As he often does, Isaiah delivers severe rebuke followed by comfort and consolation. He tells the people that God has not cast Israel off. Rather, God will be present during the difficulties and will even bring a speedy return to and restoration of Israelץ 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 though 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 God’s declaration that “thou art mine.”
