Isaiah 41
1Keep silence before me, O islands; and let the people renew [their] strength: let them come near; then let them speak: let us come near together to judgment.
2Who raised up the righteous [man] from the east, called him to his foot, gave the nations before him, and made [him] rule over kings? he gave [them] as the dust to his sword, [and] as driven stubble to his bow.
3He pursued them, [and] passed safely; [even] by the way [that] he had not gone with his feet.
4Who has wrought and done [it], calling the generations from the beginning? I the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), the first, and with the last; I [am] he.
5The isles saw [it], and feared; the ends of the earth were afraid, drew near, and came.
6They helped everyone his neighbour; and [everyone] said to his brother, Be of good courage.
7So the carpenter encouraged the goldsmith, [and] he that smoothes [with] the hammer him that struck the anvil, saying, It [is] ready for the soldering: and he fastened it with nails, [that] it should not be moved.
8But youi, Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], [are] my servant, Ya’akov [Heal of God] whom I have chosen, the seed of Avraham [Exalted Father] my friend.
9 [youi] whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called youi from the chief men thereof, and said unto youi, youi [are] my servant; I have chosen youi, and not cast youi away.
10Fear youi not; for I [am] with youi: be not dismayed; for I [am] youri God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered]: I will strengthen youi; yes, I will help youi; yes, I will uphold youi with the right hand of my righteousness.
11Behold, all they that were incensed against youi shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with youi shall perish.
12youi shall seek them, and shall not find them, [even] them that contended with youi: they that war against youi shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nothing.
13For I the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) youi God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] will hold youri right hand, saying unto youi, Fear not; I will help youi.
14Fear not, youi worm Ya’akov [Heal of God], [and] you2f men of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]; I will help youi, says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), and youi redeemer, the Holy One of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God].
15Behold, I will make youi a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: youi shall thresh the mountains, and beat [them] small, and shall make the hills as chaff.
16Youi shall fan (a fork-shaped tool to throw grain in the air, to let he wind separate the wheat from the chaff) them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind shall scatter them: and youi shall rejoice in the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), [and] shall glory in the Holy One of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God].
17 [When] the poor and needy seek water, and [there is] none, [and] their tongue fails for thirst, I the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) will hear them, I the God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] will not forsake them.
18I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.
19I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree, [and] the pine, and the box tree together:
20That they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) has done this, and the Holy One of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God] has created it.
21Produce your cause, says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate); bring forth your strong [reasons], says the King of Ya’akov [Heal of God].
22Let them bring [them] forth, and show us what shall happen: let them show the former things, what they [be], that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare us things for to come.
23Show the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that you2f [are] gods: yes, do good, or do evil, that we may be dismayed, and behold [it] together.
24Behold, you2f [are] of nothing, and your work of nothing: an abomination [is he that] chooses you.
25I have raised up [one] from the north, and he shall come: from the rising of the sun shall he call upon my name: and he shall come upon princes as [upon] mortar, and as the potter treads clay.
26Who has declared from the beginning, that we may know? and formerly, that we may say, [He is] righteous? yes, [there is] none that shows, yes, [there is] none that declares, yes, [there is] none that hears your words.
27The first [shall say] to Tziyon [parched place], Behold, behold them: and I will give to Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace] one that brings good tidings.
28For I beheld, and [there was] no man; even among them, and [there was] no counselor, that, when I asked of them, could answer a word.
29Behold, they [are] all vanity; their works [are] nothing: their molten images [are] wind and confusion.
