Jacob whom I have lchosen,
The descendants of Abraham My mfriend.
And called from its farthest regions,
And said to you,
‘You are My servant,
I have chosen you and have not cast you away:
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’
Shall be pashamed and disgraced;
They shall be as nothing,
And those who strive with you shall perish.
5Those who contended with you.
Those who war against you
Shall be as nothing,
As a nonexistent thing.
Saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you.’
14 “Fear not, you qworm Jacob,
You men of Israel!
I will help you,” says the Lord
And your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.
Lit. Men of your strife
