Until the Spirit is poured out upon us from on high,
And the wilderness becomes a fertile field,
And the fertile field is valued as a forest.
Then justice will dwell in the wilderness,
And righteousness will live in the fertile field.
And the effect of righteousness will be peace,
And the result of righteousness will be quietness and confident trust forever.
Then my people will live in a peaceful surrounding,
And in secure dwellings and in undisturbed resting places.
But it will hail, when the forest comes down,
And the [capital] city will fall in utter humiliation.
Blessed (happy, fortunate) are you who cast your seed upon all waters [when the river overflows its banks and irrigates the land],
You who allow the ox and the donkey to roam freely.
