Words of hope from the Prophet Isaiah
NOW shall all who defy you be disappointed and put to shame; all who set themselves against you shall be as nothing; they shall vanish.
You will look for your assailants but not find them; all who take up arms against you shall be as nothing, nothing at all.
For I, the LORD your God, take you by the right hand; I say to you, ‘Do not fear; it is I who help you.’
Fear not, Jacob, you worm and Israel poor louse. It is I who help you says the LORD, your ransomer, the Holy One of Israel.
See, I will make you a sharp threshing-sledge, new and studded with teeth; you shall thresh the mountains and crush them and reduce the hills to chaff.
You shall winnow them, the wind shall carry them away and a great gale shall scatter them. Then shall you rejoice in the LORD and glory in the Holy One of Israel.
New English Bible (NEB)
The Lord has ransomed us from all those who defy Him. A great gale, a mighty revival by a move of His Spirit, shall sweep over the Land. It is coming! It will be glorious and we shall all rejoice together.
