1  But now thus said Hashem— Who created you, O Yaakov, Who formed you, O Yisrael: Fear not, for I will redeem you; I have singled you out by name, You are Mine.

א  וְעַתָּה כֹּה־אָמַר יְהֹוָה בֹּרַאֲךָ יַעֲקֹב וְיֹצֶרְךָ יִשְׂרָאֵל אַל־תִּירָא כִּי גְאַלְתִּיךָ קָרָאתִי בְשִׁמְךָ לִי־אָתָּה׃

43:1   But now

As he often does, Yeshayahu delivers severe rebuke (42:18-25) followed by comfort and consolation. He tells the people that Hashem has not cast Israel off. Rather, He will be present during the difficulties and will even bring a speedy return and restoration to Israel (verses 3-7). The opening words, “but now,” mark the sharp contrast between the closing of chapter 42 and the opening of chapter 43. The prophet reassures that although Israel has undergone severe punishment and is still suffering, a dramatic change is approaching. The nation will return to its land in a remarkable expression of Hashem’s declaration, “You are Mine”.

  • In verse 8 we read I am Hashem, that is My name; and My glory will I not give to another …
    I remember a few years ago when the Welsh rubgy team had a new coach. The newspaper headlines read "Saviour" when discribing this new coach, I remember then and I do today thinking that Hashem will not share his Name with anyone, and that the newspaper had sealed the fate of the welsh team. Lose they did, every game! Hashem will not share or give His name to anyone, H is God, there is none like him in all the earth.
