- And the inhabitants are to him as grasshoppers:
That extendeth the heavens, as a thin veil ;
And spreadeth them out, as a tent to dwell in : 23 That reduceth princes to nothing ;
That maketh the judges of the earth a mere inanity.
not be sown,
To whom then will ye liken me ?
And to whom shall I be equalled? saith the Holy One. • 26 Lift up your eyes on high;
And see, who hath created these.
ness of his power,
27 Wherefore sayest thou then, O Jacob,
And why speakest thou thus, O Israel ;
And my cause passeth unregarded by my God ?
That JEHOVAH is the everlasting God,
And that his understanding is unsearchable ?
And to the infirm he multiplieth force.
And the chosen youths shall stumble and fall :
CHAP. 1. Let the distant nations repair to me with new force
Let them draw near; then let them speak;
2 Who hath raised up the righteous man from the
And like the driven stubble before his bow? 3 He pursueth them; he passeth in safety;
By a way never trodden before with his feet. 4 Who hath performed, and made these things,
Calling the several generations from the beginning?
Ø The distant nations saw, and they were afraid ;
The remotest parts of the earth, and they were terrified.
They drew near, they came together ; 6 Every one assisted his neighbour,
And said to his brother, Be of good courage. 7 The carver encourageth the smith; He that smootheth with the hammer, him that smiteth
on the anvil ; Saying of the solder, It is good; And he fixeth the idol with nails, that it shall not move.
8 But thou, Israel, my servant ;
Thou, Jacob, whom I have chosen ;
The seed of Abraham, my friend : 9 Thou, whom I have led by the hand from the ends of
I have chosen thee, and I will not reject thee: 10 Fear not, for I am with thee;
Be not dismayed, for I am thy God.
I have even supported thee with my faithful right hand. 11 Behold, they, that were enraged against thee, shall be
ashamed and confounded;
They, that contended with thee, shall become as nothing,
and shall utterly perish. 12 Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even the
men that strove with thee: They shall become as nothing, and as mere nought,
even the men that opposed thee in battle. 13 For I am JEHOVAI thy God, that hold thee fast by thy
That say unto thee, Fear not; I am thy helper. 14 Fear not, thou worm Jacob; ye mortals of Israel ;
I am thy helper, saith JEHOVAH;
And thine avenger is the Holy One of Israel. 15 Behold, I have made thee a thrashing wain;
A new corn-drag armed with pointed teeth:
And reduce the hills to chaff: 16 Thou shalt winnow them, and the wind shall bear them
But thou shalt rejoice in JEHOVAH;
17 The poor and the needy seek for water, and there is
The God of Israel, I will not forsake them. 18 I will open in the high places rivers ;
And in the midst of the vallies, fountains :
And the dry ground streams of waters. 19 In the wilderness I will give the cedar;
The acacia, the myrtle, and the tree producing oil;
The pine, and the box together:
And may consider, and understand at once ;
Draw near, produce your cause, saith JEHOVAH: Produce these your mighty powers, saith the king of
22 Let them approach, and tell us the things that shall
happen: The things that shall first happen, what they are, let
them tell us; And we will consider them; and we shall know the event.
Or declare to us things to come hereafter;
Then shall we know that ye are Gods.
And your operation is less than nought:
25 I have raised up one from the north, and he shall
come; From the rising of the sun he shall invoke my name: And he shall trample on princes, like the mortar;
Even as the potter treadeth down the clay. 26 Who hath declared this from the beginning, that we
should know it? And beforehand, that we might say, The prediction is
true? There was not one, that foretold it; not one, that de
There was not one, that heard your words. 27 I first to Sion [give the word], Behold they are here; .
And to Jerusalem I give the messenger of glad tidings. 28 But I looked, and there was no man; And among the idols, and there was no one that gave
warning; 29 And I inquired of them, and [there was no one] that
could return an answer.
CHAP. 1 BEHOLD my servant, whom I will uphold;
My chosen, in whom my soul delighteth:
2 He shall not cry aloud, nor raise a clamour,
Nor cause his voice to be heard in the public places: 3 The bruised reed he shall not break;
And the dimly burning flax he shall not quench:
Until he hath firmly seated judgment in the earth :
5 Thus saith the God, even JEHOVAH,
Who created the heavens, and stretched them out;
And spirit to them that tread thereon: 6 I JEHOVAH have called thee for a righteous purpose; And I will take hold of thy hand, and will preserve
thee; And I will give thee for a covenant to the people, for a
light to the nations: 7 To open the eyes of the blind;
To bring the captive out of confinement;
And from the dungeon those that dwell in darkness. 8 I am JEHOVAH, that is my name;
And my glory will I not give to another,
Nor my praise to the graven images.
And new events I now declare :
10 Sing unto JEHOVAH a new song;
His praise, from the ends of the earth:
Ye distant sea-coasts, and ye that dwell therein: il Let the desert cry aloud, and the cities thereof;
The villages, and they that dwell in Kedar:
sound; Let them shout aloud from the top of the mountains : 12 Let them ascribe glory to JEHOVAH;
And among the distant nations make known his praise. 13 JEHOVAH shall march forth like a hero; Like a mighty warrior shall he rouse his vengeance :
