      Bible Text: Isaiah 45:5-12 |


      Isaiah 45:5-12 (ESV)

      I am the Lord, and there is no other,
          besides me there is no God;
          I equip you, though you do not know me,
      that people may know, from the rising of the sun
          and from the west, that there is none besides me;
          I am the Lord, and there is no other.
      I form light and create darkness;
          I make well-being and create calamity;
          I am the Lord, who does all these things.

      “Shower, O heavens, from above,
          and let the clouds rain down righteousness;
      let the earth open, that salvation and righteousness may bear fruit;
          let the earth cause them both to sprout;
          I the Lord have created it.

      “Woe to him who strives with him who formed him,
          a pot among earthen pots!
      Does the clay say to him who forms it, ‘What are you making?’
          or ‘Your work has no handles’?
      10 Woe to him who says to a father, ‘What are you begetting?’
          or to a woman, ‘With what are you in labor?’”

      11 Thus says the Lord,
          the Holy One of Israel, and the one who formed him:
      “Ask me of things to come;
          will you command me concerning my children and the work of my hands?<sup class="footnote" style="box-sizing: border-box; font-size: 0.625em; line-height: 22px; position: relative; vertical-align: top; top: 0px;" data-fn="#fen-ESV-18573a" data-link="[a]">[a]
      12 I made the earth
          and created man on it;
      it was my hands that stretched out the heavens,
          and I commanded all their host.
