Isaiah 12 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

A Song of Praise to God

12 At that time you will say,
“I praise you, Lord!
    You have been angry with me,
but don’t be angry with me now.
    Show your love to me.
God is the one who saves me.
    I trust him, and I am not afraid.
The Lord Yah is my strength.
    He saves me, and I sing songs of praise about him.[a]

You people will get your water from the spring of salvation.
    Then you will be happy.
At that time you will say,
    “Praise the Lord and call out his name!
Tell everyone what he has done
    and how wonderful he is.”
Sing songs of praise about the Lord,
    because he has done great things.
Spread this news about God throughout the whole world.
    Let all people know these things.
People of Zion, shout about these things!
    The Holy One of Israel is with you in a powerful way.
    So sing and be happy!


  1. Isaiah 12:2 The Lord Yah … him Literally, “Yah, Yahweh is my strength and praise. And he becomes my salvation.” This comes from the victory song of Moses in Ex. 15:2.

Isaiah 12 New International Version (NIV)

Songs of Praise

12 In that day you will say:

“I will praise you, Lord.
    Although you were angry with me,
your anger has turned away
    and you have comforted me.
Surely God is my salvation;
    I will trust and not be afraid.
The Lord, the Lord himself, is my strength and my defense[a];
    he has become my salvation.
With joy you will draw water
    from the wells of salvation.

In that day you will say:

“Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name;
    make known among the nations what he has done,
    and proclaim that his name is exalted.
Sing to the Lord, for he has done glorious things;
    let this be known to all the world.
Shout aloud and sing for joy, people of Zion,
    for great is the Holy One of Israel among you.
