12"I, even I, am He who comforts you
Who are you that you are afraid of man who dies
And of the son of man who is made like grass,
13That you have forgotten the LORD your Maker,
Who stretched out the heavens
laid the foundations of the earth,
you fear continually all day long because of the fury of the oppressor,
he makes ready to destroy?
where is the fury of the oppressor?
14"The exile will soon be set free, and will not die in the dungeon, nor will his bread be lacking.
15"For I am the LORD your God, who stirs up the sea and its waves roar (the LORD of hosts is His name).
16"I have put My words in your mouth and have covered you with the shadow of My hand, to establish the heavens, to found the earth, and to say to Zion, 'You are My people.'"

28Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth does not become weary or tired, His understanding is inscrutable. 29He gives strength to the weary, and to him who lacks might He increases power. 30Though youths grow weary and tired, and vigorous young men stumble badly, 31Yet those who wait for the LORD will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary.
