A Rebellious People1 “I permitted Myself to be sought by a those who did not ask for Me;
I permitted Myself to be found by those who did not seek Me.
I said, ‘Here am I, here am I,’
To a nation which b did not call on My name.
2 c “I have spread out My hands all day long to a d rebellious people,
Who walk in the way which is not good ▼
▼ Lit afterfollowing their own f thoughts,
3 A people who continually g provoke Me to My face,
Offering sacrifices in h gardens and i burning incense on bricks;
4 Who sit among graves and spend the night in secret places;
Who j eat swine’s flesh,
And the broth of unclean meat is in their pots.
5 “Who say, ‘ k Keep to yourself, do not come near me,
For I am holier than you!’
These are smoke in My ▼
▼ Lit nosenostrils,
A fire that burns all the day.
6 “Behold, it is written before Me,
I will m not keep silent, but n I will repay;
I will even repay into their bosom,
7 Both ▼
▼ Lit yourtheir own p iniquities and the iniquities of their fathers together,” says the Lord.
“Because they have q burned incense on the mountains
And r scorned Me on the hills,
Therefore I will s measure their former work into their bosom.”
8 Thus says the Lord, “As the new wine is found in the cluster,
And one says, ‘Do not destroy it, for there is ▼
▼ Lit blessingbenefit in it,’
So I will act on behalf of My servants
In order u not to destroy ▼
▼ Lit the wholeall of them.
9 “I will bring forth w offspring from Jacob,
And an x heir of My mountains from Judah;
Even y My chosen ones shall inherit it,
And z My servants will dwell there.
10 aa “Sharon will be a pasture land for flocks,
And the ab valley of Achor a resting place for herds,
For My people who ac seek Me.
11 “But you who ad forsake the Lord,
Who forget My ae holy mountain,
Who set a table for ▼
▼ Heb GadFortune,
And who fill cups with mixed wine for ▼
▼ Heb MeniDestiny,
12 I will destine you for the ah sword,
And all of you will bow down to the ai slaughter.
Because I called, but you aj did not answer;
I spoke, but you did not hear.
And you did evil in My sight
And chose that in which I did not delight.”
13 Therefore, thus says the Lord ▼
▼ Heb YHWH, usually rendered LordGod, “Behold, My servants will al eat, but you will be am hungry.
Behold, My servants will an drink, but you will be ao thirsty.
Behold, My servants will ap rejoice, but you will be aq put to shame.
14 “Behold, My servants will ar shout joyfully with a glad heart,
But you will as cry out with a ▼
▼ Lit pain ofheavy heart,
And you will wail with a broken spirit.
15 “You will leave your name for a au curse to My chosen ones,
And the Lord ▼
▼ Heb YHWH, usually rendered LordGod will slay you.
▼ So with Gr; Heb He will call His servantsMy servants will be called by ax another name.
16 “Because he who ▼
▼ Or bless(es) himselfis blessed in the earth
▼ Or bless(es) himselfbe blessed by the ba God of truth;
And he who swears in the earth
Will bb swear by the God of truth;
Because the former troubles are forgotten,
And because they are hidden from My sight!
New Heavens and a New Earth17 “For behold, I create bc new heavens and a new earth;
And the bd former things will not be remembered or come to ▼
▼ Lit heartmind.
18 “But be bf glad and rejoice forever in what I create;
For behold, I create Jerusalem for rejoicing
And her people for gladness.
19 “I will also bg rejoice in Jerusalem and be glad in My people;
And there will no longer be heard in her
The voice of bh weeping and the sound of crying.
20 “No longer will there be ▼
▼ Lit from therein it an infant who lives but a few days,
Or an old man who does bj not ▼
▼ Lit fill outlive out his days;
For the youth will die at the age of one hundred
And the ▼
▼ Lit one who misses the mark, bm one who does not reach the age of one hundred
Will be thought accursed.
21 “They will bn build houses and inhabit them;
They will also bo plant vineyards and eat their fruit.
22 “They will not build and bp another inhabit,
They will not plant and another eat;
For bq as the ▼
▼ Lit dayslifetime of a tree, so will be the days of My people,
And My chosen ones will bs wear out the work of their hands.
23 “They will bt not labor in vain,
Or bear children for calamity;
For they are the ▼
▼ Lit seed, bv offspring of those blessed by the Lord,
And their descendants with them.
24 “It will also come to pass that before they call, I will bw answer; and while they are still speaking, I will hear. 25 “The bx wolf and the lamb will graze together, and the by lion will eat straw like the ox; and bz dust will be the serpent’s food. They will ca do no evil or harm in all My cb holy mountain,” says the Lord.
