The Book of the Prophet Isaiah

Chapter 51

1

Hearken3 to me, ye that follow after6 righteousness, ye that seek18 the LORD: look54 unto the rock [whence] ye are hewn,27 and to the hole of the pit [whence] ye are digged.27

2

Look54 unto Abraham your father, and unto Sarah [that] bare34 you: for I called1 him alone, and blessed17 him, and increased55 him.

3

For the LORD shall comfort14 Zion: he will comfort14 all her waste places; and he will make4 her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the LORD; joy and gladness shall be found11 therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody.

4

Hearken54 unto me, my people; and give ear54 unto me, O my nation: for a law shall proceed4 from me, and I will make my judgment to rest55 for a light of the people.

5

My righteousness [is] near; my salvation is gone forth,1 and mine arms shall judge4 the people; the isles shall wait17 upon me, and on mine arm shall they trust.17

6

Lift up3 your eyes to the heavens, and look54 upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away8 like smoke, and the earth shall wax old4 like a garment, and they that dwell6 therein shall die4 in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.11

7

Hearken3 unto me, ye that know6 righteousness, the people in whose heart [is] my law; fear4 ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid11 of their revilings.

8

For the moth shall eat4 them up like a garment, and the worm shall eat4 them like wool: but my righteousness shall be for ever, and my salvation from generation to generation.

9

Awake,3 awake,3 put on3 strength, O arm of the LORD; awake,3 as in the ancient days, in the generations of old. [Art] thou not it that hath cut56 Rahab, [and] wounded26 the dragon?

10

[Art] thou not it which hath dried56 the sea, the waters of the great deep; that hath made1 the depths of the sea a way for the ransomed7 to pass over?2

11

Therefore the redeemed7 of the LORD shall return,4 and come1 with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy [shall be] upon their head: they shall obtain55 gladness and joy; [and] sorrow and mourning shall flee away.1

12

I, [even] I, [am] he that comforteth18 you: who [art] thou, that thou shouldest be afraid4 of a man [that] shall die,4 and of the son of man [which] shall be made11 [as] grass;

13

And forgettest4 the LORD thy maker,6 that hath stretched forth6 the heavens, and laid the foundations5 of the earth; and hast feared17 continually every day because of the fury of the oppressor,56 as if he were ready31 to destroy?53 and where [is] the fury of the oppressor?56

14

The captive exile6 hasteneth14 that he may be loosed,9 and that he should not die4 in the pit, nor that his bread should fail.4

15

But I [am] the LORD thy God, that divided6 the sea, whose waves roared:4 The LORD of hosts [is] his name.

16

And I have put4 my words in thy mouth, and I have covered14 thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant2 the heavens, and lay the foundations2 of the earth, and say2 unto Zion, Thou [art] my people.

17

Awake,112 awake,112 stand up,3 O Jerusalem, which hast drunk1 at the hand of the LORD the cup of his fury; thou hast drunken1 the dregs of the cup of trembling, [and] wrung [them] out.1

18

[There is] none to guide18 her among all the sons [whom] she hath brought forth;1 neither [is there any] that taketh56 her by the hand of all the sons [that] she hath brought up.14

19

These two [things] are come6 unto thee; who shall be sorry4 for thee? desolation, and destruction, and the famine, and the sword: by whom shall I comfort17 thee?

20

Thy sons have fainted,27 they lie1 at the head of all the streets, as a wild bull in a net: they are full of the fury of the LORD, the rebuke of thy God.

21

Therefore hear3 now this, thou afflicted, and drunken,7 but not with wine:

22

Thus saith1 thy Lord the LORD, and thy God [that] pleadeth4 the cause of his people, Behold, I have taken1 out of thine hand the cup of trembling, [even] the dregs of the cup of my fury; thou shalt no more55 drink2 it again:

23

But I will put1 it into the hand of them that afflict56 thee; which have said1 to thy soul, Bow down,3 that we may go over:4 and thou hast laid4 thy body as the ground, and as the street, to them that went over.6
