[IS]   ISAIAH

» Isaiah 1

¶ Isaiah 1 v1

{ heart }   [IS] 1v1

The vision of Isaiah, the son of Amoz,
which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem
in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah,
kings of Judah.

¶ Isaiah 1 v2-3

{ heart }   [IS] 1v2

Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth;
for the LORD hath spoken:


I have nourished and brought up children,
and they have rebelled against ME.

{ heart }   [IS] 1v3

The ox knoweth his owner,
and the ass his master's crib;
but Israel doth not know,
MY people doth not consider.

¶ Isaiah 1 v4-9

{ heart }   [IS] 1v4

Ah, sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity,
a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters;
they have forsaken the LORD,
they have provoked the HOLY ONE of Israel
unto anger,
they are gone away backward.

{ heart }   [IS] 1v5

Why should ye be stricken any more?
ye will revolt more and more;
the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.

{ heart }   [IS] 1v6

From the sole of the foot even unto the head
there is no soundness in it;
but wounds, and bruises, and putrefying sores:
they have not been closed, neither bound up,
neither mollified with ointment.

{ heart }   [IS] 1v7

Your country is desolate,
your cities are burnt with fire;
your land, foreigners devour it in your presence,
and it is desolate, as overthrown by foreigners.

{ heart }   [IS] 1v8

And the daughter of Zion is left
as a cottage in a vineyard,
as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers,
as a besieged city.

{ heart }   [IS] 1v9

Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us
a very small remnant,
we should have been as Sodom,
and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.

¶ Isaiah 1 v10-17

{ heart }   [IS] 1v10

Hear the word of the LORD,
ye rulers of Sodom;
give ear unto the law of our GOD,
ye people of Gomorrah.

{ heart }   [IS] 1v11

To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices
unto ME?


Saith the LORD;

I AM full of the burnt offerings of rams,
and the fat of fed beasts;
and I delight not in the blood
of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he-goats.

{ heart }   [IS] 1v12

When ye come to appear before ME,
who hath required this at your hand,
to tread MY courts?

{ heart }   [IS] 1v13

Bring no more vain oblations;
incense is an abomination unto ME;
the new moons and sabbaths,
the calling of assemblies I cannot away with;
it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.

{ heart }   [IS] 1v14

Your new moons and your appointed feasts
MY soul hateth;
they are a trouble unto ME;
I AM weary to bear them.

{ heart }   [IS] 1v15

And when ye spread forth your hands,
I will hide MINE eyes from you;
yea, when ye make many prayers,
I will not hear:
your hands are full of blood.

{ heart }   [IS] 1v16

Wash ye, make you clean;
put away the evil of your doings
from before MINE eyes;
cease to do evil;

{ heart }   [IS] 1v17

Learn to do well;
seek judgment, relieve the oppressed,
judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.

¶ Isaiah 1 v18-20

{ heart }   [IS] 1v18

Come now, and let us reason together,

Saith the LORD,

Though your sins be as scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they be red like crimson,
they shall be as wool.

{ heart }   [IS] 1v19

If ye be willing and obedient,
ye shall eat the good of the land.

{ heart }   [IS] 1v20

But if ye refuse and rebel,
ye shall be devoured with the sword;
for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

¶ Isaiah 1 v21-28

{ heart }   [IS] 1v21

How is the faithful city become an harlot?
It was full of judgment, righteousness lodged in it;
but now murderers.

{ heart }   [IS] 1v22

Thy silver is become dross,
thy wine mixed with water:

{ heart }   [IS] 1v23

Thy princes are rebellious,
and companions of thieves;
every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards;
they judge not the fatherless,
neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them.

{ heart }   [IS] 1v24

Therefore saith the LORD, the LORD of hosts,
the MIGHTY ONE of Israel,
Ah, I will ease ME of MINE adversaries,
and avenge ME of MINE enemies:

{ heart }   [IS] 1v25

And I will turn MY hand upon thee,
and purely purge away thy dross,
and take away all thy tin.

{ heart }   [IS] 1v26

And I will restore thy judges as at the first,
and thy counselors as at the beginning;
afterward thou shalt be called,

 ‘The city of righteousness, the faithful city’.

{ heart }   [IS] 1v27

Zion shall be redeemed with judgment,
and her converts with righteousness.

{ heart }   [IS] 1v28

And the destruction
of the transgressors and of the sinners
shall be together,
and they that forsake the LORD
shall be consumed.

¶ Isaiah 1 v29-31

{ heart }   [IS] 1v29

For they shall be ashamed of the oaks
which ye have desired,
and ye shall be confounded
for the gardens that ye have chosen.

{ heart }   [IS] 1v30

For ye shall be as an oak whose leaf fadeth,
and as a garden that hath no water.

{ heart }   [IS] 1v31

And the strong shall be as tow,
and the maker of it as a spark,
and they shall both burn together,
and none shall quench them.

» Isaiah 2

¶ Isaiah 2 v1

{ heart }   [IS] 2v1

The word that Isaiah, the son of Amoz, saw
concerning Judah and Jerusalem.

¶ Isaiah 2 v2-5

{ heart }   [IS] 2v2

And it shall come to pass
in the last days,
that the mountain of the LORD'S house
shall be established in the top of the mountains,
and shall be exalted above the hills;
and all nations shall flow unto it.

{ heart }   [IS] 2v3

And many people shall go and say,

 ‘Come ye,
and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD,
to the house of the GOD of Jacob;
and HE will teach us of HIS ways,
and we will walk in HIS paths;
for out of Zion shall go forth the law,
and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem’.

{ heart }   [IS] 2v4

And HE shall judge among the nations,
and shall rebuke many peoples;
and they shall beat their swords into plowshares,
and their spears into pruning hooks;
nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
neither shall they learn war any more.

{ heart }   [IS] 2v5

O house of Jacob, come ye,
and let us walk in the light of the LORD.

¶ Isaiah 2 v6-8

{ heart }   [IS] 2v6

Therefore THOU hast forsaken THY people,
the house of Jacob,
because they be replenished from the east,
and are soothsayers like the Philistines,
and they please themselves
in the children of foreigners.

{ heart }   [IS] 2v7

Their land also is full of silver and gold,
neither is there any end of their treasures;
their land is also full of horses,
neither is there any end of their chariots;

{ heart }   [IS] 2v8

Their land also is full of idols;
they worship the work of their own hands,
that which their own fingers have made.

¶ Isaiah 2 v9-22

{ heart }   [IS] 2v9

And the mean man boweth down,
and the great man humbleth himself;
therefore, forgive them not.

{ heart }   [IS] 2v10

Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust,
for fear of the LORD,
and for the glory of HIS majesty.

{ heart }   [IS] 2v11

The lofty looks of man shall be humbled,
and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down,
and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.

{ heart }   [IS] 2v12

For the day of the LORD of hosts
shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty,
and upon every one that is lifted up,
and he shall be brought low;

{ heart }   [IS] 2v13

And upon all the cedars of Lebanon,
that are high and lifted up,
and upon all the oaks of Bashan,

{ heart }   [IS] 2v14

And upon all the high mountains,
and upon all the hills that are lifted up,

{ heart }   [IS] 2v15

And upon every high tower,
and upon every fenced wall,

{ heart }   [IS] 2v16

And upon all the ships of Tarshish,
and upon all pleasant pictures.

{ heart }   [IS] 2v17

And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down,
and the haughtiness of men shall be made low;
and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.

{ heart }   [IS] 2v18

And the idols HE shall utterly abolish.

{ heart }   [IS] 2v19

And they shall go into the holes of the rocks,
and into the caves of the earth,
for fear of the LORD,
and for the glory of HIS majesty,
when HE ariseth to shake terribly the earth.

{ heart }   [IS] 2v20

In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver,
and his idols of gold,
which they made each one for himself to worship,
to the moles and to the bats;

{ heart }   [IS] 2v21

To go into the clefts of the rocks,
and into the tops of the ragged rocks,
for fear of the LORD,
and for the glory of HIS majesty,
when HE ariseth to shake terribly the earth.

{ heart }   [IS] 2v22

Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils;
for wherein is he to be accounted of?

» Isaiah 3

¶ Isaiah 3 v1-12

{ heart }   [IS] 3v1

For, behold, the LORD,
the LORD of hosts,
doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah
the stay and the staff,
the whole stay of bread,
and the whole stay of water,

{ heart }   [IS] 3v2

The mighty man, and the man of war,
the judge, and the prophet,
and the prudent, and the ancient,

{ heart }   [IS] 3v3

The captain of fifty, and the honorable man,
and the counselor, and the skillful artificer,
and the eloquent orator.

{ heart }   [IS] 3v4

And I will give children to be their princes,
and babes shall rule over them.

{ heart }   [IS] 3v5

And the people shall be oppressed,
every one by another,
and every one by his neighbor;
the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient,
and the base
against the honorable.

{ heart }   [IS] 3v6

When a man shall take hold of his brother
of the house of his father,
saying,

 ‘Thou hast clothing, be thou our ruler,
and let this ruin be under thy hand’.

{ heart }   [IS] 3v7

In that day shall he swear,
saying,

 ‘I will not be an healer;
for in my house is neither bread nor clothing;
make me not a ruler of the people’.

{ heart }   [IS] 3v8

For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen;
because their tongue and their doings are against the LORD,
to provoke the eyes of HIS glory.

{ heart }   [IS] 3v9

The show of their countenance
doth witness against them;
and they declare their sin as Sodom;
they hide it not:
woe unto their soul,
for they have rewarded evil unto themselves.

{ heart }   [IS] 3v10

Say ye to the righteous,

 ‘That it shall be well with him;
for they shall eat the fruit of their doings’.

{ heart }   [IS] 3v11

Woe unto the wicked, it shall be ill with him;
for the reward of his hands shall be given him.

{ heart }   [IS] 3v12

As for MY people,
children are their oppressors,
and women rule over them.
O MY people,
they which lead thee cause thee to err,
and destroy the way of thy paths.

¶ Isaiah 3 v13-15

{ heart }   [IS] 3v13

The LORD standeth up to plead,
and standeth to judge the people.

{ heart }   [IS] 3v14

The LORD will enter into judgment
with the ancients of HIS people,
and their princes thereof;


For ye have eaten up the vineyard;
the spoil of the poor is in your houses.

{ heart }   [IS] 3v15

What mean ye
that ye beat MY people to pieces,
and grind the faces of the poor?


Saith the LORD GOD of hosts.

¶ Isaiah 3 v16-24

{ heart }   [IS] 3v16

Moreover, the LORD saith,

Because the daughters of Zion are haughty,
and walk with stretched forth necks
and wanton eyes,
walking and mincing as they go,
and making a tinkling with their feet;

{ heart }   [IS] 3v17

Therefore the LORD will smite with a scab
the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion,
and the LORD will discover their secret parts.

{ heart }   [IS] 3v18

In that day
the LORD will take away the bravery
of their tinkling ornaments about their feet,
and their cauls, and their round tires
like the moon,

{ heart }   [IS] 3v19

The chains, and the bracelets, and the mufflers,

{ heart }   [IS] 3v20

The bonnets,
and the ornaments of the legs, and the headbands,
and the tablets, and the earrings,

{ heart }   [IS] 3v21

The rings, and nose jewels,

{ heart }   [IS] 3v22

The changeable suits of apparel,
and the mantles, and the wimples,
and the crisping pins,

{ heart }   [IS] 3v23

The glasses, and the fine linen wrappers,
and the hoods, and the veils.

{ heart }   [IS] 3v24

And it shall come to pass,
that instead of sweet smell there shall be stink;
and instead of a girdle, a rent;
and instead of well set hair, baldness;
and instead of a stomacher, a girding of sackcloth;
and burning instead of beauty.

¶ Isaiah 3 v25-26

{ heart }   [IS] 3v25

Thy men shall fall by the sword,
and thy mighty in the war.

{ heart }   [IS] 3v26

And her gates shall lament and mourn;
and she, being desolate, shall sit upon the ground.

» Isaiah 4

¶ Isaiah 4 v1

{ heart }   [IS] 4v1

And in that day
seven women shall take hold of one man,
saying,

 ‘We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel;
only let us be called by thy name,
to take away our reproach’.

¶ Isaiah 4 v2-6

{ heart }   [IS] 4v2

In that day
shall the BRANCH of the LORD
be beautiful and glorious,
and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and comely
for them that are escaped of Israel.

{ heart }   [IS] 4v3

And it shall come to pass,
that he that is left in Zion,
and he that remaineth in Jerusalem,
shall be called

 ‘Holy’, 

Even every one that is written among the living
in Jerusalem,

{ heart }   [IS] 4v4

When the LORD shall have washed away
the filth of the daughters of Zion,
and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem
from the midst thereof by the spirit of judgment,
and by the spirit of burning.

{ heart }   [IS] 4v5

And the LORD will create
upon every dwelling place of Mount Zion,
and upon her assemblies,
a CLOUD and SMOKE by day,
and the shining of a flaming FIRE by night;
for upon all the glory shall be a defense.

{ heart }   [IS] 4v6

And there shall be a tabernacle
for a shadow in the daytime from the heat,
and for a place of refuge,
and for a covert from storm and from rain.

» Isaiah 5

¶ Isaiah 5 v1-7

{ heart }   [IS] 5v1

Now will I sing to my WELL-BELOVED
a song of my BELOVED touching HIS vineyard:

 ‘My WELL-BELOVED hath a vineyard
in a very fruitful hill’;

{ heart }   [IS] 5v2

And HE fenced it,
and gathered out the stones thereof,
and planted it with the choicest vine,
and built a tower in the midst of it,
and also made a winepress therein;
and HE looked for it to bring forth grapes,
and it brought forth wild grapes.

{ heart }   [IS] 5v3

And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem,
and men of Judah,

 ‘Judge,

I pray you,

Betwixt ME and MY vineyard’.

{ heart }   [IS] 5v4

What could have been done more to MY vineyard,
that I have not done in it?
Wherefore, when I looked for it
to bring forth grapes,
brought it forth wild grapes?

{ heart }   [IS] 5v5

And now go to;
I will tell you what I will do to MY vineyard:

 ‘I will take away the hedge thereof,
and it shall be eaten up;
and break down the wall thereof,
and it shall be trodden down’

{ heart }   [IS] 5v6

And I will lay it waste;
it shall not be pruned, nor digged;
but there shall come up briers and thorns;
I will also command the clouds

 ‘That they rain no rain upon it’.

{ heart }   [IS] 5v7

For the vineyard of the LORD of hosts
is the house of Israel,
and the men of Judah HIS pleasant plant;
and HE looked for judgment,
but behold oppression;
for righteousness, but behold a cry.

¶ Isaiah 5 v8-24

{ heart }   [IS] 5v8

Woe unto them
that join house to house, that lay field to field,
till there be no place,
that they may be placed alone
in the midst of the earth.

{ heart }   [IS] 5v9

In mine ears said the LORD of hosts,

Of a truth many houses shall be desolate,
even great and fair, without inhabitant.

{ heart }   [IS] 5v10

Yea, ten acres of vineyard shall yield one bath,
and the seed of an homer shall yield an ephah.

{ heart }   [IS] 5v11

Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning,
that they may follow strong drink;
that continue until night, till wine inflame them.

{ heart }   [IS] 5v12

And the harp, and the viol, the timbrel,
and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts;
but they regard not the work of the LORD,
neither consider the operation of HIS hands.

{ heart }   [IS] 5v13

Therefore MY people are gone into captivity,
because they have no knowledge:
and their honorable men are famished,
and their multitude dried up with thirst.

{ heart }   [IS] 5v14

Therefore hell hath enlarged herself,
and opened her mouth without measure;
and their glory, and their multitude,
and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth,
shall descend into it.

{ heart }   [IS] 5v15

And the mean man shall be brought down,
and the mighty man shall be humbled,
and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled;

{ heart }   [IS] 5v16

But the LORD of hosts shall be exalted in judgment,
and GOD, WHO is holy,
shall be sanctified in righteousness.

{ heart }   [IS] 5v17

Then shall the lambs feed after their manner,
and the waste places of the fat ones
shall sojourners eat.

{ heart }   [IS] 5v18

Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity,
and sin as it were with a cart rope;

{ heart }   [IS] 5v19

That say,

 ‘Let HIM make speed, and hasten HIS work,
that we may see it;
and let the counsel of the HOLY ONE of Israel
draw nigh and come, that we may know it’.

{ heart }   [IS] 5v20

Woe unto them
that call evil, good, and good, evil;
that put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.

{ heart }   [IS] 5v21

Woe unto them
that are wise in their own eyes,
and prudent in their own sight.

{ heart }   [IS] 5v22

Woe unto them
that are mighty to drink wine,
and men of strength to mingle strong drink:

{ heart }   [IS] 5v23

Which justify the wicked for reward,
and take away the righteousness of the righteous
from him.

{ heart }   [IS] 5v24

Therefore, as the fire devoureth the stubble,
and the flame consumeth the chaff,
so their root shall be as rottenness,
and their blossom shall go up as dust,
because they have cast away the law
of the LORD of hosts,
and despised the word of the HOLY ONE of Israel.

¶ Isaiah 5 v25-29

{ heart }   [IS] 5v25

Therefore is the anger of the LORD kindled
against HIS people,
and HE hath stretched forth HIS hand
against them,
and hath smitten them;
and the hills did tremble,
and their carcasses were torn
in the midst of the streets.
For all this HIS anger is not turned away,
but HIS hand is stretched out still.

{ heart }   [IS] 5v26

And HE will lift up an banner
to the nations from far,
and will hiss unto them
from the end of the earth;
and, behold, they shall come with speed swiftly.

{ heart }   [IS] 5v27

None shall be weary nor stumble among them;
none shall slumber nor sleep;
neither shall the girdle of their loins be loosed,
nor the latchet of their shoes be broken;

{ heart }   [IS] 5v28

Whose arrows are sharp,
and all their bows bent,
their horses' hoofs shall be counted like flint,
and their wheels like a whirlwind;

{ heart }   [IS] 5v29

Their roaring shall be like a lion;
they shall roar like young lions;
yea, they shall roar, and lay hold of the prey,
and shall carry it away safely,
and none shall deliver it.

¶ Isaiah 5 v30

{ heart }   [IS] 5v30

And in that day
they shall roar against them like the roaring of the sea;
and if one look unto the land,
behold darkness and sorrow,
and the light is darkened in the heavens thereof.

» Isaiah 6

¶ Isaiah 6 v1-4

{ heart }   [IS] 6v1

In the year that king Uzziah died,
I saw also

 ‘The LORD sitting upon a throne,
high and lifted up,
and HIS train filled the temple’.

{ heart }   [IS] 6v2

Above it stood the Seraphim:
each One had six wings;
with twain He covered His face,
and with twain He covered His feet,
and with twain He did fly.

{ heart }   [IS] 6v3

And One cried unto Another,
and said,


Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts;
the whole earth is full of HIS glory.

{ heart }   [IS] 6v4

And the posts of the door moved
at the voice of Him Who cried,
and the house was filled with smoke.

¶ Isaiah 6 v5-10

{ heart }   [IS] 6v5

Then said I,

 ‘Woe is me; for I am undone;
because I am a man of unclean lips,
and I dwell in the midst of
a people of unclean lips;
for mine eyes have seen the KING,
the LORD of hosts’.

{ heart }   [IS] 6v6

Then flew One of the Seraphim unto me,
having a live coal in His hand,
which He had taken with the tongs
from off the altar.

{ heart }   [IS] 6v7

And He laid it upon my mouth,
and said,


Lo, this hath touched thy lips,
and thine iniquity is taken away,
and thy sin purged.

{ heart }   [IS] 6v8

Also I heard the voice of the LORD,
saying,


Whom shall I send, and who will go for US?

Then I said,

 ‘Here am I, send me’.

{ heart }   [IS] 6v9

And HE said,

Go, and tell this people.

 ‘Hear ye indeed, but understand not;
and see ye indeed, but perceive not’.

{ heart }   [IS] 6v10

Make the heart of this people fat,
and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes;
lest they see with their eyes,
and hear with their ears,
and understand with their heart,
and be convert, and be healed.

¶ Isaiah 6 v11-13

{ heart }   [IS] 6v11

Then said I;

 ‘LORD, how long?’ 

And HE answered,


Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant,
and the houses without man,
and the land be utterly desolate,

{ heart }   [IS] 6v12

And the LORD have removed men far away,
and there be a great forsaking
in the midst of the land.

{ heart }   [IS] 6v13

But yet in it shall be a tenth,
and it shall return, and shall be eaten;
as a teil tree, and as an oak,
whose substance is in them,
when they cast their leaves,
so the holy seed shall be the substance thereof.

» Isaiah 7

¶ Isaiah 7 v1-17

{ heart }   [IS] 7v1

And it came to pass
in the days of Ahaz, the son of Jotham,
the son of Uzziah, king of Judah,
that Rezin, the king of Syria,
and Pekah, the son of Remaliah,
king of Israel,
went up toward Jerusalem to war against it,
but could not prevail against it.

{ heart }   [IS] 7v2

And it was told the house of David,
saying,

Syria is confederate with Ephraim:
and his heart was moved,
and the heart of his people,
as the trees of the wood are moved with the wind.

{ heart }   [IS] 7v3

Then said the LORD unto Isaiah,

Go forth now to meet Ahaz,
thou, and Shear-jashub, thy son,
at the end of the conduit of the upper pool
in the highway of the fuller's field;

{ heart }   [IS] 7v4

And say unto him,

 ‘Take heed, and be quiet;
fear not, neither be fainthearted
for the two tails of these smoking firebrands,
for the fierce anger of Rezin with Syria,
and of the son of Remaliah’.

{ heart }   [IS] 7v5

Because Syria,
Ephraim, and the son of Remaliah,
have taken evil counsel against thee,
saying,

{ heart }   [IS] 7v6

Let us go up against Judah, and vex it,
and let us make a breach therein for us,
and set a king in the midst of it,
even the son of Tabeel.

{ heart }   [IS] 7v7

Thus saith the LORD GOD,
It shall not stand, neither shall it come to pass.

{ heart }   [IS] 7v8

For the head of Syria is Damascus,
and the head of Damascus is Rezin;
and within threescore and five years
shall Ephraim be broken, that it be not a people.

{ heart }   [IS] 7v9

And the head of Ephraim is Samaria,
and the head of Samaria is Remaliah's son:
if ye will not believe,
surely ye shall not be established.

{ heart }   [IS] 7v10

Moreover, the LORD spake again unto Ahaz,
saying,

{ heart }   [IS] 7v11

Ask thee a sign of the LORD, thy GOD;
ask it either in the depth, or in the height above.

{ heart }   [IS] 7v12

But Ahaz said,

I will not ask, neither will I tempt the LORD.

{ heart }   [IS] 7v13

And he said,

Hear ye now, O house of David;

 ‘Is it a small thing for you to weary men,
but will ye weary my GOD also’?

{ heart }   [IS] 7v14

Therefore
the LORD HIMSELF shall give you a sign;


Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a SON,
and shall call HIS NAME

 ‘IMMANUEL’.

{ heart }   [IS] 7v15

Butter and honey shall HE eat,
that HE may know

 ‘To refuse the evil, and choose the good’.

{ heart }   [IS] 7v16

For before the CHILD shall know

 ‘To refuse the evil, and choose the good’, 

The land that thou abhorrest
shall be forsaken of both her kings.

{ heart }   [IS] 7v17

The LORD shall bring upon thee,
and upon thy people, and upon thy father's house,
days that have not come,
from the day that Ephraim departed from Judah,
even the king of Assyria.

¶ Isaiah 7 v18-25

{ heart }   [IS] 7v18

And it shall come to pass
in that day,
that the LORD shall hiss for the fly
that is in the uttermost part of the rivers of Egypt,
and for the bee
that is in the land of Assyria.

{ heart }   [IS] 7v19

And they shall come, and shall rest,
all of them,
in the desolate valleys,
and in the holes of the rocks,
and upon all thorns, and upon all bushes.

{ heart }   [IS] 7v20

In the same day
shall the LORD shave with a razor
that is hired, namely, by them beyond the river,
by the king of Assyria,
the head, and the hair of the feet;
and it shall also consume the beard.

{ heart }   [IS] 7v21

And it shall come to pass
in that day,
that a man shall nourish
a young cow, and two sheep.

{ heart }   [IS] 7v22

And it shall come to pass,
for the abundance of milk that they shall give,
he shall eat butter;
for butter and honey shall every one eat
that is left in the land.

{ heart }   [IS] 7v23

And it shall come to pass
in that day,
that every place shall be,
where there were a thousand vines
worth a thousand shekels of silver,
it shall even be for briers and thorns.

{ heart }   [IS] 7v24

With arrows and with bows shall men come thither,
because all the land shall become briers and thorns.

{ heart }   [IS] 7v25

And on all hills that shall be digged with the mattock,
there shall not come thither
the fear of briers and thorns,
but it shall be for the sending forth of oxen,
and for the treading of lesser cattle.

» Isaiah 8

¶ Isaiah 8 v1-4

{ heart }   [IS] 8v1

Moreover, the LORD said unto me,

Take thee a great roll,
and write in it with a man's pen
concerning Maher-shalal-hash-baz.

{ heart }   [IS] 8v2

And I took unto me faithful witnesses to record,
Uriah the priest,
and Zechariah the son of Jeberechiah.

{ heart }   [IS] 8v3

And I went unto the prophetess;
and she conceived, and bare a son,
then said the LORD to me,


Call his name

 ‘Maher-shalal-hash-baz’.

{ heart }   [IS] 8v4

For before the child shall have knowledge to cry,

 ‘My father, and my mother’, 

The riches of Damascus and the spoil of Samaria
shall be taken away before the king of Assyria.

¶ Isaiah 8 v5-22

{ heart }   [IS] 8v5

The LORD spake also unto me again,
saying,

{ heart }   [IS] 8v6

Forasmuch as this people
refuseth the waters of Shiloah, that go softly,
and rejoice in Rezin and Remaliah's son,

{ heart }   [IS] 8v7

Now therefore,
behold, the LORD bringeth up upon them
the waters of the river, strong and many,
even the king of Assyria, and all his glory;
and he shall come up over all his channels,
and go over all his banks.

{ heart }   [IS] 8v8

And he shall pass through Judah;
he shall overflow and go over,
he shall reach even to the neck;
and the stretching out of his wings
shall fill the breadth of THY land, O IMMANUEL.

{ heart }   [IS] 8v9

Associate yourselves, O ye peoples,
and ye shall be broken in pieces;
and give ear, all ye of far countries:
gird yourselves, and ye shall be broken in pieces;
gird yourselves, and ye shall be broken in pieces.

{ heart }   [IS] 8v10

Take counsel together, and it shall come to nought:
speak the word, and it shall not stand;
for GOD is with us.

{ heart }   [IS] 8v11

For the LORD spake thus to me with a strong hand,
and instructed me
that I should not walk in the way of this people,
saying,

{ heart }   [IS] 8v12

Say ye not,

 ‘A confederacy’, 

To all them,
to whom this people shall say,

 ‘A confederacy’; 

Neither fear ye their fear, nor be afraid.

{ heart }   [IS] 8v13

Sanctify the LORD of hosts HIMSELF;
and let HIM be your fear,
and let HIM be your dread.

{ heart }   [IS] 8v14

And HE shall be for a sanctuary;
but for a stone of stumbling
and for a rock of offence
to both the houses of Israel,
for a gin and for a snare
to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

{ heart }   [IS] 8v15

And many among them shall stumble, and fall,
and be broken, and be snared, and be taken.

{ heart }   [IS] 8v16

Bind up the testimony;
seal the law among my disciples.

{ heart }   [IS] 8v17

And I will wait upon the LORD,
THAT hideth HIS face from the house of Jacob,
and I will look for HIM.

{ heart }   [IS] 8v18

Behold, I and the children
whom the LORD hath given me
are for signs and for wonders in Israel
from the LORD of hosts,
WHICH dwelleth in Mount Zion.

{ heart }   [IS] 8v19

And when they shall say unto you,

 ‘Seek unto them that have familiar spirits,
and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter’: 

Should not a people seek unto their GOD?
Should they seek on behalf of the living to the dead?

{ heart }   [IS] 8v20

To the law and to the testimony;
if they speak not according to this word,
it is because there is no light in them.

{ heart }   [IS] 8v21

And they shall pass through it,
hardly bestead and hungry;
and it shall come to pass,
that when they shall be hungry,
they shall fret themselves,
and curse their king and their GOD,
and look upward.

{ heart }   [IS] 8v22

And they shall look unto the earth,
and behold, trouble and darkness, dimness of anguish;
and they shall be driven to darkness.

» Isaiah 9

¶ Isaiah 9 v1-7

{ heart }   [IS] 9v1

Nevertheless, the dimness shall not be such
as was in her vexation,
when at the first HE lightly afflicted
the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali,
and afterward did more grievously afflict her
by the way of the sea,
beyond Jordan, in Galilee of the nations.

{ heart }   [IS] 9v2

The people that walked in darkness
have seen a great LIGHT;
they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death,
upon them hath the LIGHT shined.

{ heart }   [IS] 9v3

THOU hast multiplied the nation,
and not increased the joy;
they joy before THEE according to the joy in harvest,
and as men rejoice when they divide the spoil.

{ heart }   [IS] 9v4

For THOU hast broken the yoke of his burden,
and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor,
as in the day of Midian.

{ heart }   [IS] 9v5

For every battle of the warrior is with confused noise,
and garments rolled in blood,
but this shall be with burning and fuel of fire.

{ heart }   [IS] 9v6

For unto us a CHILD is born,
unto us a SON is given;
and the government shall be upon HIS shoulder;
and HIS NAME shall be called

 ‘WONDERFUL,
COUNSELOR,
THE MIGHTY GOD,
THE EVERLASTING FATHER,
THE PRINCE OF PEACE’.

{ heart }   [IS] 9v7

Of the increase of HIS government and peace
there shall be no end,
upon the throne of David, and upon HIS kingdom,
to order it, and to establish it
with judgment and with justice
from henceforth even forever:
the zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

¶ Isaiah 9 v8-21

{ heart }   [IS] 9v8

The LORD sent a word into Jacob,
and it hath lighted upon Israel.

{ heart }   [IS] 9v9

And all the people shall know,
even Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria,
that say in the pride and stoutness of heart,

{ heart }   [IS] 9v10

The bricks are fallen down,
but we will build with hewn stones;
the sycamores are cut down,
but we will change them into cedars.

{ heart }   [IS] 9v11

Therefore
the LORD shall set up the adversaries of Rezin
against him,
and join his enemies together;

{ heart }   [IS] 9v12

The Syrians before, and the Philistines behind;
and they shall devour Israel with open mouth:
for all this HIS anger is not turned away,
but HIS hand is stretched out still.

{ heart }   [IS] 9v13

For the people turneth not unto HIM
THAT smiteth them,
neither do they seek the LORD of hosts.

{ heart }   [IS] 9v14

Therefore the LORD will cut off from Israel
head and tail, branch and rush,
in one day.

{ heart }   [IS] 9v15

The ancient and honorable,
he is the head;
and the prophet that teacheth lies,
he is the tail.

{ heart }   [IS] 9v16

For the leaders of this people
cause them to err;
and they that are led of them
are destroyed.

{ heart }   [IS] 9v17

Therefore the LORD shall have no joy
in their young men,
neither shall HE have mercy
on their fatherless and widows;
for every one is an hypocrite and an evildoer,
and every mouth speaketh folly:
for all this HIS anger is not turned away,
but HIS hand is stretched out still.

{ heart }   [IS] 9v18

For wickedness burneth as the fire;
it shall devour the briers and thorns,
and shall kindle in the thickets of the forest,
and they shall mount up like the lifting up of smoke.

{ heart }   [IS] 9v19

Through the wrath of the LORD of hosts
is the land darkened,
and the people shall be as the fuel of the fire;
no man shall spare his brother.

{ heart }   [IS] 9v20

And he shall snatch on the right hand,
and be hungry;
and he shall eat on the left hand,
and they shall not be satisfied:
they shall eat every man the flesh of his own arm:

{ heart }   [IS] 9v21

Manasseh, Ephraim: and Ephraim, Manasseh:
and they together shall be against Judah:
for all this HIS anger is not turned away,
but HIS hand is stretched out still.

» Isaiah 10

¶ Isaiah 10 v1-7

{ heart }   [IS] 10v1

Woe unto them
that decree unrighteous decrees,
and that write grievousness
which they have prescribed:

{ heart }   [IS] 10v2

To turn aside the needy from judgment,
and to take away the right
from the poor of MY people,
that widows may be their prey,
and that they may rob the fatherless.

{ heart }   [IS] 10v3

And what will ye do in the day of visitation,
and in the desolation which shall come from far?
To whom will ye flee for help?
And where will ye leave your glory?

{ heart }   [IS] 10v4

Without ME
they shall bow down under the prisoners,
and they shall fall under the slain.


For all this HIS anger is not turned away,
but HIS hand is stretched out still.

{ heart }   [IS] 10v5

Assyrian, the rod of MINE anger,
and the staff in their hand is MINE indignation.

{ heart }   [IS] 10v6

I will send him against an hypocritical nation,
and against the people of MY wrath
will I give him a charge,

 ‘To take the spoil, and to take the prey,
and to tread them down like the mire of the streets’.

{ heart }   [IS] 10v7

Howbeit, he meaneth not so,
neither doth his heart think so;
but it is in his heart

 ‘To destroy and cut off nations
not a few’.

¶ Isaiah 10 v8-21

{ heart }   [IS] 10v8

For he saith,

 ‘Are not my princes altogether kings’?

{ heart }   [IS] 10v9

Is not Calno as Carchemish?
Is not Hamath as Arpad?
Is not Samaria as Damascus?

{ heart }   [IS] 10v10

As my hand hath found the kingdoms of the idols,
and whose graven images
did excel them of Jerusalem and of Samaria,

{ heart }   [IS] 10v11

Shall I not,
as I have done unto Samaria and her idols,
so do to Jerusalem and her idols?

{ heart }   [IS] 10v12

Wherefore it shall come to pass,
that when the LORD hath performed
HIS whole work upon Mount Zion
and on Jerusalem,


I will punish the fruit of the stout heart
of the king of Assyria,
and the glory of his high looks.

{ heart }   [IS] 10v13

For he saith,

 ‘By the strength of my hand I have done it,
and by my wisdom; for I am prudent:
and I have removed the bounds of the people,
and have robbed their treasures,
and I have put down the inhabitants
like a valiant man’;

{ heart }   [IS] 10v14

And my hand hath found as a nest
the riches of the people;
and as one gathereth eggs that are left,
have I gathered all the earth;
and there was none that moved the wing,
or opened the mouth, or peeped.

{ heart }   [IS] 10v15

Shall the axe boast itself
against him that heweth therewith?
Or shall the saw magnify itself
against him that shaketh it?
as if the rod should shake itself
against them that lift it up,
or as if the staff should lift up itself,
as if it were no wood.

{ heart }   [IS] 10v16

Therefore shall the LORD, the LORD of hosts,
send among his fat ones, leanness;
and under his glory HE shall kindle a burning
like the burning of a fire.

{ heart }   [IS] 10v17

And the LIGHT of Israel shall be for a fire,
and HIS HOLY ONE for a flame;
and it shall burn and devour his thorns and his briers
in one day;

{ heart }   [IS] 10v18

And shall consume the glory of his forest,
and of his fruitful field,
both soul and body;
and they shall be as when a standard-bearer fainteth.

{ heart }   [IS] 10v19

And the rest of the trees of his forest shall be few,
that a child may write them down.

{ heart }   [IS] 10v20

And it shall come to pass
in that day,
that the remnant of Israel,
and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob,
shall no more again stay upon him that smote them;
but shall stay upon the LORD,
the HOLY ONE of Israel, in truth.

{ heart }   [IS] 10v21

The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Jacob,
unto the mighty GOD.

{ heart }   [IS] 10v22

For though thy people, Israel,
be as the sand of the sea,
yet a remnant of them shall return;
the consumption decreed
shall overflow with righteousness.

{ heart }   [IS] 10v23

For the LORD GOD of hosts
shall make a consumption, even determined,
in the midst of all the land.

{ heart }   [IS] 10v24

Therefore, thus saith the LORD
GOD of hosts,


O MY people that dwellest in Zion,
be not afraid of the Assyrian;
he shall smite thee with a rod,
and shall lift up his staff against thee,
after the manner of Egypt.

{ heart }   [IS] 10v25

For yet a very little while,
and the indignation shall cease,
and MINE anger in their destruction.

{ heart }   [IS] 10v26

And the LORD of hosts
shall stir up a scourge for him
according to the slaughter of Midian
at the rock of Oreb;
and as HIS rod was upon the sea,
so shall HE lift it up after the manner of Egypt.

{ heart }   [IS] 10v27

And it shall come to pass
in that day,
that his burden shall be taken away
from off thy shoulder,
and his yoke from off thy neck,
and the yoke shall be destroyed
because of the anointing.

{ heart }   [IS] 10v28

He is come to Aiath; he is passed to Migron;
at Michmash he hath laid up his carriages.

{ heart }   [IS] 10v29

They are gone over the passage;
they have taken up their lodging at Geba;
Ramah is afraid; Gibeah of Saul is fled.

{ heart }   [IS] 10v30

Lift up thy voice, O daughter of Gallim:
cause it to be heard unto Laish, O poor Anathoth.

{ heart }   [IS] 10v31

Madmenah is removed;
the inhabitants of Gebim gather themselves to flee.

{ heart }   [IS] 10v32

As yet shall he remain at Nob that day;
he shall shake his hand
against the mount of the daughter of Zion,
the hill of Jerusalem.

{ heart }   [IS] 10v33

Behold, the LORD, the LORD of hosts,
shall lop the bough with terror;
and the high ones of stature shall be hewn down,

And shall make HIM of quick understanding
in the fear of the LORD;
and HE shall not judge
after the sight of HIS eyes,
neither reprove
after the hearing of HIS ears,

But with righteousness
shall HE judge the poor,
and reprove with equity
for the meek of the earth;
and HE shall smite the earth
with the rod of HIS mouth,
and with the breath of HIS lips
shall HE slay the wicked.

And righteousness shall be the girdle of HIS loins,
and faithfulness the girdle of HIS reins.

of Moab;
the howling thereof unto Eglaim,

The burden of Tyre.

Howl, ye ships of Tarshish; for it is laid waste,
so that there is no house, no entering in;
from the land of Kittim it is revealed to them.

{ heart }   [IS] 23v2

Be still, ye inhabitants of the isle;
thou whom the merchants of Sidon,
that pass over the sea, have replenished.

{ heart }   [IS] 23v3

And by great waters the seed of Shihor,
the harvest of the river, is her revenue;
and she is a mart of nations.

{ heart }   [IS] 23v4

Be thou ashamed, O Sidon;
for the sea hath spoken, even the strength of the sea,
saying,

 ‘I travail not, nor bring forth children,
neither do I nourish up young men,
nor bring up virgins’.

{ heart }   [IS] 23v5

As at the report concerning Egypt,
so shall they be sorely pained at the report of Tyre.

{ heart }   [IS] 23v6

Pass ye over to Tarshish;
howl, ye inhabitants of the isle.

{ heart }   [IS] 23v7

Is this your joyous city,
whose antiquity is of ancient days?
her own feet shall carry her afar off to sojourn.

{ heart }   [IS] 23v8

Who hath taken this counsel against Tyre,
the crowning city, whose merchants are princes,
whose traders are the honorable of the earth?

{ heart }   [IS] 23v9

The LORD of hosts hath purposed it,
to stain the pride of all glory,
and to bring into contempt
all the honorable of the earth.

{ heart }   [IS] 23v10

Pass through thy land as a river,
O daughter of Tarshish;
there is no more strength.

{ heart }   [IS] 23v11

HE stretched out HIS hand over the sea,
HE shook the kingdoms;
the LORD hath given a commandment
against the merchant city,
to destroy the strongholds thereof.

{ heart }   [IS] 23v12

And HE said,

Thou shalt no more rejoice,
O thou oppressed virgin, daughter of Sidon;
arise, pass over to Kittim;
there also shalt thou have no rest.

{ heart }   [IS] 23v13

Behold, the land of the Chaldeans;
this people was not,
till the Assyrian founded it
for them that dwell in the wilderness;
they set up the towers thereof,
they raised up the palaces thereof,
and HE brought it to ruin.

{ heart }   [IS] 23v14

Howl, ye ships of Tarshish;
for your strength is laid waste.

¶ Isaiah 23 v15-18

{ heart }   [IS] 23v15

And it shall come to pass
in that day, that Tyre shall be forgotten seventy years,
according to the days of one king;
after the end of seventy years
shall Tyre sing as an harlot.

{ heart }   [IS] 23v16

Take an harp, go about the city,
thou harlot that hast been forgotten;
make sweet melody, sing many songs,
that thou mayest be remembered.

{ heart }   [IS] 23v17

And it shall come to pass
after the end of seventy years,
that the LORD will visit Tyre,
and she shall turn to her hire,
and shall commit fornication
with all the kingdoms of the world
upon the face of the earth.

{ heart }   [IS] 23v18

And her merchandise and her hire
shall be holiness to the LORD;
it shall not be treasured nor laid up;
for her merchandise shall be for them
that dwell before the LORD,
to eat sufficiently, and for durable clothing.

» Isaiah 24

¶ Isaiah 24 v1-6

{ heart }   [IS] 24v1

Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty,
and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down,
and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof.

{ heart }   [IS] 24v2

And it shall be,
as with the people, so with the priest;
as with the servant, so with his master;
as with the maid, so with her mistress;
as with the buyer, so with the seller;
as with the lender, so with the borrower;
as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him.

{ heart }   [IS] 24v3

The land shall be utterly emptied,
and utterly spoiled;


For the LORD hath spoken this word.

{ heart }   [IS] 24v4

The earth mourneth and fadeth away,
the world languisheth and fadeth away,
the haughty people of the earth do languish.

{ heart }   [IS] 24v5

The earth also is defiled
under the inhabitants thereof;
because they have transgressed the laws,
changed the ordinance,
broken the everlasting covenant.

{ heart }   [IS] 24v6

Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth,
and they that dwell therein are desolate;
therefore, the inhabitants of the earth are burnt,
and few men left.

¶ Isaiah 24 v7-12

{ heart }   [IS] 24v7

The new wine mourneth, the vine languisheth,
all the merry-hearted do sigh.

{ heart }   [IS] 24v8

The mirth of timbrels ceaseth,
the noise of them that rejoice endeth,
the joy of the harp ceaseth.

{ heart }   [IS] 24v9

They shall not drink wine with a song;
strong drink shall be bitter to them that drink it.

{ heart }   [IS] 24v10

The city of confusion is broken down;
every house is shut up, that no man may come in.

{ heart }   [IS] 24v11

There is a crying for wine in the streets;
all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone.

{ heart }   [IS] 24v12

In the city is left desolation,
and the gate is smitten with destruction.

¶ Isaiah 24 v13-23

{ heart }   [IS] 24v13

When thus it shall be in the midst of the land
among the people,
there shall be as the shaking of an olive tree,
and as the gleaning of grapes
when the vintage is done.

{ heart }   [IS] 24v14

They shall lift up their voice,
they shall sing for the majesty of the LORD,
they shall cry aloud from the sea.

{ heart }   [IS] 24v15

Wherefore, glorify ye the LORD
in the fires,
even the NAME of the LORD GOD of Israel
in the isles of the sea.

{ heart }   [IS] 24v16

From the uttermost part of the earth
have we heard songs,
even glory to the RIGHTEOUS:
but I said,

 ‘My leanness, my leanness, woe unto me:
the treacherous dealers
have dealt treacherously;
yea, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously’.

{ heart }   [IS] 24v17

Fear, and the pit, and the snare,
are upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth.

{ heart }   [IS] 24v18

And it shall come to pass,
that he who fleeth from the noise of the fear
shall fall into the pit,
and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit
shall be taken in the snare;
for the windows from on high are open,
and the foundations of the earth do shake.

{ heart }   [IS] 24v19

The earth is utterly broken down,
the earth is clean dissolved,
the earth is moved exceedingly.

{ heart }   [IS] 24v20

The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard,
and shall be removed like a cottage;
and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it,
and it shall fall, and not rise again.

{ heart }   [IS] 24v21

And it shall come to pass
in that day,
that the LORD shall punish the host of the high ones
that are on high,
and the kings of the earth upon the earth.

{ heart }   [IS] 24v22

And they shall be gathered together,
as prisoners are gathered in the pit,
and shall be shut up in the prison,
and after many days shall they be visited.

{ heart }   [IS] 24v23

Then the moon shall be confounded,
and the sun ashamed,
when the LORD of hosts shall reign
in Mount Zion, and in Jerusalem,
and before HIS ancients gloriously.

¶ Isaiah 25 v1-5

{ heart }   [IS] 25v1

LORD, THOU art my GOD;
I will exalt THEE, I will praise THY NAME;
for THOU hast done wonderful things;
THY counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.

{ heart }   [IS] 25v2

For THOU hast made of a city an heap;
of a fortified city a ruin;
a palace of foreigners to be no city;
it shall never be built.

{ heart }   [IS] 25v3

Therefore shall the strong people glorify THEE,
the city of the terrible nations shall fear THEE.

{ heart }   [IS] 25v4

For THOU hast been a strength to the poor,
a strength to the needy in his distress,
a refuge from the storm,
a shadow from the heat,
when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm
against the wall.

{ heart }   [IS] 25v5

THOU shalt bring down the noise of aliens,
as the heat in a dry place;
even the heat with the shadow of a cloud;
the branch of the terrible ones shall be brought low.

¶ Isaiah 25 v6-8

{ heart }   [IS] 25v6

And in this mountain shall the LORD of hosts make
unto all people
a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees,
of fat things full of marrow,
of wines on the lees well refined.

{ heart }   [IS] 25v7

And HE will destroy in this mountain
the face of the covering cast over all people,
and the veil that is spread over all nations.

{ heart }   [IS] 25v8

and the LORD GOD will wipe away tears
from off all faces;
and the rebuke of HIS people shall HE take away from off all the earth;

for the LORD hath spoken it.

This is the LORD;
we have waited for HIM, we will be glad
and rejoice in HIS salvation’.

{ heart }   [IS] 25v10

For in this mountain shall the hand of the LORD rest,
and Moab shall be trodden down under HIM,
even as straw is trodden down for the dunghill.

{ heart }   [IS] 25v11

And HE shall spread forth HIS hands
in the midst of them,
as he that swimmeth spreadeth forth his hands
to swim;
and HE shall bring down their pride
together with the spoils of their hands.

And the fortress of the high fort of thy walls
shall HE bring down,
lay low, and bring to the ground, even to the dust.

In that day
shall this song be sung in the land of Judah:

 ‘We have a strong city;
salvation will GOD appoint for walls and bulwarks’.

{ heart }   [IS] 26v2

Open ye the gates,
that the righteous nation that keepeth the truth
may enter in.

Trust ye in the LORD forever;
for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:

the lofty city HE layeth it low;
HE layeth it low, even to the ground;
HE bringeth it even to the dust.

The foot shall tread it down,
even the feet of the poor, and the steps of the needy.

¶ Isaiah 26 v7-19

{ heart }   [IS] 26v7

The way of the just is uprightness;
THOU, MOST UPRIGHT, dost weigh
the path of the just.

{ heart }   [IS] 26v8

Yea, in the way of THY judgments, O LORD,
have we waited for THEE;
the desire of our soul is to THY NAME,
and to the remembrance of THEE.

{ heart }   [IS] 26v9

With my soul have I desired THEE in the night;
yea, with my spirit within me will I seek THEE early;
for when THY judgments are in the earth,
the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.

{ heart }   [IS] 26v10

Let favor be showed to the wicked,
yet will he not learn righteousness;
in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly,
and will not behold the majesty of the LORD.

{ heart }   [IS] 26v11

LORD, when THY hand is lifted up,
they will not see;
but they shall see, and be ashamed
for their envy at the people;
yea, the fire of THINE enemies shall devour them.

LORD, THOU wilt ordain peace for us;
for THOU also hast wrought all our works in us.

{ heart }   [IS] 26v13

LORD our GOD,
other lords beside THEE have had dominion over us;
but by THEE only will we make mention
of THY NAME.

{ heart }   [IS] 26v14

They are dead, they shall not live;
they are deceased, they shall not rise;
therefore hast THOU visited and destroyed them,
and made all their memory to perish.

{ heart }   [IS] 26v15

THOU hast increased the nation, O LORD,
THOU hast increased the nation, THOU art glorified;
THOU hadst removed it far
unto all the ends of the earth.

{ heart }   [IS] 26v16

LORD, in trouble have they visited THEE;
they poured out a prayer
when THY chastening was upon them.

{ heart }   [IS] 26v17

Like as a woman with child,
that draweth near the time of her delivery,
is in pain, and crieth out in her pangs;
so have we been in THY sight, O LORD.

we have not wrought any deliverance in the earth,
neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen.

{ heart }   [IS] 26v19

Thy dead men shall live,
together with my dead body shall they arise:
awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust;

to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity;
the earth also shall disclose her blood,
and shall no more cover her slain.

I, the LORD, do keep it;
I will water it every moment:
lest any hurt it, I will keep it night and day.

{ heart }   [IS] 27v4

Fury is not in ME:
who would set the briers and thorns
against ME in battle?
I would go through them,
I would burn them together.

{ heart }   [IS] 27v5

Or let him take hold of MY strength,
that he may make peace with ME;
and he shall make peace with ME.

{ heart }   [IS] 27v6

HE shall cause them that come of Jacob
to take root;
Israel shall blossom and bud,
and fill the face of the world with fruit.

¶ Isaiah 27 v7-11

{ heart }   [IS] 27v7

Hath HE smitten him,
as HE smote those that smote him?
or is he slain according to the slaughter
of them that are slain by HIM?

{ heart }   [IS] 27v8

In measure, when it shooteth forth,
thou wilt debate with it;
HE stayeth HIS rough wind
in the day of the east wind.

{ heart }   [IS] 27v9

By this, therefore, shall the iniquity of Jacob
be purged;
and this is all the fruit to take away his sin;
when HE maketh all the stones of the altar
as chalkstones that are beaten in sunder,
the groves and images shall not stand up.

{ heart }   [IS] 27v10

Yet the fortified city shall be desolate,
and the habitation forsaken, and left like a wilderness;
there shall the calf feed, and there shall he lie down,
and consume the branches thereof.

{ heart }   [IS] 27v11

When the boughs thereof are withered,
they shall be broken off;
the women come, and set them on fire;
for it is a people of no understanding:
therefore, HE THAT made them
will not have mercy on them,
and HE THAT formed them
will show them no favor.

¶ Isaiah 27 v12-13

{ heart }   [IS] 27v12

And it shall come to pass
in that day,
that the LORD shall beat off
from the channel of the river unto the stream of Egypt,
and ye shall be gathered one by one,
O ye children of Israel.

{ heart }   [IS] 27v13

And it shall come to pass
in that day,
that the great trumpet shall be blown,
and they shall come
which were ready to perish in the land of Assyria,
and the outcasts in the land of Egypt,
and shall worship the LORD in the holy mount
at Jerusalem.

» Isaiah 28

¶ Isaiah 28 v1-4

{ heart }   [IS] 28v1

Woe to the crown of pride,
to the drunkards of Ephraim,
whose glorious beauty is a fading flower,
which are on the head of the fat valleys
of them that are overcome with wine.

{ heart }   [IS] 28v2

Behold, the LORD hath a mighty and strong one,
which as a tempest of hail and a destroying storm,
as a flood of mighty waters overflowing,
shall cast down to the earth with the hand.

{ heart }   [IS] 28v3

The crown of pride,
the drunkards of Ephraim shall be trodden under feet;

{ heart }   [IS] 28v4

And the glorious beauty,
which is on the head of the fat valley,
shall be a fading flower,
and as the hasty fruit before the summer,
which, when he that looketh upon it seeth it,
while it is yet in his hand he eateth it up.

¶ Isaiah 28 v5-6

{ heart }   [IS] 28v5

In that day
shall the LORD of hosts be for a crown of glory,
and for a diadem of beauty,
unto the residue of HIS people,

{ heart }   [IS] 28v6

And for a spirit of judgment
to him that sitteth in judgment,
and for strength
to them that turn the battle to the gate.

¶ Isaiah 28 v7-13

{ heart }   [IS] 28v7

But they also have erred through wine,
and through strong drink are out of the way:
the priest and the prophet have erred
through strong drink;
they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way
through strong drink, they err in vision,
they stumble in judgment.

{ heart }   [IS] 28v8

For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness,
so that there is no place clean.

{ heart }   [IS] 28v9

Whom shall HE teach knowledge?
and whom shall HE make to understand doctrine?
them that are weaned from the milk,
and drawn from the breasts.

{ heart }   [IS] 28v10

For precept must be upon precept,
precept upon precept;
line upon line, line upon line;
here a little, and there a little:

{ heart }   [IS] 28v11

For with stammering lips and another tongue
will HE speak to this people.

{ heart }   [IS] 28v12

To whom HE said,

This is the rest
by which ye may cause the weary to rest;
and this is the refreshing;


Yet they would not hear.

{ heart }   [IS] 28v13

But the word of the LORD was unto them
precept upon precept, precept upon precept;
line upon line, line upon line;
here a little, and there a little;
that they might go, and fall backward,
and be broken, and snared, and taken.

¶ Isaiah 28 v14-22

{ heart }   [IS] 28v14

Wherefore, hear the word of the LORD,
ye scornful men, that rule this people
which is in Jerusalem.

{ heart }   [IS] 28v15

Because ye have said,

 ‘We have made a covenant with death,
and with hell are we at agreement,
when the overflowing scourge shall pass through,
it shall not come unto us;
for we have made lies our refuge,
and under falsehood have we hid ourselves’.

{ heart }   [IS] 28v16

Therefore thus saith the LORD GOD,

Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation
a STONE, a tried STONE,
a precious CORNERSTONE,
a sure FOUNDATION;
he that believeth shall not make haste.

{ heart }   [IS] 28v17

Judgment also will I lay to the line,
and righteousness to the plummet;
and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies,
and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.

{ heart }   [IS] 28v18

And your covenant with death shall be disannulled,
and your agreement with hell shall not stand;
when the overflowing scourge shall pass through,
then ye shall be trodden down by it.

{ heart }   [IS] 28v19

From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you;
for morning by morning shall it pass over,
by day and by night,
and it shall be a vexation only
to understand the report.

{ heart }   [IS] 28v20

For the bed is shorter
than that a man can stretch himself on it;
and the covering narrower
than that he can wrap himself in it.

{ heart }   [IS] 28v21

For the LORD shall rise up as in Mount Perazim,
HE shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon,
that HE may do HIS work, HIS strange work;
and bring to pass HIS act, HIS strange act.

{ heart }   [IS] 28v22

Now, therefore, be ye not mockers,
lest your bands be made strong;
for I have heard from the LORD GOD of hosts
a consumption,
even determined upon the whole earth.

¶ Isaiah 28 v23-29

{ heart }   [IS] 28v23

Give ye ear, and hear my voice;
hearken, and hear my speech.

{ heart }   [IS] 28v24

Doth the plowman plow all day to sow?
doth he open and break the clods of his ground?

{ heart }   [IS] 28v25

When he hath made plain the face thereof,
doth he not cast abroad the fitches,
and scatter the cummin,
and cast in the principal wheat
and the appointed barley and the rye
in their place?

{ heart }   [IS] 28v26

For his GOD doth instruct him to discretion,
and doth teach him.

{ heart }   [IS] 28v27

For the fitches are not threshed
with a threshing instrument,
neither is a cart wheel turned about
upon the cummin;
but the fitches are beaten out with a staff,
and the cummin with a rod.

{ heart }   [IS] 28v28

Bread corn is bruised;
because he will not ever be threshing it,
nor break it with the wheel of his cart,
nor bruise it with his horsemen.

{ heart }   [IS] 28v29

This also cometh forth rom the LORD of hosts,
WHICH is wonderful in counsel,
and excellent in working.

» Isaiah 29

¶ Isaiah 29 v1-8

{ heart }   [IS] 29v1

Woe to Ariel,
to Ariel, the city where David dwelt:
add ye year to year;
let them kill sacrifices.

Yet I will distress Ariel,
and there shall be heaviness and sorrow;
and it shall be unto ME as Ariel.

{ heart }   [IS] 29v3

And I will camp against thee round about,
and will lay siege against thee with a mount,
and I will raise forts against thee.

{ heart }   [IS] 29v4

And thou shalt be brought down,
and shalt speak out of the ground,
and thy speech shall be low out of the dust,
and thy voice shall be,
as of one that hath a familiar spirit,
out of the ground,
and thy speech shall whisper
out of the dust.

{ heart }   [IS] 29v5

Moreover, the multitude of thy strangers
shall be like small dust,
and the multitude of the terrible ones
shall be as chaff that passeth away;
yea, it shall be at an instant suddenly.

{ heart }   [IS] 29v6

Thou shalt be visited of the LORD of hosts
with thunder, and with earthquake,
and great noise,
with storm and tempest,
and the flame of devouring fire.

{ heart }   [IS] 29v7

And the multitude of all the nations
that fight against Ariel,
even all that fight against her and her stronghold,
and that distress her,
shall be as a dream of a night vision.

{ heart }   [IS] 29v8

It shall even be as when an hungry man dreameth,
and, behold, he eateth;
but he awaketh, and his soul is empty;
or as when a thirsty man dreameth,
and, behold, he drinketh;
but he awaketh, and, behold, he is faint,
and his soul hath appetite:
so shall the multitude of all the nations be,
that fight against Mount Zion.

¶ Isaiah 29 v9-12

{ heart }   [IS] 29v9

Stay yourselves, and wonder;
cry ye out, and cry;

 ‘They are drunken, but not with wine;
they stagger, but not with strong drink’.

{ heart }   [IS] 29v10

For the LORD hath poured out upon you
the spirit of deep sleep,
and hath closed your eyes;
the prophets and your rulers,
the seers hath HE covered.

{ heart }   [IS] 29v11

And the vision of all is become unto you
as the words of a book that is sealed,
which men deliver to one that is learned,
saying,

 ‘Read this, I pray thee’; 

And he saith,

 ‘I cannot; for it is sealed’:

{ heart }   [IS] 29v12

And the book is delivered to him that is not learned,
saying,

 ‘Read this, I pray thee’; 

And he saith,

 ‘I am not learned’.

¶ Isaiah 29 v13-14

{ heart }   [IS] 29v13

Wherefore the LORD said,

Forasmuch as this people draw near ME
with their mouth, and with their lips do honor ME,
but have removed their heart far from ME,
and their fear toward ME
is taught by the precept of men;

{ heart }   [IS] 29v14

Therefore, behold, I will proceed
to do a marvelous work among this people,
even a marvelous work and a wonder;
for the wisdom of their wise men
shall perish,
and the understanding of their prudent men
shall be hidden.

¶ Isaiah 29 v15

{ heart }   [IS] 29v15

that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD,
and their works are in the dark,
and they say,

 ‘Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?’ 

¶ Isaiah 29 v16-24

{ heart }   [IS] 29v16

Surely, your turning of things upside down
shall be esteemed as the potter's clay;
for shall the work say of him that made it,

 ‘He made me not?’ 

Or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it,

 ‘He had no understanding?’ 

{ heart }   [IS] 29v17

Is it not yet a very little while,
and Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field,
and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest?

{ heart }   [IS] 29v18

And in that day
shall the deaf hear the words of the book,
and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity,
and out of darkness.

{ heart }   [IS] 29v19

The meek also shall increase their joy
in the LORD,
and the poor among men shall rejoice
in the HOLY ONE of Israel.

{ heart }   [IS] 29v20

For the terrible one is brought to nought,
and the scorner is consumed,
and all that watch for iniquity are cut off,

{ heart }   [IS] 29v21

That make a man an offender for a word,
and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate,
and turn aside the just for a thing of nought.

{ heart }   [IS] 29v22

Therefore, thus saith the LORD,
WHO redeemed Abraham,
concerning the house of Jacob:
Jacob shall not now be ashamed,
neither shall his face now wax pale.

{ heart }   [IS] 29v23

But when he seeth his children,
the work of MINE hands,
in the midst of him,
they shall sanctify MY NAME,
and sanctify the HOLY ONE of Jacob,
and shall fear the GOD of Israel.

{ heart }   [IS] 29v24

They also that erred in spirit
shall come to understanding,
and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.

» Isaiah 30

¶ Isaiah 30 v1-7

{ heart }   [IS] 30v1

Woe to the rebellious children,

Saith the LORD,

Who take counsel, but not of ME;
and that cover with a covering,
but not of MY SPIRIT,
that they may add sin to sin;

{ heart }   [IS] 30v2

That walk to go down into Egypt,
and have not asked at MY mouth;
to strengthen themselves
in the strength of Pharaoh,
and to trust in the shadow of Egypt.

{ heart }   [IS] 30v3

Therefore shall the strength of Pharaoh
be your shame,
and the trust in the shadow of Egypt
your confusion.

{ heart }   [IS] 30v4

For his princes were at Zoan,
and his ambassadors came to Hanes.

{ heart }   [IS] 30v5

They were all ashamed of a people
that could not profit them,
nor be an help nor profit,
but a shame, and also a reproach.

{ heart }   [IS] 30v6

The burden of the beasts of the south.

Into the land of trouble and anguish,
from whence come the young and old lion,
the viper and fiery flying serpent,
they will carry their riches
upon the shoulders of young asses,
and their treasures upon the bunches of camels,
to a people that shall not profit them.

{ heart }   [IS] 30v7

For the Egyptians shall help in vain,
and to no purpose;


Therefore have I cried concerning this,

 ‘Their strength is to sit still’.

¶ Isaiah 30 v8-17

{ heart }   [IS] 30v8

Now go, write it before them in a table,
and note it in a book,
that it may be for the time to come forever and ever,

{ heart }   [IS] 30v9

That this is a rebellious people, lying children,
children that will not hear the law of the LORD:

{ heart }   [IS] 30v10

Which say to the seers,

 ‘See not’; 

And to the prophets,

 ‘Prophesy not unto us right things;
speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits’;

{ heart }   [IS] 30v11

Get you out of the way,
turn aside out of the path,
cause the HOLY ONE of Israel
to cease from before us.

{ heart }   [IS] 30v12

Wherefore, thus saith the HOLY ONE of Israel,

Because ye despise this word,
and trust in oppression and perverseness,
and stay thereon;

{ heart }   [IS] 30v13

Therefore, this iniquity shall be to you
as a breach ready to fall,
swelling out in a high wall,
whose breaking cometh suddenly, at an instant.

{ heart }   [IS] 30v14

And HE shall break it
as the breaking of the potters' vessel
that is broken in pieces;
HE shall not spare,
so that there shall not be found
in the bursting of it
a sherd to take fire from the hearth,
or to take water withal out of the pit.

{ heart }   [IS] 30v15

For thus saith the LORD GOD,
the HOLY ONE of Israel:


In returning and rest shall ye be saved;
in quietness and in confidence
shall be your strength:
and ye would not.

{ heart }   [IS] 30v16

But ye said,

 ‘No; for we will flee upon horses’. 

Therefore shall ye flee.

 ‘And, we will ride upon the swift’. 

Therefore shall they that pursue you be swift.

{ heart }   [IS] 30v17

One thousand shall flee at the rebuke of one;
at the rebuke of five shall ye flee,
till ye be left as a beacon
upon the top of a mountain,
and as an banner on an hill.

¶ Isaiah 30 v18-26

{ heart }   [IS] 30v18

And therefore will the LORD wait,
that HE may be gracious unto you,
and therefore will HE be exalted,
that HE may have mercy upon you;
for the LORD is a GOD of judgment;
blessed are all they that wait for HIM.

{ heart }   [IS] 30v19

For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem.
thou shalt weep no more;
HE will be very gracious unto thee
at the voice of thy cry;
when HE shall hear it, HE will answer thee.

{ heart }   [IS] 30v20

And though the LORD give you
the bread of adversity, and the water of affliction,
yet shall not thy teachers be removed
into a corner any more,
but thine eyes shall see thy teachers.

{ heart }   [IS] 30v21

And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee,
saying,

 ‘This is the way, walk ye in it,
when ye turn to the right hand,
and when ye turn to the left’.

{ heart }   [IS] 30v22

Ye shall defile also
the covering of thy graven images of silver,
and the ornament of thy molten images of gold;
thou shalt cast them away as an unclean cloth;
thou shalt say unto it,

 ‘Get thee hence’.

{ heart }   [IS] 30v23

Then shall HE give the rain of thy seed,
that thou shalt sow the ground withal,
and bread of the increase of the earth,
and it shall be fat and plenteous;
in that day shall thy cattle feed in large pastures.

{ heart }   [IS] 30v24

The oxen likewise,
and the young asses that ear the ground,
shall eat clean provender which hath been winnowed
with the shovel and with the fan.

{ heart }   [IS] 30v25

And there shall be upon every high mountain,
and upon every high hill,
rivers and streams of waters
in the day of the great slaughter
when the towers fall.

{ heart }   [IS] 30v26

Moreover,
the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun,
and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold,
as the light of seven days,
in the day that the LORD bindeth up
the breach of HIS people,
and healeth the stroke of their wound.

¶ Isaiah 30 v27-33

{ heart }   [IS] 30v27

Behold, the NAME of the LORD cometh from far,
burning with HIS anger,
and the burden thereof is heavy;
HIS lips are full of indignation,
and HIS tongue as a devouring fire.

{ heart }   [IS] 30v28

And HIS breath, as an overflowing stream,
shall reach to the midst of the neck,
to sift the nations with the sieve of vanity;
and there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people,
causing them to err.

{ heart }   [IS] 30v29

Ye shall have a song,
as in the night when a holy solemnity is kept;
and gladness of heart,
as when one goeth with a pipe
to come into the mountain of the LORD,
to the MIGHTY ONE of Israel.

{ heart }   [IS] 30v30

And the LORD shall cause HIS glorious voice
to be heard,
and shall show the lighting down of HIS arm,
with the indignation of HIS anger,
and with the flame of a devouring fire,
with scattering, and tempest, and hailstones.

{ heart }   [IS] 30v31

For through the voice of the LORD
shall the Assyrian be beaten down,
which smote with a rod.

{ heart }   [IS] 30v32

And in every place
where the grounded staff shall pass,
which the LORD shall lay upon him,
it shall be with timbrels and harps;
and in battles of shaking will HE fight with it.

{ heart }   [IS] 30v33

For Topheth is ordained of old;
yea, for the king it is prepared;
HE hath made it deep and large;
the pile thereof is fire and much wood;
the breath of the LORD, like a stream of brimstone,
doth kindle it.

» Isaiah 31

¶ Isaiah 31 v1-3

{ heart }   [IS] 31v1

Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help,
and stay on horses,
and trust in chariots, because they are many;
and in horsemen, because they are very strong;
but they look not unto the HOLY ONE of Israel,
neither seek the LORD.

{ heart }   [IS] 31v2

Yet HE also is wise, and will bring evil,
and will not call back HIS words;
but will arise against the house of the evildoers,
and against the help of them that work iniquity.

{ heart }   [IS] 31v3

Now the Egyptians are men, and not GOD;
and their horses flesh, and not spirit:
when the LORD shall stretch out HIS hand,
both he that helpeth shall fall,
and he that is helped shall fall down,
and they all shall fail together.

¶ Isaiah 31 v4-9

{ heart }   [IS] 31v4

For thus hath the LORD spoken unto me,

As the lion and the young lion roaring on his prey,
when a multitude of shepherds is called forth against him,
he will not be afraid of their voice,
nor abase himself for the noise of them,
so shall the LORD of hosts come down to fight
for Mount Zion, and for the hill thereof.

{ heart }   [IS] 31v5

As birds flying,
so will the LORD of hosts defend Jerusalem;
defending also HE will deliver it;
and passing over HE will preserve it.

{ heart }   [IS] 31v6

Turn ye unto HIM
from WHOM the children of Israel
have deeply revolted.

{ heart }   [IS] 31v7

For in that day
every man shall cast away his idols of silver,
and his idols of gold,
which your own hands have made unto you
for a sin.

{ heart }   [IS] 31v8

Then shall the Assyrian fall with the sword,
not of a mighty man;
and the sword, not of a mean man,
shall devour him;
but he shall flee from the sword,
and his young men shall be discomfited.

{ heart }   [IS] 31v9

And he shall pass over to his stronghold for fear,
and his princes shall be afraid of the ensign,


Saith the LORD,
WHOSE fire is in Zion,
and HIS furnace in Jerusalem.

Behold, a KING shall reign in righteousness,
and princes shall rule in judgment.

And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind,
and a covert from the tempest;
as rivers of water in a dry place,
as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land.

{ heart }   [IS] 32v3

And the eyes of them that see
shall not be dim,
and the ears of them that hear
shall hearken.

{ heart }   [IS] 32v4

The heart also of the rash
shall understand knowledge,
and the tongue of the stammerers
shall be ready to speak plainly.

{ heart }   [IS] 32v5

The vile person shall be no more called

 ‘Liberal’, 

Nor the churl said to be

 ‘Bountiful’.

{ heart }   [IS] 32v6

For the vile person will speak villainy,
and his heart will work iniquity,
to practice hypocrisy,
and to utter error against the LORD,
to make empty the soul of the hungry,
and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.

{ heart }   [IS] 32v7

The instruments also of the churl are evil;
he deviseth wicked devices to destroy the poor
with lying words,
even when the needy speaketh right.

{ heart }   [IS] 32v8

But the liberal deviseth liberal things;
and by liberal things shall he stand.

¶ Isaiah 32 v9-20

{ heart }   [IS] 32v9

Rise up, ye women that are at ease;
hear my voice, ye careless daughters;
give ear unto my speech.

Many days and years shall ye be troubled,
ye careless women;
for the vintage shall fail,
the gathering shall not come.

{ heart }   [IS] 32v11

Tremble, ye women that are at ease;
be troubled, ye careless ones;
strip you, and make you bare,
and gird sackcloth upon your loins.

{ heart }   [IS] 32v12

They shall lament for the teats,
for the pleasant fields, for the fruitful vine.

{ heart }   [IS] 32v13

Upon the land of my people
shall come up thorns and briers;
yea, upon all the houses of joy in the joyous city,

{ heart }   [IS] 32v14

Because the palaces shall be forsaken,
the multitude of the city shall be left,
the forts and towers shall be for dens forever,
a joy of wild asses, a pasture of flocks,

{ heart }   [IS] 32v15

Until the SPIRIT be poured upon us from on high,
and the wilderness be a fruitful field,
and the fruitful field be counted for a forest.

{ heart }   [IS] 32v16

Then judgment shall dwell in the wilderness,
and righteousness remain in the fruitful field.

And the work of righteousness shall be peace;
and the effect of righteousness,
quietness and assurance forever.

And my people shall dwell
in a peaceable habitation,
and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places,

When it shall hail, coming down on the forest;
and the city shall be low in a low place.

Blessed are ye that sow beside all waters,
that send forth thither
the feet of the ox and the ass.

to deal treacherously,
they shall deal treacherously with thee.

be THOU their arm every morning,
our salvation also in the time of trouble.

¶ Isaiah 33 v3-6

{ heart }   [IS] 33v3

At the noise of the tumult the people fled;
at the lifting up of THYSELF
the nations were scattered.

{ heart }   [IS] 33v4

And your spoil shall be gathered
like the gathering of the caterpillar:
as the running to and fro of locusts
shall HE run upon them.

{ heart }   [IS] 33v5

The LORD is exalted: for HE dwelleth on high,
HE hath filled Zion with judgment and righteousness.

And wisdom and knowledge
shall be the stability of thy times,
and strength of salvation;
the fear of the LORD is HIS treasure.

Behold, their valiant ones shall cry outside;

The highways lie waste, the wayfaring man ceaseth;
he hath broken the covenant,
he hath despised the cities, he regardeth no man.

The earth mourneth and languisheth:
Lebanon is ashamed and hewn down;
Sharon is like a wilderness;
and Bashan and Carmel shake off their fruits.

{ heart }   [IS] 33v10

Now will I rise,

Saith the LORD:

Now will I be exalted, now will I lift up MYSELF.

Ye shall conceive chaff,
ye shall bring forth stubble;
your breath, as fire, shall devour you.

And the people shall be as the burnings of lime;
as thorns cut up shall they be burnt in the fire.

Hear, ye that are far off,

 ‘What I have done’; 

And, ye that are near, acknowledge

 ‘MY might’.

¶ Isaiah 33 v14-16

{ heart }   [IS] 33v14

The sinners in Zion are afraid;
fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites:
who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire?
who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?

{ heart }   [IS] 33v15

He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly;
he that despiseth the gain of oppressions,
that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes,
that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood,
and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil;

{ heart }   [IS] 33v16

He shall dwell on high;
his place of defense shall be the munitions of rocks,
bread shall be given him;

Thine heart shall meditate terror;
Where is the scribe? where is the receiver?
where is he that counted the towers?

{ heart }   [IS] 33v19

Thou shalt not see a fierce people,
a people of a deeper speech
than thou canst perceive;
of a stammering tongue,
that thou canst not understand.

Look upon Zion, the city of our solemnities;
thine eyes shall see Jerusalem a quiet habitation,
a tabernacle that shall not be taken down;

But there the glorious LORD
will be unto us a place of broad rivers and streams,

And the unicorns shall come down with them,
and the bullocks with the bulls;

¶ Isaiah 36 v1-10

{ heart }   [IS] 36v1

Now it came to pass
in the fourteenth year of king Hezekiah,
that Sennacherib, king of Assyria,
came up against all the fortified cities of Judah,
and took them.

{ heart }   [IS] 36v2

And the king of Assyria sent the Rabshakeh
from Lachish to Jerusalem unto king Hezekiah
with a great army:
and he stood by the conduit of the upper pool
in the highway of the fuller's field.

{ heart }   [IS] 36v3

Then came forth unto him
Eliakim, Hilkiah's son, which was over the house,
and Shebna, the scribe,
and Joah, Asaph's son, the recorder.

{ heart }   [IS] 36v4

And the Rabshakeh said unto them,

Say ye now to Hezekiah,

 ‘Thus saith the great king, the king of Assyria.
What confidence is this wherein thou trustest’?

{ heart }   [IS] 36v5

I say,

 ‘(Sayest thou)
(but they are but vain words)

I have counsel and strength for war;

Now on whom dost thou trust,
that thou rebellest against me’?

{ heart }   [IS] 36v6

Lo, thou trustest in the staff of this broken reed,
on Egypt whereon, if a man lean,
it will go into his hand, and pierce it;
so is Pharaoh, king of Egypt, to all that trust in him.

{ heart }   [IS] 36v7

But if thou say to me,

 ‘We trust in the LORD our GOD’: 

Is it not HE,
WHOSE high places and WHOSE altars
Hezekiah hath taken away,
and said to Judah and to Jerusalem,

 ‘Ye shall worship before this altar’?

{ heart }   [IS] 36v8

Now, therefore, give pledges, I pray thee,
to my master, the king of Assyria,
and I will give thee two thousand horses,
if thou be able on thy part to set riders upon them.

{ heart }   [IS] 36v9

How, then, wilt thou turn away the face
of one captain of the least of my master's servants,
and put thy trust on Egypt
for chariots and for horsemen?

{ heart }   [IS] 36v10

And am I now come up without the LORD
against this land to destroy it?
the LORD said unto me,

 ‘Go up against this land, and destroy it’.

¶ Isaiah 36 v11-21

{ heart }   [IS] 36v11

Then said Eliakim and Shebna and Joah
unto the Rabshakeh,

Speak, I pray thee, unto thy servants
in the Syrian language; for we understand it:
and speak not to us in the Jews' language,
in the ears of the people that are on the wall.

{ heart }   [IS] 36v12

But the Rabshakeh said,

Hath my master sent me to thy master and to thee
to speak these words?
Hath he not sent me to the men that sit upon the wall,
that they may eat their own dung,
and drink their own piss with you?

{ heart }   [IS] 36v13

Then the Rabshakeh stood,
and cried with a loud voice in the Jews' language,
and said,

Hear ye the words of the great king,
the king of Assyria.

{ heart }   [IS] 36v14

Thus saith the king,

 ‘Let not Hezekiah deceive you;
for he shall not be able to deliver you’.

{ heart }   [IS] 36v15

Neither let Hezekiah make you trust in the LORD,
saying,

 ‘The LORD will surely deliver us:
this city shall not be delivered into the hand
of the king of Assyria’.

{ heart }   [IS] 36v16

Hearken not to Hezekiah;
for thus saith the king of Assyria,

 ‘Make an agreement with me by a present,
and come out to me;
and eat ye every one of his vine,
and every one of his fig tree,
and drink ye every one the waters of his own cistern’,

{ heart }   [IS] 36v17

Until I come and take you away
to a land like your own land,
a land of corn and wine,
a land of bread and vineyards.

{ heart }   [IS] 36v18

Beware lest Hezekiah persuade you,
saying,

 ‘The LORD will deliver us’. 

Hath any of the gods of the nations delivered his land
out of the hand of the king of Assyria?

{ heart }   [IS] 36v19

Where are the gods of Hamath and Arpad?
where are the gods of Sepharvaim?
and have they delivered Samaria out of my hand?

{ heart }   [IS] 36v20

Who are they among all the gods of these lands,
that have delivered their land out of my hand,
that the LORD should deliver Jerusalem
out of my hand?

{ heart }   [IS] 36v21

But they held their peace,
and answered him not a word;
for the king's commandment was,
saying,

Answer him not.

¶ Isaiah 36 v22

{ heart }   [IS] 36v22

Then came Eliakim, the son of Hilkiah,
that was over the household,
and Shebna, the scribe,
and Joah, the son of Asaph, the recorder,
to Hezekiah with their clothes rent,
and told him the words of the Rabshakeh.

» Isaiah 37

¶ Isaiah 37 v1-7

{ heart }   [IS] 37v1

And it came to pass,
when king Hezekiah heard it,
that he rent his clothes,
and covered himself with sackcloth,
and went into the house of the LORD.

{ heart }   [IS] 37v2

And he sent Eliakim, who was over the household,
and Shebna, the scribe,
and the elders of the priests covered with sackcloth,
unto Isaiah, the prophet, the son of Amoz.

{ heart }   [IS] 37v3

And they said unto him,

Thus saith Hezekiah,

 ‘This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke,
and of blasphemy;
for the children are come to the birth,
and there is not strength to bring forth’.

{ heart }   [IS] 37v4

It may be the LORD, thy GOD,
will hear the words of the Rabshakeh,
whom the king of Assyria, his master,
hath sent to reproach the living GOD,
and will reprove the words
which the LORD, thy GOD, hath heard;
wherefore lift up thy prayer for the remnant that is left.

{ heart }   [IS] 37v5

So the servants of king Hezekiah
came to Isaiah.

{ heart }   [IS] 37v6

And Isaiah said unto them,

Thus shall ye say unto your master,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD,


Be not afraid of the words that thou hast heard,
wherewith the servants of the king of Assyria
have blasphemed ME’.

{ heart }   [IS] 37v7

Behold, I will send a blast upon him,
and he shall hear a rumor,
and return to his own land;
and I will cause him to fall by the sword
in his own land.

¶ Isaiah 37 v8

{ heart }   [IS] 37v8

So the Rabshakeh returned,
and found the king of Assyria warring against Libnah;
for he had heard

That he was departed from Lachish.

¶ Isaiah 37 v9-13

{ heart }   [IS] 37v9

And he heard say concerning Tirhakah,
king of Ethiopia,

He is come forth to make war with thee.

And when he heard it,
he sent messengers to Hezekiah,
saying,

{ heart }   [IS] 37v10

Thus shall ye speak to Hezekiah, king of Judah,
saying,

 ‘Let not thy GOD, in WHOM thou trustest,
deceive thee,
saying,


Jerusalem shall not be given into the hand
of the king of Assyria’.

{ heart }   [IS] 37v11

Behold, thou hast heard what the kings of Assyria
have done to all lands by destroying them utterly;
and shalt thou be delivered?

{ heart }   [IS] 37v12

Have the gods of the nations delivered them
that my fathers have destroyed,
as Gozan, and Haran, and Rezeph,
and the children of Eden which were in Telasar?

{ heart }   [IS] 37v13

Where is the king of Hamath, and the king of Arpad,
and the king of the city of Sepharvaim,
Hena, and Ivvah?

¶ Isaiah 37 v14-20

{ heart }   [IS] 37v14

And Hezekiah received the letter
from the hand of the messengers, and read it;
and Hezekiah went up unto the house of the LORD,
and spread it before the LORD.

{ heart }   [IS] 37v15

And Hezekiah prayed unto the LORD,
saying,

{ heart }   [IS] 37v16

LORD of hosts, GOD of Israel,
THAT dwellest between the Cherubim,
THOU art the GOD,
even THOU alone,
of all the kingdoms of the earth;
THOU hast made heaven and earth.

{ heart }   [IS] 37v17

Incline THINE ear, O LORD, and hear;
open THINE eyes, O LORD, and see;
and hear all the words of Sennacherib,
which hath sent to reproach the living GOD.

{ heart }   [IS] 37v18

Of a truth, LORD,
the kings of Assyria have laid waste all the nations,
and their countries,

{ heart }   [IS] 37v19

And have cast their gods into the fire;
for they were no gods,
but the work of men's hands, wood and stone;
therefore, they have destroyed them.

{ heart }   [IS] 37v20

Now therefore, O LORD, our GOD,
save us from his hand,
that all the kingdoms of the earth may know

 ‘That THOU art the LORD, even THOU only’.

¶ Isaiah 37 v21-29

{ heart }   [IS] 37v21

Then Isaiah, the son of Amoz,
sent unto Hezekiah,
saying,

Thus saith the LORD GOD of Israel,

Whereas thou hast prayed to ME
against Sennacherib, king of Assyria,

{ heart }   [IS] 37v22

This is the word which the LORD hath spoken
concerning him:

 ‘The virgin, the daughter of Zion,
hath despised thee, and laughed thee to scorn;
the daughter of Jerusalem hath shaken her head at thee’.

{ heart }   [IS] 37v23

WHOM hast thou reproached and blasphemed?
and against WHOM hast thou exalted thy voice,
and lifted up thine eyes on high?
even against the HOLY ONE of Israel.

{ heart }   [IS] 37v24

By thy servants
hast thou reproached the LORD,
and hast said,

 ‘By the multitude of my chariots
am I come up to the height of the mountains,
to the sides of Lebanon;
and I will cut down the tall cedars thereof,
and the choice fir trees thereof;
and I will enter into the height of his border,
and the forest of his Carmel’.

{ heart }   [IS] 37v25

I have digged, and drunk water;
and with the sole of my feet
have I dried up all the rivers
of the besieged places.

{ heart }   [IS] 37v26

Hast thou not heard long ago,

 ‘How I have done it’; 

And of ancient times,

 ‘That I have formed it’? 

Now have I brought it to pass,
that thou shouldest be
to lay waste defenced cities into ruinous heaps.

{ heart }   [IS] 37v27

Therefore, their inhabitants were of small power;
they were dismayed and confounded;
they were as the grass of the field,
and as the green herb,
as the grass on the housetops,
and as corn blasted before it be grown up.

{ heart }   [IS] 37v28

But I know

 ‘Thy abode,
and thy going out, and thy coming in,
and thy rage against ME’.

{ heart }   [IS] 37v29

Because thy rage against ME, and thy tumult,
is come up into MINE ears,
therefore will I put MY hook in thy nose,
and MY bridle in thy lips,
and I will turn thee back
by the way by which thou camest.

¶ Isaiah 37 v30-32

{ heart }   [IS] 37v30

And this shall be a sign unto thee,
ye shall eat this year such as groweth of itself;
and the second year
that which springeth of the same;
and in the third year sow ye, and reap,
and plant vineyards, and eat the fruit thereof.

{ heart }   [IS] 37v31

And the remnant that is escaped
of the house of Judah
shall again take root downward,
and bear fruit upward;

{ heart }   [IS] 37v32

For out of Jerusalem shall go forth a remnant,
and they that escape out of Mount Zion;
the zeal of the LORD of hosts shall do this.

¶ Isaiah 37 v33-35

{ heart }   [IS] 37v33

Therefore, thus saith the LORD
concerning the king of Assyria,

 ‘He shall not come into this city,
nor shoot an arrow there,
nor come before it with shields,
nor cast a bank against it’.

{ heart }   [IS] 37v34

By the way that he came,
by the same shall he return,
and shall not come into this city,


Saith the LORD.

{ heart }   [IS] 37v35

For I will defend this city
to save it for MINE OWN sake,
and for MY servant David's sake.

¶ Isaiah 37 v36-38

{ heart }   [IS] 37v36

Then the Angel of the LORD went forth,
and smote in the camp of the Assyrians
a hundred and fourscore and five thousand;
and when they arose early in the morning,
behold, they were all dead corpses.

{ heart }   [IS] 37v37

So Sennacherib, king of Assyria
departed, and went and returned,
and dwelt at Nineveh.

{ heart }   [IS] 37v38

And it came to pass,
as he was worshipping in the house of Nisroch,
his god,
that Adrammelech and Sharezer, his sons,
smote him with the sword;
and they escaped into the land of Armenia;
and Esar-haddon, his son, reigned in his stead.

» Isaiah 38

¶ Isaiah 38 v1-8

{ heart }   [IS] 38v1

In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death:
and Isaiah, the prophet, the son of Amoz,
came unto him, and said unto him,

Thus saith the LORD,

Set thine house in order;
for thou shalt die, and not live.

{ heart }   [IS] 38v2

Then Hezekiah turned his face toward the wall,
and prayed unto the LORD,

{ heart }   [IS] 38v3

And said,

Remember now, O LORD, I beseech THEE,
how I have walked before THEE in truth
and with a perfect heart,
and have done that which is good in THY sight.


And Hezekiah wept sore.

{ heart }   [IS] 38v4

Then came the word of the LORD to Isaiah,
saying,

{ heart }   [IS] 38v5

Go, and say to Hezekiah,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD,
the GOD of David, thy father,
I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears;
behold, I will add unto thy days fifteen years.

{ heart }   [IS] 38v6

And I will deliver thee and this city
out of the hand of the king of Assyria;
and I will defend this city.

{ heart }   [IS] 38v7

And this shall be a sign unto thee from the LORD,
that the LORD will do this thing
that HE hath spoken:

{ heart }   [IS] 38v8

Behold,
I will bring again the shadow of the degrees,
which is gone down in the sun dial of Ahaz,
ten degrees backward:


So the sun returned ten degrees,
by which degrees it was gone down.

¶ Isaiah 38 v9-20

{ heart }   [IS] 38v9

The writing of Hezekiah, king of Judah,
when he had been sick, and was recovered of his sickness:

{ heart }   [IS] 38v10

I said in the cutting off of my days,

 ‘I shall go to the gates of the grave;
I am deprived of the residue of my years’.

{ heart }   [IS] 38v11

I said,

 ‘I shall not see the LORD, even the LORD,
in the land of the living;
I shall behold man no more
with the inhabitants of the world’.

{ heart }   [IS] 38v12

Mine age is departed, and is removed from me
as a shepherd's tent;
I have cut off like a weaver my life.
HE will cut me off with pining sickness;
from day even to night
wilt THOU make an end of me.

{ heart }   [IS] 38v13

I reckoned till morning
that, as a lion, so will HE break all my bones;
from day even to night
wilt THOU make an end of me.

{ heart }   [IS] 38v14

Like a crane or a swallow, so did I chatter;
I did mourn as a dove:
mine eyes fail with looking upward;
O LORD, I am oppressed, undertake for me.

{ heart }   [IS] 38v15

What shall I say?
HE hath both spoken unto me,
and HIMSELF hath done it;
I shall go softly all my years
in the bitterness of my soul.

{ heart }   [IS] 38v16

LORD, by these things men live,
and in all these things is the life of my spirit;
so wilt THOU recover me, and make me to live.

{ heart }   [IS] 38v17

Behold, for peace I had great bitterness,
but THOU hast in love to my soul
delivered it from the pit of corruption;
for THOU hast cast all my sins behind THY back.

{ heart }   [IS] 38v18

For the grave cannot praise THEE,
death can not celebrate THEE;
they that go down into the pit
cannot hope for THY truth.

{ heart }   [IS] 38v19

The living, the living, he shall praise THEE,
as I do this day;
the father to the children shall make known

 ‘THY truth’.

{ heart }   [IS] 38v20

The LORD was ready to save me;
therefore,
we will sing my songs to the stringed instruments
all the days of our life
in the house of the LORD.

¶ Isaiah 38 v21-22

{ heart }   [IS] 38v21

For Isaiah had said,

Let them take a lump of figs,
and lay it for a plaster upon the boil,
and he shall recover.

{ heart }   [IS] 38v22

Hezekiah also had said,

What is the sign
that I shall go up to the house of the LORD?

» Isaiah 39

¶ Isaiah 39 v1-8

{ heart }   [IS] 39v1

At that time Merodach-baladan,
the son of Baladan, king of Babylon,
sent letters and a present to Hezekiah:
for he had heard

That he had been sick, and was recovered.

{ heart }   [IS] 39v2

And Hezekiah was glad of them,
and shewed them the house of his precious things,
the silver, and the gold,
and the spices, and the precious ointment,
and all the house of his armour,
and all that was found in his treasures:
there was nothing in his house, nor in all his dominion,
that Hezekiah shewed them not.

{ heart }   [IS] 39v3

Then came Isaiah the prophet unto king Hezekiah,
and said unto him,

What said these men?
and from whence came they unto thee?


And Hezekiah said,

They are come from a far country unto me,
even from Babylon.

{ heart }   [IS] 39v4

Then said he,

What have they seen in thine house?

And Hezekiah answered,

All that is in mine house have they seen:
there is nothing among my treasures
that I have not shewed them.

{ heart }   [IS] 39v5

Then said Isaiah to Hezekiah,

Hear the word of the LORD of hosts:

{ heart }   [IS] 39v6

Behold, the days come,
that all that is in thine house,
and that which thy fathers have laid up in store
until this day,
shall be carried to Babylon:
nothing shall be left,


Saith the LORD.

{ heart }   [IS] 39v7

And of thy sons that shall issue from thee,
which thou shalt beget,
shall they take away;
and they shall be eunuchs
in the palace of the king of Babylon.

{ heart }   [IS] 39v8

Then said Hezekiah to Isaiah,

Good is the word of the LORD
which thou hast spoken.


He said moreover,

For there shall be peace and truth
in my days.

» Isaiah 40

¶ Isaiah 40 v1-11

{ heart }   [IS] 40v1

Comfort ye, comfort ye MY people,

Saith your GOD.

{ heart }   [IS] 40v2

Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem,
and cry unto her,

 ‘That her warfare is accomplished,
that her iniquity is pardoned’; 

For she hath received of the LORD'S hand
double for all her sins.

{ heart }   [IS] 40v3

The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness,
prepare ye the way of the LORD,
make straight in the desert a highway for our GOD.

{ heart }   [IS] 40v4

Every valley shall be exalted,
and every mountain and hill shall be made low;
and the crooked shall be made straight,
and the rough places plain;

{ heart }   [IS] 40v5

And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed,
and all flesh shall see it together;


For the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

{ heart }   [IS] 40v6

The voice said,

Cry.

And he said,

 ‘What shall I cry?’ 


All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof
is as the flower of the field:

{ heart }   [IS] 40v7

The grass withereth, the flower fadeth,
because the breath of the LORD bloweth upon it;
surely the people is grass.

{ heart }   [IS] 40v8

The grass withereth, the flower fadeth,
but the word of our GOD shall stand forever.

{ heart }   [IS] 40v9

Zion, that bringest good tidings,
get thee up into the high mountain:
O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings,
lift up thy voice with strength, lift it up, be not afraid:
say unto the cities of Judah,

 ‘Behold your GOD.’

{ heart }   [IS] 40v10

Behold,
the LORD GOD will come with strong hand,
and HIS arm shall rule for HIM;
behold, HIS reward is with HIM,
and HIS work before HIM.

{ heart }   [IS] 40v11

HE shall feed HIS flock like a shepherd;
HE shall gather the lambs with HIS arm,
and carry them in HIS bosom,
and shall gently lead those that are with young.

¶ Isaiah 40 v12-31

{ heart }   [IS] 40v12

Who hath measured the waters
in the hollow of his hand,
and meted out heaven with the span,
and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure,
and weighed the mountains in scales,
and the hills in a balance?

{ heart }   [IS] 40v13

Who hath directed the SPIRIT of the LORD,
or being HIS counselor hath taught HIM?

{ heart }   [IS] 40v14

With whom took HE counsel,
and who instructed HIM,
and taught HIM in the path of judgment,
and taught HIM knowledge,
and showed to HIM the way of understanding?

{ heart }   [IS] 40v15

Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket,
and are counted as the small dust of the balance;
behold, HE taketh up the coasts isles
as a very little thing.

{ heart }   [IS] 40v16

And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn,
nor the beasts thereof sufficient for a burnt offering.

{ heart }   [IS] 40v17

All nations before HIM are as nothing;
and they are counted to HIM
less than nothing, and vanity.

{ heart }   [IS] 40v18

To whom, then, will ye liken GOD?
or what likeness will ye compare unto HIM?

{ heart }   [IS] 40v19

The workman melteth a graven image,
and the goldsmith spreadeth it over with gold,
and casteth silver chains.

{ heart }   [IS] 40v20

He that is so impoverished that he hath no oblation,
chooseth a tree that will not rot;
he seeketh unto him a skillful workman
to prepare a graven image that shall not be moved.

{ heart }   [IS] 40v21

Have ye not known? have ye not heard?
hath it not been told you from the beginning?
have ye not understood
from the foundations of the earth?

{ heart }   [IS] 40v22

It is HE
THAT sitteth upon the circle of the earth,
and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers;
THAT stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain,
and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:

{ heart }   [IS] 40v23

THAT bringeth the princes to nothing;
HE maketh the judges of the earth as vanity.

{ heart }   [IS] 40v24

Yea, they shall not be planted;
yea, they shall not be sown;
yea, their stock shall not take root in the earth;
and HE shall also blow upon them,
and they shall wither,
and the whirlwind shall take them away as stubble.

{ heart }   [IS] 40v25

To whom, then, will ye liken ME,
or shall I be equal?


Saith the HOLY ONE.

{ heart }   [IS] 40v26

Lift up your eyes on high,
and behold WHO hath created these things,
THAT bringeth out their host by number;
HE calleth them all by names
by the greatness of HIS might,
for HE is strong in power, not one faileth.

{ heart }   [IS] 40v27

Why sayest thou, O Jacob,
and speakest, O Israel,

 ‘My way is hid from the LORD,
and my judgment is passed over from my GOD’?

{ heart }   [IS] 40v28

Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard,

 ‘That the everlasting GOD, the LORD,
the CREATOR of the ends of the earth,
fainteth not, neither is weary’? 

There is no searching of HIS understanding.

{ heart }   [IS] 40v29

HE giveth power to the faint;
and to them that have no might
HE increaseth strength.

{ heart }   [IS] 40v30

Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
and the young men shall utterly fall:

{ heart }   [IS] 40v31

But they that wait upon the LORD
shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run, and not be weary;
and they shall walk, and not faint.

» Isaiah 41

¶ Isaiah 41 v1-7

{ heart }   [IS] 41v1

Keep silence before ME, O islands,
and let the people renew their strength;
let them come near, then let them speak;

 ‘Let us come near together to judgment’.

{ heart }   [IS] 41v2

WHO raised up the righteous man from the east,
called him to HIS foot,
gave the nations before him,
and made him rule over kings?
HE gave them as the dust to his sword,
and as driven stubble to his bow.

{ heart }   [IS] 41v3

He pursued them, and passed safely;
even by the way that he had not gone with his feet.

{ heart }   [IS] 41v4

WHO hath wrought and done it,
calling the generations from the beginning?
I, the LORD, the first, and with the last; I AM HE.

{ heart }   [IS] 41v5

The isles saw it, and feared;
the ends of the earth were afraid,
drew near, and came.

{ heart }   [IS] 41v6

They helped every one his neighbor;
and every one said to his brother,

 ‘Be of good courage’.

{ heart }   [IS] 41v7

So the carpenter encouraged the goldsmith,
and he that smootheth with the hammer
him that smote the anvil,
saying,

 ‘It is ready for the soldering;
and he fastened it with nails
that it should not be moved’.

Thou, whom I have taken
from the ends of the earth,
and called thee from the chief men thereof,
and said unto thee,

 ‘Thou art MY servant;
I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away’.

Fear thou not, for I AM with thee:
be not dismayed, for I AM thy GOD:
I will strengthen thee, yea, I will help thee,
yea, I will uphold thee
with the right hand of MY righteousness.

{ heart }   [IS] 41v11

Behold, all they that were incensed against thee
shall be ashamed and confounded;
they shall be as nothing,
and they that strive with thee shall perish.

{ heart }   [IS] 41v12

Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them,
even them that contended with thee;
they that war against thee shall be as nothing,
and as a thing of nought.

{ heart }   [IS] 41v13

For I, the LORD thy GOD, will hold thy right hand,
saying unto thee,

 ‘Fear not, I will help thee’.

Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel;
I will help thee,


Saith the LORD,
and thy REDEEMER, the HOLY ONE of Israel.

{ heart }   [IS] 41v15

Behold, I will make thee
a new sharp threshing instrument, having teeth;
thou shalt thresh the mountains,
and beat them small,
and shalt make the hills as chaff.

Thou shalt fan them,
and the wind shall carry them away,
and the whirlwind shall scatter them;
and thou shalt rejoice in the LORD,
and shalt glory in the HOLY ONE of Israel.

{ heart }   [IS] 41v17

When the poor and needy seek water,
and there is none,
and their tongue faileth for thirst,
I, the LORD, will hear them;
I, the GOD of Israel, will not forsake them.

{ heart }   [IS] 41v18

I will open rivers in high places,
and fountains in the midst of the valleys;
I will make the wilderness a pool of water,
and the dry land springs of water.

{ heart }   [IS] 41v19

I will plant in the wilderness
the cedar, the shittah tree,
and the myrtle, and the oil tree;
I will set in the desert the fir tree,
and the pine, and the box tree together.

Produce your cause,

Saith the LORD,

Bring forth your strong reasons,

Let them bring them forth,
and show us what shall happen;
let them show the former things,
what they be,

and know the latter end of them;
or declare us things for to come.

Show the things that are to come hereafter,
that we may know that ye are gods;
yea, do good, or do evil,

Behold, ye are of nothing,

I have raised up one from the north,
and he shall come;
from the rising of the sun shall he call

 ‘Upon MY NAME’; 

And he shall come upon princes as upon mortar,
and as the potter tread clay.

 ‘He is righteous’? 

Yea, there is none that showeth,
yea, there is none that declareth,
yea, there is none that heareth your words.

The first shall say to Zion,

 ‘Behold, behold them’; 

And I will give to Jerusalem
one that bringeth good tidings.

For I beheld, and there was no man;
even among them,
and there was no counselor,

and the smoking flax shall HE not quench;

HE shall not fail nor be discouraged,
till HE have set judgment in the earth;
and the isles shall wait for HIS law.

{ heart }   [IS] 42v5

Thus saith GOD, the LORD,

HE THAT created the heavens,
and stretched them out;
HE THAT spread forth the earth,
and that which cometh out of it;
HE THAT giveth breath unto the people upon it,
and spirit to them that walk therein:

{ heart }   [IS] 42v6

I, the LORD, have called

 ‘THEE’ 

In righteousness,
and will hold THINE hand, and will keep THEE,
and give THEE for a covenant of the people,
for a LIGHT of the Gentiles;

{ heart }   [IS] 42v7

To open the blind eyes,
to bring out the prisoners from the prison,
and them that sit in darkness
out of the prison house.

¶ Isaiah 42 v8-9

{ heart }   [IS] 42v8

and new things do I declare;
before they spring forth I tell you of them.

Sing unto the LORD a new song,
and HIS praise from the end of the earth,
ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein;
the isles, and their inhabitants thereof.

{ heart }   [IS] 42v11

Let the wilderness and the cities thereof
lift up their voice,
the villages that Kedar doth inhabit;
let the inhabitants of the rock sing,
let them shout from the top of the mountains.

{ heart }   [IS] 42v12

Let them give glory unto the LORD,
and declare HIS praise in the islands.

{ heart }   [IS] 42v13

The LORD shall go forth as a mighty man;
HE shall stir up jealousy like a man of war;
HE shall cry, yea, roar;
HE shall prevail against HIS enemies.

{ heart }   [IS] 42v14

I have for long time holden MY peace;
I have been still, and refrained MYSELF:
now will I cry like a travailing woman;
I will destroy and devour at once.

{ heart }   [IS] 42v15

I will make waste mountains and hills,
and dry up all their herbs;
and I will make the rivers islands,
and I will dry up the pools.

{ heart }   [IS] 42v16

And I will bring the blind by a way
that they knew not;
I will lead them in paths
that they have not known.
I will make darkness light before them,
and crooked things straight.
These things will I do unto them,
and not forsake them.

{ heart }   [IS] 42v17

they shall be greatly ashamed,
that trust in graven images,
that say to the molten images,

who is blind as he that is perfect,
and blind as the LORD'S servant?

opening the ears, but he heareth not.

The LORD is well pleased
for HIS righteousness' sake;
HE will magnify the law, and make it honorable.

{ heart }   [IS] 42v22

But this is a people robbed and spoiled;
they are all of them snared in holes,
and they are hidden in prison houses;
they are for a prey, and none delivereth; for a spoil,
and none saith,

 ‘Restore’.

{ heart }   [IS] 42v23

Who among you will give ear to this?
who will hearken and hear for the time to come?

{ heart }   [IS] 42v24

Who gave Jacob for a spoil,
and Israel to the robbers?
Did not the LORD,
HE against WHOM we have sinned?
For they would not walk in HIS ways,
neither were they obedient unto HIS law.

{ heart }   [IS] 42v25

Therefore, HE hath poured upon him
the fury of HIS anger,
and the strength of battle;
and it hath set him on fire round about,
yet he knew not;
and it burnt him, yet he laid it not to heart.

I have called

 ‘Thee’ 

By thy name, thou art MINE.

{ heart }   [IS] 43v2

When thou passest through the waters,
I will be with thee;
and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee;
when thou walkest through the fire,
thou shalt not be burnt;
neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

{ heart }   [IS] 43v3

For I AM the LORD thy GOD,
the HOLY ONE of Israel, thy SAVIOR;
I gave Egypt for thy ransom,
Ethiopia and Seba for thee.

{ heart }   [IS] 43v4

Since thou wast precious in MY sight,
thou hast been honorable, and I have loved thee;
therefore will I give men for thee,
and people for thy life.

{ heart }   [IS] 43v5

Fear not, for I AM with thee:
I will bring thy seed from the east,
and gather thee from the west;

{ heart }   [IS] 43v6

I will say to the north,

 ‘Give up’; 

And to the south,

 ‘Keep not back: bring MY sons from far,
and MY daughters from the ends of the earth’,

Even every one that is called

 ‘By MY NAME’; 

For I have created him for MY glory,
I have formed him; yea, I have made him.

¶ Isaiah 43 v8-13

{ heart }   [IS] 43v8

Bring forth the blind people that have eyes,
and the deaf that have ears.

{ heart }   [IS] 43v9

Let all the nations be gathered together,
and let the people be assembled:
who among them can declare this,
and show us former things?
let them bring forth their witnesses,
that they may be justified;
or let them hear, and say,

 ‘It is truth’.

{ heart }   [IS] 43v10

Ye are MY witnesses,

Saith the LORD,

And MY servant whom I have chosen;
that ye may know and believe

 ‘ME’, 

And understand

 ‘That I AM HE;
before ME there was no GOD formed,
neither shall there be after ME’.

{ heart }   [IS] 43v11

I, even I, AM the LORD;
and beside ME there is no savior.

{ heart }   [IS] 43v12

I have declared, and have saved,
and I have showed,
when there was no strange god among you;
therefore ye are MY witnesses,


Saith the LORD,

That I AM GOD.

Yea, before the day was, I AM HE;
and there is none that can deliver out of MY hand;
I will work, and who shall let it?

¶ Isaiah 43 v14-21

{ heart }   [IS] 43v14

Thus saith the LORD,
your REDEEMER, the HOLY ONE of Israel;
For your sake I have sent to Babylon,
and have brought down all their nobles,
and the Chaldeans, whose cry is in the ships.

I AM the LORD, your HOLY ONE,
the CREATOR of Israel, your KING.

Thus saith the LORD,
WHICH maketh a way in the sea,
and a path in the mighty waters;

WHICH bringeth forth the chariot and horse,
the army and the power;
they shall lie down together, they shall not rise;
they are extinct, they are quenched as a tow.

{ heart }   [IS] 43v18

Remember ye not the former things,
neither consider the things of old.

{ heart }   [IS] 43v19

Behold, I will do a new thing;
now it shall spring forth;
shall ye not know it?
I will even make a way in the wilderness,
and rivers in the desert.

The beast of the field shall honor ME,
the dragons and the owls,
because I give waters in the wilderness,

This people have I formed for MYSELF;
they shall show forth MY praise.

¶ Isaiah 43 v22-28

{ heart }   [IS] 43v22

But thou hast not called

 ‘Upon ME’, 

O Jacob;
but thou hast been weary of ME, O Israel.

{ heart }   [IS] 43v23

Thou hast not brought ME the small cattle
of thy burnt offerings;
neither hast thou honored ME with thy sacrifices.
I have not caused thee to serve with an offering,
nor wearied thee with incense.

{ heart }   [IS] 43v24

Thou hast bought ME no sweet cane
with money,
neither hast thou filled ME
with the fat of thy sacrifices;
but thou hast made ME to serve with thy sins,
thou hast wearied ME with thine iniquities.

{ heart }   [IS] 43v25

I, even I, AM HE THAT blotteth out
thy transgressions
for MINE OWN sake,
and will not remember thy sins.

Put ME in remembrance;
let us plead together;
declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.

Thy first father hath sinned,
and thy teachers have transgressed against ME.

and have given Jacob to the curse,
and Israel to reproaches.

Thus saith the LORD THAT made thee,
and formed thee from the womb,
WHICH will help thee:
fear not, O Jacob, MY servant;
and thou, Jeshurun, whom I have chosen.

{ heart }   [IS] 44v3

For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty,
and floods upon the dry ground;
I will pour MY SPIRIT upon thy seed,
and MY blessing upon thine offspring;

{ heart }   [IS] 44v4

And they shall spring up as among the grass,
as willows by the water courses.

{ heart }   [IS] 44v5

One shall say,

unto the LORD;
and surname himself by the name of Israel.

Thus saith the LORD, the KING of Israel,
and his REDEEMER, the LORD of hosts:
I AM the FIRST, and I AM the LAST;
and beside ME there is no GOD.

and set it in order for ME,
since I appointed the ancient people?
and the things that are coming, and shall come?
let them show unto them.

Fear ye not, neither be afraid;
have not I told thee from that time,
and have declared it?
ye are even MY witnesses.
Is there a GOD beside ME?
yea, there is no GOD, I know not any.

¶ Isaiah 44 v9-20

{ heart }   [IS] 44v9

They that make a graven image
are all of them vanity;
and their delectable things shall not profit;
and they are their own witnesses,
they see not, nor know;
that they may be ashamed.

{ heart }   [IS] 44v10

Who hath formed a god, or molten a graven image
that is profitable for nothing?

{ heart }   [IS] 44v11

Behold, all his fellows shall be ashamed;
and the workmen, they are of men:
let them all be gathered together,
let them stand up; yet they shall fear,
and they shall be ashamed together.

{ heart }   [IS] 44v12

The smith with the tongs both worketh in the coals,
and fashioneth it with hammers,
and worketh it with the strength of his arms:
yea, he is hungry, and his strength faileth;
he drinketh no water, and is faint.

{ heart }   [IS] 44v13

The carpenter stretcheth out his rule;
he marketh it out with a line; he fitteth it with planes,
and he marketh it out with the compass,
and maketh it after the figure of a man,
according to the beauty of a man,
that it may remain in the house.

{ heart }   [IS] 44v14

He heweth him down cedars,
and taketh the cypress and the oak,
which he strengtheneth for himself
among the trees of the forest;
he planteth an ash, and the rain doth nourish it.

Then shall it be for a man to burn;
for he will take thereof, and warm 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.

{ heart }   [IS] 44v16

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’;

{ heart }   [IS] 44v17

And the residue thereof he maketh a god,
even his graven image;
he falleth down unto it, and worshippeth it,
and prayeth unto it, and saith,

 ‘Deliver me, for thou art my god’.

{ heart }   [IS] 44v18

They have not known nor understood;
for HE hath shut their eyes, that they cannot see;
and their hearts, that they cannot understand.

{ heart }   [IS] 44v19

And none considereth in his heart,
neither is there knowledge nor understanding
to say,

 ‘I have burnt 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’?

{ heart }   [IS] 44v20

He feedeth on ashes;
a deceived heart hath turned him aside,
that he cannot deliver his soul, nor say,

 ‘Is there not a lie in my right hand’?

THAT maketh all things;
THAT stretcheth forth the heavens alone;
THAT spreadeth abroad the earth by MYSELF;

THAT frustrateth the tokens of the liars,
and maketh diviners mad;
THAT turneth wise men backward,
and maketh their knowledge foolish;

THAT confirmeth the word of HIS servant,
and performeth the counsel of HIS messengers;

THAT saith to the deep,

Thus saith the LORD
to HIS anointed,


To Cyrus whose right hand I have holden,
to subdue nations before him;
and I will loose the loins of kings,
to open before him the two-leaved gates;
and the gates shall not be shut:

{ heart }   [IS] 45v2

I will go before thee,
and make the crooked places straight;
I will break in pieces the gates of bronze,
and cut in sunder the bars of iron;

{ heart }   [IS] 45v3

And I will give thee the treasures of darkness,
and hidden riches of secret places,
that thou mayest know

 ‘That I, the LORD, WHICH call thee by thy name,
AM the GOD of Israel’.

{ heart }   [IS] 45v4

For Jacob, MY servant's sake,
and Israel MINE elect,
I have even called thee by thy name;
I have surnamed thee,
though thou hast not known

 ‘ME’.

I AM the LORD, and there is none else,
there is no GOD beside ME;
I girded thee, though thou hast not known

 ‘ME’,

That they may know

 ‘From the rising of the sun, and from the west,
that there is none beside ME.
I AM the LORD, and there is none else’.

{ heart }   [IS] 45v8

Drop down, ye heavens, from above,
and let the skies pour down righteousness;
let the earth open,
and let them bring forth salvation,
and let righteousness spring up together;
I, the LORD, have created it.

{ heart }   [IS] 45v9

Woe unto him that striveth with his MAKER:
Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds
of the earth:
shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it,

 ‘What makest thou?’ 

Or thy work,

 ‘He hath no hands’?

{ heart }   [IS] 45v10

Woe unto him that saith unto his father,

 ‘What begettest thou?’ 

Or to the woman,

Thus saith the LORD,
the HOLY ONE of Israel, and his MAKER:
Ask ME of things to come concerning MY sons,
and concerning the work of MY hands,
command ye ME.

I have made the earth, and created man upon it;
I, even MY hands, have stretched out the heavens,
and all their host have I commanded.

Thus saith the LORD,

The labor of Egypt,
and merchandise of Ethiopia and of the Sabeans,
men of stature, shall come over unto thee,
and they shall be thine;
they shall come after thee;
in chains they shall come over,
and they shall fall down unto thee,

saying,

 ‘Surely GOD is in thee, and there is none else,
there is no GOD’.

{ heart }   [IS] 45v15

Verily thou art a GOD THAT hidest THYSELF,
O GOD of Israel, the SAVIOR.

They shall be ashamed, and also confounded,
all of them;
they shall go to confusion together
that are makers of idols.

But Israel shall be saved in the LORD
with an everlasting salvation;
ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded
world without end.

For thus saith the LORD
THAT created the heavens,
GOD HIMSELF THAT formed the earth and made it;
HE hath established it,

HE formed it to be inhabited:


I AM the LORD, and there is none else.

{ heart }   [IS] 45v19

I have not spoken in secret,
in a dark place of the earth.
I said not unto the seed of Jacob,
seek ye ME in vain;
I, the LORD, speak righteousness,
I declare things that are right.

{ heart }   [IS] 45v20

Assemble yourselves and come;
draw near together
ye that are escaped of the nations;
they have no knowledge
that set up the wood of their graven image,
and pray unto a god that cannot save.

{ heart }   [IS] 45v21

Tell ye, and bring them near;
yea let them take counsel together,
WHO hath declared this from ancient time?
WHO hath told it from that time?
Have not I, the LORD?
and there is no GOD else beside ME,
a just GOD and a SAVIOR;

I have sworn by MYSELF,
the word is gone out of MY mouth in righteousness,
and shall not return,
That unto ME every knee shall bow,
every tongue shall swear.

{ heart }   [IS] 45v24

Surely, shall one say,

 ‘In the LORD
have I righteousness and strength’; 

Even to HIM shall men come;
and all that are incensed against HIM
shall be ashamed.

In the LORD
shall all the seed of Israel be justified,
and shall glory.

¶ Isaiah 46 v1-2

{ heart }   [IS] 46v1

Bel boweth down, Nebo stoopeth,
their idols were upon the beasts, and upon the cattle;

they are a burden to the weary beast.

They stoop, they bow down together;
they could not deliver the burden,
but themselves are gone into captivity.

¶ Isaiah 46 v3-4

{ heart }   [IS] 46v3

Hearken unto ME, O house of Jacob,
and all the remnant of the house of Israel,
which are borne by ME from the belly,
which are carried from the womb;

And even to your old age I AM HE;
and even to hoar hairs will I carry you;
I have made, and I will bear;
even I will carry, and will deliver you.

¶ Isaiah 46 v5-11

{ heart }   [IS] 46v5

To whom will ye liken ME, and make ME equal,
and compare ME, that we may be alike?

{ heart }   [IS] 46v6

They lavish gold out of the bag,
and weigh silver in the balance,
and hire a goldsmith; and he maketh it a god:
they fall down, yea, they worship.

{ heart }   [IS] 46v7

They bear him upon the shoulder,
they carry him, and set him in his place,
and he standeth;
from his place shall he not remove;
yea, one shall cry unto him,
yet can he not answer,
nor save him out of his trouble.

{ heart }   [IS] 46v8

Remember this, and show yourselves men;
bring it again to mind, O ye transgressors.

{ heart }   [IS] 46v9

Remember the former things of old;
for I AM GOD, and there is none else;
I AM GOD, and there is none like ME,

Declaring the end from the beginning,
and from ancient times
the things that are not yet done,
saying,

 ‘MY counsel shall stand,
and I will do all MY pleasure’;

{ heart }   [IS] 46v11

Calling a ravenous bird from the east,
the man that executeth MY counsel
from a far country;
yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass;
I have purposed it, I will also do it.

¶ Isaiah 46 v12-13

{ heart }   [IS] 46v12

Hearken unto ME, ye stouthearted,
that are far from righteousness:

{ heart }   [IS] 46v13

it shall not be far off,
and MY salvation shall not tarry;
and I will place salvation in Zion
for Israel, MY glory.

» Isaiah 47

¶ Isaiah 47 v1-15

{ heart }   [IS] 47v1

Come down, and sit in the dust,
O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground;
there is no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans;
for thou shalt no more be called

 ‘Tender and delicate’.

{ heart }   [IS] 47v2

Take the millstones, and grind meal;
uncover thy locks, make bare the leg,
uncover the thigh, pass over the rivers.

{ heart }   [IS] 47v3

Thy nakedness shall be uncovered,
yea, thy shame shall be seen;
I will take vengeance,
and I will not meet thee as a man.

{ heart }   [IS] 47v4

As for our REDEEMER,

 ‘The LORD of hosts’ 

Is HIS NAME,
the HOLY ONE of Israel.

{ heart }   [IS] 47v5

Sit thou silent, and get thee into darkness,
O daughter of the Chaldeans;
for thou shalt no more be called,

 ‘The lady of kingdoms’.

{ heart }   [IS] 47v6

I was angry with MY people,
I have polluted MINE inheritance,
and given them into thine hand;
thou didst show them no mercy;
upon the ancient
hast thou very heavily laid thy yoke.

{ heart }   [IS] 47v7

And thou saidst,

 ‘I shall be a lady forever’; 

So that thou didst not lay these things to thy heart,
neither didst remember the latter end of it.

{ heart }   [IS] 47v8

Therefore, hear now this,
thou that art given to pleasures,
that dwellest carelessly,
that sayest in thine heart,

 ‘I am, and none else beside me;
I shall not sit as a widow, neither shall I know

The loss of children’.

{ heart }   [IS] 47v9

But these two things shall come to thee
in a moment, in one day:
the loss of children, and widowhood;
they shall come upon thee in their perfection
for the multitude of thy sorceries,
and for the great abundance
of thine enchantments.

{ heart }   [IS] 47v10

For thou hast trusted in thy wickedness;
thou hast said,

 ‘None seeth me’. 

Thy wisdom and thy knowledge,
it hath perverted thee;
and thou hast said in thine heart,

 ‘I am, and none else beside me’.

{ heart }   [IS] 47v11

Therefore shall evil come upon thee;
thou shalt not know from whence it riseth,
and mischief shall fall upon thee;
thou shalt not be able to put it off,
and desolation shall come upon thee suddenly,
which thou shalt not know.

{ heart }   [IS] 47v12

Stand now with thine enchantments,
and with the multitude of thy sorceries,
wherein thou hast labored from thy youth;
if so be thou shalt be able to profit,
if so be thou mayest prevail.

{ heart }   [IS] 47v13

Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels.
let now the astrologers, the stargazers,
the monthly prognosticators,
stand up, and save thee from these things
that shall come upon thee.

{ heart }   [IS] 47v14

Behold, they shall be as stubble;
the fire shall burn them;
they shall not deliver themselves
from the power of the flame;
there shall not be a coal to warm at,
nor fire to sit before it.

{ heart }   [IS] 47v15

Thus shall they be unto thee
with whom thou hast labored,
even thy merchants, from thy youth;
they shall wander every one to his quarter;
none shall save thee.

» Isaiah 48

¶ Isaiah 48 v1-11

{ heart }   [IS] 48v1

Hear ye this, O house of Jacob,
which are called by the name of Israel,
and are come forth out of the waters of Judah;
which swear by the NAME of the LORD,
and make mention of the GOD of Israel,
but not in truth, nor in righteousness.

{ heart }   [IS] 48v2

For they call themselves

 ‘Of the holy city’, 

And stay themselves upon the GOD of Israel;

 ‘The LORD of hosts’ 

Is HIS NAME.

{ heart }   [IS] 48v3

I have declared the former things
from the beginning;
and they went forth out of MY mouth,
and I showed them,
I did them suddenly, and they came to pass.

{ heart }   [IS] 48v4

Because I knew

 ‘That thou art obstinate’, 

And thy neck is an iron sinew,
and thy brow, bronze,

{ heart }   [IS] 48v5

I have even from the beginning
declared it to thee;
before it came to pass I showed it thee;
lest thou shouldest say,

 ‘Mine idol hath done them,
and my graven image, and my molten image,
hath commanded them’.

{ heart }   [IS] 48v6

Thou hast heard,

 ‘See all this’, 

And will not ye declare it?
I have showed thee new things from this time,
even hidden things,
and thou didst not know them.

{ heart }   [IS] 48v7

They are created now, and not from the beginning;
even before the day when thou heardest them not,
lest thou shouldest say,

 ‘Behold, I knew them’.

{ heart }   [IS] 48v8

Yea, thou heardest not;
yea, thou knewest not;
yea, from that time that thine ear was not opened;
for I knew

 ‘That thou wouldest deal very treacherously’, 

And wast called a transgressor from the womb.

{ heart }   [IS] 48v9

For MY NAME'S sake will I defer MINE anger,
and for MY praise will I refrain for thee,
that I cut thee not off.

{ heart }   [IS] 48v10

Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver;
I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.

{ heart }   [IS] 48v11

For MINE OWN sake,
even for MINE OWN sake, will I do it;
for how should MY NAME be polluted?
And I will not give MY glory unto another.

¶ Isaiah 48 v12-19

{ heart }   [IS] 48v12

Hearken unto ME, O Jacob and Israel, MY called:
I AM HE;
I AM the FIRST, I also AM the LAST.

{ heart }   [IS] 48v13

MINE hand also hath laid the foundation
of the earth,
and MY right hand hath spanned the heavens;
when I call unto them, they stand up together.

{ heart }   [IS] 48v14

All ye, assemble yourselves, and hear:
which among them hath declared these things?
the LORD hath loved him;
HE will do HIS pleasure on Babylon,
and HIS arm shall be on the Chaldeans.

{ heart }   [IS] 48v15

I, even I, have spoken, yea, I have called him:
I have brought him,
and he shall make his way prosperous.

{ heart }   [IS] 48v16

Come ye near unto ME, hear ye this:
I have not spoken in secret from the beginning;
from the time that it was, there AM I;
and now the LORD GOD, and HIS SPIRIT,
hath sent ME.

{ heart }   [IS] 48v17

Thus saith the LORD,
thy REDEEMER, the HOLY ONE of Israel:


I AM the LORD thy GOD,
WHICH teacheth thee to profit,
WHICH leadeth thee by the way
that thou shouldest go.

{ heart }   [IS] 48v18

Oh, that thou hadst hearkened
to MY commandments!
then had thy peace been as a river,
and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea;

{ heart }   [IS] 48v19

Thy seed also had been as the sand,
and the offspring of thy bowels
like the gravel thereof;
his name should not have been cut off
nor destroyed from before ME.

¶ Isaiah 48 v20-21

{ heart }   [IS] 48v20

Go ye forth of Babylon, flee ye from the Chaldeans,
with a voice of singing, declare ye,
tell this, utter it even to the end of the earth;
say ye:

 ‘The LORD hath redeemed HIS servant Jacob’.

{ heart }   [IS] 48v21

And they thirsted not
when HE led them through the deserts;
HE caused the waters to flow out of the rock for them;
HE clave the rock also, and the waters gushed out.

¶ Isaiah 48 v22

{ heart }   [IS] 48v22

There is no peace,

Saith the LORD,

Unto the wicked.

» Isaiah 49

¶ Isaiah 49 v1-6

{ heart }   [IS] 49v1

Listen, O isles, unto ME;
and hearken, ye people, from far:

 ‘The LORD hath called

ME

From the womb;
from the bowels of MY mother
hath HE made mention of MY NAME’.

{ heart }   [IS] 49v2

And HE hath made MY mouth like a sharp sword;
in the shadow of HIS hand hath HE hid ME,
and made ME a polished shaft;
in HIS quiver hath HE hid ME,

{ heart }   [IS] 49v3

And said unto ME,

 ‘THOU art MY SERVANT,
O Israel,
in WHOM I will be glorified’.

{ heart }   [IS] 49v4

Then I said,

 ‘I have labored in vain,
I have spent MY strength for nought, and in vain;
yet surely MY judgment is with the LORD,
and MY work with MY GOD.

{ heart }   [IS] 49v5

And now, saith the LORD
THAT formed ME from the womb
to be HIS SERVANT,
to bring Jacob again to HIM,
though Israel be not gathered,
yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the LORD,
and MY GOD shall be MY strength.

{ heart }   [IS] 49v6

And HE said,

 ‘It is a light thing that THOU shouldest be
MY SERVANT
to raise up the tribes of Jacob,
and to restore the preserved of Israel;
I will also give THEE for a light to the Gentiles,
that THOU mayest be MY salvation
unto the end of the earth’.

¶ Isaiah 49 v7-13

{ heart }   [IS] 49v7

Thus saith the LORD,
the REDEEMER of Israel, and HIS HOLY ONE,
to HIM WHOM man despiseth,
to HIM WHOM the nation abhorreth,
to a SERVANT of rulers:


Kings shall see and arise,
princes also shall worship,
because of the LORD THAT is faithful,
and the HOLY ONE of Israel,
and HE shall choose THEE.

{ heart }   [IS] 49v8

Thus saith the LORD:

In an acceptable time have I heard THEE,
and in a day of salvation have I helped THEE;
and I will preserve THEE,
and give THEE for a covenant of the people,
to establish the earth,
to cause to inherit the desolate heritages,

{ heart }   [IS] 49v9

That THOU mayest say to the prisoners,

 ‘Go forth’; 

To them that are in darkness,

 ‘Show yourselves’; 

They shall feed in the ways,
and their pastures shall be in all high places.

{ heart }   [IS] 49v10

They shall not hunger nor thirst;
neither shall the heat nor sun smite them;
for HE THAT hath mercy on them shall lead them,
even by the springs of water shall HE guide them.

{ heart }   [IS] 49v11

And I will make all MY mountains a way,
and MY highways shall be exalted.

{ heart }   [IS] 49v12

Behold, these shall come from far;
and, lo, these from the north and from the west;
and these from the land of Sinim.

{ heart }   [IS] 49v13

Sing, O heavens, and be joyful, O earth;
and break forth into singing, O mountains;
for the LORD hath comforted HIS people,
and will have mercy upon HIS afflicted.

¶ Isaiah 49 v14-21

{ heart }   [IS] 49v14

But Zion said,

 ‘The LORD hath forsaken me,
and my LORD hath forgotten me’.

{ heart }   [IS] 49v15

Can a woman forget her sucking child,
that she should not have compassion
on the son of her womb?
yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.

{ heart }   [IS] 49v16

Behold,
I have graven thee upon the palms of MY hands;
thy walls are continually before ME.

{ heart }   [IS] 49v17

Thy children shall make haste;
thy destroyers and they that made thee waste
shall go forth of thee.

{ heart }   [IS] 49v18

Lift up thine eyes round about,
and behold: all these gather themselves together,
and come to thee:

 ‘As I live, saith the LORD,
Thou shalt surely clothe thee with them all,
as with an ornament,
and bind them on thee, as a bride doeth’.

{ heart }   [IS] 49v19

For thy waste and thy desolate places,
and the land of thy destruction,
shall even now be too narrow
by reason of the inhabitants,
and they that swallowed thee up shall be far away.

{ heart }   [IS] 49v20

The children whom thou shalt have,
after thou hast lost the other,
shall say again in thine ears,

 ‘The place is too strait for me;
give place to me that I may dwell’.

{ heart }   [IS] 49v21

Then shalt thou say in thine heart,

 ‘Who hath begotten me these,
seeing I have lost my children,
and am desolate, a captive,
and removing to and fro?
and who hath brought up these?
Behold, I was left alone;
these, where had they been’?

¶ Isaiah 49 v22-23

{ heart }   [IS] 49v22

Thus saith the LORD GOD:
Behold,
I will lift up MINE hand to the Gentiles,
and set up MY standard to the peoples;
and they shall bring thy sons in their arms,
and thy daughters shall be carried
upon their shoulders.

{ heart }   [IS] 49v23

And kings shall be thy nursing fathers,
and their queens thy nursing mothers;
they shall bow down to thee
with their face toward the earth,
and lick up the dust of thy feet,
and thou shalt know

 ‘That I AM the LORD’; 

For they shall not be ashamed that wait for ME.

¶ Isaiah 49 v24-26

{ heart }   [IS] 49v24

Shall the prey be taken from the mighty,
or the lawful captive delivered?

{ heart }   [IS] 49v25

But thus saith the LORD:
Even the captives of the mighty
shall be taken away,
and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered;
for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee,
and I will save thy children.

{ heart }   [IS] 49v26

And I will feed them that oppress thee
with their own flesh;
and they shall be drunken with their own blood,
as with sweet wine;
and all flesh shall know

 ‘That I, the LORD,
AM thy SAVIOR and thy REDEEMER,
the MIGHTY ONE of Jacob.

» Isaiah 50

¶ Isaiah 50 v1-3

{ heart }   [IS] 50v1

Thus saith the LORD:
Where is the bill of your mother's divorcement,
whom I have put away?
or which of MY creditors is it
to whom I have sold you?
Behold, for your iniquities have ye sold yourselves,
and for your transgressions
is your mother put away.

{ heart }   [IS] 50v2

Wherefore, when I came, was there no man?
when I called, was there none to answer?
Is MY hand shortened at all, that it cannot redeem?
or have I no power to deliver?
Behold, at MY rebuke I dry up the sea,
I make the rivers a wilderness;
their fish stinketh, because there is no water,
and dieth for thirst.

{ heart }   [IS] 50v3

I clothe the heavens with blackness,
and I make sackcloth their covering.

¶ Isaiah 50 v4-9

{ heart }   [IS] 50v4

The LORD GOD hath given ME
the tongue of the learned,
that I should know

 ‘How to speak a word in season
to him that is weary’; 

HE awakeneth morning by morning;
HE waketh MINE ear to hear as the learned.

{ heart }   [IS] 50v5

The LORD GOD hath opened MINE ear,
and I was not rebellious, neither turned away back.

{ heart }   [IS] 50v6

I gave MY back to the smiters,
and MY cheeks to them that plucked off the hair;
I hid not MY face from shame and spitting.

{ heart }   [IS] 50v7

For the LORD GOD will help ME;
therefore shall I not be confounded;
therefore have I set MY face like a flint,
and I know

 ‘That I shall not be ashamed’.

{ heart }   [IS] 50v8

HE is near THAT justifieth ME,
who will contend with ME?
let us stand together:
who is MINE adversary?
let him come near to ME.

Behold, the LORD GOD will help ME,
who is he that shall condemn ME?
Lo, they all shall wax old as a garment:
the moth shall eat them up.

¶ Isaiah 50 v10-11

{ heart }   [IS] 50v10

Who is among you that feareth the LORD,
that obeyeth the voice of HIS SERVANT,
that walketh in darkness, and hath no light?
let him trust in the NAME of the LORD,
and stay upon his GOD.

{ heart }   [IS] 50v11

Behold, all ye that kindle a fire,
that compass yourselves about with sparks:
walk in the light of your fire,
and in the sparks that ye have kindled.
This shall ye have of MINE hand;
ye shall lie down in sorrow.

¶ Isaiah 51 v1-3

{ heart }   [IS] 51v1

Hearken to ME,
ye that follow after righteousness,
ye that seek the LORD;
look unto the rock from whence ye are hewn,
and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged.

{ heart }   [IS] 51v2

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

{ heart }   [IS] 51v3

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.

¶ Isaiah 51 v4-5

{ heart }   [IS] 51v4

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 peoples.

MY righteousness is near;
MY salvation is gone forth,
and MINE arms shall judge the peoples;
the isles shall wait upon ME,
and on MINE arm shall they trust.

¶ Isaiah 51 v6-8

{ heart }   [IS] 51v6

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 forever,
and MY righteousness shall not be abolished.

{ heart }   [IS] 51v7

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.

{ heart }   [IS] 51v8

For the moth shall eat them up like a garment,
and the worm shall eat them like wool,
but MY righteousness shall be forever,
and MY salvation from generation to generation.

¶ Isaiah 51 v9-16

{ heart }   [IS] 51v9

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?

{ heart }   [IS] 51v10

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?

{ heart }   [IS] 51v11

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.

{ heart }   [IS] 51v12

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,

{ heart }   [IS] 51v13

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?

{ heart }   [IS] 51v14

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

{ heart }   [IS] 51v15

But I AM the LORD, thy GOD,
THAT divided the sea, whose waves roared;

 ‘The LORD of hosts’ 

Is HIS NAME.

{ heart }   [IS] 51v16

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’.

¶ Isaiah 51 v17-23

{ heart }   [IS] 51v17

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.

{ heart }   [IS] 51v18

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.

{ heart }   [IS] 51v19

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?

{ heart }   [IS] 51v20

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.

{ heart }   [IS] 51v21

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

{ heart }   [IS] 51v22

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,

{ heart }   [IS] 51v23

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.

¶ Isaiah 52 v1-12

put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem,
the holy city;
for henceforth there shall no more come into thee
the uncircumcised and the unclean.

{ heart }   [IS] 52v2

Shake thyself from the dust;
arise, and sit down, O Jerusalem;
loose thyself from the bands of thy neck,
O captive daughter of Zion.

{ heart }   [IS] 52v3

For thus saith the LORD,

Ye have sold yourselves for nought;
and ye shall be redeemed without money.

{ heart }   [IS] 52v4

For thus saith the LORD GOD:
MY people went down aforetime into Egypt
to sojourn there;
and the Assyrian oppressed them without cause.

{ heart }   [IS] 52v5

Now, therefore, what have I here,

Saith the LORD,

That MY people is taken away for nought?
They that rule over them make them to howl,


Saith the LORD,

And MY NAME
continually every day is blasphemed.

{ heart }   [IS] 52v6

Therefore, MY people shall know

 ‘MY NAME’; 

Therefore, they shall know in that day

 ‘That I AM HE THAT doth speak’; 

Behold, IT is I.

{ heart }   [IS] 52v7

How beautiful upon the mountains
are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings,
that publisheth peace;
that bringeth good tidings of good,
that publisheth salvation;
that saith unto Zion,

 ‘Thy GOD reigneth’?

Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice;
with the voice together shall they sing;
for they shall see eye to eye,
when the LORD shall bring again Zion.

Break forth into joy,
sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem;
for the LORD hath comforted HIS people,
HE hath redeemed Jerusalem.

{ heart }   [IS] 52v10

The LORD hath made bare HIS holy arm
in the eyes of all the nations,
and all the ends of the earth
shall see the salvation of our GOD.

Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence,
touch no unclean thing;
go ye out of the midst of her;
be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the LORD.

¶ Isaiah 52 v13-15

{ heart }   [IS] 52v13

Behold, MY SERVANT shall deal prudently,
HE shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high.

{ heart }   [IS] 52v14

As many were astounded at thee
(HIS visage was so marred more than any man,
and HIS form more than the sons of men:)

{ heart }   [IS] 52v15

So shall HE sprinkle many nations;
the kings shall shut their mouths at HIM;
for that which had not been told them
shall they see,
and that which they had not heard
shall they consider.

» Isaiah 53

¶ Isaiah 53 v1-9

{ heart }   [IS] 53v1

Who hath believed our report?
and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?

{ heart }   [IS] 53v2

For HE shall grow up before HIM
as a tender plant,
and as a root out of a dry ground:
HE hath no form nor comeliness:
and when we shall see HIM,
there is no beauty that we should desire HIM.

{ heart }   [IS] 53v3

HE is despised and rejected of men;
a MAN of sorrows, and acquainted with grief:
and we hid as it were our faces from HIM;
HE was despised, and we esteemed HIM not.

{ heart }   [IS] 53v4

Surely HE hath borne our griefs,
and carried our sorrows;
yet we did esteem HIM stricken,
smitten of GOD, and afflicted.

{ heart }   [IS] 53v5

But HE was wounded for our transgressions,
HE was bruised for our iniquities;
the chastisement of our peace was upon HIM;
and with HIS stripes we are healed.

{ heart }   [IS] 53v6

All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned every one to his own way,
and the LORD hath laid on HIM
the iniquity of us all.

{ heart }   [IS] 53v7

HE was oppressed, and HE was afflicted,
yet HE opened not HIS mouth;
HE is brought as a LAMB to the slaughter,
and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb,
so HE openeth not HIS mouth.

{ heart }   [IS] 53v8

HE was taken from prison and from judgment;
and who shall declare HIS generation?
for HE was cut off out of the land of the living;
for the transgression of MY people
was HE stricken.

{ heart }   [IS] 53v9

And HE made HIS grave
with the wicked, and with the rich
in HIS death;
because HE had done no violence,
neither was any deceit in HIS mouth.

¶ Isaiah 53 v10-12

{ heart }   [IS] 53v10

Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise HIM;
HE hath put HIM to grief;
when THOU shalt make HIS soul an offering
for sin,
HE shall see HIS seed,
HE shall prolong HIS days,
and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper
in HIS hand.

{ heart }   [IS] 53v11

HE shall see of the travail of HIS soul,
and shall be satisfied;
by HIS knowledge
shall MY righteous SERVANT justify many;
for HE shall bear their iniquities.

{ heart }   [IS] 53v12

Therefore
will I divide HIM a portion with the great,
and HE shall divide the spoil with the strong;
because HE hath poured out HIS soul unto death;
and HE was numbered with the transgressors;
and HE bare the sin of many,
and made intercession for the transgressors.

» Isaiah 54

¶ Isaiah 54 v1-17

{ heart }   [IS] 54v1

Sing, O barren thou that didst not bear;
break forth into singing, and cry aloud,
thou that didst not travail with child;
for more are the children of the desolate
than the children of the married wife,


Saith the LORD.

{ heart }   [IS] 54v2

Enlarge the place of thy tent,
and let them stretch forth the curtains
of thine habitations;
spare not,
lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes;

{ heart }   [IS] 54v3

For thou shalt break forth
on the right hand and on the left;
and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles,
and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.

{ heart }   [IS] 54v4

Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed,
neither be thou confounded;
for thou shalt not be put to shame;
for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth,
and shalt not remember
the reproach of thy widowhood any more.

{ heart }   [IS] 54v5

For thy MAKER is thine husband;

 ‘(The LORD of hosts;)’ 

Is HIS NAME;
and thy REDEEMER, the HOLY ONE of Israel;

 ‘The GOD of the whole earth’ 

Shall HE be called.

{ heart }   [IS] 54v6

For the LORD hath called thee
as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit,
and a wife of youth, when thou wast refused,


Saith thy GOD.

{ heart }   [IS] 54v7

For a small moment have I forsaken thee,
but with great mercies will I gather thee.

{ heart }   [IS] 54v8

In a little wrath
I hid MY face from thee for a moment;
but with everlasting kindness
will I have mercy on thee,


Saith the LORD, thy REDEEMER.

{ heart }   [IS] 54v9

For this is as the waters of Noah unto ME;
for as I have sworn

 ‘That the waters of Noah
should no more go over the earth’; 

So have I sworn

 ‘That I would not be wroth with thee,
nor rebuke thee’.

{ heart }   [IS] 54v10

For the mountains shall depart,
and the hills be removed;
but MY kindness shall not depart from thee,
neither shall the covenant of MY peace
be removed,


Saith the LORD,
THAT hath mercy on thee.

{ heart }   [IS] 54v11

O thou afflicted,
tossed with tempest, and not comforted,
behold, I will lay thy stones with fair colors,
and lay thy foundations with sapphires.

{ heart }   [IS] 54v12

And I will make thy windows of agates,
and thy gates of carbuncles,
and all thy borders of pleasant stones.

{ heart }   [IS] 54v13

And all thy children shall be taught

 ‘Of the LORD’, 

And great shall be the peace of thy children.

{ heart }   [IS] 54v14

In righteousness shalt thou be established;
thou shalt be far from oppression;
for thou shalt not fear:
and from terror; for it shall not come near thee.

{ heart }   [IS] 54v15

Behold, they shall surely gather together,
but not by ME;
whosoever shall gather together against thee
shall fall for thy sake.

{ heart }   [IS] 54v16

Behold, I have created the smith
that bloweth the coals in the fire,
and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work;
and I have created the waster to destroy.

{ heart }   [IS] 54v17

No weapon that is formed against thee
shall prosper;
and every tongue that shall rise against thee
in judgment, thou shalt condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD,
and their righteousness is of ME,


Saith the LORD.

» Isaiah 55

¶ Isaiah 55 v1-9

{ heart }   [IS] 55v1

Ho, every one that thirsteth,
come ye to the waters,
and he that hath no money:
come ye, buy, and eat, yea,
come, buy wine and milk
without money and without price.

{ heart }   [IS] 55v2

Wherefore do ye spend money
for that which is not bread?
and your labor for that which satisfieth not?
hearken diligently unto ME,
and eat ye that which is good,
and let your soul delight itself in fatness.

{ heart }   [IS] 55v3

Incline your ear, and come unto ME;
hear, and your soul shall live;
and I will make an everlasting covenant with you,
even the sure mercies of David.

{ heart }   [IS] 55v4

Behold,
I have given him for a witness to the peoples,
a leader and commander to the peoples.

{ heart }   [IS] 55v5

Behold,
thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not,
and nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee
because of the LORD, thy GOD,
and for the HOLY ONE of Israel;
for HE hath glorified thee.

{ heart }   [IS] 55v6

Seek ye the LORD while HE may be found,
call ye

 ‘Upon HIM’ 

While HE is near:

{ heart }   [IS] 55v7

Let the wicked forsake his way,
and the unrighteous man his thoughts,
and let him return unto the LORD,
and HE will have mercy upon him, and to our GOD,
for HE will abundantly pardon.

{ heart }   [IS] 55v8

For MY thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways MY ways,


Saith the LORD.

{ heart }   [IS] 55v9

For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are MY ways higher than your ways,
and MY thoughts than your thoughts.

¶ Isaiah 55 v10-13

{ heart }   [IS] 55v10

For as the rain cometh down,
and the snow from heaven,
and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth,
and maketh it bring forth and bud,
that it may give
seed to the sower, and bread to the eater,

{ heart }   [IS] 55v11

So shall MY word be
that goeth forth out of MY mouth;
it shall not return unto ME void,
but it shall accomplish that which I please,
and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

{ heart }   [IS] 55v12

For ye shall go out with joy,
and be led forth with peace;
the mountains and the hills
shall break forth before you into singing,
and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

{ heart }   [IS] 55v13

Instead of the thorn
shall come up the fir tree,
and instead of the brier
shall come up the myrtle tree;
and it shall be to the LORD for a NAME,
for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.

» Isaiah 56

¶ Isaiah 56 v1-8

{ heart }   [IS] 56v1

Thus saith the LORD:

Keep ye judgment, and do justice;
for MY salvation is near to come,
and MY righteousness to be revealed.

{ heart }   [IS] 56v2

Blessed is the man that doeth this,
and the son of man that layeth hold on it;
that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it,
and keepeth his hand from doing any evil.

{ heart }   [IS] 56v3

Neither let the son of the foreigner,
that hath joined himself to the LORD, speak,
saying,

 ‘The LORD hath utterly separated me
from HIS people’; 

Neither let the eunuch say,

 ‘Behold, I am a dry tree’.

{ heart }   [IS] 56v4

For thus saith the LORD
unto the eunuchs that keep MY sabbaths,
and choose the things that please ME,
and take hold of MY covenant:

{ heart }   [IS] 56v5

Even unto them will I give
in MINE house and within MY walls
a place and a name
better than of sons and of daughters;
I will give them an everlasting name,
that shall not be cut off.

{ heart }   [IS] 56v6

Also the sons of the foreigner,
that join themselves to the LORD,
to serve HIM, and to love the NAME of the LORD,
to be HIS servants,
every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it,
and taketh hold of MY covenant;

{ heart }   [IS] 56v7

Even them will I bring to MY holy mountain,
and make them joyful in MY house of prayer;
their burnt offerings and their sacrifices
shall be accepted upon MINE altar;
for MINE house shall be called

 ‘An house of prayer’ 

For all peoples.

{ heart }   [IS] 56v8

The LORD GOD,
WHICH gathereth the outcasts of Israel,
saith,

 ‘Yet will I gather others to him,
beside those that are gathered unto him’.

¶ Isaiah 56 v9-12

{ heart }   [IS] 56v9

All ye beasts of the field, come to devour,
yea, all ye beasts in the forest.

{ heart }   [IS] 56v10

His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant,
they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark;
sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.

{ heart }   [IS] 56v11

Yea, they are greedy dogs
that can never have enough,
and they are shepherds that cannot understand;
they all look to their own way, every one for his gain,
from his quarter.

{ heart }   [IS] 56v12

 ‘Come, ye’, 

Say they,

 ‘I will fetch wine,
and we will fill ourselves with strong drink,
and tomorrow shall be as this day,
and much more abundant’.

» Isaiah 57

¶ Isaiah 57 v1-2

{ heart }   [IS] 57v1

The righteous perisheth,
and no man layeth it to heart;
and merciful men are taken away,
none considering that the righteous is taken away
from the evil to come.

{ heart }   [IS] 57v2

He shall enter into peace;
they shall rest in their beds,
each one walking in his uprightness.

¶ Isaiah 57 v3-13

{ heart }   [IS] 57v3

But draw near hither, ye sons of the sorceress,
the seed of the adulterer and the whore,

{ heart }   [IS] 57v4

Against whom do ye sport yourselves?
against whom make ye a wide mouth,
and draw out the tongue?
are ye not children of transgression,
a seed of falsehood,

{ heart }   [IS] 57v5

Enflaming yourselves with idols
under every green tree,
slaying the children in the valleys
under the clefts of the rocks?

{ heart }   [IS] 57v6

Among the smooth stones of the stream
is thy portion;
they, they are thy lot:
even to them hast thou poured a drink offering,
thou hast offered a meal offering.
Should I receive comfort in these?

{ heart }   [IS] 57v7

Upon a lofty and high mountain
hast thou set thy bed;
even thither wentest thou up to offer sacrifice.

{ heart }   [IS] 57v8

Behind the doors also and the doorposts
hast thou set up thy remembrance;
for thou hast discovered thyself to another than ME,
and art gone up;
thou hast enlarged thy bed,
and made thee a covenant with them;
thou lovedst their bed where thou sawest it.

{ heart }   [IS] 57v9

And thou wentest to the king with ointment,
and didst increase thy perfumes,
and didst send thy messengers far off,
and didst debase thyself even unto hell.

{ heart }   [IS] 57v10

Thou art wearied in the greatness of thy way;
yet saidst thou not,

 ‘There is no hope’: 

Thou hast found the life of thine hand;
therefore, thou wast not grieved.

{ heart }   [IS] 57v11

And of whom hast thou been afraid or feared,
that thou hast lied, and hast not remembered ME,
nor laid it to thy heart?
have not I held MY peace even of old,
and thou fearest ME not?

{ heart }   [IS] 57v12

I will declare thy righteousness; and thy works,
for they shall not profit thee.

{ heart }   [IS] 57v13

When thou criest, let thy companies deliver thee;
but the wind shall carry them all away,
vanity shall take them;
but he that putteth his trust in ME
shall possess the land,
and shall inherit MY holy mountain,

¶ Isaiah 57 v14-21

{ heart }   [IS] 57v14

And shall say,

 ‘Cast ye up, cast ye up, prepare the way,
take up the stumbling block
out of the way of MY people’.

{ heart }   [IS] 57v15

For thus saith the HIGH and lofty ONE
THAT inhabiteth eternity,
WHOSE NAME is

 ‘HOLY’; 

I dwell in the high and holy place:
with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit,
to revive the spirit of the humble,
and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

{ heart }   [IS] 57v16

For I will not contend forever,
neither will I be always wroth;
for the spirit should fail before ME,
and the souls which I have made.

{ heart }   [IS] 57v17

For the iniquity of his covetousness was I wroth,
and smote him:
I hid ME, and was angry,
and he went on perversely in the way of his heart.

{ heart }   [IS] 57v18

I have seen his ways, and will heal him;
I will lead him also,
and restore comforts unto him and to his mourners.

{ heart }   [IS] 57v19

I create the fruit of the lips;
peace, peace
to him that is far off, and to him that is near,


Saith the LORD;

And I will heal him.

{ heart }   [IS] 57v20

But the wicked are like the troubled sea,
when it cannot rest,
whose waters cast up mire and dirt.

There is no peace,

Saith my GOD,

To the wicked.

» Isaiah 58

¶ Isaiah 58 v1-12

{ heart }   [IS] 58v1

Cry aloud,
spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet,
and show MY people their transgression,
and the house of Jacob their sins.

{ heart }   [IS] 58v2

Yet they seek ME daily, and delight to know

 ‘MY ways’, 

As a nation that did righteousness,
and forsook not the ordinance of their GOD;
they ask of ME the ordinances of justice;
they take delight in approaching to GOD.

{ heart }   [IS] 58v3

 ‘Wherefore have we fasted’, 

Say they,

 ‘And THOU seest not?

Wherefore have we afflicted our soul

And THOU takest no knowledge?’ 

Behold,in the day of your fast
ye find pleasure, and exact all your labors.

{ heart }   [IS] 58v4

Behold, ye fast for strife and debate,
and to smite with the fist of wickedness;
ye shall not fast as ye do this day,
to make your voice to be heard on high.

{ heart }   [IS] 58v5

Is it such a fast that I have chosen?
a day for a man to afflict his soul?
Is it to bow down his head as a bulrush,
and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him?
wilt thou call this

 ‘A fast,
and an acceptable day to the LORD’?

{ heart }   [IS] 58v6

Is not this the fast that I have chosen?
to loose the bands of wickedness,
to undo the heavy burdens,
and to let the oppressed go free,
and that ye break every yoke?

{ heart }   [IS] 58v7

Is it not, to deal thy bread to the hungry,
and that thou bring the poor that are cast out
to thy house?
when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him;
and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?

{ heart }   [IS] 58v8

Then shall thy light break forth as the morning,
and thine health shall spring forth speedily;
and thy righteousness shall go before thee;
the glory of the LORD shall be thy rear guard.

{ heart }   [IS] 58v9

Then shalt thou call, and the LORD shall answer;
thou shalt cry, and HE shall say,

 ‘Here I AM’. 

If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke,
the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity;

{ heart }   [IS] 58v10

And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry,
and satisfy the afflicted soul,
then shall thy light rise in obscurity,
and thy darkness be as the noonday:

{ heart }   [IS] 58v11

And the LORD shall guide thee continually,
and satisfy thy soul in drought,
and make fat thy bones;
and thou shalt be like a watered garden,
and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.

{ heart }   [IS] 58v12

And they that shall be of thee
shall build the old waste places;
thou shalt raise up the foundations
of many generations,
and thou shalt be called,

 ‘The repairer of the breach,
The restorer of paths to dwell in’.

¶ Isaiah 58 v13-14

{ heart }   [IS] 58v13

If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath,
from doing thy pleasure on MY holy day;
and call the sabbath

 ‘A delight,
the holy of the LORD, honorable’, 

And shalt honor HIM,
not doing thine own ways,
nor finding thine own pleasure,
nor speaking thine own words;

{ heart }   [IS] 58v14

Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD;
and I will cause thee
to ride upon the high places of the earth,
and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob, thy father;


For the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

» Isaiah 59

¶ Isaiah 59 v1-21

{ heart }   [IS] 59v1

Behold, the LORD'S hand is not shortened,
that it cannot save;
neither HIS ear heavy, that it cannot hear.

{ heart }   [IS] 59v2

But your iniquities
have separated between you and your GOD,
and your sins have hid HIS face from you,
that HE will not hear.

{ heart }   [IS] 59v3

For your hands are defiled with blood,
and your fingers with iniquity;
your lips have spoken lies,
your tongue hath muttered perverseness.

{ heart }   [IS] 59v4

None calleth

 ‘For justice’, 

Nor any pleadeth

 ‘For truth’; 

They trust in vanity, and speak lies;
they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.

{ heart }   [IS] 59v5

They hatch cockatrice' eggs,
and weave the spider's web;
he that eateth of their eggs dieth,
and that which is crushed breaketh out into a viper.

{ heart }   [IS] 59v6

Their webs shall not become garments,
neither shall they cover themselves with their works;
their works are works of iniquity,
and the act of violence is in their hands.

{ heart }   [IS] 59v7

Their feet run to evil,
and they make haste to shed innocent blood;
their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity;
wasting and destruction are in their paths.

{ heart }   [IS] 59v8

 ‘The way of peace’ 

They know not;
and there is no judgment in their goings;
they have made them crooked paths;
whosoever goeth therein shall not know

 ‘Peace’.

{ heart }   [IS] 59v9

Therefore is judgment far from us,
neither doth justice overtake us:
we wait for light, but behold obscurity;
for brightness, but we walk in darkness.

{ heart }   [IS] 59v10

We grope for the wall like the blind,
and we grope as if we had no eyes;
we stumble at noonday as in the night;
we are in desolate places as dead men.

{ heart }   [IS] 59v11

We roar all like bears, and mourn sore like doves;
we look for judgment, but there is none;
for salvation, but it is far off from us.

{ heart }   [IS] 59v12

For our transgressions are multiplied before THEE,
and our sins testify against us;
for our transgressions are with us,
and as for

 ‘Our iniquities’, 

We know them,

{ heart }   [IS] 59v13

In transgressing and lying against the LORD,
and departing away from our GOD,
speaking oppression and revolt,
conceiving and uttering from the heart
words of falsehood.

{ heart }   [IS] 59v14

And judgment is turned away backward,
and justice standeth afar off;
for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.

{ heart }   [IS] 59v15

Yea, truth faileth;
and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey:
and the LORD saw it,
and it displeased HIM that there was no judgment.

{ heart }   [IS] 59v16

And HE saw that there was no man,
and wondered that there was no intercessor;
therefore, HIS arm brought salvation unto HIM;
and HIS righteousness it sustained HIM.

{ heart }   [IS] 59v17

For HE put on righteousness as a breastplate,
and an helmet of salvation upon HIS head;
and HE put on the garments of vengeance
for clothing,
and was clad with zeal as a cloak.

{ heart }   [IS] 59v18

According to their deeds,
accordingly HE will repay, fury to HIS adversaries,
recompence to HIS enemies;
to the islands HE will repay recompence.

{ heart }   [IS] 59v19

So shall they fear the NAME of the LORD
from the west,
and HIS glory from the rising of the sun:
when the enemy shall come in like a flood,
the SPIRIT of the LORD shall lift up a standard
against him.

{ heart }   [IS] 59v20

And the REDEEMER shall come to Zion,
and unto them that turn from transgression
in Jacob,


Saith the LORD.

{ heart }   [IS] 59v21

As for ME, this is MY covenant with them,

Saith the LORD:

MY SPIRIT that is upon thee,
and MY words which I have put in thy mouth,
shall not depart out of thy mouth,
nor out of the mouth of thy seed,
nor out of the mouth of thy seed's seed,


Saith the LORD,

From henceforth and forever.

All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together
unto thee,

they shall come up with acceptance on MINE altar,
and I will glorify the house of MY glory.

Who are these that fly as a cloud,
and as the doves to their windows?

{ heart }   [IS] 60v9

Surely the isles shall wait for ME,
and the ships of Tarshish
first, to bring thy sons from far,
their silver and their gold with them,
unto the NAME of the LORD, thy GOD,
and to the HOLY ONE of Israel,
because HE hath glorified thee.

{ heart }   [IS] 60v10

And the sons of foreigners shall build up thy walls,
and their kings shall minister unto thee;
for in MY wrath I smote thee,
but in MY favor have I had mercy on thee.

{ heart }   [IS] 60v11

Therefore, thy gates shall be open continually;
they shall not be shut day nor night,
that men may bring unto thee
the forces of the Gentiles,
and that their kings may be brought.

The glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee,
the fir tree, the pine tree, and the box together,
to beautify the place of MY sanctuary;
and I will make the place of MY feet glorious.

{ heart }   [IS] 60v14

The sons also of them that afflicted thee
shall come bending unto thee:
and all they that despised thee
shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet;
and they shall call thee,

 ‘The city of the LORD,
The Zion of the HOLY ONE of Israel’.

Whereas thou hast been forsaken and hated,
so that no man went through thee,
I will make thee an eternal excellency,
a joy of many generations.

Thou shalt also suck the milk of the Gentiles,
and shalt suck the breast of kings;
and thou shalt know

AM thy SAVIOR and thy REDEEMER,
the MIGHTY ONE of Jacob’.

For bronze I will bring gold,

I will also make thy officers peace,

 ‘Sought out, a city not forsaken’.

» Isaiah 63

¶ Isaiah 63 v1-6

{ heart }   [IS] 63v1

WHO is THIS that cometh from Edom,
with dyed garments from Bozrah?
this that is glorious in HIS apparel,
traveling in the greatness of HIS strength?


I THAT speak in righteousness,
mighty to save.

{ heart }   [IS] 63v2

Wherefore art THOU red in THINE apparel,
and THY garments like him that tread in the winefat?

{ heart }   [IS] 63v3

I have trodden the winepress alone,
and of the peoples there was none with ME;
for I will tread them in MINE anger,
and trample them in MY fury;
and their blood
shall be sprinkled upon MY garments,
and I will stain all MY raiment.

{ heart }   [IS] 63v4

For the day of vengeance is in MINE heart,
and the year of MY redeemed is come.

{ heart }   [IS] 63v5

And I looked, and there was none to help;
and I wondered that there was none to uphold:
therefore MINE OWN arm brought salvation
unto ME;
and MY fury, it upheld ME.

{ heart }   [IS] 63v6

And I will tread down the peoples in MINE anger,
and make them drunk in MY fury,
and I will bring down their strength to the earth.

¶ Isaiah 63 v7-19

{ heart }   [IS] 63v7

I will mention the loving-kindnesses of the LORD,
and the praises of the LORD,
according to all that the LORD hath bestowed on us,
and the great goodness toward the house of Israel,
which HE hath bestowed on them
according to HIS mercies,
and according to the multitude
of HIS loving-kindnesses.

{ heart }   [IS] 63v8

For HE said,

Surely they are MY people,
children that will not lie;


So HE was their SAVIOR.

{ heart }   [IS] 63v9

In all their affliction HE was afflicted,
and the Angel of HIS presence saved them;
in HIS love and in HIS pity HE redeemed them;
and HE bare them, and carried them
all the days of old.

{ heart }   [IS] 63v10

But they rebelled, and vexed HIS HOLY SPIRIT;
therefore, HE was turned to be their enemy,
and HE fought against them.

{ heart }   [IS] 63v11

Then he remembered the days of old,
Moses, and his people,
saying,

 ‘Where is HE THAT brought them up out of the sea
with the shepherd of HIS flock?
where is HE THAT put HIS HOLY SPIRIT
within him?

{ heart }   [IS] 63v12

THAT led them by the right hand of Moses
with HIS glorious arm,
dividing the water before them,
to make HIMSELF an everlasting NAME?

{ heart }   [IS] 63v13

THAT led them through the deep,
as an horse in the wilderness,
that they should not stumble?

{ heart }   [IS] 63v14

As a beast goeth down into the valley,
the SPIRIT of the LORD caused him to rest;
so didst THOU lead THY people,
to make THYSELF a glorious NAME.

{ heart }   [IS] 63v15

Look down from heaven, and behold
from the habitation of THY holiness and of THY glory:
where is THY zeal and THY strength,
the sounding of THY bowels and of THY mercies
toward me?
are they restrained?

{ heart }   [IS] 63v16

Doubtless THOU art our FATHER,
though Abraham be ignorant of us,
and Israel acknowledge us not;
THOU, O LORD, art our FATHER,
our REDEEMER;
THY NAME is from everlasting.

{ heart }   [IS] 63v17

O LORD,
why hast THOU made us to err from THY ways,
and hardened our heart from THY fear?
Return for THY servants' sake,
the tribes of THINE inheritance.

{ heart }   [IS] 63v18

The people of THY holiness
have possessed it but a little while;
our adversaries have trodden down THY sanctuary.

{ heart }   [IS] 63v19

We are THINE;
THOU never barest rule over them;
they were not called by THY NAME.

» Isaiah 64

¶ Isaiah 64 v1-12

{ heart }   [IS] 64v1

Oh, that THOU wouldest rend the heavens,
that THOU wouldest come down,
that the mountains might flow down at THY presence,

{ heart }   [IS] 64v2

As when the melting fire burneth,
and the fire causeth the waters to boil,
to make THY NAME known to THINE adversaries,
that the nations may tremble at THY presence.

{ heart }   [IS] 64v3

When THOU didst terrible things
which we looked not for,
THOU camest down,
the mountains flowed down at THY presence.

{ heart }   [IS] 64v4

For since the beginning of the world
men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear,
neither hath the eye seen, O GOD,
beside THEE,
what HE hath prepared for him that waiteth for HIM.

{ heart }   [IS] 64v5

THOU meetest him
that rejoiceth and worketh righteousness,
those that remember THEE in THY ways:
behold, THOU art wroth, for we have sinned:
in those is continuance, and we shall be saved.

{ heart }   [IS] 64v6

But we are all as an unclean thing,
and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags;
and we all do fade as a leaf,
and our iniquities, like the wind,
have taken us away.

{ heart }   [IS] 64v7

And there is none that calleth

 ‘Upon THY NAME’, 

That stirreth up himself to take hold of THEE;
for THOU hast hid THY face from us,
and hast consumed us, because of our iniquities.

{ heart }   [IS] 64v8

But now, O LORD, THOU art our FATHER;
we are the clay, and THOU our potter;
and we all are the work of THY hand.

{ heart }   [IS] 64v9

Be not wroth very sore, O LORD,
neither remember iniquity forever;
behold, see, we beseech THEE,
we are all THY people.

{ heart }   [IS] 64v10

THY holy cities are a wilderness,
Zion is a wilderness, Jerusalem a desolation.

{ heart }   [IS] 64v11

Our holy and our beautiful house,
where our fathers praised THEE,
is burnt up with fire,
and all our pleasant things are laid waste.

{ heart }   [IS] 64v12

Wilt THOU
refrain THYSELF for these things, O LORD?
wilt THOU
hold THY peace, and afflict us very sore?

» Isaiah 65

¶ Isaiah 65 v1-7

{ heart }   [IS] 65v1

I AM sought of them that asked not

 ‘For ME’; 

I AM found of them that sought ME not:
I said,

 ‘Behold ME, behold ME’, 

Unto a nation that was not called by MY NAME.

{ heart }   [IS] 65v2

I have spread out MY hands all the day
unto a rebellious people,
that walketh in a way that was not good,
after their own thoughts;

{ heart }   [IS] 65v3

A people that provoketh ME to anger
continually to MY face;
that sacrificeth in gardens,
and burneth incense upon altars of brick;

{ heart }   [IS] 65v4

That remain among the graves,
and lodge in the monuments,
that eat swine's flesh,
and broth of abominable things is in their vessels;

{ heart }   [IS] 65v5

That say,

 ‘Stand by thyself, come not near to me;
for I am holier than thou’. 

These are a smoke in MY nose,
a fire that burneth all the day.

{ heart }   [IS] 65v6

Behold, it is written before ME;
I will not keep silence, but will recompense,
even recompense into their bosom,

{ heart }   [IS] 65v7

Your iniquities,
and the iniquities of your fathers together,


(Saith the LORD)

Which have burnt incense upon the mountains,
and blasphemed ME upon the hills;
therefore will I measure their former work
into their bosom.

¶ Isaiah 65 v8-25

{ heart }   [IS] 65v8

Thus saith the LORD,

 ‘As the new wine is found in the cluster,
and one saith,

Destroy it not, for a blessing is in it:

So will I do for MY servants' sakes,
that I may not destroy them all’.

{ heart }   [IS] 65v9

And I will bring forth a seed out of Jacob,
and out of Judah an inheritor of MY mountains;
and MINE elect shall inherit it,
and MY servants shall dwell there.

{ heart }   [IS] 65v10

And Sharon shall be a fold of flocks,
and the valley of Achor
a place for the herds to lie down in,
for MY people that have sought ME.

{ heart }   [IS] 65v11

But ye are they that forsake the LORD,
that forget MY holy mountain,
that prepare a table for that troop,
and that furnish the drink offering unto that number.

{ heart }   [IS] 65v12

Therefore will I number you to the sword,
and ye shall all bow down to the slaughter;
because when I called, ye did not answer;
when I spake, ye did not hear;
but did evil before MINE eyes,
and did choose that wherein I delighted not.

{ heart }   [IS] 65v13

Therefore, thus saith the LORD GOD:

 ‘Behold, MY servants shall eat,
but ye shall be hungry;
behold, MY servants shall drink,
but ye shall be thirsty;
behold, MY servants shall rejoice,
but ye shall be ashamed’;

{ heart }   [IS] 65v14

Behold, MY servants shall sing for joy of heart,
but ye shall cry for sorrow of heart,
and shall howl for vexation of spirit.

{ heart }   [IS] 65v15

And ye shall leave your name for a curse
unto MY chosen;
for the LORD GOD shall slay thee,
and call HIS servants by another name,

{ heart }   [IS] 65v16

That he who blesseth himself in the earth
shall bless himself in the GOD of truth,
and he that sweareth in the earth
shall swear by the GOD of truth,
because the former troubles are forgotten,
and because they are hidden from MINE eyes.

{ heart }   [IS] 65v17

For, behold,
I create new heavens and a new earth,
and the former shall not be remembered,
nor come into mind.

{ heart }   [IS] 65v18

But be ye glad and rejoice forever
in that which I create;
for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing,
and her people a joy.

{ heart }   [IS] 65v19

And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in MY people;
and the voice of weeping
shall be no more heard in her,
nor the voice of crying.

{ heart }   [IS] 65v20

There shall be no more thence an infant of days,
nor an old man that hath not filled his days;
for the child shall die an hundred years old;
but the sinner, being an hundred years old,
shall be accursed.

{ heart }   [IS] 65v21

And they shall build houses,
and inhabit them;
and they shall plant vineyards,
and eat the fruit of them.

{ heart }   [IS] 65v22

They shall not build, and another inhabit;
they shall not plant, and another eat;
for as the days of a tree are the days of MY people,
and MINE elect
shall long enjoy the work of their hands.

{ heart }   [IS] 65v23

They shall not labor in vain,
nor bring forth for trouble;
for they are the seed of the blessed of the LORD,
and their offspring with them.

{ heart }   [IS] 65v24

And it shall come to pass
that, before they call, I will answer;
and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.

{ heart }   [IS] 65v25

The wolf and the lamb shall feed together,
and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock;
and dust shall be the serpent's meat.
They shall not hurt nor destroy
in all MY holy mountain,


Saith the LORD.

» Isaiah 66

¶ Isaiah 66 v1-4

{ heart }   [IS] 66v1

Thus saith the LORD:

The heaven is MY throne,
and the earth is MY footstool:
where is the house that ye build unto ME?
and where is the place of MY rest?

{ heart }   [IS] 66v2

For all those things hath MINE hand made,
and all those things have been,


Saith the LORD;

But to this man will I look,
even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit,
and trembleth at MY word.

{ heart }   [IS] 66v3

He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man:
he that sacrificeth a lamb,
as if he cut off a dog's neck:
he that offereth an oblation,
as if he offered swine's blood:
he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol:
yea, they have chosen their own ways,
and their soul delighteth in their abominations.

{ heart }   [IS] 66v4

I also will choose their delusions,
and will bring their fears upon them,
because when I called, none did answer;
when I spake, they did not hear;
but they did evil before MINE eyes,
and chose that in which I delighted not.

¶ Isaiah 66 v5-6

{ heart }   [IS] 66v5

Hear the word of the LORD,
ye that tremble at HIS word:


Your brethren that hated you,
that cast you out for MY NAME'S sake,
said,

 ‘Let the LORD be glorified’; 

But HE shall appear to your joy,
and they shall be ashamed.

{ heart }   [IS] 66v6

A voice of noise from the city,
a voice from the temple,
a voice of the LORD,
THAT rendereth recompence to HIS enemies.

¶ Isaiah 66 v7-9

{ heart }   [IS] 66v7

Before she travailed, she brought forth;
before her pain came,
she was delivered of a man child.

{ heart }   [IS] 66v8

Who hath heard such a thing?
who hath seen such things?
shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day?
or shall a nation be born at once?
for as soon as Zion travailed,
she brought forth her children.

{ heart }   [IS] 66v9

Shall I bring to the birth,
and not cause to bring forth?


Saith the LORD.

Shall I cause to bring forth, and shut the womb?

Saith thy GOD.

¶ Isaiah 66 v10-11

{ heart }   [IS] 66v10

Rejoice ye with Jerusalem,
and be glad with her, all ye that love her;
rejoice for joy with her, all ye that mourn for her,

{ heart }   [IS] 66v11

That ye may suck, and be satisfied
with the breasts of her consolations;
that ye may milk out, and be delighted
with the abundance of her glory.

¶ Isaiah 66 v12-17

{ heart }   [IS] 66v12

For thus saith the LORD:
Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river,
and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream;
then shall ye be suck,
ye shall be borne upon her sides,
and be dandled upon her knees.

{ heart }   [IS] 66v13

As one whom his mother comforteth,
so will I comfort you,
and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem.

{ heart }   [IS] 66v14

And when ye see this, your heart shall rejoice,
and your bones shall flourish like an herb;
and the hand of the LORD shall be known
toward HIS servants,
and HIS indignation toward HIS enemies.

{ heart }   [IS] 66v15

For, behold, the LORD will come with fire,
and with HIS chariots like a whirlwind,
to render HIS anger with fury,
and HIS rebuke with flames of fire.

{ heart }   [IS] 66v16

For by fire and by HIS sword
will the LORD plead with all flesh;
and the slain of the LORD shall be many.

{ heart }   [IS] 66v17

They that sanctify themselves,
and purify themselves in the gardens
behind one tree in the midst,
eating swine's flesh,
and the abomination, and the mouse,
shall be consumed together,


Saith the LORD.

¶ Isaiah 66 v18-21

{ heart }   [IS] 66v18

For I know

 ‘Their works and their thoughts’; 

It shall come,
that I will gather all nations and tongues;
and they shall come, and see MY glory.

{ heart }   [IS] 66v19

And I will set a sign among them,
and I will send those that escape of them
unto the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud,
that draw the bow,
to Tubal, and Javan, to the coasts isles afar off,
that have not heard MY fame,
neither have seen MY glory;
and they shall declare MY glory
among the Gentiles.

{ heart }   [IS] 66v20

And they shall bring all your brethren
for an offering unto the LORD
out of all nations
upon horses, and in chariots,
and in litters, and upon mules,
and upon swift beasts,
to MY holy mountain, Jerusalem,


Saith the LORD,

As the children of Israel
bring an offering in a clean vessel
into the house of the LORD.

{ heart }   [IS] 66v21

And I will also take of them
for priests and for Levites,


Saith the LORD.

¶ Isaiah 66 v22

{ heart }   [IS] 66v22

For as the new heavens and the new earth,
which I will make, shall remain before ME,


Saith the LORD,

So shall your seed and your name remain.

¶ Isaiah 66 v23-24

{ heart }   [IS] 66v23

And it shall come to pass
that from one new moon to another,
and from one sabbath to another,
shall all flesh come to worship before ME,


Saith the LORD.

{ heart }   [IS] 66v24

And they shall go forth,
and look upon the carcasses of the men
that have transgressed against ME;
for their worm shall not die,
neither shall their fire be quenched;
and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.
