Isaiah 65 (WEBP)

[1] “I am inquired of by those who didn’t ask. I am found by those who didn’t seek me. I said, ‘See me, see me,’ to a nation that was not called by my name.
[2] I have spread out my hands all day to a rebellious people, who walk in a way that is not good, after their own thoughts;
[3] a people who provoke me to my face continually, sacrificing in gardens, and burning incense on bricks;
[4] who sit among the graves, and spend nights in secret places; who eat pig’s meat, and broth of abominable things is in their vessels;
[5] who say, ‘Stay by yourself, don’t come near to me, for I am holier than you.’ These are smoke in my nose, a fire that burns all day.
[6] “Behold, it is written before me: I will not keep silence, but will repay, yes, I will repay into their bosom
[7] your own iniquities and the iniquities of your fathers together”, says Yahweh, “who have burned incense on the mountains, and blasphemed me on the hills. Therefore I will first measure their work into their bosom.”
[8] Yahweh says, “As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one says, ‘Don’t destroy it, for a blessing is in it:’ so I will do for my servants’ sake, that I may not destroy them all.
[9] I will bring offspring out of Jacob, and out of Judah an inheritor of my mountains. My chosen will inherit it, and my servants will dwell there.
[10] Sharon will be a fold of flocks, and the valley of Achor a place for herds to lie down in, for my people who have sought me.
[11] “But you who forsake Yahweh, who forget my holy mountain, who prepare a table for Fortune, and who fill up mixed wine to Destiny;
[12] I will destine you to the sword, and you will all bow down to the slaughter; because when I called, you didn’t answer. When I spoke, you didn’t listen; but you did that which was evil in my eyes, and chose that in which I didn’t delight.”
[13] Therefore the Lord Yahweh says, “Behold, my servants will eat, but you will be hungry; behold, my servants will drink, but you will be thirsty. Behold, my servants will rejoice, but you will be disappointed.
[14] Behold, my servants will sing for joy of heart, but you will cry for sorrow of heart, and will wail for anguish of spirit.
[15] You will leave your name for a curse to my chosen, and the Lord Yahweh will kill you. He will call his servants by another name,
[16] so that he who blesses himself in the earth will bless himself in the God of truth; and he who swears in the earth will swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are hidden from my eyes.
[17] “For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former things will not be remembered, nor come into mind.
[18] But be glad and rejoice forever in that which I create; for, behold, I create Jerusalem to be a delight, and her people a joy.
[19] I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and delight in my people; and the voice of weeping and the voice of crying will be heard in her no more.
[20] “No more will there be an infant who only lives a few days, nor an old man who has not filled his days; for the child will die one hundred years old, and the sinner being one hundred years old will be accursed.
[21] They will build houses and inhabit them. They will plant vineyards and eat their fruit.
[22] They will not build and another inhabit. They will not plant and another eat; for the days of my people will be like the days of a tree, and my chosen will long enjoy the work of their hands.
[23] They will not labor in vain nor give birth for calamity; for they are the offspring of Yahweh’s blessed and their descendants with them.
[24] It will happen that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.
[25] The wolf and the lamb will feed together. The lion will eat straw like the ox. Dust will be the serpent’s food. They will not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain,” says Yahweh.

Isaiah 65 (KJVS)

[1] I am sought H1875 (8738) of [them that] asked H7592 (8804) not H3808 [for me]; I am found H4672 (8738) of [them that] sought H1245 (8765) me not H3808: I said H559 (8804), Behold me, behold me, unto a nation H1471 [that] was not called H7121 (8795) by my name H8034.
[2] I have spread out H6566 (8765) my hands H3027 all the day H3117 unto a rebellious H5637 (8802) people H5971, which walketh H1980 (8802) in a way H1870 [that was] not good H2896, after H310 their own thoughts H4284;
[3] A people H5971 that provoketh me to anger H3707 (8688) continually H8548 to my face H6440; that sacrificeth H2076 (8802) in gardens H1593, and burneth incense H6999 (8764) upon altars of brick H3843;
[4] Which remain H3427 (8802) among the graves H6913, and lodge H3885 (8799) in the monuments H5341 (8803), which eat H398 (8802) swine’s H2386 flesh H1320, and broth H4839 (8675) H6564 of abominable H6292 [things is in] their vessels H3627;
[5] Which say H559 (8802), Stand H7126 (8798) by thyself, come not near H5066 (8799) to me; for I am holier H6942 (8804) than thou. These [are] a smoke H6227 in my nose H639, a fire H784 that burneth H3344 (8802) all the day H3117.
[6] Behold, [it is] written H3789 (8803) before H6440 me: I will not keep silence H2814 (8799), but will recompense H7999 (8765), even recompense H7999 (8765) into their bosom H2436,
[7] Your iniquities H5771, and the iniquities H5771 of your fathers H1 together H3162, saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068, which have burned incense H6999 (8765) upon the mountains H2022, and blasphemed H2778 (8765) me upon the hills H1389: therefore will I measure H4058 (8804) their former H7223 work H6468 into their bosom H2436.
[8] Thus saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068, As the new wine H8492 is found H4672 (8735) in the cluster H811, and [one] saith H559 (8804), Destroy H7843 (8686) it not; for a blessing H1293 [is] in it: so will I do H6213 (8799) for my servants H5650’ sakes, that I may not destroy H7843 (8687) them all.
[9] And I will bring forth H3318 (8689) a seed H2233 out of Jacob H3290, and out of Judah H3063 an inheritor H3423 (8802) of my mountains H2022: and mine elect H972 shall inherit H3423 (8804) it, and my servants H5650 shall dwell H7931 (8799) there.
[10] And Sharon H8289 shall be a fold H5116 of flocks H6629, and the valley H6010 of Achor H5911 a place for the herds H1241 to lie down in H7258, for my people H5971 that have sought H1875 (8804) me.
[11] But ye [are] they that forsake H5800 (8802) the LORD H3068, that forget H7913 my holy H6944 mountain H2022, that prepare H6186 (8802) a table H7979 for that troop H1409 (8677) H1408, and that furnish H4390 (8764) the drink offering H4469 unto that number H4507.
[12] Therefore will I number H4487 (8804) you to the sword H2719, and ye shall all bow down H3766 (8799) to the slaughter H2874: because when I called H7121 (8804), ye did not answer H6030 (8804); when I spake H1696 (8765), ye did not hear H8085 (8804); but did H6213 (8799) evil H7451 before mine eyes H5869, and did choose H977 (8804) [that] wherein I delighted H2654 (8804) not.
[13] Therefore thus saith H559 (8804) the Lord H136 GOD H3069, Behold, my servants H5650 shall eat H398 (8799), but ye shall be hungry H7456 (8799): behold, my servants H5650 shall drink H8354 (8799), but ye shall be thirsty H6770 (8799): behold, my servants H5650 shall rejoice H8055 (8799), but ye shall be ashamed H954 (8799):
[14] Behold, my servants H5650 shall sing H7442 (8799) for joy H2898 of heart H3820, but ye shall cry H6817 (8799) for sorrow H3511 of heart H3820, and shall howl H3213 (8686) for vexation H7667 of spirit H7307.
[15] And ye shall leave H3240 (8689) your name H8034 for a curse H7621 unto my chosen H972: for the Lord H136 GOD H3069 shall slay H4191 (8689) thee, and call H7121 (8799) his servants H5650 by another H312 name H8034:
[16] That he who blesseth H1288 (8693) himself in the earth H776 shall bless H1288 (8691) himself in the God H430 of truth H543; and he that sweareth H7650 (8737) in the earth H776 shall swear H7650 (8735) by the God H430 of truth H543; because the former H7223 troubles H6869 are forgotten H7911 (8738), and because they are hid H5641 (8738) from mine eyes H5869.
[17] For, behold, I create H1254 (8802) new H2319 heavens H8064 and a new H2319 earth H776: and the former H7223 shall not be remembered H2142 (8735), nor come H5927 (8799) into mind H3820.
[18] But be ye glad H7797 (8798) and rejoice H1523 (8798) for ever H5703 [in that] which I create H1254 (8802): for, behold, I create H1254 (8802) Jerusalem H3389 a rejoicing H1525, and her people H5971 a joy H4885.
[19] And I will rejoice H1523 (8804) in Jerusalem H3389, and joy H7797 (8804) in my people H5971: and the voice H6963 of weeping H1065 shall be no more heard H8085 (8735) in her, nor the voice H6963 of crying H2201.
[20] There shall be no more thence an infant H5764 of days H3117, nor an old man H2205 that hath not filled H4390 (8762) his days H3117: for the child H5288 shall die H4191 (8799) an hundred H3967 years H8141 old H1121; but the sinner H2398 (8802) [being] an hundred H3967 years H8141 old H1121 shall be accursed H7043 (8792).
[21] And they shall build H1129 (8804) houses H1004, and inhabit H3427 (8804) [them]; and they shall plant H5193 (8804) vineyards H3754, and eat H398 (8804) the fruit H6529 of them.
[22] They shall not build H1129 (8799), and another H312 inhabit H3427 (8799); they shall not plant H5193 (8799), and another H312 eat H398 (8799): for as the days H3117 of a tree H6086 [are] the days H3117 of my people H5971, and mine elect H972 shall long enjoy H1086 (8762) the work H4639 of their hands H3027.
[23] They shall not labour H3021 (8799) in vain H7385, nor bring forth H3205 (8799) for trouble H928; for they [are] the seed H2233 of the blessed H1288 (8803) of the LORD H3068, and their offspring H6631 with them.
[24] And it shall come to pass, that before they call H7121 (8799), I will answer H6030 (8799); and while they are yet speaking H1696 (8764), I will hear H8085 (8799).
[25] The wolf H2061 and the lamb H2924 shall feed H7462 (8799) together H259, and the lion H738 shall eat H398 (8799) straw H8401 like the bullock H1241: and dust H6083 [shall be] the serpent’s H5175 meat H3899. They shall not hurt H7489 (8686) nor destroy H7843 (8686) in all my holy H6944 mountain H2022, saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068.

Young’s Literal Translation

Isaiah 65 (YLT)

[1] I have been inquired of by those who asked not, I have been found by those who sought Me not, I have said, ‘Behold Me, behold Me,’ Unto a nation not calling in My name.
[2] I have spread out My hands all the day Unto an apostate people, Who are going in the way not good after their own thoughts.
[3] The people who are provoking Me to anger, To My face continually, Sacrificing in gardens, and making perfume on the bricks:
[4] Who are dwelling among sepulchres, And lodge in reserved places, Who are eating flesh of the sow, And a piece of abominable things-their vessels.
[5] Who are saying, ‘Keep to thyself, come not nigh to me, For I have declared thee unholy.’ These are a smoke in Mine anger, A fire burning all the day.
[6] Lo, it is written before Me: ‘I am not silent, but have recompensed; And I have recompensed into their bosom,
[7] Your iniquities, and the iniquities of your fathers together, said Jehovah, Who have made perfume on the mountains, And on the heights have reproached Me, And I have measured their former work into their bosom.’
[8] Thus said Jehovah: As the new wine is found in the cluster, And one hath said, ‘Destroy it not for a blessing is in it,’ So I do for My servants’ sake, not to destroy the whole.
[9] And I have brought out from Jacob a seed, And from Judah a possessor of My mount, And possess it do My chosen ones, And My servants do dwell there.
[10] And Sharon hath been for the habitation of a flock, And the valley of Achor for the lying down of a herd, For My people who have sought Me.
[11] And ye are those forsaking Jehovah, Who are forgetting My holy mountain, Who are setting in array for Gad a table, And who are filling for Meni a mixture.
[12] And I have numbered you for the sword, And all of you for slaughter bow down, Because I called, and ye have not answered, I have spoken, and ye have not hearkened, And ye do the evil thing in Mine eyes, And on that which I desired not-fixed.
[13] Therefore, thus said the Lord Jehovah: Lo, My servants do eat, and ye do hunger, Lo, My servants do drink, and ye do thirst, Lo, My servants rejoice, and ye are ashamed,
[14] Lo, My servants sing from joy of heart, And ye cry from pain of heart, And from breaking of spirit ye do howl.
[15] And ye have left your name For an oath for My chosen ones, And the Lord Jehovah hath put thee to death, And to His servants He giveth another name.
[16] So that he who is blessing himself in the earth, Doth bless himself In the God of faithfulness, And he who is swearing in the earth, Doth swear by the God of faithfulness, Because the former distresses have been forgotten, And because they have been hid from Mine eyes.
[17] For, lo, I am creating new heavens, and a new earth, And the former things are not remembered, Nor do they ascend on the heart.
[18] But joy ye, and rejoice for ever, that I am Creator, For, lo, I am creating Jerusalem a rejoicing, And her people a joy.
[19] And I have rejoiced in Jerusalem, And have joyed in My people, And not heard in her any more Is the voice of weeping, and the voice of crying.
[20] There is not thence any more a suckling of days, And an aged man who doth not complete his days, For the youth a hundred years old dieth, And the sinner, a hundred years old, is lightly esteemed.
[21] And they have built houses, and inhabited, And planted vineyards, and eaten their fruit.
[22] They do not build, and another inhabit, They do not plant, and another eat, For as the days of a tree are the days of My people, And the work of their hands wear out do My chosen ones.
[23] They labour not for a vain thing, Nor do they bring forth for trouble, For the seed of the blessed of Jehovah are they, And their offspring with them.
[24] And it hath come to pass, They do not yet call, and I answer, They are yet speaking, and I hear.
[25] Wolf and lamb do feed as one, And a lion as an ox eateth straw, As to the serpent-dust is its food, They do no evil, nor destroy, In all My holy mountain, said Jehovah!
