Isaiah 8:12-13; Isaiah 51:12-13; Jeremiah 1:8; 1 Peter 3:14

12 Do not call oconspiracy all that this people calls conspiracy, and pdo not fear what they fear, nor be in dread. 13 But the Lord of hosts, qhim you shall honor as holy. Let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.


12  I, I am he cwho comforts you;

who are you that you are afraid of dman who dies,

of the son of man who is made elike grass,

13  and have forgotten the Lord, your Maker,

fwho stretched out the heavens

and glaid the foundations of the earth,

and you fear continually all the day

because of the wrath of hthe oppressor,

when he sets himself to destroy?

And where is the wrath of hthe oppressor?


oDo not be afraid of them,

pfor I am with you to deliver you,

declares the Lord.


14 dBut even if you should suffer for righteousness' sake, you will be blessed. eHave no fear of them, fnor be troubled,
