Warnings to Isaiah
11: The Lord spoke to me with his great power and warned me not to be like these people. He said,
12: “Don’t think there is a plan against you just because the people say there is. Don’t be afraid of what they fear. Don’t let them frighten you!”
13: The Lord All-Powerful is the one you should fear.
He is the one you should respect. He is the one
who should frighten you. •
