New American Standard Bible
3 I (A)declared the former things long ago,
And they went out of My mouth, and I proclaimed them.
(B)Suddenly I acted, and they (C)came to pass.
4 Because I know that you are [a](D)obstinate,
And your (E)neck is an iron tendon
And your (F)forehead bronze,
5 Therefore I declared them to you long ago,
Before [b]they took place I proclaimed them to you,
So that you would not say, ‘My (G)idol has done them,
And my carved image and my cast metal image have commanded them.’
