Bible: Isaiah 44:21-23; 44:7-8
44:21 Remember these things, O Jacob,
O Israel, for you are my servant.
I formed you to be my servant;
O Israel, I will not forget you! 1
44:22 I remove the guilt of your rebellious deeds as if they were a cloud,
the guilt of your sins as if they were a cloud. 2
Come back to me, for I protect 3 you.”
44:23 Shout for joy, O sky, for the
shout out, you subterranean regions 5 of the earth.
O mountains, give a joyful shout;
you too, O forest and all your trees! 6
he reveals his splendor through Israel. 8
