatter the cummin, and cast in the principal wheat, and the appointed barley, and the rye in their place?

X Isaiah

28:26 For his Elohim does instruct him to discretion, and does teach him.

X Isaiah

28:27 For the vetches are not threshed with a threshing instrument, neither is a cart-wheel turned about upon the cummin; but the vetches are beaten out with a staff, and the cummin with a rod.

X Isaiah

28:28 Bread-grain is bruised; because he will not always be threshing it, nor break it with the wheel of his cart, nor bruise it with his horsemen.

X Isaiah

28:29 This also comes forth from YHWH of hosts, who is wonderful in counsel, and excellent in operation.

X Isaiah

29:1 Woe to Ariel, to Ariel, the city where David dwelt! add you* year to year; let them kill sacrifices.

X Isaiah

29:2 Yet I will distress Ariel, and there shall be heaviness and sorrow; and it shall be to me as Ariel.

X Isaiah

29:3 And I will encamp against you round about, and will lay siege against you with a mount, and I will raise forts against you.

X Isaiah

29:4 And you shall be brought down, and shall speak out of the ground, and your speech shall be low out of the dust, and your voice shall be, as of one that has a familiar spirit, out of the ground, and your speech shall whisper out of the dust.

X Isaiah

29:5 Moreover, the multitude of your strangers shall be like small dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones shall be as chaff that passes away: yes, it shall be at an instant suddenly.

X Isaiah

29:6 You shall be visited to by YHWH of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.

X Isaiah

29:7 And the multitude of all the nations that fight against Ariel, even all that fight against her and her munition, and that distress her, shall be as a dream of a night-vision.

X Isaiah

29:8 It shall even be as when a hungry man dreams, and behold, he eats; but he awakes, and his soul is empty: or as when a thirsty man dreams, and behold, he drinks; but he awakes, and behold, he is faint, and his soul has appetite: so shall the multitude of all the nations be, that fight against mount Zion.

X Isaiah

29:9 Stay yourselves*, and wonder; cry you* out, and cry: they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink.

X Isaiah

29:10 For YHWH has poured out upon you* the spirit of deep sleep, and has closed your* eyes: the prophets and your* rulers, the seers has he covered.

X Isaiah

29:11 And the vision of all is become to you* as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray you: and he says, I cannot; for it is sealed:

X Isaiah

29:12 And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray you: and he says, I am not learned.

X Isaiah

29:13 Therefore the Sovereign said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honor me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear towards me is taught by the precept of men:

X Isaiah

29:14 Therefore behold, I will proceed to do a marvelous work among this people, even an astonishing work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.

X Isaiah

29:15 Woe to them that seek deep to hide their counsel from YHWH, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who sees us? and who knows us?

X Isaiah

29:16 Surely your* turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter's clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?

X Isaiah

29:17 Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest?

X Isaiah

29:18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.

X Isaiah

29:19 The meek also shall increase their joy in YHWH, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.

X Isaiah

29:20 For the terrible one is brought to naught, and the scoffer is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off:

X Isaiah

29:21 That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproves in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of naught.

X Isaiah

29:22 Therefore thus says YHWH, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob, Jacob shall not now be ashamed, neither shall his face now become pale.

X Isaiah

29:23 But when he sees his children, the work of my hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name, and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the Elohim of Israel.

X Isaiah

29:24 They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.

X Isaiah

30:1 Woe to the rebellious children, says YHWH, that take counsel, but not from me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:

X Isaiah

30:2 That walk to go down into Egypt, and have not asked at my mouth; to strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh, and to trust in the shade of Egypt!

X Isaiah

30:3 Therefore shall the strength of Pharaoh be your* shame, and the trust in the shade of Egypt your* confusion.

X Isaiah

30:4 For his princes were at Zoan, and his embassadors came to Hanes.

X Isaiah

30:5 They were all ashamed of a people that could not profit them, nor be a help nor profit, but a shame, and also a reproach.

X Isaiah

30:6 The burden of the beasts of the south: into the land of trouble and anguish, from what place come the young and the old lion, the viper and flying serpent, they will carry their riches upon the shoulders of young donkeys, and their treasures upon the bunches of camels, to a people that shall not profit them.

X Isaiah

30:7 For the Egyptian shall help in vain, and to no purpose: therefore have I cried concerning this, Their strength is to sit still.

X Isaiah

30:8 Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come forever and ever:

X Isaiah

30:9 That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of YHWH:

X Isaiah

30:10 Who say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not to us right things, speak to us smooth things, prophesy deceits:

X Isaiah

30:11 Withdraw from the way, turn aside from the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.

X Isaiah

30:12 Therefore thus says the Holy One of Israel, Because you* despise this word, and trust in oppression and perverseness, and lean upon it:

X Isaiah

30:13 Therefore this iniquity shall be to you* as a breach ready to fall, swelling out in a high wall, whose breaking comes suddenly at an instant.

X Isaiah

30:14 And he shall break it as the breaking of the potter's vessel that is broken in pieces; he shall not spare: so that there shall not be found in the bursting of it a piece to take fire from the hearth, or to take water out of the pit.

X Isaiah

30:15 For thus says the Sovereign YHWH, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall you* be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your* strength: and you* would not.

X Isaiah

30:16 But you* said, No; for we will flee upon horses; therefore shall you* flee: and, We will ride upon the swift; therefore shall they that pursue you* be swift.

X Isaiah

30:17 One thousand shall flee at the rebuke of one; at the rebuke of five shall you* flee: till you* be left as a beacon upon the top of a mountain, and as an ensign on a hill.

X Isaiah

30:18 And therefore will YHWH wait, that he may be gracious to you*, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you*: for YHWH is a Elohim of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him.

X Isaiah

30:19 For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem: you shall weep no more: he will be very gracious to you at the voice of your cry; when he shall hear it, he will answer you.

X Isaiah

30:20 And though the Master shall give you* the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction, yet shall not your teachers be removed into a corner any more, but your eyes shall see your teachers:

X Isaiah

30:21 And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way, walk you* in it, when you* turn to the right hand, and when you* turn to the left.

X Isaiah

30:22 You* shall defile also the covering of your graven images of silver, and the ornament of your molten images of gold: you shall cast them away as a polluted cloth; you shall say to it, Be gone from me.

X Isaiah

30:23 Then shall he give the rain of your seed, with which you shall sow the ground; and bread of the increase of the earth, and it shall be fat and plenteous: in that day shall your cattle feed in large pastures.

X Isaiah

30:24 The oxen likewise and the young donkeys that plow the ground shall eat clean fodder, which has been winnowed with the shovel and with the fan.

X Isaiah

30:25 And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of waters in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall.

X Isaiah

30:26 Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be seven-fold, as the light of seven days, in the day that YHWH binds up the breach of his people, and heals the stroke of their wound.

X Isaiah

30:27 Behold, the name of YHWH comes from far, burning with his anger, and the burden of it is heavy: his lips are full of indignation, and his tongue as a devouring fire:

X Isaiah

30:28 And his breath, as an overflowing stream, shall reach to the midst of the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of vanity: and there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people, causing them to err.

X Isaiah

30:29 You* shall have a song, as in the night, when a holy solemnity is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goes with a pipe to come upon the mountain of YHWH, to the mighty One of Israel.

X Isaiah

30:30 And YHWH shall cause his glorious voice to be heard, and shall show the lighting down of his arm, with the indignation of his anger, and with the flame of a devouring fire, with scattering, and tempest, and hailstones.

X Isaiah

30:31 For through the voice of YHWH shall the Assyrian be beaten down, who smote with a rod.

X Isaiah

30:32 And in every place where the grounded staff shall pass, which YHWH shall lay upon him, it shall be with tabrets and harps: and in battles of shaking will he fight with it.

X Isaiah

30:33 For Tophet is ordained of old; yes, for the king it is prepared; he has made it deep and large: the pile of it is fire and much wood; the breath of YHWH, like a stream of brimstone, does kindle it.

X Isaiah

31:1 Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and rely on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not to the Holy One of Israel, neither seek YHWH!

X Isaiah

31:2 Yet he also is wise, and will bring evil, and will not call back his words: but will arise against the house of the evil-doers, and against the help of them that work iniquity.

X Isaiah

31:3 Now the Egyptians are men, and not Elohim; and their horses flesh, and not spirit. When YHWH shall stretch out his hand, both he that helpeth shall fall, and he that is helped shall fall down, and they all shall fail together.

X Isaiah

31:4 For thus has YHWH spoken to me, As the lion and the young lion roaring on his prey, when a multitude of shepherds is called forth against him, he will not be afraid of their voice, nor abase himself for the noise of them: so will YHWH of hosts come down to fight for mount Zion, and for the hill thereof.

X Isaiah

31:5 As birds flying, so will YHWH of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver it; and passing over he will preserve it.

X Isaiah

31:6 Turn you* to him from whom the children of Israel have deeply revolted.

X Isaiah

31:7 For in that day every man shall cast away his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which your* own hands have made to you* for a sin.

X Isaiah

31:8 Then shall the Assyrian fall with the sword, not of a mighty man; and the sword, not of a mean man, shall devour him: but he shall flee from the sword, and his young men shall be discomfited.

X Isaiah

31:9 And he shall pass over to his strong hold for fear, and his princes shall be afraid of the ensign, says YHWH, whose fire is in Zion, and his furnace in Jerusalem.

X Isaiah

32:1 Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment.

X Isaiah

32:2 And a man shall be as a hiding-place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as streams of water in a dry place, as the shade of a great rock in a weary land.

X Isaiah

32:3 And the eyes of them that see shall not be dim, and the ears of them that hear shall listen.

X Isaiah

32:4 The heart also of the rash shall understand knowledge, and the tongue of the stammerers shall be ready to speak plainly.

X Isaiah

32:5 The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful.

X Isaiah

32:6 For the vile person will speak villainy, and his heart will work iniquity, to practice hypocrisy, and to utter error against YHWH, to make empty the soul of the hungry; and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.

X Isaiah

32:7 The instruments also of the churl are evil: he devises wicked devices to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy speaks right.

X Isaiah

32:8 But the liberal devises liberal things; and by liberal things shall he stand.

X Isaiah

32:9 Rise up, you* women that are at ease; hear my voice, you* careless daughters; give ear to my speech.

X Isaiah

32:10 Many days and years shall you* be troubled, you* careless women: for the vintage shall fail, the gathering shall not come.

X Isaiah

32:11 Tremble, you* women that are at ease; be troubled, you* careless ones: strip you*, and make you* bare, and gird sackcloth upon your* loins.

X Isaiah

32:12 They shall lament for the breasts, for the pleasant fields, for the fruitful vine.

X Isaiah

32:13 Upon the land of my people shall come up thorns and briers; also, upon all the houses of joy in the joyous city:

X Isaiah

32:14 Because the palaces shall be forsaken; the multitude of the city shall be left; the forts and towers shall be for dens forever, a joy of wild donkeys, a pasture of flocks;

X Isaiah

32:15 Until the spirit shall be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness shall be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be counted for a forest.

X Isaiah

32:16 Then judgment shall dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness remain in the fruitful field.

X Isaiah

32:17 And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever.

X Isaiah

32:18 And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting-places;

X Isaiah

32:19 When it shall hail, coming down on the forest; and the city shall be low in a low place.

X Isaiah

32:20 Blessed are you* that sow beside all waters, that send forth toward that place the feet of the ox and the donkey.

X Isaiah

33:1 Woe to you that layest waste, and you were not laid waste; and dealest treacherously, and they dealt not treacherously with you! when you shall cease to lay waste, you shall be wasted; and when you shall make an end to deal treacherously, they shall deal treacherously with you.

X Isaiah

33:2 O YHWH, be gracious to us; we have waited for you: be you their arm every morning, our salvation also in the time of trouble.

X Isaiah

33:3 At the noise of the tumult the people fled; at the lifting up of yourself the nations were scattered.

X Isaiah

33:4 And your* spoil shall be gathered like the gathering of the caterpillar: as the running to and fro of locusts shall he run upon them.

X Isaiah

33:5 YHWH is exalted; for he dwells on high: he has filled Zion with judgment and righteousness.

X Isaiah

33:6 And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of your times, and strength of salvation: the fear of YHWH is his treasure.

X Isaiah

33:7 Behold, their valiant ones shall cry without: the embassadors of peace shall weep bitterly.

X Isaiah

33:8 The highways lie waste, the way-faring man ceases: he has broken the covenant, he has despised the cities, he regards no man.

X Isaiah

33:9 The earth mourns and languishes: Lebanon is ashamed and cut down: Sharon is like a wilderness; and Bashan and Carmel shake off their fruits.

X Isaiah

33:10 Now will I rise, says YHWH; now will I be exalted; now will I lift up myself.

X Isaiah

33:11 You* shall conceive chaff, you* shall bring forth stubble: your* breath, as fire, shall devour you*.

X Isaiah

33:12 And the people shall be as the burnings of lime: as thorns cut up shall they be burned in the fire.

X Isaiah

33:13 You* that are far off, hear what I have done; and you* that are near, acknowledge my might.

X Isaiah

33:14 The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness has surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?

X Isaiah

33:15 He that walks righteously, and speaks uprightly; he that despises the gain of oppressions, that shakes his hands from holding of bribes, that stops his ears from hearing of blood, and shuts his eyes from seeing evil;

X Isaiah

33:16 He shall dwell on high: his place of defense shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.

X Isaiah

33:17 Your eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off.

X Isaiah

33:18 Your heart shall meditate terror. Where is the scribe? where is the receiver? where is he that counted the towers?

X Isaiah

33:19 You shall not see a fierce people, a people of deeper speech than you can perceive; of a stammering tongue, that you can not understand.

X Isaiah

33:20 Look upon Zion, the city of our solemnities: your eyes shall see Jerusalem a quiet habitation, a tabernacle that shall not be taken down; not one of its stakes shall ever be removed, neither shall any of its cords be broken.

X Isaiah

33:21 But there the glorious YHWH will be to us a place of broad rivers and streams; in which shall go no galley with oars, neither shall gallant ship pass through it.

X Isaiah

33:22 For YHWH is our judge, YHWH is our lawgiver, YHWH is our king; he will save us.

X Isaiah

33:23 Your tacklings are loosed; they could not well strengthen their mast, they could not spread the sail: then is the prey of a great spoil divided; the lame take the prey.

X Isaiah

33:24 And the inhabitants shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity.

X Isaiah

34:1 Come near, you* nations, to hear; and listen, you* people: let the earth hear, and all that is in it; the world, and all things that spring from it.

X Isaiah

34:2 For the indignation of YHWH is upon all nations, and his fury upon all their armies: he has utterly destroyed them, he has delivered them to the slaughter.

X Isaiah

34:3 Their slain also shall be cast out, and their ill smell shall come up from their carcases, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood.

X Isaiah

34:4 And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their hosts shall fall down, as the leaf falls from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig-tree.

X Isaiah

34:5 For my sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Edom, and upon the people of my curse, to judgment.

X Isaiah

34:6 The sword of YHWH is filled with blood, it is made fat with fatness, and with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams: for YHWH has a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Edom.

X Isaiah

34:7 And the unicorns shall come down with them, and the bullocks with the bulls; and their land shall be drenched with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness.

X Isaiah

34:8 For it is the day of YHWH'S vengeance, and the year of recompenses for the controversy of Zion.

X Isaiah

34:9 And its streams shall be turned into pitch, and its dust into brimstone, and its land shall become burning pitch.

X Isaiah

34:10 It shall not be quenched night nor day; the smoke of it shall ascend forever: from generation to generation it shall lie waste; none shall pass through it forever and ever.

X Isaiah

34:11 But the cormorant and the bittern shall possess it; the owl also and the raven shall dwell in it: and he shall stretch out upon it the line of confusion, and the stones of emptiness.

X Isaiah

34:12 They shall call her nobles to the kingdom, but none shall be there, and all her princes shall be nothing.

X Isaiah

34:13 And thorns shall come up in her palaces, nettles and brambles in her fortresses, and it shall be a habitation of dragons, and a court for owls.

X Isaiah

34:14 The wild beasts of the desert shall also meet with the wild beasts of the island, and the satyr shall cry to his fellow; the screech-owl also shall rest there, and find for herself a place of rest.

X Isaiah

34:15 There shall the great owl make her nest, and lay, and hatch, and gather under her shadow: there shall the vultures also be gathered, every one with her mate.

X Isaiah

34:16 Seek you* out of the book of YHWH, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it has commanded, and his spirit it has gathered them.

X Isaiah

34:17 And he has cast the lot for them, and his hand has divided it to them by line: they shall possess it forever, from generation to generation shall they dwell therein.

X Isaiah

35:1 The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose.

X Isaiah

35:2 It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice, even with joy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shall be given to it, the excellence of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the glory of YHWH, and the excellence of our Elohim.

X Isaiah

35:3 Strengthen you* the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees.

X Isaiah

35:4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your* Elohim will come with vengeance, even Elohim with a recompense; he will come and save you*.

X Isaiah

35:5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.

X Isaiah

35:6 Then shall the lame man leap as a hart, and the tongue of the dumb shall sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.

X Isaiah

35:7 And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes.

X Isaiah

35:8 And a highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called, The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the way-faring men, though fools, shall not err therein.

X Isaiah

35:9 No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:

X Isaiah

35:10 And the ransomed of YHWH shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

X Isaiah

36:1 Now it came to pass in the fourteenth year of king Hezekiah, that Sennacherib king of Assyria came up against all the fortified cities of Judah, and took them.

X Isaiah

36:2 And the king of Assyria sent Rabshakeh from Lachish to Jerusalem against king Hezekiah with a great army. And he stood by the conduit of the upper pool in the highway of the fuller's field.

X Isaiah

36:3 Then came forth to him Eliakim, Hilkiah's son, who was over the house, and Shebna the scribe, and Joah, Asaph's son, the recorder.

X Isaiah

36:4 And Rabshakeh said to them, Say you* now to Hezekiah, Thus says the great king, the king of Assyria, What confidence is this in which you trustest?

X Isaiah

36:5 I say, say you (but they are but vain words) I have counsel and strength for war: now on whom do you trust, that you rebellest against me?

X Isaiah

36:6 Lo, you trustest in the staff of this broken reed, on Egypt; on which if a man lean, it will enter his hand, and pierce it: so is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all that trust in him.

X Isaiah

36:7 But if you shall say to me, We trust in YHWH our Elohim: is it not he, whose high places and whose altars Hezekiah has taken away, and said to Judah and to Jerusalem, You* shall worship before this altar?

X Isaiah

36:8 Now therefore give pledges, I pray you, to my master the king of Assyria, and I will give you two thousand horses, if you can on your part set riders upon them.

X Isaiah

36:9 How then will you turn away the face of one captain of the least of my master's servants, and put your trust on Egypt for chariots and for horsemen?

X Isaiah

36:10 And am I now come up without YHWH against this land to destroy it? YHWH said to me, Go up against this land, and destroy it.

X Isaiah

36:11 Then said Eliakim and Shebna and Joah to Rabshakeh, Speak, I pray you, to your servants in the Syrian language; for we understand it: and speak not to us in the Jew's language, in the ears of the people that are on the wall.

X Isaiah

36:12 But Rabshakeh said, Has my master sent me to your master and to you to speak these words? has he not sent me to the men that sit upon the wall, that they may devour their vilest excretions with you*?

X Isaiah

36:13 Then Rabshakeh stood, and cried with a loud voice in the Jew's language, and said, Hear you* the words of the great king, the king of Assyria.

X Isaiah

36:14 Thus says the king, Let not Hezekiah deceive you*: for he will not be able to deliver you*.

X Isaiah

36:15 Neither let Hezekiah make you* trust in YHWH, saying, YHWH will surely deliver us: this city shall not be delivered into the hand of the king of Assyria.

X Isaiah

36:16 Listen not to Hezekiah: for thus says the king of Assyria, Make an agreement with me by a present, and come out to me: and eat you* every one of his vine, and every one of his fig-tree, and drink you* every one the waters of his own cistern;

X Isaiah

36:17 Until I come and take you* away to a land like your* own land, a land of grain and wine, a land of bread and vineyards.

X Isaiah

36:18 Beware lest Hezekiah persuade you*, saying, YHWH will deliver us. Has any of the elohims of the nations delivered his land out of the hand of the king of Assyria?

X Isaiah

36:19 Where are the elohims of Hamath and Arpad? where are the elohims of Sepharvaim? and have they delivered Samaria out of my hand?

X Isaiah

36:20 Who are they among all the elohims of these lands, that have delivered their land out of my hand, that YHWH should deliver Jerusalem out of my hand?

X Isaiah

36:21 But they held their peace, and answered him not a word: for the king's commandment was, saying, Answer him not.

X Isaiah

36:22 Then came Eliakim the son of Hilkiah, that was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and Joah, the son of Asaph, the recorder, to Hezekiah with their clothes rent, and told him the words of Rabshakeh.

X Isaiah

37:1 And it came to pass, when king Hezekiah heard it, that he rent his clothes, and covered himself with sackcloth, and went into the house of YHWH.

X Isaiah

37:2 And he sent Eliakim, who was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and the elders of the priests covered with sackcloth, to Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz.

X Isaiah

37:3 And they said to him, Thus says Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and of blasphemy: for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth.

X Isaiah

37:4 It may be YHWH your Elohim will hear the words of Rabshakeh, whom the king of Assyria his master has sent to reproach the living Elohim, and will reprove the words which YHWH your Elohim has heard: therefore lift up your prayer for the remnant that is left.

X Isaiah

37:5 So the servants of king Hezekiah came to Isaiah.

X Isaiah

37:6 And Isaiah said to them, Thus shall you* say to your* master, Thus says YHWH, Be not afraid of the words that you have heard, with which the servants of the king of Assyria have blasphemed me.

X Isaiah

37:7 Behold, I will send a blast upon him, and he shall hear a rumor, and return to his own land; and I will cause him to fall by the sword in his own land.

X Isaiah

37:8 So Rabshakeh returned, and found the king of Assyria warring against Libnah: for he had heard that he had departed from Lachish.

X Isaiah

37:9 And he heard it said concerning Tirhakah king of Cush, He is come forth to make war with you. And when he heard it, he sent messengers to Hezekiah, saying,

X Isaiah

37:10 Thus shall you* speak to Hezekiah king of Judah, saying, Let not your Elohim in whom you trustest, deceive you, saying, Jerusalem shall not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria.

X Isaiah

37:11 Behold, you have heard what the kings of Assyria have done to all lands by destroying them utterly; and shall you be delivered?

X Isaiah

37:12 Have the elohims of the nations delivered them which my fathers have destroyed, as Gozan, and Haran, and Rezeph, and the children of Eden who were in Telassar?

X Isaiah

37:13 Where is the king of Hamath, and the king of Arpad, and the king of the city of Sepharvaim, Hena, and Ivah?

X Isaiah

37:14 And Hezekiah received the letter from the hand of the messengers, and read it: and Hezekiah went up to the house of YHWH, and spread it before YHWH.

X Isaiah

37:15 And Hezekiah prayed to YHWH, saying,

X Isaiah

37:16 O YHWH of hosts, Elohim of Israel, that dwell between the cherubim, you are the Elohim, even you alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth: you have made heaven and earth.

X Isaiah

37:17 Incline your ear, O YHWH, and hear; open your eyes, O YHWH, and see: and hear all the words of Sennacherib, who has sent to reproach the living Elohim.

X Isaiah

37:18 Of a truth, YHWH, the kings of Assyria have laid waste all the nations, and their countries,

X Isaiah

37:19 And have cast their elohims into the fire: for they were no elohims, but the work of men's hands, wood and stone: therefore they have destroyed them.

X Isaiah

37:20 Now therefore, O YHWH our Elohim, save us from his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that you are YHWH, even you only.

X Isaiah

37:21 Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent to Hezekiah, saying, Thus says YHWH Elohim of Israel, Whereas you have prayed to me against Sennacherib king of Assyria:

X Isaiah

37:22 This is the word which YHWH has spoken concerning him; The virgin, the daughter of Zion, has despised you, and derided you; the daughter of Jerusalem has shaken her head at you.

X Isaiah

37:23 Whom have you reproached and blasphemed; and against whom have you exalted your voice, and lifted your eyes on high? even against the Holy One of Israel.

X Isaiah

37:24 By your servants have you reproached the Master, and have said, By the multitude of my chariots have I come up to the hight of the mountains, to the sides of Lebanon; and I will cut down its tall cedars, and its choice fir-trees: and I will enter into the hight of its border, and the forest of its Carmel.

X Isaiah

37:25 I have digged, and drank water; and with the sole of my feet have I dried up all the rivers of the besieged places.

X Isaiah

37:26 Have you not heard long ago, how I have done it; and of ancient times, that I have formed it? now have I brought it to pass, that you should be to lay waste fortified cities into ruinous heaps.

X Isaiah

37:27 Therefore their inhabitants were of small power, they were dismayed and confounded: they were as the grass of the field, and as the green herb, as the grass on the house-tops, and as grain blasted before it is grown up.

X Isaiah

37:28 But I know your abode, and your going out, and your coming in, and your rage against me.

X Isaiah

37:29 Because your rage against me, and your tumult, is come up into my ears, therefore I will put my hook in your nose, and my bridle in your lips, and I will turn you back by the way by which you came.

X Isaiah

37:30 And this shall be a sign to you, You* shall eat this year such as grows of itself; and the second year that which springeth of the same: and in the third year sow you*, and reap, and plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them.

X Isaiah

37:31 And the remnant that has escaped of the house of Judah shall again take root downward, and bear fruit upward:

X Isaiah

37:32 For out of Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant, and they that escape from mount Zion: the zeal of YHWH of hosts will do this.

X Isaiah

37:33 Therefore thus says YHWH concerning the king of Assyria, He shall not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow there, nor come before it with shields, nor cast a mound against it.

X Isaiah

37:34 By the way that he came, by the same shall he return, and shall not come into this city, says YHWH.

X Isaiah

37:35 For I will defend this city, to save it for my own sake, and for my servant David's sake.

X Isaiah

37:36 Then the angel of YHWH went forth, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians a hundred and eighty five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses.

X Isaiah

37:37 So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed, and went and returned, and dwelt at Nineveh.

X Isaiah

37:38 And it came to pass, as he was worshiping in the house of Nisroch his elohim, that Adrammelech and Sharezer his sons smote him with the sword; and they escaped into the land of Armenia: and Esar-haddon his son reigned in his stead.

X Isaiah

38:1 In those days was Hezekiah sick with a mortal disease. And Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz came to him, and said to him, Thus says YHWH, Set your house in order: for you shall die, and not live.

X Isaiah

38:2 Then Hezekiah turned his face towards the wall, and prayed to YHWH,

X Isaiah

38:3 And said, Remember now, O YHWH, I beseech you, how I have walked before you in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in your sight. And Hezekiah wept bitterly.

X Isaiah

38:4 Then came the word of YHWH to Isaiah, saying,

X Isaiah

38:5 Go and say to Hezekiah, Thus says YHWH, the Elohim of David your father, I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears: behold, I will add to your days fifteen years.

X Isaiah

38:6 And I will deliver you and this city from the hand of the king of Assyria: and I will defend this city.

X Isaiah

38:7 And this shall be a sign to you from YHWH, that YHWH will do this thing that he has spoken;

X Isaiah

38:8 Behold, I will bring again the shadow of the degrees, which has gone down on the sun-dial of Ahaz ten degrees backward. So the sun returned ten degrees, by which degrees it had gone down.

X Isaiah

38:9 The writing of Hezekiah king of Judah, when he had been sick, and had recovered from his sickness:

X Isaiah

38:10 I said in the cutting off of my days, I shall go to the gates of the grave: I am deprived of the residue of my years.

X Isaiah

38:11 I said, I shall not see YHWH, even YHWH, in the land of the living: I shall behold man no more with the inhabitants of the world.

X Isaiah

38:12 My age has departed, and is removed from me as a shepherd's tent: I have cut off like a weaver my life: he will cut me off with pining sickness: from day even to night will you make an end of me.

X Isaiah

38:13 I reckoned till morning, that, as a lion, so will he break all my bones: from day even to night will you make an end of me.

X Isaiah

38:14 Like a crane or a swallow, so I chattered: I mourned as a dove: my eyes fail with looking upward: O YHWH, I am oppressed; undertake for me.

X Isaiah

38:15 What shall I say? he has both spoken to me, and himself has done it: I shall go softly all my years in the bitterness of my soul.

X Isaiah

38:16 O Master, by these things men live, and in all these things is the life of my spirit: so will you recover me, and make me to live.

X Isaiah

38:17 Behold, for peace I had great bitterness: but you have in love to my soul delivered it from the pit of corruption: for you have cast all my sins behind your back.

X Isaiah

38:18 For the grave cannot praise you, death can not celebrate you: they that go down into the pit cannot hope for your truth.

X Isaiah

38:19 The living, the living, he shall praise you, as I do this day: the father to the children shall make known your truth.

X Isaiah

38:20 YHWH was ready to save me: therefore we will sing my songs to the stringed instruments all the days of our life in the house of YHWH.

X Isaiah

38:21 For Isaiah had said, Let them take a lump of figs, and lay it for a plaster upon the boil, and he will recover.

X Isaiah

38:22 Hezekiah also had said, What is the sign that I shall go up to the house of YHWH?

X Isaiah

39:1 At that time Merodach-baladan, the son of Baladan, king of Babylon, sent letters and a present to Hezekiah: for he had heard that he had been sick, and had recovered.

X Isaiah

39:2 And Hezekiah was glad of them, and showed them the house of his precious things, the silver, and the gold, and the spices, and the precious ointment, and all the house of his armor, and all that was found in his treasures: there was nothing in his house, nor in all his dominion, that Hezekiah did not show them.

X Isaiah

39:3 Then came Isaiah the prophet to king Hezekiah, and said to him, What said these men? and from what place came they to you? and Hezekiah said, They have come to me from a far country, even from Babylon.

X Isaiah

39:4 Then said he, What have they seen in your house? And Hezekiah answered, All that is in my house have they seen: there is nothing among my treasures that I have not showed them.

X Isaiah

39:5 Then said Isaiah to Hezekiah, Hear the word of YHWH of hosts:

X Isaiah

39:6 Behold, the days come, that all that is in your house, and that which your fathers have laid up in store until this day, shall be carried to Babylon: nothing shall be left, says YHWH.

X Isaiah

39:7 And of your sons that shall issue from you, which you shall beget, shall they take away; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon.

X Isaiah

39:8 Then said Hezekiah to Isaiah, Good is the word of YHWH which you have spoken. He said moreover, For there shall be peace and truth in my days.

X Isaiah

40:1 Comfort you*, comfort you* my people, says your* Elohim.

X Isaiah

40:2 Speak you* comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry to her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she has received from YHWH'S hand double for all her sins.

X Isaiah

40:3 The voice of him that cries in the wilderness, Prepare you* the way of YHWH, make straight in the desert a highway for our Elohim.

X Isaiah

40:4 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain.

X Isaiah

40:5 And the glory of YHWH shall be revealed, and all flesh together shall see it: for the mouth of YHWH has spoken it.

X Isaiah

40:6 The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all its goodliness is as the flower of the field:

X Isaiah

40:7 The grass withers, the flower fades: because the spirit of YHWH blows upon it: surely the people is grass.

X Isaiah

40:8 The grass withers, the flower fades: but the word of our Elohim shall shall stand forever.

X Isaiah

40:9 O Zion, that bringest good tidings, go up upon the high mountain: O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings, lift up your voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say to the cities of Judah, Behold your* Elohim!

X Isaiah

40:10 Behold, the Sovereign YHWH will come with strong hand, and his arm will rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.

X Isaiah

40:11 He will feed his flock like a shepherd: he will gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and will gently lead those that are with young.

X Isaiah

40:12 Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and measured heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?

X Isaiah

40:13 Who has directed the Spirit of YHWH, or being his counselor has taught him?

X Isaiah

40:14 With whom took he counsel, and who instructed him, and taught him in the path of judgment, and taught him knowledge, and showed to him the way of understanding?

X Isaiah

40:15 Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he takes up the islands as a very little thing.

X Isaiah

40:16 And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts of it sufficient for a burnt-offering.

X Isaiah

40:17 All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity.

X Isaiah

40:18 To whom then will you* liken Elohim? or what likeness will you* compare to him?

X Isaiah

40:19 The workman melts a graven image, and the goldsmith spreads it over with gold, and casts silver chains.

X Isaiah

40:20 He that is so impoverished that he has no oblation chooseth a tree that will not rot; he seeks for himself a skillful workman to prepare a graven image that shall not be moved.

X Isaiah

40:21 Have you* not known? have you* not heard? has it not been told you* from the beginning? have you* not understood from the foundations of the earth?

X Isaiah

40:22 It is he that sits upon the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are as grasshoppers; that stretches out the heavens as a curtain, and spreads them out as a tent to dwell in:

X Isaiah

40:23 That brings the princes to nothing; he makes the judges of the earth as vanity.

X Isaiah

40:24 Yes, they shall not be planted; yes, they shall not be sown: yes, their stock shall not take root in the earth: and he shall also blow upon them, and they shall wither, and the whirlwind shall take them away as stubble.

X Isaiah

40:25 To whom then will you* liken me, or shall I be equaled? says the Holy One.

X Isaiah

40:26 Lift up your* eyes on high, and behold who has created these things, that brings out their host by number: he calls them all by names, by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one fails.

X Isaiah

40:27 Why say you, O Jacob, and speak, O Israel, My way is hid from YHWH, and my judgment is passed over by my Elohim?

X Isaiah

40:28 Have you not known? have you not heard, that the everlasting Elohim, YHWH, the Creator of the ends of the earth, faints not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.

X Isaiah

40:29 He gives power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increases strength.

X Isaiah

40:30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:

X Isaiah

40:31 But they that wait upon YHWH shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall walk, and not faint.

X Isaiah

41:1 Keep silence before me, O islands; and let the people renew their strength: let them come near; then let them speak: let us come near together to judgment.

X Isaiah

41:2 Who raised up the righteous man from the east, called him to his foot, gave the nations before him, and made him rule over kings? he gave them as the dust to his sword, and as driven stubble to his bow.

X Isaiah

41:3 He pursued them, and passed safely; even by the way that he had not gone with his feet.

X Isaiah

41:4 Who has worked and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I YHWH, the first, and with the last; I am he.

X Isaiah

41:5 The islands saw it, and feared; the ends of the earth were afraid, drew near, and came.

X Isaiah

41:6 They helped every one his neighbor; and every one said to his brother, Be of good courage.

X Isaiah

41:7 So the carpenter encouraged the goldsmith, and he that smootheth with the hammer him that smote the anvil, saying, It is ready for the sodering: and he fastened it with nails, that it should not be moved.

X Isaiah

41:8 But you, Israel, are my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend.

X Isaiah

41:9 You whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called you from the chief men thereof, and said to you, You are my servant; I have chosen you, and not cast you away.

X Isaiah

41:10 Fear you not; for I am with you: be not dismayed; for I am your Elohim: I will strengthen you; yes, I will help you; yes, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness.

X Isaiah

41:11 Behold, all they that were incensed against you shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that contend with you shall perish.

X Isaiah

41:12 You shall seek them, and shall not find them, even them that contended with you: they that war against you shall be as nothing, and as a thing of naught.

X Isaiah

41:13 For I YHWH your Elohim will hold your right hand, saying to you, Fear not; I will help you.

X Isaiah

41:14 Fear not, you worm Jacob, and you* men of Israel; I will help you, says YHWH, and your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.

X Isaiah

41:15 Behold, I will make you a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: you shall thresh the mountains, and beat them small, and shall make the hills as chaff.

X Isaiah

41:16 You shall fan them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind shall scatter them: and you shall rejoice in YHWH, and shall glory in the Holy One of Israel.

X Isaiah

41:17 When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue fails for thirst, I YHWH will hear them, I the Elohim of Israel will not forsake them.

X Isaiah

41:18 I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.

X Isaiah

41:19 I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah-tree, and the myrtle, and the oil-tree; I will set in the desert the fir-tree, the pine, and the box-tree together:

X Isaiah

41:20 That they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of YHWH has done this, and the Holy One of Israel has created it.

X Isaiah

41:21 Produce your* cause, says YHWH; bring forth your* strong reasons, says the King of Jacob.

X Isaiah

41:22 Let them bring them forth, and show us what shall happen: let them show the former things, what they are that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare to us things to come.

X Isaiah

41:23 Show the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that you* are elohims: yes, do good, or do evil, that we may be dismayed, and behold it together.

X Isaiah

41:24 Behold, you* are of nothing, and your* work of naught: an abomination is he that chooseth you*.

X Isaiah

41:25 I have raised up one from the north, and he shall come: from the rising of the sun shall he call upon my name: and he shall come upon princes as upon mortar, and as the potter treads clay.

X Isaiah

41:26 Who has declared from the beginning, that we may know? and before time, that we may say, He is righteous? truly, there is none that shows, truly, there is none that declareth, truly, there is none that hears your* words.

X Isaiah

41:27 The first shall say to Zion, Behold, behold them: and I will give to Jerusalem one that brings good tidings.

X Isaiah

41:28 For I beheld, and there was no man; even among them, and there was no counselor, that, when I asked of them, could answer a word.

X Isaiah

41:29 Behold, they are all vanity, their works are nothing: their molten images are wind and confusion.

X Isaiah

42:1 Behold my servant, whom I uphold; my elect, in whom my soul delights; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.

X Isaiah

42:2 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.

X Isaiah

42:3 A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment to truth.

X Isaiah

42:4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he has set judgment in the earth: and the islands shall wait for his law.

X Isaiah

42:5 Thus says Elohim YHWH, he that created the heavens, and expanded them; he that spread forth the earth, and that which it produceth; he that gives breath to the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein.

X Isaiah

42:6 I YHWH have called you in righteousness, and will hold your hand, and will keep you, and give you for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;

X Isaiah

42:7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison-house.

X Isaiah

42:8 I am YHWH: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.

X Isaiah

42:9 Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you* of them.

X Isaiah

42:10 Sing to YHWH a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth, you* that go down to the sea, and all that is in it; the islands, and their inhabitants.

X Isaiah

42:11 Let the wilderness and its cities lift up their voice, the villages that Kedar does inhabit: let the inhabitants of the rock sing, let them shout from the top of the mountains.

X Isaiah

42:12 Let them give glory to YHWH, and declare his praise in the islands.

X Isaiah

42:13 YHWH will go forth as a mighty man, he will stir up jealousy like a man of war: he will cry, yes, roar; he will prevail against his enemies.

X Isaiah

42:14 I have long time held my peace; I have been still, and restrained myself: now will I cry like a travailing woman; I will destroy and devour at once.

X Isaiah

42:15 I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers to be islands, and I will dry up the pools.

X Isaiah

42:16 And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do for them, and not forsake them.

X Isaiah

42:17 They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images, that say to the molten images, You* are our elohims.

X Isaiah

42:18 Hear, you* deaf; and look, you* blind, that you* may see.

X Isaiah

42:19 Who is blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my messenger that I sent? who is blind as he that is perfect, and blind as YHWH'S servant?

X Isaiah

42:20 Seeing many things, but you observest not; opening the ears, but he hears not.

X Isaiah

42:21 YHWH is well pleased for his righteousness' sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honorable.

X Isaiah

42:22 But this is a people robbed and pillaged; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison-houses; they are for a prey, and none delivers; for a spoil, and none says, Restore.

X Isaiah

42:23 Who among you* will give ear to this? who will listen, and hear for the time to come?

X Isaiah

42:24 Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? did not YHWH, he against whom we have sinned? for they would not walk in his ways, neither were they obedient to his law.

X Isaiah

42:25 Therefore he has poured upon him the fury of his anger, and the strength of battle: and it has set him on fire around, yet he knew not; and it burned him, yet he laid it not to heart.

X Isaiah

43:1 But now thus says YHWH that created you, O Jacob, and he that formed you, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed you, I have called you by your name; you are mine.

X Isaiah

43:2 When you passest through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you: when you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon you.

X Isaiah

43:3 For I am YHWH your Elohim, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour: I gave Egypt for your ransom, Cush and Seba for you.

X Isaiah

43:4 Since you have been precious in my sight, you have been honorable, and I have loved you: therefore will I give men for you, and people for your life.

X Isaiah

43:5 Fear not: for I am with you: I will bring your seed from the east, and gather you from the west;

X Isaiah

43:6 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 ends of the earth;

X Isaiah

43:7 Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; truly, I have made him.

X Isaiah

43:8 Bring forth the blind people that have eyes, and the deaf that have ears.

X Isaiah

43:9 Let all the nations be collected, and let the people be assembled: who among them can declare this, and show us former things? let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified: or let them hear, and say, It is truth.

X Isaiah

43:10 You* are my witnesses, says YHWH, and my servant whom I have chosen: that you* may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no elohim formed, neither shall there be after me.

X Isaiah

43:11 I, even I, am YHWH; and besides me there is no saviour.

X Isaiah

43:12 I have declared, and have saved, and I have shown, when there was no strange elohim among you*: therefore you* are my witnesses, says YHWH, that I am Elohim.

X Isaiah

43:13 Yes, before the day was, I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall hinder it?

X Isaiah

43:14 Thus says YHWH, your* Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; For your* sake I have sent to Babylon, and have brought down all their nobles, and the Chaldeans, whose cry is in the ships.

X Isaiah

43:15 I am YHWH, your* Holy One, the Creator of Israel, your* King.

X Isaiah

43:16 Thus says YHWH, who makes a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters;

X Isaiah

43:17 Who brings forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power; they shall lie down together, they shall not rise: they are extinct, they are quenched as tow.

X Isaiah

43:18 Remember you* not the former things, neither consider the things of old.

X Isaiah

43:19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall you* not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

X Isaiah

43:20 The beast of the field shall honor me, the dragons and the owls: because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen.

X Isaiah

43:21 This people have I formed for myself; they shall show forth my praise.

X Isaiah

43:22 But you have not called upon me, O Jacob; but you have been weary of me, O Israel.

X Isaiah

43:23 You have not brought me the small cattle of your burnt-offerings; neither have you honored me with your sacrifices. I have not caused you to serve with an offering, nor wearied you with incense.

X Isaiah

43:24 You have bought me no sweet cane with money, neither have you filled me with the fat of your sacrifices: but you have made me to serve with your sins, you have wearied me with your iniquities.

X Isaiah

43:25 I, even I, am he that blotteth out your transgressions for my own sake, and will not remember your sins.

X Isaiah

43:26 Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare you, that you may be justified.

X Isaiah

43:27 Your first father has sinned, and your teachers have transgressed against me.

X Isaiah

43:28 Therefore I have profaned the princes of the sanctuary, and have given Jacob to the curse, and Israel to reproaches.

X Isaiah

44:1 Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant; and Israel, whom I have chosen:

X Isaiah

44:2 Thus says YHWH that made you, and formed you from the womb, who will help you: Fear not, O Jacob, my servant; and you, Jesurun, whom I have chosen.

X Isaiah

44:3 For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon your seed, and my blessing upon your offspring:

X Isaiah

44:4 And they shall spring up as among the grass, as willows by the watercourses.

X Isaiah

44:5 One shall say, I am YHWH'S; and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob; and another shall subscribe with his hand to YHWH, and surname himself by the name of Israel.

X Isaiah

44:6 Thus says YHWH the King of Israel, and his redeemer YHWH of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and besides me there is no Elohim.

X Isaiah

44:7 And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient people? and the things that are coming, and shall come, let them show to them.

X Isaiah

44:8 Fear you* not, neither be afraid: have not I told you from that time, and have declared it? you* are even my witnesses. Is there a Elohim besides me? truly there is no Elohim; I know not any.

X Isaiah

44:9 They that make a graven image are all of them vanity; and their delectable things shall not profit; and they are their own witnesses; they see not, nor know; that they may be ashamed.

X Isaiah

44:10 Who has formed a elohim, or cast a graven image that is profitable for nothing?

X Isaiah

44:11 Behold, all his fellows shall be ashamed: and the workmen, they are of men: let them all be assembled, let them stand up; yet they shall fear, and they shall be ashamed together.

X Isaiah

44:12 The smith with the tongs both works in the coals, and fashions it with hammers, and works it with the strength of his arms: yes, he is hungry, and his strength fails: he drinks no water, and is faint.

X Isaiah

44:13 The carpenter stretches out his rule; he marketh it out with a line; he fitteth it with planes, and he marketh it out with the compass, and makes it after the figure of a man, according to the beauty of a man; that it may remain in the house.

X Isaiah

44:14 He heweth down cedars for himself, and takes the cypress and the oak, which he strengtheneth for himself among the trees of the forest: he planteth an ash, and the rain does nourish it.

X Isaiah

44:15 Then shall it be for a man to burn: for he will take of it, and warm himself; indeed he kindleth it, and baketh bread; yes, he makes a elohim, and worship it; he makes it a graven image, and falls down to it.

X Isaiah

44:16 He burns part of it in the fire; with part of it he eats flesh; he roasts meat, and is satisfied: yes, he warmeth himself, and says, Aha, I am warm, I have seen the fire:

X Isaiah

44:17 And the residue of it he makes a elohim, even his graven image: he falls down to it, and worship it, and prays to it, and says, Deliver me; for you are my elohim.

X Isaiah

44:18 They have not known nor understood: for he has shut their eyes, that they cannot see; and their hearts, that they cannot understand.

X Isaiah

44:19 And none considers in his heart, neither is there knowledge nor understanding to say, I have burned part of it in the fire; I have also baked bread upon its coals; I have roasted flesh, and eaten it: and shall I make the residue of it an abomination? shall I fall down to the stock of a tree?

X Isaiah

44:20 He feeds on ashes: a deceived heart has turned him aside, that he cannot deliver his soul, nor say, Is there not a lie in my right hand?

X Isaiah

44:21 Remember these, O Jacob and Israel; for you are my servant: I have formed you; you are my servant: O Israel, you shall not be forgotten by me.

X Isaiah

44:22 I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, your transgressions, and as a cloud, your sins: return to me; for I have redeemed you.

X Isaiah

44:23 Sing, O you* heavens; for YHWH has done it: shout, you* lower parts of the earth: break forth into singing, you* mountains, O forest, and every tree therein: for YHWH has redeemed Jacob, and glorified himself in Israel.

X Isaiah

44:24 Thus says YHWH your Redeemer, and he that formed you from the womb, I am YHWH that makes all things; that stretches forth the heavens alone; that spreads abroad the earth by myself:

X Isaiah

44:25 That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and makes diviners mad; that turns wise men backward, and makes their knowledge foolish;

X Isaiah

44:26 That confirmeth the word of his servant, and performs the counsel of his messengers; that says to Jerusalem, You shall be inhabited; and to the cities of Judah, You* shall be built, and I will raise up her decayed places:

X Isaiah

44:27 That says to the deep, Be dry, and I will dry up your rivers:

X Isaiah

44:28 That says of Cyrus, He is my shepherd, and he shall perform all my pleasure: even saying to Jerusalem, You shall be built; and to the temple, Your foundation shall be laid.

X Isaiah

45:1 Thus says YHWH to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have held to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two-leaved gates, and the gates shall not be shut;

X Isaiah

45:2 I will go before you, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut asunder the bars of iron:

X Isaiah

45:3 And I will give you the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, YHWH, who call you by your name, am the Elohim of Israel.

X Isaiah

45:4 For Jacob my servant's sake, and Israel my elect, I have even called you by your name: I have surnamed you, though you have not known me:

X Isaiah

45:5 I am YHWH, and there is none else, there is no Elohim besides me: I girded you, though you have not known me:

X Isaiah

45:6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none besides me. I am YHWH, and there is none else.

X Isaiah

45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I YHWH do all these things.

X Isaiah

45:8 Drop down, you* heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I YHWH have created it.

X Isaiah

45:9 Woe to him that contends with his Maker! Let the potsherd contend with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashions it, What make you? or your work, He has no hands?

X Isaiah

45:10 Woe to him that says to his father, What beget you? or to the woman, What have you brought forth?

X Isaiah

45:11 Thus says YHWH, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command you* me.

X Isaiah

45:12 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.

X Isaiah

45:13 I have raised him up in righteousness, and I will direct all his ways: he shall build my city, and he shall let go my captives, not for price nor reward, says YHWH of hosts.

X Isaiah

45:14 Thus says YHWH, The labor of Egypt, and merchandise of Cush and of the Sabeans, men of stature, shall come over to you, and they shall be yours: they shall come after you; in chains they shall come over, and they shall fall down to you, they shall make supplication to you, saying, Surely Elohim is in you; and there is none else, there is no Elohim.

X Isaiah

45:15 Truly you are a Elohim that hide yourself, O Elohim of Israel, the Saviour.

X Isaiah

45:16 They shall be ashamed, and also confounded, all of them: they shall go to confusion together that are makers of idols.

X Isaiah

45:17 But Israel shall be saved in YHWH with an everlasting salvation: you* shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end.

X Isaiah

45:18 For thus says YHWH that created the heavens; Elohim himself that formed the earth and made it; he has established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am YHWH; and there is none else.

X Isaiah

45:19 I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I have not said to the seed of Jacob, Seek you* me in vain: I YHWH speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.

X Isaiah

45:20 Assemble yourselves* and come; draw near together, you* that have escaped of the nations: they have no knowledge that set up the wood of their graven image, and pray to a elohim that cannot save.

X Isaiah

45:21 Tell you*, and bring them near; yes, let them take counsel together: who has declared this from ancient time? who has told it from that time? have not I YHWH? and there is no Elohim else besides me; a just Elohim and a Saviour; there is none besides me.

X Isaiah

45:22 Look to me, and be you* saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am Elohim, and there is none else.

X Isaiah

45:23 I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That to me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.

X Isaiah

45:24 Surely, shall one say, in YHWH have I righteousness and strength: even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed.

X Isaiah

45:25 In YHWH shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory.

X Isaiah

46:1 Bel bows down, Nebo stoopeth, their idols were upon the beasts, and upon the cattle: your* loads were heavy; they were a burden to the weary beast.

X Isaiah

46:2 They stoop, they bow down together; they could not deliver the burden, but themselves have gone into captivity.

X Isaiah

46:3 Listen to me, O house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel, which are borne by me from the birth, which are carried from the womb:

X Isaiah

46:4 And even to your* old age I am he; and even to hoary hairs will I carry you*: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you*.

X Isaiah

46:5 To whom will you* liken me, and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be like?

X Isaiah

46:6 They lavish gold out of the bag, and weigh silver in the balance, and hire a goldsmith; and he makes it a elohim: they fall down, yes, they worship.

X Isaiah

46:7 They bear him upon the shoulder, they carry him, and set him in his place, and he stands; from his place shall he not remove: yes, one shall cry to him, yet he cannot answer, nor save him out of his trouble.

X Isaiah

46:8 Remember this, and show yourselves* men: bring it again to mind, O you* transgressors.

X Isaiah

46:9 Remember the former things of old: for I am Elohim, and there is none else; I am Elohim, and there is none like me,

X Isaiah

46:10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

X Isaiah

46:11 Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executes my counsel from a far country: yes, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also perform it.

X Isaiah

46:12 Listen to me, you* stout-hearted, that are far from righteousness:

X Isaiah

46:13 I bring near my righteousness; it shall not be far off, and my salvation shall not delay: and I will place salvation in Zion for Israel my glory.

X Isaiah

47:1 Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground: there is no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for you shall no more be called tender and delicate.

X Isaiah

47:2 Take the millstones, and grind meal: uncover your locks, make bare the leg, uncover the thigh, pass over the rivers.

X Isaiah

47:3 Your nakedness shall be uncovered, yes, your shame shall be seen: I will take vengeance, and I will not meet you as a man.

X Isaiah

47:4 As for our Redeemer, YHWH of hosts is his name, the Holy One of Israel.

X Isaiah

47:5 Sit you silent, and get you into darkness, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for you shall no more be called, The lady of kingdoms.

X Isaiah

47:6 I was angry with my people, I have polluted my inheritance, and given them into your hand: you did show them no mercy; upon the ancient have you very heavily laid your yoke.

X Isaiah

47:7 And you said, I shall be a lady forever: so that you did not lay these things to your heart, neither did remember the latter end of it.

X Isaiah

47:8 Therefore hear now this, you that are given to pleasures, that dwell carelessly, that say in your heart, I am, and none else besides me; I shall not sit as a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children:

X Isaiah

47:9 But these two things shall come to you in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood: they shall come upon you in their perfection, for the multitude of your sorceries, and for the great abundance of your enchantments.

X Isaiah

47:10 For you have trusted in your wickedness: you have said, None sees me. Your wisdom and your knowledge, it has perverted you; and you have said in your heart, I am, and none else besides me.

X Isaiah

47:11 Therefore shall evil come upon you; you shall not know from what place it rises: and mischief shall fall upon you; you shall not be able to put it off: and desolation shall come upon you suddenly, which you shall not know.

X Isaiah

47:12 Stand now with your enchantments, and with the multitude of your sorceries, in which you have labored from your youth; if you shall be able to profit, if you may prevail.

X Isaiah

47:13 You are wearied in the multitude of your counsels. Let now the astrologers, the star-gazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save you from these things that shall come upon you.

X Isaiah

47:14 Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it.

X Isaiah

47:15 Thus shall they be to you with whom you have labored, even your merchants, from your youth: they shall wander every one to his quarter; none shall save you.

X Isaiah

48:1 Hear you* this, O house of Jacob, who are called by the name of Israel, and have come forth out of the waters of Judah, who swear by the name of YHWH, and make mention of the Elohim of Israel, but not in truth, nor in righteousness.

X Isaiah

48:2 For they call themselves of the holy city, and stay themselves upon the Elohim of Israel; YHWH of hosts is his name.

X Isaiah

48:3 I have declared the former things from the beginning; and they went forth from my mouth, and I showed them; I did them suddenly, and they came to pass.

X Isaiah

48:4 Because I knew that you are obstinate, and your neck is an iron sinew, and your brow brass;

X Isaiah

48:5 I have even from the beginning declared it to you; before it came to pass I showed it you: lest you should say, My idol has done them, and my graven image, and my molten image, has commanded them.

X Isaiah

48:6 You have heard, see all this; and will not you* declare it? I have showed you* new things from this time, even hidden things, and you did not know them.

X Isaiah

48:7 They are created now, and not from the beginning; even before the day when you heard them not; lest you should say, Behold, I knew them.

X Isaiah

48:8 Yes, you heard not; yes, you knew not; yes, from that time that your ear was not opened: for I knew that you would deal very treacherously, and were called a transgressor from the womb.

X Isaiah

48:9 For my name's sake will I defer my anger, and for my praise will I refrain for you, that I cut you not off.

X Isaiah

48:10 Behold, I have refined you, but not with silver; I have chosen you in the furnace of affliction.

X Isaiah

48:11 For my own sake, even for my own sake, will I do it: for how should my name be profaned? and I will not give my glory to another.

X Isaiah

48:12 Listen to me, O Jacob and Israel, my called; I am he; I am the first, I also am the last.

X Isaiah

48:13 My hand also has laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand has spanned the heavens: when I call to them, they stand up together.

X Isaiah

48:14 All you*, assemble yourselves* and hear; who among them has declared these things? YHWH has loved him: he will do his pleasure on Babylon, and his arm shall be on the Chaldeans.

X Isaiah

48:15 I, even I, have spoken, yes, I have called him: I have brought him, and he shall make his way prosperous.

X Isaiah

48:16 Come you* near to me, hear you* this; I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it was, there am I: and now the Sovereign YHWH, and his Spirit, has sent me.

X Isaiah

48:17 Thus says YHWH, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am YHWH your Elohim, who teaches you to profit, who leads you by the way that you should go.

X Isaiah

48:18 O that you had listened to my commandments! then had your peace been as a river, and your righteousness as the waves of the sea:

X Isaiah

48:19 Your seed also had been as the sand, and the offspring of your bowels like its gravel; his name should not have been cut off nor destroyed from before me.

X Isaiah

48:20 Go you* forth from Babylon, flee you* from the Chaldeans, with a voice of singing declare you*, tell this, utter it even to the end of the earth; say you*, YHWH has redeemed his servant Jacob.

X Isaiah

48:21 And they thirsted not, when he led them through the deserts: he caused the waters to flow out of the rock for them: he cleaved the rock also, and the waters gushed out.

X Isaiah

48:22 There is no peace, says YHWH, to the wicked.

X Isaiah

49:1 Listen to me, O Islands; and listen, you* people, from far; YHWH has called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother has he made mention of my name.

X Isaiah

49:2 And he has made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shade of his hand has he hid me, and made me a polished shaft; in his quiver has he hid me;

X Isaiah

49:3 And said to me, You are my servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.

X Isaiah

49:4 Then I said, I have labored in vain, I have spent my strength for naught, and in vain; yet surely my judgment is with YHWH, and my work with my Elohim.

X Isaiah

49:5 And now, says YHWH that formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of YHWH, and my Elohim shall be my strength.

X Isaiah

49:6 And he said, It is a light thing that you should be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give you for a light to the Gentiles, that you may be my salvation to the end of the earth.

X Isaiah

49:7 Thus says YHWH, the Redeemer of Israel, and his Holy One, to him whom man despises, to him whom the nation abhors, to a servant of rulers, kings shall see and arise, princes also shall worship, because of YHWH that is faithful, and the Holy One of Israel, and he shall choose you.

X Isaiah

49:8 Thus says YHWH, In an acceptable time have I heard you, and in a day of salvation have I helped you: and I will preserve you, and give you for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages:

X Isaiah

49:9 That you may say to the prisoners, Go forth; to them that are in darkness, Show yourselves*. They shall feed in the ways, and their pastures shall be in all high places.

X Isaiah

49:10 They shall not hunger nor thirst, neither shall the heat nor sun smite them: for he that has mercy on them shall lead them, even by the springs of water shall he guide them.

X Isaiah

49:11 And I will make all my mountains a way, and my highways shall be exalted.

X Isaiah

49:12 Behold, these shall come from far: and lo, these from the north and from the west; and these from the land of Sinim.

X Isaiah

49:13 Sing, O heavens, and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains: for YHWH has comforted his people, and will have mercy upon his afflicted.

X Isaiah

49:14 But Zion said, YHWH has forsaken me, and my Master has forgotten me.

X Isaiah

49:15 Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yes, they may forget, yet I will not forget you.

X Isaiah

49:16 Behold, I have graven you upon the palms of my hands; your walls are continually before me.

X Isaiah

49:17 Your children shall make hurry; your destroyers and they that made you waste, shall go forth from you.

X Isaiah

49:18 Lift up your eyes around, and behold: all these assemble themselves, and come to you. As I live, says YHWH, you shall surely clothe you with them all, as with an ornament, and bind them on you, as a bride does.

X Isaiah

49:19 For your waste and your desolate places, and the land of your destruction, shall even now be too narrow by reason of the inhabitants, and they that swallowed you up shall be far away.

X Isaiah

49:20 The children which you shall have, after you have lost the other, shall say again in your ears, The place is too narrow for me: give place to me that I may dwell.

X Isaiah

49:21 Then shall you say in your heart, Who has begotten these for me, seeing I have lost my children, and am desolate, a captive, and removing to and fro? and who has brought up these? Behold, I was left alone; these, where have they been?

X Isaiah

49:22 Thus says the Sovereign YHWH, Behold, I will lift up my hand to the Gentiles, and set up my standard to the people: and they shall bring your sons in their arms, and your daughters shall be carried upon their shoulders.

X Isaiah

49:23 And kings shall be your nursing fathers, and their queens your nursing mothers: they shall bow to you with their face towards the earth, and lick up the dust of your feet; and you shall know that I am YHWH: for they shall not be ashamed that wait for me.

X Isaiah

49:24 Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captive delivered?

X Isaiah

49:25 But thus says YHWH, 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 contends with you, and I will save your children.

X Isaiah

49:26 And I will feed them that oppress you with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I YHWH am your Saviour and your Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.

X Isaiah

50:1 Thus says YHWH, Where is the bill of your* mother's divorcement, whom I have put away? or which of my creditors is it to whom I have sold you*? Behold, for your* iniquities have you* sold yourselves*, and for your* transgressions is your* mother put away.

X Isaiah

50:2 Why, when I came, was there no man? when I called, was there none to answer? Is my hand shortened at all, that it cannot redeem? or have I no power to deliver? behold, at my rebuke I dry up the sea, I make the rivers a wilderness: their fish becomes putrid, because there is no water, and dies for thirst.

X Isaiah

50:3 I clothe the heavens with blackness, and I make sackcloth their covering.

X Isaiah

50:4 The Sovereign YHWH has given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth my ear to hear as the learned.

X Isaiah

50:5 The Sovereign YHWH opened my ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away back.

X Isaiah

50:6 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.

X Isaiah

50:7 For the Sovereign YHWH will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed.

X Isaiah

50:8 He is near that justifies me; who will contend with me? let us stand together; who is my adversary? let him come near to me.

X Isaiah

50:9 Behold the Sovereign YHWH will help me; who is he that shall condemn me? lo, they all shall wax old as a garment; the moth shall eat them up.

X Isaiah

50:10 Who is among you* that fears YHWH, that obeys the voice of his servant, that walks in darkness, and has no light? let him trust in the name of YHWH, and rely upon his Elohim.

X Isaiah

50:11 Behold, all you* that kindle a fire, that encompass yourselves* with sparks: walk in the light of your* fire, and in the sparks that you* have kindled. This shall you* have of my hand; you* shall lie down in sorrow.

X Isaiah

51:1 Listen to me, you* that follow after righteousness, you* that seek YHWH: look to the rock what place you* are cut, and to the hole of the pit what place you* are digged.

X Isaiah

51:2 Look to Abraham your* father, and to Sarah that bore you*: for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him.

X Isaiah

51:3 For YHWH will comfort Zion: he will comfort all her waste places; and he will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of YHWH; joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody.

X Isaiah

51:4 Listen to me, my people; and give ear to me, O my nation: for a law shall proceed from me, and I will make my judgment to rest for a light of the people.

X Isaiah

51:5 My righteousness is near; my salvation is gone forth, and my arms shall judge the people; the islands shall wait upon me, and on my arm shall they trust.

X Isaiah

51:6 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 become old like a garment, and its inhabitants shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be forever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.

X Isaiah

51:7 Listen to me, you* that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law; fear you* not the reproach of men, neither be you* afraid of their revilings.

X Isaiah

51:8 For the moth shall eat them like a garment, and the worm shall eat them like wool: but my righteousness shall be forever, and my salvation from generation to generation.

X Isaiah

51:9 Awake, awake, put on your strength, O arm of YHWH; awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old. Are you not that which has cut Rahab, and wounded the dragon?

X Isaiah

51:10 Are you not that which has dried the sea, the waters of the great deep; that has made the depths of the sea a way for the ransomed to pass over?

X Isaiah

51:11 Therefore the redeemed of YHWH shall return, and come with singing to Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; sorrow and mourning shall flee away.

X Isaiah

51:12 I, even I, am he that comforts you*: who are you, that you should be afraid of a man that shall die, and of the son of man who shall be made as grass;

X Isaiah

51:13 And forget YHWH your maker, that has stretched forth the heavens, and laid the foundations of the earth; and have feared continually every day because of the fury of the oppressor, as if he were ready to destroy? and where is the fury of the oppressor?

X Isaiah

51:14 The captive exile hasteneth that he may be loosed, and that he should not die in the pit, nor that his bread should fail.

X Isaiah

51:15 But I am YHWH your Elohim, that divided the sea, whose waves roared: YHWH of hosts is his name.

X Isaiah

51:16 And I have put my words in your mouth, and have covered you in the shade of my hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say to Zion, You are my people.

X Isaiah

51:17 Awake, awake, stand up, O Jerusalem, which have drank at the hand of YHWH the cup of his fury; you have drank the dregs of the cup of trembling, and wrung them out.

X Isaiah

51:18 There is none to guide her among all the sons whom she has brought forth; neither is there any that takes her by the hand of all the sons that she has brought up.

X Isaiah

51:19 These two things have come to you; who shall be sorry for you? desolation, and destruction, and famine, and the sword: by whom shall I comfort you?

X Isaiah

51:20 Your sons have fainted, they lie at the head of all the streets, as a wild bull in a net: they are full of the fury of YHWH, the rebuke of your Elohim.

X Isaiah

51:21 Therefore hear now this, you afflicted, and drunken, but not with wine:

X Isaiah

51:22 Thus says your Sovereign YHWH, and your Elohim that pleadeth the cause of his people, Behold, I have taken out of your hand the cup of trembling, even the dregs of the cup of my fury; you shall no more drink it again:

X Isaiah

51:23 But I will put it into the hand of them that afflict you; who have said to your soul, Prostrate yourself, that we may go over: and you have laid your body as the ground, and as the street, to them that went over.

X Isaiah

52:1 Awake, awake, put on your strength, O Zion; put on your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city: for from now on there shall no more come into you the uncircumcised and the unclean.

X Isaiah

52:2 Shake yourself from the dust; arise, and sit down, O Jerusalem: loose yourself from the bands of your neck, O captive daughter of Zion.

X Isaiah

52:3 For thus says YHWH, You* have sold yourselves* for naught; and you* shall be redeemed without money.

X Isaiah

52:4 For thus says the Sovereign YHWH, My people went down formerly into Egypt to sojourn there; and the Assyrian oppressed them without cause.

X Isaiah

52:5 Now therefore, what have I here, says YHWH, that my people is taken away for naught? they that rule over them make them to howl, says YHWH; and my name continually every day is blasphemed.

X Isaiah

52:6 Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall know in that day that I am he that does speak: behold, it is I.

X Isaiah

52:7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that brings good tidings, that publisheth peace; that brings good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that says to Zion, Your Elohim reigns!

X Isaiah

52:8 Your watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when YHWH shall bring again Zion.

X Isaiah

52:9 Break forth into joy, sing together, you* waste places of Jerusalem: for YHWH has comforted his people, he has redeemed Jerusalem.

X Isaiah

52:10 YHWH has made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations: and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our Elohim.

X Isaiah

52:11 Depart you*, depart you*, go you* out from that place, touch no unclean thing; go you* out of the midst of her; be you* clean, that bear the vessels of YHWH.

X Isaiah

52:12 For you* shall not go out with hurry, nor go by flight: for YHWH will go before you*; and the Elohim of Israel will be your* rear-ward.

X Isaiah

52:13 Behold, my servant shall deal prudently, he shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high.

X Isaiah

52:14 As many were astonished at you; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men:

X Isaiah

52:15 So shall he sprinkle many nations; the 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 consider.

X Isaiah

53:1 Who has believed our report? and to whom is the arm of YHWH revealed?

X Isaiah

53:2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he has no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

X Isaiah

53:3 He is despised and rejected by men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

X Isaiah

53:4 Surely he has borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten by Elohim, and afflicted.

X Isaiah

53:5 But he was wounded for our transgression, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

X Isaiah

53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and YHWH has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

X Isaiah

53:7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth; he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he opened not his mouth.

X Isaiah

53:8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off from the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.

X Isaiah

53:9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death: because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.

X Isaiah

53:10 Yet it pleased YHWH to bruise him; he has put him to grief: when you shall make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of YHWH shall prosper in his hand.

X Isaiah

53:11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.

X Isaiah

53:12 Therefore I will divide to him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he has poured out his soul to death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

X Isaiah

54:1 Sing, O barren, you that did not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, you that did not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, says YHWH.

X Isaiah

54:2 Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them extend the curtains of your habitations: spare not, lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes;

X Isaiah

54:3 For you shall break forth on the right hand and on the left; and your seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.

X Isaiah

54:4 Fear not; for you shall not be ashamed: neither be you confounded; for you shall not be put to shame; for you shall forget the shame of your youth, and shall not remember the reproach of your widowhood any more.

X Isaiah

54:5 For your maker is your husband; YHWH of hosts is his name; and your Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The Elohim of the whole earth shall he be called.

X Isaiah

54:6 For YHWH has called you as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth, when you were refused, says your Elohim.

X Isaiah

54:7 For a small moment have I forsaken you; but with great mercies will I gather you.

X Isaiah

54:8 In a little wrath I hid my face from you for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on you, says YHWH your Redeemer.

X Isaiah

54:9 For this is as the waters of Noah to me: for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah shall no more overflow the earth; so have I sworn that I will not be angry with you, nor rebuke you.

X Isaiah

54:10 For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed, but my kindness shall not depart from you, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, says YHWH that has mercy on you.

X Isaiah

54:11 Oh you afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will lay your stones with fair colors, and lay your foundations with sapphires.

X Isaiah

54:12 And I will make your windows of agates, and your gates of carbuncles, and all your borders of pleasant stones.

X Isaiah

54:13 And all your children shall be taught from YHWH; and great shall be the peace of your children.

X Isaiah

54:14 In righteousness shall you be established: you shall be far from oppression; for you shall not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near you.

X Isaiah

54:15 Behold, they shall surely assemble but not by me: whoever shall assemble against you shall fall for your sake.

X Isaiah

54:16 Behold, I have created the smith that blows the coals in the fire, and that brings forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.

X Isaiah

54:17 No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of YHWH, and their righteousness is from me, says YHWH.

X Isaiah

55:1 Ho, every one that thirsts, come you* to the waters, and he that has no money; come you*, buy, and eat; yes, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.

X Isaiah

55:2 Why do you* spend money for that which is not bread? and your* labor for that which satisfieth not? listen diligently to me, and eat you* that which is good, and let your* soul delight itself in fatness.

X Isaiah

55:3 Incline your* ear, and come to me: hear, and your* soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you*, even the sure mercies of David.

X Isaiah

55:4 Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people.

X Isaiah

55:5 Behold, you shall call a nation that you know not, and nations that knew not you shall run to you because of YHWH your Elohim, and for the Holy One of Israel, for he has glorified you.

X Isaiah

55:6 Seek you* YHWH while he may be found, call you* upon him while he is near:

X Isaiah

55:7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return to YHWH, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our Elohim, for he will abundantly pardon.

X Isaiah

55:8 For my thoughts are not your* thoughts, neither are your* ways my ways, says YHWH.

X Isaiah

55:9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your* ways, and my thoughts than your* thoughts.

X Isaiah

55:10 For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and returns not toward that place, but waters the earth, and makes it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

X Isaiah

55:11 So shall my word be that proceeds from my mouth: it shall not return to me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

X Isaiah

55:12 For you* 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 field shall clap their hands.

X Isaiah

55:13 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 YHWH for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.

X Isaiah

56:1 Thus says YHWH, Keep you* judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed.

X Isaiah

56:2 Blessed is the man that does this, and the son of man that lays hold on it; that keeps the sabbath from profaning it, and keeps his hand from doing any evil.

X Isaiah

56:3 Neither let the son of the stranger, that has joined himself to YHWH, speak, saying, YHWH has utterly separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree.

X Isaiah

56:4 For thus says YHWH to the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant;

X Isaiah

56:5 Even to them will I give in my house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.

X Isaiah

56:6 Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to YHWH, to serve him, and to love the name of YHWH, to be his servants, every one that keeps the sabbath from profaning it, and takes hold of my covenant;

X Isaiah

56:7 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 my altar; for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all people.

X Isaiah

56:8 The Sovereign YHWH who gathers the outcasts of Israel, Yet will I gather others to him, besides those that are gathered to him.

X Isaiah

56:9 All you* beasts of the field, come to devour, yes, all you* beasts in the forest.

X Isaiah

56:10 His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.

X Isaiah

56:11 Yes, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.

X Isaiah

56:12 Come you*, say they, I will bring wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and to-morrow shall be as this day, and much more abundant.

X Isaiah

57:1 The righteous perishes, and no man lays it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come.

X Isaiah

57:2 He shall enter into peace: they shall rest in their beds, each one walking in his uprightness.

X Isaiah

57:3 But draw near here, you* sons of the sorceress, the seed of the adulterer and the whore.

X Isaiah

57:4 Against whom do you* joking yourselves*? against whom make you* a wide mouth, and thrust out the tongue? are you* not children of transgression, a seed of falsehood,

X Isaiah

57:5 Inflaming yourselves* with idols under every green tree, slaying the children in the valleys under the cliffs of the rocks?

X Isaiah

57:6 Among the smooth stones of the stream is your portion; they, they are your lot: even to them have you poured a drink-offering, you have offered a meat-offering. Should I receive comfort in these?

X Isaiah

57:7 Upon a lofty and high mountain have you set your bed: even toward that place you went up to offer sacrifice.

X Isaiah

57:8 Behind the doors also and the posts have you set up your remembrance: for you have uncovered yourself to another than me, and have gone up; you have enlarged your bed, and made you a covenant with them; you loved their bed where you saw it.

X Isaiah

57:9 And you went to the king with ointment, and did increase your perfumes, and did send your messengers far off, and did debase yourself even to hell.

X Isaiah

57:10 You are wearied in the greatness of your way; yet said you not, There is no hope: you have found the life of your hand; therefore you were not grieved.

X Isaiah

57:11 And of whom have you been afraid or feared, that you have lied, and have not remembered me, nor laid it to your heart? have not I held my peace even of old, and you fear me not?

X Isaiah

57:12 I will declare your righteousness, and your works; for they shall not profit you.

X Isaiah

57:13 When you cry, let your companies deliver you; but the wind shall carry them all away; vanity shall take them: but he that puts his trust in me shall possess the land, and shall inherit my holy mountain;

X Isaiah

57:14 And shall say, Cast you* up, cast you* up, prepare the way, take up the stumbling-block out of the way of my people.

X Isaiah

57:15 For thus says 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 ones.

X Isaiah

57:16 For I will not contend forever, neither will I be always angry: for the spirit would fail before me, and the souls which I have made.

X Isaiah

57:17 For the iniquity of his covetousness I was angry, and smote him: I hid me, and was angry, and he went on frowardly in the way of his heart.

X Isaiah

57:18 I have seen his ways, and will heal him: I will lead him also, and restore comforts to him and to his mourners.

X Isaiah

57:19 I create the fruit of the lips; Peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near, says YHWH; and I will heal him.

X Isaiah

57:20 But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt.

X Isaiah

57:21 There is no peace, says my Elohim, to the wicked.

X Isaiah

58:1 Cry aloud, spare not, lift up your voice like a trumpet, and show my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.

X Isaiah

58:2 Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their Elohim: they ask of me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to Elohim.

X Isaiah

58:3 Why have we fasted, say they, and you see not? why have we afflicted our soul, and you takest no knowledge? Behold, in the day of your* fast you* find pleasure, and exact all your* labors.

X Isaiah

58:4 Behold, you* fast for strife and debate, and to smite with the fist of wickedness: you* shall not fast as you* do this day, to make your* voice to be heard on high.

X Isaiah

58:5 Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? will you call this a fast, and an acceptable day to YHWH?

X Isaiah

58:6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that you* break every yoke?

X Isaiah

58:7 Is it not to deal your bread to the hungry, and that you should bring the poor that are cast out to your house? when you see the naked, that you should cover him; and that you should not hide yourself from your own flesh?

X Isaiah

58:8 Then shall your light break forth as the morning, and your health shall spring forth speedily: and your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of YHWH shall be your rear-ward.

X Isaiah

58:9 Then shall you call, and YHWH will answer; you shall cry, and he will say, Here I am. If you shall take away from the midst of you the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity;

X Isaiah

58:10 And if you shall draw out your soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall your light rise in obscurity, and your darkness be as the noon day:

X Isaiah

58:11 And YHWH will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in drought, and make fat your bones: and you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.

X Isaiah

58:12 And they that shall be of you shall build the old waste places: you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.

X Isaiah

58:13 If you shall turn away your foot from the sabbath, from doing your pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of YHWH, honorable; and shall honor him, not doing your own ways, nor finding your own pleasure, nor speaking your own words:

X Isaiah

58:14 Then shall you delight yourself in YHWH; and I will cause you to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father: for the mouth of YHWH has spoken it.

X Isaiah

59:1 Behold, YHWH'S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:

X Isaiah

59:2 But your* iniquities have separated between you* and your* Elohim, and your* sins have hid his face from you*, that he will not hear.

X Isaiah

59:3 For your* hands are defiled with blood, and your* fingers with iniquity; your* lips have spoken lies, your* tongue has uttered perverseness.

X Isaiah

59:4 None calls for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.

X Isaiah

59:5 They hatch cockatrice eggs, and weave the spider's web: he that eats of their eggs dies, and that which is crushed breaks out into a viper.

X Isaiah

59:6 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.

X Isaiah

59:7 Their feet run to evil, and they make hurry to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths.

X Isaiah

59:8 The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whoever goes therein shall not know peace.

X Isaiah

59:9 Therefore is judgment far from us, neither does justice overtake us: we wait for light, but behold obscurity; for brightness, but we walk in darkness.

X Isaiah

59:10 We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes: we stumble at noon day as in the night; we are in desolate places as dead men.

X Isaiah

59:11 We all roar like bears, and mourn bitterly like doves: we look for judgment, but there is none; for salvation, but it is far from us.

X Isaiah

59:12 For our transgressions are multiplied before you, and our sins testify against us: for our transgressions are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them;

X Isaiah

59:13 In transgressing and lying against YHWH, and departing away from our Elohim, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.

X Isaiah

59:14 And judgment is turned away backward, and justice stands afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.

X Isaiah

59:15 Yes, truth fails; and he that departs from evil makes himself a prey: and YHWH saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment.

X Isaiah

59:16 And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation to him; and his righteousness, it sustained him.

X Isaiah

59:17 For he put on righteousness as a breast-plate, and a helmet of salvation upon his head; and he put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloke.

X Isaiah

59:18 According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay, fury to his adversaries, recompense to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompense.

X Isaiah

59:19 So shall they fear the name of YHWH from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of YHWH will lift up a standard against him.

X Isaiah

59:20 And the Redeemer will come to Zion, and to them that turn from transgression in Jacob, says YHWH.

X Isaiah

59:21 As for me, this is my covenant with them, says YHWH; My spirit that is upon you, and my words which I have put in your mouth, shall not depart out of your mouth, nor out of the mouth of your seed, nor out of the mouth of your seed's seed, says YHWH, from now on and forever.

X Isaiah

60:1 Arise, shine; for your light is come, and the glory of YHWH is risen upon you.

X Isaiah

60:2 For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but YHWH will arise upon you, and his glory will be seen upon you.

X Isaiah

60:3 And the Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.

X Isaiah

60:4 Lift up your eyes around, and see: all they assemble themselves, they come to you: your sons shall come from far, and your daughters shall be nursed at your side.

X Isaiah

60:5 Then you shall see, and flow together, and your heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be converted to you, the forces of the Gentiles shall come to you.

X Isaiah

60:6 The multitude of camels shall cover you, the dromedaries of Midian and Ephah; all they from Sheba shall come: they shall bring gold and incense; and they shall show forth the praises of YHWH.

X Isaiah

60:7 All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered to you, the rams of Nebaioth shall minister to you: they shall come up with acceptance on my altar, and I will glorify the house of my glory.

X Isaiah

60:8 Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as doves to their windows?

X Isaiah

60:9 Surely the islands shall wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring your sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, to the name of YHWH your Elohim, and to the Holy One of Israel, because he has glorified you.

X Isaiah

60:10 And the sons of strangers shall build up your walls, and their kings shall minister to you: for in my wrath I smote you, but in my favor have I had mercy on you.

X Isaiah

60:11 Therefore your gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring to you the forces of the Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought.

X Isaiah

60:12 For the nation and kingdom that will not serve you shall perish; yes, those nations shall be utterly wasted.

X Isaiah

60:13 The glory of Lebanon shall come to you, the fir-tree, the pine-tree, and the box together, to beautify the place of my sanctuary; and I will make the place of my feet glorious.

X Isaiah

60:14 The sons also of them that afflicted you shall come bending to you; and all they that despised you shall bow themselves down at the soles of your feet; and they shall call you, The city of YHWH, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.

X Isaiah

60:15 Whereas you have been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through you, I will make you an eternal excellence, a joy of many generations.

X Isaiah

60:16 You shall also suck the milk of the Gentiles, and shall suck the breast of kings: and you shall know that I YHWH am your Saviour and your Redeemer, the mighty one of Jacob.

X Isaiah

60:17 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 your officers peace, and your exactors righteousness.

X Isaiah

60:18 Violence shall no more be heard in your land, wasting nor destruction within your borders; but you shall call your walls Salvation, and your gates Praise.

X Isaiah

60:19 The sun shall be no more your light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light to you: but YHWH will be to you an everlasting light, and your Elohim your glory.

X Isaiah

60:20 Your sun shall no more go down; neither shall your moon withdraw itself: for YHWH will be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning shall be ended.

X Isaiah

60:21 Your people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land forever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified.

X Isaiah

60:22 A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I YHWH will hasten it in its time.

X Isaiah

61:1 The Spirit of the Sovereign YHWH is upon me; because YHWH has anointed me to publish good tidings to the meek; he has sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim freedom to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

X Isaiah

61:2 To proclaim the acceptable year of YHWH, and the day of vengeance of our Elohim; to comfort all that mourn;

X Isaiah

61:3 To appoint to them that mourn in Zion, to give to them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of YHWH, that he may be glorified.

X Isaiah

61:4 And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.

X Isaiah

61:5 And strangers shall stand and feed your* flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your* plowmen and your* vine-dressers.

X Isaiah

61:6 But you* shall be named the Priests of YHWH: men shall call you* the Ministers of our Elohim: you* shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall you* boast yourselves*.

X Isaiah

61:7 For your* shame you* shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be to them.

X Isaiah

61:8 For I YHWH love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt-offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.

X Isaiah

61:9 And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which YHWH has blessed.

X Isaiah

61:10 I will greatly rejoice in YHWH, my soul shall be joyful in my Elohim; for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation, he has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.

X Isaiah

61:11 For as the earth brings forth her bud, and as the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Sovereign YHWH will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.

X Isaiah

62:1 For Zion's sake I will not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until its righteousness shall go forth as brightness, and its salvation as a lamp that burns.

X Isaiah

62:2 And the Gentiles shall see your righteousness, and all kings your glory: and you shall be called by a new name, which the mouth of YHWH shall name.

X Isaiah

62:3 You shall also be a crown of glory in the hand of YHWH, and a royal diadem in the hand of your Elohim.

X Isaiah

62:4 You shall no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall your land any more be termed Desolate: but you shall be called Hephzi-bah, and your land Beulah: for YHWH delights in you, and your land shall be married.

X Isaiah

62:5 For as a young man marries a virgin, so shall your sons marry you: and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so will your Elohim rejoice over you.

X Isaiah

62:6 I have set watchmen upon your walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: you* that make mention of YHWH, keep not silence,

X Isaiah

62:7 And give him no rest, till he shall establish, and till he shall make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.

X Isaiah

62:8 YHWH has sworn by his right hand, and by the arm of his strength, Surely I will no more give your grain to be food for your enemies; and the sons of the stranger shall not drink your wine, for which you have labored:

X Isaiah

62:9 But they that have gathered it shall eat it, and praise YHWH; and they that have collected it shall drink it in the courts of my holiness.

X Isaiah

62:10 Go through, go through the gates; prepare you* the way of the people; cast up, cast up the highway; gather out the stones; lift up a standard for the people.

X Isaiah

62:11 Behold, YHWH has proclaimed to the end of the world, Say you* to the daughter of Zion, Behold, your salvation comes; Behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.

X Isaiah

62:12 And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of YHWH: and you shall be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken.

X Isaiah

63:1 Who is this that comes from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, traveling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save.

X Isaiah

63:2 Why are you red in your apparel, and your garments like him that treads in the wine-vat.

X Isaiah

63:3 I have trodden the wine-press alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in my anger, and trample them in my fury, and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment.

X Isaiah

63:4 For the day of vengeance is in my heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.

X Isaiah

63:5 And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore my own arm brought salvation to me; and my fury, it upheld me.

X Isaiah

63:6 And I will tread down the people in my anger, and make them drunk in my fury, and I will bring down their strength to the earth.

X Isaiah

63:7 I will mention the loving-kindnesses of YHWH, and the praises of YHWH, according to all that YHWH has bestowed on us, and the great goodness towards the house of Israel, which he has bestowed on them according to his mercies, and according to the multitude of his loving-kindnesses.

X Isaiah

63:8 For he said, Surely they are my people, children that will not lie: so he was their Saviour.

X Isaiah

63:9 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 bore them, and carried them all the days of old.

X Isaiah

63:10 But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them.

X Isaiah

63:11 Then he remembered the days of old, Moses, and his people, saying, Where is he that brought them out of the sea with the shepherd of his flock? where is he that put his holy Spirit within him?

X Isaiah

63:12 That led them by the right hand of Moses with his glorious arm, dividing the water before them, to make himself an everlasting name?

X Isaiah

63:13 That led them through the deep, as a horse in the wilderness, that they should not stumble?

X Isaiah

63:14 As a beast goes down in the valley, the Spirit of YHWH caused him to rest: so did you lead your people, to make yourself a glorious name.

X Isaiah

63:15 Look down from heaven, and behold from the habitation of your holiness and of your glory: where is your zeal and your strength, the sounding of your bowels and of your mercies towards me? are they restrained?

X Isaiah

63:16 Doubtless you are our father, though Abraham be ignorant of us, and Israel acknowledge us not: you, O YHWH, are our father, our Redeemer; your name is from everlasting.

X Isaiah

63:17 O YHWH, why have you made us to err from your ways, and hardened our heart from your fear? Return for your servants' sake, the tribes of your inheritance.

X Isaiah

63:18 The people of your holiness have possessed it but a little while: our adversaries have trodden down your sanctuary.

X Isaiah

63:19 We are yours: you never did bear rule over them; they were not called by your name.

X Isaiah

64:1 Oh that you would rend the heavens, that you would come down, that the mountains might flow down at your presence,

X Isaiah

64:2 As when the melting fire burns, the fire causes the waters to boil, to make your name known to your adversaries, that the nations may tremble at your presence!

X Isaiah

64:3 When you did terrible things which we looked not for, you came down, the mountains flowed down at your presence.

X Isaiah

64:4 For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither has the eye seen, O Elohim, besides you, what he has prepared for him that waits for him.

X Isaiah

64:5 You meetest him that rejoices, and works righteousness, those that remember you in your ways: behold, you are angry; for we have sinned: in those is continuance, and we shall be saved.

X Isaiah

64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

X Isaiah

64:7 And there is none that calls upon your name, that stirs up himself to take hold of you: for you have hid your face from us, and have consumed us, because of our iniquities.

X Isaiah

64:8 But now, O YHWH, you are our father; we are the clay, and you our potter; and we all are the work of your hand.

X Isaiah

64:9 Be not very angry, O YHWH, neither remember iniquity forever: behold, see, we beseech you, we are all your people.

X Isaiah

64:10 Your holy cities are a wilderness, Zion is a wilderness, Jerusalem a desolation.

X Isaiah

64:11 Our holy and our beautiful house, where our fathers praised you, is burned with fire: and all our pleasant things are laid waste.

X Isaiah

64:12 Will you refrain yourself for these things, O YHWH? will you hold your peace, and grievously afflict us?

X Isaiah

65:1 I am sought by them that asked not for me; I am found by them that sought me not: I said, Behold me, behold me, to a nation that was not called by my name.

X Isaiah

65:2 I have spread out my hands all the day to a rebellious people, which walks in a way that is not good, after their own thoughts;

X Isaiah

65:3 A people that provokes me to anger continually to my face; that sacrifices in gardens, and burns incense upon altars of brick;

X Isaiah

65:4 Which remain among the graves, and lodge in the monuments, which eat swine's flesh, and broth of abominable things is in their vessels;

X Isaiah

65:5 Which say, Stand by yourself, come not near to me; for I am holier than you. These are a smoke in my nose, a fire that burns all the day.

X Isaiah

65:6 Behold, it is written before me: I will not keep silence, but will recompense, even recompense into their bosom,

X Isaiah

65:7 Your* iniquities, and the iniquities of your* fathers together, says YHWH, who have burned incense upon the mountains, and blasphemed me upon the hills: therefore will I measure their former work into their bosom.

X Isaiah

65:8 Thus says YHWH, As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one says, Destroy it not; for a blessing is in it: so will I do for my servants' sake, that I may not destroy them all.

X Isaiah

65:9 And I will bring forth a seed out of Jacob, and out of Judah an inheritor of my mountains: and my elect shall inherit it, and my servants shall dwell there.

X Isaiah

65:10 And Sharon shall be a fold of flocks, and the valley of Achor a place for the herds to lie down in, for my people that have sought me.

X Isaiah

65:11 But you* are they that forsake YHWH, that forget my holy mountain, that prepare a table for that troop, and that furnish the drink-offering to that number.

X Isaiah

65:12 Therefore will I number you* to the sword, and you* shall all bow down to the slaughter: because when I called, you* did not answer; when I spoke, you* did not hear; but did evil before my eyes, and did choose that in which I delighted not.

X Isaiah

65:13 Therefore thus says the Sovereign YHWH, Behold, my servants shall eat, but you* shall be hungry: behold, my servants shall drink, but you* shall be thirsty: behold, my servants shall rejoice, but you* shall be ashamed:

X Isaiah

65:14 Behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart, but you* shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for vexation of spirit.

X Isaiah

65:15 And you* shall leave your* name for a curse to my chosen: for the Sovereign YHWH will slay you, and call his servants by another name:

X Isaiah

65:16 That he who blesses himself in the earth shall bless himself in the Elohim of truth; and he that swears in the earth shall swear by the Elohim of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are hid from my eyes.

X Isaiah

65:17 For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.

X Isaiah

65:18 But be you* glad and rejoice forever in that which I create: for behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy.

X Isaiah

65:19 And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.

X Isaiah

65:20 There shall be no more that place an infant of days, nor an old man that has not filled his days: for the child shall die a hundred years old: but the sinner being a hundred years old shall be accursed.

X Isaiah

65:21 And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them.

X Isaiah

65:22 They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and my elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands.

X Isaiah

65:23 They shall not labor in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of YHWH, and their offspring with them.

X Isaiah

65:24 And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.

X Isaiah

65:25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpents' food. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, says YHWH.

X Isaiah

66:1 Thus says YHWH, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that you* build to me? and where is the place of my rest?

X Isaiah

66:2 For all these things has my hand made, and all these things have been, says YHWH: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembles at my word.

X Isaiah

66:3 He that kills an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrifices a lamb, as if he cut off a dog's neck; he that offers an oblation, as if he offered swine's blood; he that burns incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yes, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delights in their abominations.

X Isaiah

66:4 I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spoke, they did not hear: but they did evil before my eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.

X Isaiah

66:5 Hear the word of YHWH, you* that tremble at his word; Your* brethren that hated you*, that cast you* out for my name's sake, said, Let YHWH be glorified: but he shall appear to your* joy, and they shall be ashamed.

X Isaiah

66:6 A voice of noise from the city, a voice from the temple, a voice of YHWH that rendereth recompense to his enemies.

X Isaiah

66:7 Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a male child.

X Isaiah

66:8 Who has heard such a thing? who has seen such things? shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.

X Isaiah

66:9 Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring forth? says YHWH: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb? says your Elohim.

X Isaiah

66:10 Rejoice you* with Jerusalem, and be glad with her, all you* that love her: rejoice for joy with her, all you* that mourn for her:

X Isaiah

66:11 That you* may suck, and be satisfied with the breasts of her consolations; that you* may draw milk, and be delighted with the abundance of her glory.

X Isaiah

66:12 For thus says YHWH, Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream: then shall you* suck, you* shall be borne upon her sides, and be dandled upon her knees.

X Isaiah

66:13 As one whom his mother comforts, so will I comfort you*; and you* shall be comforted in Jerusalem.

X Isaiah

66:14 And when you* see this, your* heart shall rejoice, and your* bones shall flourish like an herb: and the hand of YHWH shall be known towards his servants, and his indignation towards his enemies.

X Isaiah

66:15 For behold, YHWH will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.

X Isaiah

66:16 For by fire and by his sword will YHWH plead with all flesh: and the slain of YHWH shall be many.

X Isaiah

66:17 They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, says YHWH.

X Isaiah

66:18 For I know their works and their thoughts: it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory.

X Isaiah

66:19 And I will set a sign among them, and I will send those that escape of them to the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tubal, and Javan, to the islands afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles.

X Isaiah

66:20 And they shall bring all your* brethren for an offering to YHWH out of all nations upon horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, says YHWH, as the children of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of YHWH.

X Isaiah

66:21 And I will also take of them for priests and for Levites, says YHWH.

X Isaiah

66:22 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, says YHWH, so shall your* seed and your* name remain.

X Isaiah

66:23 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, says YHWH.

X Isaiah

66:24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcasses 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 to all flesh.
