Isaiah 44:5 in Hebrew

How do you say "The Lord's" or "Belonging to the Lord" in Hebrew?  Here's what I've come up with:

Isaiah 44:5 One will say, 'I belong to the LORD ';
       another will call himself by the name of Jacob;
       still another will write on his hand, 'The LORD's,'
       and will take the name Israel.

 Hebrew Modern
זה יאמר ליהוה אני וזה יקרא בשם יעקב וזה יכתב ידו ליהוה ובשם ישראל יכנה׃

I believe the words I've highlighted in red mean "the Lord's ".  Is this correct?

Thank you in advance, so much,,,
B
