“He (Cyrus) pursues them and passes along safely,
By a way his feet had not traveled before.
“Who has performed and done this,
Calling forth [and guiding the destinies of] the generations [of the nations] from the beginning?
‘I, the Lord—the first, and with the last [existing before history began, the ever-present, unchanging God]—I am He.’”
The islands and coastlands have seen and they fear;
The ends of the earth tremble;
They have drawn near and have come.
