"Remember1 this, keep it in mind, take it to heart, you rebels.29
Remember the former things,3 those of long ago;4 I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me.510
I make known the end from the beginning,6 from ancient times,7 what is still to come.8 I say, 'My purpose will stand,9 and I will do all that I please.'
From the east I summon10 a bird of prey;11 from a far-off land, a man to fulfill my purpose. What I have said, that I will bring about; what I have planned,12 that I will do.1312
Listen14 to me, you stubborn-hearted,15 you who are now far from my righteousness.1613
I am bringing my righteousness17 near, it is not far away; and my salvation18 will not be delayed. I will grant salvation to Zion,19 my splendor20 to Israel.
