Isaiah 43 - KJV

God will redeem his people

1 But now thus saith the Lord ver. 7that created thee, O Jacob, ver. 21;ch. 44:2,21And he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: ch. 44:6for I have redeemed thee, ch. 42:6;& 45:4I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.

2 Ps. 66:12;& 91:3When thou passest through the waters, Deut. 31:6I will be with thee; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: When thou Dan. 3:25walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burnt; Neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

3 For I am the Lord thy God, The Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: Prov. 11:8;& 21:18I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.

4 Since thou wast precious in my sight, Thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: Therefore will I give men for thee, And people for thy [a]life.

5 ch. 41:10;& 44:2;Jer. 30:10;& 46:27,28Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, And gather thee from the west;

6 I will say to the north, Give up; And to the south, Keep not back: Bring my sons from far, And my daughters from the ends of the earth;

7 Even every one that is ch. 63:19;Jas. 2:7called by my name: For Ps. 100:3;ch. 29:23;John 3:3,5;2 Cor. 5:17;Eph. 2:10I have created him for my glory, ver. 1I have formed him; yea, I have made him.

8 ch. 6:9;& 42:19;Ezek. 12:2Bring forth the blind people that have eyes, And the deaf that have ears.

9 Let all the nations be gathered together, And let the people be assembled: ch. 41:21,22,26Who among them can declare this, And shew us former things? Let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified: Or let them hear, and say, It is truth.

10 ch. 44:8Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, ch. 55:4And my servant whom I have chosen: That ye may know and believe me, And understand that I am he: ch. 44:6Before me there was [b]no God formed, Neither shall there be after me.

11 I, even I, ch. 45:21;Hos. 13:4am the Lord; And beside me there is no saviour.

12 I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, When there was no Deut. 32:16;Ps. 81:9strange god among you: ch. 44:8Therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, that I am God.

13 Ps. 90:2;John 8:58Yea, before the day was I am he; And there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall Job 9:12;ch. 14:27[c]let it?

14 Thus saith the Lord, your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; For your sake I have sent to Babylon, And have brought down all their [d]nobles, And the Chaldeans, whose cry is in the ships.

15 I am the Lord, your Holy One, The creator of Israel, your King.

16 Thus saith the Lord, which Ex. 14:16;Ps. 77:19;ch. 51:10maketh a way in the sea, And a Josh. 3:13path in the mighty waters;

17 Which Ex. 14:4-9,25bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power; They shall lie down together, they shall not rise: They are extinct, they are quenched as tow.

18 Jer. 16:14Remember ye not the former things, Neither consider the things of old.

19 Behold, I will do a 2 Cor. 5:17;Rev. 21:5new thing; Now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? Ex. 17:6;Num. 20:11;Deut. 8:15;Ps. 78:16I will even make a way in the wilderness, And rivers in the desert.

20 The beast of the field shall honour me, The dragons and the [e][f]owls: Because ch. 48:21I give waters in the wilderness, And rivers in the desert, To give drink to my people, my chosen.

21 Ps. 102:18;Eph. 1:5,6This people have I formed for myself; They shall shew forth my praise.

Israel's sin of ingratitude

22 But thou hast not called upon me, O Jacob; But thou Mal. 1:13hast been weary of me, O Israel.

23 Amos 5:25Thou hast not brought me the [g]small cattle of thy burnt offerings; Neither hast thou honoured me with thy sacrifices. I have not caused thee to serve with an offering, Nor wearied thee with incense.

24 Thou hast bought me no sweet cane with money, Neither hast thou [h]filled me with the fat of thy sacrifices: But thou hast made me to serve with thy sins, Thou hast ch. 1:14;Mal. 2:17wearied me with thine iniquities.

25 I, even I, am he that ch. 44:22;Jer. 50:20;Acts 3:19blotteth out thy transgressions Ezek. 36:22for mine own sake, ch. 1:18;Jer. 31:34And will not remember thy sins.

26 Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: Declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.

27 Thy first father hath sinned, And thy Mal. 2:7,8[i]teachers have transgressed against me.

28 Therefore ch. 47:6;Lam. 2:2,6I have profaned the [j]princes of the sanctuary, Ps. 79:4;Jer. 24:9;Dan. 9:11;Zech. 8:13And have given Jacob to the curse, And Israel to reproaches.
