Isaiah 54
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1“Sing, O barren, she [who] has not borne! Break forth with singing, and cry aloud, "" She [who] has not brought forth! For more [are] the sons of the desolate, "" Than the sons of the married one,” said YHWH.

2“Enlarge the place of your tent, "" And they stretch out the curtains of your dwelling places, "" Do not restrain—lengthen your cords, "" And make your pins strong.

3For you break forth right and left, "" And nations possess your seed,

4And they cause desolate cities to be inhabited. Do not fear, for you are not ashamed, "" Nor blush, for you are not confounded, "" For you forget the shame of your youth, "" And the reproach of your widowhood "" You do not remember anymore.

5For your Maker [is] your husband, "" YHWH of Hosts [is] His Name, "" And your Redeemer [is] the Holy One of Israel, "" He is called God of all the earth.

6For as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, "" YHWH has called you, "" Even a youthful wife when she is refused,” said your God.

7“In a small moment I have forsaken you, "" And in great mercies I gather you,

8In overflowing wrath I hid My face [for] a moment from you, "" And in perpetual kindness I have loved you, "" Said your Redeemer—YHWH!

9For this [is as] the days of Noah to Me, "" In that I have sworn that the waters of Noah "" Do not pass over the earth again—So I have sworn, "" Wrath is not on you, "" Nor rebuke against you.

10For the mountains depart, and the hills remove, "" And My kindness does not depart from you, "" And the covenant of My peace does not remove,” "" Says YHWH, your loving one.

11“O afflicted, storm-tossed, not comforted, "" Behold, I am laying your stones with cement, "" And have founded you with sapphires,

12And have made your pinnacles of agate, "" And your gates of carbuncle stones, "" And all your border of stones of delight,

13And all your sons are taught of YHWH, "" And the peace of your sons [is] abundant.

14You establish yourself in righteousness, "" Be far from oppression, for you do not fear, "" And from ruin, for it does not come near to you.

15Behold, he diligently assembles without My desire, "" Whoever has assembled near you falls by you!

16Behold, I have created an artisan, "" Blowing on a fire of coals, "" And bringing out an instrument for his work, "" And I have created a destroyer to destroy.

17No weapon formed against you prospers, "" And every tongue rising against you, "" You condemn in judgment. This [is] the inheritance of the servants of YHWH, "" And their righteousness from Me,” a declaration of YHWH!
