A.(21) Remember these, O Jacob and Israel;
for thou art my servant:
I have formed thee;
thou art my servant:
O Israel, thou shalt not be forgotten of me.
B.(22) I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions,
and, as a cloud, thy sins:
return unto me;
for I have redeemed thee.
C.(23) Sing, O ye heavens; for the LORD hath done it:
shout, ye lower parts of the earth:
break forth into singing, ye mountains, O forest, and every tree therein:
B’. for the LORD hath redeemed Jacob,
and glorified himself in Israel.
A’.(24) Thus saith the LORD, thy redeemer,
and he that formed thee from the womb,
I am the LORD that maketh all things;
that stretcheth forth the heavens alone;
that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;
