(A)“Give attention to me, my people,
    and give ear to me, my nation;
(B)for a law[a] will go out from me,
    and I will set my justice for a light to the peoples.
(C)My righteousness draws near,
    my salvation has gone out,
    and my arms will judge the peoples;
(D)the coastlands hope for me,
    and for my arm they wait.
(E)Lift up your eyes to the heavens,
    and look at the earth beneath;
(F)for the heavens vanish like smoke,
    the earth will wear out like a garment,
    and they who dwell in it will die in like manner;[b]
(G)but my salvation will be forever,
    and my righteousness will never be dismayed.
