ISA-66:1 Thus saith the LORD, The heaven [is] my throne, and the

earth [is] my footstool: where [is] the house that ye build unto

me? and where [is] the place of my rest?

ISA-66:2 For all those [things] hath mine hand made, and all

those [things] have been, saith the LORD: but to this [man] will

I look, [even] to [him that is] poor and of a contrite spirit,

and trembleth at my word.

ISA-66:3 He that killeth an ox [is as if] he slew a man; he that

sacrificeth a lamb, [as if] he cut off a dog's neck; he that

offereth an oblation, [as if he offered] swine's blood; he that

burneth incense, [as if] he blessed an idol. Yea, they have

chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their


ISA-66:4 I also will choose their delusions, and will bring

their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer;

when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine

eyes, and chose [that] in which I delighted not.

ISA-66:5 Hear the word of the LORD, ye that tremble at his word;

Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name's

sake, said, Let the LORD be glorified: but he shall appear to

your joy, and they shall be ashamed.

ISA-66:6 A voice of noise from the city, a voice from the temple,

 a voice of the LORD that rendereth recompense to his enemies.

ISA-66:7 Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her

pain came, she was delivered of a man child.

ISA-66:8 Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things?

Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? [or] shall a

nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she

brought forth her children.

ISA-66:9 Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to bring

forth? saith the LORD: shall I cause to bring forth, and shut

[the womb]? saith thy God.

ISA-66:10 Rejoice ye with Jerusalem, and be glad with her, all

ye that love her: rejoice for joy with her, all ye that mourn

for her:

ISA-66:11 That ye may suck, and be satisfied with the breasts of

her consolations; that ye may milk out, and be delighted with

the abundance of her glory.

ISA-66:12 For thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will extend peace

to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a

flowing stream: then shall ye suck, ye shall be borne upon [her]

sides, and be dandled upon [her] knees.

ISA-66:13 As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort

you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem.

ISA-66:14 And when ye see [this], your heart shall rejoice, and

your bones shall flourish like an herb: and the hand of the LORD

shall be known toward his servants, and [his] indignation toward

his enemies.

ISA-66:15 For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with

his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury,

and his rebuke with flames of fire.

ISA-66:16 For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with

all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many.

ISA-66:17 They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves

in the gardens behind one [tree] in the midst, eating swine's

flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed

together, saith the LORD.

ISA-66:18 For I [know] their works and their thoughts: it shall

come, that I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall

come, and see my glory.

ISA-66:19 And I will set a sign among them, and I will send

those that escape of them unto the nations, [to] Tarshish, Pul,

and Lud, that draw the bow, [to] Tubal, and Javan, [to] the

isles afar off, that have not heard my fame, neither have seen

my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the Gentiles.

ISA-66:20 And they shall bring all your brethren [for] an

offering unto the LORD out of all nations upon horses, and in

chariots, and in litters, and upon mules, and upon swift beasts,

to my holy mountain Jerusalem, saith the LORD, as the children

of Israel bring an offering in a clean vessel into the house of

the LORD.

ISA-66:21 And I will also take of them for priests [and] for

Levites, saith the LORD.

ISA-66:22 For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will

make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed

and your name remain.

ISA-66:23 And it shall come to pass, [that] from one new moon to

another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come

to worship before me, saith the LORD.

ISA-66:24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of

the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall

not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be

an abhorring unto all flesh.
