New International Version
2 “Who has stirred(A) up one from the east,(B)
calling him in righteousness(C) to his service[a]?(D)
He hands nations over to him
and subdues kings before him.
He turns them to dust(E) with his sword,
to windblown chaff(F) with his bow.(G)
- Isaiah 41:2 Or east, / whom victory meets at every step

2 (A)Who stirred up one from the east
whom victory meets at every (B)step?[a]
(C)He gives up nations before him,
so that he tramples kings underfoot;
he makes them like dust with his sword,
(D)like driven stubble with his bow.
- Isaiah 41:2 Or whom righteousness calls to follow?
