God's Help for Israel (cont.)
Today's Passage: Isaiah 41:14-29
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Thank You for meeting us, LORD.
We welcome you into this place.
14. Though you were a lowly worm, O Jacob, don't be afraid, people of Israel, for I will help you. I am the LORD, your Redeemer. I am the Holy One of Israel.'
15. You will be a new threshing instrument with many sharp teeth. You will tear your enemies apart, making chaff of mountains.
16. You will toss them into the air, and the wind will blow them all away; a whirlwind will scatter them. Then you will rejoice in the LORD. You will glory in the Holy One of Israel.
17. "When the poor and needy search for water and there is none, and their tongues are parched from thirst, then I, the LORD, will never abandon them.
18. I will open up rivers for them on the high plateaus. I will give them fountains of water in the valleys. I will fill the desert with pools of water. Rivers fed by springs will flow across the parched ground.
19. I will plant trees in the barren desert ⏤ cedar, acacia, myrtle, olive, cypress, fir, and pine.
20. I am doing this so all who see this miracle will understand what it means ⏤ that it is the LORD who has done this, the Holy One of Israel who created it.
21. "Present the case for your idols," says the LORD. "Let them show what they can do," says the King of Israel.
22. "Let them try to tell us what happened long ago so that we may consider the evidence. Or let them tell us what the future holds, so we can know what's going to happen.
23. Yes, tell us what will occur in the days ahead. Then we will know you are gods. In fact, do anything ⏤ good or bad! Do something that will amaze and frighten us.
24. But no! You are less than nothing and can do nothing at all. Those who choose you pollute themselves.
25. "But I have stirred up a leader who will come from the north. I have called him by name from the east. I will give him victory over kings and princes. He will trample them as a potter treads on clay.
26. "Who told you from the beginning that this would happen?" Who predicted this, making you admit that he was right? No one said a word!
27. I was the first to tell Zion, 'Look! Help is on the way!"' I will send Jerusalem a messenger with good news.
28. Not one of your idols told you this. Not one gave an answer when I asked.
29. See, they are all foolish, worthless things. All your idols are as empty as the wind.
Isaiah 41:14-29 NLT
History - Oh wow, that is where it comes from.
