Isaiah 441 Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant, and Israel, who I have chosen: 2 Thus saith Jehovah that made thee, and formed thee from the womb, who will help thee: Fear not, O Jacob my servant; and thou, Jeshurun, whom I have chosen. 3 For I will pour water upon ▼ him that is thirsty, and streams upon the dry ground; I will pour my Spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring: ▼
▼ 1) Or the thirsty land4 and they shall spring up among the grass, as willows by the watercourses. 5 One shall say, I am Jehovah’s; and another shall ▼ call himself by the name of Jacob; and another shall ▼ subscribe with his hand unto Jehovah, and ▼
▼ 3surname himself by the name of Israel. ▼
▼ 1) Or proclaim the name 2) Or write on his hand, Unto Jehovah 3) Or give for a title the name of Israel6 Thus saith Jehovah, the King of Israel, and his Redeemer, Jehovah of hosts: I am the first, and I am the last; and besides me there is no God. 7 ▼ And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I established the ancient people? and the things that are coming, and that shall come to pass, let them ▼ declare. ▼
▼ 1) Or And who, as I, can proclaim? let him declare it etc 2) Or declare unto them8 Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have I not declared unto thee of old, and showed it? and ye are my witnesses. Is there a God besides me? yea, there is no Rock; I know not any. 9 They that fashion a graven image are all of them ▼ vanity; and the things that they delight in shall not profit; and their own witnesses see not, nor know: that they may be put to shame. ▼
▼ 1) Or confusion10 Who hath fashioned a god, or molten an image that is profitable for nothing? 11 Behold, ▼ all his fellows shall be put to shame; and the workmen, they are of men: let them all be gathered together, let them stand up; they shall fear, they shall be put to shame together. ▼
▼ 1) Or all that join themselves thereto12 The smith ▼ maketh an axe, and worketh in the coals, and fashioneth it with hammers, and worketh it with his strong arm: yea, he is hungry, and his strength faileth; he drinketh no water, and is faint. ▼
▼ 1) Or, sharpeneth a tool13 The carpenter stretcheth out a line; he marketh it out with ▼ a pencil; he shapeth it with planes, and he marketh it out with the compasses, and shapeth it after the figure of a man, according to the beauty of a man, to dwell in a house. ▼
▼ 1) Or red ochre14 He heweth him down cedars, and taketh the holm-tree and the oak, and strengtheneth for himself one among the trees of the forest: he planteth ▼ a fir-tree, and the rain doth nourish it. ▼
▼ 1) Or an ash15 Then shall it be for a man to burn; and he taketh thereof, and warmeth 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. 16 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. ▼
▼ 1) Or the half17 And the residue thereof he maketh a god, even his graven image; he falleth down unto it and worshippeth, and prayeth unto it, and saith, Deliver me; for thou art my god. 18 They know not, neither do they consider: for he hath ▼ shut their eyes, that they cannot see; and their hearts, that they cannot understand. ▼
▼ 1) Heb daubed19 And none calleth to mind, 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? 20 He feedeth on ashes; a deceived heart hath turned him aside; and he cannot deliver his soul, nor say, Is there not a lie in my right hand? 21 Remember these things, 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. 22 I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee. 23 Sing, O ye heavens, for Jehovah hath done it; shout, ye lower parts of the earth; break forth into singing, ye mountains, O forest, and every tree therein: for Jehovah hath redeemed Jacob, and will glorify himself in Israel. 24 Thus saith Jehovah, thy Redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb: I am Jehovah, that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth ▼ (who is with me?); ▼
▼ 1) Another reading is by myself25 that frustrateth the signs of the ▼ liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish; ▼
▼ 1) Or boasters26 that confirmeth the word of his servant, and performeth the counsel of his messengers; that saith of Jerusalem, She shall be inhabited; and of the cities of Judah, They shall be built, and I will raise up the waste places thereof; 27 that saith to the deep, Be dry, and I will dry up thy rivers; 28 That saith of ▼ Cyrus, He is my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasure, even saying of Jerusalem, She shall be built; ▼ and of the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid. ▼
▼ 1) Heb Coresh 2) Or and the foundation of the temple shall be laid
