Bible: Isaiah 41:8-10

The Lord Encourages His People

41:8You, my servant Israel,

Jacob whom I have chosen,

offspring of Abraham my friend, 1 

41:9 you whom I am bringing back 2  from the earth’s extremities,

and have summoned from the remote regions

I told you, “You are my servant.”

I have chosen you and not rejected you.

41:10 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you!

Don’t be frightened, for I am your God! 3 

I strengthen you –

yes, I help you –

yes, I uphold you with my saving right hand! 4
