YESHAYAHU (Isaiah) 40:27  - 41:16

27  Why do you say, O Yaʽaqoḇ, and speak, O Yisra'ĕl, "My way is hidden from יהוה, and my rights are overlooked by my Elohim"?

28  Did you not know? Have you not heard? The everlasting Elohim, יהוה, the Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable.

29  He gives power to the faint, and to those who have no might He increases strength.

30  Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men stumble and fall,

31  but those who wait on יהוה renew their strength, they raise up the wing like eagles, they run and are not weary, they walk and do not faint.

Yeshayahu 41

1  "Be silent before Me, you coastlands, and let peoples renew their power! Let them come near, then let them speak. Let us come together for Right-Ruling.

2  "Who raised up the righteous one from the east, called him to His foot, gave the nations before him, and made sovereigns submit to him? He gave them as the dust to his sword, as driven stubble to his bow.

3  "He pursued them, passed over in safety, by a path that he had not gone with his feet.

4  "Who has performed and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? ‘I, יהוה, am the first, and even the last I am He.' "

5  Coastlands see it and fear, the ends of the earth are afraid - they draw near and come.

6  Everyone helps his neighbour, and says to his brother, "Be strong!"

7  And the craftsman encourages the goldsmith. He who smooths with the hammer inspires him who strikes the anvil, saying of the joining, "It is good." And he fastens it with nails, so it does not totter.

8  "But you, Yisra'ĕl, are My servant, Yaʽaqoḇ, whom I have chosen, the descendants of Aḇraham whom I love,

9  whom I have strengthened from the ends of the earth, and called from its farthest parts, and said to You, ‘You are My servant, I have chosen you and have not rejected you.

10  ‘Do not fear, for I am with you. Do not look around, for I am your Elohim. I shall strengthen you, I shall also help you, I shall also uphold you with the right hand of My righteousness.'

11  "See, all those who raged against you are ashamed and blush, they are as naught. And the men who strive with you perish.

12  "You seek them but do not find them, those who struggle with you. Those who fight you are as naught, as less than naught.

13  "For I, יהוה your Elohim, am holding your right hand, saying to you, ‘Do not fear, I shall help you.'

14  "Do not fear, you worm Yaʽaqoḇ, you men of Yisra'ĕl! I shall help you," declares יהוה and your Redeemer, the Qadosh One of Yisra'ĕl.

15  "See, I shall make you into a new threshing sledge with sharp teeth, let you thresh mountains and beat them small, and make hills like chaff.

16  "You winnow them, the wind lifts them up, and the whirlwind scatters them; but you, you rejoice in יהוה, and boast in the Qadosh One of Yisra'ĕl.
