Isaiah 42:13-23 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
13 The LORD will march out like a mighty1 man, like a warrior2 he will stir up his zeal;3 with a shout4 he will raise the battle cry and will triumph over his enemies.5 14 "For a long time I have kept silent,6 I have been quiet and held myself back.7 But now, like a woman in childbirth, I cry out, I gasp and pant.8 15 I will lay waste9 the mountains10 and hills and dry up all their vegetation; I will turn rivers into islands and dry up11 the pools. 16 I will lead12 the blind13 by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light14 before them and make the rough places smooth.15 These are the things I will do; I will not forsake16 them. 17 But those who trust in idols, who say to images, 'You are our gods,'17 will be turned back in utter shame.18

Israel Blind and Deaf

18 "Hear, you deaf;19 look, you blind, and see! 19 Who is blind20 but my servant,21 and deaf like the messenger22 I send? Who is blind like the one committed23 to me, blind like the servant of the LORD? 20 You have seen many things, but have paid no attention; your ears are open, but you hear nothing."24 21 It pleased the LORD for the sake25 of his righteousness to make his law26 great and glorious. 22 But this is a people plundered27 and looted, all of them trapped in pits28 or hidden away in prisons.29 They have become plunder, with no one to rescue them;30 they have been made loot, with no one to say, "Send them back." 23 Which of you will listen to this or pay close attention31 in time to come?
