Isaiah 44:28; Isaiah 45:1; Isaiah 45:13

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.


Cyrus, God's Instrument

45  Thus says the Lord to phis anointed, to Cyrus,

qwhose right hand I have grasped,

to subdue nations before him

and rto loose the belts of kings,

to open doors before him

that gates may not be closed:


13  mI have stirred him up in righteousness,

nand I will make all his ways level;

ohe shall build my city

pand set my exiles free,

not for price or reward,

says the Lord of hosts.
