24 Thus saith the Lord, zthy redeemer,
And ahe that formed thee from the womb,
I am the Lord that maketh all things;
25 That frustrateth the tokens of fthe liars,
That turneth wise men backward,
And kmaketh their knowledge foolish;
26 That confirmeth the word of lhis servant,
And performeth the counsel of his messengers;
That saith to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be inhabited;
And mto the cities of Judah, Ye shall be built,
And I will raise up the †decayed places thereof:
27 nThat saith to the deep, Be dry,
And I will dry up thy rivers:
28 That saith of oCyrus, He is my shepherd,
And shall perform pall my pleasure:
Even saying qto Jerusalem, Thou shalt be built;
And to the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid.
