Isaiah 45

45:1 Thus saith the LORD to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right
 hand I have held to subdue nations before him; and I will loose
 the loins of kings, to open before him the two-leaved gates,
 and the gates shall not be shut;
45:2 I will go before thee, and make the crooked places
 straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut
 asunder the bars of iron:
45:3 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden
 riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the
 LORD, who call [thee] by thy name, [am] the God of Israel.
45:4 For Jacob my servant's sake, and Israel my elect, I have
 even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou
 hast not known me:
45:5 I [am] the LORD, and [there is] none else, [there is] no
 God besides me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:
45:6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the
 west, that [there is] none besides me. I [am] the LORD, and
 [there is] none else.
45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and
 create evil: I the LORD do all these [things].
45:8 Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour
 down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring
 forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I
 the LORD have created it.
45:9 Woe to him that contendeth with his Maker! [Let] the
 potsherd [contend] with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the
 clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy
 work, He hath no hands?
45:10 Woe to him that saith to [his] father, What begettest
 thou? or to the woman, What hast thou brought forth?
45:11 Thus saith the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his
 Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and
 concerning the work of my hands command ye me.
45:12 I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, [even]
 my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host
 have I commanded.
45:13 I have raised him up in righteousness, and I will direct
 all his ways: he shall build my city, and he shall let go my
 captives, not for price nor reward, saith the LORD of hosts.
45:14 Thus saith the LORD, The labor of Egypt, and merchandise
 of Cush and of the Sabeans, men of stature, shall come over to
 thee, and they shall be thine: they shall come after thee; in
 chains they shall come over, and they shall fall down to thee,
 they shall make supplication to thee, [saying], Surely God [is]
 in thee; and [there is] none else, [there is] no God.
45:15 Verily thou [art] a God that hidest thyself, O God of
 Israel, the Savior.
45:16 They shall be ashamed, and also confounded, all of them:
 they shall go to confusion together [that are] makers of idols.
45:17 [But] Israel shall be saved in the LORD with an
 everlasting salvation: ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded
 world without end.
45:18 For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God
 himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established
 it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I
 [am] the LORD; and [there is] none else.
45:19 I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth:
 I have not said to the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the
 LORD speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.
45:20 Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, ye [that
 have] escaped of the nations: they have no knowledge that set
 up the wood of their graven image, and pray to a god [that]
 cannot save.
45:21 Tell ye, and bring [them] near; yes, let them take counsel
 together: who hath declared this from ancient time? [who] hath
 told it from that time? [have] not I the LORD? and [there is]
 no God else besides me; a just God and a Savior; [there is]
 none besides me.
45:22 Look to me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth:
 for I [am] God, and [there is] none else.
45:23 I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth
 [in] righteousness, and shall not return, That to me every knee
 shall bow, every tongue shall swear.
45:24 Surely, shall [one] say, in the LORD have I righteousness
 and strength: [even] to him shall [men] come; and all that are
 incensed against him shall be ashamed.
45:25 In the LORD shall all the seed of Israel be justified, and
 shall glory.
