A. 1 But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob,
and he that formed thee, O Israel,
Fear not: for I have redeemed thee,
I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.
B. 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.
C. 3 For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour:
I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.
D. 4 Since thou wast precious in my sight,
thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee:
C’. 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;
A’. 7 Even every one that is called by my name:
for I have created him for my glory,
I have formed him;
yea, I have made him.
