1 The wilderness and the a place shall be b for c; and the d shall rejoice, and e as the rose.
2 It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice even with joy and singing: the glory of a shall be given unto it, the excellency of Carmel and Sharon, they shall see the b of the Lord, and the excellency of our God.
3 ¶Strengthen ye the a hands, and confirm the b knees.
4 Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with a, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you.
5 Then the a of the b shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
6 Then shall the lame man leap as an a, and the tongue of the dumb b: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.
7 And the a ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the b, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes.
8 And an a shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of b; the c shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.
9 No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the a shall walk there:
10 And the ransomed of the Lord shall a, and come to b with c and everlasting d upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and e and sighing shall flee away.
