"Remember this, and show yourselves men; bring it again to mind, O ye transgressors.
Remember the former things of old; for I am God, and there is none other; I am God, and there is none like Me,
declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, `My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure,'
calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth My counsel from a far country. Yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.
"Hearken unto Me, ye stouthearted, that are far from righteousness:
I bring near My righteousness; it shall not be far off, and My salvation shall not tarry; and I will place salvation in Zion for Israel My glory.
