14 Thus says Yahweh:
“The acquisition of Egypt
and the merchandise of Cush
and the Sabeans, tall men,
shall pass over to you;
they shall be yours,
and they shall walk behind you.
They shall pass over in chains,
and they shall bow down to you;
they will pray to you:
‘Surely God is with you, and there is no other.
Besides him there is no God.’ ”
God of Israel, the savior.
the craftsmen of idols go together in insult.
you shall not be ashamed,
and you shall not be humiliated ⌊to all eternity⌋.l
18 For thus says Yahweh, ⌊who created⌋m the heavens,
he is God, ⌊who formed⌋n the earth
and ⌊who made⌋o it.
He himself established it;
he did not create it as emptiness—
he formed it for inhabiting.
“I am Yahweh and there is none besides me.
I have not said to the descendants of Jacob, ‘Seek me ⌊in vain⌋!’p
I, Yahweh, am speaking righteousness,
draw near together, survivors of the nations!
They do not know, those who carry ⌊their wooden idols⌋q
and pray to a god who cannot save.
also let them consult together!
declared it from ⌊of old⌋?t
Was it not I, Yahweh?
And there is no other god besides me,
a righteous God besides me,
and no savior besides me.
for I am God and there is none besides me.
a word thatu shall not return has gone forth from my mouth in righteousness:
‘Every knee shall kneel down to me;
every tongue shall swear.’
He shall come to him, and all those who were angry with him shall be ashamed.
and they shall boast.”
