65 aI am sought of them that asked not for me;
I am found of them that sought me not:
I said, Behold me, behold me,
Unto a nation that bwas not called by my name.
4 lWhich remain among the graves,
And lodge in the monuments,
mWhich eat swine’s flesh,
5 pWhich say, Stand by thyself,
Come not near to me; for I am holier than thou.
These are a smoke in my ||nose,
qA fire that burneth all the day.
6 Behold, rit is written before me:
Even recompense uinto their bosom,
yWhich have burned incense upon the mountains,
zAnd blasphemed me upon the hills:
And one saith, Destroy it not; for da blessing is in it:
bThat I may not destroy them all.
And my servants shall dwell there.
For my people that have sought me.
11 But ye are they that mforsake the Lord,
That forget nmy holy mountain,
12 Therefore rwill I number you to the sword,
And ye shall all bow down to the slaughter:
sBut did evil before mine eyes,
sAnd did choose that wherein I delighted not.
Behold, my servants shall drink, but ye shall be thirsty:
But ye shall cry for sorrow of heart,
For the Lord God shall slay thee,
Because ithe former troubles are forgotten,
And because they are hid from mine eyes.
And the former shall not be remembered, nor †come into mind.
18 But be ye glad and rejoice lfor ever in that which I create:
For, behold, mI create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy.
19 And nI will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people:
And othe voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.
Nor an old man that hath not filled his days:
For pthe child shall die an hundred years old;
But qthe sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed.
21 And rthey shall build houses, and inhabit them;
For tas the days of a tree are the days of my people,
23 vThey shall not labour in vain,
For ythey are the seed of the blessed of the Lord,
And their zoffspring with them.
24 And it shall come to pass, that abefore they call, I will answer;
And bwhile they are yet speaking, I will hear.
And ethe lion shall eat straw like the bullock:
And fdust shall be the serpent’s meat.
