Isaiah 44

  1 H8085 [H8798] Yet now hear H3290 , O Jacob H5650 my servant H3478 ; and Israel H977 [H8804] , whom I have chosen:
  2 H559 [H8804] Thus saith H3068 the LORD H6213 [H8802] that made H3335 [H8802] thee, and formed H990 thee from the womb H5826 [H8799] , who will help H3372 [H8799] thee; Fear H3290 not, O Jacob H5650 , my servant H3484 ; and thou, Jesurun H977 [H8804] , whom I have chosen.
  3 H3332 [H8799] For I will pour H4325 water H6771 upon him that is thirsty H5140 [H8802] , and floods H3004 upon the dry ground H3332 [H8799] : I will pour H7307 my spirit H2233 upon thy seed H1293 , and my blessing H6631 upon thy offspring:
  4 H6779 [H8804] And they shall spring up H996 as among H2682 the grass H6155 , as willows H4325 by the water H2988 courses.
  5 H559 [H8799] One shall say H3068 , I am the LORD'S H7121 [H8799] ; and another shall call H8034 himself by the name H3290 of Jacob H3789 [H8799] ; and another shall write H3027 with his hand H3068 to the LORD H3655 [H8762] , and surname H8034 himself by the name H3478 of Israel.
  6 H559 [H8804] Thus saith H3068 the LORD H4428 the King H3478 of Israel H1350 [H8802] , and his redeemer H3068 the LORD H6635 of hosts H7223 ; I am the first H314 , and I am the last H1107 ; and besides H430 me there is no God.
  7 H7121 [H8799] And who, as I, shall call H5046 [H8686] , and shall declare H6186 [H8799] it, and set it in order H7760 [H8800] for me, since I appointed H5769 the ancient H5971 people H857 [H8802] ? and the things that are coming H935 [H8799] , and shall come H5046 [H8686] , let them show to them.
  8 H6342 [H8799] Fear H7297 H7297 [H8799] ye not, neither be afraid H8085 [H8689] : have not I told H227 thee from that time H5046 [H8689] , and have declared H5707 it? ye are even my witnesses H3426 . Is there H433 a God H1107 besides H6697 me? verily, there is no God H3045 [H8804] ; I know not any.
  9 H3335 [H8802] They that make H6459 a graven image H8414 are all of them vanity H2530 [H8803] ; and their delectable things H3276 [H8686] shall not profit H5707 ; and they are their own witnesses H7200 [H8799] ; they see H3045 [H8799] not, nor know H954 [H8799] ; that they may be ashamed.
  10 H3335 [H8804] Who hath formed H410 a god H5258 [H8804] , or cast H6459 a graven image H3276 [H8687] that is profitable H1115 for nothing?
  11 H2270 Behold, all his companions H954 [H8799] shall be ashamed H2796 : and the workmen H120 , they are of men H6908 [H8691] : let them all be gathered together H5975 [H8799] , let them stand up H6342 [H8799] ; yet they shall fear H954 [H8799] , and they shall be ashamed H3162 together.
  12 H1270 H2796 The smith H4621 with the tongs H6466 [H8804] both worketh H6352 in the coals H3335 [H8799] , and fashioneth H4717 it with hammers H6466 [H8799] , and worketh H3581 it with the strength H2220 of his arms H7457 : yea, he is hungry H3581 , and his strength H369 faileth H8354 [H8804] : he drinketh H4325 no water H3286 [H8799] , and is faint.
  13 H2796 H6086 The carpenter H5186 [H8804] stretcheth out H6957 his rule H8388 [H8762] ; he marketh it out H8279 with a line H6213 [H8799] ; he fitteth H4741 it with planes H8388 [H8762] , and he marketh it out H4230 with the compass H6213 [H8799] , and maketh H8403 it after the figure H376 of a man H8597 , according to the beauty H120 of a man H3427 [H8800] ; that it may remain H1004 in the house.
  14 H3772 [H8800] He heweth down H730 cedars H3947 [H8799] for himself and taketh H8645 the cypress H437 and the oak H553 [H8762] , which he strengtheneth H6086 for himself among the trees H3293 of the forest H5193 [H8804] : he planteth H766 an ash H1653 , and the rain H1431 [H8762] doth nourish it.
  15 H120 Then shall it be for a man H1197 [H8763] to burn H3947 [H8799] : for he will take H2552 [H8799] of it, and warm H5400 [H8686] himself; indeed, he kindleth H644 [H8804] it, and baketh H3899 bread H6466 [H8799] ; yea, he maketh H410 a god H7812 [H8691] , and worshippeth H6213 [H8804] it; he maketh H6459 it a graven image H5456 [H8799] , and falleth down to it.
  16 H8313 [H8804] He burneth H2677 part H1119 of it in H784 the fire H2677 ; with part H398 [H8799] of it he eateth H1320 flesh H6740 [H8799] ; he roasteth H6748 meat H7646 [H8799] , and is satisfied H2552 [H8799] : yea, he warmeth H559 [H8799] himself, and saith H1889 , Aha H2552 [H8804] , I am warm H7200 [H8804] , I have seen H217 the fire:
  17 H7611 And the rest H6213 [H8804] of it he maketh H410 a god H6459 , even his graven image H5456 [H8799] : he falleth down H7812 [H8691] to it, and worshippeth H6419 [H8691] it, and prayeth H559 [H8799] to it, and saith H5337 [H8685] , Deliver H410 me; for thou art my god.
  18 H3045 [H8804] They have not known H995 [H8799] nor understood H2902 [H8804] : for he hath shut H5869 their eyes H7200 [H8800] , that they cannot see H3826 ; and their hearts H7919 [H8687] , that they cannot understand.
  19 H7725 [H8686] And none considereth H3820 in his heart H1847 , neither is there knowledge H8394 nor understanding H559 [H8800] to say H8313 [H8804] , I have burned H2677 part H1119 of it in H784 the fire H644 [H8804] ; I have also baked H3899 bread H1513 upon its coals H6740 [H8799] ; I have roasted H1320 flesh H398 [H8799] , and eaten H6213 [H8799] it: and shall I make H3499 the rest H8441 of it an abomination H5456 [H8799] ? shall I fall down H944 to the stock H6086 of a tree?
  20 H7462 [H8802] He feedeth H665 on ashes H2048 [H8795] : a deceived H3820 heart H5186 [H8689] hath turned him aside H5337 [H8686] , that he cannot deliver H5315 his soul H559 [H8799] , nor say H8267 , Is there not a lie H3225 in my right hand?
  21 H2142 [H8798] Remember H3290 these, O Jacob H3478 and Israel H5650 ; for thou art my servant H3335 [H8804] : I have formed H5650 thee; thou art my servant H3478 : O Israel H5382 [H8735] , thou shalt not be forgotten by me.
  22 H4229 [H8804] I have blotted out H5645 , as a thick cloud H6588 , thy transgressions H6051 , and, as a cloud H2403 , thy sins H7725 [H8798] : return H1350 [H8804] to me; for I have redeemed thee.
  23 H7442 [H8798] Sing H8064 , O ye heavens H3068 ; for the LORD H6213 [H8804] hath done H7321 [H8685] it: shout H8482 , ye lower parts H776 of the earth H6476 [H8798] : break forth H7440 into singing H2022 , ye mountains H3293 , O forest H6086 , and every tree H3068 in it: for the LORD H1350 [H8804] hath redeemed H3290 Jacob H6286 [H8691] , and glorified H3478 himself in Israel.
  24 H559 [H8804] Thus saith H3068 the LORD H1350 [H8802] , thy redeemer H3335 [H8802] , and he that formed H990 thee from the womb H3068 , I am the LORD H6213 [H8802] that maketh H5186 [H8802] all things; that stretcheth forth H8064 the heavens H7554 [H8802] alone; that spreadeth abroad H776 the earth by myself;
  25 H6565 [H8688] That frustrateth H226 the tokens H907 of the liars H7080 [H8802] , and maketh diviners H1984 [H8779] mad H7725 [H8688] ; that turneth H2450 wise H268 men backward H1847 , and maketh their knowledge H5528 [H8762] foolish;
  26 H6965 [H8688] That confirmeth H1697 the word H5650 of his servant H7999 [H8686] , and performeth H6098 the counsel H4397 of his messengers H559 [H8802] ; that saith H3389 to Jerusalem H3427 [H8714] , Thou shalt be inhabited H5892 ; and to the cities H3063 of Judah H1129 [H8735] , Ye shall be built H6965 [H8787] , and I will raise up H2723 its decayed places:
  27 H559 [H8802] That saith H6683 to the deep H2717 [H8798] , Be dry H3001 [H8686] , and I will dry up H5104 thy rivers:
  28 H559 [H8802] That saith H3566 of Cyrus H7462 [H8802] , He is my shepherd H7999 [H8686] , and he shall perform H2656 all my pleasure H559 [H8800] : even saying H3389 to Jerusalem H1129 [H8735] , Thou shalt be built H1964 ; and to the temple H3245 [H8735] , Thy foundation shall be laid.
