KJV ISA48 with Strong's Hebrew/GreekISA47.htm ISA49.htm
48:1 Hear [H8085] ye this, O house [H1004] of Jacob [H3290] , which are called [H7121] by the name [H8034] of Israel [H3478] , and are come forth [H3318] out of the waters [H4325] of Judah [H3063] , which swear [H7650] by the name [H8034] of the LORD [H3068] , and make mention [H2142] of the God [H430] of Israel [H3478] , [but] not in truth [H571] , nor in righteousness [H6666] .
48:2 For they call [H7121] themselves of the holy [H6944] city [H5892] , and stay [H5564] themselves upon the God [H430] of Israel [H3478] ; The LORD [H3068] of hosts [H6635] [is] his name [H8034] .
48:3 I have declared [H5046] the former things [H7223] from the beginning [H227] ; and they went forth [H3318] out of my mouth [H6310] , and I shewed [H8085] them; I did [H6213] [them] suddenly [H6597] , and they came to pass [H935] .
48:4 Because I knew [H1847] that thou [art] obstinate [H7186] , and thy neck [H6203] [is] an iron [H1270] sinew [H1517] , and thy brow [H4696] brass [H5154] ;(obstinate: Heb. hard)
48:5 I have even from the beginning [H227] declared [H5046] [it] to thee; before it came to pass [H935] I shewed [H8085] [it] thee: lest thou shouldest say [H559] , Mine idol [H6090] hath done [H6213] them, and my graven image [H6459] , and my molten image [H5262] , hath commanded [H6680] them.
48:6 Thou hast heard [H8085] , see [H2372] all this; and will not ye declare [H5046] [it]? I have shewed [H8085] thee new things [H2319] from this time [H6258] , even hidden things [H5341] , and thou didst not know [H3045] them.
48:7 They are created [H1254] now, and not from the beginning; even before [H6440] the day [H3117] when thou heardest [H8085] them not; lest thou shouldest say [H559] , Behold, I knew [H3045] them.
48:8 Yea, thou heardest [H8085] not; yea, thou knewest [H3045] not; yea, from that time [that] thine ear [H241] was not opened [H6605] : for I knew [H3045] that thou wouldest deal very [H898] treacherously [H898] , and wast called [H7121] a transgressor [H6586] from the womb [H990] .
48:9 For my name's [H8034] sake will I defer [H748] mine anger [H639] , and for my praise [H8416] will I refrain [H2413] for thee, that I cut thee not off [H3772] .
48:10 Behold, I have refined [H6884] thee, but not with silver [H3701] ; I have chosen [H977] thee in the furnace [H3564] of affliction [H6040] .(with: or, for silver)
48:11 For mine own sake, [even] for mine own sake, will I do [H6213] [it]: for how should [my name] be polluted [H2490] ? and I will not give [H5414] my glory [H3519] unto another [H312] .
48:12 Hearken [H8085] unto me, O Jacob [H3290] and Israel [H3478] , my called [H7121] ; I [am] he; I [am] the first [H7223] , I also [am] the last [H314] .
48:13 Mine hand [H3027] also hath laid the foundation [H3245] of the earth [H776] , and my right hand [H3225] hath spanned [H2946] the heavens [H8064] : [when] I call [H7121] unto them, they stand up [H5975] together [H3162] .(my: or, the palm of my right hand hath spread out)
48:14 All ye, assemble [H6908] yourselves, and hear [H8085] ; which among them hath declared [H5046] these [things]? The LORD [H3068] hath loved [H157] him: he will do [H6213] his pleasure [H2656] on Babylon [H894] , and his arm [H2220] [shall be on] the Chaldeans [H3778] .
48:15 I, [even] I, have spoken [H1696] ; yea, I have called [H7121] him: I have brought [H935] him, and he shall make his way [H1870] prosperous [H6743] .
48:16 Come [H7126] ye near [H7126] unto me, hear [H8085] ye this; I have not spoken [H1696] in secret [H5643] from the beginning [H7218] ; from the time [H6256] that it was, there [am] I: and now the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] , and his Spirit [H7307] , hath sent [H7971] me.
48:17 Thus saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] , thy Redeemer [H1350] , the Holy One [H6918] of Israel [H3478] ; I [am] the LORD [H3068] thy God [H430] which teacheth [H3925] thee to profit [H3276] , which leadeth [H1869] thee by the way [H1870] [that] thou shouldest go [H3212] .
48:18 O that [H3863] thou hadst hearkened [H7181] to my commandments [H4687] ! then had thy peace [H7965] been as a river [H5104] , and thy righteousness [H6666] as the waves [H1530] of the sea [H3220] :
48:19 Thy seed [H2233] also had been as the sand [H2344] , and the offspring [H6631] of thy bowels [H4578] like the gravel [H4579] thereof; his name [H8034] should not have been cut off [H3772] nor destroyed [H8045] from before [H6440] me.
48:20 Go ye forth [H3318] of Babylon [H894] , flee [H1272] ye from the Chaldeans [H3778] , with a voice [H6963] of singing [H7440] declare [H5046] ye, tell [H8085] this, utter [H3318] it [even] to the end [H7097] of the earth [H776] ; say [H559] ye, The LORD [H3068] hath redeemed [H1350] his servant [H5650] Jacob [H3290] .
48:21 And they thirsted [H6770] not [when] he led [H3212] them through the deserts [H2723] : he caused the waters [H4325] to flow [H5140] out of the rock [H6697] for them: he clave [H1234] the rock [H6697] also, and the waters [H4325] gushed out [H2100] .
48:22 [There is] no peace [H7965] , saith [H559] the LORD [H3068] , unto the wicked [H7563] .
