43:1 But now thus says the Lord that created you, O Jacob and he that
formed you, O Israel, Fear not. For I have redeemed thee, I have called
you by your name. You art mine.
43:2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you.(Hebrews
13:5).and through the rivers,
they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall
not be burned neither shall the flame kindle upon you.
43:3-6 For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.
I gave Egypt for your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for you. Since you were
precious in my sight, you have been honourable and I have loved you. Therefore
will I give men for you and people for your life. Fear not for I am with
you. I will bring your seed from the east and gather you from the west.
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.
is good and wants good for all:.Psalms
43:7 Even every one that is called by my name.(*).
For I have created him.(humanity).for
my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.
43:8,9 Bring forth the blind people that have eyes and the deaf that
have ears. 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.
43:10 You are my witnesses, saith the Lord and my servant whom I have
chosen, that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before
was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.
43:11 I, even I, am the Lord and beside me there is no saviour.
Isaiah 43:12 I have declared and have saved and
I have showed, when there was no strange god among you, therefore you are
my witnesses, says the Lord, that I am God.
43:12 I have declared and have saved and I have showed, when there
was no strange god among you, therefore ye are my witnesses.(those
having firsthand knowledge of; one can be most accurate about his own personal
relationship with the Creator), says the Lord, that I am God.
43:13 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.(original
'who shall change it?')?
43:14 Thus saith the Lord, 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.
in their ships. Babylon
was very advantageously situated both in respect to commerce and as a naval
power. It was open to the Persian Gulf
by the Euphrates river, which was navigable by large vessels and being
joined to the Tigris river above Babylon by the canal called Naharmalca
or the Royal River, supplied the city with the produce of the whole country
to the north of it, as far as the Euxine and Caspian seas. Semiramis was
the foundress of this part and also of the Babylonian greatness. She improved
the navigation of the Euphrates and is said to have had a fleet of three
thousand galleys. We are not to wonder that in later times we hear little
of the commerce and naval power of Babylon, for after the taking of the
city by Cyrus, the Euphrates was not only
rendered less fit for navigation by being on that occasion diverted from
its course and left to spread over the whole country, but the Persian.monarchs,
residing in their own country, to prevent any invasion by sea on that part
of their empire, purposely obstructed the navigation of both the rivers
by making cataracts in them by raising dams across the channel and making
artificial falls in them, that no vessel of any size or force could possibly
come up. Alexander the Great began to restore the navigation of the rivers
by demolishing the cataracts upon the Tigris as far up as Seleucia, but
he did not live to finish his great designs. Those upon the Euphrates still
continued. Ammianus, xxiv. 1, mentions them as subsisting in his time.
43:15-17 I am the Lord, your Holy One, the creator of Israel, your
King. Thus saith the Lord, which maketh a way in the sea and a path in
the mighty waters, 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.
therefore might very justly speak of the Chaldeans as glorying in their
naval power in his time, though afterwards they had no foundation for making
any such boast."
43:18 Remember you not the former things, neither consider the things
43:19 Behold, I will do a new thing.(1John
2:8). Now it shall spring forth and you'll see it. I
will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.
all hope seems lost, nothing is impossible when God steps in to help. More
is happening than you know.
43:20 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.
43:21 This people have I formed for myself. They shall show forth my

and you have been weary of me, O Israel.
showed praise by the actions but their heart was elsewhere:.Isaiah
43:25 I, even I am he that blots out
your transgressions for mine own sake.(in
this verse God is saying 'because my nature
and mercy and good
and I want you to be that way too,
so what you see as sin, never
really mattered with me and shouldn't matter with you either').and
will not remember your sins.
since God has perfect control over His memory, when God says He won't remember
them, then there is no way He can and when He thinks of you, what
does He think of you? And, what do you think of you?
did the best they could to create this verse, like so many other verses,
from few words in the original
and with no vowels, these words in this verse, meaning in English:.wipe
out, transgression, remember, sin.and
from that we have this verse.
