Hearken, ye Coastlands, unto me, And give ear ye peoples afar off, - Yahweh, called me, from my birth, From my nativity, made he mention of my name;
Thus, saith Yahweh - Who made thee and formed thee from birth, Who helpeth thee: Do not fear O my Servant Jacob, and Jeshurun whom I have chosen;
Before I formed thee at thy birth, I took knowledge of thee, And before thy nativity, I hallowed thee, - A prophet to the nations, I appointed thee.
Lo! my Servant, I will uphold him, My chosen, well-pleased is my soul, - I have put my spirit upon him, Justice - to the nations, will he bring forth:
Now, therefore, said Yahweh - Fashioning me from birth To be Servant to him, To restore Jacob unto him, And that, Israel, unto him, might be gathered And I be honourable in the eyes of Yahweh, And, my God, be proved to have been my strength,
Incline your ear, and come unto me, Hearken, That your soul, may live, - That I may solemnise for you a covenant age-abiding, The Lovingkindness to David, well-assured.
And 1o! thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name, Jesus:
But, when God, who set me apart from my mother's womb and called me through his favour, was well-pleased
For, thou, art my hope, My Lord, Yahweh, My confidence from my youthful days:
Wherefore let My Lord Himself give you a sign, - Lo! a Virgin, being with child and giving birth to a son, thou wilt call his name Immanuel.
For, A Child, hath been born to us, A Son, hath been given to us, And the dominion is upon his shoulder, - And his Name hath been called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty GOD, Father of Futurity, Prince of Prosperity.
Be silent and hearken unto me, O ye Coastlands, lands, And let the Races of Men renew their strength, - Let them approach, then, let them speak, Together, for controversy, let us draw near: -
Let them render unto Yahweh, glory, - And, his praise, in the Coastlands let them tell.
Thus, saith Yahweh Who hath redeemed thee, Who hath fashioned thee from birth, - I - Yahweh, am the maker of all things, Stretching out the heavens, alone, Spreading forth the earth, of myself;
Turn unto me - and be ye saved, all ye ends of the earth, - For, I, am GOD, and there is none else.
Hearken unto me O house of Jacob, Even all the remnant of the house of Israel, - Who have been borne from birth, Who have been carried from nativity:
At hand is my righteousness. Gone forth hath my salvation, And, mine own arms, unto the peoples, shall give justice, - Upon me, Coastlands, shall wait, And for mine arm, shall they hope.
Creating the fruit of the lips - Prosperity! Prosperity! For him that is far off and for him that is near saith Yahweh, So should I heal him.
Surely for me, shall, Coastlands, wait, And the ships of Tarshish first, To bring in thy sons, from far, Their silver and their gold with them, - Unto the name of Yahweh, thy God, And unto the Holy One of Israel Because he hath adorned thee.
Then will I set among them, a sign, And will send, of them such as have escaped unto the nations - Tarshish Pul and Lud that draw the bow, Tubal and Javan, - The Coastlands that are afar off, Who have not heard my fame Nor seen my glory, And they shall tell my glory throughout the nations.
Terrible will Yahweh be against them, for he hath caused to waste away all the gods of the earth, that men may bow down to him, every one from his place, all the coastlands of the nations:
But, when, these things, he had pondered, lo! a messenger of the Lord, by dream, appeared to him, saying, - Joseph, son of David! do not fear to take unto thee Mary thy wife, for, that which, in her, hath been begotten, is of the , Holy, Spirit.
For he shall be great before the Lord, and, wine and strong drink, in nowise may he drink, and, with Holy Spirit, shall he be filled, already, from his mother's womb;
And the messenger said unto them - Be not afraid! For lo! I bring you good tidings of a great joy, the which shall be for all the people:
Of him whom, the Father, hallowed and sent forth into the world, are, ye, saying - Thou speakest profanely, because I said, Son of God, I am?
And, coming, he announced the glad-message - of peace, unto you, the far off, and peace, unto them that were nigh;
Beware, lest ye excuse yourselves from him that speaketh; for, if, they escaped not, who excused themselves from him who on earth was warning, how much less, shall, we, who from him that warneth from the heavens, do turn ourselves away:
