12 “Listen to me, Jacob,
and Israel, ⌊whom I called⌋:p
I am he. I am the first;
also I am the last.
and my right hand spread out the heavens;
when I summonq them, they stand in position together.
Who among them declared these things?
Yahweh loves him;
he shall performr his wish against Babylon
and his arm against ⌊the Chaldeans⌋.s
Indeed, I have called him.
I have brought him,
and he will be successful in his way.
16 Draw near to me; hear this! I have not spoken in secrecy from the ⌊beginning⌋;t
from the time ⌊it came to be⌋,u there I have been;
And now the Lord Yahweh has sent me and his Spirit.”
“I am Yahweh your God, ⌊who teaches⌋v you to profit,
leads you in the way you should go.
Thenw your prosperity would have been like a river,
and your righteousness like the waves of the sea.
It would not be cut off,
and its name would not be destroyed from my presence.”
Flee from Chaldea!
⌊Send it forth⌋c to the end of the earth;
say, “Yahweh has redeemed his servant Jacob!”
he made water flow from the rock for them,
and he split the rock,
and the water gushed out.
