9 I will listen to what the Lord God may be saying to me. For he will speak peace to his people, and to his saints, and to those who are being converted to the heart.
10 So then, truly his salvation is near to those who fear him, so that glory may inhabit our land.
11 Mercy and truth have met each other. Justice and peace have kissed.
12 Truth has risen from the earth, and justice has gazed down from heaven.
13 For so will the Lord give goodness, and our earth will give her fruit.
14 Justice will walk before him, and he will set his steps upon the way.
Isaiah 45:6c-8, 18, 21c-25
I am the Lord, and there is no other.
7 I form the light and create the darkness. I make peace and create disaster. I, the Lord, do all these things.
8 Send down dew from above, O heavens, and let the clouds rain down upon the just! Let the earth open and spring forth a savior! And let justice rise up at once! I, the Lord, have created him.
I am a just God who saves, and there is no one except me.
22 All ends of the earth, be converted to me, and you will be saved. For I am God, and there is no other.
23 I have sworn by myself. The Word of justice will proceed from my mouth, and it will not turn back.
24 For every knee shall bend to me, and every tongue shall swear it.
25 Therefore, he will say, "In the Lord are my justices and my dominion." They will go to him. And all who fight against him will be confounded.
