Isaiah 45:1 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Chapter 45

Thus says the Lord to his anointed,[a] Cyrus,
    whose right hand I grasp,
Subduing nations before him,
    stripping kings of their strength,
Opening doors before him,
    leaving the gates unbarred:

Footnotes:

  1. 45:1 Anointed: in Hebrew, mashiah, from which the word “Messiah” is derived; from its Greek translation, Christos, we have the title “Christ.” Applied to kings, “anointed” originally referred only to those of Israel, but it is here given to Cyrus because he is the agent of the Lord.

Isaiah 45:4-6 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

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.
I am the Lord, there is no other,
    there is no God besides me.
It is I who arm you, though you do not know me,
    so that all may know, from the rising of the sun
    to its setting, that there is none besides me.[a]
I am the Lord, there is no other.
