Isaiah 45

"Ask me of things to come; 
will you command me concerning 
my children and the work of my hands? 
I made the earth and created man on it; 
it was my hands that stretched out 
the heavens, and I commanded all their host.
I have stirred him up in righteousness,
and I will make all his ways level;
he shall build my city and set my exiles free,
not for price or reward,” says the Lord of hosts.

Isaiah 45:11b-13


  1. In these beautiful verses God assures his worshippers that their comfort is secure with his right hand, Cyrus who will release them from captivity.

  2. Isaiah has always been a tough one for me to understand, but this is beautiful & interesting. Many people say President Trump is a modern day Cyrus; I'm not convinced (yet).

    1. I like them too, Natalia. Though like is not a strong enough word...
