And do not return there without watering the earth
And making it bear and sprout,
And furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater;

It will not return to Me empty,
Without accomplishing what I desire,
And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.

And be led forth with peace;
The mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you,
And all the trees of the field will clap their hands.
