God’s People Are Comforted

40Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God.H5162H5162H5971H559H430 2Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the LORD's hand double for all her sins.H1696H3820H3389H7121H6635H4390H5771H7521H3947H3068H3027H3718H2403 3The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.H6963H7121H4057H6437H1870H3068H3474H6160H4546H430 4Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:H1516H5375H2022H1389H8213H6121H4334H7406H1237 5And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.H3519H3068H1540H1320H7200H3162H6310H3068H1696 6The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field:H6963H559H7121H559H7121H1320H2682H2617H6731H7704 7The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: because the spirit of the LORD bloweth upon it: surely the people is grass.H2682H3001H6731H5034H7307H3068H5380H403H5971H2682 8The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.H2682H3001H6731H5034H1697H430H6965H5769 9O Zion, that bringest good tidings, get thee up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God!H6726H1319H5927H1364H2022H3389H1319H7311H6963H3581H7311H3372H559H5892H3063H430 10Behold, the Lord GOD will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.H136H3069H935H2389H2220H4910H7939H6468H6440 11He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.H7462H5739H7462H6908H2922H2220H5375H2436H5095H5763 12Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?H4058H4325H8168H8505H8064H2239H3557H6083H776H7991H8254H2022H6425H1389H3976 13Who hath directed the Spirit of the LORD, or being his counsellor hath taught him?H8505H7307H3068H376H6098H3045 14With whom took he counsel, and who instructed him, and taught him in the path of judgment, and taught him knowledge, and shewed to him the way of understanding?H3289H995H3925H734H4941H3925H1847H3045H1870H8394 15Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing.H1471H4752H1805H2803H7834H3976H5190H339H1851 16And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient for a burnt offering.H3844H369H1767H1197H2416H1767H5930 17All nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity.H1471H2803H657H8414 18To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him?H1819H410H1823H6186 19The workman melteth a graven image, and the goldsmith spreadeth it over with gold, and casteth silver chains.H2796H5258H6459H6884H7554H2091H6884H3701H7577 20He that is so impoverished that he hath no oblation chooseth a tree that will not rot; he seeketh unto him a cunning workman to prepare a graven image, that shall not be moved.H5533H5534H8641H977H6086H7537H1245H2450H2796H3559H6459H4131 21Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth?H3045H8085H5046H7218H995H4146H776 22It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:H3427H2329H776H3427H2284H5186H8064H1852H4969H168H3427 23That bringeth the princes to nothing; he maketh the judges of the earth as vanity.H5414H7336H6213H8199H776H8414 24Yea, they shall not be planted; yea, they shall not be sown: yea, their stock shall not take root in the earth: and he shall also blow upon them, and they shall wither, and the whirlwind shall take them away as stubble.H5193H2232H1503H8327H776H5398H3001H5591H5375H7179 25To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One.H1819H7737H559H6918 26Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.H5375H5869H4791H7200H1254H3318H6635H4557H7121H8034H7230H202H533H3581H376H5737 27Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the LORD, and my judgment is passed over from my God?H559H3290H1696H3478H1870H5641H3068H4941H5674H430 28Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.H3045H8085H5769H430H3068H1254H7098H776H3286H3021H2714H8394 29He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.H5414H3581H3287H202H7235H6109 30Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:H5288H3286H3021H970H3782H3782 31But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.H6960H3068H2498H3581H5927H83H5404H7323H3021H3212H3286
