Contemporary English Version
3 He goes after them so quickly
that his feet
barely touch the ground—
he doesn’t even get hurt.
4 Who makes these things happen?
Who controls human events?
I do! I am the Lord.
I was there at the beginning;
I will be there at the end.
5 Islands and foreign nations
saw what I did
as they came near.
New International Version
3 He pursues them and moves on unscathed,(A)
by a path his feet have not traveled before.
4 Who has done this and carried it through,
calling(B) forth the generations from the beginning?(C)
I, the Lord—with the first of them
and with the last(D)—I am he.(E)”
