Treasury of Scripture

Yes, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it?

before

Isaiah 57:15

Psalm 90:2

Psalm 93:2

none

Deuteronomy 28:31
Thine ox shall be slain before thine eyes, and thou shalt not eat thereof: thine ass shall be violently taken away from before thy face, and shall not be restored to thee: thy sheep shall be given unto thine enemies, and thou shalt have none to rescue them.

Deuteronomy 32:39

Psalm 50:22
Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.

I will work

Isaiah 46:10
Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

Job 9:12
Behold, he taketh away, who can hinder him? who will say unto him, What doest thou?

Job 34:14,15,29

let it.

Isaiah 14:27
For the LORD of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?









(13) Who shall let it?--Literally, who shall turn it back? One of the numerous echoes from Job (Isaiah 9:12; Isaiah 11:10).

Verse 13. - Yea, before the day was I am he. So the LXX., Jerome, and Stier; but most moderns translate, "Yea, from this time forth I am he" (setup. Ezekiel 48:35). Kay, however, thinks that the translation of the Authorized Version may stand. Who shall let it? literally, as in Isaiah 14:27, who shall turn it back? i.e. "reverse it, undo it." Surely no one.
