Isaiah 48:3-13 (Lexham English Bible)

View In My Bible
3 "I declared the former things from {of old},a and they went out from my mouth. And I {announced}b them suddenly; I acted,c and they came [to pass], 4 because {I know}d that you [are] obstinate, and your neck an iron sinew, and your forehead bronze. 5 And I declared [them] to you from of old; I { announced}e [them] to you before they came [to pass] so that you would not say, 'My idol did them, and my image and my cast image commanded them.' 6 You have heard; see it all. And will you not declare [it]? I {announce}f new things to you from this time and hidden things thatg you have not known. 7 Now they are created, and not from {of old},h and before today, and you have not heard them so that you could not say, "Look! I knew them." 8 Neither have you heard, nor have you known, nor from {of old}i has your ear been opened. For I knew you would deal treacherously, very treacherously, and you [are] called a rebel from [the] womb. 9 For the sake of my name I {refrain from}j my anger, and [for] my praise I restrain [it] for you [so as] not to cut you off. 10 Look! I have refined you, butk not likel silver; I have chosen you in [the] furnace of misery. 11 For my own sake, for my own sake I do [it]; for why should itm be defiled? And I will not give my glory to another."

Yahweh Frees Israel

12 "Listen to me, Jacob, and Israel, {whom I called}:n 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 summono them, they stand in position together.
