6 “Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel,
And his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts:
a‘I am the First and I am the Last;
Besides Me there is no God.
7 And bwho can proclaim as I do?
Then let him declare it and set it in order for Me,
Since I appointed the ancient people.
And the things that are coming and shall come,
Let them show these to them.
cHave I not told you from that time, and declared it?
dYou are My witnesses.
Is there a God besides Me?
Indeed ethere is no other Rock;
I know not one.’ ”
