4Who hath wrought and done [it], calling the generations from the beginning? I the LORD, the first, and with the last; I [am] he. 5The isles saw [it], and feared; the ends of the earth were afraid, drew near, and came. 6They helped every one his neighbour; and [every one] said to his brother, Be of good courage.7So the carpenter encouraged the goldsmith, [and] he that smootheth [with] the hammer him that smote the anvil, saying, It [is] ready for the sodering: and he fastened it with nails, [that] it should not be moved. 8But thou, Israel, [art] my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend.
