A.(1) But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel,
B. Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.
C.(2) When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
D.(3) For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour:
C’. I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee. (4) Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life.
B’.(5) Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west; (6) I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth;(7) Even every one that is called by my name:
A’. for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.
