Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people,
from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb;
from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention
of my name.
And he hath made my mouth like a sharp sword;
in the shadow of his hand hath he hid me,
and made me a polished shaft;
in his quiver hath he hid me;
And said unto me, Thou art my servant,
O Israel, in whom I will be glorified.
Isaiah 49:1-3 KJV
