Isaiah 46

46
XLVI
1Bel boweth down, Nebo stoopeth;
Their idols are laid upon the beasts, and upon the cattle:
What were borne by you are made into loads,
A burden to the weary beast.
2They stoop, they bow down together:
They are not able to deliver the burden;
But they themselves go into captivity.
3Hearken unto me, O house of Jacob,
And all the remnant of the house of Israel;
Ye that have been borne by me from the belly,
That have been carried from the womb.
4And even to your old age, I am the same;
And even to your gray hairs, I will carry you:
I have made, arid I will bear;
Even I will carry, and will deliver you.
5To whom will ye liken me, and equal me?
And to whom will ye compare me, that we may be like?
6They lavish gold out of the bag,
And weigh silver in the balance;
They hire a goldsmith, and he maketh it a god:
They fall down; yea, they worship him.
7They bear him upon the shoulder; they carry him about;
They set him down in his place, and he standeth:
From his place shall he not remove;
Yea, one shall cry unto him, but he will not answer;
Nor save him from his trouble.
8Remember this, and shew yourselves men:
Bring it again to mind, O ye transgressors.
9Remember the former things, of old time:
For I am God, arid there is none else;
I am God, and there is none like me:
10Declaring the end from the beginning,
And from ancient times, the things that are not yet done;
Saying: My counsel shall stand:
And I will do all my pleasure:
11Calling a ravenous bird from the east,
And the man of my counsel from a far country:
Yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass;
I have purposed it; I will also do it.
12Hearken unto me, ye stubborn in heart,
Ye that are far from righteousness:
13I will bring near my righteousness; it shall not be far off;
And my salvation shall not tarry:
I will place salvation in Zion,
For Israel my glory.

Yeshayah (Isaiah) 46

46
1Bĕl has bowed down, Neḇo is stooping, their idols were on the beasts and on the cattle. That which is carried is burdensome, a burden to the weary.
2They have stooped, they have bowed down together, they were unable to deliver the burden, but they themselves went into captivity.
3“Listen to Me, O house of Ya‛aqoḇ, and all the remnant of the house of Yisra’ĕl, who are borne from the belly, who are carried from the womb:
4even to your old age, I am He, and even to grey hairs I carry! I have made and I bear, and I carry and rescue.
5“To whom do you liken Me, and compare Me and make Me similar, that we should be alike?
6“They pour gold out of the bag, and weigh silver on the scale. They hire a goldsmith, and he makes it a mighty one. They fall down, they also bow themselves.
7“They bear it on the shoulder, they carry it and set it in its place, and it stands – from its place it does not move. Though one cries out to it, it does not answer, nor save him from his distress.
8“Remember this, and show yourselves men; turn it back, you transgressors.
9“Remember the former events of old, for I am Ěl, and there is no one else – Elohim, and there is no one like Me,
10declaring the end from the beginning, and from of old that which has not yet been done, saying, ‘My counsel does stand, and all My delight I do,’
11calling a bird of prey from the east, the man who executes My counsel, from a distant land. Indeed I have spoken it, I also bring it to pass. I have planned it, I also do it.
12“Listen to Me, you stubborn-hearted, who are far from righteousness:
13“I shall bring My righteousness near, it is not far off, and My deliverance, it is not delayed. And I shall give deliverance in Tsiyon, My esteem to Yisra’ĕl.
