I, even I, am the LORD,1 and apart from me there is no savior.212
I have revealed and saved and proclaimed-- I, and not some foreign god3 among you. You are my witnesses,4" declares the LORD, "that I am God.
Yes, and from ancient days5 I am he.6 No one can deliver out of my hand. When I act, who can reverse it?"7
This is what the LORD says-- your Redeemer,8 the Holy One9 of Israel: "For your sake I will send to Babylon and bring down as fugitives10 all the Babylonians,a11 in the ships in which they took pride.
I am the LORD,12 your Holy One, Israel's Creator,13 your King.14"
This is what the LORD says-- he who made a way through the sea, a path through the mighty waters,1517
who drew out16 the chariots and horses,17 the army and reinforcements together,18 and they lay19 there, never to rise again, extinguished, snuffed out like a wick:2018
"Forget the former things;21 do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing!22 Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert23 and streams in the wasteland.2420
The wild animals25 honor me, the jackals26 and the owls, because I provide water27 in the desert and streams in the wasteland, to give drink to my people, my chosen,
the people I formed28 for myself29 that they may proclaim my praise.30
