Isaiah 41-53New King James Version (NKJV)
Israel Assured of God’s Help
41 “Keep silence before Me, O coastlands,
2 “Who raised up one from the east?
5 The coastlands saw it and feared,
8 “But you, Israel, are My servant,
11 “Behold, all those who were incensed against you
14 “Fear not, you worm Jacob,
17 “The poor and needy seek water, but there is none,
The Futility of Idols
21 “Present your case,” says the Lord.
25 “I have raised up one from the north,
The Servant of the Lord
42 “Behold! My Servant whom I uphold,
5 Thus says God the Lord,
Praise to the Lord
10 Sing to the Lord a new song,
Promise of the Lord’s Help
14 “I have held My peace a long time,
18 “Hear, you deaf;
Israel’s Obstinate Disobedience
21 The Lord is well pleased for His righteousness’ sake;
23 Who among you will give ear to this?
The Redeemer of Israel
43 But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob,
8 Bring out the blind people who have eyes,
14 Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer,
16 Thus says the Lord, who makes a way in the sea
Pleading with Unfaithful Israel
22 “But you have not called upon Me, O Jacob;
25 “I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake;
God’s Blessing on Israel
44 “Yet hear now, O Jacob My servant,
There Is No Other God
6 “Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel,
Idolatry Is Foolishness
9 Those who make an image, all of them are useless,
12 The blacksmith with the tongs works one in the coals,
13 The craftsman stretches out his rule,
15 Then it shall be for a man to burn,
18 They do not know nor understand;
Israel Is Not Forgotten
21 “Remember these, O Jacob,
23 Sing, O heavens, for the Lord has done it!
Judah Will Be Restored
24 Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer,
Cyrus, God’s Instrument
45 “Thus says the Lord to His anointed,
8 “Rain down, you heavens, from above,
9 “Woe to him who strives with his Maker!
11 Thus says the Lord,
The Lord, the Only Savior
14 Thus says the Lord:
“The labor of Egypt and merchandise of Cush
18 For thus says the Lord,
20 “Assemble yourselves and come;
22 “Look to Me, and be saved,
Dead Idols and the Living God
46 Bel bows down, Nebo stoops;
3 “Listen to Me, O house of Jacob,
5 “To whom will you liken Me, and make Me equal
8 “Remember this, and show yourselves men;
12 “Listen to Me, you stubborn-hearted,
The Humiliation of Babylon
47 “Come down and sit in the dust,
4 As for our Redeemer, the Lord of hosts is His name,
5 “Sit in silence, and go into darkness,
8 “Therefore hear this now, you who are given to pleasures,
10 “For you have trusted in your wickedness;
12 “Stand now with your enchantments
Israel Refined for God’s Glory
48 “Hear this, O house of Jacob,
3 “I have declared the former things from the beginning;
6 “You have heard;
9 “For My name’s sake I will defer My anger,
God’s Ancient Plan to Redeem Israel
12 “Listen to Me, O Jacob,
14 “All of you, assemble yourselves, and hear!
17 Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer,
20 Go forth from Babylon!
22 “There is no peace,” says the Lord, “for the wicked.”
The Servant, the Light to the Gentiles
49 “Listen, O coastlands, to Me,
3 “And He said to me,
5 “And now the Lord says,
7 Thus says the Lord,
8 Thus says the Lord:
“In an acceptable time I have heard You,
“They shall feed along the roads,
13 Sing, O heavens!
God Will Remember Zion
14 But Zion said, “The Lord has forsaken me,
19 “For your waste and desolate places,
22 Thus says the Lord God:
“Behold, I will lift My hand in an oath to the nations,
24 Shall the prey be taken from the mighty,
25 But thus says the Lord:
“Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away,
The Servant, Israel’s Hope
50 Thus says the Lord:
“Where is the certificate of your mother’s divorce,
4 “The Lord God has given Me
7 “For the Lord God will help Me;
10 “Who among you fears the Lord?
The Lord Comforts Zion
51 “Listen to Me, you who follow after righteousness,
3 For the Lord will comfort Zion,
4 “Listen to Me, My people;
7 “Listen to Me, you who know righteousness,
9 Awake, awake, put on strength,
10 Are You not the One who dried up the sea,
12 “I, even I, am He who comforts you.
God’s Fury Removed
17 Awake, awake!
21 Therefore please hear this, you afflicted,
God Redeems Jerusalem
52 Awake, awake!
3 For thus says the Lord:
“You have sold yourselves for nothing,
4 For thus says the Lord God:
“My people went down at first
7 How beautiful upon the mountains
11 Depart! Depart! Go out from there,
The Sin-Bearing Servant
13 Behold, My Servant shall deal prudently;
53 Who has believed our report?
4 Surely He has borne our griefs
7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
10 Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise Him;
