"But now, this is what the Lord says - He who created you, Jacob, He who formed you, Israel: Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name; you are Mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; when you walk through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze."
"Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now, it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland."
