Zion’s Happy Future1The a wilderness and the desert will be glad,
And the ▼
▼ Or desert, c Arabah will rejoice and blossom;
Like the crocus
2It will d blossom profusely
And e rejoice with rejoicing and shout of joy.
The f glory of Lebanon will be given to it,
The majesty of g Carmel and Sharon.
They will see the h glory of the Lord,
The majesty of our God.
3 i Encourage the ▼
▼ Lit slack handsexhausted, and strengthen the ▼
▼ Lit tottering kneesfeeble.
4Say to those with l anxious heart,
“Take courage, fear not.
Behold, your God will come with m vengeance;
The n recompense of God will come,
But He will o save you.”
5Then the p eyes of the blind will be opened
And the ears of the deaf will be unstopped.
6Then the q lame will leap like a deer,
And the r tongue of the mute will shout for joy.
For waters will break forth in the s wilderness
And streams in the ▼
▼ Or desertArabah.
▼ Or miragescorched land will become a pool
And the thirsty ground v springs of water;
In the w haunt of jackals, its resting place,
Grass becomes reeds and rushes.
8 x A highway will be there y a roadway,
And it will be called the Highway of z Holiness.
The unclean will not travel on it,
But it will be for him who walks that way,
And aa fools will not wander on it.
9No ab lion will be there,
Nor will any vicious beast go up on it;
▼ Lit ItThese will not be found there.
But ad the redeemed will walk there,
10And ae the ransomed of the Lord will return
And come with joyful shouting to Zion,
With everlasting joy upon their heads.
They will ▼
▼ Lit overtakefind gladness and joy,
And ag sorrow and sighing will flee away.
