Teks -- Isaiah 45:1-25 (NET)
45:1 This is what the Lord says to his chosen one , to Cyrus , whose right hand I hold in order to subdue nations before him, and disarm kings , to open doors before him, so gates remain unclosed : 45:2 “I will go before you and level mountains . Bronze doors I will shatter and iron bars I will hack through . 45:3 I will give you hidden treasures , riches stashed away in secret places , so you may recognize that I am the Lord , the one who calls you by name , the God of Israel . 45:4 For the sake of my servant Jacob , Israel , my chosen one , I call you by name and give you a title of respect , even though you do not recognize me. 45:5 I am the Lord , I have no peer , there is no God but me. I arm you for battle, even though you do not recognize me. 45:6 I do this so people will recognize from east to west that there is no God but me; I am the Lord , I have no peer . 45:7 I am the one who forms light and creates darkness ; the one who brings about peace and creates calamity . I am the Lord , who accomplishes all these things. 45:8 O sky , rain down from above ! Let the clouds send down showers of deliverance ! Let the earth absorb it so salvation may grow , and deliverance may sprout up along with it. I , the Lord , create it.
The Lord Gives a Warning45:9 One who argues with his creator is in grave danger , one who is like a mere shard among the other shards on the ground ! The clay should not say to the potter , “What in the world are you doing ? Your work lacks skill !” 45:10 Danger awaits one who says to his father , “What in the world are you fathering ?” and to his mother , “What in the world are you bringing forth ?” 45:11 This is what the Lord says , the Holy One of Israel , the one who formed him, concerning things to come : “How dare you question me about my children ! How dare you tell me what to do with the work of my own hands ! 45:12 I made the earth , I created the people who live on it. It was me – my hands stretched out the sky , I give orders to all the heavenly lights . 45:13 It is me– I stir him up and commission him; I will make all his ways level. He will rebuild my city ; he will send my exiled people home, but not for a price or a bribe ,” says the Lord who commands armies .
The Lord is the Nations’ Only Hope45:14 This is what the Lord says : “The profit of Egypt and the revenue of Ethiopia , along with the Sabeans , those tall men , will be brought to you and become yours. They will walk behind you, coming along in chains . They will bow down to you and pray to you: ‘Truly God is with you; he has no peer ; there is no other God !’” 45:15 Yes , you are a God who keeps hidden , O God of Israel , deliverer ! 45:16 They will all be ashamed and embarrassed ; those who fashion idols will all be humiliated . 45:17 Israel will be delivered once and for all by the Lord ; you will never again be ashamed or humiliated . 45:18 For this is what the Lord says , the one who created the sky – he is the true God , the one who formed the earth and made it; he established it, he did not create it without order , he formed it to be inhabited – “I am the Lord , I have no peer . 45:19 I have not spoken in secret , in some hidden place . I did not tell Jacob’s descendants , ‘Seek me in vain !’ I am the Lord , the one who speaks honestly , who makes reliable announcements . 45:20 Gather together and come ! Approach together , you refugees from the nations ! Those who carry wooden idols know nothing , those who pray to a god that cannot deliver . 45:21 Tell me! Present the evidence ! Let them consult with one another ! Who predicted this in the past ? Who announced it beforehand ? Was it not I , the Lord ? I have no peer , there is no God but me, a God who vindicates and delivers ; there is none but me. 45:22 Turn to me so you can be delivered , all you who live in the earth’s remote regions ! For I am God , and I have no peer . 45:23 I solemnly make this oath – what I say is true and reliable : ‘Surely every knee will bow to me, every tongue will solemnly affirm ; 45:24 they will say about me, “Yes, the Lord is a powerful deliverer .”’” All who are angry at him will cower before him. 45:25 All the descendants of Israel will be vindicated by the Lord and will boast in him.
