023:051:001
Hearken to me,
ye that follow after righteousness,
ye that seek the LORD:
look unto the rock whence ye are hewn,
and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged.


023:051:002
Look unto Abraham your father,
and unto Sarah that bare you:
for I called him alone,
and blessed him,
and increased him.


023:051:003
For the LORD shall comfort Zion:
he will comfort all her waste places;
and he will make her wilderness like Eden,
and her desert like the garden of the LORD;
joy and gladness shall be found therein,
thanksgiving,
and the voice of melody.


023:051:004
Hearken unto me,
my people;
and give ear unto me,
O my nation:
for a law shall proceed from me,
and I will make my judgment to rest for a light of the people.


023:051:005
My righteousness is near;
my salvation is gone forth,
and mine arms shall judge the people;
the isles shall wait upon me,
and on mine arm shall they trust.


023:051:006
Lift up your eyes to the heavens,
and look upon the earth beneath:
for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke,
and the earth shall wax old like a garment,
and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner:
but my salvation shall be for ever,
and my righteousness shall not be abolished.


023:051:007
Hearken unto me,
ye that know righteousness,
the people in whose heart is my law;
fear ye not the reproach of men,
neither be ye afraid of their revilings.


023:051:008
For the moth shall eat them up like a garment,
and the worm shall eat them like wool:
but my righteousness shall be for ever,
and my salvation from generation to generation.


023:051:009
Awake,
awake,
put on strength,
O arm of the LORD;
awake,
as in the ancient days,
in the generations of old.
Art thou not it that hath cut Rahab,
and wounded the dragon?


023:051:010
Art thou not it which hath dried the sea,
the waters of the great deep;
that hath made the depths of the sea a way for the ransomed to pass over?


023:051:011
Therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return,
and come with singing unto Zion;
and everlasting joy shall be upon their head:
they shall obtain gladness and joy;
and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.


023:051:012
I,
even I,
am he that comforteth you:
who art thou,
that thou shouldest be afraid of a man that shall die,
and of the son of man which shall be made as grass;


023:051:013
And forgettest the LORD thy maker,
that hath stretched forth the heavens,
and laid the foundations of the earth;
and hast feared continually every day because of the fury of the oppressor,
as if he were ready to destroy?
and where is the fury of the oppressor?


023:051:014
The captive exile hasteneth that he may be loosed,
and that he should not die in the pit,
nor that his bread should fail.


023:051:015
But I am the LORD thy God,
that divided the sea,
whose waves roared:
The LORD of hosts is his name.


023:051:016
And I have put my words in thy mouth,
and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand,
that I may plant the heavens,
and lay the foundations of the earth,
and say unto Zion,
Thou art my people.


023:051:017
Awake,
awake,
stand up,
O Jerusalem,
which hast drunk at the hand of the LORD the cup of his fury;
thou hast drunken the dregs of the cup of trembling,
and wrung them out.


023:051:018
There is none to guide her among all the sons whom she hath brought forth;
neither is there any that taketh her by the hand of all the sons that she hath brought up.


023:051:019
These two things are come unto thee;
who shall be sorry for thee?
desolation,
and destruction,
and the famine,
and the sword:
by whom shall I comfort thee?


023:051:020
Thy sons have fainted,
they lie 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.


023:051:021
Therefore hear now this,
thou afflicted,
and drunken,
but not with wine:


023:051:022
Thus saith thy Lord the LORD,
and thy God that pleadeth the cause of his people,
Behold,
I have taken out of thine hand the cup of trembling,
even the dregs of the cup of my fury;
thou shalt no more drink it again:


023:051:023
But I will put it into the hand of them that afflict thee;
which have said to thy soul,
Bow down,
that we may go over:
and thou hast laid thy body as the ground,
and as the street,
to them that went over.
