The call of Cyrus (Isa 46:10-46:11)

“Yahweh said.

‘My purpose shall stand.

I will finish my intention.’

I am calling a bird of prey

From the east.

I am calling the man

Of my purpose

From a far country.

I have spoken.

I will bring it to pass.

I have planned it.

I will do it.’”

Second Isaiah once again insists that Yahweh has called the bird of prey from the East in a far country, King Cyrus of Persia, for his own purpose. He was going to make sure that Cyrus could finish off his intentions and purposes. He has said this, and so it shall be. He has planned it, and so it will happen, no questions asked.
