Isaiah 41:1-6 ASV

1 Keep silence before me, O islands; and let the peoples renew their strength: let them come near; then let them speak; let us come near together to judgment.
2 Who hath raised up one from the east, whom he calleth in righteousness to his foot? he giveth nations before him, and maketh him rule over kings; he giveth them as the dust to his sword, as the driven stubble to his bow.
3 He pursueth them, and passeth on safely, even by a way that he had not gone with his feet.
4 Who hath wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I, Jehovah, the first, and with the last, I am he.
5 The isles have seen, and fear; the ends of the earth tremble; they draw near, and come.
6 They help every one his neighbor; and [every one] saith to his brother, Be of good courage.
