Chapter 46

1

 Bel boweth down, Nebo stoopeth; their idols are upon the beasts, and upon the cattle: the things that ye carried about are made a load, a burden to the weary [beast]. 


2

 They stoop, they bow down together; they could not deliver the burden, but themselves are gone into captivity. 


3

 Hearken unto me, O house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel, that have been borne [by me] from their birth, that have been carried from the womb; 


4

 and even to old age I am he, and even to hoar hairs will I carry [you]; I have made, and I will bear; yea, I will carry, and will deliver. 


5

 To whom will ye like me, and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be like? 


6

 Such as 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. 


7

 They bear it upon the shoulder, they carry it, and set it in its place, and it standeth, from its place shall it not remove: yea, one may cry unto it, yet can it not answer, nor save him out of his trouble. 


8

 Remember this, and show yourselves men; bring it again to mind, O ye transgressors. 


9

 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; [I am] God, and there is none like me; 


10

 declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not [yet] done; saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure; 


11

 calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man of my counsel from a far country; yea, I have spoken, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed, I will also do it. 


12

 Hearken unto me, ye stout-hearted, that are far from righteousness: 


13

 I bring near my righteousness, it shall not be far off, and my salvation shall not tarry; and I will place salvation in Zion for Israel my glory. 


Isaiah 47
