NASB — Isaiah 65 — KJV

A Rebellious People

  1 “I permitted Myself to be sought by athose who did not ask [for Me];
  I permitted Myself to be found by those who did not seek Me.
  I said, ‘Here am I, here am I,’
  To a nation which bdid not call on My name.
  2aI have spread out My hands all day long to a brebellious people,
  Who walk [in] the way which is not good, Ifollowing their own cthoughts,
  3 A people who continually aprovoke Me to My face,
  Offering sacrifices in bgardens and cburning incense on bricks;
  4 Who sit among graves and spend the night in secret places;
  Who aeat swine’s flesh,
  And the broth of unclean meat is [in] their pots.
  5 “Who say, ‘aKeep to yourself, do not come near me,
  For I am holier than you!’
  These are smoke in My Inostrils,
  A fire that burns all the day.
  6 “Behold, it is written before Me,
  I will anot keep silent, but bI will repay;
  I will even repay into their bosom,
  7 Both Itheir own ainiquities and the iniquities of their fathers together,” says the LORD.
  “Because they have bburned incense on the mountains
  And cscorned Me on the hills,
  Therefore I will dmeasure their former work into their bosom.”

8 ¶ Thus says the LORD,
  “As the new wine is found in the cluster,
  And one says, ‘Do not destroy it, for there is Ibenefit in it,’
  So I will act on behalf of My servants
  In order anot to destroy IIall of them.
  9 “I will bring forth aoffspring from Jacob,
  And an bheir of My mountains from Judah;
  Even cMy chosen ones shall inherit it,
  And dMy servants will dwell there.
  10aSharon will be a pasture land for flocks,
  And the bvalley of Achor a resting place for herds,
  For My people who cseek Me.
  11 “But you who aforsake the LORD,
  Who forget My bholy mountain,
  Who set a table for IFortune,
  And who fill [cups] with mixed wine for IIDestiny,
  12 I will destine you for the asword,
  And all of you will bow down to the bslaughter.
  Because I called, but you cdid not answer;
  I spoke, but you did not hear.
  And you did evil in My sight
  And chose that in which I did not delight.”

13 ¶ Therefore, thus says the Lord IGOD,
  “Behold, My servants will aeat, but you will be bhungry.
  Behold, My servants will cdrink, but you will be dthirsty.
  Behold, My servants will erejoice, but you will be fput to shame.
  14 “Behold, My servants will ashout joyfully with a glad heart,

  And you will wail with a broken spirit.
  15 “You will leave your name for a acurse to My chosen ones,

  Will Ibe blessed by the aGod of truth;

New Heavens and a New Earth

  17 ¶ “For behold, I create anew heavens and a new earth;
  And the bformer things will not be remembered or come to Imind.
  18 “But be aglad and rejoice forever in what I create;
  For behold, I create Jerusalem [for] rejoicing
  And her people [for] gladness.
  19 “I will also arejoice in Jerusalem and be glad in My people;
  And there will no longer be heard in her
  The voice of bweeping and the sound of crying.
  20 “No longer will there be Iin it an infant [who lives but a few] days,
  Or an old man who does anot IIlive out his days;
  For the youth will die at the age of one hundred
  And the IIIbone who does not reach the age of one hundred
  Will be [thought] accursed.
  21 “They will abuild houses and inhabit [them];
  They will also bplant vineyards and eat their fruit.
  22 “They will not build and aanother inhabit,
  They will not plant and another eat;
  For bas the Ilifetime of a tree, [so will be] the days of My people,
  And My chosen ones will cwear out the work of their hands.
  23 “They will anot labor in vain,
  Or bear [children] for calamity;
  For they are the Iboffspring of those blessed by the LORD,
  And their descendants with them.
24 It will also come to pass that before they call, I will aanswer; and while they are still speaking, I will hear. 25 The awolf and the lamb will graze together, and the blion will eat straw like the ox; and cdust will be the serpent’s food. They will ddo no evil or harm in all My eholy mountain,” says the LORD.

The calling of the Gentiles.

1 ¶ I am sought of [them that] asked not [for me]; I am found of [them that] sought me not: I said, Behold me, behold me, unto a nation [that] was not called by my name.

[1] Ps 22:27; Is 2:2; 11:10; 40:9; 41:27; 43:1; 45:22; 55:5; 63:19; Ho 1:10; Zc 2:11; 8:22; Jn 1:29; Ro 9:24, 30; 10:20; Ep 2:12; 1P 2:10.

The Jews, for their incredulity, idolatry, and hypocrisy, are rejected.

2 I have spread out my hands all the day unto a rebellious people, which walketh in a way [that was] not good, after their own thoughts; 3 A people that provoketh me to anger continually to my face; that sacrificeth in gardens, and burneth incense upon altars of brick; 4 Which remain among the graves, and lodge in the monuments, which eat swine's flesh, and broth of abominable [things is in] their vessels; 5 Which say, Stand by thyself, come not near to me; for I am holier than thou. These [are] a smoke in my nose, a fire that burneth all the day. 6 Behold, [it is] written before me: I will not keep silence, but will recompense, even recompense into their bosom, 7 Your iniquities, and the iniquities of your fathers together, saith the LORD, which have burned incense upon the mountains, and blasphemed me upon the hills: therefore will I measure their former work into their bosom.

A remnant shall be saved.

8 ¶ Thus saith the LORD, As the new wine is found in the cluster, and [one] saith, Destroy it not; for a blessing [is] in it: so will I do for my servants' sakes, that I may not destroy them all. 9 And I will bring forth a seed out of Jacob, and out of Judah an inheritor of my mountains: and mine elect shall inherit it, and my servants shall dwell there. 10 And Sharon shall be a fold of flocks, and the valley of Achor a place for the herds to lie down in, for my people that have sought me.

Judgments on the wicked, and blessings on the godly.

11 ¶ But ye [are] they that forsake the LORD, that forget my holy mountain, that prepare a table for that troop, and that furnish the drink offering unto that number. 12 Therefore will I number you to the sword, and ye shall all bow down to the slaughter: because when I called, ye did not answer; when I spake, ye did not hear; but did evil before mine eyes, and did choose [that] wherein I delighted not. 13 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, my servants shall eat, but ye shall be hungry: behold, my servants shall drink, but ye shall be thirsty: behold, my servants shall rejoice, but ye shall be ashamed: 14 Behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart, but ye shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for vexation of spirit. 15 And ye shall leave your name for a curse unto my chosen: for the Lord GOD shall slay thee, and call his servants by another name: 16 That he who blesseth himself in the earth shall bless himself in the God of truth; and he that sweareth in the earth shall swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are hid from mine eyes.

The blessed state of the new Jerusalem.

17 ¶ For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. 18 But be ye glad and rejoice for ever [in that] which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy. 19 And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying. 20 There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner [being] an hundred years old shall be accursed. 21 And 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 [are] the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. 23 They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they [are] the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them. 24 And it shall come to pass, 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 bullock: and dust [shall be] the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.
