come to the waters;
and he who has no money,

call upon him while he is near;
and the unrighteous man his thoughts;
let him return to the Lord, that he may have mercy on him,
and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

and my thoughts than your thoughts.
and return not thither but water the earth,
making it bring forth and sprout,

but it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
and prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and the hills before you
shall break forth into singing,
and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle;
and it shall be to the Lord for a memorial,
for an everlasting sign which shall not be cut off.”
