Let us come near together for judgment.

As driven stubble to his bow?

By the way that he had not gone with his feet?

And with the last I am He.’ ”

The descendants of Abraham My friend.

‘You are My servant,

Shall be ashamed and disgraced;
They shall be as nothing,
And those who strive with you shall perish.

You shall thresh the mountains and beat them small,
And make the hills like chaff.

And the whirlwind shall scatter them;

Their tongues fail for thirst.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 41:18 - I will open rivers in desolate heights,
And fountains in the midst of the valleys;
I will make the wilderness a pool of water,
And the dry land springs of water.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 41:19 - I will plant in the wilderness the cedar and the acacia tree,
The myrtle and the oil tree;
I will set in the desert the cypress tree and the pine
And the box tree together,

And consider and understand together,
That the hand of the LORD has done this,
And the Holy One of Israel has created it.

He who chooses you is an abomination.

Surely there is no one who declares,
Surely there is no one who hears your words.

‘Look, there they are!’
And I will give to Jerusalem one who brings good tidings.

Who, when I asked of them, could answer a word.

Their works are nothing;
Their molded images are wind and confusion.
