So remember that, you who refuse to obey me. Keep it in your minds and hearts.
"Remember what happened in the past. Think about what took place long ago. I am God. There is no other God. I am God. There is no one like me.
Before something even happens, I announce how it will end. In fact, from times long ago I announced what was still to come. I say, 'My plan will succeed. I will do anything I want to do.'
I will send for a man from the east to carry out my plan. From a land far away, he will come like a bird that eats dead bodies. I will bring about what I have said. I will do what I have planned.
Listen to me, you stubborn people. Pay attention, you who refuse to do what is right.
The time is almost here for me to make everything right. It is not far away. The time for me to save you will not be put off. I will save the city of Zion. I will bring honor to Israel.
