2 cIt shall blossom abundantly and rejoice,
Even with joy and singing.
The glory of Lebanon shall be given to it,
The excellence of Carmel and Sharon.
They shall see the dglory of the Lord,
The excellency of our God.
And make firm the 4feeble knees.
“Be strong, do not fear!
Behold, your God will come with fvengeance,
With the recompense of God;
He will come and gsave you.”
5 Then the heyes of the blind shall be opened,
And ithe ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
6 Then the jlame shall leap like a deer,
And the ktongue of the dumb sing.
For lwaters shall burst forth in the wilderness,
And streams in the desert.
And the thirsty land springs of water;
In mthe habitation of jackals, where each lay,
There shall be grass with reeds and rushes.
8 A nhighway shall be there, and a road,
And it shall be called the Highway of Holiness.
oThe unclean shall not pass over it,
But it shall be for others.
Whoever walks the road, although a fool,
Shall not go astray.
9 pNo lion shall be there,
Nor shall any ravenous beast go up on it;
It shall not be found there.
But the redeemed shall walk there,
10 And the qransomed of the Lord shall return,
And come to Zion with singing,
With everlasting joy on their heads.
They shall obtain joy and gladness,
And rsorrow and sighing shall flee away.
