The "Don't be afraid / Just believe" is a story item that was added in update v0.51 of The Forest


The note is written on a Bible page. It can be found in Cave 10, near the pond and the Cowman. Upon encounter, the player will add it to the notes section of the survival guide.


It can be assumed that this note was penned by Dr. Mathew Cross. It can be found next to a bucket of red paint, and it follows the same format as the "She's not dead / She is sleeping" and "A jealous God punishes a parents fault on their children" notes. It appears to be a note by Dr. Cross for himself, to remind himself not to give up in the face of the cannibals and that he can in fact revive Megan.

Translation of Bible page[]

...kindnesses, which thou swarest unto David in thy truth Remember, Lord, the reproach of thy servants how I do bear in my bosom the reproach of all the mighty people wherewith thine enemies have reproached, O Lord wherewith they have reproached the footsteps of thine anointed. Blessed be the Lord for evermore. Amen, and Amen.
God’s Eternity and Man’s Transitoriness
A Prayer of Moses the man of God. Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God. Thou turnest man to destruction and sayest, Return, ye children of men. For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night. Thou carriest them away as with a flood they are as a sleep in the morning they are like grass which groweth up. In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up in the evening it is cut down, and withereth. For we are consumed by thine anger, and by thy wrath are we troubled. Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our secret sins in the light of thy countenance. For all our days are passed away in thy wrath we spend our years as a tale that is told. The days of our years are threescore years and ten and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labor and sorrow for it is soon cut off, and we fly away. Who knoweth the power of thine anger Even according to thy fear, so is thy wrath. So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom. Return, O Lord, how long? And let it repent thee concerning thy servants. O satisfy us early with thy mercy that we may rejoice and be glad all our days. Make us glad according to the days wherein thou hast afflicted us, and the years wherein we have seen evil. Let thy work appear unto thy servants, and thy glory unto their children. And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us and establish thou the work of our hands upon us yea, the work of our hands establish thou it. Abiding in the Shadow of the Almighty He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord He is my refuge and my fortress my God in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night nor for the arrow that flieth by day nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the Most High, thy habitation; there shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honor him. With long life will I satisfy him, and show him my salvation. Praise for the Lord’s Goodness A Psalm or Song for the sabbath day...
