Column XXXVII Isaiah 43 vs.20 to 44 vs.23

1. (Continue Chapter 43 vs.20) because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in Jeshimon, to give drink to my people, and my chosen. (21.) This people have I formed for myself; they shall speak my praise. (PP)

2. (22.) But you did not call me, Jacob; because you were weary of me, Israel. (23.) You did not bring me a sheep for a burnt offering; and with your sacrifices
3. you did not glorify me. [+and you did not make me a present+] [m..I have not caused you to serve] and I have not wearied you with incense. (24.) You did not buy for me with silver sweet cane
4. nor with the fat of your sacrifices have you filled me, but you have made me to serve with your sins, you have wearied me with your iniquities. (25.) I, even I,
5. am He, the one blotting out your transgressions for my own sake, and I will remember your sins no longer (26.) Cause me to remember, let us judge together: explain in what manner [*]
6. you are justified. (27.) Your first father sinned, and your leaders transgressed against me.
(28) and I have cursed the princes of holiness, and gave Jacob to the curse,
7. and Israel to reproaches. [*] (Chapter 44 vs.1) Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant; and Israel, my chosen [come, or: in it]: (PP)
[*]

8.(2.) Thus says YHWH the one who made you, and the one who formed you from the womb, the one helping you; Do not be afraid Jacob, my servant; and you, Jeshurun, my chosen [come or to it].
9. (3.) because I will pour water on the thirsty, and floods on the dry land: {&thus&} I will pour my spirit upon your seed, and my blessing upon your offspring: (4.) And they shall spring up as among
10. the grass, as willows by the streams of water. (5.) This one will say, I am YHWH’s; and this one shall call on the name of Jacob; and another shall write with his hand
11. to YHWH and on the name of Israel he shall be titled (PP)

12. (6.) Thus says YHWH the King of Israel, and his Redeemer YHWH of hosts [+is his name]; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.
13. (7.) And who is like me, who can call, and tell, and explain for myself since I placed the people of antiquity; The things that have happened.let them say, the things that are coming the things to come in future Let them tell
14. to us. (8.) Do not fear, nor be afraid: have I not from then spoken of it to you, and have told it? you are my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? There is no god of
15. stone that I know..(9.) The makers an idol all of them are empty; and their coveted things without profit; and their own witnesses {&they are&} they do not see and they do not know; so that
16. they may be ashamed. (10.) Who forms a god, or casts an idol for no profit? (11.) Behold, all his friends shall be ashamed for the workmen are from mankind; They are gathered together
17. all of them and they stand up they are afraid and they are ashamed together. (12.) The iron worker works with tongs in the coals, and fashions {&yod&} it with hammers, and works it
18. with the strength of his arms: also he is hungry, and he has no strength: he drinks no water, and is tired. (13.) The craftsman{&yod&}of wood stretches out his ruler; he marks it out with a line;
19. he fits it with planes, and he marks it out with the compass, and makes it in the shape of a man, according to human excellence, to abide in the house, (14.) for hewing down
20. for himself cedars, and taking the cypress and the oak, which he strengthens for himself among the trees of the forest: he plants an ash, and the rain makes it grow. (15.) Then it shall blaze [m..be] for man for burning: and he will take
21. from them, and warm himself; yes, he kindles it, and bakes bread; yes, he labors it a god, and worships it; he makes an idol, and falls down to it. (16.) Half he burns in
22. the fire; {&and with&} half of it he eats flesh; he kindles and he warms himself he roasts meat, and is satisfied: he warms himself, and says to his brother, I am warm, I am before the light [m..fire:] (17.) And with the remains he makes a god,
23. from a tree trunk {m…even his graven image:] and he falls down to it and worships and prays to it, and says, Deliver me; for you are my god. (18.) They do not know nor understand
24. for he has plastered their eyes, from seeing; and their hearts, from understanding. (19.) And none returns to his heart, nor is there knowledge nor understanding to say [+to say+],
25. I have burned part of it in the fire; yes I have baked bread upon the coals; I have roasted flesh, and eaten it: and the rest I shall make an abomination? shall I fall down to the trunk
26. of a tree? (20) He feeds on dust a deceived heart has stretched him out, so that he cannot deliver his soul, nor say, There is falsehood in my right hand. (PP)

27. (21.) Remember these, O Jacob and Israel; for you are my servant: I have formed you my servant: Israel, I shall not forget you. (22.) I have blotted out, as a cloud,
28. your transgressions, and, as a cloud, your sins: return to me; for I have redeemed you. (PP)

29. (23.) Sing, O heavens; for YHWH has done it: shout, under parts of the earth: break out into singing, O mountains, O forest, and every tree there: because YHWH has redeemed

Isaiah 43:20 to 44:23 King James Version

43:20 The beast of the field shall honour me, the dragons and the owls: because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen.

21 This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.

22 But thou hast not called upon me, O Jacob; but thou hast 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 wearied me with thine iniquities.

25 I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for 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 Thy first father hath sinned, and thy teachers have transgressed against me.

28 Therefore I have profaned the princes of the sanctuary, and have given Jacob to the curse, and Israel to reproaches.

44:1 Yet now hear, O Jacob my servant; and Israel, whom I have chosen:

2 Thus saith the Lord that made thee, and formed thee from the womb, which will help thee; Fear not, O Jacob, my servant; and thou, Jesurun, whom I have chosen.

3 For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring:

4 And they shall spring up as among the grass, as willows by the water courses.

5 One shall say, I am the Lord’s; and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob; and another shall subscribe with his hand unto the Lord, and surname himself by the name of Israel.

6 Thus saith the Lord the King of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.

7 And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient people? and the things that are coming, and shall come, let them shew unto them.

8 Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.

9 They that make a graven image are all of them vanity; and their delectable things shall not profit; and they are their own witnesses; they see not, nor know; that they may be ashamed.

10 Who hath formed a god, or molten a graven image that is profitable for nothing?

11 Behold, all his fellows shall be ashamed: and the workmen, they are of men: let them all be gathered together, let them stand up; yet they shall fear, and they shall be ashamed together.

12 The smith with the tongs both worketh in the coals, and fashioneth it with hammers, and worketh it with the strength of his arms: yea, he is hungry, and his strength faileth: he drinketh no water, and is faint.

13 The carpenter stretcheth out his rule; he marketh it out with a line; he fitteth it with planes, and he marketh it out with the compass, and maketh it after the figure of a man, according to the beauty of a man; that it may remain in the house.

14 He heweth him down cedars, and taketh the cypress and the oak, which he strengtheneth for himself among the trees of the forest: he planteth an ash, and the rain doth nourish it.

15 Then shall it be for a man to burn: for he will take thereof, and warm himself; yea, he kindleth it, and baketh bread; yea, he maketh a god, and worshippeth it; he maketh it a graven image, and falleth down thereto.

16 He burneth part thereof in the fire; with part thereof he eateth flesh; he roasteth roast, and is satisfied: yea, he warmeth himself, and saith, Aha, I am warm, I have seen the fire:

17 And the residue thereof he maketh a god, even his graven image: he falleth down unto it, and worshippeth it, and prayeth unto it, and saith, Deliver me; for thou art my god.

18 They have not known nor understood: for he hath shut their eyes, that they cannot see; and their hearts, that they cannot understand.

19 And none considereth in his heart, neither is there knowledge nor understanding to say, I have burned part of it in the fire; yea, also I have baked bread upon the coals thereof; I have roasted flesh, and eaten it: and shall I make the residue thereof an abomination? shall I fall down to the stock of a tree?

20 He feedeth on ashes: a deceived heart hath turned him aside, that he cannot deliver his soul, nor say, Is there not a lie in my right hand?

21 Remember these, O Jacob and Israel; for thou art my servant: I have formed thee; thou art my servant: O Israel, thou shalt not be forgotten of me.

22 I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee.

23 Sing, O ye heavens; for the Lord hath done it: shout, ye lower parts of the earth: break forth into singing, ye mountains, O forest, and every tree therein: for the Lord hath redeemed Jacob, and glorified himself in Israel.
