"Who told you from the beginning that this would happen? Who predicted this, making you admit that he was right? No one said a word!
Gather the nations together! Assemble the peoples of the world! Which of their idols has ever foretold such things? Which can predict what will happen tomorrow? Where are the witnesses of such predictions? Who can verify that they spoke the truth?

Only I can tell you the future before it even happens. Everything I plan will come to pass, for I do whatever I wish.
Long ago I told you what was going to happen. Then suddenly I took action, and all my predictions came true.
