Isaiah 40:21-23 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Fear Not

21 Don’t you realize that God is the Creator?
    Don’t you hear the truth?[a]
    Haven’t you been told this from the beginning?
    Haven’t you understood this
    since he laid a firm foundation for the earth?[b]
22 He sits enthroned high above the circle of the earth;
    to him the people of earth are like grasshoppers!
    He stretches out the heavens like a curtain,
    spreading it open like a tent to live in.[c]
23 He reduces rulers to nothing
    and makes the elite of the earth as nothing at all.


  1. Isaiah 40:21 Or “Do you not know? Do you not hear?” These two questions (imperfect tense) are best seen as invitations rather than a surprise over their ignorance. See Young, Book of Isaiah, vol. 3, 40–66.
  2. Isaiah 40:21 See Ps. 24:2.
  3. Isaiah 40:22 See Ex. 25:8.
