Isaiah 45:14–19

G
V S

14  Thus saith YHWH: The labour of Egypt, and the merchandise of Ethiopia, and of the Sabeans, men of stature, shall come over unto thee, and they shall be thine; they shall go after thee, in chains they shall come over; and they shall fall down unto thee, they shall make supplication unto thee: Surely God is in thee, and there is none else, there is no other God.

14  Thus saith the Lord of hosts, Egypt has laboured for thee; and the merchandise of the Ethiopians, and the Sabeans, men of stature, shall pass over to thee, and shall be thy servants; and they shall follow after thee bound in fetters, and shall pass over to thee, and shall do obeisance to thee, and make supplication to thee: because God is in thee; and there is no God beside thee, O Lord.

14  Thus says the Lord: The labor of Egypt, and the business dealings of Ethiopia, and of the Sabeans, men of stature, will pass to you and will be yours. They will walk behind you. They will travel, bound in irons. And they will adore you and petition you: “In you alone is God, and there is no God apart from you.

15  Verily Thou art a God that hidest Thyself, O God of Israel, the Saviour.

15  For thou art God, yet we knew it not, the God of Israel, the Saviour.

15  Truly, you are a hidden God, the God of Israel, the Savior.”

16  They shall be ashamed, yea, confounded, all of them; they shall go in confusion together that are makers of idols.

16  All that are opposed to him shall be ashamed and confounded, and shall walk in shame: ye isles, keep a feast to me.

16  They who walk in confusion and make idols are all ashamed and confounded together;

17  O Israel, that art saved by YHWH with an everlasting salvation; ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end.

17  Israel is saved by the Lord with an everlasting salvation: they shall not be ashamed nor confounded for evermore.

17  But the salvation of Israel is by the LORD, the Saviour of the world; you shall not be ashamed nor confounded for ever and ever.

18  For thus saith YHWH that created the heavens, He is God; that formed the earth and made it, He established it, He created it not a waste, He formed it to be inhabited: I am the YHWH, and there is none else.

18  For thus says the Lord, who created the heavens, God himself who formed the earth and made it, the very Molder of it. He did not create it to no purpose. He formed it so that it would be inhabited. I am the Lord, and there is no other.

M G V S

19  I have not spoken in secret, in a place of the land of darkness; I said not unto the seed of Jacob: 'Seek ye Me in vain'; I YHWH speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.
