The Book of the Prophet Isaiah

Chapter 43

1

But now thus saith1 the LORD that created6 thee, O Jacob, and he that formed6 thee, O Israel, Fear4 not: for I have redeemed1 thee, I have called1 [thee] by thy name; thou [art] mine.

2

When thou passest through4 the waters, I [will be] with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow4 thee: when thou walkest4 through the fire, thou shalt not be burned;11 neither shall the flame kindle4 upon thee.

3

For I [am] the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour:56 I gave1 Egypt [for] thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.

4

Since thou wast precious1 in my sight, thou hast been honourable,8 and I have loved1 thee: therefore will I give4 men for thee, and people for thy life.

5

Fear4 not: for I [am] with thee: I will bring55 thy seed from the east, and gather17 thee from the west;

6

I will say4 to the north, Give up;3 and to the south, Keep not back:4 bring54 my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth;

7

[Even] every one that is called12 by my name: for I have created1 him for my glory, I have formed1 him; yea, I have made1 him.

8

Bring forth54 the blind people that have eyes, and the deaf that have ears.

9

Let all the nations be gathered8 together, and let the people be assembled:11 who among them can declare55 this, and shew55 us former things? let them bring forth4 their witnesses, that they may be justified:4 or let them hear,4 and say,4 [It is] truth.

10

Ye [are] my witnesses, saith7 the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen:1 that ye may know4 and believe55 me, and understand4 that I [am] he: before me there was no God formed,8 neither shall there be after me.

11

I, [even] I, [am] the LORD; and beside me [there is] no saviour.56

12

I have declared,52 and have saved,52 and I have shewed,52 when [there was] no strange5 [god] among you: therefore ye [are] my witnesses, saith7 the LORD, that I [am] God.

13

Yea, before the day [was] I [am] he; and [there is] none that can deliver56 out of my hand: I will work,4 and who shall let55 it?

14

Thus saith1 the LORD, your redeemer,6 the Holy One of Israel; For your sake I have sent14 to Babylon, and have brought down52 all their nobles, and the Chaldeans, whose cry [is] in the ships.

15

I [am] the LORD, your Holy One, the creator6 of Israel, your King.

16

Thus saith1 the LORD, which maketh6 a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters;

17

Which bringeth forth56 the chariot and horse, the army and the power; they shall lie down4 together, they shall not rise:4 they are extinct,1 they are quenched1 as tow.

18

Remember4 ye not the former things, neither consider113 the things of old.

19

Behold, I will do6 a new thing; now it shall spring forth;4 shall ye not know4 it? I will even make4 a way in the wilderness, [and] rivers in the desert.

20

The beast of the field shall honour17 me, the dragons and the owls: 3284 because I give1 waters in the wilderness, [and] rivers in the desert, to give drink53 to my people, my chosen.

21

This people have I formed1 for myself; they shall shew forth17 my praise.

22

But thou hast not called1 upon me, O Jacob; but thou hast been weary1 of me, O Israel.

23

Thou hast not brought52 me the small cattle of thy burnt offerings; neither hast thou honoured14 me with thy sacrifices. I have not caused thee to serve52 with an offering, nor wearied52 thee with incense.

24

Thou hast bought1 me no sweet cane with money, neither hast thou filled52 me with the fat of thy sacrifices: but thou hast made me to serve52 with thy sins, thou hast wearied52 me with thine iniquities.

25

I, [even] I, [am] he that blotteth out6 thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember4 thy sins.

26

Put me in remembrance:54 let us plead11 together: declare16 thou, that thou mayest be justified.4

27

Thy first father hath sinned,1 and thy teachers56 have transgressed1 against me.

28

Therefore I have profaned17 the princes of the sanctuary, and have given4 Jacob to the curse, and Israel to reproaches.
