Deliverance Promised

12 "Listen to Me, O Jacob, even Israel awhom I called ; 1I am He, 2I am the first, I am also the last. 13 "Surely My hand 3founded the earth, And My right hand spread out the heavens ; When I 4call to them, they stand together. 14 "5Assemble, all of you, and listen ! 6Who among them has declared these things ? The LORD loves him; he will 7carry out His good pleasure on 8Babylon, And His arm will be against the Chaldeans. 15 "I, even I, have spoken ; indeed I have 9called him, I have brought him, and He will make his ways successful. 16 "10Come near to Me, listen to this : From the first I have 11not spoken in secret, 12From the time it took place, I was there. And now 13the Lord bGOD has sent Me, and His Spirit." 17 Thus says the LORD, your 14Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, "I am the LORD your God, who teaches you to profit, Who 15leads you in the way you should go. 18 "If only you had 16paid attention to My commandments ! Then your c17well-being would have been like a river, And your 18righteousness like the waves of the sea. 19 "Your d19descendants would have been like the sand, And eyour offspring like its grains ; 20Their name would never be cut off or destroyed from My presence." 20 21Go forth from Babylon ! Flee from the Chaldeans ! Declare with the sound of 22joyful shouting, proclaim this, 23Send it out to the end of the earth ; Say, "24The LORD has redeemed His servant Jacob." 21 They did not 25thirst when He led them through the deserts. He 26made the water flow out of the rock for them; He split the rock and 27the water gushed forth. 22 "28There is no peace for the wicked," says the LORD.
