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 the
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 lodge in the secret
places; who eat pig's flesh, and broth of abominable things is in
their vessels; 5 who say, Stand by yourself, don't come near
to me, for I am holier than you. These are a smoke in my nose, a
fire that burns all the day.

6 "Behold, it is written before me: I will not keep silence, but
will recompense, yes, I will recompense 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 will I first
measure their work into their bosom."

8 Thus says Yahweh, "As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one says, 'Don't destroy
it, for a blessing is in it:' so will I do for my servants' sake,
that I may not destroy them all. 9 I will bring forth a seed
out of Jacob, and out of Judah an inheritor of my mountains; and
my chosen shall inherit it, and my servants shall dwell there.
10 Sharon shall be a fold of flocks, and the valley of Achor
a place for herds to lie down in, for my people who have sought

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 shall
all bow down to the slaughter; because when I called, you did not
answer; when I spoke, you did not hear; but you did that which
was evil in my eyes, and chose that in which I didn't delight."

13 Therefore thus says the Lord Yahweh, "Behold, my servants shall
eat, but you shall be hungry; behold, my servants shall drink,
but you shall be thirsty; behold, my servants shall rejoice, but
you shall be disappointed; 14 behold, my servants shall sing
for joy of heart, but you shall cry for sorrow of heart, and
shall wail for anguish of spirit. 15 You shall leave your name for a curse to my chosen; and the
Lord Yahweh will kill you; and he will call his servants by
another name: 16 so that he who blesses himself in the earth
shall bless himself in the God of truth; and he who swears in the
earth shall swear by the God of truth; because the former
troubles are forgotten, and because they are hid from my eyes.

17 "For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the
former things shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.
18 But be you glad and rejoice forever in that which I
create; for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her
people a joy. 19 I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my
people; and there shall be heard in her no more the voice of
weeping and the voice of crying.

20 "There shall be no more there an infant of days, nor an old man
who has not filled his days; for the child shall die one hundred
years old, and the sinner being one hundred years old shall be
accursed. 21 They shall build houses, and inhabit them; and
they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. 22
They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant,
and another eat: for as the days of a tree shall be the days of
my people, and my chosen shall long enjoy the work of their
hands. 23 They shall not labor in vain, nor bring forth for
calamity; for they are the seed of the blessed of Yahweh, and
their offspring with them. 24 It shall happen that, before
they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will
hear. 25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the
lion shall eat straw like the ox; and dust shall be the serpent's
food. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain,"
says Yahweh.
