Bible: Isaiah 48:16-17

48:16 Approach me! Listen to this!

From the very first I have not spoken in secret;

when it happens, 1  I am there.”

So now, the sovereign Lord has sent me, accompanied by his spirit. 2 

48:17 This is what the Lord, your protector, 3  says,

the Holy One of Israel: 4 

“I am the Lord your God,

who teaches you how to succeed,

who leads you in the way you should go.
