The LORD says to You, Do Not Fear

 I Will Help You

41: 8-20

    In this scene we see a far eschatological prophecy, or the final deliverance of Isra'el. Having described the alarm and powerlessness of the idol-worshippers, the prophet, speaking in the name of ADONAI, addresses Isra'el, God’s servant, assuring her of Divine care and protection and announcing the crushing defeat of her enemies. The scene then shifts from the frightened people of Babylon, terrified by the works of the LORD, to the people of God. They are comforted by the knowledge that they are chosen (41:8-10), the Gentile nations will ultimately be defeated (41:11-13), Isra'el will be victorious (41:14-16). And a faithful remnant, the Holy Ones (Deuteronomy 33:2-3; Job 5:1; Psalms 16:3 and 34:9; Zechariah 14:5), will remain (41:17-20).
