Isaiah 46

Bel has fallen, Nebo is broken to pieces, their graven images have gone to the wild beasts and the cattle; you take them packed up as a burden to the weary, exhausted, hungry, and at the same time helpless man; who will not be able to save themselves from war, but they themselves are led away captive. Hear Me, O house of Jacob, and all the remnant of Israel, who are borne by Me from the womb, and taught by Me from infancy, even to old age; I am He; and until you have grown old, I am He; I bear you, I have made, and I will relieve, I will take up and save you. To whom have you compared Me? See and consider, you that go astray. They that furnish gold out of a purse, and silver by weight, will weigh it in a scale, and they hire a goldsmith and make idols, and bow down, and worship them. They bear it upon the shoulder, and go; and if they put it upon its place, it remains, it cannot move; and whosoever shall cry to it, it cannot hear; it cannot save him from trouble. Therefore remember these things, and groan; repent, you that have gone astray, return in your heart; and remember the former things of old; for I am God, and there is none besides Me, 10 declaring beforehand the latter events before they come to pass, and they are accomplished together; and I said, all My counsel shall stand, and I will do all things that I have planned; 11 calling a bird from the east, and from a land afar off, for the things which I have planned; I have spoken, and brought him; I have created and made him; I have brought him, and prospered his way. 12 Hearken to Me, you senseless ones, that are far from righteousness; 13 I have brought near My righteousness, and I will not be slow with the salvation that is from Me; I have given salvation in Zion to Israel for glory.
