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.”

[1] Thus saith () the LORD , The heaven [is] my throne , and the earth [is] my footstool : where [is] the house that ye build () unto me? and where [is] the place of my rest ?
[2] For all those [things] hath mine hand made (), and all those [things] have been, saith () the LORD : but to this [man] will I look (), [even] to [him that is] poor and of a contrite spirit , and trembleth at my word .
[3] He that killeth () an ox [is as if] he slew () a man ; he that sacrificeth () a lamb , [as if] he cut off a dog’s neck (); he that offereth () an oblation , [as if he offered] swine’s blood ; he that burneth () incense , [as if] he blessed () an idol . Yea, they have chosen () their own ways , and their soul delighteth () in their abominations .
[4] I also will choose () their delusions , and will bring () their fears upon them; because when I called (), none did answer (); when I spake (), they did not hear (): but they did () evil before mine eyes , and chose () [that] in which I delighted () not.
[5] Hear () the word of the LORD , ye that tremble at his word ; Your brethren that hated () you, that cast you out () for my name’s sake, said (), Let the LORD be glorified (): but he shall appear () to your joy , and they shall be ashamed ().
[6] A voice of noise from the city , a voice from the temple , a voice of the LORD that rendereth () recompence to his enemies ().

[9] Shall I bring to the birth (), and not cause to bring forth ()? saith () the LORD : shall I cause to bring forth (), and shut () [the womb]? saith () thy God .
[10] Rejoice () ye with Jerusalem , and be glad () with her, all ye that love () her: rejoice () for joy with her, all ye that mourn () for her:
[11] That ye may suck (), and be satisfied () with the breasts of her consolations ; that ye may milk out (), and be delighted () with the abundance of her glory .

[13] As one whom his mother comforteth (), so will I comfort () you; and ye shall be comforted () in Jerusalem .

[20] And they shall bring () all your brethren [for] an offering unto the LORD out of all nations upon horses , and in chariots , and in litters , and upon mules , and upon swift beasts , to my holy mountain Jerusalem , saith () the LORD , as the children of Israel bring () an offering in a clean vessel into the house of the LORD .
[21] And I will also take () of them for priests [and] for Levites , saith () the LORD .
[22] For as the new heavens and the new earth , which I will make (), shall remain () before me, saith () the LORD , so shall your seed and your name remain ().

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!
