Isaiah 41:8-10

This reading is taken from the Prophet Isaiah, chapter 41, verses 8-10

But you, Israel, my servant,
    Jacob, whom I have chosen,
    the offspring of Abraham, my friend;

you whom I took from the ends of the earth,
    and called from its farthest corners,
saying to you, “You are my servant,
    I have chosen you and not cast you off”;

 do not fear, for I am with you,
    do not be afraid, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
    I will uphold you with my victorious right hand.

Here ends the lesson.

Thanks be to God.
