Isaiah 43 (ASV)
 But now thus saith Jehovah that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel: Fear not, for I have redeemed thee; I have called thee by thy name, thou art mine.
 When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned, neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
 For I am Jehovah thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour; I have given Egypt as thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba in thy stead.
 Since thou hast been precious in my sight, and honorable, and I have loved thee; therefore will I give men in thy stead, and peoples instead of thy life.
 Fear not; for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west;
 I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back; bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the end of the earth;
 every one that is called by my name, and whom I have created for my glory, whom I have formed, yea, whom I have made.
 Bring forth the blind people that have eyes, and the deaf that have ears.
 Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the peoples be assembled: who among them can declare this, and show us former things? let them bring their witnesses, that they may be justified; or let them hear, and say, It is truth.
 Ye are my witnesses, saith Jehovah, and my servant whom I have chosen; that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.
 I, even I, am Jehovah; and besides me there is no saviour.
 I have declared, and I have saved, and I have showed; and there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith Jehovah, and I am God.
 Yea, since the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who can hinder it?
 Thus saith Jehovah, 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 rejoicing.
 I am Jehovah, your Holy One, the Creator of Israel, your King.
 Thus saith Jehovah, who maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters;
 who bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the mighty man (they lie down together, they shall not rise; they are extinct, they are quenched as a wick):
 Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.
 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.
 The beasts of the field shall honor me, the jackals and the ostriches; because I give waters in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert, to give drink to my people, my chosen,
 the people which I formed for myself, that they might set forth my praise.
 Yet thou hast not called upon me, O Jacob; but thou hast been weary of me, O Israel.
 Thou hast not brought me of thy sheep for burnt-offerings; neither hast thou honored me with thy sacrifices. I have not burdened thee with offerings, nor wearied thee with frankincense.
 Thou hast bought me no sweet cane with money, neither hast thou filled me with the fat of thy sacrifices; but thou hast burdened me with thy sins, thou hast wearied me with thine iniquities.
 I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake; and I will not remember thy sins.
 Put me in remembrance; let us plead together: set thou forth thy cause, that thou mayest be justified.
 Thy first father sinned, and thy teachers have transgressed against me.
 Therefore I will profane the princes of the sanctuary; and I will make Jacob a curse, and Israel a reviling.
King James w/Strong’s #s
Isaiah 43 (KJVS)
 But now thus saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068 that created H1254 (8802) thee, O Jacob H3290, and he that formed H3335 (8802) thee, O Israel H3478, Fear H3372 (8799) not: for I have redeemed H1350 (8804) thee, I have called H7121 (8804) [thee] by thy name H8034; thou [art] mine.
 When thou passest through H5674 (8799) the waters H4325, I [will be] with thee; and through the rivers H5104, they shall not overflow H7857 (8799) thee: when thou walkest H3212 (8799) through H1119 the fire H784, thou shalt not be burned H3554 (8735); neither shall the flame H3852 kindle H1197 (8799) upon thee.
 For I [am] the LORD H3068 thy God H430, the Holy One H6918 of Israel H3478, thy Saviour H3467 (8688): I gave H5414 (8804) Egypt H4714 [for] thy ransom H3724, Ethiopia H3568 and Seba H5434 for thee.
 Since thou wast precious H3365 (8804) in my sight H5869, thou hast been honourable H3513 (8738), and I have loved H157 (8804) thee: therefore will I give H5414 (8799) men H120 for thee, and people H3816 for thy life H5315.
 Fear H3372 (8799) not: for I [am] with thee: I will bring H935 (8686) thy seed H2233 from the east H4217, and gather H6908 (8762) thee from the west H4628;
 I will say H559 (8799) to the north H6828, Give up H5414 (8798); and to the south H8486, Keep not back H3607 (8799): bring H935 (8685) my sons H1121 from far H7350, and my daughters H1323 from the ends H7097 of the earth H776;
 [Even] every one H3605 that is called H7121 (8737) by my name H8034: for I have created H1254 (8804) him for my glory H3519, I have formed H3335 (8804) him; yea, I have made H6213 (8804) him.
 Bring forth H3318 (8685) the blind H5787 people H5971 that have H3426 eyes H5869, and the deaf H2795 that have ears H241.
 Let all the nations H1471 be gathered H6908 (8738) together H3162, and let the people H3816 be assembled H622 (8735): who among them can declare H5046 (8686) this, and shew H8085 (8686) us former things H7223? let them bring forth H5414 (8799) their witnesses H5707, that they may be justified H6663 (8799): or let them hear H8085 (8799), and say H559 (8799), [It is] truth H571.
 Ye [are] my witnesses H5707, saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068, and my servant H5650 whom I have chosen H977 (8804): that ye may know H3045 (8799) and believe H539 (8686) me, and understand H995 (8799) that I [am] he: before H6440 me there was no God H410 formed H3335 (8738), neither shall there be after H310 me.
 I, [even] I, [am] the LORD H3068; and beside H1107 me [there is] no saviour H3467 (8688).
 I have declared H5046 (8689), and have saved H3467 (8689), and I have shewed H8085 (8689), when [there was] no strange H2114 (8801) [god] among you: therefore ye [are] my witnesses H5707, saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068, that I [am] God H410.
 Yea, before the day H3117 [was] I [am] he; and [there is] none that can deliver H5337 (8688) out of my hand H3027: I will work H6466 (8799), and who shall let H7725 (8686) it?
 Thus saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068, your redeemer H1350 (8802), the Holy One H6918 of Israel H3478; For your sake I have sent H7971 (8765) to Babylon H894, and have brought down H3381 (8689) all their nobles H1281, and the Chaldeans H3778, whose cry H7440 [is] in the ships H591.
 I [am] the LORD H3068, your Holy One H6918, the creator H1254 (8802) of Israel H3478, your King H4428.
 Thus saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068, which maketh H5414 (8802) a way H1870 in the sea H3220, and a path H5410 in the mighty H5794 waters H4325;
 Which bringeth forth H3318 (8688) the chariot H7393 and horse H5483, the army H2428 and the power H5808; they shall lie down H7901 (8799) together H3162, they shall not rise H6965 (8799): they are extinct H1846 (8804), they are quenched H3518 (8804) as tow H6594.
 Remember H2142 (8799) ye not the former things H7223, neither consider H995 (8709) the things of old H6931.
 Behold, I will do H6213 (8802) a new thing H2319; now it shall spring forth H6779 (8799); shall ye not know H3045 (8799) it? I will even make H7760 (8799) a way H1870 in the wilderness H4057, [and] rivers H5104 in the desert H3452.
 The beast H2416 of the field H7704 shall honour H3513 (8762) me, the dragons H8577 and the owls H1323 H3284: because I give H5414 (8804) waters H4325 in the wilderness H4057, [and] rivers H5104 in the desert H3452, to give drink H8248 (8687) to my people H5971, my chosen H972.
 This H2098 people H5971 have I formed H3335 (8804) for myself; they shall shew forth H5608 (8762) my praise H8416.
 But thou hast not called H7121 (8804) upon me, O Jacob H3290; but thou hast been weary H3021 (8804) of me, O Israel H3478.
 Thou hast not brought H935 (8689) me the small cattle H7716 of thy burnt offerings H5930; neither hast thou honoured H3513 (8765) me with thy sacrifices H2077. I have not caused thee to serve H5647 (8689) with an offering H4503, nor wearied H3021 (8689) thee with incense H3828.
 Thou hast bought H7069 (8804) me no sweet cane H7070 with money H3701, neither hast thou filled H7301 (8689) me with the fat H2459 of thy sacrifices H2077: but thou hast made me to serve H5647 (8689) with thy sins H2403, thou hast wearied H3021 (8689) me with thine iniquities H5771.
 I, [even] I, [am] he that blotteth out H4229 (8802) thy transgressions H6588 for mine own sake, and will not remember H2142 (8799) thy sins H2403.
 Put me in remembrance H2142 (8685): let us plead H8199 (8735) together H3162: declare H5608 (8761) thou, that thou mayest be justified H6663 (8799).
 Thy first H7223 father H1 hath sinned H2398 (8804), and thy teachers H3887 (8688) have transgressed H6586 (8804) against me.
 Therefore I have profaned H2490 (8762) the princes H8269 of the sanctuary H6944, and have given H5414 (8799) Jacob H3290 to the curse H2764, and Israel H3478 to reproaches H1421.
Young’s Literal Translation
Isaiah 43 (YLT)
 And now, thus said Jehovah, Thy Creator, O Jacob, and thy Fashioner, O Israel, Be not afraid, for I have redeemed thee, I have called on thy name-thou art Mine.
 When thou passest into waters, I am with thee, And into floods, they do not overflow thee, When thou goest into fire, thou art not burnt, And a flame doth not burn against thee.
 For I-Jehovah thy God, The Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour, I have appointed Egypt thine atonement, Cush and Seba in thy stead.
 Since thou wast precious in Mine eyes, Thou wast honoured, and I have loved thee, And I appoint men in thy stead, And peoples instead of thy life.
 Be not afraid, for I am with thee, From the east I bring in thy seed, And from the west I gather thee.
 I am saying to the north, ‘Give up,’ And to the south, ‘Restrain not.’ Bring in My sons from afar, And My daughters from the end of the earth.
 Every one who is called by My name, Even for My honour I have created him, I have formed him, yea, I have made him.
 He brought out a blind people who have eyes, And deaf ones who have ears.
 All the nations have been gathered together, And the peoples are assembled, Who among them declareth this, And former things causeth us to hear? They give their witnesses, And they are declared righteous, And they hear and say, ‘Truth.’
 Ye are My witnesses, an affirmation of Jehovah, And My servant whom I have chosen, So that ye know and give credence to Me, And understand that I am He, Before Me there was no God formed, And after Me there is none.
 I-I am Jehovah, And besides Me there is no saviour.
 I-I declared, and saved, and proclaimed, And there is no stranger with you, And ye are My witnesses, an affirmation of Jehovah, And I am God.
 Even from the day I am He, And there is no deliverer from My hand, I work, and who doth turn it back?
 Thus said Jehovah, your Redeemer, The Holy One of Israel: ‘For your sake I have sent to Babylon, And caused bars to descend-all of them, And the Chaldeans, whose song is in the ships.
 I am Jehovah, your Holy One, Creator of Israel, your King.’
 Thus said Jehovah, Who is giving in the sea a way, And in the strong waters a path.
 Who is bringing forth chariot and horse, A force, even a strong one: ‘Together they lie down-they rise not, They have been extinguished, As flax they have been quenched.’
 Remember not former things, And ancient things consider not.
 Lo, I am doing a new thing, now it springeth up, Do ye not know it? Yea, I put in a wilderness a way, In a desolate place-floods.
 Honour me doth the beast of the field, Dragons and daughters of an ostrich, For I have given in a wilderness waters, Floods in a desolate place, To give drink to My people-My chosen.
 This people I have formed for Myself, My praise they recount.
 And Me thou hast not called, O Jacob, For thou hast been wearied of me, O Israel,
 Thou hast not brought in to Me, The lamb of thy burnt-offerings, And with thy sacrifices thou hast not honoured Me, I have not caused thee to serve with a present, Nor wearied thee with frankincense.
 Thou hast not bought for Me with money sweet cane, And with the fat of thy sacrifices hast not filled Me, Only-thou hast caused Me to serve with thy sins, Thou hast wearied Me with thine iniquities.
 I-I am He who is blotting out Thy transgressions for Mine own sake, And thy sins I do not remember.
 Cause me to remember-we are judged together, Declare thou that thou mayest be justified.
 Thy first father sinned, And thine interpreters transgressed against me,
 And I pollute princes of the sanctuary, And I give Jacob to destruction, and Israel to revilings!
