Isaiah 40:27-31 World English Bible (WEB)

27 Why do you say, Jacob,
    and speak, Israel,
    “My way is hidden from Yahweh,
    and the justice due me is disregarded by my God?”
28 Haven’t you known?
    Haven’t you heard?
    The everlasting God, Yahweh,
    The Creator of the ends of the earth, doesn’t faint.
    He isn’t weary.
    His understanding is unsearchable.
29 He gives power to the weak.
    He increases the strength of him who has no might.
30 Even the youths faint and get weary,
    and the young men utterly fall;
31     But those who wait for Yahweh will renew their strength.
    They will mount up with wings like eagles.
    They will run, and not be weary.
    They will walk, and not faint.

Isaiah 40:27-31 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

27 Why do you say, O Jacob, and assert, O Israel,
“My way is hidden from the Lord,
And the justice due me [a]escapes the notice of my God”?
28 Do you not know? Have you not heard?
The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth
Does not become weary or tired.
His understanding is inscrutable.
29 He gives strength to the weary,
And to him who lacks might He increases power.
30 Though youths grow weary and tired,
And vigorous young men stumble badly,
31 Yet those who [b]wait for the Lord
Will gain new strength;
They will [c]mount up with [d]wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired,
They will walk and not become weary.
