1 H1078 Bel H3766 boweth down [H8804] H5015 , Nebo H7164 stoopeth [H8802] H6091 , their idols H2416 were upon the beasts H929 , and upon the cattle H5385 : your carriages H6006 were heavy loaden [H8803] H4853 ; they are a burden H5889 to the weary beast .
2 H7164 They stoop [H8804] H3766 , they bow down [H8804] H3162 together H3201 ; they could [H8804] H4422 not deliver [H8763] H4853 the burden H5315 , but themselves H1980 are gone [H8804] H7628 into captivity.
3 H8085 Hearken [H8798] H1004 unto me, O house H3290 of Jacob H7611 , and all the remnant H1004 of the house H3478 of Israel H6006 , which are borne [H8803] H990 by me from the belly H5375 , which are carried [H8803] H7356 from the womb:
4 H2209 And even to your old age H7872 I am he; and even to hoar hairs H5445 will I carry [H8799] H6213 you : I have made [H8804] H5375 , and I will bear [H8799] H5445 ; even I will carry [H8799] H4422 , and will deliver [H8762] you .
5 H1819 To whom will ye liken [H8762] H7737 me, and make me equal [H8686] H4911 , and compare [H8686] H1819 me, that we may be like [H8799] ?
6 H2107 They lavish [H8801] H2091 gold H3599 out of the bag H8254 , and weigh [H8799] H3701 silver H7070 in the balance H7936 , and hire [H8799] H6884 a goldsmith [H8802] H6213 ; and he maketh [H8799] H410 it a god H5456 : they fall down [H8799] H7812 , yea, they worship [H8691] .
7 H5375 They bear [H8799] H3802 him upon the shoulder H5445 , they carry [H8799] H3240 him, and set him in his place [H8686] H5975 , and he standeth [H8799] H4725 ; from his place H4185 shall he not remove [H8686] H6817 : yea, one shall cry [H8799] H6030 unto him, yet can he not answer [H8799] H3467 , nor save [H8686] H6869 him out of his trouble.
8 H2142 Remember [H8798] H377 this, and shew yourselves men [H8695] H7725 : bring it again [H8685] H3820 to mind H6586 , O ye transgressors [H8802] .
9 H2142 Remember [H8798] H7223 the former things H5769 of old H410 : for I am God H430 , and there is none else; I am God H657 , and there is none H3644 like me,
10 H5046 Declaring [H8688] H319 the end H7225 from the beginning H6924 , and from ancient times H6213 the things that are not yet done [H8738] H559 , saying [H8802] H6098 , My counsel H6965 shall stand [H8799] H6213 , and I will do [H8799] H2656 all my pleasure:
11 H7121 Calling [H8802] H5861 a ravenous bird H4217 from the east H376 , the man H6098 that executeth my counsel H4801 from a far H776 country H1696 : yea, I have spoken [H8765] H935 it, I will also bring [H8686] H3335 it to pass; I have purposed [H8804] H6213 it, I will also do [H8799] it.
12 H8085 Hearken [H8798] H47 unto me, ye stouthearted H3820 H7350 , that are far from H6666 righteousness:
