6 Thus says Yahweh, the king of Israel,
and its redeemer, Yahweh of hosts:
“I am the first, and I am the last,
and there is no god besides me.
7 And who is like me? Let him proclaime it!
And let him declare it and set it in order for me
⌊since I established an eternal people⌋f and things that are to come,
and let them tell them the things that are coming.
8 You must not tremble,g
and you must not be paralyzed with fear.
Have I not made you hear from of oldh
and declared it, and you are my witnesses?
Is there a god besides me?
And there is no rock! I know none!”
Literally “from my placing a people of eternity”
Or “be startled”
