Chapter 46

1

 

  Bel bows down, Nebo stoops; their idols are on the animals, and on the cattle: the things that you carried about are made a load, a burden to the weary [animal].  

 

 


2

 

  They stoop, they bow down together; they could not deliver the burden, but themselves are gone into captivity.  

 

 


3

 

  Listen to me, house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel, that have been borne [by me] from their birth, that have been carried from the womb;  

 

 


4

 

  and even to old age I am he, and even to gray hairs will I carry you. I have made, and I will bear; yes, I will carry, and will deliver.  

 

 


5

 

  To whom will you liken me, and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be like?  

 

 


6

 

  Some pour out gold from the bag, and weigh silver in the balance. They hire a goldsmith, and he makes it a god. They fall down -- yes, they worship.  

 

 


7

 

  They bear it on the shoulder, they carry it, and set it in its place, and it stands, from its place it shall not move: yes, one may cry to it, yet it can not answer, nor save him out of his trouble.  

 

 


8

 

  Remember this, and show yourselves men; bring it again to mind, you transgressors.  

 

 


9

 

  Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; [I am] God, and there is none like me;  

 

 


10

 

  declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not [yet] done; saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure;  

 

 


11

 

  calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man of my counsel from a far country; yes, I have spoken, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed, I will also do it.  

 

 


12

 

  Listen to me, you stout-hearted, who are far from righteousness:  

 

 


13

 

  I bring near my righteousness, it shall not be far off, and my salvation shall not wait; and I will place salvation in Zion for Israel my glory.
