Yahweh is the creator (Isa 45:7-45:8)

“I form light.

I create darkness.

I make well being.

I create woe.

I am Yahweh.

I do all these things.

Shower!

O heavens!

From above!

Let the skies rain down righteousness!

Let the earth open!

Thus salvation may spring up.

Let it cause righteousness

To spring up also!

I!

Yahweh!

Have created it.”

Yahweh, in the first person singular, maintains his creative power here in Second Isaiah. He has created light and darkness. He has created good things and bad things. He is Yahweh. He sends showers and rain upon the righteous ones. He wants the earth to open up and let salvation spring forth. The righteous ones should flourish because Yahweh has created all things.
