12 The Lord says, “·I [L I, even I] am the one who ·comforts you [40:1].
    So why should you be afraid of people, who die?
    ·Why should you fear people [L …or the son of man; C human beings] who ·die [L is given up] like the grass [40:6]?
13 Have you forgotten the Lord who made you,
    who stretched out the ·skies [heavens]
    and ·made [L laid the foundations of] the earth [48:13]?
Why are you always afraid
    of ·those angry people who trouble you [the anger/wrath of the oppressor]
    and who ·want [seek; plan] to destroy?
But where ·are those angry people [is the anger/wrath of the oppressor] now?
14     ·People in prison [L Those who are burdened/stooped over] will soon be set free;
they will not die in prison,
    and they will ·have enough food [not lack bread].
