Thou whom I have taken
from the ends of the earth,
and called thee from the chief men
thereof, and said unto thee,
Thou art my servant;
I have chosen thee,
and not cast thee away.
Fear thou not; for I am with thee:
be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee;
I will help thee;
I will uphold thee
with the right hand of my righteousness.
Behold, all they that were incensed
against thee shall be ashamed
they shall be as nothing; and they
that strive with thee shall perish.
Thou shalt seek them,
and shalt not find them,
even them that contended with thee:
they that war against thee
shall be as nothing,
and as a thing of nought.
For I the LORD
thy God will hold thy right hand,
saying unto thee,
Fear not; I will help thee.
