I took you from the ends of the earth,1 from its farthest corners I called2 you. I said, 'You are my servant';3 I have chosen4 you and have not rejected you.
So do not fear,5 for I am with you;6 do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen7 you and help8 you; I will uphold you9 with my righteous right hand.1011
"All who rage11 against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced;12 those who oppose13 you will be as nothing and perish.1412
Though you search for your enemies, you will not find them.15 Those who wage war against you will be as nothing16 at all.
For I am the LORD, your God, who takes hold of your right hand17 and says to you, Do not fear; I will help18 you.
