Bible: Isaiah 46:1-5

The Lord Carries His People

46:1 Bel 1  kneels down,

Nebo 2  bends low.

Their images weigh down animals and beasts. 3 

Your heavy images are burdensome to tired animals. 4 

46:2 Together they bend low and kneel down;

they are unable to rescue the images; 5 

they themselves 6  head off into captivity. 7 

46:3Listen to me, O family of Jacob, 8 

all you who are left from the family of Israel, 9 

you who have been carried from birth, 10 

you who have been supported from the time you left the womb. 11 

46:4 Even when you are old, I will take care of you, 12 

even when you have gray hair, I will carry you.

I made you and I will support you;

I will carry you and rescue you. 13 

46:5 To whom can you compare and liken me?

Tell me whom you think I resemble, so we can be compared!
