Vs. 5-6— The coasts and islands see and are afraid, the whole earth trembles. They approach and arrive. 6 Each one helps the other, and says to another, “Take courage!”

Isaiah 41: 8-9— But you, Israel, my servant, Jacob, whom I have chosen, descendant of Abraham, my friend—9 I brought you from the ends of the earth and called you from its farthest corners. I said to you: You are my servant; I have chosen you; I haven’t rejected you.

Isaiah 44: 6-8—  This is what the Lord, the King of Israel and its Redeemer, the Lord of Armies, says: I am the first and I am the last. There is no God but me. 7 Who, like me, can announce the future? Let him say so and make a case before me since I have established an ancient people. Let these gods declare the coming things, and what will take place. 8 …Is there any God but me?

Revelation 22: 13(Jesus said), I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.

I will not abandon them. 18 I will open rivers on the barren heights, and springs in the middle of the plains. I will turn the desert into a pool and dry land into springs. 19 I will plant cedars, acacias, myrtles, and olive trees in the wilderness. I will put juniper trees, elms, and cypress trees together in the desert,
