Today we use the Gregorian calendar from Pope Gregory; from the 1500’s


Today is February 18th, 2017


February -- month of Februa

Middle English Februarius
Februarius "of Februa"
Februa(s) "Februa" + -arius "ary (pertaining to)"
Februarius mensis "month of Februa"
Latin dies
februatus "day of purification"

Februarius had 28 days, until circa 450 BC when it had 23 or 24 days on some of every second year, until Julius when it had 29 days on every fourth year and 28 days otherwise.

Februa is the Roman festival of purification held on February fifteenth.



 Yehovah has His own calendar


We are now in God’s 11th month Sh’vat, 20th day


Zech.1 [1] In the eighth month, in the second year of Darius, came the word of  Yehovah unto Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet, saying, [7] Upon the four and twentieth day of the eleventh month, which is the month Sebat חֹדֶשׁ שְׁבָט

Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.

the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost


Lets’ start:


Ezek.34[6] My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek after them.

[11] For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out.

[12] As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.

[16] I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick: but I will destroy the fat and the strong; I will feed them with judgment.

Hos.10[12] Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek Yehovah, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.

Amos.5[4] For thus saith Yehovah unto the house of Israel, Seek ye me, and ye shall live:

[5] But seek not Bethel, nor enter into Gilgal, and pass not to Beer-sheba: for Gilgal shall surely go into captivity, and Bethel shall come to nought.

[6] Seek Yehovah, and ye shall live; lest he break out like fire in the house of Joseph, and devour it, and there be none to quench it in Bethel. [7] Ye who turn judgment to wormwood, and leave off righteousness in the earth,

[8] Seek him that maketh the seven stars and Orion, and turneth the shadow of death into the morning, and maketh the day dark with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: Yehovah is his name: [9] That strengtheneth the spoiled against the strong, so that the spoiled shall come against the fortress.

[14] Seek good, and not evil, that ye may live: and so Yehovah, the God of hosts, shall be with you, as ye have spoken. [15] Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be that Yehovah God of hosts will be gracious unto the remnant of Joseph

Heb.11 [6] But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him

Pss.37 [32] The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him

Pss.38 [12] They also that seek after my life lay snares for me: and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and imagine deceits all the day long.

Pss.40 [14] Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish me evil. [15] Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto me, Aha, aha.[16] Let all those that seek thee rejoice and be glad in thee: let such as love thy salvation say continually, Yehovah be magnified.



[1] Now therefore hearken, O Israel, unto the statutes and unto the judgments, which I teach you, for to do them, that ye may live, and go in and possess the land which Yehovah God of your fathers giveth you.


[2] Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of Yehovah your God which I command you.


לֹא תֹסִפוּ, עַל-הַדָּבָר אֲשֶׁר אָנֹכִי מְצַוֶּה אֶתְכֶם, וְלֹא תִגְרְעוּ, מִמֶּנּוּ--לִשְׁמֹר, אֶת-מִצְוֹת יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם, אֲשֶׁר אָנֹכִי, מְצַוֶּה אֶתְכֶם.


[3] Your eyes have seen what Yehovah did because of Baal-peor: for all the men that followed Baal-peor, Yehovah thy God hath destroyed them from among you.

[4] But ye that did cleave unto Yehovah your God are alive every one of you this day.

[5] Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as Yehovah my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it.

[6] Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.

[7] For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as Yehovah our God is in all things that we call upon him for?

[8] And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?

[9] Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons' sons;[10] Specially the day that thou stoodest before Yehovah thy God in Horeb, when Yehovah said unto me, Gather me the people together, and I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children.

[11] And ye came near and stood under the mountain; and the mountain burned with fire unto the midst of heaven, with darkness, clouds, and thick darkness.

[12] And Yehovah spake unto you out of the midst of the fire: ye heard the voice of the words, but saw no similitude; only ye heard a voice.

[13] And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of stone.
[14] And Yehovah commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and judgments, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go over to possess it.

[15] Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner of similitude on the day that Yehovah spake unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire:[16] Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female,
[17] The likeness of any beast that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged fowl that flieth in the air,[18] The likeness of any thing that creepeth on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the waters beneath the earth:[19] And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which Yehovah thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.

[20] But Yehovah hath taken you, and brought you forth out of the iron furnace, even out of Egypt, to be unto him a people of inheritance, as ye are this day.

[21] Furthermore Yehovah was angry with me for your sakes, and sware that I should not go over Jordan, and that I should not go in unto that good land, which Yehovah thy God giveth thee for an inheritance:[22] But I must die in this land, I must not go over Jordan: but ye shall go over, and possess that good land.

[23] Take heed unto yourselves, lest ye forget the covenant of Yehovah your God, which he made with you, and make you a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, which Yehovah thy God hath forbidden thee.

[24] For Yehovah thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.

[25] When thou shalt beget children, and children's children, and ye shall have remained long in the land, and shall corrupt yourselves, and make a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, and shall do evil in the sight of Yehovah thy God, to provoke him to anger:[26] I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that ye shall soon utterly perish from off the land whereunto ye go over Jordan to possess it; ye shall not prolong your days upon it, but shall utterly be destroyed.

[27] And Yehovah shall scatter you among the nations, and ye shall be left few in number among the heathen, whither Yehovah shall lead you.

[28] And there ye shall serve gods, the work of men's hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell.

[29] But if from thence thou shalt seek Yehovah thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.

[30] When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to Yehovah thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice;
[31] (For Yehovah thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.

[32] For ask now of the days that are past, which were before thee, since the day that God created man upon the earth, and ask from the one side of heaven unto the other, whether there hath been any such thing as this great thing is, or hath been heard like it?

[33] Did ever people hear the voice of God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as thou hast heard, and live?

[34] Or hath God assayed to go and take him a nation from the midst of another nation, by temptations, by signs, and by wonders, and by war, and by a mighty hand, and by a stretched out arm, and by great terrors, according to all that Yehovah your God did for you in Egypt before your eyes?

[35] Unto thee it was shewed, that thou mightest know that Yehovah he is God; there is none else beside him.

[36] Out of heaven he made thee to hear his voice, that he might instruct thee: and upon earth he shewed thee his great fire; and thou heardest his words out of the midst of the fire.

[37] And because he loved thy fathers, therefore he chose their seed after them, and brought thee out in his sight with his mighty power out of Egypt;[38] To drive out nations from before thee greater and mightier than thou art, to bring thee in, to give thee their land for an inheritance, as it is this day.

[39] Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that Yehovah he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.[40] Thou shalt keep therefore his statutes, and his commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days upon the earth, which Yehovah thy God giveth thee, for ever.



2Chr.7 [14] If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.


[1] So they brought the ark of God, and set it in the midst of the tent that David had pitched for it: and they offered burnt sacrifices and peace offerings before God.
[2] And when David had made an end of offering the burnt offerings and the peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of Yehovah.
[3] And he dealt to every one of Israel, both man and woman, to every one a loaf of bread, and a good piece of flesh, and a flagon of wine.
[4] And he appointed certain of the Levites to minister before the ark of Yehovah, and to record, and to thank and praise Yehovah God of Israel:
[5] Asaph the chief, and next to him Zechariah, Jeiel, and Shemiramoth, and Jehiel, and Mattithiah, and Eliab, and Benaiah, and Obed-edom: and Jeiel with psalteries and with harps; but Asaph made a sound with cymbals;
[6] Benaiah also and Jahaziel the priests with trumpets continually before the ark of the covenant of God.

[7] Then on that day David delivered first this psalm (105 below) to thank Yehovah into the hand of Asaph and his brethren.

[8] Give thanks unto Yehovah, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people.
[9] Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him, talk ye of all his wondrous works.

[10] Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek Yehovah.

[11] Seek Yehovah and his strength, seek his face continually.

[12] Remember his marvellous works that he hath done, his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;
[13] O ye seed of Israel his servant, ye children of Jacob, his chosen ones.
[14] He is Yehovah our God; his judgments are in all the earth.
[15] Be ye mindful always of his covenant; the word which he commanded to a thousand generations;
[16] Even of the covenant which he made with Abraham, and of his oath unto Isaac;
[17] And hath confirmed the same to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant,
[18] Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance;
[19] When ye were but few, even a few, and strangers in it.
[20] And when they went from nation to nation, and from one kingdom to another people;
[21] He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes,
[22] Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.
[23] Sing unto Yehovah, all the earth; shew forth from day to day his salvation.
[24] Declare his glory among the heathen; his marvellous works among all nations.
[25] For great is Yehovah, and greatly to be praised: he also is to be feared above all gods.
[26] For all the gods of the people are idols: but Yehovah made the heavens.
[27] Glory and honour are in his presence; strength and gladness are in his place.
[28] Give unto Yehovah, ye kindreds of the people, give unto Yehovah glory and strength.
[29] Give unto Yehovah the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship Yehovah in the beauty of holiness.
[30] Fear before him, all the earth: the world also shall be stable, that it be not moved.
[31] Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice: and let men say among the nations, The LORD reigneth.
[32] Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof: let the fields rejoice, and all that is therein.
[33] Then shall the trees of the wood sing out at the presence of Yehovah, because he cometh to judge the earth.
[34] O give thanks unto Yehovah; for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.
[35] And say ye, Save us, O God of our salvation, and gather us together, and deliver us from the heathen, that we may give thanks to thy holy name, and glory in thy praise.
[36] Blessed be Yehovah God of Israel for ever and ever. And all the people said, Amen, and praised Yehovah.



[1] O give thanks unto Yehovah; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.
[2] Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works.
[3] Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek Yehovah.
[4] Seek Yehovah, and his strength: seek his face evermore.

[5] Remember his marvellous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;
[6] O ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye children of Jacob his chosen.
[7] He is Yehovah our God: his judgments are in all the earth.

[8] He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations.
[9] Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac;
[10] And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant:
[11] Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance:
[12] When they were but a few men in number; yea, very few, and strangers in it.
[13] When they went from one nation to another, from one kingdom to another people;
[14] He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes;
[15] Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.
[16] Moreover he called for a famine upon the land: he brake the whole staff of bread.
[17] He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was sold for a servant:
[18] Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron:
[19] Until the time that his word came: the word of Yehovah tried him.
[20] The king sent and loosed him; even the ruler of the people, and let him go free.
[21] He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance:
[22] To bind his princes at his pleasure; and teach his senators wisdom.
[23] Israel also came into Egypt; and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.
[24] And he increased his people greatly; and made them stronger than their enemies.
[25] He turned their heart to hate his people, to deal subtilly with his servants.
[26] He sent Moses his servant; and Aaron whom he had chosen.
[27] They shewed his signs among them, and wonders in the land of Ham.
[28] He sent darkness, and made it dark; and they rebelled not against his word.
[29] He turned their waters into blood, and slew their fish.
[30] Their land brought forth frogs in abundance, in the chambers of their kings.
[31] He spake, and there came divers sorts of flies, and lice in all their coasts.
[32] He gave them hail for rain, and flaming fire in their land.
[33] He smote their vines also and their fig trees; and brake the trees of their coasts.
[34] He spake, and the locusts came, and caterpillers, and that without number,
[35] And did eat up all the herbs in their land, and devoured the fruit of their ground.
[36] He smote also all the firstborn in their land, the chief of all their strength.
[37] He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes.
[38] Egypt was glad when they departed: for the fear of them fell upon them.
[39] He spread a cloud for a covering; and fire to give light in the night.
[40] The people asked, and he brought quails, and satisfied them with the bread of heaven.
[41] He opened the rock, and the waters gushed out; they ran in the dry places like a river.
[42] For he remembered his holy promise, and Abraham his servant.
[43] And he brought forth his people with joy, and his chosen with gladness:
[44] And gave them the lands of the heathen: and they inherited the labour of the people;
[45] That they might observe his statutes, and keep his laws. Praise ye Yehovah.


Pss.9 [10] And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

Pss.10[4] The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.

[15] Break thou the arm of the wicked and the evil man: seek out his wickedness till thou find none.

Pss.14[2] Yehovah looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.




[1] Then David said, This is the house of Yehovah God, and this is the altar of the burnt offering for Israel.
[2] And David commanded to gather together the strangers that were in the land of Israel; and he set masons to hew wrought stones to build the house of God.
[3] And David prepared iron in abundance for the nails for the doors of the gates, and for the joinings; and brass in abundance without weight;
[4] Also cedar trees in abundance: for the Zidonians and they of Tyre brought much cedar wood to David.
[5] And David said, Solomon my son is young and tender, and the house that is to be builded for Yehovah must be exceeding magnifical, of fame and of glory throughout all countries: I will therefore now make preparation for it. So David prepared abundantly before his death.
[6] Then he called for Solomon his son, and charged him to build an house for Yehovah God of Israel.
[7] And David said to Solomon, My son, as for me, it was in my mind to build an house unto the name of Yehovah my God:
[8] But the word of Yehovah came to me, saying, Thou hast shed blood abundantly, and hast made great wars: thou shalt not build an house unto my name, because thou hast shed much blood upon the earth in my sight.
[9] Behold, a son shall be born to thee, who shall be a man of rest; and I will give him rest from all his enemies round about: for his name shall be Solomon, and I will give peace and quietness unto Israel in his days.
[10] He shall build an house for my name; and he shall be my son, and I will be his father; and I will establish throne of his kingdom over Israel for ever.
[11] Now, my son, Yehovah be with thee; and prosper thou, and build the house of Yehovah thy God, as he hath said of thee.
[12] Only Yehovah give thee wisdom and understanding, and give thee charge concerning Israel, that thou mayest keep the law of Yehovah thy God.
[13] Then shalt thou prosper, if thou takest heed to fulfil the statutes and judgments which Yehovah charged Moses with concerning Israel: be strong, and of good courage; dread not, nor be dismayed.
[14] Now, behold, in my trouble I have prepared for the house of Yehovah an hundred thousand talents of gold, and a thousand thousand talents of silver; and of brass and iron without weight; for it is in abundance: timber also and stone have I prepared; and thou mayest add thereto.
[15] Moreover there are workmen with thee in abundance, hewers and workers of stone and timber, and all manner of cunning men for every manner of work.
[16] Of the gold, the silver, and the brass, and the iron, there is no number. Arise therefore, and be doing, and Yehovah be with thee.
[17] David also commanded all the princes of Israel to help Solomon his son, saying,
[18] Is not Yehovah your God with you? and hath he not given you rest on every side? for he hath given the inhabitants of the land into mine hand; and the land is subdued before Yehovah, and before his people.


[19] Now set your heart and your soul to seek Yehovah your God; arise therefore, and build ye the sanctuary of Yehovah God, to bring the ark of the covenant of Yehovah, and the holy vessels of God, into the house that is to be built to the name of Yehovah.


2Chr.11 [16] And after them out of all the tribes of Israel such as set their hearts to seek Yehovah God of Israel came to Jerusalem, to sacrifice unto Yehovah God of their fathers.

1Chr.28 [8]Now therefore in the sight of all Israel the congregation of Yehovah, and in the audience of our God, keep and seek for all the commandments of Yehovah your God: that ye may possess this good land, and leave it for an inheritance for your children after you for ever.

[9] And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for Yehovah searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts:

if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever.

2Chr.12[14] And he did evil, because he prepared not his heart to seek Yehovah.

2Chr.14[4] And commanded Judah to seek Yehovah God of their fathers, and to do the law and the commandment.

2Chr.15 [1] And the Spirit of God came upon Azariah the son of Oded:

[2] And he went out to meet Asa, and said unto him, Hear ye me, Asa, and all Judah and Benjamin;

Yehovah is with you, while ye be with him; and if ye seek him, he will be found of you; but if ye forsake him, he will forsake you.

[12] And they entered into a covenant to seek Yehovah God of their fathers with all their heart and with all their soul;

[13] That whosoever would not seek Yehovah God of Israel should be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman.


2Chr.20[3] And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek Yehovah, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah.[4] And Judah gathered themselves together, to ask help of Yehovah: even out of all the cities of Judah they came to seek Yehovah.

Acts.17 [24] God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
[25] Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;
[26] And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
[27] That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
[28] For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
[29] Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device.
[30] And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:
[31] Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.

[9] Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?

Ezra.9[12] Now therefore give not your daughters unto their sons, neither take their daughters unto your sons, nor seek their peace or their wealth for ever: that ye may be strong, and eat the good of the land, and leave it for an inheritance to your children for ever.


[1] Yehovah is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? Yehovah is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
[2] When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
[3] Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.

Isaiah 42: [18] Hear, ye deaf; and look, ye blind, that ye may see.


19 Who is blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my messenger that I sent? who is blind as he that is perfect, and blind as Yehovah'S servant? (Isa. 42:19 KJV)


 מִי עִוֵּר כִּי אִם-עַבְדִּי, וְחֵרֵשׁ כְּמַלְאָכִי אֶשְׁלָח; מִי עִוֵּר כִּמְשֻׁלָּם, וְעִוֵּר כְּעֶבֶד יְהוָה


Our translation


Who is blind, if you’re my servant or deaf  (if you are like) my messenger that I sent? (You can’t be deaf)


who is blind as perfect or perfected (not blind)


and blind being as the Yehovah’s servant? Another words, you can’t be blind or deaf being Yehovah’s servant, keeping His laws and seeking Him!




[20] Seeing many things, but thou observest not; opening the ears, but he heareth not.

[21] Yehovah is well pleased for his righteousness' sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honourable.

[22] But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivereth; for a spoil, and none saith, Restore.


[23] Who among you will give ear to this? who will hearken and hear for the time to come?


[24] Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? did not Yehovah, He against whom we have sinned? for they would not walk in His ways, neither were they obedient unto His law.

[25] Therefore He hath poured upon him the fury of his anger, and the strength of battle: and it hath set him on fire round about,


They were so deaf and blind that:


yet he (Jacob - Israel knew not; and it burned him, yet Jacob - Israel laid it not to heart.




[1] But now thus saith Yehovah 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 Yehovah 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: 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 I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, 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 Yehovah, 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 Yehovah; and beside 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 Yehovah, 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 Yehovah, your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; For your sake I have sent to Babylon, and have brought down all their nobles, and the Chaldeans, whose cry is in the ships.
[15] I am Yehovah, your Holy One, the creator of Israel, your King.
[16] Thus saith Yehovah, 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: 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.


[22] But thou hast not called upon me, O Jacob; but thou hast been weary of me, O Israel.

[23] Thou hast not brought me the small cattle of thy burnt offerings; neither hast thou honoured me with thy sacrifices. I have not caused thee to serve with an offering, nor wearied thee with incense.

[24] Thou hast bought me no sweet cane with money, neither hast thou filled me with the fat of thy sacrifices: but thou hast made me to serve with thy sins, thou hast wearied me with thine iniquities.

[25] I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.

[26] Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.

[27] Thy first father hath sinned, and thy teachers have transgressed against me.

[28] Therefore I have profaned the princes of the sanctuary, and have given Jacob to the curse, and Israel to reproaches.
