Isa 51:12 "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,

Isa 51:18 There is none to guide her among all the sons she has borne, Nor is there one to take her by the hand among all the sons she has reared.
Isa 51:19 These two things have befallen you; Who will mourn for you? The devastation and destruction, famine and sword; How shall I comfort you?

Isa 51:22 Thus says your Lord, the Lord, even your God Who contends for His people," Behold, I have taken out of your hand the cup of reeling, The chalice of My anger; You will never drink it again.
Isa 51:23 "I will put it into the hand of your tormentors, Who have said to you, 'Lie down that we may walk over you. 'You have even made your back like the ground And like the street for those who walk over it."
