The Book of the Prophet Isaiah

Chapter 35

In the day of restoration, the desert will blossom, the Lord will come, Israel will be gathered, and Zion will be built up.

 The wilderness and the asolitary place shall be bglad for cthem; and the ddesert shall rejoice, and eblossom as the rose.

 It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of aLebanon shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the bglory of the Lord, and the excellency of our God.

 ¶Strengthen ye the aweak hands, and confirm the bfeeble knees.

 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with avengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.

 Then the aeyes of the bblind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.

 Then shall the lame man leap as an ahart, and the tongue of the dumb bsing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.

 And the aparched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the bhabitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes.

 And an ahighway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of bholiness; the cunclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.

 No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the aredeemed shall walk there:

 10 And the ransomed of the Lord shall areturn, and come to bZion with csongs and everlasting djoy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and esorrow and sighing shall flee away.
