Isaiah 41:5-7

5 The islands have seen it and fear; the ends of the earth tremble. They approach and come forward;
6 they help each other and say to their companions, “Be strong!”
7 The metalworker encourages the goldsmith, and the one who smooths with the hammer spurs on the one who strikes the anvil. One says of the welding, “It is good.” The other nails down the idol so it will not topple.
