Isaiah 42:14-17 World English Bible (WEB)

14 “I have been silent a long time.
    I have been quiet and restrained myself.
    Now I will cry out like a travailing woman. I will both gasp and pant.
15 I will destroy mountains and hills,
    and dry up all their herbs.
    I will make the rivers islands,
    and will dry up the pools.
16 I will bring the blind by a way that they don’t know.
    I will lead them in paths that they don’t know.
    I will make darkness light before them,
    and crooked places straight.
    I will do these things,
    and I will not forsake them.

17 “Those who trust in engraved images,
    who tell molten images,
    ‘You are our gods’
    will be turned back.
    They will be utterly disappointed.

Isaiah 42:14-17 New International Version (NIV)

14 “For a long time I have kept silent,
    I have been quiet and held myself back.
But now, like a woman in childbirth,
    I cry out, I gasp and pant.
15 I will lay waste the mountains and hills
    and dry up all their vegetation;
I will turn rivers into islands
    and dry up the pools.
16 I will lead the blind by ways they have not known,
    along unfamiliar paths I will guide them;
I will turn the darkness into light before them
    and make the rough places smooth.
These are the things I will do;
    I will not forsake them.
17 But those who trust in idols,
    who say to images, ‘You are our gods,’
    will be turned back in utter shame.
