If you want a biblical construction of the phrase, you could use:

אַל-תִּירָא, כִּי-אִתְּךָ אָנֹכִי (Genesis 26:24)

Transliterated: Al-teera, key-eetkha anokhi.

This translates to: Fear not, for with you I am.

This is a fairly formal construction and differs from today's colloquial Hebrew.

Bear in mind that the "you" (אִתְּךָ) referenced in this biblical version is masculine.

If you wanted to modify it to refer to a female "you," you could replace אִתְּךָ with אִתָּךְ.

The letters are no different, but the vowels are. Nowadays, the vowels are often omitted from written Hebrew, so the male/female difference issue would be moot on a page. (See: Niqqud and Niqqud for information about vowels in Hebrew.)

With vowels omitted, the Hebrew would look like this:

אל-תירא, כי-אתך אנכי
