14Thussays the LORD your 1Redeemer, the HolyOne of Israel, "For your sake I have sent to Babylon, And will bring them alldown as fugitives, aEven the 2Chaldeans, into the 3shipsbin which they rejoice.
"I am the LORD, your HolyOne, 4The Creator of Israel, your 5King."
16Thussays the LORD, Who 6makes a way through the sea And a path through the mightywaters,
Who bringsforth the 7chariot and the horse, The army and the mightyman (They will liedowntogether and not rise again; They have been 8quenched and extinguished like a wick ):
"9Do not call to mind the formerthings, Or ponderthings of the past.
19"Behold, I will dosomething10new, Now it will springforth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even11make a roadway in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert.
"The beasts of the field will glorify Me, The 12jackals and the ostriches, Because I have 13givenwaters in the wilderness And rivers in the desert, To givedrink to My chosenpeople.
"The peoplewhom14I formed for Myself 15Will declare My praise.
