The Bible is just crammed with beautiful writing, and all in the public domain (in the King James version). Again, I’ve edited this extract a little bit and drawn from alternative translations, but I hope that doesn’t take away from the beauty.
Fear not: for I have redeemed you, I have called you by thy name; you are mine.
When you pass through deep waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not drown you. When you walk through fire, you shall not be burned; neither shall the flame consume you.
For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.
You are precious in my sight, you are honoured, and I love you.
Fear not: for I am with you.
Bring all who claim me as their God: for I have created them for my glory, I have formed them; yea, I have made them.
From eternity to eternity I am God; and there is none that can snatch you out of my hand: I will work, and who shall undo it?
I love Isaiah so much. What other Biblical extracts do you like?
Thanks for reading, and have a lovely day!
