1Yet now hear, O Ya’akov [Heal of God] my servant; and Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], whom I have chosen:
2Thus says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) that made youi, and formed youi from the womb, [which] will help youi; Fear not, O Ya’akov [Heal of God], my servant; and youi, Yeshurun [upright one], whom I have chosen.
3For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon youi seed, and my blessing upon youi offspring:
4And they shall spring up [as] among the grass, as willows by the water courses.
5One shall say, I [am] the Lord-Yehōvah’s [Messiah Pre-Incarnate]; and another shall call [himself] by the name of Ya’akov [Heal of God]; and another shall subscribe [with] his hand unto the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), and surname [himself] by the name of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God].
6Thus says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) the King of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], and his redeemer the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) Tz’va’ot [of the Heavenly Armies]; I [am] the first, and I [am] the last; and beside me [there is] no God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered].
7And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient people? and the things that are coming, and shall come, let them show unto them.
8Fear you2f not, neither be afraid: have not I told youi from that time, and have declared [it]? you2f [are] even my witnesses. Is there a God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] beside me? yes, [there is] no God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered]; I know not [any].
9They that make a graven image [are] all of them vanity; and their delectable things shall not profit; and they [are] their own witnesses; they see not, nor know; that they may be ashamed.
10Who has formed a god, or molten a graven image [that] is profitable for nothing?
11Behold, all his fellows shall be ashamed: and the workmen, they [are] of men: let them all be gathered together, let them stand up; [yet] they shall fear, [and] they shall be ashamed together.
12The smith with the tongs both works in the coals, and fashions it with hammers, and works it with the strength of his arms: yes, he is hungry, and his strength fails: he drink no water, and is faint.
13The carpenter stretches out [his] rule; he marks it out with a line; he fits it with planes, and he marks it out with the compass (go around, encircle; encompass), and makes it after the figure of a man, according to the beauty of a man; that it may remain in the house.
14He hews him down cedars, and takes the cypress and the oak, which he strengthens for himself among the trees of the forest: he plants an ash, and the rain does nourish [it].
15Then shall it be for a man to burn: for he will take thereof, and warm himself; yes, he kindles [it], and bakes bread; yes, he makes a god, and worships [it]; he makes it a graven image, and falls down thereto.
16He burns part thereof in the fire; with part thereof he eats flesh; he roasts roast, and is satisfied: yes, he warms [himself], and says, Aha, I am warm, I have seen the fire:
17And the residue (part that remains, the rest) thereof he makes a god, [even] his graven image: he falls down unto it, and worships [it], and prays unto it, and says, Deliver me; for youi [are] my god.
18They have not known nor understood: for he has shut their eyes, that they cannot see; [and] their hearts, that they cannot understand.
19And none considers in his heart, neither [is there] knowledge nor understanding to say, I have burned part of it in the fire; yes, also I have baked bread upon the coals thereof; I have roasted flesh, and eaten [it]: and shall I make the residue (part that remains, the rest) thereof an abomination? shall I fall down to the stock of a tree?
20He feeds on ashes: a deceived heart has turned him aside, that he cannot deliver his soul, nor say, [Is there] not a lie in my right hand?
21Remember these, O Ya’akov [Heal of God] and Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]; for youi [are] my servant: I have formed youi; youi [are] my servant: O Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], youi shall not be forgotten of me.
22I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, youri transgressions, and, as a cloud, youri sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed youi.
23Sing, O you2f heavens; for the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) has done [it]: shout, you2f lower parts of the earth: break forth into singing, you2f mountains, O forest, and every tree in it: for the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) has redeemed Ya’akov [Heal of God], and glorified himself in Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God].
24Thus says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), youri redeemer, and he that formed youi from the womb, I [am] the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) that makes all [things]; that stretches forth the heavens alone; that spreads abroad the earth by myself;
25That frustrates the tokens of the liars, and makes diviners mad; that turns wise [men] backward, and makes their knowledge foolish;
26That confirms the word of his servant, and performs the counsel of his messengers; that says to Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace], youi shall be inhabited; and to the cities of Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised], You2f shall be built, and I will raise up the decayed places thereof:
27That says to the deep, Be dry, and I will dry up youri rivers:
28That says of Koresh (Cyrus) [possess you the furnace], [He is] my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasure: even saying to Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace], youi shall be built; and to the temple, Your1s foundation shall be laid.
