Isaiah 45:5

Context

45:5 I am the Lord, I have no peer, 1 

there is no God but me.

I arm you for battle, 2  even though you do not recognize 3  me.

Isaiah 45:21-22

Context

45:21 Tell me! Present the evidence! 4 

Let them consult with one another!

Who predicted this in the past?

Who announced it beforehand?

Was it not I, the Lord?

I have no peer, there is no God but me,

a God who vindicates and delivers; 5 

there is none but me.

45:22 Turn to me so you can be delivered, 6 

all you who live in the earth’s remote regions!

For I am God, and I have no peer.

1 tn Heb “and there is none besides.” On the use of עוֹד (’od) here, see BDB 729 s.v. 1.c.

2 tn Heb “gird you” (so NASB) or “strengthen you” (so NIV).

3 tn Or “know” (NAB, NCV, NRSV, TEV, CEV, NLT); NIV “have not acknowledged.”

4 tn Heb “Declare! Bring near!”; NASB “Declare and set forth your case.” See 41:21.

5 tn Or “a righteous God and deliverer”; NASB, NIV, NRSV “a righteous God and a Savior.”

6 tn The Niphal imperative with prefixed vav (ו) indicates purpose after the preceding imperative. The Niphal probably has a tolerative sense, “allow yourselves to be delivered, accept help.”
