Isaiah 40

  1 H5162 [H8761] Comfort H5162 [H8761] ye, comfort H5971 ye my people H559 [H8799] , saith H430 your God.
  2 H1696 [H8761] Speak H3820 ye kindly H3389 to Jerusalem H7121 [H8798] , and cry H6635 to her, that her warfare H4390 [H8804] is accomplished H5771 , that her iniquity H7521 [H8738] is pardoned H3947 [H8804] : for she hath received H3068 from the LORD'S H3027 hand H3718 double H2403 for all her sins.
  3 H6963 The voice H7121 [H8802] of him that crieth H4057 in the wilderness H6437 [H8761] , Prepare H1870 ye the way H3068 of the LORD H3474 [H8761] , make straight H6160 in the desert H4546 a highway H430 for our God.
  4 H1516 Every valley H5375 [H8735] shall be exalted H2022 , and every mountain H1389 and hill H8213 [H8799] shall be made low H6121 : and the crooked H4334 shall be made straight H7406 , and the rough places H1237 plain:
  5 H3519 And the glory H3068 of the LORD H1540 [H8738] shall be revealed H1320 , and all flesh H3162 together H7200 [H8804] shall see H6310 it: for the mouth H3068 of the LORD H1696 [H8765] hath spoken it.
  6 H6963 The voice H559 [H8802] said H7121 [H8798] , Cry H559 [H8804] . And he said H7121 [H8799] , What shall I cry H1320 ? All flesh H2682 is grass H2617 , and all its beauty H6731 is as the flower H7704 of the field:
  7 H2682 The grass H3001 [H8804] withereth H6731 , the flower H5034 [H8804] fadeth H7307 : because the spirit H3068 of the LORD H5380 [H8804] bloweth H403 upon it: surely H5971 the people H2682 is grass.
  8 H2682 The grass H3001 [H8804] withereth H6731 , the flower H5034 [H8804] fadeth H1697 : but the word H430 of our God H6965 [H8799] shall stand H5769 for ever.
  9 H6726 O Zion H1319 [H8764] , that bringest good tidings H5927 [H8798] , go up H1364 upon the high H2022 mountain H3389 ; O Jerusalem H1319 [H8764] , that bringest good tidings H7311 [H8685] , lift up H6963 thy voice H3581 with strength H7311 [H8685] ; lift it up H3372 [H8799] , be not afraid H559 [H8798] ; say H5892 to the cities H3063 of Judah H430 , Behold your God!
  10 H136 Behold, the Lord H3069 GOD H935 [H8799] will come H2389 with strong H2220 hand, and his arm H4910 [H8802] shall rule H7939 for him: behold, his reward H6468 is with him, and his work H6440 before him.
  11 H7462 [H8799] He shall feed H5739 his flock H7462 [H8802] like a shepherd H6908 [H8762] : he shall gather H2922 the lambs H2220 with his arm H5375 [H8799] , and carry H2436 them in his bosom H5095 [H8762] , and shall gently lead H5763 [H8802] those that are with young.
  12 H4058 [H8804] Who hath comprehended H4325 the waters H8168 in the hollow of his hand H8505 [H8765] , and measured H8064 heaven H2239 with the span H3557 [H8804] , and comprehended H6083 the dust H776 of the earth H7991 in a measure H8254 [H8804] , and weighed H2022 the mountains H6425 in scales H1389 , and the hills H3976 in a balance?
  13 H8505 [H8765] Who hath directed H7307 the Spirit H3068 of the LORD H376 H6098 , or being his counsellor H3045 [H8686] hath taught him?
  14 H3289 [H8738] With whom took he counsel H995 [H8799] , and who instructed H3925 [H8762] him, and taught H734 him in the path H4941 of judgment H3925 [H8762] , and taught H1847 him knowledge H3045 [H8686] , and showed H1870 to him the way H8394 of understanding?
  15 H1471 Behold, the nations H4752 are as a drop H1805 of a bucket H2803 [H8738] , and are counted H7834 as the small dust H3976 of the balance H5190 [H8799] : behold, he taketh up H339 the isles H1851 as a very little thing.
  16 H3844 And Lebanon H369 is not H1767 sufficient H1197 [H8763] to burn H2416 , nor its beasts H1767 sufficient H5930 for a burnt offering.
  17 H1471 All nations H2803 [H8738] before him are as nothing; and they are counted H657 to him less than nothing H8414 , and vanity.
  18 H1819 [H8762] To whom then will ye liken H410 God H1823 ? or what likeness H6186 [H8799] will ye compare him to?
  19 H2796 The workman H5258 [H8804] casteth H6459 a graven image H6884 [H8802] , and the goldsmith H7554 [H8762] spreadeth H2091 it over with gold H6884 [H8802] , and casteth H3701 silver H7577 chains.
  20 H5533 H5534 [H8794] He that is so impoverished H8641 that he hath no oblation H977 [H8799] chooseth H6086 a tree H7537 [H8799] that will not rot H1245 [H8762] ; he seeketh H2450 for himself a skilful H2796 workman H3559 [H8687] to prepare H6459 a graven image H4131 [H8735] , that shall not be moved.
  21 H3045 [H8799] Have ye not known H8085 [H8799] ? have ye not heard H5046 [H8717] ? hath it not been told H7218 you from the beginning H995 [H8689] ? have ye not understood H4146 from the foundations H776 of the earth?
  22 H3427 [H8802] It is he that sitteth H2329 upon the circle H776 of the earth H3427 [H8802] , and its inhabitants H2284 are as grasshoppers H5186 [H8802] ; that stretcheth out H8064 the heavens H1852 as a curtain H4969 [H8799] , and spreadeth them out H168 as a tent H3427 [H8800] to dwell in:
  23 H5414 [H8802] That bringeth H7336 [H8802] the princes H6213 [H8804] to nothing; he maketh H8199 [H8802] the judges H776 of the earth H8414 as vanity.
  24 H5193 [H8738] Yea, they shall not be planted H2232 [H8795] ; yea, they shall not be sown H1503 : yea, their stock H8327 [H8782] shall not take root H776 in the earth H5398 [H8804] : and he shall also blow H3001 [H8799] upon them, and they shall wither H5591 , and the whirlwind H5375 [H8799] shall take H7179 them away as stubble.
  25 H1819 [H8762] To whom then will ye liken H7737 [H8799] me, or to whom shall I be equal H559 [H8799] ? saith H6918 the Holy One.
  26 H5375 [H8798] Lift up H5869 your eyes H4791 on high H7200 [H8798] , and behold H1254 [H8804] who hath created H3318 [H8688] these things, that bringeth out H6635 their host H4557 by number H7121 [H8799] : he calleth H8034 them all by names H7230 by the greatness H202 of his might H533 , for that he is strong H3581 in power H376 ; not one H5737 [H8738] faileth.
  27 H559 [H8799] Why sayest H3290 thou, O Jacob H1696 [H8762] , and speakest H3478 , O Israel H1870 , My way H5641 [H8738] is hid H3068 from the LORD H4941 , and my judgment H5674 [H8799] is passed over H430 by my God?
  28 H3045 [H8804] Hast thou not known H8085 [H8804] ? hast thou not heard H5769 , that the everlasting H430 God H3068 , the LORD H1254 [H8802] , the Creator H7098 of the ends H776 of the earth H3286 [H8799] , fainteth H3021 [H8799] not, neither is weary H2714 ? there is no searching H8394 of his understanding.
  29 H5414 [H8802] He giveth H3581 power H3287 to the faint H202 ; and to them that have no might H7235 [H8686] he increaseth H6109 strength.
  30 H5288 Even the youths H3286 [H8799] shall faint H3021 [H8799] and be weary H970 , and the young men H3782 [H8800] shall utterly H3782 [H8735] fall:
  31 H6960 [H8802] But they that wait H3068 upon the LORD H2498 [H8686] shall renew H3581 their strength H5927 [H8799] ; they shall mount up H83 with wings H5404 as eagles H7323 [H8799] ; they shall run H3021 [H8799] , and not be weary H3212 [H8799] ; they shall walk H3286 [H8799] , and not faint.
