The Lord Redeems Israel

21 Remember these things, O Jacob,
    and Israel, for you are (A)my servant;
I formed you; you are my servant;
    (B)O Israel, you will not be forgotten by me.
22 (C)I have blotted out your transgressions like a cloud
    and your sins like mist;
return to me, for I have redeemed you.

23 (D)Sing, O heavens, for the Lord has done it;
    shout, O (E)depths of the earth;
break forth into singing, O mountains,
    O forest, and every tree in it!
For the Lord has redeemed Jacob,
    (F)and will be glorified[a] in Israel.

24 Thus says the Lord, (G)your Redeemer,
    (H)who formed you from the womb:
(I)“I am the Lord, who made all things,
    (J)who alone stretched out the heavens,
    who spread out the earth by myself,
25 who frustrates the signs of liars
    and makes fools of diviners,
(K)who turns wise men back
    and makes their knowledge foolish,
26 (L)who confirms the word of his servant
    and fulfills the counsel of his messengers,
who says of Jerusalem, ‘She shall be inhabited,’
    (M)and of the cities of Judah, ‘They shall be built,
    and I will raise up their ruins’;
27 (N)who says to the deep, ‘Be dry;
    I will dry up your rivers’;
28 who says of (O)Cyrus, ‘He is (P)my shepherd,
    and he shall fulfill all my purpose’;
saying of Jerusalem, ‘She shall be built,’
    (Q)and of the temple, ‘Your foundation shall be laid.’”
