New International Version (1984)

Stubborn Israel

48"Listen to this, O house of Jacob, you who are called by the name of Israel and come from the line of Judah, you who take oaths in the name of the LORD and invoke the God of Israel--but not in truth or righteousness--H8085H1004H3290H7121H8034H3478H3318H4325H3063H7650H8034H3068H2142H430H3478H571H6666 2you who call yourselves citizens of the holy city and rely on the God of Israel--the LORD Almighty is his name:H7121H6944H5892H5564H430H3478H3068H6635H8034 3I foretold the former things long ago, my mouth announced them and I made them known; then suddenly I acted, and they came to pass.H5046H7223H227H3318H6310H8085H6213H6597H935 4For I knew how stubborn you were; the sinews of your neck were iron, your forehead was bronze.H1847H7186H6203H1270H1517H4696H5154 5Therefore I told you these things long ago; before they happened I announced them to you so that you could not say, 'My idols did them; my wooden image and metal god ordained them.'H227H5046H935H8085H559H6090H6213H6459H5262H6680 6You have heard these things; look at them all. Will you not admit them? "From now on I will tell you of new things, of hidden things unknown to you.H8085H2372H5046H8085H2319H6258H5341H3045 7They are created now, and not long ago; you have not heard of them before today. So you cannot say, 'Yes, I knew of them.'H1254H6440H3117H8085H559H3045 8You have neither heard nor understood; from of old your ear has not been open. Well do I know how treacherous you are; you were called a rebel from birth.H8085H3045H241H6605H3045H898H898H7121H6586H990 9For my own name's sake I delay my wrath; for the sake of my praise I hold it back from you, so as not to cut you off.H8034H748H639H8416H2413H3772 10See, I have refined you, though not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction.H6884H3701H977H3564H6040 11For my own sake, for my own sake, I do this. How can I let myself be defamed? I will not yield my glory to another.H6213H2490H5414H3519H312

Israel Freed

12"Listen to me, O Jacob, Israel, whom I have called: I am he; I am the first and I am the last.H8085H3290H3478H7121H7223H314 13My own hand laid the foundations of the earth, and my right hand spread out the heavens; when I summon them, they all stand up together.H3027H3245H776H3225H2946H8064H7121H5975H3162 14"Come together, all of you, and listen: Which of the idols has foretold these things? The LORD'S chosen ally will carry out his purpose against Babylon; his arm will be against the Babylonians.H6908H8085H5046H3068H157H6213H2656H894H2220H3778 15I, even I, have spoken; yes, I have called him. I will bring him, and he will succeed in his mission.H1696H7121H935H1870H6743 16"Come near me and listen to this: "From the first announcement I have not spoken in secret; at the time it happens, I am there." And now the Sovereign LORD has sent me, with his Spirit.H7126H7126H8085H1696H5643H7218H6256H136H3069H7307H7971 17This is what the LORD says--your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: "I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.H559H3068H1350H6918H3478H3068H430H3925H3276H1869H1870H3212 18If only you had paid attention to my commands, your peace would have been like a river, your righteousness like the waves of the sea.H3863H7181H4687H7965H5104H6666H1530H3220 19Your descendants would have been like the sand, your children like its numberless grains; their name would never be cut off nor destroyed from before me."H2233H2344H6631H4578H4579H8034H3772H8045H6440 20Leave Babylon, flee from the Babylonians! Announce this with shouts of joy and proclaim it. Send it out to the ends of the earth; say, "The LORD has redeemed his servant Jacob."H3318H894H1272H3778H6963H7440H5046H8085H3318H7097H776H559H3068H1350H5650H3290 21They did not thirst when he led them through the deserts; he made water flow for them from the rock; he split the rock and water gushed out.H6770H3212H2723H4325H5140H6697H1234H6697H4325H2100 22"There is no peace," says the LORD, "for the wicked."H7965H559H3068H7563
