The Lord’s Comfort for Zion

51 d“Listen to me, you who pursue righteousness,

you who seek the Lord:

look to the rock from which you were hewn,

and to the quarry from which you were dug.

Look to Abraham your father

and to Sarah who bore you;

for ehe was but one when I called him,

that I might bless him and multiply him.

For the Lord fcomforts Zion;

he comforts all her waste places

and makes her wilderness like gEden,

her desert like hthe garden of the Lord;

ijoy and gladness will be found in her,

thanksgiving and the voice of song.

j“Give attention to me, my people,

and give ear to me, my nation;

kfor a law1 will go out from me,

and I will set my justice for a light to the peoples.

lMy righteousness draws near,

my salvation has gone out,

and my arms will judge the peoples;

mthe coastlands hope for me,

and for my arm they wait.

nLift up your eyes to the heavens,

and look at the earth beneath;

ofor the heavens vanish like smoke,

the earth will wear out like a garment,

and they who dwell in it will die in like manner;2

pbut my salvation will be forever,

and my righteousness will never be dismayed.

q“Listen to me, you who know righteousness,

the people rin whose heart is my law;

sfear not the reproach of man,

nor be dismayed at their revilings.

tFor the moth will eat them up like a garment,

and the worm will eat them like wool,

pbut my righteousness will be forever,

and my salvation to all generations.”
