Isaiah 49

  1 H8085 [H8798] Listen, H339 to me O isles; H7181 [H8685] and hearken, H3816 ye folk, H7350 from far; H3068 The LORD H7121 [H8804] hath called H990 me from the womb; H4578 from the bowels H517 of my mother H2142 [H8689] hath he made mention H8034 of my name.
  2 H7760 [H8799] And he hath made H6310 my mouth H2299 like a sharp H2719 sword; H6738 in the shadow H3027 of his hand H2244 [H8689] hath he hid H7760 [H8799] me, and made H1305 [H8803] me a polished H2671 shaft; H827 in his quiver H5641 [H8689] hath he hid me;
  3 H559 [H8799] And said H5650 to me, Thou art my servant, H3478 O Israel, H6286 [H8691] in whom I will be glorified.
  4 H559 [H8804] Then I said, H3021 [H8804] I have laboured H7385 in vain, H3615 [H8765] I have spent H3581 my strength H8414 for nothing, H1892 and in vain: H403 yet surely H4941 my judgment H3068 is with the LORD, H6468 and my work H430 with my God.
  5 H559 [H8804] And now, saith H3068 the LORD H3335 [H8802] that formed H990 me from the womb H5650 to be his servant, H7725 0 to bring H3290 Jacob H7725 [H8788] again H3478 to him, Though Israel H622 [H8735] be not gathered, H3513 [H8735] yet shall I be glorious H5869 in the eyes H3068 of the LORD, H430 and my God H5797 shall be my strength.
  6 H559 [H8799] And he said, H7043 [H8738] It is a light thing H5650 that thou shouldest be my servant H6965 [H8687] to raise up H7626 the tribes H3290 of Jacob, H7725 [H8687] and to restore H5341 H5336 [H8803] the preserved H3478 of Israel: H5414 [H8804] I will also give H216 thee for a light H1471 to the nations, H3444 that thou mayest be my salvation H7097 to the end H776 of the earth.
  7 H559 [H8804] Thus saith H3068 the LORD, H1350 [H8802] the Redeemer H3478 of Israel, H6918 and his Holy One, H5315 to him whom man H960 despiseth, H1471 to him whom the nation H8581 [H8764] abhorreth, H5650 to a servant H4910 [H8802] of rulers, H4428 Kings H7200 [H8799] shall see H6965 [H8804] and arise, H8269 princes H7812 [H8691] also shall worship, H3068 because of the LORD H539 [H8737] that is faithful, H6918 and the Holy One H3478 of Israel, H977 [H8799] and he shall choose thee.
  8 H559 [H8804] Thus saith H3068 the LORD, H7522 In an acceptable H6256 time H6030 [H8804] have I heard H3117 thee, and in a day H3444 of salvation H5826 [H8804] have I helped H5341 [H8799] thee: and I will preserve H5414 [H8799] thee, and give H1285 thee for a covenant H5971 of the people, H6965 [H8687] to raise H776 the earth, H5157 [H8687] to cause to inherit H8074 [H8802] the desolate H5159 heritages;
  9 H559 [H8800] That thou mayest say H631 [H8803] to the prisoners, H3318 [H8798] Go forth; H2822 to them that are in darkness, H1540 [H8734] Show H7462 [H8799] yourselves. They shall feed H1870 in the ways, H4830 and their pastures H8205 shall be in all high places.
  10 H7456 [H8799] They shall not hunger H6770 [H8799] nor thirst; H8273 neither shall the heat H8121 nor sun H5221 [H8686] smite H7355 [H8764] them: for he that fondleth H5090 [H8762] them shall lead H4002 them, even by the springs H4325 of water H5095 [H8762] shall he guide them.
  11 H7760 [H8804] And I will make H2022 all my mountains H1870 a way, H4546 and my highways H7311 [H8799] shall be exalted.
  12 H935 [H8799] Behold, these shall come H7350 from far: H6828 and, lo, these from the north H3220 and from the west; H776 and these from the land H5515 of Sinim.
  13 H7442 [H8798] Shout for joy, H8064 O heavens; H1523 [H8798] and be joyful, H776 O earth; H6476 [H8798] and break forth H7440 into shouting, H2022 O mountains: H3068 for the LORD H5162 [H8765] hath comforted H5971 his people, H7355 [H8762] and will fondle H6041 his depressed.
  14 H6726 But Zion H559 [H8799] said, H3068 The LORD H5800 [H8804] hath forsaken H136 me, and my Sovereign H7911 [H8804] hath forgotten me.
  15 H802 Can a woman H7911 [H8799] forget H5764 her nursing child, H7355 [H8763] that she should not have compassion H1121 on the son H990 of her womb? H7911 [H8799] yea, they may forget, H7911 [H8799] yet I will not forget thee.
  16 H2710 [H8804] Behold, I have graven H3709 thee upon my palms; H2346 thy walls H8548 are continually before me.
  17 H1121 Thy sons H4116 [H8765] shall make haste; H2040 [H8764] thine ones pulling down H2717 [H8688] and they that made thee waste H3318 [H8799] shall go forth from thee.
  18 H5375 [H8798] Lift up H5869 thine eyes H5439 all around, H7200 [H8798] and behold: H6908 [H8738] all these gather themselves together, H935 [H8804] and come H2416 to thee. As I live, H5002 [H8803] saith H3068 the LORD, H3847 [H8799] thou shalt surely clothe H5716 thee with them all, as with an ornament, H7194 [H8762] and bind H3618 them on thee, as a bride doeth.
  19 H2723 For thy dry H8074 [H8802] and thy desolate places, H776 and the land H2035 of thy demolition, H3334 [H8799] shall even now be too narrow H3427 [H8802] by reason of the inhabitants, H1104 [H8764] and they that swallowed thee up H7368 [H8804] shall be far away.
  20 H1121 The sons H7923 who thou shalt have, after thou hast lost H559 [H8799] the other, shall say H241 again in thine ears, H4725 The place H6862 is too small H5066 [H8798] for me: give H4725 place H3427 [H8799] to me that I may dwell.
  21 H559 [H8804] Then shalt thou say H3824 in thy heart, H3205 [H8804] Who hath begotten H7921 [H8803] these for me, seeing I have lost my children, H1565 and am desolate, H1540 [H8802] a captive, H5493 [H8803] and moving to and fro? H1431 [H8765] and who hath brought up H7604 [H8738] these? Behold, I was left H375 alone; these, where have they been?
  22 H559 [H8804] Thus saith H136 the Sovereign H3069 LORD, H5375 [H8799] Behold, I will lift up H3027 my hand H1471 to the nations, H7311 [H8686] and set up H5251 my standard H5971 to the people: H935 [H8689] and they shall bring H1121 thy sons H2684 in their arms, H1323 and thy daughters H5375 [H8735] shall be carried H3802 upon their shoulders.
  23 H4428 And kings H539 [H8802] shall be thy nursing fathers, H8282 and their queens H3243 [H8688] thy nursing mothers: H7812 [H8691] they shall bow H639 to thee with their nose H776 toward the earth, H3897 [H8762] and lick up H6083 the dust H7272 of thy feet; H3045 [H8804] and thou shalt know H3068 that I am the LORD: H954 [H8799] for they shall not be pale H6960 [H8802] that wait for me.
  24 H4455 Shall the prey H3947 [H8714] be taken H1368 from the mighty, H6662 or the lawful H7628 captive H4422 [H8735] delivered?
  25 H559 [H8804] But thus saith H3068 the LORD, H7628 Even the captives H1368 of the mighty H3947 [H8714] shall be taken away, H4455 and the prey H6184 of the terrible H4422 [H8735] shall be delivered: H7378 [H8799] for I will contend H3401 with him that contendeth H3467 [H8686] with thee, and I will liberate H1121 thy sons.
  26 H398 [H8689] And I will feed H3238 [H8688] them that oppress H1320 thee with their own flesh; H7937 [H8799] and they shall be drunk H1818 with their own blood, H6071 as with sweet wine: H1320 and all flesh H3045 [H8804] shall know H3068 that I the LORD H3467 [H8688] am thy Liberator H1350 [H8802] and thy Redeemer, H46 the mighty One H3290 of Jacob.
