I have taken you from the ends of the earth
and called you from its most distant places.
I said to you, ‘You are my servant.
I’ve chosen you; I haven’t rejected you.’
Don’t be afraid, because I am with you.
Don’t be intimidated; I am your God.
I will strengthen you.
I will help you.
I will support you with my victorious right hand.
“Everyone who is angry with you
will be ashamed and disgraced.
Those who oppose you
will be reduced to nothing and disappear.
You will search for your enemies,
but you will not find them.
Those who are at war with you
will be reduced to nothing and no longer exist.
I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand
and say to you, ‘Don’t be afraid; I will help you.’
(God's Word Translation)
