For the Lord in his mercy will lead them; he will lead them besides cool waters.
For the Lord has comforted his people and will have compassion on them in their suffering.
Yet Jerusalem says, "The Lord has deserted us; the Lord has forgotten us."
Never! Can a mother forget her nursing child? Can she feel no love for the child she has borne?
But even if that were possible, I would not forget you!
See, I have written your name on the palms of my hands.
Those who trust in me will never be put to shame." Isaiah 49: 8, 10, 13, 15, 16, 23
