Babylon’s Idols and the True God1 a Bel has bowed down, Nebo stoops over;
Their images are consigned to the beasts and the cattle.
The things ▼
▼ Lit carried by youthat you carry are burdensome,
A load for the weary beast.
2They stooped over, they have bowed down together;
They could not rescue the burden,
▼ Or their soul hashave themselves d gone into captivity.
3 e “Listen to Me, O house of Jacob,
And all f the remnant of the house of Israel,
You who have been g borne by Me from ▼
▼ Lit the bellybirth
And have been carried from the womb;
4Even to your old age i I ▼
▼ Lit I am Hewill be the same,
And even to your ▼
▼ Lit gray hairs, l graying years I will bear you!
I have ▼
▼ Or made youdone it, and I will carry you;
And I will bear you and I will deliver you.
5 n “To whom would you liken Me
And make Me equal and compare Me,
That we would be alike?
6“Those who o lavish gold from the purse
And weigh silver on the scale
Hire a goldsmith, and he makes it into a god;
They p bow down, indeed they worship it.
7“They q lift it upon the shoulder and carry it;
They set it in its place and it stands there.
r It does not move from its place.
Though one may cry to it, it s cannot answer;
It t cannot deliver him from his distress.
8 u “Remember this, and be ▼
▼ Lit firmassured;
w Recall it to ▼
▼ Lit heartmind, you y transgressors.
9“Remember the z former things long past,
For I am God, and there is aa no other;
I am God, and there is ab no one like Me,
10Declaring the end from the beginning,
And from ancient times things which have not been done,
Saying, ‘ ac My purpose will be established,
And I will accomplish all My good pleasure’;
11Calling a ad bird of prey from the ae east,
The man of ▼
▼ Lit HisMy purpose from a far country.
Truly I have ag spoken; truly I will bring it to pass.
I have planned it, surely I will do it.
12 ah “Listen to Me, you ai stubborn-minded,
Who are aj far from righteousness.
13“I ak bring near My righteousness, it is not far off;
And My salvation will not delay.
And I will grant al salvation in Zion,
And My am glory for Israel.
