Douay-Rheims Bible

Isaiah 54

The prophet, for the comfort of the Gentiles, prophesieth the amplitude of their Church,

Isaiah 54:1 Give praise, O thou barren, that bearest not: sing forth praise, and make a joyful noise, thou that didst not travail with child: for many are the children of the desolate, more than of her that hath a husband, saith the Lord. Isaiah 54:2 Enlarge the place of thy tent, and stretch out the skins of thy tabernacles, spare not: lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes. Isaiah 54:3 For thou shalt pass on to the right hand, and to the left: and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and shall inhabit the desolate cities.

their safety,

Isaiah 54:4 Fear not, for thou shalt not be confounded, nor blush: for thou shalt not be put to shame, because thou shalt forget the shame of thy youth, and shalt remember no more the reproach of thy widowhood. Isaiah 54:5 For he that made thee shall rule over thee, the Lord of hosts is his name: and thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel, shall be called the God of all the earth.

their certain deliverance out of affliction,

Isaiah 54:6 For the Lord hath called thee as a woman forsaken and mourning in spirit, and as a wife cast off from her youth, said thy God. Isaiah 54:7 For a small moment have I forsaken thee, but with great mercies will I gather thee. Isaiah 54:8 In a moment of indignation have I hid my face a little while from thee, but with everlasting kindness have I had mercy on thee, said the Lord thy Redeemer. Isaiah 54:9 This thing is to me as in the days of Noe, to whom I swore, that I would no more bring in the waters of Noe upon the earth: so have I sworn not to be angry with thee, and not to rebuke thee. Isaiah 54:10 For the mountains shall be moved, and the hills shall tremble; but my mercy shall not depart from thee, and the covenant of my peace shall not be moved: said the Lord that hath mercy on thee.

their fair edification,

Isaiah 54:11 O poor little one, tossed with tempest, without all comfort, behold I will lay thy stones in order, and will lay thy foundations with sapphires, Isaiah 54:12 And I will make thy bulwarks of jasper: and thy gates of graven stones, and all thy borders of desirable stones. Isaiah 54:13 All thy children shall be taught of the Lord: and great shall be the peace of thy children. Isaiah 54:14 And thou shalt be founded in justice: depart far from oppression, for thou shalt not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near thee.

and their sure preservation.

Isaiah 54:15 Behold, an inhabitant shall come, who was not with me, he that was a stranger to thee before, shall be joined to thee. Isaiah 54:16 Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and bringeth forth an instrument for his work, and I have created the killer to destroy.

Isaiah 54:17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper: and every tongue that resisteth thee in judgment, thou shalt condemn. This is the inheritance of the servants of the Lord, and their justice with me, saith the Lord.
