They shall feed in the ways,
And in all high hills shall be their pasture;
10They shall not hunger nor thirst,
Neither shall the heat nor sun smite them;
For He that hath compassion on them will lead them,
Even by the springs of water will He guide them.
11And I will make all My mountains a way,
And My highways shall be raised on high.
12Behold, these shall come from far;
And, lo, these from the north and from the west,
And these from the land of Sinim.
13Sing, O heavens, and be joyful, O earth,
And break forth into singing, O mountains;
For the Lord hath comforted His people,
And hath compassion upon His afflicted.
14But Zion said: 'The Lord hath forsaken me,
And the Lord hath forgotten me.'
15Can a woman forget her sucking child,
That she should not have compassion on the son of her womb?
Yea, these may forget,
Yet will not I forget thee.
16Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of My hands;
Thy walls are continually before Me.
17Thy children make haste;
Thy destroyers and they that made thee waste shall go forth from thee.
18Lift up thine eyes round about, and behold:
All these gather themselves together, and come to thee.
As I live, saith the Lord,
Thou shalt surely clothe thee with them all as with an ornament,
And gird thyself with them, like a bride.
19For thy waste and thy desolate places
And thy land that hath been destroyed—
Surely now shalt thou be too strait for the inhabitants,
And they that swallowed thee up shall be far away.
20The children of thy bereavement
Shall yet say in thine ears:
'The place is too strait for me;
Give place to me that I may dwell.'
21Then shalt thou say in thy heart:
'Who hath begotten me these,
Seeing I have been bereaved of my children, and am solitary,
An exile, and wandering to and fro?
And who hath brought up these?
Behold, I was left alone;
These, where were they?'
22Thus saith the Lord God:
Behold, I will lift up My hand to the nations,
And set up Mine ensign to the peoples,
And they shall bring thy sons in their bosom,
And thy daughters shall be carried upon their shoulders.
23And kings shall be thy foster-fathers,
And their queens thy nursing mothers;
They shall bow down to thee with their face to the earth,
And lick the dust of thy feet;
And thou shalt know that I am the Lord,
