1 God's blessings upon the nation
3 For I will ch. 35:7;Joel 2:28;John 7:38;Acts 2:18pour water upon him that is thirsty, 3 And floods upon the dry ground: 3 I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, 3 And my blessing upon thine offspring:
6 Judgment upon idol worship
7 And ch. 41:4,22who, as I, shall call, 7 And shall declare it, and set it in order for me, 7 Since I appointed the ancient people? 7 And the things that are coming, and shall come, let them shew unto them.
8 Fear ye not, neither be afraid: 8 ch. 41:22Have not I told thee from that time, 8 And have declared it? ch. 43:10ye are even my witnesses. 8 Is there a God besides me? 8 Yea, Deut. 4:35;& 32:39;1 Sam. 2:2;2 Sam. 22:32there is no [a]God; I know not any.
9 ch. 41:24They that make a graven image are all of them vanity; 9 And their [b]delectable things shall not profit; 9 And they are their own witnesses; 9 Ps. 115:4They see not, nor know; that they may be ashamed.
11 Behold, all his fellows shall be Ps. 97:7;ch. 1:29;& 42:17ashamed: 11 And the workmen, they are of men: 11 Let them all be gathered together, let them stand up; 11 Yet they shall fear, and they shall be ashamed together.
12 ch. 40:19;Jer. 10:3The smith [c]with the tongs both worketh in the coals, 12 And fashioneth it with hammers, 12 And worketh it with the strength of his arms: 12 Yea, he is hungry, and his strength faileth: 12 He drinketh no water, and is faint.
13 The carpenter stretcheth out his rule; he marketh it out with a line; 13 He fitteth it with planes, and he marketh it out with the compass, 13 And maketh it after the figure of a man, according to the beauty of a man; 13 That it may remain in the house.
15 Then shall it be for a man to burn: 15 For he will take thereof, and warm himself; 15 Yea, he kindleth it, and baketh bread; 15 Yea, he maketh a god, and worshippeth it; 15 He maketh it a graven image, and falleth down thereto.
19 And none ch. 46:8[f]considereth in his heart, 19 Neither is there knowledge nor understanding to say, 19 I have burnt part of it in the fire; 19 Yea, also I have baked bread upon the coals thereof; 19 I have roasted flesh, and eaten it: 19 And shall I make the residue thereof an abomination? 19 Shall I fall down to [g]the stock of a tree?
23 Ps. 69:34;ch. 42:10;& 49:13;Jer. 51:48;Rev. 18:20Sing, O ye heavens; for the Lord hath done it: 23 Shout, ye lower parts of the earth: 23 Break forth into singing, ye mountains, 23 O forest, and every tree therein: 23 For the Lord hath redeemed Jacob, 23 And glorified himself in Israel.
24 Cyrus to restore Jerusalem
24 Thus saith the Lord, ch. 43:14thy redeemer, 24 And ch. 43:1he that formed thee from the womb, 24 I am the Lord that maketh all things; 24 Job 9:8That stretcheth forth the heavens alone; 24 That spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;
26 Zech. 1:6That confirmeth the word of his servant, 26 And performeth the counsel of his messengers; 26 That saith to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be inhabited; 26 And to the cities of Judah, Ye shall be built, 26 And I will raise up the [h]decayed places thereof:
28 That saith of Cyrus, He is my shepherd, 28 And shall perform all my pleasure: 28 Even saying to Jerusalem, 2 Chr. 36:22;Ezra 1:1;ch. 45:13Thou shalt be built; 28 And to the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid.
