New American Bible (Revised Edition)
2 I will go before you
and level the mountains;
Bronze doors[a] I will shatter,
iron bars I will snap.(A)
3 I will give you treasures of darkness,
riches hidden away,
That you may know I am the Lord,
the God of Israel, who calls you by name.
4 For the sake of Jacob, my servant,
of Israel my chosen one,
I have called you by name,
giving you a title, though you do not know me.(B)
- 45:2 Bronze doors: those defending the city gates of Babylon.
