Isaiah 45:14-22

A.  (14) Thus saith the LORD, The labour of Egypt, and merchandise of Ethiopia and of the Sabeans, men of stature, shall come over unto thee, and they shall be thine: they shall come after thee; in chains they shall come over, and they shall fall down unto thee, they shall make supplication unto thee, saying, Surely God is in thee; and there is none else, there is no God. (15) Verily thou art a God that hidest thyself, O God of Israel, the Saviour.

B.(16) They shall be ashamed, and also confounded, all of them: they shall go to confusion together that are makers of idols.

C.(17) But Israel shall be saved in the LORD with an everlasting salvation:

B’. ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end.

A’.(18) For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens;  God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited:  I am the LORD; and there is none else. (19) I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth I said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the LORD speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.

A. (20) Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, ye that are escaped of the nations:

B. they have no knowledge that set up the wood of their graven image, and pray unto a god that cannot save.

A’. (21) Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together:

B’. who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time?   have not I the LORD?

A’. a. and there is no God else beside me;

b. a just God and a Saviour;

c. there is none beside me.

b’.(22) Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth:

a’. for I am God, and there is none else.
