Isaiah 63:3-6

A  3 for I will tread them in mine anger,
and trample them in my fury;

and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments,
and I will stain all my raiment.

4 For the day of vengeance is in mine heart,
and the year of my redeemed is come.

B. 5 And I looked, and there was none to help;
and I wondered that there was none to uphold:

B’  therefore mine own arm brought salvation unto me
and my fury, it upheld me.

A’ 6 And I will tread down the people in mine anger,
and make them drunk in my fury,

and I will bring down their strength to the earth.

Isaiah 63:15 – 64:12

edited in light of comment

A. 15 Look down from heaven,
and behold from the habitation of thy holiness and of thy glory: where is thy zeal and thy strength,
the sounding of thy bowels and of thy mercies toward me?
are they restrained?

B.(16)  Doubtless thou art our father,
though Abraham be ignorant of us,
and Israel acknowledge us not:
thou, O LORD, art our father, our redeemer;
thy name is from everlasting.

C.(17) O LORD, why hast thou made us to err from thy ways,
and hardened our heart from thy fear?
Return for thy servants ‘sake, the tribes of thine inheritance.
(18) The people of thy holiness have possessed it but a little while: our adversaries have trodden down thy sanctuary.
(19) We are thine:
thou never barest rule over them;
they were not called by thy name.

D. (1) Oh that thou wouldest rend the heavens,
that thou wouldest come down,
that the mountains might flow down at thy presence
(2) As when the melting fire burneth,
the fire causeth the waters to boil,
to make thy name known to thine adversaries,
that the nations may tremble at thy presence!
(3) When thou didst terrible things which we looked not for,
thou camest down,
the mountains flowed down at thy presence.

E. (4) For since the beginning of the world men have not heard,
nor perceived by the ear,
neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee,
what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him.

D’. (5)Thou meetest him that rejoiceth and worketh righteousness, those that remember thee in thy ways:
behold, thou art wroth;
for we have sinned:
in those is continuance,
and we shall be saved.

C’.(6) But we are all as an unclean thing,
and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags;
and we all do fade as a leaf;
and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
(7) And there is none that calleth upon thy name,
that stirreth up himself to take hold of thee:
for thou hast hid thy face from us,
and hast consumed us, because of our iniquities.

B’. (8) But now, O LORD, thou art our father;
we are the clay, and thou our potter;
and we all are the work of thy hand.
9 Be not wroth very sore, O LORD,
neither remember iniquity for ever:

A’.  behold, see, we beseech thee, we are all thy people.
(10) Thy holy cities are a wilderness,
Zion is a wilderness,
Jerusalem a desolation.
(11) Our holy and our beautiful house,
where our fathers praised thee, is burned up with fire:
and all our pleasant things are laid waste.
(12) Wilt thou refrain thyself for these things, O LORD?
wilt thou hold thy peace, and afflict us very sore?

Isaiah 44:21

(From Sandy Robson)

A. Remember these, O Jacob and Israel;

B. for thou art my servant:

C. I have formed thee;

B’. thou art my servant:

A’.  O Israel, thou shalt not be forgotten of me

Note: The Lord God has formed Israel – natural and spiritual – the Lord God has formed us! We are His precious creation. In our serving of Him, we are acknowledging that He has formed us and, indeed, is in the process of forming us anew. Why did He form us? In order that we might serve Him. In our serving of Him, we remember that He has formed us, and He remembers us. Yet, we may respond sorrowfully, we do not always serve Him! True, but nonetheless He still remembers us for He has formed us! He is stressing this – and asks us to remember that, though we all fall short, we are not forgotten by Him!

Isaiah 45:15-16

(From SamS)

A. They shall be ashamed, and also confounded, all of them: they shall go to confusion together that are makers of idols.

B. But Israel shall be saved

C. in the LORD

B’. with an everlasting salvation:

A’. ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end.

Isaiah 38

A. 1 In those days Hezekiah became sick and was at the point of death.  And Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz came to him, and said to him, “Thus says the LORD: Set your house in order, for you shall die, you shall not recover.”

B. 2 Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the LORD, 3 and said, “Please, O LORD, remember how I have walked before you in faithfulness and with a whole heart, and have done what is good in your sight.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly.

B’. 4 Then the word of the LORD came to Isaiah: 5 Go and say to Hezekiah, Thus says the LORD, the God of David your father: I have heard your prayer; I have seen your tears.

A’. Behold, I will add fifteen years to your life. 6 I will deliver you and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria, and will defend this city.

A. 7 “This shall be the sign to you from the LORD, that the LORD will do this thing that he has promised: 8Behold, I will make the shadow cast by the declining sun on the dial of Ahaz turn back ten steps.” So the sun turned back on the dial the ten steps by which it had declined.c

B. 9 A writing of Hezekiah king of Judah, after he had been sick and had recovered from his sickness:

C. 10 I said, In the middle of my days I must depart;
I am consigned to the gates of Sheol for the rest of my years.

D. 11 I said, I shall not see the LORDthe LORD in the land of the living; I shall look on man no more among the inhabitants of the world.

E. 12 My dwelling is plucked up and removed from me like a shepherd’s tent; like a weaver I have rolled up my life; he cuts me off from the loom; from day to night you bring me to an end; 13 I calmed myselfe until morning; like a lion he breaks all my bones;
from day to night you bring me to an end.

F. 14 Like a swallow or a crane I chirp; I moan like a dove. My eyes are weary with looking upward. O Lord, I am oppressed; be my pledge of safety! 15 What shall I say? For he has spoken to me, and he himself has done it. I walk slowly all my years because of the bitterness of my soul.

G. 16 O Lord, by these things men live,  and in all these is the life of my spirit. 

G’. Oh restore me to health and make me live

F’. 17 Behold, it was for my welfare that I had great bitterness; 

E’. but in love you have delivered my life from the pit of destruction, for you have cast all my sins behind your back.

D’. 18 For Sheol does not thank you; death does not praise you;
those who go down to the pit do not hope for your faithfulness.
19 The living, the living, he thanks you, as I do this day;
the father makes known to the children your faithfulness

C’. 20 The LORD will save me, and we will play my music on stringed instruments all the days of our lives, at the house of the LORD.

B’. 21 Now Isaiah had said, “Let them take a cake of figs and apply it to the boil, that he may recover.

A’. 22 Hezekiah also had said, “What is the sign that I shall go up to the house of the LORD?”

 

 

Isaiah 63:7

(From BeckyP)

A (7a) I will mention the lovingkindnesses of the LORD, and the praises of the LORD,

B (7b) according to all that the LORD hath bestowed on us,

C (7c) and the great goodness toward the house of Israel,

B’ (7d) which he hath bestowed on them according to his mercies,

A’ (7e) and according to the multitude of his lovingkindnesses.

Isaiah 2:1-4

1 The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.

2 And it shall come to pass in the last days,

A. that the mountain of the LORD’s house shall be
established in the top of the mountains,
and shall be exalted above the hills;
and all nations shall flow unto it.
3 And many people shall go
and say, Come ye,
and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD,
to the house of the God of Jacob;

B. and he will teach (yara) us of his ways,
and we will walk in his paths:

A’. for out of Zion shall go forth the law,
and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
4 And he shall judge among the nations,
and shall rebuke many people:
and they shall beat their swords into plowshares,
and their spears into pruning hooks:   
nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
neither shall they learn (lamed) war any more.
