24 The one who rescued you is the Lord,
    the one who formed you in your mother’s womb.
He says, “I, the Lord, made everything.
    I put the skies there myself.
    I spread out the earth before me.”

25 False prophets tell lies, but the Lord shows that their lies are false. He makes fools of those who do magic. He confuses even the wise. They think they know a lot, but he makes them look foolish. 26 The Lord sends his servants to tell his messages to the people, and he makes those messages come true. He sends messengers to tell the people what they should do, and he proves that the advice is good.
