ContextIsrael Promised Deliverance
12Listen to me, O Jacob and Israel, my called; I am he; I am the first, I also am the last. 13My hand also has laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand has spanned the heavens: when I call to them, they stand up together. 14All you, assemble yourselves, and hear; which among them has declared these things? The LORD has loved him: he will do his pleasure on Babylon, and his arm shall be on the Chaldeans. 15I, even I, have spoken; yes, I have called him: I have brought him, and he shall make his way prosperous. 16Come you near to me, hear you this; I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it was, there am I: and now the Lord GOD, and his Spirit, has sent me. 17Thus said the LORD, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the LORD your God which teaches you to profit, which leads you by the way that you should go. 18O that you had listened to my commandments! then had your peace been as a river, and your righteousness as the waves of the sea: 19Your seed also had been as the sand, and the offspring of your bowels like the gravel thereof; his name should not have been cut off nor destroyed from before me. 20Go you forth of Babylon, flee you from the Chaldeans, with a voice of singing declare you, tell this, utter it even to the end of the earth; say you, The LORD has redeemed his servant Jacob. 21And they thirsted not when he led them through the deserts: he caused the waters to flow out of the rock for them: he split the rock also, and the waters gushed out. 22There is no peace, said the LORD, to the wicked.
