Isaiah 66

CEB 1 The LORD says: Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool. So where could you build a house for me, and where could my resting place be? NRS 1 Thus says the Lord: Heaven is my throne and the earth is my footstool; what is the house that you would build for me, and what is my resting place? CEB 2 My hand made all these things and brought them into being, says the LORD. But here is where I will look: to the humble and contrite in spirit, who tremble at my word. NRS 2 All these things my hand has made, and so all these things are mine, says the Lord. But this is the one to whom I will look, to the humble and contrite in spirit, who trembles at my word. CEB 3 The one who slaughters an ox kills a person; the one who sacrifices a sheep breaks a dog's neck; the one who makes a grain offering offers swine's blood; the one who burns incense blesses an idol. All these have chosen their own ways, and prefer their detestable things. NRS 3 Whoever slaughters an ox is like one who kills a human being; whoever sacrifices a lamb, like one who breaks a dog's neck; whoever presents a grain offering, like one who offers swine's blood; whoever makes a memorial offering of frankincense, like one who blesses an idol. These have chosen their own ways, and in their abominations they take delight; CEB 4 So I too will choose to punish them, to bring horrors upon them, since I called and no one answered. I spoke and no one heard, but they did evil in my eyes. What I didn't want, they chose. NRS 4 I also will choose to mock them, and bring upon them what they fear; because, when I called, no one answered, when I spoke, they did not listen; but they did what was evil in my sight, and chose what did not please me. CEB 5 Listen to the LORD's word, you who tremble at his word: Your family members, those who hate and exclude you because of my name, have said, "Let the LORD be glorified; let's see your joy." But they will be ashamed. NRS 5 Hear the word of the Lord, you who tremble at his word: Your own people who hate you and reject you for my name's sake have said, "Let the Lord be glorified, so that we may see your joy"; but it is they who shall be put to shame. CEB 6 The sound of an uproar from the city! A sound from the temple! The sound of the LORD repaying his enemies what they have earned. NRS 6 Listen, an uproar from the city! A voice from the temple! The voice of the Lord, dealing retribution to his enemies! CEB 7 Before she was in labor, she gave birth. Before her pangs came upon her, she delivered a boy. NRS 7 Before she was in labor she gave birth; before her pain came upon her she delivered a son. CEB 8 Whoever heard of such a thing? Whoever saw such things as these? Can a land come to birth in one day? Can a nation be born all at once? Yet as soon as birth pangs came, Zion bore her children. NRS 8 Who has heard of such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall a land be born in one day? Shall a nation be delivered in one moment? Yet as soon as Zion was in labor she delivered her children. CEB 9 Will I open the womb and not bring to birth? says the LORD. Will I, who create life, close the womb? says your God. NRS 9 Shall I open the womb and not deliver? says the Lord; shall I, the one who delivers, shut the womb? says your God. CEB 10 Celebrate with Jerusalem; be happy with her, all you who love her! Rejoice with her in joy, all you who mourn over her, NRS 10 Rejoice with Jerusalem, and be glad for her, all you who love her; rejoice with her in joy, all you who mourn over her— CEB 11 so that you may nurse and be satisfied from her comforting breasts, that you may drink and be refreshed from her full breasts. NRS 11 that you may nurse and be satisfied from her consoling breast; that you may drink deeply with delight from her glorious bosom. CEB 12 The LORD says: Look, I'm extending prosperity to her like a river, and the wealth of nations like an overflowing stream. You will nurse and be carried on the hip and bounced upon the knee. NRS 12 For thus says the Lord: I will extend prosperity to her like a river, and the wealth of the nations like an overflowing stream; and you shall nurse and be carried on her arm, and dandled on her knees. CEB 13 As a mother comforts her child, so I will comfort you; in Jerusalem you will be comforted. NRS 13 As a mother comforts her child, so I will comfort you; you shall be comforted in Jerusalem. CEB 14 When you see this, your heart will rejoice; your entire being will flourish like grass. The LORD's power will be known among his servants, but his fury among his enemies. NRS 14 You shall see, and your heart shall rejoice; your bodies shall flourish like the grass; and it shall be known that the hand of the Lord is with his servants, and his indignation is against his enemies. CEB 15 The LORD will come with fire, God's chariots like a windstorm, to repay in hot anger, to rebuke with fiery flames. NRS 15 For the Lord will come in fire, and his chariots like the whirlwind, to pay back his anger in fury, and his rebuke in flames of fire. CEB 16 With fire and with sword the LORD will judge all humanity; many will be slain by the LORD. NRS 16 For by fire will the Lord execute judgment, and by his sword, on all flesh; and those slain by the Lord shall be many. CEB 17 Those who became holy and purify themselves, following their leader into the gardens, who eat pork, detestable animals, and mice, will meet their end together, says the LORD. NRS 17 Those who sanctify and purify themselves to go into the gardens, following the one in the center, eating the flesh of pigs, vermin, and rodents, shall come to an end together, says the Lord. CEB 18 Because of their actions and thoughts, I'm coming to gather all nations and cultures. They will come to see my glory. NRS 18 For I know their works and their thoughts, and I am coming to gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come and shall see my glory, CEB 19 I will put a sign on them, by sending out some of the survivors to the nations, to Tarshish, Libya, and Lydia, and to the archers of Cilicia and Greece—distant coastlands that haven't heard of my fame or seen my glory. They will declare my glory among the nations. NRS 19 and I will set a sign among them. From them I will send survivors to the nations, to Tarshish, Put, and Lud—which draw the bow—to Tubal and Javan, to the coastlands far away that have not heard of my fame or seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the nations. CEB 20 They will bring your family members from all nations as an offering to the LORD—on horses, in chariots, in wagons, on mules, and on camels—to my holy mountain Jerusalem, says the LORD, like Israelites bringing an offering in purified containers to the LORD's house. NRS 20 They shall bring all your kindred from all the nations as an offering to the Lord, on horses, and in chariots, and in litters, and on mules, and on dromedaries, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, says the Lord, just as the Israelites bring a grain offering in a clean vessel to the house of the Lord. CEB 21 I will select some of them as priests and Levites, says the LORD. NRS 21 And I will also take some of them as priests and as Levites, says the Lord. CEB 22 As the new heavens and the new earth that I'm making will endure before me, says the LORD, so your descendants and your name will endure. NRS 22 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, says the Lord; so shall your descendants and your name remain. CEB 23 From month to month and from Sabbath to Sabbath, all humanity will come to worship me, says the LORD. NRS 23 From new moon to new moon, and from sabbath to sabbath, all flesh shall come to worship before me, says the Lord. CEB 24 They will go out and see the corpses of the people who rebelled against me, where their worm never dies, where their fire is never extinguished. They will be a horror to everyone. NRS 24 And they shall go out and look at the dead bodies of the people who have rebelled against me; for their worm shall not die, their fire shall not be quenched, and they shall be an abhorrence to all flesh.
