And now, thus said Jehovah, Thy Creator, O Jacob, and thy
Fashioner, O Israel, Be not afraid, for I have redeemed thee, I have called on
thy name -- thou art Mine.
When thou passest into waters, I am with thee, And
into floods, they do not overflow thee, When thou goest into fire, thou art not
burnt, And a flame doth not burn against thee.
For I -- Jehovah thy God, The Holy One of Israel, thy
Saviour, I have appointed Egypt thine atonement, Cush and Seba in thy stead.
Since thou wast precious in Mine eyes, Thou wast honoured,
and I have loved thee, And I appoint men in thy stead, And peoples instead of
Be not afraid, for I am with thee, From the east I
bring in thy seed, And from the west I gather thee.
I am saying to the north, 'Give up,' And to the south,
'Restrain not.' Bring in My sons from afar, And My daughters from the end of
Every one who is called by My name, Even for My honour I
have created him, I have formed him, yea, I have made him.
He brought out a blind people who have eyes, And deaf ones
who have ears.
All the nations have been gathered together, And the peoples
are assembled, Who among them declareth this, And former things causeth us to
hear? They give their witnesses, And they are declared righteous, And they hear
and say, 'Truth.'
Ye are My witnesses, an affirmation of Jehovah, And
My servant whom I have chosen, So that ye know and give credence to Me, And
understand that I am He, Before Me there was no God formed, And after Me
there is none.
I -- I am Jehovah, And besides Me there is no saviour.
I -- I declared, and saved, and proclaimed, And there is no
stranger with you, And ye are My witnesses, an affirmation of Jehovah,
And I am God.
Even from the day I am He, And there is no deliverer
from My hand, I work, and who doth turn it back?
Thus said Jehovah, your Redeemer, The Holy One of Israel:
'For your sake I have sent to Babylon, And caused bars to descend -- all of
them, And the Chaldeans, whose song is in the ships.
I am Jehovah, your Holy One, Creator of Israel, your
Thus said Jehovah, Who is giving in the sea a way, And in
the strong waters a path.
Who is bringing forth chariot and horse, A force, even a
strong one: 'Together they lie down -- they rise not, They have been
extinguished, As flax they have been quenched.'
Remember not former things, And ancient things consider not.
Lo, I am doing a new thing, now it springeth up, Do ye not
know it? Yea, I put in a wilderness a way, In a desolate place -- floods.
Honour me doth the beast of the field, Dragons and daughters
of an ostrich, For I have given in a wilderness waters, Floods in a desolate
place, To give drink to My people -- My chosen.
This people I have formed for Myself, My praise they
And Me thou hast not called, O Jacob, For thou hast been
wearied of me, O Israel,
Thou hast not brought in to Me, The lamb of thy
burnt-offerings, And with thy sacrifices thou hast not honoured Me, I
have not caused thee to serve with a present, Nor wearied thee with
Thou hast not bought for Me with money sweet cane, And with
the fat of thy sacrifices hast not filled Me, Only -- thou hast caused Me to
serve with thy sins, Thou hast wearied Me with thine iniquities.
I -- I am He who is blotting out Thy transgressions
for Mine own sake, And thy sins I do not remember.
Cause me to remember -- we are judged together, Declare thou
that thou mayest be justified.
Thy first father sinned, And thine interpreters transgressed
And I pollute princes of the sanctuary, And I give Jacob to
destruction, and Israel to revilings!
