New International Version
5 “With whom will you compare me or count me equal?
To whom will you liken me that we may be compared?(A)
6 Some pour out gold from their bags
and weigh out silver on the scales;
they hire a goldsmith(B) to make it into a god,
and they bow down and worship it.(C)
7 They lift it to their shoulders and carry(D) it;
they set it up in its place, and there it stands.
From that spot it cannot move.(E)
Even though someone cries out to it, it cannot answer;(F)
it cannot save(G) them from their troubles.
8 “Remember(H) this, keep it in mind,
take it to heart, you rebels.(I)
9 Remember the former things,(J) those of long ago;(K)
I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is none like me.(L)
10 I make known the end from the beginning,(M)
from ancient times,(N) what is still to come.(O)
I say, ‘My purpose will stand,(P)
and I will do all that I please.’
11 From the east I summon(Q) a bird of prey;(R)
from a far-off land, a man to fulfill my purpose.
What I have said, that I will bring about;
what I have planned,(S) that I will do.(T)
12 Listen(U) to me, you stubborn-hearted,(V)
you who are now far from my righteousness.(W)
13 I am bringing my righteousness(X) near,
it is not far away;
and my salvation(Y) will not be delayed.
I will grant salvation to Zion,(Z)
my splendor(AA) to Israel.
