"Remember this, you sinners; consider what I have done.
Remember what happened long ago; acknowledge that I alone am God and that there is no one else like me.
From the beginning I predicted the outcome; long ago I foretold what would happen. I said that my plans would never fail, that I would do everything I intended to do.
I am calling a man to come from the east; a he will swoop down like a hawk and accomplish what I have planned. I have spoken, and it will be done.
"Listen to me, you stubborn people who think that victory is far away.
I am bringing the day of victory near - it is not far away at all. My triumph will not be delayed. I will save Jerusalem and bring honor to Israel there."
