A (8) But thou, ISRAEL, art my servant,
B (8) JACOB whom I have chosen,
the seed of Abraham my friend.
C (9, 10) Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth,
and called thee from the chief men thereof,
and said unto thee, Thou art my servant;
I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away.
FEAR THOU NOT; for I am with thee: be not dismayed;
D (10) for I am THY GOD: I will strengthen thee;
yea, I will help thee;
yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
E (11) Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded:
they shall be AS NOTHING;
and they that strive with thee shall perish.
F (12) Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them,
even them that contended with thee:
E′ (12) they that war against thee shall be AS NOTHING,
and as a thing of nought.
D′ (13) For I Yahweh THY GOD will hold thy right hand,
saying unto thee,
C′ (13, 14) FEAR NOT; I will help thee. FEAR NOT,
B′ (14) thou worm JACOB,
A′ (14) and ye men OF ISRAEL; I will help thee,
saith Yahweh, and thy redeemer, the Holy One OF ISRAEL.
