Isaiah 42:5-9

Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein: I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house. I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.

 

God, the mighty Creator, now addresses the Messiah and tells what He proposes to accomplish through this One whom He has called in righteousness. God will not share His glory with another, and least of all with carved images. His past predictions have come to pass, and now He reveals the future once more.
