3 "I 1declared the former things long ago And they went forth from My mouth, and I proclaimed them. 2Suddenly I acted, and they 3came to pass.
4 "Because I know that you are 4obstinate, And your 5neck is an iron sinew And your 6forehead bronze,
5 Therefore I declared them to you long ago, Before they took place I proclaimed them to you, So that you would not say, 'My 7idol has done them, And my graven image and my molten image have commanded them.'
6 "You have heard; look at all this. And you, will you not declare it? I proclaim to you 8new things from this time, Even hidden things which you have not known.
