"Gather together1 and come; assemble, you fugitives from the nations. Ignorant2 are those who carry3 about idols of wood, who pray to gods that cannot save.421
Declare what is to be, present it-- let them take counsel together. Who foretold5 this long ago, who declared it from the distant past?6 Was it not I, the LORD? And there is no God apart from me,7 a righteous God8 and a Savior;9 there is none but me.
"Turn10 to me and be saved,11 all you ends of the earth;12 for I am God, and there is no other.1323
By myself I have sworn,14 my mouth has uttered in all integrity15 a word that will not be revoked:16 Before me every knee will bow;17 by me every tongue will swear.1824
They will say of me, 'In the LORD alone are righteousness19 and strength.20' " All who have raged against him will come to him and be put to shame.2125
But in the LORD all the descendants22 of Israel will be found righteous23 and will exult.24
