Do not Fear - Deuteronomy Chapter 4

25 When you will beget children, and children's children, and you will have been long in the land, and will deal corruptly, and make a graven image, even the form of any thing, and will do that which is evil in the sight of the L-RD your G-d, to provoke Him; 26 I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that you will soon utterly perish from off the land which you go over the Jordan to possess it; you will not prolong your days upon it, but will utterly be destroyed.

27 And the L-RD will scatter you among the peoples, and you will be left few in number among the nations, where the L-RD shall lead you away. 28 And there you will serve gods, the work of men's hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell.

29 But from there you will seek the L-RD your G-d; and you will find Him, if you search after Him with all your heart and with all your soul. 30 In your distress, when all these things have come upon you, in the end of days, you will return to the L-RD your G-d, and hearken unto His voice; 31 for the L-RD your G-d is a merciful God; He will not fail you, nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He swore unto them.
