Isaiah 45:19; Isaiah 48:16; John 7:4

19  yI did not speak in secret,

in a land of darkness;

I did not say to the offspring of Jacob,

zSeek me in vain.1

I the Lord speak athe truth;

I declare what is right.


16  yDraw near to me, hear this:

from the beginning I have not spoken in secret,

from the time it came to be I have been there.

And now zthe Lord God has sent me, and his Spirit.


For no one works in secret if he seeks to be known openly. If you do these things, tshow yourself to the world.
