“Remember these things, O Jacob and Israel,
for you are My servant; I formed you to be My servant;
therefore, you, O Israel, do not forget Me.
For behold, I blotted out your lawlessness like a cloud and your sins like darkness.
Return to Me, and I will redeem you.
Be glad, O heavens, for the Lord had mercy on Israel.
Sound the trumpet, you foundations of the earth;
shout with gladness, you mountains and hills and every tree on them.
For God redeemed Jacob, and Israel will be glorified.”
(Isaiah 44:21-23 Septuagint)
