Isaiah 66

66 This is what the Lord says: “Heaven is my throne,     and the earth is my footstool. Where is the house you will build for me?     Where will my resting place be? 2 Has not my hand made all these things,     and so they came into being?” declares the Lord. “These are the ones I look on with favor:     those who […]

Isaiah 65

65 “I revealed myself to those who did not ask for me;     I was found by those who did not seek me. To a nation that did not call on my name,     I said, ‘Here am I, here am I.’ 2 All day long I have held out my hands     to an obstinate people, who walk in ways […]

Isaiah 64

64 Oh, that you would rend the heavens and come down,     that the mountains would tremble before you! 2 As when fire sets twigs ablaze     and causes water to boil, come down to make your name known to your enemies     and cause the nations to quake before you! 3 For when you did awesome things that we did not expect,     you came […]

Isaiah 63

63 Who is this coming from Edom,     from Bozrah, with his garments stained crimson? Who is this, robed in splendor,     striding forward in the greatness of his strength? “It is I, proclaiming victory,     mighty to save.” 2 Why are your garments red,     like those of one treading the winepress? 3 “I have trodden the winepress alone;     from the nations no […]

62 For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent,     for Jerusalem’s sake I will not remain quiet, till her vindication shines out like the dawn,     her salvation like a blazing torch. 2 The nations will see your vindication,     and all kings your glory; you will be called by a new name     that the mouth of the Lord will bestow. 3 You will be […]

Isaiah 61

61 The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,     because the Lord has anointed me     to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,     to proclaim freedom for the captives     and release from darkness for the prisoners, 2 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor     and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, 3     and provide […]

Isaiah 60

60 “Arise, shine, for your light has come,     and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. 2 See, darkness covers the earth     and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you     and his glory appears over you. 3 Nations will come to your light,     and kings to the brightness of your dawn. 4 “Lift up your eyes and look about you:     All assemble and come to […]

Isaiah 59

59 Surely the arm of the Lord is not too short to save,     nor his ear too dull to hear. 2 But your iniquities have separated     you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you,     so that he will not hear. 3 For your hands are stained with blood,     your fingers with guilt. Your lips have spoken falsely,     and […]

Isaiah 58

58 “Shout it aloud, do not hold back.     Raise your voice like a trumpet. Declare to my people their rebellion     and to the descendants of Jacob their sins. 2 For day after day they seek me out;     they seem eager to know my ways, as if they were a nation that does what is right     and has not forsaken the […]

Isaiah 57

57 The righteous perish,     and no one takes it to heart; the devout are taken away,     and no one understands that the righteous are taken away     to be spared from evil. 2 Those who walk uprightly     enter into peace;     they find rest as they lie in death. 3 “But you—come here, you children of a sorceress,     you offspring of […]
