Column XL Isaiah 47 vs.11 to 49 vs.4

1. (Continue Chapter 47 vs.11) and holocaust shall come upon you suddenly, and you shall not know. (12.) Stand {&waw&} please with your enchantments, and with the multitude of your witchcraft, in which you toiled
2. from your youth; [+until today+] [Q omits the rest “if it be that you shall be able to profit, if it be that you may prevail.”] (13.) [not in Q “you are wearied”] in the multitude of your counsels. Let them stand please, and let them save you, the astrologers, those seeing visions in stars,
3. the predictors of monthly knowledge, from these things that shall come on you. (14.) Behold, they shall be like chaff; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver their souls
4. from the hand of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm them, nor a light to sit opposite it. (15.) Thus shall they be to you with whom you have labored your merchants from your youth:
5. each man to his passing, they shall wander astray; none shall save you. (PP)

6. (Chapter 48 vs.1) Hear this, O house of Jacob, who are called by the name of Israel, and of the waters of Judah you came out , who swear by the name of
7. YHWH and in the God of Israel you remember, not in truth, nor in righteousness. (2.) because from the holy city they are called, and upon
8. the God of Israel they lean; YHWH of Hosts is his name. (3.) The beginning things from then I have told them and from my mouth they have gone out,
9. and I declared them; I did them suddenly, and they came to pass. (4.) On account of that {&…..&} I knew that you are hard, and your neck is an iron sinew, [+h]
10. and your brow brass; (5.) I told you, from then, before it came I declared it to you: lest you should say, My idol has done them,
11. and my graven image, and my molten image, commanded them. (6.) You heard, all of this and have you not told them ? I have caused you to hear new things from this time,
12. even Nazareth, which you did not know. (7.) They are created now, and not from then; and before the day you did not hear of them; lest you should say, Behold,
13. I already knew them. (8.) And also, you did not hear; also, you did not know; also your ear was not open from then: for I knew that
14. you would be very treacherous and were called a transgressor from the womb. (9.). For the sake of my name I will put afar off my anger, and I will restrain my praise for you, so as not to
15. cut you off. (10.) Behold, I have refined you, but not with silver; [Q = when I showed mercy to you] [m = I have chosen you] in the furnace of affliction. (11.) For my own sake, even for my own sake,
16. I will do it: {&because&} how can I profane it [m..+name]? and I will not give my glory to another. (PP)

17. (12.) Listen to this, Jacob and Israel, my called; I am he; I am the first, even I am the last. (13.) Yes. My hand also has laid the foundation of
18. the earth, and my right hand has spanned the heavens: I call to them, they stand up together. (14.) All of them gather together and they hear;
19. who is among them and has declared these things? YHWH loved him: he will do my desires on {&waw&} Babylon, and his arm shall be on the Chaldeans. (15.) I, even I,
20. have spoken; yes, I have called him: I have brought him, and he shall make his way prosperous. (16.) Draw near to me, [+erasure+] hear this;
21. I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it was, I was there: and now the Lord YHWH, and his Spirit, has sent me. [Read my comments on this important verse](PP)
[*]

22. (17) Thus says YHWH your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am YHWH your God your teacher for profit,
23. [Aramaic] the One who leads you by the way that you should go in it. (18.) And you did not listen to my commandments! then would your peace be as a river, and your righteousness
24. as the waves of the sea: (19.) Your seed also would have been as the sand, and the offspring like the gravel of it; their name should not have been cut off nor destroyed.from before me. (PP)
[*]

25. (20.) Go out of Babylon, flee from the Chaldeans, with a voice of singing declare it, tell this [m..+let it go out+] to the end of the earth;
26. say, The LORD has redeemed his servant Jacob. (21.) And they did not thirst in the deserts when he led them : he caused the waters [Q= to gush out] [m.. to flow out] from the rock for them:
27. he split the rock, and the waters gushed out. (22.) There is no peace, says YHWH, for the wicked. (PP)
[*]

28. (Chapter 49 vs.1) Hear me, O islands, and listen peoples, from afar; YHWH called me from the womb; from my mother’s belly
29. He caused my name to be remembered. (2.) And he has put my mouth {&as&} a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand He hid me, and made me [+a lamed-kaph overwrite+] as a polished arrow; [partial erased “be’ash”]
30. in his quiver he hid me; (3.) And He said to me, You are my servant Israel, in whom I will be glorified. (PP)
[*]

31. (4.) Then I said, for emptiness I have toiled, my strength for a void and a vapor I have spent surely my judgment is with YHWH and my work

Isaiah 47:11 to 49:4 King James Version

47:11 Therefore shall evil come upon thee; thou shalt not know from whence it riseth: and mischief shall fall upon thee; thou shalt not be able to put it off: and desolation shall come upon thee suddenly, which thou shalt not know.

12 Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries, wherein thou hast laboured from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail.

13 Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee.

14 Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it.

15 Thus shall they be unto thee with whom thou hast laboured, even thy merchants, from thy youth: they shall wander every one to his quarter; none shall save thee.

48:1 Hear ye this, O house of Jacob, which are called by the name of Israel, and are come forth out of the waters of Judah, which swear by the name of the Lord, and make mention of the God of Israel, but not in truth, nor in righteousness.

2 For they call themselves of the holy city, and stay themselves upon the God of Israel; The Lord of hosts is his name.

3 I have declared the former things from the beginning; and they went forth out of my mouth, and I shewed them; I did them suddenly, and they came to pass.

4 Because I knew that thou art obstinate, and thy neck is an iron sinew, and thy brow brass;

5 I have even from the beginning declared it to thee; before it came to pass I shewed it thee: lest thou shouldest say, Mine idol hath done them, and my graven image, and my molten image, hath commanded them.

6 Thou hast heard, see all this; and will not ye declare it? I have shewed thee new things from this time, even hidden things, and thou didst not know them.

7 They are created now, and not from the beginning; even before the day when thou heardest them not; lest thou shouldest say, Behold, I knew them.

8 Yea, thou heardest not; yea, thou knewest not; yea, from that time that thine ear was not opened: for I knew that thou wouldest deal very treacherously, and wast called a transgressor from the womb.

9 For my name’s sake will I defer mine anger, and for my praise will I refrain for thee, that I cut thee not off.

10 Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.

11 For mine own sake, even for mine own sake, will I do it: for how should my name be polluted? and I will not give my glory unto another.

12 Hearken unto me, O Jacob and Israel, my called; I am he; I am the first, I also am the last.

13 Mine hand also hath laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand hath spanned the heavens: when I call unto them, they stand up together.

14 All ye, assemble yourselves, and hear; which among them hath declared these things? The Lord hath loved him: he will do his pleasure on Babylon, and his arm shall be on the Chaldeans.

15 I, even I, have spoken; yea, I have called him: I have brought him, and he shall make his way prosperous.

16 Come ye near unto me, hear ye this; I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it was, there am I: and now the Lord God, and his Spirit, hath sent me.

17 Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go.

18 O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea:

19 Thy seed also had been as the sand, and the offspring of thy bowels like the gravel thereof; his name should not have been cut off nor destroyed from before me.

20 Go ye forth of Babylon, flee ye from the Chaldeans, with a voice of singing declare ye, tell this, utter it even to the end of the earth; say ye, The Lord hath redeemed his servant Jacob.

21 And they thirsted not when he led them through the deserts: he caused the waters to flow out of the rock for them: he clave the rock also, and the waters gushed out.

22 There is no peace, saith the Lord, unto the wicked.

49:1 Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The Lord hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name.

2 And he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword; in the shadow of his hand hath he hid me, and made me a polished shaft; in his quiver hath he hid me;

3 And said unto me, Thou art my servant, O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.

4 Then I said, I have laboured in vain, I have spent my strength for nought, and in vain: yet surely my judgment is with the Lord, and my work with my God.
