Isaiah 44:26; Isaiah 44:28; Psalm 33:11; Proverbs 19:21; Hebrews 6:17

26  jwho confirms the word of his servant

and fulfills the counsel of his messengers,

who says of Jerusalem, She shall be inhabited,

kand of the cities of Judah, They shall be built,

and I will raise up their ruins;

28  who says of mCyrus, He is nmy shepherd,

and he shall fulfill all my purpose;

saying of Jerusalem, She shall be built,

oand of the temple, Your foundation shall be laid.

11  wThe counsel of the Lord stands forever,

the plans of his heart to all generations.

21  iMany are the plans in the mind of a man,

but jit is the purpose of the Lord kthat will stand.

17 So when God desired to show more convincingly to ithe heirs of the promise jthe unchangeable character of his purpose, khe guaranteed it with an oath,
