023:044:001
Yet now hear,
O Jacob my servant;
and Israel,
whom I have chosen:


023:044:002
Thus saith the LORD that made thee,
and formed thee from the womb,
which will help thee;
Fear not,
O Jacob,
my servant;
and thou,
Jesurun,
whom I have chosen.


023:044:003
For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty,
and floods upon the dry ground:
I will pour my spirit upon thy seed,
and my blessing upon thine offspring:


023:044:004
And they shall spring up as among the grass,
as willows by the water courses.


023:044:005
One shall say,
I am the LORD's;
and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob;
and another shall subscribe with his hand unto the LORD,
and surname himself by the name of Israel.


023:044:006
Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel,
and his redeemer the LORD of hosts;
I am the first,
and I am the last;
and beside me there is no God.


023:044:007
And who,
as I,
shall call,
and shall declare it,
and set it in order for me,
since I appointed the ancient people?
and the things that are coming,
and shall come,
let them shew unto them.


023:044:008
Fear ye not,
neither be afraid:
have not I told thee from that time,
and have declared it?
ye are even my witnesses.
Is there a God beside me?
yea,
there is no God;
I know not any.


023:044:009
They that make a graven image are all of them vanity;
and their delectable things shall not profit;
and they are their own witnesses;
they see not,
nor know;
that they may be ashamed.


023:044:010
Who hath formed a god,
or molten a graven image that is profitable for nothing?


023:044:011
Behold,
all his fellows shall be ashamed:
and the workmen,
they are of men:
let them all be gathered together,
let them stand up;
yet they shall fear,
and they shall be ashamed together.


023:044:012
The smith with the tongs both worketh in the coals,
and fashioneth it with hammers,
and worketh it with the strength of his arms:
yea,
he is hungry,
and his strength faileth:
he drinketh no water,
and is faint.


023:044:013
The carpenter stretcheth out his rule;
he marketh it out with a line;
he fitteth it with planes,
and he marketh it out with the compass,
and maketh it after the figure of a man,
according to the beauty of a man;
that it may remain in the house.


023:044:014
He heweth him down cedars,
and taketh the cypress and the oak,
which he strengtheneth for himself among the trees of the forest:
he planteth an ash,
and the rain doth nourish it.


023:044:015
Then shall it be for a man to burn:
for he will take thereof,
and warm himself;
yea,
he kindleth it,
and baketh bread;
yea,
he maketh a god,
and worshippeth it;
he maketh it a graven image,
and falleth down thereto.


023:044:016
He burneth part thereof in the fire;
with part thereof he eateth flesh;
he roasteth roast,
and is satisfied:
yea,
he warmeth himself,
and saith,
Aha,
I am warm,
I have seen the fire:


023:044:017
And the residue thereof he maketh a god,
even his graven image:
he falleth down unto it,
and worshippeth it,
and prayeth unto it,
and saith,
Deliver me;
for thou art my god.


023:044:018
They have not known nor understood:
for he hath shut their eyes,
that they cannot see;
and their hearts,
that they cannot understand.


023:044:019
And none considereth in his heart,
neither is there knowledge nor understanding to say,
I have burned part of it in the fire;
yea,
also I have baked bread upon the coals thereof;
I have roasted flesh,
and eaten it:
and shall I make the residue thereof an abomination?
shall I fall down to the stock of a tree?


023:044:020
He feedeth on ashes:
a deceived heart hath turned him aside,
that he cannot deliver his soul,
nor say,
Is there not a lie in my right hand?


023:044:021
Remember these,
O Jacob and Israel;
for thou art my servant:
I have formed thee;
thou art my servant:
O Israel,
thou shalt not be forgotten of me.


023:044:022
I have blotted out,
as a thick cloud,
thy transgressions,
and,
as a cloud,
thy sins:
return unto me;
for I have redeemed thee.


023:044:023
Sing,
O ye heavens;
for the LORD hath done it:
shout,
ye lower parts of the earth:
break forth into singing,
ye mountains,
O forest,
and every tree therein:
for the LORD hath redeemed Jacob,
and glorified himself in Israel.


023:044:024
Thus saith the LORD,
thy redeemer,
and he that formed thee from the womb,
I am the LORD that maketh all things;
that stretcheth forth the heavens alone;
that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;


023:044:025
That frustrateth the tokens of the liars,
and maketh diviners mad;
that turneth wise men backward,
and maketh their knowledge foolish;


023:044:026
That confirmeth the word of his servant,
and performeth the counsel of his messengers;
that saith to Jerusalem,
Thou shalt be inhabited;
and to the cities of Judah,
Ye shall be built,
and I will raise up the decayed places thereof:


023:044:027
That saith to the deep,
Be dry,
and I will dry up thy rivers:


023:044:028
That saith of Cyrus,
He is my shepherd,
and shall perform all my pleasure:
even saying to Jerusalem,
Thou shalt be built;
and to the temple,
Thy foundation shall be laid.
