Isaiah 35

The Glory of Zion

1The wilderness and the land will be glad;

the desert will rejoice and blossom like a rose.

2It will bloom profusely

and rejoice with joy and singing.

The glory of Lebanon will be given to it,

the splendor of Carmel and Sharon.

They will see the glory of the LORD,

the splendor of our God.

3Strengthen the limp hands

and steady the feeble knees!a

4Say to those with anxious hearts:

“Be strong, do not fear!

Behold, your God will come with vengeance.

With divine retribution He will come to save you.”

5Then the eyes of the blind will be opened

and the ears of the deaf unstopped.

6Then the lame will leap like a deer

and the mute tongue will shout for joy.

For waters will gush forth in the wilderness,

and streams in the desert.

7The parched ground will become a pool,

the thirsty land springs of water.

In the haunt where jackalsb once lay,

there will be grass and reeds and papyrus.

8And there will be a highway

called the Way of Holiness.

The unclean will not travel it—

only those who walk in the Way—

and fools will not stray onto it.

9No lion will be there,

and no vicious beast will go up on it.

Such will not be found there,

but the redeemed will walk upon it.

10So the redeemed of the LORD will return

and enter Zion with singing,

crowned with everlasting joy.

Gladness and joy will overtake them,

and sorrow and sighing will flee.
