(A)Listen to Me, O house of Jacob,
And all (B)the remnant of the house of Israel,
You who have been (C)borne by Me from [a]birth
And have been carried from the womb;
Even to your old age (D)I [b]will be the same,
And even to your [c](E)graying years I will bear you!
I have [d]done it, and I will carry you;
And I will bear you and I will deliver you.
