Spiritual Blessing

44"And now listen, Jacob My servant, Israel whom I have chosen.H8085H3290H5650H3478H977 2This is the word of the LORD your Maker who shaped you from birth; He will help you: Do not fear; Jacob is My servant; I have chosen Jeshurun.H559H3068H6213H3335H990H5826H3372H3290H5650H3484H977 3For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out My Spirit on your descendants and My blessing on your offspring.H3332H4325H6771H5140H3004H3332H7307H2233H1293H6631 4They will sprout among the grass like poplars by the streambeds.H6779H996H2682H6155H4325H2988 5This one will say: I am the LORD's; another will call [himself] by the name of Jacob; still another will write on his hand: The LORD's, and name [himself] by the name of Israel."H559H3068H7121H8034H3290H3789H3027H3068H3655H8034H3478

No God Other Than Yahweh

6This is what the LORD, the King of Israel and its Redeemer, the LORD of Hosts, says: I am the first and I am the last. There is no God but Me.H559H3068H4428H3478H1350H3068H6635H7223H314H1107H430 7Who, like Me, can announce [the future]? Let him say so and make a case before Me, since I have established an ancient people. Let these gods declare the coming things, and what will take place.H7121H5046H6186H7760H5769H5971H857H935H5046 8Do not be startled or afraid. Have I not told you and declared it long ago? You are my witnesses! Is there any God but Me? There is no [other] Rock; I do not know any.H6342H7297H7297H8085H227H5046H5707H3426H433H1107H6697H3045 9All who make idols are nothing, and what they treasure does not profit. Their witnesses do not see or know [anything], so they will be put to shame.H3335H6459H8414H2530H3276H5707H7200H3045H954 10Who makes a god or casts a metal image for no profit?H3335H410H5258H6459H3276H1115 11Look, all its worshipers will be put to shame, and the craftsmen are humans. They all will assemble and stand; they all will be startled and put to shame.H2270H954H2796H120H6908H5975H6342H954H3162 12The ironworker labors over the coals, shapes the idol with hammers, and works it with his strong arm. Also he grows hungry and his strength fails; he doesn't drink water and is faint.H1270H2796H4621H6466H6352H3335H4717H6466H3581H2220H7457H3581H369H8354H4325H3286 13The woodworker stretches out a measuring line, he outlines it with a stylus; he shapes it with chisels and outlines it with a compass. He makes it according to a human likeness, like a beautiful person, to dwell in a temple.H2796H6086H5186H6957H8388H8279H6213H4741H8388H4230H6213H8403H376H8597H120H3427H1004 14He cuts down cedars for his use, or he takes a cypress or an oak. He lets it grow strong among the trees of the forest. He plants a laurel, and the rain makes it grow.H3772H730H3947H8645H437H553H6086H3293H5193H766H1653H1431 15It serves as fuel for man. He takes some of it and warms himself; also he kindles a fire and bakes bread; he even makes it into a god and worships it; he makes it an idol and bows down to it.H120H1197H3947H2552H5400H644H3899H6466H410H7812H6213H6459H5456 16He burns half of it in a fire, and he roasts meat on that half. He eats the roast and is satisfied. He warms himself and says, "Ah! I am warm, I see the blaze."H8313H2677H1119H784H2677H398H1320H6740H6748H7646H2552H559H1889H2552H7200H217 17He makes a god or his idol with the rest of it. He bows down to it and worships; He prays to it, "Save me, for you are my god."H7611H6213H410H6459H5456H7812H6419H559H5337H410 18Such people do not comprehend and cannot understand, for He has shut their eyes so they cannot see, and their minds so they cannot understand.H3045H995H2902H5869H7200H3826H7919 19No one reflects, no one has the perception or insight to say, "I burned half of it in the fire, I also baked bread on its coals, I roasted meat and ate. I will make something detestable with the rest of it, and I will bow down to a block of wood."H7725H3820H1847H8394H559H8313H2677H1119H784H644H3899H1513H6740H1320H398H6213H3499H8441H5456H944H6086 20He feeds on ashes. [His] deceived mind has led him astray, and he cannot deliver himself, or say, "Isn't there a lie in my right hand?"H7462H665H2048H3820H5186H5337H5315H559H8267H3225 21Remember these things, Jacob, and Israel, for you are My servant; I formed you, you are My servant; Israel, you will never be forgotten by Me.H2142H3290H3478H5650H3335H5650H3478H5382 22I have swept away your transgressions like a cloud, and your sins like a mist. Return to Me, for I have redeemed you.H4229H5645H6588H6051H2403H7725H1350 23Rejoice, heavens, for the LORD has acted; shout, depths of the earth. Break out into singing, mountains, forest, and every tree in it. For the LORD has redeemed Jacob, and glorifies Himself through Israel.H7442H8064H3068H6213H7321H8482H776H6476H7440H2022H3293H6086H3068H1350H3290H6286H3478

Restoration of Israel through Cyrus

24This is what the LORD, your Redeemer who formed you from the womb, says: I am the LORD, who made everything; who stretched out the heavens by Myself; who alone spread out the earth;H559H3068H1350H3335H990H3068H6213H5186H8064H7554H776 25who destroys the omens of the false prophets and makes fools of diviners; who confounds the wise and makes their knowledge foolishness;H6565H226H907H7080H1984H7725H2450H268H1847H5528 26who confirms the message of His servant and fulfills the counsel of His messengers; who says to Jerusalem: She will be inhabited, and to the cities of Judah: They will be rebuilt, and I will restore her ruins;H6965H1697H5650H7999H6098H4397H559H3389H3427H5892H3063H1129H6965H2723 27who says to the depths of the sea: Be dry, and I will dry up your rivers;H559H6683H2717H3001H5104 28who says to Cyrus: My shepherd, he will fulfill all My pleasure and say to Jerusalem: She will be rebuilt, and of the temple: Its foundation will be laid.H559H3566H7462H7999H2656H559H3389H1129H1964H3245
