Isaiah 45:23-25 International Standard Version (ISV)

Every Knee will Bow

23 By myself I have sworn—
    from my mouth has gone out integrity,
        a promise[a] that won’t be revoked:
‘To me every knee will bow,
    and[b] every tongue will swear.’
24 One will say of me,[c]
    ‘Only in the Lord are victories and might.’
All who raged against him will come[d] to him
    and will be put to shame.
25 In the Lord all the descendants of Israel
    will triumph and make their boast.”

23 By myself I have sworn,
    my mouth has uttered in all integrity
    a word that will not be revoked:
Before me every knee will bow;
    by me every tongue will swear.
24 They will say of me, ‘In the Lord alone
    are deliverance and strength.’”
All who have raged against him
