Isaiah 40:31(KJV)

Isaiah 40-44 Comfort for God's People Isa 40:1 Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith God. Isa 40:2 Speak, ye priests, to the heart of Jerusalem; comfort her, for her humiliation is accomplished, her sin is put away: for she has received of the Lord's hand double the amount of her sins. Isa 40:3 The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight the paths of our God. Isa 40:4 Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low: and all the crooked ways shall become straight, and the rough places plains. Isa 40:5 And the glory of the Lord shall appear, and all flesh shall see the salvation of God: for the Lord has spoken it. The Word of God Stands Forever Isa 40:6 The voice of one saying, Cry; and I said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass: Isa 40:8 The grass withers, and the flower fades: but the word of our God abides for ever. The Greatness of God Isa 40:9 O thou that bringest glad tidings to Sion, go up on the high mountain; lift up thy voice with strength, thou that bringest glad tidings to Jerusalem; lift it up, fear not; say unto the cities of Juda, Behold your God! Isa 40:10 Behold the Lord! The Lord is coming with strength, and his arm is with power: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him. Isa 40:11 He shall tend his flock as a shepherd, and he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and shall soothe them that are with young. Isa 40:12 Who has measured the water in his hand, and the heaven with a span, and all the earth in a handful? Who has weighed the mountains in scales, and the forests in a balance? Isa 40:13 Who has known the mind of the Lord? and who has been his counsellor, to instruct him? Isa 40:14 Or with whom has he taken counsel, and he has instructed him? or who has taught him judgment, or who has taught him the way of understanding; Isa 40:15 since all the nations are counted as a drop from a bucket, and as the turning of a balance, and shall be counted as spittle? Isa 40:16 And Libanus is not enough to burn, nor all beasts enough for a whole-burnt offering: Isa 40:17 and all the nations are as nothing, and counted as nothing. Isa 40:18 To whom have ye compared the Lord? and with what likeness have ye compared him? Isa 40:19 Has not the artificer made an image, or the goldsmith having melted gold, gilt it over, and made it a similitude? Isa 40:20 For the artificer chooses out a wood that will not rot, and will wisely enquire how he shall set up his image, and that so that it should not be moved. Isa 40:21 Will ye not know? will ye not hear? has it not been told you of old? Have ye not known the foundations of the earth? Isa 40:22 It is he that comprehends the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants in it are as grasshoppers; he that set up the heaven as a chamber, and stretched it out as a tent to dwell in: Isa 40:23 he that appoints princes to rule as nothing, and has made the earth as nothing. Isa 40:24 For they shall not plant, neither shall they sow, neither shall their root be fixed in the ground: he has blown upon them, and they are withered, and a storm shall carry them away like sticks. Isa 40:25 Now then to whom have ye compared me, that I may be exalted? saith the Holy One. Isa 40:26 Lift up your eyes on high, and see, who has displayed all these things? even he that brings forth his host by number: he shall call them all by name by means of his great glory, and by the power of his might: nothing has escaped thee. Isa 40:27 For say not thou, O Jacob, and why hast thou spoken, Israel, saying, My way is hid from God, and my God has taken away my judgement, and has departed? Isa 40:28 And now, hast thou not known? hast thou not heard? the eternal God, the God that formed the ends of the earth, shall not hunger, nor be weary, and there is no searching of his understanding. Isa 40:29 He gives strength to the hungry, and sorrow to them that are not suffering. Isa 40:30 For the young men shall hunger, and the youths shall be weary, and the choice men shall be powerless: Isa 40:31 but they that wait on God shall renew their strength; they shall put forth new feathers like eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall walk, and not hunger. Fear Not, for I Am with You Isa 41:1 Hold a feast to me, ye islands: for the princes shall renew their strength: let them draw nigh and speak together: then let them declare judgment. Isa 41:2 Who raised up righteousness from the east, and called it to his feet, so that it should go? shall appoint it an adversary of Gentiles, and shall dismay kings, and bury their swords in the earth, and cast forth their bows and arrows as sticks? Isa 41:3 And he shall pursue them; the way of his feet shall proceed in peace. Isa 41:4 Who has wrought and done these things? he has called it who called it from the generations of old; I God, the first and to all futurity, I AM. Isa 41:5 The nations saw, and feared; the ends of the earth drew nigh, and came together, Isa 41:6 every one judging for his neighbor and that to assist his brother: and one will say, Isa 41:7 The artificer has become strong, and the coppersmith that smites with the hammer, and forges also: sometimes he will say, It is a piece well joined: they have fastened them with nails; they will fix them, and they shall not be moved. Isa 41:8 But thou, Israel, art my servant Jacob, and he whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraam, whom I have loved: Isa 41:9 whom I have taken hold of from the ends of the earth, and from the high places of it I have called thee, and said to thee, Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee, and I have not forsaken thee. Isa 41:10 Fear not; for I am with thee: wander not; for I am thy God, who have strengthened thee; and I have helped thee, and have established thee with my just right hand. Isa 41:11 Behold, all thine adversaries shall be ashamed and confounded; for they shall be as if they were not: and all thine opponents shall perish. Isa 41:12 Thou shalt seek them, and thou shalt not find the men who shall insolently rage against thee: for they shall be as if they were not, and they that war against thee shall not be. Isa 41:13 For I am thy God, who holdeth thy right hand, who saith to thee, Isa 41:14 Fear not, Jacob, and thou Israel few in number; I have helped thee, saith thy God, he that redeems thee, O Israel. Isa 41:15 Behold, I have made thee as new saw-shaped threshing wheels of a waggon; and thou shalt thresh the mountains, and beat the hills to powder, and make them as chaff: Isa 41:16 and thou shalt winnow them, and the wind shall carry them away, and a tempest shall scatter them: but thou shalt rejoice in the holy ones of Israel. Isa 41:17 And the poor and the needy shall exult; for when they shall seek water, and there shall be none, and their tongue is parched with thirst, I the Lord God, I the God of Israel will hear, and will not forsake them: Isa 41:18 but I will open rivers on the mountains, and fountains in the midst of plains: I will make the desert pools of water, and a thirsty land watercourses. Isa 41:19 I will plant in the dry land the cedar and box, the myrtle and cypress, and white poplar: Isa 41:20 that they may see, and know, and perceive, and understand together, that the hand of the Lord has wrought these works, and the Holy One of Israel has displayed them. The Futility of Idols Isa 41:21 Your judgment draws nigh, saith the Lord God; your counsels have drawn nigh, saith the King of Jacob. Isa 41:22 Let them draw nigh, and declare to you what things shall come to pass; or tell us what things were of old, and we will apply our understanding, and we shall know what are the last and the future things: Isa 41:23 tell us, declare ye to us the things that are coming on at the last time, and we shall know that ye are gods: do good, and do evil, and we shall wonder, and see at the same time Isa 41:24 whence ye are, and whence is your works: they have chosen you an abomination out of the earth. Isa 41:25 But I have raised up him that comes from the north, and him that comes from the rising of the sun: they shall be called by my name: let the princes come, and as potter's clay, and as a potter treading clay, so shall ye be trodden down. Isa 41:26 For who will declare the things from the beginning, that we may know also the former things, and we will say that they are true? there is no one that speaks beforehand, nor anyone that hears your words. Isa 41:27 I will give dominion to Sion, and will comfort Jerusalem by the way. Isa 41:28 For from among the nations, behold, there was no one; and of their idols there was none to declare anything: and if I should ask them, Whence are ye? they could not answer me. Isa 41:29 For these are your makers, as ye think, and they that cause you to err in vain. The Lord's Chosen Servant Isa 42:1 Jacob is my servant, I will help him: Israel is my chosen, my soul has accepted him; I have put my Spirit upon him; he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles. Isa 42:2 He shall not cry, nor lift up his voice, nor shall his voice be heard without. Isa 42:3 A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench; but he shall bring forth judgment to truth. Isa 42:4 He shall shine out, and shall not be discouraged, until he have set judgment on the earth: and in his name shall the Gentiles trust. Isa 42:5 Thus saith the Lord God, who made the heaven, and established it; who settled the earth, and the things in it, and gives breath to the people on it, and spirit to them that tread on it: Isa 42:6 I the Lord God have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will strengthen thee: and I have given thee for the covenant of a race, for a light of the Gentiles: Isa 42:7 to open the eyes of the blind, to bring the bound and them that sit in darkness out of bonds and the prison-house. Isa 42:8 I am the Lord God: that is my name: I will not give my glory to another, nor my praises to graven images. Isa 42:9 Behold, the ancient things have come to pass, and so will the new things which I tell you: yea, before I tell them they are made known to you. Sing to the Lord a New Song Isa 42:10 Sing a new hymn to the Lord: ye who are his dominion, glorify his name from the end of the earth: ye that go down to the sea, and sail upon it; the islands, and they that dwell in them. Isa 42:11 Rejoice, thou wilderness, and the villages thereof, the hamlets, and the dwellers in Kedar: the inhabitants of the rock shall rejoice, they shall shout from the top of the mountains. Isa 42:12 They shall give glory to God, and shall proclaim his praises in the islands. Isa 42:13 The Lord God of hosts shall go forth, and crush the war: he shall stir up jealousy, and shall shout mightily against his enemies. Isa 42:14 I have been silent: shall I also always be silent and forbear: I have endured like a travailing woman: I will now amaze and wither at once. Isa 42:15 I will make desolate mountains and hills, and will dry up all their grass; and I will make the rivers islands, and dry up the pools. Isa 42:16 And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not, and I will cause them to tread paths which they have not known: I will turn darkness into light for them, and crooked things into straight. These things will I do, and will not forsake them. Isa 42:17 But they are turned back: be ye utterly ashamed that trust in graven images, who say to the molten images, Ye are our gods. Israel's Failure to Hear and See Isa 42:18 Hear, ye deaf, and look up, ye blind, to see. Isa 42:19 And who is blind, but my servants? and deaf, but they that rule over them? yea, the servants of God have been made blind. Isa 42:20 Ye have often seen, and have not taken heed; your ears have been opened, and ye have not heard. Isa 42:21 The Lord God has taken counsel that he might be justified, and might magnify his praise. Isa 42:22 And I beheld, and the people were spoiled and plundered: for there is a snare in the secret chambers everywhere, and in the houses also, where they have hidden them: they became a spoil, and there was no one that delivered the prey, and there was none who said, Restore. Isa 42:23 Who is there among you that will give ear to these things? hearken ye to the things which are coming to pass. Isa 42:24 For what did he give to Jacob up to spoil, and Israel to them that plundered him? Did not God do it against whom they sinned? and they would not walk in his ways, nor hearken to his law. Isa 42:25 So he brought upon them the fury of his wrath; and the war, and those that burnt round about them, prevailed against them; yet no one of them knew it, neither did they lay it to heart. Israel's Only Savior Isa 43:1 And now thus saith the Lord God that made thee, O Jacob, and formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. Isa 43:2 And if thou pass through water, I am with thee; and the rivers shall not overflow thee: and if thou go through fire, thou shalt not be burned; the flame shall not burn thee. Isa 43:3 For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, that saves thee: I have made Egypt and Ethiopia thy ransom, and given Soene for thee. Isa 43:4 Since thou becamest precious in my sight, thou hast become glorious, and I have loved thee: and I will give men for thee, and princes for thy life. Isa 43:5 Fear not; for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and will gather thee from the west. Isa 43:6 I will say to the north, Bring; and to the south, Keep not back; bring my sons from the land afar off, and my daughters from the ends of the earth; Isa 43:7 even all who are called by my name: for I have prepared him for my glory, and I have formed him, and have made him: Isa 43:8 and I have brought forth the blind people; for their eyes are alike blind, and they that have ears are deaf. Isa 43:9 All the nations are gathered together, and princes shall be gathered out of them: who will declare these things? or who will declare to you things from the beginning? let them bring forth their witnesses, and be justified; and let them hear, and declare the truth. Isa 43:10 Be ye my witnesses, and I too am a witness, saith the Lord God, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know, and believe, and understand that I am he: before me there was no other God, and after me there shall be none. Isa 43:11 I am God; and beside me there is no Saviour. Isa 43:12 I have declared, and have saved; I have reproached, and there was no strange god among you: ye are my witnesses, and I am the Lord God, Isa 43:13 even from the beginning; and there is none that can deliver out of my hands: I will work, and who shall turn it back? Isa 43:14 Thus saith the Lord God that redeems you, the Holy One of Israel; for your sakes I will send to Babylon, and I will stir up all that flee, and the Chaldeans shall be bound in ships. Isa 43:15 I am the Lord God, your Holy One, who have appointed for Israel your king. Isa 43:16 Thus saith the Lord, who makes a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty water; Isa 43:17 who brought forth chariots and horse, and a mighty multitude: but they have lain down, and shall not rise: they are extinct, as quenched flax. Isa 43:18 Remember ye not the former things, and consider not the ancient things. Isa 43:19 Behold, I will do new things, which shall presently spring forth, and ye shall know them: and I will make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the dry land. Isa 43:20 the beasts of the field shall bless me, the owls and young ostriches; for I have given water in the wilderness, and rivers in the dry land, to give drink to my chosen race, Isa 43:21 my people whom I have preserved to tell forth my praises. Isa 43:22 I have not now called thee, O Jacob; neither have I made thee weary, O Israel. Isa 43:23 Thou hast not brought me the sheep of thy whole-burnt-offering; neither hast thou glorified me with thy sacrifices. I have not caused thee to serve with sacrifices, neither have I wearied thee with frankincense. Isa 43:24 Neither hast thou purchased for me victims for silver, neither have I desired the fat of thy sacrifices: but thou didst stand before me in thy sins, and in thine iniquities. Isa 43:25 I, even I, am he that blots out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and thy sins; and I will not remember them. Isa 43:26 But do thou remember, and let us plead together: do thou first confess thy transgressions, that thou mayest be justified. Isa 43:27 Your fathers first, and your princes have transgressed against me. Isa 43:28 And the princes have defiled my sanctuaries: so I gave Jacob to enemies to destroy, and Israel to reproach.
