The Passion Translation
13 With my mighty hand I laid the foundation of the earth;
with the span of my right hand I spread out the cosmos.
And when I speak to them, they both stand at attention.
14 Now, all of you gather around and listen.
Which of the gods has foretold these things?
I, Yahweh, love this man,
and he[a] will carry out my purpose against Babylon.
He will be my “arm of might” against the Babylonians!
15 I am the one; yes, I am the one
who called him by name before he was born.
I have led him forward on a prosperous, successful path.
- Isaiah 48:14 Most scholars view this man to be Cyrus.
