Isaiah 41


1  Keep silence2790 before413 me, O islands;339 and let the people3816 renew2498 their strength:3581 let them come near;5066 then227 let them speak:1696 let us come near7126 together3162 to judgment.4941

2  Who4310 raised up5782 the righteous6664 man from the east,4480 4217 called7121 him to his foot,7272 gave5414 the nations1471 before6440 him, and made him rule7287 over kings?4428 he gave5414 them as the dust6083 to his sword,2719 and as driven5086 stubble7179 to his bow.7198

3  He pursued7291 them, and passed5674 safely;7965 even by the way734 that he had not3808 gone935 with his feet.7272

4  Who4310 hath wrought6466 and done6213 it, calling7121 the generations1755 from the beginning?4480 7218 I589 the LORD,3068 the first,7223 and with854 the last;314 I589 am he.1931

5  The isles339 saw7200 it, and feared;3372 the ends7098 of the earth776 were afraid,2729 drew near,7126 and came.857

6  They helped5826 every one376 853 his neighbor;7453 and every one said559 to his brother,251 Be of good courage.2388

7  So the carpenter2796 encouraged2388 853 the goldsmith,6884 and he that smootheth2505 with the hammer6360 853 him that smote1986 the anvil,6471 saying,559 It1931 is ready2896 for the soldering:1694 and he fastened2388 it with nails,4548 that it should not3808 be moved.4131

8  But thou,859 Israel,3478 art my servant,5650 Jacob3290 whom834 I have chosen,977 the seed2233 of Abraham85 my friend.157

9  Thou whom834 I have taken2388 from the ends4480 7098 of the earth,776 and called7121 thee from the chief men4480 678 thereof, and said559 unto thee, Thou859 art my servant;5650 I have chosen977 thee, and not3808 cast thee away.3988

10  Fear3372 thou not;408 for3588 I589 am with5973 thee: be not408 dismayed;8159 for3588 I589 am thy God:430 I will strengthen553 thee; yea,637 I will help5826 thee; yea,637 I will uphold8551 thee with the right hand3225 of my righteousness.6664

11  Behold,2005 all3605 they that were incensed2734 against thee shall be ashamed954 and confounded:3637 they shall be1961 as nothing;369 and they376 that strive7379 with thee shall perish.6

12  Thou shalt seek1245 them, and shalt not3808 find4672 them,376 even them that contended4695 with thee: they376 that war4421 against thee shall be1961 as nothing,369 and as a thing of naught.657

13  For3588 I589 the LORD3068 thy God430 will hold2388 thy right hand,3225 saying559 unto thee, Fear3372 not;408 I589 will help5826 thee.

14  Fear3372 not,408 thou worm8438 Jacob,3290 and ye men4962 of Israel;3478 I589 will help5826 thee, saith5002 the LORD,3068 and thy redeemer,1350 the Holy One6918 of Israel.3478

15  Behold,2009 I will make7760 thee a new2319 sharp2742 threshing instrument4173 having1167 teeth:6374 thou shalt thresh1758 the mountains,2022 and beat them small,1854 and shalt make7760 the hills1389 as chaff.4671

16  Thou shalt fan2219 them, and the wind7307 shall carry them away,5375 and the whirlwind5591 shall scatter6327 them: and thou859 shalt rejoice1523 in the LORD,3068 and shalt glory1984 in the Holy One6918 of Israel.3478

17  When the poor6041 and needy34 seek1245 water,4325 and there is none,369 and their tongue3956 faileth5405 for thirst,6772 I589 the LORD3068 will hear6030 them, I the God430 of Israel3478 will not3808 forsake5800 them.

18  I will open6605 rivers5104 in5921 high places,8205 and fountains4599 in the midst8432 of the valleys:1237 I will make7760 the wilderness4057 a pool98 of water,4325 and the dry6723 land776 springs4161 of water.4325

19  I will plant5414 in the wilderness4057 the cedar,730 the shittah tree,7848 and the myrtle,1918 and the oil8081 tree;6086 I will set7760 in the desert6160 the fir tree,1265 and the pine,8410 and the box tree8391 together:3162

20  That4616 they may see,7200 and know,3045 and consider,7760 and understand7919 together,3162 that3588 the hand3027 of the LORD3068 hath done6213 this,2063 and the Holy One6918 of Israel3478 hath created1254 it.

21  Produce7126 your cause,7379 saith559 the LORD;3068 bring forth5066 your strong6110 reasons, saith559 the King4428 of Jacob.3290

22  Let them bring them forth,5066 and show5046 us 853 what834 shall happen:7136 let them show5046 the former things,7223 what4100 they2007 be, that we may consider7760 3820 them, and know3045 the latter end319 of them; or176 declare8085 us things for to come.935

23  Show5046 the things that are to come857 hereafter,268 that we may know3045 that3588 ye859 are gods:430 yea,637 do good,3190 or do evil,7489 that we may be dismayed,8159 and behold7200 it together.3162

24  Behold,2005 ye859 are of nothing,4480 369 and your work6467 of naught:4480 659 an abomination8441 is he that chooseth977 you.

25  I have raised up5782 one from the north,4480 6828 and he shall come:857 from the rising4480 4217 of the sun8121 shall he call7121 upon my name:8034 and he shall come935 upon princes5461 as3644 upon mortar,2563 and as3644 the potter3335 treadeth7429 clay.2916

26  Who4310 hath declared5046 from the beginning,4480 7218 that we may know?3045 and formerly,4480 6440 that we may say,559 He is righteous?6662 yea,637 there is none369 that showeth,5046 yea,637 there is none369 that declareth,8085 yea,637 there is none369 that heareth8085 your words.561

27  The first7223 shall say to Zion,6726 Behold,2009 behold2009 them: and I will give5414 to Jerusalem3389 one that bringeth good tidings.1319

28  For I beheld,7200 and there was no369 man;376 even among them,4480 428 and there was no369 counselor,3289 that, when I asked7592 of them, could answer7725 a word.1697

29  Behold,2005 they are all3605 vanity;205 their works4639 are nothing:657 their molten images5262 are wind7307 and confusion.8414


1 ἐγκαινίζεσθε πρός με νῆσοι οἱ γὰρ ἄρχοντες ἀλλάξουσιν ἰσχύν ἐγγισάτωσαν καὶ λαλησάτωσαν ἅμα τότε κρίσιν ἀναγγειλάτωσαν

2 τίς ἐξήγειρεν ἀπὸ ἀνατολῶν δικαιοσύνην ἐκάλεσεν αὐτὴν κατὰ πόδας αὐτοῦ καὶ πορεύσεται δώσει ἐναντίον ἐθνῶν καὶ βασιλεῖς ἐκστήσει καὶ δώσει εἰς γῆν τὰς μαχαίρας αὐτῶν καὶ ὡς φρύγανα ἐξωσμένα τὰ τόξα αὐτῶν

3 καὶ διώξεται αὐτοὺς καὶ διελεύσεται ἐν εἰρήνῃ ἡ ὁδὸς τῶν ποδῶν αὐτοῦ

4 τίς ἐνήργησεν καὶ ἐποίησεν ταῦτα ἐκάλεσεν αὐτὴν ὁ καλῶν αὐτὴν ἀπὸ γενεῶν ἀρχῆς ἐγὼ θεὸς πρῶτος καὶ εἰς τὰ ἐπερχόμενα ἐγώ εἰμι

5 εἴδοσαν ἔθνη καὶ ἐφοβήθησαν τὰ ἄκρα τῆς γῆς ἤγγισαν καὶ ἤλθοσαν ἅμα

6 κρίνων ἕκαστος τῷ πλησίον καὶ τῷ ἀδελφῷ βοηθῆσαι καὶ ἐρεῖ

7 ἴσχυσεν ἀνὴρ τέκτων καὶ χαλκεὺς τύπτων σφύρῃ ἅμα ἐλαύνων ποτὲ μὲν ἐρεῖ σύμβλημα καλόν ἐστιν ἰσχύρωσαν αὐτὰ ἐν ἥλοις θήσουσιν αὐτὰ καὶ οὐ κινηθήσονται

8 σὺ δέ Ισραηλ παῖς μου Ιακωβ ὃν ἐξελεξάμην σπέρμα Αβρααμ ὃν ἠγάπησα

9 οὗ ἀντελαβόμην ἀπ᾽ ἄκρων τῆς γῆς καὶ ἐκ τῶν σκοπιῶν αὐτῆς ἐκάλεσά σε καὶ εἶπά σοι παῖς μου εἶ ἐξελεξάμην σε καὶ οὐκ ἐγκατέλιπόν σε

10 μὴ φοβοῦ μετὰ σοῦ γάρ εἰμι μὴ πλανῶ ἐγὼ γάρ εἰμι ὁ θεός σου ὁ ἐνισχύσας σε καὶ ἐβοήθησά σοι καὶ ἠσφαλισάμην σε τῇ δεξιᾷ τῇ δικαίᾳ μου

11 ἰδοὺ αἰσχυνθήσονται καὶ ἐντραπήσονται πάντες οἱ ἀντικείμενοί σοι ἔσονται γὰρ ὡς οὐκ ὄντες καὶ ἀπολοῦνται πάντες οἱ ἀντίδικοί σου

12 ζητήσεις αὐτοὺς καὶ οὐ μὴ εὕρῃς τοὺς ἀνθρώπους οἳ παροινήσουσιν εἰς σέ ἔσονται γὰρ ὡς οὐκ ὄντες καὶ οὐκ ἔσονται οἱ ἀντιπολεμοῦντές σε

13 ὅτι ἐγὼ ὁ θεός σου ὁ κρατῶν τῆς δεξιᾶς σου ὁ λέγων σοι μὴ φοβοῦ

14 Ιακωβ ὀλιγοστὸς Ισραηλ ἐγὼ ἐβοήθησά σοι λέγει ὁ θεὸς ὁ λυτρούμενός σε Ισραηλ

15 ἰδοὺ ἐποίησά σε ὡς τροχοὺς ἁμάξης ἀλοῶντας καινοὺς πριστηροειδεῖς καὶ ἀλοήσεις ὄρη καὶ λεπτυνεῖς βουνοὺς καὶ ὡς χνοῦν θήσεις

16 καὶ λικμήσεις καὶ ἄνεμος λήμψεται αὐτούς καὶ καταιγὶς διασπερεῖ αὐτούς σὺ δὲ εὐφρανθήσῃ ἐν τοῖς ἁγίοις Ισραηλ καὶ ἀγαλλιάσονται

17 οἱ πτωχοὶ καὶ οἱ ἐνδεεῖς ζητήσουσιν γὰρ ὕδωρ καὶ οὐκ ἔσται ἡ γλῶσσα αὐτῶν ἀπὸ τῆς δίψης ἐξηράνθη ἐγὼ κύριος ὁ θεός ἐγὼ ἐπακούσομαι ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ καὶ οὐκ ἐγκαταλείψω αὐτούς

18 ἀλλὰ ἀνοίξω ἐπὶ τῶν ὀρέων ποταμοὺς καὶ ἐν μέσῳ πεδίων πηγάς ποιήσω τὴν ἔρημον εἰς ἕλη καὶ τὴν διψῶσαν γῆν ἐν ὑδραγωγοῖς

19 θήσω εἰς τὴν ἄνυδρον γῆν κέδρον καὶ πύξον καὶ μυρσίνην καὶ κυπάρισσον καὶ λεύκην

20 ἵνα ἴδωσιν καὶ γνῶσιν καὶ ἐννοηθῶσιν καὶ ἐπιστῶνται ἅμα ὅτι χεὶρ κυρίου ἐποίησεν ταῦτα πάντα καὶ ὁ ἅγιος τοῦ Ισραηλ κατέδειξεν

21 ἐγγίζει ἡ κρίσις ὑμῶν λέγει κύριος ὁ θεός ἤγγισαν αἱ βουλαὶ ὑμῶν λέγει ὁ βασιλεὺς Ιακωβ

22 ἐγγισάτωσαν καὶ ἀναγγειλάτωσαν ὑμῖν ἃ συμβήσεται ἢ τὰ πρότερα τίνα ἦν εἴπατε καὶ ἐπιστήσομεν τὸν νοῦν καὶ γνωσόμεθα τί τὰ ἔσχατα καὶ τὰ ἐπερχόμενα εἴπατε ἡμῖν

23 ἀναγγείλατε ἡμῖν τὰ ἐπερχόμενα ἐπ᾽ ἐσχάτου καὶ γνωσόμεθα ὅτι θεοί ἐστε εὖ ποιήσατε καὶ κακώσατε καὶ θαυμασόμεθα καὶ ὀψόμεθα ἅμα

24 ὅτι πόθεν ἐστὲ ὑμεῖς καὶ πόθεν ἡ ἐργασία ὑμῶν ἐκ γῆς βδέλυγμα ἐξελέξαντο ὑμᾶς

25 ἐγὼ δὲ ἤγειρα τὸν ἀπὸ βορρᾶ καὶ τὸν ἀφ᾽ ἡλίου ἀνατολῶν κληθήσονται τῷ ὀνόματί μου ἐρχέσθωσαν ἄρχοντες καὶ ὡς πηλὸς κεραμέως καὶ ὡς κεραμεὺς καταπατῶν τὸν πηλόν οὕτως καταπατηθήσεσθε

26 τίς γὰρ ἀναγγελεῖ τὰ ἐξ ἀρχῆς ἵνα γνῶμεν καὶ τὰ ἔμπροσθεν καὶ ἐροῦμεν ὅτι ἀληθῆ ἐστιν οὐκ ἔστιν ὁ προλέγων οὐδὲ ὁ ἀκούων ὑμῶν τοὺς λόγους

27 ἀρχὴν Σιων δώσω καὶ Ιερουσαλημ παρακαλέσω εἰς ὁδόν

28 ἀπὸ γὰρ τῶν ἐθνῶν ἰδοὺ οὐδείς καὶ ἀπὸ τῶν εἰδώλων αὐτῶν οὐκ ἦν ὁ ἀναγγέλλων καὶ ἐὰν ἐρωτήσω αὐτούς πόθεν ἐστέ οὐ μὴ ἀποκριθῶσίν μοι

29 εἰσὶν γὰρ οἱ ποιοῦντες ὑμᾶς καὶ μάτην οἱ πλανῶντες ὑμᾶς

1 [Taceant ad me insulæ,
et gentes mutent fortitudinem:
accedant, et tunc loquantur;
simul ad judicium propinquemus.

2 Quis suscitavit ab oriente Justum,
vocavit eum ut sequeretur se?
Dabit in conspectu ejus gentes,
et reges obtinebit:
dabit quasi pulverem gladio ejus,
sicut stipulam vento raptam arcui ejus.

3 Persequetur eos, transibit in pace:
semita in pedibus ejus non apparebit.

4 Quis hæc operatus est, et fecit,
vocans generationes ab exordio?
Ego Dominus:
primus et novissimus ego sum.

5 Viderunt insulæ, et timuerunt;
extrema terræ obstupuerunt:
appropinquaverunt, et accesserunt.

6 Unusquisque proximo suo auxiliabitur,
et fratri suo dicet: Confortare.

7 Confortavit faber ærarius
percutiens malleo
eum, qui cudebat tunc temporis,
dicens: Glutino bonum est;
et confortavit eum clavis, ut non moveretur.]

8 [Et tu, Israël, serve meus,
Jacob quem elegi,
semen Abraham amici mei:

9 in quo apprehendi te ab extremis terræ,
et a longinquis ejus vocavi te,
et dixi tibi: Servus meus es tu:
elegi te, et non abjeci te.

10 Ne timeas, quia ego tecum sum;
ne declines, quia ego Deus tuus:
confortavi te, et auxiliatus sum tibi,
et suscepit te dextera Justi mei.

11 Ecce confundentur et erubescent
omnes qui pugnant adversum te;
erunt quasi non sint, et peribunt
viri qui contradicunt tibi.

12 Quæres eos, et non invenies,
viros rebelles tuos;
erunt quasi non sint, et veluti consumptio
homines bellantes adversum te.

13 Quia ego Dominus Deus tuus,
apprehendens manum tuam,
dicensque tibi: Ne timeas:
ego adjuvi te.

14 Noli timere, vermis Jacob,
qui mortui estis ex Israël:
ego auxiliatus sum tibi, dicit Dominus,
et redemptor tuus Sanctus Israël.

15 Ego posui te quasi plaustrum triturans novum,
habens rostra serrantia;
triturabis montes, et comminues,
et colles quasi pulverem pones.

16 Ventilabis eos, et ventus tollet,
et turbo disperget eos;
et tu exsultabis in Domino,
in Sancto Israël lætaberis.

17 Egeni et pauperes
quærunt aquas, et non sunt;
lingua eorum siti aruit.
Ego Dominus exaudiam eos,
Deus Israël, non derelinquam eos.

18 Aperiam in supinis collibus flumina,
et in medio camporum fontes:
ponam desertum in stagna aquarum,
et terram inviam in rivos aquarum.

19 Dabo in solitudinem cedrum,
et spinam, et myrtum, et lignum olivæ;
ponam in deserto abietem,
ulmum, et buxum simul:

20 ut videant, et sciant,
et recogitent, et intelligant pariter,
quia manus Domini fecit hoc,
et Sanctus Israël creavit illud.

21 Prope facite judicium vestrum,
dicit Dominus;
Afferte, si quid forte habetis,
dicit rex Jacob.

22 Accedant, et nuntient nobis
quæcumque ventura sunt;
priora quæ fuerunt, nuntiate,
et ponemus cor nostrum,
et sciemus novissima eorum;
et quæ ventura sunt, indicate nobis.

23 Annuntiate quæ ventura sunt in futurum,
et sciemus quia dii estis vos;
bene quoque aut male, si potestis, facite,
et loquamur et videamus simul.

24 Ecce vos estis ex nihilo,
et opus vestrum ex eo quod non est:
abominatio est qui elegit vos.

25 Suscitavi ab aquilone, et veniet ab ortu solis:
vocabit nomen meum,
et adducet magistratus quasi lutum,
et velut plastes conculcans humum.

26 Quis annuntiavit ab exordio ut sciamus,
et a principio ut dicamus: Justus es?
Non est neque annuntians, neque prædicens,
neque audiens sermones vestros.

27 Primus ad Sion dicet: Ecce adsunt,
et Jerusalem evangelistam dabo.

28 Et vidi,
et non erat neque ex istis quisquam

et vana opera eorum;
ventus et inane simulacra eorum.]
