Isaiah 44:24-27

Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself; That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish; That confirmeth the word of his servant, and performeth the counsel of his messengers; that saith to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be inhabited; and to the cities of Judah, Ye shall be built, and I will raise up the decayed places thereof: That saith to the deep, Be dry, and I will dry up thy rivers:

 

God presents Himself to the faithful remnant as Redeemer, Jehovah (the LORD), Creator, Protector, and Restorer. He frustrated the predictions of the Chaldean babblers and diviners and the wisdom of the wise. He confirmed the predictions of His own prophets that Jerusalem and Judah would be restored, and that His people would return from captivity under the decree of Cyrus.
