God, who at many times and in various manners spoke in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
2 Peter 1:21
For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.
As he spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets, who have been since the world began:
Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.
Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world.
The prophets that have been before me and before you of old prophesied both against many countries, and against great kingdoms, of war, and of evil, and of pestilence.
Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the people be assembled: who among them can declare this, and show us former things? let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified: or let them hear, and say, It is truth.
I have declared the former things from the beginning; and they went forth out of my mouth, and I showed them; I did them suddenly, and they came to pass.
For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
You have heard that it was said by them of old time, You shall not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:
Again, you have heard that it has been said by them of old time, You shall not perjure yourself, but shall perform unto the Lord your oaths:
I remembered your judgments of old, O LORD; and have comforted myself.
In hope of eternal life, which God, who cannot lie, promised before the ages began;
Tell and bring forth your case; yea, let them take counsel together: who has declared this from ancient time? who has told it from that time? have not I the LORD? and there is no other God besides me; a just God and a Savior; there is none besides me.
I have even from the beginning declared it to you; before it came to pass I showed it to you: lest you should say, my idol has done them, and my graven image, and my molten image, has commanded them.
The LORD has done that which he had purposed; he has fulfilled his word that he had commanded in the days of old: he has thrown down, and has not pitied: and he has caused your enemy to rejoice over you, he has set up the might of your adversaries.
Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;
You will show truth to Jacob, and mercy to Abraham, which you have sworn unto our fathers from the days of old.
