Fear not, O Jacob my servant,
Jeshurun whom I have chosen.

have I not told you from of old and declared it?
And you are my witnesses!
Is there a God besides me?
There is no Rock; I know not any.”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:17 - And the rest of it he makes into a god, his idol, and falls down to it and worships it. He prays to it and says, “Deliver me, for you are my god!”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:18 - They know not, nor do they discern, for he has shut their eyes, so that they cannot see, and their hearts, so that they cannot understand.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:19 - No one considers, nor is there knowledge or discernment to say, “Half of it I burned in the fire; I also baked bread on its coals; I roasted meat and have eaten. And shall I make the rest of it an abomination? Shall I fall down before a block of wood?”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:24 - Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer,

“I am the LORD, who made all things,
who alone stretched out the heavens,
who spread out the earth by myself,

and makes fools of diviners,
who turns wise men back
and makes their knowledge foolish,

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:26 - who confirms the word of his servant
and fulfills the counsel of his messengers,
who says of Jerusalem, ‘She shall be inhabited,’
and of the cities of Judah, ‘They shall be built,
and I will raise up their ruins’;

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:27 - who says to the deep, ‘Be dry;
I will dry up your rivers’;

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:28 - who says of Cyrus, ‘He is my shepherd,
and he shall fulfill all my purpose’;
saying of Jerusalem, ‘She shall be built,’
and of the temple, ‘Your foundation shall be laid.’”
