14The LORD your redeemer, the holy one of Israel, says, For your sake, I have sent an army#Heb lacks an army. to Babylon, and brought down all the bars, turning the Chaldeans’ singing into a lament.#Heb uncertain 15I am the LORD, your holy one, Israel’s creator, your king! 16The LORD says—who makes a way in the sea and a path in the mighty waters, 17who brings out chariot and horse, army and battalion; they will lie down together and will not rise; they will be extinguished, extinguished like a wick. 18Don’t remember the prior things; don’t ponder ancient history. 19Look! I’m doing a new thing; now it sprouts up; don’t you recognize it? I’m making a way in the desert, paths#DSS (1QIsaa); MT streams in the wilderness.
