43 Descendants of Jacob, I, the Lord, created you and formed your nation. Israel, don’t be afraid. I have rescued you. I have called you by name; now you belong to me. 2 When you cross deep rivers, I will be with you, and you won’t drown. When you walk through fire, you won’t be burned or scorched by the flames.
3 I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, the God who saves you. I gave up Egypt, Ethiopia,[a] and the region of Seba[b] in exchange for you. 4 To me, you are very dear, and I love you. That’s why I gave up nations and people to rescue you.
5 Don’t be afraid! I am with you. From both east and west I will bring you together. 6 I will say to the north and to the south, “Free my sons and daughters! Let them return from distant lands. 7 They are my people— I created each of them to bring honor to me.”
