Chapter 45

      Thus saith the Lord unto Cyrus his anointed, whom he leadeth by the right hand: that the people may fall down before him: I will loose the girdle of kings: that they shall open *the gates before thy face, and not to shut their doors. I will go before thee, and make the crooked straight. I shall break the brazen doors, and burst the iron bars. I shall give thee the hid treasure and the thing that is secretly kept: that thou mayest know, that I the God of Israel have called thee by thy name: and that for Jacob my servants sake, and for Israel my chosen. For I called thee by name, and *ordened thee or ever thou knewest me: Even I the Lord, before whom there is none other: for without me there is no God. I have prepared thee or ever thou knowest me: that it might be known from the rising of the sun to the going down of the same, that all is nothing without me. For I am the Lord, and there is else none. It is I that created the light, and darkness, I make peace, and trouble: yee even I the Lord do all these things. The heavens above shall drop down, and the clouds shall rain righteousness. The earth shall open itself, and bring forth health, and thereby shall righteousness flourish. Even I the Lord shall bring it to pass.
      Woe be unto him that *chideth with his maker, the potsherd with the potter: Sayeth the clay to the potter: What makest thou? or thy work serveth for nothing? Woe be unto him, that saith to his father: Why begettest thou? And to his mother: Why bearest thou? Thus saith the Lord, even the holy one and maker of Israel: Ask me of things for to come, concerning my sons: and put me in remembrance, as touching the works of my hands: I have made the earth, and created man upon it. With my hands have I spread forth heaven, and given a commandment for all the Host thereof. I shall wake him up with righteousness, and order all his ways. He shall build my city, and let out my prisoners: and that for neither gifts or rewards, saith the Lord of Hosts.
      The Lord hath said moreover: The occupiers of Egypt, the merchants of the *Morains and Sabees, shall come unto thee with tribute, they shall be thine, they shall follow thee, and go with chains upon their feet. They shall fall down before thee, and make supplication unto thee. For God ( without whom there is none other God ) shall be with thee. O how profound art thou O' God, thou God and Saviour of Israel? Confounded be ye, and put to dishonor: go hence together with shame, all ye that be workmasters of error: ( that is worshipers of Idols ) But Israel shall be saved in the Lord, which is the everlasting salvation: They shall not come to shame or confusion, world without end.
      For thus saith the Lord: even he that created heaven, the God that made the earth, that fashioned it, and set it forth: I have not made it for naught, but I made it to be inhabited. Even I the Lord, without whom there is none other. I have not spoken secretly, neither in dark places of the earth. It is not for naught, that I said unto the seed of Jacob: Seek me. I am the Lord, which when I speak, declareth the thing that is righteousness and true. Let them be gathered, and come together, let them draw nye hither, that are escaped of the people: Have they any understanding, that set up the stocks of their Idols, and praise unto a God, that cannot help them? Let men draw nye, let them come hither, and ask counsel of one another, and show forth: What is he, that told this before? or, who spake of it, ever since the beginning? Have not I the Lord done it: without whom there is none other God? the true God and Saviour, and there is else none but I : And therefore turn you unto me ( all ye ends of the earth ) so shall ye be saved, for I am God, and there is else none. I swear by myself: out of my mouth cometh the word of righteousness, and that may no man turn: but all knees shall bow unto me, and all tongues shall swear by me, saying: Verily in the Lord is my righteousness and strength. To him shall men come: but all they that think scorn of him, shall be confounded. And the whole seed of Israel shall be justified, and praised in the Lord.

Chapter 46

      Nevertheless, *Bel shall fall, and *Nebo shall be broken: whose images are a burden for the beasts and cattle, to overladen them, and to make them weary. They shall sink down, and fall together: for they may not ease them of their burden, therefore must they go into captivity.
      Hearken unto me, O house of *Jacob, and ye that remain yet of the household of Israel: whom I have borne from your mothers womb, and brought you up from your birth, till ye were grown: I, I which shall bear you unto your last age: I have made you, I will also nourish you, bear you and save you. Whom will ye make me like, in fashion or image, that I may be like him? Ye fools (no doubt ) will take out silver and gold out of your purses, and weigh it, and hire a goldsmith to make a God of it, that men may kneel down and worship it. Yet must he be taken on mens shoulders and borne, and set in his place, that he may stand and not move. Alas that men should cry unto him, which giveth no answer: and delivereth not the man that calleth upon him, from his trouble.
      Consider this well, and be ashamed. Go into your own selves (O ye renegades) Remember the things which are past, since the beginning of the world: that I am God, and that there is else no God, yee and that there is nothing like unto me. In the beginning of a thing, I show the end thereof: and I tell before, things that are not yet come to pass. With one word is my devise accomplished, and fulfilleth all my pleasure. I call a bird out of the East, and all that I take in hand, out of far countries, as soon as I command, I bring it hither: as soon as I think to devise a thing, I do it.
      Hear me, O ye that are of an high stomach, but far from righteousness, I shall bring forth my righteousness. It is not far, and my health shall not tarry long away. I will lay health in Sion, and give Israel my glory.


*Bel shall fall, (kjv and other bibles of man = boweth down) and *Nebo shall be broken: (kjv and other bibles of man = stoopeth) *Bel = "lord" a chief Babylonian deity, MAN as Lord , owner, husband , have, master, man given, adversary, archers, babbler, citizens, inhabitants ) rulers, lords, (noun of relationship used to characterize - ie, master of dreams) lord (used of foreign gods) Nebo = "prophet" of : of the Baal :who presided over learning and writings of the Greek Hermes, Latin Mercury, and Egyptian Thoth *(the mountain where Moses died) all from the Hebrew..RN
      Jacob = "heel holder" or "supplanter" `aqab {aw-kab}a primitive root; - supplant take by the heel, stay, utterly, circumvent, follow at the heel, assail insidiously, overreach, attack at the heel , to hold back`athar {aw-thawr}from -thick, suppliants )worshipper, odor, incense (odoriferous smoke)`athar {aw-thar} a primitive root; - deceitful, multiplied, to be abundant, to be plentiful, to multiply, become abundant . from the Hebrew.

Chapter 47

      But as for thee ( O daughter thou virgin Babylon ) Thou shalt sit in the dust thou shall sit upon the ground, and not in a throne, ( O thou maiden of Chaldea ) Thou shalt no more be called tender and pleasant. Thou shalt bring forth that *querne and grind meal, put down thy stomacher make bear thy knees, and shalt wade through the water rivers. Thy shame shall be discovered, and thy *previties shall be seen. For I will avenge me of thee, and no man shall let me: sayeth our redeemer, which is called the Lord of Hosts, the holy one of Israel.
      Sit still, hold thy tongue, and get thee into some dark corner, O daughter Chaldea, for thou shalt no more be called lady of kingdoms. I was so wroth with my people, that I *punished mine inheritance, and give them into thy power. Nevertheless, thou showiest them no mercy, but even the very aged men of them, didest thou oppress right sore with thy yoke, and thou thoughtest thus. I shall be lady for ever. And beside all that, thou hast not regarded these things, neither cast, (camest) what should come after. Hear now therefore, thou willful, that sittest so careless, and speakest it thus in thine heart: I am alone, and without me is there none: *I shall never be widow, ner desolate again. And yet both these things shall come to thee upon one day in the twinkling of an eye: Namely widowhood, and desolation. They shall mightily fall upon thee, for the multitude of thy *witches, and for the great heap of thy *conjurers. For thou hast comforted thyself in deceitfulness, and hast said: No man seeth me. Thy own wisdom and conning has deceived thee. In that thou hast said: I am alone, and without me there is none. Therefore shall trouble come upon thee, and thou shall not know, from whence it shall arise. Mischief shall fall upon thee, which thou shalt not be able to put off. A sudden misery shall come upon thee, or ever thou be aware.
      Now go to thy conjurers, and to the multitude of thy witches ( whom thou hast been acquainted withal from thy youth ) if they may help thee, or strengthen thee. Thou hast hither to had many counsels of them, so let the heaven gazers and the beholders of stars come on now and deliver thee: yee and let them show, when these new things shall come upon thee. Behold, they shall be like straw, which if it be kindled with fire, no man may rid it for the vehemence of the flame: And yet it giveth no cinders to warm a man by, ner clear fire to sit by. Even so shall they be unto thee whom thou hast used and occupied from thy youth. Every one shall show thee his erroneous way, yet shall none of them defend thee.

*querne = hand held grain mill. *previties = secrets held between people, to cover up something . Not "private parts" as we have been told, see Genesis 3:11, when God asked Adam, "who told thee that thou wast naked" *punished mine inheritance, (kjv and other bibles of man = polluted ) *I shall never be a widow; see Apocalypse 18. Look to the Hebrew root words for the revealing definitions of witches and conjurers. RN



Chapter 48

      Hear this, O thou house of Jacob: ye that are called by the name of Israel, and are come out of one stock with Judah: which swear by the name of the Lord, and bear witness by the God of Israel ( but not with truth and right ) which are called free men of the holy city, as they that look for comfort in the God of Israel, whos name is the Lord of Hosts.
      The things that I showed you ever since the beginning: Have I not brought them to pass, immediately as they came out of my mouth, and declared them? And they are come? Howbeit I know that thou art obstinate, and that thy neck hath a iron vein, and thy brow is of brass. Nevertheless, I have ever since the beginning showed thee of things for to come, and declared them unto thee, or ever they came to pass: that thou shouldest not say: mine Idol hath done it, my carved or cast image hath showed it: Hear and consider all these things whether it was ye that prophesied them: But as for me, I told thee before at the beginning, new and secrete things that thou knewest not of: And some done now not of old time, whereof thou never heardest, before they were brought to pass: that thou can not say: I knew of them. Moreover there be some whereof thou hast neither heard nor known, neither have they been open unto thy ears afore time. For I know that thou wouldest maliciously offend, therefore I have called thee a transgressor, even from thy mothers womb.
      Nevertheless for my names sake, I have withdrawn my wrath, and for mine honors sake I have over seen thee, so that I have not rooted the out. Behold, I have purged thee, and not for money. I have chosen thee in the fire of poverty, And that only for mine own sake, for I gave mine honor to none other, that thou shouldest not despise me. Hearken unto me O Jacob, and Israel whom I have called. I am even he that is, I am the first and the last. My hand is the foundation of the earth, and my right hand spanneth over the heavens. As soon as I called them they were there. Gather you all together, and hearken: Which of yonder gods hath declared this, that the Lord will do by the king of Babylon ( whom he loveth and favoreth ) and by the Chaldees his arm? I myself alone have told you this before. Yee I shall call him and bring him forth, and give him a prosperous journey. Come nye and hear this: have I spoken anything darkly since the beginning? when a thing begineth, I am there.
      Wherefore the Lord God with his spirit hath sent me, And thus saith the Lord God thy avenger, the holy one of Israel: I am the Lord thy God, which teach thee profitable things, and lead thee the way, that thou shouldest go. If thou wilt now regard my commandment, thy wealthiness shall be as the water stream: and thy righteousness as the waves flowing in the sea. Thy seed shall be as the sand of the sea, and the fruit of thy body, like the gravel stones thereof: Thy name shall not be rooted out, nor destroyed before me. Ye shall go away from Babylon, and escape the Chaldees with a merry voice. This shall be spoken of, declared abroad, and go forth unto the end of the world: so that it shall be said: The Lord hath defended his servant Jacob, that they suffered no thirst, when they travailed in the wilderness. He clave the rocks a sunder, and the water gushed out. As for the ungodly, they have no peace, saith the Lord.



Chapter 49

      Ye Isles, hearken unto me, and take heed ye people from far: The Lord hath called me from my birth, and made mention of my name from my mothers womb: he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword, under the shadow of his hand hath he defended me, and hid me in his quiver, as a good arrow, and said unto me: Thou art my servant Israel, I will be honored in thee. Then answered I: I shall lese my labor, I shall spend my strength in vain. Nevertheless, I will commit my cause and my work unto the Lord my God. And now saith the Lord, even he that fashioned me from my mothers womb to be his servant, that I may bring Jacob again unto him: Howbeit, Israel shall not be not gathered unto him again. In whose sight I am great, which also is my Lord, my God and my strength. Let it be but a small thing, that thou art my servant, to set up the kindreds of Jacob, and to restore the destruction of Israel: If I make thee not also the light of the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my health unto the end of the world.
      Moreover, thus saith the Lord the *avenger and holy one of Israel, because of the abhorring and despising among the Gentiles, concerning the servant of all them that bear rule: Kings and princes shall see, and arise and worship, because of the Lord that he is faithful: and because of the holy one of Israel, which hath chosen thee.
      And thus saith the Lord: In the time appointed will I be present with thee. And in the hour of health will I help thee, and deliver thee. I will make thee a pledge for the people, so that thou shalt help up the earth again, and challenge again the scattered heritages: That thou mayest say to the prisoners: go forth, and to them that are in darkness: come into the light, that they may feed in the high ways, and get their living in all places. There shall neither hunger nor thirst, heat nor Sun hurt them. For he that favoreth them shall lead them, and give them drink of the spring wells. I will make ways upon all my mountains, and my foot paths shall be exalted. And behold, they shall come from far: lo, some from the north and west, some from the *south. Rejoice ye heavens, and sing praises thou earth: Talk of joy ye hills, for God will comfort his people, and have mercy upon his, that be in trouble.
      Then shall Sion say: God hath forsaken me, and the Lord hath forgotten me. Doth a wife forget the child of her womb, and the son who she hath born? And though she forget, yet will not I forget thee. Behold, I have written thee up upon my hands, thy walls are ever in my sight. They that have broken thee down, shall make haste to build thee up again: and they that made thee waste shall dwell in thee. Lift up thine eyes, and look about thee: all these shall gather them together, and come to thee. As truly as I live ( saith the Lord ) thou shalt put them all upon thee, as an apparel, and gird them to thee, as an bride doth her jewels. As for thy land that layeth desolate, wasted and destroyed: it shall be too narrow for them, that shall dwell in it. And they that would devour thee, shall be far away. Then the child whom the barren shall bring forth unto thee, shall say in thine ear: This place is too narrow, sit near together, that I may have some room. Then shall thou think to thyself: Who hath begotten me these? seeing I am barren and alone, a captive and an out cast? And who hath nourished them up for me? I am desolate and alone, but from whence come these?
      And therefore thus saith the Lord God: Behold, I will stretch out mine hand to the Gentiles, and set up my token to the people. They shall bring thy sons in their laps, and carry thy daughters unto thee upon their shoulders. For kings shall be thy nursing fathers, and Queens shall be thy nursing mothers. They shall fall before thee with their faces flat upon the earth, and lick up the dust of thy feet: that thou mayest know, how that I am the Lord. And who so putteth his trust in me, shall not be confounded. Who so spoileth the giant of his *praye ? or who taketh the prisoners from the mighty? And therefore thus saith the Lord: The prisoners shall be taken from the giant, and the spoil delivered from the violent: for I will magnify thy cause against thine adversaries, and save thy sons. And feed thine enemies with their own flesh, and make them drink of their own blood, as of sweet wine. And all flesh shall know ( O Jacob ) that I am the Lord thy Saviour, a strong avenger.


the Lord the *avenger (kjv and other bibles of man = Redeemer)
some from the *south. (kjv and other bibles of man = land of Sinim)
the giant of his praye ( prey ) ? exact spelling.



Chapter 50 

     Thus saith the Lord, Where is the bill of your mothers divorcement, that I sent unto her or who is the usurer, whom I sold you to? Behold, for your own offenses are ye sold: and because of your transgression, is your mother forsaken. For why would no man receive me, when I came? and when I called, no man gave me answer. Was my hand clean smitten off, that it might not help? or had I not power to deliver? Lo, at a word I drank up the sea, and of water floods I make dry land: so that for want of water, the fish corrupt and die of thirst. As for heaven, I clothe it with darkness, and put a sack upon it.
      The Lord God hath given me a well learned tongue, so that I can comfort them which are troubled, yee and that in due season. He waked mine ear up by times in the morning ( as schoolmasters do ) that I might *herk. The Lord God hath opened mine ear, therefore can I not say nay, ner withdraw myself, but I offer my back unto the smiters, and my cheeks to the nippers. I turn not my face from shame and spitting, for the Lord God hath helped me, therefore shall I not be confounded. I have hardened my face like a flint stone, for I am sure, that i shall not come to confusion. Mine advocate speaketh for me, who will then go with me to the law? Let us stand one against another: if there be any that will reason with me, let him come here forth to me. Behold, the Lord God standeth by me, what is he that can condemn me? Lo, they shall be all like as an old cloth which moths shall eat up.
      Therefore who so feareth the Lord among you, let him hear the voice of his servant. Who so walketh in darkness, and no light shineth upon him, let him hope in the Lord and hold him by his God. But take heed, ye have all kindled a fire, and girded yourselves with the flame: Ye walk in the glistering of your own fire, and in the flame that ye have kindled. This cometh unto you from my hand, namely that ye shall sleep in sorrow.


*herk (hearken)



Chapter 51

      Hearken to me, ye that hold of righteousness, ye that seek the Lord: Take heed unto the stone, whereout ye are hewn, and to the grave whereout ye are digged. Consider Abraham your father, and Sara that bare you: how that I called him alone, and prospered him well, and increased him: how the Lord comforted Sion, and repaired all her decay: making her desert as a Paradise, and making her wilderness as the garden of the Lord. Mirth and joy was there, thanksgiving, and the voice of praise. Have respect unto me then, O my people, and lay thine ear to me: for a law and an ordinance shall go from me, to lighten the Gentiles. It is hard by, that my health and my righteousness shall go forth, and the people shall be ordered with mine arm.
      The Islands ( that is the Gentiles ) shall hope in me, and put their trust in mine arm. Lift up your eyes toward heaven, and look upon the earth beneath. For the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall tear like a cloth, and they that dwell therein, shall perish in like manner. But my health endureth for ever, and my righteousness shall not cease. Therefore hearken unto me, ye that have pleasure in righteousness, thou people that bearest my law in their heart. Fear not the curse of men, be not afraid of their blasphemes and revilings: For the worms and moth shall eat them up like cloth and wool. But my righteousness shall endure for ever, and my saving health from generation to generation. Wake up, wake up, and be strong: O thou arm of the Lord: wake up, like as in times past, ever and since the world began.
      Art thou not *he, that hast wounded that proud lucifer, and hewn the dragon in pieces? Art not thou even he, which hath dried up the deep of the sea, which hast made plain the sea ground, that the delivered might go through? That the redeemed of the Lord, which turned again, might come with joy unto Sion, there to endure for ever? That mirth and gladness might be with them: that sorrow and woe might flee from them? Yee I, I am even he, that in all things giveth you consolation. What art thou then, that fearest a mortal man, the child of man, which goeth away as doeth the flower? And forgetest the Lord that made thee, that spread out the heavens, and laid the foundation of the earth. But thou art ever afraid for the sight of thine oppressor, which is ready to do harm: Where is the wrath of the oppressor? It cometh on fast, it maketh hast to appear: It shall not perish, that it should not be able to destroy, neither shall it fail for fault of nourishing. I am the Lord thy God, that make the sea to be still, and to rage: whose name is the Lord of Hosts. I shall put my word in thy mouth, and defend thee with the turning of my hand: that thou mayest plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Sion: Thou art my people.
      Awake, awake, and stand up, O Jerusalem, thou that from the hand of the Lord, hast drunken out the cup of his wrath: thou that hast supped of, and sucked out the slumbering cup to the bottom. For among all the sons whom thou hast begotten, there is not one that may hold thee up: and not one to lead thee by the hand, of all the sons that thou hast nourished. Both these things are happened unto thee, but who is sorry for it. Yee, destruction, wasting, hunger and sword: but who hath comforted thee? Thy sons lie comfortless at the head of every street like a taken *venison, and are full of that terrible wrath of the Lord, and punishment of thy God. And therefore thou miserable and drunken ( howbeit not with wine ) Hear this: Thus saith thy Lord: thy Lord and God, the defender of his people: Behold, I will take the slumbering cup out of thy hand, even the cup with the dregs of my wrath: that from henceforth thou shalt never drink it any more, and will put it in their hand they that trouble thee: which have spoken to thy soul: stoop down, that we may go over thee: make thy body even with the ground, and as the street to go upon.


Art thou not *he, that hast wounded that proud lucifer, and hewn the dragon in pieces? (kjv and other bibles of man =leave out this entire line) *venison = game meat, this is to say, these sons feel like they are the "game meat" of the oppressors as prey of the powerfull. RN



Chapter 52

      Up Sion up, take thy strength unto thee: put on thy honest raiment O Jerusalem, thou city of the holy one. For from this time forth, there shall no uncircumcised ner unclean person come in thee. Shake thee from the dust, arise and stand up, O Jerusalem. Pluck out thy neck from the bond, O thou captive daughter Sion. For thus saith the Lord: Ye are sold for nought, therefore shall ye be redeemed also without any money.
      For thus hath the Lord said: My people went down aforetime into Egypt, there to be strangers. Afterward did the king of the Assyrians oppress them, for naught. And now what profit is it to me ( saith the Lord ) that my people is freely carried away, and brought into heaviness by their rulers, and my name ever still blasphemed? Sayeth the Lord. But that my people may know my name, I myself shall speak in that day. Behold, here am I. O how beautiful are the feet of the Embassador, that bringeth the message from the mountain, and proclaimeth peace: That bringeth the good tidings, and preacheth health, and saith unto Sion: Thy God is the king. Thy watchmen shall lift up their voice, with loud voice shall they preach of him: for they shall see him present, when the Lord shall come again to Sion.
      Be glad, O thou desolate Jerusalem, and rejoice together: for the Lord will comfort his people, he will deliver Jerusalem. The Lord will make bare his holy arm, and show it forth in the sight of all the Gentiles, and all the ends of the earth shall see the saving health of our God. Away, away, get you out from thence and touch no unclean thing. Go out from among such. And be clean ye that bear the vessel of the Lord. But ye shall not go out with *sedition nor make hast as they that flee away: for the Lord shall go before you, and the God of Israel shall keep the watch.
      Behold, my servant shall deal wisely, therefore he shall be magnified, exalted and greatly honored. Like as the multitude shall wonder upon him, because his face shall be so deformed and no a mans face, and his beauty like no man: Even so shall the multitude of the Gentiles look unto him, and the kings shall shut their mouths before him. For they that have not been told of him, shall see him, and they that heard nothing of him, shall behold him.


*sedition (revolt)
