and the flame will not burn you.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 43:3 -

“For I am the Lord your God,

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 43:9 -

All the nations are gathered together,

and the peoples are assembled.

Who among them can declare this,

Let them present their witnesses

to vindicate themselves,

so that people may hear and say, “It is true.”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 43:10 -

“You are my witnesses” —

this is the Lord’s declaration —

and there will be none after me.

who brings out the chariot and horse,

the army and the mighty one together

(they lie down, they do not rise again;

they are extinguished, put out like a wick) —

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 43:18 -

pay no attention to things of old.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 43:19 -

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 43:20 -

or honored me with your sacrifices.

I have not burdened you with offerings

or wearied you with incense.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 43:24 -

“You have not bought me aromatic cane with silver,

or satisfied me with the fat of your sacrifices.

But you have burdened me with your sins;

you have wearied me with your iniquities.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 43:25 -

for my own sake

and remember your sins no more.
