But now thus says the LORD, 1he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: 2"Fear not, for I have redeemed you; 3I have called you by name, you are mine.
24When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; 5when you walk through fire 6you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.
For 7I am the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. 8I give Egypt as your ransom, Cush and 9Seba in exchange for you.
Because you are precious in my eyes, and honored, and I love you, I give men in return for you, peoples in exchange for your life.
510Fear not, for I am with you; 11I will bring your offspring from the east, and from the west I will gather you.
I will say to the north, Give up, and to the south, Do not withhold; bring 12my sons from afar and 13my daughters from the end of the earth,
