Thus says God, ADONAI, who created the heavens and spread them out, who stretched out the earth and all that grows from it, who gives breath to the people on it and spirit to those who walk on it:
"I, ADONAI, called you righteously, I took hold of you by the hand, I shaped you and made you a covenant for the people, to be a light for the Goyim,
so that you can open blind eyes, free the prisoners from confinement, those living in darkness from the dungeon.
I am ADONAI; that is my name. I yield my glory to no one else, nor my praise to any idol.
See how the former predictions come true; and now new things do I declare - before they sprout I tell you about them."
Sing to ADONAI a new song! Let his praise be sung from the ends of the earth by those sailing the sea and by everything in it, by the coastlands and those living there.
Let the desert and its cities raise their voices, the villages where Kedar lives; let those living in Sela shout for joy; let them cry out from the mountaintops!
Let them give glory to ADONAI and proclaim his praise in the coastlands.
