Yahweh Frees Israel

12 "Listen to me, Jacob, and Israel, {whom I called}:a I [am] he. I [am the] first; also I [am the] last. 13 Indeed, my hand founded [the] earth, and my right hand spread out [the] heavens; [when] I summonb them, they stand in position together. 14 Assemble, all of you, and hear! Who among them declared these [things]? Yahweh loves him; he shall performc his wish against Babylon and his arm [against] {the Chaldeans}.d 15 I, I myself, I have spoken! Indeed, I have called him. I have brought him, and he will be successful [in] his way. 16 Draw near to me; hear this! I have not spoken in secrecy from [the] {beginning};e from [the] time {it came to be},f there I [have been]; And now the Lord Yahweh has sent me and his Spirit." 17 Thus says Yahweh, your redeemer, the holy one of Israel: "I [am] Yahweh your God, {who teaches} you to profit, leads you in [the] way you should go. 18 O that you had listened attentively to my commandments! Then your prosperity would have been like [a] river, and your righteousness like the waves of the sea. 19 And your offspring would have been like the sand, and the descendants of your {body}g like its grains.h It would not be cut off, and its name would not be destroyed from my presence." 20 Go out from Babylon! Flee from Chaldea! Proclaimi [it] with a shoutj of rejoicing; proclaimk this! {Send it forth}l to the end of the earth; say, "Yahweh has redeemed his servant Jacob!" 21 And [when] he led them through the deserts, they were not thirsty; he made water flow from [the] rock for them, and he split [the] rock, and [the] water gushed out. 22 "There is no peace," says Yahweh, "for the wicked."
