Isaiah 41:7-9 New Life Version (NLV)
7 The able workman gives strength of heart to the one who works with gold. He who makes iron smooth gives strength of heart to the one who beats the iron, saying of his work, “It is good.” And he puts it in its place with nails so that it cannot be moved.
8 “But you, Israel, My servant, Jacob, whom I have chosen, son of My friend Abraham, 9 I have taken you from the ends of the earth. I have called you from its farthest parts, and said to you, ‘You are My servant. I have chosen you and have not turned away from you.’
