Isaiah 65


65:1 I am sought by [them that] asked not [for me]; I am found
 by [them that] sought me not: I said, Behold me, behold me, to
 a nation [that] was not called by my name.
65:2 I have spread out my hands all the day to a rebellious
 people, which walketh in a way [that is] not good, after their
 own thoughts;
65:3 A people that provoketh me to anger continually to my face;
 that sacrificeth in gardens, and burneth incense upon altars of
 brick;
65:4 Which remain among the graves, and lodge in the monuments,
 which eat swine's flesh, and broth of abominable [things is in]
 their vessels;
65:5 Which say, Stand by thyself, come not near to me; for I am
 holier than thou. These [are] a smoke in my nose, a fire that
 burneth all the day.
65:6 Behold, [it is] written before me: I will not keep silence,
 but will recompense, even recompense into their bosom,
65:7 Your iniquities, and the iniquities of your fathers
 together, saith the LORD, who have burned incense upon the
 mountains, and blasphemed me upon the hills: therefore will I
 measure their former work into their bosom.
65:8 Thus saith the LORD, As the new wine is found in the
 cluster, and [one] saith, Destroy it not; for a blessing [is]
 in it: so will I do for my servants' sake, that I may not
 destroy them all.
65:9 And I will bring forth a seed out of Jacob, and out of
 Judah an inheritor of my mountains: and my elect shall inherit
 it, and my servants shall dwell there.
65:10 And Sharon shall be a fold of flocks, and the valley of
 Achor a place for the herds to lie down in, for my people that
 have sought me.
65:11 But ye [are] they that forsake the LORD, that forget my
 holy mountain, that prepare a table for that troop, and that
 furnish the drink-offering to that number.
65:12 Therefore will I number you to the sword, and ye shall all
 bow down to the slaughter: because when I called, ye did not
 answer; when I spoke, ye did not hear; but did evil before my
 eyes, and did choose [that] in which I delighted not.
65:13 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, my servants
 shall eat, but ye shall be hungry: behold, my servants shall
 drink, but ye shall be thirsty: behold, my servants shall
 rejoice, but ye shall be ashamed:
65:14 Behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart, but ye
 shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for vexation of
 spirit.
65:15 And ye shall leave your name for a curse to my chosen: for
 the Lord GOD will slay thee, and call his servants by another
 name:
65:16 That he who blesseth himself in the earth shall bless
 himself in the God of truth; and he that sweareth in the earth
 shall swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles
 are forgotten, and because they are hid from my eyes.
65:17 For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the
 former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.
65:18 But be ye glad and rejoice for ever [in that] which I
 create: for behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her
 people a joy.
65:19 And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and
 the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the
 voice of crying.
65:20 There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an
 old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die
 a hundred years old: but the sinner [being] a hundred years old
 shall be accursed.
65:21 And they shall build houses, and inhabit [them]; and they
 shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them.
65:22 They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not
 plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree [are] the
 days of my people, and my elect shall long enjoy the work of
 their hands.
65:23 They shall not labor in vain, nor bring forth for trouble;
 for they [are] the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their
 offspring with them.
65:24 And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will
 answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.
65:25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion
 shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust [shall be] the
 serpents' food. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy
 mountain, saith the LORD.
