The Bible in Its Traditions

Isaiah 45:20–25

M G S
V

20  Assemble yourselves and come, draw near together, ye that are escaped of the nations; they have no knowledge that carry the wood of their graven image, and pray unto a god that cannot save.

20  Assemble yourselves, and approach, and draw near together, you who have been saved among the Gentiles. They lack knowledge, who lift up the wood of their sculpture, and who petition a god unable to save.

21  Declare ye, and bring them near, yea, let them take counsel together: Who hath announced this from ancient time, and declared it of old? Have not I YHWH? And there is no God else beside Me, a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside Me.

21  Announce it, and approach, and consult together. Who has caused this to be heard from the beginning, and who has foretold it from that time? Is it not I, the Lord? And is there some other god beside me? I am a just God who saves, and there is no one except me.

M V S
G

22  Look unto Me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is none else.

22  Turn ye to me, and ye shall be saved, ye that come from the end of the earth: I am God, and there is none other.

23  By Myself have I sworn, the word is gone forth from My mouth in righteousness, and shall not come back, that unto Me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.

23  By myself I swear, righteousness shall surely proceed out of my mouth; my words shall not be frustrated;

24  that to me every knee shall bend, and every tongue shall swear by God,

23  I have sworn by myself. The Word of justice will proceed from my mouth, and it will not turn back.

24  For every knee shall bend to me, and every tongue shall swear it.

M V S
G

24  Only in YHWH, shall one say of Me, is victory and strength; even to Him shall men come in confusion, all they that were incensed against Him.

24  saying, Righteousness and glory shall come to him: and all that remove them from their borders shall be ashamed.

25  In YHWH shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and shall glory.

25  By the Lord shall they be justified, and in God shall all the seed of the children of Israel be glorified.

25  In the Lord, all the offspring of Israel will be justified and praised.
