The Lord Introduces His Servant
(8) But you, Israel, my servant, Jacob, whom I have chosen,
The offspring of Abraham, my friend;
(9) You whom I took from the ends of the earth,
And called from the farthest corners,
Saying to you, “You are my servant,
I have chosen you and not cast you off.”
(10) Do not fear, for I am with you,
Do not be afraid, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
I will uphold you with my victorious right hand.
(11) Yes, all who are incensed against you
Shall be ashamed and disgraced;
Those who strive against you shall be as nothing and shall perish..
(13) For I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand;
It is I who say to you, “Do not fear, I will help you.”
(14) Do not fear, you worm Jacob, you insect Israel!
I will help you, says the Lord;
Your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel.
