Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 45:1 - Thus says the LORD to his anointed, to Cyrus,
whose right hand I have grasped,
to subdue nations before him
and to loose the belts of kings,
to open doors before him
that gates may not be closed:

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 45:2 - “I will go before you
and level the exalted places,[fn]
I will break in pieces the doors of bronze
and cut through the bars of iron,

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 45:3 - I will give you the treasures of darkness
and the hoards in secret places,
that you may know that it is I, the LORD,
the God of Israel, who call you by your name.

and Israel my chosen,
I call you by your name,
I name you, though you do not know me.

besides me there is no God;
I equip you, though you do not know me,

and from the west, that there is none besides me;
I am the LORD, and there is no other.

I make well-being and create calamity,
I am the LORD, who does all these things.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 45:8 - “Shower, O heavens, from above,
and let the clouds rain down righteousness;
let the earth open, that salvation and righteousness may bear fruit;
let the earth cause them both to sprout;
I the LORD have created it.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 45:9 - “Woe to him who strives with him who formed him,
a pot among earthen pots!
Does the clay say to him who forms it, ‘What are you making?’
or ‘Your work has no handles’?

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 45:10 - Woe to him who says to a father, ‘What are you begetting?’
or to a woman, ‘With what are you in labor?’”

“Ask me of things to come;
will you command me concerning my children and the work of my hands?[fn]

and created man on it;
it was my hands that stretched out the heavens,
and I commanded all their host.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 45:13 - I have stirred him up in righteousness,
and I will make all his ways level;
he shall build my city
and set my exiles free,
not for price or reward,”
says the LORD of hosts.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 45:14 - Thus says the LORD:
“The wealth of Egypt and the merchandise of Cush,
and the Sabeans, men of stature,
shall come over to you and be yours;
they shall follow you;
they shall come over in chains and bow down to you.
They will plead with you, saying:
‘Surely God is in you, and there is no other,
no god besides him.’”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 45:15 - Truly, you are a God who hides himself,
O God of Israel, the Savior.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 45:16 - All of them are put to shame and confounded;
the makers of idols go in confusion together.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 45:17 - But Israel is saved by the LORD
with everlasting salvation;
you shall not be put to shame or confounded
to all eternity.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 45:18 - For thus says the LORD,
who created the heavens
(he is God!),
who formed the earth and made it
(he established it;
he did not create it empty,
he formed it to be inhabited!):
“I am the LORD, and there is no other.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 45:19 - I did not speak in secret,
in a land of darkness;
I did not say to the offspring of Jacob,
‘Seek me in vain.’[fn]
I the LORD speak the truth;
I declare what is right.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 45:20 - “Assemble yourselves and come;
draw near together,
you survivors of the nations!
They have no knowledge
who carry about their wooden idols,
and keep on praying to a god
that cannot save.

let them take counsel together!
Who told this long ago?
Who declared it of old?
Was it not I, the LORD?
And there is no other god besides me,
a righteous God and a Savior;
there is none besides me.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 45:22 - “Turn to me and be saved,
all the ends of the earth!
For I am God, and there is no other.

from my mouth has gone out in righteousness
a word that shall not return:
‘To me every knee shall bow,
every tongue shall swear allegiance.’[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 45:24 - “Only in the LORD, it shall be said of me,
are righteousness and strength;
to him shall come and be ashamed
all who were incensed against him.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 45:25 - In the LORD all the offspring of Israel
shall be justified and shall glory.”
