023:048:001
Hear ye this,
O house of Jacob,
which are called by the name of Israel,
and are come forth out of the waters of Judah,
which swear by the name of the LORD,
and make mention of the God of Israel,
but not in truth,
nor in righteousness.


023:048:002
For they call themselves of the holy city,
and stay themselves upon the God of Israel;
The LORD of hosts is his name.


023:048:003
I have declared the former things from the beginning;
and they went forth out of my mouth,
and I shewed them;
I did them suddenly,
and they came to pass.


023:048:004
Because I knew that thou art obstinate,
and thy neck is an iron sinew,
and thy brow brass;


023:048:005
I have even from the beginning declared it to thee;
before it came to pass I shewed it thee:
lest thou shouldest say,
Mine idol hath done them,
and my graven image,
and my molten image,
hath commanded them.


023:048:006
Thou hast heard,
see all this;
and will not ye declare it?
I have shewed thee new things from this time,
even hidden things,
and thou didst not know them.


023:048:007
They are created now,
and not from the beginning;
even before the day when thou heardest them not;
lest thou shouldest say,
Behold,
I knew them.


023:048:008
Yea,
thou heardest not;
yea,
thou knewest not;
yea,
from that time that thine ear was not opened:
for I knew that thou wouldest deal very treacherously,
and wast called a transgressor from the womb.


023:048:009
For my name's sake will I defer mine anger,
and for my praise will I refrain for thee,
that I cut thee not off.


023:048:010
Behold,
I have refined thee,
but not with silver;
I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.


023:048:011
For mine own sake,
even for mine own sake,
will I do it:
for how should my name be polluted?
and I will not give my glory unto another.


023:048:012
Hearken unto me,
O Jacob and Israel,
my called;
I am he;
I am the first,
I also am the last.


023:048:013
Mine hand also hath laid the foundation of the earth,
and my right hand hath spanned the heavens:
when I call unto them,
they stand up together.


023:048:014
All ye,
assemble yourselves,
and hear;
which among them hath declared these things?
The LORD hath loved him:
he will do his pleasure on Babylon,
and his arm shall be on the Chaldeans.


023:048:015
I,
even I,
have spoken;
yea,
I have called him:
I have brought him,
and he shall make his way prosperous.


023:048:016
Come ye near unto me,
hear ye this;
I have not spoken in secret from the beginning;
from the time that it was,
there am I:
and now the Lord GOD,
and his Spirit,
hath sent me.


023:048:017
Thus saith the LORD,
thy Redeemer,
the Holy One of Israel;
I am the LORD thy God which teacheth thee to profit,
which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go.


023:048:018
O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments!
then had thy peace been as a river,
and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea:


023:048:019
Thy seed also had been as the sand,
and the offspring of thy bowels like the gravel thereof;
his name should not have been cut off nor destroyed from before me.


023:048:020
Go ye forth of Babylon,
flee ye from the Chaldeans,
with a voice of singing declare ye,
tell this,
utter it even to the end of the earth;
say ye,
The LORD hath redeemed his servant Jacob.


023:048:021
And they thirsted not when he led them through the deserts:
he caused the waters to flow out of the rock for them:
he clave the rock also,
and the waters gushed out.


023:048:022
There is no peace,
saith the LORD,
unto the wicked.
