1 H8085 Listen [H8798] H339 , O isles H7181 , unto me; and hearken [H8685] H3816 , ye people H7350 , from far H3068 ; The LORD H7121 hath called [H8804] H990 me from the womb H4578 ; from the bowels H517 of my mother H2142 hath he made mention [H8689] H8034 of my name.
2 H7760 And he hath made [H8799] H6310 my mouth H2299 like a sharp H2719 sword H6738 ; in the shadow H3027 of his hand H2244 hath he hid [H8689] H7760 me, and made [H8799] H1305 me a polished [H8803] H2671 shaft H827 ; in his quiver H5641 hath he hid [H8689] me;
3 H559 And said [H8799] H5650 unto me, Thou art my servant H3478 , O Israel H6286 , in whom I will be glorified [H8691] .
4 H559 Then I said [H8804] H3021 , I have laboured [H8804] H7385 in vain H3615 , I have spent [H8765] H3581 my strength H8414 for nought H1892 , and in vain H403 : yet surely H4941 my judgment H3068 is with the LORD H6468 , and my work H430 with my God.
5 H559 And now, saith [H8804] H3068 the LORD H3335 that formed [H8802] H990 me from the womb H5650 to be his servant H7725 , to bring H3290 Jacob H7725 again [H8788] H3478 to him, Though Israel H622 be not gathered [H8735] H3513 , yet shall I be glorious [H8735] H5869 in the eyes H3068 of the LORD H430 , and my God H5797 shall be my strength.
6 H559 And he said [H8799] H7043 , It is a light thing [H8738] H5650 that thou shouldest be my servant H6965 to raise up [H8687] H7626 the tribes H3290 of Jacob H7725 , and to restore [H8687] H5341 the preserved [H8803] [H8675] H5336 H3478 of Israel H5414 : I will also give [H8804] H216 thee for a light H1471 to the Gentiles H3444 , that thou mayest be my salvation H7097 unto the end H776 of the earth.
7 H559 Thus saith [H8804] H3068 the LORD H1350 , the Redeemer [H8802] H3478 of Israel H6918 , and his Holy One H5315 , to him whom man H960 despiseth H1471 , to him whom the nation H8581 abhorreth [H8764] H5650 , to a servant H4910 of rulers [H8802] H4428 , Kings H7200 shall see [H8799] H6965 and arise [H8804] H8269 , princes H7812 also shall worship [H8691] H3068 , because of the LORD H539 that is faithful [H8737] H6918 , and the Holy One H3478 of Israel H977 , and he shall choose [H8799] thee.
8 H559 Thus saith [H8804] H3068 the LORD H7522 , In an acceptable H6256 time H6030 have I heard [H8804] H3117 thee, and in a day H3444 of salvation H5826 have I helped [H8804] H5341 thee: and I will preserve [H8799] H5414 thee, and give [H8799] H1285 thee for a covenant H5971 of the people H6965 , to establish [H8687] H776 the earth H5157 , to cause to inherit [H8687] H8074 the desolate [H8802] H5159 heritages;
9 H559 That thou mayest say [H8800] H631 to the prisoners [H8803] H3318 , Go forth [H8798] H2822 ; to them that are in darkness H1540 , Shew [H8734] H7462 yourselves. They shall feed [H8799] H1870 in the ways H4830 , and their pastures H8205 shall be in all high places.
10 H7456 They shall not hunger [H8799] H6770 nor thirst [H8799] H8273 ; neither shall the heat H8121 nor sun H5221 smite [H8686] H7355 them: for he that hath mercy [H8764] H5090 on them shall lead [H8762] H4002 them, even by the springs H4325 of water H5095 shall he guide [H8762] them.
11 H7760 And I will make [H8804] H2022 all my mountains H1870 a way H4546 , and my highways H7311 shall be exalted [H8799] .
12 H935 Behold, these shall come [H8799] H7350 from far H6828 : and, lo, these from the north H3220 and from the west H776 ; and these from the land H5515 of Sinim.
13 H7442 Sing [H8798] H8064 , O heavens H1523 ; and be joyful [H8798] H776 , O earth H6476 ; and break forth [H8798] H7440 into singing H2022 , O mountains H3068 : for the LORD H5162 hath comforted [H8765] H5971 his people H7355 , and will have mercy [H8762] H6041 upon his afflicted.
14 H6726 But Zion H559 said [H8799] H3068 , The LORD H5800 hath forsaken [H8804] H136 me, and my Lord H7911 hath forgotten [H8804] me.
15 H802 Can a woman H7911 forget [H8799] H5764 her sucking child H7355 , that she should not have compassion [H8763] H1121 on the son H990 of her womb H7911 ? yea, they may forget [H8799] H7911 , yet will I not forget [H8799] thee.
16 H2710 Behold, I have graven [H8804] H3709 thee upon the palms of my hands H2346 ; thy walls H8548 are continually before me.
17 H1121 Thy children H4116 shall make haste [H8765] H2040 ; thy destroyers [H8764] H2717 and they that made thee waste [H8688] H3318 shall go forth [H8799] of thee.
18 H5375 Lift up [H8798] H5869 thine eyes H5439 round about H7200 , and behold [H8798] H6908 : all these gather themselves together [H8738] H935 , and come [H8804] H2416 to thee. As I live H5002 , saith [H8803] H3068 the LORD H3847 , thou shalt surely clothe [H8799] H5716 thee with them all, as with an ornament H7194 , and bind [H8762] H3618 them on thee, as a bride doeth .
19 H2723 For thy waste H8074 and thy desolate places [H8802] H776 , and the land H2035 of thy destruction H3334 , shall even now be too narrow [H8799] H3427 by reason of the inhabitants [H8802] H1104 , and they that swallowed thee up [H8764] H7368 shall be far away [H8804] .
20 H1121 The children H7923 which thou shalt have, after thou hast lost H559 the other, shall say [H8799] H241 again in thine ears H4725 , The place H6862 is too strait H5066 for me: give [H8798] H4725 place H3427 to me that I may dwell [H8799] .
21 H559 Then shalt thou say [H8804] H3824 in thine heart H3205 , Who hath begotten [H8804] H7921 me these, seeing I have lost my children [H8803] H1565 , and am desolate H1540 , a captive [H8802] H5493 , and removing to and fro [H8803] H1431 ? and who hath brought up [H8765] H7604 these? Behold, I was left [H8738] H375 alone; these, where had they been ?
22 H559 Thus saith [H8804] H136 the Lord H3069 GOD H5375 , Behold, I will lift up [H8799] H3027 mine hand H1471 to the Gentiles H7311 , and set up [H8686] H5251 my standard H5971 to the people H935 : and they shall bring [H8689] H1121 thy sons H2684 in their arms H1323 , and thy daughters H5375 shall be carried [H8735] H3802 upon their shoulders.
23 H4428 And kings H539 shall be thy nursing fathers [H8802] H8282 , and their queens H3243 thy nursing mothers [H8688] H7812 : they shall bow down [H8691] H639 to thee with their face H776 toward the earth H3897 , and lick up [H8762] H6083 the dust H7272 of thy feet H3045 ; and thou shalt know [H8804] H3068 that I am the LORD H954 : for they shall not be ashamed [H8799] H6960 that wait [H8802] for me.
24 H4455 Shall the prey H3947 be taken [H8714] H1368 from the mighty H6662 , or the lawful H7628 captive H4422 delivered [H8735] ?
25 H559 But thus saith [H8804] H3068 the LORD H7628 , Even the captives H1368 of the mighty H3947 shall be taken away [H8714] H4455 , and the prey H6184 of the terrible H4422 shall be delivered [H8735] H7378 : for I will contend [H8799] H3401 with him that contendeth H3467 with thee, and I will save [H8686] H1121 thy children.
26 H398 And I will feed [H8689] H3238 them that oppress [H8688] H1320 thee with their own flesh H7937 ; and they shall be drunken [H8799] H1818 with their own blood H6071 , as with sweet wine H1320 : and all flesh H3045 shall know [H8804] H3068 that I the LORD H3467 am thy Saviour [H8688] H1350 and thy Redeemer [H8802] H46 , the mighty One H3290 of Jacob.
