Isaiah 42:5-9

5This is what God, the Lord, says —
who created the heavens and stretched them out,
who spread out the earth and what comes from it,
who gives breath to the people on it
and spirit to those who walk on it  —
6“I am the Lord. I have called you
for a righteous purpose,
and I will hold you by your hand.
I will watch over you, and I will appoint you
to be a covenant for the people
and a light to the nations,
7in order to open blind eyes,
to bring out prisoners from the dungeon,
and those sitting in darkness from the prison house.
8I am the Lord. That is my name,
and I will not give my glory to another
or my praise to idols.
9The past events have indeed happened.
Now I declare new events;
I announce them to you before they occur.”
