The LORD Promises Deliverance and Justice
Hearken to me! O ones pursuing the just thing
, and seeking the LORD
. Look unto the solid rock! which you quarried, and into the pit of the well which you dug.
Look unto Abraham your father! and unto Sarah the one travailing you. For he was one person
, and I called him, and blessed him, and loved him, and multiplied him.
I will comfort], O Zion. And I comforted all her desolate places
; and I will make her desolate places
as a park; and her western places
as a park of the LORD
a leap for joy 1
They shall find] in her -- acknowledgment and a voice of praise.
Hear me! Hear me O my people! and O kings [2
give ear]! For a law [2
shall go forth], and my judgment for a light of nations.
My righteousness], and [2
shall go forth 3
my deliverance], and on my arm they shall hope. [3
for me 1
shall wait], and on my arm they shall hope.
Lift up [2
your eyes], and look unto the earth below! For the heaven is
as smoke having been solidified. And the earth as a cloak shall be old, and the ones inhabiting [2
shall die]. But the deliverance of mine [2
shall be], and the righteousness of mine in no way shall fail.
Hear me, O ones knowing equity! a people of whom my law is in their heart. Do not fear the
scorning of men, and [2
their disparagement 3
let] vanquish you
For as a garment will be eaten upon time, and as wool shall be eaten by a moth; but the righteousness of mine [2
will be]; and the deliverance of mine for generations of generations.
Awaken! Awaken! O Jerusalem, and put on the strength of your arm! Awaken as in the
beginning of days, as a generation of an eon! [2
Are] her being quarried in width, being torn up by the
Are] her making desolate the
abundance], the one putting the depths of the sea for a way of a ford to the
ones being rescued,
ones being ransomed? For by the LORD
they shall be returned, and shall come unto Zion with gladness, and [2
leap for joy 1
an everlasting]. [2
their] praise and gladness shall overtake them. [6

The LORD Promises Comfort
I am, I am he, the one comforting you. Know who is being! that you should be fearful from [2
mortal], and from a son of man -- the ones who as grass were dried up.
And you forgot God, the one making you, the one making the heaven, and laying the foundation for the earth. And fear continually all the days in front of the rage of the one afflicting you! in which manner he planned to carry you away. And now where is
the rage of the one afflicting you?
For in your being delivered, he shall not stop nor pass time. And he shall not kill for hurt, and in no way shall he lack his bread.
For I am
your God, the one disturbing the sea, and resounding its waves. The LORD
of Hosts is
I will put my words into your mouth. And under the shadow of my hand I will shelter you, in which I established the heaven, and founded the earth. And he shall say to Zion, [2
my people 1
Awaken! Awaken! Rise up, O Jerusalem! the one drinking from the
hand of the LORD
the cup of his rage. [2
For] of the blow, the drinking cup of rage you drank and emptied out.
And there was no one
comforting you from all your children whom you gave birth. And there was none taking hold of your hand, nor of all your sons whom you raised.
Therefore these things
are adverse to you. Who will grieve with you? A calamitous downfall, and defeat, hunger, and sword; who will comfort you?
Your sons, the ones being perplexed, the ones sleeping upon the
top of all the
streets, as [2
a half-boiled]; the ones full of the
rage of the LORD
, fainting from the LORD
On account of this, hear! O one being humbled, and O one being intoxicated not from wine.
Thus says the LORD
God, the one judging his people, Behold, I took from out of your hand the cup of the blow, the drinking cup of my rage; and you shall not proceed to drink it any longer.
And I give it into the hand of the ones wronging you, and of the ones humbling you; the
ones who said to
your soul, Bow! that we should go by. And you put [3
to the 5
the things 2
in your midst] outside to the ones coming near.
