1The wilderness and the solitary place shall be glad for them; and the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.
2It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of L’vanon [Whiteness] shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel [Garden-land] and Sharon [a plain], they shall see the glory of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate), [and] the excellency of our God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered].
3Strengthen you2f the weak hands, and confirm the feeble knees.
4Say to them [that are] of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] will come [with] vengeance, [even] God-Elōhīm (The Living Word) [The Many Powered] [with] a recompense; he will come and save you.
5Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
6Then shall the lame [man] leap as an deer, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.
7And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, [shall be] grass with reeds and rushes.
8And an highway shall be there, and a way, 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 [in it].
9No lion shall be there, nor [any] ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk [there]:
10And the ransomed of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) shall return, and come to Tziyon [parched place] with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
