Yeshayahu (Book of Isaiah), Chapter 43

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 But now thus saith HaShem that created thee, O Jacob, and He that formed thee, O Israel: Fear not, for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name, thou art Mine.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee, and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee; when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned, neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 For I am HaShem thy G-d, The Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour; I have given Egypt as thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 Since thou art precious in My sight, and honourable, and I have loved thee; therefore will I give men for thee, and peoples for thy life.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 Fear not, for I am with thee; I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 I will say to the north: 'Give up,' and to the south: 'Keep not back, bring My sons from far, and My daughters from the end of the earth;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 Every one that is called by My name, and whom I have created for My glory, I have formed him, yea, I have made him.'

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 The blind people that have eyes shall be brought forth, and the deaf that have ears.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 All the nations are gathered together, and the peoples are assembled; who among them can declare this, and announce to us former things? Let them bring their witnesses, that they may be justified; and let them hear, and say: 'It is truth.'

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 Ye are My witnesses, saith HaShem, and My servant whom I have chosen; that ye may know and believe Me, and understand that I am He; before Me there was no G-d formed, neither shall any be after Me.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 I, even I, am HaShem; and beside Me there is no saviour.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 I have declared, and I have saved, and I have announced, and there was no strange god among you; therefore ye are My witnesses, saith HaShem, and I am G-d.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 Yea, since the day was I am He, and there is none that can deliver out of My hand; I will work, and who can reverse it?

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'14 Thus saith HaShem, your Redeemer, The Holy One of Israel: For your sake I have sent to Babylon, and I will bring down all of them as fugitives, even the Chaldeans, in the ships of their shouting.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'15 I am HaShem, your Holy One, the Creator of Israel, your King.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000F-QINU`"'16 Thus saith HaShem, who maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000010-QINU`"'17 Who bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power--they lie down together, they shall not rise, they are extinct, they are quenched as a wick:

'"`UNIQ--named-00000011-QINU`"'18 Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000012-QINU`"'19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now shall it spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000013-QINU`"'20 The beasts of the field shall honour Me, the jackals and the ostriches; because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to My people, Mine elect;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000014-QINU`"'21 The people which I formed for Myself, that they might tell of My praise.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000015-QINU`"'22 Yet thou hast not called upon Me, O Jacob, neither hast thou wearied thyself about Me, O Israel.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000016-QINU`"'23 Thou hast not brought Me the small cattle of thy burnt-offerings; neither hast thou honoured Me with thy sacrifices. I have not burdened thee with a meal-offering, nor wearied thee with frankincense.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000017-QINU`"'24 Thou hast bought Me no sweet cane with money, neither hast thou satisfied Me with the fat of thy sacrifices; but thou hast burdened Me with thy sins, thou hast wearied Me with thine iniquities.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000018-QINU`"'25 I, even I, am He that blotteth out thy transgressions for Mine own sake; and thy sins I will not remember.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000019-QINU`"'26 Put Me in remembrance, let us plead together; declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001A-QINU`"'27 Thy first father sinned, and thine intercessors have transgressed against Me.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001B-QINU`"'28 Therefore I have profaned the princes of the sanctuary, and I have given Jacob to condemnation, and Israel to reviling.
