But now, says the LORD— the one who created you, Jacob, the one who formed you, Israel: Don't fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are mine.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; when through the rivers, they won't sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you won't be scorched and flame won't burn you.
I am the LORD your God, the holy one of Israel, your savior. I have given Egypt as your ransom, Cush and Seba in your place.
Because you are precious in my eyes, you are honored, and I love you. I give people in your place, and nations in exchange for your life.
Don't fear, I am with you. From the east I'll bring your children; from the west I'll gather you.
I'll say to the north, "Give them back!" and to the south, "Don't detain them." Bring my sons from far away, and my daughters from the end of the earth,
everyone who is called by my name and whom I created for my glory, whom I have formed and made.
Bring out the blind people who have eyes, the deaf ones who have ears.
All the nations are gathered together; the peoples are assembled. Which of them announced this? Who predicted to us the past events? Let them bring their witnesses as a defense; let them hear and say, "It's true!"
You are my witnesses, says the LORD, my servant, whom I chose, so that you would know and believe me and understand that I am the one. Before me no god was formed; after me there has been no other.
I, I am the LORD, and there is no savior besides me.
I announced, I saved, I proclaimed, not some stranger among you. You are my witnesses, says the LORD, and I am God.
From the dawn of time, I am the one. No one can escape my power. I act, and who can undo it?
