Sing to the Lord a New Song

Isaiah 42

10 v Sing to the Lord a new song,
his praise from the end of the earth,
w you who go down to the sea, and all that fills it,
l the coastlands and their inhabitants.
11 Let the desert and its cities lift up their voice,
the villages that x Kedar inhabits;
let the habitants of y Sela sing for joy,
let them shout from the top of the mountains.
12 Let them give glory to the Lord,
and declare his praise in l the coastlands.
13 z The Lord goes out like a mighty man,
like a man of war a he stirs up his zeal;
he cries out, b he shouts aloud,
he shows himself mighty against his foes.

14 For a long time I have held my peace;
I have kept still and restrained myself;
now I will cry out c like a woman in labor;
I will gasp and pant.
15 d I will lay waste mountains and hills,
and dry up all their vegetation;
I will turn the rivers into islands, 1
and dry up the pools.
16 e And I will lead the blind
in a way that they do not know,
in paths that they have not known
I will guide them.
I will turn the darkness before them into light,
f the rough places into level ground.
These are the things I do,
and I do not forsake them.
17 g They are turned back and utterly put to shame,
who trust in carved idols,
who say to metal images,
"You are our gods."
