Jeshurun[fn] whom I have chosen.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:3 -

No God Other Than The LORD

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:6 -

I am the first and I am the last.

There is no God but me.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:7 -

Who, like me, can announce the future?

Let him say so and make a case before me,

since I have established an ancient people.

Let these gods declare[fn] the coming things,

and what will take place.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:8 -

Do not be startled or afraid.

Have I not told you and declared it long ago?

You are my witnesses!

Is there any God but me?

There is no other Rock; I do not know any.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:9 -

All who make idols are nothing,

and what they treasure benefits no one.

Their witnesses do not see or know anything,

Who makes a god or casts a metal image

that benefits no one?

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:11 -

and the craftsmen are humans.

They all will assemble and stand;

they all will be startled and put to shame.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:12 -

The ironworker labors over the coals,

shapes the idol with hammers,

and works it with his strong arm.

Also he grows hungry and his strength fails;

he doesn’t drink water and is faint.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:13 -

The woodworker stretches out a measuring line,

he outlines it with a stylus;

he shapes it with chisels

and outlines it with a compass.

He makes it according to a human form,

like a beautiful person,

to dwell in a temple.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:14 -

He cuts down[fn] cedars for his use,

or he takes a cypress or an oak.

He lets it grow strong among the trees of the forest.

He plants a laurel, and the rain makes it grow.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:15 -

A person can use it for fuel.

He takes some of it and warms himself;

also he kindles a fire and bakes bread;

he even makes it into a god and worships it;

he makes an idol from it and bows down to it.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:16 -

He burns half of it in a fire,

and he roasts meat on that half.

He eats the roast and is satisfied.

He warms himself and says, “Ah!

I am warm, I see the blaze.”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:17 -

He makes a god or his idol with the rest of it.

He bows down to it and worships;

he prays to it, “Save me, for you are my god.”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:18 -

Such people[fn] do not comprehend

and cannot understand,

for he has shut their eyes[fn] so they cannot see,

and their minds so they cannot understand.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:19 -

No one comes to his senses;[fn]

no one has the perception or insight to say,

“I burned half of it in the fire,

I also baked bread on its coals,

I roasted meat and ate.

Should I make something detestable with the rest of it?

Should I bow down to a block of wood? ”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:20 -

He feeds on[fn] ashes.

His deceived mind has led him astray,

and he cannot rescue himself,

or say, “Isn’t there a lie in my right hand? ”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:21 -

Remember these things, Jacob,

and Israel, for you are my servant;

I formed you, you are my servant;

Israel, you will never be forgotten by me.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:22 -

I have swept away your transgressions like a cloud,

and your sins like a mist.

Return to me,

for I have redeemed you.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:23 -

Rejoice, heavens, for the LORD has acted;

shout, depths of the earth.

Break out into singing, mountains,

forest, and every tree in it.

For the LORD has redeemed Jacob,

and glorifies himself through Israel.

Restoration of Israel through Cyrus

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:24 -

This is what the LORD, your Redeemer who formed you from the womb, says:

I am the LORD, who made everything;

who stretched out the heavens by myself;

who alone spread out the earth;

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:25 -

who destroys the omens of the false prophets

and makes fools of diviners;

who confounds the wise

and makes their knowledge foolishness;

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:26 -

who confirms the message of his servant

and fulfills the counsel of his messengers;

who says to Jerusalem, “She will be inhabited,”

and to the cities of Judah, “They will be rebuilt,”

and I will restore her ruins;

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:27 -

who says to the depths of the sea, “Be dry,”

and I will dry up your rivers;

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:28 -

who says to Cyrus, “My shepherd,

he will fulfill all my pleasure”

and says to Jerusalem, “She will be rebuilt,”

and of the temple, “Its foundation will be laid.”
