    The Book of Isaiah

    Chapter 1

    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.

    Isaiah 1:2 Hear, O heavens, and listen,O earth; for Yahweh has spoken: “I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against Me.

    Isaiah 1:3 The ox knows his owner, and the donkey his master’s crib; but Israel does not know, My people do not consider.”

    Isaiah 1:4 Woe sinful nation, a people loaded with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children who deal corruptly! They have forsaken Yahweh. They have despised the Holy One of Israel. They are estranged and backward.

    Isaiah 1:5 Why should you be beaten more, that you revolt more and more? The whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.

    Isaiah 1:6 From the sole of the foot even to the head there is no health in it: wounds, welts, and open sores. They haven’t been closed, bandaged, nor soothed with oil.

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

    Isaiah 1:8 The daughter of Zion is left like a shelter in a vineyard, like a hut in a field of melons, like a besieged city.

    Isaiah 1:9 Unless Yahweh of Armies had left to us a very small remnant, we would have been as Sodom; we would have been like Gomorrah.

    Isaiah 1:10 Hear the word of Yahweh, you rulers of Sodom! Listen to the Law of our God, you people of Gomorrah!

    Isaiah 1:11 “What are the multitude of your sacrifices to Me?,” Says Yahweh. “I have had enough of the ascension offerings of rams, and the fat of fed animals. I do not delight in the blood of bulls, or of lambs, or of male goats.

    Isaiah 1:12 When you come to appear before Me, who has required this at your hand, to trample My courts?

    Isaiah 1:13 Bring no longer vain offerings. Incense is an abomination to me; New Moons, Sabbaths, and invitations to your dress rehearsals: I am not able to bear with your meaningless assemblies.

    Isaiah 1:14 My soul hates your New Moons and your appointed feasts. They are a burden to Me. I am weary of putting up with them.

    Isaiah 1:15 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.

    Isaiah 1:16 Wash yourselves, make yourself clean. Put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes. Stop doing evil.

    Isaiah 1:17 Learn to do well. Seek justice. Relieve the oppressed. Defend the fatherless. Plead for the widow.”

    Isaiah 1:18 “Come now, and let us reason together,” says Yahweh: “Though your sins be as scarlet, they will be as white as snow. Though they be red like crimson, they will be as wool.

    Isaiah 1:19 If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good of the land;

    Isaiah 1:20 but if you refuse and rebel, you will be devoured with the sword; for the mouth of Yahweh has spoken it.”

    Isaiah 1:21 How the faithful city has become a prostitute! She was full of justice; righteousness lodged in her, but now murderers.

    Isaiah 1:22 Your silver has become dross, your wine mixed with water.

    Isaiah 1:23 Your leaders are rebellious, and companions of thieves. Everyone loves bribes and follows after rewards. They do not defend the fatherless, neither does the cause of the widow come to them.

    Isaiah 1:24 Therefore the Lord Yahweh of Armies, the Mighty One of Israel, says: “alas, I will get relief from My adversaries, and avenge Myself on My enemies;

    Isaiah 1:25 and I will turn My hand on you, thoroughly purge away your dross, and will take away all your alloy.

    Isaiah 1:26 I will restore your judges as at the first, and your counselors as at the beginning. Afterward you will be called ‘the city of righteousness, a faithful city.’

    Isaiah 1:27 Zion will be redeemed with justice and her converts with righteousness.

    Isaiah 1:28 But the destruction of transgressors and sinners will be together and those who forsake Yahweh will be consumed.

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

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

    Isaiah 1:31 The strong will be like tinder, and his work like a spark. They will both burn together, and no one will quench them.”

    Chapter 2

    Isaiah 2:1 This is what Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.

    Isaiah 2:2 It will happen in the latter days that the mountain of Yahweh’s house will be established on the top of the mountains and will be raised above the hills; and all nations will flow to it.

    Isaiah 2:3 Many peoples will go and say, “come, let us go up to the mountain of Yahweh, to the house of the God of Jacob; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths.” For out of Zion the Law will go forth and the word of Yahweh from Jerusalem.

    Isaiah 2:4 He will judge between the nations and will decide concerning many peoples; and they will beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, neither will they learn war any longer.

    Isaiah 2:5 House of Jacob, come, and let us walk in the light of Yahweh.

    Isaiah 2:6 For You have forsaken Your people, the house of Jacob, because they are filled from the east, with those who practice divination like the Philistines, and they clasp hands with the children of foreigners.

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

    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.

    Isaiah 2:9 Man is brought low, and mankind is humbled; therefore, do not forgive them.

    Isaiah 2:10 Enter into the rock, and hide in the dust, from before the terror of Yahweh, and from the glory of His majesty.

    Isaiah 2:11 The lofty looks of man will be brought low, the haughtiness of men will be bowed down, and Yahweh alone will be exalted in that day.

    Isaiah 2:12 For there will be a day of Yahweh of Armies for all that is proud and haughty, and for all that is lifted up; and it will be brought low:

    Isaiah 2:13 For all the cedars of Lebanon, that are high and lifted up, for all the oaks of Bashan,

    Isaiah 2:14 For all the high mountains, for all the hills that are lifted up,

    Isaiah 2:15 For every lofty tower, for every fortified wall,

    Isaiah 2:16 For all the ships of Tarshish, and for all pleasant imagery.

    Isaiah 2:17 The loftiness of man will be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men will be brought low; and Yahweh alone will be exalted in that day.

    Isaiah 2:18 The idols will utterly pass away.

    Isaiah 2:19 Men will go into the caves of the rocks, and into the holes of the ground, from before the terror of Yahweh, and from the glory of His majesty, when he arises to shake the land mightily.

    Isaiah 2:20 In that day, men will cast away their idols of silver, and their idols of gold, which have been made for themselves to worship, to the moles and to the bats;

    Isaiah 2:21 To go into the caverns of the rocks, and into the clefts of the ragged rocks, from before the terror of Yahweh, and from the glory of His majesty, when he arises to shake the land mightily.

    Isaiah 2:22 Stop trusting in man, whose breath is in his nostrils; for of what account is he?

    Chapter 3

    Isaiah 3:1 For, behold, the Lord, Yahweh of Armies, takes away from Jerusalem and from Judah supply and support, the whole supply of bread, and the whole supply of water;

    Isaiah 3:2 the mighty man, the man of war, the judge, the prophet, the diviner, the elder,

    Isaiah 3:3 the leader of fifty, the honorable man, the counselor, the skilled craftsman, and the clever enchanter.

    Isaiah 3:4 I will give boys to be their leaders, and fickle ones will rule over them.

    Isaiah 3:5 The people will be oppressed, everyone by another, and everyone by his neighbor. The child will behave himself proudly against the old man, and the base against the honorable.

    Isaiah 3:6 Indeed a man will take hold of his brother in the house of his father, saying, “you have clothing, you be our ruler, and let this ruin be under your hand.”

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

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

    Isaiah 3:9 The look of their faces testifies against them. They parade their sin like Sodom. They do not hide it. Woe to their soul! For they have brought disaster upon themselves.

    Isaiah 3:10 Tell the righteous “good!” For they will eat the fruit of their deeds.

    Isaiah 3:11 Woe to the wicked! Disaster is upon them; for the deeds of his hands will be paid back to him.

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

    Isaiah 3:13 Yahweh stands up to contend and stands to judge the peoples.

    Isaiah 3:14 Yahweh will enter into judgment with the elders of His people, and their leaders: “it is you who have eaten up the vineyard. The spoil of the poor is in your houses.

    Isaiah 3:15 What do you mean that you crush My people, and grind the face of the poor?” Says the Lord, Yahweh of Armies.

    Isaiah 3:16 Moreover Yahweh said, “because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with outstretched necks and flirting eyes, walking to trip as they go, jingling ornaments on their feet;

    Isaiah 3:17 therefore the Lord brings sores on the crown of the head of the women of Zion, and Yahweh will make their scalps bald.”

    Isaiah 3:18 In that day the Lord will take away the beauty of their anklets, the headbands, the crescent necklaces,

    Isaiah 3:19 the earrings, the bracelets, the veils,

    Isaiah 3:20 the headdresses, the ankle chains, the sashes, the perfume bottles, the charms,

    Isaiah 3:21 the signet rings, the nose rings,

    Isaiah 3:22 the fine robes, the capes, the cloaks, the purses,

    Isaiah 3:23 the hand mirrors, the fine linen garments, the tiaras, and the shawls.

    Isaiah 3:24 It will happen that instead of sweet spices, there will be rottenness; instead of a belt, a rope; instead of well-styled hair, baldness; instead of a robe, a wearing of sackcloth; and branding instead of beauty.

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

    Isaiah 3:26 Her gates will lament and mourn; and she will be desolate and sit on the ground.

    Chapter 4

    Isaiah 4:1 Seven women will take hold of one man in that day, saying, “we will eat our own bread, and wear our own clothing: only let us be called by your name. Take away our reproach.”

    Isaiah 4:2 In that day, Yahweh’s branch will be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the land will be the beauty and glory of the survivors of Israel.

    Isaiah 4:3 It will happen, that he who is left in Zion, and he who remains in Jerusalem, will be called holy, even everyone who is written among the living in Jerusalem;

    Isaiah 4:4 when the Lord washes away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and purged the blood of Jerusalem from its midst, by the spirit of justice and by the consuming fire of the spirit.

    Isaiah 4:5 Yahweh will create over the whole habitation of Mount Zion, and over her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory will be a canopy.

    Isaiah 4:6 There will be a pavilion for a shade in the daytime from the heat, and for a refuge and for a shelter from storm and from rain.

    Chapter 5

    Isaiah 5:1 Let me sing for My well Beloved a song of My Beloved about His vineyard. My Beloved had a vineyard on a very fruitful hill.

    Isaiah 5:2 He dug it up, gathered out its stones, planted it with the choicest vine, built a tower in its midst, and also cut out a winepress in it. He looked for it to yield grapes, but it yielded wild grapes.

    Isaiah 5:3 “Now, inhabitants of Jerusalem and men of Judah, please judge between Me and My vineyard.

    Isaiah 5:4 What could have been done more to My vineyard that I have not done in it? Why, when I looked for it to yield grapes, did it yield wild grapes?

    Isaiah 5:5 Now I will tell you what I will do to My vineyard. I will take away its hedge, and it will be eaten up. I will break down its wall of it, and it will be trampled down.

    Isaiah 5:6 I will lay it a wasteland. It will not be pruned nor hoed, but it will grow briers and thorns. I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain on it.”

    Isaiah 5:7 For the vineyard of Yahweh of Armies is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah His pleasant plant: and He looked for justice, but behold, oppression; for righteousness, but, behold, a cry of distress.

    Isaiah 5:8 Woe to those who join house to house, who lay field to field, until there is no room, and you are made to dwell alone in the midst of the land!

    Isaiah 5:9 In My ears, Yahweh of Armies says: “surely many houses will be desolate, even great, and beautiful, unoccupied.

    Isaiah 5:10 For ten acres of vineyard will yield one bath, and a homer of seed will yield an ephah.”

    Isaiah 5:11 Woe to those who rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink, who stay late into the night, until wine inflames them!

    Isaiah 5:12 The harp, lyre, tambourine, and flute, with wine, are at their feasts; but they do not respect the work of Yahweh, neither have they considered the operation of His hands.

    Isaiah 5:13 Therefore My people go into captivity for lack of knowledge. Their honorable men are famished, and their multitudes are parched with thirst.

    Isaiah 5:14 Therefore Sheol has enlarged its desire and opened its mouth without measure; and their glory, their multitude, their pomp, and he who rejoices among them, descend into it.

    Isaiah 5:15 So man is brought low, mankind is humbled, and the eyes of the arrogant ones are humbled;

    Isaiah 5:16 but Yahweh of Armies is exalted in justice, and God the Holy One is sanctified in righteousness.

    Isaiah 5:17 Then the lambs will graze as in their pasture, and strangers will eat the ruins of the rich.

    Isaiah 5:18 Woe to those who draw iniquity with cords of falsehood, and wickedness as with cart rope;

    Isaiah 5:19 Who say, “let him make speed, let Him 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!”

    Isaiah 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

    Isaiah 5:21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

    Isaiah 5:22 Woe to those who are mighty to drink wine, and champions at mixing strong drink;

    Isaiah 5:23 who acquit the guilty for a bribe but deny justice for the innocent!

    Isaiah 5:24 Therefore as the tongue of fire devours the stubble, and as the dry grass sinks down in the flame, so their root will be as rottenness, and their blossom will go up as dust; because they have rejected the Law of Yahweh of Armies and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

    Isaiah 5:25 Therefore Yahweh’s anger burns against His people, and He has stretched out His hand against them, and has struck them. The mountains tremble, and their dead bodies are as refuse in the midst of the streets. For all this, His anger is not turned away, but His hand is still stretched out.

    Isaiah 5:26 He will lift up a banner to the nations from far, and he will whistle for them out from the farthest parts of the earth. Behold, they will come speedily and swiftly.

    Isaiah 5:27 None will be weary nor stumble among them; none will slumber nor sleep; neither will the belt of their waist be untied, nor the latchet of their shoes be broken:

    Isaiah 5:28 whose arrows are sharp, and all their bows bent. Their horses’ hoofs will be like flint, and their wheels like a whirlwind.

    Isaiah 5:29 Their roaring will be like a lioness. They will roar like young lions. Yes, they will roar, and seize their prey and carry it off, and there will be no one to deliver.

    Isaiah 5:30 They will roar against them in that day like the roaring of the sea. If one looks to the land behold, darkness and distress. The light is darkened in its clouds.

    Chapter 6

    Isaiah 6:1 In the year that king Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up; and His train filled the temple.

    Isaiah 6:2 Above him stood the seraphim. Each one had six wings. With two he covered his face. With two he covered his feet. With two he flew.

    Isaiah 6:3 One called to another, and said, “holy, holy, holy, is Yahweh of Armies! The whole earth is full of his glory!”

    Isaiah 6:4 The foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of Him who called, and the house was filled with smoke.

    Isaiah 6:5 Then I said, “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, Yahweh of Armies!”

    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.

    Isaiah 6:7 He touched my mouth with it, and said, “behold, this has touched your lips; and your iniquity is taken away, and your sin forgiven.”

    Isaiah 6:8 I heard the Lord’s voice, saying, “whom will I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “here I am. Send me!”

    Isaiah 6:9 He said, “go, and tell this people, ‘you hear indeed, but do not understand; and you see indeed, but do not perceive.’

    Isaiah 6:10 Make the heart of this people fat. Make their ears heavy and shut their eyes; unless they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and turn again, and be healed.”

    Isaiah 6:11 Then I said, “Lord, how long?” He answered, “until cities are waste without inhabitant, and houses without man, and the land becomes utterly waste,

    Isaiah 6:12 and Yahweh has removed men far away, and the desolate places are many in the midst of the land.

    Isaiah 6:13 If there is a tenth left in it that also will in turn be consumed: as a terebinth, and as an oak, whose stump remains when they are cut down; so the holy seed is its stump.”

    Chapter 7

    Isaiah 7:1 It happened 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 to Jerusalem to war against it, but could not prevail against it.

    Isaiah 7:2 It was told the house of David, saying, “Syria is allied with Ephraim.” His heart trembled, and the heart of his people as the trees of the forest tremble with the wind.

    Isaiah 7:3 Then Yahweh said to Isaiah, “go out now to meet Ahaz, you, and Shearjashub your son, at the end of the conduit of the upper pool, on the pathway to the fuller’s field.

    Isaiah 7:4 Tell him, ‘be careful, and keep calm. Do not be afraid, neither let your heart be faint because of these two tails of smoking torches, for the fierce anger of Rezin and Syria, and of the son of Remaliah.

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

    Isaiah 7:6 “let’s go up against Judah, and tear it apart, and let’s divide it among ourselves, and set up a king in its midst, even the son of Tabeel.”

    Isaiah 7:7 This is what the Lord Yahweh says: “it will not stand, neither will it happen.”

    Isaiah 7:8 For the head of Syria is Damascus, and the head of Damascus is Rezin; and within sixty-five years Ephraim will be broken in pieces, so that it will not be a people;

    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 will not be established.’”

    Isaiah 7:10 Yahweh spoke again to Ahaz, saying,

    Isaiah 7:11 “ask a sign of Yahweh your God; ask it either in the depth, or in the height above.”

    Isaiah 7:12 But Ahaz said, “I will not ask, neither will I tempt Yahweh.”

    Isaiah 7:13 He said, “listen now, house of David. Is it not enough for you to try the patience of men, that you will try the patience of my God also?

    Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin will conceive, and bear a son, and will call His name Immanuel.

    Isaiah 7:15 He will eat butter and honey when He knows to refuse the evil and choose the good.

    Isaiah 7:16 For before the child knows to refuse the evil, and choose the good, the land whose two kings you abhor will be forsaken.

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

    Isaiah 7:18 It will happen in that day that Yahweh will whistle 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.

    Isaiah 7:19 They will come, and will all rest in the desolate valleys, in the clefts of the rocks, on all thorn hedges, and on all pastures.

    Isaiah 7:20 In that day the Lord will shave with a razor that is hired in the parts beyond the River, even with the king of Assyria, the head and the hair of the legs; and it will also consume the beard.

    Isaiah 7:21 It will happen in that day that a man will keep alive a young cow, and two sheep;

    Isaiah 7:22 and it will happen, that because of the abundance of milk which they will give he will eat butter: for everyone will eat butter and honey that is left in the midst of the land.

    Isaiah 7:23 It will happen in that day that every place where there were a thousand vines, at a thousand silver shekels, will become briers and thorns.

    Isaiah 7:24 People will go there with arrows and with bow, because all the land will be briers and thorns.

    Isaiah 7:25 All the hills that were cultivated with the hoe, you will not come there for fear of briers and thorns; but it will be for the sending forth of oxen, and for the treading of sheep.”

    Chapter 8

    Isaiah 8:1 Yahweh said to me, “take a large tablet, and write on it with a man’s pen, ‘for Maher-shalal-hash-baz;’

    Isaiah 8:2 and I will take for Myself faithful witnesses to testify: Uriah the priest, and Zechariah the son of Jeberechiah.”

    Isaiah 8:3 I went to the prophetess, and she conceived, and bore a son. Then Yahweh said to me, “call his name ‘Maher-shalal- hash-baz.’

    Isaiah 8:4 For before the child knows how to say, ‘my father,’ and, ‘my mother,’ the riches of Damascus and the spoil of Samaria will be carried away by the king of Assyria.”

    Isaiah 8:5 Yahweh spoke to me yet again, saying,

    Isaiah 8:6 “because this people have refused the waters of Shiloah that go softly, and rejoice in Rezin and Remaliah’s son;

    Isaiah 8:7 now therefore, behold, the Lord brings upon them the mighty flood waters of the River: the king of Assyria and all his glory. It will come up over all its channels and go over all its banks.

    Isaiah 8:8 It will sweep onward into Judah. It will overflow and pass through; it will reach even to the neck; and the stretching out of its wings will fill the breadth of your land, Immanuel.

    Isaiah 8:9 Make an uproar you people and be broken in pieces! Listen, all you from far countries: dress for battle, and be shattered! Dress for battle and be shattered!

    Isaiah 8:10 Take counsel together, and it will be brought to nothing; speak the word, and it will not stand: for God is with us.”

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

    Isaiah 8:12 “Do not say, ‘a conspiracy!’ concerning all about which this people say, ‘a conspiracy!’ neither fear their threats, nor be terrorized.

    Isaiah 8:13 Yahweh of Armies is who you must respect as holy. He is the one you must fear. He is the one you must dread.

    Isaiah 8:14 He will be a sanctuary, but for both houses of Israel, he will be a trap and a snare for the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

    Isaiah 8:15 Many will stumble over it, fall be broken, be snared, and be captured.”

    Isaiah 8:16 Wrap up the testimony. Seal the Law among My disciples.

    Isaiah 8:17 I will wait for Yahweh, who hides His face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him.

    Isaiah 8:18 Behold, I and the children whom Yahweh has given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from Yahweh of Armies, who dwells in Mount Zion.

    Isaiah 8:19 When they tell you, “Consult with those who talk to the dead and with the wizards, who chirp and who mutter:” should not a people consult with their God? Should they consult the dead on behalf of the living?

    Isaiah 8:20 Turn to the Law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, surely there is no morning for them.

    Isaiah 8:21 They will pass through it, very distressed and hungry; and it will happen that when they are hungry, they will worry, and curse by their king and by their God. They will turn their faces upward,

    Isaiah 8:22 and look to the land, and see distress, darkness, and the gloom of anguish. They will be driven into thick darkness.

    Chapter 9

    Isaiah 9:1 But there will be no longer gloom for her who was in anguish. In the former time, he brought into contempt the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali; but in the latter time he has made it glorious, by the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the nations.

    Isaiah 9:2 The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light. Those who lived in the land of the shadow of death, on them the light has shined.

    Isaiah 9:3 You have multiplied the nation. You have increased their joy. They rejoice before you according to the joy in harvest, as men rejoice when they divide the spoil.

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

    Isaiah 9:5 For all the armor of the armed man in the noisy battle, and the garments rolled in blood, will be for burning, fuel for the fire.

    Isaiah 9:6 For to us a child is born. To us a son is given; and the government will be on His shoulders. His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Infinite Father, Prince of Peace.

    Isaiah 9:7 Of the increase of His government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David, and on His kingdom, to establish it, and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from that time on, even always. The zeal of Yahweh of Armies will perform this.

    Isaiah 9:8 The Lord sent a word into Jacob, and it falls on Israel.

    Isaiah 9:9 All the people will know, including Ephraim and the inhabitants of Samaria, who say in pride and in arrogance of heart,

    Isaiah 9:10 “the bricks have fallen, but we will build with cut stone. The sycamore fig trees have been cut down, but we will put cedars in their place.”

    Isaiah 9:11 Therefore Yahweh will set up on high against him the adversaries of Rezin, and will stir up his enemies,

    Isaiah 9:12 The Syrians in front, and the Philistines behind; and they will devour Israel with open mouth. For all this, His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Isaiah 9:13 Yet the people have not turned to Him who struck them, neither have they sought Yahweh of Armies.

    Isaiah 9:14 Therefore Yahweh will cut off from Israel head and tail, palm branch and reed, in one day.

    Isaiah 9:15 The elder and the honorable man is the head, and the prophet who teaches lies is the tail.

    Isaiah 9:16 For those who lead this people lead them astray; and those who are led by them are destroyed.

    Isaiah 9:17 Therefore the Lord will not rejoice over their young men, neither will He have compassion on their fatherless and widows; for everyone is profane and an evildoer, and every mouth speaks folly. For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Isaiah 9:18 For wickedness burns like a fire. It devours the briers and thorns; yes, it kindles in the thickets of the forest, and they roll upward in a column of smoke.

    Isaiah 9:19 Through the wrath of Yahweh of Armies, the land is burnt up; and the people are the fuel for the fire. No one spares his brother.

    Isaiah 9:20 One will devour on the right hand and be hungry; and he will eat on the left hand, and they will not be satisfied. Everyone will eat the flesh of his own arm

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

    Chapter 10

    Isaiah 10:1 Woe to those who decree unrighteous decrees, and to the writers who write oppressive decrees;

    Isaiah 10:2 to deprive the needy from justice, and to rob the poor among My people of their rights, that widows may be their spoil, and that they may make the fatherless their prey!

    Isaiah 10:3 What will you do in the day of visitation, and in the desolation which will come from afar? To whom will you flee for help? Where will you leave your wealth?

    Isaiah 10:4 They will only bow down under the prisoners and will fall under the slain. For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Isaiah 10:5 Alas Assyrian, the rod of My anger, the staff in whose hand is My indignation!

    Isaiah 10:6 I will send him against a profane nation, and against the people who anger Me will I give him a command to take the spoil and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets.

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

    Isaiah 10:8 For he says, “are not all of my leaders kings?

    Isaiah 10:9 Is Calno not like Carchemish? Is Hamath not like Arpad? Is Samaria not like Damascus?”

    Isaiah 10:10 As my hand has found the kingdoms of the idols, whose engraved images exceeded those of Jerusalem and of Samaria;

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

    Isaiah 10:12 Therefore it will happen that, when the Lord has performed His whole work on Mount Zion and on Jerusalem, I will punish the fruit of the willful proud heart of theking of Assyria, and the insolence of his haughty looks.

    Isaiah 10:13 For he has said, “by the strength of my hand I have done it, and by my wisdom; for I have understanding: and I have removed the boundaries of the peoples and have robbed their treasures. Like a valiant man I have brought down their rulers.

    Isaiah 10:14 My hand has found the riches of the peoples like a nest, and like one gathers eggs that are abandoned, have I gathered all the earth. There was no one who moved their wing, or that opened their mouth, or chirped.”

    Isaiah 10:15 Should an axe brag against him who chops with it? Should a saw exalt itself above him who saws with it? As if a rod should lift those who lift it up, or as if a staff should lift up someone who is not wood.

    Isaiah 10:16 Therefore the Lord, Yahweh of Armies, will send among his fat ones leanness; and under his glory a burning will be kindled like the burning of fire.

    Isaiah 10:17 The Light of Israel will be for a fire, and His Holy One for a flame; and it will burn a nd devour his thorns and his briers in one day.

    Isaiah 10:18 He will consume the glory of his forest, and of his fruitful field, both soul and body. It will be as when a sick person is emaciated.

    Isaiah 10:19 The remnant of the trees of his forest will be few, so that a child could write their number.

    Isaiah 10:20 It will come to pass in that day that the remnant of Israel and those who have escaped from the house of Jacob will no longer again lean on him who struck them, but will lean on Yahweh, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.

    Isaiah 10:21 A remnant will return, even the remnant of Jacob, to the mighty God.

    Isaiah 10:22 For though Your people, Israel, are like the sand of the sea, only a remnant of them will return. A destruction is determined, overflowing with righteousness.

    Isaiah 10:23 For the Lord, Yahweh of Armies, will make a full end, and that determined, in the midst of all the land.

    Isaiah 10:24 Therefore the Lord, Yahweh of Armies, says “My people who dwell in Zion, do not be afraid of the Assyrian, though he strikes you with the rod, and lift up his staff against you, as Egypt did.

    Isaiah 10:25 For yet a very little while, and the indignation against you will be accomplished, and My anger will be directed to his destruction.”

    Isaiah 10:26 Yahweh of Armies will stir up a scourge against him, as in the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb. His rod will be over the sea, and he will lift it up like he did against Egypt.

    Isaiah 10:27 It will happen in that day that his burden will depart from off your shoulder, and his yoke from off your neck and the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil.

    Isaiah 10:28 He has come to Aiath. He has passed through Migron. At Michmash he stores his baggage.

    Isaiah 10:29 They have gone over the pass. They have taken up their lodging at Geba. Ramah trembles. Gibeah of Saul has fled.

    Isaiah 10:30 Cry aloud with your voice, daughter of Gallim! Listen, Laishah! You poor Anathoth!

    Isaiah 10:31 Madmenah is a fugitive. The inhabitants of Gebim flee for safety.

    Isaiah 10:32 This very day he will halt at Nob. He shakes his hand at the mountain of the daughter of Zion, the hill of Jerusalem.

    Isaiah 10:33 Behold, the Lord, Yahweh of Armies, will lop the boughs with terror. The tall will be cut down, and the lofty will be brought low.

    Isaiah 10:34 He will cut down the thickets of the forest with iron, and Lebanon will fall by the Mighty One.

    Chapter 11

    Isaiah 11:1 A shoot will come out of the stock of Jesse, and a branch out of his roots will bear fruit.

    Isaiah 11:2 The Spirit of Yahweh will rest on him: the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of Yahweh.

    Isaiah 11:3 His delight will be in the fear of Yahweh. He will not judge by the sight of His eyes, neither decide by the hearing of His ears;

    Isaiah 11:4 but with righteousness He will judge the poor and decide with equity for the humble of the land. He will strike the land with the rod of His mouth; and with the breath of His lips, He will kill the wicked.

    Isaiah 11:5 Righteousness will be the belt of His waist, and faithfulness the belt of His waist.

    Isaiah 11:6 The wolf will live with the lamb, and the leopard will lie down with the young goat; the calf, the young lion, and the fattened calf together; and a little child will lead them.

    Isaiah 11:7 The cow and the bear will graze. Their young ones will lie down together. The lion will eat straw like the ox.

    Isaiah 11:8 The nursing child will play near a cobra’s hole, and the weaned child will put his hand on the viper’s den.

    Isaiah 11:9 They will not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain; for the land will be full of the knowledge of Yahweh, as the waters cover the sea.

    Isaiah 11:10 It will happen in that day that the nations will seek the root of Jesse, who stands as a banner of the peoples; and His resting place will be glorious.

    Isaiah 11:11 It will happen in that day that the Lord will set His hand again the second time to recover the remnant that is left of His people from Assyria, from Egypt, from Pathros, from Cush, from Elam, from Shinar, from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.

    Isaiah 11:12 He will set up a banner for the nations, and will assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the land.

    Isaiah 11:13 The envy also of Ephraim will depart, and those who persecute Judah will be cut off. Ephraim will not envy Judah, and Judah will not persecute Ephraim.

    Isaiah 11:14 They will fly down on the shoulders of the Philistines on the west. Together they will plunder the children of the east. They will extend their power over Edom and Moab, and the children of Ammon will obey them.

    Isaiah 11:15 Yahweh will utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea; and with His scorching wind He will wave His hand over the River, and will split it into seven streams, and cause men to march over in sandals.

    Isaiah 11:16 There will be a pathway for the remnant that is left of His people from Assyria, like there was for Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.

    Chapter 12

    Isaiah 12:1 In that day you will say, “I will give thanks to you, Yahweh; for though you were angry with me, Your anger has turned away and You comfort me.

    Isaiah 12:2 Behold, God is my salvation. I will trust, and will not be afraid; for Yah, Yahweh is my strength and song; and He has become my salvation.”

    Isaiah 12:3 Therefore with joy you will draw water out of the wells of salvation.

    Isaiah 12:4 In that day you will say, “give thanks to Yahweh! Call on His name. Declare His doings among the peoples. Proclaim that His name is exalted!

    Isaiah 12:5 Sing to Yahweh, for He has done excellent things! Let this be known in all the land!

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

    Chapter 13

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

    Isaiah 13:2 set up a banner on the bare mountain! Lift up your voice to them! Wave your hand that they may go into the gates of the nobles.

    Isaiah 13:3 I have commanded My holy ones; yes, I have called My mighty ones for My anger, those triumphal in My majesty.

    Isaiah 13:4 The noise of a multitude is in the mountains, as of a great people; the noise of an uproar of the kingdoms of the nations gathered together! Yahweh of Armies is mustering the army for the battle.

    Isaiah 13:5 They come from a far country, from the uttermost part of heaven, even Yahweh, and the weapons of His indignation, to destroy the whole land.

    Isaiah 13:6 Wail; for the day of Yahweh is at hand! It will come as destruction from the Almighty.

    Isaiah 13:7 Therefore all hands will be feeble, and everyone’s heart will melt.

    Isaiah 13:8 They will be dismayed. Pangs and sorrows will seize them. They will be in pain like a woman in labor. They will look in amazement one at another. Their faces will be faces of flame.

    Isaiah 13:9 Behold, the Day of Yahweh comes, cruel, with wrath and fierce anger; to make the land a desolation and to destroy its sinners out of it.

    Isaiah 13:10 For the stars of the heavens and its constellations will not give their light. The sun will be darkened in its going forth, and the moon will not cause its light to shine.

    Isaiah 13:11 I will punish the Babylonian world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity. I will cause the arrogance of the proud to cease and will humble the haughtiness of the terrible.

    Isaiah 13:12 I will make these people rarer than fine gold, even men like these than the pure gold of Ophir.

    Isaiah 13:13 Therefore I will make the heavens tremble, and the earth will be shaken out of its place in the wrath of Yahweh of Armies, and in the day of His fierce anger.

    Isaiah 13:14 It will happen that like a hunted gazelle, and like sheep that no one gathers, they will each turn to their own people, and will each flee to their own land.

    Isaiah 13:15 Everyone who is found will be thrust through. Everyone who is captured will fall by the sword.

    Isaiah 13:16 Their infants also will be dashed in pieces before their eyes. Their houses will be ransacked, and their wives raped.

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

    Isaiah 13:18 Their bows will dash the young men in pieces; and they will have no pity on the fruit of the womb. Their eyes will not spare children.

    Isaiah 13:19 Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldeans’ pride, will be like when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.

    Isaiah 13:20 It will never be inhabited, neither will it be lived in from generation to generation. The Arabian will not pitch a tent there, neither will shepherds make their flocks lie down there.

    Isaiah 13:21 But wild beasts of the desert will lie there, and their houses will be full of jackals. Ostriches will dwell there, and wild goats will frolic there.

    Isaiah 13:22 Wolves will cry in their castles, and jackals in the pleasant palaces. Her time is near to come, and her days will not be prolonged.

    Chapter 14

    Isaiah 14:1 For Yahweh will have compassion on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel, and set them in their own land. The foreigner will join himself with them, and they will unite with the house of Jacob.

    Isaiah 14:2 The peoples will take them and bring them to their place. The house of Israel will possess them in Yahweh’s land for servants and for handmaids. They will take as captives those whose captives they were and they will rule over their oppressors.

    Isaiah 14:3 It will happen in the day that Yahweh will give you rest from your sorrow, from your trouble, and from the hard service in which you were made to serve

    Isaiah 14:4 that you will take up this parable against the king of Babylon, and say, “how the oppressor has ceased! The golden city has ceased!”

    Isaiah 14:5 Yahweh has broken the staff of the wicked, the scepter of the rulers,

    Isaiah 14:6 who struck the peoples in wrath with a continual stroke, who ruled the nations in anger, with a persecution that none restrained.

    Isaiah 14:7 The whole land is at rest and is quiet. They break out into singing.

    Isaiah 14:8 Yes, the fir trees rejoice with you, with the cedars of Lebanon, saying, “since you were humbled, no lumberjack has come up against us.”

    Isaiah 14:9 Sheol from beneath has moved for you to meet you at your coming. It stirs up the dead for you, even all the rulers of the land. It has raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.

    Isaiah 14:10 They all will answer and ask you, “have you also become as weak as we are? Have you become like us?”

    Isaiah 14:11 Your pomp is brought down to Sheol with the sound of your stringed instruments. Maggots are spread out under you, and worms cover you.

    Isaiah 14:12 How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, son of the dawn! How you are cut down to the ground, who laid the nations low!

    Isaiah 14:13 You said in your heart, “I will ascend into heaven! I will exalt my throne above the stars of God! I will sit on the mountain of assembly, in the far north!

    Isaiah 14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds! I will make myself like the Most High!”

    Isaiah 14:15 Yet you will be brought down to Sheol, to the depths of the pit.

    Isaiah 14:16 Those who see you will stare at you. They will ponder you, saying, “is this the man who made the land to tremble, who shook kingdoms;

    Isaiah 14:17 who made the empire like a wilderness, and overthrew its cities; who did not release his prisoners to their home?”

    Isaiah 14:18 All the kings of the nations, sleep in glory, everyone in his own house.

    Isaiah 14:19 But you are cast away from your tomb like an abominable branch, clothed with the slain, who are thrust through with the sword, who go down to the stones of the pit; like a dead body trodden under foot.

    Isaiah 14:20 You will not join them in burial, because you have destroyed your land. You have killed your people. The seed of evildoers will not be named perpetually.

    Isaiah 14:21 Prepare for slaughter of his children because of the iniquity of their fathers, that they do not rise up and possess the earth, and fill the surface of the empire with cities.

    Isaiah 14:22 “I will rise up against them,” says Yahweh of Armies, “and cut off from Babylon name and remnant, and son and son’s son,” says Yahweh.

    Isaiah 14:23 “I will also make it a possession for the porcupine, and pools of water. I will sweep it with the broom of destruction,” says Yahweh of Armies.

    Isaiah 14:24 Yahweh of Armies has sworn, saying, “surely, as I have thought, so will it happen; and as I have purposed, so will it stand:

    Isaiah 14:25 that I will break the Assyrian in My land, and tread him under foot on My mountains. Then his yoke will leave them, and his burden leave their shoulders.

    Isaiah 14:26 This is the plan that is determined for the whole earth. This is the hand that is stretched out over all the nations.

    Isaiah 14:27 For Yahweh of Armies has planned, and who can stop it? His hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back?”

    Isaiah 14:28 This burden was in the year that king Ahaz died.

    Isaiah 14:29 Do not rejoice, O Philistia, all of you, because the rod that struck you is broken; for out of the serpent’s root an adder will emerge, and his fruit will be a fiery flying serpent.

    Isaiah 14:30 The firstborn of the poor will eat, and the needy will lie down in safety; and I will kill your root with famine, and your remnant will be killed.

    Isaiah 14:31 Howl, gate! Cry, city! You are melted away, Philistia, all of you; for smoke comes out of the north, and there is no straggler in his ranks.

    Isaiah 14:32 What will they answer the messengers of the nation? That Yahweh has founded Zion, and in her the afflicted of His people will take refuge.

    Chapter 15

    Isaiah 15:1 The burden of Moab: for in a night, Ar of Moab is laid waste, and brought to nothing; for in a night Kir of Moab is laid waste and brought to nothing.

    Isaiah 15:2 They have gone up to Bayith, and to Dibon, to the high places, to weep. Moab wails over Nebo and over Medeba. Baldness is on all of their heads. Every beard is cut off.

    Isaiah 15:3 In their streets, they clothe themselves in sackcloth. In their streets and on their housetops, everyone wails, weeping abundantly.

    Isaiah 15:4 Heshbon cries out with Elealeh. Their voice is heard even to Jahaz. Therefore, the armed men of Moab cry aloud. Their souls tremble within them.

    Isaiah 15:5 My heart cries out for Moab! Her nobles flee to Zoar, to Eglath Shelishiyah; for they go up by the ascent of Luhith with weeping; for in the way of Horonaim, they raise up a cry of destruction.

    Isaiah 15:6 For the waters of Nimrim will be desolate; for the grass has withered away, the tender grass fails, there is no green thing.

    Isaiah 15:7 Therefore they will carry away the abundance they have gotten, and that which they have stored up, over the brook of the willows.

    Isaiah 15:8 For the cry has gone around the borders of Moab; its wailing to Eglaim, and its wailing to Beer Elim.

    Isaiah 15:9 For the waters of Dimon are full of blood; for I will bring yet more on Dimon, a lion on those of Moab who escape, and on the remnant of the land.

    Chapter 16

    Isaiah 16:1 Send the lambs for the ruler of the land from Selah to the wilderness, to the mountain of the daughter of Zion.

    Isaiah 16:2 For it will be that as wandering birds, as a scattered nest, so will the daughters of Moab be at the fords of the Arnon.

    Isaiah 16:3 Give counsel! Execute justice! Make your shade like the night in the midst of the noonday! Hide the outcasts! Do not betray the fugitive!

    Isaiah 16:4 Let My outcasts dwell with you! As for Moab, be a hiding place for him from the face of the destroyer. For the extortioner is brought to nothing. Destruction ceases. The oppressors are consumed out of the land.

    Isaiah 16:5 A throne will be established in lovingkindness. One will sit on it in truth, in the tent of David, judging, seeking justice, and swift to do righteousness.

    Isaiah 16:6 We have heard of the pride of Moab, that he is very proud, even of his arrogance, his pride, and his wrath. His boastings are nothing.

    Isaiah 16:7 Therefore Moab will wail for Moab. Everyone will wail. You will mourn for the raisin cakes of Kir Hareseth, utterly stricken.

    Isaiah 16:8 For the fields of Heshbon languish with the vine of Sibmah. The lords of the nations have broken down its choice branches, which reached even to Jazer, which wandered into the wilderness. Its shoots were spread abroad. They passed over the sea.

    Isaiah 16:9 Therefore I will weep with the weeping of Jazer for the vine of Sibmah. I will water you with my tears, Heshbon, and Elealeh: for on your summer fruits and on your harvest the battle shout has fallen.

    Isaiah 16:10 Gladness is taken away and joy out of the fruitful field; and in the vineyards there will be no singing, neither joyful noise. Nobody will tread out wine in the presses. I have made the shouting stop.

    Isaiah 16:11 Therefore my heart sounds like a harp for Moab, and my inward parts for Kir Heres.

    Isaiah 16:12 It will happen that when Moab presents himself, when he wearies himself on the high place, and comes to his sanctuary to pray, that he will not prevail.

    Isaiah 16:13 This is the word that Yahweh spoke concerning Moab in time past.

    Isaiah 16:14 But now Yahweh has spoken, saying, “within three years, as a worker bound by contract would count them, the glory of Moab will be brought into contempt, with all his great multitude; and the remnant will be very small and feeble.”

    Chapter 17

    Isaiah 17:1 The burden of Damascus: “behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it will be a ruinous heap.

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

    Isaiah 17:3 The fortress will cease from Ephraim, and the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Syria. They will be as the glory of the children of Israel,” says Yahweh of Armies.

    Isaiah 17:4 “It will happen in that day that the glory of Jacob will be made thin, and the fatness of his flesh will become lean.

    Isaiah 17:5 It will be like when the harvester gathers the wheat, and his arm reaps the grain. Yes, it will be like when one gleans grain in the valley of Rephaim.

    Isaiah 17:6 Yet gleanings will be left there, like the shaking of an olive tree, two or three olives in the top of the uppermost bough, four or five in the outermost branches of a fruitful tree,” says Yahweh, the God of Israel.

    Isaiah 17:7 In that day, people will look to their Maker, and their eyes will have respect for the Holy One of Israel.

    Isaiah 17:8 They will not look to the altars, the work of their hands; neither will they respect that which their fingers have made, either the Asherim, or the incense altars.

    Isaiah 17:9 In that day, their strong cities will be like the forsaken places in the woods and on the mountain top, which were forsaken from before the children of Israel; and it will be a desolation.

    Isaiah 17:10 For you have forgotten the God of your salvation and have not remembered the Rock of your strength. Therefore, you plant pleasant plants, and set out foreign seedlings.

    Isaiah 17:11 In the day of your planting, you hedge it in. In the morning, you make your seed blossom, but the harvest flees away in the day of grief and of desperate sorrow.

    Isaiah 17:12 Alas, the uproar of many peoples, who roar like the roaring of the seas; and the rushing of nations, that rush like the rushing of mighty waters!

    Isaiah 17:13 The nations will rush like the rushing of many waters: but He will rebuke them, and they will flee far off, and will be chased like the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like the whirling dust before the storm.

    Isaiah 17:14 At evening, behold, terror! Before the morning, they are no longer. This is the portion of those who plunder us, and the lot of those who rob us.

    Chapter 18

    Isaiah 18:1 Alas, the land of the rustling of wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia;

    Isaiah 18:2 that sends ambassadors by the sea, even in vessels of papyrus on the waters, saying, “go, you swift messengers, to a nation tall and smooth, to a people awesome from their beginning onward, a nation that measures out and treads down, whose land the rivers divide!”

    Isaiah 18:3 All you inhabitants of the world, and you dwellers on the earth, when a banner is lifted up on the mountains, look! When the trumpet is blown, listen!

    Isaiah 18:4 For Yahweh said to me, “I will be still, and I will see in My dwelling place, like clear heat in sunshine, like a cloud of dew in the heat of harvest.”

    Isaiah 18:5 For before the harvest, when the blossom is over, and the flower becomes a ripening grape, He will cut off the sprigs with pruning hooks, and He will cut down and take away the spreading branches.

    Isaiah 18:6 They will be left together for the ravenous birds of the mountains, and for the beasts of the land. The ravenous birds will summer on them, and all the beasts of the land will winter on them.

    Isaiah 18:7 In that time, gifts with reverence will be brought to Yahweh of Armies from a people tall and smooth, even from a people awesome from their beginning onward, a nation that measures out and treads down, whose land the rivers divide, into the place of the name of Yahweh of Armies, Mount Zion.

    Chapter 19

    Isaiah 19:1 The burden of Egypt: “behold, Yahweh rides on a swift cloud, and comes to Egypt. The idols of Egypt will tremble at His presence; and the heart of Egypt will melt in its midst.

    Isaiah 19:2 I will stir up the Egyptians against the Egyptians, and they will fight everyone against his brother, and everyone against his neighbor, city against city, and kingdom against kingdom.

    Isaiah 19:3 The spirit of Egypt will fail in its midst. I will destroy its counsel. They will seek the idols, the charmers, those who talk to the dead, and the wizards.

    Isaiah 19:4 I will give over the Egyptians into the hand of a cruel lord. A fierce king will rule over them,” says the Lord, Yahweh of Armies.

    Isaiah 19:5 The waters will fail from the sea, and the river will be wasted and become dry.

    Isaiah 19:6 The rivers will become foul. The streams of Egypt will be diminished and dried up. The reeds and flags will wither away.

    Isaiah 19:7 The meadows by the Nile, by the brink of the Nile, and all the sown fields of the Nile, will become dry, be driven away, and be no longer.

    Isaiah 19:8 The fishermen will lament, and all those who fish in the Nile will mourn, and those who spread nets on the waters will languish.

    Isaiah 19:9 Moreover those who work in combed flax, and those who weave white cloth, will be confounded.

    Isaiah 19:10 The pillars will be broken in pieces. All those who work for hire will be grieved in soul.

    Isaiah 19:11 The leaders of Zoan are utterly foolish. The counsel of the wisest counselors of Pharaoh have become stupid. How do you say to Pharaoh, “I am the son of the wise, the son of ancient kings?”

    Isaiah 19:12 Where then are your wise men? Let them tell you now; and let them know what Yahweh of Armies has purposed concerning Egypt.

    Isaiah 19:13 The leaders of Zoan have become fools. The leaders of Memphis are deceived. They have caused Egypt to go astray, who are the cornerstone of her tribes.

    Isaiah 19:14 Yahweh has mixed a spirit of delusion in the midst of her; and they have caused Egypt to go astray in all of its works, like a drunken man stagger in his vomit.

    Isaiah 19:15 Neither will there be any work for Egypt, which head or tail, palm branch or rush, may do.

    Isaiah 19:16 In that day the Egyptians will be like women. They will tremble and fear because of the shaking of the hand of Yahweh of Armies, which He shakes over them.

    Isaiah 19:17 The land of Judah will become a terror to Egypt. Everyone to whom mention is made of it will be afraid, because of the plans of Yahweh of Armies, which He determines against it.

    Isaiah 19:18 In that day, there will be five cities in the land of Egypt that speak the language of Canaan and swear to Yahweh of Armies. One will be called “the city of destruction.”

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

    Isaiah 19:20 It will be for a sign and for a witness to Yahweh of Armies in the land of Egypt; for they will cry to Yahweh because of oppressors, and He will send them a savior and a defender, and He will deliver them.

    Isaiah 19:21 Yahweh will be known to Egypt, and the Egyptians will know Yahweh in that day. Yes, they will worship with sacrifice and offering, and will vow a vow to Yahweh, and will perform it.

    Isaiah 19:22 Yahweh will strike Egypt, striking and healing. They will return to Yahweh, and He will be entreated by them, and will restore them.

    Isaiah 19:23 In that day there will be a pathway out of Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian will come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria; and the Egyptians will worship with the Assyrians.

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

    Isaiah 19:25 because Yahweh of Armies has blessed them, saying, “blessed be Egypt My people, Assyria the work of My hands, and Israel My inheritance.”

    Chapter 20

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

    Isaiah 20:2 at that time Yahweh spoke by Isaiah the son of Amoz, saying, “go, and loosen the sackcloth from off your waist, and take your shoes from off your feet.” He did so, walking naked and barefoot.

    Isaiah 20:3 Yahweh said, “as My servant Isaiah has walked naked and barefoot three years for a sign and a wonder concerning Egypt and concerning Ethiopia,

    Isaiah 20:4 so the king of Assyria will lead away the captives of Egypt and the exiles of Ethiopia, young and old, naked, and barefoot, and with buttocks uncovered, to the shame of Egypt.

    Isaiah 20:5 They will be dismayed and confounded, because of Ethiopia their expectation, and of Egypt their glory.

    Isaiah 20:6 The inhabitants of this coast land will say in that day, ‘Behold, this is our expectation, where we fled for help to be delivered from the king of Assyria. And we, how will we escape?’”

    Chapter 21

    Isaiah 21:1 The burden of the wilderness of the sea. As whirlwinds in the South sweep through, it comes from the wilderness, from an awesome land.

    Isaiah 21:2 A grievous vision is declared to me. The treacherous man deals treacherously, and the destroyer destroys. Go up, Elam, attack! I have stopped all of Media’s sighing.

    Isaiah 21:3 Therefore my thighs are filled with anguish. Pains have taken hold on me, like the pains of a woman in labor. I am in so much pain that I cannot hear. I so am dismayed that I cannot see.

    Isaiah 21:4 My heart flutters. Horror has frightened me. The twilight that I desired has been turned into trembling for me.

    Isaiah 21:5 They prepare the table. They set the watch. They eat. They drink. Rise up, you leaders, anoint the shield!

    Isaiah 21:6 For the Lord said to me, “go, set a watchman. Let him declare what he sees.

    Isaiah 21:7 When he sees a troop, horsemen in pairs, a troop of donkeys, a troop of camels, he will listen diligently with great attentiveness.”

    Isaiah 21:8 He cried like a lion: “O Lord, I stand continually on the watchtower in the daytime, and every night I stay at my post.

    Isaiah 21:9 Behold, here comes a troop of men, horsemen in pairs.” He answered, “fallen, fallen is Babylon; and all the engraved images of her gods are broken to the ground.

    Isaiah 21:10 You are my threshing, and the grain of my floor!” That which I have heard from Yahweh of Armies, the God of Israel, I have declared to you.

    Isaiah 21:11 The burden of Dumah. One calls to me out of Seir, “watchman, what of the night? Watchman, what of the night?”

    Isaiah 21:12 The watchman said, “the morning comes, and also the night. If you will inquire, inquire. Come back again.”

    Isaiah 21:13 The burden on Arabia. In the forest in Arabia you will lodge, you caravans of Dedanites.

    Isaiah 21:14 They brought water to him who was thirsty. The inhabitants of the land of Tema met the fugitives with their bread.

    Isaiah 21:15 For they fled away from the swords, from the drawn sword, from the bent bow, and from the heat of battle.

    Isaiah 21:16 For the Lord said to me, “within a year, as a worker bound by contract would count it, all the glory of Kedar will fail,

    Isaiah 21:17 and the residue of the number of the archers, the mighty men of the children of Kedar, will be few; for Yahweh, the God of Israel, has spoken it.”

    Chapter 22

    Isaiah 22:1 The burden of the valley of vision. What ails you now that you have all gone up to the housetops?

    Isaiah 22:2 You that are full of shouting, a tumultuous city, a joyous town; your slain are not slain with the sword, neither are they dead in battle.

    Isaiah 22:3 All your rulers fled away together. They were bound by the archers. All who were found by you were bound together. They fled far away.

    Isaiah 22:4 Therefore I said, “look away from me. I will weep bitterly. Do not labor to comfort me for the destruction of the daughter of my people.

    Isaiah 22:5 For it is a day of confusion, and of treading down, and of perplexity, from the Lord, Yahweh of Armies, in the valley of vision; a breaking down of the walls, and a crying to the mountains.”

    Isaiah 22:6 Elam carried his quiver, with chariots of men and horsemen; and Kir uncovered the shield.

    Isaiah 22:7 It happened that your choicest valleys were full of chariots, and the horsemen set themselves in array at the gate.

    Isaiah 22:8 He took away the covering of Judah; and you looked in that day to the armor in the house of the forest.

    Isaiah 22:9 You saw the breaches of the city of David that they were many; and you gathered together the waters of the lower pool.

    Isaiah 22:10 You numbered the houses of Jerusalem, and you broke down the houses to fortify the wall.

    Isaiah 22:11 You also made a reservoir between the two walls for the water of the old pool. But you did not look to him who had done this, neither did you have respect for him who purposed it long ago.

    Isaiah 22:12 In that day, the Lord, Yahweh of Armies, called to weeping, and to mourning, and to baldness, and to dressing in sackcloth:

    Isaiah 22:13 and behold, joy and gladness, killing cattle and killing sheep, eating flesh and drinking wine: “let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we will die.”

    Isaiah 22:14 Yahweh of Armies revealed Himself in my ears, “surely this iniquity will not be forgiven you until you die,” says the Lord, Yahweh of Armies.

    Isaiah 22:15 Thus says the Lord, Yahweh of Armies, “go, get yourself to this treasurer, even to Shebna, who is over the house, and say,

    Isaiah 22:16 ‘what are you doing here? Who has you here that you have dug out a tomb here?’ Cutting himself out a tomb on high, chiseling a habitation for himself in the rock!”

    Isaiah 22:17 Behold, Yahweh will overcome you and hurl you away violently. Yes, He will grasp you firmly.

    Isaiah 22:18 He will surely wrap you around and around and cast you as a heap into a spacious land. There you will die, and there the chariots of your glory will be, the disgrace of your master’s house.

    Isaiah 22:19 I will thrust you from your office. You will be pulled down from your station.

    Isaiah 22:20 It will happen in that day that I will call My servant Eliakim the son of Hilkiah,

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

    Isaiah 22:22 I will lay the key of the house of David on his shoulder. He will open, and no one will shut. He will shut, and no one will open.

    Isaiah 22:23 I will fasten him like a nail in a sure place. He will be for a throne of glory to his father’s house.

    Isaiah 22:24 They will hang on him all the glory of his father’s house, the offspring and the issue, every small vessel, from the cups even to all the pitchers.

    Isaiah 22:25 “In that day,” says Yahweh of Armies, “the nail that was fastened in a sure place will give way. It will be cut down, and fall. The burden that was on it will be cut off, for Yahweh has spoken it.”

    Chapter 23

    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 Kittim it is revealed to them.

    Isaiah 23:2 Be still, you inhabitants of the coast, you whom the merchants of Sidon, that pass over the sea, have replenished.

    Isaiah 23:3 On great waters, the seed of the Shihor, the harvest of the Nile, was her revenue. She was the market of nations.

    Isaiah 23:4 Be ashamed, Sidon; for the sea has spoken, the stronghold of the sea, saying, “I have not travailed, nor brought forth, neither have I nourished young men, nor brought up virgins.”

    Isaiah 23:5 When the report comes to Egypt, they will be in anguish at the report of Tyre.

    Isaiah 23:6 Pass over to Tarshish! Wail, you inhabitants of the coast!

    Isaiah 23:7 Is this your joyous city, whose antiquity is of ancient days, whose feet carried her far away to travel?

    Isaiah 23:8 Who has planned this against Tyre, the giver of crowns, whose merchants are leaders, whose traffickers are the honorable of the land?

    Isaiah 23:9 Yahweh of Armies has planned it, to defile the pride of all that is glorious, to bring into contempt all the honorable of the land.

    Isaiah 23:10 Pass through your land like the Nile, daughter of Tarshish. There is no restraint any longer.

    Isaiah 23:11 He has stretched out His hand over the sea. He has shaken the kingdoms. Yahweh has ordered the destruction of Canaan’s strongholds.

    Isaiah 23:12 He said, “you will rejoice no longer, you oppressed virgin daughter of Sidon. Arise, pass over to Kittim. Even there you will have no rest.”

    Isaiah 23:13 Behold, the land of the Chaldeans. This people were nothing. The Assyrians appointed it for desert creatures. They set up their towers. They overthrew its palaces. They made it uninhabitable.

    Isaiah 23:14 Howl, you ships of Tarshish, for your stronghold is laid waste!

    Isaiah 23:15 It will come to pass in that day that Tyre will be forgotten seventy years, according to the days of one king. After the end of seventy years, it will be to Tyre like in the song of the prostitute.

    Isaiah 23:16 Take a harp; go about the city, you prostitute that has been forgotten. Make sweet melody. Sing many songs, that you may be remembered.

    Isaiah 23:17 It will happen after the end of seventy years that Yahweh will visit Tyre, and she will return to her wages, and will play the prostitute with all the kingdoms of the world on the surface of the land.

    Isaiah 23:18 Her merchandise and her wages will be holiness to Yahweh. It will not be treasured nor laid up; for her merchandise will be for those who dwell before Yahweh, to eat sufficiently, and for durable clothing.

    Chapter 24

    Isaiah 24:1 Behold, Yahweh makes the land empty, makes it waste, turns it upside down, and scatters its inhabitants.

    Isaiah 24:2 It will 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 creditor, so with the debtor; as with the taker of interest, so with the giver of interest.

    Isaiah 24:3 The land will be utterly emptied and utterly laid waste; for Yahweh has spoken this word.

    Isaiah 24:4 The land mourns and fades away. The world languishes and fades away. The lofty people of the land languish.

    Isaiah 24:5 The land also is polluted under its inhabitants, because they have transgressed the Laws, violated the statutes, and broken the age-lasting covenant.

    Isaiah 24:6 Therefore the curse has devoured the land, and those who dwell in it are found guilty. Therefore, the inhabitants of the land are burned, and few men left.

    Isaiah 24:7 The new wine mourns. The vine languishes. All the merry-hearted sigh.

    Isaiah 24:8 The mirth of tambourines ceases. The sound of those who rejoice ends. The joy of the harp ceases.

    Isaiah 24:9 They will not drink wine with a song. Strong drink will be bitter to those who drink it.

    Isaiah 24:10 The confused city is broken down. Every house is shut up, that no man may come in.

    Isaiah 24:11 There is a crying in the streets because of the wine. All joy is darkened. The mirth of the land is gone.

    Isaiah 24:12 The city is left in desolation, and the gate is struck with destruction.

    Isaiah 24:13 For it will be so in the midst of the land among the peoples, as the shaking of an olive tree, as the gleanings when the vintage is done.

    Isaiah 24:14 These will lift up their voice. They will shout for the majesty of Yahweh. They cry aloud from the sea.

    Isaiah 24:15 Therefore glorify Yahweh in the east, even the name of Yahweh, the God of Israel, in the islands of the sea!

    Isaiah 24:16 From the uttermost part of the land have we heard songs. Glory to the righteous! But I said, “I pine away! I pine away! woe is me!” The treacherous have dealt treacherously. Yes, the treacherous have dealt very treacherously.

    Isaiah 24:17 Fear, the pit, and the snare are on you who inhabitant the land.

    Isaiah 24:18 It will happen that he who flees from the noise of the fear will fall into the pit; and he who comes up out of the midst of the pit will be taken in the snare; for the windows on high are opened, and the foundations of the land tremble.

    Isaiah 24:19 The land is utterly broken. The land is torn apart. The land is shaken violently.

    Isaiah 24:20 The land will stagger like a drunken man and will sway back and forth like a hammock. Its disobedience will be heavy on it, and it will fall and not rise again.

    Isaiah 24:21 It will happen in that day Yahweh will visit with punishment the army of the exalted ones in pride, and the kings of the land over the land.

    Isaiah 24:22 They will be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the cistern, and will be shut up in the prison; and after many days will they be visited.

    Isaiah 24:23 Then the moon will be disgraced, and the sun ashamed; for Yahweh of Armies will reign on Mount Zion, and in Jerusalem; and His glory will be in the sight of His elders.

    Chapter 25

    Isaiah 25:1 Yahweh, you are my God. I will exalt You! I will praise Your name, for You have done wonderful things, things planned long ago, in complete faithfulness and truth.

    Isaiah 25:2 For You have made a city into a heap, a fortified city into a ruin, a palace of the wayward to be no city. It will never be rebuilt.

    Isaiah 25:3 Therefore a strong people will glorify You. A city of awesome nations will fear You.

    Isaiah 25:4 For You have been a stronghold to the poor, a stronghold to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shade from the heat, when the violent wind of the tyrants is like a storm on all sides.

    Isaiah 25:5 As the heat in a dry place will You bring down the noise of the wayward; as the heat by the shade of a cloud, the branch of the tyrants will be answered.

    Isaiah 25:6 In this mountain, Yahweh of Armies will make all peoples a feast of rich food in oil, a feast of aged wines, of rich food in oil full of marrow, of aged wines purified.

    Isaiah 25:7 He will swallow up in this mountain the presence of the shroud that veils all the people, and the blinding superstition that is spread over all nations.

    Isaiah 25:8 He has swallowed up death perpetually! The Lord Yahweh will wipe away tears from off all faces. He will take the mockery of His people away from all the lands, for Yahweh has spoken it.

    Isaiah 25:9 It will be said in that day, “behold, this is our God! We have waited for Him, and He will save us! This is Yahweh! We have waited for Him. We will be glad and rejoice in His salvation!”

    Isaiah 25:10 For in this mountain the hand of Yahweh will rest. Moab will be trodden down in his place, even like straw is trodden down in the water of the dunghill.

    Isaiah 25:11 He will spread out his hands in the middle, like one who swims spreads out hands to swim, but his pride will be humbled together with the craft of his hands.

    Isaiah 25:12 He has brought the high fortress of your walls down, laid low, and brought to the ground, even to the dust.

    Chapter 26

    Isaiah 26:1 In that day, this song will be sung in the land of Judah: “we have a strong city. God appoints salvation for walls and bulwarks.

    Isaiah 26:2 Open the gates that the righteous nation may enter: the one which keeps faithfulness.

    Isaiah 26:3 You will keep whoever’s mind is steadfast in perfect peace, because he trusts in You.

    Isaiah 26:4 Trust in Yahweh always; for in Yah, Yahweh, is an infinite Rock.

    Isaiah 26:5 For He has brought down those who 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.

    Isaiah 26:6 The foot will tread it down; even the feet of the poor, and the steps of the needy.”

    Isaiah 26:7 The way of the just is uprightness. You who are upright make the path of the righteous level.

    Isaiah 26:8 Yes, in the way of Your judgments, Yahweh, we have waited for You. Your name and Your renown are the desire of our soul.

    Isaiah 26:9 With my soul have I desired You in the night. Yes, with my spirit within me will I seek You earnestly; for when Your judgments are in the land, the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness.

    Isaiah 26:10 Let favor be shown to the wicked, yet he will not learn righteousness. In the land of uprightness, he will deal wrongfully, and will not see Yahweh’s majesty.

    Isaiah 26:11 Yahweh, Your hand is lifted up, yet they do not see; but they will see Your zeal for the people, and be put to shame. Yes, fire will consume Your adversaries.

    Isaiah 26:12 Yahweh, You will establish peace for us, for You have also worked all our works in us.

    Isaiah 26:13 Yahweh our God, other lords besides You have had dominion over us, but by You only will we make mention of Your name.

    Isaiah 26:14 The dead will not live. The deceased will not rise. Therefore, You have punished and destroyed them, and caused all memory of them to perish.

    Isaiah 26:15 You have increased the nation, O Yahweh. You have increased the nation! You are glorified! You have enlarged all the borders of the land.

    Isaiah 26:16 Yahweh, in trouble they have paid attention to You. They poured out a prayer when Your chastening was on them.

    Isaiah 26:17 Like as a woman with child, who draws near the time of her delivery, is in pain and cries out in her pangs; so, we have been before You, Yahweh.

    Isaiah 26:18 We have been with child. We have been in pain. We gave birth it seems, only to wind. We have not worked any salvation in the land; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen prostrate.

    Isaiah 26:19 Your dead will come alive. My dead body will arise. Awake and shout for joy, you who dwell in the dust; for your dew is like the dew of herbs, and the land will cast forth the dead.

    Isaiah 26:20 Come, My people, enter into your rooms, and shut your doors behind you. Hide yourself for a little moment, until the indignation is passed over.

    Isaiah 26:21 For, behold, Yahweh comes forth out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the land for their iniquity. The land also will reveal her bloodshed and will no longer cover her murders.

    Chapter 27

    Isaiah 27:1 In that day, Yahweh with His hard and great and strong sword will punish Leviathan, the fleeing serpent, and Leviathan the twisted serpent; and He will kill the dragon that is in the sea.

    Isaiah 27:2 In that day, sing to her, “a pleasant vineyard!

    Isaiah 27:3 I, Yahweh, am its keeper. I will water it every moment. Unless anyone damage it, I will keep it night and day.

    Isaiah 27:4 Wrath is not in Me, but if I should find briers and thorns, I would do battle! I would march on them, and I would burn them together.

    Isaiah 27:5 Or else let him take hold of My strength, that he may make peace with Me. Let him make peace with Me.”

    Isaiah 27:6 In days to come, Jacob will take root. Israel will blossom and bud. They will fill the surface of the world with fruit.

    Isaiah 27:7 Has He struck them as He struck those who struck them? Or have they been killed like those killed by Him?

    Isaiah 27:8 In measure, when you send them away, you contend with them. He has removed them with His rough blast in the day of the east wind.

    Isaiah 27:9 Therefore by this the iniquity of Jacob will be forgiven, and this is all the fruit of taking away his sin: that he makes all the stones of the altar as chalk stones that are beaten in pieces, so that the Asherim and the incense altars will rise no longer.

    Isaiah 27:10 For the fortified city is solitary, a habitation deserted and forsaken, like the wilderness. The calf will feed there, and there he will lie down, and consume its branches.

    Isaiah 27:11 When its boughs are withered, they will be broken off. The women will come and set them on fire, for they are a people of no understanding. Therefore, He who made them will not have compassion on them, and He who formed them will show them no favor.

    Isaiah 27:12 It will happen in that day, that Yahweh will thresh from the flowing stream of the Euphrates to the brook of Egypt; and you will be gathered one by one, children of Israel.

    Isaiah 27:13 It will happen in that day that a great trumpet will be blown; and those who were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and those who were outcasts in the land of Egypt, will come; and they will worship Yahweh in the holy mountain at Jerusalem.

    Chapter 28

    Isaiah 28:1 Woe to the crown of pride of the drunkards of Ephraim, and to the fading flower of his glorious beauty, which is on the head of the fertile valley of those who are overcome with wine!

    Isaiah 28:2 Behold, the Lord has one who is mighty and strong. Like a storm of hail, a destroying storm, and like a storm of mighty waters overflowing, He will cast them down to the ground with His hand.

    Isaiah 28:3 The crown of pride of the drunkards of Ephraim will be trodden under foot.

    Isaiah 28:4 The fading flower of his glorious beauty, which is on the head of the fertile valley, will be like the first-ripe fig before the summer, which someone picks and eats as soon as he sees it.

    Isaiah 28:5 In that day, Yahweh of Armies will become a crown of glory, and a diadem of beauty, to the residue of His people;

    Isaiah 28:6 and a spirit of justice to him who sits in judgment, and strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate.

    Isaiah 28:7 They also reel with wine, and stagger with strong drink. The priest and the prophet reel with strong drink. They are swallowed up by wine. They stagger with strong drink. They err in vision. They stumble in judgment.

    Isaiah 28:8 For all tables are completely full of filthy vomit and filthiness.

    Isaiah 28:9 Whom will He teach knowledge? To whom will He explain the message? Those who are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts?

    Isaiah 28:10 For it is precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, there a little.

    Isaiah 28:11 But He will speak to this nation with stammering lips and in another language;

    Isaiah 28:12 to whom He said, “This is the resting place. Give rest to weary”; and “This is the refreshing”; yet they would not hear.

    Isaiah 28:13 Therefore the word of Yahweh will be to them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, there a little; that they may go, fall backward, be broken, be snared, and be taken.

    Isaiah 28:14 Therefore hear the word of Yahweh, you scoffers that rule this people in Jerusalem:

    Isaiah 28:15 “because you have said, ‘we have made a covenant with death, and with Sheol are we in agreement. When the overflowing scourge passes through, it will not come to us; for we have made lies our refuge, and we have hidden ourselves under falsehood.’”

    Isaiah 28:16 Therefore thus says the Lord Yahweh, “behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious cornerstone of a sure foundation. He who believes will not act hastily.

    Isaiah 28:17 I will make justice the measuring line, and righteousness the plumb line. The hail will sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters will overflow the hiding place.

    Isaiah 28:18 Your covenant with death will be annulled, and your agreement with Sheol will not stand. When the overflowing scourge passes through, then you will be trampled down by it.

    Isaiah 28:19 As often as it passes through, it will seize you; for morning by morning, it will pass through, by day and by night; and it will be nothing but terror to understand the message.”

    Isaiah 28:20 For the bed is too short to stretch out on, and the blanket is too narrow to wrap oneself in.

    Isaiah 28:21 For Yahweh will rise up as on Mount Perazim. He will be angry as in the valley of Gibeon; that He may do His work, His unusual work, and bring to pass His act, His extraordinary act.

    Isaiah 28:22 Now therefore do not be scoffers, unless your bonds be made strong; for I have heard a decree of destruction from the Lord, Yahweh of Armies, on the whole land.

    Isaiah 28:23 Give ear and hear My voice! Listen, and hear My speech!

    Isaiah 28:24 Does he who plows to sow plow continually? Does he keep turning the soil and breaking the clods?

    Isaiah 28:25 When he has leveled its surface, does not he plant the dill, and scatter the cumin seed, and put in the wheat in rows, the barley in the appointed place, and the spelt in its place?

    Isaiah 28:26 For his God instructs him in right judgment and teaches him.

    Isaiah 28:27 For the dill are not threshed with a sharp instrument, neither is a cartwheel turned over the cumin; but the dill is beaten out with a stick, and the cumin with a rod.

    Isaiah 28:28 Bread flour must be ground; so he will not always be threshing it. Although he drives the wheel of his threshing cart over it, his horses do not grind it.

    Isaiah 28:29 This also comes forth from Yahweh of Armies, Who is wonderful in counsel, and excellent in wisdom.

    Chapter 29

    Isaiah 29:1 Woe to Ariel! Ariel, the city where David encamped! Add year to year; let the feasts come around;

    Isaiah 29:2 then I will distress Ariel, and there will be mourning and lamentation. She will be to me as an altar hearth.

    Isaiah 29:3 I will encamp against you all around you and will lay siege against you with posted troops. I will raise ramparts against you.

    Isaiah 29:4 You will be brought down and will speak out of the ground. Your speech will mumble out of the dust. Your voice will be as of one who talks to the dead, out of the ground, and your speech will whisper out of the dust.

    Isaiah 29:5 But the multitude of your foes will be like fine dust, and the multitude of the ruthless ones like chaff that blows away. Yes, it will be in an instant, suddenly.

    Isaiah 29:6 She will be visited by Yahweh of Armies with thunder, with earthquake, with great noise, with whirlwind and storm, and with the flame of a devouring fire.

    Isaiah 29:7 The multitude of all the nations that fight against Ariel, even all who fight against her and her stronghold, and who distress her, will be like a dream, a vision of the night.

    Isaiah 29:8 It will be like when a hungry man dreams, and behold, he eats; but he awakes, and his hunger isn’t satisfied; or like when a thirsty man dreams, and behold, he drinks; but he awakes, and behold, he is faint, and he is still thirsty. The multitude of all the nations that fight against Mount Zion will be like that.

    Isaiah 29:9 Pause and wonder! Blind yourselves and be blind! They are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink.

    Isaiah 29:10 For Yahweh has poured out on you a spirit of deep sleep, and has closed your eyes, the prophets; and He has covered your heads, the seers.

    Isaiah 29:11 All vision has become to you like the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one who is educated, saying, “read this, please”; and he says, “I cannot, for it is sealed:”

    Isaiah 29:12 and the book is delivered to one who is not educated, saying, “read this, please”; and he says, “I cannot read.”

    Isaiah 29:13 The Lord said, “because this people draws near with their mouth and with their lips to honor Me, but they have removed their heart far from Me, and their fear of Me is a commandment of men which has been taught;

    Isaiah 29:14 therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvelous work among this people, even a marvelous work and a wonder; and the wisdom of their wise men will perish, and the understanding of their prudent men will be hidden.”

    Isaiah 29:15 Woe to those who deeply hide their counsel from Yahweh, and whose works are in the dark, and who say, “who sees us?” and “who knows us?”

    Isaiah 29:16 You turn things upside down! Should the potter be thought to be like clay; that the thing made should say about Him who made it, “He did not make me”; or the thing formed say of Him who formed it, “He has no understanding?”

    Isaiah 29:17 Isn’t it yet a very little while, and Lebanon will be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field will be regarded as a forest?

    Isaiah 29:18 In that day, the deaf will hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind will see out of obscurity and out of darkness.

    Isaiah 29:19 The humble also will increase their joy in Yahweh, and the poor among men will rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.

    Isaiah 29:20 For the ruthless is brought to nothing, and the scoffer ceases, and all those who are alert to do evil are cut off —

    Isaiah 29:21 who cause a person to be indicted by a word and lay a snare for the arbiter in the gate, and who deprive the innocent of justice with false testimony.

    Isaiah 29:22 Therefore thus says Yahweh, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob: “Jacob will no longer be ashamed, neither will his face grow pale.

    Isaiah 29:23 But when he sees his children, the work of My hands, in the midst of him, they will sanctify My name. Yes, they will sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and will stand in awe of the God of Israel.

    Isaiah 29:24 They also who err in spirit will come to understanding, and those who grumble will receive instruction.”

    Chapter 30

    Isaiah 30:1 “Woe to the rebellious children,” says Yahweh, “who take counsel, but not from Me; and who make an alliance, but not with My Spirit, that they may add sin to sin,

    Isaiah 30:2 who set out to go down into Egypt, and have not asked My advice; to strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh, and to take refuge in the shadow of Egypt!

    Isaiah 30:3 Therefore the strength of Pharaoh will be your shame, and the refuge in the shadow of Egypt your confusion.

    Isaiah 30:4 For their leaders are at Zoan, and their ambassadors have come to Hanes.

    Isaiah 30:5 They will all be ashamed because of a people that cannot profit them that are not a help nor profit, but a shame, and also a reproach.”

    Isaiah 30:6 The burden of the beasts of the South. Through the land of trouble and anguish, of the lioness and the lion, the viper and fiery flying serpent, they carry their riches on the shoulders of male donkeys, and their treasures on the humps of camels, to an unprofitable people.

    Isaiah 30:7 For Egypt helps in vain, and to no purpose; therefore, have I called her Rahab who sits passive.

    Isaiah 30:8 Now go, write it before them on a tablet, and inscribe it in a book that it may be for the time to come age-lasting and always.

    Isaiah 30:9 For it is a rebellious people, lying children, children who will not hear the Law of Yahweh;

    Isaiah 30:10 who tell the seers, “do not see!” And to the prophets, “do not prophesy to us right things. Tell us pleasant things. Prophesy deceits.

    Isaiah 30:11 Get out of the way. Turn aside from the path. Cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.”

    Isaiah 30:12 Therefore thus says the Holy One of Israel, “because you despise this word, and trust in oppression and perverseness, and rely on it;

    Isaiah 30:13 therefore this iniquity will be to you like a breach ready to fall, swelling out in a high wall, whose breaking comes suddenly in an instant.

    Isaiah 30:14 He will break it as a potter’s vessel is broken, breaking it in pieces without sparing, so that there will not be found among the broken piece a piece good enough to take fire from the hearth, or to dip up water out of the cistern.”

    Isaiah 30:15 For thus said the Lord Yahweh, the Holy One of Israel, “you will be saved in returning and rest. Your strength will be in quietness and in confidence.” You refused,

    Isaiah 30:16 but you said, “no, for we will flee on horses”; therefore, you will flee; and “We will ride on the swift”; therefore those who pursue you will be swift.

    Isaiah 30:17 One thousand will flee at the threat of one. At the threat of five, you will flee until you are left like a beacon on the top of a mountain, and like a banner on a hill.

    Isaiah 30:18 Therefore Yahweh will wait, that He may be gracious to you; and therefore, He will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you, for Yahweh is a God of justice. Blessed are all those who wait for him.

    Isaiah 30:19 For the people will dwell in Zion at Jerusalem. You will weep no longer. He will surely be gracious to you at the voice of your cry. When He hears you, He will answer you.

    Isaiah 30:20 Though the Lord may give you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, yet your teachers will not be hidden any longer, but your eyes will see your teachers;

    Isaiah 30:21 and when you turn to the right hand, and when you turn to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “this is the way. Walk in it.”

    Isaiah 30:22 You will defile the overlaying of your engraved images of silver, and the plating of your molten images of gold. You will cast them away as an unclean thing. You will tell it, “go away!”

    Isaiah 30:23 He will give the rain for your seed, with which you will sow the ground; and bread of the increase of the ground will be rich and plentiful. In that day, your livestock will feed in large pastures.

    Isaiah 30:24 The oxen likewise and the young donkeys that till the ground will eat savory provender, which has been winnowed with the shovel and with the fork.

    Isaiah 30:25 There will be brooks and streams of water on every lofty mountain and on every high hill in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall.

    Isaiah 30:26 Moreover the light of the moon will be like the light of the sun, and the light of the sun will be seven times brighter, like the light of seven days, in the day that Yahweh binds up the fracture of His people and heals the wound they were struck with.

    Isaiah 30:27 Behold, the name of Yahweh comes from far away, burning with His anger, and in thick rising smoke. His lips are full of indignation, and His tongue is as a devouring fire.

    Isaiah 30:28 His breath is as an overflowing stream that reaches even to the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of destruction, and a bridle that leads to ruin will be in the jaws of the peoples.

    Isaiah 30:29 You will have a song, as in the night when a holy feast is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goes with a flute to come to Yahweh’s Mountain, to Israel’s Rock.

    Isaiah 30:30 Yahweh will cause His glorious voice to be heard, and will show the descent of His arm, with the indignation of His anger, and the flame of a devouring fire, with a blast, storm, and hailstones.

    Isaiah 30:31 For through the voice of Yahweh the Assyrian will be dismayed. He will strike him with His rod.

    Isaiah 30:32 Every stroke of the rod of punishment, which Yahweh will lay on him, will be with the sound of tambourines and harps. He will fight with them in battles, brandishing weapons.

    Isaiah 30:33 For His burning place has long been ready. Yes, for the king it is prepared. He has made its pyre deep and large with fire and much wood. Yahweh’s breath, like a stream of sulfur, kindles it.

    Chapter 31

    Isaiah 31:1 Woe to those who 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 do not look to the Holy One of Israel, and they do not seek Yahweh!

    Isaiah 31:2 Yet He also is wise, and will bring disaster, and will not call back His words, but will arise against the house of the evildoers, and against the help of those who work iniquity.

    Isaiah 31:3 Now the Egyptians are men, and not God, and their horses flesh, and not spirit. When Yahweh stretches out His hand, both he who helps will stumble, and he who is helped will fall, and they all will be consumed together.

    Isaiah 31:4 For thus says Yahweh to me, “as the lion and the young lion growling over his prey, if a multitude of shepherds is called together against him, will not be dismayed at their voice, nor abase himself for their noise, so Yahweh of Armies will come down to fight on Mount Zion and on its heights.

    Isaiah 31:5 As birds hovering, so Yahweh of Armies will protect Jerusalem. He will protect and deliver it. He will pass over and preserve it.”

    Isaiah 31:6 Return to Him from whom you have deeply revolted, children of Israel.

    Isaiah 31:7 For in that day everyone will cast away his idols of silver and his idols of gold—sin which your own hands have made for you.

    Isaiah 31:8 “The Assyrian will fall by the sword, not of man; and the sword, not of mankind, will devour him. He will flee from the sword, and his young men will become subject to forced labor.

    Isaiah 31:9 His rock will pass away by reason of terror, and his leaders will be afraid of the banner,” says Yahweh, whose fire is in Zion, and His furnace in Jerusalem.

    Chapter 32

    Isaiah 32:1 Behold, a king will reign in righteousness, and leaders will rule in justice.

    Isaiah 32:2 A man will be as a hiding place from the wind, and a secret place from the storm, as streams of water in a dry place, as the shade of a large rock in a weary land.

    Isaiah 32:3 The eyes of those who see will not be dim, and the ears of those who hear will listen.

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

    Isaiah 32:5 The fool will no longer be called noble, nor the scoundrel be highly respected.

    Isaiah 32:6 For the fool will speak folly, and his heart will work iniquity, to practice profanity, and to utter error against Yahweh, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and to cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.

    Isaiah 32:7 The ways of the scoundrel are evil. He devises wicked devices to destroy the humble with lying words, even when the needy speaks right.

    Isaiah 32:8 But the noble devises noble things; and he will continue in noble things.

    Isaiah 32:9 Rise up, you women who are at ease! Hear My voice! You careless daughters, give ear to My speech!

    Isaiah 32:10 For days beyond a year you will be troubled, you careless women; for the vintage will fail. The harvest will not come.

    Isaiah 32:11 Tremble, you women who are at ease! Be troubled, you careless ones! Strip yourselves, make yourselves naked, and put sackcloth on your waist.

    Isaiah 32:12 Beat your breasts for the pleasant fields, for the fruitful vine.

    Isaiah 32:13 Thorns and briars will come up on My people’s land: yes, on all the houses of joy in the joyous city.

    Isaiah 32:14 For the palace will be forsaken. The populous city will be deserted. The hill and the watchtower will be for dens forever, a delight for wild donkeys, a pasture of flocks;

    Isaiah 32:15 Until the Spirit is poured on us from on high, and the wilderness becomes a fruitful field, and the fruitful field is considered a forest.

    Isaiah 32:16 Then justice will dwell in the wilderness; and righteousness will remain in the fruitful field.

    Isaiah 32:17 The work of righteousness will be peace, and the effect of righteousness, undisturbed and secure perpetually.

    Isaiah 32:18 My people will live in a peaceful habitation, in safe dwellings, and in tranquilly resting places.

    Isaiah 32:19 Though hail flattens the forest, and the city is leveled completely.

    Isaiah 32:20 Blessed are you who sow beside all waters, who send out the feet of the ox and the donkey.

    Chapter 33

    Isaiah 33:1 Woe to you who destroy, but you were not destroyed; and who betray, but nobody betrayed you! When you have finished destroying, you will be destroyed; and when you have made an end of betrayal, you will be betrayed.

    Isaiah 33:2 Yahweh, be gracious to us. We have waited for you. Be our strength every morning, our salvation also in the time of trouble.

    Isaiah 33:3 At the noise of the thunder, the peoples have fled. When you lift yourself up, the nations are scattered.

    Isaiah 33:4 Your spoil will be gathered as the caterpillar gathers. Men will leap on it as locusts leap.

    Isaiah 33:5 Yahweh is exalted, for He dwells on high. He has filled Zion with justice and righteousness.

    Isaiah 33:6 There will be stability in your times, abundance of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge. The fear of Yahweh is your treasure.

    Isaiah 33:7 Behold, their valiant ones cry outside; the ambassadors of peace weep bitterly.

    Isaiah 33:8 The pathways are desolate. The migrant disappears. The covenant is broken. He has despised the cities. He does not respect man.

    Isaiah 33:9 The land mourns and languishes. Lebanon is confounded and withers away. Sharon is like a desert, and Bashan and Carmel are stripped bare.

    Isaiah 33:10 “Now I will arise,” says Yahweh; “now I will lift Myself up. Now I will be exalted.

    Isaiah 33:11 You will conceive chaff. You will bring forth stubble. Your own breath is a fire that will devour you.

    Isaiah 33:12 The peoples will be like the burning of lime, like thorns that are cut down and burned in the fire.

    Isaiah 33:13 Hear, you who are far off, what I have done; and you who are near, acknowledge My might.”

    Isaiah 33:14 The sinners in Zion are afraid. Trembling has seized the godless ones. Who among us can live with the devouring fire? Who among us can live with perpetual burning?

    Isaiah 33:15 He who walks righteously and speaks blamelessly; he who despises the gain of oppressions, who gestures with his hands, refusing to take a bribe, who stops his ears from hearing of blood, and shuts his eyes from looking at evil —

    Isaiah 33:16 he will dwell on high. His place of defense will be the fortress of rocks. His bread will be supplied. His waters will be sure.

    Isaiah 33:17 Your eyes will see the King in His beauty. They will see a distant land.

    Isaiah 33:18 Your heart will meditate on the terror. Where is he who counted? Where is he who weighed? Where is he who counted the towers?

    Isaiah 33:19 You will no longer see the fierce people, a people of an incomprehensible speech that you cannot obey, with an outlandish language that you cannot understand.

    Isaiah 33:20 Look at Zion, the city of our festival appointments. Your eyes will see Jerusalem, a secure habitation, a tent that will not be removed. Its stakes will never be plucked up, nor will any of its cords be broken.

    Isaiah 33:21 But there Yahweh will be with us in majesty, a place of expansive rivers and streams, in which no ships with oars will go, neither will any majestic ships pass through.

    Isaiah 33:22 For Yahweh is our judge. Yahweh is our lawgiver. Yahweh is our king. He will save us.

    Isaiah 33:23 Your cords are untied. They could not establish the base of their mast. They could not spread out the sail. Then the prey of a great spoil was divided. The crippled took the plunder.

    Isaiah 33:24 The fellow citizen will not say, “I am sick.” The people who dwell in it will be forgiven their iniquity.

    Chapter 34

    Isaiah 34:1 Come near, you nations, to hear! Listen, you peoples. Let the earth and all it contains hear; the world, and everything that comes out from it.

    Isaiah 34:2 For Yahweh is enraged against all the nations, and angry with all their armies. He has utterly destroyed them. He has given them over for slaughter.

    Isaiah 34:3 Their slain will also be cast out, and the stench of their dead bodies will come up; and the mountains will melt in their blood.

    Isaiah 34:4 All of the army of the heavens will be dissolved. The heavens will be rolled up like a scroll, and all its armies will fade away, as a leaf fades from off a vine or a fig tree.

    Isaiah 34:5 For My sword has drunk its fill in the heavens. Behold, it will come down on Edom, and on the people of My curse, for judgment.

    Isaiah 34:6 Yahweh’s sword is filled with blood. It is covered with fat, with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams; for Yahweh has a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Edom.

    Isaiah 34:7 The wild oxen will come down with them, and the young bulls with the mighty bulls; and their land will be drunken with blood, and their dust made greasy with fat.

    Isaiah 34:8 For Yahweh has a day of vengeance, a year of recompense for the cause of Zion.

    Isaiah 34:9 Its streams will be turned into pitch, its dust into brimstone and its land will become burning pitch.

    Isaiah 34:10 It will not be quenched night nor day. Its smoke will go up perpetually. From generation to generation, it will lie waste. No one will pass through it perpetually and always.

    Isaiah 34:11 But the pelican and the porcupine will possess it. The owl and the raven will dwell in it. He will stretch out against it the measuring line of disorder, and the stones for destitution.

    Isaiah 34:12 They will call its nobles to the kingdom, but none will be there; and all its leaders will cease to be.

    Isaiah 34:13 Thorns will come up in its palaces, thistles, and thorns in its fortresses; and it will be a habitation of jackals, a court for ostriches.

    Isaiah 34:14 The wild beasts of the desert will meet with the wolves, and the wild goat will cry to his fellow. Yes, the night creature will settle there, and will find herself a place of rest.

    Isaiah 34:15 The arrow snake will make her nest there, and lay, hatch, and gather under her shade. Yes, the kites will be gathered there, everyone with her mate.

    Isaiah 34:16 Search in the book of Yahweh and read: not one of these will be missing, none will lack her mate. For My mouth has commanded, and My Spirit has gathered them.

    Isaiah 34:17 He has cast the lot for them, and His hand has distributed it to them with a measuring line. They will inherit it perpetually. From generation to generation, they will dwell in it.

    Chapter 35

    Isaiah 35:1 The wilderness and the dry land will be glad. The desert will rejoice and blossom like a rose.

    Isaiah 35:2 It will blossom abundantly and rejoice even with joy and singing. Lebanon’s glory Lebanon will be given to it, the excellence of Carmel and Sharon. They will see the glory of Yahweh, the excellence of our God.

    Isaiah 35:3 Strengthen the weak hands and make firm the feeble knees.

    Isaiah 35:4 Tell those who have a fearful heart, “be strong. Do not be afraid. Behold, your God will come with vengeance, God’s retribution. He will come and save you.

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

    Isaiah 35:6 Then the lame man will leap like a deer, and the tongue of the mute will sing; for waters will break out in the wilderness, and streams in the desert.

    Isaiah 35:7 The burning sand will become a pool, and the thirsty ground springs of water. Grass with reeds and rushes will be in the habitation of jackals, where they lay.

    Isaiah 35:8 A preeminent course will be there, a way, and it will be called The Holy Way. The unclean will not pass over it, but it will be for those who are walking in this Way. Even the foolish will not wander from it.

    Isaiah 35:9 No lion will be there, nor will any ravenous beast go up on it. They will not be found there; but the redeemed will walk there.

    Isaiah 35:10 The ransomed ones of Yahweh will return and come with singing into Zion; and perpetual joy will be on their heads. They will obtain gladness and rejoicing and mourning and moaning will flee away.”

    Chapter 36

    Isaiah 36:1 Now it happened in the fourteenth year of King Hezekiah, that Sennacherib king of Assyria attacked all of the fortified cities of Judah and captured them.

    Isaiah 36:2 The king of Assyria sent Rabshakeh from Lachish to Jerusalem to King Hezekiah with a large army. He stood by the aqueduct from the upper pool in the roadway to the fuller’s field.

    Isaiah 36:3 Then Eliakim the son of Hilkiah, who was over the household, and Shebna the scribe, and Joah, the son of Asaph, the recorder came out to him.

    Isaiah 36:4 Rabshakeh said to them, “now tell Hezekiah, ‘thus says the great king, the king of Assyria, “what confidence is this in which you trust?

    Isaiah 36:5 I say that your counsel and strength for the war are only vain words. Now in whom do you trust that you have rebelled against me?

    Isaiah 36:6 Behold, you trust in the staff of this bruised reed, even in Egypt, which if a man leans on it, it will go into his hand and pierce it. So is Pharaoh King of Egypt to all who trust in him.

    Isaiah 36:7 But if you tell me, ‘we trust in Yahweh our God,’ is that not He whose high places and whose altars Hezekiah has taken away, and has said to Judah and to Jerusalem, ‘you will worship before this altar?’”

    Isaiah 36:8 Now therefore, please make a pledge to my master the king of Assyria, and I will give you two thousand horses, if you are able on your part to set riders on them.

    Isaiah 36:9 How then can 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?

    Isaiah 36:10 Have I come up now without Yahweh against this land to destroy it? Yahweh said to me, “go up against this land, and destroy it.”’”

    Isaiah 36:11 Then Eliakim, Shebna and Joah said to Rabshakeh, “please speak to your servants in Aramaic, for we understand it; and do not speak to us in the Jews’ language in the hearing of the people who are on the wall.”

    Isaiah 36:12 But Rabshakeh said, “has my master sent me only to your master and to you, to speak these words, and not to the men who sit on the wall, who will eat their own dung and drink their own urine with you?”

    Isaiah 36:13 Then Rabshakeh stood, and called out with a loud voice in the Jews’ language, and said, “hear the words of the great king, the king of Assyria!

    Isaiah 36:14 Thus says the king, ‘do not let Hezekiah deceive you; for he will not be able to deliver you.

    Isaiah 36:15 Do not let Hezekiah make you trust in Yahweh, saying, “Yahweh will surely deliver us. This city will not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria.”’

    Isaiah 36:16 Do not listen to Hezekiah, for thus says the king of Assyria, ‘make your peace with me, and come out to me; and each of you eat from his vine, and each one from his fig tree, and each one of you drink the waters of his own cistern;

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

    Isaiah 36:18 Beware unless Hezekiah persuade you, saying, “Yahweh will deliver us.” Have any of the gods of the nations delivered their lands from the hand of the king of Assyria?

    Isaiah 36:19 Where are the gods of Hamath and Arpad? Where are the gods of Sepharvaim? Have they delivered Samaria from my hand?

    Isaiah 36:20 Who are they among all the gods of these countries that have delivered their country out of my hand, that Yahweh should deliver Jerusalem out of my hand?’”

    Isaiah 36:21 But they remained silent, and said nothing in reply, for the king’s commandment was, “do not answer him.”

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

    Chapter 37

    Isaiah 37:1 It happened, when King Hezekiah heard it, that he tore his clothes, covered himself with sackcloth, and went into Yahweh’s house.

    Isaiah 37:2 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.

    Isaiah 37:3 They said to him, “Thus says Hezekiah, ‘this day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and of rejection; for the children have come to the birth, and there is no strength to bring forth.

    Isaiah 37:4 It may be Yahweh your God will hear the words of Rabshakeh, whom the king of Assyria his master has sent to defy the living God and will rebuke the words which Yahweh your God has heard. Therefore, lift up your prayer for the remnant that is left.’”

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

    Isaiah 37:6 Isaiah said to them, “tell your master, ‘thus says Yahweh, “do not be afraid of the words that you have heard, with which the servants of the king of Assyria have blasphemed me.

    Isaiah 37:7 Behold, I will put a spirit in him and he will hear news, and will return to his own land. I will cause him to fall by the sword in his own land.”’”

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

    Isaiah 37:9 He heard news concerning Tirhakah king of Ethiopia, “he has come out to fight against you.” When he heard it, he sent messengers to Hezekiah, saying,

    Isaiah 37:10 “thus you will speak to Hezekiah king of Judah, saying, ‘do not let your God in whom you trust deceive you, saying, “Jerusalem will not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria.”

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

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

    Isaiah 37:13 Where is the king of Hamath, and the king of Arpad, and the king of the city of Sepharvaim, of Hena, and Ivvah?’”

    Isaiah 37:14 Hezekiah received the letter from the hand of the messengers and read it. Then Hezekiah went up to Yahweh’s house and spread it before Yahweh.

    Isaiah 37:15 Hezekiah prayed to Yahweh, saying,

    Isaiah 37:16 “Yahweh of Armies, the God of Israel, who is enthroned among the cherubim, You are God, even You alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth.

    Isaiah 37:17 Turn your ear, Yahweh, and hear. Open Your eyes, Yahweh, and behold. Hear all the words of Sennacherib, who has sent to defy the living God.

    Isaiah 37:18 Truly, Yahweh, the kings of Assyria have destroyed all the countries and their land,

    Isaiah 37:19 and have cast their gods into the fire; for they were no gods, but the work of men’s hands, wood, and stone; therefore, they have destroyed them.

    Isaiah 37:20 Now therefore, Yahweh our God, save us from his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that You are Yahweh, even You only.”

    Isaiah 37:21 Then Isaiah the son of Amoz sent to Hezekiah, saying, “thus says Yahweh, the God of Israel, ‘because you have prayed to Me against Sennacherib king of Assyria,

    Isaiah 37:22 this is the word which Yahweh has spoken concerning him. The virgin daughter of Zion has despised you and ridiculed you. The daughter of Jerusalem has shaken her head at you.

    Isaiah 37:23 Whom have you defied and blasphemed? Against whom have you exalted your voice and lifted up your eyes on high? Against the Holy One of Israel.

    Isaiah 37:24 By your servants, have you defied the Lord, and have said, “with the multitude of my chariots I have come up to the height of the mountains, to the innermost parts of Lebanon. I will cut down its tall cedars and its choice fir trees. I will enter into its farthest height, the forest of its fruitful field.

    Isaiah 37:25 I have dug and drunk water, and with the sole of my feet I will dry up all the rivers of Egypt.”

    Isaiah 37:26 Have you not heard how I have done it long ago, and formed it in ancient times? Now I have brought it to pass, that it should be yours to destroy fortified cities, turning them into ruinous heaps.

    Isaiah 37:27 Therefore their inhabitants had little power. They were dismayed and confounded. They were like the grass of the field, and like the green herb, like the grass on the housetops, and like a field before its crop has grown.

    Isaiah 37:28 But I know your sitting down, your going out, your coming in, and your raging against Me.

    Isaiah 37:29 Because of your raging against Me, and because your arrogance has come up into My ears, therefore will I 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.

    Isaiah 37:30 This will be the sign to you. You will eat this year that which grows of itself and in the second year that which springs from the same; and in the third-year sow and reap and plant vineyards, and eat their fruit.

    Isaiah 37:31 The remnant that is escaped of the house of Judah will again take root downward, and bear fruit upward.

    Isaiah 37:32 For out of Jerusalem a remnant will go forth, and survivors will escape from Mount Zion. The zeal of Yahweh of Armies will perform this.’

    Isaiah 37:33 Therefore thus says Yahweh concerning the king of Assyria, ‘He will not come to this city, nor shoot an arrow there, neither will he come before it with shield, nor cast up a mound against it.

    Isaiah 37:34 By the way that he came, by the same he will return, and he will not come to this city,’ says Yahweh.

    Isaiah 37:35 ‘For I will defend this city to save it for My own sake and for My servant David’s sake.’”

    Isaiah 37:36 The angel of Yahweh went out and struck one hundred and eighty-five thousand men in the camp of the Assyrians. When men arose early in the morning, behold, these were all dead bodies.

    Isaiah 37:37 So Sennacherib king of Assyria departed, went away, returned to Nineveh, and stayed there.

    Isaiah 37:38 It happened, as he was worshipping in the house of Nisroch his god, that Adrammelech and Sharezer his sons struck him with the sword; and they escaped into the land of Ararat. Esar Haddon his son reigned in his place.

    Chapter 38

    Isaiah 38:1 In those days was Hezekiah sick and near death. Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, came to him, and said to him, “thus says Yahweh, ‘set your house in order, for you will die, and not live.’”

    Isaiah 38:2 Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to Yahweh,

    Isaiah 38:3 and said, “remember now, Yahweh, I beg you, how I have walked before You in truth and with a whole heart and have done that which is good in Your sight.” Hezekiah wept bitterly.

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

    Isaiah 38:5 “go, and tell Hezekiah, ‘thus says Yahweh, the God of David your father, “I have heard your prayer. I have seen your tears. Behold, I will add fifteen years to your life.

    Isaiah 38:6 I will deliver you and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria, and I will defend this city.

    Isaiah 38:7 This will be the sign to you from Yahweh that Yahweh will do this thing that He has spoken.

    Isaiah 38:8 Behold, I will cause the shadow on the sundial, which has gone down on the sundial of Ahaz with the sun, to return backward ten steps. So, the sun returned ten steps on the sundial on which it had gone down.”’”

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

    Isaiah 38:10 I said, “in the midst of my life I go into the gates of Sheol. I am deprived of the residue of my years.”

    Isaiah 38:11 I said, “I will not see Yah, Yah in the land of the living. I will see man no longer with the inhabitants of the world.

    Isaiah 38:12 My dwelling is removed and is carried away from me like a shepherd’s tent. I have rolled up, like a weaver, my life. He will cut me off from the loom. From day even to night you will make an end of me.

    Isaiah 38:13 I waited patiently until morning. He breaks all my bones like a lion. From day even to night you will make an end of me.

    Isaiah 38:14 I chattered like a swallow or a crane. I moaned like a dove. My eyes weaken looking upward. Lord, I am oppressed. Be my security.”

    Isaiah 38:15 What will I say? He has both spoken to me, and Himself has done it. I will walk carefully all my years because of the anguish of my soul.

    Isaiah 38:16 Lord, men live by these things; and my spirit finds life in all of them: You restore me and cause me to live.

    Isaiah 38:17 Behold, for peace I had great anguish, but You have in love for my soul delivered it from the pit of corruption; for You have cast all my sins behind Your back.

    Isaiah 38:18 For Sheol cannot praise You. Death cannot celebrate You. Those who go down into the pit cannot hope for Your truth.

    Isaiah 38:19 The living, the living, he will praise You, as I do this day. The father will make known Your truth to the children.

    Isaiah 38:20 Yahweh will save me. Therefore, we will sing my songs with stringed instruments all the days of our life in the house of Yahweh.

    Isaiah 38:21 Now Isaiah had said, “let them take pressed figs, and lay it for a compress on the boil, and he will recover.”

    Isaiah 38:22 Hezekiah also had said, “What is the sign that I will go up to the house of Yahweh?”

    Chapter 39

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

    Isaiah 39:2 Hezekiah was pleased with them, and showed them the house of his precious things, the silver, and the gold, the spices, and the precious oil, 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.

    Isaiah 39:3 Then Isaiah the prophet came to King Hezekiah, and asked him, “what did these men say? Where did they come from to you?” Hezekiah said, “they have come from a country far from me, even from Babylon.”

    Isaiah 39:4 Then He asked, “what have they seen in your house?” Hezekiah answered, “They have seen all that is in my house. There is nothing among my treasures that I have not shown them.”

    Isaiah 39:5 Then Isaiah said to Hezekiah, “Hear the word of Yahweh of Armies:

    Isaiah 39:6 ‘behold, the days are coming when all that is in your house, and that which your fathers have stored up until this day, will be carried to Babylon. Nothing will be left,’ says Yahweh.

    Isaiah 39:7 ‘They will take away your sons who will issue from you, whom you will father, and they will be eunuchs in the king of Babylon’s palace.’”

    Isaiah 39:8 Then Hezekiah said to Isaiah, “Yahweh’s word which you have spoken is good.” He said moreover, “for there will be peace and truth in my days.”

    Chapter 40

    Isaiah 40:1 “Comfort, comfort My people,” says your God.

    Isaiah 40:2 “Speak to the heart of Jerusalem; and call out to her that her military service is over, that her iniquity is pardoned, that she has paid double from Yahweh’s hand for all her sins.”

    Isaiah 40:3 The voice of one who calls out, “prepare the way of Yahweh in the wilderness! Make a level pathway in the desert for our God.

    Isaiah 40:4 Every valley will be exalted, and every mountain and hill will be made low. The uneven will be made level, and the rough places a plain.

    Isaiah 40:5 The glory of Yahweh will be revealed, and all flesh will see it together; for the mouth of Yahweh has spoken it.”

    Isaiah 40:6 The voice of one saying, “cry!” One said, “what will I cry?” “All flesh is like grass, and all its glory is like the flower of the field.

    Isaiah 40:7 The grass withers, the flower fades, because Yahweh’s breath blows on it. Surely the people are like grass.

    Isaiah 40:8 The grass withers, the flower fades; but the word of our God stands perpetually.”

    Isaiah 40:9 You who tell good news to Zion, go up on a high mountain. You who tell good news to Jerusalem, lift up your voice with strength. Lift it up. Do not be afraid. Say to the cities of Judah, “behold, your God!”

    Isaiah 40:10 Behold, the Lord Yahweh will come as a mighty one, and His arm will rule for Him. Behold, His reward is with Him, and His recompense before Him.

    Isaiah 40:11 He will feed His flock like a shepherd. He will gather the lambs in His arm and carry them in His bosom. He will gently lead those who have their young.

    Isaiah 40:12 Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand, and marked off the heavens with His span, and calculated the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?

    Isaiah 40:13 Who has directed the Spirit of Yahweh, or has taught Him as His counselor?

    Isaiah 40:14 Who did He take counsel with, and who instructed Him, and taught Him in the path of justice, and taught Him knowledge, and showed Him the way of understanding?

    Isaiah 40:15 Behold, the nations are like a drop in a bucket, and are regarded as a speck of dust on a balance. Behold, He lifts up the islands like a very little thing.

    Isaiah 40:16 Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor its beasts sufficient for ascension offerings.

    Isaiah 40:17 All the nations are like nothing before Him. They are regarded by Him as less than nothing, and vanity.

    Isaiah 40:18 To whom then will you liken God? Or what likeness will you compare to Him?

    Isaiah 40:19 A workman has cast an image, and the goldsmith overlays it with gold, and casts silver chains for it.

    Isaiah 40:20 He who is too impoverished for such an offering chooses a tree that will not rot. He seeks a skillful workman to set up an engraved image for him that will not be moved.

    Isaiah 40:21 Have you not known? Have you not heard, yet? Have you not been told from the beginning? Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth?

    Isaiah 40:22 It is He who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers; who stretches out the heavens like a curtain and spreads them out like a tent to dwell in;

    Isaiah 40:23 who brings leaders to nothing; who makes the judges of the earth as meaningless.

    Isaiah 40:24 They are planted scarcely. They are sown scarcely. Their stock has scarcely taken root in the ground. He merely blows on them, and they wither, and the whirlwind takes them away as stubble.

    Isaiah 40:25 “To whom then will you liken Me? Who is My equal?” Says the Holy One.

    Isaiah 40:26 Lift up your eyes on high, and see who has created these, who brings out their army by number. He calls them all by name. By the greatness of His might, and because He is strong in power, not one is lacking.

    Isaiah 40:27 Why do you say, Jacob, and speak, Israel, “my way is hidden from Yahweh, and the justice due me is disregarded by my God?”

    Isaiah 40:28 Have you not known? Have you not heard? The infinite God, Yahweh, the Creator of the ends of the earth, does not faint. He is not weary. His understanding is unsearchable.

    Isaiah 40:29 He gives power to the weak. He increases the strength of him who has no might.

    Isaiah 40:30 Even the youths faint and get weary, and the young men utterly fall;

    Isaiah 40:31 but those who bind together for Yahweh will exchange their strength. They will mount up with wings like eagles. They will run, and not be weary. They will walk, and not faint.

    Chapter 41

    Isaiah 41:1 “Keep silent before Me, islands, and let the peoples renew their strength. Let them come near, then let them speak. Let’s meet together for judgment.

    Isaiah 41:2 Who has raised up one from the east? Who called him to His feet in righteousness? He hands over nations to him, and makes him rule over kings. He gives them like the dust to his sword, like the driven stubble to his bow.

    Isaiah 41:3 He pursues them, and passes by safely, even by a way that he had not gone with his feet.

    Isaiah 41:4 Who has worked and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I, Yahweh, the first, and including the last, I am He.”

    Isaiah 41:5 The islands have seen, and fear. The farthest out of the land tremble. They approach and come.

    Isaiah 41:6 Everyone helps his neighbor. They say to their brothers, “be strong!”

    Isaiah 41:7 So the carpenter encourages the goldsmith. He who makes smooth with the hammer encourages him who strikes the anvil, saying of the welding, “it is good”; and he fastens it with nails, that it might not totter.

    Isaiah 41:8 “But you, Israel, My servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham My friend,

    Isaiah 41:9 you whom I have taken hold of from the secluded parts of the land, and called from its corners, and said to you, ‘you are My servant, I have chosen you and not cast you away;’

    Isaiah 41:10 you do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you. Yes, I will help you. Yes, I will uphold you with the right hand of My righteousness.

    Isaiah 41:11 Behold, all those who are incensed against you will be disappointed and confounded. Those who strive with you will be like nothing and will perish.

    Isaiah 41:12 You will seek them, and will not find them, even those who contend with you. Those who war against you will be as nothing, as a non-existent thing.

    Isaiah 41:13 For I, Yahweh your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, ‘do not be afraid. I will help you.’

    Isaiah 41:14 Do not be afraid, you worm Jacob, and you men of Israel. I will help you,” says Yahweh, “and your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel.

    Isaiah 41:15 Behold, I have made you into a new sharp threshing instrument with teeth. You will thresh the mountains, and beat them small, and will make the hills like chaff.

    Isaiah 41:16 You will winnow them, and the wind will carry them away, and the whirlwind will scatter them. You will rejoice in Yahweh. You will glory in the Holy One of Israel.

    Isaiah 41:17 The poor and needy seek water, and there is none. Their tongue fails for thirst. I, Yahweh, will answer them. I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them.

    Isaiah 41:18 I will open rivers on the bare heights, and springs in the midst of the valleys. I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.

    Isaiah 41:19 I will put cedar, acacia, myrtle, and oil trees in the wilderness. I will set fir trees, pine, and box trees together in the desert;

    Isaiah 41:20 that they may see, know, consider, and understand together, that the hand of Yahweh has done this, and the Holy One of Israel has created it.

    Isaiah 41:21 Produce your cause,” says Yahweh. “Bring forth your strong reasons,” says the King of Jacob.

    Isaiah 41:22 “Let them announce and declare to us what will happen. Declare the former things, what they are that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or show us things to come.

    Isaiah 41:23 Declare the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that you are gods. Yes, do good or do evil, that we may be dismayed, and see it together.

    Isaiah 41:24 Behold, you are of nothing, and your work is of nothing. He who chooses you is an abomination.

    Isaiah 41:25 “I have raised up one from the north, and he has come; from the rising of the sun, one who calls on My name; and he will come on rulers as on mortar, and as the potter treads clay.

    Isaiah 41:26 Who has declared it from the beginning that we may know? And before, that we may say, ‘He is right?’ Surely, there is no one who declares. Surely, there is no one who shows. Surely, there is no one who hears your words.

    Isaiah 41:27 I am the first to say to Zion, ‘behold, look at them;’ and I will give one who brings good news to Jerusalem.

    Isaiah 41:28 When I look, there is no man; even among them there is no counselor who, when I ask of them, can answer a word.

    Isaiah 41:29 Behold, all of them are emptiness and their works are insignificant. Their molten images are wind and fruitlessness.

    Chapter 42

    Isaiah 42:1 “Behold, My servant, whom I uphold; My chosen, in whom My soul delights — I have put My Spirit on him. He will bring justice to the nations.

    Isaiah 42:2 He will not shout, nor raise His voice, nor cause it to be heard in the street.

    Isaiah 42:3 He will not break a bruised reed. He will not quench a dimly burning wick. He will faithfully bring justice.

    Isaiah 42:4 He will not fail nor be discouraged, until He has set justice in the land, and the islands will wait for His Law.”

    Isaiah 42:5 Thus says God Yahweh, He who created the heavens and stretched them out, He who spread out the earth and that which comes out of it, He who gives breath to its people and spirit to those who walk in it.

    Isaiah 42:6 “I, Yahweh, have called you in righteousness, and will hold your hand, and will keep you, and make you a covenant for the people, as a light for the nations;

    Isaiah 42:7 to open the blind eyes, to bring the prisoners out of the dungeon, and those who sit in darkness out of the prison.

    Isaiah 42:8 “I am Yahweh. That is My name. I will not give My glory to another, nor My praise to engraved images.

    Isaiah 42:9 Behold, the former things have happened, and I declare new things. I tell you about them before they come up.”

    Isaiah 42:10 Sing to Yahweh a new song, and His praise to the farthest out of the earth, you who go down to the sea, and all that are in it, the islands and their inhabitants.

    Isaiah 42:11 Let the wilderness and its cities raise their voices, with the villages that Kedar inhabits. Let the inhabitants of Sela sing. Let them shout from the top of the mountains!

    Isaiah 42:12 Let them give glory to Yahweh and declare His praise in the islands.

    Isaiah 42:13 Yahweh will go out like a mighty man. He will stir up zeal like a man of war. He will raise a war cry. Yes, He will shout aloud. He will triumph over His enemies.

    Isaiah 42:14 “I have been silent a long time. I have been quiet and restrained Myself. Now I will cry out like a travailing woman. I will both gasp and pant.

    Isaiah 42:15 I will destroy mountains and hills and dry up all their herbs. I will make the rivers islands and will dry up the pools.

    Isaiah 42:16 I will bring the blind by a way that they do not know. I will lead them in paths that they do not know. I will make darkness light before them, and crooked places straight. I will do these things, and I will not forsake them.

    Isaiah 42:17 “Those who trust in engraved images, who tell molten images, ‘You are our gods’ will be turned back. They will be utterly disappointed.

    Isaiah 42:18 “Hear, you deaf, and look, you blind, that you may see.

    Isaiah 42:19 Who is blind, but My servant? Or who is as deaf as My messenger whom I send? Who is as blind as he who is at peace, and as blind as Yahweh’s servant?

    Isaiah 42:20 You see many things, but do not observe. His ears are open, but he does not listen.

    Isaiah 42:21 It pleased Yahweh, for His righteousness’ sake, to magnify the Law, and make it honorable.

    Isaiah 42:22 But this is a robbed and plundered people. All of them are snared in holes, and they are hidden in prisons. They have become a prey, and no one delivers; and a spoil, and no one says, ‘restore them!’

    Isaiah 42:23 Who is there among you who will give ear to this? Who will listen and hear for the time to come?

    Isaiah 42:24 Who gave Jacob as plunder and Israel to the robbers? Did not Yahweh, He against whom we have sinned? For they would not walk in His ways, and they disobeyed His Law.

    Isaiah 42:25 Therefore He poured the fierceness of His anger on him, and the strength of battle; and it set him on fire all around, but he did not know; and it burned him, but he did not take it to heart.”

    Chapter 43

    Isaiah 43:1 But now thus says Yahweh who created you, Jacob, and He who formed you, Israel: “do not be afraid, for I have redeemed you. I have called you by your name. You are Mine.

    Isaiah 43:2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they will not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned, and flame will not scorch you.

    Isaiah 43:3 For I am Yahweh your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. I have given Egypt as your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba in your place.

    Isaiah 43:4 Since you have been precious and honored in My sight, and I have loved you; therefore, I will give people in your place, and nations instead of your life.

    Isaiah 43:5 Do not be afraid; for I am with you. I will bring your seed from the east and gather you from the west.

    Isaiah 43:6 I will tell the north, ‘give them up!’ And tell the south, ‘do not hold them back! Bring My sons from afar, and My daughters from the farthest parts of the earth —

    Isaiah 43:7 everyone who is called by My name, and whom I have created for My glory whom I have formed, yes, whom I have made.’”

    Isaiah 43:8 Bring out the blind people who have eyes, and the deaf who have ears.

    Isaiah 43:9 Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the peoples be assembled. Who among them can declare this, and show us former things? Let them bring their witnesses, that they may be justified; or let them hear, and say, “that is true.”

    Isaiah 43:10 “You are My witnesses,” says Yahweh, “with My servant whom I have chosen; that you may know and believe Me and understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, neither will there be after Me.

    Isaiah 43:11 I Myself am Yahweh; and besides Me there is no savior.

    Isaiah 43:12 I have declared, I have saved, and I have shown; and there was no strange god among you. Therefore, you are My witnesses,” says Yahweh, “and I am God.

    Isaiah 43:13 Yes, since the day was, I am He; and there is no one who can deliver out of My hand. I will work, and who can hinder it?”

    Isaiah 43:14 Thus says Yahweh, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “for your sake, I have sent to Babylon, and I will bring all of them down as fugitives, even the Chaldeans, in the ships of their rejoicing.

    Isaiah 43:15 I am Yahweh, your Holy One, the Creator of Israel, your King.”

    Isaiah 43:16 Thus says Yahweh, who makes a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters;

    Isaiah 43:17 who brings forth the chariot and horse, the army and the mighty man (they lie down together, they will not rise; they are extinct, they are quenched like a wick):

    Isaiah 43:18 “do not remember the former things, and do not consider the things of old.

    Isaiah 43:19 Behold, I will do a new thing. It springs forth now. Do not you know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

    Isaiah 43:20 The beasts of the field will honor me, the jackals and the ostriches; because I give water in the wilderness and rivers in the desert, to give drink to My people, My chosen,

    Isaiah 43:21 the people which I formed for Myself, that they might set forth My praise.

    Isaiah 43:22 Yet you have not called on Me, Jacob; but you have become tired of Me, Israel.

    Isaiah 43:23 You have not brought Me of your sheep for ascension offerings; neither have you honored Me with your sacrifices. I have not burdened you with offerings, nor become tired of your frankincense.

    Isaiah 43:24 You have bought Me no sweet cane with money, nor have you filled Me with the fat of your sacrifices; but you have Me work with your sins. You have exhausted Me with your iniquities.

    Isaiah 43:25 I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; and I will not remember your sins.

    Isaiah 43:26 Put Me in remembrance. Let us deliberate together. Set forth your case, that you may be justified.

    Isaiah 43:27 Your first father sinned, and your teachers have transgressed against me.

    Isaiah 43:28 Therefore I will profane the leaders of the sanctuary; and I will make Jacob a curse, and Israel an insult.”

    Chapter 44

    Isaiah 44:1 Yet listen now, Jacob My servant, and Israel, whom I have chosen.

    Isaiah 44:2 This is what Yahweh who made you, and formed you from the womb, who will help you says: “do not be afraid, Jacob My servant; and you, Jeshurun, whom I have chosen.

    Isaiah 44:3 For I will pour water on him who is thirsty, and streams on the dry ground. I will pour My Spirit on your seed, and My blessing on your offspring:

    Isaiah 44:4 and they will spring up among the grass, as willows by the watercourses.

    Isaiah 44:5 One will say, ‘I am Yahweh’s;’ and another will be called by the name of Jacob; and another will write with his hand ‘to Yahweh,’ and honor the name of Israel.”

    Isaiah 44:6 This is what Yahweh, the King of Israel, and his Redeemer, Yahweh of Armies, says: “I am the first, and I am the last; and besides Me there is no God.

    Isaiah 44:7 Who is like Me? Who will call, and will declare it, and set it in order for Me, since I established the ancient people? Let them declare the things that are coming, and that will happen.

    Isaiah 44:8 Do not fear, neither be afraid. Have I not declared it to you long ago, and shown it? You are My witnesses. Is there a God besides Me? Indeed, there is not. I do not know any other Rock.”

    Isaiah 44:9 Everyone who makes an engraved image is vain. The things that they delight in will not profit. Their own witnesses do not see, nor know, that they may be disappointed.

    Isaiah 44:10 Who has fashioned a god, or molds an image that is profitable for nothing?

    Isaiah 44:11 Behold, all his fellows will be disappointed; and the workmen are mere men. Let them all be gathered together. Let them stand up. They will fear. They will be put to shame together.

    Isaiah 44:12 The blacksmith takes an axe, works in the coals, fashions it with hammers, and works it with his strong arm. He is hungry, and his strength fails; he drinks no water, and is faint.

    Isaiah 44:13 The carpenter stretches out a line. He marks it out with a pencil. He shapes it with planes. He marks it out with compasses, and shapes it like the figure of a man, with the beauty of a man, to reside in a house.

    Isaiah 44:14 He cuts down cedars for himself, and takes the cypress and the oak, and strengthens for himself one among the trees of the forest. He plants a fir tree, and the rain nourishes it.

    Isaiah 44:15 Then it will be for a man to burn; and he takes some of it and warms himself. Yes, he burns it, and bakes bread. Yes, he makes a god, and worships it; he makes it an engraved image and falls down to it.

    Isaiah 44:16 He burns part of it in the fire. With part of it, he eats meat. He roasts a roast and is satisfied. Yes, he warms himself, and says, “Aha! I am warm. I have seen the fire.”

    Isaiah 44:17 The rest of it he makes into a god, even his engraved image. He bows down to it and worships, and prays to it, and says, “deliver me; for you are my god!”

    Isaiah 44:18 They do not know, neither do they consider: for he has shut their eyes, that they cannot see; and their hearts, that they cannot understand.

    Isaiah 44:19 No one thinks, neither is there knowledge nor understanding to say, “I have burned part of it in the fire. Yes, I have also baked bread on its coals. I have roasted meat and eaten it. Will I make the rest of it into an abomination? Will I bow down to a tree trunk?”

    Isaiah 44:20 He feeds on ashes. A deceived heart has turned him aside; and he cannot deliver his soul, nor say, “is there not a lie in my right hand?”

    Isaiah 44:21 Remember these things, Jacob, and Israel; for you are My servant. I have formed you. You are My servant. Israel, you will not be forgotten by Me.

    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.

    Isaiah 44:23 Sing, you heavens, for Yahweh has done it! Shout, you lower parts of the earth! Break out into singing, you mountains, O forest, all of your trees, for Yahweh has redeemed Jacob, and will glorify Himself in Israel.

    Isaiah 44:24 Thus says Yahweh, your Redeemer, and He who formed you from the womb: “I am Yahweh, who makes all things; who alone stretches out the heavens; who spreads out the earth by Myself;

    Isaiah 44:25 who frustrates the signs of the liars, and makes diviners mad; who turns wise men backward, and makes their knowledge foolish;

    Isaiah 44:26 who confirms the word of His servant, and performs the counsel of His messengers; who says of Jerusalem, ‘she will be inhabited;’ and of the cities of Judah, ‘they will be built,’ and ‘I will raise up its waste places;’

    Isaiah 44:27 who says to the deep, ‘be dry,’ and ‘I will dry up your rivers;’

    Isaiah 44:28 who says of Cyrus, ‘he is My shepherd, and will perform all My pleasure,’ even saying of Jerusalem, ‘she will be built;’ and of the temple, ‘your foundation will be laid.’”

    Chapter 45

    Isaiah 45:1 Thus says Yahweh to His anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have held, to subdue nations before him, and strip kings of their armor; to open the doors before him, and the gates will not be shut:

    Isaiah 45:2 “I will go before you and make the rough places smooth. I will break the doors of brass in pieces and cut apart the bars of iron.

    Isaiah 45:3 I will give you the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that it is I, Yahweh, who call You by Your name, even the God of Israel.

    Isaiah 45:4 For Jacob My servant’s sake, and Israel My chosen, I have called you by Your name. I have surnamed you, though you have not known Me.

    Isaiah 45:5 I am Yahweh, and there is no one else. Besides Me, there is no God. I will strengthen you, though you have not known Me;

    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 Yahweh, and there is no one else.

    Isaiah 45:7 I form the light and create darkness. I make peace and create evil. I am Yahweh, who does all these things.

    Isaiah 45:8 Drip, you heavens, from above, and let the clouds pour down righteousness. Let the earth open, that it may bring forth salvation, and let it cause righteousness to spring up with it. I, Yahweh, have created it.

    Isaiah 45:9 Woe to him who strives with his Maker — a clay pot among the clay pots of the earth! Will the clay ask him who fashions it, ‘what are you making?’ Or the finished work, ‘he has no skill in his hands?’

    Isaiah 45:10 Woe to him who says to a father, ‘what have you become the father of?’ Or to a mother, ‘to what have you given birth?’”

    Isaiah 45:11 Thus says Yahweh, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker: “you ask Me about the things that are to come, concerning My sons, and you command Me concerning the work of My hands!

    Isaiah 45:12 I have made the earth and created man on it. I, even My hands, have stretched out the heavens; and I have commanded all their army.

    Isaiah 45:13 I have raised him up in righteousness, and I will make straight all his ways. He will build My city, and he will let My exiles go free, not for price, nor reward,” says Yahweh of Armies.

    Isaiah 45:14 Thus says Yahweh: “the labor of Egypt, and the merchandise of Ethiopia, and the Sabeans, men of stature, will come over to you, and they will be yours. They will go after you. They will come over in chains; and they will bow down to you. They will make supplication to you: ‘surely God is in you; and there is none else. There is no other god.

    Isaiah 45:15 Most certainly you are a God who hides Himself, God of Israel, the Savior.’”

    Isaiah 45:16 They will be disappointed, yes, confounded, all of them. Those who are makers of idols will go into confusion together.

    Isaiah 45:17 Israel will be saved by Yahweh with a perpetual salvation. You will not be ashamed, nor disgraced during time and infinity.

    Isaiah 45:18 For thus says Yahweh who created the heavens, the God who formed the earth and made it, who established it and did not create it in vain, who formed it to be inhabited: “I am Yahweh; and there is no other.

    Isaiah 45:19 I have not spoken in secret, in a place of the land of darkness. I did not say to the seed of Jacob, ‘seek Me in vain.’ I, Yahweh, speak righteousness. I declare things that are right.

    Isaiah 45:20 “Assemble yourselves and come. Draw near together you who have escaped from the nations. Those have no knowledge who carry the wood of their engraved image and pray to a god that cannot save.

    Isaiah 45:21 Declare and present it. Yes, let them take counsel together. Who has shown this from ancient time? Who has declared it of old? Haven’t I, Yahweh? There is no other God besides Me, a just God and a savior; there is no one besides Me.

    Isaiah 45:22 “Look to Me, and be saved, all the farthest parts of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.

    Isaiah 45:23 I have sworn by Myself, the word has gone out of My mouth in righteousness, and will not return, that to Me every knee will bow, every tongue will testify.

    Isaiah 45:24 They will say, ‘I have righteousness and power only in Yahweh.’” Even to Him will men come; and all those who were infuriated at Him will be ashamed.

    Isaiah 45:25 In Yahweh all the seed of Israel will be justified and will glow with praise.

    Chapter 46

    Isaiah 46:1 Bel bows down, Nebo stoops; their idols are on the beasts, and on the livestock: the things that you carried about are made a load, a burden to the weary.

    Isaiah 46:2 They stoop, they bow down together; they could not deliver the burden, but they themselves have gone into captivity.

    Isaiah 46:3 “Listen to Me, house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel, that have been borne from their birth, that have been carried from the womb;

    Isaiah 46:4 and even to old age I am He, and even to gray hairs will I carry you. I have made, and I will bear; yes, I will carry, and will deliver.

    Isaiah 46:5 “To whom will you liken Me, and make Me equal, and compare Me that we may be considered alike?

    Isaiah 46:6 Some pour out gold from the bag, and weigh silver in the balance. They hire a goldsmith, and he makes it a god. They fall down — yes, they worship.

    Isaiah 46:7 They bear it on their shoulder, they carry it, and set it in its place, and it stands and from its place it will not move: yes, one may cry to it, yet it cannot answer, nor save him out of his trouble.

    Isaiah 46:8 “Remember this and show yourselves men; bring it again to mind, you transgressors.

    Isaiah 46:9 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like Me;

    Isaiah 46:10 declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done; saying, My purpose will stand, and I will do all My good pleasure;

    Isaiah 46:11 calling the eagle from the east, the man of My purpose from a distant land; yes, I have spoken, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed, I will also do it.

    Isaiah 46:12 Listen to Me, you stout-hearted, who are far from righteousness:

    Isaiah 46:13 I bring near My righteousness, it will not be far off, and My salvation will not wait; and I will place salvation in Zion for Israel My glory.

    Chapter 47

    Isaiah 47:1 “Come down, and sit in the dust, virgin daughter of Babylon; sit on the ground without a throne, daughter of the Chaldeans: for you will no longer be called tender and delicate.

    Isaiah 47:2 Take the millstones, and grind meal; remove your veil, strip off the train, uncover the leg, pass through the rivers.

    Isaiah 47:3 Your nakedness will be uncovered, yes, your shame will be seen: I will take vengeance, and will spare no man.”

    Isaiah 47:4 Our Redeemer, Yahweh of Armies is His name, the Holy One of Israel.

    Isaiah 47:5 “Sit in silence, and go into darkness, daughter of the Chaldeans; for you will no longer be called the queen of kingdoms.

    Isaiah 47:6 I was angry with My people, I profaned My inheritance, and gave them into your hand: you showed them no mercy; on the aged you have laid your yoke very heavily.

    Isaiah 47:7 You said, ‘I will be a queen perpetually;’ so that you did not take these things to heart, nor did you remember the end of it.

    Isaiah 47:8 “Now therefore hear this, you who are given to pleasures, who sit securely, who say in your heart, ‘I am, and there is none else besides me; I will not sit as a widow, neither will I know the loss of children:’

    Isaiah 47:9 but these two things will come to you in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood; in their full measure will they come on you, in the multitude of your sorceries, and the great abundance of your enchantments.

    Isaiah 47:10 For you have trusted in your wickedness; you have said, no one sees me; your wisdom and your knowledge, it has perverted you, and you have said in your heart, I am, and there is no one else besides me.

    Isaiah 47:11 Therefore evil will come on you; you will not know when it dawns: and mischief will fall on you; you will not be able to put it away: and desolation will come on you suddenly, which you do not know.

    Isaiah 47:12 “Stand now with your enchantments, and with the multitude of your sorceries, in which you have labored from your youth; if so, be you will be able to profit, if so, be you may prevail.

    Isaiah 47:13 You are wearied in the multitude of your counsels: let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save you from the things that will come on you.

    Isaiah 47:14 Behold, they will be as stubble; the fire will burn them; they will not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: it will not be a coal to warm at, nor a fire to sit before.

    Isaiah 47:15 Thus will the things be to you in which you have labored: those who have trafficked with you from your youth will wander everyone to his quarter; there will be none to save you.

    Chapter 48

    Isaiah 48:1 “Hear this, house of Jacob, you who are called by the name of Israel, and have come forth out of the waters of Judah; who swear by the name of Yahweh, and make mention of the God of Israel, but not in truth, nor in righteousness

    Isaiah 48:2 (for they call themselves of the holy city, and stay themselves on the God of Israel; Yahweh of Armies is His name):

    Isaiah 48:3 I have declared the former things from of old; yes, they went forth out of My mouth, and I showed them: suddenly I did them, and they happened.

    Isaiah 48:4 Because I knew that you are obstinate, and your neck is an iron sinew, and your brow brass;

    Isaiah 48:5 therefore I have declared it to you from of old; before it came to pass I showed it to you; unless you should say, ‘my idol has done them, and my engraved image, and my molten image, has commanded them.’

    Isaiah 48:6 You have heard it; see all this; and you, will you not declare it? “I have shown you new things from this time, even hidden things, which you have not known.

    Isaiah 48:7 They are created now, and not from of old; and before this day you did not hear them; unless you should say, ‘behold, I knew them.’

    Isaiah 48:8 Yes, you did not hear; yes, you did not know; yes, from of old your ear was not opened: for I knew that you dealt very treacherously and was called a transgressor from the womb.

    Isaiah 48:9 For My name’s sake will I defer My anger, and for My praise will I refrain for you, that I not cut you off.

    Isaiah 48:10 Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have chosen you in the furnace of affliction.

    Isaiah 48:11 For My own sake, for My own sake, will I do it; for how should My name be profaned? I will not give My glory to another.

    Isaiah 48:12 “Listen to Me, O Jacob, and Israel My called: I am He; I am the first, I also am the last.

    Isaiah 48:13 Yes, My hand has laid the foundation of the earth, and My right hand has spread out the heavens: when I call to them, they stand up together.

    Isaiah 48:14 “Assemble yourselves, all of you, and hear; who among them has declared these things? He whom Yahweh loves will perform His pleasure on Babylon, and His arm will be on the Chaldeans.

    Isaiah 48:15 I, even I, have spoken; yes, I have called him; I have brought him, and he will make his way prosperous.

    Isaiah 48:16 “Come near to Me and hear this: “from the beginning I have not spoken in secret; from the time that it was, there am I.” Now the Lord Yahweh has sent me, with His Spirit.

    Isaiah 48:17 Thus says Yahweh, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: I am Yahweh your God, who teaches you to profit, who leads you by the way that you should go.

    Isaiah 48:18 Oh that you had listened to My commandments! Then your peace would have been like a river, and your righteousness like the waves of the sea:

    Isaiah 48:19 your seed also had been as the sand, and the offspring of your body like its grains: his name would not be cut off nor destroyed from before me.

    Isaiah 48:20 Go forth from Babylon, flee from the Chaldeans; with a voice of singing declare, tell this, utter it even to the farthest parts of the earth: say, Yahweh has redeemed His servant, Jacob.

    Isaiah 48:21 They did not thirst when He led them through the deserts; He caused the waters to flow out of the rock for them; He split the rock also, and the waters gushed out.

    Isaiah 48:22 “There is no peace,” says Yahweh, “for the guilty.”

    Chapter 49

    Isaiah 49:1 Listen, islands, to me; and listen, you peoples, from far: Yahweh has called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother has He made mention of my name:

    Isaiah 49:2 and He has made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of His hand, He has hidden me: and He has made me a polished shaft; in His quiver has He kept me close:

    Isaiah 49:3 and He said to me, “you are My servant; Israel, in whom I will be glorified.”

    Isaiah 49:4 But I said, “I have labored in vain, I have spent my strength for nothing and vanity; yet surely the justice due to me is with Yahweh, and my reward with my God.”

    Isaiah 49:5 Now says Yahweh who formed me from the womb to be His servant, to bring Jacob again to Him, and that Israel be gathered to Him (for I am honorable in the eyes of Yahweh, and my God has become my strength);

    Isaiah 49:6 yes, He says, “it is too light a thing that you should be My servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also place You as a light to the nations, that You may be My salvation to the ends of the earth.”

    Isaiah 49:7 Thus says Yahweh, 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 will see and arise; leaders and they will worship; because of Yahweh who is faithful, even the Holy One of Israel, who has chosen You.”

    Isaiah 49:8 Thus says Yahweh, “in an acceptable time have I answered you, and in a day of salvation I have helped you; and I will preserve You, and give You for a covenant of the people, to raise up the land, to make them inherit the desolate heritage:

    Isaiah 49:9 saying to those who are bound, ‘come out!’; to those who are in darkness, ‘show yourselves!’ “They will feed in the ways, and on all bare heights will be their pasture.

    Isaiah 49:10 They will not hunger nor thirst; neither will the heat nor sun strike them: for He who has mercy on them will lead them, even by springs of water He will guide them.

    Isaiah 49:11 I will make all My mountains a way, and My pathways will be raised up high.

    Isaiah 49:12 Behold, these will come from far; and behold, these from the north and from the west; and these from the land of Sinim.”

    Isaiah 49:13 Sing, heavens; and be joyful, earth; and break forth into shouts of joy, O mountains: for Yahweh has comforted His people, and will have compassion on His afflicted.

    Isaiah 49:14 But Zion said, “Yahweh has forsaken me, and the Lord has forgotten me.”

    Isaiah 49:15 “Can a woman forget her nursing child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yes, these may forget, yet I will not forget you!

    Isaiah 49:16 Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of My hands; your walls are continually before me.

    Isaiah 49:17 Your sons hurry; your destroyers and those who made you waste will vanish from you.

    Isaiah 49:18 Lift up your eyes all around, and see: all these gather themselves together, and come to you. As I live,” says Yahweh, “you will surely clothe yourself with them all as with an ornament, and dress yourself with them, like a bride.

    Isaiah 49:19 “For, as for your waste and your desolate places, and your land that has been destroyed, surely now you will be too small for the inhabitants, and those who swallowed you up will be far away.

    Isaiah 49:20 The children of your bereavement will yet say in your ears, the place is too small for me; give place to me that I may dwell.

    Isaiah 49:21 Then you will say in your heart, ‘Who has conceived these for me, since I have been bereaved of my children, and am solitary, an exile, and wandering back and forth? Who has brought up these? Behold, I was left alone; these, where were they?’”

    Isaiah 49:22 Thus says the Lord Yahweh, “behold, I will lift up My hand to the nations, and set up My banner to the peoples; and they will bring your sons in their bosom, and your daughters will be carried on their shoulders.

    Isaiah 49:23 Kings will be your nursing fathers, and their queens your nursing mothers: they will bow down to you with their faces to the ground and lick the dust of your feet; and you will know that I am Yahweh; and those who wait for me will not be disappointed.”

    Isaiah 49:24 Will the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captives be delivered?

    Isaiah 49:25 But thus says Yahweh, “even the captives of the mighty will be taken away, and the prey of the terrible will be delivered; for I will contend with him who contends with you, and I will save your children.

    Isaiah 49:26 I will feed those who oppress you with their own flesh; and they will be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh will know that I, Yahweh, am your Savior, and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.”

    Chapter 50

    Isaiah 50:1 Thus says Yahweh, “where is the bill of your mother’s divorce, with which I have put her away? Or which of My creditors is it to whom I have sold you? Behold, you were sold for your iniquities, and for your transgressions was your mother put away.

    Isaiah 50:2 Why, when I came, there was no man? When I called, there was 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 stink, because there is no water, and die for thirst.

    Isaiah 50:3 I clothe the heavens with blackness, and I make sackcloth their covering.”

    Isaiah 50:4 The Lord Yahweh has given me the tongue of those who are disciples, that I may know how to sustain with a word him who is weary: He wakens morning by morning, He wakens my ear to hear as those who are disciples.

    Isaiah 50:5 The Lord Yahweh has opened my ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away backward.

    Isaiah 50:6 I gave my back to the strikers, and my cheeks to those who plucked off the hair; I did not hide my face from shame and spitting.

    Isaiah 50:7 For the Lord Yahweh will help me; therefore, I have not been confounded: therefore, have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I will not be disappointed.

    Isaiah 50:8 He is near who justifies me; who will bring charges against me? Let us stand up together: who is my adversary? Let him come near to me.

    Isaiah 50:9 Behold, the Lord Yahweh will help me; who is he who will condemn me? Behold, all they will wax old as a garment, the moth will eat them up.

    Isaiah 50:10 Who is among you who fears Yahweh, who obeys the voice of His servant? He who walks in darkness, and has no light, let him trust in the name of Yahweh, and rely on his God.

    Isaiah 50:11 Behold, all you who kindle a fire, who adorn yourselves with torches around yourselves; walk in the flame of your fire, and among the brands that you have kindled. You will have this of My hand; you will lie down in torment.

    Chapter 51

    Isaiah 51:1 “Listen to me, you who follow after righteousness, you who seek Yahweh: look to the Rock you were cut from, and to the hold of the pit you were dug from.

    Isaiah 51:2 Look to Abraham your father, and to Sarah who bore you; for when he was but one, I called him, and I blessed him, and made him many.

    Isaiah 51:3 For Yahweh has comforted Zion; He has comforted all her waste places, and has made her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of Yahweh; joy and gladness will be found inher, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody.

    Isaiah 51:4 “Attend to Me, My people; and give ear to Me, My nation: for a Law will go forth from Me, and I will establish My justice for a light of the peoples.

    Isaiah 51:5 My righteousness is near, My salvation is gone forth, and My arms will judge the peoples; the islands will wait for Me, and on My arm will they trust.

    Isaiah 51:6 Lift up your eyes to the heavens and look on the earth beneath; for the heavens will vanish away like smoke, and the earth will wax old like a garment; and those who dwell in it will die in the same way: but My salvation will be infinite, and My righteousness will not be abolished.

    Isaiah 51:7 “Listen to me, you who know righteousness, the people in whose heart are My Law; do not fear the reproach of men, neither be dismayed at their insults.

    Isaiah 51:8 For the moth will eat them up like a garment, and the worm will eat them like wool; but My righteousness will be infinite, and My salvation to all generations.”

    Isaiah 51:9 Awake, awake, put on strength, arm of Yahweh; awake, as in the days of old, the generations of ancient times. Is it not You who cut Rahab in pieces, who pierced the monster?

    Isaiah 51:10 Is it not You who dried up the sea, the waters of the great deep; who made the depths of the sea a way for the redeemed to pass over?

    Isaiah 51:11 The ransomed of Yahweh will return and come with singing to Zion; and perpetual joy will be on their heads. They will obtain gladness and joy. Sorrow and sighing will flee away.

    Isaiah 51:12 “I, even I, am He who comforts you: who are you, that you are afraid of man who will die, and of the son of man who will be made as grass;

    Isaiah 51:13 and have forgotten Yahweh your Maker, who stretched forth the heavens, and laid the foundations of the earth; and fear continually all the day because of the fury of the oppressor, when he makes ready to destroy? And where is the fury of the oppressor?

    Isaiah 51:14 The captive exile will speedily be freed; and he will not die and go down into the pit, neither will his bread fail.

    Isaiah 51:15 For I am Yahweh your God, who stirs up the sea, so that its waves roar: Yahweh of Armies is His name.

    Isaiah 51:16 I have put My words in your mouth, and have covered you in the shadow of My hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and tell Zion, ‘You are My people.’”

    Isaiah 51:17 Awake, awake, stand up, Jerusalem, that have drunk at the hand of Yahweh the cup of His wrath; you have drunken the bowl of the cup of staggering, and drained it.

    Isaiah 51:18 There is none to guide her among all the sons whom she has brought forth; neither is there any who takes her by the hand among all the sons who she has brought up.

    Isaiah 51:19 These two things have happened to you. Who will bemoan you? Desolation and destruction, and the famine and the sword; how will I comfort you?

    Isaiah 51:20 Your sons have fainted, they lie at the head of all the streets, as an antelope in a net; they are full of the wrath of Yahweh, the rebuke of your God.

    Isaiah 51:21 Therefore hear now this, you afflicted, and drunken, but not with wine:

    Isaiah 51:22 Thus says your Lord Yahweh, and your God who pleads the cause of His people, “behold, I have taken out of Your hand the cup of staggering, even the bowl of the cup of My wrath; you will no longer drink it again:

    Isaiah 51:23 and I will put it into the hand of those who afflict you, who have said to your soul, ‘bow down, that we may walk over you;’ and you have laid your back as the ground, and as the street, to those who walk over.”

    Chapter 52

    Isaiah 52:1 Awake, awake, put on your strength, Zion; put on your beautiful garments, Jerusalem, the holy city: for henceforth there will no longer come into you the uncircumcised and the unclean.

    Isaiah 52:2 Shake yourself from the dust! Arise, sit up, Jerusalem! Release yourself from the bonds of your neck, captive daughter of Zion!

    Isaiah 52:3 For thus says Yahweh, “you were sold for nothing; and you will be redeemed without money.”

    Isaiah 52:4 For thus says the Lord Yahweh, “My people went down at the first into Egypt to live there: and the Assyrian has oppressed them without cause.

    Isaiah 52:5 “Now therefore, what do I do here,” says Yahweh, “seeing that My people are taken away for nothing? Those who rule over them mock,” says Yahweh, “and My name continually all day is blasphemed.

    Isaiah 52:6 Therefore My people will know My name. Therefore, they will know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, it is I.”

    Isaiah 52:7 How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of good, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “your God reigns!”

    Isaiah 52:8 The voice of your watchmen! They lift up the voice, together do they sing; for they will see eye to eye, when Yahweh returns to Zion.

    Isaiah 52:9 Break forth into joy, sing together, you waste places of Jerusalem; for Yahweh has comforted His people, He has redeemed Jerusalem.

    Isaiah 52:10 Yahweh has made bare His holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.

    Isaiah 52:11 Depart, depart, go out from there, touch no unclean thing! Go out of the midst of her! Cleanse yourselves, you who bear the vessels of Yahweh.

    Isaiah 52:12 For you will not go out in haste, neither will you go by flight: for Yahweh will go before you; and the God of Israel will be your rear guard.

    Isaiah 52:13 Behold, My servant will deal wisely, He will be exalted and lifted up, and will be very high.

    Isaiah 52:14 Like as many were astonished at you (His appearance was marred more than any man, and His form more than the sons of men),

    Isaiah 52:15 so will He sprinkle many nations; kings will shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them will they see; and that which they had not heard will they understand.

    Chapter 53

    Isaiah 53:1 Who has believed our message? To whom has the arm of Yahweh been revealed?

    Isaiah 53:2 For He grew up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of dry ground. He has no good looks or majesty. When we see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

    Isaiah 53:3 He was despised, and rejected by men; a man of suffering, and acquainted with disease. He was despised as one from whom men hide their face; and we did not respect him.

    Isaiah 53:4 Surely, He has borne our sickness, and carried our suffering; yet we considered him plagued, struck by God, and afflicted.

    Isaiah 53:5 But He was pierced for our transgressions. He was crushed for our iniquities. The punishment that brought our peace was on him; and by His wounds we are healed.

    Isaiah 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray. Everyone has turned to his own way; and Yahweh has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

    Isaiah 53:7 He was oppressed, yet when He was afflicted, He did not open His mouth. As a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and as a sheep that before its shearers is mute, so He did not open His mouth.

    Isaiah 53:8 He was taken away by oppression and judgment; and as for His generation, who considered that He was cut off out of the land of the living and stricken for the disobedience of My people?

    Isaiah 53:9 They made His grave with the wicked and with a rich man in His death; although He had done no violence, neither was any deceit in His mouth.

    Isaiah 53:10 Yet it pleased Yahweh to bruise Him. He has caused Him to suffer. When you make His soul an offering for sin, He will see His children. He will prolong His days, and the pleasure of Yahweh will prosper in His hand.

    Isaiah 53:11 After the suffering of His soul, He will see the light and be satisfied. My Righteous Servant will justify many by knowing Him; and He will bear their iniquities.

    Isaiah 53:12 Therefore will I divide Him a portion with the great, and He will divide the spoil with the strong; because He poured out His soul to death and was numbered with the transgressors; yet He bore the sin of many and made intercession for the transgressors.

    Chapter 54

    Isaiah 54:1 “Sing, barren, you who did not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, you who did not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife,” says Yahweh.

    Isaiah 54:2 “Enlarge the place of your tent and let them stretch forth the curtains of your habitations; do not spare, lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes.

    Isaiah 54:3 For you will spread out on the right hand and on the left; and your seed will possess the nations and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.

    Isaiah 54:4 “Do not be afraid; for you will not be ashamed: neither be confounded; for you will not be disappointed: for you will forget the shame of your youth; and the reproach of your widowhood you will remember no longer.

    Isaiah 54:5 For your Maker is your Husband; Yahweh of Armies is His name: and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; the God of the whole earth will He be called.

    Isaiah 54:6 For Yahweh has called you as a wife forsaken and grieved in spirit, even a wife of youth, when she is cast off,” says your God.

    Isaiah 54:7 “For a small moment have I forsaken you; but with great mercies will I gather you.

    Isaiah 54:8 In overflowing wrath I hid My face from you for a moment; but with perpetual lovingkindness will I have mercy on you,” says Yahweh your Redeemer.

    Isaiah 54:9 “For this is like the waters of Noah to me; for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah will no longer go over the earth, so have I sworn that I will not be angry with you, nor rebuke you.

    Isaiah 54:10 For the mountains may depart, and the hills be removed; but My lovingkindness will not depart from you, neither will My covenant of peace be removed,” says Yahweh who has mercy on you.

    Isaiah 54:11 “You afflicted, tossed with storms, and not comforted, behold, I will set your stones in beautiful colors, and lay your foundations with sapphires.

    Isaiah 54:12 I will make your pinnacles of rubies, and your gates of sparkling jewels, and all your walls of precious stones.

    Isaiah 54:13 All your children will be taught of Yahweh; and great will be the peace of your children.

    Isaiah 54:14 In righteousness you will be established: you will be far from oppression, for you will not be afraid; and from terror, for it will not come near you.

    Isaiah 54:15 Behold, they may gather together, but not by me: whoever will gather together against you will fall because of you.

    Isaiah 54:16 “Behold, I have created the smith who blows the fire of coals and brings forth a weapon for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.

    Isaiah 54:17 No weapon that is formed against you will prevail; and you will condemn every tongue that rises against you in judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of Yahweh, and their righteousness which is of me,” says Yahweh.

    Chapter 55

    Isaiah 55:1 “Come, everyone who thirsts, to the waters! Come, you who have no money, buy, and eat! Yes, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.

    Isaiah 55:2 Why do you spend money for that which is not bread? And your labor for that which does not satisfy? Listen diligently to me, and eat you that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.

    Isaiah 55:3 Turn your ear, and come to Me; hear, and your soul will live: and I will make a perpetual covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.

    Isaiah 55:4 Behold, I have given him for a witness to the peoples, a leader and commander to the peoples.

    Isaiah 55:5 Behold, you will call a nation that you do not know; and a nation that did not know you will run to you, because of Yahweh your God, and for the Holy One of Israel; for He has glorified you.”

    Isaiah 55:6 Seek Yahweh while He may be found; call you on Him while He is near:

    Isaiah 55:7 let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to Yahweh, and He will have mercy on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.

    Isaiah 55:8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways,” says Yahweh.

    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.

    Isaiah 55:10 For as the rain comes down and the snow from the heavens, and does not return there, but waters the earth, and makes it bring forth and bud, and gives seed to the sower and bread to the eater;

    Isaiah 55:11 so will My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it will not return to Me void, but it will accomplish that which I please, and it will prosper in the thing I sent it to do.

    Isaiah 55:12 For you will go out with joy and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills will break forth before you into singing; and all the trees of the fields will clap their hands.

    Isaiah 55:13 Instead of the thorn will come up the fir tree; and instead of the brier will come up the myrtle tree: and it will be to Yahweh for a name, for an perpetual sign that will not be cut off.”

    Chapter 56

    Isaiah 56:1 Thus says Yahweh, “keep justice, and do righteousness; for My salvation is near to come, and My righteousness to be revealed.

    Isaiah 56:2 Blessed is the man who does this, and the son of man who holds it fast; who keeps the Sabbath from profaning it, and keeps his hand from doing any evil.”

    Isaiah 56:3 Neither let the foreigner, who has joined himself to Yahweh, speak, saying, “Yahweh will surely separate me from His people”; neither let the eunuch say, “Behold, I am a dry tree.”

    Isaiah 56:4 For thus says Yahweh, “to the eunuchs who keep My Sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and hold fast My covenant:

    Isaiah 56:5 to them I will give in My house and within My walls a memorial and a name better than of sons and of daughters; I will give them a perpetual name, that will not be cut off.

    Isaiah 56:6 Also the foreigners who join themselves to Yahweh, to minister to him, and to love the name of Yahweh, to be His servants, everyone who keeps the Sabbath from profaning it, and holds fast My covenant;

    Isaiah 56:7 even them will I bring to My holy mountain, and make them joyful in My house of prayer: their ascension offerings and their sacrifices will be accepted on My altar; for My house will be called a house of prayer for all peoples.”

    Isaiah 56:8 The Lord Yahweh, who gathers the outcasts of Israel, says, “yet will I gather others to him, besides his own who are gathered.”

    Isaiah 56:9 All you beasts of the field, come to devour, all you beasts in the forest.

    Isaiah 56:10 His watchmen are blind, they are all without knowledge; they are all mute dogs, they cannot bark; dreaming, lying down, loving to slumber.

    Isaiah 56:11 Yes, the dogs are greedy, they can never have enough; and these are shepherds who cannot understand: they have all turned to their own way, each one to his gain, from every quarter.

    Isaiah 56:12 “Come,” they say, “I will get wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and tomorrow will be as this day, great beyond measure.”

    Chapter 57

    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.

    Isaiah 57:2 He enters into peace; they rest in their beds, each one who walks in his uprightness.

    Isaiah 57:3 “But draw near here, you sons of the sorceress, the seed of the adulterer and the prostitute.

    Isaiah 57:4 Against whom do you sport yourselves? Against whom do you make a wide mouth, and stick out your tongue? Are not you children of disobedience, a seed of falsehood,

    Isaiah 57:5 you who inflame yourselves among the oaks, under every green tree; who kill the children in the valleys, under the clefts of the rocks?

    Isaiah 57:6 Among the smooth stones of the valley is your portion; they, they are your lot; you have even poured a drink offering to them. You have offered an offering. Will I be appeased for these things?

    Isaiah 57:7 On a high and lofty mountain you have set your bed; there also you went up to offer sacrifice.

    Isaiah 57:8 Behind the doors and the posts you have set up your memorial: for you have uncovered to someone besides 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.

    Isaiah 57:9 You went to the king with oil, and increased your perfumes, and sent your ambassadors far off, and debased yourself even to Sheol.

    Isaiah 57:10 You were wearied with the length of your way; yet you did not say, ‘it is in vain.’ You found a reviving of your strength; therefore, you weren’t faint.

    Isaiah 57:11 “Of whom have you been afraid and in fear, that you lie, and have not remembered Me, nor laid it to your heart? Have I not been silent for a long time, and you do not fear Me?

    Isaiah 57:12 I will declare your righteousness; and as for your works, they will not profit you.

    Isaiah 57:13 When you cry, let those who you have gathered deliver you; but the wind will take them, a breath will carry them all away: but he who takes refuge in Me will possess the land, and will inherit My holy mountain.”

    Isaiah 57:14 He will say, “cast up, cast up, prepare the way, take up the stumbling-block out of the way of My people.”

    Isaiah 57:15 For thus says the high and lofty One who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also who is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite.

    Isaiah 57:16 For I will not contend always, neither will I continually be angry; for the spirit would faint before Me, and the souls who I have made.

    Isaiah 57:17 For the iniquity of his covetousness I was angry, and struck him; I hid Myself and was angry; and he went on backsliding in the way of his heart.

    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.

    Isaiah 57:19 I create the fruit of the lips: peace, peace, to him who is far off and to him who is near,” says Yahweh; “and I will heal them.”

    Isaiah 57:20 But the wicked are like the troubled sea; for it cannot rest and its waters cast up mire and dirt.

    Isaiah 57:21 “There is no peace,” says my God, “for the wicked.”

    Chapter 58

    Isaiah 58:1 “Cry aloud, do not spare, lift up your voice like a trumpet, and declare to My people their disobedience, and to the house of Jacob their sins.

    Isaiah 58:2 Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know My ways: as a nation that did righteousness, and did not forsake the ordinance of their God, they ask of me righteous judgments; they delight to draw near to God.

    Isaiah 58:3 ‘Why have we fasted,’ they say, ‘and you do not see? Why have we afflicted our soul, and you take no knowledge?’ “Behold, in the day of your fast you find pleasure, and exact all your labors.

    Isaiah 58:4 Behold, you fast for strife and contention, and to strike with the fist of wickedness: you do not fast this day to make your voice to be heard on high.

    Isaiah 58:5 Is such the fast that I have chosen? The day for a man to afflict his soul? Is it to bow down his head as a rush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? Will you call this a fast, and an acceptable day to Yahweh?

    Isaiah 58:6 “Is this not the fast that I have chosen: to release the bonds of wickedness, to undo the bands of the yoke, and to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke?

    Isaiah 58:7 Is it not to distribute your bread to the hungry, and that you bring the poor who are cast out to your house? When you see the naked, that you cover him; and that you not hide yourself from your own flesh?

    Isaiah 58:8 Then your light will break forth as the morning, and your healing will spring forth speedily; and your righteousness will go before you; the glory of Yahweh will be your rear guard.

    Isaiah 58:9 Then you will call, and Yahweh will answer; you will cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.’ “If you take away from the midst of you the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking wickedly;

    Isaiah 58:10 and if you draw out your soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul: then your light will rise in darkness, and your obscurity be as the noonday;

    Isaiah 58:11 and Yahweh will guide you continually, and satisfy your soul in dry places, and make strong your bones; and you will be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.

    Isaiah 58:12 Those who will be out from you will build the old waste places; you will raise up the foundations of many generations; and you will be called the repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.

    Isaiah 58:13 “If you turn away your foot from the Sabbath, from doing your pleasure on My holy day; and call the Sabbath a delight, and the holy of Yahweh honorable; and will honor it, not doing your own ways, nor finding your own pleasure, nor speaking your own words:

    Isaiah 58:14 then you will delight yourself in Yahweh; and I will make you to ride on the high places of the land; and I will feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father:” for the mouth of Yahweh has spoken it.

    Chapter 59

    Isaiah 59:1 Behold, Yahweh’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy that it cannot hear:

    Isaiah 59:2 but your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear.

    Isaiah 59:3 For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue mutters wickedness.

    Isaiah 59:4 None sues in righteousness, and none pleads in truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.

    Isaiah 59:5 They hatch adders’ eggs and weave the spider’s web: he who eats of their eggs dies; and that which is crushed breaks out into a viper.

    Isaiah 59:6 Their webs will not become garments, neither will they cover themselves with their works: their works are works of iniquity, and the act of violence is in their hands.

    Isaiah 59:7 Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; desolation and destruction are in their pathways.

    Isaiah 59:8 The way of peace they do not know; and there is no justice in their courses: they have made their way of life twisted; whoever traipses that way does not know peace.

    Isaiah 59:9 Therefore is justice far away from us, neither does righteousness overtake us: we look for light, but behold, darkness; for brightness, but we walk in obscurity.

    Isaiah 59:10 We grope for the wall like the blind; yes, we grope as those who have no eyes: we stumble at noonday as in the twilight; among those who are desolate we are dead men.

    Isaiah 59:11 We roar all like bears, and moan bitterly like doves: we look for justice, but there is none; for salvation, but it is far away from us.

    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:

    Isaiah 59:13 transgressing and denying Yahweh, and turning away from following our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving, and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.

    Isaiah 59:14 Justice is turned away backward, and righteousness stands afar off; for truth is fallen in the street, and uprightness cannot enter.

    Isaiah 59:15 Yes, truth is lacking; and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey. Yahweh saw it, and it displeased him that there was no justice.

    Isaiah 59:16 He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore, his own arm brought salvation to him; and his righteousness, it upheld him.

    Isaiah 59:17 He put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation on his head; and He put on garments of vengeance for clothing and was clad with zeal as a mantle.

    Isaiah 59:18 According to their deeds, accordingly He will repay, wrath to His adversaries, recompense to His enemies; to the islands He will repay recompense.

    Isaiah 59:19 So will they fear the name of Yahweh from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun; for He will come as a rushing stream, which the breath of Yahweh drives.

    Isaiah 59:20 “A Redeemer will come to Zion, and to those who turn from disobedience in Jacob,” says Yahweh.

    Isaiah 59:21 “As for me, this is My covenant with them,” says Yahweh. “My Spirit who is on you, and My words which I have put in your mouth, will 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 Yahweh, “from now on and perpetually.”

    Chapter 60

    Isaiah 60:1 “Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of Yahweh is risen on you.

    Isaiah 60:2 For, behold, darkness will cover the earth, and gross darkness the peoples; but Yahweh will arise on you, and His glory will be seen on you.

    Isaiah 60:3 Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.

    Isaiah 60:4 “Lift up your eyes all around, and see: they all gather themselves together, they come to you; your sons will come from far, and your daughters will be carried in the arms.

    Isaiah 60:5 Then you will see and be radiant, and your heart will thrill and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea will be turned to you, the wealth of the nations will come into you.

    Isaiah 60:6 The multitude of camels will cover you, the dromedaries of Midian and Ephah; all they from Sheba will come; they will bring gold and frankincense and will proclaim the praises of Yahweh.

    Isaiah 60:7 All the flocks of Kedar will be gathered together to you, the rams of Nebaioth will minister to you; they will come up with acceptance on My altar; and I will glorify the house of My glory.

    Isaiah 60:8 “Who are these who fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows?

    Isaiah 60:9 Surely the islands will wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring your sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, for the name of Yahweh your God, and for the Holy One of Israel, because he has glorified you.

    Isaiah 60:10 “Foreigners will build up your walls, and their kings will minister to you: for in My wrath, I struck you, but in My favor have I had mercy on you.

    Isaiah 60:11 Your gates also will be open continually; they will not be shut day, nor night; that men may bring to you the wealth of the nations, and their kings led captive.

    Isaiah 60:12 For that nation and kingdom that will not serve you will perish; yes, those nations will be utterly wasted.

    Isaiah 60:13 “The glory of Lebanon will come to you, the fir tree, the pine, and the box tree together, to beautify the place of My sanctuary; and I will make the place of My feet glorious.

    Isaiah 60:14 The sons of those who afflicted you will come bending to you; and all those who despised you will bow themselves down at the soles of your feet; and they will call you the city of Yahweh, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.

    Isaiah 60:15 “Whereas you have been forsaken and hated, so that no man passed through you, I will make you a perpetual excellency, a joy of many generations.

    Isaiah 60:16 You will also drink the milk of the nations and will nurse from royal breasts; and you will know that I, Yahweh, am your Savior, and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.

    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 peace your overseers, and righteousness your taskmasters.

    Isaiah 60:18 Violence will no longer be heard in your land, desolation nor destruction within your borders; but you will call your walls salvation, and your gates praise.

    Isaiah 60:19 The sun will no longer be your light by day; neither for brightness will the moon give light to you: but Yahweh will be to you an infinite light, and your God your glory.

    Isaiah 60:20 Your sun will not go down, neither will your moon withdraw itself; for Yahweh will be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning will be ended.

    Isaiah 60:21 Your people also will all be righteous; they will inherit the land age-lasting, the branch of My planting, the work of My hands, that I may be glorified.

    Isaiah 60:22 The little one will become a thousand, and the small one a strong nation; I, Yahweh, in its own time will expedite it.”

    Chapter 61

    Isaiah 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord Yahweh is on me; because Yahweh has anointed me to preach good news to the humble. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to those who are bound;

    Isaiah 61:2 to proclaim the year of Yahweh’s favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn;

    Isaiah 61:3 to appoint to those who mourn in Zion, to give to them a garland 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 Yahweh, that He may be glorified.

    Isaiah 61:4 They will build the old wastes, they will raise up the former desolations, and they will repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.

    Isaiah 61:5 Strangers will stand and feed your flocks, and foreigners will be your plowmen and your vinedressers.

    Isaiah 61:6 But you will be named the priests of Yahweh; men will call you the ministers of our God: you will eat the wealth of the nations, and you will boast in their glory.

    Isaiah 61:7 Instead of your shame you will have double; and instead of dishonor they will rejoice in their portion: therefore, in their land they will possess double; perpetual joy will be on them.

    Isaiah 61:8 “For I, Yahweh, love justice, I hate robbery with iniquity; and I will give them their recompense in truth, and I will make a perpetual covenant with them.

    Isaiah 61:9 Their seed will be known among the nations, and their offspring among the peoples; all who see them will acknowledge them, that they are the seed which Yahweh has blessed.”

    Isaiah 61:10 I will greatly rejoice in Yahweh, my soul will be joyful in my God; for He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

    Isaiah 61:11 For as the earth brings forth its bud, and as the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so, the Lord Yahweh will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.

    Chapter 62

    Isaiah 62:1 For Zion’s sake I will not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a lamp that burns.

    Isaiah 62:2 The nations will see your righteousness, and all kings your glory, and you will be called by a new name, which the mouth of Yahweh will name.

    Isaiah 62:3 You will also be a crown of beauty in the hand of Yahweh, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.

    Isaiah 62:4 You will no longer be termed Forsaken; neither will your land any longer be termed Desolate: but you will be called Hephzibah, and your land Beulah; for Yahweh delights in you, and your land will be married.

    Isaiah 62:5 For as a young man marries a virgin, so your sons will marry you; and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so your God will rejoice over you.

    Isaiah 62:6 I have set watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem; they will never hold their peace, day nor night: you who call on Yahweh, take no rest,

    Isaiah 62:7 and give Him no rest, until He establishes, and until He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.

    Isaiah 62:8 Yahweh has sworn by his right hand, and by the arm of his strength, “surely I will no longer give your grain to be food for your enemies; and foreigners will not drink your new wine, for which you have labored:

    Isaiah 62:9 but those who have garnered it will eat it, and praise Yahweh; and those who have gathered it will drink it in the courts of My sanctuary.”

    Isaiah 62:10 Go through, go through the gates! Prepare the way of the people! Build up, build up the central lane! Gather out the stones! Lift up a banner for the peoples.

    Isaiah 62:11 Behold, Yahweh has proclaimed to the farthest parts of the earth, “say to the daughter of Zion, ‘behold, your salvation comes. Behold, His reward is with Him, and His recompense before Him.’”

    Isaiah 62:12 They will call them the holy people, the redeemed of Yahweh: and you will be called Sought out, a city not forsaken.

    Chapter 63

    Isaiah 63:1 Who is this who comes from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? This who is glorious in his clothing, marching in the greatness of his strength? “It is I who speak in righteousness, mighty to save.”

    Isaiah 63:2 Why are you red in your clothing, and your garments like him who treads in the wine vat?

    Isaiah 63:3 “I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the peoples there was no man with me: yes, I trod them in My anger, and trampled them in My wrath; and their lifeblood is sprinkled on My garments, and I have stained all My clothing.

    Isaiah 63:4 For the day of vengeance was in My heart, and the year of My redeemed has come.

    Isaiah 63:5 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 wrath, it upheld me.

    Isaiah 63:6 I trod down the peoples in My anger, and made them drunk in My wrath, and I poured out their lifeblood on the earth.”

    Isaiah 63:7 I will make mention of the lovingkindnesses of Yahweh and the praises of Yahweh, according to all that Yahweh has bestowed on us, and the great goodness toward the house of Israel, which He has bestowed on them according to His mercies, and according to the multitude of His lovingkindnesses.

    Isaiah 63:8 For He said, “surely, they are My people, children who will not deal falsely:” so He was their Savior.

    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.

    Isaiah 63:10 But they rebelled, and grieved His Holy Spirit: therefore, He was turned to be their enemy, and He Himself fought against them.

    Isaiah 63:11 Then He remembered the days of old, Moses and His people, saying, where is He who brought them up out of the sea with the shepherds of His flock? Where is He who put His Holy Spirit within him?

    Isaiah 63:12 Who caused His glorious arm to go at the right hand of Moses? Who divided the waters before them, to make Himself an infinite name?

    Isaiah 63:13 Who led them through the depths, as a horse in the wilderness, so that they did not stumble?

    Isaiah 63:14 As the livestock that go down into the valley, the Spirit of Yahweh caused them to rest; so, You led Your people, to make Yourself a glorious name.

    Isaiah 63:15 Look down from heaven, and see from the habitation of Your holiness and of Your glory: where are Your zeal and Your mighty acts? The yearning of Your heart and Your compassion is held back from me.

    Isaiah 63:16 For You are our Father, though Abraham does not know us, and Israel does not acknowledge us: You, Yahweh, are our Father; our Redeemer before the age is Your name.

    Isaiah 63:17 O Yahweh, why do you make us to err from Your ways, and harden our heart away from Your reverence? Return for Your servants’ sake, the tribes of Your inheritance.

    Isaiah 63:18 Your holy people possessed it but a little while: our adversaries have trodden down Your sanctuary.

    Isaiah 63:19 We have become as they over whom You never reigned over, as those who were not called by Your name.

    Chapter 64

    Isaiah 64:1 Oh that you would tear the heavens, that you would come down, that the mountains might quake at Your presence,

    Isaiah 64:2 as when fire kindles the brushwood, and the fire causes the waters to boil; to make Your name known to Your adversaries, that the nations may tremble at Your presence!

    Isaiah 64:3 When you did awesome things which we did not look for, you came down the mountains quaked at Your presence.

    Isaiah 64:4 For from ancient times men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither has the eye seen a God besides You, who works for him who waits for him.

    Isaiah 64:5 You meet him who rejoices and works righteousness, those who remember You in Your ways. Behold, You were angry, and we sinned. We have been in sin constantly; and will we be saved?

    Isaiah 64:6 For we have all become as one who is unclean, and all our righteousness is as a polluted garment: and we all fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away.

    Isaiah 64:7 There is none who calls on Your name, who stirs up himself to take hold of you; for you have hidden Your face from us and have consumed us by means of our iniquities.

    Isaiah 64:8 But now, Yahweh, you are our Father; we are the clay, and You our potter; and we all are the work of Your hand.

    Isaiah 64:9 Do not be furious, Yahweh, neither remember iniquity perpetually: see, look, we beg You, we are all Your people.

    Isaiah 64:10 Your holy cities are become a wilderness, Zion has become a wilderness, Jerusalem a desolation.

    Isaiah 64:11 Our holy and our beautiful house, where our fathers praised You, is burned with fire; and all our pleasant places are laid waste.

    Isaiah 64:12 Will You refrain Yourself for these things, Yahweh? Will You hold Your peace, and afflict us very severely?

    Chapter 65

    Isaiah 65:1 “I am inquired of by those who did not ask; I am found by those who did not seek Me: I said, see Me, see Me, to a nation that was not called by My name.

    Isaiah 65:2 I have spread out My hands all day to a rebellious people, who walk in a way that is not good, after their own thoughts;

    Isaiah 65:3 a people who provoke Me to My face continually, sacrificing in gardens, and burning incense on bricks;

    Isaiah 65:4 who sit among the graves, and lodge in the secret places; who eat pig’s flesh, and broth of abominable things is in their vessels;

    Isaiah 65:5 who say, stand by yourself, do not come near to me, for I am holier than you. These are a smoke in My nose, a fire that burns all day.

    Isaiah 65:6 “Behold, it is written before Me: I will not keep silence, but will recompense, yes, I will recompense into their bosom,

    Isaiah 65:7 your own iniquities, and the iniquities of your fathers together,” says Yahweh, “who have burned incense on the mountains, and blasphemed Me on the hills; therefore will I first measure their work into their bosom.”

    Isaiah 65:8 Thus says Yahweh, “as the new wine is found in the cluster, and one says, ‘do not destroy it, for a blessing is in it:’ so will I do for My servants’ sake, that I may not destroy them all.

    Isaiah 65:9 I will bring forth a seed out of Jacob, and out of Judah an inheritor of My mountains; and My chosen will inherit it, and My servants will dwell there.

    Isaiah 65:10 Sharon will be a fold of flocks, and the valley of Achor a place for herds to lie down in, for My people who have sought Me.

    Isaiah 65:11 “But you who forsake Yahweh, who forget My holy mountain, who prepare a table for Fortune, and who fill up mixed wine to Destiny;

    Isaiah 65:12 I will destine you to the sword, and you will all bow down to the slaughter; because when I called, you did not answer; when I spoke, you did not listen; but you did that which was evil in My eyes, and chose that in which I did not delight.”

    Isaiah 65:13 Therefore thus says the Lord Yahweh, “behold, My servants will eat, but you will be hungry; behold, My servants will drink, but you will be thirsty; behold, My servants will rejoice, but you will be disappointed;

    Isaiah 65:14 behold, My servants will sing for joy of heart, but you will cry for sorrow of heart, and will cry out for anguish of spirit.

    Isaiah 65:15 You will leave your name for a curse to My chosen; and the Lord Yahweh will kill you; and He will call His servants by another name:

    Isaiah 65:16 so that he who blesses himself in the land will bless himself in the God of truth; and he who swears in the land will swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are hidden from My eyes.

    Isaiah 65:17 “For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former things will not be remembered, nor come into mind.

    Isaiah 65:18 But you be glad and rejoice always in that which I create; for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy.

    Isaiah 65:19 I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in My people; and there will be heard in her no longer the voice of weeping and the voice of crying.

    Isaiah 65:20 “There will be no longer there an infant of days, nor an old man who has not filled his days; for the child will die one hundred years old, and the sinner being one hundred years old will be accursed.

    Isaiah 65:21 They will build houses, and inhabit them; and they will plant vineyards, and eat their fruit.

    Isaiah 65:22 They will not build, and another inhabit; they will not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree will be the days of My people, and My chosen will long enjoy the work of their hands.

    Isaiah 65:23 They will not labor in vain, nor bring forth for calamity; for they are the seed of the blessed of Yahweh, and their offspring with them.

    Isaiah 65:24 It will happen that, before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.

    Isaiah 65:25 The wolf and the lamb will feed together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox; and dust will be the serpent’s food. They will not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain,” says Yahweh.

    Chapter 66

    Isaiah 66:1 Thus says Yahweh, “Heaven is My throne, and the earth is My footstool: what kind of house will you build to Me? And what place will be My rest?

    Isaiah 66:2 For all these things has My hand made, and so all these things came to be,” says Yahweh: “but to this man will I look, even to him who is poor and of a contrite spirit, and who trembles at My word.

    Isaiah 66:3 He who kills an ox is as he who kills a man; he who sacrifices a lamb, as he who breaks a dog’s neck; he who offers an offering, as he who offers pig’s blood; he who burns frankincense, as he who blesses an idol. Yes, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delights in their abominations:

    Isaiah 66:4 I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears on them; because when I called, no one answered; when I spoke, they did not listen; but they did that which was evil in My eyes, and chose that in which I did not delight.”

    Isaiah 66:5 Hear the word of Yahweh, you who tremble at His word: “your brothers who hate you, who cast you out for My name’s sake, have said, ‘let Yahweh be glorified, but He will be seen for your joy;’ but it is those who will be disgraced.

    Isaiah 66:6 A voice of tumult from the city, a voice from the temple, a voice of Yahweh that renders recompense to His enemies.

    Isaiah 66:7 “Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she brought forth a male son.

    Isaiah 66:8 Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Will a country be born in one day? Will a nation be brought forth at once? For as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.

    Isaiah 66:9 Will I bring to birth, and not cause to bring forth?” says Yahweh: “will I who cause to bring forth shut the womb?” Says your God.

    Isaiah 66:10 “Rejoice with Jerusalem, and be glad for her, all you who love her: rejoice for joy with her, all you who mourn over her;

    Isaiah 66:11 that you may nurse and be satisfied at the comforting breasts; that you may drink deeply, and be delighted with the abundance of her glory.”

    Isaiah 66:12 For thus says Yahweh, “Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the nations like an overflowing stream: and you will nurse. You will be carried on her side and will be bounced on her knees.

    Isaiah 66:13 As one whom his mother comforts so will I comfort you; and you will be comforted in Jerusalem.”

    Isaiah 66:14 You will see it, and your heart will rejoice, and your bones will flourish like the tender grass: and the hand of Yahweh will be known toward His servants; and He will have indignation against His enemies.

    Isaiah 66:15 For, behold, Yahweh will come with fire, and His chariots will be like the whirlwind; to render His wrath with fierceness, and His rebuke with flames of fire.

    Isaiah 66:16 For by fire will Yahweh execute judgment, and by His sword, on all flesh: and the slain of Yahweh will be many.

    Isaiah 66:17 “Those who sanctify themselves and purify themselves to go to the gardens, behind one in the midst, eating pig’s flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, they will come to an end together,” says Yahweh.

    Isaiah 66:18 “For I know their works and their thoughts: the time comes, that I will gather all nations and languages; and they will come and will see My glory.

    Isaiah 66:19 “I will set a sign among them, and I will send such as escape of them to the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, who draw the bow, to Tubal and Javan, to the islands afar off, who have not heard My fame, neither have seen My glory; and they will declare My glory among the nations.

    Isaiah 66:20 They will bring all your brothers out of all the nations for a grain offering to Yahweh, on horses, and in chariots, and in covered wagons, and on mules, and on dromedaries, to My holy mountain Jerusalem, says Yahweh, as the children of Israel bring their grain offering in a clean vessel into the house of Yahweh.

    Isaiah 66:21 Of them I will indeed capture them for priests and for Levites,” says Yahweh.

    Isaiah 66:22 “For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, will remain before Me,” says Yahweh, “so your seed and your name will remain.

    Isaiah 66:23 It will happen, that from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, will all flesh come to worship before Me,” says Yahweh.

    Isaiah 66:24 “They will go forth and look on the corpses of the men who have transgressed against Me: for their worm will not die, neither will their fire be quenched; and they will exist repulsive to all flesh.”
