"Keep silence before me, coastlands! Let the peoples replenish their strength! Let them approach; then let them speak. Let us assemble for judgment."
Who has raised from the east one who is just and called him to be in his service? He hands nations over to him and subjects kings to him; his sword reduces them to dust, his bow to driven straw.
He pursues them, passing on unscathed, hardly touching the path with his feet.
Whose work is this? Who has brought it about? He who called the generations from the beginning, "I, ADONAI, am the first; and I am the same with those who are last."
The coastlands have seen and became afraid. The ends of the earth have trembled. They have approached, and now they have come.
Every one helps his fellow workman, everyone says to his brother, "Be strong!"
