Isaiah 48:3-13 (Young's Literal Translation)

View In My Bible
3 The former things from that time I declared, And from my mouth they have gone forth, And I proclaim them, Suddenly I have done, and it cometh. 4 From my knowing that thou art obstinate, And a sinew of iron thy neck, And thy forehead brass, 5 And I declare to thee from that time, Before it cometh I have caused thee to hear, Lest thou say, `Mine idol hath done them, And my graven image, And my molten image did command them. 6 Thou hast heard, see the whole of it, And ye, do ye not declare? I have caused thee to hear new things from this time, And things reserved that ye knew not. 7 Now they have been produced and not from that time, Yea, before the day, and thou hast not heard them, Lest thou say, `Lo, I have known them.' 8 Yea, thou hast not heard, Yea, thou hast not known, Yea, from that time not opened hath thine ear, For I have known thou dealest treacherously, And `Transgressor from the belly,' One is crying to thee. 9 For My name's sake I defer Mine anger, And My praise I restrain for thee, So as not to cut thee off. 10 Lo, I have refined thee, and not with silver, I have chosen thee in a furnace of affliction. 11 For My sake, for Mine own sake, I do [it], For how is it polluted? And Mine honour to another I give not. 12 Hearken to me, O Jacob, and Israel, My called one, I [am] He, I [am] first, and I [am] last; 13 Also, My hand hath founded earth, And My right hand stretched out the heavens, I am calling unto them, they stand together.
