Isaiah 40
King James Version (with Strongs Data)
40ComfortH5162 ye, comfortH5162 ye my peopleH5971, saithH559 your GodH430. 2SpeakH1696 ye comfortablyH3820 to JerusalemH3389, and cryH7121 unto her, that her warfareH6635 is accomplishedH4390, that her iniquityH5771 is pardonedH7521: for she hath receivedH3947 of the LORD'SH3068 handH3027 doubleH3718 for all her sinsH2403. 3The voiceH6963 of him that criethH7121 in the wildernessH4057, PrepareH6437 ye the wayH1870 of the LORDH3068, make straightH3474 in the desertH6160 a highwayH4546 for our GodH430. 4Every valleyH1516 shall be exaltedH5375, and every mountainH2022 and hillH1389 shall be made lowH8213: and the crookedH6121 shall be made straightH4334, and the rough placesH7406 plainH1237: 5And the gloryH3519 of the LORDH3068 shall be revealedH1540, and all fleshH1320 shall seeH7200 it togetherH3162: for the mouthH6310 of the LORDH3068 hath spokenH1696 it. 6The voiceH6963 saidH559, CryH7121. And he saidH559, What shall I cryH7121? All fleshH1320 is grassH2682, and all the goodlinessH2617 thereof is as the flowerH6731 of the fieldH7704: 7The grassH2682 witherethH3001, the flowerH6731 fadethH5034: because the spiritH7307 of the LORDH3068 blowethH5380 upon it: surelyH403 the peopleH5971 is grassH2682. 8The grassH2682 witherethH3001, the flowerH6731 fadethH5034: but the wordH1697 of our GodH430 shall standH6965 for everH5769. 9O ZionH6726, that bringest good tidingsH1319, get thee upH5927 into the highH1364 mountainH2022; O JerusalemH3389, that bringest good tidingsH1319, lift upH7311 thy voiceH6963 with strengthH3581; lift it upH7311, be not afraidH3372; sayH559 unto the citiesH5892 of JudahH3063, Behold your GodH430! 10Behold, the LordH136 GODH3069 will comeH935 with strongH2389 hand, and his armH2220 shall ruleH4910 for him: behold, his rewardH7939 is with him, and his workH6468 beforeH6440 him. 11He shall feedH7462 his flockH5739 like a shepherdH7462: he shall gatherH6908 the lambsH2922 with his armH2220, and carryH5375 them in his bosomH2436, and shall gently leadH5095 those that are with youngH5763. 12Who hath measuredH4058 the watersH4325 in the hollow of his handH8168, and meted outH8505 heavenH8064 with the spanH2239, and comprehendedH3557 the dustH6083 of the earthH776 in a measureH7991, and weighedH8254 the mountainsH2022 in scalesH6425, and the hillsH1389 in a balanceH3976? 13Who hath directedH8505 the SpiritH7307 of the LORDH3068, or being his counsellorH376H6098 hath taughtH3045 him? 14With whom took he counselH3289, and who instructedH995 him, and taughtH3925 him in the pathH734 of judgmentH4941, and taughtH3925 him knowledgeH1847, and shewedH3045 to him the wayH1870 of understandingH8394? 15Behold, the nationsH1471 are as a dropH4752 of a bucketH1805, and are countedH2803 as the small dustH7834 of the balanceH3976: behold, he taketh upH5190 the islesH339 as a very little thingH1851. 16And LebanonH3844 is notH369 sufficientH1767 to burnH1197, nor the beastsH2416 thereof sufficientH1767 for a burnt offeringH5930. 17All nationsH1471 before him are as nothing; and they are countedH2803 to him less than nothingH657, and vanityH8414. 18To whom then will ye likenH1819 GodH410? or what likenessH1823 will ye compareH6186 unto him? 19The workmanH2796 meltethH5258 a graven imageH6459, and the goldsmithH6884 spreadethH7554 it over with goldH2091, and castethH6884 silverH3701 chainsH7577. 20He that is so impoverishedH5533H5534 that he hath no oblationH8641 choosethH977 a treeH6086 that will not rotH7537; he seekethH1245 unto him a cunningH2450 workmanH2796 to prepareH3559 a graven imageH6459, that shall not be movedH4131. 21Have ye not knownH3045? have ye not heardH8085? hath it not been toldH5046 you from the beginningH7218? have ye not understoodH995 from the foundationsH4146 of the earthH776? 22It is he that sittethH3427 upon the circleH2329 of the earthH776, and the inhabitantsH3427 thereof are as grasshoppersH2284; that stretcheth outH5186 the heavensH8064 as a curtainH1852, and spreadeth them outH4969 as a tentH168 to dwell inH3427: 23That bringethH5414 the princesH7336 to nothing; he makethH6213 the judgesH8199 of the earthH776 as vanityH8414. 24Yea, they shall not be plantedH5193; yea, they shall not be sownH2232: yea, their stockH1503 shall not take rootH8327 in the earthH776: and he shall also blowH5398 upon them, and they shall witherH3001, and the whirlwindH5591 shall takeH5375 them away as stubbleH7179. 25To whom then will ye likenH1819 me, or shall I be equalH7737? saithH559 the Holy OneH6918. 26Lift upH5375 your eyesH5869 on highH4791, and beholdH7200 who hath createdH1254 these things, that bringeth outH3318 their hostH6635 by numberH4557: he callethH7121 them all by namesH8034 by the greatnessH7230 of his mightH202, for that he is strongH533 in powerH3581; not oneH376 failethH5737. 27Why sayestH559 thou, O JacobH3290, and speakestH1696, O IsraelH3478, My wayH1870 is hidH5641 from the LORDH3068, and my judgmentH4941 is passed overH5674 from my GodH430? 28Hast thou not knownH3045? hast thou not heardH8085, that the everlastingH5769 GodH430, the LORDH3068, the CreatorH1254 of the endsH7098 of the earthH776, faintethH3286 not, neither is wearyH3021? there is no searchingH2714 of his understandingH8394. 29He givethH5414 powerH3581 to the faintH3287; and to them that have no mightH202 he increasethH7235 strengthH6109. 30Even the youthsH5288 shall faintH3286 and be wearyH3021, and the young menH970 shall utterlyH3782 fallH3782: 31But they that waitH6960 upon the LORDH3068 shall renewH2498 their strengthH3581; they shall mount upH5927 with wingsH83 as eaglesH5404; they shall runH7323, and not be wearyH3021; and they shall walkH3212, and not faintH3286.
