Textus Receptus Bibles
Jay P. Green's Literal Translation 1993
|46:1||Bel has bowed; Nebo stoops; their idols are for the beast, and for the cattle; your things carried are loads; a burden for the weary.|
|46:2||They stoop; they bow together; they are not able to deliver the burden; and their soul has gone into captivity.|
|46:3||Listen to me, O house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel; who are borne from the belly, who are lifted from the womb:|
|46:4||Even to old age I am He; and I will bear to gray hair; I made, and I will carry; and I will bear and deliver.|
|46:5||To whom will you compare and make Me equal; yea, compare Me, that we may be alike?|
|46:6||Those who lavish gold out of the bag, and weigh silver on the measuring rod; they hire a refiner and he makes it a god. They fall down; yea, they worship.|
|46:7||They carry it on the shoulder; they bear it and set it in its place, and it stands; it shall not move from its place. Yes, he cries to it, but it does not answer, it does not save him from his distress.|
|46:8||Remember this and be a man; return it on your heart, transgressors.|
|46:9||Remember former things from forever, for I am God, and no one else is God, even none like Me,|
|46:10||declaring the end from the beginning, and from the past those things which were not done, saying, My purpose shall rise; and, I will do all My desire;|
|46:11||calling a bird of prey from the sunrise, the man of My counsel from a far off land. Yes, I have spoken; yes, I will cause it to come; I have formed; yes, I will do it.|
|46:12||Listen to Me, mighty ones of heart who are far from righteousness:|
|46:13||I bring near My righteousness; it shall not be far off, and My salvation shall not wait; I will place salvation in Zion, My glory for Israel.|
