1 H8085 "Listen H7291 to me, you who follow after H6664 righteousness, H1245 you who seek H3068 Yahweh: H5027 look H6697 to the rock H2672 you were cut H4718 from, and to the hold H953 of the pit H5365 you were dug from.
2 H5027 Look H85 to Abraham H1 your father, H8283 and to Sarah H2342 who bore H259 you; for when he was but one H7121 I called H1288 him, and I blessed H7235 him, and made him many.
3 H3068 For Yahweh H5162 has comforted H6726 Zion; H5162 he has comforted H2723 all her waste places, H7760 and has made H4057 her wilderness H5731 like Eden, H6160 and her desert H1588 like the garden H3068 of Yahweh; H8342 joy H8057 and gladness H4672 shall be found H8426 therein, thanksgiving, H6963 and the voice H2172 of melody.
4 H7181 "Attend H5971 to me, my people; H238 and give ear H3816 to me, my nation: H8451 for a law H3318 shall go forth H7280 from me, and I will establish H4941 my justice H216 for a light H5971 of the peoples.
5 H6664 My righteousness H7138 is near, H3468 my salvation H3318 is gone forth, H2220 and my arms H8199 shall judge H5971 the peoples; H339 the islands H6960 shall wait H2220 for me, and on my arm H3176 shall they trust.
6 H5375 Lift up H5869 your eyes H8064 to the heavens, H5027 and look H776 on the earth H8064 beneath; for the heavens H4414 shall vanish away H6227 like smoke, H776 and the earth H1086 shall wax old H899 like a garment; H3427 and those who dwell H4191 therein shall die H3644 in the same H3654 way: H3444 but my salvation H5769 shall be forever, H6666 and my righteousness H2865 shall not be abolished.
7 H8085 "Listen H3045 to me, you who know H6664 righteousness, H5971 the people H3820 in whose heart H8451 is my law; H3372 don't fear H2781 the reproach H582 of men, H2865 neither be dismayed H1421 at their insults.
8 H6211 For the moth H398 shall eat them up H899 like a garment, H5580 and the worm H398 shall eat H6785 them like wool; H6666 but my righteousness H5769 shall be forever, H3444 and my salvation H1755 to all generations."
9 H5782 Awake, H5782 awake, H3847 put on H5797 strength, H2220 arm H3068 of Yahweh; H5782 awake, H3117 as in the days H5769 of old, H1755 the generations H6924 of ancient H2672 times. Isn't it you who cut H7294 Rahab H2490 in pieces, who pierced H8577 the monster?
10 H2717 Isn't it you who dried H3220 up the sea, H4325 the waters H7227 of the great H8415 deep; H7760 who made H4615 the depths H3220 of the sea H1870 a way H1350 for the redeemed H5674 to pass over?
11 H6299 The ransomed H3068 of Yahweh H7725 shall return, H935 and come H7440 with singing H6726 to Zion; H5769 and everlasting H8057 joy H7218 shall be on their heads. H5381 They shall obtain H8342 gladness H8057 and joy. H3015 Sorrow H585 and sighing H5127 shall flee away.
12 H5162 "I, even I, am he who comforts H3372 you: who are you, that you are afraid H582 of man H4191 who shall die, H1121 and of the son H120 of man H5414 who shall be made H2682 as grass;
13 H7911 and have forgotten H3068 Yahweh H6213 your Maker, H5186 who stretched forth H8064 the heavens, H3245 and laid the foundations H776 of the earth; H6342 and fear H8548 continually H3117 all the day H6440 because H2534 of the fury H6693 of the oppressor, H834 when H3559 he makes ready H7843 to destroy? H2534 and where is the fury H6693 of the oppressor?
14 H6808 The captive exile H4116 shall speedily H6605 be freed; H4191 and he shall not die H7845 and go down into the pit, H3899 neither shall his bread H2637 fail.
15 H3068 For I am Yahweh H430 your God, H7280 who stirs H3220 up the sea, H1530 so that its waves H1993 roar: H3068 Yahweh H6635 of Armies H8034 is his name.
16 H7760 I have put H1697 my words H6310 in your mouth, H3680 and have covered H6738 you in the shadow H3027 of my hand, H5193 that I may plant H8064 the heavens, H3245 and lay the foundations H776 of the earth, H559 and tell H6726 Zion, H5971 ‘You are my people.'"
17 H5782 Awake, H5782 awake, H6965 stand up, H3389 Jerusalem, H8354 that have drunk H3027 at the hand H3068 of Yahweh H3563 the cup H2534 of his wrath; H8354 you have drunken H6907 the bowl H3563 of the cup H8653 of staggering, H4680 and drained it.
18 H5095 There is none to guide H1121 her among all the sons H3205 whom she has brought forth; H2388 neither is there any who takes H3027 her by the hand H1121 among all the sons H1431 who she has brought up.
19 H8147 These two H7122 things have happened H5110 to you. Who will bemoan H7701 you? Desolation H7667 and destruction, H7458 and the famine H2719 and the sword; H5162 how shall I comfort you?
20 H1121 Your sons H5968 have fainted, H7901 they lie H7218 at the head H2351 of all the streets, H8377 as an antelope H4364 in a net; H4392 they are full H2534 of the wrath H3068 of Yahweh, H1606 the rebuke H430 of your God.
22 H559 Thus says H113 your Lord H3068 Yahweh, H430 and your God H7378 who pleads H5971 the cause of his people, H3947 "Behold, I have taken out H3027 of your hand H3563 the cup H8653 of staggering, H6907 even the bowl H3563 of the cup H2534 of my wrath; H3254 you shall no more H8354 drink it again:
