13 Yes, my hand founded the earth;
my right hand spread out the sky.
I summon them;
they stand together.
14 All of you, gather together and listen!
Who among them[a] announced these things?
The Lord’s ally[b] will carry out his desire against Babylon;
he will exert his power against the Babylonians.[c]
15 I, I have spoken—
yes, I have summoned him;
I lead him and he will succeed.[d]
