Isaiah 42:16-18


42:16 I will lead the blind along an unfamiliar way; 1 

I will guide them down paths they have never traveled. 2 

I will turn the darkness in front of them into light,

and level out the rough ground. 3 

This is what I will do for them.

I will not abandon them.

42:17 Those who trust in idols

will turn back and be utterly humiliated, 4 

those who say to metal images, ‘You are our gods.’”
