V S

14  Thus saith YHWH, your Redeemer, The Holy One of Israel: For your sake I have sent to Babylon, and I will bring down all of them as fugitives, even the Chaldeans, in the ships of their shouting.

14  Thus saith the Lord God that redeems you, the Holy One of Israel; for your sakes I will send to Babylon, and I will stir up all that flee, and the Chaldeans shall be bound in ships.

14  Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: For your sake, I sent to Babylon, and tore down all their bars, with the Chaldeans who glory in their ships.

15  I am YHWH, your Holy One, the Creator of Israel, your King.

15  I am the Lord God, your Holy One, who have appointed for Israel your king.

16  Thus saith YHWH, who maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters;

17  Who bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power--they lie down together, they shall not rise, they are extinct, they are quenched as a wick

17  who brought forth chariots and horse, and a mighty multitude: but they have lain down, and shall not rise: they are extinct, as quenched flax.

M G S
V

18  Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.

18  You need not call to mind the past, nor consider the things of antiquity.

19  Behold, I will do a new thing; now shall it spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

19  Behold, I am accomplishing new things. And presently, they will spring forth. With certainty, you will know them. I will make a way in the desert, and rivers in an impassible place.

20  The beasts of the field shall honour Me, the jackals and the ostriches; because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to My people, Mine elect;

20  The wild beasts of the field will glorify me, with the serpents and the ostriches. For I have brought waters to the desert, rivers to inaccessible places, in order to give drink to my people, to my elect.

21  The people which I formed for Myself, that they might tell of My praise.

21  my people whom I have preserved to tell forth my praises.

21  This people whom I have chosen for myself, they shall drink.
