Bible: Isaiah 44:1-5

The Lord Will Renew Israel

44:1Now, listen, Jacob my servant,

Israel whom I have chosen!

44:2 This is what the Lord, the one who made you, says –

the one who formed you in the womb and helps you:

“Don’t be afraid, my servant Jacob,

Jeshurun, 1  whom I have chosen!

44:3 For I will pour water on the parched ground 2 

and cause streams to flow 3  on the dry land.

I will pour my spirit on your offspring

and my blessing on your children.

44:4 They will sprout up like a tree in the grass, 4 

like poplars beside channels of water.

44:5 One will say, ‘I belong to the Lord,’

and another will use 5  the name ‘Jacob.’

One will write on his hand, ‘The Lord’s,’

and use the name ‘Israel.’ 6
