Column XXXVIII Isaiah 44 vs.23 to 45 vs.21

1. (Continue Chapter 44 vs.23) [*] Jacob, and has done wonders in Israel. Thus says YHWH, your redeemer, and he who formed you from the womb,
2. I am YHWH maker of all things; stretching out the heavens alone; spreading abroad the earth by myself; (25.) Frustrating the symbols of the{& liars&}, and making those doing divination
3. to rant; turning around the {&wise men&} backward, and making their knowledge foolish; (26.) confirming the word of his servant, and He rewards the counsel of his messengers; the one saying
4. to Jerusalem, You shall be inhabited; and to the cities of Judah, you shall be built, and your wasted places I will raise them up: 27 saying to the deep, Be dry,
5. and I will dry up your rivers: (28.) saying of Cyrus, he is my shepherd, and all my desires he will complete: and saying to Jerusalem, you shall be built;
6. [*] and to the temple, your {&yod&}foundation shall be laid. … (Chapter 45 vs.1) Thus says YHWH to his messiah, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have held,
7. to bring down Gentiles before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two doored gates; and the gates shall not be shut; (2.) I
8. will go before you, and make straight: the crooked places I will shatter the gates of brass, and chop up the bars of iron: (3.) And I will give
9. to you the treasures of darkness, and riches of secret places, so that you will know that I YHWH, the One calling you by your name,
10. am the God of Israel. (4.) For the sake of Jacob my servant, and Israel my chosen, I have called you by your {&yod&} name: [m..+I have surnamed you,] and neither
11. did you know me. (5.) I am YHWH, and there is no one else, and beside me there is no God I girded you, and you did not know me: (6.) So that they will know
12. from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am YHWH, and there is no one else. (7.) I am the former of the light, and creator of darkness:
13. making good {m..peace..m), and creating evil: I YHWH am doing all these things. (PP)

14. (8.) [m..+ Drop down,] you heavens, from above, and let the clouds pour out righteousness, speak to the earth and let it sprout salvation, let righteousness be made to spring out [the rest of verse 8 is not in Q “I am YHWH I created it”] (PP)

15. [ SPACE] (9.) Woe to him who argues with the One making him. as the potsherd argues with the potsherds of the earth. [+Woe+] to the one saying
16. to the One forming it, What are you making? or: your work, it has no [+human+] hands? (10.) Woe to him who says to his father, What did you beget? or to the woman,
17. [{What}] have you brought forth? (11.). Thus says YHWH {&the Holy One of Israel,&} and his Maker, Ask me of future signs concerning my sons, and concerning the work of
18. [{my hands.}] Command me! (12.) I made the earth, and man upon it I created: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all
19. [{their host]|} have I commanded. (13.) I have raised him up in righteousness, and I will straighten all his ways: he shall build
20. [{my city, and the ca}]ptive he shall send out, not for price nor reward, says YHWH of hosts. (PP)

21. (14.) [{ Thus says)] YHWH, The toil of Egypt, and merchandise of Ethiopia and of the Sabeans, men of stature, they shall pass over to you, and they shall be yours:
22. [{behind they shall c}]ome in fetters; they shall pass over, and they shall fall down and worship you, and to you they shall pray, saying, Surely God is in you; and there is no other,
23. [{and there is no other G}]od. (15.) Therefore you are a God of hidden places, O God of Israel, the Savior. (16.) They shall be ashamed, and also humiliated, all of them:
24. {[together}] shall go to humiliation who are craftsmen of stone idols. (17.) Israel shall be saved by YHWH with an everlasting salvation:
25. you shall not be ashamed nor humiliated for ever and ever. (PP)

26. (18.) For thus says YHWH creator of the heavens; He is the God and He formed the earth and made it; and he
27. prepared it, He did not create it void, he formed it to be inhabited: I am YHWH; and there is no one else. (19) I did not speak in secret,
28. in a dark place of the earth: I did not say to the seed of Jacob in vain, Seek me; I YHWH speak
29. righteousness, telling things that are straight. (20.) Assemble yourselves and come; draw near [m..+together], and with him who is escaped from the Gentiles: Neither
30. do the ones setting up the wood of their idols know, that they pray to a god that cannot save. (21.) Let them tell, and bring them near;

Isaiah 44:23 to 45:21 King James Version

44:23 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.

24 Thus saith the Lord, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the Lord that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;

25 That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish;

26 That confirmeth the word of his servant, and performeth the counsel of his messengers; that saith to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be inhabited; and to the cities of Judah, Ye shall be built, and I will raise up the decayed places thereof:

27 That saith to the deep, Be dry, and I will dry up thy rivers:

28 That saith of Cyrus, He is my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasure: even saying to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be built; and to the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid.

45:1 Thus saith the Lord to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut;

2 I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:

3 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.

4 For Jacob my servant’s sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me.

5 I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:

6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else.

7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.

8 Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the Lord have created it.

9 Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands?

10 Woe unto him that saith unto his father, What begettest thou? or to the woman, What hast thou brought forth?

11 Thus saith the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.

12 I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded.

13 I have raised him up in righteousness, and I will direct all his ways: he shall build my city, and he shall let go my captives, not for price nor reward, saith the Lord of hosts.

14 Thus saith the Lord, The labour of Egypt, and merchandise of Ethiopia and of the Sabeans, men of stature, shall come over unto thee, and they shall be thine: they shall come after thee; in chains they shall come over, and they shall fall down unto thee, they shall make supplication unto thee, saying, Surely God is in thee; and there is none else, there is no God.

15 Verily thou art a God that hidest thyself, O God of Israel, the Saviour.

16 They shall be ashamed, and also confounded, all of them: they shall go to confusion together that are makers of idols.

17 But Israel shall be saved in the Lord with an everlasting salvation: ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end.

18 For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the Lord; and there is none else.

19 I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the Lord speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.

20 Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, ye that are escaped of the nations: they have no knowledge that set up the wood of their graven image, and pray unto a god that cannot save.

21 Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the Lord? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.
