Isaiah 43
The Savior of Israel
1 But now, O Jacob, listen to the Lord who created you.
O Israel, the one who formed you says,
“Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you.
I have called you by name; you are mine.
2 When you go through deep waters,
I will be with you.
When you go through rivers of difficulty,
you will not drown.
When you walk through the fire of oppression,
you will not be burned up;
the flames will not consume you.
3 For I am the Lord, your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
I gave Egypt as a ransom for your freedom;
I gave Ethiopia[a] and Seba in your place.
4 Others were given in exchange for you.
I traded their lives for yours
because you are precious to me.
You are honored, and I love you.

5 “Do not be afraid, for I am with you.
I will gather you and your children from east and west.
6 I will say to the north and south,
‘Bring my sons and daughters back to Israel
from the distant corners of the earth.
7 Bring all who claim me as their God,
for I have made them for my glory.
It was I who created them.’”

8 Bring out the people who have eyes but are blind,
who have ears but are deaf.
9 Gather the nations together!
Assemble the peoples of the world!
Which of their idols has ever foretold such things?
Which can predict what will happen tomorrow?
Where are the witnesses of such predictions?
Who can verify that they spoke the truth?

10 “But you are my witnesses, O Israel!” says the Lord.
“You are my servant.
You have been chosen to know me, believe in me,
and understand that I alone am God.
There is no other God—
there never has been, and there never will be.
11 I, yes I, am the Lord,
and there is no other Savior.
12 First I predicted your rescue,
then I saved you and proclaimed it to the world.
No foreign god has ever done this.
You are witnesses that I am the only God,”
says the Lord.
13 “From eternity to eternity I am God.
No one can snatch anyone out of my hand.
No one can undo what I have done.”

The Lord’s Promise of Victory
14 This is what the Lord says—your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel:

“For your sakes I will send an army against Babylon,
forcing the Babylonians[b] to flee in those ships they are so proud of.
15 I am the Lord, your Holy One,
Israel’s Creator and King.
16 I am the Lord, who opened a way through the waters,
making a dry path through the sea.
17 I called forth the mighty army of Egypt
with all its chariots and horses.
I drew them beneath the waves, and they drowned,
their lives snuffed out like a smoldering candlewick.

18 “But forget all that—
it is nothing compared to what I am going to do.
19 For I am about to do something new.
See, I have already begun! Do you not see it?
I will make a pathway through the wilderness.
I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.
20 The wild animals in the fields will thank me,
the jackals and owls, too,
for giving them water in the desert.
Yes, I will make rivers in the dry wasteland
so my chosen people can be refreshed.
21 I have made Israel for myself,
and they will someday honor me before the whole world.

22 “But, dear family of Jacob, you refuse to ask for my help.
You have grown tired of me, O Israel!
23 You have not brought me sheep or goats for burnt offerings.
You have not honored me with sacrifices,
though I have not burdened and wearied you
with requests for grain offerings and frankincense.
24 You have not brought me fragrant calamus
or pleased me with the fat from sacrifices.
Instead, you have burdened me with your sins
and wearied me with your faults.

25 “I—yes, I alone—will blot out your sins for my own sake
and will never think of them again.
26 Let us review the situation together,
and you can present your case to prove your innocence.
27 From the very beginning, your first ancestor sinned against me;
all your leaders broke my laws.
28 That is why I have disgraced your priests;
I have decreed complete destruction[c] for Jacob
and shame for Israel.

43:3 Hebrew Cush.
43:14 Or Chaldeans.
43:28 The Hebrew term used here refers to the complete consecration of things or people to the Lord, either by destroying them or by giving them as an offering.

  1. I do so love verse 3 and 11 what they reveal about the Father. The original comfortor and Savior of His people.Only through study of Torah can anyone truly understand this in context.
    Many blessing of understanding to all.
    Love from NS, Canada
    Shalom Paul

    • That doesn’t matter…. black, white, or purple…. if we accept Yahweh and Yeshua… And strive to live out the Torah the best we can… Giving thanks for Yeshua and his sacrifice for us… Then we are all treated and accepted the same by Yahweh… Whether you believe blacks are the true Israelites or not!! That should never be an issue between Believers. Shalom!!

  2. This is my fav part of the chapter 19 Behold, I will do a new thing.
        It springs out now.
        Don’t you know it?
    I will even make a way in the wilderness,
        and rivers in the desert.

  3. YHVH is a descriptive title which can apply to the Father Most High as well as the Son….. Generally speaking it is used to describe the One who led Israel out of Egypt…. All though the Old Testament the title YHVH was applied to the One who would later come as Messiah….. It’s really rather simple….
    Elohim also in not a name but a descriptive title describing some of the aspects of the God Head…. It simply means Mighty Ones…. plural more than one…. It is not a name of God and is used to describe Moses, judges, spirits, demons and even angels…. Descriptive titles are not names as such….

    • For your information, Paul was talking about the name Yahweh (YHWH) which is the personal name of our creator.
      As for YHVH, short for Jehovah, is in fact a mistranslation. By inserting the vowels of the title Adonai in the tetragram YHWH the name Jehovah was created and for that reason they changed the W to V.
