Isaiah 43:1–4


43 Now this is what the Lord says—

the one who created you, Jacob,

and the one who formed you, Israela

“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;b

I have called you by your name; you are mine.c

I will be with youd

when you pass through the waters,e

and when you pass through the rivers,

they will not overwhelm you.

You will not be scorched

when you walk through the fire,f

and the flame will not burn you.

For I am the Lord your God,g

the Holy One of Israel, and your Savior.h

I have given Egypt as a ransom for you,

Cush and Seba in your place.

Because you are precious in my sighti

and honored, and I love you,j

I will give people in exchange for you

and nations instead of your life.
