Israel Encouraged

41"Coastlands, listen to Me in silence, And let the peoples gain new strength; Let them come forward, then let them speak; Let us come together for judgment.H2790H339H3816H2498H3581H5066H1696H7126H3162H4941 2"Who has aroused one from the east Whom He calls in righteousness to His feet? He delivers up nations before him, And subdues kings. He makes them like dust with his sword, As the wind-driven chaff with his bow.H5782H6664H4217H7121H7272H5414H1471H6440H7287H4428H5414H6083H2719H5086H7179H7198 3"He pursues them, passing on in safety, By a way he had not been traversing with his feet.H7291H5674H7965H734H935H7272 4"Who has performed and accomplished [it,] Calling forth the generations from the beginning? 'I, the LORD, am the first, and with the last. I am He.'"H6466H6213H7121H1755H7218H3068H7223H314 5The coastlands have seen and are afraid; The ends of the earth tremble; They have drawn near and have come.H339H7200H3372H7098H776H2729H7126H857 6Each one helps his neighbor, And says to his brother, "Be strong!"H5826H376H7453H559H251H2388 7So the craftsman encourages the smelter, [And] he who smooths [metal] with the hammer [encourages] him who beats the anvil, Saying of the soldering, "It is good"; And he fastens it with nails, [That] it should not totter.H2796H2388H6884H2505H6360H1986H6471H559H2896H1694H2388H4548H4131 8"But you, Israel, My servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, Descendant of Abraham My friend,H3478H5650H3290H977H2233H85H157 9You whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, And called from its remotest parts, And said to you, 'You are My servant, I have chosen you and not rejected you.H2388H7098H776H7121H678H559H5650H977H3988 10'Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.'H3372H8159H430H553H5826H8551H3225H6664 11"Behold, all those who are angered at you will be shamed and dishonored; Those who contend with you will be as nothing, and will perish.H2734H954H3637H582H7379H6 12"You will seek those who quarrel with you, but will not find them, Those who war with you will be as nothing, and non-existent.H1245H4672H582H4695H4421H657 13"For I am the LORD your God, who upholds your right hand, Who says to you, 'Do not fear, I will help you.'H3068H430H2388H3225H559H3372H5826 14"Do not fear, you worm Jacob, you men of Israel; I will help you," declares the LORD," and your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel.H3372H8438H3290H4962H3478H5826H5002H3068H1350H6918H3478 15"Behold, I have made you a new, sharp threshing sledge with double edges; You will thresh the mountains, and pulverize [them,] And will make the hills like chaff.H7760H2319H2742H4173H1167H6374H1758H2022H1854H7760H1389H4671 16"You will winnow them, and the wind will carry them away, And the storm will scatter them; But you will rejoice in the LORD, You will glory in the Holy One of Israel.H2219H7307H5375H5591H6327H1523H3068H1984H6918H3478 17"The afflicted and needy are seeking water, but there is none, And their tongue is parched with thirst; I, the LORD, will answer them Myself, [As] the God of Israel I will not forsake them.H6041H34H1245H4325H3956H5405H6772H3068H6030H430H3478H5800 18"I will open rivers on the bare heights, And springs in the midst of the valleys; I will make the wilderness a pool of water, And the dry land fountains of water.H6605H5104H8205H4599H8432H1237H7760H4057H98H4325H6723H776H4161H4325 19"I will put the cedar in the wilderness, The acacia, and the myrtle, and the olive tree; I will place the juniper in the desert, Together with the box tree and the cypress,H5414H4057H730H7848H1918H8081H6086H7760H6160H1265H8410H8391H3162 20That they may see and recognize, And consider and gain insight as well, That the hand of the LORD has done this, And the Holy One of Israel has created it.H7200H3045H7760H7919H3162H3027H3068H6213H6918H3478H1254 21"Present your case," the LORD says. "Bring forward your strong [arguments,]" The King of Jacob says.H7126H7379H559H3068H5066H6110H559H4428H3290 22Let them bring forth and declare to us what is going to take place; As for the former [events,] declare what they [were,] That we may consider them, and know their outcome; Or announce to us what is coming.H5066H5046H7136H5046H7223H7760H3820H3045H319H8085H935 23Declare the things that are going to come afterward, That we may know that you are gods; Indeed, do good or evil, that we may anxiously look about us and fear together.H5046H857H268H3045H430H3190H7489H8159H7200H3162 24Behold, you are of no account, And your work amounts to nothing; He who chooses you is an abomination.H369H6467H659H8441H977 25"I have aroused one from the north, and he has come; From the rising of the sun he will call on My name; And he will come upon rulers as [ upon] mortar, Even as the potter treads clay."H5782H6828H857H4217H8121H7121H8034H935H5461H2563H3335H7429H2916 26Who has declared [this] from the beginning, that we might know? Or from former times, that we may say, "[He is] right!"? Surely there was no one who declared, Surely there was no one who proclaimed, Surely there was no one who heard your words.H5046H7218H3045H6440H559H6662H5046H8085H8085H561 27"Formerly [I said] to Zion, 'Behold, here they are.' And to Jerusalem, 'I will give a messenger of good news.'H7223H6726H2009H2009H5414H3389H1319 28"But when I look, there is no one, And there is no counselor among them Who, if I ask, can give an answer.H7200H376H3289H7592H7725H1697 29"Behold, all of them are false; Their works are worthless, Their molten images are wind and emptiness.H205H4639H657H5262H7307H8414
