20 “Gather together(A) and come;
    assemble, you fugitives from the nations.
Ignorant(B) are those who carry(C) about idols of wood,
    who pray to gods that cannot save.(D)
21 Declare what is to be, present it—
    let them take counsel together.
Who foretold(E) this long ago,
    who declared it from the distant past?(F)
Was it not I, the Lord?
    And there is no God apart from me,(G)
a righteous God(H) and a Savior;(I)
    there is none but me.

22 “Turn(J) to me and be saved,(K)
    all you ends of the earth;(L)
    for I am God, and there is no other.(M)
23 By myself I have sworn,(N)
    my mouth has uttered in all integrity(O)
    a word that will not be revoked:(P)
Before me every knee will bow;(Q)
    by me every tongue will swear.(R)
24 They will say of me, ‘In the Lord alone
    are deliverance(S) and strength.(T)’”

25 But all the descendants(V) of Israel
    will find deliverance(W) in the Lord
    and will make their boast in him.(X)
