Isaiah 65
New King James Version
65"I was sought by those who did not ask for Me; I was found by those who did not seek Me. I said, 'Here I am, here I am,' To a nation that was not called by My name.H1875H7592H3808H4672H1245H3808H559H1471H7121H8034 2I have stretched out My hands all day long to a rebellious people, Who walk in a way that is not good, According to their own thoughts;H6566H3027H3117H5637H5971H1980H1870H2896H310H4284 3A people who provoke Me to anger continually to My face; Who sacrifice in gardens, And burn incense on altars of brick;H5971H3707H8548H6440H2076H1593H6999H3843 4Who sit among the graves, And spend the night in the tombs; Who eat swine's flesh, And the broth of abominable things is in their vessels;H3427H6913H3885H5341H398H2386H1320H4839H6564H6292H3627 5Who say, 'Keep to yourself, Do not come near me, For I am holier than you!' These are smoke in My nostrils, A fire that burns all the day.H559H7126H5066H6942H6227H639H784H3344H3117 6"Behold, it is written before Me: I will not keep silence, but will repay—Even repay into their bosom—H3789H6440H2814H7999H7999H2436 7Your iniquities and the iniquities of your fathers together," Says the LORD, "Who have burned incense on the mountains And blasphemed Me on the hills; Therefore I will measure their former work into their bosom."H5771H5771H1H3162H559H3068H6999H2022H2778H1389H4058H7223H6468H2436 8Thus says the LORD: "As the new wine is found in the cluster, And one says, 'Do not destroy it, For a blessing is in it,' So will I do for My servants' sake, That I may not destroy them all.H559H3068H8492H4672H811H559H7843H1293H6213H5650H7843 9I will bring forth descendants from Jacob, And from Judah an heir of My mountains; My elect shall inherit it, And My servants shall dwell there.H3318H2233H3290H3063H3423H2022H972H3423H5650H7931 10Sharon shall be a fold of flocks, And the Valley of Achor a place for herds to lie down, For My people who have sought Me.H8289H5116H6629H6010H5911H1241H7258H5971H1875 11"But you are those who forsake the LORD, Who forget My holy mountain, Who prepare a table for Gad, And who furnish a drink offering for Meni.H5800H3068H7913H6944H2022H6186H7979H1409H1408H4390H4469H4507 12Therefore I will number you for the sword, And you shall all bow down to the slaughter; Because, when I called, you did not answer; When I spoke, you did not hear, But did evil before My eyes, And chose that in which I do not delight."H4487H2719H3766H2874H7121H6030H1696H8085H6213H7451H5869H977H2654 13Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: "Behold, My servants shall eat, But you shall be hungry; Behold, My servants shall drink, But you shall be thirsty; Behold, My servants shall rejoice, But you shall be ashamed;H559H136H3069H5650H398H7456H5650H8354H6770H5650H8055H954 14Behold, My servants shall sing for joy of heart, But you shall cry for sorrow of heart, And wail for grief of spirit.H5650H7442H2898H3820H6817H3511H3820H3213H7667H7307 15You shall leave your name as a curse to My chosen; For the Lord GOD will slay you, And call His servants by another name;H3240H8034H7621H972H136H3069H4191H7121H5650H312H8034 16So that he who blesses himself in the earth Shall bless himself in the God of truth; And he who swears in the earth Shall swear by the God of truth; Because the former troubles are forgotten, And because they are hidden from My eyes.H1288H776H1288H430H543H7650H776H7650H430H543H7223H6869H7911H5641H5869 17"For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; And the former shall not be remembered or come to mind.H1254H2319H8064H2319H776H7223H2142H5927H3820 18But be glad and rejoice forever in what I create; For behold, I create Jerusalem as a rejoicing, And her people a joy.H7797H1523H5703H1254H1254H3389H1525H5971H4885 19I will rejoice in Jerusalem, And joy in My people; The voice of weeping shall no longer be heard in her, Nor the voice of crying.H1523H3389H7797H5971H6963H1065H8085H6963H2201 20"No more shall an infant from there live but a few days, Nor an old man who has not fulfilled his days; For the child shall die one hundred years old, But the sinner being one hundred years old shall be accursed.H5764H3117H2205H4390H3117H5288H4191H3967H8141H1121H2398H3967H8141H1121H7043 21They shall build houses and inhabit them; They shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit.H1129H1004H3427H5193H3754H398H6529 22They shall not build and another inhabit; They shall not plant and another eat; For as the days of a tree, so shall be the days of My people, And My elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands.H1129H312H3427H5193H312H398H3117H6086H3117H5971H972H1086H4639H3027 23They shall not labor in vain, Nor bring forth children for trouble; For they shall be the descendants of the blessed of the LORD, And their offspring with them.H3021H7385H3205H928H2233H1288H3068H6631 24"It shall come to pass That before they call, I will answer; And while they are still speaking, I will hear.H7121H6030H1696H8085 25The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, The lion shall eat straw like the ox, And dust shall be the serpent's food. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain," Says the LORD.H2061H2924H7462H259H738H398H8401H1241H6083H5175H3899H7489H7843H6944H2022H559H3068
