GOD’S WORD Translation
2 I will go ahead of you, Cyrus, and smooth out the rough places.
I will break down the bronze doors and cut through the iron bars.
3 I will give you treasures from dark places and hidden stockpiles.
Then you will know that I, the Lord God of Israel,
have called you by name.
4 For the sake of my servant Jacob,
Israel, my chosen one,
I have called you by name.
I have given you a title of honor, although you don’t know me.
