Isaiah 45:2-4 The Passion Translation (TPT)

‘I will march out in front of you and level every obstacle.[a]
    I will shatter to pieces bronze doors
    and slice through iron bars.
I will give you hidden treasures from dark, concealed places
    and wealth waiting in secret sites
    so that you recognize me, for it is I, Yahweh,
    the God of Israel, who calls you by your name![b]
For the sake of my servant Jacob, and Israel my chosen,
    I call you by your name and give you a title of honor.
    But you don’t even know me.


  1. Isaiah 45:2 Or “every swelling,” a possible metaphor for what looms up in front of you.
  2. Isaiah 45:3 The Hebrew wording allows for this possible translation: “I, Yahweh, who calls you by your name, the gods (judges or mighty ones) of Israel.” The word for “gods” is elohim (plural) and is translated in some verses as “judges.” See Ps. 82:1, 6.
