Isaiah 451Thus says Jehovah to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have held, to subdue nations before him, and strip kings of their armor; to open the doors before him, and the gates shall not be shut:
2"I will go before you,
and make the rough places smooth.
I will break the doors of brass in pieces,
and cut apart the bars of iron.
3I will give you the treasures of darkness,
and hidden riches of secret places,
that you may know that it is I, Jehovah, who call you by your name,
even the God of Israel.
4For Jacob my servant's sake,
and Israel my chosen,
I have called you by your name.
I have surnamed you,
though you have not known me.
5I am Jehovah, and there is none else.
Besides me, there is no God.
I will strengthen you,
though you have not known me;
6that they may know from the rising of the sun,
and from the west,
that there is none besides me.
I am Jehovah, and there is no one else.
7I form the light,
and create darkness.
I make peace,
and create calamity.
I am Jehovah,
who does all these things.
8Distil, you heavens, from above,
and let the skies pour down righteousness.
Let the earth open, that it may bring forth salvation,
and let it cause righteousness to spring up with it.
I, Jehovah, have created it.
9Woe to him who strives with his Maker-
a clay pot among the clay pots of the earth!
Shall the clay ask him who fashions it, 'What are you making?' ▼
or your work, 'He has no hands?'
10Woe to him who says to a father, 'What have you become the father of?'
or to a mother, 'To what have you given birth?'"
11Thus says Jehovah, the Holy One of Israel,
and his Maker:
"You ask me about the things that are to come, concerning my sons,
and you command me concerning the work of my hands!
12I have made the earth, and created man on it.
I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens;
and I have commanded all their army.
13I have raised him up in righteousness,
and I will make straight all his ways.
He shall build my city,
and he shall let my exiles go free,
not for price nor reward," says Jehovah of hosts.
14Thus says Jehovah: "The labor of Egypt,
and the merchandise of Ethiopia,
and the Sabeans, men of stature, shall come over to you,
and they shall be yours.
They will go after you.
They shall come over in chains;
and they will bow down to you.
They will make supplication to you:
'Surely God is in you; and there is none else.
There is no other god.
15Most certainly you are a God who hid yourself,
God of Israel, the Savior.'"
16They will be disappointed,
yes, confounded, all of them.
Those who are makers of idols will go into confusion together.
17Israel will be saved by Jehovah with an everlasting salvation.
You will not be disappointed nor confounded to ages everlasting.
18For thus says Jehovah who created the heavens,
the God who formed the earth and made it,
who established it and did not create it a waste,
who formed it to be inhabited:
"I am Jehovah;
and there is no other.
19I have not spoken in secret,
in a place of the land of darkness.
I did not say to the seed of Jacob, 'Seek me in vain.'
I, Jehovah, speak righteousness.
I declare things that are right.
20Assemble yourselves and come.
Draw near together, you who have escaped from the nations.
Those have no knowledge who carry the wood of their engraved image,
and pray to a god that can't save.
21Declare and bring it forth.
Yes, let them take counsel together: who has shown this from ancient time? Who has declared it of old? Haven't I, Jehovah? and there is no God else besides me, a just God and a Savior; there is no one besides me. 22Look to me, and be you saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is none else. 23By myself have I sworn, the word is gone forth from my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, that to me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear. ▼
▼Romans 14:1124Only in Jehovah, it is said of me, is righteousness and strength; even to him shall men come; and all those who were incensed against him shall be disappointed. 25In Jehovah shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory.
