Text: Isaiah 49:14 to 50:11

Isaiah 49:14 But Zion said, “The LORD has forsaken me; my Lord has forgotten me.”  [15]  “Can a woman forget her nursing child, that she should have no compassion on the son of her womb? Even these may forget, yet I will not forget you.  [16]  Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are continually before me.  [17]  Your builders make haste; your destroyers and those who laid you waste go out from you.  [18]  Lift up your eyes around and see; they all gather, they come to you. As I live, declares the LORD, you shall put them all on as an ornament; you shall bind them on as a bride does.  [19]  “Surely your waste and your desolate places and your devastated land— surely now you will be too narrow for your inhabitants, and those who swallowed you up will be far away.  [20]  The children of your bereavement will yet say in your ears: ‘The place is too narrow for me; make room for me to dwell in.’  [21]  Then you will say in your heart: ‘Who has borne me these? I was bereaved and barren, exiled and put away, but who has brought up these? Behold, I was left alone; from where have these come?'”  [22]  Thus says the Lord GOD: “Behold, I will lift up my hand to the nations, and raise my signal to the peoples; and they shall bring your sons in their arms, and your daughters shall be carried on their shoulders.  [23]  Kings shall be your foster fathers, and their queens your nursing mothers. With their faces to the ground they shall bow down to you, and lick the dust of your feet. Then you will know that I am the LORD; those who wait for me shall not be put to shame.”  [24]  Can the prey be taken from the mighty, or the captives of a tyrant be rescued?  [25]  For thus says the LORD: “Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken, and the prey of the tyrant be rescued, for I will contend with those who contend with you, and I will save your children.  [26]  I will make your oppressors eat their own flesh, and they shall be drunk with their own blood as with wine. Then all flesh shall know that I am the LORD your Savior, and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.”  [50:1]  Thus says the LORD: “Where is your mother’s certificate of divorce, with which I sent her away? Or which of my creditors is it to whom I have sold you? Behold, for your iniquities you were sold, and for your transgressions your mother was sent away.  [2]  Why, when I came, was there no man; why, when I called, was there no one to answer? Is my hand shortened, that it cannot redeem? Or have I no power to deliver? Behold, by my rebuke I dry up the sea, I make the rivers a desert; their fish stink for lack of water and die of thirst.  [3]  I clothe the heavens with blackness and make sackcloth their covering.”  [4]  The Lord GOD has given me the tongue of those who are taught, that I may know how to sustain with a word him who is weary. Morning by morning he awakens; he awakens my ear to hear as those who are taught.  [5]  The Lord GOD has opened my ear, and I was not rebellious; I turned not backward.  [6]  I gave my back to those who strike, and my cheeks to those who pull out the beard; I hid not my face from disgrace and spitting.  [7]  But the Lord GOD helps me; therefore I have not been disgraced; therefore I have set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be put to shame.  [8]  He who vindicates me is near. Who will contend with me? Let us stand up together. Who is my adversary? Let him come near to me.  [9]  Behold, the Lord GOD helps me; who will declare me guilty? Behold, all of them will wear out like a garment; the moth will eat them up.  [10]  Who among you fears the LORD and obeys the voice of his servant? Let him who walks in darkness and has no light trust in the name of the LORD and rely on his God.  [11]  Behold, all you who kindle a fire, who equip yourselves with burning torches! Walk by the light of your fire, and by the torches that you have kindled! This you have from my hand: you shall lie down in torment.

Blessed be the LORD, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle;  [2]  he is my steadfast love and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield and he in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples under me.  [3]  O LORD, what is man that you regard him, or the son of man that you think of him?  [4]  Man is like a breath; his days are like a passing shadow.  [5]  Bow your heavens, O LORD, and come down! Touch the mountains so that they smoke!  [6]  Flash forth the lightning and scatter them; send out your arrows and rout them!  [7]  Stretch out your hand from on high; rescue me and deliver me from the many waters, from the hand of foreigners,  [8]  whose mouths speak lies and whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.  [9]  I will sing a new song to you, O God; upon a ten-stringed harp I will play to you,  [10]  who gives victory to kings, who rescues David his servant from the cruel sword.  [11]  Rescue me and deliver me from the hand of foreigners, whose mouths speak lies and whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood.  [12]  May our sons in their youth be like plants full grown, our daughters like corner pillars cut for the structure of a palace;  [13]  may our granaries be full, providing all kinds of produce; may our sheep bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our fields;  [14]  may our cattle be heavy with young, suffering no mishap or failure in bearing; may there be no cry of distress in our streets!  [15]  Blessed are the people to whom such blessings fall! Blessed are the people whose God is the LORD!
