Isaiah 66 (WEBP)

[1] Yahweh says: “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. What kind of house will you build to me? Where will I rest?
[2] For my hand has made all these things, and so all these things came to be,” says Yahweh: “but I will look to this man, even to he who is poor and of a contrite spirit, and who trembles at my word.
[3] He who kills an ox is as he who kills a man; he who sacrifices a lamb, as he who breaks a dog’s neck; he who offers an offering, as he who offers pig’s blood; he who burns frankincense, as he who blesses an idol. Yes, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delights in their abominations.
[4] I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears on them, because when I called, no one answered; when I spoke, they didn’t listen, but they did that which was evil in my eyes, and chose that in which I didn’t delight.”
[5] Hear Yahweh’s word, you who tremble at his word: “Your brothers who hate you, who cast you out for my name’s sake, have said, ‘Let Yahweh be glorified, that we may see your joy;’ but it is those who shall be disappointed.
[6] A voice of tumult from the city, a voice from the temple, a voice of Yahweh that repays his enemies what they deserve.
[7] “Before she travailed, she gave birth. Before her pain came, she delivered a son.
[8] Who has heard of such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall a land be born in one day? Shall a nation be born at once? For as soon as Zion travailed, she gave birth to her children.
[9] Shall I bring to the birth, and not cause to be delivered?” says Yahweh. “Shall I who cause to give birth shut the womb?” says your God.
[10] “Rejoice with Jerusalem, and be glad for her, all you who love her. Rejoice for joy with her, all you who mourn over her;
[11] that you may nurse and be satisfied at the comforting breasts; that you may drink deeply, and be delighted with the abundance of her glory.”
[12] For Yahweh says, “Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the nations like an overflowing stream, and you will nurse. You will be carried on her side, and will be dandled on her knees.
[13] As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you. You will be comforted in Jerusalem.”
[14] You will see it, and your heart shall rejoice, and your bones will flourish like the tender grass. Yahweh’s hand will be known among his servants; and he will have indignation against his enemies.
[15] For, behold, Yahweh will come with fire, and his chariots will be like the whirlwind; to render his anger with fierceness, and his rebuke with flames of fire.
[16] For Yahweh will execute judgment by fire and by his sword on all flesh; and those slain by Yahweh will be many.
[17] “Those who sanctify themselves and purify themselves to go to the gardens, following one in the middle, eating pig’s meat, abominable things, and the mouse, they shall come to an end together,” says Yahweh.
[18] “For I know their works and their thoughts. The time comes that I will gather all nations and languages, and they will come, and will see my glory.
[19] “I will set a sign among them, and I will send those who escape of them to the nations, to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, who draw the bow, to Tubal and Javan, to far-away islands, who have not heard my fame, nor have seen my glory; and they shall declare my glory among the nations.
[20] They shall bring all your brothers out of all the nations for an offering to Yahweh, on horses, in chariots, in litters, on mules, and on camels, to my holy mountain Jerusalem, says Yahweh, as the children of Israel bring their offering in a clean vessel into Yahweh’s house.
[21] Of them I will also select priests and Levites,” says Yahweh.
[22] “For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me,” says Yahweh, “so your offspring and your name shall remain.
[23] It shall happen that from one new moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, all flesh will come to worship before me,” says Yahweh.
[24] “They will go out, and look at the dead bodies of the men who have transgressed against me; for their worm will not die, nor will their fire be quenched, and they will be loathsome to all mankind.”

King James w/Strong’s #s

Isaiah 66 (KJVS)

[1] Thus saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068, The heaven H8064 [is] my throne H3678, and the earth H776 [is] my footstool H7272 H1916: where [is] the house H1004 that ye build H1129 (8799) unto me? and where [is] the place H4725 of my rest H4496?
[2] For all those [things] hath mine hand H3027 made H6213 (8804), and all those [things] have been, saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068: but to this [man] will I look H5027 (8686), [even] to [him that is] poor H6041 and of a contrite H5223 spirit H7307, and trembleth H2730 at my word H1697.
[3] He that killeth H7819 (8802) an ox H7794 [is as if] he slew H5221 (8688) a man H376; he that sacrificeth H2076 (8802) a lamb H7716, [as if] he cut off H6202 a dog’s H3611 neck H6202 (8802); he that offereth H5927 (8688) an oblation H4503, [as if he offered] swine’s H2386 blood H1818; he that burneth H2142 (8688) incense H3828, [as if] he blessed H1288 (8764) an idol H205. Yea, they have chosen H977 (8804) their own ways H1870, and their soul H5315 delighteth H2654 (8804) in their abominations H8251.
[4] I also will choose H977 (8799) their delusions H8586, and will bring H935 (8686) their fears H4035 upon them; because when I called H7121 (8804), none did answer H6030 (8802); when I spake H1696 (8765), they did not hear H8085 (8804): but they did H6213 (8799) evil H7451 before mine eyes H5869, and chose H977 (8804) [that] in which I delighted H2654 (8804) not.
[5] Hear H8085 (8798) the word H1697 of the LORD H3068, ye that tremble H2730 at his word H1697; Your brethren H251 that hated H8130 (8802) you, that cast you out H5077 (8764) for my name’s H8034 sake, said H559 (8804), Let the LORD H3068 be glorified H3513 (8799): but he shall appear H7200 (8737) to your joy H8057, and they shall be ashamed H954 (8799).
[6] A voice H6963 of noise H7588 from the city H5892, a voice H6963 from the temple H1964, a voice H6963 of the LORD H3068 that rendereth H7999 (8764) recompence H1576 to his enemies H341 (8802).
[7] Before she travailed H2342 (8799), she brought forth H3205 (8804); before her pain H2256 came H935 (8799), she was delivered H4422 (8689) of a man child H2145.
[8] Who hath heard H8085 (8804) such a thing? who hath seen H7200 (8804) such things? Shall the earth H776 be made to bring forth H2342 (8714) in one H259 day H3117? [or] shall a nation H1471 be born H3205 (8735) at once H6471? for as soon as H1571 Zion H6726 travailed H2342 (8804), she brought forth H3205 (8804) her children H1121.
[9] Shall I bring to the birth H7665 (8686), and not cause to bring forth H3205 (8686)? saith H559 (8799) the LORD H3068: shall I H589 cause to bring forth H3205 (8688), and shut H6113 (8804) [the womb]? saith H559 (8804) thy God H430.
[10] Rejoice H8055 (8798) ye with Jerusalem H3389, and be glad H1523 (8798) with her, all ye that love H157 (8802) her: rejoice H7797 (8798) for joy H4885 with her, all ye that mourn H56 (8693) for her:
[11] That ye may suck H3243 (8799), and be satisfied H7646 (8804) with the breasts H7699 of her consolations H8575; that ye may milk out H4711 (8799), and be delighted H6026 (8694) with the abundance H2123 of her glory H3519.
[12] For thus saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068, Behold, I will extend H5186 (8802) peace H7965 to her like a river H5104, and the glory H3519 of the Gentiles H1471 like a flowing H7857 (8802) stream H5158: then shall ye suck H3243 (8804), ye shall be borne H5375 (8735) upon [her] sides H6654, and be dandled H8173 (8746) upon [her] knees H1290.
[13] As one H376 whom his mother H517 comforteth H5162 (8762), so will I comfort H5162 (8762) you; and ye shall be comforted H5162 (8792) in Jerusalem H3389.
[14] And when ye see H7200 (8804) [this], your heart H3820 shall rejoice H7797 (8804), and your bones H6106 shall flourish H6524 (8799) like an herb H1877: and the hand H3027 of the LORD H3068 shall be known H3045 (8738) toward his servants H5650, and [his] indignation H2194 (8804) toward his enemies H341 (8802).
[15] For, behold, the LORD H3068 will come H935 (8799) with fire H784, and with his chariots H4818 like a whirlwind H5492, to render H7725 (8687) his anger H639 with fury H2534, and his rebuke H1606 with flames H3851 of fire H784.
[16] For by fire H784 and by his sword H2719 will the LORD H3068 plead H8199 (8737) with all flesh H1320: and the slain H2491 of the LORD H3068 shall be many H7231 (8804).
[17] They that sanctify H6942 (8693) themselves, and purify H2891 (8693) themselves in the gardens H1593 behind H310 one H259 [tree] in the midst H8432, eating H398 (8802) swine’s H2386 flesh H1320, and the abomination H8263, and the mouse H5909, shall be consumed H5486 (8799) together H3162, saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068.
[18] For I [know] their works H4639 and their thoughts H4284: it shall come H935 (8802), that I will gather H6908 (8763) all nations H1471 and tongues H3956; and they shall come H935 (8804), and see H7200 (8804) my glory H3519.
[19] And I will set H7760 (8804) a sign H226 among them, and I will send H7971 (8765) those that escape H6412 of them unto the nations H1471, [to] Tarshish H8659, Pul H6322, and Lud H3865, that draw H4900 (8802) the bow H7198, [to] Tubal H8422, and Javan H3120, [to] the isles H339 afar off H7350, that have not heard H8085 (8804) my fame H8088, neither have seen H7200 (8804) my glory H3519; and they shall declare H5046 (8689) my glory H3519 among the Gentiles H1471.
[20] And they shall bring H935 (8689) all your brethren H251 [for] an offering H4503 unto the LORD H3068 out of all nations H1471 upon horses H5483, and in chariots H7393, and in litters H6632, and upon mules H6505, and upon swift beasts H3753, to my holy H6944 mountain H2022 Jerusalem H3389, saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068, as the children H1121 of Israel H3478 bring H935 (8686) an offering H4503 in a clean H2889 vessel H3627 into the house H1004 of the LORD H3068.
[21] And I will also take H3947 (8799) of them for priests H3548 [and] for Levites H3881, saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068.
[22] For as the new H2319 heavens H8064 and the new H2319 earth H776, which I will make H6213 (8802), shall remain H5975 (8802) before H6440 me, saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068, so shall your seed H2233 and your name H8034 remain H5975 (8799).
[23] And it shall come to pass, [that] from H1767 one new moon H2320 to another H2320, and from H1767 one sabbath H7676 to another H7676, shall all flesh H1320 come H935 (8799) to worship H7812 (8692) before H6440 me, saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068.
[24] And they shall go forth H3318 (8804), and look H7200 (8804) upon the carcases H6297 of the men H582 that have transgressed H6586 (8802) against me: for their worm H8438 shall not die H4191 (8799), neither shall their fire H784 be quenched H3518 (8799); and they shall be an abhorring H1860 unto all flesh H1320.

Young’s Literal Translation

Isaiah 66 (YLT)

[1] Thus said Jehovah: The heavens are My throne, And the earth My footstool, Where is this-the house that ye build for Me? And where is this-the place-My rest?
[2] And all these My hand hath made, And all these things are, An affirmation of Jehovah! And unto this one I look attentively, Unto the humble and bruised in spirit, And who is trembling at My word.
[3] Whoso slaughtereth the ox smiteth a man, Whoso sacrificeth the lamb beheadeth a dog, Whoso is bringing up a present- The blood of a sow, Whoso is making mention of frankincense, Is blessing iniquity. Yea, they have fixed on their own ways, And in their abominations their soul hath delighted.
[4] I also-I fix on their vexations, And their fears I bring in to them, Because I have called, and there is none answering, I spake, and they have not hearkened, And they do the evil things in Mine eyes, And on that which I desired not-fixed.
[5] Hear a word of Jehovah, Ye who are trembling unto His word, Said have your brethren who are hating you, Who are driving you out, for My name’s sake: ‘Honoured is Jehovah, and we look on your joy,’ But they are ashamed.
[6] A voice of noise is from the city, a voice from the temple, The voice of Jehovah, giving recompence to His enemies.
[7] Before she is pained she hath brought forth, Before a pang cometh to her, She hath delivered a male.
[8] Who hath heard anything like this? Who hath seen anything like these? Is earth caused to bring forth in one day? Born is a nation at once? For she hath been pained, Zion also hath borne her sons.
[9] ‘Do I bring to the birth, And not cause to bring forth?’ saith Jehovah, ‘Am not I He who is causing to beget? I have also restrained,’ said thy God.
[10] Rejoice ye with Jerusalem, And be glad in her, all ye loving her, Rejoice ye with her for joy, All ye are mourning for her,
[11] So that ye suck, and have been satisfied, From the breast of her consolations, So that ye wring out, and have delighted yourselves From the abundance of her honour.
[12] For thus said Jehovah: ‘Lo, I am stretching out to her peace as a river, And as an overflowing stream the honour of nations, And ye have sucked, on the side ye are carried, And on the knees ye are dandled.
[13] As one whom his mother comforteth, so do I comfort you, Yea, in Jerusalem ye are comforted.
[14] And ye have seen, and rejoiced hath your heart, And your bones as tender grass do flourish, And the hand of Jehovah hath been known unto His servants, And He hath been indignant with His enemies.
[15] For, lo, Jehovah in fire cometh, And as a hurricane His chariots, To refresh in fury His anger, And His rebuke in flames of fire.
[16] For by fire and by His sword, Doth Jehovah do judgment with all flesh. And many have been Jehovah’s pierced ones.’
[17] Those sanctifying and cleansing themselves at the gardens, After Ahad in the midst, Eating flesh of the sow, And of the abomination, and of the mouse, Together are consumed, An affirmation of Jehovah.
[18] And I-their works and their thoughts, I come to gather all the nations and tongues, And they have come and seen My honour.
[19] And I have set among them a sign, And have sent out of them those escaping unto the nations, (Tarshish, Pul, and Lud, drawing bow, Tubal and Javan, the isles that are far off,) Who have not heard My fame, nor seen Mine honour, And they have declared Mine honour among nations.
[20] And they have brought all your brethren out of all the nations, A present to Jehovah, On horses, and on chariot, and on litters, And on mules, and on dromedaries, Unto My holy mountain Jerusalem, said Jehovah, As the sons of Israel bring the present in a clean vessel, Into the house of Jehovah.
[21] And also of them I take for priests, For Levites, said Jehovah.
[22] For, as the new heavens and the new earth that I am making, Are standing before Me, An affirmation of Jehovah! So remain doth your seed and your name.
[23] And it hath been from month to month, And from sabbath to sabbath, Come do all flesh to bow themselves before Me, Said Jehovah.
[24] And they have gone forth, And looked on the carcases of the men Who are transgressing against me, For their worm dieth not, And their fire is not quenched, And they have been an abhorrence to all flesh!
