Isaiah 41:2-4 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Who raised up the conqueror from the east?[a]
    Who commissioned him for his righteous purpose?[b]
    The Lord hands nations over to him[c]
    to trample kings under his feet,[d]
    to make them like dust with his sword[e]
    and like windblown chaff with his bow.[f]
Swiftly he pursues them and advances unscathed
    as he passes over unfamiliar land.[g]
Who achieved all this and made it happen?
    Who guides the destiny of each generation[h]
    from the first until now?
    I am the one! I am Yahweh, the first,
    the unchanging one who will be there in the end!”
