The blind people that have eyes shall be brought forth, and the deaf that have ears.

All the nations are gathered together, and the peoples are assembled; who among them can declare this, and announce to us former things? Let them bring their witnesses, that they may be justified; and let them hear, and say: 'It is truth.'

All the nations have been assembled together, and the tribes have been collected. Who among you will announce this, and who will cause us to listen to the things that are first? Let them present their witnesses. Let them act justly, and listen, and say: “It is true.”

Let all the peoples be gathered together and let all the nations be assembled; who among you can declare this and show us the former things? Let them bring forth their witnesses that they may be justified; or let them hear and say, It is truth.

10  Ye are My witnesses, saith YHWH, and My servant whom I have chosen; that ye may know and believe Me, and understand that I am He; before Me there was no God formed, neither shall any be after Me.

10  Be ye my witnesses, and I too am a witness, saith the Lord God, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know, and believe, and understand that I am he: before me there was no other God, and after me there shall be none.

10  You are my witnesses, says the Lord, and you are my servant, whom I have chosen, so that you may know, and may believe in me, and so that you may understand that I am the same. Before me, there was no god formed, and after me there will be none.

11  I, even I, am YHWH; and beside Me there is no saviour.

11  I am God; and beside me there is no Saviour.

11  I am. I am the Lord. And there is no savior apart from me.

12  I have declared, and I have saved, and I have announced, and there was no strange god among you; therefore ye are My witnesses, saith YHWH, and I am God.

12  I have announced, and I have saved. I have caused it to be heard. And there was no stranger among you. You are my witnesses, says the Lord, and I am God.

13  Yea, since the day was I am He, and there is none that can deliver out of My hand; I will work, and who can reverse it?

13  even from the beginning; and there is none that can deliver out of my hands: I will work, and who shall turn it back?
