6. (Chapter 48:1) Hearthis, O house of Jacob, who are called by the name of Israel, and of the waters of Judah you came

out , who swear by the name of

7. YHWH and in the God of Israel you remember, not in truth, nor in righteousness. (2.) because from the holy city they are

called, and upon

8. the God of Israel they lean; YHWH of Hosts is his name. (3.) The beginning things from then I have told them and from

my mouth they have gone out,

9. and I declared them; I did them suddenly, and they came to pass. (4.) On account of that {& &} I knew that you are

hard, and your neck is an iron sinew, [+h]

10. and your brow brass; (5.) I told you, from then, before it came I declared it to you: lest you should say, My idol has done


11. and my graven image, and my molten image, commanded them. (6.) You heard, all of this and have you not told them ?

I have caused you to hear new things from this time,

12. even Nazareth, which you did not know. (7.) They are created now, and not from then; and before the day you did not

hear of them; lest you should say, Behold,

13.1 already knew them. (8.) And also, you did not hear; also, you did not know; also your ear was not open from then: for I

knew that

14. you would be very treacherous and were called a transgressor from the womb. (9.). For the sake of my name I will put

afar off my anger, and I will restrain my praise for you, so as not to

15. cut you off. (10.) Behold, I have refined you, but not with silver; [Q = when I showed mercy to you] [m = I have chosen

you] in the furnace of affliction. (11.) For my own sake, even for my own sake,

16. 1 will do it: {&because&} how can I profane it [m..+name]? and I will not give my glory to another. (PP)

17. (12.) Listen to this, Jacob and Israel, my called; I am he; I am the first, even I am the last. (13.) Yes. My hand also has

laid the foundation of

18. the earth, and my right hand has spanned the heavens: I call to them, they stand up together. (14.) All of them gather

together and they hear;

19. who is among them and has declared these things? YHWH loved him: he will do my desires on {&waw&} Babylon, and

his arm shall be on the Chaldeans. (15.) I, even I,

20. have spoken; yes, I have called him: I have brought him, and he shall make his way prosperous. (16.) Draw near to me,

[+erasure+] hearthis;

21.1 have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it was, I was there: and now the Lord YHWH, and his

Spirit, has sent me. [Read my comments on this important verse](PP)


22. (1 7) Thus says YHWH your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am YHWH your God your teacher for profit,

23. [Aramaic] the One who leads you by the way that you should go in it. (18.) And you did not listen to my commandments!

then would your peace be as a river, and your righteousness

24. as the waves of the sea: (19.) Your seed also would have been as the sand, and the offspring like the gravel of it; their

name should not have been cut off nor destroyed .from before me. (PP)


25. (20.) Go out of Babylon, flee from the Chaldeans, with a voice of singing declare it, tell this [m..+letitgo out+] to the end

of the earth;

26. say, The LORD has redeemed his servant Jacob. (21 .) And they did not thirst in the deserts when he led them : he

caused the waters [Q= to gush out] [m.. to flow out] from the rock for them:

27. he split the rock, and the waters gushed out. (22.) There is no peace, says YHWH, for the wicked. (PP)
