Isaiah 41:2-4 American Standard Version (ASV)
2 Who hath raised up one from the east, [a]whom he calleth in righteousness to his foot? he giveth nations before him, and maketh him rule over kings; [b]he giveth them as the dust to his sword, as the driven stubble to his bow. 3 He pursueth them, and passeth on safely, even by a way that he had not gone with his feet. 4 Who hath wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I, Jehovah, the first, and with the last, I am he.
