40 1Comfort, comfort my people,
says your God.
ISAIAH 2. (The Exile). Words of hope. Is.40.1-11 549bce (Babylon)נַחֲמוּ נַחֲמוּ עַמִּי יֹאמַר אֱלֹהֵיכֶם׃
2Speak tenderly to Jerusalem,
and cry to her that her warfare is ended,
that her iniquity is pardoned,
that she has received from Yahweh's hand
double for all her sins.
 דַּבְּרוּ עַל־לֵב יְרוּשָׁלִַם וְקִרְאוּ אֵלֶיהָ
כִּי מָלְאָה צְבָאָהּ כִּי נִרְצָה עֲוֹנָהּ
כִּי לָקְחָה מִיַּד יְהוָה כִּפְלַיִם בְּכָל־חַטֹּאתֶיהָ׃ ס
3A voice cries:
"In the wilderness prepare the way of Yahweh,
make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
 קֹול קֹורֵא
בַּמִּדְבָּר פַּנּוּ דֶּרֶךְ יְהוָה
יַשְּׁרוּ בָּעֲרָבָה מְסִלָּה לֵאלֹהֵינוּ׃
4Every valley shall be lifted up,
and every mountain and hill be made low;
the uneven ground shall become level,
and the rough places a plain.
 כָּל־גֶּיא יִנָּשֵׂא וְכָל־הַר וְגִבְעָה יִשְׁפָּלוּ
וְהָיָה הֶעָקֹב לְמִישֹׁור וְהָרְכָסִים לְבִקְעָה׃
5And the glory of Yahweh shall be revealed,
and all flesh shall see it together,
for the mouth of Yahweh has spoken."
 וְנִגְלָה כְּבֹוד יְהוָה וְרָאוּ כָל־בָּשָׂר יַחְדָּו כִּי פִּי יְהוָה דִּבֵּר׃ ס
6A voice says, "Cry!"
And I said, "What shall I cry?"
All flesh is grass,
and all its beauty is like the flower of the field.
 קֹול אֹמֵר קְרָא וְאָמַר מָה אֶקְרָא
כָּל־הַבָּשָׂר חָצִיר וְכָל־חַסְדֹּו כְּצִיץ הַשָּׂדֶה׃
7The grass withers, the flower fades,
when the breath of Yahweh blows upon it;
surely the people is grass.
 יָבֵשׁ חָצִיר נָבֵל צִיץ כִּי רוּחַ יְהוָה נָשְׁבָה בֹּו אָכֵן חָצִיר הָעָם׃
8The grass withers, the flower fades;
but the word of our God will stand for ever.
 יָבֵשׁ חָצִיר נָבֵל צִיץ וּדְבַר־אֱלֹהֵינוּ יָקוּם לְעֹולָם׃ ס
9Get you up to a high mountain,
O Zion, herald of good tidings;
lift up your voice with strength,
O Jerusalem, herald of good tidings,
lift it up, fear not;
say to the cities of Judah,
"Behold your God!"
 עַל הַר־גָּבֹהַ עֲלִי־לָךְ מְבַשֶּׂרֶת צִיֹּון
הָרִימִי בַכֹּחַ קֹולֵךְ מְבַשֶּׂרֶת יְרוּשָׁלִָם הָרִימִי אַל־תִּירָאִי
אִמְרִי לְעָרֵי יְהוּדָה הִנֵּה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם׃
10Behold, the Lord Yahweh comes with might,
and his arm rules for him;
behold, his reward is with him,
and his recompense before him.
 הִנֵּה אֲדֹנָי יְהוִה בְּחָזָק יָבֹוא וּזְרֹעֹו מֹשְׁלָה לֹו
הִנֵּה שְׂכָרֹו אִתֹּו וּפְעֻלָּתֹו לְפָנָיו׃
11He will feed his flock like a shepherd,
he will gather the lambs in his arms,
he will carry them in his bosom,
and gently lead those that are with young.
 כְּרֹעֶה עֶדְרֹו יִרְעֶה בִּזְרֹעֹו יְקַבֵּץ
טְלָאִים וּבְחֵיקֹו יִשָּׂא עָלֹות יְנַהֵל׃ ס

Notes: This page displays passages from the katapi NEW STUDY BIBLE.
The katapi NEW STUDY BIBLE is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have used the name 'Yahweh'.
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.

The katapi New Study Bible reference section displays links to parallel passages, and to direct quotations by New Testament authors to Old Testament passages. Quotations of OT passages by NT authors can in most cases be viewed within their context of the OT passage as a whole, with the quoted text displayed, against a subdued background.
