Isaiah 43:1-3

Context
The Lord Will Rescue His People

43:1 Now, this is what the Lord says,

the one who created you, O Jacob,

and formed you, O Israel:

“Don’t be afraid, for I will protect 1  you.

I call you by name, you are mine.

43:2 When you pass through the waters, I am with you;

when you pass 2  through the streams, they will not overwhelm you.

When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned;

the flames will not harm 3  you.

43:3 For I am the Lord your God,

the Holy One of Israel, 4  your deliverer.

I have handed over Egypt as a ransom price,

Ethiopia and Seba 5  in place of you.

1 tn Or “redeem.” See the note at 41:14. Cf. NCV “saved you”; CEV “rescued you”; NLT “ransomed you.”

2 tn The verb is understood by ellipsis (note the preceding line).

3 tn Heb “burn” (so NASB); NAB, NRSV, NLT “consume”; NIV “set you ablaze.”

4 sn See the note on the phrase “the Holy One of Israel” in 1:4.

5 sn Seba is not the same as Sheba in southern Arabia; cf. Gen 1:10; 1 Chr 1:9.
