Have we not all one father? has not one God made us? why are we, every one of us, acting falsely to his brother, putting shame on the agreement of our fathers? Malachi 2.10

Isaiah 43
1 Timothy 1

Isaiah 42


1
See my servant, whom I am supporting, my loved one, in whom I take delight: I have put my spirit on him he will give the knowledge of the true God to the nations.
2
He will make no cry, his voice will not be loud: his words will not come to men's ears in the streets.
3
He will not let a crushed stem be quite broken, and he will not let a feebly burning light be put out: he will go on sending out the true word to the peoples.
4
His light will not be put out, and he will not be crushed, till he has given the knowledge of the true God to the earth, and the sea-lands will be waiting for his teaching.
5
God the Lord, even he who made the heavens, measuring them out on high stretching out the earth, and giving its produce he who gives breath to the people on it, and life to those who go about on it, says:
6
I the Lord have made you the vessel of my purpose, I have taken you by the hand, and kept you safe, and I have given you to be an agreement to the people, and a light to the nations:
7
To give eyes to the blind, to make free the prisoners from the prison, to let out those who are shut up in the dark.
8
I am the Lord that is my name: I will not give my glory to another, or my praise to pictured images.
9
See, the things said before have come about, and now I give word of new things: before they come I give you news of them.
10
Make a new song to the Lord, and let his praise be sounded from the end of the earth you who go down to the sea, and everything in it, the sea-lands and their people.
11
Let the waste land and its flocks be glad, the tent-circles of Kedar let the people of the rock give a glad cry, from the top of the mountains let them make a sound of joy.
12
Let them give glory to the Lord, sounding his praise in the sea-lands.
13
The Lord will go out as a man of war, he will be moved to wrath like a fighting-man: his voice will be strong, he will give a loud cry he will go against his attackers like a man of war.
14
I have long been quiet, I have kept myself in and done nothing: now I will make sounds of pain like a woman in childbirth, breathing hard and quickly.
15
I will make waste mountains and hills, drying up all their plants and I will make rivers dry, and pools dry land.
16
And I will take the blind by a way of which they had no knowledge, guiding them by roads strange to them: I will make the dark places light before them, and the rough places level. These things will I do and will not give them up.
17
They will be turned back and be greatly shamed who put their hope in pictured images, who say to metal images, You are our gods.
18
Give ear, you whose ears are shut and let your eyes be open, you blind, so that you may see.
19
Who is blind, but my servant? who has his ears stopped, but he whom I send? who is blind as my true one, or who has his ears shut like the Lord's servant?
20
Seeing much, but keeping nothing in mind his ears are open, but there is no hearing.
21
It was the Lord's pleasure, because of his righteousness, to make the teaching great and give it honour.
22
But this is a people whose property has been taken away from them by force they are all taken in holes, and shut up in prisons: they are made prisoners, and no one makes them free they are taken by force and no one says, Give them back.
23
Who is there among you who will give ear to this? who will give attention to it for the time to come?
24
Who gave up Jacob to those who took away his goods, and Israel to his attackers? Did not the Lord? he against whom they did wrong, and in whose ways they would not go, turning away from his teaching.
25
For this reason he let loose on him the heat of his wrath, and his strength was like a flame and it put fire round about him, but he did not see it he was burned, but did not take it to heart.

Isaiah 43


1
But now, says the Lord your Maker, O Jacob, and your life-giver, O Israel: have no fear, for I have taken up your cause naming you by your name, I have made you mine.
2
When you go through the waters, I will be with you and through the rivers, they will not go over you: when you go through the fire, you will not be burned and the flame will have no power over you.
3
For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your saviour I have given Egypt as a price for you, Ethiopia and Seba for you.
4
Because of your value in my eyes, you have been honoured, and loved by me so I will give men for you, and peoples for your life.
5
Have no fear, for I am with you: I will take your seed from the east, and get you together from the west
6
I will say to the north, Give them up and to the south, Do not keep them back send back my sons from far, and my daughters from the end of the earth
7
Every one who is named by my name, and whom I have made for my glory, who has been formed and designed by me.
8
Send out the blind people who have eyes, and those who have ears, but they are shut.
9
Let all the nations come together, and let the peoples be present: who among them is able to make this clear, and give us word of earlier things? let their witnesses come forward, so that they may be seen to be true, and that they may give ear, and say, It is true.
10
You are my witnesses, says the Lord, and my servant whom I have taken for myself: so that you may see and have faith in me, and that it may be clear to you that I am he before me there was no God formed, and there will not be after me.
11
I, even I, am the Lord and there is no saviour but me.
12
I gave the word, and made it clear, and there was no strange god among you: for this reason you are my witnesses, says the Lord.
13
From time long past I am God, and from this day I am he: there is no one who is able to take you out of my hand: when I undertake a thing, by whom will my purpose be changed?
14
The Lord, who has taken up your cause, the Holy One of Israel, says, Because of you I have sent to Babylon, and made all their seers come south, and the Chaldaeans whose cry is in the ships.
15
I am the Lord, your Holy One, the Maker of Israel, your King.
16
This is the word of the Lord, who makes a way in the sea, and a road through the deep waters
17
Who sends out the war-carriages and the horses, the army with all its force they have come down, they will not get up again like a feebly burning light they are put out.
18
Give no thought to the things which are past let the early times go out of your minds.
19
See, I am doing a new thing now it is starting will you not take note of it? I will even make a way in the waste land, and rivers in the dry country.
20
The beasts of the field will give me honour, the jackals and the ostriches: because I send out waters in the waste land, and rivers in the dry country, to give drink to the people whom I have taken for myself:
21
Even the people whom I made to be the witnesses of my praise.
22
But you have made no prayer to me, O Jacob: and you have given no thought to me, O Israel.
23
You have not made me burned offerings of sheep, or given me honour with your offerings of beasts I did not make you servants to give me an offering, and I did not make you tired with requests for perfumes.
24
You have not got me sweet-smelling plants with your money, or given me pleasure with the fat of your offerings: but you have made me a servant to your sins, and you have made me tired with your evil doings.
25
I, even I, am he who takes away your sins and I will no longer keep your evil doings in mind.
26
Put me in mind of this let us take up the cause between us: put forward your cause, so that you may be seen to be in the right.
27
Your first father was a sinner, and your guides have gone against my word.
28
Your chiefs have made my holy place unclean, so I have made Jacob a curse, and Israel a thing of shame.

1 Timothy 1


1
Paul, an Apostle of Jesus Christ, by the order of God our Saviour and Christ Jesus our hope
2
To Timothy, my true child in the faith: Grace, mercy, peace, from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.
3
It was my desire, when I went on into Macedonia, that you might make a stop at Ephesus, to give orders to certain men not to put forward a different teaching,
4
Or to give attention to stories and long lists of generations, from which come questionings and doubts, in place of God's ordered way of life which is in faith
5
But the effect of the order is love coming from a clean heart, and a knowledge of what is right, and true faith:
6
From which some have been turned away, giving themselves to foolish talking
7
Desiring to be teachers of the law, though they have no knowledge of what they say or of the statements which they make so certainly.
8
We are conscious that the law is good, if a man makes a right use of it,
9
With the knowledge that the law is made, not for the upright man, but for those who have no respect for law and order, for evil men and sinners, for the unholy and those who have no religion, for those who put their fathers or mothers to death, for takers of life,
10
For those who go after loose women, for those with unnatural desires, for those who take men prisoners, who make false statements and false oaths, and those who do any other things against the right teaching,
11
Which may be seen in the good news of the glory of the great God, which was given into my care.
12
I give praise to him who gave me power, Christ Jesus our Lord, because he took me to be true, making me his servant,
13
Though I had said violent words against God, and done cruel acts, causing great trouble: but I was given mercy, because I did it without knowledge, not having faith
14
And the grace of our Lord was very great, with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.
15
It is a true saying, in which all may put their faith, that Christ Jesus came into the world to give salvation to sinners, of whom I am the chief:
16
But for this reason I was given mercy, so that in me, the chief of sinners, Jesus Christ might make clear all his mercy, as an example to those who in the future would have faith in him to eternal life.
17
Now to the King eternal, ever-living, unseen, the only God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. So be it.
18
This order I give to you, Timothy my son, in harmony with the words of the prophets about you, so that by them you may be strong, fighting the good fight,
19
Keeping faith, and being conscious of well-doing for some, by not doing these things, have gone wrong in relation to the faith:
20
Such are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have given up to Satan, so that they may say no more evil words against God.
