Isaiah 45:18 shares that for this is what God says, the creator of the heavens, the true God, the one who formed the earth, its Maker who firmly established it, who did not create it simply for nothing, but formed it to be inhabited. I am Jehovah there is no one else.
Isaiah 48:17, 18 shares that if only we would listen, says, your Repurchaser, the holy one of Isaiah, I Jehovah am your God, the one teaching you to benefit yourself, the one guiding you in the way you should walk, if only would pay attention to my commandment!
