Thus says Yahweh, your redeemer, and he who formed you ina [the] womb: "I [am] Yahweh, who made everything, who stretched out [the] heavens alone, who spread out the earth--who [was] with me?--
who frustratesb [the] signs of oracle priests and makes a fool of diviners, who drives [the] wise men back and makes their knowledge foolish,
who keepsc the word of his servant and carries out the plan of his messengers, who says of Jerusalem, 'It shall be inhabited,' and of the cities of Judah, 'They shall be rebuilt, and I will restore its ruins';
who says to the deep, 'Dry up! And I will cause your rivers to dry up';
who says of Cyrus, 'My shepherd,' and he shall carry out all my wishesd; and saying of Jerusalem, 'It shall be rebuilt,' and [the] temple, 'It shall be founded.'"
