NASB — Isaiah 54 — KJV

The Fertility of Zion

  1aShout for joy, O barren one, you who have borne no [child];
  Break forth into joyful shouting and cry aloud, you who have not travailed;
  For the sons of the bdesolate one [will be] cmore numerous
  Than the sons of the married woman,” says the LORD.
  2aEnlarge the place of your tent;
  IStretch out the curtains of your dwellings, spare not;
  Lengthen your bcords
  And strengthen your bpegs.
  3 “For you will aspread abroad to the right and to the left.
  And your Idescendants will bpossess nations
  And will cresettle the desolate cities.

  And do not feel humiliated, for you will not be disgraced;
  But you will forget the bshame of your youth,
  And the creproach of your widowhood you will remember no more.
  5 “For your ahusband is your Maker,
  Whose name is the LORD of hosts;
  And your bRedeemer is the Holy One of Israel,
  Who is called the cGod of all the earth.
  6 “For the LORD has called you,
  Like a wife aforsaken and grieved in spirit,
  Even like a wife of [one’s] youth when she is rejected,”
  Says your God.
  7IFor a abrief moment I forsook you,
  But with great compassion I will bgather you.
  8 “In an Iaoutburst of anger

  But with everlasting blovingkindness I will chave compassion on you,”
  Says the LORD your dRedeemer.

The prophet, for the comfort of the Gentiles, prophesieth the amplitude of their Church,

1 ¶ Sing, O barren, thou [that] didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou [that] didst not travail with child: for more [are] the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the LORD. 2 Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes; 3 For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.

their safety,

4 Fear not; for thou shalt not be ashamed: neither be thou confounded; for thou shalt not be put to shame: for thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt not remember the reproach of thy widowhood any more. 5 For thy Maker [is] thine husband; the LORD of hosts [is] his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.

their certain deliverance out of affliction,

6 For the LORD hath called thee as a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, and a wife of youth, when thou wast refused, saith thy God. 7 For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee. 8 In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the LORD thy Redeemer. 9 For this [is as] the waters of Noah unto me: for [as] I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee. 10 For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee.

their fair edification,

11 ¶ O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, [and] not comforted, behold, I will lay thy stones with fair colours, and lay thy foundations with sapphires. 12 And I will make thy windows of agates, and thy gates of carbuncles, and all thy borders of pleasant stones. 13 And all thy children [shall be] taught of the LORD; and great [shall be] the peace of thy children. 14 In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee.
