Isaiah 42

Previous chapter Index Next chapter
one Behold, My Youth, whom I hold by the hand, my chosen one, whom my soul favors. I will put My spirit upon Him, and will declare judgment to the nations;
2 He will not cry out or exalt his voice, nor will he let him be heard in the streets;
3 he will not break a broken cane, and he will not extinguish flax of smokers; will judge in truth;
four He will not weaken nor be exhausted, until he approves judgment on earth, and the islands will trust in His law.

5 Thus says the Lord God, who created the heavens and their space, spreading the earth with its works, giving breath to the people on it and the spirit walking on it.
6 I, the Lord, called you to the truth, and I will hold your hand and keep you, and I will put you in the covenant for the people, in the light for the Gentiles,
7 to open the eyes of the blind, to bring prisoners out of prison and those sitting in darkness - from prison.
8 I am the Lord, this is My name, and I will not give My glory to another and My praise to idols.
9 Now, the [predicted] thing has come true before, and the new I will proclaim; before it happens, I will proclaim to you.
10 Sing to the Lord a new song, praise to Him from the ends of the earth, you, floating on the sea, and everything that fills it, the islands and those who live on them.
eleven May the desert and its cities, the village where Kidar dwells, exalt his voice; may those living on the rocks triumph, may they cry from the tops of the mountains.
12 May they give glory to the Lord, and may he declare his praise on the islands.

13 The Lord will come out as a giant, as a husband of abuse will arouse jealousy; He will call and raise a war cry, and show Himself strong against His enemies.
fourteen I was silent for a long time, endured, held on; now I will scream, as giving birth, I will destroy and absorb everything;
fifteen I will empty mountains and hills, and I will dry all their grass; I will make the rivers islands, and drain the lakes;
16 and I will lead the blind along a road that they do not know, in unknown ways I will lead them; I will make darkness light before them, and crooked paths straight: this is what I will do for them, and I will not leave them.
17 Then they will turn back and with great shame they will cover those who hope for idols saying to the idols: `You are our gods. '

eighteen Listen, deaf, and look, blind to see.
19 Who is so blind as My servant and deaf as My messenger whom I sent? Who is so blind as a beloved, so blind as a servant of the Lord?
twenty You saw a lot, but did not notice; ears were open but not heard.
21 The Lord was pleased, for the sake of His righteousness, to magnify and glorify the law.
22 But these people are ruined and plundered; they are all connected in dungeons and hidden in dungeons; become prey, and there is no deliverer; robbed, and no one says: give back!
23 How many of you have tipped your ear to this, delved into it and listened to it for the future?
24 Who betrayed Jacob to ruin and Israel to the robbers? Is it not the Lord against whom we have sinned? They did not want to walk in His ways and did not listen to His law.
25 And He poured out on them the fury of His wrath and the fierce war: she surrounded them with flame on all sides, but they did not notice; and burned with them, but they did not understand this with their hearts.
