Who is Jeshurun?

This is what the Lord says—
    he who made you, who formed you in the womb,
    and who will help you:
Do not be afraid, Jacob, my servant,
    Jeshurun, whom I have chosen.  Isaiah 44:2
            Jeshurun means “upright one” and it appears four times in the Bible, three times in Deuteronomy and once in Isaiah.  It was used to focus on Israel and its people when they were obedient, in a perfect state of relationship with God.
