This what the Lord says, the one who made you,
    formed you from the womb,
        and who will help[a] you:
“Don’t be afraid, Jacob my servant,
    and Jeshurun,[b] whom I have chosen.
For I’ll pour water upon thirsty ground
    and streams on parched land.
So[c] will I pour my Spirit upon your offspring,
    and my blessing upon your descendants.
They’ll[d] spring up as among[e] the green grass,
    like willows by flowing streams.
