1 Haec dicit Dominus de uncto suo Cyro: "Apprehendi dexteram eius, ut subiciam ante faciem eius gentes et dorsa regum vertam et aperiam coram eo ianuas; et portae non claudentur.
2 Ego ante te ibo et montes humiliabo; portas aereas conteram et vectes ferreos confringam.
3 Et dabo tibi thesauros absconditos et divitias occultas, ut scias quia ego Dominus, qui vocavi te nomine tuo, Deus Israel.
4 Propter servum meum Iacob et Israel electum meum, et vocavi te nomine tuo; designavi te, et non cognovisti me.
5 Ego Dominus, et non est amplius: extra me non est Deus. Accinxi te, et non cognovisti me,
6 ut sciant ab ortu solis et ab occidente quoniam absque me nullus est. Ego Dominus, et non est alter,
7 formans lucem et creans tenebras, faciens pacem et creans malum: ego Dominus faciens omnia haec.
8 Rorate, caeli, desuper, et nubes pluant iustitiam; aperiatur terra et germinet salvationem; et iustitia oriatur simul: ego Dominus creavi eam".
9 Vae, qui contradicit fictori suo, testa de vasis fictilibus terrae! Numquid dicet lutum figulo suo: "Quid facis?" et "Opus tuum absque manibus est "?
10 Vae, qui dicit patri: "Quid generas?" et mulieri: "Quid parturis?".
11 Haec dicit Dominus, Sanctus Israel, plastes eius: "Numquid ventura interrogatis me super filios meos et super opus manuum mearum mandatis mihi?
12 Ego feci terram et hominem super eam creavi ego; manus meae tetenderunt caelos, et omni militiae eorum mandavi.
13 Ego suscitavi eum in iustitia et omnes vias eius dirigam; ipse aedificabit civitatem meam et captivitatem meam dimittet non in pretio neque in muneribus", dicit Dominus exercituum.
14 Haec dicit Dominus: "Labor Aegypti et negotiatio Aethiopiae et Sabaim viri sublimes ad te transibunt et tui erunt; post te ambulabunt, vincti manicis pergent et te adorabunt teque deprecabuntur: "Tantum in te est Deus, et non est absque te Deus!".
15 Vere tu es Deus absconditus, Deus Israel, salvator.
16 Confusi sunt et erubuerunt omnes, simul abierunt in confusionem fabricatores idolorum.
17 Israel salvatus est in Domino salute aeterna; non confundemini et non erubescetis usque in saeculum saeculi.
18 Quia haec dicit Dominus, qui creavit caelos, ipse Deus, qui formavit terram et fecit eam, ipse fundavit eam; non ut vacua esset, creavit eam, ut habitaretur, formavit eam: "Ego Dominus, et non est alius.
19 Non in abscondito locutus sum, in loco terrae tenebroso; non dixi semini Iacob: "Frustra quaerite me". Ego Dominus loquens iustitiam, annuntians recta.
20 Congregamini et venite et accedite simul, qui salvati estis ex gentibus. Nescierunt, qui levant lignum sculpturae suae et rogant deum non salvantem.
21 Annuntiate et venite et consiliamini simul. Quis auditum fecit hoc ab initio, ex tunc praedixit illud? Numquid non ego Dominus, et non est ultra Deus absque me? Deus iustus et salvans non est praeter me.
22 Convertimini ad me et salvi eritis, omnes fines terrae, quia ego Deus, et non est alius.
23 In memetipso iuravi: Egressa est de ore meo iustitia, verbum, quod non revertetur; quia mihi curvabitur omne genu, et iurabit omnis lingua".
24 "Tantum in Domino "dicent" sunt iustitiae et robur!". Ad eum venient et confundentur omnes, qui repugnant ei;
25 in Domino iustificabitur et laudabitur omne semen Israel.
King James Version
1 Thus saith the LORD to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut;
2 I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:
3 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.
4 For Jacob my servant's sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me.
5 ¶ I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:
6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else.
7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
8 Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it.
9 Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands?
10 Woe unto him that saith unto his father, What begettest thou? or to the woman, What hast thou brought forth?
11 Thus saith the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.
12 I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded.
13 I have raised him up in righteousness, and I will direct all his ways: he shall build my city, and he shall let go my captives, not for price nor reward, saith the LORD of hosts.
14 Thus saith the LORD, The labour of Egypt, and merchandise of Ethiopia and of the Sabeans, men of stature, shall come over unto thee, and they shall be thine: they shall come after thee; in chains they shall come over, and they shall fall down unto thee, they shall make supplication unto thee, saying, Surely God is in thee; and there is none else, there is no God.
15 Verily thou art a God that hidest thyself, O God of Israel, the Saviour.
16 They shall be ashamed, and also confounded, all of them: they shall go to confusion together that are makers of idols.
17 But Israel shall be saved in the LORD with an everlasting salvation: ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end.
18 For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.
19 I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the LORD speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.
20 ¶ Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, ye that are escaped of the nations: they have no knowledge that set up the wood of their graven image, and pray unto a god that cannot save.
21 Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.
22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.
23 I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.
24 Surely, shall one say, in the LORD have I righteousness and strength: even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed.
25 In the LORD shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory.
