Wilderness and parched land, shall be glad for them, - And the waste plain, shall exult, and blossom as the lily:
For Yahweh hath comforted Zion, He hath comforted all her waste places, And hath made her wilderness like Eden, And her waste plain like the garden of Yahweh, - Joy and gladness, shall be found in her, Thanksgiving, and the voice of melody.
For with gladness shall ye come forth, And in peace, shall ye be led, - the mountains and the hills shall break out, before you, into shouts of triumph, And all the wild trees shall clap their hands:
Zion, hath heard and rejoiced, And the daughters of Judah, have exulted, Because of thy righteous decisions, O Yahweh:
In that day, Shall the Bud of Yahweh, become beautiful and glorious, - And the Fruit of the Land splendid and majestic, To the escaped of Israel.
In coming times, shall Jacob strike root, Israel, shall blossom and bud, - Then shall they fill the face of the world with fruit.
For the fortified city, is solitary, The dwelling forsaken and left as a wilderness, - There, shall the calf feed, And, there, lie down And shall consume the branches thereof:
Is it not yet a very little while, And Lebanon shall be turned, into garden land, - And garden land, for a forest, be reckoned?
Until there be poured out upon us the spirit, from on high, - Then shall the wilderness become, garden-land, And the garden-land, for a forest, be reckoned;
A voice of one crying! - In the desert, prepare ye the way of Yahweh, - Make smooth in the waste plain a highway for our God:
I will open, On bare hills rivers, and In the midst of plains, fountains, - I will make The desert, a lake of water, and Parched land, springs of water;
Break forth, shout in triumph together, ye waste places of Jerusalem, - For Yahweh Hath comforted his people, Hath redeemed Jerusalem:
I will, greatly rejoice, in Yahweh, My soul shall exult in my God, For he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, With a robe of righteousness, hath he enwrapt me, - As a bridegroom, adorneth himself with, a chaplet, And as a bride, bedecketh herself with, her jewels.
Rejoice ye with Jerusalem, and exult over her All ye who love her, - Joy with her right joyfully, All ye who used to mourn over her:
And they shall say, This land that was made desolate hath become like the garden of Eden,- And the cities that were waste and deserted and thrown down, now fenced, are inhabited;
I will become as the dew unto Israel, he shall break forth as the lily, - and he shall strike his roots as Lebanon:
After these things, I heard as it were, a loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, saying - Hallelujah! The salvation and the glory and the power of our God!
