Yeshayahu (Book of Isaiah), Chapter 45

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 Thus saith HaShem to His anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him, and to loose the loins of kings; to open the doors before him, and that the gates may not be shut:

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the doors of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I am HaShem, who call thee by thy name, even the G-d of Israel.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 For the sake of Jacob My servant, and Israel Mine elect, I have called thee by thy name, I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known Me.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 I am HaShem, and there is none else, beside Me there is no G-d; I have girded thee, though thou hast not known Me;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside Me; I am HaShem; and there is none else;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 I form the light, and create darkness; I make peace, and create evil; I am HaShem, that doeth all these things.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness; let the earth open, that they may bring forth salvation, and let her cause righteousness to spring up together; I HaShem have created it.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker, as a potsherd with the potsherds of the earth! Shall the clay say to him that fashioned it: 'What makest thou?' Or: 'Thy work, it hath no hands'?

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 Woe unto him that saith unto his father. 'Wherefore begettest thou?' Or to a woman: 'Wherefore travailest thou?'

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 Thus saith HaShem, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker: Ask Me of the things that are to come; concerning My sons, and concerning the work of My hands, command ye Me.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 I, even I, have made the earth, and created man upon it; I, even My hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 I have roused him up in victory, and I make level all his ways; he shall build My city, and he shall let Mine exiles go free, not for price nor reward, saith HaShem of hosts.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'14 Thus saith HaShem: the labour of Egypt, and the merchandise of Ethiopia, and of the Sabeans, men of stature, shall come over unto thee, and they shall be thine; they shall go after thee, in chains they shall come over; and they shall fall down unto thee, they shall make supplication unto thee: Surely G-d is in thee, and there is none else, there is no other G-d.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'15 Verily Thou art a G-d that hidest Thyself, O G-d of Israel, the Saviour.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000F-QINU`"'16 They shall be ashamed, yea, confounded, all of them; they shall go in confusion together that are makers of idols.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000010-QINU`"'17 O Israel, that art saved by HaShem with an everlasting salvation; ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000011-QINU`"'18 For thus saith HaShem that created the heavens, He is G-d; that formed the earth and made it, He established it, He created it not a waste, He formed it to be inhabited: I am HaShem, and there is none else.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000012-QINU`"'19 I have not spoken in secret, in a place of the land of darkness; I said not unto the seed of Jacob: 'Seek ye Me in vain'; I HaShem speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000013-QINU`"'20 Assemble yourselves and come, draw near together, ye that are escaped of the nations; they have no knowledge that carry the wood of their graven image, and pray unto a god that cannot save.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000014-QINU`"'21 Declare ye, and bring them near, yea, let them take counsel together: Who hath announced this from ancient time, and declared it of old? Have not I HaShem? And there is no G-d else beside Me, a just G-d and a Saviour; there is none beside Me.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000015-QINU`"'22 Look unto Me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am G-d, and there is none else.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000016-QINU`"'23 By Myself have I sworn, the word is gone forth from My mouth in righteousness, and shall not come back, that unto Me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000017-QINU`"'24 Only in HaShem, shall one say of Me, is victory and strength; even to Him shall men come in confusion, all they that were incensed against Him.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000018-QINU`"'25 In HaShem shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory.
