A thanksgiving salvation hymn (Isa 12:1-12:3)

“You will say on that day.

I will give thanks to you!

O Yahweh!

Though you were angry with me,

Your anger turned away.

You comforted me.

Surely God is my salvation.

I will trust.

I will not be afraid.

Yahweh God is my strength.

He is my might.

He has become my salvation.

With joy

You will draw water

From the wells of salvation.”

Isaiah says that on the day when the great reunion takes place, there should be a hymn of thanksgiving. They all should give thanks because Yahweh had been angry with them, but now was comforting them. God was their deliverer so that they should trust him and not be afraid. Yahweh was their strength, their might, and their salvation. Thus they should draw water from the wells of salvation.
