Fear Not - Tishri 28, 5774


"But you, Israel, are My servant,
Jacob whom I have chosen,
The descendants of Abraham My friend.
You whom I have taken from the ends of the earth,
And called from its farthest regions,
and said to you,
'You are My servant,
I have chosen you and have not
cast you away:
Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My
righteous right hand.'
Behold, all those who were
incensed against you
Shall be ashamed and disgraced;
They shall be as nothing,
And those who strive with you
shall perish.
You shall seek them and
not find them -
Those who contended with you.
Those who war against you
Shall be as nothing.
As a nonexistent thing.
For I, the LORD your God, will hold
your right hand,
Saying to you, 'Fear not, I will help you.'"
Isaiah 41:8-13
