24 The Eternal, your rescuing hero who formed you before birth, declares,
Eternal One: I am the Eternal, Creator of all there is and will be.
I alone stretched out the heavens and spread out the blue earth.
25 I confound the lying swindlers who claim to tell the future,
and I make the fortune-tellers look like fools.
I stop the highbrow intellectuals in their tracks,
and I show the fault of their reasoning.
26 But I stand behind the words of My servants,
and I accomplish what they predict.
The one who says about Jerusalem, “This place will be built up again”;
about Judah’s cities, “They will be restored”:
I confirm their predictions. They will rise from their ruins.
New International Version
Jerusalem to Be Inhabited
I am the Lord,
the Maker of all things,
who stretches out the heavens,(D)
who spreads out the earth(E) by myself,
25 who foils(F) the signs of false prophets
and makes fools of diviners,(G)
who overthrows the learning of the wise(H)
and turns it into nonsense,(I)
26 who carries out the words(J) of his servants
and fulfills(K) the predictions of his messengers,
