44 People of Israel, I have chosen you as my servant. 2 I am your Creator. You were in my care even before you were born. Israel, don’t be terrified! You are my chosen servant, my very favorite.[a]
3 I will bless the thirsty land by sending streams of water; I will bless your descendants by giving them my Spirit. 4 They will spring up like grass[b] or like willow trees near flowing streams. 5 They will worship me and become my people. They will write my name on the back of their hands.[c]
6 I am the Lord All-Powerful, the first and the last, the one and only God. Israel, I have rescued you! I am your King. 7 Can anyone compare with me? If so, let them speak up and tell me now. Let them say what has happened since I made my nation long ago, and let them tell what is going to happen.[d] 8 Don’t tremble with fear! Didn’t I tell you long ago? Didn’t you hear me? I alone am God— no one else is a mighty rock.[e]
21 People of Israel, you are my servant, so remember all of this. Israel, I created you, and you are my servant. I won’t forget you.[a] 22 Turn back to me! I have rescued you and swept away your sins as though they were clouds.
44.21I won’t forget you: One possible meaning for the difficult Hebrew text.
