26 (A)Confirming the word of His servant
And [a]performing the purpose of His messengers.
It is I who says of Jerusalem, ‘She shall be inhabited!’
And of the (B)cities of Judah, ‘(C)They shall be built.’
And I will raise up her ruins again.

  1. Isaiah 44:26 Lit He performs

“Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, ‘You yourselves have seen all the calamity that I have brought on Jerusalem and all the cities of Judah; and behold, this day they are in (A)ruins and no one lives in them, (B)because of their wickedness which they committed so as to (C)provoke Me to anger by continuing to (D)burn [a]sacrifices and to (E)serve other gods whom they had not known, neither they, you, nor your fathers. Yet I (F)sent you all My servants the prophets, [b]again and again, saying, “Oh, do not do this (G)abominable thing which I hate.” But (H)they did not listen or incline their ears to turn from their wickedness, so as not to burn [c]sacrifices to other gods. Therefore My (I)wrath and My anger were poured out and burned in the (J)cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem, so they have become a ruin and a (K)desolation as it is this day.
