For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you,
Do not fear; I will help you.
Do not be afraid, you worm Jacob, little Israel, do not fear,
for I myself will help you," declares the LORD, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.
The poor and needy search for water, but there is none;
their tongues are parched with thirst.
But I the LORD will answer them; I, the God of Israel, will not forsake them.
I will make rivers flow on barren heights, and springs within the valleys.
I will turn the desert into pools of water, and the parched ground into springs."
Isaiah 41:13-15, 17-18
