1 H1078 Bel H3766 [H8804] boweth down, H5015 Nebo H7164 [H8802] stoopeth, H6091 their idols H2416 were upon the beasts, H929 and upon the cattle: H5385 your carriages H6006 [H8803] were heavily loaded; H4853 they were a burden H5889 to the weary beast.
2 H7164 [H8804] They stoop, H3766 [H8804] they bow down H3162 together; H3201 [H8804] they could H4422 [H8763] not deliver H4853 the burden, H5315 but themselves H1980 [H8804] have gone H7628 into captivity.
3 H8085 [H8798] Hearken H1004 to me, O house H3290 of Jacob, H7611 and all the remnant H1004 of the house H3478 of Israel, H6006 [H8803] who are borne H990 by me from birth, H5375 [H8803] who are carried H7356 from the womb:
4 H2209 And even to your old age H7872 I am he; and even to gray hairs H5445 [H8799] will I carry H6213 [H8804] you: I have made, H5375 [H8799] and I will bear; H5445 [H8799] even I will carry, H4422 [H8762] and will deliver you.
5 H1819 [H8762] To whom will ye liken H7737 [H8686] me, and make me equal, H4911 [H8686] and compare H1819 [H8799] me, that we may be like?
6 H2107 [H8801] They lavish H2091 gold H3599 out of the bag, H8254 [H8799] and weigh H3701 silver H7070 in the balance, H7936 [H8799] and hire H6884 [H8802] a goldsmith; H6213 [H8799] and he maketh H410 it a god: H5456 [H8799] they fall down, H7812 [H8691] yea, they worship.
7 H5375 [H8799] They bear H3802 him upon the shoulder, H5445 [H8799] they carry H3240 [H8686] him, and set him in his place, H5975 [H8799] and he standeth; H4725 from his place H4185 [H8686] shall he not move: H6817 [H8799] yea, one shall shriek H6030 [H8799] to him, yet he cannot answer, H3467 [H8686] nor save H6869 him out of his trouble.
8 H2142 [H8798] Remember H377 [H8695] this, and show yourselves men: H7725 [H8685] bring it again H3820 to mind, H6586 [H8802] O ye transgressors.
9 H2142 [H8798] Remember 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 [H8688] Declaring H319 the end H7225 from the beginning, H6924 and from ancient times H6213 [H8738] the things that are not yet done, H559 [H8802] saying, H6098 My counsel H6965 [H8799] shall stand, H6213 [H8799] and I will do H2656 all my pleasure:
11 H7121 [H8802] Calling H5861 a ravenous bird H4217 from the east, H376 the man H6098 that executeth my counsel H4801 from a far H776 land: H1696 [H8765] yea, I have spoken H935 [H8686] it, I will also bring H3335 [H8804] it to pass; I have purposed H6213 [H8799] it, I will also perform it.
12 H8085 [H8798] Hearken H47 H3820 to me, ye stubborn in heart, H7350 that are far from H6666 righteousness:
