(Memorization Scripture 1b-3)
1 But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob,
And He who formed you, O Israel:
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by your name;
You are Mine.
2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
Nor shall the flame scorch you.
3 For I am the Lord your God,
The Holy One of Israel, your Savior;
I gave Egypt for your ransom,
Ethiopia and Seba in your place.
4 Since you were precious in My sight,
You have been honored,
And I have loved you;
Therefore I will give men for you,
And people for your life.
5 Fear not, for I am with you;
I will bring your descendants from the east,
And gather you from the west;
6 I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’
And to the south, ‘Do not keep them back!’
Bring My sons from afar,
And My daughters from the ends of the earth—
7 Everyone who is called by My name,
Whom I have created for My glory;
I have formed him, yes, I have made him.”
1 雅各啊，創造你的耶和華，以色列啊，造成你的那位，現在如此說：「你不要害怕，因為我救贖了你；我曾提你的名召你，你是屬我的。 2 你從水中經過，我必與你同在；你趟過江河，水必不漫過你；你從火中行過，必不被燒，火焰也不著在你身上。 3 因為我是耶和華你的神，是以色列的聖者，你的救主。我已經使埃及做你的贖價，使古實和西巴代替你。 4 因我看你為寶為尊，又因我愛你，所以我使人代替你，使列邦人替換你的生命。 5 不要害怕，因我與你同在。我必領你的後裔從東方來，又從西方招聚你。 6 我要對北方說『交出來！』，對南方說『不要拘留！』，將我的眾子從遠方帶來，將我的眾女從地極領回， 7 就是凡稱為我名下的人，是我為自己的榮耀創造的，是我所做成、所造做的。」
