Isaiah 51
New Living Translation
51“Listen to me, all who hope for deliverance—all who seek the Lord! Consider the rock from which you were cut, the quarry from which you were mined.H8085H7291H6664H1245H3068H5027H6697H2672H4718H953H5365 2Yes, think about Abraham, your ancestor, and Sarah, who gave birth to your nation. Abraham was only one man when I called him. But when I blessed him, he became a great nation.”H5027H85H1H8283H2342H7121H259H1288H7235 3The Lord will comfort Israel again and have pity on her ruins. Her desert will blossom like Eden, her barren wilderness like the garden of the Lord. Joy and gladness will be found there. Songs of thanksgiving will fill the air.H3068H5162H6726H5162H2723H7760H4057H5731H6160H1588H3068H8342H8057H4672H8426H6963H2172 4“Listen to me, my people. Hear me, Israel, for my law will be proclaimed, and my justice will become a light to the nations.H7181H5971H238H3816H8451H3318H4941H7280H216H5971 5My mercy and justice are coming soon. My salvation is on the way. My strong arm will bring justice to the nations. All distant lands will look to me and wait in hope for my powerful arm.H6664H7138H3468H3318H2220H8199H5971H339H6960H2220H3176 6Look up to the skies above, and gaze down on the earth below. For the skies will disappear like smoke, and the earth will wear out like a piece of clothing. The people of the earth will die like flies, but my salvation lasts forever. My righteous rule will never end!H5375H5869H8064H5027H776H8064H4414H6227H776H1086H899H3427H4191H3644H3654H3444H5769H6666H2865 7“Listen to me, you who know right from wrong you who cherish my law in your hearts. Do not be afraid of people’s scorn, nor fear their insults.H8085H3045H6664H5971H3820H8451H3372H2781H582H2865H1421 8For the moth will devour them as it devours clothing. The worm will eat at them as it eats wool. But my righteousness will last forever. My salvation will continue from generation to generation.”H6211H398H899H5580H398H6785H6666H5769H3444H1755H1755 9Wake up, wake up, O Lord! Clothe yourself with strength! Flex your mighty right arm! Rouse yourself as in the days of old when you slew Egypt, the dragon of the Nile.H5782H5782H3847H5797H2220H3068H5782H6924H3117H1755H5769H2672H7294H2490H8577 10Are you not the same today, the one who dried up the sea, making a path of escape through the depths so that your people could cross over?H2717H3220H4325H7227H8415H7760H4615H3220H1870H1350H5674 11Those who have been ransomed by the Lord will return. They will enter Jerusalem singing, crowned with everlasting joy. Sorrow and mourning will disappear, and they will be filled with joy and gladness.H6299H3068H7725H935H7440H6726H5769H8057H7218H5381H8342H8057H3015H585H5127 12“I, yes I, am the one who comforts you. So why are you afraid of mere humans, who wither like the grass and disappear?H5162H3372H582H4191H1121H120H5414H2682 13Yet you have forgotten the Lord, your Creator, the one who stretched out the sky like a canopy and laid the foundations of the earth. Will you remain in constant dread of human oppressors? Will you continue to fear the anger of your enemies? Where is their fury and anger now? It is gone!H7911H3068H6213H5186H8064H3245H776H6342H8548H3117H6440H2534H6693H834H3559H7843H2534H6693 14Soon all you captives will be released! Imprisonment, starvation, and death will not be your fate!H6808H4116H6605H4191H7845H3899H2637 15For I am the Lord your God, who stirs up the sea, causing its waves to roar. My name is the Lord of Heaven’s Armies.H3068H430H7280H3220H1530H1993H3068H6635H8034 16And I have put my words in your mouth and hidden you safely in my hand. I stretched out the sky like a canopy and laid the foundations of the earth. I am the one who says to Israel, ‘You are my people!’”H7760H1697H6310H3680H6738H3027H5193H8064H3245H776H559H6726H5971 17Wake up, wake up, O Jerusalem! You have drunk the cup of the Lord’s fury. You have drunk the cup of terror, tipping out its last drops.H5782H5782H6965H3389H8354H3027H3068H3563H2534H8354H6907H3563H8653H4680 18Not one of your children is left alive to take your hand and guide you.H5095H1121H3205H2388H3027H1121H1431 19These two calamities have fallen on you. desolation and destruction, famine and war. And who is left to sympathize with you? Who is left to comfort you?H8147H7122H5110H7701H7667H7458H2719H5162 20For your children have fainted and lie in the streets, helpless as antelopes caught in a net. The Lord has poured out his fury; God has rebuked them.H1121H5968H7901H7218H2351H8377H4364H4392H2534H3068H1606H430 21But now listen to this, you afflicted ones who sit in a drunken stupor, though not from drinking wine.H8085H6041H7937H3196 22This is what the Sovereign Lord, your God and Defender, says. “See, I have taken the terrible cup from your hands. You will drink no more of my fury.H559H113H3068H430H7378H5971H3947H3027H3563H8653H6907H3563H2534H3254H8354 23Instead, I will hand that cup to your tormentors, those who said, ‘We will trample you into the dust and walk on your backs.’”H7760H3027H3013H559H5315H7812H5674H7760H1460H776H2351H5674
