Isaiah 42:18-43:13 (ESV) Israel’s Failure to Hear and See 18 Hear, you deaf,     and look, you blind, that you may see! 19 Who is blind but my servant,     or deaf as my messenger whom I send? Who is blind as my dedicated one,     or blind as the servant of the Lord? 20 He sees many things, but does not observe them;     his ears are open, but he does not hear. 21 The Lord was pleased, for his righteousness’ sake,     to magnify his law and make it glorious. 22 But this is a people plundered and looted;     they are all of......

Isaiah 41 (ESV) Fear Not, for I Am with You 41 Listen to me in silence, O coastlands;     let the peoples renew their strength; let them approach, then let them speak;     let us together draw near for judgment. 2 Who stirred up one from the east     whom victory meets at every step? He gives up nations before him,     so that he tramples kings underfoot; he makes them like dust with his sword,     like driven stubble with his bow. 3 He pursues them and passes on safely,     by paths his feet have not trod. 4 Who has performed and done......

Isaiah 33 (ESV) O Lord, Be Gracious to Us 33 Ah, you destroyer,     who yourself have not been destroyed, you traitor,     whom none has betrayed! When you have ceased to destroy,     you will be destroyed; and when you have finished betraying,     they will betray you. 2 O Lord, be gracious to us; we wait for you.     Be our arm every morning,     our salvation in the time of trouble. 3 At the tumultuous noise peoples flee;     when you lift yourself up, nations are scattered, 4 and your spoil is gathered as the caterpillar gathers;     as locusts leap, it is leapt upon.......

Isaiah 32 (ESV) A King Will Reign in Righteousness 32 Behold, a king will reign in righteousness,     and princes will rule in justice. 2 Each will be like a hiding place from the wind,     a shelter from the storm, like streams of water in a dry place,     like the shade of a great rock in a weary land. 3 Then the eyes of those who see will not be closed,     and the ears of those who hear will give attention. 4 The heart of the hasty will understand and know,     and the tongue of the stammerers will hasten......

Isaiah 31 (ESV) Woe to Those Who Go Down to Egypt 31 Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help     and rely on horses, who trust in chariots because they are many     and in horsemen because they are very strong, but do not look to the Holy One of Israel     or consult the Lord! 2 And yet he is wise and brings disaster;     he does not call back his words, but will arise against the house of the evildoers     and against the helpers of those who work iniquity. 3 The Egyptians are man, and not God,     and their horses are flesh, and not......
