The Book of Isaiah Chapter 48 – New King James Version (NKJV) – Audio Bible

Chapter 48. Hear this o House of Jacob who are Called by the name of Israel and have Come forth from the Wellsprings of Judah Who swear by the name of the Lord and Make mention of the god of Israel but Not in truth or in righteousness For they call themselves after the holy City and lean on the god of Israel The Lord of hosts is his name I have declared the former things from The beginning They went forth from my mouth and I Caused them to hear it Suddenly I did them and they came to Pass Because I knew that you were obstinate And your neck was an iron sinew and your Brow bronze Even from the beginning I have declared It to you Before it came to pass I proclaimed it To you lest you should say my idol has Done them and my carved image and my Molded image have commanded them You have heard See all this And will you not declare it I have made you hear new things from This time even hidden things and you did Not know them They are created now and not from the Beginning And before this day you have not heard

Them lest you should say of course I Knew them Surely you did not hear Surely you did not know Surely from long ago your ear was not Opened For I knew that you would deal very Treacherously And were called a transgressor from the Womb For my name's sake I will defer my anger And for my praise I will restrain it From you so that I do not cut you off Behold I have refined you but not as Silver I have tested you in the furnace of Affliction For my own sake for my own sake I will Do it For how should my name be profaned And I will not give my glory to another Listen to me o Jacob and Israel my Called I am he I am the first I am also the last Indeed my hand has laid the foundation Of the Earth And my right hand has stretched out the Heavens When I call to them they stand up Together All of you assemble yourselves and hear Who among them has declared these things The lord loves him

He shall do his pleasure on Babylon and His arm shall be against the Chaldeans I even I have spoken Yes I have called him I have brought him And his way will prosper Come near to me Hear this I have not spoken in secret from the Beginning From the time that it was I was there And now the Lord God and His Spirit have Sent me Thus says the Lord your Redeemer the Holy One of Israel I am the Lord your God Who teaches you to profit Who leads you by the way you should go Oh that you had heeded my Commandments Then your peace would have been like a River And your righteousness like the waves of The sea Your descendants also would have been Like the sand and The Offspring of your Body like the grains of sand His name would not have been cut off nor Destroyed from before me Go forth from Babylon Flee from the Chaldeans With a voice of singing declare Proclaim This utter it to the end of the Earth Say the Lord has redeemed his servant Jacob And they did not thirst when he led them

Through the deserts He caused the waters to flow from the Rock for them He also split the Rock and the waters Gushed out There is no peace says the Lord For the wicked
