Isaiah 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.

Isaiah 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 shalt not be burned neither shall the flame kindle upon you. Acts 28:2-6

Isaiah 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.
God is good and wants good for all:.Psalms 34:19.
Isaiah 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.

Isaiah 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. 

Isaiah 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 me.(*).there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.

Isaiah 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.
Isaiah 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.
Isaiah 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?')?

Isaiah 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.
Adam Clarke's Commentary:."The Chaldeans.exulted 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. 

"The prophet Isaiah 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."

Isaiah 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.

Isaiah 43:18 Remember you not the former things, neither consider the things of old.

Isaiah 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.
When all hope seems lost, nothing is impossible when God steps in to help. More is happening than you know.
Isaiah 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. 

Isaiah 43:21 This people have I formed for myself. They shall show forth my praise.
We are here to live in higher consciousness ways.
Isaiah 43:22 But you have not called upon me, O Jacob and you have been weary of me, O Israel.
They showed praise by the actions but their heart was elsewhere:.Isaiah 29:13.
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 is kindness 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.
Meaning, 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?

Translators 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.
