Behold, all they who are enraged and inflamed against you shall be put to shame and confounded; they who strive against you shall be as nothing and shall perish.
You shall seek those who contend with you but shall not find them; they who war against you shall be as nothing, as nothing at all.
For I the Master your Everlasting Almighty Yahuwah hold your right hand; I am the Master, Who says to you, Fear not; I will help you!
Fear not, you worm Jacob, you men of Israel! I will help you, says the Master; your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel.
Behold, I will make you to be a new, sharp, threshing instrument which has teeth; you shall thresh the mountains and beat them small, and shall make the hills like chaff.
You shall winnow them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the tempest or whirlwind shall scatter them. And you shall rejoice in the Master, you shall glory in the Holy One of Israel.
The poor and needy are seeking water when there is none; their tongues are parched with thirst. I the Master will answer them; I, the Everlasting Almighty Yahuwah of Israel, will not forsake them.
I will open rivers on the bare heights, and fountains in the midst of the valleys; I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.
I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the acacia, the myrtle, and the wild olive; I will set the cypress in the desert, the plane [tree] and the pine [tree] together,
That men may see and know and consider and understand together that the hand of the Master has done this, that the Holy One of Israel has created it.
[You idols made by men’s hands, prove your divinity!] Produce your cause [set forth your case], says the Master. Bring forth your strong proofs, says the King of Jacob.
Let them bring them forth and tell us what is to happen. Let them tell us the former things, what they are, that we may consider them and know the outcome of them; or declare to us the things to come.
Tell us the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that you are gods; yes, do good or do evil [something or other], that we may stare in astonishment and be dismayed as we behold [the miracle] together!
