Isaiah 41-48 New 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
15 Truly You are God, who hide Yourself,
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 [ab]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 [ak]defer My anger,
God’s Ancient Plan to Redeem Israel
12 “Listen to Me, O Jacob,
14 “All of you, assemble yourselves, and hear!
16 “Come near to Me, hear this:
17 Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer,
20 Go forth from Babylon!
22 “There is no peace,” says the Lord, “for the wicked.”
