Is 43:2When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, / And through the rivers, they will not flow over you. / And when you walk through the fire, you will not be burned, / And the flame will not consume you.

Is 43:3Because I am Jehovah your God, / The Holy One of Israel, your Savior, / I have given Egypt as your ransom, / Cush and Seba instead of you.

Is 43:4Since you were precious in My eyes, / Since you have been honorable and I have loved you, / I will give up men in your place, / And peoples in exchange for your life.

Is 43:5Do not fear, because I am with you; / I will bring your seed from the east, / And gather you from the west.

Is 43:6I will say to the north, Give them up, / And to the south, Do not keep them back. / Bring My sons from afar, / And My daughters from the end of the earth,

Is 43:7Everyone who is called by My name, / Whom I have created, formed, and even made for My glory.

Is 43:8Bring out the people who are blind yet have eyes, / And those who are deaf yet have ears.

Is 43:9Let all the nations be gathered together, / And let the peoples assemble. / Who among them can declare this / And relate to us the former things? / Let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified, / And let them hear and say, It is true.

Is 43:10You are My witnesses, declares Jehovah, / And My servant whom I have chosen, / In order that you may know and believe Me / And understand that I am He. / Before Me there was no God formed, / Neither will there be any after Me.

Is 43:11I, even I, am Jehovah; / And there is no Savior besides Me.

Is 43:12I have declared, and I have saved, and I have let them hear; / There is no strange god among you. / And you are My witnesses, declares Jehovah, / And I am God.

Is 43:16Thus says Jehovah, / Who has made a way in the sea, / And a path in the mighty waters,

Is 43:17Who brings forth the chariot and the horse, / The army and the powerful together. / They will lie down, they will not rise; / They are extinct, they are quenched like flax.

Is 43:18Do not call to mind the former things, / Nor consider the things of old.

Is 43:19Indeed, I am doing a new thing; / It will now spring forth; / Do you not know it? / I will even make a way in the wilderness, / Rivers in the desert.

Is 43:20The animals of the field will honor Me, / The jackals and the ostriches, / Because I have given them water in the wilderness, / Rivers in the desert, / To give a drink to My people, My chosen ones.

Is 43:21This people I have formed for Myself; / They will show forth My praise.

Is 43:22But you have not called upon Me, O Jacob, / But you have grown weary of Me, O Israel.

Is 43:23You have not brought Me a sheep for your burnt offerings, / And you have not honored Me with your sacrifices; / I have not made you serve Me with a meal offering, / Nor wearied you with incense.

Is 43:24You did not buy calamus for Me with money, / And you did not fill Me with the fat of your sacrifices. / Indeed, you have burdened Me with your sins; / You have wearied Me with your iniquities.

Is 43:25I, even I, am He who wipes away your transgressions for My own sake, / And I will not remember your sins.

Is 43:26Put Me in remembrance; let us plead in judgment together: / Declare your case that you may be justified.

Is 43:27Your first father sinned, / And your mediators transgressed against Me.

Is 43:28Therefore I profaned the princes of the sanctuary, / And I delivered up Jacob to destruction, / And Israel to reviling.
