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.'"
