Bible: Isaiah 42:5-9
42:5 This is what the true God, 1 the
the one who created the sky and stretched it out,
the one who fashioned the earth and everything that lives on it, 2
the one who gives breath to the people on it,
and life to those who live on it: 3
42:6 “I, the
I take hold of your hand.
42:7 to open blind eyes, 9
to release prisoners 10 from dungeons,
those who live in darkness from prisons.
The Lord Intervenes
42:8 I am the
I will not share my glory with anyone else,
or the praise due me with idols.
42:9 Look, my earlier predictive oracles have come to pass; 11
now I announce new events.
Before they begin to occur,
I reveal them to you.” 12
