Bible: Isaiah 44:21-23

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 Lord intervenes; 4 

shout out, you subterranean regions 5  of the earth.

O mountains, give a joyful shout;

you too, O forest and all your trees! 6 

For the Lord protects 7  Jacob;

he reveals his splendor through Israel. 8
