1But now, Jacob, this is the word of the LORD, the word of your Creator, of him who fashioned you, Israel: Have no fear, for I have redeemed you; I call you by name; you are mine.

2When you pass through water I shall be with you; when you pass through rivers they will not overwhelm you; walk through fire, and you will not be scorched, through flames, and they will not burn you.

3I am the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, your deliverer; I give Egypt as ransom for you, Nubia and Seba in exchange for you.

4You are more precious to me than the Assyrians; you are honoured, and I love you. I would give the Edomites in exchange for you, and any other people for your life.

5Have no fear, for I am with you; I shall bring your descendants from the east and gather you from the west.

6To the north I shall say, “Give them up,” and to the south, “Do not obstruct them. Bring my sons and daughters from afar, bring them back from the ends of the earth:

7everyone who bears my name, all whom I have created, whom I have formed, whom I have made for my glory.”

8Bring forward this people, a people who have eyes but are blind, who have ears but are deaf.

9All the nations are gathered together and the peoples assembled. Who among them can expound what has gone before or interpret this for us? Let them produce their witnesses and prove their case; let people hearing them say, “That is the truth.”

10The LORD declares, You are my witnesses, you are my servants chosen by me to know me and put your trust in me and understand that I am the Lord. Before me no god existed, nor will there be any after me.

11I am the LORD, and I alone am your deliverer.

12I have made it known; I declared it, I and no alien god among you, and you are my witnesses, says the LORD. I am God;

13from everlasting I am he. None can deliver from my hand; what I do, none can undo.

14These are the words of the LORD your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: For your sakes I shall send an army to Babylon and lay the Chaldaeans prostrate as they flee; their cry of triumph will turn to lamentation.

15Israel, I am the LORD, your Holy One, your Creator and your King.

16This is the word of the LORD, who opened a way in the sea, a path through mighty waters,

17who drew on chariot and horse to their destruction, an army in all its strength; they lay down, never to rise again; they were extinguished, snuffed out like a wick:

18Stop dwelling on past events and brooding over days gone by.

19I am about to do something new; this moment it will unfold. Can you not perceive it? Even through the wilderness I shall make a way, and paths in the barren desert.

20The wild beasts will do me honour, the wolf and the desert-owl, for I shall provide water in the wilderness and rivers in the barren desert, where my chosen people may drink,

21this people I have formed for myself, and they will proclaim my praises.

22Yet, Jacob, you did not call upon me; much less did you, Israel, weary yourself in my service.

23You did not bring me whole-offerings from your flock or honour me with your sacrifices; I did not exact grain-offerings from you or weary you with demands for frankincense.

24You did not buy me aromatic cane with your money or sate me with the fat of your sacrifices. Rather you burdened me with your sins and wearied me with your crimes.

25I am the LORD; for my own sake I wipe out your transgressions and remember your sins no more.

26Cite me to appear, let us argue it out; set forth your pleading and establish your innocence.

27Your first forefather transgressed, your spokesmen rebelled against me,

28and your leaders desecrated my sanctuary; that is why I put Jacob under solemn curse and left Israel to be reviled.
