Bible: Isaiah 41:8-9

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.
