Isaiah 46 (WEBP)

[1] Bel bows down. Nebo stoops. Their idols are carried by animals, and on the livestock. The things that you carried around are heavy loads, a burden for the weary.
[2] They stoop and they bow down together. They could not deliver the burden, but they have gone into captivity.
[3] “Listen to me, house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel, that have been carried from their birth, that have been carried from the womb.
[4] Even to old age I am he, and even to gray hairs I will carry you. I have made, and I will bear. Yes, I will carry, and will deliver.
[5] “To whom will you compare me, and consider my equal, and compare me, as if we were the same?
[6] Some pour out gold from the bag, and weigh silver in the balance. They hire a goldsmith, and he makes it a god. They fall down— yes, they worship.
[7] They bear it on their shoulder. They carry it, and set it in its place, and it stands there. It cannot move from its place. Yes, one may cry to it, yet it can not answer. It cannot save him out of his trouble.
[8] “Remember this, and show yourselves men. Bring it to mind again, you transgressors.
[9] Remember the former things of old; for I am God, and there is no other. I am God, and there is none like me.
[10] I declare the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done. I say: My counsel will stand, and I will do all that I please.
[11] I call a ravenous bird from the east, the man of my counsel from a far country. Yes, I have spoken. I will also bring it to pass. I have planned. I will also do it.
[12] Listen to me, you stubborn-hearted, who are far from righteousness!
[13] I bring my righteousness near. It is not far off, and my salvation will not wait. I will grant salvation to Zion, my glory to Israel.

Isaiah 46 (KJVS)

[1] Bel H1078 boweth down H3766 (8804), Nebo H5015 stoopeth H7164 (8802), their idols H6091 were upon the beasts H2416, and upon the cattle H929: your carriages H5385 [were] heavy loaden H6006 (8803); [they are] a burden H4853 to the weary H5889 [beast].
[2] They stoop H7164 (8804), they bow down H3766 (8804) together H3162; they could H3201 (8804) not deliver H4422 (8763) the burden H4853, but themselves H5315 are gone H1980 (8804) into captivity H7628.
[3] Hearken H8085 (8798) unto me, O house H1004 of Jacob H3290, and all the remnant H7611 of the house H1004 of Israel H3478, which are borne H6006 (8803) [by me] from the belly H990, which are carried H5375 (8803) from the womb H7356:
[4] And [even] to [your] old age H2209 I [am] he; and [even] to hoar hairs H7872 will I carry H5445 (8799) [you]: I have made H6213 (8804), and I will bear H5375 (8799); even I will carry H5445 (8799), and will deliver H4422 (8762) [you].
[5] To whom will ye liken H1819 (8762) me, and make [me] equal H7737 (8686), and compare H4911 (8686) me, that we may be like H1819 (8799)?
[6] They lavish H2107 (8801) gold H2091 out of the bag H3599, and weigh H8254 (8799) silver H3701 in the balance H7070, [and] hire H7936 (8799) a goldsmith H6884 (8802); and he maketh H6213 (8799) it a god H410: they fall down H5456 (8799), yea, they worship H7812 (8691).
[7] They bear H5375 (8799) him upon the shoulder H3802, they carry H5445 (8799) him, and set him in his place H3240 (8686), and he standeth H5975 (8799); from his place H4725 shall he not remove H4185 (8686): yea, [one] shall cry H6817 (8799) unto him, yet can he not answer H6030 (8799), nor save H3467 (8686) him out of his trouble H6869.
[8] Remember H2142 (8798) this, and shew yourselves men H377 (8695): bring [it] again H7725 (8685) to mind H3820, O ye transgressors H6586 (8802).
[9] Remember H2142 (8798) the former things H7223 of old H5769: for I [am] God H410, and [there is] none else; [I am] God H430, and [there is] none H657 like H3644 me,
[10] Declaring H5046 (8688) the end H319 from the beginning H7225, and from ancient times H6924 [the things] that are not [yet] done H6213 (8738), saying H559 (8802), My counsel H6098 shall stand H6965 (8799), and I will do H6213 (8799) all my pleasure H2656:
[11] Calling H7121 (8802) a ravenous bird H5861 from the east H4217, the man H376 that executeth my counsel H6098 from a far H4801 country H776: yea, I have spoken H1696 (8765) [it], I will also bring H935 (8686) it to pass; I have purposed H3335 (8804) [it], I will also do H6213 (8799) it.
[12] Hearken H8085 (8798) unto me, ye stouthearted H47 H3820, that [are] far from H7350 righteousness H6666:
[13] I bring near H7126 (8765) my righteousness H6666; it shall not be far off H7368 (8799), and my salvation H8668 shall not tarry H309 (8762): and I will place H5414 (8804) salvation H8668 in Zion H6726 for Israel H3478 my glory H8597.

Young’s Literal Translation

Isaiah 46 (YLT)

[1] Bowed down hath Bel, stooping is Nebo, Their idols have been for the beast and for cattle, Your burdens are loaded, a burden to the weary.
[2] They have stooped, they have bowed together, They have not been able to deliver the burden, And themselves into captivity have gone.
[3] Hearken unto Me, O house of Jacob, And all the remnant of Israel, Who are borne from the belly, Who are carried from the womb,
[4] Even to old age I am He, and to grey hairs I carry, I made, and I bear, yea, I carry and deliver.
[5] To whom do ye liken Me, and make equal? And compare Me, that we may be like?
[6] -They are pouring out gold from a bag, And silver on the beam they weigh, They hire a refiner, and he maketh it a god, They fall down, yea, they bow themselves.
[7] They lift him up on the shoulder, They carry him, and cause him to rest in his place, And he standeth, from his place he moveth not, Yea, one crieth unto him, and he answereth not, From his adversity he saveth him not.
[8] Remember this, and shew yourselves men, Turn it back, O transgressors, to the heart.
[9] Remember former things of old, For I am Mighty, and there is none else, God-and there is none like Me.
[10] Declaring from the beginning the latter end, And from of old that which hath not been done, Saying, ‘My counsel doth stand, And all My delight I do.’
[11] Calling from the east a ravenous bird, From a far land the man of My counsel, Yea, I have spoken, yea, I bring it in, I have formed it, yea, I do it.
[12] Hearken unto Me, ye mighty in heart, Who are far from righteousness.
[13] I have brought near My righteousness, It is not far off, And My salvation-it doth not tarry, And I have given in Zion salvation, To Israel My glory!
