Isaiah 35

35
XXXV
1The desert, and the dry place, shall be glad for them;
And the wilderness shall rejoice, and blossom like the rose:
2It shall blossom abundantly,
And rejoice even with joy and singing;
The glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it,
The beauty of Carmel and of Sharon:
They shall see the glory of Jehovah,
The majesty of our God.
3Strengthen ye the feeble hands,
And confirm the tottering knees.
4Say to the agitated in heart: Be strong,
Fear not: behold your God!
Vengeance will come, the retribution of God;
He himself will come, and will save you.
5Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened,
And the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
6Then shall the lame bound like the hart,
And the tongue of the dumb shall sing:
For in the wilderness shall burst forth waters,
And streams in the desert.
7And the apparent water of the desert shall become a pool,
And the thirsty land springs of water;
In the haunt of jackals, where is their couching place,
Shall be a place for reed and bulrushes.
8And an highway shall be there, even a road;
And it shall be called, The way of holiness:
The unclean shall not pass over it;
But it shall be for those:
The wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.
9There shall not be a lion there,
And the savage beast shall not go upon it:
It shall not be found there;
But the redeemed shall walk in it.
10And the ransomed of Jehovah shall return,
And come to Zion with singing;
And perpetual gladness shall be upon their heads:
Joy and gladness shall they obtain,
And sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

Isaiah 35

35
1The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad,
the desert shall rejoice and blossom;
like the crocus 2it shall blossom abundantly,
and rejoice with joy and singing.
The glory of Lebanon shall be given to it,
the majesty of Carmel and Sharon.
They shall see the glory of the Lord,
the majesty of our God.
3 # Heb 12.12. Strengthen the weak hands,
and make firm the feeble knees.
4Say to those who are of a fearful heart,
“Be strong, fear not!
Behold, your God
will come with vengeance,
with the recompense of God.
He will come and save you.”
5 # Mt 11.5; Lk 7.22. Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened,
and the ears of the deaf unstopped;
6then shall the lame man leap like a hart,
and the tongue of the dumb sing for joy.
For waters shall break forth in the wilderness,
and streams in the desert;
7the burning sand shall become a pool,
and the thirsty ground springs of water;
the haunt of jackals shall become a swamp,#35.7 Cn: Heb in the haunt of jackals is her resting place
the grass shall become reeds and rushes.
8And a highway shall be there,
and it shall be called the Holy Way;
the unclean shall not pass over it,#35.8 Heb it and he is for them a wayfarer
and fools shall not err therein.
9No lion shall be there,
nor shall any ravenous beast come up on it;
they shall not be found there,
but the redeemed shall walk there.
10And the ransomed of the Lord shall return,
and come to Zion with singing;
everlasting joy shall be upon their heads;
they shall obtain joy and gladness,
and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
