     [ Illustration: Today's painting depicts people, like the Israelites, who were exiled from their land. The LORD's promise to Israel in today's chapter was that he would bring them back from their exile. ]


[ I will again be working through the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. I will be adding links, resources, images, and the like, upgrading the former work-through which began with the 2013-10-12 posting which can be found, along with the full Genesis to Revelation postings, in the Archive Page. Postings will be at midnight Eastern Time, as I am able. However, no chapters will be skipped, even though a posting may be late. And all postings will be housed in the Archive Page. ]

     Explanation: Isaiah 43 begins with an assurance from the LORD to Israel that he will bring them as refugees from all quarters of the globe (1-7).
     He then calls the blind, the deaf, and all the nations to receive the testimony of Israel (his witness) that he, and he alone, is the only God and the only savior; and he cannot be overcome (8-13).
     He will redeem his people from the Chaldeans (14-15).
     He will slay Israel's enemies and give them rivers in the desert to satisfy their thirst (16-21).
     But his people do not call on him; they bring no sacrifices; instead, they weary him with their sins (22-24).
     Nevertheless, the LORD blots out their sin for his own sake even though their fathers and their teachers have sinned against him and have profaned his sanctuary (25-28).

PLEASE NOTE: Use the resources on this and other sites thoughtfully, particularly the commentaries and encyclopedias. I have attempted to list conservative, scholarly resources. However, some providers use liberal or liberal-influenced commentaries such as the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges (in Bible Hub). Such commentaries are undoubtedly included by the provider for the wealth of useful information and comments which they provide. By consulting several commentaries, it should be fairly easy to sort out the wheat from the chaff. If, however, you would like personal assistance, write to me at AD LIB ARTS EMAIL.

2. Post-Exile: The Blessing & Judgment Cycles ( 40:1 - 66:24 ) - 701-681 B.C., Israel
(These 8 groups of prophecies alternate between blessings on Israel and judgment on God's enemies.)

A. Cycle 1 (40:1 - 48:22)

1. Blessing: On God's Chastised People (40:1 - 45:25)

d. Blessing for God's People Through their Return from Exile (43:1-28)

1 But now thus saith the LORD
that created thee, O Jacob,
and he that formed thee, O Israel,
Fear not:
for I have redeemed thee,
I have called thee by thy name;
thou art mine.
2 When thou passest through the waters,
I will be with thee;
and through the rivers,
they shall not overflow thee:
when thou walkest through the fire,
thou shalt not be burned;
neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
3 For I am the LORD thy God,
the Holy One of Israel,
thy Saviour:
I gave Egypt for thy ransom,
Ethiopia and Seba for thee.
4 Since thou wast precious in my sight,
thou hast been honourable,
and I have loved thee:
therefore will I give men for thee,
and people for thy life.
5 Fear not:
for I am with thee:
I will bring thy seed from the east,
and gather thee from the west;
6 I will say to the north,
Give up;
and to the south,
Keep not back [Restrain not]:
bring my sons from far,
and my daughters from the ends of the earth;
7 Even every one that is called by my name:
for created him for my glory,
I have formed him;
I have made him.

8 Bring forth the blind people that have eyes,
and the deaf that have ears.
9 Let all the nations be gathered together,
and let the people be assembled:
who among them can declare this,
and shew us former things?
let them bring forth their witnesses,
that they may be justified:
or let them hear,
and say,
It is truth.
10 Ye are my witnesses,
saith the LORD,
and my servant whom I have chosen:
that ye may know and believe me,
and understand that I am he:
before me there was no God formed,
neither shall there be after me.
11 I, even I, am the LORD;
and beside me [from except me] there is no saviour.
12 I have declared,
and have saved,
and I have shewed,
when there was no strange god among you:
therefore ye are my witnesses,
saith the LORD,
that I am God.
13 Yea,
before the day was I am he;
and there is none that can deliver out of my hand:
I will work,
and who shall let it?

14 Thus saith the LORD,
your redeemer,
the Holy One of Israel;
For your sake I have sent to Babylon,
and have bought down all their nobles,
and the Chaldeans,
whose cry is in the ships.
15 I am the LORD,
your Holy One,
the creator of Israel,
your King.

16 Thus saith the LORD,
which maketh a way in the sea,
and a path in the mighty waters;
17 Which bringeth forth the chariot and horse,
the army and the power;
they shall lie down together,
they shall not rise:
they are extinct,
they are quenched as tow.
18 Remember ye not the former things,
neither consider the things of old.
19 Behold,
I will do a new thing;
now it shall spring forth;
shall ye not know it?
I will even make a way in the wilderness,
and rivers in the desert.
20 The beast of the field shall honour me,
the dragons and the owls [daughters of owls]:
because I give waters in the wilderness,
and rivers in the desert,
to give drink to my people,
my chosen.
21 This people have I formed for myself;
they shall shew forth my praise.
