Cyrus will free the captives of Israel from Babylon—Come unto Jehovah (Christ) and be saved—To Him every knee will bow and every tongue will take an oath.
1 Thus saith the Lord to his aanointed, to bCyrus, whose right hand I have cholden, to dsubdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the etwo leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut;
5 ¶ aI am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:
6 That they may know from the arising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else.
8 Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down arighteousness: let the earth open, and let bthem bring forth csalvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the Lord have created it.
10 Woe unto him that saith unto his father, What begettest thou? or to athe woman, What hast thou brought forth?
14 Thus saith the Lord, The labour of aEgypt, and merchandise of Ethiopia and of the Sabeans, men of stature, shall come over unto thee, and they shall be thine: they shall come bafter thee; in chains they shall come over, and they shall fall down unto thee, they shall make supplication unto thee, saying, Surely God is in thee; and there is cnone else, there is no God.
16 They shall be ashamed, and also confounded, all of them: they shall go to confusion together that are makers of aidols.
18 For thus saith the Lord that acreated 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 binhabited: I am the Lord; and there is none else.
21 Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, 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 beside me; a ajust God and a bSaviour; there is none beside me.
24 Surely, shall one say, in the Lord have I righteousness and astrength: even to him shall men come; and all that are incensed against him shall be ashamed.
25 In the Lord shall all the seed of Israel be ajustified, and shall glory.
