13 My own hand laid the foundations of the earth,(A)
    and my right hand spread out the heavens;(B)
when I summon them,
    they all stand up together.(C)

14 “Come together,(D) all of you, and listen:
    Which of the idols has foretold(E) these things?
The Lord’s chosen ally(F)
    will carry out his purpose(G) against Babylon;(H)
    his arm will be against the Babylonians.[a]
15 I, even I, have spoken;
    yes, I have called(I) him.
I will bring him,
    and he will succeed(J) in his mission.
