And, ye blind, look attentively, that ye may see! 19 Who is blind, but my servant;
And deaf, as he to whom I have sent my messengers?
And deaf, as the servant of Jehovah?
Thine ears are open, yet thou wilt not hear. 21 Yet JEHOVAH was gracious unto him, for his truth's
sake; He hath exalted his own praise, and made it glorious. 22 But this is a people spoiled and plundered;
All their chosen youths are taken in the toils,
23 Who is there among you, that will listen to this;
That will hearken, and attend to it, for the future? . 24 Who hath given Jacob for a spoil;
And Israel to the plunderers ?

CHAP. 1 Yet now, thus saith JEHOVAH; .
Who created thee, O Jacob; and who formed thee, O
I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.
And through rivers, they shall not overwhelm thee :
The Holy One of Israel, thy redeemer: .
Cush, and Saba, in thy stead.
Thou hast been honoured, and I have loved thee :
And peoples instead of thy soul.
From the east I will bring thy children,
And from the west I will gather thee together : • 6 I will say to the north, Give up;
And to the south, Withhold not:
And my daughters from the ends of the earth :
Whom for my glory I have created;

Even my servant, whom I have chosen:
And after me none shall exist. 11 I, even I, am JEHOVAH;
And beside me there is no saviour. 12 I declared my purpose, and I have saved :
I made it known; nor was it any strange god among
you : And ye are my witnesses, saith JEHOVAH, that I am
And there is none that can rescue out of my hand:
14 Thus saith JEHOVAH,
Your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel :
And the Chaldeans, exulting in their ships : 15 I am JEHOVAH, your Holy One;
The creator of Israel, your king.
16 Thus saith JEHOVAH;
Who made a way in the sea,
And a path in the mighty waters; 17 Who brought forth the rider and the horse, the army
and the warrior; Together they lay down, they rose no more ; They were extinguished, they were quenched like tow: 18 Remember not the former things;
And the things of ancient times regard not;
Even now shall it spring forth: will ye not regard it ?

The dragons, and the daughters of the ostrich :
To give drink to my people, my chosen :
Who shall recount my praise.
22 But thou hast not invoked me, O Jacob;
Neither on my account hast thou laboured, O Israel !
Nor wearied thee with demands of frankincense :
tic seed; Neither hast thou satiated me with the fat of thy sacri
fices. On the contrary, thou hast burthened me with thy sins;
Thou hast wearied me with thine iniquities. 25 I, even I, am He;

And flowing streams on the dry ground :
And my blessing on thine offspring. 4 And they shall spring up as the grass among the waters;
As the willows beside the aqueducts.
And another shall be called by the name of Jacob:

And his redeemer, JEHOVAH God of Hosts:

Yea, there is no other sure protector; I know not any. 9 They that form the graven image are all of them vanity;
And their most curious works shall not profit.
