Now this is what the Lord says- the One who created you, Jacob, and the One who formed you, Israel- "Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; you are Mine.
I will be with you when you pass through the waters, and [when you pass] through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you. You will not be scorched when you walk through the fire, and the flame will not burn you.
For I the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, and your Savior, give Egypt as a ransom for you, Cush and Seba in your place.
Because you are precious in My sight and honored, and I love you, I will give human beings in your place, and peoples in place of your life.
Do not fear, for I am with you; I will bring your descendants from the east, and gather you from the west.
I will say to the north: Give [them] up! and to the south: Do not hold [them] back! Bring My sons from far away, and My daughters from the ends of the earth-
everyone called by My name and created for My glory. I have formed him; indeed, I have made him."
