Isaiah 42:13–25

13  The Lord shall go forth fas a mighty man,

He shall stir up jealousy like ga man of war:

He shall cry, yea, hroar;

He shall ||prevail against his enemies.

14  I have long time holden my peace;

I have been still, and irefrained myself:

Now will I cry klike a travailing woman;

I will destroy and devour at once.

15  I will make waste mountains and hills,

And dry up all their herbs;

And I will make the rivers aislands,

And I will dry up the pools.

16  And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not;

I will lead them in paths that they have not known:

I will make darkness light before them,

And crooked things straight.

These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.

17  They shall be lturned back, mthey shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images,

That say to the molten images, Ye are our gods.

18  nHear, ye deaf;

And olook, ye blind, that ye may see.

19  pWho is blind, but qmy servant?

Or deaf, as my messenger that I sent?

Who is blind as he that is perfect,

And blind as qthe Lord’s servant?

20  rSeeing many things, sbut thou observest not;

tOpening the ears, but he heareth not.

21  The Lord is well pleased for his righteousness’ sake;

He uwill magnify the law, and make ||it honourable.

22  But this is a people robbed and spoiled;

||They are all of them snared in holes,

And they are hid in prison houses:

They are vfor a prey, and none delivereth;

vFor wa spoil, and none saith, Restore.

23  Who among you will give ear to this?

Who will hearken and hear for the time to come?

24  Who gave Jacob for wa spoil, and Israel to the robbers?

Did not the Lord, he against whom we have sinned?

For they would not walk in his ways,

Neither were they obedient unto his law.

25  xTherefore he hath poured upon him the fury of his anger, and the strength of battle:

And yit hath set him on fire round about, zyet he knew not;

And it burned him, yet he alaid it not to heart.
