"This is what the LORD says-- Israel's King1 and Redeemer,2 the LORD Almighty: I am the first and I am the last;3 apart from me there is no God.47
Who then is like me?5 Let him proclaim it. Let him declare and lay out before me what has happened since I established my ancient people, and what is yet to come-- yes, let him foretell6 what will come.
Do not tremble, do not be afraid. Did I not proclaim7 this and foretell it long ago? You are my witnesses. Is there any God8 besides me? No, there is no other Rock;9 I know not one."
