Column XLII Isaiah 50 vs.1 to 51 vs.13

1. (Continue Chapter 50 vs.1) I have sold you to him? Behold, for your iniquities you have been sold, and for your transgressions is your mother sent {&waw&} away. (2.) Wherefore,
2. when I came, was there no man? when I called, there was no one to answer? Is my hand extremely shortened from ransom or is there no strength in me
3. to deliver? behold, at my rebuke I dry up the sea, I set rivers as a wilderness: their fish smell bad, from lack of water
4. and they die of thirst (3.) I dress the heavens with darkness, and I make sackcloth as their covering. (PP)

5. (4.). The Lord YHWH gave me the tongue of the learned, to know to help the weary with words: he wakens me morning by morning, he wakens
6. my ear to hear as the learned. (5.) The Lord [+God+] [m..YHWH] has opened my ear, and I did not rebel backward neither
7. did I turn away. (6.) I gave my back to the strikers, and my cheeks to those [+beating with iron+] my face [m..plucking hair] I did not hide from disgraces and spitting. (7.) For the Lord
8. YHWH will help me; therefore I am not humiliated: therefore have I set my face like flints, and I know I shall not be ashamed. (8) He is near
9. the one justifying me; who will strive with me? let us stand together: who is the lord of my judgement let him draw near to me. (9.) Behold, the Lord YHWH
10. will help me; who is he who shall do evil to me? behold, all of them shall wear out as a garment; a moth shall eat them. (10.). Who is among you who fears YHWH,
11. who hears the voice of his servant, who walks in darkness, and has no brightness to him? he trusts in the name of YHWH, and leans upon his God.
12. (11.) Behold, all you kindlers of fire, surrounders with sparks: walk in the light of your fire, and in the sparks that you have lit. from my hand this is
13. that which is for you: to sorrow you shall lie down. (PP)

14. (Chapter 51 vs.1) Listen to me, pursuers of righteousness, seekers of YHWH: look to the rock from which you are hewn, and to the hole of the pit from which you were dug.
15. (2 ) Look to Abraham your father, and to Sarah who bore you: for I called him singly, and [+made him fruitful], [m..I blessed him] and multiplied him.
16. (3.) For YHWH shall comfort Zion: he will comfort all her waste places; and he will set her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of YHWH; joy
17. and gladness shall be found in her, thanksgiving, and the sound of music. [+and sorrow and mourning shall flee+]. (PP)

18. (4.). Draw near to me, my people; and to me, my nation give ear: for a Torah shall go out from me, and I will stir up my judgment for a light of the people.
19. (5.). My righteousness is near; my salvation is gone out, and my arms shall judge the nations; the islands shall wait for me, and on my arm they shall hope. (6.) Lift up to the heavens,
20. your eyes and look upon the earth beneath {+and see who created this+] [these following words in the M text do not appear in Q “for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment,”] (PP)

21. and her inhabitants like this shall die and my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be cast down. (PP)
[*]

22. (7.) Hear me, you knowers of righteousness, people in whose heart is my Torah; fear not the reproach of men, and from their revilings {&mem&} do not be downcast. (8.) because like a garment
23. a moth shall eat them, and the worm shall eat them like wool: and my righteousness shall be for ever, and my salvation from generation to generations. (PP)

24. (9.). Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of YHWH; awake, as in the days of antiquity, in the generations of the ages; are you not the one who chopped up
25. the monster-Rahab, and wounded the sea monster? (10.) Are you not he who dried the sea, the waters of the great abyss; the one who put [+in+] the depths of the sea
26 a way for the [+dispersed+] [m..redeemed] to pass over? [+a word erased+] (11.) Therefore the ransomed of YHWH shall return, and come with singing to Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their heads
27. they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and sighing shall flee. (PP)

28. (12.) I, even I, am he who comforts you:{&scratch out&} who are you, that you should be afraid of a man who will shall die, and of the son of man who shall be given as grass; (13.) And you forget
29. [+eth+] YHWH your maker, who has stretched out the heavens, and He founded the earth; and you fear continually every day from the face of the fury of the oppressor,

Isaiah 50:1 to 51:13 King James Version

50:1 Thus saith the Lord, Where is the bill of your mother’s divorcement, whom I have put away? or which of my creditors is it to whom I have sold you? Behold, for your iniquities have ye sold yourselves, and for your transgressions is your mother put away.

2 Wherefore, when I came, was there no man? when I called, was there none to answer? Is my hand shortened at all, that it cannot redeem? or have I no power to deliver? behold, at my rebuke I dry up the sea, I make the rivers a wilderness: their fish stinketh, because there is no water, and dieth for thirst.

3 I clothe the heavens with blackness, and I make sackcloth their covering.

4 The Lord God hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned.

5 The Lord God hath opened mine ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away back.

6 I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting.

7 For the Lord God will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed.

8 He is near that justifieth me; who will contend with me? let us stand together: who is mine adversary? let him come near to me.

9 Behold, the Lord God will help me; who is he that shall condemn me? lo, they all shall wax old as a garment; the moth shall eat them up.

10 Who is among you that feareth the Lord, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the Lord, and stay upon his God.

11 Behold, all ye that kindle a fire, that compass yourselves about with sparks: walk in the light of your fire, and in the sparks that ye have kindled. This shall ye have of mine hand; ye shall lie down in sorrow.

51:1 Hearken to me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek the Lord: look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged.

2 Look unto Abraham your father, and unto Sarah that bare you: for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him.

3 For the Lord shall comfort Zion: he will comfort all her waste places; and he will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of the Lord; joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody.

4 Hearken unto me, my people; and give ear unto me, O my nation: for a law shall proceed from me, and I will make my judgment to rest for a light of the people.

5 My righteousness is near; my salvation is gone forth, and mine arms shall judge the people; the isles shall wait upon me, and on mine arm shall they trust.

6 Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.

7 Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law; fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings.

8 For the moth shall eat them up like a garment, and the worm shall eat them like wool: but my righteousness shall be for ever, and my salvation from generation to generation.

9 Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the Lord; awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old. Art thou not it that hath cut Rahab, and wounded the dragon?

10 Art thou not it which hath dried the sea, the waters of the great deep; that hath made the depths of the sea a way for the ransomed to pass over?

11 Therefore the redeemed of the Lord shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.

12 I, even I, am he that comforteth you: who art thou, that thou shouldest be afraid of a man that shall die, and of the son of man which shall be made as grass;

13 And forgettest the Lord thy maker, that hath stretched forth the heavens, and laid the foundations of the earth; and hast feared continually every day because of the fury of the oppressor, as if he were ready to destroy? and where is the fury of the oppressor?
