Isaiah 63:7–14

M V S
G

I will make mention of the mercies of YHWH, and the praises of the YHWH, according to all that the LORD hath bestowed on us; and the great goodness toward the house of Israel, which He hath bestowed on them according to His compassions, and according to the multitude of His mercies.

I remembered the mercy of the Lord, the praises of the Lord in all things wherein he recompenses us. The Lord is a good judge to the house of Israel; he deals with us according to his mercy, and according to the abundance of his righteousness.

For He said: 'Surely, they are My people, children that will not deal falsely'; so He was their Saviour.

And he said, Is it not my people? the children surely will not be rebellious: and he became to them deliverance

And he said: “Yet truly, these are my people, sons who have not been disowned.” And he became their Savior.

In all their affliction He was afflicted, and the angel of His presence saved them; in His love and in His pity He redeemed them; and He bore them, and carried them all the days of old.

out of all their affliction: not an ambassador, nor a messenger, but himself saved them, because he loved them and spared them: he himself redeemed them, and took them up, and lifted them up all the days of old.

Throughout all their tribulation, he was not troubled, for the Angel of his presence saved them. With his love, and by his leniency, he has redeemed them, and he has carried them and lifted them up, throughout all the days of the ages.

10  But they rebelled, and grieved His holy spirit; therefore He was turned to be their enemy, Himself fought against them.

10  But they disobeyed, and provoked his Holy Spirit: so he turned to be an enemy, he himself contended against them.

10  But they themselves provoked to wrath and afflicted his Holy Spirit, and he was turned to be for them like an enemy, and he himself went to war against them.

11  Then His people remembered the days of old, the days of Moses: 'Where is He that brought them up out of the sea with the shepherds of His flock? Where is He that put His holy spirit in the midst of them?

11  Then he remembered the ancient days, saying, Where is he that brought up from the sea the shepherd of the sheep? where is he that put his Holy Spirit in them?

12  That caused His glorious arm to go at the right hand of Moses? That divided the water before them, to make Himself an everlasting name?

12  who led Moses with his right hand, the arm of his glory? he forced the water to separate from before him, to make himself an everlasting name.

12  Who led them by his right hand and by his glorious arm, dividing the waters before them and making for them an everlasting name

13  That led them through the deep, as a horse in the wilderness, without stumbling?

13  He led them through the deep, as a horse through the wilderness, and they fainted not,

13  And leading them through the deep, as a horse is led in the wilderness, and they stumbled not,

14  As the cattle that go down into the valley, the spirit of YHWH caused them to rest; so didst Thou lead Thy people, to make Thyself a glorious name.'

14  and as cattle through a plain: the Spirit came down from the Lord, and guided them: thus thou leddest thy people, to make thyself a glorious name.

14  Like an animal who descends to an open field, the Spirit of the Lord was their guide. Thus did you lead your people, in order to make a glorious name for yourself.
