Isaiah

Isaiah 46:11-13

11 From the east I summon a bird of prey; from a far-off land, a man to fulfill My purpose. What I have said, that I will bring about; what I have planned, that I will do. 12 Listen to Me, you stubborn-hearted, you who are now far from My righteousness. 13 I am bringing My righteousness near, it is not far away; and My salvation will not be delayed. I will grant salvation to Zion, My splendor to Israel.…

Isaiah 46:8-10

Isaiah 46:8 NIV 8 “Remember this, keep it in mind, take it to heart, you rebels. 9 Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me. 10 I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, ‘My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.’ Isaiah 46:8 YLT 8 Remember this, and…
Isaiah

Isaiah 44:19-20

19 No one stops to think, no one has the knowledge or understanding to say, “Half of it I used for fuel; I even baked bread over its coals, I roasted meat and I ate. Shall I make a detestable thing from what is left? Shall I bow down to a block of wood?” 20 Such a person feeds on ashes; a deluded heart misleads him; he cannot save himself, or say, “Is not this thing in my right hand…
Isaiah

Isaiah 42:9-11

23 Which of you will listen to this or pay close attention in time to come? 24 Who handed Jacob over to become loot, and Israel to the plunderers? Was it not the Lord, against whom we have sinned? For they would not follow His ways; they did not obey His law. 25 So He poured out on them His burning anger, the violence of war. It enveloped them in flames, yet they did not understand; it consumed them, but…
Isaiah

Isaiah 40:9-11

9 You who bring good news to Zion, go up on a high mountain. You who bring good news to Jerusalem, lift up your voice with a shout, lift it up, do not be afraid; say to the towns of Judah, “Here is your God!” 10 See, the Sovereign Lord comes with power, and He rules with a mighty arm. See, His reward is with Him, and His recompense accompanies Him. 11 He tends His flock like a shepherd: He…
Isaiah

Isaiah 35:1-4

1 The desert and the parched land will be glad; the wilderness will rejoice and blossom. Like the crocus, 2 it will burst into bloom; it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy. The glory of Lebanon will be given to it, the splendor of Carmel and Sharon; they will see the glory of the Lord, the splendor of our God. 3 Strengthen the feeble hands, steady the knees that give way; 4 say to those with fearful hearts, “Be…
Isaiah

Isaiah 32:1-6

1 See, a king will reign in righteousness and rulers will rule with justice. 2 Each one will be like a shelter from the wind and a refuge from the storm, like streams of water in the desert and the shadow of a great rock in a thirsty land. 3 Then the eyes of those who see will no longer be closed, and the ears of those who hear will listen. 4 The fearful [or rash] heart will know and…
Isaiah

Isaiah 30:29

29 You shall have a song as in the night when a holy feast is kept, and gladness of heart,as when one sets out to the sound of the flute to go to the mountain of the Lord, to the Rock of Israel. For this chapter and verse I have chosen the English Standard Version (ESV) as it has a titles for three different sections of this chapter. The title for the section where our verse of the day is…
Isaiah

Isaiah 29:13

13 The Lord says: “These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is based on merely human rules they have been taught.” The NIV gives this chapter the title of Woe to David’s City and is about the siege of Jerusalem. Beyond what is happening to David’s city is what the Lord has to say about those that worship Him in acts,…
Isaiah

Isaiah 26:7-8

7 The path of the righteous is level; You, the Upright One, make the way of the righteous smooth. 8 Yes, Lord, walking in the way of Your laws, we wait for You; Your name and renown are the desire of our hearts. Through chapter twenty-four prophecies continue, then in chapter twenty-five there is a beautiful Praise to the Lord full of promises from God and judgment against Moab. Then in chapter twenty-six a Song of Praise with instructions to…

Isaiah 21:3-4

Isaiah 21:3-4 NIV 3 At this my body is racked with pain, pangs seize me, like those of a woman in labor; I am staggered by what I hear, I am bewildered by what I see. 4 My heart falters, fear makes me tremble; the twilight I longed for has become a horror to me. Isaiah 21:3-4 ESV 3 Therefore my loins are filled with anguish; pangs have seized me, like the pangs of a woman in labor; I am…
Isaiah

Isaiah 19:10, 19-22

10 The workers in cloth will be dejected, and all the wage earners will be sick at heart. 19 In that day there will be an altar to the Lord in the heart of Egypt, and a monument to the Lord at its border. 20 It will be a sign and witness to the Lord Almighty in the land of Egypt. When they cry out to the Lord because of their oppressors, he will send them a savior and defender,…
