Isaiah 44:3-5 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

“I will pour water for thirsty people, and streams will flow through the desert. I will pour my Spirit on your children, and I will bless[a] your family. They will sprout like grass in the spring and grow like trees by streams of water.

“One man will call himself, ‘I am the Lord’s.’ Another will use the name, ‘Jacob.’ Another man will sign his name as ‘The Lord’s Hand.’ And another will use the name, ‘Israel.’”


  1. Isaiah 44:3 bless This is a wordplay. This Hebrew word sounds like the word meaning “pool.”

Isaiah 44:3-5 New International Version (NIV)

For I will pour water on the thirsty land,
    and streams on the dry ground;
I will pour out my Spirit on your offspring,
    and my blessing on your descendants.
They will spring up like grass in a meadow,
    like poplar trees by flowing streams.
Some will say, ‘I belong to the Lord’;
    others will call themselves by the name of Jacob;
still others will write on their hand, ‘The Lord’s,’
    and will take the name Israel.
