Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 66:1 - This is what the LORD says:
“Heaven is my throne,
and the earth is my footstool.
Could you build me a temple as good as that?
Could you build me such a resting place?

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 66:2 - My hands have made both heaven and earth;
they and everything in them are mine.[fn]
I, the LORD, have spoken!
“I will bless those who have humble and contrite hearts,
who tremble at my word.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 66:3 - But those who choose their own ways—
delighting in their detestable sins—
will not have their offerings accepted.
When such people sacrifice a bull,
it is no more acceptable than a human sacrifice.
When they sacrifice a lamb,
it’s as though they had sacrificed a dog!
When they bring an offering of grain,
they might as well offer the blood of a pig.
When they burn frankincense,
it’s as if they had blessed an idol.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 66:4 - I will send them great trouble—
all the things they feared.
For when I called, they did not answer.
When I spoke, they did not listen.
They deliberately sinned before my very eyes
and chose to do what they know I despise.”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 66:5 - Hear this message from the LORD,
all you who tremble at his words:
“Your own people hate you
and throw you out for being loyal to my name.
‘Let the LORD be honored!’ they scoff.
‘Be joyful in him!’
But they will be put to shame.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 66:6 - What is all the commotion in the city?
What is that terrible noise from the Temple?
It is the voice of the LORD
taking vengeance against his enemies.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 66:7 - “Before the birth pains even begin,
Jerusalem gives birth to a son.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 66:8 - Who has ever seen anything as strange as this?
Who ever heard of such a thing?
Has a nation ever been born in a single day?
Has a country ever come forth in a mere moment?
But by the time Jerusalem’s[fn] birth pains begin,
her children will be born.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 66:9 - Would I ever bring this nation to the point of birth
and then not deliver it?” asks the LORD.
“No! I would never keep this nation from being born,”
says your God.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 66:10 - “Rejoice with Jerusalem!
Be glad with her, all you who love her
and all you who mourn for her.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 66:11 - Drink deeply of her glory
even as an infant drinks at its mother’s comforting breasts.”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 66:12 - This is what the LORD says:
“I will give Jerusalem a river of peace and prosperity.
The wealth of the nations will flow to her.
Her children will be nursed at her breasts,
carried in her arms, and held on her lap.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 66:13 - I will comfort you there in Jerusalem
as a mother comforts her child.”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 66:14 - When you see these things, your heart will rejoice.
You will flourish like the grass!
Everyone will see the LORD’s hand of blessing on his servants—
and his anger against his enemies.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 66:15 - See, the LORD is coming with fire,
and his swift chariots roar like a whirlwind.
He will bring punishment with the fury of his anger
and the flaming fire of his hot rebuke.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 66:16 - The LORD will punish the world by fire
and by his sword.
He will judge the earth,
and many will be killed by him.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 66:17 - “Those who ‘consecrate’ and ‘purify’ themselves in a sacred garden with its idol in the center—feasting on pork and rats and other detestable meats—will come to a terrible end,” says the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 66:18 - “I can see what they are doing, and I know what they are thinking. So I will gather all nations and peoples together, and they will see my glory.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 66:19 - I will perform a sign among them. And I will send those who survive to be messengers to the nations—to Tarshish, to the Libyans[fn] and Lydians[fn] (who are famous as archers), to Tubal and Greece,[fn] and to all the lands beyond the sea that have not heard of my fame or seen my glory. There they will declare my glory to the nations.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 66:20 - They will bring the remnant of your people back from every nation. They will bring them to my holy mountain in Jerusalem as an offering to the LORD. They will ride on horses, in chariots and wagons, and on mules and camels,” says the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 66:21 - “And I will appoint some of them to be my priests and Levites. I, the LORD, have spoken!

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 66:22 - “As surely as my new heavens and earth will remain,
so will you always be my people,
with a name that will never disappear,”
says the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 66:23 - “All humanity will come to worship me
from week to week
and from month to month.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 66:24 - And as they go out, they will see
the dead bodies of those who have rebelled against me.
For the worms that devour them will never die,
and the fire that burns them will never go out.
All who pass by
will view them with utter horror.”
