Isaiah 41:2-4 The Passion Translation (TPT)
2 Who raised up the conqueror from the east?
Who commissioned him for his righteous purpose?
The Lord hands nations over to him
to trample kings under his feet,
to make them like dust with his sword
and like windblown chaff with his bow.
3 Swiftly he pursues them and advances unscathed
as he passes over unfamiliar land.
4 Who achieved all this and made it happen?
Who guides the destiny of each generation
from the first until now?
I am the one! I am Yahweh, the first,
the unchanging one who will be there in the end!”
