The Helper of Israel says...
The Helper of Israel says....
“You are My servant;
I have chosen you and have not rejected you.
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....
For I AM the Lord, your God,
who takes hold of your right hand and says to you,
DO NOT fear; I WILL help you....
I WILL make Rivers flow on barren heights,
and Springs within the valleys.
I WILL turn the desert into Pools of Water,
and the parched ground into Springs.
I WILL put in the desert the Cedar and the Acacia,
the Myrtle and the Olive.
I WILL set Pines in the wasteland,
the Fir and the Cypress together,
so that people may see and know,
may consider and understand,
that THE LORD HAS DONE THIS,
that the Holy One of Israel has created it.
(Isaiah 41:9b-10; 13; 18-20)
