besides me there is no god.
I arm you, though you do not know me,
so that they may know, from the rising of the sun
and from the west, that there is no one besides me;
I am the Lord, and there is no other. (Isaiah 45:1-6) Responses to the Exile 3

my chosen, in whom my soul delights;
I have put my spirit upon him;
he will bring forth justice to the nations.

and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent,
