Isaiah 41 - Versions
Isaiah 41 Text (WEB)
  1. "Keep silent before me, islands, and let the peoples renew their strength. Let them come near, then let them speak. Let's meet together for judgment.
  2. Who has raised up one from the east? Who called him to his foot in righteousness? He hands over nations to him, and makes him rule over kings. He gives them like the dust to his sword, like the driven stubble to his bow.
  3. He pursues them, and passes by safely, Even by a way that he had not gone with his feet.
  4. Who has worked and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I, Yahweh, the first, and with the last, I am he."
  5. The islands have seen, and fear. The ends of the earth tremble. They approach, and come.
  6. Everyone helps his neighbor. They say to their brothers, "Be strong!"
  7. So the carpenter encourages the goldsmith. He who smoothes with the hammer encourages him who strikes the anvil, saying of the soldering, "It is good;" and he fastens it with nails, that it might not totter.
  8. "But you, Israel, my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend,
  9. You whom I have taken hold of from the ends of the earth, and called from its corners, and said to you, 'You are my servant, I have chosen you and not cast you away;'
  10. Don't you be afraid, for I am with you. Don't be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you. Yes, I will help you. Yes, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness.
  11. Behold, all those who are incensed against you will be disappointed and confounded. Those who strive with you will be like nothing, and shall perish.
  12. You will seek them, and won't find them, even those who contend with you. Those who war against you will be as nothing, as a non-existent thing.
  13. For I, Yahweh your God, will hold your right hand, saying to you, 'Don't be afraid. I will help you.'
  14. Don't be afraid, you worm Jacob, and you men of Israel. I will help you," says Yahweh, "and your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel.
  15. Behold, I have made you into a new sharp threshing instrument with teeth. You will thresh the mountains, and beat them small, and will make the hills like chaff.
  16. You will winnow them, and the wind will carry them away, and the whirlwind will scatter them. You will rejoice in Yahweh. You will glory in the Holy One of Israel.
  17. The poor and needy seek water, and there is none. Their tongue fails for thirst. I, Yahweh, will answer them. I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them.
  18. I will open rivers on the bare heights, and springs in the midst of the valleys. I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.
  19. I will put cedar, acacia, myrtle, and oil trees in the wilderness. I will set fir trees, pine, and box trees together in the desert;
  20. that they may see, know, consider, and understand together, that the hand of Yahweh has done this, and the Holy One of Israel has created it.
  21. Produce your cause," says Yahweh. "Bring forth your strong reasons," says the King of Jacob.
  22. "Let them announce, and declare to us what shall happen. Declare the former things, what they are, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or show us things to come.
  23. Declare the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that you are gods. Yes, do good, or do evil, that we may be dismayed, and see it together.
  24. Behold, you are of nothing, and your work is of nothing. He who chooses you is an abomination.
  25. "I have raised up one from the north, and he has come; from the rising of the sun, one who calls on my name; and he shall come on rulers as on mortar, and as the potter treads clay.
  26. Who has declared it from the beginning, that we may know? And before, that we may say, 'He is right?' Surely, there is no one who declares. Surely, there is no one who shows. Surely, there is no one who hears your words.
  27. I am the first to say to Zion, 'Behold, look at them;' and I will give one who brings good news to Jerusalem.
  28. When I look, there is no man; even among them there is no counselor who, when I ask of them, can answer a word.
  29. Behold, all of them, their works are vanity and nothing. Their molten images are wind and confusion.

  24. הן־אתם מאין ופעלכם מאפע תועבה יבחר בכם׃
  25. העירותי מצפון ויאת ממזרח־שמש יקרא בשמי ויבא סגנים כמו־חמר וכמו יוצר ירמס־טיט׃
  26. מי־הגיד מראש ונדעה ומלפנים ונאמר צדיק אף אין־מגיד אף אין משמיע אף אין־שמע אמריכם׃
  27. ראשון לציון הנה הנם ולירושלם מבשר אתן׃
  28. וארא ואין איש ומאלה ואין יועץ ואשאלם וישיבו דבר׃
  29. הן כלם און אפס מעשיהם רוח ותהו נסכיהם׃ ף
Isaiah 41 Text (Greek)
  1. εγκαινιζεσθε προς με νησοι οι γαρ αρχοντες αλλαξουσιν ισχυν εγγισατωσαν και λαλησατωσαν αμα τοτε κρισιν
  2. τις εξηγειρεν απο ανατολων δικαιοσυνην εκαλεσεν αυτην κατα ποδας αυτου και πορευσεται δωσει εναντιον εθνων και βασιλεις εκστησει και δωσει εις γην τας μαχαιρας αυτων και ως φρυγανα εξωσμενα τα τοξα
  3. και διωξεται αυτους και διελευσεται εν ειρηνη η οδος των ποδων
  4. τις ενηργησεν και εποιησεν ταυτα εκαλεσεν αυτην ο καλων αυτην απο γενεων αρχης εγω θεος πρωτος και εις τα επερχομενα εγω
  5. ειδοσαν εθνη και εφοβηθησαν τα ακρα της γης ηγγισαν και ηλθοσαν
  6. κρινων εκαστος τω πλησιον και τω αδελφω βοηθησαι και
  7. ισχυσεν ανηρ τεκτων και χαλκευς τυπτων σφυρη αμα ελαυνων ποτε μεν ερει συμβλημα καλον εστιν ισχυρωσαν αυτα εν ηλοις θησουσιν αυτα και ου
  8. συ δε ισραηλ παις μου ιακωβ ον εξελεξαμην σπερμα αβρααμ ον
  9. ου αντελαβομην απ' ακρων της γης και εκ των σκοπιων αυτης εκαλεσα σε και ειπα σοι παις μου ει εξελεξαμην σε και ουκ εγκατελιπον
  10. μη φοβου μετα σου γαρ ειμι μη πλανω εγω γαρ ειμι ο θεος σου ο ενισχυσας σε και εβοηθησα σοι και ησφαλισαμην σε τη δεξια τη δικαια
  11. ιδου αισχυνθησονται και εντραπησονται παντες οι αντικειμενοι σοι εσονται γαρ ως ουκ οντες και απολουνται παντες οι αντιδικοι
  12. ζητησεις αυτους και ου μη ευρης τους ανθρωπους οι παροινησουσιν εις σε εσονται γαρ ως ουκ οντες και ουκ εσονται οι αντιπολεμουντες
  13. οτι εγω ο θεος σου ο κρατων της δεξιας σου ο λεγων σοι μη
  14. ιακωβ ολιγοστος ισραηλ εγω εβοηθησα σοι λεγει ο θεος ο λυτρουμενος σε
  15. ιδου εποιησα σε ως τροχους αμαξης αλοωντας καινους πριστηροειδεις και αλοησεις ορη και λεπτυνεις βουνους και ως χνουν
  16. και λικμησεις και ανεμος λημψεται αυτους και καταιγις διασπερει αυτους συ δε ευφρανθηση εν τοις αγιοις ισραηλ και
  17. οι πτωχοι και οι ενδεεις ζητησουσιν γαρ υδωρ και ουκ εσται η γλωσσα αυτων απο της διψης εξηρανθη εγω κυριος ο θεος εγω επακουσομαι ο θεος ισραηλ και ουκ εγκαταλειψω
  18. αλλα ανοιξω επι των ορεων ποταμους και εν μεσω πεδιων πηγας ποιησω την ερημον εις ελη και την διψωσαν γην εν
  19. θησω εις την ανυδρον γην κεδρον και πυξον και μυρσινην και κυπαρισσον και
  20. ινα ιδωσιν και γνωσιν και εννοηθωσιν και επιστωνται αμα οτι χειρ κυριου εποιησεν ταυτα παντα και ο αγιος του ισραηλ
  21. εγγιζει η κρισις υμων λεγει κυριος ο θεος ηγγισαν αι βουλαι υμων λεγει ο βασιλευς
  22. εγγισατωσαν και αναγγειλατωσαν υμιν α συμβησεται η τα προτερα τινα ην ειπατε και επιστησομεν τον νουν και γνωσομεθα τι τα εσχατα και τα επερχομενα ειπατε
  23. αναγγειλατε ημιν τα επερχομενα επ' εσχατου και γνωσομεθα οτι θεοι εστε ευ ποιησατε και κακωσατε και θαυμασομεθα και οψομεθα
  24. οτι ποθεν εστε υμεις και ποθεν η εργασια υμων εκ γης βδελυγμα εξελεξαντο
  25. εγω δε ηγειρα τον απο βορρα και τον αφ' ηλιου ανατολων κληθησονται τω ονοματι μου ερχεσθωσαν αρχοντες και ως πηλος κεραμεως και ως κεραμευς καταπατων τον πηλον ουτως
  26. τις γαρ αναγγελει τα εξ αρχης ινα γνωμεν και τα εμπροσθεν και ερουμεν οτι αληθη εστιν ουκ εστιν ο προλεγων ουδε ο ακουων υμων τους
  27. αρχην σιων δωσω και ιερουσαλημ παρακαλεσω εις
  28. απο γαρ των εθνων ιδου ουδεις και απο των ειδωλων αυτων ουκ ην ο αναγγελλων και εαν ερωτησω αυτους ποθεν εστε ου μη αποκριθωσιν
  29. εισιν γαρ οι ποιουντες υμας και ματην οι πλανωντες
Isaiah 41 Text (Latin)
  1. Taceant ad me insulæ, et gentes mutent fortitudinem ; accedant, et tunc loquantur ; simul ad judicium propinquemus.
  2. Quis suscitavit ab oriente Justum, vocavit eum ut sequeretur se ? Dabit in conspectu ejus gentes, et reges obtinebit ; dabit quasi pulverem gladio ejus, sicut stipulam vento raptam arcui ejus.
  3. Persequetur eos, transibit in pace, semita in pedibus ejus non apparebit.
  4. Quia hæc operatus est, et fecit, vocans generationes ab exordio ? Ego Dominus, primus et novissimus ego sum.
  5. Viderunt insulæ, et timuerunt ; extrema terræ obstupuerunt, appropinquaverunt, et accesserunt.
  6. Unusquisque proximo suo auxiliabitur, et fratri suo dicet : Confortare.
  7. Confortavit faber ærarius percutiens malleo eum, qui cudebat tunc temporis, dicens : Glutino bonum est ; et confortavit eum clavis, ut non moveretur.
  8. Et tu, Israël, serve meus, Jacob quem elegi, semen Abraham amici mei :
  9. in quo apprehendi te ab extremis terræ, et a longinquis ejus vocavi te, et dixi tibi : Servus meus es tu, elegi te, et non abjeci te.
  10. Ne timeas, quia ego tecum sum ; ne declines, quia ego Deus tuus ; confortavi te, et auxiliatus sum tibi, et suscepit te dextera Justi mei.
  11. Ecce confundentur et erubescent omnes qui pugnant adversum te ; erunt quasi non sint, et peribunt viri qui contradicunt tibi.
  12. Quæres eos, et non invenies, viros rebelles tuos ; erunt quasi non sint, et veluti consumptio homines bellantes adversum te.
  13. Quia ego Dominus Deus tuus, apprehendens manum tuam, dicensque tibi : Ne timeas ; ego adjuvi te.
  14. Noli timere, vermis Jacob, qui mortui estis ex Israël ; ego auxiliatus sum tibi, dicit Dominus, et redemptor tuus Sanctus Israël.
  15. Ego posui te quasi plaustrum triturans novum, habens rostra serrantia ; triturabis montes, et comminues, et colles quasi pulverem pones.
  16. Ventilabis eos, et ventus tollet, et turbo disperget eos ; et tu exsultabis in Domino, in Sancto Israël lætaberis.
  17. Egeni et pauperes quærunt aquas, et non sunt ; lingua eorum siti aruit. Ego Dominus exaudiam eos, Deus Israël, non derelinquam eos.
  18. Aperiam in supinis collibus flumina, et in medio camporum fontes, ponam desertum in stagna aquarum, et terram inviam in rivos aquarum.
  19. Dabo in solitudinem cedrum, et spinam, et myrtum, et lignum olivæ ; ponam in deserto abietem, ulmum, et buxum simul ;
  20. ut videant et sciant, et recogitent, et intelligant pariter, quia manus Domini fecit hoc, et Sanctus Israël creavit illud.
  21. Prope facite judicium vestrum, dicit Dominus ; afferte, si quid forte habetis, dicit rex Jacob.
  22. Accedant, et nuntient nobis quæcumque ventura sunt ; priora quæ fuerunt nuntiate ; et ponemus cor nostrum, et sciemus novissima eorum ; et quæ ventura sunt indicate nobis.
  23. Annuntiate quæ ventura sunt in futurum, et sciemus quia dii estis vos ; bene quoque aut male, si potestis, facite ; et loquamur et videamus simul.
  24. Ecce vos estis ex nihilo, et opus vestrum ex eo quod non est ; abominatio est qui elegit vos.
  25. Suscitavi ab aquilone, et veniet ab ortu solis ; vocabit nomen meum ; et adducet magistratus quasi lutum, et velut plastes conculans humum.
  26. Quis annuntiavit ab exordio ut sciamus, et a principio ut dicamus : Justus es ? Non est neque annuntians, neque prædicens, neque audiens sermones vestros.
  27. Primus ad Sion dicet : Ecce adsunt, et Jerusalem evangelistam dabo.
  28. Et vidi, et non erat neque ex istis quisquam qui iniret consilium, et interrogatus responderet verbum.
  29. Ecce omnes injusti et vana opera eorum ; ventus et inane simulacra eorum.
Isaiah 41 Text (KJV)
  1. Keep silence before me, O islands; and let the people renew their strength: let them come near; then let them speak: let us come near together to judgment.
  2. Who raised up the righteous man from the east, called him to his foot, gave the nations before him, and made him rule over kings? he gave them as the dust to his sword, and as driven stubble to his bow.
  3. He pursued them, and passed safely; even by the way that he had not gone with his feet.
  4. Who hath wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I the LORD, the first, and with the last; I am he.
  5. The isles saw it, and feared; the ends of the earth were afraid, drew near, and came.
  6. They helped every one his neighbour; and every one said to his brother, Be of good courage.
  7. So the carpenter encouraged the goldsmith, and he that smootheth with the hammer him that smote the anvil, saying, It is ready for the sodering: and he fastened it with nails, that it should not be moved.
  8. But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend.
  9. Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away.
  10. Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
  11. Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish.
  12. Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought.
  13. For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.
  14. Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith the LORD, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.
  15. Behold, I will make thee a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: thou shalt thresh the mountains, and beat them small, and shalt make the hills as chaff.
  16. Thou shalt fan them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind shall scatter them: and thou shalt rejoice in the LORD, and shalt glory in the Holy One of Israel.
  17. When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I the LORD will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them.
  18. I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.
  19. I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree, and the pine, and the box tree together:
  20. That they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the LORD hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it.
  21. Produce your cause, saith the LORD; bring forth your strong reasons, saith the King of Jacob.
  22. Let them bring them forth, and shew us what shall happen: let them shew the former things, what they be, that we may consider them, and know the latter end of them; or declare us things for to come.
  23. Shew the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that ye are gods: yea, do good, or do evil, that we may be dismayed, and behold it together.
  24. Behold, ye are of nothing, and your work of nought: an abomination is he that chooseth you.
  25. I have raised up one from the north, and he shall come: from the rising of the sun shall he call upon my name: and he shall come upon princes as upon morter, and as the potter treadeth clay.
  26. Who hath declared from the beginning, that we may know? and beforetime, that we may say, He is righteous? yea, there is none that sheweth, yea, there is none that declareth, yea, there is none that heareth your words.
  27. The first shall say to Zion, Behold, behold them: and I will give to Jerusalem one that bringeth good tidings.
  28. For I beheld, and there was no man; even among them, and there was no counseller, that, when I asked of them, could answer a word.
  29. Behold, they are all vanity; their works are nothing: their molten images are wind and confusion.
