44:1 Yet now hear [H8085] , O Jacob [H3290] my servant [H5650] ; and Israel [H3478] , whom I have chosen [H977] :
44:2 Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] that made [H6213] thee, and formed [H3335] thee from the womb [H990] , [which] will help [H5826] thee; Fear [H3372] not, O Jacob [H3290] , my servant [H5650] ; and thou, Jesurun [H3484] , whom I have chosen [H977] .
44:3 For I will pour [H3332] water [H4325] upon him that is thirsty [H6771] , and floods [H5140] upon the dry ground [H3004] : I will pour [H3332] my spirit [H7307] upon thy seed [H2233] , and my blessing [H1293] upon thine offspring [H6631] :
44:4 And they shall spring up [H6779] [as] among [H996] the grass [H2682] , as willows [H6155] by the water [H4325] courses [H2988] .
44:5 One shall say [H559] , I [am] the LORD'S [H3068] ; and another shall call [H7121] [himself] by the name [H8034] of Jacob [H3290] ; and another shall subscribe [H3789] [with] his hand [H3027] unto the LORD [H3068] , and surname [H3655] [himself] by the name [H8034] of Israel [H3478] .
44:6 Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] the King [H4428] of Israel [H3478] , and his redeemer [H1350] the LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] ; I [am] the first [H7223] , and I [am] the last [H314] ; and beside [H1107] me [there is] no God [H430] .
44:7 And who, as I, shall call [H7121] , and shall declare [H5046] it, and set it in order [H6186] for me, since I appointed [H7760] the ancient [H5769] people [H5971] ? and the things that are coming [H857] , and shall come [H935] , let them shew [H5046] unto them.
44:8 Fear [H6342] ye not, neither be afraid [H7297] [H7297] : have not I told [H8085] thee from that time [H227] , and have declared [H5046] [it]? ye [are] even my witnesses [H5707] . Is there [H3426] a God [H433] beside [H1107] me? yea, [there is] no God [H6697] ; I know [H3045] not [any].(God; I: Heb. rock, etc)
44:9 They that make [H3335] a graven image [H6459] [are] all of them vanity [H8414] ; and their delectable things [H2530] shall not profit [H3276] ; and they [are] their own witnesses [H5707] ; they see [H7200] not, nor know [H3045] ; that they may be ashamed [H954] .(delectable: Heb. desirable)
44:10 Who hath formed [H3335] a god [H410] , or molten [H5258] a graven image [H6459] [that] is profitable [H3276] for nothing [H1115] ?
44:11 Behold, all his fellows [H2270] shall be ashamed [H954] : and the workmen [H2796] , they [are] of men [H120] : let them all be gathered together [H6908] , let them stand up [H5975] ; [yet] they shall fear [H6342] , [and] they shall be ashamed [H954] together [H3162] .
44:12 The smith [H1270] [H2796] with the tongs [H4621] both worketh [H6466] in the coals [H6352] , and fashioneth [H3335] it with hammers [H4717] , and worketh [H6466] it with the strength [H3581] of his arms [H2220] : yea, he is hungry [H7457] , and his strength [H3581] faileth [H369] : he drinketh [H8354] no water [H4325] , and is faint [H3286] .(with the tongs: or, with an axe)
44:13 The carpenter [H2796] [H6086] stretcheth out [H5186] [his] rule [H6957] ; he marketh it out [H8388] with a line [H8279] ; he fitteth [H6213] it with planes [H4741] , and he marketh it out [H8388] with the compass [H4230] , and maketh [H6213] it after the figure [H8403] of a man [H376] , according to the beauty [H8597] of a man [H120] ; that it may remain [H3427] in the house [H1004] .
44:14 He heweth him down [H3772] cedars [H730] , and taketh [H3947] the cypress [H8645] and the oak [H437] , which he strengtheneth [H553] for himself among the trees [H6086] of the forest [H3293] : he planteth [H5193] an ash [H766] , and the rain [H1653] doth nourish [H1431] [it].(strengtheneth: or, taketh courage)
44:15 Then shall it be for a man [H120] to burn [H1197] : for he will take [H3947] thereof, and warm [H2552] himself; yea, he kindleth [H5400] [it], and baketh [H644] bread [H3899] ; yea, he maketh [H6466] a god [H410] , and worshippeth [H7812] [it]; he maketh [H6213] it a graven image [H6459] , and falleth down [H5456] thereto.
44:16 He burneth [H8313] part [H2677] thereof in [H1119] the fire [H784] ; with part [H2677] thereof he eateth [H398] flesh [H1320] ; he roasteth [H6740] roast [H6748] , and is satisfied [H7646] : yea, he warmeth [H2552] [himself], and saith [H559] , Aha [H1889] , I am warm [H2552] , I have seen [H7200] the fire [H217] :
44:17 And the residue [H7611] thereof he maketh [H6213] a god [H410] , [even] his graven image [H6459] : he falleth down [H5456] unto it, and worshippeth [H7812] [it], and prayeth [H6419] unto it, and saith [H559] , Deliver [H5337] me; for thou [art] my god [H410] .
44:18 They have not known [H3045] nor understood [H995] : for he hath shut [H2902] their eyes [H5869] , that they cannot see [H7200] ; [and] their hearts [H3826] , that they cannot understand [H7919] .(shut: Heb. daubed)
44:19 And none considereth [H7725] in his heart [H3820] , neither [is there] knowledge [H1847] nor understanding [H8394] to say [H559] , I have burned [H8313] part [H2677] of it in [H1119] the fire [H784] ; yea, also I have baked [H644] bread [H3899] upon the coals [H1513] thereof; I have roasted [H6740] flesh [H1320] , and eaten [H398] [it]: and shall I make [H6213] the residue [H3499] thereof an abomination [H8441] ? shall I fall down [H5456] to the stock [H944] of a tree [H6086] ?(considereth: Heb. setteth to his heart)(the stock: Heb. that which comes of a tree?)
44:20 He feedeth [H7462] on ashes [H665] : a deceived [H2048] heart [H3820] hath turned him aside [H5186] , that he cannot deliver [H5337] his soul [H5315] , nor say [H559] , [Is there] not a lie [H8267] in my right hand [H3225] ?
44:21 Remember [H2142] these, O Jacob [H3290] and Israel [H3478] ; for thou [art] my servant [H5650] : I have formed [H3335] thee; thou [art] my servant [H5650] : O Israel [H3478] , thou shalt not be forgotten [H5382] of me.
44:22 I have blotted out [H4229] , as a thick cloud [H5645] , thy transgressions [H6588] , and, as a cloud [H6051] , thy sins [H2403] : return [H7725] unto me; for I have redeemed [H1350] thee.
44:23 Sing [H7442] , O ye heavens [H8064] ; for the LORD [H3068] hath done [H6213] [it]: shout [H7321] , ye lower parts [H8482] of the earth [H776] : break forth [H6476] into singing [H7440] , ye mountains [H2022] , O forest [H3293] , and every tree [H6086] therein: for the LORD [H3068] hath redeemed [H1350] Jacob [H3290] , and glorified [H6286] himself in Israel [H3478] .
44:24 Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] , thy redeemer [H1350] , and he that formed [H3335] thee from the womb [H990] , I [am] the LORD [H3068] that maketh [H6213] all [things]; that stretcheth forth [H5186] the heavens [H8064] alone; that spreadeth abroad [H7554] the earth [H776] by myself;
44:25 That frustrateth [H6565] the tokens [H226] of the liars [H907] , and maketh diviners [H7080] mad [H1984] ; that turneth [H7725] wise [H2450] [men] backward [H268] , and maketh their knowledge [H1847] foolish [H5528] ;
44:26 That confirmeth [H6965] the word [H1697] of his servant [H5650] , and performeth [H7999] the counsel [H6098] of his messengers [H4397] ; that saith [H559] to Jerusalem [H3389] , Thou shalt be inhabited [H3427] ; and to the cities [H5892] of Judah [H3063] , Ye shall be built [H1129] , and I will raise up [H6965] the decayed places [H2723] thereof:(decayed: Heb. wastes)
44:27 That saith [H559] to the deep [H6683] , Be dry [H2717] , and I will dry up [H3001] thy rivers [H5104] :
44:28 That saith [H559] of Cyrus [H3566] , [He is] my shepherd [H7462] , and shall perform [H7999] all my pleasure [H2656] : even saying [H559] to Jerusalem [H3389] , Thou shalt be built [H1129] ; and to the temple [H1964] , Thy foundation shall be laid [H3245] .
