Neither be ye borne down by their revilings.
8 For the moth shall consume them, like a garment;

And the worm shall eat them, like wool:
But my righteousness shall endure for ever;
And my salvation to the age of ages.

9 Awake, awake, clothe thyself with strength, O arm

of JEHOVAH! Awake, as in the days of old, the ancient generations. Art thou not the same that smote Rahab, that wounded

the dragon ? 10 Art thou not the same that dried up the sea, the waters

of the great deep? That made the depths of the sea a path for the redeem

ed to pass through?
11 Thus shall the ransomed of JEHOVAH return,

And come to Sion with loud acclamation:
And everlasting gladness shall crown their heads;
Joy and gladness shall they obtain,

And sorrow and sighing shall flee away. 12 I, even I, am he that comforteth you: Who art thou, that thou shouldst fear wretched man,

that dieth;
And the son of man, that shall become as the grass ?
13 And shouldst forget JEHOVAH thy maker,

Who stretched out the heavens, and founded the earth;
And shouldst every day be in continued fear
Because of the fury of the oppressor,
As if he were just ready to destroy ?

And where now is the fury of the oppressor ? 14 He marcheth on with speed, who cometh to set free the

captive;
That he may not die in the dungeon,

And that his bread may not fail. 15 For I am JEHOVAH thy God; He, who stilleth at once the sea, though the waves there

of roar;
JEHOVAH God of Hosts is his name.
16 I have put my words in thy mouth;

And with the shadow of my hand have I covered thee:
To stretch out the heavens, and to lay the foundations

of the earth;
And to say unto Sion, Thou art my people.

17 Rouse thyself, rouse thyself up; arise, 0 Jerusalem! Who hast drunken from the hand of JEHOVAH the cup

of his fury: The dregs of the cup of trembling thou hast drunken,

thou hast wrung them out. 18 There is not one to lead her, of all the sons which she

hath brought forth; Neither is there one to support her by the hand, of all

the sons which she hath educated. 19 These two things have befallen thee; who shall bemoan

thee?
Desolation, and destruction; the famine, and the sword;

who shall comfort thee?
20 Thy sons lie astounded; they are cast down,

At the head of all the streets, like the oryx taken in

the toils; Drenched to the full with the fury of JEHOVAH, with

the rebuke of thy God. 21 Wherefore hear now this, O thou afflicted daughter;

And thou drunken, but not with wine.
22 Thus saith thy Lord JEHOVAH;

And thy God, who avengeth his people :
Behold, I take from thy hand the cup of trembling;
The dregs of the cup of my fury;

Thou shalt drink of it again no more.
23 But I will put it into the hand of them who oppress

thee;
Who say to thee, Bow down thy body, that we may go

over :
And thou layedst down thy back, as the ground;
And as the street, to them that pass along.

CHAP. I AWAKE, awake; be clothed with thy strength, O Sion:

Clothe thyself with thy glorious garments, 0 Jerusalem,

thou holy city! For no more shall enter into thee the uncircumcised and

the polluted. 2 Shake thyself from the dust, ascend thy lofty seat, O

Jerusalem: • Loose thyself from the bands of thy neck, O captive

daughter of Sion!

3 . For thus saith JEHOVAH:

For nought were ye sold;

And not with money shall ye be ransomed. 4. For thus saith the Lord JEHOVAH:

My people went down to Egypt, . At the first, to sojourn there;

And the Assyrian, at the last, hath oppressed them. 5 And now, what have I more to do, saith JEHOVAH, & Seeing that my people is taken away for nought; And they, that are lords over them, make their boast of

it, saith JEHOVAH; And continually every day is my name exposed to con

tempt? 6 Therefore shall my people know my name in that day : For I am he, JEHOVAH, that promised; and lo! here I

am!.

ng How beautiful appear on the mountains The feet of the joyful messenger; of him, that announc

eth peace! Of the joyful messenger of good tidings; of him, that

announceth salvation! Of him, that sayeth unto Sion, Thy God reigneth! 8 All thy watchmen lift up their voice; they shout together: For face to face shall they see, when JEHOVAH returneth

to Sion. 9 Burst forth into joy, shout together, ye ruins of Jerusa

- lem!
For JEHOVAH hath comforted his people ; he hath re-

deemed Israel. 10 JEHOVAH hath made bare his holy arm, in the sight of

all the nations ; And all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of

our God.

11 Depart, depart ye, go ye out from thence; touch no

polluted thing : Go ye out from the midst of her; be ye clean, ye that

bear the vessels of JEHOVAH!
12 Verily not in haste shall ye go forth; .

And not by flight shall ye march along:
For JEHOVAH shall march in your front:
And the God of Israel shall bring up your rear.

13 BEHOLD, my servant shall prosper ;
He shall be raised aloft, and magnified, and very highly

exalted.
14 As many were astonished at him;

(To such a degree was his countenance disfigured, more

than that of man;
And his form, more than the sons of men); '.
15 So shall he sprinkle many nations :

Before him shall kings shut their mouths;
For what was not before declared to them, they shall

see,
And what they had not heard they shall attentively con-

sider.

CHAP. 1 Who hath believed our report;
LIII. And to whom hath the arm of JEHOVAH been manifested?

2 For he groweth up in their sight like a tender sucker;

And like a root from a thirsty soil;
He hath no form, nor any beauty, that we should regard

him;
Nor is his countenance such that we should desire him.
3 Despised, nor accounted in the number of men;

A man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief;
As one that hideth his face from us:

He was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4 Surely our infirmities he hath borne ;

And our sorrows, he hath carried them:
Yet we thought him judicially striken;

Smitten of God, and afflicted. .
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions;
Was smitten for our iniquities:
The chastisement, by which our peace is effected, was

laid upon him;
And by his bruises we are healed.
6 We all of us like sheep have strayed ;

We have turned aside, every one to his own way;
And JEHOVAH hath made to light upon him the iniquity

of us all.
7 It was exacted, and he was made answerable ; and he

opened not his mouth :
As a lamb that is led to the slaughter,

And as a sheep before her shearers

Is dumb; so he opened not his mouth.
8 By an oppressive judgment he was taken off ;

And his manner of life who would declare?
For he was cut off from the land of the living;

For the transgression of my people he was smitten to death. 9 And his grave was appointed with the wicked;

But with the rich man was his tomb.
Although he had done no wrong,

Neither was there any guile in his mouth;
10 Yet it pleased JEHOVAH to crush him with affliction.

If his soul shall make a propitiatory sacrifice, .
He shall see a seed, which shall prolong their days,
And the gracious purpose of JEHOVAH shall prosper in

his hands.
11 Of the travail of his soul he shall see [the fruit], and be

satisfied : By the knowledge of him shall my servant justify many;

For the punishment of their iniquities he shall bear.
12 Therefore will I distribute to him the many for his

portion;
And the mighty people shall he share for his spoil:
Because he poured out his soul unto death;
And was numbered with the transgressors :
And he bare the sin of many;
And made intercession for the transgressors.

LIV.

CHAP. 1 SHOUT for joy, 0 thou barren, that didst not bear;

Break forth into joyful shouting, and exult, thou that

didst not travail: .
For more are the children of the desolate,

Than of the married woman, saith JEHOVAH.
2 Enlarge the place of thy tent;

And let the canopy of thy habitation be extended :
Spare not; lengthen thy cords,

And firmly fix thy stakes :
3 For on the right hand, and on the left, thou shalt burst

forth with increase;
And thy seed shall inherit the nations;

And they shall inhabit the desolate cities.
4 Fear not, for thou shalt not be confounded;

And blush not, for thou shalt not be brought to reproach:
