Insure vs ensure vs assure

All words are confusing because they sound similar, however, they have almost nothing in common.

Insure means 'to arrange for the payment of a sum of money in the event of the loss', e.g. He insured his life for 20,000$.

Ensure is a rather formal word, which means 'to make sure', e.g. You should ensure that your television set is switched off at night.

Assure means 'to cause to feel sure or certain; convince', e.g. I assured him that the house was empty or I assured him of my support.
