“Listen to me, my people; give heed to me, O my nation: The law shall go forth from me; my precepts shall be a light to the peoples.

“My Lord Jehovah comes with power; his arm presides for him. His reward is with him; his work precedes him. Like a shepherd he pastures his flock: the lambs he gathers up with his arm and carries in his bosom; the ewes that give milk he leads gently along” (Isaiah 40:10–11).
“Awake, arise; clothe yourself with power, O arm of Jehovah! Bestir yourself, as in ancient times, as in generations of old. Was it not you who carved up Rahab, you who slew the dragon? Was it not you who dried up the Sea, the waters of the mighty deep, and made of ocean depths a way by which the redeemed might pass? Let the ransomed of Jehovah return! Let them come singing to Zion, their heads crowned with everlasting joy; let them obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing flee away” (Isaiah 51:9–11).
“Jehovah has bared his holy arm in the eyes of all nations, that all ends of the earth may see our God’s salvation. Turn away, depart; touch nothing defiled as you leave [Babylon]. Come out of her and be pure, you who bear Jehovah’s vessels. But you shall not leave in haste or go in flight: Jehovah will go before you, the God of Israel behind you” (Isaiah 52:10–12).
“Jehovah saw that there was no justice, and it displeased him. When he saw it, he wondered why there was no man, no one who would intercede. So his own arm brought about salvation for him; his righteousness rallied to his cause. He put on righteousness as a breastplate and made salvation the helmet on his head; he clothed himself with vengeance for a garment and wrapped himself in fury as in a robe. According to what they deserve, he will repay them: wrath upon his adversaries, reprisals upon his enemies; to the isles he will render retribution” (Isaiah 59:15–18).
“For I had resolved on a day of vengeance, and the year of my redeemed had come. I glanced around, but none would lend help; I glared, but no one would assist. So my own arm brought about salvation for me, and my wrath, it assisted me. I trod nations underfoot in my anger; I made them drunk by my rage when I cast their glory to the ground” (Isaiah 63:4–6).
“Jehovah will cause his voice to resound, and make visible his arm descending in furious rage, with flashes of devouring fire, explosive discharges and pounding hail” (Isaiah 30:30).

“Jehovah has sworn by his right hand, his mighty arm: I will no more let your grain be food for your enemies, nor shall foreigners drink the new wine you have toiled for. Those who harvest it shall eat it, giving praise to Jehovah; those who gather it shall drink it within the environs of my sanctuary” (Isaiah 62:8–9).
