Yahweh's Judgment And Help

8 The highways are deserted, The passer-by on the path, hath ceased, - He hath broken covenant, He hath despised cities, He hath made no account of men. 9 The land mourneth, languisheth, Lebanon, displayeth shame, is withered, - Sharon, hath become, as the waste plain, And Bashan and Carmel are shaking off their leaves. 10 Now, will I arise, Saith Yahweh, Now, will I lift myself up, Now, will I be exalted!
