Isaiah 48:13-15 New Century Version (NCV)

13 I made the earth with my own hands.
    With my right hand I spread out the skies.
When I call them,
    they come together before me.”

14 All of you, come together and listen.
    None of the gods said these things would happen.
The Lord has chosen someone
    to attack the Babylonians;
    he will carry out his wishes against Babylon.

15 “I have spoken; I have called him.[a]
    I have brought him, and I will make him successful.

Isaiah 48:13-15 New International Version (NIV)

13 My own hand laid the foundations of the earth,
    and my right hand spread out the heavens;
when I summon them,
    they all stand up together.

14 “Come together, all of you, and listen:
    Which of the idols has foretold these things?
The Lord’s chosen ally
    will carry out his purpose against Babylon;
    his arm will be against the Babylonians.[a]
15 I, even I, have spoken;
    yes, I have called him.
I will bring him,
    and he will succeed in his mission.
