RSTNE 8th Edition Online – Isaiah-Yeshayahu


To Our Forefathers Yisrael

1 The vision of Yeshayahu the son of Amotz, which he saw concerning Yahudah and Yahrushalayim in the yamim of Uziyahu, Yotam, Achaz and Hizqiyahu, melechim of Yahudah.

2 Hear, O shamayim and listen, O earth: for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has spoken, I have nourished and brought up children and they have rebelled against Me.

3 The ox knows his owner and the donkey his master’s crib: but Yisrael does not know Me, My people have not understood Me.

4 Oy sinful nation, a people loaded with iniquity, a zera of evildoers, children that are corrupt: they have forsaken 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, they have provoked the Kadosh-One of Yisrael to anger and they have gone backwards.

5 Why should you be beaten anymore? Yet you will continue in apostasy: the whole head is sick and the whole lev is faint.

6 From the sole of the foot even to the head there is no soundness; but wounds and bruises and open sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither soothed with ointment.

7 Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, foreigners devour it in your presence and it is desolate, foreigners overthrow it.

8 And the daughter of Tzion is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a hut in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city.

9 Except 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot had left to us a very small remnant, we would have become just like Sedom and we would have been just like Amorah.

10 Hear The Word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, you rulers of Sedom; give ear to the Torah of our Ahlohim, you people of Amorah.

11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices to Me? Says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄: I AM full of the burnt offerings of rams and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the dahm of bulls, or of lambs, or of goats.

12 When you come to appear before Me, who has required this at your hand, to trample My courts?

13 Bring no more vain offerings; incense is an abomination to Me; the so called moons and The Shabbats, the calling of miqra kedoshim, I cannot put up with; it is iniquity, even the kadosh meetings.

14 Your new moons and your moadeem My being hates: they are a trouble to Me; I AM weary of bearing them.

15 And when you spread forth your hands, I will hide My eyes from you: even though you make many tefillot, I will not hear: your hands are full of dahm.

16 Wash yourself and make yourself clean; put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes; cease to do evil;

17 Learn to do tov; seek mishpat, relieve the oppressed, defend the fatherless and plead for the widow.

18 Come now and let us reason together, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄: though your sins are as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

19 If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the tov of the land:

20 But if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has spoken it.

21 How is it that the faithful city became a harlot! It was full of mishpat; tzedakah lodged in it; but now murderers.

22 Your silver has become dross, your wine mixed with mayim:

23 Your rulers are rebellious and are companions of thieves: everyone loves bribes and follows after rewards: they do not defend the fatherless, neither does the cause of the widow concern them.

24 Therefore says The Master,𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot, the Mighty One of Yisrael, Ah; I will be eased from My adversaries and avenged of My enemies:

25 And I will turn My hand against you and purge away the dross of your rebellious men and take away all your sin:

26 And I will restore your shophtim as at the first and your counselors as at the beginning: afterward you shall be called, The City of Tzedakah, the faithful city.

27 Tzion shall be redeemed with mishpat and her restored ones with tzedakah.

28 And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together and also they that forsake 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall be consumed.

29 For they shall be ashamed about the oak eytzim which they have desired, and you shall be embarrassed because of the gardens that you have chosen.

30 For you shall be as an oak whose leaf fades and as a garden that has no mayim.

31 And the strong shall be for cotton and his work as a spark and they shall both burn together and there shall be none to extinguish it.

2 The Word that Yeshayahu the son of Amotz saw concerning Yahudah and Yahrushalayim.

2 And it shall come to pass in the yamim acharonim, that the har of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 ‘s Bayit shall be established on the top of the mountains and shall be exalted above the hills; and all goyim shall flow to it .

3 And many goyim shall go and say, Come and let us make aliyah to the har of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, to the Bayit of the Ahlohim of Yaakov; and He will teach us His halachot and we will have our halacha in His paths: for out of Tzion shall go forth the Torah and The Word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 from Yahrushalayim.

4 And He shall be a shofet between the goyim, and shall rebuke many peoples: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.

5 O Beit Yaakov, come and let us have our halacha in The Ohr of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

6 Therefore You have forsaken Your people Beit Yaakov, because they are self-satisfied like the old yamim and practice magic like the Plishtim and they please themselves with the children of foreigners.

7 Their land also is full of silver and gold, neither is there any end of their treasures; their land is also full of horses, neither is there any end of their mirkavot:

8 Their land also is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made:

9 And the humble bows down and the great man humbles himself: You do not forgive them.

10 Enter into the rock and hide in the dust, for the fear of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and for the tifereth of His excellence.

11 The proud looks of man shall be humbled and the pride of men shall be brought down and 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 alone shall be exalted in that yom.

12 For Yom 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot shall be upon everyone that is proud and lofty and upon everyone that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low:

13 And upon all the cedars of Levanon, that are high and lifted up and upon all the oaks of Bashan,

14 And upon all the high mountains and upon all the hills that are lifted up,

15 And upon every high tower and upon every fortified wall,

16 And upon all the ships of Tarshish and upon all desirable sights.

17 And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down and the pride of men shall be brought low: and 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 alone shall be exalted in that yom.

18 And the idols He shall utterly abolish.

19 And they shall go into the holes of the rocks and into the caves of the earth, for the fear of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and for the tifereth of His excellence, when He arises to shake the earth mightily.

20 In that yom a man shall cast his idols of silver and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats;

21 To go into the clefts of the rocks and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for the fear of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and for the tifereth of His excellence, when He arises to shake the earth mightily.

22 Cease from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for he doesn’t count for much, does he?

3 For, see, The Master, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot, He takes away from Yahrushalayim and from Yahudah the stock and the store, the whole supply of lechem and the whole supply of mayim,

2 The mighty man and the man of war, the shophet and the navi and the diviner and the elder,

3 The captain of fifty and the honorable man and the counselor and the skilled craftsman and the expert enchanter.

4 And I will give children to be their rulers and babies shall rule over them.

5 And the people shall be oppressed, each one by another and each one by his neighbor: the child shall behave himself proudly against the zachan and the am ha-aretz against the honorable men.

6 When a man shall take hold of his brother of the bayit of his abba, saying, You have clothing, be our ruler and let this ruin be your responsibility:

7 In that yom shall he swear, saying, I am not a healer; for in my bayit is neither lechem nor clothing: do not make me a ruler of the people.

8 For Yahrushalayim is ruined and Yahudah has fallen: because their tongue and their doings are against 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, to provoke the eyes of His tifereth.

9 The look of their faces does witness against them; and they display their sin as Sedom, they do not hide it. Woe to their being! For they have brought evil on themselves.

10 Say you to the tzadik that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.

11 Woe to the wicked! There shall be evil with him: for the bribe of his hands shall be given to him.

12 As for My people, children are their oppressors and women rule over them. O My people, those who lead you cause you to go astray and destroy the derech of your paths.

13 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 stands up to plead and stands to judge the people.

14 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 will enter into mishpat with the zechanim of His people and its rulers: for you have eaten up the vineyard; the plunder of the poor is in your houses.

15 What do you mean when you beat My people to pieces and shame the faces of the poor? Says The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot.

16 Moreover 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 says, Because the daughters of Tzion are haughty and have their walk with stretched forth necks and seductive eyes, walking and mincing as they go and making a jingling with their anklets:

17 Therefore 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 will smite the daughters of Tzion with a scab on the keter of their heads and 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 will expose their nakedness.

18 In that yom 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 will take away the finery of their jingling ornaments around their feet and their headbands and their crescent shaped ornaments,

19 The chains and the bracelets and the veils,

20 The head coverings and the ornaments of the legs and the headbands and the string of beads and the perfume bottles and the earrings,

21 The rings and nose jewels,

22 The expensive robes and the mantles and the shawls and the purses,

23 The mirrors and the fine linen and the turbans and the large veils.

24 And it shall come to pass, that instead of a sweet smell there shall be a stink; and instead of a belt a rope; and instead of well set hair baldness; and instead of a nice robe a sackcloth skirt; and burning instead of tifereth.

25 Your men shall fall by the sword and your mighty in the war.

26 And her gates shall lament and mourn; and she being ruined shall sit upon the ground.

4 And in that yom seven women shall take hold of One Man, saying, We will eat our own lechem and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by your name, to take away our reproach.

2 In that yom shall the Branch of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 be beautiful and full of tifereth and the fruit of the land shall be excellent and comely for those that are escaped of Yisrael.

3 And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Tzion, and he that remains in Yahrushalayim, shall be called kadosh, even everyone that is written among the living in Yahrushalayim:

4 When 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Tzion and shall have purged the bloodguilt of Yahrushalayim from the midst of it by The Ruach of mishpat and by The Ruach of burning.

5 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 will create upon every dwelling place of Har Tzion and upon her gatherings, a cloud and smoke by yom and the shining of a flaming of fire by lyla: for upon all the tifereth shall be an eternal cloud covering.

6 And there shall be a sukkah for a shadow in the daytime from the heat and for a place of refuge and for a cover from storm and from rain.

5 Now will I shir to my Beloved a shir of my Beloved touching His vineyard. My well Beloved has a vineyard in a very fruitful hill:

2 And He fortified it in and removed the stones and planted it with the choicest vine and built a tower in the midst of it and also made a winepress in it: and He looked that it should bring forth grapes, but instead it brought forth wild grapes.

3 And now, O inhabitants of Yahrushalayim and men of Yahudah, please judge, between Me and My vineyard.

4 What could have been done more for My vineyard that I have not done in it? Why when I looked for grapes, it brought forth only wild grapes?

5 And now; I will tell you what I will do to My vineyard: I will take away the hedge of it and it shall be eaten up; and break down its walls and it shall be trampled down:

6 And I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor dug; but there shall come up weeds and thorn bushes: I will also command the clouds that they do not rain upon it.

7 For the vineyard of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot is Beit Yisrael and the men of Yahudah His pleasant plant: and He looked for mishpat, but found oppression; for tzedakah, but found weeping.

8 Woe to them that join bayit to bayit, that add field to field, until there is no room, that they may be placed alone in the midst of the land!

9 In My hearing 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot said, Of an emet many houses shall be desolate, even the great and fine ones, without inhabitant.

10 Yes, ten acres of vineyard shall yield one bath and a homer of zera shall yield an ephah.

11 Woe to them that rise up early in the boker, that they may pursue strong drink; that continue until lyla, until their wine inflames them!

12 And the harp and the lyre, the tambourine and flute and wine, are in their moadeem: but they regard not the work of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, neither consider the operation of His Hands.

13 Therefore My people are gone into exile because they have no da’at: and their honorable men are starved and their multitude dried up with thirst.

14 Therefore Sheol has enlarged itself and opened its mouth without measure: and their tifereth and their multitude and their pride and he that has unjust simcha, shall descend into it.

15 And the mean-spirited man shall be brought down and the mighty man shall be humbled and the eyes of the proud shall be humbled:

16 But 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot shall be exalted in mishpat and El that is kadosh shall be kadosh in tzedakah.

17 Then shall the lambs feed after their pasture and the waste places of the fat ones shall foreigners eat.

18 Woe to them that draw iniquity with cords of falsehood and sin as it were with wagon ropes:

19 That say, Let Him hurry His work, that we may see it: and let the counsel of the Kadosh-One of Yisrael draw near and come, that we may know it!

20 Woe to them that call evil tov and tov evil; that put darkness for ohr and ohr for darkness; that put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

21 Woe to them that are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight!

22 Woe to them that are mighty to drink wine and men of strength who mix strong drink:

23 Who justify the wicked for a bribe and take away the tzedakah of the tzadik from him!

24 Therefore as the fire devours the stubble and the flame consumes the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the Torah of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot and despised The Word of the Kadosh-One of Yisrael.

25 Therefore is the anger of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 lit against His people and He has stretched forth His hand against them and has smitten them: and the hills did tremble and their corpses were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this His anger has not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

26 And He will lift up a banner to the goyim from far and will whistle to them from the ends of the earth: and, see, they shall come with speed swiftly:

27 None shall be weary nor stumble among them; none shall slumber nor sleep; neither shall the belt of their loins be loosed, nor the latchet of their sandals be broken:

28 Whose arrows are sharp and all their bows bent, their horses’ hoofs shall seem like flint and their wheels like a whirlwind:

29 Their roaring shall be like a lion, they shall roar like young lions; they shall roar and lay hold of the prey and shall carry it away safely and none shall rescue it.

30 And in that yom they shall roar against them like the roaring of the sea: and if one looks to the land, see darkness and sorrow and the ohr is darkened by the clouds over it.

6 In the year that melech Uziyahu died I also saw 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 sitting upon a kesay, high and lifted up and the hem of His robe filled the Hekal.

2 Above it stood seraphim: each one had six wings; with two he covered his face and with two he covered his feet and with two he flew.

3 And one cried to another and said, Kadosh, Kadosh, Kadosh, is 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot: the whole earth is full of His tifereth.

4 And the posts of the door shook at the voice of him that cried and the Bayit was filled with smoke.

5 Then I said, Woe is me! For I am undone because I am a man of unclean lips and I live in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for my eyes have seen The Melech, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot.

6 Then flew one of the seraphim to me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from the altar:

7 And he laid it upon my mouth and said, See, this has touched your lips; and now your iniquity is taken away from you and your sin is purged.

8 Also I heard the voice of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, saying, Whom shall I send and who will go for Us? Then I said, Hinayne; send me.

9 And He said, Go and tell this people, You hear indeed, but understand nothing; and you see indeed, but perceive nothing.

10 For the levavot of these people are darkened and their ears are heavy and their eyes are closed; so that they cannot see with their eyes and hear with their ears and understand with their levavot and make teshuvah, to be forgiven and healed.

11 Then said I,𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, how long? And He answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitants and the houses without a man and the land be utterly desolate,

12 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land.

13 But yet in it shall be a tenth, and they shall return and shall be eaten: as a pistachio eytz and as an oak eytz, whose stump remains, after they cast their leaves: so the kadosh zera shall be the stump.

7 And it came to pass in the yamim of Achaz the son of Yotam, the son of Uziyahu, melech of Yahudah, that Retzin the melech of Aram and Pekach the son of Remalyah, melech of Yisrael, went up toward Yahrushalayim to war against it, but could not prevail against it.

2 And it was told to Beit Dawid, saying, Aram is in alliance with Efrayim. And their lev was moved and the lev of their people, as the eytzim of the woods are moved with the strong wind.

3 Then said 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 to Yeshayahu, Go forth now to meet Achaz and take Shear-Yahshuv your son, at the end of the channel of the upper pool in the highway of the Launderers’ Field,

4 And say to him, Take heed and be quiet; fear not, neither be troubled by these two stubs of smoking firebrands, for the fierce anger of Retzin melech of Aram and by the son of Remalyah.

5 Because Aram, Efrayim and the son of Remalyah, have taken evil counsel against you, saying,

6 Let us go up against Yahudah and trouble it and let us break them open for ourselves and set our own melech the son of Taveal in their midst,

7 This says The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, It shall not stand and neither shall it come to pass.

8 For the head of Aram is Dameshek and the head of Dameshek is Retzin; and within sixty-five years shall Efrayim be broken, that it will be Lo-Ami, not a people.

9 And the head of Efrayim is Shomron and the head of Shomron is Remalyah’s son. If you will not believe Me, surely you shall not be established.

10 Moreover 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 spoke again to Achaz, saying,

11 Ask an ot from 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Ahlohim; ask it in depth, or make the request highly difficult.

12 But Achaz said, I will not ask, neither will I test 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

13 And Yeshayahu said, Hear now, O Beit Dawid; Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will you weary my Ahlohim also?

14 Therefore 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Himself shall give you an ot; See, The Virgin shall conceive and bear a Son and you shall call His Name Emanu-El.

15 Butter and honey shall He eat, that He may know to refuse the evil and choose the tov.

16 For before the child shall know to refuse the evil and choose the tov, the land that you abhor shall be forsaken of both her melechim.

17 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall bring upon you and upon your people and upon your abba’s bayit, yamim that have not come, from the yom that Efrayim departed from Yahudah; even the melech of Ashshur.

18 And it shall come to pass in that yom, that 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall whistle for the fly that is in the uttermost part of the rivers of Mitzrayim and for the bee that is in the land of Ashshur.

19 And they shall come and shall rest all of them in the desolate valleys and in the holes of the rocks and upon all thorns and upon all the bushes.

20 In the same yom shall 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 humiliate those beyond the river, by the melech of Ashshur, the head and the hair of the feet: and they shall also shave off the beards.

21 And it shall come to pass in that yom, that a man shall nourish a young cow and two sheep;

22 And it shall come to pass, for the abundance of milk that they shall give, he shall eat butter: for everyone left in the land shall eat curds.

23 And it shall come to pass in that yom, that every place where there were a thousand vines worth a thousand shekels of silver, it shall even be for weeds and thorns.

24 With arrows and with bows shall men come there; because all the land shall become weeds and thorns.

25 And on all hills that shall be dug with the hoe, there shall not come there the fear of weeds and thorns: but it shall be for the sending forth of oxen and a place for sheep to roam.

8 Moreover 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 said to me, Take a large scroll and write in it with a man’s pen concerning Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz-the plunder hurries, the prey speeds along,

2 And I took with me reliable witnesses to record, Uriyahu the kohen and Zacharyahu the son of Berechiyah.

3 And I went in to the neviyah; and she conceived and bore a son. Then said 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 to me, Call his name Maher-shalal-hash-baz.

4 For before the child shall have da’at to cry, My abba and My eema, the riches of Dameshek and the plunder of Shomron shall be taken away before the melech of Ashshur.

5 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 spoke also to me again, saying,

6 Forasmuch as this people refuses the mayim of Shiloah that flow softly and instead have their simcha in Retzin and Remalyah’s son;

7 Now therefore, see,𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 brings up upon them the mayim of the river, strong and mighty, even the melech of Ashshur and all his tifereth: and he shall come up over all his channels and go over all his banks:

8 And he shall pass through Yahudah; he shall overflow and pass over, he shall reach even to the neck; and by the stretching out of his wings he shall fill the width of your land, O Emmanu-El.

9 Be shattered O you people, and you shall be broken in pieces; and listen, all of the far countries: prepare yourselves and you shall be broken in pieces; dress yourselves and you shall be broken in pieces.

10 Take counsel together and it shall come to nothing; speak the word and it shall not stand: for El is with us.

11 For 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 spoke this to me with a strong hand and instructed me that I should not follow in the derech of this people, saying;

12 Do not regard as an alliance what this nation calls an alliance; neither fear what they fear; nor be troubled by them.

13 Set Apart 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot Himself; Him shall you fear; and let Him be your awe.

14 And He shall be for a Place of Refuge; but for a Stone of stumbling and for a Rock of offence to both the houses of Yisrael, as a trap and a snare to the inhabitants of Yahrushalayim.

15 And many amongst both houses shall stumble, and fall and be broken and be snared and be taken .

16 Seal up the testimony; seal the Torah among My talmidim .

17 And I will wait upon 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, that hides His face from Beit Yaakov, and I will look for Him.

18 See, I and the children that 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has given Me are for signs and for wonders in Yisrael from 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot, who dwells on Har Tzion.

19 And when they shall say to you, Seek to them that have familiar ruachim and to sorcerers that whisper and mutter: should not a people seek for their Ahlohim ? Who asks the dead about the living?

20 To the Torah and to the Testimony: if they speak not according to this Word, it is because there is no Ohr in them.

21 And they shall pass through it, hard pressed and hungry: and it shall come to pass, that when they shall be hungry, they shall be angered, and they will curse their Melech and their Ahlohim, while looking upward.

22 And they shall look to the earth; and see tribulation and darkness, gloom in anguish; and they shall be driven to darkness.

9 Quickly act; drink this first O Zevulon and the land of Naphtali, on the other side of the Yarden, in Galil of the goyim.

2 The people that walked in darkness have seen a Great Ohr: they that live in the land of the shadow of death, upon them has The Ohr shined.

3 You have multiplied the nation, and increased the simcha of the greatest part of the nation: they simcha before You like the simcha in harvest, as men simcha when they divide the plunder.

4 For You have broken the yoke of his burden and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, as in the yom of Midyan.

5 For every voice, which is heard, brings fear and garments rolled in dahm; but this shall be with burning and fuel of fire.

6 For to us A Child is born, to us A Son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His Name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty-El, The Everlasting Abba, The Sar Shalom. And I will bring shalom upon the rulers and even His health.

7 Of the increase of His government and shalom there shall be no end, upon kesay Dawid and upon his malchut, to order it and to establish it with mishpat and with tzedakah from now on even le-olam-va-ed. The zeal of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot will perform this.

8 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 sent A Word into Yaakov and it has lighted upon Yisrael.

9 And all the people shall know, even Efrayim and the inhabitants of Shomron, that say in their pride and haughtiness of lev,

10 The bricks may have fallen down, but we will rebuild with cut stones: the sycamores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.

11 Therefore 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall set up the adversaries of Retzin against him and join his enemies together;

12 The Arameans before and the Plishtim behind; and they shall devour Yisrael with an open mouth. For all this His anger has not been turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

13 For the people do not turn to Him that smites them, neither do they seek 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot.

14 Therefore 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 will cut off from Yisrael head and tail, branch and reed, in one yom.

15 The zechanim and the honorable, he is the head; and the navi that teaches lies, he is the tail.

16 For the leaders of this people cause them to go astray; and they that are led by them are destroyed.

17 Therefore 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall have no simcha in their young men, neither shall He have rachamim on their fatherless and widows: for everyone is a hypocrite and an evildoer and every mouth speaks folly. For all this His anger has not turned away, but His hand is stretched out against us still.

18 For wickedness burns as the fire: it shall devour the weeds and thorns and shall kindle the thickets of the forest and they shall be rolled up like the lifting up of smoke.

19 Through the wrath of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot is the land darkened and the people shall be as fuel for the fire: no man shall spare his brother.

20 And he shall snatch food on the right hand and still be hungry; and he shall eat with the left hand and shall not be satisfied: they shall eat every man the flesh of his own arm:

21 Menasheh, Efrayim; and Efrayim, Menasheh: and they together shall be against Yahudah. For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

10 Woe to them that decree unrighteous decrees and that write unjust decrees which they have prescribed;

2 To turn aside the needy from My mishpatim and to take away the rights from the poor of My people, so that widows may be their prey and so that they may rob the fatherless!

3 And what will you do in the yom of your visitation of punishment and in the ruin that shall come from far? To whom will you run for help? And where will you leave your wealth?

4 Without Me they shall bow among the prisoners and they shall fall among the slain. For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

5 O Ashshur, the rod of My anger and the staff in whose hand is My displeasure.

6 I will send him against a hypocritical Torahless nation, and against the people of My wrath will I give him a command, to take the plunder and to take the prey and to trample them down like the mud of the streets.

7 But he does not intend to do this only, neither does his lev think that; but it is in his lev to destroy and cut off many goyim.

8 For he says, Are not my rulers all melechim?

9 Is not Kalno as Karchemish? Is not Hamath as Arphad? Is not Shomron as Dameshek?

10 Just as my hand has found the malchutim of the idols, whose graven images did exceed those of Yahrushalayim and of Shomron;

11 Shall I not, as I have done to Shomron and her idols, do also to Yahrushalayim and her idols?

12 Therefore it shall come to pass, that when 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has performed His whole work upon Har Tzion and on Yahrushalayim, I will punish the fruit of the proud lev of the melech of Ashshur and the boasting of his proud looks.

13 For he says, By the strength of my hand I have done it and by my chochmah; for I am clever: and I have removed the boundaries of the goyim and have robbed their treasures and I have put down the inhabitants like a brave man:

14 And my hand has found as a nest the riches of the people: and as one gathers eggs that are left, have I gathered all the earth; and there was none that moved the wing, or opened their mouth, with even a peep.

15 Shall the axe boast itself against him that cuts with it? Or, shall the saw magnify itself against him that saws with it? As if the rod could wave those that lift it up, or as if the staff could lift that which is not wood.

16 Therefore shall The Master, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot, send among his rich ones leanness; and instead of His tifereth He shall kindle a burning like the burning of a fire.

17 And The Ohr of Yisrael shall be for a fire and His Kadosh-One as a flame: and it shall burn and devour his thorns and his weeds in one yom;

18 And shall consume the tifereth of his forest and of his fruitful field, both being and gooff: and they shall be as when an invalid wastes away.

19 And the rest of the eytzim of his forest shall be few, so that a child may count them.

20 And it shall come to pass in that yom, that the restored remnant of Yisrael, and such as have escaped belonging to Beit Yaakov, shall no more again trust him that smote them; but shall trust and lean upon 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, the Kadosh-One of Yisrael, in emet.

21 The remnant shall return, even the remnant of Yaakov, to the Mighty-El.

22 For though your people O Yisrael be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return: their numbers decreased yet overflowing with tzedakah.

23 For The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot shall make a full end of all that He has determined, in the midst of all the earth.

24 Therefore this says The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot, O My people that live in Tzion, be not afraid of Ashshur: he shall smite you with a rod and shall lift up his staff against you, after the manner of Mitzrayim.

25 For yet a very little while and the displeasure shall cease and My anger will be to their destruction.

26 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot shall stir up a beating for him like the slaughter of Midyan at the rock of Orev: and as His rod was upon the sea, so shall He lift it up after the manner of Mitzrayim.

27 And it shall come to pass in that yom, that his burden shall be removed from your shoulder and his yoke from off your neck and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.

28 He is come to Ayath; he is passed to Migron; at Michmash he has laid up his supplies:

29 They are gone over the passage: they have taken up their lodging at Geva; Ramah is afraid; Givat of Shaul has fled.

30 Lift up your voice, O daughter of Galliym: cause it to be heard to Laysh, O poor Anathoth.

31 Madmenah is removed; the inhabitants of Gevim gather themselves to flee.

32 As yet shall he remain at Nov that yom: he shall shake his hand against the har of the daughter of Tzion, the hill of Yahrushalayim.

33 See, The Master,𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot, shall lop off a branch with fear: and the tall ones are cut down and the haughty shall be humbled.

34 And He shall cut down the thickets of the forest with iron and Levanon shall fall as a mighty one.

11 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Yishai and a Netzer-Branch shall grow out of His roots:

2 And The Ruach Hakodesh of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall rest upon Him, The Ruach of chochmah and binah, The Ruach of counsel and strength, The Ruach of da’at and Shabbat guarding piety and the fear of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄;

3 And He shall be filled with quick binah in the fear of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄: and He shall not judge after the sight of His eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of His ears:

4 But with tzedakah shall He judge the poor and decide with equity for the meek of the earth: and He shall smite the earth with the rod of His mouth, and with The Ruach of His lips shall He slay the wicked.

5 And tzedakah shall be the belt of His loins and faithfulness the belt of His waist.

6 The wolf also shall live with the lamb and the leopard shall lie down with the young goat and the calf and the young lion and the fattened lamb together and a little child shall lead them.

7 And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together and the lion shall eat straw like an ox.

8 And the nursing child shall play on the hole of the cobra and the weaned child shall put his hand on the viper’s nest.

9 They shall not do evil nor destroy in My entire kadosh har: for the earth shall be full of the da’at of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, as the mayim covers the sea.

10 And in that yom there shall be a root of Yishai, which shall stand as a miraculous banner to the people; to it shall the goyim seek, and His rest shall be with tifereth.

11 And it shall come to pass in that yom, that 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall set His hand again a second time to recover and restore the remnant of His people, who shall be left, from Ashshur, and from Mitzrayim and from Pathros and from Kush and from Eylam and from Shinar, and from Hamath and from the coastlands of the sea.

12 And He shall set up a miraculous Banner for the goyim and He shall gather the outcasts of Yisrael, and gather together the dispersed of Yahudah from the four corners of the earth.

13 The envy also of Efrayim shall depart, and the adversaries of Yahudah shall be cut off. Efrayim shall not envy Yahudah, and Yahudah shall not trouble Efrayim.

14 But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Plishtim toward the west; they shall plunder them of the east together they shall lay their hands upon Edom and Moav; and the children of Ammon shall be subjected and obey them.

15 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Mitzrayim Sea; and with His mighty Ruach shall He shake His hand over the river, and shall break it into seven streams and shall cause Yisrael to trample it in their sandals.

16 And there shall be a highway for the remnant of His people, who shall be left, from Ashshur; like as it was for kol Yisrael in the yom that they came up out of the land of Mitzrayim.

12 And in that yom you shall say, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, I will hallel You: though You were angry with me, Your anger is turned away and You have comforted me.

2 See, El is my Yahusha ; I will trust and will not be afraid: for YAH-𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is my Strength and my Shir; He also has been born as my Yahusha.

3 Therefore with simcha shall you draw mayim out of the wells of YAHUSHA.

4 And in that yom shall you say, BARUCH HA-SHEM 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, call upon His Name, declare His doings among the goyim, make mention that His Name is exalted.

5 Sing to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, for He has done excellent things: this is known in all the earth.

6 Cry out and shout, inhabitants of Tzion: for great is the Kadosh-One of Yisrael in the midst of you.

13 The burden of Bavel, which Yeshayahu the son of Amotz did see.

2 Lift up a banner upon the high har, exalt the voice to them, wave the hand that they may go into the gates of the nobles.

3 I have commanded My kadosh ones, I have also called My mighty ones for My anger, even them that simcha in My greatness.

4 The noise of a multitude in the mountains, like a great people; a tumultuous noise of the malchutim of the goyim gathered together: 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot gathers the army for the battle.

5 They come from a far country, from the end of the shamayim, even 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and the weapons of His displeasure, to destroy the whole land.

6 Howl, for Yom 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is at hand. It shall come as a destruction from The Almighty.

7 Therefore shall all hands be faint and every man’s lev shall melt:

8 And they shall be afraid: pains and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that labors: they shall be amazed at one another; their faces shall be a flame.

9 See, Yom 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 comes, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the earth desolate: and He shall destroy the sinners out of it.

10 For the cochavim of the shamayim and its constellations shall not give their ohr: the shemesh shall be darkened in its going forth and the yarayach shall not send her ohr to shine.

11 And I will punish the olam for their evil and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogance of the proud to cease and will lay low the pride of the ruthless.

12 I will make a mortal man scarcer than fine gold; even mankind scarcer than the gold of Ophir.

13 Therefore I will shake the shamayim and the earth shall move out of its place, in the wrath of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot and in the yom of His fierce anger.

14 And man shall be as the hunted gazelle and as a sheep that no man takes up: every man shall turn to his own people and flee into his own land.

15 Each one that is found shall be thrust through; and everyone that is joined to them shall fall by the sword.

16 Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be plundered and their wives raped.

17 See, I will stir up the Medes against them, who shall not regard silver; and as for gold, they shall not delight in it.

18 Their bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eye shall not spare children.

19 And Bavel, the tifereth of all malchutim, the tifereth of the Chaldeans’ pride shall become as when Ahlohim overthrew Sedom and Amorah.

20 It shall never be inhabited, neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation: neither shall the Arabian tar his tent; neither shall the shepherds rest their folds there.

21 But wild beasts of the desert shall lie there; and their houses shall be full of owls; ostriches shall live there and wild goats shall dance there.

22 And owls shall cry in their palaces and jackals in their beautiful temples: and her time is near to come and her yamim shall not be prolonged.

14 For 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 will have rachamim on Yaakov and will yet choose Yisrael, and set them in their own land: and the foreigners shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to Beit Yaakov.

2 And the goyim shall take them and bring them to their place: and Beit Yisrael shall possess them in the land of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 as avadim and female avadim: and they shall take them as captives, whose captives they once were; and they shall rule over their oppressors.

3 And it shall come to pass in the yom that 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall give you rest from your sorrow and from your fear and from the hard bondage in which you were made to serve others,

4 So that you shall take up this mishle against the melech of Bavel and say, How has the oppressor ceased! The golden city ceased!

5 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has broken the staff of the wicked and the scepter of their rulers.

6 He who smote the people in wrath with continual blows, he that ruled the goyim in anger, is persecuted and none can hinder it.

7 The whole earth is at rest and is quiet: they break forth into singing.

8 Yes, the cypress eytzim simcha at you and the cedars of Levanon, saying, Since you were cut down, no woodcutter has come up against us.

9 Sheol from beneath is moved to meet you at your upcoming death: it stirs up the dead for you, even all the ruling ones of the earth; it has raised up from their thrones all the melechim of the goyim.

10 All they shall speak and say to you, Have you also become weak like us? Are you become like us?

11 Your pride is brought down to Sheol and the noise of your stringed instruments: the worm is spread under you and the worms cover you.

12 How are you fallen from the shamayim, O Heilel, son of the boker-ben shachar! How are you cut down to the ground, you who did weaken the goyim!

13 For you have said in your lev, I will ascend into the shamayim, I will exalt my kesay above the cochavim of El: I will sit also upon the Har of the Kehilla, on the sides of the north.

14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like El-Elyon.

15 Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, to the sides of the pit.

16 They that see you shall ponder and stare at you, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that shook malchutim;

17 That made the olam as a wilderness and destroyed its cities; that did not open the bayit of his prisoners?

18 All the melechim of the goyim, even all of them, lie in tifereth, every one in his own grave.

19 But you are cast out of your grave like an abominable branch and as the garment of those that are slain, who have been thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; like a trampled corpse.

20 You shall not be joined with them in burial because you have destroyed your land and slain your people: the zera of evildoers shall never be mentioned.

21 Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their ahvot; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the olam with cities.

22 For I will rise up against them, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot and cut off from Bavel the name and the remnant and the son and the nephew, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

23 I will also make it a possession for the owls and pools of mayim and I will sweep it with the broom of destruction, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot.

24 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot has sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand:

25 That I will break Ashshur in My land and upon My mountains trample him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from off them and his burden depart from off their shoulders.

26 This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the goyim.

27 For 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot has purposed this and who shall annul it? And His hand is stretched out and who shall turn it back?

28 In the year that melech Achaz died this following burden was received.

29 Gilah not, O Philistia because the rod of him that smote you is broken: for out of the serpent’s root shall come forth a viper and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent.

30 And the bachor of the poor shall feed and the needy shall lie down in safety: and I will kill your root with famine and shall slay your remnant.

31 Howl, O gate; cry, O city! All of Philistia, shall melt: for there shall come from the north a smoke and none shall be left at their pagan moadeem.

32 What shall one then answer the messengers of the nation? That 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has founded Tzion and the poor of His people shall trust in it.

15 The burden of Moav. Because in the lyla, Ar of Moav is laid waste and brought to silence; because in the lyla, Kir of Moav is laid waste and brought to silence;

2 He is gone up to the Bayith and to Divon, the high places, to weep: Moav shall wail over Nevo and over Medeva: on all their heads shall be baldness and every beard cut shall be cut off.

3 In their streets they shall put on themselves sackcloth: on the tops of their houses and in their streets, every one shall wail, weeping abundantly.

4 And Cheshbon shall cry and in Elealeh: their voice shall be heard even to Yahatz: therefore the armed soldiers of Moav shall cry out; their chayim shall tremble within them.

5 My lev shall cry out for Moav; her fugitives shall flee to Tzoar, like a heifer of three years old: for with weeping shall they go up by the ascending road of Luhith; for in the derech of Horonayim they shall raise up a cry of destruction.

6 For the mayim of Nimrim shall be desolate: for the hay will wither away, the grass fails, there is no green thing.

7 Therefore the abundance they have gotten and that which they have laid up, shall they carry away to the brook of the willows.

8 For the cry has gone all around the borders of Moav; its howling to Eglayim and its howling to Be-er-Eylim.

9 For the mayim of Dimon shall be full of dahm: for I will bring more upon Dimon, lions upon him that escapes from Moav and upon the remnant of the land.

16 Send a lamb to the ruler of the land from Sela to the wilderness, to the har of the daughter of Tzion.

2 For it shall be, that, as a wandering bird cast out of its nest, so the daughters of Moav shall be at the fords of Arnon.

3 Take counsel, execute mishpat; make your shadow as the lyla in the middle of the yom; hide the outcasts; betray not him that wanders.

4 Let My outcasts live with you, Moav; be a shelter to them from the face of the plunderer: for the extortioner is at an end, the plunderer ceases, the oppressors are consumed out of the land.

5 And in rachamim shall the kesay be established: and He shall sit upon it in emet in the Sukkah of Dawid, judging and seeking mishpat and bringing tzedakah speedily.

6 We have heard of the pride of Moav; he is very proud: even proud of his pride and his arrogance: but his lies shall not be so.

7 Therefore shall Moav wail for Moav, everyone shall wail: for the foundations of Kir-Hareseth shall you mourn; surely they are beaten.

8 For the fields of Cheshbon lose lev and the vine of Sivmah: the mighty men of the heathen have broken down the choice plants, they are come even to Yazer, they wandered through the wilderness: her branches are stretched out, they are gone over the sea.

9 Therefore I will bewail with the weeping of Yazer for the vine of Sivmah: I will mayim you with my tears, O Cheshbon and Elealeh: for an oppressor has come against your summer fruits and your harvest is fallen.

10 And simcha is taken away and simcha out of the plentiful field; and in the vineyards there shall be no singing, neither shall there be shouting: the treaders shall trample out no wine in their presses; I have made their vine treaders to cease.

11 Therefore my inward parts shall sound like a harp for Moav and my inward parts for Kir-Haresh.

12 And it shall come to pass, when it is seen that Moav is weary on the high place, that she shall come to her kadosh place to make tefillah; but she shall accomplish nothing.

13 This is the word that 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has spoken concerning Moav in times past.

14 But now 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has spoken, saying, Within three years, as the years of a hired man, the tifereth of Moav shall be despised, with all that great multitude; and the remnant shall be very small and feeble.

17 The burden of Dameshek. See, Dameshek is taken away from being a city and it shall be a ruinous heap.

2 The cities of Aroer are forsaken: they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down and none shall make them afraid.

3 Their stronghold also shall cease from Efrayim and the malchut from Dameshek and the remnant of Aram: they shall be as the tifereth of the children of Yisrael, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot.

4 And in that yom it shall come to pass, that the tifereth of Yaakov shall be made thin and the fatness of his flesh shall be lean.

5 And it shall be as when the harvester gathers the grain and reaps the ears with his arm; and it shall be as he that gathers ears in the Valley of Refayim.

6 Yet gleaning grapes shall be left in it, as the shaking of an olive eytz, two, or three olives in the top of the uppermost branch, four, or five in the outmost fruitful branches of it, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Ahlohim of Yisrael.

7 At that yom shall a man look to his Maker and his eyes shall have respect for the Kadosh-One of Yisrael.

8 And he shall not look to the altars, the work of his hands, neither shall he respect that which his fingers have made, neither the Asherim, nor the images.

9 In that yom shall his strong cities be as a forsaken forest and like a sheikdom, which was left destitute because of the children of Yisrael: and there shall be ruin.

10 Because you have forgotten the Ahlohim of your YAHUSHA and have not been mindful of The Rock of your strength, therefore shall you plant pleasant plants and shall turn out foreign branches:

11 In the yom shall you make your plant to grow and in the boker shall you make your zera to flourish: but the harvest shall be as a heap in the yom of grief and desperate pain.

12 Woe to the army of many goyim, who make a noise like the noise of the seas; and to the rushing of goyim, that make a rushing like the rushing of mighty mayim!

13 The goyim shall roar like the rushing of many mayim: but Ahlohim shall rebuke them and they shall flee far away and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind and like whirling objects in the whirlwind.

14 And see at sundown fear; and before the boker it is gone. This is the portion of them that plunder us and the lot of them that rob us.

18 Woe to the land shadowing with wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia:

2 That sends ambassadors by the sea, even in vessels of reeds upon the mayim, saying, Go, swift messengers, to a nation scattered and peeled, to a people feared from their beginning forward; a nation mighty but trampled down, whose land the rivers have divided!

3 All you inhabitants of the olam and dwellers on the earth, see, when He lifts up a banner on the mountains; and when He blows a shofar, listen.

4 For this is what 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 said to me, I will take My rest and I will look from My dwelling place like a clear heat upon the river and like a cloud of dew in the yom of harvest.

5 For before the harvest, when the bud is perfect and the sour grape is ripening in the flower, He shall both cut off the twigs with pruning hooks and take away and cut down the spreading branches.

6 They shall be left together to the fowls of the mountains and to the beasts of the earth: and the fowls shall prey upon them and all the beasts of the earth shall devour them.

7 In that time shall the present be brought to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot of a people scattered, tall and darkened and from a people feared from their beginning forward; a nation dishonored and trampled under foot, whose land the rivers have divided, to the place of the Name of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot, to Har Tzion.

19 The burden of Mitzrayim. See, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 rides upon a swift cloud and He shall come into Mitzrayim: and the idols of Mitzrayim shall tremble at His presence and the lev of Mitzrayim shall melt in the midst of it.

2 And I will set the Mitzrim against the Mitzrim: and they shall fight every one against his brother and every one against his neighbor; city against city and malchut against malchut.

3 And the ruach of Mitzrayim shall fail in the midst of it; and I will destroy the counsel of it: and they shall seek their idols and their charmers and those that have familiar ruachim and their sorcerers.

4 And the Mitzrim will I give over into the hand of a cruel master; and a fierce melech shall rule over them, says The Master,𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot.

5 And the mayim shall fail from the Nile and the river shall be wasted and dried up.

6 And they shall turn the rivers far away; and the streams of defense shall be emptied and dried up: the reeds and rushes shall wither.

7 The rushes by the river, by the mouth of the river and everything sown by the river, shall wither, be driven away and be no more.

8 The fishermen also shall mourn and all they that cast their angle into the river shall lament and they that spread nets upon the mayim shall lose lev.

9 Moreover they that work in fine cotton and they that weave fine fabric, shall be embarrassed.

10 And its foundations shall be broken; all that work for wages shall be grieved.

11 Surely the rulers of Tzoan are fools, the counsels of the wise counselors of Pharaoh are become brutish: how then do you say to Pharaoh, I am the son of the wise, the son of ancient melechim?

12 Where are they? Where are your wise men? And let them show you now and let them know what 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot has planned for Mitzrayim.

13 The rulers of Tzoan have become fools; the rulers of Noph are deceived; they have also seduced Mitzrayim, even they that are the cornerstone of her tribes.

14 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has mixed a perverse ruach in the midst of it: and they have caused Mitzrayim to go astray in all her works, as a drunk man staggers in his vomit.

15 Neither shall there be any work to do in Mitzrayim, which the head, or tail, palm branch, or reed, may do.

16 In that yom shall Mitzrayim become like women: and it shall be afraid and fear because of the shaking of the Hand of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot, which He shakes over it.

17 And the land of Yahudah shall be a fear to Mitzrayim, everyone that makes mention of it shall be afraid within himself because of the counsel of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot, which He has determined against it.

18 In that yom shall five cities in the land of Mitzrayim speak the language of Kanaan, and swear to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot; and one shall be called, The City of Tzedakah.

19 In that yom shall there be an altar to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 in the midst of the land of Mitzrayim, and a standing column at its border to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

20 And it shall be for an ot and for a witness to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot in the land of Mitzrayim: for they shall cry to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 because of the oppressors and He shall send them a Savior, and a Great One and He shall deliver them

21 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall be known to Mitzrayim, and the Mitzrim shall know 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 in that yom, and shall do sacrifice and oblation; they shall vow a vow to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and perform it.

22 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall smite Mitzrayim: He shall smite and heal it: and they shall return even to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and He shall be sought by them and He shall heal them.

23 In that yom shall there be a highway out of Mitzrayim to Ashshur and the Ashshurite shall come into Mitzrayim and the Mitzri into Ashshur and the Mitzrim shall serve with the Ashshurim.

24 In that yom shall Yisrael be the third with Mitzrayim and with Ashshur, even a bracha in the midst of the earth:

25 Whom 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot shall bless, by saying, Blessed be Mitzrayim My people and Ashshur the work of My hands and Yisrael My inheritance.

20 In the year that Tartan came to Ashdod, when Sargon the melech of Ashshur sent him and fought against Ashdod and took it;

2 At the same time spoke 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 by Yeshayahu the son of Amotz, saying, Go and loose the sackcloth from off your loins and put off your sandals from your foot. And he did so, walking naked and barefoot.

3 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 said, Like My eved Yeshayahu has walked naked and barefoot three years for an ot and wonder against Mitzrayim and upon Ethiopia;

4 So shall the melech of Ashshur lead away the Mitzri prisoners and the Ethiopians captives, young and old, naked and barefoot, even with their buttocks uncovered, to the shame of Mitzrayim.

5 And they shall be afraid and ashamed of Ethiopia their expectation and of Mitzrayim their pride.

6 And the inhabitant of this coastland shall say in that yom, See, such is our expectation, wherever we flee for help to be delivered from the melech of Ashshur: and so how then shall we escape?

21 The burden of the desert of the sea. As whirlwinds in the south pass through; so it comes from the desert, from an awesome land.

2 A grievous vision is declared to me; the treacherous dealer deals treacherously and the plunderer spoils. Go up, O Eylam: besiege it, O Media, all the sighing of it I will make cease.

3 Therefore are my loins filled with pain: pains have taken hold upon me, as the pains of a woman in labor: I was bowed down at the hearing of it; I was dismayed at the seeing of it.

4 My lev panted, fear overwhelmed me: the lyla of my pleasure has He turned into fear for me.

5 Prepare the shulchan, watch in the watchtower, eat and drink: arise, you rulers and anoint the shield.

6 For this has 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 said to me, Go, set a watchman and let him declare what he sees.

7 And he saw a mirkavah with a couple of horsemen, a mirkavah of donkeys and a mirkavah of camels; and he listened attentively, very carefully:

8 And he cried, A lion: my master, I stand continually upon the watchtower in the daytime and I am set in my post every lyla:

9 And, see, here comes a mirkavah of men, with a couple of horsemen. And he answered and said, Bavel is fallen, it is fallen; and all the graven images of her ahlahim He has broken to the ground.

10 O my threshing and the grain of my floor: that which I have heard from 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot, the Ahlohim of Yisrael, have I declared to you.

11 The burden of Dumah. He calls to me out of Seir, Watchman, how much of the lyla? Watchman, how much of the lyla?

12 The watchman said, boker came and also the lyla: if you will inquire, inquire and come again.

13 The burden upon Arabia. In the forest in Arabia shall you lodge, O you traveling companies of Dedanites.

14 The inhabitants of the land of Tema brought mayim to him that was thirsty, they met the fugitive with lechem.

15 For they fled from the swords, from the drawn sword and from the bent bow and from the stress of war.

16 For this has 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 said to me, Within a year, according to the year of a hired worker, all the men of Kedar shall come to an end:

17 And the residue of the number of archers, the mighty men of the children of Kedar, shall be diminished: for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Ahlohim of Yisrael has spoken it.

22 The burden of the Valley of Vision. What troubles you now that you all have gone up to the housetops?

2 You that are full of turmoil, a tumultuous city and a noisy city: your slain men are not slain with the sword, nor are dead in battle.

3 All your rulers have fled together, the archers bind them: all that are found in you are bound together, who have fled from far.

4 Therefore said I, Look away from me; I will weep bitterly, don’t bother to comfort me because of the spoiling of the daughter of my people.

5 For it is a yom of trouble and of trampling down and of perplexity by The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot in the Valley of Vision, breaking down the walls and of crying to the mountains.

6 And Eylam bore the quiver with mirkavot of men and horsemen and Kir carried the shield.

7 And it shall come to pass, that your best valleys shall be full of mirkavot and the horsemen shall set themselves in battle array at the gate.

8 And He removed the covering of Yahudah and you did look in that yom to the armor of the bayit of the forest.

9 You have seen also the breaches of the city of Dawid, that they are many: and you gathered together the mayim of the lower pool.

10 And you have numbered the houses of Yahrushalayim and the houses have you broken down to fortify the wall.

11 You made also a ditch between the two walls for the mayim of the old pool: but you have not sought its Maker, neither seen Him that made it long ago.

12 And in that yom The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot called for weeping and for mourning and for baldness and for girding with sackcloth:

13 And see simcha upon simcha, slaying oxen and killing sheep, eating meat and drinking wine: let us eat and drink; for tomorrow we shall die.

14 And it was revealed in my ears by 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot, Surely this iniquity shall not be purged from you until you die, says The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot.

15 This says The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot, Go, get to this treasurer, even to Shevna, who is over the bayit and say,

16 What have you here? And who have you here that you have cut out a tomb here, as he that cuts out a tomb on high and that carves a home for himself in a rock?

17 See, O man, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 will throw you out and will surely grab you.

18 He will surely violently turn and toss you like a ball into a large country: there shall you die and there the mirkavot of your tifereth shall be the shame of your master’s bayit.

19 And I will drive you from your office and from your position He shall pull you down.

20 And it shall come to pass in that yom, that I will call My eved Elyakim the son of Hilkiyahu:

21 And I will clothe him with your robe and strengthen him with your belt and I will give your government into his hand: and he shall be an abba to the inhabitants of Yahrushalayim and to Beit Yahudah.

22 And the key of Beit Dawid will I lay upon His shoulder; so He shall open and none shall shut; and He shall shut and none shall open.

23 And I will fasten Him as a nail in a sure place; and He shall become a kesay of tifereth to His Abba’s Bayit.

24 And they shall hang upon Him all the tifereth of His Abba’s Bayit, the honorable and the noble men and all the vessels of small quantity, from the cups, even to the jars.

25 In that yom, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot, shall the nail that is fastened in the secure place be removed and be cut down and fall; and the burden that was upon it shall be cut off: for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has spoken it.

23 The burden of Tsor. Howl, you ships of Tarshish; for it is laid waste, so that there is no bayit, no entering in: from the land of Chittim it is revealed to us.

2 Be still, you inhabitants of the coastland; you whom the merchants of Tzidon, that pass over the sea, have replenished.

3 And on great mayim the grain of Sihor, the harvest of the river, is her revenue; and she was a market place of the goyim.

4 Be ashamed, O Tzidon: for the sea has spoken, even the strength of the sea, saying, I have not labored, nor brought forth children, neither do I nourish up young men, nor bring up virgins.

5 Like the report concerning Mitzrayim, so shall they be sorely pained at the report of Tsor.

6 Pass over to Tarshish; wail, you inhabitants of the coastland.

7 Is this your joyous city, whose antiquity is from yamim of old? Whose feet shall carry her far off to sojourn.

8 Who has taken this counsel against Tsor, the crowning city, whose merchants are rulers, whose traders are the honorable men of the earth?

9 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot has purposed it, to stain the pride of all its tifereth and to bring into contempt all the honorable of the earth.

10 Pass through your land as a river, O daughter of Tarshish: there is no more strength.

11 He stretched out His hand over the sea, He shook the malchutim: 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has given a commandment against Kanaan, to destroy its strongholds.

12 And He said, You shall no more have your simcha, O oppressed virgin, daughter of Tzidon: arise, pass over to Chittim; there also shall you have no rest.

13 See the land of the Chaldeans; this people did not exist, Ashshur founded it for those wild beasts that live in the wilderness: they set up the towers of it, they raised up the palaces of it; so that it has been made a ruin.

14 Howl, you ships of Tarshish: for your stronghold is laid waste.

15 And it shall come to pass in that yom, that Tsor shall be forgotten seventy years, according to the yamim of one melech: after the end of seventy years shall Tsor shir as a harlot.

16 Take a harp, go around the city, you harlot that has been forgotten; make sweet melodies, shir many shirim, that you may be remembered.

17 And it shall come to pass after the end of seventy years, that 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 will visit Tsor and she shall turn to her hire and shall commit fornication with all the malchutim of the olam upon the face of the earth.

18 And her merchandise and her hire shall be kadosh to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄: it shall not be treasured nor laid up; for her merchandise shall be for them that live before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, to eat sufficiently and for durable clothing.

24 See, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 makes the earth empty and makes it a ruin and turns it upside down and scatters abroad its inhabitants.

2 And it shall be, as with the people, so with the kohen; as with the eved, so with his master; as with the female eved, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of interest so with the giver of interest to him.

3 The earth shall be utterly emptied and utterly plundered: for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has spoken this Word.

4 The earth mourns and fades away, the olam languishes and fades away and the proud people of the earth lose lev.

5 The earth also is defiled under its inhabitants because they have transgressed the Torot, changed the chukim and broken the everlasting brit.

6 Therefore has the curse, ha Allah devoured the earth and they that live in it are ruined: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned and few men left.

7 The new wine mourns, the vine languishes, all the glad at lev do sigh.

8 The simcha of tambourines ceases, the noise of them that gilah ends, the simcha of the harp ceases.

9 They shall not drink wine with a shir; strong drink shall be bitter to them that drink it.

10 The city is broken down: every bayit is shut, so that no man may enter.

11 There is a crying for wine in the streets; all simcha is darkened, the simcha of the earth shall be gone.

12 In the city is left ruin and the gate is smitten with destruction.

13 When this shall be in the midst of the earth among the goyim, there shall be like the shaking of an olive eytz and as the gleaning grapes when the grape harvest is done.

14 They shall lift up their voice, they shall shir for the excellency of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, they shall cry aloud from the sea.

15 Therefore lift up 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 in the east, even the Name of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Ahlohim of Yisrael in the coastlands of the sea.

16 From the farthest parts of the earth we have heard shirim, even tifereth to the Tzadik

One. But I said, I am wasting away, woe to me! The treacherous have dealt treacherously; yes, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously.

17 Fear and the pit and the trap, are upon you, O inhabitants of the earth.

18 And it shall come to pass, that he who flees from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that comes up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the trap: for the windows from on high are open and the foundations of the earth do shake.

19 The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is utterly removed and the earth is moved exceedingly.

20 The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard and shall be removed like a little hut; and the transgression of it shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall and not rise again.

21 And it shall come to pass in that yom, that 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall punish the army of the high ones that are on high, and the melechim of the earth upon the earth.

22 And they shall be gathered together, as prisoners are gathered in the pit and shall be shut up in the prison and after many yamim shall they be visited with mishpat.

23 Then the yarayach shall blush and the shemesh shall be ashamed, when 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot shall reign in Har Tzion and in Yahrushalayim, before His esteemed zechanim.

25 O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, You are my Ahlohim; I will exalt You, I will hallel Your Name; for You have done wonderful things; Your eternal counsels are faithfulness and emet.

2 For You have made of a city a heap; a defended city a ruin: a palace of foreigners to be a city no more; it shall never be built.

3 Therefore the strong people will give You tifereth; the cities of the ruthless goyim shall fear You.

4 For You have been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the ruach of the ruthless is as a storm against the wall.

5 You shall bring down the noise of foreigners, as the heat in a dry place; even the heat with the shadow of a cloud: the heirs of the ruthless shall be brought low.

6 And in this har shall 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot make for all people a moed of choice pieces, a moed of old wines, of choice things full of marrow, of old wines, well refined.

7 And He will destroy in this har the face of the covering cast over all goyim and the veil that is spread over all goyim.

8 He will swallow up death in victory; and The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the reproach of His people shall He take away from off all the earth: for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has spoken it.

9 And it shall be said in that yom, See, this is our Ahlohim; we have waited for Him and He will save us: this is 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄; we have waited for Him, we will be in gilah and simcha in His Yahusha.

10 For in this har shall the Hand of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 rest and Moav shall be trampled down under Him, even as straw is trampled down for the dunghill.

11 And He shall spread forth His Hands in their midst, as he that swims spreads forth his hands to swim: and He shall bring down their pride together with the spoils of their hands.

12 And the high stronghold of your walls shall He bring down, laid low, leveled to the ground, even to the dust.

26 In that yom shall this shir be sung in the land of Yahudah; We have a strong city; Ahlohim will appoint Yahusha as our walls and ramparts.

2 Open the gates, that the tzadik nation who guards the emet may enter in.

3 You will keep him in perfect shalom, whose mind is fixed on You: because he trusts in You.

4 Trust in 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 le-olam-va-ed: for in YAH-𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, is everlasting strength:

5 For He brings down them that live on high; the proud city, He lays it low; He lays it low, even to the ground; He brings it even to the dust.

6 The foot shall trample it down, even the feet of the poor and the steps of the needy.

7 The derech of the just is uprightness: You, most tzadik, do weigh the derech of the just.

8 Yes, in the derech of Your mishpatim, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, have we waited for You; the desire of our being is for Your Name, and for the very remembrance of You.

9 With my being have I desired You in the lyla; yes, with all my ruach within me will I seek You early: for when Your mishpatim are in the earth, the inhabitants of this olam will learn tzedakah.

10 If chen be showed to the wicked, yet he still will not learn tzedakah: in the land of the tzadikim he will deal unjustly and will not see the excellency of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

11 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, when Your hand was lifted up, they did not see: but they shall see and be ashamed for the zeal of Your people; yes, let the fire of the oven devour Your enemies.

12 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, You will ordain shalom for us: for You also have done all our works in us.

13 O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 our Ahlohim, other masters besides You have had rule over us: but only in You will we make mention of Your Name.

14 They are dead, they shall not live; they are deceased, they shall not rise: therefore have You visited and destroyed them and made all their memory to perish.

15 You shall increase the nation, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, You shall increase the nation: You are lifted up: You had removed the nation far to all the ends of the earth.

16 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, in trouble have they visited You, they poured out a tefillah when Your chastening was upon them.

17 Like a woman with child, that draws near the time of her delivery, is in pain and cries out in her pains; so have we been in Your sight, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

18 We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not worked out any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the olam fallen.

19 Your dead men shall live; together with my dead gooff shall they arise. Awake and shir, You that dwell in the dust: for your dew is as the dew of first ohr and the earth shall give birth to the departed healed ruachim.

20 Come, my people, enter into your rooms, and shut your doors all around you: hide yourselves for just a little while, until the displeasure is past.

21 For, see, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 comes out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her bloodguilt and shall no longer cover her slain.

27 In that yom 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 with His severe and great and strong sword shall punish Leviathan the piercing serpent, even Leviathan that crooked serpent; and He shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.

2 In that yom shir to her, A vineyard of red wine.

3 I 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 do keep it; I will mayim it every moment: lest any hurt it, I will keep it lyla and yom.

4 Wrath is not in Me: who would set the weeds and thorns against Me in battle? I will trample it down and burn it up at once.

5 Unless it takes hold of My strength, in order to make shalom with Me; and he shall make shalom with Me.

6 He shall cause them that come of Yaakov to take root: Yisrael shall blossom and bud and fill the face of the olam with fruit.

7 He shall not strike Yisrael, as He smote others that smote Yisrael; or is Yisrael slain according to the slaughter of those that are slain by Him?

8 In measure, when You sent her away into exile: He will hold back His rough wind in the yom of the east wind.

9 By this therefore shall the iniquity of Yaakov be purged; and this is all the fruit of taking away his sin; when he makes all the stones of the altar as chalkstones that are beaten to dust, the Asherim and shemesh pillars shall rise no more.

10 Yet the defensed city shall be desolate and the home forsaken and left like a wilderness: there shall the calf feed and there shall he lie down and consume its branches.

11 When its twigs are withered, they shall be broken off: the women come and set them on fire: for it is a people of no binah: therefore He that made them will not have rachamim on them and He that formed them will show them no chen.

12 And it shall come to pass in that yom, that 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall stir up the people from the channel of the River Euphrates to the river of Mitzrayim and you shall be gathered one by one, O children of Yisrael.

13 And it shall come to pass in that yom, that the great shofar shall be blown and they shall come who were ready to perish in the land of Ashshur, and the outcasts in the land of Mitzrayim and shall worship 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 in the kadosh har at Yahrushalayim.

28 Woe to the keter of pride, to the drunkards of Efrayim, whose tifereth is a fading flower, which is on the head of the fertile valleys, of those that are overcome with wine!

2 See, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has a mighty and strong one, which as a storm of hail and a destroying storm, as a flood of mighty mayim overflowing, shall cast down to the earth with the hand.

3 The keter of pride, the drunkards of Efrayim, shall be trampled under feet:

4 And the tifereth, which is on the head of the fertile valley, shall be a fading flower and as the bikkurim before the summer; which when he sees it, he eats it up while still in his hand.

5 In that yom shall 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot be for a keter of tifereth and for a diadem of tifereth, to the remnant of His people,

6 And for a Ruach of mishpat to him that desires mishpat, and for strength to them that turn away the battle at the gate.

7 But they also have gone astray through wine and through strong drink are away from the emet derech; the kohen and the navi have gone astray through strong drink, they are swallowed up by wine, they are away from the emet derech through strong drink; they go astray in vision, they stumble in mishpatim.

8 For all their tables are full of vomit and filthiness, so that there is no clean place.

9 To whom shall He teach da’at? And to whom shall He make to understand doctrine? Those that are weaned from the milk and drawn away from the breasts.

10 For precept must be laid upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little and there a little:

11 For with stammering lips and another tongue will He speak to this people of Efrayim.

12 To whom He said, This is the rest by which you may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not listen.

13 But The Word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 was given to them precept upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line; here a little and there a little; that they might go and fall backward and be broken and snared and taken.

14 Therefore hear The Word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, you scornful men, that rule this people who are in Yahrushalayim.

15 Because you have said, We have made a brit with death and with Sheol are we in agreement; so that when the overflowing beatings shall pass through, it shall not come to us: for we have made lies our refuge and under falsehood have we hidden ourselves.

16 Therefore this says The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, See, I lay in Tzion for a foundation a Stone, a tried Stone, a precious Rosh Pina, a sure foundation: he that believes in Him shall not be disgraced or put to shame.

17 Mishpat also will I lay to the line and tzedakah to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies and the mayim shall overflow the hiding place.

18 And your brit with death shall be annulled and your agreement with Sheol shall not stand; when the overflowing beating shall pass through, then you shall be trampled down by it.

19 From the time that it goes forth it shall take hold of you: for boker by boker and, by yom and by lyla: it shall cause only distress to even understand the report.

20 For the bed is shorter than that on which a man can stretch himself on it: and the covers too narrow to wrap himself in it.

21 For 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall rise up as in Har Peratzim, He shall be angry as in the Valley of Giveon, that He may do His work, His strange work; and bring to pass His acts, His strange acts.

22 Now therefore be not mockers, lest your chains be made stronger: for I have heard from The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot a consumption determined upon the whole earth.

23 Give me your ear and listen to my voice; and listen to my speech.

24 Does the plowman plow all yom to sow? Does he keep turning his soil and breaking the clods?

25 When he has leveled the surface, does he not scatter the dill and sow the cummin? Does he not put wheat in rows and the barley where it belongs and plant the buckwheat around the edges?

26 For his Ahlohim does instruct him to use discretion and does teach him.

27 For the dill is not threshed with a threshing instrument, neither is a cartwheel turned on top of the cummin; but the dills are beaten out with a staff and the cummin with a rod.

28 Lechem grain is crushed; so one does not thresh it le-olam-va-ed, nor break it with the wheel of his cart, nor crush it with his horsemen.

29 Even this comes from 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot, who is wonderful in His counsel and excellent in His chochmah.

29 Woe to Ariel, to Ariel, the city where Dawid dwelt! Year to year; let moadeem come around.

2 Yet I will distress Ariel and there shall be heaviness and sorrow: and it shall be to Me as it is to Ariel.

3 And I will camp against you all around and will lay siege against you with siege-mounds and I will raise forts against you.

4 And you shall be brought down and shall speak out of the ground and your speech shall be low from the dust and your voice shall be, like a medium’s, out of the ground and your speech shall whisper out of the dust.

5 Moreover the multitude of your foreigners shall be like small dust and the multitude of the ruthless ones shall be as chaff that passes away: it shall be in an instant suddenly.

6 You shall be visited by 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot with thunder and with earthquake and great noise, with wind and storm and the flame of devouring fire.

7 And the multitude of all the goyim that fight against Ariel, even all that fight against her and her stronghold and all that distress her, shall be as a dream of a lyla vision.

8 It shall even be as when a hungry man dreams and, see, he eats; but he awakes and his being is empty: or as when a thirsty man dreams and, see, he drinks; but he awakes and, see, he is faint and his being has hunger: so shall the multitude of all the goyim be, that fight against Har Tzion.

9 Pause and wonder; they cry out for trouble: they are drunk, but not with wine; they stagger, but not because of strong drink.

10 For 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has poured out upon you the ruach of deep sleep and has closed your eyes: the neviim and your rulers, the seers also has He blinded.

11 And the vision of all has become to you as the words of a scroll that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, please: and he says, I cannot; for it is sealed:

12 And the scroll is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, please: and he says, I am not learned.

13 Therefore 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 says, Because this people draws near to Me with their mouths and with their lips they do kavod Me, but have removed their levavot far from Me and their fear of Me is taught by the commands of men:

14 Therefore, see, I will proceed to do a marvelous work among this people, even a marvelous work and a wonder: for the chochmah of their wise men shall perish and the binah of their clever men shall be hidden.

15 Woe to them that seek deep places to hide their counsel far from 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and their works are in the dark and they say, Who sees us? And who knows us?

16 That is perverted! Should the Potter be counted as the clay? Should the created say to The Creator, He made me not! Or, shall the thing formed say of Him that formed it; He has no binah?

17 Is it not yet a very little while and Levanon shall be turned into a fruitful field and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest?

18 And in that yom shall the deaf hear the words of the scroll and the eyes of the blind shall see out of gloom, and out of darkness.

19 The meek also shall increase their simcha in 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and the poor among men shall simcha in the Kadosh-One of Yisrael.

20 For the ruthless one is brought to nothing and the scorner is consumed and all that desire iniquity are cut off:

21 That make men to sin by their words and lay a trap for him that rebukes evil in the gate and turns aside the tzadik with empty reasoning.

22 Therefore this says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, who redeemed Avraham, concerning Beit Yaakov, Yaakov shall no longer be ashamed and neither shall his face now grow pale.

23 But when he sees his children, the work of My hands, in the midst of him, they shall set apart My Name and set apart the Kadosh-One of Yaakov and shall fear the Ahlohim of Yisrael.

24 They also that had gone astray in ruach, shall come to binah and they that grumbled shall learn Torah.

30 Woe to the rebellious children, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, that take counsel, but not from Me; and that devise plans, but not from My Ruach, that they may add sin to sin:

2 Who get set to go down into Mitzrayim and have not asked at My mouth; to strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh and to trust in the shadow of Mitzrayim!

3 Therefore shall the strength of Pharaoh be your shame and the trust in the shadow of Mitzrayim your confusion.

4 For his rulers were at Tzoan and his ambassadors came to Hanes.

5 They go to a people that could not profit them, nor be a help nor a profit to them, but rather a shame and also a reproach.

6 The burden of the beasts of the south: into the land of trouble and anguish, from where comes the young and old lion, the viper and fiery flying serpent, they will carry their riches upon the shoulders of young donkeys and their treasures upon the humps of camels, to a people that shall not profit them.

7 For the Mitzrim shall help in vain and to no avail: therefore have I called her, Rahav-Hem-Sheveth Arrogance Doing Nothing.

8 Now go, write it before them on a tablet and note it in a scroll, that it may be for the time to come le-olam-va-ed:

9 That this is a rebellious people, lying children that will not listen to the Torah of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄:

10 Who say to the seers, See not; and to the neviim, Prophesy not to us right things, speak to us smooth nice things, prophesy deceits:

11 Get out of His derech, turn aside out of the derech and cause the Kadosh-One of Yisrael to leave us alone.

12 Therefore this says the Kadosh-One of Yisrael, Because you despise this Word and trust in oppression and perverseness and stay in that:

13 Therefore this iniquity shall be to you as a breach ready to fall, growing in a high wall, whose breaking comes suddenly at an instant.

14 And He shall break it as the breaking of the potter’s vessel that is broken in pieces; He shall not spare: so that there shall not be found any among the fragments to use to take fire from the fireplace, or to take mayim out of the cistern.

15 For this says The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, the Kadosh-One of Yisrael; In returning and rest shall you be saved; in quietness and in trust shall be your strength: but you would not.

16 But you said, No; for we will flee upon horses; therefore shall you flee: and, We will ride upon the swift; therefore they that shall pursue you are swift.

17 One thousand shall flee at the rebuke of one; at the rebuke of five shall you flee: until you are left as a beacon upon the top of a har and as a banner on a hill.

18 And therefore will 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 wait, that He may extend rachamim to you and therefore will He be exalted, so that He may have rachamim upon you: for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is an Ahlohim of mishpat: blessed are all they that wait for Him.

19 For the people shall live in Tzion at Yahrushalayim: you shall weep no more: He will have great rachamim towards you at the voice of your cry; when He shall hear, He will answer you.

20 And though 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 gave you the lechem of adversity and the mayim of affliction, yet your teachers shall not be removed into a corner anymore, but your eyes shall see your teachers:

21 And your ears shall hear a Word behind you, saying, This is the derech, have your derech in this Derech , when you turn to the right hand and when you turn to the left.

22 You shall defile also the covering of your graven images of silver and the ornament of your molded images of gold: you shall cast them away as a menstrual cloth; you shall say to it, Get out!

23 Then shall He give the rain for your zera, that you shall sow the ground; and lechem as the increase of the earth and it shall be fat and filling: in that yom shall your cattle feed in large pastures.

24 The oxen and the young donkeys that work the ground, shall eat clean tasty mixtures, that has been winnowed with the shovel and with the fan.

25 And there shall be upon every high har and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of mayim in the yom of the great slaughter, when the towers fall.

26 Moreover the ohr of the yarayach shall be as the ohr of the shemesh and the ohr of the shemesh shall be magnified sevenfold, as the ohr of seven yamim, in the yom that 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 binds up the breach of His people and heals their wounds from His blows.

27 See, the Name of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 comes from far, burning with His anger and the burden of it is heavy: His lips are full of displeasure and His tongue as a devouring fire:

28 And His Ruach, as an overflowing river, shall reach to the midst of the neck, to sift the goyim with the sieve of falsehood: and there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the goyim, causing them to go astray.

29 You shall have a shir, in the lyla as when a kadosh moed is kept; and simcha of lev, as when one goes with a flute to come up to the har of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, to the Mighty One of Yisrael.

30 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall cause His voice of tifereth to be heard and shall show the coming down of His Arm, with the displeasure of His anger and with the flame of a devouring fire, with scattering and storm and hailstones.

31 By the voice of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall Ashshur be beaten down, who smote Yisrael with a rod.

32 And in every place where the ordained staff shall pass, which 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall lay upon him, it shall be with tambourines and harps: in fierce battle will He fight against them.

33 For Tophet is ordained of old; yes, for the melech it is prepared; He has made it deep and large: its fire pit with much wood; The Ruach of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, like a river of brimstone, will burn it.

31 Woe to them that go down to Mitzrayim for help; and rely on horses and trust in mirkavot because they are many; and in horsemen because they are very strong; but they look not to the Kadosh-One of Yisrael, neither do they seek 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 !

2 Yet He also is wise and will bring evil and will not take back His Words: but will arise against the bayit of the evildoers and against the helpers of those that work iniquity.

3 Now the Mitzrim are men and not El; and their horses are flesh and not The Ruach Hakodesh. When 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall stretch out His hand, both he that helps shall fall and he that is being helped shall fall down and they fall together.

4 For this has 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 spoken to me, Like as the lion and the young lion roaring on its prey, when a multitude of shepherds is called forth against him, he will not be afraid of their voice, nor humble himself for the noise of them: so shall 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot come down to fight for Har Tzion and for its hill.

5 As birds flying, so will 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot defend Yahrushalayim; defending and delivering it; and passing over and preserving it.

6 Now make teshuvah to Him, from whom the children of Yisrael have deeply fallen away.

7 For in that yom every man shall cast away his idols of silver and his idols of gold, which your own hands have made for yourselves to sin.

8 Then shall Ashshur fall with the sword, not of a mighty man; and the sword, not from mankind, but he shall flee from the sword, and his young men shall be put to forced labor.

9 And he shall pass over to his stronghold for fear and his rulers shall be afraid of the Banner, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, whose fire is in Tzion and whose furnace is in Yahrushalayim.

32 See, a Melech shall reign in tzedakah, and rulers shall rule in mishpat.

2 And each man shall be as a hiding place from the wind and a shelter from the storm; as rivers of mayim in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land.

3 And the eyes of them that see shall not be dim and the ears of them that will hear shall hear.

4 The lev also of the quick to talk shall understand da’at and the tongue of the stutterers shall be ready to speak plainly.

5 The fool shall be no more called noble, nor the scoundrel said to be respectable.

6 For the foolish person will speak folly and his lev will work iniquity, to practice hypocrisy and to utter error against 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, to make empty the being of the hungry and to cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.

7 The instruments also of the scoundrel are evil: he plans wicked plans to destroy the poor with lying words, even when the needy asks for mishpat.

8 But the generous plans generous things; and by generous things shall he stand.

9 Rise up, you women that are at ease; listen to My voice, you carefree daughters; listen to My speech.

10 Many yamim and years shall you be troubled, you carefree women: for the grape harvest shall fail, the gathering shall not come.

11 Tremble, you women that are at ease; be troubled, you carefree ones: strip yourself and make yourselves bare and put on sackcloth upon your loins.

12 They shall lament upon their breasts, for the pleasant fields, for the fruitful vine.

13 Upon the land of My people shall come up thorns and weeds; yes, upon all the houses of simcha in the joyous city:

14 Because the palaces shall be forsaken; the crowded city deserted; the hills and watchtowers shall serve as caves le-olam-va-ed, a simcha of wild donkeys, a pasture of flocks will remain;

15 Until The Ruach is poured upon us from on high and the wilderness is a fruitful field and the fruitful field is counted as a forest.

16 Then mishpat shall live in the wilderness and tzedakah remain in the fruitful field.

17 And the work of tzedakah shall be shalom; and the effect of tzedakah rest and trust le-olam-va-ed.

18 And My people shall live in a homeland of shalom and in secure dwellings and in quiet resting places;

19 Even when it shall hail, coming down on the forest; and the wood shall be laid low in humiliation.

20 Blessed are you that sow beside all kinds of mayim that send forth the feet of the ox and the donkey.

33 Woe to you that plunders and you were not plundered; and deals treacherously and they dealt not treacherously with you! When you shall cease to plunder, you shall be plundered; and when you shall make an end to dealing treacherously, they shall deal treacherously with you.

2 O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, show us chen; we have waited for You: be our Arm every boker, our Yahusha also in the time of trouble.

3 At the noise of rumbling the people fled; when You lift Yourself up the goyim were scattered.

4 And your plunder shall be gathered like the gathering of the caterpillar: as the running around of locusts shall He run upon them.

5 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is exalted; for He dwells on high: He has filled Tzion with mishpat and tzedakah.

6 And chochmah and da’at shall be the stability of your times and the strength of Yahusha : and the fear of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 that is His treasure.

7 See, their brave ones shall cry outside: the ambassadors of shalom shall weep bitterly.

8 The highways lie deserted, the wayfaring man ceases: He has broken the brit, he has despised the cities, he regards no man.

9 The earth mourns and languishes: Levanon is ashamed and cut down: Sharon is like a wilderness; and Bashan and Carmel shake off their fruits.

10 Now will I rise, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄; now will I be exalted; now will I lift up Myself.

11 You shall conceive chaff, you shall bring forth stubble: your Ruach, as fire, shall devour you.

12 And the people shall be as the burnings of lime: as thorns cut up shall they be burned in the fire.

13 Hear, you that are far off, what I have done; and, you that are near, acknowledge My might.

14 The sinners in Tzion are afraid; trembling has seized the hypocrites. Who among us shall live with the devouring fire? Who among us shall live with everlasting burnings?

15 He that has their walk righteously and speaks uprightly; he that despises the gain of oppression, that holds back his hands from holding bribes, that stops his ears from hearing bloodshed and shuts his eyes from seeing evil;

16 He shall live on high: his place of defense shall be the strongholds of rocks: lechem shall be given him; his mayim shall be sure.

17 Your eyes shall see The Melech in His tifereth: they shall see the land that is very far off.

18 Your lev shall ponder fear. Where is the Sopher? Where is the weigher? Where is he that counts the towers?

19 You shall not see a fierce people, a people of an obscure language that you cannot perceive; with a stammering tongue that you cannot understand.

20 Look upon Tzion, the city of our moadeem: Your eyes shall see Yahrushalayim a quiet home, a sukkah that shall not be taken down; not one of its pegs shall ever be removed, neither shall any of its cords be broken.

21 But there Majestic 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 will be to us a place of broad rivers and streams; in which shall go no boat with oars, neither shall large ships pass by.

22 For 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is our Shofet, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is our Torah-Giver, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is our Melech; He will save us.

23 Your ropes are loosed; they could not well strengthen their mast, they could not spread the sail: then is the prey of a great plunder divided; the lame take the prey.

24 And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that live in it shall be forgiven their iniquity.

34 Come near, you goyim, to hear; and listen, you people: let the earth hear and all that is in it; the olam and all things that come forth from it.

2 For the displeasure of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is upon all goyim and His fury upon all their armies: He shall utterly destroy them, He shall deliver them to the slaughter.

3 Their slain also shall be cast out and their stink shall come up out of their corpses and the mountains shall be melted with their dahm.

4 And all the host of the shamayim shall be dissolved and the shamayim shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falls off from the vine and as a falling fig from the fig eytz.

5 For My sword shall be sharpened in the shamayim: see, it shall come down upon the Edomites and upon the people of My curse, condemned in mishpat.

6 The sword of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is filled with dahm, it shall overflow with fatness and with the dahm of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams: for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has a sacrifice in Bozrah and a great slaughter in the land of Edom.

7 And the rhinocerus shall come down with them and the young bulls with the bulls; and their land shall be soaked with dahm and their dust made fat with fatness.

8 For it is the Yom of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 ‘s vengeance and the year of paybacks for the controversy of Tzion.

9 And its streams shall be turned into tar and its dust into brimstone and its land shall become burning tar.

10 It shall not be quenched lyla nor yom; the smoke of it shall go up le-olam-va-ed: from generation to generation it shall lie in ruin; none shall pass through it le-olam-va-ed.

11 But the pelican and the porcupine shall possess it; the owl also and the raven shall live in it: and He shall stretch out upon it the measuring line of confusion and the stones of emptiness.

12 They shall call its nobles to the malchut, but none shall be there and all her rulers shall become nothing.

13 And thorns shall come up in her palaces, nettles and brambles in its strongholds: and it shall be a home of jackals and a courtyard for ostriches.

14 The wild beasts of the desert shall also meet in it with the wild beasts of the island and the billy-goats shall call to each other; the lyla creature also shall rest there and find for herself a place of rest.

15 There shall the hoot owl make her nest and lay and hatch and gather under her shadow: there shall the vultures also be gathered, every one with its mate.

16 Seek for the scroll of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and read it: not one of these shall fail, none shall be without a mate: for my mouth He has commanded and His Ruach shall gather them.

17 And He has cast the lot for them and His hand has divided it to them by measuring line: they shall possess it le-olam-va-ed, from generation to generation shall they live in it.

35 The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall simcha and blossom as the rose.

2 It shall blossom abundantly and gilah even with simcha and singing: the tifereth of Levanon shall be given to it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the tifereth of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and the excellency of our Ahlohim.

3 Strengthen the weak hands and make firm the feeble knees.

4 Say to them that are of a fearful lev, Be strong and fear not: see, your Ahlohim will come with vengeance, even Ahlohim with a recompense; He will come and save you.

5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened and the ears of the deaf shall be opened.

6 Then shall the lame man leap as a hart and the tongue of the dumb shir: for in the wilderness shall mayim break out and streams in the desert.

7 And the parched ground shall become a pool and the thirsty land springs of mayim: in the home of jackals, where each one lay, there shall be grass with reeds and rushes.

8 And a highway shall be there and a Derech and it shall be called The Derech of set apartness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those who have their walk in The Derech: even wayward fools shall not go astray in it.

9 No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up on it, they shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall have their walk there:

10 And the ransomed of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall return and come to Tzion with shirim and everlasting simcha upon their heads: they shall obtain simcha upon simcha and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

36 Now it came to pass in the fourteenth year of melech Hizqiyahu, that Sancheriv melech of Ashshur came up against all the defended cities of Yahudah and took them.

2 And the melech of Ashshur sent Rav-Shakeh from Lachish to Yahrushalayim to melech Hizqiyahu with a great army. And he stood by the channel of the upper pool in the highway of the Launderers’ Field.

3 Then came forth to him Elyaquim, Hilqiyah’s son, who was steward of the household and Shevna the Sopher and Yoah, Asaph’s son, the recorder.

4 And Rav-Shakeh said to them, Say now to Hizqiyahu, This says the great melech, the melech of Ashshur, What trust is this in which you trust?

5 I say, you speak of having counsel and strength for war, but they are but vain words: now upon whom do you trust, that you have rebelled against me?

6 See, you trust in the staff of this broken reed, on Mitzrayim; which if a man leans on, it will go into his hand and pierce it: so is Pharaoh melech of Mitzrayim to all that trust in him.

7 But if you say to me, We trust in 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 our Ahlohim: is it not He, whose high places and whose altars Hizqiyahu has taken away and said to Yahudah and to Yahrushalayim, You shall worship before this altar?

8 Now therefore give a pledge, I ask you, to my master the melech of Ashshur and I will give you two thousand horses, if you are able on your part to set riders upon them.

9 How then can you refuse one officer of the least of my master’s avadim and put your trust in Mitzrayim for mirkavot and for horsemen?

10 And am I now come up without 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 against this land to destroy it? 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 said to me, Go up against this land and destroy it.

11 Then said Elyaquim and Shevna and Yoah to Rav-Shakeh, Please speak, to your avadim in the Aramaic language; for we understand it: and speak not to us in the language of Yahudah, in the ears of the people that are on the wall.

12 But Rav-Shakeh said, Has my master sent me to your master and to you to speak these words? Has he not sent me to the men that sit upon the wall, that they may eat their own dung and drink their own urine with you?

13 Then Rav-Shakeh stood and cried with a loud voice in Ivrit; the language of Yahudah and said, Shema to the words of the great melech, the melech of Ashshur.

14 This says the melech, Let not Hizqiyahu deceive you: for he shall not be able to deliver you.

15 Neither let Hizqiyahu make you trust in 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, saying,𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 will surely deliver us: so that this city shall not be delivered into the hand of the melech of Ashshur.

16 Shema not to Hizqiyahu: for this says the melech of Ashshur, Make an agreement with me by a present and come out to me: and eat every one of his vine and every one of his fig eytz and drink every one the mayim of his own cistern;

17 Until I come and take you away to a land like your own land, a land of grain and wine, a land of lechem and vineyards.

18 Beware lest Hizqiyahu persuade you, saying, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 will deliver us. Has any of the ahlahim of the goyim delivered his land out of the hand of the melech of Ashshur?

19 Where are the ahlahim of Hamath and Arphad? Where are the ahlahim of Sefarvaim? Have they delivered Shomron out of my hand?

20 Who are they among all the ahlahim of these lands, that have delivered their land out of my hand, that 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 should deliver Yahrushalayim out of my hand?

21 But they held their shalom and did not answer him even one word: for the melech’s commandment said, Do not answer him.

22 Then came Elyaquim, the son of Hilkiyahu, that was over the household and Shevna the Sopher and Yoah, the son of Asaph, the recorder, to Hizqiyahu with their clothes torn and told him all the words of Rav-Shakeh.

37 And it came to pass, when melech Hizqiyahu heard it, that he tore his clothes and covered himself with sackcloth and went into the Bayit of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

2 And he sent Elyaquim, who was over the household and Shevna the Sopher and the zechanim of the kohanim covered with sackcloth, to Yeshayahu the navi the son of Amotz.

3 And they said to him, This says Hizqiyahu, This yom is a yom of trouble and of rebuke and of scorn: for the children have come to the birth and there is no strength to bring forth.

4 It may be 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Ahlohim will hear the words of Rav-Shakeh, whom the melech of Ashshur his master has sent to reproach the living Ahlohim and will reprove the words which 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Ahlohim has heard: therefore lift up your tefillah for the remnant that is left.

5 So the avadim of melech Hizqiyahu came to Yeshayahu.

6 And Yeshayahu said to them, This shall you say to your master, This says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, Be not afraid of the words that you have heard, by which the avadim of the melech of Ashshur have blasphemed Me.

7 See, I will send a blast upon him and he shall hear a rumor and return to his own land; and I will cause him to fall by the sword in his own land.

8 So Rav-Shakeh returned and found the melech of Ashshur fighting against Livnah: for he had heard that he had departed from Lachish.

9 And he heard it said concerning Tirhachah melech of Ethiopia, He has come forth to make war with you. And when he heard it, he sent messengers to Hizqiyahu, saying,

10 This shall you say to Hizqiyahu melech of Yahudah, saying, Let not your Ahlohim, in whom you trust, deceive you, saying, Yahrushalayim shall not be given into the hand of the melech of Ashshur.

11 See, you have heard what the melechim of Ashshur have done to all lands by destroying them utterly; and shall you be delivered?

12 Have the ahlahim of the goyim delivered them that my ahvot have destroyed, like Gozan and Charan and Rezeph and the children of Ayden who were in Telassar?

13 Where is the melech of Hamath and the melech of Arphad and the melech of the city of Sefarvaim, Hena and Ivah?

14 Hizqiyahu received the letter from the hands of the messengers and read it: and Hizqiyahu went up to the Bayit of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and spread it before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

15 And Hizqiyahu made tefillah to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, saying,

16 O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot, Ahlohim of Yisrael, You who live between the cheruvim, You are the Ahlohim, even You alone, of all the malchutim of the earth: You alone have made the shamayim and the earth.

17 Incline Your ear, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and hear; open Your eyes, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and see: and listen to all the words of Sancheriv, who has been sent to reproach the living Ahlohim.

18 Of an emet, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, the melechim of Ashshur have laid waste all the goyim and their countries,

19 And have cast their ahlahim into the fire: for they were not ahlahim, but the work of men’s hands, wood and stone: therefore they have destroyed them.

20 Now therefore, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 our Ahlohim, save us from his hand, that all the malchutim of the earth may know that You are 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, even You alone.

21 Then Yeshayahu the son of Amotz sent to Hizqiyahu, saying, This says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Ahlohim of Yisrael, Because you have made tefillah to Me against Sancheriv melech of Ashshur:

22 This is the word that 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has spoken concerning him; The virgin, the daughter of Tzion, has despised you and laughed you to scorn; the daughter of Yahrushalayim has shaken her head at you.

23 Whom have you reproached and blasphemed? And against whom have you exalted your voice and lifted up your eyes on high? Even against the Kadosh-One of Yisrael.

24 By your avadim have you reproached 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and have said, By the multitude of my mirkavot I am come up to the height of the mountains, to the sides of Levanon; and I will cut down the tall cedars of it and the choice cypress eytzim of it: and I will enter into the height of its border and the forest of its fruitful field.

25 I have dug and drunk mayim; and with the sole of my feet have I dried up all the rivers of the besieged places.

26 Have you not heard long ago, how I have done it; and from ancient times, that I have formed it? Now have I brought it to pass, that you should be allowed to lay waste defended cities into ruinous heaps.

27 Therefore their inhabitants were of small power, they were dismayed and embarrassed: they were as the grass of the field and as the green herb, as the grass on the housetops and as grain blasted before it is grown up.

28 But I know your sitting down and your going out and your coming in and your rage against Me.

29 Because your rage against Me and your pride, has come up into My ears, therefore will I put My hook in your nose and My bridle in your lips and I will turn you back by the same derech by which you came.

30 And this shall be an ot to you, You shall eat this year such as grows by itself; and the second year that which springs of the same: and in the third year sow and reap and plant vineyards and eat the fruit of it.

31 And the remnant that is escaped of Beit Yahudah shall again take root downward, and bear fruit upward:

32 For out of Yahrushalayim shall go forth a remnant and they that escape out of Har Tzion: the zeal of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot shall do this.

33 Therefore this says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 concerning the melech of Ashshur, He shall not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow there nor come before it with shields, nor build a siege mound against it.

34 By the derech that he came, by the same road shall he return and shall not come into this city, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

35 For I will defend this city to save it for My own sake and for My eved Dawid’s sake.

36 Then The Heavenly Malach of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 went forth and smote the camp of the Ashurim one hundred eighty five thousand: and when they arose early in the boker, see, they were all dead corpses.

37 So Sancheriv melech of Ashshur departed and went and returned and dwelt at Ninveh.

38 And it came to pass, as he was worshipping in the bayit of Nisroch his ahlahim, that Adram-Melech and Sharetzer his sons smote him with the sword; and they escaped into the land of Armenia: and Esar-Haddon his son reigned in his place.

38 In those yamim Hizqiyahu was sick and near death. And Yeshayahu the navi the son of Amotz came to him and said to him, This says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, Set your bayit in order: for you shall die and not live.

2 Then Hizqiyahu turned his face toward the wall and made tefillah to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄,

3 And said, Remember now, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, I beg You, how I have had my halacha before You in emet and with a perfect lev and have done that which is tov in Your sight. And Hizqiyahu wept heavily.

4 Then came The Word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 to Yeshayahu, saying,

5 Go and tell Hizqiyahu, This says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, the Ahlohim of Dawid your abba, I have heard your tefillah, I have seen your tears: see, I will add to your yamim fifteen years.

6 And I will deliver you and this city out of the hand of the melech of Ashshur: and I will defend this city.

7 And this shall be an ot to you from 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, that 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 will do this thing that He has spoken;

8 See, I will bring again the shadow of the degrees, which is gone down on the sundial of Achaz, ten degrees backward. So the shemesh returned ten degrees on the dial, by the same degrees that it had gone down.

9 This then is the writing of Hizqiyahu melech of Yahudah, when he had been sick and had later recovered from his sickness:

10 I said in the cutting off of my yamim, I shall go to the gates of Sheol: I am deprived of the residue of my years.

11 I said, I shall not see YAH,𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, in the land of the living: I shall see man no more with the inhabitants of the olam.

12 My chayim is departed and is taken from me as a shepherd’s tent: My chayim was shrunk like a weaver’s web: He will cut me off with sickness: from one yom to the next lyla You make an end of me.

13 I soothed myself until boker, but as a lion, so will He break all my bones: from one yom to the next lyla will You make an end of me.

14 Like a swallow, so did I chatter: I did mourn as a yonah: my eyes became weary with looking upward: O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, I am oppressed; take hold of this for me!

15 What shall I say? He has both spoken to me and Himself has done it: I shall go humbly all my years in the bitterness of my being.

16 O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, by these things men live and in all these things is the chayim of my ruach: so restore me and make me live.

17 See, for shalom I had great bitterness: but You have in Your ahava for my being delivered it from the pit of corruption: for You have cast all my sins behind Your back.

18 For Sheol cannot hallel You, death cannot celebrate You: they that go down into the pit cannot tikvah for Your emet.

19 The living, yes, the living, shall hallel You, even as I do this yom: The Abba to their children shall make known Your emet.

20 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 came to save me: therefore we will shir my shirim with the stringed instruments all the yamim of our chayim in the Bayit of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

21 For Yeshayahu had said, Let them take a fig-plaster and apply it upon the boil and he shall recover:

22 Because Hizqiyahu asked, What is the ot that I shall be able to go up to the Bayit of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 ?

39 At that time Merodach-Baladan, the son of Baladan, melech of Bavel, sent letters and a present to Hizqiyahu: for he had heard that he had been sick and had recovered.

2 And Hizqiyahu was glad because of them and in turn he showed them the bayit of his precious things, the silver and the gold and the spices and the precious ointment and all the bayit of his armor and all that was found in his treasures: there was nothing in his bayit, nor in all his dominion, that Hizqiyahu did not show them.

3 Then came Yeshayahu the navi to melech Hizqiyahu and said to him, What did those men say? And from where did they come? And Hizqiyahu said, They have come from a far country to me, even from Bavel.

4 Then he said, What have they seen in your bayit? And Hizqiyahu answered, All that is in my bayit have they seen: there is nothing among my treasures that I have not showed them.

5 Then said Yeshayahu to Hizqiyahu, Hear The Word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot:

6 See, the yamim come, that all that is in your bayit and that which your ahvot have laid up in store until this yom, shall be carried to Bavel: nothing shall be left, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

7 And of your sons that shall come from you, whom you shall bring forth, shall they take away; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the melech of Bavel.

8 Then said Hizqiyahu to Yeshayahu, Tov is The Word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 which you have spoken. He said moreover, For there shall be shalom and emet in my yamim.

40 Nachamu, Nachamu Ami-My people, says your Ahlohim.

2 Speak comfortably to Yahrushalayim and declare to her, that her warfare is finished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she has received from 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 ‘s hand double for all her sins.

3 The voice of him that cries in the wilderness, Prepare the Derech of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, make straight in the desert a derech for our Ahlohim.

4 Every valley shall be exalted and every har and hill shall be made low: and the crooked places shall be made straight and the rough places plain:

5 And the kavod of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has spoken it.

6 The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass and all the tov from it is as the flower of the field:

7 The grass withers, the flower fades: when The Ruach Hakodesh of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 blows upon it: surely the people are like grass.

8 The grass withers, the flower fades: but The Word of our Ahlohim shall abide and stand le-olam-va-ed.

9 O Tzion, that brings tov tidings, get up into the high har; O Yahrushalayim, that brings tov tidings, lift up your voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say to the cities of Yahudah, See your Ahlohim !

10 See, The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 will come with a strong hand, and His Arm shall rule for Him: see, His reward is with Him, and His work before Him.

11 He shall feed His flock like a Shepherd: He shall gather the lambs with His Arm, and carry them in His bosom and shall gently lead those that are with young.

12 Who has measured the mayim in the hollow of His hand and meted out the shamayim with the span and gathered the dust of the earth in a measure and weighed the mountains on scales and the hills in a balance?

13 Who has directed The Ruach of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 or being His counselor has taught Him?

14 With whom did He take counsel and who instructed Him and taught Him in the derech of mishpat and taught Him da’at and showed Him the derech of binah?

15 See, the goyim are as a drop in a bucket and are counted as the small dust on the balance: see, He lifts up the coastlands as fine dust.

16 And Levanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts of it sufficient for a burnt offering.

17 All goyim before Him are as nothing; and they are counted by Him as less than nothing and emptiness.

18 To whom then will you liken El? Or, what likeness will you compare Him to?

19 The workman melts a graven image and the goldsmith covers it with gold and casts silver chains.

20 He that is so poor that he has no gold idol chooses an eytz that will not rot; he seeks for himself a skilled workman to prepare a graven image that shall not move.

21 Have you not known? Have you not heard? Has it not been told to you from the beginning? Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth?

22 It is He that sits upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants of it are as a grasshopper; that stretches out the shamayim as a curtain and spreads them out as a tent to live in:

23 That brings rulers to nothing; and makes the shophtim of the earth as vanity.

24 Yes, they shall not be planted; yes, they shall not be sown: yes, their stock shall not take root in the earth: and He shall also blow upon them and they shall wither and the whirlwind shall take them away as stubble.

25 To whom then will you liken Me, or to whom shall I be equal? Says the Kadosh-One.

26 Lift up your eyes on high and see who has created these things, that brings out their host by number: He calls them all by names by the greatness of His might, for He is strong in Power; and not one fails.

27 Why do you say, O Yaakov and speak, O Yisrael, My derech is hidden from 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and mishpat is not issued from My Ahlohim?

28 Have you not known? Have you not heard, that the Everlasting Ahlohim, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, The Creator of the ends of the earth, faints not, neither is tired? There is no searching of His binah.

29 He gives Power to the weary; and to them that have no might He increases strength.

30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary and the young men shall stumble and fall:

31 But they that wait upon 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall renew their strength; they shall har up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint.

41 Keep silent before Me, you coastlands; and let the people renew their strength: let them come near; then let them speak: let us come together for mishpat.

2 Who raised up the tzadik man from the east, called him to His foot, gave the goyim before Him and made Him rule over melechim? He gave them as the dust for His sword and as driven stubble for His bow.

3 He pursued them and passed safely; even by the derech that He had not gone with His feet.

4 Who has worked and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, the first and the last; I AM He.

5 The coastlands saw it and feared; the ends of the earth were afraid, they drew near and came.

6 Each one helped his neighbor; and each one said to his brother, Be of tov courage.

7 So the craftsman encourages the goldsmith and he that smoothes with the hammer inspires him that strikes the anvil, saying, It is ready to be joined: and he fastens it with nails, that it should not be moved.

8 But you, Yisrael, are My eved, Yaakov whom I have chosen, the zera of Avraham My chaver.

9 You whom I have taken from the ends of the earth and called you from the farthest parts of it and said to you, You are My eved; I have chosen you and not cast you away.

10 Fear not; for I am with you: be not dismayed; for I AM your Ahlohim: I will strengthen you; yes, I will help you; yes, I will uphold you with the Right Hand of My tzedakah.

11 See, all they that were enraged against you shall be ashamed and embarrassed: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with you shall perish.

12 You shall seek them and shall not find them, even them that contended with you: they that war against you shall be as nothing and as a thing of nothing.

13 For I 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Ahlohim will hold your right hand, saying to you, Al-Tereh; I will help you.

14 Fear not, you worm Yaakov and you men of Yisrael; I will help you, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and Your Redeemer, the Kadosh-One of Yisrael.

15 See, I will make you a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: you shall thresh the mountains and beat them small and shall make the hills as chaff.

16 You shall fan them and the wind shall carry them away and the whirlwind shall scatter them: and you shall simcha in 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and shall tifereth in the Kadosh-One of Yisrael.

17 When the poor and needy seek mayim and there is none and their tongue fails for thirst, I 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 will listen to them, I the Ahlohim of Yisrael will not forsake them.

18 I will open rivers in high places and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of mayim and the dry land springs of mayim.

19 I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the acacia eytz and the myrtle and the oil eytz; I will set in the desert the cypress eytz and the pine and the box eytz together:

20 That they may see and know and consider and understand together, that the Hand of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has done this and the Kadosh-One of Yisrael has created it from nothing.

21 Produce your cause, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄; bring forth your strong reasons, says The Melech of Yaakov.

22 Let them bring them forth and show Us what shall happen: let them show the former things, what they were, that We may consider them and know the latter end of them; or declare to Us things yet to come.

23 Show the things that are to come from now on, that We may know that you are Ahlohim: yes, do tov, or do evil, that We may be amazed and see it together.

24 See, you are nothing and your work is nothing: an abomination is anyone that chooses you.

25 I have raised up one from the north and he shall come: from the rising of the shemesh shall he call upon My Name: and He shall come upon rulers as though mortar and as the potter tramples clay.

26 Who has declared from the beginning, that We may know? And ahead of time, that We may say, He is tzadik? Yes, there is none that declares the future, yes, there is none that proclaims it, yes, yet there is none that hears Your Words.

27 First He shall say to Tzion, here, see, now see then: I will give to Yahrushalayim One that brings tov tidings.

28 For I beheld and there was no man; even among them and there was no counselor, that, when I asked of them, could bring forth a defense.

29 See, they are all vanity; their works are nothing: their molded images are wind and confusion.

42 See My Eved, whom I uphold; My elect, in whom My being delights; I have put My Ruach upon Him: He shall bring forth mishpat to the goyim.

2 He shall not cry, nor lift up His voice, nor cause His voice to be heard in the street.

3 A bruised reed shall He not break and the smoking cotton shall He not quench: He shall bring forth mishpat in accordance with emet.

4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged, until He has set mishpat in the earth: and the coastlands shall wait for His Torah.

5 This says the El-𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, He that created the shamayim and stretches them out; He that spreads forth the earth and that which comes out of it; He that gives Ruach to the people upon it and ruach to them that walk in it:

6 I 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 have called You in tzedakah and will hold Your hand and will keep You and give You for a brit of the people, for an Ohr to the goyim;

7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison and them that sit in darkness out of the prison bayit.

8 I AM 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄: that is My Name: and My tifereth will I not give to another, neither My hallel to graven images.

9 See, the former things have come to pass and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.

10 Sing to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 a new shir, and His hallel from the ends of the earth, you that go down to the sea and all that is in it; the coastlands and the inhabitants of it.

11 Let the wilderness and the cities of it lift up their voice, the villages that Kedar does inhabit: let the inhabitants of the steep rocks shir; let them shout from the top of the mountains.

12 Let them give tifereth to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and declare His hallel in the coastlands.

13 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall go forth as a mighty Man, He shall stir up zeal like a Man of war: He shall cry, yes, roar; He shall prevail against His enemies.

14 I have held My shalom for a long while; I have been still and refrained Myself: now will I cry like 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 coastlands and I will dry up the pools.

16 And I will bring the blind by a derech that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness ohr before them and crooked things straight. These things will I do to them and not forsake them.

17 They shall make teshuvah and then they shall be greatly ashamed, that have trusted in graven images, that say to the molded images, You are our ahlahim.

18 Shema, you who are deaf and look, you who are blind, that you may see.

19 Who is blind, but My eved? Or, deaf, as My messenger that I sent? Who is as blind as he that is whole and blind as 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 ‘s eved?

20 Seeing many things, but you observe not; opening the ears, but he hears not.

21 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is well pleased for the sake of His tzedakah, He will magnify the Torah, and make it honorable.

22 But this is a people robbed and plundered; they are all of them snared in holes and they are hidden in prison houses: they are for a prey and no one delivers them; for a plunder and no one says, Restore!

23 Who among you will give ear to this? Who will listen and hear for the time to come?

24 Who gave Yaakov for a plunder and Yisrael to the robbers? Did not 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, He against whom we have sinned? For they would not have their derech in His derachot, neither were they obedient to His Torah.

25 Therefore He has poured upon Yaakov the fury of His anger and the strength of battle: and has set him on fire all around, yet he did not understand why; and it burned him, yet he did not take it to lev.

43 But now this says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 that created you, O Yaakov and He that formed you, O Yisrael, Fear not: for I have redeemed you, I have called you by your name; you are Mine.

2 When you pass through the mayim, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you: when you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon you.

3 For I AM 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Ahlohim, the Kadosh-One of Yisrael, your Savior: I gave Mitzrayim for your ransom, Ethiopia and Seva for you.

4 Since you were precious in My sight, you have been honorable and I have loved you: therefore will I give men for you and people for your chayim.

5 Fear not: for I AM with you: I will bring your zera from the east and gather you from the west;

6 I will say to the north, Give them up; and to the south, Keep them not back: bring My sons from far and My daughters from the ends of the earth;

7 Even each one that is called by My Name: for I have created him for My tifereth, I have formed him; yes, I have made him.

8 Bring forth the blind people that have eyes and the deaf that have ears.

9 Let all the goyim be gathered together, and let the people be assembled; who among them can declare this and show us former things? Let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified: or let them hear and say, It is emet.

10 You are My witnesses, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, even My Eved whom I have chosen: that you may know and believe Me and understand that I AM He: before Me there was no El formed, neither shall there be after Me.

11 I, even I, am 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄; and beside Me there is no Savior.

12 I have declared and have saved and I have showed, when there was no ger among you: therefore you are My witnesses, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, that I AM El.

13 Yes, before the yom was I AM He; and there is none that can deliver out of My hand: I will work, and who shall let it?

14 This says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, your Redeemer, the Kadosh-One of Yisrael; For Your sake I have sent to Bavel and have brought down all their nobles and the Chaldeans, whose cry is in their ships.

15 I AM 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, your Kadosh-One, The Creator of Yisrael, your Melech.

16 This says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, who makes a derech in the sea and a derech in the mighty mayim,

17 Who brings forth the mirkavah and horse, the army and the power; they shall lie down together, they shall not rise: they are extinct; they are quenched like the wicked.

18 Remember not the former things, neither consider the things of old.

19 See, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a derech in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.

20 The beast of the field shall kavod Me, the jackals and the owls: because I give mayim in the wilderness and rivers in the desert, to give drink to My people, My chosen.

21 This people have I formed for Myself; they shall show forth My hallel.

22 But you have not called upon Me, O Yaakov; but you have been weary of Me, O Yisrael.

23 You have not brought Me the small cattle of your burnt offerings; neither have you honored Me with your sacrifices. I have not caused you to serve with an offering, nor wearied you with incense.

24 You have bought Me no sweet cane with money, neither have you filled Me with the fat of your sacrifices: but you have served Me with your sins, you have wearied Me with your iniquities.

25 I, even I, am He that blots out your transgressions for My own sake and will not remember your sins.

26 Remember Me: let us reason together about mishpat: plead with Me, that you may be justified.

27 Your first abba has sinned, and your advocates have transgressed against Me.

28 Therefore your princes have profaned My Kadosh-Place and have given Yaakov to the curse and Yisrael to scorn.

44 Yet now shema, O Yaakov My eved; and Yisrael, whom I have chosen:

2 This says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 that made you and formed you from the womb, who will help you; Fear not, O Yaakov, My eved; and you, Yeshurun, whom I have chosen.

3 For I will pour mayim upon him that is thirsty and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour My Ruach upon your zera and My bracha upon your offspring:

4 And they shall spring up as among the grass, as willows by the mayim streams.

5 One shall say, I am 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 ‘s; and another shall call himself by the name of Yaakov; and another shall write with his hand, Unto 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and name himself by the name of Yisrael.

6 This says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 The Melech of Yisrael, and His Redeemer 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot; I AM the first and I AM the last; and beside Me there is no ahlahim.

7 And who is like Me, let him call and declare it and lay it before Me, since I appointed the ancient people? And the things that are coming and shall come, let them show these things to them.

8 Fear not, neither be afraid: have not I told you from that time and have declared it? You are even My witnesses. Is there any Ahloha beside Me? Yes, there is no Rock beside Me; I know not of anyone.

9 They that make a graven image, all of them are vanity; and their delights shall not profit; and they are their own witnesses; they see not, neither know anything; that they may be ashamed.

10 Who has formed an El, or cast a graven image that is profitable for nothing?

11 See, all his fellows shall be ashamed: and the workmen, they are but men: let them all be gathered together, let them stand up; yet they shall fear and they shall be ashamed together.

12 The craftsman with the tongs both works in the coals and fashions it with hammers and works it with the strength of his arms: yes, he is hungry and his strength fails: he drinks no mayim and is weak.

13 The carpenter stretches out his rule; he marks it out with a line; he fits it with planes and he marks it out with the compass and makes it after the figure of a man, according to the tifereth of a man; that it may remain in the bayit.

14 He cuts down cedars and takes the cypress and the oak, which he raised for himself among the eytzim of the forest: he plants a pine and the rain does nourish it.

15 Then shall it be for a man to burn: for he will take of it and warm himself; yes, he kindles it and bakes lechem; yes, he makes an El and worships it; he makes it a graven image and falls down before it.

16 He burns part of it in the fire; with part of it he eats flesh; he roasts roast and is satisfied: yes, he warms himself and says, Aha, I am warm, I have seen the fire:

17 And the residue of it he makes an El, even his graven image: he falls down to it and worships it and makes tefillah to it and says; Deliver me, for you are my El.

18 They have not known nor understood: for He has shut their eyes, that they cannot see; and their levavot, that they cannot understand.

19 And none considers in his lev, neither is there da’at nor binah to say, I have burned part of it in the fire; yes, also I have baked lechem upon the coals of it; I have roasted flesh and eaten it: and shall I make the residue of it into an abomination? Shall I fall down to the log of an eytz?

20 He feeds on ashes: a deceived lev has turned him aside, so that he cannot deliver his being, nor say, Is there not a lie in my right hand?

21 Remember these, O Yaakov and Yisrael; for you are My eved: I have formed you; you are My eved: O Yisrael, you shall not be forgotten by Me.

22 I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, your transgressions and, as a cloud, your sins: make teshuvah to Me; for I have redeemed you.

23 Sing, O shamayim; for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has done it: shout, you depths of the earth: break forth into singing, you mountains, O forest and every eytz in it: for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has redeemed Yaakov and lifted Himself up in Yisrael.

24 This says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, your Redeemer and He that formed you from the womb, I AM 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 that makes all things; that stretches forth the shamayim alone; that spreads abroad the earth by Myself;

25 That frustrates the signs of the liars and makes diviners crazy; that turns wise men backward and makes their da’at foolish;

26 That confirms the word of His eved and performs the counsel of His messengers; that says to Yahrushalayim, You shall be inhabited; and to the cities of Yahudah, You shall be rebuilt, and I will raise up the ruined places of it:

27 That says to the deep, Be dry and I will dry up your rivers:

28 That says of Koresh, He is My shepherd and shall perform all My pleasure: even saying to Yahrushalayim, You shall be rebuilt; and to the Hekal, your foundation shall be laid.

45 This says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 to His anointed, to Koresh, whose right hand I have grasped, to subdue goyim before him; and I will loose the loins of melechim, to open before him the double doors; so that the gates shall not be shut;

2 I will go before you and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass and cut down the bars of iron:

3 And I will give you the treasures of darkness and the hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I,𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, who call you by your name, I Am the Ahlohim of Yisrael.

4 For Yaakov My eved’s sake and Yisrael My elect, I have even called you by your name: I have surnamed you, though you have not known Me.

5 I AM 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and there is none else, there is no ahlahim beside Me: I dressed you, though you have not known Me:

6 That they may know from the rising of the shemesh and from the west, that there is none beside Me. I AM 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and there is none else.

7 I form the ohr and create darkness: I make shalom and create evil: I 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 do all these things.

8 Drop down, you shamayim, from above and let the skies pour down tzedakah: let the earth open and let them bring forth Yahusha and let tzedakah spring up together; I 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 have created it.

9 Woe to him that strives with His Makers! An earthen vessel that strives with Him who made it! Shall the clay say to Him that fashioned it, Why did you make it like this? Or, the handiwork saying to the Maker of it, He has no hands?

10 Woe to him that says to his abba, Why did you beget me? Or, to an eema, Why have you conceived me?

11 This says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, the Kadosh-One of Yisrael and His Maker, Ask Me of things to come concerning My sons and concerning the work of My hands command Me.

12 I have made the earth and created man upon it: I, even My hands, have stretched out the shamayim and their entire host, have I commanded.

13 I have raised Him up in tzedakah and I will direct all His halachot: He shall rebuild My city and He shall let My exiles go, but not for a price, or a bribe, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot.

14 This says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, The labor of Mitzrayim and merchandise of Ethiopia and of the Saveans, men of tall stature, shall come over to You and they shall be Yours: they shall come after You; in chains they shall come over and they shall fall down to You, they shall make supplication to You, saying, Surely El is in You; and there is none else, there is no other ahlahim.

15 Truly You are an El that hides Yourself, O Ahlohim of Yisrael, the Savior.

16 They shall be ashamed and also be embarrassed, all of them: they shall go to confusion together that are makers of idols.

17 But Yisrael shall be saved in 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 with an everlasting Yahusha : you shall not be ashamed nor embarrassed olam without end.

18 For this says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 that created the shamayim; Ahlohim Himself that formed the earth and made it; He has established it, He created it not in vain, He formed it to be inhabited: I AM 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄; and there is none else.

19 I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I did not say to the zera of Yaakov, You seek Me in vain: I 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 speak tzedakah; I declare things that are right.

20 Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, you that have escaped from the goyim: they have no da’at that set up the wood of their graven image and make tefillah to an El that cannot save.

21 Declare and bring them near, let them take counsel together: who has declared this from ancient time? Who has told it from that time? Have not I 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 ? And there is no ahlahim else beside Me; a just El and a Savior; there is none besides Me.

22 Look to Me and be you saved, all the ends of the earth: for I AM El and there is none else.

23 I have sworn by Myself, The Word is gone out of My mouth in tzedakah, and shall not return, That to Me every knee shall bow and every tongue shall swear.

24 Surely, shall one say, in 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 I have tzedakah and strength: even to Him shall men come; and all that are incensed against Him shall be ashamed.

25 In 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall all the zera of Yisrael be justified and shall tifereth.

46 Bel bows down, Nevo is stooping, their idols were upon the beasts and upon the cattle: your carriages were burdened; they are a burden to the weary beast.

2 They stoop, they bow down together; they could not deliver the burden, but themselves have gone into exile.

3 Shema to Me, O Beit Yaakov and all the remnant of Beit Yisrael, who are borne by Me from the belly, who are carried by Me from the womb:

4 And even to your old age I AM He; and even to your gray hairs will I carry you: I have made you and I will bear you; I will carry you and will deliver you.

5 To whom will you liken Me and make Me equal and compare Me, that we may be alike?

6 They lavish gold out of the bag and weigh silver in the balance and hire a goldsmith; and he makes it into an El: they fall down, yes, they worship.

7 They bear him upon the shoulder, they carry him and set him in his place and he stands; from his place shall he not move: yes, one shall cry to him, yet he cannot answer, nor save him out of his trouble.

8 Remember this and show yourselves to be men: bring it again to mind, O you transgressors.

9 Remember the former things of old: for I AM El and there is none else; I AM Ahlohim and there is none like Me,

10 Declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand and I will do all My pleasure:

11 Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executes My counsel from a far country: yes, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.

12 Shema to Me, you stubborn-hearted, that are far from tzedakah:

13 I bring near My tzedakah; it shall not be far off and My Yahusha shall not tarry: and I will place Yahusha in Tzion for Yisrael My tifereth.

47 Come down and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Bavel, sit on the ground: there is no more kesay, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for you shall no more be called tender and delicate.

2 Take the millstones and grind flour: uncover your veil, make bare the leg, lift up your skirt, pass through the rivers.

3 Your nakedness shall be uncovered, yes, your shame shall be seen: I will take vengeance and I will not meet you as a man.

4 As for our Redeemer, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot is His Name, the Kadosh-One of Yisrael.

5 Sit in silence and get into darkness, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for you shall no more be called, The lady of all malchutim.

6 I was angry with My people, I have polluted My inheritance and given them into your hand: you did show them no rachamim; upon the elderly you have laid a heavy hand and yoke.

7 And you said, I shall be a lady le-olam-va-ed: so that you did not lay these things to your lev, neither did remember the latter end of them.

8 Therefore listen now to this, you that are given to pleasures, that live carelessly, that say in your lev, I am and there is none else beside me; I shall not sit as a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children:

9 But these two things shall come to you in a moment in one yom, the loss of children and widowhood: they shall come upon you in their fullness for the multitude of your sorceries and for the great abundance of your evil spells.

10 For you have trusted in your wickedness: you have said, No one sees me. Your worldly chochmah and your da’at, have perverted you; and you have said in your lev, I am and there is none else beside me.

11 Therefore shall evil come upon you; you shall not know from where it rises: and trouble shall befall you; you shall not be able to put it off of you: and ruin shall come upon you suddenly, which you shall not know.

12 Stand now with your enchantments and with the multitude of your sorceries, in which you have labored from your youth; if so be that you shall be able to profit, if so be that you may prevail.

13 You are worn out by the multitude of your counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up and save you from these things that shall come upon you.

14 See, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to be warmed by, nor fire to sit beside.

15 This shall they be to you and with those you have labored, even your merchants, from your youth: they shall wander every one to his own derech; no one shall save you.

48 Shema to this, O Beit Yaakov, who are called by the name of Yisrael and are come forth out of the mayim of Yahudah, who swear by the Name of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and make mention of the Ahlohim of Yisrael, but not in emet, nor in tzedakah.

2 For they call themselves after the kadosh city and lean upon the Ahlohim of Yisrael; 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot is His Name.

3 I have declared the former things from the beginning; and they went forth out of My mouth and I showed them; I did them suddenly and they came to pass.

4 Because I knew that you are stubborn and your neck is an iron sinew and your forehead brass;

5 I have even from the beginning declared it to you; before it came to pass I showed it to you: lest you should say, My idol has done them and my graven image and my molded image, has commanded them.

6 You have heard and seen all this; and will you not declare it? I have showed you new things from this time, even hidden things and you did not know them.

7 They are created now and not from the beginning; even before this yom you have not heard them; lest you should say, See, I knew them.

8 Yes, you heard not; yes, you knew not; yes, from that time that your ear was not opened: for I knew that you would deal very treacherously and were called a transgressor from the womb.

9 For My Name’s sake will I defer My anger and for My hallel will I be patient with you, so that I cut you not off.

10 See, I have refined you, but not with silver; I have chosen you in the furnace of affliction.

11 For My own sake, even for My own sake, will I do it: for how should My Name be polluted? And I will not give My tifereth to another.

12 Shema to Me, O Yaakov and Yisrael, My called; I AM He; I AM The First, I also am The Last.

13 My hand also has laid the foundation of the earth and My Right Hand has spanned the shamayim: when I call to them, they stand up together.

14 All of you; assemble yourselves and listen. Who among them has declared these things? 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has loved him: he will do His pleasure on Bavel and His Arm shall be on the Chaldeans.

15 I, even I, have spoken; yes, I have called him: I have brought him and he shall prosper in his derech.

16 Come near to Me, listen to this; I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it was, I was there: and now The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and His Ruach, has sent Me.

17 This says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, your Redeemer, the Kadosh-One of Yisrael; I AM 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Ahlohim who teaches you to profit, who leads you by the derech that you should go.

18 O that you had listened to My mitzvoth! Then your shalom would have been there as a river and your tzedakah as the waves of the sea:

19 Your zera also would have been as the sand and the offspring of your inward parts like the gravel of it; his name should not have been cut off nor destroyed from before Me.

20 Go forth from Bavel, flee from the Chaldeans, with a voice of singing; declare and, tell this, utter it even to the ends of the earth; say,𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has redeemed His eved Yaakov.

21 And they thirsted not when He led them through the deserts: He caused the mayim to flow out of The Rock for them: He split The Rock also and the mayim gushed out.

22 There is no shalom, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, to the wicked.

49 Shema, O coastlands, to Me; and hear, you goyim, from far; 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has called Me from the womb; from the inward parts of My eema has He made mention of My Name.

2 And He has made My mouth like a sharp arrow; in the shadow of His hand has He hidden me, and made Me a polished shaft; in His quiver has He hidden Me;

3 And said to Me, You are My Eved, O Yisrael, through whom I will be lifted up.

4 Then I said, I have labored in vain, I have spent My strength for nothing and in vain: yet surely My mishpat is from 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and My work from My Ahlohim.

5 And now, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 that formed Me from the womb to be His Eved, to bring Yaakov again to Him, though Yisrael is not yet gathered, yet I AM esteemed with tifereth in the eyes of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and My Ahlohim shall be My strength.

6 And He said, It is a light, easy and small thing that You should be My Eved to raise up the tribes of Yaakov, and to restore the preserved ones of Yisrael: I will also give You for My Ohr to the heathen, that You may be My Yahusha to the ends of the earth.

7 This says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, the Redeemer of Yisrael, their Kadosh-One, to Him whom man despises, to Him whom the nation abhors, to be the Eved over rulers, melechim shall see and arise, rulers also shall worship because of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 that is faithful and the Kadosh-One of Yisrael and He shall choose You.

8 This says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, In an acceptable time have I heard You and in the yom of Yahusha have I helped You: and I will preserve You and give You for a brit of the people, to restore the land, to cause You to inherit the desolate heritages;

9 That You may say to the prisoners, Go out; to them that are in darkness, Show yourselves. They shall feed on the derachot and their pastures shall be in all the bare hills.

10 They shall not hunger nor thirst; neither shall the heat nor shemesh smite them: for He that has rachamim on them shall also lead them, even by the springs of mayim shall He guide them.

11 And I will make all My mountains a derech and My highways shall be exalted.

12 See, these shall come from far: and, see, these from the north and from the west; and these from the land of Sinim.

13 Shir, O shamayim; and be full of simcha, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains: for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has comforted His people and will have rachamim upon His afflicted.

14 But Tzion said,𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has forsaken me and My Master has forgotten me.

15 Can a woman forget her nursing child, that she should not have rachamim on the son of her womb? Yes perhaps, they may forget, yet will I not forget you.

16 See, I have graven you upon the palms of My hands; your walls are continually before Me.

17 Your children shall hurry back to Me; your destroyers and they that made you a ruin shall depart from you.

18 Lift up your eyes all around and see: all these who have gathered themselves together and have come to You. As I live, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, you shall surely clothe Yourself with them all, as with an ornament and bind them on You, as does a bride.

19 For your waste and your desolate places and the land of your destruction, shall even now be too narrow by reason of the inhabitants and they that swallowed you up shall be far away.

20 The children which you shall have, after you have lost the others, shall say again in your ears, The place is too narrow for me: give place to me that I may live.

21 Then shall you say in your lev, Who has begotten me these, seeing I have lost my children and am barren, an exile, wandering back and forth? Who has brought these up in the aliyah? See, I was left alone; and now all these, where have they been?

22 This says The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, See, I will lift up My hand to the goyim and set up My Standard to the peoples: and they shall bring your sons in their arms and your daughters shall be carried upon their shoulders.

23 And melechim shall be your nursing ahvot and their queens your nursing mothers: they shall bow down to you with their faces toward the earth and lick up the dust of your feet; and you shall know that I AM 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄: for they shall not be ashamed that wait for Me .

24 Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the victors’ exiles delivered?

25 But this says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away and the prey of the ruthless shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contends with You and I will save your children.

26 And I will feed them that oppress you with their own flesh; and they shall be drunk with their own dahm, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 am your Savior and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Yaakov.

50 This says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, Where is the bill of your eema’s divorcement, whom I have put away? Or, which of My creditors is it to whom I have sold you? See, for your iniquities you have sold yourselves and for your transgressions was your eema put away.

2 Why, when I came looking, was there no man? When I called, was there none to answer? Is My hand shortened so that it cannot redeem? Or, have I no Power to deliver? See, at My rebuke I dry up the sea, I make the rivers into a wilderness: their fish stink because there is no mayim and they die for thirst.

3 I clothe the shamayim with blackness and I make sackcloth their covering.

4 The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has given Me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: he awakes boker by boker, He wakes up my ear to hear as the learned.

5 The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has opened My ear and I was not rebellious, neither did I turn away My back.

6 I gave My back to those who smite and My cheeks to those that plucked off the hair:I hid not My face from shame and spitting.

7 For The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 will help Me; therefore shall I not be embarrassed: therefore have I set My face like a flint and I know that I shall not be ashamed.

8 He is near that justifies Me; who will contend with Me? Let us stand together: Who is My adversary? Let him come near to Me.

9 See, The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 will help Me; who is he that shall condemn Me? See, they all shall grow old as a garment; the moth shall eat them up.

10 Who is among you that fears 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, that obeys the voice of His Eved, that walks in darkness and has no ohr? Let him trust in the Name of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and lean upon his Ahlohim.

11 See, all you that kindle a fire, that surround yourselves with sparks: and follow in the ohr of your own fire and in the sparks that you have lit. This shall you have from My hand; you shall lie down in sorrow.

51 Shema to Me, you that follow after tzedakah, you that seek 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 look to The Rock from which you are cut and to the hole of the pit from where you are dug.

2 Look to Avraham your abba and to Sarah that bore you: for I called him alone, blessed him and made him fruitful and increased him.

3 For 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall comfort Tzion: He will comfort all her waste places; and He will make her wilderness like Gan Ayden and her desert like the Gan of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄; simcha and gilah shall be found in it, hodu and the voice of melody.

4 Shema to Me, My people; and give ear to Me, O My nation: for a Torah shall proceed from Me, and My mishpat I will set as an ohr of the goyim.

5 My tzedakah is near; My YAHUSHA shall go forth and My arms shall judge the goyim; the coastlands shall wait upon Me and on My Arm shall they trust.

6 Lift up your eyes to the shamayim and look upon the earth beneath: for the shamayim shall vanish away like smoke and the earth shall grow old like a garment and they that live in it shall die in like manner: but My Yahushua shall be le-olam-va-ed and My tzedakah shall never be abolished.

7 Shema to Me, you that know tzedakah, the people in whose lev is My Torah; fear not the reproach of men, neither be afraid of their insults.

8 For the moth shall eat them up like a garment and the worm shall eat them like wool: but My tzedakah shall be le-olam-va-ed, and My Yahusha from generation to generation.

9 Awake, awake, put on strength, O Arm of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, awake, as in the ancient yamim, in the generations of old. Wasn’t it You that has decreed a severe sentence and wounded the dragon?

10 Are You not He who has dried the sea, the mayim of the great deep; that has made the depths of the sea a derech for the ransomed to cross over?

11 Therefore the redeemed of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall return, and come with singing to Tzion; and everlasting simcha shall be upon their head: they shall obtain simcha and simcha; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.

12 I, even I, am He that comforts you: who are you, that you should be afraid of a man that shall die and of the ben adam who shall be made as grass;

13 And in turn forget 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Maker, that has stretched forth the shamayim and laid the foundations of the earth; and you have feared continually every yom because of the fury of the oppressor, as if he were ready to destroy? And where is the fury of the oppressor?

14 The captive exile is in a hurry that he may be loosed and that he should not die in the pit, nor that his lechem should fail.

15 But I AM 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Ahlohim that divided the Yam Suf, whose waves roared: 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot is His Name.

16 And I have put My Words in Your mouth and I have covered You in the shadow of My hand, that I may plant the shamayim, and lay the foundations of the earth and say to Tzion, You are Ami-My People.

17 Awake, awake, stand up, O Yahrushalayim, you who have drunk at the Hand of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and the cup of His fury; you have drunken the dregs of the cup of trembling and drained them out.

18 There is none to guide her among all the sons whom she has brought forth; neither is there any that takes her by the hand of all the sons that she has brought up.

19 These two things are coming upon you; who shall be sorry for you? Ruin and destruction, the famine and the sword: by whom shall I comfort you?

20 Your sons have fainted, they lie at the head of all the streets, as a wild bull in a net: they are full of the fury of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, the rebuke of your Ahlohim.

21 Therefore listen to this right now, you who are afflicted and drunk, but not with wine:

22 This says your Master, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and your Ahlohim that pleads the cause of His people, See, I have taken out of your hand the cup of trembling, even the dregs of the cup of My fury; you shall no more drink it again:

23 But I will put it into the hand of those that afflict you; who have said to your being, Bow down, that we may walk over you: and you have laid your gooff down like the ground and like the street, to those that walked over you.

52 Awake, awake; put on your strength, O Tzion; put on your beautiful garments, O Yahrushalayim, the kadosh city: from now on there shall no more come into you those not made brit-milah and the unclean.

2 Shake yourself from the dust; arise and sit down, O Yahrushalayim: loose yourself from the bands of your neck, O captive daughter of Tzion.

3 For this says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, You have sold yourselves for nothing; and you shall be redeemed without money.

4 For this says The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, My people went down before into Mitzrayim to sojourn there; and Ashshur oppressed them without cause.

5 Now therefore, what have I here, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, that My people are taken away for nothing? Those that rule over them make them to wail, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄; and My Name continually every yom is despised and mocked.

6 Therefore My People-Ami shall know My Name: therefore they shall know in that yom that I AM He that does speak: see, it is I.

7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of Him that brings Tov News, that publishes shalom; that brings Tov News of tov things, that publishes Yahusha ; that says to Tzion, your Ahlohim reigns!

8 Your watchmen shall lift up their voices; with their voices together shall they shir: for they shall see eye-to-eye, when 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall return to Tzion with rachamim.

9 Break forth into simcha, shir together, you waste places of Yahrushalayim: for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has comforted His people, He has redeemed Yahrushalayim.

10 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has made bare His kadosh Arm in the eyes of all the goyim; and all the ends of the olam shall see the Yahusha of our Ahlohim.

11 Depart, depart, go out from there, touch no unclean thing; go out of the midst of her; be clean, that bear the vessels of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

12 For you shall not come out with haste, nor go by flight: for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 will go before you; and the Ahlohim of Yisrael will be your reward.

13 See, My Eved shall work a wise work, He shall be exalted and extolled and be very high.

14 Many despised Him and His esteem; His appearance was so marred more than any man, and His form marred more than the sons of men:

15 So shall He sprinkle many goyim; the melechim shall shut their mouths at Him: for that which had not been told to them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider.

53 Who has believed our report? And to whom is the Arm of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 revealed?

2 We announced a male child before Him, For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant and as a root out of a dry ground: He has neither form nor beauty; and when we shall see Him, there is no tifereth that we should desire Him.

3 He is despised and rejected of men; A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from Him; He was despised and we esteemed Him not.

4 In emet He has borne our sicknesses and carried our pain: yet we did reckon Him as a leper-naga, smitten of, Ahlohim and afflicted.

5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities: the chastisement for our shalom was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed.

6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned each one to his own derech; and 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.

7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth: He is brought as a Lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is dumb, so He opens not His mouth.

8 He was taken from prison and from mishpat: and who shall declare His generation? For He was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people-ami was He made a leper-naga.

9 And they made His grave with the wicked and with the rich people in His death; because He had done no violence, neither was any deceit in His mouth.

10 Yet it pleased 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 to crush Him and He made Him suffer; He has put Him to grief: when You shall make His being an asham for sin, He shall see His zera, He shall prolong His yamim, and the pleasure of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall prosper in His Hand.

11 He shall see-be The Ohr the result of the travail of His being and shall be satisfied: And by His da’at shall My Tzadik Eved justify many, for He shall bear their iniquities.

12 Therefore will I divide Him a portion with the great and He shall divide the plunder with the strong; because He has poured out His being to death: and He was counted with the transgressors; and He bore the sins of many, and made intercession for their transgressions.

54 Sing, O barren, you that did not bear; break forth into singing and cry aloud, you that did not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married isha, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

2 Enlarge the place of your tent and let them stretch forth the curtains of your dwellings: spare not, lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes;

3 For you shall break forth on the right hand and on the left; and Your zera shall inherit the goyim, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.

4 Fear not; for you shall not be ashamed: neither will you be embarrassed; for you shall not be put to shame: for you shall forget the shame of your youth and shall not remember the reproach of your widowhood anymore.

5 For your Maker is your Husband 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Tzevaot is His Name; and your Redeemer the Kadosh-One of Yisrael; The Ahlohim of the whole earth shall He be called.

6 For 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has called you back as a woman forsaken and grieved in ruach, like an isha of youth, when you were refused, says your Ahlohim.

7 For a small moment have I forsaken you; but with great rachamim will I gather you.

8 In an overflow of My wrath I hid My face from you for a moment; but with everlasting chesed will I have rachamim on you, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Redeemer.

9 For this is as the mayim of Noach to Me: for as I have sworn that the mayim of Noach should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be angry with you, nor rebuke you again.

10 For the mountains shall depart and the hills shall be removed; but My chesed shall not depart from you again, neither shall the brit of My shalom be removed, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 that has rachamim on you.

11 O you afflicted, tossed with storms and Lo-Ruchamah-Not Comforted, see, I will lay your stones with fair colors and lay your foundations with sapphires.

12 And I will make your windows of rubies and your gates of crystal and all your walls of precious stones.

13 And all your children shall be taught by 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄; and great shall be the shalom of your children.

14 In tzedakah shall you be established: you shall be far from oppression; for you shall not fear: and you shall be far from fear; for it shall not come near you.

15 See, they shall surely gather together, but not by Me: whosoever shall gather against you shall fall for your sake.

16 See, I have created the blacksmith that blows the coals in the fire and that brings forth an instrument for his work; and I have also created the waster that destroys.

17 No weapon that is formed against you shall be effective; and every tongue that shall rise up against you to judge you, you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the avadim of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and their tzedakah is from Me, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

55 Hello, every one that thirsts, come to the mayim; and he that has no money; come, buy and eat; yes, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.

2 Why do you spend money for that which is not lechem? And your labor for that which does not satisfy? Shema diligently to Me and eat that which is tov and let your being delight itself in fatness.

3 Incline your ear and come to Me: listen and your being shall live; and I will make an Everlasting Brit with you, even the sure chesed of Dawid.

4 See, I have given Him as a witness to the people, a Leader and Commander to the people.

5 See, You shall call a nation that You knew not, and goyim that knew You not shall run to You because of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 Your Ahlohim, and for the Kadosh-One of Yisrael; for He has lifted You up.

6 Seek 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near:

7 Let the wicked forsake his derech and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him make teshuvah to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, for He will have rachamim upon him; and to our Ahlohim, for He will abundantly pardon.

8 For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your halachot My halachot, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

9 For as the shamayim are higher than the earth, so are My halachot higher than your own halachot and My thoughts than your thoughts.

10 For as the rain comes down and the snow from the shamayim and returns not there, but waters the earth and makes it bring forth and bud, that it may give zera to the sower and lechem to the eater:

11 So shall My Word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please and it shall prosper in the thing where I send it.

12 For you shall go out with simcha and be led back with shalom: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the eytzim of the field shall clap their hands.

13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress eytz and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle eytz: and it shall be to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 for a Name, for an everlasting ot that shall not be cut off.

56 This says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, Guard mishpat and do mishpat: for My Yahusha is near to come and My tzedakah to be revealed.

2 Blessed is the man that does this and the ben adam that lays hold on it, that guards The Shabbat from polluting it and guards his hand from doing any evil.

3 Neither let the son of the ger, that has joined himself to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, speak in this manner, saying,𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has utterly separated me from His people: neither let the eunuch say, See, I am a dry eytz.

4 For this says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 to the eunuchs that keep My Shabbats and choose the things that please Me and take hold of My brit;

5 Even to them will I give in My Bayit and within My walls a place and a name better than that of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.

6 Also the sons of the ger, that join themselves to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, to serve Him and to love the Name of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, to be His avadim, every person that guards The Shabbat from polluting it and takes hold of My brit;

7 Even them will I bring to My kadosh har, and make them full of simcha in My Beit-Tefillah: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon My altar; for My Bayit shall be called a Beit-Tefillah for all the goyim.

8 The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 who gathers the outcasts of Yisrael says, Yet I will gather others to Him, besides those that have been gathered to Him.

9 All you beasts of the field, come to devour, yes, all you beasts in the forest.

10 His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.

11 Yes, they are greedy dogs who can never have enough and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own derech, each one for his own gain, from his own view.

12 Come, they say, I will fetch wine and we will fill ourselves with strong drink; and tomorrow shall be as today and much more abundant.

57 The tzadik man perishes and no man takes it to lev: and merciful and kind men are taken away, none considers that the tzadik is taken away from the evil to come.

2 He shall enter into shalom: they shall rest in their beds, each one walking in his tzedakah.

3 But come here, you sons of the sorceress, the zera of the adulterer and the whore.

4 Against whom do you play games? Against whom do you open your mouth wide and stick out your tongue? Are you not children of transgression, the zera of falsehood?

5 Comforting yourselves with idols under every green eytz, slaying the children in the valleys under the clefts of the rocks?

6 Among the smooth stones of the river is your portion; they are your lot: even to them have you poured a drink offering, you have offered a grain offering. Should I receive comfort in these works?

7 Upon a proud and high har have you set your bed: even there you went up to offer sacrifices.

8 Behind the doors also and the posts have you set up your remembrance: for you have gone up and uncovered yourself to another other than Me; you have enlarged your bed and made a brit with them also; you loved their bed where you saw their hand.

9 And you went to the Molech with ointment and did increase your perfumes and did send your messengers far off, and did lower yourself even to Sheol.

10 You have wearied yourself in your many wanderings; yet you never said I give up and will stop. You have wasted your chayim with the guilt of your hands; therefore you were not grieved.

11 And of whom have you been afraid, or feared, that you have lied and have not remembered Me, nor taken it to your lev? Have not I held My shalom in the past and you have not feared Me?

12 I will declare your tzedakah and your works; for they shall not profit you.

13 When you cry for help, let your collection of idols deliver you; but the wind shall carry them all away; vanity shall take them: but he that puts his trust in Me shall possess the land and shall inherit My kadosh har;

14 And shall say, Clear up, clear up, prepare the Derech back, take away the stumbling-block out of the derech of My people.

15 For this says the High and Exalted One that inhabits eternity, whose Name is Kadosh; I live in the high and Kadosh-Place, with him that is of a contrite and humble ruach, to revive the ruach of the humble and to revive the lev of the contrite ones.

16 For I will not strive le-olam-va-ed, neither will I always be angry: for then their ruach would not survive before Me, even the beings that I have made.

17 For the iniquity of his covetousness was I angry and smote him: I hid Myself and was angry and he went on backsliding in the derech of his lev.

18 I have seen his halachot and will heal him: I will lead him also and restore comforts to him and to his mourners.

19 I create the fruit of the lips; Shalom, shalom to him that is far off, and to him that is near, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and I will heal him.

20 But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose mayim casts up mud and dirt.

21 There is no shalom, says my Ahlohim, to the wicked.

58 Cry aloud, spare not, lift up your voice like a shofar and show My people their transgression and Beit Yaakov their sins.

2 Yet they seek Me daily and delight to know My halachot, as a nation that did tzedakah and forsook not the ordinances of their Ahlohim: they ask from Me the ordinances of mishpat; they take delight in approaching their ahlahim.

3 Why have we fasted, they say and yet You do not see? Why have we afflicted our being and You take no notice? See, in the yom of your fast you do your own pleasure, while keeping your laborers working hard.

4 See, your fasts lead to strife and contention and to hitting with violent blows: fasting on a yom like today, will not make your voice to be heard on high.

5 Is this the kind of fast that I have chosen? A yom for a man to mortify himself? Is the object to hang your head down like a reed and to spread sackcloth and ashes under yourself? Will you call this a fast, an acceptable yom to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 ?

6 Rather is not this the fast that I have chosen? To loose the chains of wickedness, to untie the heavy burdens and to let the oppressed go free and to break off every yoke?

7 Is it not to distribute your lechem to the hungry and to bring the poor that are cast out to your bayit? And when you see the naked, that you cover him; and that you fulfill your duties to your mishpacha?

8 Then shall your ohr break forth as the boker and your health shall spring forth speedily: and your tzedakah shall go before you; and the tifereth of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall be your reward.

9 Then shall you call and 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall answer; you shall cry and He shall say, Hinayne. If you take away from your midst the yoke, the finger pointing and the speaking of unrighteousness;

10 And if you extend your lev to the hungry and satisfy the afflicted being; then shall your ohr rise in the darkness and your darkness shall become as the noonday:

11 And 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall guide you continually and satisfy your being in drought and make fat your bones: and you shall be like a watered garden and like a spring of mayim, whose mayim fails not.

12 And they that shall be from among you shall build the old ruined places, you shall restore the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called, Gadar-Peretz, the restorer of paths to live in.

13 If you turn away your own foot from The Shabbat, from doing your own pleasure on My kadosh yom; and call The Shabbat a delight, the kadosh yom of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, honorable; and shall kavod Him, not doing your own halachot, nor finding your own pleasure, nor speaking your own words:

14 Then shall you delight yourself in 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄; and I will cause you to ride upon the high places of the earth and feed you with the heritage of Yaakov your abba: for the mouth of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has spoken it.

59 See, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither His ear heavy, that it cannot hear:

2 But your iniquities have brought separation between you and your Ahlohim and your sins have hid His face from you, that He will not hear.

3 For your hands are defiled with dahm and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue has muttered perverseness.

4 None calls for mishpat, nor any pleads for emet: they trust in vanity and speak lies; they conceive mischief and bring forth iniquity.

5 They hatch snakes’ eggs and weave the spider’s web: He that eats of their eggs shall die and when one is crushed a viper breaks out.

6 Their webs shall not become garments, neither shall they cover themselves with their works: their works are works of iniquity and acts of violence are in their hands.

7 Their feet run to do evil and they make haste to shed innocent dahm: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; ruin and destruction are in their paths.

8 The derech of shalom they know not; and there is no mishpat in their goings: they have made for themselves crooked paths: whoever goes in them shall not know shalom.

9 Therefore is mishpat far from us, neither does mishpat overtake us: we wait for ohr, but see darkness; for brightness, but we walk in darkness.

10 We grope for the wall like a blind man and we grope as if we had no eyes: we stumble at noonday as if it were the lyla; we are in desolate places as dead men.

11 We roar like bears and mourn sadly like doves: we look for mishpat, but there is none; for YAHUSHA, but He is far off from us.

12 For our transgressions are multiplied before You and our sins testify against us: for our transgressions are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them;

13 In transgressing and lying against 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and departing away from our Ahlohim, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the lev words of falsehood.

14 And mishpat is turned away and mishpat stands far off: for emet is fallen in the street and equity cannot enter.

15 Yes, emet fails; and he that departs from evil makes himself a prey: and 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 saw it and it displeased Him that there was no mishpat.

16 And He saw that there was no man and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore His Arm brought YAHUSHA to Him; and His tzedakah, it upheld Him.

17 For He put on tzedakah as a breastplate and a helmet of YAHUSHA upon His head and He put on the garments of vengeance for clothing and was clad with zeal as a cloak.

18 According to their deeds, accordingly He will repay, wrath to His adversaries, recompense to His enemies; to the coastlands He will repay recompense.

19 So shall they fear the Name of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 from the west and His tifereth from the rising of the shemesh. When the enemy shall come in like a river, The Ruach Hakodesh of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall lift up a standard against him to humble him.

20 And the Redeemer shall come to Tzion and to them that make teshuvah from transgression inYaakov, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

21 As for Me, this is My brit with them, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄; My Ruach that is upon You and My Words which I have put in Your mouth, shall not depart out of Your mouth, nor out of the mouth of Your zera, nor out of the mouth of Your zera’s zera, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, from now on and le-olam-va-ed.

60 Arise, shine; for your Ohr has come and the tifereth of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has risen upon you.

2 For, see, the darkness shall cover the earth and gross darkness the goyim: but 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall arise upon you and His tifereth shall be seen upon you.

3 And the goyim shall come to Your Ohr, and melechim to the brightness of Your rising.

4 Lift up your eyes all around and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to You: Your sons shall come from far, and Your daughters shall be nursed at Your side.

5 Then You shall see and flow together, and Your lev shall throb and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to You, the wealth of the goyim shall come to You.

6 The multitude of camels shall cover Your land, the dromedaries of Midyan and Ephah; all those from Sheva shall come: they shall bring gold and incense; and they shall proclaim the tehillot of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

7 All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together to You, the rams of Nevayoth shall serve You: they shall come up with acceptance upon My altar and I will bring splendor to the Bayit of My tifereth.

8 Who are these that fly as a cloud and as the doves to their windows?

9 Because the coastlands shall wait for Me and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring Your sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, to the Name of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 your Ahlohim and to the Kadosh-One of Yisrael because He has lifted you up.

10 And the sons of foreigners shall build up Your walls and their melechim shall serve You: for in My wrath I smote You, but in My chen have I had rachamim on You.

11 Therefore Your gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut yom, or lyla that men may bring to You the wealth of the goyim and that their melechim may be brought.

12 For the nation and malchut that will not serve You shall perish; yes, those goyim shall be utterly wasted.

13 The tifereth of Levanon shall come to You, the cypress eytz, the pine eytz and the box together, to beautify the place of My Kadosh-Place; and I will remake the place of My feet with tifereth.

14 The sons also of them that afflicted You shall come bowing to You; and all they that despised You shall bow themselves down at the soles of Your feet; and they shall call You, The city of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, The Tzion of the Kadosh-One of Yisrael.

15 Whereas You have been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through You, I will make You an Eternal Excellency, a simcha of many generations.

16 You shall also suck the milk of the goyim and shall suck the breasts of melechim: and you shall know that I 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 am your Savior and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Yaakov.

17 For brass I will bring gold and for iron I will bring silver and for wood brass and for stones iron: I will also make your officers shalom and your leaders tzedakah.

18 Chamas shall no more be heard in your land, nor ruin and destruction within your borders; but you shall call your walls YAHUSHA and your gates Tehilla.

19 The shemesh shall be no more your ohr by yom; neither for brightness shall the yarayach give ohr to you: but 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall be to you an everlasting Ohr and your Ahlohim your tifereth.

20 Your shemesh shall no more go down; neither shall your yarayach withdraw itself: for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall be your everlasting Ohr and the yamim of your mourning shall be ended.

21 Your people also shall be all tzadik: they shall inherit the land le-olam-va-ed, the Branch-Netzer of My planting, the work of My hands, that I may be lifted up.

22 A little one shall become a thousand and a small one a strong nation: I 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 will quicken them in their time.

61 The Ruach of The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is upon Me; because 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has anointed Me to preach The Besorah to the poor-meek; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim deliverance to the exiles, and recovering of sight to the blind and to send deliverance to those that are devistated;

2 To proclaim the acceptable year of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and the yom of vengeance of our Ahlohim; to comfort all that mourn;

3 To appoint to them that mourn in Tzion, to give to them a keter for ashes, the oil of simcha for mourning, the garment of hallel for the ruach of heaviness; that they might be called eytzim of tzedakah, the planting of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, that He might be lifted up.

4 And they shall rebuild the old ruins, they shall raise up the former desolations and they shall repair the ruined cities, the desolations of many generations.

5 And foreigners shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.

6 But you shall be named the kohanim of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄: men shall call you the avadim of our Ahlohim: you shall overcome the strength of the goyim, and in their tifereth shall you boast yourselves.

7 For your shame you shall have a double portion of inheritance; and you shall simcha in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double portion: and everlasting simcha shall be theirs.

8 For I 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 love mishpat, I hate robbery for burnt offerings; and I will direct their work in emet and I will make an Everlasting Brit with them.

9 And their zera shall be known among the goyim and their offspring among the peoples: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the zera that 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has blessed.

10 I will greatly simcha in 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, my being shall be full of simcha in my Ahlohim; for He has clothed me with the garments of Yahusha , He has covered me with the robe of tzedakah, as a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

11 For as the earth brings forth her bud and as the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 will cause tzedakah and hallel to spring forth before all the goyim.

62 For Tzion’s sake will I not hold My shalom and for Yahrushalayim’s sake I will not rest, until the tzedakah of it goes forth as brightness and the YAHUSHA of it as a lamp that burns.

2 And the goyim shall see Your tzedakah, and all melechim Your tifereth: and you shall be called by a new name, which the mouth of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall name.

3 You shall also be a keter of tifereth in the hand of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and a royal diadem in the hand of our Ahlohim.

4 You shall no more be termed: Uzuvah- Forsaken; neither shall your land anymore be termed Desolate: but you shall be called: Hephzi-Vah-My Delight Is In Her and your land Beulah-Married; for 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 delights in you and your land shall be married.

5 For just as a young man marries a virgin, so shall Your sons marry you: and as the bridegroom has simcha over the bride, so shall your Ahlohim simcha over you.

6 I have set watchmen upon your walls, O Yahrushalayim, which shall never hold their shalom yom, or lyla: you that make mention of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, keep not silent,

7 And give Him no rest, until He establishes and makes Yahrushalayim a hallel in the earth.

8 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has sworn by His Right Hand and by the Arm of His strength, Surely I will no more give your grain to be food for your enemies; and the sons of the ger shall not drink your wine, that for which you have labored:

9 But they that have gathered it shall eat it and hallel 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄; and they that have brought it together shall drink it in the places of My kadosh courts.

10 Go through, go through the gates; prepare the derech of the people; build up, build up the highway; get rid of the stones; lift up a banner for the goyim.

11 See, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has proclaimed to the ends of the olam, Say to the daughter of Tzion, See, your Yahusha comes; see, His reward is with Him and His work before Him.

12 And they shall call them, The kadosh people, The redeemed of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄: and you shall be called, Sought Out, A city not forsaken.

63 Who is this that comes from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? This that is with tifereth in His apparel, traveling in the greatness of His strength? It is I that speak in tzedakah, mighty to save.

2 Why are you red in Your apparel and Your garments like him that tramples in the winepress?

3 I have trampled the winepress alone; and from the goyim there was none with Me: for I will trample them in My anger and trample them in My fury; and their dahm shall be sprinkled upon My garments and I will stain all My garments.

4 For the yom of vengeance is in My lev, and the year of My redeemed has come.

5 And I looked and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore My own Arm brought YAHUSHA to Me; and in My fury, it upheld Me.

6 And I will trample down the goyim in My anger and make them drunk in My fury and I will bring down their strength to the earth.

7 I will mention the loving chesed of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and the tehillot of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, according to all that 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 has bestowed on us and the great tov toward Beit Yisrael, which He has bestowed on them according to His many rachamim and according to the multitude of His loving chesed.

8 For He said, Surely they are Ami-My People, children that will not lie: so He became their Savior.

9 In all their affliction He was afflicted, and The Malach of His Presence saved them: in His ahava and in His pity He redeemed them; and He lifted them and carried them all the yamim of old.

10 But they rebelled and grieved His Ruach Hakodesh: therefore He became their enemy and He fought against them.

11 Then He remembered the yamim of old, Moshe and His people, saying, Where is He that brought them up out of the sea with the shepherd of His flock? Where is He that put His Ruach Hakodesh within him?

12 That led them by the right hand of Moshe with His tifereth Arm, dividing the mayim before them, to make for Himself an everlasting Name?

13 That led them through the deep and as a horse in the wilderness, that they should not stumble?

14 As a beast goes down into the valley and The Ruach of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 causes him to rest: so did You lead Your people, to make for Yourself a wonderful Name.

15 Look down from the shamayim and see from the home of Your kadosh Dwelling of tifereth: where is Your zeal and Your strength, the sounding of Your inward parts and of Your rachamim towards me? Are they being withheld?

16 Doubtless You are our Abba, though Avraham be ignorant of us and Yisrael acknowledge us not: You, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, are our Abba, our Redeemer; Your Name is from everlasting.

17 O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, why have You made us go astray from Your halachot and hardened our lev from Your fear? Return for Your avadim’s sake, the tribes of Your inheritance.

18 Your kadosh nation has possessed the land but only for a little while: our adversaries have trampled down Your Kadosh-Place.

19 We are Yours: You never ruled over them; they were not called by Your Name.

64 Oh that You would tear open the shamayim, that You would come down, that the mountains would shake at Your presence,

2 As when the melting fire burns, the fire causes the mayim to boil, to make Your Name known to Your adversaries, that the goyim may tremble at Your presence!

3 When You did awesome things that we did not look for, You came down and the mountains flowed down at Your presence.

4 For since the beginning of the olam men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither has the eye seen, O Ahlohim, beside You, what He has prepared for him that waits for Him.

5 You shall meet with him that has simcha and works tzedakah, who remembers You and Your halachot: see, You were angry; when we sinned in those things for a long time and now, should we be saved?

6 But we are all as an unclean thing and all our tzedakah are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

7 And there is none that calls upon Your Name, who stirs himself to take hold of You: for You have hidden Your face from us and have consumed us because of our iniquities.

8 But now, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, You are our Abba; we are the clay and You our Potter; and we all are the work of Your hand.

9 Be not very angry, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, neither remember iniquity le-olam-va-ed: see, look, we beg You, we are all Your nation.

10 Your kadosh cities are a wilderness; Tzion is a wilderness, Yahrushalayim a ruin.

11 Our kadosh and beautiful Bayit, where our ahvot gave You hallel, is burned up with fire: and all our pleasant things are laid in ruin.

12 Will You restrain Yourself in light of all these things, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 ? Will You hold Your response from us and afflict us very heavily?

65 I AM sought by them that asked not for Me; I am found by those that did not seek Me: I said, Hinayne, Hinayne, to a nation that was not called by My Name.

2 I have spread out My hands all the yom to a rebellious people, who walk in a derech that was not tov, after their own thoughts;

3 A people that provokes Me to anger continually to My face; that sacrifices in gardens and burns incense upon altars of brick;

4 Who remain among the graves and lodge in the monuments, who eat swine’s flesh and the broth of unclean meat is in their vessels;

5 Who say, Stand by yourself, come not near me; for I am more tzadik than you. These people are a smoke in My nose, a fire that burns all the yom.

6 See, it is written before Me: I will not keep silent, but will repay, even recompense into their bosom,

7 Your iniquities and the iniquities of your ahvot together, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, who have burned incense upon the mountains and blasphemed Me upon the hills: therefore will I measure their former work and send it back into their bosom.

8 This says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, As the new wine is found in the cluster and one says, Destroy it not; for a bracha is in it: so will I do for My avadim’s sakes, that I may not destroy them all.

9 And I will bring forth a zera out of Yaakov and out of Yahudah an heir of My mountains: and My chosen ones shall inherit it and My avadim shall live there.

10 And Sharon shall be for a fold of flocks and the Valley of Achor a place for the herds to lie down in, for My people that have sought Me.

11 But you are they that forsake 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, that forget My kadosh har, that prepare a shulchan for G-d, and that furnish the drink offering to Mani.

12 Therefore will I number you to the sword and you shall all bow down to the slaughter: because when I called, you did not answer; when I spoke, you did not hear; but did evil before My eyes and chose that in which I did not delight.

13 Therefore this says The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, See, My avadim shall eat, but you shall be hungry: see, My avadim shall drink, but you shall be thirsty: see, My avadim shall simcha, but you shall be ashamed:

14 See, My avadim shall shir for simcha of lev, but you shall cry for sorrow of lev and shall wail for breaking of ruach.

15 And you shall leave your name for a curse to My chosen: for The Master 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall slay you and call His avadim by another name:

16 That he who blesses himself in the earth shall bless himself in the Ahlohim of emet; and he that swears in the earth shall swear by the Ahlohim of emet; because the former troubles are forgotten and because they are hidden from My eyes.

17 For, see, I create a renewed shamayim and a renewed earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.

18 But gilah and simcha le-olam-va-ed in that which I recreate: for, see, I recreate Yahrushalayim for rejoicing and her people for simcha.

19 And I will simcha in Yahrushalayim and simcha in Ami-My People: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.

20 There shall be no more there an infant of just a few yamim, nor an old man that has not filled his yamim: for the child shall die a hundred years old; but the sinner being a hundred years old shall be cursed.

21 And they shall build houses and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards and eat the fruit of them.

22 They shall not build and another inhabit; they shall not plant and another eat: for as the yamim of an eytz so are the yamim of My people and My chosen people shall outlive the work of their hands.

23 They shall not labor in vain, nor conceive children for trouble; for they are the zera blessed of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and their offspring remains with them.

24 And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.

25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together and the lion shall eat straw like the ox: and dust shall be the serpent’s food. They shall not hurt nor destroy in My entire kadosh har, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

66 This says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, The shamayim are My kesay and the earth is My footstool: where is the Bayit that you will build for Me? And where is the place of My rest?

2 For all those things have My hands made and all those things that have been, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite ruach and who trembles at My Word.

3 He that kills an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrifices a lamb, as if he cut off a dog’s neck; he that offers a grain offering, as if he offered pig’s dahm; he that burns incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yes, they have chosen their own halachot and their beings delight in their own bominations.

4 I also will choose their delusions and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, no one did answer; when I spoke, they did not hear: but they did evil before My eyes and chose that in which I did not delight.

5 Hear The Word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, you that tremble at His Word; your brothers that hated you, that cast you out for My Name’s sake, said, Let 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 be lifted up: but He shall appear to your simcha and they shall be ashamed.

6 A voice of noise from the city, a voice from the Hekal, the voice of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 that repays His enemies.

7 Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a Male-Child.

8 Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one yom? Or, shall a nation be born at once? For as soon as Tzion travailed, she brought forth her children.

9 Shall I bring to the birth and not cause to bring forth? Says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄: shall I cause to bring forth and shut the womb? Says your Ahlohim.

10 Gilah with Yahrushalayim and have gilah with her, all you that love her: simcha greatly with her, all you that mourn for her:

11 That you may suck and be satisfied with the breasts of her comforts; that you may drink deeply and be delighted with the abundance of her tifereth.

12 For this says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, See, I will extend shalom to her like a river and the tifereth of the goyim like a flowing river: then shall you feed, you shall be carried upon her sides and be bounced upon her knees.

13 As one whom his eema comforts, so will I comfort you; and you shall be comforted in Yahrushalayim.

14 And when you see this, your lev shall simcha and your bones shall flourish like tender grass: and the hand of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall be known towards His avadim, but His displeasure toward His enemies.

15 For, see,𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 will come with fire and with His mirkavot like a whirlwind, to render His anger with fury and His rebuke with flames of fire.

16 For by fire and by His sword will 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 plead with all flesh: and the slain of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shall be many.

17 They that set themselves apart and purify themselves in the gardens one behind another with an eytz in the midst, eating pig’s flesh and the abomination and the mouse, shall be taken away together, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

18 For I knowing their works and their thoughts: shall come and I will gather all goyim and tongues; and they shall come and see My tifereth.

19 And I will put an ot on them and I will send some of them as survivors to the goyim, to Tarshish, Pul and Lud, that draw the bow, to Tuval and Yavan, to the coastlands far off, that have not heard of My fame, neither have seen My tifereth; and they shall declare My tifereth among the goyim.

20 And they shall bring all your brothers for an offering to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 out of all goyim upon horses and on mirkavot and on litters and upon wagons and upon swift beasts, to My kadosh har Yahrushalayim, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, as the children of Yisrael bring an offering in a clean vessel into the Bayit of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

21 And I will also take from among them kohanim and Lewiym, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

22 For as the renewed shamayim and the renewed earth, which I will make, shall remain before Me, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, so shall Your zera and Your name remain.

23 And it shall come to pass, that from one chodesh to another and from one Shabbat to another, all flesh shall come to worship before Me, says 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

24 And they shall go forth and look upon the corpses of the men that have transgressed against Me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be repulsive to all flesh. Ahmein.
