"For I am the LORD your God, who upholds your right hand, Who says to you, 'Do not fear, I will help you.'
Thus says the LORD to Cyrus His anointed, Whom I have taken by the right hand, To subdue nations before him And to loose the loins of kings; To open doors before him so that gates will not be shut:
For He stands at the right hand of the needy, To save him from those who judge his soul.
"There is none like the God of Jeshurun, Who rides the heavens to your help, And through the skies in His majesty.
'Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.'
"I am the LORD, I have called You in righteousness, I will also hold You by the hand and watch over You, And I will appoint You as a covenant to the people, As a light to the nations,
"I will say to the north, 'Give them up!' And to the south, 'Do not hold them back ' Bring My sons from afar And My daughters from the ends of the earth,
There is none to guide her among all the sons she has borne, Nor is there one to take her by the hand among all the sons she has reared.
But the Lord stood with me and strengthened me, so that through me the proclamation might be fully accomplished, and that all the Gentiles might hear; and I was rescued out of the lion's mouth.
