1 H2790 Keep silence [H8685] H339 before me, O islands H3816 ; and let the people H2498 renew [H8686] H3581 their strength H5066 : let them come near [H8799] H1696 ; then let them speak [H8762] H7126 : let us come near [H8799] H3162 together H4941 to judgment.
2 H5782 Who raised up [H8689] H6664 the righteous H4217 man from the east H7121 , called [H8799] H7272 him to his foot H5414 , gave [H8799] H1471 the nations H6440 before H7287 him, and made him rule [H8686] H4428 over kings H5414 ? he gave [H8799] H6083 them as the dust H2719 to his sword H5086 , and as driven [H8737] H7179 stubble H7198 to his bow.
3 H7291 He pursued [H8799] H5674 them, and passed [H8799] H7965 safely H734 ; even by the way H935 that he had not gone [H8799] H7272 with his feet.
4 H6466 Who hath wrought [H8804] H6213 and done [H8804] H7121 it, calling [H8802] H1755 the generations H7218 from the beginning H3068 ? I the LORD H7223 , the first H314 , and with the last; I am he.
5 H339 The isles H7200 saw [H8804] H3372 it, and feared [H8799] H7098 ; the ends H776 of the earth H2729 were afraid [H8799] H7126 , drew near [H8804] H857 , and came [H8799] .
6 H5826 They helped [H8799] H376 every one H7453 his neighbour H559 ; and every one said [H8799] H251 to his brother H2388 , Be of good courage [H8798] .
7 H2796 So the carpenter H2388 encouraged [H8762] H6884 the goldsmith [H8802] H2505 , and he that smootheth [H8688] H6360 with the hammer H1986 him that smote [H8802] H6471 the anvil H559 , saying [H8802] H2896 , It is ready H1694 for the sodering H2388 : and he fastened [H8762] H4548 it with nails H4131 , that it should not be moved [H8735] .
8 H3478 But thou, Israel H5650 , art my servant H3290 , Jacob H977 whom I have chosen [H8804] H2233 , the seed H85 of Abraham H157 my friend [H8802] .
9 H2388 Thou whom I have taken [H8689] H7098 from the ends H776 of the earth H7121 , and called [H8804] H678 thee from the chief men H559 thereof, and said [H8799] H5650 unto thee, Thou art my servant H977 ; I have chosen [H8804] H3988 thee, and not cast thee away [H8804] .
10 H3372 Fear [H8799] H8159 thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed [H8691] H430 ; for I am thy God H553 : I will strengthen [H8765] H5826 thee; yea, I will help [H8804] H8551 thee; yea, I will uphold [H8804] H3225 thee with the right hand H6664 of my righteousness.
11 H2734 Behold, all they that were incensed [H8737] H954 against thee shall be ashamed [H8799] H3637 and confounded [H8735] H582 : they shall be as nothing; and they H7379 that strive H6 with thee shall perish [H8799] .
12 H1245 Thou shalt seek [H8762] H4672 them, and shalt not find [H8799] H582 them, even them H4695 that contended H4421 with thee: they that war H657 against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought.
13 H3068 For I the LORD H430 thy God H2388 will hold [H8688] H3225 thy right hand H559 , saying [H8802] H3372 unto thee, Fear [H8799] H5826 not; I will help [H8804] thee.
14 H3372 Fear [H8799] H8438 not, thou worm H3290 Jacob H4962 , and ye men H3478 of Israel H5826 ; I will help [H8804] H5002 thee, saith [H8803] H3068 the LORD H1350 , and thy redeemer [H8802] H6918 , the Holy One H3478 of Israel.
15 H7760 Behold, I will make [H8804] H2319 thee a new H2742 sharp H4173 threshing H1167 instrument having H6374 teeth H1758 : thou shalt thresh [H8799] H2022 the mountains H1854 , and beat them small [H8799] H7760 , and shalt make [H8799] H1389 the hills H4671 as chaff.
16 H2219 Thou shalt fan [H8799] H7307 them, and the wind H5375 shall carry them away [H8799] H5591 , and the whirlwind H6327 shall scatter [H8686] H1523 them: and thou shalt rejoice [H8799] H3068 in the LORD H1984 , and shalt glory [H8691] H6918 in the Holy One H3478 of Israel.
17 H6041 When the poor H34 and needy H1245 seek [H8764] H4325 water H3956 , and there is none, and their tongue H5405 faileth [H8804] H6772 for thirst H3068 , I the LORD H6030 will hear [H8799] H430 them, I the God H3478 of Israel H5800 will not forsake [H8799] them.
18 H6605 I will open [H8799] H5104 rivers H8205 in high places H4599 , and fountains H8432 in the midst H1237 of the valleys H7760 : I will make [H8799] H4057 the wilderness H98 a pool H4325 of water H6723 , and the dry H776 land H4161 springs H4325 of water.
19 H5414 I will plant [H8799] H4057 in the wilderness H730 the cedar H7848 , the shittah tree H1918 , and the myrtle H8081 , and the oil H6086 tree H7760 ; I will set [H8799] H6160 in the desert H1265 the fir tree H8410 , and the pine H8391 , and the box tree H3162 together:
20 H7200 That they may see [H8799] H3045 , and know [H8799] H7760 , and consider [H8799] H7919 , and understand [H8686] H3162 together H3027 , that the hand H3068 of the LORD H6213 hath done [H8804] H6918 this, and the Holy One H3478 of Israel H1254 hath created [H8804] it.
21 H7126 Produce [H8761] H7379 your cause H559 , saith [H8799] H3068 the LORD H5066 ; bring forth [H8685] H6110 your strong H559 reasons, saith [H8799] H4428 the King H3290 of Jacob.
22 H5066 Let them bring them forth [H8686] H5046 , and shew [H8686] H7136 us what shall happen [H8799] H5046 : let them shew [H8685] H7223 the former things H7760 , what they be, that we may consider [H8799] H3820 H3045 them, and know [H8799] H319 the latter end H8085 of them; or declare [H8685] H935 us things for to come [H8802] .
23 H5046 Shew [H8685] H857 the things that are to come [H8802] H268 hereafter H3045 , that we may know [H8799] H430 that ye are gods H3190 : yea, do good [H8686] H7489 , or do evil [H8686] H8159 , that we may be dismayed [H8691] H7200 , and behold [H8799] H3162 it together.
24 H369 Behold, ye are of nothing H6467 , and your work H659 of nought H8441 : an abomination H977 is he that chooseth [H8799] you.
25 H5782 I have raised up [H8689] H6828 one from the north H857 , and he shall come [H8799] H4217 : from the rising H8121 of the sun H7121 shall he call [H8799] H8034 upon my name H935 : and he shall come [H8799] H5461 upon princes H2563 as upon morter H3335 , and as the potter [H8802] H7429 treadeth [H8799] H2916 clay.
26 H5046 Who hath declared [H8689] H7218 from the beginning H3045 , that we may know [H8799] H6440 ? and beforetime H559 , that we may say [H8799] H6662 , He is righteous H5046 ? yea, there is none that sheweth [H8688] H8085 , yea, there is none that declareth [H8688] H8085 , yea, there is none that heareth [H8802] H561 your words.
27 H7223 The first H6726 shall say to Zion H2009 , Behold H2009 , behold H5414 them: and I will give [H8799] H3389 to Jerusalem H1319 one that bringeth good tidings [H8764] .
28 H7200 For I beheld [H8799] H376 , and there was no man H3289 ; even among them, and there was no counsellor [H8802] H7592 , that, when I asked [H8799] H7725 of them, could answer [H8686] H1697 a word.
