Remember this and consider, a recall it to mind, you transgressors,
remember the former things of old; for I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is no one like me,
declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done, saying, "My purpose shall stand, and I will fulfill my intention,"
calling a bird of prey from the east, the man for my purpose from a far country. I have spoken, and I will bring it to pass; I have planned, and I will do it.
Listen to me, you stubborn of heart, you who are far from deliverance:
I bring near my deliverance, it is not far off, and my salvation will not tarry; I will put salvation in Zion, for Israel my glory.
