Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 Israel, the Lord who created you says, "Do not be afraid - I will save you. I have called you by name - you are mine. 1 But now, this is what the LORD says-- he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: "Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
2 When you pass through deep waters, I will be with you; your troubles will not overwhelm you. When you pass through fire, you will not be burned; the hard trials that come will not hurt you. 2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.
3 For I am the Lord your God, the holy God of Israel, who saves you. I will give up Egypt to set you free; I will give up Ethiopia and Seba. 3 For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I give Egypt for your ransom, Cush and Seba in your stead.
4 I will give up whole nations to save your life, because you are precious to me and because I love you and give you honor. 4 Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you, I will give men in exchange for you, and people in exchange for your life.
5 Do not be afraid - I am with you! "From the distant east and the farthest west I will bring your people home. 5 Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west.
6 I will tell the north to let them go and the south not to hold them back. Let my people return from distant lands, from every part of the world. 6 I will say to the north, 'Give them up!' and to the south, 'Do not hold them back.' Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth--
