“I myself will go before you,
    and he[a] will make the mountains[b] level;
I’ll shatter bronze doors
    and cut through iron bars.
I’ll give you concealed treasures[c]
    and riches hidden in secret places,
so that you’ll know that it is I, the Lord,
    the God of Israel, who calls you by name.
For the sake of Jacob my servant,
    Israel[d] my chosen,
I’ve called you,
    and he has established you with a name,[e]
        although you have not acknowledged me.
