Isaiah 41:5-10 World English Bible (WEB)

The islands have seen, and fear.
    The ends of the earth tremble.
    They approach, and come.
Everyone helps his neighbor.
    They say to their brothers, “Be strong!”
So the carpenter encourages the goldsmith.
    He who smoothes with the hammer encourages him who strikes the anvil,
    saying of the soldering, “It is good”;
    and he fastens it with nails, that it might not totter.
“But you, Israel, my servant,
    Jacob whom I have chosen,
    the offspring[a] of Abraham my friend,
    You whom I have taken hold of from the ends of the earth,
    and called from its corners,
    and said to you, ‘You are my servant, I have chosen you and not cast you away;’
10 Don’t you be afraid, for I am with you.
    Don’t be dismayed, for I am your God.
    I will strengthen you.
    Yes, I will help you.
    Yes, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness.

Isaiah 41:5-10 New International Version (NIV)

The islands have seen it and fear;
    the ends of the earth tremble.
They approach and come forward;
    they help each other
    and say to their companions, “Be strong!
The metalworker encourages the goldsmith,
    and the one who smooths with the hammer
    spurs on the one who strikes the anvil.
One says of the welding, “It is good.”
    The other nails down the idol so it will not topple.

“But you, Israel, my servant,
    Jacob, whom I have chosen,
    you descendants of Abraham my friend,
I took you from the ends of the earth,
    from its farthest corners I called you.
I said, ‘You are my servant’;
    I have chosen you and have not rejected you.
10 So do not fear, for I am with you;
    do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
    I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
