Isaiah 41:1-6 HNV

1 Keep silence before me, islands; and let the peoples renew their strength: let them come near; then let them speak; let us come near together to judgment.
2 Who has raised up one from the east, whom he calls in righteousness to his foot? he gives nations before him, and makes him rule over kings; he gives them as the dust to his sword, as the driven stubble to his bow.
3 He pursues them, and passes on safely, even by a way that he had not gone with his feet.
4 Who has worked and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I, the LORD, the first, and with the last, I am he.
5 The isles have seen, and fear; the ends of the eretz tremble; they draw near, and come.
6 They help everyone his neighbor; and [every one] says to his brother, Be of good courage.
