Isaiah 43:1-6 NCV

1 Now this is what the Lord says. He created you, people of Jacob; he formed you, people of Israel. He says, "Don't be afraid, because I have saved you. I have called you by name, and you are mine.
2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you. When you cross rivers, you will not drown. When you walk through fire, you will not be burned, nor will the flames hurt you.
3 This is because I, the Lord, am your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. I gave Egypt to pay for you, and I gave Cush and Seba to make you mine.
4 Because you are precious to me, because I give you honor and love you, I will give other people in your place; I will give other nations to save your life.
5 Don't be afraid, because I am with you. I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west.
6 I will tell the north: Give my people to me. people in prison. Bring my sons from far away and my daughters from faraway places.
