"I am the LORD, and there is no other;
Besides Me there is no God. I will gird you, though you have not known Me;
That men may know from the rising to the setting of the sun
that there is no one besides Me.
I am the LORD, and there is no other,
The One forming light and creating darkness,
Causing well-being and creating calamity;
I am the LORD who does all these.
Drip down, O heavens, from above,
And let the clouds pour down righteousness;
Let the earth open up and salvation bear fruit,
And righteousness spring up with it.
I, the LORD, have created it."
