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“Sing, barren, you who didn’t give birth;
break out into singing, and cry aloud, you who did not travail with child:
for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife,” says Yahweh.
2“Enlarge the place of your tent,
and let them stretch out the curtains of your habitations;
don’t spare: lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes.
3For you will spread out on the right hand and on the left;
and your offspring#or, seed will possess the nations,
and settle in desolate cities.
4“Don’t be afraid; for you will not be ashamed.
Don’t be confounded; for you will not be disappointed.
For you will forget the shame of your youth;
and the reproach of your widowhood you shall remember no more.
5For your Maker is your husband; Yahweh of Armies is his name.
The Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer.
He will be called the God of the whole earth.
6For Yahweh has called you as a wife forsaken and grieved in spirit,
even a wife of youth, when she is cast off,” says your God.
7“For a small moment I have forsaken you;
but with great mercies will I gather you.
8In overflowing wrath I hid my face from you for a moment;
but with everlasting loving kindness I will have mercy on you,” says Yahweh your Redeemer.
9“For this is like the waters of Noah to me;
for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah will no more go over the earth,
so I have sworn that I will not be angry with you, nor rebuke you.
10For the mountains may depart,
and the hills be removed;
but my loving kindness will not depart from you,
and my covenant of peace will not be removed,”
says Yahweh who has mercy on you.
11“You afflicted, tossed with storms, and not comforted,
behold, I will set your stones in beautiful colors,
and lay your foundations with sapphires.
12I will make your pinnacles of rubies,
your gates of sparkling jewels,
and all your walls of precious stones.
13All your children will be taught by Yahweh;
and your children’s peace will be great.
14In righteousness you will be established.
You will be far from oppression,
for you will not be afraid;
and far from terror,
for it shall not come near you.
15Behold, they may gather together, but not by me.
Whoever gathers together against you will fall because of you.
16“Behold, I have created the blacksmith who fans the coals into flame,
and forges a weapon for his work;
and I have created the destroyer to destroy.
17No weapon that is formed against you will prevail;
and you will condemn every tongue that rises against you in judgment.
This is the heritage of Yahweh’s servants,
and their righteousness is of me,” says Yahweh.
