Comfort from Koresh (Cyrus), Elohim's Anointed
45:1 Thus said ADONAI (יהוה) to His mashiyach (anointed, משׁיח), to Koresh (Cyrus), whose yamin (right hand) I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the doors; and the she'arim (gates) shall not be shut;
45:2 I will go before you, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the she'arim (gates) of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:
45:3 And I will give you the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that you mayest know that I, ADONAI (יהוה), which call [thee] by your name, [am] the Elohim (אלהים) of Yisrael.
45:4 For Yaakov my servant's sake, and Yisrael mine elect, I have even called you by your name: I have surnamed you, though you have not known me.
45:5 ANI ADONAI (יהוה), and [there is] none else, [there is] no Elohim (אלהים) beside me: I girded you, though you have not known me: (YeshaYahu 37:16, chp 45:5; chp 43:10,11)
45:6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the ma'arav (west), that [there is] none beside me. ANI ADONAI (יהוה), and [there is] none else.
45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make shalom, and create evil: I ADONAI (יהוה) do all these [things].
45:8 Drop down, you Shamayim, from above, and let the skies pour down tzedek: let the earth open, and let them bring forth yesha (salvation), and let tzedek spring up together; I ADONAI (יהוה) have created it.
Adonay of Creation and History
45:9 Woe to him that striveth with his Maker! [Let] the potsherd [strive] with the Yotzer (earth vessels) ha eretz. Shall the clay say to him that fashions it, What makest thou? or your work, He has no hands?
45:10 Woe to him that said to [his] father, What begettest thou? or to the woman, What have you brought forth?
45:11 Thus said ADONAI (יהוה), the Set Apart One of Yisrael, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my Banim, and concerning the work of my hands command you Me.
45:12 I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, [even] My hands, have stretched out the Shamayim, and all their host have I commanded.
45:13 אָנֹכִי הַעִירֹתִהוּ בְצֶדֶק וְכׇל-דְּרָכָיו אֲיַשֵּר הוּא-יִבְנֶה עִירִיוְגָלוּתִי יְשַלֵּחַ לֹא בִמְחִיר וְלֹא בְשֹחַד אָמַר יְהֹוָה צְבָאוֹת׃
Anochi ha'irotihu vetzedek vechol-derachav ayasher hu-yivneh iri vegaluti yeshaleach lo vimchir velo veshochad amar ADONAI Tzeva'ot.
I have raised him up in tzedek, and I will direct all His ways: he shall build My city, and he shall let go My galut (captives), not for price nor reward, said ADONAI (יהוה) Tzva'ot.
45:14 Thus said ADONAI (יהוה), The labour of Mitzrayim, and merchandise of Ethiopia and of the Sabeans, men of stature, shall come over to you, and they shall be thine: they shall come after thee; in chains they shall come over, and they shall fall down to you, they shall make supplication to you, [saying], Surely Elohim (אלהים) [is] in thee; and [there is] none else, [there is] no Elohim (אלהים).
45:15 Verily you [are] a Elohim (אלהים) that hidest yourself, O Elohim (אלהים) of Yisrael, the Moshia.
45:16 They shall be ashamed, and also confounded, all of them: they shall go to confusion together [that are] makers of atzabim (idols).
45:17 [But] Yisrael shall be saved in ADONAI (יהוה) with an everlasting yesha (salvation): you shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end.
45:18 For thus said ADONAI (יהוה) that created the Shamayim; Elohim (אלהים) himself that formed the earth and made it; he has established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: ANI ADONAI (יהוה); and [there is] none else.
45:19 I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place ha eretz: I said not to the zera (seed) of Yaakov, Seek you Me in vain: I ADONAI (יהוה) speak tzedek, I declare things that are right.
The idolatry of Bavel
45:20 Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, you [that are] escaped of the nations: they have no knowledge that set up the wood of their pesel (graven image), and pray to a god [that] cannot save.
45:21 Tell you, and bring [them] near; yea, let them take counsel together: who has declared this from ancient time? [who] has told it from that time? [have] not I ADONAI (יהוה)? and [there is] no Elohim (אלהים) else beside Me; a just Elohim (אלהים) and a Moshia; [there is] none beside me.
Hashem's invitation extended to Goyim
45:22 Look to Me, and be you saved, all the ends ha eretz: for I [am] Elohim (אלהים), and [there is] none else.
45:23 I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth [in] tzedek, and shall not return, That to me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall shavar (swear).
45:24 Surely, shall [one] say, in ADONAI (יהוה) have I tzedek and oz (strength): [even] to him shall [men] come; and all that are levonah ( לבונה) against him shall be ashamed.
45:25 In ADONAI (יהוה) shall all the zera (seed) of Yisrael be yitzdeku (justified), and shall glory.
