Isaiah 43

1 But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: afor I have redeemed thee, bI have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. 2 cWhen thou passest through the waters, dI will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when ethou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. 3 For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: fI gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee. 4 Since thou wast gprecious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life. 5 hFear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west; 6 I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth; 7 Even every one that is jcalled by my name: for iI have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.

8 kBring forth the blind people that have eyes, and the deaf that have ears. 9 Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the people be assembled: who among them can declare this, and shew us former things? let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified: or let them hear, and say, It is truth. 10 lYe are my witnesses, saith the LORD, mand my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. 11 I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour. 12 I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no nstrange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God. 13 oYea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it?

14 Thus saith the LORD, your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; For your sake I have sent to Babylon, and have brought down all their nobles, and the Chaldeans, whose cry is in the ships. 15 I am the LORD, your Holy One, the creator of Israel, your pKing. 16 Thus saith the LORD, qwhich maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters; 17 Which rbringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power; they shall lie down together, they shall not rise: they are extinct, they are quenched as tow.

18 Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. 19 Behold, I will do a snew thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. 20 The beast of the field shall honour me, the dragons and the owls: because tI give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen. 21 uThis people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.

22 But thou hast not called upon me, O Jacob; but thou vhast been weary of me, O Israel. 23 Thou hast not brought me the small cattle of thy burnt offerings; neither hast thou honoured me with thy sacrifices. I have not caused thee to serve with an offering, nor wearied thee with incense. 24 Thou hast bought me no sweet cane with money, neither hast thou filled me with the fat of thy sacrifices: but thou hast made me to serve with thy sins, thou hast wwearied me with thine iniquities. 25 I, even I, am he that xblotteth out thy transgressions yfor mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins. 26 Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified. 27 zThy first father hath sinned, and thy teachers have transgressed against me. 28 Therefore aI have profaned the princes of the sanctuary, band have given Jacob to the curse, and Israel to reproaches.
