Isaiah 49


1  Listen,8085 O isles,339 unto413 me; and hearken,7181 ye people,3816 from far;4480 7350 The LORD3068 hath called7121 me from the womb;4480 990 from the bowels4480 4578 of my mother517 hath he made mention2142 of my name.8034

2  And he hath made7760 my mouth6310 like a sharp2299 sword;2719 in the shadow6738 of his hand3027 hath he hid2244 me, and made7760 me a polished1305 shaft;2671 in his quiver827 hath he hid5641 me;

3  And said559 unto me, Thou859 art my servant,5650 O Israel,3478 in whom834 I will be glorified.6286

4  Then I589 said,559 I have labored3021 in vain,7385 I have spent3615 my strength3581 for naught,8414 and in vain:1892 yet surely403 my judgment4941 is with854 the LORD,3068 and my work6468 with854 my God.430

5  And now,6258 saith559 the LORD3068 that formed3335 me from the womb4480 990 to be his servant,5650 to bring Jacob again7725 3290 to413 him, Though Israel3478 be not gathered,622 yet shall I be glorious3513 in the eyes5869 of the LORD,3068 and my God430 shall be1961 my strength.5797

6  And he said,559 It is a light thing7043 that thou shouldest be4480 1961 my servant5650 to raise up6965 853 the tribes7626 of Jacob,3290 and to restore7725 the preserved5341 of Israel:3478 I will also give5414 thee for a light216 to the Gentiles,1471 that thou mayest be1961 my salvation3444 unto5704 the end7097 of the earth.776

7  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 the Redeemer1350 of Israel,3478 and his Holy One,6918 to him whom man5315 despiseth,960 to him whom the nation1471 abhorreth,8581 to a servant5650 of rulers,4910 Kings4428 shall see7200 and arise,6965 princes8269 also shall worship,7812 because of4616 the LORD3068 that834 is faithful,539 and the Holy One6918 of Israel,3478 and he shall choose977 thee.

8  Thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 In an acceptable7522 time6256 have I heard6030 thee, and in a day3117 of salvation3444 have I helped5826 thee: and I will preserve5341 thee, and give5414 thee for a covenant1285 of the people,5971 to establish6965 the earth,776 to cause to inherit5157 the desolate8074 heritages;5159

9  That thou mayest say559 to the prisoners,631 Go forth;3318 to them that834 are in darkness,2822 Show yourselves.1540 They shall feed7462 in5921 the ways,1870 and their pastures4830 shall be in all3605 high places.8205

10  They shall not3808 hunger7456 nor3808 thirst;6770 neither3808 shall the heat8273 nor sun8121 smite5221 them: for3588 he that hath mercy7355 on them shall lead5090 them, even by5921 the springs4002 of water4325 shall he guide5095 them.

11  And I will make7760 all3605 my mountains2022 a way,1870 and my highways4546 shall be exalted.7311

12  Behold,2009 these428 shall come935 from far:4480 7350 and, lo,2009 these428 from the north4480 6828 and from the west;4480 3220 and these428 from the land4480 776 of Sinim.5515

13  Sing,7442 O heavens;8064 and be joyful,1523 O earth;776 and break forth6476 into singing,7440 O mountains:2022 for3588 the LORD3068 hath comforted5162 his people,5971 and will have mercy7355 upon his afflicted.6041

14  But Zion6726 said,559 The LORD3068 hath forsaken5800 me, and my Lord136 hath forgotten7911 me.

15  Can a woman802 forget7911 her sucking child,5764 that she should not have compassion4480 7355 on the son1121 of her womb?990 yea,1571 they428 may forget,7911 yet will I595 not3808 forget7911 thee.

16  Behold,2005 I have graven2710 thee upon5921 the palms of my hands;3709 thy walls2346 are continually8548 before5048 me.

17  Thy children1121 shall make haste;4116 thy destroyers2040 and they that made thee waste2717 shall go forth3318 of4480 thee.

18  Lift up5375 thine eyes5869 round about,5439 and behold:7200 all3605 these gather themselves together,6908 and come935 to thee. As I589 live,2416 saith5002 the LORD,3068 thou shalt surely3588 clothe3847 thee with them all,3605 as with an ornament,5716 and bind7194 them on thee, as a bride3618 doeth.

19  For3588 thy waste2723 and thy desolate places,8074 and the land776 of thy destruction,2035 shall even3588 now6258 be too narrow3334 by reason of the inhabitants,4480 3427 and they that swallowed thee up1104 shall be far away.7368

20  The children1121 which thou shalt have, after thou hast lost the other,7923 shall say559 again5750 in thine ears,241 The place4725 is too strait6862 for me: give place5066 to me that I may dwell.3427

21  Then shalt thou say559 in thine heart,3824 Who4310 hath begotten3205 me 853 these,428 seeing I589 have lost my children,7909 and am desolate,1565 a captive,1540 and removing to and fro?5493 and who4310 hath brought up1431 these?428 Behold,2005 I589 was left7604 alone;905 these,428 where375 had they1992 been?

22  Thus3541 saith559 the Lord136 GOD,3069 Behold,2009 I will lift up5375 mine hand3027 to413 the Gentiles,1471 and set up7311 my standard5251 to413 the people:5971 and they shall bring935 thy sons1121 in their arms,2684 and thy daughters1323 shall be carried5375 upon5921 their shoulders.3802

23  And kings4428 shall be1961 thy nursing fathers,539 and their queens8282 thy nursing mothers:3243 they shall bow down7812 to thee with their face639 toward the earth,776 and lick up3897 the dust6083 of thy feet;7272 and thou shalt know3045 that3588 I589 am the LORD:3068 for they834 shall not3808 be ashamed954 that wait6960 for me.

24  Shall the prey4455 be taken3947 from the mighty,4480 1368 or518 the lawful6662 captive7628 delivered?4422

25  But3588 thus3541 saith559 the LORD,3068 Even1571 the captives7628 of the mighty1368 shall be taken away,3947 and the prey4455 of the terrible6184 shall be delivered:4422 for I595 will contend with7378 him that contendeth with3401 thee, and I595 will save3467 thy children.1121

26  And I will feed398 853 them that oppress3238 thee with 853 their own flesh;1320 and they shall be drunken7937 with their own blood,1818 as with sweet wine:6071 and all3605 flesh1320 shall know3045 that3588 I589 the LORD3068 am thy Savior3467 and thy Redeemer,1350 the mighty One46 of Jacob.3290


1 ἀκούσατέ μου νῆσοι καὶ προσέχετε ἔθνη διὰ χρόνου πολλοῦ στήσεται λέγει κύριος ἐκ κοιλίας μητρός μου ἐκάλεσεν τὸ ὄνομά μου

2 καὶ ἔθηκεν τὸ στόμα μου ὡσεὶ μάχαιραν ὀξεῖαν καὶ ὑπὸ τὴν σκέπην τῆς χειρὸς αὐτοῦ ἔκρυψέν με ἔθηκέν με ὡς βέλος ἐκλεκτὸν καὶ ἐν τῇ φαρέτρᾳ αὐτοῦ ἐσκέπασέν με

3 καὶ εἶπέν μοι δοῦλός μου εἶ σύ Ισραηλ καὶ ἐν σοὶ δοξασθήσομαι

4 καὶ ἐγὼ εἶπα κενῶς ἐκοπίασα καὶ εἰς μάταιον καὶ εἰς οὐδὲν ἔδωκα τὴν ἰσχύν μου διὰ τοῦτο ἡ κρίσις μου παρὰ κυρίῳ καὶ ὁ πόνος μου ἐναντίον τοῦ θεοῦ μου

5 καὶ νῦν οὕτως λέγει κύριος ὁ πλάσας με ἐκ κοιλίας δοῦλον ἑαυτῷ τοῦ συναγαγεῖν τὸν Ιακωβ καὶ Ισραηλ πρὸς αὐτόν συναχθήσομαι καὶ δοξασθήσομαι ἐναντίον κυρίου καὶ ὁ θεός μου ἔσται μου ἰσχύς

6 καὶ εἶπέν μοι μέγα σοί ἐστιν τοῦ κληθῆναί σε παῖδά μου τοῦ στῆσαι τὰς φυλὰς Ιακωβ καὶ τὴν διασπορὰν τοῦ Ισραηλ ἐπιστρέψαι ἰδοὺ τέθεικά σε εἰς διαθήκην γένους εἰς φῶς ἐθνῶν τοῦ εἶναί σε εἰς σωτηρίαν ἕως ἐσχάτου τῆς γῆς

7 οὕτως λέγει κύριος ὁ ῥυσάμενός σε ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ ἁγιάσατε τὸν φαυλίζοντα τὴν ψυχὴν αὐτοῦ τὸν βδελυσσόμενον ὑπὸ τῶν ἐθνῶν τῶν δούλων τῶν ἀρχόντων βασιλεῖς ὄψονται αὐτὸν καὶ ἀναστήσονται ἄρχοντες καὶ προσκυνήσουσιν αὐτῷ ἕνεκεν κυρίου ὅτι πιστός ἐστιν ὁ ἅγιος Ισραηλ καὶ ἐξελεξάμην σε

8 οὕτως λέγει κύριος καιρῷ δεκτῷ ἐπήκουσά σου καὶ ἐν ἡμέρᾳ σωτηρίας ἐβοήθησά σοι καὶ ἔδωκά σε εἰς διαθήκην ἐθνῶν τοῦ καταστῆσαι τὴν γῆν καὶ κληρονομῆσαι κληρονομίαν ἐρήμου

9 λέγοντα τοῖς ἐν δεσμοῖς ἐξέλθατε καὶ τοῖς ἐν τῷ σκότει ἀνακαλυφθῆναι καὶ ἐν πάσαις ταῖς ὁδοῖς αὐτῶν βοσκηθήσονται καὶ ἐν πάσαις ταῖς τρίβοις ἡ νομὴ αὐτῶν

10 οὐ πεινάσουσιν οὐδὲ διψήσουσιν οὐδὲ πατάξει αὐτοὺς καύσων οὐδὲ ὁ ἥλιος ἀλλὰ ὁ ἐλεῶν αὐτοὺς παρακαλέσει καὶ διὰ πηγῶν ὑδάτων ἄξει αὐτούς

11 καὶ θήσω πᾶν ὄρος εἰς ὁδὸν καὶ πᾶσαν τρίβον εἰς βόσκημα αὐτοῖς

12 ἰδοὺ οὗτοι πόρρωθεν ἔρχονται οὗτοι ἀπὸ βορρᾶ καὶ οὗτοι ἀπὸ θαλάσσης ἄλλοι δὲ ἐκ γῆς Περσῶν

13 εὐφραίνεσθε οὐρανοί καὶ ἀγαλλιάσθω ἡ γῆ ῥηξάτωσαν τὰ ὄρη εὐφροσύνην καὶ οἱ βουνοὶ δικαιοσύνην ὅτι ἠλέησεν ὁ θεὸς τὸν λαὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ τοὺς ταπεινοὺς τοῦ λαοῦ αὐτοῦ παρεκάλεσεν

14 εἶπεν δὲ Σιων ἐγκατέλιπέν με κύριος καὶ ὁ κύριος ἐπελάθετό μου

15 μὴ ἐπιλήσεται γυνὴ τοῦ παιδίου αὐτῆς τοῦ μὴ ἐλεῆσαι τὰ ἔκγονα τῆς κοιλίας αὐτῆς εἰ δὲ καὶ ἐπιλάθοιτο ταῦτα γυνή ἀλλ᾽ ἐγὼ οὐκ ἐπιλήσομαί σου εἶπεν κύριος

16 ἰδοὺ ἐπὶ τῶν χειρῶν μου ἐζωγράφησά σου τὰ τείχη καὶ ἐνώπιόν μου εἶ διὰ παντός

17 καὶ ταχὺ οἰκοδομηθήσῃ ὑφ᾽ ὧν καθῃρέθης καὶ οἱ ἐρημώσαντές σε ἐκ σοῦ ἐξελεύσονται

18 ἆρον κύκλῳ τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς σου καὶ ἰδὲ πάντας ἰδοὺ συνήχθησαν καὶ ἤλθοσαν πρὸς σέ ζῶ ἐγώ λέγει κύριος ὅτι πάντας αὐτοὺς ἐνδύσῃ καὶ περιθήσῃ αὐτοὺς ὡς κόσμον νύμφης

19 ὅτι τὰ ἔρημά σου καὶ τὰ διεφθαρμένα καὶ τὰ πεπτωκότα νῦν στενοχωρήσει ἀπὸ τῶν κατοικούντων καὶ μακρυνθήσονται ἀπὸ σοῦ οἱ καταπίνοντές σε

20 ἐροῦσιν γὰρ εἰς τὰ ὦτά σου οἱ υἱοί σου οὓς ἀπολώλεκας στενός μοι ὁ τόπος ποίησόν μοι τόπον ἵνα κατοικήσω

21 καὶ ἐρεῖς ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ σου τίς ἐγέννησέν μοι τούτους ἐγὼ δὲ ἄτεκνος καὶ χήρα τούτους δὲ τίς ἐξέθρεψέν μοι ἐγὼ δὲ κατελείφθην μόνη οὗτοι δέ μοι ποῦ ἦσαν

22 οὕτως λέγει κύριος ἰδοὺ αἴρω εἰς τὰ ἔθνη τὴν χεῖρά μου καὶ εἰς τὰς νήσους ἀρῶ σύσσημόν μου καὶ ἄξουσιν τοὺς υἱούς σου ἐν κόλπῳ τὰς δὲ θυγατέρας σου ἐπ᾽ ὤμων ἀροῦσιν

23 καὶ ἔσονται βασιλεῖς τιθηνοί σου αἱ δὲ ἄρχουσαι τροφοί σου ἐπὶ πρόσωπον τῆς γῆς προσκυνήσουσίν σοι καὶ τὸν χοῦν τῶν ποδῶν σου λείξουσιν καὶ γνώσῃ ὅτι ἐγὼ κύριος καὶ οὐκ αἰσχυνθήσῃ

24 μὴ λήμψεταί τις παρὰ γίγαντος σκῦλα καὶ ἐὰν αἰχμαλωτεύσῃ τις ἀδίκως σωθήσεται

25 οὕτως λέγει κύριος ἐάν τις αἰχμαλωτεύσῃ γίγαντα λήμψεται σκῦλα λαμβάνων δὲ παρὰ ἰσχύοντος σωθήσεται ἐγὼ δὲ τὴν κρίσιν σου κρινῶ καὶ ἐγὼ τοὺς υἱούς σου ῥύσομαι

26 καὶ φάγονται οἱ θλίψαντές σε τὰς σάρκας αὐτῶν καὶ πίονται ὡς οἶνον νέον τὸ αἷμα αὐτῶν καὶ μεθυσθήσονται καὶ αἰσθανθήσεται πᾶσα σὰρξ ὅτι ἐγὼ κύριος ὁ ῥυσάμενός σε καὶ ἀντιλαμβανόμενος ἰσχύος Ιακωβ

1 [Audite, insulæ,
et attendite, populi de longe:
Dominus ab utero vocavit me;
de ventre matris meæ recordatus est nominis mei.

2 Et posuit os meum quasi gladium acutum,
in umbra manus suæ protexit me,
et posuit me sicut sagittam electam:
in pharetra sua abscondit me.

3 Et dixit mihi: Servus meus es tu Israël,
quia in te gloriabor.

4 Et ego dixi: In vacuum laboravi;
sine causa et vane fortitudinem meam consumpsi:
ergo judicium meum cum Domino,
et opus meum cum Deo meo.

5 Et nunc dicit Dominus,
formans me ex utero servum sibi,
ut reducam Jacob ad eum,
et Israël non congregabitur;
et glorificatus sum in oculis Domini,
et Deus meus factus est fortitudo mea.

6 Et dixit: Parum est ut sis mihi servus
ad suscitandas tribus Jacob,
et fæces Israël convertendas:
ecce dedi te in lucem gentium,
ut sis salus mea
usque ad extremum terræ.

7 Hæc dicit Dominus,
redemptor Israël, Sanctus ejus,
ad contemptibilem animam, ad abominatam gentem,
ad servum dominorum:
Reges videbunt,
et consurgent principes, et adorabunt
propter Dominum, quia fidelis est,
et Sanctum Israël qui elegit te.]

8 [Hæc dicit Dominus:
In tempore placito exaudivi te,
et in die salutis auxiliatus sum tui:
et servavi te, et dedi te in fœdus populi,
ut suscitares terram,
et possideres hæreditates dissipatas;

9 ut diceres his qui vincti sunt: Exite,
et his qui in tenebris: Revelamini.
Super vias pascentur,
et in omnibus planis pascua eorum.

10 Non esurient neque sitient,
et non percutiet eos æstus et sol,
quia miserator eorum reget eos,
et ad fontes aquarum potabit eos.

11 Et ponam omnes montes meos in viam,
et semitæ meæ exaltabuntur.

12 Ecce isti de longe venient,
et ecce illi ab aquilone et mari,
et isti de terra australi.

13 Laudate, cæli, et exsulta, terra;
jubilate, montes, laudem,
quia consolatus est Dominus populum suum,
et pauperum suorum miserebitur.]

14 [Et dixit Sion: Dereliquit me Dominus,
et Dominus oblitus est mei.

15 Numquid oblivisci potest mulier infantem suum,
ut non misereatur filio uteri sui?
Etsi illa oblita fuerit,
ego tamen non obliviscar tui.

16 Ecce in manibus meis descripsi te;
muri tui coram oculis meis semper.

17 Venerunt structores tui;
destruentes te et dissipantes a te exibunt.

18 Leva in circuitu oculos tuos, et vide:
omnes isti congregati sunt, venerunt tibi.
Vivo ego, dicit Dominus,
quia omnibus his velut ornamento vestieris,
et circumdabis tibi eos quasi sponsa;

19 quia deserta tua, et solitudines tuæ,
et terra ruinæ tuæ,
nunc angusta erunt præ habitatoribus;
et longe fugabuntur qui absorbebant te.

20 Adhuc dicent in auribus tuis
filii sterilitatis tuæ:
Angustus est mihi locus;
fac spatium mihi ut habitem.

21 Et dices in corde tuo:
Quis genuit mihi istos?
ego sterilis et non pariens,
transmigrata, et captiva;
et istos quis enutrivit?
ego destituta et sola;
et isti ubi erant?

22 Hæc dicit Dominus Deus:
Ecce levabo ad gentes manum meam,
et ad populos exaltabo signum meum:
et afferent filios tuos in ulnis,
et filias tuas super humeros portabunt.

23 Et erunt reges nutritii tui,
et reginæ nutrices tuæ;
vultu in terram demisso adorabunt te,
et pulverem pedum tuorum lingent.
Et scies quia ego Dominus,
super quo non confundentur qui exspectant eum.

24 Numquid tolletur a forti præda?
aut quod captum fuerit a robusto, salvum esse poterit?

25 Quia hæc dicit Dominus:
Equidem, et captivitas a forti tolletur,
et quod ablatum fuerit a robusto, salvabitur.
Eos vero qui judicaverunt te, ego judicabo,
et filios tuos ego salvabo.

26 Et cibabo hostes tuos carnibus suis,
et quasi musto, sanguine suo inebriabuntur,
et sciet omnis caro
quia ego Dominus salvans te,
et redemptor tuus fortis Jacob.]
