The Restorer of Israel

1 But now thus says Yahweh, he who created you, Jacob, and he who formed you, Israel: "You must not fear, for I have redeemed you. I have called [you] by your name; {you are mine}. 2 When you pass through the waters, I [will be] with you, and through the rivers, they shall not flow over you. When you walk through fire, you shall not be burned, and [the] flame shall not scorcha you. 3 For I [am] Yahweh, your God, the holy one of Israel, your savior. I give you Egypt [as] ransom, Cush and Seba in place of you. 4 Because you are precious in my eyes, you are honored, and I myself love you, and I give people in place of you, and nations in place of your life. 5 You must not fear, for I [am] with you. I will bring your {offspring}b from [the] east, and I will gather you from [the] west. 6 I will say to the north, 'Give!' and to [the] south, 'You must not withhold!' Bring my sons from far away, and my daughters from the end of the earth-- 7 everyone who is called by my name, and whom I created for my glory, whom I formed, indeed whom I made." 8 Bring out [the] people blind yetc with eyes, and deaf, thoughd they have ears. 9 Let all the nations gather together, and let [the] peoples assemble. Who among them has declared this, and {declared}e [the] former things to us? Let them bringf their witnesses, thatg they may be in the right, and let them hear and say, "[It is] true!" 10 "You [are] my witnesses," {declares}h Yahweh, "and my servant whom I have chosen so that you may know and believe {in}i me and understand that I [am] he. No god was formed before {me}j, and none shall be after me. 11 I myself [am] Yahweh, and there is no savior besides me! 12 I myself declared and saved, and I {proclaimed}.k And there was no {strange god}l among you. And you [are] my witnesses," {declares}m Yahweh, "and I [am] God. 13 Indeed, from [this] day I [am] the one, and no one can deliver from my hand. I perform,n and who can {cancel it}?"o
