Isaiah 41:8-10

8-10"But you, Israel, are my servant.

You're Jacob, my first choice,

descendants of my good friend Abraham.

I pulled you in from all over the world,

called you in from every dark corner of the earth,

Telling you, 'You're my servant, serving on my side.

I've picked you. I haven't dropped you.'

Don't panic. I'm with you.

There's no need to fear for I'm your God.

I'll give you strength. I'll help you.

I'll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you.

11-13"Count on it: Everyone who had it in for you

will end up out in the cold—

real losers.

Those who worked against you

will end up empty-handed—

nothing to show for their lives.

When you go out looking for your old adversaries

you won't find them—

Not a trace of your old enemies,

not even a memory.

That's right. Because I, your God,

have a firm grip on you and I'm not letting go.

I'm telling you, 'Don't panic.

I'm right here to help you.'
