Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:1 - “But now listen, O Jacob, My servant,
And Israel, whom I have chosen:

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:2 - Thus says the LORD who made you
And formed you from the womb, who will help you,
‘Do not fear, O Jacob My servant;
And you Jeshurun whom I have chosen.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:3 - ‘For I will pour out water on [fn]the thirsty land
And streams on the dry ground;
I will pour out My Spirit on your offspring
And My blessing on your descendants;

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:4 - And they will spring up [fn]among the grass
Like poplars by streams of water.’

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:5 - “This one will say, ‘I am the LORDS’;
And that one [fn]will call on the name of Jacob;
And another will write [fn]on his hand, ‘Belonging to the LORD,’
And will name Israel’s name with honor.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:6 - “Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the LORD of hosts:
‘I am the first and I am the last,
And there is no God besides Me.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:7 - ‘Who is like Me? Let him proclaim and declare it;
Yes, let him recount it to Me in order,
[fn]From the time that I established the ancient [fn]nation.
And let them declare to them the things that are coming
And the events that are going to take place.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:8 - ‘Do not tremble and do not be afraid;
Have I not long since announced it to you and declared it?
And you are My witnesses.
Is there any God besides Me,
Or is there any other Rock?
I know of none.’”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:9 - Those who fashion [fn]a graven image are all of them futile, and their precious things are of no profit; even their own witnesses fail to see or know, so that they will be put to shame.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:10 - Who has fashioned a god or cast [fn]an idol to no profit?

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:11 - Behold, all his companions will be put to shame, for the craftsmen themselves are mere men. Let them all assemble themselves, let them stand up, let them tremble, let them together be put to shame.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:12 - The man shapes iron into a cutting tool and does his work over the coals, [fn]fashioning it with hammers and working it with his strong arm. He also gets hungry and [fn]his strength fails; he drinks no water and becomes weary.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:13 - Another shapes wood, he extends a measuring line; he outlines it with red chalk. He works it with planes and outlines it with a compass, and makes it like the form of a man, like the beauty of man, so that it may sit in a house.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:14 - Surely he cuts cedars for himself, and takes a [fn]cypress or an oak and [fn]raises it for himself among the trees of the forest. He plants a fir, and the rain makes it grow.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:15 - Then it becomes something for a man to burn, so he takes one of them and warms himself; he also makes a fire to bake bread. He also makes a god and worships it; he makes it a graven image and falls down before it.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:16 - Half of it he burns in the fire; over this half he eats meat as he roasts a roast and is satisfied. He also warms himself and says, “Aha! I am warm, I have seen the fire.”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:17 - But the rest of it he makes into a god, his graven image. He falls down before it and worships; he also prays to it and says, “Deliver me, for you are my god.”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:18 - They do not know, nor do they understand, for He has smeared over their eyes so that they cannot see and their hearts so that they cannot comprehend.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:19 - No one [fn]recalls, nor is there knowledge or understanding to say, “I have burned half of it in the fire and also have baked bread over its coals. I roast meat and eat it. Then [fn]I make the rest of it into an abomination, [fn]I fall down before a block of wood!”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:20 - He [fn]feeds on ashes; a deceived heart has turned him aside. And he cannot deliver [fn]himself, nor say, “Is there not a lie in my right hand?”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:21 - “Remember these things, O Jacob,
And Israel, for you are My servant;
I have formed you, you are My servant,
O Israel, you will not be forgotten by Me.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:22 - “I have wiped out your transgressions like a thick cloud
And your sins like a [fn]heavy mist.
Return to Me, for I have redeemed you.”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:23 - Shout for joy, O heavens, for the LORD has done it!
Shout joyfully, you lower parts of the earth;
Break forth into a shout of joy, you mountains,
O forest, and every tree in it;
For the LORD has redeemed Jacob
And in Israel He shows forth His glory.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:24 - Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, and the one who formed you from the womb,
“I, the LORD, am the maker of all things,
Stretching out the heavens by Myself
And spreading out the earth [fn]all alone,

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:25 - Causing the [fn]omens of boasters to fail,
[fn]Making fools out of diviners,
Causing wise men to draw back
And [fn]turning their knowledge into foolishness,

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:26 - Confirming the word of His servant
And [fn]performing the purpose of His messengers.
It is I who says of Jerusalem, ‘She shall be inhabited!’
And of the cities of Judah, ‘They shall be built.’
And I will raise up her ruins again.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:27 - It is I who says to the depth of the sea, ‘Be dried up!’
And I will make your rivers dry.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 44:28 - It is I who says of Cyrus, ‘He is My shepherd!
And he will perform all My desire.’
And [fn]he declares of Jerusalem, ‘She will be built,’
And of the temple, ‘[fn]Your foundation will be laid.’”
