When you walk through fire, you will not be burned, and the flames will not harm 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.

4 Since you are precious to me, you are honored and I love you. I will exchange others for you. Nations will be the price I pay for your life. 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.

Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth--
