Isaiah 41:7-9 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

One worker cuts wood to make a statue. He encourages the man who works with gold. Another worker uses a hammer and makes the metal smooth. Then he encourages the man at the anvil.[a] This last worker says, ‘This work is good; the metal will not come off.’ Then he nails the statue to a base so that it will not fall over. And it never moves!”

Only the Lord Can Save Us

The Lord says, “You, Israel, are my servant.
    Jacob, I chose you.
    You are from the family of my friend, Abraham.
You were in a faraway country,
    but I reached out to you.
I called you from that faraway place.
    I said, ‘You are my servant.’
I chose you,
    and I have not rejected you.
