And a nation which knows you not will s run to you,
Because of the Lord your God, even the Holy One of Israel;
For He has t glorified you.”
6 u Seek the Lord while He may be found;

7 w Let the wicked forsake his way
And the unrighteous man his x thoughts;
And let him y return to the Lord,

And to our God,
For He will aa abundantly pardon.

Nor are ac your ways My ways,” declares the Lord.

So are My ways higher than your ways
And My thoughts than your thoughts.
10 “For as the ae rain and the snow come down from heaven,
And do not return there without watering the earth
And making it bear and sprout,
And furnishing af seed to the sower and bread to the eater;
11 So will My ag word be which goes forth from My mouth;
It will ah not return to Me empty,
Without ai accomplishing what I desire,
And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.
12 “For you will go out with aj joy
And be led forth with ak peace;
The al mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you,
And all the am trees of the field will clap their hands.
13 “Instead of the an thorn bush the ao cypress will come up,
And instead of the ap nettle the myrtle will come up,
▼ I.e. the transformation of the desertit will be a ▼
▼ Lit name, as memorial to the Lord,
For an everlasting at sign which au will not be cut off.”
