Column XLVI Isaiah 55 vs.8 to 57 vs.2

1. (Continue Chapter 55 vs.8) my ways, says YHWH. (9.) For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so they are higher, my ways
2. than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. (10.) For as it comes down,
3. the rain and the snow from heaven, and there does not return, but drenches
4. the earth, and causes it to grow and sprout, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
5. (11.) So shall my word be that goes out of my mouth: it shall not return to me void, but it shall do
6. that which I please, and it shall succeed in that which I sent it. (12.) For with joy
7. you shall go out, you shall walk in peace: the mountains and the hills shall break out before you singing,
8. and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. (13.) Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of
9. the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to YHWH for a sign, [m..name] for an everlasting name [m..sign] that shall not be cut off. (PP)

10. (Chapter 56 vs.1) [+Because+] thus says YHWH, Keep judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near
11. to come, and my righteousness to be revealed. (2.) Blessed is the man who does this, 12. and the son of man who seizes it; who keeps the sabbath from corrupting it, and keeps his hand from doing all evil.(PP)

13. (3.) Neither shall the son of an alien, who has joined himself to YHWH say YHWH has completely separated me from
14. his people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree. (4.) Because thus says YHWH
15. to the eunuchs who keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of
16. my covenant; (5.) And I will give to them in my house and within my walls [yad va-shem] a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters:
17. I will give them an everlasting name, that will not be cut off. (6.) Also the sons of the alien, who join themselves to YHWH,
18. to be his servants and to [+bless+] [m..love] keeping the sabbath from corrupting it,
19. and seizes my covenant; (7.) and I will bring them to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of
20. prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices they will offer willingly on my altar; for my house a house
21. of prayer shall be called for all the nations. (8.) Thus says the Lord YHWH who gathers the outcasts of Israel, Yet
22. will I gather others to him, to those who are now gathered to him. (9.). All you beasts of the field with him, eat, and all you beasts in the forest. (PP)
[*]

23. (10.) His watchmen are blind: all of them do not know, they are all dumb dogs, they are not able to bark; they
24. sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. (11.) and they are dogs of evil souls who do not know to be sated,
25. and they are shepherds who do not know to understand: they all turn to their own way, each man for his own profit, from his end.
26. (12.) Come you, we will take wine, and we will be sated with strong drink; and tomorrow shall be like this day, and very much {&greater&}. (PP)

27. (Chapter 57 vs.1) The righteous perishes, and no man takes it to heart: and merciful men are gathered away, no one understands
28. that from the presence of evil the righteous is gathered away. (2.) He shall go into peace: they shall rest on their beds,

Isaiah 55:8 to 57:2 King James Version

55:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.

9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.

56:1 Thus saith the Lord, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed.

2 Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil.

3 Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to the Lord, speak, saying, The Lord hath utterly separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree.

4 For thus saith the Lord unto the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant;

5 Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.

6 Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the Lord, to serve him, and to love the name of the Lord, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant;

7 Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.

8 The Lord God, which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him.

9 All ye beasts of the field, come to devour, yea, all ye beasts in the forest.

10 His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.

11 Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.

12 Come ye, say they, I will fetch wine, and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and to morrow shall be as this day, and much more abundant.

57:1 The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come.

2 He shall enter into peace: they shall rest in their beds, each one walking in his uprightness.
