A.6 Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel,
and his redeemer the LORD of hosts;
I am the first, and I am the last;
and beside me there is no God.
B.7 And who, as I, shall call,
and shall declare it,
and set it in order for me,
since I appointed the ancient people?
C. and the things that are coming,
and shall come,
let them shew unto them.
B’. 8 Fear ye not, neither be afraid:
have not I told thee from that time,
and have declared it?
ye are even my witnesses.
A’. Is there a God beside me?
yea, there is no God;
I know not any.
