Isaiah 41:8-13

Israel as God’s servant

8 But you, Israel my servant, Jacob, whom I have chosen, offspring of Abraham, whom I love,
9 you whom I took from the ends of the earth and called from its farthest corners, saying to you, "You are my servant; I chose you and didn't reject you":
10 Don't fear, because I am with you; don't be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will surely help you; I will hold you with my righteous strong hand.
11 All who rage against you will be shamed and disgraced. Those who contend with you will be as nothing and will perish.
12 You will look for your opponents, and won't find them. Those who fight you will be of no account and will die.
13 I am the LORD your God, who grasps your strong hand, who says to you, Don't fear; I will help you.
