Isaiah 44:28

That saith of Cyrus, He is my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasure: even saying to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be built; and to the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid.

 

This prophecy concerning Cyrus is remarkable in that it mentions him by name 150 to 200 years before he was born. He is also called by God “My shepherd”. Cyrus is named as the one whom God will use to deliver His people from Babylon and to authorize the rebuilding of the temple.
