Remember this, and stand firm. Keep it in mind, you rebels.
"Remember things that happened at the beginning, long ago - that I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me.
At the beginning I announce the end, proclaim in advance things not yet done; and I say that my plan will hold, I will do everything I please to do.
I call a bird of prey from the east, the man I intended, from a distant country. I have spoken and will bring it about; I have made a plan, and I will fulfill it.
Listen to me, you stubborn people, so far from righteousness:
I am bringing my justice nearer, it is not far away; my salvation will not be delayed, I will place my salvation in Tziyon for Isra'el my glory.
