The wildernesse and the solitarie place shall be glad for them: and the desert shall reioyce and blossome as the rose.
It shall blossome abundantly, and reioyce euen with ioy and singing: the glory of Lebanon shal be giuen vnto it, the excellencie of Carmel and Sharon: they shall see the glory of the Lord, and the excellencie of our God.
Strengthen yee the weake hands, and confirme the feeble knees.
Say to them that are of a fearefull heart;
Be strong, feare not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, euen God with a recompence, he will come and saue you.
Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the eares of the deafe shalbe vnstopped.
Then shall the lame man leape as an Hart, and the tongue of the dumbe sing: for in the wildernesse shall waters breake out, and streames in the desert.
And the parched ground shall become a poole, and the thirstie land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shalbe grasse with reeds and rushes.
And an high way shalbe there, and away, and it shall be called the way of holinesse, the vncleane shall not passe ouer it, but it shall be for those: the wayfaringmen, though fooles, shall not erre therein.
No lyon shalbe there;
nor any rauenous beast shall goe vp thereon, it shall not be found there: but the redeemed shall walke there.
And the ransomed of the Lord shall returne and come to Zion with songs, and euerlasting ioy vpon their heads: they shall obtaine ioy and gladnesse, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
