Isaiah 54

54
LIV
1Shout for joy, O barren, thou that didst not bear;
Break forth into singing, and shout, thou that didst not travail:
For more are the children of the desolate,
Than the children of the married wife, saith Jehovah.
2Enlarge the place of thy tent;
And let the curtains of thine habitations be extended; spare not:
Lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes.
3For thou shalt break forth on the right hand, and on the left;
And thy seed shall inherit the nations,
And make the desolate cities to be inhabited.
4Fear not, for thou shalt not be ashamed;
Neither be thou confounded, for thou shalt not be put to shame:
For thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth,
And the reproach of thy widowhood thou shalt remember no more.
5For thy Maker is thine husband,
Jehovah of hosts is his name;
And thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel:
The God of the whole earth shall He be called.
6For Jehovah hath called thee as a woman forsaken, and grieved in spirit;
And as a wife of youth, when she was rejected, saith thy God.
7For a short moment have I forsaken thee;
But with great mercies will I gather thee.
8In vehemence of wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment;
But with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee,
Saith thy Redeemer, Jehovah.
9For this is as the waters of Noah unto me,
When I sware that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth;
So have I sworn that I will not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee.
10For the mountains shall depart,
And the hills be removed;
But my kindness shall not depart from thee,
Neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed;
Saith Jehovah, who hath mercy on thee.
11O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted,
Behold! I will lay thy stones in cement of brilliant colour,
And lay thy foundations with sapphires.
12And I will make thy battlements of rubies,
And thy gates of carbuncles;
And all thy borders of precious stones.
13And all thy children shall be taught by Jehovah,
And great shall be the peace of thy children.
14In righteousness shalt thou be established:
Be thou far from oppression, for thou shalt not fear;
And from terror, for it shall not come near thee.
15Behold! they shall assemble together, but not by me;
Whosoever shall have assembled together against thee, shall come over to thy side.
16Behold! I created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire,
And that bringeth forth instruments for his work;
I also created the destroyer to lay waste.
17No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper;
And every tongue that riseth up against thee in judgment, thou shalt prove guilty.
This is the heritage of the servants of Jehovah,
And their righteousness is from me, saith Jehovah.

Isaiah 54

54
1 # Gal 4.27. “Sing, O barren one, who did not bear;
break forth into singing and cry aloud,
you who have not been in travail!
For the children of the desolate one will be more
than the children of her that is married, says the Lord.
2Enlarge the place of your tent,
and let the curtains of your habitations be stretched out;
hold not back, lengthen your cords
and strengthen your stakes.
3For you will spread abroad to the right and to the left,
and your descendants will possess the nations
and will people the desolate cities.
4“Fear not, for you will not be ashamed;
be not confounded, for you will not be put to shame;
for you will forget the shame of your youth,
and the reproach of your widowhood you will remember no more.
5For your Maker is your husband,
the Lord of hosts is his name;
and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer,
the God of the whole earth he is called.
6For the Lord has called you
like a wife forsaken and grieved in spirit,
like a wife of youth when she is cast off,
says your God.
7For a brief moment I forsook you,
but with great compassion I will gather you.
8In overflowing wrath for a moment
I hid my face from you,
but with everlasting love I will have compassion on you,
says the Lord, your Redeemer.
9“For this is like the days of Noah to me:
as I swore that the waters of Noah
should no more go over the earth,
so I have sworn that I will not be angry with you
and will not rebuke you.
10For the mountains may depart
and the hills be removed,
but my steadfast love shall not depart from you,
and my covenant of peace shall not be removed,
says the Lord, who has compassion on you.
11 # Rev 21.19. “O afflicted one, storm-tossed, and not comforted,
behold, I will set your stones in antimony,
and lay your foundations with sapphires.#54.11 Or lapis lazuli
12I will make your pinnacles of agate,
your gates of carbuncles,
and all your wall of precious stones.
13 # Jn 6.45. All your sons shall be taught by the Lord,
and great shall be the prosperity of your sons.
14In righteousness you shall be established;
you shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear;
and from terror, for it shall not come near you.
15If any one stirs up strife,
it is not from me;
whoever stirs up strife with you
shall fall because of you.
16Behold, I have created the smith
who blows the fire of coals,
and produces a weapon for its purpose.
I have also created the ravager to destroy;
17no weapon that is fashioned against you shall prosper,
and you shall confute every tongue that rises against you in judgment.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord
and their vindication from me, says the Lord.”
