13 Even [a](A)from eternity (B)I am He,
And there is (C)no one who can rescue from My hand;
(D)I act, and who can reverse it?”

Babylon to Be Destroyed

14 This is what the Lord your (E)Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel says:

“For your sake I have sent to Babylon,
And will bring them all down as fugitives,

15 I am the Lord, your Holy One,
(H)The Creator of Israel, your (I)King.”
