Isaiah 41:8–13

But thou, qIsrael, art rmy servant,

Jacob rrwhom I have chosen,

The seed of sAbraham my friend.

Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth,

And called thee from tthe chief men thereof,

And said unto thee, rThou art my servant;

I rrhave chosen thee, and not cast thee away.

10  uFear thou not; vfor I am with thee:

wBe not dismayed; for I am thy God:

vI will strengthen thee; yea, uI will help thee;

Yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

11  Behold, all xthey that were incensed against thee shall be xashamed and confounded:

yThey shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish.

12  Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee:

They that war against thee shall be zas nothing, and zas a thing of nought.

13  For I the Lord thy God zzwill hold thy right hand,

Saying unto thee, uFear not; uI will help thee.
