By his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify
many; For he shall bear their iniquities. Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, And he shall divide the spoil with the strong; Because he hath poured out his soul unto death: And he was numbered with the transgressors; And he bare the sin of many, And made intercession for the transgressors.
SING, O barren, thou that didst not bear;
didst not travail with child: For more are the children of the desolate than the
children of the married wife, saith the Lord. Enlarge the place of thy tent, And let them stretch forth the curtains of thine ha
bitations: Spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy
stakes; For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on
the left; And thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, And make the desolate cities to be inhabited. Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed: Neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be
put to shame: For thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth,
And shalt not remember the reproach of thy widow
hood any more. For thy Maker is thine husband; The Lord of hosts is his name; And thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called. For the Lord hath called thee as a woman forsaken
and grieved in spirit, And a wife of youth, when thou wast refused, saith
thy God. For a small moment have I forsaken thee; But with great mercies will I gather thee. In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a mo

thee, Saith the Lord thy Redeemer. For this is as the waters of Noah unto me: For as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should
no more go over the earth; So have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee,
nor rebuke thee. For the mountains shall depart, And the hills be removed; But my
kindness shall not depart from thee, Neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, Saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee.
O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not com
by me: Whosoever shall gather together against thee shall
fall for thy sake. Behold, I have created the smith That bloweth the coals in the fire, And that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; And I have created the waster to destroy. No weapon
that is formed against thee shall prosper; And every tongue that shall rise against thee in
judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.
